£1bn spent since Fergie: Man Utd's transfers assessed - the hits, the flops, the managers, the hierarchy
Monday, 16 November
In the 2020 summer transfer window, Manchester United surpassed £1bn spent on players since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013. The honours they have to show for it? An FA Cup, a League Cup, and a Europa League. So why hasn’t money spent translated into success? On this Pitch to Post Podcast special, Jasper Taylor is joined by James Cooper, Gerard Brand and Jack Wilkinson to take an in-depth look at Manchester United AD - that’s After Dominance - and dissect their transfer business post Fergie. We go through the managers (06:05), Ed Woodward and the hierarchy (23:06), and ask: do United need a sporting director? We also look to the future, including what the club should do with Paul Pogba (35:52), and Jack and Gerard give their 5-4-3-2-1: five worst, four best, three that got away early, two past legends to rejoin and the one future signing in today's market (48:46).
