That's fair enough, and Toure to me is the biggest x-factor for them because you're right when he's into the game he's as dynamic of a player as there is possibly in the whole world. He does some magical things. I've never been huge on Aguero, but I get that a lot of people are, he just seems to fade into the background way too much for me. And although he was obviously banged up, the World Cup was a huge letdown.

And I'm just bitter because I hate watching City do well, better than Pool winning anything though. So I blame the Sheik for everything.

If by always you mean since a shiekh decided he wanted a new toy and spent an ungodly amount of money to buy anyone he could then sure I'll go with that. Also Toure and Silva are really the only 2 entertaining guys they have.

There are plenty of cool signs, hell Arsenal even has one, but I grew up on this crap. Hearing 50k chanting ooo ahh Cantona still gives me the chills.

Well the jerseys are about the most hideous things in the world, but they made the Glazers a lot of money and that's really all they care about.

And you can't call Man U the Yankees with Man City around. And if anyone in the world is the Yankees of soccer it's PSG.

I'm not sure what hypotheticals you're referring to, unless you meant the comment bat half the posters here. And I'll check back after the season.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

The dedication is both amazing, and slightly scary.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

And if you're counting on him doing that again without defenses literally pooping themselves over Suarez you're insane. And how did he do in the World Cup? He scored a goal because Rooney dropped an absolutely angelic pass on his foot that half the posters in this thread could have scored.

If you really believe in him filling the void then I'll have a few of what you're having, and then I might actually believe that Man U has a shot at winning the league this year.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Oh there's nothing budding about the rivalry between Man U and Liverpool, and I seldom ramble before I'm drunk.

Losing Suarez, and Gerrard being at the end of it. It's going to be a rough transition for them. Some of their signings may or may not work out well, but you cannot replace Stephen Gerrard or Luis Suarez. And you sure as hell can't do it quickly. Adam Lallana is not a name that strikes fear into the hearts of opponents.

Taken out of context this means nothing, he's likely just in the middle of an epic trip to white castle. The likes of which movies shall be made of.

There's still a solid personal pan pizza left in there somewhere.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Oh to know his thoughts at the time.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Is that from a restaurant? Because if it is I'm going there as soon as I figure out where it is and I'm never leaving.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Solid bit of history (I'm a big Crew fan), but Fulham was relegated last year.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

And Lebron James owns part of Liverpool. That said they're still evil.

If you want a team to compare to the Yankees (buying your way up wise) it's Manchester City with Chelsea in a close second place. At this point Arsenal has been spending more than Man U. Manchester United got to where they are mostly because of an absolute legend of a coach, and the class of 92' (Google it if you don't know) mostly home grown talent that led to one of the greatest midfields ever assembled on a soccer field. Not at all the Yankees other than that they won a lot, in that way they are similar.

Full disclosure I'm a lifelong Man U fan ever since watching Peter Schmeichel, and Eric Cantona when I was a little kid. But they are actually one of the better teams to follow at the moment, everything is in flux at Man U right now. 1. New coach 2. lots of players will be on the way out and by the end of the January transfer window on the way in as well 3. They aren't as dominant as they have been, and will have to fight and win in different ways than they have to get back to the top. 

Other than the big boys Tottenham would be a decent team to follow, and Everton with Roberto Martinez has a chance to do very well as well.

The thing to keep in mind with the EPL is if you pick a team aside from Man City, Man U, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Arsenal then you're never going to be cheering for the team that wins the league. Ever. And you can probably cross Liverpool and Arsenal off that list but there's a chance for them at least. Very few teams can financially afford to keep a player that teams like Madrid want to buy, even fewer have the panache to keep a player like that happy at their club. It is not a level playing field at all.

An example of this being Southampton, they had a lot of talent last year and had a decent season as far as Southampton goes, then bigger clubs came in and offered them amounts of money that they can't afford to turn down, and they'll likely end up relegated this year.

Was he afraid of Ohio State playing Ghana in football?

Comment 19 Aug 2014

He blends in with normal people surprisingly well sometimes though. He probably left Kiffin in charge and made the trip north on his broom.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Which one of those two can we compare Gibson to right now? Obviously there are plenty of exceptions, but I'd also say that nobody really expected Braxton to be the starter going into that year, and Pryor didn't start every game if you remember, and one of those 9 was not the bowl game. 

But both of them were higher ranked passers than Gibson is. Nobody was wavering on whether they'd take either of the 2 as a qb or whether they only wanted them as a WR. 

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Completely different, pretty much everyone though if Mo C came back he would have been a first rounder. And if he would have won his case against the NFL he very well might have been a first rounder that year. Braxton hasn't been rated that highly by anyone really. 

And a 4th rounder? He wouldn't have been a 4th rounder according to most draft guys this last year, so he misses a full year with 2 shoulder surgeries on his throwing arm and gets drafted higher because he checks out ok? Huh?

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Give the guy a break, everyone wants to know how it's going to affect the Buckeyes on the field, people follow him on Twitter to hear things other than how sad he is for the kid. Everyone should be sad for Braxton, that should really go without saying that Herbie wishes he wasn't hurt, and hopes he recovers quickly.
