Leaked photo of Sanchez in the utd kit

Sanchez at Carrington

1.) 22 Jan 2018 08:22:34
I've just seen this on sky sports.

2.) 21 Jan 2018 23:57:51
I read that both clubs are having to update work permits which is why the announcement is taking a while. I wonder if any of the Eds can confirm whether this is the case?

{Ed002's Note - Obviously they need changing - you make it sound like there is a delay.}

3.) 22 Jan 2018 12:56:57
Work permit won't be much just a case of updating the address of the employee and employers details.



27 Jun 2017 23:29:42
Reports state,

Real Madrid and Man Utd have agreed the sale of Morata for 62 million. ALVARO left his holiday early to go to manchester to get deal done.



10 Jun 2017 10:30:35
Hi lads

Great to see the site buzzing again and some oldies coming back ed002 also.

Im feeling good Zlatan contract extension has not been exercised so long as we acquire a top goalscorer. I have one worry and that relates to the possible regression of players coming through, If JM does his job right he will have a great rotatable squad full of talent and high spirits.

How would you feel if we signed lindelof and keane, Then sent out on loan smalling/ Blind or both with recall clause.

Then if we offload WR, AY, MD, PJ, LS and AJ, Is it safe to say we will have sufficient strength in depth and Cover with TFT and Tuanzebe promoted


1.) 10 Jun 2017 10:48:11
Jesus! can't u just spell the full name of our players :D.

2.) 10 Jun 2017 11:41:38
Who the hell is TFT? Literally the only only who is often known by his initials you got wrong 😂.

3.) 10 Jun 2017 11:52:59
Timothy fosu tornado? Surely u have all heard of that little whirlwind?

4.) 10 Jun 2017 11:42:17
If we signed lindelof and Keane, along with Bailly, Marcos Rojo, Tuanzabe etc why loan out Smalling and blind? If we don't think Smalling is good enough for our squad, which he isn't, then sell him. Blind is ok cover as he's her versitle. Keane I'm not keen on at all. Think there's plenty better options that him. Don't get the Keane love in.

5.) 10 Jun 2017 13:29:26
Keane had a very good game against Germany. Therefore he has become a Young in demand top player.
I've only seen the odd highlight here and there this season and he has played well with the edpected mistake her and there.
Being an former UTD youth player there will always be a love in. I don't think he's quite there yet but he may get there at UTD, but he might be better off at Burnley for another season.

6.) 10 Jun 2017 13:39:02
Why not just sell smalling and blind and who will want them on loan in the first place, also if we sell luke shaw we will only have 1 lb for atleast first half of the season as rojo will be out for a long time, how is that sufficient depth and cover.

7.) 10 Jun 2017 15:44:47
Stand, I don't get the Keane transfer either. as you said there has to be better options out there.

8.) 10 Jun 2017 14:55:11
Jones should be soldiers before those two. BLind has got a footballing brain, comfortable on the ball and can pick out a pass. A versatile squad player that can cover numerous positions. Arguably invaluable because of that reason.
Smalling like Jones is error prone but his has the pace to make up for it.
Both Smalling and Jones are injury prone. Injury prone players have been out Achilles over the past 5 seasons.
EDS are there any interest in Smalling and Jones?

9.) 10 Jun 2017 23:05:46
Of our current bunch Bailly is by far our best Cb, and judging by last season Rojo is easily our next best. The season under LVG he played Lb was was terrible. This season moved into Cb I thought he was fantastic for the most part. I'd sell jones, Smalling and blind before him for CB.

10.) 14 Jun 2017 14:20:48
I would spell all their names but im on Android phone and it auto corrects when i press send.



26 Nov 2016 15:01:31
Did the JM public criticism of players give the players the kick up the backside they needed and stop players believing they were bigger than the club? I feel Jones has a chance to prove his worth and doing it and Miki is beginning to find his feet, This will probably mean we might kick on with securing CL qualification this season.

If fans have a ST and they don't show up to a game they still pay the club and get no refunds.

If you owned Manchester United would you deal the same hand to players who failed to show up after 2/3 games, If I was in charge I would, then maybe they might focus more on the pitch instead of the bank balance.



