Following our last few fixtures i don't think any further proof is needed that, with this team, attack is the best form of defence.

First half we looked like stoke/wba. Utter dogshit. When we had a go, with nothing to lose, we gave them a bit of a game.

Fact is, our team and squad are nowhere near the level of quality that Juve has. In fact, no team in the PL would match them in my opinion.

When asked if United can reach the same elite level, the Portuguese coach answered: "To go to the Juventus level? Barcelona? Real Madrid?

"How can you reach that level? Manchester City level?

But your coach doesn't think you're good enough to win Champions League, after spending half a billion. Until you conquer Europe you can not claim to be in that company, no matter how many goals you score past Burnley.

I didn't. Your manager did Wink

You can wank on about money all you want (Jose has spent £400M btw and LvG £300M before that) but that statement that must eat right through you?

Can you imagine feeling that ten years ago?

All this bollocks about money...City's spending is no excuse for us to be 2 levels behind the likes of city, Barca etc.

City spent loads on duds in the past decade or so but now the reason they are where they are is because they have a plan, have brought well and got the best out of their players.

We've spunked fortunes (maybe not as much?) but every player we've brought post Fergie has so far been average at best. This is a big reason for us being shit.

Like many things at United, Jose is wrong. Laughing

Question for you then. Do you think ickle Ciddy should be mentioned in the same breath as European greats that have been there, done that, bought the t-shirt? If so, on what basis do you believe that?

And if the answer to that is yes, does that make you part of the "City's constant European failure and Nic's constant excuses"? Wink

We were crap.

The only satisfaction is goading Nic.


I would prefer that we were better.

Yes, of course they should.

He wasn't referring to trophies, he was referring to the fact that clubs on the next level have good players. And we have good players. Lots of them in fact.

We are head and shoulders above the level you're at, in everything we do, at the minute. And as mentioned previously, this isn't some fluke, it has been planned over the last 10 years and built towards. More so these past 5 years with a structure to the entire club and the signings.


Look at the last 300/350M of signings both clubs have made

United
Pogba, Lindelof, Lukaku, Matic, Sanchez, Dalot, Fred

City
Stones, Bernando Silva, Ederson, Walker, Danilo, Mendy, Laporte, Mahrez


No comparison really.

I don't think you can consider yourself at their level until you match or surpass their level. I don't disagree that much about your club is well planned, well thought out and well executed - still struggle to fill your ground though, and you're no nearer European success now than you were 5 years ago. If your level is winning the Premier League at a canter then I don't disagree, if your level is to compared to serial champions league performers then I do.
