Cavani coming on a 2 year deal apparently. will be announced soon!
make of that what you will. 🤷‍♂️.




03 Oct 2020 13:52:40
Sancho not in the Dortmund squad for today. every time the hope fades we get sucked back in 🤣 he's probably still sick but that won't stop the rumour mill for the next 2 days 🙏.


1.) 03 Oct 2020 14:00:03
It will be a bad ass coincidence for every United fan 😭😭😭.

2.) 03 Oct 2020 14:11:20
SSN reported last night that he wouldn't be playing today, so that is no surprise.



02 Oct 2020 21:30:12
Telles deal looking unlikely now also (telegraph) 🤯🤦‍♂️.


1.) 02 Oct 2020 22:40:00
looks like lvg was right then. now on to third choice.

2.) 02 Oct 2020 23:10:22
Rojo? 😂.

3.) 02 Oct 2020 23:10:38
Maybe utd will wait and sign him for free in January?

4.) 02 Oct 2020 23:15:51
Don’t think he can come for free in January, we could sign a pre contract for the summer but that’s not much use to us for this season 🤷‍♂️.

5.) 02 Oct 2020 23:29:17
at the end of the season. dose not help us this season.



02 Oct 2020 13:48:58
Smalling deal on the rocks now according to Di marzio. looked like he was gone but now not so sure. not only is that a blow to us as it will probably affect incomings but it must be hard on Smalling also especially at this late stage in the window. unlike others who appear to be happy collecting a pay cheque and not playing he seems eager to play and enjoy his career, sad if he isn't afforded that opportunity elsewhere especially as he isn't in ole's plans.


1.) 02 Oct 2020 14:09:13
I think he'll still go an hour ago Di Marzio was reporting all was good and the deal was going ahead.

Hopefully we can sell/ loan Jones or rojo to Fulham or Newcastle who seem to be struggling for centre back signings I might be a bit hopeful.

2.) 02 Oct 2020 15:23:23
Its hard on the player. If he wants to move the club should be doing all they can to facilitate that.

3.) 02 Oct 2020 16:28:25
To be honest for me the bigger incompetence is not allowing or being able to move players out of the club rather than failing to bring them in.

When attempting to sign a player there are a lot of factors that could derail attempts. Cost, availability, injury, other clubs competing for the player, transfer fees, agents fees, player demands, taxes etc. All things that can hinder bringing a player in.

Yet when the club has at least 10 players who either want to leave or would be open to leaving. Players the club doesn't use from a playing perspective. Then the club should be doing all they can to move those players on. They take up a significant proportion of the wage bill, thus hindering bringing other players in. They block talented youth players from playing and developing. While their value only decreases.

I think this is where the bankers mentality differs from a Director of Football's mentality. In any other form of business, you don't sell your assets below what the business values them at. If you have a property that is worth £2m then you don't sell it for less than that. Yet footballers decrease in value whereas property tends to increase. So there is no point keeping them, besides their value cannot be ascertained by a simple equation.

They are worth only what another club will pay for them. End of.

While if they aren't playing then you have an asset that costs a huge amount in wages not actually performing any function.

Romero, Joel Pereira, TFM, Rojo, Jones, Smalling, Dalot, Andreas Pereira, Lingard, Ighalo all need to go. Bailly as well long term as he just can't stay fit. Can Tuanzebe stay fit? If so will he prove good enough? Grant, Matic and Mata have only 1-2 more years left in them. Pogba doesn't want to be here, there handling means we are either going to have to give him a huge wage rise, or left an £89m asset leave for free.

Forget failing to sign Sancho, not clearing the decks and moving on these players is a bigger financial drain and upper management balls up than anything else.

This messing around over the Smalling deal.

4.) 02 Oct 2020 17:30:46
You don't half go on Shappy jesus.

5.) 02 Oct 2020 18:33:49
That's because he thinks he's the CEO, CFO, DOF, coach, manager and dinner lady all rolled into one.

Shappy knows everything and everything he says is gospel. All hail the all seeing all knowing king of bs.

6.) 02 Oct 2020 18:55:29
Jamal, more like a God than a King.

7.) 02 Oct 2020 19:04:52

What value do your posts add to this site DanJames and JamalSanchez?

8.) 02 Oct 2020 19:14:43
Nice one Shappy 😂.

9.) 02 Oct 2020 19:35:13
good post shappy.

10.) 02 Oct 2020 19:51:43
Good well thought out post as always Shappy, ignore the lovely lads replying.

11.) 02 Oct 2020 20:02:40
Much harder to compose a decent post, Shaps, than snipe from the sidelines.

12.) 02 Oct 2020 20:26:02
So, if we value Sancho at 100mil, Dortmund should just sell him to us, because "player is worth what another club will pay for him"?

