Hi ed002.
I know you don't like providing updates but thought i'd ask if any clubs are showing interest in some of the players that we would like to move on this summer?
Darmian rojo sanchez tfm in particular?
Secondly do you think inter will be able to make an acceptable offer for lukaku and get a deal done?

ken

{Ed002's Note - Darmian could end up at Inter but he is down the list. Rojo is limited in which countries he can move to which means he will be used in horse trading if they can. Nothing has changed with Sanchez.}


1.) 02 Jul 2019 20:01:56
Ed002 thank you.
To be fair you did say they would bee hard to shift.
Did you miss the second question or just choose to ignore it hooing i'd take the hint? 😁.

{Ed002's Note - Inter would like to include players.}


2.) 03 Jul 2019 22:36:32
Cheers. Pity its the wrong players. Probably be three case with pogba do i'd imagine with juve and real Madrid looking to move some players on.


 

 

01 Jun 2019 10:00:55
I was told this morning by the same person that told me about lukaku and lindelof before they signed that fernandes from SL will be joining us.
He has also told me that he is not the only expected arrival from Portugal.
He has said that the club have already agreed 2 signings and are looking at a minimum of 5 players with 2 agreed and 2 very close.
This guy is working in the legal sector and has never once given me inaccurate info and has worked with the club for / with the last 8 years.
I think the last time i posted on his info was the signing of herrera which he says was very complicated.
Issues remain with being unable to move some unwanted players on.

ken

{Ed004's Note - If we are signing 5 players hopefully be a rb cb cdm cm and attacker. Hopefully, you are right Ken}


1.) 01 Jun 2019 10:38:01
Please let this be true Ken.


2.) 01 Jun 2019 10:43:18
Ken

Thanks, I wonder if Fernandes being purchased would prevent any possibility of interest in James Maddison. If so, it’s a pity as Maddison looks to have good potential and I understand he is also a United fan which is an added bonus in the motivation stakes. I haven’t seen Fernandes but is he the player we need when our Manager seemed to be heading in a different direction? Yes stats are useful but don’t tell the whole picture and seem to recall you are more in touch with Portuguese football so interested in your opinion.


3.) 01 Jun 2019 10:57:09
Interesting Ken, If I was to guess the second player from Portugal I would say Ruben Dias of Benfica is most likely.

Red Man, that might be the case. I'm not sure Maddison has ever been high on the clubs wanted list. Which is a real shame as he could be an excellent signing for us.

Although if Ole wanted to introduce his 4222 style system than Gary Neville said he was keen on while taking his badges then we could sign sign BOTH Fernandes and Maddison and play them both in the advanced midfield two behind the strikers. That would be mouth watering and we would provide hat fulls of chances for our strikers.


4.) 01 Jun 2019 11:12:32
Any info on the other players Ken?

{Ed004's Note - Id guess the 2nd player is Felix. Both players have been heavily linked and Ed2 has mentioned our interest in both}


5.) 01 Jun 2019 10:57:09

6.) 01 Jun 2019 11:36:22
Thanks for passing on the info Ken. Must say that is very exciting news! Hope it’s true.


7.) 01 Jun 2019 12:07:06
He was sure on fernandes and i know not to ask him names as tells me as much as he can. He often has no idea of what's going on unless he has some involvement in a professional capacity.
No idea on what positions or on who the 2nd player targeted from Portugal is. But its not as far down the line as fernandes obviously
He did say that there was efforts Being made to move players on again no names.
This guy is not even a big football fan and he supports Charlton😱.


8.) 01 Jun 2019 12:49:50
I'd say one of the two already agreed is James. No idea on the other or the second from Portugal.

Maddison is a good player but why would Leicester sell their best player.


9.) 01 Jun 2019 12:56:13
So hypothetically if the club is looking to bring in 5 players and we know the areas of concern (rb, cb, dm, cam, RW) this could mean.
James - RW
Fernandes - CAM
Diaz - CB
That leaves rb and dm
Rice and AWB anyone?


10.) 01 Jun 2019 14:51:36
If Fernandes comes in, would that mean Pogba is closer to leaving?


11.) 01 Jun 2019 15:01:23
Rumour of the window so far! Like it Ken.

That would be a cracking summer of business Perth.
Still feel we need a quality striker.


