Is it just me or have all four of the top teams got weaker and weaker as the summer has gone on. The only team that seems to have improved their squad this year has been Man City.

To be fair, it wouldn't have took much to improve our squad. ¬¬

This is when we need parv to say if he's any good, since he watches Italian footy.

Posted this yesterday which i believe was all over red cafe (I was sent it by a mate I would never go on there).

Firstly, don't shoot the messenger, I don't do WUMS, I am merely passing on the details of a phonecall I received just now from a mate with some pretty reliable connections in the press and at United.

Basically he said the following:

Vidic isn't injured, he is in fact in the process of being sold to either AC Milan or Barcelona for £55 million and that is the reason he has been withdrawn "injured" for two weeks. He has caved in to pressure from his missus and although United have offered to up his salary by £30K he has said no. He is apparently due to be sold as soon as we secure his replacement, an as yet unnamed 6'4 Dutch centre half...

It gets worse...

We were 60 days from administration, £60 million of the £80 million we got for Ronnie has gone on the debt, up to 15000 ST holders haven't renewed and although there is a 20,000 waiting list, very few have taken up the offer of an ST. Fergie has been given the job of releasing assets for top price (Vidic, Ronaldo etc) and to win the league using youth players and/or cheap acquisitions and United are in the process of massive cost cutting to pay off sums we currently can't afford. He is also being pressured to buy players on the cheap now and sell at profit in the coming years for the forseeable future to service the repayments on the debt.

As I said, I am only passing this on, don't know how much, if any, to believe but wondered if anybody on here had heard anything along the same lines?

If only... ^_^

They're resigning Jaap Stam!

If they were having problems with money, why would they increase such a massive asset's wages by 30k. I hate my bandwith being took up by shit like that. Sunderland message boards are full of shite like this pre-season too.

If that were true, and it's a massive if, it would be heartbreaking for football. I don't like Man Utd, but you don't want to see them decline due to outside forces.

Well you needed someone. Looked decidedly dodgy at the back on Sat.

Does the price really matter?

And that won't change regardless of who we get in. -_-

EDIT: Yes, because Everton now have £24m to spend. I want Gollum to take 'em down. ¬_¬

EDIT: Everton fans aren't happy. ¬_¬

I'd be fucking well happy.

I'd be pretty damn happy with 24million for lescott. Shit, you could buy Hangeland several times over with that, and I'd take Hangeland over Lescott.

Don't know what to think of this, always thought Campbell was past it when he joined Portsmouth.
