Don’t know about incomings but I want to see some outgoings and I don’t mean that host of youth team players who didn’t make it (surprise surprise). I mean, we’ve been selling Darmian for 3 years and he’s still on the books. Fucking shambles!June 13, 2019 at 12:37 pm #1759131
Agreed, we seem to be the only club in the world who have an accountant in charge and can’t shift or make a profit on player sales. I guess that’s evidence that we are paying them too much in wages. Gets back to needing a root and branch review of the club, a plan and a DoF. Dread to think what we are paying James, something sensible that means we can move him on if he doesn’t work out or will we spend 9 years trying to make him into a RB?June 13, 2019 at 2:47 pm #1759202
jm1502-Spot on fella,really need the likes of Darmian,Rojo,Mata,Matic,Sanchez-ASAP.Sounds as if we gonna have to pay them to leave-fucking parasitic mercenaries!
Max Aarons is another young player I really like.Young,English,and only 19 yrs of age!June 13, 2019 at 3:26 pm #1759217
Hooked – Think i read we are paying James £68k a week.
Redblood – Max Aarons is the guy Palace are lining up as their replacement for Wan Bissaka. Championship Young Player of the year, right?June 13, 2019 at 3:32 pm #1759218
Yes Happy, I believe he is Palace’s replacement. Interestingly he is also our back up should Wan Bissaka not sign.June 13, 2019 at 3:42 pm #1759224
Give me J.Tarkowski ahead of Smalling,Jones,Bailly and Rojo,anytime…..June 13, 2019 at 5:24 pm #1759259
Tarkowski, if he’s the best we can get we might as well not bother! Fold the club up and find a new team!June 13, 2019 at 5:48 pm #1759260June 13, 2019 at 5:53 pm #1759261
Hooked-Much rather have him as a sub than any of our defenders we have currently.June 13, 2019 at 6:09 pm #1759262
Sorry mate, Tarkowski’s shite. Careful what you wish for. Having dross doesn’t mean buy more of it.June 13, 2019 at 6:13 pm #1759263
Fuck me, I hope this rumour about Rakitic is shite. It must be surely? I mean, letting Herrera go for fuck all then spending 40 million to buy him back. Imagine a midfield with Matic and Rakitic in it. Fuck me!June 13, 2019 at 6:31 pm #1759264
jm1502-Just paper talk so far m8,just discussing some names being thrown about by the press.Im still laughing @ Lukaku saying:”Conte is the best manager in the world”June 13, 2019 at 10:02 pm #1759295
@JM, the Rakitic rumour has been arounf for a while. I hope and expect it is agent dripfeeding with the sole purpose if getting a revised contract at Barca.
To say this would be a bad move would be an understatement. 32 at his next birthday but the man is fucking knackered, full stop. He was a monumental embarassment versus Pool in both legs. It wouldnt surprise me if Barca wanted shot of him and I would not even take him on a free.
Ed Deadwood Woodward would really surpass himself if he pulls this this off.June 13, 2019 at 10:13 pm #1759297
Rakitic would be a bizarre signing. At odds with what most people think we are trying to do – young, hungry players.
Seems past it and overpriced as well.
That said we have already been linked in the papers to about 50 players, so hopefully just paper talk.June 14, 2019 at 7:24 am #1759309
There’s a new Manchester United rumour every hour so I don’t see why you lot comment on every single one. Fact is it’s 99% bollocks and you only know it’s true when there is official word from one of the clubs or the player; or when you see actually see video footage of the player at Old Trafford.
Point is I don’t see why you lot spend so much time and energy discussing all these players but I guess it’s each to their own.June 14, 2019 at 7:31 am #1759310
they just love the Green Devils 😉June 14, 2019 at 9:28 am #1759343
‘Point is I don’t see why you lot spend so much time and energy discussing all these players but I guess it’s each to their own.’ Otherwise, I’d have to do some work or study, this is first class procrastination and ranting about politics is mentally tiring! 🙂
RedBlood – You’re right Tarkowski is an improvement on those you mention but not enough to make his signing worth it especially as it would block Tuanzebe, I’d rather see how he got on than sign someone average. Or, we could just play Fred the Red instead of any of those you mention and see an improvement!
Rakatic rumours are surely just his agent trying to drum up business.June 14, 2019 at 11:18 am #1759375

My prediction for next season’s starting 11
AWB Tuanzebe Lindelof Shaw
One promotion, two new signings and 3 major key players leaving Pogba, De Gea and Lukaku, i actually think this team can be better than last season’s 😂😂 I think we wont sign a right winger, instead we’ll convert Dalot to RW,
What’s your predicted starting 11 for next season?June 14, 2019 at 12:25 pm #1759406
Sympathy for the DevilsParticipant
@libanski – if we had to start the season with that first XI then I’d honestly be surprised if we finished in top half of the table.
AWB – CB? – Lindelof – Shaw
McTominay – Pogba – RABIOT
JAMES – Rashford – Martial
Think Win Bassaka will come in, then we’ll get a CB to partner Lindelof (not sure who though – hoping for De Ligt but will most likely be an overpriced Maguire).
We’ll also bring in another midfielder and reckon Rabiot will be our best bet.
4 new signings.
I reckon Darmian, Rojo, Mata and Lukaku will leave.
