Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

A surreal transfer window... reading between the lines it seems like hardly any of our top targets for midfield and defence came to anything. Rojo and Blind can't have been any higher than 3rd choice targets in their respective positions. There is evidence to suggest we were turned down by Reus and ...

The best No 9 to have played in Europe in the past 5 years, can't believe he's come to us. He's a goal machine

Re: Burnley vs United

So dysfunctional going forward. Mata, Rooney and RVP are 3 big names but I'm totally unconvinced that they can play in the same team, without a lot of other quick players around them, which we do not have. Van Gaal has to be brave and drop one of them so we can go to 4-3-3 with Januzaj in one of the...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I admire Vidal as much as anyone but I think the signing is far too much of a risk, not because of his exact injury but because of the way it was handled with him being rushed back into action. There was an excellent write up on how mismanagement of Fernando Torres' injuries in 2010 ruined him (surp...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

If any of the figures involved in the di Maria transfer are to be believed, unless he comes in and has a Ronaldo to Madrid, or Bale to Madrid, level of impact, we've been good and properly and utterly taken to the cleaners. What a massive massive disappointing waste of cash. He's a top player, but ...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Balague on Twitter is saying final fee is approx £64m, with Di Maria coming to Manchester on Monday afternoon. Great player but a frankly unbelievable price, not far off the fee for Luis Suarez. He had a great season but a poor World Cup so no possibility of fee inflation like with the James Rodrigu...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Agreed on both points, Di Maria had his best ever season and the prospect of signing a player of that quality is great. He was a driving force, given a relatively free role, he was just devastating - setting up a ton of goals and generally playing a key role in a lot of Real's best attacking play. I...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Guardian, Telegraph and the Mail all saying Di Maria coming for somewhere between 48-60 million. I don't care where he plays, LvG will move the system to accommodate a world class player. If we can finish with a CM, be it Vidal, Khedira, Carvahlo or the promise of Strootman in January, I'd be over ...
