  1. The club is a joke from top to bottom and it shows exactly why so many of us opposed the Glazers from day one. Not only because of the way they bought the club with the fans money but because they are more interested in selling shirts to gloryhunters in America and Asia than the fans on their own doorstep. That is why I can't be doing with this joke of a club anymore. The whole model seems to be about sponsorship and making money for the inbred Glazer freaks than about having a successful football team. They appointed Woodward who might be able to con a few foreigners into investing money into this absolutely dull football club but he hasn't got a clue about football - rather like the Glazers. The fact that his first signing was Marouane Fellaini (who makes Anderson look like Paul Scholes) should have sent alarm bells ringing like it did for the fans. The club has no idea what they are doing. They have appointed three different managers since Fergie retired and none of them have anything in common apart from playing boring, eyesore football and getting piss poor results. Now they have a squad full of players signed by four managers with differing philosophies and it shows when these lazy useless cunts walk around the pitch watching the opposition play every week. Then they appoint Mourinho, an absolute cancer, who I stated five years ago was as far removed from what a United manager should be as is humanly possible. It gives me no pleasure to be proved right as it was inevitable. From throwing players under the bus to park the bus shite football to whining about not having more money to waste on shit like Bailly and Lindelof to claiming that losing to Sevilla isn't a massive embarrassment to United... the man is a cunt. I'll tell you who is a bigger cunt though, that cunt Pogba. A bang average footballer who never looked special in the reserves. He was about our 3rd or 4th best midfielder in the U 18s too. This cunt would be out the door right now if Mourinho had any bollocks but he panders to the overrated waste of oxygen. If you thought I hated Rooney I'd happily throw this cunt under a bus - literally. He is without doubt the worst signing in the club's history and I can only think of Bebe who is worse and not by much. Oh for an Alan Smith or Djemba-Djemba instead of this dabbing piece of shit. If United had anyt sense they'd fuck Woodward, Mourinho and Pogba all off by lunchtime

  2. That was the old Rule Harvsky.... My last decree will be as follows... 'No more Decapitation' My historians have brought unto me the parchments of Ye Olde Wiki where it is written that the Crown represents Power, Legitimacy, Victory, Triumph, Honor and Glory as well as Immortality, Righteousness and with a bit of luck Resurrection ( around the age of 27 would be a bonus and not as some worm ridden zombie corpse ) I think it only fitting that as a former member of the Royalty or Elite on here that I should be allowed to return unharmed ( and escorted for safety purposes ) until we happen upon my former wooden dwelling of old so I may tend my pigs and milk my cows and 'muck out' as instructed by the wife... A plaque should be put up in my honor at the local Tavern where I spend many a night gambling and drinking and all the Wenches in the area should treat me as some sort of celebrity playboy around the town... This is my final act as current MOTM...

  3. It's been meltdown free and more mature from this member. Less arguments, more informative especially when it comes to, with all due respect, the football from the lesser-known regions of the world. At least on this forum, anyway. We know that this member sometimes tries his hardest to impress. Occasionally too hard to his detriment but September has been nothing but positive in our eyes. The knowledge he delivers about obscure Peruvian football in the form of each giving us a team to back has been a big factor in the voting stakes. Not to mention the focus on international youth tournaments. Congratulations to you @Blue! Keep it up We tried to give the award to him but once we gave him the news, he was too busy celebrating...

  4. Forgot to add actually, compare how the Glazers have run United since Fergie retired to how Citeh are run. Their setup is absolutely world class from the training facilities to the whole footballing side of things as well as the commercial side. When they do something there is a clear vision in place and a clear direction they want to go in. I used to mock them and probably never gave them any credit for what they did but I can hand on my heart say that Citeh are everything that United should be right now. They have a great youth system, great scouting, great director of football, great manager who plays great football, great owners who genuinely care about the club (and the local fans to be fair, Citeh do a lot more for the locals than United). It pains me to say all this but it is true. Also, note how managers like Guardiola, Klopp and Pochettino actually coach players and improve them rather than bin them off after a few bad games and demand more money to sign other players like Jose does. He is an absolute fraud and I maintain that if Paul Scholes goal v Porto was not wrongly disalowed nobody outside Portugal would even know who Mourinho is now

  6. Personally I'd like Pochettino but I don't see why he'd leave Spurs for United at this time. I wouldn't if I was him. One final thought on what is missing at United from former United Sports Psychologist Bill Beswick:

