Anybody who attended the game on saturday hear lots of booing of lukaku? Mourinho seems to be making an issue of it.


1.) 30 Oct 2017 14:36:52
If there was booing it’s fickle of the fans to do so. Lukaku is at a new club and has scored a fair few goals already. He’s still improving as a player. He’s been here only a few months. Against Spurs he hit the post and set up Martial. Whilst playing up top is about scoring goals, you also have to be good off the ball, make those penetrating runs. Drag defenders out of position. Against Liverpool he didn’t really do that, but neither did the rest of the team.

2.) 30 Oct 2017 16:06:20
I didn’t hear any booing.

There was a few groans but nothing overtly negative to any of the players.

3.) 30 Oct 2017 17:07:01
Few groans i heard on tv when he stopped and started chasing a ball.

Think Jose is on about booing the Rashford sub?

If not then he's (to me) looking at a way to divide himself from the most important aspect of the club, and looking for a way out.

4.) 30 Oct 2017 17:32:52
Only seen jose mention booing of the rashford sub.

He has mentioned fans not being supportive of lukaku tho.

5.) 31 Oct 2017 06:13:12
I'm sorry, but fans booing Mou for taking Rashford off was uncalled for.

I think, personal opinion though, is that Rashford is a slightly frustrating player at times. I think sometimes he tries a bit too hard, dribbles one player too many and his delivery in the final 3rd can leave you wanting for more.

One example of him being extremely frustrating was the Benfica match. Whenever he took a corner, he just wanted to score directly from it and even the free kick from which he scored, was just luck.

I'm not saying he's a bad player, he's a talented guy who might make it big, but the current problem is that he tries to win the match on his own and that is frustrating.

Now, the substitution on Saturday, for the Spurs game was spot on. Yes, Martial has had bad games too, but I feel both are better in the current system as impact subs. Anyway, not to start an argument or to piss other posters off, just my take.

6.) 31 Oct 2017 13:19:24
Think there is any chance that Jose told rash to put every corner free kick on the young keeper, let's see what his like .
Might even make a mistake?

7.) 01 Nov 2017 06:53:40

That might be the issue, but then, don't you think that's a complete waste of tactic, we've got players who are well above 6 feet. Don't you think it would make sense to try and find at least one?

8.) 01 Nov 2017 07:42:28
We scored of it, job done .
Rash but 2 corners and then the free kick on gK in the space of 3 minutes and he struggled with all 3 .

How many times to we actually see teams make a chance off a corner, even with players over 6ft.

It was a tactic it worked, the gK was struggling with it why change?

9.) 01 Nov 2017 08:32:21
I think a lot of teams take advantage of a set-piece situation. Whether it is a free kick or even a corner. I think that's the whole purpose an attacking set-piece, putting the opponent under pressure.

I'm not saying the tactic didn't work, it did and we scored, but I'll take it as more of a fluke, rather than a practised thing.



12 Aug 2017 18:28:02
Spurs had a bid rejected for martial.

Would be a cracking move for him personally to play under pochetino especially after ed002 stated that jose wouldn't mind letting him go.


1.) 12 Aug 2017 19:04:32
Couldn't think of a less Poch player. He won't press and rubbish down like the Spurs players do.

2.) 12 Aug 2017 19:18:03

3.) 12 Aug 2017 19:21:06
Would only sell to spurs for an exaggerated price as leavy has done to us on previous occasions, or if we are interested in Rose, then its Rose + 10 mil for martial.

4.) 12 Aug 2017 19:49:11
I wouldn't like to sell him. I think he needs a loan in order to get 40 or so games under his belt then bring him back a better and more mature player.

5.) 12 Aug 2017 20:14:47
If we are selling him then we must be signing a wide player to replace him.

6.) 12 Aug 2017 20:30:48
Ken, mourinho has come out and said he wants a winger who can get 15 odd goals a season, that's exactly what martial has done in his first season.

He just needs to be backed by the manager with a solid run in the team.

7.) 12 Aug 2017 21:05:10
Far too inconsistent and Jose doesn't gamble much he likes playing players he trusts and don't think does that with martial.

8.) 12 Aug 2017 22:41:12
I'd let him go, i'm not a fan, if you can get Rose in return, do it.

9.) 12 Aug 2017 23:21:39
Why sell to Spurs? Loan him elsewhere at worst, or keep and develop him at best! There's a great player there.

10.) 13 Aug 2017 09:05:09
martial needs games but if jm likes perisic so much put martial in with the deal for a loan to inter for 12mth be better than selling him if it doesn't work out at inter then maybe think about selling him next year.

