I don't buy that number - probably just positioning to try and send a message to clubs imposing a 'man united tax' when we ask after players.

Not that I'm arsed. Our problems are much deeper than whether its 100, 200 or 300m

Not so easy for us to shift players though, especially to get decent money for them.

Even before that rumour I was already thinking it might be bad if the club spent really big this summer, because the likelihood is that it would be poorly spent and leave us even more fucked. We need to stop digging a deeper hole.

There’s a god argument to be made for not worrying too much about buying a squad that can make top 4 next season, and instead focus on rebuilding the *club* as well as the squad, so that next summer you’d have a professional transfer system in place and money to spend. Problem with Unites though is that missing out on top 4 makes us even less appealing to potential transfers of the right caliber.

I agree with this tbf. If he doesn't and decides to give it a go with what they give him then he's at fault for what happens. I said this about all the managers we've had recently, he knows what he's getting into, fuck him if he can't deliver better football.

Been away for weeks with no internet access, so have missed all our transfer action. I guess by now we have cleared out the crap, sold on the mercenaries for top money, bought wisely to fix our well known weaknesses, appointed a DOF...????

Fatter chance of this happening if you'd come out of a coma a decade later.

If a manager resigns he gets no compensation. And that's usually close to 10m.

...oh.
So nothing‘s changed then?
FFS...
Have we done anything? Surely must have done something by now...

Course we've done something. Re-signed Mata. What more do you want FFS?
