Several reports saying TFM going out on loan to Hertha Berlin.


1.) 04 Aug 2018 21:28:55
Would be a shame as would have like to have seen him get more minutes. Especially with Valencia out and Dalot an unknown quantity. Hope this doesn’t mean darmian won’t be moved on. Guess we will have to wait and see how this pans out.

2.) 04 Aug 2018 22:11:30
Surely means a Darmian is staying now. The Italian international could be a revelation in a 3-5-2, or indeed at right back used properly.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

3.) 04 Aug 2018 22:24:11
Intersting Ed. Darmian def leaving then.

Very, very busy time coming up with ins and outs.

4.) 05 Aug 2018 04:08:03
Tfm will benefit from that i hope he plays in his more natural position. Periera looks a better player following n his ex perience should have sent martial on loan last season we could have got back a much more rounded player.

5.) 05 Aug 2018 07:40:55
With darmian likely leaving and dalot and valencia injured i'm guessing we'll have to play tuanzebe lindeloff at right back?

6.) 05 Aug 2018 07:41:40
Darmian will go to Italy so there is still plenty of time to shift him out as the deadline only changed in the prem.

We may use him the first couple of games whilst we wait on Valencia and Dalot and then sell him.

7.) 05 Aug 2018 07:59:40
If a LB is signed, then we may even see Young shifted to the right with Shaw and the new LB on the left. Final few days may be exciting and nerve wrecking. Checking the sites every 15-20 mins.

8.) 05 Aug 2018 09:22:37
We have Valencia and Dalot, Jones, Bailly, Lindelof, new signing, Shaw and Young, enough to cover any formation without Darmian. Presuming Smalling and Rojo leave that is aswell.

9.) 05 Aug 2018 15:39:02
Personally I’d keep Smalling and sell rojo and add Toby. Job done at centre half.

Still think we need a real left back more than a right forward if we are to make another purchase.

If Pogba leaves we will most definitely need to replace him too.



13 May 2018 14:16:43
Whats all this about Martial . with the squad at 12,00 today, then drove off apparently . not in squad at all now. Toys out the pram? genuine reason for leaving? interesting.


1.) 13 May 2018 14:41:06
He is injured.

2.) 13 May 2018 14:43:24
MUTV saying it's an injury.

3.) 13 May 2018 15:55:12
Carricks last game, last game of the season and he is not in the stands, not going to be on the pitch with the others at the end of the season? Cannot see it as an injury myself.

4.) 13 May 2018 16:31:59
If he's thrown a strop he can go. Sick of time wasters and bottle jobs.

5.) 13 May 2018 17:04:23
Wasn't pictured at training Friday didn't arrive with the squad today .
Or so it was reported.

6.) 13 May 2018 18:05:09
Rumours his missus went into labour.

7.) 13 May 2018 18:18:29
If he was injured he’s at his own stadium, doubt it was that urgent he couldn’t be with the squad.

8.) 13 May 2018 19:26:43
I m making a wild guess that Jose want Justine Klubeirt and so he is driving Martial Out. he is making sure things stay in a way that he surely leaves.
Now I m not saying what type of decision it could be.
But just a guess.

9.) 14 May 2018 13:56:18
Is that Justin's sister?

10.) 14 May 2018 17:51:38
GDS, it's the name he goes by every other Saturday night in that club you love in Amsterdam. Lol.

11.) 14 May 2018 18:19:01
He’s not good enough to acting like a diva. bring in Bale and flog him if he’s playing up.

I’d love to see him work out, but under Jose it’s just not going to happen for him and not sure he has the fight to play for us. Shame.

12.) 15 May 2018 23:59:44
Martial needs to move on for the benefit of his career. Another expensive Depay. Loads of hype. Again don't think he a talented as people make him out. I see a guy that's pretty inconsistent.



20 Jan 2018 22:51:23
Back page of "the sun" journo called Nixon writing that Wenger asked about Luke Shaw during Sanchez negotiations and was told no way.




