I'm going to copy what I saw on the Liverpool page to see if I have the same luck to get an answer. So here goes. Ed02 if you were Ole, (my apologies for the degradation) who would be your realistic targets for CB, CDM, RW, and FW this summer.


{Ed002's Note - Assuming money can be raised through sales and considering the players Manchester United have been looking at, Ben White (CB), Konrad Laimer (DM) - but there may not be space in midfield - more versatile than a RW would be Leon Bailey and then it would be down to departures but Manchester United will be offered Andre Silva or could go down their well-trodden path of bring someone in at the tail end of their career like Benzema.

1.) 16 Mar 2021 14:46:34
Thanks very much for your insight Ed02.

2.) 16 Mar 2021 20:25:49
Very interesting - is there any chance of another INS and OUTS update?

{Ed002's Note - At some point.}

3.) 17 Mar 2021 07:35:09
Thanks very much for this informed opinion Ed002 - just had a look at Konrad Laimer and he looks perfect for us if we can make room for him. Much better one of him than two of McFred. Glad to see that we’re interested in him, thank you.

Looking forward to the update when you have time!

4.) 17 Mar 2021 01:56:28
Love_United, I reckon Ed002 would love to be in Ole's position rather than be Ole.

Ed002, has anything changed with respect to VDB as there are rumours of him wanting out.

{Ed002's Note - It is as I have explained previously as far as I know. Donny van de Beek (CM) has been offered to Real Madrid and Juventus, and will be offered to Barcelona due to a lack of a plan or direction at MU. But both Spanish clubs have moved on and unless Manchester United would accept a long-term payment plan or loan to buy there would not be the spare money to buy him. If Pogba leaves there will be space in the team - but MU seem intent on holding him hostage. Juventus has a preferred CM target but might be open to a loan to buy deal. Inter may provide an option if he is to leave.}

5.) 17 Mar 2021 11:51:25
Thanks Ed - I haven't seen enough of Laimer or Leon Bailey to play, can anyone shed some light? I've seen plenty of Ben White and I'm not a huge fan, he's ok but there are better options for (I imagine) cheaper. Andre Silva seems to have come good over in Germany and has a physical presence so could be a sensible move as Haaland is impossible.

{Ed002's Note - Laimer is very well thought of and RBL are aware that there are clubs looking at Konrad Laimer for next summer and some of the interest is driven by the price of Zakaria which has put interested sides off. Bayern Munich have considered Laimer, as have Borussia Dortmund (as a Weigl replacement) and Manchester United (but not until they have sorted out their midfield problems).

Leon Bailey (LW/RW) A player who has had his mojo drifting away and Bayer Leverkusen are open to him moving on. Spurs are keen but want the price to drop further. Prior interest of Everton and Leeds has drifted away - Everton already being over loaded with players who are predominently LW and Leeds have preferred options. Arsenal or Manchester United may offer an option but Arsenal really need to make some decisions on their squad.}

6.) 17 Mar 2021 12:07:09
Thanks Ed002 but do you rate VDB?

{Ed002's Note - He was a very good player in the old days when he got a game.}

7.) 17 Mar 2021 12:49:28

It is very strange that VDB has been bought and not played.

I actually feel sorry for the player.

{Ed002's Note - Clubs have to have plans for players.}

8.) 17 Mar 2021 14:11:07
Certainly sounds like VDB was bought and wasn't really what OGS wanted.

9.) 17 Mar 2021 17:52:36
Re:Pogba. According to italian media, Raiola had promised that Juventus would make a good offer for Pogba last summer. Then C.V. came, Juventus suffered big losses and the offer was never made.
So Juventus has to share part of the blame too.
Unless Raiola is pretending that United accept part exchange with Juventus players no one wants due to their high salary (eg Ramsey) .

10.) 17 Mar 2021 23:35:19
Is it the case Van De Beek was bought as a Pogba replacement though? Or is the 'not fitting with Ole's plans' bit as Ole actually wanted Grealish? Agree there has to be a plan for players when bought - we would say that for the likes of Pellestri let alone more senior experienced pros.

I actually think Van De Beek is a good player. Very highly regarded at Ajax and some stellar performances in Champs League. It does seem a little off that we have such a technically gifted player as VDB who can't even make the bench but Fred (guaranteed to spoon one over the bar from 30 yards every game / gift possession away with half his forward passes) starts every match!

