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

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.

A trend setter in the making.



21 Jan 2017 09:17:01
We not going for Fonte. Imagine the confidence that must be flowing through Jones and Rojo right now. What this also tells us is that Jose is looking towards the future rather than signing Fonte. Lindelof may be?

Must be going big in the summer. If he does succeed and brings in his players, I am scared to think the line up we will have come August.

Next year could be the year when Jose brings United back to the level where we truly belong.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 21 Jan 2017 11:53:26
Maybe he didn't want to pay that amount for someone who is 33? Looking to the future as you said.

2.) 21 Jan 2017 13:08:56
£8 million is rather steep. The way Jones and Rojo have been playing and Bailly at the ACON: and Smalling in the bench then would he really have got much game time?

3.) 21 Jan 2017 13:16:59
I don't think its the 8m that was the problem, it was him wanting a 2.5 year deal. With him 33 already that would mean he would be under contract until he's 36. He is a very very good player, but at his age his legs could go on him at any point, next season could very well be a season too far for him tk play at the highest level.

I think if he was after a 1.5 year contract with an option for another year then maybe we would have gone in for him. Apparently the length of contract was the stumbling block over renewing his contract at Southampton.

4.) 21 Jan 2017 22:21:39
He's no better than what we have. Would have been a very average signing. It's not goals against we are struggling with. It's the profligacy up is the main problem.

5.) 22 Jan 2017 21:48:41
Eric he is much better than smalling and rojo. He is a quality defender that would have worked for 1 year, 2 max.

6.) 22 Jan 2017 23:23:05
Agree to disagree. The fact we didn't go in for him suggests Jose agrees with me though.

7.) 23 Jan 2017 11:18:05
Unless you have spoken to jose, then you can't know that.

8.) 26 Jan 2017 23:19:55
Don't need to - we didn't go in for him!

Who else feels yesterday was a game prefect for Fellaini. We had no one holding up the ball. De Gea had to kick long and there is no one better at collecting those kicks than Fellaini. We could have had a better control in the second and final third with Fellaini than Mkhitaryan.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 15 Oct 2017 17:03:28
I feel Jose felt Fellaini was a huge loss Shan. He isn't a fan of Herrera.

2.) 15 Oct 2017 17:55:15
To be fair Syd, herrera has been awful this season. Yesterday it was coin toss between Mkhitaryan and Herrera on who was the worst player on the pitch. Fellaini does provide that option against a team that likes to press.

3.) 15 Oct 2017 21:56:21
Herrera did okay if you ask me? He made more tackles than all 4 centre halves combined, just didn't have many options when on the ball.



04 Oct 2017 03:08:45
Given how well Lukaku has started and with Zlatan to return, would it be feasible to have Zlatan at 10 for fee games. With his superlative technique i am sure he will slot in perfectly. He is a combination of Fellaini with his physicality and Mkhitaryan with his finesse. I say he could be lethal with pace around him.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 04 Oct 2017 14:25:53
My only concern is, would Zlatan disrupt the rhythm of the team?
Would he accept being second fiddle to Lukaku and even start on the bench more often.

2.) 04 Oct 2017 15:23:56
The 10 needs to be able to make up the numbers in cm ibra won't do that.
To play ibra and lukaku it would have to be 2 up top with ibra as the second striker.

3.) 04 Oct 2017 15:50:19
Is a 3-5-2 a possibility? We have the perfect wide men for it. Valencia and Young. Jones, Lindelof and Bailly? Pogba and Matic with Mikhitaryan linking midfield and attack. Would mean no Rash or Martial. I'm not sure I'd like that.

4.) 04 Oct 2017 16:56:17
I worry that he will be shoehorned in irrespective of how we are playing. As an impact sub, starter when Lukaku is rested, he has a role but I don't see a front 2 working.

5.) 04 Oct 2017 17:19:24
I thought he might have some sort of coaching role tagged on at some point. Zlatan definitely has a role to play but it's going to be more from the bench for height and experience or when Lukaku is injured or rested.

6.) 04 Oct 2017 21:51:51
He surely has to be a back up, plan b.

To be there as an alternative to Lukaku on days when it's either not going his way or when he is need of a rest. Or if we are chasing a game, last 10 mins, stick him up top with lukaku and fellaini. See who wins the headers then?

That'd be a nightmare trio for any backline with 10 minutes to go and long balls being pumped up.

