Just read this sums it up for me

Where was the game plan, the identity, the intensity? Echoing Paul Pogba's words, the man who was unceremoniously relieved of his duties as stand-in skipper, the Stretford End chanted 'attack! attack! attack!


1.) 26 Sep 2018 10:47:54
Come on Jred don't try to think rationally.

Just blame Pogba.

After all, it's Pogba's fault Frank Lampard who has been in management since June and his team plays better ball than Jose.

It's also due to Pogba's haircut, social media antics, lack of commitment and respect to the club that made Mourinho who so much loves and respects the club say Man United have no football heritage after we lost to Sevilla.

Also, regardless that Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham were below us last season and the fact that they lost more games than us but were never outplayed by Wolves, Huddersfield, Derby and the likes at home within the matter of a few days, Mourinho had nothing to do with it. It was all Pogba's fault.

Even the fact that we cannot count 15 games we utterly dominated throughout without looking vulnerable or likely to lose the said games at a point in the last 3 years cannot be Mourinho's fault - it's all Pogba's.

That's probably why Juventus kicked him out because he's a no-good, pre-madonna who only cares about his looks, social media and running his mouth to the press.

2.) 26 Sep 2018 12:31:23
The Stretford usually chants attack attack attack and they did so last night but tbh not until in the 94th minute.

3.) 26 Sep 2018 12:36:04
Very much his scapgoat last year, herrera must be pleased it isn't him this season.

4.) 26 Sep 2018 12:49:10
pre-madonna haha love it.

5.) 26 Sep 2018 19:12:05
Keep hearing about pre-Madonna's. Do we have any post-Madonna players?

6.) 27 Sep 2018 15:25:46
What we need are current-madonnas.



27 Aug 2018 16:52:08
A lot of talk matic will play in a back 3 tonight.


1.) 27 Aug 2018 17:41:22
That's pretty much how he was utilised a lot last season anyway.

2.) 28 Aug 2018 19:41:51
And as it panned out it looked like we played nobody at the back.



01 Aug 2018 19:42:47
Ed some reports that kovacic as turned down a move to United as he  feels our playing style woukd be a bad fit with his own skills.
Any truth in it.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of that. There are sides interested in him.}

1.) 01 Aug 2018 19:54:03
Cheers ed.



24 Jul 2018 18:34:50
So malcom has gone to Barcelona leaves William a bit in limbo .
Now which club would spend 70 mil on a 29 year old winger.


{Ed025's Note - someone dsperate..

1.) 24 Jul 2018 21:39:02
Should've gone for Malcolm. Not a bad price. Young with sell on value.

2.) 24 Jul 2018 21:46:27
Haven't seen much off him.

3.) 25 Jul 2018 00:27:56
I think William would be an excellent acquisition. He is pacy direct and makes and scores goals. Exactly what we need. Yes the fee would probably be stupidly high but then again right now common sense with regard to transfer fees had all but vanished in Engkand.

4.) 25 Jul 2018 09:12:49
Desperate times indeed I mean we should of matched the bargain price of 50m for richarlson what persons we are :)

5.) 25 Jul 2018 09:15:44
Willian would be great but if were to spend 70 million on a wide player it's should be going on bale.

6.) 25 Jul 2018 10:31:34
70 mil and prob a 5 year contract for a winger coming up to 30 who relies entirely on pace and fitness .
Him 1 side Sanchez the other .
But job for the next manager.

7.) 25 Jul 2018 12:44:07
William or Malcolm jred?

8.) 25 Jul 2018 12:50:06
Mort like I said above haven't seen enough of malcolm.
70 mill for a player aproching 30 who relies on pace and fitness tho?

9.) 25 Jul 2018 16:35:55
Personally i'd go nowhere near Willian at those figures. i'd rather gamble on an unknown who we could recoup most of the outlay if it doesn't work.

10.) 25 Jul 2018 17:24:54
I thought the numbers last year talked about Willian £40m or so if I remember right, were ridiculous. He looked good in the World Cup (so did many players that don't play that way for their clubs), but I can't believe Chelsea were rejecting offers of £55m+ for him.

We should stay away, but wouldn't be surprised if we sign him - Rather Willian than Perisic though.

11.) 25 Jul 2018 17:45:01
Surely if the manager wants him we should just support that.

12.) 25 Jul 2018 18:04:40
Ken - not if we don't have confidence in the manager or serious doubts the manager will be here after Christmas.

13.) 25 Jul 2018 18:21:13
No way the board will pay 70m for willian. If that was the case we would be better off swapping martial. They could buy better than him for 70m. So far we have paid about 41m for martial.

14.) 25 Jul 2018 21:17:27
Id rather have perisic over Willian.



23 Jul 2018 19:09:13
Ed are United showing any Interest in Koulibaly.


{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}

Why do we not start attacking until we are behind.


1.) 03 Nov 2018 14:57:04
Massive 3 points, much better second half and a last minute winner always feels so good!

Jred I don't even think Jose knows the answer to your question pal?

