I'm on an Android phone, viewing redcafe and every ten minutes I'm being redirected to fake prize website. You know the ones that include a "congratulations" voiceover?

Apart from England it seems that we suffer the most from the disease of formationitis and player position fungus. Most teams have a style. A formation. A philosophy. Man City being the prime example. Us? We are confused. Too many questions. What's our preferred formation? Where does Pogba play? W...

Following on from the Greatest Midfields thread, I'm curious to know who the Caf believe to be the best B2B midfielders of all-time. The definition of B2B is being competent in defense, neutral or attack. By this criteria alone, many players fall short. I am going to hazard a guess that on a Unit...

First of all i know this probably would never happen, but just after a deal involving 2 of England's biggest clubs and 2 great players (Sanchez and Mkhitaryan) in a straight swap deal, if Chelsea proposed a similar deal in the summer for a straight swap Morata for Lukaku would you take it? Would...

It may be a slightly clickbaity title but I made the point to a mate at the pub this evening when discussing Kane.

Arguably our weakest positions in the squad are RB and FB, plus there are very high chances Darmian & Blind won't be here next season. We have Shaw, Young and Valencia who will probably stay. The latter two are quite old and will decline even further next season. So what are realistic targets we...

Reading through the caf, I get the impression that there's a bit of confusion about these roles in teams and this influences how people tend to analyse who we should be buying and which formations we should be playing at times. I thought it would be helpful to discuss this. So here's my take: Bas...

Might as well make this a thread. I've already posted my thoughts in Arse Fam TV thread. Pogue Mahone said: ↑ Logic dictates that an Arsenal win would be best for us.

I want to buy Malaga vs Sevilla tickets. Does anyone know if you have to be a member to buy through their website? Also, is it best to sit in the south or north stand. Would prefer not to be with or near the Sevilla fans.

Some players stick to one club for their whole career but others move around constantly. I can think of one guy that seemed to play for everyone at some point. He played a friendly game for us against Australia. 1966–1972 Huddersfield Town 171 (41) 1972–1977 Leicester City 210 (72) 1977–1979 Who...

The rumors of De Gea possibly moving to Madrid in the summer are getting stronger by the day and maybe just maybe if De Gea decides to move to Madrid, I would think we should try to negotiate Kovacic and Isco in the deal. That would strengthen our midfield and we could try and get in Butland or e...
