United in for Porto RB Diogo Dalot for 20m.

You need to read his Wikipedia entry lol!

2.) 29 May 2018 19:48:23
Just looked at his Wikipedia page. Someone’s changed it already saying he plays for Man united and was born in Bakini bottom. As of today I’m nearly sure that mightn’t be 100% correct. 😂.

3.) 29 May 2018 23:42:33
It did say rather unflattering things about Pep Guariola’s bald head! 😂.

Manchester United Looked on verge of bringing in Talisca as an attacking option. Looks like Jose thinks Rashford isn't ready as back up yet. so may be loan move for him?

One of the Red Devil

1.) 20 May 2018 17:28:10
Rashford is best suited to lw. I suspect that the goal this summer will be to move Martial on, and bring in a new striker. Rashford will be back up to Sanchez.

2.) 20 May 2018 22:22:42
Is he any good?

3.) 20 May 2018 23:23:17
20 goals and 7 assists this year I think 8 have been headers. Looks a talented player, quick and skilful. He is 6’3 so ideal for Jose. Usually plays no 10 or second striker. He’s left footed but I can see him playing on the right wing for us if we sign him. Only 24 as well so probably would prefer him to Willian.

4.) 20 May 2018 23:50:32
I despair every time I hear a player is tall so he's ideal for Jose.
Not a criticism of you Park, more for Jose.

5.) 21 May 2018 06:19:58
I would agree Rave. Jose's obsession with tall players always makes me question whether they are being signed purely for their footballing ability or to play the long ball. In this case Talisca looks like the former but we shall see it happens.

6.) 21 May 2018 11:09:16
Replacement for Fellaini as our plan B. Which actually seems to be our plan A. Keep it tight until 70 minutes then throw on someone tall to play the long ball game.

7.) 21 May 2018 12:12:06
Looks like we might get Willian this summer too. Will be 30 by the time season stars, so perfect age for Jose.

8.) 21 May 2018 12:31:54
As a back up to Lukaku and small games, he look promising. if he manages to perform batter and make right flank his than best. he Has a Brazilian flair to his game and we have seen Rashford need more time to developed over all. May be 1 or 2 loan will help him boost his confidence and footballing decisions.

9.) 21 May 2018 13:47:23
We have offered no atttacking threat down our right hand side for years. Who cares what age these players are as long as they’re effective and do the business. William would be a super signing, but we are starting to look a bit Chelsea now. Who knows, JT for new assistant role?

10.) 21 May 2018 14:44:46
Don’t get me wrong, Willian is a good player, but signing him is symptomatic of Jose’s approach since he left Chelsea first time round. It’s planning for the next season or two, put not building a team. If you contrast it to Pep at City, he’s building a young side to dominate for years, Jose is trying to win Jose a title but not planning beyond the season ahead.

11.) 21 May 2018 15:13:37
Danny would you not agree that Jose has to have a good season ahead, so in his shoes would you not go for a right winger that you can trust, also Pep pretty much had everything in place for him when he took over something that Jose was not afforded as he is still repairing other managers mistakes.

12.) 21 May 2018 15:52:39
It’s hardly repairing mistakes if you’re creating a team that you know will only be able to play at the top level for a few more seasons. Pep has brought in young players for the future, and has helped the young players at the club develop. Jose has, increasingly, started to look for players in the latter stages of their careers to replace younger players because he doesn’t care about helping players develop. It’s a trend toward caution and reducing mistakes, at the expense of building a team that lasts.

13.) 21 May 2018 16:22:58
Willian can be top level for 2-4 seasons, ideal for Chong to grow and progress into first team in that time.
Agree that Martial should move on and Rashford should be LW back up. Zlatan style striker for back up to Lukaku, say what you like about him getting the second contract but Ibra could’ve helped us on Saturday.

14.) 21 May 2018 20:09:29
To be fair though fellas and ladies, would you rather have some instant success or would you rather him go for younger players and short term not be as successful but have a brighter future? I’ll not one of your fans so my opinion isn’t really of much importance but I can see Jose’s point of trying to get success fast maybe he doesn’t think he’ll get long enough to see the long term benefit of younger players etc? What’s your guys thoughts. I’d love Rashford at Anfield won’t ever happen but the kids clearly special.

