So what do your team need in the transfer window?

I think citeh's priority is for a holding midfielder to take the load off and then replace Fernandinho

We also need a left back unless Mendy shakes off the injuries of the last 2 years

Other than that the squad is still the same that got 198 points in the last 2 years.

Yernited will be busy methinks needing a new GK, entire back four, couple of mf and a cf......

What about the rest?

A manager, a defence, a midfield and two or three forwards - I wish this was hyperbole... On a positive note, we may be ok for keepers.

What we need is for the owners to keep their word and go - or at least invest enough for the team to have a realistic chance at survival this year. The parachute payments have run out but they are due a payout from Maguire sell on fees and potentially selling Jarrod Bowen, our current team star. Rumours are that wages capped at £5k per week this year for the team, well below Championship average.

As a Yernited fan I don't consider it as a transfer window its more like a ransom demand if you are Yernited looking to sign players. Yes admittedly we have paid over the odds for several players who didn't work out or still working it out.

yeah I know agents are claiming citeh are interested in all sorts of players to try and drive up the prices yernited will pay but after the Fred and Sanchez blunders you can't blame them. Citeh are apparantly only after 2 players who I suspect are Rodri and Maguire

Moreno has left Liverpool so we're already winning this transfer window. I don't think we'll be splashing the cash this time though as I don't think there's not many players that we can get that would strengthen the first team so we're probably looking for more squad players. I'd love De Ligt purely because good defenders are so few and far between that if a rival gets him they'll certainly be stronger, that and Gomez has had a couple of lengthy injuries already in his career, if he keeps it up we'll have to sell him to West Ham.

I can't blame a club who are approached to sell a player asking for a fair amount of money but some clubs are taking the piss. One club agrees to sell us a 21 yr old winger for 15 million plus an additional 3 million in add ons. Another club turns down a 40 million offer for one of their 21 yr old players allegedly wanting another 20 million. Oh well Ed better get the gimps to open their wallets more than they want to or perhaps this alleged Saudi Prince will up his offer to buy the club for 4 billion. We can then have a battle of the Saudi Royal family and the Abu Dhabi Royal Family.

Well they have been talking about getting a Director Of Football for quite some time now. From all accounts Ed knows how to sweet talk sponsors but his transfer ability has been severely questioned by fans. Who is actually in charge at Utd? The current board have been slated for allowing the club to go from a position of winning multiple PL titles to a club that is no longer feared and deserves being laughed at. Still its only bloody football.

I don't think Ed is on BE much these days :p

If you want someone who seems to know their stuff, and bleeds Utd red, how about Cainess?.........

In fairness a perfectly formed, dainty but strong, well painted and cute garden gnome would be a more effective Chief Exec than Ewar Woowar.
