  1. Villarreal - Manchester United | EL Final Build-up Thread

    Hell no I don't want them scoring early. Nice comfy 3-0 win please. A couple goals in the first half and one to wrap it up late. Put a marker down that we're gonna compete for the big stuff next year.

    1. As we established earlier productivity and involvement goes beyond goals and assists I hope you agree. Your definition is a very narrow one unnecessarily. 2. Nobody here has argued how many goals rashford has scored or how that ranks him. 3. Nobody has said he should be loaned out. I suggest...

    Because measuring productivity in sports goes way beyond simple goals and assists stats. Otherwise why would all these teams invest in analytics. Clearly they feel they'd rather spend millions to get useful data not the stuff people use to count fantasy football points.

    So nobody has posted those stats in this thread then. So all the stats being quoted and wanked over are useless? Hilarious how you didn't see how you were arguing against yourself.
  5. We are an awfully coached team

    Some really good posts and I agree with Rozay completely. The irony of it all is we experienced it for 20 plus years. Opposition fans would shit on the Nevilles and fletcher of the world. But they'd play magnificently for us and we'd keep winning trophies. For the first ten plus years of the...

    Go on then. What do the advanced statistics say about Rashford?
  7. Who decided to sign Van De Beek?

    Same guy that signed Bruno.
  8. Buffon is leaving Juventus

    United and Juve have always had good relations and Buffon is a legend so wish him well. Didn't know about any of this fascist stuff though.

    The point was made because in response to criticisms of his football , people throw out stats to defend him. His stats are good and he is a good player nobody is arguing that. But when you say he has poor decision making and people throw out GA it's completely missing the point for me.
  10. Marcus Rashford MBE | 2020/21 Performances

    It is not completely brushed aside. It is literally brought up everytime someone criticizes him. Nobody is saying sell Rashford or he's shit. I am saying like many others he is overhyped and his performances leave a lot to be desired. The guy used to run and press magnificently and now he walks...

    Way to miss the point. Giggs and Scholes are better players than Gerrard and lampard but you'd never know it if people used the same arguments they do for rashford. Football is not just stats.
  12. What has the fans' protest won us?

    If you just take those two achievements in isolation then I agree with you. However using oles ten year managerial cv or even just his man utd cv then I'd argue there are plenty of limitations. And this is of course with our goals being consistently winning or challenging for the big trophies...
  13. Scott McTominay | 2020/21 Performances

    I don't see the CB thing personally. Someone earlier said Darren Gibson and I think that's an apt comparison. Gibson had a bit more quality on the ball but less endeavor and arguably less football iq. He'd be a very good championship player and even a low half Premier League team could use his...
  14. Marcus Rashford MBE | 2020/21 Performances

    Of course he's our most productive player. He plays the furthest forward, takes the most shots apart from maybe Bruno and plays in pretty much every game. It's so disheartening when people who enjoyed the likes of Scholes and giggs now throw out GA stats like Bible verses.years ago people were...
