So the story out now is that utd are prepared to walk away if sporting don't lower their price. Why does it feel like every transfer is a saga for utd? It's so boring a bit like Brexit.

GD

1.) 18 Jan 2020 13:46:14
Absolute sham. Just pay the asking price or near enough. We are in no place to be haggling over this deal.


2.) 18 Jan 2020 14:06:14
It’s a saga because the media make it one. Both Sporting and Utd are well within their rights to have views on his value. My guess is that we are scarred by our recent failures in the market wasting millions on dross.


3.) 18 Jan 2020 14:29:24
He obviously wants to leave and utd are probably using this to get the price down, maybe they should ask him to put in transfer request? after all we are always screwed when it comes to selling players, I have no isuue with us trying to lower the price.


4.) 18 Jan 2020 14:44:33
This is a tactic we've used in previous windows. In the summer we signed Wan Bisaka and James fairly early on. Then we went onto Maguire. Leicester said 80 million and we said no. Dragged out for the whole summer and we eventually stump up the cash for him a few days before the window closed.

If we had of signed Maguire early in the window there would have been pressure to complete another signing or two. We delayed and delayed beacsue as long as we are "negotiating" we look like we're proactive. We sign Maguire late on and everyone is just relieved that we got it over the line.

Fast forward to this window. We've known we need recruitments in January. We've known the player is willing to come and we've know Sportings stance on the matter. Same again, if we sign him January 2nd, there is pressure to sign another few players in this window. But we will drag it out another week, stump up the cash Sporting want and then we will "run out of time" to complete any other signings.

Fans are happy because we have signed what looks like a very good player. Board are praised but in reality this should have been done earlier and maybe another addition or two added to give Ole a fighting chance at top 4.


5.) 18 Jan 2020 14:49:13
It's the line united are leaking to their media buddies that annoys me'united aren't willing to overpay' BS we overpay for pretty much everyone not only in fees but wages also. Be prepared for no Bruno but a 5 year deal for jesse on 250k a week.


6.) 18 Jan 2020 15:00:00
The most laughable thing is the list of excuses being doled out by the club, too expensive, don't want to affect future transfers, focused on the summer etc etc. Yet we all know come the summer there won't be a plan, negotiations won't have started, we will employ the same tactics and scattergun approach and end up short again. They really must think we are thick and will swallow whatever crap they serve up.


7.) 18 Jan 2020 15:24:21
Your slipping again Ni. 😂😂😂.


8.) 18 Jan 2020 15:39:06
Apologies Ken. 😂.


9.) 18 Jan 2020 15:51:14
I don't believe we will get this deal done. In fairness to the club though it seems that Sporting are being an absolute disaster and keep asking for more. You can guarantee he will be playing Tuesday.


10.) 18 Jan 2020 17:21:44
I just dnt understand why people would be happy with us paying 80 mil for a 50 mil footballer? Look at the stick Maguire gets on here, imagine we pay 80 and bruno doesn't hit the ground running? All the usual nonsense about overpaying would be out in full force.

Also the ed says sporting are doing nothing wrong, why are we doing it wrong? We have a valuation, they have a valuation 🤷‍♂️.


11.) 18 Jan 2020 18:49:10
But Deano, it's not that we should pay more than we want, it's that we should have known from the get go that we were too far away in valuation.

In the summer we couldn't agree to a fee. He then signs a new contract and we go back in January with the same derisory bid. It's just not good business. And also insulting Sporting by having add ons like "player winning balon d'or", "United winning the champions league".

If the valuation is that far apart, move on and try and sign someone else. But no, we'll drag this out the whole window and then either pay exactly what sporting want (cementing our image as a club that will simply pay up) or we will let it fade out and the team will continue to struggle without reinforcements.


12.) 18 Jan 2020 18:53:37
We are desperate for players, every club knows this, until we build a good squad and have depth and we’re in a position where we are not in desperate need for players, we will pay over the odds! When we have most players and not in great need of signing but an addition would help we will be in a better position to negotiate better prices. We get stung by everyone.


