Weekly Football Thread: City Getting Their Pants Pulled Down, The Second Generation


#1

Some big changes happening at United apparently

Restructuring under way. New club secretary and it looks like we will be getting a director of football.

Jose will either be pleased he doesn’t have to deal with ed or feel undermined and have a breakdown

Probably both tbf


#2

FOOTBALL’S BACK


#3

Any decent games? I’ve not looked. Seasons over isn’t it?


#4

Cardiff City v Burton Albion tomorrow afternoon mate, a real modern classic as fixtures go.


#5

Big game

Just looked at the fixtures. United are gonna be the only team in the top 4 to win. Seasons back on


#6

It’s the @aggpass - @Severed799 derby. Extra mods will be brought in from neighbouring forums in a desperate attempt to keep things civil in here


#7

Man Utd!


#8

I’ll even it up

city have sold out the etihad for the Liverpool game. Well done them


#9

Excellent. Missed the Man Utd corporate restructuring chat over the international break.


#10

Can United throw their game this weekend so City don’t win the league against them?

(Suspect City will lose at Goodison, but hypothetically).


#11

be funny if both united and city lose


#12

leeds v Bolton tomorrow. stopped caring about football again tbh :man_shrugging:


#13

I’m really looking forward to Palace v Liverpool on Saturday, which is bad sign as when I do look forward to games we lose badly.

I renewed my season ticket this week, £480 for the season, or around £25 a game. Also picked up a ticket for Watford away in a few weeks.

Sounds like Pep and Isco have been getting pretty close.

Can’t see where he’d fit, but it was only about a year ago we were saying he’d overtaken Ronaldo as the world’s second best player. Must’ve fell off a cliff since.

Could only imagine Silva might have to return to Spain permanently, or a switch in formation.

From what i hear a transfer ban’s pretty probable so it may not happen.


#15

Villa v Hull on TV Saturday.

The Ahmed Elmohamady derby


#16


#17

New 18-25 year old cheaper season ticket price in the Stretford End. Positive step.


#18

Bit like marketing alcopops to youngsters tho innit. Morally questionable


#19

Football on the whole is having trouble (comparatively with previous generations) attracting/holding that demographic. They’re all sat on the ps4 talking about fidget spinners or whatever.


#20

Yeah definitely, eSports overtaking real sports is a genuine thing
