‘At Chelsea, if we didn’t think we could win the league, or didn’t think we had the quality to do it, we wouldn’t be here working so hard. We respect our opponents and their ambitions, because they have the same ambitions as us, but we want to win the Premier League and we are ready for that.’ - Mou.

Mourinho's second season at various clubs (Chelsea, Inter, RM, Porto) he had managed were always won convincingly cos he usually rectified all the lapses he saw in the first season, but this present EPL is quite competitive unlike before, but it is doable with a lot of hard work as it has been quoted by Special One.

Ronaldo, Bale, James vs Messi, Suarez, Neymar. .....classico is gonna be crazy next season.

€80 mil for a guy who had 4 goals and 9 assists in 30 games for Monaco. That's an epic over-valuation if I've ever seen one. Rodriguez has alot to live up to at Madrid.

ohhhhh my. can this season start already?!
lol... Now rumors saying Man city to hijack Drogba deal
Agueros injuries have really started to pile up over the last 18 months, Negredo is out for like 4 months and Jovetic has never had great fitness.

They're probably a bit short in the striker department tbh, would actually be a decent signing for them.

I'm sure Drogba will go back home to Chelsea though.
it would't make sense to go for a 36 year old to tie them down until Negredo and Aguero are back to full health. Torres is available!!!!

Manchester City have no interest in signing the former #Chelsea star Didier Drogba. [Guardian]

http://www.theguardian.com/football/2014/jul/22/manchester-city-chelsea-didier-drogba

Aaaaand squashed. lol.
If Didier does come back will Oscar give up no. 11? If not what other possible numbers would Drogba wear?
Salah said the game against Wimbledon was his last as No.15, so Drogs could take that.
really ?
You realise drogba was 15 when he joined chelsea, right?

Also salah always wanted 22 so looks like willian may take 17 as hazard is now 10. Its a rollar coaster of number swaps. Btw costa will wear 19
@LOC which number would Salah took then?
idk, he wore 22 at Basel and that's the number on his twitter handle. Maybe he'll take 22 and and Willian will take 17 or 8? No idea mate, just guessing
thats a good idea, Willian should take 17 and Salah 22 while DD will take 15, 8 and 3 should be rested this season.
I do know Drogba wore 15 before he wore 11. I didn't know Salah was switching numbers. If that is the case then 15 it is for Didier, I guess. It would be funny if he was the first player to wear a 3 digit number like 111. :D

United have lost nearly all of their back line this summer with Evra moving to Juve. Carrick is out for 3 months. Giggs gone, Buttner gone, and several others rumoured to be on their way.

So far only 3 new signings for United, Shaw, Herrera and Milinkovic (who?). If I were a United fan I'd be beside myself with the lack of action so far. But in reality being a Blue this is good news. United right now are weaker than they were at the end of the season.

Having LVG at the WC really didn't help them at all. I know there's still about 40 days left in the TW. But to me it looks like they're going backwards not forwards. Yay! :P
I think it's because they're chasing difficult targets (Di maria, Vidal, Hummels) those aren't going to be easy to complete.

Eventually they might/will have to settle for lesser players.
Reminds me of when I was chasing after girls that were out of my league in high school.
+10
theo that's the wrong way to look at it, any decent club would not let the big players go without replacements lined up. there are deals in the works and i do think a lot of these targets are going to go through this summer otherwise why let these players go? rio and vida left on a free but evra still had a year on contract. rio in particular was not offered a new deal.

who is Milinkovic?

lol those players are out of our league eh? i don't think you know what you're talking about.

chelsea61, you're jumping the gun here, no one will hit the panick button as there's a long ways yet until the window closes and transfer talks are ongoing. i for one thought it best to keep evra but was indifferent about rio and buttner.
Lmao.

SiF...what i said has nothing to do with who you let go though. All the players i see Utd linked with are big players (and Blind) so could explain why none of those deals have been done yet.

Of course players will inevitably be signed to replace those that have left, but right now your club are trying to get the best players possible. And if those don't work out, then they'll settle for lesser options (imo)
@SIF. I may be jumping the gun but United need a half dozen new starting calibre players to get back to top 4 standards. Even if United hit their mark and get all their top transfer targets, which is going to be extremely difficult, they still must gel as a team. LVG is a great manager I have no doubt. But he's always been at top teams with the best players already there. United do have mountains of money to spend but with the players they covet I think Theo does make a valid point. Seeking out all the best players, available or not, there's no guarantee that they'll all just drop what they're doing because money is dangled in front of them. If United won the title last year it might be different. Because top players want to play for winning teams and play at the highest levels. Having no stake in Europe this year, it might be more difficult than you think to convince the best players in the world to come on board.
Normally I would say there is done solid logic in your argument SIF, but let's not forgot that there is a certain man named ed woodword in charge of your transfer dealings. I can't honestly say I would be so confident of you guys having replacements lined up with him in charge of that department :/
Why would they come to United to play in Europa?
i don't think we need 6 starters to get into a CL spot, that's a bit crazy.

this same team had the 2nd or 3rd best away record last season but bottled it at old trafford too many times and vs the big teams. There are a few key areas we need to strengthen, and getting a tactical boost from van gaal will help, but i think the main thing missing last year was team spirit and confidence (in addition to more goals of course).

those are obviously intangibles, and it remains to be seen if we can restore that simply by sacking moyes and staff and selling a few players but i dont think we're that far off of top 4, especially since we wont have CL games to worry about.

i think with fewer games we will likely also have fewer injuries. don't forget rvp barely featured last season, and even rooney missed at least a quarter of the games. there are a lot of reasons for me to think 3-4 more player will be brought in this summer, and that will be more than enough to secure a top 4 finish if the squad can stay healthy. the run of fixtures also helps as the team can build confidence in the new style of play and new players before facing a well-drilled top 4 side.

@theo, my point is that we wouldn't just go for "lesser" players or put ourselves in a situation where we are stuck going for players who wouldn't improve us. it sound like we would just buy avg players, which i don't think would be the case. i don't know if we can get all of our "top targets" but then again not all of our top targets will be the reus' of the footballing world, there are plenty cases where the media speculation is just a smokescreen. the herrera transfer wasn't even in the media until a day or two before the club announced the agreement. all i am saying is that i don't think the club would let go of key players without solid plans to bring someone else in.

sry for the length, didnt realize i wrote so much
By lesser I don't mean s**t. But if you don't get Vidal, most likely you will settle for someone not at his level.
I said United need 6 players because the guys on football today at the end of the seaon said United would need up to 8 players to strengthen up to be able to pull themselves out of the mud. Does anyone think that the back up players United have now can step up and carrry the team back into CL and fight for both cups? Not playing in Europe may be an advantage (less games) but it isn't when shopping for the top players and they know they won't be playing in Europe's biggest tournament.
