    This is exactly the label I'm talking about. Keane could play football, very well in fact. To describe him merely as a thug is a total injustice to his ability as a player. Total injustice.

    Ask Ole who'd be the 1st player he'd take on his team from anyone he played with. I'll save you the time : It's always Keane.

    People who watched him, truly watched him, as you say others here haven't, know he wasn't just running around kicking people for 90 minutes.

    If any description of a player was 'LOL' worthy, it was yours.

    Yes, he could play football. Just not as good as Pogba.
    He could break legs much better though, so good for you if you like this crap.
    Ask Mbappe, Griezmann or Varane who'd they go to war with on a football pitch.
    The first name will be Pogba.

    He won't be playing with Fred and Pereira. There will be many better players around him.

    7 of those Pogba goals were penalties. 0 for Firmino.

    OK, substract the 7 goals (mind you, Curt has always said pens were counting the same), Pogba has 6 goals and 9 assists.
    Does that change the point? Is Pogba playing false 9?

    Rooting for United is the most punk **** I've ever done.

    I don't know why you're comparing them at all. Firmino does way more work, and never sulks. There's a reason he's the first player (maybe 2nd to van Dijk now) on the teamsheet and the team plays completely differently (and frankly looks pretty lost) when he's not there.

    I also never said that pens were the same as open play goals. I said that you still have to score them, and that they're still goals.

    Fernandinho is so crucial to the way City plays. While Sane gives them more of a goal threat now they're much more likely to get scored on.

    United is horrible. The half of this team shouldn't be active at this level and people wonder why they are 6th.

    Bernardo Silva is better than that entire United team put together.

    Both De Gea and Shaw were poor there, too slow to react for both.

    Talk about an underrated player. I think he gets a fair amount of credit here, but he's rarely talked about.

    I will never in a million years understand an official seeing the potential challenge between young and zinchenko and not booking either of them.

    It's either a foul on zinchenko and his second yellow or it's a dive for young.
