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

Recommended Posts

Just as long as the Glazers stay there. A lot of their fans are moaning about how shite the ground is and needs investment. The Glazers havent spent a penny on the place since they took over.

They're never gonna get anywhere with this helmet there, nor while they maintain a transfer policy based purely around placating their idiot fans rather than building towards a long-term strategy. Anything that protracts the anguish and forces them to haemorrhage more cash is fine by me.

Do you not think they've kind of stopped that now? Their signings this last year haven't been too bad. They've overpaid for some, but there's not the dross like they've been buying.

So were Fowler and Owen

Scored 4 goals in three finals between them in 2001. Imagine them without the injuries.

 

The key will be whether they have the desire to strengthen in their weaker positions, which means non-sexy signings. If they do so, they have half a chance. Of course they then have to be properly coached and hope that everyone else falls away - happened in 2016 and 2017.

We were well able to play some fantastic football at the end of many seasons when other teams were running away with the league. Let’s see how Solskjaer does when he has to come up with plans B, C and D tactically once other coaches twig his methods.

The glorious run continues against winless Bournemouth.

 

Solksjaer was even feeling bold enough to have a pop at the doubters at the start of his reign.

 

Going to make it all the better when this inplodes

Their front three have scored more goals than our front three, don't you know.

 

If they can find a half decent central defender then they'll be challenging for the title.

 

Apparently.

The mancs reached 55 points on Saturday, we reached 55 points 188 days before them, on the 29th of December. 
 

We really should be looking over our shoulders next season. Ole’s at the wheel.

It would be nice if we could get 17 penalties so our lads could pad their stats too.

Its basically the same sort of run he had after Mourinho got sacked. A few winnable games against teams in the bottom half of the league, easy draws in the domestic cups and a few routine wins in Europe.

Just imagine how many they would have of Howard Webb was still refereeing.

Removing tribalism, I can see Fernandes is a brilliant player and Greenwood is a terrific talent. Rashford is a sound lad who is also a very good player - hyped up though because he is English and plays with United. Martial and Pogba look half arsed.

 

They are clicking. The thing is that pace and a brilliant midfielder pulling the strings can be worth a lot in this league. They remind me a little bit of us under Brendan. It's not inconceivable that they get a head of steam if they get their customary easy start to the season. 

 

Long term, I just don't see how Ole wins a league over Jurgen and Pep. These guys are managerial giants and ultimately superior to Ole in every sense. 

 

They have played shit teams, albeit ones with a lot to play for like Brighton and Bournemouth. It is the perfect storm for us with them - Ole and their hordes getting cocky. 

Still I remember pissing myself at how shit a manager Ferguson was and look how that turned out.

The League is far, far stronger than it's ever been. 

The top 6 have all been the strongest for ages,below that though I would say that the PL players are fitter and more athletic than they've ever been but lack the technical ability of the likes of similar teams in Spain and Italy for example. It really is all about the money in the PL as has been proved by United,Chelsea and even Blackburn. Leicester were hardly paupers either! Kudos to Arsenal and ourselves for spending less than our rivals but using it more wisely to achieve success.

Irrespective of his managerial acumen, if they add Sancho and a decent defender to what they have, and the team is capable of organising itself, they’ll have a decent outfit next season.

This, but also they’re a mess off the field generally. Their owners are parasites, just sucking cash out of the club.
Ewar Woowar is clueless (at the football stuff anyway - if you want your club to be the first to have an official anal lube partner then he’s your man) yet has a massively important and powerful role. 
And their players? Plenty of good ones, but many more who are rank average yet overpaid/overhyped/underachieving. How many international central defenders can one club have on the books without having a convincing centre of defence? Fernandes aside, who was the last signing they made who was not just successful but good value for money? The squad is a mix of players signed by five different bosses now, and it shows. 
That said, I hope that Ole gets many more years to continue to excellent work that he’s doing.

    • Aren't they looking at that Greek left back? Oh.
    • I've always thought that surely we could get a better kit sponsor than Standard Chartered. Like not a scummy bank and maybe an actual recognizable brand. The Chevy logo looks like shit on a football shirt but at least everyone knows what it is. 
    • Meh, we do the same thing. Pay a premium price for our players or you're not getting them. They aren't saying Lewis, Cantwell, etc... aren't for sale and can't leave, they're saying pay the fee we want or you're not getting them. No problem with that. It's standard stuff.   And to be honest, we flimflammed the market when we got Robertson for the same money, but nowadays 8m +2 or whatever we bid for a young British player with potential and a long contract was a bit of a piss take bid anyway. 
    • Very good thread.    Our lack of commercial growth is pretty concerning and i'm glad the club look to be addressing it. May be a big reason why Peter Moore was moved on. I mean the 5m/year deal with Western Union was shite even at the time we agreed to it.   We have a very successful team, one of the biggest fanbases in the globe, a really compelling sporting narrative (YNWA, 30 years, etc.), global international icons (in Salah, Mane, VVD, Allison) and incredibly charismatic manager. Surely we should be doing better commercializing all of that? A 76m/year gap between us and the Mancs (whilst we've been at our peak and them at their nadir) is not good enough.
    • Eh? I disagree - I think they do. I'm sure you've heard Jurgen specifically talking about the importance of good squad morale, harmony and doing the right thing for the player. Some of it is fluff but it's largely the reason he's such a brilliant manager.     Norwich now have a fucked off LB in their ranks and no doubt, all of their other players who wanted PL moves will take note (Cantwell, Aarons, etc). Good luck to them at finding a club who'll give them what they value him at after we've publicly walked away - I agree he'll find another club but I don't think they'll get more than 12m for him.    I'm not saying they were obliged to sell to us, but I don't think we'd have walked away unless they were being pretty absurd with their valuation. Noises of "20m and we can start talking" are ridiculous if true. I don't think Liverpool wanted a back and forth saga over a backup LB, and Norwich unfortunately didn't read the room.    Lastly, poor lad. Im really happy with Tsimikas (he was my preference based on what I've seen and read) but Lewis is a talented British fullback who has publicly gushed over our two British world-class fullbacks and was willing to take a pay cut as in investment in his career. I like the idea of players like that playing for us and I hope he finds an alternative club where he can succeed.
