Yeah, guys like Fletcher and Anderson have no business on the Reds. I would be shocked if they could pull off a Di Maria buy. Rojo and Vidal are far more realistic targets.

Rojo is a good add.

Di Maria would be good too.

As an nyrb fan, but more importantly an MLS supporter...I'm glad you're gonna be all over nycfc. I can't wait for this rivalry

Fletcher before his illness, and even now, is a Man Utd caliber player.

Anderson, shame it didn't work out, he is not.

If SOMEHOW our ****ing executive director signs 2 of Di Maria, Khedira, Benatia I would be ecstatic.

I really think we will snag up Di Maria by Monday.

I'm not a huge fan of Vidal and anyway looks like he will stay.

Di Maria is nice and all, but he's not going to put out the gigantic tire fire in Manchester United by himself. For the transfer fee paid for Di Maria, I would've gone out and gotten Hummels and Benatia to address the back line, and gone a little cheaper on midfield.

Thing is now, where does Di Maria play? In a 3-5-2, Mata would play the right flank, with Rooney/RVP/Welbeck/Chicharito up top. Even in a 4-5-1, Rooney and Mata would take up the false 9 role. Can Di Maria play the left? My point is, someone will be playing out of position.

So easy to throw out names. How do you know those players want to come to United? CL football is important to a lot of players. Klopp certainly isn't the type to let an important piece like Hummels go easily. Benatia is going to Bayern. He wanted CL football.

Rojo, Shaw, Herrera, Di Maria and possibly Vidal on the way. I'd say that's a pretty good transfer window. Can't rebuild a squad entirely in one window.

I'm not just throwing out names. Both defenders have been heavily linked to United. As you mentioned, no CL games is probably the huge block to making serious bids to those players. Vidal would be a wonderful signing, but he won't be cheap. The defensive corps still needs a lot of work.

At least for Hummels it was only the English media making things up to generate clicks. Anybody in Germany knows that there was absolutely no doubt that Hummels would stay this summer.


And what a great win for Malmö! Finally a Swedish team in the CL group stage again and stupid RB kicked out!

Big test for Pool this week at Spurs. Watching LFC play defense makes me love McDonagh that much more.

Negredo probably gets loaned if Falcao moves in.

And then Dzeko becomes their #4, who would be the #1 on every BPL team except Chelsea, Liverpool, United, and maybe Everton. If anything, that makes it even more sickening

City buying Falcao would make me sick. I think he stays and moves in the winter window, if anything.

Hell yea, about Falcao. Still need help on defense. A lot of help.

Was hoping Hummels could have gotten signed. Didn't even think Falcao was an option. Took it as a foregone conclusion that he was going to City.

I'd guess that the line up for the rest of the season, barring any late big time moves:

LS: RVP
RS: Falcao

LM: Di Maria
RW: Herrera

LCM: Mata
RCM: Rooney

CDM: Blind

LB: Shaw
CB: Rojo
RB: God Help Us

G: De Gea

Bench: Januzaj, Valencia, Young

Can see us signing Strootman in the January window. He would be a better RM option than Herrera.

I love this move. No matter what kind of depth you have, when a player who is better than them becomes available, you have to get him. Di Maria + Falcao are so much better than the dross midfielders + Wayne Rooney. Hopeful that LVG will be allowed to drop Rooney when he sees fit. Even if RVP may have knee surgery soon.

I'd love to see Mata and Januzaj linking Falcao with di Maria.

Also hope LVG is already thinking about moving Shaw to left mid/wing.

You're right, those moves up front are fantastic, however, the major problem is the fact that they completely failed (up to this point) to address their defense, which is currently atrocious.
