Did everyone except our fans miss TAA's pass to Origi on Friday?

This narrative is just hilarious to me. Basically every highly rated fullback over the past 5-10 years has been elite on the ball.

To be fair, from the broadcast angle it looks nothing special (except accurate).
Oh it comes to Divock Origi... he's won the European Cup for Liverpool! The man who cut down Barcelona has taken Tottenham down in Madrid! And it's dreamland worrying times for Liverpool Football Club. Shame really.

TAA has had an assist in our last 5 Premier League fixtures in a row.

One more in the match v Soton and he'll tie the record of 6 in 6 for the Premier League. Of course those who hold the record are all attackers. He's the only defender in the group.

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…”

He's admitting there that they have the wrong recruitment system, the wrong recruitment people and an average manager and pinning his hopes upon them eventually ''stumbling'' across the right recruitment system, people and also a great manager. They got very lucky once when they became Ferguson FC, but they are back to just being Man United now.  :wave

When you discount all those things, you realise he's essentially saying they only have hopes of becoming any good because they are easily one of the richest clubs in Europe. At least it's coming to terms with how their legacy was built from the early 90s

He’s babbling nonsense trying to convince himself. Man Utd will get back to winning ways eventually, but it won’t happen any time soon because they have a shite manager, a mediocre squad, and a negative cloud over the club. As for the Salah stuff, I don’t know what his agenda is there but he clearly has one.

You can see what Neville is saying to be honest. Our recruitment policy has been bang on the money for 3/4 years and we haven’t won it. And we probably won’t while Pep is here - not our fault it’s just the restrictions of our wallet compared to theirs.

United on the other hand, have comparable funds to City - it’s just they’ve spent it really badly. And they probably will correct it. Sometime. And probably before we win a league title.

As for Salah, I don’t expect anything different from him than I did from Torres, Alonso, Suarez, etc, etc. So again I don’t think what Neville is saying is that OTT.

Yeah I imagine plenty of our older fans also thought that we would just 'correct it' after 6 years without a league title in 1996. Doesn't mean it's going to happen. I also think the league is more competitive now than it was.

You can see what Neville is saying to be honest. Our recruitment policy has been bang on the money for 3/4 years and we haven’t won it. And we probably won’t while Pep is here - not our fault it’s just the restrictions of our wallet compared to theirs.

So what on earth does make you and Neville think that the red Mancs will win the title ahead of City? Given that they have more resources than them, and given that they're miles a better side, even if we go with your and Neville's logic, City are already in the ascendancy. Silva is the only one retiring at the end of the season, and even Aguero has still several years left in him while they have Jesus in their ranks and can more than likely sign any top class centerforward later on. The rest of their side has at least 5-6 years at the highest level left in them [Ederson,Bernando Silva,Sterling,De Bruyne,Rodri,Sane,Stones,Laporte], that's the core of their group, in fact all of it. The players who are there are miles better than the the Red Mancs and will be regardless of who they sign in the foreseeable future [in the next couple of years]

They would have to have a dramatic decline from top to bottom, to be surpassed by the Mancs.

The likelihood of that happening the nearer feature is bleak, that's another 4,5 years and it's been 7 years since they won the last league title already.

So I am not even talking about winning it before us, it's more to do with them winning it ahead of City.

Wishful thinking by his part and I am not sure what exactly you're thinking falling for that same type of logic.

As for Salah, I don’t expect anything different from him than I did from Torres, Alonso, Suarez, etc, etc.

So what happens when Pogba leaves the Mancs? All of the world class players are just lining up to join them? Alonso left after a clear disagreement with Benitez who tried to sell him the season prior his departure. Torres left us while we were fighting in mid table mediocrity without having won a single trophy during his time here and Suarez did as well, having seen us just challenge once while he was at the club and not winning anything worthy .

None of that can be applied to Salah, of course the are no guarantees that he stays, but we also aren't a one man team, we have several world class players in our side which we didn't have ini any of those scenarios

Because football is about money money and more money. And spending it well. The logic is really simple. They have resources to compete with City, we don’t. They haven’t used theirs well.  We squeezed every ounce out of the squad to get 97 points. City probably could squeeze another 5-7 points out of theirs.

Re Salah, Pogba leaving United has nothing to do him at all. That was a pure straw man on your part.

Edit: also re Salah. Players come, players go. I really don’t care about the individuals anymore. They are not fans like me and you and everyone else on here. They are all mercenaries that do and say the right things until the decide the want more money/win things/new challenge/better weather. 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.

One thing you will discover is that life is based less than you think on what you've learned, and much more than you think on what you have inside you from the very beginning

Realistically speaking, right now the only place that Salah would go that are arguably a step up on us would be City and we'd never sell to them.
