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.

Utd should be using their affiliation with Van der Saar to buy Van der Beek and De Ligt whatever the cost. Superb players wouldn't cost as much as some players we have been linked with and they display the right attitude on the pitch work hard for everything.


1.) 30 Apr 2019 20:48:52
Whats the point in buying these ajax players who are doing so well to play a style of football that is the complete opposite of what they are doing now?

This ajax team builds up play from the back, presses in a cordinated fashion and has the majority of ball posession.

Under ole we have sat back and relied on counter attacks apart from a brief period when he initially took over.

2.) 30 Apr 2019 20:51:52
I agree but what makes you think either would want to come here?

3.) 30 Apr 2019 20:55:37
That Daley Blind looks decent too.

4.) 30 Apr 2019 20:59:59
The system is so relevant.

I’m not sure how Ole wants us to play yet. His purchases in the summer will tell us.

5.) 30 Apr 2019 21:04:46
Tony I was so gutted to see blind go. Always thought he was underrated. Brilliant footballing brain but lacked speed or strength. How we kept Jones, smalling and Rojo before him I’ll never know. Would have been decent in defensive midfield too. Glad to see him doing so well.

6.) 30 Apr 2019 21:06:50
AJH, we should re-sign Daley, just to admire him.

7.) 30 Apr 2019 21:29:39
Got lovely hair aswell.

8.) 30 Apr 2019 21:44:15
Those cheek bones 👌.

9.) 30 Apr 2019 22:59:04
We have had a few players like blind and still have half a dozen or more that are obviously good players but are not suited to the epl either now or in some cases ever.



20 Mar 2019 19:25:27
Pogba saying it would be a dream to play for Madrid and especially Zidane, I'd cash in on him if Madrid want to buy if they offer £150 million. Maybe buy a midfielder that turns up most games.


1.) 20 Mar 2019 19:54:50
Yep sell our best player, seems like a sound strategy.

2.) 20 Mar 2019 19:58:08
I’d take half of that to get him out of the club. He’s poison. There’s a reason he was moved on once before.

3.) 20 Mar 2019 20:28:10
First of DSG our best player is the one who has won our player of the year nearly every year for the last 5 years. You know DDG the best goalkeeper in the world and who turns up nearly every single week.

On form Pogba is one of the best players on the planet. However, that form comes sporadically at best. Where was he in the first game against PSG? Where was he in the vital game against Arsenal in the race for the top four?

Yeah sure, he does it against the Huddersfield's and the Bournemouth's. But does he do it when we really need it?

Then there is his behaviour during the first half of the season. i am no fan of Jose Mourinho, and I can understand Pogba's and the rest of the squads frustration. But you don't act like that if you have any respect for the club.

Sir Alex let Pogba go once before, and that might have been for a good reason. After all the one thing Sir Alex was excellent at was his judge of character.

If he wants to stay and fight for the club, learn and improve himself then great, I'm all for it. However, if he thinks he has nothing to improve on, and if he isn't prepared to fight when we need him to, and if he is going to bat his eyelashes towards Spain every summer then he is best off leaving sooner rather than later.

I wouldn't want Ole or whoever is our manager next season to start to build a side around him only for him to leave the following summer when the opportunity arises.

4.) 20 Mar 2019 20:29:04
Our best player is de gea.

5.) 20 Mar 2019 21:08:32
Ddg no1.

6.) 20 Mar 2019 21:43:23
Well i think pogba is our best player, but de gea is obviously worth a shout.

On the topic of de gea, its not like he's not fluttered his eye lashes at madrid pretty much every summer and still won't commit to a club that is willing to make him the highest paid goalkeeper in the world by a considerable distance. Hardly the benchmark for loyalty.

Also he also has clear areas to improve, like commanding his area, catching the ball instead of those weak punches (we all saw that one against psg in the last minute), playing out from the back with his feet and coming out of his area to sweep when we play a high line. Everything a modern gk has to do in todays game.

Also this idea that pogba only turns up against small teams is farcical. Who scored and set up the goal against chelsea this season, the killer pass against spurs, the comeback against city last season and the europa league final. Hardly a flat track bully.

If he wants to leave then fair enough he will leave but i sure wouldn't trust ed woodward to bring in a half decent replacement with the money pogba brings us.

Maybe just maybe we bring in players of pogbas level to improve the team instead of a past it chilean who is the highest paid player at the club yet is doing an awful impression of bebe or obertan.

