Re: Assessing our squad

I think you’re being inconsistent there, Sid. On the one hand, you criticize managers who just lump the ball up to the forwards. But then you say we could win without great tactics or a philosophy, just by having better players. But that’s a recipe for just lumping the ball up to our famous forwards...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Fuckin hell, Varane announced. Fair Johns Yeah Real Madrid’s calculation here is interesting. Presumably they are paying Alaba very well, but they didn’t seem to want to go to the same level for Ramos or Varane. OK Ramos is in his mid-30s, but do they think Varane is on the decline? I really hope h...

United make it official. NO MORE FUCKING LINDELHOOF FUCK YEAH. One of the worst players to ever play for us being replaced by one of the best.

Question is how will he adapt to the Prem?
Much too harsh on Lindelof. He’s a high line ball playing CB. He’s not amazing, but he’s ok.

However it turns out, fair play to the club. If there was any CB outside our immediate rivals who we'd have wanted, its Varane. World Class CB in his prime. Can't ask for more.
Yeah if our defending is still poor after this there’ll be no excuses for the manager and coaching staff.

Re: Assessing our squad

Ole has improved the quality a lot since the team he inherited from the hoofer. Sancho, Varane, Bruno, Cavani Vs Lindelhof, Fred, Sanchez, 100m on Lukaku. Then you had Jones, Smalling, Young, Valencia, and fucking Fellaini that were playing far too often. But Ole has ditched em. He's also getting w...

Re: Assessing our squad

I still think we have some big gaps. Big question marks over the keeper spot, which is scandalous given how much we’re shelling out. I can see the sense in going after Trippier, and we should be able to get him for 15-20m. Then, we’re missing a top drawer CDM and in a years time we’ll need a top st...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Yeah the club seems to be doing well this summer. Sancho and Varane were clearly the priorities, and they’ve gone ahead and got them sorted out quite quickly. Sancho is big money, but Varane’s price seems fair, maybe even good value, by the standards of the market. The word is now that the club is l...

Re: Jadon Sancho - Welcome.

Right winger: Check Good passer: Check High IQ: Check Dormund player: Sigh... check. Hopefully he breaks the jinx. He's English too so there shouldn't be any issues in fitting culturally. We need him to hit the ground running. After Kagawa and Mhikitaryan, let’s hope third time is lucky buying this...

Very good signing on paper and if we get the Varane deal over the line it ramps the pressure up on OGS in terms of expectation and will give us an insight into how he handles big players.
Yeah he can’t say he didn’t get his top choices with those two.

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 ...
