I can’t hold back the tears as I realise that the balance of power has shifted. If you disagree then you really haven’t been watching over recent years.

Today we were given the run around by our neighbours; we may have huffed and puffed but there was only ever one team likely to win: the most upsetting aspect is that they play the football I want to see whilst we are cumbersome and disjointed. Pep improves Sterling whilst Jose simply slags off those players who do not perform to his standard.

My heart is breaking, disagree all you like but the balance of power has moved, if only we had signed Pep instead of the pragmatic Jose who continually identified conspiracies but who is yet to convince me he is right for out great club.

We may finish 2nd which is am improvement on 6th but to see City playing the free flowing football we are famous for, whilst we labour is a dagger to my heart.

Yes they are better but we have improved too and Jose took over with much more to do than Pep. Give him another full season then let's judge.

Agree it's not nice losing at home to city. But it's only December, anything could happen between now and end of season . Couple of signings in Jan and the summer, We may have a more competitive team, Drop lukaku for a game or two and let him get his hunger back. And if Pep does win the league who is to say he will stay at city anyways.

I think that's a bit of an overstatement tony. They have a better squad and most people will not argue that. They will always have more possession because of how they play but we are very close and will not be one bit surprised if we beat them at their place later in the year.

We are not as deep as they are and when missing players like Pogba, and out of form mik and fellaini believe it or not which i though if we are going to play long balls is 10 times better than lukaku in terms of winning headers and being able to control the ball and bring other players into it.

we conceded 2 terrible goals and still should not have lost the game. For all their possession dog made one really good save from Debruyne and they had very little to show.

at the moment everything is going their way bounce of the ball and no injuries what so ever. let's wait and see how they respond when things are not going their way.

Well lads here we are. Completely and utterly out classed. They came to Old Trafford and made us look very average. The one thing I must say we have failed massively in recruitment.

I'll explain, we are currently playing with Valencia and young in the full back areas, Whilst they have performed admirably, they're not good enough. City have Walker and when fit mendy, a massive upgrade.
We move into the midfield and I must say they're light years ahead. Pogba is world class, but he wouldn't have made a huge difference there. Our options are Pogba, Matic, Herrera, Fellaini and Carrick. You could maybe bring young mctominay into that list. City brought gundogan off the bench for heavens sake.
Forwards wise we are okay, but the midfield and defence needs a huge improvement of quality.

There's a lot of areas that need addressed and unfortunately it takes a game like that where ( and I hate to say this ) we play someone just a step up in class.
We aren't a million miles of, but we aren't as close as we think I'm aftaid.

Sorry FZZ but what I mean is one player in pogba would not have turned that game around and we would have won 3-0. Look at the squad depth of both sides, if De Bruyne is missing for city they have gundogan, the two silva’s. who do we have? Fellaini, Herrera or mctominay?

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Dec 2017 02:28:50
To be fair, they were playing with a midfielder at left back, and he's done pretty well so far, apart from today's slip up.

The day has arrived to show the world that this City team, lauded and eulogised by salivating journalist's are in fact fallible and vulnerable.

This is not a day for beautiful, champagne football. This is not a day for slow sideways and backwards passes. This is not a day to retreat or take a backwards step! On this day we fight! On this day we show character, we work hard, we contest every ball, every pass, every tackle, we play with fury and intensity and above all we believe! We believe in each other, we believe in the fans, we believe we can win. This is Old Trafford!

Hard work, intensity, organisation, concentration and belief will win us the game today. We need to test them like they haven't been tested before. Run the channels, get their defence turning, make tackles, put crosses and diagonal's into their box, contest the second balls, make them realise that this isn't a game of football but a game of character. It's about who wants to run further, about who wants to tackle harder, about who is prepared to sacrifice and not leave anything behind, it's about who wants it more! The time has arrived!

Sorry couldn't help myself. I've not been this excited for a game in ages!

Fascinating afternoon ahead!

He had his chance last summer. Personally I would question his desire. Don't want him at United now. Ferguson wouldn't bother with him again. Hope Jose doesn't too. It shows we are weak if we do sign him.

Agree0 2Disagree

09 Dec 2017 22:27:45
Dwelling on the past is a weakness. Comparing everyone to fergie is dwelling on the past. Believe in the current manager. I'm pretty sure he's in a better position than us to make a decision on who we sign.

