Hi ed,
There are reports coming out the United have made a “concrete” offer for Gabriel.

Is there any truth to this? It was only yesterday that it was being reported he had chosen Arsenal as his destination.

I know you mentioned Napoli and City have a verbal agreement on Koulibaly and that if he does leave, Gabriel would like to go Napoli.

Seems he is highly rated with some top clubs after him.

Thanks.

Amz

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what a "concrete" offer is. Clubs rarely offer money for players without discussion. Manchester United spoke to those representing Gabriel last week. One offer from another side was withdrawn as they considered him a good player but immature and rather flakey. A decision on his future will soon be made.}


1.) 20 Aug 2020 20:51:39
Thank you ed.

Are you able to confirm the side which has pulled out.

{Ed002's Note - Spurs.}


2.) 20 Aug 2020 21:13:07
Thanks ed.


3.) 20 Aug 2020 23:08:08
It’s been mentioned that Gabriel’s preference would be to join Victor Osimhen. It sounds like Napoli are one of the teams that have made a bid, so it would make sense that he is on his way there. I’m just joining the dots, could be wrong.


4.) 20 Aug 2020 23:50:52
Bet he ends up at Arsenal.


5.) 21 Aug 2020 07:17:58
I wouldn't be surprised if these United links in the past couple of days is so they can run the "whoever beat United to key signing" headlines.


6.) 21 Aug 2020 07:32:15
Someone at Utd is hell bent on accumulating a very large centre back collection if this happens.


7.) 21 Aug 2020 08:57:15
Eric79,

Hopefully it means we will actually get a top defender at last.


8.) 21 Aug 2020 09:04:18
Mad hatter,

You mean til he has a poor game and everyone turns on him? That’s the usual process isn’t it.


9.) 21 Aug 2020 13:00:05
Discountdave,

That is true. But given that our CBs have been poor most of the season.
I have always felt Bailly should be olayed at the back. A run of games and confidence he would be great at the back.


10.) 21 Aug 2020 14:07:01
Not saying our defence has been great this season but it’s been no where near as bad as people would have you believe.

I agree with Bailly I think he can be good but the issue with giving him a run of games is that he can’t handle a run of games he’s far to injury prone.

I mean everyone raves about Tuanzebe but wouldn’t signing another CB limit his chances (admittedly he needs to prove fitness as well)


11.) 21 Aug 2020 15:34:23
MH, That's the problem with Bailly, he gets injured far too often.
Tuanzebe also missed tons of games through injury.
Jones, I have nothing to say.

So what we can observe is, there is really noone to genuinely challenge Lindelof and Maguire.


 

 

19 Aug 2020 18:33:03
Just my opinion but I think we will walk away from the Sancho deal and look to sign Grealish and a cheaper attacker like Brooks.
I would say the cost of those two would be similar to the cost of Sancho himself.
If this is the case then I don’t see us closing the gap on city or Liverpool and expect another battle for top 4. Not where we should be.

Amz

1.) 19 Aug 2020 18:57:07
Your forgeting agents fees, and his agents will be looking around €50M per Ed002.


2.) 19 Aug 2020 19:03:49
We'll have to see how it pans out. City and Chelsea seem to be making waves in the transfer market. Even if Liverpool stand still they will still finish comfortably above us.

The question is, is it worth blowing our whole budget on one player, or using that money to add much needed competition amongst the squad?

Ole hasn't quite got the grips of squad rotation yet. Probably the latter solution may be best considering his propensity to burn the first 11 out.


3.) 19 Aug 2020 19:13:10
Mumbles,

Unfortunately when we get linked with good players to improve the squad people moan about them as well, just have to look at social media today to see the embarrassing posts about David Brooks.


4.) 19 Aug 2020 19:33:25
Waves?


5.) 19 Aug 2020 19:39:06
David Brooks at the £20 million valuation would be a great addition to the squad.

The manager only fancies about 14/ 15 players which will cause problems over a long season with no break and injuries.

We need to be clever this summer. Money is finite and we don't know what's around the corner.

Someone like James Rodriguez to bolster the squad. Think a little outside the box.


6.) 19 Aug 2020 19:40:19
This isn’t a dig at Brooks or Grealish but my main point is I don’t see how this would help close the gap.

You do have to weigh things up and as Mumbles mentioned, it may suit Ole that he maybe has some better squad players to rely on. I think you can also spin that and ask should he be getting better out of his squad? McTominay and Fred are not bad players. Ighalo has shown he can do a job for sure but has then been criminally underused. Why did we sign him on until January?

