Think it will be a bad signing. he's good, but not great.

21 Jul 2019 20:03:32
Mad hatter ask your self this

Would he instantly walk into the team?

Yes.

21 Jul 2019 20:02:01
So if he’s good, how will it be a bad signing?

21 Jul 2019 20:08:45
Hatter he gets some bad press because his name isn't very exotic mate. I honestly believe he is exactly what we need. We looked very suspect from set pieces and crosses last year, that has carried over into preseason and Maguire would go a long way to solving that issue. He will prove people wrong if we get the signing sealed. It's widely said that Pep is the best thing since sliced bread and he obviously see's something in him too, do all the critics no more than Ole or Pep? I'd suggest not.

I’m bored of reading week in week out people saying “his name isn’t exotic enough”. Absolute bollocks, myself and I’m sure other posters don’t think he’s great because of his ability, nothing to do with this fancy name crap people keep throwing out there.

Didn't pep also want Sanchez and Fred? Look how that turned out.

22 Jul 2019 06:04:31
We never know darv.
Sanchez and Fred could have been a hit at City.
Sometimes things don't work out for players at certain clubs.

Stand- you and a few others on this site may be the exceptions and genuinely believe he isn't good enough, however we do live in a world where foreign players are deemed better than homegrown, it's the same with managers. On to his ability, to insinuate he isn't good enough is "absolute bollocks" as you so eloquently put it. He would be the best CB at the club, he is one of the best CB's in the league and will only improve. He improves our aerial threat in the opposition box and makes us much less shakey at set pieces. The only thing he lacks is pace but even then he covers ground quickly at the top end because his strides are so long, I would argue he only lacks acceleration and not top end pace.

Darv- sometimes signings just don't work. My point was I believe Pep and Ole know more about football than us and that includes judging player ability. If they want a player, that's good enough for me. I couldn't care less if we pay 80 or 180 million personally, people get too caught up in fees and money.

Fred needs another season and a decent run in the team


Give him a chance.

22 Jul 2019 09:59:57
Agree with that bolger, there is a player in there.

22 Jul 2019 10:22:46
I am more excited about the fact we have a proper right back now. A natural right back that can head the ball, tackle, lots of pace to get up and down the line. He's young, hungry and going off the three games he's been involved in looks a bloody steal at 50 million quid. Aaron Wan-Bissaka will be a brilliant signing for us. Great bit is business by United.

22 Jul 2019 14:16:36
I think Maguire will be an excellent signing. I am not saying there are not alternatives but for me he is a round peg in a round hole for us when you list out what we need from CB to partner Lindelof.
Alongside AWB the backline has massively improved defensively and this will give OGS hopefully more confidence to play a HM that is not Matic to speed our play up.
I think whilst we are wanting more the signings so far and who we are looking at are at least filling need and with a longer term vision in mind.

22 Jul 2019 16:56:20
To say he's one of the best cbs in the league is pushing it. Be interesting if he doesn't sign how many people will be back tracking on comments like. This if he signs back him if he doesn't i won't lose any sleep.

23 Jul 2019 02:37:25
W16. Matip and loveren at Liverpool, stones at city, luiz at chelsea, sanchez at spurs, anyone at arsenal. All play most weeks for those clubs.
Maguire is a better cb than all of them. He would get into any of those sides.
He will be our best cb instantly.
Is there better cbs in world football. Yes. Are many available or epl proven. No.
I think he and awb will become cult hero's and firm fan favourites because they are trier's. Maguire is very comfortable on the ball and if you can show me 5 goals in the last 3 seasons where he has been at fault directly for conceding goals due to his lack of pace i'd be surprised his stats say he has not been.
Not perfect but more perfect than most imo.
If we concede 12 goals less this season it will have been money well spent.

Well said Ken.

You've actually half convinced me that it's a solid signing (if it finalises) .
