Someone on suggested that we sell Pogba to real Madrid for some money and ask for Martin odegaard in return.

Would you be open to that?
Odegaard is Norwegian and from what I've heard he's been carrying sociedad team.

I'm tired of Pogba
either being injured, posting useless posts saying they'll come back stronger, misplace 100s of passes, or his agent dropping stories of him leaving.

He hasn't worked out for quite a few years now, and maybe he is more suited to a league like Madrid and probably more happy with more money, better city and a paparazzi club.

I would love to take odegaard of Madrid's hands.

Ideally if we sign replacements and let Pogba, Matic, Mata, Jones, Rojo and Sanchez out and get 3-4 quality players with Smalling back in the squad it would help us a lot in terms of getting all the overpaid/ average lot out.

I would still keep Ashley young for 1 more season as he has a better fitness record than all of our fullbacks.
Plus he seems like a good professional who might have 1 last season left in him for 7-8 games in Europa league.
Shaw will stay because he's British.
Laird, Dalot more involved.


{Ed002's Note - No that is not the plan.}

1.) 09 Dec 2019 19:23:42
To be honest I think Odegaard is why Madrid are backing away from Pogba. They have done good young talent at Madrid, a few out on loan. Maybe it'll end in tears because its Madrid but they do have some seriously good prospects.

2.) 09 Dec 2019 19:39:19
but does odegaard get shirt sales?

3.) 09 Dec 2019 19:23:17
Thanks Ed. could you tell us what's planned then? Appreciate as always.

4.) 09 Dec 2019 23:18:34
The plan is for them to offer us cash plus players bbs

The ed did a post not long ago

Off the top off my head it was kroos bale james isco.

Cant remember who else.

5.) 09 Dec 2019 23:30:13
Ed002 as i was reading down the OP
i was wondering)
1 if you would reply
2 how short the reply would be
3 would i laugh
2 outta 3 ain't bad.
On a serious note i think you have said there will be a bid from juve with players plus fee.
Do you think madrid will also bid in jan.
And do you know if united hold an interest in any of the players that may possibly be offered by either club?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you are talking about. If you have a question, plain English works best.}

6.) 10 Dec 2019 09:43:35
I would personally steer clear of player like Odegaard, he has found his level at Sociedad, very similar to Zaha playing for Crystal Palace and doing just fine.

Pogba is a luxury that we cannot afford now, but saying he is all negative is a bit harsh. Without him we still lack any creativity in midfield which is evident when we play teams that sit back and defend, nobody knows if he really a bad influence in the dressing room or its just bad press majority of the time.

As for his injuries, it happens to all the players, what will you call Martial then?

{Ed047's Note - the problem with Pogba is he rarely shows up, maybe like Odegaard his true level is Italy or Spain and the Premier League is just too much for him.

You need a midfielder who turns up every game and given the opportunity I’d swap him out for any of City’s midfielders and most of Liverpool’s.

He really is a waste of a shirt for you guys. What will you honestly miss about him when he’s gone. He hung of better players coat tails in winning in Italy and for France.

7.) 10 Dec 2019 10:11:31
He is decent whenever he plays, inconsistent but he is the best creative midfielder we have. let's see how he does not when we have our fully functioning front 3.
13 goals 9 assists last season for a midfielder is just too good, dare someone says most of them were penalties as for UTD players even taking penalties is a huge task.
Also unless we have a very good replacement lined up i don't think we should get rid of him.

8.) 10 Dec 2019 10:48:20
becks you must see something i dont. i just see a half arsed player who thinks he is better than he is.

9.) 10 Dec 2019 11:37:30
That half arsed guy has been more creative than any other full arsed player tbh. But again if we get a quality replacement i am fine with him leaving. Madison being the first choice.

10.) 10 Dec 2019 14:05:07
Pretty sure half of pogba goals for us have been penalties last season.

11.) 10 Dec 2019 15:43:22
This is what happens when you skip a few posts.

12.) 10 Dec 2019 22:03:51
Red whiskey😂😂 quality.

