Who are the 5th most successful club would be a good pub quiz question.

Most wouldn't say Villa I reckon.

Lots of charlies would probably say Man City or Spurs!
Dalglish - Barnes - Beardsley - McManaman - Fowler - Owen - Gerrard - Torres - Suarez - Salah - Mane - Firmino

The World one yes, but not the actual one - you can finish second in the league and qualify for it like we did, whilst the others require both finalists to win another competition.

Ratface has gone full Everton

“What I’m saying is, Liverpool, City, Tottenham, all these clubs have had poor recruitment policies over the last 25 or 30 years at times,” Neville told Sky Bet’s The Big Debate.

“So United are going through one at the moment.

“Eventually they will stumble upon the right recruitment system, the right recruitment people, they’ll get a great manager – hopefully that’s Ole – and they’ll start to win again. That’s going to happen.

“I can guarantee you as clear as day, Manchester United will win again. They’ll probably win the league before Liverpool, in my opinion. And that’s not being disrespectful, they’ll probably win the league before Liverpool.”

But Neville continued: “Maybe not, but I think they’ll win a league before Liverpool.

“They’re more ripe, they’re closer than you think and it’s not as bad as you think. That’s always the way it is.

“And Liverpool, Salah’s going to leave in the next 12 months, I can see it already.

“He [Carragher] knows, he won’t say it. I can see it, you can feel it, you can smell it, you know when a player’s like…”

Salah seems like a genuinely nice and humble guy. But he didn’t travel 8 hours to training every day as a kid to win 1 trophy.

Thank fuck he won his second one with us tonight.

Also of course he's gonna leave eventually - he won't be playing upfront when he's 55.

We may even cash in when it's right for us as a club - but the way in which it used to work (as you say "they always leave") he would have left last summer or this most recent summer and he still didn't.

Not sure why they didn’t exclude the Super Cup and include the UEFA/Europa. The difference would be the same, but one less trophy each.

Rumour is that Pogba is off to Juve as Fernandes is guaranteed to them in January by his agent...

All seems very disorganised if true

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?

Chuckled at this snippet on the BBC Gossip Column today:

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

Presumably the sentence concludes with "...and they've already got more than enough players to perform that role."

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.

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.

Also one thing Neville doesn’t mention is liverpool is a far more attractive club to top players who want to win than united
