Schweinstiger apparently training on his own. Maybe the end of the road at United for the German?

Believable1 Unbelievable3

30 Jul 2016 15:29:44
Perhaps they couldn't find a bib big enough for him?

Agree1 Disagree1

30 Jul 2016 16:56:24
I'd be sad to see him go, however, I think that's me thinking about how good a player he used to be and not about what he's done for United. In truth if he leaves it's probably the correct decision because his performances have been below par since joining.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2016 17:30:27
I'm not bothered if he leaves, as far as I'm concerned we never signed the Schweinsteiger I knew, and rated among the very best. It's sad when a player comes for all the wrong reasons, I read Vieri is making a China come back yesterday, horrible.

I suppose Schweiny won't be too bothered he got to play at the Euros, is adored at Bayern and is probably earning £500 for every stride he makes whilst training by himself.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2016 21:13:22
Beast you wanted him to be our captain just a month ago.

Agree4 Disagree0

31 Jul 2016 00:56:46
I wanted him over Rooney as captain. It's more of an indictment on Rooney.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2016 01:13:06
Im hoping that at the age of 31 he's not already knacked and jose can get a tune out of him.

A fit and motivated pig commander would be a real asset for us.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2016 22:11:48
TFM agent has come out and said all reports linking him away from Utd this season are false and he is staying put.

Great news in my opinion.

Believable24 Unbelievable2

29 Jul 2016 23:41:22
This guy need looking after, i realy do like him. I like him in the DM position, i think he will be a beast.
Lets give him enough game time to keep him interested in Utd and i think in time we will have one of the best DM in the game.
I would hate to see another Pogba episode.
PS- i can also see him as a box to box player in the future, i think his talent would be wasted in defense, no offense to any defender out there, i was a defender myself.

Agree3 Disagree0

30 Jul 2016 05:06:59
Can you imagine maybe 2 years time a midfield dynamic duo of TFM and Pogba?

Agree4 Disagree0

30 Jul 2016 05:36:30
On TFM -
"His agent, Jonathan Barnett, has hit out at any speculation linking Fosu-Mensah with an Old Trafford exit. "

He told IBTimesUK : "There is no truth in it. These reports are complete rubbish. "

Great news.

Agree4 Disagree0

30 Jul 2016 08:17:33
Perth and murph

For some considerable months I have said that TFM looks a beast and believe his best position will be CM and when the PP rumours started said the PP TFM axis in midfield is potentially a great one. It got a few disagrees but I maintain that TFM has potential to be a real beast in midfield, perhaps something we haven't had since the great Roy Keane. TFM has to develop and have the right attitude but from what I have seen he has all the tools.

Agree4 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I think Fosu Mensah is a bit special as well.}

30 Jul 2016 09:21:11
Thanks Ed

I watched Keane develop at Nottingham Forrest before he went to United, physically TFM has possibly a better physique at the same age. It has to be in his head now, because he is at the age where he has to take the step up, where Keane took the step up and kept stepping up. All too many fail, not because of skill but because of the mental side, I just see TFM in our midfield in front of others we already have, who haven't taken their chance. This next year or two will tell us. I was at the game where PP came on as a sub and you could see his talent. Talents often need to work in combinations, Vieira and Petit, Keane and Scholes, maybe it's way too early but PP and TFM just has me thinking.

Agree2 Disagree0

30 Jul 2016 09:49:59
It would be fantastic. A powerful fast skilful midfield duo once again I hope TFM keeps his head down and works hard. He has all the tools to be a class player.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2016 10:10:12
His contract runs out next season and he's just hired Aidy Ward. I hope we don't see him leave a la Pogba but I get the feeling there's a big cat and mouse game going on at the moment. Hopefully he signs an extension.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2016 10:47:28
Question about what we would be best scenario for us/ TFM longterm.
1. Stay and get 10 starts, another 10 sub appearances spread between RB/ HM
2. Loan to a Burnley/ Boro/ Newcastle for season playing 30/ 40 games in whatever his preferred position is.
I want him to stay. but not sat on the bench and for me if we end up with Pogba I feel we need to use Carrick as HM.

