    Is anyone thinking of getting Man of Medan at the end of this month? It's from the developers of Until Dawn and costs only 25 pounds but it's expected to be a very short game. Weirdly it has a 4 player online co-op which i can't recall being done...

    100% chance if you're Moyes and playing against Fulham. I'm sure I recall him replying something like 'you'd need a football brain to understand that' when asked about the infamous 81 crosses against Fulham.

    Yup. Played a lot in 08-09 there, also alternated a lot between CM and LM in the latter years too. Excellent chance creator from the centre but could be a bit reckless in possession at times.

  4. Irwin99 replied to the thread Luke Shaw | 2019/20 Performances.

    I think he was my highest rated player from last season but it was a poor season from everyone overall and I'm still not sure about him. I'd love to see him run more with the ball as on the few occasions he's done it he looks such a powerful...

    That's a back four that can play. I watched an old game from 99-00 season the other day and I always forget how comfortable Stam was with the ball at his feet and bringing the ball out from the back.

  6. Irwin99 replied to the thread Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Manchester United.

    Didn't you actually do that to us last season? I think it was the FA cup game where you countered our attack and it was a pretty comfortable win. I'm going for a scruffy 1-1 draw. Going to be really interesting to see if we can break teams down...

    Three games I'm hoping to play in September are Borderlands 3, Man of Medan and Final Fantasy 8 Remaster (i'm almost certain it will launch in September on the 20th anniversary of the North American release date) . Got nothing to play at the...

    I wonder what he's actually like in the dressing room. Looks like it's going to be 5 years at the club :eek:

  9. Irwin99 replied to the thread How good was Zlatan?.

    It's ok to judge his performances in the champions league but it's a bit harsh to use the fact that's he's never won it to say he wasn't a truly great player. Patrick Vieira never even made it past the quarter final of the CL but is still a...

  10. Irwin99 replied to the thread How good was Zlatan?.

    I genuinely loved having him here and he had that special aura about him that the best United players have had but whenever I saw him in the champions league for Inter, Barca or PSG (which wasn't that often to be fair) he never quite reached the...

    Great read. I hope the Green and Gold campaign resurfaces as at least a visible symbol that United fans aren't happy.

  12. Irwin99 replied to the thread Your midfield 3?.

    There was a thread on here saying we'd be fine in the midfield this season and lots of posts saying we're overreacting to suggestions that it's pretty poor. You never know there might be a player that really steps up this season (Fred, Periera)...

  13. Irwin99 replied to the thread Your midfield 3?.

    No one picking Matic :lol: I've never been a big fan of his time here and i'm not advocating him starting but i'm just pointing out that he's the only proper defensive midfielder we have. The downside is his lack of athleticism and conservative...

  14. Irwin99 replied to the thread Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Manchester United.

    Of the two games last year I recall that we were genuinely unlucky and were the better team in one but pretty much outfought and out-thought in another (think that was the FA cup match) It will be really interesting to see if Wolves cede...

  15. Irwin99 replied to the thread Ball retention.

    Yesterday definitely took the theory that 'if you win the midfield battle you win the game' and turned it on it's head. I expect there will be a lot of arguments about the balance of the midfield over the season. Lots of them will be centred on...