13.) 18 Jan 2020 19:35:04
Deano, why is he a 50 mil footballer? Who makes that determination. surely the selling club?

Couldn't care less what we pay for a player as long as he's good.


14.) 19 Jan 2020 12:57:24
If it’s that boring then there is a way to just not look at it? It’s only boring because you’re following it from start to finish and reading twitter and this site, turn your phone off, enjoy your life and have a look on 31st January if we signed anyone. You can’t do something you don’t have to do then moan that it’s boring.


15.) 19 Jan 2020 17:25:07
Its a saga because the media make it thay way - man utd are still the biggest show in town and sell the most papers.


 

 

17 Oct 2019 15:14:35
Rumour today is we are looking at signing toni kroos in January. I'd be quite happy with that, still a very good player with a lot of experience which the team is short of.

GD

1.) 17 Oct 2019 15:47:20
Kroos is a good player, however I'd take any rumour with a grain of salt. Seems to me that the club are putting out this info to try and appease the fanbase. In reality Ed won't sign anyone of any note. Same old BS when they don't have to backup the talk with action.


2.) 17 Oct 2019 16:26:05
I know he has a lot of experience and we definitely lack that but him and rakitic (another linked player) also have a lack of pace. Which is already a major problem in midfield would also want a mass wages to join something i really hope we steer clear of.


3.) 17 Oct 2019 16:39:18
Terrible signing. Lazy player.


4.) 17 Oct 2019 16:45:57
They seem to be getting in the excuses early with the PR they have been spewing the past few days. Mail had utd buying 5 new shiny old players in the summer. Woodward thinks we are all thick.


5.) 17 Oct 2019 22:55:04
5 seasons ago most definitely. now, no thanks.


6.) 17 Oct 2019 23:57:36
Agree mort.


7.) 18 Oct 2019 07:02:33
Got one of the worst midfields in the PL and people still turn there nose up at a player who would instantly improve it and would be a good addition for 2 or 3 years while we rebuild.

{Ed047's Note - especially if you got rid of that lazy over rated clown Pogba.


8.) 18 Oct 2019 08:37:09
What is it with pace and central midfield. It’s nonsense. The best midfielders dictate the pace and control the game. None of which we have. Kroos/ Rakitic are 100% improvement on anything we have.


9.) 18 Oct 2019 12:42:13
Nobody mentioned pace. Kroos is lazy though. Also he's the kind of signing that would struggle to make an instant impact.


10.) 18 Oct 2019 12:51:52
I think Kroos would be too slow for the premier league. A little bit like Fabrigas was when he played for Chelsea. I understand the argument that Kroos will improve the midfield but are we not sick and tired of the big name players being drafted in short term to try and fix a mess . They usually end in the player being on extortionate wages and declining rapidly. I cannot see how Kroos would be any different.


11.) 18 Oct 2019 13:01:15
Lads I don’t think we are in any position to turn down a player of the quality as Toni Kroos. The right midfield partners and he would flourish. I think he is capable of playing like pirlo did in his later career.


12.) 18 Oct 2019 14:13:36
Kroos is a very good player, and he is certainly better than what we have.

But that doesn't mean he would be a good signing. Di Maria and Falcao were better than what we had. Sanchez was better than what we had. Schweinsteiger was better than what we had.

Signing older players, who are moving from a top side and looking for a last big pay day haven't worked out well for us in the past.

Kroos is a great player, yet Madrid are struggling in La Liga with him as their key central midfielder. He has Modric and Casemiro alongside him BOTH probably better than what he would be playing with if he move to us.

IF he is struggling with better players in a league not as competitive as the EPL then how do you think he would cope if we signed him?

Rakitic has a bad reputation and a questionable attitude to say the least. Again a player better than what we have but probably not a good fit for our club.

Both I think would struggle in the whirly burly world that is midfield in the EPL. Both are also used to playing in a 3 man midfield rather than a 2 man double pivot. Which again would likely expose their lack of mobility and pace all the more.

Kroos makes Matic look like Kante in the mobility department. Fantastic passer of the ball, but you could probably draw a ten yard circle around him and count on one hand the number of times he leaves the circle in 90 minutes.


