    Wayne Rooney Thread

    Officially retired today as a player, to take up the full-time role as Derby manager. Firstly, I suppose I’ll start with what a career! Won it all with the club and probably the best teenage player ever. Frightening what he could do when he first arrived....which brings me on to the second part. Did he ever truly fulfil that potential? He answering being....probably not. Amazing player, but had the talent to be the very best player in the world but just couldn’t break that ceiling for a variety of reason. Still, he’ll be remembered as a legend. Not as big as Giggs, Scholes and Nevi

  3. Supporting United in those days was an experience never to be forgotten. I was at Selhurst Park the day we lost 0-5 to Palace and up in the stands was Tommy Doc, then manager of Scotland. The word went round and, sure enough, he was installed as manager, with his first game at home to Leeds two days before Christmas. The atmosphere that day was electric. We were all singing 'we want to see the Doc' before the game, and he came out onto the pitch to wave to us. We were all over Leeds, and scored through Ted MacDougall. A kid ran onto the pitch and took the ball off Lorimer, and we lost a late g

    Wayne Rooney Thread

    It seems to be that his downfall can be put down to two things: That injury in Munich (apparently he played with an ankle brace for the rest of his career) His body type and lack of discipline off the pitch Rooney matched his 2009/2010 output 2 years later during 2011/2012, but was never the same player again. Not for me. I loved the young Rooney in my teenage years. He was explosive; he'd dribble past defenders, drive with the ball and attempt cheeky lobs from far out. More flair to his game. A better player on the eye. He became a better goalscorer at the cost of enterta

  7. Why? He's been bang average while Shaw has been quite good overall this season. I'm disappointed in Telles. I didn't know how good he was but I blindly expected someone who could be a positive first choice attacking full back, but what we have is a decent back up who spams crosses. I wish he was a bit more athletic. Spurs, City x2, Chelsea, Arsenal and Wolves did a good job in restricting our threat on the counter. That's our team go-to. When that doesn't work, it's down to individual stuff. I'd comment on today but i'm even less reliable than normal.

    Probably Allegri because we have no imagination or proactive thought processes.

    Very sad breaking news that "The Doc" has passed away at 92. RIP Revolutionised the way United played after they were relegated. Some of the football was mesmerising to watch with out and out wingers Coppell and Hill collossus at the back with Buchan and Greenhoff and a lethal strike partnership of Macari and Pearson. Got caught playing away with the physio's wife that ended his United career. United would have won the league if he'd stayed in charge well before the Ferguson years I'm convinced of that. Massive enigmatic figure in football for years and one of the most quick wit

  16. Martial doing his best to take us out of the title challenge, but a much improved performance in the second half generally. Pogba very good, Matic very good, Maguire and Bailly very good.

  17. We need a new manager. If it's a ST we want, Haaland is the most obvious elite target. His numbers are insane. He will probably be the top goalscorer of this decade.

  22. Subs: Henderson, Telles, Williams, Tuanzebe, Matić, vdB, James, Greenwood, Ighalo Don't imagine Pep will rotate too much after a good performance against Chelsea. They are riddled with Covid and injury, meaning they were missing Ederson, García, Laporte, Aké, Walker, Ferran & Jesus today. I doubt many of them will be back in just 3 days. Zinchenko is a weak link for them at LB. Defensively that is. He's good on the ball. Rashford should try to exploit him if he starts at RW. But Pep might get Cancelo to switch sides if that's the case. Or maybe Aké will start if he returns from

  25. He’s like a former sexual abuse victim and the football is the paedo. A total lack of chemistry between the two. When the football is forced upon him he loses his mind.

  37. Doesn't suit this team at all. He wants to play quick one-two's, little give and go's, help in the buildup, etc. Ole literally just keeps telling him to make runs in behind, so it's like he's a false striker playing on the left. He doesn't start many games because Ole doesn't know what to do with him. You can see that he's a tidy player. He usually keeps it well, even in tight spaces.

    If Ole does win the league I’ll put it down to Fergie back seat schooling. If he doesn’t he’s still a grade A clown kept afloat by Bruno.

    David De Gea

    Nearly dropped a clanger against Leeds. That shot he parried up into the air almost dropped into the goal via the post. I think we need to sign a new GK soon. It would take us up another level. Ole's loyalty to De Gea has cost him many times over the past 2 years. So he's only shooting himself in the foot.

  44. Ole lives to fight another day. It's crazy how bipolar our performances are over 90 minutes. We can go from one extreme to the other every 15 minutes. I don't think we're coached well enough, but we're in the mix with a game in hand. Leeds will give up chances, but will also create a lot. We'll need to be better than this.
