Man Utd fans react to Ed Woodward’s insight into transfer plans

It’s safe to say Ed Woodward isn’t the most popular of figures in Manchester.

The 48-year-old has been the target of much criticism in his time as executive vice-chairman of Manchester United, with fan protests like the one at Tranmere in the FA Cup, nothing out of the ordinary.

Speaking at a meeting held on deadline day on the January transfer window, Woodward outlined the club’s transfer approach. He said (as quoted by Sky Sports): “Our recruitment process focuses on analysis and selection of players over the course of a season, with a view to the following summer transfer window. As part of the rebuild we see this coming summer as an important opportunity.”

After hearing Woodward’s comments, United fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the matter, with some insisting that they have heard this kind of talk previously.

A couple of fans suggested that Woodward has put his neck on the line by admitting this summer is an “important opportunity”.

One fan meanwhile simply took aim at Woodward’s ‘lies’, and claimed he is “trying to con us again”.

Make no mistake about it, Woodward has effectively backed himself into a corner with his latest comments.

By admitting that the “coming summer” is an “important opportunity”, he has already put his name on the line when it comes to what United go on to do in the transfer market.

Is life under the Glazers really that bad? Maybe this quiz will change your minds, Man United fans…

A window similar to the one last year will not be tolerated, where the Red Devils failed to sign a replacement for Romelu Lukaku and went into the season proper with just Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood as their front-line options.

Meanwhile, Scott McTominay has delivered a glowing verdict on this teammate.
