Name the club and name the player that was signed in January that we should of been in for.
Why is that limited to players that were signed in January?  They weren't the only ones available.

It was a response to the players we had signed in January being called out.
If you're saying there's no-one better we could have signed you have to consider everyone who was or might have been available, not just the ones who moved.  I defy anyone to say there was no better player than Drinkwater available.

How about if someone says that there was no better than Drinkwater available on loan?

It is widely being reported that we are perilously close to FFP limits.

I personally think that we had no choice other than to scrape the barrel in January with the New years Day injuries impacting our activity as well.

But logic dictates we would of signed them then? Or they didnít want to join or we were restricted by FFP.

Clearly Drinkwater was a gamble but it was a tough window.  Although that Bruno Fernandes Man United signed looks good so Iím clearly disgruntled we didnít break our transfer record for him.

At the risk of actually talking about Jack on this thread, much is made of our own FFP troubles when discussing selling him, but not enough of those of others. Could Man United really afford him, for instance? They've just spen the best part of £50m on Bruno Fernandes which Christ knows how that's paid for, maybe they'll make some back on Pogba but how much (and is that meant to pay for Fernandes anyway), and especially if they don't make the Champions League this year.

All this prompted by the news today of their 20% revenue drop and the more than fivefold increase in their net debt: https://www.theguardian.com/football/2020/feb/25/manchester-uniteds-net-debt-rises-736m-to-3913m-in-three-months-solskjaer-woodward

It's risen £73.6m to £391.3m, not from 73 to 391. Still eye-watering amounts mind.

Ha, yeah that's a misread! Still, 20% loss of revenue is significant.

They should have 20 points deducted immediately - which puts them in 19th and us in 16th :)

Given that is a quarterly result it will be interesting to see the annual figures.

BBC Sports report that Man U are "stepping up interest". How the hell do they know this? Do they show a photo of the player to interested parties and watch their facial reactions like the Tim Roth character in "Lie To Me"?

It'll be even worse when we are about to play them. They love to unsettle a player.

Wouldn't it be great if Jack tears them apart and we beat them, then he says why would I want to play for them, they're crap.

Sadly although i dont believe this current nonsense i think he will go there in summer. He looks really frustrated at some of the crap he has to play alongside. His team mates have let him down bad.

I hope of he does leave he goes better than united or spurs. Would love to see him do well at a top spanish club

Stifled and altogether ineffective with 0 support from his teammates.

He was but when he plays bad his team mates should be there supporting him. Not performing even worse than him. He cant do it all himself each week.
