Thurs Oct 20th 8:05 pm kick off. I honestly think Ibra could do with sitting this one out. Let Rashers or Martial lead the line. Ibra has played the full 90 min in each game he started and he needs a game to miss out on as he has missed some sitters recently. Just to give him a slight kick up the backside. The team I'd play, if I were Mou: DdG Shaw Smalling Bailly Valencia (or Fosu-Mensah) Herrera (or Blind / Carrick / Basti) Morgan Pogba Memphis (or Rashers if Martial is upfront and vice versa) Martial (or Rashers) Miki
Man Utd have the most expensive current squad ever assembled, while 9 out of the top 20 squads worldwide are in the PL. The research is based on transfer fees and wage expenditure. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2016/oct/03/manchester-united-squad-most-expensive-history 1 - Man Utd (€718m) 2 - Real Madrid (€634m) 3 - Man City (€611m) 4 - Barcelona (€485m) 5 - Chelsea (€481m) 6 - PSG (€455m) 7 - Juventus (€395m) 8 - Arsenal (€381m) 9 - Bayern (€357m) 10 - Liverpool (€356m) 12 - Spurs (€274m) 14 - Everton (€212m) 19 - West Ham (€196m) 20 - Southampton (€182m) Nothing too surprising in this (aside from the sheer amount of money involved). The teams spending the most (the top 10) are the teams that have the highest revenues. Same 10, only different order. And these clubs still can't reduce their ticket prices for fans.
Sometimes i've wanted to know/say something football related but the question or observation doesn't really warrant a thread of it's own, so thats the kind of thread this is. Doesn't have to be United stuff either. I was just watching the Bobby Charlton 60th Anniversary special on MUTV. He has always been my favourite player, i can still recall watching him on our old black and white telly in the sixties. I was really surprized that the special wasn't more 'special.' Really small audience and Bobby not being there, although i'd imagine he gets sick of all the accolades sometimes. It looked more like it was filmed in someone's old double-garage or something! I was pissed off at the audience and some of their questions. Some weren't about Bobby at all and they were so predictable too. One of the ex-players [i've forgotten who he is] ended up talking much more than the other two, plus he was chewing the whole time. I've got a thing about chewing, especially when the person is on camera. To me its really rude and repulsive, i cannot stand it. It's just like talking with your mouth full, disgusting. Actually you see a lot of older people doing that, don't you? Plus of course those bloody Americans are born chewing gum! I forget the name[again] of someone who was speaking about Bobby, i think he's probably background staff? Anyway he's going on about how Bobby is the best player to come out of England[I'd of said Britain] then says he'd be in the top 20 best players ever. Top 20! Saying that means he thinks Bobby is number 20 or 19 or something. What an insult. He said he wasn't as good as Pele or even Messi! I know most of you will probably agree, but it's bollocks! Pele was Brazillian so therefore he is sexy, cool, and must be the best ever. Same with Maradonna and Messi. If a player is from Sth America then he automatically is better than any pommie player coz English players with their pale skin aren't cool or sexy. Bobby definitely couldn't be cool owing to...
2 full fecking weeks for the next game!! :( Premier League Anfield Monday 17th October at 8pm Sky sports Big game this one and the first of a run of 5 big games in 12 days. Beat them by 2 and we leapfrog them in the league which would be a nice wee bonus. Hopefully we get the last back from poxy intl duty with no fresh injuries.
How many bad decisions are they going to benefit from to give them last minute wins this season? The count is on two so far after just seven games, whoever is closest to the correct amount wins. My guess is 8. Brings me joy that the bastards have no chance at winning the thing.
