  1. FIFA 18

    Think they added a feature like PES where you hold R1 for a high cross. So try pressing a different button when crossing.
  2. Squad Depth; are you happy?

    Story of his life. (He got injured yet again...)
  3. La Liga 2017/18.

    I'm not a betting man, but I feel like I should start and just bet on everything you say 😅
  4. FA Premier League 2017/18

    Watford are to City what Villa are to United. Can always count on them getting spanked. I'm just sad about not having Aguero in FPL :(

  6. FA Premier League 2017/18

    How long before Palace take away my Forster CS I wonder 🤔
  7. PL Matchday 5: Man Utd vs Everton

    Is this your attempt at opening up to me? You could have just dropped me a PM. I'll talk to anyone.
  8. PL Matchday 5: Man Utd vs Everton

    I mean, if you're not going to post tactical predictions in a match day thread... Then where are you going too? (People post predicted line-ups all the time). I for one appreciate the extra effort O puts in because he does tend to know his stuff and gets close to the actual output.
  9. Ander Herrera 2017/18

    Sensationalism. He simply hasn't been needed thus far. But when one of the big teams come into town, I have no doubt he'll be one of the first on the team sheets. We simply haven't needed a three man midfield. Matic & Pogba have been enough to give us balance.
  10. Ander Herrera 2017/18

    If the Sun and Metro are reporting it, then it must be true.
  11. Squad Depth; are you happy?

    Aye, it's similar for me when I doubt a player and they throw egg at my face (Rojo...) I do think Martial is better from the left. The space to take on players suits him and he has a knack for putting the ball at another players feet for an assist. But least we forget that we signed him as a ST and that's where he played during his first season. If it came to it, I don't think we should be worried at all if he had to play ST.

    I think you're confusing depth with quality. When you take into account the ages of Rashford, Martial and Lukaku, then obviously inconsistencies in their performances is to be expected. But with their ages comes a ceiling, room to grow. You have to account for that. Zlatan only being here for half a season is irrelevant. He is a United player, and having that amount of quality as a tool in our box is something most teams could only dream about having. (Unless he is completely washed up post injury. But then, who is going to doubt him again?) If you bring this back to depth, as is the topic of the thread, then I really don't think you have any grounds to complain about our out-and-out striking options. For comparison sake, here are the strikers available for other PL teams to the best of my knowledge; Chelsea: Morata/Batshuayi/Costa (lol) Arsenal: Lacazette/Giroud/Sanchez (though I doubt he'll play there anymore) Spurs: Kane/Llorente Liverpool: Firmino/Sturridge/Solanke/Ings City: Aguero/Jesus United: Lukaku/Zlatan/Rashford/Martial Heck, here are a few others from other leagues; Barcelona: Suarez/Messi/Alcacer Real Madrid: Benzema/Ronaldo Bayern: Lewandowski/Muller? Dortmund: Aubameyang (legit no idea who they have to cover him) PSG: Cavani/Neymar/Mbappe (😩) Do not get me wrong. I am not saying we have the best quality. I would take most of these players over Lukaku as a lead forward. But so many of these rest on the laurels of their star man not getting injured. If Aubameyang picks up an injury, then they're playing wingers there. City literally only have Aguero and Jesus. Lets be honest, they're quite prone to picking up an injury. If they both happened to be injured at the same time, they'll be fielding a team of midfielders... We really have no reason to worry in this respect. And even if all 4 of those named picked up a knock, then we have Mkhitaryan, Fellaini [and Wilson] to play out of position. And like I said, what we lack in quality in comparison, we make up for in potential for growth. Most of the teams above are going to have to look at replacements sooner rather than later. I imagine we'll sign someone new when Zlatan moves on also. Who's that going to be? Let us assume that it might be someone like Griezmann. How about that for depth and quality...? Although, PSG. Disgusting quality and depth 😷
  13. La Liga 2017/18.

    Very interesting! So how do you think Atletico will progress for the rest of the season? Is there any risk that they might have a tough time adapting to their new stadium (akin to what we have been seeing with Spurs at Wembley)? And obviously, they have had their transfer ban which has meant no new signings. Does this mean that we should expect an influx in January? You said yourself that Torres is getting on, and with Griezmann looking pretty bound to leave at the end of the season, they're going to need to basically refresh their strike force? Didn't know about how well Real Sociedad were performing 😯 I might tune in for that after the United game. If you think those 3 promoted teams staying up, who do you see going down? I was reading an article about Valencia and Marcelino the other day actually. How he sets up with 4-4-2 and Pereira will likely rotate with some other promising kid they have over LM/RM? How Pereira couldn't have hoped for much better in terms of studying under a manager who truly loves football? Makes me feel pretty excited, but then I do wonder how that will impact his United career. I really don't know where he's going to play, but if he becomes a wide midfielder, then there's certainly room for him to take a back-up slot at United you would imagine. How about Athletic so far? And Barcelona I am quite interested in. There was a lot of negativity about them being a finished squad before the season started (not aided by the sale of Neymar) but they did just beat Juventus in midweek I believe? And what's the word on Dembele, has he settled well?

    I was looking at this the other day. Felt kind of sad as I really enjoyed the look of the old stadium. This, along with their new crest, truly reflects a new era 😮 How well have they started the season out of interest? [actually, if you were interested in talking about La Liga, i'd love to read your interpretation of how a number of clubs have been getting on and how you think they'll progress over the coming weeks].

    So basically he's the Spanish Lingard? 😏 [I feel bad for even typing that]
