Mourinho taking over man united would be very interesting...

- considering he is just coming from a Chelsea team which he built and destroyed; I mean selling romelu lukaku, Kevin de bryne, Mohammed salah and some others who have been in fantastic form this season did not favour his decision.. With regards to Chelsea's performance.
So how he will build the united team will be interesting to watch.. As there is really no special player on that squad.

- i am guessing the rivalry between him and pep guardiola will be reignited. And the 2 alone will be an interesting marketing strategy for the Manchester Derby.

- players like Juan Mata future has already been thrown into doubt considering in his best form mourinho didn't even see him as a valuable asset at Chelsea and quickly sold him. So how much more the other players whom I know are really not even close to Mata's quality.
I see a big exodus of players from Man united.

- will mourinho be giving the financial support he will definitely need to bring in players considering Van gaal spent more than required to produce nothing.
I should think so, but united shares have dropped, ifbthey don't make it to UCL, they are in trouble of loosing more financially and it won't be easy to tempt big names to play for them.

So if I am to say, mourinho has a really difficult task at hand as Man United's new manager; but from United's recent history record with managers, he could be right for the team and united actually do give their managers freedom to operate... So, it will be interesting
Arsene Wenger gives by far the most interesting and informative press conferences. The majority of managers often just rattle off the same incoherent nonsense every week, while Wenger actually engages with the journalists and give them something genuine to take away.
This is Wenger's pre Leicester talk, where he also gives his insight on ticket prices:
www.footytube.com/video/arsene-wenger-pre-arsenal-vs-leicester-402528?ref=lchan_vidgrid
Agreed, Wenger is great at avoiding generic "manager speak."
I actually like Wenger

Though he's a bit out of touch. He's the highest paid football manager in this country, so it's way too easy for him to tell people who save up to go to the football each week to ignore the issues.

Still respect him a lot though for what he's done
He didn't say to ignore the issues. He gave a good explanation of the costs English clubs have compared with other countries.
Ok I should've been more specific. The protests
Who has the most expensive Premier League tickets?
http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/35545999
+1
holy s**t that arsenal price.
+2
Yeah we're mugs...
+2
Four most expensive teams from London.
+2
I'm more surprised by West Ham ticket price and why their fans have not rioted yet
+1
WH fans love dem bubbles.

besides look at their team, clearly the money is being put back in the league.
+1
lol at city, cheaper tickets compared to the rest and still cant fill their stadium
+5
Before that answer, BBC really needs to get with the program, freekin the whole world is using YouTube these bozos are using a video player that was invented in the 70s. It stops before it plays and plays before it stops. hehhhehehehee

Its fine I would rather have my money be in my bank then their bank. After all, the best way to watch football is online with all the camera angles and replays. hehehhe
----- got posted in the wrong place---
Spurs, Arsenal, and Hammers have or are dealing with new stadiums, perhaps that's the major contributing factor?
The talk of West Ham United has been weather Dimitri Payet should be in the French squad or not.

The French squad is loaded imo. Its going to be tough for him, as good as he has been. Deschamps usually deploys a 4-3-3 formation with Benz likely to play up-front ( if his cleared from the suspension his serving), Griezman has been on fire with Atletico so I don't see him being dropped and he will likely play in the RW position as an outside forward just like he did during the WC. All that's left is the LW position which will leave him facing Anthony Martial. Its tough because Marital will provide goals and Payet will provide assists.

God the French are so stacked, Coq-block doesn't get a call up. It would be a shame if he too was left out of the Euros. I haven't watch much of Cabaye at Palace but is he really better than Coq-block?
+1
I don't think Coquelin is competing with Cabaye. His direct competition would be Matuidi? France do have a lot of talent to choose from. It must be hard to pick a balanced side and not omit a talented attacker.

Will the bribery scandal affect Benzema's selection? I could see something like this...

Matuidi - Cabaye
Griezmann - Payet - Martial
Giroud (no bias :P)

+1
yeah honestly france is absolutely loaded. so many top players spread across the best leagues in the world. right now i'd say they have the most high-quality talent in europe. the only department they are sort of lacking is wings and striker. on form giroud and benzema are more than enough, but who knows what form they will be in by the time the games come around.
The strikers are what will let France down imo, Giroud is a good striker but is not very very good, not to mention hes a big confidence striker, and the french fans have a history on getting on his back quite a bit. And Benzema ALWAYS goes missing for France.

