The United PR machine has been in full force since the last game. Canít go on any sports related site without some positive fluff piece.

Also, didnít realise super £350k a week Rashford had only scored 1 in his last 9. It doesnít surprise me, just didnít realise.

Itís good to know that their extensive recruitment team did a deep dive to come up with exactly the same players that youíd buy if your only interaction with football was watching MOTD and Soccer Saturday.

United have been overhauling their recruitment department and process, trying to play catch-up with more sophisticated operations at Liverpool and Manchester City. The recruitment of Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace for £50 million was an extensive process, with United looking at hundreds of right backs around the world, taking input from their 32 scouts in more than 30 countries, with data on each player being analysed by 15 people.

Sounds like they discovered Moyes' iPad room!

Quote
The England Under-21 international was particularly liked from the start by Solskjaer because of his ďrecoveryĒ strengths, getting back into position when the opposition turned the ball over, guarding against counterattacks.

The hell? The most important thing in Ole's mind is what happens when they lose the ball? Such a winning mentality.

Comedy stuff that the best they could find was the most obvious choice. Could be laziness, but I think not. I think it's nostalgia, which after all is the principle behind all changes since Mou left.

Wan-Bissaka could make a good CB I think, but he's never gonna be a top RB. Reminds me of Joe Gomez, although Gomez is better.

They did. But when were they getting 100 and 98 points a season?

Didn't say they were? I clearly said they werent as dominant. That doesn't change the fact that they won 2 league titles, and finished 2nd a couple of times in the period prior to Guardiola. So clearly they won't drop off the face of the earth with Guardiola leaving.

This is a scouting team that also pulled off the Fred transfer for 50m.

Iím not sure what the key attributes were that made Fred stand out from the hundreds of players the famed scouting team looked at but that is a story I would also like to hear.

In the 90's United were famous for tapping up youth players by putting their dad's on the payroll as scouts. I wonder if they are starting to reap the benefits of that particular Fergie masterstroke?

Neither should be managing the club. Ljinders is a good coach but he failed miserably in Holland as a manager. Whoever replaces Klopp needs to be proven at a higher level than either of those two, we can't afford to have another period of poor managerial choices and going in cycles of mistake after mistake.

Not really the thread for it, but a totally different situation. From all accounts the difficulties he had over there were because he was trying to get Dutch second division players playing high intensity football they were not capable of. Not an issue here.

I find it particularly funny that they specifically targeted Wan Bissaka for his recovery pace, but still spent a wodge on Harry Maguire, who has none.

I believe the average spend will go up £5 ahead and thatís being very conservative. So thatís £185k. Then you have a new 25k who will spend £10 a head thatís £250k. This is without the massively enhanced hospitality areas.

A chronic bout of canít-be-arseditis.  Apparently heís been suffering from it for a couple of years now, but itís really taken hold since the summer. 

In these severe cases the patient generally needs to move to a warmer climate and/or get given £150,000 a week extra in order to make a return to health.  A full recovery is rarely achieved, though they might have short term improvements for a month in the summer every two years,  but long term the prognosis is usually fairly bleak.
