Sanchez for Sancho? This must be up there in terms of all time ludicrous transfer stories.

I have no words to thank you enough for all these years and I am very proud to say that I was your manager. Thank you so much once more and always remember: You'll never walk alone."

Mad how many of these swap deals are touted by transfer bullshitters and how rarely it happens in the real world.

See Utd taking out £150m loan due to covid-19, probably to buy players. All their fans want Glazers to sell etc, but who would buy their club for the £3bn they would want?

In a way the day FSG want to sell will be very difficult for them aswell imo. Same for Arsenal and Kroenke.  Why buy a multi billion pound club when you can buy say a Newcaslte and turn them into a billion pound club.

Also the amount of people who could afford to buy a club for billions are very few and far between. I think these owners the day they come to sell will have to get real.
There would be interested parties out there. People who want something prestigious in their portfolio rather than someone who wants to make a profit.
"All the lads have been talking about is walking out in front of the Kop, with 40,000 singing 'You'll Never Walk Alone'," Collins told BBC Radio Solent. "All the money in the world couldn't buy that feeling," he added.

That overrated thread at RedCafe is hilarious reading.

Jesus wept, it's like they were blinded by other football games going on while they were sleep walking titles to 75-85 points in a shit era of the PL.

Surely not?  I thought he was untouchable as a bona fide genius, one of the best that ever walked the earth. He once said Paul Scholes was a good player and theyíve used that as justification for their claim that Paul Scholes is the best midfielder that ever played the game, or summat. 

They canít question his place amongst the pantheon of greats otherwise it calls into question their Scholes claim.

That can't be right as the period they were winning every season was the strongest the league has ever been but also coincided with other European leagues being the strongest and that's why they didn't win more in Europe despite qualifying for it every season with little competition.

Funny how your judgement gets clouded as the years go by. 

ņ bit like how they insisted they'd never  get like us during our downturn.  Never happen to them as a club or as a fan base yet reading the caf is basically like Liverpool forums were.

We just need this player or that manager.  Or if only he'd stayed fit would have made a difference.  Not spending enough due to spending on shit players.  Bad owners.  Bad Managers.

Excuse after excuse with thread after thread of team selections, comparisons with other teams, or their ex players.

It's funny as fuck really cos they've always been shit, they just got lucky for a decade or so.

He retired at the end of his second to last season at Arsenal. Everything since then has been magic money falling from the sky into his pocket.

Scholes better than Gerrard, don't make me laugh. If you did a top ten midfielders of all time to have played for Liverpool or Man U, Souness & Gerrard would be no 1 & 2. They've never had better than them two in their history.

When Souness recently criticized Pogba. Bunch of their fans clueless fans were claiming they Souness was just a dirty clogger from 80's, no where near as good as Pogba, No one remembers him, Never won a world cup etc etc.

He was the engine of the most dominant team in Europe for a decade, could do it all. Has the same number of European cups as Manchester United won in all of thier history. But somehow he is worse than fucking Pogba.

I believe the new narrative is that the virus break allowed Ole to impart his high level tactics on the team and because Pogba is back they are the best positioned for the final 9 games. Plus Bruno Fernandes. Because.