I think Anthony Martial is the way to go.
+1
Such a long way they've come from Valbuena and Gomis being staples
+1
Benzema goes missing for France? Did you watch the world cup mate?
Wow, all this talk about France and their midfield and no mentioning Paul Pogba? Is he that overrated guys lol?
+1
Yup, and how did France do again?
Well lets be honest here. Although I do think Benz played well against Switz, Hondu, Ecuador and Nigeria. When the real test came up against Germany, Benz was a no show.
The new premier league badge looks god awful, why couldn't we just stick with the current one we have, theres nothing wrong with it! Stop changing things!
+1
people will do anything for the money, cant blame them.
+1
yeah that's how i felt when my uni changed its logo. it looks cheap, and it lacks character. but apparently this type of s**t, plain-looking and simplistic logo is easier to print for marketing and good for branding purposes. lame.
+1
^ thanks Brendan Rodgers
+2
Four things are certain in this world
1. Death
2. Taxes
3. Robben cuttin' from right to take left-footed shot
4. Arsenal
+14
Arsenal are 3rd bic boii
+9
lmao
Next week they will be n.4 again
+4
Only a matter of time, its the Arsenal way.
+1
Hahaha buklau
+1
hahhahah Robben cuttin right to left. The goalkeepers can now plan ahead "oh Robben has the ball lets jump now". Commemorators "what a great save by the keeper, how did he get there so quick".
wrong section had to go under different discussion
LIKA SOM BO DEE! Ah do not know whyyyy Arsenal Ahlways fourth & Citeh ahlways end ap shitehhh.
http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11670/10160316/leicester-city-scout-ben-wrigglesworth-joins-arsenal

let the poaching begin...how desperate lol
+8
Desperate? You're just bitter about Cech :P
+9
Dunno about you, but for me desperation is being 17 points off top 4 and only 7 points above relegation.
+12
old news. I knew ben was joining arsenal back in december.
+1
Sometimes after you win a race you just wanna cruise and take a victory lap right after, but neither of you guys probably remember what that feels like.
+9
LOL! Eeegay that was hilarious! I'll give upvote for the comback.

We are not desperate but smart. We don't want to end up in a relegation battle but would rather stay title contenders every year. We want to continue playing in the champions league.
+3
This thread is desperate.
+4
The one season that Spurs are actually above Arsenal, United, Chelsea and City in recent years is the season they are second to Leicester City. Now thats Spursy.

Spurs were above Chelsea in another recent season too but how did that finish again?
+3
Did that finish off of Ivanovic's head?
+3
Finally Spurs fans are out of der caves....welcome back guys
+2
Well at least you can see the humour in this season lads! God knows how you'd cope if you couldn't. Stay strong and keep smiling, who knows, you may just hold off Bournemouth and West Brom and 13th will be yours!
+9
Great banter lol
+1
Yh, I got nothing lol. Can't knock down this Spurs side tbh
+4
Banter lmao
+1
The only season we chose to have a feel of the lower rungs of the league and the emigrants from Woolwich and their close neighbour still struggle to take full advantage. One thing I'll give them though is their consistenty in finishing 4th and being known as the nearly-there team.
+1
I don't think any Arsenal fan has ever said this b4 but next season is our season baby!
+3
@NaijaCarefree
hehehehehe great one.

Arsenal fans are just like their Manager, all big talk, under value opponents, then after 60min the score is Arsenal 1 Opponent 2, then freek-out and start random running around tic-tic. Best was when they made fun of City by that stupid jumping around, only it backfired and City won the league. hehehehhehee
@PaddySpurs4Life

No one cares about Spurs. And I mean no one. Everyone is talking about Man City, Arsenal, Chelsea, United, Crystal Palace, West Ham, Liverpool, Vardy, Mahrez, transfer window, LVG, Mourinho,.... oh Spurs is 2nd in the league when did that happen. Even their coach is like we won the game when did that happen.
Zizu, the less you post the more it will help you in the long run mate. Absolutely horse s**t additions to a thread the last few times I've read your snippets.

