BBC doing the traditional Combined XI article before the big game... Except this year it's 2019 Liverpool vs. 2013 Man Utd. I guess they can't bear to have their precious darlings humiliated by a contemporary poll.

Martial has only just returned to training this week after being out for 2 months. Would be crazy to play him so soon.

Some talk that De Gea and even Pogba could feature too. Pogba starting would be absolutely terrible. For them.
No heavy-metal football. Uninspiring team selections. Playing like a team closer to relegation worries

Ole presser is hilarious. Journos finally calling him out on his bullshit.

He was comparing Utd's injuries to when Klopp came in and how he had a lot of injuries too, but now he doesn't. What?
He looked absolutely shook and floundering like a drowning puppy.

Although I can see United's point. If they lose, everyone will say it was expected, so they move on. If they fluke a win, they are ''back'' and so is the ''swaggah''. It kick-starts their season and gives them all a lift, something to crow about and boosts their confidence. They'd even continue to follow in Everton footsteps by declaring a draw as some sort of moral victory.

It's hilarious, my Man Utd supporting friend is adamant that their current position is entirely down to not spending enough even though over the past 5 years they have the 3rd highest gross spend and 2nd highest net spend in the PL.

Apparently we've been lucky with signings, no acceptance or acknowledgement that it's down to proper scouting.

It’s the type of game he would turn up for though thanks to his kings size ego. It’s against the lower teams he can’t be arsed for. I still expect them to have the likes of Pogba and De Gea back risking Marsial would be mad, but they probably have little choice.

They've certainly spent, but spent badly.

I read something this morning that said since Ferguson left they've spent £800m to get into the mess they are currently in. Also, if it was only about spending money, Everton wouldn't be in the relegation zone. They have the highest spend in Europe for any side that hasn't won a trophy in years. Spending is only half the battle. Spending well is the key.

So now I need to watch the whole conference to find out what Jurgen really meant? In between the lines? That line I quoted strikes me as cockines. We have a poor record at Old Trafford as you know. I definitely would not boast before the match over there, despite the fact we are amazing and them utter shite.

Whisky nose accused of taking bribes and match fixing.

Mr. Ferguson accused of "fixing game with agent who gave him £30,000 gold Rolex"

An ongoing trial is investigating football agent Giuseppe Pagliara, who is accused of paying and facilitating a bribe.

A football agent accused of corruption bragged about giving then Manchester United manager Mr. Ferguson a £30,000 Rolex in exchange for fixing a Champions League match, a court heard.

Giuseppe Pagliara, 64, also told an undercover reporter posing as a businesswoman that Sir Alex worked with agents to make money from transfer deals, a jury was told.

The claims were heard during the opening of the bribery trial of Pagliara, fellow agent Dax Price, 48, and Scot Tommy Wright, 53, the former assistant head coach of Barnsley.
Describing one meeting in Manchester in June 2016, prosecutor Brian O’Neill QC told Southwark Crown Court yesterday: “Pagliara launched into what could only be described as a diatribe of Mr. Ferguson… He claimed that he had paid Ferguson before.”

The trial also heard claims about other football figures, including former England manager Steve McLaren, ex-Portsmouth and Spurs boss Harry Redknapp and Cardiff manager Colin Wanker.

Prosecutor Brian O'Neill QC said: "Towards the end of the meeting Pagliara launched into what could only be described as a diatribe of Mr. Ferguson, accusing him of having conspired with Pagliara to fix the result of a football match between Juventus , a club which Pagliara was associated with, and Manchester United in the Champions League for which Pagliara had thanked him with a gold 30 grand Rolex watch.

"Pagliara went on to accuse Mr. Ferguson of having taken money as part of transfer deals. He claimed that he had paid Ferguson before."

Mr O’Neill said that the prosecution did not seek to “malign” other individuals who were not on trial.

Ferguson is widely regarded as one of the best football managers of all time, and has won more trophies than any other manager in the history of football.

During his 26 years at United he won 38 trophies, including 13 Premier League titles, two Champions Leagues and five FA Cups.
Wright, of Barnsley, denies two counts of accepting a bribe.

Pagliara, of Bury, Greater Manchester, and Price, 48, of Sittingbourne, Kent, deny two counts of paying and facilitating a bribe.

Whisky nose accused of taking bribes and match fixing.

Mr. Ferguson accused of "fixing game with agent who gave him £30,000 gold Rolex"

An ongoing trial is investigating football agent Giuseppe Pagliara, who is accused of paying and facilitating a bribe.

A football agent accused of corruption bragged about giving then Manchester United manager Mr. Ferguson a £30,000 Rolex in exchange for fixing a Champions League match, a court heard.

Giuseppe Pagliara, 64, also told an undercover reporter posing as a businesswoman that Sir Alex worked with agents to make money from transfer deals, a jury was told.

The claims were heard during the opening of the bribery trial of Pagliara, fellow agent Dax Price, 48, and Scot Tommy Wright, 53, the former assistant head coach of Barnsley.
Describing one meeting in Manchester in June 2016, prosecutor Brian O’Neill QC told Southwark Crown Court yesterday: “Pagliara launched into what could only be described as a diatribe of Mr. Ferguson… He claimed that he had paid Ferguson before.”

The trial also heard claims about other football figures, including former England manager Steve McLaren, ex-Portsmouth and Spurs boss Harry Redknapp and Cardiff manager Colin Wanker.

That's nearly as daft as saying grobelaar was involved in fixing that 3-3 with united.
"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.

Strikes me as flinging dung.

But is it a sign of how far the armour has slipped that not only is this being raised in court but it is being reported in the mainstream media even though the prosecution 'did not seek to “malign” other individuals who were not on trial'?
