Main Weekly Football Thread - THE COUNTDOWN


#801

This is what the Guardian are predicting. That midfield :sweat_smile:

#802

that’s hilarious. Can’t wait to stuff them.


#803

Fred is gonna be such a flop


#804

Still know ridiculously little about him or what he does. Could be brilliant


#805

Take Mata out and put smalling in and that’ll be the team 5–3-2


#806

Saw Shakhtar versus City last season and thought their midfield was absolutely mint, was certain we’d avail ourselves of one of their Brazilians come Jan/July. Fred was good but not the stand-out that night.


#807

Mental how many players not at the World Cup have managed to get inured


#808

Injured


#809

It’s almost as if we’ve got an awfully injury prone squad


#810

Whilst Danny Ings is initially a loan, Southampton are committed to a £20m perm deal next summer. Plus Liverpool get 20% of any future sell on. I’m glad we gave that a miss.


#811

Bernard was the real old bloke to sign


#812

Cracking reveal for Santi Cazorla


#813

Not the most, just the most costly…


#814

Rumours he was round Burnley way today but apparently he was just up here doing some kids’ summer soccer school


#815

Great result for us. Horrendous game, backs-to-the-wall stuff, and Istanbul Basaksehir had about 12 fans, all of whom were 12. But can’t wait for next week, 20 years ago we were losing 4-1 at home to Bury.

Zenit and Feyenoord both got stuffed 4-0!

#817

Ok seems strange that he’d be up there two days before the season starts.


#818

In other Europa League news, I went to see The New Saints v FC Midjtlland this evening. Actually pretty entertaining game for a fiver. The Danish champions won as you might expect, but TNS have them a good go. Should’ve scored in the first half, really.


#819

Interesting details here


#820

I didn’t really pick up any details there? Most of that could’ve been lifted from a utd forum tbh. In reality I don’t think the board know enough about football to veto Jose’s signings, as logical as the idea that we don’t want to spunk 50mio+ on 30 year olds is
