Just wondering if anybody had been able to get or watch, any of the CONIFA World Cup games. We were talking about rule changes a while back and Ed002 mentioned it and how there was going to be a 10 min "sin bin" when a green card was issued. I'm not a million miles from Gander Green Lane but couldn't make any of the games. Bit gutted, as I reckon it would of been a good craic. I know Cyprus are in the final today. I don't think the coverage has been that good either unfortunately.

Every game was on the paddy power website as they were the sponsor and they agreed to sponsor based on the green card for PP.

Cheers for that, I'll try and catch the final tonight.

I know most of us are thinking of new signings, next season, maybe even the World Cup but I'm really glad to of just heard the confirmation of Casey Stoney as the United's Womens team coach.
I really hope she does well and receives good backing and that the women's team can eventually compete with Arsenal, Chelsea and City.
I've taken my girls to a couple of Women's internationals. I recommend it, it's a really good day out.
Does anyone know where they'll be playing/ based? I think I read somewhere it would be The Cliff but I'm not sure.
Anyway, just thought I'd post as I think it's brilliant for the club on the whole and not before time.

I hope it works out and I'm pleased those people that get enjoyment from it will be able to see us compete against other top teams.

My only problem with it is from a purely selfish perspective - media clickbait already irks me. Just imagine the constant headlines all over main stream media, "Utd break transfer record", or "Man Utd star speak out against manager". "Utd Manager in another PMT Rant", oh sorry the last one could apply to both! It already annoys me how they do this with the lesser clubs, now the big boys are entering the fray it will be like mana from heaven!

So long as it's reported and covered properly rather than crafty abuse, it can only be a good thing for everyone.

Just quick post in appreciation of Michael Carrick, who plays his last game for United on Sunday.
I've loved watching him play throughout his career.
Calm and fluid on and off the ball and an intelligent footballer.
I'm glad he's staying on at United in some capacity. He's an important link to our last European success and Ferguson's last great team.
I know he's had some bad days at the office, who doesn't, but he obviously loves the club and a great example for young players coming through the ranks.

Carrick has been great for us in the post Scholes/ Keane era. Very underrated but read the game so well defensively and gave us rhythm going forward. We have missed his poise in recent years.
I wonder whether his type of player is one of the pieces we are missing. Link the back 4 to the midfield in a Pirlo way (not a direct comparison)
Whether that could be with a Kroos or a Veratti type I just think we have a solid HM in Matic but need the rhythm player.
Not seen anything of players linked like Savic or Fred to know if they are the type.


2.) 11 May 2018 13:32:13
I agree, he is very underrated.


3.) 11 May 2018 13:37:08
Carrick made countless stops in the penalty box by making great recovery runs to cut out crosses and cutbacks, something he never got enough credit for.

Very bizarre looking Arsenal team even taking an upcoming Europa League game into consideration.

Have we fast forwarded 2 months - we are treating this game like a friendly. Disgrace so far, no tempo, no umpf - terrible.


2.) 29 Apr 2018 18:10:41
Completely agree Beast. Holiday bags packed, clearly little interest in making starting eleven of cup final. Tedious. Slow. Too many touches.

I thought we made a very good account of ourselves against Arsenal under 18s to be honest.

Good morning. I'm still struggling to understand the thought process behind the tactics used on Tuesday night. I'm also really disappointed by Mourinho's comments post-match. I'd actually thought after the Palace fight back and the Liverpool display that we were in for a strong finish to the season and hopeful for next season. Shows you what I know. I thought his comments were pretty disrespectful and lacked class.
As I've mentioned class, I'm just wondering what people's thoughts are regarding Mourinho working as a pundit for Russia Today during the 2018 World Cup? I think it's an interesting comparison with Guardiola who is fined for showing his solidarity with the independence movement in Catalonia. I'm not saying either is right or wrong, I'd just like to know other posters thoughts on this as it provides, I think, an interesting perspective on two managers and their ideologies and morals.

