Actually, they could I reckon. Imagine Messi playing with Ronaldo and Pogba in midfield...
For all the derision of his intellect, I think he's quite a smart and capable guy. Would make a good manager in another decade's time.
Whatever happened to the Punjabi Reds? They were a fixture for a long time.
We’ll probably win the league with Messi Ronaldo Bale and Ramos, most matches would be won in the tunnel.
True we have fundamental issues with our team no spine, no philosophy, no clear implementation of a system. Even the best players need an environment to thrive in on the field.
Do we think Messi could finally free up Pogba?
I agree, but Pochettino, elite coaching staff, DoF and/or a transfer committee would. We don’t know how to play football at United. That is embarrassing and no world class players can fix that, but a top class manager could. When you looked at how poorly we performed this season when Ole got the contract it should be apparent that we don’t have a gameplan.
On a side note, Rooney might have a career as a manager or a BT/Sky pundit after his career is over. He also rightly claimed that we should have moved heaven and earth to land Pochettino.
Of course they fecking would.
900 goals in that team.
your obsession is admirable
I think if we put those 4 players in the team we'd win the league - so while we know the point he's trying to make, he's utterly wrong.
The way he sneaked that in.
The club is broken. Replace our entire quad with City's, we wont still win shit. There is something rotten here.
They saw the rot before we all did.
I know we're rubbish but Ronaldo and Messi are two of the best players ever, I think we'd have a pretty clean domestic sweep with those two in the team.
They’d solve a fair few of our problems tbf. Not all of them, obviously
I reckon we could make a title challenge at least with Messi and Ronaldo upfront and Ramos in defense. Pogba to feed them
They'd just been fighting over who should take every penalty, freekick, and who scored most and sexiest goals
Surely, we also need:
- young to suddenly become world class and be able to cross
- Shaw to suddenly become world class and be able to attack in general
- Matic to suddenly become fast
- a RM to suddenly appear in the lineup
We can all see where this is going. Not trying to start an argument with you, but Wayne is almost right. We need 2-3 good/very good players and 2-3 good with potential.
Blowing our budget on 2 stars would not help at all. Just thinking we could line up with Dalot/Young at RB next season makes vomit in my mouth.
He has a very good football brain. He’s understood loads of different positions and roles over the course of his career and has played all of them to a high level. He doesn’t come across as the smartest guy outside of football related matters, but when it comes to football he has a very very good brain.
Call me crazy but in our current state, doubt we would win a league with all of them. I cant even imagine what kind of circus that would be.
Rashford over Bale? Smalling over Ramos?
Wouldn’t be a half bad option at all, Ish. I mean we could even throw one on for Lingard for the last ten when we’re chasing a game.
They'd solve a lot going forward and create even more defensively
So you think Ramos alone would have a bigger impact than Messi, Ronaldo and Bale combined?
What? Do you disagree he has a great football brain? Surely not
Maybe I phrased it badly. I meant we'd have more issues defending than we do currently with Bale, Ronaldo, Messi and Ramos in the team.
And separately we'd have no problems going forward scoring lots of goals. So we'd be a better team overall due to the offensive firepower
I think a lot of people are missing the point. Yes they’d be brilliant for a couple of years but what Rooney is saying is that those sort of signings are a short term fix. Better investing in players who aren’t the finished article but will be in the future and could give us 5-10 years, rather than two good seasons.
I’ve no idea? He’s said some common sense stuff that 90% of the Caf would agree with. Not sure that makes him a genius.
Even in Neville’s ”silent domination” speech he pretty much called him stupid if you read between the lines:
That he needed to be told very basic stuff by LVG in his 30’s.
They'd be the next Alexis/Schweinsteiger/Falcoa for us anyway. It's our luck
Fergie said the same in his book. He doesn't take instructions well, and reverts to what he knows
Because they are not midfielders
Rooney is an idiot if he doesn’t think we’d p*ss the league with those four in it.
He’s not the brightest and this sort of nonsense reaffirms it.
That's not really how Neville meant it That's taking reading between the lines to a ridiculous level
That’s true. It maybe hard to win CL, but the League with those attacking GOATS? We were 2nd with Lukaku, Rashford, Martial, and Lingard in attack.
Not in a malicious way, but in a ”look how well the adorable ball chaser is behaving under LVG, that’s a good boy, I’m so proud of him for following instructions for once in his life” kind of way.
It sounds as though he’s talking about a 12 year old and not a 30 year old.
It’s worth trying for a season though...
