been reading the posts below my gripe is wiggy dose not want to be hear and should not be anywhere near the first team. he took the place of a young lad who played well Saturday and his living his dream.

{Ed033's Note - What? wiggy's got a dose and can't hear? :)

Agree4 Disagree1

Deaf as a post Wiggy is. Someone’s had a beer.

14 Mar 2018 08:31:32
Fellaini isn't a great player but the tie was lost in Spain when Fellaini wasn't even there.

Gambling on a 0-0 draw away is a dangerous game. The advantage of playing the away leg first is supposed to be that you can go all out for away goals and even if you lose bringing back one or more away goals means your still well in the tie.

If we had a couple of away goals then I am confident we would be in the last 8 right now.

15 Mar 2018 17:17:27
Away tie aside. The performance on Tuesday was the real issue.

Hi Eds,

Is Ghoulam a player Utd are looking at? I think he would be fantastic for us - very athletic, reads the game well and great at providing width and creativity down the left that we've lacked, at times, this season.

Thanks in advance.

{Ed004's Note - I don't think so anymore. Not after he dislocated his knee returning from a cruciate injury. One signing, I don't know if it's been discussed or not, would possibly be Bellerin (I've no sources just saw rumours he might be available). I think Jose could make him into a very solid player. Think the potential is there but maybe not worth the money}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Mar 2018 19:53:26
Thanks Ed - interesting shout. I really think with a couple of new full backs we'd see a big improvement in the balance and solidity of the team, both offensively and defensively.


{Ed004's Note - I think everyone on the site agrees with that}

14 Mar 2018 08:16:12
Not everyone ed004 there is still at least 1 with his head buried in the sand😂😂.

15 Mar 2018 16:25:30
Smalling - out
Jones - out

New defensive pairing needed!

10 Mar 2018 22:33:43
have to laugh on the scouse page they could have had 5 pens. the ref was on there side the better team lost. joses ghastly tactics. i think jose just showed kliperty clown a lesson in each half how to score and how to defend. i do not remember dave the save having to make any.

Agree15 Disagree1

10 Mar 2018 22:52:36
ment to say how to score against a good defense.

11 Mar 2018 14:02:31
They didn't have a shot on target second half. If it wasn't for the own. goal they wouldn't have been in it.

12 Mar 2018 03:19:35
If Mata scored in the first half, Liverpool would look like idiots coming into the 2nd half.

12 Mar 2018 10:02:41
Let them have their delusion. It'll mean they will never focus on the real issues. We on the other hand find fault in everything, openly, and this is why we will always have higher standards/ success.

14 Mar 2018 00:01:14
Roonbest61. Be careful about what you wish for.

09 Mar 2018 21:41:40
Rumour is no pogba tomorrow?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2018 22:05:31
Seen that jred. Would be disastrous if that is the case. He is the only player who can link us from defence to attack. A midfield of McTominay matic and Fellaini/ Carrick is very uninspiring. Let’s see if it is true could be mind games from Jose.

09 Mar 2018 22:49:19
I'm Pogba's biggest fan but even I have to admit he's been really poor since the Spurs defeat.

I feel almost stupid saying this but could it be a blessing in disguise?
Nah who am I kidding?!

On the other hand It may just allow Jose to pick his preferred formation of 4-2-3-1 safe in the knowledge that the two midfielders will hold their position and not vacate the midfield leaving us vulnerable to the counter attack.

If Pogba is injured I'd be tempted to play Carrick (big ask I know) next to Matic, with Martial left (if fit) Sanchez behind Lukaku and Mata on the right.

Carrick is positionally astute and very good on the ball. He's brilliant at feeding passes into the forwards and will bring calmness, maturity and experience . My worry is he's struggled in the past when pressed quickly and we might end up getting over run in midfield. I thought Mctominay struggled in midweek and maybe he just needs a break after a very encouraging start to his career.

I think without Pogba we can't really deploy a three man midfield and I'd rather see an extra attacker than Fellaini coming in to replace Pogba.

Mata came on last week and knitted things together nicely and with Martial and Sanchez supporting Lukaku with the security of two holding midfielders we could potentially see the best of our attacking quartet.

Liverpool will play their usual game pressing high so in theory our attackers should have more space if we can beat their press. If Carrick can thread balls into Sanchez and Lukaku we could be in business. Maybe?!

