Because they're not one of the richest teams in the world. Yes they may collect a ton of revenue, but they're saddled with massive debt and their idiot owners are more concerned with how much money they can put in their pockets rather than spending on the team.

While I agree we need to sign a midfielder, I know we won't and we will continue through the season with Scholes, Carrick, Cleverley, Anderson, Giggs, and Kagawa. Hopefully Fletcher will be able to make a return soon. But still that's a rather weak midfield.

Hardly a weak midfield if they are all fit Fletcher was amazing for Man United a few years back, but I doubt he will ever get back to that again.

...................GK......... ...............
...............De Gea......................

RB..........CB.........CB..... ........LB
Rafeal....Vidic......Jones..........Evra

.............CM......... CM...............
...........Carrick.....Cleverly...................

RM.............CAM............ ..........LM
Kagawa.....Rooney.................Young

..................CF.......... ....................
..............van Persie........................

That team could win the league.

I would much rather have Valencia on the wing than Kagawa.

4 hours have gone from the final whistle and no one here (looking at you John) mentioned nothing about Torres goal (from offside).
If it was Man Utd I can only imagine the acusations of Howard and FA helping them win the titles.
