    Solskjaer giving me another reason to hate him. I made Rashford captain for fantasy football and he’s on the bench!

    Fulham trying their hardest to injure United players before meeting PSG. Bunch of cnuts.

    Fulham have to be a strong shout for one of the worst Premier League defences in its history. Beautiful play from Martial though. It's scary to watch this United team now and realise how much Mourinho was holding them back, both mentally and tactically. It's a shame he got sacked.

    Are you that far behind that you need him as a differential? Was kinda obvious we would rest with PSG coming up.

    I don't even think it's a shout, I certainly don't remember a worse defence than this. They can actually play some decent stuff going forward but the second that defence is under pressure it collapses like a pack of cards.

    Think we can add Fulham to the doomed list, them and Huddersfield are dead certs. Just terrible, terrible sides.

    First ever promoted side to spend £100m+ as well. Even players like Seri who were highly rated and linked with City and Barcelona look out of their depth.

    Yeah, Fulham are a poor side. I don't know if Ranieri was the best decision for them at this point, he seems to be better at coming into a side that is already fairly steady and then taking them up a notch. Getting someone who could have tightened them at the back would have been the better option. Either way their wage bill must be pretty dangerous for them going into the Championship.

    Also, Chambers is a shithouse. One of those players on the pitch that gives it but would be cowering behind his mates at the club wearing a denim jacket and a Gucci fanny pack.

    They just went with the scattergun transfer approach imo. I remember thinking at the time that they were just chucking money at any half decent player who would come their way, players from all different leagues all expected to adapt to a PL relegation fight immediately, with limited money spent on a defence which clearly needed work.

    Players like Seri I don't think are actually bad, it's just thrust in to this situation they're completely dysfunctional and unable to do much. Fulham look to me like a team who were in their element in the championship were they were able to dominate teams, but thrust in to the PL they simply can't cope, whereas a side like Cardiff who undoubtedly have less quality are far more at home playing on the defensive as an underdog.

    Lukaku has gone full Torres this season. A striker capable of pace and superb finishing at times to a striker that looks absolutely cack. Completely bereft of all confidence :(

    He's turned into a bodybuilder now. Serious, he has a weight problem, his agility has gone to shite because of it.

    :lol: That was such a dumb challenge, Lukaku with a poor decision saved by an even poorer one by the terrible Fulham defence.

    Le Merchand is the worst CB in PL history.

    Go on ... tell me someone who was worse, I can't believe it's possible.

    All criticism of Fulham aside though, Ole has done a marvellous job at United, seriously impressive stuff.

    You can see the belief and happiness flowing through the key talents in the side, the ones who were consistently identified as problems under Mourinho. Remains to be seen if they'll resurface as issues later down the line, but if Ole can manage CL football (and I honestly view them as favourites for 4th) it would be mental not to appoint him, and I'm not just saying that because I want us to keep Poch!

    Foyth has had a couple of seriously dodgy games but he has youth as an excuse and is very good on the ball/has had a couple of very good games.

    Then again, stick Foyth in a team like Fulham and I imagine it wouldn't be pretty at all.

    Mourinho looks worse with each passing week.

    Solskjaer is proving how good this United side can be.

    It was his own fault. He had a good thing going last season and got more passive with each game in the 2nd half of the season. Believe it or not, our 2nd best start to a season in premiere league history was last season. We had the squad to finish in the high 80s last season.

    Milner at RB again, TAA only fit enough for the bench. Shaqiri injured.

    That Sevilla game seemed like the moment a fair few fans turned on him.

    Didn’t Mkhitaryan have a really good start last season?

    I can tell you the exact moment Mourinho had a meltdown over a player. Mkhitaryan was after the Chelsea loss, Pogba after the Spurs loss, Martial after the Sanchez signing. All 3 were playing at a good level before that point. That's the problem with him, players are on edge because 1 bad game can set him off, he can't handle certain personalities.

    Pool fans were convinced that every trophy we won under SAF was a fluke and involved corruption. There's a reason the vast majority of fans from big clubs don't want them to win anything.

    I've already predicted in Aug you'll be finishing fifth this season. And I gave my reasons. I've been bumping that thread every month blowing my own trumpet. You might want to visit it next time I give it a bump. :)

    Fourth and FA cup. :lol:

    Just saw that add with Rodri Giggs, they changed back page of newspaper to Ole ole ole ole. It was something different, I know, but don't remember what.
