Hi ed02,please tell me igalo transfer is not going to happen. can't believe we have become a joke.

rovercocastic

{Ed002's Note - Any option to buy would make it laughable.}


1.) 31 Jan 2020 21:52:51
Why?

A natural goal scorer for 6 months at minimal costs whilst we only have two centre forwards on the books, one of whom is 18 years old.

Why on earth are you complaining?


2.) 31 Jan 2020 21:57:26
If it goes through it'll be for 6 months. Think of it as a free hit. What would be laughable is to not have any backup to Martial and Greenwood for the next 4 months.


3.) 31 Jan 2020 21:58:55
If the terms work for us then I'd prefer to have an extra striker than not to have enough. He is a short term option with hopefully relatively little outlay.
I have a feeling he may surprise a couple of people particularly if Bruno is going to be feeding him, big strong boy, game changer in last 20 mins maybe, 16 goals in 35 Nigeria apps. Jesper blomqvist.


4.) 31 Jan 2020 22:12:40
If it's just a loan ed?


5.) 31 Jan 2020 22:37:35
6 month loan with an option to buy Angel
It looks like a case of just get an experienced man in for cover if he comes in and scores a few goals or leads the line well then great as someone said above its a free hit.
I don't think martial is a cf so he could well get some game time it will be interesting to see how hee does.
His record in the epl is a goal every 3 games about the same as martial.


6.) 31 Jan 2020 23:23:26
Idhalos not the name we all wanted but to me it's a win win we got him on loan for 6 month he's a man utd fan so to me if he thinks he's got a chance of getting a contract he's gonae give his all ig anything hfully it will martial a kick up the arse that he needs.


7.) 31 Jan 2020 23:32:05
At least we have accepted we needed additional support up front, he apparently is in good form for country. Don't think option to buy but who knows if he does well.
As a back up for Martial with Greenwood he could be a good addition.
Low risk, just start summer planning now with the Euros I think we need to do our work early.


8.) 31 Jan 2020 23:52:10
Read an article which sums this up perfectly. In a scenario where Haaland for £20m was perfect, and signing Joshua King for twice that, Ighalo on loan is an incredibly sensible middle ground.


9.) 01 Feb 2020 01:46:29
Ed002 said numerous times Utd were not going to pay £20m for Haaland. It was going to be more than those figures.

And the kid made the right decisions for his development.


10.) 01 Feb 2020 05:59:48
Ighalo is the kind of signing which might make or break Ole's managerial career with us. If he is banging in the goals, Ole is justified and might get another year. If he turns into another Bebe then Ole will be gone in the summer.


11.) 01 Feb 2020 09:24:29
Hes gone anyway after letting Lukaku go and not buying then . Messed the whole season up 😂😂.


12.) 01 Feb 2020 12:48:41
I'm not sure it was Ole who didn't want a striker in the summer BFRO.


13.) 01 Feb 2020 22:24:53
He's the same manager now making panic signings. He messed up big time . The guy has no idea . Do you think Jose would of made the same mistake. no he wouldnt. 😱😱.


14.) 02 Feb 2020 09:53:52
Easy to say that BFRO, but this isn't a computer game, the manager only has a little involvement in transfers. He may suggest names and say yes or no to others, but he doesn't actually handle the transfer.

Our failure to bring in replacements for players leaving is on Ed Woodward, not Ole.

Oh and fwiw, failing to replace Herrera was a much bigger mistake than Lukaku.


15.) 02 Feb 2020 18:43:42
Funny hey. Almost everyone were happy to see Lukaku go just to justify Ighalo coming. Well karma, karma.

Hello ed02 and ed01. Will fellani be sold? And i will also love to hear your views about him.

rovercocastic

{Ed002's Note - Yes he will move to Turkey with Galatasaray.}


1.) 31 Jul 2017 13:11:38
Are your sure ed that seems pretty definate by you. Cheers.


2.) 31 Jul 2017 13:10:50
That must mean Mourinho is going with him.


3.) 31 Jul 2017 15:28:10
Are we looking at another CM Ed002? Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - It is possible.}


4.) 31 Jul 2017 15:29:11
Other than Matic. Sorry sent too early.


5.) 31 Jul 2017 15:31:18
Ed has given a pretty definitive answer and it's being questioned, it begs the question, what's the point on eds part?


6.) 31 Jul 2017 16:16:58
Thank you ed02, very grateful.


