And VDB sits on the bench for a 0-0. Must be wondering what he’s done

We have just complete and utter bottle jobs doing the transfers for us, Evra said it great "why did we even buy him?" United never needed him we had starters and depth in the midfield already, Because we're united and we needed to sign someone that is the real reason.

I feel sorry for him our formation isn't suited to him either.

I disagree with this TBH.

He was never meant to be a signing for the first XI. He was signed to improve our depth so that we wouldn't be stuck having to rely on Lingard or Pereira if Bruno got injured. The signing made a lot of sense at the time and it still does now.

I do admit though that I'm frustrated with his lack of game time so far as he has looked good in his brief appearances.

Could have just saved the money and thrown extra at Dortmund for Sancho instead

TL;DW: Cech feels in fantastic condition, kicking further than he has for a long time, training really well. Thinks if he knew that some time off would have done this, he wouldn't have retired and would have just taken 6 months off.

Interesting perspective.

Looks like Kepa might be joining Drinkwater in the U23s by the sound of it.

Media has a lot to do with this as well. They stole the flames and then sit back moralising on the people that act on it.
So Pickford has had to hire bodyguards to protect his house and family due to heaps of death threats over the Van Dijk incident.
So many bloody low life's on this earth.
