    I quite liked him when he played alongside Smalling at the back, it kinda worked, it was probably Smalling's most consistent spell in a United shirt, and Blind had a calmed assurance about him, regularly getting the ball into a midfielder player on the move(something we're missing now), and for all the fears about his lack of pace/physicality he rarely got done for either, often just stepping in in front of the attacker whilst they were waiting for the ball.

    But his future is in midfield, thats where he's playing for Holland at the minute, I wouldn't particularly fancy him in a two, but in a three he'll do a very good job for whoever is lucky enough to sign him(if he leaves)

    Physicality maybe, but I don't think he's any slower than Matic, Carrick, or Paddy Crerand

    He's easily a £25m+ player if only for his versatility, but we won't be getting that from Roma, or any Italian club at the minute.

    Those 2 players coming in need to be class acts. We also need cover for Valencia at RB next season, he isn't getting any younger.

    I'd argue three signings. LB, RB and CM.

    It's annoying the deal broke down. Would have been good to get him off the wage bill.
