Rumours circulating that Henderson wants to leave on loan in January?

What to do with him?


1.) 22 Sep 2021 12:03:42
Let him leave on loan I guess. Maybe a sale with a buy back clause in the summer.

2.) 22 Sep 2021 12:45:36
I like Henderson and until the last few games I would have had him as my number one. If we could get a good fee for him, then I guess we would be silly to not move him on as we wouldn't find it easy to move on De Gea.

Kovar coming through the ranks looks like a decent option for the future as well. Seems Henderson got a set back with C.V. at the worst time, and De Gea has grasped the opportunity with both hands.

3.) 22 Sep 2021 12:54:10
This time last year I thought we needed to give him a proper run as first choice. He just came back from two years of excellent work at Sheffield United. While DDG had been slowly declining over the past two seasons.

Last season saw a but of a mess with neither being really first choice. Ole seemed to stick with DDG even though his performances were getting worse. Then when DDG left mid season to go to Spain for the birth of his first child Henderson was given a run out. He did okay, well in some games but he did have a bit of a nightmare against Liverpool. Then when DDG returned there was no clear first choice and both players form suffered.

Supposedly Henderson was told over the summer he'd be first choice this year. Unfortunately an untimely injury followed by catching C.V. and suffering with that for a few weeks meant DDG started the season.

This season DDG while maybe not back to his absolute best form, is currently in the best form he has been in for 4 years. He really started to drop off after the 2016 world cup when he received huge backlash for a few mistakes for Spain.

With his current form he doesn't deserve to be dropped and that puts Henderson in a tricky spot. He can't afford to sit on the bench, he has ambitions of his own. Particularly looking at the World cup with England. He needs a loan in January or a permanent move. I think it would be a huge mistake to sell him without a reasonable buyback clause as I'm unsure how long this DDG renascence will last, and I rate Henderson highly.

I said during the summer we can't afford to have another season of indecisiveness in our goalkeeping position. Bad luck for Henderson and hard work from DDG seems to have turned the pendulum in the Spaniards favour.

Now we need to find a solution for Henderson.

4.) 22 Sep 2021 13:43:26
I never heard one saying Henderson would be no 1
I never heard Henderson say it
I never heard ddg say he was no2
I often remember someone on here scolding and laughing at people who believe every bit of click bait they read.
Henderson was never told he would be no1 or he would have been reinstated to no1 when fit unless one is a complete liar and leading a squad member up the garden path.
So don't believe the click bait just to convince yourself your right.

5.) 22 Sep 2021 14:29:04
I never said it wasn't click bait or anything else. In fact I said "supposedly" indicating the vicarious nature of any such reports.

Henderson himself has said previously that he wants to play, and if that isn't going to be here then he will move elsewhere. That fact that he apparently made no attempt to move this summer suggests he either lied previously or at least thought he would get at least a chance this season.

Again supposedly he is now looking for a loan move in January. Which if true suggests that he feels differently about the chances he will get this season now than he did in the summer.

6.) 22 Sep 2021 15:59:59
I suppose you mean he started to drop off after 2018. Because at 17-18 season with Mourinho he was magnificent.

7.) 22 Sep 2021 16:33:08
Unless OGS wants to go in a different direction I think DDG has put this debate to bed with his performance and link with the defence. He has shown a more agressive nature that was one of the advantages that Henderson had over him.
Assuming this continues over the next couple of months the club should work on getting Henderson a loan in January with a view that this leads to us selling him in the summer.
This move along with a number of other decisions on players needs to be made to bring in the final pieces that will take the team to the next level (What we do in midfield and is WanBisaka what we need at RB) .

8.) 22 Sep 2021 17:28:02
David de gea is our number 1. Fully deserving of it. We've let go of better keepers than Henderson. Ben foster, Sam Johnstone etc.

9.) 22 Sep 2021 17:48:10
Herrera, yeah I meant 2018. typo.

10.) 22 Sep 2021 18:41:31
Shappy is correct Ken, around 4 weeks ago on the M. E. N. podcast Samuel Luckhurst said "he knows" Ole told Henderson in the summer he would be starting this season as no 1.then he got sick. If the podcasts are available to download you can hear what he said.

