Sigurdsson is a great midfielder. Well worth the money.

lol @ hazard...you screwed up bigtime bro. Chelski is an aging team with lots of prima donnas, many of which didn't pan out, they were remarkably lucky to have won the CL (let's be honest). Yeah roman might throw in some new players but based on his recent involvement he's not as driven as before, and now that he got his CL trophy i bet even less so. Hope u have fun trying to get Torres to score lmao

Well, at least it wasn't City..As a United fan, i'm becoming more and more bleak at our prospects with Kagawa/Dortmund now trying to play hardball. It wouldnt surprise me if we started the new year with only 1 minor signing despite our clear midfield woes.

Whatever you think of Chelsea, "luck" alone doesn't win you the Champions League. Yeah, I could understand your argument if they just reached the quarter finals and their luck ran out, but it was their determination and will to overcome the odds, even if on paper, they were not as good as Bayern Munich or Barcelona.

Chelsea are also poised to sign Hulk, from what I understand to most likely fill Drogba's boots. Add to that, Torres looks like he's starting to get back to his best and will probably be much more prolific in front of goal. They do need to look to replace Lampard though - Dempsey anyone?

Hazard probably made the right choice as he may have not got as much first team football at City. I never saw him going to United; he doesn't seem like an Alex Ferguson type player.

im just bitter..Chelski played smart and grinded out 2 games against world class teams..that isnt luck. I just think if we get a worldclass creative midfielder and LB we'll be challenging for the CL next year.

I wouldn't lose sleep over it. Losing the Premier League title may well turn out to be a good thing as the board will need to whip out the chequebook and spend. Fergie always has something up his sleeves. I can't see Man U having another quiet summer in the transfer market, especially as Chelsea are likely to be far more of a threat next season.

Argentine Nicolas Gaitan has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford. Argentine footballers seem to do great in the PL:

I dont think Chelsea will sign Hulk. Torres need to know that he is your man now so I dont think Hulk will be signing for Chelsea. Why would Chelsea want him anyway? He is to overated. Hazard is a great signing and will shine in the PL. That was a huge blow to Man Utd because they need to be signing players like that if they want to regain the PL. There is knowone out there that is better then this chap.

They also annoy Man Utd too. First with Tevez and then with Ageuro winning the league for City. Oh and dont forget Verón.

Nico Gaitan is the next big thing, mark my words! He would be a great signing for United. He is as talented as Hazard IMO.
