I still feel that a lot of the problems stem from not having a Director of Footbal in place.
He would then determine the strategy, the recruitment, scouting and determine the correct targets ahead of the transfer window, Without one we are up Schitts Creek without a paddle.
Also it seems that City have a policy of trying to sign every target we want and rub our noses in it. Do people agree?

MOTZ11

{Ed002's Note - Obviously not - Manchester United appointed a Director of Football this season and Manchester City have zero interest in signing Manchester United targets.}


1.) 09 Jun 2021 10:49:47
I think the issue is clear direction and vision. Maybe that could come from a director of football, but that only works if the whole club will pull in the same direction and get behind the plan and do what is needed to make the plan work.

As for City trying to sign "our" targets, I very much doubt it. City seem to be well run and have a clear plan with their recruitment. You can see the kind of players they go for and they all fit a certain profile.

We just need to understand that as a club we get linked to around 900 players a year, with maybe 300 of them moving to other clubs. Did all those clubs pinch "our" targets or were we never really interested in them anyway.

City look to sign the best top class players or the best up and coming potentially top class players. Ones we have always been linked with.

Our top target is apparently Sancho, a player City have no interest in signing (or resigning in this case) .

Our top target for CB is Pau Torres, a player City scouted before we us. They then chose to sign Dias.

They might have an interest in Kane or Haaland to replace Aguero. But then they are two of the top strikers in the world, every top club is interested in signing them if possible.


2.) 09 Jun 2021 11:13:20
We do have a DOF in John Murtaugh…. the issue is does he actually have any power to do anything? Or is he like a few others just window dressing while the same people do the same jobs in the background?!


3.) 09 Jun 2021 11:26:36
motz we have a director of football. You were told this last week and now again today.
City trying to rub our noses in it? That's nonsense? They are a mild better team and a better run club i think they don't need to rub our noses in anything. Garbage post that.


4.) 09 Jun 2021 12:10:51
they are already doing that by winning mostof the trophys.


5.) 09 Jun 2021 21:54:48
@MOTZ on the contrary, I believe we are the ones who seem to be after their targets rather than the other way around.

I mean Sanchez and Fred (I remember, after his very good performance against city for his previous club. he was linked heavily with city but we swooped in and signed him 🤦. allegedly) are just 2 examples.

Plus, as the fellas here said, stop believing everything u read on the "blogs" n "news sites"!

{Ed077's Note - tarkowski??? Really??? Like seriously???


1.) 06 Jun 2021 12:40:06
I'd love to see a few of those ins MOTZ11 and I think 3 could happen (one already has) . I think Trippier and Sancho are starting to look like they could too so we'll have a nice new right side. I think Grealish and Rice as good as they would be are looking like mega-bucks.

My ins: Heaton, Varane, Tripper, Sancho. Maybe a lower-key CDM who comes in under the radar and isn't the stellar signing everyone wants.

Outs - I'm sure we'd all like to see a few of those gone. Can't see Fred or Martial going and Bailly (new contract) and Mata look like they're staying. Quite why Jones hangs around after so long I have no idea (oh yeah, 50k a week) . Lingard and either DDG or Hendo will be the only big name players to leave, IMO. Although if Spurs appoint ten Hag, maybe they're an option for DVB as of course he knows exactly how to use him.


2.) 06 Jun 2021 13:14:53
In: Varane, Rice, Sancho, Trippier

Out: Lingard, Perriera, Jones, Bailly, Dalot, Matic, James, De Gea

Loan: Brandon, Garner, Diallo, Pellistri, Mengi.


3.) 06 Jun 2021 13:37:08
Is De Gea that bad that some want him out? . I still think he's head and shoulders above Henderson and I think it was a little disrespectful by Ole to drop him to the bench for Henderson. He was our only shining light for a lot of Van Gaals time here and is still a young player. I don't understand it.


