Same as the transfer one, except for throughout the season! Any domestic league discussion welcome!

 

First thing I'd like to bring up- has anyone seen Utds lineup for tonight?!

 

De Gea, Valencia, Vidic, Carrick, Evra, Cleverley, Scholes, Kagawa, Nani, Rooney, Welbeck

 

Thats mental. Two recognised defenders selected. I really can't see them putting up much of a fight for the title with selections like this, even with RVP coming in.

To be fair they have four centre backs injured, I assume Rafael is currently injured as well. It is worrying how often they seem to end up in these defensive crises though, Valencia must have played at right back at least five times this year.

You don't need to defend if you always in possession of the ball though - a lesson we could do with learning! :)

But you still need a solid and settled defence to go anywhere. I cant think of a single team that didnt have one yet was able to win a league title. In any division in the world!

It was tongue in cheek, but in fairness Carrick isnt a bad footballing Centre half and Valencia has played wingback on a number of occasions.

 

If the full team works hard to close down the space which United do they can get away with it, although I do agree not for a whole season!

It's a good game. Evertons movement is excellent, Felliani and Pienaar are really impressive in their roles behind the striker.

Felliani could be a big player in the top six of any english side he is very good at what he does

    • Yes it does. Seems like the Belgian league pulled the trigger too soon because they have been summoned into a meeting with uefa after uefa said they would ban clubs for next season if the leagues were cancelled. 
    • Hi everyone and I hope all are doing as well as can be under the circumstances? Still no sign of this nightmare abating for a while yet. Plenty of examples of people still not understanding the social distancing rules or maybe defying the advise or instruction. Plenty of conspiracy theories going around and certainly G5 towers being damaged because of it. Where will it end I wonder as I would not be surprised to see further examples of social unrest down the line. Are any of you feeling the brunt of the reality of COVID 19 or know of friends, family that are going through it, if so hopes of a pull through are sent to you? So much time on our hands now, use it well and take good care of yourselves. 
    • Wonder who Sky sports would employ to slate boro if Keith Andrews goes...🤔
    • As is typical of the FAI Robbie Keane signed a 4 year deal at the time that McCarthy signed a 2 year deal so he still has a contract. However it is understood that Stephen Kenny does not want him in the senior set up. Kenny wishes to work with Keith Andrews as his assistant and Damien Duff as coach.
    • Hello everyone, Hope you are all well, I see ROI have bought forward  theyu21 boss appointment as boss of senior teams to replace Mick McCarthy. Does anyone know if that means Robbie Keane also left? Cant find anything other than FA thanking Mick and his staff for they work.
