Mane has his banjo/cow's arse moments quite consistently. For someone who can contribute some fine goals it's quite remarkable.

Many of Sterling's are not clean strikes. Was it a late goal at Bournemouth a year or two back? It had the classic appearance of a diabolical deflection except it was a miss-hit.

Even yesterday's was off the underside of the bar and shots that do that tend to be of the thunderbolt variety.

Luckily for City and more so for England Sterling is a net contributor.

Playing my wild card was definitely the right move. Here are the points since I played it!

You should check out the August one and the overall. Much better reading.

The only reason I went off Spurs was, apart from their ridiculous fans, was the fact they killed Dean Richards.
Forgot all about Dean ,he was great player for saints.The first i remember that spurs stole from us was Martin Chivers as a boy i was very very upset and dean is one of the many since. as for Liverpool no wonder they are playing so well their team is full of stolen saints players

Stolen Saints players well that's a spin on having owners being pimps and selling off their best hookers from their stable. The Scousers came looking for a BJ and you offered them ones who could perform or allege to perform a wide range of services at a premium price. I am pretty sure you offered buy 5 and get the 6th one free. I know Scousers are usually thieves but even they would get off if a case like this ever went to court.

We got 20m quid for Lovren. I don't think it was Saints who got ****ed.

When you're as bad as I am at Fantasy you take the small wins.

I should get a manager of the month trophy so in 9 years when you've all moved on to much better things I can come on here and laud my September 2019 over anyone who is foolish enough to read it.

Glad I played my wildcard so early though as now in contention in all my leagues.

It's a bit sad when you see the line-ups for this United vs Arsenal match. Two very average sides.

yeah I thought that and then watched the game and concluded they'd have to improve to reach average.

Main question is who is worse value for money, Pogba or Pepe?

As Hooky said Saka looked promising, McTominay scored after I transferred him out on Friday and the Lineman made the woest offside call ever....

It's not all bad news, if you combine the points Arsenal and United have got this season they'd be in joint first place, well second due to goal difference

There's no natural leader in either side. Not tonight, nor in most games this season for either team.

Bit harsh.

A derby game is always best understood by the two sets of fans involved.

The now infamous "Battle for 7th place" derby between United and Arsenal is no different.

I think Yernited will need to improve to get 7th, last time they were this bad after 7 games they finished 13th.

Mate, I'm all over the little wins in FF. I'll be near the bottom in January, don't you worry.
