The situation with the Glazers and the dividends at #manutd explained 馃У

Unless you鈥檝e been living under a rock, you'll know that 拢11 million has been taken from the club in dividends. How are they doing this and what are the implications? I'm going to highlight all 猬囷笍
To begin with, we need to look at revenue. For those of you who are unaware of what this is, it鈥檚 essentially the total income generated by the sale of goods or services relating to a company鈥檚 operations. Manchester United generates money, or at least it used to 猬囷笍
Taking a sample period, United鈥檚 revenue grew consistently from 2012 to 2019. Meaning, year on year, the club was profitable. Since 2019, the club has decreased in revenue. At one stage, revenue trumped 拢620m. As of 2021, it's dropped below 拢500m. How is this? 猬囷笍

Erik ten Hag brind贸 una gran entrevista al peri贸dico @trouw, en la cual aclar贸 algunas de cuestiones que inquietan a los hinchas del #ManUtd respecto a la 'revoluci贸n' que traer铆a consigo el neerland茅s.

En este hilo te comparto sus principales declaraciones. 猬囷笍
Ten Hag: "Creo que podr茅 [manejar a las superestrellas]. No cambiar茅 mi visi贸n. Les dir茅 su tarea y quien no cumpla con ello me oir谩, sin importar qui茅n sea".
"Hago mis demandas por adelantado. Si el club no las concede, no acepto el trabajo. Soy el responsable, soy el que ser谩 juzgado por los resultados. No quiero ser el gobernante, trabajar茅 en conjunto, pero debo tener voz en las transferencias. Es una condici贸n para m铆".

馃毃 En Inglaterra, aseguran que Erik Ten Hag ser谩 el nuevo entrenador del #ManUtd.

Pero, 驴qui茅n es, c贸mo fue como jugador, qui茅nes son sus influencias como entrenador y cu谩les son las claves de sus equipos? 馃

Te cuento todo en este hilo. 馃У馃憞

Se agradece el MG 鉂わ笍 RT 馃攣 FOLLOW

Debut贸 y se retir贸 en el Twente, pero entre ambos periodos pas贸 por De Graafschap y RKC Waalwijk.

/Thread/ #PremierLeague clubs have smashed their own record for combined shirt #sponsorship deals, with the 20 clubs generating 拢358.75m for the 21-22 season, an increase of 拢14.25m from last yr. Sleeve sponsors are paying a further 拢83.75m to the 19 clubs combined (without EFC)

The news cycle is a confusing space sometimes;

- #ElectricCars are the future for the planet
- Mining #Lithium batteries is destroying parts of Bolivia/Chile/Argentina

- Decentralised #Cryptocurrencies are the future
- Mining #Bitcoin = huge energy consumption
The narrative around everything nowadays is all about #Values

Corporates latch onto every opportunity

Individuals the same (just read some of the stuff on LinkedIn) 馃

Life & business is essentially a game
#Winning is always key! (Be nice tho)

The rest is Perception=Reality

They truly NAILED IT!

When @ManUtd announced a 鈥渄azzle鈥 camo theme for the 3rd kit, I was worried that they wouldn鈥檛 stick to the roots of the 鈥渟tyle鈥 & would do it all in 1 pattern w/ same size stripes. But they stayed true. #ManUtd #ManUtdDazzle鈥
I know what you鈥檙e thinking: How the fuck is this camouflage? It was invented during #WW1 for ships and it didn鈥檛 hide them better - obviously. With the u-boat being introduced during this war & causing such destruction to shipping, anything that gave a little edge back to ships
was sorely needed. The real key here is painting two entirely different styles on port and starboard and have them meet up NOT at the bow, but off-center. The differently sized stripes as well as the random patches make tracking the ship VERY difficult.鈥

Decoding Mason Greenwood 馃彺鬆仹鬆仮鬆仴鬆伄鬆仹鬆伩...

The 18-year-old smarterscout young prospect has been an unbelievable finisher this season. His overall attacking output is pretty low, though, and he doesn't do much defending. Great ball retention aided by good skill on the dribble:

1/3 #MUFC Image
Greenwood comes inside to the right channel (halfspace if you prefer) and takes shots in great locations to the GK's left. These are actually better locations than those of, say, Arjen Robben, who tended to shoot from somewhat wider positions.

2/3 Image
You can see here that most of Greenwood's goals from RW came when he was almost head-on with the goal mouth. We'll see if he can keep getting into these positions 鈥 and keep up his amazing scoring rate 鈥 next season. For now it's just fun. See more stats on our site!

馃У THREAD: What's the best position for Jadon Sancho 馃彺鬆仹鬆仮鬆仴鬆伄鬆仹鬆伩, and which Premier League club should he join鈦夛笍

Last season the smarterscout young prospect was mostly at RW for @BVB, and the results were 馃敟馃敟馃敟 鈥 the kid was 19 years old!

(1/6) Image
This season Sancho's been lining up as more of a roving attacking midfielder for #BVB and he's been on fire again. His defending has even improved! Plus, that finishing skill has hit the stratosphere. All these numbers are converted to a Premier League standard! 馃く

(2/6) Image
The interesting part is that even though Sancho hasn't really lined up at LW a lot since 2017-18, he strays to the left whether he's playing as a RW or CAM. Here he is at both positions in the past two seasons 鈥 at CAM he's very mobile and gets into the left channel a lot:

Impact of Injuries on #ManUtd

Total Games: 42*

Games Missed Thru Injury:
GK: 0
LB: Shaw - 16
CB: Eric - 30, Axel - 24
RB: Dalot - 24, TFM - 33
DM: Matic - 13
CM: PP - 34, McT - 12
LW: Rash - 9
AM: 0
RW: 0
ST: AM - 9

This has had a huge impact. Let me explain.


