[RUMOUR] Luke Shaw - worth chasing in next window?

    Several media outlets are saying Man United are willing to let Luke Shaw go in the January window. We appear to be second favourites for his signature behind his return to the Saints. Swansea and Palace are the other clubs interested. I see parallels with Kiko coming to us with Silva being a coach to get him back to where he was two seasons ago. Is he worth the risk as a Holebas replacement?

    Absolutely worth the risk if we can afford him. Our defence is massively letting us down at the moment and our left back position is one of the priorities to have sorted out.

    Shaw (or someone similar) and a good center back should be what the club are looking for in January.

    Then, maybe sort out a replacement striker for either Okaka or Deeney

    Bad attitude, fat and ****.

    It's a no from this pundit.

    Would happily have him on a loan with option to buy deal. As much as I like Holebas, he makes some horrendous mistakes and his positioning is woeful

    Enough about you, this is about Luke Shaw.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they're letting him go, he's really not that good

    He is reportedly on £130k a week at United. Not worth half that figure.

    I've heard Deeney is on double that

    A) this should be in the suggestions thread
    B) If it was, you'd see this has already been discussed
    C) He's talented (his form before getting injured was fantastic), but he's mentally weak and has been performing awfully in the U23s. I'd want us to sign him in an instant if he genuinely wants to knuckle down, progress his career and take a pay cut. I imagine he will sign for a desperate club, which pays him 100k a week plus, and doesn't get too annoyed at him for being fat and lazy. I'd be happy with a loan, with an option to buy.
    D) if we were going to sign a player from United reserves, I'd take Tuanzebe. He's a centre back, and has all the physical attributes to be a top player, but without the lack of mental fight.

    Where have you got this idea that he is "fat"? He is nowhere near as big as Kolasinac - who is arguably one of the better LB's in the league

    I'd rather have Patrice Evra.

    Remember when WFCForums members thought we should 'chase' Sigurdsson in the summer?

  16. Can we just cut and paste the Gibbs thread onto here. Pretty much the same arguments I think...

    We will get Gibbs for half the price when WBA go down in 6 months.

    Is Shaw really all that? Seen him play a handful of times and he's not really stood out to be honest. Breaking our transfer record on a left back! Can't see it.

    Well, time for me to quit this forum. Outwitted by a witless terd. There's no coming back from this.

    I don't think he'll come here because of the drop in wages he'd be forced to take. But in defense of his playing ability, I believe he's still struggling psychologically from his shocking leg break. On top of that, his manager has publicly hung him out to dry on numerous occasions, and repeatedly criticised him in the press which seems to have destroyed his confidence. I thought he looked excellent when playing under Pochettino at Southampton.

    I'd rather get Joe Bryan from Bristol City.

    Great player and would really pee them off.

    Luke Shaw crashed his car into teammate Phil Jones' 200k Bentley today.

    This guy gives me the impression that he's a clumsy Norman Wisdom type player.
