Here's a question. If, and it's a very big if, Mourinho was to leave the club. Would anyone think of Zidane as the next coach of our team?
I take all the nonsense in the media with a pinch of salt when it comes to Pogba and Shaw falling out daily with Mourinho, but there is definitely something amiss at the moment. Hopefully it's Jose's tough love and the players pull their socks up and get on with the remainder of the season.

I do feel though that the board and senior figures will soon get tired of the Mourinho circus if results don't change.
That's where Zidane comes into it. There's a massive possibility he will lose his job at Real in the summer which is a shame as he's won the CL twice in his short managerial career. The most obvious option would be for him to join PSG but I would certainly take a gamble on him IF Jose were to go and Zidane became available.

Zidane and scholes 👍👍👍 🤞👌👌👌.

2.) 21 Mar 2018 22:08:12
I'd really like this option. There are several French speaking players in the squad and I'm sure he'll quick be an inspiration to them. He seems like a decent enough guy too from the interviews I've seen.

3.) 21 Mar 2018 22:42:31
At least Zidane won't be afraid to 'butt heads' with the big boys in the team. A few ego's need reining in imo.

4.) 22 Mar 2018 12:34:04
Love Zidane as a player and would have been an honour to have him playing for united. But I’m not too sure about his managerial capabilities. I think his biggest strength actually appears to be man management of egos in that real squad, and keeping the players happy. He has a fantastic squad at his disposal. However, he does seem to know how to get the best out of the players so that is a positive. I have to disagree there beast on Zidane reining in egos. This is exactly what Jose is doing now and he is being criticised so what makes Zidane doing it any different? I’m not advocating what Jose does as I do not believe he is right for us. But isn’t it a bit ridiculous to want Zidane to butt head
s with the egos in the squad when Jose is doing the same but yet criticised for it?

5.) 22 Mar 2018 16:53:19
Park - it was a poor joke based on what was one of the most remarkable things witnessed during a game. World Cup Final 2006, Zidane 'Head Butting' Materazzi in the chest.

6.) 22 Mar 2018 17:30:34
Haha my mistake beastie didn’t notice that one.



30 Jan 2018 21:01:30
Daley Blind could be off to Roma. Class act if you ask me, just isn't quite at the level needed at United. He's the one Van Gaal signing I wanted to see workout.


1.) 30 Jan 2018 22:02:21
I like Blind excellent passer and can play in a variety of positions. Clever tactically too just his lack of pace that let's him down. Be sad to see him go.

2.) 30 Jan 2018 22:09:01
Sorry but I disagree, incredibly mediocre who just isn’t cut out for this league.

3.) 30 Jan 2018 22:23:58
Good pro always gives 100% will do well elsewhere and I'm not sure it's true as we don't have a replacement but regardless he is not a ideal fit for us or the epl in general due to his lack of pace.

4.) 31 Jan 2018 06:35:48
Anyone thinks Blind can replace Carrick? Appreciate opinions. Thanks 🙏.

5.) 31 Jan 2018 07:14:01
Blind has very good passing ability and seems to have a very good understanding of the game. However, I don't think he could replace Carrick.

Physically, Blind would struggle against teams that press high as he isn't quick enough not does he have the strength to hold people off. Carrick isn't the quickest but because of his awareness and ability to shield the ball is an excellent passing central midfielder.

If we have a good offer for Blind I'd say take it. We still have 5 CB's if he leaves and Shaw, Young, Darmian (doesn't look like he is leaving this window) and Rojo can all play left back. Next season we should have TFM back and he can fill a utility role in the squad.

6.) 31 Jan 2018 08:25:09
Thanks RJ for opinion. So if Blind can’t replace Carrick who then can we buy or any younger players?
Feel free to comment anyone. Thanks.

7.) 31 Jan 2018 10:47:57
Mediocre player. certainly not good enough for that central midfield area if we have aspirations of winning the Premiership and the champions League. I would be going for the Lazio midfielder Savic.

8.) 31 Jan 2018 12:51:55
Only a few players can replace Carrick 666. I think Weigl is perfect and would love us to sign him. Otherwise you have Jorginho and of course Kroos. Tielemens is a left field option always been impressed with him and also Dendoncker. I would prefer we went for an engine in midfield as I think it would compliment pogba and matic better. A Vidal/ Kante would be perfect. Or the other option is go for more creativity like city do with De Bruyne and silva. Milinkovic Savic or Thiago alacantara would be perfect. I think Milinkovic Savic is the one we must move heaven and earth for. Interesting to see what we do.



14 Jul 2017 19:11:12
Wesley Sneijder's been released by Galatasaray. Let the rumours commence.


1.) 14 Jul 2017 20:44:02
Exactly the type of player we need.

2.) 14 Jul 2017 22:03:48
6 years ago.



05 Jul 2017 10:43:25
Apparently Inter have rejected our recent bid of £40mil for Perisic.


1.) 05 Jul 2017 11:36:59
Time to walk away, good player but this deal is dragging on now and the cost is starting to go beyond what the player is worth.

2.) 05 Jul 2017 12:01:39
Unfortunately we are going to pay over the odds for any player because as ed002 has said teams see us as daft enough to pay these prices.

3.) 05 Jul 2017 12:08:44
We have set a precedents since SAF left for being stupid. Happening with Morata too - £80m is a joke and they've turned down £70m.

4.) 05 Jul 2017 12:23:00
Really fresh do you believe that?

5.) 05 Jul 2017 12:34:38
How do you mean Ken?

6.) 05 Jul 2017 13:20:57
What does it matter fresh? Don't worry about the money side. None of us have a clue about it. If that's the valuation, so be it.

7.) 05 Jul 2017 14:54:10
All prices quoted in the media are probably over inflated as it helps to sell papers or get hits. I doubt we are currently that high with our offer.

