re: LVG vs Moyes - wm72
That Van Gaal is buying young non-English players is probably a plus for the future. If they can keep them when he leaves. Not sure the results (or style or tactics) have been any better even with a lot more spending, especially considering that the EPL was tougher at the top of the table du...

re: If Juventus Doesn't Win Serie A, Who Does? - wm72
[quote]They completely came back to the pack. Pack didnt reel them in, they came back to them. [/quote] Meh, it's half and half. Do agree that Juve took a step back. Betting on Khedira being healthy/good is the real puzzling decision. However... Roma is better since they finally have a...

[quote]Also why sell Lajlic to Inter a direct competitor? why not move him to EPL instead.[/quote] They actually tried but Ljajic rejected every EPL side that was interested (West Ham, Aston Villa, etc). Can't really blame him as I'm sure he left money money on the table to compete for a CL spo...

re: If Juventus Doesn't Win Serie A, Who Does? - wm72
I think Roma is the best team but one that is very susceptible to devastating injuries like what happened last year. Already missing Strootman means lack of midfield depth and Roma may be very deep in young talent but they're all really young and likely not ready to be plugged into a Scudetto chas...

[quote]1. Youth 2. UCL - midfield is a big reason City has failed there.[/quote] I think De Brunye will be good and will certainly allow City to keep Silva fresher. However, bringing up midfield balance in the CL against the few elite squads City wants to challenge is the reason some peo...

re: UCL Group Stage Draw "COMPLETED" - wm72
[quote]Tevez and Vidal. Obviously Tevez likely won't be as big of a loss, but Vidal will be a big one for sure. With the additions of Otamendi, Sterling and KDB that I think makes us the top dog in the group. At least for now lol. Our form could definitely go to shite before then. [/quote] J...

[quote]I would like to get rid of Ibarbo and gervinho but keep Ljajic, I have a soft spot for players ending in "ic". [/quote] I wish we could have added Jovetic for you. I like Ljajic but feel he's just not perfectly suited for the 4-3-3. He's so talented (dribbling, control, shot) ...

They'd also have Jovetic and/or Hamsik that may start instead of Dzeko and Madzukic together. Savic would be in CB rotation... off the top of my head. ...
