It is very common to want to move money away from a State that can, at any point it chooses, seize it.

You dont think those Sheiks want to pocket a little extra if they can get away with it?

Its very similar to why wealthy Chinese are buying homes in Vancouver and leaving them vacant.

No Ten Hag for Spurs as he signs up with Ajax for another couple of years.

You have to think that one of the barriers to finding a top manager has to be Levy and his tight purse strings.

That and arriving with the uncertainty starting to hover around some of their players. Like why would Rogers even consider leaving where he is at with Leicester to go there?

I can't help but think that we've dodged a bullet with Ten Hag. I mean honestly, the guy not only lost to us in the semi-final, but in the most spursy possible way!

I'm really hoping it's not Southgate somehow though. I've seen that and to me that would be a terrible decision.

Odd as this may sound, I am actually looking forward to the BHA-Leeds game tomorrow morning. Should be a lot scoring chances...

Oh you’re probably right. I do think Rogers is the next England manager whenever that may be.

Looking at the fixtures if Sheff Wed get a point against Forest then they go to Derby for the final game knowing a win keeps them up and send Derby down.
And it's on! Six losses in a row for Derby.

Game of next weekend is the head to head with Sheff Wed next Saturday with another loss sending them down and keeping Wednesday up.
Unless that is Rotherham get a win from either of their last two to send both down.
Welcome to management!

Glad BHA regressed to the mean and posted some good results down the stretch. Would have been a travesty if any of the dearly departed nipped them.

Crazy scenes, as Anti-Glazier protestors have broken onto the Old Trafford pitch, just 90 minutes before kick off.

Must be a good chance the game gets postponed at this point.

In guessing they'll be smart enough to disperse well before kick off. If they've any kind of PR sense.
Ideally the best thing would have been if it was a joint United Liverpool fans protest.
Show that despite the divide in the fans they're united against that crap.

I’m curious about a points deduction at this point. Surely the FA isn’t super pleased with this situation.

thoughts and prayers to everyone who wanted to watch a football match and had to endure Graeme Sounness and his infinite wisdom instead.
