Hey Ed's

Bit of different topic but what do you think will happen with Martial?

I heard from an ex pro the club would like to replace him. I'm guessing with Haaland but I am not sure who would pay £50M+ for him.

Utd Road

{Ed002's Note - Whilst there is interest in Haarland it would not be a good move at this time. I am not aware of a plan to replace AM with him. Right now the club will look to add a striker in January - it is unrelated to AM.}


1.) 27 Nov 2019 18:54:11
Cool thanks.


2.) 27 Nov 2019 19:38:43
Have you covered who those targets are Ed? Forgive me if so.

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}


3.) 27 Nov 2019 21:14:51
Cool I’ll rtp.


4.) 30 Nov 2019 10:37:27
I think we should try Martial in the 10 position if we buy another striker. Parrera, Lingard amd Mata are not going to score enough goals.

Aubydingdong to Utd?

You mean Aubameyang?
That's the last thing Arsenal would do lol.


2.) 27 Nov 2019 10:07:29
Where did we get Van Persie from.?


3.) 27 Nov 2019 10:22:57
rumours today that real madrid and barcelona both interested in him.


4.) 27 Nov 2019 10:34:51
Yeah they don't sell their best players.


5.) 27 Nov 2019 16:32:59
If he won't sign I'd stick a bid in.

We need some elite level mature players through the spine of the team.

AM9 = not good enough imo.

Hi Eds and fellow posters.

Ole mentioned the club are looking to make up to 2 signings over January and have players in mind.

Would be really interested in who would be the 2 to sign in January. But let's be REAL and suggest somewhat attainable targets for Jan.

Someone will ask for a summary from the Ed's sometime soon. And it could be interesting to see who is the guys you would like, who the club look to and ultimately what we end up with.

Utd Road

1.) 08 Nov 2019 10:57:03
i don't know who the club are looking at, could all be bluster to keep us happy. however I think that haaland/ mandzukic, would be attainable and maybe also someone like a bruno fernandes again. that's probably it although if reports are true then the like of emre can could be bought as he doesn't get a sniff at juve.


2.) 08 Nov 2019 11:44:15
I expect I'll be in the minority here but if the club's first choice for any position isn't available in January I would rather we didn't sign anyone.

Fred wasn't Jose's first choice but he went for him because he was worried he wouldn't get anyone else. Had the club not signed Fred then it is likely that we would have pushed harder for a midfielder this summer just gone. We might even have signed a player better than Fred and now have a better midfield.

That's the problem when you panic and just buy who is available rather than who is best suited.

I would rather wait until the summer and bring in the right ones. If we can get them in January then great.


3.) 08 Nov 2019 12:25:45
i agree that we shouldn't panic buy, problem is that if our form doesn't improve then a lot of fans will be screaming for signings. the club may well then panic just to ease the unrest.


4.) 08 Nov 2019 12:53:44
I'm with shappy I'd rather wait for the right player. However I think we need to sign 6 which is a big ask all in one summer. So if someone's available in winter and ee can get them I'd go for it.


5.) 08 Nov 2019 14:51:34
Mandzucic has been mooted for quite a while but I cannot see how he would fit in: croatia he plays up front but we don't whip crosses in from the flanks and at juve he has played as a second striker and on the left! Surely that doesn't fit in with the players we have, rashford, martial and james to name 3.
No doubt the media will link us with 40+ targets but can only see us asking seriously about 4/ 5 and possibly getting 1/ 2.
Personal thought is a striker and midfielder as priorty positions with mid being top.


6.) 08 Nov 2019 15:00:29
Panic is one of the reasons the squad is so poor


7.) 08 Nov 2019 16:59:45
Would love Bruno Fernandes. I think he is that creativity we're lacking behind the front 3. Sadly I'm not convinced he wants to sign for us as it would probably have been done in the summer just gone.


8.) 08 Nov 2019 19:10:26
I don’t know if they are or have ever been genuine targets but Milinkovic-Savic and Bruno Fernandes would transform our team. Fred and Lingard are not good enough to start every week and we are desperately short in midfield. Pogba or no Pogba, we need more quality through the middle.


9.) 09 Nov 2019 14:51:23
I think we can all agree that the two players should be Bale an Shhhhnyder!


10.) 09 Nov 2019 21:31:26
Sandro Tonali at Brescia should be signed asap.


11.) 10 Nov 2019 09:24:40
If it means we have a chance to buy our number one targets this winter we should do even it means paying slightly over the odds. At least that way we can integrate them into the team and they should be up to speed for next season.

