BR0B0T and obvs...good to confirm that Danny Mills is a fcuking retard


Not sure what that moderate full-back Danny Mills has to do with it but perhaps you could explain.

he selected 11 Liverpool players in the combined 11

I rambled on about it (as a biased Utd fan) in the Future England squad thread

Even with our treble squad...Owen would be in with a shout, Gerrard was 19 and only emerging

You could make decent arguments for De Gea, AWB, Maguire and Pogba with your midfield and front three

Martial, James and Rashford would be on the bench

De Gea >= Alison

AWB == TAA...(better defender v better attacker)

VVD >>> Mags >>> Gomez, Tuanzabe, Matip, Lindelof etc >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Jones/Lovren

Pogba >> all your midfielders >>>>>>>>>> the rest of our midfield

Your front three >> our front three

Man Utd are just dire. They will take years to get back to the heady heights they were once before.

For a change, wouldn't disagree.

That is probably right.
This idea that you can just go out and spend a fortune and hey presto you have a team is nonsense.
Firstly you need a top manager (Pep has shown that at City) and there aren't that many around.
Then you have to find top players.
Then those players have to want to come to a club that only plays in the Europa League.

I have been disappointed at how long it has taken Liverpool to get to the point of regularly challenging for the top honours again.
Arsenal have slipped away as have Chelsea and Spurs have to go back to 1962 for their last really top side.

I can't see Man Utd challenging for at least 10 years and maybe longer but that may just be wishful thinking. :wink:

I think it is Vic. It is still United. Much like Liverpool is still Liverpool - the club were no great shakes when they signed Alonso or Mascherano, Torres or Suarez, but, it was Liverpool, so they joined, and made the club better.

It's still United - there's no other reason at the moment for them to have De Gea, Pogba and Martial (one of the most under-rated players in the PL in my view) in their ranks. They'll get there, probably sooner than a few of us hope.

Point taken, as the lure of enormous wages may outweigh ambition and potential on the pitch.
Let's look at this again in 5 years' time.
BTW I agree on Martial but the latest run of managers do not get the best out of him and they have the problem of both Martial and Rashford best suited by playing from the left.
Again, may they continue to have problems as they strive to continue qualifying to play Thursday night football in the Europa League.

I'm in for that. Hopefully Carragher will be on hand for full anal-ysis.

Depending on results this weekend, a win for Utd could see them back up to 7th whilst a defeat at Norwich could see them drop into the relegation zone.

Third goal was fantastic yesterday but to miss two penalties is inexcusable.
