I was told last night that Ole has agreed to step aside once a replacement has been found.

Don't know where this rumour came from but hopefully it has legs.

AJH

1.) 14 Nov 2021 09:22:12
It does seem like the club have used the international break and particularly Ole and the players not being there to assess their options and hopefully through intermediaries reach out to potential candidates to test the waters.


2.) 14 Nov 2021 10:11:33
I think there’s zero chance of Ole agreeing to step aside. If the club replace him, he’ll be getting compensated handsomely.


3.) 14 Nov 2021 11:56:13
If this is true, at least the club aren't rushing around and are taking their time to make a decision.


4.) 14 Nov 2021 16:05:17
I don’t doubt it Danny, but if it is true, at least Woody can crack on without having to be too secretive.


5.) 14 Nov 2021 18:29:34
Maybe he doesn't know he agreed to step aside, just sayin.


6.) 15 Nov 2021 11:22:14
Any truth to the Zidane rumours?


7.) 17 Nov 2021 08:11:26
TOHoM, only that it is true that they are rumours ?.

I’ve loved reading the posts this week and for what it’s worth, here’s my view.

Maguire is not necessarily the greatest defender but he seems like a big character and as has been said he is better than what we have. The price is irrelevant to me, fees are soon forgotten (unlike wages) . I think he will settle quickly and make a difference.

AWB looks a quality buy in a position where we have struggled so I’m confident that will look a steal as the season progresses.

James has huge potential, looking forward to seeing how he develops.

Dybala I don’t want. No idea where it came from and we really shouldn’t be entertaining it. Fancy name, not pulled up any trees for a couple of years, really don’t see where he fits in.

Fernandes look quality and would be a good signing and if we are interested then I have no idea why it is taking so long.

We need to ship Pogba out as quickly as possible, assuming anyone has made any sort of sensible offer. I don’t buy the line that he’s really popular. If he isn’t committed to the cause then he needs to leave.

Sanchez also needs to go. I’d even let him go on a free or nominal fee as it would free up at least £15M because of his ridiculous contract.

Lukaku also needs to go and again I’d take the best offer that is on the table. We may lose on the fees but the benefit to team spirit and morale of shipping out players who don’t want to be her is immense. There’s a bunch of other players we need to move on and again we should make it attractive to potential buyers. Darmian and Rojo for starters.

Imagine those 5 gone, 4 new signings (I’m assuming a CM is coming), and a few from the youth promoted. The feel and mood will be lifted and with the extra fitness and energy, with everyone committed and pulling in the same direction, who knows where we will get to.

I fear there is not enough time left to move players on but for me that is just as important on bringing new ones in.

AJH

1.) 03 Aug 2019 14:37:38
It would be foolish to let pogba leave so late in the window, no chance we have enough time to obtain a replacement.

Saul would fit the bill, but that would be a complicated deal and there are questions marks over whether he would even want to come.

Are SMS or fernandes as good as pogba? if looked at objectively you would say they were not on his level.

Dybala is probably the clearest route to getting rid of lukaku as inter milan are unable to source the funds to do a deal, so this swap deal is a pretty good compromise to get rid of a player who doesn't fit oles style and bring in a player who does.

25, 5 year contract means we have plenty of scope to get a resale value when he inevitably pines for a move to madrid or Barcelona like pogba. Could be a shrewd bit of business by the club.


2.) 03 Aug 2019 14:49:29
DSG, if you put my reservations aside, Ed002 has said Dybala doesn’t want to come. If he’s having to be convinced then we shouldn’t do it,


3.) 03 Aug 2019 15:15:18
Tony do you honestly expect Dybala to happily want to leave a team with Ronaldo and several stars which is guaranteed at least a major trophy and also UCL football every season and come over to us because we are Manchester United?

That ship has sailed!

No matter how attractive a team is, it still has to make an effort to appeal to a prospective player.


4.) 03 Aug 2019 15:18:42
I honestly think you will be surprised how many player would not want to join us this summer. No champions league is a big loss especially in a window where bayern, real, Barcelona and juve are all making big deals.

Look at sancho, he realised that coming to united this window would be not be ideal for his development when we are undergoing significant changes and his development was much better suited staying at dortmund.

