Anybody else think that signing Anautovic from West Ham makes sense?

Dont get me wrong, he is by no way my first choice for the right wing, but he is quick, powerful, has a good touch and can cover as a striker if Lukaku is suspended or injured. More importantly he can cross a ball as well.

I like mata as a person and as a number 10, but I hate him on the right side of midfield. He is being set up to fail. He is not quick enough and is too easily beaten in the physical battles.

For me Anautovic makes sense in terms of improving the squad balance.

I would take Anautovic over Manzukic any day of the week.

A player of his ability to be back up is a viable idea, a player of his personality to be back up is not.

if we want to be winning titles and cups. players like anautovic are not the players we should be signing.

he is a mid table team player.

If u want a striker maybe go for someone like djeko. I don't think he would be that expemsive if we can't get hold of Lewandowksi.

Honestly have never seen arnautovic play right wing. Always seems to play on the left or in the middle just like sanchez martial and rashford.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 May 2018 12:50:11
Singh I get what you are saying, but if you don’t have anybody who can cross a ball then having Dzeko is pointless.

I am looking at it from an evolution of the squad perspective rather than revolution perspective. Arnautovic offers cover for a season or two until Chong is ready to step up. Arnautovic and peirrera can rotate on the right.

I would like a Leon bailey on the right, but we clearly have a budget for this summer and I am looking at who can see us move forward and give us scope to buy a lb, a rb a cab and the two MF we need. We are not going to spend £500m, so let’s be realistic.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2018 13:04:47
With McKenna coming to the first team, surely we will bring 2 players on from the under 18s.
Another player that looks good is Greenwood though he is only 16 or 17 is supposed to be the best young player around the academy.

Agree2 0Disagree

25 May 2018 13:56:41
I hope you are right Leahy. I really want the club to get back to the days of bringing through the youth, going out and buying the players we have not heard of, the schmeichels, the solskjaers, the Evras, the vidic’s, the ronaldo’s and Then addeding the super star, I. e. the Rooney, the Rio, the tevez.

It was the unpolished gems I did not know about that got me excited. This galactico ethos leaves me a little cold.

I would love a de litt from Ajax, or a max phillipe for lb, or a Kai havertz for Mf or a andraj zivkovic for the wing. A tuanze.

Agree2 0Disagree

25 May 2018 14:02:00
A Tuanzabe a TFM and a peirrera in the first team, and so what if they are not great and need to grow. Dave the save was not world class at first and look how that’s worked out.

Agree2 0Disagree

25 May 2018 14:21:17
Leahy

Greenwood is supposed to be exceptional, I think it’s him who can take corners and penalties with either foot. Has to get the mental side right.

Short term strikers, would Vardy be an option perhaps?

Agree1 1Disagree

25 May 2018 14:40:39
That's right red man he can use both feet,
I often think what age is too young,
Surely at 18 your a man and should be bought in and around the first team, a lot of people say that's too young.
But look at what Hansen said you win nothing with kids.
Then look at Ryan giggs at 17 running through experienced players like they weren't there.
Have to give them a chance to see how they will cope.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 May 2018 14:41:30
Anautovic in martial out?
Sounds very Jose.

Agree2 4Disagree

25 May 2018 14:49:53
Leahy you need a long term not short term plan to get the kids in the team .
At the moment 1 bad half and they are straight out .
If you read above people would rather have a 30 year back up striker than give rash more opportunities to progress.

Agree2 0Disagree

25 May 2018 15:16:53
The last thing we need is another striker forced to play on the left. We have two of those already, Arnautovic isn't better than any of them.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2018 15:19:01
What's the issue with Arnautovics personality? Only seen him when we've played against Stoke or West Spam or on the highlights. Always looked to have something. Looked to be too good for Stoke and that he should be at a level above them.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2018 15:23:42
anoutavic always strikes me as being a millisecond from punching someones lights out or raking his studs down someone. Nasty attitude.

Greenwood just turned 16 Leahy!

Would rather give rash and martial a chance than buy arnautovic. Very short termism if that is an option. I really like Mandzukic think he is a very good player. But again would rather see the youngsters developed.

Redman great shout on Vardy. I really like him and he has the tenacity and desire Jose expects of his players. Good goal scorer as well with 20 premier league goals this year.

