    I always like Divock at Christmas time playing the Blueshite myself.
  2. Platini would be a string candidate for a greatest ever 11. Incredible player.
  3. Beautiful post that. You nailed the little gnome. As you say, for someone so talentless, he gets away with murder living off soundbites to get the orcs onside with his dickhead mates in the media made up of people like Rio giving him a free ride. What I have liked most about him is how he puts in a maverick result (beating City away or knocking PSG out of the Champions League at their place) just when the wolves are gathering at the door. He's a snide little prick but he gives me endless entertainment to be fair to him. They have enough very good players to have a very good season, but if they win a big trophy under him (unlikely imo), it's because they have a huge squad and they might get jammy with us, City and Chelsea all having multiple injuries to big players.

    I think what I liked most about that was that Ole has the excuse of having 10 men for that defeat. I know Atalanta have sold a few players but hopefully they are the dangerous side they have been the last few years and equally Villareal are a competent team who United have history with. At the very least, if the fuckers were made to sweat until the last game without resting players. Have them out on their feet picking up a few 6 week injuries here and there (nothing serious just enough to derail their season).

    Joel Matip

    Big Bird is majestic. People rave about Ruben Dias and rightly so,as well as others, but Matip is a candidate for being the 2nd best centre half in the world when fit.

    Agree with that. I think his general game was good. Nice to see that him and Mo seem to have put whatever shit happened behind them. I have faith Sadio will get his mojo back. Right now, it feels like he's 70% of the player he was, perhaps less. That's still a very good player.

    Feel like we lost I'm so gutted for the kid. He will be one of the players of his generation. Gutted for him.
  8. Their attacking depth is phenomenal. Cavani is still a wonderful player and Greenwood looks like a generational talent. Completely agree about the rest. I mean Jones, Kelleher and Tsimikas have shown glimpses of real talent. Konate is potentially top class. Gomez a really good player. Personally I think Elliott is going to start a lot of games this year. Outstanding player he could be. The problem is we have a few like Keita and Ox who contribute fuck all, when they should be guys we can turn to and feel asured they can do the business.
  9. Yeah I agree Docker. He was an incredible player, but is now more a very good player. Fortunately, as long as they have a manager that isn't elite and in truth is far from it, they won't win the top prizes. The concerning thing would be them getting an elite manager because playing wise they aren't too far off. They have the fourth best starting line up, but a fine squad. Our starting line up is much better, though I do envy their depth. I feel in Jones, Elliott, Kelleher and Tsimikas we have four very talented lads who could let FSG off the hook in the next few years. Elliott looks like he could be a world beater. It may be that in a few months, I feel a lot more confident of our squad, but hard to see the likes of Ox and Keita contributing much.
  10. Maybe City. Though a shark is graceful so harsh on it to be compared to those knobheads. Only listen to it in passing. Agree that it's a waste of time to listen to.
  11. Want to know what's worse than a gobby Manc? A gobby Cockney Manc. That fucking Andy Goldstein kicks it off for me. Absolute knobhead. His show on Talkshite is basically MUFC TV now. You know what. If we don't win the league, it's going to be Chelsea, City or United. It's like deciding whether you want to be mauled to death by a great white shark, a lion or a crocodile. Three horrible clubs.

    Have only ever been on city breaks to Porto and Lisbon and thought the people were sound. Having said that, they have a wonderful collection of snidey twats in their team. I mean Italy have set the gold standard for it, but their snide is somewhat endearing (except when Liverpool are getting fucked over by them), whereas there is nothing likeable about the Portuguese team. Dare I say, even Jota can be a whiney snide fucker when playing with Portugal (great lad with us to be fair).
