Would the AG situation make us see James rodriguez as an option? similar player - not in quality, but possibly ability? If real want degea so bad what do you guys think of a ge gea + £70m for james, kroos and morata? Plus I will not be surprised if we see Zlatan by October, so we may not need a talisman forward so urgently after all.

Ryans left foot!

{Ed025's Note - is that you ed woodward?...come on ryan mate real are not going to buy that..


1.) 02 Jun 2017 10:11:36
i know ed. bit of a stretch. it may be upwards of £100m if we got all 3. On a side note, does anyone know what is happening with rooney? Surely he can't be considering China, although it may be worth it when we see him try to speak mandarin.

{Ed025's Note - now that would be fun ryan...hes still struggling with english!, i expect wayne to leave united this summer and everton could well be his destination but im spending a lot of time in church praying that hes not mate.. :)


2.) 02 Jun 2017 10:21:41
I don't know ed, he may make a decent replacement for barkley in the squad and can have a good impact on the youngsters - davies being one.

{Ed025's Note - if we want our youngsters hanging around old peoples homes looking for top totty then your right ryan.. :)


3.) 02 Jun 2017 10:58:45
Wouldn't take James or Morata. Neither are good enough.


4.) 02 Jun 2017 11:18:29
Morata is definitely good enough what attacker has scored 20+ goals starting mainly in the bench in Europe still younger enough to improve! Just real madrid overprice every single player he's a 25-30mill player at most!


5.) 02 Jun 2017 11:40:07
Morata is actually quite good at Juventus. It's just that Zidane preferred playing Benzema that you people get a bad impression of Morata.


6.) 02 Jun 2017 16:16:22
Morata for me please.

Graham Potter anyone?

Ryans left foot!

1.) 05 Oct 2019 15:08:37
I'd take his brother Harry at this stage.


2.) 05 Oct 2019 15:20:43
I’d take Brian Potter as manager at this stage.


3.) 05 Oct 2019 15:40:12
we will need a bit of Harry's magic the way things are going. one could even argue Graham's record is better than Ole's and his teams play better.


4.) 05 Oct 2019 16:57:44
He has totally changed the way that Brighton play. They now play good football.
Just shows how bad Utd or Ed Woodward is at picking managers such a big club but run by amateurs.
Nothing against Ole but this was hardly a planned appointment.


5.) 05 Oct 2019 17:04:25
If his record's better, how come Brighton are below us in the table? 😁.


6.) 05 Oct 2019 17:18:16
And we have a game in hand nou.


7.) 05 Oct 2019 17:25:16
Now we are comparing ourselves with Brighton. Wow. How low can we go?

Oh forgot, we are resetting.


8.) 05 Oct 2019 17:56:54
That showed him, Ken! 😂.


9.) 05 Oct 2019 21:01:18
Potter has 26 points in his last 19. Ole has 19. Even comparing Brighton and Man Utd should tell us how far we have fallen. We have a far superior squad but no idea what to do with it. I am not suggesting that we should sack Ole and replace him with Potter but this goes to show how poor Ole has been in getting the best out of this squad.


10.) 05 Oct 2019 22:17:38
I was only joking about your, 'can't argue with that' comment, mate.


11.) 06 Oct 2019 01:00:43
Too early to judge Potter. It's his first season in the world's toughest league. Yes he is doing OK at Brighton but let's wait til the season ends to analyse how he has done. The level of expectation at Utd is much greater than at Brighton too.


12.) 06 Oct 2019 08:01:54
No worries Nou. To be fair the fact that Potter has more points than ole did shock me as did watching Brighton and hoping we played like that!


 

 

03 Oct 2019 21:38:55
You can only complain about quality if the 11 on the field play to their best and come up short. This team will not improve by much even if we bought 4-5 more players. Feels like I am seeing the death of a giant. hope the board are hanging their head in shame.

Ryans left foot!

1.) 03 Oct 2019 22:49:51
We need three or four top players on a few key positions and we will be ok. Too much gloom and doom about that. More important is to get the football as opposed to the business side of the club running properly.


2.) 03 Oct 2019 23:13:02
Salford

You’ve got blinkers on mate. Few players and we’ll be alright, we’ve been saying that for 6 years. This team is struggling to keep up with the top 8 or 9 in the league, and can’t beat European minnows. It’s a shambles and there is serious issues from top to bottom. We could sign Messi and it won’t make a difference.


