The thing that hurts the most watching us and the way we play is that if the shackles we're let go we could be blowing teams away in the first half of games.

Arsenals attacking players had the freedom to do what ever today yet every game this season our players have to stick to there job it's robotic.

We have players who can attack and create and score but all we seem to care about is stats and possession.

Maybe this is a wake up call needed because our next 3 games are very difficult and we could be looking at the most pivotal part of our season especially with cl games in between.

Martial tried to take people on and make something happen, but I expect that will stop when LVG has more to say to him. Look what has happened to Memphis - he was so direct in Holland, now he just comes inside like Young.

Just wanted to say, when we were interested in Pedro in the summer but baulked at his fee, which I thought was low, and he moved to Chelsea, I was very disappointed. I've watched him over the years at Barca and thought he's be a good addition to add pace to our attack.

We then signed Martial for an enormous fee, which, knowing little about him if I'm honest, I wasn't sure we were making the right choice. Fast forward a few months, Martial has been superb and will only improve. His strength, pace, finishing, running the channels after just 6 weeks with us is top draw.

In comparison Pedro has been bang average for Chelsea. I know Chelsea have been poor and Pedro might have had a better start to the season in our side. But I can only judge from what I've seen. And so far we made the right choice.

Trust the scouts I guess. I still think we're short of a CB and of like a packet forward for the right hand side, moving mata central, and Rooney to the bench. Also have to say, watching Sadio Mane this season he has been brilliant. Full of pace and trickery. He would have been another decent signing for our right hand side.

I'm feeling positive for tomorrow and I fancy us to win 2-1

I think we'll be back in for mane at some point. The next player to get a big move from Southampton

'Fast forward a few months'?! It's been just over 30 days!

However I do agree with your sentiments. Martial looks terrifying on the ball in a good way for us and bad way for defenders. I've never been inspired by someone younger than me but his manner is something that all footballers should look to. Cool, calm and completely professional.

And yes, so glad we didn't get Pedro. Did you see him give the ball away today?! Shocking!

Imagine a world where we trusted the scouts and the club to do the right thing and didn't get all angry on a forum before we have even seen any of the players play.

Remember that day we didn't sign pedro what the meltdown was like on here, I wish I could see some of them posts now and show them to people who overreact to every little thing that happens. People who lost the plot that day and went into meltdown must feel absolutely stupid now?

I didn't realise Mane was only 23. He still has a lot of development potential at that age and I suspect he will improve even more.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Oct 2015 12:56:57
I thought the other day we really need a RW, Mata does most damage when he cuts in more central and we lack running and trickery on that side. Mane would be the best option I think PL proven, shouldn't cost too much and is still young.

Just read a news Liverpool were very close to the signing of Juan Mata, with Kenny Dalglish made enquiries at his former club Valencia, who wanted a fee of around £15 million. But Kenny opted to sign the-Aston Villa midfielder Stewart Downing for £20 million instead. As u all know, the rest is history.

Really feeling bad for them. :-P But Thank You Liverpool for not signing the Chosen Juan.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

{Ed001's Note - that is not quite true. Liverpool were never close to signing him, there was an enquiry and he was interested in signing for Liverpool, but Comolli chose Downing on the stats, as he was to play on the wing. So you can think Inspector Clouseau.}

Good Morning Ed002,

I know January is still a few months away, but do you know if United will be active during the transfer window, especially losing a player to a long term injury? Or will LVG just try to cover the position with his adaptable squad?

If we are going to be actively looking for players, are you able to give us an idea of positions, and possible players?

Many Thanks

{Ed002's Note - They need to address the centre back situation, this was probably the real mistake of the summer. Starting out looking for one and possibly even two centre backs and getting nothing was probably disappointing for many. Hummels was the primary although unrealistic target. There was a simple obtainable solution with Garay and Kongolo that could have been completed very early on. Even as a last minute buy, the affordable Nkoulou was being touted around. The club will I am sure look to adding a centre back in January.}

29 Sep 2015 12:45:04
Thank you Ed, appreciate your time and info :)

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Sep 2015 12:50:03
I'd be happy with Kongolo. My top target would be Stones though. I think it would be excellent for us and England to have Smalling and Stones at the same club.

