Signing to be completed tomorrow. Hannibal Mejbri from Monaco. 10 million fee.


1.) 31 Jul 2019 22:00:09
16 years old isn't he? A lot of money too.

2.) 31 Jul 2019 22:34:17
Yes 16. I know nothing on the kid but must have some potential for that fee.

3.) 31 Jul 2019 23:15:56
He’ll bring some bite to our midfield in the future.

4.) 01 Aug 2019 01:04:20
i thought for a moment mort you said hanibal lectuer.

5.) 01 Aug 2019 06:36:22
He’d bite our hands off for a good deal.

6.) 01 Aug 2019 06:55:09
I have watches Mejbri very closely over the last 2 seasons. The lad has great potential. Very mature for his age. Has 2 feet, can pass the ball. He also has a head do should be good in the air too.
Obviously at his age he will need coaching, so it is down to Ed Woodward to develop him, but he could be a future captain and play for at least another 10 years.
Very excited about this one.

7.) 01 Aug 2019 08:13:33
Betty, I’m relieved that a player we are interested in has two feet and a head. It shows that we have a plan regarding our transfer policy.

8.) 01 Aug 2019 12:27:01
Let’s hope he’s hungry for success.

Signing to be completed tomorrow. Hannibal Mejbri from Monaco. 10 million fee.


1.) 31 Jul 2019 21:11:11
That came out of left-field, alright.

2.) 31 Jul 2019 21:26:22
Well if its one transfer at atime on to the next.

3.) 31 Jul 2019 23:36:41
He’s a youngster, another one for the future.

4.) 01 Aug 2019 05:43:33
Not really noucamp, the first reports of our interest came a few months ago. Mejbri and his agent/ family wanted his contract at monaco unilaterally cancelled and went to the french fa, i think we were just waiting to see if we could get him for free, since that didn't pan out, we have now negotiated a deal with monaco.



21 Jul 2019 14:09:53
Rumour that deal for Maguire is finalised. Medical on Tuesday.


1.) 21 Jul 2019 14:41:30
Hope your right Mort.

2.) 21 Jul 2019 16:32:18
Wow two medicals after his rumoured medical last Wednesday. The club really don't want another crocked centre back do they 😂.

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?

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.

29 Dec 2019 15:18:01
I feel Haaland has made the right move. I rate him and we do need a player like him, who can finish scrappy chances. But I feel its better age his age he goes to another club to finish his development. Dortmund are a selling club and raiola will be moving him on in 2-3 years.


1.) 29 Dec 2019 15:31:19
I'd be worried that our manager can't convince the kid who he gave his debut to, to join Manchester United.

2.) 29 Dec 2019 15:32:21
Yeah sure great move on his part. He will suit BvB style of play.

We will just end up the idiots paying £100m for him in 3 years when we could have got him on his £18m release clause.

3.) 29 Dec 2019 15:45:26
Yeah, I thought they shared an unbreakable bond.

4.) 29 Dec 2019 15:54:16
Apparently we backed away because of Raiola's demands but anything to bash the manager huh mumbles.

Kurtis as I said Dortmund are a selling club and Raiola is always hawking his clients around. He'll move in 2 years. If we end up paying 100 million then we'll be getting close to the finished article. Not a young player which isn't necessarily what we need right now.

5.) 29 Dec 2019 15:56:33
Over the moon we haven’t succumbed to Riola’s outrageous demands. Might become a worldie but I ain’t convinced. Greenwood has far more potential.

6.) 29 Dec 2019 16:28:36
I'm pretty sure ED002 said it would be a fee of £80 million, or around that mark.

I think the release clause was the Leipzig aswell, as Salzburg areca feeder club.

{Ed002's Note - Plus €15M in agent fees - but this is an entirely different arrangement.}

7.) 29 Dec 2019 16:31:54
I said it before, Dortmund would be the best move for his career. Almost guaranteed starter, playing UCL football and challenging for titles at a club renowned for developing young players, in a league with less spotlight and pressure.

We couldn't have signed him for the 18m, that clause was for very specific purposes that we couldn't take advantage of. For us the fee was supposedly 60-70m to his club plus whatever Riola wanted for facilitating the move.

