Phil Jones to west ham and cash for Diop.


1.) 19 Jun 2019 19:04:23
Is this new developments Mort or the same story from two days ago?

2.) 19 Jun 2019 19:10:17
Would be lovely.

3.) 19 Jun 2019 20:25:54
Surely they should offer cash and diop for an England international with Premier League experience?!

4.) 19 Jun 2019 20:36:25
Plus JONES is a marketing dream machine. Those faces he pulls. pure GOLD.

5.) 19 Jun 2019 20:52:24
I would be over the moon if this is true.

But I would imagine the options would be:

Diop for 45m or Diop for 60m plus Phil Jones😂.

6.) 20 Jun 2019 01:13:01
Sorry but the deal should be Diop +60m for our man Jones.

A FA Charity Shield winner in 2011!

A Premier League winner in 2013 (I witnessed this so it is true)

A Europa Cup winner 2017.

He almost won the 2018 World Cup with England.

On 22 August 2011 against Tottenham Hostpur he played the entire match!

On 10 September 2011, Jones provided two assists for Wayne Rooney in United's 5–0 thumping of Bolton Wanderers again playing the entire match!

What more can you ask for? West Ham would be getting a Premier League legend.

7.) 20 Jun 2019 06:29:10
He can take corners too!

8.) 20 Jun 2019 09:15:42
Surely including Jones makes the deal less valuable to West Ham?



29 May 2019 23:09:20
Rumours of young to dc united.


1.) 29 May 2019 23:54:00
Fingers crossed.

2.) 30 May 2019 03:43:54
Who so ever has came up with this article has made a big joke on us. Wants to make fans super happy. A good banter I guess.

3.) 30 May 2019 08:40:41
We can only hope and pray!

I still expect him to be at OT next season.

4.) 30 May 2019 09:01:48
Wishful thinking. We have never really sorted things with our RB position and unless we sign someone with experience who can just come and slot straight into the first team, don't think Young is going anywhere. Probably his last year at the club anyway and that's the least we can be happy with.

5.) 30 May 2019 10:18:57
AMEN to that!

6.) 30 May 2019 13:30:21
Been confirmed that it's false news.

7.) 30 May 2019 14:45:18
Honestly cannot understand why criticism of AY is verbalised the way it is. As fans are you really that ignorant?
AY is well over the hill, no two ways about it but I struggle to think of another player in the current squad who gives 100% of their selves week in week out. He has been asked to do a job at RB and he’s given it his best.
Some of you need to have a long hard think about how you differentiate between ‘types’ of player and the criticism you throw about.
I would rather have 11 players lacking quality who love the club and give everything rather than a bunch of egotistical, lazy, overrated, self-indulging, overpaid waste of spaces. It makes my blood boil reading some of the unfair criticism that appears on here.
For god’s sake, if you want to have a pop at a player, do so for a lake of desire rather than quality because DESIRE is the one thing we need right now over anything else.

8.) 30 May 2019 14:56:02
Well said Giggsy.

9.) 30 May 2019 16:09:59
Well KG, I understand your sentiment but I would rather have 11 a bunch of egotistical, lazy, overrated, self-indulging, players who actually earn their money by delivering on their quality (not saying our current crop does this) rather than players lacking quality who love the club and give everything. If that is the criteria then we can get a starting 11 from this page each earning at most a tenth per month of what is currently being paid weekly.
It isn't enough to be committed, (Phil jones also comes to mind) you need to have the attributes and quality to back it, our Captain does NOT! He doe not deserve to start for us and maybe even does not deserve the bench.
It is about time we call a spade a spade.

Look at the RBs for the teams that finished top ten in the league and pick the worst performing ones.
City - Walker
Lpool - TAA
Chelsea - Azpi
Spurs - Trippier and Aurier
Arsenal - Bellerin and Niles
Utd - Young
Wolves - Doherty
Everton - Coleman
Leicester - Ricardo
Westham - Zabaleta / Fredricks

And even some from the bottom ten like AWB and the young Yan Valery. I am sorry but personally from what i saw this season, young should only be kept if he has any sort of positive influence in the dressing room.

