So City go 2-1 up with momentum and take off Jesus and go defensive, pep out?


1.) 30 Nov 2019 14:31:21
There's a career in politics for all the Pro Ole fans. Nonsense arguments and stats to show that the man is doing an ok job, yet none of you replied under Kens post showing Ole's absolutely pathetic win percentage.

Spin that into a positive?

2.) 30 Nov 2019 14:31:36
oop north in geordies back yard being saying all week that there isn't a better time to play citee than at the moment- 2-2 proves it.

3.) 30 Nov 2019 14:43:20
Mumbles, perhaps we’re all bored with this. Everyone’s positions are pretty well known so not sure I feel the need to reiterate mine any more.

4.) 30 Nov 2019 14:44:30
Absolutely, he should be gone by tomorrow. It's not like this pep nobody won the league by a record margin last season. What they need is a Cardiff legend to get them back to the top.

5.) 30 Nov 2019 15:27:45
That would be judging a manager on a game by game basis gds2. Better to judge over 30 odd games.

But you can put your rod away you got to bite🤣.

6.) 30 Nov 2019 15:37:54
Is 30 games enough to judge somebody on? Especially given all the set of circumstances that have to be taken into account.

7.) 30 Nov 2019 15:46:03
Mort didn't we sack mourinho on the basis of 17 PL games last season?

8.) 30 Nov 2019 16:31:58
He had lost the dressing room done to death. Amazing how many suddenly wanted Jose to stay. Everyone was calling for his head in the end.

Ole still has the backing of most of the squad. If that changes I'm sure he will have to go just like Jose and Poch did.

9.) 30 Nov 2019 16:34:39
Are results the only way to judge a manager?

{Ed047's Note - ask Pochettino and Emery

10.) 30 Nov 2019 16:59:41

EVERYONE was not calling for Mourinho’s head, I for one was not.


No let’s judge it on the goals they score as former players instead and that warm feeling you get when watching reruns.

11.) 30 Nov 2019 17:06:52
No they should be judged on the sales of pies at half time.

12.) 30 Nov 2019 17:07:22
Not the only but ultimately its what all managers are judged on in the end.

13.) 30 Nov 2019 17:11:01
Dodgy if that logic held true, lvg wouldn't have been sacked. He didn't lose the dressing room, yet he was sacked after the results did not go his way.

14.) 30 Nov 2019 17:23:13
DB i agree with you there mate. Jose had to go in fact he should have resigned when the window closed and begore a ball was kicked. But he wanted a pay off so was never going to resign.
I also agree that ole has not lost the whole dressing room. Matic pogba aside the rest still appear to be trying.
I mean fred periera jessie jones mata young rojo are never thing to go against him he played them most other managers wouldn't and they know that I'm sure.
He has time the club have made that clear but unless things improve he will run out of time.

15.) 30 Nov 2019 19:13:54
I know it's a cliché, but I think that result just shows there are no guaranteed easy games in this league anymore. Anyone on their day can get a result against anyone else in this league. The sooner we start to accept that, then the sooner we can make peace with the odd strange result.

16.) 30 Nov 2019 20:15:39
Mort id say that's fair with the caveat that there are some consistent signs of improvement.
Like i said the decision makers are remaining patient i think the next block of 4 league games could be defining. All 4 are winnable but also we could lose 3.

If we came through with 2 wins and 2 draws it could be the start of some momentum ole desperately needs but hasn't been able to get going all season.
On the flip side i can equally see a win a draw and 2 defeats. If that happens does that sort of return which will leave us probably around 14th 15th after half a season, test the decision makers patience even more.

I see this block of games as an opportunity for him to build momentum but i also thought that of our last 6 against traditionally much weaker teams. But we toiled against them for the most part.

It could go either way over the next 4 matches. Once again opportunity knocks to gain some momentum and confidence. Home game in Europe to try and top the group and an easy cup quarter final alongside those league fixtures. This is perhaps the block of matches that turns their season around.

17.) 30 Nov 2019 21:10:39
Dodgy, Red man is right he wasn't calling for José's head.

Of course he couldn't call for anything with his nose so far up José's backside he couldn't open his mouth 😂.

18.) 30 Nov 2019 23:00:12
a bit like yours up oles shappy.



12 Nov 2019 14:05:28
Never thought I would say this but Fred was actually very very impressive on Saturday, breaking up the play and a number of defence splitting through balls, as well as some nice little touches in small spaces to get himself out of trouble.

