    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.
  2. Ole Gunnar Solskjær | 2020/21 Discussion

    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.
  3. Ole Gunnar Solskjær | 2020/21 Discussion

    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 like for like substitions and exactly what I...

    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 it's what I'd do.
  5. Ole Gunnar Solskjær | 2020/21 Discussion

    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 us PL or CL. He's just not learning. Every time...

    @Bebestation - See what I mean? Utter rubbish.
  9. Anthony Martial | 2020/21 Performances

    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".
  10. Anthony Martial | 2020/21 Performances

    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 than Martial. But they say Rashford doesn't put in...
  11. Anthony Martial | 2020/21 Performances

    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 and was sitting back a bit more, but that's no...
  12. Manchester United vs Real Sociedad

    Idiotic. Absurd decision to play Bruno in a dead rubber. Not learning from over playing him at the tail end of last season.
  13. Real Sociedad vs Manchester United

    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
  14. Real Sociedad vs Manchester United

    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
  15. Anthony Martial | 2020/21 Performances

    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 upped his game. Look at Martial since Cavani came...
