    Twat of an agent that City won't even entertain but United will. He's a money grabber who will be agitating the player for a move in 3 summers time no matter where he signs. We won't tolerate that, United will. He's a good player, as were Sanchez and Fred, but United have no system in place thanks to Woodward calling all the shots so De Ligt will not be able to stop the tide in that shit team.

    Let’s say we didn’t sign Van Dijk, De Jong, De Ligt or Mbappe and we won back to back league titles, back to back league cup titles, the FA Cup and a charity shield - would you think we made the right decision?

    If he goes to Utd then he's silly however it's more likely Ajax wanting a bidding war?

    yes we did really well but with just some those players it would be a lot better if not near unstoppable. So in that context yeah it wasn't the right decision. That isn't to take away from our accomplishment and achievements but you should always be of the mentality of how to improve and what you could have done to be even better.

    I love how people think any team let alone us could get all those players with the ones we already have and still manage FFP.

    As for the 2nd bolded park contrary to what you think we can't afford it. Even PSG is having a hard time. Sure they have Neymar and Mbappe along with some other good players, but they have to do things like sign Buffon and Herrera on a free while playing that youngster who's name escapes me against the rags who gave away the 1st goal. Also having Choupo-Moting as the backup striker. They may have a good 11 or 12 players, but they don't have a deep a squad as people think. We have a deep squad that helps us when there are injures and also helps compete for all trophies. If you want all those you suggested we couldn't pay half the players we already have.

    Just made history winning the domestic quad and “we did really well” also buying some of these players will make us unstoppable! What better than the season we just had? As you have seen at the rags buying players doesn't guarantee success or trophies. Trust the club seems they are doing alright. :)

    I think you mean "could be"

    As for improving the squad, yes that has to be done but we have people paid to do that and so far, they seem to be doing OK

    He did, I don’t think we will hold it against him though. Let’s hope he does the same to Dick Van Dyke next week.
