Hi ed002.
I know you don't like providing updates but thought i'd ask if any clubs are showing interest in some of the players that we would like to move on this summer?
Darmian rojo sanchez tfm in particular?
Secondly do you think inter will be able to make an acceptable offer for lukaku and get a deal done?


{Ed002's Note - Darmian could end up at Inter but he is down the list. Rojo is limited in which countries he can move to which means he will be used in horse trading if they can. Nothing has changed with Sanchez.}

1.) 02 Jul 2019 20:01:56
Ed002 thank you.
To be fair you did say they would bee hard to shift.
Did you miss the second question or just choose to ignore it hooing i'd take the hint? 😁.

{Ed002's Note - Inter would like to include players.}

2.) 03 Jul 2019 22:36:32
Cheers. Pity its the wrong players. Probably be three case with pogba do i'd imagine with juve and real Madrid looking to move some players on.



01 Jun 2019 10:00:55
I was told this morning by the same person that told me about lukaku and lindelof before they signed that fernandes from SL will be joining us.
He has also told me that he is not the only expected arrival from Portugal.
He has said that the club have already agreed 2 signings and are looking at a minimum of 5 players with 2 agreed and 2 very close.
This guy is working in the legal sector and has never once given me inaccurate info and has worked with the club for / with the last 8 years.
I think the last time i posted on his info was the signing of herrera which he says was very complicated.
Issues remain with being unable to move some unwanted players on.


{Ed004's Note - If we are signing 5 players hopefully be a rb cb cdm cm and attacker. Hopefully, you are right Ken}

1.) 01 Jun 2019 10:38:01
Please let this be true Ken.

2.) 01 Jun 2019 10:43:18

Thanks, I wonder if Fernandes being purchased would prevent any possibility of interest in James Maddison. If so, it’s a pity as Maddison looks to have good potential and I understand he is also a United fan which is an added bonus in the motivation stakes. I haven’t seen Fernandes but is he the player we need when our Manager seemed to be heading in a different direction? Yes stats are useful but don’t tell the whole picture and seem to recall you are more in touch with Portuguese football so interested in your opinion.

3.) 01 Jun 2019 10:57:09
Interesting Ken, If I was to guess the second player from Portugal I would say Ruben Dias of Benfica is most likely.

Red Man, that might be the case. I'm not sure Maddison has ever been high on the clubs wanted list. Which is a real shame as he could be an excellent signing for us.

Although if Ole wanted to introduce his 4222 style system than Gary Neville said he was keen on while taking his badges then we could sign sign BOTH Fernandes and Maddison and play them both in the advanced midfield two behind the strikers. That would be mouth watering and we would provide hat fulls of chances for our strikers.

4.) 01 Jun 2019 11:12:32
Any info on the other players Ken?

{Ed004's Note - Id guess the 2nd player is Felix. Both players have been heavily linked and Ed2 has mentioned our interest in both}

5.) 01 Jun 2019 10:57:09

6.) 01 Jun 2019 11:36:22
Thanks for passing on the info Ken. Must say that is very exciting news! Hope it’s true.

7.) 01 Jun 2019 12:07:06
He was sure on fernandes and i know not to ask him names as tells me as much as he can. He often has no idea of what's going on unless he has some involvement in a professional capacity.
No idea on what positions or on who the 2nd player targeted from Portugal is. But its not as far down the line as fernandes obviously
He did say that there was efforts Being made to move players on again no names.
This guy is not even a big football fan and he supports Charlton😱.

8.) 01 Jun 2019 12:49:50
I'd say one of the two already agreed is James. No idea on the other or the second from Portugal.

Maddison is a good player but why would Leicester sell their best player.

9.) 01 Jun 2019 12:56:13
So hypothetically if the club is looking to bring in 5 players and we know the areas of concern (rb, cb, dm, cam, RW) this could mean.
James - RW
Fernandes - CAM
Diaz - CB
That leaves rb and dm
Rice and AWB anyone?

