    Try not to fall in the mcm trap of having to twist things I've said to make it sound like my predictions weren't accurate.
    Oh look, let's search in kalel hart and de Gea into the search engine for some lols..

    I'll concede De Gea is now looking like United's best player.

    Lovejoy's everything that's wrong with football!

    (well actually no, but I don't like him and I resent the way he's been earning money despite having no appreciable talent. Lovejoy is one of the many things wrong with telly!)

    Eto'no thank you
    To be fair, he's not bad as a third/fourth choice whilst we wait for Origi next year. I was against it as our only signing up front, but with Balotelli coming in, it seems like a sensible move.

    edit: plus it's Goal and the Metro so is probably totally fabricated anyway.
    I don't think it could be described as good business. If he isn't the highest paid player in the team he won't be far off.

    The arrival of Mario at least brings us one of my favourite ever Daily Fail captions:


    Arrival: Mario Balotelli (in the red T-shirt) gets out of a car at Melwood ahead of his medical at Liverpool

    Ahh, he's the one in the red t-shirt...

    Even I can't not crack a smirk at that one :)

    You were utterly wrong about him though.

    Looking at a list of the players in United's squad is a bit of an eye opener. So much unfulfilled potential and wasted money. De Gea, Rooney, Mata and Van Persie are good, the rest vary from average to so shit no one will actually pay anything at all for them (Anderson). Clearly they have the cash but it's obvious that the lack of Champions League has been a bigger hindrance than they or anyone else expected. It will take years of rebuilding and that's only if they stick with Van Gaal and don't resort to Giggs when things don't improve instantly.

    Supposedly Balotelli is accepting a 50% pay cut to move to Liverpool...

    If this transfer doesn't happen now I'm going to be in bits.

    Can we stop with this no Champions League being a hindrance nonsense? It's fucking retarded.

    What about all the other years we've had CL football and not been able to attract the players we've been after? And how do you explain the likes of PSG, Monaco, City and Anzhi getting huge names to join when they had no CL football?

    MONEY MONEY MONEY MONEY MONEY MONEY MONEY

    Just because United have a lot of money, doesn't mean the Glazers are particularly willing to part with it. When United are on direct competition with other clubs, they're not prepared to pay the premium to get them.

    Have you thought it might be a lack of Europa League that's hindering Utd?

    Spurs fans - chances of Davies starting tomorrow?

    Liverpool fans - chances of Can starting tomorrow?

    Arsenal fans - chances of Giroud starting tomorrow?

    Hull fans - chances of Rosenior starting tomorrow?


    I may need to make a few FF changes...


    Cheers!

    Walcott's not back until the end of the month, right? So Sanchez will likely play on the wing instead of him, so Giroud will probably start. I think. But I'm not an Arsenal fan, just a FF player.

    Slim I'd say. Didn't start the first game and by all accounts was a bit suspect on Thursday. I think he'll have to win his place from Rose.

    Shouldn't be too hard though :)

    I'd be surprised if Giroud starts.

    He's better than Sanogo, surely? Sanogo has never scored a Premier League goal for Arsenal.

    Yeah, that didn't stop Sanogo starting against Palace and City. Giroud looks well below par, fitness wise. But he's a weird one, cos he generally looks a bit shit all the time. I have no idea tho.

    Really enjoyed the Match of the Day documentary, brought back some golde memories.

    And yeah Can probably won't start even though he should.

    Damn that sorcerer! Twenty gold pieces and Iím wankered on Rohypnol.

    Rosenior won't start tomorrow.

    Probably the same line up as against QPR (except Quinn or Meyler for Snodgrass)

    I'm only just catching up with motd from last weekend (may as well make use if sleepless nights) . How the fuck were Utd reduced to fielding 5 young uns in the squad, 2 on the pitch?

    Not so well written, but it doesn't matter, it's to the point and very honest. Very good.
