Also worth bearing in mind that the transfer fees haven't necessarily been wasted commercially as the club has just got richer and richer in those last 5 years
It's a ridiculous state of affairs. Players actual ability has very little reflection on their 'price' anymore. They are like stock market commodities.

Yep, stock market commodities that increase the overall value of the company

It looks like the fourth player Woodward agreed terms with is McGuire

Alderweireld or Boeteng you wanted, McGuire you got

Commercially, we're flag bearers.

In footballing terms we're completely rudderless.

The players are ALSO the problem laz.
DDG, Valencia, Young, Matic, Fellaini and Lukaku are playing to the best of their abilities and have been consistent over the years. You may not rate some of their abilities but are any of them underachieving? Most of the others are also accountable, not just the manager.
Who gives a shit if crap players do their best? 11 Valencias would be worse. (And if this is Lukaku at his best, we need to replace him).

Obviously there's plenty of blame to go round, but what's the coach's job other than to get the most out of the players he's got?

Woodward's had three coaches and spent nearly £800m on players. A league cup, an fa cup and the europa is all we've won in his 5 years. Who's wasting the money?
We've got a good enough squad to win a major trophy but the managers have been the wrong appointments. They made 3 errors. The type of manager they chose was wrong for United. Alright Fergie is heavily responsible for Moyes but the board should have stepped in and overruled him. In hindsight it was a crazy decision. We should have nabbed Pep, Klopp or Poch. Done whatever it took like when we signed Cantona and Rooney. If we'd have got one of them at any point during the last 5 years we'd have at least one major trophy by now with this squad, last years squad - even Moyes / Gaal's squad because although it wasn't as good as the one we have now the league was a lot poorer back then.
This is exactly right. I get Woodward getting a dream job and not hiring a DOF to handle the good bits. But the Glazers are greedy cunts and they don't need to spend this much to keep us in the top 4. It's not like they need Woodward? Maybe he has some dirt on them.

According to Jose's press conference we aren't getting anyone else today.
Sad times indeed.

SSN saying we're making a late move to sign Godin from Atletico.

Great move - 8 years ago!!!!!!!!!!!

Who's next on the list - Bobo Balde?? Tony Adams????

In addition to this farcical effort to presumably sign anyone just for the sake of it, I did expect there to be a lot more outgoings.....