4.) 06 Jun 2021 13:56:07
DDG has made a huge amount of blunders or awful errors since 2018/ 19 season.

The guy literally threw the ball into his own net against Watford.


5.) 06 Jun 2021 14:01:47
Tarkowski. In why. De gea is better than Henderson.


6.) 06 Jun 2021 15:12:18
I think with DDG there are a few issues beyond just his keeping ability.

Is he the best player in the EPL? No.

Is he the best keeper in the EPL? No.

Is he improving or declining? Declining.

Yet he is the highest paid player in the league.

If the option to move him on presents itself the club would be foolish not to thank him for his service and let him leave without unplugging the fax machine.

I agree with True Red Devils choices.


7.) 06 Jun 2021 15:16:13
De Gea is on the decline and doesn't justify being the highest paid player in the league and highest paid GK on the planet.

I'd give Henderson a season with consistent run and then judge him.


8.) 06 Jun 2021 16:14:44
Anyone playing FiFA?


9.) 06 Jun 2021 21:00:01
TRD that's window I'd like to see.


10.) 06 Jun 2021 23:30:48
Shappy, I'm not sure why you care how much he earns, what does it matter. DDG is the best keeper in our squad, I believe and that's why I think he should not be sold. Some on here are very concerned with costs and finances. Utd won't go broke.


11.) 07 Jun 2021 08:23:40
KDB is the top earner in the Prem, btw if that makes it better :D.


 

 

30 May 2021 11:32:12
I think it is time United invested in a Director of Footballl who can take the club to the next level. Ahile Fergie is clearly still in the picture advising Ole- we need a proper structure which will allow Ole to pick the team and head up the coaching while someone else is responsible for recruitment and the strategy side.

I am not sure who that person would be but I clealry see we need one.

MOTZ11

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United recently appointed a Director of Football.}


1.) 30 May 2021 12:41:43
Is he advising Ole?


2.) 30 May 2021 20:05:03
Yes
But he needs autonomy as well to have an input into the decision making and strategy at the club that needs to be put on a professional level. When this happens the club can move to the next level.


 

 

03 May 2021 23:11:14
I am confused about exactly what the protestors want.
1) Is it the Glazers to sell their current shareholding. If so who to and when? Not a lot of investors about during C.V. times.
2) Is it all the trappings of a major club - Inflated ticket prices and merchandising? Something has to pay for inflated player wages and corporate costs and debt.
3) Is it the ESL and the potential break up of the Premier League? A lot of people complain abou the so-called top 6 and the lack of competitiveness in the existing league. C.V. has ensured almost equal coverage of all teams' games which has both been democratic and refreshing.

The way I see it United fans are feeling robbed of some kind of allegiance to past glories and history which is just used to drive future ticket sales and income. That is called exploitation.

Sad we can't be as moved to protest about things that really matter like C.V., racism and inequalities in our divided society. I think its a sad reflection of the poor reality that we live in where many people are starved of any real hope or meaning in their lives.
That is what I think the protest was really about and not the other things which in the final analysis are not important.

MUST has sent "demands" listing what they want.

Much of it centers around open communication between the owners and the supporters group. Apparently they have not had one conversation with the group -very reasonable request

Also appointment of non exec directors to the board, who have the best interests of the club at heart. -not sure how you choose such people, but again, seems very reasonable. Many large corporations that lose the trust of key stakeholders are encouraged to appoint NEDs for a more balanced corporate approach.

There was also something about making shares available to fans with equal voting rights as the glazers, even reducing their rights to that of a minority. -that is far more challenging to see why they would do that.


2.) 04 May 2021 07:21:24
MUST wanted changes that suits the best interest of the club.
They want Glazers to sell 51 % or the whole club and appoint board members who are not part of Glazer family.
Another point they want is to have proper communication with the fans.


3.) 04 May 2021 08:46:29
MOTZ,

The protests against the Glazers have been going on for a lot longer than when we were chasing ‘past glories’ as you so nicely put it. Don’t listen to Souness who totally missed the point with his ignorant comments and failed to see the bigger picture.

