Ed02

Thomas Muller is potentially available in January, I know you have already given an transfer update but do you think the club may look at taking him? .

BIG V

{Ed002's Note - Thomas Muller (F) is miffed because he has been on the bench but Bayern Munich will not sell him without a replacement and there is nothing to indicate that he will be available in January. And why would Manchester United want him?}


1.) 09 Oct 2019 13:44:19
I asked my self the same question, but then I thought they will be desperate and probably pick the wrong deal.

I'm not sure if he has the ability to make any sort of impact in the premiership.


2.) 09 Oct 2019 17:14:48
Wow. another 30 year old plus who can't get a game and is after one last massive pay day. Have we not learnt our lesson yet?


3.) 09 Oct 2019 21:05:03
May aswell bring zlatan back lads.


4.) 11 Oct 2019 12:54:36
I think I would rather have Wayne Rooney short term from Jan to May.


5.) 13 Oct 2019 17:37:33
No thanks to Muller.

I've bee told pogba is pushing for 500,000 a week to stay at United and they are considering it.

This is also holding up the de gea deal.

Feel like its 1 step forward 2 steps back with this club and it is so annoying.

Anyway onto the game at the weekend, I see another difficult game but I think we will get over the line.

Have fun chaps.

BIG V

1.) 29 Aug 2019 10:25:37
He needs to be sold. His heart isn't in it. Ed002 has stated numerous times he wants go. If he left, the team can move on and stop babysitting him throughout games.


2.) 29 Aug 2019 15:38:21
I’d sell him even if it ‘weakens’ us in the short term. We’ve moved Lukaku and Sanchez on, that’s 2 gone, Pogba is the remaining one who seems to not want to be here. If the price is right, take it.


3.) 29 Aug 2019 20:32:24
I agree, let pogba go. £500,000 if true is a joke. Obviously there is no knowing if it is true or BS. Ed002 might have an inkling i guess but won't want to comment, which i don't blame him for when it comes to money.

I'd rather get rid of Pogba now, accept we have a huge battle on our hands this season if so, but be ready to recruit well in January or summer, with a cleaner slate having cleared out some of the big money problems, and some of the crap footballers we have been stuck with.

Has he been frozen out?

Bolger,

Are you quoting Frozen?

I hope so.

I am going mightily embarrassed if you are not and I have just announced to the web that I know the words to the songs in that film.

In my defence I have young daughters.


6.) 05 Aug 2019 18:01:09
Jonny Blaze, having young daughters in your defence is probably better than having 80m Maguire and Smalling.

Sorry. Liverpool fan. Couldn't resist.


7.) 05 Aug 2019 18:24:24
Don’t worry hhan, your man van dijk will soon be the most expensive defender in the world again when Liverpool sell him on to a big club in a season or two.


8.) 05 Aug 2019 18:25:05
Clearly your wit is lost on most, Mort.

I was following on from mort it was only suppost to be "olaf"

Let's just hope inter can sven the money to buy him.

In answer to your OP, quite possibly frozen out for revealing the sprint stats, I imagine some of his fellow professionals are non too happy with that either.


14.) 05 Aug 2019 21:26:09
Maybe found his level back at Anderlecht.


15.) 05 Aug 2019 22:22:18
He wanted to go to Juventus but his touch took him to Anderlecht.


16.) 05 Aug 2019 22:22:45
I've got it. He was training with United and had to chase his first touch.


17.) 06 Aug 2019 07:15:20
It's a long way to Italy hopefully this is the first leg of the journey. Just hope the next leg is not at home.


18.) 06 Aug 2019 08:31:13
Surprised nobody had the real answer, united players had some time off this week so lukaku was over in Belgium and went training with them, he has done this before, it wasn’t instead of training at united. Great frozen banter though guys.


19.) 06 Aug 2019 09:25:42
GDS, you party pooper.


 

 

28 Jul 2019 16:47:52
So last time I got told there was a medical due in the week it was james.

I've been told there is a medical due midweek, no names given.

As per usual the info is not mine so don't know how truthful it is.

Well maguire has had 3 medicals already.


Hopefully your right again mate



Thanks for sharing.


