Pandemic of soccerball season 2020/21
Kane as number 9 for Utd with Rashford and Greenford either side would be tasty. Although it’s defenders United need.Posted 2 months ago
Just seen the Richarlison miss. How on earth!? A traffic cone would have scored that.Posted 2 months ago
He was an odd signing. Other than a world class scowl, I’m not sure what he brings. Still, he was cheap. They seemed to be throwing money at anything with legs at that point in their desperation. He might actually improve with some of the new signings. Partly the spotlight will be less on him.Posted 2 months ago

I don’t think Kane would link up well with Rashford and Greenwood, Same with England and Sterling and Sancho, Kane isn’t a good match. Assuming you are playing a 4 3 3, then at utd it would be Martial Greenwood Rashford, and for England Sancho (Greenwood or Rashford) Sterling.
That’s not to say Kane isn’t a quality striker, but he is better in a different formation where his role is a little different.Posted 2 months ago
SpudsPosted 2 months ago
Cracking start for Utd. 😂
Hopefully Pogba and Ole will stay for the rest of the season.Posted 2 months ago
Absolutely ****ing woeful!Posted 2 months ago
We seem unwilling to put some decent crosses in which means everything has to go through the middle and against well organised, deep sitting teams there is almost no space.
Had issues through the middle last year but since Fernandes has come we don’t vary it up enough. Teams worked it out in the last few games
Can’t see the value in keeping Pogba around for the 2 to 3 good performances a year though unless there are no serious offers in for him.Posted 2 months ago
The most entertaining thing about that was Sky pointing out that Zaha definitely didn’t ever ‘meet’ David Moyes’s daughter as a Patrice Evra just claimed 😂
Fair play to him though. Patrice just expressed pretty accurately most United fans opinion of how the club is being run.Posted 2 months ago
Meanwhile, in League One news, let’s have a full national lockdown and end the season now….🚜Posted 2 months ago
Some canny business by Liverpool I think – Alcantara is a bit of an upgrade on Henderson, Milner and Wijnaldum, if he stays fit! Jota too is a good one as cover for Mane and Salah and probably needed as Minamino has struggled.Posted 2 months ago
Finding this whole handball rule pretty incomprehensible and far removed from say a Thierry Henry or a Maradona hand pass into the goal.Posted 2 months ago
Found myself agreeing with Gary Neville this evening and needed a good wash afterwards.
The handball rule was worst last year, this year they have tried to sort it out but still failed to really get it right.Posted 2 months ago
Despite giving away the pen Thiago looks great. Liverpool were dominant today even before the red. That’s two supposed challengers this year looking decidedly ropy already.Posted 2 months ago
Good game between Leicester and Burnley for the neutral.Posted 2 months ago
Even better for a Leicester fan
Top of the league, feels good to be back 😉Posted 2 months ago
WTF? The Baggies are 3 nil up against Chelski at half time?! 😳
After an insane United game, where the post was our man of the matchPosted 2 months ago

postreferee was our man of the match
Pfft! He was no Mike Dean.
I don’t know how you can say that anyway when no Brighton players were booked for their blatant divingPosted 2 months ago
First two games, United get shafted at home by Palace and need ten minutes of extra time to beat Brighton who by all accounts, played them off the park. Bodes well for a good season. As long as Ole and Pogba stay. Love it.Posted 2 months ago
Good to see the rebirth of Fergie-time though eh, Bravissimo? 😃Posted 2 months ago
It’s next-level Fergie time when a pen is awarded after the final whistle, in the 10th minute of 5 minutes of stoppage time.
Also, let’s all laugh at Chelsea (and hope their comeback doesn’t work out). They’re going to be entertaining this season but you’d think they might try and learn to do defending at some point.Posted 2 months ago
Two games in and you’re already masturbating while imagining the days of Ferguson urging a bulging vein faced Keane to scream at referees. It’s not a good sign binners. You need to look to the future. It could be your year.Posted 2 months ago
Nah. It’s not going to be our year.
Just amusing to see that Ole is channeling the spirit of Fergie to take us into previously unchartered waters…
After the final whistle 😃Posted 2 months ago
Normally you feel that way until you put three wins together…stick with it man. Ole is the way forward. Don’t sack him yet.Posted 2 months ago
How long do you think Lampard has to mould all the new signings into something resembling a cohesive unit? Even though he’s a club legend I don’t Abramovich will hesitate to fire him, if they’re not making progress.Posted 2 months ago
Oh dear. Jose isn’t happy.
It looks like handball decisions are going to be providing this season’s controversyPosted 2 months ago
yeah if you get a freekick where the wall is in the box, go for the balls VAR will give you a pen as players defend their wedding tackle 😉Posted 2 months ago
What a finish from Vardy! A Zola-esque cheeky back heal
3-1 to Leicester!! 😳
I stuck a few quid on Leicester as 9/1 odds seemed daftPosted 2 months ago
Remember how Chelsea, Man U, Man City were going to run Liverpool much closer this year – how’s that working out already? 😛
3 penalties to Leicester! It definitely seems like VAR and the lack of crowds is helping the smaller/less successful teams, like Leicester and Man Utd.Posted 2 months ago
I can only assume VAR is being operated by UEFA – in order to make sure cash strapped upstarts, City of Manchester City dont rock the boat too much.Posted 2 months ago
There’s been some absolutely bonkers results so far this season, but that’s right up there. City’s defence were seriously competing for being worse than ours who went AWOL at Brighton yesterday
Three penalties weren’t down to VAR, they were down to City’s defence getting repeatedly skinned by Vardy and Maddison
I expect that Liverpool v Arsenal will be 8-5 or something daft tomorrowPosted 2 months ago
The template to beat city is well known now, most teams still need a bit of luck, but they know it is doable. Pep needs to show he can adapt. Funny thing is he himself say’s he needs to earn a new contract, it is almost as if he is urging the club to be less in awe of him and give some constructive criticism.
2 of the penalties were dodgy as **** though, the bottom half of the internet would have gone into meltdown if Sterling had gone down for those 2.Posted 2 months ago
2 of the penalties were dodgy as **** though
Well, of course.Posted 2 months ago
Every one of those penalties was absolutely nailed on. You can’t have an argument against any of them. It was down to defenders getting skinned.
It’s not like any were dodgy handballs like Spuds today or Lindelofs last weekend.
Speaking of which: hats of to Steve Bruce for saying in his post match press interview that it was never a penalty and the new rule is ridiculousPosted 2 months ago
2 of the Leicester pens were soft but not that dodgy. Some great goals in that game also though, especially loved Mahrez clean finish on the first one.Posted 2 months ago
An unbelievable strike from Mahrez. No keeper is ever going to get anywhere near a shot like that. But the Vardy backheel was on another level. Just having the awareness to even attempt that
I remember watching Zola do something similar and thinking WTF?!!! How has he just done that?!!
We’re 3 weeks in to the season and there’s been some truly sublime skill on display alreadyPosted 2 months ago
Quote of the day about Suarez going to Athletico:Posted 2 months ago
Striker partner Diego Costa, added: “He is very good, one of us can do the fighting and the other can do the biting.”
Haha, that’s genius!Posted 2 months ago
Great quote.Posted 2 months ago
Really does not take much to put Vardy on the floor. Watched the game and it as more about fooling the City defenders.