15.) 21 May 2018 22:05:03
I think a balance needs to be struck being youth and experience. As the season wore on, Jose started erring on the side of caution and picking more experienced players who are less likely to make mistakes. The level of our football got poorer in the second half, but we ground out some big results. If you look at the team that started in the FA Cup final, only three players not in their late 20s/ early 30s. Looking to sign players like Willian is an indication that this is the direction the squad is heading. Jose is building a team for the short term, and spending lots of money to do it.

16.) 21 May 2018 22:26:36
Problem is Jose himself cannot see himself staying long term so he is going for short term success which translates to short term signings. Personally like Willian and if we get 3 years out of him then Chong is ready to step up then that would work out nicely. Problem is fans want instant success and so does Jose so he will try and win any way possible and f he does so he will be off.

Cesar - all depends on the style of play for me. If he is building a young and exciting team which is competing but not winning, then I think fans will be more patient. Issue is the style is so bad and Jose always had winning the big honours to fall back on. When he doesn’t things get toxic and fans get restless. If Jose was to build for the future with young players and improves the style I am happy to be patient. If he can deliver a title in the short term and style is like his first Chelsea team, I wouldn’t be complaining.

17.) 22 May 2018 10:23:49
Planning for the short term, shows us exactly what Jose's priorities are. A title to add to his CV, and to hell with the future of the club. It's always about Jose.



06 Mar 2018 17:27:57
A small insight needed from ed0002, ed do you think united will follow up last summer's interest in Fabinho? And will it be for RB or Holding role?

One of the Red Devil, I just scanned your post - And will it be for RB or Holding role? -

and saw Rob Holding. Panic ensued for a minute!



12 Feb 2018 11:31:18
I think we will buy dybala and play him as a goal keeper. just because Jose feels he will be good there. since Fergie left, the trend is set to play players out of position and multi tasking players handling positions rather specialist.

Whenever Jose speak good of Shaw. he drops him. Playing young in front of him that to against new castle is a puzzle. When energy is needed, he brings on Carrick and Mata in name of tactical changes. Despite woefully performance by Smalling and Jones he exclude Rojo, who is at least a fighter. Lindeloff not getting chances to settle and get his confidence. against smaller teams SAF always tried his and their luck. That always helped with depth. I loved him for that.

We don't have quality no10 still Jose is obsessed with playing 4-2-3-1. a simple switch to 4-3-3 and to many players come in right position.
Martial has started playing good on left and as soon as Alexis arrived he has been shifted to right. why?

Alexis is good on both side, he can be asked to attack from right. What's a point a breaking a young players growing confidence. Jose's thinking is bringing this team back. If I were him I will play bling in holding with Herrera and Pogba in midfield, with Martial and Alexis out wide.

To many questions can be asked to Jose that what's actually happening in the name of tactics? Sorry to say but it's fun to watch city, Liverpool and Tottenham. But optimistic Army will point to league position. tell me which was the last 5 game run, you got satisfied with both play and result.

One of the Red Devil

1.) 13 Feb 2018 12:01:58
3-2-3-2 next seasons formation fits every one in perfectly martial upfront with lukaku. Sanchez on the left pogba middle. Matic holding with someone who will help him and stay put. Bailly can hold the hands of the 2 either side of him and tell them to stop doing shite things like score og's or dive. Sorted for 18/ 19 just need 3 signings a cb a holding midfielder akin to a 25 year old Carrick and a right-sided player akin to a Beckham with crossing ability or a right sided giggs.

2.) 14 Feb 2018 02:01:28
So you would drop Matic and play Blind in holding midfield. Give your head a wobble.

3.) 14 Feb 2018 10:12:16
Dodgy. he is more defensive and intelligent on ball than Matic I guess. he I guess is a victim of his versatility. remember we bought him as midfielder only. and he was doing well before moved to CB. also on rumour front Barcelona is interested in him. speaks something of the lad.