3.) 04 Oct 2019 00:15:36
Think you should add another 4 players to the list of 3 or 4


Even our subs are garbage.


4.) 04 Oct 2019 05:16:37
Salford

This is the speech for the last 6 or 7 years, guess what, after aprox 800M spent and you still hoping to be "ok".
10 years from now we will be here staying the same thing.


5.) 04 Oct 2019 06:08:11
The main issue yesterday was midfield.
No creativity, no control, no legs.
The number of times Fred gave away the ball was shocking.


6.) 04 Oct 2019 08:21:15
Oles gambles have not paid off. His decision to let Rashford lead the line was always going to be a big one and it's backfired. He's just not a leading striker. And I know you'll be on saying "But Lukaku wanted out". He only wanted out because Ole persevered with Rashford last year when his record was 2 goals in 12. Lukaku done well when he was called upon.

He clearly wasn't backed as he should have been in the summer, but the team we put out every week are so devoid of ideas and solutions it's like we've never played as a team together.

As Salford7 said, get a manager that has a clear way of player and let the club grow from there.


7.) 04 Oct 2019 09:45:45
Mumbles what managers available?


8.) 04 Oct 2019 10:03:29
Mumbles, I think Martial was actually chosen to lead the line, unfortunately he was quickly injured. Ole gets a lot of blame, but the players last night were simply dire, Matic and Fred were terrible. If I'd point any criticism at Ole it would be that Fred stayed on the pitch. You can have the best tactics in the world and the best manager but if players can't pick out a 10 yard pass, it will just fall apart.


9.) 04 Oct 2019 10:07:23
Our main problem is not scoring enough goals. If we bought in Lewa or another goalscorer (Fernandez) we wouldve been fine.

Goals win u matches and at the moment we don't have players tht cn do tht apart from Martial.


10.) 04 Oct 2019 10:31:08
Mort, ed002 said one of the decisions to be made was paying the £16 million for Pochettino. Go cap in hand to Aleggri and see could we salvage the relationship after dicking him around 4 years ago.

Once the club have started talking to 3rd parties about the future of the manager, then it's only a matter of time before he's sacked. The results and performances are abysmal.

If we can't get out first choice manager. Sack Ole and let Wenger have it until the end of the season while we do our due diligence and appoint someone who is actually qualified to manager out club.

And Mort, still waiting how you "proved me wrong" yesterday?

{Ed002's Note - Not £16M - a lot more than that.}


11.) 04 Oct 2019 10:43:39
LLV, Martial is up front this season but last season when Lukaku was on the bench, Rashford was leading the line. I think it was a smart move by Ole swapping Rashford and Martial.


12.) 04 Oct 2019 11:04:33
Last year sure, but Lukaku was terrible in the formation, he needs crosses and he was the only player able to put in a good cross. I actually thought he looked OK on the right last year when he played there, because he can actually whip in a good cross. That's what annoyed me the most last night, the amount of good crosses the AZ players were able to put into the box, we either hit the first defender to lumped it to the other side of the field, and that's been the case for years.


13.) 04 Oct 2019 11:15:07
Sorry ed. £35 million it seems.


14.) 04 Oct 2019 13:23:38
I thought it was £35 million. That seems a lot for a coach who's currently struggling, whose club forms as bad as ours, is poor in the transfer market and has never won anything. Even the failed Cardiff manager TM and (c) has won something.

Have we even started talking to other managers?

Mumbles you said no managers at all get time to build a squad I pointed out Liverpool backed klopp to do his rebuild. You could also argue Poch although I think he's done poor transfer wise.

Good read and fair points made.


 

 

03 May 2019 09:45:17
Thanks for the replies below all - we have actually signed quite a few young players - Shaw, Pogba, lindelof, bailly, dalot, zaha, martial etc. all of whom were tipped to go on and do really well, but haven't fulfilled their potential. This suggests there are larger underlying problems with recruitment, coaching, style of play, motivation etc. My question is what makes us think buying young players over the next few windows will work when it hasn't worked in the past? City, liverpool adn Spurs to a certain extent bought from within the premiership when they were in the position we are in because you knew what you were getting and could build from there. e. g. robertson, wijnaldum, mane, tevez, lescott, nasri, clichy, sissoko, dembel etc. Should we be looking in the prem for reinforcements rather than germany, portugal and spain?

Ryans left foot!

