Ed i know pogba has been spoken about a lot before but seems like something could be happening with Barcelona, if we can find a replacement before the window closes. Do you see us signing a player then selling pogba after the English deadline? seen a couple of reports linking us with savic. i understand if there is nothing new any information is appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - The situation remains as I have explained.}

Almost certain we won’t sign anyone now. If we sold Pogba after the deadline too, then goodness, we’d be even more screwed than we already are. Awful transfer window.

ed has said there is plenty of time left, both ed 001 and 002 seem confident we will sign someone I've no reason to doubt them. i'm hopeful on alderweireld still.

The club has been backed into a corner. We have a player who we have tried to sell all summer, a player who doesn't want to be at our club anymore.

Yet no one has bid until now, so we are left with 36 hours before the transfer window closes. And we are to sort out a massive deal for a player leaving the club while also finding a replacement. We have to do this while everyone side outside of EPL has no time pressure as they still have weeks to go before their deadline.

Combine this with another 2-3 players who are unhappy and want to leave, plus the need to sign at least a couple more without replacing any potential exits leaves us with a mountain to climb or face being left in a bit of a mess.

Now for once I do feel a little sympathy for Jose, he clearly wanted more done and soon so the players could bed in.
However, the fact both Pogba and Martial two of our few potential world class players wants to leave are in a large part down to him and his handling of them.

So he certainly hasn't helped himself. I don't know what goes on behind closed doors, but publicly he has been picking fights with everyone, including players like Valencia who he has recently made captain. This surely can't be helping to create a good working environment.

Currently we have 3-5 players who want to leave the club, rats leaving a sinking ship comes to mind.

This pre-season has been very similar to the one before Jose's Chelsea meltdown.

Preseason has felt aimless like a boat without a rudder just drifting, at the mercy of the tides.

A captain who cared about the ship would be doing all he can to fix the rudder and give the boat a sense of direction. However, Jose just seems intent on smashing up the life rafts and blaming everyone else.

This season will end in heartbreak for many United fans. When it does it is vital that we don't start in fighting and blaming either the "Jose in" or the "Jose out" fans and we get behind the new manager. The club needs a man in our clubs own image. Someone who knows what it is to represent our club, someone who knows what it mean to our fans and who knows what is expected of them. First comes youth and offensive football, then comes winning titles. You build from the bottom not the top.

who would you move for shappy, manager wise?

We've been infighting all last season and over the summer. I don't see how this season will be any different. It'll be worse. Least till Wenger is appointed. After that who knows.

Doesn't seem like there will be nearly enough time to sell Pogba and sign an adequate replacement before the window closes. We will just have to accept one of our star players doesn't want to be there this year.

All we seem concerned about now . Or should I say all Ed Peckerwood is bothered about is how many different sponsors we can sew onto our shirts.
Terrible transfer window . Nothing to come again this year . Apart from a new manager maybe.
Signs are ominous with Jose's rant's and negative attitude.
But if jose does go . Then surely Woodward should throw himself on his sword also.
Never mind the Jose out campaign. We should have a bring back David Gill campaign. Here's to a long hard season.

After tomorrows deadline we still have 3 weeks of wondering if any of pogba, martial + others will be sold; The club doesn't have to sell players on so we haven't been held to ransom at this time and although we ain't moved that far forward we haven't gone back from last season as we have replaced carrick with Fred. It isn't ideal but fingers crossed there is something in the pipeline which the eds have indicated there could be.

I’d love Wenger. We’d at least play some awesome football with this squad!

Shappy

The Captain of any ship would only take the boat in the direction set by the owners of the ship. We should look above the manager and judge what direction the ship is being directed in. Looks like a trip round the Baltic rather than a luxury Caribbean cruise.
