    Will be very interesting to see the results of a second Scottish referendum. Imagine if they voted out! Brexit carnage plus that will be chaos. I think my early retirement to Spain may need to get moving.

    How will that mean the EU will have more of a say over NI's laws than themselves? That is just incorrect - NI remains under UK law. EU will have a say over customs regulations which NI will need to respect but that's it.

    I couldn't wait to see the back of Trippier and am glad he is gone, I also can't wait to see the back of Aurier. Let's not rewrite history here, Trippier is a very average player who was utterly terrible last season.

    Because he was utterly shite and blamed everybody else in the side for him gifting multiple goals in matches throughout the season which wound everybody up. He simply had to go.

    Have you forgotten just how pathetic Trippier was for us last season? He was an absolute disaster and was rightly booted out of the club. We should have bought a replacement yes but I'm 100% behind the decision to get rid of him, he was utterly...

    Most people on a Utd forum, not most people outside of that. I'd say most football fans would pick Ronaldo as top.

    Brazilian Ronaldo is the best player in my opinion - he was unbelievable. As much as I also loved watching Ronaldinho for his flair and skill - C Ronaldo outshines him in terms of career and just his incredible determination and skill to remain...

    Yikes. I wonder if that would mean we would have to pay RTE and the BBC in a UI if we wanted to watch both (have no interest in watching RTE)? I hate my life.

    You do realise football is a team game right? Rooney was in a team that won all that - HE didn't win any of it himself. You need to change that to 'list of achievements of the teams that Rooney happened to play in' Judging players in that way is...
