ManU misery gives me joy as I dislike them deeply. For me it is sad to see quality players lose their shine. Say what you will about him but Ronaldo was spot on when he decided to lay into them before being released. It turned into a massive graveyard for expensive players.

Makes me appreciate our technical/sporting department, whatever the name is, even more.

Am I the only one who doesn't know roughly half the players called up to the Chelsea vs Liverpool game?

lol the most ridiculous "offside" interference decision.

Endo allegedly blocked off some random dude from beating van Dijk to a header 10 meters away :lol:

Well half of Liverpools starters are out injured. A bit like us against Lecce.

Chelsea on the other hand bought a whole new team in the summer. Half of them were players most fans hadn’t ever heard of.

So no you’re not alone. Especially on the Liverpool academy players.

Zidane is linked with everyone. He is also linked with Juve.

Not saying people can't change their minds, but I've seen Zidane quoted before as saying he isn't interested in coaching in the Prem because he doesn't speak English. At least Juventus would make sense with his background, although the idea of European mentality monster Zidane coaching Europe's most famous bottlers doesn't excite me, especially because in that particular "immoveable object vs. unstoppable force" fight, Zidane and his 1997 CL win with Juventus would prevail. :p

But yeah, I'm not picturing Zidane taking on United for several reasons.

EDIT - 1996, not 1997, and Zidane didn't join until the 1996-'97 season so he wasn't part of the CL winning squad of Juve, but he was part of the two teams that lost in his first two years there. Thanks for the correction @brehme1989.

1996. They bottled it in 1997 against Dortmund.
