Ole’s got a big summer ahead, I really hope he’s up to the task. I hope it isn’t another case like Moyes where we had someone come in who wasn’t used to scouting at looking to buy best in the world and became so starstruck that he ended up buying Fellaini. We need to be ruthless in our departures and looking to the future with our purchases. No ifs and buts, Ole needs to get rid of at least 7 players this summer. Valencia (should have gone 2 years ago), Jones injury prone and always has a big mistake in him), Darmain & Rojo (Both not good enough in a United shirt), Mata (unfortunately slowed down too much), Matic (Too slow body and mind), Sanchez (cant explain him).
Ole should also start signing player if he wants to challenge again. Liverpool signed Van Dijk and Keita is January. Chelsea signed Pulisic already. Barcelona signed De Jong. Real Madrid signed Eder Militao. What are the clowns at United waiting for? Oh they’re busy giving fading like Young, Mata, Jones etc a contract extension.
I half expect Ole to sign several players…
RB (Wan-Bissaka or Benjamin Pavard)
CB (Koulibaly or Skiniar or De Ligt)
2 CM (Ndombele and/or Ruben Neves and/or Declan Rice and/or Bruno Fernandes)
RW (Jadon Sancho or Lozano or Cristian Pavon)
Scholes-Surely £150m could get us De Ligt & Alderweireld or Manolas-combined? Reading Italian media that Juve has had a £75m bid turned down from Benfica for J.Felix-what a gem and a joy to watch! Just praying to the almighty God that nobody else [bar DDG!],gets a new contract,from the players currently @ the club.
Survival of the fittest remarks Ole at the way things are going to be under his watch. I wait with baited breath as he didnt seem to be singing off that hymn sheet when Phil “Face” Jones was dotting that eye on his new 4 year contract.
Phil Jones. Survival of the fittest. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm.
As for the tabloid tittle tattle today that Pogba will be offered the captaincy as well as more money in an attempt to “make him stay”, is this another indication of how far we have desperately fallen – talented player yes but very very questionable character, weak minded amd fainthearted when we are in the trenches, (social) media whore, freely allows cuntish agent act as mouthpiece, very unlikely to be here beyond current contract.
Does not sit well with me.
Agree moral.Find the right players,its all about this.
DeGea and lucky decisions s saved us yesterday.I thought Pogba showed responsibilities..in the first half but other than that we are complete shite.
I dont mind selling that lot to bring in the the highest transferkitty in history because there is no other way to be competitive again. Chop chop chop!
– Buy v good players to improve the first 11;
– Get rid of deadwood;
– Embed a one-for-all & all-for-one team spirit.
The result is a cohesive unit of quality players who consistently deliver for the badge and the fans.
City have better players but what Pool concede to them in terms of quality they more than make up for in character and team spirit.
(And we have spent much much more).
