ole out

Bad performance ftom you Ashley vs PSG i think Valencia is better than you

Mata is my favourite player, but he should go or Ole must put him at CAM instead right winger. He has no pace but he is intelligent. He looks like have no idea at RW position Sanchez a must player to go

2nd to Comment. RIP



ashley young your play is pathetic nowadays

Any true UTD fan understands the importance of this great man. Shame people find the need to comment about anything other than in reply to what the post is about!!!!!

rest in piece HARRISON. You'd think Young would be moved by your mean comments. He is used to that. So just back off and remain a fan 'cause those comments won't change anything about who he is.

Rip Eric u will be missed


we messed up in our game with the PSG,pull up your socks you guys,but the fact still remains, we are still the red devils


hey young why dont you tell ole gunar we want valencia in the game please


Rip legend

True legend RIP Eric ⚽⚽⚽🏆🏆🏆😥😥

Shine on your way rip legend


Rip with your talent

Rest in Peace Sir Eric Harrison

Sad day for all true United fans RIP

Rip we keep going no matter what


This World is not easy, young, be strong. God keep his soul in peace.
