I’d imagine there’ll be at least 1 or 2 changes. McGeeney and his mind games.
First championship game against Down and McGeeney needs to play the mind game card already?

It's becomes apparent that Eurosong competition has become too expensive to host.

Play off final between 5th v 6th. Finishing 3rd and 4th wasn't much use this season in the championship.

Have a feeling Armagh will lose this game and then end up lasting longer in the championship than Down.

did Woodward bow to the public clamour and appoint OGS too early? If he had stuck to his guns and waited to the end of the season would they have appointed him? I think not given the end to the season. but hope springs eternal.

Not a chance! Complete madness to give him the job in the first place. He got a bit of a bounce that all new managers get and a very lucky win against PSG.
His managerial record shows nothing that would suggest he's up to the job of managing a club like United. He'll be gone by March next season and the merry go round will continue.
If anyone at United had any sense they would call an end to it now and go after Poch.

Poch with a stronger panel and players playing to their potential only finished the league season 5 points ahead of United and United have been a total shambles August to December and for the last two months.

Best thing Poch has done is leading Spurs to the CL final and the wins v Man City,Ajax on route to that final was every bit as lucky as United's win v PSG.

A squad he put together for relative peanuts and don't you think he deserves the credit for getting them playing to their potential??
He's also made them a regular fixture in the top 4.
Put it this way, if both of they were in the market for a job now, Poch would have his pick of clubs and Ole would be going back to Norway to manage the pub team he came from.

You got to remember OGS arrived at the right time and had a favourable run of fixtures against low level opposition which in all fairness Jose was making a hames of similar games, but with the dead cat bounce and some players actually bothering to put some effort in they were rewarded with some good victories.
First sign of a good team at Old Trafford was PSG and United got schooled.

Return leg with Pogba in the stands United give it a real go and whilst fortuitous with the penalty exposed PSG's soft underbelly. Credit where it's due.

The OGS fanclub of ex teammates in the media were in overdrive and it was on this wave of sentiment that Woodward was able to fill his next big appointment on the cheap and save a few more $ for the Glazers.

Everyone was a winner until...........................................

No more favourable fixtures than already relegated Huddersfield and Cardiff.  That unbeaten run included  wins against Arsenal,Chelsea (away) in the FA Cup, Leicester,Spurs,Newcastle (away) and took two valuable points off Liverpool in the league.

Chelsea signings?

Do you think a transfer ban will stay in place when Abramovich flashes his cash?

There we have it no last day drama and Manchester City are the first back to back Premier League winners for 10 years.

Great effort by Liverpool however one wouldn't be honest if they didn't say that was Liverpool's title to lose at the half way stage when seven points clear and a draw in the match against Manchester City on January on 3rd probably would have closed the door on any notion of a comeback.

With Guardiola staying around they should finish on 95 to 100 points again next season, the main question is can Liverpool repeat or get close to their points total of this season again or can Chelsea,Tottenham improve with a few good signings and become title challengers?

You been buying titles for years. You were nearly always in the top 3 buying players the years you won the league going bck to the start of the 90's. So don't kid yourself you's are any better than city.

In fairness Manchester United earned the money they spent on players and recently they have paid over the odds on players and wages because clubs and player agents fooled a clueless chief Executive. Manchester City won the lotto with the prize money of a trillion.

It's a fair point to be honest - what odds how you got the money? Professional Sport or Football isn't a game of morals - United had it relatively easy in the 90s too with their financial power.

Its not a fair point when you consider Manchester United became the dominant force in England from the brilliance of Ferguson who had to build the club from the bottom up and a chairman having the patience to keep him on in the late 80s.

Where would Manchester City be without their trillionaire owners? certainly no Pep Guardiola.  As for history, 20 years ago when Manchester United was winning the treble their neighbours in the old main road stadium were battling it out with the likes of Colchester United,Chesterfield and Gillingham in England's 3rd tier division.

All 4 finalists from the PL. Pretty neat, has it happened before?
Never happened before according to BT Sports. Kepa keeps Chelsea's Europa league hopes alive. A German team losing a penalty shootout is a rare sight.

Arsenal stroll into the Europa league final. 7 goals over two legs impressive. Chelsea semi final gone to extra time, Sarri will be sacked if they don't reach the final.
