Someone's having a real laugh - sperm of gollum to Utd.

Hopefully he last through international break. I do wonder if they contact Spurs though to do a deal for Pochitino.

Ole is awful and he's also partly to blame for the contents of his squad, but it's bordering on sabotage what he has to work with. 0-1 down and he had Chong and Greenwood to throw on and Tuanzebe at right back. Pogba and Martial are injured but you can't totally fall apart with two players out. Their depth is basically zero. 

 

This is all set up so the new manager after him has a total clean slate and they're seeing what kids they have that don't totally stink. Right now he's just a puppet for a rebuild that will happen after he's unceremoniously dumped on his ass. 

I actually think Mouninho did well to finish second with that at the time shower of shit.

Rashford needs to make up his mind whether he wants to be a proper no 9 or more a support striker. He doesn’t make the run in behind enough I don’t reckon. He kind of floats about linking up play, but that means there’s no one in the box for them, not especially when you play with one upfront.

Not sure if it was earlier midweek or before last weekend, but I got in the car to drive home after doing some good shopping and Andy Cole was being asked about Rashford by whoever was talking to him on 5 Live, and he was asked what at he needs to do as a proper number 9.

 

i though with Cole’s history as a pretty successful one he’d have something insightful to say, but his answer amused me.

 

”as a number nine, I want to see an Aguero, a Firmino”.

 

they should get Cole involved in their coaching setup I reckon.

It's not the same at all, though. Before finishing 2nd, Mourinho was backed loads and rode the coat-tails of De Gea who was superhuman that season. They didn't play good football and had a hugely expensive squad, but they got results. Not hugely impressive, no matter how much Mourinho wants to spin it now with hindsight.

The squad Mourinho finished second with (on a measly 81 points - for perspective he would have been 16 points behind our 2nd placing last season, and was 19 points behind that season with City) was unrecognisable from the squad Solskjaer has now. Ibrahimovic, Herrera, Blind, Carrick, Lukaku, Valencia -- Mata & Matic several years younger (and ever so slightly less over the hill, though both were on the turn then) and first year enthusiastic Pogba. All solid international quality players - ranging from some former league title winners through to a couple of strikers who both could get close to 20 goals a season (Lukaku scored 27 that year; Ibrahimovic 28 the year prior).

 

It wasn't a great squad, but it had decent depth and an 80-point finish wasn't a crazy expectation. What they have now is just a mess - any decent international players they bought in (Pogba; Martial) have just been ruined or disillusioned through multiple managerial changes & complete lack of discipline while most of the squad looks like something you'd expect at Crystal Palace or Fulham of a few years ago. Struggle to see them getting more than mid-50s points. What's the worst league total we ever had?

We’ve had a few Premier League finishes in the 50’s, Ged and Roy’s joint season was one of them, but sad to say I think Kenny’s full season back with us was the worst league total of the past 30+ years at 52.

 

Couldn't say for all-time.

I think that’s the problem. Martial played the number 9 role before his injury... and Rashford played on the left. 

As a fan of natural positions I thought you would realise that Lukaku is the number 9. They haven't replaced him.

Great to see the Mancs in the shite. Took a gander at Red Cafe, they are openly campaigning for anyone at all to come in as interim manager til the end of the season. Saw a good few of them wanting Benitez - imagine going back in time 10 years and telling them that in 2019 they'd be begging to have him as manager!

It's hilarious how shit they are. They're not just shit, they are total toilet. I would fucking Kevin Keegan love it if they got relegated and went down. Imagine them and blueshite getting flushed in a single season. Fucking dreamland.

The season Suarez seemed to miss everything and people started saying he isn't a striker.

Someone who knows Rashford is over rated wank..... That's the last person I want at that club.

Agent Woodward let us have the honor of arranging Maureens's farewell party. Would'n't suprppise me if he gives us the honor to arrange Ole's funeral as well.


One more match, surely they'll keep Ole at the wheel one more match. Please!

It's enjoyable while it lasts but sooner or later they will get their shit together and buy their way out of trouble. They are just too loaded to go too long without success, and money invariably will buy you success.

After all the gloom let's see a manic with a happy face, a positive attitude, a spring in the step, a song in the throat, a ray of sun over a rain sodden day, a sense of wonder, an unmistakable sense of optimism, a joy of life, a love of the present, a longing for the future...

 

 

Oh well.. never mind..
