    It must sicken teams when Stockley Park and the refs do everything they can to give Merchandise United the points.

    First they deny a clear penalty, then the Fergie watch gets dusted off.....

    Henderson (7), Dalot (7), Bailly (7), Lindelof (7), Williams (6)

    Good for these guys to experience a clean sheet.


    Hopefully pickup a CB to push Lindelof into a backup position before the transfer window closes.

    Kinda crap that two 30 million quid CBs (a few years ago when 30 mill bought more than today) are only fit for backup roles.

    Ancelotti must be chuckling to himself.

    He gets paid 14 million a year to make decisions like ‘Get one midfielder who can win the ball back, one who can get it past the halfway line, and one who can create a goal scoring opportunity from it’.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made just one signing this summer with Donny van de Beek arriving from Ajax for 35mIn his typically forthright style, former Manchester United skipper Gary Neville has underlined what many of the club's fans are thinking. Why are the club finding it so hard to sign anyone?
    Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified three areas of weakness, a wide right-sided player, left-back and central defence.

    But, despite being linked with scores of players, so far they are yet to add to their solitary close-season purchase, 35m Dutch midfielder Donny van de Beek from Ajax.
    "It's appalling that in this market, which is probably the easiest in Premier League history to get transfers done, that United haven't done more yet," grumbled Neville on Twitter. "The others are managing to get things over the line, why not United?"
    Neville's comments heap more pressure on United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and his transfer negotiator, head of corporate development, Matt Judge.
    The Sancho pursuit

    Solskjaer made Jadon Sancho his number one transfer target but Borussia Dortmund have so far resisted United's advances.
    The German club did indicate a willingness to do business earlier in the summer but placed a 10 August deadline on a deal being done to coincide with their return to pre-season training.
    United felt the deadline was arbitrary and ignored it. At the time, they were more concerned at Dortmund's asking price - over 100m - which they felt was too high, and the difficulty of negotiating through a third party, which is at the Bundesliga outfit's request.
    It is understood Sancho's salary and agents' fees around the transfer are sorted. But, so far, Dortmund are sticking to their mantra that the deadline to do a deal has gone.
    They have rejected United's latest offer and insist they will not sell. The question now, is do United continue the pursuit or look elsewhere?
    Jadon Sancho has been Manchester United's primary transfer target this summerPotentially, there are deals that can be done. Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele and Ivan Perisic at Inter Milan are two quality players who are obtainable.
    However, whether either would be willing to join on loan - Perisic spent last season at Bayern Munich, who decided against making the move permanent - is open to debate.
    Watford's Ismaila Sarr has also been mentioned. The advantage here is that internal transfers between Premier League and Football League clubs can continue until 16 October. But Watford are adamant they are only interested in a straight sale and Sarr is unproven at the level United are looking for.
    Defensive dilemma

    United have identified Porto left-back Alex Telles as a player of interest. However, as with Sancho, they feel the asking price is too high. In this instance it is 18m for a player who is out of contract next summer and, because the transfer window has shifted, can sign pre-contract terms in three months' time.
    The financial side cannot be ignored.
    Neville may believe deals are easy to do but in addition to not signing players, United are having difficulty realising their assets.
    Andreas Pereira is set to join Lazio on loan but there are half a dozen other first-team players available for sale that United are yet to move on.
    Chris Smalling has been training on his own, hoping to return to Roma, where he enjoyed a successful loan spell last season. Smalling knows agreement is not certain, which would effectively turn him into an outcast.
    It is not what the former England man wants. However, he will accept the situation if that is what occurs, leaving United picking up a hefty wage bill for someone who is not getting picked. Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo are other central defenders who fit into the same category.
    Without reducing the head count, it is difficult to see United making further additions in an area of the pitch where problems clearly exist, which only increases the spotlight Neville is shining on the club.

    I reckon I know more than Ole, and would sacrifice a new LB for a CF.


    Martial should be wide left, not the number 9, Williams filling in for Fatty Shaw isn't perfect, but shouldn't a priority over a real, decent, proper #9 and shifting Martial out left.

    It looks like Edinson Cavani is about to sign.

    Short term, yes, but...

    What a very 'Woodward' signing he would be.

    Guglielmone (his agent) laid it all out earlier in the year when no club could get Cavani out of PSG as his contract ran down. The striker wanted to “fulfill his dream” of joining Atletico Madrid but the Spanish club could never make the figures add up.

    “If it were for money,” the agent said, “Edi would have gone to England, Manchester or Chelsea.”

    Not if he's on 12 million quid for the year.

    And they'll be lucky to get half a season out of him.

    Yet again we see the fruition of Woodward and the Glazers failing to back the manager and instead preferring to milk us dry 'cos CL places make you rich.

    That said, no Manchester United team should be beaten like that.

    And, before you start, you can all fuck off.

    Patrice Evra was very emotional tonight, but his mate, Pogba, is another serial failure.

    Sort em out Ole!

    I love you Ole unlike that fairweather fat Brummy prick a few posts above.