The finances of the club and what the Glazers have done to our club are there for all to see with a quick google, as are what the fans are hoping to achieve with the protests.

One journalist yesterday said that the Glazers have put loads of money into united and it isn’t their fault that it has been spent badly. The 2nd half of that is partly true, the money has been spent badly in the main, the first part is entirely false and scary that some parts of the media are spreading that narrative, the Glazers have put exactly £0 into Manchester United and that is where the problem lies with the fans.

A quick look at the finances sees that despite buying players and having a large net spend on transfers over the last 15 years the club have spent £1bn financing the purchase of the club in interest and loan repayments. Think about how much this is, 1000 million, or 10 top level world class players, or a stadium the fans can be proud of that’s not falling apart.


4.) 04 May 2021 12:23:33
Spot on GDS2.


5.) 04 May 2021 12:32:23
The irony of season ticket holders paying big money into the clubs coffers shouting glazers out is not lost on many.
In not sure how many but let's say 50,000 aeason ticket holders paying the owners 50m to shout obscenities at them while they make off with the supporters 50m with big ear muffs on and a smile on their face all the way back to tampa.


6.) 04 May 2021 13:02:14
You’re missing the point again there though Ken, whether deliberately to have a go at season ticket holders on here or otherwise I’m not sure.

I love going watching the club, it’s my biggest hobby, it means a lot to me and if I were to relinquish my season ticket I would lose the seat I have sat in for years that brings me great joy every week win or lose, I’m not willing to do that but I can still be unhappy with how the club is run and want changes to how the money is spent.

Why does it have to be one or the other? The whole point is that we want the club back that we as season ticket holders go and watch every week, to take that away from ourselves would be cutting off our nose to spite our face. I’m sure some are willing to do that but it’s unrealistic to ask people to give up something they love knowing that it won’t make any different as someone else would just be sat in their seat while they sit at home miserable.


7.) 04 May 2021 13:26:56
Finally I agree with gds2. 2 good posts there.


8.) 04 May 2021 13:45:24
Gds2 if your not prepared to make that small sacrafice why do you expect the glazers to walk away from tens of millions of pounds.
You keep paying they will keep taking.
Its not your club its theirs whether you like it or not. As long as people keep the stus quo and keep the cash rolling so will they imo.
So you want them to make all the sacrifices? What's in it for them to make these sacrifices?

Who should make sacrifices gds2 if you other supporters aren't why should the glazers?
They are happy to be hated in Manchester but rich in florida.
If every Supporter looks at it as selfishly as you and are afraid to give up their hobby for a short time and have the courage of their convictions then I don't see why the glzers should sacrifice anything.
No point making lots of noise like the proverbial empty vessel have the courage of your convictions and make a stand.


9.) 04 May 2021 13:47:14
glazers love money gds2 is is realistic to ask them to give it up if you don't find it realistic to give up the seat you love to take a stand?


10.) 04 May 2021 14:20:43
If you and the likes of you are happy to keep paying your money into the glazers retirement fund they have not pushed you all far enough. They're is still more for them to squeeze from the cash cow because people are still paying into it.
But if the cash dried up then they may be encores to sell. I see that as a lot more likely than people shouting 'you dirty rotters ' Stafford in green and gold from their very handsomely paid for seats.


11.) 04 May 2021 14:27:11
I think I explained exactly why I am not going to give up my seat, to me that would not be a small gesture and it would not benefit me or the club in any way, you've again chosen to not understand which is fine, I am just explaining mine and other people's views.

If me giving up my seat meant the Glazers left and everything is hunky dory I would give it up tomorrow, but it wouldn't and it would just make me miserable. I think I can go to the matches and support the club I love without leeches trying to ruin our club and football as a whole.

Leahy,

Things must be bad mate haha.


