Looks as though bakayoko has made Chelsea his first choice.

Just seen the comments from post match conference with LVG. 'I don't understand that they shout attack attack attack, we were the attacking team, not west ham united'

jesus is this guy for real? Does he not understand what this clubs DNA is all about? I know ed002 has said there's no plans to change manager until 2017 but I think this man's day might come a lot sooner.


1.) 06 Dec 2015 20:54:32
He has certainly bought into the lie that possession = attacking football.

That said, I couldn't watch yesterday, but I thought I saw stats showing a lot of shots, just mostly off target.

Ìf we create the chances but just can't convert them, he only bares limited responsibility for that failing.

It's when we have 70%+ possession and only 4-5 shots in total that is really his fault.

2.) 06 Dec 2015 21:09:35
Haven't seen the stats for the game. How many of those efforts were for the second half alone?

Call me old-fashioned, but I like to see my team attempt to attack from the start, when we're playing at home. West Ham were very unlucky not to be going into the break, 2-0 up, and only the most wide-eyed optimist would have had us coming back from that.

3.) 06 Dec 2015 21:11:42
Most of the so called shots were desperate. Misleading stat.

Great chances it was 4-2 West Ham.

4.) 07 Dec 2015 07:35:33
LVG out! he is not changing anything to try and improve performances so for me he has to go, no doubt about it.

5.) 08 Dec 2015 10:53:16
I did wonder how misleading the stats might be.

I remember taunting a mate who supports Arsenal about boring possession football a few years ago. He pointed out that in our most recent encounter, they'd had more shots as well as possession. I made him sit down and watch a recording of the game with me. Sure enough, they'd barely had a shot until about the 75th minute, then started shooting wildly every time they got within 35 yards of the goal.

I'm so glad I haven't seen that mate recently.



31 Aug 2015 20:56:43
Griezmann has just posted a very cryptic message on twitter. Saying it will match tomorrow. stay tuned!

I think this place would go into meltdown if he signed. i'm still sticking to my prediction that he will sign for us.


1.) 31 Aug 2015 21:23:16
WHat did it say? I'm intrigued?

I'd go mad (in a good way) if he signs!

{Ed004's Note - He would be my ideal signing}

2.) 31 Aug 2015 21:27:03
Berahino i would think is still a possibility with Wilson going the other way.

3.) 31 Aug 2015 21:32:04

The closer translation is even more interesting. it's

"Tomorrow it will come true"

4.) 31 Aug 2015 21:33:54
hes publicly said he's a Utd fan right?

5.) 31 Aug 2015 21:37:57
Just seen the tweet? Very cryptic indeed?

New number 11? Let's hope so!

6.) 31 Aug 2015 21:47:27
That's the one player I'd like do see here.

Can play in practically anywhere upfront, score goals, is very aggressive when it comes to attacking, is in a very good age.

That one would make me shut up.

7.) 31 Aug 2015 22:03:15
As griezman actually said tommorow it will come true ?

8.) 31 Aug 2015 22:07:41
I pray it's true don't see it happening tho it would need more than a day remember the fiasco with Herrera and the release clause.

9.) 31 Aug 2015 22:13:05
Thanks Dark, twitter French translator isn't great lol! Yes ed 004 all would be well if we signed him. I predicted it a few weeks back that we would sign him, pay his buyout and be done with it. He is phenomenal.

And yes both him and his brother are huge man utd fans. Maybe it's the dream for him to play here

10.) 31 Aug 2015 22:45:03
Think he said that the tweet is nothing to do with a transfer.

11.) 31 Aug 2015 23:29:08
Yeah publicist came out and said nothing to do with a transfer. Never believe a publicist though. I've worked with a few!!



30 Aug 2015 22:03:30
Big shout from Italian journalist tancredi palmieri that UTD have bid 100mil euro for Bale. Ed002 has said repeatedly that Bale has his price! Have we met it?? Throw in De Gea and get it done?


1.) 30 Aug 2015 23:11:09
Even if we doubled it there is no way Bale would want to leave trophy contenders for that shower today. LVG would pick him but tell him he can only pass sideways or launch long balls when Fellaini comes on when we are chasing games

2.) 30 Aug 2015 23:18:14
Won't happen. Wouldn't surprise me if we get nobody else this window.

