The problem yesterday for the Rags was effort. Pogba & Co. have reverted to type. Jones, Young and Smalling try hard. So I can see why they would keep them. They are just not good enough. The Rags mistake was backing Pogba over Mo. Ollie has made the same mistake. Poga & Co. clear out is required before they can progress. One step back to be able to take two forward. MU are like Chelsea now. The lazy uncommitted players are running the show. Long may it last. Would not happen with PeP or Ferguson or Klopp..... Think Poga under Ferguson, Sane with Pep, etc... Billy Big Balls is not tolerated!

We all knew this lad was way out of his depth. And isn't it just wonderful. Extend his contract and give him 400 mill to splash on more Fred types in the summer.
The championship awaits.

It's starting to look a bit ominous in Middle Earth, we need him to stay long enough to screw up the summer transfer window.

Woodward would have been dismissed in any other industry for gross incompetence. Long may he continue !


As long as the cash cow keeps the Glaziers in the style they're accustomed to, what goes on on the pitch is irrelevant.

Yes but they really need to sign somebody good looking so they can get lots of likes on social media

And got them to an FA cup semi.

What exactly do they expect? For the investment made they're about where they should be.

Good.
That fucker wanted to take points from us yesterday. Same as Rodgers and same as Red Ivan from Burnley. They didn't have any gain in this and still they played like a final their games vs us.

I am not saying to step aside, but don't be a fucking martyr in a battle where you have not place.

He's being professional. Just as Rafa was, just as Nuno was, sorry mate but that's bollox.

Agreed - it’s a football teams responsibility to their fans not to lose games if they can help it, regardless of what’s at stake

Harsh for my money, he’s got a squad similar to the ones we used to battle relegation with and made an fa cup semi and stayed up.
Tracking back is overrated.

Rafa was not professional, mate. We all saw that game and only two players from the georgies were professionals: Rondon and Atsu. What his defence did in that game was bent as fuck. And you can't do that without the approval of your manager.

I agree with professionalism, but our last three games were considered finals for those three managers and not their usual selfs.
Again, not saying get out of the way, but playing like you did, in my book, in means that you are almost the feeder club.

That's the issue I have. Leicester haven't played with 11 men behind the ball since Rogers took over and then against us suddenly they did. Scum.

Get what you're saying but also think it's fair to argue that he would've done that regardless of the context.

They didn't do the same thing in Klanfield when it ended 1-1. But again, at that time was Puel not Rodgers.
