  1. Re: Official Red Devils Thread I find it funny that the people (not necessarily on here, just in general) who were strongly opposed to Mourinho being appointed as our manager a year ago because of his controversies and arrogance over the years, are actually in favour of Van Gaal, whos career has been filled with both of those, including bust ups with people at all levels of the clubs he's been at. There's actually an argument to be made that he's the most Mourinho like manager in the game. I know our season was terrible, but is one bad season worth changing the type of manager, the type of m
  2. Re: Official Red Devils Thread I personally can't see Rode taking so much game time away from Kroos that it would be so much of an issue that Kroos would want to leave for more game time. Whilst Rode is a good player, he is nowhere near Kroos' quality, he won't force Kroos out of the starting line up that often for it to be an issue in my opinion, and he won't just be taking game time from Kroos, he will also be taking it from other players, players in midfield that Kroos already starts more than. If they were only playing him now to keep him happy then he wouldn't have as much appearances
  3. Re: Official Red Devils Thread This bolded comment has always confused me when it comes to people commenting about Kroos coming to Old Trafford. I've read it on many forums and in newspapers, that one of the main reasons that he would want to come to us is for more first team football. But if you look at the statistics, Kroos is better off staying at Bayern for first team football, he isn't exactly struggling for game time. I might be wrong, but I don't think anyone has made more total appearances for Bayern in all competitions this season than Kroos and the only players to start more game
  4. Re: Official Red Devils thread Full credit to Bilbao, there is very few teams that can say that they outplayed us in every area of the pitch in two games. They really impressed me over the two games, their level of commitment, their pressing all over the park and work rate was fantastic. Throw in the high quality way they played and how incredibly poor we played in both games, they fully deserved to win the tie. I've never really understood the whole "It's only the Europa League, we don't care about it" argument. With the line ups that SAF picked, it was obvious that he wanted to win the com

  6. Re: What realistic starting XI would you like to see your team line up with next seas You're right. But I wouldn't expect that to be the team that Ferguson would play in Europe. He would do what he usually does, pack the midfield with people who can win the ball, tackle, pass and keep possession and dominate the midfield battle. Players like Carrick, Anderson, Fletcher, Giggs, Scholes, (although he still hasn't mastered tackling ) and Hargreaves would play so we could get a decent amount of possession and use our passing game to our advantage as well as disrupt the passing game of the oppos

  9. Re: What realistic starting XI would you like to see your team line up with next seas This would probably be my ideal line-up for next season, it is an adaptation of the 4-3-3 formation that Ferguson has been using this season, it probably isn't the most balanced team you will ever see and will probably never happen but I would give it a go anyway GK: Foster - Yes I know that VDS just had a great season, but with Kuszczak pretty much guaranteed to leave in the summer in search of first team football I don't Foster to do the same thing. I think that Foster is a quality goalkeeper and I don't
  10. Re: Profiting from SM should result in a ban Yes in the first scenario there is two people who want gold membership. One who has bought gold membership from SM and one person who hasn't yet bought gold membership. Because the 2nd person who hasn't bought gold membership could yet still buy gold membership there is still the potential of that person buying one so that is potentially £14.99 for SM. If that person buys the gold membership from SM they get the £14.99 plus there is also the potential income from both the first person and the second person renewing the gold memberships, hence wh
  11. Re: Profiting from SM should result in a ban Doesn't concern me? The thread starter asked members of the forum for their opinion on a particular subject' date=' I am a member of the forum and I had an opinion on the matter, how does that make me pathetic? Sat on the forum today? The fact that I had a spare 15 minutes last night after getting home and decided to type a reply makes me pathetic? Does that mean that anyone who has spare time and posts on the forum is pathetic in your opinion? You have posted on the forum in your spare time, if this issue doesn't concern me then it wouldn't con
  12. Re: Profiting from SM should result in a ban I'm confused, how does this exactly promote SM? I would guess that the majority of the accounts/teams being sold to other people are people that are already playing SM, I would be surprised if people are getting people to part with their cash for an account on a game they have never played so selling accounts/teams is hardly bringing in new players to the game and promoting SM to people who haven't played the game before. I also disagree that it promotes SM as a game and a community, in my opinion it shows that the community doesn't care about
  13. Re: Profiting from SM should result in a ban I totally agree with you Craig, I have been thinking the same thing myself, I have seen numerous posts on the forum regarding people trying to sell their gold account with good teams on it for a profit. For those that think that just because you have paid for your gold account that you "own" it and can do what you like with it, I'm afraid you are mistaken. You only paid to receive the advantages of gold membership, not to buy the account, at the end of the day SM still own the account and can do what they want with it, that is why without warning
  14. Re: Is Rooney Finally Justifying His 96 Rating? Funny' date=' I said the same thing about the entire Newcastle squad on the last game of the season against Villa I would have done the same thing as Ferguson in all honesty, it might not be Rooney's ideal position but he tracks back when we loose possession, unlike Ronaldo. To have a winger playing that doesn't track back to help the defense against a side like Barcelona is just asking for more trouble and makes it harder on yourself.