7.) 05 Oct 2017 01:09:10
In typical situations Zlatan can sub in for Lukaku with a lead, or if we're losing/ tied and the opposition is sitting back, let both of them loose in the box for crosses. He will start the occasional match, no doubt, but I think how obviously better the entire team plays without him in the lineup means that he'll be a situational player, like Chicharito was at times in his career. This assumes no serious injuries. I like my chances with a 1-1 match in the 89th minute with a corner for which we have in the box Pogba, Jones, Bailly, Matic, Fellaini, Rashford, Lukaku and Zlatan.

Truth is teams are now realizing that pushing up against our counterattack is tantamount to suicide. We're going to see more and more park the bus defenses, and for that I think Zlatan will be a perfect sub.

8.) 06 Oct 2017 16:28:38
Is that "The Sydney"?



03 Oct 2017 06:02:58
Did birthday wish Zlatan today? I was wondering how to write-

Happy birthday, Zlatan


Happy Zlatan, birthday.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 03 Oct 2017 13:21:25
birthday is Zlatan.

2.) 03 Oct 2017 16:06:24
I would wish him a Happy New Year, and ask him what his plans and expectations are for the year ahead, the year 35 AZ.



17 Sep 2017 17:18:36
Minute 60 and respect for Jose just went up. Should have hacked off that useless fellow long time back.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 17 Sep 2017 18:24:21
I assume you are talking abut Rashford. He did not have a good game but your comment 'useless fellow' is a little childish and disrespectful. It's a squad game, sometimes players don't play well which is why we now have a strong bane he. Rashford has been on fire, today he was well below his best, he will bounce back, assuming our fans support him and don't stoop to silly abuse,

2.) 17 Sep 2017 18:37:35
You really don't like the lad.

3.) 17 Sep 2017 18:40:45
You don't have to agree with me Tony. It's a well documented fact on here that I don't rate him as much as you guys do. It's nought for me that he is a local lad. I would rather have Lingard because he at least tries. Just look at that lad in the blue side of Manchester to see how much Rashford needs to work. Schmiechel is agreeing with me as I type this.

4.) 17 Sep 2017 18:51:37
I think he has done ok this season, bit odd that it feels some fans are just waiting for an excuse to have a go at a certain player .
You see it on here a lot what's it all about.

5.) 17 Sep 2017 18:59:41
Shan, I don't agree with you because you are wrong. Clearly Jose and Southgate also disagree with you but what do they know. He was poor today but if you haven't see potential in him then you are letting your opinion cloud your judgement.

6.) 17 Sep 2017 19:04:04
Rash is still a kid, still learning his trade. Yes he does run into the corner sometimes or miss a crucial pass as he doesn't look up, but he will improve on these issues with experience. I think by the time he's 21/ 22 he will be England's most important player.

7.) 17 Sep 2017 19:11:38
This is extremely embarrassing Shan, you don't like him we get it, but you keep saying you don't like him as much as the rest of us but this post sounds more like to hate the 'useless fellow' and more like you saying I told you so because he didn't have a great game today. He has more good games than bad in my opinion and is a young kid, you are sounding very silly with posts like this.

8.) 17 Sep 2017 19:16:17
Dunno you do it to players too jred. Or you will over emphasise when a player you support a lot does something good to validate your opinion. Everybody does it you included. Sometimes i suppose when you have a 'dislike' or don't rate a player too highly people tend to comment on poor displays or pieces of play. Its only natural.
Pundits do it all the time too you see them picking faults in the same players all the time because it bacjs up a point they made previously.

9.) 17 Sep 2017 19:34:49
Ken, a bit like you taking every opportunity to have a go at jred 😂.

10.) 17 Sep 2017 19:39:56
You and Shan are on a different level to me pal.
I emphasise when certain players play well for the simple reason that if I never if would just be constant slagging .
Tony v has been getting stick last week, played well today surprised nobody mentioned it?

The site will be full of it if doesn't play well next week tho .

Don't no what it is about this site 4.0 win and that's a United fans response?
It sounds like he is happy about it

Honestly think people just want to say I told you so .
The lad is just a kid, we won 4,0 it's not his first bad game it won't be his last.

11.) 17 Sep 2017 19:43:55
Extremely harsh of Rashford.
If we played a 3-5-2 he'd have had more joy.
Jose, LVG, england managers, fellow players and even Zlatan rates him.
He can't be that bad.

12.) 17 Sep 2017 19:53:55
Tommy cooper just like that.

13.) 17 Sep 2017 20:34:56
You'd prefer Lingard to Rashford?

14.) 17 Sep 2017 20:38:52
Should also say I agree with most of your posts, just don't get your issue with Radford.

15.) 17 Sep 2017 23:08:48
We win 4-0 in a game we probay would have lost in last few years and some of you are arguing amongst yourselves.