13.) 18 Oct 2019 16:01:11
Is that not exactly what you'd want though shappy? to play alongside pogba and having a deep midfield player with bags of energy, mctominay for now. Kroos's quality is unquestionable and pogba is better higher up the pitch where he can make those runs he makes. I'm not saying this will sort the midfield for years to come but it would I think at least help the forwards get chances. I agree with the point about players coming from teams such as Madrid and youd hope the desire was still there. If attainable I do think he would be a very good addition.


14.) 18 Oct 2019 17:06:40
Watched him for Germany against us a few weeks ago, and he was pretty anonymous. When you have opposition players harrying him, he struggled to make an impact. If he has time, his passing is second to none, but I doubt he'd have that luxury in the EPL.


15.) 18 Oct 2019 19:57:19
GD, as Stevie says above he is an excellent player until he is marked and harried out of a game. That doesn't happen as much in La Liga as it would in the EPL.

Veron was arguably one of the best midfielders in the world when he joined us. Yet he never managed to settle into life in midfield in the EPL. He also showed his class again when he left England and went back to Italy.

I would put Kroos in the same boat, great player, but ultimately one I don't think is suit to the league we play in.

Think of all the great midfielders you can think of to have played in the EPL.

Now how many of them lacked mobility?

You can get away with a lack of pace and even a lack of strength. But you will not get away with a lack of mobility in midfield in the EPL.


16.) 18 Oct 2019 20:48:45
Yeah the Premier league is completely different I suppose but I'd still love to see him in a utd shirt.

I remember when I was sure he was signing and he ended up at Madrid and I was gutted because he was so good and him and modric for 3 years were so so good in that midfield.


17.) 19 Oct 2019 08:01:07
GD, I think that's the point. How much of his performances at Real Madrid have been because he has Modric playing alongside him.

For me Modric is the player we missed out on.

And you can see at Real Madrid now. Kroos's decline is mimicking that of Modric's when he is 3-4 years younger than Modric and should now be the player stepping up as Modric declines.

Di marzio saying the Maguire deal now in the final stages.

GD

1.) 29 Jul 2019 21:29:13
When Di Marzio speaks we should listen very reliable journalist about time get a midfielder in next then were ready to roll.


2.) 30 Jul 2019 07:39:12
Di Marzio is normally on the money.


 

 

29 Sep 2018 15:23:32
The funny thing is this was all predicted about mourinhos 3rd season from pretty much everyone. He's lost his players his team selection today was baffling the football is poor. It's exactly like Chelsea 3 years ago. Even the most hopeful of us can't expect him to turn it around it's a shame but we need to say enough is enough before the season is a write off.

I doubt the decision makers will do this until it gets worse. All the club is concerned about is how much money it generates off the pitch it's losing touch with supporters, personally I'm not even angry anymore as I have started to expect very little from us.

All we can hope for is a plan going forward but I doubt we have one.

GD

1.) 29 Sep 2018 17:27:39
Whoever decided to give him a new contract last season knowing his previous history, deserves to be shot.


2.) 29 Sep 2018 19:39:57
Most definitely absolute criminal I see a lot of the fans phone in shows and their all saying the board won't sack him well there's easy way to get rid of him the fans should be protesting with their feet don't turn up to the next game don't go I know it's prob crazy to say it but if it's only way to get rid of mourinho then they must do it. Guarantee once the board sees an empty old Trafford they will soon take action.
This hasbeen thinks he has the board over a barrel because of the payout
they will need to pay him .
He actually said it to the press a couple weeks ago .
I'm absolutely disgusted.


3.) 29 Sep 2018 21:16:27
It's about time the players who are selected took some of the heat too. They are paid megabucks to perform. Ultimately they should be playing for the fans for the shirt and for their own personal pride.


4.) 29 Sep 2018 22:38:05
Hendon, absolutely spot on mate. They are stealing a living and hiding behind the manager's obvious shortcomings. Jose's position now now untenable, and the axe will surely fall. But nobody will convince me that these players are free of any blame. Some people may be gullible enough to believe that some of these imposters of footballers are fighting for what's best for the team.
I say they need to show that they are warriors on the pitch before they try to be warriors off it. The whole lots stinks from top to bottom.


