- World cup countdown
Interesting in the papers that some of the Man Utd players who would have been shoe-ins 9 months ago at the start of the season are so damaged by their performances (for which I blame them and not Moyes, BTW, they were by all accounts rubbish again yesterday), that they are far from obvious candidates now.
And Ross Barkley – surely has to go, but how close is he to being in the eleven, or if not that, the genuine sub’s (as opposed to those going to provide cover in case of injury or suspension)Posted 3 years agoMSPSubscriber
Just 39 days to go now, starting to get excited about all the top class football we are going to see, and some England matches.
To start the discussion off, just saw this on the BBC,
and can’t help but think that a top manager and team would look at that potential problem and try and do something about it, rather than just come out with “You sign up for the World Cup as it’s going to be. It’s not our job to keep them occupied.”
Maybe he should face up to the fact that it his is job to make sure the team turn up for each game in the best physical and mental state possible, which also includes managing their downtime.Posted 3 years agoaaMember
I must say, i didn’t know what i thought when i read the “its not our job to keep them occupied”. My first thought was, yes it is. But in the context of a few players saying they were bored at the last world cup i think Roy is saying that the players are adults (or big boys at least). They know there will be time where there’s no training,no games, no swimming off ipanema SO be prepared to sort yourself out.
My tip….england scrape through the group, then get knocked out
i am looking forward to it though. I think ill be very tired.Posted 3 years agoskiMember
Well, I bought my Panini World Cup sticker album yesterday. One of the best thing about being a grown-up is that I can afford as many packs of stickers as I want, rather than being limited by pocket money.
They were free in our local Tescos the other night included 6 stickersPosted 3 years ago
