    Zidane's job hangs entirely on the PSG clash.

    People shit talking Eden Hazard's form this season should take a look at the guy who just won the ballon d'or.
    Over a hundred shots and just 4 goals to show for it.
    World class.

    Costa was hot and cold for over a year.
    The main issue is that Morata isn't the same type of striker and he's being made to do a job he's not adapted to.

    Surprised Chelsea haven't tried a different setup, their current one is toothless as hell.

    Feels like Real Madrid hasn't done the best job transfer-wise the last year or two. Benzema has been very up and down in form since always and Bale is as fragile as Wilshere and Diaby, so what are you left with? A 32 year old Ronaldo soon fit for the retirement home and a bunch of youngsters Zidane is hyping who don't seem to do much.

    Honestly getting some Wenger-light vibes from Zidane. Quotes like "I don't need signings, I trust the players I have" feels lifted straight out of the Wenger handbook, combined with their placement in the table and how far off they are from the title race.

    Madrid have a good number of great young players, but they don't play. In addition, not having a real replacement or competition for Benzema has hamstrung them as well. Zidane is following the pattern set by Ancelotti.

    Maybe he should have done a better job managing him

    Need City to smash Pool tomorrow so Spurs can make it back into the top four.

    The bloke before didn't seem to do too good a job at that either.

    Remember when Costa kept taking the ball out wide towards to corner flag?
    Good times.

    What like you're hero Mourinho?

    The unfortunate circumstance of Costa wanting to leave is the only thing I regret happening.
    Conte did the right thing selling him. You don't give in to player power.

    Doing the same with Luiz this season has turned out to be of great benefit to Christensen. A young player finally getting his chance.

    Sure you get flaws with the player. Still Chelsea were a scarier side with costa in the team. Now they've spent a lot of money and gone backwards and Im less worried about their side.

    Not so great for Luiz. Got one decent season out of him I guess after selling him for a near record fee to PSG and then buying him back last minute.

    So Sir Alex Ferguson who won the title in his last season and then United spending £300M and lumbering 15 odd points behind 1st is forwards after finishing 6th last year?
    (under your hero Mourinho)

    Also, that team smashed you 4-0 last season. Knocked you out of the FA cup, and completely dominated you earlier this season.

    At least try and be logical with your trolling.

    Fergie didnt leave utd in great shape, a lot of those players used in his last season were near the end or asked to delay retirement. It was always gonna be a big rebuilding job. Proven by the fact its still a rebuilding job.

    I never said it was solely Mourinho's fault, you clown.

    We're addressing the fact that Man United have spent more than Chelsea, yet have been in a far worse position.
    We've won two titles in the last 3 years, and we're supposedly moving backwards?

    Bitter Man United 'supporter' who is mad, that Man City are the only relevant club in Manchester now.

    Oh right, you were switching up the subjects so much it was hard to keep up. Was talking about how chelsea are less scary now with no costa and we ended up talking about man utd and luiz.

    Sure chelsea have done better than they probably should have. Combination of having some great managers and great players, and the competition being lack. Man City have taken years to get to this level, arsenal are falling further behind. Spurs and liverpool have been fairly solid top 4 teams. And Man Utd has been playing hot potato with managers with no director of football, hardly surprising its taking so long when you have fans asking for attractive football and instant success. Theres also the man utd tax, no way man utd gets kante for 30mill

    About as funny as putting your title hopes on Smalling and Jones in centerback.