Great talent, and likely to become a star player. But not what we need right now. We have Greenwood who has similar if not more potential. We need a finished or near finished article. Someone who can play with their back to goal and create chances for our wider players.

I think this is the right move for everyone involved.

However, another way to view this is that Dortmund signing Haaland is a way to bring in a top young player and placate the fans for if/ when they sell Sancho.

{Ed002's Note - Right.}

8.) 29 Dec 2019 16:35:46
Many of you Ole fans out there are happy to give the man time to further cement us into mid table mediocrity.

A young player has picked Dortmund over Manchester United. The manager who gave him his professional debut couldn't convince the kid to join us.

It will funny to read your transfer wish lists soon when you put Sancho, Maddison, Rice and any other young decent footballer on it. Why would they join?

Every game we're bullied by a relation fodder team. Every press conference our manager spouts nonsense. Every young player that turns us down. That's all just another ingredient to cementing us to mid table mediocrity.

9.) 29 Dec 2019 16:39:55
Its impossible to say Greenwood has more potential but I think with his emergence we could definitely prioritise other areas and Dortmund is a good move for him to prove himself I'd imagine Sancho will be leaving. It would be great to see us bring in a top quality cm if at all possible in January.

10.) 29 Dec 2019 16:40:32
I haven’t seen Haaland play, however, it has to be concerning given Ole’s apparent interest and previous connection, plus our need for a striker, that the player chose elsewhere. Perhaps it indicates Haaland wasn’t that impressed with Ole, or it could relate to Riola. People will see what they want to.

11.) 29 Dec 2019 16:57:49
It will be a very unhappy world if you react like this to every flipping transfer that we don't complete.

The parties will have looked at it and made a decision based on what is best for them. The fee quoted above is an incredible amount of money. We have been scoring plenty of goals with one of the best looking front lines around. Martial, Rashford, James/ Greenwood look very capable.

Maybe we have chosen other priority positions. Maybe Ole refused to guarentee 1st team football, maybe he wanted guaranteed UCL, maybe he vowed he will never play for Man Utd because of history with his dad, maybe Utd couldn't guarantee Ole future. There could be hundreds of reasons, not all of them match this Ole bashing story line that so many are keen to propagate.

We may never know. But his choice of next club certainly seems a good one for his development.

Personally I would be much happier seeing a maddisson type signing, and if Pogba's leaving another CM.

12.) 29 Dec 2019 17:02:51
Mumbles it was Utd who chose not to pursue at the prices quoted by Riola. A bit of sense for once.

13.) 29 Dec 2019 17:17:21
Mumbles he is not something we need we have Greenwood.

It's a no brainer for us not to get him we don't need another young forward. he woukdnt have got a sniff in our starting 11

Regardless of his goal record in the austrian league.

Let's see how he does in Germany with better defenders and better teams

Imagine paying 72 million you wouldn't be in up roar complaining about how daft we are paying that much

To be honest any player of that agent we should stay clear of.

14.) 29 Dec 2019 17:38:53
Your comment sounds so silly Mumbles.
80m fee is outrageous for a player who is proven for half a season.
And that too in a fairly inferior league.

15.) 29 Dec 2019 17:47:18
How many players has Ole come out and said "We're interested in him". He flew to meet him. Spent a couple of hours chatting with him, and the lad still turned us down.

After that meeting, Ole came out and said "the player knows what he's going to do".

Why would Ole go to meet the player if we weren't interested in paying the fees for Him? Did the player tell Ole "I'll sign for you" and then we wouldn't pay up? Or was he told at that meeting "I'm going to Dortmund"

I'm not that pushed on not signing Haaland. i'm angry because it's a rubbishshow from the outside. It shows yet again we can't get a deal done.

Ed002 alluded to the fact that higher ups at United had a expensive decision to make in regards to Oles future. Either back him or sack him. Looks like we'll do neither. Just happy to be filling inches on the back page of the paper with half arsed interest in players.

{Ed047's Note - from my perspective you are nowhere near the attractive proposition you once were.

I think that’s why you’ve reverted to young English potential but a club of your stature needs some of the best quality.

Pogba in reality is really the only big big name to arrive but has failed miserably to cut it in the Premiership which ever way you’d want to argue that.

16.) 29 Dec 2019 18:23:32
So it's the board's fault, now? It was Ole's in your opening post?

