  1. Jadon Sancho - United in advanced negotiations per Fabrizio Romano

    Come on now bud. One “Amadeus moment” :lol: does not equate to the entire logic of the Caf.
  2. Conte leaving Inter?

  3. Victor Osimhen - £74m Napoli Signing

    Wow, that's steep. What's happened to the post covid price crash?
  4. Rooney: SAF got his tactics wrong against Barcelona

    Yeah, agreed. Especially during our great European (form) run where we made back to back finals etc. We had some very conservative counter attacking performances which served us well. SAF wasn't stupid though, he might have said that statement out loud trying to lift the players...
  5. Managerial Stagnation in English Football

    Yeah, I wasn’t defending any decision there bud, probably merely stating the reasons for the safety first option. I edited my post a bit after - I think there’s consensus on the Caf that the tired old formula of Moyes & friends should stop.
  6. Managerial Stagnation in English Football

    Risk averse would be the first guess. It’s too expensive to experiment and get relegated, so human nature dictates its easier to go for the safer option (which in fairness, doesn’t always work out either). Think playing expansive football with a poor squad is much riskier than trying to...
  7. Would you sack or keep Ole? (Poll reopened)

    Is this thread still going? Finished third - surely he deserves another season to continue the progress? Yeah, there’s lessons to be learned (just like at most other clubs/managers). So let’s hope we learn from it as we continue progressing. Onwards and upwards.
  8. Troy Deeney - Family Man

    The new “Vokes/Barnes/Wood” :lol:
  9. Did the signings of Zlatan and Lukaku stall Rashford and Martial's development?

    Zlatan no. Lukaku (& to an extent Sánchez), yes. Zlatan is the kind of inspiration and legend that youngsters can learn from and he was always a short term signing.
  10. Transfer Tweets - 2019/20 | Check the OP for blacklisted sources before posting

    Thanks fellas. I thought so. It might also explain why a host of clubs missed out as he wasn't an obvious choice as a fullback.
  11. The disrespect of Nemanja Matic

    Agreed with that bud. Aargh, that makes sense. For interest sake, is there an "assist the assistor" stat?
  12. Transfer Tweets - 2019/20 | Check the OP for blacklisted sources before posting

    Yeah, Davies seems to have been a real find at LB for Bayern. I don't know much about him, outside of highlights, but wasn't he a midfielder until very recently converted to fullback by FCB?
  13. The disrespect of Nemanja Matic

    No doubt there. I'm just not sure a "involved" in the build up stat, without defining its meaning, can used to draw any conclusions.
