Gobby Rags Come Out To Play Again Over The Title

12 games to go and yet again, we're treated this week to another round of rags heading for the MU mafia hacks to talk title and declare their intent...

First up, African Nations Cup twitter goading keyboard warrior, every rags favourite scouser, Wayne Rugney:

'We're confident that we can push on now, and start being a bit more consistent towards the end of the season...we are still in a great position in the league, we are only a couple of points behind City and a lot of games to go. We want to retain the Premier League and do well in the Europa League. These are the two competitions we are left in and we want to do well, go far and hopefully win them.'

The erstwhile transfer-ransom requester and perennial England flop has crawling words for 70 year old manager Lord Taggart in the scheme of things:

'His mentality for the game, his commitment and desire... For me personally, he's been brilliant. He's a great leader for our team.'

Meanwhile, following the line of thirty something Stretford veterans who've queued up to bang on about how they'll see off City this season, 50 year old Paul Scholes has this to say:

'We realise we may have to win every game to win the league, but we are ready and prepared to do that...You saw that when we conceded the goal. How did we react? We started playing. That experience hopefully helps us.'

Let's see if his legs hold out or he ends up gasping into retirement the way Neville did, first...

Finally, in an effort to stop him mithering our forums, we give the stage to self styled spokesman for all united fans, Nobby Allcock:

'Alright lads? After the ten man defeat at the theatre, I said to Boyley and the boys that we wouldn't lose another game until May. Okay, I underestimated the fact that we had to cope with a season long injury crisis and that we'd have to select the new babes strategically. All negotiated and here we are still on target for number 20. Anyone who knows anything about football knows that our superior will to win will see us pull clear any weekend now. 97 points.'

Right you all are, rags. Keep the team talk's coming.

They never shut up do they? While our lads are staying quiet and getting on with it, Fergie and his soldiers are attempting every one of their yearly "mind games" tricks to try and overcome the reality that we are a better team than them, that we have gotten this far without the constant help of referees, the harassment and surrounding of said referees in every game, or suspicious advantages (6 post-CL away days for us vs. 6 post-CL home days for them).

The combined age of their two goal scorers at the weekend was 75. The combined age of our three goalscorers was 69. They really are running on empty, and the weekly shrieking from the rag camp about "How they've got the experience to win thier 20th" shows just exactly how desparate their situation is. They have no future and know this is their one last shot at winning anything for a very long time before they make way for Manchester City. TBH, I find their continual attempts at mind-games incredibly hilarious, and all I can say is that they were incredibly lucky to get through against Ajax and even luckier to beat Norwich on Sunday. Stretford are finished and they know it.

If it's Tuesday, it must be..... Danny Welbeck's turn to gob-off. They don't half love the sound of their own voices over at the swamp - perhaps they should be carbon taxed, as surely all that hot air they're spouting must be contributing to global warming!
