Talk sh1t report Jose agrees terms with Utd to become next manager. Quelle Surprise.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

24 May 2016 14:47:48
A quick question to any of the Ed's that are around, will MU's transfer targets now change following on from the change in manager?

Believable1 Unbelievable0

{Ed004's Note - If Mourinho has known he has been getting the job for awhile now I'm confident he will have specified the areas of the pitch we need to improve on and will have a list of potential signings}

24 May 2016 19:51:04
No mate, Mourinho will go with whoever LVG wanted.

Agree3 Disagree1

24 May 2016 23:55:31
So Ed do you think it was Jose or the club that pulled the plug in January?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed004's Note - The club because of the fans unrest}

24 May 2016 18:44:55
Mourihno should already have his buying list in his hand. Any idea who he might be bringing? Likes of james rodriguez, morata, varane, maybe?

Believable1 Unbelievable0

24 May 2016 19:02:47
Varane, william carvalho, lukaku and that brazilian kid gabriel would be really good.

Agree2 Disagree5

24 May 2016 19:08:35
Terry, Sneijder, Robben, Ibrahimovic and Cech if DDG leaves.

Agree2 Disagree1

{Ed007's Note - Didn't Gerrard say he was homesick the other day?}

24 May 2016 19:09:19
Much better out there than Lukaku.

Varane is a must though.

Agree2 Disagree1

24 May 2016 20:42:56
Varane, Zlatan and a fast wide attacking player like Mane?
I think with those 3 positions sorted we win the league!

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed091's Note - don't hold your breath over mane. }

24 May 2016 21:14:33
I agree and a class cm .

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 21:14:47
Like koke.

Agree2 Disagree0

24 May 2016 20:42:22
You glad with Buck Rodgers as your manager ED007?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed007's Note - I'm just delighted they didn't bring Neil Lennon back so I'll give Rodgers the benefit of the doubt and see how it goes. He seems a nice enough bloke and spoke well yesterday but it's a big step up for him and I hope he can handle it.}

25 May 2016 02:26:36

He is an outstanding manager with great character mate. I am sure the fans will love him. Opposition fans I mean.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed007's Note - We've not got any opposition! He's got a good chance to get some success under his belt and as a fan I'm obviously looking forward to it now the board are flexing their financial muscle as good as we can expect but I'm not doing naked star jumps in the street over Rodgers appointment. There's still some concerns about who's actually calling the shots on the footballing side of things like recruitment etc.}

25 May 2016 00:27:14
Varane/ Ibra surely are defo. can also see him signing a creative midfielder, personally would love to see Pogba back at OT but more likely to be somebody like Modric. finally a winger, would love to see Embolo or Witsel!

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 19:42:12
Just seen Woy Hodgson getting into a limo with a guy that looked a lot like Eddie Woodward and I swear the other guy was Robbie Savage, all with United scarves and big cheesy grins.

Believable1 Unbelievable8

24 May 2016 00:36:28
New manager and assistant?

Agree0 Disagree4

24 May 2016 13:03:27
Replying to your own rumour?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed023's Note - He probably forgot to add the "punch line" to the original post, well it's what I'd like to think anyway}

24 May 2016 15:13:07
He must be JMB with another new name :)

Agree1 Disagree1

24 May 2016 19:25:44
Lol Betty if I was JMB I would at least switch accounts before answering myself. Think it was just very late when I sent the op.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 21:25:50
Hi eds I know you will be busy tonight so will keep this short, is Jose the only contender or is there anybody else there considering. I hope its Jose, should of got the job when fergie went imo.

Believable2 Unbelievable1

{Ed025's Note - just jose mb..

23 May 2016 22:20:12
Cheers ed25 very exciting times ahead.

Agree1 Disagree1

24 May 2016 14:57:05

While I agree LVG had to go, I still don't agree Mourinho is the man to replace him.

Winning is not enough for Utd, and while the "anti-football" tag was an exageration, and his record with youth isn't ALL bad, I'm a long way from convinced that the football will be any more exciting than it was under LVG, or that players like Rashford, CBJ, TFM etc will make progress under him.

I do believe that he can rein-in his behaviour in front of the media though, which is the third area a lot of people have expressed concern.

It seems certain now that he will be our manager for the next few years, and I hope to be proven wrong about his style of football and youth policy, but I do wish the club would have looked more at other possibilities first.

Agree1 Disagree2

24 May 2016 17:30:44
Not sure why we didn't sign up for Pep, but Mourinho is as good as it gets.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 18:44:37
We didn't sign pep because he's under tested at a club that hasn't got 3/ 4 world class platers in it. Any of us could win the title with Barcelona or bayern in uncompetitive league's.

