    it's an improvement.
    losing to MK Dons which was lower ranked than Burnley then drawing with burnley is an improvement of not letting in any goals

    No easy games in the premiership. Your noisy neighbours crashed to Stoke.

    Its disappointment, considering everyone knows LVG will be manager since before World Cup. But surprisingly pre-season tours were all disillusions how well we are going to be. What it is going to take for us to win proper, creating chances we loved to see under SAF. Hope after the international break, we can buck up, injury or no injury, its no longer an excuse. With Di Maria, RVP, Rooney, Juan Mata, why are we not scoring??? Someone tell what's going on. Its LVG strategy or the team just cannot click...2 points out of 9 is still catch-able but hope no more slipping further. MU all the way.

    We only lost 1 match n 2 draws ... As SAF always say, "Lost 3 or 4 games and you still can win the title," ...


    This season could see some mid-table teams or rest of the teams closing in on the top 4 or 5 teams ... we should see more unexpected results for this season...


    Difference between SAF n others is he will challenge the strikers, like Rooney n Ronaldo to score certain no of goals in a season, in a form of a bet!


    Think during this period i.e. transition period uncertainty of the players like who is in and who is going out whole team seems to be in disarray ... We should be better after the international break ... where transfer have settle down ... injury clear up ... according to LVG most of the players will be fit after that period ... Rojo work permit cleared and Blind is also available ... so maybe this one of the reason why LVG remain seated on the bench ...


    Wonder will there be any more last min signing? Hmm...

    Manchester United have the most expensive squad ever assembled in the Premier League after Angel Di Maria's arrival pushed their combined value over the £400m mark


    - The current Manchester United squad cost £401.2m to assemble
    - It is the most expensive squad ever in the English game
    - Angel Di Maria's move from Real Madrid for £60m has seen United overtake rivals Manchester City, whose squad was built for a combined £344.15m
    - United have also signed Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo
    - Chelsea squad put together for £341.8m, Liverpool £245.8m and Arsenal £209.5m



    Manchester United are attempting to return to the summit of the Premier League with the most expensive squad ever assembled in the English game.

    The arrival of Angel Di Maria this week takes the combined transfer fees of the United squad to an eye-watering £401.2million - and that figure could grow with new signings before the transfer window closes.
    The value of United's squad now outstrips their neighbours and defending champions Manchester City, who are worth a collective £344.15m when the transfer fees are added up.

    Chelsea come a close third on £341.8m following the acquisitions of Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa over the summer.
    City's title-winning squad from last season cost £364.7m to put together, while their successful team from the 2011-2012 season was worth £334.5m.
    United have so far spent £131.7m on four players - Di Maria, Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo - as Louis van Gaal desperately tries to strengthen a squad that slumped to seventh in the table last season.
    But these big money signings are merely an escalation of United's exponential buying over the last decade with 17 members of the squad costing in excess of £10m when they arrived at the club.

    Chris Smalling, for instance, cost £10m when signed from Fulham in 2010, Phil Jones cost £16.5m when he arrived from Blackburn in 2011, and Wilfried Zaha cost £15m. The much-maligned Anderson was £27m, Antonio Valencia £16m and Ashley Young £17m.
    The result is by far the most expensively-assembled squad in the Premier League. And the numbers could increase further if United land £30m-rated Arturo Vidal from Juventus and other last-minute buys.
    United have made Vidal their prime target following the arrival of Di Maria and are involved in negotiations with the Italian champions.
    They are also interested in the Ajax defender Daley Blind, who is well known to Van Gaal, the former Holland coach.

    United's total transfer fees far outstrip those of title contenders Liverpool, who squad was put together for £245.8m, and Arsenal, worth a combined £209.5m.
    As transfer fees grow ever-more extortionate, the price of assembling a title-winning squad will grow higher and higher.
    Already, United have smashed the £400m mark. It surely won't be long before the half-a-billion point is reached.

    Another record broken!

    Burnley showed us one don't need money to be good. Just heart. Obviously quite a lot of overrated overpaid people in the current squad and a clueless manager.

    Instead of football, EPL has become a competition on which team can spend the most money to win the title!

    Still need a defensive midfielder. Someone like Gareth Barry to hold things together at the back while the others chiong in front!