Agree0 1Disagree

25 May 2018 15:46:13
If mourinho signs arnautovic then he should be sacked the minute the signing takes place. Arnautovic is lazy, gives the ball away a lot, also capable of some brilliant stuff from time to time but very inconsistent, now remind me if we do not already have a young player who fits the description, and incidentally from what minutes he gets, we can all assume jose isn't much of a fan of that.

Agree2 0Disagree

25 May 2018 15:48:41

Agree with you about Arnautovic CS Moyes. He is very inconsistent and the more he gives the ball away, which is a lot, the more wound up he gets and starts blaming everybody else.
He also strikes me as someone who might be a bit of a negative voice in the dressing room. I don't think we need that at the moment.
To be honest, I don't see any truth in the rumour or Mandzukic really. Seems a bit bizarre to me.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 May 2018 17:36:00
Big fan of Arnautovic but hadn’t considered him a Utd player.
Dzeko too. He’d be a great option for Spurs in the event of a Kane injury.

He does remind me of Ibra. We all said we wish we had Ibra 10 years earlier so why not . The wig is going and he does tick the plan b box . Martial I'm afraid will be used to land another player from Spurs I think so we need another striker. 😆😆.

Reading some of the posts on this longstanding forum in the last few years is hard. In a forum your going to get different views and debate which can sometimes get heated which is fine and also a good read and helps see other fellow fans views. It's the "Toxic" side that is hard to read. I see as more spoilt than toxic the way some posts are so dismissive of potential targets but more so of "deadwood" players that have given us pivotal moments in Utd shirts that contributed to success for our club. So to just say get rid of the deadwood is harsh. To demand Jose buys to build for a future and then say if he doesn't win something this season he's finished is daft. The whole he buys elder players n shoves youth out reteric is nonsense rash Jesse mctom haven't been pushed out. Rom pog Bailey linderloff miki are all young so that can't b used against him. Give him until his contract runs out. The eds have done that good job from the days b4 individual club sites to the vast informative broad beast it is now that it's got way more traffic but it's definitely not as fun knowing one of the eds is not enjoying contributing there knowledge to his/ her (all the eds) site because a few spoilt 21st century goons decide to use this site like they do Twitter and just abuse the eds but more so to just be "toxic" with there views. So just chat debate n post rumours no matter how vague or far fetched they are. It's this time of year we need all the eds on board.

Agree0 4Disagree

25 May 2018 12:20:15
I don't buy the 'spoilt' line. We have spent a fortune, have immense resources yet deliver turgid football.

We all want the team to do well and to be entertained, just because we provided a great service previously it doesn't mean we should accept anything now - especially as there is no logical reason for the performances to be so poor to watch.

Nobody expects us to win every game playing incredible football, but consistently being awful to watch is going to grind gears. You go for a nice meal, you will go back there again, if the service slips you will give it a while then maybe you will start asking questions if there is no sign of improvement or simply stop going! Unlike restaurants we only have one team (or should have), so we are held over a barrel with our support - that support is abused because the manager should have 'entertaining/ attacking football' as a key KPI as a manager of our club. He clearly doesn't have that remit so it's all about money, which is not what people support Utd for.

This is a website to discuss the good, bad, ugly and whenever we do actually play well you see nothing but praise on this website - it's just you can count on one hand how many times we performed to the level expected, (or even close to it) last season.

So not spoilt - disappointed is more appropriate and constructively critical for the most part! And justifiably to, any other team wasting the talent and money we have had would have their fans getting angry as well, a lot sooner than ours have started to turn I feel - despite the stark contrast between now and before.

Agree9 1Disagree

25 May 2018 12:57:38
That’s a really good post beast. Perhaps I am a glass half full sort of person so I think the new signings will really take us up a level.

Agree2 0Disagree

25 May 2018 15:56:47
Utd the toxic side you mention doesn't per se exist, there are fans on both sides of the mourinho argument that have issues with certain players and there is nothing wrong with it, calling someone deadwood might be a bit unfair but if you are not doing well given what you earn you are going to get backlash.