12.) 01 Jun 2019 15:21:05
Rave, it would be a huge step in the right direction in terms of reducing the squad age, bringing in more British talent and fixing some of our issues. But we know it can’t all be done in one window as has been discussed. I think we would need another CM and possibly a striker as you say in the January window or next summer.


13.) 01 Jun 2019 16:35:39
Meunier and one of Saul or Longstaff depending on if Pogba leaves.


14.) 01 Jun 2019 17:43:57
Thanks for sharing Ken.


15.) 01 Jun 2019 11:39:30
Not sure about the logic of signing both felix and fernandes in terms of how they both fit into one team. Both seem to prefer playing behind a main striker in a no 10/ second striker role.

Fernandes would be a good buy and important to get him in early as we all know the pogba madrid links will drag on through the summer. So good to get a potential replacement before all that if true.


16.) 01 Jun 2019 14:18:49
Hope you are right Ken, be a good signing Bruno Fernandes and hope you are right Ed on Joao Felix.
Wan Bissaka
de Ligt
Fernandes
Felix
James

That’s be a great summer.


17.) 01 Jun 2019 19:29:45
Joao Felix would be a terrific signing.
Front 3 of Rashford, James and Felix would be extreme pace.
With Bruno Fernandes behind them.
Mouth watering on paper.


18.) 01 Jun 2019 22:16:23
Great stuff Ken. Love when someone pulls out a rumour like that.


19.) 01 Jun 2019 22:54:04
Ken, I will track you down if this is bull 😁.


20.) 02 Jun 2019 05:41:44
I don’t see us getting Fernandes and Felix for the reasons you say DSG and that we have stated we are looking for young British talent. So buying Meunier, Fernandes, Felix, De Ligt contradicts that statement UNLESS we buy some good cheap prospects as well (Collins, Longstaff, R. James etc) to blood into the team over the next couple of years.
I am also confident that like a young Ronaldo, Felix could live on the RW for now allowing Fernandes to control/ support the attack from a central position.
In fact Rashford/ Martial/ Greenwood centrally with D James and Felix switching flanks regularly with Fernandes in support could be very dynamic and the sort of attack Ole has talked about creating.


21.) 02 Jun 2019 06:42:16
Rashford felix James?
Hardly mouthwatering.


22.) 02 Jun 2019 09:30:45
Cheers Ken, your post sort of refreshed this page.


23.) 02 Jun 2019 10:30:10
Love this, Ken. I proper rumour from who sounds like a reliable source.

I’d be happy with what most are suggesting however, I honestly think we need 2 CBs, one with significant experience. The club’s intentions to restructure the team around youth is inspiring, but we still need a leader in this team.


24.) 02 Jun 2019 12:58:28
@Shappy

What about Felix and Fernandes in a 4222? Lingard, Gomes as backups?


25.) 02 Jun 2019 13:01:10
Stevie ill come quietly😂.


26.) 02 Jun 2019 13:21:11
Best bit of info I've seen on here in ages Ken.

Nice one 👍.


27.) 02 Jun 2019 13:24:36
Maybe not to you 83.


28.) 02 Jun 2019 15:10:04
if fernandes is coming here, he isn't really doing the best pr job right now. Fanboy comments on pep, drooling over liverpool. Not exactly the smartest play for a guy who might sign for utd.


29.) 02 Jun 2019 15:22:42
I read the same comments, I think it’s typical gernalist spin. What he said was he prefers Liverpool’s style of play. Dynamic, fast paced, exciting. As opposed to City’s possession, slow build up style.
This is not dissimilar to what Ole has spoken about how he wants united to play.
This may be one reason he chooses United over City.


30.) 02 Jun 2019 17:32:39
Thanks Ken for sharing this information.

Has given me a much needed Utd lift!


31.) 03 Jun 2019 10:42:13
Nice one KEN. Let us know if you get anything else.

Fernandes, Felix from Portugal. AWB for RB. Ndombele for DM/ CM along side Pogba with Fernandes in front. AND a CB.

Would be a fantastic summer.


 

 

26 Apr 2019 18:06:06
Jose might end up at inter and come in for lukaku🤗.

ken

1.) 27 Apr 2019 11:39:42
I doubt that considering he doesn't like lukaku.


2.) 27 Apr 2019 15:11:54
Crazy he bought him then? 🤔🤔.


3.) 27 Apr 2019 18:08:00
Did he though?


