Blind was somehow Plan B to Vidal, folks. Not quite box-box, but defensively aware. The Falcao deal & the players leaving, have taken up the whole day for the club.
Lets just hope we get the Falcao deal over the line, so we can dream of what could have been with a proper world-class box-box CM'er yet again..
I'm at a loss why we couldnt manage to get a top-class CB & CM in. Truly baffled..
Still hope left until the final whistle blows. Watch this space lads...
Dang got one of those can't take the strain messages and thought\....VIDAL ON!
Big time Pex. Hang tough brother
Got to presume this to be the case - we could have signed Blind weeks ago.
Plan B midfielder, safe option already known by the manager, always available, eventually signed on deadline day... hmm, this all rings a bell...
Falcao taking an age to be confirmed, must be because the medicals take longer when you're trying to do two players at the same time. Secret Vidal.
Nah, that will have been WELBECK OFF (to Arsenal)
It's not over 'til it's over, gentlemen!
Shall we see if we can get #secretvidal trending on twitter within the next hour?
I'll actually be sad when this thread closes in a couple of hours. It will be like a son or daughter leaving the house and going to college .
Not that i have a son or daughter, or a house for that matter.
But like a son or daughter going to college, we'll think we miss it until it comes back at xmas, and then we'll remember how annoying it was.
You should read that again mate..
Thats retro dude.. retro..
60mins left to get Falcao over the line & for Vidal to jump out of the celebration cake..
I wonder why Vidal sold his house then lol, i wonder if he really thought he was coming but the problems with his knee put us off. i'd feel sorry for him if that was the case.
I agree but atleast he wasn't the only signing we have made. Now that was a bitter pill to take.
One last time... for old times' sake
Would be sweet if the club announced Vidal at the same time as Falcao. No tweets or reports - just out of the blue.
So, no Vidal then Had such high hopes this summer.
Sat on the bowl for 645 pages...
... and no poo. None whatsoever. For feck sake.
I strained a bit too hard and had an aneurysm.
Was waiting all summer for him, now even our star signing doesn't excite me that much as he is to remain at Juve
We'll get him in January
Some threads you'll be glad to see die...
Until January then...
It is truly amazing that this deal was dead from page one but here it is 645 pages later .Well done.
Vidal AND Strootman in Jan. Fellaini sold, Cleverley thrown out of a window and our midfield will be set for the second half of the season.
We shall meet again in January...
Only it clearly wasn't.
Van Gaal mentioned him publicly, Van Gaal has also fawned over Vidal before and even tried to sign him in the past.
I have no doubt we wanted him but whether it was his knee or something else i don't know but it obviously wasn't a money problem.
A bit ironic we've ended up doing one of those Van Gaal 24 hour deals for a previously crocked striker to replace our current crocked striker when we worried so much over Vidal's knee.
Like you, being dead certain this deal was going to happen for a while now... we certainly where interested but for some reason we couldn't close it now.
January it is.
And as i understand it, Falcao's injury is a more serious injury.
I don't know, this whole Vidal thing is so bizarre, we clearly wanted him, we clearly had the money to do it so why don't we have him?.
He's damaged his ACL at least three times and had it reconstructed twice. Risky.
Swallow your pride @Pexbo
Us muppets need you as a spiritual leader and divine light in times of darkness. No need for internet seppuku.
There's always next window.
Gutted this hasn't happened. Everything we needed.
21 more pages, fellas......
Let's make this 666.
Right, time to get that bid in.
Guys 20 minutes to go so a hypothetical question -
£10,000 in your pocket right now or Utd to announce Vidal before the deadline, what would you pick?
