Just having a look at Ed002's list of targets from a couple of months ago and noticed this on AWB:

'Aaron Wan-Bissaka (RB) MU are interested and want to buy AWB but the £70M asking price is well beyond what the value him at'

So United have paid £25m less than the original asking price (with £5m in add ons), it is almost as if taking a little bit of time to get the best deal is the right way to go about the transfer window. We all go mad when the club doesn't do the right things but on this occasion it looks like they have played an absolute blinder.


1.) 26 Jun 2019 15:13:57
Fair analysis GDS.

2.) 26 Jun 2019 16:10:59
£50m seems like a hell of a lot to pay for a RB with one season under his belt for Palace (who focus on defence) .

He looked good, but isn't that what Dalot was for? Surely we should be spending that money on experience to enable Dalot to come through?!

Palace are still laughing all the way to the bank here, but I agree a year or so ago we may well have just paid the stupid fee plucked from Utd dream land initially. Doubt any other clubs would pay £50m for AWB, let's hope he's worth it.

I would certainly not say the club have played an absolute blinder here mate, much rather the like of Cancelo for that type of money personally.

3.) 26 Jun 2019 16:13:11
Stop talking sense GDS2!

4.) 26 Jun 2019 16:37:31

Each to their own, I'd rather pay that kind of money for someone who we know will want to play for us and has played well in the EPL previously. AWB was the main target (whether he was the one you wanted or not) and we have got him for much less than his original asking price, seems a good thing to me.

Dalot can play both sides as well as further forward on the right so gives us a lot of options, AWB and Shaw won't play every game, can't really complain about improving the squad.

£50m might seem a lot but it really isn't these days, Zaha looks like he might be going to Arsenal for £80m as well and we could receive £20m of that transfer, so I am sticking with the blinder.


Sorry mate, just not one for being toxic, never have been.

5.) 26 Jun 2019 16:45:56
Good post GDS. I actually disagree Beast. Cancelo is a great player going forward but he's been a shambles defensively, hence why Allegri wanted to sell him. I see he is still for sale as well so I do see him potentially going to City. Think he fits pep's mould better anyway.

Sure £50m seems a lot for RB with one year of experience. However, I guess that is the premium you have to pay for young British talent. He is brilliant defensively, he has topped the stats in most categories defensively for full back in the league. He can improve going forward, but he is exactly the type of signing United have made in the past. He is young, talented and seems to be a disciplined young lad. He fills a problem area for us and if we can get 10 good years out of him then it will prove to be excellent business. I am very pleased with the signing.

6.) 26 Jun 2019 16:52:08
Totally agree Beast. £50m for a player who has had one good season is ridiculous, and i would not call that a "blinder". In fact, we've paid £20m more than we should.
Also, you made a good point that Dalot was bought to be our RB and we needed someone with experience while he matures.

7.) 26 Jun 2019 17:17:37
Beast, don't worry. it's none of your money.

I wish everyone would forget about money as none of us have a clue 😂.

8.) 26 Jun 2019 17:39:56
It is a lot of cash for a young lad with 1 year under his belt, no England call up infact not a definite starter for the u 21s .
But it is what it is, if he plays well people won't care what he cost .

Dalot will play further forward this season.

9.) 26 Jun 2019 18:07:46
Cancelo gets sent off all the time in my FM game. He's a flippin liability. We should steer well clear of him.

10.) 26 Jun 2019 18:20:18
I can see Dalot playing Infront of AWB on several occasions this season. You'd like to think with two full backs, one being the best defensive full back in the league last season, our right flank will be near unpenetrable.

11.) 26 Jun 2019 19:00:51

{Ed004's Note - Give me 10 good men...}

12.) 26 Jun 2019 19:11:10
Cheers MulamNO, I know it didn't look right. I was only saying to ken the other week that I was dyslexic and he didn't believe me due to the sometimes large posts I write. 😂.

