  1. Amad Diallo signs for Manchester United

    Er... Shaw, Telles, Matic, Fred, Greenwood (both, but left is his preferred) That’s 5 just off the top of my head
  2. The Caf's "Past it or just out of form?" thread

    Being given a new 3 year deal probably has something to do with it as well. He dropped off a cliff the moment that happened. Quite why we saw fit to tie up an aging asset for quite so long, I've no idea. Its not as if the heavyweights of Europe were queuing up to pinch him on a free.
  3. Clash of heads on a football field: Time to clamp down and deal out punishment!

    I predominantly play as a target man and have had numerous head collisions over the years where neither I nor the defender marking me have been "the aggressor". It happens. Timing of a jump can be fractionally off - more so at amateur level with less practiced players. Another player not even...
  4. The Media Targeting Greenwood

    What was discussed, and then subsequently not discussed, is thankfully no longer a Greenwood-related discussion.
  5. Players currently playing who you think could become good managers

    I could see Seamus Coleman doing it. Ignoring the "good" part, Rooney is a shoo-in to manage eventually, probably at Derby. And I expect he'll be a short lived flop.
  6. Aaron Wan-Bissaka | 2020/21 Performances

    The man could tackle climate change.
  7. Paris St Germain vs Manchester United

    So, double handedly then?
  8. Pickford's tackle on VVD: What should be the punishment?

    I would argue that Pickford's movements there are not in any way goalkeeper-specific. It could just as easily have been an Everton defender making a last ditch block/tackle, in the same manner.Therefore ask, if he had a blue outfield shirt on rather than a green goalkeeper's top and some gloves...
  9. Mason Greenwood | 2020/21 Performances

    Yep, I get that. It’s just that publicising it perpetuates the myth, so I just wanted to provide some evidence to the contrary. He’s quick for a footballer but not in the context of top class sprinters. “This is fact” as Rafa would say :)
  10. Mason Greenwood | 2020/21 Performances

    Re: the supposed '100m under-13 Great Britain sprint race' where he 'broke the Great Britian record'. As an even bigger fan of athletics than I am of football, it always makes me laugh when I see hyperbole like this pop up. There is a website which collates every individual performance of...
  11. Is Cristiano Ronaldo United Legend?

    Nonsense. In a very good side, CR7 was the difference-maker that made us win the Champions League (penalty miss aside). With him in the team we just felt unbeatable. The same cannot be said of Ruud. Even in his first 3 years it was clear Ronaldo had a magic about him. I used to laugh when my...
  12. Jack Grealish

    As others have said, it feels very much like Zaha's situation. Too good for the club he's at. Not quite good enough for anyone to pay the premium that comes with him being the homegrown hero.
  13. Brandon Williams | 2019/20 Performances

    I recall under Mourinho we had countless people on here posting that they would "rather see a team filled with raw, hungry local lads, and finish 15th in the PL". As soon as one (not a whole team - but one!) such player is included because our first choice is injured, the same people throw...
  14. Is Daniel James set to become our best signing since RVP?

    I can't ever see him becoming physically strong enough to be a competent fullback, as some are suggesting. All well and good leaving him to keep the width, but he'll have to defend occasionally. Valencia was built like an Ox. Besides which, AWB will be our rightback for the next decade.