So we think a run of games has done him good as he has been improving gradually as the season has gone on or do you think this is a false dawn and he will go back to how he has been? A lot of talk how Ole hasn't improved many players over the last few weeks but I can name a few who are performing better now.

Interesting few weeks ahead to see if some of these players can continue to impress.


1.) 12 Nov 2019 14:33:23
Obviously meant Sunday, I've no idea what he got up to on Saturday but I was impressed by it.

2.) 12 Nov 2019 14:37:53
It's difficult to say with Fred. Certainly he hasn't been given a run of games to play himself into form up until recently. Which has coincided with a big improvement in his play.
Yet, he hasn't really shown anything even in glimpses in the EPL in the games he has played in last season.
His best games have tended to come in European games where the pace is slightly slower. Which suggests he struggles when the tempo is relentless and he doesn't have time. Yet, he has shown improvements in that regard recently.

Hopefully it is the start of him finding his feet and being a good player for us, but at the moment it's probably a little too soon to say. Fingers crossed though.

3.) 12 Nov 2019 14:52:23
a few of us always said he needed a run of games in the team, especially when the team was winning.

to be fair to him he hasn't moaned, has gone on with it and although not the best player you can tell he tries, he runs his balls off.

4.) 12 Nov 2019 16:22:20
I don’t think Fred will ever be a top quality midfielder, and he’s always at risk of a big mistake.

But credit where it’s due, he works hard and is happy doing the defensive grunt work. We are a better team with him in it, than with Pogba and deserves to keep his spot.

5.) 12 Nov 2019 16:46:35
Or probably he had the quality in him given that 2 of the all time greats saw something to go after him ( Pep and Jose) and he just needed a season to get going in the league. Not many foreigners hit the ground running immediately. Not everyone is Zlatan 😁.

Good that you said Ole has improved him. Just waiting for the day when Ole improves himself now and we can be back to the top 😄😄.

6.) 12 Nov 2019 18:37:34
Most impressive thing for me is his lack of whining and his apparent good attitude to hard work.

7.) 12 Nov 2019 19:30:42
I so with that shot had gone in, he deserved it. Right now the team looks lively, we have struggled when we have been lethargic. Stating the obvious I know but energy and pressing has made such a difference.

8.) 12 Nov 2019 22:12:51

I wonder where that went from last season as we had bags of energy when Ole first came in and it just disappeared weirdly even with the same players, very odd. The players have quality and if they use that energy we will have a chance in most games.


I didn’t say Ole has improved him just that when players don’t improve it’s his fault so when they do I think he has to take some credit.

9.) 13 Nov 2019 00:34:38
i would rather watch fred give his all than a half arsed pogba.

10.) 13 Nov 2019 06:16:46
Fred can pick some good passes and provides good energy in the midfield.
But his loose first touch can put him in trouble.

Credit to him for the improvement he has shown.

11.) 13 Nov 2019 16:54:42
There’s the conundrum GDS, the pressing seems to come and go, if we could do it consistently we will worry anyone as Liverpool found out.

Danny, I would have agreed but he keeps taking a step up and he continues then who knows? If we had a creative and talented 10 in front of Fred and McT then I think that would work well.



25 Sep 2019 22:54:41
Shahram / Torqs / Shan,

What do you all have to say about that? 6 goals banged past a tough Rochdale side. I've said all along we didn't need to buy anyone in the summer and I've been proved correct once again, this team will go far, the quadruple is still on and with maybe 1 extra player in January I think we have a great chance of going all the way this year.


1.) 25 Sep 2019 23:45:42
gds get used to it if we keep playing like we are that could be are new local derby.

2.) 25 Sep 2019 23:50:13
Nothing more satisfying than scoring all five penalties in a penalty shoot out. Well done.

Happy to see pogba back to his best too. Great to get back to winning ways.

3.) 26 Sep 2019 03:51:10
Yippeeee hip hip hurray! Dancing in the isles. Now that we have put the mighty Rochdale to the sword, i think i will visit the Taj Mahal, the Eiffel Tower, Disneyland, Antarctica etc etc etc.

Some of us are so pathetic that we are now celebrating things that were considered routine. Scraping through the minnows and first thing they do is come here and gloat.

Get a life.

4.) 26 Sep 2019 04:32:37
GDS. I know u are being sarcastic but you pretty much sounded similar during the window as well.

