Mandzukic and William's the 2 names in the frame.

1.) 08 Aug 2019 08:44:57
Mandzukic would be really sensible in my opinion:

- back up striker
- plan B in terms of a physical presence
- still a really good finisher
- hard worker
- great professional for the likes of Greenwood to learn from for a season or two

Get this once done, Ole!

2.) 08 Aug 2019 08:57:06
Fernandes doesn't seem Tottenham bound, they seem to be signing Dybala, Lo Celso and Sessegnon. Leaves the door open if the club meet the asking price.

3.) 08 Aug 2019 09:21:42
Agree Downsie, he's a goalscorer and somebody who can give our other forwards a rest.



02 Aug 2019 17:58:12
Says in various media that Fernandes has told Sporting he wants to leave and left the training ground for a meeting, Spurs seemingly the front runners for him and United interested.
What I read anyway.

1.) 02 Aug 2019 18:50:53
David Amoyal said on his latest podcast that he expects Fernandes to be utd player once the benfica game is done.

2.) 02 Aug 2019 19:31:59
I hope so Moyes.

3.) 02 Aug 2019 20:12:14
I really hope we get him, he looks class. Bit worrying how everywhere is saying we’ve cooled interest and Spurs are sniffing.

4.) 02 Aug 2019 20:36:30
Who is David Amoyal and how reliable his he?

5.) 02 Aug 2019 20:53:17
Marathon - he writes for Di marzio. His podcast is brilliant, and it focuses mainly on Italian football. He’s not someone who writes something for of it. I would say he’s about as reliable as they get, apart from Ed002 of course. I would expect us to wrap up both dybala and Bruno. Again that’s my opinion, but the signs are strong imo. Crazy week ahead!

6.) 02 Aug 2019 21:10:56
Dream window if we end up with Fernandes and Dybala to go with Maguire, AWB and James 🙌🏼.

7.) 02 Aug 2019 21:44:10
Other Italian resources reporting Bruno will be completed Monday after the Portuguese super cup on Sunday. hopefully we will know more by the this time Monday.

However before then we have the much more important matter of a match against AC and our last match before the premier league kicks off. We need a big game and i can't wait.

Come on lads.

8.) 02 Aug 2019 22:31:33
Cheers Park! After all the doom and gloom of last night on this site things are looking up! Adding Fernandes and Dybala to the squad will certainly add quality to the midfield. Strong rumours of Mandzukic being added too. Pogba being left out of the squad for tomorrow suggests he could be sold?

9.) 02 Aug 2019 22:33:25
Sorry, do you have the name of the podcast?

Whilst we are here, can anyone recommend any good podcasts? Football or not.

10.) 02 Aug 2019 23:01:41
Calcioland podcast marathon. Honestly it’s fantastic. Always reasoned views and they get some great guests on. It’s mainly about Serie A but during the transfer window they discuss transfers. He is usually very spot on and doesn’t put out rubbish like other outlets. Definitely give it a listen! It’s really enhanced my interest in Italian football which I believe is such an interesting environment both culturally and football.

{Ed0333's Note - also they don’t mind paying referees off a little bit to win games of soccer

11.) 03 Aug 2019 08:24:18
Marathonred, I listen to the Football Ramble (generally a pretty good laugh, particularly if you like to hear ridiculous Kevin Keegan stories), The Totally Football Show (pretty much just for the nostalgia of hearing James Richardson, they also do Golazzo, the totally Scottish football show and the totally football league show) and Football Weekly.

12.) 03 Aug 2019 09:32:57
Marathonred - Joe Rogan’s podcast if you’re not already on it.



14 Jul 2019 08:25:06
Duncan Castles reporting via a podcast that United have offered £60m upfront with £20m in add ons for Harry Maguire, Leicester want £80m up front.
Also that United have yet to make a bid for Bruno Fernandes.
Not sure how reliable but what I read this morning.

1.) 14 Jul 2019 08:49:01
I don't think you can read a podcast WRD lol.

I think the maguire deal will go through, reports coming out also that he wants the move and leicester won't stand in his way if he makes that clear to them.

Also being reported that club have a policy of focusing on doing one deal at a time for reasons beyond me, that's probably why no bid has gone in for fernandes. Probably want to get a centre back in first.