12.) 04 May 2021 14:36:32
I understand perfectly gds2. To me its akin to complete hypocrisy but that's not surprising as you say you are not alone in your stance of doing nothing but wanting a lot in return for your zero effort to the cause.


13.) 04 May 2021 16:27:49
Wow, just wow.

So I am only allowed to want better if i am willing to sacrifice something I love? That is such a strange way of looking at it.

Just to be clear as well, I wasn't at the protest, I have made that clear, I said that I agree with what the fans stand for and explained why the fans want that. If I thought not going to the games would help in any way then I would do it, as I explained, but it is not going to happen and it wouldn't help. I wonder if your opinion would be the same if my post wasn't from me because I am pretty sure you agree with everything I've said like the majority of fans do.


14.) 04 May 2021 17:23:12
It's nothing to do with you personally gds2 so need for the usual woe is me.
As I said above you are not alone. But as the OP says there is confusion.
What is it you want?
You want to go and pay your money but complain about the people you're paying. You are funding their ownership. You have a choice and your choosing to continue supporting their business because it brings you pleasure.
So you think the Glazers should just sell up and give up hundreds of millions simply because you don't agree with their ethos but your not prepared to take a stand against it as it discamodes you.
I agree I would like a different structure but I won't be attending games or subscribing to mutv or buying corporate trips to OT or buying any merchandise that's my personal choice. Very few will be paying cash so borrowings against the club will increase in all likelyhood for most new owners. The expectation of a return on a 3 billion investment will be in excess of the order of what the glazers take out.
Every penny this club earns is their money. So if they don't spend all that money servicing loans they will take it out anyway. They are in it for the money as will most new owners unless we are owned by the other owners with even more questionable history. But sure you can find an excuse to turn a blind eye to any negative if you try hard enough or you can have the courage of your convictions and say enough is enough.
Its not a criticism of any individual every fan can make their own choice but if you don't support them don't support them. Some folk just want their cake and eat it.
The owners have been incredibly smart financially and I'm not sure they are the type to walk away from fortunes when they have enough people supporting their business. You can support the team just as well without paying the people you despise a penny but you choose to keep the glazers in the style to which they have become accustomed. You are not alone.
If you think a small things can't make a difference try sleeping with a mosquito for the night.


15.) 04 May 2021 18:01:18
Ken - I must say that is a collection of some of the most disappointing posts I’ve ever read from you!


16.) 04 May 2021 18:05:56
Gds2 your comment of do you have to sacrifice something you love to have something better. The answer is yes a lot of the time you do.
I don't know how old you are but your not a kid and if you have got this far in life without making sacrifices for improvement ill be shocked.
When studying for your accountancy exams and going through college did you not have to make a sacrifice or 2? Its not a strange way of looking at it at all. Its just life. I think it would be very strange if you never sarificed something you love for betterment.
You just want want want and you don't want to put up with the rain in order to see the rainbow but you want others to get all the rain so you can see the rainbow.
You are not alone of course but there will be lots of people like you happy to moan but not happy to do anything about it.


17.) 04 May 2021 18:17:48
I actually gave up my season tickets before the C.V., I couldn't justify the time away from my family and my son has no interest in football or going to matches. With The money I saved I have bought a hot tub, a cabin for it and a projector to watch games. I'm sure I will miss match days but I'm happy knowing the glaziers will be not getting any more of my money.


18.) 04 May 2021 18:24:09
why dlib? Have you the courage of your convictions or are you going to stand in a greenhouse throwing stones being disappointed?


19.) 04 May 2021 18:43:45
This is why we’ll never get rid of the Glazers! A divided fan base that prefer to aim their vitriol towards the manager and some players rather than those in control and making the decisions.

For those that still lack the comprehension to understand why the Glazers are not just bad for Manchester United but the whole of football I implore you to do your research, get the facts and try to post something with a modicum of intelligence rather than calling all season ticket holder’s hypocrites.

