#MUFC have the option to extend all four players' contracts by another year.

Fucks sake
If we give Martial another deal, it’ll be a disgrace.

Anyone else think Bruno got himself booked deliberately because he doesn't fancy Anfield?

Wouldn't put it past the bottler. I bet as soon as a big offer comes in from a Saudi club, he'll be off.

Fernandes is phenomenally creative but to the point of stupidity. Like when you play FIFA and you hammer the square button in every situation to play lobbed passes. You just keep giving the ball away. And I think it allows others to hide, they just pass the ball to him and expect him to do something.

It doesn't bode well for functioning team especially a Dutch one with a foundation of total football aka every player can do everything.

He's a conundrum is Bruno. Without doubt our most successful post-fergie signing and best player. But he can be as much a liability as an asset. Capable of brilliance, but too expansive in his decision making in the wrong situations. The best teams have midfielders for whom 90% of their game is keeping things simple and being very safe technically when they're moving the ball from back to front. And then there's his attitude on the pitch.

He's not our biggest problem, but such is the need for a complete transformation that if we get a sizeable offer I'd be temped to sell. Same with Rashford.

If we're selling Bruno who do we keep?
He's our best player. He has been our best player every season since we signed him.

It's a huge rebuild job is this Dozer. Onana and Mount are new, so the jury is out. Martinez, Mainoo, Garnacho, Hojlund are the only untouchables at this point. Antony is improving and worth sticking with for now. Other than that, there are no players I'd be arsed about leaving, for the right price.

If someone put 100m on the table for Bruno, it's worth thinking through carefully. I'd take it.

Again, not the priority, but in a situation where big koney comes in, we have to think it through. This needs a complete rebuild.

Tbf we may be at the point of having to sell players to bring in some money. There's no cash, we've maxed out the credit card, we're 1bn in debt and at the limit with FFP. 300m of the 400 Hag has spent is still outstanding on the credit card.

We also need 1/2bn for the stadium and training facilities.

So if the Saudis come in and offer a wodge for Fernandes, we may have to take it to keep the lights on, pay down debt etc. That might go for other top players too. If we sell them to normal clubs, we'll get a fraction cos Arnold and the other silly cunts can't haggle.

We're completely fucked. It'll take us longer to recover from these cunts than it did for us to recover from what happened in Munich. Not to compare the human cost obviously.

No you’re spot on. The comparison seems callous but the Munich disaster didn’t destroy the entire culture of the club, suffocate it with debt and drag its reputation through the dirt repeatedly.
