  1. The negativity is unreal | Nevermind

    I think your view was certainly true in the immediate aftermath of Oles appointment. Now though? Not so sure.
  2. The negativity is unreal | Nevermind

    I think a lot of views on Ole are based on him being who he is . Basically 20 Ole Legend. When he came in the whole feeling around the club changed post SAF. It was needed. After the war there was a famous comment of "people have never had it so good". It was true but it was just after a...
  3. How do we balance this Man Utd-team?

    Part of the unvalance is created by the players we have. Pogba Ronaldo and Bruno should be in seperate teams. I think Bruno specifically unbalances the team, however is a fantastic individual. If you watch him for Portugal you can see he is not the same player as he has a defined role. For...
  4. Television Unfunny comedians

    I'm a big stand up comedy fan. Will give anyone a go, in terms of watching/listening. It is all about personal taste. Never got the fuss about likes of Carlin and even hicks. They were decent enough but Carlin specifically became way too preachy. I want a laugh not a lecture. Maybe it's...
  5. Is Jose Mourinho still our best manager post Fergie?

    Not convinced personally. Ole is a legend and things get overlooked. His personality currently is one of cluelessness. There has been criticism of his pre and post match interviews. Also his personality pitch side, the most recent being smiling at Everton. The future of the team was...
  6. Is Jose Mourinho still our best manager post Fergie?

    I think eventually most of our managers have "sabotaged" the team post SAF. Ole not so much until his last interview after the game. Ultimately managers are easily replaced compared to players. However the issues with LVG and Jose almost all came to pass and Oke seems to be heading in the...
  7. Is Jose Mourinho still our best manager post Fergie?

    Your point on Zlatan is on point. Something I've said often. I recall the zlatan and Henry interview and Pogba showing up. Zlatans exchanges with Pogba were funny but also showed, to me, that Pogba was almost intimidated by Zlatan and kept in check
  8. Is Jose Mourinho still our best manager post Fergie?

    I was against having Jose as a manager and was happy enough to see him go. But that was more about the man and his days at Chelsea etc. That said I think a lot of what he was whinging and moaning about in his "toxic season" has come to pass. I wanted Pogba as a player and Martial was also a...
  9. Would you take Conte at United?

    I wasn't doing a like for like comparison man. Yeah those players were in the books but they got extentions under Ole, in the case of matic in a key position which we haven't addressed for ages. I specified the similarities, based on earlier comments. So the "struggles in the CL" well so did...
  10. Would you take Conte at United?

    Are we being a little unfair on Conte? I don't necessarily disagree with how he is viewed but isn't it about the job description? If you're appointed a manager with a remit of success now then surely you would maybe focus on aging established players to get quick wins? With regard to his...
  11. Afghanistan

    Yeah I agree that interpretation/implementation is a massive issue in some places. Not to excuse the oppression in any way my point was to highlight that it's done under a banner, or Islam in this case, when it actually goes against the rulings. I also don't disagree with you with regards to...
  12. Afghanistan

    I think the notion of women not working generally is not correct. Simply because life is different and often hard in places like Afghanistan and if you are a farmer then it's a unified effort to grow crops, bring up a family and sell the products. Under the different conflicts in Afghanistan...
  13. Afghanistan

    My grandmother didn't marry into extreme wealth. Basically grandad became wealthy whilst married to her. I was trying to highlight that formal education wasn't a priority and they still made it. I think the focus on formal education is overplayed. To be fair you do kind of acknowledge that...
  14. Afghanistan

    See this annoys me. Not you personally here. What standards do we set on "education"? And whose standards. Education in and of itself is not about literacy per SE. Even here I think if you can show your kids are getting an education you can exclude from school and go live in the woods. My...
  15. Afghanistan

    For me it is some folk rather than all non Muslims, and it particularly focuses on Muslims. So for example some of the Jewish areas in Britain have certain Jewish communities who have certain rules that don't get picked up on much. This includes certain times when women and men can't walk on...
