At no point have I stated otherwise. Just that it’s far more important to get the right RW than another midfielder. Going round in circles now.
I don't think you understand what's the project of the club when Ole took in charge and how it was planned. The project is about build a team to compete and it never be completed in two summer window. RW, CB & improving squad depth are equally important in Ole's list to complete the project.

Some posters just dont see the big picture. They see a starting XI. There is a guy in the Sancho thread saying we have Greenwood on the right, and we dont need Sancho. I despair. We need minimum 18 good players, 4-6 that can rotate as squad options

Now you have tried to be condescending.

I’ve tried to put this to bed, it’s boring, and your post is pointless.

Let’s not use the word project, it’s not a project it’s a resetting of the clubs identity.

To suggest there aren’t priorities, is a ridiculous notion. You don’t have a list of things you want to achieve, and all of them having the same importance, that’s now how the real world works.

My opinion is that RW is a priority over midfield, your opinion is different. I’m not unhappy that DVDB is at Utd, and we need to wait until the end of the window to see what happens in terms of other transfers.

Don’t conflate me with other posters.

I never suggest there aren't priorities.

Your opinion is like Merson's opinion pretty much which is the argument. Not seeing the bigger picture & the situation.

Go back to my first post and I said I thought he had an arguable point - until he started taking about Sancho. Not that I agreed with him.

You’ve dragged this out, and you are not listening to what I’m actually saying. It’s boring.

Out.

Sorry to barge in but just wanted to say I agree that RW was and is more pressing than midfield (and probably any other position).

I suppose the club had various transfer aims and probably specific targets in a number of positions and with any luck the purchase of VDB has no bearing on whether or not we bring in an RW. If we had only one purchase then Sancho would be my choice but let’s hope there is the money and the will to get that one done as well.

The fact I'm listening to what you said, as I'm trying to tell you it's not just abut prioritising RW or certain position but it's about signing the right players on the right profile to improve the squad that available and still maintain the structure and also financially given that we are in corona years. If we try to force ourselves to do something we shouldn't do just to fill in RW then it's called panic business.

Oh Donny boy, the Reds, the Reds are calling,
From Stretford End you’ll hear them far and wide,
You’ve only gone and left defenders falling,
Thank Van Der Sar that Donny’s on our side

I feel a bit sorry for him as it seems he was disappointed the deal with Real Madrid fell through, he would have been good in here as we need players who can score or be a threat in the offensive. Anyway hope he can do well in Manchester United and Premier League.

He would have lasted 12 months at your club. He isn’t Galatico enough for your higher ups.

In his interview on Soccer AM he praised United on his arrival,
"They gave me the feeling of being home" he said.
Hope that the lad does well.

It might have been like that but I still think it would have been a good bet by the club to sign him instead of a bigger profile player like Pogba for our midfield since those type of signings can also go very wrong for our club.
