Not been on here for years due to the intense psychological damage the demise of our beloved club has caused me and I'm sure many of your good selves.

With the winter transfer window only a few sleeps past Christmas away. Here's my 2 cents of who I'd like with who would (if the press could actually be believed) could be available.

Mario Mandzukic - whilst going against the club's "new transfer policy" I've always been a fan of his and I think with his attitude and natural fitness levels could for 18 months say be a very good option. Plus Juventus seem to be willing to do business mid season.

How we started the season as short as we did was evident it seemed to everyone except old Eddy. We have to bring in a midfielder. Were not going to get our main targets in the winter were all aware of that but I think we could do worse than Eric Dier. Premiership proven, home grown, still young and I believe he's just lost his way a bit at spurs in a position that is flooded there. Maybe a change of scene may help him like it did Trippier. In any event he can still tackle, pass and read a game better than Fred.

Come summer I'd like us to hit the free transfers. Our squad is week and there is only so much we could spend but two players available on a free which would provide some much needed depth. At left back when Shaw's not been fit it's been hard. Raphael Gerreira is available on a free and I believe could fill that roll also being able to play in midfield. The other free player I'd go for is Ryan Fraser. Would be a fantastic impact player able to play in multiple positions and for me more consistent than say Lingard. Non freebies would be James Maddison I think he's a great lad and he's only going to keep getting better. Erling Haland because let's face it he's class. If it were down to me I'd even try and sign him up for the summer NOW loaning him back to Salzburg until the end of season. My last definite choice would be Hee-chan Hwang. I'd say for his age he's as good as Son at spurs at the same age. Not to mention sending Van Dijk the wrong way like he did only makes me like him more. He's got that fantastic full throttle way of playing those south Korean players have and ability aside would probably good sense commercially as well. Another Centre midfielder in and I think we'd be in a much better position going into next season than we did this.

Now I know that there is no Saul and other huge names on there but I think we have to be realistic in looking at the position we're in now to the position we were once in. We need to sell Pogba, Sanchez, Lingard, Bailey, Matic, Rojo, Young, Smalling, Fosu-Mensah and possibly Martial. They either haven't worked out for us or are in Pogbas case at least have a terrible attitude. Sorry that was so long winded I live in a house with four females so I've been bottling it up for a while. Thanks for reading and have a good day.

Not trying to be funny mate but if the fortunes of a football club are causing you “intense psychological damage” you probably need to re-evaluate your priorities.

Okay so I may have slightly embellished the true effect it's had on me.

Good post BB. And a refreshing change to read, so thanks.

Not sure Haaland will come to MUFC, could you imagine his dad's reaction!

26 Oct 2019 09:37:59
Dodgy, I could just imagine the conversation.

Haaland Jr "Dad, I'm keen to join Manchester United"

Haaland Sr "KEANE! Over my f**ked knee are you joining United"

Yeah I guess the whole leeds thing could be problematic. However, it was okay for Alan Smith. He even played for Leeds and as soon as they got relegated jumped in his car and drove over the penines. 😅.

{Ed001's Note - only because Man Utd were the only team willing to pay full price and he gave up his signing bonus and cut of the transfer fee he was due to give extra to Leeds as they were in financial difficulties.}

Eric Dier isn't good enough. We need to sign a top midfielder. If Spurs want rid of him, then he's not good enough for UTD.

Ryan Fraser could be useful. I agree he would be better than all I can do is Instagram Lingard. If OGS plays and keeps this new formation, where would he fit?
