Cheers Eds for the accompanying video. I've never felt sympathy for the French before, but God help them if we do the unthinkable, and actually bloody qualify.

Going on holiday in the morning, and the phone will be switched off until I get back. Hopefully another few faces when I turn it back on again. If not, I'll just crack open another cold one. Lifes too short to be busting blood vessels over something I've no control over.

Just hope the team can get off to a good start, because I think confidence is so important with this squad. Good start and a bit of momentum could set us up for a decent season. I do worry that a poor start could affect the current optimism around the club. There still seems to be a fragility in confidence, and a couple of poor results could see that spread quickly. We don't have the strongest, minded squad. Looking forward to it anyway, if only to see and end to this constant self-flagellation over transfers.

Hasta luego, fellas!

1.) 02 Aug 2019 14:32:26
It's madness. I genuinely believe we currently have a good enough squad to compete for top four this season.

If we can add 2-3 more quality players to the squad then obviously it will make it much easier and will help close the gap between us and Liverpool and City.

If not then we'll just have to see how the season pans out.

Either way, have a good holiday and see you on the other side.

2.) 02 Aug 2019 14:39:40
Cheers mate enjoy your holiday 👍. It has been a positive feeling so far with our preparations, hope we will take it to the season and have a good start. And I have no idea what self flagellation means. 🙃.

3.) 02 Aug 2019 14:42:49
Sme for me Noucamp but away for a month so will miss the home games chelsea and Palace. Will be watching them in a bar with a couple of cold ones though enjoy your hols- and to everyone else, heres to a better season!

4.) 02 Aug 2019 14:57:07
Enjoy the holiday boys.
Stephen you are bang on. Its nothing worth worrying over.

5.) 02 Aug 2019 15:14:39

Cheers, lads. Play nice while I'm away 😁.



25 Jul 2019 14:39:21
Young McTominay is looking more and more like a proper player, every time I watch him. I liked him at the start, but thought he might be a little limited as a player. A shuffler, if you like. Just shows you what a few games and in increase in confidence can do. He's pinging crossfield passes around now, without even breaking stride. And he's still getting the tackles in and doing his covering. I certainly wouldn't have any qualms about seeing his name on the team-sheet.

Glad to see Gomez get his goal. Brilliant stuff. But he needs to sort those shorts out for his post-match interviews.

1.) 25 Jul 2019 14:47:16
He has continued to improve.

2.) 25 Jul 2019 14:49:45
Really impressed by Gomes too, looking a lot better this pre-season.

Hopefully he gets his opportunity this year.

3.) 25 Jul 2019 14:53:39
i thought fred played well.

first half team was great pressing high playing with speed.

dropped off in the second half but overall more fitness wrapped up.

4.) 25 Jul 2019 15:28:04
Mctominay has been my player of pre season, he definitely should start ahead of Matic now for me.

5.) 25 Jul 2019 15:36:24
McTominay was one of our best players last season. He was phenomenal against PSG, and one of the few who came out of the Barcelona tie with his head held high.

Absolutely first choice right now. He also seems to have the hard work and dedication to improve, so we will see where that takes him.

Do we need Longstaff? Maybe to replace Matic who looks like his legs have well and truly gone. Although maybe Garner could step up as a rotation option, been very good when given the chance.

6.) 25 Jul 2019 15:48:33
shappy i think we need 2 central mids but mctominay would be 1st choice along side pogba if he stays.

7.) 25 Jul 2019 16:04:47
McTominay's ability on the ball is improving.
Today he always looked to pass forward and initiating attacks.
Brings loads of energy and plays with great passion for the club.
The academy lads are stealing the show.

8.) 25 Jul 2019 16:22:14
TBF to Mctom, I'm sure a lot of us thought he wouldn't really ever step up, but fair play to him, he's getting better and better and actually cares.

As for Gomes, for a small guy he uses his body well and can take it, hope he keep performing.

This is why I'm a bit over transfers this window, we have good youth coming through, yer we need to buy a few more, but it's still exciting.

9.) 25 Jul 2019 17:40:05
elvis i'm all for letting the young players play and develop but there's areas that need improving now where we are not so fortunate to have someone to come in and do the job.

10.) 25 Jul 2019 18:24:35
I think Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes would complete the squad.
We can afford it if we let the likes of Lukaku, Matic, Sanchez, Rojo, Jones leave.



