If you combine our form against the "big six", and their form against the rest, you'd have a team that was challenging Manchester City at the top.I think so. My brain isn’t working. Can you explain it in a different way?
OK I'm with you. CheersIf you combine our form against the "big six", and their form against the rest, you'd have a team that was challenging Manchester City at the top.
So the thing to do would be to merge the two teams, have Brendan and our squad for the "big 6" games, Moyes and theirs for the other games... and this season the merged team would I think have 62 points. So still some way behind Man City.
Picked for England LOL that is dragging the bottom of the barrel, they haven't won a single thing in over 50 years and won't anytime soon. Joey Barton, Seth Johnson, Jake Livermore and our Nuge even got a gameYeah all those wasted years playing for Manchester United and getting picked for England, what a twat
Scoring in and getting to the semi finals of a world cup is a bit different to tapping in a goal that was already going in against Andorra in a qualifier.Picked for England LOL that is dragging the bottom of the barrel, they haven't won a single thing in over 50 years and won't anytime soon.

So, considering we're not quite Big Six but not quite The Rest either, this should be an interesting match up. They've lost Rice and Antonio, two of their three best players, while ours are coming back to fitness. We should do thisIt just seems to me that we pick up more points against the 'big six' than West Ham and they pick up more points against the rest than we do ... I thought a mix of the two may have pushed Man City?
I agree that players get picked for England purely as an advertisement for the top 6 big money teams (look how sancho barely gets a look in and might even miss out this year simply because he plays in Germany!) but Lingard doesn't decide the rules. He's clearly not been wasting his time by winning trophies with manchester united and going to the semi finals with England, even if both of those achievements are mostly down to luck, with the easier draw in the world cup and because Man U hadn't signed a much better player in his position yet in Fernandes.Southgate is living of those words "semi final of a world cup" but when you actually look at it Southgate had the easiest path to a world cup final ever and England blew it as normal, beating Tunisia, Panama and Sweden is hardly the stuff of legends.
He lost every game against any decent side.
So Jesse Lingard getting into a team with caps given out simply by who you play club football for and scoring against a medicore team isn't really much of an achievement.
Play for Burnley get picked for England in a world Cup quarter final and score against one of the bigger teams like Spain, Belgium, Germany, Croatia, Brazil, Argentina, France etc is a much bigger achievement.
Do you think Lingard would be on massive wages? I never really got the impression that he took that step to get a giant contract at Manchester United.I'm not knocking Lingard I'm just not going full on media frenzy over him because he's done good at WHU. He has been on the fringes at Man u for years with supporters at most clubs dreading being linked with him during the transfer window.
The best thing he can do for his career is to leave Man u and sign for WHU but by doing so this time next season it will probably end his England career.
Would I want him at Leicester, no as I think Maddison is better and what's the point on signing a 28 year old on huge wages to put on the bench.
