Saturday

Saturday
Euros are over and Portugal, who finished 3rd in their group won it. Fergie, you just can’t get rid of him, was on hand to congratulate Ronaldo and Nani, wonder what he said to Evra and Martial?
Last week the manumirror had united’s £100M bid for Pogba as a statement of intent. Surely it should’ve been a double page spread on how they’re continuing to ruin football. Andy Dunn said that Mourinho wouldn’t be signing the likes of Falcau. Funny that as it was Maureen who signed him for Chelsea from the rags.
So it looks like there’ll be no let up this season.
Another blank Saturday today whilst everyone else are playing friendlies, so we’ll be a bit rusty for the Bayern friendly on Wednesday. No news of a GMex do this year and nothing planned for the 30th July. Boring

  1. Is it just me, or has Ronaldo’s off field antics during the Final, already been rewritten?

    At the time, I watched him fail to shake off an injury, and then leave the field in tears. In fact, I’m fairly certain that he didn't reappear until the last couple of minutes, when suddenly emerging as a vocal cheerleader, whilst ironically screaming at one of his injured teammates to play through the pain barrier.
    Also, he was the only player who wasn’t involved when the Manager was publicly “trampolined”

    Funny because I’m now reading that his off-pitch public support was a contributory factor in Portugal’s overall success.
    Also, as Ronaldo has succeeded at both Champions League and International level, that seems to have silenced the Messi supporters.
    Does that mean that Pepe is better than Messi, or Jerome Boateng is better than Johann Cruyff?
    Anyone would think that the media have a secret agenda to deliberately appeal to United’s huge Ronaldo-loving fanbase.

    1. You may be onto something there mate. Personally and I know I'm in the minority, I can't stand Ronaldo. Every time he takes his shirt off, flexes his muscles and displays his waxed chest I feel like throwing up, preferably over him

  2. Following on from Neil's comment, the media have been raving about Bill Bailey's performance against recently promoted from the 3rd division, Wigan.

  3. And the Sundays gave GK Sam Johnstone 6/10 for the first half and 6/10 for the second (they marked each half separately, as the rags changed most of the side at HT)...So Johnstone must have had a blinder, as he totalled 12/10. Surely promotion to the 1st XI is now guaranteed?

  4. Is he English? If so, Hart will be out within twelve months!

  5. United will pay anything for Pogba,after all they are desperate.I can recall Joe being written off once before, he can do better and will have to under "Pep".I don't recall any of Pellegrini's squad doing well after a confidence draining season. Yes Neil a charm offensive indeed and a very disarming one.

  6. Last night's friendly barely got a mention in the press, we'll how could it have done. There were no spare column inches left after they'd told us what Maureen had eaten that day, what time he'd been to the toilet, what kind of stools he'd passed, how superior those stools were to any that Pep had produced and how many home grown stools he'd brought through in his career.

  7. Am I becoming over sensitive? Or did anyone else notice the number of times it was mentioned on BT that Pep was 'not that popular' at Bayern Munich, was 'respected but not loved', seen as only a partial success and even that Ancilotti was already perceived to be more 'human' by the German press.

    1. Yep - oversensitive. All about the honeymoon period (see Morinho, Conte and in fairness, Pep at City). New bosses get that everywhere and they do down the predecessor to help with this. And frankly Pep was good at Bayern but didn't achieve what his predecessor did. I'd be happy if he mirrored his achievements at Bayern for us and screw winning the CL.

    2. It's a good point you make, Geoff. You have reminded me of how Roberto Mancini was portrayed once Pellegrini had been appointed.
