Under Fergie there were always the world class mixed with squad depth like Park, Oshea, Fortune, Rafael, Anderson etc. We need to increase our world class players, and that's Woodwards job. He is failing miserably at that now.
If he fails Mourinho it will be more of the same, only worse negative football and even more bitching and politics behind the scenes

We need the young uns to become world class. Martial is a dead cert. But it would help if Smalling, Rashford and a midfielder became shit hot world class stars too. I can't see it personally but I wouldn't be surprised if that was genuinely the Glazers' business plan.

You are obsessed with Jose, what about when his antics start
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.

The age of our squad has dropped dramatically. I personally have no problem lowering my expectation if it means having a team (rather than a group of individuals) in a couple of years time.
Do you want Fries with that?

It's now clear...the Glaxers/Woodward/LVG have groomed us to accept failure and being s second rate team

If we play the youth against Arse I'm quite looking forward to watching it, Okay they may get beat, but if they show the desire and hunger to win that they showed against Midjyydland, then great, at least we are on the right path at last, even Depay was allowed some freedom to play and show us what he can do.

He'll not risk Martial, be interesting to see Rush hour upfront against a good team, don't think Smallings back either so they'll have a field day against our defence

:)) I know it's shit it's got to this, but we're here now and the long game is the best solution IMHO.

Too many of Fergie's purchases went sour. Whilst he thought he was buying the next big things, Anderson and Nani flopped. Hargreaves crocked and Owen and Valencia replaced Ronaldo... we all know we've been fucked for some time now.

Lets face it Arsenal should wipe the floor with us and I will be surprised if they don't looks as well like United will get fifth ....... West Ham United.

I don't think we will get thumped, but Arsenal will be too strong for us. It doesn't really matter what happens between now and the end of the season anyway. We all know LVG is safe irrespective of results, at least until the end of the season.

All that matters IMO is if LVG goes in the summer, and the club gets itself back on track by hiring a world-class manager.

That, and something is done about Woodward's role.

It has been a pretty forgettable season. I can't wait for it to end. I'm not really arsed about today.