Also in what world are 24, 25 and 27 yr olds young. Lukaku, Pogba, jesse and especially mkhi can not be considered young. Rashford, mctominay and martial are young and just google when was the last time either of those started 2 consecutive games and then tell me mourinho doesn't like kids is a fallacy.

Agree3 1Disagree

25 May 2018 19:27:21
United99. You're fully entitled to your views. But to call anyone who disagrees with the way the club is run and Mourinho's tactics and treatment of players as "toxic" is really pathetic and you're trying to be so PC. what's wrong with critisizing someone if you can see major fault in their systems? Or shall we all shut up and just go along with the flow even though we've won no trophies, performed shambolically in matches against the lesser teams, lost out to a below average Seville team, lost without a fight against Chelsea in the FA cup, seen our manager berate and demean players publically and create a terrible atmosphere within the club. Oh yeah, we're the "toxic" ones, but mourinho is all nice.
And your post mentioned 21st century supporters, that made me laugh at the shear deluded nature of your post. Many of us have been supporting United for over 50 years, which is long enough to know right from wrong.

I'm just going to sit back and wait and not read that rubbish a anymore,

Hi Guys

Just to guage your opinions. Who would you prefer out of Fred and Savic. I've not seen either at great length so I can't really say although my gut feeling says savic.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2018 11:25:19
Savic for me. But I think we need both because if one of our midfield gets injured we are relying on Herrera and mctominay. City have gundogan to come in as replacement and they are also looking to add Jorginho as well. That is some great strength in depth. I would like to see matic get rested more next year and rotated with Herrera to make sure he remains fresh. I’m glad to see we are adding to the midfield but will reserve judgement to when I see us play because it depends how Jose sets us up.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2018 11:55:06
we need at least 2 or even 3 centre mids

we have pogba matic herrera and mctom.

fellini off, carrick retired.

we lack any depth.

to win titles and cup competitions you need a big squad. its also good for competition to keep everyone on there toes.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2018 12:00:02
It looks like Fred is on the cards .
Do people think if Jose can't get fellaini to sign he is going to go out and pay a 100 mil on savic to replace him .

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2018 12:27:46
signing fred would not be enough in the centre.

even if the wig signs a new contract we need another center mid.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2018 12:56:12
Jose played 4231 for about 70% of games last sèason .
He tends to stick with players so I expect matic to play most games again as well as pogba.
So not really that many places up for grab.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2018 16:15:49
I think we should sign both then we have a choice from six decent and different midfielders. Perhaps Then Matic might get a rest because Jose will have alternatives he can trust.

Slighty surprised if the rumours of the deal for Fred being agreed today are true. He’s a CM/ DM and very short. Doesn’t sound like a Jose signing at all. Maybe he really is planning to add a few Brazilians to the line up. Fred, Sandro, Willian and I read something about Douglas Costa today also.

Not thrilled at all by the links with Mandzukic or Arnautovic. Any of those two would be shocking business. I hope we steer well clear.

Agree4 1Disagree

24 May 2018 14:52:45
I'd take Mandzukic in a heartbeat.

Agree3 3Disagree

24 May 2018 15:22:33
Claude Makelele was an inch smaller then Fred and was pivotal to Mourinho's early success at Chelsea, calling him 'Player of the Season' in his first year in charge so Jose does actually value other things then height in players.

One of those qualities is energy and Athletisism and Fred has plenty of that. I think there was a stat saying we were one of the bottom clubs for sprints and distance covered in the league. Fred is a proper box-to-box dynamo of a midfielder and might be the answer to that. Hope we sign him tbh.

24 May 2018 15:44:34
Sounds like a Brazilian Kante.

Could be great as long as he don't have the anderson eating gene!

I know its not top trumps but Douglas Costa 40m, Sandro 45-50m

Guys just sharing my thoughts.

What if we had promoted from within like. liverpool in the 70s and 80s.

What if Carlos Q was given the promise to take over the rein from Sir alex. I get the feeling from reading excerpts that little to no effort was made to sway Carlos mind from leaving in 08.

The board should have planned. By o8 Sir was in his mid 60s.

Would we be in a better position if Carlos had taken over in 2013 after close to 9 season as an asst where in e layer yrs he could have significant say in transfer dealings, playing philosophy, youth set up, coaching team.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 May 2018 13:51:47
Nothing he has done since leaving us suggests that he is anywhere near capable of being a successful football manager.