7.) 20 Mar 2019 23:42:42
If a player’s heart or for that matter anybody including the manager is not with the club then he should leave. It’s not fair to himself nor the club. Same as if you are not happy working for the company then you should leave else there won’t be any productivity.
I’m not advocating Pogba to leave but there is no fire without a spark in what he said. Besides he has a good relationship with ZZ and they’re both French.
So if I were OGS I’d speak to Pogba openly and let him go if he wants to. Ensure commitment for next season. I’m sure there are good alternatives to Pogba. It’s a matter of who is right for the team and not any individual players. Of course it would help if individual players a good.
As I have been saying let OGS do his work and we can decide end of season. No hurry to confirm him. If the board wants to do benit else just see where we end up. No point pressuring him and convoluting the situation. But of course OGS can start to work on transfer list as per like he will be confirmed as next season manager. No harm on that.

8.) 21 Mar 2019 05:15:28
Hard to disagree with DSG.
Pogba is our best creative outlet. Nobody in our team can pick out passes like him.
None in our midfield has the ability to skip past players and threaten inside the box like he does.
He does have lapses in concentration, but we wouldn't have had the recent winning run without him.

Herrera, Matic, Fred, Mctominay, Andreas make too many square or easy passes.
Although they do decent job off the ball, none of them have the game changing ability like Pogaba.

9.) 21 Mar 2019 05:38:38
TRD I’d agree with you and DSG that Pogba is our best and most creative midfielder. Without a doubt.
But he has to learn about what to say and what not to say.
You don’t find KDB coming out to say a lot about RM or Barcelona etc? Or for that matter Mbappe? Or de Silva?
There has to be respect for the club and discipline. Of course we don’t know in what context Pogba was commenting and the toxic spin the media is spinning for clicks from readership.
But I just feel that the players these days have to be careful and behave else the free press will totally spin the story especially Man Utd is such a hated club that a lot wants to see messy and buried. Why not? Big club big story. Anyway best is leave it to the board to handle and just enjoy life 🤣🤣. I’m just happy I can live long enough to still support my club 🤙✊.

10.) 21 Mar 2019 09:19:17
Maybe you don't see kdb doing it because he is surrounded by quality players and feels like the team are going places.

Who does pogba see in the dressing room that is on his level, de gea? But even he is stalling on a new contract and would like to move elsewhere. Majority of the squad is full of mediocre players like young, smalling, jones, rojo, darmian, sanchez, fred etc.

I am not surprised he wants to leave and compete for the biggest trophies, he has been here for 5 windows now and we haven't bought anyone remotely on his level.

11.) 21 Mar 2019 10:30:30
Exactly, KDB has top class Silva's to play alongside him. They are nailed on to win trophies with the quality investments which they have made.

On the other hand, United have very few quality players.
Although we have some promising youngsters, they are largely inconsistent.
In order to address this issue, we must buy smartly right from this summer.
The youngsters need quality players to look upto and guide them.
Appointing a fitting DoF will be the first huge step in the right direction.

12.) 21 Mar 2019 11:45:21
"utd have very few quality players" and "he has been here for 5 windows now and we haven't bought anyone remotely on his level. " are powerful statements to make!
However, add the fact that pogba only turns on a performance 1 in 3/ 4 games and it blows his overinflated ego and the statements out of the water. Its widely agreed his talent on the day but his attitude although improved from JM days is a bit better his statements and antics do him no favours. As was said earlier if he wants out the club should do everything humanly possible to facilitate and gt someone in who wants to be there.

13.) 21 Mar 2019 17:58:40
Completely agree Shappy, great points.

14.) 22 Mar 2019 13:47:50
Man city players are not distracted by a make shift defence and as soon as they get back on the ball it's sent forward with ease and confidence

Man Utd players have to constantly track back because we fail do do the simple things in defence! When we try to get the ball moving forward? We pass it to the opposition over and over 9 times out of 10 till our forward players drop deep and make an attempt at goal.

When we finally sign players to replace the overrated players who can't pass the ball! We might finally click and score goals.



10 Feb 2019 17:15:32
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!

2.) 10 Feb 2019 19:32:59
sorry meant chelsea.

3.) 10 Feb 2019 20:49:08
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.

Tired of this good guy around the dressing room, given the state of our team i would suggest he barely has an impact at all. We cannot afford to carry nice guys for the sake of it. This squad is terrible we need players that can perform on the pitch as well as impact the dressing room. Mata is neither of those.

Dortmund have a history selling their best players to their biggest rivals Munich. The are a selling club always will be.
