Sounds like Lukaku to Inter is done
Good. He will not be missed.
There'll be a big reduction in takings at local kebab and fried chicken joints.
It’s ok I’ve not moved.

Bet the first thing he scores in Italy is delivered by Just Eat.

Last day of the transfer window and do we think anymore will come in? Very worried about our midfield and lack of options.

I don't think anyone else will come in although I agree, we're desperate for a midfielder alongside Pogba.

Maybe Ole thinks McTominay is the solution.

McT is good in a defensive mid role and is already better at it than Matic. We need a creative midfielder (Bruno) alongside Pogba to take the weight off his shoulders and free him up a bit!

Shame Ander left but don't forget we have James in midfield.

James is a winger not a centre mid though.

McTominay is the pivot that the team should be built round. Not because he is the best player, but he is a lad who can play, is hungry, shows the capacity to improve and will be there for as long as he is wanted

He reminds me of a young Henderson when he was at Sunderland. Not a great player as such, but a good worker. Scored some good goals for us at U21 level (and was also captain I believe).

Agree with that. You can tell he loves the club and always puts in a shift. He will play alongside Pogba, but its the other options im not impressed with. Fred hasn't done much since he signed, and Matic looks to have got old very quickly and Pereria is not a holding midfielder.

Im hoping Fred makes a massive improvement this season. We must have seen something in him to sign the player, but its taken him a while to get used to the prem.

A disappointing transfer window unless something dramatic happens. No replacement for Herrera and no striker. Quite poor, standing back.

They ended the pursuit of Mandzukic who they were never really in for anyway.

Good God man stop moaning. Some clubs got fk all. We got two world class defenders and a fresh young talent. We also retained one of the world's best keepers, and probably kept pogba for a year or so.
If you honestly thought Utd would buy their way back to the top in one window Ord you are sadly mistaken. Sit in hold tight and buckle up because this is a season or two yet. Please don't be one of those people calling for OGS by October because it's not top of the league or similar.

Strikers we've got Rashford, Martial, Greenwood and at a push Sanchez (his last chance season) so I'm not to concerned up top. It's midfield where we're lacking. Bruno Fernandes has said he wants to come to the prem and we need a player in his position, it's a no brainer imo.

Don't forget we've also got Chong and Gomes who will feature more this season and are forward players. Gomes is going to be top top class.

Honestly people can't see the wood for the trees. In previous years we'd be panic buying someone/anyone today.
Just sit back and chill Ord . This is in for the long haul. We've got some exciting players but the team need to find a style from a solid base which we've now bought.
Expect plenty of low scoring wins or draws this year lol

Our first proper RB in years
Decent CB to partner Lindelof

We know midfield is an issue, but I'm glad we haven't had our pants pulled down paying Dybala or Eriksen 300k a week if they aren't that interested

Up top I think we'll be ok, just losing Lukaku's trampoline esque first touch should mean more attacks at least make it to the box

I still hold out hope for Fred and think this will be Scotts breakthrough season

James, Greenwood and Gomes should all see some decent time and Chong, Garner and Pereria may step up as well.

I'm excited
