Our captain is once again innocent until proven guilty, good news I am sure you will all agree, if he has done what he was 'convicted' of within 3 days then fair enough, but I would like to base my judgment on a fair trial, a lot of what is being said doesn't ring true, fingers crossed Harry is telling the truth.

GDS2

{Ed047's Note - your captain is guilty of a number of offences and is attempting to get those convictions over turned on appeal.

I’m not sure why you think all available evidence can’t be available for someone to go to trial when it clearly isn’t a complex case.


1.) 26 Aug 2020 17:56:17
Ed047 - no, he’s factually innocent as of right now.

{Ed047's Note - not until you successfully appeal


2.) 26 Aug 2020 18:08:13
47 you sound like you have an agenda sometimes. It's a fact that he is innocent until proven guilty. The whole thing was a farce from the start, his legal team were given a 50 page dossier of allegations and given hours to prepare, which is unheard of. On appeal it will be dropped, I am willing to stake money on it. What sort of prosecution lawyer implies that if Maguire issues an apology the case could be dropped? The whole judicial system in Greece is very wish washy, I know from first hand experience. There is also a train of thought that he was given an automatic guilty verdict because the judge was annoyed he wasn't there to give evidence. Its a joke.

{Ed047's Note - jesus! 🤦‍♂️an agenda, to what exactly?


3.) 26 Aug 2020 18:59:13
Ironic his legal defence is as shoddy as his actual defending.


4.) 26 Aug 2020 19:18:15
You have to take the Greek judicial system at face value. Deciding that it's a corrupt system yet a rich celebrity can't bribe his way out of trouble is quite contradictory.

Because you've heard stories in Greece of police being corrupt does not mean for one second that the whole system is corrupt.

No one has an agenda against him. I'm sure many of us have gotten into scuffles or fights on a night out, what I'd imagine most havnt done is assaulted a police officer and then attempted to bribe them.

Something tells me if his appeal is denied and it is a guilty verdict, many just won't believe it.


5.) 26 Aug 2020 18:21:48
I just read your posts and they're always seemingly wanting a bite or just anti United. Maybe I'm wrong but that's the way they come across.

He's legally innocent until proven guilty, the appeal has been accepted and on retrial it'll be overturned I'm certain.

The system in Greece is very wishwashy, they take disrespectful comments or actions very seriously and move cases along at speed accordingly.

Its a joke system, my parents were born there. From what has been released there is very little to prove him guilty apart from the word or 3 officers and no I know how bent the Greek authorities can be.

{Ed047's Note - I’ll take your word for it SAF and because I don’t agree or have a differing opinion that a particular poster might not like doesn’t mean I’m looking for bites.

The posters on this page are so up and down with your team as before Bruno arrived everyone was garbage now his arrival and 3rd place and you are imminent world beaters, I’m like woah, lets not run before you can walk.

No agenda at all.


6.) 26 Aug 2020 18:27:00
Ed,

Our captain is innocent, as per the law in a Greece, I don’t expect you to accept you’re wrong but at least I know you are.

{Ed047's Note - unlike your good self I’ve been wrong loads of times and never to big to admit so if that’s the case in Greece ideal.


7.) 26 Aug 2020 20:37:16
SAF the PSG fans who were arrested on Sunday were trailed today, some countries just don't linger on minor cases.


8.) 27 Aug 2020 05:16:37
saf20 pretty much on the money there.


9.) 27 Aug 2020 06:50:54
World beaters ED047? Personally, I think we have a team half full of panel beaters!

{Ed047's Note - Betty there’s little doubt you have some quality mate but you have a long way to go to get up with the current big two.

Like the rest of us and I don’t even want to think what we have in our team! 🤦‍♂️🤣


10.) 27 Aug 2020 07:00:49
47 I'm under no illusions about where we are and the backlash on here when we lose is laughable. We are a good team, on our day we can beat anyone but we lack consistency, I think some of our players get unfair criticism from posters and Eds alike but that's just because it's United they're playing for.

