Bayern in for Lingard.
We've been had again as a fan base. Many could see the same patterns in late June and early July but got ridiculed saying it's too early, judge in August etc.
Once again this board hasn't properly backed this club and failed to give it's manager what it needs to do anything more than a top 4 challenge.
It's been clear for 6 years that is all they care about.
Anything anyone organises against them gets laughed at, but something has to happen if any of us want anything more than a top 4 spot being the expectation again.
What a shit show by Woodward and the board.
Never knew general transfer thread existed till now....Anyway, i am putting my muppet wishes here. We are only linked with 1 of these but all seem obtainable. Hope to see one attacker signed by the deadline...
Ziyech - CAM/RW solution, Left footed, available for 25m. Seems a no brainer to cover the right without breaking the bank this summer (aka #Sancho2020)
Werner - last year of contract, Leipzig desperately dont want him to leave for free next year. Previously said United was his prefered team in England. Available for around 50m
Zaha - Absolutely ideal if he was predominantly a right winger, available to United for 60m
Neres - Comfortable on both RW & LW, left footed, still pretty raw, but bags of potential, Ajax apparently want 50m
Neres signed a new deal today.
And he was the one we were linked with
We sorted the Defence.
We got rid of Lukaku who is not United quality.
But we have ignored serious work in midfield.
Unless there is a shock signing tomorrow.
I wont hold my breath.
I prefer not to sign anyone than sign Llorente.
I don't think it will force them out, unless it reaches a critical mass, but at least it's more dignified to oppose them. Which strangely gets called embarrassing. Even that banner last season, it spelled out the truth. And people here were echoing "so embarrassing"..etc.
The lack of ambition is most notable in not addressing the problem in how the club is run. It's not mainly down to spending figures. It's about the incompetence that's been evident from the get go.
Just arrived from work. Any signings coming today? Serious rumours?
This feels like the quietest deadline day of any summer transfer window that I can recall.
Probably because it’s not deadline day for any other league.
If Rojo is going for £25m and Lukaku for £75m, we've had a net spend of £40m. After last year's net of £50-60m ish.
Absolutely shocking. Top 4 is a long way off.
if Sunday is anything other than a win, this place is going to go wild, and I'll be one of them!. Ed has duped us again!
Like the majority of fans I feel we are a couple of signings short in this transfer window. However, I am optimistic about the three youngsters staking a claim for a position in the starting line up(greenwood, chong and gomez) not to mention tuanzebe still remaining part of the mix.
A starting line up of:
awb maguire lindelof shaw
greenwood/DJ gomez /mata matial
looks exciting on paper and should turn over most teams. At the back we are looking fairly solid for a change now. Hopefully the forward players with their youth, enthusiasm and athleticism will tear teams apart!
