  1. Fred is one of the most underrated players in England

    Park Ji Sung 2. He's awesome. He's often our most important player in big games. Tenacious and streetwise in tight spaces. We'd be lost without him to be honest in big games.
  2. Ole Gunnar Solskjær | 2020/21 Discussion

    There was mass suicide when we didn't sign a central defender before the window closed. One worldie performance from Tuanzebe proved Ole was right and that such is his phenomenal talent, that we need to give him another chance to prove his fitness. The year before there was mass suicide that we...
  3. Marco Rose | Gladbach manager

    Son of Lillian Thuram with both goals against Real so far. Always dreamed Lillian would join Utd under Fergie back in the day but wasn't to be despite interest. What a player
  4. The [non] use of Van de Beek - Ole's player?

    The overdramatic reaction from the media to Van de Beek not playing is the classic anti-Utd agenda with sections of the press. Nobody is complaining about Bale sitting on the bench at Tottenham, or Minamino mostly on the bench at Liverpool. Van de Beek will play a huge part soon. Ole will lose...
  5. Former City academy player Jeremy Wisten sadly took his own life after being released

    It's very sad. There's still huge potential possibilities for kids who get released. Imagine you could still go to the MLS or Portugal or Australia or India or Thailand and join a club. Maybe not make great money but live like a king by the beach. It's so tragic that he couldn't see the...
  6. The [non] use of Van de Beek - Ole's player?

    Takes time to adapt. Lindelof, Shaw, Fred all took time. Not to mention we're heavily stocked in Central midfield. His chance will come. Ole knows his job is on the line. He needs Fred and McT now to make sure we don't concede and lose games we should be winning.
  7. Edinson Cavani - 2020/21 Performances

    He got into good positions which is promising. Looked up for it. All he needs now is match sharpness. I'd imagine he will be starting midweek against Leipzig along with Van De Beek.
  8. Zidane watch

    Everyone thought Madrid were in crisis due to the midweek Champions League cock-up, but little did they know that this was Zidane's plan all along to rest most of his first XI in that game, not too bothered if they lose it, so that everyone is fresh for the El Clasico today. Zidane knows a...
  9. Gareth Bale | Tottenham Hotspur (loan) player

    I think he'll be massive for them once he gets going.
  10. Ozil

    This is probably the most bizarre post I've read on here in a long time. So let's sign an overpaid underperforming spoiled diva who lost his hunger to perform at the top as soon as the ink was dry on his new Arsenal mega-contract, a player who's stinker attitude would destroy the Man Utd...
  11. Official unofficial Republic Of Ireland thread

    So it's okay for you to support an English team, but it's not okay for Raheem Sterling or John Barnes to play for England? Or Patrick Viera to play for France? Or Mahrez to play for Algeria?
  12. Zidane watch

    Real are missing a few big names indeed - Carvajal, Sergio Ramos, Hazard....then Kroos and Benzema started on the bench perhaps to be rested. The problem at Madrid is that the squad players don't seem to be doing the business yet - Odegaard, Vinicius Junior, Jovic, Mendy, Militao etc
  13. Paul Pogba | 2020/21 Performances

    He looked like he was in his old Juventus kit with the black and white stripes of the new away jersey. I thought he was brilliant. Looked up for it. He clearly can not play in our central midfield in a massive game against a big team if Bruno is playing also, but he's good enough to be in the...
  14. Post match vs Paris St Germain

    McFredinay is the first 2 names on the team sheet, in an away game of this magnitude going forward. If Tuanzebe can stay fit then he plays every game, simple as