Ludwig had they been Greek nationals it would have been dragged out. Foreign folk are treated differently but the law in Greece.

{Ed047's Note - SAF that’s where I think you are a little wrong when it becomes just because it’s United.

You’ve kind of developed a siege mentality since Fergie left because things have gone wrong and become precious over any signs of improvement in the way you play.

In honestly have you looked head and shoulders above the few teams below in the football everyone has played this season.

I would say 100% no. I have to be equally realistic with Arsenal and it’s not like I can brag or make big of how much better than you we are or even if we too have the right manager in place.


11.) 27 Aug 2020 07:03:02
I would be quiet about speaking facts Jred 😉 we should immediately hang, draw and quarter Harry and his friends.

{Ed047's Note - I have zero interest in hanging Maguire SAF just not a fan of condoning what he did, if it turns out to be what he did.


12.) 27 Aug 2020 08:55:24
Ed I honestly believe that. Because of the success we had over a sustained period and the fact a lot of people didn't like that we had all the money until Chelsea came along we are hated by many, that's just the way it is.

If Aubamayangadingdong has a few bad games it would be brought up but in the way pogba or a Martial does. That's just because United sell papers and get clicks etc.

Agreed on the siege mentality but I think my first point about rival fans hating us is the reason why.

And I also agree that apart from a sustained period after lockdown we were no better than Arsenal or Spurs, certainly no better than Chelsea.

{Ed047's Note - I think the hatred was in part to how a lot of United fans behaved during that period too SAF, it’s the age old saying of how you treat people on the way up is normally how you get treated on the way down.

It’s natural to be euphoric when you’re winning and a few of the Liverpool guys are now going over board but I guess some can’t help it.

Xhaka went through it to when he got pelters for walking off the pitch at the Emirates. Press and fans are a nightmare! 🤣

Ultimately we’re all trying to get back to the top, you’ve not made a great fist of it so far and we’re currently following the same path.

Let’s hope we get both the players we want and starting getting back up there in the mix mate because it’s been way too long for both clubs.


 

 

21 Aug 2020 21:54:06
So Young, Sanchez and Lukaku aren't any better than us after all then.

GDS2

1.) 21 Aug 2020 22:04:49
I reckon we would have beaten them had we got to the final. Chuffed for Sevilla though what a performance.


2.) 21 Aug 2020 23:00:16
That's an immature post from you gds.


3.) 21 Aug 2020 23:35:51
It’s just a bit of banter on a banter page rover, you’ll get over it.

I agree we probably would have won that game tonight, Inter nowhere near the level people have been talking about them tonight, Sanchez was everything we knew he was when he came on.


4.) 21 Aug 2020 23:48:58
they got to the final something we could not do.


5.) 22 Aug 2020 02:20:16
They got knocked out by Sevilla just like we did Daz.


6.) 22 Aug 2020 10:02:25
We all know the 3 of them have quality but these were also players that the majority of us wanted out. Success elsewhere should not be relevant to our progress.
None fitted what OGS wanted.
Let's believe in the process.


 

 

16 Aug 2020 22:26:24
I forgot when we lose the world has to have fallen in no matter how we perform or how the game goes.

Ole is useless, the players all need spellings and we haven't improved.

I expected a really tough game tonight, I wasn't confident at all and thought we would have a few chances and have to take them, I was surprised how well we played, how many chances we created and it's so bloody disappointing to lose like that. Not sure if that is a worse way to lose than the way we lost against Chelsea or not, definitely hurts more.

I'm glad we got top 4 so this doesn't mean too much but it would have been a great trophy to win for Ole and got a few off his back. A shame then that we didn't put any of them big chances away.

I get people think I have rose tinted glasses, I probably do but I wear my heart of my sleeve and if I think we were crap I'll say, tonight I didn't think we were, I'm sure some of you disagree. The defending for their 2nd goal was tragic and it was good to see Bruno calling Lindelof out.

Peace to all, I know people will disagree, it seems the interviews with pundits and players do agree with my 'blinkered' view though at least so maybe I'm not going mad.

