  1. 2020 Summer Transfer Window - 5 Days To Go!

    All seems a bit shambolic , 3 weeks into the season and DVB only business done and that was because of the Van Der Sarr link. By most accounts we have not even put an official bid in for anyone else yet and are having huge problems shifting players on. All points to a panicky last few days...
  2. Ismaila Sarr

    I would not worry , we are only at the enquiry stage , between the preparing and intensely preparing stage we are about 6 months away from the making an actual bid stage.
  3. Premier League Gameweek 3

    They are comfortable so far ahead of every one else they could have the league wrapped up in record time this season , no other team is near them.
  4. Paul Pogba | 2020/21 Performances

    If his form continues like this Ole is going to have a real tough decision on his hands very soon , no player should be on automatic starter on the team by virtue of their name alone and right now Pogba is not playing nearly well enough to get a start even in this misfiring team.
  5. Donny van de Beek | 2020/21 Performances

    Only a few minutes today which is not time to impress(he did win the corner that led to the penalty) , really hope he starts to get more time as I think he could add a lot to what we have.
  6. Bruno Fernandes | 2020/21 Performances

    Agree with that , even on his poorer days he is easily our most creative player , yes he gives the ball away at times but he rarely has a game where he does not set up something for those ahead of him , he also gave two great balls in to martial today which on other days could have led to goals.
  7. Lionel Messi

    This is all ending rather bitterly for Barcelona and Messi , he is effectively on a work to rule basis to see out his contract. I think Barcelona are been shortsighted here , they should take the money off City and let him go. it is just going to get more and more bitter the longer he is...
  8. Post match vs Brighton & Hove Albion

    I think all pen decision were got right in the end, Bruno a little unlucky but was just about a penalty , the disallowed Connolly one was the correct call too and the last one was the most obvious clear cut penalty , don't know why the Brighton players were going after the ref after the game ...
  9. Post match vs Brighton & Hove Albion

    2nd best team all day and poxed lucky to win it but 3pts are 3pts no matter how you earn them. That is the important thing But we really need to start improving very quickly or this season will get away form us in the first month. We really are shambolic at times and it is not all down to fitness.
  10. Brighton & Hove Albion vs Manchester United

    Correct decision made , Connolly clearly went across him and pulled Pogba's thigh towards himself initiating the contact.
  11. Brighton & Hove Albion vs Manchester United

    They have been the better team and deserve the lead.
  12. Brighton & Hove Albion vs Manchester United

    So far it has been much like last week , on the back foot.
  13. Is Jadon Sancho really worth the 100 plus million fee?

    Exactly , he has potential; to be an elite player in a big league , but so do a lot of players. Not all of them fulfill that potential ,even the promising ones. Right now he would probably improve us but not by nearly as much as some people on here think he would. Talk of him having better...
  14. If the fans can see the club has no ambition, so can the players

    Looking at the money we have spent over the years since Fergie left it is hard to argue the club lacks ambition , but we have just been extremely incompetent in how we have spent it on average players with huge contracts and no real long term plan or vision. The money we have is not infinite...
  15. Should we consider selling Pogba?

    I think if anyone offered anything near that again we would snap their hand off to take it. He must have shown he was fit enough to start at the weekend , but his attitude on the pitch was awful as it has been for a lot of the time he has been here over the last 4 years. He really could not be...
