Linked with grealish again, I still think he would of been an excellent signing on the summer . Carried on this season where he left off last season, been very good imo.

jred

1.) 10 Nov 2020 22:20:27
I think Villa staying up cost us signing Grealish for max £50m last summer. As soon as they avoided relegation it was £80m or nothing and fair play for sticking to their valuation. We quickly moved on to a slightly different player in Van de Beek for half the quoted Grealish price. Very much a missed opportunity for me. I’d prioritise Grealish over Sancho. Not that I see us back in for him now.


2.) 11 Nov 2020 12:47:03
He’s exactly where he needs to be for me, big fish in a small pond.

He’s a talented player but he strikes me as someone who needs to be the centre of attention. His off-field antics don’t do him any favours either.


3.) 11 Nov 2020 13:10:51
Just read a comment that tickled me:
“Put Grealish on a pitch. Now tie his lgs together and he’s still better than J Henderson”. 😂.


4.) 11 Nov 2020 15:48:50
scoobydog
That is one of the most absurd and idiotic thing I have ever read. Grealish maybe better than what I think of him but he is nowhere near Jordan Henderson. Maybe JG might have more natural talent but Henderson's mindset is above most professionals let alone a flawed person off the field like JG.


5.) 11 Nov 2020 16:02:07
The humour bypass went well I see 😂.


6.) 12 Nov 2020 01:48:11
I got that your post was meant as humourous but still I found more absurdity in the comment scoobydog.
I don't think its your opinion either.


7.) 12 Nov 2020 11:29:52
What an absurd thing to find. 😉.

Looks like we have signed cavani.

jred

1.) 03 Oct 2020 19:07:24
Am I the only one who is genuinely excited about Cavani.
He would give us a different dimention to our game. I know many fans are thinking Alexis take two but I think Cavani could offer us alot. Is it desperate? Maybe. But we need another CF and we could do a lot worse than him.


2.) 03 Oct 2020 19:07:25
He's a very good player but I hope this isn't true. Very high wages and signing on fee for a number 9 when we badly need reinforcements in other areas ahead of that.

The Telles deal seems dead but if we couldn't stretch an extra few million for him but are willing to pay Cavani very high wages for a year or two, it shows the amateurs are at it again.


3.) 03 Oct 2020 19:10:09
Desperation.


4.) 03 Oct 2020 19:21:49
If it’s the only signing I’ll be gutted. If he supplements a left back and right winger I’ll be delighted.


5.) 03 Oct 2020 19:21:54
I don't like these kind of signings to be honest I think you should build for the future.
That said he might be a good fit with how we play, can and will play any of the front 3 positions .
2 years younger than ibra was when he signed .
But not the way forward imo, have to see how he does tho . Time will tell.

{Ed047's Note - to be fair, you have a fair few younger players and have been buying up more, your current front 3 our still young so can only really be a plus.


6.) 03 Oct 2020 19:22:25
Feels desperate - but if he comes as well as a RW then that’s more like it. Adds some serious firepower and a proper No9.


7.) 03 Oct 2020 19:22:40
I’d be happy with him too.
Ighalo gets worse each time he plays, whilst Martial is either incredible or woeful. Cavani will give us a genuine alternative option and he WILL score goals.


8.) 03 Oct 2020 19:26:17
He is a far better player than ighalo.


9.) 03 Oct 2020 19:26:33
We need maturity and we need winners, people with the right mentality. He may be past his best but he ticks those boxes and he’s still class.


10.) 03 Oct 2020 19:33:15
Cavani is injury prone, will demand huge sign on fee and huge wages, more than 33 years old.
Panic buy written all over it.


11.) 03 Oct 2020 19:58:53
Can any of the eds comment on hia professionalism, attitude etc? Is he a good guy to have around?

{Ed002's Note - I have no interest in any tittle tattle about the incident with the koala bear.}


12.) 03 Oct 2020 20:05:18
Cavani will be an excellent veteran for our young players to learn from, just like Blanc and Larsson were, just like Mata is.


