Someone's having a real laugh - sperm of gollum to Utd.

Guardian going full Manchester Guardian - Jamie Jackson reporting they are interested in Rice, Kane, Varane and Sancho! 

Just the £350m this summer then?

£350million might be optimistic.

Levy will squeeze them. Regardless of whether it hammers Spuds’ own transfer plans, he’ll haggle remorselessly for a few extra mill. And appointing a new manager will take first priority regardless. 
West Ham, in Europe (until Moyes crashes them out at the first hurdle), are under no pressure to sell. 
Dortmund never sell cheap, and United have hardly improved their negotiating position by making it clear that Sancho is their first (and only?) choice for that position. 
I don’t have a view on Varane, other than United spend an eight-figure sum on a new central defender every single summer, and it never seems to make any difference. Even if they don’t overpay, I can’t see how he’ll improve them to any great extent.

As long as they don't end up with Sancho, I'm fine with it. Rice, Kane, and Varane don't really solve any of their problems as long as Ole's at the wheel.

 

Sancho, on the other hand, could be like when Ronaldo went there. Not sure he turns out that good under that manager, but if they get a decent attacking manager at some point Sancho will be an absolute monster.

I don't think Rice is that great but he massively improves one of their weakest areas. He is a mile better than either McTominay or Fred.

Rice is decent. He doesn’t play in a fashionable position, he doesn’t do flashy stuff, but he’s got a defined role and he does it well. 
The issue isn’t “Is Rice good enough?” but “How many similar players can United buy for the same role, all of whom cost a lot of cash, without the team particularly improving?”

McTominay is supposed to be one of the big hopes of their youth system. Fred cost the thick end of £50million. Matic cost £40million. Rice would make it four defensive midfielders, all of them internationals. 
They’ve been doing the same thing with central defenders, buying expensive international players who invariably disappoint (or at least don’t have the desired impact) and get replaced by an even more expensive international player. Over the last five years they've bought Bailly for £30million, Lindelöf for around the same sum, and finally made Slab-head the most expensive defender in the world. Yet the number of league goals they’ve conceded has gone from 35 in van Gaal’s last season to 44 this term. 
The issue is more structural than ‘Sign the following players’. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll be delighted for them to keep backing Solskjær with time and money. But the irony is that it will cost them less money, and get them far better results, if they simply get a top manager with a proper backroom structure.

The thing is, they can improve practically every area of the pitch. So, whoever they end up buying will always have the potential to make them better.

 

And sadly, there are lots of players who will make them better. And lots who will be wanting to sign for them.

 

The key to all this is OGS. Like Lampard at Chelsea.

 

The minute someone competent comes in, they'll start challenging again.

Ole Baggins is amongst the five nominees for manager of the year. Amazing.

Great stuff...Hopefully he wins it as there’s no way you can dump the manager of the year

Before you came out the other night, I was duly informed the reason UTD haven't challenged is because of Woodward. He buys shit players that are not always first choice players. 

 

I was told and I quote "doesn't matter how much you spend if Woodward is in charge".

Lets see if hes brave enough to actually watch a Liverpool v United game with us next season

Probably being biased, but Jurgen should get manager of the year for getting us third in last season's circumstances. 

 

Failing that, Bielsa should get it. Great first season back up for Leeds, and you can be pretty sure they won't implode like Sheffield United did.

This would have been perfect for Through The Wind & Rain’s Mancwatch section. Absolutely laughable “journalism” in today’s Daily Manc.

Used to love reading Steve's 'Manc Watch' in TTW&R. Reckon we should have a perma thread here to carry on the good work!

Just waiting for the Echo to say how it's like a new signing for Liverpool.

Let’s be honest, it’s much closer to one than some they’ve claimed will be.
 

I hope they finish third with 9 points more than last season.
