Football: The Giggs up!

I mean, it's a *very* mild joke.

McTominay is no Pirlo but he's not a 5 yard backward and sideways merchant like, say, Winks. He's a pretty decent passer and carrier of the ball.

Yeah, but better passers like Toni Kroos get those label too on twitter for reasons.

On McTominay himself, he is a useful player for United, who is doing the workhorse job there. Underappreciated, possibly, but that's part of the role. Essien, was basically the most important player for Madrid's first galacticos, but he was underappreciated and undervalued there and thus left for Chelsky. I am not saying McTominay is as good as Essien was, just that those roles often get a bit overlooked.

I don't think he has much quality on the ball, but to give him his due he's positive, not scared of trying things, and he works hard.

Makelele, not Essien.

I'd take McTominay every day over Fred. But as I said before, it's a very mild joke, and the inability to take something so mild is a little odd.

Not to me :)

But I'll remember that McTominay & Fred is a touchy subject for you.

It's not a touchy subject for me. It was a stupid and unfunny twitter troll post.

The McFred thing is annoying less because of what's aimed at them but it's because it's a go-to of anyone-but-Ole types on twitter who refuse to acknowledge that even if they do want him gone he does in fact do good things and bringing the best out of the pair of them is one of them.

That's the game. City in the final. Chelsea favourites to join them but I suppose you can never really rule out Real Madrid given their record in the CL.

Yeah, City-Chelsea would be the CL final for football nerds. Tuchel and Guardiola have the same idea about football. So that's gonna be one of those games, where they try to outwit each other with formations and tactics.

Tuchel would be lucky to lace Guardiola's shoes.

 

Which isn't to say that he can't win the final but there's a gulf there.

The twitter account in question has repeatedly said Ole is the best manager y'all have had since Ferguson :dunno: - don't think he's an 'anyone but ole' type at all.

At least Jim Beglin apologized, but how do people think these are acceptable things to say

I mean fair enough and obviously I wasn't as irritated by it as Consigliere but I don't necessarily check the provenance of a poster before I think 'ugh not this nonsense again'.

Funny how someone like Ben Thatcher was never deemed guilty of having a whiteboy temperament.
