I wonder how much backlash he’ll received compared to others who have had family members talk about their United career to the media
Surely we need a CDM and Center back more than attackers? We need to change the way the team functions as a whole in setting up chances for our strikers. We just don't create enough. If we are set at the back, our midfield is free to move forward, and the same goes with a CDM. Then we'll set up more chances and our strikers will score.If this speculation turns out to be true, then it strengthens my belief that attack should be the sole focus of our attention this summer
FA have certainly played a part. Shouldn't have banned him..The FA sanction clearly didn't help him. He was hard done and maybe was not happy that the club never fully backed him by appealing their decision. Anyways, always felt this was short term solution. Now we have to sign a striker.
If FA were to drop that case, then Scouse love in media would have Luis Suarez case revisited.
His absurd treatment by the FA surely plays a part in his purported discomfort in England.
Hope he still opts for a further year but I wouldn't blame him if he wants to go back somewhere where he feels more at home.
If he does though then we should try to go all in for Haaland especially with City surely to be after him this summer. If that fails then bringing in Sancho while moving Greenwood to his natural position at the no.9 spot would be my move
He's been a standout professional by all accounts and I'll have very positive memories of his time regardless of what the future brings
Very true actually. Also how many big reputation players have we signed that want out almost straight away? Off the top of my head : Di Maria, Lukaku, Sanchez, Pogba and Cavani... do we even talk to these players about their motivations and futures before we sign them up? Cavani was clearly a panic signing (from both sides) even if it worked out well we need to stop with the short term fixes and build something sustainable. Is it they realise they don’t really like Manchester? Have they signed mainly because we are offering the biggest deal at the time? these are rich guys already who don’t need to do anything if they aren’t happy but by the same token they don’t need to come here in the first place either if they aren’t feeling it. Is it the atmosphere behind the scenes? Lack of drive from the owners seeping down? What is it? Probably a mixture of all the above?Well done Woody, give the number 7 shirt to a sub who wants out before the seaons over
Greenwood at ST maybe. Even with Cavani leaving we can't affort to buy a replacement, not in these circumstances.quotes from his dad. This is happening so more than likely.
Wonder what the next short term fix is going to be? The joys.
Oh come come, this is not remotely comparable.I wonder how much backlash he’ll received compared to others who have had family members talk about their United career to the media
i agree. Someone who is just as happy to assist could be the key to unlocking what we already have instead of making sweeping wholesale changes to the attack. Same with a DM, if Pogba stays that’s probably the only way to get Bruno and Pogba into a system that gives them the best chance of becoming an effective unit instead of just being random star names.Not too bothered by this, he's not been reliable enough anyway. It does leave us with a problem though. Haaland will be going to City so we either find another striker which is never cheap or easy or trust Martial and Greenwood and get a winger like Sancho. I think I'd actually prefer the latter.
