Apparently United scouts have been watching Trabzonspor " wonderkid " Yusuf Yazici. He's the "new Mezut Ozil" by all accounts. I do chuckle at those sorts of comparisons.

21 Aug 2017 20:56:02
The new mesut ozil. does he also go missing in a lot games?

Agree2 0Disagree

21 Aug 2017 21:33:47
He doesn't track back enough either!

21 Aug 2017 14:23:32
Ed, Sky are reporting United are considering a bid for Ryan Sessegnon. Do you see us making a bid for him? Thanks.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed004's Note - I've no idea. It looks like all the top clubs are keeping an eye on him}

21 Aug 2017 16:07:34
Apparently we are willing to buy and loan back like we did with Smalling. Seems a good deal for Fulham if they are willing to do business.

Agree2 0Disagree

21 Aug 2017 16:38:50
He's certainly a player who looks very promising. However, he's nowhere near ready for the top end of the PL so a loan back for a year or two makes far more sense.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Aug 2017 08:47:13
Anyone else heard that Valencia are in for Andreas Pereira on loan?

Believable4 0Unbelievable

21 Aug 2017 09:34:53
Read it this morning - if he's goes to play every week you can't argue with the move but I'd like to see him given a chance this season but he's behind 5-6 others for a spot in the team.

Agree4 0Disagree

21 Aug 2017 11:26:02
I would be disappointed to see him leave, but he is behind Pogba, Matic, Herrera, Carrick and Fellaini in midfield. An it looks like we might play most of the games this season with a No.10 which leaves only two creeper midfield positions available. Of which he is 6th choice.

I would like to keep him and play him in rotation for one of the wide roles. You could have Rashford/ Martial for the left, Mata/ Mkhitaryan for the No.10 and Pereira/ Lingard for the right.

Agree4 0Disagree

21 Aug 2017 15:33:43
If he goes and gets game time in the CM role then we could really benefit next year bringing him back in as replacement for the then likely retiring Carrick. Valencia are a step up from last year for him too.
One concern is that I heard he is in last year of contract. Hope that information is incorrect.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Aug 2017 17:42:47
Valencia have just signed Kondogbia on loan.

I'm not sure how many midfielders they have but if Pereira goes it needs to be for first team football. No good him sat on somebody else's bench.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Aug 2017 17:55:57
I'm surprised someone like Swansea don't take a punt on him on loan. he's obviously not as good as Sigurdsson but he's in the same mould as him.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Aug 2017 22:57:23
Ibrahimovic to sign next week, but Lukaku to remain the main striker.

This would indicate he'll be fit before January.

Believable4 0Unbelievable

21 Aug 2017 06:26:47
Did the ed not say the return of ibra would mean the end of martial?

Agree1 3Disagree

21 Aug 2017 08:14:11
I don't think Martial and Ibra play in the same position. I do think Martial and Rash are strikers, but will be used as wingers, so that leaves Lukaku as our only striker. It make sense to have at least 2 natural strikers.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Aug 2017 12:30:38
I don't see how, Martial will continue to operate from the wide left and Jose has said what a change there has been in Martial.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Aug 2017 19:19:12
Ibra to sign next week. Lukaku will remain first choice.

Does this mean he's back sooner than first thought?

Believable2 0Unbelievable

20 Aug 2017 21:05:14
I hope he is 2nd choice and his ego doesn't demand a starting spot, we look miles more fluid and dangerous on the counter without him.

Agree3 0Disagree

20 Aug 2017 21:17:29
Agreed, not a bad player to have on the bench though. And the other players love him so he is no problem in the dressing room. Not this one anyway. We already have a massive team, imagine chucking him and Fellaini on for set pieces when we need a goal. Along with all the other tall lads in the side.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Aug 2017 22:52:39
Great news. can't have too many winners knocking about the place. i'm sure he has been made aware of the pecking order. The players do appear to love him and what he brings. It also gives us a more like for like replacement if lukaku gets injured so we won't have to alter the way we play.
He brings a lot to the camp and is a good example for the young lads to follow. A great option off the bench he scores goals.

Agree1 1Disagree

20 Aug 2017 23:49:22
I woulsnt want him if it means we will lose Martial.

Agree4 0Disagree

21 Aug 2017 03:49:44
Could he play 10 behind Lukaku? Could push Miki back out wide again. Can't see Ibra sitting on the bench when fit.