Agree2 0Disagree

24 May 2018 13:58:34
Replacing Fergy was always going to an impossible task imo .
We were always going to take a hit .
In the 5 season since he has left we have won 3 cups and just finished second in the league .
So maybe it's not been as bad as some make out, a lot of fans will of only gone through the fergy years it's not always like that tho.

Agree4 2Disagree

24 May 2018 17:01:49
Spot on jred. The top table of football clubs has gotten bigger and there are only few trophies to win every year. Going through a tough couple of years and a big squad upheaval, we've done OK in terms of winning cups.

Opposition fans were predicting decades of turmoil after Sir Alex left. It hasn't been the case. It certainly hasn't been smooth but we're on the up and up, it's just a shame some fans would rather us implode just so they could say I told you so!

Agree2 1Disagree

Also says the deal for savic has stalled as we don't agree wth lazios asking price.

Makes sense to get in fred at a cheaper deal to play alongside matic and pogba in a three in midfield.

No thanks on mandzukic and arnautovic though.

Agree4 0Disagree

24 May 2018 12:40:49
Of course we do, we need a 30+ year old striker to play back up to Lukaku or maybe even replace him in the line up. God forbid giving Rashford or Martial a chance.

Rash and Martial are totally different players to Mandzukic! He is a hold up striker with great physicality! Everyone defends deep against us hence why Rash and Yony M are predominantly used on the flanks and not up top.

Shappy to you truly believe Jose has not given Rashford and Martial ‘a’ chance? Or like some do you believe they have fluffed their lines on a number of occasions. I’m not saying sell them, but I think some non-emotional Jose slamming perspective is needed?

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2018 16:55:27
So Ed002 isn't commenting anymore but if you look at the post he did on player interest a few weeks ago he mentioned that Fred was an alternative to Kroos who the club didn't want and SMS who was far too expensive and priced out of a move, that is where you are best getting your information from, spot on as ever it seems.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2018 13:05:53
Id take him to play wide right as some have suggested and as a more physical presence too. I'd prefer Martial and Rashford (in that order) to him but I might chop in Mata (despite the fact I genuinely love him) at this stage as his effectiveness is on the wane.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2018 11:38:10
Think significant mistakes were committed 09-13.

1. Investments were not at Citys level. Tevez, Ronaldo left and our signings post that read Obertan, valencia ( not a world beater but a consistent performer), a past it owen, Powell, Bebe

City were raiding balotelli, silva, toure, Aguero, De jong.

We needed to fix the central midfield and wing position. We failed. We needed at least one ready made world class centre back to take over rio and vida, we kept our faith in Smalling and jones. Dissapoitment.

2. The appointment of Moyes.
After Sir alex stepped down we should have appointed A manager with much stronger credentials . Jose would have made sense then. 2013-2014 season ripped the soul of the club. It set a precedence. The fear factor slowly diminished.

3. Van gaal was stop gap. I still think he should have tried his best to keep the likes of Welbz, Rafael, Chicarito, Evans who. could be useful squad players.
During sir alex tenure we had park, o shea, fletch who played the role.

My point is the problem started way back with no clear long term plan who should replace Sir Alex and little investment pre. 2013.

Should we now call for Jose to be sack?

If he goes who takes over? Giggsy?
Blanc? Carlos Quiroz? Poch?


My personal view would be back him for 2 more seasons with transfers in out. Let him do his job. by then he would have 4 seasons.

Would love to hear other reds opinion.

Agree5 6Disagree

24 May 2018 12:40:01
Good post mate. Agree with the lack of investment over the years I remember us crying out for a midfielder in fergie’s era with Dembele being someone we should have snapped up when he left Fulham. We were linked to the likes of defour, strootman and others but never sorted out the midfield. Shows how sir alex did such an incredible job of winning the league with a poor team.

Moyes was a disaster plain and simple. Should never ever have been considered and him sacking the back room staff sealed his fate. He undid 25 years of work in the space of 7 months. Awful awful appointment which set us back years. Then LVG was in theory a safe appointment but didn’t pan out well. We have thrown money at clubs by overpaying for average players who don’t have the mentality to play for us. There has been no plan or cohesion in the transfer policy. No direction in where the club needs to be. We have Woodward who although is a great negotiator, seems to be the sort of person who wants to make a statement signing which sells shirts instead of one that improves the team.

