Re: The coming season

If Moyes hadn't gone for Fellaini, we probably wouldn't have signed anybody -- I think it was the only thing he could do to try to salvage the situation. Ah, you're forgetting that Fellaini wasn't a name sprung on us at the last second like so many others; it was someone Moyes wanted all along. He ...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Fellaini said: "I'm happy with my season, although I didn't play in my best position. I'm not a No10. David Moyes predicts my future as a defensive midfielder, but due to a lack of offensive power, he plays me up front. In the future I want to play as a 6 or an 8. From there I can create danger and ...

Re: Predictions

We strolled to the championship last year Our rivals have strengthened, yes, but it will take time to gel as Tottenham's and Man City's defeats has shown We havent really lost anyone of note, and arguably have strengthened our weakest area Plus we still have January transfer window if we really nee...

FFS. Fellaini is a defensive midfielder.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Kagawa's a better player than Ozil. Not only was he getting sidelined at Madrid, I predict he will not be a first choice player for Germany in Brazil. He does certain things extremely well but his liabilities make him a luxury player that few clubs or leagues will indulge.

Re: The coming season

Moyes isn't completely blameless for our summer (he shouldn't have gone for Fellaini) and the jury's out for me as to whether he will succeed at United but he inherited a shit situation and he hasn't been backed. Months before Fergie retired, people were talking about a seamless transition - and no...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Both were seriously overpriced, but Fellaini is a better signing than Ozil. Fellaini adds to a vital area of the pitch where United have practically no players, and he brings attributes that we currently lack there -- strength, strongest tackler in the league, good ball-carrying. Ozil is a better ov...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I can understand not buying Ozil since we already have Kagawa, who plays almost exactly the same way, and we're not using him. But whether it's Ozil, Modric, or whoever the fuck, we're not buying top drawer talent that's for sure. After year after year of no midfield signings, we're about to splunk ...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Bilbao benched Herrera for their game against Real, which they lost 3-1. So either their own manager doesn't rate him or they want to do the deal.
