Manchester United have kicked off their season in stunning style. Impressive performances against Manchester City, West Brom and Tottenham Hotspurs have United supporters incredibly excited about the young United side that might just take the league by storm. United look invigorated. The injection of youth has given United a kick of pace, a new exuberance and a fantastic look which looks to hold us in good stead for this season and beyond. Despite that, it is worth asking, are you content? The Premier League is won over 38 games, and whilst the opening periods have been incredibly promising, maintaining that through to May is another story. As such, we asked our Twitter followers and Facebook fans the following question:
Given the promising start made to the season, would you still like a new face at United before the end of the window?
Here are the responses we recieved:
@OZMUFCSA in 2 minds about this. On current form you’d say no way, but given how young the midfield is, you have to think about whether they can handle it when things get tough. I would still say no, but wouldn’t be too bothered if we did.
@OZMUFCSA Early days but not been overly impressed with De Gea, hopefully he’ll be fine but he does seem a bit over confident/cocky.
@OZMUFCSA I think we have squad to go without, but would love Sneijder especially if Chelsea get Mata & Modric.
@OZMUFCSA Europe is a lot different to the league I’d like a top European midfielder especially if we want to challenge Barcelona.
I think we are set. No chance anymore if getting him but still would like to see Rodwell. Young, English and can play multiple positions including that DM role. Him and Cleverley have a future with England together also. I still don’t see the need for Sneijder. The club would much prefer Cleverley’s and Anderson’s wages over Sneijders. I would welcome him, very much so but there is no need for him. Have a look at how we are playing. I agree that Sneijder would be far more beneficial competing in Europe. But how long will Barca’s dominance last? It can come down to luck of the draw, Barca may be knocked out by the time we get to them this season etc. We proved we were the 2nd best team in Europe last season and I don’t think Sneijder guarantee European success. Again I would welcome it with open arms, I would love it but I am more than happy with what we have.
The youngsters don’t have enough experience (in Champions League capacity) …. I’ll welcome Sneijder to compete for that. For domestic title (including FA and Carling, our youngsters are MORE than enough!).

We’re out of our minds if we expect Carrick, Anderson and Cleverley to carry our midfield for the whole season. I’d love to see us sign someone like Mario Gotze or even Lass from Madrid.
It would seem that there are mixed feelings from the Australian United support. The signs have been promising, but not everyone remains convinced that it will be enough to last the full season, in which United will play in four competitions.
Thanks to all who responded!
