  1. ETH: "We need new players and quality players. We will try and convince them to join." | Mirror: ETH believes FDJ will join Utd over Chelsea

    So your rating for Ten Hag is a D-? There is not even a ranking low enough to express your complete oblivion to the realities of Ten Hag`s appointment, role and abilities. Two games in of a new manager confronting years of mismanagement at organisational level, poor recruiting, technically...
  2. ETH: "We need new players and quality players. We will try and convince them to join." | Mirror: ETH believes FDJ will join Utd over Chelsea

    The simple truth. Even if they don`t know it, those supporters who are busy making assumptions about Ten Hag and what he can and can`t do need to realise one basic fact - he is not the Manchester United structure and doesn`t make unilateral decisions. He has been given enough freedom to deal...
  3. ETH: "We need new players and quality players. We will try and convince them to join." | Mirror: ETH believes FDJ will join Utd over Chelsea

    Interesting to see all the irrationality/borderline hysterics coming from some posters on the caf regarding Ten Hag. Those of you suggesting or saying he should go/he`s over already/he shouldn`t have given players a clean slate/he shouldn`t publicly put trust in players/shouldn`t say anything in...
  4. What decisions has Ten Hag got right since joining?

    Oh please, saying `Ten hag is massively out of his depth` is plain silly but if you substitute his name with that of some of the players then you will begin to talk sense. The most pressing issue is that Ten Hag needs to re-make Manchester United`s playing style in his image - it has to be his...
  5. Time to abandon "progressive" football...until we fix the foundations

    I`m no fan of the Glasers and I agree with Rio calling for them to actually physically be in Manchester and take some responsibility. However, much as their ownership is a problem, people like Gary Neville doing the same and focusing on the Glasers instead of the actual on- pitch performance of...
  6. Rashford considering his future...

    Louis Saha`s post points to both the problem and the solution. Marcus is not `only a squad player` as some posters think - he is a genuine talent, he`s one of United`s own and his problem has seemed to some of us as over-thinking his playing and his role in a United team that has lost its way...
  7. Thank you Jesse

    I`ll happily second the title and first post of this thread. Jesse Lingard has been proud to play for Manchester United, he came through the ranks, he scored some cracking and vital goals including in cup finals and he wanted nothing more than to be part of a productive United squad and win with...
  8. Rashford considering his future...

    David Beckham did get carried away off the pitch when he started to appear everywhere in non sporting mags and his relationship with Victoria was continually and annoyingly plastered everywhere courtesy of his and hers PR. They both didn`t realise that you can`t summon the media and use the...
  9. The breaking of Manchester United

    And that`s where Moyes` keenness to `prove` he was his own man was his own undoing along with other actions. He turfed Phelan out - the man who knew the club inside out and had the respect of the players. Phelan knew about man management just like Sir Alex and would have been a very useful ally...
  10. The breaking of Manchester United

    Oh that`s right, it was the English First Division then later became the Premiership before Premier League. I know Dave Sexton who came after Tommy Docherty was the subject of complaints that he wasn`t a good communicator and the players didn`t really know what he wanted them to do but didn`t he...
  11. The breaking of Manchester United

    Damn, when did that happen? I feel for Ole and was with him until that dreadful final when players were run ragged while others were kept on the bench when suitable subtitutions and tactical changes could have been made. He had also made those mistakes in some other games but that final...
  12. The breaking of Manchester United

    You do go back! What was it really like to witness the decline of United into a relegated team? I`m guessing that back then the Premiership was such a different entity that while United`s fall was a bad time it wasn`t seen as the end of the world the way things go now in the ballooned mega...
  13. Merci Paul

    Paul Pogba is a classic case of could have been, should have been at Manchester United. His return was not the best timing for him and his toxic agent although RIP did not help Paul`s case later. Paul was not a good fit for the post-Sir Alex instability but he certainly deserves some respect...
  14. Juan Mata officially leaves Manchester United

    Goodbye Juan Mata, we were lucky to have such a professional and decent man during a time of instability. A man who was a quiet rock of professionalism and who should have been played in his natural position. Godspeed.
  15. The breaking of Manchester United

    Can you imagine the likes of so many of those posters on here witnessing United`s freefall after Sir Matt retired or the instability under Tommy Docherty and Big Ron? They would be even more hysterical than now. As for the first years under the then Alex Ferguson, some of these posters would...