09 Mar 2018 23:20:38
Just read Martial is out as well!

10 Mar 2018 09:10:28
Even though pogba has been poor of late Danny, without him in the team there is nobody can pick the ball up from midfield and drive us forwards. Yes Carrick’s passing is very good and he can pick out a pass, but with him and matic there is a serious lack of legs and mobility. I would be tempted to put mata in at 10 if pogba is out as he is the only other person who can play the sort of passes pogba can. I’m very nervous for this game and hearing about pogba has made those nerves ten times worse! Let’s see what Jose has up his sleeve.

10 Mar 2018 11:05:26
MEN reckon he's definitely out. For me Pogba has generally disappointed in these big games but there is nothing like his potential quality in any other midfielder to get hold of the ball and do something. Matic carras mctom possibly fellaini screams out as a flat and basic midfield, lacking pace and legs. Strangely enough matic would be the best out of those to take the ball forwards.

We should seriously consider going 3 at the back now as we have to go wide in this game.

Confidence levels are pretty low but that's often been when we've pulled out a result against that mob! Come on United.

10 Mar 2018 17:57:54

Good to read something afterwards that was clearly from a very knowledgable place, some of your posts on here are brilliant mate, you were right about the 4-2-3-1 without Pogba and Mata did the job you suggested he would.

10 Mar 2018 21:45:43

Thanks mate, so glad we won today but I'm worried about Tuesday night I think it's a really tricky game.

11 Mar 2018 20:45:31
Yeah great post Danny. always very consistent and as knowledgeable as any poster on here. Great read after the fact.

08 Mar 2018 17:38:32
Is there any substance to these doucoure of watford rumours? i'm guessing 2 cm's will have to be the priority for united.

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Mar 2018 11:34:41
A few 'would you rather' posts popping up, mostly to do with playing well but losing or playing badly but winning.

How can you play badly and win trophies? it just doesn’t happen. I used to love the contrasting styles of Italy and Brazil in World Cups.

Why doesn’t anyone give any credit to playing defensively and solidly anymore? It’s not easy to organise teams and there is definitely an art form to playing that way, granted it might not be as exciting to watch. Mayweather will go down as one of the greatest boxers of all time but he was really boring to watch, he just didn’t get hit.

If everyone adopted the same style playing football then ultimately that would become boring too, I love all the styles and appreciate them for what we are. Long ball tactics, rough and tumble, tikka takka, ultimate football, park the bus, counter attack etc.

I guess as a united fan, do miss the style we used to play, but it was never like the current city side for example, one we seem to want to emulate now. we had a style of our own and that’s the beauty of football .

Agree12 Disagree0

08 Mar 2018 12:43:16
Great post mate.

08 Mar 2018 14:31:04
Great post last man.

08 Mar 2018 14:44:05
Well said LSMA.
At the end Of the day, people remember winners and not too much of those who play well and beautiful. Hence yeah to a certain extent I’d rather we win and be boring than be like scousers playing beautiful and not win anything for years. Of course if we can play beautiful and yet win that’ll be ultimate. 😉.

08 Mar 2018 15:44:10
Imagine if you won and played well tho.

08 Mar 2018 23:48:54
We're not that great defensively. 3 holding midfielders and an unbelievable goalkeeper have papered over the cracks. Also the frustration is that we have top notch attacking players but the lack of a constructive approach means we have reverted to a damage limitation exercise while hoping for individual brilliance to bail us out. Meanwhile spurs and liverpool are getting similar results but play a much better brand of football. My hope is that the glaring issues with our defence and CM are addressed this summer and Mourinho adopts a better approach, but I'm not sure how realistic that is.

09 Mar 2018 02:12:23
Always imagining Jred.
Bur ball is round so also depends on who we playing. I am quite sure most logical supporters would want win before beautiful football. That said, I’d not want to become a scousers supporter having not won anything for so long than be a ManUtd supporter having won silverware last season. So what if it is Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck trophy? I’d rather that than an empty season shelf.
But yes if we win and also beautiful, like I said it would be the ultimate.

07 Mar 2018 21:47:00
Ed, hope you don't mind me asking, a while ago you suggested that Milinkovic Savic was a primary target for United, just wondering if this is still the case? Thanks in advance.

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Mar 2018 23:23:09
Ed 001 isn't his agent ( name escapes me) a fomer player for jose at chelsea. Striker i think. Maybe that will help😂😂😂.