11.) 13 Aug 2017 10:46:07
People don't want Bale because of his injury record but want us to sign Rose who has played pretty much the same amount of games. As for Martial, he needs to pick up this year or I think he will be on his way. Jose is pretty black and white when it comes to players, you are in or you are out, Martial needs to decide which it is.

12.) 13 Aug 2017 10:59:59
What you forget DSG is that in his first season he was playing as a number 9 not a winger.

13.) 13 Aug 2017 12:16:03
I think it would be madness to sell him to spurs. He is so so young and if we were stupid enough to sell him to spurs, he will rip it up in that team.

People should go see tapes of Morata, Lukaku, kane, Bale, Benzema, lewondowski and the list goes on when they were 20/ 21, maybe then you will realize how good he is and he needs time and playing on a consistent basis.

Lingard is very average iMO and it will be about if Jose can live with Martial's mistakes/ flaws to allow him to grow as a player.

14.) 13 Aug 2017 14:35:30
Id loan him if it was the right club and he'd be guaranteed so many starts/ minutes. Wouldn't sell this summer. But he needs to sort his head out.

15.) 13 Aug 2017 14:48:57
I agree mort.

16.) 13 Aug 2017 15:38:11
Ken/ mort

Nothing wrong with the kids head and nothing wrong with shaw either. They are so young they will need playing time and will mature and learn and become smarter football players by experience as both have all the talent you want in a young player. The pressure of playing for a club like us is immense by both our fans and the media who loves a bad story about us and people need to cut them some slack.

17.) 13 Aug 2017 15:44:25
Martial clearly had issues last year because of his personal life.

You can have all the talent in the world but if you can't mentally cope with the pressure of playing for a big club then its going to have an effect.

18.) 13 Aug 2017 16:24:05
He's never physically played as a number 9 consistently. Even LVG played him on the left. Except when he had the shirt.

19.) 13 Aug 2017 17:56:54
We need a large squad. No need to sell players unless they offer nothing to the team. We have a very good squad. On paper a very strong first XI. I'd offload players who add nothing, keep the players who add something, even if off the bench.

20.) 13 Aug 2017 18:25:32
X files
On the money my man.

21.) 13 Aug 2017 18:49:27
Selling martial would be madness unless we had a buy back clause. He is going to be a top player, he is still young and has that something special and can change a game. Given a decent run in the team and i'm sure he will shine and change a few on heres opinions.

22.) 13 Aug 2017 20:41:49

Tell that to Jose. He doesn't seem to trust either so there must be something amiss.

23.) 13 Aug 2017 22:27:31
Took his goal well today and looked dangerous and direct.

24.) 13 Aug 2017 22:45:49
Good cameo today and lovely finish. Rash also looked good in the second half. Attacking options - makes me feel giddy inside.

25.) 14 Aug 2017 07:22:17
In a market where teams will blow their bank account for young talented players its counter intuitive to go sell young talent with huge potential because they are not the seasoned product. They get there by being able to play.

Most of us would have never seen Rashford had it not been for the injuries and the kid getting a chance. Michael keane was also deemed not good enough but a full season of playing elsewhere did wonders for the kid.

I think Martial is a top top player and better than a lot of players people mention and needs playing time. Its a long season and injuries will happen and we will need guys like him who can make a difference.

26.) 14 Aug 2017 14:14:53
100% spot on X Files.



09 Jul 2016 21:49:17
Hi eds any truth in reports that the club are looking to bring in david de geas old goalkeeping coach emilio alvarez blanco from their time together at atletico madrid?


{Ed004's Note - Thought it was confirmed?}

1.) 10 Jul 2016 13:39:46
It has been confirmed.



18 Jun 2016 16:19:21
So that lukaku guy, he had a good game, hope some took note. 2 games, 2 goals. Not a bad goal to game ratio.


1.) 18 Jun 2016 16:28:18
I still don't think he will be top class.

I'd love for him to turn out like Drogba. He and Henry are probably my two favourite none United strikers of all time.

2.) 18 Jun 2016 17:39:23
Drogba was a pretty late bloomer by the way. Lukaku has time to develop if he sorts out his first touch he will be class.

3.) 18 Jun 2016 18:57:41
I think you either have a good touch, or you don't.

4.) 18 Jun 2016 19:19:29
In university an old coach had us play football tennis for hours on end it did wonders for our first touch.

5.) 18 Jun 2016 21:09:25
You didn't cost the University £50 million or so - paying that kind of money and then playing football tennis to make him better would be a joke.

6.) 19 Jun 2016 00:22:13
Yeah, you should stop improving once you've been sold for more the £2.5m. If you've not got it by then then you should be flogged or left to rot in the reserves.

7.) 19 Jun 2016 19:33:54
He's slightly better than Benteke, which is not saying a lot.