GDS2

{Ed047's Note - Scholes and Hargreaves 🤷‍♂️🤔


1.) 16 Aug 2020 22:31:16
Hargreaves and Ince hate us and said the same, I just get made to feel like an imbecile on here so it’s nice to hear others with similar views.

{Ed047's Note - GDS, Sevilla deserved to win its that simple and to paint it any different to that is pointless.

Yes you had chances but they count for nothing. Sevilla defended brilliantly and scored two great goals.


2.) 16 Aug 2020 22:40:19
We missed loads of chances, and defended abysmally for their winner. I don't know why people are trying to make it more complicated than that.

At least I made it through the full 90 minutes of this Seville game. Subs were late, but apart from Mata, who really on that bench was likely to break down the massed ranks of a wily, battle-hardened Seville team?

Young team. Take these experiences and use them.

I used to gently rib you about your optimism, GDS, but I'd take that every day over some of the silliness shown on here after a defeat.


3.) 16 Aug 2020 22:45:36
Stevie,

That’s pretty much all I’ve said, missed loads of chances, crap defending for their goal. So many games in the recent past where we didn’t have any chances.

Got some cracking young players and I think the inexperience maybe showed a little tonight, the future does seem to have some brightness to it from what I can see.


4.) 16 Aug 2020 22:42:41
They scored more goals so they won the game but the best team lost tonight, sometimes that happens in football, we’ve had games when we have been poor and won, tonight we were good and lost, who ‘deserved it’ is a matter of opinion.

Like I said the chelsea game in the cup we were useless, tonight we were far from that but still lost, I’m disappointed but can see some positives, I think that’s ok isn’t it?

{Ed047's Note - good I guess is about the size of it but not good enough tonight.

I personally didn’t see any positives as too many went missing and no one can have been happy with their own personal performances tonight.


5.) 16 Aug 2020 22:50:53
Ok you win, no positives at all, we created no chances and we were awful like the Chelsea game. Let’s make it easy.

{Ed047's Note - brilliant 🤦‍♂️🙄


6.) 16 Aug 2020 22:56:37
Everyone is entitled to their opinion. We didn't score from open play, so that means we played badly. We didn't capitalize on the chances created so that means we played badly. If the tables were turned and we won. The narrative would have been that we were lucky and Sevilla deserved to when based on the amount of chances they created. People see what they want. If you believe the side played well don't let the opinions of others change it.


7.) 16 Aug 2020 22:57:27
Thank you 👍🏻😀.

{Ed047's Note - you’re welcome 🤣


8.) 16 Aug 2020 23:01:44
We were good gds, not only that but if we'd have taken half our chances we would have walked that game, I remember our last tango with sevilla, this could not have been anymore different.

I don't care what anyone says, i'm happy with the season, happy with the manager, happy with the players 😀.

{Ed047's Note - good on you Deano, it’s always nice to have a friend in need. 😁👍🏼


9.) 16 Aug 2020 23:06:47
Bloody hell Deano that’s a bit positive mate, chill out 😉.

I can’t tell if you’re being sarcastic but I definitely agree on the difference between the last game against Sevilla and this, perhaps it would do some people some good to watch that game back and see the progress.

I’m not happy with the season, I think we’ve done better than I expected but getting to 3 semi’s and not getting over the line is hugely disappointing.


10.) 16 Aug 2020 23:04:29
GDS2, I think we are seeing two people's views from opposing ends of the spectrum. I actually watched the game with a Liverpool fan who was unbiased enough to admit that we were probably the better side and unlucky on the night not to Bury our chances. Our defence let us down tonight although I don't think sevilla caused us as many problems as we caused them. Don't get to rattled by what others say you are perfectly entitled to your opinion as other are to theirs.

{Ed047's Note - there you go GDS, somebody loves you 😉


11.) 16 Aug 2020 23:10:29
I'll sleep soundly tonight knowing our strikers whacked the ball at the Sevillas players legs. Because that's what really counts.


12.) 16 Aug 2020 23:15:29
i think the point is he had no idea how to change it. especially when you have had how many chances and not scored.


