    Currently, in the PL, Alonso has 1 goal and 7 assists to his name... only Hazard, Sané and Callum Wilson have more assists, and he's equal with Sterling.

    Please let it be a Jordan Henderson back pass that goes wrong!

    When he took over here the second time we'd recovered from a shaky start under di Matteo to finish 3rd with a Europa League title. The squad was still very strong. I don't recall United winning the title after finishing 16 points behind Leicester the previous season. Maybe you could refresh my memory?

    Don't worry, James, they won't. They'll stutter at some point, City will overtake them and the media will hail Pep instead! 😉
  5. Brighton 1 Chelsea 2

    When he came back for his second stint with us I said he was on the decline... yes, he'd still win the odd trophy here and there, but the relentless several trophies a season, season after season were over, and that the gaps would get longer between trophies until the well would eventually dry up. I received a fair amount of abuse for that, especially when we quite fortunately won the Prem that year. I stand by what I said back then, and I very much doubt he'll be at United next season. Indeed, I doubt he'll win another trophy ever again (the Supporter's Shield and MLS Cup don't count!)

    If people are too stupid/ignorant to realise it's wrong to use such language, then life-time bans for those caught doing so may concentrate the minds of others!

    100% agree on that. Irrespective of whether Spurs fans call themselves using that word, we shouldn't. It should never be a case of "well, we'll stop calling them **** once they stop calling themselves ****" It's wrong, whoever uses the term. We should stop using it.

    Just because Petro Poroshenko is a nasty piece of work doesn't suddenly make Putin an angel! 😉 It's a bit like the Assad/ISIS conundrum... who's the 'good guy' in that conflict?

    But I have taken up a view point. You said: "I'll worry about proof when someone dares to say he wanted to stay." I replied: "In the summer of 2017? I believe he wanted to stay. Now, where's your proof? "

    Typical of you... keep moving the goalposts in order to avoid answering the question.

    Agree with all of this. I never expected us to be challenging for the title this season... top 4, back in the CL for the following season, and decent showing in cups (maybe even winning one again) is what I was, and still am, hoping for. We've played some good football at times. At others I've felt frustrated. However, we have a new manager with a different approach/philosophy; that was never going to fall into place immediately. Indeed, I've been pleasantly surprised at how quickly some of the players have taken to the new system and style. There are clearly some squad members surplus to requirements, and we're short of viable options in a couple of positions, but overall we're not too far from being a very decent side.

    I'm fluent and couldn't find anything either.