Let's face it this season we won't get top four and if we don't get a Uefa place I won't mind if it means that we have a better chance of a title shot the year after.


12.) 10 Nov 2019 11:04:52
CF (Haaland for me) plus a DM and a No.10 are our three biggest priorities currently.

If Dier joins I’ll cry - the worst ‘midfielder’ in the premier league.


13.) 11 Nov 2019 10:05:18
I will be happy if we sign just squad players in January, main focus should be to get better first team players in the summer who will address certain key areas, money should be available for players like Madison, Martinez/ Haaland/ Jimenez, another CB and LB.


14.) 11 Nov 2019 12:41:25
haaland i can't see joining us anytime soon, now that raiolas his agent the fee will be silly already reports of £86m and every top european club all showing interest.


 

 

07 Nov 2019 08:06:07
ralf rangnick being linked to a Technical/ Sporting Director role today. Comes from the Athletic which imo seems pretty legit.

Interesting move, lots of experience and lots of good contacts around the world for young players - looking at Salzburg and Leipzig.

Could be a positive a sensible way forward. does it also creates the way for Nagglesman?

Utd Road

1.) 07 Nov 2019 09:06:48
The rumour I heard was that he is scene as a potential replacement for Ole for a year or two then for him to step into a sporting/ technical director role.

He is one of footballs best multitaskers, having previously fulfilled the role of technical director and manager at Lepzig.


2.) 07 Nov 2019 11:43:36
I am trying not to follow 'links' and will just wait till something actually happens. Will let you know during the Jan window, if this attempt succeeds. Till then, no butterfly effects for me. :)


3.) 07 Nov 2019 15:00:29
He also wants to control everything on the football side. Potential stumbling block.


4.) 07 Nov 2019 15:06:29
I think this will happen.


5.) 07 Nov 2019 15:16:18
Some great quotes on the once great MEN.

"There is a lot of space for a vision for United, but I am very happy where I am.

"Since Sir Alex [Ferguson] left they were underperforming. They haven’t won the title since he left. "

"At any club, if you cannot get the right players, then you should at least not sign the wrong ones. You are in trouble if you do that in one or two or three consecutive transfer windows.


"Club building is about building the right squad by transferring the right players away and having more than 50 per cent success rate of bringing in the right players. Then you must have the best possible coaches to develop these players. "

And speaking in October, he told The Guardian: "I am happy where I am but if any club wanted to speak to me, the question would have to be: ‘Can I be somebody who can influence areas of development across the whole club? ’ Otherwise you are only getting half of what I am capable of. "


6.) 07 Nov 2019 15:52:56
Ed002, What is your opinion on Ralf Rangnick? Would he be a good candidate either as a manager or in a technical director role at United?

{Ed002's Note - As a manager no and he is not what MU will be looking for as a DoF - he is a strategist and would be most suitable doing the same thing at a progressive club or group of clubs - such as he has been doing. MU do not fall in to either category I am afraid.}


7.) 07 Nov 2019 17:20:08
We're a corporation that plays a bit of football on the weekend. That's the category we fall into.

Ruben Dias. Happening. 🤞.

Utd Road

1.) 12 Jul 2019 15:44:14
I really hope we get Dias or Milenkovic rather than Harry Maguire.


2.) 12 Jul 2019 16:41:05
Same
also lots of Portuguese in the dressing room and history of the club so settling would hopefully be easy. I would guess the clubs know each other well based on transfer history and you'd think a deal could be done.


3.) 12 Jul 2019 16:57:45
Ed002 - have you advised someone at MU that we should be back in for Dias :) as you mentioned he would be the best option for CB. It would be great to get him.


4.) 12 Jul 2019 17:44:10
Really hope this is true.


5.) 12 Jul 2019 18:42:20
Ed002 has been on the money with the transfer targets once again, we're lucky to have this sort of insight on the site.

Dias and Milenkovic seem like the best options we have and here's hoping we see at least one of them come in. If we were able to get Dias and Fernandes from Portugal we will have done a couple of really good pieces of business from what I have seen of both.


6.) 12 Jul 2019 19:09:14
Where are the reports coming from?


7.) 12 Jul 2019 21:12:53
Social media. pinch of salt.