13.) 03 Oct 2020 20:11:55
Well we do have a history of signing big name stars past their best, the new Zlatan or Falcao. Shows a bit of desperation though as no way Cavani was a target at the beginning of the transfer window.
Makes you wonder what our transfer policy is, make stupid bids on top targets then sign a free agent who no-one else wanted.


14.) 03 Oct 2020 20:19:53
Would this signing be instead of pursuing a RW?


15.) 03 Oct 2020 20:22:04
Ed02 I have literally no idea what you're talking about.

{Ed002's Note - That is good - you won’t find out from me.}


16.) 03 Oct 2020 21:42:10
LOL Ed, we need more characters with koala gear tendencies.


17.) 03 Oct 2020 21:44:44
Signing another player past his best on massive wages. Just when I thought you couldn't get any dumber, you do something like this. And totally redeem yourself!


18.) 03 Oct 2020 22:15:52
When people say he’s injury prone, do they mean he had a few injuries last season? He’s not been injury prone at all in his career and been rated highly wherever he’s played.


19.) 04 Oct 2020 07:50:38
I think this is a clever move i really do we needed another striker and u don't get much better than Cavani on a free if he's half the player he used to be then that's still miles better than ighalo.
I think its more important we get telles shaws not good enough and is always injured too and offers nothing going forward same as AWB on the other side so i would shift williams to RB play him and telles on either side would give us a whole new dimension as our full backs are too defensive for my likig at the moment.


20.) 04 Oct 2020 10:32:47
Ed002, I heard it was a Koala bear and it's mum wasn't very happy about it.

That's not correct mate. Their deals have been extended to coincide with the remainder of the serie A season. Nothings been agreed for next season as of yet.

It’s obvious his head has been turned however with C.V. 19 etc I just can’t see us paying what Dortmund want. There might not be anyone pay it either so he could very well stay. Think it’s best for the lad to get on with it and not burn any bridges, after all Dortmund have been good for him.

10 wins and 3 draws in our last 13 games .
On a great run at the moment.

Better run than Liverpool that's for sure.


 

 

18 Jan 2021 09:08:17
12 games unbeating in the league 9 wins 3 draws.
People myself included said let's see where me are in January. Well we are top .

jred

1.) 18 Jan 2021 09:34:42
Agree Jred. A potential 40 points from the first half of the season is probably slightly above par for the squad we have, but given the lack of match sharpness in the first 4 weeks of the season (7 points from 6 games), i think we have done well. Another 40 points in the second half will get us into the top 4 and maybe 5-8 points off the eventual champions.

80 points is about the most we can hope for i think. We need a top CF. winger, CB and CDM for the additional 10 points which will see us challenging for the title. From what Ed 002 says, these are the positions we are looking for so fingers crossed. I do have concerns on how much we will spend in the summer though. Hopefully we clear the squad this month and its a buyers market.

Solksjaer has improved our return enough to suggest that he deserves to be backed by the board and the fans. Where his ceiling is, i don't know, but he is doing a better job managing the players, media and the football than the 3 experienced winners who came before him.


 

 

14 Jan 2021 08:49:04
Rashford again holding the government to account, a young lad who has spoke about going hungry himself.
And yet there are posts on here about him being a big time Charlie 🤦‍♂️.
Some things are bigger than football.

jred

1.) 14 Jan 2021 11:47:15
Jred I don’t think anyone is saying that what he has done off the field isn’t short of outstanding and we are all very proud of the fact that he is from our club. But saying that his off field work can excuse his poor form is nonsense. They are both separate. He is an amazing kid doing amazing work for the kids, but as a footballer, his form has been poor for 2 months. Nothing more to it.


2.) 14 Jan 2021 11:28:45
jred, I must admit I was quite shocked to read some of the posts on here a couple of weeks ago. You expect a bit of it from rival fans who are just trying to get a rise, but for our own fans to say he's selfish is beyond belief. I think it was Andy Robertson who said he might be the first United player to get a standing ovation at Anfield.

23 years old, Wythenshawe boy (as myself) with a direct line to the Prime Minister. What he's achieved in the past 10 months is incredible.

