    According to Ole and Woodward we do have a vision for the club, players who fit the mould of a Man Utd player, players who fit the Man Utd DNA. According to Ole and Woodturd that is.

    Yorkshireman – Tuanzebe and Bailly were both due to play in the reserves last Friday. They should be back shortly.

    Maguire is an slow oaf and turns like an oiltanker. There have been good CB´s before with these attributes but they have been saved by good positioning and reading of the game. Maguire has neither.

    Hope not Bruno Fernandes is affected of Man United syndrome “everyone joining United will be a worse player”. Little worried about the adaption to PL and reading his stats against top sides aint that good. But at least he thinks football and is creative so the understanding between Pogba and Bruno will be awesome to watch.

    If the third midfielder would be in the mould of Thomas Partey top 4 would be reached in a heartbeat.

    If Bruno deal is abandoned i hope they will go for Hakim Ziyech. Avaiable for 43M right now.

    even tho Bruno Fernandes rumors looking promising i’ll still believe it when he’s holding up the shirt. Theresa May would probably be more effective negotiating this deal than that clown.

    Total agreement between #BrunoFernandes agent (M.Pinho) and #ManchesterUnited until 2025 (€6M a year). They’ve told to Sporting about Bruno’s desire to play in PremierLeague. Tomorrow #ManchesterUnited‘ll work to reach agreement with Sporting and close the deal. #transfers #MUFC

    Mino Raiola has offered Jesse Lingard to Roma, AC Milan, Inter Milan and Napoli. Fingers crossed one of them bites 🙂

    And apparently Leicester want to replace Chilwell with Shaw! Yeah right. I am still hoping he pushes for a move to Chelsea though. Apparently he was a fan growing up :p

    The latest chatter is that Solskjaer doesn’t want to lose Rojo as part of the Fernandes deal. Fuck me, that’s unbelievable.

    That has to be nonsense JM. It’s clear Ole thinks Rojo is shite because of the amount of game time he’s given him. I heard the stumbling block was his wages, if so we need to do what City have been doing for years and just pay him to fuck off!

    This Fernandes deal smacks of panic buying to try and save Ole and Woodturd’s skin yet again I’m afraid, if he really is the player that our new ‘strategic’ transfer planning team had identified as being a great deal to go for then why in fucks name didn’t they do it in the summer when Sporting and his agent were touting his arse all over Europe?.
    At that time the MEN were consistently saying that the club had briefed them to say that there was absolutely no interest in the player at any price, and they even reiterated that line again just prior to the January window opening, but now all of a sudden it’s game on it seems.

    If he really is as good as his stats in Portugal suggest, why didn’t we just go and get him in the summer? Just a few extra goals and assists coming from midfield against all those shite sides we’ve already dropped points against would probably have had us comfortably in the top four by now, and it also concerns me that nobody else seems to be too interested in taking him either.

    Apparently Sporting are up the creek, financial fair-play speaking, and the word is that selling Fernandes will basically sort them out. If that’s the case we can play hardball over Rojo’s wages but really we should do as happy stated, just pay him to fuck off!

    Blacky – Clearly Ole thought Messi Lingard would be smashing in the goals from an attacking midfield perspective! Then he probably looked at Matic, McTominay, Pogba, Pereira and Fred and decided another midfielder would be too much especially when Mata had just signed an extension and Garner potentially breaking through. Fact is that Pereira and Fred have not been good enough, Matic has about 10 games left in his career and Lingard has been woeful. Pogba has been injured/wants to leave and basically that midfield area has been the worst part of the squad all season. So much so that Scott McTominay has looked like our best player when really he’s not.

    So perhaps now the penny has finally fucking dropped for them that Fernandes offers a few things that none of our current midfielders do. Namely, a bit of fucking consistency in performance and fitness. So they just need to go and get him, pay whatever it is and send Rojo packing in the other direction. Simple.

    I don’t think Fernandes is our number one choice. I think Ole wanted Maddison and was hoping that the options we currently have would get us through the season. If Pogba had been fit, and Lingard or Pereira had shown some ability we wouldn’t be addressing this now. However, as the season has progressed our need for creativity in midfield has become desperate. Maddison’s price has continued to rise (can’t see Leicester letting him go for less than £100m now) and we have been forced to re-evaluate our targets. I’m hoping that since the summer we have thoroughly scouted and assessed Fernandes and decided that he can do the job.
    Like some of you on here, I’ve voiced my doubts about Fernandes before and wonder why no-one else has signed him. Let’s hope that if he signs he spends his time scoring and assisting loads of goals and proving me wrong!

    In my opinion Bruno Fernandes is definitely worth a punt, especially if the transfer get us shot of Rojo.

    That being said I don’t see the point in signing an attacking midfielder before signing a proper deep lying midfielder who can screen the defense in the mould of Kante, Ndidi, or Rodri. Our main issue is still the inability to win the ball back and keep it effectively. Bruno Fernandes will at least help in breaking down stubborn defenses and also won’t constantly shoot 20m above the crossbar ala Fred and Pereira but I still think we need a number 6 more than we need a number 8 or 10.

    @happy – All these things were as plain as the nose on Pinocchio’s fucking face years ago mate. The very fact that it has taken him over a year in charge for the ‘penny to finally drop’ about how shite our midfield options are is precisely the reason why he isn’t up to doing this job, he should have grasped the nettle on this a long, long time ago.

    With revenues starting to flatline and even reduce next year and increased expenditure needed on players and infrastructure lets hope this could be the beginning of the end for these parasites and Wudturd!?