13.) 02 Oct 2020 21:14:11
Trololo, if Dortmund want to sell then yes. But Sancho is a key member of their team and they would prefer to keep him.

Phil Jones and Jadon Sancho are very different players, in very different positions at their club's.

Yet the idea that a player is only worth what someone will pay for them holds true. Sancho will be worth what he gets sold for, either this summer or next.

14.) 02 Oct 2020 21:24:19
The point shappy made Trololo is that if the player is surplus to requirements and you want to shift them then they are only worth what people will pay so its better to accept and move on.
The difference with sancho is that BD are not that pushed on shifting him so if their price is not meet they get to keep a high performing player.
I think that's what shappy is saying and i agree.
Redman writes well considered posts and gets instant snipes also. They have thick skin as do i and many others. When you are opinionated there will always be snipes its a banter site. Some jokes don't come across and can look snide without any tone of voice.
I know shappy well enough to know he laughs at most of the negative snipes he gets. I also know he has great passion and puts a lot of thought and effort into his posts even though he is more flip flip than Gandhi's sandals😂.

15.) 02 Oct 2020 22:49:34
Fair play to you Shaps. Considering the amount of snide comments you get on your posts, I don't think I've ever seen you respond in kind.

{Ed025's Note - hes above that noucamp, and fair play to him mate..

16.) 03 Oct 2020 11:34:05
I do understand what you wanted to say, but it isn't that simple. Maybe we should take Telles as an example then? On his way out, less contract time than Smalling, close to his age. If we should let Smalling go for, let's say 15 mil, should Porto lower their price as well? Since we don't value Telles at 20 either? Smalling had a very good season, his price is fair, I don't agree we should lower it. I do agree that we should somehow give Rojo, Jones and Lingard, for free even, but not Smalling.

17.) 03 Oct 2020 17:50:31
No Trololo, because again, Porto don't really want to sell him.

Porto have a choice, they can sell for less than they value him for, or they can hold out for their valuation and risk losing him on a free in a year.

They may feel that they can afford to replace him better in a years time, even without getting a fee for him. Or they may think we'll sign someone else instead, and that he'll then be willing to sign a new contract.

Either way, it's still a different situation to Smalling, who we actually want to get rid of.

18.) 04 Oct 2020 07:53:30
Thorne, well, Porgo does want to sell him, the reason is irrelevant. They want to earn some money, rather than letting him go for free next season. No one wants to pay what they ask, so is he worth only what we offer?
Sure, we want to get rid of him, but not for any price given. Do you see difference between Jones and Smalling? No one wants Jones, and Smalling has several takers. that's why we are selling Smalling instead of Jones, because someone actually wants him.
Anyway, my point is that "player is worth what a club is willing to pay" isn't all that simple.



29 Sep 2020 15:59:54
Apparently we are in talks with both cavani and jovic on loan? Any truth to this Ed?


{Ed002's Note - Edison Cavani (S) Atletico Madrid see Cavani as an 12 month solution to get the striker role sorted out but the cost is seen by them as huge. Inter Milan have had a discussion with a third party but can only offer "50%" of the salary requested but it is possible if the player makes financial concessions. Roma are also interested but again the wages are an issue. Napoli could offer an option. He has also been offered to two London clubs and perhaps other English sides. As a Free Agent he can demand a significant signing on fee as well.

Luca Jovic (S) was being offered to Napoli as part of the deal for Ruiz but had a broken heel to recover from first and now Real Madrid will not be looking to major signings this summer having "delayed" four signings to next summer. Roma (having lost out on their two preferred choices), Inter and Milan will likely fight it out and offer Real Madrid some complicated deal invloving an initial loan. Benfica opted for Luca Waldschmidt.}

1.) 29 Sep 2020 16:46:52
Thanks for the detailed info ed002 very much appreciated 👍.

2.) 29 Sep 2020 16:54:46
Hey Ed.
Any truth in the rumours of a Late push for Pogba from Real Madrid?

Could we turn to a part exchange with Jovic and then sign Saul?

A lot of negotiations to be done in a week though.

Thanks for your input.

{Ed002's Note - No Jonny. You have drifted in to some fantasy world.}

3.) 29 Sep 2020 19:59:30
Lol poor Johnny, can he be rescued from this fantasy land in time for deadline day.

4.) 29 Sep 2020 20:11:36
Figured so already.
There was a glimmer of hope when I read the jovic fir pogba rumour.
Thanks for waking me so gently 😂.

