And yet The Times are saying Man Utd aren't interested in Fernandes as his pass completion stats are too low. Also Rojo and Sanchez apparently both want to leave by the end of the European window.
Interesting..

I’d forgotten Sanchez was still there.

Pogba has 2 years left on his contract now.  I can’t imagine that they will let it run down given his worth and how little he wants to be there.

Looks a bit small time this. We seem to have decided which trophies matter and which don't (eg World Club Cup and the Charity Shield).

Also, what comes under "Euro Other"? There are no UEFA Cups on there, or CWC, and both are arguably more significant than the Super Cup.

Add our three UEFA Cups in there to bump up our total to 46, and our 15 charity shields to take it to 61.
I don't know what their total of 2 for Euro Other is given that they have one Super Cup, one UEFA Cup and one CWC. Add their two CWC titles in any event, their total up to 45. Then add their 21 Community Shields and it's 66.

So yeah. All a bit weird.

I don't mind Neville saying what he says.

He's a partisan and he's saying what he hopes. Its not analysis, its hope.

We have rattled him so much with our success and a league title will break him.

And if Salah does go we'll replace him and finish ahead of United.

Last season he came out with the genius idea that Liverpool should throw the Champions League to concentrate on trying to win the Premiership

Its like a frightened man saying what he prays will happen out loud.

Why anyone listens to Neville and his so called analysis is a mystery to me.

He's a partisan Manc who hates Liverpool and wastes no opportunity to try and stir up a bit of trouble / doubt for Liverpool.
He was the one that started the Karius agenda, he did the same to another of our players too - can't recall which one. His advice about throwing the CL too.

On the one hand I wish he'd shut up because some of our more gullible fans actually listen to him, but on the other hand he's quite entertaining because he massively over estimates his intelligence and ends up more often than not making himself look a tit.

I love the way he says United will "stumble upon the right recruitment policy, as if no planning and forethought goes into it. Once they have exhausted every other way of doing it badly, it fill all fall into place as if by magic. Dream on Neville you dumbass.

United were lucky enough to be able to afford a “system” that wasted money on some spectacular flops which, given the number of expensive players they recruited, went most unnoticed. Ferguson was able to spend a fortune on some right garbage. And wasn’t his most successful side a result of the previous managers’ youth recruitment?

Just to add to that slightly off table of wins, what the hell are Arsenals 2 euro wins?
Anyhow, we are top. With more to come.

They beat Parma to win a Cup Winners Cup in 94. Might have then win the Super Cup (although doubt it if up against that great Milan side). They maybe win an early UEFA/Fairs Cup too.

Manchester United opted against a summer move for Sporting Lisbon and Portugal midfielder Bruno Fernandes, 24, because their scouts felt he gives the ball away too often

That's it Shaqiri, cheers.
Tell you what though, he's got an opinion on everything, loves to advise managers despite his less than stellar efforts so far, the likes of Klopp, Pochettino etc. must piss themselves when on the receiving end of Gary's wisdom. I think Klopp's chucked a bit of sarcasm his way a few times.
I haven't got a problem with him being a Manc fan, the snide attempts to discredit our players or ramp up pressure is when he crosses the line.

He was correct about Mignolet though - he is sat too deep on his legs and his hands for that goal were around his knees too, he gave himself too much to do.

I banged on about it a bit on here with BabuYagu, Mignolet has also got this real flaw in his technique where, after the ball has been struck, he takes a little hop, this totally fucks his dive up as by the time he then moves, the ball is too close for him to do anything  It wasn't just that goal, one of Dele Allis when we lost 4-1 at Wembley, Burnley 1-1, Leicester when Vardy scored are other examples off the top of my head.

Is this the same Neville who said we should bin off the Champions League a year ago?

As with most things he says, it isn’t total bollocks and you can see some of what he’s trying to say. United will probably eventually stumble across a successful formula, but to say that will happen before we win the league is a bit of a bizarre thing to even be thinking about considering the current disparity between the two clubs. When we were out of Europe was anyone amongst us wondering if we’d win our next European Cup before United won theirs? Or did you just want to be back competing again? It smacks of a desperation to pull themselves into our territory which they’re just not in at the moment, and it’s likely to only be a few weeks until that’s visible in the league table. Of course they may win their next league title before we do, it’s not a totally ridiculous comment seeing as we’ve not won one since 1990 and they’ve won shitloads, but it’s a bizarre thing to focus on, out of all the things they could currently be focusing on, considering they’re currently the 6th best team in the league and are out of the CL.

Even Neville himself said at the back end of last season that it would take United 3-4 years to compete again, although admittedly that was  before they announced themselves as ‘BACK’ after the Chelsea game. There’s every chance Liverpool win the title before United, even if Salah does leave we’ve got plenty of other world class players.

The other caveat for anything he says is a huge part of it is to start ‘debate’ and I use the phrase loosely. If I was a united fan I’d be more concerned with getting back into the CL rather than worrying about whether they win their next league title before we do. I’ll give it 2 months until the rest of their fan base is thinking the same. United never were as shit as the tail end of last season made them out to be, which is why I had some hope that they’d get something against City. They’ve always been capable of the kind of result they got on Sunday. The issue they’ll have is when things start going against them and the usual faces react the usual way to it happening, and Maguire and Wan Bissakka won’t be stopping it.

You'll have seen this at Arsenal, there are players that, the first time you see them play for your team, you see what all the hype was about. Saw it with Torres, Mascherano, Virgil and Allisson, you just watch them and go wow, we've got a player here. Admittedly, I only watched the game on telly, so you don't get the same impression as you do in the ground, but I saw nothing special at all from Maguire. He looked slow to turn, was wandering out like a fat 40yr old and didn't get a grip of the defence as Chelsea waltzed through them. If Pulisic had started, the result would have been different I'm convinced.

Its hysterical, they have to big him up because he cost more than the arguably best defender in the world, but they MUST know Utd got rinsed.

Looks a bit small time this. We seem to have decided which trophies matter and which don't (eg World Club Cup and the Charity Shield).

Also, what comes under "Euro Other"? There are no UEFA Cups on there, or CWC, and both are arguably more significant than the Super Cup.

Add our three UEFA Cups in there to bump up our total to 46, and our 15 charity shields to take it to 61.
I don't know what their total of 2 for Euro Other is given that they have one Super Cup, one UEFA Cup and one CWC. Add their two CWC titles in any event, their total up to 45. Then add their 21 Community Shields and it's 66.

So yeah. All a bit weird.

We're the most successful club in England if you don't count Community Shields  ;D

As far as I’m aware, the Community shield is not designated as a competitive fixture by the FA.

I think it is - it is listed under their Competitions, their rules state full strength teams have to be fielded and their website does talk about it like it is meaningful.

that's a bit mad innit? What they going to do if a club decides to play a majority of U23 and squad players, call the game off?

But they also allow 6 subs I think.  Which also makes it appear more of a friendly than they want it to be I guess!

The Charity Shield is even more worthless than the Milk Cup

Proof: fans can remember how many Milk Cups we've won but not the other


Still would have loved to beat City in it the other week though.
Plus it would be nice if we could win everything we're in this season.
High standards like :D