The parasite’s make money by trading off peoples loyalty built up over nearly 100 years of history and tradition. To suggest season ticket holders should simply stop doing something they love and have been probably been doing for generations demonstrates a complete lack of knowledge and understanding.

Maybe a coordinated and organised campaign led by MUST whereby fans are encouraged not to renew their season ticket or buy merchandise may help to hit the Glazers where it hurt’s most but to get thousands of people to give up on their passion in enough numbers to make a difference would be extremely difficult and there are always others ready to take their place. Have you conveniently forgotten about FC United with your ridiculous mosquito analogy. A few individuals giving up on their passion will make no difference.

Football is about supporting your Club through think and thin, good owners and bad. The players still deserve the fans support despite the owners but to suggest you can’t protest or voice your discontent is one of the most juvenile arguments I’ve ever heard.

The ESL would eventually see Utd playing games all over the globe in a uncompetitive league designed for the sole reason of making a few billionaires even richer.

The Glazers do not own Man Utd they are simply greedy custodians that will unfortunately form part of our illustrious history. Football Clubs hold significant cultural and historic importance and I’m sure government legislation will be drafted to safeguard our national game. Football is nothing without the fans and these rich owners forget this at their peril.


20.) 04 May 2021 18:47:01
Fair play Simon. Everybody had a choice. You can support the glazer empire or choose not to.
My own view is either put up or shut up. Don't moan if you continue to give them your money. You have a choice.
But lots of folk want the best of both worlds. You have to break a few eggs to make an omelette sure its not an essay decision and if you choose to continue to support their business financially then don't expect them to sell it. Their only interest is maximising profit for their family. They have proven they would rob the crown jewels yet people keep paying them.


21.) 04 May 2021 19:00:31
Ken, are you naive enough to think that if GDS gave up his seat that it wouldn't be immediately snapped up by someone else regardless? You may not agree with GDS on all his points but I think it's pretty clear he's United through and through. That season ticket could easily be handed to someone who isn't so well versed in the clubs traditions, who won't be that fussed on going to every game and who won't be as vocal against the ownership and stand up for the club's history. If all the anti-Glazer season ticket holders gave up their tickets in protest, all that would be left would be a hollow shell of a club without atmosphere or tradition or values. It would be an excursion not a passion. I know I'd rather have the lads in there, who go every week of every year, who've grown up loving our club, who will make a stand and sing and shout and say what needs to be said.

If GDS and other season ticket holder gave up their tickets, it would barely register on the Glazer's radar - the balance sheets would read thr same, and that's all that matters to them. However, the club as we know it would be lost, the passion ripped out of the stadium. Being a United season ticket holder is a way of life for the fans that have them, to ask them to give up so much is disproportionate for the effect it will have. I can't believe you're so blind to that and can call them hypocrites.


22.) 04 May 2021 19:06:20
Dlib I don't want the glazers in charge at all i'm not supporting them.
Who suggested you can't voice your discontent? I'm saying there are better ways and to pay them the money and then shout at them to get out i don't comprehend.
I'm afraid your wrong dlib the glazers do own Manchester United and all its intellectual properties logos and copyrights. They do own them to suggest they don't is sticking your head in the sand and more juvenile then any analogy I came up with but I do admire the attempt at a personal dig. 👍
What do you want the glazers to do dlib?
Considering their only goal is financial then whatever your idea is has to appeal to them financially.
So what's your idea dlib?


23.) 04 May 2021 19:14:51
Dlib this is not the reason why we won't get rid of the glazers at all. Stupid comment imo. The reason why we won't get rid of them is that nobody can offer them enough money. Its all about the money with these lads.
They won't be hurting in tampa because you sleep in green and gold pj's or cry boo on a Saturday afternoon or while fans trespass on their own club and fight with the police outside. It was a pathetic protest maybe for all the right reasons but will have little or no impact as its not coordinated strategic or Financially damning to Joel and Co. Put them under pressure by all means but unless the cash stops flowing they ain't going anywhere and from there point of view there is no reason why they should. We need to give them a reason to leave and the only one they understand is the dollar.


