Anyone know who Daniel Harris is?

He seems to think sancho will hand a transfer request in.


1.) 10 Aug 2020 19:06:22
Can’t remember who he writes for, a few places I think and apparently he is reliable though others might need to confirm that.

2.) 10 Aug 2020 20:19:42
In short Tim you don't know🤣🤣.

3.) 10 Aug 2020 23:01:55
Have you been writing Boris’ press releases Tim?

4.) 10 Aug 2020 23:04:33
😂 pretty much. but he writes for the guardian so that’s better than the star or sun.

5.) 11 Aug 2020 11:56:29
Only teasing Tim😂.

6.) 11 Aug 2020 12:49:08
No worries ken. I’m thinking of running for office 😉😂.

7.) 11 Aug 2020 15:33:16
It was a politicians answer alright😂😂 either that or Vikki pollard groom little Britain no but yeah but no but yeah but.

8.) 11 Aug 2020 16:58:42
Far too concise for a Boris press release.

9.) 11 Aug 2020 20:17:04
I’m Dominic Cummings without the lockdown breaking antics 😂.

Manchester United target Jadon Sancho will be staying at Borusia Dortmund next season, according to the Bundesliga club's sporting director Michael Zorc.

"We plan on having Jadon Sancho in our team this season, the decision is final. I think that answers all our questions, " Zorc just told a press conference.

will Woodward buckle.

the only thing that annoys me during the windows is the length of time we spend chasing one player i get its a long process but just tell them a price were willing to pay if not move on.


1.) 10 Aug 2020 16:27:37
So Bolger you wanted to take him in no time? Only way to do this is to pay what they want at first play. So as Ed002 said 120 to Dortmund, 50 at manager plus the Fa etc. The discussions started the time Premier League finished, is it a lot of time for such a huge deal? I woyld say the opposite.

2.) 10 Aug 2020 16:43:10
I read a book on transfers by Daniel Geey, if you want to get past all the stuff written on-line and in the media, its an eye opener. Other books on transfers are available, I think.

3.) 10 Aug 2020 17:01:14
Did they not suggest it’s become a poker game? . This is just a first move. Nearly two months left of the window so this is probably just a tactic to force uniteds hand.



30 Jul 2020 18:03:55
So the rumour doing the rounds is jiminez to us apparently agreed according to reports in Portugal.


1.) 30 Jul 2020 18:30:23
I tried posting that a while ago asking if Ed’s had any observations. At 29 he’s beyond the OGS profile surely?

2.) 30 Jul 2020 19:20:37
I’m sure he will love sitting on the bench each week.

3.) 30 Jul 2020 22:04:16
I’d take Calvert-Lewin instead.

4.) 30 Jul 2020 22:23:14
Calvert Lewin Eric really?

Not really seen much of him.



16 Jan 2020 21:56:07
So according to the mail via a portugese reporter the Fernandes deal is now in doubt because they want 55 million plus bonuses

We are only willing to pay 44 million plus bonuses. how true is anyone's guess

Don't you love the transfer window.


1.) 16 Jan 2020 22:31:23
not with are lot in charge.

2.) 16 Jan 2020 22:41:19
They'll meet at 50mil + add on's, and that's about right.

3.) 16 Jan 2020 22:51:30
It's the summer repeating itself again. How much of the stories are true is anyone's guess but they all set us up to look terrible when he doesn't sign. Be prepared for leaks that the club aren't interested or have moved on to try and lessen the negative press.

4.) 17 Jan 2020 06:48:05
Whatever happens I cannot be the only who remembers the comments in the MEN last summer at the end of the transfer window that UTD didn't move for Bruno Fernandes as the feeling from the coaches/ scouts was he gave the ball away a lot in dangerous areas . strange turnaround now.

5.) 17 Jan 2020 08:52:41
True. The rest of our players in that position don't give it away lots, they never pass it forward so no worries there.

6.) 17 Jan 2020 09:36:36
Shock horror the club tries to negotiate a transfer fee rather than just paying what the selling club ask for.

So many people on here complain that our club repeatedly get taken for a ride and over pay on transfer fees, yet they are also the first to complain when the club actually spends time negotiating a transfer fee.

It's almost like whatever the club does some people will find something to moan about.

7.) 17 Jan 2020 09:54:45
Fernandes wants to move. Sporting need the money. Why would you not negotiate down the asking price. These things take a bit of time but I feel confident United will agree the transfer and we can then all focus on the next player linked.

8.) 17 Jan 2020 10:08:00
The time to negotiate was Maguire, the overrated cb we overpaid for. The time to negotiate is not now, for the player the team direly needs, and not a single supporter I've asked thinks sportings demands are unreasonable in any way.

9.) 17 Jan 2020 10:25:35
Redwhisky well if the supporters you've asked think Sporting's demands aren't unreasonable, then I don't know what our clubs officials are playing at trying to negotiate it down. You really should phone up and complain.

10.) 17 Jan 2020 10:52:37
But surely the negotiations with the clubs could have been done in principle long before the window opened? Bruno wants to come to us. The club need the money. This was established ages ago so why not a simple box ticking and signed in the first week of the window. I don't get why we are only starting to negotiate once the window opens.

11.) 17 Jan 2020 11:01:37
Shock horror Shappy, the club spends the entire summer trying to low ball Sporting but end up without a number 10 and Fernandes signs a new contract.

January comes around like groundhog day and we're at it again. What is the quote about the definition of insanity again?

It’s almost as if the club don’t learn from mistakes and that they’re creating an aversion to doing business with us.

12.) 17 Jan 2020 11:33:56
RA87, fact of the matter is we are lowballing yet again. Amateur at best, 002 is rarely wrong and I think this only proves his opinion further.

13.) 17 Jan 2020 15:01:48
I can see the melt down on here if this transfer isn't made. I know it's frustrating for some posters when transfers take time but we are not preview to what goes on. Yes it's true Ed2 gives us impeccable information when it comes to players the club is interested in but he also informs us that he can't give us the timing or blow by blow updates on when transfers are to be completed. So all we can do is continue to wait.

14.) 17 Jan 2020 23:29:13
Ed002 has explained the Fernandes situation on numerous occasions.

United want the player.
The player is happy to come.
Sporting have set a price.
United unwilling to match it and keep offering less.