2.) 14 Jul 2019 09:59:02
You can't be serious about the "one deal at a time" policy. No team does that, it is not Football manager where you can bid and be accepted or rejected the next minute. You can say "well this week we will negotiate Maguire, next week Bruno and next week, oh f. ck the window is closed". United are exploring all of their targets. Official bids are the end product.

3.) 14 Jul 2019 10:12:16
Makes sense as to why with 4 weeks left in the transfer window we still haven’t sold any of the dross and still require a CB, 2X CM and a RW.

4.) 14 Jul 2019 10:27:51
Cant sell players with nobody interested.

5.) 14 Jul 2019 11:25:50
Lol I read the quotes from the podcast I mean.



19 Jun 2019 19:13:49
Lots of reports of £55m wan bissaka done.



06 Jun 2019 08:53:44
Daniel James medical later today according to reports.

1.) 06 Jun 2019 09:34:46
So first signing is wrapped up.

2.) 06 Jun 2019 10:12:00
If all goes well aye. Maybe wishful thinking but looking at some of our supposed targets like Fernandes, Felix, de Ligt, we could see some more movement once the nations league is over.

3.) 06 Jun 2019 10:45:20
Really interesting signing this.

4.) 06 Jun 2019 12:12:39
the first actual winger we have signed since i can remember.

hopefully ole goes to the 4 2 2 2 that's been talked about.

5.) 06 Jun 2019 15:29:31
Bolger, the 2's play centrally to move the ball forward through midfield quickly.

James is best suited to a 433 or 4231 system.

Although I am pleased to see us sign a winger, I hope he can play on the right as well as the left, otherwise this signing will further unbalance the team.

Any truth in the van der Saar interested in united DoF story yday?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what the story is, but have you tried searching?}

1.) 15 Oct 2019 15:33:32
edwin van der sar has said he's "interested" in the director of football post but that he has no experience and is happy at Ajax at the moment.

2.) 15 Oct 2019 17:12:06
He politely kind of shrugged it off by saying he needs more experience in the role.

Don't worry I'm sure we will go for the vastly expirenced Darren Fletcher lol.

3.) 15 Oct 2019 23:59:43
We already have a dof in Woodward and his right hand man.



18 Sep 2019 16:17:56
Lindelof signs new deal.

1.) 18 Sep 2019 17:32:50
Great news.

2.) 18 Sep 2019 17:33:25
Good news.

3.) 18 Sep 2019 19:10:50
Top player. Great news.

4.) 18 Sep 2019 19:22:27
Would have preferred if he turned it down so the tabloids could use the ‘Lindel-off? ’ headline that they’ve been saving.



13 Sep 2019 21:07:10
Injuries and United back together again.



15 Aug 2019 10:30:22
First chance to post since sunday. Well, wasnt expecting that result and we rode our luck at times but 4-0 over a top 4 rival is not to be sniffed at.
Harry Maguire - looks like he's been with us 10 years, I for one was sceltical but he looks so composed and a great presence about him, he has settled well.
AWB - is going to be excellent for us, a top right back and I've no doubts over him at all.
A special mention to Lindelof who also played very well, I've always rated him and I think a settled back line will help him no end.
Luke Shaw - I see s lot of criticism about him on here, no idea where that has come from, he will also benefit from a settled back line.
McTominay- great to see how vocal he is, he epitomises what a united player should be in terms of work rate and passion, he is very underrated too.
Pogba - thought he was quiet mostly but shows what class he does have with that pass, if only he can produce this more often and take games by the scruff, not ideal his future is still hanging over us.
Pereira- nice delivery of a ball, I am unsure if he is at the level we need but again puts a shift in.
Martial and Rashford- these 2 can cause any team issues on the counter attack, we can be lethal in transition like Jose said, I do worry tho against teams that sit deep how we will break them down, this is why it made sense to replace Lukaku with an option B which I don't feel we have. Rash and Martial movement tho was and will be a problem for a lot of teams.
Lingard - movement again seems to be why he is in favour, personally would prefer to see Dan James in the front 3 whose pace will wreak havoc, happy for James goal, his reaction again shows what it should mean to play for united.

