Mandzuikic links resurfacing according to The Athletic. His style reminds me a bit of Sheringham.
The problem is his age -34- and also if we were interested in summer, why didn't we sign him back then?


1.) 06 Oct 2019 11:08:08
Apparently it was too late in the transfer window for him to have time to think about the move but as he hasn't been part of Sarris squad for the season so far then he's open to it now.

2.) 06 Oct 2019 11:36:47
Would be another silly mistake imo - looking for short term fixes to long term problems again.
If we are really rebuilding, then rebuild with new materials not old ones.

3.) 06 Oct 2019 12:03:20
Ultimately I think it comes down to who is available in January.

Players who might be our first choices such as Maddison, Sancho and Moussa Dembele are unlikely to be available in January.

However, by not replacing players in the summer we are now left with a squad not good enough to compete for our ambitions this season.

Therefore, if we are to dip into the winter market to look for a solution then we will likely have to consider players who we maybe overlooked in the summer, as these are the only players who will be available.

4.) 06 Oct 2019 15:42:11
Betty. I get your point mate. But we are in desperate need of experience. Even the like of maddison and sancho are very young. I don't know much about mandzucic other than he is experienced and appears to be a good professional. We could do with a couple if players of that ilk to help the younger players for 18 months or so.
The caveat is that they must be the right type of character. The likes of him or modric or rakatic are all still capable and could help bring the younger guys on.
The kids we have don't have anybody to turn on the pitch when the thing gets tough and they need that imo. Better rakatic than fred for example. Garner and mctom would learn more in a week playing with him than 18 months with fred.

5.) 06 Oct 2019 15:54:50
Ken, I really wouldn't want Rakitic around influencing the young players. Not a role model.

6.) 06 Oct 2019 16:21:36
I get that shappy.

7.) 06 Oct 2019 18:40:20
Sack Ole. What ever he is trying to do . It ain't working . we are becoming a laughing stock

8.) 06 Oct 2019 20:30:15
Dead right Betty. We seem to keep making these mistakes and we don't learn. The club, manager, owners are a joke.

9.) 08 Oct 2019 10:23:56
I believe our team needs Mandzukic right now albeit for short term.
Our season will get ruined if we still place our hopes on injury prone/ inexperienced forwards.



14 Aug 2019 17:39:06
There is a rumour that Real Madrid might want to sent Luka Jovic on loan - maybe they already want to get rid of.
@Ed. (Assuming he can join us in the next transfer window) can you see Jovic alongside martial and rashford up front? Can it work?


{Ed004's Note - I cant see Jovic leaving so soon}

1.) 15 Aug 2019 07:24:57
Better chance of getting zidane. Not a happy camp there. Zidane will be in his toes jose will come in and pogba will be reaching for his Italian phrase book again😂😂.

2.) 15 Aug 2019 08:50:21
It was actually reported a few weeks back that Perez was looking at jose and pogba woukdnt be part of the long term plan .
Things change in football.

3.) 15 Aug 2019 09:31:50
I untimely think that's why they never went for him jred.

4.) 15 Aug 2019 12:03:25
I think the 27m + James Rodriguez bid proved how little an appetite Real Madrid had for seriously pursuing Pogba.

The fact that they are now seriously exploring a deal for Neymar shows that the money is there if they really want a player. I think it also shows that the manager doesn't dictate the signings at Real Madrid.
In which case does it really matter how much Zidane wants Pogba, if other people at the club don't want him then he won't go there.

I think this summer was his real chance to go to Real Madrid. I think he might have missed it, unless he has a storming season this year and proves himself to be a "Galactico".

5.) 15 Aug 2019 12:43:31
And yet in the run up to deadline day people were pointing to Madrid as an example of how to do a rebuild. Now we're talking potential change of manager who probably won't like some of the players.

6.) 15 Aug 2019 13:18:44
Have madrid bought well?
I 100% like the direction we have taken this summer .
Keep reading pogba will sulk because he didn't get his move, but you have to wonder what move? Madrid seem to have put money on the table for hazard and neymar.
Juve put dybala on the table for lukaku .

7.) 15 Aug 2019 16:15:56
Just saying that's what a few people on here saying. That Madrid had identified players and moved quick to get them in and lamenting that we hadn't done the same. I think we had s good window. I'd have liked another midfielder to add depth but wasn't to be.



