I have a feeling Depay will turn out to be a Nani, brief moments of brilliance but all in all a very frustrating player. He's still very young though so he may mature into a much better player, but it does seem like he has an attitude problem.
I have a feeling Memphis is the new Ryan Babel. Big hype as a young player after stomping all over a weak league but just does not look like the player with the mentality to influence games in the Premier League. Manchester United is too big for him and he doesn't seem like he's rising to the challenge.

Have a feeling when a new manager is in, we will hear about a "summer clear out" and Memphis will be one of the players they are looking to move on to try and raise funds for new signings.

Selling such a highly rated youngster after one season would be crazy. He only cost 21m, we could recoup most of that even if he proves not good enough after 2 or 3 seasons.

I called this a year ago, a lot of you owe me an apology tbh.

We should do a ''what time will LVG get sacked'' sweepstake.

I'm going for 9:30am tomorrow morning
I ain't apologising for ****, thought he'd have gone sooner. You're right though. It's a downward spiral.

You were right. I agreed on your side from the start, his managerial record is nothing to really shout home about.

Man, LVG sounds like he's leaving soon tbh. I don't think he's lasting past the new year unless Chelsea lose to them.

His value will fall quite quickly if he drifts away to being a fringe player. I think it depends whether United see him as really having a future. I don't see him being the type of super-driven player who will do whatever it takes to find a way to win that you associate with United. He's more the type of player who has a bit of skill and a glamorous reputation and likes being known as a top player. That suits Liverpool, Newcastle, Tottenham.

Unfortunately United are starting to become that kind of club: splashing out lots of money in transfer windows hoping to get enough talent to stick. When SAF was there this is what rival clubs like Blackburn, Newcastle, Liverpool tried to do to unhorse United but SAF had more of a coherent plan when he brought players in with the right mentality to fit in to United.

Can you imagine what Roy Keane would have made of Memphis if he turned up in the United dressing room when Keane was playing.

Unfair to say Memphis should be sold after one season.

Also, the expectations placed on him were unreal tbh. All this 'next Ronaldo' hype was pure BS and he should be given time to adapt.

Drive and mentality is there, just needs to find it.

We're not getting Mourinho before the Chelsea match, so either;

a) LVG agrees to step down after the Chelsea match. It gives him the chance to end; his career, on a win.

or

b) LVG agrees to step down before the Chelsea match. It gives Giggs a chance and would also induce the players to perform well for an on-watching Mourinho.

I'm confident we'll go for Mourinho because the Glazers will not want to miss out on Champions League football, and without Mourinho I can't see us finishing in the top four.

Schneiderlin can't wait for Mourinho. LVG has dropped him, but under Mourinho he would be arguably the most important player for us. Mata has a lot to fear as Rooney could take the CAM spot in Mou's 4-2-3-1. Also, Depay could lose his position to Young, as Mourinho will demand his wingers to work for the team. Is Depay too lazy?

I think we'll go for Stones in January, as Mourinho clearly rates him. I wouldn't be surprised if we bought a powerful target man as it's part of his traditional system. Lukaku has recently spoke about how he has 'immense respect' for Mourinho, and Ighalo is another option.
