Re: Summer of discontent...

In all seriousness, I wonder if Ole hasn’t hurt his position with the Glazers. It sounds like he insisted on Sancho, and we probably all know about it because he was egged on by the other old United boys in the media. I think insisting on a megastar might not have impressed his bosses. They could ha...

And I didn’t specify it had to be girls, so that’s not sexist or homophobic.

Re: Summer of discontent...

About Barca's debt, it's been the case for decades. They're never gonna have to pay it off cos they're essentially nationalised. As Rant Ed once said football clubs are like museums; prestigious, full of history and terrible businesses. Museums aren't run for profit, they're there to educate & ente...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Do we have two weeks to sign a player from any English club? Or just championship clubs? Just the football League. So Championship and below. But I believe we only have until end of today (Tuesday) to register players for our CL squad. So if we want Sarr, it’ll likely be today or not at all. Oh ok,...

Re: OGS.....

I think that after more than a season and a half, Ole has been good at bringing back some sense of competitive team mindset. The competitive philosophy is good. I just don't see much sign yet of the tactics and game management being there. And I feel that now we'll start to lose the positive team mi...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I hope we've signed Amad Traoré. He's left-footed at least. I don't have any real opinion on Sarr. Probably better than Valencia.

We'll soon just be putting them into the mixer for Cavani to have a go, you just know it.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I'm not the only one who doesn't actually know for certain who we've signed, right? So its van de Beek and Telles for certain, then maybe Cavani, maybe Pellistri, maybe Traoré? I can see some of them being handy, and the last two being prospects who might get into the first team this season. But it'...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Good that Smalling is gone. I’m ok us being stubborn. At some point we had to break the reputation for being mugs. There’s reports now of people in the sport complaining we’ve gone from one extreme to the other, but maybe it’s necessary for us to get a reputation for being tight in order to stop be...