Most of your comments seemed like it did not bother you at all about how lame our transfer startegy was.

5.) 26 Sep 2019 05:32:48
We are going to rock from now on. Pog is back, 31 tries on goal. Against Rochdale only few teams can do that.

Hopefuly we will keep this form and smash the gunners.

6.) 26 Sep 2019 06:48:11
So, they’re dancing in Skye and Islay?

7.) 26 Sep 2019 07:26:16
They are dancing whichever side you look around, Tony. Its christmas for the United fans all around the world after all we beat Rochdale handsomely. It was a total end to end stuff they feel looking at the scoreline of 5-3 (they don't know its a penalty shootout score) . They are so upbeat about beating the minnows of Arsenal now that they have trashed the challenge of mighty Rochdale.

So yeah, they are dancing everywhere.

8.) 26 Sep 2019 07:57:53
GDS you just did a Mort :)

9.) 26 Sep 2019 08:42:08

No, I didn’t, that was the whole point of this post to show how ridiculous some of the posts aimed at me were.


If you couldn’t see that my post was a joke there’s no hope for you, I know sarcasm is sometimes hard to get by text but come on. Pathetic? Get a life? Haha.

10.) 26 Sep 2019 09:58:16
Srestha, you have already brought this up so why again? If Gds wants to be positive about things then that's his right, maybe in the long run it will turn out to be the right transfer strategy, the problem with the fans including me is we have no patience but we have to give this time or we will just keep going round in circles and nothing will change.

I hope soon garner will be integrated into the team as I agree that matic is finished, a midfield o Scott, pogba and garner I think has good potential but ole needs to start being braver with his selections. A win against arsenal and hopefully we can kick on and we as fans need to get behind the lads and believe that will happen.

11.) 26 Sep 2019 11:42:48
GDS 😂😂😂😂.

12.) 26 Sep 2019 12:50:35
Thanks GDS, thanks for letting me know that i am hopeless. Cheers! May be next life i will be you. I wanted to say next life i will be Ole but no point being in the same position again next life.

Get a life of course, because there are more things than gloating (sarcasm) about a win over a nobody and logging on to this page to showcase your sense of humour first thing you get home from OT.

13.) 26 Sep 2019 14:27:01

I wasn't gloating for God sake, it was a joke, we beat Rochdale on penalties!

I am not bothered what people think or what opinion they have and certainly not one to say i told you so after 1 win or whatever, especially as I keep REPEATING, I think the squad is short and we will be extremely inconsistent this season.

Perhaps chill out a bit, stop with the woe is me attitude.

14.) 26 Sep 2019 18:36:45
Ajh for a man like myself who doesn't check his own posts and has more spelling mistakes or wrong words in them than most i find you're recent spelling call iuts as a bit daft really.
Just another man in a glass house throwing stones. 😂😊😊.

Poch out 😉.


1.) 21 Sep 2019 16:40:37
I think you need the spurs page gds2. Posts like that don't belong on this page unless you are trying to make a silly point which makes you look a bit of an arse imo.

2.) 21 Sep 2019 17:51:03
Sheesh ken, it’s a banter page. Everyone seems so uptight today, Mort got it in the neck too.

3.) 21 Sep 2019 18:47:36
As long as we win tomorrow its a good result for us too.

But if it just to compare managers, let's sing Kumba ya.

4.) 21 Sep 2019 18:49:24
Wow Anthony you seem a bit uptight.

5.) 21 Sep 2019 22:22:03
I’m uptight? Read your reply to GDS, you seem positively clenched.



19 Sep 2019 22:36:51
Are the posts not getting through or did we win?

Wonder if this place would be so quiet if the kids hadn't managed to break them down.

Good on Greenwood, we have some player there, don't think I'm getting carried away when I say if he continues to develop the way he has he will be one of the best players in the world in 5 years time.


1.) 20 Sep 2019 00:05:36
6 players 21 or under.

Thought we were good tonight. Nice run out for players who ain't getting many games and great to see the young lads play

Hopefully they get more games throught the group stages of this competition as well as the leauge cup.

2.) 20 Sep 2019 00:14:03
Hard to tell against a bad team that sat in all game! Rashford should have scored a few but it was a good game for the youngsters to play.

3.) 20 Sep 2019 00:16:05
What’s there to say about it?

We played against a far weaker side at home, and just about did enough to win.

It gave a few young and fringe players to get some minutes, Greenwood got his first goal, and we didn’t drop any points. Great.

