These brands want us, but we probably won't want them, not BRANDED enough given our status
the 1999 treble was won wearing Umbro kit

paul scholes even wore Umbro boots

don't wanna be taking comfort of our poor performances/bad results by looking at other teams' bad results
eventually the tendency to accept mediocrity will creep in
yup am not. just didn't think it was right to make sweeping/half truth statements like how the tabloids are.

What status? we've been mediocre for 6 years.

even when we finished 6th, it's still the highest selling football jerseys in the world.

until that stops, the brand will still attract the top sponsors.

it's a money making machine.

So they can afford to pick and choose, not everyone will wear a lesser known brand like NB or umbro.. just go look factory outlets and who's queuing at which shops you know which are the sports apparel giants..

Some promise, but same old.
When your senior players can't make the chances count, it's frustrating to watch.
I actually prefer seeing TahithC on the right - simply because AaronWB offers next to nothing going forward. Defensively, he's a rock, just that he morphs into a stone when he goes into the opponent half.
Considering we lost to League Two opponents before (even with a half decent team), I wouldn't take any league cup result too seriously.
Credit to Rochdale for being very very organised. I don't see us being so organised when we don't have the ball. Basics.
Their scorer is a big fish only because he's in a small pond. IF he was in United, he'd be just another decent youngster. Our marking for that goal was non-existent. It wasn't even a whipped in cross that nobody could react to. High looping ball with extra seconds for someone to do something about it but no one did.

mentioned that during the preseason game.
shared an article that with same observation of him during CP time..

love his work at the back. we'll need a solid winger down the right...we always did. so many years still haven't looked into this area.

I think he's trying, but it's just not part of his game. Can tell he's either instructed to or instinctively more defensive, because he usually opts to stay facing the opposition left-back. The youngster left-back BrandonW on the other hand overlapped more times than AaronWB did the whole game I think.

I do not think adidas will drop us right now. We are still making money and adidas is still earning money from selling our brands. But who know after this season. But hey... got money come in... who will say no??