Now we appoint Jose. Personally he should have been considered after sir alex left. Would have been the perfect time. He is a great manager, one of the best, but that does not necessarily translate to a successful or appropriate fit for us and him. An air of marriage of convenience is evident. However, all things said and done, the improvement statistically is plain to see. He’s attracting quality players and we are back in the champions league for a second season in a row for the first time in years. Style is very poor and his man management is not working with certain players. He needs to improve there. But he deserves another year to sustain a challenge and if it is going poorly then he should leave. I don’t buy into the notion he will leave a mess at united. He inherited a huge mess but he will leave a very talented squad for the next manager to enjoy the fruition. Back him for another year but plan accordingly.

The board need to take a leaf out of arsenal’s Book and admire the way they have stuck to their values and traditions as a football club. They play a beautiful brand of football and have appointed a manager who will carry this on. United must respect our traditions and it should dictate how we run the club and who we appoint. If the board can do that then I feel things will improve. Personally I am looking forward to next season and I expect to see improvements.

Am guessing you are new so welcome. I recognise and and have flagged those very issues time and time again so agree with you.

However you will now be answered with the can’t blame that, blame Jose he spent money argument. Enjoy and stick to what you said because it is where we are.

I would give Jose next season and see where we are.

I'm OK with smalling and Jones being expected to be our long term centre backs. We bought them at 19 and 20 yrs old (ish) and they were supposed to be our centre back partnership for years to come. I like the idea of buying to young kids full of potential and nurturing them together to be the spine of our club for the next decade. Sadly, it hasn't worked out. But I'm OK that we gave it a good shot.

Hi United Roses

Keep on posting your opinion and don’t be put off. There are a lot of good posters on here so add your contribution

I am from Manchester, started supporting in 68 and I was stood on the Wembley terraces in the 85 cup final, a great day.

Looks like we have signed Fred then 🤔.

To play alongside Pogba or replace him? 🤔.

Happy with that signing as long as it’s not instead of us going for SMS. He’s the one I’d be really disappointed to miss out on. Are they similar players? Don’t know much about Fred to be honest.

If we get savic from lazio as well as fred then most certainly pogba will leave.

Maybe Herrera is off?

Mou said he will sign 2CMs if Fellaini leaves. It looks like he will leave.

Good signing. Has an eye for the forward pass and has the energy and tackling we are lacking in midfield. Really hope we sign savic as well. But I agree if he comes looks like pogba will be off. Not sure if I would be happy with that. But at this moment in time I would rate savic slightly more than pogba.

Sanchez a dwarf and now Fred the red at 5 foot 6. Maybe Pep has convinced Jose you don’t need a team built like Rugby league players for success.

midfield 3 of savic. matic and pogba? Looks good.

We are linked with Lorenzo Pellegrini from Roma as an alternative of Savic as Utd see the price quoted by Lazio to be too high.

Me neither jred actually don't think I've seen him play so dunno wether to be pleased or not.

I would imagine we will sign 2 midfielder this sume with only carrick and felliaini leaving . I just can't see the club sanctioning the sale of pogba yet .

Agree1 0Disagree

24 May 2018 13:00:43
Danny
Nope, but I'm sure he is just what we need .
I think I watched him against city and he had a good game, if it's the same player i'm thinking off.

I think Jose wants both and Pogba to stay, the thinking being if a player is injured or suspended or in poor form then the drop down in quality is not catastrophic.

Compare our depth to City's in terms of true quality and that more than anything is where we are lacking. So a midfield of Pogba, Matic, Savic, Fred, Herrara, Mctominay look well stocked to cover even the worst injury crisis and allow us to change our tactics to suit the opposition. I would expect Fred to play against City as he is more mobile than some others for example.

More good players gives us more options from the start and off the bench.

more competition for places should promote higher levels of performance from players to win that starting berth. City have that in abundance and this means their players step up there game knowing that their place is not safe.

Cue, Fred is the best thing since sliced bread posts. Until we don't sign him, and we find out he wasnt really that good anyway.

Wait until we find out it’s the other Fred.