Did you watch his interview with Tubes on Soccer AM? It all started after he got his back injury last March. He and his family were reflecting on their experiences and how lucky they've been due to football. So they decided to do something to help kids in Manchester, which quickly spread to the rest of the UK.

{Ed007's Note - Yeah because most revolutionaries take the knee and accept meaningless baubles and titles from the people they're fighting against.}


3.) 14 Jan 2021 11:59:45
007 what would Rashford achieve if he took a stand against the Government. He's working with them and achieving great things.

Conflict achieves very little these days.

{Ed007's Note - Well he certainly achieved his MBE from the people he's "working with" 🤮 How can he be fighting against Government policies but not making a stand?}


4.) 14 Jan 2021 12:34:40
I am the one saying he is selfish. Ozil give half his wages as per Ed001, so if i see he is selfish in matches i must not admit it? There are stories Ronaldo gives a lot of money too, so he can't be selfish because of that?
Off field actions helped the image of Rashford a lot and some people are confused because they see him always in tabloids for good reasons . For whatever reason he does what he does of the field, i congratulate him. But i only junge him based on his performances, and they are not top class.


5.) 14 Jan 2021 12:39:13
Ed I'm not really sure what you are getting at. He accepted some recognition for good work. Are you saying he should have refused?

If so, what does that achieve?

{Ed007's Note - Yes he should have refused it, said he wasn't doing what he was doing for meaningless plaudits and baubles from a) the people who have caused the problems he is fighting against and b) a family that have enough money to end world hunger/poverty and still be billionaires.}


6.) 14 Jan 2021 12:55:55
🙄

I really don't see what that would achieve Ed. Rashford has the Government on side, and publicly.

What happens if he refuses the honour? The public think he's a hero, but the Government cut him off. It makes no sense at all to do that.

{Ed007's Note - That wouldn't have happened though, not with the wave of public support he has. What does having an MBE mean except that you are actually part of The Establishment, the same people Rashford is making a stand against?
If you're fighting against child poverty you shouldn't be accepting a worthless - pat on the head like a good wee boy - medal from the head of a family worth over £7 billion - you can't see the hypocrisy in that?}


7.) 14 Jan 2021 13:26:10
Ed, no I don't. Rashford isn't financially responsible for solving child poverty. He gives a great deal but the root of the problem is with the Government and privatisation.

On a personal level Rashford has come from the biggest council estate in Europe. No doubt he has great pride in what he and his family have achieved. As a kid he couldn't have ever dreamt about getting an MBE. It's a huge achievement for him.

If that's a personal gain from all the good he has done for others, how is that a problem? Why shouldn't he receive a pat on his head as you put it?

I just don't see what he would have achieved by fighting against the Government. He has them on-side. They will achieve a hell of a lot more by working together, compared to if he was just another mouthy celebrity robbing off on social media. There's no better way to approach the fight than he has done so far imo. The proof is in the conversations which have been made available to the public. Marcus and Boris spoke just this week and good has come from that conversation. By fighting against the establishment, that conversation does not take place and nothing is done.

{Ed007's Note - Charitable work is supposed to be selfless, if you're doing it for personal gain, reward or kudos then you're doing it wrong. Accepting an MBE because of your charitable work is very, very far from selfless.}


8.) 14 Jan 2021 13:36:30
I wish people would keep politics off here but if you are going to talk about about how Rashford went hungry himself. There are two points
1) He would have gone hungry during circa 13 years of a Blair/ Brown Government and not the present one
2) If he was on our books why were the club not helping him

I think we should applaud the influence for good and the fact that there was a decisive change of direction on the back of his flagging an issue. Unusual for a Government of any make up to listen and act so quickly. He has the opportunity to be a good influence and therefore he should accept honours for it, work with people not against them. It seems to be working.


9.) 14 Jan 2021 13:40:09
So Ed007 you are saying that he is hypocrite and he does that to build his profile?