Agree6 0Disagree

10 Dec 2017 02:26:00
No he isn't redtash, that is heresy! People on here know much better. There are so many free top top top players available this summer. We need to sign them all and then Griezmann is the world class cherry on top. If they don't sign who we think they should then it is Woody or the Glazers who should go.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Dec 2017 03:47:14
Why is everyone against signing Griezmann. He's not a bad player is he?

Agree1 0Disagree

10 Dec 2017 04:39:02
Griezmaann is a very good player but going by what Ed002 has been telling us about the positions Mr Mourinho would like to strength, I don't see the point of spending that money on him, as this will hinder other purchases and he will be played out of the position with less effective.

The CM we are interested will cost a lot, means Pogba will be moved foword as I don't see either mid we're interested sitting on the bench.

Better we spend the money on other positions we are weak, rather than on Griez and play him out of the position.

Agree3 0Disagree

10 Dec 2017 06:48:16
Aren't we better off moving pogba to play as the attacking midfielder to free him up a little from the defensive duties and bringing in another box to box midfielder if mourinho is not happy with Herrera?

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Dec 2017 08:22:45
I think that's what Mourinho intends to, has we have been told among of his priorities is a CM.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Dec 2017 08:25:55
I question his desire. He agreed to join United then cancelled it the last minute making the club look foolish. Saying he couldn't leave Atletico in the lurch. Move on from him.

Agree1 0Disagree

10 Dec 2017 09:57:32
Yes he's a good player. But I question the mental side of his game. I question his attitude, his desire. His constant snipes at the English weather shows he's not committed to coming here. He messed us around for months saying he was coming only to drop it to show loyalty to a club who are now trying to force him out anyway because they need the big bucks. And the fans turned on him.

Agree1 0Disagree

10 Dec 2017 11:07:28
Agree with Shane and Mort. We went out of the way to bid and yet got declined but from AM but the player himself. Time and ride waits for no man. Am sure better options around and not like we don’t have the money to pay.
On another note we could sign Ashley Young’s cousin for the wings - Ashley Younger 🤣🤣🤣.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Dec 2017 14:11:54
Nonsense he is class player and we should do our all the sign him as he would take us to the next level. Yes he opted against joining us once but that shouldn’t stop us going in for him again. Need to put this ego aside.

Agree0 0Disagree

So, first of all, I share my birthday with Jonny Evans so put that your pipe and smoke it. Secondly, I may have had a little wine tonight so forgive me if I am less coherent than Ronnie during a transfer window.

Sunday is a big game and I hope that Jose wakes up and has an epiphany but I fear it will not happen. I believe it is better to die fighting than running away and in football that is also true. Inspire the troops, give them hope and belief, rouse their spirits, fill their hearts with pride and desire. Let’s not turn up to stifle and try and nick a goal on the break. I don’t care if they are the best team, like Pierre the famous French fighter pilot, let’s go down in flames (google it) .

We are United, a team steeped in history and tradition, we live or die by our standard, there are times to stand up and be counted, Sunday is one of those times. We win, or we lose in a blaze of glory, to be a United fan there are no in betweens.

Time for more wine.

Jesse's performance at Arsenal will have given him food for thought. Maybe we can press high with a few players and cause some chaos amongst their back line. Worry is that Matic and Ander would have to play out of their skins.

The motivational piece is way more important than formation. Win your battles all over the pitch and you'll get a win.

We’ll park the bus and try to catch them on the counter and via set pieces.

Not a fan but have heard a rumour that not only do you fellas want danny rose, but that jose would also like deli alli as well, i know you'll all say, 'well who doesn't and the likes of Barcelona and madrid are sniffing around, and the fact that daniel levy still hasn't forgotten how you snatched a certain bulgarian from them, and yes, alli is playing in a very good side, but the whisper is he may feel he can't progress any further; and the stimulus of playing champions league regularly and mixing with the best players could raise his game even more, so fair enough if you say 'codswallop! ', but that's what someone told me, the thing is, if alli did indicate he wanted to join you, i reckon levy would ask something ridiculous like 200 million, out of pure spite! anyways must dash, got to take my tablets now for the hallucinations i've been having! oh yeah, stuff city!