10.) 01 Jun 2019 14:51:36
If Fernandes comes in, would that mean Pogba is closer to leaving?

11.) 01 Jun 2019 15:01:23
Rumour of the window so far! Like it Ken.

That would be a cracking summer of business Perth.
Still feel we need a quality striker.

12.) 01 Jun 2019 15:21:05
Rave, it would be a huge step in the right direction in terms of reducing the squad age, bringing in more British talent and fixing some of our issues. But we know it can’t all be done in one window as has been discussed. I think we would need another CM and possibly a striker as you say in the January window or next summer.

13.) 01 Jun 2019 16:35:39
Meunier and one of Saul or Longstaff depending on if Pogba leaves.

14.) 01 Jun 2019 17:43:57
Thanks for sharing Ken.

15.) 01 Jun 2019 11:39:30
Not sure about the logic of signing both felix and fernandes in terms of how they both fit into one team. Both seem to prefer playing behind a main striker in a no 10/ second striker role.

Fernandes would be a good buy and important to get him in early as we all know the pogba madrid links will drag on through the summer. So good to get a potential replacement before all that if true.

16.) 01 Jun 2019 14:18:49
Hope you are right Ken, be a good signing Bruno Fernandes and hope you are right Ed on Joao Felix.
Wan Bissaka
de Ligt

That’s be a great summer.

17.) 01 Jun 2019 19:29:45
Joao Felix would be a terrific signing.
Front 3 of Rashford, James and Felix would be extreme pace.
With Bruno Fernandes behind them.
Mouth watering on paper.

18.) 01 Jun 2019 22:16:23
Great stuff Ken. Love when someone pulls out a rumour like that.

19.) 01 Jun 2019 22:54:04
Ken, I will track you down if this is bull 😁.

20.) 02 Jun 2019 05:41:44
I don’t see us getting Fernandes and Felix for the reasons you say DSG and that we have stated we are looking for young British talent. So buying Meunier, Fernandes, Felix, De Ligt contradicts that statement UNLESS we buy some good cheap prospects as well (Collins, Longstaff, R. James etc) to blood into the team over the next couple of years.
I am also confident that like a young Ronaldo, Felix could live on the RW for now allowing Fernandes to control/ support the attack from a central position.
In fact Rashford/ Martial/ Greenwood centrally with D James and Felix switching flanks regularly with Fernandes in support could be very dynamic and the sort of attack Ole has talked about creating.

21.) 02 Jun 2019 06:42:16
Rashford felix James?
Hardly mouthwatering.

22.) 02 Jun 2019 09:30:45
Cheers Ken, your post sort of refreshed this page.

23.) 02 Jun 2019 10:30:10
Love this, Ken. I proper rumour from who sounds like a reliable source.

I’d be happy with what most are suggesting however, I honestly think we need 2 CBs, one with significant experience. The club’s intentions to restructure the team around youth is inspiring, but we still need a leader in this team.

24.) 02 Jun 2019 12:58:28

What about Felix and Fernandes in a 4222? Lingard, Gomes as backups?

25.) 02 Jun 2019 13:01:10
Stevie ill come quietly😂.

26.) 02 Jun 2019 13:21:11
Best bit of info I've seen on here in ages Ken.

Nice one 👍.

27.) 02 Jun 2019 13:24:36
Maybe not to you 83.

28.) 02 Jun 2019 15:10:04
if fernandes is coming here, he isn't really doing the best pr job right now. Fanboy comments on pep, drooling over liverpool. Not exactly the smartest play for a guy who might sign for utd.

29.) 02 Jun 2019 15:22:42
I read the same comments, I think it’s typical gernalist spin. What he said was he prefers Liverpool’s style of play. Dynamic, fast paced, exciting. As opposed to City’s possession, slow build up style.
This is not dissimilar to what Ole has spoken about how he wants united to play.
This may be one reason he chooses United over City.

