So Tuanzebe, Greenwood, Romero and Fred are set to start on Friday per Ole's press conference.


1.) 18 Sep 2019 15:14:31
Gutted for them as the rest of the team play thursday.

2.) 18 Sep 2019 15:19:27
Very good, TB 😂.

3.) 18 Sep 2019 15:21:05
TopBomin - LOL. had me laughing into my coffee.

but seriously i hope we see Gomes and Chong too from the start. No James so Chong could start left. Gomes in at 10 and Lingard right

Fred and Scott.

And then an English back 4 with Romero in goal.

4.) 18 Sep 2019 15:57:09
The match commences at 12.30 AM on Friday morning here in India TB :)

5.) 18 Sep 2019 16:57:20
Ah touche True Red, touche.

6.) 18 Sep 2019 19:21:56
Who’s starting on Thursday? 😉.

7.) 23 Sep 2019 00:34:26
That’s one way to tell people they are playing without actually having to play them 😂.



01 Aug 2019 17:52:09
Maguire left out of squad in friendly.
Looks like United have finally wrapped him up.


1.) 01 Aug 2019 19:48:07
A manikin is a slight improvement on smalling and jones tbh, there is a fantastic thread from @alexLUHS on twitter about him very funny.



30 Jul 2019 10:42:16
Journalist Fabrizio Romano reporting Maguire and Dybala will be United players soon.
Nicolas Pepe to Arsenal it seems.


1.) 30 Jul 2019 11:03:31
Will he be a Gervinho or a Wiltord?



29 Jul 2019 11:13:28
Rumours gathering that Real Madrid have tabled a massive 145m offer for Pogba.


1.) 29 Jul 2019 14:09:40
You appear to have an exclusive that nobody else has heard some three hours after your post.

2.) 29 Jul 2019 15:03:09
Scooby I have seen this reported too so TRD isn't alone.

3.) 29 Jul 2019 15:44:40
Fair enough. I shall keep my eyes and ears open because I haven't seen anything and if it were true I'd expect the press to be all over it. That said I'm definitely not ITK.

4.) 29 Jul 2019 15:48:19
Just found it. The Sun and The Express. Clearly reliable sources. :) )



23 Jul 2019 13:54:13
SMS rumours intensifying.


1.) 23 Jul 2019 15:07:38
Fingers crossed!

2.) 23 Jul 2019 15:23:03
That means, Pogba`s Off to!

3.) 23 Jul 2019 15:29:24
Are they? Wouldn't take much notice after Fernandes has been having a medical for weeks and the same for Maguire 😂.

4.) 23 Jul 2019 15:54:53
Domino effect about to kick in I for one hope SMS is coming to replace Pogba would suit the style OGS is trying to implement a lot more I think.

5.) 23 Jul 2019 15:56:24
I believe the Oxford dictionary states that 'intensifying' can now mean a random rumour off a highly regarded but never seen before football scout on Twitter, who also happens to be 11 years old and goes by the name of Agent Enrique.

6.) 23 Jul 2019 16:02:40
Apparently MUFC have almost agreed a £67million deal to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio on a five year deal. I shall wait and hope. Which I suspect means somebody might be in for Pogba.

7.) 23 Jul 2019 17:31:49
What or who are the sources for Milinkovic-Savic?

8.) 23 Jul 2019 17:32:49
You mean like we signed Maguire?

9.) 23 Jul 2019 18:01:25
Probably not signing many more and giving the kids a chance.

10.) 23 Jul 2019 18:48:51
WRD quite a few sources are running the story on SMS but I believe the original source came from L. A. REPUBLIICA a rome based publication don't know how credible they are tho.

11.) 24 Jul 2019 01:24:55
If i'm not mistaken Gaitan and Sneijder have been having medicals at carrington for over 10 years already.

12.) 24 Jul 2019 06:35:03
SMS could mean

Sean longstaff
Some body else 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣.

13.) 24 Jul 2019 08:51:10
SMS, Longstaff, Maguire and Fernandes.
What a transfer window that would be.

14.) 24 Jul 2019 16:02:31
I think we would be doing very well to get SMS Maguire Longstaff OR
Fernandes Maguire Longstaff in at this late stage.

