Rumours today of an enquiry for Nainggolan. Brilliant, dynamic midfielder.

Thoughts?

Fresh!

1.) 03 May 2017 13:00:05
So hope its true and we can pursue and sign. Vidal type of player imo and could be the steel and guille in midfield to allow pogba and herrera to push on.


2.) 03 May 2017 13:08:57
I have I agree with you mate. He would be our Kante equivalent but with a goal threat as well.


3.) 03 May 2017 13:40:32
He's a beast. Be a superb signing.


4.) 03 May 2017 14:54:00
Good but would prefer Vidal or Kante.


5.) 03 May 2017 17:20:42
Don't think he is keen on a move to England. Apparently because cigs are too expensive.


6.) 04 May 2017 07:18:24
What is it with us and signing players with weird names.
Mkhitaryan, Schweinsteiger, Schneiderlin.
Nainggolan.
Maybe sign Bernardeschi too 😂.

{Ed001's Note - if you sign Nainggolan I would be very surprised. He smokes more than Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov and Jack Wilshere put together. He makes Andy Carroll look like a teetotal professional athlete. His partying on a nightly basis is legendary in the Rome clubs. It is very doubtful he will have much more than a couple of years left at the top level.

Added to that, he has no interest in leaving the city, he loves it in Rome. I would seriously have worries over a recruitment system that recommends him as a potential signing, rather than steers clear of him.

Oh and I do think he is an excellent player, now, but his lack of real fitness and desire to concentrate on his game would make it extremely difficult to adapt to English football and its much higher paced style.}

Hasn't taken the papers long to jump on the Fellaini to Sunderland story. £13 million apparently, seems a bit steep.

Also interest in taking Januzaj on loan. If there is one young attacker I'd like to see kick on this term it's Pereira so getting Januzaj out the way would be a good move.

Add to this the impending Pogba announcement and potential deal for Fabinho we look in good shape. However, I'd still like one more centre back to replace Rojo and see Blind/ Schweinsteiger leave.

Fresh!

1.) 26 Jul 2016 14:23:26
Schweinsteiger leaving over Blind would be better as he is older more injury prone and on vast wages. Although if he stays fit, the big if he could have an important season if utilised properly. That remains a big if.


2.) 26 Jul 2016 16:24:08
schweinsteiger has been an utter turd signing when you consider what he contributed, minutes played and wages. Blind for me was one of our top 4 or 5 performers last year no matter how you look at and i am bewildered why people think we should sell him. Ridiculous.


3.) 26 Jul 2016 17:00:12
Impending Pogba's announcement

Keep dreaming he's not coming and will end up at Madrid, he wouldn't keep stalling if he actually wanted to come.


4.) 26 Jul 2016 17:18:46
If we're paying Sunderland 13 mill for them to take Fellaini then that is step.

I also agree on Blind, he's a versatile utility player. Every squad needs one.


5.) 26 Jul 2016 19:51:57
I think Schweini was an expensive gamble that didn't work. His whole focus seemed to have been on getting fit for the Euros, he continued almost nothing last year.


6.) 26 Jul 2016 22:25:39
Why would anyone want to sell blind? Need a versatile player and he's our best one. And Pogba is far from imminent.


7.) 27 Jul 2016 17:19:44
I can see why Messi retired from International football. If Rojo plays at centre back for Argentina, then Messi will never win an International Trophy. Rojo is terrible.


 

 

01 Jul 2016 17:35:06
Rumours of Chinese interst in Rooney. A £60 million bid possible - that would be a dream situation. Get him off the books and suitably replace with a midfielder who specialises in that position rather than being shoe-horned.

Fresh!

1.) 01 Jul 2016 17:45:53
Just £60m? No thanks.


2.) 01 Jul 2016 18:05:03
This is a great chance to offload Rooney. On the back of a poor international performance no one will criticize United for offloading him. I like Rooney but for the sake of United he needs to go.
60M is a good deal keeping in mind that he earns 260K per week at United.


3.) 01 Jul 2016 18:05:09
Please please please let this be true.


4.) 01 Jul 2016 18:07:14
Lol Brendan.


5.) 01 Jul 2016 18:18:23
Rooney out for £60 million, Pogba in for £80 million would be rather nice. I'd then go and try for Draxler to be the new number 10.


6.) 01 Jul 2016 18:56:13
Micky is the new number 10.


