Not sure on Dan James. To me he's Costa mark 2, very decent on their day but that's only every 5 or 6 matches at best.

Hope I'm proved wrong but for me he's a £5m squad player at best.

Know a few Man Utd fans and most are laughing their socks off at this one.

I don’t think Dan James fitted well into Man yous style of football, it’s my opinion that he is absolutely tailor made for Bielsa ball. I also think he is good to go, no mandatory 2 or 3 months of subs bench for the fella. Exciting times ahead.

OP, that's the one hope I'm clinging to. My other half tells me I'm very rarely right so let's hope I'm true to form!

31 Aug 2021 19:08:15
I agree totally OP! Bielsa has wanted him for over two years, so will have plans for the young man!

Playing Devils advocate here but didn't he want Costa and Rodrigo too?

Possibly didn’t realise just how paper-thin Costa’s confidence is, and that competition for his place from a better player would more likely send him into a shell than inspire him to reach a higher level. As for Rodrigo, better things will come from him yet.

Even if Dan James has an off day going forward, we can be sure that he will put in a good, and effective, shift defensively - and that already puts him ahead of both Costa and Rodrigo currently.

I understand that Rodrigo was a V. Orta idea (which Bielsa of course accept) and Costas did a great job on the championship but apparently not as good level for Premier requirements.

After the time of adaptation, Harrison bench and James inside, no 10 for Rafina. My point of view. :)

Fair comments Clue and MABC, I'm feeling a little more positive now, cheers.

TJ when you consider what Utd have spent on Pogba, Fred, Harry, Di Maria, Sanchez wages, etc, etc

Well the Utd fans can never ever slag off a rival club for paying over the odds for a player.

Very true Chris. Still think this is a 50/ 50 but you're right can't see us ever wasting as much as that lot.
