People say Cavani will score goals. Playing where ? As things stands our trident up front is untouchable, there is no place uo to debate.
Unless you give up on martial is not a good move. With 10 millions to his manager, a big sighning on fee and big wages the expectations are to start games. So he will start in expense of who ?


1.) 04 Oct 2020 03:06:14
The phrase it’s a squad game springs to mind.

2.) 04 Oct 2020 04:11:06
Herrera, if that is how things worked, Ole wouldn't have played 1 game for United as he was also mostly used as a sub.

There should be no untouchables in the team no matter who you are as that creates complacency and your performance level drops.
Cavani will be here for short term and will create that competitive atmosphere and will keep Martial on his toes. Martial last scored in the QF against LASK and yet he plays every game.

Cavani as i read will be on lesser wages than Sancho would have been plus no 110m to Dortmund so i don't see that as too much of an issue.

I still feel we will get Telles with Dalot gone now. Sancho, i don't know but i do think a winger might come, Sarr may be.

3.) 04 Oct 2020 04:56:03
You do realize that this season is very congested with most weekends and midweek being matchday for 1 comp or other. Also with the little known thing called C.V. players might miss some games due to positive test or quarantine.

Maybe you can take a look at Liverpool right now. They signed Jota to be a backup. Right now Sadio Mane is out with C. V. So while Mane is self isolating, Jota willm fill in for him.

Also we didn't have a single forward on the sub bench against Brighton in the PL.

If there has ever been a season when having a good option to cover, its this season. No matter who we see as first choice, the chances are they will miss a few games due to one factor or another.

4.) 04 Oct 2020 07:00:43
Cavani probably = Sanchez Mk2.

5.) 04 Oct 2020 07:14:34
I think he will rotate with the other 3.

6.) 04 Oct 2020 07:45:10
Sanchez never wanted to come to United in the first place so i don't see how it could be similar.

7.) 04 Oct 2020 08:06:05
Disagree. We desperately needed a centre forward to:

A) put pressure on Martial, who sometimes plays as if he has no competition for his place.

B) fill in for Martial, especially with the upcoming Tues/ Weds/ Sat/ Sun set of fixtures. Ighalo couldn’t have done this well enough.

C) be on the bench for when we need a plan B.

D) show our three excellent young forwards how to score ‘scruffy’ goals.

Cavani will do all four far, far better than Ighalo. For a combined 25 (ish) million over two years inclusive of wages and agent fees.

Absolute no brainer for me.

Now for a RW, LB and CB. 😂.

8.) 04 Oct 2020 08:57:16
We need another forward, we will play around 60 games this season and in a shorter time period than a normal season.

Radical idea: Why don’t we wait a few months to see how things pan out rather than doom Cavani to failure before he’s even signed a contract.

9.) 04 Oct 2020 10:10:32
I like Cavani, he'll provide different options for the squad across the front. Rashford and Greenwood can all play on the right. Why not for a season or two. Sancho is an excellent player but I'd much prefer to see a decent centre back brought in with some of the money that would of been spent on him.

Separate issue here, but does anybody think Wan Bissaka could possibly play in the centre back position? I'm not saying he should or shouldn't, I'm just wondering what other, more knowledgeable posters think.

Have a great weekend everyone, fingers crossed for three points today.

10.) 04 Oct 2020 11:19:31
Martial is nowhere near consistent enough to be leading the line for Manchester United. Even if it's for one or two seasons Cavani could have an impact similar to Ibrahimovic, which although did have injured spells was still a decent period for the club. I'm in!

11.) 04 Oct 2020 11:25:49
If he can stay for, its an astute signing. Classy, winner, worker, professiona, he could have an impact.

12.) 04 Oct 2020 12:00:18
The question for me is why did they wait until now to get Cavani? He has been available for months, why didn’t we get him at the beginning of the season? Have they suddenly realised Martial is inconsistent and Ighalo is someone who really wasn’t good enough for the Premier League?

I think Cavani is a useful addition if he stays fit, we needed a striker, but it doesn’t look part of a plan. Personally I would have gone for Jovic at Madrid. Let’s see how Cavani does, but what plan was it part of?

13.) 04 Oct 2020 12:43:40
Herrera iur front 3 can't start every game. Assuming they start 30 league games each which would be a first for any of them then cavaini has 24 starts. It makes sense to me. i'd rather have cavaini starting those 24 than lingard or james but that's just me.
We need strength in depth up there and we get it and you are unhappy?
Could be a very astute signing. We are desperately short of experience consistency and know how in our front line.
A bit like if we had signed grealish i'm hopeful but not over expectant.

