@HEGGSY my Eurostar is about to depart.
I'll text you with my new UK # when I arrive 😁
FIBA are stupid because basketball is the only other team sport in the world that could come close to matching the World Cup. But instead somehow the most prestigeous basketball tournament remains the Olympics, where it has to share the spotlight with a bunch of other sports. Olympics have always been about track & field and swimming, basically pushing humans to the limit and setting records in speed and strength: Who can run/swim the fastest, jump highest, throw **** furthest, etc. Team sports will always lose the spotlight in the Olympics.
And as for club level, David Stern mentioned that one day the NBA could expand into Europe, but that remains a fantasy.
So who will ManU target now?
MANCHESTER UNITED l PITTSBURGH STEELERS l NY KNICKS

People said the same after missing out on Fabregas last year and we came back and got ADM,not worried one bit . As long as the cash keeps flowing from these multimillion dollar sponsors,the players will come.
Some might say that Roo sounded a little dillusional there and I could see it but I like the confidence,just hope the goals will actually come soon as he says...
If not I doubt LVG will hesitate to pull an RVP on him
He'd be forced to play and then bottle it even more than he did last year...we played MUCH better and by far our best football with him on the bench last season,against some top clubs too. I would agree with you if he had Falcao's determination and heart to prove himself but that was lacking. He just never fit in to the whole possession based philosophy. I still swear that he would've flourished under SAF but LVG is not SAF and isn't about that lullling, counter attacking life . It was the best decision for all 3 sides at the end of the day...
We have some options out wide though in Adnan(although LVG seems to have fallen in love with the idea of him as a no.10),Young,Mata and youngsters like Lingard and Pereira who are hungry and still waiting on their shot. I personally don't think we'd need another winger,it'd be nice sure but I'm fine with our options on the bench. Now ST and CB is a must I agree.
I wouldn't say it's all on Memphis to create the goals ,the entire attack needs to step up their level. Mata's missed a few chances along with creating some and our finishing in general has been poor. Once they start finding their flow and regaining that confidence in finishing,I think we'll be good in terms of goalscoring. That's also dependant on another strike option being brought in.