Ultimately, if you improve the first 11 then you improve the squad.
City, Bayern, Barcelona, Madrid all have amazing squad depth and that is mainly down to consistently signing quality players for their first 11. They are not worried about who gets upset in the squad. They are worried about being the best. We say we belong in the bracket of super clubs but IF we do decide to pass on Sancho and go for someone like Brooks, what does that say about our ambition to get back to the top? Brooks definitely does not help close the gap.

We signed Daniel James last year and ended up using him as a first team player. A 15m kid who clearly needed to be bedded in. We then had to use Greenwood, who again is a kid. He is an amazing talent but I do worry how much pressure we will be putting on him to perform.

If it’s not Sancho then I want us to go out and buy someone with similar ability.

I have no idea how much someone like Brooks would go for but reports say 40m. Grealish is being mentioned as an 80m player. I think we could find better value elsewhere in Europe. The obsession with British players is a bit strange.


7.) 19 Aug 2020 20:11:12
Definitely not for me Amz. With Sancho you have a potentially world class player who improves first 11. With the other two you have squad depth. You don't close the gap buying average players for squad depth. Go for top players, that's the way.


8.) 19 Aug 2020 20:11:41
Eric, iv used what's known as an analogy. Iv taken Chelsea and Man Citys transfer activity and used "wave" to show the momentum and the fact they seem to be constantly moving.

Anything else?


9.) 19 Aug 2020 20:19:46
OP you just made up a hypothetical situation and from that decided we won’t finish top 4 😂

I think we will sign a quality RW, we’ve needed one for years. Interesting couple of months ahead.


10.) 19 Aug 2020 21:00:16
Wazza, Ed002 has confirmed the alternatives we are looking at.

I’m only giving my opinion on what I think would happen if we didn’t sign someone like Sancho and went down the route of Brooks for example.

I said it would mean we would still challenge for the top 4 as we did this year. Not sure where I have said we would finish outside the top 4 😊

You never know. We may! Top 4 went down to the last game this year and Chelsea have already improved with some top signings. I hope you’re right and we do sign a quality right winger but if it’s not Sancho then I’m not sure who is available that is the same quality as him.


11.) 19 Aug 2020 21:15:02
It's a tricky one to get right. Do you put all your eggs in one basket or spread the risk?

We could spend 120m on Sancho plus the 50m to his agent. Then in his first game he could do his knee in and be out for the season.

Then we would be faced with competing next season with the same squad as we had for this while all those around us have improved.

We have seen with Shaw, who was the most expensive teenager at the time, he took a year to settle. Then at the start of his second season he broke his leg and he has struggled for fitness ever since.

There comes a point where you decide a player is too expensive and too much hard work to pursue anymore. Both Real Madrid and Chelsea have already come to that conclusion with Sancho. I wouldn't hold it against our club if they came to the same conclusion.


12.) 19 Aug 2020 21:35:22
Brooks and Grealish and we will win the Champions League and League double.


13.) 19 Aug 2020 21:35:53
I would not want to be the one making the decisions when it comes to the this sort of money Shappy.

I just hope whoever we do sign is signed early so that they can bed in with their new teammates.

Not everyone will hit the ground running like Bruno.


14.) 19 Aug 2020 21:27:38
I think brooks will help close the gap as we can rotate him in 2/ 3 positions without a very large drop in quality. Becomes invaluable in a condensed season with champions league football. We can’t have the wheels coming off after 10 games with the first 11 unchanged.


15.) 19 Aug 2020 23:29:44
The ed has said we are interested in sancho and grealish .
Both would cost a bob or 2 . Not sure where all this, we have no money or can't buy anyone else if we buy sancho talk has come from?
But it seems to be the same people who have originally argued we shouldn't buy him.

I will be amazed if we only buy 1 player this summer.


16.) 19 Aug 2020 23:57:21
The argument was always Sancho and Grealish would cost upwards of £200 million. With the manager showing he can't rotate a team very well and is leajs to the press that the squad is poor, spending that much money on two players is ludacris.

Considering we've been deferring our loans and the uncertainty of what's around the corner. For half that amount of money and some sales, we could bring in 3 or 4 players that would help the manager achieve his goals next year. Because playing the same 11 week in week out and making subs on the 88th minute will probably get us till November before we're in the famous Ole downward spiral.


