Here's one where Sir Alex didn't see the potential, and it's now cost the club a fortune! What Pogba has to say in the video at the link is interesting.

I'm really looking forward to this season. I think it's another one that will be very hard to call. 7 clubs will be expecting/hoping to finish in the top 4, and (obviously) 3 will be disappointed. A lot of money spent by Man U, City, Liverpool and Chelsea in particular (so far - still 3 weeks to go...), but it remains to be seen if they'll all be worth the fees.

The 7? Chelsea, Man U, Man C, Spurs, Arsenal, Liverpool - and I'll include Leicester as a courtesy, though I expect them to finish mid-table this season. West Ham will hope to be in the mix too. Anyone else?

Top 4 at the end of the season?
My heart says Spurs, Man C, Man U, Chelsea.
My head says ask me after the New Year...

3rd, which any Spurs fan would have given his right arm for at the start of the season, and which I'd be happy enough with this season.

Really? :? Disgraceful - such disrespect to the paying public who had been supporting them all season. :tsk:

I bet they were still there to pick up their pay cheques though - sums up the Premiership totally for me. :banghead: :banghead:
Season 2017/18 Plymouth Argyle

Points 68; Position 7

I BELIEVED It's still coming home. Just not quite sure when.

There was nothing else! It was only a couple of games until the end of the season. Inexperience cost you against Chelsea and the players were spent after that, hence you got pipped by the Arse on the last day.

Just calm down Jimmy, most people on here are happy with harmless banter, you turn it into a nasty swearfest, and not the first time either.
