Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I think Ander Herrera is exactly the kind of player we need. Tackles a lot, aggressive, good range of passing, creative, can carry the ball forward too. Only thing he doesn't do is score, which isn't all that important from one of the holding players. The way the Fellaini transfer has been conducte...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

From Sky Sports: We are hearing that Manchester United are edging closer to agreeing a deal for Everton ace Marouane Fellaini. Talks are thought to be at an advanced stage between both clubs. Fellaini is expected to play for Everton against Cardiff on Saturday, but United are hopeful of securing th...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

If we bought Fellaini and Herrera (since the Herrera looks more like an attacking mid Fabregas alternative), that would be a combined £55M or thereabouts. That's kind of mind blowing for a pair of decidedly non-marquee players.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

United's always interested in the best players. There's no value in the market. I'm happy with my squad. We've always been at war with Eastasia.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Paying over 30M for this guy would be the definition of deadline desperation.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I don't know anything about Herrera, but if he's not good enough to walk right into United's first XI and help make us a realistic contender on all fronts, I'd just as soon pass on him and put away the checkbook until January. That would give Woodward and Moyes four months to read and digest Buying...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

The canniest investment we could make would be to hire Dortmund's scouting and transfers team. Look at some of these finds they've hand in recent years: Reus 17M, Gundogen 5.5M, Lewandowski 4.75M, Kagawa 350k, Hummels 4M. The United premium isn't the problem -- half of our transfers are flops no mat...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

They're going to take us to the cleaners. Don't know anything about Herrera, but if he can't get into the Spanish squad, he must be a big step down from Fabregas or even Thiago. 30M euro seems a bit outlandish for a player with such a comparatively low profile, he's 24 not 19.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Oh brilliant statistic, "Fellaini didn't score while playing as deep-lying midfielder". He might have scored more goals if you weren't moving them. Who are you quoting, and what is that last sentence supposed to mean? It's simple really: no club at the level United once occupied and would like to o...
