    Yep, there is hope, optimism, pessimism, but it is all countered by realism.

    I still don't think I'm deluding myself by saying United can win the league and looks like many agree now. Since you have them in the top 2, as well as the other posters.

    Oh absolutely. Even with last years team, Mourinho in his first season and the initial impact he always has would of got them close. Throw in Pogba, Zlatan seems to of hit the ground running and a few other nice signings? Top 2 looks like a minimum target, winning it all is very realistic.

    Sadio Mane, best signing in ages. Already looks like the most important player of the squad.

    Looks like Schweini will leave, for only 2 million.

    The good thing is his high salaries will no longer be there, but it's a real shame that it never worked out. He is a high quality midfielder.

    Yeah, we just got the post prime article. Still think he could have given us more. Just didn't work out.

    If Mou makes others midfielders click, we might forget the Schweini disappointment easily. He has supported the club in these few matches and seems happy, I am glad he isn't showing any signs of anger or sadness.
    Did he score a wondergoal in your League Cup match as well?

    Not much reason to have anger or sadness if you're going home to get your leg over Ana.

    My mind is just polluted with thoughts of Ana Inanovic images with the caption - ''there is no need to be upset.''

    Rodgers when asked about the Bastian rumours "I don't need a marquee singing that can't run" :D

    No he didn't score any of the five goals, was the best player out there without a doubt though. Basically created three of them, could have scored a couple himself, never stopped running, terrorising Burtons defence. His pace and power are so vital in this team, £32m looks like a complete bargain now. I know it's just Burton and all that but we're clearly miles better with Can and Mane in the team. Hopefully Emre and Origi are fine, Spuds on Saturday should be a good one.

    Absolutely amazing away support tonight btw, sounded loud and clear on TV. Hopefully more of that at Anfield! :p

    Did Mane play against Burnley? No teasing, I didn't watch the match so I was just wondering what went wrong.

    Don't remember you having problems with Spurs in recent years. Better fix that defense though, 5 goals conceded in 2 games, damn. :D;)

    Surprised Arsenal have not picked up Javier Hernandez, they need a top striker; He is probably the best striker available at the moment. I don't think AG will leave Athletico Madrid for a team like Arsenal.


    Anyone here thinks Darmian should be the #1 right back at Utd? Why not play Darmian and Valencia on the right?

    I am not surprised because Wenger's priority is that club's 600 employees get payed, not that the club buys a top striker.

    Don't know, Valencia has done well so far. As Mourinho said we have to wait for September when the club will also play the League Cup and Europa League, then everyone will get a chance to play.

    I'm not sure if he has a future at United. Have to wait and see. I'm not confident about having wingers playing as full back against a top team. I hate these converted wingers. Valencia has made a good start, but not against premier opposition. If everybody else is playing well then that could inspire him and he might be a success. I thought he would have been sold.

    I think Arsenal are a very wealthy team. Hernandez wouldn't break their bank, and would score goals. Why can't Wenger notice this? I can't think of many top strikers who are available ATM, and Hernandez has played in the league. He's clearly better than the strikers they have at the moment; He was brought in by Ferguson from Mexico, scored some very important goals for Utd, had a good season at Madrid (Ancelotti/Kroos said tey are interested in signing him at Munich). LVG and Moyes just disregarded him (they did seem pretty clueless). He bossed the Bundesliga, I can't see him staying at Leverkusen for too long.
