That was a good piece, your man is plainly talking to someone. I think he gets Woodward sometimes, so maybe that’s one of his sources.
There comes a point when money talks and it's cheaper to back the players than the manager who keeps falling out with them and wanting replacements.
If he replaces Pogba I think he's on thin ice with the board there after. If he wants to replace 4 like is being speculated, and some of them are his own signings, I think the board will say nah mate, we can't afford another 200m to replace em, it's time we got someone in that can work with them.
His pay off will be what, 10m? Compared to hundreds of millions to replace perfectly good players. It's a simple decision IMO
But then I don't expect the cunt to ve sacked this summer, it'll be more like next season
I would be all for change IF anyone can suggest a replacement?
Someone that guarantees "Barca circa 2010 flowing football" whilst winning major trophies. Problem is, no one seems to be able to throw names in the hat? There has to be some sort of long term planning. I think personally, Jose should get one more season. He has out performed Klopp, Pocho, Conte and Wenger in the Premier league this year. Man City's performances have clouded a lot of minds and United seem to be getting the blame... no other cunt has gotten any nearer to City than we have.
Yeah but we're in a league above Liverpool and Tottenham in terms of club stature, finances, and above all else expectation. We don't compare ourselves to them, we compare ourselves to the best, and that's City - and we're miles off.
Also you can argue that Liverpool have performed better. They're up our arses and might claim second while being in the semis of the CL - that's a good season that. If they make the final they've outperformed us big time, and they haven't spent half a billion in 2 seasons, and Klopp didn't take over a squad with great players in it like Pep did at City.
And you're talking about performances in terms of results, but in terms of actual performances on the pitch we're miles behind the top 4. We don't have a functioning team, we don't have a style. The players don't know their job roles either, or like doing what's asked of them. Compare that to Spurs, City and Liverpool they're well drilled, balanced, effective teams who believe in their managers plan.
What we've got is a bunch of individual galacticos muddling through. Like Pogba said if we had a coherent attacking style we wouldn't have been 16 points behind City all season.
