    The Hawthorns is the highest ( above sea level ) football ground in the UK.

    Port Vale's Vale Park is second and Oldham's Boundary Park the third highest.

    Ashley Young has played 241 times for United but only has 18 goals to his name. I know he plays RB now; but he has played a lot at RW/LW and that seems surprisingly low.

    Mourinho has better PPG ratio with us than Klopp has with Liverpool.

    Klopp - 204 matches: 115 W - 52D - 37L = 1,95 PPG
    Mourinho - 114 matches: 84W - 31D - 29L = 1,97 PPG

    Sorry, Mourinho has 144 matches. Sadly I can't edit.

    Hahahaha. Something about putting these underperformers in such epic poses with their names in big capital letters really got to me. Can't stop laughing.

    At least Rashford is really a young player who will come good.

    Vicente Guaita (palace keeper) kept more clean sheets in his 20 games (8) then DDG who played all 38. Even Cardiff City kept more clean sheets and they got relegated

    I've known for ages now but I was surprised when I found out Denis Irwin played for Leeds.Thought he just sort of appeared at Oldham before we bought him for a long while, even after he retired.

    I was only young when he'd have been there and they were division 2 so off my radar.

    Marcos Rojo has been at United as long as Teddy Sheringham, Eric Cantona, Andrei Kanchelskis, and Ruud Van Nistelrooy

    Kompany belongs in this sort of crowd, an absolute monster of a defender in his prime. Great leader.

    Ligue 1 is set to be named ‘Ligue 1 Uber Eats’ from 2020.

    As part of the deal, an Uber Eats driver will deliver the match ball each game.

    There are over 540 000 results when one searches "Wesley Sneijder" "Manchester United".

    That is more than Teddy Sheringham (367 000) and Juan Sebastian Veron (96 000) combined.

    As a side note, "Alexis Sanchez" "Manchester United" gives us 7.4 million
    "Alex Ferguson" "Manchester United" gives us... 7.9 million. :confused:
    "Bebe" "Manchester United" gives us 6 million.

    Wesley Sneijder's contract is running out and he is available.

    That's ridiculous. That means Rodrygo's dad is younger than Iniesta, Tevez, Torres and Robben.

    One that always amazes me is that Ryan Giggs had his United testimonial in 2001 - before going on to play for the club for another 13 years! He wasn’t even half way through :lol:

    Spurs, Chelsea, Arsenal and United are all facing some sort of crisis, and yet somehow the EPL is arguably as strong as it's been for the last decade.

    Yeah, haha - he was only 17 when he had Rodrigo. Retired from Série C in 2016 at 31.

    Rojo has been a Manchester United player for longer than Eric Cantona.
