Re: OGS.....

You make some great points Bman, but I'm just not having that City might sign Lukaku. Guardiola needs a CF that can control the ball, and that's not Rom. He also needs em to move between the lines and run for 90 minutes. Rom does 2/3 sprints in a straight line, gets knackered, then jogs for the res...

Re: OGS.....

We're calling him Martial now and not panic buy? Rashford will eventually turn into Martial. Rashford might not become a 20 goal a season player, but he seems consistently more dynamic and more productive than Martial. I think he’s at least a solid CL quality wide attacker, and arguably a particula...

Re: OGS.....

Ole looks set for a new deal. It will be interesting to see how many years they'll give him. Its the "safe" option. OGS won't publicly kick up a fuss to Ed or the owners, and "should" continue to get us top 4, which is all the glazers really want. Saying he should, I wouldn't be so sure he will, an...

Re: OGS.....

I’ve seen several different journalists and commentators saying in the past few days that there are a number of our players who might want to leave in the summer, because they aren’t getting playing time. Including new signings like Beek and Telles. And of course if Pogba goes, I doubt we’ll replace...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

What about Kane instead of Haaland? He's gonna be 28 next season and Tottenham is a dead end, especially under Jose. So if he wants major trophies he's probably going to have to leave. And Spurs need cash. Son too, he'll be 29 next season. Kane won't win anything. He's got the Tottenham DNA. He'll ...

Re: OGS.....

As a point of interest, apparently Pochettino is very expensive to hire, not because of his own personal wage demands, but because he has a really large team of coaches and trainers and back room staff he brings with him. I can understand United wondering if it was the right course to change so much...

Re: OGS.....

I think your dislike of Ole, which is possibly going to become hate, and frustration at the status quo, is clouding your judgement. Cos you are one of the most sensible people on here who you can have a proper convo with about nuanced points like this. Fair enough. Though I don’t hate Ole, he’s sti...

Re: OGS.....

I think some of that is overly positive. Still paying players like Jones. Lukaku, Smalling, Young and Herrera weren’t axed, they walked. We got decent money at least for Lukaku, but his value and reputation has definitely increased since going to Italy. In the meantime, we reinvested all the Lukaku ...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Remembering how much people used to complain about Carrick? Would anyone dispute that he was several levels above Fred and McT as a DM? That’s how low our standards have fallen. Carrick used to not be good enough for many United supporters, but he’d look like a genuine superstar in this team now.

Re: OGS.....

The frustrating thing is knowing that nothing is going to change. The club have shown they’re not going to change anything about how things are run off the pitch. “Oh you want a director of football? OK, well you can call this guy the director of football then. See, job done!” Woodward is obviously ...
