So De Ligt is going to Juve. It's a disgrace we have allowed this to happen, we should have paid whatever it took to sign him, he's the best CB in Europe, possibly in world football.

All our players are stealing a living and we allow this to happen. Shocking.

{Ed002's Note - Why would he move to Manchester United - it came down to Juve or PSG.}

I'm going to guess that you're taking the mick here AJH.

22 Jun 2019 17:40:13
Yep totally agree AJH, even if it came to giving him equity in the club, we really should have pushed the boat out.

23 Jun 2019 01:39:54
ajh is just fishing.

Afternoon guys,

So realistically what would a good transfer window look like come the 8th August!

I would be interested to hear everybody's opinion.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2019 12:58:22
Afternoon DL1B
and all.

What would be good- degea away with oblak in.
Defence; awb purchase or Cancaelo as part of pogba deal. Skriniar as part of lukaku deal, and losing rojo to whoever, darmian and Bailly (arsenal? )
Mid: ndombele in, madison, fernandes in. pogba away to juve as above,
upfront: sanchez to anyone who'll take him, lukaku to inter.

AWB/ cancelo Lindlehof Skriniar Shaw

Fernandes Maddison

james rashford Martial

What I thin more likely:
Degea stays big contract
Late punt toby
Lose lukaku late in the window and don't get a deal with player and don't sign a target.

24 Jun 2019 06:34:43
AWB, Lindelof, Dias, Shaw
Saul, Ndombele, Bruno
Pepe, Rash, James.

21 Jun 2019 19:09:54
Martial and mctominay posting videos on their social media of them working out on their holidays.

Good to see them showing good “attitude” and is most certainly in contrast to the “teenage sensation” jesse lingard.

Agree4 Disagree0

21 Jun 2019 21:18:22
Yeah I saw that too. Good to see Martial in training this early.

22 Jun 2019 01:06:38
Big season for martial. Let's hope he starts well and his confidence grows.

22 Jun 2019 09:13:07
Mctominay is determined to get in that CM. Good player, I hope he does.

22 Jun 2019 10:44:03
They posted videos on social media? I hope the police have been called, this is getting out of hand now.

23 Jun 2019 18:01:04

21 Jun 2019 11:58:29
A very minor point, but whilst we are restructuring can we have a go at the shirt numbers too?

Lindelöf and Bailly having 2 and 3 is awful. Lindelöf should get the 5 and Wan-Bissaka the 2. Give Martial the #9 back too when Lukaku leaves.

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Jun 2019 12:31:53
I've no interest in what number a player wears.

21 Jun 2019 15:51:55
Makes no difference once toy cross the white line.
I used to like wearing no11 but never played any better or worse in any other number.

21 Jun 2019 16:26:18
I agree Fresh. I think a Number represents an identity of a player profile. i believe 2-3 for full backs, 4-5 for first choice CBs, 6-8 for Main Midfielders, 7-11 for wingers,9-10 for forwards. And so on.

21 Jun 2019 17:23:30
I agree with Fresh. But I have terrible CDO.

21 Jun 2019 22:33:49
Wazza LOL.

22 Jun 2019 01:35:27
I guess were lucky that numbers on jerseys are not reflected by ratings then also.

I think the first team should be 1 to 11 and subs 12 to 18

Then players can earn the first team numbers

And before anyone reminds us! that it costs money to rename and number Jerseys?

They have invented peel and sticks now that are very durable.

22 Jun 2019 06:47:14
Youd think it makes no difference but Anthony Martial seemed to throw his toys out the pram once 9 was issued to zlatan.

22 Jun 2019 09:27:36
I think people need to more out of the 90s, no team has had their first choice being 1-11 for about 20 years.

22 Jun 2019 10:36:45
Yeah, Keane was never first choice as he wore the number 16, nor was Scholes with 18 on his back.

22 Jun 2019 12:36:36
That was their IQ Shappy.

21 Jun 2019 04:40:30
one of today's papers are claiming ole's summer rebuild is being held up as clubs are getting frustrated with our low bids that keep being offered due to ole only having 100 million to spend.
So the asking price for PP has gone down.

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Jun 2019 07:24:28
Combined £50m for AWB.
£40m + a player for Diop.

I don’t know how true these figures are, but they don’t look low for players with 1 year top level experience.

21 Jun 2019 10:23:29
You need to stop reading the papers if you believe this nonsense.

21 Jun 2019 12:08:36
we probably need to get rid of some payers first.

20 Jun 2019 23:10:41
Has our interest in koulibaly ended? Really hoped we'd sign him.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2019 01:29:11
I think he’s simpler to expensive when we have so many areas of the team we need to improve. If we were in a position (like Liverpool recently) where we just needed a CB, he would be the obvious choice. I just don’t think we can blow maybe 40% of our transfer budget on 1 player.

