Man United Shambles on the Weekend.

Man United proved again they're a struggling side, struggling to compete for the title if they don't sign anyone in the January transfer window.

The Central Midfield was absolutely perfetic on Sunday against Cardiff, perfetic is an understatement. Ran rugged against the likes of a Cardiff team and lets be fair and no disrespects to Cardiff but a team like Manchester United should of walked past Cardiff.

Fellaini & Cleverly, lets face it. You're both an absolute disgrace to be a United player, they both don't add nothing to our team, they just give the ball back to the opponent.

In January we need a Central Midfielder (who can keep the ball and an capable of an eye of a needle pass) & a Wing wizard.

I stress again, Koke or Gundogan & Di Maria/Reus or Sanchez is a must in January.

Englands National team's future compared to the rest of the World.

England and their chances in the World Cup?

To me I feel if they make it past the group stage would be an achievement for England. Face it they're just not good enough. The media always seem to think and make it out as if England have a chance of beating a top team.

I'm starting to wonder if the top National teams are looking down on us as if we're the same standard of Scotland or a more respective comparison Croatia. Yes every English pundit will say they have a future with the likes of Jack Wilshere, Ross Barkley and Andros Townsend, (Under 21s, Zaha, Ince, Stirling, Morrison) however, if you compare the youngsters that other countries have they'll get trampled on to be exact.


Mats Hummels - C.L finalist one of the top dogs of CD current and for the future (24)

Jerome Boateng - C.L Winner main man at his main club Bayern Munich, Current and for the future (25)

Toni Kroos - C.L winner at the current best team in the world Bayern, multi-talented passer of the ball, a starter for Germany and Bayern Munich (23)

Mario Gotze - A silky superstar in the making, if you haven't seen a full glimpse of the lad have a look and check his silky moves vs. England (21)

Julian Draxler - He has been playing first team football since the age of 18 and another player who the world is looking at. One definitely for the future, it says it all about the Germany National side if a player of his ability can't get in to the team (20)

Marco Reus - pivotal to his current BVB team and also a starter at his national side which with the talent they have it says it all if you're in the starting 11. a very explosive player with tremendous flair and talent (24)

Ilkay Gundogan - Classy with the ball, the ability to change the pace of a game at any time he wishes, with the likes of Schweinsteiger, Gotze, Reus, Kroos, Mullur and Ozil he might have to wait on an injury or for Schweinsteiger to retire (23)

Lars & Sven Bender - I don't see either of them feature in the German side unless Khedira is injured or needing a rest. However with Khedira being out for a long period of time and may not be able to make it in time for the World Cup either one of the twin brothers could take his spot (24)

Mesut Ozil - Mesut Ozil needs no introducing at all, arguably the best n.o10 in the world at the moment, played in the last World Cup and showed what he could do. With at least another 3 World Cups in him Germany can be very pleased they have a player like him (25)

Andre Shurrle - Last of all Andre Schurrle, struggling to get in the Chelsea team and also the German starting 11, such a talented player better then any current England wingers and he sits on the German bench. That says it all (23)

Players over 25

Sami Khedira
Thomas Mullur


Spain and Germany will battle it out for many years, possibly with Brazil and Belgium aswel but I think these two are the top dogs in World Football. Known for their "tiki taka" Spain are also dominating the U-21 Championships. People may say its only U-21 level but every national side build up from their U-21 and its the national squad future. ( I will only be choosing a few to underline as for some there is no need as you should already know they're World Class)

Marc Bartra - Is currently having a good run in at Barcelona and is capable to be a World Class Centre Back with Barca looking for a solid Central Defender he could be the missing piece to the puzzle also made his first senior cap last week (22)

Jordi Alba (24)

Sergio Busquets - To me is the best Defensive midfielder in the world, I seem to hear people doubting him and I don't see why he is the Anchor man for Barcelona and Spain just have a look on what he's achieved in his career and still only 25; (25)

La Liga (4)
Copa del Ray (2)
Uefa Champions League (2)
Uefa Super Cup (2)
Fifa club World Cup (2)
Fifa World Cup (1)
Uefa European Championship (1)

And again I stress he is only 25 and he has achieved everything (except Ballon D'or) and will he ever win the Ballon D'or? No, but he has achieved everything at the age of 25. Cool and calm with the ball with the ability to read the game and intercept the ball with ease.

