Us liberals? A transparent attempt to cover up your racism! Max Clifford would be proud. What next? A donation to a black youth charity? A kiss and tell story from a black "girlfriend"?

Hideous!

Yep, it's true every single one of us hates gays; we all eat fried chicken and watermelon for breakfast and walk around with french fries on our shoulders.

I always suspected you were one of simonr's lot.

and therefore will make less money when they sell the rest of the club.

I don't think Utd are in negative equity like Portsmouth etc were.

On second thoughts, that joke has a touch of the Matt Black's.

I have a problem with FFP.

How are small clubs like City, Chelsea, Malaga etc ever supposed to compete with the likes of Utd, Munich and Madrid if they're not allowed to borrow money or have a sugar daddy?

I wonder how many dippers will pick up on Henry's omission of Gerrard from the list of best players?

If Mr Henry is all about getting value for money from transfer dealings then why hasn't he sold Stevie Me? He'd easily get an over inflated price for him, perhaps as much as £8million.

Maybe he doesnt want another march from a pub the supporters where already drinking in to the stadium that they were always going to in protest.

True the natives wouldn't be happy but it would be funny.

Btw- Barry Glendenning wants his words back.

I think people need to question whether it was the area that needed strengthening the most? Obviously, with Rooney out injured and out of sorts its looking a good buy, but looking at the defence over the three games so far this season maybe Fergie needs to sort that area out. Ferdinand and Vidic didn't look great today and Evra was shocking.

United bought a left back last week and two centre-backs last season.

They should've bought a right back as Raphael is a liability. The options in centre midfield look a bit samey (if you exclude fat Ollie).

Looks like RvP will single handily keep Man U in the hunt for a CL place this season.

He does have experience in carrying a team

So is he carrying United or just scoring a lot of goals?

His goals are carrying United; he's been poor in all other aspects of the game.

Any new manager needs two years to make a team play the way he wants them to play. In PL terms that's 76 games.

The evidence for this is what?

not saying Rodgers doesn't have a clue... but he doesn't have a clue

you can't expect to play like Barca if you don't have the quality players to make the system work

I think dipper fans are the only ones expecting to play like Barcelona; Rodgers is probably trying to replicate Swansea's performances.

Poldoski and Giroud still looked very static. Jenkinson and Mertesacker looked iffy at times too. You can't knock the others players' performances though.

I was about 7 when I choose to support Arsenal.

What context do you think I'm using and why does it offend you?

It's doesn't offend me, it just doesn't work as a metaphor for someone who changes their club every ten minutes.
Nouveau riche implies new money and poor taste rather than disloyalty.

Amen to that Dan, amen.

One could argue that the fact that Mr Harwood had a choice makes him a nouveau riche supporter (btw I'm not liking the use of nouveau riche in this context). Danny Dyer types might have you believe that proper fans just do as their dad tells them.

Wenger's proven enough times in recent seasons that he'd rather offload a player than let him go for nothing. You can fault him for many things but he's got one of the best records in the business when it comes to buying and selling players.

I haven't checked the stats but don't Arsenal have a history of paying very high wages?
Signing a twelve year old for £4m, paying him £100k per week and then selling him for £12m isn't necessarily great business.

No.

No one at the Emirates is on £100k a week. Not even RVP was I believe. I think Fabregas and Henry were the last £100k+ earners.

Wenger believed in a flat wage structure where squad players would be on the same money as first XI. This didn't work of course because first XI left for more money and squad players didn't try hard enough.

I think it's all changed now anyway. Every single one of the post-Invisibles-Highbury-to-Emirates-move 2005-2012 era squad have now left except for Rosicky and Walcott. Nearly every signing in the last 3 transfer windows has been 25 years old and above. A new team is being built and not from youth.


Lol at the invisibles.

I'm not sure if you've missed the point or not. I think Wiggy understood what I was getting at so ask him to explain next time you meet up bread and olives prior to the game.

Joey Deacon was physically disabled not learning disabled. If Joey had been intellectually disabled he would participated in the Special Olympics not the Paralympics.

Sorry to get all "right-on" but I'm noticing a horrible trend round here lately.