13.) 16 Aug 2020 23:16:00
Simon,

Not rattled by people having their own opinion, that’s what this place is all about, I was just ridiculed for half an hour about mine which can be a little frustrating.


14.) 16 Aug 2020 23:33:32
we wernt that good we are going home. watch are cast offs at inter get to the final.


15.) 16 Aug 2020 23:40:53
Don't worry Ed047, i'll be a friend of yours the day you finally say something positive about Utd lol😁😁.

{Ed047's Note - scholsey I knew you’d be there for me mate! 😁

You have some quality players, you need a fair few more, you need the right people to make the right decisions.

You (Not you personally) just have this crazy habit of seeing the first green shoots of something better and turn it into a fully grown tree in 2 minutes.

Then when it goes tits up again toys are out of the pram. Sadly you weren’t great tonight mate, less than 5% conversion rate for all your 40 odd attempts. You can’t live off what ifs.

You’re a massive club, you will come again but need to walk before you start sprinting out the traps.

Was that positive enough! 🤣


16.) 16 Aug 2020 23:51:51
Isn’t that exactly the rationale behind the appointment of OGS Ed?

{Ed047's Note - I don’t think a club your size should be looking at anyone as a stop gap Eric.

Get the right man from the start to shape the team exactly where you want to go.

It’s just starting over and over again if you don’t. Like us with Emery.🤦‍♂️


17.) 17 Aug 2020 00:44:49
The right man should be Nagelsmann, Ten Haag, Allegri Ed047, managers of that ilk, not Ole. He will never be good enough ultimately, this is the best it'll get with him, 3rd and possibly a trophy.

He's been here for just under 2 years yet i can't actually see a set style of play, there's no patterns in our play, no fixed system, it's boring and relies heavily on individual brilliance. His tactics are bare minimum.

We need better players aswell, certainly someone like Sancho or Chiesa (as Ed002 says) for RW, a top class DM though Matic has signed a 3yr deal, a LB (Jose Gaya), a CB (JM Gimenez) and the GK issue needs resolving aswell. We are far far away from winning the PL and CL to be honest, especially with the amateurs on board running the club.


18.) 17 Aug 2020 00:48:49
Theres no 'right man'out there. As I've always said we just need to compete with the top 2. No one's going to dominate because everyone's got money now. Once United are good to watch ( like tonight) let's enjoy our football and trophies will come. it comes in cycles and will have ours again.

{Ed0666's Note - Nagelsmann is the right man.


19.) 17 Aug 2020 01:08:14
I hope you are right.


20.) 17 Aug 2020 01:09:23
And we get him.


21.) 17 Aug 2020 01:26:22
Ed066, great minds think alike lol.

{Ed0666's Note - if I was a great mind I wouldn’t be editing on this site mate 😂


22.) 17 Aug 2020 03:24:10
I nominate the new Messiah "Mikel Arteta".


23.) 17 Aug 2020 09:25:33
You'd rather be here than on mainstream sites like the Mail and S*n, your work on here is 👌🏻.

{Ed0666's Note - oh your silver tongue romeo you!


 

 

06 Aug 2020 17:14:52
Something I haven't seen mentioned here was the reaction after the Martial goal last night and he everyone was smiling.

Ole said Tony was begging him to come on and told him if he did he would get the winner. I don't know about you but that feels a huge change in attitude and confidence from him. He was the best player on the pitch by a mile when he came on, suddenly lifting us to a level above. He's taken a lot of stick on here and some of it definitely warranted but he seems to be loving playing under Ole and absolutely thriving at the minute, hope he keeps it up.

GDS2

1.) 06 Aug 2020 17:43:01
He has been a beast in second half of the season.
Huge change in attitude and work ethic.
Credit to all Ole.

23 goals and counting this season.


2.) 06 Aug 2020 18:00:35
To think jose wanted rid of him aswell.

What a difference a postive manager makes.


3.) 06 Aug 2020 19:19:58
Ole is GOD himself. Jose is DEMON. Helps? What are Barcelona thinking going for Pochettino, haven't they seen Ole?


