And a nice beating from the police too!
Same everywhere in Spain but you don't not got to games like this because of the Police..
They were bad when we were in the square in Madrid but if you walked the other way you were fine,,
Seville they started pushing and generally being picks going in but nothing to cry about...

Barca away is a dream European trip

I've just noticed we are the late, late game on sat before playing away in the cl on Tuesday... Not getting many favours from the league are we laugh
That’s not too good is it , for some reason I was convinced the Barca game was on Wednesday.

TV is king I guess .
Yeah it is, cant remember any other team having to do that though!

Why would you unless you supported them hehe

U won't remember you doing it in a year or 2 either and tbh I wouldn't have even thought about it unless seeing it on here as I doubt you would if it was Liverpool,City, UTD etc

You have a good enough squad to change things sat and still win against Leicester as we did at Burnley and City did at Watford.

Just depends what he see's as priority I suppose

Ive a pretty good memory, saves making stuff up i find smile

Its pretty tough to finish playing at 10pm on sat night to play a vital game away on the tuesday, certain managers would be up in arms if that was happening to their team...

Leicester away certainly wont be easy and i though we had no squad? make your mind up laugh

Talksport are pushing hourly a "Poch to United next season" story.

Anything can happen in football, obvs. However, I cannot see how he could possibly leave us on the cusp of playing full time in the new stadium.

It's taken him and Levy four years to get all of their ducks in a row. Shirley, it would be madness for him to upsticks and head to the uncertainty that is Old Trafford...?

Weirdly I wouldn't mind him going there, he deserves a top job IMO to show what he's all about unshackled by finances and smaller club syndrome. However I also believe Spurs are moving into a new era and we could well be a Man United within a decade. Poch is fairly key to that

Another year of just relying on developing the current crop of players won't cut it though, I think we can all agree on that.

And yes going to United now with their ste squad would be fking hard work.

Given that you guys have never spent much on transfers, and that you now also have a stadium to pay for (mostly), do you think you'll actually go and spend money on players?

Good point hehe

I thought I only made something up 35-40% of the time but it turned out to be more like 59-68% . A bit like my colour blindness, that came like a bolt out of the red!

Even where we to pay off the stadium, I can't ever see us splurging under Levy, he's just not that type of chairman. While I can admire the fact that he runs a tight ship from a business perspective, I don't think he is the type of chairman to take us to the next level. The only way we will become another Utd is if we get bought by a more extravagant billionaire and that obviously brings it's own issues.

Do you think he's tight - or just makes sure the club lives within its means? I.e. if you had the same revenue as us (LFC), do you think you'd spend £70-80m on top transfer fees and pay your top players £200k a week?

yes

Levy will never ever splurge like city / utd,/ liverpool,/ Chelsea, its not in his remit, he isnt the boss Joe Lewis is and Tottenham Football Club is just another investment to him.

United are in a class of one in PL terms because of the powerful brand that was built during the 20 years of success under Ferguson. Nobody else is ever going to do that. Financially there's them and then there's everyone else. Five years of the current ste under Mourinho could undo that though...

IMHO Mourinho will be gone as soon as Utd can't technically qualify for the CL next season....that's what happened with Van Gaal and I imagine Mourinho has the same clause in his contract. At that stage they'll be able to choose pretty much whoever they want. Poch will obviously be a name heavily mentioned/speculated....I imagine he'll want to see some money spent in January!

Money also talks no matter who you are - they could easily double his salary and match Peps

Not much time to get a bit of a rest.

Hard work but enough time has passed since the heady days of Ferguson and Maureen has done an excellent job of making the team bad enough, and adjusting fans expectations down enough, that anyone who comes in and has a positive impact will be seen as the next messiah.
