Plus it comes back down to the same old shite Club X wants X amount for Player X and because its United they can usually push the price up a lot, if the player is wanted stop fucking around and make a deal where the player comes to United and if you pay over the odds then that is modern football instead of dithering so that as in many cases the player winds up somewhere else.

Ole admitted we needed one or two midfielders even before Herrera left. If the window closes like this, you could hardly blame Pogba for saying fuck this small time club, and forcing an exit before the spanish window closes. then where the fuck will we be. Matic, McT, Pereira, Fred.

It really looks like we won't sign a midfielder, which is just astonishing.
Nothing about this club astonishes me anymore.

I'm not surprised either.

Maguire will either stay at Leicester or go to City.
Bruno will go to Spurs and be brilliant.
We wont pay Dybala the kings ransom he wants to come here so Lukaku will stay and be a big sulky cunt.
Pogba will have to stay so he'll be another big sulky cunt
And we'll make a ham fisted deadline day approach for someone we haven't really been linked with, that either fails or who we pay over the odds for, and either way it'll show what a reactive, amateur set of fuckwits we are.

Sporting have said we've never bid for fernandes.
He's apparently got a clause in his contract where he gets a €5m bonus and a raise if Sporting reject a bid, so unless you want to piss them off, you don't make an official offer until it's been agreed.

Never really understood what Dybala does. Is he a 9, 10, inside forward? No clue on the cunt
When Dybala had that excellent season in 2017/18, Allegri said that Dybala was good enough to play 9, false 9, 9 1/2 or 10. He even went as far as saying he could play as an offensive midfielder, his passing was that good. This would suit Ole's proposed 1-4-2-3-1 formation, which the team have been playing in pre-season.
Knock off Rooney, but will he press for Solskjaer? If we ended up with Fernandes, Dybala, Martial and Pogba making up 4 of the front 6 (and the other two would likely be Rashford and Matic) would his system even work?

That said, I'd be shocked if we sign more than one player before the window closes.

Knock off Rooney is probably a fair description but he has the potential to be proper WC.

Ole is probably banking on Martial being more consistent this season but he doesn't press much, nor does Sanchez. Fernandes is probably the luxury player that we want (and as fans, need) but one that Ole doesn't need with his system.

All signs point to that of being a reactionary club, trying to plug leaks rather than building a wall. Perhaps because the club has fucked up so badly in the past 5 transfer windows, wasting £500 million in fees and god knows how much more in over-paying the mercs, that they've now adopted this position.

Sad to say this, but we need to slide well down the PL for the message to get through to the owners. Only the prospect of them losing income big time will save us.
I'm half hoping we drop like a stone.