04 Jun 2016 17:42:36
Wullie ballache reporting that were going sign eric bailly from villareal.

Havent seen or heard much about which is probably a good thing these days.


1.) 04 Jun 2016 18:46:29
Red from the jersey here. Gutted he's quality.

2.) 04 Jun 2016 18:51:07
Good player. He is as strong as an Ox.

3.) 04 Jun 2016 21:23:42
Not exactly the experienced defender we were expecting, while he is undoubtedly strong and good in the air, he is prone to mistakes, lacks discipline, eleven cautions in all competitions this year. Maybe one for the future but I would have to question whether it would be an improvement on what we have at the moment.

4.) 04 Jun 2016 22:38:34
If he comes in I could see us bringing in another CB as well. 2 Centre backs, a midfielder, a right sided winger and Ibrahimovic would be the perfect window.

5.) 05 Jun 2016 14:24:42
Samuel Umtiti would be a good buy although I hear Barcelona are looking at him?

Also, are we interested in Leroy Sanè, from Schalke?

6.) 06 Jun 2016 01:15:22
See my comments on Bailly on post above!

7.) 06 Jun 2016 11:29:55
I would mean a Bailly/ Umtiti at the back (middle)

RB - Fabinho (from Monaco)
LB - Shaw

Darmian should be sold!

{Ed004's Note - I'm hoping Mensah claims the right back position this season but I think Mourinho will like Valencia and get the best out of Darmian so it's probably the last outfield position that needs looked at tbh}

Last season zlatan scored 17 of our 54 goals (less than bournemouth lol) in the league which roughly equates to 31%

This season Lukaku has scored 7 of our 22 league goals which is also 31% (smaller sample size i know) .

However Last season it was obvious that we were not getting goals from other areas. Have we even addressed that problem?

To win the league you are looking to get between 80-100 goals in the season and lukaku will probably get 20-25 which leaves a lot for the other to pick up.

What do you think the others should be aiming for this season? Likes of micky and mata have only scored two league goals this season which is not good enough.


1.) 27 Oct 2017 07:32:07

I said pre season this is a problem and we didn’t address it. Jose said he wanted a wide forward and Woodward did not deliver. It is why I believe we will not be likely to win the league but top three is our best hope.

2.) 27 Oct 2017 09:43:45
We have scored plenty of goals people are obsessed with pointing out the negatives and seem only capable about talking about the last 2 games.
It feels like people have been waiting for a bad game to say I told u so.

3.) 27 Oct 2017 10:54:16
Yeah I've been a biit guilty of that, I often give others stick for getting caught up in a moment and not taking a step back to see the bigger picture. I had us down as second to City, still think that is very possible, looking forward to a reaction on Saturday.

I am still concerned about Jose though but we shall see.

4.) 27 Oct 2017 11:11:21
Great point DSG we're still lacking some consistency from any of the 3 that normally play behind Lukaku!

Lukaku was always going to come in and replace Ibra's goals but our season will be defined by how much the likes of Rashford, Martial, Miki, Mata and Lingard can contribute!

Is there any chance Ibra will come back and partner Lukaku and maybe play just behind him as he often dropped deep last year anyway?

5.) 27 Oct 2017 11:11:42
It's prob a bit early to make a judgement either way, it's still a bit early in the season . City won 10 in a row at the start of last season .
That said I think there are far more positives than negatives so far this season and using 2 games against Liverpool and Huddersfield as the bench mark while ignoring everything before it seem a bit off .

All ready been a lot said about Kane missing for spurs but United also got more than 1 big name missing.
Win tomorrow and the last 2 games won't seem so bad .
Get beat and people will get more concerned.

6.) 27 Oct 2017 12:47:49
to be fair the 3 behind have changed due to injuries
Regarding the chipping in with goals, I can see us being more active in january than a lot think, with 2-3 additions.
Add ibra back as well as pogba and rojo who came on well before his injury I think things will look rosy after xmas.



23 Oct 2017 17:09:26
Hi eds,

Is there any update on when pogba will return to action?

The club have been strangely quiet on putting a timeframe on his recovery.



{Ed025's Note - its a hamstring DSG so even though hes back doing light training its impossible to say mate..



09 Aug 2017 09:50:43
Just a few points from last nights game:

1.) where was pogba playing in the first half?, spent a lot of time at left wing back behind jesse which was odd.

2.) rashford made a good difference coming on last night, love how he runs directly at defenders, him or martial have to be a must on the team sheet every week.

3.) looking at joses comments, think lindleof will be eased in this season and won't play a lot of prem games. Will probably be bailly and smalling/ jones till rojo comes back in the new year.

Lastly reports that zlatan will get a new deal soon, thoughts on that.


