Yeah and they/he ****ed that right up didn't they/he.

It sounds like Moyes also did a lot of groundwork for a Shaw deal.


Is that why he was so shite at managing the first team? I bet the only thing he did involved in that, if anything, was be incompetent.

Nani admits he's considering his future at Man United: "I've other options. I'll evaluate when I get home. Back to Portugal? I don't know."


Anywhere would be fine, Nani.

Nani: "I'm a #MUFC player but there has been some interest on my behalf. I will evaluate it and decide what is the most advantageous for me"


Yeah ok. Sod off now please. (And can you take Ashley Young with you as well)?

Cheers.

gg, you seen in the news that Moyes has been talking with some team, one that is in the CL.

"I left United to go manage a team in the Champions League", a future Moyes possibly says. :lol:
Pies.

Yes. Didn't they just sack Mancini? Seeing as though he was "so successful" in the Champions League, they should do well!!
I'm happy whatever he does, just as long as it's not United. Supposed to be a nice bloke!

Yes I think they did. And their fans are pretty vocal and kibishii by all accounts. He wouldn't be chickening out taking a simple option by going there.

Anyway, they say they would prefer a German manager and he approached them! :lol: :doh:

I get the feeling Man Utd will be a very different proposition this coming season.
Going to be fun finding out.

I don't think you can ignore the cash in football because there is next to no chance that a Nottingham Forest, Ipswich, Aston Villa, Norwich (third when Fergie first won the Prem, with Villa second) will compete for the title any more. If you arrange the Premiership teams using their wage bill, you get very high correlation with the final table. The biggest exceptions are at the bottom where you can have a relatively big spender like QPR still eff up.

ManYoo were supposed to get Herrera for Moyes last summer, so it feels a bit weird them getting the same player now. It sounds like Moyes also did a lot of groundwork for a Shaw deal.


Oh yeah I totally understand the money thing... just saying that me personally, I try to ignore it.

As with many things in life, if you pay more money you generally expect to get better things. Ne.

All news seems to be that Suarez will be going to Barca for (insert huge number here).

Wonder how Liverpool will rebuild after that. I hope Sanchez doesn't do the swap, apparently he doesn't want to go.

Can't remember any massive deals where a quality player was swapped + cash.

I doubt players want to be involved in that kind of thing.

Where's Moyes when you want him. Someone give him a job so he can spend a vast forune on his mate!

In English football, Ashley Cole for William Gallas is the one I remember. Maybe it's because of the the genius Arsenal fans' song, "I'd rather have a Willie than a C**t" :friend:

In world football, Barca did a big swap with Zlatan for Eto'o and some dosh. That was probably the biggest one in recent years.

But yeah, not many. I think you get them more in American sports.

He'll be difficult to replace.....the boy's a goal machine. Who are Lpool linked with other than Sanchez? Is he any good?

I think Liverpool have played the situation very well. I would have got rid of him at racism time, but he's got a goal a game and an assist every other game since then, Liverpool nearly won the league and got the coveted CL place, and his valuation has gone up by about thirty million.


If you employ Rafanomics and calculate the beloved "net spend", the fifty million profit on Suarez might more than cover the losses on Carroll, Downing, Adam and the other ones King Kenny bought. Henderson doesn't look such a bad buy now either.

Incorrect, mop head. You have EVERYTHING to prove after last season.

Terrible attitude. Moyes, get a job and buy him up please.

Plenty of potential for a Spurs. Same at ManYoo too with their shopping.