It’s not too complicated to understand. The transfer is being held up since the summer because United, despite all evidence to the contrary, think they can magically get Sporting to accept a lower offer.

Pay up or move onto another target. It’s amateur behaviour and just embarrassing at this stage.



26 Jul 2019 23:15:46
Juve willing to offer dybala for lukaku.

Would snap there hands off.


{Ed004's Note - So would I. Would be a fantastic deal but I just cant see it happening}

1.) 26 Jul 2019 23:29:57
It's got to be sky talking nonsense again surely? Ask yourself, if you're Juventus, with Cristiano Ronaldo up front, why on earth would you want Lukaku? Even to play alongside Ronaldo, his passing, movement and technique just wouldn't be up to scratch. Maybe a rumour put out there to put pressure on Inter?

{Ed004's Note - Lukaku does like to run behind the opoosition back line which could create a lot of room for Ronaldo to opperate in. Still think Ronaldo is better coming off the wing rather than being a target man. Not sure Lukaku suits Sarri ball though}

2.) 26 Jul 2019 23:30:43
Reports from Italy that we have agreed a fee for Bruno fernandes as well honestly I'll be glad when this transfer windows over its just lie after lie.

3.) 26 Jul 2019 23:45:12
Lukaku his style of play tbf to him would tear the italian league up

I like lukaku I just don't think we suit the way he plays

But if it's TRUE and juve want to do a swap it's a no brainer on our side.

4.) 26 Jul 2019 23:53:24
Could also be a ploy to get spurs to increase their bid for Dybala? Silly season really is upon us. Ed how would you rate Dybala as a signing? (assuming he has any interest in joining us. )

{Ed004's Note - I would be very happy if we could pull off this deal. A front 3 of Dybala, Rasford and Martial has a lot of promise with good sub options in James and Greenwood. Hoping we still pursue the signings Ed 2 mentioned in Maguire and Bruno as well. Would give us some side}

5.) 27 Jul 2019 00:03:18
If we did the Dybala swap would that mean no bruno or David unless Pogba leaves?

{Ed004's Note - I would hope that Dybala is Lukakus replacement and Bruno is still Herreras upgrade}

6.) 27 Jul 2019 00:10:16
If we sign Maguire and bruno and get dybala for lukaku is there a better transfer window we have had? As well as keep pogba for at least another season.

We would have solved the defensive issues and improved our attacking threat massively.

{Ed004's Note - I cant think of any better. Still a massive amount to do to make that even a small bit of a reality}

7.) 27 Jul 2019 00:15:31
Agree with everything that’s been said here. Lukaku would dominate the Italian league and Dybala would suit our style of play a lot more than Lukaku. Seems like a no brained if there’s any truth to this. At the very least it should hopefully force inter into upping their offer a little.

8.) 27 Jul 2019 01:20:18
Dybala is one of a few top talents in Europe that up until the signing of Ronaldo I couldn’t imagine leaving their existing club.

If and that’s is a big IF, he is an option as part of the sale of Lukaku, I sincerely hope we don’t the unique opportunity.

9.) 27 Jul 2019 08:17:49
Dybala and Bruno both play their best football in the No.10 position floating between the midfield and the forward line.

I don't think you will get the best out of BOTH of them could f you play them in the same side as one will have to be pushed into a different position for the other one to play in their best position.

10.) 27 Jul 2019 09:13:39
I’m sceltical about the Dybala offer but it would be a deal that would interest Woodward with the Adidas connection. He’s commercially more appealing than Fernandes. Sad state of affairs really but it’s the way our club is run.
Can’t see it coming off to be honest though.

11.) 27 Jul 2019 09:59:42
I love the idea of this. But, we already have 4 players (Pogba, Parreira, Mata, lingard and Gomes) who's best position is as a 10.

If this were true, it would hopefully force the club into action and cash in, on some of the above players so that the money could be invested in weaker areas of the team. like RW, CB, DM and LB.

12.) 27 Jul 2019 15:32:47
Bruno and Dybala won’t operate in the same team together without a truly world class DM behind them. We’d need Kanye to let those two operate in their best positions at the same time.

Dybala is not a RW or an AM, he plays best as a CF and it’s no coincidence his form has dipped and he’s become unhappy since he’s been pushed out of position.

I’m not doubting Dybala’s ability because he is a great goal scorer but unless he plays CF for us I just don’t see such a transfer working. It would be another square peg in a round hole on huge wages. If there is any truth in this I hope our head isn’t turned and we stick to our original plan.

Cash for Lukaku to buy a specialist RW.

13.) 27 Jul 2019 17:00:40
Can Kanye West play in that position.

14.) 27 Jul 2019 16:14:59
Wazza, we’ve got enough on our hands with Pogba and Lingard, let alone Kanye 😂.

15.) 27 Jul 2019 23:40:39
Damn autocorrect, always happens mid-rant 😂.

17 Aug 2020 13:53:01
a question for KEN, as I've seen a few posts from you or replies should i say in regards to OLE and him needing to be shot and a replacement brought in.

at the start of the season what were your expectations of the team?

what did ole have to do for you to be considered a good enough season for him to get another year?

has the football improved since Jose left?
is the atmosphere more positive?
do you now look forward to watching us play?

last question what manager would you have instead given ole has no cv and is clearly taking this club backwards

bear in mind it is only the 2nd time we have reached 3 semi finals in one season which although it would be nice to win, its not that bad of a showing for a club with a poor manager

we have finished 3rd only once have we finished higher in 7 years

martial and the POOR overrated rashford have had there best seasons ever, we have also managed to have kept the most clean sheets in Europeans top 5 leagues despite multiple f**k ups by the keeper and defenders.


{Ed047's Note - asking a question and giving the answers all in one go, I like it. It could catch on.

1.) 17 Aug 2020 14:16:21
Bolger i can't answer a question when you twist my words. When did i say ole should be shot? That's a complete misrepresentation. You also in the past continue to accuse people of hatred. Quit your BS.

When did i mentions oles cv?

When did i say he was taking the club backwards?

Ive no issue answering a straight question without the hyberbole bolloxolgy

When did i say rashford is overrated. Quite the opposite in fact.
If you would like to converse like an adult i'm here to do that.

I would also say uts also the first time any English club has lost 3 semi finals in one season.

Should we be proud of that?

