  1. hey Frank…. since the beginning of the season TAA has more assists than ANYONE in the premier league – reece james needs to do it as long as TAA to even deserve to be in the debate YNWA

  2. It is possible managing primadonnas but you to be astute with your tactics and man management. A thoroughbred leader.
    A manager with pedigree.

    Zidande was gifted a team. Managed them well and won titles.
    He has no desire nor the experience to build a Team.

    So forget Zidane.

  3. I think its a fair question, despite him wanting to "live his life" bla bla, He managed a star studded Real Madrid with super prime Ronaldo in it. What makes you think he can manage a normal or a troubled team? He is yet to prove himself ultimately like Klopp or Pep and hiding for a long time now. Fans are fans, wants to defend his supremacy because he was "Zidane the Player". The real challenge is still out there, It doesn't have to be United. I really want to see him with the France Team if all this hype about him is true. Easier to escape with National team coaching because its not weekly or seasonal basis. Even Southgate is doing it LOL

  4. England sucks to live in, and the Prem is overrated by Prem fans, other teams are more important and a bigger draw than Prem teams, especially a horribly run Man Utd with a squad that is poorly constructed.

  5. Would you want to swop living in Madrid or Paris for Manchester? Not exactly a beautiful city now is it, terrible weather. Swopping french and Spanish cuisine for fish and chips and pies. Nah fam I'd stay where I am too.

  6. Cuz in PL you have competition is not going to Madrid and knowing you will win same for Juventus , Bayern,PSG they have no competition with them you definitely will finish in top 3 but in United you have no chance of doing something cuz in PL is Liverpool, Chelsea, City, Arsenal and many more

  7. poch needs to look at this players individually and how he wants them to play. have individual interview with them. For now it seems he doesnt have a plan. He relies on their talents to work out

  8. Zidan loves to wear his expensive suites in the warmth of Spain. Loves a Trent mack. UK is about wearing big coats. Trent can not defend on the back foot. Reice James and Walker are better than TAA. Walker is no1 imo. TAA is David Beckham at right back. No pace, average defender, just delivery.

  9. Not a good manager , he knows it got lucky with the squad at Madrid, Ronaldo at his peak , he knows and is not foolish enough to destroy his legacy to football, and his wife noes two 👍

  10. Well the real question is why should he? Guy has an affinity with Madrid and won everything there is to win. Why learn another language, move your family and all that when you don't need the money and the France job is likely waiting for you if you want it.
