  1. Forest are up, baby! While I preferred Forest to come up, I still feel very sorry for Huddersfield. The refs really fucked them.
  2. Oof. Forest are on the ropes. Huddersfield should have had a second penalty. Moss and Tierney having a proper 'mare.
  3. Colback was very fortunate there. Shocking that VAR did not overturn that call. Should have been a penalty to Huddersfield imo.
  4. Rangnick's appointment being a farce became obvious the moment he took the Austria NT job. Such a waste of time and clear that United's board had no fucking clue what they wanted to do. It's starting to look like United just replaced one set of clowns with another.
  5. Rangnick's appointment has been nothing short of an unmitigated disaster. We threw away an entire season for nothing. This club remains a fucking joke. And
  6. De Jong likes to drop deep to transition play - that's not the same as being a DM and he would be a Pogba replacement if we do sign him. As I said, he's much more similar in style to a player like Thiago. He works best when paired alongside a more defensive minded midfield partner - Schöne at Ajax, De Roon/Koopmeiners for the Netherlands, Busquets at Barca.
  7. Spanish teams are far and away the most dominant in European competition. It's not even close.
  8. Not bad for a guy who spent most of his time playing golf.
  9. As per Solyent's request: Firmino is fucking shite. He shoots like someone passing a football to their toddler.
  10. Real Madrid have saved football! There's no arguing that they rode their luck in the knockout stages but to beat PSG, Chelsea, City and Liverpool is no mean feat and it makes them deserved winners.
  11. He does. De Jong is not a DM. He can play there in a pinch but then you aren't getting the best out of him. He's always done his best work when played alongside a defensive #6 - he's much more similar to a player like Thiago than Busquets.
  12. Timber is a CB. Eta. The two of them never played together in Ajax's first team and I don't think they played together in the youth teams either since De Jong is 5 years older. I'd be more sceptical about De Jong. He's a good player but according to all reports he really doesn't want to leave Barca but might need to be sold as Barca are in need of liquidity. I don't want us to end up with a player on fat wages who doesn't want to be here - we already have a massive problem when it comes to players attitude and commitment.
  13. I'd expect Roma to win. For all of Mourinho's faults, he knows how to win a final.
  14. Reports that Burnley are in talks with Vincent Kompany to take over as manager.
  15. The truth. It's already done. Villa officially confirmed the signing yesterday. Reports are that they are going to attempt to sign Bissouma as well.
  16. Milan wrap up the Scudetto. Very comfortable game for Milan. Pioli has done a fantastic job.
  17. That was nail-biting. Great finish to the season at the top and bottom. We owe Brighton big time for gifting us a EL place. Our season ends in thorough embarrassment with yet another piss poor showing from a spineless team with a clueless fraud as manager. We didn't deserve to finish 6th. Worst United side in my lifetime in terms of attitude and commitment. Good riddance to Burnley.
  18. Solskjaer>Rangnick Only Man United could sack Solskjaer and somehow hire an even worse manager. Rangnick is the biggest fraud in football.
  19. PSG have confirmed that Mbappe has extended to 2025. But wait....the saga is not over. LaLiga has announced that they intend to file a complaint against PSG with UEFA, French administrative and tax authorities as well as the relevant bodies of the EU. In their statement they say that they find it to be scandalous that PSG, which last season lost more than €220m after having accumulated losses of €700m in recent seasons (even declaring income from sponsorships of a very dubious amount) and with a wage bill of €650m for this season, can still be allowed to reach an agreement of this financial magnitude. Goes on to criticise the behaviour of Nasser Al-Khelaifi and says that he does not respect nor want to respect the economic rules and represents as great a threat to European football as the Super League.
  20. Lyon have once again shown that they are the gold standard when it comes to women's football in Europe.
  21. Turning out to be pretty one sided with Lyon running away with it. 3-0 up already.
  22. Yep. There's also reports that PSG are in negotiations with Zidane. Leonardo could be out the door as well with reports claiming that Luis Campos is the favourite replace him as sporting director.