4.) 27 Apr 2019 19:55:18
Cryptic hour on the Man Utd rumours page.


 

 

25 Apr 2019 00:24:54
Whatever our opinions on players ole and the club appear to be committed to rash and martial. So how does he get the best out of them. next season.
Should they both be competing for the no9 position so its a case of one or the other?
Could we see them play as a pair?

ken

1.) 25 Apr 2019 01:24:55
Keep Rashford, sell Martial, who is lazy and sulks whenever he or the team faces adversity.


2.) 25 Apr 2019 05:46:50
How do we get the best out of them? Playing them as a pair would be nice to see and hopefully they could develop a partnership.

Being less cowardly on the ball would help as well, we should be able to introduce more sophisticated patterns of play rather than just hoofing it long or knocking it down the channel. Its the easy way out and top players are usually much more brave on the ball.

Also if we can get someone to play on the right or even at least just stand on the right that is some sort of threat as a professional football player then that should draw some focus away from that left hand side and create more space for those two.


3.) 25 Apr 2019 06:14:34
One of the problems last night was zero support from midfield, especially the first half. Every time Rashford or Lingard had the ball they only had each other to pass to making our play very predictable. We need better, hard working players. Roll on summer.


4.) 25 Apr 2019 07:27:24
I don’t think either are good enough to lead the line and both should be competing for the left hand side role.


5.) 25 Apr 2019 07:59:25
The other problem yesterday was that one of them was being selfish. Even the commentators saw it and spoke out when there was a more deadly pass on in the first half but the striker turned towards the right and subsequently killed the move. Should have seen the look in the other ones face, supposedly they are best friends off field. Some need to understand that shooting from a 100 yards out will not get you goals every time, it happens once in a 100 chances.


6.) 25 Apr 2019 08:41:11
Sell Lukaku and bring in Piatek or Jovic. Give Martial another year and see how he performs.


7.) 25 Apr 2019 09:44:00
I personally believe that if we sell Pogba, this will have a big impact on certain players, in particular Martial, Rashford and Lingard.

I get the impression that Pogba is the big personality who people follow and despite his obvious talents, I just don't think he has the right attitude.

If Pogba is sold, I can see Martial, Rashford and Lingard becoming more focused and improving, in particular Martial.


8.) 25 Apr 2019 10:01:16
Personally I like the idea of playing a 4312/ 3412 with split strikers and a floating No.10. We don't have any wingers, while we have several strikers and No.10's.

That way we can have Martial, Rashford, Lukaku and Greenwood as our four striker options.

Lingard, Andreas Pereira and Angel Gomes as No.10's. Plus maybe one other signed in the summer. Bruno Fernandes maybe.

Then sell Pogba and bring in two midfielders, NDombele being one.


9.) 25 Apr 2019 10:17:16
agree shappy. bruno with a midfield of ndombele and say neves would be brilliant.


10.) 25 Apr 2019 11:23:48
Although Martial has frustrated the s**t out of me, I would still like to see him given a run as striker, Rash has had plenty of games there but Martial has barely had a chance as striker. I do believe he is our best finisher.


11.) 25 Apr 2019 11:49:38
Although Martial is a good finisher, he doesn't offer enough off the ball movement.
I would like to see a midfield of Bruno, Saul and Declan Rice.


12.) 25 Apr 2019 12:38:23
I'd go either 352 or 4312 as our wide options are horrific. But 2 upfront could get the best out of martial and maybe even Sanchez.


13.) 25 Apr 2019 14:40:27
What do people see in Martial I don't someone please tell me its frustrating the (swear word) out of me. Why does Martial get the mention that he deserves a run in the side as a number 9 or a pair with someone else, why?

I can list many many reasons why he shouldn't been given a run.
Yes let's give a free run a test maybe to see how it goes and if it doesn't work out we have out answer don't we. All the while whilst that free test doesn't work out we are losing games and points so the little test can be conducted.
All the while when he does actually play he can't be bothered and his effort is ZERO. Yes he deserves a run in the side doesn't he?


14.) 25 Apr 2019 14:53:46
Martial gets away with it because he hasn't been given a run in the strikers position.

As soon as he gets the run and if he doesn't perforn then he will get criticised.

I do have my doubts over his attitude as he looks like one of them players that cries a lot if nothing goes right for him.


15.) 25 Apr 2019 15:41:03
I don't know maybe because he is the best finisher at the club. Yes he doesn't work hard enough. But that is much less of a problem for a striker than a winger.