2.) 17 Aug 2020 14:35:09
It all depends on how many English clubs have managed to actually reach three semis in one season I would think. Can't imagine there are that many.

3.) 17 Aug 2020 14:43:38
For every positive stat you put up any body can counter with negative stats from this season bolger and none of those stats above impress me necessarily.
A couple of individuals had good form for relatively short buyers this season.
We finished closer to 3rd bottom than top. Albeit that was good enough to scrape a cl spot in the last game of the season.
Any half decent team we played since lockdown we have lost or drawn or got a pen to get something.
We didn't play any team from a top 5 league until seville in the EL.
Im not excited by our football at all. We had a brood period either side of lockdown when we were quite impressive but we were playing very poor teams.
Our play is imo negative predictable naive and dull. We don't dominate possession usually we play on the counter a lot against good sides.

We did well against city in all games but so did others look at what lyon did to them and they were 7th in french league.
My expectation was not to be mathematically incapable of winning a league in feb.
There was a decent improvement in position but not in points.
Imo c. v break saved our season. Without it we were I trouble imo.
We should have won the EL the 2nd tier comp we have lots of players that won it before.
Ole carrick phelan and mckenna have not got the team playing with a coherent identity and style.
He has mismanged the squad imo.
You are entitled to disagree. If you are happy with what you see you are entitled to be. i'm not and I'm just as entitled to say that.
I don't hate ole. I don't want him murdered. He has done ok in some parts of his role. I don't see him turning us into challengers again. I don't think he is up to the job.
He won't get another high end job anywhere In europe imo when he is done here. Just like moyes. Just not up to it.
I don't see the point in sticking with him. But the club has made their choice. Ill be 1st one praising him if we compete next season i just don't see it happening.
If you think ole is getting the most out of this squad your entitled to that. If your happy being 3o odd pints behind That's ok. If your happy watching that style that's ok. i'm not. i'm not alone in that view and it wouldn't bother me if i was.
Ole imo is a very poor coach whenit comes to this elite level surrounded by other poor coaches.
Jose had to be fired as did moyes as did lvg. No argument from me there.
We need to be competing to win we need to play with positivity and to a coherent style. I don't see it.

4.) 17 Aug 2020 14:50:55
ok the bolloxolgy aside.

what manager would you choose? and why? based off what

what did you expect us to do at the start of the season?

in your opinion why does the manager deserve to be sacked? has he not fulfilled his objectives?

and you have in one of your replays below said that the players need better coaching and you can't judge these players under ole as he is very very very poor at this level,

when the likes of rashford martial greenwood have all had there best ever seasons, is that down to the manager?

does ole not deserve more credit than he is getting for what he has done with a squad that many said was the worse squad in 30 years at the start of the season.

the fact we have lost 3 semi finals is just pure unlucky its not the manager is poor

You have said you don't see no long term improvement and the manager needs to be sacked but going off the start of ole's reign till now have we not improved?

{Ed047's Note - pure unlucky! 🤦‍♂️

5.) 17 Aug 2020 15:04:36
Bolger some interesting questions in there, I will answer them . 4 and a good cup run signs that the team and club where moving in the right direction
6. Probably poch, knows the epl.

6.) 17 Aug 2020 15:25:41
A very very very poor coach?
What would only a very poor coach of done. Finished above city .

Really not sure why you can't judge the players . But I suppose some can some can't .

7.) 17 Aug 2020 15:33:07
United 2017/ 8
Scored 68 conceded 28
Points 81
Win% 66

United 2019/ 20
Scored 66 conceded 36
Points 66
Win% 47

Why are some lauding three semi finals, three failures?
You know where I sit and it’s with Ken. People can’t accept Ole can’t manage in game. That’s not good enough at the level we aspire to.

Compare the two seasons above, the top one wasn’t seen as good enough but the bottom one is, why?

8.) 17 Aug 2020 15:41:40
Bolger the fact people won't answer you questions says it all .
I would just leave it at that pal.

9.) 17 Aug 2020 16:06:05
ill just stop going on about it i just find it difficult to read some of the posts and replies.

10.) 17 Aug 2020 16:08:58
Jred, which question wasnt answered buddy?
Bolger's questions with answers-

at the start of the season what were your expectations of the team? Ans- top 4, achieved. Albeit more to do with other teams being poorer compared to last season than us being better because we are at 66 points, same as last year even without deadwood like Young, Lukaku, Sanchez etc who were apparently holding us back.

what did ole have to do for you to be considered a good enough season for him to get another year? Ans- Top 4 and win atleast one cup and if i had the database i would pull out posts from several who said the same but would now no doubt backtrack on their words. 3 semi defeats shows that the players are mentally fragile so that's Ole's failure.

has the football improved since Jose left? Ans- Yes if you only want to look at 3 or 4 games in a season. We were poor before Bruno came in then livened up for 3-4 games before C. V and then played some good stuff against a couple of lowly teams after the break. I am sure you missed it but we played similar under Jose for first 2 seasons.

is the atmosphere more positive?
do you now look forward to watching us play? Ans- 2 senior players in your team fighting and abusing each other on the field, hardly a positive atmosphere. Your only creative midfielder openly wanting to leave, hardly positive. Your GK having the worst season, hardly positive. Your youngsters packing and leaving, hardly positive. If only smiling would win you games then i am sure Ole would have done well.

last question what manager would you have instead given ole has no cv and is clearly taking this club backwards. Ans - anyone who has an inkling of what he is doing come match day and not just sit on his hands and praying that all goes well. He should know the other team will also play and will have tactics. So may be anyone who has sense that there is something called Plan B. Poch is available.

Redman, because it was Jose people don't rate that season and forget about it. And he did it with supposed deadwood just adds insult to injury.

11.) 17 Aug 2020 16:20:41
United fans failing to look on the bright side is akin to Scousers walking alone or Eastenders being low on soapy water.

