I am not sure why you made a statement like that
I am sure you have your reasons
My position is clear
I want us to build a team with a long term objective of winning things
We need a combination of age experience,skill and strength to come together under a long term plan for the future success of the team
The owners priorities appear to make as much money as possible and if the team does well then great and if it doesn't then fornicate off
We had a centre forward that was doing well AND developing nicely
His name is Martial.He was brought in to replace another shirt seller,Falcao,which if i remember correctly was lauded on this forum by some as one of the worlds greats
At that time i said he was a crippled has been who would do very well to make an impact
Well he sold a lot of shirts,got a great song and did fornicate all
He cost the club nothing.In fact he made money but did nothing on the field,which funnily enough is MY preferred place to make your reputation
Now where have i heard the above story again?
Oh yes.His name is Schweinsteiger!!
Old has been with a year in him at best
Cost nothing and made money
Got a great song,sold a lot of shirts and held up the development of the midfield
Praised on this forum by some as an all time great who would massively influence this club
The midfield has now become our main strength since he was made to train with the reserves
Nobody in the squad learned anything off him
Finally they have got rid of him as well
You will forget that Falcao and Schweinsteiger ever play for this club by 2020/21 season
So is this happening anywhere else in the team
I would suggest that Zlatan is holding up the long term development of the striking positions that should be coming along under Martial and Rashford
Both had great promise
Martials agent is now suggesting that he should be allowed to talk to Sevilla.This has not been allowed but the suggestion is not being made because Martial is happy
He is a young kid who is barely playing and is not on a great contract.He is on the same contract as when he signed
He wants to develop,prove himself and earn serious money
Zlatan is stopping that
If you think Zlatan is a hero and carrying this team then that is your opinion.It is just not mine
You will forget Zlatan ever played for this team in 10 years time
This is a club about tradition and community
Your serious Manchester United fan can tell you the names of everybody from Munich and that was 60 years
Your current 50/50 scarf man with 3 ipads,a camera and a mobile phone can't tell you anything about even George Best other than he has a song that somebody has taught him parrot fashion about "going on the piss with Georgie Best"
He hasn't a clue what you are talking about and he definately knows fornicate all about Denis Law
The most he knows about Bobby Charlton is that he has paid £499 plus taxes to sit in his stand
You see there was football before Sky and the internet!!