The biggest problem we have had over the last month is not finishing the chances we have made. I would argue that had Martial had the same chances he would have scored at least 70% of them.

That's not to say Martial is the answer to all our problems. Just that is might not hurt to give our best finisher a chance as a striker during a tough spell where we can't seem to finish our chances.


16.) 25 Apr 2019 15:43:36
Simple answer FZZ. Martial is more talented and a more natural striker with that instinct for goal then the person currently leading the line. For me, Lukaku should lead the line, if not, then Martial. But the problem is that he can't be bothered to play. His head seems elsewhere and it has been since his 9 was given to Zlatan. Never seen such a reaction to a jersey being changed.


17.) 25 Apr 2019 16:40:51
I dunno David Mellors was funny.


18.) 25 Apr 2019 17:40:55
What a load of Tosh UA, no i am not having what you said or agree with. He isn't the best finisher, he's not a best at anything apart from looking like he hates playing football.


19.) 25 Apr 2019 18:30:27
Play Herrera every game this season and the team will click.


20.) 25 Apr 2019 19:15:51
I like Shappy's idea of the 3-4-1-2. I admit that Martial does have the talent and could thrive if he played with Rashford. Would Lukaku want to stay as 3rd choice? Not sure. This setup would allow Greenwood to get more minutes as well.

Lingard would be a natural in the #10 position. It would take advantage of his greatest quality, which is movement off the ball. But I think we need someone more explosive and dangerous on the ball. Someone that can run with the ball and ride some tackles. Bruno Fernandes might fit very well there.


21.) 25 Apr 2019 22:53:10
Martial frustrates me so much.
I don't like watching him play and i would hate to play with him.
But he is a good finisher.
I would like to see him given the chance up front for an extended run as a striker. To see if he can do it. Particularly as nobody else is scoring when there.
2 up front would possibly suit all our strikers
None have been prolific while playing as the sole striker.
But with no defence and little creativity from midfield its tough to play 2 up top.


22.) 25 Apr 2019 23:44:45
He hasn't done anything to deserve a run up front Ken.

Maybe if he actually tried to look bothered i wouldn't be against it but until he starts putting some effort in he doesn't deserve LB in the changing rooms.


 

 

31 Mar 2019 09:48:54
Fresh its anyones guess at this stage.
I would imagine there are question marks over the following
Darmian valencia rojo mata herrera jones sanchez bailly ddg and pogba.
Of course all won't go although in reality i would not be over concerned about any leaving except pogba and ddg.
Wages are the issue so in order to buy we need to get some wages off the books naturally.
Selling some of the above is an issue because of their inflated wages so its not as simple as it looks.
Mata and herrera can possibly go on free transfers. Herrera may stay but its a 30m commitment from the club for a squad player approaching 30 doesn't seem like a good call to me mata likewise.
Ddg can't even command a top fee now going into the last year of his contract.
Valencia is being released darmian and rojo hold little value and we will have to pay sanchez off.

ken

1.) 31 Mar 2019 15:11:21
I don't think bailly or jones will leave and i agree don't want to see dsg and pogba leave.

I think there is something in rumours that ole is happy with the options at cb whether people like it or not.

Could see two signings at CM and none at the back.


2.) 31 Mar 2019 21:48:39
If he is happy with the CB options he must still think he is managing Molde.


3.) 31 Mar 2019 22:28:08
Frankly with our current club structure and management we won't be able to compete with Real Madrid and Bayern when it comes to recruiting the best new players. Zidane will have made sure he can decide who they sign and Bayern are very well run and have a big budget. We are going to struggle to hold on to our best two players in DE Gea and Pogba and we have Sanchez to sort out room. Ole has his work cut out.


4.) 01 Apr 2019 10:43:01
With our current wage structure, basically maxed out, we are backed into a corner anyway.

We need to get rid of overpaid players and probably focus on cost efficient signings (wage wise) compared to Kroos or Bale etc.

We simply can’t afford to trade Pogba for Kroos and Bale, as we don’t have the wiggle room to pay the wages needed.


5.) 01 Apr 2019 13:26:56
We could do without Bale and Kroos anyway. Bale would play 25 games a season and command a silly wage. Kroos doesn't work hard enough and I can see him struggling in the Prem. He's excellent on the ball but doesn't fit Ole's desire of being one of the most hard-working teams in the league.