15 Aug 2017 10:22:21
Couple of media outlets in France including L"equipe reporting today Aurier is going to Spurs .


1.) 15 Aug 2017 11:09:16
Don't think that's the worst thing in the World. Is not a very bright man, that comes across very arrogant and disruptive. Decent enough player, but that doesn't make up for the baggage he comes with.

Lucky for us I don't think it's an area we are truly desperate to sort out. I think Valencia will be first choice and despite his critics I do like Darmian and rb is his best position. You can't beat having an Italian defender when you need to defend.

2.) 15 Aug 2017 15:12:04
Bear, have to disagree there.

Aurier is not without his issues but I think Jose will know how to handle him. RB is an area we need to strengthen. Tony V has done a great job filling in but can't play 60 games a season there. Aurier is (allegedly) available for a decent price and is an upgrade on Darmian and Tuanzebe, possibly on Tony V, too.

3.) 15 Aug 2017 15:31:36
Ed002 said in recent sharkopod Aurier will likely join, doesn't see why he won't, he agreed to join Inter and Juve per reports too.

4.) 15 Aug 2017 15:31:44
All correct was agree in full.

5.) 15 Aug 2017 16:48:14
I wonder if peoples tune changes if he was coming to us:)

6.) 15 Aug 2017 17:46:07
Massive upgrade at right back for us, but also a massive tool. We shall see where ends up.

7.) 15 Aug 2017 20:08:23
I though the ed said it was a deal that could be done as the player was available .
Is he really a massive upgrade at RB?
Do people think Jose is going to drop Tony?

8.) 16 Aug 2017 08:25:01
Tony is 32 and has a niggling knee injury that may cause issues this season. I'd go all out and get him, and use Darmian / Shaw / maybe Blind at left back this season.

Don't get me wrong I'm a big fan him but he can't do it all season alone and our system relies on fit full backs overlapping.

We talk about youngsters a lot on here filling in but this season we need to go for the title. If they are good enough they'll get a game. If not, we will buy replacements.

9.) 16 Aug 2017 12:12:55
Eric but Tony will be first choice and play most the games do you think aurier would come to sit on the bench .
Or do you see Jose dropping Tony?



18 Jul 2017 19:31:35
Hard to imagine who we will turn to if we don't get Matic/ Dier/ Fabinho as all seem out of reach for one reason or another -

This is not a question for the EDs BTW -they have explained who are targets are (ED 02 in detail) just saying things can change in a heartbeat but the 3 mentioned plus Bakyako/ Naingoglan as options also out the picture now

Interesting few weeks ahead.


1.) 18 Jul 2017 19:50:51
I wonder if considering the situation with griezmann now if they wouldn't go back to trying saving in midfield.

2.) 18 Jul 2017 20:03:09
I don't think we will turn to anyone if his targets aren't available, panic buys like we did with fellaini is not the answer and I don't think it's a root Jose will go down here, Carrick will still give u a quality 20 games a season, Herrera can play that role although I prefer him pressing higher up at tempo, and hopefully pereira and TFM will prove to be valuable squad players if called upon.

3.) 18 Jul 2017 20:13:57
Hate us to go into panic mode as we did with Fellani - I think Jose isn't that way inclined, but I do think its a position that needs filling to get the best out of Pogba and Herrera - this coming season could be one of the most competitive for years so is it really the time to be relying on Pereira and TFM, although nothing would be sweeter than one of them being a success in the first team?

4.) 18 Jul 2017 21:19:58
Why is Matic no longer an option?

5.) 18 Jul 2017 21:20:16
Does anyone know if there's a possibility we could get griezmann in the January window? or to have any chance it'll have to be next summer? I know it will be difficult for AM to find cover in January, but could this have been arranged now, for a January deal to happen?

6.) 18 Jul 2017 21:44:22
Arsenal were playing some of their best football when cazorla was plaing in the middle dictating play. Mikki or mata could do a similar job. Not saying to do it just there are loads of other options already within the squad. So as people have said its better to get the target you want or wait till one is available.

