King7Eric's latest activity

  • Ah I see. Well I agree with you there. That's why I don't understand all the people on here who get wound up when he criticizes our players. He speaks as a fan and former player who feels the club isn't living up to the standards he helped set...
  • Yeah mate. It was cancelled in 2017 I think.
  • Agreed. A shame they cancelled it, that too on a cliffhanger. It was a historical show that did a good job of portraying the Mongol culture on TV, something you don't find much is western media.
  • Why do you label this interview as funny?? I totally agree with what he's saying there. Not only because I'm a Utd fan but people who have been associated with one particular club for long should have that much respect not to seek employment with...
  • Yes he was. Got 20 goals if I'm not mistaken. But still playing in that role wasn't the best use of his talents. Similar to how Rooney in the 09/10 got 34 goals playing as an out and out #9, but playing in that role wasn't the best use of his...
  • You can argue it was Veron rather than RVN that caused the change, but the effect on Scholes was the same. He was pushed further up the pitch, a position he did very well in, but didn't necessarily bring the best out of him.
  • One thing I haven't really seen mentioned in this thread is how our style of play evolved over the years and how it affected Scholes' role in the team. Before the arrival of RVN, we usually went with a 4-4-2. Although neither of Cole or Yorke...
  • Paul Scholes Ryan Giggs David Beckham Ruud Van Nistelrooy Wayne Rooney
  • King7Eric replied to the thread Anderson v Fred.
    Indeed. But some of the comments one reads on here are quite mind boggling. Someone in one of the comments above was saying Anderson stole a living from the club and only ever had 4-5 good games. I don't know what Man Utd these guys used to...
  • King7Eric replied to the thread Anderson v Fred.
    I've come to the conclusion that either a vast majority of the Caf are quite young or either they only remember the latter years of a player's career with us. This thread is a perfect example of it. On another thread I saw people saying RVP was a...
  • Can you name one manager who won a league title with Championship level or mid table level players?? This is an absurd thing to say. Every manager needs good players to win trophies. The fact that he has bought good players and improved the...
  • This is said about every manager until they win their first trophy or league title. It's not so long ago that people said Klopp lacked the mentality to forge his team from a team that plays exciting football into a team that can win titles. And...
  • Its actually crazy that people think he was always a ranting and raving lunatic during his time at Utd. He was the captain for 8 years of one of the most successful sides in club football, playing with the likes of Schmeichel, Stam, Neville...
  • Well you know what Napoleon said. Better to be a lucky leader than a good one. :D
  • Mourinho could form bonds with players who have that old school mentality. The likes of Drogba, Terry, Essien, Lampard, Eto'o, Zlatan. I struggle to think of any player in the last few years with whom he has formed a genuinely strong bond. Matic...