4.) 06 Aug 2020 19:26:52
Oh Shan, bless you.


5.) 06 Aug 2020 19:27:58
☝️😂😂🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️.


6.) 06 Aug 2020 19:36:35
🎣 from GDS, let's check the net, oh look a Shan 😂.

On a serious note Martial looks a player reborn. He's found his hunger, he's making runs and off the ball movement that he just wasn't making 2 years ago. If he keeps this up and steers clear of injuries he will be a top player for us.


7.) 06 Aug 2020 19:38:39
May be Barcelona don't want to pay to get Ole😁😃hence going for Pochettino.


8.) 06 Aug 2020 19:41:54
You can't pleas everyone and shan is the proof of this. We get you don't like ole getting boring now. Do you actually support united?


9.) 06 Aug 2020 20:16:00
dannyc

You can support United and not the Manager. The Manager is a transient employee. Questioning someone’s support for the club because they don’t think the manager is good enough is extremely poor. This is not North Korea.


10.) 06 Aug 2020 20:46:04
I don't understand why few are bitter towards Ole.
Credit where it's due.


11.) 06 Aug 2020 20:46:27
Possibly Red Man - but we’ve been awful since 2013, played turgid football for years.

OGS has flogged loads of players we wanted out, replaced them with younger and better players, and has us playing decent football and got us to 3rd and within reach of the Europa League. The rebuild that we all wanted is actually taking place finally.

Congrats would not go amiss.


12.) 06 Aug 2020 20:52:48
Who would have thought that people could get so upset when we are doing ok 🤣🤣🤣.


13.) 06 Aug 2020 21:14:10
I am not bitter towards Ole, how could I, he scored that goal but I am objective about him as a manager. I don’t follow the emotional sentimental course that some do. Yes we got top four and that was welcome, I said well done. However, I also see the same in game management and tactical errors, perhaps others overlook because of who he is. Ed001 and 2 say it, but because Ole has the sentimental choice no one will listen.

There is still no reason for danny to question someone’s loyalty to the club, because they don’t believe the manager is good enough.


14.) 06 Aug 2020 21:48:50
In the last 6 months there have been many positives no matter whether you believe ole is a good manager or not.
Up to Christmas we were awful we finished the previous season awful. During those periods we played some of the worst football since dave sexton was manager.
As a result of the results and performances up to xmas this season we finished closer to relegation than top points wise.
But since bruno signed the results since got us to 3rd place our points total over that period only bettered by city and liverpool. With spurs 2 points behind.
Over that period players like shaw awb martial greenwood bruno matic and rashford all were playing very well imo.
I think for most of this season ole was probably only 2 bad results from the sack. Throughout that time he had conducted himself very well and mature and improved in his dealings with the media.
He has the job he has done just enough to hang on to it.
If he starts hot next season he has a great opportunity to build on the momentum he built in the 2nd half of this season.
If he has a poor start he will come under pressure quickly.
Lots of reasons to be doubtful of his ability but in the past 6 months in a results business he is beginning to give doubters cause to think and hope.
It would be absolute folly to think ole has cracked it but its also absolute folly not to recognise the improvement in some key players and results since bruno came in Jan.


15.) 06 Aug 2020 21:59:14
I think after the Lord Mayors Show we are all experts. OGS has made some tactical errors, but no ore than the tactical and managerial superstars that were LVG, Moyes and Jose.

Personally, I don’t think OGS is the ultimate answer either to be fair, but compared to the three names above, he’s a breath of fresh air, and is finally doing the rebuild job everyone on these pages craved - and we are playing much eye pleasing football. For that, I say well done, keep it up.

Perhaps with the right structure, ie a good DoF and I think a stronger coaching set up to replace Phelan’s influence, we might be in good shape.


16.) 06 Aug 2020 22:13:18
Redman I agree to an extent but if you support a team you get behind the players and staff, don't look for an excuse to have a pop at the manager at every opportunity. We finished 3rd which many of us thought was impossible at one stage and also into the qf of europa league, ole deserve some credit or respect. My point aimed at shan was simply every time I come on here win, draw or lose he bashing ole or a player in some way that's why I questioned him, surely there are some positives he can take at times.