5.) 30 Sep 2018 01:30:24
Agree more than when my mrs suggests a curry betty.


6.) 30 Sep 2018 07:51:23
We have wasted more money over the years for average players, Surely 12 million to get rid of Jose is a snip .
Totally shockling football, looks like the club is ready to implode.


7.) 01 Oct 2018 12:17:59
If Jose goes before Pogba we are screwed. It reinforces the message, akin to Chelsea under AVB, that no manager will last long enough to overhaul the squad, and the players can expect plenty of power and a fat wallet if they play/ sign for United.


 

 

03 Mar 2016 20:23:46
Hi, does anyone know if the reports linking Andrea Berta as director of football to us are true? And if so is it a step in the right direction?

GD

1.) 27 Feb 2016 16:25:12
All I know is what I've read. SAF tried to sign him as a 17 year old but failed. He plays off the right but is left footed like Robben. So he would be a right sided option.


2.) 27 Feb 2016 22:12:22
Berardi is better, younger and has a better goal and assist return by miles in the last 3.5 seasons. If you want a right winger from Italy you buy Berardi.


3.) 29 Feb 2016 10:24:51
I was always under the impression that Berardi was the better of the two, although they are both different types of players. From what I've seen Berardi is certainly more like a striker who plays wide to find space and exploit it similar to how players like Henry, Neymar, Messi and our own Martial use that space to get the run on the opposition.
Where as Bernardeschi is more like a a traditional winger or No.10, more creative for his team mates rather than looking to get the goals himself. Admittedly I've only seen him in the 1-1 draw with Spurs and a game earlier in the season against Sampdoria which ended 2-0 to Fiorentina. Both times he was lively and energetic and caused his marker plenty of problems.

I think it depends on what you want from a wide player. I feel that with the options we have of Martial or Memphis on the left then we will be better off looking for a creative player for the right rather than someone looking for goal themselves. Someone in the front three should be looking to pass more often than shoot. lol.

But like I said I don't know enough about Bernardeschi to know whether he would be a success in England.


4.) 29 Feb 2016 12:23:37
Hi Shappy,

Berardi has assisted far more than Bernardeshi over the last 3.5 years. They have 5 goals each and 3 assists each this season but Berardi has played 10 fewer games. Defensively they have very similar stats Bernardeshi has better passing stats but this could be explained by the fact he plays closer to the midfield. Bernardeshi's performances drop off when he plays further forward.

Goals win games if you play with 4-3-3 or a slight variation of Berardi is your man. Memphis- Martial - Berardi would offer a very fluid and skilful front 3. Plus with the emergence of Rashford you could move them all around (Berardi like Martial can play across the front 3 positions) .

Hopefully Memphis comes good and gets to the level he was performing at at PSV and we buy a wide forward for the right.


5.) 29 Feb 2016 12:37:23
If I had the choice Beradi would be my first choice aswell!

The guy has been impressing for months on end now and I think now it's time for him to take a step up and imply himself in a new team ie Manchester United?


6.) 01 Mar 2016 14:51:06
Some sites are now linking us with Beradi?

I hope there is some truth in these rumours!

Awesome signing if we can pull this one off!

But, A solid keeper and defence needs to be primary targets!

Mustafi, Laporte and Butland ALL linked too?


7.) 01 Mar 2016 22:55:14
Berardi will end up at a decent Italian team ie one of the Milan Clubs, Italian players don't usually do well in England tbh

Goalkeeper situation if De Gea goes, we will enter the market, if he stays, we won't

I think a CB is needed, Jones a liability and at best our 3rd choice, Mustafi is decent, Laporte is wanted by City, I think United will look at Stones seriously, only issue is we need someone bit more "ready" and commanding, my first choice is Hummels but think he could be off to Spain before England

Looking at the squad at the moment, I have listed 3 positions we need addressing

Centre Back, Centre Midfield and a Right Wing

Centre Back we discussed, the CM could be Renato Sanches I reckon, think he fit, Right Wing is interesting, Jesse Lingard is doing a decent job but reckon we need competition their, pipeline dream is Gareth Bale, logically we could be looking at Mahrez, Guedes etc.

