We invest in young players, that is what we are good at — we’re not like other clubs who can spend fortunes on proven goods. We know that Manchester City are going to pay stupid money, pay silly salaries and all that. We can’t do anything about it.

We concentrate on what we can do to try to bring players in for the right reasons. We invest in those who will be with the club for a long time, who will create the character of the club, who will create excitement for our fans. We are very proud of that and we are going to continue that way.

Prophetic words.

Lol, Dan. You were doing so well until the last sentence there.

Havent been to the States in well over a year and have to take the kiddo over to see them.

Use it as your last night out before sprogdom takes over. Did Digweed at Fire for my last night out and had to miss Sasha at The Loft in 2012. Garnier at Fabric in November is plenty of time before December to have one last pre-baby rave and one you shouldn't really miss if you can help it.

I, alas, have to go see the in-laws on November 1st.

Gutted. sad

I see that United have avoided the big boys in the draw again.

17th successive season in the CL sorted and Sanchez' fee paid off in one fell swoop!

Well done Dan. Lol


It's what its all about, BF. That's one of the boxes ticked for this season. Now for a good cup run and 4th place and we're there.

G.T.F.I.!!!

So, £50m is fair if you have the money to throw around?

Di Maria is a good player IMO - and it would take £50m+ to get Madrid to sell him - so the fee seems fair

Yet Ozil only cost Arsenal £42m?

BF, one advantage of being knocked out this early means that you'll only be playing a 40 game season and you should be injury free meaning Utd will be able to play their strongest side every ga..... oh!

Instead of going down the tunnel to have a go at his players, LVG is signing autographs. Gotta love his sheer chutzpah!

OK, I can understand managers playing weakened sides when competing in Europe but surely LVG should have used the Capital Cup to get his players used to his way of playing and to get some confidence?

United Legend Ray Wilkins is quoted as saying that United's £ 59.7m acquisition of Di Maria smacks of desperation! What does this move mean for Janazaj?

Costa still has to prove himself in the PL. He'd better as I have him in my Fantasy side.

All the pundits seem to be lumping it on large on Chelsea and you seem to the only descenting voice out of all the (thankfully low number of) Chelsea fans I know. I for one hope you dont buy that supposidly title winning striker and prove everyone wrong.

Blimey Dan, coming from a club with a history of crocks I would have expected some sympathy.

Apparantly, our best signing this year is a bloke called Shad Forsythe.