Agree3 Disagree0

23 May 2016 14:40:58
De Telegraaf reporting that Zlatan has signed. Any insight?

Believable3 Unbelievable1

23 May 2016 15:10:21
Not keen on Ibra. Lacks pace, doesn't offer enough outside the box BUT if it means Jose sees Rashford as first choice in 1-2 years time I think it could be a good signing.

Agree7 Disagree9

23 May 2016 15:23:13
He could be a huge signing for us if this is true, can't believe anything at the moment though, Jose making somebody his first signing before he has even signed himself!

Agree7 Disagree1

23 May 2016 15:52:23
To be fair Sheringham didn't have any pace but worked out well for us.

Agree5 Disagree0

23 May 2016 16:21:50
I think there is an over emphasise on pace these days. Particularly with central strikers who should be judged most on their positional and finishing abilities. Van Nistelrooj or Sheringham were both 'slow' by modern standards but still two of the best.

Agree12 Disagree2

23 May 2016 17:28:45
Zlatan is better than any player in our team, De Gea aside.

Agree8 Disagree1

23 May 2016 18:00:49
Can't wait for next season whatever happens.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 May 2016 19:31:09
Van nisterlooj was slow?
And you have to have pace as a striker. It's the difference between a kane and a wikham, and it's clear who anyone would pick if given the choice.

Agree4 Disagree6

23 May 2016 21:07:30
Teddy offered a lot more outside the box, linked up play, had fantastic vision and was unselfish. Not sure IBRA had those qualities.

I can see why we would be interested, he could be as good as Sheringham, or Larrson. maybe better and he wouldn't block Rashford or Martial becoming first choice CF for too long.

I'm still torn as to whether I want him or not. I suppose this is the problem if we only play one striker it limits the game time of Rashford and/ or Martial so signing someone like Morata could stall their progress for too long.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 07:51:06
Are we really questioning the quality of Ibra and what he will bring the team. Although I was initially against it because I would like to see Martial be given the CF role, having Ibra will bring a massive boost to all around. He is just class.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 09:22:20

Are you serious comparing him to sheringham and larson? He is world class go look at his assists numbers and maybe you should watch him more often. he has so much more in the bag than any of those guys had. He probably can hit a ball from 35 yards out better than anyone in our current team.

Some of the fans are truly confused, with all the rah rah of martial and Rashford, we scored 49 goals this year. Go check out the stats for the last 10 years for the PL and to be factor in the league you need to score 75 to 85 goals.

Explain to me how we will do that without adding a worldly striker upfront. the same fans will complain come next year when we struggle again to score goals that we should have bought a world class striker.

Rashford is 18 and way too early to burden him with scoring 20 to 25 goals a season.

Agree5 Disagree0

24 May 2016 10:03:05
53 games and 53 goals enough said really.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 17:34:39
First priority no doubt is the goal scoring ability. We need at least couple of players who can bag in 20 goals a season. So Ibrahimovic will be a better signing than any of our CF.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 21:05:32
Zlatan thru the middle with Martial and Rashford either side as a starting front 3 works for me!

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 11:46:17
BBC reporting Blacburn approach Warren Joyce to be their manager and the request is under consideration -whatever that means. huge blow if he goes - very important cog in the machine and I mean that as a huge compliment.

Believable10 Unbelievable0

23 May 2016 12:55:23
Joyce to Rovers, Giggs to replace Joyce?

Agree2 Disagree1

23 May 2016 13:16:41
I'd be surprised to see Giggs stay to be honest WRD. He really needs to fly the nest.

Agree4 Disagree0

23 May 2016 13:19:58
Id hate joyce to go but you raise a good point and I think it was mentioned on the banter page last week - would Giggs see it as such a big demotion that his ego couldn't accept it? or would he see it as a chance to pick players, plan ahead, tactics etc etc which would give him valuable experience . obvioulsy Joyce has caught the eye in the football world why couldn't Giggsy if he did a good job?

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 13:48:52
It would be a good job for Giggs; more hands on than an assistant. But I think he will see it as being beneath him.

Agree3 Disagree0

23 May 2016 14:15:45
If he sees mentoring, coaching and helping to improve young Manchester United players as beneath him then he will never be the right man for the top job.

It's the academy that helped make him, you could say he owes them a season or two of service as thanks. that's without even considering it as a stepping stone to further advance his managerial career.

