Duncan castles reporting done deal for awb 55m.

1.) 19 Jun 2019 20:03:34
A lot of money if it's true .
Just another example of other clubs having our pants down
Midfield and a striker is were we need to improve
Guess we will find out soon enough what the fuss about AWB is all about.

2.) 19 Jun 2019 20:11:28
Good moan rock.

Or If true, means we’ve nailed one of our major targets for the summer. Young, highly talented right back which was one of our biggest weaknesses.

3.) 19 Jun 2019 20:24:19
Some fans, moan when we don’t spend, moan when we do. Pretty well documented our defence needs a big upgrade.

4.) 19 Jun 2019 20:37:03
Duncan castles isn't the most reliable but if true it's good business in today's market English players are ridiculous in price.

But answer this

Does he makes us better yes
Will he be first choice yes
Hes young English and he had a great season one of the best defenders last season.

Agree with ports I'm not that interested how much money is being spent on the team as long as the players are improving us.

5.) 19 Jun 2019 21:08:37
Great progress if true, a winger and a right back signed already.

Plenty of time remaining to bring in a CB and a CM.

Good window so far. People complain about us not having a plan. Well I like this approach of signing young, quick and exciting players. I don’t care if they’re British or not, I want our players to get me out of my seat.

6.) 20 Jun 2019 00:58:03
I'll be very happy if we do get the AWB deal over the line, looks a very promising player with his best years ahead of him. Hopefully James can go on to fulfil his potential at Utd too. Its midfield that worries me though, we need 2/ 3 players in there and i do think they need be be ready made players who can go straight in to the team. I'm all for signing potential and building a future team but with Herrera/ Fellaini (regardless of our opinion of their quality) and maybe Pogba wanting out we are well short in what is for me the most important area. Mctomminay, Fred, Perreira are good players in their own right but we need world class in there. It'll be hard with no CL but we need to break the bank in midfield.

7.) 20 Jun 2019 08:01:43
I like the look of him but let's be honest it's a massive amount of money for a young lad .
Does he make us better? Only time will tell .

8.) 20 Jun 2019 12:22:33
Does he make us better? Better than Ashley Young? A traffic cone would make us better.

9.) 20 Jun 2019 21:45:24
Wan-Bissaka would be a very good buy for you guys. Prob the only RB who managed to cope with Mane this year. Would be a major upgrade for that position for you. And considering he is british, you have to expect silly money for him.

Have it on good authority Judge took plane to London and that gunnersaurus is currently having a medical and signing to be announced shortly.

1.) 05 Oct 2020 21:54:53
Made me chuckle.



21 Sep 2020 22:02:11
Imagine how many players we missed out on because judge had his phone off. You think gaitan and sneijder are still calling it?

1.) 21 Sep 2020 22:56:45
made me chuckle that. Needed it after watching a very emotional uncle pat talk at 2 AM sipping green tea.

What a mess.



21 Sep 2020 21:12:19
Matthew judge - Managing Manchester United's equity and debt capital structure - three equity offerings incl. the IPO, totalling over $450m; and three debt refinancings ($1bn+) - debt private placement, term-loan and RCF. Also player negotiations (transfers and playing contracts) .

Prior to Man Utd; investment banking for 13 years, based in both Europe and Asia - Equity Offerings, M&A and VC/ PE. Primary focus on TMT.
Evra is completely right you don't send people like this or lawyers to Speak with a player. Stick to what your good at judge and it's not completing transfers that's for sure.

1.) 21 Sep 2020 21:16:40
Or appointing managers twenty.
Your bang on.

2.) 21 Sep 2020 21:21:27
Just proves how much in trouble we are in.

Ignoring calls from other dofs.

3.) 21 Sep 2020 21:25:56
We are most likely a laughing stock amongst Europe’s elite. Can imagine all the ceos having a chuckle at the state of Ed and the boys 🤣.

4.) 21 Sep 2020 21:52:59
Promises were made by Woodward that a dof would be brought in, it never happened and the last update from the club was it’s no longer a priority. Even if they did it would be a title they give to someone who has zero control. We are a laughing stock Tim but at least that’s something judge knows something about . stocks and restructuring debt.