I can only see SMS + Fernandes joining if both Pogba and Lukaku are sold.
To me that's looking less likely.

15.) 24 Jul 2019 17:24:03
Starting to think we are not in for Fernandes maybe looking at Savic as our ACM.

16.) 24 Jul 2019 19:44:13
I wish we just get rid of Pogba and buy both I've got a horrible feeling Pogba will be staying 1 more year and well end up with longstaff.
If we want top 4 we need fernandes or SMS at a minimum not a guy who's played 9 games and coming off a serious injury it just screams alarm bells to me.

Hi Ed002.
Considering the injuries and lack of cover in the striker's position, do you think United would look at Mandzukic or anybody else in the January window?


{Ed002's Note - Mandzukic would be a great way to throw more money away. I am not sure what injuries you are referring to.}

1.) 30 Sep 2019 12:30:57
We still have a pretty big squad, quality is obviously not there, more clear out is needed, with 2/ 3 quality additions needed every summer.

Adding mandzukic would be putting a sticking plaster over a stab wound.

Also if the scouts could scout players who can pass a football properly, that would help.

2.) 30 Sep 2019 12:53:58
I would have been tempted to get an year out of him.
Seeing Lingard as the striker while chasing the game against West Ham was depressing.

3.) 30 Sep 2019 13:08:48
I think what Ole said in his press conference was interesting. They couldn't get the striker they wanted and they didn't want a short term solution but someone who will be here for the long haul.

Now looking at who we were linked with maybe someone like Mousa Dembele from Lyon might be a better bet.

4.) 30 Sep 2019 13:21:49
Shappy that sounds great. So if we get mandzukic, what does that mean?

5.) 30 Sep 2019 13:47:14
It means the medical staff are confident that Mandzukic can play on at the top level until he's 40.

On a serious note, I think Mandzukic was explored as a possible signing but the club never pushed through. Maybe because they wanted a longer term option. Personally I think Mandzukic could have done a solid job for a year to 18 months. I think Ole was hoping the one of Rashford or Martial might step up. They still might, injuries have disrupted their start to the season. With an injury free run they might kick on.

Both have the potential to be top players, yet I feel Rashford is more suited to being a wide forward as his shooting isn't clinical enough. While Martial is coolness personified in front of goal, but he needs to improve his off the ball movement and work rate.

6.) 30 Sep 2019 14:12:14
I'd avoid Mandzukic. Buying old players on big wages is not the way forward.

7.) 30 Sep 2019 14:21:49
If you wanted someone with exp then Lewa wouldve been the one but we have no chance with that.

8.) 30 Sep 2019 14:23:11
Apparently Mandzukic's current wages are 87k per week. In which case if we were matching that then I wouldn't worry too much.

9.) 30 Sep 2019 15:14:47
It wouldn't match the noise coming from OGS though.

10.) 30 Sep 2019 17:20:41
When was the last time united managed to get a player signed near there current wage? Were more likely going to give him a handsome payrise.

11.) 30 Sep 2019 17:49:12
I’m a bit confused Shappy.

After Lukaku was sold, Ole said that one of the reasons was Lukaku would have blocked Greenwood’s first team opportunities. Is the hypothesised new striker not going to block Greenwood, or was Ole lying back then?



24 Sep 2019 12:52:28
United announce record revenues.
Pay rise for Woody? :)


1.) 24 Sep 2019 13:20:20
Here's even more good news TRD

Woodward on Director of Football, “We’re continuing to look at this, but the players we’ve signed this summer show our way of recruitment is the right one. ”.

2.) 24 Sep 2019 13:07:20
Its business first, then football.
Priorities TRD.

3.) 24 Sep 2019 13:38:15
£120m net transfer spend over the last two seasons.

Failed to secure several key targets this summer.

Lack of quality and depth in the squad.

Struggling to stay in the top 6 on current form.

Club is still making record profits = zero chances of changing tact.

Ole - cheering from the sidelines.

Priorities TRD.



