  1. Yesterday wasn't so much a case of everything we hit going in as it was presenting a better quality of chance and controlling the finishes. Sure Paterson scored a worldie but the other goals were not quite laid on a plate but much, much better quality chances than the usual 25 yarder or shot from an acute angle. How often would Paterson have shot for the Rhodes goal previously? Would Windass have cut the ball back for Reach in previous games? We converted a large number of our chances because they were quality chances... We equally were a few last ditch chal
  2. Try watching less muck. It won't improve your eyesight but it'll stop it getting worse.
  3. I forgot to mention in my earlier post... I had an issue at a supermarket where we were stopping... first day there, paid for a small amount of shopping (milk, fresh bread, etc) with a 500kr note, shopping came to maybe about 80kr... cashier chatted to me in pretty flawless English whilst scanning stuff then gave me no change. When I asked about it she said that the shop policy was to not give change. I was pretty incredulous and tried to argue with her but all of sudden she couldn't understand English... I ended up ringing a Danish mate who spoke to her on the phone, presumably gave her an ea
  4. That was a far worse challenge than the one he was sent off for earlier in the season. Awful decision when already on a yellow.
  5. So what you're saying is if you ignore the good seasons and only focus on the bad... All our seasons have been bad? That's certainly true.
  6. Richard Evans... for the briefest of brief periods preseason in 2004/05 (I think) he looked like he was going to be an absolute star for us in an otherwise dark period... skillful, pacey... injured all the time.
  7. He doesn't kick up a stink though, quite the opposite, he just gets on with it. I imagine if you were a porter and were asked to work as a surgeon you wouldn't be as effective.
  8. I was just trying to say, maybe we could have bought someone... anyone... and that wouldn't help our cause. If we can't get the right people in its better to bring nobody in.
  9. Only team I'd be 'worried' about in terms of January recruitment is Forest, who have picked up some decent players at the pointy end of the field, other than that its all a bit meh. I wonder whether the fans who complain at no signings are the same as complain when we make signings and they turn out to be gash.
  10. I can't believe our team of journeyman championship players and a backline almost exclusively made up of kids lost to an Everton team packed full of internationals. Not good enough.
  11. I did the round trip up to Helsingor, across to Helsingborg, down to Malmö and across the bridge... Good use of a day off you run out of stuff to do
  12. United are on BBC iPlayer for anyone wanting to watch. Started well which bodes well for when they're playing these types of opposition week in week out in a couple of seasons.
  13. I have a different but connected opinion... for me he never seems to have his positioning right so he's making minor adjustments at the point that shots are coming in, which means he's flat footed when it comes to actually diving for the ball.
  14. I'm pretty sure I saw a post on Facebook last night claiming clear evidence of a PL agenda in that United should be given fixtures against three big clubs immediately after gaining their first win...
  15. I think we have to be sensible. He's been good recently but we have to be careful it's not just a flash in the pan. Absolutely offer him a new contract but I wouldn't go overboard. Three year contract, £3,300pw is worth half a million over the course of the contract. Stuff of dreams for a 19yo. We shouldn't ever again offer a player a contract that can't be matched; we've thrown so much money away by giving players ridiculous contacts that make them too comfortable.
  16. I hope that's not aimed at me, if so my intention is quite the opposite. I'm just pointing out we have to treat the kids carefully. Of course there's an element of "if you're good enough you're old enough" but Urhoghide, Shaw, Galvin... even Hunt (who didn't have the best game) are all just kids so should be managed in and out of the team. I think it's telling this year that we've put out teams full of kids against lower League teams and collectively they've looked the part, in years gone by we've put out seasoned pros from the second string and been humbled. Two clean
  17. Remember him? 12mths ago he was the next big thing after his performance in our FA Cup win against Premier League Brighton. We've got lots of promising youngsters but let's not get overexcited, let's give them the time to to continue to develop without lauding them as the new [insert legendary footballer here].
  18. I'm giving it Galvin... Not easy to make your debut in a tricky cup game on a bobbly pitch but he started off well and got better, seemed to have a natural instinct to want to play forward. Shaw was obviously excellent but we know what he's capable of.
  19. What I don't understand is why someone would want such a horrendous looking, impractical car. Its just hideous.
  20. Gaol awarded to United striker following CAR review.
  21. Based upon the bulk of his performances he's not good enough (Aston Villa aside) Based upon the Villa game in isolation he's unlucky not to be a full England International by now
  22. Well this lays to rest any accusations of Tony Pulis being behind the times.
