Re: Assessing our squad

Our incoming transfers are still always really obvious big names that any fan on a forum could suggest. And we have a good shot at landing them if they’re available because how well we pay. Whenever we sign someone who is even a little bit less high profile — Beek, Fred, James etc — they don’t fit i...

Re: Fred is banned by fifa

I can understand the South American football federations taking a hard line. They’re trying to qualify for the World Cup. And they’re middle income countries. it’s not right for players to learn their trade there, often with at least some taxpayer expense, then strike it rich at Europe’s big clubs, ...

Re: Assessing our squad

He must think he’ll get decent playing time. If he doesn’t he’s probably fucked up big time. But yeah, West Ham clearly valued him, they’re a competitive club and they’re in the Europa, so it wasn’t a bad option at all.

Re: Assessing our squad

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/58480332 What a fuck up. We offered Lingard a new deal? I don't get this. He rejected a new deal cos he won't play now Ronnie's here. But then turned down offers to leave? His contract runs out at the end of the season so he's doing the same as Pogba... let it r...

Re: Assessing our squad

interview with Donny - He's a young lad and it can't be good for your confidence when you've come from being one of the top dogs at Ajax to warming the bench at United. He seems to have done the right things i.e. stay fit, get stronger etc and says in the interview that he is equally as happy to pl...

Re: Assessing our squad

It’s interesting that Beek has chosen such a direct public approach to making his case. Fair enough I think, he’s not criticizing the club or the manager, and it shows confidence in himself, which is encouraging. And everyone can see how bad our midfield has been the last couple of games, so that he...

Re: Assessing our squad

Cleary unbalanced but no doubt about the world class talent added. Big pressure on Ole. Yeah it’s mad. We’ve spent £500M under Ole, which I think might be more than any other club out there. But none of it has gone to midfield. What you talkin’ bout bman…..£40m was spent on VDB….. Yeah but Ole seem...

Re: Assessing our squad

Beek’s agent has now said that he’d arranged a move to Everton but United wouldn’t allow it. I don’t get that at all. Ole is clearly never going to play him. Why not take the money? Why fill the squad with dissatisfied players? That can’t be good for group morale. And you’re just letting the player’...

Re: OGS.....

This is a huge challenge for Ole really. The size of the squad and the amount of quality in it is absurd. It gives Ole a lot of choices to make, which is both good and bad. You can’t ignore that Pogba got five assists in the first two games, playing more as a forward. But that would take one forward...