7.) 18 Jul 2017 21:40:29

8.) 18 Jul 2017 23:00:08
Renato Sanches? Jose's did mention the name sanches where many assumed he was talking about Alexis Sanchez but may well have been Rebato Sanches or the other could be to push Phil Jones in to the midfield role.

9.) 18 Jul 2017 23:38:51
Don't fancy Phil Jones in midfield but Renato Sanches would be a great buy, he ran the show at the euros and isn't having any joy at Bayern. Bet they would let him go to.

10.) 19 Jul 2017 04:38:39
Fuser - apart from the excellent info here from the EDs, most of us I suspect look for info from the media and most outlets are saying Juve are in strongly for Matic, he is happy to go there and Chelsea don't want to sell to us . Conte seems a volatile sort I bet he wouldn't be too pleased if the board sold Matic to us .

Just my take on it.

11.) 19 Jul 2017 07:39:22
Juve don't seem to be willing to pay Matic's asking price though (around 40 million) . You guys just need to pay up the asking price and I'm sure Granovskaia will be very happy to sell to you ;-)

12.) 19 Jul 2017 11:12:36
The Matic deal will happen. Matic is already forcing Chelsea's hand saying that he want's to leave.
I expect the Matic deal to happen before the Perisic deal which is just getting silly now.
If Jose wants the player so badly then just pay the bloody money to Inter and get it done. I think we are all sick of it now.

09 Sep 2018 07:53:36
I had not read this little snippet anywhere else before now re Pogba - Daniel Taylor writes a piece in yesterdays guardian asking if Pogba will always have a wanderlust and to keep moving on.

He writes 2 years after leaving Utd although winning trophies at Juve he made it known he would consider moving back to UTD (65 MILL) Moyes was interested but had doubts why having played at 2 of the worlds biggest clubs he couldn't settle. and so didn't pursue it.

How true any of it who knows.


1.) 09 Sep 2018 09:24:44
Yes apparently moyes was worried about his lack of loyalty as he has been at so many clubs but if you think about it he's only been at la havre, manchester united and juventus.

He is hardly jumping from club to club every season.



05 Sep 2018 16:34:49
John Terry - out of contract. What are peoples thoughts on giving him a contract til the end of the season strictly as a defensive coach? You cannot deny he knew how to defend and how to organise a defense . So, not registering him as a player let's be clear on that .


1.) 05 Sep 2018 17:26:57
A good players not necessarily a good coach. It wouldn’t surprise me though as it would draw attention towards the club and we know Ed Woodward’s good at that side of the job.

2.) 05 Sep 2018 18:38:40
Personally thought he had terrible positional sense but had a good bit of pace to make up for it.

3.) 05 Sep 2018 19:09:28
Better off asking Rio or Nev to sort defence out. 😆😆.

4.) 05 Sep 2018 19:40:42
Thought I’d sent this earlier but HELL NO. Keep him away please. Horrible person.

5.) 05 Sep 2018 20:32:34
Never. The only way he should be getting that stadium now is as a paying customer either match day or museum tour.

6.) 06 Sep 2018 03:06:12
As a person, he's marmite, BUT, when he went to villa 99% didn't want him, but fair play to him, he got the defence organized, improved the attitude of the players and got them playing for the jersey rather than trundling along, he also brought a calmness and reassurance as well both on and off the pitch, and not to be ignored was how he helped the younger players realise being a professional footballer is a privilege not an entitlement, so yeah, he could do a job at united but it would never happen i reckon because of his love for chavski and the history with united.

7.) 06 Sep 2018 08:17:53
Hire John Terry?

Won't someone please think of the WAGS?!

8.) 06 Sep 2018 10:03:05
John Terry with terrible positional sense and pace to make up for it? I think you've got the wrong player mate. JT was one of the best at reading the game and was never blessed with pace. He wouldn't go near your club anyway even with Jose there.

9.) 06 Sep 2018 10:12:54
Classof82, are you sure John Terry did all of that? You don't think the manager and coaching staff had anything to do with improving the abilities of the players they had?

