    I think that totally overlooks the fact that all of those players are perfectly capable of playing 50-60 games a season. Assuming that at some point we get 2 AMs injured we easily swap to the 433.

    Excuse me if I appear to gloss over the complexity of your argument, because I'm getting very confused by it and it would seem the above point is the deal breaker for you. So in essence Man City and Utd are ****ed because they only have 4/5 AMs and 5 CMs. But Chelsea are more ****ed because we only have 3 CFs and 5 CMs? I don't understand that. I instinctively think it's bullshit, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. The way I see it is that we couldn't possibly entertain having more than 5 CMs, 6 AMs and 3 CFs for the system we want to play and that within that group there is an enormous degree of positional crossovers and tactical flexibility to allow for rotation and the absence of any particular individual. I also really wouldn't want the club to damage the development of any under 23 Y.O. player by keeping them around for a possibly League Cup appearance or the possibility of 2 to 3 starts in March/April.
  3. Non Chelsea: Premier League

    Why wouldn't they be on their shortlist? Why wouldn't the biggest English club have a long list of possible upgrades on very clear weaknesses in their squad? It makes absolutely perfect sense to me, and it's irrefutable that they wanted a leftback (Baines or Coentrao), an attacking midfielder (Thiago and Fabregas) and another central midfielder (Herrera and Felaini). Deals for Coentrao, Thiago and Herrera were all but completed, no denials have ever been issued by Utd. As far as I'm concerned they've blown this summer transfer window and probably their chances of winning major silverware this season.

    Hi. Barcelona are being very badly run right now at an executive level. Fans turning against directors. There's no real rules against what they've done, and I think everyone really needs to be stronger minded than getting upset by them publically pining for our players. It exposes their weaknesses and undermines who they already have in their squad. Let them keep calling. If David decides he wants out then it will be his decision and his alone and we'll have a replacement ready to spend the money on.
  5. Boxing

    Agreed. Hard to evaluate it when considering he broke his jaw quite nastily so early on. Didn't appear to have any of the power required to faze Beltran, or the superior speed to throw his game off. Should have lost it, but didn't. Tough bastard earned some luck I suppose.
  6. Boxing

    Happened sooner than imagined. 23rd November. Not masses of fights to be made at the weight. Oosthuizen is an awkward, difficult fighter to watch. Stieglitz having a resurgence this year KO'ing Abraham. But not marketable bouts. Ricky Burns has another opportunity to boost his profile tonight. Del Boy's also out to cause trouble again.
  7. Non Chelsea: International Football

    Difference between 1 and 6 was negligible. Created chances and some remarkable misfortune (and indecisiveness) in front of goal.
  8. It certainly is, although I'd never say he was a "poor player". Very athletic and generally competent in multiple positions, helping to keep a system together, but more often than not average execution. There are exceptions to that rule. He'd actually become a very, very good player if those exceptions became the rule.

    I don't think you've quite been paying attention: http://www.dailystar.co.uk/sport/football/336986/Manchester-United-fans-call-for-Ed-Woodward-to-be-sacked http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/manchester-united-edward-woodward-admits-2253711 http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/manchester-united/10282469/Humiliation-for-Manchester-United-as-new-chief-executive-Ed-Woodward-learns-the-hard-way.html Man Utd were slapstick in their open briefings of the press, their use of Daniel Taylor as a media shill, their failed attempts to attract Thiago ("see you in Manchester") or Fabregas ("not even if they tripled my wages"), their perverse bidding process for Fellaini and Baines, their inability to complete a deal for Coentrao (or Herrera). All the time ensuring that everyone knows without question that Cleverley, Kagawa and Buttner aren't quite good enough, while Rooney is jack of all trades and master of none. The rest of the league has improved far more than they have, now lacking the one great talismanic figure that ensured a generally average group of players consistently overachieved. Ferguson WAS Man Utd, do well for him or you're out the door. Moyes? Expendable.
  10. Eden Hazard

    The individual highlights of Hazard's performance highlight that really well. Let it be known that Guardiola's Bayern kicked the **** out of an opponent's skillful attacker.

    The same as us bidding £20m for Rooney. Make the transfer as public as possible and hope the player forces the clubs hand.

    50 usable players if you had your way. Can't believe you can still find a way to moan about this after years of genuinely undersized squads. By all means everything can be improved, constantly, that's the name of the game, but there is no distinct competitive disadvantage this season. 2 for every position and 3 for striker and goalkeeper is exactly right for a 4231/433 side. You also bemoan the academy system when Utd's larger squad is entirely down to it's 8 academy products (maybe 7 if we discount Fletcher due to his illness) that allow much greater flexibility with the new rules.

    I don't understand this concept of "weakness" for selling a player that doesn't want to play for you. You've got an asset that's gone rotten and you need to monetize it. It looks far, far weaker to me for them to be so petrified of letting him go that they'd rather have him sat on their bench than playing for someone else. A "strong" club and manager would say, OK, he wants to leave, no big deal, we'll get a replacement and be the better team without him.
  14. Mikel John Obi

    "seeing Chelsea's inability to create quality chances for years" "Chelsea don't have **** in centre midfield" "Lampard is a scoring accessory midfielder, not a central do-it-all CM" "Lamps (who is really 50/50 when it comes to accurate ground passes however)" "Is KP Boateng the "head's gone," tattooed derp, more athletic version of Mata?" "la-la-la, I can't hear you." "I don't get it, CFC." Todongo is another one that dehumanizes the game, virtualizing it as if it were their own personal game of Football Manager where players perform based on immutable, fixed statistical attributes or to some abstract characteristic of play. He's also someone who appears totally incapable of conversation.

    I spoke to your source earlier, he asked me to tell you to stop pestering him, that he's changed his number and that he's made a request to your agency to have you put on a different paper route.
