They've done it, against 5000/1 odds Leicester City have won the Premier League can't wait to see them demolish the rest of Europe next year.

Yeah, pretty amazing. But we'll see if they demolish Europe next year. They only had one win against a top 5 team (current standings), they either draw or lost against the rest.

I still don't get the whole BPL setup and why any small fry team wants to be there. It's pretty much who has the most money wins. Leicester is the only outlier for 2 decades worth of play. Poor teams just fail and remain there essentially.

Better money, I can guarantee Leicester sold far more merchandise this year and it will probably be the same for Watford, Norwich and Bournemouth (3 teams promoted last year) plus the ad revenue from having more games televised, it's all about money.

It's a shame all these billionaires have come in really granted it sure beats Manchester United winning a triple every damn year.

Fu been a MU fan since I was 7. Alex Ferguson was magic.

I agree he was, results clearly show that but as a Liverpool fan from around the same age, Man U were the enemy (especially as City were hardly a thing)

Since City has emerged they've become the top enemy for us. Liverpool and Arsenal are still enemies though. But since Ferguson retired we haven't been able to do much. Just not the same.

Mourinho as a manager next season though, maybe he'll bring it back, I hope not as Klopp is starting to come into his own, but it's shaping up to be a good years already and we haven't had the Euro's yet.

Tallgeese_lll 05-21-2016 07:20 PM

We are talking about the same Mourinho that went all sorts of crazy at Chelsea? MU is a much bigger club than Chelsea, and LVG has done well with the younger players. We may not be in the CL but we are rebuilding. It was inevitable after Ferguson. But I've heard a lot of MU fans prefer Mourinho over LVG, I guess they want instant results only to be relegated. Joke will be on them when that happens.

Wish we had Klopp or Ancelotti, maybe even Guardiola. I'd take all 3 over Mourinho.

His first tenure there he was pretty much untouchable, but then Abramovich's money had a lot to do with that, Now we'll get to see how he works with the Glaziers but with there performances this season I see them slipping into a mid table side that will struggle to reach the top 4. Pretty much what Liverpool is now.

Rooney needs to go, anywhere or retire I honestly don't see the hype behind him, he plays very lazy and just isn't that good, He'll be our downfall at the Euro's as he plays worse for England then he does for Man U.

Tallgeese_lll 05-26-2016 09:51 AM

Rooney is still good but he is not the same. He's got a great pass and a great shot but the Strikers role is not for him, better off as a midfielder or playing right behind the Strikers.

This fan base though does expect too much for MU. They're in a rebuild, we've finished top 5 twice in a row and win the FA Cup. FIRE THE MANAGER!!!! And now Giggs is off to coach elsewhere unless he can be persuaded. Liverpool will get better. I've always liked Klopp.
