I think Pep and City's dominance will only be good for the league in terms of raising the standard of football and forcing the chasing teams to match the quality they've set this season. They've just won 15 matches on the bounce and will probably go the season unbeaten. I think this is really sim...

Almost certain to leave Shalke on a free this summer, Barcelona have decided to pass on him and Us, Arsenal and of course Bayern are linked with interest, he can play as a #6 or #8 and has even operated as a #10 and he's physically certainly cut out for the PL.

How do you feel about this?. It seems a bit strange that a referee can give a booking for a challenge that should be red, but nothing can be done after the game. Recently Ashley Young has been banned for the incident not being seen by the ref, it wasn't brought up in the match report. The only re...

Happy new year to all on the caf, especially to our hundreds of new Man City fan members. Despite a lot of negativity and doom there is much to be played for in 2018. So how do you see the big issues playing out, who will turn over a new leaf and who will continue on this year as they...

I have no doubt that the clash of heads last night was accidental. However, it was clear that Hoedt was late with his challenge, in that he head butted the back of Lukaku's skull, with the United man first to the ball. If the same scenario has occurred on the ground, with Hoedt clattering Lukaku'...
RedCafe.net - Sun Dec 31 2:46 PM
Why are players in lower placed teams allowed to get away with bad challenges? Especially on top players like De Bruyne, Hazard etc. For a league that is driven by money, there seems to be no indication that they’d give some protection to the top players that are basically the face of this league...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/football/41765374 Manchester United’s Ashley Young has been charged with violent conduct. It follows an incident during yesterday's game against Southampton which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video. He has until 17:00 to respond.
RedCafe.net - Sun Dec 31 12:19 PM
The players reach a point where they visibly stop putting in the appropriate level of effort, results go south and the clamour for change of management becomes irresistible. Yesterday’s game against Southampton was painful to watch – no urgency to press and regain the ball and no concerted pressu...

I'm almost never in this forum but this question is being raised on more and more non-United forums.

Since Fergie left Vidic Rio Evra Scholes Giggs Then you had Carrick, Rooney and RVP who were past it. All three of them in their prime were amazing for us.

One thing that always struck me about Fergie was not only did he continuously freshen up the team, he also freshed up his back room staff. Coaches came and went under Fergie. New ideas, fresh training methods, all contributing to the success during his era. What about Jose and his back room staff...

I read lot of comments( not just here) that united must beat weaker teams regardless of refs mistakes and i think that is not how things should stand.

I'll start with 1.

We have players who don’t give a shit. Zero pride. None existing winning mentality. That’s the worst part. When I see red shirts with smiling faces when it’s 0-0 and five minutes to go at OT then my blood is boiling. How is it possible?

Kane's stats made me wonder why Drogba's stats are slightly underwhelming. I mean, Drogba was a very good striker yet he only scored 20+ goals in 2 PL seasons.

It's not easy to admit that City are amazing. It's worse when you have to post the link to their YouTube channel and show other United fans that our club is shite, while our rivals (both City and Liverpool) have a really decent way of understanding the Internet.
