Bundesliga on its way to become the number 1 championship in Europe.

Maybe, but we need to improve our international marketing and the consistency (aside Bayern).

 

Do you? You just won a WC by investing in German players.

Look what happened in the WC to England, Spain, Portugal and Italy (and to Brazil for similar reasons).

That wasn't a coincidence. It's a trend.

National championships filled with foreigners lead to weak national teams.

Club teams filled with foreigners may work (not always though) but then again where's the pride in winning a CL with over 80% foreigners in the line up?

We might as well start to sell teams to sponsors cause there's nothing Spanish in Real Madrid just as there's nothing English in Chelsea.

I think the examples to follow are Bayern, Barça, Atletico Madrid, Juventus... Teams with a backbone of national players.

The rest are just circus acts.

 

 

I was refering to our clubs in Europe rather than the national team, which is fine. Leverkusen and Schalker are always considered as underdogs from the round of 15 onwards and our teams in Euro League haven't been nearly as succesful as the ones in the champions league.

I still refuse to believe City got out of the group. Doesn't feel right. We must petition to UEFA to immediately to disqualify City and restore order to the world.

maybe now City have broke the curse they can actually go far in the CL. they've always had the team but for some reason they've NEVER performed in the CL until last night.

 

One player who I really noticed last night was Joe Hart. Okay he made one monumental cock-up from a corner but other than that he kept us in the game at times. Always get sh*t when he doesn't perform so credit where credit's due.

Don't ask me how exactly they calculated those probabilities, I don't know. Anyway, looks like we're getting City in the next round.

The probability for that is not even 25% Do the math. Gonna be a different opponent.

he gets all the extra attention because he's english, english players get slammed harder for mistakes/bad games.

Warms the cockles seeing City referred to as just Manchester, it's been a while... a very long while.

 

But we'll still end up with Real Madrid

"one arsene wenger"

 

my god our home support are mongish as it gets, they'll be booing when we get turned over by a decent side next year. I want wenger gone and a couple of easy wins doesn't change that. yes he has built a decent midfield but does he earn 8mil a year to do that? we need a whole team, and when push comes to shove it's not good enough, we need more ambition and less goldfish brain wenger loving fans that think we'll win the title every year then when we suffer a meltdown and finish fourth claim it is success.

 

there is no shame in coming fourth but when it is the limit to your ambition when your the highest paid club manager in the world with a huge transfer kitty it is not enough. sick of wenger's arrogant comments too, and f*ck of with the "leetle beet jaded" and "great mental strenth". supporting this club does my head in sometimes, sky constantly slagging off the anti-arsene sentiment throughout the game, they'll be sticking a knife into our sh*t defense when we done my united, city and chelsea and the big cl sides in the new year and saying wenger keeps making the same mistakes, yet apparently we're the ones who are fickle? feck off

Can't wait for the game today. Apparently James Wilson will be starting up front with van Persie, big game for him but he's earned the chance.

Seems rumours were right, James Wilson get's a start. But why the f*ck isn't Herrera playing? Eh I don't get it :wtf:

 

United XI: De Gea, Valencia, Jones, Evans, Young, Carrick, Fellaini, Mata, Rooney, van Persie, Wilson.

Not at our best today but still win 3-0. Great to beat them scousers!

 

David De Gea is the best goalkeeper in the world no doubt. Excellent again.

Don't know what you find funny about that? Have you seen De Gea this season unreal saves.

 

But then again you're another United bandwagon hater so I don't find it that surprising.

That was the most enjoyable game I've watched in a long time. So good to see the quick counter attack back in our game again too, like the good old days of Rooney, Ronaldo and Park.

 

And Mata's goal was never offside

It was the "no doubt"-part of your sentence that amused me.

My opinion no need to get your knickers in a twist. And I'm definitely not the only one saying this, everybody says Neuer because of his World Cup performances. Granted he's an amazing keeper but the defense Neuer has and the defense De Gea has is a different story.

 

But anyway chuffed with the win. Only 5 points off City and 8 off Chelsea, get through this Christmas period hope that City and Chelsea drop a few points here and there you never know...

De Gea is not the best keeper in the world. On current form perhaps he might be, but a period of playing really well doesn't make you the best. It's about your overall level and having consistency over a long period of time. De Gea doesn't have that yet. He's a very good shot stopper, but there are areas he still is behind other top GK's like his command of the box and claiming crosses. Neuer, Courtois and a couple of others are better than him imo, but De Ge is becoming one of the best and he is up there.

If you could name another keeper better than De Gea at the moment then go ahead.

You must be stuck in 2012. De Gea is perfectly fine for coming out for corners now, he struggled when first joined but now he's fine. I disagree with Neuer and Courtois being better than him. If only De Gea had the defense Neuer or Courtois have.

 

The saves he's pulled off this season and even last season is just unbelievable. He's well on his way being the best United keeper of all time alongside the likes of the big Dane and van der Sar etc.

Nah he's got a way to go yet before he's as good as Lindegaard.

There's so much more to the modern role of a goalkeeper than only being a good shotstopper. I don't like Neuer, but he is the best gk around. He just has it all. He pulls off great saves plus he's very good with his feet aswell. He participates in defending and is big factor in build up play. The guy's a beast.
