UTD top.

This season is mental.
Bloody well should be. In the last 5 years United have spent about 660m net. Lollerpool have spent about 520m gross and recovered over 400m in the same time period.

I think they'll tonk us next weekend. We've been pap for a while and Pogba will turn up. But then, I still think United should sell him - any player that only turns up for the bigger games isn't fit to wear the United shirt.

Pogba is performing because he and his agent wants a move, then he will put his feet up at the new club too.

If Ole wins the league with that team over this Liverpool side, they should build a statue of him at OT.

Thinking about what united players would get in that (fully fit) Liverpool side... Bruno Fernandes over Gigi Wijnaldum maybe? Amazing how much money they can spend on average players.

Rashford would too I imagine, at least in the squad.

Right now I believe the highest possible points for first is something like 78, so it has been a tough year do far.

Ah bollocks.

When we had largely the same players the "who would get into the city side" discussion went on and hardly any of the lollerpool players would make it. Then we won the league and none of the city players would get in our side.

Man U are in the same situation - "who'd get in the lollerpool side" - none of 'em, maybe rashford. If they win the league it'll be "who'd get in the United Side" - maybe Van Dyke and Mane, the rest are shit.


It's all about confidence. There's not much between them. Man U have the deepest squad depth and huge quality (which you get for 660 million net). They should be fucking winning the league.

Just because they've spent loads of money doesn't mean they've spent well though...

Obviously they should be doing better, but it doesnt work like that. Constant boneheaded decisions by Woodward put paid to that.

I hate this net spend shite as well. Liverpool have spent a fortune, the only reason their net is low is because other clubs are as retarded as United and do things like pay for £145m for Coutinho (worst transfer in football history), and £30m for Rhian Brewster (lol).

Also, Liverpool just buy up all the best players from smaller clubs whose players kick up a stink when Liverpool come knocking so they can't afford to say no to the under value fees.

I bet you do - but the fact is it's the *only* way to measure relative spend of a club.

Liverpool's net spend over the last 5 seasons is about £120m. United's £660m.

That's the fact. Yes, we've spent a lot, but we've also sold a lot. If we hadn't have sold a lot then we wouldn't have been able to spend it.

Money and transfer performance is just as important as on-pitch performance and like it or not Liverpool are doing really well at that (and, clearly, not because you fucking hate liverpool).

FTFY.

Nobody complains when Levy gets a bargain or holds out for a good deal. Tough titties really.


It's also tough titties on Liverpool - we haven't got £660m to blow on players. And this:

Also, Liverpool just buy up all the best players from smaller clubs whose players kick up a stink when Liverpool come knocking so they can't afford to say no to the under value fees.
Is tough titties on everyone below them - and the same for Southampton - tough titties on the lower league clubs that feel hard done by because most of their players would jump for a derisory offer from a bottom half of the table Premier League club. (They'd be queuing up to play for Brighton right now).

It may be unpalatable (and I think it is myself - money hasn't helped the game really IMO. It's still just 11 men belting a ball around - it's just got a fuck of a load more expensive to watch them). But if you're measuring relative financial performance then net spend is the best yardstick we have.

Like it or not, dems the facts.

You don't like VAR cos its ruining the game, but you're happy to be a fan of a club who can scalp the lesser clubs cos they're a bigger brand, because that's just "the way it is". OK.

For the record, I do moan when Stadium FC do the same thing as Liverpool.

I honestly cannot fucking wait until the bigger clubs fuck off to a European Super League.

Clearly you're unable to read through your seething hatred:

Therefore your post should really read "aye Scouse, you feel the same frustrations as me".


Oh. And:

You want them to continue to rape the smaller clubs from a position of even greater financial strength, after trashing the membership of the world's oldest football league because you're bitter?

I mean, I know you don't really give a shit about preserving what game we have left (*cough* VAR *cough*) but I didn't think you'd go that far.

;)

It all died years ago so might as well fuck all the Liverpool and United fans off so I don't have to listen to shite about net spend and how their clubs are better than everyone else because they've got an official tractor partner.

Pretty much why I don't support a premiership side. It's all about money at the top.

There are 72 teams in the league. You're 5 behind us.


I can understand why you're so bitter though. Over the last 5 seasons 14 out of 20 Premier League teams have outspent Lollerpool - including the mighty Bournemouth, Brighton and Wolves.

Southampton though, you've been selling so hard you've actually made a tiny profit!

Imagine if you hadn't sold your best players! Where might you be?! Maybe you'd have reached Leicester's heights! :)
