Yesterday we were signing Maguire and Bruno. Today we're signing Maguire Bruno and Dybala and all the negative people pop up. Hopefully we will sign all 3 and the party poppers will crawl back under their rocks, at least until January. I seriously don't think a player like Dybala is going to be forced into a move, also I don't think this can be compared to Di Maria. He was fully complacent in the move and was all about using us as a stepping stone.

Anyone remember when we signed Nani, Anderson, Hargreaves and Tevez in relatively quick succession?

If memory serves correctly the Nani and Anderson deals were announced on the same day and both a little left field versus media knowledge/ awareness, almost as if David Gill thought, well, I’m here in Portugal now, might as well be efficient.

And if I recall correctly Tevez landed as the unexpected icing on the cake not long after.

Ok so Tevez turned out to be quality but snake like; Hargreaves also quality for a very short period and will probably get injured if he reads this, Nani inconsistent but had his moments, one game v Arsenal sticks out and also hats off to anyone that can physically achieve accidentally kicking someone in the head after they have jumped for a header; Anderson kept the local kebab houses afloat, and other types of house if you believe the song - which btw was up there with any of our recent chants and I fondly remember Ronaldo, Anderson and a few other players dancing to us fans singing the Anderson song during a ~10 year old title celebration.

I’m sure I’ve muddled the details a little but I remember the feeling of “Wow, we mean business”. If we pull off the 3 signings mooted and sort out the DDG and PP situations in the short window available that’ll be similar imo - doubt it will happen though.

P. S. long time silent reader but intend to post more going forward. Keep up the good work Eds.

MattDamon, you mentioned Nani, hargreaves, anderson and Tevez. But the most important name you mentioned was David Gill. Now unless you tell me that there is someone in our tranfer dealing team that is good enough to lace David's boots, i am very worried.

Yes UA, losing David Gill was a massive blow.

Dawz if we don not sign any, then moan. don't complain about what may happen just for the sake of being negative.

Agreed completely UA. We've been here before with Mr Woodward. I don't want us to sign anyone who doesn't want to come, or comes for the money (Dybala) . We've bought enough of them and non have worked.
But i do want us to buy players like Fernandes, McGinn and McGuire because i firmly believe they'll give their all for the cause. Dybala is reluctant and wants the big bucks, thank you but no thank you.
So, in answer to the original poster, there are no party poopers, we all want our team to buy the best players, but only if they want to come to better our club.
Unfortunately, Woodward does not seem to understand this process.
We all hope that we can sign good, honest players between now and the season starting. So let's see what Mr Woodward delivers.