17.) 20 Aug 2020 06:56:37
Yes Mumbles. City signing Scott Carson and another defender who cannot defend certainly has caused shockwaves. Not sure that’s the correct use of the word analogy but hey ho. This is a football site not grammar school.


18.) 20 Aug 2020 08:16:02
jred its happened before with these idiots at the helm, moyes only got the wig, and jose only got fred,

both were sacked the same season.

we need quality players not just to make numbers to rotate.

we need a CB, CDM another CM, RW and even a striker.


19.) 20 Aug 2020 10:23:27
Bolger i will be absolutely amazed if we only sign 1 player .
I actually think we have bought quite well of late.


20.) 20 Aug 2020 20:39:29
Mumbles, you seem convinced that Ole just doesn't want to, or know how to, rotate the squad.

Look at the players he has to rotate with, players like Lingard and Andreas, who most of us can't wait to get rid of. In his position, would YOU be in a hurry to rotate players like Bruno or Greenwood for them?

I don't see the attraction of Brooks, he'd be an ok squad player, might become more in time, but just as likely he'll be the future Lingard. Buendia looks like a much better player IMO.


21.) 21 Aug 2020 10:18:36
Sancho will sign. I can’t see the club letting this deal collapse.


 

 

19 Aug 2020 17:16:11
Hi ed,
I have a feeling that United may cash in on Henderson to fund some transfers this summer.
Do you know if this is the case?
I cannot see him wanting to be a number 2 behind De Gea who has completely lost his focus over the last two years.
Thanks.

Amz

{Ed002's Note - That hasn't been the plan. He has unfortunately lost his chance for another season on loan at Sheffied United, so probably a loan elsewhere. If they make him available for sale then there will certainly be interest.}


1.) 19 Aug 2020 17:46:56
Ed i know it would be unlikely we would try and sell but would there be any interest in ddg.

{Ed002's Note - If he is not available then no.}


2.) 19 Aug 2020 18:25:40
Thanks ed.
I would be surprised if he’s happy to be loaned out again.


 

 

16 Jan 2020 15:19:19
Hi Ed002,

Are you able to confirm if United have made an approach to Lille for Soumare?

Thanks.

Amz

{Ed002's Note - Boubakary Soumare (DM/CM) - Soumare is being touted around the clubs that have money to spend and several have spoken with Lille but want the €60M asking price reduced. His "agent" (and I use the term loosely) says the player has no interest in joining Spurs or Arsenal but his client is the ideal replacement for Pogba or Kante and is attracted by the money available to players in England. Valencia, Real Madrid and Napoli are others who have been looking at him on a regular basis - but price is an issue. Until the summer Manchester City had an interest since he was at PSG and it was suggested he could fill the role of Yaya Toure well. Monaco saw him as a Bakayoko replacement but have stepped back. Watford pressed Lille in the summer but they would not sell. Brands wanted him at Everton but was forced down the Gbamin route by an advisor. Newcastle and Leicester also showed some intert that went nowhere. Not first choice but RM are talking about an offer of €40M plus a loan back. Probably one for the summer unless someone plays well over the odds.}


1.) 16 Jan 2020 16:44:11
Thanks for the detailed reply Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You ae welcome.}


2.) 16 Jan 2020 17:16:59
Ed, I've not seen much of Soumare aside from a game or two. Do you feel he is a good prospect and which of the club's after him do you feel he would be best suited at?

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - He is well liked - whether or not he would fit in at MU is a different matter.}


3.) 16 Jan 2020 18:20:51
Amazing in depth reply Ed002, that is why we only look on here for news and not in the fiction media.


4.) 16 Jan 2020 19:53:10
Inhope

The op asked him to confirm if we have made an approach for Soumare.
He didn’t answer yes or no so I’m personally none the wiser to the question.


5.) 16 Jan 2020 21:19:16
Chorlton from his reply you should assume our 'interest' is nonsense.


6.) 17 Jan 2020 03:46:05
You are missing the point redwishkey. You may well be right and our interest is nonsense. However he does then go on to question if he would fit in at United so you may well be wrong. So back to my original point I’m none the wiser.


 

 

31 Jul 2019 20:09:55
So the latest is that everything is agreed and we’re just waiting on Dybala to say “yes”

Is it just me or does this whole thing scream of the headlines “Deal collapses as Dybala says no to Manchester United” 😂😂

The media would have a field day with that!