21 Jun 2019 07:53:56
CB and RB are the glaring issues!

21 Jun 2019 11:11:34

19 Jun 2019 13:32:07
Afternoon. It seems every day I read something about Ed Woodward and it just leaves me scratching my head in disbelief that this bloke is running the club and I have to ask the question, does anyone know or has anyone heard about what the feelings in and around the club are about him? I assume the Glazer's like him as he, I can only assume saves them money and brings money in through sponsorship but what about any other top brass, Sir Bobby, Sir Alex etc surely it is clear to anyone with an ounce of sense the guy is a clown and not fit to run a club of any stature let alone United!

Agree4 Disagree4

21 Jun 2019 13:23:11
He’s a financial guy, he’s brought in some pretty decent commercial contracts. I would however caveat that with that fact Manchester United is a global brand and so is an easy sell. I’ve worked in senior positions at numerous blue chips, this is a fairly common issue in business where the detail and nuances of an industry aren’t fully understood by the leadership. In my experience most have recognised their potential issue fairly quickly and rectified it by appointing trusted operation advisors or COO’s. I would suggest a strong appointment as DoF would work for Woodward on servers layers as it would deflect accountability of and footballing decisions in the short to mid term, whilst allowing him to concentrate on his core skills of commercialisation and finance.

Woodward’s position, one would imagine will be at risk if the OGS appointment fails as it will start hitting the club in the one place that will make the owners listen, their wallets.

19 Jun 2019 00:38:55
So sick of the name Pogba already.

Agree2 Disagree0

18 Jun 2019 22:17:06
I'm not one to judge a player on one game but Wan Bissaka has had an absolute stinker for the u21's tonight.

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Jun 2019 23:36:46
He sure did. Henderson had a great game.
Awb looked nervous. I've seen him play a lot better than that.

19 Jun 2019 00:03:13
Overhyped. Overrated. Who else is in for him?

19 Jun 2019 00:53:52
😂 oh the irony.

19 Jun 2019 06:07:02
Players aren't robots I'm pretty sure they all have bad games.

19 Jun 2019 06:31:29
Yeah I thought Henderson looked very good Ken.

Haha Maze, I’m not saying he’s a bad player at all. Over priced, yes most definitely. Even before that performance last night.

19 Jun 2019 08:15:31
He was one of the best full backs in the prem last year.

How old is he again?

He would walk into our team.

19 Jun 2019 09:23:16
2toms I am saying he is not a great player and would not get in any of our rivals teams.

19 Jun 2019 19:40:44
You could only really make a case for taa or bellerin (when fit) being ahead of him.

19 Jun 2019 21:57:49
Azpi at Chelsea. Walker, trippier?

19 Jun 2019 22:06:40
Walker is a terrible defender if it wasnt for his pace he wouodnt even be a footballer he is dreadful even going forward he is garbage

Azpi is better as a centre back and isn't the same player he was a few years ago and tripper is decent. but then again he is 29 in August.

19 Jun 2019 23:07:36
Struggling here Bolger. If Walker is terrible (as you say) why didn’t City peak goals through the right channel constantly last season? Why has he collected numerous silverware and just signed an extension with the PL champions who United are miles off catching and will likely be first choice at City next year also? Please explain in detail.

Azpi is a decent CB but is also leaps and bounds above Bissaka at RB. I mean he has only been playing at RB for the majority of his career. Trippier is 29 in the prime of his career, dropped off a little last season but has been great over the past few years (also noting a wonderful WC in Russia last year) and is again legs, arms, toes and fingers above Bissaka at this point in time.

20 Jun 2019 14:37:50
I agree with Ken and 2toms Awb had a stinker .

20 Jun 2019 18:38:07
Azpi isn't great going forward, walker isn't great defensively and trippier just isn't great at all.

20 Jun 2019 19:07:37
All 3 are good full backs sepp. they all fit their team plans pretty well.
Awb has a higher ceiling than all 3. He is not there yet imo.
A very strong defender very good in the tackle.
We can't say he is prem proven after 30 games. How good did januzai look after 30 games? But he really does look the real deal.
The fee is not in his control and is crazy but that's the market and a deal will be done.
Him and dalot both have great potential and i'd be very happy with those 2 as options for rb thing into next seaon.

18 Jun 2019 22:16:34
Am I the only one thinking we are only buying players once we sell? Pogba, Lukaku, De Gea all potentially off. That would create what £200m? Ideally. I think there's stacks of players of potential interest. Ideally that includes Wan-Bissaka, De Ligt and Fernandes and a De Gea replacement. I just don't see the Glazers having any further significant net investment if they are genuinely looking to sell the club.

Very happy to be corrected if the Eds or fellow posters can offer their pearls of wisdom!

Agree1 Disagree1

18 Jun 2019 23:07:41
United have got the money its using the money to buy the right players.

We spent what 50 million on fred and 20 odd million on dalot.

We have the funds that's not the issue.

19 Jun 2019 04:48:55
We will spend money, unfortunately too often we spend it badly.
