What seemed a mere beggar's lot with only Memphis Depay arriving at Old Trafford for the beginning of the transfer window has now become a king's share as United were able to deepen their rotation in midfield and finally fill the right back position.
Through June, the transfer period has not been as exciting as the early signing of Memphis Depay suggested. There has been no signings since the early signing of the young Dutch winger, but many rumors have swirled around the club concerning David De Gea and Sergio Ramos.
United earned four points in two matches, maintaining their 3rd place position in the league table. Louis Van Gaal will be anxious about yet another misfire in an away match, United have only won two matches on the road so far this campaign.
Spirits were high this weekend in Old Trafford ahead of the rivalry clash between Manchester United and Liverpool. Last week, United continued their unlikely, almost undeserved winning streak with a tense 2-1 victory over Southampton.
I previously observed that it's as if the spirit of "jogo bonito/beautiful football" has permeated this tournament and inspired the players to put on a show. And what a show it's been so far, only seven days in.