Surely we wouldn’t be discussing this deal if there was no indication from the player that he wanted to move to us.

Amz

1.) 31 Jul 2019 20:29:57
Seems set up for that to happen.

I'm still unsure on this Lukaku / Dybala swap, on one hand Lukuku wants to leave, Dybala is a fantastic player and a straight swap means we will have a Lukaku replacement. It also rules out the possibility of United's amateurish transfer processes being used as they would be if we got the cash and had to negotiate with a club for a replacement.

On the other hand does Dybala actually want to join? Physically he may well struggle and is this just a throw of the dice on an opportunity that happens to have come up rather than a well thought out signing?

Interesting week or so ahead with the potential for Maguire, Bruno and Dybala as well as potential outgoings.


2.) 31 Jul 2019 21:05:10
I agree and think everyone else has said the same.
Dybala is an amazing talent but it remains to be seen if he can settle and if he can handle the league.
He’s a naturally gifted player and I think with the way Ole is trying to set us up in attack should suit him.
I hope Martial is our number 9. If Dybala is signed he can cut inside from right and use his brilliant left foot and Rashford from the left using his right foot.
Add to that the potential signing of Bruno Fernandes supplying these three, it starts to look very tasty. On paper at least.
If we keep Pogba and do the above, we really have the makings of a great side.

Ole went with 5 at the back against PSG and won. He then played 4 at the back against them and lost. He played 4 at the back against a Leipzig defence which is a bit shaky and won. He went 5 at the back tonight and lost.
He kept Fred on against PSG who was a red card waiting to happen.
Tonight, he takes off Telles to keep on Shaw who’s on a yellow and then subs off Shaw to bring on another left back in Williams. Honestly, I do not get the tactics or the team shape.
As soon as we lost to Istanbul you could see this happening. Another match where you’re left scratching your head at how appalling we were.
There is enough evidence this season that shows he’s not good enough. The league position is false. As were so inconsistent, we either kick on and fix our errors or we do the opposite. City is a massive game and the fixtures beyond that are not easy. We could easily find ourselves mid table again.

Right now, it’s only the league position keeping him in the job. Barce, Madrid and PSG will all have their eyes on Pochettino or Allegri for sure. I think we need to make a bold decision and bring Poch in. I’m not sure if he is the answer but he knows the league and has played against our players plenty of times.
He will have an idea of what to do and will bring structure, an identity and patterns of play.
Our players are severely lacking in coaching. It’s unbelievable the mistakes we make during matches.
Absolutely gutted.

Amz

1.) 09 Dec 2020 06:59:08
I'm not sure Pochettino would be a good choice. He lost his way in the end at Spurs. I think working with Levy didn't help.


2.) 09 Dec 2020 07:32:56
I think we all know Ole is on borrowed time and it is now just a matter of when he is let go rather than if. Under our current management, unless there is a catastrophic downturn in results, I suspect they will let the season play out before making a switch in the summer.
Even though I'm not a big fan of Poch, I wouldn't be too displeased to see him turn up in June with VDS as DoF, at least we might start to get some consistency and direction.


3.) 09 Dec 2020 08:36:27
I wonder what the managment wants. Perhaps they would like someone like Nagelsman, but I don't see him leaving, after they quialified further. Perhaps Ole will even make it through the season, and then be replaced with someone like Nagelsman.


4.) 09 Dec 2020 08:56:28
Mad Hatter if poch isn’t good enough who is?


5.) 09 Dec 2020 13:49:49
It is not whether they are good enough, are they the right fit for us.


 

 

03 Dec 2020 00:45:04
Hope everyone’s doing well here.

Been a while since I’ve posted.

Performance aside, which I thought was good, Ole proved that he will come unstuck and won’t ever be a top manager.

With Fred being a red card waiting to happen, I have no idea what Ole was thinking. I think everyone watching that would have been astonished that Fred was not subbed off at half time. He has to take into account the style of player he is to. He’s all over the pitch flying into tackles. It’s a no brainier. He has 5 subs to use and plenty of players to replace him with. The importance he’s placed on Fred when he has these options is astounding. There were so many opportunities to take him off, even before half time when he should have seen red. Unbelievable.

It’s frustrating because we were in the game and only need a point to get through. It’s the most simple decision you could make as a manager. We can say we missed our chances but they missed a fair few too.

