Di Marzio tweeting Fred deal done, if he says it it's good enough for me. Griezmann to decide where he is going befor WC too.


1.) 02 Jun 2018 16:48:49
deal was pretty much done some time ago just not formally announced to the public.

2.) 02 Jun 2018 17:41:09
Pretty sure Barcelona are still favourites for Griezzman last time I checked.

3.) 02 Jun 2018 18:05:13
Genuinely no idea how good Fred is and what type of midfielder he is?

4.) 02 Jun 2018 19:16:15
From what I have seen I think he will sit more comfortably with Matic allowing Pogba to push forward with more free roll. If that's the case our dynamic will change for the better.

5.) 02 Jun 2018 21:08:52
Barcelona are not favourites in the exchange. To stay put is a certain according to the odds.

6.) 02 Jun 2018 23:11:15
Think the Griezmann one has more chance of happening than Ronaldo coming back.

7.) 03 Jun 2018 00:08:11
Does this mean no room for Ander? Could well be sold.

8.) 03 Jun 2018 01:35:29
Hope Herrera will stay. He might be behind Pogba, Matic, and Fred if Fred indeed comes, but he is a valuable player. Tactically aware, committed, and he loves the club.

9.) 03 Jun 2018 05:30:32
Torn on that as he will then stop any of the young lads getting a chance.

10.) 03 Jun 2018 08:14:48
I say cash in on Herrera, he's ok but goes down to easy and gives to many free kicks away, if we get Fred in he will be the link between Matic/ Pogba, Herrera will be a bit part player on big wages which is pointless IMO.

11.) 03 Jun 2018 09:28:36
We should keep herrerastill need some decent squad player matic Fred and pogba will not be available every game.

12.) 03 Jun 2018 11:23:45
Sorry FZZ I just meant out of other clubs Barcelona are favourites. You are right in that the best odds are on him staying put.



11 Aug 2017 14:11:12
Whats peoples opinions of Jose in talks with Zlatan do we really want him back, Will he be happy as a bit part player, do we really want to be paying his wage instead of signing someone else. More importantly how funny is this whole Countinho saga.


1.) 11 Aug 2017 14:28:00
I don't want him back, he has been a great icon but his age and lack of mobility are a concern as is the expectation he will have of playing. I don't see that it makes sense for us at all.

As for Coutinho, I love that after tapping up VVD Liverpool are getting a taste of it.

2.) 11 Aug 2017 15:03:57
Got to say its time to move on. Felt really sorry he couldn't play in the Uefa final after all he did to get us there and what he did last season but to pay his wages again now seems daft but it would be a real slap in the teeth to Rashford and Martial now if they were edged out to accomodate him.

Dont forget these are big seasons now for Martial and Rashford, throw Ibra in and I think you won't see the best of those young lads.

3.) 11 Aug 2017 15:06:17
If he's happy to accept a bit part role playing as an when and wages aren't too high I'd be ok to have him in the dressing room.

4.) 11 Aug 2017 15:19:27
Totally agree with that mort. if we need goals and they aren't coming from the young ones. (who deserve their chance) . He's handy to have around.

5.) 11 Aug 2017 15:19:58
I think his experience and stature could prove to be vital come the business end of the season when we are hopefully still challenging.

6.) 11 Aug 2017 15:28:48
Hopefully on Feb 1 next year we will still be challenging for 4 trophies. Jose likes his big powerful strikers and lukako can't play every game. Having ibra around gives us 2 powerful strikers and 2 speedy ones so we have good options.
As long as the deal is sensible wages wise it's a yes let's keep him from me.

7.) 11 Aug 2017 15:44:03
More deluded ridiculous nonsense on their page again, asking the ed about it the ed telling them he wants to go and then the heads go firmly in the sand refusing to believe that their South American icon wants to play for Barcelona. deja vu anyone 😂😂.

8.) 11 Aug 2017 18:18:45
Ibra coming in when he's fit until the end of the season is a good move. It will keep the forwards on their toes knowing that he's coming, and will bring that vital experience he too. I know people will say that it will block younger players but think of it this way, they all have from now until then to cement a place in the side, to prove they are good enough to keep him out of the team.

9.) 11 Aug 2017 19:08:17
And do you think he will sign a deal knowing he has to rotate danny?

It's a bad move imo we should be building a side that gets lukaku 40 goals a season and a few from the supporting cast . I love ibra and I'm grateful for some of the special moments last season but I think it's time to move forward and I think with ibra signing again it will stunt our forward momentum.



31 Aug 2015 17:40:49
Rumours that Wilson could go out on loan to WBA too. That would mean Januzaj, Wilson and Chicarito all going out with only Martial coming in at the moment. They must be more coming in at least a wide player or striker


1.) 31 Aug 2015 18:57:23
One more striker is surely in

2.) 31 Aug 2015 19:30:58
I think that Berbatov is available



02 Jun 2015 14:04:04
Have to say Madrid have been very shrewd with the DDG transfer. Get Benitez in which will cause a bit of unrest with fans then sign DDG to smooth things over. No matter what u think of how they conduct themselves, they are good at what they do.


