Good evening ladies and gentlemen - hope you're all strapped in (and not wearing a strap on, which is different) for this new season - if we've bought some players we should go greeeeeeaaat. if not, maybe not so.
Have a splendid trip with us this season (possibly) and #UpTheFuckingReds
Yes, you can see what he's laying down. The passing routines have all changed and the ability to press and the ability to get back to front a lot quicker is getting there - for the first 15/20 minutes, then it evaporates, which is partly because it's all new to them but partly because some are simply not good enough to be first teamers at MU.
We need the promised midfield to start with and work from there.. Window is not shut yet.....
Oh it's not your first destination, no UCL puts most top players off straight away - but FDJ is / was deffo worth chasing down purely because of his circumstances, whether he gets here by window end I wouldn't like to call.
If the BREAKING news is correct and we've agreed a fee for Rabiot from Juventus then they've reached emergency parachute time - Rabiot is still better than anything we've got even with his age. A Rabiot / FDJ midfield would be light years ahead of anything you could dream of for where we are.
It may not be a complete disaster of a window yet.
Then FDJ and Rabiot have no ambition to challenge for UCL honours if I read that correctly. They are looking for a nice backwater club which will require only limited playdays to Domestic competitions. So it sounds like the good old Catch 22 is in play.
