Just a hypothetical question I had in my head from reading the Sky cancellation thread. Just say piracy isn't an option, and as an armchair supporter, you're tired of paying BT & Sky £50+ a month to see less than half the games your team actually plays. How much would you pay per month/year to se...

There seems to be an upsurge in the number of players being pulled back when they are on a break. United players do it too and the ‘taking one for the team’ makes a mockery of the laws.

With or without Lukaku playing in good form, I feel this team would greatly benefit from having another top level striker. Having wealth in options up front was Ferguson's secret to success.