13.) 26 Jun 2019 19:34:06
I have a feeling dalot will be moved forward and the right side could look that way for years to come. There's not many better crossers in our squad if any.

14.) 26 Jun 2019 19:46:21
Agree with good 100%. I think ole likes him more forward he's tried it a few times plus he can cover both right and left of defence. Dalot could be a very useful player next season.

15.) 26 Jun 2019 22:33:00
City paid more for their RB who recently spoke to reporters after signing a new improved CE. In the Interview Mr Walker told the reporter " When i was growing up it was my dream to play for this great club, I am now here and want to win for the fans ". I taught he was a spurs fan growing up.

16.) 26 Jun 2019 23:50:31
I would imagine that dakot will be 1st chiice cover at rb and lb which should guarantee him at least 30 starts a season and also possible cover further forward on the right. So like a few have said above i think he will have a maggot role to play and in all likelihood will be in 85% of match day teams or bench if he stays fit.
I think the same will apply to mctom.
Key players who i'm sure will feature regularly.
Ive given up on the cost of players. If he is here and played well for a dozen years it will be looked at as a snip. If not he will be deemed as too expensive.

17.) 27 Jun 2019 00:18:20
Agree Ken. Wasted money is really only on poorly scouted players who just dkn't work out, or players that are so grossly over priced that it becomes a stick to beef them with.

I don't think this value is either of those, but only time will tell. I certainly think he slots straight into our starting line up, which is a good start.

18.) 27 Jun 2019 09:05:29
Excellent recruitment imo.
A proper RB who can defend and a proper winger with electric pace.



26 Jun 2019 12:58:32
I think the most comedic thing about the Ndombele overreaction is that he is Spurs first signing since January 2018, imagine if we had done the same what the reaction would be!

Looks like we have the AWB deal sorted, good deal nice and early in the window, fingers crossed for a few more of the targets Ed002 mentioned, 3 or 4 of them and we really are in for a good season if the players gel.

Two young British, quick players signed so far who will hopefully hit the ground running and join some of our talented youngsters to start the rebuild.




17 May 2019 20:09:10
Can't help but think Solskjaer is going to end up 'taking one for the team' if the rumours of who we are looking to sign are true. We would have a good young squad next season but will likely not challenge for much but play some decent football with hopefully young players who want to play for us and will put in 100%. We would then see whether the fans are actually happy with decent football and effort or whether results do matter.

Unfortunately the fans will demand immediate success and I can see Solskjaer being the fall guy that leaves a much better, younger team than he found.


1.) 17 May 2019 20:34:15
you make a good point GDS. i was thinking something similar today looking at the youngsters we seem to be targetting. perhaps ole is setting up or building a young and hungry squad for the next manager to reap the rewards. just a thought.

2.) 17 May 2019 20:50:43
I think the vast majority of fans would be OK with a younger squad that plays decent football and has heart. We are in no position to challenge for major honours at the minute, but if there is a clear direction we are heading, I don't think the fans would object.

3.) 17 May 2019 20:53:04
We have had 6 season of dross with 0 plan.

If the past few days are anything to show is that it actually looks like we are planning for the future

Young exciting players have been something we have been crying out for

Maybe ole is actually PLANNING for the future and us as fans will just have to support the boys and see where it takes us.

Take ajax for instance there first title in 5 seasons. That's the blueprint to aim for.

4.) 17 May 2019 21:14:39
Young players need top quality experienced players to guide them. The reason the class of 92 excelled was that there was a bedrock of experienced players already in the squad.

Ole is right to be looking toward young players, but if he drops them into our current squad it will be a disaster. It’s nothing to do with expecting immediate results, it’s about building a team in the right way.

5.) 17 May 2019 22:24:00
“Decent football and effort or whether results matter”. Why can't you have both, city and liverpool most certainly do.

Obviously just focusing on results is foolish as there is a process involved and we all know from the past years results gained from poor performances is unsustainable.

But the trend of modern football is showing you can both aim to play entertaining modern football and get results.

