The resurgence of Gomlee has made me wonder; how long has everyone here been on footytube?

I go back to June 2009.
November 2009 when I created my account. I'm sure like many others I lurked for quite a while too. :P
March 2010, but I start posting around June
March 15th,2013

Actually before the creation of my account I used to come here for highlights and then saw the forums and I wanted to get involved too,so created an account!
+1
i started coming to the site back in late 2009 and i finally created my account in march 2010, i remember the website that i used for watching highlights back then was shut down so i did a quick look on similarsitesearch.com and footytube was one of the first results, i came looking for match highlights but i stayed for the team pages and the discussions
2010.
25-July-2009. Oh my god more than 5 years. It has been really fabulous. Met so many friends.
I've been a user since Oct 2010, but I was watching the highlights on here much before then. Decided to join in when I saw how active some of the forums were.

Has been a great decision :)
so nani is constantly playing and he's been more and more important for sporting. he is their heart and soul at this time for them and he's been amazing in the past few games. so i want to know what u guys think ? do u believe he can return or do u guys hate him so much that u can't see his name on the team sheet ???????
Who said we hate him? He is class we all know.
I think it was clear to everyone Nani wasn't happy here and it seems he has the kind of temperament not to play well if he isn't happy. I don't think we would have ever seen Nani at his best here again so better for everyone all round to say goodbye IMO.

That being said on his day he's unplayable but there were far too few of those days for us and I think he began to alienate quite a few fans with all of his silly mistakes/decision making. Will definitely miss him, he had some great moments for us no doubt.
he needs regular games and to feel important, it's best we let him move on. recoup some of that fee and get in other players. i'm sure a fresh start will do both parties good.

his talent has never been in question, but he hasn't been happy here for a couple years now and he hasn't been playing regularly at all, which has damaged form and confidence to the point where he's unrecognizable. time to move on.

he scored a great goal, left footed, from outside the box. also created some great chances etc. he's still got it :P all he needed were games and the feeling of being important again, i suppose.
Nobody hates Nani. Some of us have gotten tired of his inconsistency but we all know that he's a class player when on form.

A lot of us are big fans of him, including myself. But as much as I want him to succeed here, it's getting clearer every year that he won't stay here for very long. He clearly fell out of love with the club, and he himself said recently that he was becoming unhappy at United.
I don't really know where it went wrong with him. in 2011 he was voted our best player and one season later he was getting injured regularly or when he was fit he was very frustrating to watch.
How is everyone? Just checking out this site again, been a while since I was on. Loving the new look of our squad, much more cutting edge than it has been for a good few years now and the morale is much higher now much thanks to LVG. More pace, better players. Still question marks of our defence and how they'll cope over the season but i'm thinking top 4 is realistic, we just have to bang in goals like Liverpool did last season and not give any of the teams any sort of respect. Every game is a must-win from now on, nothing taken for granted.
Lol it's been ages mate! Welcome back.

I was wondering the other day where some of the old guard have gone- you, Rob12, Tony, Borg, etc.
My my it has been a long time. :P
wow been a long time
I have u as a friend on psn and you havnt been on there for ages.. Good to see old faces back and yes top 4 is realistic.
The ol' tube is still around lol
Lol Welcome back. Damn that a long time since last time you're here.
Also looks like Solskjaer is going to leave Cardiff. It hasnt worked out for him over there. Maybe we could get Daehli back?
probably should have gone to villa when he had the chance.

in other news, phil jones has 66 pace in fifa15.. 10 point drop from fifa 14. what a joke! smalling and evans are both 74+ >:(
+1
To be fair Utd defense is a joke in FIFA 14. All the CBs are slow as hell. Dont really play with Utd. Even if I do I have to go through many different tactics to get it right. I was hoping they would improve the custom tactics in FIFA 15. It is way too limited in 14.
Sad for Ole, but he's a good manager, he'll get another job soon enough.

Honestly, some of these FIFA ratings are absolute jokes. Rafael is a 77. That's probably the one that pisses me off the most. 77 really? 2 seasons in a row?! The guy is one of the very best RBs in the league and was arguably THE best RB in 2012/13, one year ago, and he's at 77. Nice.
Jones is SLOWER than Pique. Let that sink in. One of his biggest asset in real life is his pace and he's at 66. What the actual f**k. Carrick drops to 79 with a whooping 79 passing stats. Same ratings as Alex Song who hasn't touched a football in 2 seasons while Carrick was in the team of the season just last year.
Shaw gets in the team of the season then EA gives him a 75 rating.

