  1. Of course this idiot can see his club win 7-0 and still have shit to bitch about.
  2. I honestly don’t think there’s much between them. They’re both not very good managers and both only have their jobs because of their names and being club legends, not because they’re actually qualified to have those jobs.
  3. Something to be said about just seeing the game out in full control, considering we’ve lost 2 midfielders this match alone. Long season to go and all that.
  4. Pogba’s a horrible bastard. Looks like a serious injury. The ethical thing for United to do now is let us score 10 more and then sign Solksjaer to a 10 year contract
  5. Honestly Neville and Carra both need to rethink their best combined XIs
  6. This might be the best first half I can ever remember at Old Trafford
  7. Oh no I don’t want to lose the #1 Manc hater in the world for any amount of time, let alone against United
  8. That’s not that surprising, Mane worked his arse off against Atletico & he’s on the bench, not totally left out like Fabinho
  9. Fabinho not being in the squad at all is probably due to fitness rather than overthinking
  10. I switched to this at 2-2 and I did not think I would be treated to some absolutely hilariously inept defending by Everton. But I appreciate it, that was brilliant
  11. They’ve uturned and said it’s alright if Newcastle fans want to dress up like Arabs if they want
  12. Rafa will keep a poorly performing striker playing as long as he takes up the positions in the box Rafa wants him to take. If Rondon’s doing that… even at a snails pace … he’ll probably stay on for as long as he physically can. And I don’t think he’ll care if fans don’t like it. But I’m sure he’s desperate for DCL to come back ASAP. He’s the sort of striker Rafa loves.
  13. Nah keep Farke in I want to see Derby’s record broken. Norwich are diabolical
  14. If FSG don’t resign him we should burn down Fenway Park tbh
  15. He's not in his prime though? He's world class, I'm not doubting that - but I don't think he'd be a good fit with us. Carra's combined XI looks more of a reasonable side imo.
  16. I think it was referred to an ethics board for review in January, but since then I haven’t heard anyone talk about it. But it was the second one - charging higher rates for the secret service that had to follow him around to his properties. The Russian claims are weird because the story kept changing, and the Mueller report - if you read the whole thing in full - says that some weird coordination probably did happen, but he could not recommend further action against a president. This paragraph from the wiki of it explains why the Mueller report is at least a bit troubling: “Volume II of the report addresses obstruction of justice. The investigation intentionally took an approach that could not result in a judgment that Trump committed a crime. This decision was based on an Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) opinion that a sitting president is immune from criminal prosecution, and Mueller's belief that it would be unfair to accuse the president of a crime even without charging him because he would have no opportunity to clear his name in court; furthermore it would undermine Trump's ability to govern and preempt impeachment. As such, the investigation "does not conclude that the President committed a crime"; however, "it also does not exonerate him", with investigators not confident of Trump's innocence. The report describes ten episodes where Trump may have obstructed justice while president and one before he was elected,noting that he privately tried to "control the investigation". The report further states that Congress can decide whether Trump obstructed justice and take action accordingly,referencing impeachment.” (from here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mueller_report) And it was weird seeing a US president say so much that sort of looked like what you’d see in opinion articles on RT Honestly though in 2021… the US & Western world talks a big talk on human rights, corruption, and law and order - but are keen to hop into bed with the Saudis and keen to keep strong business ties with China… I do think there’s maybe a case for western countries trying to change countries through diplomacy and influence through closer ties. But I dunno if I’d make that case for Putin’s Russia. They just seem belligerent - even ignoring any claims of election interference anywhere in the world - the annexation of Crimea & using our country as a killing ground for ex-spies (and killing/harming innocent people in the process)… I understand why we’ve got frostier ties with Russia than we did say 10 years ago.
  17. I think we’ll draw or lose just because Old Trafford has fans this time and the atmosphere will probably motivate their players to not be as shit as the last time we played them