10.) 30 May 2019 16:38:50
Thanks for the reply. You have completely missed my point. The player can only do what is asked of him by the team’s manager. If 11 players are picked (regardless of our opinion on their quality) then it is up to the player to give 100% and AY does that. If we were to pick a team purely on desire and commitment, he would be one of the first on the team sheet.
At this point in time I am well past the ‘he does not deserve to start for us’ based on his current ability view, and to be honest given the nightmares we have involved else where within the squad who are making a negative difference, I’m surprised any other United fan could be any different.

11.) 30 May 2019 17:08:54
I grasp your point perfectly, that was why I gave the example of jones who gives his all when he plays. There was no real bashing of young on this thread, but we all admit he is past it and we need to better that department. Maybe AY was being picked because we don't have any option.
To elaborate on my point of preferring the players with quality, we can take Hazard as an example, he has been flirting with Real Madrid more that half his career with chelsea be it just rumours or misguided utterances, that however never stopped him from being a professional and delivering when called upon.

12.) 30 May 2019 18:31:43
Pogba, Lingard, Rashford, now Young. It seems posters are gradually working their way through the whole team.

13.) 31 May 2019 11:04:43
Well said KG.

It is not Young’s fault that he has outlasted savers new signings under a number of managers.

Perhaps the frustration should be pointed towards our recruitment and decision making rather than somebody who is doing a job they are asked to do.

14.) 01 Jun 2019 18:34:16
When players hit their thirties you start resting them and managing their fitness levels. Saf always knew that which is why he got a lot out of his older players.

Young and Valencia should have been managed more correctly in the last few years, especially since they play at such physically demanding positions. They are both burnt out now though, and good time for them to leave.



15 May 2019 19:10:59
Talk Sanchez agent been in talks with Inter and Juventus. Wages stumbling block currently.


1.) 15 May 2019 19:37:29
His next move says a lot. Bet he stays and picks up the moronic wage we gave him.

2.) 15 May 2019 19:59:20
I think he will move. I think it will cost us but i doubt he will be here come next season.
Rash martial and jessie will stay i think and i guess mata lukaku and sanchez will leave this summer.

3.) 15 May 2019 20:59:28
Yeah, can't see how he stays. I think it will cost the club dearly but they'll move him on.

I'd imagine Ken if those 3 do go, there will be 2 incoming. Quick and agile forwards who can interchange I'd say. It's the way forward.

4.) 15 May 2019 21:02:23
I would keep Mata as he is one of the good guys to have around the dressing room.

5.) 15 May 2019 21:39:19
If Sanchez and Lukaku go then I'd be line to keep Mata for one last season. But apparently he wants 2 years. Personally I'd let him go. Too slow, doesn't offer enough on the pitch. But good to keep around the training ground.

6.) 16 May 2019 10:59:18
Tired of this good guy around the dressing room, given the state of our team i would suggest he barely has an impact at all. We cannot afford to carry nice guys for the sake of it. This squad is terrible we need players that can perform on the pitch as well as impact the dressing room. Mata is neither of those.

7.) 16 May 2019 15:22:54
Fantastic idea to have a nice guy around the dressing room for £5 to £7 million a year. let's bring a court jester in too while we’re at it.

8.) 16 May 2019 18:46:06
Singh i doubt you have ever been in the dressing room.

9.) 16 May 2019 19:11:52
Very true Ken but i am just going by what i know of him through the media. He could well be a nob. 😂😂😂.

10.) 16 May 2019 20:35:11
Nice bloke by all accounts singh😂.

11.) 17 May 2019 02:47:17
Nice guys are a bit of a luxury for us at this point.



08 Aug 2018 18:15:15
So Sanchez is unhappy with the summers recruitment so far.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 18:31:51
How did you come up with that?

2.) 08 Aug 2018 18:33:23
Players don’t want to go to Utd, Utd players don’t want to be here, Jose doesn’t like being here,
Glazers are going to have to dig deep to get out of this mess they’ve made,
3rd season for Jose, I’m normally upbeat on the Jose revolution at Utd, but for the 1st time since Fergie first came from Aberdeen, I’m genuinely worried where we’re going, I hope I’m wrong.

