The recruitment at Manchester United at times hasn't been good enough, and the wrong players have been brought in too often. In 2018 however, the squad is strong, as Jose Mourinho's puts his vision for a United team together. But it could have been much simpler for Mourinho if United's executives and previous managers hadn't made such questionable decisions when other available players were out there.This list will put together ten players Manchester United should have bought when they opted for someone else.To keep it in the realm of possibility, each potential transfer I mention has either been linked to United or that player was transferred around the same time United bought an alternative.
As one of the biggest clubs in the world, if not the biggest, Manchester United can command a spending power only to be rivaled by an elite few. Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid, and newcomers to the financial elite Paris Saint Germain and local rivals Manchester City, are the only teams in the world that can match Manchester United's spending power in 2018. Despite more money being pumped into association football year on year, the landscape is changing; huge clubs such as Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Arsenal can't compete with the wages and transfer fees that other clubs can offer to the players at the top level. Putting it like that, Manchester United should be able to pick and choose some of the best players from world football to put in their team, right?Not exactly.
So, you want to know who is going to win the premier league next season. Firstly I am going to cancel out all teams apart from the top 6. It's pretty much impossible that we’ll get another season where a team like Leicester will win it again. I am going to go by who has the best pros and the most cons and also who has the best chance of winning the premier league from 1–10, 10 being the highest.
Recently, Antonio Conte has been under some scrutiny after Chelsea have had some poor performances, and this can been accompanied with some very poor results. This was capped off with a second half collapse against Bournemouth, which led to a 3-0 home defeat to AFC Bournemouth on Wednesday. This included three goals in sixteen second half minutes, including former Blue, Nathan Ake, scoring the third. Ake had left the club in the summer for around 20 million pounds.
Odds are never in your favor when it comes to picking not only the right team in fantasy football, but a winning team. I think this concept, most of all, has become rather construed, especially when dealing with Premier League fantasy football, because it’s as much about skill as it is about the team’s overall functionality. You may have two or three of the best players on your League, but if they’re positioned incorrectly, or aren’t making all the points you had hoped for, chances are you simply didn’t follow the correct steps in designing a world class fantasy team.
From Harry Kane to Wayne Rooney, the Premier League's had some real stars emerge this season. Based on their statistics, ability, and athleticism, these athletes are best known for their incredible success on the field.
Sound the church bells! Liverpool had a lot of possession away from home, and won! This has been all too rare an occurrence in recent times. Prior to this match, the Reds had played 46 away matches in the Premier League under Jürgen Klopp. Those games split almost evenly between Liverpool having less or more than 59 percent of the possession.
Betting on soccer is a billion dollar industry, so it's safe to assume to biggest Premier League Upsets of 2017 cost many gamblers some serious money. It would be remiss of me not to mention the role sports gambling plays in the upset process, as what is deemed an upset is usually determined by odds set by sports books—both legal and illegal.
Jurgen Klopp's 'fab four' (I didn't come up with that) seem to have finally found their rhythm, with Mohammed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho all managed to find the net against Spartak Moscow in the Champions League midweek, the latter scoring three times to come away with the match ball. The 7-0 thrashing made it 32 goals in 9 games for the Reds, since their dreadful loss to Spurs.
What is going wrong at Tottenham? Is it a temporary blip or was last season the best it is going to get for the North London side? Last season Tottenham Hotspur made a real statement in English football as they were the only team to challenge Chelsea for the title, and although they ultimately came up short they were applauded for their performances, their fearless attacking play led by two of the best English players in the league in Harry Kane and Dele Alli alongside their resolute defence marshalled by the Belgian defensive duo of Vertonghen and Alderweireld. They struck a balance in their play which was refreshing and marvellous to watch, earning them admirers across Europe. They were expected to push on this season and were one of the genuine contenders for the title, however following just one win in the last five premier league games. They are already 18 points behind the magnificent leaders, Manchester City.
In any sport, there are many underrated players. When it comes to soccer, players are often overlooked, whether it be because they are outshined by star players, or simply underestimated by their potential. We created a list to bring the light that those players deserve to have shined on them.