For the record, you will remember the Tottenham name b/c with their style, youth, and impressive performances they will not go under the radar past this season.
Zizu why so much hate man. Not a fan of spurs but you got give credit where it's due.
They have done great against the bigs, they are playing amazing football.
They have the best defensive record in EPL,a very good goal keeper, a young talented squad and manager.
I mean the future looks great for them.

yep next season Arsenal we will do better :p
@Gatete @Shaymoose17
Not saying they are bad just saying they are not talked about or discussed anywhere online or on TV as if they don't exist. No one on Sports media even talk about their great season of being in the top 4th place, or even if there is a chance of them winning the league. In fact, its good to hear that from an Arsenal fan cause an ex-Arsenal pundit on ESPN said this about Arsenal relating it to Spurs "We are becoming like Spurs, where all is good, great squad and all great records but no big team is ever scared of them and always think we can win against them easily".

No Hate Just the Truth. Not a fan of Chelsea but not liking the way people are making them a slogan "Oh at-least we are not Chelsea and they are at the bottom". It happens its life one bad season and how can you forget their crazy performance in the last season both domestic and in champions league.
With hindsight, the Liverpool board must regret not making the top ticket price £90.
+8
Lol they're going to raise prices to £95 just to be safe
+2
YNWA. They all leave in the 77th minute. It's just poor Kloppski who rides it alone.
+1
Ayre said: “If you look at £77 as a ticket price and want to walk out on 77 minutes then it is everybody’s right to make that decision.

“But what I would say to fans who are not sure and are thinking about it is: ‘read the facts’. £77 is guiding people in the wrong direction.

“It is 200 tickets for six games a season - the best seats in the newest stand in the country. It is less than half a per cent of the total capacity. That’s not the headline."


wait, thats what they are protesting? omg
+2
Take the piss all you'd like. The fans weren't the ones on the pitch with the shoddy defending problems, this has been happening on multiple occasions before the protest.

Local loyal Liverpool fans are being priced out so FSG can make an additional two million pounds a year extra. Merseyside is a working class blue collar city, they're being treated as customers, not fans.
+2
200 tickets... Anfield gets several hundred spectators every game, who have traveled long distance (many from overseas, Scandinavia in particular) to come and watch the team. If those who cant attend on a regular basis want to pay extra for great seats, then what's the big deal.
But buying your ticket and then walk out on the team is poor supporting. Something Klopp also addressed a few weeks ago. The lucky ones who've got tickets got to be there and support the team through every match.
+2
Protest the ticket prices the way you want, but to me the most effective way seems to be to not buy the tickets in the first place.
I do think that clubs in general should try to keep it affordable for their core fans, which should be possible with all the increased TV deals. However, I agree with Joey - don't buy tickets at all if you want to make an effective protest. Don't do it by punishing the team and deny other fans the chance to be there for the full 90.
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CE4Y_pEWEAAPpRo.png
Dan, if i were in charge of liverpool, i would certainly change the prices back. all this fuss over an extra £18 for 1200 tickets over the course of an entire season? are you kidding me? that's embarrassing - for both fans and liverpool adminstration. just strike down the policy, there's no way that extra increase in ticket prices changes anything at all in terms of balancing the books. but i have to say fans moaning about this specific price hike, which only affects 200 tickets over 6 games each in your new stand, complaining about being priced out over this is just nonsense.
A lot easier SAID THAN DONE isn't it? The thing is you aren't in charge of Liverpool. The fans just making a fuss huh? Embarrassing that fans are standing up to price hikes despite new TV right deals worth huge sums of money? I don't think you're looking at this in a rational point of view. You have your opinion also which is fine. Though regulars in the Main Stand, their season tickets are rising from £869 to £1,029. So should they wish to sit in the same place next season and not pay that price they will lose that status of season ticket holder, and someone else will take it. Some of these people have been STH for over 25+ years. Football fans in general need to be treated like supporters and not customers.
+2
While I quite agree with that sentiment, the problem is that football clubs today basically have to be run as businesses - to keep up with fans' expectations.

