Just found a piece of paper outside Old Trafford in a bin bag (was looking for dinner) and seen that Jose wrote a note to his dog saying he was close to signing Pogba. Truth lads, 100%.

You cannot beat bin food, best food in the world.

2.) 01 Aug 2016 20:40:38
Especially after a few pints.

3.) 02 Aug 2016 08:01:51
Now this is a genuine rumour I was waiting this whole transfer window. I don't believe anyone would disagree with it.

PS- These days at least you find something in the bin. I remember 3-4 years back when Anderson was still around, I always left disappointed.

Why is it not an Olympic event
"And the Bindipping Gold goes to Mpez"😆😆.

Rumours tonight of De Gea for Benzema, or Benzema for €40m. I'd happily do either of those two deals, would love to see Benzema at the club, and think he'd excel. Great number 9, can poach, head, and more importantly for ourselves, make his own goals.


{Ed025's Note - im a massive fan of his Mpez..

1.) 04 Jun 2015 23:50:52
This is actually one rumour I fully expect us to complete. Anything under 40 million, in today's world of inflated prices, is a bargain for a guy who is still only 27.

2.) 04 Jun 2015 23:59:15
Benzema or Higuain? Which suits United more do you think?

3.) 05 Jun 2015 00:51:25
Simon 23 is old in football terms mate

4.) 05 Jun 2015 04:27:09
Benzema by far, ODavis. Our team at the minutes problem, is that we cannot create enough chances for our forwards, which IMO is why Falcao had a dreadful season. Higuain is more along the lines of Falcao's style, whilst Benzema has everything.

5.) 05 Jun 2015 06:24:48
Jmb this is a recent trend.
Turn the clock back a few years, 26-27 was the age when players usually started to peak

6.) 05 Jun 2015 08:44:53
Roger Milla anyone? Legend!

7.) 05 Jun 2015 09:30:58
Dip - I was only joking mate. I was just having a wise crack about what someone posted a few days ago.

8.) 05 Jun 2015 10:23:49
He is the definition of being a complete number 9. A potentially awesome signing and would be the best striker in the League over both Aguero and Diego Costa. May also link up well with Di Maria.

9.) 05 Jun 2015 11:15:02
Would love us to sign Benzema but never better than Aguero

10.) 05 Jun 2015 11:25:50
Benzema would be a huge signing. The guy is a tank. Way better than Higuain Fingers crossed

11.) 05 Jun 2015 12:25:38
A fantastic signing IMO. I've said it before either Benzema or Lewandowski would be perfect for us. Both have all the attributes required and can provide something special at any given moment. If we are to lose Big Dave it would be an ideal transfer to receive Big Ben in return lol

12.) 05 Jun 2015 15:13:40
Benzema also fits the model of play at United and the PL. totally agree but wrestling him away will be a tough challenge!!

13.) 09 Jun 2015 19:09:27
I agree Benzema or Lewandowski would both suit us perfectly, and if . However, I do worry that Chelsea will snap up Falcao and he will bag a ton of goals in a team that creates lots of chances. Costa and Falcao are very similar, both have great positioning and finishing, as well great heading abilities, but rely on others to create chances for them, so I reckon Falcao would be incredibly dangerous in that Chelsea team. IF we signed Benzema, I assume that would be the end of the road for Van Persie?



24 Apr 2015 20:48:38
002, do you have any info on the news reported by Sky Sports Germany that Ilkay Gundogan to United has been agreed?


{Ed002's Note - It hasn't at this time.}

1.) 25 Apr 2015 09:51:24
Fantastic signing if it happens



31 Mar 2015 13:30:38
002, or any of the ed's who may know, bit of a lesser known player, but is there any interest from anywhere in the lad Omar Abdulrahman of Al Ain in UAE? Fella seems to be causing a bit of a stir.


{Ed002's Note - Not recently. Abdulrahman has been courted by Sporting Lisbon and Manchester City, spending time with both during the summer of 2013, Ajax, Lyon and Hamburg (and probably others) also expressed interest in the player last summer.}

1.) 31 Mar 2015 16:09:50
Is there any expectation that he'll be on the move any time soon?



