    Weirdly, I'm okay with the recruiting this season and the signings at youth level.

    It's just years and years of deadwood i.e. Young and signing old players that become deadwood i.e. Matic. A lot of poor coaching and years of bad strategy.

    Yes but going full youth will affect your league position in future and the utd fanbase will have to be patient for like 2-3 seasons to get things together i think utd need intelligent signings like James not high profile very expensive once

    It's Southgate syndrome. Shouldn't be anywhere near the level they are at but fans are buying into mediocrity because the manager uses youth to cover their flaws and have some kind of sentimental attachment.

    Yeah transfer strategy wasn’t too bad this year tbf, although I said at the time that selling Lukaku with no immediate replacement was very poor.

    There’s just no energy to the play at all, when I see Pogba he’s playing so deep even though he carved up Chelsea when he was higher up the pitch.

    I don’t think top 4 was unattainable this year for you if you had a competent manager.

    Manchester United 2 Arsenal 0 - FA Cup quarter-final, March 2011

    LikUnited starting XI: Van der Sar; Brown, Smalling, Vidic, Evra; Rafael, O'Shea, Gibson, Fabio; Rooney, Hernandez.

    Manchester United 3 Arsenal 2 - Premier League, February 2016
    United starting XI: De Gea; Varela, Carrick, Blind, Rojo; Schneiderlin, Herrera; Lingard, Mata, Depay; Rashford.

    It's what we've done for years, except we didn't actually lose this time.

    GDeep™ Wrong, but rarely

    That 2011 team is quality. That 2016 team is much much better than what they currently have too

    You can draw at OT, but we gave them way too much respect. **** me AZ were all over them and AZ are terrible.

    That's what hurts me the most. Playing 3 defensive midfielders instead of trying to grab them by the balls.

    Someone set up a “Could we get relegated?” thread on RedCafe :rofl:

    Posters arguing about whether they can get 50 points together to finish top half.

    Watching them right now makes me so glad that money grubbing Baldie Gazidis decided to f*ck off.

    Harry Maguire and Daniel James were signings not to be criticised. Won't be surprised to see United fans looking for another RB beyond AWB before the end of the season though.

    How bad is their midfield? Honestly, even Xhaka would walk into their team. Mata has been useless since 2013, Matic retired at 28, Fred is like Jorginho for his first 6 months at chelsea and McTominay and Perreira wouldn't look out of place in Watfords midfield. Pogba is their only good midfielder and he's so inconsistent for them.