30.) 02 Jun 2019 17:32:39
Thanks Ken for sharing this information.

Has given me a much needed Utd lift!

31.) 03 Jun 2019 10:42:13
Nice one KEN. Let us know if you get anything else.

Fernandes, Felix from Portugal. AWB for RB. Ndombele for DM/ CM along side Pogba with Fernandes in front. AND a CB.

Would be a fantastic summer.



26 Apr 2019 18:06:06
Jose might end up at inter and come in for lukaku🤗.


1.) 27 Apr 2019 11:39:42
I doubt that considering he doesn't like lukaku.

2.) 27 Apr 2019 15:11:54
Crazy he bought him then? 🤔🤔.

3.) 27 Apr 2019 18:08:00
Did he though?

4.) 27 Apr 2019 19:55:18
Cryptic hour on the Man Utd rumours page.



25 Apr 2019 00:24:54
Whatever our opinions on players ole and the club appear to be committed to rash and martial. So how does he get the best out of them. next season.
Should they both be competing for the no9 position so its a case of one or the other?
Could we see them play as a pair?


1.) 25 Apr 2019 01:24:55
Keep Rashford, sell Martial, who is lazy and sulks whenever he or the team faces adversity.

2.) 25 Apr 2019 05:46:50
How do we get the best out of them? Playing them as a pair would be nice to see and hopefully they could develop a partnership.

Being less cowardly on the ball would help as well, we should be able to introduce more sophisticated patterns of play rather than just hoofing it long or knocking it down the channel. Its the easy way out and top players are usually much more brave on the ball.

Also if we can get someone to play on the right or even at least just stand on the right that is some sort of threat as a professional football player then that should draw some focus away from that left hand side and create more space for those two.

3.) 25 Apr 2019 06:14:34
One of the problems last night was zero support from midfield, especially the first half. Every time Rashford or Lingard had the ball they only had each other to pass to making our play very predictable. We need better, hard working players. Roll on summer.

4.) 25 Apr 2019 07:27:24
I don’t think either are good enough to lead the line and both should be competing for the left hand side role.

5.) 25 Apr 2019 07:59:25
The other problem yesterday was that one of them was being selfish. Even the commentators saw it and spoke out when there was a more deadly pass on in the first half but the striker turned towards the right and subsequently killed the move. Should have seen the look in the other ones face, supposedly they are best friends off field. Some need to understand that shooting from a 100 yards out will not get you goals every time, it happens once in a 100 chances.

6.) 25 Apr 2019 08:41:11
Sell Lukaku and bring in Piatek or Jovic. Give Martial another year and see how he performs.

7.) 25 Apr 2019 09:44:00
I personally believe that if we sell Pogba, this will have a big impact on certain players, in particular Martial, Rashford and Lingard.

I get the impression that Pogba is the big personality who people follow and despite his obvious talents, I just don't think he has the right attitude.

If Pogba is sold, I can see Martial, Rashford and Lingard becoming more focused and improving, in particular Martial.

8.) 25 Apr 2019 10:01:16
Personally I like the idea of playing a 4312/ 3412 with split strikers and a floating No.10. We don't have any wingers, while we have several strikers and No.10's.

That way we can have Martial, Rashford, Lukaku and Greenwood as our four striker options.

Lingard, Andreas Pereira and Angel Gomes as No.10's. Plus maybe one other signed in the summer. Bruno Fernandes maybe.

Then sell Pogba and bring in two midfielders, NDombele being one.

9.) 25 Apr 2019 10:17:16
agree shappy. bruno with a midfield of ndombele and say neves would be brilliant.

10.) 25 Apr 2019 11:23:48
Although Martial has frustrated the s**t out of me, I would still like to see him given a run as striker, Rash has had plenty of games there but Martial has barely had a chance as striker. I do believe he is our best finisher.

