Short plane ride for super wealthy athletes. Schweini was apparently never in Manchester when he supposedly played for us.

Re: Erik Ten Hag

The top managers won’t go near us anyway. We’re a career-killing shit show.

Re: Assessing our squad

And round and round we go. Leaks that the players are 'revolting' and that 'Hags abrupt manner is creating disharmony'. I fucking despise this group of players. They fucking are revolting. Get shut, and play the kids. FFS. When you're losing, everyone should be angry at everyone. They want everythi...

Re: Erik Ten Hag

I recall a pundit making the observation that things were going well and Hag was backed but what would happen when Hag has that inevtiable slump in his 2nd or 3rd year. How would Hag cope and how would the fans react. I can't remember which pundit it was but it was someone who I rate and so I took ...

Re: Erik Ten Hag

In other words, I'd be happy to stick with TH while Ratcliffe fixes all the football operations that are supposed to support the manager. Give one of our managers a platform for success, and let's see how he does.

Re: Erik Ten Hag

I'm not Hag 'til I die or anything, but he impressed me last season with the way he dug in and made a good season out of it, despite a terrible start and bad circumstances. The state United is in, that impresses me more than whoever the hot manager of the moment is at some other club. There's nobody...

Re: Assessing our squad

Yeah it also shows why our managers keep falling back on getting players they already know and have a good relationship with. United is just not a competently run or professional club, at all.

Re: Jadon Sancho - Welcome.

So this player's career seems like it's effectively over, by his own choice. Fair enough I suppose, he's already set for life with just this one United contract, assuming he doesn't want to live in absurd luxury. Young man with no financial cares, I'm jealous. But fucking shit recruitment by United!...

Re: Beckham

I've not seen it yet but I will say Beckham was underrated. It was often said he was limited, and he was, but I think it's more a case of his talent not matching his ridiculous megastar fame the like of which you don't get now. People forget he used to control games through work rate, personality, ...
