Juventus ceo has said he expects Sandro to extend his contract, meeting planned for next week.

jred

1.) 24 May 2018 14:30:51
I think Sandro will decide, if agrees to extend, stays, if asks to leave he will.

He also saying Mandzukic hasn't asked to leave, if he does would be allowed.


2.) 24 May 2018 19:30:57
Ed02 did mention that Sandro was on-off-on with Juventus so it may or may not happen. Guess we will have to wait and see what happens with this one.


3.) 25 May 2018 14:44:18
Asamoah juve left back has left so maybe it will be Sandro and darmian for juve next year?


4.) 25 May 2018 15:59:08
jred juventus want sandro to extend contract there is no indication he wants to do the same, iirc he wanted to leave last summer wasn't allowed to and he hasn't exactly been great last season, also juve ceo kept telling everybody pogba was not going to leave until he left, won't read much into what he says.

Looks like lukaku is out.

jred

1.) 19 May 2018 15:20:50
Huge blow👎🏻👎🏻.


2.) 19 May 2018 15:23:25
Out? On the bench per rumours.


 

 

11 Apr 2018 18:12:20
Ed any truth United are looking at mawson.

jred

{Ed002's Note - I don’t know but would think he would be well down the list of CBs the club is known to be looking at, but he has an advantage of being English. There is interest from elsewhere in the PL.}


1.) 11 Apr 2018 20:46:47
Along with our other English centre backs jones and smalling?
Im never sure with some cb's sometimes they can look good because they are so busy at the likes of swansea and because he is their best defender. Over the past couple of seasons he has stood out for them so i can see why any epl side wiuld be looking at him but could he make such a big leap. Many have before him. To be honest i think its the sort of transfer that every fan likes to see succeed.


2.) 11 Apr 2018 21:52:37
Mawson is a far better player than Maguire. Although neither are good enough for us.


3.) 11 Apr 2018 22:10:52
I don't rate maguire at all shappy. It would be a huge step up for mawson but i think he is the Better of those two.


4.) 12 Apr 2018 17:34:44
Agree shappy and ken maguire’s positioning is atrocious and I’m not sure why he gets so many plaudits. Perhaps because he carries the ball out of defence but that’s where the problems lie for me. He often loses it.

Not a fan of Mawson if I’m honest. He’s decent but not good enough for us. I find it misleading buying cbs from teams that sit back as it’s easy to camp 11 men behind the ball and be structured and disciplined. The test is when you move to one of the big boys and you have to play 10 yards further forward without 2 defensive midfielders protecting you. That’s why players like Lovren have struggled. Also, we have the likes of tuanzebe coming through who has the potential to be a very good player so wouldn’t be going anywhere near the likes of Mawson or Maguire.

If we do need a cb we need a top quality one whose better than we have got to partner bailly. It would have to be of the ilk of Umtiti, Alderweireld or varane. But tbh I would like to see lindelof to have a run in the team as I think he has the attributes to be a good cb. Otherwise my choice to partner bailly would be Rojo but he is not very good at playing out of the back. Cb is the least of our worries for me.


5.) 14 Apr 2018 14:14:16
It may just be me but I quite like Maguire . The way he breaks from the back and breaks play up. "Like a young Steve Bruce"😆😆.

{Ed001's Note - without the defensive ability or reading of the game of Bruce. In fact the only similarity between the two I can think of is that they both have a face only a mother can love....}


6.) 15 Apr 2018 10:19:44
If Alderweireld is available he’d be the signing for me! Top quality.

Good mate if my incidentally is Spurs fan and they have all well and truly turned on Danny Rose down there.


 

 

23 Mar 2018 08:20:05
Ed is there any truth in the rumour that Sanchez isn't happy with life at United and some at the club aren't happy with his attitude.

jred

{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of. He is unhappy with his form.}


1.) 23 Mar 2018 12:47:04
Some people are getting desperate aren't they. That's not aimed at Jred but whoever started that rumour.


