Gonna be a good offseason - looking forward to the draft, the trades and especially free agency. Lot of teams who werent strong at the beginning of last season ending up finishing the season strong and also vice versa. Hope we get some unpredictability again this time around. And as usual hope th...

When you have billions for fullbacks and backup fullbacks, why not spend a little more to help them feel better when they read about their team on the internet? Can the press be bought? You be the judge Actual screen grabs from actual "sports news" websites. "Physical play from lesser opponents"...

I’ve grown to become a lot more resistant to things in football not going the way I want. Rarely would I consider posting a new thread in the football forum, but here’s goes. There is a lot of talk about us now being so top heavy that we’re a clusterfeck - which holds merit but really doesn’t con...

Just thinking back this morning that these were some of the moments that stand out as having given me the most euphoric feeling at the end of the game in recent times. All forward players, all teenagers, and with the exception of Ronaldo - all scored at least one, and in spectacular style. Rank t...

Title pretty self explanitory. After ready The Mixer by Michael Cox (cracking read by the way, highly recommend), I personally feel that while some players from bygone eras might still shine today, the average and actual level was so much lower. In my opinion, the average footballer was nowhere n...

Following the loss against Newcastle, I started thinking about City, last season and the progress they've made. Quick stat: Last season, City had 17 wins, 5 losses and 5 draws after 27 games. This season, we have the same. 56 points with a better GD. The results/performances feel quite the same,...

This thread has been done before, I think, but I keep coming back to this and thinking that what happened with the team that Sir Alex Ferguson was building prior to his departure was a real shame. Something that's come up recently on here is how new players seem to inevitably struggle, but what w...

For whatever reason our team is struggling with 4231 and looks better in 433. Lots of people want to see us adopt 433. In that formation our midfield would consist of Pogba-Matic-Someone. Who should that someone be? Fellaini is injured, Herrera seems off form, but maybe he could be played into fo...

Seeing that Rio, Vidic and Evra thread makes me realize that we had some superb players(I know they were superb at the time, but their legacy grows every year considering the players that have 'replaced' them) that were United through and through, and led by the great man himself. From that perio...

Been doing a fair bit of aimless Youtubing recently, and have found myself going through clips of De Niro et al. Fascinating to watch actors get so into character that there can be basically nothing left of them that carries over between characters (Daniel Day-Lewis), or to see them visibly takin...

who's going down? any 3 from 10 at the moment 3 weeks ago most people thought Swansea were doomed but surely West Brom are, 7 points even with the game in hand against Chelsea just looks too much to overcome. Hopefully there will be 5 or 6 in the mix on the last weekend of the season Think I'll g...

Matt Law reported that Alderweireld's future in doubt as he was left out of North London Derby and also for first tie against Juventus.

Nothing to do with yesterday's game; more just a general point I've been thinking about for a while. Are these three underrated in terms of their standing in the game? I've not been around here for a while, but I'm just wondering I suppose where exactly people would rank these players in an all-t...

Basically former players who are now overrated based on being on highlight reals. Jay-Jay Okocha. 90 rated prime icon on FIFA somehow - implying he was one of the best players in the world at one point. I don't ever remember this being the case - he was a very decent player, great entertaining bu...

For the purpose of this thread an era is defined as a particular set of players playing together for a good amount of time. Following will make it clear: Busby's pre-munich era - our Busby Babes team Holy Trinity era - The European Cup winning team Robson's era - The 80s unit Early PL era - Canto...

I see more of the later in United forum recently. "I'm tired if " "Sick of " "Would you rather take x position now" "Stop with excuses" Et Al. If there is a point to be made, make it. Slow build up, lack of vision, lazy playing, incorrect tactics whatever. If you' lost faith in a player or Manage...

Lots of Chilean fans observing the 20th anniversary of one of the most beautiful assists and goals in the history of our football. Probably the sexiest goal ever scored at Wembley by a National Team. Oh boy, how great he was.

Following today's result I've come to the conclusion that a big defensive overhaul is required in the summer. We have spent poorly on defensive options since the retirement of SAF and it's painfully obvious we aren't going to win trophies with the current defensive setup. I know we have a good de...

Some call him old fashioned, some say he is finished and for sure I can't deny he made some awful decisions specially when we are chasing results, but saying he is finished or his football is old is a bit daft tbf. Opinions?

Draft is April 26-28. Thread will then fold into the 2018/19 season thread.

Any mock draft compiled at this point will be inherently flawed, as underclassmen h...

every other team gets the most out of their players. Every single player we have signed has looked poor. For years now. We are so much better than this.
RedCafe.net - Sun Feb 11 5:10 PM
Why do we always seem to be buying the wrong players? Now I’m not saying signing Sanchez was wrong as he’s world class but why didn’t we address the need for another midfielder either in the summer or January? Why did we neglect right wing where we have absolutely fecking no one? It was blatantly...

Productive over the course of the season but very inconsistent within it. Equally likely to produce a sublime touch as he is to produce an unbelievably clumsy one. Creates and finishes lots of chances but breaks up the build-up play over and over again in doing so. Capable of playing in any attac...

both of them gave Readings wide players too much space cross after cross coming into the box, especially second half Im glad that Gaz and Evra are first choice tbh as much as i love Heinze i believe that he has lost something

This may seem like a reactionary thread to today’s game but our current build up style is so boring and part of the reason that we don’t kill games. Bar the first month of the season the build up play has been so slow. We use to be the entertainers of the league but now watching us is becoming a...

We will always come up short in these games against the have a go hero teams because we dont have anyone to give the players a bollocking. Keane would have destroyed Smalling for that dive the resultant goal.
RedCafe.net - Sun Feb 11 4:29 PM
This is not preseason, and putting Alexis Sanchez straight into the team has thrown the balance of the team off. Sanchez has shown quality, and is playing well, but something is not working between him and midfield. JM is doing a terrible job at integrating him, it seems almost forcing him into t...

Now before anyone has a go, I am usually optimistic when it comes to Jose and Utd but something that rears its head every single matchday needs to be addressed. Why does Jose persist with: A winger at left back Pogba deep in a midfield two Martial shifted out to the right How difficult is it to s...

We haven't heard the injuries excuse lately as it's been all about "luck" right now but can that please stop? We have a few chances right on our plate and couldn't put them away today. The referee has been extremely favorable towards us all game as well. There is no bad luck here. Just terrible t...
RedCafe.net - Sun Feb 11 4:27 PM
Think today was pretty obvious when it comes to our attacking football when you look at City. The full backs just don't stretch the pitch enough or get in behind. The idea of them pushing on should help free space elsewhere - it just isn't happening enough. Whether that's the coach, or the fact w...

Almost everyone thinks it's obscene and bizarre, but few seem angry about it. The greed of these players, and the people they hire to advocate on their behalf, has a direct impact on the game and our experience of it. If everyone in the elite leagues took a 10% pay cut, the amount of money availa...

So, could Hitler have done the same? There are theories that the charred body found by the Russians was a l...
