Fair call tekkers. Will be interesting to see what happens to him in jan. I thought he went pretty well against us, and was surprised at his skill to create that opportunity for periera that he blasted into the side netting. Didnt know he had that in him.
Hes getting on now, if you can get coin for him you probably should, but if pogba doesnt come back into the side and you cant sign someone else then you might need him.

Lots of momentum behind Bruno Fernandes deal this morning.

...standby for City/Liverpool bid to derail the whole thing.

We'll still need another midfielder. Hopefully there's also some truth behind van de Beek rumours.

Both Fernandes and de Beek are the sort of player we need. Fingers crossed

Actually seems like it might happen this time. Last window, it seemed like mostly rumours you hear when trying to start a bidding war. 

Now it seems like the more money has been made available for him, given the lack of options at CM and CAM. Hasnt played as a #8 often but lets see. 

But from a business sense it shows how poor United have been with this transfer, as since last window he has signed a new contract (which either meant more wages and/or higher release clause). 

Good performance against a lower table team today, cant take that for granted either.

It's the hope that kills you.

Hopefully Spurs wrap this Gedson Fernandes deal up to reduce the likelihood of them moving for Bruno Fernandes. Seems they were our biggest rival for him in the Summer.

After watching the game again, its again noted how the balance of Fred, Matic and Mata worked well. Clearly Norwich didnt put them under much pressure but they kept things tight in the middle. Fred played more on the right of the two, which isnt his natural side, but it worked well. As previously said, I would keep Matic around for another season or so until McTominay grows a bit more. When Andreas is  playing in attacking areas, things look a lot better

I'll take it.

Brandon Williams is going to be our left back for a long, long time and I'm loving it. We have one of the best backup keepers in Romero and it was nice to see Mata and Matic looking influential. Hope Rashford is ok, but roll on Watford in the next round.

Looks like Fernandes is another instance of selling clubs f**king us around. Agreement got close before they increased what the want and United holding firm. When Sporting accepted Spurs’s $45m+ in the summer (Fernandes said no) but Sporting wants $80m now? Better to wait and get Maddison / Grealish later. 

Rashford seems out of the game tomorrow. Seemed like our only chance was with him there, but maybe the rest put in the effort to make up for the loss of him.

Could have been worse, could have been better. you would expect Martial to find that bottom corner more often than not but times like that have happened more frequently than they should. 

United are just so bad from set pieces (particularly against the top teams) and it is so frustrating. Trying to beat teams with the sort of blunt instrument we have when you are missing Pogba, McTominay and now Rashford is pretty tough. 

Its going to be a tough season but with the squad we have, we are about par.

Can I just say that Pawson was absolutely horrific. Probably the worst all round performance I've seen in a long time.

What a shame Pereira or Martial couldn't sneak one in. Not having Rashford is extremely frustrating. Looks like he'll be out for 2-3 months.

Desperately need midfielders.

On Bruno - Sporting are at the point where they barely have the capital to operate. They need to sell and they need the money. Yet here we are with a selling club trying to absolutely balls us. I hope we can hold out but I really hope we can sign the guy.

If we can't hold out against someone almost bankrupt we'll never be able to sign someone at a reasonable price ever again.

We aren't signing anyone mate - maybe a loan, but even that's a stretch.

That’s article basically says “United said Sporting we’re lying but sporting aren’t lying because Sporting said so”

I don’t think we’re haggling some bargain for some world class player. If we were other clubs would be lining up to get in on the action. United’s valuation doesn’t seem unreasonable, we just need to work on our unsettling player skills.

I know there is a lot of criticism and negativity but there are some positives, Brandon Williams being one of them.  He will have bad games as he builds experience but I hope you are right and he becomes our left back for a long time.
