    Yeah Moyes is in many ways a throwback to a bygone era. One thing that's always struck me watching his teams in the flesh was just how fit they were, well either that or they were just unbelievably motivated because Everton just never stopped running. But that only takes you so far and Fergie wasnt exactly running a health spa either. His record against the top 4 sadly suggests tactical inexperience. But hes never had the players to properly implement complex tactical strategies, Gravesen was never going to outsmart the top players was he, so Moyes probably just played the hand he was dealt. Having said that, Everton literally seem to play the same system week in week out under him so interested to see how he does with top class playersand if he feels confident enough to experiment. Better hope he picks it up quickly...

    Rooney is a very raw footballer who tbh, hasnt learned a thing in his life. He plays exactly the same way he did at 17 and that's just the way he is. I think Rooney's problem is simply that hes lost the hunger that he had, with RVP's arrival bringing things to a head. Fabregas is similar in that hes at his best when he plays with instinct, Barca try to integrate him into their machine and hes just not as good and its a real waste. They should have signed Arteta is they wanted a cog, Fabregas is an artist. Then again Fab will win trophies at Barca that we wont at AFC but personally, I think I'd prefer to be remembered as a great player than just to disappear into the night with a bunch of medals half earned.
    I think he has a major attitude problem and moreover he does not possess the same thirst for success that some foreign players display on and off the field. Just take a look at his nasty comment to the cameras following England's scrappy 0 - 0 draw with Algeria at the World Cup.

    Nothing wrong with that. May as well say only the normal players who play all the big games should get the CL medals
    Well there's a difference between winning a medal, and being a medal holder. People talk about medals as if footballers are magpies who just want to collect shiny pieces of metal when.

    Too many medals are given out these days anyway, even Buttner got one this season ffs.

    I'm not so sure about Rooney's attitude on the field, he's always hungry on the field, too hungry at times in fact. I think the issue is, as his weight fluctuations would suggest (and the smoking), he's not always willing to put in the graft off the field. I think at points that has been the cause of some friction between him and SAF, where he want to play the big games, but hasn't really kept himself in shape so that he's really the best choice for them.

    Sport Witness on this whole thing

    I like Sport Witness, it posts its own reliable info and thoughts as well as talking about and debunking other rumours.
    Most likely false then

    I believe we can win the title next year but it doesn't mean we will. It's gonna being a big transition for Moyes and all of the players id be content with top 3

    But if we get in a battle for 4th place.........

    Great jpegs there of De Gea at his best. It's great to see him racking up this experience with the under 21's. Casillas is getting on; Reina and Valdes are the experienced duo but I'd love to see a Spanish coach take the opportunity to give De Gea the number slot but he'd need to play for the senior team before taking over that mantle.

    I still want to see an English interview from him. Apparently he wanted to answer question in English before the RM-Man United presser at the Bernabeu but didn't get a chance to.

    Is Varela going to be put straight into the reserves just like Henriquez? What do you think will happen Henriquez anyway? I want to see him in the first team. Just giving him a game or 2 and see how he does. It was done with Welbeck if I'm not mistaken. I think he was also allowed in the first team for a bit before being put in the reserves and then being permanently reinstated into the first team again 2 seasons ago.

    Every player at a young age has the potential to be great reading new reports about Walcott afew years ago would make you think he'd be the worlds best winger but look at him now very few players meet their max potential

    I think we should have probably gone for navas he's proven already and as our wingers have been terrible we need quality in that position and zaha as good as he might be, probably won't be playing that much in the first team

    I agree with this. I personally think zaha should go back to crystal palace on a year loan, he's unproven in the prem but if he played for at least 6 months for a relegation club and shines then he'll definitely be good to go for the first team. It seems unlikely for this to happen though unfortunately.

    Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has dismissed reports linking him with a return to England as "absurd"

    If Barca had won the CL this year, Fab would have got a medal whilst being on the bench for all of the important games. Where's the glory in that? May as well get a job as the kitman.
    Not really, you're all a part of a team. Messi can't do his job alone, while he's clearly the integral cog of the team he still needs service and needs his players defending so he can attack(he runs the 2nd least in the team, only victor valdes runs less in a match than messi iirc) also what if you started the most important game in the CL(ryan bertrand e.g.) but you played for 70mins? Does that mean that he's more deserving of a medal than fabregas.

    Winning trophies is better being the star, but I think fabregas got enough game time in order to be considered as having a good role in getting a medal. There's also the examples of hernandez and ole gunner solkjaer.

    Unfortunately he only played 4 games though. And he played for Wigan not Sunderland. He scored against Sunderland though.