11.) 18 Mar 2021 13:09:58
Honestly I'd find that window so uninspiring and underwhelming.

For me it's all out for:
Varane or Pau Torres, Sancho and Haaland (DCL or Silva as back up)

Sell: Ddg, Martial and one of Axel, Lindelof or Bailly, plus Jones and Mata going,

{Ed077's Note - NO to Sancho and Haaland from me, unless the price drops significantly. And also they need to start maturing a bit and stop being divas.}

12.) 18 Mar 2021 14:25:56
I think Sancho should no longer be a priority we the ridiculous overall fee .
We have Greenwood who can play on the right and Diallo for whom we paid 35m million odd.
And there is Pellistri too.

A top class striker has to be a priority over a Right Winger.

{Ed077's Note - with the younger players you've mentioned TRD Sancho's youth almost plays against him, IMO. I would rather a little more experienced player for the RW role. Someone around 24_27, ideally.

13.) 18 Mar 2021 16:55:25
I hear you 77 and to your point perhaps Bailey is an option.

I just think we should target based available no more Lindelof and Fred types.

Eyes will be on the new team.

14.) 18 Mar 2021 17:21:36
Haaland should be the number one target along with a creative central midfielder and a centre back.
Get a few quid in by flogging Martial, Dalot, Lingard and Pogba if he still wants to leave.
Just try and give Jones away as a freebie.

15.) 19 Mar 2021 14:57:08
If haaland and sancho can't drag dortmund in to the top 4 in Germany I don't fancy their chances of bringing us a title.

16.) 20 Mar 2021 07:36:41
If we weren't able to sign Haaland when we were only up against BVB, what chance do we have when the world and his mother are now trying to sign him.

17.) 21 Mar 2021 13:09:20
Haaland will look at Real and City before us. Chelsea no doubt be in for him too and I actually think they may be the dark horse for his signature as expect them to go very close in the Champs League this year. Tuchel has got that defence sorted for sure.

Agree our opportunity to sign Haaland was surely last season. The 'not signing due to Raiola's sell on clause' will really come back to bite us. I recall the Eds saying at the time though that Haaland more likely chose Dortmund as they had a defined plan for him including working on his weaknesses etc.

Think one of our problems trying to get the right players for us is we approach it as though players will automatically lust after signing for us irrespective of where we have been the last few years.

Since most in here are of the opinion that a lack of proper funding is what's holding Ole and by extension the club back. I have a hypothetical question. If Ole is provided with all his targets this summer transfer window, will that in turn make him a better coach and change how he approaches games.


1.) 29 Mar 2021 08:07:13
Will it change Ole from the make sure we don’t lose first mindset? Will it change his underdog mentality? I doubt it

It won’t make him a better coach but it would give him and his fan club less excuses.

2.) 29 Mar 2021 09:19:56
It's a funny one, the club have spent well over 1bn since Sir Alex retired. So on one hand it's hard to say money hasn't been spent. Yet there is a clear pattern emerging that we spend big when we need to get back into the top four, and significantly less (half as much) when we have qualified for the UCL.

For me that suggests that they will spend money when they need to in order to keep the sponsorship money coming through the door. But there seems to be a lack of ambition to really make that push and invest to take the next step once we are in the top four. It seems like fourth or above is enough. Which should be concerning for all fans.

That said if the money that has been spent was spent more wisely then the gap between us and City would be much smaller.

People talk about the need to sign a CB, CDM, RW and a ST. But the reality is that would cost 250-300m if we are buying players at the level required.

Yet we have easily wasted 500-600m on players who have already left because they aren't good enough. While there must be 200-300m worth of players still at the club who still have a question mark over whether they are good enough.

If we spent that money more wisely then we would be much better off regardless of who is the manager.

As for would better players make Ole a better coach? Of course they wouldn't. They would make his job easier and by extension we would be a better team and gain better results. It's like any worker gaining better tools, it doesn't make them better at their job, it just makes their job easier.

3.) 29 Mar 2021 13:17:34
If Ole gets better players like Bruno, there would definitely be some impact.

However, He has struggled to integrate a technically strong player like VDB.
So it can go either way.



21 Mar 2021 19:15:07
Am not into bashing players. But Fred is rubbish. Pure rubbish. A professional footballer can't control a ball, can't make a 1 yard pass without giving away possession, and to make matters worse was substituted in the 83rd minute. What exactly was he doing for Ole to keep him on so long I don't know. Substitutions were wrong in my opinion. Would of kept Pogba and Donny on. Bruno on for Fred, McTominay for Matic. Donny to play alongside Mctom with Pogba and Bruno further forward. Apart from the atrocious attempt at defending, midfield cost us that game.


