City have withdrawn their offer. Chelsea intersted.

Cant follow the figures though although I doubt any journo knows. The Indy saying Arsenal wanted Martial PLUS cash? and now its 30 million PLUS Miki? neither of those deals look good to me.


2.) 15 Jan 2018 22:54:54
I can't see Chelsea splashing the cash when there is an unknown with the manager. Probably going public to satisfy fans that they tried.


3.) 16 Jan 2018 02:04:16
Replacement for Hazard is my guess. Hopefully just BS, but if they are in the mix it will be a problem for us I think - these foreigners seem to love London, I doubt they spend much time partying, learning the history and shops you can find anywhere - it's just convenience and the 'image'.

I genuinely don't see the draw in London for a professional footballer over other major cities in the UK.

Di Marzio reporting that we have reached an agreement with Sanchez and his agents.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 14 Jan 2018 13:50:28
Than surely we have. that guy is special at news.


2.) 14 Jan 2018 14:13:10
That guy is specially wrong everytime he opens his mouth.

Incredible.


3.) 14 Jan 2018 20:29:19
Yeah sure he is mikon. What planet you living on. Has always been incredibly accurate. Most have some decent sources.


4.) 15 Jan 2018 10:31:48
Incredibly accurate? that's a stretch, sure he is better than some but he is wrong about transfers all the time!

This goes out to Ed002 if he is available. I read somewhere, I think it was the Chelsea page, that United could be in for Fabregas. could you possibly shed some light on it please? Given that we see a Magic discussion down the page, is it Matic or Fabregas that we are interested in, if either.

Shan UNITED boy

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United could potentially be push for Matic as the interest from elsewhere has gone. Fabregas is keen to stay.}


1.) 13 Jun 2017 21:25:38
Sorry Ed, can I clarify, the interest United had elsewhere has gone or interest in Matic from elsewhere has gone?

{Ed002's Note - The other club that was interested in Matic are no longer keen.}


2.) 13 Jun 2017 23:41:11
Cheers for the reply, Ed!


3.) 14 Jun 2017 05:26:33
Thanks Ed. If Fabregas is staying, why are Chelsea considering Verrati? They can't have two similar sorts playing in the same game.

{Ed002's Note - You appear to be on the wrong page.}


4.) 14 Jun 2017 05:38:51
@Ed002

Wasn't the other club that was interested in Matic? If so, have they found someone else they are going for or have they backed out due to a high asking price?

{Ed002's Note - I am sorry - this is the MU page.}

Last year Adidas teased with the Pogba-United ads, this year Huawei has started it with Greizmann. Did anyone see it yet? Jose calling Griezmann.

He doesn't answer the call tho, is it a sign?

Brutally efficient today. I can't believe i am saying this but Smalling was absoltely wonderful at the back today.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 17 Feb 2018 19:46:57
He has a chance of battling aerial balls.


2.) 17 Feb 2018 19:59:23
Smalling did well but he is the first player I'd get rid of in the summer.

{Ed004's Note - I agree we need a cb but I'd rather sell Jones, Rojo or Lindelof before Smalling. He is not good enough to be a regular for us but he offers something none of the rest of them do. He is fantastic in the air}


3.) 17 Feb 2018 20:12:16
We need changing back there ed. i'd get rid of rojo and smalling. I'd give lindelof a bit more time and I'd keep Jones for back up.


4.) 17 Feb 2018 20:18:11
I'd ship out Rojo and lindelof ahead of him, but all three would go if I were the boss. He is so reckless manhandling people in the box and that was a stupid handball today as well.

The other stuff like reading of the game, use of the ball and general awareness are massive failings. He should be a squad player at the absolute most (far down that list as well) .

Let's remember who he was up against today as well before getting too exciting. I think Big Mick down the pub could have looked decent against the attacking threat of Huddersfield - especially with 3 holding midfielders mucking in.

I'd be disappointed being so defensive and handing over possession against Barcelona, let alone the mighty Huddersfield.


5.) 17 Feb 2018 22:32:37
Ed004, he’s a calamity. I’d keep Rojo and jones over him every day of the week. You’d swear the ball was a grenade with the pin pulled out when it comes to his feet. Piss poor for me.

{Ed004's Note - I do worry about his technical ability and we will never be competing with the best with him in the side regularly but he is frequently a standout performer when we play lower sides who he can dominate from the start and play on front foot. At the very least he provides cover for Bailly and even a rotation option (Bailly being very injury prone is a concern). I'd be happy going into next season with Bailly, New Cb (Umtitti, Varane, Koulibaly etc), Smalling, Lindelof and Tuanzebe}


6.) 18 Feb 2018 00:24:50
Smalling is the worst player I've ever seen, and I watch Everton regularly.


