Re: Squad

Interesting comments from Louis Saha: Don’t get me wrong, those (Martial and Rashford) guys have talent and all that — I really like the potential, it is enormous. But they are playing in a configuration where there is no link to express themselves. I had big players around me. If I was not performi...

Re: Ed Woodward, ballbag

Yeah that was reported before. It's consistent with van Gaal saying recently that when Woodward interviewed him, he didn't even ask him about his football philosophy, and almost immediately after he started Gaal started complaining about excessive commercial shit in preseason. We run by clueless wan...

Re: Liverpool

It's Spirit of Paris small club mentality time, with zero possession, the odd flukey break, and lucky refereeing decisions. That win gave Ole his job, and I think it convinced him that he has to stick with bus parking, hard-working kids tactics.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

There is a lot of talk about us getting someone like Moussa Dembele or Maddison in January. I can’t see how their clubs would be interested in letting them go in mid-season, unless we were to offer them fuck off stupid money. If we couldn’t get Dembele this summer, why would be able to in Jan? I wor...

Re: Liverpool

So we’re basically a Mourinho team without getting the results. It’s like supporting Ireland.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Eight players over the next two years is not anywhere near enough. Consider that; Rojo, Jones, Fred and Young are hopefully all gone next summer. Just replacing them takes up one full year of transfers and squad wise we are back at the same level, of course we will be getting Smalling and Sanchez b...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Three players that might be gettable in January, if the club is willing to make hard to resist offers, are Hakim Ziyech at Ajax, who offers goals and assists from right wing, Bruno Fernandes, and Moussa Dembele, for striker. The three of them would give you a new attack basically. Fernandes and Ziye...

https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/sport/football/strikers-man-utd-transfer-targets-17065752 In lieu of proper scouting we should just buy from clubs who obviously know what they're doing - like Salzburg.

Re: Ed Woodward, ballbag

I don't know if the club hurting financially is good for supporters or not. It might not shift the Glazers, and just make us spend less on football. The revenue is going to take a hit in any case. We might not manage to sign as profitable a replacement for Chevrolet, because we really took them to t...
