And also just to add onto what Prowler has said, it's no indication of their work ethic, attitude, commitment or an over-belief in their ability.


Just because someone buys something doesn't mean they think they've made it.

Sure but I really don't think that's what happened. AK wanted Steele to wait until the end of the season for his op saying that the team needed him. Steele said that he wanted it right away, because he felt his career was more important to him.


Will you are spot on, I'm not a fan of Karanka, He is very inexperienced as a manager and doesn't seem to be able to handle the players that well. His man management is confrontational, to say the least. I don't think he should be looking to make wholesale changes at the end of the season, because we can't afford to keep offloading players for nothing, and getting new ones in, with the same flaws. I'm not keen on having half a team made up of other teams youth players, and I don't believe FFP will allow us to buy the players that AK needs to work in his (Mourinho's old) system.


I would be very sad if we lost Carayol, Emnes, Adomah and Kamara at the end of the season.


Id buy Kamara a one-way plane ticket back to the states given the chance tbh

    • I can't see anything in the laws that says that. It does say that an injured goalkeeper doesn't have to leave the field of play to receive treatment, and that in itself prevents play from restarting until the keeper has received treatment, but it doesn't say anything specific about goalkeeper injuries stopping play. The ref has to stop play if they deem a player to be seriously injured, but I wouldn't class stepping on someone's heel as a serious injury. Which I think is reinforced by the fact De Gea was up and about walking within a minute. It also say the ref "allows play to continue until the ball is out of play if a player is only slightly injured" and if Fred had stepped on any other Man United player, I definitely think that would be deemed only a slight injury and waved on.
    • Btw. does anyone know if the club do half-season online match tickets, like they do with normal season tickets? I vowed never to buy a match as long as Warnock was manager, but I might change my stance now, although I rarely get to see entire games due to other commitments.
    • Yeah I get that. It's probably the best time to not have midweek games with Fry and Payero getting back and the players learn the new routines and build up more fitness. But that still doesn't change the fact, that I want games.
    • If you follow the rule book it was the refs fault. The rules specifically say that the goalkeeper has to be fully functional at all time for the game to be continued. It was Arsenals luck that the ref didn't see he was down injured and blew his whistle before the ball had gone in. It's the refs responsibility to stop play as soon as the keeper isn't functional. That is what makes it controversial. If a keeper is hurt while trying to stop the ball from going into the net ie. bangs his head against the post and the ball goes in then it's obviously a goal. But if the keeper is down hurt before the 2nd 3rd or whatever touch then the ref has to stop play. 
    • Have a great time, that man. Hope the boys make you proud ,Enjoy the Legends Lounge & the party. .........  Travelling is a complete pain these days. Im off to Tenerife next week via Stansted so i need locator forms going into Spain, PCRS test & locator forms  coming back to the UK & again a locator form coming back to Ireland. All worth it though........... I love the way people on Forums ask "Does anyone know a bar in "wherever" where i can watch the match. In other words- I am in "wherever" & i want everyone to know it,  BTW Does anyone know a Bar in Costa Adeje where i can watch Sky Sports?!
