    I remember saying they should have waited until May to make the decision on who to make permanent manager at United, and I stick by that. However I'm not "against" Ole getting the job permanently, and as Zantera said, who else was really available.

    It's now up to them to make some decent signings this summer, and stop fucking around with contract talks with the players United needs to keep.

    I think they had to sign him permanently because the contract talks with players were getting screwed up. It's a lot easier to make the negotiations with players when they know the score when it comes to their management.

    That's true, making Ole permanent manager should have a positive effect on the contract talks.

    Chelsea never looked like they wanted to win except after the 2-0 when they decided to finally come out and play, only to go back in their little comfort zone after Liverpool shut down the pace of the game. Chelsea didn't want to control the game and it cost them.

    Salahs goal was an absolute cracker too. Gonna be a very interesting run in over the next few weeks

    Lost any hope for a good ending after the last few seasons. Bit like football in that regard actually

    At least you can't be disappointed when your favorite character dies if he's already dead.

    You all have poor taste.

    Mine's still alive since season one. C'mon Bronn.

    Also I was hoping Chelsea would do us a favour, fat chance of that.

    I liked the Hound in the earlier seasons. Unfortunately, he's been relegated to cheap one liners (as has Tyrion).
    I guess GoT is a victim of it's own success. The amount of people I know who didn't like it because it was "just a load of talking".

    Still love the show, don't get me wrong, but if it retained some seriousness and some logic, it would have been just that little bit more incredible.
    Beyond the Wall last season was a typical example of what has gone wrong. I could criticise every scene in that episode, but weirdly still enjoyed it. Left a poor aftertaste though.

    Also, don't shit on Bobby B. He held that throne for 20 fucking years yo.
    Absolute mad man.


    P.S The Chelsea of old would have ruined the party again. Don't like this new Chelsea

    Hopefully he is written into the books in a more major role.

    They didn't though? He's alive but most of his face got burned off, no eyelids etc.

    Sounds like an improvement.

    Near impossible task tonight, but I think they'll give it their best shot regardless. Not expecting a win, but hoping for a miracle.

    If Ajax dare to attack and play their own game then I think they could pull it off.

    I said shades of his Spain form earlier, let me take that back. He's completely in Spain.

    Jones and Young gifting goals. Sure Dr Gea is massively at fault but this defence needs gutting.

    I question myself every time I watch United: Why does Young start?
