    Class is temporary. Form is permanent.
  • I’m looking forward to it. Can’t speak for the rest of y’all.
  • You write as if any player can be taught any role - to a league winning level of quality. That is not so. A top class forward or no 10 can sometimes adapt to a different kind of role and play it to a world class level, but it is the exception...
  • I very much disagree with this. As I understand Bruno, he is not technically supersound, in stark contrast to Scholes and Kroos. He has the unusual combination of constantly looking for the key hole to the box, never being aftaid to try anything...
  • Grande replied to the thread Would you take Ten Hag at United?.
    I think I saw some stats that he had the highest win percentage of Bayern II since 2000. I can’t think of the source, but it’s not in direct contradiction.with what you say, if he won the fourth league but lost a knock-out qualifier, he might...
  • Grande replied to the thread Would you take Ten Hag at United?.
    Do you know why he went from Bayern second team to Utrecht? Best job he could get? I think he became both head coach and sporting director, so it’s not bad I guess. Utrecht is a decent team. From what I gathered he had the best results of any...

    What a stupid maxim.:lol: Is it a call for suicide?
  • Grande replied to the thread It's improved tempo that did it!.
    I agree with the OP that the tempo of the ball was mych higher for most of the second hal, particularily the firat twenty minutes of it. It was one-touch, two-touch pass and move. Firat half the passing was slow and cumbersome. This along with...
  • No, mr Wolvored, it’s not time for going for The Wolvo Way, nice try.
  • Grande replied to the thread Next Newcastle manager.
    History is full of reigning champions struggling in the following qualification. It’s a fairly normal reaction to success, and is seldom related to the quality of the coach or relationship with the players. Good managers and coaches find their...
  • Hope to see some of the younger players getting game time, then. It’s easy to forget how the United women’s rise from the ashes happened on a large part from the foundation of the MU Foundation’s youth football. Players who had been there and...
  • Grande replied to the thread Would you take Conte at United?.
    I was here during the Mourinho era and had these sentiments at that time, hence no revisionism on my part. The difference between Mourinho and Solskjær when it comes to playing styles, ethos and attitude approaching the game are huge, and Conte...
  • When I’ve done the same procedure with the kids, they usually rediscover some old toy which make them forget about the want for new ones. It works pretty well when I don’t fancy funding endless plastic production and don’t necessesarily want my...
