  1. Diego Maradona has died

    RIP. I remember an article saying that when his funeral procession will take place it will be much bigger than that of Evita Peron. I had also begun to suspect that Pele would outlive him. But that's neither here nor there.
  2. Get behind the manager and club

    I look back hungrily to the immediate post 99 seasons, where the talk was would we clinch the title if we maintained our 7 point lead come Christmas. Now we're rationalizing and finding comfort in only being 5 points off the top. In a way I do want this ideology of supporting the United manager...
  3. Would you sack or keep Ole? (Poll reopened)

    Part of me wants Ole gone. But then the Ole in crowd will feel that the moment of anagnorisis has been prematurely snuffed. Most times I want Ole to stay here 5 more years, just to see many of the faithful either squirm or move the goalposts.
  4. Best player Roy Keane or Graeme Souness?

    Souness was technically better at a time when the pace of the game was slower, with rules that allowed him to get away with horrific tackles. There are at least 10 tackles of Souness from his time at Pool and Rangers that are all more malicious than Keane's tackle on Haaland Sr.
  5. RIP Albert Quixall

    RIP.
  6. Would you sack or keep Ole? (Poll reopened)

    The thing is, the comparison with Everton doesn't compute. Ole already achieved the dizzy heights most teams crave, in his first 10 or so matches. After that there were some stinging results, until we got Fernandes, who began another group of outstanding results. Then came the semifinal defeats...
  7. Is Poch really the answer?

    Sorry about this type.
  8. Is Poch really the answer?

    Poch is not the answer, but I want Oleg one too.
  9. RIP Nobby Stiles

    RIP to Nobby. Death is a great leveler.
  10. Premier League Gameweek 6

    I miss OG.
  11. Bluemoon goes into Meltdown

    Truly. It inspired me to punch my screen.
  12. Ed Woodward 2020/21 | Groundhog Day Edition

    Woodward seems to be perhaps the only person in this league who actually laughed all the way to the bank.
  13. Alex Telles signs for Manchester United

    Telles something we don’t know.
  14. Jadon Sancho| Staying at Dortmund for now

    You may call our bid to prise him from BVB quixotic, but I have a feeling Jadon will soon be Sancho de la Machester soon. Happy Sancho day!
  15. CL Draw (Group H): PSG, Manchester United, RB Leipzig, Istanbul Basaksehir

    It'll be a nice occasion regardless of the results. The other teams will provide a good distraction. Ole as a manager is a Jeckyl and Hyde leader, so anything is possible.