Players to be sold

Bastian Schweinstger - No longer the player he was, basically taking up our wage budget, I would move him on

Marouane Felliani - No against him but isn't the type of player we like

Antonio Valencia - Just a bit part player.


8.) 02 Mar 2016 09:03:30
Shane,

Zola was terrible eh?


9.) 02 Mar 2016 10:09:10
Largely agree Shane. I too think Shane will be closely looked at. i'd like another young eh get, Bernardeshi is popular at the moment and I like the fact that he is very creative and cuts inside like Robben. Saúl I think might've the midfield target, rumoured to have rejected a contract too.

I also think that we need another striker despite the emergence of Rashford. Someone young like Morata or Icardi who can be rotated I and out the side. Last point, I'd love to see Memphis tried on the right also, think he could do well.


10.) 02 Mar 2016 10:36:32
I can't see Saul leaving Atletico, he will get his contract he is after

Memphis is best at cutting in, Ronaldo like, he could do a decent job on the right but is far more effective on the left

I'm not sure about the striker situation tbh with Rashford emerging, Martial is seen as the future no 9 for us.

Seen a headline earlier saying "Wolves held by United" made me reflect on just how far we have fallen wasn't to long ago that the draw for wolves would be the talk of the town, now it has become such a normal occurrence for teams it's us managing to hold them to a draw.

GD

1.) 05 Jan 2020 23:53:18
Leicester and wolves probably have better squads than us Leicester more so.

Then there's about 6 teams that's not very far from us.

We've calling very far.

We will not win league in next 10 year if we keep up current ethics.


2.) 06 Jan 2020 11:34:06
No disputing that the club is in a mess right now, but I wouldn't pay much attention to the media simply because it's filled with past players from other clubs who now revel in United being lost in the wilderness because United under Fergie prevented them from winning anything meaningful in their careers. As for the papers it's just click bait. A poor United side generates just as much traffic as a great United side. Just have to accept the reality and hope the club changes for the better soon.


3.) 06 Jan 2020 11:51:27
Thought the exact same myself when I read that, just goes to show how far we have fallen in only 6 years. Cannot wait for Glazer's to sell, hopefully to someone who actually wants to run a football club not just a business to make money. Maybe then we will get a DOF in and a manager that knows what they are doing. Sorry Olè, I love you as a player, but think you are out of your depth in this role. But until the club is fixed from the top, it doesn't matter how many managers we have or who thst manager even is, they are likely to fail because we are rotten from the core right now.


4.) 06 Jan 2020 12:18:33
Midfield 3 for Leicester better than any 3 we can put out.

Midfield 3 for Wolves better than any 3 we can put out.

That's where we're at after spending a small fortune on players in the last five or six years .


 

 

19 Oct 2019 16:03:12
At this precise moment we are sat In 15th 1 point above the bottom 3 8 games in to the season 😱.

GD

1.) 19 Oct 2019 17:04:20
That's quite likely to get worse before the weekend is out.


 

 

18 Oct 2019 21:01:04
All the pundits/ media have seemed to write us off completely for Sunday. Which is hard to disagree with but some have gone as far as to say the best 11 from a mix of both teams is all liverpool. You'd hope that's the kick up the ass the players need and they'd want come out of the match with there heads held high.

GD

1.) 18 Oct 2019 23:46:52
It's gone beyond a kick up the ass,
We don't have a leader on the pitch, or the hole dressing room,
We will probably play 2 dm, matic and mctominay, and Liverpool will play around them, and Where's our goals coming from.


2.) 19 Oct 2019 08:53:25
Haven’t you read, Ole has a plan

Being serious the players should be up for this and it should be like one of those FA cup upsets where the underdogs do better than expected. I am going for a 1 all draw.