5.) 29 Jul 2019 06:39:20
Maybe Ed is doing medicals on the NHS to save some money, that is why it takes 6 weeks to get an appointment.


 

 

05 Jul 2019 22:33:21
Pogba has rejected a new contract offer and has asked for a ludicrous amount to stay, Ed rejected this hence the leak of his agent saying everyone has know he wanted to leave a while ago.

Lukaku might be off to Italy, Juventus and Inter milan are trying to raise money for them, also has an offer from a Chinese club.

We are looking at Rakitic and Utimit in a double deal that could cost towards 100 million.

This is what I have been told, how true is always I do not know.

BIG V

1.) 06 Jul 2019 00:12:31
Let that clown leave, i hope the club get as much money as they can for him and the sooner the better.


2.) 06 Jul 2019 05:42:06
Unfortunately despite all of his talent, Pogba doesn't have the mental ability to lead a team and take it to the next level, which is what was expected of him at United.
It's a shame you cannot return players under the Consumer Rights Act as faulty, I can think of a few I would put on the list.


3.) 06 Jul 2019 07:19:46
BIG V:
"Pogba has rejected a new contract offer and has asked for a ludicrous amount to stay, Ed rejected this hence the leak of his agent saying everyone has know he wanted to leave a while ago. "

That doesn't sound to me like he has asked to terminate his contract and move on. Personally I think he should go but the above, as it stands, is very different and sounds more like his agent trying to put United in the position of initiating the sale and would affect the fee we can ask and compensation we pay him etc. Mino is a rat and needs to be put in the situation whereby his client requests the termination of the contract and I'm not convinced that is the situation at the moment.


4.) 06 Jul 2019 07:21:14
Who expected pogba to lead the team and take it to the next level by himself? If you did then you were being unrealistic.

Most teams go up to the next level by having a very good manager with a very good style of playing and then buying very good players to fit into that.

Pogba seemed to have enough mental ability to help france win the world cup.


5.) 06 Jul 2019 08:01:40
I’m afraid a combo of Pogba’s personality and an agent such as his means he’ll al aye want to be looking for the next new shiny thing. Move him on, and Lukaku, and get some harmony back in the club. I’ll bet anyone a £1 we We will see the real Alexis Sanchez too once Pogba leaves.


6.) 06 Jul 2019 08:44:36
Pogba leaving is the one piece of transfer news I look for everyday.

Unbelievably talented but can’t be bothered most days. Clearly doesn’t want to be at the biggest club in the works. Has to go.

Plus the reported unrest in the dressing room and the effect his attitude has on other, younger impressionable players. Has to go.

And not that bothered about Lukaku either tbh - died t suit OGS’s reported style of play.

Get rid of both.


7.) 06 Jul 2019 09:09:35
Wallace,

Absolutely agree 100% and I don’t really understand anybody’s arguments for wanting to keep him, he was poor last season when we needed him, the previous manager called him a virus, he’s everything that is wrong with our club to be honest and now he’s said he wants to leave and some people are still saying we should keep him. Beggars belief, if we are to rebuild getting rid of pogba would be the perfect start imo.


8.) 06 Jul 2019 09:10:08
DSG, sorry, but how exactly did Pogba "help" France win the World Cup?


9.) 06 Jul 2019 10:48:13
The bloke is an A hole, can't wait ft for him to get gone. Same for Sanchez.

Saul would be an amazing upgrade.


10.) 06 Jul 2019 11:27:45
Raghav,

I would say by playing every minute of their games in that world cup at a high level and scoring a goal in the final.

Wasnt their best player but he definitely “helped” them.

I am definitely in the camp of getting rid of him but i don't see the need to trash him or slander him. Very good player, both parties can improve from a parting of ways.


11.) 06 Jul 2019 12:34:35
Pogba looked decent at the world cup because of kante and matuidi doing all the graft


He is not a team player


As ed said players come and go



As long as the players than come give 100 percent that's all we ask for a bit if desire.


12.) 06 Jul 2019 12:46:55
Spot on Bolger2

He’s brilliant every now and then, average most weeks and absolutely rubbish in the big games or when we are getting beat.

His attitude is disgusting and can’t wait for him to leave and be replaced by someone happy to wear the shirt.