Agree0 Disagree1

30 Jul 2016 11:13:08
If I were him I wouldn't sign a new contract just yet too. He broke out last season under LVG who was fired soon after. In comes Jose with his perceived bad youth record. I'd actually wait till January to see what my prospects in the club are and to see if the new manager rates me or not. I think it's pretty smart of him how he's playing it but he will commit in the end.

Agree1 Disagree1

30 Jul 2016 11:28:31
Brad76 - good question.
It's always a hard decision whether he would learn and develop quicker around the likes of Rooney, Malta, Ibra, mickey (Pogba) or develop quicker as himself getting more game time with another team.
My view is that really good players get up to that level by being around the best.
Mourinho also seems to want to keep him around for now.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Jul 2016 17:01:22
I agree with red man, him and Pogba may develop together. And it would be crazy to see another duo in midfield for us who could actually compete with the Scholes/ Keane era! His ability in tracking back and tackling puts him ahead of a few in my eyes, and I think he'd learn a lot from Carrick.

Also TFM loves it here, you can tell from his tweets and Insta, all the young lads at the club seem to have a bond wich is good to see.

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Jul 2016 18:11:36

Hi Ed's,

Any more interest shown in the young Turkish midfielder Oguzhan Özyakup from Besiktas?



Believable0 Unbelievable1

{Ed001's Note - nothing changed that I am aware of.}

29 Jul 2016 15:15:29
When the Pogba dust has settled do any of the Eds think another defender will be signed?

As mentioned prior, I'd like Johnathan Tah to come in, but, as a lot of people have mentioned they would like someone with alittle more experience?

Cheers for any info you may have?


Believable0 Unbelievable0

{Ed001's Note - if Jose has his way, which he probably will, then yes, there will be one more centre back on the way in.}

29 Jul 2016 16:07:57
Cheers ed, any ideas as to who? It's been very quiet.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - not right now I don't, no.}

{Ed001's Note - no it makes me 21 again! Cheers mate, it has been good so far.}

29 Jul 2016 18:23:05
I think there could be a compromise of an old head defender coming In who does not cost the earth with a view that next year that area becomes the priority.
Miranda has been mentioned.

Agree2 Disagree0

29 Jul 2016 23:00:56
Can't wait to see all of these apparent defenders playing. We'll have enough to fill the whole starting 11 if these silly comments are true.

a couple of UK tabloids reporting in last hour that TFM has been told by Jose today that he won't feature in the first team plans this season - can't be right can it?

Believable2 Unbelievable8

28 Jul 2016 19:10:15
UK tabloids? Tells me all I need to know. He posted that he was recovering, therefore not training. An 18yr old who has looked very promising, highly unlikely he will be sold, on loan maybe?

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 19:25:27
It said on loan.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 19:45:08
Theres absolutely no way TFM should be let go is mourinho having a laugh sack him right now disgraceful decision if true.

Agree5 Disagree6

28 Jul 2016 20:32:10
It's ok, we will sign him back in 4 years for £120 million.

Agree7 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 20:37:12
Could be because he's refusing to sign a new MU deal?

Agree0 Disagree6

28 Jul 2016 22:26:36

I presume that was tongue in cheek?

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Jul 2016 08:09:21
A couple of players weren't at training so the daily fail bangs out a click bait.

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Jul 2016 11:13:33
I don't agree with loaning TFM out but Mou is boss and he was brought in to win. If this is part of his plan then let's accept it and move on. I'm sure he won't be sold, only loaned.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 14:43:11
Apparently Januzaj and Pereira available for loans this season. oh and be who shall not be named is a done deal by the way for some good news.

Believable5 Unbelievable2

28 Jul 2016 15:04:57
Ah excellent. I was just looking to see if there was any further PP announcements. Great news :-D.

Agree1 Disagree1

28 Jul 2016 15:15:49
Hopefully it will kick start their careers, I worry about Januzaj though as from everything I've seen and read his attitude stinks. Maybe if the link to Sunderland is true then working with Moyes again may get him going again.

