    underwhelmed

    Geez man relax. It's early days in the transfer window and there is still a major competition going on so a lot of players are not even negotiating their transfers right now. Besides most of the transfers are done a few days before the 31 August deadline. You shouldn't expect any major transfer coup until at least August.

    • Brad last year we signed a couple of players early on, no big name players and everyone thought we would sign more and we didnt, of course william guy doesn't remember that as he doesn't support Utd, do you remember all the talk last year?
      Also Utd have not made a major signing coup for a number of years now.

      • But last year there wasn't a major competition in the summer so players had time to negotiate new contracts or moves.

        I know where you're coming from re major signings but I do think Kagawa is a fairly major signing - he played a big part in Dortmund winning the league last season and impressed many people.

    • brad this is clive at his best - being a doom and gloom merchant - he is not happy unless he is denigrating united – and he would have us believe he is a united fan

      • I dunno, mate. Moaning and groaning has always been part of being a football supporter. Or maybe that is just because I am a City fan. I used to regularly go to games when we were somewhere North of Oblivion, and we moaned about the chairman, the manager, the players, etc. But we did have our inflatables!

        The thing with United is that expectations are incredibly high, especially as the club are always topping the Forbes rich list. This makes many fans feel that the cream of world footballing talent should be going to United, rather than elsewhere. It is understandable in that context.

        Being a supporter inevitably involves criticism: 'why didn't we sign player X' etc.

        Didn't the whole Green & Gold thing amongst your match-going support indicate a bit of 'doom and gloom'?