Was unable to watch the game tonight as I'm moving house and just checked the score. that was a shock for sure, I'd have been happy with a point. Couple of questions for those who did watch, how did the team perform in the 5-3-2 and how did telles play? (I'm a big fan of his)



1.) 20 Oct 2020 22:50:56
I thought every player in the back 5 played fantastic and Telles looked great going forward and didn't do anything wrong defensively (but always hard to tell when someone plays WB) .

Wan Bissaka and Tuanzebe handled Mbappe and Neymar all game. If Tuanzebe can keep fit there's no doubting he should be keeping his place.

2.) 20 Oct 2020 23:42:50
Why it was a shock Tim? that's the kind of games that suits us, we made a record of away wins scoring 2+ goal in each match. We are better away, 3 at the back suits us and double pivot without Pogba gives us stability. Furthermore Pari had some unavailable players and they are not in good condition. I know results at Ligue 1 says otherwise but what's the standard of Valencien Trua Montpelier and Dizon?

3.) 21 Oct 2020 01:30:52
We were solid in the 5-3-2. The left side was balanced. Shaw looked comfortable as a LCB, less running required of him, and he defended well, and Telles looked good on the ball as the LWB, and his crossing is a major upgrade. Also, he whips in a consistent corner with a lot of bend. Very good debut.



17 Oct 2020 21:56:30
Decent performance, great result and a confidence booster for Harry. Mata excellent just a pity he isn't 5 years younger. Well done lads, after that shocking start they kept at it and got the job done. Thanks for not ruining my Saturday 👍

Enjoy the rest of the weekend everyone 🙏👍.


1.) 17 Oct 2020 22:08:12
Really enjoyed that Tim. Mata is class, can still do a job for us this season. McTominay looked solid, VDB and Pogba looked like they could link well in midfield.
With McTominay dripping back into a 3 and Telles coming into the team, we could have our system for the PSG game.
Cavani would’ve had a couple tonight if he were up top, Rashford still has a lot of work to do on decision making and finishing.
Fair play Maguire too, could’ve had a couple tonight. He looked like he pulled up towards the end though.

2.) 17 Oct 2020 22:16:59
Mata is pure class.

3.) 17 Oct 2020 22:45:00
Thought shaw did well tonight. I’ve been a big critic but credit due where it’s due. Well done to harry aswell. Still room for improvement but was decent for most parts. Well played de gea also. A goal there and the whole game changes.

Mata, donny, Bruno linking up was a joy. Anyone else notice how much better we look when donny comes on?

4.) 17 Oct 2020 23:16:00
Yip Donny is a great player and is so clever on the ball. Hope he gets a start soon, he deserves it and his quality has shown even in the short time he has been on the pitch.



17 Oct 2020 19:14:23
Not sure what to make of that starting 11. Certain players have been dropped but others not. And the players we thought would get in the starting lineup didn't 🤷‍♂️🤦‍♂️.




13 Oct 2020 21:38:52
Cristiano Ronaldo tested positive for C.V. 19. Speedy recovery and hopefully not too serious 🙏
As a result of this there are a few reports that Bruno could have to quarantine when he returns to the uk and therefore miss our next 4 games. Does anyone know if this is correct? Surely if Bruno tests negative then he can play?


1.) 13 Oct 2020 22:08:43
It will be difficult for football to exist on an even pegging as long as C.V. is with us. There will be teams missing top players competing against full strength squads. But more than that, its mad to have footballers flying everywhere with international football to return to their clubs when I'm effectively told not to travel to see my elderly mother. Makes no sense to me.

2.) 13 Oct 2020 23:41:04
Bit wierd he played on sunday night, tested positive for C. V 19 but none of his teammates tested positive afterwards when they were all incontact with him.

3.) 14 Oct 2020 07:19:07
Remi I agree it’s ridiculous that international football matches are going ahead. Some of them friendlies as well.

Internationals seem pointless at the best of times. Now clubs across Europe are facing fixture congestion it seemed a logical choice to reduce the number of international fixtures during this season.

4.) 14 Oct 2020 07:49:58
Football in general is pointless atm. No crowds, the games aren't entertaining, high scoring glorified practice matches is basically all they are, £15 ppv games a disgrace, VAR still a farce, refs making up then changing rules as they go along and then we add to that players going away all over the world to play friendlies having to isolate left, right and centre because one player has the virus, we have the govt totally inept at dealing with it, C.V. lurking at 21.59 to go into bars but your safe sat down obvs, all in all its absolutely pathetic.

5.) 14 Oct 2020 08:52:11
Without detailed knowledge I would imagine C.V. like nearly all virial C.V.s will have an incubation period where you have the C.V. in a very small quantity and it is developing/ growing in quantity within your system.

However, nearly all tests require a certain amount of the virus to be present, you can have the virus but due to it not being at that threshold yet you would return a negative test result.

