  1. Kapardin replied to the thread Pogba is the best midfielder in the world.

    I reckon in-form De Bruyne is as good as Pogba. Pretty much equal really.

  2. Kapardin replied to the thread [Poll] Next permanent United manager.

    I think being pragmatic is often confused with being defensive because the word gets thrown about excessively for managers like Mourinho, Conte and Simeone. They aren't the same. It's possible to be a pragmatic attacking manager who adapts to the...

  3. Kapardin replied to the thread Is Herrera making a bid for Captain?.

    He is good, and I like him, but I really think Pogba should be Captain if he affirms his loyalty to the club and extends his deal further. It may not look like it now, but Pogba has all the qualities to be a great Captain for all his dabbing and...

  4. Kapardin replied to the thread Nemanja Matić | 2018/19 Performances.

    We don't have an adequate replacement. McTominay might do a job but definitely not Pereira. But Matic is a tank. Plays every minute of every game without letting his level drop too much over the course of the season. Considering his fitness, we...

  5. Kapardin replied to the thread Chelsea 2018/19 - Higuain to save the campaign from going down the drain?.

    I reckon Chelsea will have to put up with Sarri till the cup final atleast. Not fair to sack him without giving him a chance to win a cup final that he led the team to. Another 6-0 wouldn't be a surprise though if he fields the same robotic XI...

  6. Kapardin replied to the thread Ander Herrera | 2018/19 Performances.

    Wanted him sold in 2015-2017 period and I can admit I was wrong. He had the misfortune of playing under 2 terrible managers. Even now, it is sad that he lost almost 3 years of his career when he could have been playing at this level for us. But...

  7. Kapardin replied to the thread Ole Gunnar Solskjaer | W11 D1 L1.

    Almost all the players have improved under Ole. Only Sanchez has stayed the same, while Lukaku has regressed. This style of play is very attractive and I would be interested to see what he can do with proper FBs and a RW. Though my heart bleeds...

    Not like this, with Mata in the middle. Lukaku and Rashford wide stretching their defenders, it was an impressive tactical adjustment Ole debuted against Chelsea to paper over our injuries.

  9. Kapardin replied to the thread Manchester United vs Liverpool.

    Usually it would be. But Sarri has been terrible, and even Mourinho at his lowest ebb almost snatched a win this season at the Bridge. I told Chelsea fans back then that alarm bells should have rung since we were traditionally so bad at their...

    We didn't play this system against Spurs though.

  11. Kapardin replied to the thread Manchester United vs Liverpool.

    Again, read my post properly. A team at the top of the league is a real test, or a Top 6 team that is struggling is anything more than a test? I wonder what is even wrong with you, simply spamming for the sake of argument. Yep, your point that...

  12. Kapardin replied to the thread Manchester United vs Liverpool.

    So nothing of substance other than the ridiculous assumption that you had that anyone anti-Sarri was pro-Jose, because the argument made was that Sarri had no experience at big clubs and would find the pressure at Chelsea a different beast. You...

  13. Kapardin replied to the thread Manchester United vs Liverpool.

    1- Never was. Even in his first season, I praised him for the cup wins and defended the fact that his signings weren't shit, but I wasn't worshipping him or thinking him flawless at any time like some. Even criticised him for the Sevilla presser...

  14. Kapardin replied to the thread Manchester United vs Liverpool.

    Again, what part of its a test for the system and not Ole don't you get? Of course the tactics worked against Chelsea, who are far inferior to Liverpool in many areas at the moment. Or you think tactics should work against all teams all the time...

  15. Kapardin replied to the thread Manchester United vs Liverpool.

    If you read my post properly, I said it's a test for the system and not for Ole's credentials as manager. The system worked against your favorite hipster manager at the Bridge, now Liverpool is just a bit tougher. Klopp won't hesitate to go long...
