Well we're off and running with regards to incomings. Positivity with the malacia signing and potentially there are more to come. Be interesting eriksen coming as his play is similar to bruno but he will offer great dead ball delivery: worry there's noone that is readily identifiable as an expert header/ finisher though, atm.
The cr7 saga rumbles and for me he can go to whoever as 1 years wages and say £10-15 m fee would allow the books to balance with say Martinez?
Worried about our stiking options though with the options reducing but would look at, silva, calvert lewin as options with attacking prowess of gnabry or anthony. Still many weeks to go and unlikely scenarios to pan out. Have a great summer guys!

Good man funky.
I tend to agree with a lot of that. I think if we do get fdj our midfield looks a lot better.
If martinez comes in our defence looks better.
I think ronaldo should leave but leaves us very short up top imo.
Rashford and martial would have to have some turn around under eth to get us the goals we need.
Ronaldo exit was not planned for publicly at least so I'm sure they will work hard on options now.
Can't wait till the session kicks off.

I’d maybe give Rashford the benefit of the doubt, purely because he’s been plagued by other distractions and probably never been given a good run as lead striker. Martial……. he can sit in the U23’s for me.

As for Calvert Lewin……. as low as we may have fallen, we can do better. But in the long term Ronaldo saying he wants to go has actually done us a favour, it makes our mind up for us.

Bruhhh calvert lewin do we need another maguire situation?


4.) 06 Jul 2022 14:23:53
With several positions needing upgrade, we may have to try for a free transfer like Dybala or Belotti.

Ideally I'd have loved the club to go after Lautaro Martinez, Vlahovic or Scamacca.

If I could I'd try to get Hugo Etikite and one of Depay, Belotti, Moussa Dembele, Icardi or Dybala.
Etikite seems to one of the wonderkid striker signings but at 19 being a regular starter might be too much for him. That's why I'd sign one of the other 5 who are players that have reached their peak and are like 10-15 goals a season strikers with experience playing CF. Belotti and Dybala are free transfere, Depay is available on the cheap, same for Dembele. Icardi could be a loan signing, but he could be a problem too.

shappy- There's a big obsession that we "won't score enough goals without Ronaldo". we here that all the timeand another "where would you be without his goals? " but the ones that spout it don't realize that we don't play with 10 men if he isn't picked!
btw I'm totally in agreement with your post.
Also we could just unearth a gem who fits better, scores as many or more and brings more to the game. If cr7 wants to go get a few quid send him away and invest his wages in someone who is a longer teerm prospect. we may even see the other players whose form dwindled step up, Bruno, rashford and sancho?

Have to agree Ken on the content of your reply- youve got to be cruel to be kind. Mata is undoubtedly a good guy and hasn't caused any problems at the club but its time to cut ties with the big earners who don't play for whatever reason, be it selection, form or injury. if the rumors are to be believed we could save over 1.2m pw in wages by getting rid of out of contract and those who don't play, bailly, tuanzebe and henderson for eg.

Well we've tried the superstar route and that's failed. so why not? Would always prefer someone who wants to perform rather than someone who thinks they can rock up and be a starter.
Last night was embarassing with the only good thing to come out of it being the pool fans respect for the tragedy in the ronaldo family.
Hope its the last time we see pp in a utd shirt but better would be for him to take at least 6-7 players with him to pastures new.

Good news if its true Bolger2 - still not confident in this lot getting ETH in without at least a caberet of cock ups before conceding.
The priority must be for whoever to start the clearout, possibles/ good business = DDG, MARTIAL, RASHFORD
Need to go/ oocontract = tuanzebe, awb, bailly, matic, mata, pogba, jones, lingard, cavani, ronaldo.
wouldnt lose sleep but harder to get rid set = maguire, shaw, varane.
Basically a club reset but we can't get rid of all those in one window and replace them in squad, even using the youth team?
2-3 could be used in bargaining deals and 5-6 are out of contract: that's still a lot of players to bring in but probably attainable. If we dont, we will be no further forward (propbably further behind) than at any time in the last 8 seasons.
Audioflynn, I do hope you're wrong re pogba but if you prove correct any info on how to get a refund for 2 x season tickets would be welcome!

apparently lingard ok with loan deal but worried about relegation? newcastle still pursuing but we want a sale- seems simple sell with a clause by some fancy lawyer that if they go down he can leave no issues with a min bid. we sell a player and wages off the books, nufc get a decent player for nominal fee and jesse gets minutes to shine before world cup win win win.

I will be there east stand supporting the team as per usual. Its the season start, every team equal. Irregardless of who plays/ starts if they play well or try, they will get the cheers, if crap they will get the stare of dissappointment ( not a fan of booing/ jeering my own teams players) .

Its like any other sport, a crapppy game, misplaced passes etc but if they pop up to score a 96th minute winner off the back of their arse then its a win, all smiles and on to the next game.

Shawthing, I see where you coming from its just that fdj according to a variety of statements doesn't want to come to us. We have tried but he is although a top talent in his position, not the only piece of the jigsaw that may fit: just an expensive one.

It could be countered that by pulling away from the deal also shows a positive statement of intent that we will not be treat like crap and messed with false hopes by Barcelona or any other club. We have always paid over the top for players and that is why we fail to shift them when required.

Also, one for the eds to clarify possibly, but Barcelona have issues with fdj for as long as we have had interest and haven't burst their size5's to resolve. this is more pressing as if they don't shift personnel they can't or will struggle to register lewandowski, kessie etc etc.

Op- personal choice would be forget FDJ. Not a fan of Neves, sanchez injury prone but would like to see Laimer in a utd shirt: we have a history of tough tackiling ball winning mids, robson, keane etc. Always liked SMS andrumoured to be around 50m? change out of the fdj money allegedly to maybe get dest or rb in? wouldn't be against depay on a free and would be very happy with the window.
Telles out on loan is a goer and shifting bailly, tuanzebe and awb would be beneficial as minutes on the pitch would be minimal for these guys, add jones to that.
Priority today mr Ten Hag if you're reading- fine cr7 2 weeks wages and get rid . Let him buy out his deal and go - we save the wages, but more importantly get rid of the soap opera a year earlier. Also dean henderson hasn't done himself any favours and his situation should be monitored. These guys are supposedly pro athletes who should have a bit more to their behaviour.

Well, we have it from ed002 that the player doesn't want to join.
Simpl: move on to next target SMS?
Possibly a better fit as he can play, dm, cm or am. Rice is reportedly vastly overpriced and not for sale and although I assume others are on the list, then if not what will do the required job, then move on to another position.
would rather we had went for de jongs teammate at holland De Ligt as it is also a position we needed to sort but that ship has sailed.
Confident of a couple more players incoming and 3 out plus loans.

After the last 9 year of mediocrity, I don't want to view the coming season with rose tinted glasses but do feel a little happier that we have moved on a few and brought in a few players.
It will take time as we can't change all the wrongs at once but I'm hopeful of better performances to start with and changes in playing staff along the way.
who knows what the new season will bring? I don't think Liverpool will be involved in a last match shootout for the title and who knows how haarlands form will transfer to epl? Chelsea have a major defensive rebuild to contend with and Arsenal and spurs have intoduced a lot of new players who need to adapt.
The biggest hindrance for us will be the thursday night league but 14 other clubs would swap us in a heartbeat to play in the europa so things could be worse. Not a ball been kicked competitively this season and there is doom and gloom! Enjoy the season guys .
