Good article Sid - nail on head stuff.

Relaxed? Says it all really.
Hard to disagree.bman2 wrote: ↑11 months agoThe club is clearly briefing now that there will be no more players coming in. Eriksen not interested, unsurprisingly. Dybala not interested. The fact that we were chasing two high profile players who weren't interested, in the last week of the window, shows that whatever our strategy was, it failed badly. Also shows what a nonsense it is for Ole to be saying he's happy with the squad. Obvious bullshit.
In the end, we're a step up from Leicester for British players now. That's our place. Frankly Jose was right to throw a strop last summer and Pogba is right to want out, because United has become a waste of time for anyone with ambition.
I agree, I like our two defensive signings. They are definitely no bargains, but the chances of them being good and improving us are high. I don't know about Fernandes. In theory he looks ideal for us. But clearly no club is interested in him at the price Sporting are asking; he might be a bit of a flop if you were to sign him, a player who had a great season in a lower quality league. When I watch his highlights, an awful lot of his goals come from shit keeping -- they aren't great strikes, they wouldn't beat a decent PL keeper from those distances.ashleyfuckingyoung wrote: ↑11 months agoThe deals weve done make sense, by and large. De Ligt would've been better than Maguire, who we've over paid for. But we simply dont have the negotiating power or skill to have gone about those deals differently.
The one I cant understand is the Fernandes deal - hes perfect for us, available, fair price etc. Cant believe we haven't acted.