6.) 17 May 2019 22:44:52

You certainly can and that is obviously the long term aim.

People on here would be happy seeing a plan and seeing that Ole has improved the squad and we are building something but if you look on social media some of the comments about the players we have been linked with today are already embarrassing. That was my point where I’m not sure people will be happy with 2-3 years of playing well but winning nothing and Ole would end up leaving before any of the plans come to fruition as fans want success immediately.

7.) 17 May 2019 23:41:41
Gds. That's an interesting one and a topic that can split opinion but there is a grey area.
If there is signs of progress and continual improvement and excitement and entertainment then that will be enough to please a decent annoys of fans. However the caveat i would but on that is that we must be competing to win trophies in year 2 and 3.
If there is entertainment and continual improvement that should mean competing to win trophies.
No matter what happens i will always support the club but i won't be a happy fan unless we are competing to win the best trophies.
I can compare the 70' and 80s against the 90's and 00's.
I didn't love the club any more when we were winning than i did when we were also rans during the 70s and 80s. But i was a happier fan for the next 2 decades that's for sure.
The one thing for sure is that ole knows that and he desperately wants that.
Can he pull it off?
That's the million dollar question. Ole is a long shot. He has a hell of a job in front of him.
Very much like last summer we will know a lot more about what his chances are when the window closes.
Can he move the players on that he wants, and can he keep the ones he wants. Van he get the ones he wants.

8.) 18 May 2019 04:19:29
I wouldn't expect too much next season, I remember when Liverpool went with this strategy it was a disaster.

9.) 18 May 2019 08:07:49
I see someone thinks we are planning now.

Planning would be putting a DOF in place before appointing a manager, not the other way round. Now we have to try to find one who agrees with the manager and his way of doing things. Planning on players, now we have taken a different direction again, back to what SAF did, but OGS doesn’t have the leadership or managerial ability of SAF to make it work. We are trying to make what happened in SAF early years work again in 2019, looking backwards not forwards. That isn’t planning.

10.) 18 May 2019 09:30:33
Red man how do you know OGS has neither leadership or managerial ability, he’s been in the job 5minutes let him get his own players in get rid of some of the deadwood so that he can implement his own style (hopefully a lot better than it’s been) and then judge him.

I don’t mean judge him after he’s done that and only had 5-10 games with new players and system either. It is not going to be a short term process we have to think long term otherwise we will be where we are now also rans.

I’m not saying Solskjaer is the manager we need but I’m willing to give him time to do the things he needs to. I hope he’s ruthless and not a boardroom puppet hopefully he delivers.

11.) 18 May 2019 10:33:35

If OGS had leadership he wouldn’t be trying to be a clone of SAF, he would show his own style and path, he would lead from the front. You would also not have players like Rashford allegedly questioning our future path with Ole (something I don’t agree with him doing but it is symptomatic of the issue) . We wouldn’t hear nonsense like not using the managers car park space. After the Cardiff debacle, SAF is said to have said to OGS, what was that, a leader would not accept that in front of others. As a manager I expected him to impose a style, a pattern he hasn’t, does he have one? 20 plus games and we have no idea. If it was all about running he had the option to put younger legs in but didn’t, he made selection errors, substitution errors.

We gave him the job based on 10 games but now can’t judge him on the next 10. I may get it wrong on him but my strong instinct is that this mess is going to get worse by doing the usual sentimental United way and standing by him, not based on his past record but because he is a playing legend. At other big clubs he wouldn’t have been given the job and would have been dismissed for the end of season performances but United cling to sentiment.

12.) 18 May 2019 09:21:27
Are we already making excuses for Ole to fail.

13.) 18 May 2019 10:59:18
Lot of allegedlys and rumours in that post, Red Man, even for you 😁.

14.) 18 May 2019 10:59:41
No Singh, I’m being realistic, I think if who we are linked with is the plan we will be a force to be reckon with again in 2-3 years time, just not sure the majority of fans will allow for that gradual improvement, as your post probably proves to me to be honest.

