Re: OGS.....

Yeah Castles isn’t very suitable about pressing Jose Mourinho’s talking points, but I find the podcast worth a listen. He does seem to get a good amount of genuine insider gossip, you just have to try to take the good bits and adjust for the agenda. The other bloke on the podcast kicks Castles’ arse...

Re: vs Young Boys

The game once again demonstrated the hobbit’s severe limitations. He needs to go. Yeah I just don’t feel that this is going anywhere. We’ve just been looking at the same thing for three years. We keep buying better players, so there’s some improvement. We nick more goals, but I’m still just looking...

Re: OGS.....

When players leave United they tend to increase in value — Lukaku being a good example, but also Smalling, Lingard etc. But when they sign with us they drop in value. How much do you think Maguire or Pogba would go for on the market now (if Pogba wasn’t in his last year)? We paid something like 50M ...

Re: OGS.....

Let’s be real, Ole is a nostalgia signing. If he stepped down today, would any other PL club hire him? Whenever a situation occurs that a well coached club should be prepared for — set pieces, playing with 10 men — we look a shambles. For me that’s more damning than any particular result. It’s just ...

Re: vs Young Boys

I wasn’t able to watch the match but it looks like a shitshow. Early goal looks good, then AWB sent off. But even a man down, against that opposition, surely we should see the game out with at least some kind of result? The stats are terrible, for whatever stats are worth. All due respect to YB, but...

Re: Assessing our squad

The fact that Ole subbed Beek for Bruno in the last ten minutes probably means he’s not very convinced by Beek’s suggestion that he could play as a 6 or 8.

Re: vs Young Boys

Well they ought to be weak opposition, but you also don’t want to change too many players because you want to bank those 3 points and start the campaign well. So I think Ole will start with a strong line up and hope to sub some of the bigger players in the second half. We’ve also always looked shit ...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

The type of player the club has gone for since Ole took over, I’d say they are intent on getting Declan Rice. I’d say they were seriously interested in the young French player too (I’m blanking on his name atm), but he fits the profile too. I think they’ve decided they’d rather spend big money on s...

Re: Assessing our squad

Obviously it’s very early days. But City, Chelsea, and Liverpool look on their game. I feel like at least two of them will finish with more than 80 points, at least. It’s good for us that our relatively soft opening games give us more time to “click” without dropping a lot of points. The midfield si...
