maureen will walk into the united job.

In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was, in me, an invincible summer.

There’s no next time. It’s now or never.

He will dude but hes been saying all the right things ever since the moment he left chelsea.

I'd love to see him being overlooked.

And then out again, pretty quickly after a title or two, before his bubble bursts.
Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

Those who choose to preach would do well to take note of their own sermons.

to be honest I think there is probably about 20 managers all eying Fergies job an thinking to themselves "its definitely my job when hes gone".

Maureen has been l*cking united holes for years now. What I found funny then is Fergie coming out saying in the last year to give the united job to David Moyes when hes gone. Moyes obviously would have never touted for it. I'd say that hurt the likes of Maureens ego. I'd even say the likes of Bruce, Hughes, Fat Sam all think they have a chance.

It's great to watch isn't it? I think they'll be a touch cuter than to give it to one of the obvious 'names' though.

he is probably the most successful manager in europe these past ten years........albeit, with healthy transfer budgets most years.

he is relatively young..........if he stays ambitious, I fear what he could do at united, over a long period of time.

only saving grace are these financial fair play rules.

With Gerrard out for 3-4 weeks and Lucas suspended for West Ham's visit, let's put Aurelio in central midfield, where he has played for us and Valencia before, alongside Meireles, freeing up the right side to try Johnson there, who's now fit again, and let Kuyt play off Torres.
Or is it time to give Jovanovic another run out on the left, or do we play Kuyt on the left, as he does for Holland and give Pacheco thte chance behind Torres?

Is our squad really quite as weak as Roy makes out?

We have not added 'quality' players for some time now. It speaks volumes that we have not yet been able to replace the likes of Riise. Arbeloa left a gap at RM which Johnsons poor form and injuries have not covered. Mascherano,Alonso and Sisoko breaking that strong midfield and lack of cover up front.

Riera, no matter how poor he was at times, provided an outlet for us when we needed. And Babel has been massively underused off late.

So yes, our squad is weak. But not as bad as Roy has made it look with his inept style of football.

Eggzackerly. I'd forgotten about Babbel, an option on the left or right and also Jay Spearing, who's at least tried to play positively when selected. Maybe Spearing instead alongside Meireles and replace Konchesky with Aurelio.

In the respect of the squad looking weak, in that respect Roy's backed his words up by his actions.

Apparently this is Broughton's last game, so I hope Red and Mrs Henk's not there to see him off, as it may inspire another crack to be papered over, giving Roy more time than your average Swiss clock maker.

unlike Roy, at least Collinni (not that I ever wanted a director of football) will have more chance of spotting a top rate player.

Jay Spearing out with ankle injury for 6 weeks. Looks like Poulsen's back in.  >:(

A win in my taste. That's how we should win games. West Ham totally aweful tho, but you can only beat what's infront of you. If, and that's a big if, we beat the Jews next weekend that would be massive. Doubt it tho and at this point I'd settle for a point.

Thought Poulsen was pretty good today. Meireles MOTM IMHO, tho.

Thanks to west ham's imbecile midfield, Poulsen had a good game for LFC.

If it's Hapoel Ramat Gan we're playing, no problems. Bottom with just a point and a -11 goal difference. Hapoel Ironi Kiryat Shmona will be harder, top with 24 points from 11 games. Who decided to put the 39th game in the middle of the season?

Player played in correct position plays well shocker. Sometimes injury problems force a manager's hand for the better.

Thought we were good today. The hammers were a bit rubbish, but Meireles and poulson did well. Good to see Glen back. Ngog played well too.
