Hope Di Maria will follow his teamate. Looks pretty good ftm but bring on a DM. We need that. I really hope LVG isn't relying on Carrick considering his age.

I hope we can sign someone during this transfer window and not in January.

Farewell to you Luís Carlos Almeida da Cunha :)
scholes really hit the nail and summed up what ive been thinking about united...

maybe if i were scholes you guys would have reacted to me differently, or maybe if i were the one writing the letter you would all disagree on me...
Scholes is just stating what everyone has been thinking though.

I think the difference between him making the comments and anyone else is that his comments will make it on multiple websites and might have a small impact on United.
Makes me feel depressed when I watch the Spanish supercup, both Real and Atletico's midfield is so organised, they have so much pace, also they have beautiful first touch, one-two, little triangles and they turn from defending to attacking in seconds, few touches and they're ready to shoot. Ours? Takes ages to send the ball to midfield, a little threat and the midfields send it backwards and sideways. And we're still stuck with the crossing game. As we compared our physicality against ManCity and other PL clubs, we really need the tiki-taka football from pre-season and bring it to EPL games immediately. Most PL teams defenders are vulnerable to fast passing game and usually PL teams have lower stamina comparing to our players.

This is the text of Scholes article if u guys are interested
http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/premier-league/paul-scholes-manchester-united-need-five-experienced-players-who-can-turn-round-a-desperate-situation-9681747.html

The article.
Scholesy is spot on. Glad he's speaking up. Hopefully it'll have some sort of impact on the board.
Di Maria and Khedira are the only possible options in the 5 names he mentioned.

Both would have a positive impact right away.
Some people think it's arrogant of Scholes to start speaking his own mind, but I like it in my opinion.

He sheds some light on things and speaks the truth. Maybe even wake up some folk or a bunch in the process.
I was hoping that we'd go for Varane especially seeing as his playing time is limited.

I can't decide whether it makes me happy or sad that Kroos and Cesc were in the mix at some point in time.

Also glad that Scholes is finally piping up but it feels like he's got a lot of unsettled business at times.
Great signing Rojo, Now get yourself a Beast DM.

Thanks mate. I don't think we're going big for a DM this window because LVG wants to get Kevin Strootman in the January window. I think the likely targets are De jong and Alex Song (hopefully just a season loan)
Found our way to the top of the league! #wrongtable #injurytropy

whats the condition of rvp?
Not again. This is like the third season in a row we are the worst team with injuries.

Lol So much for that new physio center United bought last year
+1
not quite sure but I think he would be very close to being match fit by now
Kid asks Carragher if he ever got bitten by Luis Suarez LMAO

do you think rojo will be our last signing this summer or should we expect any more to come?

i personally think LVG really wants to bring another world class mid but he's constrained with financial budgets so at the end we will either sign a mediocre player or not sign at all
All your comments always end in a pessimistic way lol.

We should be expecting more. I think Woodward is trying his best here.

Not sure on the board though, they should be doing everything they can to help make deals happen, because I'm sure the manager isn't putting up with what he has. Also we saw some dead weight gone, there might be a one or two more that gets shipped away. We might see some swap deals like we did with Rojo.
Maybe its my optimistic naivety but I think there's at least one more.
A) its pretty clear we need reinforcements and answers to our midfield and defence.
B) I think LVG still wants to go to 433.
C) I can't think of any other reason for United to have to make installments on Rojo's deal than for us to have monies available for a big transfer or other tranafers. With Woody spouting publicly of our war chest, why wouldn't we just drop 16m (or was it 20m)?
D) and finally, just to prove you wrong j/k :P
I got a feeling it gonna be Di Maria and not a CM which we need lol
We need a winger as well though lol. Di Maria and Januzaj tearing up both wings would be nice. :)
@toruhyuga

that's true

i will only get optimistic when i see concrete actions...

i was very optimistic after the appointment of LVG and the wonderful preseason, then came the row of injuries, then first lost against swansea which showed our fragile defense, then all the rumors linking us with top players yet none materialized... transfer window is closing soon yet woodie doesnt seem to want to spend any more cash... then i witnessed just how great real madrid, city, bayern and chelsea were, which they then reminded me of the old man utd, how we once was feared as the world's greatest club...

i was quiet when united signed moyes, then after observing a few of his matches, how he handled the backroom staffs and players, i turned against him, i didnt see any positive signs yet we kept him too long until the damage was beyond reparable during the season... i was doubtful when we signed fellaini at the last minute, thinking how foolish our club was... then came in another transfer window this season which we repeated the same mistake...

i dont know, i have been a life long supporter of man utd and been to their matches a few times despite the distance, i am one of their shareholders... but what im seeing with the management is they are taking this club down... i want to be more aggressive because thats what we should be if we want to compete with the greatest...

i used to have faith on the club, believing everything will be okay, but with the stepping down of Gill and sir Alex, all we are left in the handling of the club are the glazers and woodward who are not more interested than making money for themselves... for this, it's hard to have faith, you need to see concrete actions from them to start believing again, which so far i have seen very very very little...
@jiffymanutd

"stick to the club"

oh until my blood no longer red i will always stay red

some glory hunters wouldnt even care to complain and just jump ship all of sudden

to have faith, you need to see one or two actions first... it's like, how can you have faith that the north koreans will suddenly turn democratic? something like that...
@theatre

I know we were at odds around Blackett the other day and then you had a dig at me by lumping me in with the unconditional Moyes backers.

But I just want to say this: that being optimistic requires a certain amount of faith. It's seeing the cup as half full when there's only half a cup of water - not when there's more than half a cup of water.

That said, your points are very vaild and no doubt, that's why there's been so much doom and gloom over the last year amongst us.

So yes, there's little reason to have faith in the suits at the top of the money-grabbing food chain. But stick to the club because of its history, traditions and spirit of attack-minded/attractive football. Obviously we're still in the transition from SAF's era but we can definitely get back to the old United we know. The pieces are slowly coming together this window and that's why I think LVG's not done. Woody's just gotta get his a$$ in gear.
I don't know if this has been posted here before, but I recommend everyone to read this article. Especially those who are hooked on the transfer rumours.

Most of them are completely made up and yet get circulated around on Twitter, Facebook and now through actual websites like crazy.

ScoutNation uploaded a vid of our new boy from his Argentina games.

Certainly loving his physicality and ability to power forward from deep. Really excited to see what he can bring to our backline :)

with shaw and rojo, that left half of our defense is going to be a force over time as thy get an understanding. finally, we have some pace and athleticism. the guys is physically gifted, reminds me of sergio ramos in that he doesnt necessarily have the class and defensive intelligence of rio type player but he's such an athlete that he can be aggressive, win most duels, and even if he loses a duel he has the recovery speed to snuff out another chance.
I hope he is not like Ramos in a cards happy way
@reddevil, yes he is a Ramos type player.His disciplinary records aren't that good.