20 Jul 2019 14:21:58
I know it's only pre-season, but when you see young academy lads like Chong and Greenwood combining, McTominay pinging passes around like a young Michael Carrick, or Gomez in the last game, I feel so much more pride in my team, than watching a bunch of over-paid, and often over-hyped mercenaries strutting around like the club owes them something. I just hope that people are patient with our kids, and don't start on them when the inevitable dip in form happens. They're cheering the heart of an aul cynic, just now.

1.) 20 Jul 2019 14:26:27
100% agree. The best United teams have always had a solid core of young players.

2.) 20 Jul 2019 14:28:36
It’s been a joy to watch at times today Stevie. I’m actually buzzing for the season to start. Screw all the doom and gloom I think we will surprise a few.

3.) 20 Jul 2019 14:29:55
The future is bright

• Scott McTominay [22]
• Tahith Chong [19]
• Dan James [21]
• Marcus Rashford [21]
• Anthony Martial [23]
• Mason Greenwood [17]
• Axel Tuanzebe [21]
• Aaron Wan-Bissaka [21]
• Diogo Dalot [20]
• James Garner [18]
• Angel Gomes [18].

4.) 20 Jul 2019 14:33:24
I'm not one to get carried away but Mason Greenwood wow! What a prospect!

5.) 20 Jul 2019 14:33:57
Yeah Noucamp.
Chong with some classic wing play.

6.) 20 Jul 2019 14:34:20
Greenwood has all the attributes to be a star, i think he is going to be our next start, he should teach Rashy how to put the ball in the net lol.

7.) 20 Jul 2019 14:39:14
Greenwood is stating a case that he is ready and I’m not sure that’s wrong, I would be delighted if he steps up, he was amazing last year for the kids, he’s some talent.

For the first time in a long time I actually like some of our players and like the style of play, very exciting.

8.) 20 Jul 2019 14:48:35
That goal from Mason was reminiscent of RvP. The bit of skill to get past Skriniar was amazing too, what a talent. No fear in these lads.

9.) 20 Jul 2019 14:59:40
Greenwood is special and i think he has more talent then Rashford.

10.) 20 Jul 2019 15:12:03
So many people have been calling for us to sign Skriniar, but some 17 year old lad with only one start in the first team just had him on toast.

So is Skriniar overrated, or do we have a special talent in Greenwood?

11.) 20 Jul 2019 15:18:30
Shappy it is pre season lol, no need to go to such extremes when judging players especially in games where the main priority is fitness.

Greenwood has done what everyone expected him to, make a firm case to included in our first team squad next season. He is too good to play under 23 football and probably too useful to loan out to another team so he will have plenty of opportunities next season.

12.) 20 Jul 2019 15:27:59
Greenwood is a special talent.
Someone mentioned he is like RVP.
I think he seems to have an even better ceiling than him.
He seems electric, and seems like one of the those to whom the balls always falls to.
If he doesn't get injured and keeps getting playtime, there is no reason he won't score 20 goals next season.
He scored a wonderful goal today, he hit the woodwork with an almost RVP like finish.
He made a tap in finish the previous game.
And he was electric against Cardiff too and could have had a hat trick.

I'm so excited to see Gomes, Chong who seems better on the left, Tuanzebe, Greenwood, McTominay and Pereira do really well next season.

Ole seems to love the quick 1-2 passes players to break open defense and a lot of players are responding really well.

I think our squad isn't too shabby now if we sign Harry Maguire or a centre half who is really good in the air.
And possible replacement for Pogba if he leaves.
I don't think Lukaku needs replacing.

13.) 20 Jul 2019 16:15:09
Rooney was special from that age only. No wonder Greenwood will turn out to be the same as him.
England and Manchester needs one of that kind. Young, and special.

14.) 20 Jul 2019 16:29:54
The only problem I saw with the young lads is apart from greenwood they all look more comfortable playing on the left side of the front 3,chong especially.

15.) 20 Jul 2019 16:36:46
Greenwood's going to be good. Only preseason, but with you guys being in Europa this season it's a fantastic way to get him integrated in the first team.

Indeed he looks a better talent than Rashford, and contrary to Rash he looks like a real striker. I don't think he's suited to the wing positions as his dribbling probably isn't up to that level yet (his technique seems good though) .
Finishing is crisp and his movement is smart and lively, similar to our Tammy. Greenwood's technique is better than Tammy, and that's the difference between them. He can get involved more in play that way.

