Morning blue, not deflated one bit.

The thick giddy rags can't fathom that he's got utd to pay him half a million a week and that he came knocking at our door first.
We was never interested in him, the press spun the story and the rags took the bait.

What it has done has diverted all the pressure off us and landed it directly onto utd, no more top four talk for them, after signing Adams Apple it's win the league or bust for them.

Lovely jublee.
we seeminlgly were interested but didnt want to pay for him

he may cost them a lot of money per week but how many times have people said that they are going to collapse financially and yet they still keep buying......it hasnt happened and wont happen (their collapse).

All that matters really is what happens on the pitch..he improves them hugely and would have done so for us......

As you say...it was more about the coach...the only one they bought that hasnt worked out so far is Werner.....I think Harvetz is going to be an absolute beast for them....he reminds me of KDB

Utd have improved...Ronaldo will score goals for them....he is a world class finisher....Varane is certainly an upgrade on their options at the back....Sancho is the unknown in all of that.
Scoring goals wasnt united’s problem. Their problem was partly giving the ball away at the back The other part was controlling games when teams sat back. They have the same manager hoping for players to bail him out because tactically he doesn’t know what to do, they rely on a handful of players that have great moments in them but can’t keep the ball getting them out of holes.

But they still came second and made it an European final. Thinking some quality players can’t make them more of a threat is risky

I think his name is the bigger pull than the footballer.
Not saying he's past it by any stretch, for a 36 year old he's a fit fella but I think it'll be a huge anti climax.

Ronaldo will give them that ball control....Their back 4 maybe not as great at aplying out from the back but Shaw has hugely improved (finally) and was a real bonus for them and England. With a player like ronaldo who can have those moments of indivdual brilliance, they will be able to field a strong midfield of defensive players and just apply pressure.....People forget how good he is in he air and at freekicks as well.....