8.) 12 Jul 2019 21:25:34
I’m not saying Dias isn’t a decent prospect but why are people happy to sign him for the reported £60m but up in arms about Maguire’s price tag.
For me, Maguire would bring far more to this current squad than Dias. All you have to do is look at his attitude and influence around the England squad. He looks like a leader to me, someone who ingratiated himself into the England and Leicester teams very well.
Dias has the potential to be a good defender but signing him could be another Lindelof, a season to bed in and find his feet etc. That’s not what Ole needs right now. Wan Bissaka will fit straight in to the team it seems and I think Maguire would do the same. That gives us a starting back four of Shaw, Lindelof, Maguire if he signs and Wan Bissaka.
I can’t compare ability between the 2 because I’ve only seen Dias is a couple of games.


9.) 13 Jul 2019 11:15:34
2toms, Dias is already better than Maguire imo and will keep getting better. I don’t see Maguire as a leader. Yes he brings the ball out of defence but his technique is awful and he will get found out playing in Europe. He’s slow and his positioning is sceltical.

I really hope we get Dias and while we are shopping in Portugal, Fernandes too. I’m really excited about potentially signing those two players, they will both add something new to our play. Fingers crossed.


10.) 13 Jul 2019 22:57:59
Why don’t people rate Maguire?


11.) 14 Jul 2019 08:21:19
I know why many don't rate Maguire but wouldn't say it.

Anyone hear Ole’s comments on agents not wanting to place their players at Man Utd?

His response was pretty clipped but he said he doesn’t speak to many agents but knows players want to come.

Maybe nothing maybe Sancho/ Haaland?

NB - this is a rumour site :)

Utd Road

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what he has said but agents speak to others at MU on a regular basis. Perhpas he should ask around?}


1.) 11 Dec 2019 15:58:38
I think it’s a bit of spitting his dummy out with how he’s perceived by agents and the current press narrative.

The question was - what do you make of reports agents are not interested in sending their players to Man Utd and do you feel the recent performance would make players want to join (or words to that affect) .

Question probably related to rumours Mino not wanting to send Haaland and previously de Ligt to Utd in the current set up.


 

 

10 Dec 2019 09:56:23
Our current situation reminds me a lot of Rodgers first couple of seasons at Liverpool.

Some good signs, good players maturing, a few world class talents but very inconsistent. We may have some good runs but lots of inconsistencies.

I could really see the next manager benefiting for a lot of the decisions Ole is making now.

Similar to how Klopp has taken them lot up a numbers of levels now over a period of time.

My heart wants Ole evolves into an elite manager but my head is not so sure.

Utd Road

{Ed047's Note - not being funny but who are the world class players?


1.) 10 Dec 2019 10:09:24
I think you could make a fair argument for Rashford, Pogba, AWB, de Gea imo. (Rash and AWB might be earlier but based on where they are this season) .

Pogba - not in our shirt but World Cup performances is enough to back up.

Tier below would be Maguire, Lindelof, Fred, Martial, McTom.
Some very good players coming through in James, Tuanzabe, Greenwood,

I’d say there’s arguably a better squad considering some of the players Rodgers had at Liverpool.

Most elite level teams in the world would take these guys, just goes to show the level of underperformance and inconsistency that we are seeing.


2.) 10 Dec 2019 10:09:29
DeGea and Pogba are world class no matter what people saya bout Pogba but he is still a serious talent.

Rashford, Martial and AWB have got the talent to be world class.


3.) 10 Dec 2019 10:26:56
Ed047,

Correct, you aren't being funny.

DDG one of the best goalkeepers in the world

AWB one of the best young right backs in the world, you'll struggle to find a better tackler at the moment.

There are also a variety of other young players who have the potential to be world class. Rashford is showing signs of it, Martial is a great finisher just not consistent enough in his performances yet.

{Ed047's Note - Ahh, De Gea and then you are stuck with one of the best tacklers and potential so you’re right I’m not being funny, I’m was actually being correct.

But don’t let that steam up the old red tinted’s eh.


4.) 10 Dec 2019 10:57:11
Ed047, there’s too many united fans that refuse to expect that our players simply aren’t anywhere near a world class level.

De Gea is one of the best keepers in the world. Aside from that we have a lot of raw potential. But raw potential requires excellent coaching. What we have is a set of young inexperienced coaches flanked by a journey man.

Players like Martial have stagnated at the club, and will never reach their potential. I think we seriously need to re-evaluate how good our players are, and think about the quality of coaching required to transform raw talent into consistent quality.

{Ed047's Note - I know Danny and I don’t disagree with any of that, I really like AWB and he genuinely does have potential but as fans we can get so carried away with the term “World Class”

To be fair most clubs have raw potential and so very few come to fruition.

