  1. Scott McTominay | 2021/22 Performances

    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 positioning is bad is out-dated. The guy has...
  2. 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 difference is that Messi isn't the superhuman...
  3. 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 likes of Neves and Bissouma, despite them...
  4. Ole Gunnar Solskjær | 2021/22 Discussion

    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 with Ronaldo, Pogba and Sancho. Better...
  5. 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 mean he gets fasttracked.
  6. Television Norm MacDonald Has Died Aged 61

    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 he was the comic's comic.
  7. Have we or any other club ever been so stacked with attacking talent as what we currently have?

    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.
  8. Mason Greenwood | 2021/22 Performances

    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.
  9. West Ham United vs Manchester United

    Ronaldo learned that from Greenwood.
  10. West Ham United vs Manchester United

    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.
  11. West Ham United vs Manchester United

    This is clearly a 4-2-2-2, imo.
  12. West Ham United vs Manchester United

    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.
  13. 'Pep' Guardiola sack watch

    If City had a top manager like Ole or Klopp, they would have won today's match.
  14. Television Ted Lasso (Apple TV Football Comedy)

    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 bit shit in the first half before pulling me back...
  15. 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 needed in midfield was somebody who could tackle...
