Jam's trying to goad United fans in to an argument which hasn't been that forthcoming in this thread. He doesn't seem to care about what Giggs has done (which is completely wrong and no United fan is defending him), rather he's more concerned with trying to get a reaction from the United fans on this forum.

Reeling out extra reasons = pointing to previously aired allegations (on TV) and stating facts.

How dare we!

Giggs is a bad man. Some of us still love (as much as you can love someone you don't personally know) him. Get over it.

He is without a doubt up there with him. Though I would argue Terry has more strings to his banana split bow.

The Sun wrote:CHEATING Ryan Giggs' brother dumped his wife last night after learning the soccer star had bedded her for eight years.

Rhodri Giggs, 34, was devastated at being betrayed by both his brother and his wife of ten months Natasha, 28.

Manchester United winger Ryan, 37, was battling to save his marriage - already rocked by the affair with model Imogen Thomas he tried to hide with a super-injunction.

Shocked Rhodri was last night struggling to come to terms with the bombshell news.

He said bitterly: "I was with her on Saturday - but I'm not with her now."

It emerged yesterday that Natasha and shamed Giggs cheated behind Rhodri's back for eight years.

The revelation came after Giggs was unmasked as the mystery lover of Big Brother model Imogen Thomas

Legal experts said last night that by taking out a controversial super-injunction to gag Imogen he may have been hoping to keep the lid on his other philandering.

It could even have been used to stop Natasha finding out she had been betrayed too.

Rhodri was being supported last night by loyal pals - including TV actor Will Mellor, who was best man at his wedding last September.

Meanwhile Giggs - his carefully cultivated Mr Clean image reduced to tatters - was in Spain fighting to save HIS marriage to Stacey Cooke, 32.

The £80,000-a-week Welsh winger flew by private jet from Manchester to join Stacey and their two children Libby, eight, and Zach, four.

Heartbroken Stacey was already reeling from the news of Giggs' fling with Imogen, 28.

Despite winning a High Court order, Giggs was outed after being named in Parliament last month.

Unicef ambassador Giggs, made an OBE in 2007 and BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 2009, previously claimed his family was "the most important thing to me".


But furious delivery van driver Rhodri has told friends he may now spill the beans on "the real Ryan Giggs".

One pal said: "He's devastated and can't believe the extent of his humiliation - by both of them.

"Rhodri said, 'I know me and Ryan have had our ups and downs but this is the lowest of the low'.

He had suspicions that something may have gone on between Ryan and Natasha. But he never thought it was to this extent. His head is in a mess."

Rhodri had a less glamorous football career than his famous brother, playing for Torquay United.

He was too upset to answer the door yesterday at his Manchester home, where a Man United flag was in a window.

But a Valentine's Day posting on Facebook made clear he had believed he was happily married.

He wrote: "The only thing I wanted to change when I met my wife was her name."

Last night Giggs' aunt Joanna Wilson called him a "dirty dog".

She said: "He has no morals. It was one thing having an affair with Imogen, but this is with his brother's wife, for God's sake.

"And it went on for such a long time. We are all gutted for Rhodri."

Actor Will, 35, who played Gaz in BBC sitcom Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, dashed to Manchester to support his pal.

It will hurt kids most

By DEIDRE SANDERS, Sun Agony Aunt

RYAN Giggs traded on his family man image for years and it's his family who will pay the most painful price for his lying and cheating.

I feel sorry for his young children. Their father's deception will have undermined their faith in the world around them for ever.

Brothers tend to be attracted to the same women, but that is no excuse for Giggs' hypocrisy.

He claims to value his family above all else - yet his actions were calculated to do the most damage possible to his wife, children and brother.

Imogen: I just want to curl up and die

EX-MISTRESS Imogen Thomas was heartbroken yesterday after learning that Giggs had also cheated with his brother's wife.

The former Miss Wales posted on Twitter: "I just wanna curl up and die today."

Her publicist Max Clifford said: "She was upset and shocked. She had absolutely no idea."

Mr Clifford also predicted that the super-injunction Giggs obtained to gag Imogen over their affair would turn out to be "the worst own goal of his life".

Poor Imogen (seriously, strawberry float off).

After all the gooseberry fool Chelsea fans have had to put up with in regards to Terry and Cole's behaviour... I don't blame him.

I always thought he traded on his "being pretty good at football" image. I don't recall the family man thing ever being mentioned until now.

Through sponsorship deals?

When Giggs signed a £200,000 agreement with Cyma in 2009, general manger James Law praised him for his “role model attitude towards loyalty, fair play and discipline”.

Ta for the link.

I'd have thought he was on more then £80k.

So other than the sponsors side of it, did he put himself forward in a more personal manner? What I mean is... was he as much of a media whore as Beckham is? To me those characteristics describe his sporting side, though I guess the sponsors would argue they buy the full package. Hmmm.

Again, just to be 100% clear, what he's done is Bad, but this talk about him trading on his family man image doesn't ring entirely true. But then I pay almost no attention to the showbiz side of football so I may have missed it.

John Terry never slept with Bridge's ex, though. The tabloids issued apologies and admitted it never happened.

I heard a rumour that Giggs is going to be given the number 8 shirt for next season? But in all seriousness this really shouldn't matter much, him and the rest of his team mates do the double year in year out anyway!

I have just been through all the posts up until yours.

1 person mentioned the 19 titles
0 mentioned JT apart from you

Are you trying to get Man Utd fans to argue with you? Are you looking for an argument?


In fact your first two posts

In fairness, he said people previously slated JT (which they did). He also said that people have said 'I don't care' and 'none of my business', which you have ignored.

And it is true that Man U fans here have reacted far less to this than to JT (with some exceptions), but then that's just the nature of football fans!

In Fairness Chelsea fans also reacted far less to JT than this. Swings and roundabouts.

I wasn't that bothered by the JT thing but was annoyed with Ashley Cole for obvious reasons.

but it seems jamcc is looking for an argument.

As a long time Giggs fan I am horrified, more so about this news than the one before.

My facebook status is:

I don't think I can defend Giggs any-more, As brilliant a player he is, cheating on your wife with your brothers wife is unforgivable

I do. I was hoping for one more season but I think he will end it now.