  7. He was the man I wanted at the time but he was well out of his depth. I was critical of the Zaha signing by Fergie at the time but he had a really good pre-season and was farmed out on loan which was odd. Then it was the claim that drawing away at Swansea or whoever is a good result which made me cringe and reminded me of Hodgson at Liverpool. Then came the awful football and the signing of Fellaini. However, I don't think he was given enough time and I don't think Van Gaal was any better. If Ferguson came to United today he'd never have been given time to succeed because football is so fickle and money oriented. He'd have lasted a couple of years at best. It's clear with Mourinho though that he has lost the dressing room and that things will never get better. He has to go in my opinion but so does Woodward and especially Pogba who needs to be made an example of. Players cannot undermine the manager (even Roy Keane who said nothing but the truth about his teammates - he was right but he undermined Fergie and you can't have that. Manager's word is final) and he has to go

  9. I was hoping for an underdog victory today but sadly West Ham were too strong for us. After a week which saw United draw at home to a newly promoted side (no disrespect to Wolves - they have a better manager and players than United do), get dumped out of what used to be known to United fans as "It's Only The League Cup" at home by a Championship side managed by someone who has about half a dozen games in professional management (no disrespect to Frank Lampard who I think has the potential to be an outstanding manager) and the absolute scum who pose as 'Journalists' in the UK making issues out of a manager reprimanding his player you'd think that the players would come together and give the fans who pay their wages something to cheer about (which winning away at West Ham or anywhere these days sadly is) but I can honestly say that was one of the diabolical displays I have ever seen by a United side. Not one single player showed any sort of passion or desire let alone any sort of footballing ability befitting the United shirt. I used to slag players off during Fergie's last few years for the same reason but, blimey, if I knew how things would pan out I'd have saved my vitriol for these absolute phonies and showponies who somehow play for Manchester United. I can honestly say I would swap our entire squad for West Ham's and their manager too. They can shove their horrific ground though. I'd be gobsmacked if United make the top six this season

  10. I don't think he's got it in him to do it from the start too often without his body breaking down and I think he now realises that and has accepted his current role in the squad. He's a superb option for us coming off the bench. If we keep him fit there's not many teams who can bring that sort of quality on.

  13. Mourinho clearly needs to go, performances like these, you can always tell when it's all over, a point of no return (watch them equalise 30 seconds after I hit submit reply and go on to win 3-2 now). Problem for United is that the club they are these days they'll probably make a vanity appointment (Zidane) rather than someone like the rest of the top six clubs would go for (apart from maybe Chelsea) who can actually sort this mess out over the course of a few years and in a sensible fashion. Most of these players are past it or simply never were 'it', not by Manchester United's standards and even the ones who are obviously talented enough have mostly shit attitudes by the looks of it. I think a good Director of Football to oversee a massive overhaul is United's next most important appointment rather than the new manager/coach. Another reason Mourinho needs to leave as he'll never work under those conditions with that lack of control.

  15. He did actually get nicked and questioned while he was in Manchester about rape 2006ish I think, something which seems to have been completely removed from the internet? It's a very hard one, sexual crimes are incredibly difficult to prove especially when it's so long ago. I support any attempt to make things easier for people to come forward quickly on this type of stuff but at the same time someone's name shouldn't be sullied by something which he hasn't been and won't be convicted of.

  16. Joselu and Perez both scored against us last season you know I actually think you'll go and get a point next week, I'm serious, it wasn't your defence that was of a concern it was your attack, and you'll be able to get a 0-0 draw. That result will be the springboard, you would hope, for improvement. You were piss poor yesterday but I still don't think you'll go down, although I think it's ludicrous that you're still talking of survival every season. You touched on the only slight concern for me yesterday in that for all our possession we didn't really create many chances in open play. Our goals were a set piece (miracle!!!!!) and a penalty, and we didn't exactly force a load of saves. Since that shambles at Bournemouth we've won both league games by two goals and won at Wolves on penalties. It's a definite improvement but I think Everton next week will be telling. I'm inclined to say draw.

  19. Kenyon has apparently said that he thinks there's great scope to improve our commercial revenue. Remember around a year or two ago when it came out that Newcastle were the only club in the whole of top flight football to have a lower commercial revenue now than 10 years ago. All other clubs saw their revenue rocket. There's also a good in depth analysis by a football finance uni professor showing how when Mike Ashley bought the club Newcastle were in the same financial position as Tottenham. Under Ashley Newcastle were left behind and collapsed in key financial areas, with Tottenham now more than twice the financial size of Newcastle. Mike Ashley was at the game yesterday. His first home game in 18 months. He had 4 bodyguards dressed like the FBI. When fans chanted against him he started laughing.