4.) 14 Feb 2018 13:25:50
if i remember right didn't jm say when he first joined that he will play players in there right positions.



22 Jan 2018 17:38:36
After Alexis deal Jose is looking to off load Darmian and sign a competitive right back if he can with Fabinho a favoured target. If he can't than this is it for this window.
I ll count getting Alexis as sucess. Although at some point I feel a middle type St is also needed. As Rashford need to work hard on his finishing and heading. I think he gets nervous in one on one situations.

1.) 22 Jan 2018 17:59:38
I doubt Mourinho is looking at a player who isn't playing at RB his last 2-3-4 years.

I'd be happy to wait until Fosu-Mensah comes back and give him a spell in the first team.

This is the first time I actually enjoyed DDG conceding goals. I would take This Ronaldo without a second thought. even at 34 he has 2-3 years left in him. take a bow United legend.

One of the Red Devil

1.) 15 Jun 2018 22:35:03
With the exception of 2 set plays and a shot that ddg saves 99 times out of a 100 how good do people think Ronaldo played .

2.) 15 Jun 2018 22:46:22
He isn't the same player but give him a chance and he scores. In big games he can still put them away.

3.) 15 Jun 2018 23:28:49
he would not last half a season now in the prem.

4.) 16 Jun 2018 00:40:15
Arguing with the boy. He wants him back, and thinks he could still do it. I think his legs have gone. International pace suits him alright, but as Daz, says, wouldn't last long in the Premiership.

But then what do I know, the boy made him his captain in the fantasy football. I dropped Golovin at the last minute.

5.) 16 Jun 2018 01:42:22
Ronaldo off course isn’t the player he was when he won the balon d’or with us. But he’s ruthless, he’s no longer a winger, he’s and out and out striker for me. He still has pace, his ability to get off the ground is incredible, and he wins big games by himself with his goals. Build a team to play to him and he will still get 40 plus a season for the next 3-5 years. He is a physical freak.

6.) 16 Jun 2018 08:01:54
Totally agree Coalan. Stevie, listen to your son!
Ronaldo can play at a high level for at least another 2 years. He's looked after himself better than most 22 year old players. Dare i mention Shaw, jones, rooney, Anderson who seem to have lived at McDonalds, yet no one said they couldn't last in the PL. Yet Ronaldo is 34 but extremely fit and everyone is writing him off.
Most importantly, can you imagine how much the players around him will learn from him. Not only skilfully, but mentally and desire to win and experience. I think Rashford, pogba and Martial if he stays, will benefit a lot.

7.) 16 Jun 2018 08:16:26
I'm not for Ronaldo coming back, he would be ineffective. Last night he surprised me, forget his goals, (pen and freekick you can still score at 50) and the fluke was just that as DDG messed up and it was a poor effort. Fair play to him, but that could easily have been any other player scoring them goals.

However he did well for me last night, linked well, was very unselfish, worked harder than usual and I was impressed with his brain. That said, would only look good for a team like City in the Prem and he isn't good enough for them anymore. He needs to be the focal point and yesterday was rare in that he actually played well. He is a goal machine, but that's because he plays for Madrid now and is surrounded by players giving him the ball relentlessly, doubt he'd hit double figures if we signed him to be honest.

Spain for one more year then US is sensible.

{Ed025's Note - me thinks you speak with forked tongue mate..

8.) 16 Jun 2018 08:39:01

I think he would hit double figures before October. How anyone can say he wouldn’t do it in the premier league anymore is beyond me, he just scored in pretty much every game of the CL this season, won it then scored a hat trick in the first game of the World Cup, the guy is still unstoppable. If you genuinely think ‘anyone’ could have scored that free kick without making De Gea dive you are crazy.

I am not for buying him as I don’t think we would get as long out of him as the price Madrid would demand, but the guy has proved time and time again how he can still do it and how ruthless he is, he would have a field day for at least 2 seasons in the prem for me, that just isn’t long enough at the price.