13.) 12 Dec 2019 18:51:08
Odegaard hasn't been good since FM15.



11 Apr 2017 08:41:04
We've let a lot of decent players leave and replaced with lesser quality players. I think Zaha is a brilliant dribbler, a typical SAF winger, but is his crossing upto the mark?
Does he want to move again to United and play under Jose who doesn't play youth very much.
I think he'll leave for Spurs, Liverpool, City than us.


1.) 11 Apr 2017 10:31:59
MOTD Fever, Rohan? Your first line reads "decent players leave and replaced with lesse quality" and then you add on to say Zaha. Is he really United standard? Here we are, talking of players like Sanchez/ Griezmann/ Belotti etc. Why would you want Zaha anywhere near the team?

2.) 11 Apr 2017 11:19:41
Yh zaha very inconsistent on his day he's unbelievable but nowhere near good enough.

3.) 11 Apr 2017 22:28:08
Zaha? Really? I'm speechless.

{Ed025's Note - i think hes talented eric, i know it never worked out for him at united but feel that was more to do with walloping moyes,s daughter than football ability mate.. :)

4.) 12 Apr 2017 12:24:11
I'm not saying per say we should sign him.

5.) 12 Apr 2017 23:28:27
Ha - good point Ed. There was always that rumour flying around.



17 Mar 2017 16:01:32
Youri Tielemans to play at OT.
Yes. Anderlecht vs United in the Europa league.
Ronnie must be the most pleased of all and finally we all posters get to see what the deal is about that guy.
PS Herrera in his post match said that Pogba wasn't that badly injured.




14 Mar 2017 17:34:06
Looking at the last 16 and the possible 8, when we qualify for the quarter finals in the Europa league.
There aren't any clubs that strike fear and looks as favourites.
The only sides I see as threatening are Celta da Vigo, Lyon and Roma.
Celts because they have been terrific in cup competitions and knock Madrid out in 2 legs.

One of Lyon and Roma will progress and both of them are free scorers.
Nobody apart from that. I fancy us beating Besiktas, Anderlecht etc.
Personally I'd love a tie against Anderlecht and see wtf is Youri Tielemans about if we progress.


1.) 15 Mar 2017 08:10:32
When? I wouldn't back us to beat anybody at the moment. I think "if" was the word you were looking for.

2.) 16 Mar 2017 22:23:16
I want Lyon or Schalke get them out of the way. I do not fear anyone in this competition. You have to beat the best to win!



12 Mar 2017 12:59:37
I'm not sure, but newspapers reporting Lingard had 1 year to run down on his current contract.
Do you guys rate him, does he deserve to be paid and be part of the first team?
I disagree, and would want to sell him to anyone who pays well. He scores at Wembley, and he helps the team, but is nowhere near the quality we need. He misses sitters, and I personally hate his social media stuff. He's just a poor Ji-Sung Park in my book.


1.) 12 Mar 2017 13:15:53
He's a squad player who lacks consistency. Some games he makes an impact; others he drifts along.
I'd offer him s new contract as he can play on both wings and in the number 10 position. Mourinho may yet work his magic with him.

2.) 12 Mar 2017 13:39:24
Spent this season hoping he would have an impact but it hasn't happened. Not sure about him on the wings as he always comes inside and we are left without any width.

I thought his best position was as a 10. But he played there for England once and his performance got ripped to shreds by whoever was the pundit that day. Also, we have loads of players that can play as a 10. Still not sure whether he will ever establish himself as a 1st team regular.

3.) 12 Mar 2017 14:05:39
Jesse Lingard is a Red, born and raised and is living the dream of any fan. One of our own.

A number of fans a quick to criticize him and i believe it is because we didn't spend £30m on him and he isn't a foreign FM wonderkid.

How many people on here where creaming themselves over Depay and then saying he needs more chances. Same for Martial.

He could be inconsistent because he only plays 1 in 4 games. But remember he is only getting a game because Martial, Mhiki, Mata or Rooney haven't been doing it. So you should direct the criticism in their direction.

