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.

bolger2

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.

bolger2

{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 😂.


 

 

31 Jan 2019 12:49:03
martial has signed. now for dave and herrera.

bolger2

1.) 31 Jan 2019 16:37:53
And release the rest.


2.) 31 Jan 2019 17:22:20
Easy there Mort - we are not going to win much with just those 3 players. We need more :)


3.) 01 Feb 2019 12:38:36
Its the start of a good 5 a side.


 

 

13 Jan 2019 00:52:32
So we're are considering Southgate.

Please NO.

England overacheived but the teams we played we should have beat.

In my opinion Southgate is not the manager we need ole should be made manager if Southgate is in the running.

bolger2

1.) 13 Jan 2019 09:08:36
It’s nonsense. This shortlist is suddenly becoming very long if the press are to believed. I’m sure Southgate also realises he is in totally the right job at the right time. He’s building something very special with England.


2.) 13 Jan 2019 09:14:35
Sky peddling stories hopefully, I’d be majorly disappointed if he was named our manager, would be a MASSIVE step backwards.


3.) 13 Jan 2019 09:49:09
Definitely just the papers pushing nonsense stories. Some where else reported that we could also go in for Diego Simeone with his contract being up in 18 months.


4.) 13 Jan 2019 10:38:32
While I too have reservations over Southgate he does tick many of the boxes. Primarily promoting youth and playing offensive football. He has also shown an ability to get players into the right mind-set as seen with England last summer.

Due to the nature of Ole's appointment we will have to endure 4-5 months of press speculation over who will be the next manager. Like with us being linked to 100,000,000 players every year, we will now be linked to just about every manager under the sun. It doesn't sell papers or get clicks if they just keep repeating the obvious. Pochettino is the most likely candidate.

On that point I found Pochettino's most recent interview very interesting. Cheering when Ole scored the winner in the 99 UCL final, saying to him Sir Alex IS football.

Now they could be brushed away as him being asked loaded questions during the interview as we play Spurs today it makes sense to ask him questions about us. However, he didn't need to be that honest or open. I would go as far as saying if Mourinho had said similar comments about another side while our manager it would have been construed as "flirting" with that team, especially if that team was without a permanent manager.

Either way they make interesting reading/ listening.


5.) 13 Jan 2019 12:10:41
Who broke it? Sky.
Next thing we know is suddenly there's a surge of money on Sky Bet as all the chumps rush to take advantage.
Hardly coincidental.

For the record I would ask Southgate if he would want an interview. Sound him out and put him in the file for future consideration for the manager after this one. Assuming the one who gets the job this summer lasts 3-5 years we'll be looking again at some point.


6.) 13 Jan 2019 11:59:31
Good post shappy agree completely at the Poch point. Seems to be batting his eyes at us and entertaining the questions. Could simply have said he doesn’t want to talk about united. Very interesting. I think he’s interested tbh.


7.) 13 Jan 2019 14:48:55
I wouldn't touch Simeone with a barge pole. His football style is awful and he is definitely not what we need.


8.) 13 Jan 2019 15:48:02
The world cup adventure is a total myth, yes it appeared to be togetherness and played some good football, but the teams played. come on. half the fans could coach England to the semi final with that group

Tunisia - W
Panama - W
Belgium - L
Colombia - D (W on Pens)
Sweden - W
Croatia - L
Belgium - L.


9.) 13 Jan 2019 16:22:18
Yes England played against some teams at that world cup that would struggle in league two. No ones hailing Southgate as some tactical genius that's the love child of Menotti and Michels. But for the first time in over a decade there was a positive atmosphere around the England camp. Not the usual yeah were so great we expect to win but just relaxed and positive. He's cleared out some of the same old faces and looks to play positive pacy football with some of our players at the front of it. He's worth putting in the discussion and I'd have him ahead of the likes of allegri or simeone.


10.) 13 Jan 2019 21:08:08
That makes no sense. He could not even justifiably sit in the same. e car as Allegri or Simione. They are both brilliant managers and experts at using their resources. Southgate is good on atmospherics but otherwise nothing proved.


11.) 14 Jan 2019 07:19:25
There’s no way Southgate is appointed over Solskjaer now. I wouldn’t worry.


