BBC reporting that neither us or arsenal will agree to the sanchez transfer unless miki goes the other way.

No idea how much truth is in this, especially given how Ed02's previously stated that transfers involving money and an additional player are generally unlikely.

Imo if that's what's needes to get sanchez in I'd be more than happy, but it doesn't fill me with confidence for this transfer to happen.


1.) 16 Jan 2018 13:11:00
I can’t see it. I think miki will turn them down and it will go tits up.

2.) 16 Jan 2018 13:27:12
That's what in thinking. But then again, he must know now that he's not really wanted, so a move is going to be needed to reignite his career.

3.) 16 Jan 2018 13:28:18
Looks like it's other agents trying to scupper the Sanchez deal. If he comes brilliant . But let's not spend all January chasing a lost cause.

4.) 16 Jan 2018 17:15:59
It's being reported now it would be a straight player swap.

5.) 16 Jan 2018 17:51:52
Mhiki’s agent now stepping into the deal.

Enough said.

6.) 18 Jan 2018 13:22:23
Wenger saying deal is likely.



11 Jan 2018 12:53:59
Apparently we have put in a bid for Sanchez.

Made my day hearing that.

Dam it, was trying to correct a typo and sent that too soon.

To continue, mourinho's comments after the match were insulting as well. Talking about how it's standard for utd to be knocked out the champions league and he's knocked us out himself.

He needs to take some responsibility for a poor team selection and poor tactics.


1.) 14 Mar 2018 00:19:39
He lost most of the fans tonight RedD with those tactics. And he lost the rest with those disgraceful comments after. No class and for me he has to go at the end of the season as no amount of money spent is going to change his style of play. We have some very good players but we need the right manager to get the best out of them.

{Ed0333's Note - he’s had no class most of his career I’m surprised your only recognizing it now mate



13 Mar 2018 23:24:39
Fellaini for mctominay was such a bad decision. Firstly, mctominay is playing well and in good form, secondly the wig has hardly played football for four months, and thirdly, what kind of football are we intending to play if we start with him in midfield? It says everything about how mourinho approached this game.

Then there 2 goal Rashford being moved from the left wing where he played great against Liverpool to be replaced by sanchez who is playing shite. Again, makes no sense, there was just no need to do that. Why not leave sanchez in the center and play rashford instead if jesse? Or even drop sanchez and play jesse in the center?

That was such a depressing rubbish show. I don't have anything positive to day about it, and mourinh'comments.


1.) 14 Mar 2018 01:44:54
Liverpool fan here in peace. Agree with you RedD, how Mctominay was dropped i have no idea. I thought he was a key reason you got the win on Saturday. I thought that after the weekend JM would have the confidence to step it up a bit and let your players do their thing. On paper, you are all over us in every area bar the forward line. I don't know which is more frustrating, Klopp's tactical naivety at times or Mou's tactical pragmatism.

2.) 14 Mar 2018 03:17:06
Agreed. If Jose is going to straight up putting a timebomb in the midfield 2 with Matic, then Jose can't complain when it explodes in his face. Honestly, couldn't figure out what Jose sees in Fellaini. Couldn't pass, couldn't dribble, clumsy.



01 Feb 2018 08:02:43
From football 365, really made me laugh:

"There is an urban myth that you are never more than six feet from a rat. It’s nonsense, of course, but there is an accurate football version of the claim: you are never more than 15 minutes away from Phil Jones doing something silly. "


1.) 01 Feb 2018 10:35:31
I'm sorry RedD. I think Jones has been pretty solid defensively throughout the season. Last night was a blip in his performance and I don't think this should affect his confidence, I think the only player who looked and still looks like a mistake to happen is Smalling.

2.) 01 Feb 2018 11:02:46
Phil Jones is woeful, Smalling woeful, Ashley Young woeful. Valencia isn't even a Right Back!

3.) 01 Feb 2018 13:52:04

Haha, you would have thought so from last nights live chat.



14 Jan 2018 11:19:06
Bookies now have utd as favourites to sign sanchez.

No intention of getting into some of the "would you rather" posts. Sanchez is available and if he does come, there's no doubt he will improve us. I'm quite excited by it.


1.) 14 Jan 2018 11:43:38
Sanchez not in arsenal squad.

2.) 14 Jan 2018 11:38:03
This feels a lot like the EVO transfer. A little excited very hopeful.

3.) 14 Jan 2018 12:34:51
Help me out here 12, who is EVO?

4.) 14 Jan 2018 13:07:19
Evra? He was a jan signing wasnt he.

5.) 14 Jan 2018 13:12:47
MDH I can only think he meant RVP the letters on the keyboard are next to each other.



09 Jan 2018 10:26:42
Sanchez, potentially available, not ucl cup tied, looking like headed to city. We should be moving the world to convince him to come to us, he's exactly what we need. Stick 50m on the table and pay him top dollar, he could be the difference maker we need.


