  1. The treatment on here of Marcus Rashford

    Still think he has magic, but not consistency. iMO he has dropped off his work rate which is more annoying to me than him losing the ball or not scoring 27 goals a game
  2. Dean Henderson | 2020/21 Performances

    It seems contradictory to me that people are saying he is pegged to his line, yet the criticism is he fought out of that situation to attempt to come and claim 2 crosses.
  3. Alternative MUFC Commentary

    This is absolutely hilarious on twitter and well worth a follow
  4. Brighton and Hove Albion 2020/21 season

    Exactly they have bolstered most other positions in their team. i.e. there is no point buying a top class CF if you are creating poor chances every game. Like you say if they can hold on the rest of the team it is pretty evident where they need to invest. But that is also a big if.
  5. We are 2nd in the league and deserve to be there. Agree?

    I don't think Bruno's goal rate is sustainable and that masks our defensive inabilities. We consistently concede shit goals. Our form since going top has been absolutely shambolic, but other teams have gone through similar periods. I think we are lucky tbh. and it is quite tight on who is best...
  6. Brighton and Hove Albion 2020/21 season

    The stats like xG will transform the game soon. They will never be accurate but they show distinct patterns and variance. Much like golf which we are seeing revolutionised since the advent of strokes gained, and the myths of drive for show putt for dough being completely admonished (but for...
  7. Manchester United vs Sheffield United

    Better to be 3 up at half time and rest them from there IMO. Sometimes you shoot yourself in the foot making too many changes.
  8. Edinson Cavani - 2020/21 Performances

    What a header that would have been so unlucky quality player and attitude
  9. Marcus Rashford MBE | 2020/21 Performances

    Thought he was great today. More please. Hope injury is nothing serious
  10. Scott McTominay | 2020/21 Performances

    I didn’t think Scott did too bad but you can’t play him and have him doing the job he was doing today being deepest midfielder taking ball of a back 4. The center backs are too slow moving the ball which lets opposition close right on Scotty and his touch isn’t good enough to take those balls...
  11. Jürgen Klopp Watch | "Man United had more penalties in two years than me in five and a half years"

    LVg should have been sacked after that game IMo
  12. Donny van de Beek | 2020/21 Performances

    I didn’t think he was great today but more than twice he played first time balls during a counter attack that were brilliant passes. His ability to move the ball quickly makes the team faster without necessarily having speed merchants on the pitch. I think he would be great for city actually...
  13. Marcus Rashford MBE | 2020/21 Performances

    I think he is a player you have to play into form. The problem is Martial and Greenwood have also been pants this season which makes us look toothless at times. I do agree with earlier poster who said he feels like his work rate has dropped off. I wish he would just do that more. This might be...
  14. How far off is this squad from a title challenge?

    Cavani was fuming all game against fulham. We need an option who will deliver crosses to him. He is a monster center forward. All our wide options cut inside, and even our full backs hesitate on early delivery. I don't mind who it is or how that happens but that needs to be something we can use...
  15. Jürgen Klopp Watch | "Man United had more penalties in two years than me in five and a half years"

    Jota is a big miss, he freshened up the attack. Thiago holds on to the ball. I don't think the other midfielders around him are on same wavelength TBH, and that means the balls through him are taking longer than usual. I think this actually hampers Salad and Mane who want a quick ball into...
