    ^ you mean 5th. arsenal won’t be getting a sniff of fourth, if as said they aren’t spending in the Jan transfer window.

    Yep looks like they'll be lucky to get a Europa League spot, still that'll free them up for the title charge next year when you lot are struggling to beat Young Boys

    Not a laughing matter. The long term plan which sees Arse finally discovering that having two strikers and 8 midfielders on the pitch is flawed and spend the next 4-5 years working through 22 Defenders to find one that realises they probably need to spend some time communicating with the goalkeeper, then finding two wingers to replace the two defenders we have who think they are wingers and finally a midfielder who knows that strikers are supposed to try to get you goals - all this will come to pass in time for me to retire and once again i can watch my team try to win - as long as the games kick off at 12.30 UK time, later and i'll be snoring and dribbling Chang - the futures bright

    Utd are on a roll of super sub luck at the moment.
    How Harry Kane didn't didn't get a hatric is a mystery to modern football.
    Anyway,got a proper game with proper fans tomorrow.

    Gonna be a tough one...City 2 Wolves 1 is my prediction

    Would like to see Ole given a 3 yr contract at the end of the season. With a strong backroom staff to help deal with transfers etc.

    Transfers aren't dealt with by back room staff. They are assistants.

    I think you mean a Director of Football.

    Not really. As someone as inexperienced as he is at this level. Getting a strong experienced backroom staff to help him could work well.

    He has Mike Phelan coaching the first team at the moment, who Solskjaer is taking the credit for.

    Nah, Ole isn't the right choice at all IMO. Still a lot of work to be done there and big signings to be made, they rode their luck yesterday.

    He's got them playing the right type of football, decent tactics, in their correct positions.

    A good summer with the correct RB, CDF, and CM, and they'll be pushing for higher than 4th.

    Yes, really.

    Transfers aren't dealt with by back room staff. Not even when looking for a CDF.



    Any hot news in the hurling transfer market?

    I said I'd give Emery three transfer windows to build his own team, but you can discount this one because "apparently" there is no money for players other than loanees, despite us having one of the highest incomes in the Premier League (and indeed, the world).

    With the arguable exception of the Liverpool owners, it doesn't seem a good thing when seppos or residents of seppoland own your club.

    I see the son of the Fulham owner recently told a supporter to 'Go to hell'. Maybe they will be the next club to suffer this sort of financial squeeze.

    I'm pretty sure that they and the manager have some sort of input on what they feel is needed.


    A central defensive forward to play behind Lukaku/Rashford for example.

    And help from the referee, because Pogba sure as shit got away with what should have been a red card.

    No, and no.
    The manager may well be consulted on possible targets, but he and his backroom staff do not drive transfers at top clubs, where here is usually a director of football.

    Ferguson may have had more latitude due to his success and longevity, be even he pulled a few plonkers.

    The CDF is not a recognized acronym for the type of player you described. The fact that you had to explain it says it all really.

    I'm guessing you didn't click that it's a central defender, eh.
