Re: Pogba Confirmed

Eriksen would be a good replacement, perhaps even an improvement, but there’s no reason to assume he’d be interested in joining us.

Re: Pogba Confirmed

Say what you will about Pogba and Lukaku, but they were our top two scorers last season, and Pogba our main assists guy too. So there'd better be a fucking plan for replacing them, because right now, all I see is us crashing to the bottom half of the league this season.

Re: Fixtures for 2019/20

Unless we bring in some players that can address some of our most obvious problems, I don’t think it matters who we play or in what order.

Re: United set to create DoF role

Pretty long article here on our search for a DoF and our farcical recruitment discussions: https://www.espn.com/soccer/club/manchester-united/360/blog/post/3874416/inside-man-uniteds-painful-search-for-a-technical-director-and-why-it-matters-to-their-future Sounds like the appointment of a DoF might...

Re: Daniel James

He seems like a role-player kind of signing, a Chicarito, Park, or Young-type player. Gives the team width, pace, and hard work on the flanks. If I’m underestimating him I’ll be delighted, I’m just going by clips, where he looks keen, but I haven’t seen the kind of technique that beats players or un...

Re: United set to create DoF role

there's often a feeling that big arse agents have waved big named players under his nose and the manager at the time has not identified them as a target... or at least that's more or less what van Gaal was saying just recently regarding di Maria for instance. Yeah I think that's been true of Woodwa...

Re: Pogba Confirmed

We can't replace the whole team. Pogba at least seems to try hard. He's not as good as his price tag but he has some drive. A lot of other players need to go. There are no rumours about Jones and Smalling which is a bad sign Agreed. Unless Real offer Varane and/or truly stupid money for Pogba, it s...

Re: United set to create DoF role

Herrera and Griezmann have both left their clubs but neither has yet signed with a new one. Seems like a bit of a slow moving transfer window, with the exception of Real. Slow moving transfer window is not good for us, obviously, because ideally there's a lot we'd like to do. Referring to the articl...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

If Lukaku, Pogba, and De Gea were all to leave this summer, I can't imagine how many signings we'd have to make to have a decent top 4-worthy team. the only one that would really hurt is De Gea. And even then, putting Romero in shouldn't be too problematic if we strengthen properly. Hypothetically,...
