Most of those players weren’t  expensive enough for united, and that’s where their scouting problem comes from. It’s not exactly difficult to scout a 100 million quid world football star given the resources and unlimited amounts of money is it. So in effect, they’re not really scouting players, they’re just buying the allegedly best players 

Most apparent when Maguire was available at Hull City yet they based a bid after a world cup which everyone saw on TV lol. Overpaid scouts

Absolutely. They've spent over a billion pounds on signings since Fergie left. Mostly on rubbish, compare signing like Fred and Pogba to properly scouted ones like Ndidi and Maddison. There's no comparison.

Exactly, Man U have no structure in place, they don’t have a clue in terms of how these players will fit together. They are just overpaying for players, basically anyone they can get. There is no clear strategy there

Pogba is a brilliant player, it’s just that United ask too much of him and he’s surrounded by dross. Seems to me he’s a bellend which probably doesn’t help his case but he was brilliant in the 2018 World Cup when he has great players around him. Imagine your midfield partners being an Etch a sketch Darren Fletcher and a completely past it Matic trying to create chances for Rashford and Daniel James lol 

 

 

 

Their team stinks to high heaven - absolute dross all over the pitch with one or two standout exceptions. This demise, though, is the function of being elite and believing that you can just buy success. Pep took over a year to really get going at City. Klopp has taken several years at Liverpool to build what he wants. Poch’s Project at Spurs has taken time and patience. ALL have had a plan. 
 

Without a plan you’re just throwing money at the wall and seeing what sticks. You then NEED results and panic, renewing the cycle. More money, more disjointed, no plan, no culture, no soul, rinse and repeat. 
 

OGS is not the answer at Man Utd and whoever comes in next will likely just be a sticking plaster, unless they can impose themselves and a vision upon the beast. It will likely take years.

Three were under Steve Walsh. Two were helped by Puel. That still leaves a decent a very decent five. I hope our skills in this run deep rather than being dependent on Walsh, Macia, Congerton... etc.

This week's first about-face is bought to you by the words 'Ashley Barnes ballbag'

Eric Dier is the second most overrated player in recent times... only beaten out by England's latest bang average DM, Rice.
