    Wolves thread 2020/21

    Agreed. No one knows what will happen to "home advantage" under Covid rules. I have found Molineux to be one of the loudest stadiums in recent years, though most PL stadia are very quiet in the modern era. A lot of teams have great away support. The lack of crowds could change the dynamic...

    West Ham players and manager return positive Covid tests

    Yes it's incredible really. Football may keep going but it's hard to see schools staying open if they have to send whole classes home for ten days to wait for test results. Football clubs get private test results within hours. What a fiasco.

    West Ham players and manager return positive Covid tests

    Don't forget that a significant number of tests are false positives and the vast majority of those who do get Covid don't have any symptoms or very mild ones. I think it will be treated like an injury unless you have a large number of players ruled out making the game a farce. Football is going...

    Bournemouth (H) Pre-Match Thread

    I suspect the Rags are not guilty as well. The update confirms it was just another fake news story from the Daily Mail. Next week the lie will be repeated on social media until it becomes the accepted truth that City refused to pay for the Covid tests. And so it goes on. To be honest I think the...

    United thread 2020/21

    It's not terminal unfortunately. The problems are in the coaching and financial areas. The financial ones have been well documented.

    United thread 2020/21

    The Rags have gone backwards. The points total last season was the same as the year before, 66 points. Their younger players like Rashford and Martial have just not improved and will probably never make the elite level (Rashford has been ruined by United in my view). Maguire was good at...

    Bournemouth (H) Pre-Match Thread

    The story says Spurs paid for West Brom's tests but United and City "have not followed suite." It seems very likely that neither City or United were even asked and the issue is not even on their radar. There are no comments from either Manchester club so the story is not even confirmed. It is...

    Bournemouth (H) Pre-Match Thread

    That Mail headline says United and City have "decided not to pay for EFL clubs' Covid tests" but there is not a single line in the story to back up the allegation and neither club has commented. It's just another twisted, distorted, and fake version of events from Mike Keegan...not really a...

    Double Pivot

    You make a fair point. I thought we were solid apart from a crazy 10 minute spell. Like many, I like Rodri and Gundo as players in certain matches but not alongside each other against teams with pace. We have had problems in the area just in front of the centre halves (because of Ferdy's...

    Can't spell Dinho!

    Double Pivot

    It worked a lot better than Ferdy at centre half with Gundo and Rodri in front. Perhaps Ferdy smells danger better than Rodri. They did look more solid. I also thought the centre halves (mostly) worked well in a simple right footer alongside a left footer partnership. Need to see the formation...

    Wolves (A) Post-Match Thread

    I really like Cancelo and think, with time, he will be an excellent player for us. I would like to see what he is like in defensive midfield as well. I think right back is probably his best slot but Walker is immense at the moment (probably because of the increased competition).

    Wolves (A) Post-Match Thread

    Cancelo will come in at left back (or even Ake) but Mendy will play his fair share of games. I feel for Mendy though because he was sensational at Monaco and looked brilliant for us in his first few games before being injured. His injuries have killed his pace.

    Liverpool thread 2020/21

    This story has been around for years but I haven't seen any UK media mention the Liverpool link, certainly not in a prominent way. Standard Chartered are Liverpool's main sponsors following their £160m deal in 2018 and the club trumpets them on their website. Can you imagine the coverage we...

    United thread 2020/21

    You are right of course but I still think football has a lot of kudos and can open the door to other investment opportunities like the Silver Lake deal at City. It pains me to say it but United remain a huge global presence. The Glazers have run them into the ground and when they signal they are...

    Return of supporters

    Agreed. Six months takes us up to next March anyway. Can't see full stadiums this season sadly. Only positive is we will save a few quid (at least us matchgoers will). I'll put my savings into a European away trip fund for future years. It's a shame for people like Sergio in his last season for...

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    You are right that it has to be a collective effort but the messages would be more effective if there was much more emphasis on protecting the vulnerable. It might be easier to focus on the real danger caused by younger people mixing with older age groups than vague notions about behaviour in...

    Wolves (A) Post-Match Thread

    Gabby also turns up for the big games like the FA Cup semi and final or the away game at Real Madrid. He will just get better and better. The way Raheem hung back to stay onside before his assist last night was superb. He wouldn't have done that two years ago. I am sure Jesus will make the same...

    United thread 2020/21

    But if a Saudi consortium came in they would have very deep pockets to invest and in the longer-term would make huge profits. The Manchester United brand is one of the strongest in the world (not just sport). It is a licence to print money especially with the rise of digital technology. We are...

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    We seem to be using Spain, France, and the USA as our benchmarks. This crisis has been escalated by a total failure of our political systems and structures of Government. The system here is built for failure. The sort of people who rise to the top of the Civil Service and Politics are...