{Ed007's Note - No, I'm saying he's a hypocrite for accepting the MBE. As for it all helping build his profile - you might think that but I couldn't possibly comment.}


10.) 14 Jan 2021 14:09:09
Thanks Ed007. I don't know if its only for his profile but something doesn't sit right for me, i don't know exactly. I see some hypocrisy there and in the last two years i see organised movements for him to be well spoken both on and of the field.
I agree that charity work must be selfness and not for personal reasons and when Ed001 said that Ozil gives half his wages i was over the moon because always liked Mesut. I don't think a lot of people knew about charities of Ozil and that's true charities. Rashford reminds me a little bit of Salah who takes a professional photographer with him trying to build his profile and become the poster boy.

{Ed007's Note - And it distracts everyone from the fact he's $hite at football 😂


11.) 14 Jan 2021 14:22:42
Ed, I don't think for one second that Rashford is doing this for his own benefit. He's come from a humbling area to say the least.

I hope he continues to do what he's doing so those in need get more help, and if he rightly gets recognition for what he does, while many others stand by, then good for him. At least he's not like Bono, sending out a press release for every pound he gives to charity 😂


Red Man.
1) Have you seen the 10 day food boxes dished out earlier this week? People are still going hungry because these private companies sending out packages are making a lot of profit from it.
2) The club helped him a lot. Just watch some of his interviews. The club helped feed him and took him to/ from training. He says he owes the club everything.

{Ed007's Note - Do you know why Bono wears those daft glasses? It's so he can't see how much of an evil **** he is when he looks in the mirror. Don't get me started on him 🤬🤬👊💦


12.) 14 Jan 2021 14:23:36
And that's the reason he is selfish in the pitch 007. No matter how rubbish is or not, scoring goals means he will always be in tabloids and the fans will give us useless statistics with reasons why he is a very good player and he is better than Ronaldo in his first 100 matches etc.
I don't say he is not talented, he is. But his head has turned and he is trying to become something else from what he really is. He is like Pogba, when he is not so obsessed for moments of magic spectacular goals and Hollywood passes and play for his team, he is a very good player.


13.) 14 Jan 2021 14:48:44
We're on common ground regards Bono, Ed 😂 😂 😂.

{Ed007's Note - 😂👍

Yes I saw the photos, there again so did the PM thanks to Rashford and made a change immediately.


15.) 14 Jan 2021 16:13:11
Rashford the footballer needs to be judged on how he does on the football field and not what he is doing sitting on the queens lap. I think Tony and I have had countless debates on Rashford and even he now admits that Rashford has been poor for quite some time now. So yes, Rashford doesn't play for his team mates most times.

Rashford the human being is doing great things and i applaud that. Hypocrite or not, i am not judging.


16.) 14 Jan 2021 16:15:44
Ed 007 chill gosh why does it matter so much to you whether Rashford accepts an MBE or not. All that really matters is what his off field work is achieving.

He has positively affected the lives of many many people and used his standing in football to do so. If his MBE helps even one percent more to open doors enabling his work to achieve more then it is worth it.

Also you may feel that he is selling out by accepting an award but I do not for one second believe he started out or ever had the intention of doing what he has done to gain an official award like an MBE.

Also just because you personally see no value in such awards does not mean you are right. You are perfectly entitled to your opinion but plenty of people disagree with your views.

Also the fact that a young man from an under privileged background has risen from obscurity to such a level may not inspire you but it might very well do others like him.

Lastly getting an MBE or other award may mean little to you but maybe to his mum and family they will derive huge pleasure from seeing their boy do so well. All the hours they devoted to his upbringing, working three jobs, doing without things. well now they have some payback.

Why can't we just celebrate an outstanding achievement.

{Ed007's Note - Have you ever thought of writing for Hallmark?}

18.) 14 Jan 2021 16:49:25
He’s not fighting against the Government he’s campaigning to change Government Policy and highlight the issue of child hunger in one of the biggest economies in the World.

The kid is desperately trying to do some good and raise awareness of a very important issue. No child should ever go without food in a civilised society and our Government should be held to account. Surely we all want our children to be fed at school and to be educated in a safe and nurturing environment.

