    The Man Utd Thread

    Okay, in roughly the format that everyone else is doing:

    Oh I see you've already started playing this game. @JPL why not just form another club entirely @teddymeow Seem TFM play lately? He really doesn't look like making the grade as a top-level footballer. He's barely played for Fulham this season and look where they are, surely if he had kicked on at all they'd be using him. I think I'd like us to get Tuanzebe back though - I remember his performance in midfield for us against Arsenal fondly, and he seems to be doing well at Villa. I'd rather have him on the bench than Jones, put it that way.

    Yeah I'm not saying it is either, just saying giving him the job permenantly was another example of the lack of long-term thinking by the people running the club. It may have actually undermined Ole, in a wierd way. Thing is, if we have a big clearout, do we trust the current management of the club to carry that out? The long term aim seems to be to implement a more modern structure where there is a sporting director, but in the meantime there seems to be no vision at the very top of the club, so it could just go deeply wrong again. I think the situation is this: Definitely going - Rojo, Herrera (unfortunately), Mata, Valencia, Darmian Might be going - Sanchez (probably depends on whether he wants to earn money sitting on the bench or play - I think his pride will make him want to seek greener pastures), Pogba (for all his abilities, he seems like a uneeded luxury for a team in our position) Should be going but probably won't - Young, Jones That's a lot of players leaving. For the sake of squad cohesion, and also being able to say no to clubs who ask for crazy transfer fees, we really probably don't want to bring in more than 3-4 players over the summer. So in the short term, we can probably only fix the obvious problems in the squad - right back, right sided attacker, and a central midfielder. Hopefully it would be a leaner, more balanced squad. Maybe Solsjkaer is the right guy to oversee that? I do wonder if Mourinho is watching this and feeling somewhat vindicated. Getting 81 points with pretty much this squad seems like quite an achievement in retrospect. Although he kind of fucked himself by signing Sanchez though.

    I don't think I've ever watched us get beaten in as humilitating a fashion as that. 4-0 flatters us. Ole's results initially were good enough that they pretty much had to give him the job permanently. But this single performance, particularly in the context of our recent results, puts his credibility very much under question. I'm not sure they can really continue with him as manager next season. So appointing him permenantly (and presumably calling off the search for a longer-term replacement) feels like yet another decision taken half-cocked by the Glazers / Woodward, only taking the short term in account, and not showing any vision for the direction of the club. Add it to the pile, I guess?

    How does Matic not see that coming. Just leaves him free to hit it.

    If anyone on here is going to download it for free, might I suggest you follow their suggestion of making a donation? I've made up the number in my head that I would've bought it for, were it on sale on Steam. There are lots of little crowdfunders but probably the best way to donate is by wire to the actual trust
  8. I'm really excited about what getting a new CPU architecture in consoles is going to mean for gaming. Jaguar, which powers both the Bone and PS4, is basically a laptop CPU. From a period of time when AMD was lagging behind Intel hugely, at that. Having an eight-core Ryzen 2 chip in there is going to be a ridiculous leap. Ray tracing I'm not so sold on, by comparison. Even the best PC graphics cards struggle to offer a good experience with ray traced graphics. In a year and a half's time, will the tech have advanced much? Plus there is the need to fit into the lower power / heat budget of a console too. Seems too early for it.

    Deserved one point from that, maybe zero.

    Have you not seen Annihilation? Anyway, tried not to think about this too much, this immediately came to mind: Rhubarb is a great pick too.

    Yeah, I think we are basically betting on his pride. I don't doubt he still wants to okay regularly at the top level of European football. But he's clearly not going to do that for us. Bit disturbed by constant reports that Herrera is off, and the apparent acceptance of this by some fans. IMO he's our most consistent midfielder, and probably also the most flexible in terms of his position and role. Also until we sort out the right side of our attack and defence, he does a lot of thankless work down that side. Him leaving probably changes our situation from needing three players to maybe needing more like five.
  14. Wish I'd stayed for spider-man into the verse's post credits scenes - didn't know there were any, they sounded pretty great. I bet cinemas hate this trend though. Surely they want the people out ASAP, so they can send their minimum wage lackeys in to clean up, and get the next lot of punters in as quickly as possible.

    Bit of a puzzling one. Wolves were great, and probably have quite a good chance to go on and win the cup, but I don't think our attack every really clicked. Which is odd because it was the same XI that got so many goals during Solskjaer's initial great run. We attacked in a very samey way, with little interchanging of positions or destabilising movement - particularly Martial hugged the touchline too much. I think Wolves won the battle in midfield too, with only really Herrera having the mobility to match them. Maybe McTominay and / or Fred deserved to stay in the team given their recent performances?