Does that mean we shouldn't go in for him next summer when we will still need to convince him we are the right club with the right stability for him to continue his development?

Dybala is an oppurtune signing granted but if he does join it won't be against his will, quite a few player over the year have needed to be convinced/ persuaded to join clubs.


5.) 03 Aug 2019 15:23:18
I really don't get why people would wants Pogba to stay. Old may say all the right things about Pogba having a great attitude blah blah blah, but the player clearly wants out.
If we keep hold of him against his wishes we will just have the same circus every transfer window. It's unsettling for everyone, including Old, despite what he may say in public.

Pogba is obviously talented and is a match winner on his day. I understand that, but keeping an unhappy player is counter productive.

On the flip side, we shouldn't be forced to sell him on the cheap. But over inflating his price so that he is effectively priced out of a more is daft in my opinion.

Despite the fact that some fans 'hero worship' some players, Pogba is not worthy of that label. Talent is nothing without application, effort and desire and Mr Pogba is severely lacking in the later.


6.) 03 Aug 2019 15:35:43
Until last week his name hadn’t come up, nobody on here had suggested we try and buy him or he would add anything to our team. Now suddenly many are drooling over him and I don’t get it. We should have learned from Di Maria. He doesn’t want to come, allegedly he wants £350K a week, allegedly his agent wants £13M, it’s possibly taken our focus from Fernandes. The only positive I can see is we lose Lukaku, that’s about it.

I don’t really buy the Champions League argument. Actually I do buy it and it hacks me off. There’s only a few teams that will win it, and there seems to be a snobbishness that has materialised with players ‘not wanting to take a step down’. I’m not sure how we’ve allowed it to become so important, for me the domestic title is still the biggest trophy by far.


7.) 03 Aug 2019 15:37:47
Of course he needs convincing AJH. He is not a fan like is. He is at a top club where his life family and friends are and you think a good pitch and lots of reassurances are not required.
You don't seem to be the sort of chap to make knee jerk life changing decisions without due consultation and thought process and advice. Do you think dybala should?


8.) 03 Aug 2019 15:56:18
Is aguero not a good example why is it always di Maria.
Do people think aguero was a life long city fan desperate to move to a team that had won nothing for years?
Or did him and his agent need a bit of convincing and a bucket of cash .

I'm not saying we should or shouldn't sign him but there's a bit of a line in the sand starting with one or 2 players,


9.) 03 Aug 2019 16:02:27
Of course he's reluctant. We're not exactly known for stability are we. He enjoys life in Italy and is reluctant to leave. But Juve are forcing him out.


10.) 03 Aug 2019 16:03:54
Madrid have been making sensible offers for Pogba throughout this window.

UTD think they can get more with very little other clubs being able to afford him.

Only a few clubs or so at the over inflated fee and wages able to afford Pogba which sees UTD keeping a player who wants to leave *evil laugh*.

Barcelona not going to sign Pogba.


11.) 03 Aug 2019 16:09:33
What offers have real made?


12.) 03 Aug 2019 16:24:59
Guys AJH has a point. The problem is not there is a convincing required for Dybala. But why to convince a player who is not seen as much needed who is not willing to move to us who will demand monstrous wage who has stalled for the past year. If it is someone who we have identified as main target it's worth going through the trouble. Imagine we sign him and has not really worked out then we will have another player on 350k wages very difficult to move.


13.) 03 Aug 2019 16:35:27
I said the same to shappy last week jred.
People are saying don't sign him he doesn't want to be here. Yet those same purple are saying keep pogba even though he doesn't want to be here.
If dybala comes and he and the team are successful he will love it at United. Just like aguero has done.
Im not desperate for him to sign if he does it would be potentially a very good and exciting signing.


14.) 03 Aug 2019 17:00:59
My wider point is he hadn't been mentioned by anybody, the fans hadn't suggested him nor were the club pursuing him. Suddenly a swap is on, not exactly thought through is it?


15.) 03 Aug 2019 17:02:49
You could say the same with pogba, if go his and uniteds way he may have a change in heart .
Not sure why everything needs to be set in stone .
I'm far from convince dybala would be a good fit in the epl, who who knows.


16.) 03 Aug 2019 17:11:34
Is it possible for a player to come in, not really wanting to come in at first and then change his mind? If he is the consummate professional, he might also put in some decent performances.

