    I don't see Ole spending 100m on Sancho when he lacks a #1 partner for Pogba at CM or a viable partner for Maguire at CB. Buying attacking depth is great when you have no starting positions requiring upgrades. I don't think Ole has that luxury at...
  • With Greenwood putting on a show at RW, other positions should be a higher priority for transfer spending in the next transfer window, imo.
  • I expect Jose to allow United to have a lot of possession. Pogba and Greenwood are great in possession so should start, imo.
  • yo@Kirk replied to the thread Kai Havertz.
    I believe Ole is still looking to find the right CF for his 4-2-3-1 attack. Since the restart, Havartz has 5 goals in 4 matches playing CF in a 4-2-3-1 or a 3-4-3 setup. Having that kind of physical ability, technical skills, maturity, and...
  • With Pogba back, I believe Ole will begin the restart with the same 4-2-3-1 he opened the season with in a 4-0 vs Chelsea. de Gea Wan Bissaka Bailly Maguire Shaw...
  • Someone has to start at RW in the remaining 2019/20 matches. That someone will not be Jadon Sancho. It should be Mason Greenwood because he's the best RW in the squad that will be available to play the remaining 2019/20 season and gives United...
  • With Ighalo covering for Martial at CF, Greenwood will be able to focus on RW for the completion of the 2019/20 season. A great opportunity which Greenwood will take convincingly, imo.
  • I believe Greenwood will show his quality at RW before this season is complete and will start next season as #1 at the position. 50m net spend won't allow big money signings.
  • yo@Kirk replied to the thread Cheap Backup Strikers.
    I wouldn't consider the Haaland interest as looking for a cheap striker for the bench. More like looking for a cheap striker that fits Ole's attacking scheme at the position better than Martial. French 22 year old striker Odsonne Edouard for...
  • About as long as Martial will be willing to stick around when he breaks past Martial. Competition promotes quality, imo.
  • After Martial, there is Rashford coming off a back injury and Greenwood with virtually no experience in the EPL at the position. Ighalo is probably needed more now than he was on the day he joined the club. That's why Shenhua holds all the cards...
  • It sounds like Shenhua want United to pay a bigger chunk of Ighalo's weekly wages while China's league start is delayed. Sure hope that's the case because extending the loan is better for Ighala and both clubs. I'd rather spend any transfer fee...
  • Spending 20m on Josh King instead of 25m on Odsonne Edouard is the kind of move a team hoping for a Europa League spot would make, imo.
  • yo@Kirk replied to the thread Jadon Sancho.
    If Ole thought Greenwood would grow into the first choice striker role, he would not have made a personal appeal to Haaland to join his team and be the focal point of his attack. I believe Ole will continue looking for a long term #1 striker for...
  • Man Utd interest in King appears to be speculation based on both Ole and King being Norwegian, Ighalo not making a permanent move, and Bournemouth wanting to get anything they can for King before his contract is up. As King surely would not...
