  2. I am surprised at the lack of Scholes/Gerrard/Lampard. Also no centre backs.

    Non United Transfers 2018

    He's been a good player for most of his time in the PL, last season was really the only one where he played below his usual standard. It's a smart bit of business for Atletico.

  6. Fun fact: if Phil Jones sees out his entire contract extension he’ll have spent the same amount of time here as Roy Keane.

    I suppose it depends on which camp your in Butmiester. There'll be those that as it stands will feel its too much pressure to throw too many young guns in early doors. And then there's those who feel we need to be brave and get them up and running from the off. There's fair case for both approaches I reckon. Fergie went for it and was slaughtered for it against Villa...."You wont win anything playing kids" said Hansen. We all know the rest. Yet we've been wheeling out Jones, Smalling Young, Mata, Matic for what seems eternity and getting absolutely nowhere. I think its fair to say that they aren't suddenly going to look fantastic so maybe its time for Ole to take that gamble. One thing is for certain. If Ole does elect to opt for experience and it goes tits...(and lets be totally honest here, it probably would) then the fans will turn on him massively, and nobody wants to see that happen. Where as I think the majority of fans would be far more patient if the young lads were not quite getting the results but the effort was clear to see. Its a tough call but one the manager is going to have to make very soon.

    Then if the results are negative..could be looking an early exit..and maybe get hung drawn and quartered by those who had faith in him ...having faith in youth.

    I'm thinking the same Lockster. Some headless chicken running around and looking lively for the first few games, especially the younger players (if they get any game time). But I'm expecting absolutely no change whatsoever from Young, Mata, Matic, Smalling, Jones. I have a feeling Ole will shit his pants and fill the team with the tired the lame and the lazy come the start of the season.

    The leeds performance shows that there are a few new faces knocking on the door but they aren't going to become established first teamers anytime soon. Most premier league sides are a class above leeds and even mid table clubs are able to afford high transfer fees or resist bids for top stars. With our present lineup a lot hinges on pogba to make the difference. The signs are he'll be staying but will he be motivated to perform at the top of his game week in week out. If we sign a defender and perhaps another midfielder I'd be optimistic of us finishing 4th but no higher. The way we ended the last campaign raises doubts as to what this group of players can achieve under solskjaer.

    What fantastic challenge Royal Port Rush looks. A proper test of golf. Howling winds and pain in the arse drizzle. Keep my fingers crossed one of the Irish lads can do the bizz.

    Good work out. Comfortable win. Lots of positives. The youngsters all looked good. Loads of pace. Still would be keen for at least 2 more transfers before window shuts. Last year José was demanding a new CB and yet we are still waiting. Fernándes been on the cards for all of window, but nothing moving, and let's face it, if Pogba goes, or stays and gets injured, the midfield is fucked. The wages these players are on here seems to have priced all of the deadwood from being able to be afforded by any of the other clubs, so the needed clear out is looking impossible!

    What most impressed me about Angel Gomes today was his strength under pressure - he looks like someone who could be bullied off the ball easily, but he did very well to get out of tight spaces and shield the ball. Very promising. I like Scott McT more and more every time I watch him play. Another good showing from the lad. Think my body went into shock at the sight of a United right back breaking forward to drill in a cross for an assist. Despite the concerns some have voiced over his attacking play, AWB has done pretty well in this department. Shit man, I am starting to get excited for the new season now. Same thing every year. Just hope it isn't a shiteshow like last time!

    I can see it. Honestly think this might be it. Or fuck it we loan Bale (TFIA meltdown scenario)

    Summer 2019 - transfer targets

    If we lose Lukaku, I'd much rather we replace with a winger. Ideally we would need another striker but ultimately fixing our first 11 needs fixing first. We have Rashford > Martial/Greenwood for the #9 position and on the right we're still looking at Lingard or Mata, unless James makes a big step up from Championship level. The only argument against it would be if we have some kind of deal with Sancho for next Summer, but even then I don't think I can stomach another season with nothing on the right wing.

    I don't know him personally. Messi is one of the laziest players in football though.

    How good at lying about his footballing ability and fitness level is he tho?

    I bet Messi is great at pull-ups.

    You’re telling me about fitness and you can’t do a pullup and lie about how much ground you cover on the internet, mate, fuck out of here.

    What are we doing as a club?

    Like others have said, we have known that issues at boardroom level are affecting the club. I am glad that Louis Van Gaal is speaking out about these as then it helps fans and other pros alike see and we can gather some momentum to set about a change. There is some really concerning issues that arise about the recruitment of LVG. Why was he not spoken to about club culture and philosophy etc? I am genuinely baffled that we are about 3 weeks from end of the window and we have sold nobody. We have let possibly our most passionate player leave on a free. We are literally in freefall. We were promised after Jose that we would be given a sporting director and a management appointment would be made at the end of the season. Neither has happened. What the actual fuck is happening? Ole had a great run and arguments can be made for his appointment and against it but the way the season ended and his rhetoric about changing the dressing room etc maybe i was naive. The only hope i could possibly see is that with a pre season under his belt he is able to change the fitness levels and approach to matchday. More aggression, sprinting and running. It was a damning indictment that Martial and Pogba were high percentage walkers. Having said that, it may be another season of pessimism and the rot is at the highest level. The coaching staff will not bear the brunt of it this time, the scope will move to the boardroom.

    If you’re constantly moving off ball you must never be in good positions in the first place. Why are you running from the good position you were already in. “According to a report....that I haven’t even linked so it’s definitely made up”

    We have to be savage with this current crop of under performing players and literally accept that we will face losses and bad deals to shift the deadwood.

    Romelu Lukaku 2018/19

    No. Well, yeah. I constantly move off the ball into good positions. I'm not a defender. The average 5-a-side player covers around 80% of the ground they'd cover in a 90 minute 11-a-side game. According to a report.
