It sounds like the Morata deal is happening. I think he will be a good addition. He is young, mobile, technical, intelligent, has good size, and has performed well at both Juventus and Real Madrid.

zidaniel

1.) 09 Jun 2017 13:55:06
225 k a week being reported. saying belotti asked for griezeman salary of 300k . maybe tabloid nonsense.

Timing of the Morata news if confirmed might take some of the sting out of Ibra moving on for some people if its announced -

Dont know much about Morata or Belotti to be honest.

My choice would be amyadingdong but that's not likely, only as I've been impressed with him each time I've seen him -some say he is a flaky character though.


2.) 09 Jun 2017 14:09:59
I seem to get the feeling we're in for both of them not just one or the other.

Has Morata been known to play out wide or is he just a central striker?


3.) 09 Jun 2017 14:13:13
Is there a sting from Zlatan moving on? He is injured until the new year and slowed down our attack all year, he had a good season for us goals wise but we would be absolutely mad to give him a new deal IMO.


4.) 09 Jun 2017 14:23:52
Dave, I would love it if United went for both the players, but I don't think that would happen. What makes you say that?


5.) 09 Jun 2017 14:43:32
Hi. not been on here for ages, Still a few that I recognise.
I just wanted to agree with GDS2.
I can't fault Ibra for the season he had but I felt he did slow our attack down a lot of the time.
I also think he's a very big personality in the dressing room and noticed that he was pulling rank over players when taking free kicks and penalties.
He's not going to be fit until the new year and it makes no sense paying someone 300 grand a week for the remainder of that season. Definitely time to move him on now
In my opinion we need a top centre forward, a top central defensive midfielder so the shackles can be taken off Pogba and let him get forward more.
We also need another centre back.


6.) 09 Jun 2017 14:47:41
Ragtav,

Nothing really just a feeling. There's some reports stating Morata is close and ed002 has said we have a 3rd party involved in trying to secure a deal for belotti

So 2+2 = 5 probably 😂.


7.) 09 Jun 2017 14:52:46
No sting from me GDS2,but I saw more than a few on here yesterday saying he still had a part to play - i say thank you and get him off wage bill.


8.) 09 Jun 2017 14:59:53
I'm not one for worrying about the money the club spends but around £70m for a player who was worth £26m only 12 months ago and has sat on the bench since, seems ridiculous.


9.) 09 Jun 2017 15:12:19
Makes sense to go for 2 forwards with Ibra leaving. A replacement for him plus one more.


10.) 09 Jun 2017 15:20:12
Hahah! Yeah. I thought maybe you knew something that none of us did.

I hope we do get them both. It would be quite a solid front line.

Love the math! :D.


11.) 09 Jun 2017 15:25:32
I've seen a few reports that we're in for both. Seems a bit odd but with Zlatan and Rooney both seemingly off, it would do no harm in having 2 new forwards come in.
Belotti is an out and out no.9 but Morata has a bit more to his game so not identical signings.


12.) 09 Jun 2017 16:48:47
I'd prefer the one. Simply because I believe it means more playing time for rash. Unless Jose is looking for a different formation where both belotti and morata play together. But I can't see that happening.


13.) 09 Jun 2017 17:52:30
Welcome back Simo, love when some familiar names from the past come back on here, hope all is well. I remember we didn't agree on much in the past, a rest must have done you some good ;)

I wouldn't mind if we signed both Belotti and Morata if that is even an option. If we are losing zlatan and Rooney then no reason why we don't replace both of them and they are 2 players who could be brilliant for us.

Wasn't many of us moaning in 99 when we had Yorke, Cole, Solskjaer and Teddy, I wouldn't be moaning if our striker options turned out to be Morata, Rashford, Belotti and Martial, we have plenty of games to rotate. Not saying it will happen but it wouldn't annoy me if it did. Obviously not at the expense of other positions we need though, so I am guessing it will be one or the other.