{Ed077's Note - Fred isnt good enough anymore to be starting most games. He was fine/tolerable when we were 6th-7th fighting to get top 4 but not anymore. Some fans now want to compete for trophies even if its just for ego.}

1.) 21 Mar 2021 19:42:39
Fred matic pogba need to go from the midfield pogba mainly because he doesn't want to be there and even when he does we don't know which pogba we get.

I'd sell all 3 promote garner buy Saul you then have Scott Saul donny garner I'd use hannibal as 5th option and Bruno cover as I don't expect Bruno to need cover to much.

I'd also let cavani go he seems to want to go back to South America might have been different had his year in Manchester not been during a lockdown and get rid of martial he's had enough time with us now to show if he can be consistent or not.

Biggest problem is at the back and for 80m we are stuck with him unless the club/ manager grow a set and realise he's not good enough and the fact he needs to play so deep ruins any chance of attacking football as he pulls the midfield even further away from the attackers.



21 Mar 2021 18:42:31
Fred, Fred, Fred, Fred, Fred, Fred, Fred, Fred, Fred, Fred,


1.) 21 Mar 2021 18:56:01
It just goes to show what a proper DM brings to a team.

Tielemans is playing 1-2’s round our midfield while we have the worst Brazilian CM since Kleberson.

Credit to Leicester they were brilliant today.

Not really sure what else to say about Fred without sounding “toxic”. I’ve said several times he’s just rubbish at football things and we’ve just seen proof of that. Really really poor, he wasn’t the only one, but he was the worse player on the pitch and has just shown we will win nothing with Fred starting in our midfield.

{Ed014's Note - 🙂

2.) 21 Mar 2021 18:58:32
One of the worst players on the ball. Never seen someone so poor in passing. And the first touch and ball control is laughable.

Who scouted him and we paid 50 million pounds?

{Ed014's Note - wasn’t he supposed to be better than Fabinho too?

3.) 21 Mar 2021 19:02:34
Someone blatantly saw that he was brazilian and runs around a lot and thought he was the next fernandinho.

Must not have watched any actual videos of him.

4.) 21 Mar 2021 19:07:09
I think you are being a tad unfair about Fred. No he is not a 50m player No his touch isn't always the best but he gives his all in every match and is far from the worst player I have seen in a Utd shirt.

Nobody laying into Scott who had a poor game today and fell asleep gifting the killer goal to Leicester.

{Ed077's Note - I would give my all every game as well. We are talking about the highest level of football. There needs to be more to any player than just runs a lot IMO}

5.) 21 Mar 2021 19:04:23
Ed14 you call people on this page trolls but you are the biggest troll of them all and there’s at least some validity to what another poster said to your earlier today.

Nobody said Fred is a good player, he’s really poor, and as I said many times I’m really not sure what our scouts saw in him to decide that he’s the right midfielder for us.

That’s where we’d take Partey but you can keep the rest “😉”.

{Ed014's Note - you need way more than Partey Wazza and I still wouldn’t swap squads. 🤷‍♂️

Also what have I trolled you about now and who exactly have I called or labelled one?

6.) 21 Mar 2021 19:13:40
Salford7 are you for real. Fred is abysmal and the problem with some fans and the clowns who run the club now accept mediocrity. I’d give my right ball to pull on that famous shirt.

7.) 22 Mar 2021 00:03:09
Blackpool Red
. I hate the mediocre fare Utd often serve up and yes Fred is nowhere near good enough but at least he does try every game. He alone is not the reason we lose matches so it is unfair to scapegoat him.

{Ed0666's Note - Buddha loves a tryer



17 Mar 2021 16:42:18
According to our illustrious leader. Winning trophies is more of an ego thing and doesn't necessarily show that a club has made progress and that a league position is a better gauge of progress made. What do you guys, Ed's included think of that statement.


1.) 17 Mar 2021 16:49:27
I can see the point he is trying to make.
Does a winning run in the fa cup show progression in the same way league position does .

Knock out football is different, teams don't play against the same teams, limited number of games etc .

Would you rather win a cup or finish high in the league is one discussing

What shows better progressing league position or a cup run is a different one.

