Maybe I sound like a blind supporter but I do trust Ole. Till now he has us very good players (barring James maybe) who have been great assets for the team, combined with good attitude.

I think we can do away with the need for a RW for another season if we don't get a Sacho-like player.. Greenwood is there and if we get another AM we could even play Bruno out on the wings. Especially if we invest in a good full back to provide the width.
Playing Bruno on the wing would be such a waste. Hopeful we get the player we need in Sancho rather than shoehorning players in positions they don't fit like happened in the past under previous managers.

not sure i understand some saying no RW needed. We literally have no cover for our front 3. With this jampacked season need more quality or we gonna be screwed. We have a pretty decent sized scouting department, at some point they need to scout more targets. Swear we might as well let go half of them and just get one or two of us with Football manager, because we could do pretty much the same amount of work.

Probably as a precaution because he recently travelled abroad?
No since that trip he has trained with the squad.

Edit he also played on Wednesday.

I'm sure it's nothing. But it wouldn't be because he travelled abroad because he played in the friendly the other day didn't he? So he was obviously fine integrating with the squad then.

We all love United
If he’s really training alone, it’s a very promising sign. Maguire was training alone days before we sealed the deal with Leicester

Can't wait till the next reports where he will be eating alone too, then you know it's so on...

I think in this situation you have to seriously ask whether Sancho is worth what Dortmund are asking.
In all honesty, no way. 75 - 85 absolutely max.

To pay more than that is immoral.

I would wait atleast one more year before saying anything about Ole's record on transfers.

Folks on this group are reading that one tweet that agrees with their belief that Sancho is coming, even though it has been reiterated multiple times that he won't leave. Haven't seen a transfer where multiple sources related to the selling club have confirmed he won't be leaving. Admit it lads, this one is down the drains for the time being.

We simply can't. Have you seen how dead the team looks? Next season is going to be an insane slog, we have to reinforce the team in that position, it's not a maybe its a must.
We do need to reinforce but, next season but, even bringing in Sancho, Ole is going to have to use the rest of the squad better. After the restart we were desperate to make top 4 and that front 4 played way too much. There are options we can use like start Ighalo and play any of the other 3 along side him, resting 1 of the 3. He can even play a diamond with Bruno at the top and Pogba on one side and Fred/McTomminay/Matic taking the other 2 spots

We won't make it through the season if Mata/Lingard/James also don't get their fair share of starts. They don't need to be world beaters to play a good role next season. Last season when we had Martial / Rashford out at times, we literally had 1 match winner on the pitch - when those guys were starting often, we were depending on them to play a huge role. At the very least now we'll have 3-4 match winners at any given time. Getting Sancho or another top quality player obviously just helps that much more.

Except perhaps Aubameyang and Dembele who, incidentally, both left the same club we're dealing with now after similar posturing.

Where does this thread rank among all time transfer failures, if sancho doesnt come?
For me personally, it’ll be top three.
First one being Ronaldinho, and I think Sancho will claim second, right before Thiago.

No it's not. It's an influenza virus - hence the name.
It's caused (the flu) by an influenza virus strain. My mistake...but the point is, there are other coronaviruses in the world, and this one has no guarantees on how a vaccine with help and if it will evolve. A vaccine may not be the cure all to this situation and how it impacts mass crowd gatherings and sporting revenue streams from fans is extremely unknown.

We'd be committing the ultimate fecking seppuku if we actively neglected that RW again, particularly after getting top 4 by the absolute skin of our teeth. People seem to have forgotten that us getting CL literally came down to the last day?! We need serious bolstering! Period! Fin!

What I don't get is why are we briefing Sanchos wages being an issue. Makes no sense to tell fans Sancho is being greedy unless we are doing it as an excuse if we don't get him

Also clearly wages aren't a problem since Romano and Falk said it. And today proved Romano is more reliable for us than the British press.
