About

I am a United fan, every since I was 5 years old, raised in Manchester by a United fan of 60 years.
I now live in Stoke, who knows why. Still get a few games in, nowhere near as much as I did pre-glazers.

I am a stair designer. It's dull, but it pays the bills. I dream of being a manga artist.
Everything else? Play footy, trying to join a team. Not bothered about making it big, just love a good run
around rain or shine.

    Thoughts on Shaw and Herrera? Plus, LVG's mastermind so far in the WC?

    Not particularly. My ideal targets: Rodriguez (LB), Vidal (CM), Clasie (CM), Griezmann (Winger), Indi (CB)

    Vidal is unrealistic but we can put in a 50m bid and see what happens.

    Ideally, we'd go after Klopp now not to appoint him as the next manager, but to convince him to take over in 2018. Let the man carry out and honor his contract. Give him his 3/4 years to take Dortmund to the top. Let's face it, Klopp is the obvious first choice for the job, and we should not be settling for anyone else. Klopp is the end game, THE man we need to get. Until then, with the right backroom staff I reckon a tandem of Giggs and Butt (or Scholes or G.Neville) could take the reins until Klopp sees out his contract. This involves bringing back Meulensteen, Phelan, and Carlos Queiroz who was our tactical mastermind in the mid 2000s. You can bet if Giggs and SAF's old staff is at the helm, SAF himself will provide guidance throughout. Why not Van Gaal? If Klopp is the man we need (myself and other pundits and fans certainly think he is), what is the purpose of hiring Van Gaal for a little over 3 years? He's already 62, only available after the world cup which will severely harm our transfer ability in arguably the most crucial transfer window we've had in years. Van Gaal would, like Giggs be a short term solution. There is no point that I see in hiring Van Gaal if Klopp is quite evidently the man needed to take us forward.

    What do you think?

    No power, no pace, no urgency, no heart, no passion. I don't even know what the fuck it is we're doing.

    Ah, I see. They're my local club, so I was just curious. It's actually pretty fun to go to games every now and then; they do actually have an "ultras" section that hold parades to matches and have plenty of songs, although they are admittedly not quite as good as a lot of European clubs'. And the lower leagues can be entertaining (bright emerging prospects + lackluster defending = amazing moments), but it can be frustrating when the teams can't convert a single chance.

    Thank you for recognizing that! While the men's team certainly isn't setting the world alight, the women's team has been on top of the world rankings for something like six years now, so it does annoy me when people pull the "Americans can't possibly know anything about football since no one plays it or cares about it over there" card.

    Just out of curiosity, you say you're from Manchester in your bio, but you list the Seattle Sounders as one of your favorite teams. Why is that? I don't think it's a bad thing or anything, I'm just curious, since most people in the UK seem to completely discount the MLS as being terrible (it isn't that great compared to European football, but it's getting better).

    If we had Strootman we can play a 4-1-4-1 and we'd be amazing.

    I get the feeling Moyes only played that line up because he had no choice.

    Buttner was decent yesterday, I won't be so harsh on him from now. He actually looked better than Evra, and defended!! Couldn't believe it. Good shout.
