Re: OGS.....

What Chelsea has done last season has discredited the whole long-term rebuild thing. They brought in a top manager mid-season, and he instantly turned their shitty defence into the league’s best defence, and then won them the CL. Tactics, coaching, it does actually matter.

Re: OGS.....

I think Ole is doing well in terms of team spirit, signings, morale, and all that. But I’ve yet to see any indication that he can get us playing progressive, quality football. I’d like to see us using the ball like a top team, and see some evidence of players being coached to play in different posit...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I mean people said Herrera wasn’t that special and we could easily replace him with someone better. And that was true. But we didn’t replace him. Fred and McT don’t have the movement and passing that Herrera did. Our midfield has been getting less fluid and more shitehousey. Bruno has obviously done...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I actually think that’s unfair. It’s not like France and Juventus played similarly. I think he’s just had two managers at United that have been very defensive. Plus some of the players around him aren’t great. He has been consistently good when he’s not required to sit really deep. Better to sell hi...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Although to be fair to McFred, neither is a holding midfielder by trade, they’re both just doing a job there and they tend to look better players when they’re able to play a bit further up the pitch.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I don't understand our interest in Neves, he's another ball playing midfielder so either Ole is expecting Pogba to go and/or Donny to go. We’re Manchester United’s. Shouldn’t all our midfielders be “ball playing midfielders”??? I know what you’re saying though, shocking that Fred and McT can’t stri...

We should have kept Rojo, here he is chinning a security guard after Boca lost a game

Keano would approve. You can’t accuse him of not caring at least.

Re: Other Teams' Stuff

Interesting situation at Liverpool: Salah, Mane, Firminho, Fabinho, van Dijk and Henderson's contracts all expire in 2023, and their shithead neolib yank owners are reluctant to give them new contracts cos they're all either approaching 30 or 30+. So they're going to let some leave. Henderson looks...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I don't understand our interest in Neves, he's another ball playing midfielder so either Ole is expecting Pogba to go and/or Donny to go. Tbf neither have played that well. Donny doesn't even get to play and Pogba has been a decent player over 5 years. And of course he's expecting Pogba to go. He's...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I hope you’re wrong. Given that Ole doesn’t seem to rate any of our CBs beside Maguire and (maybe) Lindelof, we could probably do with two of them even. To be fair to Varane, it’s probably a dodgy prospect from a football perspective. He’s been playing alongside Ramos for years, one of the very best...
