Now We're Talking Football
Phil and Doron are back for the eleventh episode of the Manchester United Show to take a look at the busy off-season including the preseason tuning, grooming younger players for the new season and evaluating the squad for potential further moves as the process continues. Topics do include Federico Macheda, the potential move of defender Ezekiel Fryers to Tottenham, and how Sir Alex Ferguson will approach the tour and the early part of the season leading in turn to the early fixtures just recently announced. We also examine some of the pressing transfer rumours to evaluate their merit and what areas the club may address with some additional moves. This also includes the possibility of Leighton Baines and whether Patrice Evra could find himself in either a new rotation at left back or if the Frenchman could be on the move. Also discussed is the matter of Nani and whether moving him in reaction to some of the inconsistency may just be a bit of a risk given his unique talent and dearth of options in the marketplace. Then we have a brief discussion into the matter of Paul Pagba who has been tabbed with a move off to Serie A and Juventus and if this is the right move for the player in the longer term. Anto joins to give us several options given the level of mystery surrounding this move - is this solely a money move with Mino Raiola at the control switch, could he be part of a longer term strategy in the Italian marketplace and we try to evaluate the potential for Pogba at Juve given the midfield depth at present for the club and a pair of exciting moves for Asamoah and Isla on the horizon as soon as the market opens officially. Doron also give us an update on some of the newer Academy and Reserve signings along with some great background on the candidates themselves. Then we turn to the matter of how some of the United players performed at Euro 2012 and how the opening fixtures and opponents after Champions League midweek matches appear to have sorted themselves and whether this will focus additional attention on the squad where a clear need is yet to be filed in center midfield. We close the show with some questions from our listeners.
