Sat here on a beach in Spain and all the talk is of Eric Abidal quoting Cryuff, "He who hesitates for Barcelona is no use to us". Asked a few locals and apparently this was in reference to de Ligt who is now off the PSG.

ahh the great history de Ligt talked or must've been about PSG 👀.


2.) 12 Jun 2019 14:51:51
He's an idiot if he goes there. I never expected him to come to United. But PSG over Barca? Unfathomable.


3.) 12 Jun 2019 15:13:29
How is it unfathomable? Its been widely reported there were three main issues: playing time, financial package and champions league football.

PSG are the only club that can offer all three to him.


4.) 12 Jun 2019 16:22:57
Because he'd be on minimum wage at Barca?

He'd have champions league and regular game time there as well.


5.) 12 Jun 2019 16:32:21
PSG makes a lot of sense when you consider his agent. Mino is known for regularly moving his clients around, obviously for him that makes sense as he makes money from players moving.

That's why it makes no sense for him to move a player who is 19 to either Barcelona or Real Madrid. As players don't move from those clubs until their career is on the downward trajectory.

Which with a player such as De Ligt at 19 isn't likely to be for 10 years at least. For Riola it makes much more sense to park De Ligt at another club such as PSG, one of the English clubs or Juventus for the next 3-4 years then move him to one of the big Spanish clubs.

Or am I too cynical?

It always amazes me that people buy into the Barcelona mythos that when players reject them it’s down to some moral deficiency on part of the player.

DSG is completely right. Any sensible player would be looking to get the best deal for them. If he’s motivated by maximising his wage, so what? Isn’t that what most of us do when job hunting?


7.) 12 Jun 2019 18:11:38
No he won't be on minimum wage at Barcelona but he will most likely be on the maximum wage available at psg. Add in champions league and guaranteed playing time. Therefore it is not unfathomable mort.

It's funny to hear the Barcelona fans here, complaining about the clubs transfer policy, saying it's a shambles and other clubs are so much better organised. Nice to know we are not alone.

I wonder if there is much of a difference in your lifestyle between earning £10 million and £15 million a year?

Anybody know anything about that?

So Jose has gone. didn't expect that.

Great birthday present. I think Zidane will be brought in TIL the end of the season to have a look then a decision will be made. Please no long contracts. He had to go. No tears shed here.

I imagine there are those that will berate the fact we have not signed at CB, personally I'm not that bothered, last season we had the second best defence.
The issues up front and not scoring enough goals, Jose has to work on this area, push Pogba forward and get the front four working as a unit.
On paper it is a relatively winnable start, if we can get some momentum going then I'm hopeful of a good year.

1.) 09 Aug 2018 17:07:32
We had the second best defence because

1) we have the best keeper in the world thankfully
2) we play with 6 at the back most the time because were terrified of conceding, thus our non existent attack

Reason being our defence is dross.


2.) 09 Aug 2018 17:36:57
I have no problem with six in defence, Jose needs to get the front four working, which considering you have options of Lukakua, Sanchez, Lingard, Rashford, Martial, Pogba and Mata should be achievable.

Regardless of transfer activity over the next few days, top four is probably the best I can see for the coming year.
At some point I'm sure we are all expecting the inevitable Jose meltdown, maybe even before Christmas, with the usual rumours of dressing room unrest, we have seen it all before.
Anyway my prediction for the coming season is more activity off the pitch than on it, let's hope I'm wrong.

The only activity I want is new owners and a new fearless manager. We can all dream.


2.) 06 Aug 2018 10:09:10
Well the next manager will most likely be Wenger. Plays youth, signs cheap unknowns, works on a budget, experienced premier league manager and capable of hitting4th place. Ticks all the boxes.


3.) 06 Aug 2018 12:03:34
Plays very nice football though which what we all want right?

Good to see fan favourite Anderson signing for Adana Demirspor. Cue the KFC jokes.

Maybe he is coming as interim player manager. Really surprised at the choice, but hoping he brings back some of the joy of watching football which we have lost over the last 6 months.

It's not Ole, his tenure at Cardiff was not great. Apparently it will be an ex-player. Steve Bruce anyone.

Do you think they have done a cost analysis, Sacking Jose early v missing out on Champions League, which would lose more money?

Good article this morning on the BBC website about why we didn't sign our targeted CB.
If the main defensive target was Varne and we couldn't get him, what is the point in signing anyone for the sake of signing someone, for me I would be happy to go with Bailly and Jones as the defensive partnership for the year.

Lots of winnable games at the beginning of our fixture list. A few good results and the mood will soon change.

Players reflect their manager's attitude, maybe José calling out players in public rather than behind closed doors is where this all stems from. Are the players really playing for him anymore?

His team, his tactics. José's third year now, are we progressing?
For me the turning point has been the Sanchez signing, someone to take us to the next level and challenge, something we all applauded at the time but with hindsight we will probably look back on as a mistake.
Jose complains about not having defensive reinforcements, but our issue for the last 6 years has simply been not scoring enough goals, we have not scored more than 70 goals in a season since 2012/ 13.

Can't blame the owners, they have provided the funds and let the manager do what he wants as far as we know.
With every manager that comes in Fergie's shoes get that little bit bigger.

Mourinho has had ample time and funds to show progress, are we better than last year? Replacing José is not an option at the moment, but come the summer the owners should look at who is available.