14.) 09 Jun 2017 17:53:36
Welcome back simo👍
Id rather sign morata and buy greizman in jan.


15.) 09 Jun 2017 18:48:23
i wouldn't rule out a short contract if Zlatan can get fit by January 2018.


16.) 09 Jun 2017 18:54:31
Zidaniel, he has good size. 🙄.


17.) 09 Jun 2017 19:12:50
GDS2
Exactly right the more we have to choose from the better. Rashford started lots of games last season and his goal return was not amazing.
Lots of potential and talent but we can't wait forever for him to be the player we require.

I remember once somebody saying what a great player Cleverly will become! There are many more to add to that list but no point as we all know who they are.
Just saying that Manchester United should not be sitting by hoping youngsters come good while other teams take the top players on and win the awards.

For the record i love Rashford and would be absolutley delighted if he scored a shitload next season and became a top player.


18.) 09 Jun 2017 21:50:43
Get them both in and switch to a diamond 442. Enough game time for them and Rashford to play upfront.


19.) 10 Jun 2017 12:05:45
To be honest, it is not surprising that Man United released Zlatan at the moment. However, when he is fit, I would not rule out Zlatan getting a contract like Valdes.


20.) 11 Jun 2017 12:25:56
MCR

Morata was worth a lot more than 25 mil mate even last year and you confuse a buyback clause to market value. He is mobile, really smart with his runs, good finisher and can set up goals and 24 years old. In this market very hard to get strikers like that. hope we get it done early.

Lukaku at 90 is what i don't want us to ever go near. Hope Chelsea buys him as it is a poor mans version of Costa at double the price :)


 

 

13 May 2017 21:16:45
Ronnie, it looks like your man Youri Tlielemans will be signing for Monaco. He was impressive in our home and away vs Anderlecht. Hope you will be alright ;)

zidaniel

1.) 15 May 2017 12:37:59
Zidaniel,

I know, I saw the news and was gutted!

Prob best for him though as the prem league would to tough ever though he is superb!

Few years, Monaco will make a pretty buck on him!


2.) 15 May 2017 23:19:11
Yes Ronnie, Tielemans did impress in our Europa games. He was skillful and confident, unafraid of the occasion. Maybe this will turn out well for us at Man Utd, if Monaco now may be more open to selling Fabinho.


 

 

02 Jun 2016 02:26:30
Reports are out that we are in contact with Bordeaux over their young winger Adam Ounas. He looks very talented from what I have seen, 19 yr old left-footer, nice touch on the ball, very good dribbler and passer. I like the looks of him as a prospect for the right wing.

zidaniel

1.) 02 Jun 2016 17:34:03
I had been watching the lad on tv, and thought, this lads got something here? The only thing I would say, he can be thrown off ball alittle too easily and would need some balking yo to do? Mind you, at 19, plenty of time?


2.) 02 Jun 2016 19:37:46
He seems a decent talent Ronnie but we already have lots of young potential in the team mate. We need a couple of reliable experienced players up there.


3.) 03 Jun 2016 13:43:35
I agree Redfaith but maybe I'm a dreamer in the fact that buy the right players, if they are good enough, they will gel!

Bringing in these players NOW will lay foundations for years to come?


 

 

15 Aug 2014 12:58:35
Cuadrado is left out of the Fiorentina squad for tomorrow's friendly against Real Madrid. So surely he is leaving, now the question is where? I am not convinced that Barca have moved on, but still hopeful he will join us.

zidaniel

{Ed002's Note - Don't be surprised by another option being available to him.}


1.) Ed, who is the other option? Is it BM again? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It will unfurl in the coming days and is dependent on a meeting in Warsaw this evening, and a couple of other players departing the club. It is going to be a busy couple of weeks.}


2.) I think the other team is Barca?


3.) Why in Warsaw Ed? Obv its nothing to do with Man Utd.

