Ederson.


Bernardo?


Success rates when buying... incredibly difficult even for the best managers. Baconbastard made huge errors, they all do. Cancelo at 60m looks an appalling punt, Mendy's sicknotism is a function of dreadful luck. Mahrez...popular with some on here but I can't bear him.

The indifferent form of Bernardo and the cliff that Sterling has fallen off are bigger worries.

It's a little bit of a mess right now. Not great but after the incredible successes, it's what is is.

So, Pep is looking to extend.

Where’s that from mate?

I’ve just seen an interview of him discussing being a failure if he doesn’t win the Champions League and he used the phrase “in my final period here” which sounded to me he wouldn’t be extending. Hopefully I’m wrong.

I'm sort of wondering when the contracts of messrs Soriano and Begiristain end

Isn't the whole show tied in? Will there at some point be a complete new regime beneath Khaldoon?

Or maybe money can always compensate for dire British weather?

I read on the net about ‘Pep failure for not winning the CL’ and wondered why he would say such a thing. Led me to watch the presser and soon realised he was having a sarcastic swipe at the media, basically saying ‘You people’ will say I’m a failure even after what he has done so far.

Quite amazes me how they are allowed to spread fake news.

Ah right. I’d class him as a massive success here. But I could careless about the Champions League to be honest.

Pep needs to understand they will always twist his words just keep quiet or say it frank. His just adding fuel to the fire every time he opens his mouth.

Bob realised straight away. When there was 2 games left in 2012 I remember him taking the piss out of them with “no no United have already won the league” and they couldn’t understand it.

I loved Bobby’s passion and he was brilliant with the press and also took no shit from anyone else either .

Baldy is a better manager but a shit head as a person .

Ederson.


Bernardo?

I also wouldn’t be surprised if he had input in KDB before he came to us, having liked him in the German league when at Bayern.


No doubt whatsoever, maybe even Sterling as well.

Let's put it into perspective, Mansour's investment got us here, not Bob or Pep, it was inveivtable we're going to win it. I'm not knocking Bob's achievement, fine, many fans can relate to him but let's not make out he's the messiah. It's my honest opinion so no need to spit the dummy out otherwise you're just another one dimensional city64

You’re right, we should have just stuck with Hughes he’d have won is everything.

Of course Bobby manc didn't spit his dummy out when he didn't get the players he wanted the season after he won the title, that's OK because we can relate to him, he gets us, he gets a pass for that. Didn't Hughes sign club legends Komp and Zabba, you could argue he laid the foundations and didn't get enough time (still think he's shit)?
Do we want winners or managers that get us? You can't always have it both ways

Yes you’re right. It’s all down to Hughes. He signed our best players. He needed more time.

“Do we want winner or managers that get us - you can’t have it both ways” - very weird. It’s like Mancini didn’t win anything. Ferguson got United. Kloop seems to get the scousers.

But you’re right - we can’t have it both ways...

You're right, it's all down to Bobby, where we would be without him, all our success down to him. He won us the title spending peanuts, he promoted youth and built us from scratch. He got us over the line down to sheer passion, nothing to do with buying top players. Nothing to do with Mansours investment, its all him, we should bring him back because he gets us....
As much as I hate bacon face and kloppy, he's not in their league management wise.

Do you always take things out of context to suit your agenda? Your twisting my words and cherry picking.
