Worst case scenario would not be no signing today but losing Pogba after window closes ๐Ÿ˜ฅ.

1.) 08 Aug 2019 09:06:47
One thing I'm sure of is that if we don't sign a midfielder, there is absolutely no way Pogba would be allowed to leave.

2.) 08 Aug 2019 09:10:32
Pogba wonโ€™t go now but will be off next season cannot blame him he has been given no support in that midfield. How Woodward is allowed to dictate transfer policy is beyond me, he is a laughing stock to other clubs. Yet again another appalling transfer window. I know we got maguire and AWB in but we could have had both of them in on day 1 of the window and paid exactly what we paid anyhow. He has again failed to sign a midfielder and we currently minus pogba have the worst midfield in the top half of the table and the others are all strengthening. Sold lukaku without a recognised goal scorer now at the club, genius. As long as Woodward is at the club it will go nowhere but backwards. 7th place this season providing Pogba stays fit.

3.) 08 Aug 2019 09:22:41
That's one take Rivian. Another is that it allows other players to step up, allowing more game time for McT and Gomes who look like they are ready for a breakthrough season.

Who knows. I'm just guessing, like you are.

4.) 08 Aug 2019 09:23:11
Hope never dies (until the deadline), we'll have a midfielder even if it's Jonjo Shelvey!

5.) 08 Aug 2019 09:59:46
Jaime๐Ÿคฉ you are already consistent in your posts mate.

Wazza, ziko we can't kid ourselves if Pogba leaves without a replacement some of statements posted here like season is over before it began would be absolutely true.

6.) 08 Aug 2019 10:15:29
Best case scenario is we make no signings, are outside the top 4 by Christmas, realise its Woodward that needs to go and actually sort the club structure out.

7.) 08 Aug 2019 10:53:37
I wonder what happened with the technical director or director of football Unite were looking at.



02 Aug 2019 04:17:18
Sly saying that Maguire made it clear he wants to move and we are ready to Offer 80m but Leicester demanding 85m and we are not ready to pay that much.

Same sly in another report quoting one of its reporter saying 80m is the 'magic figure' to get him.

I have a feeling that it would drag a bit more again. I still feel he is the most important signing for us in this window, it's scary to think of going into the season with only Lindelof as a decent CB. It's time we wrap this up.

1.) 02 Aug 2019 07:48:36
What makes the McGuire 'transfer' more excruciating is having to look and listen to Leicester's mouthpiece. Brendan Rogers. horrible little smarm.

2.) 02 Aug 2019 08:04:34
I agree Rivian but the fee is outrageous.

3.) 02 Aug 2019 08:56:35
I can't say we need not worry about the money as we see over paying wages and fee have been problematic in case of Sanchez, Lukaku. It is very difficult to move them on and not being able to move them block other signings.

But it is how the market now, any kid with potential 40/50m any relatively unknown guy has one or two good season it is 80/90m. So we don't have an option.



01 Aug 2019 17:55:18
So after Tottenham news, apparently Dybala deal is now being 'hijacked' by Inter with a swap for Icardi.

What next Maguire joins City? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ.

1.) 01 Aug 2019 18:39:35
Hope Maguire joins city.

2.) 01 Aug 2019 18:53:39
Seems he has been left out of the squad for friendly. guess he will be announced soon mate.

I understand that some here doesn't rate him but no one can deny that he is certainly an improvement with the defeders we already have, so may be the guys in-charge of our transfers identified him as an improvement that is attainable. with bailley also injured I feel he will be an important signing for us.

Bruno will also be a cracking signing for us but now with Spurs involved I am a bit worried. we should have wrapped up both the deals early.

3.) 01 Aug 2019 20:43:58
We will probably end up doubling the wages that Spurs offer him.

Either way itโ€™s all media rubbish, new stories every day that contradict each other. They had Fernandes booked in for a Utd medical last week and now heโ€™s going to Spurs.

Canโ€™t wait til this window closes so we can get back to discussing football!

So McT and Pogba not available till Feb end. we are overplaying Fred and we all know Matic can not definitely play consecutive matches.

So those who are following the youngsters, is Hannibal mejbri ready for the first team? Would ole look to play him given the lack of available options?

1.) 20 Jan 2020 14:41:06
Heโ€™s good, he eats the opposition for breakfast.

2.) 20 Jan 2020 14:51:54
Ofcourse, with some fava beans! ๐Ÿ˜œ.

3.) 20 Jan 2020 14:54:22
Loves a good Chianti.

4.) 20 Jan 2020 15:16:36
He's a kid, a talented one but Levitt and Garner are well ahead of him. Plus TFM might get a run at DM now he's back from injury.

5.) 20 Jan 2020 16:38:51
It quite frankly will be a disgrace now if the club donโ€™t get Bruno Fernandes deal over the line. Itโ€™s not fair even considering throwing Mejbri into the first team yet. Heโ€™s only a 16 year old kid and this is his first year in England. A player we wanted in the summer is available and we continue to mess up negotiations. We knew the price in the summer and we know it now- either pay it or move on. So much time gets wasted.