11.) 25 Apr 2019 11:49:38
Although Martial is a good finisher, he doesn't offer enough off the ball movement.
I would like to see a midfield of Bruno, Saul and Declan Rice.

12.) 25 Apr 2019 12:38:23
I'd go either 352 or 4312 as our wide options are horrific. But 2 upfront could get the best out of martial and maybe even Sanchez.

13.) 25 Apr 2019 14:40:27
What do people see in Martial I don't someone please tell me its frustrating the (swear word) out of me. Why does Martial get the mention that he deserves a run in the side as a number 9 or a pair with someone else, why?

I can list many many reasons why he shouldn't been given a run.
Yes let's give a free run a test maybe to see how it goes and if it doesn't work out we have out answer don't we. All the while whilst that free test doesn't work out we are losing games and points so the little test can be conducted.
All the while when he does actually play he can't be bothered and his effort is ZERO. Yes he deserves a run in the side doesn't he?

14.) 25 Apr 2019 14:53:46
Martial gets away with it because he hasn't been given a run in the strikers position.

As soon as he gets the run and if he doesn't perforn then he will get criticised.

I do have my doubts over his attitude as he looks like one of them players that cries a lot if nothing goes right for him.

15.) 25 Apr 2019 15:41:03
I don't know maybe because he is the best finisher at the club. Yes he doesn't work hard enough. But that is much less of a problem for a striker than a winger.

The biggest problem we have had over the last month is not finishing the chances we have made. I would argue that had Martial had the same chances he would have scored at least 70% of them.

That's not to say Martial is the answer to all our problems. Just that is might not hurt to give our best finisher a chance as a striker during a tough spell where we can't seem to finish our chances.

16.) 25 Apr 2019 15:43:36
Simple answer FZZ. Martial is more talented and a more natural striker with that instinct for goal then the person currently leading the line. For me, Lukaku should lead the line, if not, then Martial. But the problem is that he can't be bothered to play. His head seems elsewhere and it has been since his 9 was given to Zlatan. Never seen such a reaction to a jersey being changed.

17.) 25 Apr 2019 16:40:51
I dunno David Mellors was funny.

18.) 25 Apr 2019 17:40:55
What a load of Tosh UA, no i am not having what you said or agree with. He isn't the best finisher, he's not a best at anything apart from looking like he hates playing football.

19.) 25 Apr 2019 18:30:27
Play Herrera every game this season and the team will click.

20.) 25 Apr 2019 19:15:51
I like Shappy's idea of the 3-4-1-2. I admit that Martial does have the talent and could thrive if he played with Rashford. Would Lukaku want to stay as 3rd choice? Not sure. This setup would allow Greenwood to get more minutes as well.

Lingard would be a natural in the #10 position. It would take advantage of his greatest quality, which is movement off the ball. But I think we need someone more explosive and dangerous on the ball. Someone that can run with the ball and ride some tackles. Bruno Fernandes might fit very well there.

21.) 25 Apr 2019 22:53:10
Martial frustrates me so much.
I don't like watching him play and i would hate to play with him.
But he is a good finisher.
I would like to see him given the chance up front for an extended run as a striker. To see if he can do it. Particularly as nobody else is scoring when there.
2 up front would possibly suit all our strikers
None have been prolific while playing as the sole striker.
But with no defence and little creativity from midfield its tough to play 2 up top.

22.) 25 Apr 2019 23:44:45
He hasn't done anything to deserve a run up front Ken.

Maybe if he actually tried to look bothered i wouldn't be against it but until he starts putting some effort in he doesn't deserve LB in the changing rooms.



