No idea how reliable this is but he got stuff right in the summer.

 

Please let this go through in the next day or so Everton somI can take a tiny step down the road to actually feeling positive about something I read about us.

 

Not another one forward and two back please ??

He has agreed personal terms with Everton. The ball is in Man Utd court to accept the offer.

How can he unless they've given him permission to talk to us though Paul. Surely they'd have to agree a fee before terms are thrashed out otherwise what's the point as no fee agreed no transfer.

I will be totally honest..... I've never seen this lad.

 

What does he bring that we haven't got?

Schneiderlan? He's energetic, can pass, is boss a tackling and has an engine on him.

 

He's a skilful player and imo will compliment the tenacious Gana eautifully.

I think my concern is that we may have a bit too much industry and not enough creativity. Then again is this gonna be the signing that gets barkley firing?

We're desperate for a classy cdm. Gana is the guile this lad has a footballing brain, he's intelligent and can play but can also tackle and put himself about.

 

I'm REALLY excited for this one. Please don't fuck this up on me Everton

he reminds me a bit of Gerrard without the prick factor (though not as good)

If I was good enough to be a professional he's the sort player I'd aspire to be, that's how much I rate him.

He's the pivotal player you need to dominate the middle dare I say like a Gerrard or Vierra.

If we get him 24M that well spent money.

He is a very uncomplicated player. He won't get you assists or score many goals but he stops attacks and gets the team on the front foot and back up the pitch. He has a superb touch, vision and awareness.

 

If you had him, McCarthy, Gana and eventually Davies for those two holding midfield places you would be set for a good few years and if one got injured (McCarthy!) you would have plenty of quality to come in.

Looking at the clip he takes the ball in traffic very well.... love how he takes it on the half turn.

Captain material?

Definitely captain material, he is genuinely the type of player we've been crying out for.

I'm flapping we're going to get gazumped on him. I'll be bitterly disappointed if this doesn't happen, as Paul says he's EXACTLY the type of player we're desperate for.

 

Please get this one done asap ??

I keep thinking .... If this fella is as good as everybody says he is, why the fook did they spend a king's ransom on Pogba.

 

I'm a bit wary of this one, so I won't be here with my tongue hanging out, until I actually see him playing. (If we do get him)

They are different players.

 

The bigger question is why does Mourinho start Felli, Herrera and Carrick... I honestly don't know why he doesn't because he is an improvement on them all.

He's a box to box player Bill Pogba is more of an attacking mid/modern day forward

 

We all know Mourinho does odd things with players at times and the man keeping him out is Fellaini and I know hands down who I think the better player is

Yep so no reason we can't get a top player off him again.

 

His ego is so big he's not arsed about giving a quality player to a rival. Ok we may not be direct rivals atm but we're building towards it.

 

I'm so glad we didn't get him as our manager I really am. He would have ruined us.

 

Not that he would ever come like ut my point still stads.

Pogba = global commercial value. Simple as that.

Erm, combining the best eleven individual players is no guarantee of a team. Having eleven captains on the pitch is all well and good until your on the rocks.

 

Considering we get little to no game time out of Gibson, Besic, Cleverly (not risked). That McCarthy is important but goes from injury to injury, that we've lost Bolasie, Deulofeu wasn't getting game time, Niasse frozen out, McGeady at Preston,

 

Thats eight senior professional midfielders. Eight of them. McCarthy, Bolasie and at a push Deulofeu come through with little to no criticism, but the other five

  • a few drinks Gibson
  • Mo 'Anderton' Besic
  • clown-shoes mafia Cleverly
  • overweight and overpaid McGeady
  • putting the crime in the Crimean : Niasse

So any player that'll play midfield to come in and fill out the ranks is a bonus, if said player is a top side international then all the better, but it's going to take more than just Schneiderlin, our woes go far beyond a single senior addition, whats the score on that Danish lad with the Irish name? Has anyone run my requests for Mario Gomez past Koeman? Why is Robles still being given chances - he's not taken the number ones jersey properly and not let it pass him by in nearly 4 years. Four Years!!!

 

What we do not have time for is limpwristedly pussy-footing our way to the end of the window and pushing deals through last minute, brinksmanship now will cost us league places come season end.

The clips look good, but I have to ask: Why is he never played by a team just one place above us in the league?

Mourinho can only answer that one Steve but I'd expect it to be an odd answer with little logic

he did steve, played for man united a whole campaign before Mourinho when it was Van Gaal. He started regularly for them and for Soton. Gana was from a team below us, should we not play him? Should we play barry every week because he's from man city a team above us? makes no sense.

 

his quality is there, he should start with Gana.

I'm hoping that the delay in signing him is we are working out a double deal for Memphis as well. I believe it will be sorted out soon. After today's performance the lack of quality options is plain for all to see. I doubt Walsh and Moshiri will be dragging their heels.

Completely different players that offer completely different values to a team.

Hopefully the recent games are why this hasn't been sewn up yet, and that transfer payment structure + terms are already being negotiated. Need able midfield bodies, and a French international (MF) will be our first since Dacourt. (I think)

We play with two central midfielders who need to be able to tackle and pass. Schneiderlin would be ideal next to Gana in our midfield.

 

United seem to play with Carrick holding back, Pogba covering the left side and another covering to the right. Schneiderlin would probably have to take Carrick place but they still rate him highly.

Why do we take so long to do anything??

 

There is no excuse for the hold up here, all parties want it to happen. Just pay the fucking money Everton and sign him.

 

Pisses me off it really does.

 

He's been surplus to requirements since the summer, we should have had it all sown up during the first part of the season and had it ready to be announced as soon as the window opened.

Carrick is their distributor, is usually the easy option for the CB's to find and when under pressure has the calmness and build to drop back and win headers/pick up the AM runner/move the won back ball out quickly either to the break runner or the empty wing. His quite excellent passing is the key to his game, means he isn't busting a gut game in game out which keeps games in his legs instead of having games worked out of him.

 

If we get Schneiderlin, and partner him up with Gueye, we'll need another worker bee to operate on whichever flank opposite to where we have our winger, unless we are going to play two wingers and drop Barkley.

 

Nice options to have, to vary play and tactics, we are on the cusp of significant change.

Yep, absolutely spot on. But as per usual a 2-3 week haggle will commence which will either see someone nick him off us or him miss a months worth of games where he could be settled in and helping the team.

 

Moshiri money or not, fuck all changes when it comes to us and transfers.

Why cant we play two wingers and Barkley? Like we have done for about four years now.

 

Most of the season so far we have played Gana and Barry in midfield, Barkley in front and two wingers. Schneiderlin can just replace Barry. Job done.

Who knows what happening? We have to rely on good old rumours because our club likes to do things do secretly. Which is good...but a bit annoying at times like this!

 

Anyway, I hope we ain't haggling over a couple of mill. United want the full £24mill that they paid for him. In today's market, and in January especially, he's worth it.

 

I reckon the sticking point will be more to do with paying structures or monies left to pay from previous transfers.

Koeman will not settle for 1 or 2 signings, I believe there will be more than that.

I'm sure he had a similar view in last window but by the looks of it it's out of his hands

 

If the rumours of Kone now going (please) are true then I can see more coming in but only if we offload one or two

Summer window was different, Koeman did not know the squad then, and Walsh only came in later on so there was not the time to properly evaluate the players, identify replacements and bring them in.

 

This window there will be more of an idea of who needs replacing and some targets identified, but its harder to get them. However I still think Moshiri, Koeman, and Walsh will not be messing around. We will just have wait for the end of the window and then judge.
