Re: How good is De Gea?

111m being touted. Surely this means a big earner like Lukaku or Sanchez has to go. Wages took up more than 50% of turnover under Pulis, and turnover actually plateaued under his long ball bullshit. So surely they have to get one of his huge earning hoofers off the wage bill. No one would begrudge em.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Very prescient Sid - this in the Independent: " Manchester United’s squad revamp continues at haste, with reports that talks with Lille are at an advanced stage to sign forward Nicolas Pepe. The club have this weekend rejected a fresh £54m offer from Inter Milan for Romelu Lukaku, but if the strike...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I want that Nicolas Pepe cunt. He's worth a good 70/80m. Pure quality

Re: Brexit

Here's a well researched and sourced article on creeping EU privatisation of healthcare https://corporateeurope.org/en/power-lobbies/2017/06/creeping-privatisation-healthcare Healthcare is a national competence, not the remit of the EU. Right? Yes and No. Rulings from the European Court of Justice, ...

Re: Brexit

It would be a ref on an actual brexit rather than a horizon of possibilities and I doubt no deal or a deal that looks anything like the one we negotiated would attract nearly as much support. A lot has to change in parliament to build a coalition that would back the deal we have or no deal. A diff ...

https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11667/11766963/romelu-lukaku-manchester-united-reject-inter-milans-53-9m-bid I don't think Inter can afford him. 53m is a decent price for a CF that can't control the ball. Sell and dismantle Joses bus. But Ed is holding out for more to try and right the wron...

Re: v Inter

yeah... James has lots of speed but he wasn't really troubling the Inter defence, who just pushed him off the ball mostly. This is not to say he won't develop into something special. AWB is pretty fucking good though so I feel we've bought at least one good'un If he can't knock it 20 yards past the...

Re: Just 24 hours left

It seems unlikely we'd do much without a vote in parliament where I think the govt would lose but it's not impossible. Iran and NK are obviously v diff situations from a US and trump pov, so I guess trump's record of rhetoric vs action in NK doesn't mean much and he wouldn't care about internationa...

Re: Just 24 hours left

Even with johnson as pm, I'd be surprised if we did that. Obviously the public would be against it but i feel like iraq tipped the balance the other way in parliament too It'd be a hard thing to do but it's definitely more feasible these days. Iraq feels like a long time ago now (won't to the victi...