15.) 18 May 2019 11:17:47
Gds. W if we are competing to win then the majority will be happy.
1 of Liverpool or spurs will win nothing this season. Both sets of fans will look back on what's was a great season and be happy with their lot. Even if its tinged with a little disappointment.
We have to be competing to win trophies by end of 2 seasons. We must be entertaining and we must have a team that plays with Psion desire and structure. We want a team that resinates with the fans and a team that represent the fans.

16.) 18 May 2019 13:53:51
Gds, we need to buy players who want to play for the badge. It's a cliche, but it's a fact. Non of us will be thinking we'll be challenging for the league, but we should be favourites for a top 4 finish, if we invest wisely and had a top manager.
I loved OGS as a player, but in all honesty, I'm not confident that he's got what it takes to put us back where we want to be. The appointment of Mike Phelan is mind boggling in it's stupidity. Mr Phelan has zero tactical nouse, United played the worse style under SAF when Phelan was assistant. He's a dour character, and was dour as a player.

So, i don't think OGS will take one for the team, but the unfortunate fact is that he'll be shown to be out of his depth at handling players and tactical structure against the top teams. The battle for top 4 will be much hotter than this year, but we're United, and we need to be challenging the top 2 and certainly getting into the top 4. Whether OGS/ Phelan are the right pairing to achieve that remains to be seen.

17.) 18 May 2019 15:24:37

The problem is we can never predict the future and what if these young players turn like the ones we currently have.

We are talking about the next 3 years or more and what if they fail then we are going to be in another rebuild. This rebuild isn't going to stop unless we change the structure of the club and we get rid of those who have been making the decisions in the last 6 years.

We need a strong manager and i don't think that is Ole. Its a multi billion pound company and the people who are making decisions they are getting paid handsomely and in return we expect the best.

Moyes was a Fergie's and got no backing.

Van Gaal got the backing but again the toxic fans got rid of him.

Mourinho a decision made b3cause of the toxic fans and because City hired Guardiola.

Now onto Ole which again is a decision to keep the fans happy and keep them quite for a bit as Ole used to play for us.

I dony see any other club of our size across the world make decisions like this.

The other day i heard that United want to hire people and run the club like a family but i am sorry if you want to run a club like a family then you need everyone on the same page but they are clearly not based on our previous 6 years.

I hope Ole succeeds as i don't have nothing against him but i just don't think it will happen if he is taking advice from others and that means to be Ole isn't in charge they are people above him.

I think it was Bobby Charlton who was against Mourinho which is ridiculous how is he even having an input of how the club is running.

This isn't a question of showing r3spect to legends or past managers as respect is a different and running a club to be successful is different.

This isn't a corner shop that we hire people just because they are our uncle's son or daughter this is a Club that i pay to watch the game thay i pay for my Bt channel/ Sky channel/ NBC and this is a club that i have visited a few times at Old Trafford to watch the game.

In return we expect a clear plan and we clearly don't have the balls to follow any plans becuase as soon ad the club perform badly then we just change managers and start again.

You are telling me that i am. against Ole but its not being against Ole its more to do witht the person who decided to appoint Ole when he clewrly said we will make a decision at the. end of the year so again that was a plan which he didn't follow and went back on his words and hired him because of the fans so he save his job.

We have no plan and i agree with RedMan who has been telling us for the last 5 years that the club has no plan and with no plan or. idea the club is going to continue to fail.

I just hope. this time we give ole the chance and let him buy the players the club needs and then hire the next manager which will suit the players he has bought but based on past experience i don't think that will happen.

We are going to end up getting rid of Ole and then the next manager will be hired wanting to play a different style and then he isn't going to like the players we have and he will want to buy his own players and then we will again be talking about the same thing which we are curently doing today.

It is a never ending cycle unless we hire the right people who are going to choose a style of football nd hire a manager based on the style and then we might get somewhere.