Overall we was clinical which is what we have been missing, these younger players are getting that bit older and more composed. Very impressive win but let's not get Carried away, Wolves beat us twice, be interesting to see if Ole has learned from that and can adapt to teams who allow us possession because we seem to be that team who gives up possession and breaks from deep at pace, do we have a plan b.

A side note, unless I've missed it, has DDG agreed and signed his new deal yet? I notice he was captain and imagine he is our captain going forward, deserving imo.

1.) 15 Aug 2019 11:58:53
No WRD he has not signed yet, retorts its was imminent and agreed but as i say to my team. God may be good but get it in writing😂.



07 Aug 2019 18:49:00

{Ed047's Note - you ok Welsh, need an ambulance or anything?

1.) 07 Aug 2019 18:57:05
Sorry Ed, just realised I hate the transfer window more than I thought.

{Ed047's Note - haha I guessed it was a cry of despair Welsh. Soon be over and the football will start. 👍🏼

2.) 07 Aug 2019 19:32:31
Thank the lord.
It's a weird one Ed cz on one hand I'm happy with ddg, awb, Lindelof, Maguire, shaw.
I'm happy that McTominay, Pereira, Gomes, Chong, Greenwood are given chances.
I'm happy that the style of play seems to be high press, fast pace counter.
But there is something in me that is unhappy that apart from our defence I'm really worried.
I don't see anyone getting 20-25 goals or enough to spread all round and I feel our mf is really weak.
Maybe the youth and style will prove me wrong and tbh I am just happy if we can see a style of better football and a direction we are headed in.

{Ed047's Note - it’s almost like you are a total unknown Welsh and not until United walk out on the pitch in those first few games will you really get an idea of what is going to happen.

Ole has pre season under his belt and possibly as you say a style of play but it’s how he adapts to different teams and building a bond in the group which would still appear a little fractious that will be a big factor.

3.) 07 Aug 2019 19:51:01
Very true Ed, lots of ifs, buts and maybes surrounding most things united related atm.

{Ed047's Note - it is mate, I think ole is trying to do all the right things but it’s still such a big job to sort it all out.

Ole was appointed and is our manager so therefore he is the right one and we have to get behind him and the club needs to give him the funds and time to build a squad. Everyone is too impatient, can't rebuild a squad in his model in 1 window, will be a few more windows by we see the squad he ideally wants.

I heard that Phil Jones said 'poor' unsure whether he was talking about a refereeing decision or his teammates (he should be) and Ed turned round and said 'quiet, we are on camera' that's just one story.

As for McKenna, I think the media are loving a United in crisis story so will push anything, wouldn't wprry too much on McKenna.

What I do worry about is why year after year we have so many injuries, it seems to have been every season since van Gaal, perhaps even Moyes time, I dunno if we have players nowadays more like athletes and break down easier or the stricter training we have now is too much for some, no idea.

Was thinking about Martial this morning, he is always injured, can never get a run of games out of him, and he is probably the most key player in the way Ole wants to counter attack, I see a long season of inconsistent results and performances ahead, I can live with that if we see the desire in the players, I have seen that except at west ham which worries me.

Arsenal at home next is probably the perfect fixture to get that desire back and a win wouldn't shock me, hopefully we have some players back for this one.

Saving grace at the moment is Chelsea and Spurs are having equally as bad starts and a win over the gunners keeps us on pace for 4th.

I've said it all along since they sacked Moyes and I'll say it again, we must stick by a manager, we cannot carry on chopping and changing managers, backroom teams, players and playing style, that's why we are in such a mess, it's not going to be pretty for a good while yet but the 3 lads he's brought in are the right type of player, he needs more windows to bring in more players that fits what Ole wants, it's going to take time.

I now hear 'oh we've spent £900m' yes, Ole has had 1 window, the rest is past and we are on a new path, one the club and fans must stick too.

If only it was just that TRD.
Not sure it should be posted on here what is meant to have happened, it's not good, and its destroyed the dressing room at spurs that's for sure.

{Ed001's Note - it is nothing to do with gossip column stuff. The dressing room was a mess anyway. This is about Levy and Poch not being on the same page. They aren't even reading the same book any more.}

Wasnt a penalty for me tbh, this VAR can't even get decisions right when they are being looked at, still opinion based, never been a fan of it and reeks of them not wanting to embarrass their refs by changing decisions, keep it the way it was, ref decisions and his opinion.
