  1. Willian

    he is so bad that i am close to questioning his professionalism/integrity.
  2. Random Rumours

    I wonder if those who were ridiculing the suggestion of Raheem Sterling as a target in the summer are willing to digest some humble pie yet?
  3. Following Our Nearest & Dearest Rivals, 2017/2018

    I don't get the joy and positivity in both Newcastle fans and the media about this possible takeover. They're going to go from an owner whose stance is "i'm not putting any money in but whatever the club generates can be spent" to a venture capitalist whose M.O is to profit from assets that she purchases. Some fans and media are talking like they're getting Sheikh Mansour, in reality they're more like getting a Stan Kroenke.
  4. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Some of you need to take off the rose tinted glasses when it comes to Conte, or perhaps more apt is take off the "i hate the board" tinted glasses. I posted a good while ago that he will be off at the end of the season no matter what, his contract "renewal" told us that if you ask me. He is not committed. Yes he is good at talking as if he plans long-term but actions speak louder. Secondly, and again, this is not because of results, I stated my annoyance with his whinging before the season even started and especially in the closing weeks of the transfer window. No-one cares about injuries, nobody is interested in excuses. Everybody knows who is and isn't injured so get on with doing your job as HEAD COACH and coach the players available to you to the best of your ability. It would not surprise me if the players have gotten wind of the fact he has no intentions to be around beyond this season anyway and that is somewhat behind the drop in levels and sporadic showing of petulance towards him. Some of you are crying out for loyalty to a man who i'm afraid, no different to most other modern coaches, is showing loyalty to nobody but himself. I respect and admire the man as a coach but i'm not gullible enough to think he is flawless or that he is doing anything other than passing through.
  5. Willian

    Awful again today, made zero effort, spotted him lounging around the pitch several times. He's beginning to enter Malouda territory. Right now, don't want him anywhere near the pitch.
  6. Willian

    Cahill and Azpi are simply soldiers. Neither were brought to the club by Mourinho and you'd struggle to find a more professional player than either.
  7. Willian

    He is the sole surviving "Mourinho soldier". To me, it's clear his head was turned by United's interest in the summer and it hasn't yet returned. I don't feel like he can be relied upon this season like he has been in the past.
  8. Jose Mourinho thread

    His "let the horses run free" schtik lasted all of 3 games. In his last title win with us he at least managed to survive a few months before resorting to a one goal lead resulting in shutting up shop. It tells me that Guardiola's City and possibly us have him running scared. He so desperately needs this title, not for United but for himself. He is a fragile man these days.
  9. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    my theory on Conte is that he had offers and was tempted in the summer to make a swift return to Italy with Milan. The renewed contract on improved terms without any extension was a sweetener to keep him for this season and he will leave in the summer.
  10. Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    I think if this deal is wrapped up quickly after seemingly being of no urgency to anybody as the window closed then it must be a strong possibility that it suited all parties to let the window close without it being resolved. 1. Diego wasn't interested in going anywhere on loan for 5/6 months 2. Atletico, who can't use him until January, get to delay the amortisation by a year in bookkeeping terms, a year where they expect a €100m income for Griezmann. 3. Our books were already well balanced for this year. The transfer not going through until January 2018 gives us a nice early credit of €50m or so heading into the 2018 summer market, similar to the way the Oscar deal did in 2017.
  11. We officially have an incompetent board

    Hazard and Pedro capable, arguably more capable than Bats, at playing up front. And January is never far away.
  12. Riyad Mahrez

    Hope he stays now. One because I love watching him regularly and two because i'd love to sign him next summer.
  13. We officially have an incompetent board

    No, you didn't get the memo, WE ARE A SHAMBLES!! What will we do if we get 7 injuries or suspensions at the same time???? Yes the likelihood of that happening is about 0.05% but we should have spent another £100m in transfers and tied ourselves to another £20m a year in wages to insure ourselves in case it happened! DAMN IT WE'RE DOOMED!!! ARSENAL IN BLUE THAT'S WHAT WE ARE NOW!!! AAAARRRRGGGHHHHHHH!!!
  14. We officially have an incompetent board

    Batshuayi is not up to starting for us but to call him pathetic in this league is harsh. He would score 15+ league goals starting for any side from Everton and below. Llorente was a blow I agree. I don't expect Bats to start in big games if Morata is unavailable. I am sure Costa will choose to move other pieces around, move Cesc forward and have Pedro or Hazard as the front man for example. If Morata is unavailable for Stoke at home then those are the only type of games i'd expect to see Bats start.
  15. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    What's wrong with having a neutral net spend? Why do you and others have some misguided conception that owning a football club means you are obliged to constantly spend money? I think it's amazing that Roman pumped his own money in to build the club to the global force and brand that it is today and has turned us into a club that can sustain itself and remain competitive for trophies on a consistent basis. Go and ask a Blackburn fan about how a football club looks that competes artificially on the back money being pumped in by a benefactor. It's not a pretty picture if that benefactor suddenly pulls the plug/dies/runs out of money. Roman has built the club to the extent that it is no longer dependant on his money. This is a great thing to be celebrated, not complained about.
