Re: Euros 2021

I’ve no dog in the fight. I’ll just hope to see some entertaining football and root for the underdogs and for the teams that are entertaining to watch. England will need to do more than score from set pieces to get my respect.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I actually think swapping Pogba for Ronaldo is not a terrible idea. I’d be against just buying Ronaldo. But we should get something for Pogba instead of letting him walk away on a free next summer. So swapping Pogba for Ronaldo might be the best of a bunch of not great options.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Just listened to the transfer window podcast with Duncan Castles, some interesting points raised about Utd. He's saying that the new transfer committee dont know what budget they have for the summer, as the glazers are operating on the lines of lets see what appeases the fans as deals are done, and...

Re: Plucky little biggest club in the world

Jose has come out and taken the piss out of the falling standards at United, pointing out that second place is now considered a successful season. He’s a cunt, but he’s obviously right. Think of it this way — we came second under him with 81 points, and City won the title this season with 86 points...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I think we need another attacker and creator on the right (or primarily for the right anyway). It doesn’t have to be Sancho, but he does look a good option. Im definitely wary of the shit-outside-Dortmund phenomenon, but he’s also still so young, still should get better. I’m sure his being English a...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Apparently we are back in for Tielmans, happy to pay £65m, a couple of years after he was offered to us for £15m. The decision making at the club is fucking ridiculous. Yeah it was obvious at the time that he was a good player. He’d be an excellent 8 for us. Good replacement for Pogba too. I’d stil...

Re: Euros 2021

England must be in with a real shout at this. Germany meanwhile seem to be showing signs of imploding. Disagreements between the Bayern contingent’s preference for playing a back 4 and the trainer’s plans for a back 3... Yeah England have a very good squad. The manager is worthless, but the tournam...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

It could end up like de Beek. Players like de Beek and Sancho can look great at Ajax and Dortmund, playing in a well-developed tactical system. But then they struggle when they come to United, where the tactical plan is for 6 players to park the bus and the other four to show “character” and “magic”.