26 Aug 2019 07:30:59
Yet again, we are starting to judge players and the manager on game to game basis.

It will take time to develop understanding between the players and the position they play.
There are changes almost in all the areas of the pitch when compared to last season.
Martial is playing for the first time as a centre forward, Mctominay as first choice DM, Pogba moved to right side of midfield, fresh centre back pairing, new Right full back and a winger.
It is obvious they need to play more games together to develop and evolve as a team.


1.) 26 Aug 2019 09:28:29
Well said, but the preseason was to address this to an extent.

2.) 26 Aug 2019 09:24:51
One player you didn't mention is lingard who is not being judged on a game by game basis, for this whole calendar year he has been severely unproductive. He has to be dropped even at this early stage of the season. Mata, greenwood or gomes should come in for southampton

There is too much pressure on rashford and martial to shoulder the goalscoring burden at the moment. We need a third and fourth option to divert defences attention especially when they defend in a low block which inevitably created the space to create chances and score goals.

City have 5 quality options on the pitch at any one time, liverpool have three quality options and spurs have 4 on the pitch at any one time. Even arsenal once pepe, lacazette and aubameyang play together will have three quality options on the pitch to overload defences.

3.) 26 Aug 2019 10:16:39
The planning and execution of transfers as well as sorting out the situations of Lukaku/ Pog/ Sanchez were poorly dealt with.

We signed Maguire in the last week of the window.
Sold our top scorer again in the last week and didn't replace him. The board left it too late to resolve all these issues and left the squad in limbo without a creative midfielder and a RW which we were all craving for.

4.) 26 Aug 2019 10:39:33
Agree DSG.
Just imagine Bruno or Maddison at no 10 and someone like Sancho on RW. The team would have been prefect.

5.) 26 Aug 2019 12:59:00
Perfect? Come on trd. Perfect😂😂😂😂.

6.) 26 Aug 2019 13:41:51
Those 2 players would have addressed the most glaring deficiencies in the squad Ken :)

7.) 26 Aug 2019 15:51:07
Because every player we sign does really well and never has a bad game.

8.) 26 Aug 2019 15:55:18
Like fred and Sanchez did?



21 Aug 2019 09:28:43
Does anyone else think Crystal Palace will receive a bashing this week?

It will be the perfect game to start Greeenwood on the right side of attack.
James should come on as an impact sub and slot in on either wing.
We must be patient with him considering the last game was his first ever EPL start.


1.) 21 Aug 2019 16:30:52
Lingard is just another example of a pretty average English player bein talked up way above his station by pundits simply because he's English .

See also Welbeck . I remember Scholes saying that LVG should'nt have sold him, somebody pointed out Welbeck's scoring record and Scholes said ' everybody knows Danny's not a goalscorer', but still thought he should be playing in the front three for one of the biggest clubs in Europe .

2.) 22 Aug 2019 07:44:03
bilko do you find yourself embarrassed or frustrated to find you posted in the wrong topic and should have posted the comment to the previous conversation? >.

Is there a link to AJH's prediction competition?
I think I missed to enter.


1.) 12 Aug 2019 11:43:43
What competition? We get to predict each match?

2.) 12 Aug 2019 13:32:23
Trd ajh didn't do it this season.

3.) 12 Aug 2019 18:52:11
oh. was really looking forward to it.
Darn T Tony.

He is rightfully disgusted.
We are short of a prolific goal scorer.

Declan Rice is improving with every game.
Tenacious, ball winner and his ability on the ball is getting better and better.
But WestHam would ask for a ridiculous price.

I believe our team needs Mandzukic right now albeit for short term.
Our season will get ruined if we still place our hopes on injury prone/ inexperienced forwards.

Yeah replace Pogba with Saul Niguez.
It would immediately step up the quality of midfield.

If we can convince a player about a good project, they will probably join. However, we may have to offer higher wages to beat competition.

Danny. If they take those wages, they should work their ass off.
But what do we have?
Players with attitude problems and donkeys with little work ethic.

DSG, I believe we can develop McTominay into a solid DM.
He is 6ft 4, can dominate players, has loads of energy and tenacity.

Other than him, only Declan Rice springs to mind to play the holding role.
Another player with huge potential who will walk into our team.

A midfield of Saul Niguez, Maddison and McTominay would be immense.
