Manchester United thread


#823

Personally, I’d arrest everyone with a ticket, too.


#824

Fellaini, Rojo, Smalling, Jones, Mata and Ibra. All unavailable for our game.


#825

Bit late, but that thing about fans being arrested if in certain areas of Brussels without a ticket on matchday applied to when we played Anderlecht last year as well

Getting a ticket for Anderlecht is next to impossible anyway, but certainly was an added incentive to not bother with that one!


#826

We’re doomed. Some 18 year old unknown is going to play and smash us.


#827

Yeah we’re destined to get beat by a standard Mourinho parked bus filled up with a bunch of youth players playing out of their skin to make an impression.


#828

Longest unbeaten run in Europe? And yet they look so crap.


#829

They are very well organised defensively though.


#830

You can see their not far away and a transfer window should get them there.


#831

Well, not a news for a Mourinho’s side :expressionless:


#832

They will win the Europa League and the League cup this season, so in the demise after Fergie they have still managed to win the FA cup, League Cup and Europa League. Yes I understand they aren’t the top trophies but some Arsenal fans say we wont want to turn out like United post Fergie in regards to Wenger leaving LOL.


#833

Tbf if we kept Wenger we’d be winning equally as much as them, just without the biggest transfer bill in world football. Surely the argument would go from winning Premier League titles to not winning top trophies and from winning the FA cup to ???.


#834

Yeah I admit United have been failing but I hate the stupid comparisons comparing Wenger to Fergie, in his last 8 seasons at United Fergie won the league 5 times + the CL. Wenger has only got an 80+ tally in the league once in the last 12 years.


#835

You would complain if we only won these trophies :hipster:


#836

No complaints from me next year if we win the Europa League, we aren’t in any position to turn down any European trophy given our history.


#837

Well, the main point of the argument is that they were both long term managers who left behind more than just a contract worth of work. It was also expected that ManUtd wouldn’t fall out of the Champions League for such a long time for which even this season despite spending huge amounts of money and hiring one of the best managers in the world they would have to take a detour to qualify. No matter if you don’t like the comparison it’s at least something that has to be kept in mind when talking about the post Wenger time.


#838

I don’t think a new manager will be able to take us much lower than Wenger already has, he’s now got us down to 6th place and who knows how much further he will drag us down in the next 2 years.


#839

#840

Looks like Pogba’s been had. :grinning:


#841

I still don’t see that he’s a 100M player. Just me?