He is an impact player and squad player. Sometimes he makes and impact sometimes he doesn't. But he has won.

There are players to go before Jesse and he will be needed next season.

He deserves a £70k a week contract with fees and bonus he'd touch 100k. He didn't cost anything and this isn't FIFA.

Also how many would take Welbeck back? I personally would and at the time was happy when we sold him. Live and learn.

4.) 12 Mar 2017 14:35:59
He's rubbish. OK he scored the winner in the League Cup Final but apart from that he's dreadful. Oh yeah there was the winner in the Community Shield but other than that, nothing. Apart from the winning goal in the FA Cup Final. But other than those winning goals that secured us trophies he's just a poor man's Ralph Milne.

5.) 12 Mar 2017 19:47:49

6.) 12 Mar 2017 20:02:13
"I personally hate his social media stuff. "
The way I think which you could get over this is by not following his social media?

I would keep him as squad player 100%.

7.) 12 Mar 2017 20:13:49
Jesse should 100% stay, he gets more game time than Rooney and has probably been more influencial over the course of the season.

He's home grown and red to the core, why the hell would we sell one of our own, especially one who offers so much?

Football is a squad game, and he is a vital member of our squad. Why do you think Arsenal and Spurs are supposedly interested in him?

8.) 12 Mar 2017 20:43:33
No way should be be sold. Good versatile squad player. English, home grown and well worth his place in a 25 mam squad imo.

9.) 12 Mar 2017 21:22:58
AJH 😂😂.

10.) 12 Mar 2017 23:04:20
With Ken on this one, a good squad rotation player, only way I sell him if we get a ridiculous offer that's too go to refuse.

11.) 13 Mar 2017 00:28:56
Not good enough in my opinion. Sell him!

12.) 13 Mar 2017 17:22:30
Aside from score a goal, can anyone remember anything else he has done this season?

13.) 13 Mar 2017 18:27:12
What did th rain mans ever do for us? How about his first time cross on the run Beast? Can you remember anything Pogba has done this season?

14.) 13 Mar 2017 18:32:04
That should be Romans, obvs.

15.) 14 Mar 2017 01:21:05
Good squad player imo. Bred red, but so was welbeck.
The only way i would sell him is if we going to buy big in summer. We still have andreas prerira coming back too. he's bred red but we shouldn't make this too big a factor. Kid got eye for goal. A no10 in my eyes. Not quick enough for the wings. i'm a huge andreas fan, and believe he has great potential. Jus don't know how much game time him and lingard can get if they both stay.

City leading 2-1 at villa park but stones got a red card.
The league title challenge is ON.


1.) 21 Apr 2021 22:11:10
City effectively won the league months ago. They have been the best team by a distance. Hate to admit it but am not an ostrich.

2.) 22 Apr 2021 02:09:35
I always thought it was inevitable that Aguero would miss games, and that city would fall down.

Turns out they became more of a threat without a recognized 9. All the CBs in the league didn't know how to cope with the movement changing of positions.

All credit to city this year. Guardiola found a way to play with more solidity, extra players in the defensive midfield zone and his CB purchases really excelled - especially when his main player was out injured.

City have been streets ahead of everyone. And yet utd are not so far behind. This is why I find the tone of concern so confusing on this site.

BUT! Does any of this even matter anymore? I have never been so ashamed to be a utd supporter. Our club has caused serious damage to itself and honestly, every single club in the rest of the league should by right let us all have it for the next decade or so. If the premier league decided to dock points from the "big" six would anyone here actually fight it? It is what we deserve.

3.) 22 Apr 2021 09:49:42
DB, I agree on an extent but the players and fans don't deserve to be punished. It was either Neville or Carragher who said that this isn't even the clubs, it was down to a couple of individuals at the top.

I wish we could punish them somehow. Docking united or anyone else points isn't going to upset Joel Glazer or John Henry for example.

4.) 22 Apr 2021 09:57:12

We the fans, the team, the manager do bot deserve any punishment, so yes I would fight it. It’s the owners that deserve punishment. If punishment is needed look at ownership punishments.

