    Hey no disrespect to Wales chief, can never hate a team wae King Ramsey in it, despite Bales' best efforts. Just compared to every eligible team I think we're most likely to beat yous plus the banter in here will be a laugh

    Oh aye, I was only jesting :P I'm under no illusions that we're very much underdogs, even compared to some of the non-seeded teams! Gonna be very interesting to see what 3 teams come through the play offs in the end! Let's just hope we both make it!

    People may have seen in the last few days tha tBenjamin Mendy has been charged with 2 more counts of rape and sexual assault.

    Several French media outlets are reporting on this, however who's face have they plastered with the articles? Fucking Edouard Mendy. Absolute disgrace.

    Re: General Football Discussion

    Brilliant result for us last night. We changed the way we play slightly from when Ole was in charge and made some personnel changes and it worked. Carrick got everything right.
    Instead of playing a pressing game we opted for a more solid, hard to beat performance in our own half and then played on the counter attack to devestating effect, especially once we brought on Fernandes and Rashford. Very happy that Sancho got his goal, hopefully that will enable him to kick on going forward, this was his best United performance to date. De Gea was once again incredible in goal. Shows that he's not just having a lucky streak as he's been performing to this level consistently since the season began now and he's well ahead of Henderson in the pecking order. Ronaldo put in another brillinat performance and got another goal. He's just incredible. I liked that he switched between playing centrally and on the left of our attack throughout the game, that's where he's at his best. Wan Bissaka looked much better last night and Telles also put in a great performance. I think it's time he got a run int he team ahead of Shaw now, who has been less than great this season.
    Man of the match: Fred. He gets a lot of criticism but he was great last night. Probably means he's due a few stinkers now as that seems to be how it goes with him.
    My biggest gripe of the night was Anthony Martial's performance. He was atrocious. He just doesn't look up for it, doesn't seem bothered, doesn't seem interested, nothing. Carrick made a big call giving him a start here and he failed to take it. I will be shocked if he's not sold in the summer, maybe even in January.

    We're somehow qualifying for the knockout stages top of the group, which is unbelievable. We have Ronaldo soley to thank for that after his heroics in previous games. Pressure is off for the final game of the group though so hopefully we'll see more squad rotation there.

    Chelsea absolutely battered Juve. It was quite something to see them sweep aside a team of Juve's calibre so effortlessly. I know that Juve aren't the team they were in previous seasons and they're having a difficult season being way down in 8th in the Serie A table. The way Chelsea are playing you'd feel your money was safe placing a bet on them to win all trophies this season. I've been incredibly impressed by them and they're showing no signs of relenting.

    Sorry Tommy, but I hope we qualify with the football equivalent of Seth hitting Dean with the chair:

    A really dodgy VAR penalty or a clearly offside winner

    Re: General Football Discussion

    Lionel Messi is the 'strong favorite' to win the Ballon d'Or this evening.

    Personally I think Robert Lewandowski should win it. Messi has had a decent year and of course won his first internaitonal trophy with Argentina, which is a big achievment, no doubt. But while he has had a good second half of the season with Barca, he's gone way off the boil as PSG and seems to be struggling to fit in.

    Lewandowski on the othe rhand has been the most prolific goalscorer for a few seasons now and has scored an incredible 73 goals in 60 games for Byern and he's showing no signs of slowing down either. He already has 25 goals in 20 games this season so he's on course to top last season's tally.
    He's already been acknowledged by UEFA and FIFA by winning their best player awards.

    Messi will undoubtedly get it.

    Ballon D'or is a farce end of.

    Someone put a quote out that Messi & Ronaldo only need to play a handful of games to win the award haha!

    Hilarious that even Messi said in his speech that he didn't deserve it and that Lewandowski should have won. Even he's acknowledging how ridiculous the vote is, it's a joke. There's just no way that Messi should have won this year. Top 3 for sure as he has achieved something big at national level, but he absolutely shouldn't have won.

    They literally created a ‘best striker’ award just to try and give Lewandowski something they didn’t even try and hide it.
