You'd get decent money on ANY of those three scenarios being accurate.... a further example of the malaise in M16.
On the plus side it's like you'll be getting him for free when Jose goes. Firmino wasn't rated as being up to much when Rogers was in charge of us as he was played out on the wing, then Klopp comes along and changes his position and he's a much better player.

Fred is a decent player but a fourth scenario is Yernited signed him to prevent him coming to Manchester a bit like Sanchez, the strategy appears to be to offer double the wages Citeh is offering.... I'm not sure either Fred or Sanchez are Maureen signings.

Fred was a Woodward signing wasn't he?

Mourinho wanted Perisic, Woowar said no and signed Fred instead.

I think you are most likely correct but who knows for sure?

What must assuredly be of bigger concern than another speedy winger though is their porous defence particularly given DdG seems out of form at mo.

well that'll do for me and I see the Wet Spam fans still get up and leave when they go 3-0 down even if it is in the first half.

I see the Cry Baby reckons Yernited will be in top 4 by Xmas , which was immediately followed by another bore draw at home to a relegation candidate.....I also see the Baby attacked his own players in the media again, he's definitely angling for a pay off of his contract...

Positives from todays match : We moved up a spot to 7th and I still have time to go Black Friday shopping.

Negatives : I don't think the BE server has enough space for them
