    Gary Neville as just Tweeted 'Good' in reply to a link that suggests Pogba and Sanchez will be 'axed' for the semi-final

    I do hope they let him spend massively if his current purchases are anything to go by.
    He has already come out and said that they can't compete with our spending power!
    The truth of the matter is that FFP doesn't allow you to spend willy nilly.
    You now have to spend within your means.
    Our income has grown massively and continues to grow (especially with a new kit deal looming) but is still less than theirs.
    What he really means is their NET spending power can't compete with ours.
    After the Glazers milk off their millions and the ridiculous contracts they have given out recently they are left with less than us and it isn't getting spent wisely.
    Happy days. We continue to grow at the same time they implode.
    My mate is a match going UTD fan and says it is really obvious that money isn't being spent on the infrastructure.
    The swamp has needed a lick of paint for years. All this talk of stadium expansion is bollocks too.
    I look forward to watching every minute of their demise.

    Mourinho’s signings:

    Mkhitaryan - Failed and sold
    Zlatan - Short-term success, now left
    Bailly - Struggles to stay fit
    Pogba - Future uncertain
    Lindelof - Looked hopeless
    Matic - Short-term success
    Lukaku - Success
    Sanchez - Really struggling

    Nearly £300m spent.

    oh please do fuck off
    This winter will be about the right time for Mourinho to pack his bags
    Some countries will hugely under perform at the World Cup, so they'll be national coaching jobs available

    I agree completely, none of their squad would get into our starting eleven, however I think they have players that under Pep's stewardship would perform to a far higher standard than under Stan Butler.

    Really? Oh dear.
    They won it 3 of the last 5 and now could finish bottom. Even allowing for a few being on loan (Tuanzebe, Fosu-Mensah), that's quite a fall.