31 Mar 2019 09:48:54
Fresh its anyones guess at this stage.
I would imagine there are question marks over the following
Darmian valencia rojo mata herrera jones sanchez bailly ddg and pogba.
Of course all won't go although in reality i would not be over concerned about any leaving except pogba and ddg.
Wages are the issue so in order to buy we need to get some wages off the books naturally.
Selling some of the above is an issue because of their inflated wages so its not as simple as it looks.
Mata and herrera can possibly go on free transfers. Herrera may stay but its a 30m commitment from the club for a squad player approaching 30 doesn't seem like a good call to me mata likewise.
Ddg can't even command a top fee now going into the last year of his contract.
Valencia is being released darmian and rojo hold little value and we will have to pay sanchez off.


1.) 31 Mar 2019 15:11:21
I don't think bailly or jones will leave and i agree don't want to see dsg and pogba leave.

I think there is something in rumours that ole is happy with the options at cb whether people like it or not.

Could see two signings at CM and none at the back.

2.) 31 Mar 2019 21:48:39
If he is happy with the CB options he must still think he is managing Molde.

3.) 31 Mar 2019 22:28:08
Frankly with our current club structure and management we won't be able to compete with Real Madrid and Bayern when it comes to recruiting the best new players. Zidane will have made sure he can decide who they sign and Bayern are very well run and have a big budget. We are going to struggle to hold on to our best two players in DE Gea and Pogba and we have Sanchez to sort out room. Ole has his work cut out.

4.) 01 Apr 2019 10:43:01
With our current wage structure, basically maxed out, we are backed into a corner anyway.

We need to get rid of overpaid players and probably focus on cost efficient signings (wage wise) compared to Kroos or Bale etc.

We simply can’t afford to trade Pogba for Kroos and Bale, as we don’t have the wiggle room to pay the wages needed.

5.) 01 Apr 2019 13:26:56
We could do without Bale and Kroos anyway. Bale would play 25 games a season and command a silly wage. Kroos doesn't work hard enough and I can see him struggling in the Prem. He's excellent on the ball but doesn't fit Ole's desire of being one of the most hard-working teams in the league.

I hope the days of Blockbuster signings are over and we go back to signing younger players with desire to reach the very top.




ken's banter posts with other poster's replies to ken's banter posts


03 Oct 2019 23:24:44
I read today and have not checked it out but it said that of all the teams that have played the last 20 epl games United and spurs would be in the bottom 3.
That's pretty damning.
No win in last 10 away games that's pretty damning.
Only once have scored more than 1 goal in 16 games including az astana hudderfield norwich brighton . rochdale
Thats pretty damning
5 wins in 22 games that's pretty damming.
We are disproving .


1.) 04 Oct 2019 06:07:31
Ken, he's just sorting it all out mate. Needs 2-3 seasons to get it right. That's what this club needs now.

2.) 04 Oct 2019 08:03:19
If we draw with Newcastle and lose to Liverpool, and 1 point is probably the most likely outcome of those 2 games, we could find ourselves 16th in the league and 3 points from relegation positions.

At that point surely Ole is out. I just hope we have someone in our sights to take over.

A new, quality, experienced manager with say 150m to spend at the Christmas break, which should buy two overpriced medium to high quality players, let's say a centre mid and and right winger, could change absolutely everything.

I don't mind the losing, I can tolerate that for a while, but god dam it leave me feeling entertained!

3.) 04 Oct 2019 08:52:32
Free falling to relegation. Get rid of the floppsy.

4.) 04 Oct 2019 09:44:18
You really think Woodward will spend money in January? Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the last player we signed in January Juan Mata? Who was a panic buy and has been a mixed success anyway.

5.) 04 Oct 2019 16:37:40



22 Sep 2019 21:16:43
Lots of unhappy folk on here tonight.
Lets keep things in perspective.
Supporting united is a hobby, pastime, way of life. But if its affecting your health or life in a negative way then you need to look at your priorities.
Its a game lads.
Don't get to upset when you lose a few.
Its a game😂
Nobody can be surprised by the way things are gong.
Its not easy to find too much hope for the short term future of the team. There is little or no evidence of any progression.


1.) 22 Sep 2019 21:20:54
Indeed Ken let's stay positive.