{Ed025's Note - best player on the planet for me GDS,..

9.) 16 Jun 2018 08:50:37
What am I reading above?

"How good did he actually play"?
"Would not last half a season in the prem"
"International pace suits him"
"He would be ineffective, wouldn't hit double figures, not good enough for city"

I'd put my house on it, if Ronaldo was to spend one season with us next year he would score 30+ easy. He is a phenom, on a different planet IMO.

In agreement with GDS, I'm not all for buying him because he'd be incredibly costly and we'd have to sacrifice other positions that are needed. But if he did come back tomorrow, he'd have no problems at all. How it is questioned given his incredible record is beyond me.

10.) 16 Jun 2018 09:07:11
I’ve not seen many 50 year olds hit a free kick like that tbf.

Ed. I can only hope that Beast was speaking with forked tongue. Otherwise, i would have to say he's been taking illegal substance washed down with a lot of alcohol.

And he'll teach martial and pogba what real desire means.

Didn't everyone say the slower zlatan wouldn't score many? How'd that work out?



13 Jun 2018 01:06:54
Problem at sporting CP. I would happily take William Carvalho and Gelson Martin's for signing on fees.
They will surely add depth to squad.

One of the Red Devil

1.) 13 Jun 2018 10:26:34
Both not good enough. Carvalho a few years ago was a good prospect but he hasn’t kicked on. Everton are interested. Martins is a decent player but we need better.

2.) 13 Jun 2018 16:54:39
We were linked with William Carvalho, I said at the time he couldn't pass water. He's not at the level we need, just another hyped up player who would be about right at West Ham.



28 Mar 2018 17:02:04
Hi all, everyone read news. follows someone. different sites. so my question is which are the players you mostly seem will join and leave. for me Savic, Jorginho, Sandro, RB (no names), Varane and wild card dybala. Out goings will be Shaw, Jones, Blind, Fellaini, and wildcard Mata.

One of the Red Devil

1.) 28 Mar 2018 17:25:44
I would like those players to join. But considering the prices touted to those players, I am not sure the club will be able to fund all of them.

2.) 30 Mar 2018 08:21:31
I reckon 3-4 in and the same out. It’s never as many as people expect it to be. As for names, certainly a mid and fullback. Would love Dybala but realistically similar to Sanchez and hasn’t Mourinho already said the attack is sorted?



21 Feb 2018 17:09:03
That's one for fans. out of two potential targets which one is more prefered. Jean Seri or Jorginho? Please share your input.

One of the Red Devil

1.) 21 Feb 2018 17:41:47
Jorginho by far. Great passing range and ball retention which we seem to miss in our midfield. He has the capability of passing long and also providing incisive balls from midfield to start attacks. His passing statistics are consistently 90% in every game he plays. His is tactically aware and intelligently positions himself to break up play. His workrate is very good and his has good pace which we lack in midfield. The key for me is his footballing brain which we seem to lack in our team. Weaknesses would be that he is fairly slight in frame and poor in the air but we have other players for that and that should not be a measure of a footballer imo.

Onto seri, he is much more versatile player than Jorginho, with the ability to play deep lying midfield, box to box or even behind the striker. He has a good shot from distance and is decent from set pieces. He is not the sort of player to grab the game by the scruff of the neck or pull his teammates up, he can often go missing which is something we do not need. His is also relatively short 5ft 6 if I am correct so it would be a strange signing for Jose. He also suffers from some condition which reacts badly to cold weather so I am not sure whether it would be sensible to sign him. Clearly talented and almost moved to Barca, but we need a Carrick replacement and Jorginho is perfect.

2.) 21 Feb 2018 17:57:21
2 players with very different attributes. We need both🤣 or as least players with simialar attributes.

3.) 21 Feb 2018 18:03:19

4.) 21 Feb 2018 18:22:32
Haha not going to lie Deano I love to watch a lot of of European football as I wanted to be a football scout before the parents told me not to waste my time 😂. But I agree with ken both would do nicely with attributes we lack in midfield. Still would like to see Herrera stay instead of splashing on another midfielder like seri.

