    Herrera and Schneiderlin is definitely the pairing for the future, they're both around 25 and great players. I've been saying for years that the deeper midfield is the most important in todays game. They make the defence better, they set everything up for the creative players further forward, give you control of the game etc..

    Man Utd may still buy a top striker, a world class CB, they've got Depay already. Schneiderlin will be their best signing though imo.

    Schweinsteiger being past his prime. Coming to the end? Making it sound like he is 33/34 lol.

    I'm just happy there wont be crap like playing Rooney at right back or Carrick as striker next season. :)

    Victor Valdes is leaving.

    The Philosophy knows no pity. We'll see how it does this season.

    LVG was coming off like a WWE commentator. It was like Vince just heard a cool new word and had to jam it down our throat a hundred times.

    The Philosophy on display tonight, folks. I've never seen Philosophy quite like it.

    Oh my goodness, look at that Philosophy off the top rope.

    It is music to my ears, though. I didn't want him to become Man Utd first choice goalkeeper.

    I am suspicious of anyone who leaves Barcelona for any reason other than cash.

    Age is not the only factor related to a player decline and not the main one. Injuries are IMO. They disrupt a player's form and if they are long and frequent they can simply make the player never recover his best level of play.

    Who are "we" ?

    True.

    When I think of on their way out, I think the player is heading to Major League Soccer in USA. He might not be at his best level any more, but his current level is still better than what there has been at Man United. He says his injuries are behind him. I think he will be very valuable to Man Utd. All the signings look good. Just have to wait and see how they do in the premier league.

    Mitrovic in for a medical, Newcastle stocking up on Quality with Wijnaldum of course another Centreback or ideally two is our present priority and an LB.

    Our midfield could conceivably function well in a build like

    Tiote-Sissoko
    Cabella-Wijnaldum-Aarons with Cab and Aarons as wingers or all three playing Centrally with De Jong replacing Aarons.

    What do you guys make of Arsenal's midfield? WAs re-signing the aged Arteta a bad move? Arsenal's personnel is amongst the top in the premier league, but always seems to fall into the second tier behind teams like Man U, Chealsea, and Man City

    Arteta is unlucky because it has been a really strong era for Spanish midfield. In another era, Arteta might have a few grandslam titles. Not a bad move to keep him around.

    Arsenal midfield is great. I keep thinking they will make a real title challenge, but they always fall short somewhere. Have to wait and see who else they sign. Petr Cech was a good move. Missing a world class centre forward.

    Liverpool have done well in this transfer window. Benteke on his way.

    I don't know if Liverpool will not just repeat the Carroll debacle with the signing of Benteke.
