It breaks my heart to see city are being linked with Isco while we chase another 7ft player like decooure from Watford.

We are linked with Neymer, does that make you happy?


2.) 30 Mar 2018 12:14:37
I’d happily take Decourey. Good player who gives his all. Underrated.


3.) 30 Mar 2018 12:15:40
Because Doucoure plays for Watford doesn’t make him a poor standard of player. Tevez came to us from a loan at West Ham, lukaku from everton. How many times has signing a “world class” player actually worked out for us recently. Eg Di Maria, Falcao, Sanchez and pogba ain’t hit the heights yet.


4.) 30 Mar 2018 12:53:39
Where would they fit Isco in? Or they going to move on the lad they paid 60 mill for who barely plays.


5.) 31 Mar 2018 13:05:38
I think Ndidi at Leicester is other one for us to take a look at.

Isco is great, but if he was all that Madrid would keep the home grown golden boy

We need 2 full backs, a centre half and two central midfielders. Up top we have more than enough.


6.) 03 Apr 2018 13:39:29
Schmid,

So you believe the Isco to city rumours but ignore any rumours linking United to top players, anyone would think you are deliberately choosing to do that to be negative.


7.) 04 Apr 2018 01:59:55
Isco isn't home grown they bought him at a young age of malaga i think it was.

What a fantastic gesture by Ronaldo to offer all his hotels in Portugal to be turned into coronavirus hospitals during the ongoing pandemic. He's also offered to pay for all the doctors and nurses who work there. This is so important to Portugal as they don't have the resources or the manpower to handle all the cases if and when the spread becomes more prevalent over here.
Like the Italians and the Spanish, a lot of the Portuguese live under the same roof as their mums and dads and that makes it important that the young generation do not pass the virus to the older, more vulnerable generation.
So well done Christiano.

My Mrs. always hated Ronaldo, seeing him as incredibly narcissistic, but this has actually caused her to reevaluate!


2.) 16 Mar 2020 20:04:03
I think a lot of ‘hated’ players do a lot behind the scenes. Beckham and Rooney are 2 examples of players that step up with no fanfare and do their bit, I am sure there are plenty of others.


3.) 16 Mar 2020 20:23:39
Ronaldo has always been a love him or hate him sort of figure. If he has played for your side you probably love him. He does come across as arrogant on the pitch. He also fits the tall, hansome and rich criteria which apparently automatically makes you a toss pot.

Yet, his off field persona seem very different to what many think. He is a dedicated footballer, not drinking or smoking. Working hard training to improve and leading a healthy life style.

He is a dedicated family man, while he does a lot for charity. He also always makes an effort with fans, signing autographs and posing for pictures. He also looks after the mascots well, always having a few words for them and looking after them.

I remember hearing a story about a 6 year old mascot who got stage fright before walking out with Ronaldo. Cristiano knelt down and told the boy he was scared too, and would the boy hold his hand and look after him as they went out. Which instantly made the kid feel 10 feet tall, the boy even asked Ronaldo if he would be okay when it was time for the mascots to leave the field.

As well as being a top player, Ronaldo has grown in to a top man. His parents should be proud.


4.) 17 Mar 2020 01:32:07
This is so nice of him. Well done Ronaldo.


5.) 17 Mar 2020 04:48:19
Is this true? I though the hotels had denied it .
Great gesture if it.

In response to my post below, Noucamp stevie or whatever, no I'm not bored but I was questioning the decision making when some events are ongoing while others aren't. Also, tgevfact that our country in adversity, always carried on.
If it makes you feel better, I have actually set up a group over here to deliver food parcels to the old people who have been told to self isolate. So please stop being so critical all the time, its rude and tiresome and totally unwarranted.

Good man, who knows where this will all end? I think it’s dawning on everyone that ‘normal’ things have gone for now and we need to shift our perspective. I think millions will lose their jobs and businesses will fail, I don’t see any way this can be avoided. We all need to step up and look after those that are most vulnerable.


2.) 16 Mar 2020 23:51:54
I'm not going to argue with you Nomid, or AAA, or whatever, but your original post showed a ridiculous lack of perspective. I'm not going to apologise for criticising you for saying a game of football should go ahead to give you something to watch, while people are dying. You have no idea what people on here are going through with regard to this pandemic, and watching a game of football is way down most peoples' priorities.


3.) 17 Mar 2020 00:23:16
now to the bad side. the town i live in is quite small my ex missus went to the local sainsburys today to see the isles stripped bare. mohers looking for nappies and baby formular can not get any becaue of the tossers buying in baulk. but the worst was watching a little old lady having the toilet roll snatched out of her hands and the staff just watching. i hope these idiots in charge get it and die. i actually feel ashamed of were i live.