7.) 31 Jul 2017 18:05:28
Lukes love child. The second part of my question was sent immediately after the first. Was not meant as a follow-up to the Eds reply but as part of first question hence my 'sent too early comment' as was still typing.
Ed002's answer was more than enough.


8.) 31 Jul 2017 22:43:19
Does sound like Ed2 bring definite here, particularly given what JM said about MF leaving but I'd never question Ed002's info - always bang on the money.

Maybe Jose was pushing G for more money!


9.) 31 Jul 2017 23:27:58
Or maybe Ed002 is having a laugh seen as the manager basically said "over his dead body"?

I watch Dortmund regularly, i can tell you that sancho is no where worth the 120m been talked about. I sick of this club wasting money that could have been better spent on 2-3 good players, this is just madness!

rovercocastic

1.) 04 Aug 2020 11:34:06
Who is worth the money then?


2.) 04 Aug 2020 12:02:56
I'm available on a free!


3.) 04 Aug 2020 12:33:34
Let's be honest no player is worth even half of what gets paid. Agents fees, sponsorship deals, brand power and huge sums of money coming in though TV deals mean that companies are paying more for a member of staff than competitors have as a budget for a whole year.

It's obscene. But it is what it is.

Jadon Sancho is young and English which means a premium is placed on his head, then you add the "United" tax that we always seem to have to pay on top of any transfer fee.

Often fees are higher or just as high for players with "potential" than those at their peak.

As for Jandon Sancho, I saw a stat the other day that stated that since the start 18/ 19 season until now only Messi has more league goal involvements (goals and assists) . If true then that is one hell of an achievement.

I also watch a fair amount of Dortmund, and Sancho is a player who like many 20 year olds drifts in and out of games at times. Yet he still has that knack of scoring or creating a glorious chance at any moment. It's that knack that separates the good from the world class players. Players who even when they aren't playing well still find a way to influence the game.

Sancho has that ability and it is showing through at a young age. He still has plenty to work on and he needs to learn how to impose himself on games more, while rounding some rough edges. He has huge potential and that is what we would be paying for. A very good player now, who in 2-3 years time could be genuinely world class.

While I agree that if it was down to me I would probably look elsewhere as the extremes of his "value" mean that we could get 2 or even 3 players with huge potential for the same cost.

But the club have decided it is Sancho they want, and he wouldn't be a bad signing. Factoring in his age, his current ability, his potential ability and his marketability (which for our club will be a huge draw) then it won't be a bad signing, even at the prices quoted. Hopefully the club can bring the cost down, maybe tie some of the payments up against his performances so that if it doesn't work out for whatever reason that some of the total cost is brought down.


4.) 04 Aug 2020 12:58:50
I have posted previously that Sancho's fee must be considered as a long term investment.
He can fill the RW role for more than a decade possibly.


5.) 04 Aug 2020 13:04:35
20 goals and 20 assists last season. He’s a very highly rated player. Paying for what he can be, as well as what he’s doing now.


6.) 04 Aug 2020 13:48:06
Sancho won't produce the same numbers in the Premier League as he had in the Bundesliga. Some of the defences in Germany are shocking. If he gets double figures for goals and assists across all competitions next season then he will have done pretty well.

It sounds daft but I'm most looking forward to the fact he is a very entertaining footballer to watch. We've been dire to watch for the majority of the last decade so having someone who will run at players and throw in a trick or two has been missing.

In his first season I can see him being brilliant at times but frustrating at others. I'd shove plenty of money on Graeme Souness complaining within Sancho's first 10 games that he doesn't do enough in terms of end product because he's too busy nutmegging people and doing tricks in areas which aren't doing any harm.


7.) 04 Aug 2020 14:02:30
To be fair Rjmanutd you could have said the same for Fernandes and the Portuguese league but he managed 8 goals and 7 assists in 14 games for us and the same in 17 games for them.


8.) 04 Aug 2020 14:05:54
How does he compare to Ronaldo at the same age?

{Ed002's Note - Slightly shorter.}


9.) 04 Aug 2020 14:35:53
Pogthedog, completely agree, Fernandes has been a revelation. My comment isn't to say Sancho will never reach the numbers he has in the Bundesliga, more to say he won't produce that next season in the PL.


10.) 04 Aug 2020 15:09:17
We don’t know what he will produce until he’s here. If we sign him let’s see. Our forward line is young and full of talent. Really exciting signing this for me.


11.) 04 Aug 2020 15:43:59
If United have a valuation for Sancho we need to stick with it. Dortmund are just traders in young players and go for the highest price. In this day and age the amount of money requested is obscene.
We could Traore or Zaha for half the price and they have more experience.


