But for real, having watched the game yesterday, Man United couldn't even get out of their half for like most of the game. Literally everyone was behind the ball and even then, Man City were too good with their possession based game to get past them. Honestly, if it wasn't for De Gea, it should have been another Liverpool 5-0. But being a Man City fan, I'm all for Ole staying at Man United at the moment.

nah can't sell Shaw and honestly he ain't bad. He had a shit game against City but I think he has been half decent against other teams. Defo need to sell maguire tho. And they need varane in asap.

varane is injured right?

shaw legit uses his performances in the euros as his hype man.

If united bought bitcoin instead of Harry Maguire, they'd get a better return on investment

When I think about it, the analogy I thought of when watching City is that they're like a swarm of bees. As soon as a United player got the ball, there were 3 or 4 of them just swarming the player, meaning that most of the time, they had to pass it back, kick the ball out or just clear it up the field. Honestly, if they just had a decent striker (doesn't even have to be world-class), they'd be so much clinical this season.

I'm pretty sure we offered him like 150 million or something stupid? I still don't get why any manager wouldn't take that sort of money. He legit could have built a new Tottenham team with that money, which he desperately needs to. Honestly, without Kane and Son, they'd be nowhere at the moment.

Yh, it really doesn't make sense but if that's how he operates, then that's how he operates, I guess. If he isn't willing to accept money when releasing players, why would he be willing to spend money on new players, especially now they have Conte as their new manager, who's going to need a lot of new players, which will inevitably mean spending money from the club's own pocket. I get he's a world class manager, but unless they get new players, I can't seem them finishing in the top 4, especially considering Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea also have world-class managers but a much stronger squad. Even teams like West Ham (who are doing unreal at the moment), Leicester (who have always just missed out on Top 4) and you could say even Arsenal with their current form are all contenders for that 4th spot, as the top 3 is pretty much confirmed at the moment, unless something drastic happens.

It still is early doors (still like another 27 games left), so plenty could change from now until the end, but what doesn't look like changing is the Top 3 (Chelsea, City, Liverpool). Even within them, it's so hard to tell who has a better chance of winning the title, because their strengths are so different. Like Liverpool have the wingers who can score 20+ goals this season, Chelsea have probably the best defence and City rule the midfield. So 3 completely different aspects, it really does make it interesting.
