Guys, I’m not in a great way… my world kind of collapsed on Sunday regarding my ability to predict football.
Last week I made such a mistake, I said Liverpool could beat United 7-0, it was only 5-0, I got it so wrong, a whole two goals.
I apologise, back to the drawing board for me. Mind you, Liverpool took their foot off the pedal after the fifth… could have been seven.
By the time this goes to print poor old Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – bless him – could have been sacked? If he hasn’t, it’ll be a strange one.
The least the board should do is end the fella’s misery. As y’all know I really like him, he’s a loveable chap and was a great footballer, but he’s a swak coach.
How can they possibly continue with him? You could add Kylian Mbappe and Neymar to United’s frontline and they’d still be an average side.
How come we can all see the problem, but the board (and Sir Alex Ferguson) don’t address it? Scott McTominay and Fred, or the “McFred” double pivot as its been called, isn’t fit for the Championship, let alone the biggest club in the best league in the world.
Not only are they failing to support and supply the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood, more frighteningly, they are responsible for exposing an already flat-footed backline.
Mo Salah has never scored an easier hattrick! It ain’t science, it’s there on the pitch to be seen by all week-in-week-out?
Anyway, not sure if you saw the camera focusing in on Kenny Dalglish after the fifth? I think he summed the day up quite nicely as his smiling lips could be easily read: “foookin ‘ell”…
Can you imagine what it must be like for the 1000s of tourists (from Cape Town as well) who spend so much money organising a trip of a lifetime to Old Trafford to watch United and get to witness that? Daaaamn.
And as for Paul Scholes, one of the best midfielders I ever watched turning into a boring, personality-less, dumbass pundit.
Let’s hope this historic mauling shuts his annoying little mouth up once and for all after last week’s “Chelsea have the worst defence out of the top four” comment.
Can someone just tell him to look at the GOALS AGAINST column on the table?
And does the depressing [email protected]@@@@ not watch his own team’s donkey-ass centrebacks? This was an historic defeat and re-emphasized who’s who in the zoo.
There’s no doubt at this stage that the league will be won by one of three sides… Chelsea (for me) are fortunate to be top and don’t deserve it, but have a great squad and an incredible coach who has the ability to motivate them to win.
Despite the 7-0 drubbing of Norwich, the team hasn’t been playing well, but should definitely be one of the top three in May.
Ahead of Chelsea sit Liverpool and Manchester City, it just looks and feels like they have that little extra regarding team dynamic and quality. I know that will sound strange given the Blues European status, but for me, too many average performances. The days of the old cliche “Champions grind out results and win even when they’re playing badly” is from a bygone era. Today, it’s the relentless top quality sides who win the league.
Anyway, onto upcoming fixtures and a couple of tough ones for the ‘Red Devils’ as they travel to Tottenham on Saturday, before the Manchester derby the following week.
I’ll be in England next Tuesday, hope to bring some on-the-ground news for ya’ll…
Get vaxxed my good people, stay safe, chat next week.
P.S Ronaldomania fanboys have gone [email protected] quiet.
