    Manchester United Away Match Thread

    We've not played badly I feel, just beaten by a sharper, better organised team. Mistakes have cost us. I like what I'm seeing though. It'll come together I reckon.

    Leonardo Ulloa - Gone to C.F. Pachuca

    Ulloa going, really does feel like a transition now. Funny innit how stuff catches you out. I'm feeling quite emotional tbh. Favourite armchair kinda thoughts perhaps. Never fully appreciated whilst it was there, sentiment kicks in when it goes. Best of luck Leo, you go with my warmest thanks.

    Leonardo Ulloa - Gone to C.F. Pachuca

    That is my Ulloa moment, and by god there have been a few which, in there own ways, have been equal or better. So why that one? I dunno really, something to do with starting to sincerely believe that we were special (as if I needed more) Leo stepped up, Leo breathed fire into even the nonbelievers.

    Thank you, Andy King.

    That's a good point. That league table will have to be weighted...

    Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    And I'd have said it was humour. Funny old world innit?

    What grinds my gears...

    I've got loads of reps. I'll sell you some if you like. Like a carbon offset exchange thing. Or bitcoin.

    You're being far too reasonable.

    Shinji Okazaki - the forgotten man

    Is that the ebay photo?

    Shinji Okazaki - the forgotten man

    I'd be inclined to keep BUT if we got a sensible offer that suited all parties then I'd let him go. I rate him highly but I'm not sure he'll have a role in our reshaped side, and we do need to get some players off the books. There are players I'd rather see gone but perhaps of greater priority is to reduce the head count/wages bill.

    Rachid Ghezzal signs.

    That may well be the case (and, not knowing, I can't comment) but if so, they certainly don't do badly in their sideline!

    What on the roads has annoyed you today?

    It is isn't it? Why is that? I don't understand quite why cyclist debates get quite so entrenched and vitriolic so quickly. I do thousand of miles a year by bike, for pleasure, and sure I've had a couple of incidents over the years but I find the vast majority of drivers to be considerate and aware. That said, I don't cycle in the UK now! The volume of traffic and state of the roads puts me right off!

    Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    Not per se. Depends on your reasons for being against it.

    The "do they mean us?" thread pt 2

    I'm pleased someone posted that Guardian piece ^^^ as I read it this morning but hadn't seen a link on here to it (before searching just now) Because I found it to be a decent review, nuanced and impressively knowledgeable - as if written by someone that knows us (or has taken the time to find out) and football. As a rule, I find the Guardian quite limited on football and tending to 'over prose' the subject without really addressing it.