Is it just me or does anyone think Alli is overrated. And I would have a preference for other LBs before rose too.

They are english so you have to part with a bit of youl if you want to buy them for some reason. And they are on better wages than other leagues apart from Asia.

I think we will be signing Rose. As ed002 has stated on spurs page that he is leaving in january.

Agree0 1Disagree

08 Dec 2017 14:50:33
i've heard they want to delay official signing of Rose until deadline day after our game with Tottenham.

Agree0 1Disagree

09 Dec 2017 11:19:57
Dele Alli has bags of potential, but he mustn't settle for mediocrity and from what I hear he is not. He has acquired help regarding his representation and for his endorsements too. So there is every possibility if MU, Barcelona or RM wanted him, he would want the move. Levy will be very hard to deal with, however I'm sure he'd rather part with Dele than Kane. If I was Levy I would cash-in on Dele and pay Kane a king's ransom in salary to make him Spurs' main man for the next 5-10 years. Then reinvest the Dele money smartly and continue to build around Kane.

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Dec 2017 12:46:25
Danny Rose will be a great signing. I’d keep Shaw (at least until the summer) and let them battle it out for the LB/ LWB spot and equally do the same with Valencia / Young on the right. On that note hats off to Young for his incredible form.

If we need to raise funds, Blind and Darmian are obvious casualties in this for me.

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Dec 2017 13:06:50
I think Darmian would raise a tidy amount, he's a decent fullback in Italian terms. Blind due to his utility is also another decent player.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Dec 2017 02:31:58
Deli Ali suddenly become rubbish, after a slowish start? He's a young lad. His form is going to be hit and miss at times. I'd have him here every day of the week. Makes things happen and takes chances. Mind you, José would soon knock that nonsense out of him :)

Ed002 didn't bring him up in the sharkopod so I'd ignore it unless something's changed in which case Ed002 will say in the next 1! All eyes on rose i think, would be nice to see him come in during Jan but got to expect it to be a summer move if it's going to be.

Duncan castles. Don't know if he's got any cred.

{Ed004's Note - I may have name dropped Sandro but I’ve no ‘inside information’. Just think he would be an excellent signing}

08 Dec 2017 16:34:03
Duncan Castles is very close to Jose. Recently wrote a book on him. He does a transfer podcast as well.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed004's Note - Really hoping there is some truth in it. Valencia/Young and Sandro/Shaw are good wide options for the rest of the season}

08 Dec 2017 19:30:01
Can't see it happening. Think we going to have to plod on regarding left backs until the summer

What everyone thoughts on Dortmund Raphael Guerriero? Would anyone like to see him join and what position you have him playing?

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Dec 2017 11:26:48
Wouldn't surprise me if both MU and Chelsea want either Sandro or Rose. There will of course be other targets too, however it seems the writing is on the wall for Danny Rose. He has planned his exit and Spurs want him gone. So if MU or another interested party can agree a deal with Levy, then he will leave Spurs. He hasn't played a great deal, but before his injury he was excellent and he has been decent from what I've seen recently when he's selected. If he signs then I think he will be a great addition, especially considering the style we play.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Dec 2017 23:19:12
Ed02 on the Liverpool page you mention Goretzka is 3rd choice for us - can you please tell us who first and second choice are please? I'm guessing Milinković-Savić is one?

Hi Eds,

Apologies for speculative nature of the question but, if Real Madrid do indeed sign Kepa Arrizabalaga in 2018 (even as soon as January) do you think RM will still try to sign David DeGea?

Many thanks for any info you might be able to provide.

Hi Eds. Just wondering do you expect Manchester United to attempt and get either or both Alexis Sanchez and Ozil in either the January transfer window or this summer?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer sensibly about when transfers will happen but MU have not shown any interest in Alexis Sanchez. Oezil might be a possibility at some point.}

04 Dec 2017 16:21:38
Wish we had purchased Sanchez in the summer
Yeah would had possibly been £50m as in last year of contract, however we’d be so much stronger this year going forward.
If had the choice this coming summer when both are free, I’d still only take Sanchez. Ozil half of the time you forget he’s on the pitch
Should Zlatan not extend another year, use some of his wages to lure Sanchez.
