Hello, is it truth that MU is starting negotiations with Antero Henrique in order to replace Woodward. And if it is true, will it have an impact on this transfer window?

Summer slogan: Youth, Courage, Success
6 months later: Alexis will prove everyone wrong, what a 🤡 manager.

A year or 2 ago I would find it difficult to get tickets for Old Trafford, us being the biggest team in the land and all that. Nowadays I receive several e-mails a week from United offering me tickets for upcoming games. Funny thing is now i'm not so sure I want them anymore. Its clear the club care nothing for its massive fanbase, they just want our cash whilst giving nothing back. We have fallen so far, but we will fall a lot further the way the club is run. As for Bruno, if you were him would you come to United after witnessing how amateur we are.

{Ed002's Note - What are you expecting the club to do for their "massive fanbase".

Run the club properly invest in the infrastructure update the stadium have football people making decisions rather than just taking big dividends and treating it like a cash cow.

What an absolute joke this window has been. Targets available but nothing done with the usual talk of no value bad time of year to buy (so why did we not go after more targets in the summer, constant talk every year of 200/ 300 million to spend when our net spend last summer was prob about 70mil) We didn't replace at least 3 of the players that left in the summer and with this summer we are likely to see pogba Matic Gomes Chong leave. We will need to sign now at least 5/ 6 players minimum in the summer, anyone who thinks our club is capable of that is deluded on the eviedence so far of how we conduct our business.

Sometimes I just lose the will to live. Despite being incredibly short of players, losing our best forward, and first choice midfield, we sign no do y in the transfer window. To make matters worse, we are now talking if Sanchez proving everyone wrong. Sanchez was the worst signing we ever made, the salary, the disruption to Martial and Rashford, the unsettling of the dressing room, and the fact that he was complete, total, and utter trash every game he played. Yet we are now going to bring him back so he can prove everyone wrong.

I don’t know how much more amateurish or deluded we can get, it’s as if people in the club are operating in a bubble with no understanding of what is really happening.

Red Man, I owe you an apology. I used to think you were being over dramatic, but to be honest, you weren’t being dramatic enoug.

Well it's not like there was'nt plenty of evidence from The Glazers running of Tampa Bay to show us all where the club would end up.

28 Jan 2020 14:56:56
We all love the club, the badge, the history and all Manchester United stands for. but seriously what is there to love about us currently? the players, manager, board, ceo, owners are all self obsessed and only do things to benfit themselves not the club. Everyone has their own plans, own agenda, there's no cohesion, structure or purpose. Its an absolute shambles and it breaks my heart to see it.

28 Jan 2020 15:11:16
Great post AJH. It's indefensible and inexcusable that we haven't bought in January. Those within the club, the decision makers are getting away with murder the way they are running this club, particularly the way in which they have been allowed to comfortably run this club for such a long period.

The mediocrity we have now become accustomed to is unforgivable.

And yes, red man, many will owe you an apology. I have said on many occasions, you will be vindicated.

But that is merely a side bar. What matters most is that the running of this club is taken out of the hands of those that are doing such a poor job of it and be entrusted to professionals that can run a club.

Something has to be done.

28 Jan 2020 15:18:10
if we don't buy anyone which is what's going to happen


we are in trouble.


no midfield not enough options in attack and we have no bench

would be a miracle finishing in a European spot.

28 Jan 2020 16:08:32
Bilko, Exactly.

28 Jan 2020 18:54:04
Ajh nobody owes anybody am apology on here as opinions change for everybody over time. We all see things differently.
Im not to bothered at all by our inactivity this winter.
I think if ole took over the Liverpool team that they would drop 10 points before the end of the season. So it doesn't matter what players we give him i don't see him being able to change results or get the best out of any new signing.
Mctom and pogba will be back in a couple of weeks. So we might as well just crack on with what we have and hope we get a cl spot or miss out on europe altogether.
In the summer we start again.
My preference us that we do that under a new coach that is backed to the hilt and is working in a structure that he is comfortable with.
We have money to spend personally i think it would be unwise to let ole spend it at this time.
If its ole in charge next season then the summer is the time to spend not now imo.
But everybody sees things differently. I just think the fees are to big nowadays that its near impossible to flip a player on quickly if he doesn't work out without taking a huge hit.
Time for cool heads and good decisions and i think a good decision is to wait until there is more certainty around the coach.

Rumour via the mirror that we are signing Norwegian midfielder Sander Berge. do any of the ed's or other posters know anything about him?

"We've got players here that we're working hard to get back as well and if there is something out there then the club is pursuing that and it's difficult.

I can't remember how many good ones we've brought in and good deals in January.

Henrik was good, Nemanja and Patrice, I'm talking about it's hard, very hard, the clubs don't want to lose their best players. Alexis will come back in the summer and will prove us all wrong"

quotes from ole, club excuses as usual. I personally wish someone from the board/ management would come out and explain their incompetence instead of forcing ole to cover their a****.

Or may be the yes man grows a pair and calls the people above him for their incompetence.

28 Jan 2020 15:43:10
He may be a yes man, but without being privvy to his thoughts and the conversations he has with people at the club you will never know for sure.

The alternative is that he is an optimist, someone who tries to maintain a balance and a harmony at the club.

Slagging off the owners, the chief executive or anyone else at the club will not help the team. Jose tried that and it resulted in the worst form of his career at any club anywhere.

There are deep issues at our club, but having the manager call out the owners or whoever else in the media airing the dirty laundry in public won't help. So I'm not sure what people expect he hear the manager say at press conferences. As it certainly won't be anything like you'll hear in an episode of EastEnders.

28 Jan 2020 16:43:14
Shappy right now ole still has support especially among match going fans, any comment against glazers and their lackey will basically make him unsackable given the anger clearly on display. Sadly he is a yes man who is in the job only because Woodward and co. tried do a pr signing instead of finding themselves a competent manager.

28 Jan 2020 17:37:21
CSM, in YOUR opinion he is a yes man. Because you assume he is just nodding like a dog and saying yes sir, no sir, three bags full sir when speaking with Ed Woodward or any of the board/ owners.

However, your only basis for this opinion is YOUR analysis of his press conferences. You assume that because he doesn't come out and slam the owners and the board that he is just a yes man.

Yet, you aren't privvy to any of the conversations between Ole and the club/ owners. So you don't actually know. It's just your best guess based on very little to no information.

My opinion is your frustration is making you jump to conclusions. Unless you have some actual evidence that proves that Ole was told to say something he didn't agree with.

28 Jan 2020 18:23:00
My evidence is the fact that he has in his managerial term lost 2 midfielders, 3 defenders, 2 forwards and replaced them with 1 forward and 2 defenders.

He is a poor manager not a stupid one, given he did win trophies in norway, no one will willingly agree to have their squad gutted unless they are a yes man.

28 Jan 2020 09:13:14
Sorry pressed send by mistake, meant to say not risking Rashford putting him out for weeks, and probably would have got a result against Burnley with a bit of midfield creativity. Now if we miss top 4 buy a few points that will cost us more than the however many millions they are haggling over.
