  1. We're a dark horse in next season's CL

    We are incredibly difficult to beat now which is something. If you rarely lose and have the goal threat we do, you have a massive chance in knockout football. It'll be telling how we do in the Europa League now (if we go full strength). We need to avoid performances like Chelsea, but we...
  2. Jadon Sancho - United in advanced negotiations per Fabrizio Romano

    Well and truly. This is one of the first times I've thought we'd get the big deal done early on rather than 4-6 weeks of fannying. So, we'll probably sign him next month...
  3. Rooney: SAF got his tactics wrong against Barcelona

    Yeah, 2009 had a much bigger chance for sure. At the time, I thought we were the only team in Europe that could feasibly beat that Barcelona side in a big game. However, after the game I felt very deflated and was sure I'd seen the best club side. It was the same feeling I had when Jose first...
  4. Manchester United vs LASK

    I said it earlier in the thread, I expected the main first choice players to only get a week off and join training on August 3rd (today). It's a little surprising they were brought back on the Saturday. I still think almost none of them will be in the squad for the game though. I would have also...
  5. Rooney: SAF got his tactics wrong against Barcelona

    I recall Rio saying something similar, but I think we'd have probably lost both games anyway...
  6. Play the kids for Europa [Poll added]

    Completely forgot about the Super Cup. I know it's largely meaningless to most people, but we've only won it once in our history, same with the Europa League. They're still major honours and I want them. I want more trophies than Liverpool.
  7. Apart from his passing, what did Smalling actually do wrong? And are you against him coming back next season?

    This did frustrate me to no end against Leicester on the final day. Watch that first 60 minutes (particularly the first half) we tried to play out so many times and failed. It was almost embarrassing because Leicester's press wasn't even that good. We would be worse than that with Smalling in...
  8. Chris Smalling | 2019/20 Performances

    Again, the decision basically isn't really ours in a way. Of course the club can do what they want with a player under contract, but he wants to be starting every week at his age. Ole can't guarantee him that so he wants to leave. I think everyone would be in agreement that he is a better...
  9. Television Better Call Saul | Includes Breaking Bad Spoilers

    That's pretty disappointing, especially for Rhea Seehorn. If there was going to be any kind of continuation of the Breaking Bad universe (not that I think there should ever be anything else after BCS ends) my front runner would be the Kim Wexler character. Perhaps seeing more from her side...
  10. Players you really wanted here but failed when they joined other clubs

    Not a drastic failure, but he didn't fit in at Real Madrid and I'd really wanted us to sign him that Summer prior. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar His seasons at Real Madrid and AC Milan from 2009-2010 would probably be regarded as failure despite 15 goals in 45 league games combined. Went to Schalke...
  11. Is Martial the best dribbler in the league?

    Third page and no one made the Harry Kane joke yet? :lol:
  12. Times: Finding buyers for the dead wood is Manchester United’s biggest challenge this window

    If we go purely off players who were sold / released and don't include loans or youth: 19/20 In Out James Lukaku Wan-Bissaka Darmian Maguire Herrera Bruno (January) Valencia Young (January) 18/19 In Out Fred Blind Dalot Johnstone* Grant Carrick (Retired) No January...
  13. Times: Finding buyers for the dead wood is Manchester United’s biggest challenge this window

    I'm just going off how a business would see quantity of assets. It would be a massive change from our usual transfer dealings and direction we're taking to do this. If we do it, fair enough and hopefully it is a good decision and the correct model. I just highly doubt it'll happen because it...
  14. Times: Finding buyers for the dead wood is Manchester United’s biggest challenge this window

    Yeah, I agree with that to a degree as well. I think we can get both more and less money than a lot of our fans would think. It'll balance out but I think a lot of these players can command fees in the £10-20m if we're going to scrutinise it. However, I think the people who post a list like...
  15. Times: Finding buyers for the dead wood is Manchester United’s biggest challenge this window

    I do agree, I just don't think it is going to be as many as 10 being offloaded to bring in three. I expect more like seven to be shifted if we are lucky and still sign the three you expect. Of course, it's different when loans and/or out of contract players are included. We will have trimmed...
