    Rip to the best of all time.

    Messi might be the greatest club player of all time but no one can touch what Maradona did in 86.




    GOAT!

    They should play his song before each and every home game from now on.

    He never played club in Europe so that would be kinda silly, IMO. I'd rename the World Cup Trophy after him. It's literally called the "FIFA World Cup Trophy: now so that wouldn't be

    Man U is an enigma - winning in the premier league, beats PSG away then loses to them at home, now needs a result vs Leipzeg on Tuesday.....after climbing into the top 4 this weekend.

    Just a strange team that doesn't quite fit together.

    No Martial or Cavani. Really need Rashford and Greenwood to step up and put this away early. Leipzig gives up goals and we are playing very well on the road this season. No reason this should be anything other than 3 points.

    Ole trying to get fired today.

    Puts out a lineup of 7 defensive players, including a just returned from injury Luke Shaw. He's playing not to lose and then went down 0-2 QUICKLY. Playing not to lose always guarantees you're going to lose.

    #OleOUT

    Just horrifyingly bad managing. There is no excuse for setting up a team like he did. In a sense, he set it up as a 7-1-2. It got so badly exposed because no one in the back knew their role. Played not to lose and got their asses handed to them.

    He played a 3-5-2 against a pressing German side, that is STUPID.....4-4-2 diamond is the thing, which worked great in the 2nd half. My son says you know why we always look so good in the 2nd half because Ole has NO IDEA how to play in the first half until he sees how the other team is setup.

    THEY PRESS - my son's U19 team presses, if anyone plays a 3 back set against us, we win 6-0 every time......it is a bad matchup when you can go over the top on the wings and have 2 sloths in Lindy and McGuire in there.

    BTW - My son's team won Frontier League and is on to regionals - the team in our bracket that finished 2nd is the defending national champion.....can't wait!

    That, at best, was a 5-2-1-2. He was playing not to lose...and failed miserably. Then he leaves a forward in the bench while bringing in 2 defenders. Leipzig had to go for goals with numbers. They were ripe for a counter but you can’t do that with one midfielder. It was piss poor coaching. The play in the back wasn’t much better but they were put in a bad position to begin with.

    Congrats on your sons team.
