Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

I think it would be a real statement if one of the countries highest paid footballers donated a chunk to a small club to see them through a few months. I know they don't have to at all, and am not expecting it. Could be a real game changer if they did though. Hasn't someone done exactly that recent...

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

Yep, oddly* I felt they were less dominant in matches last season than they were in 18/19. But then they didn't need to be last year, as Citeh were so far off the pace for whatever reason. Klopp seems to be the master of the Milton Berle tactic of doing just enough Trust you to find a way to post a...

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

Don’t think that’s too off the mark They relied on a “strikers challenge” in the penalty box to win the first one and then won the second on two moments of madness from Christensen and Kepa Certainly don’t look as sharp as last season so far But they're still winning Obviously The point I’m making ...

Re: The generic transfer thread

In the last five years the Glazers have paid themselves £90M in dividends We've also paid out over a billion in interest on a £540M loan :twisted: Assuming your 5 years timescale applies to the interest as well, that equates to c20% interest :shock: :shock: :shock: Are you sure that doesn’t include...

Old Man Andrews

How was that Arsenal goal not offside ?

Because Aubameyang wasn't offside. HTH.

Re: The a result of the Day Thread

He was flat on his back, arms outstretched on the edge of the 6yd box. I though the protocol in those circumstances was to stop the game for a suspected head injury. I think, if you read it again, you’ll see that I wasn’t suggesting he wasn’t hurt but that it’s getting increasingly difficult to tel...

Re: The a result of the Day Thread

Brilliant for Harrogate, a well deserved win - did you see the 4th goal, absolute comedy defending from Southend.. They must have heard a whistle from somewhere. The defender just stopped with the ball at his feet on the edge of the 6yd box and the keeper made no attempt to stop the shot which was ...

Re: Weekend Football

Leeds played well, but I'm always unconvinced by the "if we play that way, we'll be ok"
Teams that do that have just played as well as they can and lost

How often does that happen ?

And this is a generic statement rather than directed specifically at Leeds

Norfolk Royal Tricky one that. I'd probably take the A 505 and then M1 or A 428 towards Bedford and swing a left.

Re: SpuROFLs

Who is going to spend that sort of money at the moment though? Think he is stuck there, at least for this season. I think the longer Pochettino is out of work the more these Spurs players will sulk, they want him back. There was a clear connection a friendship between coach and players and they alm...

Re: Reading players out of contract in summer 2020

How much we set to lose on McNulty do we think? You think we need to pay them to take him? He's not Aluko ffs. Nah. Just his initial fee was like 1.5 million right? No way we recoup that. Doesn't matter - we've already accounted for his fee so we're not 'adding' to the losses even if we give him a ...

Re: The generic transfer thread

Lukaku on loan at West Brom was another who totally run us ragged. I've never understood the amount of flack he gets, he's a top, top striker. Seemed like an easy target for United supporters during their really bad recent seasons. However, his record is punctuated with getting the third and fourth...

Hound Wycombe apparently


Interesting - Wycombe seem to be scouring the Scottish market for players - could be an interesting and cheap way to improve their squad.

Might give us a bit of an insight into how Scottish teams would fare if they come south.

Re: New FFP rules

No, you can't use owner investment to bypass FFP Disagree with that part of FFP. There should be a way for owners to invest as much as they want so long as conditions are applied to the “investments” to stop owners, for example, funding through mortgages and loans and not taking responsibility if t...
