  1. Jude Bellingham

    Get this done. Despite our current state, we’re actually set up brilliantly for a couple of years down the road with our current crop of 16-24 year old players, IF we make the proper complimentary first team signings. This lad could be a huge part of that. Send him back to Birmingham for 6-18...
  2. Boubakary Soumaré

    Ndidi has a specific role and does the dirty work of two people which would allow for two more creative players in midfield. If we had Ndidi we could play two creative #8s in front of him rather than playing the double pivot. He would be a compliment to Soumare, not an alternative. Plus he's...
  3. Boubakary Soumaré

    Seems to me like a different player to Ndidi and Partey, and that we should be in for Ndidi in the summer regardless of what happens with Soumare. Doubt we will, though.
  4. Something special is building at Old Trafford

    Agree that the young talent has the makings of an exceptional core. Can add Mejbri to the list of talented youngsters that should make a first team breakthrough in the next year or two. It feels to me like the squad is one Jadon Sancho and 2-3 (depending on Pogba) midfielders away from being...
  5. What do we still need? Aka The never ending story

    We should be after Ndidi. If I wasn't convinced before, I was after reading this: https://www.espn.com/soccer/leicester-city/story/4029200/why-leicesters-wilfred-ndidinot-chelseas-ngolo-kanteis-the-best-ball-winner-around He would be the perfect player to free up Pogba to pair with a creative...
  6. Get rid of VAR NOW! We want our game back! (...or not, some are happy)

    Norwich got robbed. If the reason is because he came from an offside position, they’ve fecked up the rules. If they’re saying he was offside when the ball was played, they’re wrong.
  7. Get rid of VAR NOW! We want our game back! (...or not, some are happy)

    Been saying this all season. Glad I’m not the only one that thinks this
  8. Transfer Tweets - 2019/20 | Check the OP for blacklisted sources before posting

    At least Ole knows exactly what the squad needs. A striker and a RW may be too much long term with 6 players for 3 positions, but maybe we can keep them all happy. Haaland, Sancho, a proper DM and a creative all-round midfielder/#8 type would do this squad wonders, give us the flexibility to...
  9. What do we still need? Aka The never ending story

    My opinion is that Sancho is the perfect signing for his versatility. Would leave us with James and Sancho who can play on either wing, Rashford and martial who can play on the left or through the middle, and Greenwood who can play on the right or centrally. 5 players who can all play two...
  10. Scott McTominay | 2019/20 Performances

    This. Having completely torn my acl and lcl and partially torn my mcl and pcl (all in one fun injury, mind), I can assure you there’s a world of difference on how long you heal depending on which ligament you hurt and how bad the sprain is. MCLs and LCLs are on the inside and outside of the...
  11. Data: What it takes to succeed in the league now vs a decade ago

    I was surprised the average points of the champions wasn’t much higher for the last 10 years compared to the prior 10. Probably because the last three seasons the champion has racked up so much and I’ve forgotten that this wasn’t always the case this decade. Good post.
  12. All ticket/travel information thread - 2019/20 edition - Touting will not be tolerated on the site

    Thank you very much for the input on both counts! Makes me rest a bit easier - those tickets weren't cheap and now my gf wants to go with me and my pops too... We'll have a car, so will be driving to the airport. Should have mentioned that. Still feasible as long as kick off doesn't get moved, I...
  13. All ticket/travel information thread - 2019/20 edition - Touting will not be tolerated on the site

    I've purchased match day VIP tickets for Southampton on April 25. A couple of questions: 1) how likely is it that the game will get moved for fixture congestion? Is there anyway to predict this at all? I'm coming all the way from Texas and have to be in Ireland for a wedding the next day, so...
