  • My God. I thought your comment saying what SAF did there wasn't special was one of the most ridiculous things I've read, but you've trumped it.
  • This is ridiculous. Breaking up the Old Firm monopoly to win the league was an absolutely sensational achievement. They were the last team not from Glasgow to win the league. 36 years ago. But yeah, nothing special.
  • As to your 2nd point, yes. It is. He's overplayed Bruno and Rashford. The entire team was rubbish last night. That's on Ole. And he didn't do enough to change it. Waited way too long to make changes and didn't do anything that was unexpected. All...
  • Again, I said he was forced into it last night, I'm not sure if I can be clearer on that point? I'm talking about generally, his go-to, is 2 defensive mids against poor opposition. But you could change the shape if you really wanted - not saying...
  • Yeah, I said that about last night. True, we had moved to playing Pogba for a while ... but for the most part it's 2 defensive mids. And it's mind numbing against teams like Palace.
  • I've been patient with Ole. I personally think he's done a good job. But, I think this is as far as he should go. I don't see him pushing us on to win big trophies. We might win a cup - we could even win one this year. But I can't see him winning...
  • Woeful.
  • @Bebestation - See what I mean? Utter rubbish.
  • Is it? Maybe, I feel like I see it a lot, but maybe it just stands out to me. I know it was mentioned in the last page or two about "Rashford coming on and offering nothing".
  • Or, as you state, put in some effort. It's funny, the people who defend Martial point to Rashford. Rashford has a far better record with regard to goals and assists, despite being played out wide and not up front. And he puts in way more effort...
  • The problem with Martial isn't talent. It's application, or in his case, a lack of application. That's what most people complaining about him are saying. He did stroll around, again, when brought on yesterday. Yes, the rest of the team had tired...
  • Idiotic. Absurd decision to play Bruno in a dead rubber. Not learning from over playing him at the tail end of last season.
  • I agree. He has changed our fortunes. I agree, we wouldn't be where we are without him. However, do you literally think we'd be 51 goals worse off without Bruno? It's a mind numbingly stupid stat
  • It really doesn't. Because someone else would have played if he didn't. You can't just randomly take away goals from a player in a vacuum. Other poster was right. Dumbest stat ever
  • I agree with this, and I hope it does! I agree that he needs to be dropped for a while. It's interesting - was it this thread .. but someone pointed out - Henderson came back, De Gea (till last night) has upped his game. Telles came in, Shaw...