He’s a footballer not a politician, revolutionist or anarchist. He’s campaigning for an issue close to his heart and in the process making a difference to thousands of children throughout the country. He should be encouraged and celebrated for tackling an important issue not vilified for accepting an award which only detracts from the issue and undermines his good work.

Criticising Rashford for accepting an award and then crudely suggesting he’s only interested in raising his own profile only succeeds in changing the narrative from child hunger to attention seeking footballer which merely assists those who are opposed to this cause.

Rashford has done a brilliant job of rousing public opinion ensuring that the Government listens to its citizens and upholds their values. Well done Marcus Rashford keep up the good work!


19.) 14 Jan 2021 17:10:53
DLIB

No child should ever go without food but it’s not just the Government, parents should also be held to account for feeding their own children. I know people who struggled badly but admit they feel ashamed they put cigarettes before feeding their kids.

I wish we could move away from politics on here.


20.) 14 Jan 2021 17:14:17
Shan - Rashford has 7 league goals and 5 assists second only to Fernandes who takes the penalties.

He scored the winner against PSG and got a hat-rick against Leipzig!

In recent weeks he’s scored a last minute winner against Wolves and provided the assists for winning goals against Southampton and Burnley. All that is just off the top of my head!

If he’s not playing well I can’t wait until he hits some form and if Rashford doesn’t play who takes his place?!

I think your barking up the wrong tree mate but your entitled your to opinion.


21.) 14 Jan 2021 18:08:43
Red Man - Some parents can be selfish or cruel but that doesn’t mean a child should ever go hungry. It’s not their fault what family they were born into and having a school dinner might be the only decent meal they get each day. Should we let them suffer because their own parents don’t look after them?!

We’re not talking about sending them away on exotic Holidays but providing our most vulnerable children with a warm meal whilst they are at school. This shouldn’t even be a debate in my opinion. If we don’t want our taxes to be spent on safeguarding vulnerable children then where do we want our money to be spent?! The divorce bill for Brexit perhaps?!

I think we have a collective responsibility as a society to safeguard all our children, especially when their own parents neglect them. Children are innocent, they deserve our compassion and protection.

I’m not sure we’re even talking politics. We should be celebrating a local lad, one of our own, campaigning to raise awareness and put pressure on our government to safeguard our most vulnerable children and recognise the conscience of its people.

When his motives are challenged especially in the absence of any evidence I think we should vehemently defend him and make sure the focus remains on the issue of child hunger and not footballer seeks to raise his own profile through charitable work.


22.) 14 Jan 2021 18:52:56
DLiB

Children should not go hungry but nor is it the Government’s sole responsibility to feed them. When people are on here talking about holding the government to account then this looks just like other social media outlets and not a football page.

If we want to talk more about Rashford then we should talk about his skills, his strong points, his areas to improve on the pitch whilst applaud his efforts to help kids.


23.) 14 Jan 2021 19:04:51
Red man - Fair enough pal I just thought he deserved to be defended after some of the comments.

I know I can go on a bit for which I apologise I didn’t want to turn it into a crusade maybe I got a bit carried away!


24.) 14 Jan 2021 19:49:38
No worries DLIB, I wasn’t having a go at Rashford but I am fed up with an anti government bandwagon using what Rashford is doing as a rod to strike them with. By communicating Rashford is showing maturity, a maturity he needs to develop on the pitch. Maybe next time he will ring the PM before going to the press, it’s called being smart. We shall see.


25.) 14 Jan 2021 20:06:29
I don't think its governments full responsibility. Incomes of government is taxes. And, althought its not as simple, taxes are supposed to be reciprocal. Although i don't defend governments maybe its not as easy to feed so much childrens without cut money for example from health etc.


 

 

13 Jan 2021 08:39:59
Another 3 points last night takes us 3 points clear, another step in the right direction.
Physically we matched them in the first half second half i though we played well .
I will say again on pogba, I think he is playing well and has been for a while .
Injured last year, C.V. start of the season but finding his form now .

We look like a team, a team that is playing and fighting for the manager still room for improvement but definitely going in the right direction imo.

jred

1.) 13 Jan 2021 09:38:49
Yh agree on that, at no point has ole lost the dressing room even during the really tough times which is probably the most important aspect of modern management because once you lose the players you're finished.