06 Jul 2015 16:43:53
I did say yesterday that UTD & Soton had agreed a 24.5 mill deal for schneiderlin yesterday and look what's happened today.

No schneiderlin in training at Soton as he is ill lol. Anyone check Our medical centre yet.

1.) 06 Jul 2015 17:04:53
Yep d deal has been agreed . bt dey dnt want to anouce it yet .u find out 2moro. glory glory . and dere is possible transfer going underground

2.) 06 Jul 2015 17:07:39
Seems like it's false and he isn't ill. Even if he was ill he could have attended the team meetings.

3.) 06 Jul 2015 17:11:18
Lifeofismarhill are you Ali G

4.) 06 Jul 2015 17:13:09
Or you know. Could genuinely be ill?

5.) 06 Jul 2015 17:24:18
Is this just how he was not mentally prepared or feeling well enough last year when Tottenham came for him? I think Koeman is ready to sell and it'll go through soon.

6.) 06 Jul 2015 17:28:28
Koeman literally just said that Schneiderlin is travelling with the rest of the squad to Austria for pre-season.

Ive just seen 002 is on a break from our page! The last time i logged on it was a very naughty Scouser who pushed 002 of the page for Gerrard comments

Has a MU toxic commited a red card offence or is 002 avoiding all pages during the Transfer window

Gutted now.

{Ed001's Note - all pages.}

1.) 18 May 2018 08:39:52
Always one numpty isn’t there.

2.) 18 May 2018 11:20:31
The one chap able to provide us with actual transfer information driven away from a pages literally designed for transfer rumours. Shame.

3.) 18 May 2018 11:52:12
Because a few idiots couldn’t take ed giving his opinion on Gerrard. Such a shame as ed’s Knowledge is like gold dust.

4.) 18 May 2018 13:38:07
Pure gold. He was right that LVG would not work out, that it was as too soon for Memphis and that Jose as not a good fit and that we would be counting the cost once he is gone.

Unfortunately there are too many I. Here that get personal/ abusive if somebody has an opinion that differs from their own.

Enjoy the break Ed002. Maybe you can use the time to unpack those last few boxes.

{Ed002's Note - We have had a lot more delivered (yesterday) that are now sat in the garage.}



03 May 2018 04:32:42
If there was a report chart ( records ) available to the public! totaling the attendance, Injury, treatment, duration and cost? i'm pretty sure we would most likely top all of the columns in the report. If so i cannot understand our intrest in Gareth Bale. He is a good player on his day but visits the treatment room far to often to buy him.

We have for too long played like driving our cars with warped brake discs and worn pads.

It won't fix the problem buying good brake pads to work with warped discs.

We need a fresh overhaul in areas and bale does not make the cut unless he is at a bargain price to afford the risk.

1.) 03 May 2018 05:40:11
RDF I am not against Bale being signed but the money involved. It can be put into better signings which will ensure us a longer term success.
I totally agree that he is one the most injury prone player and probably spends more time recuperating than playing on the field. There is no doubt if he is fit he can be a world class player. He will probably join us only if the board sees him as a short term key to our getting back the PL title though I would question if it is worth the money spent.
I’d rather we use the money to beef up key signings in MF and defense since we are quite potent in attack with the likes of Lukaku, Rash, Martial and Sanchez.
Hence for what we spend on Bale, I feel we can buy a couple more good players.

2.) 03 May 2018 16:59:39
Reddevilfan, nothing wrong with trying to stay on top, is it?
SAF managed that for a very long time in the PL table, now we try to defend the top spots we still have :D

On another note, I believe it is more beneficial to invest in Martial and Rashford instead of buying another star at the end of his prime.

I still remember not understanding why Ronaldo was playing week in week out without really contributing, but the reward for that was marvelous!



30 Apr 2018 19:50:31
Reading everyones posts and agree with a lot of them. We do have a mix bag of spanners in the toolbox however.

We have some fast forwards ( not sure about RL ) that can on their day make good runs behind but our Midfields fail to thread the ball through quick enough or over cook it.

Have we got ( Apart from AS ) players who can track back and when we regain possession break forward at pace!