12.) 17 Aug 2020 16:37:58
Is there a time limit jred or can i deal with a bit of stuff before i come back to the page?
1. New coach i'm not sure lots of potential candidates.
2. I expected us to improve and be closer to the top 2. And play a cohesive style of football.
3.yes imo he deserves to be sacked
4. Rashford hit a purple patch and has been poor since his injury.
Greenwood is having his 1st seadon playing out of position.
Martial has improved but imo is not the cf we need.
Awb looks half the player he was at place. Pogba has not imoroved his stats since returning are poor.
Ddg is not imoroving
Lindelof not improving
Mctom gone backwards
Fred is still crap.
Has dalot improved? Periera?
Losing 3 semis is not hard luck you have beaten poch with that stick yourself. So your completely seeing double standards.
Like jred does. When jose was there it was the coaches fault now when ole is there its a poor squad.
5. Oles reign is up down up down. Consistently inconsistent. Poor points total
Bolger you have my answers we won't agree.
But there are people with other opinions than yours you might gerry bored with other opinions.
For every positive stat from oles reign there is a damming one.
I don't see us improving under him 18 months in and the football is insipid and uninspiring imo.
Lvg won jose won i don't believe ole will find a way to win.

13.) 17 Aug 2020 16:46:10
I feel your pain.

14.) 17 Aug 2020 17:17:24
Don't read them then bolger. President trump doesn't like when people disagree with him either. But thankfully last time i checked we live in a democracy where people are encouraged to voice their opinions.
I can't understand how anybody could be happy with ole but i understand that everybody sees things differently.

15.) 17 Aug 2020 17:25:02
Think you were unlucky last night. You should have gone through
Ole's done alright, he got you what you crave, Champions league football
80% of you if not more would have taken top 4 and 3 cup semi's at the start of the season
Give him another season. Give him the money to get his targets, then judge him at the end of next season
He's done a better job with the team than Moyes, Maurine and LVG and we all know what CV's they have, with the exception of Moyes. Patience and backing is needed.

16.) 17 Aug 2020 17:37:03
The fact your happy RD says we need to change😂😂.

17.) 17 Aug 2020 17:38:53
RD maybe we can swap him for yours then. let's see what Ole can do with the Salahs and Manes of this world.

18.) 17 Aug 2020 17:49:50
Red Man - I think it's clear that before Christmas Utd weren't good enough.

I think Ole gambled on the likes of Lingard, Pereria, Pogba, Rashford and Martial to step up and until January he was in real danger of losing his job.

Long term injury to Pogba, regular absences for Rashford and Martial with Lingard and Pereria clearly not god enough had Ole teetering on the edge.

The January signing of Fernandes and the emergence of Greenwood have improved us immeasurably.

I don't look at our form pre Christmas as it's no longer a reliable barometer of the potential of this team.

I think we all agree Ole has probably done enough to save his job and bought himself time to try and rebuild a team capable of challenging for the title. I think we must accept however that any title challenge will be difficult whilst Pep and Klopp remain in the Premier League.

Patience must prevail over panic and we must work towards methodically building a team that is ready to capitalise when Pep and Klopp finally leave in a few years time. By that point Rashford, Martial, Fernandes and Greewood will all either be in or approaching their peak years.

There is no magic bullet, patience, planning, hard work, ambition, steady, continuous progression
& intelligent recruitment is the only remedy.

19.) 17 Aug 2020 18:01:36
He deserves another season. He's done what's been asked of him.

20.) 17 Aug 2020 19:14:08

Manchester United must sit by and patiently wait until Pep and Klopp have hoovered up enough trophies to satiate themselves. Really. Do you think the boardrooms at the giant clubs say that?

Two of the semi finals were post Christmas. There is nothing in Ole’s in game management that suggests he can take us to wins not gallant losers. I am sure the Liverpool fans would be delighted if Ole stayed for as long as.

21.) 17 Aug 2020 19:07:47
It's a sad state of affairs when a Scouser can appear and talk more common sense than many on here.

RD 👏👏👏

As long as you don't have a hidden agenda of course 😉.

22.) 17 Aug 2020 19:35:23
Nothing to do with being delighted Red Man. Let's be honest, you had the success over all those years and rubbed it in our faces ten fold.
It is what it was. No one could argue the success of the SAF era and rightfully so
My above point regarding give him another season relates to partly the fact that Klopp took his time. Built the team bit by bit. Knowing exactly what player he wanted in each position to make his system work, and work tremendously
Does Ole have a plan? A system? Does he know what he wants to make the team more competitive? Will he get the support from upstairs?
They are all major factors in turning a nearly team into a really team. Give him a season. See if the board will support him. Then see if he can improve on what has been a decent season and a step in the right direction.
Let me ask this. Would you have been more happier with Frank Lampard and what he achieved at Chelsea? Ole did more. Frank will be backed and so should OLE be.

23.) 17 Aug 2020 19:37:08
Stevie, you could do better than kissing a scouser ass just because he says Ole is good. But still he won't take him.

24.) 17 Aug 2020 19:53:36
Shan, I'm here to give the opinion I'm entitled to. I'm not here to gloat or take the pi$$ or for name calling.

Klopp knew what he was doing, he had top level experience and success at Dortmund. There is no comparison with Ole at all.

You ask whether Ole has a plan, a system? Does he know what he wants to make the team more competitive? In too many games he has shown a total lack of ideas on how to change the course of a game, let alone the course of a club.

Will the board support him, well, previously the achievement was reaching the CL and once they got that the owners didn’t seem to think they needed a big spend. Even if they spend I have serious doubts Ole would use them to the maximum.

On the Frank Lampard question, he started with a transfer ban, has had less time than Ole, but I can bet there won’t be the same sentimentality about him by Chelsea if he fails. I think the sentimental amateurs will give Ole more time but we will see the same problems.

28.) 17 Aug 2020 22:34:42
Liverpool fan here and its best if you give him a ten year deal. All jokes aside yes he has done the bare minimum but he won't take you to the next level. Also Maguire is your Andy Carroll moment, you know he is carp deep down but you tell yourself he will eventually come good.

29.) 18 Aug 2020 00:06:27
Didn’t we get more points when we came second under Jose than we did when we won the treble. Goes to show we can manipulate stats to fit any argument.

