Nah, we needed players fuckin STAT, wed just had Moyes, we’d only signed Fellani and a panic buy in Mata, Rio was gone, Vidic had just left, Evra had just left, Evans was getting binned, we were signing Rojo again off a World Cup year, LVG had just taken Blind with him to 3rd in the World Cup with a shit and ageing squad, we were signing young Dutch players that looked the dogs balls like Depay but we had punted on O’Shea and Brown as well, Smalling and Jones and Rojo were our defence, Carrick was ageing, Scholes had retired again with Fergie although even in that deep lying role he was never a dm, still, Fletcher had recovered but gone, Fellani wasn’t convincing anyone he was a dm.
LVG has used Blind who could also cover 3 positions it seemed judging by his performances before United and no one lets be honest went this cunt looks shit.
We were excited because Moyes was gone, we didn’t realise RVP had had his two top seasons in his last at Arsenal and first at United, buying a dm/cb/lb for not much money on top of the specialist in those roles we thought we were buying in Shaw, Schneiderlin and Rojo made complete sense.
Why do you think there are a cluster of about 6 young cbs/lbs that never quite might it all from that season spread through the Prem and championship that played that season.
I’m sure there are players like McNair etc who are happy they got so much exposure
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.
