    La Liga 2018/19

    You say that but they've just bought DeJong, Lenglet, Dembele, Arthur and will probably buy DeLigt. That's 5 players who will be world class. They may well double our CL total this season and with a squad that is already shaping up to dominate for the next decade as well. I wouldn't mind having an obscene wage bill if we had one of the best teams in the world and could potentially win 4 CLs + 8 league titles in a decade with a promising future to boot.

    barca just signed a new shirt deal worth double ours. Their growth the last decade is amazing. Completely left everyone else bar Madrid in the dust.

    Paul Pogba 2018/19

    He did say he is happy here for now but the media will ignore that. That being said, he's a player that should be playing for the best teams in the world and the reality is we're 5th in the PL and not come close to a PL for 6 years or a CL for 8 years. It's not like we're going to be winning either next season either. He signed a 5+1 year deal with us right? He'll probably try to force a move in 18 months time unless we improve a heck of a lot.

    Top 8 player tournament atm. Selby 8-9 Robertson Allen 9-7 Wilson Williams 8-9 Trump ROS 9-3 Bingham ---------- Robertson vs Allen ROS vs Trump If ROS wins the tournament he will become world number 1. But Trump will win this.

    Fed missed the chance for 101 titles Lost to Thiem in the final of Indian Wells. Some controversy though because the courts were slowed down a ton. Australia was slowed down as well and so was the US Open (for a 3rd time since 08). Seems like a deliberate instruction. Bad news for Fed.. Miami next then the Clay season aka Rafa-time. Rafa pulled out of his semi with Federer with an injury though so may not be 100% for a while. Federer is playing the clay court season this time though.

    FAC - 6th Round - Wolves vs Man Utd

    Pogba is literally our only source of creativity. Stop him and it's down to Lingard, Martial, Matic etc to cut open defenses which is pretty terrible. People always talk about the defense but having another player to create is even more essential than a CB to us. Our brilliant run did hide the fact that that whilst we are better than what we showed under Mourinho, we're not as good as our points tally under Ole would suggest.

    Champions League 18/19

    We'd need a 2 goal advantage at least to go to the Camp Nou.

    Champions League 18/19

    I know it's incredibly spoiled but considering our status and teams over the last few decades, every single time i look our European trophy total it just annoys me. Good chance either Barca/Liverpool will leave us in the dust, Juventus will surpass us or Man City could get their ball rolling. That being said, I'd rather City win than Liverpool. 18-6 is miles better than 20-3. I don't want any of them though - at least with Atletico we had a team I wouldn't mind winning. Every other possible ability is a dagger to us.

    Champions League 18/19

    Terrible draw for us to be honest. Not necessarily Barca, but the fact that City and Liverpool will both make the semis and the latter also has the semi 2nd leg at Anfield. A City vs Liverpool final is a genuine possibility. I think all will be back by the end of the international break.

    The sun are saying Lukaku is out.

    Trump has almost the same century-frame % as Ronnie and is about 15 years younger lol. Remember there's far more tournaments now than there was in the mid 2000s so he'll definitely get it as long as he doesn't decline soon, which doesn't look likely when you see the ages of the top players now. The last 5 seasons he has made 82, 40, 70, 73 + 63 (and counting this season). He'll beat 1000.

    PL Matchday 30: Arsenal vs Man Utd

    Big difference between Greenwood and Chong's cameos (vs psg) I thought. The former looked like he fit in fine and didn't look out of place whereas the latter looked like a bit of a liability. Granted, different scenarios and opposition, but Greenwood did look a lot better.

    Aimed at butler who took out Pogba.

    Let's All Laugh At Real Madrid

    They're going to go nuclear this summer. Hopefully thy buy Eriksen to keep them away from Pogba.

    FAC - 6th Round - Wolves vs Man Utd

    It's worth noting they've beaten Liverpool, Chelsea and drawn to City at home this season. They were unlucky to lose 2-3 against Spurs as well IIRC (and beat them at Wembley). This is a very tough game.
