Mike Phelan, which is it:
- work permit problem, OR
- performance problems, OR
- financial issues.........??

When in doubt, tell the truth! This is good advice for all of us, even Man. U. winkeye

The wolf is at the door!

The level of debt at Utd is staggering, the Glazers are paper billionaires i.e. the value of their sporting interests, if they had real cash they wouldnt have had to borrow so much.

This is a real issue that is slowly seeping its way through.

Utd wont go bust over night but they now need to win things to stay afloat.

Fergie love him or loath him is in the autumn of his tenure, believe me when I say he is irreplaceable.

Utd have had a golden two years or so, in my opinion they probably have another couple of years at the top but when Fergie goes you are in trouble, the Glazers will have to sell and now the middle east is having financial problems I can see Utd being bargain hunted by venture capital groups.

Your days at the top are numbered, enjoy it while it lasts.

Why didn't they sign Ljacic??? Are ManU seriously pretending to fight Barca in the next years with the likes of Giggs and Ferdinand? Just ludicrous. Xavi, Iniesta and Messi will be playing for the next 5 years (Iniesta and Messi much longer). And ManU have no quality players with really good prospective for the next years. They will be surprised when they get thrashed again and again by the Spanish top teams and keep being unable to win a single game to Villareal

When Nick Leeson brought Bearings crashing down he deflected attention by "manufacturing" bogus profits and he was feted as a "star trader".

Utd have done similar by posting "robust" profits and of course an endless steam of trophies.

Am I a liar?

Read this in todays Times and decide for yourselves.

doh

Welbeck, Macheda, Obertan, Rafael, Gibson and Fabio all have potential to become world beaters. Oh wait, they are not Spanish so they won't make it!

Jog on Spanish fanboy.

have a feeling Fergie wants someone for now rather than later, hope this one doesn't come back to haunt us.

Before the Glazers apparently we bought our way to success by paying top money for Ferdinand,Veron, Hargreaves etc. Then they were going to bankrupt us beacause of the debt and now 3PL trophies and a CL later we are going to go belly up when the Glazers or Fergie depart. Which is it United haters? Fact is we have a stuffed midfield at the moment and no shape to the team as a result. No less than TEN senior players competing for 4 berths, with a different combination every week. We need to jettision one or two underperformers not bring in more..