Also, he could just say no right now?


17.) 03 Aug 2019 18:00:01
Ajh
He was mentioned a few month ago, don't know if the reports where true but he was linked a few months back.
But some times a player becomes available and you take a chance, any Cole, king Eric.

Angel
Is it possible that a player wants to leave then circumstances change and he changes his mind, Or do we hold it against him for the rest of his career.


18.) 03 Aug 2019 18:01:09
The club have had interest in dybala for 12 months according to ed002. i'm not convinced but he is a very talented player so if he settles it could work out.
Pogba is here and if he stays and does well he may well have a change of heart i agree but i'm not one for keeping unhappy players it usually doesn't work out. We can on my hope it does if he stays.


19.) 03 Aug 2019 19:33:15
Hi jred, not at all. I think if a player has a change of heart and wants to stay, put in the performances etc, he should most definitely get the chance. I think that's quite fair. But definitely no point keeping a player that is unhappy and wants to move. Does this answer work?

Is there a particular player you are talking about or just anyone in general?


20.) 03 Aug 2019 20:00:04
Angel
To many to mention to be honest once any one makes a mistake or reportedly does you want them out.
Lazy bad attitude said this said that.


21.) 03 Aug 2019 20:17:14
No, I'd like you to mention them. Very happy to give you my reasons behind everyone.

I'm quite sure that when I have shown my dissatisfaction in a player it is usually merited, justified.

I don't call for players to be bought and sold like in a game of FIFA.

I also am very happy to back good, hard working and loyal players when many dont. Again, when I feel its justified.

Feels like you're just having a pop though. It's something you like to do quite often. I hope I haven't upset you at any point. Or will you hold my opinions against me for the rest of my time posting on here? 😊.


22.) 03 Aug 2019 22:15:30
We have appointed Director of football - it's AJH

All sound decisions taken. 🤫.


23.) 04 Aug 2019 09:23:15
Reading the page the last day or two it’s clear we don’t need any insight from Ed002 as maxlfc knows absolutely everything about our club lol.


24.) 04 Aug 2019 20:42:32
Oh man :P
Wrote a post about how the youngsters are doing, and how you feel about them and this turned into Pogba/ Dybala debate.


25.) 05 Aug 2019 07:31:02
To be honest guys I don't care and the reason is we are focusing on players not playing for our club.
When the focus should be #GlazersOut.


 

 

24 Mar 2018 10:31:23
There are some that said Jesse wasn’t good enough and I guess there are still some that think he is at best a squad player but you have to give the lad credit. He keeps popping up scoring important goals and he plays with a smile on his face and seems to enjoy every moment. I’m so pleased for him and I hope he can take that final step and be consistent.

AJH

1.) 24 Mar 2018 16:25:04
He has always been highly thought off within the club. It was always accepted that he would take longer to find his feet due to his size. I read an interview with him where he said that Sir Alex always said he would become a real player when he's 25 like Tigana. I wonder how much of him really stepping up this season is down to him feeling that this year was going to be his year.

I did worry when we signed Sanchez as it was going to push either Lingard or Martial out of the side when arguably they we our best two forwards at that time. Maybe its time for Sanchez to be dropped for a game or two and make him fight for his place against players who are in form.


2.) 24 Mar 2018 16:40:40
Shaps, I don’t know why we bought Sanchez other than to stop City buying him. We had needs inother areas way before a left sided attacker was needed and even if he starts firing it just relegates Martial or Rashford. This smacks of Woodward and his marque signing obsession. I don’t want to upset you but if Bale is available you can bet your mortgage Ed will be there waving his chequebook.


3.) 24 Mar 2018 16:46:51
The thing with Jesse is you know he will work on the pitch and not hide. He has proven this year that he has more in the locker than people thought imo but he had the beginnings of a good season couple of years back when he got ani injury early on at Swansea I think. Change of personel and management has not deterred him and I think he has saved us a good few bob on bringing in a n other player.


4.) 24 Mar 2018 16:58:44
I was one of those thinking he wasn't going to be up to it and would be sold, at times I feel foolish, but then he can be anonymous far too often for me (like most of our attacking players) .

