Gaz. Is a Mewling Quim.
read some history, I'm sure you'll be able to prove he started world war one. Ever thought he had permission to be with family?
Didn’t realise he was a Bosnian Serb, fascinating stuff world war ones start, genuinely think it could make a brilliant black comedy movie.

Not sure a certain someone has it within themselves to look at as big a picture as the assassins did, though. I mean sure they didn’t predict what actually happened but I respect what they were thinking, I mean they only wanted freedom.

A bunch of mind-warped extremists who'd persuaded themselves their holy aims justified any means. Not really very different from the IRA or Al Qaeda. "Respect" isn't a word I'd reach for here.

Im watching the same game. He did nothing of note.
Thanks to @In Rainbows, here's a clip of all his actions in the game (love these full compilations as they show the good and the bad). I thought while he wasn't dribbling the whole field in U23 Hannibal style, apart from that loss of concentration receiving the ball at the halfway line, he was actually very good.

Never wasted a ball, almost always progressed it up field, always looked for the ball, and got away from trouble without breaking sweat bar that one time. It was a much better performance than all the times he's been played as a false 9 this pre-season. I frankly think he's wasted there (at this stage of his career).

They probably have watched him more than just this one preseason game, maybe?
this being his only pre season game for Manchester United first team? if the basis that he is ready for our first team because he played well for Nottingham forest in the championship being the other games then I still feel like my comment applies. He hasn’t done anything to justify the certainty that he is ready for our first team.

Can we update the proper Match Day thread now? We have an official match in a few days.

Wouldn’t blame Ten Hag for dropping them all. A big priority for him has to be to instil disciple in the squad and consequently sidelining those who won’t comply.

Bear in mind some were in the stands rather than in the squad. It’s just Ronaldo that’s the issue because I’ve never seen a subbed off player go home rather than take their place on the bench… unless injured.

unless he had been given permission. people here assuming the worst. that might be the case, but it might not. As usual, people make their minds up with no proof but think if they say it loudly enough and often enough that it will become fact

ETH has already been interviewed calling it unacceptable.
