    Croatia were poor, and England were.....okay verging on good, but let's not underestimate how good a win this was. We didn't allow them to control the midfield, as seemed likely beforehand. We look a more mature team now and we could go far in...

    Yeah our options are fantastic, but mean nothing if we don't find a balance and that's why I'd start Marcus. It has to be Grealish vs Mount for the 10 role, as hard as it is to justify not playing someone of Grealish's quality, because I think...

    Two weeks ago I'd have said Rashford shouldn't start. His form didn't warrant it amidst the competition for that place. Having seen the friendlies leading in though I'd definitely start him. He brings pace, a goal threat and a ready made...
  • Agree with people that are bringing up his numbers in the season before last. There is obvious quality there and he's a 20+ goal striker. Having said that, with our squad make-up looking how it is today he has to be in that camp of players that...
  • Not sure what people expect of Levy. They've long been a mid to top 6, 'the odd cup run' type of team. They still are, but with a fantastic new stadium and excellent training facilities which will keep them relevant and will pay dividends in the...

    Really like this guy. Old school defending with a little bit of silk thrown in. Love to see him at United if the price is right
  • Bilbo replied to the thread Grealish To City?.
    Not only will Villa refuse to sell him, I don't think he wants to leave. He'd be close to a free agent by now but instead he chose to sign a long term contract in COVID times, drastically limiting his options. He chose to do that because he's...
  • All of these points are a result of overused clichés that, while inevitable in a never ending argument, don't really mean anything. Ole getting backed is just good news all round. For him, for the club, for the fans & for the team. We should all...
  • To anybody that took part in the peaceful parts of those protests - well done. You've achieved something real here and that's something to be proud of. My hat is off to all of you. To those still throwing scorn on this - hold your horses. This...

  • This thread might be a new low for this place
  • Me too. Signals the peak of this era for the team

    I think you're cherry picking a little bit here. I could easily write a similar post detailing Peps repeated failings in the Champions League, and he's a genius. I'm not discounting what you're saying here though, and as I've said I do think Ole...

    I agree it's an overused word, and on here is probably the only time I ever use it. A prediction or an opinion is one thing. Saying its 'blatantly obvious' that a manager who has lifted this team to 2nd alongside multiple deep cup runs will...

    No i don't think its the same thing. There are way more variables involved when it comes to being & judging a manager.
