RAGING Manchester United fans want to "scrap the season" after the club revealed their January transfer plans.
Red Devils supporters have endured a difficult first half of the season under Erik ten Hag.
The club sit seventh in the Premier League, have already been dumped out of the Carabao Cup and finished bottom of their Champions League group – with 12 defeats from 25 matches overall.
And supporters' mood took another dent following the latest fans' forum.
Fans were hoping for various incomings and outgoings to boost the campaign.
But those hopes were dashed by United's Chief Operating Officer Collette Roche.

She told attendees not to expect much activity in the upcoming transfer market.
Roche said: "We have been consistent in saying we do not see January as the optimal time to do business."
And the update has not gone down well with fans.
One said: "And this is way we fail and already scrap this season off."

Another wrote: "Did she forget we bought Bruno in a January window – that turned out ok?"
A third sarcastically added: "Good strategy, whatever we’ve been doing for the last decade is working well so keep up the good work."
And a final user replied: "Being consistent with our business strategies is only a positive if we’ve been consistently good, which we haven’t."
Sir Jim Ratcliffe's imminent £1.25billion investment to purchase 25 per cent of the club is set to go through this week before Christmas.
But with Financial Fair Play regulations and the lengthy due process of Ratcliffe's arrival mean big-money signings are off the cards until next summer.
Jadon Sancho and Donny van de Beek could both leave – if clubs come in with suitable deals for the pair of outcasts.
But Anthony Martial and Antony – despite being unwanted by Ratcliffe – may end up staying.
A fifth of Ratcliffe's investment is dedicated to improvements at he crumbling, decaying and leaking Old Trafford.
But it is understood those plans are also being shelved following the huge rise in costs of materials.
Instead of structural improvements or any rebuilding work, United are more likely to spend money on a "facelift" with fresh paintwork and updates to executive suites.
