Re: Assessing our squad

Ole has improved the quality a lot since the team he inherited from the hoofer. Sancho, Varane, Bruno, Cavani Vs Lindelhof, Fred, Sanchez, 100m on Lukaku. Then you had Jones, Smalling, Young, Valencia, and fucking Fellaini that were playing far too often. But Ole has ditched em. He's also getting w...

Re: Assessing our squad

I still think we have some big gaps. Big question marks over the keeper spot, which is scandalous given how much we’re shelling out. I can see the sense in going after Trippier, and we should be able to get him for 15-20m. Then, we’re missing a top drawer CDM and in a years time we’ll need a top st...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Yeah the club seems to be doing well this summer. Sancho and Varane were clearly the priorities, and they’ve gone ahead and got them sorted out quite quickly. Sancho is big money, but Varane’s price seems fair, maybe even good value, by the standards of the market. The word is now that the club is l...

Re: Jadon Sancho - Welcome.

Right winger: Check Good passer: Check High IQ: Check Dormund player: Sigh... check. Hopefully he breaks the jinx. He's English too so there shouldn't be any issues in fitting culturally. We need him to hit the ground running. After Kagawa and Mhikitaryan, let’s hope third time is lucky buying this...

Very good signing on paper and if we get the Varane deal over the line it ramps the pressure up on OGS in terms of expectation and will give us an insight into how he handles big players.
Yeah he can’t say he didn’t get his top choices with those two.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I don’t need a superstar, but any decent specialized holding midfielder would be great for us. A Valanecia type player, rather than a Ronaldo, who understands the position and works hard for the team. Leicester just got another one from the French champions for less than £20M, and since they’re the ...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I’d say we won’t be buying another player without selling a few first. That’s why I want to see us trim the bloated squad. There are players like Neves and Trippier out there that wouldn’t cost much by United’s standards, but would definitely improve the first 11. Shift some of the Lingards, Jameses...

Pool have bid £86m on Chiesa. Why weren't we in for him instead of Sancho? He's got the drive, puts in a lot of effort and is very skilled. Like Sterling, perhaps even better.
I said that last summer. Excellent player, could have been had for 50-60 last summer.

Re: Assessing our squad

There are a few players we could happily sell, but won't do so. On the flip side, there are players we could bring in, but won't do so because we're quibbling over a few million here and there. The people running the club have a very weird mindset when it comes to money. Why are we keeping players ...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

We’ve gotten rid of a lot of players in the past few years, but it always seems like there’s still a whole lot more to move on. It doesn’t help that we spent £75M on new players last summer, but none of them have played much. Does Ole want Beek? Does he want Telles? Pereira, Lingard etc, just get ri...
