I know there are Woodward threads out there, but this is one key thing that should not happen, IMO. We judge managers by how they play, who they sign, and what they win. Why shouldn't we do the same for Woodward? If Mourinho is deemed incapable of taking the club forward as manager, then so shoul...

It's evident throughout the team hence the misplaced passes and people running out of sync. Defence; we have a massive issue in pairing two CBs. We can't keep them fit or they make howlers individually and lose their confidence. Attack; we have Lukaku, Rashford, Martial, Sanchez primarily as our...

Who's going to be available later on in the season? I mean it will be too late to recover anything valuable from the season anyways with the way we do things, but if it really gets desperate (see Chelsea 15/16) who can do a solid job? Hiddink to clear up another Mourinho mess? Big Sam (if we're i...

I'm a big fan of his and don't really like singling players out but for me tonight's game had two huge moments and he didn't deliver; the chance in the first half before half time and the chance saved by Lloris immediately after Kane's header. I think if he had scored either one of those we would...

I completely agree with every poster who says Jose hasn’t got the best out of the players at his disposal but Ed is more of a problem in my eyes, if he continues to think hes the best man to decide football matters then nothing is going to change whoever he brings in as manager. Jose hasnt got th...

Let us no be blind. This is a side that lacks creativity. We have lacked creativity for years. And we resolved this by bringing in big sturdy players first rather than clever, intelligent footballers who can pick out a pass. Ozil, and he is seen as poo, created more than double the chances Pogba...

How long can Phil Jones be thrust upon us. He’s been good but not for a while and he’s injured yet again. Perhaps he should gracefully retire.
RedCafe.net - Mon Aug 27 10:08 PM
Why can't he motivate them? I don't get it I am not a fan of Jose, but I accept he was the very best option at the time. I just can't understand why he can't motivate a really good group of players.
RedCafe.net - Mon Aug 27 10:03 PM
People harping on about lack of new signings and jumping Ed's throat make me laugh, especially after today's game. Tottenham who didn't sign anyone and finished below us last season are showing improvement and looking a far better team than they were last season yet here we are trying to excuse o...

Why, in any seemingly "difficult" situation we always back pass it to DDG ? It makes us predictable and very easy to pressurize, moreover the other team retrieves the ball after our keeper boots it upfield. It's a risky tactic that invites unnecessary pressure

What do we think of this? Seems to be quite prevalent at the moment with Benitez getting murdered by Redknapp and Souness post game for how he set up. Souness suggests he'd rather play football and lose 0-3 than defend and lose 1-2. Redknapp saying fans need value and entertainment. For me, as a...

In another thread it was mentioned that ADS is suited best in a 4231. I'm not sure that's ideal but am open to argument. Ideally I think you want four players in front of him (Real played a sort of 3-2-1-4) but I'm not sure how to replicate that in a modernish formation. So over to you lot.

Following on from the Cruyff thread and his under appreciation, i feel as though Platini is even more under rated in drafts. So how would you get the best out of him?

Thought this show deserved more than a couple of mentions in the TV thread. Funny, surprisingly dark and brutal at times. In short it's about a hitman doing a job in LA where he discovers that he wants to act and stop killing. Bill Hader kills it in this role that he wrote for himself along with...

The club has generously backed two managers, and allowed them complete freedom to govern football related matters. I think the problem we have here is that there are too many United fans who jumped on the fairytale bandwagon in the 90s and 2000s, and now simply cannot handle what is happening at...

Think he is going to be immense for us. Gives loads more composure to our backline than the previous flappers. Still can't get over how good he is on the ball. Never seen a goalkeeper I wished saw more of the ball than he does. Should be used as a libero with his passing ability.