30.) 18 Aug 2020 00:18:57
Rd you are welcome top post here anytime mate and i respect your point of view.
Since bruno arrived there have been some green shoots.
A good run of results and a 3rd place finish. 3 semi finals so on the face of it we had a good second half of the season.
But there is some context that does not inspire me when you look under the skin of those results.
Three semi finals when we couldn't deliver under pressure. A big fall off in performance in our last 4 league games when under pressure. Apart from the city game you could argue we were slight favourites or evens in all of those games. Penaltys got us out of a lot of tight spots. Nothing wrong with getting pens but it points to our inability to find ways from open play under pressure.
So my perspective is different to yours on this one.
Redman has pointed out his lack of game managment in his ability to change the course of a game.
I see the green shoots he has done some good things but i'm not sure that he can get the most from this squad.
He has a better squad than the one that won the EL a couple of years ago.
We didn't play 1 team from one of the top 5 leagues in europe until we played sevilla last night.
We did make lots of chances and the keeper played great but we lost, again.
Ole has had a real up and down time. 1st season great start 12 wins on the spin then lost it and blew the cl place.
2nd season crap start bruno came it got better it even got good for about 10 games but last 5 or 6 games its crap again. When it counted.
But he is here for the time being and retains his job so all i can do is hope it gets better but I've little or no faith in his ability to get us where we need to be. So as a fan i'm in the hope camp not the believe camp.
I don't have to make the decisions at the club but if i did i would be in the no hope camp.

31.) 18 Aug 2020 00:41:27
An hour and a half ken, come on that's plenty of time. What were you playing at? 😂

Some great posts above. Wasn't feeling any pain. Apart from the pain I get knowing I'll have to watch this for another year.

We are not serious about getting back to the top, are we?

32.) 18 Aug 2020 06:14:13
I guess there are valid points to both arguments Ken. Who else is there? You had 2 top men in LVG and Maurine and that didn’t work out. Where do the club go from here? What improvements can be made to take you to the next level?
As I said, I think he’s done ok and is taking you in the right direction.



05 Aug 2020 17:11:31
• 4 players scored 10 or more goals
• Martial and Rashford enjoyed their personal best season
• Mason Greenwood's development
• 2nd fewest games lost in the league
• 4th most wins in the league
• 26 Cleansheets — most in Europe
• 36 league goals conceded — third fewest in the division
• 0.84 goals conceded per game — second fewest in Europe
• 2nd best record against top 6
• 113 goals this season — the most since Sir Alex Ferguson.

someone on Facebook posted these and some of these actually surprised me.


1.) 05 Aug 2020 17:29:56
Don't let the truth distract you from the agenda. Ole is terrible, this team is terrible and we are going no where but down. Hell relegation could be on the cards next year. lol.

2.) 05 Aug 2020 19:05:32
Bolger they are impressive stats. i'm sure without too much thought anyone could come up with a list of stats that show a different and negative picture.
But the only stat that matters for me is we finished 3rd and by end of Aug hopefully will have won a cup.
Its all about next season. Not only for us but every team. We all start at zero points.
Next year we need to do better. i'm sure we will. 66 points is a poor total we need to be targeting an extra 20 points and hope Liverpool drop off their impeccable high standards.

3.) 05 Aug 2020 19:49:53
He is not good enough no matter how you paint it shappy, i go with ed001 and ed002 opinion about him.

4.) 05 Aug 2020 20:01:46
Thats hust it thi rover '"opinions" and everyone has one but the FactS are he hasn't done that bad of a job as he for someone who has no clue 🤭.

5.) 05 Aug 2020 21:44:54
Rover he may not be, but ask yourself this is the team better off now or when Ole took over?

There is a middle ground where you can appreciate the job Ole has done, the positives he has created, while admitting that he probably isn't the man to bring back long term success.

Personally considering that in the EPL currently arguably the two best managers in the game atm are managing be our nearest rivals, they have been given time and money to build formidable teams and have broke records over the past few years. With them and their teams at their peak the absolute best position we could have possibly finished this season with this squad in this league was 3rd.

Ole did that. Spurs had Pochettino as manager at the start of the season. With Jose coming in halfway through.

Arsenal had Emery in charge for most of the season. A man who has won domestic and European titles.

Chelsea have a good squad, with a promising manager and a well structured backroom team.

Ole beat them, and the stats back up that it's not all doom and gloom.

6.) 05 Aug 2020 23:18:14
I agree shappy its far from doom and gloom. Since bruno came in there are a lot of positives and the results have been very good.
Its easy to pick out negatives but there are positives too.
Plus 20 points next season is not an unreasonable expectation if you look at our points haul since jan.
3 good signings would help we need a deeper squad a bit of luck with injuries and it should be our target.
I think our competition city Chelsea arsenal and spurs will all be better next season i think Liverpool will not do quite as well as a result but they go on as strong favourites.
More progression and to compete in the big trophies to a much greater extent.

7.) 06 Aug 2020 07:21:55

Yet Ole lost to Chelsea in the most important game, the FA cup semi.

There are positive points, but even yourself admit you don’t think Ole can take us to the level needed. Or has your position changed now?

He needs to win the Europa to show he can be a winner as a minimum, otherwise we go into another season where there will be that question mark. People rightly point out Poch won nothing yet cuddle up to Ole, works both ways.

8.) 06 Aug 2020 08:40:49
You say the FA cup semi final was the most important game against Chelsea but had we lost either of the league games against them we would have finished 5th.

Ultimately top four is more important than getting to the FA cup final.

9.) 06 Aug 2020 09:20:44

The new Arsenal.

10.) 06 Aug 2020 10:30:58
Red man the new Arsenal are winning the FA cup and finishing 6th every year. They can't keep their best player and they can't attract top players because no one outside of a few British people of a certain age rate the FA cup more than playing in the UCL.

You want players of Sancho's quality to improve the team? Then we need UCL football more than a trip to Wembley.

11.) 06 Aug 2020 10:40:38
Redman would you be happy if we won the FA and finished 8th?

12.) 06 Aug 2020 11:09:18
"He needs to win the Europa to show he can be a winner as a minimum".

Yet you have stated you would like Poch as our manager, who has won precisely nothing with a squad considered far superior to ours over the last few years.

Bit inconsistent.

13.) 06 Aug 2020 11:10:40
We should be able to finish top four from where we were. I don’t agree with the way we surrendered the Semi final.

14.) 06 Aug 2020 11:40:24

Incorrect, get your facts right, I stated I wanted Simeone next on a number of occasions.

15.) 06 Aug 2020 20:48:05
My apologies, you're right. Simeone is your only choice. Jose-light. But you have spoken of Poch in comparison to Ole in much more favourable terms on here. One of the more recent comments being a loaded question re. Poch taking over at Newcastle. Why do you think he's a better manager, considering he's won diddly squat?