On pogba, ole is helping by picking the right horses for the right courses, the last 3 games with a matic pogba pivot have been burnley, wolves and sheff utd, 3 games where we are likely to dominate ball posession.

Against villa, leeds, leicester and city where we have more defending to do, fred and mctominays energy is required and pogba plays higher up on the left so he's not exposed defensively.

That being said i thought pogba was impressive defensively last night, won a lot of important aeriel duels and a lot of second balls from barnes and wood.


2.) 13 Jan 2021 09:42:53
Pogba when on is world class, despite what the detractors will tell you. The problem has been him being off more than on. 3 points clear of scouse, for me Sunday is a must not lose. I want to win every game but I would take a scrappy point right now, we are starting to get that winning momentum that we haven't had in years, winning games when the opposition is stubborn has been a problem but we are finding a way. I would love it if Ole won the league, imagine the egg on peoples faces, long way to go so let's just enjoy being competitive again.


3.) 13 Jan 2021 10:44:27
Good post jred.

I'm yet to be convinced by PP. Hoverer he's had more good games in the past 5 weeks than he did in the previous 5 years.

Bigger tests to come for him. He's starting to show he can do it against the Burnleys of the league. Can he do it against Liverpool.

I'd love to be proved wrong.


4.) 13 Jan 2021 18:58:33
Hr ain't world class and is playing well so he can get a move.


 

 

12 Jan 2021 22:24:28
Roll on the Liverpool match, 3 points clear at the top .

jred

1.) 12 Jan 2021 23:36:39
Great win tonight.
We ground them down. they hardly threatened. I thought maguire was excellent. Couple of chances missed by cavani and martial. Good strike from pogba got a bit lucky.
Personally i thought maguire goal was 50/ 50 you would be looking for a free out if it were reversed. In todays game its 50/ 50 imo.
I thought Brady got lucky as he'd of seen red but i thought shaw's was a foul and ciuld have been red but yellow was fair imo.
Only negatives were a couple of injuries.
Chance to go 6 clear at the weekend and dump Liverpool into 5th. It may only be a fleeting moment so we should all enjoy it to see ourselves top and them 5th
If we can cement it with a win or draw at the weekend it would be perfect.

Although with 1 year on his contract it won't be a massive amount .
I've said this the last couple of seasons but I don't think he will leave.

I've said this before but last season from January onwards our points total was very similar to Liverpool and City. So has that much changed this season?
Although it was s difficult situation last year as well.

It was a really strange start to the season with teams having different pre seasons etc but teams are up and running now .
Leicester are 1 point worse off than this point last season, city on exactly the same points and both them teams where second and third at this point last season.
Chelsea are 3 points worse off spurs 4 better off.
There are some big changes but you do get that, villa and Sheffield have swapped

Thr big difference at the top is liverpool who had 52 points after 18 games last season but i'm not sure any one was going to hit the season running like that .

If you watch it pogba doesn't go with the runner, it points at him and shouts but he doesn't go with him and just watches him break the line.

Pogba been doing it for a couple of month now imo, after more or less a full season out and C.V. he looks fit and on it . I think he benefits from the fact people look at bruno more.
Shaws only issue is staying injury free he has been playing well for a few seasons now imo.
Maguire after a really poor start to the season for various reasons goes under the radar but again I think he is playing well . Wins everything in the box and starts a lot of our moves, builds a lot .
Fred again has carried on from last season really busy in cm.
I think there where signs again we lack a bit if energy in cm with both pogba and bruno in a cm 3, might not get away with it against the better teams .
Bruno started of well yesterday but faded .
I'm going to go against the grain and say I thought there was improvement with both martial and greenwood last night, a lot more needed tho .
Like against Burnley we dropped of the last 5 minutes and I think this might be the issue this season. This team hasn't got the experience of a title run in .
Also both games should of been put to bed early on .
But we needed a win yesterday after city and Leicester won .
Got to say I thought city looked a different class yesterday.