19 Jul 2019 18:24:14
According to L Equipe, Pogba is still waiting calmly for his transfer to Real. Should we take them seriously? Usually they re quite reliable, no?


1.) 19 Jul 2019 19:28:00
Id say he is nowhere near as calm as he was. Real can't shift players and are not coming up with the cash we want.

2.) 19 Jul 2019 22:21:49
Who actually cares? You wake up worrying if Pogba will leave or not?

3.) 20 Jul 2019 05:42:31
As I said before neither Real or Juve can afford Pogba right now.



19 Jul 2019 15:40:31
New CB link -Mirah Demiral who just signed for Juventus. Probably Bs.


1.) 19 Jul 2019 16:41:37
Just signed for them and linked with us?

2.) 19 Jul 2019 17:27:44
Apparently they bought him to loan him out again because with DeLigt, Bonucci, Chellini it's going to be difficult for him.
BTW his idol is Vidic. :)

3.) 19 Jul 2019 18:31:42
Mine's Roy Keane. Sign me up.

4.) 19 Jul 2019 19:33:56
Ed002 says not for sale and him and deligt are expected to be the new cb pairing for juve st the beginning of 20/ 21 season.
I know little or nothing of him but juve do know how to pick and mould a cb.
Juve still want pogba but want to include players in the deal.
Im not sure i fancy any of the names on the list for our squad with the exception of kean who is likely to go elsewhere.

ED002, any idea what s going on with De Gea?

The Guardian is saying, he will sign soon but we ve been hearing same story for some time now.



{Ed002's Note - If MU make an acceptable offer he may well sign - else he will look to a very lucrative offer from elsewhere.}

1.) 09 Sep 2019 20:17:01
Liverpool fan here in peace. I've obviously not seen as much of De Gea recently as you guys, and all I really see is the high profile bloopers he's been making.

Would you really be happy if he signed a new long term contract putting him on the same wages as Paul Pogba? £290k per week. I know it's not your money but surely with his form (admittedly, in the limited coverage I've seen), would you be happy with that?

2.) 09 Sep 2019 20:17:38
I say sell. Past his best.

3.) 09 Sep 2019 20:46:07
Mort. I don't think Sell is an option.

Firstly, I don't think that anyone would want to disrupt their defence by changing their first choice goalkeeper in the middle of the season.

Secondly, and in addition to the first point, why would anyone do that when they can talk to him in January in regards to moving to them on a free transfer.

4.) 09 Sep 2019 22:25:50
Get rid. I've been saying this for two years. No command of his area, terrible distribution, never comes for crosses, and his communication with the defence is nonexistent.

5.) 10 Sep 2019 07:25:05

Command of the area is an issue with DDG, the defenders don’t know what is happening behind them. Schmeichel was utterly commanding and when I played you wanted a commanding keeper. I would have sold him if he didn’t sign a new contract last January. Now we are in the last year and again are in same position as Herrera. Why is no one questioning Woodward for losing one multi million pound asset of the business and about to lose another even more valuable one?
I would give Henderson a chance.

6.) 10 Sep 2019 09:04:26
Red Man the fans have mentioned it but the club ignores us mostly until it needs an excuse to pull the plug on spending to they can blame toxic fans. Journos don't mention it as its all a laugh to them, given their club loyalties and its another excuse to kick the club and do more click bait articles. The owners won't mention it because they dint have a clue. They're American. There are no transfers in American sports. Just trades and drafts. Woodward probably sells it to them as more cost cutting. Personally I think he's trying to get the wage bill down. But then why renew the likes of rojo. What's changed in two years.

7.) 10 Sep 2019 09:35:19
Bye bye DdG.

8.) 10 Sep 2019 10:12:53
I think that Henderson looks to be our future no.1 and wouldn't be unhappy to see him step up next year.

9.) 10 Sep 2019 17:43:18
angelred. If you don't sign a DdG replacement (which I actually think you will), then surely Sergio Romero deserves a spell as first choice.

He signed for you as Argentina's number one and has been loyal for all the years since he's been there and never kicked up a fuss. I think it would be a real kick in the knackers to him to let a young keeper leapfrog him in the race for the gloves.