8.) 05 Jul 2017 14:57:02
It matters if it means we don't have enough for other players we need. I don't know if this is the case or not. If it doesn't affect other signings I couldn't care less what we pay. i'm assuming the owners know how much we can afford to spend.

9.) 05 Jul 2017 16:52:25
Not privvy to any info regarding madrid- man utd negotiations, but surely if they are playing hard ball they must realise they can get stung with big numbers if they go for DDG?

{Ed002's Note - It is of no relevance to what is being discussed with any other players.}

10.) 05 Jul 2017 17:29:42
This is crazy money for Morata.

11.) 05 Jul 2017 17:58:07
Your last line sums it up perfectly RWWD.

12.) 05 Jul 2017 17:59:10
I take it ed002 that real madrid have a valuation for the player and United have to match that or look for another target.

{Ed002's Note - OK if that is what you think.}



15 May 2017 18:45:58
Ed's I've heard today that we have agreed a deal for Brozovic at Inter. Back when all reports were saying Jose had gone to Croatia to tie up a deal for Perisic. Could it be that it was actually Brozovic?
Any truth in it?


1.) 15 May 2017 22:41:28
It's mentioned that he is a possible target.

2.) 16 May 2017 08:58:02
Is there an updated sharkopod? The one i last saw was one before the January transfer window talking about bastian n jose fonte!

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

Class from Lukaku at the final whistle towards the young Benfica keeper.


1.) 18 Oct 2017 22:09:50
Scholes: "it was the closest Lukaku got to him all night". Classic 😁.



04 Sep 2017 14:03:20
Zlatan is in the CL squad but on UEFA official site there's no Rashford?


1.) 04 Sep 2017 14:34:53
I think as he is under 21 you don't have to name him.

2.) 04 Sep 2017 15:48:24
Wilson named in the squad.

3.) 04 Sep 2017 15:58:17
Wonder if Sanchez made the arsenal squad.

4.) 04 Sep 2017 16:59:57
Is that right Redknight? Cheers.

5.) 04 Sep 2017 18:58:37
Mctominay, Rashford, Joel and Tuanzebe are included in he B list as all are under 21.

6.) 04 Sep 2017 20:39:04
Would Wilson be in to help the home-grown quota, jred? I don't really know the rules, so I'm only guessing. I'm also on my fourth tumbler of wine, while watching the footie, so I'm probably talking keek 😁.

7.) 04 Sep 2017 21:02:56
Could be I was surprised to see his name in there.

{Ed007's Note - If any of you can work it out then you're a better man than me!

8.) 04 Sep 2017 22:27:06
Before he was injured Wilson was an amazing finisher in the youth teams and I really had high hopes for him. If he can fulfill that early potential it would be wonderful.

9.) 05 Sep 2017 01:19:44
Wilson is named because he is 22 before the end of the first registration phase.

10.) 05 Sep 2017 11:36:49
Jake Livermore and Henderson in midfield. Jesus wept.



25 Aug 2017 23:01:11
I was at the u23 game tonight. Very poor showing from them against a well drilled Spurs side. It was evident that the Spurs team had played regularly together, where as we looked disjointed. Shaw looked way off match fitness which is probably to be expected. His decisions defensively are very worrying. First half he was caught out of position 4 or 5 times. Demitri Mitchell play wide left and had to cover at LB throughout the first half.
Wilson played up top and did absolutely nothing. Not a good performance at all.
Maybe I'm all doom and gloom because of the result but the more experienced guys tonight were really poor.


1.) 25 Aug 2017 23:51:59
Isn't wilson coming off an injury as well?



03 Aug 2017 10:54:43
I didn't get to see the game last night, took the missus to the cinema.
How did they play? Which player was getting all the stick on the live chat? From what I've seen in pre season, we look to have a really settled squad and some of the football has been really nice good to watch. The Mkhitaryan goal last night looked like a well executed counter attack, something Jose's teams have been good at in the past. I'm feeling extremely positive with our squad and the season ahead.


1.) 03 Aug 2017 13:06:56
Was despicable me 3 good?

2.) 03 Aug 2017 13:31:58
Haha Already seen that! Went to see Dunkirk. Great film. Worth missing the football for.



31 Jul 2017 16:05:00
Matic confirmed.

I posted about this yesterday. It all seems a bit self indulgent to me. Called a press conference to say he’s decided his future but won’t say where. Piss off mate, come back when you’ve got done real news.

What a statement, you my friend, are not One of the Red Devil’s when you come out with nonsense like that.
Imagine an Arsenal fan saying ‘if Xhaka plays again I’ll start watching Spurs’. Go follow City or whoever is winning the league if that’s your level of support United.

And yet we had one effort on goal in the first half and about 30% possession.

Ive watched Lazio quit a bit this season and his crossing and first touch aren’t very good.
The last game of the season against Inter, he came on in the last few minutes and looked like a rabbit caught in headlights. I know that’s only a few minutes of one game but he really isn’t that good.

Decent programmes on History at the moment. I’m currently watching FIFA World Cup official film, Italia 90.
Wednesday night they’ve got ‘One night in Turin’. Gets you right in the mood for the World Cup.

Welsh Red Devil, I trust Jose that he has scouted and could potentially sign a future ‘star’ in Dalot. I would just rather us push one of the youth players like Chong into the first team and give them a squad number rather than blow £50 odd million on an average Prem player. He’s had 4-5 seasons in the Premier league and at 29 had shown nothing to say he would be a ‘star’ for Manchester United.
It baffles if we really are looking at Arnautovic.

If the rumour is true and we’re looking at Arnautovic, then yes. We do not need another average player in our squad. He’s had one half decent season and is not worth the reported £50 million.
If this is the calibre of player Jose is after then I’d rather Moyes back!
