  1. Transfer Talk Topic

    So this is what we're looking like for the start of the season: ----------------------Arrizabalaga----------------- Azpilicueta---Rudiger--Luiz----Alonso -------------------------Jorginho---------------- ---------------Kovacic----------Kante--------- ---Willian------------------------------------Hazard ---------------------------Morata--------------------- Not the worst result.

    ^ Agreed, we're making the best of a bad situation, particularly factoring in Kovacic. Got to get that option included, though.
  3. Transfer Talk Topic

    Don't think we'll sign any strikers now. It'll be Kepa and Kovacic with Courtois and Drinkwater leaving. Fekir would be an outside bet as an additional signing, but I'm not sure I can see it with only two days left.
  4. Transfer Talk Topic

    Kovacic, Fekir, Butland in. Drinkwater, Courtois out. Get to work, Marina.

    Another thing, we really haven’t learned from last season. Jorginho a very welcome signing, but is that it? Fulham and Wolves are showing more ambition than us.

    So disappointed in Thibaut. Can’t believe we sacrificed Cech only to experience a year and a bit of petulance. I can empathise for a player wanting to be close to his family - and I’ll take what he is saying at face value - but there is no need to undermine the team in the process with little comments to the press and and what appears to be him going on strike.
  7. Transfer Talk Topic

    I think two seasons/four windows before we're going to get near where we want to be.
  8. New Stadium Plans

    Precisely what I suggested a little while back. The perfect site for us IMO. Gives incredible scope for design and capacity, for additional facilties, for ingress and egress, better transport links and still in the area where we are rooted. Also, critically for our owner, much better return on investment. I've never been fully sold on remaining at the Bridge with a shoe horned extension.

    If I'm honest, I think I only want Wilf if he's coming in as a replacement for Willian. I don't have a huge amount of evidence other than his game against Arsenal last year and his form with the youth/reserves last season, but given a run this season I think Hudson-Odoi will be absolutely immense. We cannot waste that potential, so shouldn't look to block his progress.

    Are we still talking about Jose Mourinho?
  11. Transfer Talk Topic

    Not sure on how he's progressed, but Bernard used to be a huge prospect. Could be useful on a free. Wiki saying he is a winger, but I'm sure when he first broke through he played the Oscar role - sort of a slightly deeper version of a number ten.

    Plus height is passé. The greatest club team of the past decade had an average height of about four foot.
  13. Transfer Talk Topic

    Links to Thiago. I think he would fit well in our Midfield with Sarri’s system, particularly if we hang onto Hazard and Willian.
  14. Transfer Talk Topic

    It's not, though. United's net spend over the past three years must be what? Half a billion? A few hundred million in the three or four seasons before that? For a club of United's size, history and stature, spending that amount and coming out of it with a League Cup and a Europa League is a poor result. (and fwiw, I like Jose and rate him as our best ever manager)
  15. Transfer Talk Topic

    No, mate, you don't have to hate someone to recognise their flaws and their failings.
  16. Transfer Talk Topic

    You don't have to hate Jose Mourinho to point out that he's underperformed at United and has behaved like a petulant brat. Hell, he was a petulant brat when he managed us, though he was our petulant brat.
  17. Transfer Talk Topic

    Two aging wingers on lucrative contracts that will be nothing but a burden to the club in a couple of seasons and a tank in the middle. Sounds like a Mourinho wet dream.
  18. Transfer Talk Topic

    Pulisic in impressive form last season and is looking up for it in pre-season. A good, young option to replace Willian if he goes?
  19. Transfer Talk Topic

    I don't think it's fanciful at all. Milan have budget issues, Reina is a very good, cost effective short term option, Donarumma will fetch them a good fee. I can see it happening. Would be a great signing on our part.
  20. Transfer Talk Topic

    Do you know who I think would be a good fit for the Hamsik role in Sarri’s system here? Oscar
  21. Transfer Talk Topic

    Talk of Barcelona offering Ousmane Dembele + Cash for Hazard. Depending on the sum of cash, that would be tempting.
  22. Transfer Talk Topic

    Donarumma (1st choice), Cech (2nd choice/mentor) would be the ideal IMO.
  23. Transfer Talk Topic

    Italian media saying our next choice after Alisson is Donarumma. My first choice tbh. Enormous potential and longevity.
  24. Transfer Talk Topic

    I think if Rugani is coming in and starts, Zappacosta also starts. As stated it's a coin toss between Zappacosta and Moses, but I think Rugani will communicate better with Zappacosta and settle better as a result. I can see this being the plan knowing roughly how Sarri sets up: -----------------------------Courtois--------------------------- Zappacosta----Rugani------Azpilicueta---Alonso ---------------------------Jorginho---------------------------- --------------------Kante----------Fabregas------------- ----Willian--------------------------------------------Hazard ----------------------------Morata----------------------------- Of those positions, I think we could look to build on Fabregas and Morata's places in the team - we have options in both positions, but there are probably improvements available. That third Midfield spot in particular would be better in the hands of a box-to-box type of player - RLC/Barkley can do this, but are they good enough?
  25. Transfer Talk Topic

    I wouldn’t necessarily be hugely against selling Hazard, but we need a very big fee and need replacements lined up - I would demand Asensio and a substantial amount of cash myself.