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 15:23:50
Hope its not true about Perreia - training alongside zlatan, herrera, mata, schneidelin etc etc got to be better than possibly going to Fulham (one whisper today) on loan .

Yes some players across the PL benefit from playing regularly in a lower league . Beckham, Kane, Cleverly. but its only a small small amount . big mistake I think and has to be taken as a slap in the face to the lad no matter how its dressed up.

Agree3 Disagree2

28 Jul 2016 15:33:17
Januzaj needs a PL loan where he plays each week, same with Pereira 👍🏻.

Agree9 Disagree1

28 Jul 2016 16:05:06
They both need gametime. I'd love to see a consistently picked pereira, unfortunately it will not happen at United this season.

Agree9 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 17:16:35
Think somewhere like Burnley be ideal for both. Good, young up and coming manager in Sean Dyche and decent football. No expectation other than hard time to stop up so real chance fur some regular play and bit of character building.

Agree7 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 17:27:11
i agree with angelred, but if it's anything more then a loan, say a loan wit's a buy out price I would hate Jose straight off Even if he was to get Pogba. I hope to see Periera a big part of this clubs future.

Agree3 Disagree1

28 Jul 2016 18:07:47
Jesus cr92
You would hate him. Wow.

Agree2 Disagree1

28 Jul 2016 22:48:16
TFM looks every bit a Mourinho player so I think this is the papers playing guess who!
Pereira reminds me of the Brazilian Chap at Chelsea that Mourinho liked so whether it is loan or remain I think Hemail has bright future at the club.

Agree2 Disagree0

29 Jul 2016 03:22:08
Do not bring Christ into this :0 how dare you say your lords name in vain? He's not my lord, heck he's just a mere prophet 😂 Lol what would your mum say Ken? Or is it only barbie you answer to? I wasn't even happy with Mourinho in the first place, but who can't be excited when he's bringing Zlatan and Pogba with him? I would've preferred Pep, but he choose citeh. So yh tbh for me, Joses arrogance and childish antics makes it easy for me to pass judgement and dislike him! And Periera was a part of this club before Mourinho. I genuinely love Periera as a player and only want good things for him, not for Jose tho, I want United to succeed with him, but if Joses wasn't here I wouldn't give 1 cr*p about him 😊 So if he's getting rid of TFM and Perierra, 2 fingers to Jose! And if you don't like it or believe it. You know what you can do Ken play with your smooth parts ;)

Also If anyone remembers how fake that 1st greeting between Mou and sir Bobby charlton at carrington was 😂😂 That is exactly how I felt 😂 A bit shocked and kindve distraught we've actually got him running our club! All the best to him tho. And to you and your smooth parts Ken 😂😭.

JM to pull out of PP deal (partly to stick it to Juve and partly because there are other just as viable options) and he will sign Matuidi!

you heard it here first.

Believable6 Unbelievable34

27 Jul 2016 09:39:10
I read this morning that PP's agent had cancelled the medical in Miami. I really hope so. It's not my money so I don't care how much we spend on players. What I do not like is being held to ransom by agents wanting ridiculous fees. Let Pogba go, not sure he really wanted the move back, despite what has been said. Let's move on to JM's other targets.

Agree6 Disagree5

27 Jul 2016 09:49:40
We didn't, we heard it in about 20 different places over the last month yet it still seems like we are looking at the player, strange isn't it?

Agree5 Disagree2

27 Jul 2016 10:16:45
I hope you're right EZRS. I feel really strongly about his potential transfer - I know it's not my money and United are rolling in cash/ premiership fees going up with Sky money, but:

1. Hate the idea of United looking like mugs, paying over the odds for a player who isn't worth the fee yet - plus (it appears, though could be wrong) being manipulated by an avaricious agent who wants 20% of the fee.