Some you know will make it, like Mbappe, Owen or Rooney but most are just a hope.

There’s little doubt the top coaches improve their players and if you don’t have that, as we had with Emery, they go nowhere.


5.) 10 Dec 2019 11:45:01
Since we are on the topic, what qualifies a player as world class?


6.) 10 Dec 2019 11:50:35
For me it’s a player that could reasonably expect to be a pivotal player in any top team in any of Europe’s top leagues, and consistently performs at a high standard.


7.) 10 Dec 2019 13:02:47
Utd Road - I too want Ole to succeed.
He is bringing in core values back to the club such as promoting youth and out working teams.
Seems very honest, humble and breathes United.

Hopefully he grows into the role and take the club back to the top.


8.) 10 Dec 2019 13:53:04
It has to be the top 4 or 5 players in a position in world football.

Would anyone deny that Messi, Ronaldo, Mbappe, Neymar, Sterling, Mane, Salah, Rashford etc etc are in a world class bracket?

Goodd luck fitting them all in one team though!


9.) 10 Dec 2019 14:51:03
I remember the good old days when you had figos, zidanes, batistutas, ronaldo, rivaldo the list went on and you never heard the words world class. One of the most overused worlds in football these days.


10.) 10 Dec 2019 16:02:57
maradona there is a player that can drag a team on to better things.


11.) 10 Dec 2019 16:59:52
I wouldn't say neymar was world class. It is an over used term.

{Ed025's Note - i agree mort..


 

 

05 Dec 2019 23:29:54
Hey Ed001

Would be interested to hear what you think of the current crop of youngsters coming through at United and also England in general. Seems endless at the minute, got to be optimistic for England too

I for one a loving all these lads coming through especially those from harder backgrounds and setting such good examples eg Rashford.

Utd Road

{Ed001's Note - they are looking very good at the moment, the difficult part is keeping them on the right path once they break through. That is the bit that Rashford is particularly impressive on. If they follow his example, they won't go far wrong. It is good watching them getting chances. My worry is what happens if the club brings in some players, will they still get their chances?}


1.) 06 Dec 2019 05:49:14
The interesting point is that most of the young players are out performing the older ones.
McTominay for example is clearly ahead of Matic and Fred.

Dan James is the clear preference in RW over Mata or Lingard.
Tuanzabe over Rojo, Jones and Smalling.

Similarly Brandon Williams is ready to oust both Young and Luke Shaw for the LB spot.

However, some of the young players are not of the required quality if we want to compete at the top.
We need significant upgrade over Andreas and even Martial (who still just wanders off the ball)

Additionally, we need to increase the competion for places to keep everyone on their toes.


2.) 06 Dec 2019 11:50:12
Ed001, What do you make of the youngsters coming through at United atm? Particularly Williams, Laird, Garner, Levitt, Gomes, Chong and Greenwood. Which ones do you think will make it?

{Ed001's Note - I expect Williams to make it, because he is already better than the options and there are so many other spaces that need filling it enables the club to save money there.

I have not seen enough of Laird to really be sure on him. Liked what I did see, but I would want to see a bit more of him.

Garner has something for me. That little extra something that makes a player stand out as a talent. Whenever I see him I think he has everything needed to make it. The only worry for him is that the midfield is so weak United are likely to go and splash out for players who will block his route. If any of them can cope with that I would say he would. I see him as an international in the future with little doubt.

Levitt is like Laird, I haven't seen enough to be sure. Decent when I have but neither of them have that swagger and presence that Garner has that makes it easy to see the talent.

Gomes, Chong and Greenwood all look set to make it, but they are going to need to fill out a lot and grow into adults without losing their way. Out of them Chong I have fears for in that dept, he is very weak and the work on bulking up could well interfere with his development as a player. He desperately needs to pack on a bit of strength, but needs to be careful to do it right or it can mess with his balance, his touch and his control.

Greenwood is slightly ahead of the others for now, but that often means that he will end up behind, as those ahead at this age often fail to work as hard as those below them. The others have to catch up and that is why someone like Rashford has done so well, while the players who were ahead of him have faded away. That will take careful management of Greenwood to keep him focused on improving. He will need more first team football, and bad games, to remind him that he is not the finished product yet. It is the bad days which will focus him on getting better.}


3.) 06 Dec 2019 12:47:53
I get what you mean with regards to midfield signings blocking Garner and Levitt. But considering we haven't replaced Fellaini and Herrera and both Pogba and Matic want out I can't see us signing 4 players. I can see them bringing 2 in and using Garner and Levitt as a cash saving excuse which would for once be beneficial.

