    Welcome to The Theatre of Wings :drool:
  2. Solskjaers Legacy

    I agree with most of your criticism on Ole and I applaud your stamina to continually balance out, the generous benefit of the doubt he is getting from people who believe he did an 'acceptable' job. However, I think you're probably a bit too eager to write off the players we have. There are more...
  3. Mason Greenwood | 2021/22 Performances

    The first sentence I can agree with but the second I think mostly applies (and more recently) when it comes to in and around the penalty box where he has become a bit too focused on the getting the shot away. His all around general play and maturity when it comes to link and build up is usually...

    You liar. It’s … Rebekah Vardy.
  5. Edouard Mendy | Chelsea player

    Can someone give me some 'objective' criticisms about his game? I haven't really seen enough of Mendy or even Allison but they both give me the same vibes of goalkeepers performing at a high standard who help their team (shot stopping, box control, sweeping) but don't strike me as proper...
  6. Aaron Wan-Bissaka | 2021/22 Performances

    He's been deservedly dropped but he can become a proper player under Ralf imo. He could be a right back version of Fred of sorts because he has the base physical and technical qualities (on a good day). He may not have that natural creative streak but he has potential to press, shut down...
  7. Donny van de Beek | 2021/22 Performances

    Under a different manager, this is absolutely his best situation all things considered. New energy sapping style of play = more squad rotation, a manager who actually knows how to coach = more tactical flexibility and with Pogba out/Bruno's indifferent form, this is as good as it gets for him...
  8. Fred | 2021/22 Performances

    I don't disagree with that but I think most people are saying he's a routinely progressive passer who sits between those two players you've mentioned. It sounds like you're suggesting Fred's base level is Djemba Djemba level, which is extremely harsh and not true at all imo. The context to his...
  9. Cristiano Ronaldo | 2021/22 Performances

    Got to admit I was a bit apprehensive about his move to us before but he's been really professional and I don't really have any complaints about his performances. I'm only worried his work rate is not sustainable for his body or for the progression of our team. For example as good as he was...
  10. Marcus Rashford MBE | 2021/22 Performances

    I've defended him and will continue to have hope that he'll return to form but yikes. That is all.
  11. Donny van de Beek | 2021/22 Performances

    Played well when he came on. He'll probably start the game mid-week. Looking forward to that and the amount of changes Ralf is likely to make :smirk:
  12. Jadon Sancho | 2021/22 Performances

    Pretty much this for me.
  13. Fred | 2021/22 Performances

    Think it's more of a chicken and egg situation in regards to ball progression when it comes to the passer and the receiver. Fred deserves criticism for his misplaced passes and a particularly inconsistent and poor 12 months but today's performance is not really a 180 degree difference in what he...
  14. Mason Greenwood | 2021/22 Performances

    The point people are making though is that you need to hold your bias and judge as impartially as you can. By most metrics and from what we've seen lately, Greenwood's performance was exactly what we needed today. Yes he was a bit selfish and tried too much in 2-3 situations but the other...
  15. Victor Lindelöf | 2021/22 Performances

    Very good, no complaints. Long may it continue.