2.) 23 Mar 2018 13:10:21
Now media is trying to just find the smallest of things and making it sensational. If we believe them half of the squad is unhappy with the coach and each other. Just read yesterday that Mourinho was unhappy with Pogba because he congratulated Mou mid interview after the Liverpool victory.


3.) 23 Mar 2018 13:44:08
the most ludicrous one I've seen is sanchez has no friends and sits by himself at meal times. Just media stirring the pot and spouting rubbish. I believe sanchez is fine just unhappy with his performances and rightly so. He is immensely talented and sets high standards for himself. I would rather he was like this than lacking drive.


4.) 24 Mar 2018 16:41:40
Park, is it ludicrous? Apparently / allegedly he was loner at Arsenal too. He may be a great player but I’m not sure how social he is.

{Ed001's Note - he has never been particularly sociable which caused him problems as Barca with Messi. Some people just do not want to go out on nights out with the lads, they are homebodies.}


 

 

22 Mar 2018 13:05:50
Looks like ibra is off to America.

jred

1.) 22 Mar 2018 14:50:15
Good, should never have signed him in the first place, never mind re-signing him after his injury.


2.) 22 Mar 2018 18:51:01
Thats a lot of wages off the book. he shouldve gone in the summer.


3.) 22 Mar 2018 19:21:22
Tattoo. Without Ibra, s contribution last season, We would have won naff all. Pleasure to see him play at OT . Wish we could have got him 5 years earlier.
Good luck to him I say.


4.) 22 Mar 2018 21:54:38
Anyone else think the timings convenient? Hasn’t won the Champions League in his career and a week after we go out he’s off. Maybe just coincidence but who knows. Was a pleasure watching him last season. Fair enough this season was a disaster for him but for some it may have clouded over their memory from the season before. L To get 28 goals and not even finish out the season at 35 is testimont to him. Wish him the best of luck in the future.


5.) 22 Mar 2018 22:45:58
Ibra was only a success last season because he was made the focal point of the team at others expense, he slowed everything down and has hindered the teams progress into this season. I thank him for his contribution but we will be better off without him. I also don't buy in to the Jose / Ibra love in, where is it now?


6.) 23 Mar 2018 13:47:24
I tend to agree tattoo we are a far better player without him. i think it was sentimental reasons for giving zlatan a new contract and to help him get fit. In hindsight perhaps very naive but i actually commend the club for it. Shows some class that they stood by him and helped him rehabilitate. He will have been very grateful i suspect. right time to go and frees up a lot of wages in the squad to bring in another top player.

Rumour seems to be Alderweireld in bailly out
Wouldn't be that much of a surprise bailly is struggling to get a game at the moment and seems to be 3rd or 4th choice .
Shame as he looks a good young player.

jred

1.) 22 May 2018 07:28:42
Rumour is he was dropped as he reported ill for the WBA game but then was fine for training the next day.

Another example of JM’s management style making us suffer for his own personal gain. Shocking as Bailey is our best CB and should have been playing.


2.) 22 May 2018 08:36:22
Plus being well enough to train and being well enough to play are different things. If bailly had the squits you can't stop running mid game to clench the cheeks.
No one would want to see the brown shorts of shame although it would of taken the focus off the dour wba game.


3.) 22 May 2018 08:55:45
Rumour is just that rumour. I dint think he'll be going.


4.) 22 May 2018 10:30:34
Another of his own signing mourinho can't manage, i am sure jose supporters would like us to spend 1 bn each season to replace all the players the grumpy one falls out with each season but it is time we look at this practically and that only 1 man seems to be the problem here.


5.) 22 May 2018 10:38:45
I don't understand how any one can even think of Bailey leaving. He has been our only good defender (whenever he plays) for the last couple of seasons. It's been a very long time since I've seen such a good defender in our team. And to think that smelling and Jones deserve to remain here is just atrocious. If the above scenario actually happens then even though I'm a Mourinho fan, I think he would have lost his mind.


6.) 22 May 2018 10:59:07
Its more media bs. The other say it was lindelof leaving. Before that lukaku. Before that pogba. Bear in mind united sells papers, clicks. If they say enough names eventually they'll get one right.


