What order would you all put united priorities I would put them as

1. A new Left back and a new contract for de gea.
2. A new Box to box cm,
3. A right sided winger
4. contract extensions for martial and herrera (to at the very least keep their value for next summer if jm doesn't fancy them)
4. Deep lying midfield playmaker (Carrick replacement)
5. A world class cb
6. Right back.

I've put right back last as young and valencia can share the right back slot for a year as long we get a quality lb plus hopefully tfm might prove to be good enough.

Outgoing aren't priorities but I can see quite a few going to make space in the squad and recoup cash. I think we all would be surprised to see Shaw darmian blind here next season but I wouldn't be surprised to also see mata leave especially if its Jose's plan to go to a 4-3-3
Those four could easily bring in 60mil which could be useful if the rumor that united are "only" willing to spend £150mil is true.

1.) 10 May 2018 11:31:10
1. New LB
2. New RB
3. Sell fringe/ unwanted players
4. New backup striker
5. New CM
6. New RM
7. New CB
8. Fellaini.

2.) 10 May 2018 11:57:55
New LB
New RB
New CM
New CB
At least 1 proper wide man who sticks wide and can get to a byline
Offload unwanted players/ players wanting away.

3.) 10 May 2018 12:06:18
1. New LB.
2. New RB.
3. New dominant centre-half.
4. Two new midfielders, goodbye Carrick good riddance the wig.
5. Sign-up De Gea.
6. Goodbye Smalling, Valencia, Darmian
7. Get Fosu-Mensa back. Get Tuanzebe back. Get Andreas Periera back.

4.) 10 May 2018 12:20:13
New rb lb cm×2 are priority. Imo. 'rw and cb are of less concern to me right now.
Agree with getting herrera and martial either tied down with contract or sold . This must be a priority.
Selling blind darmian shaw fellaini is just as important.

5.) 10 May 2018 12:35:01
1. New contract extension for Anthony Martial.

2.) new RW
3.) new CM
4.) use luke shaw as left back
5.) new manager is jose mourinho doesn't fancy anthony martial.

6.) 10 May 2018 12:57:30
Most want 4 plus signings. Apart from dsg who is keeping a tight grasp on the purse strings wanting only 2 and a new manager how much would your signings cost and therefore is it realistic? How much would fabinho, Sandro, sms and Kroos cost in this market?

7.) 10 May 2018 13:16:02
Now ken cb would be my biggest concern, smalling or Jones I would keep one as backup. Something doesn't seem to be right with baily.
I go to spurs and try to get Toby in.

8.) 10 May 2018 13:19:32
I honestly think if we got two world class full backs we wouldn’t need wingers and could mount a title challenge with the addition of Savic. Three players could transform us IMO.

9.) 10 May 2018 13:43:43
I hear you Leahy. Not sure what to make of the Bailly situation. Assuming all good there then I think him lindelof smalling rojo and 1 other would be ideal but i'd rather not have the other if its at the expense of a rb another season with valencia at rb is unthinkable. Maybe if we get a good lb young could do a good job at rb if the right player is not attainable.

10.) 10 May 2018 13:56:04
Bailly is young, a dip in form after an injury hit season isn’t the end of the world. Think he will be back to his best next year.

11.) 10 May 2018 14:17:46
To me the price is irrelevant. The manager will have identified 2 or 3 players for each position he wants filled. If he gets the right man for the right position I don't care if he costs 5m or 50m.
Lots of competition for the best talent.

12.) 10 May 2018 15:55:28
Ken - indeed as long the person is an improvement on what we have the price is irrelevant

the point I wanted to make and get peoples views on with regards to price was what would be a good and realistic transfer window.

Just to throw a cat amongst pigeons. Picture this we still had lvg (shudder) and he had our current squad so had lukaku instead of Rooney. Pogba Instead of schwine/ snide. Had sanchez Instead of depay plus had bailly. Would united be closer to city now than we are discuss?

1.) 23 Feb 2018 09:03:40
No one would notice. If we still had LVG all Man Utd fans would be following rugby by now.

Eric - When have united ever not paid over the odds?

I would say most people rate martial as a good player with potential to be even better. Wouldn't class that as overrated.

Even if you don't think he has potential to go to the next level he surely must be way down your list of united problems?
And surely he has been our best left sided attacker this season? So even if you think he hasn't been good enough often enough there's been plenty worse?

Your point about Jose I agree with. The board back him or sack him.

Anyways here's to next season quadruple.

If martial can't make it at united our coaching staff aren't fit for purpose. I agree martial is not a winger and should be playing as a striker eventually.

3-2-3-2 next seasons formation fits every one in perfectly martial upfront with lukaku. Sanchez on the left pogba middle. Matic holding with someone who will help him and stay put. Bailly can hold the hands of the 2 either side of him and tell them to stop doing shite things like score og's or dive. Sorted for 18/ 19 just need 3 signings a cb a holding midfielder akin to a 25 year old Carrick and a right-sided player akin to a Beckham with crossing ability or a right sided giggs.

In fairness to nev and scholes its quite hard to put a positive spin on united currently. There was signs of progress in 2017 but since Jan there's not been an awful lot to cheer about.

the united way isn't a formation or a tactic.

The united way in a word is to "believe"

Believe in youth, believe you can win at all times against anyone even if you are the under dogs, believe you can score a 95th minute equaliser or winner, believe your striker will control the ball so you make a run, believe you can thread a ball between 2 players so you don't pass it 5 yards sideways,

SAF didn't use the same tactics or formation every game for 26 years. SAF could be as pragmatic as anyone when it was needed.

But when SAF was pragmatic it was only normally in the big games and not against West ham in a dead rubber game and his pragmatism wasnt just how do I stop the opposition it was how do I stop them and exploit their weaknesses.

SAF didn't always get it right no one does but the intent was always there it was always positive.

He wouldn't be bashing rashford in public saying all the things he does wrong, he would be positive saying the things he does well but there are areas he can work on to be great even if SAF didn't believe it he would big players up make them believe that they can, not make them believe they can't by throwing them under the bus.

8-2 v arsenal, 6-2 fenerbahce, 7-1 v Blackburn, 9-0 v Ipswich, 8-1 v forest. Good job Jose won't make us watch such displays again what snoozers they were nothing like that on the edge of your seat 0-0 we had with West ham, real corcker.

Gds2 - I was picking a team to play against the op. So I couldn't have g nev. Was really stuck for alternatives. I would pick the same team as the op.

Ive never seen shay brennan so if he was better than valencia I will take people's word for it.
