  1. Manchester City banned from CL for 2 seasons and fined 30 million euros | CAS - Ban lifted, fined 10 million

    And democratic presidents don’t carry out illegal invasions / drone assassinations on foreign soil /run torture camps / fund the ongoing genocide in illegally occupied Palestine etc? Point being that those throwing out accusations of sports washing at other clubs should look to who owns their...
  2. Manchester City banned from CL for 2 seasons and fined 30 million euros | CAS - Ban lifted, fined 10 million

    I agree. And both hues of US government are equal in their position as being the worlds biggest human rights abusers - both sides fund the brutal and racist military occupation of Palestine, both sides fund the US torture camps, the illegal wars, the tearing down of legitimate governments etc...
  3. Manchester City banned from CL for 2 seasons and fined 30 million euros | CAS - Ban lifted, fined 10 million

    The Glazers actively funded Trump. Actively assisted a deluded racist to get into power . . and their man organised and funded atrocities in Venezuela, maintained the USA’s torture & deaths camps at Guantanamo et al and etc. If you think that the billionaires that pay for presidential campaigns...
  4. Aguero - not long at City?

    In the basis of goals scored per minute played he’s the best ever / most lethal ever striker to play in the Premier League - better than Henry, RVP etc. Afew have scored more (Shearer for one) but they played here for much longer. Love the bloke but nice to see that he’s off because he spends...
  5. Nathan Ake (Close to signing for Man City, £40m fee)

    He has been out injured / only available for 10 games and has played in 5 of those in his first season at a club where the complexity of game play mean that many players take a season to settle in. You can yeah but yeah but all you like but it’s a fact. What part of that don’t you understand?
  6. Nathan Ake (Close to signing for Man City, £40m fee)

    Haha great comedy comments - I love the nonsense, keep it up. It’s got absolutely nothing to do with Stones being resurgent or otherwise. Ake’s a left sided defender who’s been out injured for most of the season and Stones is a right sided centre back. Of the 10 games that Ake’s been fit to...
  7. We are an awfully coached team

    I think you’re absolutely right in this. Some of your supporters slag your players off for losing the ball in tight situations, or for making errant passes under pressure, but the cause is a pitiful lack of good training. Players in a well trained side don’t need to think about what they do...
  8. Fred - £47m well spent

    In all honesty, no, not a wind up. I make no attempt to hide who I support but I’m also a football supporter and watch a lot of United. I come on here to chew the fat with other football supporters and I don’t ever intend to annoy anyone. If you can remember, both City and United had an...
  9. Fred - £47m well spent

    Is Fred worth the £47M he cost? Yes, undoubtedly and IMO he’d show himself worth much more if he played in a well coached / organised team rather than a poorly schooled group of generally brilliant individuals. I suppose that the acid test is to compare him to other buys and on that basis, if...
  10. Joe Hart - Manchester City 'Legend'

    Nope. Pep‘s footy requires a high line which means it requires a keeper who has the bottle to come off his line and who can use his feet and distribute accurately. Hart had none of that and wasn’t willing or able to improve himself. Football stepping forward into the world of the modern game...
  11. Erling Haaland

    If the buy-out goes down the total price remains unaffected because the player (and his agent) fully understand that a players cost is a combination of selling club fee, agent fee and player salary. Thus, if the buy-out drops by £30M the player & agent will clearly want that £30M, that is...
  12. Post match vs Manchester City

    Hats off to Ole, he had our number there and you deserved the win.
  13. Is De Gea Man Utd Legend?

    I think DeGea is a legend but the wrong kind. His failings in terms of his poor distribution, his refusal to command even his 6 yard area and his reluctance to actually catch a cross or dive at the feet of an advancing attacker, means that he’s stopped United from keeping pace with modern...
  14. Harry Maguire | 2020/21 Performances

    You mean ‘slabhead’ but slaphead’s funnier given the context of where the remark was made.
  15. Riyad Mahrez

    Good bump, he’s a great player. Great on the break but especially adept at working the ball and threading needle passes in small spaces - very effective against tightly packed defences.