7.) 01 Jul 2016 19:19:35
Zźzzzzzzzzz😴😴😴.


8.) 01 Jul 2016 19:32:41
I think it may be Rooney has bid £60m for his local Chinese restaurant!


9.) 01 Jul 2016 19:52:21
Number 10? Would that be Downing Street?


10.) 01 Jul 2016 20:50:55
Lol @ Brendan 😂😂😂😂😂.


11.) 02 Jul 2016 20:03:07
Lol @ beast 😂😂😂.


 

 

01 Jul 2016 13:20:13
Offer submitted for Lassana Diarra?

I know Mourinho was a fan at Chelsea and Madrid. Perhaps a player for certain big games and a cheaper alternative to Kante? If this happened it would suggest to me that Jose is happy with Schneiderlin and Carrick for the deeper role generally but in the big games may need more bite.

Fresh!

{Ed002's Note - As of Wednesday there was one offer but not from MU.}


1.) 01 Jul 2016 13:43:43
It's being reported that Giggs is set to leave Man Utd.
In my eye, s he ain't done bad out of it . Usually when managers are sacked, so are their back room staff.
Moyes sacked, Giggs not
Van Gaal sacked, Giggs not.
Fantastic servant to our club, and will always be a legend in my eye, s.
But he cannot dictate which job he wants, if not offered the managers job . There are many ex players from man Utd with better credentials to become great managers, Time for Giggs to go and make a managerial name for himself, Then one day maybe. He maybe approached for the big job . But I feel the reason he was not shown the door along with Moyes and Van Gaal, is the sentiment our board have for the man. Plus now he can concentrate on his other pastimes. wink. wink.


2.) 01 Jul 2016 13:44:33
Always liked diarra.


3.) 01 Jul 2016 13:43:30
Cheers for clearing that up Ed002, my heart sank when I read that from Fresh! Lol going from Pogba to Diarra in less than 12hrs

Is Kante still only of Interest to Arsenal and Chelsea Ed, if you don't mind me asking?

{Ed002's Note - Leicester's N'Golo Kante performances this season have attracted the attention of a number of sides not least Juventus, Chelsea, PSG and Arsenal. Although they will offer a new contract and would like to keep him, Leicester will be willing to sell on a couple of conditions and it will be Arsenal and Chelsea who will look to see if a deal can be brokered early in the transfer window - but it will be PSG that will be the most attractive of these clubs for the player and if they put an offer on the table that is acceptable to the club - and then they will have an advantage. Last summer Kante was on the verge of joining Marseille after rejecting the interest of West Ham and Rennes when Claudio Ranieri intervened, telling Caen their price would be met and taking the player on a guided tour of the Leicester City ground and training facilities. Anecdotally Shakhtar Donetsk approached Boulogne about taking Kante as a replacement for Fernandinho but Kante decided his future was in the French second division with Caen. Chelsea's interest dates from April 10 and they continued to watch him. His representative has said that Chelsea and PSG are his favoured destinations but with the change of manager at PSG that option may disappear.}


4.) 01 Jul 2016 13:48:19
And Kantes valuation wouldn't be anything much higher then the 30M, would you want to go for some one cheaper IF Kantes available?


 

 

03 Jun 2016 22:11:13
Sly reporting that we will sign Zlatan on a one year deal. He WILL be Mourinho's first signing.

What a fantastic start.

Fresh!

1.) 03 Jun 2016 22:38:33
Seen it to fresh. Really would be brilliant to have him wrapped up . He would put the fear of God into defences.


2.) 03 Jun 2016 23:41:11
Great signing and great business all round.
Best part is we turned down the chance for flash in the pan Vardy so Rashford can develop.


3.) 04 Jun 2016 00:36:02
Gianluca Di Marzio is in on it. At this point in time, the deal is as good as done imo.


4.) 04 Jun 2016 04:49:43
Yeah I believe he will be a great addition and we reportedly turned vardy down (which I'm glad about) as Mourinho doesn't want to hinder rashfords development. The man who doesn't play youth.


5.) 04 Jun 2016 09:01:54
Dave, it was very well worded in the media and I'm sure it was man utd/ mourinho camp that made sure sly sports etc reported it that way.


6.) 04 Jun 2016 09:29:57
I'd of been gutted to sign Vardy, he will be an expensive flop at Arsenal.

Only good playing on the shoulder in a counter attacking system. Not suited to them at all.

