Ryan Sessegnon seems to get better and better. Massive talent at his age. With us badly needing a decent LB, just wondered ED002 If United are keeping tabs on him? Have we any interest at all? Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 21 Jan 2018 00:53:06
Shame. Think he’ll go right to the top of the game.

{Ed007's Note - And wishing he was Kieran Tierney....

2.) 21 Jan 2018 07:18:06
We have a decent left back, his name is Luke Shaw.

3.) 21 Jan 2018 08:45:12
And oh how reliable he’s proven to be over the last 3/ 4 years. He needs proper competition, it’s a weak area in our side.

4.) 21 Jan 2018 10:24:37
If We keep the Shaw we have seen the way 4/ 5 matches we have a player on our hands. Remains to be seen. Don’t see what’s wrong with keeping Darmian to fill in on both sides as and when (unless he wants to leave to play regular football) . Don’t forget Young has been excellent too this season. If TFM comes back next season he can provide good cover at right back.

Midfield is where we need some serious re-inforcements now we have Sanchez coming.

5.) 21 Jan 2018 11:43:27

Because it’s all about shiny new signings mate, forget the dead wood we already have, they are all useless.

6.) 21 Jan 2018 13:09:04
Keeping Darmian means blocking the chance of any comptetent right sided full back. That is to say stopping us getting a full back that can defend, attack at pace, can put in a good cross and who might chip in with the odd goal.

7.) 21 Jan 2018 13:05:13
I haven't seen enough of Ryan, but from what I've heard he will soon be at a top club in the PL. On the other hand I've watched Tierney on a couple of occasions and I think we should go for him. Young could be cover for Valencia and Shaw and Tierney can battle for the LB.

8.) 21 Jan 2018 13:22:40
Ryan looks a very good player could and might play a bit further forward in the future.

9.) 21 Jan 2018 14:01:53
Let's remember also that if rojo is good enough to play left back for Argentina in a world cup final then he ie certainly good enough to play left back for us.

10.) 21 Jan 2018 14:41:59
No he'S not.

11.) 21 Jan 2018 14:43:37
Argentina’s left options must be dire then because Rojo is shocking at left back not having a dig at him because I think he’s a very good centre back but left he is terrible.

12.) 21 Jan 2018 15:42:26
I dnt think he'll be a left back for much longer in his career! He's basically a LWB right now at Fulham. Wouldn't surprise me if he ends being a LW in his prime years!

13.) 21 Jan 2018 16:11:43
I agree, may move forward like bale did.

14.) 21 Jan 2018 22:43:12
Competent right beck BFB? Darmian plays for Italy. The mastersof defending.

15.) 24 Jan 2018 17:35:08
Worst italy team for 80 years.



15 Jan 2018 16:00:57
Ed002, sorry to bother, just wondered if there was any update with regards to Sanchez. With Wengers saying it could be done in 24/ 48 hours is there any progress ether way? Where do you see his most likely destination? Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer "most likely" questions sensibly. Wenger ill likely be right that it will be completed soon - perhaps in the next couple of days but there is no agreement just yet.}

1.) 15 Jan 2018 16:05:19
Twitchy bum time, we'll just have to wait and see.

2.) 15 Jan 2018 16:09:48
No probs ed, cheers.

3.) 15 Jan 2018 16:15:06
Notice that it says will be completed but not where he will complete to. I still struggle to believe he will be a Utd player with it seeming so nailed on for city for so long.



08 Aug 2017 20:46:54
Will that be the end of the Bale rumours?


1.) 08 Aug 2017 22:31:19
Does that actually change anything if they only wanted to sell him if they get Mbappe?
Would he have been playing if Ronaldo was fit?

2.) 09 Aug 2017 05:55:54

3.) 09 Aug 2017 07:00:11
Would Isco not be available if Mbappe comes in AND Bale stays?

4.) 09 Aug 2017 07:25:48
Allen. Did u watch bale last night? You don't think he would be a big upgrade on anyone in our team then? He would be our best player and give us a whole new dimension.

5.) 09 Aug 2017 09:04:35
But if he doesn't want to come then its pointless chasing after him.

6.) 09 Aug 2017 10:07:53
Mort, exactly, hence the OP.

7.) 09 Aug 2017 10:30:01
dont clubs usually ask the agent if his player would be willing to join and I'd imagine if we got told he (bale) has no desire to join us then we just wouldn't pursue him so if we are interested like the eds have said we are then we must have been encouraged to carry on pursuing.

I've no idea if this makes any sense my heads a shed from just writing it 😀.

