When Jose left in January we briefed of a director of football, and a proper plan in line with clubs values. We hired Ole - it was meant to be temporary, he did a great job and then once he signed permanently a decline set in. He clearly papered over cracks, and then true reality of the squad set in. During this time where he himself said he was going to be ruthless, Jones, Young , Mata and Perriera signed new deals, whilst our star man Pogba wanted away. Were these extensions done with his agreement? Or is it purely Woodward? It was reported far and wide 5-6 signings would be made, we lost Fellaini, we lost Herrera and as of today we sold our top scorer over the last 2 seasons. We have an ageing Sanchez who upset the wage structure and was signed on a whim but have signed fairly young talents that seem to fit the way we want to play going forward as seen in pre season, we have in Greenwood and i would say Gomes aswell 2 players who look like they can step up. We have not made any flash piano playing, helicopter dropping in, stormzy rapping signings- so is this a sign of Ole rebuilding in his vision or is there a darker reality that the Glazers are limiting funds and Ole's vision is formed upon these restrictions? It's clear to see for all the positives from pre season that there a still gaping holes in this team- especially in Midfield, and we are now heavily reliant on a player with the most notorious agent in football who has admitted he wants to leave, a few years ago he was Agent P, we were linked with Griezman, we have also been linked with Dybala before this summers shenanigans. For all our failings on the pitch we looked like a drawer still for top players. We have a stadium that is archaic with no signs of improvement , and Spurs are now a bigger drawer. As fans we want to be back challenging for titles, but our owners clearly dont care about this- Ole loves the club , but it looks more and more like a yes man signing rather than a sign of change- how much longer does the Utd brand enable us to get the top players we would like to see to return us to former glories or is it a masterplan based on these restrictions where Ole is shaping a team rather than individuals playing in an XI - or is the answer somewhere between? It very much seems like the Glazernomics of Fergie's last few years are in play, but we don't have Fergie as manager. I know this is all a bit scattergun and not very coherent but i'm shattered and just genuinely concerned.
