    All I know is that 86 was a great year. 86ers are deep on here.

    I see a lot of people saying they'd "give" family members money.

    Thats not what you want to do.

    You want to set up a trust fund so they get a monthly payment. You can set up a trust fund so your mother gets, say, $10,000 a month for the rest of her life. According to my math, $10,000 per month for 20 years is $2.4 million. That's better than giving her $2.4 million up front because she can blow it all in a matter of days and then she'll want more and you'd feel obligated to give it to her.

    So if you win, don't "give" anybody anything. Set up a trust fund.

    Now that I think about it, I could set up a trust fund for my brother. I'd give him $10,000 a month. He's about 45 now so $10,000 per month for 40 years is only $4.8 million. That makes more sense than giving him the money in one lump sum.

    I only remember the 90s too, never saw any 80s football that I remember... My earliest memories of watching football as a kid was 92ish, at about 5 or 6, but as a fan still got videos and schitt and researched history...

    Didier Drogba is to be picked for the MLS All-Stars game against Arsenal - Arsenal might as well just give up now.

    He's old and washed up. Nothing to fear.



    That activator juice he puts in his hair will keep him youthful and agile, just look how James Brown was moving deep into his 60's, might have to look into perming my hair and using activator juice.

    Smh

    Bro I'm assuming that nobody posting in the football forum was born before 1980, seeing as pretty much nobody has referenced a game or player before 1990, so you know yo gotta do what you gotta do to preserve your youthful appearance , aint nobody getting any younger in this bitch.

    Shots fired at the United fans on here.

    I assumed bigev and Josh were the old heads on here. I doubt anyone is under 25.

    Most of us United fans are always talking about our older legends like Best, Charlton, Edwards, Law, Robson, Whiteside, Stiles our great keeper Stepney etc I like to think we are especially appreciative of our past players due to the Munich air crash...

    IMO younger Arsenal fans are the ones that never talk about their pre 90s players...

    @arsenal fans on here... who are your favourite pre 90s players???

    Most of us? I may be wrong but I think you're the only that talks about those guys. And if we're talking offline? 95% of United fans don't speak about them. That includes people who are 40 and older.

    Im the only United fan that talks about our past??? Nah, Im sure Ive seen DNB1 and Cellar talk about our past, especially paying tribute to Munich and Best & Charlton etc... And TRUST my United fans in my family talk about our past, and fans I chop it up with at work and in the gym etc especially old fans who watched us in the 70s and 80s...

    Also every year most United fans pay tribute to the Munich players that past...

    The 80s was our golden age. With Peter Reid, Andy Gray, and Lineker for a season. Don't think we'll get back to that era, but a couple of trophies would be nice.

    This is why they need to show Arsene more love and respect. They dont talk about their pre Wenger era/players bcos they played some of the most negative, unattractive football in the league.

    Now that Wenger has them playing "Beautiful football", and they like to look down and criticize others who dont, Wont make sense for them to bring up their "UGLY" past.

    U know what, George Graham deserves more respect. Yes his teams played such defensive football, but that dude won trophies.

    Yeah I dont know much about Arsenals past, only players pre 90s players I know are Rocastle (rip), Brady, and their keeper Jennings... And most Arsenal fans I know dont really talk about their pre 90s as far I know... I may be wrong though...

    A lotta the 80s black guys over here are Liverpool fans. My oldest brother and my dad support Liverpool. These niggas been mad for so long lol who wudda thought the title you won in 90, is it?, would end up bein' your last for so long

    Well, as frustrating as it is for us - we have won some major trophies since 1990. I have convinced my self that UEFA Champ Trophy >> EPL Trophy. It would be nice for Klopp to get us an EPL trophy.

    Dude, late 80's Pool was packed with some legends; from Grobbelarr to Barnes to Rush - our playing style back then had so much fluidity.

    I am not even past 31 and I remember this shit to a T.

    I wasn't even born when Liverpool last won the league. (Born 94). And I wasn't watching football like that till 2010. So I missed the famous CL win, years of Gerrard (prime) Michael Owen, Xabi Alonso etc and just started watching when Fernando Torres was leaving and Rafa was sacked. All I knew as a casual fan was Barcelona with Ronaldinho and of course the world cups. It also helped that NBC actually aired PL matches.

    Still a work in progress as far as Football knowledge outside Liverpool and Barcelona are concerned. Oh and most of my friends who actually were huge football fans in high-school and middle school were Manchester United and Chelsea fans. But I didn't like them mofos lol.

    Ive been in Anfield once and it was fckn amazing, the stands are like a half a meter away from the touch line, right on top of the pitch, so you can literally reach out and pimp slap one of the subs warming up... Plus they did takeaway shepherds pie in when most clubs do a dodgy burger!!! haha