7.) 22 May 2018 12:24:56
Thank you Dr Shnauzer for the medical perspective.


8.) 22 May 2018 12:36:21
To be fair bailly is struggling for a game and lindelof is struggling to get on the bench .
Would it not be more of a surprise if we sold someone like smalling who starts every game .
If you are a manger would you rather sell your 1st choice cb or 4th.


9.) 22 May 2018 13:24:41
Bailly is going nowhere. He is our best defender.


10.) 22 May 2018 14:48:06
Smalling and Jones are only herr because they are english. If yhey weren't english they wouldve been kicked out of the club long time ago.

Bailly is going no where this year unless we get both Umtiti and alderwereld which will be highly unlikely.


 

 

20 May 2018 10:47:37
Has Rasford progressed as a player over the season?

jred

1.) 20 May 2018 10:54:27
I think he's gone backwards as a player. maybe due to tactics or something else but defiantly not improved at all. there could be something else behind the scenes we will never no.


2.) 20 May 2018 10:59:38
Got to be honest he hasnt.


3.) 20 May 2018 11:15:11
gone backwards for sure. he is talented but i don't think he is as good as people think he is. i don't think he is a natural finisher and his decision making is poor. hopefully he can develop these but i think martial is far more talented than him. I like rashford and on form he can be very effective and direct. but i think that needs to be on the left rather than centrally. tactics are not helping him but maybe he is just going through a a slump that young players go through. a loan would do him the world of good.


4.) 20 May 2018 11:23:23
Rashford has had a poor season. His free kicks, corners, link up play, and awareness have generally been poor. There has been the constant feeling that our midfield and forwards are all playing as individuals rather than as a team, and nowhere has that been more apparent than in Rashford's game.

It not unusual for a young player to have a down year after a good one. The question is whether it's a normal blip or something more fundamental. Is it a result of bad tactics, a failure to adapt to the tactics, a lack of team mentality in the dressing room and on the field, or does he just not have what it takes?


5.) 20 May 2018 11:30:18
Park3 do u think martial has improved over the season.


6.) 20 May 2018 11:39:28
Raahford lacks composure infront of goal and is greedy at times but he is young and may or may not improve.

I think if Martial was given as much game time as him he wouldve done a whole lot better.


7.) 20 May 2018 12:33:40
No he hasn't improved but whos fault is that?

Do we place all the blame on jose mourinho or can rashford take a little but of personal responsibility for his development?


8.) 20 May 2018 12:40:38
I may be in the minority here but i honestly don't see what everyone sees in Rashford. All he does is run around and you don't need talent for it. I don't remember who it was but one of the posters called him similar to welbeck which at the time i thought was unfair to Rashford but now i think it is really unfair to Welbeck. If he wasnt English he wouldn't be anywhere near the team. Rashford seems more David Bellion than Ronaldo.


9.) 20 May 2018 12:41:29
Jred I think martial has improved. Up until Xmas he was our player of the season for me. Sanchez signing has displaced him. But I did expect martial to take the challenge of Sanchez head on and expected him to step up his game. Disappointed he has come across a bit sulky and not really fought for his place. But I don’t think he has had as many opportunities. If it was between keeping rashford and martial it would be martial for me. Want neither to leave and love having a local lad play for united. But martial is more talented and has a higher ceiling for me. What do you think jred?


10.) 20 May 2018 13:01:24
Park
I think both need a run of games .
Martial is the better player imo and was playing well and scoring just before we bought Sanchez.
Looks like he is being forced out to me .
But 2 much chopping and changing for me.


11.) 20 May 2018 13:16:31
I think Rashford has the talent and a willing attitude. He has had a difficult season, for sure. I would put it down to the following:
1 - Jose does not have the patience waiting for a Rashford or Martial to deliver, thus his reason to buy Sanchez.
2 - Sanchez has not only taken minutes from Rashford and Martial, he has been really poor. He has not scored, and the play going forward is worse with him, since he holds onto the ball too much.
3 - If Lukaku will always be first choice at center forward, then Rashford or Martial have to operate from the wings, and both seem to be better on the left.
4 - When Rashford does get minutes, he probably feels more pressure to deliver.
All of this worked against him, but I still hope he can come through and deliver. But under Mourinho, I have my doubts.