17.) 06 Aug 2020 22:29:09
Danny I've been a super for 45 years.
There is many a player or manager i didn't like over that time.
I don't like martial i didn't like rvp i didn't like ince or sexton but i jump as high as any supporter when they score or do well.
Critisism is fine its ok for antibody to express their opinion just because it differs from your way or thought doesn't mean they like the club any less than you. People who don't see fault and defend what others see as indefensible are just as odd in my book.
If redman was in charge ole would be first out the door
If shappy was in charge we would sign 78 players and all be happy chaps
If shane was in charge rash is a goner
If i was in charge martial would be gone
If noucamp was in charge he would bring Gordon hill back to play lw
Some would make pogna captain others want him burnt at the stake.
But we all follow united.


18.) 06 Aug 2020 23:27:09
Ken,

Out of couriosity I wanted to ask why didn't you like RVP?


19.) 06 Aug 2020 23:49:25
Hi Singh,
Hard to say exactly just never took to him. Sometimes i don't connect with a player.
Always respected him just didn't appeal to me as an individual.


20.) 07 Aug 2020 00:04:26
Ken we all critise at time and have things we dislike at times I get that. We will never all agree on a player or manager but while they are here you get behind them that is the point I was making. I never said I support the club more than others I just made my observation and asked a question.


21.) 07 Aug 2020 00:47:52
I hear you Danny i support the club some of its employees i admire some i dont. When they go out on the pitch i want them all to do well. Just like you or shan or anyone else on here. Except mighty reds of course😂.


22.) 07 Aug 2020 07:49:44
I don't get how people get so upset or don't like players they don't know .
Its all lines in the sand on here and people not wanting to be wrong .
This season has been a full on rebuild, we have seen that but the direction has been there from the start . and some are finally starting to see that . Others still don't want to.


23.) 07 Aug 2020 07:51:16
should also say criticising is fine but it needs to be justified, some of the criticism on herr is a joke.


24.) 07 Aug 2020 09:34:01
Who is upset?
Who does peoples critisism need to be justified to? You jred?
People are entitled to critisise if they feel its justified. If you don't agree that's fine but nobody needs to justify anything to anybody else if that's how they feel they are entitled to say it.


25.) 07 Aug 2020 10:12:03
My OP was a post about how Martial has improved and his attitude has improve which it has quite obviously true. It wasn’t a wind up or anything like that, every post on here these days turns into somebody slagging one of our players off or mainly the manager if they don’t like that someone has said that actually he might be doing ok.

I don’t think ‘people won’t listen because Ole is the sentimental choice’ Red Man, I think people are bored of being told how bad he is when he’s done a decent job. Obviously the majority like him because of how good he was as a player, but that also means he ‘gets the club’ and is a fan which means he can make decisions that a fan would make. We wanted Fellaini out, Ole did it almost immediately even though previous managers were using him as an important part of the tactics. Sanchez, Smalling, Jones, Rojo all players the majority on here wanted rid of that previous managers have used regularly, Ole doesn’t want them. There are others too. You can’t deny he is doing some things very right.

I said when Ole came in that I think he might end up being the fall guy and not quite be up to the standard tactically that we require, but will improve so many aspects of the club that the squad and club he leaves will be a much much better one than the one he joined, I still stand by that, I just don’t post it every day on every post to get my point across as people would get bored very quickly.


26.) 07 Aug 2020 10:15:44
I would be disappointed if I couldn't get this starting 11 into 3rd place never mind Ole.

You think because we played well against a few sides we will do it all season? You remember the AMAZING run when Ole was appointed we resorted back. Now the honeymoon is over again after lockdown he will resort back when he can't go for it. He was playing for his job again, now he's got another full season to get his feet under the table.

DanJames, What are you on about? Deluded if you genuinely think you are a better manager than anyone currently employed as a football manager anywhere in the football league.

