    Russia v Ukraine

    I may have got it wrong with regards to Mariupol, I can't remenber where I got that figure but I doubt it was as low as 3500 - the Russians have taken 2300+ prisoner alone and there are reports of a lot of bodies. Casualties in constantly bombarded prepared positions creep up which is one of the reasons I reckon Ukrainian casualties are higher now - firepower. Your last point is entirely correct. People do throw out high casualty numbers which can't be consistent with what is actually happening.

    Russia v Ukraine

    Nah most of that is "information war". Tom Cooper's 1:1 is at least in the ballpark of believable but reallistically its probably worse for the Ukranians. 3:2 would be my guess. The Russians are attacking but a lot of those attacks are artillery bombardments. Artillery is still king. Add to that air and missile strikes. 11k - no chance. They lost the best part of that in Mariupol alone most likely. Even the most conservative estimates of the garrison there are 7- 10k and all of them are gone one way or another. Ukraine is on, I believe its 4th round of mobilisation and a lot of videos show the soldier coming to the front as young boys or older men. There are a few videos of mobilised Ukranians criticising being sent to the front without training and cursing the leadership. Few want to talk about Ukrainian losses but then its no good to wonder why their eastern defensive line is slowly collapsing.

    Russia v Ukraine

    I can easily imagine 20k Russian and DPR/LPR dead and a similar or greater proportion wounded. The problems is that most Western people only want to consider these in isolation and are in no hurry to talk about Ukrainian casualties (this being "off narrative") which causes problems in assesing the situation rationally. Tom Copper had a very brief forray into the topic nobody wants to think about once and left it there. Russia has superior firepower and Ukraine is conducting a static defense in many places (sitting in trenches recieving artillery fire with orders not to retreat under any circumstances). There is also the mater of the evacuation (surrender) at Mariupol. Also the Russian airforce and missiles work on Ukrainian positions daily. If one imagines 25k Russian unrecoverable casualties then one must imagine 35k Ukrainian unrecoverable casualties and it includes some of their best fighters at Mariupol.

    We actually haven't been playing well for a while. We are usually very dominant by the end of the season but not this time. We've actually been limping towards the line somewhat.

    Mo can sign or fuck off. Sick of him holding us over a barell while he's doing nothing on the pitch.

    Hecan't shoot. Never has been able to. Its not his "thang". Would be great if he could though.

    We never seem to get enough players to the 6 yard box when we cross.

    Yep. Grab an oar Christiano. As the United Fleet is cruelly buffeted by the first major storm on the Spinklespunk Fjord in 50 years one thought will become clear to Christiano. "I should have just fucking retired to Major League Soccer!"

    If the results go the right way Man U might end up in the Europa Conference. I don't know what the Europa Conference is but it sounds bad and lets face it nothing in football with the word "Conference" tends to be good. They will end up with midweek football against the Spinklespunk irregulars where the goalie is also the postmaster and they will be told they have to row to the isle of Spinklespunk because there are no major transport links. A great opening gift for Tenhag. Make it happen.

    That ref is getting a head start on his retirement. He's already on a beach somewhere in his head.

    Why does Carra sound miserable when we score. I'm not expecting celebrations but geez.
