So Sanchez is unhappy with the summers recruitment so far.

Mort

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.

Lots of talk of Zlatan to LA Galaxy.

Mort

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.


 

 

09 Dec 2017 13:37:31
Lots of talk of Griezmann to Barcelona today. Fingers crossed.

Mort

1.) 09 Dec 2017 14:43:56
Glad to hear that, I don't rate him much and he cost too much. I prefer MU sign Paula Dybaya. He is class,


2.) 09 Dec 2017 16:11:15
So 89mn is now lot more than 150mn+.


3.) 09 Dec 2017 16:13:56
He had his chance last summer. Personally I would question his desire. Don't want him at United now. Ferguson wouldn't bother with him again. Hope Jose doesn't too. It shows we are weak if we do sign him.


4.) 09 Dec 2017 22:27:45
Dwelling on the past is a weakness. Comparing everyone to fergie is dwelling on the past. Believe in the current manager. I'm pretty sure he's in a better position than us to make a decision on who we sign.


5.) 10 Dec 2017 02:26:00
No he isn't redtash, that is heresy! People on here know much better. There are so many free top top top players available this summer. We need to sign them all and then Griezmann is the world class cherry on top. If they don't sign who we think they should then it is Woody or the Glazers who should go.


6.) 10 Dec 2017 03:47:14
Why is everyone against signing Griezmann. He's not a bad player is he?


7.) 10 Dec 2017 04:39:02
Griezmaann is a very good player but going by what Ed002 has been telling us about the positions Mr Mourinho would like to strength, I don't see the point of spending that money on him, as this will hinder other purchases and he will be played out of the position with less effective.

The CM we are interested will cost a lot, means Pogba will be moved foword as I don't see either mid we're interested sitting on the bench.

Better we spend the money on other positions we are weak, rather than on Griez and play him out of the position.


8.) 10 Dec 2017 06:48:16
Aren't we better off moving pogba to play as the attacking midfielder to free him up a little from the defensive duties and bringing in another box to box midfielder if mourinho is not happy with Herrera?


9.) 10 Dec 2017 08:22:45
I think that's what Mourinho intends to, has we have been told among of his priorities is a CM.


10.) 10 Dec 2017 08:25:55
I question his desire. He agreed to join United then cancelled it the last minute making the club look foolish. Saying he couldn't leave Atletico in the lurch. Move on from him.


11.) 10 Dec 2017 09:57:32
Yes he's a good player. But I question the mental side of his game. I question his attitude, his desire. His constant snipes at the English weather shows he's not committed to coming here. He messed us around for months saying he was coming only to drop it to show loyalty to a club who are now trying to force him out anyway because they need the big bucks. And the fans turned on him.


12.) 10 Dec 2017 11:07:28
Agree with Shane and Mort. We went out of the way to bid and yet got declined but from AM but the player himself. Time and ride waits for no man. Am sure better options around and not like we don’t have the money to pay.
On another note we could sign Ashley Young’s cousin for the wings - Ashley Younger 🤣🤣🤣.


13.) 10 Dec 2017 14:11:54
Nonsense he is class player and we should do our all the sign him as he would take us to the next level. Yes he opted against joining us once but that shouldn’t stop us going in for him again. Need to put this ego aside.


 

 

27 Nov 2017 13:33:27
There's still some rumours of Ozil and Willian floating around for January. Either or both would be an improvement.

Mort

1.) 27 Nov 2017 18:13:51
Really big fan of Willian. think he would be a fantastic signing. Ed002, I know you've mentioned he could be an option for us before. I can't remember if you said anything about him in the sharkopod so I am sorry to ask again, but is there any possibility Jose might turn to him again?

{Ed002's Note - There is a possibility but Chelsea would not sell until they have sufficient cover and have told one suitor that he is unavailable.}


2.) 28 Nov 2017 07:35:25
Many thanks for that ed.


 

 

07 Oct 2017 10:23:29
Linked today with signing Phil Neville's son. Anyone know anything about him?

Mort

1.) 07 Oct 2017 11:31:17
He's Gary Neville's nephew.


2.) 07 Oct 2017 12:41:42
Neville Nevilles grandson.


3.) 07 Oct 2017 12:56:13
He was originally in the man city academy and now plays for valencia youth team. He is highly thought of by all accounts.


4.) 09 Oct 2017 14:14:29
Tracey Neville's nephew as well.

Imagine if (and its a big if) we appointed Zidane.

"Right Mr Woodward to sort this midfield out I need a certain German playmaker. "

"No problem leave it to me. "

3 months of hardball negotiation later its deadline day.

"Mr Woodward I did not mean Pascal Gross. ".

Mort

1.) 02 Oct 2018 15:40:26
Funny and yet still a likely scenario.

On a side note Gross isn't too shabby.


2.) 02 Oct 2018 16:43:16
More like

"Right Mr Woodward to sort this midfield out I need a certain German playmaker. "

"No problem leave it to me. ”

*flips through his executive Rolodex*

“There you are Mr Schweinstager! ”.