Stu

{Ed002's Note - That is where the people involved will be. If they were to be in Paris, then the meeting would be in Paris. If they were in Moscow, then the meeting would be in Moscow. You really should be able to come to grips with this without my help.}


4.) ED2. Do you think Beaky was right in the post I sent earlier (tuesday morn)?

{Ed002's Note - Speaking in tongues doesn't help. Due to circumstances and Abdelaziz Barrada, I recall my plans were disrupted and Ispent that morning morning in a business lounge at Vigo airport, then went to Barcelona, where I sat in the BA Executive lounge until I could get a flight back to England. I have no idea what you were up to.}


5.) Okay eds won't ask who the other team is.

However when you said depends on players leaving the club, did you mean Man Utd? or the unnamed club?

Cheers!

{Ed002's Note - Nothing to do with MU.}


6.) MS, there's another club that the Ed is referring to. I could be drastically wrong here, but I think the Schurrle out, Cuadrado in rumours may have had some legs.


7.) Chelsea need to release a foreigner, not swap one. That's why schurle may leave.


8.) I heard the other club involved is Chelsea would be just like them to sign him just because we want him haha they did it to spurs last year


9.) We're not going to sign anyone are we. We take far too long and leave it too late. Biggest club in the world? Not on the pitch by a long way.


10.) Chelsea


11.) I think, Sydney, that Chelsea need to loose one foreign player so its probably not them.
Could be Real Madrid if they manage to get PSG to buy Di Marie.


12.) The meeting is in Warsaw because Fiorentina play Real Madrid there tomorrow. Expect it will be Chelski or BM meeting with them.


13.) Syd, I think you're spot on there.

Atletico are going to have some team next year.

Especially if they can get reus.

Their Phoenix may not have finished rising just yet.


14.) I think the Ed meant that Real Madrid is the other team, considering they will play Fiorentina in Warsaw.


15.) Suspect other club will be PSG who have to juggle players around to conform to FFP.

Wonder who would be leaving PSG though? Cavani?


16.) It's Chelsea and unlike us they do not faf about they get the job done.
It's ok saying Chelsea pinch all the players that we are after but this transfer should of been done and dusted by now if LVG wanted him that badly.
Man United only have themselves to blame if they loose out on another target.
I wonder what will happen to Woodward if he fails again this transfer window, surely this can't go on?


17.) I don't think you need to worry about Chelsea with this one. There is absolutely NO way I see Schurrle leaving. He's a fan favourite and Mourinho likes him very much as well. So don't worry about us ;-)


18.) Looking at RM's right-side reinforcements and there isn't really any. Just Ramos that I can see so I guess RM could be interested in Cuadrado.


19.) Simmo, it looked like MU were making big strides trying to sign Cuadrado, but then Di Maria became available again. MU are trying to do a deal for Di Maria, so I guess the Cuadrado talks have stalled somewhat? What would be frustrating is if we end up missing out on both when we could have had potentially Cuadrado signed by now.


20.) 15 Aug 2014 17:18:42
Rather have cuadrado. Surely woody should be moved back to commercial and we bring in a dedicated transfer person.


21.) Surely an option could be that he stays at Fiorentina, no?


22.) Cuadrado is suspended that's why he's out of the squad

Coaching question for you all regarding defenders: if a player has all the natural tools and technical ability, what separates him from failure and success?

I will use our players as examples. Smalling has good physical qualities, size and speed, limited confidence on the ball, but his critical flaw is his concentration lapses (not to mention his excessive holding, which someday will catch up to him) . Jones has excellent physical qualities, tough, brave, not bad with the ball, but he stands out for his moments of panic.

Blind was always excellent technically, but too slow. Rojo has a great battling mentality, but just isn't that good. Darmian could mark and tackle well, but offered little going forward.

Bailly has it all, speed, athleticism, confidence as a defender, confidence with the ball, and a little swagger, though he usually gives you at least one unpredictable moment per game. At least it's usually something he does with the ball, rather than an idiotic slide tackle, like Smalling and Jones have done over the years.

