I know it's short term deal, but it is really depressing going from one of the top euro striker talents in haaland at the start of the window, to signing a has been watford reject from china on deadline day.
It really sums up utds current projection.

We sold Lukaku because Solskjaer didn't like him. That one's not on the board.

A loan isn't the end of the world, even if he's shit, but you can't look at what we're doing and think the summer window will go well. We're still only looking at players offered to us or ones who've played for the manager or have the same agent. Happened with Moyes, Gaal, Mourinho and now Solskjaer. Whatever bs we hear about scouting a billion right backs and coming up with wan-bissaka, clearly there's still no one at the club with a clue, or at least no who gets to make decisions.

But seriously what level is Ighalo going to be at if he's played in China for 3 years. And their season ended 2 months ago. How long till he's fit, let alone PL fit.

Ighalo finished top scorer in the African Nations cup 2019 beating Mane et al....Apparently Barca bid for him last summer.... who knows how this one is going to go. Could surprise us all.

That's all well and good, but heres another stat, the last season he played top flight football in the pl, he scored 1 goal in 18.

I know that was for a shite team, and maybe he will offer us something, but its just a really underwhelming deal, which the pr machine will push as another success in this new woodward/ole transfer rebuild.

Ole wanted a striker who'd break his nose to score and signs fucking iglaho?! He'll only break his nose.

Should never have come to this. Lukaku and Sanchez should have been replaced by at least one top striker.

Dont get me wrong, theres a touch of embarrassment about this - though I think hes handier as a player than some might think.

But this move will only really be framed by what we do in the summer. Josh King is better than Ighalo - but if he'd signed then we wouldnt be getting anyone of real quality in the summer. This move still leaves that door open. Whether we'll actually follow through and getting that quality in, is another question entirely.

Fans threatening Woodward are the reason we finally signed Fernandes. We ended up paying the same sum Sporting were asking for in summer. Ed gave it the go ahead to relieve the pressure.

Scumbag thugs had nothing to do with it. Perhaps attacking Woodwards wife and kids will get him out of the club. So why not do it eh?