6.) 20 Jan 2020 17:22:52
What baffles me is Garner used to make benches regularly until recently.
And suddenly he doesn't train with the first team.

If we continue playing like this
Fred, Matic, Martial, AWB and Lindelof will get injured again.

The club is a shambles and if I was someone like Rashford, I'd want to leave next year.

Don't know who, but someone said Rashford would have scored 30 goals for man city. I can't disagree.

7.) 20 Jan 2020 17:53:37
Rohan garner and levitt have both just come back from injuries mate. Only played one 23s game.

8.) 20 Jan 2020 18:06:12
So rohan if you were were a player you would leave. yeah?
Why hang around as a supporter then?

9.) 20 Jan 2020 18:20:08
Garner has been injured since the Colchester game. He is just getting back to match fitness with the under 23s.

10.) 20 Jan 2020 20:05:07
Garner has played 2 u23 games. and been back for nearly 2 weeks.
We have no midfield.
McTominay makes the bench when he's half fit.
And a almost fit Garner doesn't.

And Gomes and Chong who were training with the reserves are suddenly now first teamers.

They have no plan.



11 Aug 2019 07:38:53
The season is here!

To see the players walk out with the red shirt.

To hear our faithful sing their heart out ๐Ÿ’“

To listen to the roars when each player is announced.

To see one of our legends in the tactical.

To witness our own young lads get their chance.

To feel the goosebumps to the eruption of Stretford end on every goal.

To experience the tears of joy for our beloved club.

Can't wait for it to begin.

1.) 11 Aug 2019 14:50:48
Very poetic mate.



09 Aug 2019 10:13:22
Not sure if I posted this with me network error.

To Ed033, I guess you are the tech guy, I wanted to request if its not too much it would be great if we had a link to Ed001's latest podcast near the big red button. With the amount of posts in the site Ed's podcast quickly moves to 2nd or third page and posters like me form different time zone might miss it. Would understand if not possible.

{Ed047's Note - it came through and I tagged it for ed033 mate so he may not have had a chance to look at it yet.

1.) 09 Aug 2019 17:46:23
Thank you ed033 you are a wizard ๐Ÿ˜‡.

{Ed033's Note - ok thanks



09 Aug 2019 05:01:56
Just been going through all the signings of our rivals, let's not kid ourselves top 4 is going to be really tough.

I am not writing us off in fact I am really excited to see how we do this season. New style of play, attacking football, we are going to see some of our kids get their chances as well. We shall take one game at a time. Roll on Sunday ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ

We are Manchester United we never ever give up atleast not before the season starts ๐Ÿ˜‚. GGMU.

1.) 09 Aug 2019 08:04:01
TheRivian, yes our rivals have made some signings but you also need to take into account that players from outside PL rarely settle in straight away, most need an entire season and others never settle in to make a mark.

I do agree with the rest of your post and the team does always setup to win games and as you say "one game at a time".



07 Aug 2019 09:42:50
Where is all this no Eriksen news coming from? According to AS we have agreed personal terms and trying to agree on a fee with spurs. Not saying its true but let's just wait till tomorrow evening and stay positive. We have already addressed two important weakness in squad. Any more signings in midfield or forward will be great and put us in a better position but its not all doom and gloom if no more signing.

{Ed002's Note - I would not always believe what you read - they may be talking out of their AS.}

1.) 07 Aug 2019 10:38:46
Ed002 :)

2.) 07 Aug 2019 10:39:24
Love it Ed002 :-)

3.) 07 Aug 2019 10:51:32
i though eriksen always said he wanted to go to spain.

4.) 07 Aug 2019 10:52:23
Ed - nice.

To the best of your knowledge do you think we will sign anyone or do you think out business for this summer is done?

Thank you in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

5.) 07 Aug 2019 10:57:24
Ha. very clever reply from Ed002 ๐Ÿ˜‚.

6.) 07 Aug 2019 11:01:14
Anyone get the feeling Ed002 canโ€™t wait for thursday 8PM.

7.) 07 Aug 2019 11:21:32
Oh no 8pm thought it was 5pm.

8.) 07 Aug 2019 11:27:20
Ed ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚.

9.) 07 Aug 2019 12:44:34
it is 5PM. thursday the 8th.

28 hours 15 minutes.

10.) 07 Aug 2019 15:21:19
Really should have worded that question better! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

11.) 07 Aug 2019 17:37:22
Ed002 was instrumental in the Premier League moving the transfer deadline forward.

If the latest 65m plus add on bid from inter is true it would be sensible to accept it. But it would be so difficult to do anything on one day ๐Ÿ˜œ.

Sounds sensible ken. even without considering matic our mid field is so week. when we played with Andreas and Fred we were outrun in the midfield. mctominay and Fred seem to come good in some matches but we rely too much on them. same as when martial/ rash gets injured we rely too much on the kid Greenwood it's important to address both these area. but the most important thing is to move Pogba asap. we really don't want to drag till next summer end and be a major problem incoming transfer plans.
