  1. Fortitude replied to the thread What was your favourite United shirt sponsor?.

  2. Fortitude replied to the thread Paul Pogba...how good?.

    How do you quantify how a forward is more talented than a midfielder? If we take each individual skill as its own metric, what, or how, does Dembele have 'more' of it than Pogba? Is it down to a single quality, or two, being off the charts, that...

    The question is: how many more of them are out there, and, can we got one (or two)?

  4. Fortitude replied to the thread Mega wage duds - how many of them are out there?.

    I think China's a bit different - they've chosen money purely over playing competitive football at the level they should be. I think Tevez was on £600k a week when he was there, btw. I don't think any of those players are in the bracket of wages...

    Mega wage duds - how many of them are out there?

    Just reading teletext (remember that!?) and there's a story about Arsenal trying to offload £350,000 a week Mesut Oezil. Even with the media's creative licence, he must surely be on over £300k for them to stretch it that far in the story. It...

  7. Fortitude replied to the thread All-Time Thread: pick a league and then pick any specific nation of foreign imports into it..

    I started the Brazilian one because of a quick flash thought of Emerson and Juninho. then as I went through the team, it kind of dawned on me that better players are taking their spots and they have no place in the team. Given Firminho is on...

  10. Fortitude replied to the thread Spurs 2018/19.

    False #9 Delli with hard attacks down the flanks Lamela and Moura (who's Moura's cover?) Eriksen, Winks and Dier in midfield. Putting a static striker into that Spurs team will do more harm than good and prevent them form pressing and doing...

  11. Fortitude replied to the thread What would our peak CL-winning 2007/'08 squad cost in current market terms?.

    Anderson indeed, extremely highly touted youngsters like him are north of £80m now. His value obviously plummeted in subsequent seasons, but at that time his worth would have been right up there and only top clubs would be able to move for him....
