Quote from: snoopdog on Today at 08:35:38 AMWhere is the Midfield, every game they are being overrun.  McTominayis not good enough to be in the PL never mind at utd. Rashford is a sulk and shouldn't be in the team. He lazily walks around the pitch. Has no clue about positioning. The defence has no protection whatsoever. Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire where the only guys with any credit from last night. Onana couldn't be blamed for the goal. Wan Bisaka went missing at the crucial moment. Bruno is not a captain. Yest he creates but he gives the ball away more times than he creates. Istanbul summed him up a goal and then gave away 2 frees that they scored from. How long does it take for the club to get Ratcliffe in to start making changes. ETH picks the team and bought alot of these players, so while people say he needs time, time for what. If we saw a game plan or improvement ok maybe but he is as much to blame as the frauds he puts out on the pitch every game. Anfield will be another horror show and will prob see the end of ten hag as Munich will dump them out of Europe a few days beforehand. A bleak mid winter awaits but hardly unexpected.   

Good point.

And you  could see a similar score line to last season in the  Liverpool game , the way things are going

It's only  going to have one ending. Getting beat is one thing , getting  totally outplayed while  clearly  having no style of play game after  game  is another.

Liverpool West Ham and Villa around Xmas will  tell the tale I reckon

I was never convinced  about ETH, but at  this stage it's difficult to really  assess him with all  those useless  bollixes not even trying a leg. 

How is  that martial clown still there ffs? And I reckon rashford will be moved on  in summer.  Playing  well for a few games every couple of  years  when there's a contract to be  got or a World Cup up ahead  is getting  mighty tedious

But that's just today. Could be 3 others next week. So many to choose from.
Already Boys from the County Hell and Young Ned of the Hill could replace any of them.

Yup , already I'm  thinking of  Sunnyside of  the street, Waltzing Matilda, White city  and Lullaby of London . I could go on and on...

Tbh though, I'd  struggle here  if it was  the top 10 Pogues songs

Quote from: Jeepers Creepers on December 01, 2023, 02:53:32 PMIn fairness Onana has been playing well up until mid week so will be interesting to see what ETH does next. Tough game away to Newcastle who even with a threadbare squad are playing well.

He fooked up by letting de gea go. We would be out of that European group had de gea been in goal.

United are out  of that group .  They  simply aren't good enough , with Onana or with  de gea
Ah , Billy Connolly's Lotto advert

The "meeting" bit cracks me up
1. Fairytale of New York
2. Misty Morning, Albert Bridge
3. Rainy Night in Soho

To be  honest, there are a dozen  or more  I could  have  included in  there. So many great tunes

Since learning of Shane MacGowan's death , I've struggled to pin down  my three favourite Pogues songs.

Been thinking of  a thread like this for a while , where you list your  three favourite songs by a band/singer , then  the absolute best of those three.

Then after a few days/a week or so , someone can select another band, and  we go again.

So , let's start with The Pogues. List your three favourite songs of theirs, then  highlight  your  absolute favourite .

Seen a photo of him recently and he didn't  look great.  Very sad news.

I think people liked him not only because of his music , but he spoke his  mind.  Typical example  here, at 53:50

He was a very  intelligent, an intellectual, a poet and  a musical genius I would say. I absolutely love the  Pogues music.  So many brilliant songs

RIP Shane. You have left  one hell of a legacy.

Quote from: From the Bunker on November 29, 2023, 09:19:18 PMThe gas thing is they can still get out of the group. They will be play a Bayern side at home who have nothing to play for but the Win bonus.

Could Utd be the first to win only two games and get out of the group with 7 points?

Juventus got out with  5 draws and a late win v United , in 98 I think it was.  Got to the final too.

Quote from: Armagh18 on November 29, 2023, 08:02:32 PMOnana had few good games there but back to his flaky self tonight. Europa league would be some hindrance to the league with the amount of injuries but should be aiming to win kt

United are well out of the CL , and the Europa.

They don't have a good enough squad (or  team), to cope with  it.  Get the injured players sorted , and a game a week will give ETH the  breathing space to try and get  things right, and get some sort of playing  system  in place

No point flogging a  poor squad with a lot of injuries,  through 3  competitions come new year. That will only lead  to one ending - ETH being sacked

Dunno if this has been mentioned yet, surprised if it hasn't.
How many times can you bounce the ball back then?

As far as I know, you  can bounce/dribble the ball basketball -style as much as you want , as long as you don't catch it in your hands .

Oh! I didn't know that.

You're clearly  still annoyed about 1994, aren't you?  ;)
