    Oh back to the 'Europea experience' is it? Okay so with Wengers experience I'm guessing his probably won at least one Champions League trophy? Or maybe not. The experience really speaks for itself, don't you think? Look at your own manager before judging another teams. Just go back to fighting for fourth place why don't you.

    Current Arsenal team VS current Manchester United team = Winner: Manchester United

    Improved Arsenal team (striker added) VS Improved Manchester United team (midfielder added) =
    Winner: Manchester United
    That's a good point about experience you made there. I know a lot of people talk about manager experience like it'll guarantee you success but I think player experience is more important. The manager can get to one final after another and get all the experience in the world but if you lose the experienced players in that team you aren't going to be winning anything.

    I think the European experience is important in the sense you have a lot of games to play, and of different importances at different stages of the season. How you rotate the squad and how strong team you take to other teams, how you set up against French sides, or things you need to remember about German teams, are all little tricks that are going to come with experience that ensure you can run both campaigns side by side without detriment.

    I think Moyes will be okay, he's got plenty of experience in how to manage a squad throughout the season, his Everton teams the performances he got are proof of that, he's got a bigger and better pool to choose from now. As for the experience, United do have the benefit of having Sir Alex about the club if Moyes did want advice, plus he has people like Giggs and Neville in those roles who have recent experience he can talk to. Most of the squad don't need hand holding, Vidic Ferdiand Evra Carrick Rooney RVP, even Nani and Anderson are seasoned pros in Europe who have faced plenty of these players before. Moyes will have some to learn but I don't think its a Harry Redknapp at Spurs job, plus we don't realistically have a chance of winning the CL so we've probably got 2-3 seasons at least where the quarters are as far as we are going anyway.

    Or they haven't rejected it as their manager has had to quit yesterday, its encouraging news but the deal is far from done, the ball is in barca's court if they want the money they can sell and Cesc will be happy to join us, or they can keep a happy Cesc with them. Though at least we are finally after a WC CM.

    No point trying to wind people up at this moment in time or even trying to counter anything, not much sense being spoken. Just wait until it inevitably flops, as did Thiago, then come back in and attack with furious lolz.

    That's what I did with Benteke

    I think it's very unlikely that any top tier player will contemplate joining us until at least a year into Moyes' tenure here, just to see how it's going. Players like Fabregas won't want to come aboard a sinking ship, and it's completely understandable to believe that to be honest.

    Why would Cesc choose Utd over Arsenal? Please list the reasons

    You realise Chelsea change managers on a daily basis and still get good players? Just because Ferguson is gone, doesn't mean it's the end of Manchester United.

    He's just a troll mate! (meaning he believes everything the papers/news say). I really don't want to go into another long debate on this matter (if you've missed the drama feel free to look back on this thread, you'll understand what I mean). So lets all just assume that Fabregas is going nowhere at the moment.

    So, a change of manager means all our world class players have suddenly become like conference level players overnight, and Man Utd will be relegated this season? Seems legit. :facepalm2:

    I didn't say it would be the end of Manchester United, I was trying to make the point (badly, I admit) that players like Strootman or Fellaini; while not maybe the most popular of transfers, are the type of players we can expect to buy while we're in a state of transition. Perhaps 'sinking ship' was a too strong, however I can understand why players might think there might be a drop in results, at least in the short-term, after Fergie left and while Moyes gets to grips with managing one of the biggest clubs in the world.

    Better players, better recent success, better chance of winning trophies, better platform from which to continue to build views of how good he is. Choosing United over Arsenal is quite simply the best and most likely outcome should it come down to that.

    Sinking ship was too strong on my part. I was trying to make the point that it's perfectly reasonable for potential transfer targets like Fabregas to look at us and see that short-term at least, results might suffer.

    Bookies have Arsenal at 6/4 and Utd at 9/4. Needless to say Barca are at 1/5...

    But obviously Utd fans know better.

    Speaking of CL contenders, isn't it quite remarkable that almost all of the big European teams have changed their manager this year? Even though Pep's Bayern are going to be routed as favourites, it does make the competition slightly less predictable.

    Quite ridiculous actually if you think about it.

    Did you seriously just use betting odds as substantiation for your view?

    I mean... wow... that's the level of embarrassment where I just feel bad for you.