12.) 14 Jan 2019 08:27:26
Bringing in Southgate will probably revive all the "the players are not good enough, we must sell 8 and buy 9 new players" discussions on this site. They have been abcent the last weeks, even Jones/ Smalling are not mentioned as often as they used to be.


13.) 14 Jan 2019 09:02:19
Pochetino clearly looks like the best candidate right now, if he'll come. Southgate worth considering, but certainly should not be at the top of the list. If OGS can keep the positive performances coming, he should be ahead of Southgate.


14.) 15 Jan 2019 04:53:55
I just don't see in what world, in any way can people think Gareth Southgate is even close to being a candidate for the Man Utd job.
Maybe it's because i'm Scottish and didn't get swept up in the football coming home nonsense in the world cup where England beat (and only just on occasion) really poor teams and lost to anyone with any quality they played. There was no evidence of smart tactical changes or a great gameplan basically Harry Kane scored from a few set pieces that's it. The stars aligned for a run deep into the competition but none of that was due to the manager IMO. People will be calling for Tim Sherwood next.


 

 

19 Nov 2018 17:08:04
so if rumors are true and the following of

dave the save
rojo
smalling
jones
bailly
valencia
pogba
martial
sanchez
mata
herrera

rashford

all either not wanted or don't want to be here are true where does this leave us,

we can't just go out and buy 11 players in one window.

i might be over reacting but it doesn't look good atm.

bolger2

1.) 19 Nov 2018 18:11:07
Barring one or two that looks like just what we need. A clear plan, a clear out and significant investment.


2.) 19 Nov 2018 18:54:33
Things would look a whole lot better if we sold the majority of those players imo bolger.
I think you forgot darmian too mate. 😂
Ideally from that list ddg rash and martial stay. The rest won't be missed a great deal in reality they either don't play a lot or don't overly impress when they do or in the case of valencia mata and herrera there is no real significant improvement in them at this stage of their career.


3.) 19 Nov 2018 19:14:02
wouldnt have any sleepless nights if
rojo
smalling
jones
bailly
valencia
sanchez
mata
herrera
All these left.


4.) 19 Nov 2018 21:28:37
We have probably never sold or signed anywhere close to that many first team players in a window. 50% of them will still be here next September.


5.) 19 Nov 2018 21:33:45
Also Darmian. Good post Bolger, you've simply illustrated just how much work needs to be done. It won't be easy shifting this lot either because of their wages.


6.) 20 Nov 2018 09:43:58
Also Young missed off.

Id only keep about 6 out of all of them.


7.) 20 Nov 2018 10:41:50
Also we may have to play the free transfer market. Aaron Ramsey for example should at least be looked at.


8.) 20 Nov 2018 11:52:45
It's obvious isn't it?

It leaves us with a starting 11 of:

Romero, Dalot, Lindelof, Tuanzebe, Shaw, Matic, Fred, McTominay, Lingard, Lukaku and Young.

In a 433. Plus anyone we can sign, although we might not be able to convince many to sign if they see that many players jumping ship.


9.) 20 Nov 2018 16:17:22
Oh my word shappy all those players leaving and you still can't fit fellaini into your team. Maybe you should have the job above jose😂😂.


10.) 20 Nov 2018 23:50:30
Ken, Fallaini is on the bench waiting for the 70th minutes when we are a goal down.


11.) 20 Nov 2018 23:55:40
Don’t know why people are always quick to write Mata off our books. I know he’s past the point of improving but he still offers creativity where we currently lack it, gives 100% and consistently performs when played (which is hard to say of any United player at the minute) .

Would happily keep him as a squad player.


12.) 21 Nov 2018 09:40:43
Id keep Mata and Herrera. Good squad players. De Gea, martial, rashford are all must keeps. Pogba if he wanted to stay but if he doesn't move him on. The rest can go.


13.) 21 Nov 2018 13:14:17
Thats fair mort i'd agree with that.

17 Jan 2020 09:59:45
so harry is the new captain,

to be honest he was the first name that i thought of.

hats off to young, signed as a forward player and did the job at full back.

will harry now thrive after being given the responsibility? England future captain maybe.

bolger2

1.) 17 Jan 2020 10:18:50
Honestly,

I'm not a fan of Maguire. He is a decent CB. Might make a good Captain though.