It's the going to be the biggest name coming into the League too which is always nice to boast.


7.) 04 Jun 2016 12:50:29
Totally agree with you fresh. Vardy is going to flop at arsenal. Vardy plays the counter attack style imo. don't think hell do well in england either. didn't understand why drinkwater did not get selected. Vardy needs him to play his potential i think.


8.) 04 Jun 2016 13:04:30
Fresh perhaps there will be a change of emphasis on moving the ball forward more quickly at arsenal.
I think he will do well there. He makes great runs and ozil makes great passes.


9.) 04 Jun 2016 14:37:18
I think vardy will score plenty for Arsenal. They've been crying out for a finisher for years and vardy is one. To say he can only play on the counter attack is ridiculous. But in glad we turned the chance to sign him down. Let's see what rashford can turn into! Ibra to take the burden of goals for the next 12 months and also help rashford's development.


10.) 04 Jun 2016 14:38:13
Am surprised that it is Arsenal going for Vardy. Are they going to change to a counter attacking side and hit teams on the break?
Sure glad we are not interested. Respect what he had achieved through hard work but he is not a world class CF imo.


11.) 04 Jun 2016 14:04:04
Vardy was offered to United? Would that have been because he wanted a move to OT or do you think United/ Mourinho wanted to be in the loop if Vardy became available?

Interesting to know how and why Vardy was offered to us. Even if Rashford wasn't coming through, I still wouldn't want Vardy!


12.) 06 Jun 2016 14:10:22
I really don't agree that zlatan will put the fear of god into prem defenders. He's 34 years old and has been playing in a really poor league let's not forget. Already had one really expensive flop in falcao and look how excited everyone was when he signed. He will sell a few shirts for sure but at his age I just can't see him setting premier league alight.

I see a lot of chatter about Mbappe here.

So here is a question for you. Had Martial been in that Monaco team, would he have not achieved the same? I think he would of, he has very similar talent and excellent finishing composure.

May be controversial, but would love to see what you think.

Fresh!

1.) 19 Jun 2017 21:35:14
No Martial doesn't have any character for me. Just seems disinterested all the time.
Fans really over rated him i feel as well in his first season, he was just lucky he was the best of a crap team.


2.) 19 Jun 2017 22:02:08
Martial is a fantastic dribbler and a decent finisher. However as good as he is with the ball imo he is very poor off the ball. That side of his game can improve with good coaching but most importantly with his will to learn, practise and put I the hours off hard work and dedication.

I'm not sure he will ever gel with jose they are complete opposites on the face of it.
Id love to loan him to barcelona for a year i think he would come beck a different player.


3.) 19 Jun 2017 22:12:20
Agree fresh, if martial was in last years monaco team there would be huge clamour for us to sign him for an exorbitant transfer fee.

Just needs a run of games next season and backing from the manager to showcase the talent we all know he has.


4.) 19 Jun 2017 22:20:26
Good point Fresh. I haven't seen enough of KM to compare them both but folk have said KM is of a higher standard than AM.

Fzz you cannot be serious? Give the lad a break. He has had one great year and one mixed year under two different regimes. You couldn't make this garbage up.


5.) 19 Jun 2017 22:26:24
Needs to be up top with Rashford. Those two together would destroy defences week in, week out.


6.) 19 Jun 2017 22:20:26

8.) 20 Jun 2017 03:51:13
I am reminded of Mick Jagger's response in the Rutles, the Beatles parody, when asked why the Rutles broke up. He said, "women". It seems to me that Martial is very immature in this respect and cannot as yet set aside his emotions, allowing them to dominate his mental state. He has more money than is good for kid of his age and this exacerbates the problem. He obviously has talent, the question is whether he can develop a Ronaldoesque commitment.


9.) 20 Jun 2017 04:49:47
Let's not forget his marriage broke up during the year as well. Not that it is any excuse but if some can give the almighty Pogba a settling in period let's give this lad a break for that.


10.) 20 Jun 2017 09:05:59
If martial was playing in that very good attack minded Monaco team people would be raving about him.
He would fit the Monaco team better than the united team at the moment.

{Ed001's Note - no they would not, because he would never get in the team.}


11.) 20 Jun 2017 09:15:11
Uniteds problem for the last 2 seasons is that we haven't set the team up to exploit our attackers more to protect our deficiencies. Get playing some front foot football where our wide attacker is not in touching distance of our fullback and we might start to see the goals return.


