There was plenty of flux in terms of first team selections last season. Do you think you think you can guess what Mourinho is thinking in light of our transfers (both failed and successful)? Lingard as a first XI fixture? Martial getting a reprieve? Rashford on the right? A diamond to counteract...

Well the media have been briefed, we didn't sign a CB because those above Mourinho didn't like his preferred list of targets, this'll surely be the beginning of the end because we know Jose won't take that lying down and when he gets in a fight with those above him we know it'll only end one way...

With the 2018 window now shut, we know the squad for the coming season. I think there’s a lot more to come from certain players if only they would play at the level that they are capable of.

It seemed like an obvious position to improve to most folk.

Simple question, which Premier League team had the best transfer window this summer? Of course it's very difficult to tell anything before we see the new players on the pitch, but that's the whole point - on paper, who rocked it and who flopped? For me, best: Either Liverpool or Everton (I think...

Going to give it a 5. Think we needed two fullbacks, once CM, one CB and another attacker. Did two of those things but Dalot and Fred could turn out to be very good players for us. Think the earlier Dalot puts Tony to pasture the better. One less fullback to kill our attack.