One question do you really think the football will change enxt year after apointing Phelan has a similar style of play to Mourimho which is based on defensive style of football.

If we were really going to play the type of football we have for last 3 months then why did we sack Mourinho was that because he was challenging the hierarchy of the club and the ambition.

I don't see much difference in what mourinho was doing and how Ole has been playing so why did we sack Mourinho was it just to please a few fans because he was challend Utds ambition.

The truth hurts and whe need to swallow our pride and start again and not make decisions on short term but think long term.



20 Dec 2018 12:54:43
I am already seeing people moaning about the management decision before he has even taken a training session which worries me, this league season is pretty much a write off I think we all agree on that so let's try a few things and see what happens, get behind the club legends that are in charge of the club and hope they get the players playing how we want them to.

If not then we rebuild with a whole new fresh start in the summer. I tell you one thing, I am looking forward to Saturday and Boxing Day much more than I was 3 days ago, and that's not just because I found out my Aunt isn't coming for Christmas dinner this year!


1.) 20 Dec 2018 13:46:51
Agreed GDS2, there is a little feel good factor from appointing a club favourite, and generally lifting the cloud. I don't think everything was Jose;s fault and fans need to understand we are a long way from where we want to be, but a lift in mood might be the first step. I hope everyone gets behind Ole and the players now and has some patience and acceptance that we won't be suddenly a great team.
And finally a big thanks to the Ed's especially Ed002 who give us the best information you can find anywhere, and put up with all the nonsense, in mostly good humour.

2.) 20 Dec 2018 15:03:06
It's just baffling GDS, nothing more I'd love than to see OGS smash it because as a fan nothing would please me more.

But I just see it as another time where ed woodward has tricked fans. There are a lot of issues that we are messing up pn, so let's throw a club legend at the job and the fans will love it.

Nothing against OGS, just the disappointment of seeing yet another ridiculous play by the men in charge.

3.) 20 Dec 2018 15:47:49
You must admit gds it does seem a peculiar appointment, I will obviously get behind him and the team it seemed a bit crazy to me .

I saw a post somewhere yesterday that said we would all be pissing ourselves laughing if city sacked pep and bought kinkladze in and I suppose it's not that far from the truth.

4.) 20 Dec 2018 15:57:16
kinkladze? What a awful comparison, i'm not fussed about ole taking over but kinkladze is that the best you could do.

5.) 20 Dec 2018 16:12:48
If Pep was in 6th place, had been an absolute nightmare, sucked all the fun out of the game and the club needed a complete overhaul with new technical director and manager in the summer and a bit of time to sort it out and they decided to spend that time with a club legend in charge I would probably understand it just like I understand this. Kinkladze has no management experience so not exactly like for like.

Wasn't Guardiola a Barcelona legend who managed the reserve team before getting the main job? OGS has more similarities to him than Kinkladze I would say.

He wouldn't have been my choice, but Jose was my choice so what do I know? I would have loved to see Kieran McKenna have a go and I am glad he is sticking around, I would love to know what frustrations he had with Jose and whether anything him and Carrick did was listened to. The McKenna under 18 team was great to watch, exciting and fun, the complete opposite of this season. I actually look at OGS with the 3 behind him and think we could be in for a fun 6 months. If not then nothing ventured and the club will have had time to get the right setup in the summer.

6.) 20 Dec 2018 16:23:17
The point of the interim manager is to give the club time to get things right for the long term. Not just go for a quick fix. I think there will be a good response to Ole. He is a club legend, and he will be positive in his demeanor and his tactics. Looking forward to Saturday.

7.) 20 Dec 2018 16:51:04
Spot on GDS. I think we just need to get over the ole signing and just try and enjoy our football again. People need to stop reading into it so much. It seems we will go all out for Poch in the summer so this is a great opportunity for ole to unite, harmonise and lift the dressing room. It is also an opportunity for the players to express themselves a bit more and go out and enjoy their football and entertain the fans. With Phelan there to provide some much needed nous and experience, I believe we are in safe hands. Add McKenna and Carrick and we have a lovely blend of youthfulness and experience. Add to that ole who bleeds united, we now finally have someone who is ‘one of our own’ that many fans have been craving.

