Palace are a tough bunch of buggers and I reckon they'll easily finish in the top half this season. Liverpool showed at last that they can win dirty. Three bloody good points from the match: Virgil was magisterial, Allison was not only a great stopper but is also a very cool and accurate distributor, and there was absolutely none of that mid-match flakiness that Liverpool demonstrated too often last season. It's between Liverpool and City this season. United won't finish in the top eight.

The rumour mill has it that United are deciding which of Pogba or MourinHo they are going to get rid of. I say it should be both.

We could do worse than to offer the manager job to Ryan Giggs. At least he will have them playing " the United way.

What do you think ?

It's devastating to hear that Jimmy Mac has passed on. He was a true gentleman of football, as fine an inside forward who ever graced a football pitch, and, above all, my boyhood hero. Where were you on the evening of March 7 1961, you may ask? Well I was at Turf Moor, nine years old, watching Burnley beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 in a quarter-final FA Cup replay. It was a brilliant football match and Jimmy played a massive part. That night made me everything wot I am!

Thanks for missing my absence. I have been away for the Bank Holiday week-end. I don't do any postings when I am away from home. I leave all that until I return.

Anyway noe that I am back I will agree with most of you comments. I did get to watch United in a pub in Llandudno. I agree that it was a shambles ;they played as though they did not know each other and did not care about doing so. Something will have to be done. First thing should be to get rid of Pogba. Then Mourinho should get his marching orders. At the moment there is no coverage of Man United, just loads of s**t about Pogba and Mourinho,

The way we are playing we won't even finish in the top 10, !!!

I don't follow much football, Raggy but I think the difference is that Liverpool look like a club that's moving forwards with a progressive and refreshing manager.

Man U don't look to be going anywhere and I don't know what's happened to Mourinho. Always full of himself but I used to find a likeable side. But since the last time at Chelsea, he seems (to me) to have turned more "bitter old man" and more interested in carping than building a team that would produce their best.

OK maybe the end of season will produce a different outcome but that's how I see things at the moment.

Hi Steve

I agree. We are completely disorganised at the moment. What a F*** up with the transfers.!!!

We were lucky to get away with it against Leicester. The Pogba/Mourinho saga is wrecking the club. We should do something about it. I have a feeling that one or the other ....or both will be fired very shortly.

In contrast Liverpool are very organised under Klopp. They have strengthed the team and wiped the floor with West Ham.

It's going to be a long season for us.

Gilmore you are right. I am not a soccer fan. Many non fans take an interest in the World Cup.
David, I have noticed that many fans embrace the concept of "we" when talking of their club, even though they do not "take part."

As Mike said, England only got as far as it did because of an easy draw.
It was unable to beat teams from very small countries like Croatia and Belgium, and last time was knocked out by Iceland!

I would call that a humiliating defeat for a large country with a huge soccer industry, but as Mike said we fielded a young team who might fare better next time.

Hi Keith

Like others I never felt humiliated. England had a very good draw by only having to play...shall we say moderate opposition. So we qualified for the finals easily.

Gareth Southgate opted to select a very young squad because the more experience players were not up to standard.

We got to the semi finals, in doing so we got further than the likes of Brazil, Argentina,Spain etc.

We have a host of younger players coming along in the Under 17 and Under 21 Teams. So the future at this stage looks bright.
"
Money may be a factor but by no means does it guarantee "buying" The World Cup.

Think back to this year.....Croatia got to the final and could have won it but for a brilliant performance by France. I don't know what the financial position is with Croatia but would think it small compared with the more well known teams.

Football is a sport and one of the wonderful things about it is that you can't guarantee success.

Cheers

Mike

That is indeed a bit extreme, firstly what is your concept of "we". I didn't take part, and I suspect neither did you. I don't feel ownership of a team just because it happens to have the same nationality as me. Secondly, and accepting that by "we" you mean the England football team, getting to the semi-final of a major competition is hardly being humiliated. Its just not quite being the best.

Hi Keith

There is no doubt that English clubs higher wages than almost all foreign clubs.

I was surprised to see only this week that Barcelona do not pay top money.



Foreign players flocked to England so much that in 2005 Arsenal played a full team of foreign players. More recently Chelsea have played 8 players.

Belgium have invested huge sums of money into sport. The result is that Belgium are progressing to be one of the leading sporting Countries.

Money is the key. Charles and Law were paid more in Italy than they would have been in England, Wales or Scotland. Now its the other way round.

Mike, why are only a third of English league players English, and why are half the Belgium squad English club players.

we should remember that Many British players played abroad

Not many compared to the reverse flow.
It may not be a wholly one way traffic, but almost.

English players earn very high wages compared with most Foreign leagues.

That applies to bought in players too, plus the transfer fee.
Do other European leagues pay significantly less?

Why do only English clubs seek to profit from selling players?
Why does England produce so few elite players from its large population?
Why do English clubs prefer to buy in players than train English kids?

Mike, I think you make a very good point about the wages. Wages in the EPL are obscene. And English players, and indeed others such as Belgian players, either see these wages as an indicator of the quality of the league (which they are not), or else are just plain greedy. I guess Bale could have earned more if he had gone to Man City. But he wanted to play, train and compete with the best. Kane I would think is a level down, and would struggle to get game time at Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus or PSG. The one England player who could definitely command a transfer to a top league is Pickford.

" If Kane is as good as he tells everybody that he is, why is he not pushing for a move to a top Spanish, French or Italian club? "

A number of foreign clubs have registered interest in Harry.

This was before the World Cup started. I guess after a very ordinary performance the clubs may move on.

One thing you must consider is that English players earn very high wages compared with most Foreign leagues. They can get better players cheaper. They also prefer to sell players that wish to leave to bring in huge transfer fees.

I've gleaned that the expression "world-class player" has become flavour of the month during the World Cup. Funny that. As I've watched the matches I've seen that the most successful teams have actually played as teams and that their alleged world-class players have set their egos aside. I've heard it said several times that England have just the one world-class player. Well he got the Golden Boot (by dint of three penalties, two tap-ins and one deflection that he knew nothing about), but the way he played, especially in the knock-outs, revealed him to be a world-class let-down. I think we should give him the golden handshake.

I remember when Burnley won the First Division in 1960 with a team that cost £9000. The runners-up, Wolves, cost half a million. Only two of the Burnley first team cost any money, the great Jimmy Mac, the finest inside-right ever to grace a football pitch, accounting for £7000 of the dough, and nine of the team had been recruited by what was then the finest scouting system in the country. Mind you, the players were treated like minions and were forced to have formal dinner with Bob Lord after each match... Most players would have to get other jobs, such as running sports shops, after they retired, which could happen unexpectedly early due to injury or just being dropped, and a good few ex-household names were soon on their uppers.
