    wtf? i never accused you of saying anything other than exactly what you wrote! 

    I couldn't give a shit what his name is, the player is phenomenal for 22yo. 

    Nobody can predict the future. Not even you.

    Of course, you've made your prediction and I've made mine, time will tell I guess.

    I said I think Neves gets overrated by people for that reason, still think he is a good player but not as good as some make out.

    I'm sure he will end up having a great career and will probably move to a bigger team either this summer or next.

    He's only decent because he scores 1-2 bangers apparently!?

    I think he's the complete DM. I think the whole team flourishes as one unit - but he dictates everything, which is incredible for a 22yo. 

    They have a very similar style to the Leicester team that won the league. If they invest over summer and not lose key players they will be contenders for top 4 and maybe contenders for the league next season. Probably have to clarify on here that being a contender doesn't mean i think they will win the league.

    They won't contend the league, even if they get top 4 next year they will be at least 20-25 points off the winners. They could have a season like Leicester are this year at best, that isn't being title contenders. 

    I never said Neves wasn't a decent player, stop making things up - I just think he gets slightly overrated for the fact he bangs in a couple of screamers every year.

    If his name was Dave Smith you wouldn't give a toss about him.

    Its laughable how he puts '2nd best DM in the whole league' 😂 like those 4 stats are the only important attributes. HA. 

    There's a reason why clubs have gone cold on him, even Southgate doesn't fancy him. 

    When i watch West Ham, teams are cutting through them like butter, and i think Rice, tactically seems very naive. I watched the Brighton, City and Leicester games and was just not surprised they are where they are. I don't watch every minute he plays liek you, but i've seen enough to formulate an opinion. He's obviously young enough to improve.  

    He wouldn't get in the team at United - McTominay and Fred are probably our 2 players of the season and he's simply not better than either than them right now. Even our backup Matic has been very good since coming into the team - i can't stand him but fair play to him. 

    If we want to get back to competing we can't be looking at players like Rice/Longstaff. All of Ole's signings so far have been excellent. 4 out of 4 are starters. 

    To be honest, I wasn't saying he is the second best DM in the league like that guy in the tweet, was more just showing some stats that show he is good at what he does.

    He does get overrun sometimes but a lot of that is down to how poor the rest of the team has been, he can't do everything on his own - he will get a big move soon and flourish as playing with better players consistently will make him look even better than he does already.

    Not sure how you know clubs have gone cold on him, are you a board member of all the top PL clubs? Also Southgate has gone cold on him too? He played 90 mins in the last England game and Southgate hasn't picked a squad for 4 months now so not sure how you have worked that one out...He didn't play a couple of games after one bad game against the Czech Republic but that's not exactly unusual for a young player and Southgate has also been pretty rotation happy during the qualifying campaign so I don't think you can look too much into that.

    I do also find it funny that you say you can't be looking at players like Rice if you want to get to the next level yet are happy with a midfield of Fred and McTominay? Fred has improved and McTominay looks a decent player but do you really think you can start competing for the PL and CL with them in your starting 11? Serious doubts on that for me...

    Neves is 22. Fantastic footballer - who will move to a huge team very soon. He's the engine for Wolves, simple as that. 

    Meanwhile... nobody is more overrated than Rice, talk of him died quickly! He'll look incredible in the Championship no doubt though next season. Every fan in the world would pick Neves over Rice - he's better in every aspect. 

    Neves, Pogba, Fred, Fernandes diamond would be perfect.

    Rice is a shining light on our shitstain of a season, I watch him every week which I'm sure you don't and those stats are pretty impressive for a player who is meant to be massively overrated. He isn't meant to be a playmaker.

    If we do go down he will end up at one of the big teams in the league, no doubt about that. Tbh he probably will even if we stay up, wouldn't surprise me if ends up at Man United tbh. 100% improves your starting 11.

    In this current state - Wolves are not far off being real title contenders. They are fucking unreal, really impressed by them. If they can build over summer instead of lose quality they will be dark horses imo. United should go all out for Ruben Neves. 

    Says Henderson and Rice are average yet bangs on about Neves and Herrera. Caught up in the classic continental hysteria about 'cultured' European midfielders.

    Neves is a decent player but people cream their pants over him because he bangs in 1-2 screamers a season.

    Wolves are also absolutely miles off being title contenders even in the current state of the league, they're a very good side who can make a charge for the CL places potentially (tbh thats only really because the other usual contenders are so all over the place) but contesting with Liverpool and Man City? Come on...

    Complete PR stunt 100% 

    Course it fucking is, wants fans to feel sorry for him so tries to get the press to paint him as a victim.

    We all know nothing is too low for The Sun as well so of course them and Neil Ashton are involved. You've even got his mate Neil Custis writing up bollocks defending Woodward now, do they honestly think people are this thick?

    I could run that midfield ffs. He’s a decent player nothing more, the fact he’s Liverpool and England captain is fucking hilarious. 

    In all seriousness I do think player of the year is a bit much but Klopp regards him as the the main man in midfield now, he's a leader and captain of the CL winners and runaway Premier League leaders - I think he's a bit more than just 'decent'

    Roux even goes as far to say that he is rubbish which is absolutely ridiculous, Klopp doesn't suffer fools and would of binned him years ago if that were the case.

  9. Yeah I can't see anyone stopping them, the world is devoid of truly top sides at the moment. The usual powerhouses such as Barca, Real and Bayern are all below par and I think Juventus are not as good as they were a few years back.

    City need a clear out as well, how Otamendi still plays regularly is baffling - he's a complete liability now.

  10. Man United have a very low net spend for what they could and should be spending.

    However, the money has been wasted and spending more would of probably led to even more being wasted, I can't deny that.

    Once again this falls back on the Glazers for letting a man who specialises in getting sponsorship deals in make footballing decisions. Everything shit going on can be traced back to the Glazers. You are just lucky that Fergie was such a genius that he managed to get through the first half of their tenure at the club still winning things but the cracks were already there for all to see by the end, replacing Ronaldo with Valencia is the main one that comes to mind that something wasn't quite right. United could blow any other club out the water in the transfer market with their own cash but this is being used to pay back the bullshit loans and interest payments.

    The whole Woodward house attack is all a bit fishy got me as well, like Scott said this happens a couple weeks after he gets Neil Ashton in to improve his PR, also happened when none of his family were home and then Ashtons paper (the fucking sun) run the story - I smell a rat, maybe little Ed is looking for some sympathy?

    Klopp did wanna get rid of him initially apparently. Doesn’t walk into City’s side does he. It’s not exactly hard atm as apart from the top 3 everyone else is a fucking joke. Doesn’t get in Chelsea’s midfield either 

    Fernandinho is ageing and is Rodri really any better than him?

    I think you could make an argument him getting in the Chelsea team as well, especially on current form. Kovavic, Jorginho and Kante started the season well but are tailing off a bit now.

    He’s average at best playing in a fantastic team. If he was starting for United we’d be saying how shit he is.....

    No way, plays basically every game got the runaway league leaders. Klopp would of binned him long ago if he wasn't a great player. 

    Sure playing for a really good team helps but if he wasn't that good Klopp would of replaced him.

    He's just a quite unfashionable player. He walks into any team in the league on current form.
