David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo dont own planes. What the feck would Memphis Depay need one for? Where does Memphis Depay need to get in double fast time on short notice?
You think Depay’s life is dictated by what Beckham and Ronaldo have/do? you guys are weird

also, very much doubt he Depay owns the plane

He’s with De Ligt and co on international duty and wants to be part of the circus, is all I would expect.

As far as him coming back to Utd, he definitely doesn’t fit the profile of a player that’s more interested in the club than celebrity that ole has described.

He's a bit weirdly loyal to United, I'm not complaining but I just wouldn't expect it - might have something to do with the clause. A lot of United references in his IG despite getting booted out the club for being shite.

Either that or he's one of those guys that wears football kits like it's NBA jerseys.

Not going to lie I'd be a bit disappointed if Cristiano Ronaldo doesn't own a plane. I would do a lot worse with this kind of money.

I think he wants more eyes on him and branding United does that job.

Why wouldn't United fans want him back?

Liverpool fans seem to like the idea of having him but somehow he's not good enough, or the right fit for United? How's that work?

This will end up being like Mane, where for many United fans it was all gun and games him going Liverpool, till he turned into one of the best players in the league...

I think when a player comes, shows a lack of effort, fails and leaves, fans generally aren’t begging for their return.

Also is he good enough for either United or Liverpool? I haven’t seen a lot to suggest yes

I know he failed first time, I think it was to big for him. But he's a very good player and if someone like Klopp is actually interested then I would assume he is good enough for Liverpool, and that should make him good enough for United.

They appear to have an eye for attacking talent that we currently lack.

Memphis is useless most of the time because he is incredibly inconsistent. In a way he is a sort of Quaresma, if you don't watch him regularly you may think that he is very good but at the moment he isn't.

Klopp seems to know how to get the best out of guys like him, that's why he takes the risks. If he comes to us chances are we will the same Memphis from 3 years ago

I like him, would really hate seeing him in a Liverpool shirt. Also a lot of people here would eat their words.

People on here said that about Mane and Firmino when we were linked...

Turned out well
I didn't.

But I am about depay. Not good enough as we've already witnessed.

Hope he joins Liverpool he’s fecking shite.

One of our worst buys, the guy could barely kick a ball straight for us. All he did was make mistake after mistake.

What is he good at? He's far too slow, can't dribble, is about as agile as a rhino and is surprisingly easy to knock off the ball. He has a decent shot, but his free kicks, that were good in the Netherlands, were too easy for PL goalies.

To be honest, I see him as a good replacement for Firmino. He's been operating as a false 9 striker for the Dutch team and has been a revelation in the role. Same also for him in the previous season with Lyon when Lyon was operating a diamond setup which gave room for both Fekir and Depay in the team.

But as a lead striker with Fekir behind him is a recipe for disaster because he's not just a striker but a forward who loves to roam in the final third and with Fekir already roaming in the space behind him, there's little he can do and not to mention the fact that Fekir is tunnel visioned.

You mean like Shaqiri?
Shaqiri had 6 goals and 5 assists in 1413 minutes this year, including a few big plays in important moments. He wasn't amazing, but that's pretty good efficiency, especially for a player getting inconsistent minutes in a new team.

So, Liverpool fans rate Memphis now, but he was just a shit Firmino when he played for us? Funny how that always happens, like how everyone thought Welbeck was going to be the second coming of Thierry Henry the moment LvG binned him off.

Imagine if we flog Phil Jones this summer. He'll be John Terry mk2 in line for a future knighthood and we just didn't give him a chance to flourish.

I think he'd be a "shit Firminho" for them now too, but that would give them someone to compete with Firminho and cover for him being unavailable.

Why would Liverpool even want him? He'll not bench anyone in that front 3. Even as a striker Firmino is better for them and suits their system better. He would literally warm their bench and make an apperance here or there like Shaqiri.

Liverpool can have him. He's not really that good despite his decent stats at Lyon. He dribbles like Ronaldo in his 30s. It's very mechanical and doesn't actually help in beating his defender. His off the field activities have only increased since he left United. I remember him releasing a rap song or something. He seems to be doing well for Netherlands oddly but so does Lukaku for Belgium so I don't know what to make of it.

Footballers and their shit fashion sense these days. He’d fit in well with Lingard and Rashford.

Whatever the feck happened to footballers having some class in their dressing? A black or navy suit for example?

Would take him back. There is a very good player in him and think Jose and LVG style of play never helped him. His off the field stuff yeah its a little cringeworthy but nothing compared to Lingard who is far worse player then he is

I honestly thought he was one of the worst players I've ever seen wear the shirt. I remember the Norwich game towards the end of the season where he was appalling.
. Our fans is too impatient with creative players that has imagination. We still have some of the worst players to wear the shirt in our team now and they are closing on their testomonials. I won't be surprised to see well oiled machine like Liverpool and Klopp take him in higher level . It's a good environment to play football.

Untrue, Depay sometimes pulls off his attire. At worst it suits his personality which is largely that of showoff. A Zlatan-lite.

Rashford and Lingard turning up to a charity match dressed as university professors was offensive to each of the five senses.

Depay would be a good addition to our team but we have a lot of Left side Attackers and so it would be quite unnecessary as of now.

That's exactly how I remember him.
Can some of his fans tell me one premier league match, where he stole the show? Just one.

Basically, against poor defences (like Midjyland), he'll do well, but put him up against any EPL defence (and that includes a relegation candidate), he can't do anything.
If he joins LFC, they will find out that EPL defenders are just too good for him. I think he might do well in the Championship for League One, but the EPL is too tough for him.

Can he even play well on the left nowadays? He doesn't have the pace, agility nor control to operate well on the wing. He's at his best through the centre either as a SS or false 9 striker.

Let's bring Evans, Januzaj and Welbeck back while we're at it.

We already have more than enough "eh he'll do as a backup I guess" players. That's the most he'll be, whether here or at Liverpool, and he was far from even being of that standard when we had him.

I thought I'd have a bit of fun and quote YOU from the past where you praise him. Turns out you were always anti-Depay (so fair play to you ;))

Wanna be our DoF?

I found this post of yours with some quotes from other posters:

"It's interesting to see how views about Memphis have changed as the season progressed.
the following quotes are taken from the first page of this thread.

** He looks like a beast physically from the training photos, which bodes really well for his training ethos. Hopefully he has a good tour, scoring afew goals to put himself into the match day squad for game one. I don't want to put him under to much pressure but I feel that if Depay can replicate his form of last season in the premier league then Utd will have a great shot at the title.

** He's the signing I'm most excited about, but that's possibly because he's an attacking player. He just has extraordinary potential.

** He's gonna be a beast for us. I can sense it.

** Dream chaser!! Dudes a beast.

** It's his work ethic, more then anything else, which excites me. He clearly wants to be the best player in the world and he'll work hard as hell on and off the pitch to try and reach his goals. He's going to be special."​

Yes, you're right about the positions he was playing at Lyon. We don't need a striker of his calibre right now.
