Re: Season summary....

But in Jose's defence, I do think he's stepping into a situation that's more like the one Ferguson had in the 80s. We're definitely rebuilding almost the entire team in a way that's rare for big clubs these days. Ferguson retiring coincided with nearly all of the main players of his winning team ret...

Re: is rashford gonna make it then

The problem is, compared to the past, we need the young players to really perform every match, to carry the team.

Re: consolation pot

Frustrating, we thoroughly outplayed them. No menace from our front players.

Re: consolation pot

Valencia, Smalling, Jones, Young.

Never looks imposing on paper does it?
