  • iHicksy replied to the thread Chelsea appoint Thomas Tuchel.
    Did you watch Chelsea's last games with Lampard in charge? They have arguably the best squad depth and second best squad in the league in my opinion after City and they looked hopeless under Lampard. He was fine at energizing the young players...
  • Exactly, we're not fecking west ham. He's going to retire with us, why the feck are some of you so obsessed with "re-sale" value. You should be concerned with winning the league not how much money we can recoup. We're Manchester United for god's...
  • I want us to win, but if we lose it'll be nice to know that it denies Pool top 4. I don't wanna be like them - where they became more obsessed with our results even when they were doing well.
  • iHicksy replied to the thread Cavani sticking up for Greenwood.
    Used to love it when some player would try and step up and Zlatan would get involved and give them a bit back whilst smirking. Best thing is he's a taekwondo black belt and knows that he would absolutely wipe the floor with them.
  • I'm as anti-city as they come - but you guys who are saying Pep is overrated are kidding yourselves. The guy is next level tactically compared with most coaches out there. The thing is, his style of play is very technical and requires the players...
  • Sorry i'm a little confused - Pep signed these players in his first season no? E.g before the season started. Hence this was his first squad, what difference does it make that it wasn't the squad the moment he signed the contract if it was still...
  • Is it? I've just taken a look at the team he had. I'm curious as to who you think then had better strength in depth at that time? The team contains , Sagna, Kompany, Zab, Fernando, Sterling, Gundogan, Aguero, kolarov, De bryune, Sane, Silva...
  • iHicksy replied to the thread Your PL team of the season.
    -------------- Martinez -------- Cancelo - Dias - Maguire - Shaw ---------Gundogun ----Grealish ---- ---KDB -- ---Bruno --- Son --- --------------Kane ------------- Bench: Raphina, Foden, Mount, Stones, Chillwell, Mendy, Salah
  • So I think there's a few reasons people are annoyed by it. Neither of them are exceptional at anything that you typically want from a United centre mid. Fred is excellent as pressing, but his positioning, passing and shooting leave a lot to be...
  • iHicksy replied to the thread Next Spurs manager?.
    They really fecked up Sacking poch. Brendon would have been a great choice, but tbh he's probably got a more complete squad for his style of play at Leicester who are doing fantastically.
  • iHicksy replied to the thread 'Pep' Guardiola sack watch.
    Pep: "I felt as if I could no longer lift the team.' " 'But gradually I found it more and more difficult to motivate myself and to motivate the team. That is when you know it is time to walk away,' said Guardiola. The man himself admits he...

    I would add to this that what really sets Ferguson apart is that he instilled a winning mentality in his teams, year after year. This is something Pep is unable to do. It's the most difficult thing to achieve in sports. Just look at Liverpool...
  • Beckham. Even on here, or maybe especially on here I feel he is criminally underrated. I don't know if it's because of the way he left. But he was the absolute best crosser in world football for his entire career. He was so devastatingly...
  • You would have hated our 1999 team. Entire team of "bullies". It's called having a winning mentality imo. Fact is we need more like him.