3.) 08 Aug 2018 18:50:14
It's starting to get really worrying now if we end up with boateng were in real trouble.
the guys more injury prone than any of our defenders
I can see this going only one way and that's looking for a new manager come Xmas.

4.) 08 Aug 2018 19:07:53
wwe haven't kicked a ball this season. had a preseason with hardly a first team squad. get a grip lol.

5.) 08 Aug 2018 19:23:29
Wow this place is depressing, getting embarrassing now.

6.) 08 Aug 2018 20:08:50
Lots of winnable games at the beginning of our fixture list. A few good results and the mood will soon change.

7.) 08 Aug 2018 20:46:35
A comment online attributed to Sanchez.

8.) 08 Aug 2018 21:21:43
Hi all,
Thanks to the Eds as always.
Reading some of this really is depressing, some of our fans are the worst around. It very much is a ‘it is what it is’ situation and as fans we need to try and be much more positive. Has everyone forgotten Leicester? Anything is possible and until 10-15 games have passed this season none of us really know anything. It most certainly isn’t a case of ‘worried where we’re going’, try and enjoy life a bit more. It’s too short and if you don’t enjoy supporting the side, support someone else.
Much love.

9.) 09 Aug 2018 00:31:18
What an arrogant statement to make. Just because some fans don’t like what’s happening with our club and voice their opinion on here it doesn’t make us the worst around or plastic fans.

I’ve been a season ticket holder some 1982 and car a few seasons when I was playing myself or away in the military I don’t miss many games Home or away. I think I’m a pretty loyal and patient fan and don’t have any entitlement to success but I do believe in doing things the right way.

Bring through youth and it’s happened since before Fergie, and most of all trying to play attacking football.

I don’t always demand shiny new players, in fact I think bar one of two positions we have a really good squad.

The issue is the manager, the owners have given him huge amounts of money to spend and frankly he hasn’t spent wisely or has spent it on players I presume after scouting them and tries to change the way they play. Mkhitaryen, pogba, Sanchez didn’t play the way he wants them to at their previous clubs. If I were Woodward I’d be seriously doubting whether to give him even more money to waste on 29 year olds with little sell on value when there’s other clubs buying better, developing better or shock horror merely getting the most out of the players they have.

Worst of all is his constant undermining of players confidence and abilities with his barbs and criticisms in the press. That’s not how you manage any employee in any business and it’s ceetainkg not how you manage multimillionaire professional sportsmen.

The man is outdated and becoming increasingly narcissistic. That’s my opinion and one that I’m entitled too. T might not make everyone agree with me but it also doesn’t mean I’m totally wrong either. But to tarnish everyone that doesn’t share the same view as being somewhat less of a fan for daring to disapprove of the manager is a disgrace.

I spend a huge amount of money following united and I’ve already given my ticket away for fridays game. For once united will Not be my priority this season and that’s because his style of football and his terrible attitude have turned me off. I’m saddened that it’s come to this but it does not make me a second rate fan. I just don’t see why I should spend my leisure time watching outdated boring football.

10.) 09 Aug 2018 09:59:29
I think Giggsy doesn't realise that other people have opinions too? I live in France now so don't get to OT now, so its TV for me. which is great as I can turn Joses borathon off when it gets too much for me. Our club is a mess!

11.) 09 Aug 2018 10:35:12
Superb post, Airforce. Nailed it for me.

12.) 09 Aug 2018 20:10:31
It’s utterly ridiculous. It’s an embarrassment. I’m not sure what some people prioritise! Football or transfers. It’s all becoming so artificial, 24hours and Sky will show the “who spent the most” league table so we can all whinge relentlessly about Woodward, the Glazers or Jose depending on your toxic point of view.



29 Jan 2018 16:27:46
Lots of talk of Zlatan to LA Galaxy.


1.) 29 Jan 2018 16:39:00
It makes sense, I think Sanchez is his replacement as such. One large wage coming onto the wage bill it makes sense to move one off. Sadly I don't think Zlatan will ever get back to his best after that injury. I think the MLS is the best move for him now. I wish him the best and will always remember what he did last season.

