That's some Real Madrid transfer policy logic right there.

Re: The Official Football Thread

It's painful watching Sanogo up front. It's even more painful watching Podolski come on and make Sanogo look like Thierry Henry. I'm not really sure how we escaped with a point, Leicester were much more dangerous in attack. We had more shots according to Sky, but Szczesny was the one making all the...

Yeah I still think we'll get top 4. Don't support teams in lower divisions but keep an eye out for Barnets results as when I was younger they were my championship manager side. We've started the league worse than this. One point from our first 4 and won it. Everton stopped points today. Liverpool o...

Rumours from Sky that Valencia want to sign Tom Cleverley. That seems bizarre, because Valencia are up to their eyeballs in debt, and British players are notoriously overpriced. I think Valencia sold Matthieu to Barcelona for around the same price, so they might have a small amount of cash from tha...

I like how you put 'Back Four' in there instead of names . Anyway, would Van Gaal want to switch formations (4-2-3-1) so early in the season?
