    Over the top in the same way Marcus Rashford's shots are.

    Yeah I think ten Hag is a good manager too but that’s just standard Utd for you, so over the top.

    What I’d give for him to be another de Boer, lol.

    Yes that was typically delusional United logic. To compare someone who has only ever won the Eredivise in a one-horse race with someone who'd won literally everything and someone else who'd beaten Germany's one-horse race twice running and reached a CL final despite being tournament underdogs (i.e. what Ajax failed to do) is simply madness.

    I was also surprised at how lightly Thomas Tuchel got off the hook. Given the amount spent in the summer and the players he had at his disposal, a title challenge that ended in November and some poxy vanity international cup won by beating some Saudi team is hardly worth an 8/10.

    Chelsky finished this season 3 pts ahead of Spurs. < chapeau >

    And for those who may seek to say the difference
    was the CL participation, no different to Citeh and
    the Poool, who managed to match that and then
    add 18 pts on top,.

    Balotelli scored 5 on the final day of Turkey's season:


    Wait for the last one...

    ETH has a long long long way to go to even be considered close to Klopp or Pep. He’s not even Conte level.

    He’s more the level of a Arteta, Rodgers or Potter

    At present he could even be considered an Villas Boas circa 2011

    His success has come with the caveat of being with one of the three large fish in a small pond, which Porto and Ajax undoubtedly are when you look at the Primeira Liga or Eredivisie, which allowed them to implement a style of play based on the lessened adversity - but the real test is if they can do that in a different landscape with much greater pressure on them

    He’s a very good manager. But the step up to United, in terms of the difficulty of the PL, the expectations, the big personalities in the squad, is huge. He’ll have dealt with pressure at Ajax of course and has managed to some success in the CL, and we know he can develop players and is tactically sound. But there’s a lot of difference here. Many are saying he’s a guaranteed hit and no doubt he’s a better manager than Ole or Rangnick, but it’s no foregone conclusion.

    Well at the time of writing it was probably bollox, but since the decades of massive losses and the £1.5bn loan seem about to be forgotten, it is actually quite correct.

    When the new owners find that the club needs subsidising to the tune of £1m+ a week, it'll be plenty real enough.

    If Villa pull that off then they've got quite a base for their midfield.
    Makes you wonder about McGinn and Luiz, though.

    Asking people to pay the set price is "stubbornness" now...?

    Whilst City and Liverpool are undoubtedly better, to be fair, they also didnt have both their first team full backs out for most of the season, they didnt sign a £100m lamp post who flopped harder than 9 inch weiner, and they also werent sanctioned by the government and were threatened with closure.
