    **Official** English Football Season 2023/24

    I don’t trust them to be able to bring in a replacement. We have bigger issues with the squad than him. Will INEOS be able to let the high earners out of contract leave? The Glazers have been against that. They don’t understand that the market sets the rate not you. The squad in general needs a...

    **Official** English Football Season 2023/24

    The videos all over social of the roof leaking badly perfectly encapsulate the Glazers time at United. Coming the same week as a recommendation for a new training facility. The same sort of attitude they have shown in Tampa for facilities. IE expecting the city to pay

    You should watch the CP goals. He really can’t do it or won’t. Playing him with a fit 19 yo CB is malpractice. Amarabat was ok in his preferred position but just seems like a slow version of Fred. Overall 1-0 isn’t a terrible result when Casemiro and McTominay mean you’re often playing with 9...

    I don’t think the Glazers value the position at all as those players aren’t always the most flashy shirt sellers. I also think that ETH doesn’t value a proper defensive mid. His singular focus on FDJ suggests he just wants high level ball control vs someone like Rice.

    Amrabat, Casemiro, Fred, Matic, Schneiderlin is not a list of high performers. Fred was always average but not cheap. Casemiro and Matic had 1 good season in them. They have spent some money but not like they have on guys like Pogba, Sancho etc.

    Consistent reports since Ferguson left that none of the managers had control over players rings true. Seems like some of the time they listened to the manager but often they prioritized established names that could sell shirts. Allegedly Mount was of that ilk. It’s been clear a long time United...

    **Official** English Football Season 2023/24

    Casemiro, Erickson and Amarabat look like 3 of the slowest mids I’ve seen and we had all of them on the field with 36 yo Evan’s. Casemiro looks so uninterested in playing CB I’m now wondering if ETH is tanking so he can leave.

    If you sack him then I don’t think you can get a manager that will have expectations of the players or that has a very specific style requiring players that match it. That just hasn’t worked. Might as well hire someone who can adjust to the talent and grind out a CL spot while you clean house...

    Wingers or forwards who don’t track back isn’t a uniquely United problem. It did leave a lot of space for the Liverpool fullbacks to exploit though. Listened to Neville’s comments and he called some of their play madness and schoolboy. He seems convinced it’s coaching since it isn’t addressed...

    Dropped points from 3 penalties in 3 days. 2 of them soft AF. Looks like refs want ETH sacked like some of the senior players. This United team is so soft. Any game where it’s physical and the refs allow contact they shrink from it. There often isn’t challenges until they down a goal. What’s...

    They rely on Mainoo in the middle for energy and he looked tired for maybe the 1st time this year. Garnacho didn’t have it today either.

    Shaw, Martinez and Casemiro were back from injury but only Casemiro looked like a complete passenger.

    Mainoo was covering that space before he went off. I get why ETH sent on McTominay for a goal but it was always going to open up the game as McTominay can’t be bothered. The back 5 isn’t good enough to not have cover. I’m guessing at Ajax it was.

    He was solidly home reffing all game with tackles and free kicks. Tried his best the last 10 mins to manufacture a goal. 2 yellows in 10s is BS. Yellows for diving is supposed to be a thing and he didn’t give a blatant one earlier.

    I know you can’t play today like Keane did but there are so many matches where I just wish we had someone like him out there to show some passion and make a tackle before you concede a goal. Casemiro last year the closest we have had in along time. Him being not up to it and past it (then...

    Question on the Liverpool example. Where they ever hated like United seem to be now? I don’t really remember before 85 when I was in school and started following. The Liverpool parallels are there. Current United is not likely to have a squad good enough or deep enough to win the league. Cup...

    I don’t think the current social media/media environments help clubs at all. Not for football. The constant United in crisis stories for the last 10 years generate clicks and keep them in the headlines so help the marketing profile. The tabloids were always doing this in a way but it just seems...

    He tried to offload both Maguire and McTominay and then both ended up starting due to injuries and the low squad quality. I would go full Jose with a double pivot, the best 4 defenders fit (so no Dalot or Reguilon) with your best 2 wingers who will track and just play McTominay as the sole AM...
