Yeah I can't really disagree, I never watched him play for Ajax so no idea how good he was. But he's looked terrible so far.

He looked like one of those £20-30m players that could probably make the step up to a bigger league if given time to settle in, utter madness that they paid world class money for him.

Pogba wouldn’t have had half the hype had he just stayed at United through his career (he’d still have had plenty, they obviously live to hype a young player).

But the fact he left, then looked pretty handy at a time United’s midfield started to look a bit shambolic added to the myth a bit. Buying him back for a world record fee, or close to it when he’d left on a free (or very cheap?) just made the whole think look like a bit of a vanity project for all concerned.

He had talent, and could score the odd wonder goal or make a great assist but it was all very few and far behind. Like Gerrard but if Gerrard had no drive or heart.

"When we heard that United were interested we were hoping to get around €20 million to €25 million as he had such a bad season."
"Two days later we received an official faxed bid of €60 million from United, the room erupted in laughter, I told my assistant to fax back, asking for €64 million."
"The next morning, a new bid arrived of €64 million."
"I remember thinking had the world gone crazy? I mean, we had better players in our youth team! I ordered my assistant to get a bottle of Champagne - it felt like winning a lottery."

Funny even though obviously not true, but they're 100% the biggest 'saw them coming' club around. Its like once they go for someone they're shit scared of looking silly if they dont end up signing said player so they just keep going. I honestly think they could be goaded into paying really big money for literally any half decent footballer.

Erik ten Hag says Fulham "should apologise" for a TikTok posted on their account that appears to mock Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes.

The video shows the midfielder go down and clutch his leg before swiftly getting up again during United's 2-1 defeat to the Cottagers on Saturday.

The clip is dubbed with jaunty music and captioned: "So glad he's OK."

"I would say it is not right. Totally out of order and wrong. They should apologise for this," said Ten Hag.

That is brilliant. I like Ten Hag, he seemed fairly bland and boring before but the fact that their fans hate him and he's starting to get tetchy is far more interesting.

After there was clearly zero contact with anyone. He’s the one who should be apologising.

Has Ten Hag always been this thin-skinned about his players? Feels performative, like he's worried about losing/having already lost the dressing room, and is now making an exaggerated show of backing one of his 'leaders' to try and keep them onside.

Ironically though, by saying Fernandes has a high pain threshold, he's really just confirming that his captain is a serial diver and cheat. If you have a high pain threshold but roll around screaming whenever someone grazes your ankle, there's something afoot...

I’m sure most would want to win the game but would probably prefer City (or Arsenal) to win the league ahead of us. They can hope they beat City and then hope Ciry beat us next week.

I was probably like that in most games when we played Mourinho’s Chelsea in 2007 for example.

He’s a hard listen at the best of times, even when he’s not talking bollocks. God knows what United fans make of him. Get the feeling that the ones who say “give him time, it took Ferguson/Klopp x years to win a trophy don’t really mean that and are just going through the motions a bit. Surely no one is watching them and is convinced he’s the man to bring sustained, long term success.

That said, they could beat our weakened up side, get Wolves in the semi and then they’ll say he’s made 3 cup finals in 2 years and everything is all on the right track. Either way, they look miles from any title challenge anytime soon.

I don't think he was limited, just lazy. His range of passing was excellent and he could use a wide variety of passing techniques to craft chances. He wanted to be a luxury player though, he expected to be able to do nothing but spray passes with no other responsibility.

He had a good range of passing but for every perfect pass that would be drooled over several more were overhit and sent out of play. It's not like he could dictate the game like a Scholes or Carrick for them. He also needed carrying in terms of work rate.

He was basically a poor man's Veron.

He certainly had the talent imo.

I think that's why Souness kept laying in to him. He was a great midfielder but had no time for show ponys. It annoyed him to see such a waste of talent due to not focusing on the things that mattered.

To me he was no different to the likes of Taraabt or Ben Arfa. He'd occasionally look really good or score a screamer and then live off it for months. I feel like talent is more than just being able to do a fancy flick or score a banger from 30 yards or occasionally nail a 60 yard cross field pass. There's got to be a semblance of actually being a useful player in a team and doing the boring bits like pressing and passing etc.

I think those issues come down to application rather than talent though. Look at how Trent's passing has evolved over the years, he's incredibly talented but he obviously works hard behind the scenes to keep improving.

Pogba reached the level of raw talent and then basically stopped.

Not often you can give Sky much credit, but they have a piece on Fernandes there. About how Ten Hag says he needs more protection from refs and they really make Ten Hag look the idiot he is  :)

- Fernandes has been fouled 18 times this season. Bruno Guimereas has been fouled 78 in comparison
- Ferdnandes is number 111 over a game in terns of most fouled players
- in 90 mins only he is number 214

In case its not clear Ten Hag you weapon, Fernandes is a diving bastard. He doesn't need more protecting from referee's because he's not being fouled. He's a cheat and it's about time people are wakening up to that

Ex players of theirs openly stated that they'd never decline like we did, but they've done exactly that, maybe even worse than we declined, too.


I'd have to say that this is correct.
In the 11 years since they last won it, they haven't challenged once. Yes they have finished 2nd twice and 3rd twice, but they were not close AT ALL at the end and never looked 'in the race' at any point, despite what SKY might have wanted people to believe.
Cups in that time - 4. 1 FA Cup, 2 League Cups and one UEFA Cup (part of a double, which they sacked a manager for)

In the 11 years after we won the league, we challenged the following year (losing to Arsenal) and 2 or 3 times around the millenium.
Cups in that time - 5. 2 FA Cups, 2 League Cups and one UEFA Cup (Part of a treble).

I mean there's not much in it but they seem to be doing worse by some fine margins.
I have noticed that they have inherited our old trick of signing players who looked wonderful, only for them to be cloggers when they played for us.

:lmao

Even Martin Tyler had a dig in the empty O/T when we beat them 4-2 that you could hear Fernandes screaming yet again. He's a fucking cheating little rat faced c*nt you Ming the Merciless tribute act :wanker

If he was so tough, he'd have pen in the area looking for a pass.

To me he was no different to the likes of Taraabt or Ben Arfa. He'd occasionally look really good or score a screamer and then live off it for months. I feel like talent is more than just being able to do a fancy flick or score a banger from 30 yards or occasionally nail a 60 yard cross field pass. There's got to be a semblance of actually being a useful player in a team and doing the boring bits like pressing and passing etc.

Wasn’t it inglethorpe who has just said talent gets you to 16, attitude gets you to 35

Ten Hag on the weasel-faced prick, Fernandes, specifically mentioning the point on Saturday where he lay writhing on the pitch in supposed agony then jumping up when he realises they're on the attack:

"I see social media criticising him, it is pathetic. He had a serious injury but he continued to play on Saturday and then also he fought to be part of this game. He has a very high pain threshold and last year, he did something similar against Spurs and I think in the semi-final (against Brighton). It shows his leadership."

I'll tell you what it shows  and that's one cheating Portuguese tosser that shames my club. Robbo and Keano would have ripped his goolies off !!
There is nothing wrong with striving to win, so long as you don't set the prize above the game. There can be no dishonour in defeat nor any conceit in victory. What matters above all is that the team plays in the right spirit, with skill, courage, fair play,no favour and the result accepted without bitterness. Sir Matt Busby CBE KCSG 1909-1994
