Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Apparently we are back in for Tielmans, happy to pay £65m, a couple of years after he was offered to us for £15m. The decision making at the club is fucking ridiculous. Yeah it was obvious at the time that he was a good player. He’d be an excellent 8 for us. Good replacement for Pogba too. I’d stil...

Re: Euros 2021

England must be in with a real shout at this. Germany meanwhile seem to be showing signs of imploding. Disagreements between the Bayern contingent’s preference for playing a back 4 and the trainer’s plans for a back 3... Yeah England have a very good squad. The manager is worthless, but the tournam...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

It could end up like de Beek. Players like de Beek and Sancho can look great at Ajax and Dortmund, playing in a well-developed tactical system. But then they struggle when they come to United, where the tactical plan is for 6 players to park the bus and the other four to show “character” and “magic”.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I've only ever seen Sancho for England and he looks shit. What am I missing? 90m....?! I think I'd rather just keep Lingard.... I haven’t seen him look great for England either, which is a bit concerning given the well-known phenomenon of players looking great at Dortmund but ordinary when they tra...

Re: Will the Glazers sell?

That does sound interesting. The money from the fans’ shares better go to the club though, not pocketing by the glazers! I’m not going to get carried away, but it sounds like maybe something more meaningful than the usual PR bollocks.

Re: OGS.....

Emery and his team watched 17 previous United games. From that they would have known with 100% certainty what our formation would have been and 95% would have known who was going to play. No surprises, no traps set and an easy exercise in sorting your tactics to emasculate us. And that is the way i...

Re: OGS.....

Hi bman...good to see that eternal optimism still has its place. I, on the other hand, feel terminally pessimistic about where we are and how this will pan out. But, hey, who knows? Maybe the hobbit will turn out to be a tactical genius and the owners will discover a love of football. Whether that ...

Re: OGS.....

The inability to use the squad or affect a game that’s already started is extremely frustrating. The EL final was damning. Emery had us totally figured out. They sat deep, didn’t give us room to run or counter... and Ole had no response. Nothing. Emery just took our manager out of the game. A 120 mi...