5.) 21 Feb 2018 18:43:02
On the total another view. my first choice here is Milincovic-savic. And Scott McTominy to replace Carrick and Fellaini. Returning Andreas Parera and TFM will provide more depth and versatility.

6.) 21 Feb 2018 18:44:03
I thought herrera might start tonight. He knows the ground and style of play experience we could do with tonight.

On the above great assessments. I like seri been watching a while now after reading we were linked. Veey industrious busy player but jorgihno is more in the deep lying playmaker mould . His size is not an issue he is a crafty tough little nut and can look after himself and the ball.

7.) 21 Feb 2018 19:21:30
Here's a midfield option out of left field, Leandro Paredes of Zenit St Petersburg. He has excellent at Roma before his move to Russia looks the complete midfielder to me. Tackles well, passes excellently, cleaver movement, good reading of the game, able to dictate a game and works hard.



03 Feb 2018 17:11:46
A decent enough performance. on a positive note how many defenders were sent on yellow? Alexis caused havoc for them and that's what a traditional winger/ attacker do. after yellows they got in concious and more chances of a mistakes. and even red. that should be the target. that should Martial and Rashford need to learn. only speed won't do anything.
Bravo Sanchez.

3.) 03 Feb 2018 20:04:12
I know you were. All about opinions I suppose, the fact there aren’t too many posts on here about the game would suggest to me we did alright. Did you not think Sanchez played well? McTominay looked good again in the middle in my opinion. Not sure who you support but guessing from the ‘you’ that it isn’t United.

The assault on McTominay could and possibly should could have been a red card and the Ref doesn’t even give a penalty, I was at the other end of the stadium and it looked a pen, seeing the replay it’s even worse, shocking decision.

4.) 03 Feb 2018 20:40:52

I think if you read I said we did ok. Huddersfield hardly had a kick in our half, we controlled the game, nothing special but some good moments in the 2nd half and always felt we would win. Did you not?

9.) 04 Feb 2018 11:56:18
When the opposition are putting 11 men’s behind the ball and kicking lumps out of everyone, it’s hard to get any decent rhythm going. There was no intent to win from Huddersfield, just to foul and disrupt our play - they committed 19 fouls yesterday (plus all the ones not given), and very few of them didn’t leave something on the United players. It wasn’t the prettiest, but I’m glad we won and if the other team refuse to let a game be played then I’m not going to bemoan the United players for it.

10.) 04 Feb 2018 12:39:40

Who said everything is rosy in the garden? You’ve read what you wanted to read and posted what you wanted to post before you have even read anything.

We were alright yesterday, huddersfield were physical and we beat them, we are now 8 points ahead of the amazing spurs who beat us on Wednesday. For me it is the opposite to what you say, after a defeat it is a disaster and everyone overreacts. Spurs played well on Wednesday, we didn’t, that’s pretty much it. Good result yesterday to be tus back on track and I expect us to beat Newcastle on Sunday.

I m not a tactician but we have almost no option on right. initially we were looking at Sanchez before he joined Barcelona for right side only to find replacements for Ronaldo. So before January window, Martial was performing just required if not brilliant. so without any major issue displacing him from left was a blow to him. Sanchez could do well on right. But what happened is Martial, rash, Lingard pushed to right to do job.

So I guess that showed Jose's confidence in lad was not proper.
If I were Jose I would have kept Martial on left and Sanchez on right with Lukaku and see how that goes up.

As a back up to Lukaku and small games, he look promising. if he manages to perform batter and make right flank his than best. he Has a Brazilian flair to his game and we have seen Rashford need more time to developed over all. May be 1 or 2 loan will help him boost his confidence and footballing decisions.

Doesn't need to worry on Sanchez. a top top player. Only thing is he is too light weight for a second striker and Jose seems reluctant to play by wings. our wingers are always in the middle of the pitch. making easy to defend by over crowding and pushing off. this is costing Sanchez.

Yes. even I felt he is stuffed. may be he has accepted that he is gone in summer. so not showing interest.
