  1. 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 initially but once they brought in new players he...
  2. Harry Kane | "I want to be winning the biggest prizes that there is to offer as a team and we are not quite doing that"

    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 sake, if we sign a player and he's good enough if...
  3. Who here wants us to beat Leicester?

    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.
  4. 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.
  5. Man City 2020/21 - General discussion

    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 to move in certain patterns to create overloads...
  6. Man City 2020/21 - General discussion

    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 the same squad he started the season with?
  7. Man City 2020/21 - General discussion

    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, Clichy, Fernandinho, Otamendi, Navas, Nolito, Yaya...
  8. 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
  9. Fred and McT can’t defend… or can they?

    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 desired. Scott is really more of a box to box centre...
  10. 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.
  11. '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 struggles to motivate a team past a certain point...
  12. 'Pep' Guardiola sack watch

    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 this season, Klopp cannot master this skill either...
  13. Players you rate more highly than others did...

    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 effective that he didn't need to use pace to beat a man...
  14. Bruno Fernandes | 2020/21 Performances

    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.