Agree1 3Disagree

21 Aug 2017 06:23:02
Look a better team with out him.

Agree2 0Disagree

21 Aug 2017 07:50:50
I think resigning him is okay if its about squad rotation. i would not want to see rash or martial's place compromised in the line up as we lose a lot of our speed and things slow down when ibra is in the line up.

I think if we sign him it will be on our terms.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Aug 2017 08:50:14
Push Mikki back out wide? Is that the Mikki that has four assists in two games playing centrally, won German league player of the year playing number 10 in a non Bayern Munich team and is far less effective as a wide player?

Agree6 0Disagree

21 Aug 2017 09:37:49
Can't argue with that Man from Manc. Miki has looked immense in his actual position. Funny that.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Aug 2017 12:06:27
I agree completely that Miki is best played centrally. I would not change the starting line up right now, other than maybe a wide right player for Mata. Or a fully fit and on form Shaw at left back.

I was just suggesting where Jose might play Ibra of he is back fit. I think he will start more games than not.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Aug 2017 12:18:32
I don't think Zlatan coming back will have any impact on Martial. Martial hasn't played up front under Jose. We're short on numbers on out and out strikers. This is a welcomed addition!

Agree0 3Disagree

20 Aug 2017 13:33:45
Any truth that we are in for draxler?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Draxler was offered to two sides by his agent without the permission of PSG who are not looking to sell him.}

20 Aug 2017 13:44:49
Not United related but if any of the eds are around, do you have any idea if PSG are looking to offload any players to get in line with FFP?
There was news that they were looking to bring Fabinho and Mbappe.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Yes, there are plenty available.}

Steady improvement is all you can ask for in football. We've improved the squad with some quality players. Our attacking players have hit the ground running, 4 different scorers today. Last year we were grinding out 1-0's always looking like we were capable of conceding late. I know it's early days but when we go up against the little piggies who built their house out of brick, we won't huff and puff, we just kick the front door in!

We have options from the bench. We have different combinations in midfield depending on the opposition. Maybe lacking a back up striker and a full back but we have players who could fill in for shirt periods of time.

The old cliché rings true. Take each game as they come. We have pace, power, guile, height attacking set pieces. A mixed bag to cause any team problems. A couple more of those results and the fear factor will well and truly be back!

Believable12 0Unbelievable

20 Aug 2017 09:52:45
Omg I just said a similar thing to this Mumbles. That we need a fullback predominantly right I think. That we need a right forward. Don't forget Martial and Rushford can play central of we get an injury to Lukaku. But I agree two more would be great. Although it'll be hard I think.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Aug 2017 11:55:48
Totally agree, the signs are good. Two different games and the same result, if we can do this against good opposition as well then we will romp the league. Punishing teams is a great thing because it will scare teams when they go a goal down, recent seasons opponents always thought they could win from a goal down or at least draw - now they may fear a pasting if they open up - nice to give opposition something to think about for once as it has been too easy for managers to know how to set-up against us and exactly how we will play.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Aug 2017 13:20:03
I think its the left back sydney, not right. Blind looked like he didn't want the ball yesterday and usually passes backwards.

Agree3 2Disagree

20 Aug 2017 13:41:02
Nonsense. Blind was always an option and played well.

Agree1 2Disagree

20 Aug 2017 13:50:17
Granted his delivery yesterday was not perfect, but defensively he was excellent again and always offers an outlet.

Agree0 1Disagree

20 Aug 2017 14:05:09
I like Blind a lot he always tries has an excellent football brain and can pass well but and it is a big but. he is not fast and most right wingers or attacking fullbacks beat him. He will be targeted and against the better teams he will cost us goals if played against left back.

Agree2 1Disagree

20 Aug 2017 17:03:51
Eric - Not sure how you can say it's 'nonsense' when most fans agree with the point. Blind is a passenger, he offered zero going forward. Every time he got the ball he passed it backwards or inside, never gave an option for the wide player, no overlaps and he was frequently letting the ball bounce in the box or was lucky to escape being flat footed when balls came in. We won despite Blind, not because of Blind.

It's very similar when Rojo plays out there. I find myself simply hoping for an average performance, because the alternative is disaster. Most other teams have full backs that are great assets and support the attackers, Blind can't offer that because he is very slow and by committing forward (where he offers little) he is exposing himself to a counter attack because he couldn't catch treacle.

Sad but true, he is not good enough as a full back and against good teams we would get punished.

