  1. Erik ten Hag - Manchester United manager

    Haha, this guy. Satire isn't dead.
  2. Adrien Rabiot | Di Marzio: United have agreed a deal with Juventus

    You want to go all in on a young player who has zero experience of men's football? That would be doing him no favours at all and could really damage his career. He needs handling carefully, 5-10 starts and some sub appearances this season and let's see how he goes.
  3. Marcus Rashford | 2022/23 Performances

    I was at the game and that's not what I saw at all. Maybe on TV his occasional press looked good, but I saw several times when he made a run, wasn't found and then strolled back with his head down while the game continued. He did of course occasionally do the chasing the keeper down by himself...
  4. Erik ten Hag - Manchester United manager

    Can't deny I'm already worried about his prospects after one game. It's quite possible we lose 3 or 4 out of the next 5 games and it could be over before it even began. There's no room for manoeuvre. The fans have had enough after years of failure and are not going to be patient. They will...
  5. Frenkie DeJong | Orny: Barcelona say FDJs contract from previous board has ‘criminality’ and want him to sign new contract, threats of court cases

    I'm not suggesting buying players for the sake of it. I'm suggesting buying decent/good players rather than nobody, because we simply do not have the numbers. It's perfectly conceivable that both Fred and McTominay are injured or unavailable at times - I guess those advocating the 'FDJ or...
  6. Frenkie DeJong | Orny: Barcelona say FDJs contract from previous board has ‘criminality’ and want him to sign new contract, threats of court cases

    We have to sign someone. Just from a numbers perspective. We need 4 or 5 midfielders capable of playing deeper midfield. McFred are two. Garner if we want to risk a young player being able to step up. Maybe counts as half. Donny? We're scraping barrels here.
  7. Hakim Ziyech | Chelsea player

    As cheap and experienced backup for Sancho on the right, this makes much more sense than Antony for £70m. He's not great, but he's pretty decent and understands the ETH system. Of course Antony is better with a much higher ceiling, but given our major issues elsewhere in the squad and the fact...
  8. Frenkie DeJong | Orny: Barcelona say FDJs contract from previous board has ‘criminality’ and want him to sign new contract, threats of court cases

    That's on top of £80m+ for Sterling and Koulibaly. I mean, it's possible - new owner wanting to make a massive statement etc. But it feels...unlikely.
  9. Where will we finish this season ?

    Eh? For a start he's lost Pogba, Matic, Cavani and Greenwood compared to last season, and the star striker wants out. 'Heavy investment' is required just to keep the same standard of squad as this time last year. None of that is his doing. The answer to your question though is yes, a million...
  10. Do you still harbor resentment towards the players for last season?

    I'm trying not to, and there were definitely extenuating circumstances, but... Many of them crossed the line into insulting the fans with their performances and efforts. As someone who spent a lot of money attending games, yes it stung seeing what they were doing on the pitch. Basic levels of...
  11. Manchester United vs Rayo Vallecano (Sun 31st July, 16:00 UK time) | Happy King (Bebe) Day

    Yeah he's really poor and always has been. Waste of time giving him minutes, just sell him for 5m to someone.
  12. Scott McTominay | 2022/23 Performances

    Bit of a difference between Championship Burnley and West Ham. As it happens, he wouldn't get into West Ham's midfield, not even close. May squeeze onto the bench, maybe.
  13. Frenkie DeJong | Orny: Barcelona say FDJs contract from previous board has ‘criminality’ and want him to sign new contract, threats of court cases

    This has got to the stage where even if he signs for us and goes on to win back to back ballon d'ors and takes us to champions league glory I'll still feel like it would be an anticlimax.
  14. Are Barce in major financial Trouble

    Wow, that's an epic thread bump, superb stuff.
  15. Benjamin Sesko | United want him | Raees has had a word & insulted him about his pace lol

    I like the look of this guy, clearly got a lot of potential. I'm no stat freak, but a couple of interesting stats via sofascore from last season in the bundesliga: Scored 5 goals from 8 starts and 16 sub appearances, 1 goal every 194 mins. That's pretty decent for a very young player. Missed...