1.) 09 Aug 2017 10:29:30
I was confused where a few were playing although every time they had the ball we seemed to drop very very deep. The biggest issue I saw in the first half we were just not joined up, not playing as a team.

2.) 09 Aug 2017 10:47:39
I am sorry but i don't really see what difference Rashford made. It was Fellaini that got stuck in and played a vital role in that. Rashford was wasteful if anything. He can run all night at defenders but unless he finishes he is a nobody. He spilt the best chance we had. There was a very good opportunity to put the ball in for Lukaku and he was free but again Rashford couldnt. What difference did he make. Play Bolt there for the sprinting. People call on for giving him time but that can't be afforded in such games and he keeps missing those golden chances. that's the reason we had so many draws last season because these players couldn't put the ball in the back of the net and i am not sure if we can afford such misses again this season.

3.) 09 Aug 2017 11:31:50
Our problems last night were the same as last season we didn't take our chances and we kept giving the ball away cheaply.

4.) 09 Aug 2017 11:39:17
Pogba was poor all game. He is too much an individualist for a midfielder and makes poor decisions, also quite lazy getting back when we lose the ball if anyone was paying attention. I though Herrera was quite poor too even though I really like him but modric and Kroos made him look very average.

Smalling makes our back line look unstablele as he is the culprit of people getting pulled out of position and wants no part of playing the ball out from the back and not suited to a 3 cb system as it needs 3 cbs that are comfortable playing from the back.

Rashford is so young people need to lay off the kid and he will get better and better and be a star.

5.) 09 Aug 2017 12:11:45
Pogba needs to sort the basics out he is all for show and lazy.
So frustrating because he has all the talent all the atributes but only wakes up when he has the ball.
We will have a soft centre until he ups his work rate.



07 Aug 2017 18:36:34
Would anyone take a chance on deulofeu if perisic and bale don't happen, Barcelona wouldn't mind selling for a profit and he linked up well with lukaku when played together at everton.

That being said he can be frustratingly inconsistent but he has one hell of a cross on him.


1.) 07 Aug 2017 20:17:49
I take the dislikes as a no lol.

2.) 07 Aug 2017 23:27:00
He looked very good on his day but if he can't become a regular at Everton and consistent then I don't think he shouldn't be near our first team.

3.) 07 Aug 2017 23:00:16
Perisic is a Jose type player. Works really hard off the ball and defensively and gets a lot of balls into the box. Bale is in the upper echelons in the football world and would be a no brainer if a deal could be struck.

Other than someone who's going to improve us, what's the point? I'm not a fan of Lingard one bit but I'd rather him than Deulofeu!

4.) 07 Aug 2017 23:34:53
He's not even average.



04 Aug 2017 15:05:42
Conte when asked about selling matic to united:

"Talk to the board not me"

Does that contradict the notion that he was surplus to requirements and getting on a bit and replaced with a better player in bakayoko?


1.) 04 Aug 2017 17:52:07
Bit part squad player 😂.

2.) 04 Aug 2017 23:54:13
if there was one chelsea player the fans would have no problem leaving the squad it was matic, sloppy lazy and not to good on the ball, we supporters watch every game our team plays like yourselves, and he was the only player i found myself shouting to get took off, maybe it was the way he was asked to play at chelsea? maybe he will do it for yourselves, we will see.

3.) 05 Aug 2017 09:17:37
You keep telling yourself that Belfast. It's okay. But thanks for improving our team though 🖒.

4.) 05 Aug 2017 09:32:42
Yeah he is crap Belfast we have really took a bullet for you there 😜 there is talk of you replacing matic with drinkwater for God's sake as a Chelsea fan you must be pulling your hair out!

5.) 05 Aug 2017 17:46:03
pulling my hair out? not really champions two of the last three years, while sitting back having a laugh at yourselves so deano hows your hair been recently?

I would appeal it because if he does get an extra game ban for a frivelous appeal, he would only miss the league cup game against bristol city as well as the 3 league games he'd already miss.

I think he will be sold if mourinho stays as pereira seemed to go against what mourinho wanted in going on loan to valencia.

We all know how stubborn mourinho is and he won't have taken that well.

I would personally take him over mkhitaryan or mata.

Not for just his attacking threat but the fact also that pogba is really the only player at the club who can find the balance between taking risks and playing it safe.

We have players in midfield like matic, herrera and fellaini who really only pass sideways or back and keep possession and players like micky and martial who struggle to keep hold of the ball for any prolonged period of time because they are more attack minded.

Pogba really was an turning into an all round midfielder at the start of the season, good passing range long and short, great at carrying the ball forward and shielding it and most importanly he was beginning to affect the game in the final third with goals and assists.