{Ed047's Note - you guys, what are you like!

Saying that you were all still arguing when Fergie was here and you were winning. 🤪

17.) 29 Dec 2019 18:27:07
I think that's fair Ed but I think certain people would've moaned about Haaland whether we signed him or didn't. Anything to throw a negative spin on things.

{Ed047's Note - it’s so difficult when all you all want is a return to better times.

It’s going to cause friction no matter what happens.

18.) 29 Dec 2019 18:35:56
Ed047, I was just about to post the same thing, mate. How we're on a decent wee run, and people still come on here trying to start arguments about a kid who didn't sign for us. It's like some people feel uncomfortable with a bit of peace and calm and need a bit of drama 😁

He's complaining it'll cost us 100m to buy him back from Dortmund in a few years, when he's actually proved his worth, but would be happy spending 80m odd on him now, after doing well in Austria and really having proven relatively little and not exactly being up at the top of our list of priorities just now.

Nice deflection, tho Ed 😁.

{Ed047's Note - I do my best Nou! 🤪

19.) 29 Dec 2019 18:57:34
In fact, I apologise to Mumbles. It was Kurtis who was complaining about buying him for 100m in a few years. Too many Cuba Libres today 😁.

20.) 29 Dec 2019 19:49:32
You win some you lose some. Imo signing another cf at 19 to compete with Greenwood 18 and martial at 23 does not make sense really.
But that's just a personal opinion on squad structure as opposed to his ability.
A more experienced player as a3rd option would be my preference.

Midfield no10 and rw are the priority areas imo.

21.) 29 Dec 2019 19:54:35
No one knows what the figures quoted were, but if they were trying to rip us off, then I for one, am happy that we didn't pursue the deal. There are other options like Martinez and there will always be young players coming on the scene.
I think midfield, no10, and Rw are the priorities, and if we can get a good young striker in the summer, then that's great.
I agree with Nou on this, he's played one year in a very average league and did very well, but that doesn't mean that he'll be s hit in Germany, though I feel that he will. I wish him well, and we move on.

22.) 29 Dec 2019 20:08:24
As I said, I'm not pushed on not getting the player. You guys can make all the excuses you want but the fact Is, Ole said we were interested, he flew and had meeting with him and the kid decided it would be better to play his football at another club.

My point is and also what ed has alluded to, football won't stand still for Man Utd and Ole Gunnar to ditch the stabilizers and find his feet. He wasn't the first and won't be the last to choose another club. But another year or two in the Europa league and players won't care about a goal scored in 99. They will barely be able to remember the class of 92. There will be 30 clubs ahead of us in the pecking order to sign talented players instead of 5 or 6.

You lot are a sensitive bunch. Ole wins two games and you think all is well again. Some people are just happy with mediocrity I guess.

23.) 29 Dec 2019 21:23:10
I kind of get Mumbles point but you need to not follow what Ole says and the media in general.

Its a very good move for Haaland and i didn't wanr him anyway because we have too maby young forwards.

24.) 29 Dec 2019 22:42:54
As soon as you said ‘many of you Ole fans’ I kind of gave up, we are all Manchester United fans and want the club to do well. It isn’t just 2 wins that people are talking about saying we have improved, we’ve lost 1 in 9 and we are scoring a lot more goals and seem to have found a way to break some teams down as well as win against the better teams. Got to give Ole some credit for that imo, whether you are a ‘fan’ of his or not.

25.) 29 Dec 2019 22:55:15
Who said anything about accepting mediocrity?

So what if Ole met the lad and he went elsewhere. It happens. How many players did Fergie meet who went elsewhere?

We didn't end up paying the stupid money asked for so he went elsewhere. Onwards.

26.) 29 Dec 2019 23:25:52
70m+ on a kid who has Had one good half season in the Austrian league when we have young
Forwards doing well in Rashford, Martial and Greenwood emerging would have been utterly ridiculous. Invest it in a much needed area of the team i.e attacking midfielder (Eriksen) or RW (Sancho) in this window.

27.) 30 Dec 2019 01:15:36
Juve wanted him so what does it say about them?
17 mil is a great deal for BD.

28.) 30 Dec 2019 05:10:08
Our first and the most important priority should be a no 10 who can create more opportunities for the likes of Rashford, Martial and Greenwood.