Great shout Wallace, mentioned him before. I would have loved van Dijk myself but fair play to him as I don't think he was willing to possibly just be a squad player.

28 Sep 2015 08:42:30
We are being linked again with Hakan Calhanoglu, according to Dutch source. I hope its true.

I reckon Rooney will lost his spot to him next year if he comes in. Make no mistake he is superstar in the making.

Believable0 Unbelievable2

{Ed002's Note - Don't hold your breath.}

28 Sep 2015 10:36:33
He looks really good, but I prefer Nabil Fekir for the No.10 role. He sees key passes quicker and is much more comfortable running with the ball.

Both will he excellent players but for me Fekir will be the better of the two.

Ed002 do we have any interest in Nabil Fekir? And who else has an interest in his future?

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - PSG, Arsenal, Inter and Manchester City have been showing an interest in Fekir. There is nothing to support interest from MU that I am aware of.}

28 Sep 2015 11:56:50
Thanks Ed002.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I should say he was very much first choice over the summer for Arsenal but signed a new contract. Lyon did not want to see both him and Lacazette go and in the end they have ended up with both staying, at least for the time being.}}

28 Sep 2015 14:05:41

Seen both but prefer Hakan. For me a he is the guy to go after if we are building a monster team.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2015 14:06:57

LOL Thanks and never do as the transfer market is so unpredictable and to many moving parts. We can all hope though :)

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2015 15:29:24
I like Hakan, but he looks a bit light weight for the Premier league at times. Obviously he'll develop as he gets older but if he is still at times getting bullied in the Bundesliga then maybe he needs another couple of years before he makes the move the the Premier League. He reminds me a little bit of Kagawa but with better technique but not as quick or with the same ability to beat players one on one.

I just prefer Fekir as he is stronger, faster and has the ability to beat a man one on one which for me makes his more suited to the Premier league, while also making him more flexible as he can play as a No.10 or on the wings.

Agree4 Disagree0

29 Sep 2015 07:10:11
fekir has a busted knee and i doubt we will see him in a United Shirt. I know he has publicly said he dreams of playing for us but it looks like he is now 2 years away from being considered. Most clubs will wait and give the player a year after an injury like his to see how he does before making a move. Remember that guy strootman, Thank heavens we did not go for him.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Sep 2015 08:33:32
True, much will depend on how he comes back from his injury. Strootman has never fully recovered, yet RvN managed to come back and had a great career.

Either way he is someone I expect we will keep a close eye on when he recovers.

Personally I don't think we should be looking at players who play in the No.10 role. I think we should prioritise a couple of CB's, a ST and a world class wide player long before we look at a No.10 after all we have Rooney, Mata, Fellaini and Herrera who can play there with Januzaj and Pereira coming through who can play there too.

Eds I heard that United have interest in Jose Gaya, any truth in there ed, United surely won't pay big money for another left back

Believable1 Unbelievable0

{Ed007's Note - It was Chelsea, City and Real Madrid that were 'battling it out' for Gaya last week, by process of elimination eventually they need to mention Utd to attract readers and hits.}

25 Sep 2015 21:49:37
Cheers ed

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed007's Note - No worries buddy, I really can't see why Utd would be remotely interested in him at that price when they already have Shaw and Tyler Blackett will come back next season as the best LB in the known universe. :)

25 Sep 2015 22:32:58
A good move for him,will he get much game time up there do u think ed,if ye can ed can you send him back as. Young Denis irwin

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed007's Note - He got a bit of a fright when he made his debut against Aberdeen the other week I don't think he realised how fast the game is played up here and the physical side of it, up at Pittodrie is always a battle no matter the score but since then he seems to have settled in and is doing well.
I can't promise a young Irwin (could anyone?) but Blackett will definitely come back a better player. For the first time in a long while I'm excited about what's going on at Celtic, once you look past Neil Lennon's chest thumping style it really wasn't very good and went drastically downhill after we beat Barca but I'm enjoying watching Ronny Deila's work and looking forward to the future under him.
You guys all like talking about LVG and his philosophy, well if you can be ar$ed here's a cracking lecture Ronny Deila gave.

