    Whenever Andre Mariner is pictured on TV he's shaking his head saying 'No!' to a player moaning for a penalty.

    Why do i have the weird feelings that the league cup is actually stronger then the FA cup, in recent times. Better teams reach the semi's in league cup, rather then the other.

    Which makes us beating Celta Vigo so much sweeter, especially with that Guidetti being haunted by his last kick of the game. :lol:

    On occasions we beat City away, it's always by score of 3-2.

    There was no CL final in 2006, it was just back-to-back Liverpool vs Milan finals.

    This is not a weird feeling, this is true.

    Mourinho didn’t win the Premier League in his second stint at Chelsea.

    He came back, said something about a horse, then went mental and sacked a doctor for no reason.

    I never see players clean through, 1 on 1 with the keeper any more. Not happened since Henry.

    Morata is a Morientes regen.

    Left backs are better going forward but right backs are better defensively. (Applies more to the late 90s early 00s)

    A Left back will score more rockets and are more likely to be penalty takers than a right back

    Traditional Right wingers don’t exist anymore. They’re either number 10’s or inverted wingers.

    They quite literally aren't. Have you read the OP or any other post in this thread?

    Ever since SAF left, the moment fans start getting excited over something, if it's justified or not, we hit a brick wall, lose the next game and consequently spiral into a bit of a losing run. Which is why the following weekend might be a bit shit.

    Also Lukaku plays better with short sleeves.

    Harsh on Morientes. He was actually a really good striker.

    It is written in the lawbooks of the country that tv pundits have to ask players and managers if they thought they deserved the win after they've pulled off a shock victory. The only exception to this is if the players and managers just come out and say it anyway, which they do half the time without being prompted.

    It really has been a period of false dawn after false dawn, signings can be applied to this too but I strongly believe it’s been our managers that have been infuriatingly incompetent and now we have someone who finally gets it. We’ll still have disappointing results as every single team does no matter how good they are, but I feel so much better about things.

    Along similar lines, 14-15 as a season just sort of feels like it didn't happen. Or one that later became mostly insignificant. It was an incredibly plain year thinking back. Chelsea basically waltzed to the title excepting for a brief blip, City ambled to 2nd place, we mounted the beginnings of a recovery under LVG but later regressed, Pochettino was starting to build a strong Spurs side but hadn't done anything of note yet, and Arsenal just sort of finished 3rd or 4th or something. With Leicester then shocking everyone the following season it didn't feel like any of the big sides (apart from maybe Spurs) progressed from one season to another in a way that seemed at all logical or what you'd expect.

    I'm wondering if it's perhaps because there are less left-footed players out there, and so typically you'll see more wingers with a left foot converted into left-backs than the other way round. Think of someone like Bale who's made a career as an attacker but started out as a left-back!

    Pre-2010 (that's a ballpark guess), fullbacks were generally failed CBs or failed Wingers, so yeah makes sense.

    2019 is pretty strong
    2017/2018 Equally
    2016/2017 FAcup by far, also best semis ever
    2015/2016 league cup
    2014/2015 league cup only slight
    2013/2014 league cup
    2012/2013 FA cup
    2011/2012 FA cup

    so it's pretty much a tie for me

    Every time the opposition team scores a goal in front of the Stretford end they always celebrate in the corner by the tunnel rather than by the North stand.

    Xavi made his CL debut against us in the thrilling 3-3 draw at Old Trafford in the treble season.
    LVG was the opposing manager.
