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.

100 games and where's the identity? What actually is Ole trying to achieve? What's his best side? What's his formations? It's criminal that 100 games in he still doesn't have the answers.

One minute it's 352, then it's 433, diamond, 4231, it's like they pick from a hat each game. When his players have been brought in, Maguire, AWB, Telles, Bruno, Donny etc, have they been signed with a clear plan, a formation, style of play he wants? It's baffling. Why is Pogba still at the club? When does he ever put a shift in? I'd start Donny over Pogba every day of the week, at least he wants to play.

The subs Ole makes also baffle me, he leaves it late, makes bizarre changes. 10 to go today, he's worried about conceding, why? Your losing with ten to go, I know let's take Greenwood and Bruno off, leave McTom on with Matic. Genuinely no idea what he's trying to do with United and the sooner the board realise he's miles out of his depth the better. Unfortunately that won't be any time soon with this shower running the club.


1.) 01 Nov 2020 19:14:46
I don't really know what people see on him. Take two or three.

2.) 01 Nov 2020 19:17:29
I just don't know what people see on him. Take 3-4 exceptional games the rest are just average at best.
But his bringing the United way right?

At this pace I have to agree with Neville, 2030-2040 we can talk again about winning the Premier League.



01 Nov 2020 18:16:01
Normal service resumed. Absolutely woeful yet again. I don't care if we equalise after I post this, it's another shambles of a performance. There are posters here who continue to defend Pogba, the blokes a joker honestly. Thinks he's world class, I wouldn't have him in the squad, just floats around likes he's playing in the park.

How many times do we give the ball away, it's pathetic honestly. 75 mins gone, losing and needing a goal, Ole refuses to bring off McTominay to add another offensive player and brings off Fernandez and Greenwood instead. As bad a start to the season as I can remember, not improving, one good result here and there in Europe doesn't cover over this sh! t show.


1.) 01 Nov 2020 18:22:37

2.) 01 Nov 2020 18:25:39
Agree with all of that Stand we were awful.

It was so obvious that Pogba was going to commit the foul for the penalty. He’s the most overrated player I’ve ever seen play for us. Like you, I can’t get my head around those who defend him and say he’s world class. He’s a headless chicken.

3.) 01 Nov 2020 18:25:51
We are moving in the right direction towards relegation. 😄😄.



28 Oct 2020 20:49:25
Decent first half, looked comfortable. On thing tho, Fred infuriates me every time he plays. Genuinely gives the ball away about 10 times a match.




27 Oct 2020 18:32:44
The whole DVB situation is yet another embarrassment the club have caused themselves, really is shameful how the club is currently run.

As for the team, I think we're better with 5 at the back. Our CB's aren't good enough in a back four. Luke Shaw isn't good enough LB but decent at LCB. I think we should go to a back 5 with Telles and AWB providing width, Shaw, Lindelof and Tuanzebe/ Maguire the three CB's.

For midfield I'd have Matic sitting, with VDB and Bruno, and then Rashford and Martial/ Cavani up top. Pogba on bench at best. He should have been sold. That's the way I'd like to see us set up until we could sort the CB issue we clearly struggle with.


1.) 27 Oct 2020 18:52:24
Why is it embarrassing buying DVB .
Telles hasn't really played why is that not a issue .
Ziyech at Chelsea where does he fit in
Torres at City?
We are 5 games into the season.

2.) 27 Oct 2020 19:24:05
Due to what ed001 and ed002 outlined below. Bought and told he would start but isn't? Bit embarrassing alright.

3.) 27 Oct 2020 19:34:46
7 games into the season, I don't understand how it's shameful? The guy is just settling into a new city and league.
I think the over reacting by some is what is embarrassing.

I would understand if he had played 2 times at the end of the season, but 7 games in,

4.) 27 Oct 2020 19:37:08
Angel i'm not embarrassed and if any footballer believes he will move to a club and start regardless its him who should be embarrassed. I find it hard to belive that is the case.

He started against Luton and Brighton was he really that good that he couldn't be left out the starting 11 the next game.
Does he expect to start every game regardless?

5.) 27 Oct 2020 19:37:13
He needs to be patient. He will get a start. And when he does its up to himself to show the manager, you can't drop me. I'm sure if he keeps his head down, works hard and has a good attitude he will be a starter.
Surely pogba is on his last season.

6.) 27 Oct 2020 19:44:39
I agree with that, I think its great that we have options in cm.

7.) 27 Oct 2020 19:45:42
You don't need to be embarrassed at all and our opinion about how he played against Luton and Brighton is irrelevant.

Ed002 has already given us the info. Bit silly of the club to be promising things like that. I can understand the lads frustration given what he was told.

8.) 27 Oct 2020 19:48:55
Because as ed001 and Ed002 have explained he was signed for big money with the understanding he’d be an important player for us, and yet he hasn’t even started a premier league game yet, being kept out the size by a bang average Fred and McTominay, with no clear plan for the lad. It’s not like we’re top of the league playing amazing football and the teams picks itself is it. He can’t get a start and barely a sub appearance because our manager is Clueless.

9.) 27 Oct 2020 19:58:26
Stand he may well be a important player for us . He is 1 month into a 5 year contract I think your jumping the gun
I don't think Ed 2 has said anything of the sort . Unless I have missed it . But again DVB is 1 month in to a 5 year contract.

10.) 27 Oct 2020 20:10:54
Apologies, meant ed001.

