  • I think it's a good idea. The formation would actually put every player in their preferred position which for me is a good start (Fred and McT are better 8's than 6's and Bruno seems to be naturally more of a false 9 than a 10). Add in that the...
  • Your post assumes that overnight our trio will be part of a squad that expects a double digit possession advantage over almost every opposition. It also assumes that Bruno will be lobotomised and instead of regularly opting for the most risky...

    Bojo didn't have to spend Christmas alone with Carrie.
  • This is what he should play. However Ole won't have the stones to drop Ronaldo, Pogba and Bruno. Therefore he'll almost certainly go with:
  • finneh replied to the thread Paul Pogba | 2021/22 Performances.
    Pogba was one of four players incapable or unwilling to work hard whether due to age or apathy. If we changed one player I'd expect nothing to change. Changing all four I'd expect a team who would be more talented than the opposition and also who...

    If you need to play any combination of McFred, VDB, Lingard, Cavani, Rashford and possibly Greenwood in the front 6 in the short term then so be it. Fundamentally the first expectation of a United player should be that they work as hard as the...
  • I think it's a bit of a cop out blaming his poor form on the manager. We've seen numerous players over the last decade shine under awful conditions. Whether it be Greenwood, Rashford, Cavani, Shaw, Martial; hell even Januzaj, Smalling and Lukaku...

    Looks like he's doing well compared to his opposite number! https://yougov.co.uk/topics/politics/trackers/is-boris-johnson-incompetent
  • First day back after my holiday. Update from my transport manager "Up to now we have had no issues. I have though told drivers to fill up when they can on route rather than at the end of each day". In fairness I've just been to the station...

    No I'm saying did the UK have more old people in the 80's than the 90's and also whether we have comparatively more people now than that difference. @MikeUpNorth Sorry if it was unclear. Although reading it again it might still be? I think it's...

    Were the demographics significantly different in the 80's vs 90's in the opposite direction (less old people in the 90's)? Likewise are the demographics now substantially different to 20 years ago? Is say it's more to do with ideology.
  • finneh replied to the thread Keir Starmer Labour Leader.
    Fair enough. To me it looks like a consistently upward trend from each decade having lows in the high 20's and highs in the low 30's to now having lows in the low 30's and highs now in the mid 30's (for example the last time the figure was under...

    No the complaint is regarding taxation as a proportion of GDP, which will usually drop during a recession (and has certainly done so temporarily during Covid) Since the early 90's it's grown pretty consistently year on year to be on a consistent...
  • finneh replied to the thread Keir Starmer Labour Leader.
    I think it's difficult to compare countries who have completely different models for growth. Ireland have a different model than Singapore who have a different model to the UK, Sweden or France I think because of that it's very difficult to...