A RW and a midfield general should be next on the priority list.

29.) 30 Dec 2019 09:21:34
I read the deal was around the 50 mill mark with 15 mill to Railoa anf then a relase clause comes into play in the 3rd year of the contract.

Think its a good move for the lad. A step up to a good league and to a team that had been crying out for a proper cf as Paco is always injured. Its a club where he is guranteed minutes and I don't think we can do that here. We still need another wide forward too.

Quite happy to tell Raiola to piss off for his 15 mill and get rid if Pogba in the summer. We then need 2 midfielders, a wide player and maybe another cb. i'd also be looking at selling DDG while wr can get a price for him and get Henderson back. I think that if Ole is here in the summer.

30.) 30 Dec 2019 09:23:43
Sorry presses reply too early.
If Ole is still here in the summer then we will see some big changes in playing staff and we might get back in track. 2-3 seasons until we challenge again but Rashford, AWB etc will be ready then.

31.) 30 Dec 2019 11:24:10
@mumbles hahaha some people are happy with mediocrity. And I think some people are just never happy at all.

Jeez, u really don't like Ole huh, but that's your opinion and as much as I disagree with it, I do respect it.

Also, deals collapse sometimes, that's a fact! It's not always an indication of impending doom or some bigger picture. If there's one thing that most clubs have in common is that they've all lost players one way or another. and call me crazy but I think in the last 2 decades we have lost the most (deals breaking down and what not) .

Lastly, tis the season of happiness so cut it out :) . I'm sure you'll have a lot of ammo against ole in the future (although I hope not) so stop clutching at straws.

Peace and a happy new year to this dysfunctional yet awesome family here :) ) )

32.) 30 Dec 2019 14:51:01
Players even turned us down under Fergie. Imagine!

33.) 30 Dec 2019 17:17:37
@ noucamp precisely! Even Sanchez did, when he actually had the legs and the sharp mind. Remember SAF wooed those chilean miners at OT?!?!? Evidently Alexis even told a couple of his national teammates that he'll join us but the fool ended up at barca!

{Ed001's Note - I don't understand why you were in for him. You have plenty of young forwards, you need to sort out your defence and midfield, not bring in more of the same up front.}

34.) 30 Dec 2019 19:08:32
Ed001 totally agree. Never made sense to me.

{Ed001's Note - it was an odd one. I don't even see him as any better, currently, to Martial, Greenwood or Rashford, so where would he have played? People are forgetting how poor he was in link up play and that he would have to learn that if he moved to United. Him going to Dortmund makes sense. He can learn it there with regular footie.}



14 Dec 2019 14:02:29
Most tainted league title in history. Every game they get at least two var decisions in their favour getting offside goals given for them or dodgy penalties whilst perfectly good goals or penalties get chalked off.


{Ed047's Note - let’s not mention Fergie time or anything else though eh?

1.) 14 Dec 2019 14:11:57
Utter nonsense mate, they’re the best team in the league and deserve the points they’ve got.

{Ed047's Note - 100% RWWD

2.) 14 Dec 2019 15:18:31
They are a top team and stop the hating and they shudve won the title last year.

3.) 14 Dec 2019 15:43:38
They play decent football not disputing that. But every game they get every single decision and that isn't dodgy?

{Ed047's Note - and that of course never ever happened when you were winning titles Mort, you’re really just sounding bitter saying they play “decent football” 🤷‍♂️

They are a fabulous team playing great football with a manager we’d all love at our respective clubs.

4.) 14 Dec 2019 15:58:02
They are doing ok ed😏.

Jealousy is a horrible thing.

6.) 14 Dec 2019 17:34:35
Loads of people moaned that United got the decisions by refs, now we have VAR and it changes refs decisions. UNITED won what they did under a refs decision be it right or wrong. Wish it was the same, that way nobody can blame outside interference in any way.

7.) 14 Dec 2019 17:48:15
Best side in the league by a mile and it will be their year as they say. Personally I hope that can only galvanise our club into getting back to their best.

I think the league needs a strong Liverpool side, just like it needs a strong Utd one too.

{Ed025's Note - i agree with that eric..