12.) 04 Aug 2020 16:18:46
Common sense would suggest we would see some drop off in his output between the Bundesliga and the EPL. Much tougher league, with much better defenders.

That said who knows, as pointed out above that Bruno hasn't dropped off between the Liga Nos and the EPL. Although that is on a small sample size and he has scored a lot of penalty goals for us.

If Sancho scores 12 goals and 12 assists across all competitions then that would be a success in his first year, anything more would be amazing.

That said a lot of Sancho's goals have come from positions other than the RW.

When playing on the RW he has 5 goals and 7 assists.
7 goals and 3 assists when playing in the No.10 central area.
With 6 goals and 6 assists coming from the left hand side of the pitch.

Which is something to remember, he has been moved around the pitch to where he can be most dangerous in that particular game rather than just playing in one position all the time. However, that flexibility and that he can score and assist equally from all areas does bode well, and he could easily cover for Rashford or Bruno if needed with Greenwood coming in on the right for example.


13.) 04 Aug 2020 15:51:19
Ed002 - haha 😂😂😂😂😂😂.


14.) 04 Aug 2020 16:37:55
That’s the point of the signing. Him, Rashford and Martial can interchange across the front 3 making it a nightmare to pick up and mark them. Really excited by this signing.


15.) 04 Aug 2020 17:08:23
You are overselling the defense of English clubs. It's not that Germans have such a weak defense, its more that they play different style of football, more atacking based. Also, I don't see Rashford being much stronger physically than Sancho, and he doesn't seem to have much problem with it.

Sancho had 17 goals and 17 assists in Bundesliga, in 32 matches. And of course he didn't play every minute of it. Its not easy to get those numbers in any league.

Sure it doesn't mean he will produce the same number, but getting double digits will do just fine if you ask me.


16.) 04 Aug 2020 18:11:29
Trololo, while I agree the Bundesliga has a different style to the EPL. I would argue that much of what I consider poor defending in Germany isn't due to playing style but due to poor basic defensive errors.

I'd argue that every team in the Bundesliga below 8th would be in a relegation dog fight in the EPL if they defended in our league the same way they defend in theirs.

Far far too many silly errors, just not getting the basics right. It's one of the reasons I'd be very cautious over signing a defender from the Bundesliga.

Bayern have some good defenders, as do Leipzig, but Gladbach's and Dortmund's defenders are average at best, and they are both challenging for the top four.

Can you name the last great defender to move from the Bundesliga to the EPL or La Liga and smash it?

{Ed047's Note - or even the last great right winger?


17.) 04 Aug 2020 19:29:19
I do agree Shappy that the defense there is weaker, what I'm saying is that English defenders aren't that great as you deem them to be.

There is no guarantee of that. The season Eintracht finished 7th in their league, was the season where Chelsea struggled to beat them. It went to penalties. Chelsea had easier time beating Arsenal in final, than beating Eintracht. Sure, that's just an example, I wouldn't base my opinion just on one match, but no one can guarantee how a team would do in another league.

They are challenging because of the style of the league, they go for a goal more, every team there does. Their league can't compare to EPL and La Liga, mostly because of Bayern, but there are some pretty good players there. Also, Bayern tends to pick up most of the quality players from Germany, and most of the players seemingly want to stay in Germany and join Bayern, rather than joining EPL.

Erm, Kompany? Mertesacker? Soyuncu the latest (maybe not top player yet, but quite good) .

Some atacking players as well. Maybe not too much RWs, but some serious LWs and AMs came from Bundes.

You could make a case like that for almost any position / player / league.


18.) 04 Aug 2020 19:43:30
Ed47 as we both found out Miki was abysmal 😂.

{Ed047's Note - my point exactly Caolan 🤣


19.) 04 Aug 2020 20:27:33
Trololo, I'd say Kompany was the last great defender to come out of the Bundesliga. He has retired now, which tells you how rarely a great defender finds themselves playing in Germany.

It's not about nationality, as Germany generally defend well as a national team. It's about coaching and focus.

There just doesn't seem to be the same focus and quality of defender playing in the Bundesliga. Although to be fair France are the only country who seem to be churning out great central defenders currently. It's frankly ridiculous as they are almost certain to leave behind at least two CB's who would be first choice for any other nation at an international tournament.


20.) 04 Aug 2020 20:36:37
I’d slowly forgot about him until you mentioned wide players 😂.

