  1. Casey Stoney has resigned

    This is another shameful chapter in the Glazer's occupation of the club. I don't use the word "owner" as they have only exploited the club. Watch as other clubs swoop in and there is an exodus of players. Casey was an amazing manager and will be sorely missed by the team, the fans and the parts...
  2. Cavani signs new contract

    This is great news, that could only be topped by hearing that we have sold Martial for an inflated fee.
  3. Aston Villa vs Manchester United

    Statistically speaking, the most potent creative force that has lead to the most goals against us has been Fred giving a hospital pass just outside our penalty area. Any opposition manager must surely be able to spot this. We desperately need a competent defensive midfielder.
  4. Film Favorite movie opening scene

    I couldn't watch this film during the first lockdown...the empty classrooms and feeling of a society limping towards extinction....felt way too close to home and added another level to this amazing film.
  5. Film Favorite movie opening scene

    Gravity...the start of a white-knuckle ride begins slowly and quietly
  6. WSL 20/21 | United v Spurs - 12:30 at Sun 24 April

    Really amateur refereeing performance so far. Gives Zelim a yellow for "timewasting" at a free kick when their player was 5 yards away. Blows whistle as we are breaking to add a 4th and allowing spurs players to just push us over. Good job we got an early goal, otherwise Spurs would just be...
  7. How should the breakaway clubs be dealt with now?

    I think a lifetime ban on all football activities for those executives / owners that initiated this. Yes they can easily get around that by employing a proxy or another family member, but it may prompt a couple to sell their club at a low point rather than when they had coined it in. I know...
  8. European Super League | 18th April 2021 - 20th April 2021 RIP

    This whole situation has Woodward and Joel Glazer's incompetence baked in to the very core. It's one thing to be unhappy with UEFA, try and argue your case and look at alternative options. No-one would object to that. However we have Woodward publicly saying one thing and privately engaging in...
  9. European Super League | 18th April 2021 - 20th April 2021 RIP

    That's an interesting one...this clusterfeck will be an easy excuse for some companies to pull out of sponsorship deals they signed pre covid, claiming the clubs reneged on the deal by acting in bad faith. This will cost the clubs millions.

  11. European Super League | 18th April 2021 - 20th April 2021 RIP

    I suspect that at least one of the 12 clubs was fast approaching a financial meltdown. I predict at least one of the 12 will be put up for sale at a bargain price and maybe another could actually go to the wall financially. Glad odious Woody has gone. Hopefully at least we can get that market...
  12. European Super League | 18th April 2021 - 20th April 2021 RIP

    This...watch FIFA slowly and gradually plunge a knife into UEFAs back. What we are watching is a hostile takeover of UEFA by the real financial backers of this move (Amazon perchance?). Given the only people with any real power over the fundamental players licences are FIFA, I can't believe...
  13. European Super League | 18th April 2021 - 20th April 2021 RIP

    Well Ceferin has made it clear, this is do or die as far as UEFA are concerned. What will be interesting will be what FIFA actually do, rather than what they say. Infantino is President of Fifa and also an IOC member too. He has been accused of accepting gifts from Russia and Qatar ahead of...
  14. Possibility of United v Arse final - STILL POSSIBLE ATM

    If we aren't booted out of the competition (legal arguments will stop UEFA doing this I'm sure) then expect the referees to just basically fix the game so Roma and villareal go through. 2 or 3 sendings off and some VAR decisions will make sure United and Arsenal don't progress and no other fans...
  15. Jose Mourinho Sack Watch | Sacked per 19-04

    So will the translator have to wait for Ronaldo to retire before he gets the Portugal National Manager job? I think he is done as a Manager anywhere apart from Italy or PSG. I'm amazed he never went up for the PSG job, but maybe he realised that you don't feck about with those owners without...