24.) 04 May 2021 19:31:20
Ken - I’ve been a season ticket holder at Old Trafford for nearly 30 consecutive seasons. I’ve been going to the games with a group of the same friends for nearly 3 decades and we religiously go out for a few beers at Christmas and the end of every season. As we’ve got older, grown up, had children and pursued different careers going to the matches has kept us all connected in our passion and love for the Club. Going to the games together has become more than a hobby but a lifestyle.

To suggest that we are hypocrites for going to the games but still wanting the Glazers out of the Club is both insulting and wrong. In fact you went one step further and even implied that it was season ticket holders fault for keeping the Glazers in power for not making the necessary sacrifice.

That’s what makes me a Utd fan! I support my Club. Before me my dad went to the games and hopefully I’ll take my own children one day.

I’m sure GDS2 and thousands of other season ticket holders have similar stories. The Glazers know this and trade on our devotion, our loyalty, on our way of life!

The truth is the Glazers should never have been allowed to buy the Club in the first place. They are not fit for purpose and never have been and if you want to be a Glazer apologist then that’s your prerogative but please understand what your talking about first.

I believe the only way to hit the Glazers is either financially or to lobby the Government to make legislative changes to how Clubs are managed. Both will be very difficult.

Perhaps on the back of C.V. it might be time to ask fans to make the ultimate sacrifice and not renew their season tickets but this must be organised and unfortunately others would just take our place. Me and my friends taking our own personal stand will make absolutely no difference.

I don’t profess to have all the answers but we’ll never get anywhere as a divided fan base and I thought your post demonstrated a real lack of empathy and understanding.


25.) 04 May 2021 20:09:55
Dlib i'm Not a glazer apologist or supporter. In fact the opposite but i'm also a realist.
I have the same understanding as you dlib if you care to read the posts properly instead of firing insults and getting your knickers in a twist. I've said the only way to hit them is financial.
The glazers trade on your loyalty and devotion because you let them simple as that. You choose to pay into their business. It is a 100% voluntary choice nobody forces you. You do it because you enjoy it. I've not criticised any supporter for that again if you care to read the posts. But I do criticise people for moaning and yet still choosing to support their business financially that is the essence of hypocricy imo just the same way as you claim the glazers don't own the club when they obviously do.
We are on the same page dlib with regards to the owners. You say its a divided fan base i'm not surprised its divided when people are afraid to make a stand because it changes the habits of a lifetime.
You have even come to the same conclusion yourself yet still jump on me for it.
What sponsors want to pay to an empty stadium?
What owners can survive without fans
I think you were one of the ones that said football is nothing without fans I tend to agree.
So stop going, change your habits of a lifetime for the longterm benefit of your club. They won't half fill the place without the regulars. Day trippers will join the stance you just watch.
Don't give me 100 reasons not to do something when there is 1 good reason to do it.
Lead the boycott be a hero and a leader. Do it for your club and if required go and support salford for a season with your pals.
Without people taking the 1st steps buying happens
The bottom line is some fans want nothing to change yet want everything to change as long as it doesn't discamode them personally.
Again tell me a compelling financial reason for the glazers to sell. Your around long enough and are articulate enough to understand that any potential deal has to appeal to them first and foremost because despite your denial they own the club. No amount of stamping your feet will change that unless there is a compelling financial reason that appeals to them.
Would you support them selling to the Saudis? Would you give up your season ticket then or turn a blind eye to their human rights record while you sit in a shiney new seat in a shiny new stand. Each individual has to stand up for what they believe in.