4.) 20 Sep 2019 01:57:17
Oh god yes I forgot the golden rule that we aren’t allowed to celebrate wins anymore, silly me.

5.) 20 Sep 2019 04:47:58
Think it's been a lot quieter in general GDS2. Popped into chat for a minute and hardly anyone was on.

6.) 20 Sep 2019 07:29:09
It was a good outing for many of the squad players.
The play was disjointed at times but it was expected since many of these lads have not played much.

Greenwood certainly made a case for himself.

7.) 20 Sep 2019 07:32:43
Come on danny, don't you know little clubs like man utd should be celebrating beating giants like FK Astana by a solitary goal like it is a title win. That is a great achievement that likes of city liverpool Barcelona or madrid could only dream of.

8.) 20 Sep 2019 08:57:22

Shows how far standards and expectations have slipped if we’re supposed to get excited scraping past European minnows.

9.) 20 Sep 2019 10:08:54
Always tricky to get a performance from players who haven’t played together or much football but the reality was:

Chong and Gomes only showed glimpses and failed to get themselves noticed. Missed opportunity.
Greenwood scored and so got noticed
Fred isn’t good enough.
Jones continues to look like a mistake is about to happen
Dalot impressed
Tuanzebe looks good but needs more minutes
Rojo works hard but lacks pace to be at left back
Romero is an excellent second goalkeeper.

10.) 20 Sep 2019 10:12:13
A win is a win. It builds confidence and allows the momentum to build up. Hopefully we can go on a good run.

11.) 20 Sep 2019 10:14:15
We scrape a home victory against a club from Kazakhstan, established ten years ago whose record signing was £1.8m.

Ordinary fans - it was good to see some of the youngsters get a decent run out.


12.) 20 Sep 2019 10:58:41
Get over yourself gds.

13.) 20 Sep 2019 11:06:29
People would of got excited if we had drawn the game.

I'm just over the hangover following our return to the big time Gds2.

15.) 20 sep 2019 12:30:33
gds2 "are the posts not getting through or did we win? " we did win but my last 4 posts aren't getting through - you probably wont see this either. lol.

{Ed033's Note - Looks like your posts are getting through now.

16.) 20 Sep 2019 12:49:31
Sorry but I'll celebrate united winning whether its 1-0 or 10-0, whether we've beaten Liverpool or Dunny-on-the-Wold. Its not lowering expectations its being happy your team won. Also we played several young players who could go on to be big players for us. That's exciting. Some bizarre people around.

17.) 20 Sep 2019 13:14:34
Ofcourse we must celebrate the win who ever we face.
It was an all home grown front 4 that started which was something rare and exciting.

18.) 20 Sep 2019 14:30:30
Best post on here, Mort.

19.) 20 Sep 2019 15:45:53
Cheers ED 33- don't know what's happened but all recent posts haven't been coming up? bet its brexit or ed woodwards fault lol.

{Ed033's Note - Must be either of those or whoever is framing Iran to try and get Trump to pull the trigger on Iran.

I don’t watch wolves that often but I thought Neves was one of the worst players on the pitch in the league game at OT, I was keeping an eye on him as people say he would be a good signing but all he did was turn and pass backwards all the time and kept getting caught out of position. Maybe it was just a bad day for him.

If it’s that boring then there is a way to just not look at it? It’s only boring because you’re following it from start to finish and reading twitter and this site, turn your phone off, enjoy your life and have a look on 31st January if we signed anyone. You can’t do something you don’t have to do then moan that it’s boring.

Agreed if that is how he feels and he can afford to not work, he's lucky to have that option so it is up to him. The positive tests mentioned in the OP don't affect that decision IMO as he will never be forced to go near anyone with the virus.

He wouldn’t have to spend any time with the people who tested positive until they are negative though so not exactly.

I enjoyed watching the matches, all looked pretty fit to me, except the Schalke players, maybe they need to be tested again, they were awful. Great to have football back, much needed in these times and the risk is so low it’s well worth it IMO.

Well done on doing your bit Shan.

I didn’t expect you to agree as you rate him, having watched him every week I just didn’t have the same opinion as you on him. Don’t think anything about what I said was ‘bizarre’, I am fully aware players don’t have to be great at attacking or defending to be an important cog in a team, he was an important cog in the team but not somebody irreplaceable. Like I said, worked hard with what talent he had and had some good games for us but too many average ones imo to be a player to take us to the next level.