3.) 31 Aug 2015 00:56:25
Good post angel.
Shame about Jamie's reply. And here's why!
It's completely ridiculous to announce that LVG would do this or that with a player of Bale's quality. Bale is exactly what we are missing, I've said all Summer that we need something different in the final third and ideally CF and he ticks the boxes. Today's result came about because of a disastrous 5 minutes, including an incompetent performance from our stand in GK. Jamie also bashes Fellaini, why? Because we have plan B? What else do you do with 15 minutes to go when the game plan isn't working anymore because of a nightmare? Look at Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Spurs, Southampton, Stoke, actually anyone barr City who have the gods smiling on them at present and are playing well. Jamie I applaud you for highlighting the total ignorance that exists in the modern day football fan, regardless of club. My advice to you is please take the time to actually watch a game of football from time to time instead of following results and the occasional MOTD. United look 'almost there' to me, today's result was dissapointing but for reasons I'm not sure have been suggested accurately.
Cheers as always Eds.

4.) 31 Aug 2015 00:50:23
Finally people starting to talk and see sense. LVG is beyond a joke. Why are we persisting with this clown? His tactics are awful. We have to get a striker AT LEAST. He's come in, sold Welbeck, sent Hernandez out on loan and obviously won't play him as proven at Swansea. He's let RVP go and got rid of Falcao. We have no options if Rooney is injuredz we used to have 4 top strikers in the great United sides. We're down to 1! AGGGHHHH!!!!!

5.) 31 Aug 2015 01:58:26
We have to sign someone. There are plenty out there who could improve our attacking play.

After today, there isn't an excuse. I just can't see us competing with the attack as it is. We need someone who can put the ball in the back of the next, and can do it on a consistent basis.

6.) 31 Aug 2015 09:52:10
You're right, Ed002 did say Bale will be sold at the right price if they can get Reus.
Honestly, I think this summer is the best time to sign Bale. Next season, Bayern might be after him (and will most certainly get him), trying to push out Robben/Ribery as they have missed out on KDB.

7.) 31 Aug 2015 10:46:55
king giggsy yeah almost there we had three players playing out of position having spent €424 million since Fergie left and it's only 4 games in. We need a Gk a CB a RW and a Striker. I'm not sure how you quantify almost there but 3 goals in 4 games can be called almost there. Yesterday as soon as Swansea scored the second it was game over, that team has no fight in them. we currently have 3 players (DDG who wants out, Shaw and Darmian) that would push for a starting place in one of the big sides. the biggest concern is the style which is terrible to watch and not even successful yeah I hear people would take 1-0 if it meant winning things. We play this boring sideways rubbish, but won't win anything either. the fact we haven't signed any top players isn't a money issue its nobody wants to work with LVG look how he has treated some players really think we dropped interest in Pedro or he didn't fancy playing for a man who publicly hung Valdes out to dry.



28 Jul 2015 12:00:41
Hi Eds, have any of you got any idea what English club was discussing a potential move for Zlatan Ibrahimovic this week. Ed002 mentioned it on Arsenal page a few days agp. Thanks in advance

In the last number of weeks, we have beaten Chelsea, Liverpool and City. we have beaten all of the top 6 at some point this season.

Is Jose taking us in the right direction?


1.) 07 Apr 2018 23:49:22
Can't see how he's not to be honest, with a LB, CB and CM for next season, we should be very very good (i hope👀)

2.) 07 Apr 2018 23:56:47
I'm not what you'd call a massive fan of his angel, but he has improved our points hall and position and delivered our best league finish since AF left, this deserves some credit and certainly further opportunities.

I think what we get on here is people who don't like him don't give him much credit for anything while people who do like him defend him when he gets it wrong or says something daft.

Positions on it don't have to be so absolute, if he's not yr cup of tea you can still think he gets things rite the same as if you like him it's ok to say he gets things wrong aswell but overall yr still happy with him.

I'd find a fair overall assesment is we are improving and moving closer to competing at the top again however sometimes we appear a bit too cautious as whenever we have had to go for it we have looked good.

3.) 08 Apr 2018 00:11:51
Good post, Slate. People coming on after, giving it the big, 'oh how silly do people look after their comments at half-time'. They forget we should have been 5-0 down at half-time, and 6-0 down at the start of the second half. Probably 2 penalties as well. Yes, we stepped it up in the second half, and I'm as ecstatic as anyone, but that was obviously down to Mourinho's Churchillian team talk (that none of us heard), rather than the players who were so poor in the first half.

