    How far off are we?

    Everything is rotten from top to bottom. The owners, the recruitment, the attitude in the dressing room. When its like that even new signings will only make so much difference.

    What are we doing as a club?

    Not sure it'll be that easy to get rid of the glazers. With enough pressure they might remove woodward though hopefully.

    Summer Football Tournaments

    You know you're old when you see gheorghe hagis son playing for romania. England perhaps would've been better trying to win this with those that have been promoted to the seniors. Winning these tournaments is a good learning curve for players. Still even the current u21s are probably valued at 50m+ by their clubs. I wonder if united had any scouts at the tournament.

    Jesse Lingard 2018/19

    If ferguson was still in charge he'd have been shipped off to the lower leagues by now if only for his nauseating social media antics. The glorious fa youth winning side that he was part of (pogba, morrison et al) has turned out to be a bunch of cunts.

    Juan Mata 2018/19

    I suppose the one good thing to note is thst he can't possibly get any slower.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 2018/19

    I'm sure he's desperate to succeed at the job and that's perhaps blinding the reality that we've only signed one backup player and not looking like signing many others of note and he'll be the scapegoat for when we're midtable in october.

    Summer 2019 - transfer targets

    A lot of those players were never world beaters to begin with or their best days were already behind them. Theyre the kinds in the 20-30 million range who lesser clubs would've probably only been made to pay half for. There is no reason why we should struggle to attract decent players and without paying over the odds every single time. Having a high profile manager can help but ultimately if the board is clueless about transfer dealings which they appear to be then it'll only undermine the manager.

    Paul Pogba

    I'd happily offload him if I believed in Ed and co capacities to sign quality replacements.

    Game Of Thrones

    The last two seasons minus a few good episodes have been like comparing disneys star wars to lucas' earlier efforts.

    Cricket

    Only if you count the west indies, who are an amalgamation of carribean islands of jamaica, barbados, trinidad etc. The only decent sport americans appear to take seriously is ice hockey.

    Summer 2019 - transfer targets

    They certainly had some positive impact as we'd have finished those seasons a lot worse without such investment. Last summer was a mediocre window. Only two players brought in. Neither of whom have commanded a regular place. This summer given how we finshed the last campaign, we can hardly make a case for not spending big.

    Summer 2019 - transfer targets

    No it was 2013 when moyes came in. Yes its been that long... Patience isn't an issue for me. I just want to feel like the club is being run at least reasonably competently and we're heading in the right direction with building the squad.

    Summer 2019 - transfer targets

    We need to start making high calibre signings not players who'd struggle to make the bench of top four clubs. This has all the making of another shambolic summer in the transfer market on a par with 2013.

    Real Madrid 2019/2020: The Rebuild

    Madrid don't fuck around when it comes to signing players.
