Oh wait...


That'll be another World Cup where he emphatically underlines his lack of greatness at International level.

At least he won't actually be there this time instead of just playing like he isn't.
Good thing he showed up last night.

He certainly did. Obviously he’s a lurker here and used my words as inspiration.

Don’t sign for City, Lionel!
I agree, don't sign for City!!

tbf a large part of Argentina being so poor is down to Messi playing politics and forcing a load of their most talented players out of the team.

I can't believe he gets paid to spout gooseberry fool like that on a consistent basis. Him and big nose Thompson are the worst especially when it comes to foreign managers.

^lol, just the Old Boys Club looking out for their own.

Argentina don't really have the midfield to dominate games. Biglia is good, Banega's alright and I guess Pastore and Di MAria should be able to make something happen, but aside form them, nothing... Just no. 9s and half decent CBs.

Bet they get further than England anyway.

Dogs love cryptocurrencies so that’d make sense.

I think Harry's dog sorts out all of his financial dealings. Allegedly.

I think if we keep our defensive discipline we’ll get three points tomorrow. Based on form - I’d fancy us all day long to take 3. We need to be disciplined and concentrate and wait for our opportunities to punish their defensive frailty.


Pretty scathing but accurate assessment of Liverpool in today’s telegraph. By Carragher. Must have hurt him to write that but he’s pretty on the nose.
If it’s behind their paywall - I’ll post some snippets.

Fully expect to lose. Form hasn't been great, defence lets in every shot, and a misfiring attack. Utd have had a fairly easy run and have built up some steam.
It's also at 12.30, and I'd love to see some stats because it seems to me that we lose/draw a lot of those games

United's performances in the first game back after international breaks are always shite and it's the early kick off so I'm not expecting a good game and performances away at Anfield have largely been shite apart from that great one under LVG.

I think Liverpool will try and get that early breakthrough. If we can defend well for that initial period I think we have the system and players to hurt them.
I’m expecting a draw or United win but if they score first and get their heads up - we could be in for a stern examination of our title credentials.

Always tense and nervous about this fixture. I do fancy us though.
If lukaku improves his poor record against them - we could be in for a treat.

I’d expect Herrera to shadow Coutinho and either Martial or Rashford to use their energy and pace to cover Young at left back against the danger of Sala.

Interesting that he’s brought Darmian in. Presuming he’s going with him at LB and Young ahead of him. Makes sense as Sala is in form and dangerous.

First 20-30 minutes are key here. Keep it tight don't let Liverpool get a grip of the game.