Agree2 3Disagree

20 Aug 2017 18:38:55
didn't rashford start off as a right winger? maybe try him there with martial on the left, but martial reminds me of olly comes off bench and does brill.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2017 20:17:11
Ole didn't cost us in excess of 50 million.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2017 21:16:45
Beast mate, I think we'll be alright against the top teams. Jose likes the play a tight game somewhat defensive against better opposition. I think Herrera will come in for those big games. A midfield of him closing down and winning the ball back, Pogba further up marauding with a free pass and Matic being the insurance, I think that's the best midfield 3 in the league.

But my favourite part of the make up of the team is very much akin to the 90's united. We have the players to play with the ball on the deck if you want a game of football. We have physically imposing players if you want a battle. We have height to defend a last minute barrage into the box and we have the players with the guile to open up stubborn defences. And something tells me we aren't done in the transfer market either.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2017 21:21:17
yeah mark let's start trying to fit people in again. No!, let's get specialists in positions we need.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2017 22:53:09
Blind is a utility player - a defensive one. To criticise him for not bombing forward and neglecting his primary duties of defending is simply ridiculous. In case nobody saw, we kept another clean sheet with him at left back. He tackled well, was solid, and never gave any of their players a sniff?

Two games in, we have scored 8 and conceded 0 yet there are those on here never happy - Beast mate you being a Primary culprit. Enjoy the moment - may not happen again all season! Thankfully Jose doesn't take any of our master tactical analaysis or transfer knowledge on board and picks a team for each match he thinks will win us marches. His career record speaks for itself so I'll leave it to him and enjoy watching us play fun football for the first time in years again.

Agree2 2Disagree

20 Aug 2017 23:15:40
Totally agree about Blind. He doesn't offer anything going forward always cuts back and is afraid to overlap because he knows he can't get back quick enough if it breaks down. His crossing is very poor and they are always from deep, hopefully shaw can come back and find some form, wouldn't like to see blind starting against any if our rivals.

Agree2 1Disagree

21 Aug 2017 12:16:18
Blind is not pacy enough to be a specialist left back, but when Shaw returns he'll take that slot, and help Rashford in the process. However, he is still a great utility player to call upon, whether in that position, centre half or defensive midfielder.

Gary Neville wasn't the fastest, but he could read the game and was rarely caught out of position. Blind is a very intelligent player, and from what I've seen of him, he rarely gets into a position where he has to run one on one with a winger.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Aug 2017 17:39:03
Blind rarely let's us down. What he lacks in pace he makes up in positioning and reading of the game. Also tidy on the ball.
A very good back up and utility player for me.
Doesn't deserve th stick.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Aug 2017 13:53:35
Shaw and Young both fit for the U23's on Monday.

Really hope they both come through an hour or so and shaw really kicks on this season.

he would be a massive plus if he can get back to top form.

Also no fourth signing by the sounds of it.

Great news 2 more to the squad 😁.

Agree2 1Disagree

18 Aug 2017 18:34:36
There's rumours both will be sold if decent offers come in and we can buy a replacement in time. Rushing them back before transfer window shuts is quite suspicious. Then again there's also rumours Shaw will sign a new deal. We'll see.

Agree0 4Disagree

18 Aug 2017 21:38:28
Have a feeling everything might have clicked in shaws head. if he gets his head down and works hard he can still be the real deal. He is still a young player and I think mourinho could be the man to make him realise what he needs to do. it worked with miki hopefully it works with shaw.

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Aug 2017 09:44:14
Apparently Shaw is on the verge of signing a new contract. Any Eds shed any light on this?

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Aug 2017 20:36:31
Ed02 do United have any interest in Lemar? You mentioned Arsenal's bid has hit a wall and there have been reports today that United may turn to him as an alternative to Bale / Perisic?

Believable0 1Unbelievable

What's this news about Juventus looking for Fellaini. Anyone heard the same?

Think they just bought matuidi. So that should be that.

Agree2 0Disagree

17 Aug 2017 11:44:20
missed a trick there. Matuidi is a good player, really good IMO.

Agree3 1Disagree

17 Aug 2017 22:46:58
I've said it before. If Matuidi was all that, there's no way in hell PSG would let a French international leave their ranks.

Agree3 1Disagree

18 Aug 2017 22:32:35
Matuidi for a reported £18m, seems a good bit of business.

However we have Matic, so who cares.