12.) 20 May 2018 13:20:03
Not a Mourinho type of player. Hindering his process. Needs a more attack minded coach to get more out of him.


13.) 20 May 2018 13:30:16
Yeh can’t argue with that jred. Agree zidaniel I was all for the Sanchez signing but it’s getting ridiculous now the double standards with some players. Smalling, Young jones and Sanchez can play poorly and keep their spot. Martial, rashford shaw lindelof bailly are not seen for weeks. All of the latter would improve us and we would be a much better side. These decisions are baffling. My confidence was knocked in Jose yesterday. I can take losing but that team selection was laughable, especially the defence. I will give Jose another year but he is only thin ice if he continues playing those players simply not good enough for united.


14.) 20 May 2018 14:27:41
Every time he is about to receive the ball, dribble the ball or pass the ball - I think "this is going to result in lost possession", just occasionally he does something great, which probably amazes him more than it does me.

He looks like a lost sheep, with a wolf showing him directions!


15.) 20 May 2018 14:35:18
The question we should ask is were martial and Rashford improving up until Sanchez signed? Since then they have gone backwards for sure.


16.) 20 May 2018 18:52:29
I love Rash but he has been poor lately, but no poorer than Sanchez who has been awful. We had 2 young exciting talents who were taking no turns and dong ok, we sign Sanchez and since then they have struggled. Hmmm.


 

 

19 May 2018 22:02:39
In our last 4 games we have conceded the huge amount of 2 goals .
But that's ok because in our last 4 games we have also managed to score 2 goals .

2 goals scored in our last 4 games .

jred

1.) 19 May 2018 22:17:14
It’s worse I think we only got one goal in our last 4.


2.) 19 May 2018 22:25:47
I hope we don't have to spend another quarter of a billion to fight for 2nd in PL and 2nd phase of UCL.


3.) 19 May 2018 22:29:54
And we conceded 5 in 5 prior to that, I know your a fan of Smalling and that’s fair enough and I know Jose has played him regular but imo he isn’t good enough for United, it’s a facade that we are great defensively, DDG has produced so many saves in games to keep clean sheets to the point he’s 5th behind Butland, Fabianksi, Ryan and Pickford for most shots saved, what does that tell you.
Smalling wasn’t bad today and my issue isn’t just Smalling but the mediocre back 4 and others we have that we are convincing ourselves are good enough to be on top in England and Europe, Just my option and I respect yours on the matter, I’m sure we both just want the same for united but for me Bailly is the best defender at the club and we are crying out for full backs and a centre back, wether Jose agrees we will see, I don’t like all this spending as much as the next fan but only so long I can wait for the current ones to reach that top level.


4.) 19 May 2018 23:00:09
Wrd
It's not a case of me rating smalling it the stupid post blaming everything on him ( that have been all season) .
He had a decent game today again but same people posting the same rubbish .
I like bailly but since he come back from injury he has struggled looked very rash and been all over the place.
No surprise he been dropped.

Our creativity, play in the last third, transition in cm, tempo have all been poor . Can't keep blaming the back 4 team only conceded 28 goals in 38 league games .
Didn't lose today because of smalling no matter how many times you post it .
Didn't get knocked out against Sevilla either 2 goals against over 180 minutes because of smalling. Mistakes from matic and the can do no wrong bailly .
Number of goals scored against them in 180 minutes 0.
Shots on target over 180 minutes. 4?


5.) 19 May 2018 23:03:34
Long time red
Yes my mistake 1 goal scored in our last 4 matches with the attacking talent we have .
How do other teams do it?