{Ed047's Note - me too, totally forgot we had him on loan elsewhere!🤦‍♂️🤣


21.) 04 Aug 2020 21:22:34
He still on the books Ed or has a permanent deal been done? He was great for us in spells but that was about it. Incredibly infuriating player.

{Ed047's Note - yep, still on the books, hopefully he’ll move on, such a shame as for Dortmund he was fantastic.


22.) 05 Aug 2020 10:32:24
He was fantastic at Dortmund and had some cracking spells here. Shame really, but don’t think he had the balls or desire to get his head down and work when things weren’t going his way.

{Ed047's Note - it never ceases to amaze me when they get these opportunities and then almost can’t be bothered.

I guess money often takes away the desire.


 

 

19 Jun 2020 16:08:28
Hi ed001 rashford vs martial, what's your take?

rovercocastic

{Ed001's Note - different types of players who work really well together. It would really depend on what I was looking for in a player. A wide player, Rashford. A centre-forward it would be Martial. To play both positions and overall I would take Rashford. In large part because he is a good guy who is the kind of person you want to represent your club off as well as on the pitch.}


1.) 19 Jun 2020 18:03:42
Rashford really is an impressive young man. Martial there have been questions over his attitude but under ole he looks a lot happier, I see no reason why he can’t step up another level if he applies himself well.


 

 

13 May 2020 10:04:49
Hi ed001,hope you are doing great. what's your opinion on ander herrera? A big fan of him.

rovercocastic

{Ed001's Note - I really like him, always have done. I thought he was an excellent signing and a better player than many give him credit for. His graft often covered up how technically strong he was, with a very good touch, but it often gets overlooked that he could play. It was a big loss for United when he left.}


1.) 13 May 2020 11:14:17
I disagree on Herrera, I thought he was good enough for the team we had at the time and would possibly still get in now but he would never have been a player to take us to the next level which is where we want to be. I am just not sure what he was, he was good at a lot of things but he wasn't a defensive midfielder and doesn't create enough to be an attacking midfielder, I wasn't bothered in the slightest when he left and had the same opinion of him throughout his time with us (to the dismay of many on here a few years back when I aired that opinion) .

Seems like a great guy and always gave 100% I just think he lacked that special something that could take us to the next level.

{Ed001's Note - that is not how it works. You need grafters in every team, players like Nicky Butt, Sammy Lee etc played in great teams without being great players but were still key players at times to the success. Not every player has to be either defensive or offensive to be any good. What a bizarre statement by you. You can be an all round player, especially in midfield where you are normally called upon to be involved at both ends of the pitch. A player who can be good at both ends can be far better for the balance of the team than a defensive midfielder or an attacking midfielder, especially in the modern 3-man midfields that usually have one to complement the DM and AM.}


2.) 13 May 2020 11:56:58
Totally agree Ed and I miss Herera too!


3.) 13 May 2020 12:13:28
Good enough but nothing special. It is no wonder he almost never makes the Spain team and has been warming the bench at PSG with less than 10 appearances before the season halted. I wouldn't be surprised if they look to move him on.


4.) 13 May 2020 12:55:45
A good box to box mf and we certainly miss him.


5.) 13 May 2020 14:21:17
Far better player than pogba, at least he tried and gave it his all. I was disappointed to see him leave. He was a great tenacious player.


6.) 13 May 2020 16:35:41
I think everyone has forgotten the europa game they destroyed us in under Sir alex. Beisla’s system amazing game.


7.) 13 May 2020 16:51:07
He will probably go down as one of those underrated players. Its a weird football landscape currently where some footballers such as defenders are expected to be multi functional and have the ability to play in midfield. While Midfielders are now expected to have only one key role in midfield. You are either a tackler, a passer, a dribbler or a scorer. But never more than one of these.

While at the same time Pogba is slammed for not doing all of the above.

You have to be a defensive midfielder, making tackles and interceptions.

A playmaker hitting 60 yard passes to feet.

A box to box midfielder breaking the press by dribbling out from midfield.

Or an Attacking midfielder scoring goals and gaining assists.

The thing with Ander Herrera is he can do all these jobs, while having great technique, work ethic and a nasty side. But he doesn't excel at any one of them more than the others.

He is the type of midfielder who acts as the glue that holds a midfield together, but isn't considered as important as the "key" components.

