Good goal kid, hope he gets some chances this year, impressive preseason
29 in a few days? 40 odd million quid?
This pass and the goal we scored 30 seconds later is one of the most crazy things that I have ever seen on a football pitch
Boo wish this volley from a corner went in
Well that is the end of a very successful preseason. Last year the tour in China was a disaster (games called off etc) but this year was great
Super Cup (basically a friendly I suppose, we will lose) up next then the new season gets started
Still think we lack a bit of talent and that the ****ing Griezmann transfer mess probably killed our transfer plans.
But **** it, new season starts today, can't wait.
I got to 6 games last year, doubt I make it to any this time :/
Decent way to get things started. I didn't like the signing, but Matic has had a strong debut
That went well.
Lukaku is going to dominate the smaller teams, I still have have concerns about games against better sides, especially in the champions league.
Matic was awesome, hope im very wrong about him.
Lindelof didn't even manage to get on the bench... bit concerning
for what it's worth, Lukaku also scored a tap-in vs. real in the Super Cup. granted, that goal was gift-wrapped by Keylor Navas, but Lukaku was in the right spot at the right time.
Oh dear. 29 and really quite ****. One of the strangest signings that I can remember
This is why I love Phil Jones
Fergie was convinced he would be an all time great. But his career has been utterly devastated by injuries, very sad
not a bad backup striker.
Martial and Rashford have started the season really well. Hope they don't lose out as a result
I will take that. Someone like Celtic would have been better than Moscow though
yeah, why not complain about the easiest CL group this year lol
lol we need all the help we can get. My issue with Moscow is how much mid week traveling is involved
Another win, still haven't conceded a goal. Jones has stayed healthy for once and has been a rock at the back alongside Bailly.
at 0-0 we missed a pen but Schmeichel was off his line and it should have been retaken. Thankfully it didn't matter. We would have drawn that 0-0 last year
I miss Fergie
Ousmane Dembele: Barcelona complete £135.5m deal for Dortmund forward http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41075084
That seems.. a lot
Just passing through to say that we (Vancouver Whitecaps) have the best 16 year old in the world playing for us. I suspect he'll be playing in a couple years for your side, UK Dolfan. He is Marcus Rashford v.2 and his name is Alphonso Davies. Just a heads up.
Time for some international games. NI have never qualified for a world cup in my lifetime, but we have a great shot this time.
The only game we have actually lost so far was away to Germany!
We play San Marino away tonight, which should be absolutely fine. Then we have a huge game in Belfast on Monday against the Czechs...
Never heard of him but will keep an eye out for him in the future. Hope he is better than the last 16 year old MLS Superstar though!
Adu had a trial with United at the very height of his hype, but Fergie (wisely) decided that he didn't rate him. I recall being quite sad about it at the time
It's true that for every for every Rashford, Pulisic, Mbappe, etc., there are 100 kids who go from "next great player" to "wash out", sadly. That's why us Vancouver fans really don't want the world to know about Davies (or Fonz, as we call him) - just want to be cautious with him. Sadly, the Gold Cup changed all that (he won Golden Boot, Best Young Player and Best XI awards).
Incidentally, Man U scouts have been lurking around our team since last year, asking about him. Right now, even though his skills are quite good, and his vision/knowledge of the game are decent (for a 16 year old), what sets him apart is his pace, strength and poise for a gangly 16 year old. I've never seen anything quite like it. When he was 15 and playing his first game with us, he charged up the right flank with the ball, ran around the Seattle Sounders left back - a very good, fast left back who was all over him and had the angle on him - cut it back (using outside left foot) at the touch line at full pace and was driving towards the net, when the left back had to grab him and draw the PK. I've never seen anyone do that, let alone a 15 year old. Anyhow, like I said, I don't want to jinx him, but he is definitely someone to look out for.
0-0 at half time in a game we must win. Stunned we didnt manage to score in the first half.
****ed if we dont win, would be sickening to do so well in much harder games and drop points in an easy game like this
Well thank **** for that
Winning 2-0 now. Left it late but job done. Thank god.
15 mins left
Need to go home to NI now and send the Czechs packing on Monday
Win and you're in. Good luck.
Thanks Im bricking it lol. Hopefully we get the win, we tend to be much better at home
Have been to some home games, would love to go to an away game someday
Flights, hotels etc just cost so much.
Table looks great:
Germany are the only team that have managed to score against us so far
Playoffs could still be a nightmare, but for once we have a shot
Sure as hell isnt Bravo....
What is better than being one one goal up in a must win game? Being two up.
That Rashford kid is pretty good...
Read that he also got an assist on their first
Woop! We have only conceded 2 goals in 8 games and that was against Germany
Now back to the Premier league...
Not bad for a tiny little country
Nice 4-1 win in Moscow tonight. Long trip home before a premier league game on saturday! You think NFL London games are bad with a week off afterwards!
Lukaku just wont stop scoring (though Morata has also been excellent)
So, decision on Ancelotti coming today
gone now. who are you going to put in charge?
Willy Sagnol will be Interim coach. For next summer, i think the decision will be between Klopp, Tuchel and Nagelsmann.
I really like Mata
EH lost to Germany as expected. I wrote this game off a year ago, big game up next
congrats on the playoffs though. Hope you make it through