I still think in order for us to be competing at the very top we need better than Lingard. But if he improves again as much as he has over the past 18 months then he will deserve a regular berth in a top Utd team.

I love his energy and clever runs, maybe there is even more to come from him once we get back to playing proper attacking football and those runs will be picked out by players that currently refuse the pass and opt for 'safety' instead. I certainly would like him to impact games more consistently as well, 10 seconds of brilliance now and again is good, but we need more than that over a 90 minute match from an attacking midfielder.


5.) 24 Mar 2018 17:39:38
I agree Beastand that was my point about consistency. When he is good he is very good but often you can forget he is on the pitch, which is very frustrating when he gets himself in such good positions and scores such important goals. He needs to turn up for more games than he does, which I think he will if he continues to develop as he has done in the last year. And he is home grown which means a lot to me,


6.) 24 Mar 2018 17:52:11
Does he go missing or as mentioned above is it a case of him making good runs and his team mates not playing the creative pass to find him?

The best players score in the big games, which he does more consistently than those around him. H deserves his place in the team, he works hard, he offers movement and he can finish. I think he will thrive if we add more quality to the midfield. He is a bit of a social media whore, but as long as he performs on the pitch it’s not a problem. I wish pogba put half the effort in he does.


7.) 24 Mar 2018 18:33:58
Agree with all of the posts regarding jesse in some degree, better than dele alli in my opinion who plays a similar role especially this season.


8.) 25 Mar 2018 05:21:49
I must be the only one who doesn't yet rate him. He for me is going through his Smalling patch where player looks good for a season or 2 but with lingard it has only been 2 months rather than the whole season.

He was mostly anonymous until December and has been anonymous for most part since February. That is 2 good months in 3-4 years. Yes he scores some important goals from time to time but he going to have to perform much better to be more than a squad player.


9.) 25 Mar 2018 16:58:04
No MU player apart from De Gea has been sensational for long, playing good for some time and then playing poorly.


10.) 26 Mar 2018 14:14:47
CSM, that's not really fair, even if he's only started looking like a real top player this season, he's actually been doing well for the last couple of years. He was hardly "anonymous" before December anyway. 8 goals and assists in 17 games, 11 of which he played 30 minutes or less in, may not be setting the league on fire, but it's certainly not "anonymous".

Re: the consistency, I'm inclined to agree with Huggy. He's suffering from the way the team is playing, and would have a much more consistent impact if the runs he makes were picked out a bit more often by players behind him. Now, I'm not saying he's doing everything right, maybe he'd still be a bit inconsistent with players behind him looking for those runs and playing more positive football, but the point is that we don't really know, and I don't think it's fair to judge him too harshly when we don't really know how much of the inconsistency is down to him, and how much is down to the way the teamas a whole is playing.

I would really love to see Herrera used in a more advanced role, ahead of Matic rather than alongside him, where he can look to play the passes that someone like Lingard can feed on. It's too easy to see his great defensive performances last season and forget that he's a great passer of the ball, with an eye for getting team mates in behind the defence.


11.) 26 Mar 2018 14:23:10
That FA cup winning goal seemed to really kick him on and he’s improved a lot since then.

CSM,

How you can say he’s been anonymous is beyond me, he’s probably scored more important goals than any other player in the last 2 years.


12.) 26 Mar 2018 14:53:27
Gds important goals don't mean consistency. Yes he scored against Chelsea and in fa cup final but can you remember a run of games until December where you could say he was consistently good. A first team player needs to be consistently good and unlike rashford or martial lingard isn't exactly in the youngster category.

Thorne he has been good this season but last season he had 5 goals and 3 assists in 42 games in lvg's last season he had 7 goals and 4 assists in 41 games. Those are not good figures and he needs get similar to his current nos before we can be sure that he has improved rather than going through a purple patch.

Also where exactly will he play next season jose wants savic added to the team and jorginho as replacement for carrick, so we most likely will be switching to a mf 3.


13.) 30 Mar 2018 18:44:50
Good player, nice lad, silly dancer.


 

 

17 Feb 2018 08:31:11
Interesting rumour this morning, Real ready to move for Pogba. Could be paper trash talk of course but if they did and the money was big, would you sell? Clearly the boy has talent but he has yet to dominate a game or deliver on his potential. Is that down to him, the Manager, or a combination of both.

