    I'm pretty sure the guys who sacked him have since been sacked themselves now.

    If you've ever been to a derby at AAMI Park and experienced the crowd for yourself it is an extremely outlandish call though. You don't need that many people in the terraces to generate some good noise at AAMI Park, the stadium is excellent. Derby crowds are always super vocal too, especially...

    I don't understand the logic that he would be an undeserving winner if he managed to win it all with a team that you think is inferior to his competitors. How does that make sense?

    It probably seems unfair to single out one person after that collapse but I thought Rashford's effort as a sub was absolutely atrocious. Bruno, Garnacho, and even Antony, were working their arses off all game but Rashford barely got out of a jog in the 20 odd minutes he managed. Chelsea were...

    I can't wait for the umpires to overcorrect that next week when Hawthorn take on Collingwood...He'll probably win more high contact free's in one game against us than he did for the entirety of his last season with us.

    I don't think your prediction is that outrageous Jatz I've been a season ticket holder with MVFC since 09 and I've seen plenty of other members that I know drop off and lose interest in recent years. I still go to as many games as I can but I find that the experience and overall atmosphere is...

    Game Day Round 3 vs. Brisbane, Gabba, 7:30pm Thurs 28/03

    Noble in for Markov seems an obvious change. I feel like when we were playing our best football last season the attacking runs from defence that Noble and Nick generated were a huge factor in it. With Noble out of the side and Nick playing midfield our ball movement has really suffered. We...

    This is pretty wide spread these days but how often do you think that these people are actually watching full 90 minute matches of teams that they don't support? Unfortunately it's much easier to follow short clips and memes on 'banter' pages through twitter, reddit, facebook, etc. than it is to...

    Manchester United: Where to next?

    That part was infuriating to listen to. This is one of their best episodes yet though. Some other interesting take aways for those who haven't seen it: He says that some players refused to captain the club (in Maguire's absence) for high profile games and that they didn't have the balls to...

    I don't think anyone is actually suggesting that though, are they? I personally don't believe they are remotely similar, and I do say that as someone who has been called a 'white dog/bastard/campaigner' plenty of times growing up in an area with a strong population of First nations people. But you...

    The Athletic had a stat piece on this earlier in the season. The crux of it was that when McTominay starts games he was being given license to get forward because no one else was scoring. Which means that Bruno spends more time in deeper positions and so a lot of the "chances" that he's creating...

    I wish I shared your optimism. You have to factor in the problem of his wages. Any club who would be interested in giving him a chance isn't going to be able to offer anywhere near his current wages (I believe around £200k pw), so I can't imagine there being many suitors willing to cough up 30m...

    Definitely burning out. He's played more football than any other outfield player in Europe over the past couple of years and that was always going to catch up with him eventually. When was the last time we had any sort of update on Mount? If it weren't for the massive fee I'd have completely...

    Has anyone seen this weeks 'Stick to Football' episode with Rooney yet? Well worth a watch if you haven't. Some interesting take aways: Says the players never really gave Moyes a chance to succeed. Neville mentions that Moyes once told him that he felt like the unwanted step father replacing a...

    Manchester United: Where to next?

    Ideally yeah, but then the problem is that you have to wait for the investigation/trial to play out to avoid unfair dismissal claims, and then when the charges are eventually dropped there's not much that can be done. I genuinely believe that when the charges were made public that United...

    Manchester United: Where to next?

    The bolded bit is why he's making these comments. The waters have already been tested and that door has been slammed shut. They can't get a decent fee for him if they're announcing to the world that he has no future at the club.

    I preferred the longer season format of 1-3 and felt like the pacing and story/character development was a lot better for it. And this ending was the one that left me the most unsatisfied. I still enjoyed it, just not as much as the other three (although I recognise that I'm in the minority...

    I still enjoyed it but I think that was the weakest TD season so far. I think that both the criticism and praise it is getting now are way OTT. It was neither great, nor terrible. Definitely agree with those who are saying that this would have been a lot better as a stand alone project outside...

    We'd rather him as an opponent. His record against United is atrocious. 25 games, no goals, and only eight wins.

    He was actually the first one to hype up Collingwood and Nick Daicos as Premiership and Brownlow favourites during pre season last year... BUT as soon as we hit a slight form slump in the lead in to finals he was also one of the first to jump off the band wagon. So I guess he had all bases covered.

    Good post Misher I don't really disagree with any of that. Only things I have to add to that are... I don't think anyone does. A proper cull has been needed for years. Shaw doesn't belong on this list. He's one of our best when he's fit and can do a job long term at LB or LCB. The rest I...

    Premier Lg EPL Matchday 25 & 26 - On Optus Sport

    There's some truth in this but you're overlooking the main reason why the defence has been so poor, which is because of all the injuries back there. We've had 10 different CB combinations this season and have spent a huge chunk of the season without a single fit left back. Obviously there's more...

    The team is so much better when we have both Martinez and Shaw playing together. They're absolutely crucial to how we move the ball. Hopefully it wasn't as bad as it first looks because we can't replace his influence.

    That was definitely our strongest XI. It's so good to have Licha back, and I'm excited to see more of Casemiro & Mainoo together. That was some of our best and worst football and I definitely thought we'd blown that there but what a strike from Mainoo. The most impressive thing about him so...