2. If I'm right about the agent, then he'll surely push Poggers into agitating for another transfer in a few years - pocketing yet another mountain of money. Reminds me of Anelka and his charming brothers who kept him on the move - £120m fees accumulated I believe. So 20% of that. (Apologies for crude calculations - sure it's much more complex! ) I know we also have Mino's Zlatan and Micki T but, even if they were fee-hunting also, I'm guessing the money won't be so much.

3. While we definitely need more energy in midfield, I believe that we are in more desperate need of a DCM such as Carvalho, Matuidi, Matic -or even TFM - to protect the unforged defence. This is made for Carrick but he's surely only part-time now. A CDM would then allow us to get the best out of Schneiderlin who played his best box-to-box football at S'oton with Wanyama behind him.

4. Thus (and I know I'm playing football manager here! ) if we pay £30m for a CDM, this could even free up some money to buy another more creative MF such as Kroos, if he could be persuaded to come. So rather than one B2B MF I'd rather have a CDM/ MF for the same money, which would give us a more balanced team.

5. Finally I'd like to see Juventus fall flat on their face and be stuck with PP just for being so greedy! Media (lol! ) report that they are demanding £100m PLUS United pay agnt's fees.

Agree4 Disagree8

27 Jul 2016 10:20:50
1. JM wants Pogba over Matuidi so the only reason we would pull out of the Pogba deal is because Woodward doesn't agree with the price, that's not a JM decision
2. This so called doctor said he had no idea about a medical he was supposed to be conducting, confirming the Spanish papers to be nothing more than comic books spreading Spanish propaganda as per usual.

There has been an outline agreement for this deal since before the euros according to someone who works at a marketing company connected with United. Pogba is on board with moving to United. Juve are just holding out for as much cash as possible, that's all that's holding this up. If Real can sell to raise money then they might be able to join the fight (Pogba would prefer Madrid at this moment in time) but that seems unlikely at this point.

Agree4 Disagree1

27 Jul 2016 11:03:22
Does anyone else feel that the only real reason that is holding up the deal is that the player is still away on holidays.

We might not even know what the actual negotiations are on about. The fee, we might never know what we actually pay for Pogba, if we do sign him. All the 100-145M talk is in the papers. Yes, we are a bit desperate in the market and pay over the odds but still there are a lot of catches when it comes to Finances involved.

I have the money and want to drive a Ferrari, so I will buy one and not compromise on a Minardi just because that is cheaper and supposedly I can buy 3 of those. That is why Jose isn't looking at Kroos.

Agree5 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 11:14:50
Zzzzzzzzzzz 😪😪😪.

Agree2 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 11:42:55
Who is this Pogba guy anyway?

Agree3 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 12:15:29
never heard of pogba :) but why go for a player who wants to join madrid doesn't make sense.

Agree1 Disagree1

27 Jul 2016 12:50:30
My problem with this is that yet again we will waste time trying to get big name players all summer and end up failing and if we need him to complete the team jigsaw then we should go all out to get him.

Agree0 Disagree3

27 Jul 2016 13:46:44

The problem is that whatever happens the club can't win. A lot of people think the price is too high already, then ohter people think we should get this deal sorted straight away and get the player in. Obviously the club is trying to do this but there is a negotiation process that we have no idea about and no information on. The newspapers don't help with made up and twisted stories.

This morning, for example, Zidane said Pogba is a top player but that he wasn't discussing him as he isn't a Madrid player. The next minute I see headlines saying 'Zidane confirms Madrid are trying to do a deal for Pogba'. I read the quotes and no he didn't, but people will believe the headline.

Agree3 Disagree1

27 Jul 2016 16:58:32
The main problem is people believing as gospel what these click baiting journalists and media outlets are reporting. For all we know a deal may have been done days ago. Until we here from Pogba or Jose I wouldn't take any stock from the drivel reported.

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 11:29:48
The whole saga is boring me to death.
We should of done our business early and bought Kante and Miralem Pjanic snd still had change from 100 million.

