    We literally had Ronaldo and Rooney without needing to market ourselves as the new Borussia Dortmund.

    Calm your tits man, we've barely signed one player. Maybe the next 3 will be 35 year olds and you'll regret your post. Life can suck.

    Redcafe - "what do our scouts even do?"

    United - "here's a young, highly-touted player for peanuts"

    Redcafe - "not a big enough name mate, too young mate, unproven mate, Championship player mate"

    United - "OK.....who do you suggest?"

    Redcafe - Carlos Kickaballos mate, 18yo, plays for Huracan mate, watched him on Channel 5 Argentinian 2nd division highlights show when I got in from the pub last week....mint mate, top player mate, world-class talent mate

    Not that I'm indulging, but nah. People have a right to be pessimistic. They can see similarities between this summer and summers gone already. A lot of talk, a lot of media leaks to appease fans. £20m on Dalot last year, £20m on James this year.

    This current board and set up hasn't earnt the benefit of the doubt from fans yet I'm afraid. We've been too patient with them as it is

    the you can't win anything with kids was a fluke and it was also backed up with experienced seniors players like Bruce / Schmeichel / Irwin / Pallister etc who are club legends. Plus those "kids" were united through and through who loved the club and grew up in the United way.

    We're buying young kids yes, but they aren't United through and through and the senior players they need to pull them through in tough situations are Jones / Smalling / half-show Pogba and Young etc...none will be United legends and look like bottlers half the time.

    Love the idea, need to get winning senior players in too though IMO as well as hungry young kids

    Let's sign Courage Pekerson and Isaac Success and we got the trio. With Young and Lingard around forever we have the youth part covered :).

    My 14/15 kit says "Youth Courage Greatness". Why have we downgraded that to "Youth Courage Success"?

    I assume that since the club is waiting for the international transfer window to open, any new signings will be from abroad.
    Just an assumption

    They may be using the tagline specifically for this transfer. The next signing may have a different 3 words presented on that same shield.

    Woodward did say we were like Disneyland for adults....


    It was used specifically for the youth team then. This is the first time it has been used for the first team as far as I'm aware. Either that or Dan James will be going into the youth setup rather than the first team...

    "Youth, Courage, United" would be a much better slogan and also removes the risk of it being mocked in the future.

    From what I can determine, your average Redcafe poster wants us to sign the next Gareth Bale who is also the current Gareth Bale who is young and malleable but who is experienced and has done it at the top level. They also want us to unearth gems whilst at the same time, paying top dollar for 'name' signings.

    That's the joke.
    As much as I like the general idea, the fact we actually have this as a slogan is slightly cringeworthy.

    Cringy slogan.

    No problem with "Youth", the other two though is just... so fake.

    Yes better.
    Hmm, "Courage" there is off, doesn't fit at all imo, sounds like a sarcastic description of the current team.

    The idea is fine, but words themselves are empty.
