Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

There's an interesting piece in today's paper that says the United squad face a 25% pay cut for next season if they don't qualify for the Champions League. The way they spin it is that Pogba and De Gea are after a pay rise in their new contracts to effectively negate that pay cut, or bonus that isn'...

Re: The footballer gets arrested thread

That's what the left has done to society. As stupid and as childish as that is, there will probably now be this silly faux outrage and demand to punish him by all these stay at home moms, politicians and media institutions. Just fvck off trying to control everyone into a robotic trance. It was sill...

Re: The footballer gets arrested thread

Bit bemused that he's still living in Nether Alderley, seven years after he left United for Leicester. That's a trek and a half to get to Chelsea's Cobham training ground. I doubt he's been doing a daily commute! When you've got that kind of money why wouldn't you have a house 'back home' as well a...

Re: Racism in football (John Terry spin-off)

I can't see a whole section of away fans being escorted out when they won't even ask them to sit down for fear of sparking a riot! No, but the whole section could be banned for the next game.

For some grounds/clubs perhaps, but not all by any means, and probably not at all for away fans.

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

Or to put it another simpler way, if Liverpool had sold players for a total of £5bn, their agents fees would be roughly the same. I disagree on that. Agents are often paid to help the offloading of players. Net transfer spend is an odd one though. For a start, how long do you go back to count trans...

Re: Racism in football (John Terry spin-off)

It goes without saying that Rose, or any other player, should be free to play without getting that kind of abuse, but it should also be remembered that Rose has also had issues with his mental health and so that should probably put a slightly different context to his comments.

only two seasons with more goals (13 & 16) but lacked the assists in those years yeah, it's just one of those stats that mean little... such as LFC averaged 5th position over the span of St Steven's career Well, having just checked it, Gerrard got 9 assists in the season he score 16 goals, from...

Pogba..... who this season has been one of the best players. I don't think he was anything of the sort under Mourinho, and he's started to revert to type over recent games.

So Moises Kean is subjected all game to monkey noises from Cagliari fans - he responds by scoring twice, and celebrating in front of those Cagliari fans. And then he gets support from his team-mates, right? Well, no. He's had one player support him, Blaise Matuidi, who is also black. And Juventus c...

Life jacket for Ole he is out of his depth. The man who was sacked by Cardiff and manages Norway’s top team in charge of the biggest club in the world. United are the joke that keeps on giving.

OGS appointed on a 3 year deal. If he gets a big budget in the summer I can see them being right up there next season. Not sure I can agree with that yet. He has done well by a) not being Mourinho b) being a nice guy c) not being the permanent boss - so players are more relaxed Now that c has chang...

Re: England - the future....

Look out for Hendrichs(sp?) who played right-back in the first half and, following a load of substitutions, left-back in the second and was a man amongst boys. I'd agree, he had a very accomplished game and looks a very good player (and has played for the Senior side). I felt a bit for Sessengon. H...

There is a risk that we get a little too carried away through these qualifiers, as we have done before but that's where I'm hoping the Nations League will play another important part in putting some perspective on our progress.
