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

Hoping that Man Utd win tonight.
Mourinho shown with a glum look after analysis of the low level of sides beaten by Spurs since he took over (West Ham, Olympiakos and Bournemouth).

Solskjaer gets to stay in the job to oversee their mid-table mediocrity.

From Despair To Where? I thought Tyler was a Wycombe fan. Brian Moore was a Gillingham fan (and life president IIRC) as well as a vastly over rated, butt clenchingly shit commentator with a blatant overfondness for Arsenal.


Alan Parry was the Wycombe fan/ chairman?

Unless he's dead, he still is


Is he still chairman?

Re: TV rights

Tyldesley is such a Man Utd fanboy, he can't stop talking about them. He's also a prime example of the hyperbole over content style of commentary much loved by the modern crop of commentarybots. I think it's an ITV thing. It's a light entertainment channel and I think they are directed to "ent...

Re: FA Cup away day memories

BLYTH - the longest day (and a half!). Did you go? Believe we got a draw and won the replay 6-1...and set up a 4th round tie with Arsenal who were double winnners then, Charlie George and co I was there. Epic journey. Train left about 5am. Awash with beer by Newcastle where we get into can throwing...

Re: FA Cup away day memories

Man City in 93. 1-1 and deserved the replay. Another step in McGhee's revolution. Scott Taylor scored but we lost the replay of course (Niall Quinn??) Talking of City,1968 0-0 at Maine Road, anticipating a giant-killing back at Elm Park. Little did we know that City had a real off-day in the first ...

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

Old Man Andrews If Poch is availble United would be mental to not go and get him, he is exactly what they need right now. Give him a bit of money and he could turn them back into a top 4 club.


Let's hope he doesn't go there then. :wink:

If they lose at home to Mourinho's Spurs on Wednesday I could see Ole getting the push.

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

nah they have players that play reasonably well next to VVD but agree about the rest Agreed, I think if VVD goes down for a significant number of games, they may struggle at the back. To an extent, they're struggling at the back as it is. 2 clean sheets all season, 0 at Anfield. Although they haven...

Re: ArsenaLOL

Royal Rother Simeone. Time might be right for him.

Can he speak English though?

I have never understood fewer words of English coming out of anyone’s mouth than Emery’s. Completely incomprehensible to me.


How many English players have Arsenal got though? :wink:

Eh????? Why? He is nowhere near the level to manage a huge club like that, he would get eaten alive. Arsenal need a proven winner, someone who can come in and transform the club. They need a big personality and a big ego. Why? - he has achieved all he can for Bournemouth, got great experience and I...

One final thing, Chris Gunter. I thought he played defensively much better than we have come to expect and generally had a good game. Unfortunately for their goal it was an unchallenged header for little Harrison, Gunter's man, and although it was a swift and efficient break on their part we did ac...

What a depressing thread seeing the teams submitted with hardly a decent player amongst them when compared with the previous decade-Gylfi of course is the exception.

Re: BFTT Leeds

I thought it was a masterclass (again) from Hernandez in an outstanding midfield display where he and his fellow midfielders were allowed too much time. Overall though it is where we are at-a reasonable hard-working Championship side, a skilful midfield but a hopeless set of forwards. Bowen was hone...