8.) 14 Dec 2019 18:34:35
Imagine how exciting it would be if liverpool and utd were battling for the league. A few years of yet though.

9.) 14 Dec 2019 18:47:12
Correct me if i am wrong. What dodgy decision gone in Liverpool way today? . Mane's goal chalked off or else or am i missing something?

10.) 14 Dec 2019 18:52:57

How many dubious penalties have we had this year?

Jealousy is not a good look.

They are a great team and deserve to be where they are.

11.) 14 Dec 2019 19:33:59

This is one of the most pathetic posts I’ve ever seen on here. I dislike them but no argument they have been good, they said all 13 of our league titles were because of the refs, we are better than that.

20-19, we need to use it to kick on to stay on our perch.

rd i am not jealous you have been by far the better team. i just hope it makes the bigwigs at our club look up else it will be us waiting 30 years for the next title.

13.) 14 Dec 2019 22:50:35
You don’t fluke a title lads. If you are top at the end of May then you’ve been the best team. All decisions even themselves out over the course of the season.



01 Oct 2019 20:47:13
Cheer up lads. We could've signed Zidane instead.


1.) 01 Oct 2019 21:42:11
Why oh why did he go back?

2.) 01 Oct 2019 21:45:18
Serious question how long until Zidane gets sacked and replaced with Mourinho. And how will that affect Pogba's "dream" of playing for Real Madrid?

3.) 01 Oct 2019 21:48:12
poch seems to be having a spot of bother tonight.

4.) 01 Oct 2019 21:50:33
or pochetino.

5.) 01 Oct 2019 21:56:07
is it not short for that.

6.) 01 Oct 2019 22:16:43
Pogba wouldn't get a game at Madrid CFF the way he's playing.

7.) 01 Oct 2019 22:36:23
Spurs dressing room is a mess half the players not talking to each other. Its going on months. Poch is having a tough time add a result. 3 players need to leave the club until that happens they will be going nowhere.

8.) 01 Oct 2019 23:36:40
Tasty bit of gossip there Ken; do elaborate. Where do you pick this up?

9.) 02 Oct 2019 05:41:19
It's obvious Vertonghen, Aurier and Erikson wanted to leave.
Very soon Kane may also agitate for a move, if Spurs don't start competing for trophies or if they don't show ambition in the transfer market.

10.) 02 Oct 2019 07:56:40
If only it was just that TRD.
Not sure it should be posted on here what is meant to have happened, it's not good, and its destroyed the dressing room at spurs that's for sure.

{Ed001's Note - it is nothing to do with gossip column stuff. The dressing room was a mess anyway. This is about Levy and Poch not being on the same page. They aren't even reading the same book any more.}

11.) 02 Oct 2019 15:01:36
Inevitable Poch is off you think Ed?

{Ed001's Note - he wants to go, so yes.}

12.) 02 Oct 2019 15:37:35

How do you think Pochetino would do at United with our current structure in recruiting etc?

{Ed001's Note - same as he did at Spurs, an initial uplift followed by years of gradually dragging you down.}

13.) 02 Oct 2019 23:00:23
Let's sack him after the uplift😂.

{Ed001's Note - sounds like a plan there Kenneth!}

14.) 03 Oct 2019 06:55:04
lol Ken. Perfect plan.
Wonder if Poch would have won trophies had their recruitment been better.

{Ed001's Note - he was choosing the players.}

15.) 03 Oct 2019 07:28:55
Thanks Ed.
Then Poch has a fair share towards their current woes.

{Ed001's Note - yes, very much so.}

16.) 03 Oct 2019 09:55:44
As I keep saying a totally overrated manager.



24 Sep 2019 12:57:46
Right guys, its been a blast over the years, through good times and bad times. But all things come to an end and this feels like mine. Its no longer enjoyable coming on here to read the posts. Its draining to keep wading through the negativity and toxicity, whether its right or wrong. There's more important things in life to be doing so I'm taking a break, maybe awhile maybe forever. All the best.


{Ed025's Note - good luck to you mort, but when we lose good posters like yourself it does seem like the lunatics are taking over the asylum mate..

1.) 24 Sep 2019 13:19:30
A break is always good mate, hope to see you back.