11.) 27 Oct 2020 20:14:02
 I would assume he is just not settling in as quickly as some do. On the face of it, it seems to be a unnecessary buy to be honest, but it does allow Ole to bleed him into the team gradually. It took Robertson and Fabinho months to force their way into the Liverpool team after they joined, purely because they took time to get the hang of the instructions they were being given. They would both revert automatically to their previous style of play once on the pitch, it might be that vdB is the same. He has come through at Ajax and only known one way to play, you have plenty of options in that position, so you can take your time and make sure he is fully ready to go when he does get starts.

What exactly are you trying to say ed 01 has said .

12.) 27 Oct 2020 20:19:22
Read below what ed001 said about assurances he was given and read what ed002 says about being offered to Barcelona and real, doesn't seem right.

Unnecessary because pogba is there. Unless you're willing to really drop pogba, not much point having van de beek there but he is there.

13.) 27 Oct 2020 20:28:52
So because he has only started 2 games out of the first 7 ( which ed1 also gives a decent reason why ) that means that them assurance are not true?

14.) 27 Oct 2020 20:45:52
Well if it wasn't an issue, his people wouldn't be offering him around now would they?

You can draw your on conclusions. But the facts are, he was given assurances he would start and now after 7 games he's been offered around 🤔.

15.) 27 Oct 2020 20:49:37
Ed's own reasons are completely correct, it's not a big deal and he should only be settling in.

But ed has clearly stated that he was given assurances so why did they do that?

16.) 27 Oct 2020 20:58:33
Are you saying DVB was given assurances about his role in the first month?

17.) 27 Oct 2020 20:57:33
Ed02 can you confirm that since donny VDB has signed for united he is trying now trying to move to Madrid or Barcelona.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained the situation already. You are trying to make a bigger deal of this than it is.}

18.) 27 Oct 2020 21:10:51
Just read what he writes jerd, it's not difficult 😂.

19.) 27 Oct 2020 21:13:42
Ed 02 sorry to be a pain and I agree the whole thing is being blown out of proportion.

20.) 27 Oct 2020 21:24:23
DVB is a good player and a good signing
He will take time to get used to his new surroundings and League he is or will be playing in
Have you ever thought that he is probably doing a lot of work behind the scenes to get himself up to speed? As in fitness etc etc
Give the lad a break, and also your manager for that matter
5 games in and a long long way to go on many fronts.

21.) 27 Oct 2020 21:49:49
What is embarrassing is this whole overreaction to the DVB ‘thing’, firstly in the press then by proxy here. Clearly the player was scouted extensively by Ole for some time. Just because he hasn’t started a few games the whole thing is a mistake? Please. He’ll play plenty and I expect the midfield competition will ease in the next few windows.

22.) 27 Oct 2020 22:15:40
Nice to see a Liverpool fan come on here and show man utd supporters how to behave. He speaks the truth! (Burn him! )

23.) 27 Oct 2020 22:51:40
Agree spenno he will play plenty. Once he get into the team i would expect him to play well enough to oust others from the line up.
I think signing him is far from a mistake. I think he will flourish at united its hard for him at the moment I'm sure he is frustrated but i hope he comes good.

24.) 28 Oct 2020 06:08:32
I see VDB as a long term replacement for Pogba.

25.) 28 Oct 2020 07:38:18
Yeah jerd, no need to make this any bigger than it is. I'm sure DVB will be absolutely fine in the long run. Good player.

{Ed025's Note - all this jerd and angle nonsense needs to stop guys or the posts will just be deleted, its very childish..

26.) 28 Oct 2020 08:36:12
You know things are bad when Ed025 starts getting annoyed 😁.

27.) 28 Oct 2020 09:15:21
Spenno, it's just another brick in the wall born of the wrong coach for Man Utd and the amateur running of the football club.

Maybe it will come good but meanwhile we are dropping points because Solksjaer keeps picking the wrong team and using the wrong tactics.

28.) 28 Oct 2020 16:04:04
Ed025, that's my autocorrect, I sometimes just don't bother to change it when posting. Typing on the fly. Not meant to be anything. Try not to read into it too much.

{Ed025's Note - i will take your word for that angel mate..

29.) 28 Oct 2020 16:09:34
I don't think jred mean anything by it either, he's been calling me angle for years and it doesn't bother me.

{Ed025's Note - fair enough, maybe im wrong and if i am i apologise..



24 Oct 2020 19:25:31
Well that was dross. What a boring, lacklustre display, no creativity. Baffles me why we sign a better creative LB and leave him out. Buy a better CM for £40m and he can't get on the pitch in front of McTominay and Fred. To start with them two says a lot. And greenwood on the bench with Dan James starting. Shocking team selection and shocking performance.


1.) 24 Oct 2020 19:30:45
A selection and performance fitting for our manager.

2.) 24 Oct 2020 21:07:44
Poor game to watch to be honest, but a draw with Chelsea isn't a bad result .
Chelsea put in a jose performance today,

3.) 24 Oct 2020 22:18:41
And we did the same jred. After all we both are Mourinhos ex clubs.

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.

Ed004 I agree with you he’s our best player, by that I mean most talented. But it doesn’t take away from the fact he’s not a team player. He wants everyone to do the hard graft for him to play the Hollywood pass. Always the same. I also don’t care if his attitude pre season has been good, last season I watched numerous games he let players literally walk past him without any effort to win the ball, players run off him with no effort again. When your a world class side you can carry a player or two like him. We cannot afford a luxury like that. So for me he needs to go.

Im amazed by the selection tbh. I would have stuck with the back 5. Telles and Tuanzebe were as good as anyone in our back four this season. Also don’t know how Dan James warrants a start. Baffling.
