    I wish we would do that for a change and i'm not a fan of starting a week after everyone else either

    I think Pep treats the players like adults and expects them to be "chart" fit before they show up. A few learned that lesson the hard way last season, so I'd expect them to hit the ground running...pun intended...with an extra week with family under their belts.

    This season especially will be long and hard, so ramping in is a good thing.

    Anyone wanting to watch Arsenal you just need to click the link in this tweet (direct link to their site) or go to to their site yourself and sign up (it's free).


    Some may already be signed up. I was one of those who signed up to watch our U23's draw 3-3 with them last season.

    United team vs LA Galaxy:
    De Gea, Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Blind, Carrick, Herrera, Fellaini, Lingard, Mata, Rashford


    Probably only missing Lindelof, Maybe Rojo, Pogba, Mkhitaryan and Lukaku.

    Half their first team and pretty much their back up team just look bang average. How have they only signed 2 players!

    I'm 6 hours infront of BST and picked it up on skynetsports.
    Currently 3-0 to the rags against what looks like a Sunday park team.

    Yeah I thought they would be much sharper than us when we play each other next week (they have this game and another before our game), however if this is the standard of team they are playing, then they can't be taking much away from it.

    Are LA Galaxy any good? When I say any good, I mean in terms of the MLS

    One of the worst teams in the MLS this season, 8th out of 11 in their conference and they played their reserve side 1st half.