8.) 09 Aug 2017 11:03:37
I think i know what you mean dave :-)

9.) 09 Aug 2017 11:10:57
And bales agent has always said that his client is going nowhere. Wd bale improve our team. probably. but not at a cost of 90m.
Despite being 32 cr7 is valued 40m more than when we sold him in his prime. Bale despite being only 28 is valued the same as he was 4 years ago, this in an era when transfer fees are rocketing. Why has bales value not risen? 3 reasons imo. injury record, the loss of that extreme pace that made him so devastating previously and the fact that RM would happily cash in on him if he could be persuaded to leave so that they could buy mbappe.
Good player yes but not worth 90m or so with his injury record.
Would prefer isco all day long as I suspect RM will when la liga kicks off.

10.) 09 Aug 2017 11:56:55
I watched the game and he did very little can see why he might be available. He is no where as influential in that Madrid team as the other guys (modric, isco, kroos, Ronaldo, benzema) and for me influences the game very little. For 90 million I would rather spend it on 2 other players.

He does no defending and good in a counter attack sense where he has a lot of room to run into. Put Martial or Rashford into that real team and they would thrive as well if given the chance to run one on one at defenders.

I would not be surprised if Real come calling in a year or two for our guys.

11.) 09 Aug 2017 13:29:17
Watching us last night I wish we had signed Bernardo silva He can keep the ball, we are miles away, Lukaku did nothing to impress me or change my mind about him, didn't look mobile, or have a great touch.

12.) 09 Aug 2017 15:46:53
Still think we need a CM who can control the game Herrera for me isn't good enough he's a jack of all trades master of none. With matic at DM I would prefer a more technical player than Herrera I like him but to get to the next level we need a modric or silva type player who can unlock deep defences and keep Possesion in tight areas.

13.) 10 Aug 2017 09:26:00
Lukaku is all brain, he's reading of the game is just on another level :D.



14 Jul 2017 17:55:44
Matic missing Chelsea tour. Think it's imminent then.


1.) 14 Jul 2017 20:22:26
Juventus are supposedly interested too.



09 Jul 2017 13:52:20
All the best Wayne Rooney. We had 8-9 really good years from him. Hope he is successful back at Everton.


1.) 09 Jul 2017 13:58:13
well said stand-United.

2.) 09 Jul 2017 18:24:23
After Ronaldo left he practically carried us.

3.) 09 Jul 2017 19:42:06
lets just take a moment to remember that overhead kick against City.

4.) 09 Jul 2017 20:28:36
and the newcastle volley.

Don't post much these days, but I had too. Absolutely sickened at our once great club. My love for football has been on the decline in recent years, billionaire owners with no interest in football taking over clubs and paying extortionate wages and fees while driving up the cost of attending games, merchandise and even tv subscriptions doesn't sit well with me. They have forgotten the fundamental foundation of every club, the working class families who spend hard earn money supporting them. It's no longer a game for the working man, and they really couldn't care less.

Who wants to see our club playing in a league with no pressure to win or lose, no relegation threat, just a league where the owners make billions with nothing to play for. Remember 20 years ago the magic of CL games under the flood lights, I used to love them games, the odd occasion you had Real Madrid or Juventus visiting. Who wants that on a weekly basis

Our club has sold its soul and if they go ahead with this, I'll never attend another game. I'll continue to support my local club Wrexham. Absolutely disgusted with United.


1.) 19 Apr 2021 08:18:47
With you completely Stan-United.

2.) 19 Apr 2021 08:22:30
Couldn't agree more Stand, I didn't realise Wrexham is your local club, it is mine also, will have to join you on matchday and discuss when United used to be a football club.

3.) 19 Apr 2021 08:37:34
With you a 100%.
I tend to think this will be negotiated away into something different.

I will support us until the day I die but hate the owners, vehemently.

I will do all I can to resist any temptation to watch this ESL, I won't spend money on a shirt or any over official merchandise either.

This denigrates the memory of the babes and all the things Busby stood for. I hope there's a civil war behind the scenes.

It's very telling that foreign owners don't respect 100s of years of institution.

If it carries on, I think I'm off to non league.

Won't be posting much going forward, time for a break. Love to all, keep safe.

Props to: Ngiak, Rainfish, Sydney, Shaps, Ken, redman, stand and many more who I've missed I've enjoyed reading many of your opinions over the years.

Stay classy reds.

4.) 19 Apr 2021 08:39:45
I've already stopped watching United lollll.

5.) 19 Apr 2021 20:02:22
Been a Utd fan since early 70s but after events of the last few days i shall be putting my allegiance behind my local club, Sheffield United, will probably still watch man u if they’re on TV but won’t care if they get beat, it’s taken my passion away 😢.



07 Mar 2021 18:22:19
I'm first on when we've been shocking, so today fair play a good performance and a great result against a team who man for man are probably better in every single position. So a cracking result.