Im interested to hear your views on whether we need quick sparks or short paced players to start winning.

1.) 30 Apr 2018 20:38:17
Alan Sugar?

22 Mar 2018 14:57:58
A reply to Pique post ref Roy Keane

That sums it up right there in the second last sentence. it was 'Roys Dressing Room'.
The main difference in Manchester United when they were winning things and the before and after.
So, those who say if he was such a leader then why has he not been as successful as a manager? Back then Roy was playing, so he wasn't asking anyone to do what he wasn't seen to be doing himself, and he was proving on the pitch that he had the authority to 'own' the dressing room. His actions on the pitch gave credibility to his voice off it.

1.) 22 Mar 2018 15:33:00
We lack leaders for sure and that is very evident when things are going badly. Nobody steps up and pulls the team up or calls for calmness when need be. Valencia should not be captain but I can’t see anyone in the mound of Keane in today’s football. Keane, Evra, Vidic, Ferdinand Neville were the embodiment of sir alex on the pitch. They themselves had such high standards and knew what it meant to play for united. Today the players who should be standing up such as smalling, Jones, Valencia and young do not do it. Add the high number of player turnover and managers and you can see why the values of sir alex have gone. Jose needs players on the pitch who would run through brick walls for him and fight for him. He has a few in matic Lukaku bailly and De Gea. But the others aren’t at the moment and we need the players to step up. The mentality is not right and it is clear Jose is testing the players and provoking a reaction to see if they can handle the pressure. I would give it to Lukaku as I think he clearly leads from the front on the pitch. I think he won’t shirk away from the responsibility and won’t burden him down. I think he would flourish.

2.) 22 Mar 2018 19:48:25
Park, you're either a leader or you're not. There's no in between. You can't suddenly make Shaw or martial or fellaini into leaders. They have to prove on a day to day basis that they can lead the team. This applies to training and all daily matters.

3.) 22 Mar 2018 20:25:06
I don’t see any leaders. We have some great players and some are as tough as nails but I am not seeing big personalities who can direct a team and grab them by the scruff of the neck. It’s a gap right now I think.

4.) 22 Mar 2018 20:33:14
That’s true AAA I’m not expecting shaw to be a leader. But at least step up and have a stronger mentality. That can be developed.



25 Feb 2018 08:17:21
Just for fun

How many lads here would take pochettino of spurs to manage utd now?

Or do we stick with the same JM boring football. Poll below

{Ed033's Note -

Pochettino or Mourinho Poll

1.) 25 Feb 2018 08:50:48
The reults so far spk volumes for some of the 'supporters' on here.

2.) 25 Feb 2018 09:17:49
So anyone who doesn’t want to keep Jose isn’t a real supporter?

3.) 25 Feb 2018 09:27:50
Ezrs it actually speaks volumes on the quality of the job mourinho has done.

4.) 25 Feb 2018 09:37:18
The results so far says people want a more entertaining team. When you end a game thinking you are lucky to have the best keeper bail you out of trouble on nearly a weekly basis while you don't create much chances you do think we need to improve.

And Pochettino is one of the better coaches going around and that can be proved by Real Madrid having him as one of their main choices if they replace Zidane.
Pochettino plays high energy football, develops youth and regularly challenges for top four. The only thing that he hasn't achieved is win major trophies but I think that will come for him in time. Nobody expects Spurs to win any trophy at the start of the season anyway.

5.) 25 Feb 2018 10:44:08
Jose -Born winner 😆😆.

6.) 25 Feb 2018 10:55:39
Seems to have been the argument since SAF left, win trophies or play exciting football, we don’t seem to have been able to mesh both BUT who has, Pep has city playing good possession football, I don’t think City are the best flair team in the league tho. Poch, Klopp, Wenger all play this attacking, free flowing football and come nowhere near a trophy, José has been very pragmatic in the main but has won us trophies and get us highest in the league since SAF, so again it boils down to style vs substance and the legacy of Fergie continues to get better, we probably admire Fergie more now for achieving both style and substance than when he was here, it’s not easy clearing to combine the two.

7.) 25 Feb 2018 11:26:35
Spoiled by Fergie 😁😁.