14.) 04 Oct 2020 13:31:52
Ken if its 40+ millions for two years for a squad player with injuries problems that's a problem. 10 millions a year to player, 10 to manager and 10 sighning on fee maybe.

I want options upfront because it is a squad game but i would prefer someone cheaper and a lot younger with legs who can understand his squad role better than Cavani. And if i would buy an older it would be Zirou to have a different option because his hold up play is excellent.

Its not like we buyed a class player who is technically excellent and its not a problem if he legs has gone because he has other attributes. Cavani did use his legs, his strength was his legs, his runs. He was never was excellent finisher, he was never was excellent with the ball and he was never was technically excellent.

He scored a lot because he run a lot, have a decent finishing (usually) and involved in many chances) . So if his legs have gone he is half the player he was because psishicallity was his numper one strength. This and the fact that with the money involved he must play no matter how bad he is, he is a risk not worth taking.

15.) 04 Oct 2020 14:06:33
I think we can all agree that we shouldn’t be too concerned about the exact financial details as both - we don’t know them exactly (at least till next financial reports) and we don’t really know if it really hurts us that much financially

From a football player perspective, it looks like your assessment is off in terms not being a good finisher and only about running. Like many have said, waiting all summer to do this (Cavani reduced his demand too now) seems desperate but also - would we rather not have him now in the position we are in today? If the club does sign him, I hope we can give the player a chance before writing him off.

16.) 04 Oct 2020 14:56:08
Have his legs gone?

17.) 04 Oct 2020 15:52:56

Don’t think so, 3 seasons ago he scored 49 goals in all competitions, just had a few injuries last season, PSG fans wanted him to stay from what I’ve read, works hard for the team and scored goals.

18.) 04 Oct 2020 16:23:29
One season ago Sanchez was one of the best players in Premier League too. But in some cases especially at 30 the downfall is a matter of 2-3 injuries. Our own Giggs would never have played until 40 so well if he had injuries problems at 32-33.
People say he only had injurie problems the previous two season like it is a coincidence. The truth is that for because he is the wrong side of 30 the injuries started for good.

19.) 04 Oct 2020 17:57:16

Terrible example, Giggs had a lot of injuries at 32-33.

20.) 05 Oct 2020 10:45:14
Cavani is a good signing. Ighalo isn't good enough and he goes in January and he poses no threat to Martial's position. It may give Martial a kick up the arse now his position is properly under threat.

21.) 05 Oct 2020 22:22:17
Whatever Manchester United’s transfer strategy was this summer, it didn’t involve signing a 33-year-old free agent at the last minute.

22.) 05 Oct 2020 22:23:25
Untouchable? They struggled to score against Palace. They won't get a sniff today either, hardly untouchable.



13 Apr 2020 14:24:28
Hi Ed002. In another page you said that Madrid will likely bid for Haaland. Do we still have interest in player ? And although i don't believe it, has Raiola put a release clause of 75 million in his contract ?


{Ed002's Note - There is no chance of him moving to Manchester United I am afraid. I am not sure why yoo mention a release clause.}

1.) 13 Apr 2020 15:25:27
I guess it was my fault Ed002 i asked about a release clause. Thanks for quick response.

Hi Ed001, hope you are well, Merry Christmas !! I was watching Wolves last night and i was really impressed with Podence especially when he was centrally. Fantastic little player who makes the team tick, good control and good at tight areas , i would say he was similar to our own Mata a little bit but with more pace and tricks. what's your opinion on him ?


{Ed001's Note - excellent little player but a little prone to playing with his head down at times. If he could learn to assess his options and pick the right one more often, he would be frighteningly good.}

1.) 28 Dec 2020 22:53:14
Thank you Ed001. Have a happy and healthy new year!

{Ed001's Note - you too mate, hope 2021 is a good one for you.}

2.) 29 Dec 2020 01:30:49
He was megging people for fun last night, great to see as a fan but needs to add more of an end product after he’s done it, megging people in an empty stadium and passing it for a throw in isn’t great but the talent is clearly there, cracking player in there somewhere.

3.) 29 Dec 2020 06:31:55
Podence was the player I picked out when Shappy did a post about players who had impressed. Look forward to seeing him when they play us.

4.) 29 Dec 2020 08:39:09
Kind of like an eden hazard regen.

5.) 29 Dec 2020 12:10:41
Herrera I made the same comparison between Podence and Mata yesterday. He’s a tidy little player. I’ve been really impressed with him and Neto this season.

Looking forward to tonight’s game.

