Every team has to start at some point. Spurs' performance in the Champions League was amazing. Not many teams can claim to have beaten AC Milan in their debut in the Chanpions League. Man City will eventually gain more credibility in Europe and will probably become contenders in the next few seasons. Liverpool have really fallen from grace in recent years and I don't think Chelsea will ever win the Champions League
I can't see Man City winning anything bigger than the Premier League to be honest, and even if they did miraculously top United, they'll have bought it with Sheikh Mansour's millions. I agree about Liverpool, they've invested in overrated British players like Caroll and Adam and with Suarez gone and Gerrard on his last legs, it's hard to see them replicating their old success anytime soon. As for Chelsea... I blame that racist Terry for his slip 'n slide in Moscow.
That night in Moscow is one of my favourite memories. Watching Terry miss that penalty was soooo amazing. It still makes me laugh
Oh definitely. I haven't seen it yet but I heard of it.
Never try and argue with idiots, they'll only drag you down to their level and beat you with experience
Avram Grant had it really hard. I still dont understand his sacking though. His team were in the title race till the last game. They finished second. He also guided them to the Champions League final, something none of Chelsea's managers have ever done. To sack him after that is just insulting.
Abramovich only wants to win the Champions League. Now, thanks to his policy, they're struggling to even qualify for it.
The table is all over the place, i'm a man utd fan and will honestly say I don't think we will challenge the title as good as possible this season, i think Fergy will focus on building the younger players up as they are doing fantastic so far.

With the top4, I think anything could happen.
But if I had to pick out the 4 teams I believe will make it to CL next season, I would say Man City, Man United, Arsenal and Chelsea.
Tottenham has a nice squad, but they lack experience, they only have Adebayor on the striker-side, because both Defoe and Pav are completely useless, and regarding Liverpool, I just don't think they have showed that much so far this season. A couple of nice wins sure, but not being able to beat teams like Swansea and Norwich, that's the kind of games that in the long run will cost you a CL-spot.
It's hard to say. I think Chelsea has a tougher way of getting CL then Arsenal, mostly because I think Chelsea has a weaker team in general (Mata is the only one who has impressed me tbh), Arsenal will get players like Sagna, Wilshere and Gibbs back soon, and Wilshere especially will make a huge difference.
If Chelsea wants to get CL I think they will have to buy several players now during Jan, and I don't see it happening. Even if they get some players, they have to perform right away. Chelsea has been shockingly bad against good teams this season, and that might be their fall.
So the FA Cup was a massive disappointment and WALSALL HAVE GOT TO STOP CONCEDING GOALS IN INJURY TIME.
As to what once, it now is. For this my retirement tour, let us commence, forevermore, forevermore.
I see Scholes has come out of retirement...
Really? Is that the only thing discussed in this thread? Come on.
Just watched the Manchester Derby (lol at my double standards) and that was interested. In no way was that a red card, let alone yellow. Thank god I support Fulham...

The Manchester Derby was fun to watch and a very close game. And my home team won! Swindon Town beat Wigan I suppose Liverpool but I live and I'm from Swindon.

Thank God Man United won.
3-0 lead should result in a nice victory, but with Lindegaard in goal, everything is possible.
Don't knock lindegaard. He's a fantastic keeper
He's a solid reserve-keeper at best.
I'm not saying that De Gea has done a fantastic season this far, but he's still young and has the talent.
Lindegaard is fine as a backup keeper, but the last person who I want to see in goal against the best teams.
United need a good keeper with some premier league experience already. Vorm's been in excellent form so far and Krul's been good as well. If I was Sir Alex I would at least bid for one of those guys this month
Yeah but De Gea needs experience, he could quite easily become one of the worlds best goalies within a few years, but he needs to adjust a bit more to Man United and the way football is played in England, and that won't happen on the bench.
I'd rather see Krul or Vorm then Lindegaard as second keeper if they would do some form of rotating thing, but I don't think it would be fair to either Krul or Vorm to buy them, and then sell them when De Gea is ready.
Went to the Dons-QPR game yesterday. Should have won! The QPR equaliser was a stupid defensive slash goalkeeping error. Oh well. Might pop down to Loftus Road for the replay if I'm not doing anything!
Also I've made it a task to visit the grounds of both Barnet and Luton, they're both near my university and I haven't been there yet.
Kinda wanted Man City to win but oh well, makes the FA Cup more interesting.
Man City 2-3 Man Utd! Even more awesome is that Scholes is BACK! And so is Phil Jones, Smalling and Evans! We finally have a defence!