21 Sep 2020 17:58:46
Patrice evra on Woodward "the only problem I would say to Woodward is trusting people he should never trust he even trusts people outside the club that he shouldn't. A football director called me from a top football club and asked me to tell Matthew judd to answer his phone. People need to understand we send lawyers to talk to players. So when we send lawyers they talk about numbers, they are not people from the football world. The club needs to stop being so arrogant. there are certain people at the club right now that don't even respect SAF. People want to blow his legacy away. For what? Business? I think some people who work for the club are damaging this club. That's why we have to tel the truth to the fans. I know some people are scared to speak up about because they may not get a job in the future, I don't care, I love Manchester United.

1.) 21 Sep 2020 18:12:01
Typo *matthew judge.

2.) 21 Sep 2020 19:06:17
Good man pat. People need to speak up and not be afraid to do so.

3.) 21 Sep 2020 19:21:53
Just watched it.
Really sad to hear how the club is run.
Evra is so passionate and wants the best for our club.

4.) 21 Sep 2020 19:26:15
My post didn’t make it through previously but I wanted to applaud Patrice Evra for being open and honest. You have to laugh. A football director called an ex player of ours to tell Matt Judge to answer his phone! Say it out loud. It’s actually ridiculous. Ed002 did say that Woodward is not entirely to blame and Evra does seem to back this up. If his issue is trusting the wrong people then surely after many failed seasons, you take a different approach? Patrice gave us a small example of how Matt Judge operates. He could be doing much worse. Emphasis on could. It’s well worth the 20 minute watch and I’m happy someone has come out and said things openly and honestly without caring about what damage it does to their chances of having a role in the club. Well done Pat!

5.) 21 Sep 2020 20:09:10
It seems Gary Neville has also come out and said his bit today also. Pressure from the fans, ex players and the media. Will we do anything about it?

6.) 21 Sep 2020 20:32:47
This is the thing about having an ex-player as manager.

There are now many ex-United players working in the media. They might have been okay throwing an outsider such as Moyes, LvG or Jose under the bus. But will they throw one of their own?

Will people like Evra, Neville, Keane, Scholes, Giggs, Ferdinand etc throw Ole under the bus to protect those higher up, or will they back their former teammate, their friend and say what is really happening.

People want real change at our club it won't happen by calling for Ole's head. He'd be sacked and we would find ourselves in the same position in 18 months to two years time.

However, a club legend, a man who ex-players and fan can stand behind. That might be the thing that makes real change happen.

None of us are fools here, we all know Ole isn't the long term option. But he might be the man we can gather around to make real change happen. Make those people who won't relinquish power realise they can't hide in the shadows anymore. Make those higher up accountable and suddenly we might find ourselves with the right people in the right roles, the amateurs will be found out and removed. Then when the right structure is in place we will appoint a manager who can take the club to the next level.

7.) 21 Sep 2020 21:10:41
Exactly what I’ve been saying Shappy. The decision to hire Ole puts the pressure on them more than it would do with other managers. Most of us agree Ole isn’t the man to bring us sexy football and trophies but the majority of fans will not turn on him as they did with Moyes, LVG or Jose. I wonder if they’re regretting hiring Ole 😂.

8.) 21 Sep 2020 21:15:11
So is Ole our cannon fodder Shappy?

9.) 21 Sep 2020 21:37:34
Mmmmm the men in charge hired a man who can undermine and expose them. as soon as he got close to that they would fire him.
Did ole ask pat to say those things? Would go up in my estimation if he did.

10.) 21 Sep 2020 21:42:03
So in Shappys posts today, we have gone from Project Fear, we might get GIggs as the new Manager, to now claim that Ole is the man to stand behind to get real change. Ole the new Che Guevera, vice la revolution. Smacks of more desperation to get people behind Ole.

Real change won’t happen due to Ole, real change will only happen when there is a change of ownership, a change of focus and aim. Ole can’t bring that and it shows the depth of emotion involved thinking he can.

11.) 21 Sep 2020 21:54:14
The men in charge are that stupid Ken.

12.) 22 Sep 2020 10:18:13
Watched. Interesting.



