    Sigh, was secretly hoping they’d find a middle ground and he’d stay. Double sigh...

    One of the few players to actually care about the club, of course he had to go.

    Would have been twice the captain young is as well.
    Suri Cruise and Katie Holmes are SP's.

    Indeed. This isn't looking good at all

    Well i wouldn't say it's to bad tho since it was obvious he was leaving and he is turning 31 this year and it is time for a big overhaul in the team. I mostly reacted that he was the first one to go. Well Valencia was first i guess a few months ago.

    I can't wait for this season to end. This mutt team of 4 managers needs to be taken out back and shot.

    At least you can work on whatever new team you lot build during the EL qualifiers.

    Greenwood really wanted it, unlucky.

    Not an EPL fan but that was a fantastic title run.

    Take comfort in knowing that you've seen the last of some of them in a United shirt.
    Shut your goddamn mouth, Gene!

    True, I just hope wise decisions are made during this summer. I know it's not realistic to think a team is rebuilt in 1 transfer window.

    OGS will be earning more than Sarri and Klopp.

    Which means by United standards he won't last more than half a season from here on.

    Players like Herrera/De Gea probably looked at the way the club is run and cant help but shake their heads.

    even Teams like Real Madrid actually have a wage structure for continued years at the club. Marcelo, Ramos, benzema, modric etc are the highest earners because they have been there the longest and maintained a certain standard.

    Meanwhile at utd woodward cant trip over himself fast enough to sign up Sanchez to strengthen the Chilean/south American sponsorships and throws the wage structure out the window.

    Utd used to have a structure and yeah they blew their wage cap a few times but that was for players like Rio Ferdinand and Roy Keane

    They call themselves top businessmen but they're gonna lose a 100mill asset in David De Gea.

    That gets people fired at most top business firms.

    My biggest concern is that we need a proper rebuild from top to bottom and make smart signings in all areas of the pitch, but I'm looking at Ed Woodward and our transfer policy of the last few years and I just know we're gonna end up going for has-beens that are "star names" like Bale only to sell shirts, when in reality those signings is one of the main reasons we're down in the shitter to begin with.

    This campaign is doomed to fail if they don't sort out their wage structure and get a DoF. Potential signings (and even moreso, their agents) will look at the wage structure and start saying things like "Well if Sanchez can make X off the bench, why shouldn't I if I play regularly?". Losing Sanchez will be tough to begin with, but that would be one of the players I'd get the fuck out immediately. Be it to China or Qatar.

    Houghton sacked, disgusting. Yes they've been poor the last few 23 games but he's kept them in the league for 2 seasons.

    I hope they get relegated...
