Creme de la menthe! Parlez-vous Norn Iron?

How to speak Norn Iron (very funny)

Cheers Eds for the accompanying video. I've never felt sympathy for the French before, but God help them if we do the unthinkable, and actually bloody qualify.

Glad to see it looks like the 5 sub rule is being dumped. Would have handed too big an advantage to the top clubs.

1.) 07 Aug 2020 12:30:28
Yup now English teams will be disadvantaged in Europe as most the other leagues have voted it in I believe.

2.) 07 Aug 2020 12:34:20
I feel kind of mixed about it. While I 100% that in its current format it would give too big an advantage to the top sides, I liked the possibility of it opening up chances for young players to get more minutes.

Maybe they could introduce a 5 sub rule that is more tilted towards giving young players a chance. Maybe you could have 3 normal subs, plus two that had to be players from your own youth academy and had less than 25 first team appearances.

That way there would always be two sub chances for young players and clubs would have a little more flexibility and wouldn't have to choose between playing an injured player or going down to 10 men if a player picks up an injury after the three subs have been made.

While it wouldn't give a disproportionate advantage to the top sides.

3.) 07 Aug 2020 12:35:10
Dbrooks, how will they be at a disadvantage in Europe? As in more chance to rest and rotate players or did you mean something different?

4.) 07 Aug 2020 12:57:01
Its to many changes, you are changing half your outfield players .

5.) 07 Aug 2020 14:23:45
Agree with jred. 5 is too many. i'd perhaps allow an injured player be replaced if 3 subs have been made but its probably too open for abuse.

6.) 07 Aug 2020 15:40:02
5 subs was a brilliant idea. Also a better way of giving youth players a chance of first team football. It was a progressive way to improving the English game. Remember when trams had no subs. A poor decision to go against 5 subs. More players would get rest aswell.

7.) 07 Aug 2020 15:52:15
I think it opens up far more scope for tactical changes in game. It would enable you to make three subs to change the shape and focus of your side mid game without the concern that you leave yourself open to having to play with 10 men should you pick up an injury.

I think it would freshen things up. I remember having a chat with someone who thought that maybe the American football way might be an interesting way to go. Where you can bring on and off as all players on your subs bench throughout the game. I was sold on that idea as you could see 4 or 5 changes from each side at every set play depending on whether your attacking or defending. Which would be too disruptive.

Maybe 5 subs could be a halfway point that enables more tactical flexibility in game, but avoids chaos.

8.) 07 Aug 2020 17:13:27
Why didn’t they just compromise and allow 4 subs?

9.) 07 Aug 2020 21:11:34
Cost its an even number stringer. 😂.

10.) 08 Aug 2020 14:30:39
3 subs, you have to really earn your corn as a manager as well re. in-game management. 5 makes it much easier.

So Angel Gomes has ended up at Lille. With all due respect to them, where were all the top teams that were supposed to be interested in taking him?

This was supposed to be an indictment on the club's ability to keep our best young talent. Maybe, he just wasn't good enough yet.

1.) 05 Aug 2020 13:33:59
He wants game time and to progress. With the garbage that has been getting I front of him this season, he knew it was time to move on. Lingard, Perriera, Mata have rarely contributed anything.

2.) 05 Aug 2020 13:35:25
what's more bizzare is he is going on loan to midtable portugese team, so not even considered good enough to play consistently for lille right now.

3.) 05 Aug 2020 14:10:33
Lille had a clear plan for his progression - sign and we will loan you here and get regular game time. Think that was the issue with us, we had no plan for him and no obvious pathway into the first team.

4.) 05 Aug 2020 14:11:00
Mad Hatter,

Maybe all of them players put more effort in and performed better in training? It’s not like Gomes set the world slight when he did play and was unlucky to not keep his place. Williams was given a chance and took it, Greenwood the same, we are happy to give kids the chance, so just maybe he wasn’t good enough. Where he’s ended up would suggest that to be the case.

5.) 05 Aug 2020 14:14:59
Exactly. Could have stayed and been loaned from here. Each to their own - good luck to him.

6.) 05 Aug 2020 15:51:09
What are these magical chances you speak of GDS?

7.) 05 Aug 2020 17:43:28

I’m sorry I don’t understand.

8.) 05 Aug 2020 18:03:29
Three games against fairly weak Europa league opposition. Where he drifted in and out of the game, and made very little impact against either of Astana or Alkmaar. Not creating any chances or getting close to scoring.



30 Jul 2020 10:17:04
Just saw i did a Spurs in the site's fantasy football. Led for most of the season, then choked and lost by 7 points. Anybody know an Andy O'Toole? I need to pay him a wee visit.

Thanks to whoever organised this year's one!



27 Jul 2020 09:36:02
Phew! That was a close run thing. Glad we managed to avoid relegation in the end. In the real world, I think 3rd was as good as we could have hoped for this season. Certainly nothing to celebrate, but another step in the right direction, and feeling more like my Utd. I thought I'd lost it over the last lot of seasons.



19 Jul 2020 13:29:45
I know top 4 is the modern be all and end all, for the holy grail of the ECL. But from a purely selfish point of view, I hope there aren't too many changes today. For those of us of a certain vintage, I think the FA Cup still means something. It is special. Nothing worse than watching two teams walk out in the final, and your club isn't one of them.

1.) 19 Jul 2020 13:39:56
I agree Let's get this game won then move on to the next .
Got a horrible feeling chelsea are due a win tho.

2.) 19 Jul 2020 16:06:40
Worst case scenario we lose today but also burn out the team physically. We are United thus we want to win all of the games but we have to be wary. CL is vital.

3.) 19 Jul 2020 16:50:18
It's ok, jred. My natural pessimism has given way to the fact my young lad is wearing his lucky shirt. Unbeaten since I got it for him a lot of months ago. We're OK 😁.

Such a shame. I always hoped he'd end up here at some point. Lad's been doing himself no favours whatsoever. Could you see Messi or Ronaldo being happy to sit on the bench, rather than take a pay cut and go and play football somewhere else?

He's cheap for a reason.

Maybe a bit harsh, Eric. Just annoys me to see talent going to waste. You just know Ronaldo or Messi would be busting a gut to play football. Anywhere. And that's why they're top players. Does Bale really just want to be remembered for the size of his paycheck? Character-wise, I don't think the last year has shown him in a great light, and I think character is important when looking at potential signings.

I always thought Bale would and should have ended up at Urd. But the way he has carried on for the last lot of months, would make me give him a huge swerve now. What sort of professional footballer would rather not play football. His agent is the only reason his name is even still mentioned. I'd forgotten he even still played football.

Sorry, Ed002, you lost me when you said he was a German with a sense of humour. Wee bit of casual stereotyping there for a Friday afternoon 😁.

With all due respect, Herrera, and to the players, a bench with Fred, McTom, Ighalo and James on it, isn't likely to strike fear into Liverpool or City. Quality rather than quantity would be preferable. And you can't include Sancho when there's every chance he'll never arrive here.

I don't think there's a problem with the first team, Herrera, so much as the squad depth. The middle/ front 6 are competitive, no doubt about it.

I actually agree with Shan on one point. I can't easily forget how tired the players looked in our last lot of games. I worry the short break will have us running on empty before long.

I think his attitude has been poor, and I don't know if it's worth the risk. But I'm a sentimentalist, and like I said elsewhere, I always hoped he'd end up here. Wouldn't touch with my money, but it's not my money, so.

Good post, Red Man. Always good to have a reminder.
