Default John Murtough

Time to put this guy under the spotlightÖ
Fletcher and he interviewed Erik back in April, Ralph had made it very clear where the weaknesses of the squad lay, so a sketch of a plan concerning summer business must have been discussed.
Leaving aside the claim that ETH vetoed the defender signing the club had lined up, the decision to leave all summer additions in the managers court was in my view typical Glazer incompetence.
But getting unwanted players out of the club should have been Murtoughís primary concern since last May and yet only Periera has left for a fee and today we hear of Telles going if we pay half his wages.
We saw Chong reaffirm his unsuitability for a Utd yet the talk still is of loans.
If we are to have any hope that this club finally has the right people in place things must begin to move now.
Erik has had a look for himself he must begin to trim the squad .

Whatever fixed now

I thought it was a Woodward thing to just hang on to players as assets on the books.
But that game on sunday showed the squad still contains some younger players who will never make it but we em unable to move them on if only to recoup the cost of their raining.

He seems to be blaming Murtough for the fact we have loads of shit players on high wages, and also having a go for him actually buying players the manager has asked for.

Fat fingered more likely

Chong for instance, how many loans will it take before he reaches the level required?
Garner clearly isnít ready to anchor Utdís midfield and will go on loan again but not now back to the club he helped promote cause we were so keen to get Henderson out of the club.
Telles was captain of his former club but we canít realise a fee for him
This before we get to VdB. are we waiting for the signing of FDJ to unlock his talent?

These issues should have been addressed in the normal running of the club not left until August

I don't know if you've noticed or not in the last 10 years but we're not run very well.

Indeed, Iím wondering what is holding us back?
Erik is step in the right direction but the changes in the club hierarchy need to contribute too.

It appears the 'throw a ton of money at shite' approach didn't work under Mourinho and Solskjaer, so they've gone for a safer 'don't spend much and then we won't be under so much pressure to finish top 4' method.

You know Murtough hasn't been running the club these last few years right?

You can't bin millions of first team squad members every window, last count we'd cleared 12 off the books, potential 14....

And yes this includes youth...

Itís not again

It was what little quality the squad possessed left on a free this year.
This is about getting rid of identified deadwood.

the fact murtough has decided to bring saf and gill back into the fold says it all.

he is more concerned with the optics regarding united.

there is next to nothing that points towards the future about bringing back our manager and ceo from a decade a go.

Chelsea ,Liverpool even City manage to get fees for fringe players.
The club say they need to sell to buy, fine, Murtough has known this since May and yet has done nothing does this failure mean we must accept fewer squad additions.