6.) 29 Dec 2020 12:37:33
Podence is a lot quicker than mata but I see some similarities.

7.) 29 Dec 2020 12:51:31
Does Podence play on the right or on the left? I know Adama Traits has lost out the starting place on the wings to Neto and Podence but I am not sure which one of them plays where.

8.) 29 Dec 2020 14:25:50
Podance is a very good player, much quicker than Mata, but I see the technical ability as being the reason for the comparison.

Typically he plays on the RW and has to an extent pushed Traore out of the side, to the extent that Traore has been played at wing back a few times as that was his only way into the team. Personally I think Traore could be better suited to a wing back role, physically strong enough to be a good defender if coached well. But lacks a little in forward areas to truly be a forward for a top side. He reminds me a lot of Antonio Valencia. Pace and power, but inconsistent end product.

Podance is a far more technical and intelligent player. My gut instinct is that Neto long term will be the better player, but we could do a lot worse than signing Podance for the RW spot.

9.) 29 Dec 2020 14:35:23
Yes Wazza, it looked like a quicker Mata. Or maybe more of a David Silva because although his stats aren't good he makes his team tick. Good in tight areas and always moves to become a choice for his team mates.
Deependra they played all of them against Spurs. Podence plays everywhere behind the striker, mostly left winger or thought the middle.

10.) 29 Dec 2020 15:13:53
I agree with Shappy, typically he is a right winger, i think that was his position at Olympiakos. But he impressed me mainly when he was centrally because he made his team tick like David Silva.

11.) 29 Dec 2020 15:15:41
As you are discussing who you would like to sign from my team I am going to tell Uncle Jorge Mendes to have a word with Bruno Fernandes. We could do with a couple of goal scorers while we wait on the recovery of Raul so at the same time Uncle Jorge will have a word with that Cavani, Rashford and Greenwood.

12.) 29 Dec 2020 15:38:41
Your uncle can't help you mate because our players are too expensive. I think your team making a fantastic job buying good Portuguese players for good prices. You have 4-5 players that could walk in most teams. Have a nice match GTW.



02 Nov 2020 09:38:01
Today started again the conversation about Adidas buying Pogba for us etc. Some people says that he plays because Adidas brought him to us , that Mourinho didn't want him back then at 2016 and its all about marketing.

I rubbishd this , i don't think a company like Adidas would give 100-150 millions for a player, i don't think they would make profit and i don't even know if its legal to buy us a player. I think its not working like that.

I would like to know your opinion, is it possible to be true ? And theoritically if Adidas brought him to us, is it possible for Adidas to make profit after giving 150 millions to buy the player ? Thanks in regards


1.) 02 Nov 2020 09:58:11
Manchester United bought pogba for Manchester United. Nobody else.

2.) 02 Nov 2020 10:33:34
Yes adidas a company like most others which seeks to keep its costs at an absolute minimum so much so most of their trainers and clothes are made in asia by people earning a fraction of the minimum wage in the developed western hemisphere would fund a speculative transfer from juventus to manchester united.

Its not like pogba was not a lucrative marketing asset at juventus, they're one of the biggest clubs in italy lol.



22 Oct 2020 23:42:51
is it a possibility of Luis Campos coming to our club as sporting director?


1.) 23 Oct 2020 09:24:38
Possible yes, probable no!

2.) 23 Oct 2020 13:34:19
Lol ExFZZ. I agree probable not. I didn't know he wasnt at Lille any more, i read about this only 2 days before, that's the reason i asked.



21 Oct 2020 00:07:18
Great result, something i expected, this team is better in these kind of games .
De Gea was world class today.
Bissaka dominated everyone with his accurate tacklings but he must be more careful inside our box because he is usually one touch away from conceding a penalty.
Telles was good in his first appearance, a smart guy, i think not world class defencively although solid but great going forward. He has a nice touch of the ball and good crosses. It was the first time i have seen 3-4 very good corners in a row for a long long time.
Our central defenders were superb, very smart, helping and covering each other and Tuanzebe showed us the reason many said that he is a big talent. It was his first start for a long time but still he was very calm, assured and "matched" Empampe in one to one.
I think it was Fred's best game for us, the work rate is there every time he plays but today the difference is that he was more sure with the ball making less mistakes covering a lot of ground and especially making an extra touch (when needed) in order to break their press.
Mactominay was one of the best. Hard working, good passes, pressed, closing down and leading action all over the place. Althought he had a yellow card early on he never was in danger of conceding a second yellow.
Bruno was (along with Mactominay) a great leader, good passes, good when pressed, holds the ball (very important when you play with 5 at the back) , pressed a lot, worked his schocks off and never hidded.
I know you won't like this but the front two were our problem today. They didn't run and press a lot. Awful decision making. During the match i was thinking that (althought he is not my cup of tea) with Kavani upfront we would score 4-5 goals.
The star today was Ole. He made the right decisions pre match and during the match, when Pari get tired, changed Telles with Pogba so we played with a diamond and took again the control of the game-after a short spell they dominated us. Credit where is due.


