Is this a windup

Will this be followed up by another early Christmas party hosted by Dave Bassett?

 

I might go down and sing my version with references to Bin Laden in it. Might be fun, until they all start lobbing shoes at me.

 

What a set of utter sad acts they are.

Been taking in the wonderful forum that is s24su and one of dissenters was talking about the last time they did something like this - not one of them referenced this thing Bassett did in having an early Christmas do because he was fed up with them not turning up until after Christmas.

 

I wondered if I was obsessed with them, but then I realised - no, I'm just more knowledgeable,   as at the time it was an article in either the Star - or was it Telegraph and Star still?  Or the Green 'un, or maybe both.

 

I don't get these people who say we should mind our own business and let them get on with whatever they do.   We have a somewhat symbiotic existence, given our family, our friends, our work colleagues support them - albeit in less quantity.

I think it will be a really low points total to see safety this season - maybe even as low as 30 points - possibly 28?

 

To have been on such a wretched run as the pigs and yet still be well in touch with the clubs around them says it all

If things weren't already bad enough for United's players, imagine being subjected to the howling of that bunch of tw*ts in the run-up to kick-off.

 

:duntmatter:

 

I bet Tufty'd be gurning like buggery if he heard that dirge.

 

I reckon Brian the Blade would be up for that singsong in the carpark.

 

Give us a song Brian!

Still get dem blayads taking the p!ss for us signing Rhodes for so much (probably fair). 

 

Wilder paid 5 times that on McBurnie, Brewster and Moussett. 

 

 

Haha, that just weird.

They could have easily won that one 2 1 but for 2 shocking misses. I reckon the best thing to happen would be for Prince charmin to stick with Uriah til it's too late, then replace him with someone who demands a total squad overhaul that doesn't work. This then drops em right in the doodoo and they go back down to league 1. Be a nice little journey for em that. 

6 years in League 1 and back into it within 6 after getting promoted from it. It will be known as the Humble Journey.:tango:

"The trouble with "lessons from history" is that we usually read them best after falling flat on our chins."   

 

"Girls are simply wonderful. Just to stand on a corner and watch them go past is delightful. They don't walk. At least not what we do when we walk. I don't know how to describe it, but it's much more complex and utterly delightful. They don't move just their feet; everything moves and in different directions . . . and all of it graceful."  Starship Troopers, Amen!

35 points to stay up equates to 11wins and a draw from 28 games. Can’t see them getting anything from their next three so that takes it down to 25. They’ve still got trips to Man U Leicester wolves spurs and Everton to look forward to. 
Doesn’t leave much wriggle room. 
bloody lovely

I think Burnley will kick on a little bit, so I don’t think it’ll be stupidly low totals to stay up. But something like 36 is realistic. Massive struggle for them to get there, but still possible.

 

Most of them I know are resigned to going down, but want to stick with wilder regardless. They seem to think it’ll be easy to go back up. This season and with the current top 3 in the champ, it probably looks that way, but history shows it’s normally one hell of a slog to get back up at the first attempt.
 

Also, I can’t see many of their players having sale value.  Having spent 130m with loans, and future payments that does not bode well at all. The prince doesn’t have the money to invest, he worth what, 130m?So if they can’t get back at the first attempt they could be in huge trouble, even with parachute payments. If I was in charge I’d be changing the manager now while you still have a small chance of staying up. It looks to me like wilders run out of ideas.

Aren't Burnley being taken over, that would explain why they didn't spend in the summer.... think that will change in the January window with the inclusion of 2/3 quality players making the difference. Probably the only club down there that have cash to spend

 

And they have a quality manager...I think they should be fine

Brighton have looked a really good side to me on a few occasions this season. They could easily win a few on the spin. 

 

Burnley have been unlucky missing some key players but they should be ok. It looks like Fulham are rubbish enough for the pigs to be above them but can they sneak above West Brom and one other? 

 

Normally someone else gets dragged in and I wouldnt be surprised if Villa went into freefall but they already have 14 more points than United. Palace also look like they could slip back in but again are already 4 wins ahead of them.

 

They will have hope while Burnley are down there struggling. They play Everton at home next week so, with how poor Everton's defence has been, Burnley have a good chance of getting something there.

 

With Pigs playing Leicester it could be the day there is a bit of daylight between them and safety. Although with about 50 of their biggest diehards singing outside Leicester might not be able to live with the humble heroes.

No they won't, they'll get relegated.

Look, this isn't bias --but United are down aren't they?  The players know it and the manager knows it..it must be a really weird atmosphere in training.

 

I keep mentioning Rhian Brewster, because for me his situation is so odd.

 

The lad wanted out of Liverpool to prove himself, and it seems  his agent sorted him with dem blades as they probably offered the most in wages and they did finish in the top half last year.

 

The problem is his style and strengths are of no use to united, and club and player must both know it. I imagine he drags himself round training, and gets put on the bench just because you can't have a signing like that in the reserves.

 

I can see them selling him in January - he's of absolutely no use to them but £20 million in transfer fee might buy them a couple of more suitable players that won't mind playing in the Championship next season when united will have a good chance of coming straight back up.

how much did they pay for Brewster ?

 

Liverpool have first dibs on any future transfers so I reckon they’ll take him back for half what they received from the pigs

Re the Wilder v Klopp thing, Wilder said Klopp was talking ‘b0llocks’ about the sub thing the other week, hence Klopp singling Wilder out I suppose.

 

That's strong language from one so humble.

 

He's meek and he's up the creek.

Wasn't it around £23m? Crazy money for an unproven player which we all said. As far as they was concerned though they couldn't lose because they've picked up a gem because Liverpool highly rate him

 

They are no where near down yet though. They are only 2 wins from being out of the relegation zone. I'm with scram that it'll be a record low points total for safety this season
