Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

He'd have been better than sicknote Tony who insists that he can still contribute this season.

Re: Assessing our squad

Protecting young players from the mental pressures is something that is shockingly neglected in this country. A couple of good games and we start labelling them as the next superstar, piling on the expectation, demanding the same performance week in week out. It's the fucking media I bet. Fergie was...

Re: Assessing our squad

Just goes to show how bad our recruitment is. Ok, so Varane has been with us 2.5 years but last season was his only decent season with us and so hardly £50m worth. But then Casemiro for £60m on a bumper 5 year contract made no sense when there was the likes of Tielemans going for free. An obscene am...

Re: Assessing our squad

I read earlier that both Casemiro and, more importantly, Martinez are back in full training. That's some welcome news. It'll be nice to have Casemiro back for a couple of games before his inevitable red card and suspension. ...just hope he's stayed off the mince pies. He's Brazilian, there's no way...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

So, it looks as though we have let Sancho go to Dortmund with them paying only a quarter of his wages. Its a missed opportunity to set an example on a wider basis, but I suppose the gamble the club is taking is that he goes back and recaptures his form, boosting his price tag for the summer. Right ...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

More talk of Muller ffs. The club has learned nothing. I can't imagine Ratcliffe has anything to do with this cos it's a classic post Fergie deal aka ageing player on the decline that's looking for a club stupid enough to give him a mega wage. This kind of shite has to end with the Ratcliffe era. L...

Re: Erik Ten Hag

However, where I struggle with him, is in his inability to set in place a playing style that’s clear, and his inability to solve obvious and consistent flaws in our game - which is strange, because unless I’m mis-remembering, I’m sure that a consistent feature of last season is that our 2nd half pe...

Re: Vs Forest

It’s because we aren’t incisive enough in that attacking third. We try and play too many passes and keep it congested and then try a Hollywood pass in frustration.