1.) 21 Oct 2020 01:25:24
I've got no problem with our front two today. Some mistakes, yes, but Marcus Rashford scored when it mattered.



18 Oct 2020 11:01:32
That was our best performance for a long long time. Full of energy , a dominant performance. Best Brunos performance for a long time too, Mata helped him because they are on the same book. Mactominay and Bruno were our best players, so sharp , hard working and with good mind too. I am happy with the performance


1.) 18 Oct 2020 12:47:46
Was I watching a different game? We were awful until the two subs came on.

2.) 18 Oct 2020 13:06:04
Maybe you watched a different game Red Man or your expectations were too high.

3.) 18 Oct 2020 13:25:07
I agree red man. We were chronic until the subs.

4.) 18 Oct 2020 13:48:54
Agree Redman game changed when Fred went off. i'm sorry but he can’t pass water.

5.) 18 Oct 2020 14:37:20
We have won matches playing worst during the unbeaten run. Far worst i would say. Yesterday in the first half they passed the centre 3-4 times because we were dominant. that's the kind of reaction i want to see.
Is it a compination of us playing good and them being below average? I would say yes ofcourse but credit where is due.

Shappy i wouldn't say we have two keepers better than Romero. Henderson maybe will become better and i wish he becomes world class. But i don't feel safe with him in goalposts, i felt always safe with Romero, he was always solid.

What about taking 290,000 a week and playing for the club you want Blackpool? Its not like we do him any favour by paying him 290,000 a week. He can find a good salary in another team too.

He didn't reclined with Zose. With Zose at 17-18 he had of his most successful years with us conceding 17 goals less than we should consede as per expected goals against. Then he went with his national team for the tournament, made mistakes and his confidence was low. Then it was Zoses third season syndrome and we had a toxic atmosphere and we conceded goals with all ways, none was marking decent and the fact that he conceded a lot of goals don't help the confidence. Then Ole asked him to play the ball from the back and things got worst.

I agree with Shappy, i would prefer Stefanovic because looks the better player and plays at left. Although i am not so sure Pellistris long term position would be rw. I think he is a player that wants to cut inside based from what i have seen at youtube and yesterday at under 23 in first half. I think he will become a Messi type lefr winger.

Pogba hurts his career. He should ask a transfer request to force a move away. No point hold a player who doesn't want to be here, again no point for him staying in a place doesn't want to. Its a lose-lose so i can't understand why they don't sit down to find a solution.

The matches are there. We have scored 0 open play goals in 5 matches against big 6. So we show them much respect (or we can't do better) .
Ofcourse i don't entertain seeing us playing so safe but i don't complain because, at least, what we do we do it perfect from a defensive view. Even Mourinho couldn't defend so deep without conceding clear chances. You make it better, Chelsea didn't had a clear chance, City i don't think they had clear chances, Arsenal certainly not and Liverpool not. Except Tottenham which was a day off we did extremely well defensively against all others.

If we had 1-2 more days to prepare then fine. But i don't knoq if its good for them either, Liverpool wasnt much sharp and it isn't coincidence that when they a lot of days (like when national teams play) they don't play well.

We have 36 points from 17 matches, that's 2,1 per game and if we continue with the same form we will go at 80 points which is not too much. Even Leicester collected 81. At the other hand we will go from 66 points to 80 and that's progress.
I don't think we are that good, in every country the favourites have problems and that's a chance for underdogs to take something. In any other year the league leader would have 42-45 points and we would have no chance.

I don't think its governments full responsibility. Incomes of government is taxes. And, althought its not as simple, taxes are supposed to be reciprocal. Although i don't defend governments maybe its not as easy to feed so much childrens without cut money for example from health etc.

And that's the reason he is selfish in the pitch 007. No matter how rubbish is or not, scoring goals means he will always be in tabloids and the fans will give us useless statistics with reasons why he is a very good player and he is better than Ronaldo in his first 100 matches etc.
I don't say he is not talented, he is. But his head has turned and he is trying to become something else from what he really is. He is like Pogba, when he is not so obsessed for moments of magic spectacular goals and Hollywood passes and play for his team, he is a very good player.
