Very interesting read. It probably explains why heaven and earth was moved last season to get them champions league. Tick tock.

No not really, they got 66 pts in 18/19 and 66 pts in 19/20, so no improvement overall as a team. They got very lucky last season, with dodgy officiating and other teams under performing getting them top 4.
Leicester were pissing all over them at Christmas, but their form in 2020 has been dreadful.

And Chelsea, hampered by their transfer ban, and forced to play kids more than Frank would have wanted to, I’m sure, struggled at times.

These two factors, plus official's willingness to be conned by Penandez, meant the rags stumbled their way into the top four.

Hopefully, those two will be better for the entire season, and Wolves, Everton, El Arse, and yes, even Spurs, will improve enough to ensure that the Trafford scumbags really do finish mid-table.

Here's an interesting article that sets out that Untied's financial incompetence, combined with loan restrictions that prevent spend, means that they knew that they couldn't actually buy Sancho but were priming their pet media to fool their own fans into thinking they not only could but would buy him.

The figures make much of salary costs but don't seem to include the additional lending costs for the purchase itself.

Make of it what you will.
