It breaks my heart to see city are being linked with Isco while we chase another 7ft player like decooure from Watford.

We are linked with Neymer, does that make you happy?

2.) 30 Mar 2018 12:14:37
I’d happily take Decourey. Good player who gives his all. Underrated.

3.) 30 Mar 2018 12:15:40
Because Doucoure plays for Watford doesn’t make him a poor standard of player. Tevez came to us from a loan at West Ham, lukaku from everton. How many times has signing a “world class” player actually worked out for us recently. Eg Di Maria, Falcao, Sanchez and pogba ain’t hit the heights yet.

4.) 30 Mar 2018 12:53:39
Where would they fit Isco in? Or they going to move on the lad they paid 60 mill for who barely plays.

5.) 31 Mar 2018 13:05:38
I think Ndidi at Leicester is other one for us to take a look at.

Isco is great, but if he was all that Madrid would keep the home grown golden boy

We need 2 full backs, a centre half and two central midfielders. Up top we have more than enough.

6.) 03 Apr 2018 13:39:29

So you believe the Isco to city rumours but ignore any rumours linking United to top players, anyone would think you are deliberately choosing to do that to be negative.

7.) 04 Apr 2018 01:59:55
Isco isn't home grown they bought him at a young age of malaga i think it was.

Help! One club found, lost owners, seems confused. Can anyone rescue this club. Good breed, just needs some love and care.

Club needs new owners, new leader, new manager but immediately today needs a decision maker who can see the downward direction we are hurtling in and change it, soon before it’s too late.

2.) 01 Oct 2019 18:37:54
Red Man, I'm beginning to think that we'll never see a day when Woodward will be moved on and allow a DOF to start planning. I also think that
Until the Glazers sell the club to someone who actually gives a . then, we're stuck in this circle.

I said on the chat last night, that this year has shades of what happened when we got relegated. Management in chaos, experienced players past their best, owners not fully committed. The year in Division 2 was brilliant, enjoyed the games and the players and fans had a real bond. The way it's going, history might be repeating itself.

Not much point of going on about the result or the performance, we all know it was unacceptable.
But my worry is the amount of injuries we're picking up. This happens every year and it can't be pure bad luck. City and liverpool are playing a very high press, high tempo game and they don't seem to pick up anywhere near the amount of injuries we have.
Is this the fault of training and physical conditioning staff? Is it the fault of our facilities? Is it the fault of our scouting in not picking up players who have injury problems?
It is hard to see that we have so many players with continuous injury issues, Shaw, Jones, Rojo, Martial, Dalot, Bailly, Sanchez, Pogba.
Can the club be doing a lot more to ensure the players stay fit and don't suffer these injuries so often.

In Klopps first season we picked up loads of injuries bud. Takes a lot to condition players to that high intensity game and you don't have the squad to cope with it I'm afraid.

2.) 23 Sep 2019 01:50:20
Liverpool and City both pick up their fair share of injuries. The difference is they have the squad depth to cope with it. Look at City’s defense at the moment as a prime example of this.

3.) 23 Sep 2019 07:01:34
Agreed, but we have players with persistent injury problems, shaw, martial, Jones, bailly. So, could we be doing more to ensure their condition is looked at.
Bobby, you have actually agreed with my point, the training staff at liverpool and City are doing a great job, while our lot seem to be lagging behind. A few games of high press, and half of our team is injured. This is exactly the point I'm making.

4.) 23 Sep 2019 09:18:55

It's mostly about the depth of your squad too. You need to have in your squad players ready to replace others in case of injuries.

In fact in the past seasons we have be one of if the not the one with chronic in this matter.

Poor planning will cost us a lot. People think that we just need two or more transfer windows to get back, but we need much more. We are in downfall and didn't hit the bottom yet.

5.) 23 Sep 2019 13:51:15
AAA my point is you can't get to that level of conditioning in one pre season. I remember all the criticism of Klopps early LFC team - they can't play like that for 90 minutes. It was true. we often relied on blitzing teams for 20 mins and trying to see the game out.
Yes we are better at it now but that is the result of 2-3 seasons work imo.

6.) 23 Sep 2019 15:25:52
BobbyF excellent post and thanks for adding some context. Klopp didn't walk into Liverpool as the messiah and he received his fair share of criticism in some quarters for his style of play and even his in game management. I'm sure I even remember Jamie Carrigher criticising him for never making a substitution before 75 minutes but maybe that was due to having limited options and an average squad at the time? Remind you of anyone?

Even VVD took some early criticism, eye brows were raised regarding the fee with many proclaiming he was well over priced and Liverpool had been ripped off!

OGS interested in Dier, that deserves instant dismissal. He can't be serious.

Has OGS come out and said that?

2.) 07 Jun 2019 19:24:01
Dier is a decent footballer and people were raving about him when we were linked last summer.

3.) 08 Jun 2019 00:34:05
He is one dimensional and has mobility of a tank.

4.) 08 Jun 2019 07:44:02
Tanks were designed to traverse the roughest of terrains. Depending on the situation, they are more mobile than most.

