  1. Ronaldo doesn’t press and positions himself wrong to open up the midfield

    Also, the idea that we’ve suddenly decided to become a pressing team, after 3 years! because pundits and the like have decided that’s what the issue is all of a sudden, is an absolute fecking joke … of course we aren’t good at it, we literally seem to have implemented it this week! :lol...
  2. Ronaldo doesn’t press and positions himself wrong to open up the midfield

    Exactly. It’s even part of the reason it’s intermittently been so “entertaining”
  3. Ronaldo doesn’t press and positions himself wrong to open up the midfield

    We conceded 4 against Liverpool in the same fixture last season (which everyone seems to have forgotten about) with Cavani playing up top and Maguire injured… We also nearly shipped about 7 against Roma away around the same time, also with Cavani playing & “pressing” like mad from the front so...
  4. We are an awfully coached team

    Almost all our issues this season were present and obvious last season too, they’ve just become exacerbated by the bad form of important players… it’s not like we didn’t also look like we could’ve shipped 7 goals away to Roma last season with Cavani, Fred and Bruno all on the pitch “working...
  5. Leakiest defence in history?

    I mean, the Roma away tie last year was also a game where we could very easily have shipped 6 or 7 goals, and Cavani played in that, so I’m at a bit of a loss as to why everyone’s decided Cavani for Ronaldo is the magic fix this week… We conceded 4 against Liverpool in this same fixture in May...
  6. Ole stays what does he need to do?

    It’s gonna be so fecking funny when he plays basically the same team against Spurs.
  7. Solskjaers Legacy

    Oh I agree. Ole hasn’t been a remote success unless you drastically lower your expectations for him, and him alone (which many have been willing to do) but if the next guy comes in and wins instantly - which he should do if Ole’s built such a great platform after 3 years - then we’ll at least be...
  8. Solskjaers Legacy

    It all depends on the next man
  9. Cristiano Ronaldo | 2021/22 Performances

    It used to be all Pogba’s fault too, until we took him out of the team and we’re just as shit… if not shitter.
  10. Ole Gunnar Solskjær | 2021/22 Discussion

    I find it weird that a lot of the people insisting that Ole has done a great job ‘till now and would leave the club in a really good place, are often the same people who regularly say shit like “who else is gonna come in and do better, exactly” or fervently argue against X or Y as not the right...
  11. Worst Performances In Premier League History

    The City & Spurs games also at least had a mitigating sending off at 2-1…. Our sending off today was at 5-0.
  12. Zinedine Zidane - 3 time CL winning manager without a job

    I’m not entirely sold on Zidane, but the position we’ve put ourselves in by sticking with Ole for slightly too long (which was always going to be the biggest side affect of hiring him in the first place) means that we can’t exactly hire the kind of tactically astute stylistic young manager we...
  13. We are an awfully coached team

    So, let’s just go over what’s happened then. After an embarrassing loss to Leicester where “things might have to change” we responded by… dropping one player… then went 0-2 at home in the first half of our next game and had to bring all our forwards on to rescue the points against the 3rd best...
  14. Alec Baldwin fatally shoots woman with prop gun on movie set

    I remember finding it really sad that when Michael Massee died a couple years back every article about it referred to him almost exclusively as “the guy who shot Brandon Lee”… and by all accounts he never really got over it, both personally and career-wise, even though he was probably one of the...
