    Its good business via the academy either way. It's the left side that concerns me anyway. Lets hope we get some players back before we play the chavs.

    Absolutely. I think he's been there three or four years. Only 21yo now. Cant say i believe this necessarily because i'd have thought City's top priority would be cover/a replacement for Fernandinho. Although, why not just buy both!!!

    Numerous reports that City are to make a 50m bid for Frenkie De Jong. Think they'd need to up that. That Ajax academy really does turn out some talent. Its a talent conveyor belt!! Not saying de Jong in this case but generally speaking

    So you still don't understand, or is that a concession that you made a chump of yourself again? I rest my case. Either way, your little jibes about us not mentioning our sides average age was quite ridiculous and a spectacular misfire, one of your best actually. It also demonstrated a fundamental lack of understanding of squad/team developement.

    Don't know what the rest of you think but i reckon that with Foyth coming of age earlier than expected and our predominance of right sided center backs we might be seeing the end of Tob'y career at Spurs. Certainly him or Carter-Vickers anyway. What we learnt about Foyth from last week is two fold. One, he has the self belief and strength of character required at top level. Secondly it was a clear sign just how much belief Pochettino has in him. Although, i'm not sure we had anyone else!!!

    I'd have a ton on that!

    Maybe you would prefer the league but the CL is the pinnacle, the highest quality, biggest prize to which i believe your owners aspire to winning. They've done winning the league stuff, its the CL they want. And you'll win the league anyway, by ten points or more.

    I understand you wanting to play it down a bit but in terms of stand outs City are the stand out. United can beat Juve, Real Betis can put four past Barca and beat them, Real Madrid are much weaker than they were, Bayern no big shakes....Liverpool are arguably your biggest threat. i see City being the strongest side from top to bottom and in particular the midfield which is quite simply the best there is. They can cut through any side and they make life so much easier for the defense, and regards them, i really like the Stones/Laporte partnership. Put simply, City are the team to beat. Not how you'd want it but thats the way it is.

    Ah yes, stability, he needs more time. I think there will be a few managers rubbing their hands at the prospect of that job. The pigs ear Jose's made of the job has probably given the potential replacement more time and money. He's got some excellent players to work with and the necessary money for the incomings. And of course there will be an offload as Nev suggests. Its potentially not good for any of us if he's replaced but it seems somewhat inevitable given the stats and regression. They could end up thirty points behind City the way its going!!

    Forgot to add Nev; the board might also be saying we gave him 52m to buy Fred and he doesn't even play him. Regime change needed and a very attractive proposition for a manager with a solid foundation of top your player , a big transfer budget and what i think is probably a wealth of talent at Carrington being under utilized.

    I read some gruesome facts for Mourinho to absorb and this really forms the backbone to my opinion as to why Jose needs to go. He's spent more lavishly on players that United have spent in their history, but failed to plug so many gaps, improve certain key areas. The defense is shambolic, shipping more goals than any side in the league bar Burnley and the bottom three and you have a negative goal difference. The midfield he set up with at the Etihad told its own story. Zero creativity, so nothing to feed the forwards and a threes man trio to kick lumps out when necessary. Given the money they have allowed him to spend and seeing the results of that they don't seem to trust him with more so surely its time to part company and a new regime? Regards McGuire, he's ok, but not as technically gifted as say van vVD, and not the commanding center back thats going to shore up your defense. United should be going for the likes of De Light at Ajax, he's a massive talent.

    Agreed, and utilizing players out of their chosen position really shouldn't be an agenda for one of the biggest, wealthiest (in terms of rev) clubs in the world.

    Sorry, so let me get this right...........you've spent months baiting us about our debt, about how its out of control, how can we pay it back...... and now, we suddenly have the money to buy players of 40m+ and we are to cut out the sob stories!!!! So, please tell me Do we have 40m+ plus to spend on players or don't we? Are we completely saint, our money tied up or can we simply pull the odd 40m + out of our are every now and again? Its really one or the other and not both sides to suit your argument at a given time. You really can't be changing your tune weekly to suit your floundering arguments!! I hope you and your pals understand all that although i fear more confusion on the Chelsea/Arsenal fans part!!! And i trust you understand now about team development and how footballer grow up, same as normal people. I ask because i note you chose not to respond yet!! Don't blame you really, lol.......

    I make you 100% right on all that. I'd still throw in a new manager though. This situation doesn't need a "today" manager it needs one who builds, a two-year process in the making but a very sound nucleus for anyone to start with.