So out here in Portugal, the authorities have more or less closed everything. People are being told to stay at home. This is fair and sound advise. However, in order to keep people entertained I think the authorities in Europe as a whole (Italy apart) should have allowed the national league games to be played behind closed doors. The world cannot just stop, otherwise the same will happen in a few month's time.
But if our sportsmen are allowed to play football or do other sports all be it behind closed doors, then at least it will give the nation something to watch on tv. Televised sports in the UK is an amazing pastime and has millions of followers, so with care and organisation, I don't see why the games cannot be played behind closed doors and for them all to be televised.

Attack Attack Attack

{Ed004's Note - For a game to go again you need television crews, transport teams, maintenance workers, ball boys etc. All these people would have to be put at risk to keep a few people entertained. Then theres the footballers themselves. Why is it fair to risk their safety? But I think probably the biggest factor is for a game to go ahead you need police and ambulance crews on service. They will be required for the general population. We cant afford to have them sitting idle for hrs. I miss football as much as the next person but I feel like we have seen the end of the football season for the foreseeable}


1.) 15 Mar 2020 14:27:16
It's not ideal, but its what needs to be done. People don't realise the sheer number of people needed to broadcast a game. Plus the strain it puts on the emergency services which isn't really acceptable given the situation. When medical professionals are standing by at a football match people are dying due to there not being enough medical staff/ provisions.

Ed004 is on the money here. Get Netflix and count yourself lucky that you're not one of the vulnerable people who this might prove fatal for.


2.) 15 Mar 2020 14:45:01
i have just seen that players are being tested twice a day for the virus. i find that horrendus when ordinary people with sympoms are not tested and told to stay home and self isolate. it is starting to make me think why pay money to watch these over paid premadonas who are no different than you or i.

{Ed002's Note - No, they are being looked at for the symptoms twice a day. If they exhibit the symptoms then they are more likely to be tested.}


3.) 15 Mar 2020 15:47:22
They work for organisations that have dedicated medical departments. Of course they are going to be checked on for symptoms of a rapidly spreading virus more than someone who doesn't work for an organisation with a dedicated medical department.


4.) 15 Mar 2020 18:41:20
I understand that ed047, but at the same time we have Castleford and St Helens playing in a stadium full to the brim with fans. Cheltenham Vestival with thousands of fans every day, programmes like Ant&Dec with full audiences. So how are the decisions being made?
And now, you have people crammed inside supermarkets and emptying shelves of everything. Idiots.
But in the UK we've always risen to any challenge and made sure everyone's spirits remain high. It happened in the wars where actors, singers, entertainers risked their lives to ensure the lives of others was made better.
Closing the country down is not the answer.

{Ed004's Note - Those other events should have been cancelled as well imo. Not sure what the solution is for the panic buying but measures should be in place there as well. I just cant see any situation where it's fair or possible to have the season ongoing while this catastrophe is ongoing}


5.) 15 Mar 2020 20:31:08
We are in the middle of a global pandemic that is expected to kill a lot more people.

What kind of brain dead morons are going to these events as though its business as usual?

For old people like my mum of 78 catching this disease is like a death sentance. I have told my mother to treat this virus like it is ebola or the plague and act accordingly.

People need to wake up and start taking this seriously NOW!

Going to the bloody races? Give me strength.


6.) 15 Mar 2020 20:32:51
The season is over man, Ligue 1 and Serie A already in talks to cancel season.

I think the fairest thing to do is cancel season and start season the same as this season with everyone keeping same cup places etc.

I know it's unfair on the lower leagues, teams fighting for promotion and lower leagues losing out on money. At times like this the FA needs to take the right course of action.

Cancell full season.

Postpone euro 2020 for a year and hopefully everything has gone for new season to start because its only going to get worse in April and May.

This is an unprecedented situation. There are so many issues arising and the landscape seems to shift hourly.
There is health and economic situations arising that nobody could have had contingency plans for.
There are some tough and worrying times ahead for everybody in the short term.
With the right discipline and practises its possible that the world health and economic fallout is minimised.
Its often said that you can tell a lot about peoples character in times of adversity. Now is the time for all people to up their moral radars. To be more tolerant more caring more vigilant.

I'm in the middle of my self isolation and tbh it's been cathartic, I've read a couple of books got some bits and Bob's done around the house and generally have been very comfortable, my niece (an elderly care nurse) on the other hand has been pretty much working non stop for the last fortnight along with her colleagues, pretty much the same up and down the country so I realise how lucky some of us are.

Football is a sport, an entertainment it isn't important imo in the situation we find ourselves in, I could care less when the season starts up again or if liverpool win a title, its fluff we have much, much bigger fish to fry.