1.) 07 Mar 2021 18:39:31
Totally agree stand.

2.) 07 Mar 2021 18:43:35
It’s frustrating isn’t it. We beat what is clearly the best team in the country yet we lose to Sheffield United and draw with West Brom. Mind boggling,

3.) 07 Mar 2021 18:44:51
100% mate. buzzing with that result ☺️.

4.) 07 Mar 2021 18:46:04
Yes, great result and what a game from Luke Shaw, how was he not MOM?

In the grand scheme of things, the bigger picture, City will still win the league but bragging rights are ours. Underdogs in derby games!

5.) 07 Mar 2021 18:57:51
Well, well, well. Superb today. Well done OGS and team. Big credit where it’s due. Highlights our frustration. This team can actually compete!

6.) 07 Mar 2021 19:06:13
Spot on tactics aswell, great team performance.

7.) 07 Mar 2021 19:08:32
Just isn’t good enough that we can produce a display like that abs play so shockingly against palace earlier in the week.

8.) 07 Mar 2021 19:12:01
Good performance, good pressing and intensity.
We need the same mentality against all the teams.
Ole gets another one over Pep!

Bigger picture as the commentators said, United win this battle but City will win the war.

9.) 07 Mar 2021 19:13:33
Fair play stand. Great result.

Red Man, you called it in fairness to you!

10.) 07 Mar 2021 19:16:43
Interesting I was reading something last week about teams that go on long winnings runs, then suddenly when they go behind in a game, because its such an unfamiliar situation, they don't know how to react and struggle to respond. Whereas teams that have to come from behind on a regular basis are more resilient.
Fair play to our PE teacher, once again schools Pep in tactical awareness.

11.) 07 Mar 2021 19:19:36
Bigger picture is it keeps a dogfight 4 top4 at bay.

{Ed014's Note - even bigger picture, keeps Ole at the wheel! 👌

12.) 07 Mar 2021 19:24:42
Great result. I eat humble pie having thought City would thrash us but if we don't invest in at least 3 top players in the summer then individual highlights like this will be as good as it gets.

We need a top centre back, top creative midfielder and top centre forward to have any chance of winning trophies consistently.

Also I know it sounds perverse after such a win but I still do not believe Ole is good enough.

13.) 07 Mar 2021 20:32:21
Salford, can't argue about a top CB and Striker, but how do you get to needing a quality creative midfielder? We have one of the best in the world. Saul may be the missing piece?

14.) 07 Mar 2021 22:44:17
We have plenty of creativity. Pogba (if he stays) and Bruno can do that. We need an upgraded version of Fred with good passing and distribution and we could be in good shape.

Top CF I totally agree with and CB are a must.

15.) 07 Mar 2021 23:46:29
Pogba (if he stays) is not as creative as Bruno. I would love to have Grealish in our team. As a player he has matured a lot. Provides loads of chances and scores a fair share too.

He would take the burden of creativity off Bruno and by drawing defenders to him make more space for others.



14 Feb 2021 16:32:57
More turgid football dished up. What exactly is the game plan, the tactics, the structure to our play? I don't see any patten of play or style.

All we do every game is go out and hope for a moment of magic or a pen to win the game. There is no coached style of play. It's pathetic. No just 2 wins from last 7 prem games.

Lindelof and Maguire are a laughing stock. Absolute fairies the pair of them. Martial offering nothing, Rashford really testing my patience.

Still a squad of bang average players with a completely clueless and incompetent manager.


1.) 14 Feb 2021 16:48:57
Stand we think alike. Martial is like playing with 10 men. The 2 at the back are a joke. Rashford tries to make these fast runs and ends up losing the ball then when he is in a good position he hits it straight at the keeper. Makes bad decisions.
It will be the very same next season if ole is there. The worry for me is will Bruno get fed up of the same thing every week.

2.) 14 Feb 2021 16:53:38
Shame the manager wasn’t backed in the summer transfer window. We could have had Sean Longstaff running the midfield for us.

3.) 14 Feb 2021 17:29:22
You couldn't blame Bruno if he did get fed up and tempted when a big contract is waived under his nose by the likes of Barcelona or Madrid. He must be up there with the best in the world right now and he's surrounded be incompetent clowns.



30 Jan 2021 21:02:51
Dross. That is all.


1.) 30 Jan 2021 22:03:07
It’s been a poor couple of games, very disappointing but Ole must break this cycle of taking us on a good run followed by a poor one.

Our next four league games are Southampton, Everton, West Brom then Newcastle. It’s time to look forward not back.

If we can’t win those games you can forget a title challenge and we’ll be back in a dog fight for top 4!