7.) 18 Feb 2018 09:42:04
Glad some are seeing the light. A year or do ago I got shouted down for saying that at crucial times he is a ball watcher. Many press photos show this. Also he is a calamity as some one above has said. He is always more interested in knobbling the man rather than winning the ball, but why win the ball if you are not at ease when it is at your feet? Ship him out - should be number one in the exit queue.


8.) 18 Feb 2018 15:07:19
He’s been stealing a living at United since the day he arrived. When you say Smalling, Rojo, Lindelof, young, Darmian, Zlatan, Blind, we don’t half have some very poor players still in this squad. Not one of them would get beat a top 6/ 8 side.

There was a very nice poem someone posted here last anniversary of the munich tragedy. It was one where the great spirits played at Old Trafford with Sir Charlton. Can someone post it again please?

I believe Sean Dyche will never get the respect he deserves like Silva was getting just because of the style of football Dyche plays. He has really made Turf Moor a fortress.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 03 Feb 2018 14:53:36
Its because he is British and not a sexy foreigner. The job he has done at Burnley is outstanding, and he seems like a great guy.


2.) 03 Feb 2018 14:57:09
Totally agree. What he is doing on such a small budget is fantastic. His team is set up to play as a unit, as a team. Every player giving 110% every game. He is a brilliant motivator and tactician. Given the budget constraints his players are not the most technically gifted, but they do not look out of place in this league.

I think adding Lennon to the squad will serve them well. It gives them something extra, a bit of pace and dribbling skill to move them up the pitch and to create space by drawing a couple of players to him.


3.) 03 Feb 2018 17:23:53
Will you have him at United after mourinho leaves? That's the question you need to ask.


4.) 03 Feb 2018 17:48:00
Attack why Not? I just want the best, he is a great coach, tactically astute and has worked wonders with little money. Give him a big job, I think dyche would be Great, certainly the best British manager out there IMO.


5.) 04 Feb 2018 00:22:26
Why not? David Mites. That's why not.


6.) 04 Feb 2018 10:03:38
Dyche, moyes, pardew, big sam, Roy Hudson are at there level now there not big club material a couple of them tried a failed badly.


7.) 04 Feb 2018 11:21:15
Dyche and Howe have done brilliant jobs. They're young, progressive-minded coaches. You can't compare them with Allerdici and Hodgson. Until they're given a chance at a bigger club, how can we know if they're not good enough? Until club's stop running to the first available foreign coach, that'll always be the case.


 

 

31 Jan 2018 21:45:11
Should be ashamed of this performance. Besides De Gea all others including subs should hold their heads in shame. Absolutely pathetic. Spurs are treating this as a training in passing around. Its boots to asses time for a few of them.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 31 Jan 2018 21:53:32
In what way? Wrong tactics or.?


2.) 31 Jan 2018 22:11:16
Get accused of been negative we beat Yeovil, Burnley, stoke and derby and where back first big test and what happens tactics all over the place we don't attract big players are wages does . we need to go back and start making superstars not buying them.


 

 

25 Jan 2018 17:14:49
Ok so that is something now. Jose has extended hi stay at Old Trafford. don't think he has ever stayed more than 3 anywhere. Hope he creates his legacy here with this United team. I for one am happy that he is staying. You can see the improvement. The stability was much required.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 25 Jan 2018 17:18:34
His draw to bring in top top players is a big reason I'm glad he's signed an extension!
I'd still like better football to watch but it's improving as the squad improves!


2.) 25 Jan 2018 17:52:13
If a player lived in a hotel, he would be called a mercenary. Maybe Jose could now show the club and the fans some commitment and go house hunting.


3.) 25 Jan 2018 17:55:58
Only an extra year so hardly a big commitment but least the club doesn't have to pay too much compensation if jose implodes like second time at chelsea.


4.) 25 Jan 2018 18:20:17
I may be in the minority here but I don't think there is any issue with Jose living in the Lowry. For starters he is alone and his family are in London so perhaps he prefers to live in a hotel with his staff as opposed to alone in a house. He has mentioned before that he has everything done for him in the hotel. As long as we are doing the business on the pitch and progressing I couldn’t give two hoots where he lived.


5.) 25 Jan 2018 19:54:01
Absolutely Park. He's near the ground. He saves time commuting. He gets waited on hand and foot. He's got meeting facilities if he needs them. He doesn't have to bother with buying somewhere, furnishing it and then selling it again in a few years. There's no housework, repairs and maintenance. All in all he can get on with his job. Fantastic.

Those who keep going on about it are just making trouble.


6.) 25 Jan 2018 20:00:33
I've already said he can rent one of mine in Worsley at a good rate 😆😆.


7.) 25 Jan 2018 20:08:24
He’s already said he lives in a serviced apartment in a hotel so hardly the travel lodge, he said he feels comfortable that way. 2020 tho, extra year option, stability is what we need.


