  1. http://global.espn.com/football/club/manchester-united/360/blog/post/3832011/man-united-rebuild-must-follow-in-footsteps-of-hated-rivals-liverpool Them trying to replicate what we have done is great news if you ask me, because I don't think they will be able to do it successfully whilst the Glazers/Woodward are in charge. Their only hope would be to get a really top quality DoF and completely delegate all football decisions to him. And it comes with the added bonus of being patient with Solskjaer and giving him at least 3 years!

    Too much faffing about, but he does look quite good. Quick and accurate

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    Woodburn is only 6 months older than Brewster, has made 11 first team appearances for us, scoring 1 goal, and 10 caps for Wales, scoring 2 goals. Brewster was top scorer at the U17 World Cup, which was a great achievement, but Woodburn has achieved way more. That's not to put Brewster down, he's very talented, and maybe he'll end up the better player, but the evidence, and I'd say the eye test too, says Woodburn is better now.

    Haven't seen any interview with him, but if he's happy to stay I'm fine with that, I've said many times he's not actually that bad a keeper

    Yeah, Glatzel has had an extra year at the U18 level, Brewster may well have been banging in as many goals if he'd been with the U18s last season. Brewster also has that pace which Glatzel probably doesn't, which may give an advantage in terms of breaking into 1st team football at an earlier age. They'd probably compliment each other quite well in the same team Woodburn is the one though. David Silva type role for me

    In case of confusion, only 1 of those two keepers would be fine, I'm not saying we get both

    Youth Team/Cup

    I'm not usually one for hot-takes, but here's one, Glatzel is potentially better than Brewster... I'm not fully on this yet, but I have been so impressed by Glatzel and looking forward to see how he does with the U23s.

    I've liked what I've seen of Larouci. Only recently started playing a LB too I think.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    Woolster's wishlist Lozano - from what I have seen of him, which isn't loads I must admit, Lozano would be a perfect fit for the way we play, goals, pressing, workrate, determination etc. Back-up keeper - I think that Adrian at West Ham and McCarthy at Southampton are 2 good, Premier League standard keepers who are sat on the bench at their clubs. They may want to leave to play games, but I'm sure they'd rather be on our bench than at their current clubs Back-up left back - No fucking idea. I'd go for a seasoned pro who could perhaps also cover at right back, like a full back version of Klavan. Wildcard - This time last year I was touting Son who was down to the last year of his contract. Well this year, Eriksen is down to the last year, and as yet doesn't look like extending. Would he cost a shit load? Yes. Is it likely to happen? No. But fuck it, its a wishlist.

    Brewtser is no where near Rashford's level right now. Brewster probably isn't even better than Ben Woodburn right now.

    Chelsea (H) Premier League 14/04/19

    I watched on delay and just saw him. Told the kids and they asked how I know him, decided to tell them from going to the match rather than telling them I make friends on the internet...

    FSG are not shit

    Not sure of the amount of times I've said to people who try to add up net transfer spending to show that we haven't spent much that they are not including costs such as agent fees which can be significant, so I'm going to try and pre-empt that with the figures published for 1st Feb 2019 to 31st Jan 2019, showing that we spent £44m, £17m more than the next highest team. Reckon a big chunk of that is Coutinho https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-6885975/Liverpool-paid-staggering-44million-agents-year.html