1.) 03 May 2019 10:06:31
Lukaku, matic, schneiderlin, shaw, mata and fellaini were all recruits from the premier league. No of them have been successful signings in the frand scheme of things.

People can chop up our recruitment any way they like and find a correlation between the background of the player we signed and their poor performamce. Whether that's nationality or the league they came from but its not that simple.

We don't have a default way of playing in most games which makes recruitment haphazard and constant managerial changes mean we have a mishmash of players of different styles.

Once we get the style and system sorted we can then recruit more effectively and efficiently.


2.) 03 May 2019 10:07:59
The players you mentioned were all bought by different managers with a different idea of how to play. None have been fully trusted or allowed to play or express themselves.

Buying from within the Prem is always desirable where possible. It limits the chances of them struggling to adapt to a new club and a new culture. Also it weakens your opponents, while you also know how these players perform against the sides you play most weeks.


 

 

02 May 2019 17:38:47
Watching Tottenham and Liverpool over the last couple of days I wanted to ask all the posters a question - who was the last player we bought that we improved significantly. I think we may have to go as far back as DeGea.

Ryans left foot!

1.) 02 May 2019 18:04:22
Genuinely cannot think of one. Matic for a season perhaps.


2.) 02 May 2019 18:12:00
Lindelof is one who has improved over the past two years, but aside from that it’s a bit sparse.


3.) 02 May 2019 18:21:45
I would say Herrera is a better player now than when we signed him. I’m not sure who else.


4.) 02 May 2019 19:50:39
Herera and Lindelof.


5.) 02 May 2019 20:23:02
Lindelof is the only one. Herrera maybe, but he has been in and out so much it is hard to say if he is actually better of just getting a run to build up form.

But then it's hardly surprising when most of our signings have been players supposedly at their peaks.

How many players have we signed under the age of 23?


6.) 02 May 2019 20:31:59
Ander, DDG, Lindelof.

The others can’t improve as they were invariably terrible signings in the first place.


7.) 02 May 2019 20:51:26
Sanchez. He's really improved on the piano over the last few months. Think Bill Murray in Groundhog Day.


8.) 02 May 2019 20:53:52
I wouldn’t say Herrera has improved, he has adapted to a new role. In Spain he played a bit higher up the pitch, and was a link between midfield and attack. With us he’s more defensive minded, and has improved that side of his game, but seems lacking in creativity.


9.) 02 May 2019 21:05:03
Luke Shaw?


10.) 02 May 2019 21:27:03
What about young do you guys think he's a better player then he was at Villa?

{Ed025's Note - he was crap at villa and has gone downhill since..


11.) 02 May 2019 21:33:26
Rashford, Lingard, Lindelof, Shaw, degea, martial, Herra have all improved I my opinion. The only players to regress of not improve was Smalling Jones Rojo and Pogba but in his defensive he was already above our level he just has another fear I think we are holding him back from reaching.


12.) 02 May 2019 21:58:09
😂😂😂. Just don't know why we even bothered signing him.


13.) 02 May 2019 22:42:52
Only de Gea has improved the rest are tosh.


14.) 02 May 2019 22:53:33
Van persie.


15.) 03 May 2019 07:50:24

Clubs speak to agents first to understand if the player will be interested in the move and in the terms proposed based on the perceived value to the squad / budget available etc. They can approach the selling club before or after this as this has no bearing on if the fee will be agreed. if pepe has agreed terms with us it does not mean that we will agree a fee with lille. I hope we steer clear given the concerns about the players attitude.

I am not convinced either Ed. Unless Woodward wants to trust others' with more experience in footballing matters and let go a little, the structure is not going to do its job. But as a fan, i can only hope he does soon and enjoy the good football in the meanwhile.

Thanks for clarifying that Ed. if we have shifted our focus to finding a TD then i take that as Woodward wanting to keep first team matters under his thumb. Not a good thing as he has gone far too long and caused many issues simply because there is no one to challenge his opinion and stance on matters he has little experience with.
On the plus side us moving towards establishing a style of play should make our recruitment better in the long term. LvG tried to do this by getting all the footballing teams playing the same way and changing the scouting / training. Only issue was his style did not suit what the fans wanted.

depends on if we play 3 in the middle. i don't think garner is ready to play in a midfield 2 with an inept no.10.
i disagree that throwing kids in without any support, role models or experience in the team is a good thing. makes their growth stall and doesn't improve their quality, shatters their confidence and doesn't create a habit of winning.
