Gab1965, but you don't do that two weeks after you buy a player! How much can his value have increased in two weeks?

fictionalemu - Chelsea do it all the time, buy players and then loan them out and barely play them. They doubled their money on De Bruyne, Lukaku has hardly played for them and is already at Everton, they could sell Courtois for a huge profit, Monaco could be doing the same thing.

I actually can't wait to see this fella in the premier league. From what i've seen, he's a real bean pole striker in the peter crouch / kevin francis / Nicola Zigic mould - which I always find absolutely hillarious!

Seems a strange signing. Admittedly I've only seen him play twice, but he looked pretty slow, ungainly and not too comfortable in possession. In short - everything you'd expect Martinez not to want, but clearly the little spaniard has a plan. He'll probably score a couple in the derby now! Incidentally, Martinez makes it very difficult to dislike Everton. Hopefully he'll say something petty and incendiary about Liverpool soon and I can hate him. It feels very strange at the moment,,,,

There are some definite shenanigans here. Sold by financially dodgy club Anzhi Makhachkala to tax haven Monaco on 4 January. Two weeks later, without having played a single game for Monaco (which would have made him ineligible to play for a third club in a single season), he then transfers again.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think


ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
