Walks in and poisons dressing room

We should be fine.

Welcome all.

Help yourselves to the prawn sandwiches.

Are you all watching the... <boak> ...'Pogmentary'?

slimpickins - 16 Jun 2022 14:15:23 (#5 of 32)

Never even heard of it.

Totally Football had an interview with Rafa Honigstien (sp?) who has been embedded at United while RR was there, anything to do with that.

I don't know why teams do such things, they always seem to coincide with disaster.

From what i read on the Athletic it's a humbling and harrowing depiction of one man's selfless struggle to do his very best for his employer, undeterred by the contempt he was treated with, all the while expected to somehow survive and scrape by on a pitiful £290000 a week.

Directed by Ken Loach I expect.

Spoiler alert

He comes out of it looking like a bit of a cnut....

davedanon - 16 Jun 2022 18:59:22 (#8 of 32)

Same way he went in then.

MU's shares crash, down 47% from the Oct price and 21% since the take over, £1.3b wiped off the value of the club:

dominoboy - 17 Jun 2022 07:29:08 (#10 of 32)

It means that since the Glazers took over United in 2005 share prices have fallen by 21 per cent overall.

And net debt up almost 12% this year. Ouch.

Papers today claiming Ronnie is after reuniting with Maureen in Roma.

Doesn't feel part of the Mr10 revolution apparently. It's in the mail so I wont link but...

CaptainBlack - 17 Jun 2022 16:16:31 (#12 of 32)

I think I’d be happy watching the kids play anyway. He’s had his swan song.

slimpickins - 17 Jun 2022 16:19:09 (#13 of 32)

Yeah, he was one of the few to have a good season but the team needs rebuilding with younger players. Good luck to him, I respect that he isn't just going for a last big payday somewhere.

Tadagee - 17 Jun 2022 16:49:34 (#14 of 32)

No, he's just done that.

davedanon - 17 Jun 2022 17:04:00 (#15 of 32)

Heh.

slimpickins - 17 Jun 2022 17:19:14 (#16 of 32)

Ouch!

Mazzarin - 21 Jun 2022 14:52:39 (#17 of 32)

Ericksen has apparently turned down Man Utd.

CaptainBlack - 21 Jun 2022 14:59:44 (#18 of 32)

I was going to say his heart wasn't in it but ...

Mazzarin - 21 Jun 2022 15:15:36 (#19 of 32)

Bruh!

Catspyjamas17 - 21 Jun 2022 15:23:26 (#20 of 32)

I don't blame him, Brentford must be a fun place to be. Possible Difficult Second Season notwithstanding.