{Ed077's Note - for a guy who has lost 4 out of 4 semi-finals, surely winning a cup is progression. Or am I an idiot?}

2.) 17 Mar 2021 17:02:05
77 surly there is more than 1 side to the argument?

I can see the point he is trying to make especially when you see the full interview. obviously some can't or don't.

I do wonder if it's got to a case on the site that anything he says is wrong 🤷‍♂️.

{Ed077's Note - so will you accept finishing in top 4 forever without winning any trophies for say a decade?

My thinking is winning trophies brings more confidence to the whole squad, breeds a winning mentality. Finishing far away from 1st is not much progression whether you end up finishing 2nd or 3rd. I would rather finish 2nd than 3rd again this season but for me we are a club built on winning trophies.

Winning say an FA cup isnt the only way of showing progression but trophies are what is remembered and judged by. You know what I want OGS to "apologise" properly cocking up the UCL group after the first 2 matchweeks by going out and winning the Europa.}

3.) 17 Mar 2021 17:24:46
77 of course I wouldn't accept finishing in the top 4 forever .
What makes you think I would, I don't think that is the point ole was making .

But he didn't say that, he said the league is a better way to judge progression.
And that if you show progression in the league consistency cup win wil follow .

He said "But sometimes a cup competition can hide the fact you’re still struggling a little bit"
I understand the point he is trying to make

But like I say I think at the moment anything he says is wrong .
Trying to leave ole out of do you disagree with my op or got an opinion on it?

"Does a winning run in the fa cup show progression in the same way league position does .

Knock out football is different, teams don't play against the same teams, limited number of games etc .

Would you rather win a cup or finish high in the league is one discussing

What shows better progressing league position or a cup run is a different one"

{Ed077's Note - How high? You can finish 2nd like We did under Jose or like Liverpool did under Klopp 2 seasons ago. If we are finishing a distant 2nd then 4th and Cup is better for me.

The manager of Man Utd saying winning the cups isnt that important when he isnt challenging for the league is almost unacceptable for me. And might I remind again OGS has LOST 4 out of 4 semis. I think he needs to prove that he has that winning mentality as a manager, and he isnt going to prove it in the league this season now is he? Competing for a CL place to again competing for a CL place isnt a tangible enough progress in my eyes.

Like winning a Cup can "hide" some underlying issues and give false impression, so can finishing higher in the league. Use Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool as an example. They werent the 2nd best team in the league when they finished 2nd in the league. But their league form hid the deficiencies in their squad and manager as well.}

4.) 17 Mar 2021 17:42:21
He is waffling and knows he ain't winning anything again this year.

5.) 17 Mar 2021 17:45:19
If we finished 3rd again and won a cup I'd say that's better progress than finishing 2nd and not winning anything.

Winning trophies is what it's all about. No kids run around a field dreaming of scoring the winning goal to clinch 2nd place in the league (not outside of North London anyway) .

CL qualification is the absolute minimum required. I wouldn't sacrifice top 4 for the FA Cup but if we reach a final this season as well as finish 3rd as a minimum, that's progress.

6.) 17 Mar 2021 17:45:57
I would much rather win trophies than finishing in a high position in the league. Nobody remembers who finishes 2nd or 3rd. Plus winning trophies keeps your best players happy and attracts better players to your club. Let's see how long the likes of Bruno and Rashford will be content with finishing high up in the league. In the immortal words of Ricky Bobby, "If you're ain't first, you're last".

7.) 17 Mar 2021 17:53:12
We are in the trophies business. Nothing better than winning a final (regardless of the trophy) and winning the league. Fans remember lifted cups not finishing top 4.

Winning the Europa League under Jose and finishing 6th was much more rewarding than finishing 3rd with Ole.

The manager knows ending this season without a trophy will raise serious questions. He's trying to spin the situation to suit his arguments. He's done it since day one with "United D. N. A" "fast attacking football" nonsense he doesn't actually practice.

Most managers talk nonsense. He's not the exception.

8.) 17 Mar 2021 18:02:41
I can see his point and i agree at some extend. Arsenal win the FA cup a lot of times but don't have progression.
Progression isn't always measured by trophies but that said the timing he said that is more like excuse in case we lose tomorrow. "Dont judge me on trophies because you see the progress at the league".
In this time he must have attacked to win trophies. Its not the measure but it is what big clubs want.

9.) 17 Mar 2021 18:04:37
Manager who hasn’t won anything at this level says we don’t need to win anything to prove his progress. The Olesexuals will support that view because that means we can sit and applaud failure as progress. Second in the league is failure.