I am thinking now of our young defenders with good potential - Lindelof, who has shown a lot, and especially Fosu-Mensah and Tuanzebe, and soon enough, we will see about Dalot. Lindelof seems very good on the ball, might lack a bit of physicality, but he just needs games. Tuanzebe looked awfully composed for such a young player, and I would love to see him get a chance to prove himself. Fosu-Mensah has great physical tools, looked positionally suspect at times. But cannot these mistakes be coached out of a player? I would like to think yes, as long as a defender shows he can maintain concentration and composure in the big moments and throughout the 90 minutes.

There is a lot to it for what it takes to succeed as a defender. You need to win physical battles, one on one battles vs the dribblers, make good decisions with the ball, and stay switched on all the time. It's something we do not often discuss on here. And related to our transfer seasons, can one of our own grow into becoming a great defender to partner Bailly or must we buy again?

zidaniel

1.) 14 Jun 2018 16:33:38
My grandad always used to say to me that what defines a great player over a good player is what's between the ears. How quick the player can Process what is going on in front of him which is why some players can look like they are either always in the right place or have more time on the ball than others.
As hated and awful a human being as he is I think this is why someone like John Terry was so good for do long.
It's why for me Smalling sometimes looks like a rabbit caught in the headlights even though physically and ability he has all that is needed to be a top defender.


2.) 14 Jun 2018 18:26:12
John Terry was awful. Poor positioning and stupid decisions. He was just good at last ditch recovery tackles which is why people think he's good. Often he was recovering his own mistake. The game against Sweden as an example.


3.) 14 Jun 2018 18:38:43
John Terry was a legend, what a slip!


4.) 14 Jun 2018 18:44:11
Someone has to take Smalling to one side and smack that stupid holding and wrestling out of him.

I watched the 2nd divison play off at wembley ref gave every holding/ wrestling decision -including a penalty and he looked at the defender when he blew the whistle for the penalty as if to say "you give me no choice moron " Will cost us big time if he doesn't cut it out.


5.) 14 Jun 2018 20:09:44
Will never smack it out of him because it always happens after he is caught flat footed m, This is mainly due to the fact that the attacker knows his job is to get a head on the ball and CS need 1.1 secs for his brain to register the projected area of the ball coming and that that he has to clear the lines

By which time the attacker has already got 2 steps on him hence the pulling of shirts etc.


6.) 14 Jun 2018 20:10:49
If refs ever gain consistency then yes it will cost us.

All our defenders have issues. Smalling can't concentrate, jones is made of glass, rojo is better in a 3 than a 2, blind is slow. Should be moving a couple of these on.


7.) 14 Jun 2018 21:39:51
All players have strengths and weaknesses, no player is great at everything. Rio had lapses in concentration, Vidic was limited on the ball.

The difference between the weaknesses in defenders and other players is that when theit weaknesses are exposed it often leads to a goalscoring opportunity. Or at least a heart in mouth moment.

The trick to having great defenders is having a great defensive unit. A system where all the defenders work together to cover for eachother which limits how often their weaknesses are exposed making them look like better players.

Vidic wasn't a great passer out from the back, but he hardly ever had to do is as Rio was alongside him spraying balls around.

When Rio had a lapse in concentration Vidic would cover.

Smalling lacks the technical ability that he would have gained if he had been coached by an academy coach during his formative years.

All defenders have areas of weakness, when you sign a new defender it is more important than any other position as to how their talents and abilities will sync in with the current players.

We are missing an organiser at the back, someone to bring it altogether. That is why I have such high hopes for Tuanzebe. Not only is he a talented defender, with good pace and physicality and composure. He is a talker, he communicates and organises his fellow defenders. He is exactly the kind of defender we need, he just hasn't got the experience. But he'll never have it if we don't play him.


8.) 15 Jun 2018 00:12:54
Spot on about Tuanzebe shappy. I would love to see him integrated this season as he has all the attributes to be our cb for years to come.