11 Dec 2014 06:22:02
002, you mentioned the possibility of Bale being moved on (if they can do so), so may I ask where may lie interest in GB? Would a return to the premier league be most likely? Would we be interested? Would we be capable of getting him?

Cheers in advance!


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest in him at the price they would ask.}

001, now the manic period is over, on to bigger and better things.

I've been wondering, based off your statement recently regarding waking up in 3 hours to compile the report of the day.

Is running this website now your full time gig?

I remember when this used to be just one page, footballrumours. co. uk, and if it is now your full time gig i'm mighty impressed mate. Come a long way.


{Ed001's Note - yes mate it is, and it is very full time. It certainly keeps me busy! Cheers mate, it is always amazes me how far it has come.}

1.) 08 Aug 2019 20:47:58
To think everyone was going wow when Ian Wallace and Trevor Francis were sold for £1m, the transfer fees have just gone mad now ed, it's a changed game these days.

2.) 08 Aug 2019 22:52:04
Respect. I remember many a moon ago being sat in ICT in school with a mate of mine on this site every day (single site at that stage) in little old Northern Ireland, and now i’m a pig in even littler Gibraltar.

Live moves fast mate.

Big season required from Fred and Alexis.

If we get Fred adaptating to the league, as Lindelof did, we would have a great midfielder on our hands. Maybe the bosses are holding out for that before we splash on CMs.

Alexis. well. I mean if we get 75% of his ability, we'll be laughing. With our new style of play, and Alexis' suiting to No. 10, it may not be all so doom and gloom.

Bring on Sunday, I just want to watch United again. And have another excuse to get pis*ed.


1.) 07 Aug 2019 19:21:30
More than willing to give fred a second season to see if he has ironed out some of his clear deficiencies that were present last season.

But i really hope alexis is frozen out by ole even if he doesn't secure a move away in August. His performances since joining have been disgracefully poor and his sky high wages have caused disharmony amongst the dressing room.

Couple that with the pitiful self substitution against huddersfield and trips to chile to “recover” he has taken liberties that other players would have been crucified for.

Dan james, greenwood, ching, gomes and even dalot should be getting opportunities before him.

2.) 07 Aug 2019 19:42:05
Kieran McKenna recommended Fred after commenting on his performance for Shakthar in the 2017/ 18 CL against City.
This is also the reason why City were interested in the player.
Yes he has been poor. He did have one or two better games when Ole turned up.
Problem as always is adjusting to the PL and life in England.
Ole has said that there is a player in there and so perhaps we will see the real Fred this season.
This is the problem with all foreign signings that we may have to wait to see the best of them.
Hope he comes good as we really need this to happen.

3.) 07 Aug 2019 20:23:41
Fred is a liability, there is nothing to his game that is Utd quality. You can't teach first touch to a player at UTD. As for Sanchez i hope he at least scores 8-10.



06 Aug 2019 17:33:00
I cannot bloody wait for Thursday 6pm. This window has been so aggravating, i'm genuinely lacking interest now. We sign players, happy days. We dont, and I am beyond the point of caring.

The sooner sunday comes the better.


1.) 06 Aug 2019 18:44:23
Agreed mpez. But it is fun these last days. Well for me at least.

I think we've had a fine window and will be okay.

Just looking forward to how it plays out. Always fun and games watching ok as a fan.

2.) 06 Aug 2019 22:07:58
Don't wish your life away. Just have an offline holiday.



09 Aug 2018 10:51:36
Best of luck to all the Ed's today, i'm sure you'll be in overdrive all day. Wouldn't want to walk 10 foot in your shoes today, never mind a mile!


{Ed001's Note - cheers mate.}



02 Aug 2018 11:23:10
Genuine question, if Martial hadn't scored against Liverpool on his debut in the manner that he did (especially with the commentary bringing the hairs on the back of your neck to a stand) would we all as United fans be in adoration with him the way we are?

Let's be realistic, outside of his first season he has been pretty average for a player who is at one of the top clubs in the world, and if that is down to him losing his shirt number (for an equally as illustrious number) then he really needs to give his head a screw on.

If he was so well thought of in the football world as he is by Martial FC United fans, there would be a whole host of clubs throwing money at us.

Alas, here we are. Overrated.


1.) 02 Aug 2018 11:42:47
I don't think he is overrated. He has immense talent. But attitude seems to be a problem. He may also need a father figure kinda coach to groom him. Just my opinion though.

