I can't even imagine what you're going through though...must be a dream just even thinking about it happening....
Well to be honest I never thought I'd have to worry about going to CL games, believe it or not laugh.gif

I'll be able to make all home CL/EL games, aways? Maybe one in the group, and then if we somehow get out of the group(which I can't see) I'll just go from there.

Me and the guys I go with are all 1st priority on tickets for any away/cup game so we won't have issues with tickets at all, not even for Bayern Munich away wink.gif gotta get there first though, then we'll see laugh.gif


Still hilarious to me that I'm even discussing the idea of Leicester in the CL roll.gif

laugh.gif that's so dope. I can only imagine an away match at BVB/Bayern/Juve/Barce/Madrid...Just the atmosphere alone would be off the charts...

I hope with the new money, you guys can build on the squad, and still hold a relatively decent position next season.

HEGGSY is like that guy from the Heineken CL commercials who calls his boss and tells him "Look, don't worry about it. Stop asking questions. Vardy is in form, I got these tickets on the line fam. Lets just hit the game!"

Why haven't I seen anybody talk about how LvG quit on two separate occasions during the last month, but the "GENUIS", Ed Woodward convinced and persuaded him to stay - why is this being glossed over? laugh.gif


Woody?

I remember my first time watching United in a competitive match this season and thinking to myself, this XI is a disgrace to Man U. It wasn't even their style of play because I hadn't watched long enough, but the talent they fielded.

I remember United fans drinking the LVG winning the title kool aid. Everyone else knew they wouldn't be good, but their fans continued with this weird, "the haterz can't k33p us out their mouth 💁🏼." But we were giving you dudes celebrating a reality check and this fall from grace since SAF is crazy to any fan of football. And along with RM, Barca, and Bayern, United is a top 4 richest club. You dudes aren't Everton, obviously people are going to talk about this madness laugh.gif

The worst is still: #LordWoodward. I was convinced some dudes here's last name mighta been Glazer cuz they're the only ones that should be saying that.

I mean the positive to take is cleaning house, but this wasn't supposed to just be a cleaning house season to you guys.

Edit: and there was also the whole celebrating before you got players and then quickly turning with the, "we didn't want him anyways" laugh.gif

How China is attracting some of the world's top footballers and managers
By Tim Hague
Newsbeat reporter

Chelsea's Ramires is closing in on a £25m move to Chinese side Jiangsu Suning.
But why would a 28-year-old Brazil international choose to leave champions Chelsea for a side who finished ninth in China's top tier in 2015?
The midfielder, signed from Benfica for around £17m in 2010, has only started seven Premier League games this season.
And opportunities under interim manager Guus Hiddink have been increasingly hard to come by.

But why China?
Well, there's the link Jiangsu have with his current club Chelsea for starters.
They are managed by former Blues defender Dan Petrescu.
On top of that, some of the Brazilian's international team-mates have been plying their trade in China for some time.

The Brazilian connection
Among the most famous is former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paulinho
He signed for champions Guangzhou Evergrande in June 2015 on a four-year deal and for a fee of £9.9m.
The world-renowned former Real Madrid, Manchester City and AC Milan striker Robinho also played for Guangzhou last season.
He appeared in a side that featured several Brazilians and which continues to be managed by Brazil's former World Cup-winning coach Luiz Felipe Scolari.

International flavour
Scolari succeeded another World Cup winner in charge of Guangzhou - Italian Fabio Cannavaro - who replaced ANOTHER World Cup winner, former Italy boss Marcello Lippi.
And then there's the familiar face of Sven-Goran Eriksson.
He's in charge of Shanghai SIPG, has been working in China since 2013 and even recently claimed he'd like Manchester United and England Captain Wayne Rooney to join him.
Talking about life in China, the Swede was glowing in his praise.
"This is a fantastic country to live in. I live in Shanghai, and if you asked me to compare it to London, I honestly couldn't say which was better.

"Football is becoming huge here and they have very big ambitions for the Chinese Super League.
"We already have famous players, like Asamoah Gyan and Demba Ba, and they have brought something special.
"Football has become much, much bigger even in the time I have been here. I think in the years to come it will be huge and a player like Wayne Rooney could only help that development."

The money
Whether Rooney would ever decide to leave for the far east is debatable, but there's little doubt the pay is pretty good.
Though the only British players to move to China thus far are Maurice Ross in 2010, Derek Riordan in 2011 and Akpo Sodje in 2012.
However one of Eriksson's stars at Shanghai, the aforementioned former Sunderland striker Gyan, will be happy he upped sticks.
He supposedly became one of the highest paid players in world football last July.
The 29-year-old Ghanaian forward, who spent just one full season in the Premier League, is reported to earn around $350,000 per week (£247,000).
That is a weekly amount only bettered by a handful of football's finest - think Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Growth
With money like that, the number of recognisable names setting foot on football fields in the Far East is only likely to grow.
Attendances are up, wages are definitely up, and so are sponsorship revenues.
Wealth and population increases in China have already turned sport into a multimillion-pound business, and clearly the Chinese Super League is on an upward curve too - just ask Ramires.

Honestly, Man United would probably be better off if the Glazers ran everything, because the Glazers would have fired LvG by now.

I think Woodward is a sitting duck because of this.

Not well enough to keep Drogba laugh.gif
I had to double check to see if Anelka was still playing in China. He's in Mumbai playing for Mumbai City as a player-manager laugh.gif
As for China with the addition of players such as Gervinho and Ramires, giving more exposure to the league and bringing in more money, how it will impact the development of the league. They won't be getting near Japan and Korea any time soon but it will be interesting to see what happens.

That's strange, cause I've been all over various different United forums, and the consensus has been: at first complete joy and excitement, which quickly turned to worry which then turned to grief every weekend (even when winning games).

The LordWoodward title you do realize is used with extreme sarcasm right? Every time he makes a signing, he gets the title of Lord. I don't remember a single United fan that truly believed he can replace Gil and Co. In fact, most United fans I've come to contact with are saying United desperately need a DoF again.

"the haterz can't k33p us out their mouth 💁🏼." Unfortunately this has nothing to do with whether United are in a slump or not. People just love to see United lose (even when United were coasting to titles).