2.) 17 Jan 2020 10:21:21
He's not a leader.

He rarely talks, he doesn't organise.

Joke how he's captain.


3.) 17 Jan 2020 10:37:29
Happy enough. though always though dave would be the captain. No problem with it though.


4.) 17 Jan 2020 10:41:00
Get behind our players guys, don't write them off before they even start. Its first season for Harry i am sure he will come good.


5.) 17 Jan 2020 11:07:45
Maguire isn’t playing badly. The issue is that he is never an £80m defender.

Decent in possession, good in the air and strong. But the limitations are in organisation, positioning and pace. I don’t think it’s a case of he’ll come good. I think he’s playing to his ability, more or less, and is an improvement over our other defenders.

He’s just not an £80m improvement and will always be judged against the fee and come up short.


6.) 17 Jan 2020 11:28:58
I would suspect a captain should be able to string a sentence together. Not doubting his motivation, but he lacks the charisma or oratory skills of a natural leader.


7.) 17 Jan 2020 12:23:55
I don't think anyones getting him mixed up with Oscar Wilde- but not a bad choice considering the options.


8.) 17 Jan 2020 14:04:09
Regardless, I remember a press conference where Ole had to basically dumb down the journalist's simple question to him. Then he followed that up with on the pitch by not understanding the very basic rules of the coin toss to see who's kick the gale off. Nothing to do with his footballing abilities, but as club captain he's meant to not only galvanise the players on the pitch, but represent the squad in the media, be their public face of sorts.


9.) 17 Jan 2020 14:23:59
Why are we all still fixated with fees and transfer money - could not care less how much anybody costs. Totally iirrelevant to us.


10.) 17 Jan 2020 17:19:29
I agree eric the numbers are so mental that even 10m doesn't make sense fees are irrelevant to me nowadays.


11.) 17 Jan 2020 17:32:42
LLV.
How much did Valencia do of that he could not even speak English after 10 years in England. He was captain under 4 managers.


12.) 17 Jan 2020 22:30:12
Fair play to him. Still a huge honour.


13.) 18 Jan 2020 00:47:35
Valencia was a poor captain Ken.


 

 

16 Jan 2020 11:48:32
Brandon Williams 6 clean sheets in 7 games.


just saying. :)

bolger2

1.) 16 Jan 2020 13:17:33
Fantastic talent, and for me the highlight of the season.

McTominay's form, and the step up from Rashford have been two shining lights this season.

As have the step up from Greenwood, but for me Williams pips it because it wasn't expected.

Also here's a fun Stat I saw today, Liverpool's front three (Salah. Firmino and Mane) have scored 38 goals this season.

Rashford, Martial and Greenwood have scored 39! goals in less minutes on the pitch.


2.) 16 Jan 2020 14:20:47
Agree totally shappy.


i also seen that. imagine if we had a midfield i think was one comment i seen on the post.


3.) 16 Jan 2020 14:28:25
Problem is Shap, they have goals coming from other parts of the pitch. That's were we are struggling. And imo Fernandes is the best option of the 3 AM mentioned to bring that to the team (Maddison, Grealish) .


4.) 16 Jan 2020 15:02:43
They have 71 goals across the EPL, UCL, EFL and FA cups. Meaning they have had 32 goals coming from elsewhere.

We have 54 goals across the EPL, EL, EFL and FA cups. Meaning 15 goals have come from elsewhere.

So there is definitely something in that.


5.) 16 Jan 2020 15:42:01
I should imagine if we get Bruno Fernandes even with his boots on the wrong feet he will still be our best bet take a corner that somebody can get a head on. Oh for the days of a Bruce, pallister. vidic, Ferdinand -or a Hughes or RVD who could come up with a bullet header. all add up at end of season. Just need JAMES to weigh in with a few like Nani-Kanchelskis -Sharpe . that's what top teams do. spread the goals around.


6.) 16 Jan 2020 19:53:18
Bruno will be a fantastic goal threat.
Specialist in penalties and free kicks.
Surely, he will bring the best out of Maguire from corners.


 

 

12 Jan 2020 23:18:01
Marcus rashford.

Hes played 22 games and got 14 goals

19 in all competitions and he has the most goals by anyone this season in all competitions bar sterling

Hes took the most shots of anyone and has the most shots on target, scored the most pens and has hit the woodwork the most times so far.

