Can make a strong case that the players downed tools towards the end of Mourinho, Solskjaer time as manager and didn't pick them up at all for Rangnick but I don't think from watching the matches that you can say the players aren't playing for Ten Hag. It's more the reality that injuries has highlighted the lack of quality and strength in depth of the squad. It's a squad filled with players that are either past their best or will never will be good enough. Without Martinez, Shaw they struggle to play out from the back. Without Mainoo in midfield they struggle to string consecutive passes together and without the focal point and work rate of Hollund in the number 9 position it's basically like playing with 10 men.

Low quality match but a hard earned and deserved win in the end, created the best chances in game and eventually took one. Improvement from the league game in the City ground when lost and conceded two goals.

Quarter final exit looks most likely now after that draw and will do well to avoid a trimming speaking of a trimming it should be at least 2 or 3 goal margin victory for the blue half in the Manchester Derby on Sunday.

Quote from: Wildweasel74 on February 24, 2024, 08:56:45 PMKerry are playing with no sweeper plus midfielder  dropping bck, wide open all the time.

Had held Dublin to 0-5 in this 2nd half before that 3rd goal but damage done first half and all night they haven't been able to handle Con O'Callaghan.

That defeat and win for Villa ends whatever slim hope there ever was for a top 4 finish. Fulham deserved their win but the two goals conceded pretty much summed up United this season.  1st truly woeful defending from set piece. 2nd goal when pushing hard for a winner themselves they get caught out on the break, Maguire not wanting to tackle as he was booked and Lindelof couldn't get back as injured taken off soon after.

Quote from: Wildweasel74 on February 22, 2024, 05:13:25 PMAway to Galway this weekend but can't see a win, our record against Galway is terrible, even when they had a bad team.Derry focus on winning their last 2 home games. Dublin may be tough if they need the points.

I would be very surprised if Derry don't win comfortably on Sunday. Yes, they nearly always lose to Galway but Derry are flying with a full team out at the moment while Galway are pretty much down to an FBD league selection. I'm hoping they can somehow keep it competitive for as long as possible.
There is nothing like a proper match to bring players on . Derry should win comfortably unless Galway click

Galway at home.
Derry will probably be missing Lynch, McKinless and Murphy.
This Derry team are in unfamiliar territory in Div1 going up against a team that have the Div1 experience and who generally always beat us.
It's a 50:50 game boys and girls.

I even heard the team bus has a soft wheel.....what else could go wrong for us!  ;D  ;)

In all seriousness, given where we've come from, I don't think any Derry fans are overly confident of any game. We've been beaten so many times in games where we should have won.
I agree, on current form we are favourites for this game - but Galway are no slouches and we are no world beaters (despite the performance against Monaghan last weekend).
There's not the vast chasm between the two that some seem to suggest there is.

I know Derry see Galway as their bogey team over the years but this weekend Galway will be without Damien Comer,Shane Walsh, Jack Glynn,Liam Silke,Cillian McDaid and Matthew Tierney, Paul Conroy very doubtful after going off injured last weekend. So if Derry aren't able to win against Galway team without that amount of first choice players then they'll probably never beat the bogey.

Martinez out replaced by the clumsy and error prone Maguire. Shaw out and replaced by a 4th choice centre back lindelof. Hollund out and will likely be replaced by Rashford who won't put in the work rate of Hollund and Rashford moved from the wing could mean Anthony restored to the starting team.

The one thing the injuries highlights is how weak the squad is with zero strength in depth, Jim Radcliffe and Co need to focus improving the squad starting this summer before even thinking about some state of the art Old Trafford.

Back? He never left. His obsession with me and thinking I'm another poster is a bit wacko. I've all of his accounts blocked ages ago having zero interest in what he has to say. He's near 50 years of age time that Laoislad with his multiple accounts cops himself on than playing a man child on here.

Not much luck with injuries this season and the main reason for such a struggle all season has been the injuries especially with the amount of defenders out. It will be uphill challenge now for top 4/5 without Shaw and Martinez for extended period of time

Quote from: Armagh18 on February 19, 2024, 05:20:41 PMWhats the story with that Malacia fella? Injured? Wheres AWB? Would be better playing him on the right and Dalot on the left no?

Shaw and Martinez are huge loses.

A knee injury for Malacia and it required two operations. AWB got injured in training and before the Luton game Ten Hag said he was a few weeks away from returning. Getting the best out of Dalot on the right at the moment.

Quote from: Captain Scarlet on February 19, 2024, 11:11:55 AMFeel sorry for Glenn Ryan?! He knew the media were on the job all week but gave them another story when he attacked a local journalist who has always been very supportive.
Basically accused him of not reporting something and then refused to back down. This is in front of the Examiner, The Indo and The Times...

We are easy fodder on and off the field.

Kildare chairman comments was in no way helpful to begin with.  Looking at their remaining fixtures it's looking like relegation but they can avoid the Tailtean Cup by reaching the Leinster final, will likely have to beat Louth,Westhmeath in order to do that.  Last year just about avoided the Tailtean Cup and then improved as were competitive against Dublin in the Leinster championship, finished 2nd in their group and lost a fine margin contest to Monaghan who went on to reach the AI semi final.

Cork to avoid the Tailtean Cup will rely on how they do in the league as they are unlikely to reach the Munster final with playing Kerry in the semi final.  They have Fermanagh (A) Kildare (H) Meath (A) Armagh (H)  might get enough points from that list Meath match looking like a big one and Armagh could rest players for the round 7 game if into the final the following week.

Quote from: trailer on February 19, 2024, 09:15:54 AMUtd should have won the game 10-0. some poor finishing. Onana with yet another mistake to allow them back into the game.
The mistake for the first Utd goal from the Luton player. Christ almighty. If one of the under 14s did that in soccer you'd never play him again. How some of these players get to this level is beyond me.

He's made plenty of mistakes in his debut season but I wouldn't mark that down as one.

It was deflected cross off Maguire and fell basically on the head of Carlton Morris.  Onana did as most keepers would do, made himself big in an effort to stop it. Shaw should have reacted better then again Shaw should never have started and will likely miss a number of weeks of action now while his replacement at left back will be a centre back Lindelof, along with Martinez out that's a far from ideal situation for the upcoming games.

Three points earned against a Luton side side whom at home have pushed Man City,Arsenal all the way and drew with Liverpool.  After a good start to the 1st half Luton was allowed to turn the rest of the half into chaos and in truth United was lucky to be leading 2-1 at half time.  Subs at half time brought more control to the game and had United taken just one of their 4 big chances 2nd half they would have won that match more comfortably.

Quote from: Cunny Funt on February 14, 2024, 05:37:01 PMFinally got around to watching Wonka the other night. A good family watch the best of these flicks since the classic 70s film and Timothée Chalamet was the best IMO doing the Wonka role since Gene Wilder.

Has there not only been one other playing Wonka in that time?

Johnny Depp.

Daire Cregg (Boyle, Roscommon)

Would be few complaints had he won the man of the match award. His fellow Roscommon forward Ben O'Carroll who also stood out for St Brigids in the recent All-Ireland club final didn't play tonight was he injured?