2.) 29 Jan 2018 18:12:47
Totally agree shappy.

I was just typing a similar thing.

They were great to watch.

Some superb players.

It has been a joy to watch.

2.) 28 Jun 2019 07:51:39
Totally agree Mort. Brilliant leader, great defender, positioning is immaculate as she reads the game so well.



26 Jun 2019 16:24:59
Rumours abound of a move for high energy Irish midfielder Luke O'Zade. Ole thinks he'll add some fizz to the side.

Could be a double signing as also looking at striker Rick O'Shea.


1.) 26 Jun 2019 16:48:40
Love it Mort haha.

07 Jun 2019 13:52:04
What do Barcelona see in Rashford that our fans don't?


1.) 07 Jun 2019 14:05:22
Potential perhaps.

2.) 07 Jun 2019 14:08:39
It's the highlights, it all looks good until you see him shoot without any thought from any where on the pitch everytime he gets open not to mention the rugby free kicks. They never show the rugby fk's in the highlights.

3.) 07 Jun 2019 14:47:12
I read somewhere the other day, he had 112 shots 48 were shots on target,
As a striker on goals for the season he finished way down the pecking order in the league,
25th in the league he was for goals.

4.) 07 Jun 2019 15:11:17
At least he’s having a go! If Barcelona are keen, we closely have a talented player on our hands. Lay off him.

5.) 07 Jun 2019 15:13:16
He’s dreadful, we should get rid immediately to whoever is stupid enough to take him.

6.) 07 Jun 2019 15:18:10
He needs to be lass rash and be more Calmford instead. Its an area to improve. But very few players were the finished article at that age.

7.) 07 Jun 2019 15:53:21
We should keep him, as long as we are happy with europa league.

8.) 07 Jun 2019 16:17:40
Very good Mort.

I agree, give the lad a break.

We've spent silly money on forwards yet Rashford is the one carrying the burden of scoring the goals for the team. Frustrations should be aimed at Sanchez and Lukaku, not Rashford. We've invested millions yet the home grown kid is keeping some of our biggest signings out of the side.

9.) 07 Jun 2019 16:43:17
Barcelona want him, Dr Ligt named him as his toughest opponent.

But the lads crap according to the fans. I mean what does one of the best clubs in the world and a professional footballer know about football?

The lad is 21, no footballer is the finished article at 21. If he didn't have areas to improve on then he would be a phenomenon.

10.) 07 Jun 2019 17:38:14
Alcacer, dembele, andre gomez, vermaelen, arda turan. Just some of the big money failed signings by one of the best clubs in football Shappy. De Ligt is himself 18 so his opinion should be naught given that 21 Rashford shouldn't be considered a finished article.

Wazza, today was a long day at work but your joke did make me laugh. Rashford carrying the burden of scoring goals is really funny. Perhaps someone needs to tell him that shooting from 100 yards everytime you get the ball at your feet and actually scoring are now being considered different in football. didn't Lukaku outscore Rashford this season even when Ole almost froze him out?

11.) 07 Jun 2019 17:41:40
I can't believe what I'm reading. He's very young. He frightens defenders, has pace and skill. But our fans have already turned on him as he's not performing to Ronaldo standards.
Give the guy a break, his decision making and shooting will improve, so suggest you turn your gripes to Sanchez and Martial who have been truly awful.

12.) 07 Jun 2019 17:59:54
I think my main gripe with Rashford is how he's evolved over the last couple of years. He exploded onto the scene taking on defenders with pace. He played with no fear. There was a humbleness about him. He's completely changed his game from what got him here in the first place.

He used to just run, run and run at defenders all day. Now he slows the ball down, almost the way Best did it. It's almost like he's trying to be Ronaldoesqe with the tricks and flicks. His insistence on shooting from every free kick sums up his attitude. In a team with no leaders he has gone down the wrong path. He seems cocky, not a good trait for someone who still has a lot to prove.

There's a player in there but right now he's not good enough to start week in week out for a team with aspirations of challenging for top honours.

