He’s scored more goals than Chelsea this season. He’s also scored more goals than the PSG front three combined since the World Cup.

He’s the clearest demonstration of how a lot of our younger players wasted years under Ole.

And Jose. He broke Martial, Shaw and Rashford. Martial has never really recovered.

That's mad. He's 8 behind Haaland which is also impressive when you consider Haaland is having an unfathomably great season goals wise, and Rashford's not even a CF.

I would have thought Rash has been involved in more goals than any other player in Europe as well.

You'd have to give some credit to Benny McCarthy for making our strikers that little bit better. I was one of those that laughed at his appointment, wondering wtf he'd achieved in his career to be able to coach but how wrong I was.

If we get Osimhen in the summer, I'm going to have to wear a condom every time I watch us play.

Rashford is set to be offered a new deal that breaks the 200k wage cap cos PSG have offered him 400k

This is the problem with a wage cap; you have to break it to keep top players. But then this can upset others in the squad.

It will affect FFP as well to the point were it might affect who we sign in summer. Kane or Osimhen will want more than 200k. It's likely to still be the case if the Qatari's come in cos they've made it harder to dope as Newcastle are finding out (good).

We need new revenue cos right now we're making 1/2m losses a week. CL football, player sales and a bigger shirt sponsor might work.

Arnold has a lot of responsibility to stop to decline whilst balancing the books and maintaining Hags progress. Hopefully he's not a useless cunt like Ed.

Can't really see that Rashford is is worth 400K a week Sid. Maybe it would be better for all concerned if he did go on silly money to PSG?

He's worth whatever we're willing to pay him. I would hate to lose a local lad over a bit of money, even if the numbers are revolting these days.

If he does go, I guess it would sort of be punishment for the shitshow regarding contracts over the last 15 years.

He could go and that would mean he's given us one good season out of 7-8 seasons. That's a great output apparently. He was almost a liability for most of the other seasons.

Regardless of whether he goes or stays this is why United should be ruthless in getting rid of players who don't do well in a season or two. Managers themselves don't last that long. Sure, we may miss out on a few good players by not being patient but usually the good players tend to shine far more quickly. We must also account for the shit seasons where the player was crap. The club extended contracts of a log of garbage hoping for them to come good. Did jones, smalling, Lindelof, Bailly, Rojo, bissaka, Maguire, Fred, mctominay, Pogba, mata, Lingard, van de Beek, martial etc come good? No. Only Rashford has given us 1 good season and Shaw has given us 3. All of these players have been here for way too many years.

Our few good players on the other hand shone very quickly. Bruno, casemiro, eriksen, martinez, etc. Even Matic although he was quite old and he regressed quickly. Greenwood too although he fucked it up for non footballing reasons. Think of our fergie players. Most did well within a year. Vidic and evra did well after a bad 6 months. Not too long. Rio, Rooney, Ronaldo, park, valencia etc all did well very quickly.

So the odds indicate we should get rid of players quickly if they don't perform. If Antony and malacia (who've both been alright but that's not good enough) don't step up next season then they should go too. Is anyone willing to give Sancho 7 more years to do well?

Fair enough to criticise Rashford but the problem with your argument is that it's like you're playing a football game and it all exists in a vacuum. The club has fucked up time and time again on contracts but cutting players loose is much harder than 10 years ago and getting ever harder. As a result the finances are fucked so it makes sense to hang onto certain players instead of making yet another hole in the squad that will need 100m in transfers to fill it.

As a general point, I just don't buy the desire for constant churn. Like if a player isn't good within 6 months, get rid? So many factors at play, one massive one at United being that the manager situation has been so up and down and transfers all over the place. The players are human beings. Doesn't mean you can't be brutally honest and tell them they won't make it here - god knows some need that talk. But it also means that the right environment, boss, colleagues, tactics can really bring other players on. I believe this is the case with Rashford and Fred in the current squad who might've been thrown out but IMO are good enough to play for us even if I can't see them winning a treble.

We've all become too obsessed with transfers IMO and don't see the wood for the trees. It'll be even fucking worse if Qatar come in. How many of us will be jizzing over the prospect of buying titles for the next decade. Not me.
