  1. Which striker should we sign this summer?

    I'd be going all out for Sancho, and a top central midfielder if money allows. I'd also push hard to get Gomes and Chong nailed down, however unlikely. Sancho / Rashford / Martial / Greenwood / James / Fernandes / Pereira / Pogba for the top 4 positions Pogba / Fernandes / McTominay / Fred /...
  2. Smalling loan watch

    He's always been a very good defended from a purely defensive point of view, he's just not the archetypal modern defender. He's also always impressed in a high line because he has phenomenal recovery pace. He and Blind under Van Gaal were our best defensive partnership for some time, it's a...
  3. Paul Pogba player of the year 2019-2020

    Would be easier to attract and keep talent if the club was run better, qualified for the Champions League and didn't just look for quick fixes all the time. Pogba's just won the World Cup and is one of the best midfielders in the World. Why would he want to play in the Europa League?
  4. Paul Pogba player of the year 2019-2020

    He's frustrating to watch because he often tries to do too much on his own, but I guess he's just as frustrated playing alongside the shit he's had to since we've had him.
  5. Daniel James | 2019/20 Performances

    This. Realistically they shouldn't be playing in the same team.
  6. Luke Shaw | 2019/20 Performances

    So frustrating seeing him look to pass backwards as his first option. Seriously lacking confidence, maybe a result of the way Mourinho managed him. Perhaps it's just fitness?
  7. Harry Maguire | 2019/20 Performances

    He's improved us a great deal, but how much is quite difficult to judge because of the Matic effect.
  8. 6 realistic signings to improve us?

    How can we know what's realistic by next summer? We could win the treble or finish 10th and could arguably lose our two best players next summer as well. The better question would probably be which three positions are we weakest in.
  9. "Great teams are built from the back"

    Liverpool are on a different level having signed Alisson and Van Dijk. Man City have spent a fortune on their defence and too many people underestimate the importance of Ederson and Fernandinho in recent years.
  10. Scott McTominay | 2019/20 Performances

    A lot of our fans seem to judge a player on their last game, you only have to look at the number of people commenting in the Longstaff thread this weekend to realise how fickle our fan base is. On top of that, people seem to have a clearly defined idea that a player is either awesome or rubbish...
  11. Scott McTominay | 2019/20 Performances

    I agree that McTominay is at his best when he can play box to box, but unfortunately our limited midfield options and the lack in discipline of both Pogba and Fred would suggest that Scott will play the majority of games as the more disciplined midfielder. I'd personally rather not see much of...
  12. Scott McTominay | 2019/20 Performances

    His best position for us is to anchor the midfield and use his athleticism to put out fires where needed, we just don't have anyone better for the role right now. I'd like to see Garner get some game time but I just don't see Matic being frozen out yet despite his huge decline. I think Matic...
  13. Lukaku - transfer speculation | Gone

    He tried in the first few months, then reverted to the lazy prick he is. Didn't deserve to be here and I'm shocked that we've got such a good sum for him.
  14. Angel Gomes | 2019/20 Performances

    Unless we show faith and start him regularly, he's gone. There's no way he's going to stick around at a club that picks Mata ahead of him.
  15. Paulo Dybala

    What happens when Inter offer less than, or the same as they did for Lukaku? He absolutely has to go this window, as does Dybala seemingly. We know the figures required to get the deal done so it would be a relatively quick negotiation - so could we go back in for him to spite Inter or generally...