His agent is a complete idiot and this has been his plan along from the day he signed back up for us. He disrespected us once by leaving, and regardless of how good he was/ is, he should have never got the chance to do it again.

Can’t wait to have him gone!


13.) 06 Jul 2019 13:46:06
Pogba looked decent at the world cup because of kante and matuidi doing all the graft.

Player plays well with other good players. I am shocked.


14.) 06 Jul 2019 13:59:56
Brilliant player. Will be sadly missed. Messed around by two inappropriate managers.

The saving grace is that we will recover the fee and some of the fee that was missed when he first departed.


15.) 06 Jul 2019 14:14:08
Frenchman,

Absolute nonsense, messed around in what way? The guy never wanted to be here and played when he wanted to, nobody messed him around and he played in most games under Ole. In fact the only game I remember him not playing was our biggest win in Paris where he was suspended and everybody else played for the shirt. After that he was woeful.

I can’t wait for him to leave, we are a big club and deserve to have a squad of players who want to be here, if you don’t then off you go, we might take some time to get back where we want to be but we certainly aren’t going to do it with players like pogba.

I think the post above about Sanchez is a little harsh though, I am yet to see a lack of effort from him, he looks like he’s always tried hard, it just hasn’t worked out for him so far.


16.) 06 Jul 2019 14:35:53
I always thought he was going to end up another Anelka. Pimped around by his agent like a common whore. But I'm not bitter :)


17.) 06 Jul 2019 17:05:15
If France had a different player playing instead of Pogba at the World Cup they prob would have still won it.


18.) 06 Jul 2019 17:13:41
Pogba will not leave. Neither Real Madrid nor Juventus can afford him.


19.) 06 Jul 2019 16:56:52
Pogba can be great surrounded by the right players in the right league he will excel. Best of luck to him. He should have been sold last summer. i'm not sure any clubs want to pay what the club are looking for. i'm bored of the whole saga now. I won't miss him as a player i won't miss the circus he brings to town.


20.) 06 Jul 2019 17:49:51
Can’t wait to see the back of him. Stroll around the pitch like it’s a training match. Would of much preferred to give Herrera a decent contract and see Pogba on his way. The lads a muppet. Lingard and Rashford are irritating me more and more with their social media obsession.

#Pogoff.


21.) 06 Jul 2019 19:25:40
Nice, like the hashtag.

We should get it trending.


22.) 06 Jul 2019 20:09:39
I just hope we don't price him out of a move (nor have our pants taken down)
He plays as he does because he doesn't want to be here. Just think how awful he will be next season if if he really really really doesn't want to be be here.
Exit - sooner the better for me.


23.) 06 Jul 2019 21:15:21
DSG,

I am not slandering any player at all, but this fellow Pogba gets on everyone's nerves, doesn't he? All of us, barring a few, would like to see him gone.

If he'd put even an ounce of the effort you think he put in the WC, then I'm sure we'd at least be happy about the fact that he tried to help the team, but we failed him. And that is why he wants to move on.

I can't for a second forgive a midfielder for jogging or slow walking in the centre of the pitch after either losing the ball or misplacing a pass. I'm sure neither can you.

A lot of people credit him for carrying France on his shoulders (I've been banned on the Red Devils Reddit sub for voicing my opinion on him) . But as Bolger has said, he was made to look good by players around him. He is not the player we think he is, heck, I don't even know if he knows what kind of a player he is.

The sooner this saga ends, the better. I think we all will be at a happier place once he leaves. I'd be over the moon and extremely delighted if we would sign Saul, but I don't know what will happen and what not.


24.) 06 Jul 2019 21:22:28
No matter how good a player is, if that player has no desire to play for the club and is a rotten apple.
Let's get loads of money for him reinvest into players who want to play for the club and restore the pride back on the field.

Ed02

I appreciate your a busy man, but if you could reply to the below when you get time it will be much appreciated.

Do you think that if utd lose to liverpool the club will decide to move ole on?

I'm not sure they will sack him but maybe he will get told to walk away or move onto another role?

Surely the glazers must be having a look at the football decisions and are starting to get concerned or are they completely out of the football decisions picture?