We all think we know best, yet as Ed002 will attest we actually know very little of the inner working of a professional football club. So how could any of us genuinely manage one.

While I agree on paper our current starting 11 looks strong enough for third place, the reality is that for large parts of the season we haven't been able to name anything close to our strongest 11. Pogba injured for 8 months, Rashford, Martial, Shaw and Matic inured for 2-3 months each, McTominay out injured for 2 months over the busy Christmas period, Bruno not part of the squad until the start of February, while Greenwood was doing well, he didn't really kick on until after the restart, where it was clear he had filled out during the break.

So context is needed to understand the big picture. The issue we have is that we don't have quality in depth to offer a challenge to our first team players to keep them on their toes, nor is there a rotation option to give them a break and stop them getting injured due to fatigue. Rashford had to play for nearly a month with a stress fracture in his back, before he got a second fracture and was out for 2-3 months.

Come on Shappy you're better than that.

If you want me to feed you: I think the point was I could manage this side with the starting 11 on show.


29.) 07 Aug 2020 12:37:08
DanJames, really? Pogba and co will listen to you why? What experience do you have?

We are all backseat managers at times. But the truth is we don't have the ability or the knowledge to actually manager a top football club.

DJ, This is not play station that anyone can come in and manage.
You would need the respect of the squad, manage egoistic figures and much much more.

Mengi became the eighth academy graduate to debut for the first-team this term and the last time United managed that number in a single season was in 1952-53.

Bloody coward I tell you.

How long was there to go when he brought him on? We were five nil up and five away goals at that, why not half time?


2.) 06 Aug 2020 10:11:09
Doesn’t take much cojones to bring on an 18 year old when your 5 goals up with 5 mins to go 😂
But on a serious note, congrats to Mengi, looks a solid player.

Groan - more moaning.

Ole will forever be in a lose, lose situation whilst he's at the club. If he goes on to win the Europa league, no doubt people will say it was just luck or it's only a Mickey Mouse cup etc. Ole is doomed if he does, doomed if he doesn't.


5.) 06 Aug 2020 20:25:26
No trophy is MM, the Europa is not Big Ears but still worth winning and I want to see us win it. I don’t care about people saying it was luck, be objective by all means, but put the name on the trophy.

For years we have been asking us not to overpay for players and not to sell players for cheaper than they are worth. We are doing just that and moaning about that as well 🤷🏼‍♂️.

Scott,

When you say ‘face reality’ do you mean agree with your always pessimistic view on everything?

That’s the kind of nonsense post I expect to see on twitter, you’ve literally replied to a post where Ed002 explains what is going on and that it can be done and then basically told us all we should agree with you. I’d rather agree with Ed0002 if that’s ok.

Yer man,

Any other examples or just them 2?

Have you heard of a player called Mason Greenwood? Just a thought.

Depends on your definition of ‘decent’. I think we would be a player or 2 away from challenging for the top honours if we did that, remember after Bruno signed we didn’t lose a league game, a good start and a couple more signings and we will have more than a ‘decent’ squad, I think we already have one, people (Myself included obviously) just want us to get them extra players in order to challenge for the title.

Dan James,

What did I say that has something to do with my eyesight?

I like young players coming through, Mengi looks like a good kid and I’d love it if he could prove himself and make his way into the first team, he has all the attributes of someone who would be good for us as a partner for maguire.

I’d like us to sign a right winger and a left back if we are playing transfer Tourette’s, if not then I won’t be getting all upset and angry like others.

DSG,

I agree, I was actually doing some squad analysis this morning (bored at work) and we actually look ok in the majority of areas apart from in the forward line and potentially at left back if Williams moves over to the right. We are stacked in other positions so you can see why these are the priority.

Fingers crossed we get a couple of good players over the line, we usually do.

nobby,

Has that got anything to do with the OP? Transfer tourettes seems to be a thing these days, just spout 'we haven't signed anyone I wanted'on every post even if it is nothing to do with it.

I am excited for Mengi, I hope he is a regular in the first time by the end of the season, very happy for the kid.
