one person give up. another will take over
but leaving in the middle of the game or even not turning up can affect how the sponsors think about United. can trigger reaction and pressure.
most of them are season ticket holders. this is 1 way to show displeasure at how the club is being run. sponsors might see this and also put pressure on woody. hopefully next season got less people buy season tickets.

AndreasP can still have the odd good game, but I've not seen one from JesseL for a long long time.

Barca desperate to sign Brazilians. Rejected 85m for richarlison and bidding 20m for out of contract Willian.
Why not a 2m bid for AP? We can bundle in legendary Lingardinho for free

Richarlison is not 85m.. That's more than LKK? His goal scoring record is nothing like LKK.

Against wolves, with Matic out, our midfield is going to be overrun again.. with smaller players like AP15 and Fred playing in the middle of the park.

Probably not signing him for the goals...

There are strikers who are the Lukakus who scores goals, and the Firminhos that links things up.

Unfortunately Utd has a Martial.

Bruno Fernandes is Man Utd’s ready-made Pogba replacement… and he will even do what he is told

IT WAS Paul Pogba’s failure to follow instructions that drove Jose Mourinho to distraction.

And it is Bruno Fernandes’ willingness to follow them which finally made Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer go for the Portugal midfielder.

To get a player who is willing to put himself before the team.

Fernandes prefers the attacking playmaker role, what United have been lacking, but he can take up any position across the midfield.

What made Wayne Rooney so great for United, apart from his goals, was his ability to adapt to any role — even playing as a second right-back to nullify Barcelona in the goalless first leg of their 2008 Champions League semi-final.

That was the sort of person Sir Alex Ferguson wanted.

He would never buy anyone on ability or name alone.

Fergie would investigate a player’s character just as much as ability before making a decision.

He had to be the right person to fit into the group.

There has not been enough of that kind of analysis since the great man’s retirement.

Do you think he would have countenanced Bastian Schweinsteiger travelling the world watching his partner play tennis while he recovered from injury?

Or allowed Paul Pogba to shoot hoops in Miami while coming back from an ankle injury?

Can you imagine him coming to the sidelines to give instructions to one team member, only to watch that player flagrantly ignore them?

That is exactly what happened two years ago today with Mourinho and Pogba in a game against Spurs at Wembley.

Mourinho called him over to tell him what to do — and Pogba didn’t do it. Mourinho subbed him in the 63rd minute and the pair’s relationship never recovered.

Pogba thought he knew better and wanted to play his own game.

Look also at Alexis Sanchez, who Solskjaer unbelievably suggested could return to United in the summer after a season on loan at Inter Milan.

He would not have lasted a month under Sir Alex, as he moaned and groaned behind the scenes and seemed to blame everyone else but himself as things went wonky.

So it has been interesting to see Solskjaer’s signings since he has had a chance to shape his team, all of whom have had the right impact on the club.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka immediately has become a crowd favourite for his rampaging performances from right full-back.
Centre-back Harry Maguire’s huge influence on the dressing room has earned him the captain’s armband just six months after signing.

Winger Dan James has something which has drawn comparisons with his Welsh boss and United’s most decorated player, Ryan Giggs.

They all look like they want to enjoy their very best days at Old Trafford.

United were unsure about a deal for Fernandes in the summer — but believe his improvement over the last six months has been marked, as a player and a man.

Solskjaer said: “We have been tracking Bruno for many months and everyone here has been tremendously impressed with all his attributes and what he will bring to this team.

“Most importantly he is a terrific human being with a great personality — and his leadership qualities are clear for all to see.

“Bruno’s goals and assist stats speak for themselves, he will be a fantastic addition to our team and will help us push on in the second part of the season.

“The winter break is coming at a perfect time for us to integrate Bruno into the squad and for him to get to know his team-mates.”

Those stats Solskjaer refers to are quite something.

From the start of 2017-18, no player in the Primeira Liga can better Fernandes’ goal involvement of 67.

He is the captain when he was playing for Sporting. In the summer Man Utd will need to sign that Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish.

wasn't it not too long ago they reported that United thinks he loses possession too much so don't want to buy Bruno?

Wait for himself or Man Utd.com to present him.

Got 7, 11, 12, 16, 19 also available.

First time as a Man Utd fan see so many front 20 numbers empty.... :(

But I'm guessing 7 or 11 might be reserved for Sancho... (and also dun forget Alexis coming back)... 16 for McT next season?


I think 18 is perfect for Bruno.... Scholesy MK II

Article is from The Sun aka Singapore's Stomp quality and Ed's mouthpiece.

If Bruno is bought to play the holding 2 and then AP15/Lingardinho play CAM, really joke. :s22::s22:
