Everyone remembers great goals, but what's the best assist you can remember? An amazing defence-splitting pass? Pinpoint cross? Bit of skill? This one was first to come to mind for me.
RedCafe.net - Mon Oct 30 6:30 PM
The thread title speaks for itself really. Not necessarily a skill, could be a physical or mental ability. So I will go first. Valencia's crossing - Valencia consistently gets into good positions down the right. If he could cross the ball then he'd be a very great threat for us. Blind's pace - We...

This guy has not been playing at his level this season so far to my understanding. I desperately wanted us to sign him last Summer. As it stands you'd think he's not an £80m player but maybe his performances are suffering because he missed a chance to move to anoher club. I've read that Diego Sim...

A lot has been said about the areas needing additions - winger and fullback being the center of attention. However, it's the creative mid which I think stinks if not more than at least equally as bad as the rest. I though we had enough players there. Number-wise it seems so. With time, the shaky...

As per the title, if Cristiano Ronaldo had absolutely zero interest in moving to Spain and was 100% commited to us, how would we have fared post his exit. Obviously we'd have been a great side for many more years, but how much better, do we think? More PL titles, many more CL trophies etc?

If Jose believes Martial, Rashford, Lukaku and a 10 is not balanced enough for his liking, we could always go 5-2-3. The issue with that though is that one of Martial or Rashford have to be on the right hand side, and in terms of build up play through central area's it isn't ideal as it would rel...