The big PL clubs combining to produce England's future forward line.
Callum - Greenwood - Sancho looks tasty, with a top Liverpool prospect as well in Rhian Brewster :)

Can't wait till our match in a couple of weeks. You're lucky we'll be missing Ruben and Callum! :p.

16.) 20 Jul 2019 16:47:04
I hope we don't sign any forwards/ wingers should Lukaku leave.
Greenwood and to lesser extent James and Chong deserve games.
My concern is still CB.
Tuanzebe looks promising but him alongside Lindelof the defence looked weak when defending crosses - especially with DeGea stuck on the line.
As things are Smalling remains a must (as with their injury record, we cannot count on. Bailly and Jones)

17.) 20 Jul 2019 17:21:35
Mason Greenwood is the real deal.

18.) 20 Jul 2019 33:41:17
Greenwood has been a special talent all through the ranks. I posted on here about him a couple of years ago because he was so two footed he could take corners and penalties with either foot. He is at an age where it is the question whether he can step up and have the mental plus physical attributes needed. He seems to be down to earth and let’s see whether he can handle the mental side. I read he has physically grown this year so if still growing we need to be careful not to over play him.

Someone asked on here who we would buy for right side attack and maybe that is a player who won’t be bought to not block a path for Greenwood too much. However I think if Lukaku goes we will need a centre forward for the short term at least. Greenwood has real potential, it’s up to him now.



20 Jul 2019 13:11:53
Poor Wes Brown. He's no Hugh McIlvanney, is he.



14 Jun 2019 13:13:49
It appears supporting the manager, depends on whether someone rates them personally. If not, they'll stamp their feet until someone they do rate gets in. Then they'll come on and lecture everyone to get behind the manager.

I'll never understand why a supporter hopes a particular manager fails rather than succeeds. If a manager does well, the club is doing well. Seems to be a few on here think they know more than people who actually work in the game, which makes me wonder why they're not working for the club, rather than posting their over-inflated opinions to strangers on a social media site.

{Ed002's Note - A good post and it is difficult to comprehend. I don’t like the irrational kowtowing to supporters by some clubs. Elsewhere than most sides in England, clubs see coaches in the same way as players and switch them out in search of success - and that approach has worked - even in England.}

1.) 14 Jun 2019 13:44:50
I don't think there are many supporters out there hoping ole fails, but with so much uncertainty around the club at the moment are the conditions at the club right for him to be successful?

{Ed002's Note - It is a two way street and as it is I really don’t see him as the right option. The guys coming Ming up with players still have The JM list - which is a good one but may not be as applicable as folks think.

2.) 14 Jun 2019 14:04:28
Spot on Stevie. There’s a large group of ‘fans’ that would rather see the manager fail just so they can say ‘I told you so’. Ole is the manager and he has my backing until the day he leaves. I may not agree with everything he does in that time, but he’s part of united and we must support him. When he goes, the next manager will gain that support.

3.) 14 Jun 2019 14:11:34
Im still trying to get my head around UA comment, and yes I know its an opinion, 'Ole will never be worthy of being man utd manager in my eyes'. so basically saying even if we won the quadruple or even 1 trophy he wouldn't be worthy? . A pretty baffling statement if you ask me.

4.) 14 Jun 2019 14:19:03
It's not rocket science, is it Park?

5.) 14 Jun 2019 15:38:31
I'm fully behind the manager and hope he succeeds having said that I don't think he's the right man for us. I'd be delighted to eat my words though.

6.) 14 Jun 2019 15:55:18

As I understand it we have a recruitment department consisting of people like Marcel Bout and Jim Lawlor etc and also Ole and Phelan will come up with their own targets and the club then pursues the most viable targets? For eg. The reported interest in Longstaff and perhaps even Daniel James are recommendations by Ole?

The Jose list I assume includes the likes of Bruno Fernandes and Ruben Dias but what do you mean by it not being as applicable? Those players not fitting into what Ole wants to do or them not being viable due to lack of UCL football etc?

{Ed002's Note - Ok - if that is what you think.}

7.) 14 Jun 2019 16:49:30
Its really isn't Stevie. It seems good old fashioned supporting the manager and team has gone out the window with the modern fan. You even have fans nowadays who support a player over the team. It's ludicrous tbh.