The ratings are so awful this year man it actually gets on my nerves.
Fifa has been purposefully rating are teams as s**t, since Fifa 2010.
The last great United side in a Fifa game was back in Fifa 09. The fact that for some reason, United always seems sluggish and un-precise when playing with them compared to other sides; is the reason why I haven't played Fifa with United since.

In Fifa12, ManU is one of the better teams, esp in defence. Vidic was 89, Rio 85, Evra high 80s....
i stopped buying fifa after 13. 6, 7, 8, 9 were great. 10 was ok, if sucked and after 12 i realized that fifa was on a decline.
There is no other football game though. i just dont like PES. The only reason i buy it now a days is for pro clubs and seasons. FUT is overrated.
KAGAWA: Moyes didnt really count on me.

"My decision was clear, I wanted to return to Borussia Dortmund and only to Borussia Dortmund.

"I want to achieve success with this club again, and with no other.

"Only facts matter in football, stats, goals, assists, titles, and a lot was missing in this regard.

"That was probably why they no longer included me in their plans.

"Everybody knows that my second year at Manchester United was particularly difficult.

"The manager did not really count on me, and the team was also on a bad run.

"That means I am all the more delighted to be back. My heart had remained at Borussia Dortmund anyway."
Can't dwell on the past and hindsight is 20/20 but I wish we had left him alone at Dortmund. I'm glad he's back and getting his career back on track. Sad that things didn't pan out.
Also, I don't think what he's saying is a smack in the face to United but more a statement of his affection to Dortmund.
f**k moyes

such a mediocre bastard
Most players did not say anything last season due to respect to their manager, but this season, players started to let everything out, Rio first and now Kagawa. Its a joke that people doesn't think Moyes was the reason the club was mediocre.


Btw, this is interesting too, from Klopp:

“I met Sir Alex in Nyon and he’s still in love with Shinji," Klopp is quoted as saying in The Sun on Sunday.

"He told me: ‘Shame we didn’t manage this well so that it worked out for him. We were satisfied in the first year.’

“And in the second year you usually make the next step but he didn’t manage to do it.

"But Sir Alex was saying: ‘Shame we should have made this work.’”
So David Moyes has still won more Champions League matches that City have in their entire history.

Nani scored his trademark goal today
aaw you still have a crush on him eh?
Well he IS still our player even if its obvious he's leaving for good lol.
+1
Yes @drde190. Yes I do
With players coming back from injury and a good transfer window and actually playing like United for once, this forum is filled with positivity.

Makes me very uncomfortable...

I still cant be hopefull with all the s**t that happened last season.I totally expect us to lose next week, with us breaking the record for the most throw-ins in a game.
#DamnYouMoyes
I am confused o_O is this a FT time glitch or are you schizo?
A blessing in disguise that Rafael is omitted from the latest Brazil squad.
he hasnt been called up for ages, he's being overlooked on purpose. had a falling out after the olympic games with one of his teammates. he was also getting stick for the first goal brazil conceded to mexico in that final iirc.
+1
if only all our important players can learn from that and do the same :P
Brazil has so much talent that they can have the biggest selection headache. Rafael could do amazing for them at RB but they'll never know. Maybe they'll realize once he's 25 or so.
http://www.theguardian.com/football/2014/sep/16/pep-guardiola-bayern-munich-players-not-interested-manchester-united

Yes Pep, we could only afford DiMaria and Falcao
yeah we defintely couldnt afford their best players like kroos who went for an astounding 24 million. not sure what his angle is but no one's going to believe their asking price for players is higher than 60 million we paid for di maria.
+3
Quite desperate from guardiola there lmao then again the media do take things out of context. Still think he's annoying.
+1
guardiola is one of the most annoying and disgusting coaches there is.... very very pretentious... the absolute opposite of the kinds of ronaldo, mourinho and zlatan who speak their minds freely and dont wear any mask... he cares about his image and reputation more than anything else, always carefully craft his words (but not on this occasion), try so hard to appear smart, doesnt want to coach difficult clubs, go for easy club (bayern), etc.... only knows about tiki taka and nothing else... he got lucky inheriting an exceptional generation of players in barcelona that eased his job so much....

and regarding the article,

falcao >>>>>> muller
di maria >>>>>>>> robben
herrera in 3 years >>>>>>>> schweinsteiger in 3 years


pep was drunk, he knew he was drunk
+6
I agree that Pep is annoying and speaks sh*t most of the times...But lets be honest

Muller >> Falcao and Robben >> Di Maria...atleast at this point in time.