Agree13 Disagree0

23 May 2016 15:53:35
I think it wouldn't be a bad thing to take the U21.
Zidane took the B team of Madrid before becoming the first team manager.

Agree2 Disagree0

23 May 2016 19:33:26
Giggs should take it if offered the job. It's where ole started and look at him now. I'd be surprised if he doesn't return to a club like derby or aston villa or rovers or something.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 22:12:21
Giggs to replace Joyce excuse me but this isn't a game on a PlayStation it's for real Gigi's knows guck all about coaching yet so we need to keep Joyce if anything I would promote him and give him a pay rise, we can't let rovers profit from this mess. Nor can we let carrick join a rival.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 May 2016 21:10:07
Surely Joyce is too smart to go to Blackburn, disaster of a club since the takeover.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 09:24:47
Giggs needs to go manage elsewhere and shake off the label of underserving and unqualified. If he succeeds elsewhere, there will be no arguments for him to take over someday at United.

The U21 and Real B are very different as the B liga in spain is a proper league.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 12:13:29
Let Nicky Butt do it, he deserves it more than Giggs and I think he would do a good job.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 10:04:24
LMA lawyer Paul Gilroy has arrived at carrington

Same lawyer who acted on David Moyes behalf apparently.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

23 May 2016 10:13:50
And denied access by security.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 10:15:29
oops, small mistake there. he arrived at 0930 to be denied entry, drove off, parked up (made a phone call? ) and returned at 0945 to be let straight in.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 11:12:39
Van Gaal, Stoltenberg and Frans Hoek are gone. Statement from the club at 1300.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 May 2016 11:20:58
Security might have said, "you're wearing trainers son, you're not coming in"

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 11:47:56
Or i have turned him away because he has a suspect bag in his car.

Agree2 Disagree0

23 May 2016 16:54:24
Maybe Tesco when ASDA are our Supermarket bag sponsor.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 17:43:39
Linked with a £30 million move for Krychowiak - excellent player, good on the ball and solid as a rock. Matic type of player that can actually use the football instead of recycle it. Wouldn't surprise me if this one is true as Jose looks for a solid base to the midfield to replace Carrick.

If it is true, I wonder where it leaves Schneiderlin.

Believable12 Unbelievable6

22 May 2016 17:58:23
I could not agree with you more Fresh. An excellent player who can run box to box all day long and tackles like a freight train with good technical skills on the ball. A definite upgrade on what we have.

Agree2 Disagree2

22 May 2016 20:06:43
Might explain why Carrivk hasn't been offered a new contract and might just see Schweinsteiger leave as well.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 20:22:11
Krychowiak, Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger and Herrera are four decent options I'd say. I expect Herrera will get a lot of game time unless someone like Kroos arrived.

Jim White has linked us heavily with Benatia too.

Agree6 Disagree2

22 May 2016 21:25:28
Joao Mario is also listed as a potential target. Do we know much about him? All I know he is right sided.

Agree1 Disagree1

22 May 2016 23:09:01
Stop killing my pogba dream!

Agree1 Disagree4

23 May 2016 00:19:57
Carrick is still one of the best centre mids in the league i'd keep him and let schweini go.

Agree4 Disagree13

23 May 2016 04:57:33
Carrick use to be one of the best, unfortunately them days are now catching up with him.
There's 10 or more better than him in the premier league.

Agree4 Disagree2

21 May 2016 21:31:55
Hi ed001 do you know if there is any substance to the breaking mourihno mews.

Believable2 Unbelievable1

{Ed001's Note - the club are about to sort out the managerial situation and there has been talks with Mendes over Mourinho. So there is a lot of truth. You would have to expect it to happen, as he is so keen on the job. Until he is being paraded by the club, you never really know for sure though.}

22 May 2016 10:13:52
Cheers ed it's difficult to see the truth through the media mud.
Whoever broke the story could have had better timing I almost felt sorry for lvg. almost.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 May 2016 13:52:09
If true. Mendes would surely have a lot of more influence within the club.

Agree0 Disagree5

22 May 2016 19:46:18
Is it possible that Mendes is trying to force woodward's hand? Woodward is known for dilly dallying, perhaps Mendes is making his decision up for him. If Mourinho wanted the job then wouldn't a big story which negated/ the fa cup win and in turn let Van Gaal know that United were looking for a replacement, back everyone into a corner where the only possible outcome was Mourinho becoming the United manager. The man earns his money, that's for sure.

Agree4 Disagree0

22 May 2016 23:10:22
Penfold, and that doesn't even take into account how many mendes players are going to be bought be Jose. Best job this summer is mendes banker.