9.) 15 Jun 2018 01:17:32
Good to hear about Tuanzebe. Not being local like some of you, I didn't know that he was a talker and organizer. The more we see of him, the better.


 

 

13 Jun 2018 14:01:14
Latest rumours have us in for Verratti. He would make a tremendous addition and give us something different - he could run a game with his passing, set the tempo, give some fire and leadership in the middle of the park.

zidaniel

1.) 13 Jun 2018 14:28:47
Zidaniel. I wish this were true but i highly doubt it.
Ive asked ed002 on a couple of occasions and he said psg would rather keep him and if a move does materialise it would be more likely that he would end up in Italy or Spain.
He is my favourite midfielder in Europe at the moment. A lovely player and a great attitude on the pitch.


2.) 13 Jun 2018 14:37:47
I think Verratti would be most people’s favourite and what an addition he would be but personally, I can’t see it happening.

Trying to be logical about things, in terms of numbers, with Carrick retired and Fellaini probably off, I assume (rightly or wrongly) Fred and one other CM coming in and my money is currently on Savic being that player.

One HUGE deal which is highly unlikely but wouldn’t surprise me is if Raiola was trying to negotiate Verratti to United and Pogba to PSG. I bet it won't be long til those rumours surface!


3.) 13 Jun 2018 14:39:31
Perfect signing for us if it can be done. I've made a few bob on him in recent weeks on Football Index, seems to be growing traction on there, (prices rise a lot quicker when Utd are knocking - bit like real life) .


4.) 13 Jun 2018 14:48:58
I agree, Ken, I am not getting my hopes up. He is a great passer and a midfielder who will battle with some passion. That kind of personality would bring some leadership on the pitch, something we could surely use.


5.) 13 Jun 2018 16:37:41
Hasn't he been ordered to lose weight over the summer? Also his work rate has been questioned? Sarri said he turned down psg because none of the midfielders are runners? We Jose likes a midfielder with work rate and can run a bit.


6.) 13 Jun 2018 20:49:54
Verrati is so overrated. Not even the best midfielder in his own team let alone Europe.


 

 

10 Jun 2018 02:18:49
A few thoughts on Pogba today:

He had a frustratingly typical game today in the friendly vs the US. A few moments of brilliance, mainly his cross to Giroud in the first half and a fancy nutmeg, but otherwise, often invisible.

But what stands out is that he is not a tempo setting player. Besides his great physical gifts and technical ability, he does have good footballing instincts. But Pogba is not a pass and move player, he rarely surprises the defense with his speed of thought.

He is just so damn good on the ball, that most of the time he doesn't have to bother playing quickly. He thinks he can shield the ball, and turn on most any defender, and most of the time he is right.

The downside is that he is not thinking ahead that well of finding spaces to drift into, and play one touch to a runner. He ends up slowing the game down because he takes so many touches. But all of this is very correctable. He just needs to play in a team that plays more on the front foot, and be given the freedom to play by his instincts more.

zidaniel

1.) 10 Jun 2018 06:11:38
Or could it be he likes being centre of attention, likes to admire his work (which can't be denied is sometimes top banana) and probably needs a player to shove a rocket up his jacksee (metaphorically speaking of course) to wake him up, because i reckon he's stealing a living off club and country at the moment, i think he only works to about 60% of his capacity, which is enough to give him some leeway on the hope he gives more, but on the other hand he gives just enough to frustrate even the most forgiving fan, simple solution, get in a bully of a player to educate him or get used to grinding your and counting to 10 again.


2.) 10 Jun 2018 06:41:39
He’s clearly talented, imagine him playing alongside Roy Keane. Keane would have scared the pants off him and maybe that’s part of our problem, we don’t have that force of nature in the dressing room that demands players perform. Maybe it’s a different era but we had a lot of players who set very high standards and demanded the same of their team mates.

I like Pogba, I just want him to be the player we think he can be. It’s time for him to step up.


