Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

The frustrating thing is that Haaland and Bruno Fernandes were both available this window, and United had something of an inside track on both of them. The total cost wouldn't have been so much by recent standards in the market, and there's good reason to think they might have had a genuinely trans...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

From Sky Sports (so take with a pinch of salt, but hardly a fucking surprise):

"Inter Milan have rejected an offer from Manchester United to sign midfielder Matias Vecino on loan, according to Sky Italy.

The two sides couldn’t agree on the conditions of the deal."

Bringing someone in like Guardiola would absolutely make a huge fucking difference. An actual football manager who can actually coach football.
Not with that squad, sorry

Re: OGS.....

It's a fucker lads On the one hand we can't keep sacking managers, but on the other hand those managers have to take responsibility for the state we're currently in as they brought in players who just weren't good fits at United but at exorbitant money - Brian's mentioned a few of them, but I was st...

Re: V Burnley

Pretty much sums it up. https://twitter.com/aditya_reds/status/1220099167298576386?s=19 Yep, 100% - while the focus at the top remains solely on the brand and money, even bringing in someone like Guardiola would have little to no impact with the squad in its current state. Does it merit fucking MOR...

Re: OGS.....

Like I said, getting rid of our best signing post Fergie was a mistake. It cost us points overall. Ole's biggest blunder was pandering to the fans. He got rid of that one player who had both the attitude and skills to get us goals. Doesn't look pretty but Fellaini was skilled and impactful in offen...

Just finished reading Milkman Pikey.
Really enjoyed it. Awesome piece of writing. Quite exceptional.
I'm going to finish it over the weekend Swamps (hopefully - realistically there'll be a sequel out by the time I'm finished lol)
Still haven't fucking finished it.....!

Re: v Liverpool (away)

These players are too chicken to attempt to keep the ball under pressure. They're just hoofing it. Fellaini was one player who'd try to retain the ball under pressure and actually succeed. He was among the few who had the right attitude even though everyone were against him. Ole got rid of him when...

Re: Squad

Bailly got 2 more years on his contract. Hasn't played this season. 8 league starts last season. 11 the season before. Another 'protect his value' situation like Rojo Bailly's a strange one - when he's played and had a run of games (long time ago it seems now!!) he's always looked OK to me, and I a...
