Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

I think you might have missed the sarcasm.

Liverpool are the most successful English team ever, their 2 extra European Cups far outweigh Man Utd's 1 extra League title and no team comes close to those two. Man Utd (and Chelsea) are bigger clubs now though, but that could change in 5-10 years if Liverpool have a resurgence.

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

interestingly isnt going to be at the first match of the tour, hopefully he is concluding a deal for Lucas Moura

Mike Phelan will take charge of the team in Oslo, with Sir Alex on "other club business". SAF to join in Gothenburg.

#mufc tour squad: De Gea, Lindegaard; Evra, Ferdinand, Jones, M Keane, Vidic; Anderson, Carrick, Nani, Powell, Lingard, Scholes, Valencia, Young; Berbatov, Hernandez, Kagawa, Macheda, Rooney, Welbeck

Did I actually just stick up for Liverpool fans?
Faraday was quoting a tweet from that Chelsea meltdown twitter account.

We can only hope, only reason over the last few years SAF not gone with the squad for games is to either conclude deal/s or/& to look at players live in person that his seriously interested in. David de Gea is an example of this, Kagawa another. Normally if SAF watches a player his interested in play live & talk surrounding player then theres decent bet SAF is trying to conclude a deal. And He did watch Lucas play at Sports Direct Arena v New Zealand few days back.

It would be interesting to see if Lucas does arrive how much the overall deal will come to? Sao Paulo want 30M so be interesting see if SAF actually does pay that exact amount for 19 soon to be 20 year old Brazilian. I know lot Man Utd fans who think money spend on him could & should be spent elsewhere (CM & LB) but how often does a player of Lucas quality & potential come available who actually WANTS to join us? Plus his on rumored low wages is a bonus (Around 33K a week).

He would also offer us something different & very important which been overlooked which is the ability to run with the ball at great pace at players or/& into space either out wide or through the middle. Something that donít have, Toni direct RW who holds width who likes attack the LB, Nani is blend of indirect & direct but often slows done tempo of our play around final 3rd though is to either take shot or pass when playing against packed defenses playing slow passing game wont get us in behind a defense. Young add width to LW but cuts inside on to right which means opening gone & like Nani looks for pass inside when opposition team now got back in to plug up gaps in there defense. Way in which Lucas plays suggests SAF wants speed up our attack (Yippee!). Lucas doesnít play a slow game his always bursting forward with flair, pace & dribbling so if we made Lucas play slower type game with us it would hinder him as take away what his best at & our ability as team to get in behind defenses quickly imo. Which why think Kagawa signing makes alot of sense as his someone whose able pick passes out through middle as CAM/no10 with great movement as well.

Playing front 4 of say Lucas RW - Kagawa CAM - Nani LW - Rooney CF, means that have lot movement in final 3rd & all 4 players can play at high tempo while all 4 have in own way the ability open up teams which is made easier if doing so playing against packed defense (Last season we struggled break down teams who did this). Think this deal actually makes more sense then it doesnít. We have 3 wingers (I donít count Giggs as one who can play there each week) we Have Toni on RW, Young LW & with potential of Lucas arrival another RW which means Nani go to LW to compete with Young with Toni & Lucas competing on RW, its a squad game now & its healthily competition for places as well. With a potential signing of Lucas it shows maybe an indication of what SAF wants to do for upcoming season in term of the attack which I think an exciting one imo.

Before anyone suggests that I think Lucas > a CM or/& LB signing. Im not, im just suggesting why SAF is trying to sign Lucas & what bringing him in could do for our attack. I do think we need a LB & 1 CM & as T-C has suggested im a little surprised SAF not going after Sahin at Real Madrid. Maybe SAF doesnít feel should go after player who has struggled for fitness & form since joining Real Madrid & might struggle to do the same at another top team? Which I disagree with as look at Owen, he was injury prone but we never questioned his ability to score goals. So we shouldnít knock Sahin over 1 bad season when his still same player who won German League in 2011 with Dortmund as a key part of that team & hence why he got move to Real Madrid in the first place. Love to know the reason why looks like not trying to buy Sahin actually.

I've always wondered if Di Matteo can bring an attacking flair and DAT BALL POSSESSIONS~1!! to Chelski. Oh well, this is just a pre-season game.

It's obvious sarcasm, look at the article he quoted as well as the smiley. Jesus christ it's not that hard to detect!
