I'm pretty pumped about this.

Insanity. Pep is a ****ing boss. I was kind of hoping to see him in England though.

No worthwhile openings in EPL...

Except Chelsea, but any manager of Pep's class would be nuts to work for Abramovich.

I expect Mancini to be sacked sooner or later

I think City was in worse shape at this point last year, and still won. Half the season and 7 points is still plenty of room for something to happen.

United could easily drop 3 points to Spurs tomorrow. RvP will probably bail them out once again though. He is so dirty.

Pep should have been the new boss at Arsenal.. Why they have faith that things will get better with Wenger; I'll never understand.

1. Our back four are very suspect.
2. Fergie moaned about Rooney not getting a penalty. I love United, but that wasn't a penalty.
3. The score line is a reflection of the match. In truth, Spurs should have won. United winning would have been robbery.
4. City get Liverpool and Chelsea at the Etihad. United get Chelsea and City at OT, but they still have to go to Arsenal.
5. Tottenham reminds me so much of South Carolina in that it seems they play to the level of their competition
6. I fear Madrid will gut us.

I'm extremely late to the party on this, but I bet Abramovich feels like a genius for sacking RDM. Fans hate him, players don't seem to be fond of him.

Are you serious saying that wasn't a penalty? Really? Rooney was clearly taken out by Caulker, who got none of the ball. It was a stone wall penalty.

In any case, it wasn't a great game, but that's to be expected as the conditions were awful.

DarthVisor, agreed on point 3. Also with the spurs-gamecocks comparison, at least as far as league play goes.

It wasn't. The official let challenges worse than thatgo unpunished several times throughout the match. Giving a penalty that would have been garbage. The match turned out how it should have. Fergie needs to get over himself.

Had United been able to actually finish more, the phantom penalty Fergie is referencing would not have been an issue.

Are you serious? A foul is a foul whether the official was letting worse challenges go is irrelevant. If you stick your leg across a player and get all man and no ball then it is a penalty. No ifs or buts, it was 100% a penalty. Every pundit after the game said it was. Redknapp and Neville were both adamant.

"Fergie needs to get over himself"??! He is the greatest manager in the history of the sport, quite frankly he can say whatever he pleases.
