Forget about June, June is always boring.

Let's look forward to July. I reckon We will sign at least 5 players and sell/loan out 9 players in July.

Incoming - FDJ, Malacia, Eriksen, Martinez, Tielemans
Out - Telles, Jones, Pereira, Henderson, Williams, Martial, AWB, Tuanzebe, Chong

Its going to be very busy month at Old Trafford.

Fair enough but fans and posters expecting or thinking 5 or 10 players should be sold isnt the same as what manager thinks. Maybe he thinks he can get something from some of them and not listen to offers for all 10 or 15 of them. Either way we seem to be going in circles here.
Not 5 or 10:
Poster I quoted literally wrote about 10 to 15 players needed to be sold.

I entirely agree that it isn't going to happen all at once, but I don't think there's any doubt that the club understands that a big clearout is needed.

I have visions of Lingard sneaking onto the plane as we leave for pre-season, sitting at the back in shades, throwing out the odd shape, hoping no-one notices.

Why do you think they're working slowly?
What evidence is there to point otherwise? I love how you guys seem to think you're being level headed by thinking the rest of the fan base needs more patience.

Because it’s true just calm down, the FDJ deal is complicated and we’ve just signed Malacia.

Considering we leave to go on our pre season tour next week it’s being nothing more than a utter shambles. Get the business done early ETH said……

All the links are great, but we really need at least three or four bodies in before flying out for pre season. People shouldn’t get pelters for saying as much.

They’ve been playing the same record from before the window ever opening. That’s why they are. Justifiably so in my opinion

Of course they have; there is no good will left and that is the fault of the club. If people were actually hopeful then they would say as much.

I’m not particularly excited about next season at all, and I’ve seen nothing done in the transfer market (yet) to alleviate the huge concerns I have regarding the quality of the squad. If and when that changes then I’ll call that spade. I assume that others are in a similar position to me.

I guess some of them are and others are just moaners no matter what. The same people will keep changing the narrative to suit them and will be the first to moan when we drop our first point(s)

I just don't know what to do with myself

Us guys? What does that mean? Surely you realize that speed and timing of transfers are dictated by more than willingness of the buying club. And what evidence would you like? I think its good if the club tries do buisness quietly if possible.
