Dante's latest activity

  • Good performance. His passing gets underrated because it's usually low risk. But that's what you want with Bruno playing low percentage balls ahead of him. He's obviously capable of breaking the lines when needed. Also, the idea that his...
  • Dante replied to the thread Lionel Messi | PSG Watch.
    He's finished. Messi is only still playing in order to try and keep up with the stat monster that is Cristiano Ronaldo. Both care so much about their legacies that they're refusing to quit first out of fear that the other will eclipse them. The...
  • Dante replied to the thread Declan Rice.
    We bought our three transfers from Germany, Spain and Italy. And also targetted Camavinga (France) and Goretzka (Germany) for midfield but got rebuffed. I'm pretty sure 'outside the Prem' is exactly where we're looking. In fact, we even ignored...
  • The lack of pace up front is a huge shift which not a lot of people seem to be acknowledging. For a few seasons, we had the fastest frontline in Europe with the likes of Rashford, (a less heavy) Martial and Dan James. This season we're playing...
  • Dante replied to the thread Ethan Laird | 2021/22 Performances.
    He's the reason why we targetted a 30 year old right back rather than a 25 year old in his prime during the transfer window. Ole wants a clear pathway for Ethan into the first team over the next few years. The failure to get Trippier will just...
  • I absolutely loved this bit. Most comedians use the rule of three as the setup within a single joke. But Norm uses it here to link three different jokes. It's fecking genius. He's the only guy who could have pulled it off. There's a reason why...
  • That season (2008/9) United only scored 68 goals in the league. By way of comparison, we got 73 last season. It was an attack that very much looked better on paper than it performed on the pitch.
  • The biggest compliment I can give him is that on my fuzzy stream today, I couldn't tell if it was Greenwood or Ronaldo on the ball at times.
  • Ronaldo learned that from Greenwood.
  • I think every one of Ronaldo's goals for us so far has been a messy spill or squirm through the 'keeper. Reckon the next one's gonna be a screamer.
  • This is clearly a 4-2-2-2, imo.
  • I get that Pogba has had freedom in his roles recently. But he's been popping up everywhere other than leftwing so far. Looks almost like a 4-2-2-2.
  • Dante replied to the thread 'Pep' Guardiola sack watch.
    If City had a top manager like Ole or Klopp, they would have won today's match.
  • Overall, it was a nothing episode especially in terms of comedy. And none of the bigger narrative arcs were touched upon, so I'm not sure what the point was. The only thing it gave us was a bit of characterisation. But even that I thought was a...
  • Dante replied to the thread Ruben Neves.
    I wanted him last summer even though I knew he wasn't a top tier player. But he wouldn't have needed to be in this squad. For creativity, we have Bruno and Sancho in front. For defensive solidity, we have Maguire and Varane behind. What United...