Who knows if its true but I lean towards beleiving it.

11.) 22 Sep 2021 19:53:15
Samuel lockhurst never makes things up of course how long was he with news of the world or the sun?
So is one that fickle that he will go back on his word after 5 games?
If that is the case Henderson should leave as he can't trust the manager.

12.) 22 Sep 2021 21:42:54
So if it was you then Ken, and you had said to Henderson he'd be first choice then the injury and sickness happens and DDG plays the way he has you'd still stick by your original decision and drop DDG for Henderson?

Surely a place in the team is earned by form, in his current form it would be harsh to drop DDG.

13.) 22 Sep 2021 21:58:56
Jesus Ken your moaning sod.

14.) 22 Sep 2021 22:00:08
He can go. Never seen anything in him that
Suggests he’ll be a Utd No1.

15.) 23 Sep 2021 09:20:01
Fans are a fickle bunch. A slight upturn in form for one of our GKs and an untimely bout of a killer C.V. for the other and our minds swing another way yet again.

16.) 23 Sep 2021 11:08:57
Spenno, I'd be more than happy with Henderson as our No.1.

That said I believe a team should be picked on merit. If Fred is our best performing midfielder then he deserves to play, if AWB is out best performing RB then he deserves to play. If Cavani is playing better than Ronaldo then Cavani deserves to start.

I'm a fan of Donny as a footballer. But last season he didn't show enough in the time he was given to deserve to start over our other options. Last night he played well and has started to ask the question about whether he should start.

Henderson's sickness was unfortunate and had he been able to start the season as first choice I don't think there could have been too many complaints. Yet he wasn't.

DDG has started well, made some great and important saves, showed more authority in goal, better distribution and this culminated in a penalty save that won us 3 points instead of just getting 1.

As such it would be harsh and unfair to drop him as it stands. If his form dips again then Henderson should be given a chance.

However, that very much depends on whether Henderson is happy to sit and wait for that chance (which may not come) or whether he wants to go to a side where he can play every week.

17.) 23 Sep 2021 12:39:24
Well Shappy, according to Ole last night, "stats don't mean anything". So what should we base team selections on, haircuts?

18.) 23 Sep 2021 12:59:50
Spenno, stats are only useful in the right context. Both looking at the stats and watching with your own eyes you can see DDG is playing much better this season and doesn't deserve to be dropped.

Like I said I'm a big fan of Henderson and think he has the potential to be out No.1 for the next ten years. I think his style of play is more progressive and what I would like to see from a modern keeper.

Yet DDG is the man with the shirt and until he drops a few clangers and his form drops he doesn't deserve to be thrown out of the side. If good performances are rewarded with more game time then you totally undermine yourself as a manager.

19.) 23 Sep 2021 14:10:00
You undermine yourself as a manager if you tell a player he will be no1 next season like you believe and then don't stand over your word. Is ole really that fickle or brain dead?

20.) 23 Sep 2021 19:31:16
How many goalkeepers move mid season on loan to be no.1 at a top team. Think options might be limited for Dean, Championship club maybe.

21.) 23 Sep 2021 19:57:40
There is a big for sale list I think
Plus some Free’ please take aways.

There is no one above united would miss, none of above are good enough.



24 Aug 2021 21:35:31
Ed002, I know this is nothing to do with United but could Ronaldo possibly go to City in this window?

I don't know how I'd feel about that?


{Ed002's Note - He has been offered to a number clubs in recent days.}

1.) 25 Aug 2021 08:31:17
I'd feel a little sad if he ends up going to City. But for me it won't spoil the player he was for us.

2.) 25 Aug 2021 10:35:31
Ronaldo loves Ronaldo, always has. He would go to Barcelona or City if it suited. No loyalty.

3.) 25 Aug 2021 11:13:30
I’d be disappointed if he went there, but would assume that he’ll only do so if we turn him down first. If that’s the case, we’ll only have ourselves to blame.

4.) 25 Aug 2021 11:55:32
He could be the star player in America and I could see his sponsorship jump ten fold. Go join Inter Mynan with Beckham.

5.) 25 Aug 2021 11:56:39
I'd be delighted to see him in the epl again. I don't care who he plays for. An Ex employee that's all he is.

