A Alien invasion.

Not sure about that.

But. Should he get one, only a devil style goatee + 'stache would do. Something like this, including the sideburns:

Which would expand the alternative insight I provided previously in this thread, about Rojo at United:
I love our crazy argie.

Also hilarious that his full name is actually Faustino Marcos Alberto Rojo, considering the connotations of the bolded name in particular, along with the context of playing for the red devils, whilst his surname translates directly to red in Spanish and his playing style is outrageous and mad. Nothing new, but all the pieces fit together makes it quite funny.

The erudite Faust is highly successful yet dissatisfied with his life, which leads him to make a pact with the Devil, exchanging his soul for unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures. The Faust legend has been the basis for many literary, artistic, cinematic, and musical works that have reinterpreted it through the ages. "Faust" and the adjective "Faustian" imply a situation in which an ambitious person surrenders moral integrity in order to achieve power and success for a delimited term.
For those confused about what I'm referring to, it's the story of Faust: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faust



Sounds like our boy Marcos.

Let us wait and see.

I think Rojo and Williams would make a hot headed combo on the left side of the defence. :)

Combined with Lindelof's poor form he's earned a start in the next PL game for me.
I tend to agree, but he is still very suspect defensively against better teams. He has had good performances when the team has been on form so maybe you are right, if it works it can be solid as his attributes certainly make for a rougher CB than Lindelof. At the moment, I think I prefer Lindelof, while he is very uninspiring you can count on him doing ok, his consistency is good it's just not a very high level at anything but he does a job. You put Rojo in there, I feel anything can happen, certainly is more risky. But sure, lets try again with him.

Rojo is definitely a bit bonkers yet despite the fact we've tried to sell him 3 or 4 times he still always gives it his all when he plays, and I feel he compliments Maguire more than Lindelof does, and as you say adds that rougher edge to us in defense, the flipside is his discipline is not great and he's a potential red card every time out. Long term I fully believe Axel will be Maguire's partner, but while he's out I'd take the risk and give Rojo the spot.

According to the MEN, he has pulled out of the Argentina squad and stayed in Manchester for treatment this week.

Hasn't gone to Dubai either with the others not involved in internationals.

I might be wrong, but even with our shite ability to avoid or to manage injuries, is this an absolute record seeing he was on the pitch for just a couple of minutes of Added Time yesterday ??

Love the crazy fecker. He's another one of those players who was finding themselves under Ole before he got injured. I think if we persevered with him and gave him a run of games like we did with Fred, he'd do alright.

I also think that next to Wan-Bissaka, Bailly would be pretty cool too.

What you guys think of Rojo and Maguire combo?
Yup, good idea to me. Wanted to see this for a while. Not 100% taken on Lindelof as I don't know of many defenders who won't head the ball. Rojo has been an unsung hero for me.

He is very entertaining too. With a calming influence like Maguire he would probably do well. I like the fact he is fairly quick and not afraid to put his body on the line. He is a good header too and likes to join the attack. He is always dangerous on corners too.
