Anderson, Nani (I think), Guiseppe Rossi, Rafael, Fabio, Nick Powell, our youth setup all have failed.
It's hard to remember the crap young players, I'm sure there are a lot more.


yes, but this is why your argument comes across as fatuous to me. You're talking about "splurging" cash on young players and then giving a list of players that didn't cost very much. Nani was 20 and I think, even though it wasn't stellar, he had an OK career for us. Anderson is a case in point... I'll let him be "the fourth" then.

No you didn't.... but I did. At the time, he was the most expensive teenager ever in English football. I'd say that counts as a "splurge".

United don't buy teenagers yes but that's because they are USUALLY a liability.

You can't deny that your initial post came off as if you were implying we were constantly fucking up and throwing cash at young players. We've splurged on plenty established stars that have, retrospectively, turned out to be a mistake.

Apparently he has another girl up the duff. Jose needs to have a word!

That might be the excuse Jose needs to get rid

to be honest, i'm disgusted that Mourinho isn't running safe sex education sessions. what sort of manager is he?

I strongly suspect we'll sell Martial and buy Bale in the summer.

I accept I’ll be in the miniorty but I’m not convinced that either Martial or Rashford are quite good enough to be top players.

He's rejected a new deal, and Tottenham are in for him