{Ed001's Note - I hope you are right Mort. They need to play. Sometimes you are better to leave gaps in the squad just to give hope.}


4.) 06 Dec 2019 13:44:28
Interesting Ed001, I think me and you have similar thoughts. My concern with laird isn't whether he will be good enough, he looks almost as good as Williams does in many games. I think the issue for him is we have AWB a 50m signing and only a 4 years older ahead of him and Dalot a 20m signing who is only 2 years older than him.
Unless Dalot's injuries continue I can't see him getting enough game time to make it at the club. If he can get some good loans and keep developing he stands a great chance of making somewhere else.

As for Garner and Levitt, I don't see two academy lads both getting the chances they need when they play in the same position. We will make midfield signings over the next couple of windows. Which means there probably won't be enough space for both to get the game time they need. Out of the two Garner does look a class above Levitt who I think will like Laird need to move away from the club to make it.

Chong and Gomes clearly have the talent, but there are questions over whether they have the temperament. Neither have really shown enough when given chances this season. Both look like they need a loan to play regularly at professional level. I think they stand a good chance of making it, but I'm not sure if that will be with us.

Greenwood looks a class above everyone else currently, and he has all through his youth career. He will need to be kept grounded if he is to reach his full potential.

What do you think of McTominay? He has surprised many with how he has developed in the last couple of years.

{Ed001's Note - I have said all along that I really like McTominay and think he was always better than he was given credit for. It is because most people only look at what he does on the ball, but he is one of those players who are particularly good because of what they do when they don't have it. Yes he is a good passer and has a cracking shot, he can drive forward with the ball too, but he doesn't offer the same obvious skills as some, nor the range of passing of others. What he does is put it all together well and uses what he has to great effect. You can also rely on him positionally and to offer an option when a player needs someone to pass to. He is going to be a mainstay of the midfield I believe.}


5.) 06 Dec 2019 14:53:09
Ed001, if we are able to (sadly I doubt we will) get Maddison and Sancho then in a few years time a midfield and forward line of Garner, McTominay, Maddison, Sancho, Greenwood and Rashford looks fantastic. Along with AWB, Tuanzebe and Williams in defence and Henderson in goal. It could be a top side made up almost entirely of British talent.

Most United fans are quite down about the club at the moment, and I can see why. But when you look at the talent we have coming through, and the fact that our current situation will likely create chances for those players that otherwise might not be there then it is also an exciting future we have with these lads.

{Ed001's Note - would you take Sancho? I am not sure I would want him. The talent is there but his attitude has been honking lately. Billy big time he is and he has not yet done enough to earn the right to think he is special.}


6.) 06 Dec 2019 16:29:11
He does need to sort his attitude out a little, but the talent he has it might be worth taking a risk on him.

Besides, I doubt we'll get Sancho, he won't leave Dortmund for any team unless they are in the UCL. We probably won't be next season. So he'll probably end up at Liverpool as Salah's replacement I would guess. Which might be best for him as he wouldn't be expected to be the difference maker every week and Klopp would sort his attitude out.

Maddison is the one I really want though. I think he would make a bigger impact on out squad than Sancho would.

{Ed001's Note - you might be surprised about him leaving, as Dortmund are wanting rid.}


7.) 06 Dec 2019 17:39:29
Thanks Ed for the reply and all the others in the thread. Nice to be optimistic for a change.

I hear amazing things about Laird and his attitude, he is apparently the reason Williams is a Lb.

Williams I love already, top attitude that has drifted out of the game. Proper throwback and love a right footed Left Back.

Tuanzabe looks set to be either a first choice or mainstay back up.

Levitt for me is quality, compared to Modric in style. I think a loan to someone like Bournemouth or Sheffield Utd or even Germany would be good for him. It would also allow the club to ‘churn’ some players out and while letting him play for the next 18 months.

Garner is class, all action, leader and I’m sure could make it without a loan. I think the right Pogba replacement wouldn’t happen his development.

Gomes I really enjoy watching, something of an Ineista/ Ronaldiniho hybrid. I think he’s pushing for first team guarantees before signing up and would be better going out on loan and signing a big deal with us but out of the way making a name for himself for 18 months. Similar to Welbeck but a better loan than Sunderland and for 18 months.