3.) 10 Jun 2018 07:20:03
Agree with all that's been said. But especially with what Class posted. I was delighted when we signed Pogba. I thought he was going to be the midfield master that we've been craving for years. However, i think he's a lazy player who does dictate the pace of play but not in the right way, as he slows the pace and does not want to make the surging runs or expend any energy.
I've got to say that I've been hugely disappointed with his attitude and work rate. I posted many months ago that he seems more interested in his hair style and Twitter account than football. And sadly, this is the truth and he does not seem to want to improve as a player. We saw during the 2nd half at City what he can do. But he's got to put the effort in every match for the duration of the match.
Unfortunately, i don't think he'll change and at present he's a passenger in our team. If he insists on playing at half pace and energy, then i can't see him at United for long and frankly i don't want to see him playing for us if he's not that bothered.


4.) 10 Jun 2018 08:42:20
AAA exactly my same view.
I really like Pogba and think he can be great and the captain that we need. However he is currently too preoccupied with himself and probably think he is bigger than the club. I hope it’s just only the weather as some people said. But if he continues like this I really think we should move him on and invest on some others.
I really hope Pogba clears his head and start as the senior player that we need. He is skillful and intelligent. I am even fine with his media activities but he need to pull his socks up whilst in the field.


5.) 10 Jun 2018 10:01:34
I just think he simply isn't capable, shame.

I'm sure we have all come across people in life that we think if only they could 'focus' they would be incredible at what they do. The fact is people return to type if given the opportunity and football is one of those beasts which allows for a lot of free time and a lot of switching off in that spare time. It's like saying if only that bird I dated didn't turn into a psycho after 2 glasses of wine, but she does and she can't help it! If she won't stop drinking then you just accept it or move her on. We can't afford to accept it, we certainly can't rely on it as it is not in Pogba's nature to be consistent.

Little anecdote - When I was young I played football at a very high standard and all the best players never made it for one reason or another as far as I know, (certainly none at the top levels despite being elite teenagers), mostly to do with commitment levels and when you are young you often get anomalies with growth spurts etc - in fact the best technically and physically gifted player I have ever played with (and seen), would run rings around everyone at 16 and was even making the first team players in training look like mugs when allowed to train with them (some of which were seasoned internationals) . This African kid never actually went on to kick a ball professionally as far as I know, in fact one day he just didn't turn up for training and we didn't see him again. The club were doing everything to get him back but all we were told is that this guy didn't want to play anymore. I don't know if there was more to it or not as he was African and I doubt us kids would have been told the full story - I'm not exaggerating either, the kid was out of this world good!

Pogba will just be another of that long list of players that occasionally give you a Basic Instinct tease, but often revert back to their base instinct, he just doesn't have the umpf in his personality to lead a team, too bothered what other people think and needs too many other things to be perfect for him to perform consistently. Goldilocks player and we don't half the 'just right' formula and he doesn't deserve it anyway as he doesn't seem to have the personality needed to be the top dog.


6.) 10 Jun 2018 10:30:00
He put far more effort in last year and was far more disciplined in terms of his defensive duties. Maybe having guys like Zlatan and Wazza in the dressing rooms meant we had the personalities who'd get on his back and he'd listen. Nobody in the squad now would have the balls to confront him. Carrick has the respect of the players but it isn't his style. We used to be blessed with leaders who would fight to the death for the badge. We've replaced players poorly and replaced their personalities dreadfully.


7.) 10 Jun 2018 11:10:30
Good post Beast 👍.


8.) 10 Jun 2018 12:40:13
Interesting the posts alternate between criticism of the manager and then our players and then repeat. We are coming back, we finished second. Jose Is building a squad of the ashes of the last few years. Lighten up a bit guys!


9.) 10 Jun 2018 19:51:52
Agreed 666. If Pogba decides to dedicate his life to football, then he'll be a world beater. Only time will tell.


