    Glad I implemented the similar threads feature. Was just about to put one of these up. Man City enter the coming season as back to back title holders. Has a triple ever been achieved before?

    Man U will be lucky to make top 6 next season. My hot take is that, despite the fresh contract, Solskjaer is out the door by Christmas, sacrificed on the altar of Woodward and the Glazers. Unless a miracle occurs and the organization suddenly decides to make smart footballing signings rather than sponsor-pleasing signings.

    There’s a big divide between 6 | 7 in the EPL, so I don’t see them dropping below that top echelon of Euro-bound teams.

    Granted, ManU has a massive overhaul to do, but part of their collapse this year was tied to fitness. It’s been reported that the squad was not very well trained for the long grueling season, and those last dozen-plus games were full of injuries and lack of energy/fight. Plus, there were players that knew they were gone no matter what they did, by their own decision or club’s. A perfect storm for the end of the season debacle. Bring in a new fitness program, replace sour personalities in the locker room - the guys that don’t buy in to the club-mantra of everything for the team (Pogba?), and don’t skimp on negotiations to get the right players, and the club’s prospects should be looking up (not too high though).

    All reports indicate that OGS will get his player request filled, and I’ve read rumors of Dybala, Dembele (Lyon) as two targets, both would help the offense. If they land Ronaldo-lite and Sancho, that’d be a coup. I don’t know what to make of all the other rumors and will wait to see the dominos fall, but I think things are gonna start happening fast with the possibility of Europa play kicking off early on the qualifiers.

    Looking around the web, there are reports out of the Manchester Evening News (back in March) that Bale has already bought a house in Manchester and agreed to terms - trying to force Real to accept £80m.... wonder if that has anything to do with Zidane not giving him a runout yesterday in what’s being billed as his likely last possible match for Madrid????

    Would not be surprised if Pogba becomes connected to this as part of a trade, and if so, I think ManU benefits more with Bale (than Pogba) as a throwback to the lightning wingplay and offensive juggernaut of the Ferguson era.

    I'm sure he'll be great in the 33% of matches he's fit enough to play.
