URZZZZ Ole having a shocker. Not surprising really. To have Marcus Rashford as your only striker is unforgivable. Always found it amusing United fans picking on Lukaku when he's much superior to Rashford


just pure shite...

Lukaku is great if you're feeding in crosses into the box or if he's running in behind. He has a terrible first touch and really not a footballer. I'm glad he was moved on but he should have been replaced

Ole's coaching/tactics are fooking dire. Two CDM's slow as fook with Lingard/Mata as no.10 LOL


Fred is up there with the worst midfielder I've ever seen at Prem level, never mind United. Matic and Mata were two very good players but they're now finished at the elite level. Lingard would be playing for Southampton if he didn't break through the academy

But Lukaku has consistently finished near the top end of the goals scored. You play to his strengths and he'll get you goals. He's got flaws but that's why he's never made it right to the top. Rashford better than Lukaku? You're having a laugh

United are awful, I'll be very surprised if they finished above 7th in the league. Really think they should begin to prioritise the Europa League now.

Was just such a nothing game. I know United played a 2nd string but there just seemed like there was no will to win or any sort of risk being taken.

Standard Liege were also surprisingly bobbins. Numbers of first touches that resonated with an audible KLANG

Old Man Andrews United are awful... they should begin to prioritise the Europa League now.

Great shout to be fair. It would maybe just about keep Ole in a job if he won it?

What about Fred?!

Cracker of a game at Stamford Bridge. Once again, there'll be a lot of talk on VAR though rather than the quality of football displayed

I like laughing at Real Madrid as much as the next person, but in Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr, do they now have both of the next two superstars?

Not sure Hazard is a good fit there, might be one of those players who is only great at one club when he is the star of the show. He is so suited to English football.

Vinicius Jr has faced a load of criticism this season. The Spanish media have been very critical of his performances and there has been speculation that he is struggling to cope with the move. He cried after scoring against someone a few weeks ago and that was also then used as more evidence he is not coping well.

Good isn't it. 19 years old, just 18 month outside of his home country, and he is getting marmelised by the media and some fans.

Madrid is such a toxic club when they aren't winning things, not sure why any young player from abroad would want to go there. Sort of place you go when you're established.

It's a bit of a lazy accusation to throw around to say that young players make a mistake joining Madrid. All of the regular back four either came up through Castilla (Carvajal) or signed as teenagers Ramos, Marcelo and Varane) two of those from foreign countries, DDOMA. Add to that the likes of Vazquez, Nacho, Asensio and Fede Valverde a player is becoming increasingly important to this team.

Some slip through the net and dont fulfil their potential, which could happen to Vinicius if he doesn't get serious about drastically improving his final ball and his finishing. But then that happens at all clubs.

The Spanish media are what they are, you can't change them.

The Madrid sport dailies have to produce multiple pages of content every single day of the week about Real Madrid.

As a consequence of that they scrutinise every detail and keep making stories out of every little bit of rumour and innuendo they can muster. The fact Perez has reduced their access to the club, particularly "AS" means they are even more desperate for stories.

Tbh the whole Bale thing is a pfucking joke aswell. With CR7 and Ramos, arguably one of their best players for years and treat him like dirt.