6.) 20 May 2018 08:01:43
I agree our attacking output is poor, seems to be a lack of cohesion up top, no tempo or energy and it’s baffling with the amount of talent we have on paper, something just isn’t clicking in this team.


 

 

15 May 2018 17:45:12
Just some food for thought, over the years I have had some discussion/ arguments with shappy over various things, one was Jose.

I wanted Jose at the club I though he was what we needed a big enough personality to manager a club like United. A serial winner .

Shappy never, he said the style of football would be poor, I argued he was over reacting it wouldn't be that bad .
He argued the young players would be hung out to dry, he said martial would be gone in 2 year? I was adamant the cream rises martial and rash would kick on under Jose.

In short he argued Jose wasn't the right fit and he might well be right .

2nd in the league is about par for the course imo with the squad wage bill and money spent .
The football has been a lot worse than I was expecting tho but on the whole we look like a Jose team doing what Jose team do .
It looks worse because pep and city are outstanding, there is far more to the improvement in city than he "bough some full backs ". that's a ridiculous view imo .

I like Jose, wanted him at the club he is a great manager but I'm not sure he is the right manager for man United.

He will and rightly so be here for another 12 month but I would be surprised if he is still at the club after that.

jred

1.) 15 May 2018 18:24:38
This debate is more boring than the football.


2.) 15 May 2018 18:55:07
A lot to agree with there jred.
The cream is rising to the top jose doest suffer weak hearted and weak minded players. Shaw blind darmian fellaini hardly started a dozen league games between them.
Martial may or may not leave but the choice will be his. He may decide to stay and fight for his place or he may think I have no chance here because the manager doesn't fancy me and i don't believe in the manager. If leaving is his choice then all the club can do is maximise his value. So far we have paid Monaco €39.5m and he is close to triggering 2 further €10m payments for scoring 50 club goals (still a bit away even after 3 seasons) and if he is named in the top 50 in the balon dor list no sign of that yet but it could happen I suppose.
The football has been dull, imo much duller than anything a jose team has produced before. You know my opinion on that. Imo its mainly down to the players.
Lots of money has been spent no doubt about it. But yet we have a squad with no proper full backs to speak of. A glaring deficiency for a playmaker in midfield and no right sided player despite everyone having a go.
I think he will address those issues in the summer and if he does improve the quality of player and gets the right blend then the quality of the play will improve a lot.

For me the biggest mistake jose made this season was his team selection at home to Seville I was there that night and it was awful and cost us our place in the last 8.

Totally agree that city's improvement is not only down to the full backs, their keeper was great for the most part sane improved out of sight kdb also and sterling also. But they will miss silva more than many think next season and reappearing this season's feats will be near impossible. Pep has done a great job there over the 2 seasons. But he has been fully backed bought 17 players and had the backing to cull his squad as he saw fit. He got players in ever position that could all fit into his system. If he had players that couldn't play his system or fit his thought process he does what he did the season before. How much did walker have to do with sterling's improvement? A lot I think. Creates space all the time for sterling giving him more time and space to play and run into.

I know you don't think anything will change next season no matter who we buy I beg to differ. He has as you say rightly another 12 months to get his squad together I think he will buy better quality players in some positions and i believe that will lead to better quality football to watch.
A sustained title challenge is what we all want and a trophy. That's what I want every season.
City have set a new benchmark. I think we will rise to the challenge.


3.) 15 May 2018 19:51:57
Jred, when you've been on the site as long as me and you have then it's inevitable that opinions are going to clash at times. What I like about this site is it rarely gets beyond heated debate. There is a respect, whether that is strictly from the posters or because the Ed's make it so doesn't really matter to me.

What's important to remember is we are all on the same side and we all want what is best for our club.

Not that I'm keeping score but that 197 times I was right and 7 times you were. Lol.


4.) 15 May 2018 21:12:19
Shappy
Lol don't always agree but I respect your opinion .
Ken
Is the cream really rising to the top? Same way KDB and co did .
City's biggest improvement is in the players they had but people like yourself struggle to get your head round that .
You say Jose hasn't got the players he wants but what you mean he hasn't got the players you want .
You have gone on and on and on about fellaini . A player Jose likes, not me or shappy ajh or many more but Jose.?
Smalling is another Jose first choice cb you don't rate him but Jose pick A him week After week?