If the money was silly should we cash in? The problem with that is that he may go on and become the dominating player we believe is in there somewhere, and replacing him will cost a fortune too. For me, I’d seriously consider it though.

AJH

{Ed002's Note - There is zero interest in Paul Pogba from Real Madrid. They have very, very different ideas who they want.}


1.) 17 Feb 2018 11:41:22
There is no way we should be selling Pogba it would be crazy to do so.

Its likr selling the next messi and then trying to go buy a next ronaldo because we are noy patient enough.


2.) 17 Feb 2018 11:59:12
"Cash in" wtf? So some now want to sell Pogba when we have few midfielders for a pretty poor return? You bored with FIFA?


3.) 17 Feb 2018 11:20:17
Yay. Thanks ed for that.


 

 

12 Jan 2018 21:19:21
All this talk of Sanchez has masked the rumour that Vardy is also being considered. Not sure if they would sell or at what price but I think he would slot in much easier, albeit he is a like for like with Lukaku. Sanchez’s attitude worries me, the stories from Arsenal about his isolationist approach do not bode well for team spirit. Hey ho, what do I know?

AJH

1.) 12 Jan 2018 21:28:45
I hope not. Hateful diving git, Gerrard, suarez, terry, barton, keown, cattermole, Vardy. all the same to me would of hated to see any of them in a red shirt.


2.) 12 Jan 2018 23:05:33
That's one heck of a team those lot would make. Lacks some wide players tho.


3.) 13 Jan 2018 05:53:05
bfbw, there too much hate in your heart, i'd have had Keown and Suarez any day of the week. Go hug a tree man.


4.) 13 Jan 2018 08:10:14
AJH Vardy is a player Maze likes and admired over the years for his tenacity as well as his rags to riches story but to say he is a better option than Sanchez is silly, very silly.

Wake up AJH you are dreaming of poorly fabricated scenarios.

Ok, enough already. We know the club is in need of serious reform, we know we have players who don’t want to be here, we know Ed didn’t have a clue when it came to football, we know we’ve overpaid for average payers, we know we don’t have a plan for youngsters.

But come on, we remain one of the biggest names in world football with a fan base second to none. We have lacked leadership both on and off the pitch but both of those are eminently fixable. We have deep pockets so whilst we need to improve our scouting, we have the money to buy the best. If players would rather go to other clubs then f£&# them, we don’t need them, they don’t understand our club.

We need to fix some things, but this whining narrative that we are the worst club in the world is both childish and wrong. We are not where we need to be, there are things we need to fix, but we are United. Never forget it, on today of all days.

AJH

1.) 06 Feb 2022 22:32:36
Not the day to argue this AJH, but we’re sadly the gift that keeps giving to rival supporters.


2.) 06 Feb 2022 22:53:41
Tony agreed. However, the players are mostly excellent, however, the structure and running of the club on the footballing side from our owners is very poor. And I can't see that changing.
RR is doing a very good job imo, bit if the hierarchy don't back him over matters such as Martial, lingard then no matter how deep our pockets are, we'll still be in the same rubbish for the next 5 years.


3.) 07 Feb 2022 14:10:16
I think the owners of the club are fully aware that the we need a reset, having finally realized that the Woodward/ Ferguson axis of influence has been a disaster. It has to be swept away. However that is often easier said than done - even self-defeating power structures like to hold on. The club infrastructure has been stocked with Ferguson era loyalists. The "We've always done it this way and it worked for us" crowd.

The problem the owners have is that that they know nothing about the game and they are not on hand. Thus they have to delegate. There is no guarantee that the old guard won't scupper Rangnick, or that he will be successful even if they fail, but one things for sure, the change was too long in coming. We need to get behind RR because his task will not be an easy one. Our economic and fan base advantages over our immediate rivals have effectively disappeared . The club is now regarded with as much respect as Boris Johnson.


4.) 07 Feb 2022 15:56:30
If the reset does'nt start with removing Fergie from the picture, it will be a waste of time.


5.) 07 Feb 2022 20:00:10
After Busby's second spell it took 5 permanent managers to get Fergie, our next permanent manager will be the fifth appointment since Fergie retired, just saying.