City have a method, a successful method from a coach who knows exactly what he is doing. I have seen no such method or coordination from us.

5.) 22 Apr 2021 10:04:33

The club deserves a lot of stick for sure but not the playing or coaching staff. Docking points is not the answer I feel. I would rather have the PL fine these big clubs and use that money to improve the standards of the domestic leagues.

6.) 22 Apr 2021 10:37:52
The punishment for the 6 clubs is going to be very difficult. If you take points off the club, it is punishing millions of people for the actions of a few greedy ones at the top. Granted docking points may well mean lack of European football next season for them and therefore less money.

However, would the Premier League or other leagues if they followed suit want that? UEFA would see interest in their competitions fall off a cliff if those teams weren't involved and replaced by others. No disrespect to those sides but West Ham vs Real Betis won't attract the same viewers as United or Liverpool games.

It could also antagonise players, coaches etc to dock them points for something they've had nothing to do with.

Punishment is fully deserved but other than a huge fine that impacts the finances I'm not sure what the solution is? Maybe UEFA withhold prize money for those involved as well?

{Ed077's Note - Transfer bans maybe?}

7.) 22 Apr 2021 10:55:18
European ban.

8.) 22 Apr 2021 15:28:32
Uefa welcomed the clubs back into the fold yesterday.
Im not sure if the epl have any right to impose a penalty as they didn't pull out or had no intention of pulling out of the epl so there serious be a whole lot of legal wrangling that could take a long time to decide.
It will all depend on the wording of any rule they are supposed to have broken.
Moral guilt does not always mean legal guilt as fifa and uefa know only too well.



12 Apr 2021 15:38:14
I think with Herrera and Young no longer at the club, we are genuinely missing someone who can make a meal out of a nothing tackle.
Any transfer targets we are looking for that specialism?


1.) 12 Apr 2021 15:47:56
Bruno has that specialism covered.

2.) 12 Apr 2021 16:19:07
I'm not sure we are missing a player who'll go down easily.

I would agree we are missing a sly player who'll leave a little bit on someone when playing. Someone who can aggravate and wind up the opposition. Herrera was great at doing that. They can be useful in disrupting and getting under the skin of difficult opponents. The way Lamela got Martial sent off in the first game against Spurs created that chance for them to get the result they did.

3.) 12 Apr 2021 17:00:22
Herrera was definitely in a league of his own when it came to general football ****housery.

Someone like Fred should practice or hone his skills at the dark arts of the game.

I mean he must have plenty of time on his hands considering he doesn’t practice controlling the football or passing the football.

4.) 12 Apr 2021 17:54:23
Is this not what I see so many united fans crying about at the weekend when son was up to his tricks?
So sons acting would have been OK if he was on our side?
A cheat is a cheat.

5.) 12 Apr 2021 18:18:56
Herrera was two times the player Fred is so ofcourse we miss him!

6.) 12 Apr 2021 18:27:00
If Utd are looking for a wind up merchant and a striker they could kill two birds with one stone with Diego Costa.

Apparently he is looking for a return to the PL.

7.) 12 Apr 2021 18:42:11

10.) 12 Apr 2021 20:30:52
Yes gds2, was just joking around.

11.) 13 Apr 2021 13:56:45
I get that gds2.
But I've heard united fans whinging and moaning about son yet turn a complete blind eye or even applaud our players when they do similar.
Players on all teams try to cheat feign 9r exaggerate injuries and or fouls against them.
Sometimes players profit like son did on Sunday or like Bruno has done on occasions. No point moaning about it or the ref or var because we profit from it ourselves from time to time. You win some you lose some. p.