8.) 25 Jan 2018 20:45:32
I don't care what anybody says Jose is the best manager out there with the possible exception of Pep!

He's a proven winner at multiple Clubs in several different countries. As far as i'm concerned anybody else would be a step down.

Forget all the anti football nonsense it takes time to build a team and we're definitely heading in the right direction.

I've always been of the opinion that if Jose can't make a success of it then we really are in trouble.

I agree it's not been perfect but if we're patient I'm sure he'll deliver!

Totally agree Park and Shaw btw!


9.) 25 Jan 2018 21:37:39
AGreed. We can’t keep sacking managers. Jose is doing a decent to good job. Perhaps taking a bit longer than expected to get us challenging for the title but we are moving in the right direction and he is a winner and has a fine pedigree. The longer is away from Chelsea the less blue he becomes. Oh, and where he chooses to live is absolutely irrelevant to all of us.

Well said Ken and i am surprised to say it but i agree with the beast.

Guys i don't hate Rashford. I would be very happy to see him succeed. But as Beast said, i am just not sure if that would be in Manchester.

I understand the sentiment of all of you with his age and him being local. But i am a modern day man and i live in the present. Its a cut throat world and this business is almost the spear. We want to compete with the best out there and yet we are willing to compromise with mediocre. Rashford MAY turn out to be great but is he good enough now? Can you compete with Real, PSG, Juve, Barca, Bayern, City, Chelsea with the quality of a Rashford? I just don't see it. Besides, how many of these top teams really have the patience to live in hope of developing players and still be at the top. You guys had the patience with moyes or lvg? No. More than half on here still don't have the patience to live with Jose but i guarantee you would kill to have jose as the manager if he were Mancunian.

I do not hate Rashford.

I don't hate the player GDS. I hate under performers. 20 or 30 or 100 is irrelevant to me. As long as the player is performing he has my 100% backing. But when there are excuses being thrown about, player has lost the respect. You compare Rashford to Henry, isn't that a bigger woooooowwww?

And yet AJH, you would have Pep over Jose every day of the week. Double standards is it?

And just to clarify, i am not saying sell him. Loan him out and see if he really has the hunger and the passion and commitment to come back a better player. Lingard is his best mate so he should learn something from him.

I make a very simple point - Rashford isn't performing at all so just treat him as he should be rather than dishing out excuses of his age and his hometown etc etc etc.

Trust me i was as happy as any other United fan when Rashford hit those goals on debut against Arsenal. I was elated to see a newbee turn up at Old Trafford and deliver. But i have been disappointed for 2 years and i refuse to take it anymore. You ask yourself this - Rashford has two teams, Manchester United and England. Is he good enough to replace the striker from any of those teams right now?

And just FYI, Pep won't touch Rashford, he has Gabriel Jesus who is consistent in front of goal. Someone who has the pedigree to keep out Aguero must have something special. Rashford can't even keep out Martial.

GDS, i will take that bet. And its not a few games, 2 and a half seasons. That is more than just a few games. Where do you play him in this team? Ahead of Lukaku? Sanchez? Lingard? Mata? even Martial? Running around like a headless chicken isn't football.

Rashford will most likely be off in the summer. Sell or loan is the manager's wish.

Park, i understand your sentiment but noway would you pay 50m for Rashford if he were playing for any other club. Calvert-Lewin, Iwobi, Richarlison, Solanke. Rashford is just one amongst these and i am sure you won't be paying anything to get any of them. Rashford's Manchester birth certificate is the only thing keeping him at the club right now.

Syd, Rashford hasn't been bit part at all. He has the most number of appearances for the club. He didn't uproot any trees when he started in the cups this season. And he has been woeful for 2 years straight.

People will again comment on my dislike for the player, but its not dislike. I like Manchester United and i don't care from where the player is as long as he does the job, which Rashford isn't doing.

Right Ed. The same nonsense thinking that made superstars like Cleverley, Macheda, Welbeck et al. The fact is the class of 92 was the last. I don't have the romance of him being a local lad and all that. For all i care he could be from Saudi, he needs to perform which he hasn't been doing for a while.

On Rashford i am not saying sell him. But treat him like Lingard then. Loan him where he can play week in week out and let's see if has the mental strength to utilize the talent he posseses. let's be honest here, he is behind Lukaku, Martial, Sanchez and even Zlatan in the United ranks. A loan would do him no harm.

Shan UNITED boy

{Ed001's Note - Martial? I don't see it at all, he is an awful winger and an ok striker. Could be in the future a very good striker, but he is never going to make a winger until he learns close control.}

The fact is that is high was season 1 and has been low every season since. He needs to start delivering. Like Martial is.

{Ed001's Note - and if you had got your way on this kind of nonsense thinking, Lingard would have been sold long ago.}