3.) 19 Oct 2019 09:55:31
We will approach the game tactically in the same way that a Norwich, Newcastle etc would. That's where we are atm 😥.


4.) 19 Oct 2019 11:29:36
Sadly 😥 norn-Iron that is where we are.


5.) 19 Oct 2019 12:40:23
I think Ole’s plan is fairly likely to be sit back, hit them on the break. Liverpool use their full backs forward so Rashford and James will likely be employed to run into those spaces. Get first goal, hold on, hit on break win two nil. Panic if Liverpool score first, stand at side of pitch waving circles looking concerned. Bring Greenwood on after 88 mins to play right wing. Wave further circles, look busy.


6.) 19 Oct 2019 13:04:18
Well I think if we get a drumming ole we be gone.

And like previous managers the players would have thrown him under the bus.

As someone put above we have 0 leaders. We have 0 creativity and we don't have anyone who can score goals


We will be lucky to score 1 goal.


The only positive for this team is that we have a decent defence when they are all fit.


7.) 19 Oct 2019 15:11:16
Bolger, and we have a manager and coaches with 0 ideas. So it's not all the players fault. Manager has stuck with 4231 for the past 6 matches, and we can clearly see that it is not working. But he does not want to change.
Every time I hear Solskjaer, he's going on about attacking teams, but we never see any of it. He's talking the talk, but the walk is nowhere to be seen.


8.) 19 Oct 2019 17:34:29
Players have to give there all AAA I've not seen that all season.

But its not the first time this has been mentioned and what do we keep doing?

Sacking the manager.


But I do agree there is a lot of walking.


9.) 20 Oct 2019 00:20:08
Manager and coaches have to give clear instructions and use players to their best abilities. I think our tactics are non existent, players get confused, lose confidence and fight.
Can't see that changing anytime soon.


 

 

12 May 2019 19:59:39
One of the most frustrating things about the last 2 games is if we had of won them we would be in the top 4 really bad end to the season.

At least its blatantly obvious to everyone involved with the club that serious changes are required don't think I've ever felt so low as a supporter of the club but being 32 I have been spoilt as fergie was appointed a month before I was born.

We'll be back at the top again but realistically at least a few years off that.

GD

1.) 12 May 2019 21:56:34
Personally its good we missed out on the champions league. It would've papered over the cracks and led to less being done.


2.) 12 May 2019 22:02:07
GD, we would have missed out on goal difference.

But still, the atmosphere round here might be a little better.


3.) 13 May 2019 06:16:50
Yeah realised after I sent. Was thinking we had lost at huddersfield to.


4.) 13 May 2019 06:23:37
I don't know about that Wazza, the last time we missed out on something due to goal difference the site was pretty disappointed.


 

 

11 May 2019 17:48:40
I liked Herrera always gave his all could of been captain material due to the distinct lack of leaders as I think he'd be a squad player at any of the top 4 clubs this season. But a farewell video? Seriously? Dressing it up like he's the 2nd coming of Cantona good grief what a load of crap.

Oh come off it! I thought things like that were reserved for players who had achieved legendary status or pretty damn near it. Celebrating mediocrity ain't going to get us anywhere.
Ask yourself why he was overlooked? Like I said I liked him couldn't fault his effort and desire but he didn't even have 10 Brilliant matches in any one season for us. Then there's you with your little love heart like it's the end of some great legacy been left.

I’m with good on this one Wazza. I love Herrera but the video is OTT. He’s done OK, I’m sad to see him go but that video? Players come and go, he’s been a solid player, probably underrated due to all the dirty work he does but the video made me cringe.


4.) 11 May 2019 21:14:15
Lolll stop hating. He gave more to the club then anyone in the club for the last 5 years. He never disrespected anyone, never use to cry when not in the playing 11 and qas much better then some of you thunk he is.

The only. other player that deserv3s more respect in the last 5 yeqrs is DeGea and possibly Mata because he has shown enourmous respect for the club. He probably loves the club and if it wasnt for Utd screwing him around for last 2 years he wouldve signed an extention.

