I have it on good authority from a source close to the club that Everton were going to bid for Ronaldo BUT, despite the fact he scored two goals in the Champions League Final, his tracking back wasn't up to scratch and we're going for Deeney instead.

This lot are clearly the world's biggest club by a mile so I've never understood why certain sections of the English press big up Man Utd (3 wins) as the biggest club in the world.

Colin you worry me sometimes :-))
I'd rather sign Troy fucking Tempest!

Real Madrid have won it 12 fuckin times...12 x, ffs, and we think we are a big club? No chance... we are decades and decades away from that standard. We wasted the first 50 years of our history watching the crescent while a team from Spain saw the whole of the moon.
Oh and BT Sport need to get rid of monosyllabic morons like Owen Hargreaves and Michael Owen and think a bit more ambitiously if they want to attract new subscribers via their free output.

Off topic I know but why do we have boring beauts on here who insist on bring our neighbours into every thread...ZZZzz.

I was thinking exactly the same. We are a million miles from that standard of football.
Ball control, skill, off-the-ball movement, footballing brains. It's an absolute joy to watch such talent on the field.
What saddens me, is to think, firstly, the chances of us even getting into the Champions League are slim, to get past the group stage slimmer, and to get to the final???
Getting back to the Premier League, where it all begins. If we have any real ambitions, we'd better start spending big money on some quality (world class) players, and ditch the sentimentality of giving contracts to over-the-hill players, players who never reached their supposed potential, and players we can see never will .
We need a huge investment of cash, a complete turnaround in attitude, a winning mentality, and a statement of intent that we have a goal of becoming one of the elite clubs in world football a goal of winning trophies, and a timeframe in which to do it.
Anything less, and we are doomed to another barren period in the club's history, watching sub-par footballers play sub-par football, showing little passion for the club or the fans.
Will we take the first steps? I have a feeling the coming months ahead are going to give us a good indication...

Trouble is, whilst we just talk about wingers, the likes of Madrid just fly! I'm 58 and have given up on Brigadoon!

I'm not aware of any poster who brings the Shite into every thread but I do care very much that they've been better than us for most of the last 50 years and love to rub our noses in it.
Lofty disregard of our vastly more successful neighbours? Yes, that will see us right and will be just the strategy we need to outstrip them.
I'll start to ignore them when we've won more than them. See Alex Ferguson on his determination to knock them off their perch - worked out quite well as motivation.
Never mind, we're purer and more pious than that.

It's a bitter pill to swallow for the majority of the 'deludes', but the fact remains, they no longer dine on the 'top table' certainly in the transfer market.
Their ARE bigger player's financially now in the Premier league, City can blow any club out the market now if they want a top player, with Chelsea and Man United not far behind.
Liverpool missed the boat 20 years ago when rivals Man U were expanding their ground and their commercial empire at the same time.
Their pinning all their hopes on Klopp being able to wave a magic wand and continue the momentum he has created at the moment, but there are no signs FSG want to operate in the same financial market as the three clubs mentioned above.
It's a risky strategy with the odds on their paranoid supporters turning against the owners and the manager if the club isn't successful anytime soon.
Interesting times ahead.
