No Midfield Buy!

No Midfield Buy!

The news that Anderson has joined Tom Cleverley on the sideline has been greeted by some comments form Sir Alex Ferguson.

With some pundits suspecting that the double injury blow might force Sir Alex into the transfer market, Sir Alex has ruled out such a move remarking,

'It is easy to say you are going to buy players but it is not easy to buy them for Manchester United, especially in January."

'I do not see anyone who could make us a better team"

'There are two or three players but they are not available, so there is no point even going there.'

It seems a long time since the name of Wesley Sneijder was once in the frame!

We need someone in midfield, I said at the beginning of the season that when Cleverley got injured we'd be back at square one and lacking quality in the middle. As great as a Sneijder or Modric would be I'd sooner see us take a punt on a youngster again.

"It is easy to say you are going to buy players but it is not easy to buy them for Manchester United, especially in January." - Fair point by Fergie, no doubt many will just look at the line "I do not see anyone who could make us a better team" and scoff. We've seen it before, Douglas Costa United price = £20 mil, Douglas Costa actual price = €6 mil.

i believe we are yet to hit true form this season we will kick on when it gets cold

You watch - he'll be forced into panic-buying someone in January, especially if you end up in the Europa League

City have been Panic buying for the last 4 years

... and they will do again when Tevez leaves and they get knocked out of the Champions League.

Fergie is being very stubborn with the midfield and it seems we won't be seeing the quality we want to see until Cleverley, Pogba and Morrison have all developed into the players they can potentially be.

Mancini said: “Another striker? No, I have three strikers and that is enough. I also have three or four players who can also play as a striker.” TF7 talking rubbish, some things never change.

"I have three strikers and that is enough" - That's why he has Tevez (1), Aguero (2), Dzeko (3) and Balotelli (4) then? Your interest in Lavezzi and Cavani, according to your chief scout, is because you're not looking at getting another striker right? Don't take your managers word for gospel.
27/11/2011 18:38:00
He said he has three because he has three, T***z is AWOL so he doesn't have him. The interest in Cavani and Lavezzi is all fuelled by the Italian media, believing what suits youagain TF7. And btw Lavezzi isn't a striker, he plays wide of a front three.
