We'll talk again in a few weeks.
Again, United could have had many other players. If we didn't sell him, they'd go after someone else and would easily land them. Their puzzle would be completed anyway. I still believe he won't have a lasting impact

well they did sign fellaini and Herrera before, both of witch will be sitting on the bench for Matic.

I honestly think our issue here is the definition of "impact." They already had Pogba, so they already have a younger and better Fabregas to pull the strings in the middle. What they needed was a physical presence with enough quality to contribute to the team. That's Matic all right.

The impressive thing about Matic's performance wasn't really about Matic himself... Pogba had one of the best games since joining United and that's NOT a good sign.

I am surprised why everyone in the world and many on this forum are making such a drama about about us selling Matic to United. From what I remember he was absolutely slated here for almost half of his performances.  Lets hope he has more of those with Utd. I must admit he did have some spectacular games. IMO he is hard working physical player, lacks vision and flair, with awful passing skills.

I think $40M is a decent value we got and the fact that we have Kante, Fabregas and Bakayoko for the position. We do need a fourth player in that position. Its a shame that management did not consider Chaloba for the 4th spot and instead sold him. From now on I will assume that our youth players are a business for additional revenue stream and not get my hopes high.for seeing anyone progress to senior team. Completely agree with someone who recently dais that if Chelsea nurtured Loftus Cheek properly into the first team he would have been at Dele Alli level now.

I would really like to know what in the world makes you think that.

And what do you mean by Flair?

Starting to really not like him. Seems to have turned it on since his move. Was lazy with us. Just took a swipe at us too. Hopefully he's flops. Reckon he will.

So what? They are. People who get upset by the truth should work on getting over it, not blame those who speak it.

Out of respect, he could've just chosen to say "I prefer not to compare them, they are both big clubs" or something similar.
I never recalled Mata saying which club is bigger than the other when he switched over.

But to each his own I guess.
I don't blame him for saying that, he's new so he does need to rub his nose up his new club and their fanbase.

It's a sign that United have declined when all they have to gloat about is how "big" they are. We never heard that nonsense during Fergie's era now players and fans won't shut up about how "huge"  they are.  They are officially like Liverpool.

That's the propaganda Ed Woodward asks them to spread to make them look bigger. Because they are always competing with Real Madrid which is bigger...

In general I think people are way too sensitive these days. What Matic said is truth. Why should it matter what anyone says? He played for us, he gave everything and I am happy for that. It's only our fault we sold him to Manutd...

Why the fucking hell are we still banging on about Matic.

He's gone, he's a ManUre player and good fucking riddance.

For christ sake close this thread and let's talk about players that want to play for us.

Exactly. It's an argument for losers to obsess about. United are indeed huge. The biggest of them all maybe but take a look above Ossie's statue at The Bridge over the next nine months. What's written there are the words winners obsess about.

Home of The Champions.

United can be as big as they like, we wear the crown.

It's such a weak argument as well. You can talk to a lot of football fans and they will eventually resort to we are a bigger club than you it's the equivalent of my dad's bigger than your dad.