12.) 20 Jun 2017 10:00:41
I disagree ed, if he had been left to develop at Monaco I think he would of improved more as a player, just like a lot of the other Monaco players have .
Moved very young for a lot of money to a new league and country and has gone backwards a bit, this season I thought he was good last season Which can happen .
But he has all the attributes to do well in that Monaco team and would of been a good fit imo .


13.) 20 Jun 2017 10:00:41

But he has all the attributes to do well in that Monaco team and would of been a good fit imo .

{Ed001's Note - I am sure he would have improved, but an improved Martial is still nowhere near Mbappe or Lemar or Bernardo Silva. He is simply not that good. They would not have been the team they were this season if he had stayed, as they bought much better players with the money.}


14.) 20 Jun 2017 10:29:51
Different player than Silva it will be interesting to see how he does in the Epl tho, should suit pep tho.
I don't think Lemar is any better than martial to be honest .

Not sure how Monaco would of looked if they never had the martial cash, but martial playing at the top of his game (like a lot of the Monaco players this year ) in that team and set up would of looked great .
It seems there is a clamour to buy every Monaco player this summer .
Fans would be raving about him just like they where in his first season at united .
And just like they are about most of the Monaco players .

I think he would be a better fit in the Monaco team than united .

{Ed001's Note - I am sorry but you are deluded. Pointless conversation this. Martial was average in his first season but the deluded ones loved him for a goal against Liverpool, even though it showed nothing other than how poor a defender Skrtel was.}


15.) 20 Jun 2017 10:49:57
And the deluded ones as you put it would of raved about him if he was in that Monaco team .

The same way they are a raving about every other player in the team .
Which is all I put in my op.

{Ed001's Note - I give up, you are missing the point that they achieved something, not midtable mediocrity, the raving is because they performed brilliantly on the highest stage. Martial was a fringe player for United, Lemar was a first choice player for Monaco as they won Ligue 1 and made a huge impression in the Champions League. There is a huge difference, to those without delusions anyway. Martial would not get into that team to be raved about. What you put in your op was still bollox, no matter how many times you repeat yourself. All you are doing is proving my point that you are just biased.}


16.) 20 Jun 2017 11:16:55
I don't think I'm biased at all .
People rave about fabinho on here a player we must buy . I'm not that impressed to be honest .
But he is doing well in a good team, not sure he would do as well elsewhere .
People as you say raved about martial last season why would they not if he was at Monaco .
Players like Carillo and Germain played and scored for Monaco so for me martial would of got game time .

Monaco have been great this season and suddenly all there players ate world-class and everyone is raving about them . Not sure that will be the case next season .
There will be a new flavour of the month .


17.) 20 Jun 2017 11:38:11
Ed I think you have also got this one wrong and most of this page would agree. No doubt the Monaco boys were superb last season but AM does have plenty of talent.

{Ed001's Note - whatever. Pointless this, a few deluded fans think he is amazing, yet his manager disagrees and would happily replace him. I guess you lot all know more though.}


18.) 20 Jun 2017 12:35:47
Ill take Ed001s side on this like i said above, Martial is bang average. And this next season you will all be climbing on his back because of how crap he will be.


 

 

18 Jun 2017 20:06:52
Ed004, interesting reading your posts further down about how you are torn on Ronaldo. As we probably all know, he is my all time favourite player and I personally think he is the greatest.

I'd be intrigued to hear what shape the team would need to be to get the most out of him and who would be most complimentary in the team? For me I think Pogba and he would have a great time, Herrera's fantastic engine is key, Martial or Rashford from the left provides plenty of quality in terms of delivery and movement, Mkhitaryan and Mata right provides good delivery and more good movement. If we were to get him I think a defensive midfielder and potentially a new left back is still required, Matic/ Fabinho and Ghoulam/ Mendy.

Fresh!

{Ed004's Note - A defensive midfielder would be a priority if we signed him. I think a midfield of Mkhitaryan, Herrera, DM, Pogba would be very strong with Ronaldo and one of Martial or Rashford partnering Ronaldo up top/drifting wide to offer width. We could get away with just Lindelof, CDM and Ronaldo however I think we need to improve on our fullbacks as they aren't good enough going forward and they would be a necessity to get the most out of Ronaldo. This is all just theoretical as I can't see him signing. He will cost too much and Madrid won't sell him - they'll sort this issue out}


1.) 18 Jun 2017 20:41:31
That almost sounds like a narrow 4-3-1-2, is that what you would have in mind? Two up top, Pogba behind with Mkhitaryan, Herrera and Carrick/ DM?

