  1. Wasn't it James Pearce who wrote up an article a month ago saying that we went in for him last summer but he didn't want to come as he didn't think he'd get enough playing time? We had a whole discussion about it somewhere on here. Remain convinced that he's a genuine world class player who would suit us down to the ground. It's a real shame if he's chalked us off his list because he's afraid he'll sit on the bench behind Firmino & Mane. I think, as Lee notes above, that he'd get plenty of starts and he'd be coming to us just as he enters his peak (and right as Mane and Firmino begin to exit theirs). I would think in his position the choice would be an easy one, and the fact that he doesn't see it that way doesn't speak well of his decision-making.
  2. Had a good laugh at Pereira missing out on a tap-in during that game, by the way. Karma for the time our U21s (at the time) were playing United's and he put in a proper shithouse performance, worst I'd ever seen in a youth game. Pereira even straight-up punched Jordan Lussey in the face when the referee wasn't looking if memory serves. The cameras caught it but he got away with it scott free as none of the refs spotted it, so his disastrous performance today was just a case of him getting what he deserved IMO.

    Man Utd (H) Premier League - 19/1/20

    I hope someone puts together a video on our best moves during that game. We didn't manage to convert any of them, but there were several chances where the football was unreal - pass and move, tricks, flicks, everything. I kept waiting for the Poetry In Motion song to be dusted off. Firmino and Gini in particular were outstanding. Bobby at his nonchalant best, Gini working his socks off to do all the little things to stop United putting anything together. Should have won it by 4 or 5, but I'll take a 2-0 against the Mancs any day.
  4. I was gutted, absolutely gutted when we missed out on Memphis Depay. Turns out we had to go for our backup target, Roberto Firmino instead, and it all worked out OK. Just out of curiosity, I went to look up how Depay is doing at Lyon this season. He has 14 goals in 18 games there, so not too badly! Maybe it's just that the Mancs were utter crap when he was there and made him look bad. Still only 25 - now I'm wondering if there's any chance we would go back in for him?

    I have absolutely nothing to say on this topic.

    Top 20 revenue by clubs in 2018-19

    It really is one for the "modern football is shit" thread that they signed a player who has admitted to rape and it somehow increased their marketing revenue. Beggars belief.
  7. Grealish is a good player. Not a great one, mind, but good. He could replace Lallana in the summer and we'd be more or less as good as we are now. The problem with Gray's statement is twofold: one, he'd cost double what he's worth, and two, only an idiot thinks Grealish is a good as Wijnaldum or Keita. But then again, this is Andy Gray we're talking about.

    Is it just me that finds "To Dare is To Do" a really asinine slogan? It just doesn't seem to do a good job getting across the point it's presumably trying to make. Slogans are rarely founts of wisdom, but at least "This Means More" is a coherent thought, and "Our Identity is Intensity" even communicates something about our style of play in a way that makes sense. Hell, even if it's counter-factual, even Everton's "Nil Satis Nisi Optimum" is a rational idea.

    If you want an English player coming into his prime with these qualities, Jack Grealish is better and would cost less than Maddison. I mean, we won't be after either because I'd back Edwards to pull a name out of his black box that would be better than them for 20m. Or maybe just play Curtis Jones there instead.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    There is just so much to love. Obviously the hypocrisy about going on about how only scousers support Everton and not being a scouser himself, but I also liked his logic regarding the Champion's League. In one breath, he claimed it was "devalued and didn't mean anything to win it," but literally three seconds later he says "their second string SHOULD be better than Everton's first team, they're the champions of Europe." So, like, on the one hand, it doesn't mean anything, but on the other hand, it means we should be easily wiping the floor with every mid-table team so it's not a real success when we do it.

    I'd like to see us go all-out for Sancho now in that case. I would have preferred something like Havertz and Werner as our transfer targets in the summer, but if Werner is out I'd like to see us go big. And I'm assuming Mbappe is completely unrealistic, so the next best is Sancho (though he'd normally cost more than we typically like to spend). Werner is foolish for turning us down - sure, he wouldn't have been first choice right away, but I don't think it would have been as cut and dry as he makes out. He would have been fighting with Firmino for first-choice striker, different player but we could adapt as he's truly outstanding. And he played on the left and did really well last season, so I think he could have been a backup for Mane as well. He'd have gotten at least 30 games next season surely. Add to that the fact that I think we'll be looking to cash in on one of the wide players in 2021 (Edwards is too smart to wait until after their legs start to go) and he'd have put himself in perfect position to star for a team that is built to dominate for the entire peak of his career. Oh, well. Sancho it is, then. Might come down to whether he wants to win (in which case he'll choose us, surely, even if the offer is slightly lower) or make as much as possible (in which case he'll go to United and be seen as a cautionary tale within three years).
  12. Remember when Solskjaer got sacked after taking Cardiff down with a disgraceful record? Well, ... Samantha Quek @SamanthaQuek 1h Solskjaer’s win percentage as permanent manager: Cardiff: 30% Manchester United: 27%

    Takumi Minamino

    Not seen much on here about Minamino's debut, but I've been thinking about it a bit today. Not the performance so much (obviously not much to take away from a performance by a player who has had two training sessions - it was solid enough, I suppose) but the position he played. I know he's meant to be very versatile and maybe we shouldn't infer too much from a single game but I thought it was very interesting that he played through the centre, in the Bobby role, rather than out wide or in midfield. When he played against us for Salzburg it was that very possibility that intrigued me - a technically gifted pressing maniac who is as good a provider as he is a scorer? It sounds very "Firmino." Anyway, it should be very interesting as we move forward to see if that's where he plays most of the time. Finding a like-for-like backup for Firmino has always seemed like a very challenging task as he's such a unique player. Would be outstanding if we manage to find a comparable player, in quality as well as style, and do it for only 7 million.
