    Source (agent): "#MUFC are close to a major signing and will start leaking out to media outlets."
    That guy has actually created fake accounts just to say "Forget the abuse, I only read your twitter as it's the most reliable news"

    What a load of rubbish hahaha

    Would you guys welcome a loan deal for Thiago? I reckon it is something that will favour both clubs.
    Seems like the answer is no

    We'll be travelling to Swansea for our first Premier League fixture. Correct me if I'm wrong but we haven't won a game there since they were promoted? They're a pretty strong team but I just hope we win our first game this time round otherwise if we don't, even if it is just after one game, question marks will be raised of Moyes from the media ready to pounce on any mistake Moyes makes, just like with de Gea.

    Disagree. He's got a lot of calls/rumours correct. Obviously he can't always get them spot on but he turns out to be right quite a lot of the time (but not always). One of the best twitter sources IMO.
    You need to get better twitter sources...

    He gets calls correct because he copies what everyone else says and reports it as his own, he calls things as 'exclusives' of his own when other sources/reporters are the one who made the claim. He gets a massive amount wrong.

    Go check out Indyliar and all the journalists who get pissed off at how many people follow Indykalia.

    The fact he retweets the idiots who think he knows what he is talking about makes it worse lol

    If we get Thiago it would be the best signing for us since Ronaldo, a player of his class for 15mil is so cheap, Hazard, Moura, Martinez, Oscar, Gotze and Neymar have gone for more than double and Thiago is on par with them, De Gea has to work his charm to convince him to come, Moyes best not wait till July 1st, he should try and sign him as soon as possible.

    http://www.barcaforum.com/showthread...antara/page425

    This is a good read and they constantly update the status on Thiago.
    Same level as Martinez, Hazard, Gotze and Neymar. That's utter BS.

    Instead of being a prick to people all the time, why not share the "good" twitter sources then? Please do.

    It's a good thing were usually slow starters..oh wait :^_^:

    The media will be ready to pounce, even if we draw a match. Swansea away is a tough start to the season!

    Encouraging stat - David Moyes has never conceded a goal against Swansea, winning three out of four games.

    december and february are looking alright as well. I can see us being 3rd up until november/december, but im pretty hopeful of us winning the title.

    For anyone who is interested in betting-I'm thinking i will put a bet on utd to win around the end of november when i imagine we will be about 5/1 to win. At the moment chelsea and utd are favourites to win at 9/5, while city are 11/5 to win the title. Usually i try to predict the swings of the title race and bet on the top 3 teams when their odds are over 3/1 so no matter who wins, im profitable. For instance last year i bet on Utd to win the day after city won the league when everyone was predicting city to win it for the next ten years. then when utd were clear at christmas, i put a bet on man city so i was guaranteed a profit (unless chelsea had somehow won it).

    DECEMBER

    Dec 3: Everton (h)
    Dec 7: Newcastle United (h)
    Dec 14: Aston Villa (a)
    Dec 21: West Ham United (h)
    Dec 26: Hull City (a)
    Dec 28: Norwich City (a)

    FEBRUARY

    Feb 1: Stoke City (a)
    Feb 8: Fulham (h)
    Feb 12: Arsenal (a)
    Feb 22: Crystal Palace (a)

    hopefully liverpool start the season poorly and finish strongly- city and chelsea both play at anfield in their last ten games.

    Do Barcelona have to sell if we bid 17m euros? A loan is something that will favour all three parties here. Of course, if Barcelona are willing to sell, then Moysie, sign him up.
    As has been said the only reason this whole story is floating around is Barca had a release clause at something like 90mil, but because he didn't play enough games it dropped to 17mil euros. He wants more game time and is willing to move to get it. If we bid the release clause its out of Barca's hands and in Thiago's. It basically makes no sense to loan as we would be getting a £25m+ player for £15m not to mention if he plays well here for 2-3 season we could be looking at a Fab-Arsenal when he returns. Basically we would be pretty much guaranteed to make money if we buy him.

    What a horrible first 5 games. Can already see the ''United in crisis'' headlines from the tabloids if we don't win against Swansea, I just hope none of our supporters fall for such BS. Compare it to City, who have a piss easy start aside from playing us and we could easily be playing catch up before the Autumn.

    Newcastle (H)
    Cardiff (A)
    Hull (H)
    Stoke (A)
    Man United (H)
    Villa (A)

    A small positive about going to Anfield early is that Suarez will still be suspended (if he's even there still) and they've started the last few seasons poorly. No doubt they'll still raise their game for us though :rolleyes:

    Yeah, ridiculous to claim that a kid who has started 58 times for Barcelona in the last two seasons might be good.
