United are only 6 points off 4th place (2 wins). Ok, they won't win it this year, but Champions League is still in their sights for next year.

Wouldn't write them off just yet. They always get better after Christmas Smile

erm, unless the calendar on my phone is knackered it is after Christmas, and they're still EDITED...

Moyes inherited a very average team that had lacked investment and needs a complete overhaul. Even allowing for that though, who thought they'd be out of the running for all competitions by January and scrapping for a Euafa cup place? I do think he should be given more time but come the summer the MU board will have a tough decision to make, do they back Moyes and let him invest in new players, and then potentially have to sack him by Christmas if results havent improved (with the next manager then having to rebuild again), or sack him in the summer and let the next manager choose the summer transfers?

I'm not sure which bit was more comical, the part where he says he wants to report a crimw or when he asks if she can ring him back!. Seriously though, surely thay should trace a few of these kno8heads, just to make the point that folks should stop callin 999 for nonsense things.

On the footy note, after the appaling penalty shoot-out the other night, I reckon we should get Fergie back in on the playing staff as I doubt at his age he'd be able to hoof the ball over the bar so at least the penalty would be on target Wink

They really aren't very good are they. 

Is it now time for Gollum to be sacked?

Nope.  Not Moyes' fault that they can't string two passes together. The signs were there at the end of last season, Fergie knew what he was doing baling out when he did.

 

I had to turn it off tonight before I kicked the screen in.

 

So far in this latest round of Champions League and Europa League not one English team has scored a goal, let alone win a game. Coincidence, or is "the greatest league in the world" not that great?

Can I just add.

 

"HA HA HA HA HA HA HA !"

 

It is surely a joy to watch.

Everton have traded up managers, Man Utd have inhereted a form of football that should have died with the leather casey. Tedious, dull, thump.

Srick with Moyes next year and everyone knows how bad they are and they might well be fighting for relegation...with any luck Smile

 

 

Other than that...Well done you Greeks Smile Keep it up second leg. I'll be watching.

It is the "greatest league" in that there is real competition. It's especially good this year. The title is no where near decided, even with the oil and blood money involved.

Which other league is better?

United are playing exactly the same way that they finished last season under Ferguson, i.e. very average. It's amazing really how we are above Everton in the table currently.

Have you seen how tight the Spanish league is? With three fantastic footballing sides?

I have. But then there is a 13 point gap to 4th.

10 points separate the top 5 in the premier league. And more importantly for this comparison, Man Utd who won last year are in 6th, another 5 points behind.

And perhaps even more importantly, the top 3 teams have played 25 games each and are on 60 or more points.

The top team in the EPL has played 27 and is on 60. 

This shows a smaller win percentage. Far more results in England "don't" go to the favourite...

Makes for a very exciting league imo. Much more so than in Spain.

RE: Are Man U Rubbish Without Fergie?

Don't worry Manchester United fans. Give Moyes time to settle in and I am sure that he will win the league for you next season.

My prediction:



1) Manchester United

2) Nottingham Forest

3) Derby County

4) Middlesborough