2.) 24 Sep 2019 13:43:22
Mort, ignore, keep posting, your a good poster even if we disagreed a few times.
It just alll about opinions
I don't get involved much lately myself, but it's nice to read up from the usual posters,
We could come on and say united I told you so, whether about players or managers, but all we can do now is support through the bad times. And I hope you keep posting mort.

3.) 24 Sep 2019 14:04:07
Damn I'll miss your sarcasms Mort : (.

4.) 24 Sep 2019 15:27:02
Such a shame. Mort is one of the more entertaining posters on here. You will be missed in your absence which I hope will be a short sabbatical and we shall see you return in due course.

{Ed025's Note - i echo that scooby..

5.) 24 Sep 2019 16:17:20
Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.

I will think on it. I think I just need to get away for a few days.

6.) 24 Sep 2019 16:27:55
Mort go away for a few days and it will do you a world of good. I did the same and then i came back fresh.

You will actually enjoy reading others opinions and will realise thwre is a lot more to life then manchester united.

7.) 24 Sep 2019 16:57:05
Mort, don't do it! I love tour pithy replies, they always bring a smile to my face. Just have a few days away and see if it helps.

8.) 24 Sep 2019 18:40:08
Mort you are one of the best posters on here. Great sense of humour. Don't leave me here with all the loons😂
Top bloke.
Sleep on it.

9.) 24 Sep 2019 20:13:45
Thanks Caolan, Leahy, TRD, Scooby, Singh, AJH, Ken and Ed25. I'll take a few days away and see.

10.) 24 Sep 2019 20:24:19
Wait till we win 3 in a row. them come back. See you in 2027😂.

11.) 24 Sep 2019 20:48:05
Mort it could be worse. We could all be posting about Brexit. now that really doesn't have a happy ending in sight. Utd will get sorted in our lifetime.

12.) 24 Sep 2019 21:38:35
Stop being such a drama queen seeking attention would you 😂
In all seriousness you must be getting and feeling the lurve. Don’t leave the site to the loons. I rarely post. I need people like you as a reality check/ buffer from the knee jerk reactionary folk. So, take a break and return refreshed. ✌️.

13.) 24 Sep 2019 21:58:47
Do whatever makes you happy pal. You're a valued poster on the site and will be missed.

14.) 25 Sep 2019 07:54:58
Singh, so you are Fresh as well? Wow I thought it was 2 different posters.

15.) 25 Sep 2019 11:27:28
Loll me and fresh are two diff people.



21 Sep 2019 14:29:58
As I say its a funny season. The great Poch loses to Leicester who the worst United in history managed to beat last week. Bizarre.


1.) 21 Sep 2019 14:51:27
Comments like this are tedious. 99% of people who watch football would rather Poch in charge of their team over Ole. Context is huge. A manager who has consistently delivered with a club who have a smaller transfer and wage budget of teams they consistently finish above, whilst moving into a new stadium, improving the majority of their players. Play with a clear and concise plan. Done a good job at previous clubs. Going through a difficult patch after a champions league final loss. And you're using this a stick to beat fans who have a problem with our manager?

2.) 21 Sep 2019 14:58:58
They would have won if VAR hadn't ruined the game though, to be fair.

3.) 21 Sep 2019 14:59:33
Regardless of the result today poch is a good manager.
Did spurs have a player sent off today.

4.) 21 Sep 2019 15:05:09
oh come on mumbles poch isn't doing that well of a job they lost the most games in the top 6 than anybody last season already lost 2 this season. What wonders is he really doing with spurs. Sure they got top 4 last season and reached the champs league final which they lost. Spurs an poch ain't doing that great for me.

5.) 21 Sep 2019 15:05:17
We need to keep our own house in order - not worry about what others are up to. Spurs having a poor start to the season doesn't nullify ours. If our 'rivals' are faltering then we need to be taking advantage of that, not using it to justify our own results.

On a side note, for all those who want us to sign James Madison did you see his 6 grand back pack before the game? Horrendous!

Should fit right in at United.

6.) 21 Sep 2019 16:17:37
It’s not tedious, it’s pointing out that irrespective of how great Managers are, thIs season is bizarre. Right now I am not drawing any conclusions. It may have changed now but Norwich, who beat City last week are 2 down to Burnley.

7.) 21 Sep 2019 16:19:24
Mort by the same logic tottenham smashed crystal palace who we lost to.

