We're still 6 signings from getting any where near the top 2.

Still need CB, LB, 2xCMs, RW and ST.

AWB- been ok brilliant at times could be better going forward.

Maguire - for Me very poor. At least 8 goals come from him keeping people inside, just sticking out instead of putting body on to block shots. He's always out of position and loses ball a lot.
He does well in interceptions decent in the air but couldve signed. Mongs, Ake and Dunk to do same for less.

James - good start fizzled out. All pace little else.

Next two windows are crucial.

James does what Rashford or Martial do, which is track back and still has a tank load of desire and energy late in games when he plays a full 90.

James is in the top 3 or 4 in the league I believe for stats. he's been very good. Coming from an average championship team aswell so I think you're being a bit harsh on the kid.

Does nothing but 3 goals, 6 assists (most in the club this season) tracks back, win free kicks, and goes past people.

James has been one of our most consistent performers this year with a goal or an assist every other game so fizzled out is a bit harsh.

Ah nothing like judging players after only 6 months of trying to settle in to a new team, Club, city etc. All they’re were good signings and an upgrade on what we have. Issue being we need 5-6 more as stated. This squad is negligently paper thin, and the worst one I’ve seen collectively for over 30 years.

While playing on his weaker side (right hand side rather than the left) .

He has 9 goals/ assists from 18 games while playing in his weaker position, in a team that isn't playing well consistently, while stepping up from the Championship to the EPL.

If James can replicate or improve his goal/ assist return in the second half of the season to finish with 18+ goals/ assists for his first season at the club. Then he will have a strong case for being our best signing of last summer.

THE worrying trend after reading posts, a lot from the eds is that as a club we are not an attractive proposition to the better players.
As ed002 states regularly, we seem to be run in an amaturish way and are always last to the party when it comes to negotiating: indeed we pay top dollar for the preverbial unwanted sausage roll! .
The fact that regular posters on here are clamouring for 5/ 6 signings in this window as opposed to 1/ 2 teaks would be good in the past, shows how far the standard of our recruits have fallen.
Any bright light in the team, AWB, JAMES, GREENWOOD etc are quite often masked by the overpayed, underachievers lingard, pogba martial, shaw and maquire to certain extent.
Dont know the answer but sadly convinced that the former legend of a player who both smiles in defeat all too easily and has seemingly no idea/ plan abc tactically- isn't the answer. I really fear decades of mediocraty for us with drastic reductions in revenue causing the club to fail to recover to our former glory years.

Add maddison into our team and I think we would comfortably be in top 4 with a healthy squad. Andreas has been our best 10, but goals, assists and general creativity has been poor from that position all season.

Fred and Mctom would be effective with that sort of creativity ahead of them.

But we are paper thin for injuries in midfield and Pogba clearly wants to go. So that becomes a second urgent need. Matic wants to go, so our depth is worrying. CN any of of young players step up in this second half? So one purchase plus an increased role from Youth perhaps?

Ed2 mentioned getting Saul in for PP. I would be stunned if Saul would come to us right now, but that would be a big upgrade to our midfield this season. I don't think we need a CDM - just better all round midfielders to add to Fred and McT.

Ole's biggest mistake was selling Fellaini. We moan about not being able to break the smaller teams down, no plan B if the front three cannot find away through, yet we had the perfect solution, send up the big man to create mayhem, confusion and usually a goal.

04 Jan 2020 21:39:37
So ole's biggest mistake is selling the guy that 99% of people on here wanted sold?

07 Jan 2020 20:59:06
Elbows Fellaini was a great Plan B. But I think that by selling him Man Utd. were making a statement that they were moving away from that strategy.

I actually think that Fellaini would feature loads for Man Utd. while you're struggling in a game. It's a shame for you that he's no longer an option.