  21. And a lot of people want Kanté to be moved back into his natural position. Hazard has been our best player for years now and we've always had this over reliance on him and this over reliance was actually more apparent under Mourinho believe it or not. Thought we did well yesterday but thought we could have seen out the game a bit better. I know we're playing a decent team who were looking to get back into the game so we were bound to come under some pressure and there's not an awful lot you can do about Sturridge's goal but yesterday was the first time I saw us sit off a bit and we failed to break up the pressure well enough. Subs didn't help proceedings. Barkley was absolutely dreadful when he came on and this is why I don't like him as a player, as with his composure, intelligence and confidence he came up short again. Shame as he's an English lad and I want him to do well but he just doesn't convince me. Think it's his misplaced pass which leads to their goal as well. And Moses. We've got a lot out of him over the years but he shouldn't really be here still. Not sure why Sarri isn't using Fabregas more and yesterday was perfect for him to provide some composure and help release some of the pressure by getting us on the ball. These little cameos are what Fabregas is perfect for. Overall very happy with what I saw but we need to learn from that last 20 minutes particularly for when we play another top team.

  22. The team had been in decline probably since Ronaldo left. The club remained so competitive because of Fergie's ridiculous will to win that rubbed off on the players. I think he found it difficult though to maintain those standards with the type of players that he brought in because the mentality just wasn't there. I think the difference between Souness and Moyes is that Souness rightly identified that many changes had to be made but he made the wrong signings. Moyes didn't really sign anyone but that's arguably down to the ineptitude of Woodward rather than Moyes. I just feel that since Fergie went the club has become nothing more than a Real Madrid/PSG/Chelsea/Citeh, just throwing money at players and when that doesn't work throw more. When I say Chelsea and Citeh though, I mean when they were first taken over and, to be fair, they didn't really have much choice as they were playing catch up. I'd say both, Citeh in particular, are both operating in a better way than United on the football side which is the most important side. If you are successful on the pitch everything else will fall into place

  23. Gary Neville was right when he said that the Fergie way of doing things is over and that the Director of Football route is the road we need to go down. Woodward might be good at conning old ladies out of their savings but when it comes to football he pays £90 for a dabber/instagram addict, pays £2m a month to someone named after Joan Collins' character in Dynasty and signed Fellaini - for Manchester United. Clearly he should stick to making money for the the Glazers erm I mean United and leave football to someone who knows what they are doing. CUE PUNCHLINE... We need a winner... not an equaliser

  25. It's so weird, most people are obviously fascinated with nature and animals and get all excited watching them in wild (just like that example of Benny the beluga shows hehe), yet at the same time they also have no qualms about dumping their garbage and sewage and chemical toxic waste and plastic to ruin the environment. The whole thing with plastic basically just got out of hand and we're drowning in it as a result; but it's a problem that's not that easy to solve now whereas if you consider that millions of people are still living in developing world without running water or sanitation or waste management and businesses/governments still do nothing about it even if they easily could; just goes to show that nobody really gives a fuck - about people OR nature, as long as it doesn't affect them directly.

  28. What does Pogba actually want? He was given the armband as an olive branch, even yesterday Mourinho came over to pat him on the back and Pogba just ignored him. If he's not making any effort to build bridges with Mourinho then he's in no position to be the one who says I've had enough and go on strike. Silly cunt. And let's not pretend this is about Mourinho putting the shackles on. Pogba played a disciplined role for France at the World Cup, actually performed for once and didn't go on strike against Deschamps. This isn't about how Pogba is being asked to play, it's about proving he's the biggest rooster in the pen at Manchester United and now he's come back as a World Cup winner while Mourinhos position is looking threatened Pogba is pressing his advantage. Again I'll add that I'm not defending Mourinho because people on here have a habit of reading what they want to read and missing your point if you aren't absolutely explicit, but there has at least been some evidence that Mourinho is trying to build bridges here by giving Pogba the armband, putting him on penalties, praising him publicly, even though I know that still means he could be, and probably is, being a cunt about it all out of the public eye. However, I don't understand how I seem to be almost the only one on here who can actually look past the hilarity of Jose's shambles long enough to be disgusted by Pogba's cynical and very transparent behaviour.