As a side note, I remember how Fulham fans gave Mohammed Al-Fayed hell about plonking a statue of Michael Jackson outside the grounds. But the club owner who pours money into the club is free to make their decisions of how they run their club/business. Eventually, Al-Fayed took his bag of money and left and Fulham soon disappeared from the Premiership.
+1
but dan, that's not what ayre is saying. he said 200 tickets for 6 matches were going up from 59 to 77 pound. thats 18*6 = 108 pound extra. all those seats are for the people located in the new stand. it's a lot of money for some, but someone else should be able to pay it -especially given it's in the best seats in the house. no one's entitled to a seat at anfield so if you cant pay, someone else will. harsh but thats my take, if it was more people being affected i would feel differently, but i don't think overall it's enough to make such a big deal about it.

now i'm not saying people shouldn't protest, but i'm saying i don't personally think it's that big a deal in the grand scheme of things. protesters are within their rights to complain, and i would field aggrieved in their situation as well if i could not afford my season ticket.
+2
Yh at first I supported the liverpool fans, but then found out the whole story and its not much to get worked up about imo.

"It’s clear that the club’s decision to raise some lower main stand seats to £77 isn’t sitting well with many supporters, but in all the noise, that more than half the seats at Anfield will either have their prices frozen next season of see a decrease—with a full 45% of tickets getting cheaper—has sometimes been lost."

^ and thats from a Liverpool blog mind you.
+6
lol im surprised no one called me out on my math xD
+1
^^ good call bluff. This whole thing is ridiculous, football tickets are a privilege, not a right. And it's a business where the owners want to make money on the huge investment they made into a football team instead of investing that money elsewhere.

It will be funny when the same fans that cried about this will be hopeful in the summer that the owners will splash cash in the transfer market.

and good point above SIF, if they raised the lowest ticket price way more than a standard inflation increase that would be one thing, but nobody has the right to the best seats. If they won't pay then somebody else will fill the seat
+1
Why have FSG done it though? It has been explained that it is only 200 seats for six best games of the season. If they had made the tickets £60, which is still expensive, Liverpool’s profits would fall by £20,400.

Liverpool generate around £35million from ticket income. Had FSG announced a freeze on prices when the new stand was completed, the income would have risen to £37m. The increase means they could generate £39m.

All this for the sake of an additional £2m for the ninth richest club in the world!

The cheapest average season ticket price in the Premier League is £489... Bayern Munich season ticket is £104.... let that sink in.
However, I don't understand the need to increase ticket prices. All these price hike, will only amount to about $2m which is ridiculously low if compared to the amount of money they're going to get from tv. money.
+1
Owner = investor = want to make money off of the millions they put into the club that they didn't buy only for entertainment purposes.
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CaiYYxKXIAA8ROF.jpg

When you chat sheet, you know what happen next. (banter only)
+2
And most of you guys were against me saying Leicester are the real deal a month or two ago. "once Vardy and Mahrez get injured, season over." We've seen dips in form on Vardy and Mahrez and just then that's when their defense actually starting winning them games.
+6
I hold my hands up and say I was wrong! I'm sure I'm not alone.
+7
I was with Shaymoose on this one. I recall somewhere discussing on supposedly tough set of fixtures that Leicester will get found out(not many thought that it would be tough for the other teams as well). TBF was more talking about them being in top-3 or 4, not leading the league in late feb!

1-1 for the Dembele gaffe, Paddy. :D

Well they beat and tied stoke already so they're Real Title Contenders!
+3
Haha true mate. Although me and Townsend puts you in the lead I think
+1
They're bloody unreal. The title is theirs to lose now.
+3
It's their only competition while the other top teams are still involved in others...Also other than playing Arsenal next gameweek the only other team in the mix is United left to play. They just have to keep up outscoring these mid/bottom teams. I think teams next season may park the bus on them. Everything is about their counter, best in the league easily.
+2
The way we outplayed them was through the width of our full backs and having dier sweeping up. If we'd have had Dembele playing we definitely would have won.
+1
Well next time you'll have 2 Dembele's so no excuses :P