BIG V

{Ed002's Note - I have explained that the club will be reluctant to make the decision to sack the coach - but they should - and he should never have been appointed in the first place. Why bring up the Glazers?}


1.) 07 Oct 2019 15:09:43
I don't think the glazers are as hands on as let's say Abramovich when it comes to stuff like that Big v

They just own the club they don't really give a monkey's as long as the money is still coming in.

It's a business for them where as to us fans it's more.

Think that's where most of us are confused as to why the glazers have aloud this shambles to carry on for the past 7 years.


2.) 07 Oct 2019 16:23:31
Bolger they are business men revenues are up. they don't have a problem until they decline significantly for a sustained period. Simple. The glazers don't have any problem at all.


3.) 07 Oct 2019 17:00:16
Would love to know who actually makes all the decisions? Have they got the football side or the commercial side as the first thought?


4.) 07 Oct 2019 18:43:08
Hey ed02

Thank for the response, I brought up the glazers as I wanted to know if they ever make any footballing decisions as everyone seems to think they have no involvement.

I think all the fans just want some clarity on who is making these decisions along with ed Woodward in picking the wrong managers and not having a clear plan for the club footballing wise.

{Ed002's Note - The owners do not make decisions about footballing matters.}


5.) 07 Oct 2019 18:49:50
Good thing or bad thing ken? They've also released over 900m in recent years to invest in the squad.


6.) 07 Oct 2019 19:04:24
How generous of them angel.

They’ve also take close to £900m out of the club to service the debt they loaded the club with when they used a leveraged buyout to purchase it, and the club still has over £500m in gross debt.


7.) 07 Oct 2019 19:52:16
How can the owners of a football club not make football decisions If you own a business you get involved in all aspects.

{Ed002's Note - So you want people who know little about the making transfer policy?}


8.) 07 Oct 2019 20:37:32
How long have they been owners? Why has one of them not got more.


9.) 07 Oct 2019 21:16:12
Why when they said they would appoint a manager at the end of the season did they rush to appoint him as manager.
Because everyone press and fans wanted him as manager, everyone pushed them to do it and they did.


10.) 07 Oct 2019 20:45:09
No Ed, I want owners who get involved in the business, they must bloody know it takes success on the pitch to earn money. Sponsors will come and go depending on the success of the football side of things. It's not hard to understand.

{Ed002's Note - You don’t seem to understand how any of it works.}


11.) 07 Oct 2019 21:51:08
Again i have to say why should they get involved in the footballing side. They know nothing about it. They don't need to. Its been a fantastic piece of business by them financially. Its been a cash cow. They have no financial risk or scouse at this stage.
Im sure they will react when and on mutt if there is a sustained drop in revenue.
I don't see why people get upset about them. Its an investment they don't have 1% of the passion for the club as the average united supporter.
Those that question their methods and the way they leveraged the club without using any of their own money etc etc may well be angry but looking at it from a purely financial and business perspective they have pulled of an unbelievable deal and those that call them idiots or whatever i think its unfair. They are no idiots and they know exactly what they are doing. They just don't necessarily want the same things and have slightly different objectives to the supporters.
If they are so thick then go out and try and make the money they are making.
Im sure they recognise that in order to maximise their returns they know the club has to be challeging so if results continue they will get twitchy.
Money makers not necessarily trophy collectors. So i'd say they think they are doing a great job.


12.) 07 Oct 2019 22:12:58
I understand that fans get so upset them because they see them just taking money out. But have they not had a big hand in the growth of the club's commercial arm?

We are now worth something like 2 billion and they have never been shy at reinvesting money back into the team. we are a commercial animal and when they sell, will we not be in a better financial situation?

Those that run the footballing side of the club However, are the ones who have a lot to answer for.

Glazers will step on once profit goes down.


13.) 08 Oct 2019 07:23:24
Agree with Angelred.
The amateur decision makers are the ones that needs to be removed.
The structure of the club needs to be addressed first.


14.) 08 Oct 2019 10:51:18
Ed,

From my understanding, it seems the glazers obviously don’t look at the day to running of the club and leave most of the work for Woodward to do. Maybe most of the decisions related to football are also executed by him, but surely they must be able to see that they need an experienced individual to manage the football aspect of the club, and let Woodward handle the business aspect of it.
Do they not understand this?

