Do teams park the bus against Utd?!  Why the fuck would any team do that?
allows their players more time to chuckle, I imagine.

They should really wait maybe two years before they start the piss taking considering the purchases they're going to have to make and overpay on to move up the table

They moved up the table pretty swiftly after their January signings.  3rd behind us and city for points won I believe.

Ronaldo loves the club. He won't leave them (again).

Or. United could buy him back from Chelsea 2 years later for £89m.

£81m for the toon defence.  That's £1m for every person killed in the mass one-day Saudi execution in March...

They have this stupid belief that they are big enough not to fall further and all it takes is 1 or 2 big name players and everything will be fine. They should have tried to get whoever was the technical or sporting director at Brighton and sacrificed two years to build but instead they are repeating the same mistakes over and over again. long may it continue.

Whether or not Frenkie de Jong wants to be there, or is worth the big fee and enormous wages, or will make Man Utd good again, he's certainly a hell of a lot better than every other midfielder at their club.

But when he's surrounded by shite will he actually make that much difference?

He's 25 and being forced out of a club he wants be at. He'll be spending his prime at a club he seems to be very reluctant to join. Feel sorry for him in some respects. If his agent was smart he'd look to insert a contractual out by seasons two or three in the event Man Utd are still a mess.

I think that's a little unfair, he could quite possibly drag them up as far as 6th if he joined them.

I hope they get some big name in on 500k a week, or spew 100 mill on someone before we go there, or the fans will cause murder again.

I can't believe he's taking so long to decide.

He should be snapping Brentford's hand off.

Footballing wise, yes he should. But United is probably willing to pay him 10 times more, so he has to decide what's most important at this stage of his career.

That's fair enough. We don't know much about you - but I think its prima facie obvious that people should care about obscene evil interfering with the sport we love, and indeed by caring the evil itself enters our sphere of influence. Therefore, it falls on you to justify why you think that its appropriate not to care?

If you are concerned that we "have no idea about anything" let me know and I will be happy to give you my qualifications to care about human rights abuses.

The de Jong deal is nuts.
He's a quality player no question but how can anyone look at that squad and first team and decide that half your summer window budget (more?) should be spent on a top class attacking midfielder who can play CM but is a bit of a turnstile defensively ?

They should be better under a proper coach next season but there's a world in which its even more of a shit show
They've got this massive problem that I'm not sure will get addressed which is having a keeper that won't leave his line, ever, and a main centre back that wants to play on his 18 yard line then 2 6s who can't effectively progress the ball - its a squad to sit relatively deep and play on the counter, which Ten Haag definitely doesnt want to do
They need about 5 young, hungry players with window and to accept its a project... but obv thats not happening

Only way it makes any sense is if they are planning on spending a lot of money this window (and also cannot progress more than one target at a time)