  31. 'The Player' After watching the end, I realized I had already seen this one, many years ago. But it was a great watch all the same, with an awesome cast. 8/10 'Midnight in Paris' Ok, I might be exaggerating a bit with the score I'm giving it, but I saw this last Saturday, not feeling very well and was just hoping for another decent Woody Allen movie. After watching practically all of his classics, I can say that this one is, for me, among his 3 best works, hands down. Great cast, with a good story. Marion Cotillard is a Goddess. 9/10

  34. Fair result after a terrific game of football. Throughout the past several years, it honestly feels like Liverpool have the advantage at the Bridge and we have the advantage at Anfield. Liverpool love screamers here. With Liverpool, it was a matter of poor finishing whereas with us, it was a matter of poor decision making in the final third. Hazard and Willian are guilty of slowing the play down, however the former provides much more in regards to overall creativity. Moses is Moses and Morata is Morata. Giroud was in VVD's pocket the entire game, who I'm convinced is the best CB in the league now. Looked like Terry the way he commanded everything. David Luiz and Ruidger did well given the amount of holes our midfield exposed. This is still a work in progress I believe. I love Sarri. It's great to actually play progressive football and to actually force teams to let us play our way when we would normally sit back and defend. Looking forward to every match now given Sarri will always stick with his plan. And if it isn't working, he doesn't go with plan B, he makes Plan A better. Still think it's between City and Liverpool given they have elite attackers whereas we solely rely on the brilliance of one player. 7 in 8 games now for Hazard. He is slowly proving my point in regards to being held back.

  35. Not many teams will get a result against Chelsea at The Bridge so on that note we did ok. Still, had our attackers played how they can then we would have won that fairly easily. Good result all in all though.

  36. Halftime thoughts: I’m irritated we’re down a goal. But our performance has been good and it didn’t come from some stupid mistake, it was a good goal from a good player in a good side in a good moment of good football. I’m enjoying that both sides are giving it a go and it’s big sides playing without being a cagey snoozefest. I’m seriously impressed with this Chelsea side. Not many sides have tried to give it a go against us and Chelsea are going toe to toe and looking relatively comfortable, although we’ve had our moments. I think we’ve had more chances. I think we can still grab an equaliser and I hope we can at least grab a point from this. But I really really would like to see our front 3 go back to the sharpness they had last season and us getting a comfy result in the second half.

  37. So far this Chelsea look like the best side we’ve faced in 2018 barring Real Madrid, including those matches against City in the CL. So I think it’s a pretty good match so far. Even though we’re losing it’s 2 sides playing swashbuckling stuff. If we keep the pace and intensity up we will keep making chances and get back into it. We’ve got to be less sloppy in the final third. Story of our season so far.

  38. This is absolutely horrific viewing. I like Calvert-Lewin but there's no way he offers more up front than Tosun even if Cenk hasn't scored this season. Have to mention Seri's elbow on Sigurdsson and that other bloke studding Richarlison in the thigh and both going without even a booking. Neither should have been reds but both could have been if the referee was in a different mood. Sessegnon should have put them ahead after our defence went AWOL out of nowhere there. Shock horror.

  44. It don't half remind me of when we played these away around four years ago in our first year up, they were winless and we turned up and succumbed to a 1-0 loss. I do think they're going to be under-estimated by people mind. They aren't that bad. They came here and beat us more comfortably than the 1-2 scoreline suggests in April and they've had a nasty start - strangely between both Leicester and Newcastle, we've played all of the top six and have delivered a 2-1 loss on every occasion. I want to think Bournemouth was a blip, Huddersfield last week was much better (granted against poor opposition) and Wolves I thought was a decent performance too. I'm still on the unsure on Puel camp here and don't really get how either 'side' is so veciforous in their views. I've put 1-0 Newcastle on predictions but I'm covering my arse a bit. I expect a tight game. Draw probably isn't a bad bet.

  45. Our home league record in the past five says a different story. Chelsea - Liverpool 2-1 Chelsea - Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea - Liverpool 1-3 Chelsea - Liverpool 1-2 Chelsea - Liverpool 1-0 Two wins, two defeats and one draw. Lost two out of the last three. We've recently done better at Anfield than at the Bridge. After our win last night confidence should be sky high, however our defensive flaws were also very evident. Hopefully Rudiger can be ready for this one.

Both will believe in their own self importance and no doubt, we’re days away from a controversial pre-match press conference and a new haircut from the two of them and frankly, it’s utterly mind numbing, predictable and beyond monotonous. Get rid of both. Both as equally vaccuous and dull as each other.

What surprised me doing this is that I can't think of a single atrocious CB we've had playing regularly, and yet we haven't had a solid defense for a decade.