26 Sep 2015 01:41:34
Very interesting, I think this guy will be around for years,
Just what good coaching and man management can do for a team of players, I think this guy could even manage balotelli.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed007's Note - As you can imagine he's like a breath of fresh air in Scottish football, we've had a couple of ups and downs but we seem to be moving in the right direction and building a solid base that will hopefully help us for years to come. #UntilRonnyIWasNeverHappy

26 Sep 2015 09:41:53
Bond is he playing left back or centre back?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed007's Note - He's played in both positions so far but his main job is to compete with Izaguirre for the LB slot, we've got plenty of CBs already.}

26 Sep 2015 11:11:37
Bond, will the position he plays for you guys be something agreed with Lvg. I am not sure his best position yet but if we see hI'm as a CB surely a season as a LB defeats the object of the loan.
I think he could have a good future and if LB is it having him and Shaw when he comes back would be great.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed007's Note - The agreement will be more about game time and gaining experience than the position he plays in. Don't get me wrong if he gets the chanceto play as a CB and playing well he'll get a chance there but with us signing Boyata and Jozo Simunovic along with the other CBs we already have his chances in there will be limited.
The problem that we have is that Izaguirre is weak defensively, he's fantastic going forward which suits us in a lot of domestic matches where we're attacking the majority of the time but when we need a defensive minded LB we're left wanting and following Izaguirre's red card in Amsterdam in the 2-2 EL draw with Ajax Blackett will hopefully be playing in the EL for us against Fenerbahce on Thursday so he should be starting today to get him ready for that - the other option we have at LB is our Mr Utility Charlie Mulgrew and that's not even worth contemplating.}

Barkley had another good game. He's looking like the player he promised to be 8 games 3 goals 4 assists with an 86% pass completion rate, all very good for a 21 year old. I would love to see both him and Stones come in. Stones has an 88.9% pass complete rate and has really upped his defensive contribution per game on last year, I would say he's perfect for our style of play.

Another player who I like a lot and feel fits the LVG passing game is Aymeric Laporte, his passing stats are lover than Stones' but he has contributed substantially more defensively. A left footed composed CB an ideal long term solution.

I'm hoping to see more of Goss this year, hopefully he lives up to the new Carrick title. He looks a tidy player with a great left peg, I've not seen a great deal of him but from match reports and bits in the press it sounds like he dictates play very well and puts in his share on the defensive side.

I Still think we need a right winger ,Berardi would be my first choice as he's a proven goal scorer and again fits with LVG's multifunctional player preference (he also can play 10, 11 and 9). Having his international team mate on the same flack can't be a bad thing either.

I don't think we'll see a striker come in if Martial continues his current form, I think LVG will use Wilson plus Memphis, Janazi and whoever we bring in for the right wing to cover.

Looking slightly further down the line Reece Oxford looks a great prospect, should Goss reach his potential an ideal foil for him being right footed.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

24 Sep 2015 12:57:09
Oxford looks decent but would even dare try buy him now, need to wait a long time before we can see if he'd be UTD standard.

I'd have Stones before Barkley at the moment as well.

24 Sep 2015 13:19:05
Agree with everything but beradi

24 Sep 2015 14:05:09
I'd have Barkley and Stones for sure. The thing that I like about English talent is that they won't run home after a year or two. There is no where higher to go than Manchester United.

Agree5 Disagree0

24 Sep 2015 14:18:23
Hi Mort, who's your pick for right wing?

Reece Oxford would certainly be someone to target in a few years. Hopefully , Goss can replace Carrick and in 3-4 years Oxford could replace/back up an ageing Schweinsteiger (would be nice to have a British midfield).

If we got anything like what I described above, whoever replaces LVG would inherit a very talented squad that could form the foundation for a decade, allowing any changes to the youth set up time to deliver.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Sep 2015 14:22:14
Fresh I agree, when we sign British players we tend to be able to keep them. Plus it's nice to see British lads pulling on the shirt.
