    I don't understand the vitriol directed against Merson. It speaks in his favour that he straight-up apologised and kept eating humble pie. I also think he wasn't entirely wrong before - 80 million for Maguire is too much. That is nothing against Maguire, he is and has been for a long time a very good player, but 80 ,million? More than Virgil van Dijk, really?

    It's not 1991 anymore, Merson. Everyone on the pitch has to be able to play now. Get with the times you dinosaur.

    • Michael James

      @Peder Hansen and that's before I get to the UEFA Cup, where there were three finalists (Arsenal, Liverpool and Middlesbrough) and a couple of semi finalists (Newcastle) between 2000 and 2006. Serie A had NO winners and no finalists in that tournament during that period, or later in the decade.
      As I've already said: English clubs scored more coefficient points than Serie A in four of the first seven seasons in the 00s. That means that it performed better. If you don't know what the coefficient is then look it up. It measures the performance of ALL clubs from a league and gives an aggregate score.

    • Michael James

      @Peder Hansen if you'd bothered to study the coefficent link that I kindly shared, or looked up ALL of the games that took place in European competition between 00-07, you'd have seen that I was completely correct in my assertion that the PL surpassed Serie A in terms of results in Europe. Clearly you didn't. You're obviously not going to agree with facts. Never mind.
      I'll remind you that players like Henry, Bergkamp, van Nistelrooy, Veron, Scholes, Giggs, Pires, Vieira, Crespo, Ronaldo, Makelele, Alonso, Rooney, Gerrard, Ferdinand - plus too many others to mention - were playing in the PL in 2003. Others like Drogba and Robben arrived in 2004. The PL was very strong in the early 00s, and getting stronger.
      There was a PL semi finalists in the CL every single season between 00 and 04, and two semi finalists and a winner in 05. Also a finalist in 06, and three semi finalists and a finalist in 07. All of this happens before the 07/08 season.
      You have a bad memory.

      @Michael James "It was much earlier than that, as I have shown conclusively"

      no you haven`t shown that imo.. before 2007 prem and Serie A was pretty equal. but people forget this..

      "I disagreed that Serie A was better or more technical, because it isn't"

      well it def was.. because serie a had in general the better.. or at least more technical players up until around 2007. although the difference wasn`t so significant in the 2k`s. like it indeed was in the 90`s

    • Michael James
      Michael James Month ago

      @Peder Hansen 🤣🤣🤣🤣
      No it wasn't! You typed "The Premiership didn't surpass Serie A until 2007/08" - it was this I disputed. It was much earlier than that, as I have shown conclusively.
      The rest (before that) was about which league was more technical, and I agreed that the Spanish league was generally more technical than the Premier League. Also agree that it's a stronger league.
      I disagreed that Serie A was better or more technical, because it isn't.
      I agreed that it was stronger in the 90s, because it was. But since 2000 onwards it's slowly declined and, in general, has not been as good as the Prem. You can disagree with me but the facts are on my side there.
      Can't believe how much of my day off I've wasted on this 🤣🤣

      @Michael James no. italy wasn`t really the discussion.. the discussion was englands position in europe. and you said in your earlier posts that england started taking over in the late 90`s.

      again... you were wrong

    It takes a man to appologise so fair play to him for that, i don`t think there was ever any doubt about Mguire`s ability, it was just the massive fee, but because Woodward left it till the last minute to sign him , we didn`t have any choice but to pay it, but it could turn out to be money well spent, i still think it was a wasted opportunity by those running the club to catch up on our rivals , but i don`t think we really expected anything else from businessmen trying to run a football club.They have turned us from being the biggest club in the world into a small thinking, small spending ( compared to the revenue we earn ) club with no ambition, very sad day for us when these parasites blighted our club.