16.) 07 Aug 2020 12:40:38
Redman would you be happy if we won the FA and finished 8th?



27 Jul 2020 08:17:59
so we finished 3rd

the carabo cup semi final

and look to be heading to the QF of the Europa

funny old season ay ;)

not bad from a manager with no C.V.


1.) 27 Jul 2020 08:31:28
Some other day, Kovacic was it? gets a red card and it's a different football game.

2.) 27 Jul 2020 08:45:22
No you sre right bolger. CV or no CV, he is godsent. Best thing since even before sliced bread.

2 points more than what Moyes managed, 4 points less than what we manager in LvGs first season, same as LvGs second season when he got the sack, 3points less than Jose's first season where we won Europa and Carling cup, 15 points worse off that Jose's second season, same points as last season and all this when in everyones opinion we got the best signings this season since van Persie.

Hey but still we finished 3rd, got humiliated in the semis by Chelsea who also had a rookie manager and had a transfer ban. So yeah Ole is a god sent.

3.) 27 Jul 2020 09:04:23
Shan, it's official now. Ole is the third best manager in the EPL this season. Fact😘.

4.) 27 Jul 2020 09:19:12
Way too much hate for Ole. He is not a good manager, he doesn't make the right substitutes sometimes, he runs players to the ground. But he did get us top 3.
There is a lot of cleaning up to do and he's pushed quite a few out.

Smalling is almost sold.

Sanchez is out, who Jose kept on playing repeatedly who have one rubbish performance after another.

Lukaku is out, who had the worst touch and was guilty of missing so many chances against big teams and having teribble hold up given his stature. Martial is twice the player Lukaku is.

Jones never plays, Rojo is going to leave.
Greenwood never gets as many goals he got under Jose.

Pereira and Lingard are not starting.

Do you really think we have anyone apart from the first XI who actually improves the team? I don't think so, maybe GK but no one. That first XI bar Shaw is the best out of our squad.

It is a squad game, and I would say chelsea have a much more rounded squad than us barring GK. We are still 4-5 quality players away from the title, one RW, one player like Grealish who play attacking mid or LW, one holding (Declan Rice), a left back and a centre back away.

5.) 27 Jul 2020 09:26:24
Lol shappy.

6.) 27 Jul 2020 10:16:24
How is he 3rd best manager? Based on money to position ratio he would be the worst. Just because you come 3rd doesn't mean a thing.

Usually looking at other sides views on something opens your eyes. Every Liverpool fan wants us to keep Ole and let him spend spend spend. that's how highly they value him being our manager.

We will see anyway where we are next season when everyones chewing wasps because of how poorly we have done.

7.) 27 Jul 2020 10:49:57
The toxics don't have patience and always want to chop and change.
If people don't see progress, God help them.

8.) 27 Jul 2020 10:55:57
Wow. You'd think with some of the posts we'd had an atrocious end to the season and finished next to Arsenal.

There are surely times to be negative? Such as when we are massively underachieving by sitting 14th in the table or getting humped by Burnley at Old Trafford? I was at that point and I feel fans had every right to be.

I'm not Ole's biggest fan, I still have plenty of concerns about him as a coach but there is no denying the squad is in better shape than it was 18 months ago, the players look happier and some of the performances have actually been good to watch. When was the last time you genuinely enjoyed watching a United side? It's hard to argue with finishing 3rd even if other sides have dropped off. So from someone who was feeling very negative about the direction of the club at the start of the year and felt Ole didn't get much out of the players, over the last few months I've gradually become more positive. That's not through anything other than watching the team develop, players showing improvement and starting to win games the level of squad we have should be winning.

To those who are still massively unhappy and feel he should immediately be sacked, dragged out by the feet and fed to pigeons, what would it take for you to feel the club is heading in the right direction?

9.) 27 Jul 2020 11:16:48
Where is the hatred guys? What do you compare things to? I just did a year on year comparison with the points each season. We stood 3rd because Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs imploded or had issues. They had one off seasons where they did not achieve their targets. 66 points is nothing to be proud of or have the goal posts shifted because its Ole?

What direction is it that we are heading? We are still at 66 points, same as last season when half of last season was under mourinho.

There is no hatred, its just perspective on how you view things.

10.) 27 Jul 2020 11:32:59
Shan, where did you expect United to finish this season?

11.) 27 Jul 2020 11:47:25
On an average season, 66 points has us somewhere around 6th or 7th. Its now imperative that we don't sit on the third place laurels and kick on. 66 points next season and its Europa League again.

12.) 27 Jul 2020 12:08:54
Agreed, if we finish with the same points next season we'd be in the Europa League as we can't expect others to have the seasons they have had again.

It took Klopp time and money to get Liverpool sorted, it took Pep time and money to get City sorted. Funnily enough it looks like Lampard is getting time and money to try to get Chelsea back to the top.

The positives for us would be, we have the youngest squad in the league, CL football, plenty of money to invest in the transfer market, our best players all look as though they are staying and continuing to improve.

13.) 27 Jul 2020 12:53:55
Considering where we were on December. This was the best we could do and despite Leicester's capitulation, united as a team could only handle what they could and they got there and over exceeded in my opinion. Congrats has to go to Ole and the team for that.

14.) 27 Jul 2020 13:21:10
It took Klopp money and time to get Liverpool sorted but they were in a far worst position than we are and they changed all the first eleven.

Can you say that in order to compete we must change all our players? I would don't think so. It didn't took much time for Pep, from day one they were dominant and played well, but in the first season weren't effective.

15.) 27 Jul 2020 13:28:07
League table doesn't lie .
There is a lot of variations to a season .
We could get 76 points and finish 5th next season and the people complaining out getting 66 points would complain we where 5th .

16.) 27 Jul 2020 13:47:48
In order to compete we pretty much have changed a lot of our players.

We've signed AWB, Maguire, Ighalo, Bruno and James. Potentially looking to add two or three more this window.

We've promoted Greenwood, Williams, McTominay (granted he started under Jose) and Tuanzebe (though hasn't been fit) .

