The first of many excuses for our failure to land Sancho - https://www.theguardian.com/football/20 ... ayer-agent

What is laughable is that surely surely surely, the numbers men (Woodward, Judge et al) knew what it would cost United, rough ball park at the least, surely. It's facking bullshit damage limitation spin...

Okay dozer - bet is on. £10 [to any legit charity and preferably one on the Just Giving website, so you can check I make the anonymous payment], says we will not finish above 7th by Christmas. Shall we make it the position after Boxing Day games?
they're probably all crap charities, swamps
dozer's or Just Giving's?

Yep. Bollox. And I suspect he was never coming. Another year at Dortmund and then he'll be heading for a proper football club run by real pros.

Coronavirus has hit the finances hard, there's no two ways about it. All our revenue streams stopped, and they're still affected now cos there's no crowds. But it's probably only a problem cos the Glazers extract so much in financing and dividends.

Why not end of season? Or the position when Ole gets sacked. Whichever comes first.

And because of EBITDA assurances we provider to our creditors.

Yelled was voted liga NOS player of the season right before we bought him. So was Fernandes before we got him. Surely he has to be a contender for a starting place. Even if you take the penalties out of his stats, they’re very good stats for an LB.

I don’t know if our coaches are up to it, but I would be investigating training Shaw up as our left-sided CB. If he can get the positioning down, he has the other qualities we’re looking for there.

We bench Shaw. Because he's shite. Is he talented? Yes, like Lingard is talented at 28.
Jeez, ranters here really have low standards by sticking to their first impression about a player.
If a player is consistently mediocre to poor then throw him out. Real Madrid fans are on the other extreme end of the scale where they give the player 2 games at best. It's all about recent impressions for them.

I fancy a Boxing Day bet to back up my earlier posts about mid table at Christmas. After I've taken your tenner we could then have a double-or-quits bet on the end of the season.
Game on?