He's had nearly 100 caps for Argentina but now can't even get on the bench for the them due to lack of club first team football.

10.) 13 Sep 2019 01:32:41
Cant believe some fans would even come out with things non logical like yh sell are 1 and only world class player yh he's not had say a good 6 to 12 months but the guy for me personal opinion has kept us up there without him over past 5 years were mid table at best we need to look at other players that are sorry not good enough lingard wouldn't get anywhere near the top teams rashford has got potential within his pace that's it the more a watch him more a no he's a selfish player not a team players a mean shoots from 40 yards and stuff and goes nowhere think he should be dropped and Greenwood promoted ahead of him honestly think he's a better player already proper forward that lad p. s martal is main striker for me he's most clinical player in the team he should be pen taker.



28 Jul 2019 13:07:21
A report published just before the start of last season states that United had 3 of the top 5 most paid players in Epl.
Thing is that 2 of these 3 - Pogba and Lukaku want to leave and the other (Sanchez) has been a flop.

Imo we should get rid of all 3. There s no use keeping someone who wants to leave (Pogba and Lukaku) or that cannot offer much (Sanchez) .


1.) 28 Jul 2019 14:22:52
Agreed. But as ed has said, it’s going to be extremely difficult to shift Sanchez due to the size of his wages. I’d look to get rid of all three and bring in players who are on less money and more committed to the cause. As tiny part of me hopes Sanchez can kick on. It’s probably unlikely but I’d love nothing more if he could because at his peak at arsenal, he was the best player in the league for me.

2.) 28 Jul 2019 14:45:16
If a Chinese club is willing to pay Bale 1m/ week, surely one can cough up 500k for Sanchez, hypothetically of course.

3.) 28 Jul 2019 15:01:55
Completely forgot alexis sanchez played for us, thanks for reminding me.

Worst signing the club has ever made.

4.) 28 Jul 2019 15:44:53
The wages will be a problem.

Inter are the only ones interested in Lukaku and they're struggling to put together an acceptable bid as they also need to cover his wage demands.

Madrid need to offload Bale to bring in Pogba. I'm not sure it'll happen this summer.

The big European sides won't touch Sanchez as the decline is obvious. There's only really China that can afford him so its a case of conning one of their teams into taking him on. Assuming that he agrees to go to China as well.



13 Jul 2019 19:13:29
I think Lukaku to Inter is close. United are saying otherwise because they re playing hard ball.

LVG recently said that most decisions are ultimately taken by Woodward and Judge.
And there are rumours that Jose didn't want Fred but had to accept him once told it's Fred or nothing.

The proposed agreement apparently consists of a loan move for 1 year and option to buy next season set at 15m. While on loan, United will have to pay part of Sanchez salary.
Depends a lot on the amount.

At this stage, let Sanchez leave on a free looks like the best option for both parties, no?

It s becoming clear now why no more players were signed in Summer.

The club decided it must balance the books first after the senseless spending in the last few years.

Lots of noises about Rakitic and Mandzuikic to us.
I can understand the move Mandzuikic - a short term fix for 10 years. Less than for Rakitic - past his best but still costing 30 million plus high wages. Not sure of English football would suit him at his age considering he spent his better years playing at a much slower tempo.
Tbh I m not very enthusiastic about former Barcelona and Real Madrid players. They see us as a step down and they lose the hunger to play.

8 signings? We took all summer to sign 3 players. With 1 deal at a time, we LL need a year to sign 8 :)

From what Ed47 said, I m getting the impression that part of Ole s job is to
- move certain players out
-integrate as much youngsters as possible, to see which ones could make it or not
-See if certain players whose career stalled like Martial can improve
-sign new players to build a new team.

The main issue apart from the poor performance is that budget for new players is limited (100 m net spending was mentioned in summer) . Moreover the lengthy process every transfer took, didn't help. The excuse that the club works only on 1 transfer at a time, Imo was to cover up the clubs lack of ambition in the transfer market.

Now we ended with a squad unbalanced - very light in midfield and upfront. So light that we re almost dependent on two players - Martial and Pogba (and to a lesser extent on James) who both are injured.

I imagine that the top managers around would not have accepted these conditions because they knew that the team was in for a rough ride.

I might be wrong but that s my impression of the state of affairs.
