    who do we need to get in to win the title

    Perhaps an Arab buying the Glasiers out would be the best hope that we have. Think Woodward should be kept well away from the football side of things. He's a shit negotiater when trying to buy players! Makes Gill look like an absolute superstar!

    Realistic expectancies for 2019/20

    Seriously, next season has the potential to be identical to this one. Shit football, errors throughout the team, unable to string 6 passes together without giving the ball away. Losing to lots of lesser quality teams....etc. Unless there is an enormous transfer activity buying and selling, and with Woodward in charge even getting a minor player in is long winded! The question is how far from the relegation battle will we be? Will Ole even survive the season if things turn similar to his managerial time at Cardiff?

    How far off are we?

    Liverpool have moved light years ahead of us and they and City could rule the Premier league for at least the next ten years! We have to start taking steps in the right direction, and gradually build up to challenging for the top four every year and unfortunately youth development is the way forward. I say unfortunately because it's a process that would take 5 years plus to start showing benefits. The justification for it is that you get a team of players who want to win for each other and the club. What is immediately needed is to bring the players wages down to the standard that the club are currently at and that is so highly unlikely when the strategy to obtain players at this club is to offer them higher wages than anyone else in order to get them. That is partly the crux of the problem as we see week in and week out. Win or lose, immense effort or going through the motions, they are still taking massive wages and lets face it we'd all do as little as possible if we're still getting huge salarys regardless of results!

    Squad overall

    Still waiting for Ed Woodward to pull his finger out of his arse and start buying and selling! Or are we gonna wait until Champions leagle final is over and Spurs and Liverpool can join in the transfer scramble? Or his he waiting to find out if he can buy Bale on the last day of the window!

    Throw out the rubbish now

    Let's turn it on its head. Hopefully next season there'll only be these 3 players named in the starting 11. Lindelof, Rashford, Shaw. So take your pick on which of the rest will have gone!

    Summer 2019 - transfer targets

    Not at all, for more than we paid to buy him. But he is prepared to reduce his earnings to go and play for them. Does that mean he only came to us because of the big wages? Certainly didn't do it for the acclaim and chance to make United great again! Cos he well failed there! Outclassed by many midfielders of other teams we played including Cardiff and Huddersfield!

    Summer 2019 - transfer targets

    May have found it. De Gea asked to stay for final year of his contract so PSG can get him for free after next season. Some of the existing players are really showing loyalty to the club....and not just using United as a cash cow....trouble is I can't see Who! The more we can sell on and remove, the better the chance of getting some genuine footballers in!

    Oh, what else did I overlook?

    Summer 2019 - transfer targets

    BBC football gossip today. Two disturbing items. 1 United confident in retaining Rashfords services. Prepared to triple his wages to £300,000 a week. 2 Pogba prepared to accept wage cut in order to move to Real Madrid. Need I say anymore about why United are so shit and maycontinue that way?

    PL Matchday 38: Man Utd vs Cardiff City

    Yes I do remember. Yet even then I seemed to have some players that I enjoyed watching playing for us. Especially liked Gordon Hill even when we were in the second division. He was always capable of some magic. But this lot now! Maybe it's the obscene wages they get but I am disgusted with the showings of some of these supposed star players we currently have. To be outclassed by inferior standard players not just once but recently in most games.....where is their personal pride? Obviously it doesn't matter to them as long they earn more than others! Very sad!

    PL Matchday 38: Man Utd vs Cardiff City

    This has been United's annis horibalus. Glad it's all over with. Just wish I was looking forward to Pochettino being our new manager! Anyway, as I've stated quite a few times this season, let's start shifting most of this squad out the exit door. Save a fortune in wages and get some young players in who want to play top football and not just buy the most expensive Ferrari s to ride about in. Scour the championship and European leagues for up and coming youngsters, and get a squad together that want to play attractive, pacey, attacking football and blend them all together without paying astronomical wages. Dan James should just be the start of a massive transfer market!

    PL Matchday 38: Man Utd vs Cardiff City

    We could always buy half the Cardiff and Huddersfield teams and sell the shite we've got.....might save us from relegation next season.

    Summer 2019 - transfer targets

    How come a 29 year old midfielder Herrera is being allowed to join PSG for nothing, this summer? What great business sense allows a peak age player to run his contract out and get the club zilch in transfer fees?

    PL Matchday 38: Man Utd vs Cardiff City

    If the stinking politicians had delivered Brexit as they should have, then it would have been a good statement to the rest of the EU, that the Premier League is the best in the world, that's why we've got a British ( politically correct rather than English ) final! Just changing the subject slightly, it was great to see United's women's captain on TV talking about her inclusion in the England squad for this summers world cup. Even if her accent was pure scouse!

    The good news thread

    Like it or not, unfortunately it's the truth. We are so far away from their level of football, that it would take 5 impressive summer transfer seasons to get to their currant standards. Even the last couple of great champions league attempts, Barca totally outplayed us. Now I know that they are not quite as good as they were then, but could we have turned around a 3 nil defeat with a 4 nil win? And before you say I'm a Liverpool fan, I assure you I'm not. As a United fan I suffered for many years way back when Liverpool were challenging for the title every year and we were wallowing mid table before SAF's glorious years. The trouble is that I can see it all happening again for years, the way we are floundering!