2.) 22 Sep 2019 21:30:19
Good post ken, very true about perspective.

3.) 22 Sep 2019 22:25:22
Good old Ken.
Builds up my positivity only to slap me in the face with reality at the end. Class. 🤣.

4.) 23 Sep 2019 02:34:00
I said I am getting health issues but frankly can never stop watching us no matter how horrible we are.

5.) 23 Sep 2019 04:44:12
Well that's mental srestha. stop watching mate.



14 Sep 2019 17:32:00
We were second best for long periods in that game but i thought we out fought Leicester and deserved our win.
The back 5 and mctom did their jobs well and they deserved their Clean sheet.
Matic and mata had little impact on the game.
Periera put himself about and worked hard.
Even though they didn't control the game they all worked really hard and didn't go missing and leaving gaps for Leicester to exploit.

James and rash tried to make things happen but to little effect.
We never controlled the game at all but got through it.
Lots of calls for greenwood and gomes but ole found a winning combination today so he got it right. Credit where it's due.


1.) 14 Sep 2019 17:40:43
We looked better once matic an Mata, the 2 slowest players went off. I don't see what Pereira offers. Not good enough and wouldn't get in the starting 11 for at least 15 of the other teams in the league.

2.) 14 Sep 2019 18:06:56
We qere terrible today and if it wasnt for the penalty or David having a good game we wouldve lost.

3.) 14 Sep 2019 18:22:14
If it wasn’t for us scoring more goals that the opposition we wound have lost that game. Been due a game where we fought and got the win, probably deserved a few more points this season and not for missed penalties would have got them. Great result against an unbeaten Leicester.

4.) 14 Sep 2019 18:48:12
Back 5 were solid.
Mctominay was full of energy and won numerous battles in midfield.

But we lack imagination going forward.
I still worry where the goals are going to come from.

5.) 14 Sep 2019 19:26:42
Love it GDS 😁 Good job we scored first as well.

6.) 14 Sep 2019 19:49:28

7.) 14 Sep 2019 20:08:47
Before the game there was talk of Leicester having better players, we’re all doomed, it’s a must win game. We won yet people still aren’t happy. We played well against Wolves and only drew, same against Southampton. Today we played well for half an hour and won. Swings and roundabouts. We usually lose or at best draw after an international break yet despite the injuries we won.

It’s a mad season so far, City have lost to Norwich, Spurs, Chelsea and Arsenal look unconvincing, Liverpool are currently the only standout team. Perhaps we should stop analysing every moment of every game and see where we are after 10 games. Just an idea.

8.) 14 Sep 2019 20:49:03
So far we are 2 points worse off than city and wouldn’t say our fixtures have been any easier. Not as bad a start as some would have you believe.

{Ed002's Note - It is way too early for comparisons.}

9.) 14 Sep 2019 21:02:51
Nice to win these kind of one's ken. Grind it out. Was a great 3 points.

10.) 14 Sep 2019 21:01:47
Let GDS have this one Ed002. We are only 2 points off City, quite clearly we are just as good.

{Ed002's Note - Simple math means another kick in the gonads for MU until January when Skrinier moves to MC and MU get stomped again. Or something like that. bUt I appreciate the thought.}

11.) 15 Sep 2019 10:59:33
Angel, you know that’s not what he meant. We have the same points as Spurs and Chelsea. The point is that other than Liverpool, nobody has looked convincing yet.

12.) 15 Sep 2019 13:58:49
You reckon tony? 😂.

13.) 15 Sep 2019 17:12:31

Just hilarious the posts on here saying we are doomed and the season is going to be a struggle when we are 2 points off the team most people thought would win the league. We aren’t as good as city and won’t finish close to them, but as it stands we are so maybe just maybe we aren’t as screwed as people think. Fun season ahead I think.