6.) 25 Aug 2021 12:22:03
Andy Cole and Big Pete went at the end of their careers for a big payday.

See Ronnie go their as the same.

7.) 25 Aug 2021 18:22:34
His loyalty is to himself and his family only. If he wants to go wherever, let him on.

Id like to see him again in the prem.



08 May 2020 15:40:34
Hi ed002, I don't know if this has an answer. Let's say the season starts back and 3 or 4 games are played before the virus makes a comeback. Would the line be drawn across the season from the current point or would the line be drawn from the pre-restart league positions?


{Ed002's Note - There have been no discussions about the options but the proposal from the RFEF is contraversial in that it proposes to reset to the pre-start positions if it subsequently stops.}

1.) 08 May 2020 16:15:23
It's a pretty big call to make considering permutations of the table that could change after a handful of games. Liverpool could be champions only for the table to be reset. Us or Sheffield United could therectically in the top 4.

Just goes to show that it will be impossible to please everyone.



17 Nov 2019 12:52:43
Hi ed002, how's things?

Do we still hold interest in Bruno Fernandes? Seemed like a weird turn of events in the summer regarding him. We put in an insulting offer for the player and then never went back?

We obviously targeted a player for the number 10 role since we spent time chasing Dybala and Eriksson. It's very peculiar that we never revisted Bruno as he would definitely improve our starting 11.

Here's hoping that ship hasn't sailed.


{Ed002's Note - I would doubt Manchester United will be looking at the player again after screwing around in the summer. There is interest from elsewhere and Sporting have financial difficulties - and they may reluctantly sell.}

1.) 17 Nov 2019 15:21:12
Ed any interest in Bale from United?

{Ed002's Note - The situation remains unchanged aside from the loan option that has likely gone. RM will try to include Bale in a deal for Pogba - and if his price fits what MU value him at then something can be done.}

2.) 17 Nov 2019 16:11:41
That's a shame. He's exactly what we need and he is available.

Thanks ed. Enjoy your Sunday night.

3.) 18 Nov 2019 12:07:24
Bale? You'd have thought we would have learned our lesson after Sanchez.

4.) 18 Nov 2019 11:20:27
Okay thanks ed.



29 Aug 2019 10:34:45
Hi ed002. Hope all is well. Are there any of our fringe players attracting any interest from any European teams at the minute?



{Ed002's Note - Smalling is of interest to Roma who are fast running out of options. Pogba is of interest to Real Madrid but they are looking to someone else now. Rojo remains of interest to Fenerbahce and Matteo Darmian to Inter but both look unlikely.}

1.) 29 Aug 2019 13:03:24
Very kind Ed, thank you.

2.) 29 Aug 2019 20:18:42
Inter taking all of our unwanted players.

Very happy to be seeing the backend of this season. The last few months watching this team have been torture. A culmination of neglect and poor decision making would inevitably catch up to us. I suppose this was our medicine we had to take for letting sentimentality take over the club for 3 years. An absolutely appaling season but still only 6 points off how Ole finished in two of his 3 years. This is nearly par for the course for this team so thank God this iteration of Man Utd is over.

Ralf hasn't done a good job at all. It may be that he didn't want to alienate any players in case the new manager wanted them. But it may have been that the head gasket had already blown with this team. I do think however he'll be a huge asset off the field.

Ten Hag has a huge job but he is coming in at a time where the fan base are itching for some passion. There are some great youngsters coming through and he'll a free swing at it next year.

In the background I'm delighted to see staff moving on. Regardless if they left or were pushed it's good to see them go. The whole club has stagnated and along with Ten Hag we need new blood through the club.

It's been tough folks but I can almost guarantee we'll be better next season. All we need is to get some passion back playing for this club and hopwfully the rest will fall into place.


1.) 22 May 2022 21:30:02
Honestly, I think next season will be worse. If most of these players are still playing for United we are well and truly stuffed. Lucky to make top 10, add the glazer problem United are just a dead mess. In 12 months it will be more disappointment and anger towards the players.