Agree1 Disagree1

28 Jul 2016 13:11:49
Simmo we got 3 first teamsters in weeks ago. Are you real? The impatience of some fans is embarrassing!

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 13:58:54
This is the problem with early signings. Everyone then want more and more, wait and see how frustrated people will get when we have a boring deadline day.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 14:06:58
^^^ and these will be the same people who have previously slated us for not getting business done early enough.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2016 16:08:27
Wazza. i'm as real as they come.
I have no problem with the three signings made at such an early stage, it was good business.
My problem is paying fat cats like Mino Raiola 20 million pounds to sit on his fat arse and hold a club like our's to ransom. If your happy with that then good on ya!

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 13:21:37
Hasn't taken the papers long to jump on the Fellaini to Sunderland story. £13 million apparently, seems a bit steep.

Also interest in taking Januzaj on loan. If there is one young attacker I'd like to see kick on this term it's Pereira so getting Januzaj out the way would be a good move.

Add to this the impending Pogba announcement and potential deal for Fabinho we look in good shape. However, I'd still like one more centre back to replace Rojo and see Blind/ Schweinsteiger leave.

Believable13 Unbelievable4

26 Jul 2016 14:23:26
Schweinsteiger leaving over Blind would be better as he is older more injury prone and on vast wages. Although if he stays fit, the big if he could have an important season if utilised properly. That remains a big if.

Agree6 Disagree1

26 Jul 2016 16:24:08
schweinsteiger has been an utter turd signing when you consider what he contributed, minutes played and wages. Blind for me was one of our top 4 or 5 performers last year no matter how you look at and i am bewildered why people think we should sell him. Ridiculous.

Agree17 Disagree3

26 Jul 2016 17:00:12
Impending Pogba's announcement

Keep dreaming he's not coming and will end up at Madrid, he wouldn't keep stalling if he actually wanted to come.

Agree4 Disagree5

26 Jul 2016 17:18:46
If we're paying Sunderland 13 mill for them to take Fellaini then that is step.

I also agree on Blind, he's a versatile utility player. Every squad needs one.

Agree3 Disagree1

26 Jul 2016 19:51:57
I think Schweini was an expensive gamble that didn't work. His whole focus seemed to have been on getting fit for the Euros, he continued almost nothing last year.

Agree5 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 22:25:39
Why would anyone want to sell blind? Need a versatile player and he's our best one. And Pogba is far from imminent.

Agree4 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 17:19:44
I can see why Messi retired from International football. If Rojo plays at centre back for Argentina, then Messi will never win an International Trophy. Rojo is terrible.

Agree1 Disagree1

25 Jul 2016 21:49:06
Mourinho has already said that the last position he is looking for is a midfielder, Apart from 'he who shall not be named', what other players would the wise and not so wise on here consider?
How about the likes of Iborro from Seville.

Believable1 Unbelievable6

26 Jul 2016 06:19:43
Whoever it is, they must be they must be replacing schneidelin. Jose usually always has a Dm pogba isn't that. Carrick and schwein are so who else out there is a world class box to box? Hard to name one.

Agree0 Disagree6

26 Jul 2016 09:35:05
think he'll try for matic.

Agree3 Disagree4

26 Jul 2016 09:50:18
Carrick is not and never has been a dm. Nor is Bastian. Nor is Blind.

Agree5 Disagree9

26 Jul 2016 11:03:27
I totally disagree Mort. Esp with Carrick and Blind. Blind even played a few games in the "De jong" position for lvg at the WC.

Agree6 Disagree3


26 Jul 2016 12:07:48
Holding-Defensive mid - Carrick is the definition of that position.

Agree12 Disagree2

26 Jul 2016 12:18:35
There is no de-jong position. he's not good enough to have a position named after him lol.

Agree7 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 14:04:44
GATTUSO or Keane or Makelele would have been better alternatives to name that position after.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 15:04:49
Keane definitely wasn't a CDM. He was as box to box as they came! Unless you mean his final 2 seasons.

Agree10 Disagree0