1.) 02 Jun 2015 15:06:09
Madrid have just got that pull about them being 10x champions league winners and being a part of the so called Galacticos but they do a lot of things wrong in my eyes including letting Carlo Ancelotti go. I don't see Benitez as a step up and I think it won't be long until the fans are calling for his head when he fails to topple Barca. Getting rid of a manager who just won the Champions League just because they failed this year by a point or what ever is ridiculous and if it were chelsea we would be slamming them. Too much respect for Madrid in my eyes no matter how good they can be.

2.) 02 Jun 2015 15:11:17
Madrid are an absolute toxic club.

3.) 02 Jun 2015 16:18:31
Benitez isn't just a step down, he's the whole bloody staircase!

4.) 02 Jun 2015 16:33:32
If its on sky i beleive it! If he wants to go let's get at least £30mil snd push for lloris



20 May 2015 22:12:06
Michael Zorc announces Hummels has decided to stay at Dortmund. Press move straight on to Otamendi, amazing how unashamed the British Press are.


1.) 21 May 2015 09:36:28
Has he said he'll stay or is it just him saying that he has held talks with the player and his agent about the future and it went well?

2.) 21 May 2015 15:34:31
Hummels is happy to see out his contract if Dortmund don't want to sell him.

Not only have we managed to get ahead on points in the race to 4th but our goal difference is now greater than that of arsenal and city which is some feat given we had a negative good at Christmas.


1.) 10 Feb 2019 18:16:17
Sure is to get better than City!

Totally agree jaimej79.what a transformation. Where will it lead us to?

4.) 11 Feb 2019 09:00:12
Amazing result yesterday 9 goal swing on goal difference puts Utd in the driving seat for top 4.



02 Jan 2019 12:40:42
Skriniar apparently could be available for €80 million according to Tuttosport. Would anyone else like him signed.


{Ed002's Note - Mr Mourinho would.}



10 Aug 2018 10:34:45
Well now the dust has settled and some press have reported their take on our transfer failures it is time to reflect. I think some of us can understand maybe the owners telling Mourinho to do what he is paid to do and coach for once. The present squad certainly has some talented individuals and a few players yet to fulfil their potential. All the reporting was about our clamour for a CB, I think the owners have a point in that Jose has already brought 2 CBs into the club which he hardly used last season so maybe he should find a way of making his purchases work. Midfield we were short of someone to help out Matic and Fred was bought to solve that. In Sanchez, Rom, Rash, Martial, Pogba, Jesse, Mata we have players that should create a lot of chances per match so Jose must find a way of playing that does just that. The thing i am struggling with this window is not replacing the LB and RB position with top level players. Young and Valencia would not get near any other so called top sides team in Europe yet we have persisted with them for what will be the third year now. In todays style of football the wing backs are probably the most crucial area to get right. Unfortunately ours cannot defend that well and offer very little going forward, i cannot remember the last time either got to the byline and put in a dangerous cross. I believe these areas are why we struggle in games and look static and predictable, especially against teams that sit deep as we never stretch the pitch with both young and Valencia constantly coming inside instead of offering the midfield a wide outlet. I appreciate Dalot is a RB but he was clearly bought for the future although i am hoping he gets an early chance and takes it and maybe just maybe Shaw can get back to the player we thought we were buying. I just fear Jose will sulk and moan awaiting the inevitable departure like he did at Chelsea. I would love nothing better than Jose taking on this situation and going for it an all out frontal attack let's get back to making the opposition worry about what we are going to do rather setting up our team to neutralise an opponent. If this is going to be his last season why not go out with a bit of fight
As Dylan Thomas wrote Jose
"Do not go gentle into that good night
Rage, rage against the dying light".


{Ed0333's Note - fantastic read mate, eloquent as f**k. I really enjoyed reading that. You make some salient points and it is not often we get a Dylan Thomas stanza on here. Ed’s 001 thinks he’s a welsh footballer. I think my opinions on your squad and manager are well documented so I’ll keep stum at this time.

1.) 10 Aug 2018 11:12:14
Good post Jamie. time for Jose to earn his crust now
And if you can't do it Jose you must move on.

2.) 10 Aug 2018 11:27:22
We played some of our best football under the negative one with Blind at left back playing pretty much as a third centre back. That doesn't follow suit with the importance of the full backs.

Valencia gets a lot of stick but before his mid season injury and him being seriously overplayed he was one of our better performers.

Maybe I'm nuts and maybe my judgement is clouded but I believe the reason we started to look static, sluggish etc etc was because Jose gave up on our season when he realised he wasn't going to get the silverware he wanted.

3.) 10 Aug 2018 11:52:30
Totally agree with all of that. We have a very good group of players, and significant money has been spent over the last couple of years on Jose's request. He now needs to coach the undoubted talent out of them.

I agree on the full back situation, for me full backs were the most important players we needed to sign this summer. Followed closely by a link player in midfield. We got Fred, and Dalot is very promising by all accounts and with both Valencia and Young able to play RB this season I can understand taking a chance on a super talented young RB.