{Ed001's Note - Kezman yes.}

08 Mar 2018 19:15:47
Thats the chap ed001 thanks. I'm not sure if his relationship with jose is an advantage or not.
Ive watched him a lot this season ed. He is strong and very technically gifted he makes great runs off the ball and arrives at the right time to score goals a bit like lampard. His attitude is great he looks pretty unflappable and he doesn't get embroiled in a lot of the nonsense you see like eolling around or diving or chasing the ref. Passing range is great and reads the game like a seasoned pro.
Looks a bit one paced at times and with matic and pogba also not that quick that would concern me a little. But someone is going to get a great player. Madrid or ourselves probably.

{Ed001's Note - he is very good ken, one of the best prospects around. Scholes was one-paced, never stopped him being a great player. The first few yards are in the head as they say.}

09 Mar 2018 07:33:22
I agree with that ed but having all 3 in midfield without a turn of pace is not ideal.

{Ed001's Note - shouldn't matter if they are good enough mate. Barca's trio have never had a turn of pace in there.}

09 Mar 2018 12:21:13
How did his brother leave us Ed, was it amicably or otherwise? That might have some impact on wether he would join or not.

{Ed001's Note - amicably and speaks highly of the club in public at least.}

09 Mar 2018 12:58:22
thanks ed.

06 Mar 2018 17:27:57
A small insight needed from ed0002, ed do you think united will follow up last summer's interest in Fabinho? And will it be for RB or Holding role?

{Ed002's Note - Possibly but he won't be first choice.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Mar 2018 18:36:45
Any chance .................

{Ed002's Note - This is the MANCHESTER UNITED page - stop the trolling.}

08 Mar 2018 15:19:35
One of the Red Devil, I just scanned your post - And will it be for RB or Holding role? -

and saw Rob Holding. Panic ensued for a minute!

06 Mar 2018 16:35:01
Hi Ed's. Bit of a random rumour but are we interested in David Alaba? Heard the rumours and thought surely not. Thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Mar 2018 17:36:11
Yea I was thinking as much. Thanks for the quick reply.

05 Mar 2018 16:00:38
Umtiti to United seems to be gathering pace . Just what the defence needs -well he will do for starters 😆😆.

{Ed002's Note - There was a January attempt but sometimes it is not so easy to complete transfers and a lot of time is lost trying to get a deal in place. Manchester City put a lot of effort in the last couple of weeks of the transfer window to try and sign Fred, but now they need to wait until summer; Chelsea spent much of the transfer window trying to agree the move for a player; Liverpool would have taken Nobby Keita early but that was not possible without paying a sum they could not stomach; Arsenal put offers on the table for Medhi Benatia but got nowhere at all; Manchester United tried to sort a deal for Samuel Umtiti in January but were told that Barcelona wanted his replacement in place before they would let him go – and all of their efforts to sign Dayot Upamecano failed because of a ridiculous price tag. It is sort of the way it is now.

I am not aware of any change in the situation with Umtiti but Barcelona do see Umtiti as demanding too much too quickly from the club financially after such a short period of time. I think perhaps one to wait and see what happens and it is potentially a case of his representative looking for leverage.}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Mar 2018 16:28:07
Thanks for the reply Ed02😆😆.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

05 Mar 2018 16:54:40
Great reply Ed002, thank you very much!

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}

05 Mar 2018 17:33:49
Who else gets all sorts of 'urges' when they see the long red paragraph from Ed002? Or is it just me? 😂😂😂.

05 Mar 2018 17:59:53
type of urges are you referring to?

05 Mar 2018 18:46:51
The ones you can't display in public FZZ.

05 Mar 2018 19:19:02
Ok haha, no I don't get them.

05 Mar 2018 22:22:58
Great response to post Ed002. 👍👏.

06 Mar 2018 11:28:36
Great insight as always ed!

06 Mar 2018 15:05:16
I think Umtiti would be a fantastic addition, he is a very good LCB, good composure on the ball, but I don't want to get my hopes up.

06 Mar 2018 16:19:46
Must mean departures then if a centreback is lined up. Also heard we're interested in Alderwierald.

{Ed002's Note - Just to repeat what has been explained, in no particular order:
Toby Alderweireld (CB) - but may need to fend off an offer of a new deal from Spurs, Manchester City and Real Madrid
Raphael Varane (CB) - it drags on rather but Real Madrid may be willing to let hom leave this summer for the right price as part of their major rebuild programme
Samuel Umtiti (CB) - unlikely right now as another English side who have enquired have been told he is negotiating a new deal - if that can't be agreed we will see, but Barcelona won't sell before they have a replacement and that is provining financially difficult
David Lopez (CB) - do not rule him out}