1.) 09 Jan 2018 10:42:45
Agreed but hasn't he got his heart set on City?

2.) 09 Jan 2018 11:05:03
Agree but i thinks its clear he has noninterest in coming to utd.

3.) 09 Jan 2018 11:35:54
How have people become aware of him wanting city? I know it was nearly done in the summer, but is that all this is based on? And what makes you say he has no interest in us? Is this based on anything?

4.) 09 Jan 2018 11:37:58
I see bookies have city as almost a cert, with both pool and PSG ahead of us. Hopefully that reflects bets made rather than liklihood of destination. But it doesn't give any hope whatsoever.

5.) 09 Jan 2018 11:55:06
My thoughts are based on we have shown no interest in the press (no that reliable) and 002 has not mention that we have looked at him at all.

Now given he would fit perfectly. in our squad and would cost next to nothing by todays standards then i'd assume we may have asked but were told its an absolute no from him.

6.) 09 Jan 2018 12:42:51
Its his new tattoos. One is "I love pep" and the other is "Stockport forever"

Personally I question his attitude and commitment.

7.) 09 Jan 2018 15:50:02
I hope he goes to City. I appreciate that he is a very good player, but I'm not sure who he displaces - especially how well City have played this season.

Similar to Mort I think his attitude is questionable based on what we've seen at Arsenal - laughing when being thrashed by Bayern etc. If he goes there and doesn't play will he be similarly disruptive? Or will the likes of Sane and Sterling get pushed out to make room and be similarly unhappy?

It could be a good thing.

8.) 09 Jan 2018 18:55:53
He is far better than anyone we have who can play in his position. He gives city more strength in depth too how can it not be anything buy good for them?!

9.) 09 Jan 2018 18:58:11
Becks. for me he is world class. Easily arsenals best player anytime I've seen him. I'd love him at United but I think he is set on city since last summer.

10.) 10 Jan 2018 02:53:05
I don't actually think he will reject United if we (let's say) offer 50-60k more than what City offer him.

Just listening to him talk in the interview, I see what people mean when they say people are winners. Even in conversation it's all he focuses on. Definitely going to be a positive force in the dressing room.

I'm not trying to piss people off. But I'm curious how unusual it is for a player to move to a club that isn't his first choice.

In the real world lots of us work for companies that don't even reach our top 100 first choices.

I suppose if di Maria is anything to go off, it typically ends badly when you're a highly paid elite footballer.

Let be put it anither way Ed.

Previously you said this :

{Ed002's Note - The deal is simple - if MU pay way more than one would expect for the player and way, way, way, over the odds in fees, they might be able to sign a player who wants to move to Real Madrid. }

Given that comment and the fact we may now sign him, I'm asking 2 things.

1. Is this a case of utd paying way over the odds compared to what other clubs are prepared to pay?

2. How unusual is it for a big player to not get his first choice club, and how much of a problem would you expect that to cause when playing for his 2nd / 3rd etc choice club?


{Ed002's Note - The situation is as I explained. And it changes nothing in terms of what I said.}

Ed002, 2hats your thoughts on it? Is this a case of utd being stupid enough to pay more than anyone else, as you've previously suggested, or do you think this has the potential to be a good deal?

I may be being a but stupid, as you've said he doesn't want to come here and that RM is his preference, but I don't know how common it is for a big name player to not go straight to his preferred choice and as such the potential trouble it can cause.


{Ed002's Note - I don't understand your post at all. I have explained that after a meeting on Tuesday it may be clearer in terms of what will be happening. I have no idea what you are prattling on about nor what you find confusing from my very short and very simple comment.}

I would probably be leaning towards the calm, give him another season, side of this debate. But those post match comments were more offensive than the pathetic effort shown on the pitch. If he'd had come out angry, complaining, shouting or even upset, I'd have written the whole experience off, said he needs time, and not been left so angry.

I'm genuinely astonished that he'd come out with those comments and surprised I haven't seen more shock in the media.

I think de gea has a bank of credit with us so large that he can score own goals at will and still come out standing tall.

Those comments annoyed me more than the loss. He basically said: yeah we lost, but we're losers and we've been losers before so it's nothing new, you were losers when I played against you and you're still losers now.

Note how it shows a disconnect between him and the team, it becomes a them and not an us. Those comments were disgraceful and he should receive disciplinary action.

This is because we don't press, it isn't part of the strategy. We hold position, and pressing distorts the overall unit, it's almost like zonal marking. We hold position to minimise space, and wait for an error.

The only excuse I cam find is that jose doesn't trust the defence, but given his history I don't buy it, this is how he sets up a team.

Given how some pages get so little action, maybe just start with the clubs with lots of posters. I think this is a pretty cool idea.
