  1. Yeah Monaco have been raided so easily. Don't see the logic in them keeping Mbappe now tbh. His value is at its highest and he's lost his supporting cast. Can't seem him winning Monaco the league.... not without 3 of their best players. They'd be best off selling him whilst his price is high and trying to invest smartly. United and Liverpool have been really slow in the transfer market. If Liverpool somehow pull off VVD + Keita, it will be an excellent window but both look VERY unlikely despite them striking or hard tackling in training. attacking wise we look great, only lacking that star striker. however everywhere else is much of the same with no more investment in midfield (really need a ball winning midfielder with something about them) and our defence as always is incomplete in so many ways. GK, LB replacement and striker can wait til next season. I see us failing this season due to: incomplete defence, no leadership at the back, poor GK errors and lack of steel in midfield. United could ideally do with a player to balance out that midfield. Matic does seem like a really good fit in theory. Then they probably need this season to find out their best attacking lineup from lukaku, martial, rashford, mhiki, mata. Its hard to find a role for all of them as they're all so god damn different. If a martial swap deal with Mbappe was at all possible, I'd be tempted because he just seems to be the odd one out.
  2. Spot on. His goals: mins record is great, his quality is evident. If you just want to buy players based on stats then benni mccarthy would have been going for millions about 10 years ago.. but everyone in the football world is smarter than that.
  3. Pirates of the carribean 1 - 9/10 - just so so well done, loved everything except i felt the ending fight could have been a lot shorter. the big 3 were just pouring charisma throughout the entire film and very engaging. simple but nice plot, turned everything on its head. pirates setting out to sea to return treasure etc. jack sparrow is just so god damn lovable.
  4. ^^ Update, although OP isn't at Gintama levels of appreciation, ep 715-716 kinda solidified Oda is a master at storytelling even his smaller characters. The recent influx of new characters who I didn't really know about or like were my main qualm but his latest reveal of a relatively small time villain of why he's dressed like a baby has underlined just how good his storytelling is!
  5. Our league is one of the worst from the big leagues in regards to a quality of player perspective, especially at the top end. We also have the worst homegrown talent. We also have the best managers in the world and the most money. Really strange deal at the moment. I expect that the best managers will eventually translate to the best players but there is only so much you can do. I can't remember anyone with a brain saying or thinking english clubs are going to steam roll Europe since the days when there was a solid top 4. Chelsea = small squad, balancing europe and domestic for first time in ages Liverpool = ditto, + very intense playstyle so increased volume of games is trouble Spurs = ditto + big lack of experience from a manager + player perspective United = team in transition, lack of experience from the player side, no set playstyle City = the squad is a mess, they need to fix their fullback situation ASAP, sort out the defense and get maybe another experienced forward to cover for Aguero who will likely get injured and if Arsenal were in Europe, we already know what would happen.
  6. No, I'm just being honest. This isn't a dig at United. A team in transition is a team in transition and when you have players like Griezzeman in their prime being touted to join, they really need to think carefully about their next move in regards to getting trophies. Its for the same reason a player like Aubemeyang should stay clear of Liverpool. If I were Alexis Sanchez and I know I have 3-4 years left in my prime, I would NOT go to United despite the huge amounts of money on offer. I'd much rather wait out a Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus offer than entrust my career in a team who still doesn't have a specific play style or philosophy in place and has some very good players whom haven't completely found their feet. For a younger player like Luakaku, its a no-brainer in many respects considering the young profile of players at United. I feel like United's squad has a fuck load of quality but its quite mismatched and unbalanced. I'd much rather slide effortlessly into a Chelsea or City tbh. Over the past 3-5 years I think of a few very talented players which have failed at United whom I'm 99% sure would have excelled under Fergie (Di Maria, Depay, Zaha, Rafael, Jones, Shaw) . I'm not saying any of those players would have been world class under Fergie but I think they'd still be at United and playing an important role.
  7. Thanks^^ just making sure it wasn't me. I think I'm half way through season 2 and it just feels like they're doing the same crap over and over.
  8. He's excellent! Just not Ronaldo/Bale level. I think he'll struggle at Bayern.. its just so difficult there. He has the talent but its the opportunity which he needs. I think he would have struggled at United too. I think any top class player should wait a season or 2 before joining United just to see how Mourinho starts setting them up. I wouldn't want to risk prime years of my career at the hands of Mourinho & United in transition.
  9. have you guys watched s02? is it just me or is this season slow as fuck. reminds me of house of cards, i feel like very little is accomplished episode to episode. i think netflix really need to fix their pacing on a few shows. I get quality over pacing to a degree but these shows move SLOW AF. top class hows like the wire managed to keep things moving fairly fast whilst not sacrificing quality. I feel like this show in season 2 is struggling.
  10. I think they should end it next season. I actually forgot just how good season 1 + 2 were. You summed it up really well in that Season 1 + 2 set up everything and they've just been resting on the laurels from that. Theres just no tensions/suspense for me anymore. Hes pretty much untouchable as president and I don't give a fuck about his kinky relationship with this wife etc.
  11. I love this show but really think about dropping it a lot. Basically, its high quality in every single aspect but it has one huge flaw for me. Its slow as fuck. I look past a season where I've devoted say 20 hours to the show, and I think could have those 20 hours been spent more productively on other shows or films or a video game? I think the pacing has a lot to be desired and ever since season 2, I felt its been really really obvious.
  12. lukaku is a beast and young as fuck. would take him at liverpool all day long. only issue is his agent. however good point w/sanchez. sanchez is better.
  13. i hated this anime so much when i was younger. hated this coming of age bullshit.
  14. lol united fans. lukaku good signing tho.
  15. lol thats just a dumb dig at arsenal arsenal >> lyon despite arsenals awful season