Second is first loser unless Ole says so. It is just getting excuses in early, if I fail in the cups again it doesn’t matter, just judge me by that lovely DNA I am introducing.

It is utterly disgraceful that the Manager of Manchester United does not see winning trophies as vital
, that they are not the barometer of success. He should be ushered out the door at the end of that statement.

10.) 17 Mar 2021 17:59:04
Ed77 for me the league doesn't lie.
When the scouse finished 2nd they where the second best in the league that year .

4th with a cup or 2nd with out etc etc its a completely different convo.
Like I said ;

Would you rather win a cup or finish high in the league is one discussing

What shows better progressing league position or a cup run is a different one.
I understand the point he is trying to make But I don't really think we are discussing what he said. More discussing what he has done as a manager
I'm not really interested in another ole debate, I think it Bern done to death .

I personally think league position is a better indication of progression than a cup run although there are obviously a few variables in there.
That's my personal opinion many will disagree. That's fine.

11.) 17 Mar 2021 18:13:54
Olesexuals 😂😂😂😂😂

Class that Redman.

12.) 17 Mar 2021 18:20:54
Just wasting time with this manager. Get someone in with the hunger and know how to win. Why all the excuses with all the money being spent the past few years+. Just get on with it and say you want to win and anything less is failure. He's a wet boring lettuce.

13.) 17 Mar 2021 18:37:31
Yer good one redman 🤣🤣.

14.) 17 Mar 2021 19:23:26
We all want trophies, and imo, we were a bit unlucky not to go through to the finals of EL last season.

That said, we went from fighting for top 4 to holding or "defending" the top 4 spot, while closing the gap (for now at least) for the 1st spot.
I'd call that a progress.

We should always aim to compare to the top clubs, which City is now, but when we compare the two squads, its obvious why they hold top spot.
We have a pretty good record against City, but league is a marathon, and they almost have a double squad.

I suppose Ole wanted to say that nothing can be achieved over night. He didn't surrender the cups, that's for sure, he just said there are more ways to see progress.

15.) 17 Mar 2021 19:33:23
Trololo, that's what I was getting at . You worded it far better tho, good post.

16.) 17 Mar 2021 19:45:57
Herrera good point on arsenal there.

I think its worth saying ole was talking about what shows progression, I don't think he said winning a trophy wasn't important.

Forgetting about ole do people not think league is a better way to judge a team or show progression?



14 Mar 2021 13:39:11
I seriously give up. This club is eating away at my soul. Nothing worse than seeing something you care for slowly being destroyed due to ineptitude. Like it's borderline deliberate what their doing. Only people who care about this club are it's fans. If the reports are true and he's being handed a new contract, I hope they have all their summer targets lined up and are ready to back him to get every last one, since they have so much faith that he's the right person to take this club forward. Can't say I live in hope, cause there is nothing to give me any inspiration that things will get any better under his tenure. So in that case I live in despair.


1.) 14 Mar 2021 13:56:22
We are currently second in the league.
And people are in despair,

2.) 14 Mar 2021 14:17:05
Do you think Ole will win us the league Jred?

3.) 14 Mar 2021 14:27:52

This season is a one off for Utd. I think next season clubs will recover from this hectic season.

Our club is stuck in the past, he'll bent on hiring ex players who know how to play the Fergie way.

4.) 14 Mar 2021 14:30:27
Mumbles yer I think we have a chance if we get the summer signings right.

5.) 14 Mar 2021 14:34:00
Whether you are for Ole or not, unless there's a disastrous run of results, Ole is not going anywhere. So if this team is not giving people any joy then they may get used to it or try to find positives that can be enjoyed. If it annoyed me as much as it seems to annoy others then I would stop watching.
Oh, and rest well Marv, you truly were marvellous.

Mumbles, Ole probably won't win us the league. But then I don' think anyone will win us the league, at least not with how we are run currently.

Name me a manager who can take a young group of slightly miss matched players, and can make them into a top side with their 4th or 5th choice signings and they only get them if the club fails. Succeed with getting top 4 and then the money dries up.

Pep and Klopp would have failed at United, even they knew that which is why they turned down the job when offered.

10.) 14 Mar 2021 15:03:39
I like your optimism jred. Let's hope you're right.

