It might be he'd relish the challenge of lifting the club back to where it belongs. Following the lineage of great wingers, great number 7s.

Maybe I'm stuck in sentiment but I still think United is still an attraction for the best. People cite Liverpool in the 90s but the game was very localised compared to the global glamour now.
Described Pogba there.

Needs to be done properly. Not paying over the odds for shite but paying what’s required for the right players. In one window. 10-12 proper players in 8-10 out.

You're setting yourself for disappointment.

We only do one transfer at a time!

I think we'll look back in a few years at Tuanzebe, Gomes and Greenwood saving us £100m. They are special talents. Elsewhere we'd need to buy but I trust Ole in knowing how to build a team fit in United's image.

For example he's signed James from the championship because he fits a certain style of player and better snap him up early than wait for someone else to turn him into a 50m player. The lower leagues have thrown up Alli, Maddison, Brooks, Robertson and Harry Maguire in recent times. We missed out on those talents at the time. Maybe this is the plan Ole, Phelan and co want and I support it. Compliment that scouting with good established players around Europe too. It's closer to a winner than our big name brand approach.

I know, hence the ‘not ever going to happen’ and ‘fold the club’..

Address the midfield and everything else will look better. We've got some excellent talent but the middle of the park is relegation fodder.

Shouldn't take more than £300m

I’d be all for us looking in the championship for the next Dan James tbh. I just worry that it won’t be marquee enough for Woodward as a long term strategy.

No clue how he’s doing this season but Bowen at Hull was supposed to be a very talented player last season?

I agree that all three of those kids are talented, but the worry is playing them regularly in this side will stunt their growth? We’ve seen it happen in the last few years with Depay, Januzaj and Will Keane and this side is worse than the sides those three played in.

Which surely goes against the £90m limit we are being told about, no?
