To be honest here, if you were in the board, will you even just give Jose the money?

Having the money is not the only concern you have on board.

"From what I read + hear it is difficult to believe we finished 2nd. You (media) are capable of making people who finished 2nd look like they got relegated + people who finished below us look like serial winners." -Jose

I Guess this season, Spurs is pretty short of finding. Most of their money went to build the new stadium.

Everton will definitely seem like a top 6 contender with their new signings, that is if the manager donít fade off like he did during his last 2 spells

On Diego Godin, his agent engaged in interesting tactics. Agent approached @ManUtd and said player was keen to join. United made an approach to @atletienglish but within hours, Godin signed new, improved deal worth 7.5million euros a year! Nice!

lol, they got 2 players we are linked with all in the final day.

I think it's obvious the board is no longer backing JM after his failure to win any trophies last season. His ranting during the pre season saying negative things about our players, youngsters and even fans does not help matters either.

Guess the board members must have drawn the line somewhere and see how he'll fare with the players HE BROUGHT IN and whip them into title winning contenders instead of whining even further that they are not good enough. If he can't work with setbacks and can only do it if everything is perfect to his whims and ways, then he's not fit to be our manager. That's the challenge of being a manager isn't it? To turn out good results when times are tough. The only one making things difficult is himself and his negative attitude and approach to the challenges ahead. Now he's giving the vibes that he's admitting defeat even before the season starts. Not getting the 2 players he wanted is not the end of the season. He still have a good team to work with.
Personally, I don't think Jose is interested in any of the central defenders speculated by the medias namely Mina, Maguire, Aldreweireld or even Kurt Zouma. If he is keen, apart from Mcguire and Alderweireld who are priced out of reach, the other two should be in the pocket.

It is clear in United that although ED looks after the commercial part in the process of the purchase, the choice of the player requires the nod from the manager.

From what I view, Jose is eyeing the big one in term of Bale or Willian. Apart from the unwillingness from the clubs that are not prepared to release the players, these players are priced excessively - far beyond their market value.
Next, to get in these players would results in the further side-lining of Martial - a player that United refuse to let go off and the fringing of Marcus Rashford who would have lesser games to play.

ED is not into the footballing matters and in this case, he must have been advised by somebody within the United's footballing hierrachy. Bale - unless we pay stupid monies to RM for them to pick up Mbappe, RM is not selling Bale, that left us with Willian and Chelsea wants big monies - not unless Jose is willing to chip in and go help with the deal with Roman. Anyway, Roman cannot sell anyway cheaper than the price that they had turned down Barcelona even if he were to want to be nice to Jose.

So at the end of the day, unless it is the players targeted by Jose, ED is buying nobody and hawkish fans would pin the blame on ED.

Looking at the Premier League top teams - none of the top 6 teams had any top attacking players roped in. This is a season whereby top attacking upfield players availability is next to none.

So, if none are available and none of the top clubs manage to get hold any top prominent attacking upfield players as we do, why should Jose or ourselves be complaining.

We have top quality players in Martial, Rashford, Lakaku, Alexis, and Pogba to support as attacking mid to make good.

Next we have the additions of Fred and Andreas Perierra to our midfield line-up of Pogba, Mata, Felliani, Hererra, Matic, and Jessie Lingard.

We may say that we only had 4 front line players. Well, it is rarely the case when Jose fielded both Martial and Rashford in the same team. So, with the prsence of Jessie Lingard or Mata on the wing, either Martial or Rashford had to be on the bench. So, ED must have been advised that why pay stupid big monies on Willian or Bale and allow Jose to further trash Martial and causing further unrest and further diminish Rashford by letting him having lesser games.

For the defense, we have 12 players in term of:

Antonio Valencia, Smalling, Jones, Lindelof, Bailly, Shaw, Marcus Rojo, Ashley Young, Matteo Darmain, Tuanzebe, Diogo Dalot such that even Tuanzebe and Fosu Mensah had to be loaned out.

So, unless Jose is willing to offload any of these 12 defenders, we can't be getting more defenders in and having most of them sit on the bench or up at the director's box collecting huge wages.

Jose can have his whims and fancies but the club must be able to run its business and not waste monies unnecessarily - keeping a huge squad with huge payroll and not playing majority of them and causing huge unrest amongst the good potentialled players.

So, we have a good squad of 4 goalkeepers, 10 defenders, 8 midfielders and 4 front-line players which are not world class but good enough for Jose to make good - so why the complain when we have a first team of 26 good players and with a handful of potential youngsters knocking at the door and not having a chance to have a game - the likes of Angel Gomes, Talith Chong.

I think it is still tough on them as they had not had a replacement for Lakaku. They lack striking power. Their only potential striker now is Syfi Sigurdsson and their new addition of Richarlisson.

It appears that the only available striker on the market this season on the last day is Ings.