Liverpool are the best team in the land currently by a country mile. Yet arguably only Fabinho could be called a midfield specialist. Sitting deeper making tackles and playing the ball forward with purpose. Henderson, Milner, Wijnaldum and Keita are all multi functional midfielders. Guys who put tackles in when tackles need to be made, guys who drive forward with the ball when space opens up in front of them, guys who score a few goals or play key passes to the forward line.

Currently we have McTominay and Fred doing a similar role. I would argue that Herrera is currently better than both of them in that role.

The only downside to Herrera is in the last couple of seasons he has started to pick up niggling injuries, these have followed him to Paris and have limited his chances at PSG this season.

Oddly enough the last "World class" all round midfielder we had was Roy Keane. A player every United fan would give their left leg to have a peak Roy Keane back in the side. Ander Hererra has never been at Keanes level, but few all round midfielders reach the world class level. Most get pigeon holed long before they get a chance to round off their skill set.

Losing Herrera weakened us, we will bounce back of course, but he is a player we needed to replace last summer and didn't. If he was still here then he would have filled a massive hole in our midfield when Matic, Pogba and McTominay were injured. Which in all likelihood would mean we would be 4 or 5 points better off and sitting in 4th place right now rather than 5th.


8.) 13 May 2020 19:07:21
Shappy, i would also say that he was a player for the big games. Against Liverpool at Anfield he prodused one of the best perfomances i have ever seen from a United player with 16 tackles, 11 interceptions and 5 take ons completed, against Chelsea he made Hazard desapear and he was man of the match etc. He played extremely well as defensive midfield the year we won Europa League, he played well in different positions and different roles . And as for the stats (with Pogba mostly), taking into account that Herrera is more defensively and they don't have exactly the same role and taking account the numper of shots and penalties i don't thing the gap is so huge. I don't say is better than Pogba offensivly but the boy clearly could play.


9.) 14 May 2020 01:00:19
Herrera played with heart and intelligence. We have definitely missed him. To me he was like Henderson is to Liverpool. Or Deschamps was to France. Cantona called them water carriers but they helped their team to win.


10.) 14 May 2020 00:12:19
Ed001,

I didn’t expect you to agree as you rate him, having watched him every week I just didn’t have the same opinion as you on him. Don’t think anything about what I said was ‘bizarre’, I am fully aware players don’t have to be great at attacking or defending to be an important cog in a team, he was an important cog in the team but not somebody irreplaceable. Like I said, worked hard with what talent he had and had some good games for us but too many average ones imo to be a player to take us to the next level.


11.) 14 May 2020 17:29:27
Big fan of Ander. Had a nasty streak in him too.


12.) 15 May 2020 15:23:08
I don't get this love in for Anders, he was too rash in the tackle often picking up unnecessary cards, he fell over most of the time looking for free kicks, he ran around a lot not really doing much but looked busy but he was a lovely guy though and so down too earth :)


13.) 15 May 2020 17:53:13
Rash in the tackle, picking up unnecessary cards? Are you talking about Ander or Scholes?

Ander was a clever player, he made tactical fouls and won challenges that weren't there to be won.

He sewed everything together, he made others around him look better. Every team needs 2 or 3 players like Ander. Sadly they are never fully appreciated.


14.) 15 May 2020 21:56:21
Shappy,

He’s not even 1/ 10th of the player Scholes was though, you can ignore the negatives if the positives outweigh them as much as they did with Scholes.


15.) 15 May 2020 22:13:38
I think he would have done better with a different set of coaches. Always gave his all but was not best suited to play under lvg or joses style of play.
Hardly gets a kick at psg. He left for big money at his age a couple of years earning a fortune sitting on the bench might suit him before he goes home to Spain. Ole didn't really fight to keep him and rarely played him he had to move on
Nice lad seemed intelligent and he enjoyed playing here.


 

 

29 Apr 2020 09:23:09
Hi ed001,what is your view on pogba? Is he in the top 20 midfielders?

rovercocastic

{Ed001's Note - in terms of ability he is. In terms of applying it on the pitch, not even close. He just simply does not do enough. He is not as bad as many suggest, but he is nowhere near as good as he should be.}


1.) 29 Apr 2020 10:40:39
Ed001, at 89m plus whatever was paid in agents fees and his wages do you feel Pogba has been value for money?

