So I don't really post here too often but I do lurk. And now I feel like I have some thoughts I want to share.

I think a lot of fans are getting to wound up about the transfers (or perceived lack )

I think we are going about business the right way now. We have brought in exciting young players to add to the squad, upgraded our defence.

We aren't being idiots with wages and paying silly money, as money ball hasn't worked for us in the past.

I think the Dybala thing, because he wanted a ton of money to play for us he's been told thanks but no thanks mate.

Maybe Ole has seen enough in Chong, Gomez and Greenwood to know that whist they might not be exactly ready now, its an idiotic move to spend 75 million on a player who in 18 months will be in the way of Greenwood whos going to a be a beast by all accounts.

As for Bruno, its strage that no one ( given his stats) hasn't made an effort to sign him. i wonder why .?

Any way just some thoughts, i think we are headding in the right directin and will take another year and 2 windows, but i like the new lack of scatter gun approach

Thanks for reading.

Good post Jedi.

We've bought in 3 players - one we overpaid for from the Championship, 2 we overpaid for in the Premier League. Forgive me for not patting the people in charge on the back. We had a terrible season and lost Herrera, likely to lose Lukaku and probably Pogba too. Things are a little bleak at the moment.

Bleak? Its football for gods sake. Bleak is living on universal credit with 3 kids and deciding what bill you pay out of the six on the table. Can we have perspective.

Look at the fees other clubs have been paying i wouldn't say we've overpaid at all.

No RedRosie, you need to see through your rosie tinted glasses :D :D.

Good post,

Whilst its admirable to have faith in our youngsters, we have to be cautious and not expect too much too soon.

A good pre season is what was needed. Our distinct lack of fitness last season was plain to see.

AWB, Maguire ( maybe I've been unfair on him) will make our defence stronger.

James, again a player with a lot of potential. He needs time.

Of course Lukaku and Pogba want to leave. We've played hardball over those two players. Lukaku seemingly is desperate to leave.

Of course we are linked with Llorente now. A last minute bid for Ericsson etc.

At least by the end of today we won't be buying anyone until next year.

So we have signing 2 defenders is now considered having great window.

We lost fellaini is jan, hererra is summer, pogba might very well leave by the end of aug, we are getting no one in but we are going in the right direction folks, i mean guardiola and klopp have nightmares of a midfield of the legendary duo of fred and matic and poor mctominay who is going to have to cover for those two.

The only player in the team who has shown that he can score 20+ goals in a season is being sold and replaced with no one, doesn't get more right direction than that does it, speaking of right, we have no right wingers and we have filled that hole by signing another of our umpteen left wingers, because when you need someone on the right the best choice is get a left winger, because that worked out really went the 500k tu

And ofcourse the utd way of giving youngsters a chance, because they will win it for us as they did when Hansen spouted that nonsense, its just that people seem to forget something, that team wasn't just filled with kids, it had Cantona, Irwin, Schmeichal and Keane all of whom were world class or nearly worldclass players. This team has 2 in DDG and Pogba, both of whom want to leave and the rest is crap. Kids can't do much unless the rest of team is good enough, however talented they maybe.

If we get no more signings, Ole will be sacked by feb at best, that chinless freak is already trying to cover his @$$ by leaking bs transfer news trying to show that he tried to sign players. And the merry go round will begin again next season where we still will not appoint a Sporting Director or Director of football, because we are going the right way folks.

chill csm.

Jeez CSM. Never thought i would be agreeing to one of your posts given our differences over Jose but my word. That is some thought. I am totally with you on this. Welcome to the so called Toxic gang.

Mort I figured you'd be able to tell I'm talking purely from a football perspective. I'm able to separate football from the rest of my life, are you? We've certainly overpaid for all 3 of our targets so far I don't think that is even up for debate. Our defence has improved but our midfield as gotten weaker and we are losing a lot of goals up front too. I love this club but I suspect things are going to get worse before they get better.

07 Aug 2019 12:43:07

Next you will be singing you want to be in my gang my gang.

There is a day to go so we shall see what happens

I expect if there is a shortfall in what we needed then the message will be that we are “building for the long term in line with the clubs DNA, with a manager who will work with the youth, who is fully supportive of the direction, will not overpay, whatever this years No value argument is” etc. Yes we have spent some money but can anyone see us succeed with that midfield, even worse if Pogba leaves or where goals will come from if Lukaku goes?

They can fool the fans with emotional claptrap at this time of year but if struggling in the season, again, there has to come a point where real change must happen at the club.

07 Aug 2019 14:42:47
Ok bleak in football terms then is being Bolton and going to your first league game with only 3 senior pros.

Where have we overpaid? 59 million is the going rate for full backs these days. Championship players are moving for 20 million these days. Cf Maupey. Granted we paid a bit much for Maguire but that's the market. Pay it or go elsewhere.

07 Aug 2019 15:35:36
CSM. I think a little low level therapy an short term Valium might help you regain a sense of proportion.
We are at the beginning of a process of being true to our historic DNA.

07 Aug 2019 16:21:06
DW will this history be akin to what fergie and busby created or the one in between, because this has that inbetween feel to it.

07 Aug 2019 16:31:08
We need to be wary. In order to recreate historic DNA, we better not become history like many other big clubs like Leeds etc.

07 Aug 2019 17:40:53
I have total faith in that the academy players will step up to the challenge next year.
We have spent the last 6 years trying to buy talent, it hasn't been successful, our homegrown players are ready, let's give them a chance and see what they can do.
