    Stag Ideas

    Benitez in an Everton jersey.
  2. High hopes anyway. He'll hopefully go out on loan this year.
  3. Definitely Di Maria. Depay, Sanchez, Bebe and Obertan with outside shouts even though Obertan only cost like £2m.
  4. Hard to choose. Ronaldo, Cantona, Schmeichel, Van der Sar, Solskjaer, Vidic, Evra, Irwin all come to mind. Probably Cantona.
  5. Every goal in that game was an absolute banger.
  6. I went to see it last night. It genuinely played like a comedy in parts. The acting was fucking horrific. EDIT: Old that is.

    Lenny’s Lasses

    Even Mike struggles to give that 7/10
  8. There has to be a few departures. Definitely one of Jones or Bailly now. Lingard and/or Pereira. Wouldn't be surprised to see Pogba sold either as it's increasingly unlikely he's going to sign a new contract.
  9. If signing a 27 year old World Cup winning, Champions League winning centre back who's been named in FIFA World XI's and UEFA teams of the year for £34m + add ons from Real Madrid is a gamble, then every transfer ever is a gamble.
  10. Anyone who thinks Varane isn't world class and not the perfect partner for Maguire is an absolute mentalist. Still cannot believe we've got him.
  11. Probably second most expensive. We finished second.
  12. Varane is done. Still can't believe that. Poor Ole. No excuses now.
  13. Lukaku doesn't fit our style of play at all. Cavani will do for another season until Greenwood is ready. Only City scored more than us last season. Up top doesn't worry me any more. A serious amount of talent there.
  14. £14.6m a season over 5 years. This isn't a display of any sort of spending power. If Varane comes in he will have the squad to challenge and will be expected to do so. Our team is excellent now. Just needs a centre back and a defensive midfielder to be perfect.
  15. I'm the same. although I'm a fat cunt so it makes sense.

    COVID-19

    Sister in law is a nurse in Belfast. Covid cases up 142%. She said they're starting to get overrun again and it's mostly younger people.
  17. Up from the Championship but they spent well over £100m last summer didn't they? He hasn't coached any "top" teams so to speak, but not sure how that can be used as a positive for him. I love the way his teams play. Joy to watch. It was also a joy to watch Brendan Rodgers at Swansea and Roberto Martinez at Wigan. He's an excellent manager with an excellent philosophy (the way he sticks to his principles is why the likes of Guardiola love him, as he does the exact same thing whether its working or not), but he's not one of the greats and certainly not the f
  18. I'm deadly serious. I'm not slating the man. I think he's class. I love his philosophy. At the same time I don't see him as one of the greats and certainly not anywhere near the finest example of a football genius. I haven't seen a plan B from him. I respect the ideology but the likes of him coming to Old Trafford last season with the mindset he did was a huge mistake. He'll have his big wins like 5-0 against WBA and 5-2 against Newcastle, but I can't call someone a genius who can also lose 4-1 to Leicester and Palace. The amount of goals they shipped to
  19. I really, really like Bielsa but I think this is all a bit much. He's been coaching for 40 years and won very, very little and pretty much nothing in Europe. I don't really understand people acting like he's one of the best coaches ever.