I haven't read or heard of Terry ever being a good coach.

As we have seen with many top footballers they struggle when it comes to management/ coaching.

How do you teach someone something that came naturally to you? If you never had to learn the skills then how do you show someone how you learned them?

Generally the less able players make better coaches/ managers as they had to work harder at getting to the required level. So they have more scope to teach others.

If we want to bring in a former player to coach then I would look to one of our own first. They know what it means to play for our club. Also John Terry is an awful human being. We don't need a member of our coaching staff teaching our players how to racially abuse their opponents and sleep with their team mates wives.

10.) 06 Sep 2018 10:30:48
Amazed Villa haven’t re-signed him for another season. Time for JT to head to the US I’d say.

11.) 06 Sep 2018 18:24:31
Might make the players more hungry if they thought he might get near their wives?

12.) 07 Sep 2018 00:03:23
Terry had awful positional sense an reading of the game. Another overrated because he was English and had "passion" and threw himself around like a headless chicken. 2nd most overrated English player of the prem era.

13.) 07 Sep 2018 00:20:22
Shappy-if you asked any villa player if they'd take terry back, they'd bit your hand off for him, on a footballing level, i hate to say it, he'll make a brilliant manager, and that you can take to the bank.



01 Aug 2018 12:13:18
Seems Martial is getting fined for not turning up for training at Carrington. Only one way this is going to turn out now, terrible shame if this lad doesn't make the most of his talents somewhere, but I can see his career going the shape of the pear.


1.) 01 Aug 2018 12:31:16
Very unprofessional of him.

2.) 01 Aug 2018 12:36:12
All his own fault. Too fond of sulking rather than working.

3.) 01 Aug 2018 13:13:58
Has he actually been fined? All i can find is speculation of a possibility of a fine.

4.) 01 Aug 2018 13:15:07
He is clearly talented but seems to have a questionable attitude (putting it kindly) . The price paid at the time seemed a risk and the fact nobody seems to want to buy him suggests his reputation goes before him. Either that or we are asking silly money, but then everyone seems to be doing that nowadays.

5.) 01 Aug 2018 13:29:18
If it's true then it's a terrible shame. He might not be happy and he might want to leave, but there is the right way and the wrong way about exiting a club.

Tony, apparently there is loads of interest, Barcelona, Juventus, Real Madrid, Bayern, PSG, Chelsea and Spurs have shown varying levels of interest. However, we aren't interested in selling unless it's for a fee north of 70m. Which is what is putting teams off.

6.) 01 Aug 2018 13:46:03
Not sure there is much interest. Tabloids linked a few clubs with him but no offers.
Same tabloids that you say not to believe when they link uz with every player. Do we only believe the tabloids and click bait on out going players?

7.) 01 Aug 2018 14:10:33
Ken, Ed002 has said several teams are interested but not at the price we keep quoting.

8.) 01 Aug 2018 14:24:49
The sooner he is gone the better for all concerned if he is not acting professionally.

9.) 01 Aug 2018 14:48:20
Tevez, Balotelli, and now Martial all quality but . 😆😆.

10.) 01 Aug 2018 14:49:28
If this is true then get rid of him. He isn't anything special from what i have seen of him so far. One great goal against liverpool was the highlight of his career at our club.

11.) 01 Aug 2018 14:50:20
Shame to see him leave but I hope he goes on to show his undoubted talent elsewhere.

12.) 01 Aug 2018 14:54:47
It was a great goal though Singh.

13.) 01 Aug 2018 15:45:54
it was a brilliant goal but the man himself is a little baby . He thinks he plays for free and is acting like a little child. Get rid of him we won't miss too much when he goes.

Id say get rid of Pogba as well if he doesn't want to be here. We need to move on from these two players and buy players that are willing to fight for the spot and manager.