2.) 23 May 2022 00:17:46
East stand, I agree. Our form since January has been relegation form. And I can't honestly see ETH being backed properly by the club. Not only in signings, but also getting rid of the rubbish players we have on our books.
I keep saying it, Glazers are at the route of all problems at our club.

3.) 23 May 2022 07:02:12
Yep, comes from them. Back in 2004-05 when they took over we all new this would happen. They were warned not to meddle in Englands crown jewel. well they just let it rot and took its money. Only hope is new owners that actually care, until that happens United are Everton and spurs in the 90s. United are utter crap.



03 Mar 2022 19:07:40
So UEFAs way to combat the Super League is to turn the Champions League into the Super League. Group stage format dropped. One league table with all the teams. Play 5 home and 5 away games and then a possible playoff scenario. That's an extra 6 games in the group stages.

The group stages were already kind of boring. This just seems worse.


1.) 03 Mar 2022 21:19:55
They are killing the UCL.

Taking away goal rule off now this.

Killing it.

2.) 04 Mar 2022 12:24:23
So you play 10 teams from a 32 team league or do you play 5 teams twice from a 32 team league? either way how is it decided which teams you play? How does that create a fair league table in a 32 team league when youve played at most 10 but as little as 5 of teams in the league? How can you realistically suggest the top 6 have earned the right to progress?

3.) 04 Mar 2022 17:21:30
I think it will be 6 groups of 6 and then all the groups are put together, it’s ridiculous and a dreadful idea.

4.) 04 Mar 2022 20:22:42
It's one big table GDS2. 36 teams in one table. Everyone plays 10 games. 5 home and 5 away and a new opponent every game. The top 8 go through to the last 16. 9th to 16th will play 17th to 24th in a two legged game to then play the top 8.

How do you beat the Super League, you make your own one.

5.) 04 Mar 2022 20:23:28
I don't even think uefa knows how it's going to work tbh. They know it needs refreshing, but the proposed format is confusing to fans. They just want more games for more money in their pocket by the sounds of it.

I would be surprised if it ends up exactly how the super league was meant to be by the time it starts.



04 Feb 2022 13:19:25
Noe the window has closed and we know what our squad looks like, what are people's expectations for the rest of the season?


1.) 04 Feb 2022 14:27:01
Barring a spate of injuries, this squad, with this manager, should still be more than capable of getting top 4, Mumbles. Possibly, even 3rd. As good a chance as any in the FA Cup. Toughie in the ECL. We get through that, depending on the draw, who knows? I don't think we'll win it or anything, but I don't think other teams will be in a rush to play us either. We're a dangerous floater ?.

2.) 04 Feb 2022 14:59:34
We have no chance of winning any trophy at the moment not good enough. I don't think we will make fourth and even fifth will be a struggle. Conte will be demanding fourth place from spurs and is a proper manager. Arsenal and West Ham will push hard too for that 4th place. A lot will depend on our manager to get the whole team together and playing with real desire and intensity in all matches. Past evidence is not supporting that they will do so.

3.) 04 Feb 2022 15:06:54
4th is well within our grasp. We have a decent run available to us and I'm sure that we are more than capable with the talent in our squad.

Bet you're great craic at parties Salford.

4.) 04 Feb 2022 15:34:29
We should be able to get 4th, but things don't seem to be going our way off the pitch atm. We have no idea how the squad will react to the whole MG thing. While players like Henderson and Lingard will likely be unhappy that moves away didn't materialise.

As said above a spate of injuries to either ourselves or our rivals could be the deciding factor on who gets 4th and who misses out.

The cups are a large part down to luck. If we get favourable draws, and the rub of the green then we might be able to make a final.

That said in both the UCL and the FA cup there are still at least 3 or 4 teams better than us in those competitions. Which means realistic chances of winning either are slim.

I wonder if we finish 4th and win the FA cup will that change the mind of the people running the club in regards to whether Rangnick should step away from the team or be given a longer contract as the manager.

5.) 04 Feb 2022 16:21:36
Angel red I love parties but just trying to be honest and realistic about our chances.

Our midfield is not good enough to control matches. We need a settled back to use as a platform to attack and so far that's not been in evidence

Pogba back playing well should help offensively although even that's debatable. Bruno has started to play well again and I hope Pogbas return doesn't derail him.

