The moral of the story then is to make sure you are the FIRST...

Re: The 2019-2020 Football Thread

Ed Woodward is some kind of "genius".... in one stroke, he has managed to make the £75m Liverpool paid for Virgil van Dijk look like a bargain......

Re: The 2019-2020 Football Thread

Re: The 2019-2020 Football Thread

Good to finally get AWB 'over the line'... as usual, it took Edward twice as long to get a deal done as any other (competent) CEO.... nothing will improve until the Gimps and Woodward are gone; that...

Re: The 2019-2020 Football Thread

Feel desperately sorry for Weeze and the rest of the Geordie faithful. They have been screwed over time after time after time by Ashley, who puts his own financial self-interests ahead of the club's...

Re: What are you listening to right now?

"Western Stars"....Bruce Springsteen- unbelievable. This literally might be the greatest album of his career, which is one helluva statement, but it is THAT good....

Re: The 2019-2020 Football Thread

I despair. I give up. How did this f-in tube ever get to be our CEO.... no, don't answer that, I already know.

It's the ultimate insult to businessmen & women around the world to have the Glazers...

Re: Movie Reviews

"Stan & Ollie".... absolutely wonderful.

Re: The 2019-2020 Football Thread

Don’t want to play for our club? Don’t let the door hit your arse on the way out then.

It was ever thus, and shall ever be: no matter what state the club is in, it is always bigger than any...

Re: The 2019-2020 Football Thread

United are "run" by businessmen and bankers, not football people.

Our owners & CEO look for "value in the market" from a purely financial/commercial perspective. In their eyes, they'd already...

Re: The 2019-2020 Football Thread

There’s more chance of me playing CB for United this season than there is de Ligt....

Not a chance is he coming to a club with no Champions League football on offer- that would be a step down from...

Re: The 2019-2020 Football Thread

Danny James may be 'buy to develop', but if they don't back Ole for the rest of this window, just who exactly will be developing James, since they'll probably sack Ole after we bomb our way through...

Re: The 2019-2020 Football Thread

Frig, I leave again for a few weeks, and come back to find you all STILL talking about United... we haven't been relevant for at least 2 years now.

Absolutely fine with the fixture list. If our...

Re: The 2018-2019 Football Thread

Not quite a 'bite'...more like a nibble! I've been around you long enough to recognise a 'set up'... ;)

As to the article, I've written a comprehensive review of Don Revie's entire career since I...

You're sounding more and more like a 1980s Scouser with every post Mike.... and that's NOT a recommended path in life. :sneaky:

Re: The 2018-2019 Football Thread

Yawn.... the other lot down the opposite end of the East Lancs Road could be known as "29 Years....and Counting" F.C.

Re: The 2018-2019 Football Thread

Scamp, don't ever say I don't look out for you....!! ;)
