  1. He's clearly proved he's still got what it takes in the four games he's played for Inter.
  2. Are you forgetting that this is Derby ft. Wayne Rooney now? It's pretty much the most exciting draw we could have had. They're also managed by Phillip Cocu, an under-rated Mark Heap lookalike. He even does that thing when talking that Mark Heap does where he widens his eyes and looks shifty and panicked.

    Is anyone starting to worry that SA might do something miraculous here? 154-2 and the pitch is looking very flat. England could do with a spinner, but we've picked 5 seamers.
  4. His second was a fantastic goal. Ed Woodward and the Glaziers are still not convinced he was worth the money.

    If you're being harsh, you could say that the last-wicket partnership papered over a few cracks as the batting performance had been a bit sub-par before they got England up to 400, but yes it was great fun. It's always good to see Stuart Broad's batting talent make a rare reappearance. He's scored over 3200 test runs, has a hundred and several 50s to his name, and he can bat. He used to be a genuine all-rounder, really. Great to see he can still do it. We're making inroads into their batting now. Don't let them off the hook here and the series will be in the bag.

    I can’t see England winning this test. They're knackered after a really difficult series with the illness and everything, and they've spent the last week patting themselves on the back for how well they've done. Everyone seems to think they've won the series already.
  7. And the Ambull expansion is both a fantastic miniature in it's own right and a piece of Games Workshop history.
  8. People who are saying they're out, I wouldn't go that far. I'll support the club forever, through thick and thin. It's painful to see what those parasites are doing but as the song says, "love United, hate Glaziers." It's a strange situation. Woodward and the Glaziers are the common factor in this decline, but we have spent eye-watering amounts of money. There's certainly incompetence. Is there a lack of intent? There seems to be little appetite to do what is necessary to fix things, and zero idea how to go about it. One problem seems to be a perception that just spending money is enough, rather than genuinely trying to sign the right players. We miss out on the player that would be right, and end up taking a gamble on someone else, often overpaying without doing the right research. Other clubs (Man City) identify a player and go and get them. We get weird hail mary signings like Di Maria, Falcao, Sanchez, and nearly Dybala which seem to happen without the manager's input. But we do spend the money. It's just that almost every single signing ends in disaster. Our best signing since Ferguson left is arguably Fellaini.
  9. Our record for the season is played 24, won 9, drawn 7, lost 8. That's appalling. Nowhere near good enough, even taking into account the transitional nature of the season and the fact that we are playing a lot of young players. I still support Ole and think he's generally doing the right things, but he needs help. Why can't we defend set pieces, for example? Nearly half our goals conceded this season have been from set pieces. We're the worst in the league at that. It's the manager's job to sort that out.
  10. We've been so crap tonight.
  11. Fucks sake. We've missed three chances from eight yards out and they've scored with an absolute miskick.
  12. Yep. I was half joking when I was talking about them not buying players this window because they are already thinking about having another new manager next season, but I'm starting to think that it might actually be true.
  13. We've sold a lot of those players we bought, usually because they were rubbish. Perhaps with Rashford out long-term, it's finally time to try to sign Bale. Perhaps Real Madrid would be willing to let him come to us on loan until the end of the season if we pay a percentage of his wages. I dunno. It'd almost certainly be disastrous.
