    Now the window has closed, all the deadline day stuff is over, I've been having a look at the in's and out's.
    We were in for so many last gasp 9 shirt signings that when Martial was the choice it was some how as if''' top 3 will do, lets help this young fella progress''.

    No doubting Martial's talent and he has a solid contract for the next few seasons. This season is important for LVG, big things are expected. With Citeh getting such a flying start they could be Champions elec even at this early stage.

    The keeper situation will get sorted and if the fans that are questioning the summer signings looked at the whole …......the clubs done a good job.


    Transfer ins/outs

    IN Matteo Darmian (Torino)
    IN Memphis Depay (PSV)
    IN Anthony Martial (Monaco)
    IN Regan Poole (U18) (Newport)
    IN Sergio Romero (SampdoriA)

    This is a lift from our website;

    Sir Alex warns to beware distractions

    Sir Alex Ferguson believes sacrifices must be made in order to achieve success in any field as our exclusive series of his readings from Leading continues on Manchester United's Facebook page.

    The legendary former Reds boss provided a preview of his chapter on 'Distractions' with more to follow at 09:00 BST on each morning until Thursday 10 September.

    "You have to shut out all distractions in order to truly focus on your job," he instructed. "I’ve yet to encounter anyone who’s achieved great success without closing themselves off from the demands of others or forgoing pastimes.

    "I’m not suggesting that being obsessed with your job is healthy but I just cannot imagine how, if you aspire to be better than everyone else, you can have balance in your life. If you have two people of equal talent, it will be the way in which they marshal their ability that will determine their eventual success.

    "Learning to concentrate on the essentials was a skill I gradually acquired because distractions exact a heavy toll on individuals and organisations. And it demands incredible discipline to keep them at bay."

    Leading will be released on 22 September and Sir Alex starts his theatre tour a day earlier in London. Find out more and pre-order special or standard editions of the book now from manutd.com/leading.

    Nice bit of football last night;

    Chris Smalling....motm

    Luke Shaw...really strong game

    Wayne Rooney officially becomes an England legend. I'm sure all readers will join me in congratulating England's top goal scorer.


    SIR BOBBY CONGRATULATES WAYNE

    Sir Bobby Charlton- the man who became England's record scorer in 1968 and netted his 49th goal in the 1970 World Cup - delivered the following personal message via Manchester United:

    "I would like to congratulate Wayne on becoming England's leading goalscorer.
    "I have always been very proud to hold this record. Playing for my country was always an honour and a privilege and something I did with great pride.
    "I obviously cannot deny that I am disappointed that I now don't hold this record, however, I am absolutely delighted that it is Wayne, as captain of my beloved club and country, who now holds this record.

    "On behalf of myself and everyone at Manchester United I would like to say 'Congratulations Wayne this is a very proud moment for you and your family. It is a record that I am sure you will hold for a long time, and it is clear to see that you will go on scoring for your club and country for a long time to come.'"

    So that's over ..,regroup big match coming up at the weekend.......We all fancy a win ??????

    Betify favour 1-0...2-0..0-0 so overs looks a long shot?
    Pool have a few players out so prices early could be the way to go and overs may well come in.
    Anyway I'm having a play on this game and I fancy overs. So lets try a cautious approach which is almost a set and leave bet but has obvious in-play moves.

    Over 2.5 @2.2.......£100
    1-1..........@7.8.......£20
    BTTS..no @2.0......£40

    Looking for 2-0early would be good...Anyone else having a bet...????

    It's hard to call with both sides not playing well, but United need to show some intent on Saturday. The defeat to Swansea, whilst not a surprise, was disappointing having taken the lead. We should have defended a lot better and when we were 2-1 down we didn't show enough urgency or creativity.

    If I had to bet I'd go for 2-1 to Utd @ 10.0. I don't think there'll be many goals, I think we'll score and concede, but I hope the rivalry factor and the crowd will spur Utd to victory.

    Return of the Champions League, return of the Champions??!

    Hammers sit 2nd after disposing of Arsenal, Liverpool & now Man City on the road. Go on you Irons....

    City looked vulnerable against a below-par Juve side - and their habit of dropping points after European games is still there - so maybe all is not lost for the chasing pack.....

    I'm interested to see how long you are thinking of riding the £50 @ 12s?

    So far so good this weekend...Wenger's face after that result, chewing wasp's or what.

    The mighteh citeh stumble, as you say MK keeping up a pattern.

    We get a trip to the south coast today. Should be too good for Southampton but
    lets have a bit of caution and tidy up the money management side.

    Remove the stake off the 12/1 winner bet at 9/1 lay and let the £150.00 free bet ride.

    Martial is currently 14.5 (second favourite) to be Premier League top scorer this year. If he takes penalties and free-kicks it could be worth a gamble.

    Managers specials this weekend in the premiership super market.
    Will Liverpool beat Aston Villa or will they fail again and send Rodgers off with his P45.
    How many can The Devils put past Dicks 11. Surely a large win to nil would see him off. Will Louis pile the pressure onto his old adversary ,,lets hope so.

    Citeh on the road to Totteringham could be tricky.....Will we go top...Cant wait !!!!

    7 games in, top of the league, 8 points ahead of Chelsea and Man City looking shaky. As good a start as we could have hoped for. Away at Arsenal on Sunday; always a tough one, I'd be very happy with a draw.

    Woke up this morning to what's called Super Sunday. Well it is unless your a Chelsea fan, what is going on MK?.
    Our post champions season with a new manager was dreadful so I know the feeling. We had Moyes to use as the whipping boy but Jose seems as baffled as anybody by the lack of form. Still odds on for a 4th place which seems poor value at the moment?

    Icred will settle for a draw but lets add fuel to the Wenger retirement fire.
    United to win for me, let's put these people in their place.!!!

    Go you Devils........

    Well that wasn't much of a Super Sunday for united fans was it.!
    Gunners racing out of the blocks whilst our players wipe the sleep from their eyes. We looked slow on the field and in the players minds , they were the only ones that seemed unaware of the dangerous pace set by the Gunners.
    Plenty of time to reflect on that performance now but we do look frail at the back. Again...

    I wish I knew! First they said Terry's legs had gone, then Ivanovic came in for criticism. Matic & Fabregas are below par, Hazard is in no form at all, as before Costa wanted out but had to stay. Remy and Falcao are '20 minute' types rather than starters. They let Cech go and Courtois gets injured! Once you are easy to score against, everyone fancies their chances. Add some mental instability for the boys in blue and it leads to this kind of situation - not good, but you've got to go there to come back.

    Personally I look at the deals for Cech, De Bruyne and Lukaku - each seemed like good business at the time, but now?!

    I don't see how you can go from a 'rebuilding' season (13/14) to having the league in the bag with games to go (14/15) and then drop to a level of form that saw poor results all pre-season with not much to speak about since. Jose has managed the outs & ins, this is his squad - so it's up to him to get something out of the players. Problem is, with all of his efforts at motivation through the media - as well as his 'in one week, out the next' selection methods, he may well have already lost the dressing room. A long road lies ahead.....

    It was an interesting weekend in the Premiership. After 40 minuted I thought Newcastle had Man City on the ropes, 22 minutes and 6 goals later I realised I was wrong. Chelsea have completely forgotten how to play football, and I was happy for Man U to get out of London just 3-0 down.

    If anyone, most likely Man City, can get some consistency they could find themselves in a very comfy position by Xmas.
