  1. Lisandro Martínez | 2022/23 Performances

    Martinez was brought off because he was being targeted by the opposition during their attacks, which ETH realized was going against him. In terms of his defensive capabilities, he is very good but there is nothing much he can do with physically bullying. Martinez should have played as a DM in...
  2. The constant leaks to the media

    I dont think is a leak. It could be the media had someone to look at Carrington the day after and they hit the jackpot. Anyway it is very tough to get rid of the media, they are like pests who will always swarm around us every time we have a defeat. Even if they don't get information, they will...
  3. Erik ten Hag - Manchester United manager

    Its really destroying the forum sentiment. There are a lot of posters who don't post because of these "fans".
  4. Erik ten Hag - Manchester United manager

    Don't read any of the media articles after we lose. They revel in spreading such articles every time we have a defeat as they know that the general online fan sentiment is negative. Its quite clear from the press conferences that they rarely get anything right.
  5. Erik ten Hag - Manchester United manager

    Next game, ETH needs to change his formation. The 4-1-2-3 works very well if you have excellent CMs and DMs but with our attack heavy midfield (with Matic gone, we don't have any DM to play and we only have 1 CM in McTominay) its a recipe for disaster. Against a Liverpool side boasting a...
  6. It’s the players, not the manager

    As expected, all the media articles are out in full force after we have a defeat. It was the same style of articles during Ole's and Mourinho's time. Anybody who is willing to believe these articles needs to understand that the media thrive on what sells, not the facts. The issue against...
  7. Frenkie de Jong | 4th lever pulled | Barca still short.. | next lever selling fan base off?

    In business transactions, all quotations and offers have a validity period which is normally 30 to 60 days and beyond. Not sure what is the validity period that the club agreed upon.
  8. Does our form/mess affecting your desire to watch football?

    Anybody who says they don't want to watch the club's games because of the form we are in, cannot call themselves fans. I have watched this club across all managers and regardless of our form, I have always watched. Its called hoping that the club turns around and gives a performance. Those who...
  9. Ballon d'Or 2022 Nominees | Ronaldo nominated, no Messi

    It's about the end product for his position, which is goals. For wingers and attacking midfielders it would be their assists, key passes, key dribbles and goals. In that sense all the players who have been nominated have certainly delivered in terms of expectations.
  10. Brentford vs Manchester United

    They did not have a stinker. No defence, even with the best defenders in the world, can withstand a attack if the midfield is completely overwhelmed. That is what happened with the 2 goals. Basically the defence did not have enough time to reoganize to stop the attack.
  11. Brentford vs Manchester United

    The ones that like to whinge, will whinge even if we have a 3-0 win today. They will purposely focus on negative parts of the game and say that we are bound to be found out against Liverpool and that Brentford did not press us as well as Brighton etc. Unfortunately we have too many of them here.
  12. Ten Hag press conference - Brentford away

    It looks like he is trying to analyze what could be the real intention behind the question, so he says 'yes' like he is thinking about something. The club is certainly backing him and supporting him in terms of transfers. Its the press that have no idea what is happening, so they use the fans...
  13. Brentford vs Manchester United

    I think it depends on how the coaches have analyzed Brentford's pressing approach and their midfield shape. Eriksen is very good when he has space but against a midfield that doesn't give you spaces, you will need more aggression. One possibility is that ETH might use Eriksen as a regista with...
  14. Brentford vs Manchester United

    You are not daft. Its called being a supporter. We always must have optimism even if we have to play the entire academy due to a catastrophic injury crisis. I was actually quite excited when we had the massive injury crisis in 2015/16 season resulting in LVG playing many youngsters against...
  15. Ballon d'Or 2022 Nominees | Ronaldo nominated, no Messi

    He did well in the Eredivisie. I would say that they have gone for players who have been consistent in their performances at their positions.
