MadDogg's latest activity

  • He's probably been our most consistent player since the start of last season. He's barely had any bad games since then.
  • I thought it was a dog on first viewing. Had to go back and watch it after reading your post. :lol:
  • It's not about what's best for the clubs. It's what's best for the players. They are the ones going out there picking up a significantly higher amount of injuries. They are the ones out there putting their bodies on the line. They are the ones...
  • We only really dropped those points in the first half of last season, so there's already a fair indication that he has improved that aspect massively. He saw what we needed (a proper #10) and went and got him. Indeed, Ole wanted Bruno before the...
  • There's nothing in there that's inherently wrong. The question ultimately becomes how long are we going to try to do it with our own in-house options and how many chances will we give them, rather than bring in somebody who has experience at...
  • MadDogg replied to the thread Van der Sar turns 50.
    I wonder how much longer he could have kept going if he'd wanted to? The strange thing is that his very last season at 40 years old was probably his best, and also probably the only season that he was the best goalkeeper in the world. Incredible...
  • Not when he plays in the deeper role, but when he plays in front of another two he has often had great output.
  • As long as he stays away from injury I'd be quite disappointed and surprised if he doesn't overtake Rooney's record. The big question might be whether Greenwood beats him there.
  • Really, we dropped all those points in the first half of last season. Since then we have Pogba fit, Bruno signed and Greenwood coming to the fore. Now we've also signed Cavani, VDB and Telles. All our young players (the youngest team in the...
  • MadDogg replied to the thread Fred | 2020/21 Performances.
    That's strange since they don't normally play together. Ole has generally used Fred as Pogba's cover, not his partner. They only started three games together last season (all in cup games) and this was the first match they've started together...
  • If he can get in the positions to score 7-8 scrappy goals over the course of a season on top of the finesse goals he scores, that's an extra 7-8 goals a season he scores. Ultimately it doesn't matter how you score them, they all count the same so...
  • He's been a bit off-form ever since lockdown. The first few games this season especially but it's only fair to give him the benefit of the doubt with the lack of preseason and whatnot, but ever since lockdown he hasn't been as good at completely...
  • Pogba often tends to be better defensively when pressing people in front of him. It's once they get in behind him he just gets lazy. It's actually something a lot of more attacking players do. The likes of Sanchez, KDB, Aguero, etc are all good...
  • MadDogg replied to the thread Fred | 2020/21 Performances.
    I know Herrera said at some stage that the manager (I think it was LVG but it may have been Mourinho) told him to go for all-or-nothing shots sometimes when he was in those positions because if the opposition won the ball back they'd be able to...
  • Way too early for this thread. :nervous:
