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

Recommended Posts

The money and wages they spend ole will have success at some point sporadically. If city get Halaand then either Grealish or Sancho are probably united bound. Either of those players in that team regardless of Ole will be a nightmare. As long as Abhi Dhabi exists its going to be a case of who can mount the best challenge. Still Ole is more of a hinderence to their success than anything. I'd be more worried if they got a top manager or even someone like nagelsmann.

their fans love him, and while I don’t think they are improving massively they are still improving which is annoying, they have their hope back and are getting giddy especially with our own troubles at the moment. they have the bones of a very good team, tons of money and a lot of promising youth coming through which he seems to give chances to.

 

I’d preferred the days where they were on the manager merry go round and having to rip it all up again. He might not win the league or CL but he is stabilising them.

OGS has done pretty much the same as all their post Ferguson managers - they look good at times because they have lots of good players, but they rarely do well once under pressure. So for me it's sound they're extending his contract, because it's a cycle we're only too familiar with.

 

Excluding that little period towards the end of hodgson, we've mostly followed the same path since Kenny left. Souness brought us an fa cup, but a bunch of on and off field issues (many brought on by himself) cause that to fail. Evans did ok, got us a league cup (when it counted a bit more), got is playing nice football, but we always cracked when we were under pressure in the league. Houllier gave us that great 2001 and perhaps we could have gone on had he not got ill. Rafa 2005, but again we wanted the league and every time we looked like we could do it, we (or i might argue he) shat the bed. Then the H&G period, Kenny won us our 1st trophy in years but was sacked because of his league position. Rodgers didn't win anything, but shat the bed after we came close in 2014. How relentless we were in 2019 showed the character of this team and manager even if it didn't win the league that year. 

 

OGS is liked by the fans and they have loads of good players who turn it on individually now and again. But I don't think they will be any threat under him at all. Everytime they looked close in the league they've shit it. And just look at them in this year's CL. They're happy. We're happy. It seems a result all round.

All of which I agree with, I just preferred it when their fans were in deep dispair at their team and at each other’s throats it was highly amusing to watch the fallout after all the high horse shit they dolled out while on top to other teams.

I read an article on The Athletic which suggested with a straight face that OGS's lack of any discernible tactical plan was in itself a deliberate move to take advantage of the chaos of this season. That was arguably the closest I've come to an enjoyable moment this season.

It’s a team totally reliant on individual skill. There’s no discernible plan or strategy. If they keep spending 100s of millions and fill the team with top talent then they’ve a chance in those seasons where everyone else is a bit shit like when Leicester won it.  
 

Long may Ole reign over them!

You see there's good and bad in the despair. When they were tearing their hair out with previous managers, it was in the context of city getting above them and then longing for the Ferguson days. But they've fallen so far, they're now acceptance of this mediocrity, despite us and city getting above them, mainly because they like OGS and want him to succeed. That's how much they've lowered their standards. I think there's a lot to enjoy in that.

I preferred the one on Mourinhos invincibles, who drew nil nil at home something like 15 times

They’d be forgiven for thinking they’ve risen above us again, but that’s our own fault and all being well it will bite them on the arse big time next season. It says a lot about how poor everyone else is that they’re within closest shouting distance of City.

Deffo. They think they've caught us (in fact gone past us), but the reverse is true, we've caught them going backwards. We've been like an F1 car with 3 wheels this season.

He's asking if you would rather have one of the world's best ever midfielders or Andreas Iniesta.

I mean though does he mean prime iniesta or the fella who's playing in some random chump league? If you're talking today, there's no comparison. The same can be said of their respective primes. Which is why I don't really get what he's saying. He can't possibly be saying would you have Fernandes over a prime iniesta?

Was thinking the same. They probably have more points than they have shots this season.
