...you might even say he did a pretty poor job of it.

A direct consequence of getting a 25 million Euro severance check.

I’d be actively trying to get sacked too if I had a contract like that.

Does Jose even need 25 millions Euros at this point? Didn’t he get payed enough at Chelsea and Real Madrid?

i think the joy Oli brought back to ManU tells it all… to be honest Jose is still my fav coach and i wouldn’t turn against him, but i cant support him at this moment with all the negativity he brought into ManU this season…
chairmen must understand that Jose is a two season manger, max 3 - with any club, first he explore the new club he is at, 2nd he bring trophies, and third could go south easily, i think he just cant maintain ...

anyways, back to KDB’s goal, i really dont get how nobody sees (commented on..) De-Bryune goal as perfect as i see it, it is a goal which only Cantona could have scored. (maybe better)

(00:36) Unbelievable!

It’s just a cross that was overshot and went in.

I thought his goal in the League Cup last week was a lot better.

Yeah it a great goal, isn’t he always that prefect when targeting the goal millimeters away from the woodwork. i mean its nuthing new ....
but No Tim,
look at how he followed the ball with eyes until he was sure it went where he wanted it to go, and his body language as he draw back knowing it hits exactly where he wanted (he delebrity fooled everyone), plus he did before at Wolfsberg from the left side if you are following him good thru the years.
there have been no player before with such perfect passes and chips, not Even Zidane was not that good, yah maybe he has no great dribbling techniques or speed, but its enough that he uses both legs with the same quality,sometime (early) i couldnt figure if he a right footed or a lefty!!

and btw he was my Avatar here at the WC time, you were absent (i know) but the Belgium team was my fav (mostly bc of him) i think he has taken Ronaldo’s place in my heart and became my 2nd fav player Laughing

He made goals like that back when he was playing in Belgium as well. He even specifically calls them “assist-shots”. They’re crosses that are meant as assists, but he hits them a tad harder on the off chance that they go in.

Given where he was, where the keeper was, and how many City players were in the box, there’s no doubt that this was anything other than an “assist-shot”.



I agree that he’s a great player, though. One of the absolute best in the world. Grin

With a most recent same-division match concluding in a 10-0, is there any amusement still to be had with this unbelievably uneven and crooked act?

My Lawgiver is whispering a solution.

After ManC v Watford match (3-0); Sterling’s hatric, Pep said that he (Raheem) didn’t play good; could do better; lost the ball a lot, haven’t maintained his defending chores…  ...What a guy, What aaa guy!