{Ed001's Note - not in the slightest. The least a player at that price should do is give his all. The reason why Pogba gets such bad press and why ex-pros dislike him is because he gives about 50% on a good day, much less on a bad day. He plays within himself in every game. If is frustrating to watch and that is why he gets the stick. It is only one man's fault - his. If he put his heart and soul into playing for his team, he would be a hero. You only have to look at Beckham, even Liverpool fans, City fans etc respected him because you knew that the very least he would give is 100%. Most United fans have no respect for Pogba because they know he is not bothered about the result, just in doing nice little skills to look good. Pogba is the ultimate footballing example of style over substance.}


2.) 29 Apr 2020 10:54:59
Thats always been pogbas problem. If he give 100% every game he would of cist more than 89 mil tho.


3.) 29 Apr 2020 11:37:13
Lots of people have been slating other fans who talk about Jesse Lingard and use the word "potential" he's 27 and not a kid anymore.

Yet the defence for Pogba largely rests on his "potential" as potentially the world's best midfielder. Yet he himself is 27 the same age as Lingard.

What about Ravel Morrison? He was more talented than Pogba while playing in the same youth system, what about Morrison's potential?

Fact is the penny will likely never drop for Pogba and he will end his career as one of those "what could have been" players.


4.) 29 Apr 2020 11:49:58
Oh please shappy here we go again with the over exaggeration on pogba comparing him with herrera, lingard and ravel morrison lol. what's next, eric djemba djemba, adel taarabt or ali dia?

The fact he played pretty much every minute of frances world cup winning campaign already means he's had more than a “what could have been” career. The man has achieved what so few have been able to in their careers.

Does he have flaws as a player? Absolutely as mentioned above but he also has wonderful ability which has been showcased.


5.) 29 Apr 2020 11:54:38
Just because a player has the potential to do better doesn't mean he is currently a bad player .

DSG, Phil Neville won more EPL titles than Steven Gerrard. Olivier Giourd played more or less the same number on minutes as Pogba in their world cup winning campaign. Does that make Giroud the best striker in the world?

Pogba is a good player, but he rarely shows just how good he could be.

Other than Mbappe there isn't another player in that French squad with more potential than Pogba. If you ranked how well that squad played in the world cup would you rate Pogba as the best player in that squad based on performance?

I'd say Mbappe, Giroud, Kante, Matiudi, Varane, Hernandez and Pavard all played better than Pogba during that tournament. That's at least 6 players who potentially aren't as good as Pogba who out performed him. Two of which are fellow midfielders.

He keeps being called world class, name me 5 world class performances he has put in for us in FOUR years.

1.) City away 17/ 18 season
2.) Chelsea away fa cup 18/ 19 season
3.) newcastle at home 17/ 18 season
4.) fulham away 18/ 19 season
5.) Europa league final
6.) Fenerbache 16/ 17 season
7.) swansea 17/ 18 season
8.) west ham 17/ 18 season

Honourable mentions in a france shirt to the semi against belgium (immense defensively) and world cup final.

Also honourable mention to zlatan in the 16/ 17 season who (and this is not hyperbole) must have missed at least 5-10 sitters from pogba passes lol.

Shappy who called him world class. Your moving the goal posts there abit pal.

During Ole's initial run of unbeaten record streak, Pogba was running the show.
For 10-12 games, we saw his true potential.
Top scorer, assist maker during the period.

But the problem is, he chooses when to play.
Consistency has been an issue with him.

Shappy, channel your inner Elsa, “let it go, let it go”. You really need to drop it now, it’s getting boring.

Really happy with the players bought, believe we have one of the strongest midfield in England.We are just a cb and a striker away from battling for the epl title.
I see rival fans are getting worried and kidding their selves into believing our signings wouldn't walk into their team.
arsenal fans wanted schneiderlin but after coming to us they feel le coq is better player.
Liverpool fans feel milner is far better than schiwenteiger. lol
i personally think we have a superior team than arsenal and Liverpool and if all things go according to plan then we should challenge this year.
cheers everyone!

At least we all now know what JMB stands for - Just Moronic Behaviour.


2.) 14 Jul 2015 11:44:26
The original post by ed02 simply says what interest and that he's making a pretty penny already.

At what point that warrants JMB's dig is beyond me, petty and pointless!

Things change quickly in football and I won't be holding the eds accountable for comments made 4/5 months ago.

Shappy, what a load of rubbish. Pogba is not even a top player, fans like you are the reason why the club keeps buying poor players like maguire, hope u will win trophies with grealish.

Don't know the hype around pogba, he's not even a top player and people are still thinking he has potential at 27.

I will be pissed if mourinho resigns ibra, we need to move forward and not backwards.

What makes you think we will win the league or make top 4? All trophies are important now that its been a while we won one.
We must fight on all fronts.