{Ed004's Note - More of a narrow 442 with one of the strikers dropping into midfield when we are under serious pressure. Similar to Monacos set up with Pogba playing Silva role and Mkhitaryan playing Lemar role}


2.) 18 Jun 2017 20:54:32
Interesting, I don't think Jose has ever played that before unless he did at Inter? I expect Ronaldo coming in would see us play the 4-3-3 with him swapping with Martial/ Rashford on the left.

{Ed004's Note - It could just as easily be described as a 433 with Mkhitaryan on the right of the front 3 but coming inside more often than not. The width being provided by a fullback}


3.) 18 Jun 2017 21:14:54
Valencia would certainly provide that width, the left would be a problem. Blind and Darmian would be ineffective in this system, Shaw would be capable but is he trusted enough?

{Ed004's Note - Valencia and Shaw would be the only pair that could provide width effectively and efficiently enough however that wouldn't be enough for a whole season. We would want to have options similar to the way Spurs have. Therefore, a right back and left back would be needed in an ideal world (Semedo and Mendy)}


4.) 18 Jun 2017 21:22:11
I think we could get one of them and keep Young as an option. He's more effective than Blind.

{Ed004's Note - I think Young is a cert to leave}


5.) 18 Jun 2017 21:49:34
Can't see anyone paying him what we do.


6.) 18 Jun 2017 22:14:16
Boys, get a room.


7.) 19 Jun 2017 01:02:59
Thank you AJH!

Even Ed004 is getting tempted into picking out Ronaldo's new curtains and a nice Sphynx statue for the top of his stairs.

If everyone says it enough times it will surely happen, right?


 

 

16 Jun 2017 19:43:35
So, why has my post been removed? Please explain.

Fresh!

{Ed002's Note - I don't have to explain anything. It hasn't it was moved to the other page as it was largely nonsense.}


1.) 16 Jun 2017 20:03:37
it was "removed" because you are being fresh haha.


 

 

14 Jun 2017 19:55:12
Two questions for you all:

1) Why do you care how much we spend on any given player?
2) How many have seen Fabinho play more than twice? Do you just like him because his name is Fabinho and not Matic?

Fresh!

1.) 14 Jun 2017 20:16:26
I don't think people do care how much a player costs, generally speaking. There are of course exceptions, Morata being one of them.


2.) 14 Jun 2017 20:35:13
So they do care then wazza 😂.


3.) 14 Jun 2017 21:10:52
There is a finite budget, it matters how it is spent as we have a lot of areas of the team to improve. Surely you must have seen in recent years how much we have overspent on players, paying a 25-50% premium - this happens for many reasons, but one of the key ones is that we are known to be happy to spend big to send out a message that we are still a big player.

So it matters a lot, if we continue to overspend we will continue to get less for our money and if we keep on buying 'almost' players when our rivals are buying World Class players for less or the same money, then again it matters a great deal.

Every fan should care how much we spend, we can't control it, but it matters a lot short and long term!


4.) 14 Jun 2017 21:24:41
1. Paying over the odds tarnishes the reputation of our club, others will say we're 'buying the league'. Paying 70m for morata just make sure us look a joke.

2. Fabinho for me anyway, I've watched him throughout the season, along with defensive duties, he's quick, mobile and knows how to unlock a defence, on many occasions he's found that killer ball and he's chipped in with a fair few goals and assists.


5.) 14 Jun 2017 21:27:24
I don't care about the amount of money we spend. What I care about money wise is if we spent £100m plus on say Greizzman, when we could sign Sanchez and Aubameyang for not much more combined.


6.) 14 Jun 2017 21:49:16
Do they want to come tho stand?


7.) 14 Jun 2017 21:51:32
Stand, but we couldn't as either us or those players aren't interested. I love the arrogance that we could buy anyone.


8.) 14 Jun 2017 22:02:16
Just out of interest for all those complaining about the potential Morata fee which striker would you prefer and how much would they cost?


9.) 14 Jun 2017 22:17:31
Why would you not care? Lambasted for years by United fans were the likes of City and Chelsea spending excessively and pushing up prices for the English clubs now look at our fans "why should we care what we spend" {unreal}.

