Same as the transfer one, except for throughout the season! Any domestic league discussion welcome!

 

First thing I'd like to bring up- has anyone seen Utds lineup for tonight?!

 

De Gea, Valencia, Vidic, Carrick, Evra, Cleverley, Scholes, Kagawa, Nani, Rooney, Welbeck

 

Thats mental. Two recognised defenders selected. I really can't see them putting up much of a fight for the title with selections like this, even with RVP coming in.

To be fair they have four centre backs injured, I assume Rafael is currently injured as well. It is worrying how often they seem to end up in these defensive crises though, Valencia must have played at right back at least five times this year.

You don't need to defend if you always in possession of the ball though - a lesson we could do with learning! :)

But you still need a solid and settled defence to go anywhere. I cant think of a single team that didnt have one yet was able to win a league title. In any division in the world!

It was tongue in cheek, but in fairness Carrick isnt a bad footballing Centre half and Valencia has played wingback on a number of occasions.

 

If the full team works hard to close down the space which United do they can get away with it, although I do agree not for a whole season!

It's a good game. Evertons movement is excellent, Felliani and Pienaar are really impressive in their roles behind the striker.

Felliani could be a big player in the top six of any english side he is very good at what he does

    • As the ground was in the books at just short of £50million in 2018, I don’t think  £30million would be much use.  In any case, I suspect Gibbo will be very wary of any transaction concerning the ground for as long as the other sale and leasebacks in the Championship are being investigated by the EFL. incidentally, Boro’s independent valuations of the ground showed £40m in 2013 and £50m in 2018, after they spent around £7m on improvements in 2016 (when we were promoted to Premiership). In other words the value actually only increased like for like by £3m. Over same period Derby sold theirs for £80m in 2018, up from the valuation in 2013 of £60m. I know they are in different parts of the country, but you can see why SG was so suspicious of the sale price of Pride Park.
    • Any reason Burnley and Boro don’t have a good relationship? I remember Pulis saying the Gibson transfer was extremely smooth and both parties were delighted to do business?! 
    • Any reason why? I can’t think of anything he’s ever done of any significance other than having a decent debut against arsenal 5 years ago. 
    • Sorry to *** on everyone's bonfire, but Deal Fry isn't going anywhere. He had a chance in the summer and refused the transfer as he doesn't want to leave the area and has just bought a new house in Nunthorpe - sounds like he's a bit of a home boy and would take something special to change his mind. Gibson was all dependant on Randolph leaving. Both parties interested in it happening but Burnley want a large fee for the loan until the end of season. Boro and Burnley do not have a good relationship at all which is making it tricky to do a deal.
    • 2 separate deals...   Gibson - Loan to Buy Fry - 16mil if Burnley stump up cash. Gibbo wants to return,  fry wants to stay