2.) 02 Aug 2018 11:49:18
So it's down to him losing his shirt number now.

3.) 02 Aug 2018 11:56:17
I’d agree with mbd he is very very talented and that’s why we as fans are frustrated. He is the first player we have had since Ronaldo (perhaps Nani) who gets the fans off their seats when he has the ball at his feet. He has the ability to go past players like they are not there and create something out of nothing. Unfortunately it seems he has a bit of an attitude problem and therefore needs to be handled in a different way than say the likes of Lukaku who thrives off criticism and it spurs him on the be better.

This is where Jose imo needs to adjust. I’m all for challenging the players and looking for a response. I love the idea of players running through a brick wall for their manager. But not everybody is like that. Some need an arm round the shoulder. That is why Fergie was the best. His longevity attributes to moving with the times and employing the best coaches, whilst knowing that Nani or Anderson needed an arm round the shoulder, whereas he could challenge Rooney or Rio to be the best they can be. I digress.

Going back to martial, his attitude does seem to be questionable and he will Waste his huge potential if he doesn’t fix up. If he had jesse or rashford’s attitude we would be seeing a player tearing the league apart. I don’t think it’s a case of Jose not rating him, he just isn’t able to get a response out of him that he wants. Both parties are to blame. And so parting ways may be the best option. But if martial thinks he will walk into Juve, Chelsea or spurs’ side he must realised that he will be expected to work just as hard to fight for his place. Personally I hope he stays and has a great season because he has all the talent in the world to do so.

4.) 02 Aug 2018 12:02:23
I wonder what changed after his first season?

5.) 02 Aug 2018 12:26:44
Jred, it’s well known that when Jose gave Ibrahimovic the number 9 shirt, Martial lost his head. No surprise that it’s since then he’s been a gurny wee gobsh*te.

6.) 02 Aug 2018 12:33:20
Martial is an excellent player and was our player of the season up until Sanchez was signed. Sanchez came in and he was shunted out of the team. It must have severely dented his confidence. Young players need to be man managed carefully and I feel Mourinho's management of younger players is absolutely awful. He needs to be more flexible with players. The same approach will not work with all players. This was Ferguson's biggest strength in how he could nurture the younger boys and help them flourish.

7.) 02 Aug 2018 13:05:04
Would lose no sleep it Martial was sold, not done it for us, not cz of Jose, not cz of LVG but because of his attitude on and off the pitch.

8.) 02 Aug 2018 15:05:12
I though he played his best football last season was in good form just before we bought Sanchez.

9.) 02 Aug 2018 15:26:02
Wasn't he involved in more goals per minute than any other player at the club last season? There or there abouts.

I don't think he's overrated, he's played in a system that does not suit his style at all. The slow and laborious football does not play to his strengths.

If he plays in a more attacking team I can see him scoring more goals, becoming more confident and killing teams as he gets a few years older.

I hope that's with United and not another club.

At the end of the day, Lukaku hasn’t worked out, and won't work out. Especially with the new style we’re trying to play.

Dybala is a fresh face, who suits the style we’re trying to play.

We all said we wanted a new RW/ AM, so now we’re potentially getting a top-class one we’re trying to pick holes in it.

Sometimes people can easily find faults in other, but are colourblind to faults of their own. Be happy, be excited. What will be will be, roll with it.

Doesnt make the cut at a seriously below average Monaco side, what makes him good enough to play for Manchester United?

You’re right GDS2, one player wouldn’t change anything. Just like if we hadn’t signed RVP we still would have won the league, absolute toff mate.

Joel Pereira will be going out on loan. He’s very highly thought of within the club, and they know he now needs game time to progress.

I think I seen somewhere, Romero is taking the 12/ 13 shirt.

Am I right in saying it was Monchi we were after, 002? Also, how is it possible a club the size of United have gone so long without appointing a DOF?


{Ed002's Note - No, and many clubs don't have or need a DoF - don't see this as a failing.}

Because they are interested to know. You can hardly talk about “getaliferumours” when you post on an anonymous football rumour page every day, and a hell of a lot more than most.

Think that was a very basic and bit*hy response from you, Tony. Needless in fact.
