The unpopular football opinion thread
« on: Tuesday 30 July 2013, 11:38:30 pm »
TDC is happy to get us started here:

Bale's been much better since AVB told him to not bother tracking back. I'm serious btw. I remember Vertoghnen getting raped again and again at City I think. 2 players all the time. Most of the time it worked a treat.

R. Madrid do the same with Cronaldo. They won't work in the same team like.

Titus Bramble was a very good defender for the majority of his career here.

I agree with him completely, Ronaldo and Bale won't work.

Especially when you consider both of Madrid's fullbacks are ridiculously attacking and very poor defensively.

Having two people starting from a wide position and floating about not contributing anything defensively would be a disaster.

Which is why i don't understand the move it doesn't make any sense from a balance point of view and would f*ck up the system Ancelotti is trying to build.

Shola was at one point a premier league quality striker and is still capable of playing a role in our squad now. He also dosn't deserve the abuse he gets, as one of the main reasons he is so slow and immobile now is because he played through a serious hip injury for the sake of the club and after all he dosn't pick himself.

would real madrid consider using ronaldo in a withdrawn no.9 like messi ? (i'm sure ronaldo played through the middle sometimes at man utd)
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

That's actually quite trendy now, despite being completely wrong.

Perhaps but i'm not sure it suits him all that well, Ronaldo needs a lot more space to thrive in than Messi does and on top of that it would restrict the likes of Ozil as he would be taking up the space he would usually vacate.

Good luck to Ancelotti if they get Bale anyway, to me that is just one massive tactical clusterfuck.

I must have a word with my eyes and brain, for they are telling me lies. That and i haven't missed a game of theirs for nearly 4 years (well every one shown on the TV).

Gary Neville isn't very good.
Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.
God man replacement's don't have to 100% of best to 100% of a replacement.

Fabregas is extremely overrated. Immense talent, but has no real desire. Bottler of the highest order.

Zabaleta is probably one of the top few right backs in the world IMO, he's a terrific player.
