  1. I should hate this but I actually really like it. Classic pop punk/emo chord progression in the chorus.
  2. Good read for one of the best journos on tactics out there if any of you subscribe to The Athletic or know a way of getting in behind the paywall: https://theathletic.com/2895026/2021/10/18/why-ronaldo-is-giving-solskjaer-a-huge-tactical-problem/
  3. 5 hours later and I'm still fairly triggered by Davey Jones's post... What the actual fuck?
  4. There's a special place in hell for people like you.
  5. Good win for us yesterday, surprised Everton were so high in the table before yesterday, they were really poor. I know they are missing their two main attackers but this is basically the same team that could have easily won at Old Trafford the other week and with our overall record at Goodison I feared the worst.
  6. Gary Neville: "I wouldn't want to be a defender in a team where Sancho, Greenwood, Pogba, Ronaldo and Fernandes are playing at the same time. There's reason Neville, Butt, O'Shea, Cleverley got a game over the years...the team is unbalanced." Hard to disagree with that.
  7. I actually watched the full 90 mins yesterday and while Maguire made the noticeable individual errors, the whole team was basically a carcrash. Sancho looks completely lost and Ronaldo offered absolutely nothing, couldn't even stay onside for that cross from Rashford where he was looking across the line. I honestly think Cavani would be a better option than Ronaldo at the moment, Greenwood, Cavani and Rashford would be far more dynamic but doubt Ole has the minerals.
  8. I'm not saying Ronaldo doesn't have natural ability, Messi is just another level and is better technically - I struggle to see how anyone can say otherwise. Edge of your seat is debatable, basically all of Ronaldo's goals since rejoining Man United have been tap ins and goalkeeping errors. Sure you have to be in the right place at the right time but noone was ever on the edge of their seat watching Inzaghi which is basically what he is now. Messi turned it on against Man City in the CL and scored a great goal against top opposition when it really mattered. Ronaldo isn't carrying Portugal either, their team is littered with talent - great players and cover in basically every position. Either way, agree to disagree. Just wanted to state my opinion on the matter as per usual.
  9. Yes but that Man United side grew into a great side along with Ronaldo, he was surrounded by amazing players in his initial peak at Man United - it wasn't like it was just Ronaldo winning them games and trophies on his own. I think you're thinking too deeply with this, strip it all back - who is the better football player out of the two? who has the most natural ability? who is the most exciting to watch and keeps you on the edge of your seat? I don't give a fuck about social media, global brand and sponsorships personally. Messi has won more trophies (and has also won the equivalent of the Euros with Argentina in the Copa America) he has more assists than Ronaldo in less games, Ronaldo beats him in goals but is 2 years older and Messi has a better goals to game ratio - I'm not much of a statto but even if you want to go down that route, Messi is still clear overall. Both great players, the best of all time - Messi just clear for me.
  10. Football is more than stats but if you're looking at club goals, Ronaldo has just 7 more more Messi and has played 88 more games. I'd rather have a player in my team who can do what Messi does than Ronaldo, especially the new Ronaldo - he is literally just a poacher these days. Not sure what you mean by a harder route? Man United, Real Madrid and Juventus are hardly minnows and it's not like Barca were incredible the whole time he was there yet he still kept performing despite the team getting worse and worse year on year.
  11. Messi is 100% the better overall player, his all around game is still superb and whereas Ronaldo has reinvented his game to be a fox in the box that offers little else which will obviously lead to more goals, Messi has dropped deeper to become more of a playmaker that still gets a hell of a lot more goals and assists than basically any other player. Ignore the annoying tweet above but the video shows what he can and is still doing, not like Uruguay are mugs either... Messi is the best ever, Ronaldo second, Maradona third.
  12. I count my blessings every single day.
  13. Newcastle win the Prem before Man United do again? what you think?