11.) 14 Mar 2021 15:03:41
I think we need a cb and a striker.
Cavani will leave and i don't think lindelof is good enough to be starting the majority of games .
Bailly unfortunately can't stay fit .
We need a bit of pace next to maguire a player that complements him . Personally I would like to see us sign Godfrey from everton or some one with similar attributes .
Up top someone with pace, workrate good in the air . Be handy if they can play across the front 3, sticking with Everton, Calvert- Lewis would be ideal.
There are many others out there .

I think pogba is a big one, I would like him to stay I think he will do well in the right team, I think we are missing him at the moment. But if he goes he will need replaced we need that creativity. Match of the day fever I'm watching tielesman, someone like that but I would like pogba to stay .

{Ed077's Note - Godfrey, DCL, and Pogba to stay (Fireman's if he goes) it is then. Making sure it's mostly players not going to be available.

12.) 14 Mar 2021 15:27:36
Ed77 what do you mean by, making sure it's mostly players not going to be available?

{Ed077's Note - means we will very likely not get them and have lower expectations. Didn't mean to have a go at you per se but those targets wont be signed and you will be satisfied not genuinely contending for the league.

13.) 14 Mar 2021 16:01:53
So Shappy, no manager in the world can win the league with Man Utd?

14.) 14 Mar 2021 16:09:16
Ed as I say there are many others out there .
But I would buy a cb who complements maguire, someone with pace, good in the air good on the ball.
A striker with the the attributes I mentioned above and if pogba goes a creative player, goid in transition who can find a pass .

Doesn't have to be a big name or a certain name.

{Ed077's Note - what I meant to say was we would have the same argument next season, with some like you saying we aren't anywhere near ready to challenge for the league and others saying we would if a better manager was at the helm.

I think I didn't make myself clearer in the early replies.

Ed77 it's a banter site that will always be thd case .
Some might think this current squad is good enough to win the league.
Personally I don't but each to their own.
I think we are moving in the right direction again some don't.
A few won't be happy until ole is sacked . Regardless of thd squad.
1 or 2 where talking about relegation last season. So each to their own.

{Ed077's Note - this "Ole in/out" debate is reaching "Thoughts on Rooney" levels of tiresome and repetitiveness lol😂😂

Mumbles not with how we are run currently without a load of luck.

I second that notion Mumbles. Get rid of the "INEPT ONE". Get a proper coach.

We could sell him to Arsenal Ed14. Maybe Arteta can bring out the player in him.


{Ed014's Note - there isn’t one to bring out mate and I don’t think Arteta is in to all that dressage stuff to be honest.

Nope. It won't happen. And even if there was some glimmer of hope of a collapse, Ole would find a way to muck it up.

I agree with you 💯 Caolan_2. The amount of times Rashford got kicked, especially on his ankles, gave the impression that it was deliberately done. And the amount of fouls they committed without being booked, but when a united player did, instant yellow card. The game wasn't the best to begin with and the refereeing made it even more disjointed.

And there lies the problem. What style exactly does Ole play or has he implemented or tried to implement so the board can target the right set of players to fit his system. It's been almost three years now and there is no clear pattern/ style that he has tried to introduce. It's just sit deep and counter attack, sometimes even against so called weaker opposition where we should be imposing ourselves. We always complain that Ole isn't being backed and not given his first choice players. But the question is which so called world class player will come to United just to play counter attacking football. So which is it, does he play counter attacking football because he doesn't get his first choice players, or is counter attacking football all he knows.

I need help understanding something. All I keep hearing is the owners lack ambition or motivation to make this club champions again. The Glazers took over the club in 2005. Between 2006-2013 we won 9 major trophies, more if you want to include charity shields in the equation. What was the one constant during that period. We had Sir Alex (good manager), David Gill (good director) same rubbishty owners. We only heard about no value in the market from Sir Alex only after Ronaldo was sold and was replaced with Valencia. Enter 2013 and Sir Alex retired. Between 2013-2021 we have won a total of 3 major trophies, 5 in total if you want to include the charity shield in the equation. What was the one constant during that period, same rubbishty owners, Yet the club has spent close to £1billion in transfer fees, since Sir Alex retired. So are they really the ones to blame? Yes they burdened the club with debt and they take dividends, but the point is they still provide funds. Ed has constantly told us that the owners are not involved in the day to day runnings of the club yet they are the ones being blamed. United fell into this rut because they failed to handle the transition from Sir Alex correctly. If the right coach/ manager was hired from the onset we could have been in a much healthier situation.