 

 

08 Jun 2018 00:05:19
Beautiful goal from Rashford today. Hope we will see more of that this summer and beyond. Happy for the lad today.

zidaniel

1.) 08 Jun 2018 07:19:25
He’s an exciting prospect. When he finds his consistency we have a top player there.


2.) 08 Jun 2018 08:03:15
Which clown is disagreeing with that are you a German?


3.) 08 Jun 2018 13:18:53
young rashford will be a star for years to come at united, we just need an attacking manager now to let the boy play and express himself.


 

 

10 Mar 2018 21:04:34
Fantastic win today. Keeps our position firm in the table for now, and gives confidence for the 2nd leg vs Sevilla.

I am delighted for Rashford. His first goal was absolutely brilliant, and the second was opportunistic. Jose was wise to take him off, as Rash was going all in on the tackles.

Great to see Bailly back, he gives the team a swagger. He made a mistake in the goal, but there he was making diving tackles time and again at the end. He has a confident mentality, which can transmit to those around him.

A lot of players put in a real shift today, Young contained Salah, Valencia won his battles, Smalling was steadier than usual, Matic and McTominay made a lot of tackles and interceptions. Young McTominay played like a veteran today. Job done, no fuss.

Lukaku was a difference maker up top, too much for Lovren to handle. Mata was effective throughout, with his good movement and tracking back, and nearly a beauty! Sanchez was frustrating often, but fought until the end. And that's all you can ask for. Jose and the boys will be proud tonight.

Two best moments:
1- Rashford's opener
2- Bailly's pirouette

Bring on Sevilla.

Z exactly how I feel. Taking Rash off means giving him rest for next CL game and not risking any potential injuries from bitter Lovren and Milner tackles. Can see that towards the last part of 2nd half when they realized they were totally outplayed even after we console them with a gifted goal to help save face 🤣🤣.
Read Frank De Boer criticizing Jose about Rash being subbed. Laughable from someone who can’t even keep his position in Palace yet dare to whimper and criticize. He should shut up and pray about his own management career.

Such a gulf between his talent and his behavior.

Hope Herrera will stay. He might be behind Pogba, Matic, and Fred if Fred indeed comes, but he is a valuable player. Tactically aware, committed, and he loves the club.

I prefer Griezmann, but he seems Barcelona bound, if rumors are correct. Both are great players. Griezmann's touch and finishing are world class. Bale might be injury prone, but he too is a world-class goal threat, as recent evidence has shown. And more local, close to home, and could follow in somebody's footsteps at Old Trafford.

Fair play guys, I get your point now, GDS2. I just think Liverpool have started well this summer by adding Keita and now Fabinho. But I also think Fred could be a great signing for us, and hopefully another CM if Fellaini does in fact move on. Savic sounds awfully expensive at the moment but time will tell.
And Park, I like your thoughts on what McKenna could bring tactically to the team.

Addict, you might recall that Monaco lost Mbappe, Mendy, and Bernanrdo Silva as well as Bakoyoko. LIverpool have started the summer well, people need to admit that.

Good to hear about Tuanzebe. Not being local like some of you, I didn't know that he was a talker and organizer. The more we see of him, the better.

Not for me. When I think of David Luiz, what comes to mind is great free kicks, dribbling out of the back, big hair, crying after getting destroyed by Germany. But not no-nonsense defending.

II hope Martial stays, it will be a shame to see him go. A tremendous talent, natural dribbler, composure in front of goal, but some of his situation is his own fault. Sanchez coming in, though, did not help him at all, nor the team. Martial has to be burning up inside watching the world cup from home.

Madrid might like Martial as a player but Martial might not fancy going to the same situation all over again at Madrid, being second choice much of the time. I would think he would want to go where he could be more of a guaranteed starter.

I agree, Ken, I am not getting my hopes up. He is a great passer and a midfielder who will battle with some passion. That kind of personality would bring some leadership on the pitch, something we could surely use.
