(Yesterday's news but I've just seen it)
probably just muckraking but still :D
imagine if they lose vidic, evra, and possibly one of rvp or rooney... they'd be fucked beyond belief even if they had a better manager than moyes.
Just can't fathom the rationale behind Moyes being nominated and it has made me giggle. Is someone at the PL just being a proper wind-up knobhead to him?
think he had a seven match winning run before these three losses (all in Jan).
might be wrong though.
Not sure who would join them these days...
(although I suppose losing either of those two would free up a lot of wage space)
But only one.
But all the same, if a transfer = transfer fee + wages, then Rooney fucking off would give United plenty of cash to shop with. But yeah 'Not sure who would join them these days...'
Gary Goals has already made himself available.
City and Liverpool haven't had a problem making signings like Suarez and Toure when they weren't challenging for the title. Utd are just in that position now.
the Ozil signing has really intoxicated these people
that Utd are very unlikely to get a couple of players better than RVP or Rooney currently so there's not much point in clearing them off the wage bill.
Zlatan will want Champions League football if he moves.
The bit where he bollocks his agent for talking to Southampton had me spluttering on the tube
they could end up like Spurs, selling their best assets and bringing in a bunch of not-as-good players they don't know what to do with. One of the two, anyway.
City were splashing serious megabucks around when they got the likes of Toure and were obviously going to start 'competing' at some point. Not saying United won't be able to get promising players, but the idea of getting an instant goals replacement for Rooney or RVP is much more uncertain now.
An exceptionally talented player who every single scout in world football was aware of, but who had given those who could afford to be incredibly picky reasons to be wary of him. Liverpool weren't in a position to pick and choose and so gambled on him. In many ways it paid off.
tbf though, there are plenty of other players like that if you look hard enough- great players who carry a reputation risk or are in some way damaged goods. If you don't have the clout to bring the most attractive prospects, you have to work harder, be a bit more creative and take bigger risks than you otherwise might have. It looks like it's working for Liverpool overall and there's no reason United couldn't adapt and do the same.
Never said United won't ever sign a respected player ever ever again, more that they can't expect to compete for the big names once they finish 7th.
They were champions last season as well so it's not the same as Liverpool who haven't won jack since I've been alive.
Also, you know, money.
Just feels like they won't be able to compete for the kind of players who 'deserve' £250k/week. They could turn out to be very clever in the transfer market but, you know, last summer and that.
the overall cost of losing out on the CL for a couple seasons will be greater than buying what Utd need to remain in it.
is suggesting that Manchester United might still be able to get the odd good player the immature, fantasist response?
used there in the Swingers sense?
How many nominees are there?
Would have been 20 if his name was Allardici though.
"Manchester United's David Moyes, Chelsea's Jose Mourinho and Everton's Roberto Martinez were the other managers in contention for the December award"
but FA Cup breaks feel almost as interminable sometimes. Especially when your next game isn't until Monday night.
they;d end up with 15 players after it
and he loves saying 'he's not a Manchester United player'
What a knob rash
(*sound of pussywhipping, idiots)
Seems Bradford are resigned to losing him, as otherwise he'll wind down his contract. Fully expect to see someone else come in for him now.
pretty underwhelming given the number of supposedly interested clubs.
also doesn't feel like a clean split when he's just going down the road.
thanks for the memories anyway Nahki ;_;

leaning towards the latter, at least whilst there's a chance he and Terry are on the pitch at the same time.
Red can be a very unforgiving colour
Presumably you'll need to sell to raise the money though considering the losses just announced. Mata off in the summer?
Operating a loss doesn't seem to bother the owner, and we're operating at the sort of loss that UEFA don't really give a toss about. Does look increasingly inevitable that one or two big names will be off and replaced, mind.
Don't know how accurate that is, but it does rather presume that FFP is something anybody takes even vaguely seriously and isn't riddles with loopholes anyway, so probably not much of a concern.
Besides, if the papers' valuation of Rooney at £30m is right then I guess you can probably raise most of that by selling off the likes of Ba and De Bruyne.
My understanding is that most of the loss we recently reported doesn't count in the first FFP monitoring period, and a lot if will never count at all.
Could probably con someone into taking Torres for £20m
Both wire me the money now and I'll refund whoever is slowest.
It sorta goes without saying now.
Means QPR are probably nailed on to sign him on loan or some shit.
Don't like the bloke, but he'd probably smash up the Championship.
Robert De Niro and Silvester Stallone believe Everton will beat us 17-0, while Lorro believes every game tomorrow will be 2-0. Not sure which is more ridiculous:
De Niro: "I have played it, and my kids played it but not much. I am not into the sport."
Stallone: "So you are not ready to go pro?"
De Niro: "No, not unless there is a part in a movie for me."
Stallone: "We could do a film called 'Sludgematch' about the slowest soccer players in the world."
whats the point
that saying 1-0 another 4 times is out of the question
that is a fucking joke and sad that he gets paid so much for such lazy terribleness. hilarious tho
once made a running total of all the times lawro predicted we would win 2-0 in a season.
Think he predicted 2-0 like 90% of the time or some shit.
maybe he changed his routine
are a 2-0 and a pair of 1-1's respectively, so no he's still on a roll there
so making fun of someone's/whining that they're not putting effort into them is doubly so
I think based on his predictions from the year before we got relegated, he had Wolves finishing 7th or 9th...
Anyone have any views on this? Anyone? I know almost nothing about him.
His goal against Bournemouth was a thing of beauty - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37Ion4y0b7o
'his goalscoring record in the premier league and for england is second to none'
Rooneys gone on holiday with his family for some warm weather training and RVPs still a "little while off"
Gonna get beat again tomorrow :(
whats the point? SURELY if you're that desperate for a striker, you're not going to risk getting half a game out of him before he's injured again, rather than waiting a few days so he can play the rest of the season?
he could be goneburger anyway so why worry?
If anything, getting fired and permanently crippling Carroll is the second best outcome available to him now - get a £4.5m payout, keep your 'never been relegated' rep AND see the team you were canned by go down so you can say I told you so.
pointing out that there are still tickets on general sale for this match. I'd have thought the Cardiff fans would be all over this one as it's probably one of the few games this season they're firm favourites to win.
What are the queues like after football to get on a train at White Hart Lane? Someone at work says he walks to Severn Sisters but it looks a bit of a trek and the Mark Duggan vigil/march is going on tomorrow too.
Easier to get to from the away end, too- you won't have to cut across the home fans to get towards the other end of the stadium
Someone at work claimed it was more 20-30 minutes and I didn't think it was that far.
Northumberland Park is closed and now the Tottenham twitter is advising fans to avoid Seven Sisters, this will be fun.
He's somehow managed to engineer a situation in which West Ham are playing Cardiff and all the LAD football press are talking about the implications of the result on the pitch, rather then the NAWTYness off it.
but also signing michael bradley from roma.
