Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

The quality of the PL will fall. The richest clubs will hoover up all the decent English players. The bottom 12 or so clubs will be championship level, or maybe not even that. Even championship clubs have plenty of quality foreign players. If the top clubs joined some European super league, and just...

Could be good for the British game. Probably would put some downward pressure on wages too, which would also be good.
Nah, it'll be the opposite. The best English players will be even more overpaid and overvalued than they are now. The top clubs will be competing for them.

Re: Cavani

How could "Negroni" be offensive when the name is derived from an Italian surname which still exists? I suppose you could use the word in an offensive way if that intention is understood by the subject you're aiming it at but it would be a huge misrepresentation of the word's origins and, moving fo...

Re: V Leipzig

So I just checked. Leipzig have played 7 matches at home this season, league and CL. They’ve won all seven. 18 goals scored, 4 conceded. But they’ve been shit on the road. So we’ve got a difficult task, and us beating them at Old Trafford shouldn’t bring much consolation. I’ll be depressed if we’re ...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I was just watching Amad Diablo playing for Atalanta. He’s definitely talented, but he’s also definitely a kid still. And he’s small. It makes me think that we bought him and the Uruguayan kid of the same age because we’re spending big on youth before that option is closed down. Maybe we wouldn’t ha...

Re: Vs PSG

Losing a match with McT and Fred on while Matic, Pogba, and Beek sit on the bench... it’s true that Ferguson somehow often got away with playing shite in midfield, but he was magic. It wasn’t exactly Plan A.

Re: vs Southampton

A traditional CF like Cavani was the difference. The way he gambled that he'd get his head on Fernandes' shot was class. It's great to have him and a modern CF like Martial that sprints at players and causes mayhem. Or rather penalties. Two great options. We all slagged off signing Cavani but havin...

Re: Fixing midfield and defense

Matic isn't playing nowadays. He's playing Fred and McT both of whom are much faster than Matic and perhaps Lindelof (who, btw, isn't a good defender or passer). I thougt McT would be a top player but I feel he's regressed this year. He suddenly doesn't look that good to me. His passing has gotten ...

Fixing midfield and defense

There’s a few spots on the team that could do with an upgrade, like right wing and maybe an attacking right back. But I think our biggest problem consistently is with our back two midfielders and our centre backs. It’s fine if we sit deep, but otherwise that whole section of the team just doesn’t fu...
