The decline of Manchester United is simultaneous and intertwined with the decline of Sebastian Vettel.

Since 2014, there have been brief moments of hope and happiness that are then squashed with disappointment the following weekend.

Lionel Messi seems to always be surrounded by great attackers in his team.

Despite a lot of hype, Dybala seems to have achieved relatively little in his career.

Every player that wants to join Barcelona will stay AWOL from training / games before the transfer.

James Milner has never had an exceptionally great game. He has never had a poor one either.

Also have a weird feeling Milner keeps a tractor in his garage and rides it during his off seasons.

Danny Rose has been on the verge of leaving tottenham for about 15 years.

Everyone who plays in Italy is old.

Ryan Babel has played for Holland in every World Cup since the 1994 World Cup to date and will play in the next two as well despite achieving nothing in every tournament. The only thing that changes about him is the color of the dye on his head.

he's literally only made the squad for a single world cup and in that didn't even play one minute?

The Netherlands either don't qualify for a tournament at all or reach (at least) the semi-finals.

Netherlands and Belgium can never be good at football at the same time.

The 0-0 at France 98 was the only time the Netherlands and Belgium ever played one another.

The Dutch produce the most thrilling players and the most uninspiring managers.

Norwich and Watford are like those identical twins at school who used to swap classes to mess with the teachers.
Constantly yo-yoing between the PL and Championship.
They could swap their stadium, manager and entire squad and nobody would catch on. Nor would they care.

We never scored from a corner after Fergie's retirement.

Shakhtar Donetsk are always made up of just Ukrainians and Brazilians.

All of FC Porto's south American signings turn out great.

Portugal never had a good striker from when eusebio played for them, up until ronaldo started playing in that role for them.

This also works for Stoke and West Brom and all North West teams outside of the four big clubs.

No South American player has ever played consistently well over their United career.

All the best defenders in history were Italian, until about 2008, when the game suddenly got cleaner and quicker.

Whilst no Italian centre forward has been even remotely decent since Vieri.

For 40 years every Brazil team has been slated for not having the "Magic" of usual Brazil teams. Even though by very definition, the "Non magic" ones would therefore be way more usual than the magic ones.

Every player from the former Yugoslavia in the 1980-90s was an elegant playmaker.

Whenever a transfer target starts following United players on social media or likes an United player's post, the target is guaranteed to not join us.

Yet every World Cup they are massively overhyped and named one of the favourites, looking unimpressive as they plod through the early rounds. Nevertheless, all the pundits are hugely shocked when the first decent European side they play comfortably swats them aside in the knockouts.

Admittedly, this isn’t a “weird feeling”, just the reality of Brazil post 2002 (and most of 1974-1990).

That's because they are one of the strongest teams. To not have them as favorites is stupid, yes their last win was 2002 but they won many confederations cups and copa americas since. Not Spain, France or any other country have won more than 1 world cup since the 2000s.

The Brazil team of 2002 used to perform kick ups, round the world's and rainbow flicks during the build up to their goals.

The last time United played a competitive game was over a year ago.

The 2018 football World Cup happened 4 summers ago but the final was played last weekend

Lukaku was never happy here

James Milner has only been at Liverpool for a season (he only needs one more season there for them to be his longest serving club, and 21 more PL appearances makes Liverpool the club he's appeared for the most in the PL).

No player from any u17 World Cup that showed serious promise has ever made it as a world class player.

Martial has only played a handful of games for us (He's already at 174).

Every Italy national team first choice centre forward is 32 years old. No-one has ever heard of them before. They do fine.
