  • Nothing feels as good as fat tastes.
Considering, Moyes was a great signing.
He bought in fellani which is probably their only successful post fergie signing
"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.

A month to get their act together. A long old season awaits. Over by the end of August. But in true Everton fashion they will churn out the league position only matters after 10 games. It's the hope that will kill them. Hahahahahahaha

This season is going to be glorious, canít wait to see them implode. From Pogba to the dross in their squad with huge contacts to the Glazers playing with them on strings, itís all coming to a head.

Nah, I want them to fall into the same mid-table quicksand Everton have been in for 30 years. Never having ANYTHING to play for, not promotion, not a relegation battle. Nothing.

I hope Ole just loses match after match with everyone saying the table doesn't mean anything yet, then nearing Christmas they will realise they are in danger of being pulled into the relegation zone and bring in Giggsy. Come March they have no choice but to call up Big Sam in a desperate bid to stay up.

I don't know, I think they need some hope. Maybe pogba sticks around and they continue to bully the odd team enough to stay within touching distance of top four. Occasionally they rack up a big scoreline and people dream of the ferguson days and claim they'll be a force when they find their consistency, but it never comes and they fall short again, with the fans blaming the owners and claiming ole needs more money.

Won't be him. Too much sunk cost with him with club/famous ex players and manager/fans. Have to allow that to fade enough into the medium-term memory. Maybe towards the end of the season.

Lukaku is an interesting one because his goalscoring record is really good and he scores goals left, right and centre for Belgium. Sometimes it just takes a change of scenery for a player to refind himself. He's only 26, so should have at least 5 or 6 good years left in him, but that £75m valuation probably is quite difficult for clubs to stomach. If he was available for 50m he'd be a no brainer in my opinion.

Bet he's on that clause that Woodward loves where they can sack him cheaper when it's mathematically impossible to get to top four. November sounds about right.

Although it was before my time, I always thought it was the Munich Air disaster that put Man United into the public consciousness more than anything else. From what I've been told by people older than myself, and what I've read and heard over the years, football and the world in general was different back then. There wasn't the kind of tribal hatreds we see today and, quite rightly in my opinion, the whole country got behind United after the appalling disaster at Munich. Apparently, many, many people vowed to follow the club from then on. After what happened to the club/team, it's no wonder that so many people had deep sympathy for them and developed an affinity for them which endured long after. Coming back from that terrible tragedy to win the European Cup in '68 was remarkable, and cemented them into the public consciousness permanently.

I don't think any right-minded people would have resented the attention placed upon them back in those days. Where resentment did finally set in was in the 70s and 80s when United were an ailing, rudderless shambles. Relegated by the club then known as Manchester City on their own patch in '74. At best they were a plucky cup side, but mostly they were an absolute joke. A laughing stock, yet still full of arrogance. While teams like Liverpool were sweeping all before them at home and abroad, those serial losers and also-rans grabbed the headlines. Clubs like Forest did amazing things, yet United got unwarranted headlines. Everton bagged two titles, and although it was a third rate (now defunct) trophy at the time, they also won a European trophy. An FA Cup too, yet the shambolic Man United would still get the headlines from a sycophantic and fawning media. The media would built them up and declare what they were going to do ... whilst the clubs that were actually doing great things were getting overlooked in the recognition and headlines department. United and their whole media machine were just the gobby loudmouths who amounted to little of substance back then. Think Gallagher brothers today.

Luckily for United, Ferguson arrived on the scene to eventually instill some substance into what had become the myth. They got it right just as Sky were hijacking the game. Hype, bullshit and bling. They were made for each other. The hype around United went into overdrive. Much of the headlines were actually deserved through the Ferguson era, but a lot of it was also pretty sickly. It's a bit like how the press think everyone wants to hear and see what Katie Price is doing, so they will publicise every tiny detail as though it was an earth-shattering story. Facts are, with United and Price, the only people who give a shit are their actual fans. For the rest, it's a major turn-off.

These days it's actually funny seeing them desperately trying to show they remain somehow relevant when their biggest rivals are European Champions for the 6th time, and their Abu Dhabi neighbours are busy purchasing the domestic silverware. The headlines they get are looking all the more silly too, usually centering on some immature antics of their 'star' players. Facts are, there isn't really much to report on at OT anymore other than their decline. Their headlines make useful wrapping for your fish and chips, but that's about it.

Best post about them ever.  In spades.

It's crazy though - it honestly wouldn't take that much to make them competitive again, but somehow they keep on making the worst possible decision time and again.  Glorious.

Ole's strategy is going to be to win games by saying 'We're Man United. This is Man United. Man United. We're Man United.'

On the pitch the players are going to win by telling opposing players 'We're Man United. This is Man United. The biggest Man United in the world' every time they threaten to score.

That will stop opposing players from trying to score because Man United.

It will never get boring to see them in the state they're in now. What we want is the occasional false dawn kind of thing like beating PSG or going on a run of wins followed by complete morale and spiritual destitution and suffering as they collapse into uselessness again and again and again

I could never get bored of this. They are getting back to their normal level now. All mouth and no trousers.

The media will still fawn all over them, and they'll still bang on about how big they are and what they're going to do. Their players will still be out of shape and unprofessional bigtime charlies, and other teams will pick up the trophies regardless. Long may this continue. Now Ferguson has gone, we all have our United back.  :)

Got to say, this last season was almost back to the heady days of Moyes and all the more hilarious for it. It followed a similar pattern as well, with them looking clueless all season and eventually sacking the manager and appointing a club legend, only this time, he had half a season at the helm instead of four games. and there's more to come.

They're responsible to some extent. Their relentless drive to earn money dragged the rest of the league with them and eventually made the PL the most important league in the sport. That drew Abramovich for some necessary reputation laundering and then everyone was at it.

Not that Liverpool (etc) are squeaky clean of course, but the Mancs were by far the driving force behind it

Oh, I agree with you there. Absolutely.

I just mean 'proper' in that they spend what they are earning, rather than spend what a country gives them to spend. The money United spend was generated by the sport itself, as is Liverpool's.

As far as the money madness the game has been consumed by is concerned, United were its pioneers.

I had to double check as I assumed they meant £180, which seemed a fair price.

But no. One hundred million of the finest English pounds, plus another eighty million of them for good measure.

I mean surely that makes our squad worth about £8 billion?
