I honestly think it was horrendous," he admitted. "We didn't look like a team today that was going to beat West Ham. I think individually and as a team we were awful. That's not good enough. It's hard to take and we're sorry to the fans for what they saw today. It was not good enough from a Man United team with all the talent we have.

Is Captain America’s Power Linked To Black Panther – And What Does That Mean Aor Avengers 4?

  Reddit user 4DimensionalToilet shared their own theory recently, suggesting that Captain America’s super soldier powers may have come directly from the Heart Shaped Herb, the Vibranium-infused plant that gives the Black Panther their super strength, speed, and endurance as well. Tony Stark’s father Howard Stark was famously behind helping scientist Dr. Abraham Erskine tweak the serum so that it worked successfully; the first time Erskine tried the serum on Johann Schmidt, Schdmidt turned into Red Skull. We also know that Stark must have visited Wakanda – or had a source there – as Cap’s shield is made of vibranium, a super metal also only found in Wakanda. So it makes sense that Stark would also know about the Heart Shaped Herb. ‘The Heart Shaped Herb was incorporate...