2.) 30 Jan 2021 22:16:22
Southampton and Everton clearly saving their big performances for us 😉🤣.

3.) 31 Jan 2021 00:39:44
now the downward run starts. a very good manager with the blips other teams have had with this squad could of had us with a good points advantage now. gds you said it on the discussions page a few weeks ago. not making it up or malace intended it just made me laugh mate.

4.) 31 Jan 2021 00:42:47
It was good while it lasted.

5.) 31 Jan 2021 02:16:20
We are not in a title challenge.

We are so boring to watch. Slow, no balls to go for it and take risks.

6.) 31 Jan 2021 12:18:32

I definitely did not say it pal, you’re getting me confused with someone else I assume. I have checked my posts and I 100% didn’t say it or think it.



27 Jan 2021 22:13:55
That was absolute garbage. A few of you have been getting carrried away with how we're playing, I've felt uneasy in many many games this season, we've had a lot of scrappy or lucky wins, this result has been coming.

The back 5 are a calamity, the defending for the second goal especially was literally pathetic, toe poke clearances 10 years, static defenders, abysmal.

The front 4 including Bruno in that have been terrible for some time. Rashford has been off it for weeks, he's getting too destructed with being a hero off the pitch, Martial is one of the laziest forward I've ever seen at United, Greenwood has been sh*te all season.

This result genuinely hasn't shocked me, it's been on the cards. With Arsenal, Southampton and Everton coming up we could be miles off city by a week from now.


1.) 27 Jan 2021 22:41:19
Or we could win all 3 and be closer than you think, it’s a weird season and it’s our first defeat since early November. Not good enough tonight, not sure anyone has particularly been getting carried away, people are allowed to enjoy being top of the league and winning lost of games quite rightly but everyone is aware of our limitations.

2.) 27 Jan 2021 23:48:12
Gds, I don’t think some are aware mate. We’ve papered over a lot of cracks recently, more often than not it’s a bit of magic from a Bruno goal or assist that gets us out of jail, tonight he couldn’t produce so neither do we. Tonight was turkey abysmal, the lack of desire to win the ball back and defend really was worrying.

3.) 28 Jan 2021 01:12:01
To be honest, maybe we needed a loss to remind the players/ fans that we are not “back” yet and there is still work to be done. 13 games unbeaten is still an achievement, But the key now is the reaction for the arsenal game on Saturday and making sure that this one loss doesn’t turn into a 3 or 4 game slump.

4.) 28 Jan 2021 01:53:29
Bit dramatic.

5.) 28 Jan 2021 05:46:49
I think greenwood wasn't rubbish today, he was getting into good positions.
And for rashford, he doesn't seem the type of guy who lacks work rate, never was. To me he's either crooked or injured and is struggling to play. Ole doesn't help and will again run him to death.

6.) 28 Jan 2021 06:37:21

You know people have been getting carried away on here, the top of the league cup was paraded a number of times.

Frankly the statistically worst ever Premier League team after half a season came to OT and gave us a lesson in shape and tactics. Embarrassing and the finger has to be pointed at Ole for this defeat. Start by asking what he sees in Martial.

7.) 28 Jan 2021 12:01:21
Red Man,

Haven't seen anyone parading this made up thing you seem to think happened, people were happy to be top of the league and were hopeful we could maintain it, that's what being a fan is about, enjoying good results.

Wazza how can he be his preferred choice of the two when Dybala isn’t here yet? Rashford May be his preferred choice with what we have. Rashford hardly set the world alight. He didn’t bang in 25 goals did he. To talk as if someone’s position is set in stone isn’t good for anyone. Anyone and I mean anyone including your best players should feel they have to perform to keep their place in the side.

Leicester city did the impossible and won the PL against all the odds, with the size of the club and the gulf in financial clout they have compared to the big boys it was a phenomenal feat. For that achievement they got to play on the biggest stage at club football, deservedly so, with the chance of being drawn Barcelona or Madrid for instance. Why should that be taken away from them? Why do we and other clubs have a god and given right to play in the “elite” league without qualifying for it? Christ we only get to the CL every now and then these days. Arsenal another who barely get in anymore, Tottenham another. It’s nothing short of a disgrace.

The people who run the clubs don’t give two rubbishs about their true core supporters, it’s all greed and money and a kick in the teeth to all the working class who have followed these clubs home and away over the years.

The whole thing stinks, and our club with these owners if rotten to the core: I’m literally disgusted with everything we’ve become to stand for.

Shappy your always hiding the players and ole behind excuses. Exhaustion, give us a rest. Here is it, the reason we’ve won 3 from our last 10. is because the manager is Sh*Te and so are half the players. They can’t be arsed to earn their £200k a week and people like you accepting it left them off the hook.