#ManUtd Squad When Season Began:

LB: Shaw, Williams
CB: Harry, Victor, Eric, Phil, Axel
RB: Awb, Dalot, TFM
DM: Matic
CM: PP, McT, Fred
LW: Rash
AM: Mata, JL, AP
RW: James
ST: AM, Mason

This was wafer thin to begin with. Now add injuries & it looks like this:

Players Fit Throughout:

LB: Williams
CB: Harry, Victor
DM: 0
CM: Fred
LW: 0
AM: Mata, JL, AP
RW: James
ST: Mason

No backup DM, CM, LW & RW meant Jesse, AP, Mata played a lot. Hence no creativity.

Also AWB has had no rest & Williams couldn't be eased in.

The most common argument I hear against #Ole is 'whataboutism'. What about Carlo at Everton? What about Conte at Inter? What about Wilder at Sheffield? Ole's job is not only difficult but extremely unique and yes, he's the right man for it. Let me explain. #MUFC
Our situation is unique because:

1. We're one of the biggest clubs in the world.
2. We had one of the most successful managers of all time.
3. That manager gave us non stop success for 2 decades.
4. Now that manager has retired.

No other club ticks all these boxes.
The odds of any club being so successful for so long is extremely slim and to continue to be that successful after the main figure head behind that success steps down was always going to be difficult but not impossible. The best way to do it was to plan ahead.

THREAD: @Inter is letting Romelu Lukaku 馃嚙馃嚜馃嚚馃嚛 do what he does best

Let's look at his Serie A stats adjusted to a Premier League standard. His underlying attacking output is still only average 鈥 it's barely changed! 鈥 but he's good in the air and a good finisher as well.

1/5 Image
@Inter @markgoldbridge @ChloeJBeresford @Marcotti @JamesHorncastle @utdreport @ManUtd @MUSReply @InterMilanNow @Don_Nerazzurri @RomeluLukaku9 The change has been in Lukaku's role. Look at how his style evolved over the past few seasons. He used to do more forward passing for #ManUtd and shoot less. Now he links up, gets into the box to receive the ball, and shoots more 鈥 still not a classic target man, but closer.

2/5 Image
@Inter @markgoldbridge @ChloeJBeresford @Marcotti @JamesHorncastle @utdreport @ManUtd @MUSReply @InterMilanNow @Don_Nerazzurri @RomeluLukaku9 Check out Lukaku's smartermaps for the previous two seasons at #MUFC. In 2017-18 he came in from the right side and arrived near the middle of the box. In 2018-19 he was often confined to a narrow central channel; otherwise he roved around looking to get involved. Not great.

Bruno Fernandes 馃嚨馃嚬 is coming to save #ManUtd. Let's start with his ratings using a Premier League standard at CAM 鈥 great attacking output, so-so ball retention, average in duels, doesn't defend much, great finisher:

1/x Image
And here's how Bruno looks at CM, where he used to play a bit more often. Again, fantastic attacking output, but his ball retention, defending output, and skill in duels all look weaker when judged against Premier League CMs. Maybe he's best at CAM.

2/x Image
If we look at Bruno's smartermaps at CAM and CM, the first thing that stands out is pitch coverage. Dude is everywhere. And he takes corners on both sides, too. But he uses the channels more than the middle of the pitch 鈥 how does that square with #ManUtd's current style?

Lots of reds I hear saying鈥漺e need a creative midfield player鈥. This is often followed by a name and an amount of assists, as if to say more assists are required. If you follow this THREAD you鈥檒l see an interesting alternative view. #manutd #MUFC @samuelluckhurst @markgoldbridge
To sign a player and expect him to become the highest assister in the league would surely be expecting too much. Even if we did sign a player who went to the top of the assist league, what would that mean for us ? How many extra goals could we get from suddenly having the top man
In each of the last two seasons the highest premier league midfield player on the list is Eriksen of Spurs, outside of City and Liverpool players. I鈥檒l come to them later. Eriksen has 10 and 12 assists in the last two seasons. Don鈥檛 forget that he swings free kicks and corners in

Finnally a United manager who does what I've asked for since SAF left! Clean out the average squad players. Waaay too much deadwood in the squad... #ManUtd #MUFC
Love that Sanchez left. I don't care if we don't have many senior options up front. The guy ruined the salary structure and was a negative factor to have around the team.
United need to take their time to find new additions that fits the filosophy that OGS wants to play. One year of scouting and then continuing the process of adding new exciting signings like Maguire and AWB.

Some quotes from an interview former United coach Rene Meulensteen had with Norwegian newspaper VG prior to the game against Paris Saint-Germain coming up. Thanks to RedCafe newbie RedM11 for the translations.
Meulensteen: "Everyone is talking about Mauricio Pochettino. And believe me: I'm a big fan of Pochettino. He is a brilliant manager who has done a wonderful job in Tottenham. But he knows. Nothing. About. United." #manutd #mufc
Meulensteen: "Ole's lived [United]. He has experienced it on a daily basis. You can't learn that on a coaching course. There are so many who have failed, because they don't understand how big the club is. It's not a problem for Ole because he has been a part of it." #mufc #manutd
