Re: Other Teams' Stuff

I see Pep mocked the suggestion that he 'over thinks' his Champions League tactics... he said hehas won a lot of CL games. Well Pep winning a lot of games is irrelevant if you lose the ones that matter .... fact: when the games matter you've failed, Last seasons final against Chelsea - odd starting ...

Re: The Managerial Merry-go-around.

Wayne Rooney says we should go for Pochettino because Poch has 'done it in the premier league' Well... Claudio Ranieri has won the premier league... get him in :joint: A good way to judge a manager is by his spending...

Re: Other Teams' Stuff

My take is that he's just going to let them run the club on his behalf for a while, I suspect he won't go to many games and will be keeping a low profile, I'm sure he'd get a few boos from Chelsea fans as well as lots of boos from their opponents fans. If he was ever forced to sell Chelsea FC he'd p...

Re: Ukraine

What really makes me laugh is the response of the UK, US, Nato etc etc, what a joke they are. Vlad Putin is not stupid, just look at the guy... he sends people over to Salisbury to poison someone, he didn't care if people knew he did it or not, he's had numerous other people 'dealt with' and apart f...

Re: The Managerial Merry-go-around.

People are only just realising you can't compare Messi to Ronaldo, Ronaldo has done it in the Premier League, he's done it in the La Liga and he's done it in the Serie A, where as Messi has only done it in the La Liga and is now struggling to play in a team with egos like Neymar and Mbappe. This was...

Re: Maguire

He's an average player, yes he looked good at Leicester but that was in a team with limited expectations, he is a good defender for clubs who want to finish 7th and below but he doesn't have the technical side to his game to be a top, top defender. That celebration when he scored for England against...

Re: Viva Ronaldo - He’s back.

A lot of United fans are saying 'he's not as good as he was' blah blah... I call any player who can get 20 a season a good player. There is a difference between Ronaldo and other players over 33, look at his body, he's a fitness nut, it's not just his skills on the ball that made him who he is, it's...

Re: Forum upgrade and changes

Message for the Admin, when I go to reply / post a topic I keep getting logged out after about 2 minutes, there was also a debug error at the top of the screen when I posted my last post, something about an 'array' or some thing like that.

Re: Jadon Sancho - Welcome.

Very good signing on paper and if we get the Varane deal over the line it ramps the pressure up on OGS in terms of expectation and will give us an insight into how he handles big players.

Re: Maguire

The Telegraph are saying his sister was stabbed in the arm, if that is the case then I can see why he may have reacted.

They are also saying Gareth Southgate will give him a ring in the next 48 hours before making a decision on whether to inlcude him in the Nations League squad.