With 16 games remaining and only 3 behind vardy. I think if rashford can improve his positioning and get more consistent, sometimes he goes missing I think he can become one of the best strikers in the leauge, he has the pace just lacks a few aspects to take him to the next level.


I think one of the few positives of the managers doing would use not agree?

bolger2

1.) 13 Jan 2020 01:19:52
I'd agree. I know Ole gets some stick, and I've certainly been one to criticise, but you'd have to think he knows how to play as a forward and can pass some of that knowledge on to our young strikers.


2.) 13 Jan 2020 04:25:51
Rashford has probably been the best player this season.
It would be a great achievement if he scores more than 25 goals this season.
He is playing consistently on the left side of the attack which seems to be his best position.

Moreover, he is a fantastic team player and helps out a lot defensively. I believe his stats will improve further once we sign Bruno Fernandes.
In recent months, I have seen him making more and more off the ball runs and anticipating the ball at the back post.

Positive signs especially with his partnership with Martial.
Next step will be to form a good understanding with Brandon Williams on the left flank.

As Ed001 pointed out previously, it's all down to his hardwork and keeping his feet on the ground.


3.) 13 Jan 2020 08:30:39
Maybe it's too early, but he's beginning to play like an older Cristiano Ronaldo recently played at real Madrid.
A lot of times I've seen him stay up top and not help defensively to turn over the opposition.


4.) 13 Jan 2020 08:57:37
Williams
Fred
Mctominay
James
Andreas
Rashford
Martial
Greenwood.

I believe that working under Ole has improved all of the above players not just Marcus. For anyone who does not see the green shoots, I wish you could see what I see, it's going to be beautiful again. I may be mad but I'm a dreamer.


5.) 13 Jan 2020 09:23:15
He has been brilliant. Developed his physique a lot this season. Ole has managed him well. Credit to him.


6.) 13 Jan 2020 13:59:48
Agree with you 100% Rosspique. I was tempted to write something similar a few days ago. I'm an ole believer and given time and the backing from above he will succeed. As for rashford he is starting to reap the rewards for his hardwork, he trains hard and always gives 100% when he pulls on the shirt. He for me should be the next captain, and is the player you build the team around.


 

 

04 Dec 2019 21:28:48
Wounder if ole will get a shout out for his tactics today?

The plot to play down aurier side. was that just coincidence

Out beating jose.


Shout out to fred and rashford they were good tonight.

bolger2

1.) 04 Dec 2019 21:45:18
Fred was great bar his part in their goal, great watching him pass the ball to the flanks. McTominay makes a huge difference though.

Yeah other than there goal but young is also accountable for that.


3.) 04 Dec 2019 21:55:08
Young and Lingard were both the poor elements in the team in all fairness.


4.) 04 Dec 2019 21:57:36
Their goal was to class can't really blame anyone sublime skill.
Rash motm by a mile.
Really good game first I've enjoyed for a month or more.
We were the better team.
Well done ole got most calls right tonight.


5.) 04 Dec 2019 22:10:30
Ken, Fred was far too easily outmuscled by Dele. Not saying what Dele did wasn't great, but you'd expect a PL footballer to be able to hold his own against him.


6.) 04 Dec 2019 22:32:11
Their goal came from Scott misplacing a pass 30 yards from his own goal, there were mistakes after that but that was the big mistake.


7.) 04 Dec 2019 22:33:55
LLV,

I thought Lingard caused them all sorts of problems with his movement tonight, I’d take him playing like that every week, he’s always been good against the better teams and struggled against the weaker teams, like the whole team at the moment really.


8.) 04 Dec 2019 22:38:33
There was 2 or 3 at fault for the goal but nobody seen that flick coming. Actually thought Fred was really good, offered protection and his use of the ball has improved so much these past few weeks. Mctominey bossed the middle of the park, added tempo and aggression to our play. As for Rashford, he was outstanding. To think he's already got 12 goals this season mostly from the wing in a team that's been playing so badly is a real credit to him. Shades of Ronaldo at times tonight!


9.) 04 Dec 2019 23:01:58
GDD2,

Lingard was poor tonight. He needs to go. He is simply not good enough.

