Bit early? Perhaps…
Anyway, expecting Spuds to splash some cash after a “poundsavers” summer, being linked a few (as is everybody)… haven’t seen the “Bale back to Spuds for the new Stadium” headline… yet!! 🙂
So, 11 games in, who would you like to see show up in your Christmas Stockings?6th November 2018 at 12:02 pm #27931
Liverpool are ‘paying’ for not freshening up the attack, so an attacker would be good. Whether the Fekir deal will be resurrected I don’t know? But there has to be some pragmatism as January is a difficult window. Off the top of my head as to who else might be realistically available, he might be getting on a bit now, but I’ve always rated Dzeko. Not sure he’s a Klopp player though. But he always came up with a goal in the big moments and his scoring stats are very impressive. Could be a great relatively cheap impact player.6th November 2018 at 12:11 pm #27932

Problem I see for Pool is a bit similar to the Spuds, when fit I would imagine Salah, Mane and Gnasher would be 1st choice, going to a very confident player (or bloody expensive!) who would want to fight for a spot against that lot. Plus, no idea about Pool’s wallet, but even with the Wee Phil money, got to be a bit empty hasn’t it?6th November 2018 at 12:44 pm #27933
Banjo, ideally we need first team competition for those front 3. Several teams have now learnt to somewhat nullify them, so we need something different up there. Probably not much to spend though after the summer outlay as you say.6th November 2018 at 4:33 pm #27949
Stay away from that ugly Welsh twat called Bale,so fucking past his best and injury prone.Only sign Aldi if Jones,Rojo,and Lindelof are gone.Sanchez.Mata,Herrera, to do one.6th November 2018 at 5:17 pm #27950
I’d be very happy if we brought in Ake and got rid of Smalling and/or Jones. Really like Ake. I saw him in a youth game for Chelsea against Utd a few years back and he was the best player on the pitch. He’s really developed well.
Other than that, I don’t know who we could get in. We need so many players replacing to even think about challenging25th November 2018 at 9:29 am #28438
Things going from bad to worse for Utd with De Gea set to join PSG. Can’t blame him at all. It’s a shit league but he’s guaranteed CL footy there along with a decent chance of winning it, not to mention the attraction of living in Paris compared to Manchester!
Massive window for Utd. Do the board trust Jose with another huge spending spree after how much we’ve wasted so far. To be fair, we don’t know if they have been Mourinho’s choices but it’s very much a case of stick or twist with the next window.25th November 2018 at 10:26 am #2844025th November 2018 at 10:29 am #28442
Ed-I really feel sorry for the best goalie in the world not to be able to win major trophies every season.DDG should join one of PSG,Bayern or Juve-in January.United should do a Dortmund-sign young talents from allover the world,forget the quick-fix approach,its not working.
ps: I say=shaft,deep and hard,lol.

For those alone,this fella deserves to the best paid and win trophies-every year!25th November 2018 at 2:44 pm #28448
I read the De Gea to Paris rumours too. Can’t blame him if he goes, but for United it’ll be like the final nail in the coffin. It’s not just losing a worldclass keeper, it’s also losing someone who actually knows how to win the league. He’s a SAF player. And he’s in his prime. You can’t replace him.
If I had to mention one position to upgrade on I wouldn’t know what to say. I think we’re dire all over the pitch.
I’d like to see Young stay as a back up/ squad player, but Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Fellaini, Rojo, Lindelöf, Mata, Sanchez and perhaps Lukaku should all be looked to sell on.
I guess I’d like a striker in the mould of Van Nistelrooy to play up front with Martial and Rashford. Someone with a killer instinct and a worldclass first touch. Lukaku hasn’t got that.
But who fits that description? Perhaps Kane. But would he come to United? No way.

Nine 😊 ah yes but your club won’t be stupid enough to offer him £800k a week!27th November 2018 at 5:51 pm #28533
Is Liverpool really ready to let Fabinho go already?

They did let Wobbie Keane go after just half a season. He was a pretty expensive signing at the time. Selling him back then proved a smart move. Why wouldn’t they do the same thing again if they see the signs things just aren’t going to work out? In that case better now than later before his value drops.