On top of this, with all the tools he has, he doesn’t protect our players enough. Bruno plays every minute of every game. He’s got Pogba and VdB who can play the same role to give him a rest. He refuses to take Rashford off unless he’s injured and with 5 whole subs to use in Europe he doesn’t utilise the squad well enough.

I’m not confident going to Leipzig and we know they will be well up for it. Ole knows he only needs a point so how does he set up?

On to West Ham away which won’t be easy and I hope the players pick themselves up for that. It will be interesting to see who’s picked.

Amz

 

 

06 Nov 2020 13:17:08
With Ole’s preference for 4 at the back, I think we could try a 433 with Martial on the left, Cavani in the middle and Rashford on the right. Rashford strikes the ball well from right to left and delivers a really good cross from that position too. The way he strikes the ball will help him get good balls in to Martial and Cavani who are probably our better finishers.
I think Bruno needs to play as an 8 with VdB playing the same role. McTominay or Fred in the middle for the legs. Both Bruno and VdB have the appetite to win the ball back. We should be able to press well with the front 6 and retain a good team shape if our players can be disciplined. Bruno plays the role perfectly fine for Portugal and VdB was comfortable at Ajax playing any midfield role. We have plenty of options on the bench. It still baffles me that our coaches cannot find a system for all the talented players we have.

Amz

1.) 06 Nov 2020 13:34:46
Greenwood, rashford and martial front 3 was the best thing to come out of the previous season.

Why change it?

Also good luck getting the ball to the front players with fred or mctominay playing at the base of midfield.


2.) 06 Nov 2020 15:31:02
Fred/ Mctominay would only need to find Bruno or VdB. I think they’re capable of doing that if both play as an 8.
I’m not comfortable with the reliance on Greenwood. I also think we need to try something different given that we have so many options.


3.) 06 Nov 2020 15:49:28
Everton will put someone in Bruno to nullify his threat and they have a much stronger midfield than ours.


4.) 06 Nov 2020 17:12:13
I think Bruno is intelligent enough to find space. We cannot be over reliant on him either. The team needs to step up and be confident enough to play the correct passes.


5.) 06 Nov 2020 20:29:31
Bruni may be intelligent enough to either find space or create space for others. I am not sure the rest are good enough to take advantage of it.


 

 

04 Nov 2020 23:07:41
God it was awful, so awful. I really struggled to watch that in the end especially when all our players decided to lump it up to the box rather than playing some football. We played Maguire up top for god sake. We would blast Jose for doing similar things with Fellaini.

These players need serious coaching. They can’t just go out there and play freestyle street football.

Bruno was terrible again today. I’ve alluded to it before but it is almost every single pass that he tries something difficult. He has to pick his moments better. He can’t make it about himself all the time and needs to keep it simple, especially when we’re losing and need to maintain possession and pressure. Pogba was rubbish today again.

VdB was very tidy but it doesn’t help when he’s trying to pass and move and our players are trying ridiculous flicks into no mans land. Can’t believe he was subbed off.
Tuanzebe subbed off. Great way to build confidence that.

The way we’re playing now, Keano is being provien right. They aren’t playing for him. I think he will be gone very soon but I’m not sure if we will get Poch if PSG are in for him too.

Amz

1.) 05 Nov 2020 03:51:45
I don't believe poc is the answer, just because he's available, so was jose, its got repeated written all over that appointment, we need to Approach someone different, like nagelsman and, we smashed his team but that doesn't write him off, poc has done nothing to earn the right to manage us, ole move upstairs to do and bring in nagelsman, poc will be all ego.


2.) 05 Nov 2020 06:01:05

Its a banter site do one. 😷😷.


 

 

02 Nov 2020 10:17:15
Pogba can only do well in a team that has world class players all round. If you look at the French team, it is difficult to mark every player closely because their quality is all over the pitch. This gives Pogba much more time on the ball to do what he’s good at. When he plays for us, if he is marked closely then he is pretty much out the game and that is half our creativity gone if we are relying on him and Bruno.
McTominay and Fred are good if we are sitting deep and counter attacking but require no marking if we’re being asked to play on the front foot because they always concede possession anytime they try a risky pass. I’ve slept on it now and I still cannot believe that both Fred and Mctominay played yesterday. Arteta was never going to come and take the game to us. It was extremely easy to mark us because we had no out ball and our back 6 if you like, much prefer to pass it sideways or backwards. No manager should respect that back 6 because on the ball and when pressured they are all awful and that’s what happened yesterday. They were not given the time that they wanted. If Ole continues with that same formula, there will be many more teams coming to Old Trafford and doing the same.
He could have gone many ways about the set up but that particular setup was pointless.
That’s twice we have been at home and put a team out as if we were scared of losing. That’s exactly what happened when the match started. Every player looked petrified.
The problem he will have now is VdB will come in to a side that is lacking confidence and if they’re not clicking it will quickly seem as if he is also an issue. He’s our best player in possession with Mata arguably. I think we need them both.

