Not if we sell players for funds like we did this summer?

Sign Maddison for 70m and sell Pogba for 120m= profit and a marquee signing.

Instead Id be all for us looking for the next Maddison, James, Ali, Robertson etc but cant see it being the way woody wants to go long term.

Football isn't a complicated game and I maintain no matter how the game has changed over the years you stand a much better chance of winning by having a strong midfield.

I can't remember the last time United had one. Anything United do this season, any win, will have to be ground out IMO as a result of not having one. It's f***ing daft.

Another issue would be any player with ambition wanting to come here.

Call me a city fan (and most will ) but why would anyone who wants to win stuff join united, seriously. We are so far away from competing that it would be three or four top players to take a huge gamble in their career to come here.

f***ing shocked that DDG re signed poor bastard wont win another thing before he hangs up his gloves.

Sad but true!

This. Take a look around, happens with all revolving door management. I can't argue any of those managers should have stayed, but how much have the club paid out sacking them?

It is incompetence right at the top. With any luck the commercial profits will take a hit as we drift into mid table obscurity, and the Glazers will go.

Nothing will improve while they own the club..

Summer will see Matic leave and Pogba at the least.

Pogba money used to off set the bit we spend.

its actually a f***en joke tbf.

The money spent over the last 6 years and seeing a side like that put out, absolutely piss poor midfield with very little up front. As soon as I saw the line up last week and this I couldnt see where a goal was going to come from but we won a penalty so got away with it last week.

Don't know where we go from here at all, we have so little right at present from Owners, to CEO, to Manager (sorry but theres just no way), to the spine of the team. Truly

Pogba gets right under my skin, and I wouldn't mind seeing both him and Matic go, but once they do that means we will need to buy at least another 3-4 midfielders to also make up the shortfall from the summer just gone (and that's assuming Garner breaks into the team this year), and two of them will have to be world class.

After the shit show of 'considering' and 'having a good look' of last summer, I have no confidence that we will be able to do that.

As irritating as Pogba is, the last two games have confirmed he is our best player and the only midfielder we have capable of creating chances. We absolutely need him back ASAP.

If I was a top player I wouldn't be even entertaining the idea of going to Utd no matter how much they offered or what they promised in terms of future signings

I might be a Utd fan but I would need to look after my career and at the moment Utd is a graveyard for talented players

All this talk of Sancho is utterly fanciful
He's not coming to Utd when he sees what a shambles we are on the pitch and how everyone who comes to Utd aren't coached to be better players but actually regress as players

Even when Klopp finished outside the top 4 the first 2 seasons at Liverpool you could see they were on the right path and he was improving players
You could take the chance and join them with the belief that you could be a part of potentially something special
Watching Utd at the moment you can't think this ship is going anywhere except to the bottom of the ocean

Let it go, the team is finished . If we are lucky we get someone at the board level who knows what we are doing. But it wont happen. Its over. Good whilst it lasted.

Ole will be wrongly fired around dec and it will start again
Woodward will be "looking" for a DOF and thats what the brand will be pushing. "This time man utd have a DOF" when in reality woodward will keep control of everything.
