  1. Grealish To City? | City bid £100M

    I watched pretty much every Vila game he played the last 2 seasons and he is right up there. Not world class yet because he hasn't played at the top level with top players but his level was so far above his team mates it's unreal. His ability to beat a man, play the final pass, finish is right...
  2. Grealish To City? | City bid £100M

    Sucks. The one player I don't want to go to City, I think he'll tear it up and surprise a lot of people. At Villa his final ball has always been good, just the quality hasn't been there around him. The summer we sign Sancho they spend more and get a better player (in my opinion from watching...
  3. Paul Pogba (Out) | Romano - "United confident about keeping Pogba this summer"

    You're the guy who in the Euros thread was saying that the passes Pogba was making were simple passes when he was making some great through balls. You clearly have an agenda against Pogba regardless of how well he plays. You made pretty much the same post yesterday and it's just not true...
  4. Paul Pogba (Out) | Romano - "United confident about keeping Pogba this summer"

    Another big reason is the runs the attackers make. Griezzman, Mbappe, Giroud/Benzema all constantly make runs, which plays into one of Pogba's key strengths of playing super accurate long balls. Especially when asked to play as a deep midfielder, it means he can get rid of the ball quickly...
  5. Diogo Dalot | 2021/22 Performances

    Portugal, Milan, us at times. You don't play almost a 100 games for those 3 by the age of 22 if you're crap. Struggles in defence but can dribble with the ball, occasionally put a decent ball in. In short your typical winger that was at some point made to play as a full back.
  6. Diogo Dalot | 2021/22 Performances

    This forum is way too harsh on pre-season games, I mean come on lads it's a way to get back to fitness. If you ever had a month with little exercise you know how bad your first couple of football games are. He's not excellent but he's not terrible, he's a good young attacking RB.
  7. Minimum Bar for Continuity in Ole's Third Full Season

    We're signing better players for the team but we still won't dominate enough teams in attack to win the league. The league is very likely to go to City again, even more so if they sign either of Grealish or Kane. Sancho and Rashford are good, but are they enough to topple a City team that has...
  8. Andreas Pereira | 2021/22 Performances

    Pre-season player looking better after a couple of games shocker. He's not been great at United but I watched a lot of his matches on loan at La Liga and he played well there, especially against the likes of Barca and Real. He's more talented than the likes of Harry Wilson anyway who's going to...
  9. Which midfielder do you prefer ?

    Why would we want to sign Verrati anyway? He's not really a very good DM, more a box to box that's pushed back. We have enough box to box players, which is why neither Saul nor Neves are great fits either. Our midfield has been lopsided for a good while now and I'm not sure one player really...
  10. Grealish To City? | City bid £100M

    People are deluding themselves if they think he's going to flop at City. I've watched pretty much every Villa game he's played since they got promoted and he's on another planet to his team mates. In terms of raw talent he can get up there with the likes of KDB, he's not there yet but I'd be...
  11. Further signings dependent on sales?

    Most likely based on the reports we've seen - Pogba - £45m to PSG - Lingard - £18m to West Ham - Tuanzebe - £15m to Newcastle ( though should be more given what Chelsea are selling their youngsters for) Comes out to about £75m, so around £40m net spend with the purchases of Varane and Sancho...
  12. Paul Pogba (Out) | Romano - "United confident about keeping Pogba this summer"

    I can see him doing very very well at PSG. Neymar and Mbappe running on to his through balls will be a field day. Compare it to PSG against City when Neymar was having to drop deep into midfield. I want the transfer to happen more for his sake than anything because with Verrati and wjnaldum...

    More VDBs :drool: More Fred and Mctominays :drool:
  14. Paul Pogba (Out) | Romano - "United confident about keeping Pogba this summer"

    Likely one or two people unfolding a banner. The French PSG forum is largely in support of the transfer. They have some of the same reservations United have e.g. his defensive abolity, but personally I think PSG with their two wide attackers is a far better fit for him then at United.
  15. F1 2021 Season

    Only casually following F1 but has the red bull not been faster this season? Especially down the straights. Even if the cars are the same this season your statement is outlandish as it's based off a small sample set of races and because you don't know how a younger Lewis or a more aggressive...