Yellow Benteens

1.) 16 Mar 2018 08:38:33
The display was so bad and the selection and tactics were even worse. But his post match comments were a disgrace and while I was never his biggest fan in the past, I am now even more determined to see this arrogant, useless idiot out of our club. I can't believe the management haven't reprimanded him. This was an insult to our club and to SAF who was at the match and is a million times the manager mourinho will ever be.
I'm telling you now that United will never win the league with him in charge and we'll never progress either. He's sold KDB and Salah in the past and has turned pogba and Sanchez into nothing. He's destroyed Martial and hererra. He keeps playing fellaini when it is clear to everyone that he's not suited and not good enough.
His tactics and team selections are a joke.
And finally, he's a miserable idiot who seems to think he is still top dog. Well, I can name a load of managers who will run rings round him.


2.) 16 Mar 2018 09:13:35
Most people go on about stability. Were not a sacking club. It hasn’t done Real Madrid or Chelsea any harm. Bollo*ks if he ain’t good enough get rid. The last 5 years have been an utter disgrace. Bored to tears with turgid dross.


3.) 16 Mar 2018 09:23:46
Based on your language, I think you are suggesting that one is right and the other is wrong. Here is my view, where I do the same, but the other way around.

The FA should stop being toothless. If Guardiola's actions are deemed punishable and he continues to do them, then they need to take real action. His current stance is, as I understand it, 'I know the FA think what I am doing is wrong. I'm going to continue to do it anyway, because I don't think it is' with the additional caveat of 'and there are no real repercussions that affect me, the team or that would cause my employer to intercede. ' I think his actions show a complete disregard for the FA, and as a result disrespect for English football - that being said I think the FA bring most of this upon themselves.

Regarding Mourinho's contract with Russia Today. There is no reason why any of us should have an issue with him acting as a pundit during the World Cup. At the time of him signing his contract British-Russian relations were better than they currently are, and presumably he now has contractual obligations.

If dealing with the Russians is deemed as morally reprehensible, then our national team shouldn't be attending at all and our weak FA should've made a stand about this. Whilst this does not relate directly to the decision our manager may make, it is probably reasonable to suggest that our decision making body should set the tone with international football relations. They obviously don't and will continue to be useless.

Jack.

The thought process was to sit deep and let sevilla have the ball. Then when we won it dump it to fellani and have runners off him to pick up the balls.

Jack B, I'm not suggesting either one is right or wrong. Mourinho is totally free to do what he wants with his time. I'm hoping it opens up a bit of debate on the subject of our manager. I'm using the Russia Today and Catalonia Independence as two contrasting aspects in two totally different, ideologically opposed managers. I think it's an intriguing juxtaposition. Regards Mourinho and Russia Today: I don't know exactly how long he is contracted to work on the World Cup but, I would of hoped that either:1/ he'd be working hard on how to sort out the mess he's made for himself and get the best out this team or 2/ taking a break with his family, reflecting and recharging and getting ready to go again. Taking up this pundit position smacks of grubby money making and a chance to indulge his ego. I'm sure Guardiola will be on our screens during the summer. It will be interesting if he is wearing a little ribbon on his lapel. I'd feel the same if it was the BBC or ITV. I used to watch RT a lot. It's incredibly biased and one sided. To be honest though, it's no worse than Fox News in its right wing agenda.
I'm just trying to make a comparison between our manager and his main rivals actions. I think it's interesting, says something about both of their mindsets and is worthy of debate. I'm interested in what other posters think and value everyone's opinion.
People say you should keep politics out of sport but it isn't, unfortunately, as it is a global, money making machine and is used, unfortunately, for political means by every country.


6.) 16 Mar 2018 10:37:02
I'm still in a state regarding Tuesday night's result and it isn't going away anytime soon. Regarding his contract with a Russian broadcaster, frankly I do not care, the contract was signed before any of the current events had happened and he's free to ho our that contract as far as I'm concerned. One contract I'd love him to renege on would be the one he recently signed to continue to be Manchester United manager. Jose normally gets a rough press when it comes to comments that he's made but when it comes to comments that actually besmirch the club that pays his wages then they are curiously silent, José should have been given a serious dressing down by the hierarchy over his Porto, Real Madrid comments. It is one thing to bore us to death with the kind of inertia football he espouses but it is another when he disrespects the club and fans when doing so, José out!