4.) 08 Apr 2018 01:00:45
Well city's goals were both from mistakes.

Valencia sliced his clearance and they scored from the corner

2nd dea gea kicked it to them

It's swings and roundabouts.

5.) 08 Apr 2018 04:01:50
Players are human and fallible. It’s how you respond in situations like that. Whether you are prepared to lift your game, put in the effort and force your way back into the game. The players did this today.
A bad start, it can happen. There was a lot of pressure on the players and the manager for this game.
They had a bad start but responded. As we expect them to.



15 Mar 2018 20:47:12
Fantastic andy mitten article on espn going about. A journalist I have a great amount if time for. A bit of perspective maybe? Or is he mad? If any of you have the chance, go have a read.


1.) 15 Mar 2018 21:23:44
Good article, balanced and sensible. Three seasons to fully judge, like I’ve said for a while. Still, he’s lost most of my good will (as with most of us) so winning it back will be tough.

2.) 15 Mar 2018 21:41:48
Angelred - Thanks for sharing mate. I needed some perspective after such a shocking defeat.

3.) 16 Mar 2018 07:00:48
Same here Danny. Mitten usually does That. I always find his articles very well thought out and balanced.

Yes RWWD, I agree. But I have many more issues with the players than the coach, regardless of the tactics the attitude and ability of the players on the pitch is just not good enough. That lies much deeper than blaming the coaches of managers.



11 Mar 2018 22:48:15
Shaps. 14 likes on the Liverpool page, that's some going, you don't even get that many on here 😂😂.

Message for eds. If I go to the Liverpool Banter page all I can see is the articles posted by the eds. I've tried logging in on the page, but seem to be blocked from poster's comments?

Also can't see live chat link on MN Utd page on game days.

How can I fix this?

{Ed033's Note -

Thnx ed.



24 Jan 2018 15:01:42
Would be great if we went in for laporte now. What a player but will he choose staying at bilbao or money?


1.) 24 Jan 2018 15:26:56
Would make my day angel! Top player but I think he will choose money.

2.) 24 Jan 2018 15:35:09
Maybe he'll choose to move to win trophies, or work under Pep, or to have a better chance of playing in the World Cup?

As much as I hope City don't get the player, there are many reasons why a player of his ability would be looking to leave Athletic, and even if he is moving for money, so what.

3.) 24 Jan 2018 15:37:57
He'll go to City.

4.) 24 Jan 2018 16:14:53
Bloody hell we are not even in for him.

5.) 24 Jan 2018 16:21:41
Oh Danny, and here I was only having a bit of fun. We signed a player this week called Alexis Sanchez and the narrative all week was pep or money. Maybe you didn't see that headline 😂😂 I'm just having a little dig.

6.) 24 Jan 2018 16:44:26
Ah right, I've just had enough of the wage shaming over the last few weeks. Consider me gotten.

7.) 24 Jan 2018 17:04:53
No worries pal. Lol. But joking aside, he will be a great signing. A much better CB than what they have barring Kompany who is so injury prone. Hard to get players out of bilbao. But 65.million should do it.

8.) 24 Jan 2018 17:27:35
Personally not a big fan of laporte, he is decent but nothing great, he lacks pace and everytime I have seen him he seemed to get out performed by either that Nunez kid this year or yeray last year.

9.) 24 Jan 2018 17:46:51
We're not in for him as we have enough injury prone defenders.

10.) 24 Jan 2018 18:38:15
unless they are a volunteer, doesn't everyone move for money?

11.) 24 Jan 2018 18:50:11
I honestly couldn't give a shiny s##t who city sign I'm more than happy with our squad can't wait til next game 😊.

12.) 24 Jan 2018 20:14:10
Absolutely deano. It's just the irony of the headline 'pep or money'. It was quite disrespectful to our club, history and tradition.

13.) 24 Jan 2018 20:39:36
Indeed angel I'm getting used to the disrespect it shows we are feared again.

14.) 24 Jan 2018 20:58:49
I'm in agreement there pal. Headlines have been anti United lately. Might have more to do with Jose though.

