True enough Bill. It might be a bit of an exaggeration, but we've struggled wide for a long time. We've either hand pace (Babel, Jova) but no or little technique, or skill (Cole, Maxi) but little or no pace.
I posed the thought however as I really think United are going to get Young who is a player I really wanted. However while I'm sure they will crow over there ability to steal one of our targets, if they get him but also lose Nani, I'm not sure if they will have done themselves any favors, and while Downing may not be perfect he's got bags of pace and a great left foot. My main criticism of him, and this is mainly memories from his Middlesboro days, is he's got no right foot, can struggled for goals when the club needed him to step up and get his foot behind the ball.
Food for thought, S.A.F ambushed jones and Young from under Liverpool's nose which if you ask true man u fans not the glory hunters, and they will admit both players was a little bit of a surprise buy. i be-leave Alex Ferguson is worried about Liverpool's very own king Kenny and is going to try out buy players we after because he knows king Kenny has an eye for talent,

He's done that for years, remember we were in for Vidic before them and he nicked him too.
I want Aguero, Kjaer and perhaps Downing, maybe we should have a pop at Cahill too....we would have an awesome squad then! Its all about CL footy for most of these players though, and whether we could attract them. If we don't get in to the CL this year, I think we will be snookered in attracting the very best.