Nice guy. Jack of all trades, master of none. The most interesting thing about Herrara's Man Utd story was the strange tale of the blokes who turned up in Bilbao the year before he eventually signed, apparently posing as Man Utd representatives. Either they were trying to run a scam or they actually worked for Woodward and did such a bad job they were eventually disowned. Whatevr the case, he has been a solid, hard-working pro at the club, nothing more. sadly that makes him exceptional in recent years.

There's no hating like I said I like him and respect the passion and enthusiasm he's played with. But you'd want a player lifting you off your seat year on year to be getting that level of respect.

If he wants to leave then that's up to him thanks for at least trying and bye. Surprised the video doesn't cut to Sanchez playing the piano as Herrera walks away sadly just so we feel like we've got some use out of our no 7.
Were was John o sheas video?

O'Shea's video was mistakenly put in the wrong box and returned to blockbuster but the club inside show the jungle book every year at the Christmas party.

The man is saying thankyou! Thank you and good luck Mr Herrera!


9.) 12 May 2019 10:56:07
Have to agree with good on this. Solid enough pro gave his all and probably should of been made captain through lack of candidates but not good enough to compete for the top honours in the 1st eleven. We need better and hopefully his replacement will be, if not as a team we’ll only achieve the mediocrity of the last 5/ 6years.


10.) 12 May 2019 13:10:38
Richard the actually full quite is " jack of all trades, master of none but better than a master of one". Tend to agree with that, although Herrera wasnt really jack of all trades, many things always lacked from his game.
Good player regardless, will be missed.

He's had a really good start for them.

Yeah the Premier league is completely different I suppose but I'd still love to see him in a utd shirt.

I remember when I was sure he was signing and he ended up at Madrid and I was gutted because he was so good and him and modric for 3 years were so so good in that midfield.

Is that not exactly what you'd want though shappy? to play alongside pogba and having a deep midfield player with bags of energy, mctominay for now. Kroos's quality is unquestionable and pogba is better higher up the pitch where he can make those runs he makes. I'm not saying this will sort the midfield for years to come but it would I think at least help the forwards get chances. I agree with the point about players coming from teams such as Madrid and youd hope the desire was still there. If attainable I do think he would be a very good addition.

Got one of the worst midfields in the PL and people still turn there nose up at a player who would instantly improve it and would be a good addition for 2 or 3 years while we rebuild.

GD

{Ed047's Note - especially if you got rid of that lazy over rated clown Pogba.

Obviously the title race isn't getting enough clicks so put a non story concocted by a pundit about man utd on to get some interest.

He does say some strange things though. I think it's a really daft thing to say as we're city's biggest rival and pep trys to win everything. It's a comment that doesn't even need making, all it highlights is how far we are behind city's strongest 11 when they play like they did the first half. This is not me bashing ole either I like how he's brought William's and Greenwood in and rashford and martial seem to have improved but his in game management at times is terrible and has cost us points this season. Now I just can't make my mind up whether we have improved or gone backwards.

Its impossible to say Greenwood has more potential but I think with his emergence we could definitely prioritise other areas and Dortmund is a good move for him to prove himself I'd imagine Sancho will be leaving. It would be great to see us bring in a top quality cm if at all possible in January.

A very inexperienced recruitment team I'd say ed.

I read somewhere that our scouting/ recruitment system was completely tailored to Sir Alex and his genius before he left.

Sir Alex and a few trusted personel would identify a player and he obviously had the power and reputation to phone a senior figure at a players club and it was more or less a foregone conclusion he'd get the player So therefore there wasnt a great need for a powerful recruitment approach.

it was never taken into to much consideration for David Moyes.
Apparently the scouting department weren't even offering suggestions to him maybe one of the reasons he only got to sign fellaini and Mata.


Only recently are we attempting to fix the issue properly and the recruitment department has had to be stripped down and rebuilt again so its taking time.

GD

{Ed047's Note - whose picked the 30 odd players you’ve signed since he left?

Dsg that is exactly my thoughts I can't believe they haven't been properly tested as a pair together. I think to get the best out of this current squad 3412 or 343 would be the best option going forward.
