This is the third transfer window when we failed to bring someone there. The previous two time it came and bite our ass.

Poor management.


please don’t post anything critical regarding the club. too many on here have their heads up their arses and can’t handle it.


He's spot on in what he's said, we got away with it last season, foolish to take that chance again.


I think is the FFP and we have problems with that and all those things around it are true, that is why we don't buy anyone. I refuse to think we are that blind.


PeP fucked up spunking money on Mahrez when we didn't need to beef up that part of the field.


I have yet to see any evidence that the price of Mahrez affected any other purchases. We were still after Fred/Jorginho after we secured him. It was availability/desire to come not price that spiked us.

In my opinion, we needed three good performers to increase competition, but only got one. We will need another three next year.

Left back has arguably been our problem for the last 2 seasons (Even if Delph managed to defy all expectations and played well there ) and we could never rely on players who just do not play , naturally , in that position - We should have spent that 60 k on a left back...there was no need to buy Mehrez.

Nothing stopped us doing both. Mahez is irrelevant to LB debate.

And the same goes for a Fern replacement.

For most, it is. Many years ago a manager came to me and said he didn't know where to play me, left wing or left back. I thought he was taking the piss as I was the highest scorer and had quite a few assists, was he saying that I needed to be left in the dressing room?

Turned out that decent left-footers were at a premium and he wanted me to do everything. I moved on soon afterwards after quite a few games as wing-back. My new team needed a striker, where I could use both feet ;-)

It's nice to have the option! I couldn't use either foot so they put me at right back.

He was Mase. A model pro who did things 100% right, and worked with Pep on how he left us to Roma. Unlike players like Milner or Sancho who chose to be cunts. City have kept there council. But that's why we are the best. Fuck em.

Look at Dortmund who lost £150 million of players to Bayern for no fees over 3 seasons. So BVD have taken the medicine have regrouped and pinched one in Sancho along with some other young players. We are the best football club on the planet, way ahead in every department. Even City will lose out when agents muddy the waters. I know if Jose was still at the swamp, De Gea and Rashford were off to PSG or BARCA in the summer if they could engineer it.

His brother is his agent and a pal of my mates, verbal agreements despite being in contract, Jose stays it was get us out of here along with Pogba. United shit themselves. Players and agents never answer just like the Chelsea kid, Bayern have tapped him up. Every fooker knows it, and the bent German twats just sit back to see if the Agent and player can take the heat.

He scored a few. Sadly, people tend to forget his abilities when they talk about the best free kick takers of the last 20-25 years.
