Manchester United Have Spent £150 Million On New Players But Their Fans Can't Stop Moaning

Some people have very short memories.

Posted on

Manchester United's new manager, Louis van Gaal, has spent £150 million on new players during the summer transfer window in an attempt to rebuild a squad which finished an uncharacteristically low seventh in the Premier League last season.

United fans are used to success: Their club has won 20 top-division titles, 11 FA Cups, and three European Cup trophies.

However, they have yet to win a game this season, and fans simply cannot deal with the club's current instability.

While fans of any other club would be thrilled with the players United have bought this summer, some spoilt Red Devils supporters* are convinced all hope is lost:

*We are well aware that some of these accounts are from rival fans.

Fuck it let's get relegated. One thing would be for certain next season, we would have some cracking away days!

United's team's going to be more top heavy than Lolo Ferrari. It's like a 13-year-old is deciding their transfer policy

At least now Kagawa and Hernandez gone Anderson can have 3 seats on bench for fat arse.

The biggest issue is the club buying up hugely expensive forwards, such as Ángel di María for a record £59.7 million, while neglecting a clearly fragile defence.

If United sign Vidal: Attack - Champions League Midfield - Champions League Keeper - Champions League Defence - Vanarama Conference North

Amazing that United are going to spend 򣅰m this summer and yet Chris Smalling is going up the pecking order in defence.

FYI, the money spent on di María is more than Burnley have spent in their entire history. The two sides drew 0-0 last month...

Higher priority to sign a world class Centre Back first than a CM. Need a leader at the back!

I'm not saying Man Utd's defence looks insecure, but they're playing Jennifer Lawrence's iCloud drive at the back next week.

To finally bolster defence Man Utd are in talks w/agents representing the Thames Barrier. Here's how they'd line up.

Selling Danny Welbeck to rivals Arsenal late last night didn't help matters.

Regardless of whether you think he is good or not, helping Arsenal in their desperate search for a striker is brainless from Utd.

After the team wasted Shinji Kagawa's obvious talents, seeing Borussia Dortmund's joy at re-signing him also upset some.

You might have thought that securing the services of world-class striker Radamel Falcao on loan might have appeased the fans. You'd be wrong.

Bearing in mind Falcao will cost more, has just returned from an ACL and in a position we don't need? #WoodwardOut

Man Utd getting Falcao when they desperately need a better defence. It's like buying another set of tires for your car that's got no engine.

Looks like Rojo won't play again tomorrow. Leave it Woodward to spend $24m on a player and not know if he can get work permit. #WoodwardOut
