    I read that the reason Man United didn't get Haaland and look likely to walk away from the Sporting chap is because they simply don't have the money. Is this right?

    Or the alternative was they don't want to pay the £60M because it'll mean Maddison/Grealish/Sancho cost much more in the summer?

    Or the most likely version, they are a little bit skint and don't fully trust OGS so want to see how he fairs for the remainder of the season. Personally, I think he's a goner by time the season ends but it's clear that Man United's problems are deep rooted and unlikely to change with a simple change of manager. They need a full on takeover, I reckon.

    IF we genuinely did decide to pull out the money can't possibly be the reason.

    Not an absence of, anyway.

    Apparently it's because we didn't want a release clause in his contract (which Dortmund gave him) and his wage demands were also pretty mental.

    United clearly aren't skint, you madman.

    They're just baulking at having the piss taken quite so overtly.

    I did lol the other day when I was reading about Bruno Fernandes that United were unwilling to go to whatever (either €60m or €80m) for a player rated at €45m by Spurs in the summer. Word to the wise, don't take a 'Spurs valuation' at face value.

    That 45m is apparently the price that Sporting told Spurs it would cost.

    Highly doubt it though.

    I love that the United hierarchy are getting hauled over the coals for not having a call-back clause in the Sanchez loan deal.

    I dunno lads, I reckon if you give 'em a call . . .

    You're never a better player than when you're out of the team, so I guess being out on loan makes you Maradona.

    I've just heard/seen it expressed as an opinion in a few places and thought it madly amusing.

    That said, I've also seen a few stories today about Liverpool fans calling for Mané to be replaced after his 'shocking' performance yesterday, so, yeah.

    You'd think things going well for the first time in 9 months would calm Arsenal Twitter down but everyones frothing at the mouth for signings. When you ask them who and where they'd play it goes quiet.

    There's been this undercurrent of 'we need to sign a central defender' seemingly forgetting that we have a 30 million pound one on loan till the summer.

    That's a bit like shitting on the people who want gun control in the US for not having a comprehensive policy of their own, or the climate change protesters for not having the formula for a completely clean energy source ready to go. You needn't know how to fix a problem to know one exists.

    Arsenal need two, maybe three central defenders so even if Saliba, a teenager who's spent most of the season injured, ends up being Baresi they still do need to sign a centre back.

    "Going well" is also a bit of a stretch I reckon.

    "Not going as terribly" is a better way to put it.

    I've actually been following any English reports of the three Mac Allister brothers I've been able to find for the past few years having had them mentioned somewhere or other. Apparently, Alexis is bloody good and has been one of those 'on [Big European Club]'s watch list' players. Kevin sharing his name with the shite Chelsea/Falkirk winger makes me dubious, but again, by all accounts is well rated.

    Only due to their dad Carlos being my favourite cult USA 94 player that didn't actually get picked for USA 94, due to him being in the sticker album and sounding Scottish, which as that was a World Cup Scotland failed to make (still by exception back then, ffs), gave me someone to cheer for...

    Saw him play just once for Boca (or rather, briefly appeared on TransWorld Sports round up of the Copa Libertadores), mainly followed him in World Soccer reports etc, but he retains a place in my heart and I would often sign him on Fifa/CM as a result. There's a whole raft of similar players from the mid-nineties I hold in an inane, undeserved regard due to highlights on TWS or articles in World Soccer, etc.

    United apparently trying to sign Jude Bellingham from Birmingham. I'd imagine he'd go back on loan or something, although perhaps not given our current midfield crisis.

    The fees being bandied about sound pretty mental for a 16 year old (£25m+), but people seem to think he's a pretty special talent.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Hannibal Mejbri who we signed in the summer finds his way into the first team sooner rather than later, again because of the injury situation. He only turned 17 yesterday but he's already been moved up to the u23s since arriving and continued tearing it up.

    Yeah, SSN are carrying that one. 30m isn't it? That's absolutely mental money for Jude Bellingham. He has potential, but since when did that translate to 30m?

    16 years old? I would argue slapping that price tag on someone of that age is downright immoral.

    Likewise. In fact most of what most clubs do regarding young players is dubious at best.

    And how's that working out? 3 goals in 30 or something and the fans are already getting restless. Maybe he can go on loan to Sociedad?

    They've gone big into young Brazilians in recent seasons (Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, this Rainier one they've just spaffed £25m on). It's a rubbish model. Wonderkids are, by and large, overrated and once you've spent £80m on them they become a bit of a false economy.

    From the little Brazilian football I've seen lately I like the look of that Everton Soares guy and Bruno Henriques (is it)? They're not going to be the next Neymar in all likelihood, but they'll probably be half-decent.

    I'm not saying it was a good thing, just the way Jimmy phrased it was like it would be a watershed deal if United did it for Bellingham.

    For the sake of idle comparison, he's about the same age as, and doing about as well as Harry Wilson at Bournemouth, so I dunno. Lots of players do well enough on loan without ever being good enough to make the step to the highest level.

    I was trying to think of that young Spanish forward Madrid had (there have obviously been lots) who was super highly rated when they bought him, and then went on to be good on loan somewhere, but has amounted to me not being able to remember his name when he's probably in the prime of his career. I want to say Canos or Canelo but I know it isn't either of those.
