    Some players improve in their 2nd season but right now I'd be worried.

    yeah but if you watch their fan interviews they do nothing but moan and say things like " its not on were man united " blah blah blah sorry but it doesn't matter who you are or what you've done ! you have no right expect the other fans to expect to lose … there's another team on the pitch and these days there's no easy games. Our fans used to be the same , but once you see things from a smaller club mentality it's easy to figure out and I think the fans deep down really do feel entitled based on nothing but their own selfish desires. you've had your time now move over and shut the **** up! wait your turn and it'll come back around !!

    I'll now get some replies along the lines of ! you don't understand were this club that club thus proving my point!

    Keita was £60m

    Fred was £50m

    Both awful players

    Pepe trumps them both though, probably worth about £3.5m tops.

    Problem United fans have is they quote the 'United way' all the time. They had the Fergie way for 27 years, but now they're getting the manager in charge at the times' way, just like everyone else.

    the big clubs are to blame for prices too because they always go that bit too far every time! the prices for average players is getting ridiculous

    Tbh I'm not singling out man united fans I think it's across the board, but certainly more so at clubs used to winning every week. I think all fans including Newcastle fans btw have to accept that these days all the teams have good players and sometimes it's because they played well rather than you not turning up..

    The prices are ridiculous and we were partly to blame in the early days. These days the prices are ****ing ridiculous.

    I can understand why ashley is so tight because you need hundreds of millions to get in top half and even that's no guarantee

    I know mate, they are just an example. We have fans, mainly younger ones, who think we should still be winning the league. They cannot comprehend the fact that 2 teams have overtaken us.

    Wow, another predictable rant <whistle>
    I posted an indirect response to a comment you made yesterday. A response that has been posted on this forum hundreds of times. Your irrational hatred of me then prompted you to come back at me with your usual childish mix of infantile humour and insults, which is your standard MO,not only with me but every other poster that responds to you. I'm not the one with a schoolboy nickname for a number of posters.
    Read again your response above and then tell me who the arrogant one is. I've never had to resort to the personal insults you chuck my way at every opportunity, you can really claimthe moral high road with that. Keep windmilling Fosse, it's hilarious <laugh>

    It's that old saying you don't know what you've got till it's gone fans should think about.. theres along way to fall and not far to go up if youre in top flight football. try to embrace what you've got.

    At this moment in time I think the top 5 teams will be from Liverpool, City, Spurs, Chelsea and Leicester.

    He's playing well within himself at the moment. Kid just needs to let loose a bit.

    I can see what OGS is trying to do ie use players who want to play for United. 6 of the team last night came through the youth system.

    Problem is he has such little quality to work with that he has to pick Pogba.

    You started it a long time ago by going stupid on Shearer

    Yes it was a long time ago

    No, it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen

    not really 15 million back then for the world best striker was acceptable , but I was going to say we contributed in the 90s for 2 years .. other clubs had been breaking records for 20 years prior we just saved up I guess..