I hope the days of Blockbuster signings are over and we go back to signing younger players with desire to reach the very top.

14 Aug 2019 09:13:24
Good morning ed001, thought i'd ask on here as opposed to the red button.
There was some good points raised about the new rule change of being able to recieve the ball from the keeper inside his area now.
Personally i think this is a good rule change. It encourages more playing out from the back. Which is what most want to see.
But it makes the high press moor difficult imo. As the press now needs to be 15 yards further forward at times and that leaves bigger gaps to play around the press.
If teams press higher but don't fully commit or someone is not pulling their weight then its easier to play around.
It was very evident in 4 or 5 games at the weekend. Watching defenders and keepers play in their own box and along the dead ball line scares the be jeezuz out of some but i think its s better spectacle for the fans.
It will be interesting to see how the high pressing teams cope with it and also how teams expose those pressing teams by having the courage and technique and confidence to play around them.
I think its a simple rule change but Monday have quite an impact on the game as a whole and a very positive impact at that.
There will be more end to end action as a result imo.
What are your thoughts mate?

ken

{Ed001's Note - you are right, a lazy press will be more easily exposed, but there is also the chance of it turning the game back to long ball football. Any ball pinged over the top by a team with a quick striker is going to be deadly now. There is no need to be accurate as there is 50 yards of space to hit. So a team can just draw in the press and lump it. Mourinho will love it!}


1.) 14 Aug 2019 09:36:12
That's a possibility on occasion but that's pretty easy to defend against.
There will be some cheap goals given away due to errors at the back. Thank god smalling has been put out to grass.


2.) 14 Aug 2019 13:03:39
If hitting 50 yard balls into space is the way the games going to go then we have the ideal assistant manager in Phelan. We also have the right coach in Carrick to show the team how hit that ball with a semblance of accuracy. The guy making the calls at Old Trafford is a visionary and ahead of his time!

{Ed001's Note - oh maybe you have hit on something there Oak! Suddenly Phelan and Carrick make total sense. Get Pulis and Allardyce in and you will dominate Europe.}


3.) 14 Aug 2019 13:25:19
Did anybody else notice the two Chelsea centre backs constantly stood on the 18 yard line on goal kicks like they weren't allowed in the area?

Is it case of them not understanding the rule change?


4.) 14 Aug 2019 14:27:24
I doubt that is the reason wazza. Maybe they just didn't want to play in their own box.
Zuma is like smalling in that regard i. e. totally hopeless. He doesn't want the ball anywhere near his own box unless its 7ft in the air.


5.) 14 Aug 2019 15:03:51
Wazza,

Also at one point Christensen waited for the ball to leave the area before he touched it, old habits die hard I guess, or as you say, not understood the rules yet.


6.) 14 Aug 2019 16:31:11
Ed01 did you ever the the football manager experiment with allardyce and pulis? I think it was Squawka a few years ago. They put them at Madrid and Barcelona then put it on holiday an let the season play our. Interesting to say the least.

{Ed001's Note - no mate never even heard of that, what happened?}


7.) 14 Aug 2019 15:25:45
Ken, I’m not sure what difference it would make being stood 1 yard inside the box. What I mean is they stood right on the line, as if they couldn’t step into the box.

Yes GDS2 that’s what I was thinking. It might take some players a while to adapt to the new rules.


8.) 14 Aug 2019 17:29:08
Unfortunately the link no longer works. They both won trophies. Pulis romped la liga with Barcelona an big sam took Madrid to the champions league I think.

{Ed001's Note - Allardyce did say he would win everything if he managed Madrid.}

Ed, me and you would win everything if we managed they fantastic Real players too lol, just hearing the names Pullis and Allerdyce brings me out in a cold sweat, their tactics would get football stopped.

{Ed001's Note - sadly both are likely to be back in the game soon!}


11.) 14 Aug 2019 23:22:56

14 Aug 2019 09:01:07
Hi Syd. How's things?
Its a tough fixture.
Hostile crowd completely different style and shape to Chelsea.
They do carry a goal threat and their midfield is a strength of their side.