Look at the abuse u give Valencia? Jose made him club captain .


Lol walker and sterling how does sterling play for England with walker . With out pep?
It's such basic opinion it's boring.

Lol your double standards are legendary
Not tell me about the abuse I give valencia. Another of your traits is gross exaggeration when it suits.
When was last time walker played rb behind sterling on the right for England probably asked to do different jobs idiotic point.

Jose was quoted last week that he says he knows he has players that don't or can't cut it. So sounds like he hasn't got the players he wants.

I agreed with most of your post and you stll find a reason to have a poo. You can't help yourself😂😂😂😂😂.

Love all the people who support the manager, but not the team, the players, ethos or tradition of the club.

jred

1.) 14 May 2018 23:36:10
I support the club but the players to an extent. Too many of these players look like they don't give a toss about the club. Back when we had feegie you could see what Utd meant to the likes of evra, vidic, Ferdinand etc. One thing I hated about when we first spent big is that well now be seen as a place to come just to earn big $$$, not based on wanting to play for Utd and we can already see that in the lacksture performances of some players.


2.) 14 May 2018 23:41:20
Actually been embarassing reading some of the posts lately. Some people need to get their heads out of their arses. No wonder we have been labelled toxic with some of the tripe I've read in the last 2 weeks.


3.) 14 May 2018 23:50:50
Nobody said they support the manager and not the club/ players etc. Just because someone has a different opinion or supports the idea of giving the manager another year, doesn’t mean they don’t support the club. I seem to remember you saying further down the page that you don’t care who we sign as you don’t think it would make a difference. Doesn’t sound like supporting the club to me.


4.) 15 May 2018 07:33:58
Exactly Park, I support the club. The manager is a transient employee as are the players but I will stand by what seems the best for the club.

James, you should try reading live chat, it’s tame on here compared to live chat.

Your right tumours. Your right park.

The ethos and traditions of the club are the most important thing, they are what makes us Manchester United. And they should be defended at all costs, even if that means sacrificing short term success to protect what in effect the club really is.

The players, the manager and the staff are just passing through. Some will be remembered for the right reasons others for the wrong ones the rest will mostly be forgotten about. But the club will remain.

I think most people have the clubs best interest at heart, we just differ on what we think is best for the club. One parent believes in one method of discipline for their child, another has a different idea on discipline. We can debate which one is right and which is wrong, but both love their kids and are doing what they think is best.

Some of us feel Jose is the best person to manage us at this time and feel he needs more time, while others feel he isn't going to succeed in the medium to long term and will create more issues that will need resolving when he does leave.

I fall into the latter category, I don't think he has the best intentions for the club just himself. He doesn't buy into the ethos of history of the club. For that reason I don't think he is a good fit for us, even though we will likely pick up a few cups under him.

For me the club is about fight and flair, a cavalier attitude, an expressive and expansive style of football and youth being given a chance (and not just to play the odd game, but to be allowed to make mistakes then grow and learn from them) . I don't see any of that under Jose. Since Sir Alex we have constantly gone for the experienced manager, or as I have come to see them yesterday's men. If we want to build for the future we need tomorrow's man to do it.

Tip top post Park and Trumours. It just feels like some people want Jose to fail so they can they say they knew it all. Some on here pretend they knoq it all but hey there is a reason why we are diacussing football and Jose is Managing the club.

Have some respect and back the Manager and not be negative and wait for him to fail.

Totally agree Shappy. His ego goes before the club and his players. People can criticise the players all they like, but he's the manager, he's the one guiding them, motivating them, advising them, if they are failing, it's because of him.

What annoys me the most is how easily commentators pick apart Mourinho's tactics, they are watching the games and are bewildered by his choices, his approach and come up with easy solutions.

