@JacobBurns> United fans complain was that sugar daddy clubs spent cash they didn't have. United are spending their own cash.

Lastly the best part of this transfer is that we United fans get to watch one of the best playmakers in the world ply his trade for us during his prime. Thank you Jose, we really appreciate this late Xmas gift.

Tastes pretty good this humble pie. Hoping to have another piece before the window closes

@JacobBurns, at least we're spending our own money, and not the money of a rich man with no hobbies though, hey.......

This is worse than when Bambi's mum got shot. Man, I haven't cried like that since I got stabbed in the neck with a fountain pen. One of the finest, most creative and exciting players we've ever had, still with his peak years ahead of him, and we sell him to Man Yoo so Jose doesn't have to suffer the indignity of the fans loving a player that he can't take any credit for.

Seems like a panic buy to me. I don't think it would have the desired effect, not to say it wouldn't have any positive effect whatsoever but probably not to the extent that might be hoped for here. I'm hope I would be proven wrong though, and that Mata might be MU's gamechanger.

More grease to your already greasy elbow, david. This is without doubt, the signing of the decade. It goes a long way to show how biased one can be to think juan wont massively improve our team. With this guy, we are now automatically favourites to atleast make top four,eventhough three teams are still above us. More of the same signing, please.

All those Man United fans who scoffed at Blackburn, Chelsea & Man City for "buying" the league are eating humble pie. At least those clubs showed more ambition than trying to "buy" fourth place. For the record, I see no wrong in spending money in order to be more competitive. It's better than being a selling club like Leeds. I wouldn't be surprised if McCormack was sold.

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