Whether you can shed the C.V. while harbouring such a low quantity will still be uncertain. However, I would imagine it would be entirely possible to have a test in the evening that comes back negative, have no contact with anyone then have a second test the following morning which comes back positive. All due to the virus multiplying in number in your system overnight.

Football only has two options. Either shut down until such a time comes that a vaccine has been found, or try and get on with it as best possible.

Fortunately top level football has access to the best healthcare, and has the finances to test regularly. All they can do is test players as often as possible, maintain a bubble as best possible, and adhere to best practice when it comes to cleanliness.

6.) 14 Oct 2020 09:33:10
Aaron Connelly flew from the UK to Ireland, to Bratislava. Was found to be in close contact with a positive case so was flew back to Dublin then the UK. Now that case was a false positive so he flies from the UK to Dublin to Helsinki for tonights game.

7.) 14 Oct 2020 10:50:03
I think you can still test positive upto 5 days after a negative test that's why you are asked to immediately self isolate if someone is positive you have been in contact with. That selfie picture having lunch shows how close everyone has been to Ronaldo i will be amazed if others are not positive

Stay safe people 😷😷.

8.) 14 Oct 2020 12:26:29

I’ve heard some arguments about football recently but the games not being entertaining definitely hasn’t been one of them. The last day of premier league action was one of the best in years, as a united fan it wasn’t great but as a neutral it must have been fantastic to watch. It’s crap that we can’t go but I don’t think you can argue that it has been boring.

9.) 14 Oct 2020 13:04:37
GDS2, the fact there is loads of goals don't mean its entertaining, its just practice match vibes, can't say uniteds game was entertainment, it was like watching 2 elevens play at a training pitch in attack v defence, most games with shed load of goals but low on actually quality in most I've seen, think Leeds v City was a good entertaining game, most have been like practice matches in souless empty stadia imo.

10.) 14 Oct 2020 15:20:55
Watching united is boring for sure. Intl week brought more excitement.
Lots of goals but not much excitement in the epl. United are boring to watch. Ole is boring. I think he is sucking the life out of the squad and the club.
No crowds make the games dull imo. Tempo is poor. Last 10 mins of most games are like testimonials.
Our 3 2 v Brighton was not exciting despite the goals and last few mins on the whole as a united fan it was torture to watch.

11.) 14 Oct 2020 17:05:17
I think the games look good as MotD highlights, lots of goals and goalmouth action. Yet actually watching the games themselves in their entirety is a far lesser experience since the stadiums lost the fans and the atmosphere.

There isn't a buzz on the pitch, games for the most part are more sterile and played at a slower pace. Goals are celebrated more like a goal scored in pre-season than with the sheer joy and excitement we would normally see.

What this highlights for me is the real value and importance having passionate fans in the stadium bring to the quality and the value of the football on show. Clubs and those in charge of football should take note, that TV money would be better spent if it was subsidising the cost of a ticket. So that the cost of going to the game was dramatically reduced and we could see full stadiums every week.

If clubs knew for example that the percentage of empty seats at homes games over the season would be averaged out then that percentage was deducted from that clubs TV money and given to lower league clubs instead then you would see a big drop off in ticket prices.

If over the course of the season on average your stadium was 12% empty and that meant that you lost 12% of the TV money that year clubs would drop their ticket prices quicker than a £10 hooker drops her knickers.

For the good of the game we need full stadiums, while that can't be achieved currently for obvious reasons, the current lack of fans should highlight their importance to to football "product" of the EPL.



13 Oct 2020 20:35:56
Just want to say to everyone on here take care and be safe, no matter where you are in the world these are challenging times, look after yourself and your families and hopefully we all come out of this C.V. healthy and strong 💪👍🙏.

I agree with the above, though i'm not sure Ole has the guts to drop certain players even when they clearly need it. He said after the Spurs debacle that things would change, either mentality, tactics or formation. let's see if he backs that statement up. As for the game itself i'm not sure we can call any game a should win and 3 points, not the way we are currently playing and with morale through the floor.

Im hoping for a performance and 3 points, but its more hope than expectation. Hope the lads bounce back!

Was just thinking that, maybe it’s time to leave him out for a few weeks and go with a combination of Bailly, Lindelof and tuanzebe. Maguire although not everyone’s cup of tea was never this bad and he looks completely broken mentally. He played every game last year and then he the Greece incident and I think he needs time to recover. Ole should take him in and explain it’s for his own good, as we don’t want to damage his confidence any further. We have huge games coming up an everyone needs to be right both physically and mentally, maguire would be a huge handicap in his current form. Hopefully a few weeks away will help him recover, refocus and come back stronger. Just not sure ole has the strength to do what needs to be done for the good of both Harry and united.
