Rumours of Barcelona in for Bruno now.


1.) 28 Jan 2020 13:57:49
"Manchester unitrd were never in serious talks for fernandes, it was all propoganda orchestrated by sporting and spread via the Portuguese press to force a sale this month. The club are fully focused on the rebuild and will push forward with the targets they have identified for the summer" my guess is that will come out Thursday via Simon Stone or Samuel luckhurst. All utter BS but they will peddle it none the less.

2.) 28 Jan 2020 14:03:17
On a serious note and how far we have fallen. Spurs enquire about Bergwyn. Two days later he his having his medical.

Where as we spend alomst 4 weeks chasing Bruno and we are still no closer to signing him.

The board, The manager, The so called superstars in our team are dismantling this club brick by brick.

I fear for our future as a footballing power house.

{Ed025's Note - it goes in cycles RTR, united will be back mate believe me..

3.) 28 Jan 2020 14:09:16
Tim_99 what rebuild is this? To bring back Alexis. LOL it's just laughable. There is no rebuild, there is no plan. Nobody from the top down knows what they are doing at United.

4.) 28 Jan 2020 14:50:02
I know that mate, I was just paraphrasing the BS the club will put out via their media buddies to justify their incompetence. I don't buy any of it believe me.

5.) 28 Jan 2020 15:14:17
Not going to happen until they get rid of those running it at the moment ed025.

{Ed025's Note - changes will be made angel but they need to be, for me it would be the owners and their puppet woodward but of course thats just me mate..

6.) 28 Jan 2020 15:33:43
Cycles is nonsense. If you are run badly and don't make the right decisions then you struggle. Liverpool have proved that! They've got good owners now who back the unbelievable manager they have and look at the difference.

7.) 28 Jan 2020 15:34:26
Can only hope Club saving their money for “rebuild” in te summer, including arrival of Pochettino and Sporting Director he wants.

Have to feel sorry for Ole though, must know what’s probably going to happen now, so will have to work with what he’s got.

8.) 28 Jan 2020 17:23:18
I also agree Damon86 football doesn’t go in cycles. Why is it only in the English league football goes in cycles, you don’t see Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Dortmund or other big clubs going years not competing at the top of the table. It stems from poor running of the club, poor management that rest on their laurels. United from the position they was in thanks to Fergie if we’d planned right would of remained successful but no future planning put paid to that. As long as the clowns are still running the show United will challenge again for years.

9.) 28 Jan 2020 19:44:00
Nellym - actually other leagues do go in cycles. The difference is that in Spain for example, most of the league I'd so far behind Barcelona and Real that their down cycles just mean they are fighting A. Madrid for second. In England, the quality gap is smaller, so a bad spell drops you further down the league table.

10.) 28 Jan 2020 21:06:08
I disagree if you are a top, top team you will always be qualifying for the champions league or at least in the top few spots. Look at AC Milan for example they've been in a mess for a number of years now.

11.) 28 Jan 2020 21:45:55
Thorne- the difference being that manchester united is supposedly the biggest club in the world and after so much success we should of stayed well ahead of the chasing pack.

Listening to Talk Sport this morning (yes I know Talk rubbish) and big Sam was the guest on the Alan Brazil show. The had Rene Mulstein on the phone discussing Marcus Rashford apparently meeting with Mino Raiola about becoming his agent which is very worrying if true.




19 Jul 2017 11:22:21
Just putting this out there. What about Adrien Rabiot for the central midfield role.
Very talented with the ball at his feet, great passer and is still only 22 years.
One of my favourite midfielders at the moment.


1.) 19 Jul 2017 11:47:05
I'm not a fan personally, I can see the attraction with his ability on the ball. But he is far too languid whenever I watch him. Looks like getting out of a walk is a big effort and seems feeble as well. I don't think he would suit our league and we are ponderous enough. I love dynamism in the midfield.

Reminds me of Possebon, remember him, haha?

2.) 19 Jul 2017 13:02:47
I think you must of been watching Possebon instead on Rabiot Beast. There's a reason why he gets in the PSG side week in week out and it isn't because he plays like Possebon.
Perhaps your comparing hair styles instead of the football styles?

3.) 19 Jul 2017 13:23:25
I still hope we go after Matuidi exactly what we need someone to control our half of the pitch cover the defence and cover so much ground better than Kante.

4.) 19 Jul 2017 14:51:09
True that Simo, but there are lots of players that play week in week out for top clubs that I don't see the fuss about.

I'd also prefer Matuidi - I appreciate he is older but so what, we aren't exactly great at nurturing talent and we never sell for a profit, so it's short term performances we need. 2-3 years is fine for £35m now imo.

5.) 19 Jul 2017 16:40:37
All about opinions Beast. if I am being honest I don't really rate Matuidi. I think his best days are behind him now at 30 years old.

6.) 19 Jul 2017 17:58:40
Matuidi is absolutely quality. Would be the perfect signing. Gets about and puts a shift in. Ideal mourinho player.



17 Jul 2017 10:33:43
Are we really going to pay 40 million for a player that will be 29 in 2 weeks time?
It's not that I don't like Matic but I think Chelsea will have our pants down with the price.


1.) 17 Jul 2017 10:39:00
Hi Simo,
Don't forget the position Matic plays. He has a good 4-5 years left at the top level at least. I actually think he will still improve over the next two years so all in all in would be a great signing for me. He is a very good player, just doesn't fit into Conte's system quite so well.

2.) 17 Jul 2017 10:42:32
If he plays till he's 40 then its good business.

3.) 17 Jul 2017 10:43:08
That seems to be the going rate atm, City paid 50m for Walker who is at best a good RB with EPL experience. Matic is a far better player with greater experience, while being only a couple of years older.

