Re: Ed Woodward, ballbag

Real have agreed a few for Hazard. That’s four or five players they’ve locked down for their rebuild already, including Militao in January.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Not sure how reliable the following comment is, but it's pretty much bang on the nail...... When one figure who works at Barcelona in a senior capacity was told of the rumours United could beat the Spanish champions to De Ligt, they reacted in utter bemusement. “ With the state they’re in, it’s not...

Re: Brexit

Give it up, Sid. FFS. If you can just accept that you and Corbyn have been force fed a lot of exaggerated shite about the EU, you'll be able to see where the real bad guys are. The EU's not perfect, but it's what we'll make of it. As long as you keep clinging to this "exterminate the middle class, t...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

There's a good interview here with the journalist Simon Stone by Howson. Howson's no use, but Stone has a lot of interesting things to say. He really stresses the need for a team and a system, signing good players without really building a team is going to get us nowhere. He makes a few good points ...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Swapping our star man for a job lot of Real rejects is mid-table behaviour.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I'd swap Bale for Sanchez, might be an improvement, but otherwise no interest. The ship has long sailed.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

So Real want our best player and offer shite in return, you must be joking. Isco's a good player, but no one is interested in Bale or James. Why would we watch Real hand over over serious coin to Chelsea for Hazard, but let ourselves be fobbed off with dross? Real sound a bit skint to me. Barca too....

Re: Other Teams' Stuff

Pep would probably win the Champo with City if he kept at it, but he doesn't seem the type to stick around long term. Poch has taken Spurs as far as he can. They'll lose a couple more key players this summer, he needs to move on before it goes a bit rotten. That's what happened to Klopp at Dortmund....

Re: United set to create DoF role

The rot set in well before Ferguson retired. After Carrick in 2005 or 2006, we've only really made one excellent signing — De Gea — in the sense of a quality player who is a regular starter and cornerstone of the team. There were a few others who were ok, had their moments, or were short term signin...