{Ed002's Note - Your understanding is far from correct. Just move on.}


 

 

22 Sep 2019 20:52:54
As we all could see we was flat all over the pitch in that match.

We are all aware we are in need off players and I'm sure the more sensible supporters know the problem is deeper than Ole although I do feel today he got it wrong and he will learn from it.

I have been told by someone in the know that there is a problem that is stemming from the players towards ed Woodward and the board, there issue does not sit with the manager but he is going to be right in the middle of it as players have refused to play due to this.

Apparently it all stems from ed trying to push players out the door in the summer and a lot of broken promises about bringing a certain player to old Trafford. who the player is I was not told.

As always I don't know how true this is but the person is normally not far off with his information.

BIG V

1.) 22 Sep 2019 22:53:58
Pogba wanted to leave in the summer and for some reason instead of replacing him and getting rid we decided to keep him, it makes no sense to me, maybe they thought some fans would backlash. He doesn’t want to play for us and I wouldn’t be surprised if he wasn’t that injured.


 

 

21 Sep 2019 12:01:25
I think tomorrow will either be a 0-1 to ourselves or 2-3 depending on how the first 30 minutes go, if west hame score then we won't try and keep it so tight at the back.


Can not really see west ham winning.

Would like Tunazebe to be given a chance next to Maguire just to give lindelof a break as he has not been playing to well that being said he has not been awful and i still rate him highly.

I would like to see Fred mctominay and gomes or Pereira in attacking mid position although I do feel it will be lingard in there.

Then James, rashford and Greenwood as the 3 at the front.

I'm sure a lot of you won't agree with this.

BIG V

1.) 21 Sep 2019 12:05:29
Wont happen anyway big v ole said as much. Players will come back today them the young lads will play v Rotherham in midweek.


2.) 21 Sep 2019 12:24:16
I think Greenwood may well start, with Fred/ McTominay/ Perreira as the center three. I also think Rojo may get a look in at left back after his performance, he was all smiles when he came off. Do agree with Ken that Gomes will likely have to wait till Rochdale. If James isn't fit, I can see Rashford out left with Lingard or Perreira on the right.


3.) 21 Sep 2019 14:31:20
Agree with all but Pereira. I don't think he's good enough. Can see it being a different team though and those played Thursday instead playing against Rotherham.


4.) 22 Sep 2019 09:31:01
Is this Rotherham game another 'behind closed doors' thing, strange what with the Rochdale game on Wednesday.


 

 

16 Sep 2019 09:34:55
The performance against Leicester was poor and I think everyone agrees with that.

The difference is that the team are working hard and keep going, The quality will come in time and with some additional players that fit the mould of our club.

Our squad has been stripped down to bare bones and I suspect it will be the same next summer.

The club is trying to oversee a complete reset, so I wouldn't expect much to happen in January either apart from a few players leaving.

I will back ole until the end, I do think he has been brought in with a clear out the rubbish and reset the team spirit and work ethic.

BIG V

1.) 16 Sep 2019 10:13:44
I think next two transfer windows will provide a clear indication of where the club is moving . I think if we can add 4 quality first teamers in the next two transfer windows we will be a very good team next season. Four good purchases and about four youngsters getting into the first team and performing as expected will help us have a very good squad.


2.) 16 Sep 2019 10:48:10
If the team are working hard and keeping going and also winning games are you sure we are all in agreement that we were poor on Saturday?

Leicester are a good side and will cause many teams problems this season, to keep a clean sheet and see the game out how we did was quite impressive really. McTominay certainly wasn’t poor, fantastic performance from the kid.


3.) 16 Sep 2019 11:49:55
It was a much needed victory considering the injuries of 4 first teamers.


4.) 16 Sep 2019 12:46:31
That's the thing with this season. We played better against Wolves and drew. We were poor against Palace who got humped by spurs. City lost to Norwich. Its one of those things. We lack quality but as long as we keep trying and cut down on individual errors we'll be fine. Just need to add more quality.


