Re: So how do we fix it?

We need a modern young manager and proven premiership players with legs & hunger rather than Bale, Ronaldo etc. hollywood signing. Hungry players, hungry manager will see at least start fighting for the ball & will earn the club some respect. No bullshit tactics or philosophy but a clear message, w...

Re: OGS.....

Against Chelsea, we seemed to try pressing high in the first half, in a similar style to Klopp. We didn't have great success -- Pogba and McT seemed very distant from the front four. Pereira and Lingard seemed to barely exist. I don't think the high press works well unless the whole team is working ...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Sounds like Sporting and his agent were clowns that fucked it up and turned prospective buyers off. It sounds like they just priced him out of the market, while also irritating clubs that made inquiries by talking constantly to the press. If he or Eriksen are still available in January, we should st...

Says in The Times that we pulled the plug on Fernandes because he had bad passing stats.

Re: vs Wolves

Yep, our midfield is weak and we do all our attacking down the left. Big problems. Best hope is that James can provide some end product from the right flank and then Lingard can be a serviceable number 10 in the Ji Sung Park runabouty mould.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Reports Ole wants Sanchez gone. Yes mate get rid of the cunt. No great loss except for the small, dwindling hope that he might come good for us as a number 10 or on the right. But probably best just to get his sulking presence out of the joint, even if we'll still be paying a large share of his wag...

Re: vs Wolves

Ole hasn't had enough credit for not shitting his pants vs Chelsea. He could have easily gone with the "experience" against a top 4 team and played Smalling, Young, the big old dosser Matic - especially when Chelsea were dominating midfield. I agree with that, I was very surprised not to see Matic ...

Re: vs Wolves

Wolves have a great midfield so they'll dominate possession, so we'll have to play on the counter. But if we do more of that one & two touch football we'll tear em apart. I hope Ole goes with the same 11 and keeps Jones, Smalling, Matic and Young away from the 11. I think it will be the other way r...