Why is Solskjaer going on about missing cl qualification will not impact on transfers, it's such a negative statement. He should be geeing up the players, not giving them an excuse to fail. Its pathetic. If that's the standard we're trying to achieve, then we're screwed.

Attack Attack Attack

AAA

This is a good season for Solskjaer, looks like he has managed to avoid relegation.

It shows a negative mindset, already thinking we won’t qualify.

The longer he stays the worse our position will be.


2.) 17 Feb 2020 15:41:46
It's so pathetic. And now, we have Shaw telling us that the press are harsh and comparing us to Arsenal.
Fred came out recently and said there's an ego problem, and Solskjaer shot him down in flames.
I think all the above show exactly why Solskjaer is so out of his depth. For gods sake, relieve him of his post before avoiding relegation becomes the new standard we aspire to.


 

 

02 Feb 2020 12:57:50
It's sad to see some are turning on AWB, Maguire and couple of the others. Ken pointed out below, that a lot of the players are going backwards. AWB didn't suddenly turn into a rubbish fullback. James showed great form at the beginning of the season.
However, one common denominator is that Solskjaer and the two clowns sat next to him, have suddenly decided that playing not to lose is the main objective, and that in turn has had a negative effect on the whole team.
Get them all out of the club now, and appoint anyone, even Shappy can do a better job, and
I mean no disrespect to Shappy. But the current management team is completely and utterly clueless.
They offer no passion, no tactical knowhow. We do have some good players, but this management team is not even getting 10% out of them.
Lastly, Solskjaer comes on week in week out to tell us how well we've played. Its insulting every fan's intelligence. When you see Klopp, Pep shouting instructions and urging their teams forward, then you look at our lot in the dugout, is it any wonder we're in the position we're in?

Attack Attack Attack

1.) 02 Feb 2020 13:22:53
TotallY agree AAA, Ole talks a negative game, saying things like we have to stay in the game, he sets up scared of the opposition, even at home. Negativity from the coaches obviously spreads to the players and affects confidence. Oles obsession with counter attack football no matter how the other team set up means we always have more men behind the ball than in attack. Its easy to defend against players when it is 2 or 3 on one because defenders don't have to deal with runners. I hold back from criticizing any player because it must be frustrating to play under these tactics. I could go on and on about Ole's incompetence but it just frustrates me. Until he is gone I expect nothing from this team.


2.) 02 Feb 2020 13:37:33
AAA - I haven't seen many posters criticising either Maguire or AWB other than giving an honest opinion on the roles they've been given in the team.

The truth is if Ole wants our full backs to provide width and attacking impetus similar to Liverpool or even Poch a few years ago at Spurs then AWB unfortunately at this moment in time lacks quality in attacking areas. Most will agree he's excellent in 1v1 situations but struggles going forward; however we knew this when we signed him.

The boy is still very young and raw but despite having some excellent attributes if he wants to be considered as one of the best full backs in the league then he must improve his attacking output.

We face a similar problem with Maguire, whilst he's excellent on the ball and in the air he lacks pace and agility. If we want to play a high line then unfortunately he'll be exposed on occasions.

Whilst I think both are very good players I'm just not convinced the way they are being asked to play best suits their attributes.


3.) 02 Feb 2020 13:56:44
Good post AAA.


4.) 02 Feb 2020 15:29:40
Dlib, AWB did attack at Palace, yet there seems to be a reason he's not going forward. In order for him to attack we have to keep possession, but unfortunately, solskjaer's tactics do not allow for that to happen. We have some very good players, but the management staff are not getting the most of them. In the words of Eric Morecambe "we're playing all the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order". That sums up our current plight.


5.) 02 Feb 2020 16:16:19
DLIB if you watched AWB last season, you could have seen he really wasn't good going forward, AAA he did not go forward much, I am not a big ole fan but to claim he was used in any form as an attacking outlet is just plain false, iirc most questioned his attacking ability when the signing was announced.

DLIB If ole wants his fb's to attack he needs to buy/ coach them better, he can't expect awb to put in great crosses, that's not his strength right now and if he wanted an attacking fb, may be he should have bought someone who was better in that department.


6.) 02 Feb 2020 17:24:30
I don't think he's as bad as people are making out. He seems to be the only one willing to try to get a goal.


7.) 02 Feb 2020 17:43:30
CSM - That's exactly my point mate. AWB is a very good full back but attacking isn't one of his strengths. Whilst in some regards he is a very good addition to the side if Ole wants our width and attacking impetus to come from the full backs which I believe he does then maybe the Club should have targeted a different kind of full back. Having said that at only 21 maybe Ole thought that his attacking instincts could be worked on and improved.

