And now with the Diva from Portugal running the show, it's even worse.

I think so too. He will improve but will most likely never justify his fee.

I think the larger question is Mou; has he lost it? 3 losses in a row is obviously not good, and the losses feel odd...to lose like that to Watford/Mazzarri?

Pogba may or may not be a bust, but Fellaini....

Best line of the day:
21' 2T S. Lichtsteiner (JUVENTUS); 23' 2T M. Icardi (INTER); 33' 2T I. Perisic (INTER).

Mou (in his "subtle way") naming 3 culprits for the loss to Watford:
1) The referees ("I do not control them.").
2) "Lady Luck" ("I do not control her.").
3) His own players (implied: "I do not control their inadequacies.")

I do not think this will end well....

Somewhere around 2002 was the last time Mou lost and it wasn't the referees fault. some people have a funny definition of the term "class".

It is not the route i would have chosen ether .)
And no it does not look good, they need to start winning again but more importantly they need to start looking like a team, its like none has a clue of what the other is going to do and its been quite a while all rdy. Just poor play, even the simplest one twos are non existent.

On a more individual note I think Rooney may have made 1 or 2 good things over 90 x 5 minutes .) why on earth is he starting every game??? He feels so incredibly poor.

He sure is looking a lot like the emperor with no clothes over the last 5 years.

It's baffling to see him so indecisive on his starting 11, the scheme, the roles, etc. He really needs to drop Rooney and Fellaini, and get more pace on the field. Maybe more Rashford?

And he definitely needs to shut up about his players. He could get away with that bs with a guy like Materazzi at Inter, but I don't think that tactic plays well with ManU's stars.

The times have changed. Managers with a clear vision and a concept have taken over - like Pep or Klopp.

Imo, the team would benefit from having a pressing-resistant experienced midfielder who can pass, and who can lead. I wonder what Schweinsteiger is donig these days

Sometimes yellow cards are sign of unfair play, not ref bias and 2 of them happened after the 1:2 and 87 minutes of abysmally bad play...

Hahaha yeah but i was so happy they were finally playing some football!! And Z was actually getting involved in the game when rooney couldn't hogg the ball being on the bench n all. It was a moment of joy i couldn't help myself as seen.

The big man himself looked like he was enjoying the game tonight too.

Yes, MU looked better without Rooney. At least Pogba finally scored a goal too. Still, this was this year's Leicester....

In any case, you really need to fix your man-bun hair, next time!

How many more matches does Conte have at Chelsea??? It could be 0.

Nah u think? I dont particularly like chelsea but if i were in charge id let him stay for a long time, I'm pretty confident he will come good but it will take some time. He also is not used to coaching a team without great defenders so he has his work cut out for him. David L signing was weird..

Klopp took some time to get going. They look pretty damn great now tbh. We shall c, exciting season it will be. Hopefully city will start to loose a few points here n there too.

Gazzetta jersey survey

This survey of the "greatest jerseys of all time" is so odd.
I would never have expected these results.

#5 should clearly be #1.
Not having Inter Milan 2009-10 #2 is a crime!
#8 and #9?


1. Boca Juniors 1981


2. Sampdoria 1990-91


3. Brasil 1970


4. Netherlands 1974


5. Italia 1982


6. Real Madrid 1960