Over the past 18 months we've got rid of / loaned out Young, Fellaini, Lukaku, Sanchez, Rojo, Smalling, Valencia and a few others. Also eased Lingard, Jones, Pereira, Mata and others out of the team more recently. So I'd the say the evidence shows we did need to change a big part of the squad in order to compete.

17.) 27 Jul 2020 15:16:55
Yes Rjmanutd but i speak about now. So we are in a better position than Liverpool was when Klopp took over.

18.) 27 Jul 2020 16:38:52
"We stood 3rd because Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs imploded or had issues".

That suggests we had none. I suppose we're not counting trying to instill some belief in a side undermined by their previous manager, long-term injuries to Pogba, Rushford and Martial, no natural wingers in our team, a threadbare squad lacking any real quality outside the first XI, and no creative midfielder for half a season.

Issues like that?

{Ed047's Note - aside from being in the Champions league I would suggest finish below the top two this year is pretty much nothing to shout about what ever way you cut it Nou.

You are officially best of the piss poor rest and that really is it.

19.) 27 Jul 2020 14:42:51
We needed to change a big part of the squad to play a different style of football .

20.) 27 Jul 2020 17:37:36
Stevie, i am not undermining our issues. Injuries are part and parcel of the game. Liverpool were without Mane, Salah and Allison for large parts. Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs were all 70 and above last year while we were 66. Chelsea had a ban, Arsenal changed their manager and Spurs imploded. All the above have gone down this year and we are still. So that means others have worsened and not that we have improved. People are quickly giving that we finished 3rd given where we were in January. Wasnt Ole the manager before January?

21.) 27 Jul 2020 20:06:15
Mane played 35 games, was the large part he missed the 3 months of lockdown?

22.) 27 Jul 2020 23:06:19
Do points matter more than league position now? Best let the United squad of 96/ 97 know that their league medal isn’t worth as much as the others (I had to google this stat - we won it with a mere 75 points so we are only 9 behind winning the league! )

Ignoring the point difference between a draw and a win, there are only so many points available in a season. If one team smashes records, there will be fewer points to go round to everyone else. So if it’s a close league then there will be lower points at the top.

Either way Shan, your insistence of spinning everything into a negative is starting to become insufferable. Everyone on here wants us to win the league, everyone wants us to win trophies. But 3rd place is better than 5th, which is better than 14th. It’s all about perspective. I don’t know if you’ve ever said, but do you actually want ole to succeed?



21 Jul 2020 12:31:13
Can I just ask all the ole haters?

What was your expectations of the team this year?

What was the minimum place we had to finish for him to have done a good job in your eyes?

If we finish in the top 4 and we could possibly win the europa would this be a successful season given 18 months ago this was the worst united team in 30 years?

And we have finished in the top 4 only twice in 6-years?


1.) 21 Jul 2020 12:58:18
I doubt anyone “hates” Ole, I certainly don’t. If he succeeds my club succeeds. I just don’t see the skill set of a senior manager.

He has never won anything at the level we are at, he has to convince me he has the calibre of tactical, in game management at this level. If he wins the Europa he gets another season. I want to see the essence in his management of how we compete for the league next season and haven't seen it from him. If he wins the Europa and gets top four that would be a good season.

2.) 21 Jul 2020 12:58:57
A more reasonable question may be, To all the people that have a different opinion to me.

3.) 21 Jul 2020 13:01:34
Can't reply i'm afraid.
I don't hate ole. i'm not sure anybody does.

4.) 21 Jul 2020 13:23:10
maybe the word hate was a bit to strong,

but go back to the start of the season, everyone was posting that for ole to have a successful season he had to secure top 4, play attractive football and maybe win a trophy,

for a manager as some have pointed out with no CV, no caliber he has certainly managed to be a success this season if it pans out well in the next 2 league games compared to the managers who came before him.

the football has improved and some would say its our best football since the god that was fergie and he has massively improved some of the players,

martial and rashford have had there best seasons to date even with spells on the sidelines,

fred is another one who has had a better season, mctominay before the break and his injury he was having a good season,

even the defense, we are joint 2nd for having the best defensive record in the league, although lately we have looked dodgy we have defiantly improved,

and when ole leaves he will have left the club in a much better position that when he joined.

5.) 21 Jul 2020 13:42:13
It's always been to secure Champions League football next year. It's always been that he can acheive the targets set out. He had a 6 month grace period last year to grow into the role. Over 38 league games finishing 5th should not be acceptable.

6.) 21 Jul 2020 13:48:12
To be a success you need to win things. Ole had a great chance and blew it this weekend to get to the FA Cup final. I am not for one moment saying Chelsea are a walkover. But we should have gone out to beat them not contain them.
Coming in the top 4 is not success and i don't care what anyone says. Top 4 is a for me the minimum requirement for him to be given a 2nd full season. If he comes top 4 give him a season to challenge (and back him of course £) if he doesn't challenge top 2 then he should be replaced for someone else to then "have a go" at challenging.
Winning the Europa and top 4 will be a success for his first FULL season.

A side note: the football in his 18 months has been DIRE with a few games here and there mainly the past 4 weeks which have been worth watching.

7.) 21 Jul 2020 13:48:48
The word is used a lot on here Bolger its not just you mate.
There is a huge difference between hating someone and not wanting them to be the coach of your favourite team.
I think ole will be kept for sure if he gets cl.
If he doesn't i'm not sure if the board will take the last 6 months as enough evidence that he can do better next season.
As I've said before if he doesn't get cl football he should be fired.



14 Jul 2020 00:44:30
Makes you laugh ole was tactically wrong and all the other tosh I've seen after a draw against a very good Southampton team.

We have just played the 5th game in a row with the same starting 11.

Were only 1 point off 3rd, 4th by goal difference and its still in our own hands,

Some people need to get a grip. You can't win every game and a point was fair.


1.) 14 Jul 2020 01:53:59
Don’t be so silly. we dropped points. #oleout
(Sarcasm btw)

2.) 14 Jul 2020 05:17:30
Southampton were really good tonight the way they pressed was some of the best and most organised I think I have seen and they deserve credit for that.

Oles in game management may well be criticised as I don't think some of his decisions were great even sir alex was never backed blindly and no one should be above being criticised. Yet despite today its still in our hands.