5.) 16 Sep 2019 13:37:21
I'm hoping we don't get carried away in the transfer window and start making ridiculous offers to average players.

If the correct players are not available then we should just carry on with what we have got, one thing for sure under ole there will be no lazy signings.


6.) 16 Sep 2019 14:00:16
It was workmanlike. Loved it to be honest. I'd like to see that midfield trio again and either keep pogba out of the lineup or pushed further as he can't be relied upon as a CM.

Hopefully we can build on this again and get some decent wins together.


7.) 16 Sep 2019 14:49:51
Funny but winning workmanlike performances under Mourinho were heavily criticised.


8.) 16 Sep 2019 16:07:07
Because it was the norm.


9.) 16 Sep 2019 13:37:39
The most interesting thing about the Leicester game was the questions it raised about Pogba.

Matic is coming to the end of his top level career, but a midfield of him and McTom provided a more stable platform that kept possession, and mistakes to a minimum.

On the other hand, we created almost nothing from open play.

I know that people think playing Pogba in the number 10 role would solve this, but I don’t think he gives or offers enough in that role - he tends to be sucked back to the centre, leaving the striker isolated.

Imagine if we had sold Pogba this summer, and brought in SMS and Fernandes? That would be a midfield.

Sms and Bruno wouldve been a top combo.

Reading this thread shows that everyone sees what they want to see. Big V mate, not everyone, just some. Redman, you’re moving the goalposts now, you said it was a must win game, you didn’t mention entertainment.

Before the game people were saying they had better players, blah blah blah. They looked ordinary to me buy maybe that’s how we played. I didn’t find it particularly pretty but I love that McT completely bossed Maddison and that Maguire shoved the Leicester boos down their throats.


12.) 16 Sep 2019 19:43:02
to be fair ajh in a few positions they do have better players i think that's fair.
But we out fought them we chased and harried even periera did well with that part if his game i think they all did actually.
Ok so we didn't create 1 shot on target from open play or hardly an attempt but the players were obviously trying their best. That bodes well. Creating chances is difficult when you don't control the ball and tempo our midfield is sadly lacking so we will have to play like that all season there is no reason why they can't and no reason to think they won't improve as they go.
Ole does need a little run of wins to get some momentum going.


13.) 16 Sep 2019 21:11:50
Ken, right now apart from City and Liverpool I think there a lot of evenly matched teams, this is the year to give some youngsters game time, the results have been a bit mad so far, I’d hate to predict any scores right now.


14.) 16 Sep 2019 23:29:48
Yeah bookies loving it. Freak results wolves in bottom 3 its been a weird start for all apart from Liverpool. The teams that find some consistency over the next 10 games can take advantage.


15.) 17 Sep 2019 05:37:18
Leicester have some serious quality players with them.
Players like Ndidi, Telimens, Maddison and Chilwell will walk into our team.

After the 3 winless games, this victory was essential for the team's confidence.


16.) 17 Sep 2019 07:06:40
AJH

Not moving any goalposts. It was a must win game and we won it, about which I am happy. However people were pointing out the game as something good yet used that same trait against the previous manager.

Nou

You say it was the norm under the previous manager, however is that 4 wins in 18 for Ole, I don’t see that as the norm either.


17.) 17 Sep 2019 08:08:38
7 wins from 17 for Jose before he was sacked, maybe it is the norm after all.


18.) 17 Sep 2019 09:23:31
Nou

If Jose was sacked with a better record than Ole, why is OGS still here? Sentiment.


19.) 17 Sep 2019 11:01:03
I don't understand the logic of comparing a new campaign with the last 10 games of previous season.
How about the run of 12 wins from 14 matches?

Half of the squad is different now.
Starters like Lukaku, Sanchez, Smalling are shipped out.
Young, Matic aren't guaranteed starters.


20.) 17 Sep 2019 11:44:31
Danny - SMS and Bruno would have been a really nice combination in midfield. Bruno further forward and sms deeper with mctominay. We missed a trick there.


21.) 17 Sep 2019 11:51:39
TRD

You have to look at the permanent record separate from the temporary one. Easy to come in and be nice but that changes on permanency. You look at the managers previous record and have to be aware of whether history is repeating itself. People would have judged LvG or Mourinho in that way so OGS must also be.