 

 

02 Feb 2022 20:50:56
Watched Diallo in the Glasgow derby, he looked overawed. Hooked at half time he contributed very little in the first half. To be fair, Rangers were pretty poor but he wasn’t in the game. At least it is character building.

AJH

1.) 02 Feb 2022 23:06:05
Rangers to a man were awful. Celtic were inspired. Superb first 45 minutes. Was very entertaining and the atmosphere there - wow!


2.) 03 Feb 2022 07:35:02
Old Trafford is like a morgue. Even when we were winning. Awful atmosphere created by our home fans usually. Odd exception but most other stadia are better.
Our away fans are best and loudest in the league.


3.) 03 Feb 2022 10:16:44
Get Ange in as manager in the summer, teams play great football, good eye for a player, turned around a real mess there at Celtic and seems like a guy who won't stand for any nonsense as he called out the board at the start of the season for not giving him the signings he needed ( I know what people will say but on a serious note if he can keep up the job he's doing, in a couple of seasons i could see a few clubs come calling )

{Ed007's Note - You can pi$$ right off! ? We have big plans for Ange, well the guys on our forum and podcast do lol He turns 57 this year so we give him another 2/3 years coaching the first team and then move him up to become our DOF.}

Struggling to work up any enthusiasm for the transfer window, not really enjoying the game right now and our club has some very serious issues to address.

But, if we do offload DVB and Lingard, on the back of shipping out Martial, then we have moved out 3 players who were sat on the sidelines and were probably unhappy about it. No matter how professional they might be I suspect there was negative energy around the place impacting everyone. Let’s promote youth to bolster the squad and see if we can change the mood.

Clearly, the events of yesterday will be hitting everyone, it needs some real leadership from Ralf or senior players to get hold of everyone and address it. The law will rightly deal with MG, the team needs to step up.

As I said, my heart really isn’t in this right now.

AJH

1.) 31 Jan 2022 17:01:27
Agreed ajh. It's like the heart and soul is gone out of the club.
A long road ahead on and off the field. and from top to bottom.


2.) 31 Jan 2022 16:35:52
I agree, I'm not particularly downbeat about not making any signings. It's clear Ralf has confidence in himself and the players left. He gave the Green light for a lot of players to leave where our previous manager hoarded players to the detriment of the club.

I see this next few months like eating sweets for years whilst avoiding the dentist. We left it awhile so it's not going to be pretty in the short-term but if all goes to plan we'll come out smiling soon.


3.) 31 Jan 2022 18:10:17
we don't need signings to make top 4. save the cash for the new manager.

Tony, to an extent I feel the same. The club is slowly moving further and further away from my United.

I miss the days where the players wanted to play for the club and gave 100% as a bare minimum.

When we gave kids a chance, when we played with a swagger and attacking vurve.

Maybe I'm just getting older and cynical, but there doesn't seem to be anything wholesome about our club at the minute. Just a trust fund set up for some spoiled rich kids. As long as the bottom line keeps the dividends high enough who gives a ****.

Cheap words, and frankly transparent PR statements put out by the club but with no intent to actually do anything.

The Ronaldo signing was at best a Tom Brady style roll of the dice, at worst a cynical PR stunt to boost value ahead of a share sale. The problem is the EPL isn't a draft league where most teams are fairly similar in quality and a great manager and a key signing can be enough to win you the Superbowl. In the EPL many years of neglect while others around us have built great footballing sides means we are miles off the top. A Tom Brady style signing was never going to amount to much with this squad in this shape.

Now it turns out that our brightest young star probably (and rightly) has no future in football.

Just another one to take on the chin.

Yep. I’ve certainly got less passion for this club than I used to. Maybe I’m just older and have better/ more meaningful things to do.

The news today is sobering and awful and unacceptable. This is the tip of a very big iceberg with some players thinking they can do what they want. Whether it’s acting like a knob, prostitutes, drunk driving, betting, assault, or in this case sexual assault the list is long and varied.

Players are placed on pedestals and believe their own hype, ‘I can do whatever I please’ is the mantra' although in today’s case there can be no misunderstanding about fame making this anything other than a heinous crime deserving of serious punishment. Anyone who commits sexual assault is absolutely aware that what they are don’t is wrong and unacceptable

I’m trying to make a wider point about football in general losing all sense of moral purpose. If rumours are true the club knew about this then I’m not sure where that leaves us. Wouldn’t it be good if our club stood for something, had clear standards, and stood by them. Unfortunately it seems winning is everything and honesty, decency, and integrity aren’t valued. Money is God.

