    The Man Utd Thread

    Torres had injuries for a couple of seasons prior plus just wasn’t the right fit for a slow ponderous Chelsea side. The best of Torres was seen when Liverpool played fast counter attacking play with Gerrard just behind slipping in balls quick and early from midfield so he can make his darting runs off the last defender. Torres and Chelsea was just a bizarre fit, Lampard isn’t that player and the team wasn’t going to drastically change to accommodate how Torres plays, neither is Torres Drogba 2.0. It stunk of Abramovich playing billionaires championship manager. Everyone thought it was a bad move at the start and it wasn’t long till Torres felt the same, he never looked the same person in a blue shirt. I’d say at least we got £50m for him but we blew most of it on Carroll...

    Narcos - Season 4 on 16 November

    Loved this just like every other series. Felix I thought was almost too nice to be a Cartel boss until his darker side came to the fore in that final act. I did expect

    There’s definitely an anti Liverpool sentiment on this site. It’s rather bizarre reasoning of ‘I don’t like Liverpool to win because they will celebrate’ well no shit! I think it more shows the average age of those here having grown up in the 80’s during Liverpool’s dominance and thus still retaining a bias against them. Having grown up during the late 90s and early 00s I’d feel the same way about United. I’ve had many a year of United fans being smug every time they won the league and I’d be thinking what have you got to be smug about? You literally only support them because they win the league every year. Don’t understand why people are acting like the sky is falling in, it’s February, only one game lost and sitting on top of the league by three points at the beginning of the season everyone here would have snatched at that happily with both hands. Sure there’s a bit of a funk going on but City’s last poor period coincided with them turning a five point lead into a seven point deficit. We just have to hope that the team pull out of what has only been a dip in form in the grand scheme of things.

    I know it’s all very bizarre, we’ve actually increased our lead over City. Defence has been patched up job in the last two games but now we have Matip back who was solid next to VVD before his injury and obviously Klopp feels that Milner is more able than Clyne in the right back slot. Central midfield is now full of options again after a little injury spell there too. Definitely should be too much for West Ham tonight.

    Arsenal

    See I don’t get this. You’re supposed to support your team yet you want them to lose heavily, damage their champions league qualification chances and thus risk their entire progress as a team over the coming years because an irrational hatred towards some northern club. Even if the club in question was Spurs I’d find it bizarre, that just isn’t being a fan.

    What are you on about? Watching United go from bad to worse will never stop being fun. I miss Jose...

    Never seen ‘Beast’ used in a racial sense, always more towards physically imposing and aggressive players. A player who is able to dominate the opposition through pure physical presence and athleticism, I used to call Andy Carroll a beast back in his Liverpool days as when he was on form, such as his FA cup final cameo, he was unplayable for just that reason.

    Why do we separate "retro" from general gaming?

    I find retro based topics get eaten up my modern gaming thought and the throw away nature of modern gaming when they appear in discussion. Take the SNES mini thread rather than a great opportunity to discuss the merits of a wonderfully curated set of classic games it was basically a thread of comparing them to modern games and hacking the thing. Personally I think all retro based topics should be in the retro folder. That includes reissues of classic games etc.

    On a side note had anyone watched that Sunderland documentary series on Netflix? If not do. It’s like they commissioned it to show them bouncing back up from the championship instead it’s a series of unfortunate events starring Sunderland. It’s unintentional comedy gold in parts but must be so painful for the fans to witness.

    That no one has mentioned Manchester United gives away the age of many one here. For any one who was in school during the 90’s to early 00’s they were the team that brought out the irrational hatred. Apart from nearly everyone supporting them their supporters were oh so smug about the success of the team. You could have defined a United fan mainly from smugness when talking about football and an actual lack of knowledge of football. Then there was the period from about ‘04 to ‘06 with the invincibles and Chelsea’s Russian injection in which United became the third best team in the country for a few years. Suddenly the majority of United fans either decided not to take an interest in football anymore or supported Chelsea. For those of my generation the term glory hunter is synonymous with Manchester United fans.

    Yeah, there isn’t a side who could win the league with injuries to their key players. It’s one of the bits of luck you need to go the full way.

    If we can get through the next two games unscathed then I’ll even start to believe that we can become invincible. Arsenal at home should be winnable. Their defence is there to be had. City away will be tricky, while beforehand they’d have been happy to play out another draw now they’ll have to throw the kitchen sink at us whilst treating it like a cup final. City playing attacking football would usually play into our hands so if the team keeps their nerve and exploit the space City will create then I’ll be a believer.