Good challenge to have at this time of the season. Confidence is high and i think we will go and win the game. It won't be easy.
We will be dominated in terms od possession against well over half three teams in the epl.

ken

1.) 14 Aug 2019 09:37:47
I'm good thanks Ken, hope you are okay? Yes I agree with all of that. We did have good spells in those games against Wolves, but didn't make the most of it. I feel we need to take our chances on Monday. I want to see Martial be more clinical in attack when he is central. He is afraid to let himself go and almost acts to casual. I'd love to see him be a bit more headless chicken sometimes. I suspect him and Rashford will switch it up again. Hopefully Pogba keeps the ball better and still plays his sweet killer passes. Hope his head doesn't go down when/ if he doesn't get his move.


2.) 14 Aug 2019 10:52:22
Im good syd thanks.
Yeah i think pog will knuckle down for the season. I had my doubts and we will only be able ro judge his reaction if we have a dodgy spell.

No point sulking it won't change the situation.

Wolves are good but have a bit of churn players wise and not settled yet. Patchy pre season and i think we have them at the right time.
That's enough positivity for one day syd we don't want to be accused of that. 😂.


3.) 14 Aug 2019 11:52:27
Yeah I'm hoping we have them at the right time too. But they will be beaming with confidence after our recent record against them.


4.) 14 Aug 2019 12:41:33
1st home game too for them so the place will be buzzing for the visit if united.
I don't care what anybody says all clubs want to beat united even more so than city and liverpool. Its all other clubs biggest match of the season with the possible exception of Everton.


 

 

12 Aug 2019 10:29:26
Ogs pogba ferdinand and carrick have all been speaking about the impact maguire has had in a week. Players look up to him and he is a seen as a leader writhing the group already. All very complimentary about his leadership qualities and skills.
I am very confident he will grow in to his role at United and be our captain for many seasons to come.

Yes Ken. He looked very assured on the back.
Both Lindelof and Maguire doesn't panic and are extremely confident on the ball.
Because of this, the midfielders don't need to come deep to collect the ball.

I got to say Maguire impressed me yesterday but that was a poor Chelsea. There are tougher tests ahead but this looked promising.

Another huge positive out of yesterday's game which appears to have gone totally unnoticed.

Tuanzebe named on the bench ahead of Smalling, Jones and Rojo is very encouraging.

All of them are fit, yet Tuanzebe was Ole's choice. A little thing, a player who didn't even get on the pitch. Yet how pleasing to see the club moving on from our terrible recent defensive past.

Ken, I mentioned this a few weeks back when people were saying we should go for Dias from Benfica or Milenkovic from Fiorentina for half the price.
With Maguire, we were buying someone who was going to fit straight in. You could see it with the England set up last summer, he came across as a leader. One of the lads who was involved in everything during the World Cup. Every man and his dog know that £80 million is a silly amount of money but I reckon the fee will be forgotten about by the end of the season and Maguire will be United captain.

If he continues to play like that the fee will be forgotten about .

Keane is an awful coach and manager. Great player great pundit but no idea how to manage a football team.

Would you believe the class of 92 had more players than butt neville x2 scholes and becks.
Should we have kept them all shappy?
Or just the ones that proved themselves good enough.

I mean russle beardsmore would have been better than messi if we had given him another 5 year contract.

{Ed047's Note - if Lingard was playing for another club, 100% you would not want him and you’d be deriding that clubs fan base if they tried to say he was any good.

Agree Stevie they are not a great side at all. Well drilled and coached a couple of top players good togetherness. But only out of the championship over a year.
To be in as much control as we were but to only mystery 2 sorts on target and create virtually no clear cut chances in the game is a concern.
Good that we are better and have more intensity and look better at the back but creating chances is not improved 1 bit. In fact its disimproved on our opening 2 games last year so let's not get carried away.

There is a coaching phase around that new buzz word verticle pass jred but people need to understand it before spouting nonsense about it. It actually was extracted from NFL coaching.

Yeah 3 new players plus martial and jessie moved positions from there old positions. Mctom has replaced matic in the team also so its very different. That's only going on wolves game.

You don't belive shots are a good way of judging attacking intent
You don't believe goals are a good way of judging a cf
You don't think winning trophies is a good way to judge a manager
You don't think winning medals is a good way to judge a players success

Each to their own but they are the universally accepted measurements by most.

Jred no doubt we have looked better half the team has changed.
The style is more progressive and attacking.
But the fact is we had half the amount of shots on goal and half the amount on target v the same game last season . Each game is different but to suggest there are no 'verticle' passes available is nonsense.