LB however, needed sorting. If Shaw can come good then we will be golden. Yet the more time that goes by the less likely that he will achieve his potential becomes. Especially when the manager doesn't trust the player to give him a chance. I would have signed a new first choice LB (Jose Gaya or Kieran Tierney) then loaned Shaw out for a season after agreeing a new contract with him. That way he can play regular football for a manager who wants him. Then he can either come back to battle it out for the LB berth or he can leave having hopefully increased his value while on loan.

As for the Cab's we seemed to be chasing all summer, for me it would have to be Alderweireld, Giminez or no one. I don't see the point in spending serious money unless we get a serious upgrade and those two are the best available atm. Varane possibly as well but his injury record has been pretty poor, and I'm not keen on replacing injury prone defenders with other injury prone defenders.

4.) 10 Aug 2018 12:02:23
Now that the dust has settled a little and I am less depressed than late yesterday afternoon, I feel there is every reason to be positive and every reason to be pessimistic. It is make or break - the infamous Jose 3rd season.
I believe that by and large we have more than adequate squad. MU seem to have done three things. 1.told the manager that he has enough talent if he develops youth. 2.Resisted splashing large amounts of cash on great players at their peak (who can only decline in ability and value) . 3.Preserved resources financial and great players we already have for the next manager should JM throw his toys out of the pram.
Hold on to your hats for a roller coaster as we find out how good a manager Jose is. Can he really build, enthuse and man manage a team and individuals and improve / transform what he has. Is he really a great manager or can he only buy success with older players? We are about to find out! I look forward with trepidation and excitement. Forgive any future pessimistic posts. I have only been on one roller coaster before in my life - a very small one when I was very young and I hated it.



19 May 2018 00:23:32
Just a thought, but with Allegri turning down Arsenal and Chelsea does anyone else think he is biding his time to come to OT. He was originally supposed to take over from LVG before Jose came in is it possible the move to make him manager may still happen in the near future.


1.) 19 May 2018 00:57:43
Would he provide the style of play our entire fanbase seems to be craving for though?

2.) 19 May 2018 02:24:23
We have Jose we don't need another manager. Jose has had a massive rebuilding job on his hands

Maybe we should back the manager we have before we become a club known for getting rid of managers when we don't win a title

Its a joke that people want him gone after 2 years of what I personally think we have made massive steps in a positive way especially with the team we currently have.

To many people are use to success under fergie. The reality is fergie era is long gone.

Stop living in the past and support the manager we have.

You can keep Griezmann Thomas was superb tonigh a DM playing RB exactly what we lack very mobile and quick and good on the ball.


{Ed0333's Note - I have no idea why Griezman is so highly sought after? I think he’s mediocre at best. That Thomas is a friggin unit he was a colossus in the first leg also.

1.) 03 May 2018 23:34:33
Griezmann is quality. Where would Atletico be without him?

{Ed0333's Note - who knows mate I’m not mystic meg. I suppose we’ll find out next season

2.) 04 May 2018 08:54:47
didnt see the first leg and I don't watch a lot of European football but the lad Thomas was excellent over 90 minutes. can't say i'd heard of him before.

3.) 04 May 2018 10:06:31
Must admit Greizmann does not look like a 100m player and that is based on his performances. He can however finish and assist but imo doesn't bring as much to the team as others in the same price bracket.

4.) 04 May 2018 11:37:21
Im not saying I think Griezmann is not worth the money but do we need another forward. i'm am sure he would improve our team but we are desperate for CMs and Full backs. I would rather improve greatly in those positions rather than add another big name forward for the sake of it.

5.) 04 May 2018 11:44:24
As I don't see a lot of European football I look forward to the big games but i'm disappointed in Griezman. he's got something for sure but never seen him be brilliant - but i'm juding him on 3 games a season. Costa was a handful again.

Only seen Dyabla 4-5 times and never saw more than a 7/ 10 performance . so I wat do I know about European football.

{Ed004's Note - I think Griezman and Dybala are both top players. It's a shame both play in such defensive sides. If I was to chose one though it would probably be Dybala}

you don't get to spend £400 million on transfers managing the Wales team. Currently this side is worse then the Moyes era and quite a few of our better players wanting away. When Jose finally gets the boot we could be in a right pickle.

Fellaini staying after he taunted himself around Europe and didn’t find any club mug enough to want him. Keeping him indicates that’s it for the midfield only Fred coming in. Fully expect Valencia and young to be starting g first game next season too. Catch city we will be lucky to finish top 4 as it stands, I wouldn’t be surprised if we use all our funds to buy Ronaldo or Bale as the club thinks that means we are still a big club they seem to have forgot winning titles is what put us up on that pedestal in the first place. The keeping of Fellaini also smacks of Jose having no intention of changing our style resigning the big fella so we can launch hoofs up the pitch with15 minutes to go.


{Ed002's Note - Do you have any photographs of Fellaini being "taunted" around Europe.}

Would we be any worse if we asked one of the ball boys to have a go managing the team. 19 POINTS OFF TOP, 11 POINTSOFF 4th WITH A GOAL DIFFERENCE OF 0.