7.) 16 Mar 2018 11:12:43
His post match comments I thought were far worse than the performance. Every manager gets their tactics wrong occasionally, and every team has a bad day at the office now and again.

So I could forgive that in isolation, however, those tactics and those kind of performances happen far too often.

But to come out when the fans are hurting after elimination from a major tournament and remind them of past eliminations and to insinuate that we got knocked out because of the mentality of the club and not Jose's failing was out of line.

It is that more than the defeat that will turn fans against him.

As for going to Russia for the world cup? I would kind of expect it from a club manager, a chance to watch other teams, other tactics and watch players the club maybe scouting in the flesh in a different team and how they adapt to that. I think that is vital for a top level club manager. I don't think politics should come into it.


8.) 16 Mar 2018 12:05:19
I don't no what he was thinking with his comments . Normally pretty good with the press but dropped the ball on this.


9.) 16 Mar 2018 14:13:25
Maybe we misinterpreted his comments, what he was trying to point out was his hat-trick of knocking United out of the UCL.

I think Max has the potential to be a good signing.
Good left foot and can cross a ball! Ed 002 mentioned him as an outside chance a month or so ago.

My missus has told me that a Brazilian might be on the cards for her before we go on our summer holidays this year.
I'd disappointed if she means Anderson, we're not going all inclusive!

I know it was quite a while back now but I often thought the signing of Fangzhou had one eye on tapping into the Asian market. I think he played once for United in 3 seasons and he was unfortunately dubbed the Chinese Rooney by some sections of the press. Talk about setting somebody up for failure.
Sorry Red, but I had to read your last two sentences a couple of times, were they edited out of an old Mind Your Language script?

Thanks for that Ed 002, Max would be an excellent buy for United. He would totally revitalise our left side. Shame it isn't likely, he's a good player and exactly what United need. Have a good day.

No stand out players? Mbappe? Pavard? Lloris? All been excellent for France.
I'm really enjoying this World Cup, thought it was going to be same old same old but plenty of good games.
England fluffed their lines, which was a real shame as the tournament opened up perfectly for them and they could of beat Croatia. I think Loftus-Cheek should of come on for Dier who I fail to see how he gets a place: very basic player in my opinion. Sterling is just another Walcott, he panics and makes bad decisions when he's done the hard work.
And we have got to stop It's Coming Home. It's a bloody awful song. How about Slade's Give Us A Goal. Or England Irie by Black Grape. If we we have to have a song, at least let's have no Skinner and Baddiel.

I'm not so sure about Kimmich. Looks a bit suspect defensively in my opinion. You're right about Brandt though. He is going to be one hell of a player.

Totally agree with you Park. I've travelled a fair bit and been to Morocco a few times. Incredibly friendly people. I've never been invited into so many people's homes to eat with the family. Either there or Sri Lanka. Great practical jokers in Morocco. Football crazy too.

You're right, the bigger picture is pretty grim. Ghana are a "good" example of how disorganised and corrupt the African federations can be. I really felt that team would make the final. And now, like you say, total chaos.
I was in Ghana in 2005. The country is football crazy. Sport generally actually. It's sad that they haven't been able to build on the achievements of 2010.
I think there is change happening in some federations. I'm hoping Cisse does well with Senegal.
Maybe if Morocco host 2026, the situation will have improved.

{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed, as it would benefit the game if all continents were better organised.}

It would be absolutely fantastic if an African team could win the World Cup. I love what the African teams bring to the tournament, not just the football but the culture. It's a shame that the federations seem to be so chaotic at times. But hopefully things are changing and it's good to see Africans coaching their respective national teams.
I'm hoping Nigeria cause a few upsets, Morocco as well.

Yellow Benteens

{Ed001's Note - things don't seem to be changing overall. Just look at what is happening in Ghana, with the FA there disbanded.}
