  1. Chris Smalling | Roma player

    Minor knee injury. Should be back in the team for the Europa League or next weekend at the latest.
  2. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness or memes please)

    There were a lot less cases in August. April was the peak.
  3. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness or memes please)

    That was in August, when the Covid death rate in England was 7.2 per 100,000 people. The total death rate for all causes was 277 per 100,000, so yes, Covid was not that big a deal in August. In April however the Covid rate was 623 per 100,000, so over double all the other causes put together.
  4. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness or memes please)

    The initial response in Italy was definitely better. Italy went from being worst in Europe to amongst the best, whereas the UK never really got a handle on it. The second wave is yet to be seen. I see there is more negative press in Italy this time around and the natural Italian tendency to...
  5. Donny van de Beek | 2020/21 Performances

    I have always thought we bought him because we know Pogba is off at the end of this season. Nobody should expect him to be starting over Bruno and Pogba, but he must not be training well if he's not getting in ahead of Mata and James. It's fine for now but if he's still not getting games by...
  6. Former City academy player Jeremy Wisten sadly took his own life after being released

    Sad. Could City have done more, or the PFA? There should be more support set up for kids released like that, after dreaming of being a pro their whole lives. So many talk about how hard it is.
  7. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness or memes please)

    They use it to stir up anti Southern resentment but I dont think they ever actually want to split off, if anything its more the other way round. Lots of the North just resent paying for the South.
  8. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness or memes please)

    They're just very different to the rest of the country. If there were ever to be a Catalan style independence movement in Italy, it would be in Naples.
  9. Harry Maguire | 2020/21 Performances

    Forgetting the penalty, he played well, calm and composed and commanding of his area. Got caught flat footed a couple of times but nothing that cost us. Lindelof was still better, but at least hes getting back to form after a horrific start to the season.
  10. "this midfield doesn't do enough offensively"

    Ole set us up not to lose, first and foremost. You cant expect miracles with some of the players we had out there, but I think a big part of our bluntness in attack is our coaching, or lack of it. Watching us pick the ball up in certain positions you look for a particular run and pass. If for...
  11. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness or memes please)

    Lots of Italians dont consider Naples truly part of Italy, including Neopolitans themselves. It's a totally different place. They rarely need much of an excuse to get out on the streets and riot, I wouldn't read too much into it.
  12. Who is the current best player in the world?

    That's what I'm saying. If we were to bring one player into this current Manchester United team for this season only, Haaland would be it.
  13. Who is the current best player in the world?

    I'd always side with a young hungry player in an average team over a 32 year old in a totally dominant team. There's not much between them otherwise, if you wanted to bring one player in right now.
  14. Who is the current best player in the world?

    Haaland or Son would be my picks.
  15. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness or memes please)

    On aircraft the air comes down from the ceiling and is drawn out through vents underneath the windows by your feet. Presumably because of the power of the onboard circulation system, any virus particles that are picked up are carried right past you in the window seat. There has been an awful...
