  1. Solskjaer, Arteta, Lampard and the 'Manager in/Manager out' culture

    That is just pure bs, i don't know where you are getting this alternate history from but it definitely did not happen in the real world. Klopp in his first full season got liverpool into the top 4 on matchday 5, from that point onwards to end of the season liverpool spent all but 1 week in top...
  2. Solskjaer, Arteta, Lampard and the 'Manager in/Manager out' culture

    As another posted already pointed out, you were in top 4 the entire season, needing the final game was down to other teams below you not giving up. When you confirm the top 4 spot has little bearing on whether a manager's job is under threat during the season if the team spends most of the...
  3. Solskjaer, Arteta, Lampard and the 'Manager in/Manager out' culture

    I don't see what is so surprising about it, this is how most target oriented jobs work. We can debate whether the targets set are realistic or not but there shouldn't be you have to give them time bs about achieving what is the bare minimum expected out of you. Look at Solskjaer, he was very...
  4. Teden Mengi Attitude on Hugging/Laughing with Opposition is a breath of fresh air

    But he posted the picture 2 weeks after the game, no one should have an issue over a pre game photo uploaded 2 weeks after the result or is everyone suppose to wallow in defeat for years to come or may be he should show his winning mentality by doing what mengi did and try to shift blame from...
  5. Teden Mengi Attitude on Hugging/Laughing with Opposition is a breath of fresh air

    Like mengi, you mean you want more players who crap the bed in the actual match and then blame the result on others for innocuous things over social media, not even doing it face to face. Pretty sure neither mctominay nor rashford are like that, bruno had a bust up with lindelof on field but...
  6. Teden Mengi Attitude on Hugging/Laughing with Opposition is a breath of fresh air

    Again how is winning mentality mutually exclusive from being friendly with your opponent before the game. Plenty of city and liverpool players share a laugh and a hug pre/post game with their opponents. Seems to not affect them from winning what's so special about utd ones that unless they...
  7. Teden Mengi Attitude on Hugging/Laughing with Opposition is a breath of fresh air

    This is the whole problem for me, you will find a lot of people who fit exactly what you are describing as questionable, and that is how it works in most sectors. No one sets out to make friends with people in adversarial position, but you do friends who can be perceived to be our adversaries...
  8. Teden Mengi Attitude on Hugging/Laughing with Opposition is a breath of fresh air

    The best teams have the best players along with a great coaching staff and a professional and efficient organization that knows what it is doing backing the players and the coach. Bruno is a refreshing presence because he is so good at actually kicking the ball bit, mengi seems to be an...
  9. Teden Mengi Attitude on Hugging/Laughing with Opposition is a breath of fresh air

    why can they not be friends or share a hug/laugh after the game? Football fans rather all sports fans seem to have some really bizarre expectations of sportsmen they support. They are not medeival era gladiators. They are just really well paid employees who get to kick a ball for living. It...
  10. Is Lingard as good as gone? | Contract extended by one year

    Found lingard's redcafe account.
  11. Martin Tyler

    Was it beglin and champion or was there a 3rd set of commentators wetting themselves because of leeds? For all criticism of Martin Tyler, he had nothing on Jim Beglin and Champion. The 4-4 and 3-3 comments were annoying but the cherry i thought was one of them wondering if bruno would be good...
  12. Ole Gunnar Solskjær | 2020/21 Discussion

    Isn't that the big reason why many are criticizing him?
  13. Maybe Lindelof isn’t the problem...

    Most teams that want to set their stall on attack play a high line, leicester until recently played deeper because they played counter attacking football. Maguire's signing makes less and less sense with every passing day.
  14. Maybe Lindelof isn’t the problem...

    What a load of bs? Have you ever watched him or are you just picking random quotes from the performance thread and combining it. He is pretty quick, it would take someone like a rashford to outpace him and even then it would be close. He is the only defender we have who even remotely...
  15. Anthony Martial | 2020/21 Performances

    Its not about the sample size its about basic english, you have an agenda and wanted to paint a picture that fit your agenda and when called out on the bs you are trying to hide behind oh i didn't mean exactly what i said i meant a completely different thing. You bring in nistelroy, van persie...
