Saturday's goalless draw at Luton sees United go into the international break still searching for their first win in the league under new manager Slavisa Jokanovic, while the Blades have scored only one goal and registered just two points in his five-game league tenure so far.

United could easily have lost this game too, when Luton hit the bar in the second half, and all eyes now turn to transfer deadline day on Tuesday for a much-needed refresh of the squad.

What other club could employ the absolute best manager available and then not back him with what he [email protected]: This is going to be a long, poor season. Needs a lot of changes, no creativity, no width, 60 million pound [email protected]_driver86: Sleep walking our way back into the third tier. About three of this 11 are Championship [email protected]: At this point in the transfer window teams will know how desperate we are too. We will have to pay over the odds for not sorting this out a long time [email protected]: Convinced something is going off behind scenes. Nothing adds up, bit of talk in summer yet so far we have done the exact [email protected]_joshchapman98: Not being able to watch away games through official EFL channels when the capacity is clearly there is one of the many things wrong with football today. Appreciate it’s to do with broadcast rights, but they’ve shown it’s possible when they want to do [email protected]_barney: We are so bad to watch.. so rigid, no creativity play at all, just probe left to right and nowt comes of it.. I genuinely thought players already in our squad would dominate these games.
