Any truth in the van der Saar interested in united DoF story yday?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what the story is, but have you tried searching?}

edwin van der sar has said he's "interested" in the director of football post but that he has no experience and is happy at Ajax at the moment.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Oct 2019 17:12:06
He politely kind of shrugged it off by saying he needs more experience in the role.

Don't worry I'm sure we will go for the vastly expirenced Darren Fletcher lol.

I think rash is better playing on the left
But I also think martial isn't good enough up front, only turns up when in the mood
We are in bad need of a goalscorer but that's only for starters.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Oct 2019 00:42:07
He might not be but we are not going to get one this winter so it only makes since to let it play out and we will know.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Oct 2019 05:24:06
We may go for Dembele, Mandzukic or Callum Wilson during the January window.

I agree Leahy. Martial sruggles to keep cbs occupied. He’s a good finisher and capable of making intelligent runs, but his linkup play is woeful.

I think that’s the key issue. None of our strikers bring others into the game, and link with the midfield. Thanks just leaves them isolated up front and allows the opposition cbs to coast.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Oct 2019 14:56:28
Martials link up play is not woeful, he has good technique, can trap and hold the ball up effectively.

His issue is the desire to make those runs time and time again even if he doesn't get the ball.

Much better natural striker than rashford.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Oct 2019 16:33:06
He can trap and hold up the ball, but doesn’t bring others into the game. Watch him, his first choice is always to run with the ball.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Oct 2019 22:16:26
Nothing natural about martial in the striker role. Nothing at all imo.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 19:08:38
Think we should buy that young McNair lad. That fella Evan's as well, maybe.

Evening all

Should be a decent game on Sunday tea time.

Will be an almighty battle and a very close game imo. Was wondering who might be fit to return out of your injured players? Pogba, Martial etc?

Agree4 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 17:43:06
Rumour has it Martial might be available for a bit part.

Agree0 0Disagree

Decent game for use lot.

Use shouldn't be worried about getting the 3 points.

Agree1 0Disagree

Virgil

I think it may be closer than people expect. Throughout the 70’s and 80’s when Liverpool were dominant United used to give you some real problems. Pogba, Shaw, AWB and Shaw are rumoured to be fit but that may just be noise. I think it may be a 1 all draw if honest but we need to score first, if you score first I think our confidence could drop.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 18:30:24
No matter how good Liverpool are they will find it tough at ot same as we did at anfield when we were miles better than them. I've seen united lose to crap Liverpool teams. It happens in derby games if we can avoid conceding early it will be close.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - i cant see it being close ken, i dont see any position where united are stronger or any strategy that can control them unfortunately, if you sit back they will mullah you and if you try to take them on they will pick you off with ease, i wish i could offer some words of hope mate i really do...but alas i cant..

14 Oct 2019 19:16:41
Some fair replies without insult, thank you for that. I think it will be a very close game. Despite the form of both teams, form go’s out the window and your pot will be well up for it.

Agree2 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 19:42:32
We will get beat 2.1 or 2.0 and that is because I dint think we will score more then a goal and I can see Liverpool scoring a couple of goals.

The only chance we would have had dis if we have a fully fit Martial and Pogba firing.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 21:14:18
Ed025. Hope your keeping well mate.
Look, its hard to disagree with you ed but in the 70s and 80s we we crap and they were great and they never battered us and we win more than our fair share.
Its a derby i think the work rate will be up and if we get a lead we could make it hard for them. It wouldn't shack me if we scrape a win or draw but we would need our best performance of the season and a some luck.
It would shock me if we are not back to the walls for long periods.
They will be pushing for the win which plays to our strengths to a degree but i agree its unlikely looking at it logically.
But us fans don't always use logic😁
What do you make of your lot ed?
Its a bit glum too. Need a goal scorer too. i'm not so sure silva ole and poch can afford to lose their next 2 games.

Agree2 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 22:25:14
We always raise our game for Liverpool at home. Redmans right even in the late seventies and early eighties we nearly always got a good result. let's see 😁😁.

In the 70's and 80's respect was earnt, as were wages. Now it's a joke. there are no men let alone warriors playing for Manchester United anymore only spoilt little boys with big egos.

Unfortunately I'm with the doomsayers on this one and think we will take a right royal kicking! We're that bad at the moment I think LFC will be very disappointed if they don't give us said kicking.