17 Sep 2020 22:26:42
[ESPN] on average since saf leaving we have spent 85 mil on players following CL qualification and when we've missed out on qualification 161 mil. No ambition with these owners to put together a title winning team and challenge. Content with top 4 and the money that comes with it. Whilst city owners have ploughed into club a billion our owners have taken out a billion.

1.) 17 Sep 2020 22:37:46
I post somthing similar about owners injecting money into the clubs we are minus 89 million in the paat 5 seasons bottom of list.

2.) 17 Sep 2020 23:15:49
Total nonsense. Our back 4 Cost £200m+ yet still we want upgrades. The first choice mid 3 cost £180m+. Martial cost £50m. What else do you want?

3.) 18 Sep 2020 00:06:31
if we do not buy anybody else this transfer window. aston villa would of spent more than us over 2 seasons. i suppose joel wants his dividens this year but hey we can do things no other club can do.

4.) 18 Sep 2020 00:10:33
Yet apparently we aren’t within our rights to complain. It’s not all about wanting a specific player it’s about how the club conducts its business and how the owners business model exists only to service debt (accrued by them) and payout to the major shareholders.

5.) 18 Sep 2020 06:36:47
Eric79, we want a front 3 of Messi, Lewandowski and Mbappe. Is that too much to ask for?

6.) 18 Sep 2020 08:04:08
A new coach Eric.

7.) 18 Sep 2020 08:10:31
Eric, we are about to play our first match of this season without strengthening our first X1?

Our decision makers don't seem to be having any ambition to compete with the elite teams.

8.) 18 Sep 2020 08:13:30
We might get them on a free in 10 years Wazza 😂.

9.) 18 Sep 2020 08:59:42
Eric, it's not about the amount of money spent per se. It's about the ambition of the owners. They are happy to spend big when we NEED to get into the UCL (as income would drop significantly if we don't), but once we are there they spend the minimum required. You could argue that while we had Sir Alex we spent less as Sir Alex kept us challenging.

The question is do the owners have the ambition to push on beyond the top four? Because it's starting to look like they haven't.

10.) 18 Sep 2020 09:09:52
the only ambition the owners have is MONEY.

tampa bay is where we are heading.

The board aren’t convinced? Maybe they should have backed the manager? We all know where the problems in our squad are whether we have mourinho or another manager those problems will still exsist. Some of the players in our squad should have gone a few seasons ago yet they remain. I could name 5/ 6 positions we need players for.

If we keep buying older players we will need a complete rebuild of the midfield in 2 years. Willian 29 herra 29 Sanchez 30 fellani 30 matic 30.

{Ed002's Note - Maybe Neville has some younger players in mind that he could use?}

Maguire was constantly chasing the ball leaving huge gaps behind him, maybe he was actually playing in midfield yesterday and it was just a back three. He really didn’t help his Fellow defenders yesterday. Gives away a free kick and doesn’t even switch on to any danger. Lots of talk of he needs a partner to see best of him but I think we need 2 new Cb he’s just not good enough.

He’s been backed yes but that’s past tense That was last season you don’t suddenly stop because that then becomes not backing. As it stands I think our net spend is about 30mil and one player signed. That isn’t backing a manager and a day before deadline day. Clubs need constant reinvesting even if you win the league, you still need to to bring players in. We all know this isn’t a squad capable to a title challenge, it was lucky to finish 3rd, this was the perfect opportunity to get players in especially as we have CL to offer will we next year? That’s what’s happens when you stand still.
The way this club operates is crazy. Some of you guys are blind. You all want the short term fix sack the manager.

Wake up Shan! The club is being run abysmally. I find it unbelievable “fans” like you don’t see the bigger picture. This is ground hog day. Every time we qualify for cl we spend less than when we don’t qualify. when in fact this is a time it should in theory be easier to bring players is. Now we’re seeing the scattergun approach, panic buys. A player who’s been available for 6months and now we sign them? The people running the club, the bankers, the guys who nothing about football let alone our history are making the same mistakes again and again. They haven’t even learnt on the job, they are as useless as the day they were hired. Let’s just hope judge has his phone on the day of deadline day. Amateurs.