Javi Martinez (25)

Juan Mata (25)

Koke (21)

Iker Muniain - Iker Muniain is a RAW talent, to see that he already has 27 caps for his U21 national side says it all, he started playing first team football at the age of 16 and is also the current U-21 Captain. Exceptional talent and one for the future (20)

Oliver Torres (19)

Gerard Deulefeu - He's a exceptional talent and an has an eye for goal, he's currently loaned out to Everton to gain a bit of experience but when he returns to Barca I have no doubt it will be big in the future (19)

Thiago Alcantara - I believe will be Spains next Xavi with Busquets and Cesc as the new Spain trio (with Isco on one side Pedro on the other and Morata or Costa up top), very skilful young player, if you say he isn't proven as an argument, you don't know Football, you just know when a player will be brilliant and he is one of them. Guadiola brought him to Bayern with him this summer says it all (22)

Alvaro Morata - I think Morata will be the best striker in the world in the future if his current talent develops further, he is pacey, goalscorer and a big lad. If Madrid gives him a run in he will prove to everyone what he's about and also no doubt be Spain's top man up front (21)

Isco - I think everyone knows what Isco is about already, Zidane thinks highly of him by replacing ozil with him. The ability to take on a player effortless and magic passing ability, the battle between him and Mario Gotze in the future is mouthwatering (21)

Cristian Tello (22)

Diego Costa (25)

David De Gea (23)

Players over 25
Gerard Pique
Sergio Ramos
Cesc Fabregas

I wont go in to depth with the Brazil and Belgium squad.


Lucas Moura
Leandro Damiao
Luiz Gustavo


Thibaut Courtois
Jan Vertonghen
Marouane Fellaini
Alex Witsel
Eden Hazard
Kevin De Bruyne
Romelu Lukaku
Christian Benteke

Every (95%) of the players of the above are world wide known for their talents and play in the Champions League. I may be harsh on England but it's the facts they have to face.

Please let me know what you think and comment below. ( Have not re read this )

Who Manchester United need to sell and sign.

+Footballguys +Manchester United +Sky Sports

Manchester United Transfers.
Manchester United : Transfer Budget £100M with players out EST £135M

The first thought of Manchester United is that they need a few players coming in and out in January but mostly in the business will happen over the summer transfer window.

Players Out

Ashley Young

Players in & Why


Ezequiel Garay or Mangala

Either of the pair would be a power house and improve the United defence dramatically. Moyes might not want to buy another CB but, I think with Vidic and Rio on their last set of legs a fresh leader in the heart of the United defence is needed to build with a future partnership with Phil Jones.
(Valued at £25Million each) United need to show a bit of fight in the Central Defence. Having two types of Centre Backs would be ideal a pacey sweeper and the other to go for the first aerial challenge.

Leighton Baines

Everyone knows that Moyes is a big admirer of Baines and everyone knows what he's capable of, with Patrice Evra also reaching his last pair of legs Baines would be an ideal replacement. However, with the price tag he has on him it would question everyone if Moyes would pay that amount for a 28 year old (29 in Dec) Left Back. (Valued at est £18Million)


United's Midfield are a total shambles at the moment with the lack of class in the heart of their midfield they wont win anything at this rate. The likes of Cleverly and Anderson are just not United calibre. The lack of creativity United will struggle this season unless they sign someone in January. Also I think Fellaini was a last resort buy, Moyes might say he also wanted Baines but, the fact that he paid £4Million more then he could of says it all 

Ilkay Gundogan

I Admire Ilkay a lot, last season was his statement to the world of Football that he is the one to watch. He had a great season last year with BVB leading them to the Champions League Final scoring a equalising penalty against their arch rivals Bayern Munich. But still falling short with a Robben goal in the last 10 minutes of the match.

