Even as a Liverpool fan, that would be great news. I like having the best teams fighting in the top off the league, and without De Gea you guys would strugle to get Europe League :D.

I'm reading a lot of people justifying that pathetic performance. SAF played like this in Europe, Sevilla are tough at home, no easy games at this stage of the competition.

The thing is we play like this whenever we come up against a half decent team. Incidentally Moyes took us away in Europe and we played some great stuff, remember the guy that had no European experience?

Sevilla are not up to much, but we were lucky to escape with a draw tonight however you want to dress it up. They will be very dangerous at OT, far more dangerous than we were tonight.

Maybe it was like this sometimes under SAF, but only "SOMETIMES" with Jose it's every time. If we go out to Sevilla, it's because we didn't play to win tonight.

It would be nice to not read BS excuses to justify this rubbish we are subjected to almost every week. Maybe my drum is getting worn out, but the excuse bank is surely out of coin by now. It's just not good enough, we put up with a rubbish Europa League campaign to qualify for this by the skin of our teeth and then put in these types of performances! WTFP?

How many games did Moyes do us proud in Europe? Was it just the Leverkusen game or . No one is saying Jose is producing exceptional football bit my god the hyperbole in here is ridiculous.

Goos post Beast and i reckon we houdlve gone for the kill today as i hope but Jose played it safe which is quite sad considering how poor Sevilla were today.

The players look scared to try something exciting ncase it doesn't work and jose gets angry.

They are all under strict rules by the looks of it.

Made attacking substitutions the team just didn't click going forward.

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Feb 2018 01:32:09
Weren't they like for like subs (Rashford/ Martial for Sanchez/ Mata)? It's not clicking because we attack with 3 men maximum, often just 2 - we have forgotten how to attack as a team as it seems our main focus is on keeping teams out, not making them keep us out.

It's anti-Utd and it isn't hyperbole if it happens virtually every time we play a team that isn't prepared to curl up and die.

Agree10 4Disagree

22 Feb 2018 10:10:12
Couldn’t agree more beast. Went away yet again not to get beaten rather than trying to take the game to them. Nobody here can tell me man for man Sevilla are a better side than us, so why not attack them, why be happy with a bore draw? Anyone who things a nil nil is a good away score line is mistaken. A score draw not too bad, but a nil nil means we now have to win the return leg. Score draw and we’re out. Pathetic performance once again last night, nothing is inproving.

Agree6 3Disagree

22 Feb 2018 11:44:57
Rubbish europa league campaign? You mean the one we won? Oh no we won a trophy but we didn't win it in this specific way that makes me happy. Are you aware of how spoilt you sound. You know this is why fans of other clubs hate us - a huge amount of us have got too used to success. We have to be practical we are still in a rebuilding phase. Yes a lot of money has been spent but the team needed and needs a lot of work. Short termism and harking back to the good old days do not benefit the club.

Agree12 5Disagree

22 Feb 2018 12:56:33
Beast, you called it absolutely right. If De Gea hadn't made unbelievable saves, we will be looking at a 2 or 3 nil scoreline. I hate the passionless, clueless displays. I hate the lack of cohesion in the team. This result is not a good result, one goal for Seville and we have to score two. Even if we score first, we will still be extremely nervous.
I would say it is advantage Seville.
But the most ridiculous post i'd the one from 12daysofhemida. "A huge amount of us have got used to success", "We have to be practical we are still in a rebuilding phase", "Short termism and harking back to the good old days do not benefit the club". These are exactly the type of comments that drive me potty. How could you get too used to success? So shall we have a few years of rubbish performances as we don't want to be to used to success? Utter tripe. Then he mentions we are still rebuilding, we have been rebuilding for five years. A good business doesn't allow its performance to deteriorate, then start rebuilding. All the top clubs are in a constant state of rebuilding. Harking back to the old times? History is what defines you, and history is what you learn from and improve. So when you talk about harking back to the old times, you're basically telling us that we might as well throw away our history.
If you allow standards to drop and mediocrity to set in, then we might as well pack our bags and go home. That's not the philosophy of the club I've supported for over 50 years. we were built on attacking entertaining football with all the right values. Unfortunately, we are losing these values.

22 Feb 2018 15:03:38
Attack x3 you'd make a fine spin doctor.

"So shall we have a few years of rubbish performances as we don't want to be to used to success? "

The few years of rubbish performances HAPPENED under Moyes and LVG. Alongside that were rubbish results. No one was happy, myself included. Now Jose has improved RESULTS a hell of a lot. The performances (last night included) are still often poor. You cannot expect results and performances to be improved when the squad is substandard for a title tilt. Jose is improving us.

"we have been rebuilding for five years. "

Yes, that's just how bad we got.

"A good business doesn't allow its performance to deteriorate, then start rebuilding. "

I agree, but that is exactly what the club allowed to happen. Expecting five years of stagnation to be corrected in two years is unrealistic.

"History is what defines you, and history is what you learn from and improve. "

Once again we agree. history has shown us that sticking by a manager when we fans are calling for his head can be beneficial. Can you imagine what would have happened if the fans had been listened to with Fergie? Also whilst we're talking about history, here's one from Fergie, "Attack wins you games, defence wins you leagues. " I think that is what Mourinho is trying to do.

"So when you talk about harking back to the old times, you're basically telling us that we might as well throw away our history. "

Er. no. Just no. I can't even think of a witty, relevant or scathing retort to that. Sorry.