Difference of opinon great but it looks like rival fans on one page.



13 Sep 2017 06:38:07
Yesterday's game just got me thinking. I believe most of the fans on here won't agree with me on this. Fellaini. I can't count the number of times he has played and made an impact on the game. Can you guys remember how many times he has been the best player on the pitch. He may not possess the "class" of a Manchester United player but he does have the heart of a Manchester United player. He was by far the best player on the pitch yesterday.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 13 Sep 2017 07:35:18
Shan. I'm his worst critic and I wanted him gone. But you're absolutely right in that he gives his all and recently, he's also been very good for the team. Less clumsy and more measured. Maybe Jose has had a word with him? But last night, he was the most effective player in our team.

2.) 13 Sep 2017 08:02:23
May be the manager's confidence publicly is rubbing off. He even tried and executed a back heel yesterday. That cheer from the crowd was unreal. He is not the most fancy but still very effective.

3.) 13 Sep 2017 08:28:57
I would have given any man utd fan a run for his money on the hatred i had for fellaini - i was fuming when we brought him.

But latter lvg era and all jose era i can't fault him at all. he's refined his game by which i mean 1 red card in 3 years - not the dirty player we brought under moyes and his attitude on the pitch is second to none really.

Just class attitude and love for utd - did not c it comin but i love him as a utd player now.

4.) 13 Sep 2017 08:39:43
He gives the manager a different option is always a handful, always gives a 100 %.
He was good at Everton,1 of the few who did ok under lvg and has been a part of Jose plans from day 1.
The abuse he has good over the last few year from fans is ridiculous.

5.) 13 Sep 2017 09:23:01
Fellaini was brilliant last night. He was all over the pitch making things happen. He showed real heart and desire. He was even sprinting to close down the opposition when we were 3-0 up.

The support he got from the crowd was great to see, especially after being booed last season which was a bloody disgrace.

Can anyone remember a bigger change in the supporters' attitude towards a player at Utd?

6.) 13 Sep 2017 09:35:09
I am a critic of Fellaini in that he is limited. He had a good game last night however he did what he does best when coming on as a sub and who were the opposition?

I have said since he arrived that used in and around the box he is a real handful as he was at Everton. If you take a look at the 4.4 game against us in circa 2012 he was devastating for them, we couldn't handle him around the penalty area. However, if you expect him to control a midfield as part of a central two, move the ball at pace then it won't work against better opposition. I found myself agreeing with Gerrard last night (the sick sinking feeling improved this morning) when he said almost exactly that. He said in midfield Fellaini caused no concern or issue, they just went round or past him but in the box he could be devastating.

I am fine with Fellaini as plan B, the sub who will cause real problems in the opposition box but do not see him as the answer in central midfield.

Lastly how about some praise for the manager for his handling of him.

7.) 13 Sep 2017 09:43:19
Lol it's all down to Jose.
Fellaini is doing what he has been doing his whole career for everton United and Belgium.

Jose deserve credit for being able to see what fellaini brings to the table even when some fans couldn't.

8.) 13 Sep 2017 11:33:01
"I keep saying the same about Fellaini. He is a player with special qualities and he gives me multiple areas of action, " said Mourinho after Tuesday's game. "He is one of my most important players. "

9.) 13 Sep 2017 13:06:20
Same can be said of ibra jose sees what some fans dont. But you don't copy and paste his compliments to ibra because you don't agree.

10.) 13 Sep 2017 13:26:27
Not really Ken I think ibra done a job last season most people know that but we needed a different type of striker to move forward and we have seen that .
As a free agent for the last few month off the season ibra can offer some cover if required . I don't think we will need him that much .

Done a job for us last season and got Injured, not a great place to be torn ACL and no club or contract so the club have stood by the player .
His agent said last week he wouldn't be back until January and Jose has said today no reason to rush back .
Might come in handy for the last few month might not.

11.) 13 Sep 2017 15:29:29
Redman, I don't think anyone is suddenly tipping Fellaini to be a first choice midfielder for us but I think last night he showed a lot more quality than many thought he had (including me) and maybe he won around a lot of supporters.

I don't think he will fare as well against some of the top teams with more accomplished midfields but I think he is a great option to add some bite and steel when we need to be setting about lesser teams and breaking them down.

12.) 13 Sep 2017 19:55:48

Agree, as long as we see Fellaini for what he really is and are not blinded by performances in easier games.

So you want Bale and then where do you play Martial? In all honesty, if we are going after a winger, I don't see where Martial fits in. You have Rashford and Lingard and Mkhitaryan above Martial in the playing order already. I think a loan to Inter would do him no harm at all.