Boro tonight will be champing at the bit to put one over us. Tonight should see how strong Utds mentality is. Cup football is notoriously unpredictable but as long as Utd give their all and show attacking intent that will be a good start for the rest of the season.

6.) 04 Feb 2022 22:54:23
Can I amend that FA Cup comment?

{Ed014's Note - I suggest you amend all of them

7.) 04 Feb 2022 22:01:21
I don't think we finish top 4 this year. I don't think k the manager has the players to play his preferred style. I think we have got by for a few seasons where the talent of individuals has got us through a lot of games with results better than we deserved. I think the EPL is getting stronger and its getting tougher to do that aa regularly.

8.) 04 Feb 2022 23:06:36
Nou I don't think our team are capable of winning an important match even if the other team didn't show up. We are pitiful. And to be honest, the club deserves nothing.



21 Nov 2021 13:16:54
A United manager being sacked is never a good day because it means the club are miles from where they should be, but today is a great day for the club.

Regardless of who the next manager is at least we as fans will get to feel some hope again. All nightmares come to an end. Let's hope we get the next one right.


1.) 21 Nov 2021 13:38:03
Maybe, or maybe we are stuck in a never ending nightmare something akin to Nightmare on Elm Street.

We keep thinking we have woken up, but that is just apart of the nightmare.

I'm hoping that we hire the right man next, but have very little faith they will. Plus even if we do by dumb luck hire a good manager, will the club give that manager the support and not undermine them?

Ain't no hope like a fools hope.

2.) 21 Nov 2021 13:53:56

They might not get it right but let’s be honest, nobody they get will be as bad as Ole was at the end.

3.) 21 Nov 2021 13:56:31
Honest question - Does anyone actually believe we are in a better situation this morning than we were yesterday?! I think things are going to get even worse. They’ve sacked Ole but kept his coaches how does it any make sense?!

4.) 21 Nov 2021 14:01:06
Sky are suggesting Poch is the preferred choice. Not sure how that works.

5.) 21 Nov 2021 14:11:05
We are in a better situation today DLIB because we've gotten rid of the main reason the squad were playing woeful football. Carrick may not be up to the task but he won't be in charge for the rest of the season.

Shappy, the club have more support to Ole than his predecessors. He'll get money to spend and the time given will depend on results.

AJH, I would assume Conte, Rodgers and Zidane were not on the list as they could have been obtainable immediately. That leaves Pochettino, Ten Haag and Southgate as ed002 has alluded to, though Southgate won't be available this time around thank God. All signs do point to Poch.

6.) 21 Nov 2021 14:15:40
What about the fact we haven't had a leader on the pitch for years now, when will that change or that when things get tough there's a rotten core that quickly down tools as happened under the last 4 managers.

Before we even look at the lack of football men at the top of the tree.

7.) 21 Nov 2021 14:19:49
Yes the club are better off.
It will take time to get the preferred candidate in.
Ole picked the team and tactics not the coaches so while they have proven to be poor . They were following oles plan. Perhaps they will be better without him.
Perhaps the won't but the won't be worse imo.

{Ed014's Note - whatever happens the next coach will surely offload the lot of them.

To a man they looked as clueless as Ole.

8.) 21 Nov 2021 14:47:04
GDS, you'd hope that no one they get in now will be as bad as Ole has been this season. But you can never say never, not with this board.

DLIB, from a perspective of what we will see on the pitch for the next few games then no the club is in the exact same position. At least if they put Fletcher in charge then maybe some new ideas might have been floated. However, nothing would have the chance of getting better unless you pull the band aid off.

Mumbles, the club didn't really give any more money to Ole than they did his predecessors. He just got more by virtue of being here longer because he hit the basic target of UCL qualification. While the time he got was "earned" by hitting those targets set by the club.

Pochettino seems to be the club's first choice, but they won't pay to get him out of his PSG contact. A deal I suspect would be fairly easy to broker given that several people at PSG aren't convinced by him and he will likely be sacked the moment the club is out the UCL.

So we wait.

