    Farmer’s league is stretching it but it is utterly predictable. Imagine United based in England’s richest city with no Glazers, no Abramovich or Abu Dhabi and even no Liverpool, and you’ve got the Bundesliga.
  • I don’t think France can win this battle by visibly waiving a big stick. It should publicly adopt a pragmatic approach towards the cartoons (even if it goes against the principle of laïcicité) while devoting all efforts towards targeting the scum...
  • Regarding the new thread title, was he ever really Labour? The party has only been in power for one 13-year spell in Corbyn’s 37 years as an MP, and in that spell he voted against the whip over 400 times. It’s a rather parasitical career...
  • I would be more than happy with a title challenge. My post was more aimed at the views of some on here (although not Ole - I have no idea what he thinks) that top 4/finish within 10-15 points of the leaders is the only target. Given this season...
  • The league this year is in flux. Corona virus diminishes home advantage - although we lose the OT crowd, on balance this should help United as traditionally fans of lesser teams have regarded the visit of United as their cup final, even more so...
  • I think it is accelerating trends that were already prominent (the decline of high street shopping, the switch to working from home, generational inequality) but I don’t see any major new long- term impacts at this stage. After all, given the low...
  • The Courier: a reasonably entertaining Cold War drama set in the lead up to the Cuban missile crisis with a strong performance by Cumberbatch. The framing is more theatrical than cinematic (the director comes from theatre) and, after reading up...

    Let’s see. If we can solve that issue then I don’t see why a title challenge is out of the question, particularly with VVD crocked. We looked genuinely like a top side last night.

    Fully agree and Rio and Fletcher were saying the same thing on BT last night. If Ole can take that step, then fantastic.
  • MoskvaRed replied to the thread Westminster Politics.
    Blair’s biggest (domestic) mistake was not pushing through PR. Presumably he thought his first two big majorities indicated some kind of paradigm shift rather than being an outlier. Under FPTP, the Tories seem impregnable in England. Labour can...
  • Maguire may not even be the best defender in our team to be honest! Of course expenditure does not always equal actual value (and I acknowledge Ole inherited many of these big money buys) but comparing United and Spurs is apples and oranges...
  • I didn’t even mention Poch. I think he’s in the good but not great category. Before dismissing him, though, for not winning trophies at Spurs under Levy, you may want you calculate the amount spent on that United team out there tonight, even...
  • Enjoy the win! I did too believe it or not
  • Stop being facetious - It can also take years on a road to nowhere. Ole has never built a title winning side, or even been competitive, in a league which counts for anything. He’s an unknown quantity, unlike the Fergie and Klopp examples which...