McTominay is fantastic- reminds me of Rio’s description of Carrick “he puts out fires before you even see them” or word to that affect which I think is down to movement and positioning.

Rashford has levelled up big time, really similar progression stats as Ronaldo and Messi. no pressure.

Greenwood looks ready for greatness just needs to work. I’m sure he’ll be steered right.

James looks a revelation and an actual decent player not just a pace merchant.

AWB looking like a gear signing. Will be a good choice of defensive or attacking with Laird and Dalot in the wings.

Andreas in my opinion is a fine 4th choice but nothing more, if he wants more he should be moved on.

Some others i like and see intelligence in are: D’Mani Mellor - great feet and hold up play, Galbraith - a bit like fletcher, Mengi - could be special. Plus goalkeepers Henderson, who I’d like to see fight it out with de Gea next season and Kovar we seem to be getting it right somewhere.

Largie Ramonzanie - is looking good too.

As for signings
I’d like see a Cavani, Erikson, Bale.


 

 

02 Dec 2019 22:48:08
Ed002, if possible please would you be able to clear up the Blanc quota comments. From reading it's seems quit sensationalised and left bias, and I was wondering if there was a bit more to it than meets the eye.

(Appreciate this is a sensitive topic, np if youd prefer leave alone)

What happened when we had Pogba, Matic, Mic, Fred and the rest playing, what happened there? what's was the excuse then?

And then, why sack the Legend and smilling one if we can still finish top 10?

We have proved we can play well and score we have seen it but a lot of the time it's to late. I don't get we havnt got the squad to compete. yes we have and we have shown it in parts.

{Ed047's Note - every mid table average club can have moments when they play well and score mark.

If you had the squad to compete it wouldn’t be happening occasionally.

An average side is what we are watching, an average manager, its a points and results business, 2 promoted sides, 2 points no disrespect to them but its Manchester United after all.

Ibem pogba and matic are included in the above post.

Pogba may have shown glimpses of being a top player but he is no where near a top player.

Matic. His legacy went last season

Our best midfielder is mctominay.


As ed has put it we are a mid table club with mid table players.

Yet we are still better than most of the teams we can't beat at home or away.

So, we need midfielders and a new manager. Because you can put OLE in Leicester right now and they will be 5 or 8 in 4 months.

Ibem we ain't better or we would be beating them.


Maybe we should ride out the storm before adding another manager with another way of playing and another set of coaching staff.


How many more times do we need to replace the manager?


Did we not all call this in the summer.


We didn't sign any midfielders we never replaced lukaku?

What did you expect?

Today is on Ole.
His selections are poor.
No game management.
Players shooting from every where.
Look totally uncoached.
Poor subs and timings as usual

Plenty of choice in Mid Field of going with a three at the back.

Not good enough at all from the manager.

{Ed033's Note - The Milky Bars are on Ole :)

He's about as useful as the Milky Bar Kid.

Without pushing our luck but any chances of Outs?

{Ed002's Note - Matip, Smalling, Jones, Pogba, Mata, Sanchez. But much depends on the coach.}

Nail on head there Shapps

With Ole now there's no point in changing anything however I do think Ole is underperforming but the change in management would only result in marginal improvement for a cost of going back to square one.

We will come Jan 1st how seriously the club are backing Ole.

As for the future I want to see the Direction come from above in whatever role - sporting director / director of football.

That needs to happen first or we are are stuck on the same wheel.

Looking at the scouse that's basically what they did when they sorted out their transfer committee. Different problems but similar solution. Every business or team or organisation is led from the top and a reflection of their priorities.

I think it’s a bit of spitting his dummy out with how he’s perceived by agents and the current press narrative.

The question was - what do you make of reports agents are not interested in sending their players to Man Utd and do you feel the recent performance would make players want to join (or words to that affect) .

Question probably related to rumours Mino not wanting to send Haaland and previously de Ligt to Utd in the current set up.

I think you could make a fair argument for Rashford, Pogba, AWB, de Gea imo. (Rash and AWB might be earlier but based on where they are this season) .

Pogba - not in our shirt but World Cup performances is enough to back up.

Tier below would be Maguire, Lindelof, Fred, Martial, McTom.
Some very good players coming through in James, Tuanzabe, Greenwood,

I’d say there’s arguably a better squad considering some of the players Rodgers had at Liverpool.

Most elite level teams in the world would take these guys, just goes to show the level of underperformance and inconsistency that we are seeing.
