Given the lack of decent players apparently available and the unexpected depth of our squad as shown yesterday I don't think we need to waste any money in this window on panic buys, just concentrate on getting our existing squad fit asap.

Yes, I agree with you. It seems that there are a few
cheapish options out there, but no need to buy for the sake of it.

Not sure about this really. Our bench looked very lightweight yesterday. We know that Dann, Puncheon and Schlupp are now out for the season and we could still do with another striker I think. Hopefully some of the other injured will return soon but we are spread thin at the moment.

 


Vote for a Muppet - you know you'll get one anyway.

I think we could do with a striker, a centre back and a keeper in this window ideally, but my point is that players in these positions that are better than what we have already got seem to be in short supply.

Can we find out if the depth includes under 23 players. Based on Kane being 24 and Ali 21, I hope someone is recognising that they have to be given game time before their sell by dated. At least we saw KaiKai (did reasonably well - would enjoy service from Benteke) in our last Cup Match. COYP

I'm shocked in a post that suggests the sale of Lee and Mutch in the same window, for actual money, and it's the idea of loaning Wickham that initiates the longest argument.

Surely I should at least get some kudos for using your moniker in a post.

Some others around the 10m mark

Ricky van Wolfswinkel
Mateja Kezman
Afonso Alves



Falcao played very little in England. He was only at big clubs where there was huge competition, so he only got a few minutes.

Gervinho did well in the PL. I'd love me some Gervinho right now. Ok, he wasn't a title winning player, but Gervinho surely is quality.


Angel di Maria....what can I say? He played about 20000 minutes with 20 goals and assists combined. There was absolutely no reason to sell him other than his own disagreements with the manager. And he was right to be angry. There was no reason for van Gaal to keep him as a substitute. He has proven himself time and time again. A manager's mistakes don't make the player is a flop.
About the others, I think I covered them up in a previous post
