    We played them last season on a Saturday evening, under Van Gaal too when we got that 2-1 with about 2 chances on goal

    Might have said this already, but I swear Watford play one new player every single game they play.

    Those shite betting adverts that come on before/in between halfs showing odds of something happening i.e. Rashford to score next, they never ever happen and never will.

    Unless it’s against us, in which case it always happens. For example it might say at halftime “Afonso Alves to score a hat trick 200/1” and then it happens.

    It's not possible to 'hate' Peter Crouch.

    Just want to see Scholes hit a volley.
    Arsenal are perpetually building something new/on the rise but always same league position.

    I also dont get why Arsenal doesnt get the label of Bottlers as Ive seen them lose games so many times that they should essily win.

    Footballers today look much younger than those in the 90s/00s, even at the sane age

    Paul Ince could do it for sure, but clubs seem to keep hiring managers who can't.

    I was thinking this myself as I watched our game against Arsenal. The refs seem to want to blow for the slightest hint of anything. So annoying.

    He scored a headed goal against us at the World Cup, our first and only ever World Cup might I add, by pulling on Brent Sancho’s dreadlocks to jump above him, and no foul was called.

    I absolutely despise the stupid looking lamp post.

    The Inter job is forever available for Mourinho to take, should it not work out for him at other clubs.

    Jose Mourinho was only at Inter Milan for one season, won the treble and left.

    Manuel Neuer gets humiliated and turned inside out more than any goalkeeper who ever played the game.

    Players with double barrel surnames are always:
    • English
    • Young (I can think of few north of 35)
    • Talented/great potential
    • But almost always never fulfil that promise
    E.g. Shaun Wright-Philips, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Ward-Prowse etc

    Just noticed something. Rashford seems to score whenever United lose these days. Happens a lot actually. :D

    Whenever we win the ball and the counter is on, the ref will move into the exact right spot to block the best pass.

    It's a conspiracy, la.

    When there are cup matches midweek, there are always teams that played each other also the previous weekend for the league or is scheduled to play each other the upcoming weekend.

    Wayne Rooney never scored headers, except during the 2009-10 season, where it seemed that the majority of his goals were headers (assisted by one of Nani, Valencia, or Fletcher.) Any goals scored with his feet that season were provided by Giggs.

    Every black player playing for an English team is racially abused in Eastern Europe.

    Players stopped tucking their shirts in around 2006.

    Sergio Ramos wasn't considered a dirty player until he cut his hair.

    Every time anyone compares two players on here, the next post is always 'They are completely different players.'

    All apart from Frank Lampard, who stubbornly stuck with the tuck until his retirement a decade later.

    I stopped tucking my shirt in around 1974. School PE teacher used to have fits about it, maybe that's why I did it :D.

    Does that make me a trendsetter?

    Whenever the camera pans to SAF during United games he is scowling if we are winning but happy as Larry when we are losing.

    Every time a player gets sent off and it leads to a freekick, the freekick always ends up being a goal

    Or when anyone compares two of anything, for that matter. Without fail someone will always be along to claim “that’s not even remotely the same.”

    There are only 5 out and out No.9 centre forwards left in world football. Once they're gone, they're gone.

    Seemingly about 99% of the time players strive to keep the ball for ages, it goes back to the keeper who just lumps it aimlessly and loses possession anyway.