14.) 01 Aug 2018 15:54:50
I do agree Singh on martial. His attitude is a major concern and no point keeping someone who doesn’t want to be here. Pogba on the other hand I would be gutted to see go. I know he wants out and the club and manager are happy to facilitate it should the right offer come, I worry we will regret it. He will become the best midfielder in the world imo.

15.) 01 Aug 2018 16:47:06

Th3re are a lot motr midfielders then Pogba out there. Juet look at Savic and Verrati. If a player doesn't want to play just get rid of him . It is not the end of the world, players will come and go.

16.) 01 Aug 2018 17:28:57
To much reported and said during this Saga since long. he is a fan favourite because of his direct comparison with The great Thiery Hanrey, and his goal vs Liverpool. He has done well in his first season as CF but after he have been moved to wings, he started suffering. mostly the reason being lack of support from wing backs. So mentally this has stuck kids mind heavily and with over frustration he has lost it. Now in present scenario he doesn't see United playing according to his suitable style he is getting wasted on bench as result. So he has made up his mind to leave. And at this stage, he should leave as well and make something of his career.

17.) 01 Aug 2018 17:50:51
Absolutely nothing confirmed but the haters are out in force getting excited over a bit of click bait .

Support the team . Man United not Jose United.

18.) 01 Aug 2018 19:36:04
Never seen what the big fuss about Martial is. If anything, he’s blocking the path for more committed young players in the youth set ups who actually want to be at the club.

If we get just north of what we paid for him then we will be doing well.



11 Jul 2018 12:33:45
Impressed by Pogbas performance and also that last night he dedicated the win to the schoolkids trapped in the cave in Thailand, saying they were the bravest.

Tomorrow the backpages will no doubt have the word hero splashed on them because tonight someone scores a goal or saves a penalty - I get that, got plenty of my own.

But in the modern world the word hero is bandied about to easily, imagine volunteering to go into a cave where 95% of the worlds divers wouldn't even attempt to go and pull out 13 people over 10 days. no one knows their names or faces really, and we won't hear of them again until the next such emergency. The real deal right there.


1.) 11 Jul 2018 13:55:17
Pogba has had a good tournament, needs to keep it up and continue playing in the centre.



06 Jul 2018 18:12:38
Im the first to admit i don't watch a lot of European football -but I've watched every France game in this World cup to watch Pogba.

I haven't seen anything to suggest Umtiti would fare well in the PL. the smallest bit of pressure and he is all over the place, passing very poor, some very basic errors in his play, maybe he doesn't get much to do at Barcelona but if we were in for him until he signed his new contract then on his W/ C performance so far (a bit unfair i know) then we haven't missed out on much.


1.) 06 Jul 2018 21:17:11
I agree umtitti has looked very shakey. Glad we have passed on him/ he has signed a new contract. Lindelof on the other hand has been outstanding. Play him!

2.) 06 Jul 2018 23:30:01
Of the two I would definitely go for Varane. Umiti is a very good player and I would take him over most of our CBs but is maybe suited to a team that plays an extra 10m up the pitch than France or United do.

yes that was the report yesterday afternoon in a few tabloids .2 squad players from Barcelona plus not enough money to buy Toby/ Boateng (thank god) for Paul Pogba . whose agent said when we signed hm was a 150 mill player.

Dembele got to be in the mix if that's the next club for PP.

If its the same report (s) I've seen today as the Pogba speculation goes in to overdrive is that Barcelona would be offering Gomes and Yerri Mina in the deal which is very uninspiring.

A Pjanic + Sandro might soften the blow -not as easy as that of course .

I would say the average supporter has no clue what goes on at the club, or how difficult it is to get players in.

You only have to look at the press who don't seem to know what the real targets are.

In a big club run like a corporate global business who really has the power?

Plus how many managers last 5 years at a club so how far do you back them, how many players want to stay 5 years, who wants to go north of London if they choose UK.

Its not black and white.

The best part is a tabloid will scream " Exclusive UTD agree terms with X, medical in next 48 hrs" 3 hours later the same paper" Exclusive UTD won't be signing X". an endless stream of keeping advertisers happy and people clicking on the story.
