Or if Kompany could have played...maybe he isn't his old self, but the others don't really cut it.

Re: English Football 2015-16

Now there's rumours that TSO is getting three year contract at ManU, but actually why don't they give him two year contract and then part ways no matter how good he does? There's clear history that he always screws up on the third year.

Re: English Football 2015-16

I hope he fails gloriously in the first season this time if this is true

Also idk how United fans feel about this, but I think there is already a couple of season worth of "Mou damage" being done at the club as we stand, so now they should look for someone who would build for longterm instead of a quick trophy smash and grab (if they can spend money on not Depays)

Re: English Football 2015-16

I think the whole "build for longterm" is an idea that a lot of United fans/shareholders are still having trouble getting their heads around.

Re: English Football 2015-16

It kinda is sad that United's financial results get so much media attention. A better product out on the pitch will do me fine.

Also on another note - that Irish MF playing for Peterborough last night looked really good. He should be making a step up next season. With some of the dort in our squad he prob could get a look in for MON.

Re: English Football 2015-16

Bojan has signed a new deal. Stated that the club's great history, a love of the local cuisine and the attractiveness of female Stoke residents as the key force behind his decision.

Re: English Football 2015-16

oh didn't think you were actually serious lol

in short:
momentum is a very real and mayor variable, but there are other variables which are far more important(quality of the team LDO)

Re: English Football 2015-16

no way to prove that it has a significant impact on performance, and even if it did (which I concede it might), how one could go about quantifying it.

Re: English Football 2015-16

I like how the goalposts have seemingly been shifted from 'not real' to 'not provable or quantifiable'. the latter benchmark of course ruling out around 99.9% of football discussion other than who scored more goals or something.

there isn't really a way to proof that physical difference have a significant impact either is there?
yet we all agree that running faster or controlling a ball better is indeed very valuable

If momentum is a real and mayor variable, but at the same time it's not possible to isolate it from other variables, how do you even know it's real?
