    Liverpool spent as much as United in the 90s

    Chelsea outspent United when Fergie won three titles in a row plus a CL

    Fergie won trophies while City were moneybags

    We’ve been through this several times Dilbert.

    Why do you present yourself as the dribbling internet stream “fan”?

    Main stream TV lacks any real comedy these days, so you have to take what you can get.

    You mean like Giggs, Beckham, Scholes, Butt, the Neville bros? All those players he used his chequebook to buy?

    why are you only calculating a specific period of time ?

    man united have always been the spending and since Chelsea takeover and man city takeover along with other European takeover has lead to other clubs being able to SUSTAIN high spending over a long period of time …

    I knew this would happen with VAR ! people forget there's like one or two debatable decisions and we knew that would be the case, but what isn't happening is cheating isn't happening and have you all forgot what it's like seeing your team lose through filthy diving cheats

    VAR is not the problem... it's human incompetence, which VAR can minimise if used correctly - like it is in Rugby - amply demonstra6ed this weekend.

    First thing that needs doing is to remove Mike Riley ...bell end.

    Your all forgetting, VAR isn't there to re-refferee the game, no, it's there to chalk off good goals due to the ball glancing an arm or a player being a millimetre off side...


    Its ****...bin it.

    I'm just glad that thanks to var we're actually talking about the football again and not refereeing decisions.

    It's really good that it's removed all the doubt and brought some consistency to the decision making, while getting rid of players diving and playing for fouls.

    It's important as well that teams in relegation battles aren't getting robbed of blatant penalties away to the top 6 anymore.
