  1. Unpopular opinion: Ronaldo will be a huge miss

    He’s purely a goal scorer now. His predatory instincts and finishing is generally quite exceptional. He manages himself very well and you can see he’s perfected the art of choosing his moments to exert himself during a game to conserve his fitness. However, that obviously comes at the expense of...
  2. The positive thread

    Rashford does my head in most of the time but I do enjoy watching him all the same. He's fantastic when he's on song. I'm glad he's back.
  3. How will Solskjær line up against Liverpool?

    With the quality in the squad now, it’s difficult to create that siege mentality we’ve relied on the in the past to bounce back from bad results. We don’t look to have the same sense of squad unity now, either.
  4. How will Solskjær line up against Liverpool?

    It’s shock and awe tactics
  5. How will Solskjær line up against Liverpool?

    This. I don’t think we’ll get a result, though. The mounting pressure feels a bit different this time round to previous.
  6. Paul Scholes: Give Ole Until The End Of The Season

    Some people would rather pay attention to Danny Blind in his role as head of the Donny appreciation society.
  7. Is Jose Mourinho still our best manager post Fergie?

    I don’t know where this “limited squad” myth has come from. He spent over £400m and that’s not even including Zlatan or Sanchez. If the squad was limited, it’s because he was incredibly shit with the money he spent. And based on that I don’t know how anyone can determine his tenure to be...
  8. Ole's man-management and playing his favorites

    Just a matter of time until we see a thread about Ole’s winner in 99 not actually being his.
  9. Ole: “maybe something has to give”

    I don’t think Bruno and Pogba have ever worked particularly well in the same lineup, and adding Ronaldo into that mix has made things even worse. Basically, we have 3 star players who don’t work very well together. Someone needs to be dropped, that’s what I believe he means.
  10. Our transfer strategy under ole looks as directionless as it did under the previous manager

    I don’t really understand how people can say this team is strong enough to be challenging for the league against City, Liverpool, and Chelsea, and yet claim our transfer strategy has been “directionless”. Ole has built a predominantly youthful team capable of challenging for the league, I don’t...
  11. Facebook, Amazon etc....

    I try to avoid Amazon as much as possible. Evil company bent on taking over the world, the same goes for all the tech giants. Governments are seemingly letting the opportunity to bring them down a peg or two go by.
  12. Ole Gunnar Solskjær | 2021/22 Discussion

    It’s possible to not be happy with our start to the season while still acknowledging that the Mourinhoball era truly was a steaming pile of dogshit.
  13. Ole Gunnar Solskjær | 2021/22 Discussion

    Nice backtracking. Your comment was suggestive that our football now is worse than Mourinho’s. Short memories.
  14. Ole Gunnar Solskjær | 2021/22 Discussion

    Did you watch Mourinho’s last 4 matches?
  15. Who you rate the highest Pep, Klopp or Tuchel?

    The point stands that he hasn't had a particularly challenging managerial position thus far, and probably never will.
