Re: No defence for our defence....

I was ridiculed on here for pointing out in Gaal's second season that Valencia had become a good right back. But I felt looking at him last season that his legs were going. I don't think he can get up and down the pitch for 38 matches. Young seems to be in good shape still, still got his pace and hi...

Re: United set to create DoF role

Yeah I'd love Van Der Sar, that could be a great move for the club. You'd have to wonder if he'd give up being top man at Ajax to play third fiddle to the CEO and manager at United though, or get caught up in the melodrama.

Re: No defence for our defence....

So with no new defensive signings, what's our best back four then? I'm really not sure who I think is the best for any of the positions. It's hard to judge a CB in isolation, but we've no clear idea what the best partnership is. I would really like at least one CB who is confident playing the ball. ...

Re: vs Leicester

Definitely damaged jose’s authority over transfers that the club pushed the boat out to sign Sanchez and he’s not delivered the goods yet, while marginalizing Rashford and Martial.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who won’t even be able to watch tonight’s match.

Re: vs Leicester

"If they play tomorrow they play after four days," Mourinho added of the returning players. "One thing is what you can expect from the players with a proper pre-season and another is what you expect from a player with three or four days training." I swear he's the only manager moaning about this. N...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I think the club might be hedging for a third season Mourinho meltdown. Think how much worse it would be to drop the beat part of 150 M on two thirty year olds only for the manager to walk out in November. Ribalta leaving for St Petersburg is not a good sign, he was the guy who was supposed to bring...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I'm actually not too critical of the club. It's disappointing, but this window was fucked for everyone. Liverpool's window looks better because Keita is coming in, but they got him last summer. I can't see any player who moved that I feel we missed out on.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Maybe it's just as well that we're forced to get more out of the players we have. Fergie won titles and got to CL finals with weaker looking squads than this. Let's get some positivity into the team ffs, by which I mean attitude as much as tactics.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I would have liked Alderweireld, he would have brought experience, composure, some ball playing quality. But not that fussed about the other CBs we've been linked to, and most of the links are probably bullshit anyway, just clubs and agents using United's name to strike a better deal with someone el...
