Why is it that Liverpool looks the club that's trying to prove it has what it takes to be one of the best clubs in the world... and Arsenal looks like it's done a goddamned thing at all?

Arsenal is spreading wider than Stormy Daniels with a fresh $20 in her hand.

Arsenal with their typical laissez-faire attitude, fucking wallowing around waiting for one of the best clubs in the world to just hand them fucking opportunities. Pool is a much better squad, yes, but Arsenal's lack of ambition is fucking bullshit.

p.s., David Luiz is a fucktard. I actually wish Roy Keane would come out of retirement to batter this soft squad to pieces.

Nothing at all has changed at Manchester United, if anything they look worse than they did last season. If Solskjaer is still there at Christmas I'll be surprised, he might be a club legend for them but he's totally inept as a manager, he just talks about the United teams of old, the United way and all that bollocks and I read somewhere that he won't park in the managers spot out of respect for SAF, how true that is I don't know but utterly pathetic if it is.

I think Utd NEEDED two CMs of some kind, and a top class right-sided forward.

Milinkovic-Savic, Bruno Fernandes, and someone like Nicolas Pépé who went to Arsenal, would have been ideal. I see no reason why we can’t spend big on at least two players in January anyway, the normal excuse is that they’d be exempt from the Champ’s League, but we’re not in that anyway.

A £50 bet on Solskjaer losing his job by Xmas would have been perfect straight after we beat Chelsea 4-0. You’d have got good odds. The sad thing is, I like Solskjaer and I don’t think this is his fault. Our midfield is awful and I don’t think he gets the backing he needs.

Any manager that continually picks Jesse Lingard in the starting 11 has to take their fair share of the blame when results inevitably are shit.

Since they beat PSG theyve won 3 of 15 games :lol:

Was bizarre to give Solsjkaer a 3 year contract, failed cardiff manager from the norweigan league what was he gonna turn down a 1 year contract?

Dont get why Ed Woodward is still in charge of football stuff, apparently hes great commercially and that but hed be even better at making money from that if they werent a complete fucking mess football wise

Not convinced Maguire is anywhere near as good as most people think either

The three year contract was somewhat understandable in that it wasn't long enough to become a problem if results went bad but at the same time a one year deal would lead to constant speculation about the managers future which could undermine his authority in the dressing room.

I personally never felt Ole was right for the job. He strikes me as wanting to be everybody's mate, the fans, the players etc. That is exactly the type of thing United don't need at this stage.

Agree that Woodword needs to get out of the footballing side of things and more than any other appointment at the club a Director of Football is needed in order to establish what it is from a footballing perspective the club want not what each manager lasting a few months demands.