Even LVG would agree especially about Robben...Yes he dives at time, but probably him and Ribery are at another level right now.

Muller - No comments on this guy...you all know how good he is for country and club
+3
He said "They don't have money" and the next line he says "I saw they spent a lot of money". To me that's a translation issue, or journalists cherry-picking quotes to make a story. He probably meant something like "they didn't want to spend money on our players".

@Theatre Guardiola "inherited an exceptional generation" and that's why he succeeded -- that's a joke of an argument. He sold half his inheritance. But more importantly, if Barca did not play the exact system he did, we would not have been nearly as successful (Busquets, innovative pressing, innovative off-the-ball movement). There were tactical innovations all over the park. But more than anything else he knew how to get the best out of these players. If you don't believe me, watch Luis Enrique at work this year. When three new youth players become pedigree world-class by the end of the year BECAUSE Luis Enrique knew how to use them, are you going to again say that he was lucky to have a good batch?
@Bazinga I think Muller and Falcao just can't be compared, they are such different players. Muller and Rooney could I guess, and in that comparison I would choose Muller.

But Robben > Di Maria? Esp for United? No way dude... since last year, Di Maria as a mid is just something else.
+1
Yes for the others, but right now, I wouldn't say Di Maria is better than Robben. Robben is at his peak and is an absolute beast. Did you watch the World Cup? Was the best player there for sure.

That being said, Di Maria is obviously exceptional and close to as good, and given their age, Di Maria will become better in the near future whereas Robben has likely peaked and will probably start his slow decline. Both are great. I wouldn't necessarily say one is better than the other but if one had to be picked, right now, Robben is a little more deadly.
+3
@tanmay

i dont understand your argument at all...
know how to use/ utilize them?

would you say if xavi, iniesta, etc. were poor passers, pep would have changed his tactic and abandoned tiki taka?

nahh.... regardless the players he coaches, he'll always use that same tiki taka technique, he carried that to bayern and got crashed by real madrid... jupp or klopp are a much better coach than him...

put it simply, ask him to coach fast attacking football teams like dortmund or netherlands, i bet he wont go anywhere....

+2
You make this really easy. I can flip your argument - would Mourinho be able to play tiki taka or make his team good in possession? We know from experience that this is difficult for him - both Chelsea and Madrid had a lot of trouble when teams decided to sit back. And at Chelsea, Mourinho seems to have solved this by buying the players who suited him (Costa is apparent, but even Cesc was bought for his directness from Arsenal days). His response to his problems is always more directness (Costa).

But none of this means Mourinho isn't a great manager. Similarly Guardiola specializes and I admit we have yet to see if he is versatile. But he's the best at what he does, and that's why he is considered one of the best.

And by the way, if you gave him Dortmund or Netherlands, the teams will do very well. Gotze's performance for example, hasn't fallen under Guardiola, and neither has Robben's. The only difference is they will just be adapted to his system. And every manager does that. It's happening at your club right now.
+1
Tanmay - Yes, agreed that Muller cant be compared with Falcao at all..I just mentioned it because Theater did.

But Robben better at this moment for sure..nothing against Di Maria, but Robben is a bomb that can explode and destroy any defense. He humiliated spain in that worldcup game and was Ned,'s best player and one of the player of the tournament..Just my opinion.
I dont personally like guardiolas style but you have to give credit where its due. The Barcelona of 2009-11 was one of the best squads in history.
And as much as I enjoy DiMaria cutting through defences every game robben is a much better player currently.
pep is a douche and i think he knows that his bayern is not nearly as good as the treble-winning bayern of two years ago. he's a possession fundamentalist and cannot see past his own nose. i like that he masks his insecurity by trying to slag us off.
Guardiola has a big mouth eh?
Let's see if he could afford OUR players like Young or Anderson.

Pep is a terrific manager. What he's done with Barca was out of this world. He won everything in one season. Who else can say that? He brought back a philosophy that saw opponents leave the Nou Camp with 20% possession and without a single shot on goal.
I respect him a lot. I personally much preferred Jupp's Bayern's side and more straightforward approach but we'll see what Pep achieves with this club.

That said, I would like to see him take over over a slightly less successful club and see what he can do with it.
