Firminho most overrated player in the league apparently and Salah a fraud. It's a miracle we have managed all these wins with such shite players  ;D

The most overrated underrated player in the world is our Bobby.

Indeed and even ignoring the dire situation where an owner disastrously overstretched themselves, you only have to look at the wage levels and inflated sponsorships of City to see that they wouldn't be left in a sustainable position if their current owners got bored and decided to sell up.

Yep. LFC is completely financially independent and it shows, and it's not United's debt that has put them on their arse, but the personnel at the top.

and if you point out to them that being as all our players are frauds, then Jürgen Klopp must be an even greater manager than we all know he is. And they'll find a way to make out he's rubbish too  ;D

What do you mean? Everyone knows the league is shit this year. That's the real reason we are blowing everyone away.

Last season the league was fine though. It was the CL that was shit. The year before and then this year the CL is back to being good.

I still think there is a decent player in there to be honest, but we've passed that point now for sure.

'Wijnaldum' made me laugh  ;D


One of their analysts was on a sporting analytics zoom conference in Ireland last week. 
 He said that Manchester United have a bought-on-expenses copy of Football Manager in the office so they can get player height for youth players when prepping for preseason/tour opposition.

I think what's happened here is somebody at United played Football Manager last year, signed AWB, Maguire and James in the game, and won the Premier League in the game. Then they thought "oh brilliant, I've cracked it", signed AWB, Maguire and James in real life, and now that they're still shit they're blaming Football Manager for lying to them.

How could they leave anyway? They'd want a billion quid for an asset that has £400m of debt. Even a Sheik wouldn't touch that proposition.

The Glazers want to own United for a long time, they were only prepared to offer Saudi Arabia a 20 per cent stake during talks last year

There are very few potential buyers in the world who could afford what the Glazers would demand

The Glazers’ ownership has cost the club £1.5 billion in interest, debt and other outgoings

Goes into other detail about Rock of Gibraltor and the "Red Knights" and fans wanting to buy the club

It's down to the manager nobody in their right mind would want to play for Man United while Ole is in charge, if Sancho goes there in the transfer window he could easily end up becoming another Carlton. He's better staying at Dortmund for another year, wait for United to hire a top class manager or wait until Barcelona or Real Madrid become interested in him.

thing is if they left barring a sheikh/bezos coming in a decent chunk, if not all, would likely be debt loaded onto the club or it’d be a consortium of loads of people so good luck trying to get much done there

See Utd taking out £150m loan due to covid-19, probably to buy players. All their fans want Glazers to sell etc, but who would buy their club for the £3bn they would want?

In a way the day FSG want to sell will be very difficult for them aswell imo. Same for Arsenal and Kroenke.  Why buy a multi billion pound club when you can buy say a Newcaslte and turn them into a billion pound club.

Also the amount of people who could afford to buy a club for billions are very few and far between. I think these owners the day they come to sell will have to get real.

They will as we were bought at the Newcastle end of the pricing and been increased in value, but even then it probably won't be to the extent of these 2-3bn valuations, it seems more likely that they'd make their fortune back by selling off a chunk of the club.