26.) 04 May 2021 20:39:39
Dilb is your argument that people should still go and pay into their coffers and people should still go to the megastore and buy merchandise and people should still support the club financially and all the fans should be united in that?
I only go over 4 or 5 times a season usually in corporate entertaining trips so its not a huge sacrifice for me but I'll do it because after the esl debacle I don't want to support the owners in any financial way. My customers will have to do with Wimbledon or Silverstone or a different day out because I would not be happy giving united a penny. So I won't be back at OT anytime soon. To be honest I've not enjoyed most visits there for the last 10 years despite being there over 50 times in that time. One of the dullest atmospheres in the epl most of the time due to totally uninspiring football and painfully quiet fans. Being in the away end at an away league or particularly a European match is 10 times more enjoyable for me and much better craic.


27.) 04 May 2021 21:19:06
The seats I get don't help that BTW before I. Jumped on😊 the Stretford end is usually right at it. But not much to cheer over last 8 years at OT.


28.) 04 May 2021 21:22:03
DLIB,

so gds2 would you support a Saudi takeover or would that be a step too far?


30.) 04 May 2021 21:45:18
dlib / gds2 would you have renewed your season ticket if the esl had gone ahead?


31.) 04 May 2021 22:14:54
Not sure, I think I probably wouldn’t have done as I would have had very little interest in it and I think most fans would have done the same meaning it would have actually meant something to not renew.

If there was no domestic football I would have been done.

Somerset i think it's completely hypocritical.
Of course gds2 is united mad but that imo us even more reason to take a stand.
Jaysus there are not enough bravehearts or Nelson mandalas around.
If all season tucket holders refuse to renew they won't sell them as other won't take them up. The waiting lists fir season tickets now is very much subsided.
Tell me the reasons that will appeal to the glazers that they should change the structure?
I want i want I want us all very well and good but what's in it for them? They are not going to turn their backs on hundreds of millions.

Dortmund are in a strong position. They actually don't need to sell anyone . I think we would be better off going for Traore and Neves from Wolves who are also available rather than wasting another window pursuing Sancho.

Personally I don't think United will get rid of Ole as they want stability in the management setup having got rid of 3 managers post Fergie.

Certainly assessing the players, strategy and recruitment and letting some players go will be key feature of the pre-season and it is too early to judge at the moment.

The issue with both Mata and Matic is a curious one - they do offer a little bit of experience that may be useful when bringing on younger players. But then I think they are just bench players now. Mata could go but he likes being at United and I can see him in a support role when he does retire.

The goalkeeper issue is more pressing. De Gea needs to be more consistant or he will just find himself in the wilderness at OT. I think we should sell him. It will be better for him. Henderson is likely to be number one this season but he also needs to improve to guarantee himself number 1 spot. I think buying back Heaton was a good move but the one I can't understand is Grant - he is a perfectly good goalie. He should be playing first team for another team.

The squad does need trimming. Until someone makes the decisions I can't actually seeing this much. I think they will let contracts run down for people they don't want like Jones and then they go on the open market on a free.

On the positive sode there are numerous young players who are on verge of the first team which augurs well for the future.

Ole will stay this season and be judged on results . Silverware and success are a priority this year otherwise he will be sacked.

I think it may not have been a penalty but I think the way Westergaard repeatedly upended or blocked Raheem Sterling was a contributory factor and it was in the referees mind when he gave the decision. It might have had a cumulative effect and so the ref. gave it. Who is arguing anyway? The best team won.

I see James as a possible convertion into a midfield player - he covers well has speed to break and good game awareness. Needs to improve crossing and passing.

I think the poor perforamnces or non performances are due to a mix of issues.

1. Transfer speculation may well affect performance - but they are highly paid professionals and should be able to deal with this.
2.A tight schedule at the Euros with a lot of travel must affect player conditioning and performance.
3. The committed teamwork of certain teams like Switzerland who have a great team ethic highlighted the faults in the Ftench team who are made up of talented individuals but who are not a team. Denmark are also showing a great team ethic.

Ideally we will sign Sancho, Grealish and Calvert Lewin
That would improve us by at leat anoth 50%.