8.) 21 Sep 2019 16:13:55
Mumbles what trophies has he won?

He's a mentally weak manager who produces mentally weak teams.

9.) 21 Sep 2019 16:48:11
Mort you will be telling me pep is a bad manager next.

10.) 21 Sep 2019 17:22:06
Mort, if Poch gets sacked tomorrow, he wouldn't be waiting around long before a top club gives him a call. He is an incredibly impressive manager. It may be that his time with those players is coming to an end, maybe they have reached their ceiling.

Whatever peoples views on Ole are, I don't think belittling a manager who has been very impressive over the last few years is the right way to prove that Ole is the right man for Manchester United.

11.) 21 Sep 2019 17:22:39
CSM I said exactly that last week. Palace got smashed after beating us. Its been a crazy season so far which is the point I was making and only Tony got. Also I had a dig at Poch as I think he's over rated. He's a good coach but not a great one until he wins something. And I don't think he will as he seems incapable of taking the next step.

Jred pal Peps a good coach. There's no denying it. But he needs to win the champions league again. Also I'd like to see him go somewhere and show he can do it when things aren't all on a plate for him.

12.) 21 Sep 2019 17:32:13
Mort there was no denying it before city pal .
Poch is a good manager as well.

13.) 21 Sep 2019 18:07:41
He still needs to win something though. I can't see Poch at the very top clubs until he wins something. He may to move to a club on the next rung down. But the questions of his teams mental fragility remains. Is it the players or him.

Jred he's a good coach. He improves players. But he's always had it easy going to the best team, with the best squad with the biggest cheque book. He failed at Bayern in not winning the champions league and so far City haven't impressed in that competition. I'm just saying I'd like to see him go to a club where he hasn't got everything on the plate at the start.

14.) 21 Sep 2019 20:27:06
It woukd be interesting to see how Pep did at a lower team but there is one thing which is undeniable. If you have the chance to play with the most gifted technical players who have the right motivation ie hunger to win then your chances of winning trophies will inevitably be greater than with players less technically gifted no matter how hungry their desire for success is. If Pep coached such players and they didn't win trophies he would still be a great coach.

15.) 21 Sep 2019 23:53:03
So if you're in a position where you're the most desirable Candidate and city offer you the highest wages and largest transfer budget and say arsenal offer you less for both, you would choose the arsenal offer?

16.) 22 Sep 2019 02:16:11
Hello everyone, First post here! Here are my 2 cents on Poch and Ole. Yes Poch is a good manager and might have done good at United, but I think we should get behind Ole at the moment and give him more time. We made a mistake handing him the job before the season ended, but now that he's the coach, he needs our support. He's trying something new and there would certainly be some downs in the beginning and sacking him would only create more instability and unrest within the club. I strongly believe he can put up a title-challenging team at least by the end of the 2021 transfer window, if given the financial freedom he needs. Thanks for reading.

17.) 22 Sep 2019 09:29:36
Agree watery eyes as long as the team are showing improvement.

To be honest I think Odegaard is why Madrid are backing away from Pogba. They have done good young talent at Madrid, a few out on loan. Maybe it'll end in tears because its Madrid but they do have some seriously good prospects.

Eriksen would be good for the games against lesser teams we struggle to break down. Lingard I would use in the games against the bigger teams. His energy and pressing works well in those games.

Because mumbles we've had decent managers who failed to get anything from them. The first signs of trouble and certain players hide. Or cause stuff behind the scenes.

Who said anything about accepting mediocrity?

So what if Ole met the lad and he went elsewhere. It happens. How many players did Fergie meet who went elsewhere?

We didn't end up paying the stupid money asked for so he went elsewhere. Onwards.

I think that's fair Ed but I think certain people would've moaned about Haaland whether we signed him or didn't. Anything to throw a negative spin on things.


{Ed047's Note - it’s so difficult when all you all want is a return to better times.

It’s going to cause friction no matter what happens.

Apparently we backed away because of Raiola's demands but anything to bash the manager huh mumbles.

Kurtis as I said Dortmund are a selling club and Raiola is always hawking his clients around. He'll move in 2 years. If we end up paying 100 million then we'll be getting close to the finished article. Not a young player which isn't necessarily what we need right now.