13.) 07 Jun 2019 17:37:07
he needs to played as a regular forward with players who create chances for there strikers.

hes got the pace and strength give him 12-18 months of working on his finishing under a manager who was clinical in front of goal and come back on this page with what you think of rashford.

ed do you know if we are planning on contract talks with him at some point with him having only a few years left on his current deal.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea about contract talks I am afraid.}

14.) 07 Jun 2019 18:17:39
Terrible attitude on him 😁.

15.) 07 Jun 2019 20:10:03
So is he ready to lead the line for man united if not how many more seasons do we give him while we wait in europa league,
One of rash or lukkaku need to go.
We can't have 2 passengers up front.

16.) 07 Jun 2019 21:29:36
Thanks for the reply ed.

17.) 07 Jun 2019 21:51:52
For goodness sake it's all now now now. The same toxic fans on here would be bashing 18/ 19 year old Ronaldo for being a show pony. "Hes got no end product, get rid". Players mature at different rates. There's a reason Barcelona are after him, a reason Southgate trusts him so much and a reason his fellow pro's rate him so highly. He was only given a proper run at CF midway through this season, and he was fantastic for the first few games. Sure his form dipped but so did the whole teams. Some players don't break into the first team til 21, lay off the kid.

18.) 07 Jun 2019 22:30:15
Rash is a good player. He appears to have a good attitude. He will improve when we have a better midfield and wide players with better movement.
Im relaxed on rashford. I think we should sign an experience goal scorer to back him up if lukaku and sanchez leave. Let martial james and lingard and hopefully another fight it out for the wide positions.

19.) 07 Jun 2019 22:56:02
I think Barcelona like the big gold chain with “Rashy” on it whereas most of us think that is a bit cheap! 😂

On a serious note we need to keep him for one or two more seasons before we pass judgement.

20.) 07 Jun 2019 23:28:10
I like rash and I hope he gets us 30 goals a season, but my question is how long do we give him, I heard the same story about welbeck, give him a chance and he will come good,
Shappy I don't know what your on. About, you put a picture of him up here looking to get a reaction from posters, give the lad a chance will you
We need a striker that can get 20 goals plus in the league, we are one of the biggest clubs and the richest in Europe, so for me we should have the best players not average ones.
If we want to get back to winning the league we have to be ruthless.
Get rid of players that don't want to be here and players that aren't good enough.
But the same posters will be moaning next season we aren't good enough the players aren't good enough.
Now I have no problem keeping rash but he needs to up his game, he is a man now not the child some make him out to be. What was Ryan giggs doing when he was 21,ripping the league and defences apart, wasn't he lucky the snowflake generation weren't around back then or he wouldn't have got the chance he got when he was about 4 years younger that rashford.

21.) 08 Jun 2019 17:35:03
Not good enough, should cash in why we have the chance. Rocks up 1 game in 10. Scoring record worse than Glenn Murray, contributions to play are worse than Glenn Murray - I genuinely think we would do better with Glenn Murray!

Such tragic news. Rip.

Ole's request to sell Martial apparently rejected by Joel Glazer as he see's him as United's Pele.

However reports are unconfirmed that on hearing this Woodward immediately attempted to sign Pele.


1.) 22 May 2019 08:57:55
Pretty sure he means that Martial plays like Pele would now.

I'd get rid of all four of them to be honest over the next three windows counting this one.

Bed in Maguire/ whoever and Tuanzebe this season, sell two of them. Then next summer sell the other two and look for signing.

For those who watch the academy are there any other centre back prospects?

I don't even think he's really that talented. Everytime I watch one if his games he's too busy rolling around. When did you last see him actually use his talent. Also both messi and Ronaldo can be petulant as well. Just neymar goes the next level.

Sanchez, no impact until a January departure probably to China.

Breakout player, everyone's going to say Greenwood. Tempted to say the same but if he gets game time I think Gomes will impress.

Top scorer, Rashford. 25 all competitions.

Player of the year, tougher to call. Pogba if he stays and doesn't sulk. Or Lindelof, Wan-Bissaka, Rashford, outside shout McTom or James.

I do think Longstaff has good potential but not at that price considering things. I honestly do feel they'll be in the mixer this season.
