    The whole of our team is running the least kilometres out of all other clubs in the Premier league. So it's not just Pogba and in one way or another is due to Mourinho and the coaching staff. The only player that has ran his socks off (at least...

    "Nobody knew before this season" De Bruyne was tearing it up in the Bundesliga and was arguably the best player in the league the season before he went to City for the club record amount at the time of £54m. He was an instant sucess after leaving...

    I think he will fully transition into a playmaker when he loses a bit of pace and that incredible acceleration he has from a stand-still. Don't know when that will happen but age will start affecting his body at some point.

  4. diplomat replied to the thread Lionel Messi - Performances.

    From what I remember, Pele's official goals were 757. Ronaldo has 636 and 204 assists in 895 games, Messi - 598 goals, 246 assists in 745 games. It's on the website about their rivalry and it can be seen when broken down by stats in different...

  6. diplomat replied to the thread Jose Mourinho | 2017/18 Assessments.

    I actually agree with your post. My memory is probably off so going for the EL rather than playing properly in the league might not have been as much due to being too far away from a top 4 spot. However, your point about league position not being...

    Stop re-writing history. We went all in the EL because we were so shite in the EPL and had no real chance to finish in the top 4. LVG won us the FA cup and was sacked the same night, so trophies obviously don't mean everything. And if the EL...

  8. diplomat replied to the thread Jose Mourinho | 2017/18 Assessments.

    They'll still use the fact we finished 6th last season, so anything apart from 5th will be "progress" in their eyes. Even though it's Jose's fault we finished 6th, considering the season before that LVG had us 5th and on the same points as the...

    Early excuses on the way. We also have the injuries excuse, the atmosphere at OT being shit excuse. I wonder what else will be thought of before and after the game if we lose or draw.

    You are actually correct. Jose could do that, especially in a 3-5-2, with Sanchez and Lukaku up top.

    Unless we play Carrick instead of him, Pogba will be a starter because we have no other midfielders.

    "Progress". Or it's probably due to the fact we have spent hundreds of millions of pounds every season on transfers and wages, whilst still doing feck all in the grand scheme and when compared to the top teams in Europe.

    I was told stats are manipulated by some other posters, they need to be put into context, they don't show the whole picture, even though when using my own eyes and brain to look, understand the type of football we play on the pitch, all I see is...

    We have to play away to City as well, whilst having games against Liverpool, Arsenal and some very tough away matches, where we always struggle to even score these days, let alone win.

  15. diplomat replied to the thread POLL: Negotiation over Martial's contract extension have stalled.

    So everyone on the team is "lazy bollox"? I'd say that is some lazy-bollocks-driven agenda against Martial and in favour of Mourinho.