What is really pleasing me is a draw feels like a defeat at the moment and you get the sense the fans are starting to believe again and are keeping expectations high which should always be a must at utd and for too long mediocrity was being accepted. Now it's up to the club to back the manager properly and fill in the gap between the bench and first team so we can continue looking forward.

3.) 14 Jul 2020 07:03:03
What surprises me is that no one at the club saw what Southampton would want to do. They press like that and wanted us to give the ball to Pogba centrally with his back to them. It was an obvious tactic, so why when pressed did we fall into it, it should have been seen before the game. It took 25 minutes, one goal, nearly others and a drinks break to change what was obvious from before the start. That is the naivety of where we are. I also agree to Shappy’s point about freshening the team up, they had energy last night and we lacked fizz. The other elephant in the room beyond tactical naivety was DDG again allowing a cross into the and across the six yard area.

Oh, and those who said Southampton couldn’t be predicted, this is my post from the day before. If I can see it why can’t the management who are paid to?

12 Jul 2020 10:48:56
A fascinating few games ahead and there is an opportunity to get top four, possibly third. Tomorrow Southampton, who should be more of a challenge than the recent ones. We certainly can’t afford the slow sloppy start that we had at Villa until the drinks break. I sense they will press in certain areas, try to turn the ball over, likely Pogba will be targeted. Don’t know why but I get a feeling of a draw tomorrow, when we really must win our games now.

4.) 14 Jul 2020 07:49:17
Our first XI is pretty good but the squad depth is quite poor.

If we had someone like Sancho or Greenwood from bench, would have put pressure back on them.

Looked clear that many players ran out of juice in second half. Bruno had a mare. But he is the type of player who steps up and delivers.

I'm wondering who will play Left back on Thursday.

5.) 14 Jul 2020 08:09:59

I suspect Dalot if both Shaw and Williams unfit.

6.) 14 Jul 2020 08:20:09
ole knows his best 11, you don't change something that isn't broken,

a few players didn't play great but it happens,

2 wins from our next 2 games and i think that should be enough to secure a top 4 spot.

7.) 14 Jul 2020 08:25:24
TRD, that is exactly the problem. We have a team but not a squad. So if someone gets tired it we want to change things a little bit, we don't have the players for it.

The likes of say Sancho would be perfect. I saw a post on here earlier concerned that signing Sancho could impact Greenwood, but I think we need 4 top quality players for the front 3 positions and 3 top quality players for the 2 more attacking midfield positions. Which means we need one more top quality attacker and one more top quality non-defensive midfielder.

The DM position is broadly covered by matic and mctom, plus Fred can play there too.

I'm not too concerned by our defence although you could argue there's plenty of room for improvement there also, but if the front 6 are in good form then we don't rely so heavily on defence anyway.

8.) 14 Jul 2020 09:20:16
It is a real shame we could not hold out last night as i feel that the psychological impact would have been huge of us moving into 3rd. However I do feel we are ahead of where we expected us to be (we have had a better run and others have slipped up) .
In essence it is now a 3 match season and we are still the form team of the 3.
Hopefully the injuries are minor and we get the players back and it might be time to consider a few changes to the starting team to just add some fresh legs in (Fred/ McTomminy) for the Palace game.
It is squeaky bum time for all 3 teams but I think we can keep the faith and look forward.

9.) 14 Jul 2020 09:46:52
I rally think we need a confident central defender to improve the defence. Relying on all hands to the pumps when the other team attacks is not sustainable. Mcguire gets found out for pace and the full backs get caught out of position too often. You can see that this is the area where confidence is lacking.

10.) 14 Jul 2020 10:24:03
I think the result and the injury to Shaw can in the most part be put down to a lack of rotation. While Southampton played very well, clearly had a game plan and executed it to perfection, if we had an extra 10% fitness/ freshness then we wouldn't have been down to 10 men and we wouldn't have had such a hard game of it.

Against Villa we could have rested Pogba, Shaw and Rashford. Played Fred, Williams and Mata. Villa were never going to press us and we were always going to have a lot of the ball.

Then against Southampton last night we could have rested AWB, Matic, Bruno and Greenwood. The game was always likely to be more open and high energy. We could have played Williams, McTominay, Fred and James. Giving us an extra body deeper in midfield and the possibility of breaking in begin them more effectively.

In both games the rested players would have been on the bench and more than capable of coming on for 20 minutes if needed.

At the very least we would have 4 points from those two games, maybe 6. But at the same time Shaw, AWB, Matic, Pogba, Bruno, Rashford and Greenwood would all have had a rest.

We are unbeaten in 18 games, Shaw has played all of them. Twisting an ankle happens either because someone clobbers you or you are physically and mentally tired.

That said, we were always going to drop points somewhere. It's not the end of the world, and we still have top 4 in our hands.

also to add how much you think the club will earn from shirt sales alone having Sancho number 7

if we sold the players that were no longer needed instead of blocking and pricing players out of moves put that to the fact we have saved around 50 million on wages with Sanchez now gone.

its really frustrating every window is the same.

sancho is available for 108 million, we haven't even tried bringing the fee down. make an offer, why have we been after the player for months and yet we haven't made an offer.

Dortmund always sell there best players, they are a selling club.

the fee is irrelevant if he plays the way he does for Dortmund and provides the numbers he does currently the money will look like peanuts in 3 or 4 years time.

and agent fees and wages are not the issue, multiple sources have said the issue is the fee.

but if we are going to waste time and then go for the likes of brooks and sar, imo is ridiculous.

greenwood is better than brooks and sar so we should stop wasting time and look at getting a cb and a striker in.

Hasnt everyone had the same rest period?

Im sure we were given an extra week off becuase of how far we got in europe.

The main issue for me is we lack energy and desire to want to win the ball or close down.

Maybe its match fitness but certain players need dropping for others.

Yeah ken resign for the next manager to be on the same situation as the previous 3 managers.

You can keep banging on about the manager but if woodward who was sat in the stands watching this doesn't see we need players to imorive this team.

I agree ole needs to grow a pair and drop players that ain't performing, pogba, rashford other than his goal, martial was poor.

But we need signings we got out of jail today was very lucky been out played but palace and brighton and struggled against luton for large parts of the game.

thanks Ken.

Evra's video where he said the glazer loves the club, yet is allowing ex bankers to run footballing matters.

im still shocked that a dof from another club had to contact an ex player to get him to tell judge to answer his phone.