His silky passing, composure and the ability to create would be so key for United. United have struggled and are screaming for a Central Midfielder who makes the game look so easy in the heart of the United Midfield. Makes it look effortless. Ilkay has been out for two months and will struggle to get back in the BVB team with the likes of Sahin and Bender playing well,  Klopp won't want to force Gundogan in the team with the pair playing well together. If United do decide to go for him in January he will be eligible to play in the Champions League. A player who can keep the ball and change the pace of the game at any time he wants is an exquisite talent

Marco Reus

Same as his compatriot (Ilkay Gundogan) he's also a very talented lad with 19 goals last season and already 10 goals in 18pps this season from Midfield this is exactly what United need. Playing on the Left side of midfield he is a hard working individual with immense talent. United could face competition from Arsenal and their rivals Manchester City with a release clause of £29.5Million that could seem a bargain for a player like him at the age of 24 and not even at his peak.

Overall I reckon United could get both with a knock of price with Kagawa going the other way. If they offer Kagawa and £45Million, I don't see why not the deal won't go through. It would be a formality  (£45Million for the pair)


The robust Central Midfielder (who is also very comfortable on the wing) has burst in to the scene making his first Senior cap for Spain this year and a pivotal player for Simeone this season. He is a very talented young player also wanted by Barcelona for a potential replacement for Xavi or Iniesta. With the ability to create with ease and a mentality to work for the team he could partner Gundogan and be the future of United's Central Midfield. He is rumoured to have a £16Million release clause. Players of his ability at that price don't come around very often. If United are able to snatch him away for Atletico Madrid (who are in terrific form currently second in La Liga) and Barcelona United fans should be very pleased with Moyes.

Sven Bender (after finishing this blog I went back and added Sven)

It would be pushing it to go for Sven Bender, Marco Reus and Ilkay Gundogan but in football, anything is possible.  Sven would be a bonus addition if they managed to get Gundogan and Koke, it would be great competition in the Central Midfield which would be a good problem for Moyes. Sven is known for his Defensive dogged work in the heart of the BVB midfield who sits and gives protection to his Centre Backs. (£14Million)

Angel Di'Maria or Alexis Sanchez

With my recommendation of Marco Reus to play on the Left for United, either Di Maria or Sanchez would be a world class buy for Manchester United.

Di Maria

With the likes of Isco, Bale, Ronaldo and Modric, Di Maria will struggle to get playing time at Madrid. Di Maria is a world class Winger which United could do with on the Right hand side. He has one of the best dribblers with the ball in world football and ability to score too, he also works very hard defensively aswel. Most talented wingers don't feel it's their job to defend but Di Maria thinks differ. Him leaving could be a 50/50 if the price is right I don't see why he won't go. If no clubs are after him he would be happy to stay at Madrid. (Price tag £27.5Million. Might be underestimated I could see Madrid asking £35Million for him)

Alexis Sanchez

Alexis has come to light this season under the new management of Tata Martino with 10 goals in his last 10 games for club and country. At this moment I don't see him leaving Barcelona with his current form but with the likes of Messi and Neymar garneted starters, the fight for the last spot with fan favourite Pedro and possible also Cesc he might have a think about on moving else where to get garneted playing time. With his Pace, determination, flair, hard working, determination to win the ball back and classy finishing (England would know all about it & also his El Classico lob) he on one side and Reus on the other United would be a great threat again. £23Million rumoured value (current form £30Million)


With Adnan Januzaj making a statement around the world and has also recently signed a new 5 year deal with United. It would be a great learning curve for him to play alongside these kind of talent.

My line up I would wish for United next year

Total Amount

Mangala £25M
Baines £18M
Gundogan, Reus & Bender £50Million with Kagawa going the other way (package deal)
Koke £16M
Sanchez £25M

Total of £134M. Will United spend that much and get rid of those above possibly not but maybe.