31 Jan 2021 08:22:38
When I see us play I see a team who relies on luck and good fortune to win games.
We are afraid that if we try to win a game we might lose 1-0. But what if we win?
There is something known as throwing the kitchen sink which we never ever do.
We just wait for man City or livepool to hit bad form or lose a couple of players which is the sheer negative approach we've filled ourselves.
If you win against Sheffield United, a draw vs Arsenal is not a bad result.
But a shock loss at home, should make you fired up to win the next game no matter what the opposition.
Apart from liverpool and man City, I think our team is good enough to go toe to toe with any PL team and yet we will play negatively.
If I was Juan Mata, i'd leave the club now.
You've got to try and change something and have a plan b.
Even if it means we put Maguire as CF for the last stages against Sheffield, Barcelona used the same tactic with Pique quite a few times in the champions league.
The end result should be winning a game, and if it means you've got to get a bruno, rashy, Pogba or martial off you got to do it.
None of them are United legends to gain such a they can't be subbed no matter what status.
I would be angry if you sub Cristiano or Rooney if we need a goal, but none of these lot.
Apart from maybe rash and bruno, the rest all are mercenaries who play for the money and not for the batch.
You've got to try and change a couple of players.
Ole doesn't like the little intelligent players we got in Mata and Donny. He will massively underuse them. I think both of them have the quality to unlock a defense by making a pass or run or have the intelligence to find a pass like that. You've got to give them 20-30 mins to influence a game.
For me, Fred has to start every game we play from now to the end of season, atleast he covers the ground, and he will got loads of rubbish for surrendering possession but a lot of those passes are progressive passes that try to start a quick counter.
I'm surprised Fred has been less invovlded recently as he usually doesn't tire our Duracell bunny.
Then there's a lack of trust of our academy players.
A certain sir Alex had a macheda in the subs after we scored a hat-trick, and his goals won us the title that year. Hugill scored 4 now, why can't he be in the 9 subs when we go want a goal?
What I see is a total lack of imagination from the manager and no consequence for a player when they give out rubbish performances.
We are ever so close to a title and still might be and yet we have had 0 January signings.
I'd be trying to get a CB or a winger to make sure we win a title.
Imagine what a Sancho signing does to this team, the RW stops becoming a problem and Diallo can settle in easily
You give this team to Biesla and we will score so many goals with this team. Ole is shocking.




25 Dec 2020 06:07:23
If you guys don't have a merry Christmas, it's ole's fault.


1.) 25 Dec 2020 13:48:44
Ole started doing a spag bol instead of a roast, and when the family weren't happy, even though he had a turkey and some spuds in the fridge, he refused to change anything until the day was nearly over, and by the time he did put the spuds on everyone was bored and went to bed.



12 Dec 2020 20:57:40
LVG even though he had his problems, put Valdes to train with the reserves after he refused to play some game.

Pogba deserves the same treatment.

Why are we oh so desparate to keep a player? Ole has no backbone, I would sack him and all his staff.

This is nothing but disrespect to the club.

I would rather have a Jose play rubbish football and berate the virus than him being like nothing happened.

I'm sick of ole and Pogba.


1.) 12 Dec 2020 22:11:45
When has Pogba refused to play? Use him whilst he’s here and sell him when we have a buyer.

Amy comparisons to LVG are pointless as he was a disaster.

2.) 12 Dec 2020 23:39:55
still won a trophy eric which is more than ole will do. and oles football is worse.

3.) 13 Dec 2020 06:47:20
LVG was brought in specifically for a 3 year duration prior to the arrival of Allegri.

He came in to set the club up. He style of play was similar to Mourinhos.

LVG appointment wasn't necessarily about the success on the field. He was good at implementing a routine for players who were out injured and making sure they followed a specific programme prior to being ready ready the first team.

Whilst he was football wasn't always pleasing, he like all the managers were hampered by the inadequacies above.

That is the past and we need to focus on the present.

4.) 13 Dec 2020 10:50:01
I like the diamond formation. It works well if you have the right players and Utd certainly have the ‘tip’ in Fernandes. At the base I think Fred does a good job. However in the middle there is no need for the defensive minded McTominay. VDB should be there in my opinion. Leaving the final spot. It should be Pogba, but he doesn’t have the positional discipline.

If we are letting Fred go and basically replacing him with Donny van de Beek we are looking to move forward. Fred and McTom are both squad players. We can have either one of them, and I expect James Garner to step up in a season or 2.
