Manchester United 19/20: You can't win anything with kids (revisited)

Mmmmm Beer!
I actually stayed up to watch the end of the match, the lack of tactics was amazing, no one had any idea of who was giving ideas or what they were meant to be doing.

United fans are planning a mass walk-out at Old Trafford in protest against the Glazers. Those behind the move are calling on all United fans to walk out of the stadium in the 58th minute against Wolves on February 1st [Mirror]
:hmm:

Also a petition on the go:

According to major Spanish sources, Barcelona are in advanced talks with Sporting CP to sign Bruno Fernandes, then loan to Valencia.

Alexis (Sanchez) will come back in the summer and will prove us all wrong

Portuguese press saying Fernandes to Utd pretty much done ( although they have said this for the past week) 55m on the table , 10 in achievable bonuses and a further 15 in somewhat harder bonuses . So 65m euros .
Personally can't see the Barcelona story making a lot of sense unless a loan deal to Seville means they get first dibs on a player in the Seville team but it's an expensive round the houses route to do that.

According to Sky

Sky Sports News has obtained details of the two add-on clauses which United have offered Sporting to help close the deal.

As well as the Euros 55m fee:

  • Sporting would receive a further Euros 10m from United if Fernandes achieves what are considered easily achievable targets.
  • Sporting would receive an additional Euros 15m from United if Fernandes achieves what are considered more difficult targets to achieve. It’s understood these clauses include Fernandes winning the Ballon d’Or.
With both United and Barca offering deals acceptable to Sporting, it looks likely that Sporting will now allow the player to decide his future. Clearly a decision is just hours away.

We understand Barca have offered a slightly bigger fee for Fernandes – however, a significant part of that figure would not be paid until the summer.

You'd feel massively undermined if at a press conference you said that you definitely weren't going for a player, only for the transfer to go through a couple of hours later.

I mean, no OGS, because he probably thinks Fergie still buys the players, but you might.

Sporting need to sell and they'll make a minimum profit of anywhere between 46m and 56m euro , United need a creative box to box midfielder who can chip in with goals and is at the top of their game . Hes expensive but I rate him. If Fred or McTomminay can make the space for him and protect him he'll be good.
