    New notice: If people don't adhere to these simple rules, they'll be threadbanned.

    DON'T:
    • Post anything from clear BS accounts.
    • Post anything from clickbait tabloid accounts.
    • Post anything from aggregator sites (Utdreport etc) who don't link to original source and tend to make stuff up for retweets/follows.
    • Use the thread to argue about the players United are linked with compared to those that a club like City are signing. If you want to moan, make a new thread.
    • Use the thread to moan about people who are moaning.
    Tweets from actual journalists who work for well known media outlets are always best. (Examples - Di Marzio, Mitten, Ogden, Mathieson, Marcotti, Jackson, Ducker etc)

    Last year's blacklist still applies and we will add or subtract new accounts to the below list as appropriate.

    Window opens at the end of one season, closing before the beginning of the next. Common sense prevails.

    Here's to some early, pre-world cup signings!

    "Why aren't we in for him?"
    "City/Liverpool aren't messing around"
    "What the feck are we doing?"
    "Woodward is out of his depth!"
    "Di Marzio is a God"
    "Get the feck in!"

    Scrap the transfer windows and go back to the pre 2002/3 system!

    It just fuels transfer inflation.

    Will probably happen eventually, especially if fees continue to spiral out of control.

    This really shouldn't open until after the CL final... Technically couldn't Real Madrid bid 100-200m for Firmino/Salah/Mane to unsettle Liverpools key players before the final, and actually agree a deal since the window is open? I would say us doing it to Chelsea but I don't see who would be realistic in that scenario. But if we were playing a smaller side then we could definitely do it to them.

    True. Even in FIFA I simulate the matches (while actually playing just enough matches to win the league) and then wait for the transfer windows :drool::drool:

    Going to run from 17th May to 9th August for us. I think the rest of Europe will still be open until 31st August giving us a few more weeks of worry.

    This is a much better way of doing it. Business will hopefully get done sooner and no fannying about once the season starts

    The Sun have linked us with Napoli's right back Hysaj. He seems to have a 44m release clause. Not posting it here as they are blacklisted.

    Nah, transfer muppetry starts with "that" thread, you all know which one. The one we all click first thing in the morning with eyes wide open if it's big number, only to get dissapointed when there are no tweets about United. Not to mention bitching and moaning if we are linked with, let's say, Gaitan, while other clubs are "getting" all the best players in the world.
    Then, we go to toilet and make cup of coffee/tea, go to work, etc..

    Looking forward to "Ronaldo wants to come home" tweets.:rolleyes:
