    Good stuff, any minutes we would have given to him should go to Tuanzebe

    Feel like this one might bite us in the arse. He's one of our better squad players and leaving ourselves with Tuanzebe and three crocks seems rather silly. Oh well.

    Probably would have preferred him over Jones and Rojo, but oh well. No complaints.

    Time all of them are moved on. Good luck to Smalling over there, if the deal is finalised. Always seemed a nice bloke/pro.

    Finally all the clowns who keep saying “but he’s a good defender” have one less thing to shout about.

    Wow didn't expect that. Would've rather Jones/Rojo gone before him and Bailly too but suppose injury keeps him here until Jan at least. Clear out is going well though.

    wow that came out of nowhere.

    I like it a lot though. Tuanzebe should be #3 on the depth chart, so letting Smalling go makes sense. Rojo next.

    Excellent. Should've let him go ages ago, good to see it happening now. Rojo and Damian next please.

    Wants to play and Roma are good club, I'm happy for him. Him making way but Rojo and Darmian still rattling about is a shame.

    Increasingly difficult to accuse Solskjaer of failing to clear out the dead wood in the squad.

    Our club can't continue to get rid of our favourite scapegoats. We'll have nobody left to blame.

    They couldn't find a buyer for Smalling in England when Tyrone Minge went for 25M?

    He'll do well at Roma.

    Hopefully we can rid ourselves of one of Rojo/Jones/Bailly next.

    Stuff like this makes me think Ole might be the right man for the job. He can't clear everyone out in one window but it's obvious he has identified who needs to go.

    He'll do well in Serie A.

    Let him leave on a free, when we're getting a 3m loan fee for him?

    It's odd, we refused to loan him to Everton if there's any truth in that because we wanted to force a sale and now we've loaned him to another team. Maybe the board are really scared that Everton could finish above us if we strengthen their overall squad? :lol:

    Kind of joking, kind of not...

    I would prefer JonesBailey to go than Smalling. Smalling is either our 2nd or 3rd best centreback behind slab head.

    In the grand scheme of things though 3m is a drop in the ocean. Who's paying Smalling's wages in this deal? Do they have an obligation to buy him or in 12 months do we have to try and farm him out again? All those things considered is the 3m really worth it?

    Quite surprised no other club bought him if he was available.

    Oh well bye bye Mike.

    Yes, but we needed to bolster our squad in other areas not only get rid of players.

    I like it, but it puzzles me that Ole wants his CBs to be good on the ball while we serve up a first XI midfield of McTominay and Lingard...
