  1. Villarreal - Manchester United | EL Final Build-up Thread

    The sense of dread going into cup final possibly without Harry is understandable, but I don’t see in Villarreal a side that can cope at all with Cavani, Rashford, Greenwood and Fernandes leading the attack.
  2. Luke Shaw | 2020/21 Performances

    It happens to all top footballers from time to time.
  3. Scott McTominay | 2020/21 Performances

    We both jest. What a crying shame Fellaini became our first marquee signing post Ferguson, Moyes’s testament to his lack of imagination. Fellaini did have a battering ram quality but was completely unsuited to a side with aspirations of playing elite football. McTominay is very limited in his...
  4. Scott McTominay | 2020/21 Performances

    If Scott can develop a ferocious header on set pieces, he could make himself undroppable.
  5. Ole Gunnar Solskjær | 2020/21 Discussion

    Let's put it this way: would anyone here rather have Moyes, Van Gaal or Mourinho managing us right now instead of Solksjaer? God I hope there isn't a single poster on the caf who would say yes.
  6. Fred | 2020/21 Performances

    Fred is a perfectly reasonable squad man for a club trying to climb from top four to title contender, but we definitely need to upgrade on Fred and bring him on when other midfielders are out injured or need rest.
  7. Eric Bailly | 2020/21 Performances

    Never a pen. There's plenty to flog Bailly with without having to make shit up.
  8. Dean Henderson | 2020/21 Performances

    The simple answer is to keep De Gea as the undisputed #1 and Henderson as the backup. If after next season this is not acceptable to Henderson he can go to a club like West Ham or some other upper half PL club and have a perfectly respectable career. But if De Gea demands to leave -- and by...
  9. Dean Henderson | 2020/21 Performances

    Dean is a very decent keeper, but De Gea is clearly superior. We may need to take a step backward with the keeper position in the short run in order to reap gains in the long run, but I do hope caftards are prepared to accept that we'll be downshifting at keeper for a season or two if we...
  10. Scott McTominay | 2020/21 Performances

    McTominay has definitely had a forgettable run of performances since the Leeds match. I like him as a squad player for us but this is an area where an upgrade is needed.
  11. Manchester United vs Liverpool

    Shooting fish in a barrel.
  12. Manchester United vs Liverpool

    Save the seat and tear on your typing fingers. De Gea haters are crawling all over the caf.
  13. Manchester United vs Liverpool

    But we’re down at HT, which is a terrifying prospect for the opponent.
  14. Manchester United vs Liverpool

    Questions must be asked about Pogba’s defending.
  15. Manchester United vs Liverpool

    Lee Dixon says he grew up in Manchester but he doesn’t sound like a manc.