8.) 14 Jun 2019 17:10:37
Wiggy, its quite simple. Who put Ole in charge? The answer is Ed Woodward. What does Ed Woodward know about football? Nought. Name me one poster on the page that says Ed is right when it comes to matters of football or recruitment. Or answer me this, we saw 6 months of football under Ole and if my understanding is correct the managerial position was temp for him and the permanent managaer was to be appointed after the season and yet we got sentimental and appointed him early. If we waited till the end of the season and saw the performances and the results after the first few games, would any sensible person have appointed Ole? Even when Jose was sacked, was there one poster who mentioned Ole as a probable choice? And that is where i am coming from.

Roberto de Matteo won the champions league for Chelsea, one trophy that Jose failed to win for Chelsea. What became of him? Did he become a great manager? No.

I know i will be called a troll and get multiple thumbs down from the "informed" people but i still stand by my views. I liked Ole as a player but that does not automatically mean i will like him as a manager.

9.) 14 Jun 2019 17:33:51
I've supported every manager so far.

I had my reservations about Moyes. That first press conference. The gutting of the back room staff and the replacements. That first summer window chasing players we had mo chance and signing the player most unsuited player he could. He still had my support till the Fulham game.

Van Gaal I thought was a good fit. Had a defined philosophy and style. Good with young players. The performances and style were below what was expected. Transfers again were a mess. I think he was badly served and should have had his third season although I didn't want Allegri.

Jose I was excited by. I thought he was what we needed to sort the dressing room out. Instead he lost it. Bad style of play. Again messy transfers. Had to go.

Ole? The football and results were good upto the Liverpool game. Injuries disrupted things. Players reverted to type. let's see where we are at Christmas first.

10.) 14 Jun 2019 17:46:08
People love to gloat and stick the boot in early just so they can say "I told you so". I personally wouldn't have appointed Ole, but now he's here I think he'll get the support of 95% of fans. We tried the Premier League veteran in Moyes, the European tactician in LvG and the natural born winner in Jose. If Ole can replicate the ethos in his first few games then we may be onto something.

Whatever about Woodward, the fact is we have a team of players who are playing under their potential. If Ole can restore the core ingredients of hard work, pace and flair into the team. Then I for one will be happy to see him in the job until the steady improvements stop.

11.) 14 Jun 2019 19:04:19
I hope OGS succeeds, I just don’t believe he will. I support the club and hope the manager is successful, not support the manager and hope the club is successful. I have chanted managers names when successful but they have earned it not been given it. That is why I didn’t support the Moyes banner nor the ridiculous over sentimental tripe about OGS.

12.) 14 Jun 2019 19:43:17
It is utterly ridiculous to even post the original post saying anyone will want OGS or any united manager to fail. Who has actually come on here and said they want OGS or any manager to fail? It simply isn't true.
We ALL want OGS to succeed 100%. But whether he will or not remains to be seen. If he's going to get rid of the under achievers, then he's halfway there and we can get our club back. If he allows Woodward to dominate footballing matters and transfers, then I'm afraid the club will keep going backwards.

13.) 14 Jun 2019 22:00:44
Nomid, you obviously haven't read the thread on the Rumours page. Have a read, and then tell me no one hopes our manager fails.

14.) 14 Jun 2019 22:38:30
Stevie, i haven't read the thread, but i will do. But in any case, any fan wishing a managet to fail, is not a fan.
If said manager has been given time to do a job and fails, then by all means, people can criticise. But we have to see what OGS can do. My worry is Woodward above all.

15.) 15 Jun 2019 02:07:06
AAA regards your last point that's the whole problem isn't it. Jose stood up to Woodward on football matters and couldn't succeed. What chance Ole? The only hope if it goes south on Ole is that Woodward finally goes.

16.) 15 Jun 2019 08:46:51
I think that's everyone's worry, NoMid.

Give him more time than the last three managers? Who's been saying that? I think the general consensus is, like with all managers, a bare minimum of two transfer windows at the very least is required. Haven't seen anyone say he deserves more than Jose got. But I have seen a couple on here want him gone before a ball was kicked.

Why the need for digs like, 'precious manager', Red Man? Fine, you didn't want him as the manager, but he's still been a great Utd servant, and probably deserves a bit better than spiteful little comments like that. Sounds a bit childish, to be honest.

With all due respect to Leahy, you're all making judgements on a rumour. This is how the urban myth of Ole being a yes man gathers steam. None of us knows what goes on behind the scenes, but repeat something like this enough times, and people start accepting it as fact.

And you know that's not a dig at you, Leahy.