Morning to all posters and Eds. Not posted for a long time as i didn't want to upset posters or Eds. But here's my two pennies worth on the current situation and my wish for the future of the club.
Current situation is that we have a goalkeeper who seems to have lost concentration with all the contract talks and his annual wish to move away. Best shot stopper around, but lacks command, does not communicate, does not come out fir crosses, and pretty poor at distribution. I'll say thank you David and cash in on him.
The rest of the players, Rojo, Bailly, Jones, Sanchez, are always injured and have to go.
Young, Matic, Pereira, Fred are just not good enough, they'll have to be let go.
Brings us to Pogba and Martial, all the talent in the world but no application and generally can't be bothered attitude is an insult to the shirt and to the fans. Pogba in particular, has no future at United.
The future. Out of all the clubs i Europe, the club that has traditions similar to United for bringing on young players and trusting them is Ajax. They have a superb academy, they give youth a chance, and they play football in the right way. In addition, they have one of our own legends doing a fantastic job as DOF, Edwin van der Sar. The man is a legend, loves our club and is highly intelligent and clued on. If i had my wish, most of our transfer activity will be done with the present Ajax players.
De Ligt is simply the best defender around and at 19 is captaining the Ajax side. Veltman at right back, shackled Ronaldo completely, tough, no nonsense player with an excellent engine on him, and a good cross. Then we have de Beek and Schonė in midfield. De Beek is extremely cultured and can connect defence to attack, while Schonė is like a terrier and that's a quality we don't have in the cutrent team.
If we can add a right winger to the above four players and trust Mctominay as a defensive midfielder or even bring in Rice. Then the above additions will make a massive difference in the rebuild.
We have to get rid of the players who don't want to be here and the ones who are not good enough, and replace them with the Ajax nucleus i mentioned as they are used to playing with each other, plus a couple of the other additions and we will be on the right track.
I realize it is not a simple process, transfers are notoriously difficult to conduct in certain occasions, but we have to try. De Ligt at CB is a must to start rebuilding the core of the team. I hope the club goes in that direction.
Apologies for long post and stupid views!

Nice to see you back AAA. Hope you are well mate.

2.) 25 Apr 2019 13:14:39
Having watched McTominay really closely for Scotland and Utd I think we are misusing him as a DM. His height and physicality seem to mean he is shoehorned into replace Matic. However, the big man has quick feet and a real desire to get into the box. I think he is a more traditional CM who can go forwards and backwards. Certainly a lot more like a more attacking Darren Fletcher than the sort of strict Matic-esque figure some want him to be.

3.) 25 Apr 2019 16:41:04
Hi Park, many thanks, i read the site every day and enjoy all the comments. Shame that we're not linked with any of the Ajax players as Ed002 has pointed out. De Ligt is a much better defender than Koulibaly, he's only 19 and is Captain material. Anyway, it's a shame that we're not going down that route as it seems we'll be getting Mike Phelan as Sporting Director, a man that never inspired while playing or being Fergie right hand man.
Hopefully, we'll not be spending shedloads on overrated 29yr old players with no future.
I hope Solskjaer has the bottle to get rid of the players who are disrupting the club, and hope the owners actually learn from past mistakes. But reading what Ed002 said, I'm not holding my breath.
Carry on posting guys, it's what makes this site so enjoyable to read in good and not so good times.

4.) 25 Apr 2019 16:44:07
SO72, he's a very good talent, and age and experience will show us where he'll be best suited. But i would much rather he played where Matic plays than Matic! I also don't think that a defensive midfielder should just stay in one place, it's up to the rest of the midfield to cover if the defensive midfielder sees a gap to attack.

5.) 25 Apr 2019 19:54:32

Good to hear from you again. Phelan would be a desperate choice as Director of anything. Actually was Phelan’s most inspiring act not popping the balloon on the bench that made SAF jump?

Dead right Betty. We seem to keep making these mistakes and we don't learn. The club, manager, owners are a joke.

Beast, you called it absolutely right. If De Gea hadn't made unbelievable saves, we will be looking at a 2 or 3 nil scoreline. I hate the passionless, clueless displays. I hate the lack of cohesion in the team. This result is not a good result, one goal for Seville and we have to score two. Even if we score first, we will still be extremely nervous.
I would say it is advantage Seville.
But the most ridiculous post i'd the one from 12daysofhemida. "A huge amount of us have got used to success", "We have to be practical we are still in a rebuilding phase", "Short termism and harking back to the good old days do not benefit the club". These are exactly the type of comments that drive me potty. How could you get too used to success? So shall we have a few years of rubbish performances as we don't want to be to used to success? Utter tripe. Then he mentions we are still rebuilding, we have been rebuilding for five years. A good business doesn't allow its performance to deteriorate, then start rebuilding. All the top clubs are in a constant state of rebuilding. Harking back to the old times? History is what defines you, and history is what you learn from and improve. So when you talk about harking back to the old times, you're basically telling us that we might as well throw away our history.
If you allow standards to drop and mediocrity to set in, then we might as well pack our bags and go home. That's not the philosophy of the club I've supported for over 50 years. we were built on attacking entertaining football with all the right values. Unfortunately, we are losing these values.

Tuor as I've been saying, there is a distinct possibility of us going down unless the manager is changed, striker arrives in January, new midfielders arrive in January, and Woodward finally recruits a dof to actually move the club into the 21st century.

For God's sake shappy, red man is only pointing out what happened at Cardiff in 2014 and what's happening now, which has worrying similarities. And as LaBamba mentioned, Ole set Cardiff back 5 years.
