Chelsea have signed Werner and Ziyech, looks like they're getting Chilwell and Havertz, and possibly Thiago Silva too. They're not fucking about. Whereas we clearly are.

We're going to fuck this window up, royally. And its inexcusable. It really is a buyers market, given circumstances around COVID. We're one of few clubs in the world with the financial resilience to cope.

We'll fuck up the Sancho thing. We'll push it back to next year, hoping that less time on his contract will strengthen our hand. We'll sign an injury prone fuck like Douglas Costa on loan for a year - and he'll always be crocked.
We won't get a centre-back.
The extra left back we need? There'll be several good young left backs who move around Europe this summer for no more than 15/20m - Leicester will probably sign one to replace Chilwell, he'll be ace and then we'll be linked for 70m next summer.

We'll end up signing Grealish for something stupid like 80m, and giving Lingard another contract.

Bayern's Thiago is fucking class and it looks like he's open to a move. He's small but built like a brick shithouse, similar to Kante, which is the perfect size / shape for that deep lying midfield role. But he's so much better on the ball. Iniesta / Xavi like. He's class at playing out of trouble and beating the press. Would give our midfield a lot more dynamism than Matic whose gone back to the Static cunt we saw under Jose after signing a new deal.

And apparently clubs are baulking at the idea of 25-30m for him? No fucking brainer! He'll go to Liverpool, which will make them even better.

EXACTLY the sort of deep lying player we need. Someone who can help us beat the press, and open up teams from deeper when Bruno and Pogba don't have space.

The players are out there. We're just nowhere near well run enough to take advantage.

Why is he leaving bayern? If bayern wants a player to go then there's usually a very good reason.
If it's he who wants to leave to join us, then we're looking at an other sanchez.
Let's buy players who still have something to prove.

It sounds strange, but the transfer market is strange. Thiago for 30m isn’t stranger than us paying 130m for a CB who can’t run and an RB who can’t attack.

Rumour here is he's going to Liverpool.

we were in for Thiago when he was a fairly unproven talent at Barcelona but the story goes that he was fucked if he was going to join a team run by Moyes. He made the right choice there and, for the same reason, i can't see why he'd come to United when, as swampash says, he's been rumoured to be on Liverpool's radar since early summer.
I may be able to fix a forum but I can't fix a fuckwit
