Someone’s Having a Real Laugh - How Long Until They ‘Bin Bag’ Ten Hag?

Recommended Posts

I know Shaw’s reputation has taken a bit of a kicking, and Telles isn’t exactly a world-beater, but is a left-back really their number one priority at the moment? There seems to be a distinct whiff of ‘What Dutch players can we sign?’

No real data to back this up so it's all speculative, but, how many successful managers who flood teams with players from their previous team or sign lots of players from the same nationality go on to be a success?

 

Mourinho is the only one who immediately springs to mind but even then it was only one or two players. Not sure Nuno counts at Wolves because that was a Mendes project.

 

When Klopp joined I thought we'd be the go to club for German players but we've largely ignored it.

Wenger brought in plenty of frenchies and didn't do too bad.

Rafa won a couple of trophies.

As Ten Hag is coming from a farmer's league, I hope his sales pitch to any new potential recruits is  'It ain't much, but it's honest work.'

I'd stay at Brentford away from the shit show that is Manchester United PLC. 

Hahaha! What a numpty (Neville, not Eriksen) - the so called £11m dividends is less than what Sancho gets in a year! So the owners can pay £15m+ to Sancho as wages but cannot take £11m to themselves from the club they OWN!!
