  • We've experienced a lot of bad days at Anfield, under SAF as well. There are positives to take from the game, as with all games. I get what bugs a lot of people, the attitude that it was 'not bad all things considered'. There's no shame in...
  • eire-red replied to the thread Post match vs Liverpool.
    Lack of quality told in the end, but can't really fault the team for effort. Considering we're missing Rashford, Pogba and McTom, arguably our 3 most influential players, the result was almost expected. Disappointing as it is, I don't find...
  • eire-red replied to the thread Liverpool vs Manchester United.
    Souness is such a clown as usual. Even when he's right, he just has such a sour way of making his point. In all honesty though, was that a foul? To me VVD was never going to win that and jumps into De Gea, making contact and not getting...

    We need a goal threat up front. If we leave it how it is then I can see us conceding a second and Liverpool seeing the game out. Get Greenwood and Mata on for Williams and Pereira and go 4-2-3-1, with Greenwood up top. I think we've done ok so...
  • Agree with you on this. There seems to be no common goal at this club at all. It feels like we're being run like a multinational and not a football club. We have huge revenue, a worldwide commodity, an incredible brand, we pay huge wages, but...
  • We have spent huge amounts of cash in the last 6 years. I think our failure is less a sign of a lack of ambition and more a sign of lack of direction as a club.
  • We struggle to control games and stifle the opposition with possession football. We gift the incentive to the opposition and often play too passively. It's not a problem that's isolated to the back 4. Shaw, AWB, Maguire and Lindelof are all good...
  • Ideally 100-120m would be good business for us. No point holding onto a player that's possibly unhappy if we reveive an acceptable offer. Cash in and spend the money on 2 quality replacements in midfield, and maybe we'll be better off in the...
  • eire-red replied to the thread Is Pogba as good as gone?.
    We've sold better players than Pogba before, the only difference is we've never been in such a shambles before when selling an important player. My honest view is that we should sell him, not for the fact that he's a mercenary, or a diva or...
  • eire-red replied to the thread Arsenal vs Manchester United.
    Trying to play counter attacking football with Lingard as the link man between midfield and attack is just pointless. He's broken down more of our attacks at this stage than Xhaka and Torreira combined.
  • eire-red replied to the thread Is Pogba as good as gone?.
    If he's actually injured again then it's terrible from our medical team. That's twice we've brought the same player back prematurely only to relapse once more. Don't really know what to think on this one. Too much noise from Raiola for nothing...
  • eire-red replied to the thread Christian Eriksen.
    The similarities to this and the Sanchez deal are obvious. A hungry and motivated Eriksen in that no. 10 position, pulling the strings is an enticing prospect if he's back to his best, but that's the big if. Grealish's name is mentioned a lot...
  • We finally have it lads, direct transcripts of Ole/Woody's 3 year plan. Rumour has it it was devised in between multiple rounds of Connect 4
  • eire-red replied to the thread Post match vs Watford.
    We looked better when Pogba came on but still not good enough. Such an apathetic performance, the likes of which we have seen so often. How can we go into a game against the bottom team in the league, a team that have been dreadful all season...
  • eire-red replied to the thread Watford vs Manchester United.
    I really hope that's not the case, cause if it is it's both horrific coaching and really bad reflection of the players mentality.