2.) 03 Nov 2018 14:58:04
It’s infuriating mate. Great response second half. Deserved to edge it in the end. Very important win. Some day we are going to get smashed in the first half if we carry on like this. But great win and more momentum.

3.) 03 Nov 2018 17:29:31
Good second half showing and a good win all round. Seems we can only play for 45 minutes but at least it’s a start.



20 Oct 2018 15:01:00
Shaw and martial excellent today.


1.) 20 Oct 2018 15:40:15
They were pal. Ones signed on hopefully the other follows.

2.) 20 Oct 2018 15:59:57
Mata was good aswell. Would people droo Lukaku and play sanchez.
Attimes Lukaku is like a donkey. Slow to turn, but on the other hand at least he has scored wel for us.

3.) 20 Oct 2018 16:32:21
I think the way we were pressing from the front today suits an interchangeable front 3 of martial, Sanchez rashford. With mata and pogba linking and playing balls through to that fluid front three could be extremely effective. Lukaku just looks woefully out of form, but worse he looks disinterested. Sanchez deserves an opportunity at cf. we showed today that we can be a very good side. But the energy levels and work rate must be higher.

4.) 20 Oct 2018 17:06:32
I though pogba had a good game second half as well, not great defensively but brave enough to get on the ball .

Martial is like Shaw just needs games imo gets a lot of stick on here but he really is a talented lad .
Was playing his best football when we bought Sanchez and dropped him .

5.) 20 Oct 2018 17:16:07
The martial goals were so like his first season. Deadly. He placed the ball in exactly the corners. He was very very clinical.

6.) 20 Oct 2018 17:16:26
Very good game from Martial, Shaw and Mata today.

I hope these guys carry on from here and let these players play together for a few games.

Lukaku does look out of touch but i would still play with him for now as he is close to scoring a goal very soon.

Really shame about the assitant incident with Mourinho and it will most likely make Mouinho look bad in the press even though it was the Sarris assistant's fault.

7.) 20 Oct 2018 17:27:31
Mad Hatter- I would play rashford through the middle dropping RL and try sanchez on the right. If sanchez doesn't work out mata or linguard but RL is playing like emile heskey . loss of confidence but only in a utd shirt?

{Ed025's Note - maybe he has juve on his mind cooky?...if he goes les dennis would say...i will give you the money myself..

8.) 20 Oct 2018 17:44:17
Agreed jred. I'm so happy to see them playing to their potential.

The interreaction between jose and marital when being subbed was nice to see too.

9.) 20 Oct 2018 17:45:11
And you would play Rashford? A bigger donkey. That guy is a waste of footballing space.

10.) 20 Oct 2018 17:51:51
How'd you do in your professional footballing career united addict?

Score many goals against Spain?

11.) 20 Oct 2018 18:04:43
I dunno about anyone else but I came away from today gutted that we drew and I would have ripped your arm off for that before the game.

2nd half we were brave and played very well I personally think Chelsea have been the best team in the league this season with the best player and we went toe to toe and should have won.

12.) 20 Oct 2018 18:21:25
Agreed deano.

Gutted in the moment but happy overall. The players need to build up their confidence. After today Jose will be ram it home that we are more than capable.

13.) 20 Oct 2018 18:25:57
Park - I agree although I thought Lukaku looked better in the second half! I'm not convinced about Rashford on the right either.

I think Martial and Rashford should continue to push each other on the left. I'd give Sanchez a chance up front as I don't think Lukaku is offering us that much at the moment. I think Mata deserves a chance at 10. Can't help thinking we might have wasted a very good player in that position over the years. We've got Lingard that can play at 10 as well. I think we're weak on the right and can't see an obvious solution maybe Pereira or even Chong!

Jred - I agree about Pogba mate. He's brave and courageous on the ball I think we just have to accept that he can fall asleep defensively at times and hope he influences the game enough to cover for his lapses in concentration.

I don't think anyone was expecting us to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation today. I think it was so Mata could stop Jorginho influencing the game and playing a third deeper midfielder would have give him too much time and space.

Moving forward maybe we should revert to that formation. Thinking back to the start of last season it was a Matic-Pogba axis in midfield with Martial and Rashford pushing each other from the left which had us playing the best football under Jose. The wheels fell off when Pogba got injured and we had a few bad results including City beating us at home. Some consistency in team selection and formation might just help us build some momentum on the back of two very good second half performances. It's going to take a monumental effort just to get into the top 4 and clinging on today would have been a great start. I guess all we can do now is hope for a run of good results and ask some questions of the teams above us!

14.) 20 Oct 2018 18:53:25
Yeah Angelred, that one game covers up for more than 3 years of hopelessness. grow up and speak facts not emotions. no matter what you will say, Rashford isn't and will not be a Manchester United level player for me.

15.) 20 Oct 2018 19:22:30
We look a better team in 4231 always think we look flat 433.
Sanchez? Really he has been awful since we signed him.

16.) 20 Oct 2018 20:10:32
Jred - I agree re 4-2-3-1 and in relation to Sanchez I think he might just give us more mobility and guile up front! Yes he's been very disappointing so far but he looked so sharp playing up front in pre season and perhaps more importantly forged an almost telephonic understanding with Mata. In fact the only good thing about pre season was those two!

