Rodgers' Selection Acted As Self-Sacrifice

Brendan Rodgers is in the losers, where he's predictably joined by Manchester United, whilst Adebayor and Crystal Palace join usual winning suspects Chelsea and City...

Simple drop Coutinho. His performances have been really average of late, whilst Sterling's pace, energy and trickery have been causing teams problems.

No mention of the Arsenal defence I see; one more clean sheet for Sir Chesney and another testament to the best defensive partnership in Mertscielny

@solskjaer99: "As for the money spent, he didn't spend massive amounts at Porto or Inter". No, relatively speaking he did. In his 2 years at Inter he spent £130m - over the same period AC Milan spent £80m and Juve spent £87m. In his 2 years at porto he spent £20m; this doesn't seem much, but their closest rivals (Benfica) spent £2m. And success is never guaranteed; he was fairly successful at Madrid but won the league once out of 3 (after spending £160m and also having the services of the best player on the planet). You can't say we will be out of Europe for a prolonged period. You are basing that on, an admittedly, bad start. But if Moyes can bring a few players in, get rid of some deadwood and have a proper crack at it then who knows? Given we spent very little in the summer, what makes you think Mourinho would have done any better given he has been heavily financially backed wherever he has gone (relatively speaking)? Would Mourinho be able to work within the constraints placed on him by the Glazers?

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.

Wenger hails important win


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.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