Transfer fees have gone silly this summer and I don't think anything can be taken from comparing today's transfer fees against any from before, even those from last summer. If teams of Everton's modest current standing within the game can go round dropping we several 30m deals in one window then that really shows you the level of crazy we have got to.

Remember the shock at how much we sold Ronaldo for at the time? Looks like we got ripped off now and not just because of what he achieved but when you consider we sold a Balon d'Or winner for the same amount you could sign Walker and Pickford.

40m for Matic in this window looks very fair to be honest.

4.) 17 Jul 2017 10:56:36
Isnt that how much Milan paid for a 30yr old?

5.) 17 Jul 2017 11:52:46
Age doesn't matter if the player is going to do a job and improve the team.

Look at zlatan for example.

6.) 17 Jul 2017 12:34:25
I'd pay £40 million for a 29 year old Carrick.

7.) 17 Jul 2017 12:44:11
Age does matter in one respect. A good 23 year old might reasonably be expected to maintain or increase in value after 4 years, a 30 year old may not be worth anything at the end of the contract. It won't be the determining factor, but it is relevant.

8.) 17 Jul 2017 12:47:38
Some of the tabloids saying Juve are ahead of us for Matic, personally I don't believe that . BUT if its where he goes, and Dier doesn't look likely, Monaco saying Fabinho not allowed to leave this window . where would it leave us?

Not impressed with Carvalho at Lisbon . wonder if there is a plan D?

I can imagine Jose is anxious right about now over this position.

9.) 17 Jul 2017 12:53:53
Zlatan is hardly the same kind of player is he. let's be honest he hasn't really got the same work ethic as Matic. Stupid comparison really.

10.) 17 Jul 2017 13:07:30
Fabinho is a better option. Made Monaco look awesome last season . 😆😆.

11.) 17 Jul 2017 14:30:36
or we can pay 35 million for an unproven one season wonder and then sell them on in 2 years for nothing. Depay and few others come to mind or buy a proven croatian international who can really improve us.



10 Jul 2017 12:48:33
Bakayoko linked this morning.
I would take him or Fabinho, both superb players in their own right.
I relay can't see Chelsea selling Matic to us now after the Lukaku ordeal.
It's starting to get interesting now.


1.) 10 Jul 2017 19:08:14
What's this rumour about Bakayoko having dodgy knees though hence Chelsea are shying away from the deal?

2.) 10 Jul 2017 20:29:50
He had a little knee injury hence the medical with Chelsea was held up. The deal will probably still go through.



22 Jun 2017 10:58:07
I see that the Fabinho rumours have resurfaced again this morning.
It's a no brainer for me, Mourinho has to go out and get this kid.
He's young, can play as a holding midfielder and a right back.
He even managed to score 11 goals last season and create chances / assists for other players playing as a holding midfielder.
He's perfect for us and it will give Pogba a bit more freedom so he can get forward and express himself.
I don't want to see Pogba taking the ball off a center back and passing it about in his own half, he needs to be the player making things happen further up the pitch.


1.) 22 Jun 2017 11:18:00
Would not object to either or both Fabhino and Matic. It's potentially a big year and we don't know what will happen formation, form or injury wise.
They offer different types of play and with them and Herera/ Pogba we would be strong and have bench depth no matter how we played.

2.) 22 Jun 2017 13:33:03
Brad - if we did sign both I think it's nailed on that Jose would play the pair against the bigger teams. It might be exactly what Jose is looking for.

3.) 22 Jun 2017 15:08:46
If we sign the pair it might at last mean that we can get rid of fellaini.

David Brooks looked like a top player until he got injured and it was a bad injury as well. I would be waiting to see how he comes back before even contemplating buying him. He has now returned to full on training so let's see how he gets on in the last 9-10 games of this season if it gets finished.

We will have the usual clubs like Real Madrid and Juventus offering us 40 million plus two of there 30 year old plus players that don't even get a game for them anymore who don't want to leave anyway. I just hope that we tell them f**k off and at least get back the 90 million that we paid for him. If the likes of Maddison or Grealish are now valued at 60-80 million pounds, whether you like Pogba or not he is a better player then both of them therefore we should be getting top dollar for him. That's not to mention the amount of money he will generate off the field as well. I just hope United don't get there pants pulled down just because mardy arse Pogba and is agent are crying for the move. I can't wait to see the back of him and that agent.

Matic and Fred have been the two best players for the past 3 weeks. I must admit I thought Matic was done but he’s playing really well. Cracking finish tonight against city as well.

If they don't want to back Ole then why come out and say it. Give the guy a chance and get him some reinforcements through the door.

I would be more than happy with Grealish, Bellingham and Sancho. Move Pogba on as soon as possible.
I rate Bellingham very highly and think that he would be pushing for a starting place in the first 11 on this first season. He has everything, good passing range, pace and power. He doesn't look like a 16 year old. He will really kick on playing and training with high quality players at United.

Just look at Everton and what they have spent in the last 2-3 seasons. It has to be the right player and the right fit which is where United have been going wrong since Fergie left. I'm still not 100% convinced by Ole but i do like the players he's brought in so far and it looks like he is trying to get the right type of players in that want to play for united.

I think that if Ighalo is happy to play mainly as a substitute and as a back up for Rashord and Martial then i would give him another year at the club. Ole may be planning on bringing in another forward in the summer, add to that the emergence of Greenwood as well it's a tough one to call.

I really want to see Axel get a run, i think that lad could be really special if he stays fit and gets a proper run in the side.

He had another good game yesterday, i thought he was the best player on the pitch with Matic. They both worked there ar*es off from start to finish. He's getting better every game and i have changed my opinion on him, i think he's won over a lot of Man U fans.