22.) 17 Sep 2019 12:12:05
Red Man. Look at the injuries the team suffered during the temporary and permanent reign.
Moreover, everyone knows that the board has left Ole handicapped with their immature handling of transfers.


23.) 17 Sep 2019 15:16:43
TRD

Ole handicapped by transfers? Then why declare he was happy.

So it’s injuries that saw us stuffed at Everton and losing the last two games of the season against who? . Injuries at home to Palace a couple of weeks ago as well? Or Wolves away where he didn’t bring a striker on til too late?

Ole hasn’t shown he can get a team to play good football or win at the level we are at.


24.) 17 Sep 2019 17:45:26
So you want him to mourn about it and spread a toxic environment around the squad? lol.
That's one of the reason his predecessor got sacked.


25.) 17 Sep 2019 18:29:11
Redman you can't expect ole to go down the toys out of the pram route jose went down. It didn't work for jose it won't work for ole. Its not in his nature to be like that. It was in joses.
This squad under ole can make top 4 then build from there. If he fails to deliver he will be fired i expect. But there is no reason why we can't get top 4 and win a cup. That constitutes good progress from last season. If he fails to do either of those and the team are not progressing under him he will be relieved if his post.


26.) 18 Sep 2019 08:49:45
Ken,

I agree to a certain extent, still think Christmas will be a review time. I don’t want Ole to fail but believe it is too big a job and top four is a big ask. If he gets top four wins a cup I will hold my hands up.


27.) 18 Sep 2019 12:00:05
It's a progression, I for 1 like the direction we have taken.


28.) 18 Sep 2019 14:49:34
I agree on part jred.
It's very high risk leaving the midfield and attack as light as we have. But if we do get top 4 and can address them better next year then it will have proven to be a risk with taking.

I do think liverpool have there best chance at the title this year and as much as it pains me to say it I do think they will do it.

Also think Chelsea are much better than people think, they are not far off from the title either.

My top 6 prediction.

Liverpool
Man city
Chelsea
Tottenham
Man utd
Arsenal

I hope I am wrong but that's how I set it.

Please ole prove me wrong.

You’ll be wrong Big V.


2.) 15 Sep 2019 23:15:43
Liverpool have made the league their number one target and I think this season will probably win it by four or five points. If Arsenal gdt Holding fit and playing then I think they will push Chelsea and Spurs for third and fourth places. We are progressing but our midfield is far too weak and we are a bit light attack wise to get top four this year.


3.) 16 Sep 2019 05:52:54
Arsenal's centre backs are shocking and their midfield lacks bite.
However, their front line can amazing.
Chelsea will get a boost from CHO when he returns, but not sure if their youngsters can perform consistently.
Liverpool may struggle if Mane or Salah get injured.


4.) 18 Sep 2019 19:34:01
Let‘s see what transpires with Mane.
He seems to be picking fight with his partners in crime in attack. Could easily derail them over time.

I would not be surprised if they are selling to family? Maybe someone wants more power?

I asked my self the same question, but then I thought they will be desperate and probably pick the wrong deal.

I'm not sure if he has the ability to make any sort of impact in the premiership.

I like Bergwijn because he is flexible across the front 3, I think he would be ideal for our squad. Have watched him a lot he will need time to settle though.

I just hope we sign him.

Hey ed02

Thank for the response, I brought up the glazers as I wanted to know if they ever make any footballing decisions as everyone seems to think they have no involvement.

I think all the fans just want some clarity on who is making these decisions along with ed Woodward in picking the wrong managers and not having a clear plan for the club footballing wise.

I'm hoping we don't get carried away in the transfer window and start making ridiculous offers to average players.

If the correct players are not available then we should just carry on with what we have got, one thing for sure under ole there will be no lazy signings.

Yes I agree, he had the injury setback too, I always remember him getting applauded at old Trafford for just being that good.

Haha don't worry about it, I'm sure all the Ed's hate the deadline day every year and some regulars too.

I'm just looking forward to the season now.

In all seriousness we have fixed defence and will be relying on youth witch I don't mind as I hate the mercenaries.
