In 2011 against basel 3 out of 4 of the back 4 started that was the same year we got knocked out in the group stages, have we moved on, no, but we did a lot of panic buying since then,
Nothing against ole but I said from day 1 he should never have got the job then and there.
Whoever is making these decisions needs sacking or it will get worse.

I wholeheartedly agree Leahy12.
Consider why Young and Valencia were converted to RB/ LB.
Saves money.
Jones and Smalling have never been great defenders. Rojo is very poor.
Bailly is injury prone and has lost his confidence.
Shaw positional awareness is very poor.

Dalot and Lindelof look good. (Lindelof has come on leaps and bounds) .

Top teams are build one solid defence. a lot of clubs are going to be rebuilding this summer. That makes transfer more difficult.

Unfortunately I think we will continue to decline.

Woodward for a guy that is all about money commercially anyway signs Sanchez on a ridiculously long contract and monster wages. Its about time the Glazers appointed someone to run the football side of the club.

Oh well nothing I didn’t expect. This club has been rotten from the top to bottom for far too long now but unfortunately nothing will change until the Glazers are gone. Dreadful signings coupled with paying astronomical wages to bang average players. We need players who want to die for the shirt and know what it means to play for this special football club.

{Ed002's Note - It has nothing to do wityh the owners.}

Mad Hatter I don’t know how you or anyone can say it’s to save money. We’ve spent obscene amounts.

If you’re looking for someone to blame, point your finger towards EW and poor recruitment.

We’ve spent a lot and spent it badly.

Woodward won't be sacked. But he has to become more wise to spending and wages. The fact that he gave the likes of shaw and martial mass wage increases when they were on good money anyway. The reports of rashford being offered 250-300k is quite frankly laughable. We need to be more wise and anyone that wants out should be shown the door. I just hope we steer clear of rakitic, kroos, bale and costa more big name mistakes. We need to build a team for the future. In the short term we need to become a regular in the champions league places before any runs at the title.

Sorry Ed totally disagree there the owners who employ the staff ie Ed wooden top. The buck stops with them.

{Ed002's Note - The owners do not employ the staff - they have representation on the board that makes the decisions. It seems to be a theme that the MU supports simply don't understand the structure of the club and sure as hell don't understand how the club works.}

Thank you Ed, I have been saying this for the past two weeks, the owners have put put people and teams at various levels and sections to run the club, if we want to lash out at anyone then let us hound them and let the owners be. Similar analogy is when the street light outside my house is not working and I start blaming the prime minister or the president of the country.

{Ed002's Note - President May has no interest in your street lamp.}

Converting Young and Valencia into defenders is a money saving tactic.
Why else would the manager do that.

17 Apr 2019 16:08:38
MH. You’re totally wide of the mark.

We spent how much on Bailly? He can’t get a game ahead of Smalling and Jones. Maybe that money should’ve been spent on a good quality RB or RW.

Who else. Miki, Sanchez, even Pogba?

Fred and Lindelof have shown a bit of promise but for the money spent we need players who fit right in.

Lukaku at a very high fee can’t nail down a place.

All bad investments.

Naturally if you’re trying to buy success like we have for the past 5 years a line has to be drawn somewhere. You can’t buy a new team every summer.

Valencia and Young are playing full back, like Jones and Smalling are still playing CB, because we’ve spent our budget elsewhere and badly.

Maybe money should be saved on the salaries of those employed to advise and recruit.