{Ed007's Note -


3.) 02 Oct 2018 17:00:51
The funny thing is mort any new manager will need the same 5 or 6 players that jose was denied.
No manager is suddenly going to make jones valencia young darmian fellaini rojo mata herrera etc into players good enough to sustain a title challenge.


4.) 02 Oct 2018 17:30:18
Yes Ken I said the other day whoever comes in needs to clear out a lot of this squad. Some just aren't good enough and some are just trouble makers. And that's before bringing 5-6 players to sort out the issues. I just think that Jose was denied his players because Woodward looked at the ages of William an alderweireld and the costs and backed out. Hopefully we go back in for toby once that clause kicks in an the price drops. The biggest problem in this team is that we need a leader.


5.) 02 Oct 2018 17:49:47
maybe a new manager would bring a more entertaining style of play, more confidence to the players.

you can tell most of the players are that depressed at his negative ways they are afraid to do anything wrong, all jose does is bring them down.


6.) 02 Oct 2018 17:53:04
Exactly. This squad has been devoid of leaders for too long and it has led to the rot we have now. Until Woodard realizes you can't just have a team of youngsters with sell on value playing at a level of consistency to match the level of Manchester United, we will continue to see these problems. You need the right blend of experience and youth being led in the right way.


7.) 02 Oct 2018 18:35:35
Ill nail my colours to the mast now and the guy i would like to see takeover when jose leaves is kieran mckenna.


8.) 03 Oct 2018 01:38:36
That's funny Bond :D.

The state of Phil Thompson. 900k a week. Awful pundit. Arguably the worst on Sky and there's some stiff competition.

Mort

1.) 18 Aug 2018 14:44:32
900k a week?


2.) 18 Aug 2018 14:51:10
He just came out on sky saying that's what we pay Sanchez a week. He didn't like Jose's interview.


3.) 18 Aug 2018 15:25:07
Biased scouser has pop at Mourinho shocker. Don’t want watch the punditry, just the football action.


4.) 18 Aug 2018 23:47:16
have you seen how is nose gets bigger when he lies.


5.) 19 Aug 2018 07:23:16
Still one of my favourite chants from when he was the Liverpool Assistant Manager. Thompson stood oin the touch line shouting at players and to the tune of Bread of Heaven, the Stretfors End launched into ‘get your nostrils off the pitch’.


 

 

30 Jul 2018 12:48:13
If you think about Woodward has made 5 signings. Fred, Dalot, Grant, Fellaini and Kohler.

Mort

1.) 30 Jul 2018 14:57:26
😂😂😂 mort.


2.) 30 Jul 2018 15:32:54
He probably tried to sign a 6th player in 'Luke Shaw' but Shaw decided to 'earn his contract'.


 

 

24 Jul 2018 12:40:41
Ok let's assume Jose goes. Maybe he falls out with Woodward, maybe results plummet, maybe he gets a fortune cookie that tells him to go. Who do people see replacing him? Do you think Woodward would panic or has he got a plan this time?

Mort

1.) 24 Jul 2018 12:55:40
Woodward and plan Mort? Never! Lol. I actually think we'd go in for Jardim or Pochettino. But i really do hope Jose gets it right this season, 16 days left>2 of LB/ CB/ RW? He's come out and said he'd like two more players so we'll just wait and see.
What do you think of Jardin anyway?


2.) 24 Jul 2018 13:47:36
Hopefully not I think Jose will get the best out of Pogba this year! And with big Lukaku up front and Sanchez coming into a first full season we could definitely challenge city! #21times.


 

 

23 Jul 2018 17:10:11
So Ribalta is leaving then.

All 3 of them should go at the end of the season.

We should say thanks Jose but uts not worked ta-ra. Says Pogba but you want to go to Spain so here's the asking price. And Woodward should have the decency to say "it was my decision to appoint Jose so I'll step down. "

Moyes tried to sign Herrera and was linked with Shaw all through his tenure. So yeah i'd say they were his. The deals were almost done when moyes went. LvG agreed to complete them. As has been said by shappy the managers putting his list forward its on woody to get them. We've been told woody has a mystery advisor. I think woody also to an extent does identify signings. We know he's a commercial bean counter and we know he's obsessed with marque signings.

I think I said at the time van gaal wasn't responsible for most of his signings. I said along he didn't sign di Maria and falcao. That was on woody. Also most on here accepted Shaw and Herrera were moyes signings. As for moyes he wasn't backed and made one good and one bad signing.

I'm not making excuses for Jose. He has caused a lot of problems. But regards signings we don't know which are his and which aren't. Pogba again has woody all over it. No Jose wasn't going to turn down a player of his talent and the personality clash has led to issues.

If/ when Jose goes he needs to be followed by woody.

The amount of good games PP has had can be counted on captain hooks non sword arm. He needs selling but were reluctant because we can't get the asking price. We need to bite the bullet and consider a part-ex.

The midfield is woefully unbalanced. We all moan about matic but who else do we have for that role.

Mort
