  1. Squad depth for next season, then

    I think overall we have a good squad, depth wise we could do with some improvements. It's more about the balance for me, as we are heavily stacked in some areas and short in others in terms of quality. Take central midfield - on paper we have good numbers and good players, the reality is it's...
  2. Kieran Trippier

    No thats not my argument. My argument is Trippier doesnt compete for the starting spot at RB for us. He'd be a cup player and backup for injury. He'd have the same place in the squad as Williams in that regard, but he's clearly a better player. Tripper doesnt compete with AWB for me
  3. Kieran Trippier

    I said, credit where its due he picked up form in La Liga. Go and watch some spurs games in Trippiers last season - he was very poor. Put it into context - Trippier wouldn't start ahead of AWB. He wouldn't even rotate with him. AWB is miles better and has more potential. Telles currently...
  4. Kieran Trippier

    Agree with this - I can't see the appeal of trippier coming here. For me, AWB is firmly our No1 RB and Trippier wouldn't come close to even competing for the no1 RB spot here - he'd firmly be backup if injured or limited to cup games. He'd be more Williams than Telles in my opinion. People...
  5. Who should leave this summer?

    Agree, I think realistically we still have way too much business to do in one window. We have at least 10 players who need to leave permanently, some more on loan. We need a starting player for CB/DM/CF as a priority and possibly 1/2 more in to enhance the quality around the squad. We have so...
  6. Who should leave this summer?

    We could probably do with two central midfield players anyway Pogba cant play there, Matic is past it, Garner isn;t ready. Donny hasn't had much of a look in. We regularly start Fred and McTominey. Fred's an underrated player I feel, he's certain to play a big part but McTominey is a really...
  7. Do we extend Ole's contract?

    If we want to improve, we simply have to give him a new contract. He's transitioned about half the squad so far. He needs a new deal to continue the good work
  8. Is Jose Mourinho still our best manager post Fergie?

    Jose was a terrible appointment and it went the way we all knew it would. Predictable tactics, bore football. Scrap your way to a cup win, go on a downward slope annoy everything and get fired in a blaze of glory. Absolutely awful appointment. Out worst appointment by some distance for me...

    There's no words to describe how insanely stupid this post is
  10. Transfer Tweets - 2021/22 | Check the OP for blacklisted sources before posting

    You'd sell DDG for 15Mil!? You value Bailly at twice as much as DDG and think you can get 10mil more for Lingard than DDG. Mental post
  11. Paul Pogba | 2020/21 Performances

    He's never displayed "unplayable" for in his time for us. He's been woefully inconsistent with glimpses of how good he could be. We signed a central midfield player who on current form cannot play the position and has been tried at wide forward. 5 seasons he's been here and it's not worked...
  12. Paul Pogba | 2020/21 Performances

    So he does play centrally? Regardless of how well he does or how much responsibility other players take for him - he is a central player But only a central player if his 2 pals in midfield do all the work yeah?
  13. Grealish To City?

    A transfer I can sadly see happening. City are ruthless and always make good moves. Reminds me of us when we actually competed. Great player, would be awesome for City
  14. Paul Pogba | 2020/21 Performances

    He played central midfield for Juve. He played central midfield for France. Different systems perhaps, but he is a central player. He's more of a central midfielder than he is a wide forward anyway

    Bruno had a bad game also