1.) 02 Nov 2020 10:25:13
Stop the excuses with Paul Pogba, it's getting embarrassing now.


2.) 02 Nov 2020 10:26:48
I'm sick of the excuses for Pogba at this stage. He's lazy, he's brainless. Himself, his loudmouth brother and his agent are trouble.

Start VDB instead of him, ap layer who will put in the work, won't get dispossesd all the time and can pass to a team mate .

Even in the one game in seven where pogba plays half well, he's still sloppy .


3.) 02 Nov 2020 10:54:29
It's odd that in France he is seen as the catalyst in the team, the player that gets them running and sets them in motion. The general feeling in France is that United have wasted some of the best years of one of their best players of his generation. At least that's the feeling I've got from every French person I've spoken to about it.

I'm as bored as anyone talking about Pogba but I have to wonder just what causes such differences in effectiveness between the Red Bull game and yesterday.

He was excellent against Leipzig and useless against Arsenal. Why?

For some reason he decided to put some effort in last week then couldn't be bothered yesterday. What's going on there? Seems to me like he might have some mental issues. Maybe he needs a sports psychologist to gee him up and help him focus? Maybe it's more serious than that; could he be bi-polar?

Or may it was just a system more suited to the team on Wednesday, but a system that was not effective against Arsenal, meaning Pogba and Bruno were not seeing the ball as much as they should have. Fred also played a little better than usual on Wednesday, which helped the midfield get some form of control. Fred was sloppy, or more sloppy than Wednesday should I say, again yesterday leaning the creative players were not seeing the ball. The ball seemed to bypass the midfield completely for the entire first half. Also, Arsenal forced the paly to the left, meaning Shaw and Pogba were taken out of action in that way too. Many varying factors coming in to play.

{Ed025's Note - lets give a bit of credit to arsenal as well, they defended superbly and nullified uniteds midfield as well LLV..

Or maybe he just doesn't give a sh*t about Manchester United in general. I mean he's been like this for 2 years. Cut your losses and get rid, the whole club will be a better place without him.

Yeah but the French know abiut nothing. unless we're talking about garlic😁.

{Ed001's Note - that's not fair ken, they know a lot about cheese and how to ruin a good grape....}

When was the last time England won a major competition Ken? At this rate, Badiel and Skinner will be singing about 100 years of hurt.

@Ed25, that is true, which is why I allude to their play down the left, our right side, AWB is great defensively but not as good at creating offensive motions as Shaw. It was a bold move on Arteta's behalf, especially considering the threat Bellerin can pose.

No idea LLV but I'm not English so the longer they go without a win the better👍 they would be even less popular winners than the the i suspect.
Awb has more attempted crosses, more successful crosses and has created more chances and scored more goals than shaw this season he has has more touches than shaw in the final 3rd and nearly 3 times as many completed passes in the final third.
Awb creates more than shaw and tries harder to do so.

You’ve missed the point of the post if you think I’m making up excuses for him. I’m not. Read it properly mate.
It’s Pogba’s limitation that he is only able to play with those sort of players. See Juve and France. He doesn’t do us any good right now and we should clearly sell.

If you’re not going to reply constructively, then just ignore it.
What value do your posts add to this site DanJames and JamalSanchez?

That is some analysis on his injury record Shappy! If we can manage his injury then we have a fantastic two footed player on our hands.

I would not want to be the one making the decisions when it comes to the this sort of money Shappy.

I just hope whoever we do sign is signed early so that they can bed in with their new teammates.

Not everyone will hit the ground running like Bruno.

I think Bruno is intelligent enough to find space. We cannot be over reliant on him either. The team needs to step up and be confident enough to play the correct passes.

Fred/ Mctominay would only need to find Bruno or VdB. I think they’re capable of doing that if both play as an 8.
I’m not comfortable with the reliance on Greenwood. I also think we need to try something different given that we have so many options.
