When Ole has won the Treble two years in a row... That first game of the third season... will be his First Real Test®

I must say, it’s not something that ever really bothers me when I see it I just scroll past, but now it’ll probably make me smile and let out a bit of a chuckle knowing it winds certain posters up :D

Pfft. You guy's don't know you're born. I still remember when you couldn't mention Bellion's name without someone replying:

... he's bloody quick though.

Why am I remembering Fergie in his leaving speech with the "support your new manager" bit, saying how Moyesie's real test would be winning 3 titles in a row.

3 games in a row wasn't a bloody given!

Or Lingard - being a young lad.

It’s a phase and it will pass just like the “he could’ve killed him” joke . This thread just prolongs it :lol:

This joke isn't funny at all I don't get why people who keep saying it think we laugh on it.

Stop posting it in threads. Its not funny.
It was never funny. Stop it.

Youre only embarrassing yourselves when you post this statement.
How many relatives does he have?

Its not as embarrassing as the dead horse continuously flogged.
People still laugh at the jokes about Lingard being a young prospect here, this place is all about beating a dead horse, it’s part of the charm.

The constant demand here that Ole be sacked is a far worse offense than this. But yeah, the joke is old now and should be laid to rest.

I have been present at plenty of old family party aftermaths where the saying ‘people still laugh about ...’ is proven to be true and it still makes me cringe for putting them out of my misery.

I've never posted it but I still find it funny.

Paper-thin in-jokes are basically all that holds any given online forum together. Let the people have their fun.

As a wise man once said, your next test is always your first real test
Same with "biggest game of the season". It can be used to describe basically half of the games in a season if you use them a few days before.

Especially this season. The table is insanely tight for this time of the year.

His first real test will be trying to defend the title next year.

Every game will be Ole's first real test for us. Even his last game in charge. You just have to get used to it :p

I think its hilarious

the evolution has been : people that nailed their colours to the mast on wanting ole out trying to downplay every good result directly afterwards, it starting to sound so ridiculous that they couldn't keep it, those same people getting upset at the joke as united climbed the table