If we play 4-2-3-1 and give Mata a chance at 10 we might just stumble onto something really good. Lukaku's had a dip in form, he's not giving us much at the moment so why not give it a try?! If Sanchez is poor bring him off and it might just jolt Lukaku back into action.

17.) 20 Oct 2018 21:00:26
Lukaku has been excellent for Belgium.
And has scored more goals for United this season than Sanchez has since he signed .
Lukaku has had a poor couple of games, Sanchez a poor 8 month .

Don't get the love in with big names, Sanchez has been massively detrimental to martial and Rasford . Martial in particular.

18.) 20 Oct 2018 21:05:45
He's been there a few seasons now united addict and scored a good few goals so he's doing alright for 'not a united level player' 😂.

19.) 20 Oct 2018 23:27:59
United addict seems to have another addiction. Needs to phone Frank.



13 Oct 2018 04:24:49
Lukaku has 23 goals in his 21 games for Belgium. Put him in an attacking team the boy will score goals .


1.) 13 Oct 2018 06:06:59
Spot on mate, he’s been banging them in against Estonia, Cyprus, Saudi Arabia and Japan.

Hell he even got a hatrick against Gibraltar! 😉.

{Ed001's Note - he could probably get 5 against that Arsenal defence then....}

2.) 13 Oct 2018 07:13:55
At least mate, they are truly dodgy! I’m not looking forward to playing you either. 😂😂.

{Ed001's Note - the way your lot are playing every game could finish with any kind of score at all. It does show how meaningless every other stat is though, as you are doing a Burnley and making a mockery of them.}

3.) 13 Oct 2018 11:05:58
Lukaku is a consistent 20 plus a season EPL striker. One of only a few in the league at present. However, he is struggling with his role in our side this season. Too often he is isolated up front for most of the game treated like a glorified target for long balls.

4.) 13 Oct 2018 11:13:00
I know mate, I do have a chuckle when some get so carried away with it.

We definitely don’t look like a top four side in my opinion.

5.) 13 Oct 2018 12:13:39
The type of striker that needs service, service, service all day and he will get you goals (whilst missing a good few chances in the process) .
Quality crosses and through balls all day is not what he will get in this team. Is required to do a lot himself and he just doesn't have that ability, to make things happen himself.

7.) 15 Oct 2018 02:22:31
The problem with him being a consistent 20 plus a season PL striker is he's only ever got more than 20 league goals once.



25 Sep 2018 23:24:03
Does lampard deserve credit for how derby played but it the owners fans everyone but Jose fault for how u tied played?


1.) 26 Sep 2018 10:19:51
Frank showed that he has been studying. I don't think Jose has studied for 20 years. It's what happens when ego-maniacs reach the top, they stop trying to improve and blame everyone but themselves. The few people that have the ego and still aspire to improve are the ones that are remembered for all time for their entire career performance, with a few exceptions.

2.) 26 Sep 2018 11:44:44
Of course Jose has studied he's very tactically adept. The issue is now that the fans want attacking football which does not suit Jose. The fans cried for Jose to come in and now look its exactly what the football world knew all along an absolute mess.



25 Sep 2018 21:28:57
Is Jose doing a good job?


1.) 25 Sep 2018 21:56:37
It's Pogba's fault Jred.

2.) 25 Sep 2018 22:17:02
Pogba had a shocker, it was like he wasn't even there tonight.

{Ed025's Note - love it shappy..

3.) 25 Sep 2018 22:38:14
He was in the stands.

4.) 25 Sep 2018 22:58:52
Hahahaha, nice one Shappy.

5.) 25 Sep 2018 23:11:49
In the stands in his white tracksuit in like rashers and perierra who were in United tracksuit #biggerthantheclub.

We have spent an obscene amount of money the pathetic excuses for Jose are ridiculous coming from deluded fans .
In his 3rd year at the club after having one of the biggest transfer spend in Europe Jose is taking this team backwards .
Never mind city or Liverpool forget about them we are no better Bournemouth or Watford. In fact we play worse football .
We don't know how to defend as a team
Our tactics are regressive and out of date .
Our players are out of form many wanting to leave .
Our style is awful
We don't know out best team
It's a bit of a shambles any other top club would get rid of there manager in this situation .

Are you joking.
Jose has spent a vast sum of cash one of the biggest spends in world football . He has been backed.
Pep has taken city to a different level most points ever in the history of the EPL, arguably the best epl team ever .

Jose has taken us to the same points as Bournemouth and Watford .
Forget city we are no better than arsenal, spurs etc.

2 players won't make this a good team

Why do you think 2 new players will come in and play well when all the others haven't?

Wishful thinking and nothing more, actually take the red blinkered glasses of and take a step back.

Jose isn't going to turn this around just like he couldn't at Chelsea.
It's a case of when not if he is sacked and once he is we can seriously start to build for the future .

Not every manager appointed is a success that's football happens at every club . Hopefully our next manager is the right man for the job.
