In the first half Porto tore us apart and totally raped us up every hole imaginable. They should have been 4-0 up by the time we equalised.

How do you know that Portugal wasn't a strong league back then anyway?
Don't know about the league, comparing to others, back in the late 30s, early 40s. I DO know that if the European Champions Cup had started 10 years before, we'd have a few ourselves, but enough :eek:fftopic2:

No everybody here speaks their mind, its the point of a discussion forum. You are just the ones who talk to the other members with complete disrespect.
Yet I saw what's on my mind. If I think some member is a ****, or acting like a nob, I'll say it to them. Just because I say mine with a bit of force doesn't mean I mean to be disrespectful/whatever.

I never said it wasn't a strong league whenever. i'm talking about now.

Well, next time you don't want to be disrespectful, in this case, to our league - which I agree is well bellow in terms of quality - stupid sub-standard... ;)

Peejay gave a nice reply, with humour in it, as I intended my little pintch to be... After all, we have so little to be proud of, but our glorious past is one trully of legends. In this fella's case, he was approached by a multitude of clubs, but he always refused to to leave. He even refused to join porto before he had a formal contract with Sporting, because he'd given his word.

Football is an amazing game nowadays, fast, exciting, but I would have loved to have lived in an era where a man's word was trully a bond.

Anyways, carry on!!!

:thumbsup::thumbsup:

Back then, I honestly don't know, european wise. I'd imagine Sporting at least had quite the reputation, since we got invited to 1st edition of the European Champions Cup in a season in which we didn't win the league. That in itself means a lot.

As for now, we're not really a league... There's porto. Then there's Sporting and sometimes benfica trying to catch up AND stay ahead of a few others which are very good, for their budgets, but still small in comparison, namely Braga and Guimarães.

Anyways, no blood, no report. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

glad i missed this thread
Rooney is a talisman and Icon of our team but he has a long way to go before he'll be considered one of our greatest, he will be eventually but he has a lot of work to do first

I'd take a wild guess not many people have seen Dennis Viollet playing whereas everyone has seen Rooney playing.

I dont think he's anywhere near our top ever Striker but folk will vote for who they have seen playing for United.

I'm sure there is atleast 24 people who have seen Dennis Law playing. There is a statue of the man outside the stadium, everyone knows who he is and what he achieved in football.

The amount of votes for Ruud is ridiculous. He was good and scored a fantastic amount but he was the focal point of the team and had everyone looking for him to pass to.

true but does that make Ronaldo's 42 goals less significant? regardless of how we played as a team he was individually a clinical striker and is a true great, not the greatest though, in fact if it was about them overall I would probably even choose Cantona over him unless you meant goalscoring wise, though the likes of Law are the true greatest ones really, though I can't comment as much about those and Solskjaer's a cult hero too! No need for an explanation why there!

In all honestly I think it's an insult to Law having RVN ahead of him in the greatest team.

No matter how you compare them, Law takes it.

Won more. Scored more* and stayed for longer.

*Law scored on average every 1.8 games for us, RVN scored every 1.6 games so thats close too.

Who cares?

RVN was one of our best strikers. Why can't people vote for him? :confused: Got nothing to do if he was the focal point or anything :confused:
