The sooner him and RVP are fucked off the better. Both utter shite.

Who would you bring in to replace the two of them? Push Rooney back up top, keep Wilson around and bring in whom?

Before City signed Bony I was hoping we'd go for him but now I'm not sure.

I think we only need one more with Mata Herera and Fellaini all probably best behind the striker but who I have no idea.

Icardi from Inter for me. If we're spending big lolly it should be on guys that are scoring goals that want to make a name for themselves.

Bit harsh on the Dutchman, single handedly won your last (and last for awhile IMHO) league title.

What happened to the Man United that stuck by their elder statesmen, and carefully managed them to reap the benefits of passing wisdom onto the next generation?

So single handedly he went 12 games without scoring whilst we kept winning.

He played a big part no doubt but it was far from single handedly and Carrick was our best player by a huge distance. I reckon beating City to his transfer was just as big mentally for us as a team as his contribution on the pitch.

I never wanted him to be honest and despite his goals felt we've looked a far less cohesive unit ever since he arrived.

kinda playing devil's advocate here, but wouldn't Daniel Sturridge be exactly what United need. Scores goals. Quick. Skillful. Decent workrate?

I think Falcao is just in the wrong team under the wrong manager. There's times I see his movement in the box, little darts this way - that way and the ball doesn't get played. Build up is too slow and they don't play enough 'risky balls' into him IMO.

Van Persie has been a bit weird this year in how he can't trap a ball or knock it on for himself properly, yet he manages to score a few goals he has no right in scoring. The former has been more prevalent this season unfortunately.

How many other players are capable of doing that one mate?

Exactly.

The injuries have caught up with Falcao I suspect.

I'm convinced there is still a really decent player in there somewhere but you can't be the same player after the injuries that he's suffered. I think he will leave us in the summer and prosper but never to the extent that he once did.

There will be massive changes in the summer again. What kind of changes they will be depends on if we finish in the top four or not. Finish in the top four and we will bring in some serious top quality but if we don't then I think it will be a lower calibre of player coming in.

Thats one of the reasons Liverpool can't get any real big names signing for them these days due to only being in the CL every so often. Man Utd got away with it last season due to their recent successes, they'll pay great wages, and last season was perceived to be a blip and they'd be competing again this term. If they miss out on the CL this season though then you are correct, and you won't be able to sign the Reus's, Pogba's or Ronaldo's that the Daily Star constantly links you with.

RVP has been utter dross since he came back from Injury Last January he's put in matybe 3 performances in that whole time that would warrant him being in the first team squad let alone starting. If it was a choice of one of Falcao or RVP it would be Falcao by a million miles

Man United will still be able to pay top wages and get in top players. 2nd biggest club in the world based on revenue, world record kit deal with adidas and new TV money. Nothing to suggest that if they fail to reach CL this year that they won't be able to outspend anyone in the league with ease.

I read the other day that United will have the biggest revenue due to the new TV deal.

I'm not saying they won't be trying to get those players and pay scandalous amounts of money on them, but more like will the players want to come if they are a second season outside of the CL. One season ok you can get away with that, but two or more seasons and the top players will question whether it'd be a correct move for them.

Wishful thinking, United aren't small potatoes like Liverpool.

I think with a club of United's stature it's totally different than when Liverpool had an exile from CL

By stature do you mean the massive revenue disparity which has increased over the past few seasons? Liverpool was equally as famous/massive/etc. when they first missed CL football. Now, thanks to the good folks at Chevrolet and Addidas, perennial Champions League opt-outs like Falcao can collect 300k/week at Old Trafford AND have the luxury of a few mid-week rests.