I know Shaw is a larger fella but no need to name him twice! 😉.

What do people think of this for a midfield 3: Saul Niguez, Ruben Neves and John McGinn? Imagine!

There's no way Aston Villa will sign Niguez and Neves!

A midfield of Saul Niguez, Maddison and McTominay would be immense.

Agree5 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 12:07:52
Betty they have more chance of signing them than we do.

Agree4 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 12:40:16
I think people are missing the point that we desperately need a holding midfielder.

Mctominay is better going forwards, still can't pass the ball well enough to build up, better being used as a box to box midfielder.

Saul is a box to box midfielder as is ruben neves and mcginns best work is done going forwards.

We need a player in the mould of carrick, fabinho and rodri are good examples of that type of player in the premier league that we desperately need. Someone who can build up play and screen the back 4.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 12:42:21
Since we’re playing pretend, why not bring de-age Charlton, Robson and Keane like they just did with De Niro?

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 12:57:19
DSG, I believe we can develop McTominay into a solid DM.
He is 6ft 4, can dominate players, has loads of energy and tenacity.

Other than him, only Declan Rice springs to mind to play the holding role.
Another player with huge potential who will walk into our team.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 13:23:43
I'd give Sander Berge a shot.

Lots of noises about Rakitic and Mandzuikic to us.
I can understand the move Mandzuikic - a short term fix for 10 years. Less than for Rakitic - past his best but still costing 30 million plus high wages. Not sure of English football would suit him at his age considering he spent his better years playing at a much slower tempo.
Tbh I m not very enthusiastic about former Barcelona and Real Madrid players. They see us as a step down and they lose the hunger to play.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 15:55:32
10 million not 10 years.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 16:07:30
Ruben Neves is a very good holding/ playmaking player. Reads the game very well and reminds me of Carrick as much as anyone in the epl. Maybe Rodri can be that type of player under Pep, but bot seen him show the passing range yet that neves has.

Declan rice is an excellent shield, not as good with the ball.

Not seen too much of McGinn, but doesn't fill me with hope that utd are aspiring to have Scotland's midfield!

Matic is now a liability though, Fred more miss than hit, so all of these are an improvement on players in our squad.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 18:20:34
Neves I think is a really good player. but I don't get all the hype over Declan rice think we can do better but not a clue who.

Agree0 0Disagree

Interesting that even with DRS Hamilton couldn’t get past Vettel. He’s going to win it again but he does seem to be limping across the line. I agree re the false start, amazed there was no penalty.

Our yearly wage bill has been released. £332 million. £85 million more than Liverpool, £90 more than City. Granted that was for 2018/ 19 season and we've got some high wages off the books.

Crazy to think what that budget could achieve if we had the proper structure in place to succeed.

Agree3 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 04:22:14
85mn more than liverpool is believable but I am sure the city folk must be paying a lot of unofficial wages that aren't on their books.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 05:59:53
Overpaid mercenaries.

Agree2 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 12:45:16
Stop blaming players for the club’s stupidity.

If the club is stupid enough to throw money at players who are either not good enough, not right for the club, or just can’t be arsed, why shouldn’t they take it?

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 13:44:40
Danny. If they take those wages, they should work their ass off.
But what do we have?
Players with attitude problems and donkeys with little work ethic.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 14:13:41
Again, that’s down to the club.

They identified the players, they gave them the wages, and they can’t get them to ‘work their assess off’.

If you keep bringing in employees who don’t work and perform to their potential, there’s either a problem with recruitment, workplace culture or both.

We kept bringing in players with poor attitudes, and this is the result. Fellaini said that most of the young lads can’t wait to get off the training pitch so they can get on social media. This is a problem with workplace culture created by the club bringing in the wrong personalities.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 15:53:38
It s becoming clear now why no more players were signed in Summer.

The club decided it must balance the books first after the senseless spending in the last few years.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 18:34:18
I agree dev.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 18:35:26
Wow, what a wage bill. Time for wages to be capped and only topped up with goals, clean sheets and wins.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 18:54:53
What happened over the last year is that club realised that they have made a complete mess of recruitment over the last decade, but decided not to change any of their recruitment structures, and left the squad woefully short as they scrambled to get back some of the money they wasted.
