Yup, makes no sense at all...

Exactly. We're a second tier team at the moment; players don't give a £#%&! about history, they care about playing time, what competitions they're playing in, likelihood of trophies, possibly climate, and money.

The only thing we really have to offer out of that lot over the likes of barca, madrid et al is money. But i'm not even sure we've got much of that to give these days.

Basically we're relying on ETH selling his ideas to the player and given how we're struggling to get players who actually played for him previously....


Good times.

Combine this my the incompetence from the board and recruitment too. The only time a player would run at joining United is if they were a proper fan of the club and 99% that isnít the case .

The history of the club will never be tarnished and can never be. But 2022 Man Utdís reputation is dogshit. Players throwing the managers under the bus, owners not giving a shit about the football, having a shite recruitment team. Not being in the champions league.

Itís going to take a while to get competing again, doesnít help when 70/80% of of struggle is self imposed and has no reason or push to change as the owners still make their millions doing £#%&! all . As far as theyíre concerned their business model is working perfectly

Because he is not wanted there anymore and they have lined up Bernardo Silva as his replacement

Because ten hag has decided to pursue a deal and make it his priority.

I didnít say heíd prefer to play for United rather than Barca. Itís very likely the case that heíd rather play for Barca. That isnít the same as not wanting to play for United. He hasnít been happy with being played the way Barca have played him and he knows Barca want him out, and probably realised that was on the cards 12 months ago.

Think itís fair to say he wouldnít give united a momentís thought if ten hag wasnít manager, for the reasons stated elsewhere. But I think itís highly likely ten hagís united is the club he wants to play for in the event he leaves Barca. Otherwise other clubs would be publicly in for him. If you think ten hag is pursuing the deal whilst knowing de Jong doesnít want to join, then I guess thereís nothing else to say.

Luckhurst saying Barca have lowered their price and now want a guaranteed £65m.

Just get it done or walk away ffs.

With out a doubt the most boring transfer in the history of football.

Sticking point has probably always been united wanting to do something ridiculous like only pay 5m now and the rest over 5 years. Such is the joy of having glazers and their debt.

Jesus guys. United are one of the three biggest clubs on the planet.

You're making out like we've turned into Sunderland ffs. You OOT lads might need to get a new team?

I mean I think you're taking the piss, but what barometer are you using to have us in the top 3 clubs?

Support, sure. But I don't think players give much of a £#%&! about that. Look at the players that city sign to play in that soulless bowl.

Value? Maybe, but it is almost utterly irrelvant when the glazers are taking huge chunks out of it and we're riddled with debt.


P.s. you're the OOT'er you cheeky @#%&!