9.) 21 Nov 2021 14:32:46
It’s always very hard to know what amount of input the coaches have and how much is being delegated. They could have been calling all the shots and nothing will change or they could have been suggesting changes that Ole ignored. As mentioned I think the majority will be cleared out once a new manager comes in, but we know for certain that McKenna was a much better coach with the kids, they played some really good football.

I’d love a new coach to try and integrate some younger players into the team now, Amad, Elanga, Laird, Garner, Hannibal all deserve to get a look in in pre season and then if they perform they get a chance. Elanga was pretty much our best player in pre season and looks like scoring every time he plays, I think he’s had 5 minutes at left back, it makes no sense. Players perform well for the under 23s and then don’t get anywhere near the team. That needs to change.

10.) 21 Nov 2021 14:34:02
Yeah ed014 for sure the new guy will get rid of them all and surround himself with subject matter experts.
I'm very open minded. There is not one candidate that would be wise than ole imo.
So just need to be patient. Today is the beginning of another new start. The best day in our recent history imo.

{Ed014's Note - absolutely mate, it would a miracle to find someone worse!



29 Oct 2021 15:04:26
Ed001, What did the fans think of Souness before he took over at at Liverpool and did it change when he left?


{Ed001's Note - loved him before but it did damage his rep badly. However, that was mainly down to him selling his story to the S*n more than the fact we were utter cack under him. It was that which ended his time at the club and not before time as he was woeful.}

1.) 29 Oct 2021 16:33:26
That will certainly do it Ed. There's a few sins that can't be forgiven and that's up there for the Liverpool fan base.

{Ed001's Note - right near the top of the list that one.}

2.) 30 Oct 2021 09:36:31
This was an extract from Souness's apology,
“There is no one who hurts more than me whenever the Hillsborough thing is mentioned. It hurts me because I had a great time as a player at Liverpool and I’d like to think I had a great relationship with the supporters at the time, and it hurts me. I can only apologise and it’s something I have to live with. ”

I read this and thought Hillsborough thing, bad choice of words at best. It should always be Hillsborough tragedy, saying thing comes across as dismissive.

We're already very bloated in midfield. With Pogba looking to see out his contract and McFred being untouchable, Matic wouldn't have many suitors. I wonder will Van De Beek be released from his shackles?

I don't think Saul would come to sit on the bench.

Everything Jose said about the club came to fruition. All the players he wanted to sell stayed and have been extremely poor. Players he wanted to sign like Perisic who were lambasted for being too old went on to be integral in league and champions league winning sides.

The club and some fans weren't in the right frame of mind for Jose. Some still romanticized about a manager coming in who spoke of United DNA and the United way, well we got that and it ended up setting the club back a serious way.

I'm unhappy with how this season was tossed in the bin with so much to play for when we could have gotten Conte in. There are some fans who look down on certain managers like Jose, Conte, Simeone which I don't think is right.

But we've taken our medicine and hopefully with Ten Hag it will begin to look brighter.

It's one big table GDS2. 36 teams in one table. Everyone plays 10 games. 5 home and 5 away and a new opponent every game. The top 8 go through to the last 16. 9th to 16th will play 17th to 24th in a two legged game to then play the top 8.

How do you beat the Super League, you make your own one.

Apparently Maguire has been calling people out for their mistakes costing us points. Though a captain should be doing this of course, it doesn't hold much weight coming from a captain who hasn't really delivered himself.

The club is a mess, the team is a mess and it will probably get a lot worse before it gets better.

Shappy you're arguments are incredibly weak. No need to go full straw man when trying to make a point. Of course if those 3 play at the highest standard than he wouldn't play but they're not are they? Right this second Elanga deserves to be starting because he is currently better than Rashford.

Your point about him being another Macheda yesterday was way wide of the mark too. He's shown much more than just a goal threat. I could understand the pessimistic approach if he was playing 2 or 3 years and not kicking on. I genuinelly don't know what else the kid can do to please people. I have been thoroughly impressed.

Backed Ole for 3 years even though he showed no promise. Writing off a kid after 15 games because he's not better than peak Ronaldo.?

I know England have a history of taking things that don't belong to them, but Elanga is Swedish and won't be playing for England.

I honestly don't know what more you can ask from the kid. He's come in, scored some vital goals, played better than his more experienced colleagues. Just let the kid play football without writing him off.