It's a similar position with Maguire. We were led to believe that Ole wanted his team to press from the front, be more dynamic and hold a higher defensively line. Unfortunately Maguire, although a very good player, doesn't quite have the pace or agility to play in a high defensive line and can sometimes be badly exposed when left isolated against fast and skilful forwards.

It curious to me that although both are very good players neither perhaps fit the profile of player required to implement Ole's preferred style of play.

I like the look of Fernandes but if he's going to play in the sane team with the likes of Mata and Pereira who all want to occupy the same space then sadly he'll be just another expensive mistake.

18 months on and nearly £200m invested in new players I still see no discernible style of play or system that is designed to get the best out of the players at his disposal.

1 win in 4 and without a goal in 270 minutes of premier league football is not indicative of a Team improving or heading in the right direction.


8.) 02 Feb 2020 18:38:26
Good post dlib mate. Veey good post. Awb is a top defender great 1v1 and in recovary tackles. In fact there is nobody better imo.
He was better for palace last season going forward he made runs with intent and did not turn inside consistenly. But as CSM said his delivery was poor and final ball was often a let down. That can be coached. It should be improving but it appears he is not allowed over lap and make attaching runs or take up streaking positions and make runs to break the lines. He did a lot mite of that at palace and with the correct coaching and under a coach with attacking intent he will imorove that side of his game.
Maguire needs a more stable partner imo. He has done ok. But again can do better.
Williams must be 1st choice for me on the other side ahead of Shaw i can actually see Williams breaking into the england squad if he plays weekly.
Mctom Williams pogba will be back soon so we should see some energy return to the team .
Im a big martial critic. Just don't like anything about him on the pitch. I recognise he has a lot of talent with a football but he is a bit fur coat no knickers for me.
Ighalo will provide some energy and experience up front at least. I'm sure he will be giving it his all and i'd rather see that and i'm sure those in midfield will appreciate a willing runner.
Dalot can make an impact.
Once we have a decent coaching team with a positive approach looking to improve players we will be fine.


9.) 03 Feb 2020 02:02:01
In that case, bearing in mind Solskjaer wants to play with attacking full backs, and if AWB is rubbish at going forward, then why did Solskjaer buy him?


10.) 03 Feb 2020 13:00:00
I thought in Saturdays game AWB made a few decent runs and got to the line but unfortunately his crossing isn't the greatest at the moment and does need working on. He very nearly created the winner when Dalot headed wide.

Beast, you called it absolutely right. If De Gea hadn't made unbelievable saves, we will be looking at a 2 or 3 nil scoreline. I hate the passionless, clueless displays. I hate the lack of cohesion in the team. This result is not a good result, one goal for Seville and we have to score two. Even if we score first, we will still be extremely nervous.
I would say it is advantage Seville.
But the most ridiculous post i'd the one from 12daysofhemida. "A huge amount of us have got used to success", "We have to be practical we are still in a rebuilding phase", "Short termism and harking back to the good old days do not benefit the club". These are exactly the type of comments that drive me potty. How could you get too used to success? So shall we have a few years of rubbish performances as we don't want to be to used to success? Utter tripe. Then he mentions we are still rebuilding, we have been rebuilding for five years. A good business doesn't allow its performance to deteriorate, then start rebuilding. All the top clubs are in a constant state of rebuilding. Harking back to the old times? History is what defines you, and history is what you learn from and improve. So when you talk about harking back to the old times, you're basically telling us that we might as well throw away our history.
If you allow standards to drop and mediocrity to set in, then we might as well pack our bags and go home. That's not the philosophy of the club I've supported for over 50 years. we were built on attacking entertaining football with all the right values. Unfortunately, we are losing these values.

Red Man, northern Italy suffered as the weather is colder than the south part. But the reason it spread to so many people is that the Italians generally live a family life in flats and buildings with stairs so they will be holding bannisters as well as living in more compact places where the virus is at its worst. This is the problem that has been identified by the Italian authorities.

Shappy, lingard has been nothing short of disaster in his no10 roll. Bruno has created and scored more in 5 games than Lingard has done in 2 years. He is rubbish and that's a fact.
Will we see a queue for his services from the elite clubs? No chance. Running around like a headless chicken is not what football is about. Watch Xavi and Iniesta and you realize you don't have to be a marathon or sprinter to be the best at football. Lingard is an unintelligent player, he has the attribute of being able to run for 90mins, but he doesn't know what to do with it.
Finally, during 2 years when his performances have been truly abysmal, he seems to be concentrating more on his fashion label and social media than his football. Call me old fashioned, but I think he's got his priorities completely wrong. Football first, fame second, I think Mr Lingard might have these the wrong way. And sadly, I can't see that changing.
