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

It would be highly entertaining watching the three way fight to take penalties between Zlatan, Pogba and Rashford. My money’s on Zlatan.

Smalling off to Roma on loan. He's been the symbol of Utd's decline, from 4th choice dodgy centre back to club captain while never improving.

But now moving to a better team.

From the Telegraph's Football Nerd (no I don't know either): 

 

Jose Mourinho insisted throughout his time as Manchester United manager that the quickest, easiest and most effective solution to their defensive problems was to spend big on an established centre-back. After half a season of trying to change things with the same group of players, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave up over the summer and convinced the club's hierarchy to splash out to the tune of £85m on Harry Maguire.

Following the 4-0 thrashing of Chelsea on the opening weekend of the season, conclusions were being jumped to about Maguire leading United into a new dawn. He had brought calm, assurance and leadership to an otherwise lost defence in that win, but since then it has been very much back to the United of old.

Indeed, the honeymoon period that Solskjaer initially enjoyed is now long forgotten, and United's defensive record remains a particular concern.
Over the 15 games since the goalless draw with Liverpool on 24 Feburary, United have kept just the one, solitary clean sheet - that coming against Chelsea at the start of this season. That leaves 14 other games in which they have conceded at least once - and in half of those at least two goals have been shipped.

 

Harry Maguire has not solved Man Utd's problems

 

Familiar defensive frailties were exposed by Crystal Palace last week as United fell to a desperately disappointing home defeat. United had 22 shots and scored once. Palace had just 29 per cent possession, managed just five shots all game and scored twice.

Of the 17 Premier League teams that were in the top flight last season and still are this, only struggling Watford have kept fewer clean sheets over the past 15 rounds of matches. Incredibly, United have the same number of Premier League clean sheets since February as newly-promoted teams Aston Villa and Sheffield United.

So what hope for United going forwards? Maguire may well steady the ship eventually, but they face a tough game in Saturday's lunchtime kick-off against a Southampton side who have scored in each of their last 15 home Premier League games.

United's poor recent record suggests there is something more fundamentally wrong than the oversimple assumption a sizeable force like Maguire could plug the gap. To realise their top four ambitions, Solskjaer needs to make significant improvements - and fast.

Maguire is steadying no ship. Klopp was on the money with regards to his remarks on "defending as a team". United's midfield is completely vaporous - compare the endlessly tireless Wijnaldum/Henderson/Fabinho variously guarding our back 4. Mourinho as we all know devolved into little more than a Pulis type character stylistically: ironically in their nasal cries for a more attacking "united way" their fans just succeeded in revealing the pink flabby underbelly Mourinho established through his transfer policy.

 

Thank God they didn't hire Pochettino. Solskjaer is a grade a baby-faced moron and whoever comes next will have exactly the same way problems he inherited, amplified.

Fuck them. 20 fucking years of their arrogant gurning grids, fergie fucking time, we're man utd and we do what we want, another false dawn for liverpool etc fucking etc. Times up, the devils come to collect on whatever deal these cunts made.

 

Nothing would make me happier than to see them go bust and get fucked off out of football altogether.

If you have a couple of minutes the replies to this tweet are great, from despair to delusional

Lampard moaning about Chelsea's transfer ban. The irony. They must have spent half a billion over the last few years. 

They've got around 50 players out on loan, the cheeky bastards!
