I think you’re misjudging the situation completely here, in no shape of form is Martial is seen as our no.1 even if fit, he’s actually the one who is going to be used as a rotation option. Cavani has cemented his places in starting eleven as Ole trusts him.If we can keep him fit he'll be a great rotation option. I still think we need a proper striker as I don't think Martial has proven himself reliable to be our no.1 no. 9
A fair share of Argentina's rich and famous moved to Uruguay in May 2020, many permanently and transplanting entire family units of close relatives as well. Now getting vaccinated here while their mates have to find ways to fly to Miami for a J&J.When you're rich most of these things aren't a problem.
Shows how much people watch outside of United.I think this is the first time I’ve ever opened this thread. The entire first page is an absolute embarrassment. Tbf I’ve said a few times that the meltdown following the last summer window was a low point for the caf, IMO. Worst I’ve seen it on here.
I have noticed that the caf usually are terrible when it comes to transfers. The players who had little fanfare are usually better signings and the players that the caf hype usually are busts.I think this is the first time I’ve ever opened this thread.

Sancho depression. I think most don’t think about how players fit or work in a team/system. They just brand Name no matter if it doesn’t suit our play. I think he was always going to be a solid player because he is at hart a hardworking player who gives everything and wants to win with no ego who just happens to be blessed with excellence movement and an eye for goal.I think this is the first time I’ve ever opened this thread.

Hahaha tag line checks out!
Is Forlan a close friend of Cavani? We need him to do his job in making sure Cavani stays.Indeed.
We should get agent Forlán on the case. He was always very pleased and proud of the fact every now and then while watching us play he would still hear "Dieeeeegooo, oh oh oh oh".
I've no doubt last night he must have thought he wants another year of that. Scoring six against AS Roma is a tad more satisfactory than six against Jorge Wilstermann or Once Caldas.
Any chance there is a parade in Manchester if we win the EL?
Tbf the meltdown was partly caused by Man Utd. They can't come out and harp on about a cultural reset, signing young players and then sign one of the oldest top level professional footballers who had been available for a year - at the last minute.[

To be fair I wasn’t against it but I wasn’t fully for it either. Sick of the stopgaps and the owners leaving the managers lacking top players in crucial positions going into a busy season and fans still expecting us to win everything. It’s fair to say Cavani has surpassed my expectations but I knew he’d score goals here if he could get fit but I also thought he’d be on the bench and martial would be doing the business… He’ll be like a new signing again next season
Edit yeah also Sancho comedown was certainly a factor in the jerking of knees. If we’d just gone and got Cavani straight away like it was an actual plan and we weren’t just grabbing the last available good striker that was going cheap. The optics were pretty poor but luckily for us we’ve had some major luck with signings since Ole came in and Edi is another big hit
i agree but by the same measure I was arguing yesterday with a poster who reckoned Matic and Mata should also be kept around to guide the younger players. I don’t feel it would be important because they don’t play enough to guide the players and they get about 300k between them a week for not a lot of game time. You can see Cavani geeing Greenwood up the whole time. It’s a totally different thing if you’re leading on the pitch.Tbf the meltdown was partly caused by Man Utd.

With hindsight Cavani's makes sense. The young players need experience around them, so they can learn to become the best. Those old of us to remember 1996 also know it's those experienced players that are ultimately relied upon in the big moments, while the youngsters are learning.
I was fuming when we signed Cavani and I admit I was wrong. He may not be a big success next season, but like Cantona, hopefully his influence will be felt for years to come.
Well, they played together at two World Cups and won our (record) 15th Copa América together. He sure will have checked with him before moving and Diego was actually raving about Ole and our fans on Marca very recently.Is Forlan a close friend of Cavani? We need him to do his job in making sure Cavani stays.
He is perfect for both. He is at am age where playing 2 times a week is unfeasible. He is happy to be an option from the bench while still possessing incredible stamina and workrate on the pitch. And also producing the goals.There's definitely a fine line between having an older player around who can impart knowledge versus someone who is blocking youngsters coming through. It's the job of the coaching team to teach players.
A first team player should be judged on his contribution to the results on the pitch. Cavani's main job is scoring and should be judged on that. Anything else is a bonus.
Yeah remember that being part of the conversation around the time LVG took over.What’s funny is supposedly Ed Woodward wanted to sign him years ago and the Caf were saying he’s shite
At one point in time if you asked me about Ibrahimovic and Cavani I'd have told you both of them were useless, citing how Zlatan couldn't score against English teams and the amount of chances Edi missesAs much as I love having him here now, I just wish we could have experienced him in his prime. Such a waste him having played second fiddle to Ibra in a farmer's league for so long. Sublime talent.
the quotes themselves from OGS are not as positive as the headline. It’s been a pretty difficult year for him. Hopefully games like yesterday show him what the club is about.Just seen it. Fantastic news if true. Already been said but the money can be spent elsewhere. RW hopefully