13 Sep 2019 17:21:24
Did anybody see the press conference today.
I thought ole's hair was a bit messy he obviously doesn't realise the size of the club he represents turning up without even brushing his hair its a disgrace i tell you.
Secondly he has an awful habit of folding his arms it gives off negative vibes. Its a disgrace i tell you.
Thirdly he has a slight Norwegian tilt on his English accent. This gives off a bad signal as the players won't understand him properly. Its a disgrace i tell you.
Fourth, ole sometimes blinks to much when he talks again this sends out a bad signal to his players snd galvanises the opposition. Its a disgrace i tell you.
Fifth. I noticed ole has quite small feet which is totally inappropriate for a football manager for a club this size. Its a disgrace i tell you.
Sixth oles eyebrows appear to be close together. So he shouldn't be trusted. Its a disgrace i tell you.
Seventh. zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Just watching Rashford on Football Focus. He still seems like the same pleasant, level-headed young man that he was when he first burst on the scene. Don't get this attitude thing that he's supposed to have developed.

Interestingly, when asked what the main difference between Ole and the previous incumbents was, he replied simply, 'a plan'. Not just for this year, but for the next, and the one after that.

I thought from reading on here, that he had no plan at all. Different hearing it from someone actually involved in the set-up, rather than reading nonsense in the rags, or a gut-instinct from the armchair.

{Ed002's Note - He will be referring to a plan for himself.}

Declan rice is no better than mctom and is really a cb. Very limited player on the ball and is sloppy in possession in bad areas, admittedly he is only learning how to play in midfield and is making big strides but i feel He will be playing cb in 4 years time because that's what he is imo. He will be a very good one too. If pep gets him he could well turn him into a midfielder or ball playing cb.
I like Madison a lot. Very direct great in right spaces and will excel at his next club.
Van der beek is another very good player but probably madrid bound.
Olmo is predominantly a winger left or right not a ten a think a bit lightweight for the epl just yet.
Dembele is a good goal scorer i think he is better with his back to goal than martial or rashford and a good finisher.
Dier again limited on the ball but is an upgrade on matic. He actually plays deeper than matic which offensively allows the 2 cbs to split a bit wider and allows the fbs push on. What sort of price? Is he mire dependable than fred? I think so. He could well be a decent foil for mctom too.
Dembele and dier may both be available. Both would improve our squad. Neither are world class but both would walk into our tem at the moment imo.
A couple of players not spectacular but solid steady eddie's.
They won't break the bank. i'd be delighted to be honest. Our other 3 signings along with mctom look like our best players this season. So there's no reason to think that another 2 wouldn't be a significant upgrade on whoever they replace in the team.
We need 5 or 6 more steady eddie's in the team and squad. Players who produce solid consistent injury free football. Then the moments produced by the likes of rash martial pogba can be capitalised on.

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.

Nothing natural about martial in the striker role. Nothing at all imo.

Ed025. Hope your keeping well mate.
Look, its hard to disagree with you ed but in the 70s and 80s we we crap and they were great and they never battered us and we win more than our fair share.
Its a derby i think the work rate will be up and if we get a lead we could make it hard for them. It wouldn't shack me if we scrape a win or draw but we would need our best performance of the season and a some luck.
It would shock me if we are not back to the walls for long periods.
They will be pushing for the win which plays to our strengths to a degree but i agree its unlikely looking at it logically.
But us fans don't always use logic😁
What do you make of your lot ed?
Its a bit glum too. Need a goal scorer too. i'm not so sure silva ole and poch can afford to lose their next 2 games.

No matter how good Liverpool are they will find it tough at ot same as we did at anfield when we were miles better than them. I've seen united lose to crap Liverpool teams. It happens in derby games if we can avoid conceding early it will be close.


{Ed025's Note - i cant see it being close ken, i dont see any position where united are stronger or any strategy that can control them unfortunately, if you sit back they will mullah you and if you try to take them on they will pick you off with ease, i wish i could offer some words of hope mate i really do...but alas i cant..