Instead of moaning I think we should be relieved Jose is gone. Most fans wanted it and they have their wish. We haven’t rushed into signing someone just because they are available. It seems we might just have a plan for once. Can’t we just get behind ole and see what happens? You never know he might just surprise a few. Even if he does great he is only staying for a while and that’s fine. I don’t see any issues with that. And with a much happier and confident squad, fingers crossed we have Poch walking through the door in the summer raring to go. Personally I’m very excited and just cannot see what the fuss is about tbh.

8.) 20 Dec 2018 16:51:12
Too many people missing the point that OGS is temorary because carrick has no licene to coach for more than a 12 week period. We are aslo looking at a DOF to come in. How could Blanc or ZZ come in at such short notice and how would that be good?

The names been thrown about. ZZ, Blanc, Poch are bound to be approached or interviewed (where applicable) in the coming weeks and months in a measured and professional manner we would hope .

Also I read yesterday another journo saying input from Carrick and McKenna has been generally ignored by JM (who knows if that's true) so let's see if Ogs/ Phelan/ Carrick/ mckenna and Butt to an extent can get us on an even keel again. Playing football.

9.) 20 Dec 2018 16:59:03
Sorry fzz maybe I should have used shaun goater.

I am not professing to know anything either gds, I don't and I also thought jose would win the lot with us .

Maybe all the optimism and joy have been knocked out of me the last couple of months I'm just not looking forward to seeing a guy I've always admired get absolute pelters from the fans or the press if things go awry.

10.) 20 Dec 2018 17:27:54
It’s always the case GDS. you just have to go on Twitter and see people writing of ole before we have even kicked a ball. We could appoint pep and people would still complain. I guess that’s the modern fan. You see these fan channels who would much rather stir up controversy and split a fanbase for likes and retweets by taking advantage of our current plight.

I must admit I wasn’t sure about ole as manager. But the more I think of it the more I believe it may turn out to be shrewd move. Bringing in Phelan is so integral as ole has someone with a vast amount of experience and nous. Moreover, it’s an opportunity to unite and harmonise the dressing room whilst getting the players confidence up and enjoying their football again. It also gives us time to restructure the club and really conduct our due diligence in our search for our next manager. It seems Poch is the target which I am buzzing about tbh. He clearly is not attainable so appointing ole as a stop gap is fine for me.

I am buzzing for Saturday’s game, which I have not been for so long. Let’s all pull together and get behind the team because I do feel we will start to see some more exciting football which is in keeping with the United way.

11.) 20 Dec 2018 17:28:10
Don't see the sense in the OGS appointment at all. The wrong guy has gone. Pogba AND Woodward should both have gone before Jose.

If these players wouldn't perform before why suddenly do we think they will now? There is no logic to that.

Pogba is all wrong for United and needs to be gone.

OGS is simply a popular ex-player, a fan favourite, a nice guy. what has he done as a manager at this level. for a club that prides itself on being one of the top 1-2 clubs in the world how can this appointment make sense? In no other line of work would this ever happen, NOWHERE!

All this does is give the club an excuse not to spend in January on what we need. because we don't have the right guy in place for the long term. terrible forward planning yet again, as we stumble from one poor decision to the next.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. same leadership presided over Moyes, LVG, Jose, OGS and now they will suddenly right the ship long term?

I truly hope they make the right appointments for next season. but that's my heart talking because I love watching Manchester United. but my head says this could be a long painful road.

Flying into Manchester from Boston tonight to be home with family in York and Glasgow. not been back in Glasgow for 15 years!

Best for the holidays to all.