My other concern is financial. With this boring football and our reliance on the international market and picking up further fans in new markets, how is our tedious football going to attract new fans in the long run? Winning trophies doesn't override this, who went on to support Greece after their boring Euro victory in 2004?

It annoys me LovelyLudwigVan or whatever, when these commentators try management themselves and suck at it.
Also some commentators that haven't kicked a ball in there life, or done a good days training and have literally no idea what goes on on the training pitch.

I've no problem with a manager having a go at a player that's playing week in week out.
But putting a player on for an odd game here and there and then singling him out and having a go at him is stupid carry on.
I'm not a big fan of Luke Shaw but the manager puts him on and then has a go at him in public.
If he is not what you want call him in to your office and tell him.
Now he had a few words with pogba and rightly so. he could have a few more words with him.
For me Jose isn't a fit for United.

Ahh Shappy, just imagine yourself in a Liverpool fan's shoes when you say that sacrifice trophies for entertainment. 25 years is it? We came, we saw, we won, we outclassed them, went downhill and are on the up again and they are still. what's the word. "entertaining".

It doesn't have to be mutually exclusive, what we need right now is a couple of pieces to fall into place and we can still be entertaining like Jose's Real and Chelsea were.

FZZ, I'm talking about the ex-football pundits, the likes of Dixon, Le Saux or Townsend, just because they haven't managed, does not mean they do not understand the basic workings of the game. Dixon is actually, surprisingly, quite fair when it comes to United, he acknowledges their pros and points out their flaws, but it's too easy for him to notice obvious problems in the tactical approach (ie. playing narrow against a tight West Brom defence, who cares if he's managed or not, that is just basic stuff) .

United Addict, I'd be interested to see who is gathering the most attention abroad between the tedious football or United or the entertaining football of Liverpool. I currently live in France and teach sports students, they are all enthusiastic about Liverpool and don't have much good to say about United, bar hoping Pogba and Martial do well. It's these kinds of things that can be damaging in the long run, especially in terms of foreign income and investments, which seem a priority in today's game.

LovelyLudwigVan i am not sure on that because i am sure nobody in India (where i come from) had heard of a team called Leicester City until they won the title and i can now vouch for at least a 100 folks who watch them week in week out. What type of football did Leicester play? let's talk about Chelsea too from last season, was their football any better than what we played this season?

As i said, entertainment and results don't have to be mutually exclusive. But for a CD player to play proper music, it needs to have all its parts functioning properly/ perfectly. You can't expect to listen to a symphony if one of the speakers has its wire lose or the disc reader isn't working as it should. Its up to the manager to make sure they work or replace the parts which i am sure our manager is trying. He is expected to put the CD in the reader and let the music play but with malfucntioning parts, the music will be painful which our football has been last season.

Remember when the main issue was cm and all we had to do was buy pogba.
The main issue was creativity all we had to do was buy Sanchez.
Main issue was cb all we had to do was buy lindelof .

Beast makes some good points above the answer isn't always just buy a new shinny toy . which seems to be some fans main objective can u imagine if United got a transfer ban.

Beast I agree with a lot of that .
It's the same with martial the hating started when he was rumoured to be on the move .
For what ever reason people need to justify the sale and treatment of the player.

He has been offered a 5 year contract which talks you a lot .
40 appearances so far in the EPL only lukaku has scored more
If he had went out on loan would he of gained more than that?
Who would of taking up the slack of him not being here?
How would his situation now of been any different, lukaku Sanchez etc would still be at the club he would still want reasurrences over his playing time .
New contract with a lot of other options as he is a top player, big decision .

Leahy you need a long term not short term plan to get the kids in the team .
At the moment 1 bad half and they are straight out .
If you read above people would rather have a 30 year back up striker than give rash more opportunities to progress.

Jose played 4231 for about 70% of games last sèason .
He tends to stick with players so I expect matic to play most games again as well as pogba.
So not really that many places up for grab.

It looks like Fred is on the cards .
Do people think if Jose can't get fellaini to sign he is going to go out and pay a 100 mil on savic to replace him .
