Heh.

Saints fans today:  NOOOOoooo!  Please don't take Sadio Mane, he's so awesome!  How can we replace him?  If he leaves I swear I will stop following this club because they are so greedy and stupid!

Man U fans today:  NOOOOoooo!  Please don't sign Sadio Mane, he sucks!  We screwed up on Pedro and we somehow think this is a replacement?  If we comes here I swear I will stop following this club because they are so cheap and stupid!

Hah.

I'm all like, "this is just posturing so that by the time next summer rolls around we'll be used to the notion that someone is going to come in and buy him."

Mane is pretty magical when he's "on" but he doesn't have the consistency yet to as awesome as we think he could be. Maybe he'll be that guy this year, who knows?

I saw most of the Man United - Club Brugge games that played out last week and today (in the Champions League final qualifiers). My only interest was to see how Club would fare (as a Belgian fan). Last week, in the away game, Club did fairly well, holding it to 2-1, until the very last second when Fellaini scored a 3rd goal. 3-1, and an almost impossible task now for Club. Today's return game at Club was an absolute joke. Man United sliced and diced the Club defense and won 0-4, with 3 goals from Rooney. If you ask me, a complete embarrassment for Club. No energy, no desperation, no nothing. Wow. How is this possible?

Interesting for me also was that Club's big transfer of the summer, acquiring Hans Vanaken from my team Lokeren, didn't start in either game. He did sub in both games but was a non-factor. Club spent 5 mill Euro on his transfer, a pittance in the EPL, but a HUGE amount in Belgium.

Anyway, Man United is back in the Champions League after one year away.

Thoughts on Saints' dismissal from Europa League yesterday?

Better we're out now than perpetuate a totally unrealistic challenge with a further number of pointless matches that could easily have further undermined our already useless premiership campaign. Saints for the League Cup!

I know it doesn't exactly work like this, but say we had won that game. I'll switch out Midtjylland with SFC. We'd be playing

Napoli
Club Brugge
Legia Warsaw

Would it have been fun to play those teams 6 times? I kinda think so.

But then I also understand how much of a death sentence Europa League can be be for many teams and therefore this might be better for us.

We weren't ready for Europe.

This season I'm not sure we're even ready for the Premiership

you all saw what my team Lokeren went through a year ago. Yes, they qualified for the Europa League group stage, and it was a huge amount of fun to experience it, but in the end, it killed them in Belgian league play (not making it to Play-off 1)

Nothing like a 3-0 win and a 10th place standing to buoy the spirits!

I watched the first half of this game, and I really couldn't believe that the halftime commentators were complaining that the Norwich player shouldn't have been sent off.

He literally grabbed the So'ton attacker by the neck on the throw-in for the first yellow card, and then the second one was an equally as stupid foul on a potential through ball.  I don't know how either of those aren't yellow cards, yet at halftime they were pleading for the referee to not alter the outcome of the game so much.

How about ol' douchebag doesn't make 2 stupid plays in the space of 5 minutes to put his team in a bad spot?

Indeed! It was great to see them playing as a cohesive unit again. Restored my faith a little, especially after some of the stuff we were told by an insider at the club.