12.) 20 Dec 2018 17:29:12
I am reasonably happy with OGS and happy to wait and see.
The potential dilemma as I see it is if we see an immediate dramatic improvement do we hail OGS as the conquering hero or do we finally come to terms with having spoiled brats who misuse player power. It will not a black and white situation (never is) but if we believe that it is predominantly the second, how do we feel about keeping them? Who would trade points on the board against the risks of the current nightmare recurring.

13.) 20 Dec 2018 18:50:05
OGS is in management what's wrong with you? its not even close. Give me Stuart Pearce nock nock and you have a deal.

In other words Stuart Pearce is a ex City player that has managed (see the link) .

OGS was brought in as interim manager till the end of the season. I don't see the issue with the appointment, can it really get any worse from where we are at this point in time, allardyce and pardew are still available so I think it can. This gives the club 6 months to find and appoint a new manager, at least they are not rushing it and just appointing someone cause they are available. Hopefully by the end of the season we will have a director of football in place and a clear choice who we can the pursue as manager. People wanted change, they have got it and still aren't happy.

Everyone should check out Mason Greenwood's goals at the weekend. He is scoring every week and despite being slightly too young at the moment if he continues to improve the way he has in the last 18 months he will be some player by the age of 20.

Obviously got the people calling for him to be in the team now because he can score past some 15 year olds, but I am happy seeing him grow at the right level, it does seem unfair on them young lads he's playing against though as he is a few levels above, good to see the future is bright in that department, hopefully he stays fit.

Yes, let him play in the reserves now, loan him to lower leagues after may be after 2 years.
Do not rush him into First team.

Had my eye on Greenwood for some time and wrote on here about him when i learnt he could take free kicks even penalties with either foot. He is close to the age when he either kicks on or stalls, perhaps like what we see from Rashford. It’s that point in a career where the best go forward, like Rooney and Ronaldo and will be too good not to play in the first team. Rashford could still get back on track but Greenwood has potential to be better

Keep your eye on James Garner as well, and look up an interesting article on him in one of the national newspapers last week.

Nobody is ‘worth’ what people pay for them but it’s not your money so doesn’t really matter. He improves the first team and is a good signings. You’d be the first to moan if we didn’t spend the money and Glazer’s pocketed it. Great window so far, more to come.

No I don’t think any club finds it easy these days, prices are inflated and not many English clubs need the money.

Wallace, congratulations mate you won the most pessimistic negative post of the day award. How you read that from Ole’s comments God only knows. The Ed has said where the interest lies and we will look to get players for the right price, I don’t really understand the problem.

Ed002 said in his first update a while ago that Milenkovic would be a good option, I’ve been waiting for the link and it’s finally here.

Greenwood is stating a case that he is ready and I’m not sure that’s wrong, I would be delighted if he steps up, he was amazing last year for the kids, he’s some talent.

For the first time in a long time I actually like some of our players and like the style of play, very exciting.

They certainly do this year, not as much chance as city though and it seems very strange to me that Liverpool fans are trying to bait us without winning it for 30 years. I’d expect them on here all summer if they won the league, the internet might have been replaced by something else by then though.


{Ed025's Note - i would say its 50/50 between them and city GDS, my life will be a living hell if they do win it though mate.. :)

Haha this is an amazing post Max, made me really laugh, the arrogance of a Liverpool team with 1 trophy in 6 years is absolutely genius, I can’t wait for this season to not be as good and the inevitable crash.

In what way are we tumbling down the ladder at a rapid pace? We have finished no lower than 7th for 30 years 😂

If you were not posting to wind anyone up you would have posted a balanced post pointing out the clear positives that we have in our team, the negatives have been done to death. What you posted was what you hope and are desperately wishing is the case rather than what is actually happening.

The arrogance and total ignorance from a fan of a team who hasn’t won a league title for 30 years is at best misguided, at worst hilarious.

I think pinning Shappy to the top was just a tongue in cheek comment but if it winds you up this much then I’m all for it.
