Sheffield Utd going above us with a win.

Which I think is better than Arsenal moving away from us, in the battle for 4th.

Let's hope we can get to some early 90s form smile (Blades fan here).

If ZZ keeps his job maybe about 100m if anyone else comes in about 50p

I think we need a holding midfield enforcer, Wanyama?
McT could do that. We are far more in need of an attacking MF player a la De Bruyne.

BMW A6 why are you obsessed with mentioning people's nationality when you're insulting them?
I’ve taken the trouble to read back through A6s’ posts. 83%* have homo erotic or sexual connotations. He mentioned Klopp being German in 2 which translates to less than 0.532%* of his posts.

Did you have a point to make? Or were you wrongly trying to score one?

  • I’ve used the M3SYE sauce of statistics. Yes I know it’s source. I just didn’t want to confuse him.

Got better things to do than point score with faceless people on the net, but here we are...

There's plenty if you go back a lil further than the end of your nose.

Klopp being German
Origi being Belgian
Your own James being Welsh
Deltona constantly being referenced as Dutch. (He's not alone there)

And many more.

Feel free to ignore it, just thinking out loud.

I’m still struggling to understand. What am I ignoring? Is there something wrong with using a footballers nationality whilst discussing them on a football forum?

If I was to,be asked to vote for my favourite Ronaldo....should the question anything other than the Portuguese or Brazilian one?

All true. But it’s a bit silly to bang on about a ‘foul’ that was actually a cringe-inducing dive.
If we're talking ''cringe inducing'' then shall we discuss Daniel James and his new, frankly bizarre not to mention irresponsible, habit of falling over and playing dead for a few seconds? (After diving first)

No more mention of people's nationality.

The point I tried to make, which was clearly a waste of time, but I'll try again, was that when someone is insulted, by calling them a snowflake, or an idiot or the c word or whatever, it's unnecessary to mention their nationality. The insult is enough surely?

For arguments sake, there's a difference (in law) between calling a French lad a "stupid c word" and calling him a "stupid French c word".

Your Ronaldo comparison isn't relevant, as you're not showing any hostility are you? You're just identifying one or the other.

Was the identification of a nationality necessary in any of the examples I gave?

No.

He literally runs into people and then throws himself down. People will start ignoring him, so when he does get properly injured it’ll be his own fault when there is no stop in the game.

IF Pogba goes in summer then: Maddison, McGinn and Fernandes

IF Pogba stays then: Maddison and McGinn or Fernandes

We need another striker though and that should be Haaland imo.

To be fair, he got absolutely hammered twice in quick succession. I thought he had broke ribs on the second one (as did the United doc who spent a few mins checking his breathing)!

Nothing wrong with him, he was just being "streetwise"

Can't imagine anyone kicking the ball out for him in future now.

Silly comment. He was obviously winded. He weighs about 3 stone and gets nailed repeatedly.

How is it a silly comment? Giggs admitted that he feigned injury a week ago, are we supposed to believe him now?

Even Ashely young didn't put the ball out.

James got hit hard twice, the second causing a nose bleed.

But lets all cry for Origi who nearly had his leg broke in the tackle before the United goal. The bell end couldn't even decide which leg he'd had snapped.

Liverpool "always the victim" F.C

"Victim" shouts, "dippers". Had a lot of this recently. You lot really are upset about something aren't you?

No it's fans across the board who enjoy a good laugh at Liverpool's fans and the victim card you all love to play.

Don't think any United fans on here are upset and fully understand where the club is currently. No in house arguing and banning of our own fans like you get on on the LFC thread.

Because no Liverpool fan has ever shouted "Munich" at MUFC rolleyes

There's pricks at every football club that should be banned for life.

Totally agree...

But does it help when you are saying 'always the victims' which then followed chants from the game ''the sun was right, murderers ''
