Abdoulaye Doucouré scores every single week without fail; however, his goal tally at the end of each season is always 2.

Liverpool go 1-0 down in every game they play but go on to win comfortably.

Every year we play the same team back to back within a few days, one in the league cup and one in the league.

We usually lose 1 and win 1.

Since Mark Goldbridge created the United Stand its cursed the club. When he supported Forrest we won major trophies. When he deactivates the Channel we will win the prem

Diogo Jota scores all of his goals from the 80th minute onwards.

Just read that alvaro morata is only 30!
Seems like he should be about 40 we’ve been linked on and off with him for so long……..

There seems to have been a private meeting among the heads of all football media outlets where they've agreed to push women's football on a captive audience, despite the fact that nobody seems to watch it or are able to name more than a few players.

That's a rubbish definition of a captive audience.

As in they're trying to create a captive audience. But also that the average consumer of football news, including myself and every friend I have who follows football, has felt it shoved upon them when going to their previously regular news outlet. There seems to be no demand that justifies the enormous rise in the presence. Todays united matchday thread reflects that.

I do agree that we’re seeing women’s football being given almost a manufactured platform that isn’t proportionate to demand, and it’s definitely deliberate.

They’re trying to grow the sport and let’s face it, it’s hard to do so if nobody is seeking it out. So it comes to you instead. They sort of need to do it this way or it would stay niche forever, hence why every established club like United has its own women’s team, instead of just Manchester ladies FC - it’s the brand recognition they need to get people watching.

If you don’t like it just ignore it, but I do understand why it’s happening. If it gets more girls involved in football it’s a good thing. The subsidisation is the least the men’s game can do really considering the FA banned women from even taking part until what, the 70s?

Whenever one of our games get postponed, when we go on to play that match we don't win and/or put up a dire performance.

When a player pressures an opposition player and raises both arms to clearly indicate to the referee that he isn't fouling, a free kick is always awarded against him.

I have nothing against women's football, but the way Sky Sports organizes scores on their site now is extremely illogical and user-unfriendly. Big pet peeve of mine.
