I agree with the SAF and Gill productive transfer market strategy.ArizonaRed wrote: ↑Mon Jul 30, 2018 3:40 pmI don’t buy this argument that the club has not backed Mourinho financially. I don’t have the numbers in front of me but even by todays stupid money transfers market we have forked out a lot of money. My biggest problem is that since Sir Alex and David Gill left (The ED era) our transfer policy has been all over the place; there doesn’t appear to be and rhyme or reason to the players we want to bring in and pursuit of player is done more with a view to the headlines they will create rather than the good they will do the team. We have spent money, we just haven’t done it with any smarts.
Some of our player went further in the WC than expected but should it have been a surprise to anyone that United would be one of the biggest supplier of players to all national teams - NO -and yet we are surprised that we don’t have enough quality player to field a decent team, so we bloody the youth.
I wouldn't say Zidane, but FYI... Zidane has left Real. If there was a way we could pry Poch away from Spurs, I'd be over the moon.Sigmar wrote: ↑Sun Aug 05, 2018 11:25 pmWhen you hear what Phil Jones had to say in his interview after this game, I'm not surprised that he is pissed off with certain players. Jones admitted that he hadn't done any training when on holiday, where is the professionalism of todays players ?
Jones for one didn't really have a busy world cup, neither did Rashford, and if other players returned after the break in poor fitness, no wonder he has a rant.
On the subject of getting rid of him, who do you replace him with, some fans are asking for Zidane, FFS they really think he will leave Real for Manchester !
Who else is there who will come to United now with the window closing in a few days time ?
We signed Herrera right after LVG took over. However we had been tracking Herrera ever since we played Athletic Bilboa about 2 years earlier. We tried to sign him on the last day of the previous summer when Moyes was in charge but the paperwork didn't go through in time. So technically LVG was in charge, but we started our interest before that. I know some people on here tried to give Moyes credit for signing him but I have a feeling he had never heard of Herrera until the club told him Aug 31, 2013 that they were buying him.
Like he followed Fabregas, Ronaldo, Bale at United. Too bad he was to small time to sign anyone other than the big bog brush.
This is not entirely true. I don't think he ever said he did not like his players, only that he was left to train players whom he'd likely not use, hence the alleviation that new signings bring. If he had the bulk of the WC posse I don't think you'd heard him raising an alarm. Opinion all mine.
I wouldn't brag too much about that if I were you !Relly wrote: ↑Sun Sep 30, 2018 4:22 pmI have always been a big Mourinho fan and there is some true to this 3rd season thing, but I think the problem with Mourinho is that he is a bit of strict authoritarian type and most modern day footballers are a bunch of soft bitches that need their egos constantly stroked and they won't get that for him. I really hate this, but I think we need to find a manager that can deal with these littles babies that footballers have become.
