lex talionis's latest activity

  • Martial is an outstanding dribbler, but I haven't seen enough of other players in the league to say who's the best. I'd still like to see a bit more consistent end product out of him. Anthony had a great run to close out the season, but for...
  • That day is still like yesterday for me. Bayern dominated us in the 90, but then stoppage time happened. I'm not sure I could have spent time typing posts during such a momentous occasion.
  • The underrating of Matic on the Caf is borderline criminal, but what can't be denied is that Matic can't perform at a top level for 35-45 matches next season. We need to acquire or develop a successor to Matic now. Fred and McTominay are not...
  • lex talionis replied to the thread What about our Tim?.
    Yes, TFM has a future at United if he's happy to be a squad man for a year or two. He took a lot of stick here, but he actually performed quite well in in the last few matches. Yet he's not an upgrade for Shaw and Wan-Bissaka, nor is ready...
  • Nearly all managers eventually face the gallows, but finishing third when going into the season we would have all been pleased to have finished in the top four -- which we did -- so any talk of sacking Ole right now is pretty ridiculous.
  • Good points. But I still think that because the #7 shirt in particular has such a mystique about it at Old Trafford that giving it Greenwood would add pressure he doesn't need piled on him. We'll see if Sancho does come to OT, but if he does...
  • Admonition well taken, but a stronger adjective than just "good" to described Mason Greenwood is fully warranted. We forum posters can easily carried away, so let's take a look at what someone who knows a thing or two about United attacking...
  • Agreed, but I'm not even sure there are many well developed central defensive midfielders at the age of 21, at least not a top club. Perhaps there are a few.
  • Of course none of us know the boy personally, but I don't think he gives a crap about the #7, and if were pressed on it I doubt he would take it. Give the #7 to Sancho and give Greenwood the #11, if we really need to upgrade him from #26.
  • Hard to disagree with that. It's astonishing that he's only 18 years old and yet plays with such composure, effectiveness and end product. Rashford got the credit for the assist (or do you get credit for a key pass that leads to a pk?) and...
  • I realize Rashy has his haters here, but for me he's been brilliant this season. Sure, the last few matches he's been quite off but surely that all comes down to fitness. A broken back doesn't sound like a minor niggle to me. He may be one who...
  • AWB does look a bit awkward and there's no doubt he's been a bit off the last few games. I hope the coaching staff spend some with him during his rest period he's going to get to talk to him about staying under control and constantly go spider...
  • We can be critical the state of his fitness in the last few matches, but when the man is fully fit he puts in incredible performances. Earlier in the year we were critical of his state of mind, and now his physical fitness. Fair enough. I hope...
  • Despite his injuries this season, I wouldn't give up on Tuanzebe. I'm sold on bringing in a new CB during the transfer window, but let's definitely keep Tuanzebe as one for the squad and push our starting CBs to improve their own game. The...
  • I don’t have a problem with keeping Lingard to come on in garbage time to close out a lead for the win, but he was gash before his personal problems if we’re going to be honest. He had a great 2-3 month run three seasons ago, but he’s just not...