{Ed0666's Note - I concur mate. Hasn’t fulfilled early potential and is more bothered about off field activities than on field ones. He’s a passenger at best.


10.) 04 Dec 2019 23:27:39
I have to confess that I did not expect us to win. I was fearing a three nil loss. The team played with aggression and at times no little skill so well done boys. That said Spurs didn't really turn up. Our next match will show how far we have come and how far we have to go.


11.) 04 Dec 2019 23:30:18
Lingard made the first goal with his pressing.


12.) 04 Dec 2019 23:51:26
ed0666 and not a very good one.


13.) 05 Dec 2019 02:32:51
Ole definitely deserves credit for the win today. But at the same time playing young could have backfired badly but for auerier deciding to cross like our fb's have done in recent times.

{Ed047's Note - Aurier has to be one of the worst RB’s I’ve ever seen


14.) 05 Dec 2019 04:38:30
Fred had one of his best games.
McTominay is just an energy machine.

Young just hoofed up the balls often instead of linking with other players.
Lingard was good with his pressing but poor with his touches.


15.) 05 Dec 2019 06:22:39
Props to Fred. An amazing game.
Lingard needs to go.


16.) 05 Dec 2019 10:21:01
Lingard did ok last night 😂😂.


17.) 05 Dec 2019 12:39:59
Happily confuseed about last nite as didn't expect the result or performances!
De gea couple of good saves, defense much better with young playing well and lindlehof constantly instructing the line to be held, midfield : Mctominay is developing into a definite when fit player who moves the ball well but also has a bit of grit to his game and fred had probably his best shift in a red shirt. The front 3 of rash, outstanding energy, james again tireless work and greenwood put in a good game made a very pleasant performance as well as result. The enigma is how so many players can be on/ off their game at once which is what we have seen for the best part of the year?
Overall summary- immense improvement must work harder to make this the norm.

This player brings up debates like no other on here but with rumours of bale wanting to leave and madrid happy to let him go we should try to convince him to sign in january

We are in desperate need of some sort of attacking threat.

And someone who can score goals

He may have a dodgy ankle but If he can stay fit we couldn't possible use him go escape relegation.

Bolger2,

He has the wrong attitude. He chose to play golf instead of giving it up as per RM medical advise.

We don't need another overhyped, big wage injury prone player.


2.) 09 Oct 2019 15:09:09
I'm with hatter. His medical problems are his own fault. I've never seen the fascination with golf.


3.) 09 Oct 2019 15:53:06
Not even as a short term loan?


4.) 09 Oct 2019 16:22:20
Nope. Not even for free.


5.) 09 Oct 2019 16:58:48
The type of player he has been will likely mean his injuries will happen more and more often and keep him sidelined for longer each time.

Add to that he ignores the medical advice given to him, then he is unlikely to be able to be fit often enough to make a significant impact.

Also he is said to be a difficult person in the dressing room, very much a loner at Real Madrid, not interested in doing what is needed to fit into a squad and ignores medical advice. These don't paint a great picture of him as a person.

We have enough over paid, lazy players with bad attitudes. Best give this one a swerve.

Guillem Balague: ""It is said that he likes golf more than football, and it is true that he does not live the profession with the intensity of others, either on or off the pitch. "


7.) 09 Oct 2019 17:15:47
I’m with Mort.


8.) 09 Oct 2019 23:10:33
Wow, the drama never stops. A sordid love triangle has emerged on the United page. Scoobydog is with Mort, while Mort is with Mad Hatter. Will Hatter find out, tune in next week for another exciting instalment 😂.

It will be a decent season if we can finish in the europa spots with this team.

What did we all expect. We always make a lot of noise under this current so called board and who ever else is part of the committee.


Then we always fail to deliver.


If we truly wanted him and was going to back the manager we would have signed him already.

norn if we could see progress no one would be bothered, if we saw that the club were trying to buy players to improve and match this invisible vision we could understand.

if they were making steps to sort the mess out, dof, improving the facilitates which are outdated ETC

the fact is we can't see a style of football, there's no progress, nothing that you can see and go " you know what a few players here and a few there and we will be sweet"

one of the eds hit the spot when they said until the gates start getting effected nothing will be done.

ole does need to go but the next manager is in the same situation. working under the same fools that don't have a clue.
