Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I don’t need a superstar, but any decent specialized holding midfielder would be great for us. A Valanecia type player, rather than a Ronaldo, who understands the position and works hard for the team. Leicester just got another one from the French champions for less than £20M, and since they’re the ...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I’d say we won’t be buying another player without selling a few first. That’s why I want to see us trim the bloated squad. There are players like Neves and Trippier out there that wouldn’t cost much by United’s standards, but would definitely improve the first 11. Shift some of the Lingards, Jameses...

Pool have bid £86m on Chiesa. Why weren't we in for him instead of Sancho? He's got the drive, puts in a lot of effort and is very skilled. Like Sterling, perhaps even better.
I said that last summer. Excellent player, could have been had for 50-60 last summer.

Re: Assessing our squad

There are a few players we could happily sell, but won't do so. On the flip side, there are players we could bring in, but won't do so because we're quibbling over a few million here and there. The people running the club have a very weird mindset when it comes to money. Why are we keeping players ...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

We’ve gotten rid of a lot of players in the past few years, but it always seems like there’s still a whole lot more to move on. It doesn’t help that we spent £75M on new players last summer, but none of them have played much. Does Ole want Beek? Does he want Telles? Pereira, Lingard etc, just get ri...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

The more I think about it, the more excited I’d be if we signed Neves. The only specialist holding midfielder we have is Matic, yet we play two holding fielders. Neves is a specialist in that role and particularly good passer on top of that. So he’d go straight into the starting 11 and improve the s...

Re: OGS.....

What Chelsea has done last season has discredited the whole long-term rebuild thing. They brought in a top manager mid-season, and he instantly turned their shitty defence into the league’s best defence, and then won them the CL. Tactics, coaching, it does actually matter.

Re: OGS.....

I think Ole is doing well in terms of team spirit, signings, morale, and all that. But I’ve yet to see any indication that he can get us playing progressive, quality football. I’d like to see us using the ball like a top team, and see some evidence of players being coached to play in different posit...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I mean people said Herrera wasn’t that special and we could easily replace him with someone better. And that was true. But we didn’t replace him. Fred and McT don’t have the movement and passing that Herrera did. Our midfield has been getting less fluid and more shitehousey. Bruno has obviously done...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I actually think that’s unfair. It’s not like France and Juventus played similarly. I think he’s just had two managers at United that have been very defensive. Plus some of the players around him aren’t great. He has been consistently good when he’s not required to sit really deep. Better to sell hi...