15.) 24 Jan 2018 21:15:29
Isn't Laporte Pogba's best mate . You just never know Agent P just might strike again and then we can sell Smalling to WBA (PLEASE) 😆😆.

16.) 24 Jan 2018 23:22:37
I think smalling has been really good this season again, he’s getting regular games and hopefully he’s going nowhere. Grass isn’t always greener.

17.) 25 Jan 2018 00:02:47
Smalling is a decent player, but he's also an accident waiting to happen. Positionally suspect, has a tendency to rush toward the halfway line following strikers who drop deep, and could potentially be giving away a penalty every game for holding in the box during corners and free kicks. He has good points, strength, speed, and tackling ability. But Jones has been far superior to him in pretty much every respect this season.

18.) 25 Jan 2018 00:39:46
I always get worried Jones will get injured chasing parked cars.

19.) 25 Jan 2018 13:08:17
Unai Nünéz is a far better option!

Younger, looks a better player and his release clause is almost half of Laporte!

20.) 25 Jan 2018 20:03:54
Never heard of him Ronnie . Who does he play for 😆😆.



21 Jan 2018 00:14:56
So am. that ed Woodward doesn't seem to be too bad at his job.


1.) 21 Jan 2018 00:59:17
hmm, how hard can it be to turn up with a blank cheque? Id' reserve praise until he is toe-toe with another clubs rep, with the same money to spend - that's when skill is involved.

Nevertheless it's nice to be signing a truly world class player in his prime.

2.) 21 Jan 2018 07:14:31
Tbf Beast Ed did stand toe to toe with city and got his man, City didn’t have the pull United have so as much as money is involved it was a case of saying sign for United not city and its nearly done.

3.) 21 Jan 2018 09:15:31
WRD that doesn't suit beasts narrative. He obviously doesn't see that United did go toe to toe with a club with much more money.

4.) 21 Jan 2018 10:33:44
And don’t forget our tractor deal 😉 who pulls that off lol.

5.) 21 Jan 2018 11:00:40
Nice to see the club continue to show ambition to be number 1.

6.) 21 Jan 2018 13:39:57
Oh beast, just for once enjoy something.

7.) 21 Jan 2018 16:47:23
Beastie mate are you excited about Sanchez signing? I know you have questioned the clubs ambition and Jose at times which I have agreed with. However, let’s say we had the Monaco manager in charge, do you think he would have been able to lure Sanchez over pep to united?

I do think that Jose was part of the lure for Sanchez. He is still a top 3 in the world manager and I do feel that we have been able to sign a higher calibre of players because they want to play for him.

I think howe is overrated. has had a lot of money at his disposal. Don't fall for 'little old Bournemouth' line. Billionaire backer.

I don't think he has managed to get the best out of the players he has and has had. Poor tactics as well.

I think he would be found out big time at a club the size of united.

Exactly Mort. They've spent over a billion since the inception of the premier league. Average it out for every trophy they've won since then.

Jerd, nobody has said it's all down to Jose? that'd be a riduculous statement, you're making up things to try and illustrate your point, weka when trying to have a sensible debate.

But if the player himself has come out and said Jose has really helped him improve why won't you believe that?

Again, the poor Jose drum? If you actually take the time to read and more importantly understand ed004s points, you will see he is simply making quite a fair comparison between both coaches situations.

And of course pep has done a fantastic job in getting his players to play to the best of their abilities but it is quite blatantly obvious that a) pep had a stronger squad to start with and b) could improve on the squad a lot easier than Jose.

I think ed makes some great points above.

We are not discussing who the best coach is etc. But the mere fact that pep had much more at his disposal. I don't think it's crazy. What's he spent at city? £600m. On top of what he already have, not bad.

16 Aug 2018 17:26:11
Ed004 great posts. Really difficult to disagree with any of the points made. So a player in Andreas comes out and openly praises Jose for helping him develop but we can't say that Jose has developed him? Strange view.

Jred, I have openly admitted that I had to change my opinion of pep, wonderful coach, done a great job.

But surely we can't argue with what ed004 is saying above. He had better players when he went into the club than Jose and he has spent far more and got every target needed, something Jose can not do. We finished 2nd last season to a much stronger team who have spent a lot more money. I think it was a fair achievement given the fact there is no way Jose can compete with pep.

Undoubtedly pep gets a far easier ride too.
