  1. Brandon Williams | 2019/20 Performances

    I completely agree with this. It was the same in the Norwich cup tie. Normally these players would be making their first appearances after three months with no games in 5-0 pre-season wins over Burton Albion and what have you, where being off it doesn't matter. Bit different being dropped in it...
  2. David de Gea | 2019/20 Performances

    It's easy to forget in the face of the errors of the last couple of seasons just how many times this guy has bailed us out. Far more than the amount of errors he's made. But something is seriously wrong. I keep reading on here it's decline. It's not decline. He's 29. A 39 year-old keeper who...
  3. Watchalongs - The new phenomenon. Why??

    I recorded the second half of the Arsenal game last night and found I'd somehow recorded a 'watchalong' instead of the normal transmission. I didn't know it was even a thing. I'd never even heard of one of the guests, no idea if he was a celebrity of some sort or just some random. The two...
  4. Nathan Ake (Close to signing for Man City, £40m fee)

    Is Ake really that good? I honestly don't pay close enough attention to know his game in great detail. Unless he's clearly better than Lindelof then I don't see the point. Last thing we want is another option who is merely 'decent'.
  5. Angel Gomes (United confirm departure)

    I just can't bring myself to care. He was massively hyped on here on the basis of a couple of pre-season friendlies, but even Lingard and Pereira have a record of excelling in those. Showed so little in the appearances he did make. We have a manager who undoubtedly gives chances to youth, yet...
  6. Ole Gunnar Solskjær | 2019/20 Discussion

    Rotating the squad was the right thing to do, even if it did provide a duff performance. It's hardly surprising it turned out that way though. This is the same as starting a new season and these first couple of games are the equivalent of pre-sesaon friendlies in terms of fitness. Except instead...
  7. Ole Gunnar Solskjær | 2019/20 Discussion

    Don't forget how if we win it's in spite of the manager who should receive none of the credit whatsoever, but if we don't then it's entirely the manager's fault and he should receive 100% of the blame.
  8. Aubameyang horrific tackle

    "You've been maimed"
  9. Disrespectful and Selfish (updated: Oops)

    Pathetic thread that typifies a certain type of poster on here unfortunately. It's great to see the kids getting a chance, both today and this season. Sick of people desperately trying to manufacture outrage in order to find another stick to beat the manager with
  10. Racism at Old Trafford

    I was a match going fan from 1978 to 2018 and in the 70/80s the racism was terrible, but it was considered 'normal' then (for want of a better term) and a reflection of society as a whole. In modern times I never heard any individual racist comments at all. There was that minging Adebyaor chant...
  11. Congratulations Liverpool - Premier League Winners 2019/20

    He's got a point. Liverpool were fortunate to have their period of dominance in an era where English clubs won the European Cup almost every season. Nottingham Forest won it, and then retained it. Aston Villa won it. Whoever won the English title won the European Cup too. English clubs won it...
  12. UEFA Supercup Final 14.08.19. Hosted somewhere in Europe (probably)

    Same! And Lazio in 1999. The treble team had no business losing to bloody Lazio. The one time we did win it, in 1991, we got absolutely battered but fluked it 1-0 :D
  13. What's your lowest point as a supporter since 2013?

    Being absolutely slaughtered 0-3 at home to Liverpool, the only saving grace being when Slippy G missed his penalty and failed to score a hat-trick. Closely followed by the city game immediately after. I remember leaving the house for that game thinking there wasn't even a 1% chance of us...
  14. Paul Ince's open letter to Ed Woodward

    An open letter to Paul Ince: Will you just feck off?
  15. Curious Case of Coutinho...

    For me, he's the ultimate highlights reel player. Goes on a purple patch for a few weeks and scores some stunners, then vanishes for a similar length of time. Either on fire or invisible. Never had a consistently great season when he was in English football. If he played to his maximum all the...
