Quieroz intimated that the plan was to play with all 4. Then he left and so did our tactical nous

Getting beat at Liverpool trying that was a factor too

I always thought that was the case but Ronaldo missed that match.

Never got close to breaking a world transfer record
2000-2005, bollocks. It was the first time we could match them on wages, and every summer we bought a top player for 20-30m.

If we were matching the biggest clubs in Europe on wages and transfer fees then why weren't we trying to sign the very best players in the world

Veron, Rooney and Rio were very good players but they weren't in the top 10 list for the Balon d'Or when we signed them

We still weren't up with the top spenders in Europe during that period

Who would buy De Gea for the money he is worth? PSG? He's a £100m+ player all day long, if anyone took him you just go back to Atleti & get Oblak for £70m or so on far less wages & spend the balance on a right back.

It's not that hard.

Because fergie chose the players he chose. He preferred youngish players with hunger who were already good enough to be the best in England, and with the potential to develop into the very best in Europe. And clearly we weren’t going to beat Madrid for the galacticos. No club was.

2000-2005 was a long way from the limitations prior.

Yeah, he did now that you mention it. That it helped put off SAF playing Berbs and Tevez together remains true tho.
