    2019/2020: PL Matchday 5 - Man Utd vs Leicester City

    Like any young talent. If they get a chance, they'll take it if they're good. We've seen a few at United down the years who we thought were the real deal only to see them fail. Wilson, Januzaj, and Macheda spring to mind.

    Ole Sack Watch

    A DOF who can work with Ole and get the right signings is imperative. Mind you, I think if Ole does fail and gets sacked, the fan's anger will, at long last, be directed at the right people.

    Ashley Young 2019/20

    That's why I mentioned the second point in my post. Young is not a bad player, but he is getting on a bit and is no longer up to the standard we need. It's down to United's make do and mend policy since that arse Woodward has been calling the shots.

    Ashley Young 2019/20

    I don't get all the animosity towards Young. He may not be a top-ranked left back but he's done a good job for us when called upon. The fact that we have to rely on him to cover that position is of more concern and highlights the abysmal recruiting policy of the last few years.

    2019/2020: PL Matchday 5 - Man Utd vs Leicester City

    I only saw some brief highlights so can't really comment, but three points in the bag will do nicely.
  6. I wouldn't give the Glazers the steam off my piss let alone memberhsip money.

    What Movies Are You Watching Right Now?

    Watched Inochi bonufuro (We Give Our Lives for Nothing ) last night. Utterly brilliant. Awaiting the arrival tomorrow of the boxed set of 'The Sleepy Eyes of Death' starring Raizo Ichikawa as Nemuri Kyoshiro, the son of the black mass. Saw 'The Lost Weekend' with Ray Milland the other day and man was it worth the Oscar. The missus wants to see 'Picnic at Hanging Rock' again or else I'm banned from watching samurai flicks.

    David De Gea 2019/20

    They've been reporting this for weeks. He was close before, now he's extremely close. Right.

    Ole Sack Watch

    I'm still pissed off at Ferguson and Gill for what they did, but that's now an exercise in futility. As for Woodward, well, let's try this hypothetical scenario: A team like Leeds, Newcastle, or Villa want to hire a DoF. How much consideration do you think they'd give to Ed Woodward for the job? No chance, right? How about a team like Charlton, or Luton? Same thing. From a purely footballing perspective, it's like asking a 10-year-old to pilot an A380 from London to Hong Kong, yet this odious little shit is DoF of one of the biggest clubs in the game. Think about that, then think about the people who appointed him to that position. I know people will say he's the CEO not the DoF but that's not how Woodward sees it, at least according to Evra. It's mind boggling.

    David De Gea 2019/20

    Pogba wants away, looks like De Gea does too. He would have been on the plane to Madrid if that fax machine hadn't gone on the blink (if you believe that story) so I can't see him staying, captain or not. The writing is on the wall. We keep players by paying well over the odds which is fine as long as it lasts. But a few more seasons of a YTS manager and a fucking bean counter calling teh shots on the pitch and we'll see. FFS, even Adidas had to jump in to keep Pogba at the club, if reports are to be believed. Tell you what though, when their deal runs out, Woodward won't get anything like the money he got last time.

    Ole Sack Watch

    Just ask Darcie Glazer what it's all about. We are her personal ATM. She just loves those shares. They make great collateral for huge loans and, if she defaults, so what? The bank grabs the shares and United ends up footing the bill. I can't believe people think they are great owners. Maybe we should take Fergie's advice and go and support Chelsea.

    Ole Sack Watch

    I understand that football is cyclical and that no team dominates for ever. But United is now a business run by men who don't care about football, just the money it generates for them. What do we get for winning the league apart from a pot? On the other hand, CL qualification brings in lots of money and that is what they see. We are not being run as a football club. There are no football men on the board. The CEO/DOF is a banker. It is his decisions that have cost us dearly since 2013, yet nothing changes. Look at Tampa and look at us: same trajectory. And it could have been avoided.

    Ole Sack Watch

    Pogba's leaving soon anyway. Erikson won't sign for us because he wants medals. Longstaff is inexperienced and just back from an injury. Rodgers' project at Leicester is arguably more attractive that Ole and the Glazers. Back in the 1980s. Gordon McQueen said something like all players would jump at the chance to play for United. Now it's different. Players want to go where they'll win stuff. They look at the turmoil that is United and wonder whether it's worth it.
  14. United version was: 'Fuck off, fuck off, with a hole in your arse, and you'll never walk again, you'll never walk again'.

    Can see Vardy running amok against our defence. 1-3 Leicester.
