Nah it was made perfectly clear that when Harry came in he told Levy who he wanted and levy had to try and get them.

It was him who set up the program that saw us bottom of the table with 2 points when Harry came in and the only reason he went for him was because the fans made it clear they were going to protest before the Bolton game calling for him, Ramos and what ever his name was[the guy who picked who to try and sign, ended up at Liverpool after wards for about a year].

City have already said his pretty much screwing about with Ade and trying to get a much lower price to the original 8M that they agreed.

As for Modric last year he wanted to go to his dream move of Chelsea now its Real, I don't mind selling out best players abroad.

Opening day nerves maybe and not the first time a team coming up has nearly shocked the champs.

But yeah play like that against a top 4 team or in the CL and you would probably let in 4 or 5 goals.

It's like we've just completely forgotten how to defend.

But didn't you find that with most English teams last year? Apart from Chelsea who parked the bus everyone else had this suicidal type game plan and got torn apart by European teams and quite a few games in the league had some of the poorest defending ive ever seen.

Maybe so, but for a team such as us who've been universally heralded for years for havin such a brilliant defence, it's totally unacceptable.

Got fucked over with my dream team. I just put a few players together for a team as I always pick my team at the last minute in case of an injury or a transfer like RVP. Went to do my team about an hour before the deadline as I was out all day and the website wouldn't load until after the deadline. Now I have Clint Dempsey until the end of October.

Still made 2nd place after the first weekend in my mini league.

I fell victim to that last season. Luckily you can change players once a week or use a wildcard. Even better in that situation, there were so many people who complained they did something to help everyone. Can't remember what it was though...
YOU for Yakuza 5!
It's the closest thing we'll get to Shenmue III for the forseeable future...

Apparently, the conditions are that the transfer fee goes directly to Ade's charity, and that we're still paying him £100k a week for the first two years of his contract. The big question is whether or not that money will be classed as staff wages or another type of expense, because with the FFP coming in, we can't really afford this type of shit. If it is classed as wages, then we probably would've been better terminating his contract and paying around £18m compensation. Yet another example of how big a mistake Mark Hughes' appointment was.