If the club did know about this all along, then who and where does the buck stop at/ with. What happens next. Surely there must be some people leaving the club if that is the case.

But you’re very right, players believe their own hype and are in the own worlds.

Without this sounding bad, I hope if it’s true that he has done what I’ve read then the usual trial by social media doesn’t derail the proper investigations.


2.) 30 Jan 2022 20:40:19
Let’s be clear that there is nothing to say the club knew anything about this, obviously people will throw that type of mud at us because of who we are!

You think people like RR and ole for example would know about that behaviour and accept it from the point of view of a father to daughters as they both are!

No chance! I trust the club will act correctly when they are allowed to do so .

{Ed014's Note - this has zero to with who WE are! ?‍♂️


3.) 30 Jan 2022 20:59:11
Chris, I’m talking above it football generally, as I said it’s a wider point. The game has competent lost its way. A World Cup in Qatar, obscene money swirling around, and all too regular players doing silly, bad, awful things.

Sometime I wish I hated football as there is so much that turns my stomach.


4.) 30 Jan 2022 21:10:30
Disagree Ed, this should not be turned into a pile on about the football club . As things stand only two things matter, firstly Greenwood is dealt with accordingly by the Authorities, and the poor girl in question is looked after and can finally breathe a big sigh of relief she has help . Rumours about who knew what and said this to who are exactly that, mud slinging rumours that should be treated as such.


5.) 30 Jan 2022 21:20:24
Agree with that…I’d say if we knew some of the things that goes on beneath the surface we’d like the game even less.


6.) 30 Jan 2022 21:22:44
AJH I’m completely with you and that’s more the point I’m making! . That’s why I don’t see why we’re even discussing our club! It’s another sad, vile indictment of where our game is going! Money greed and vile characters who are so unattached to us normal football folk it’s incredible!


7.) 30 Jan 2022 22:06:57
Chris the point ajh is making is that football has lost its moral compass and the clubs have a responsibility to act in a fit and proper way. This applies to the way the players behave in general, but especially the horrible way Greenwood "has" behaved.
One thing is we luckily live in a civilised society where we are innocent until proven guilty. If he's proven guilty, then the full force of the law should and will be thrown at him.

Buck up Ken. Not far behind the mighty Shappy on your posts. Although the word count might paint a different picture??.


2.) 23 Jan 2022 18:33:23
I can think of an unprintable 2 word reply to that one UA but I'm to much of a gentleman??
To me shappy is the top poster on here.
Without him and his long winded coveluted well thought out posts that eventually end up contradicting themselves none of us would have anything to debate. He starts many a thought provoking threads.
Alas. If there is a short answer to any question shappy doesn't know it. ??.


3.) 23 Jan 2022 19:22:04
He clearly has far too much time on his hands!


4.) 23 Jan 2022 20:31:56
I saw the first table and seen I was in third, and thought "that's not too bad, obviously I don't spend too much time on here" even if it is Ed001 who owns the page is top.

Then the second table killed me. The difference between me in first and Ken in second is 500 posts. Basically the difference between me and Ken is greater than the total number of replies posted by anyone outside the top ten.

And let's not even get into word count ?‍♂️?.


5.) 23 Jan 2022 21:11:19
How on Earth did somebody post more than Shappy ? good to see the stats though. Diverse mix of posters and posts ?.


6.) 23 Jan 2022 22:48:04
Why do I not remember so many posts from Tim but remember every post from Shappy?

We slated a ole for nit giving him a chance, and yet here is a new manage also not giving him any game time. Clearly the issue appears to be the player himself.

Haidara’s name keeps coming up but I don’t see him as much more than a slightly upgraded version of Fred. Werner is awful. He works hard and presses but he misses continually.

He’s getting great experience in a cimoeetige league, it will be fantastic experience for him. I have no idea if he can step up but I watched Mount at Derby and whilst he looked ok, he has taken that extra step. Garner is getting sharp in a tough league, he needs to be given a chance.
