    AWB is doing just fine for his first season here JM. He’s even added a bit to his game going forwards recently. He’ll be great next season I think. He must be shattered as he’s played almost every game for us.
    Hopefully the understanding of Shaw, Maguire and AWB will be really good next season and they hit the ground running ahead of De Gea.

    @happy – Shaw didn’t look too hot when he ‘chased’ that Derby lad for 40 yards before deciding it was a good idea to foul him on the edge of our box, and pick up a yellow card!. He also allowed a couple of dangerous crosses to come into our box from his side of the pitch early in the game.
    It shouldn’t have taken the emergence of Brandon Williams to convince him to take his head out of the fridge for a change and up his game, that should be a given when you’re on close to 200k per week!
    That’s the problem, too many fuckers at OT living on easy street with very few repercussions.

    @killy – A potential sale of Pogba AND Martial would pay for Kane, should these rumours be true. Either way I don’t see it happening myself, but I do see him leaving Spurs to win trophies sooner rather than later, he’d be crazy not to.

    Ay ay Blacky mate,i was to post about Shaws lazy shortcomings in tracking back.
    He is a lazy lard fucker but he is another story going forward.
    As i have said many times before,i would only use him as a wingback.
    But pay him 200k/week and play him as a wingback 4-5 times a season is not value for money.

    Time to adjust the players salaries. You will get paid your maximum salaries when your making minutes in the first team and not when you dance in a wedding in Dubai.

    Rooney: “I was gutted when he (Ronaldo) left. I went in to see Alex Ferguson. I said to him, ‘What’s going on? We’ve sold Tevez, we’ve sold Ronaldo, who’s coming in?’ No disrespect, but we had bought Smalling not knowing whether [he was] good enough.”

    This everton performance is classic of so many other teams who’ve raised their game for United then been shit afterwards

    Tahith Chong just signed up for another 3 years. Hopefully Angel Gomes will be next.
    Both are in the awkward situation of being too good for the reserves but not good enough for the first team.
    Maybe one or both could be loaned to Aston Villa next season if it helps get a deal for Jack Grealish over the line 😉

    I’m glad we’ve agreed a new deal with Chong. I still think there’s a very good player in there. More importantly though, we need to get Bellingham. This lad is as exciting a 16 year old I’ve seen since Rooney. Fingers crossed because this is a big one.

    @jm, it’s crazy that at just 16 Bellingham is holding his own in the very physical Championship. As I’ve said before sign him this summer and loan back for next season to allow him to continue developing

    As long as none of geriatrics get new contracts.

    Mata has looked a new player next to Fernandes

    JM – ha ha, I know. Amaze myself at times. I’ll be brought shatteringly back down to earth when we lose 3-1 to spurs on Sunday! 😂😩

    Mata played well against Club Brugge because everyone just stood off him. He can still pick a pass and pockets of space but struggles as soon as someone puts pressure on him…and by someone I mean anyone older than 4.

    @homerjay. I strongly doubt Chong will make it at the top level. He may still be young but his reliance on speed is palpable and all I’ve seen from him is bad decision making and bad execution when crossing and shooting. He wins a lot of free kicks and pens because he’s a very good dribbler. Otherwise, technically limited in my view. His ridiculous hair also makes me wonder how he can see the pitch properly – no serious footballer would be happy to have all that hair waving around his face while trying to make split second decisions – I am sure it affects his peripheral vision.

    As for Bellingham – sign him up! He’s an absolute maestro in a high tempo, physical Championship and is only 16. No brainer that.

    @hatters, 100% agree. In the old days I’m sure Keano would have held Chong down while one of the other lads shaved his head. Good times!

    Watched Chong many times in the youth and U23s hatters and his problem is that he’s actually half a yard short of pace. Means his strength is not going passed defenders, has to rely more on his passing ability. He’s actually a very intelligent, unselfish player. Not sure he’ll make it either, but I’m also not sure he can be judged from a handful of games with a bunch of players whose strength can’t be measured by what lies between their ears.

    About Bellingham at Carrington, might we be doing the right thing and trying to get some of our transfer business done before the summer? If the Euros go ahead some players valuations could shoot up, I think a lot of clubs will try to get business done ahead of time this season. Could be the most boring transfer deadline day ever.