I hate the money in the game. It has changed a working mans sport into a sleazy rich mans oasis and it has turned the game to s***.

Every time I see Pogba walk onto the pitch or Mino Raiola fold his sweaty little hands I see a small country that could have been dragged out of poverty.

Get real with this "why should we care about money" chat. Disgusting.


10.) 14 Jun 2017 22:26:16
Danny
What can morata do that Sanchez can't? We can atleast test arsenal with a 60m bid seeing he's got a year left on his contract.


11.) 14 Jun 2017 23:11:08
Better strikers than morata may well cost more but giving Madrid 60to 70 million for their sub would be insane . They could then use the money with some of their own and end up using less of their own money to buy lewandowski or Kane than we spend on their sub . We are meant to be competing against them next season not giving them a winnning lottery ticket to improve . no deal with them is better than a bad deal.


12.) 14 Jun 2017 23:22:13
Maze,

Don't watch then. That's the modern game now, it's not pogba's fault that there is money in the game and people willing to pay it. You have to spend big to compete, if we don't we will finish mid table every season then you would be saying we aren't good enough and need to spend.


13.) 15 Jun 2017 00:49:06
Fresh, not arrogance we can sign anyone at all. Point is there are players out there of similar standard who are half the price. Who says either of them wouldn't be interested.


14.) 15 Jun 2017 01:22:44
GDS have I said that it is Pogba’s fault that he cost the same a small countries yearly revenue stream or are you again putting words in my mouth? It is the oligarchs, the sheikhs, the senseless billionaires, greedy little rats feeding off others and bureaucrat’s who fail to impose regulations that irk me. I would like nothing more than the entire system stripped back with salary caps imposed, cap on transfers and a complete overhaul of strategy at the top level.

I'm actually with you on this Maze, the money in the game is disgusting and I would love to see that change. sadly the current version of reality exists and United as a club need to function within it.

I agree with that HB. I just hate when folk say "don't watch it" just because you don't agree with the situation.

Dont watch it then.

Looks like Morata is first name in the door for £64m, that will be our number 9 sorted for many years to come. Not too big a name that he can't be rotated with Rashford but sufficiently big to excite. Very good move if it gets finalised next week. Delighted.

I've seen very little of him. Is he any good?


2.) 10 Jun 2017 09:33:04
AGreed Fresh. I'll be gutted if he ends up at Chelsea.

Delighted Fresh,

We go from one of the worlds hottest performers/ prospects in Greizmann to Real's benchwarmer?

I wonder why Marcus isn't given the reins? I wonder how much it would cost us to sigh Rashford if he'd broken into a lesser team a year and a half ago, and was now up for sale. 85 million, 100?
I'd be more than happy we break the transfer record for him, young, electric pace, strong and he seems to have his head firmly screwed on (from his interviews) #SIGNRASHFORD? WAIT? WHAT?

He signed a huge 6 year deal in November. This isn't about a new contract. It may be tax related or it may be that he has achieved everything at Madrid.

Surely an alternative.

That's every bit as good news as signing a new player. Herrera for me is the next captain.

I'd be delighted to have him. So dynamic, would compliment Pogba very well I think.

Best striker we could sign as he is proven in the league and settled in Manchester. Won't happen, but nice thought.

So you don't do anything tax efficient? Do you have an ISA for example?

These guys will have paid more Illinois in tax, yet aren't contributing?

Fresh!

{Ed007's Note - Man utd tax

Can't see anyone paying him what we do.

I think we could get one of them and keep Young as an option. He's more effective than Blind.

Fresh!

{Ed004's Note - I think Young is a cert to leave}

Valencia would certainly provide that width, the left would be a problem. Blind and Darmian would be ineffective in this system, Shaw would be capable but is he trusted enough?

Fresh!

{Ed004's Note - Valencia and Shaw would be the only pair that could provide width effectively and efficiently enough however that wouldn't be enough for a whole season. We would want to have options similar to the way Spurs have. Therefore, a right back and left back would be needed in an ideal world (Semedo and Mendy)}

Interesting, I don't think Jose has ever played that before unless he did at Inter? I expect Ronaldo coming in would see us play the 4-3-3 with him swapping with Martial/ Rashford on the left.

Fresh!

{Ed004's Note - It could just as easily be described as a 433 with Mkhitaryan on the right of the front 3 but coming inside more often than not. The width being provided by a fullback}
