Who Shall We Believe? Gill Or Fergie?

Who Shall We Believe? Gill Or Fergie?

Only days after Sir Alex announced that United would not spend any more in the transfer market, chief executive David Gill came out saying that he expects to do some negotiations even when away on the tour.

Who should we believe now? Gill said he expected some transfer activity over there - well that could concern player sales, not necessarily new acquisitions. However, it wouldn't come as a shock if it transpired that Fergie was merely trying to sooth the market a little by claiming that United are not in for any more players.

As I noted yesterday, the feverish speculation died down a bit even though there are still a few fabulous pieces of gossip so if his aim was to create a little calm then it worked flawlessly. But then again, it does not necessarily mean that clubs will lower their prices for star assets, like Aguero who is one of the most consistently linked players.

My opinion is we have to take Fergie's declaration lightly. Gill and the Glazers would sanction more transfers, that much is obvious from the behaviour of our CEO and if the right target becomes available at a reasonable prices don't expect Fergie to pass up the chance of signing him only because of a promise made at a press conference to a bunch of hackers.

Thought that Gill's comments were taken from a June interview...?

I hope Gill is right, and Fergie does tend to like to do the opposite to what he tells the press, but I do have this horrible feeling that we're not gonna sign anyone else as Fergie truly believes his squad is complete, at least until January or next summer. It's a good squad, but I'm yet to be convinced that it has enough to be as successful as before. However, when Ruud left, we only added Carrick and did so much better the following season, flowing well and scoring at ease, so we shall see...