8.) 25 Feb 2018 11:28:00
Pep turned city's defenders around in 12 months though. stones wind more headers and tackles big improvement. and otamendi his passing and overall game has improved under pep.
We can say we haven't conceded a lot but there's 0 improvement in our defence.

9.) 25 Feb 2018 11:28:29
Pochettino has achieved as much as Moyes did at Everton but with more money to spend.

10.) 25 Feb 2018 11:30:18
I want jose to stay. I also want the football to improve. I would like to see him have 1 more window to complete his squad. I know that's not the mist popular view but i honestly believe that with a couple of proper full backs a cb and a midfielder to olay alongside pogba and matic things would improve dramatically.
I think we will see a very positive reaction from pogba over the next 5 games starting today. A couple are must not lose games but 3 or 4 are must win games.

11.) 25 Feb 2018 12:26:31
Leahy. Pep sold 5 defenders and soent a world record for a rb a world record for a lb. Club record 2nd highest in world for a new cb and spend near 50m on keepers.
Did he imorove kolorov? Zabeleta? Sagna? Clichie? Hart? Navas? Nolito inneacho? Nasari? No he didn't he sold them all in 1 window plus others. Suddenly the likes of sterling sane stones look much better because they have better around them.
Thats what needs to happen to smalking rojo valencia yiung fellaini darmian blind etc. Then maybe pogba martial lukaku etc will shine a bit more.

12.) 25 Feb 2018 12:25:48
Spurs are a good team with a manager that gets the best out of what he s got and not cries over money I can imagine how good he do with 300 million.

13.) 25 Feb 2018 12:48:48
Ken that's never going to happen with smalling and rojo, they aren't good enough full stop.

14.) 25 Feb 2018 13:05:00
That's my point leahy he needs to be allowed sell the poor players like pep was and build his squad.

15.) 25 Feb 2018 13:10:20
Joyred: I missed when Moyes finished 2nd with Everton or even top 3, remind please.

16.) 25 Feb 2018 13:29:04
Jose and us fans don't trust Smalling Shaw and to some extent Jones and Blind . The defence needs an upgrade and hopefully that will include an Umtitti or a Varane. 😆😆.

17.) 25 Feb 2018 16:16:59
The poll introduction wasn't exactly written from an independent mind, lol.

Ed 004

I don't want martial to leave and obviously ZI will force him down the pecking order.

If this happens I would very much rather AM go on loan to another PL club. If AS leaves Arsenal then I would like AM to go on loan there with obvious clauses etc. The Perisic issue is dragging out and highlights MUFC issue with not paying the asking fee at that present time. The 20m increase is on us and hopefully we learn.

{Ed004's Note - But what incentives would Arsenal have to play and develop our youngster? It would probably make more sense to loan him as part of any deal for Perisic.}

Agree with a lot of that and players are only running on 6/ 10 apart from bailly, Herrera, Jones, Miki and rojo which you lot want axed? Is he not good to have as cover?

We need a vote here too see how many believe griezmann will make it at UTD and not turn into another Forlan.

AG fits well into the way AM play. We do not play like AM and I think it will take AG a season to play well.

Oh let's buy Pogba. Yet nobody bar 1 or 2 read what Ed002 said. Pogba/ Agents DEMANDS meant RM stepping back.

IMO I bet he wants a lot of clauses in his contract. So let's buy Pogba for €100 million and loose him for App €25 million next season 2017 when he throws a tantrum or finds a watch.

We are never happy it seems. let's sign some more slow lethargic looking players to chase other teams up and down the pitch. We forged and identity over 2 decades that has since faded away from brilliance like Wazza fall from grace. To get utd back to the top will be like getting wazza banging them in ( not grannys ) . We clear the deadwood ( fat ) get some pace back and avoid those who spend longer in the mirror than my wife. How many years before we say enough?

Great post shappy

If we signed Veratti ( PSG need to sell to balance the books ), Jorginho and Kimmich then I for one would be very very happy. Thus also made sweeter with all the prospect of developing players in Chong, Gomes, TFM etc etc then we will soon be playing a youthful squad and no more OAPs.
