    Yea, he fat. No change there then.

    Ferguson retiring will be a blow no doubt. However, all of the other teams will step back as well. As I posted above, each of the other contenders has scoring issues. United are still the best squad in the PL and that does not change because of Moyes. The talent is there.

    As for needing a world class CM … of course every team could use one. I think United can build them instead of buying them. It requires a little patience and a bit more faith. But a “made” world class player is 10 times more gratifying then a Rent Boy. Look at Rafael vs Ashley Cole. One is a legend in the making. The other is referred to as “Cashley.”

    Zigoo, look mate your radical pessimism ain’t helpful at all.first you say our board is bad in negotiation”without giving us tangible evidences”then you seriously undermine our young crop of young players, are you about to do something about it?as far as am concerned your point of views are irrational, its as if you are talking about Sunderland or stoke city not Manchester united….let me tell you mate you are missing something very crucial beyond the scene, you are seriously ignorant of what is happening behind the curtain and obviously you are not aware of the architect and philosophy of this might be a passionate or did hard united fan but you are lacking the expectations and vision to make a proper reading of what is really going on…

    Looks like Thiago’s not coming after all.

    Like I said earlier, it’s a straightforward situation….as long as we bid the buyout amount, Thiago’s free to leave, unless he doesn’t want to move and were only using us as leverage to get a better deal at barca.

    I think we should start looking at other possible targets!!

  5. The One says:

    As for fat boy rooney, I think we should sell him abroad.

    Samuel @ 16:28: ““Bookies” and reality do not mix together”

    I beg to differ – if a bookie gets it wrong on a consistent basis then he’s in the dole queue.

    Zigoo. Will you fucking relax you’re doing my swede in. How the FUCK do you know what’s happening with Thiago and always blaming the club? There are dozens of reasons why a deal may not be going through. It isn’t fucking PlayStation pal where you just sign some cunt up. Is he HUNDRED per cent certain he wants to even leave Barca? You’re incessant moaning is childlike and you’re slagging of the club and moyes is winding me up. Cunts like Moura and Hazard are little fucking Rentboys but I’m sure you’d be happy to see cunts like this at United. Not me.

  8. King Eric says:

    Zigoo. You’re a fucking clown. Pogba. Morrison? Turned out to be cunts but as expected you’d be happy to see them still at United. We aren’t some fucking two bob shit club. Not sure you even understand the United way.

    Why the fuck are loads saying we won’t buy? Course we will. Patience.

  9. King Eric says:

    Dan young. As I say zigoo is a moron. Bringing up that shit cunt Pique. United produce more players than any other side and have had a homegrown player I’m the side for fuck knows how many decades. He knows fuck all. Fucking Rossi. Liked the kid but didn’t even pull trees up at Newcastle. Seems zigoo knows much more than Fergie. You couldn’t make it up.

    Sara. I’d quit while you’re ahead love. You’ve been found out to be a fraud.

    moyes made it very clear to expect transfers to happen later in the summer. cant be more clear that how he was during the press conference. he only started the job 9 days ago, and already had to deal with rooney, the presser, and now a tour and pre-season game at the weekend. transfers will get done but we wont rush anything through.
