Re: Will the Glazers sell?

Have said this before, but it’s worth repeating. I’m a bit out of touch with company law these days, but assuming nothing much has changed, I think a 25% holding and a good minority shareholders agreement would put Ratcliffe in a very strong position. He would have pre-emption rights over the Glaze...

Re: Will the Glazers sell?

I can’t see Ratcliffe’s minority stake being a stable situation. The Glazers are too used to deciding everything between themselves and giving the outside world no clue of their thinking. There will be loads of leaks and gossip, which I guess would be some kind of improvement for supporters! Sooner ...

Re: Other Teams' Stuff

Prem refs have been paid by the UAE to ref one off games in their country for handsome fees and 5 star treatment. How the fuck is this allowed when the UAE has a vested interest in the Prem via City? Why Prem refs? What are the UAE getting for their money? These are owners facing 115 charges of cor...

Re: Will the Glazers sell?

The Qatari bid has been bubbling in the news lately, sounds like they might be trying to make it happen. There were counter stories pushing Ratcliffe saying he was the favourite too. I'm not sure anything has changed tbh. Just the usual bollocks. The Qataris have now officially pulled out of the bi...

Re: Onana

His introduction to the PL was always going to be rough, with a lot of pundits ready to pounce. ETH has taken a big risk here. Then again, we needed some kind of change of GK. None of the preferred back 4 being available is obviously making the situation much worse. He’s going to have to be very thi...

Re: Erik Ten Hag

Yeah things aren’t going well, but at least the players are still showing a fighting spirit. It seems like the key issue is whether Ten Hag can get the defending sorted out while still implementing his style of play. We’re short of goal threat as well of course, but that seems like a more basic ques...

Re: Erik Ten Hag

In the Prem there's more knowledge on how to play around pressing teams eg isolating players, overloading the wings, pulling Casemiro out of position. You don't get that in the Netherlands, Spain etc cos it's not how most teams play. Klopp was similarly fucked last season. Both need to save their a...

Re: Erik Ten Hag

What's really depressing is that you can see what Ten hag is trying to do - sometimes it seems to really click, but mostly from midfield forward. Then it all falls apart in defence. It is a bit worrying though that he seems to be trying to press on with a single system, despite the squad deficienci...
