    I would like to know what Scott thinks of LVG.

    Also a reactions thread would be great.

    I have still got a feeling Evra will play for one more year at United, got a funny feeling, but if this is his last year then he wikll go down rightfully as a United legend who just got everything about the club, My best memory of him is a tough one their is too many to think, but him just having this great personality around the place, resident DJ and all that, top pl;ayer, top man and he acted with so much class with regards to that racist bastard suarez he went up in my estimations!

    Obviously its dissapointing that his pal who has trusted him for the last 9 years as been sacked, but he should be more worried about his own future, I dont see him having a future under LVG, The BBC match of the day studio awaits Phil!

    Only SAF and Pep Guardiola believe in youth more than LVG, He believes in youth and plays attractive football makes him the perfect appointment

    Comparing Wilson to a goal scoring machine in RVN provides a lot of pressure on the lad, typical of the media that, I would sell Rooney and Hernandez and keep RVP and Welbeck and promote Wilson to the first team squad, LVG likes to play 433 so only uses 1 main striker so 3 will be enough next year

    NBI Scott’s commented on Twitter seem to indicate he would prefer Pep but LVG would be #2.

    Personally can’t stand tica taka and agree completely with Rummenegge that Pep is ruining Bayern and loosing the dressing room.

    So Pep is an option, but there are others above him for me. Still, Peps on the list, Mourinho has completely lost it for me. Wouldn’t have him anywhere near.

    Tommy, Agreed about not putting pressure on youngsters. But don’t you thing making him 3rd choice striker would be even more pressure?

    Can’t see RVP making it a season uninjured as well, we need 4-5 strikers for me. Maybe not next year, but year after.

    Mirror running poll on van Dykes proposed league 3.

    Proposal is to allow B-teams in English football with aim to increase # of english lads playing in EPL.
    Mirror poll suggests proposal is’nt too popular.

    But then, neither is van Dyke! :lol:

  5. Fletch™ says:

    Like to suggest we make a run at the FACup next year.

    Havn’t won it in dogs years and it is a route to CL as well.


  6. Tommy says:


    Its just LVG tactics are genrally 433 and he plays 1 central forward, so 3 forwards would be enough and ive said all season that I have felt RVP could have played but chose to milk injuries under Moyes, Under LVG id still a lot of money on him having a clean bill of health and finishing top scorer next season, just a hunch I have

    United manager? No thanks!

    FA fines Jose Mourinho £10,000 for comments about match officials after Chelsea’s defeat to Sunderland in April.

    Brighton Hove Albion 1 up