"If you allow standards to drop and mediocrity to set in, then we might as well pack our bags and go home. That's not the philosophy of the club I've supported for over 50 years. we were built on attacking entertaining football with all the right values. Unfortunately, we are losing these values. "

Let me see if I can do your putting words in other people's mouth shtick. so if we don't play well and win you we should all stop supporting Utd? Utter tripe, piddle and tomfoolery.

We weren't built on attacking entertaining football it's a philosophy we have played more often than not since the days of Busby. A style of play that I love and miss, but since Ferguson left that philosophy has been left behind, through poor appointments, mismanagement and NOW necessity. Our defence isn't up to task and so we need to play more defensively.

Whilst having a nosy around the internet, I found this description of Newton Heath in their first season. "Tough, diligent men who formed a powerful side. " Sounds a lot like a Mourinho side. Maybe we were built on stoic defending first, entertaining football second (like all good teams) .

Great post 12 days.

How many top class players in our squad?
Not even top class on the european stage top class in epl. Jose performing minor miricle to keep them competitive imo.

22 Feb 2018 22:10:35
Oh come on now, it's ridiculous. People are still plugging their same view week in week out.

The fact is, there are some very good and some not so good players in the squad. It's the same for the rest of the top 6 or so teams. It's the manager's job to get the best out of them.

If your idea of getting the best of them is by holding the better players back to set up defensively and grind out results, then we'll agree that Mourinho is doing well. If your idea of an attacking, exciting and progressive style of football is the way forward, then he's not the right man.

Yeh I've just seen this as well Deano. A bit silly if they are true. Jose doesn't half make it difficult for himself with some of his decisions. I can only think that he is not fit and only returned to training on Tuesday. Guess we will have to wait and see.

Ed001 would i be right in thinking united will probably try bring in a rb, lb, cb and possibly 2 cm's this summer given that carrick is retiring and fellaini looks to be off? could be 6/ 7 leaving united but hopefully tuanzebe/ mensah get squad places. thanks ed.

Believable0 1Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - probably not that many but that would be close to Jose's ideals for the summer.}

20 Feb 2018 23:42:55
Thanks ed001 👍.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 08:28:30
I think we need to consider which of the youngsters could possibly step up.

I have high hopes for Tuanzebe so we could in theory not sign a CB and give him a chance. He has never let us down, he has everything to become a top player.

TFM in my opinion should be a midfielder, he could add energy, work rate, strength and defensive solidity to our midfield next season in games where we could do with more defensive cover in midfield. He could also be the long term replacement for Matic and could allow us to rotate more. So again in theory we could save ourselves signing two midfielders by using TFM there.

Or alternatively he could come in and be back up for Valencia and we might not have to sign a RB.

Dimitri Mitchell has had a storming few games in Scotland and looks more than ready for a bigger challenge than Scottish football can offer him. Is he ready to come back and be an understudy to Luke Shaw? Or will Jose want an older more established player to rotate with Shaw?

Andreas Pereira has on occasion looked very good in his two loan spells in Spain, he must be ready for a real shot at stepping up and fighting for a place at our club, I feel it has to be now or never for him.

So we have a youngsters who can cover all the positions Jose would ideally like, and I expect he will have to use one or two of them next season as I don't see the club signing 5 players in the summer. I think we might see three. It it was me I would go with a couple of full backs and a playmaker for midfield.

Agree3 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 09:17:09
Good post, but if we were to loose Jones, Smailling and Rojo. ( or two of them), we will have to bring at least one CB.

On Fosu Mensah, personally I think should be played as RB, that's where he has been playing at highest level and performing well, and there is reason is played there by coaches/ managers and not in the midfielders where he played much in the academy.

If Shaw stays I don't see the need of a left back considering Young looks like staying for another season.

For me I think we probably need at least 3 players a CM and 2 midfielders (replacement of Carrick / to rotate with Matic and CAM)

Thanks for reply, Can you tell where the interest have been shown?

Ed001, if DDG was to leave who in your opinion would be the best option to replace him?
Cheers.

19 Feb 2018 10:41:12
Liverpool wants Navas, and Madrid want Allison to be a back up keeper. There are very good insight about Real Madrid transfer plans from Ed002 on their page.

Agree1 1Disagree

20 Feb 2018 04:27:51
Anymore players (any position) we are looking at you can name ed1? What positions are we trying to strengthen in?

Thanks.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - defenders. They seem to be the main priority for the summer. Full backs in particular. There is interest in the Napoli full backs but I am not sure they will want to move this summer as Napoli seem to be building something right now. Also interest in Inter's Cancelo though I am not sure if he is a full back or defender or not, just know he has been recommended.}

20 Feb 2018 08:46:21
We do need strengthening in the full back areas so hopefully we get the defenders correct because many transfers in the recent years haven't worked out as hoped.

On a side note I hope Napoli win the Serie-A this year BUT I have a fear they will be raided a bit by other clubs and might end up in a situation similar to Monaco of this season.

Also ed1 when we were looking at Lindelof you said you expect him to be a good buy, the club had scouted him for a long time and also people who watched him more regularly than you told you he would be a good buy.
So my question is what do you make of him? He hasn't played a lot but he hasn't played well enough on the occasions he has been selected?

Do you we should stick by him and will we stick by him or will he be moved on if possible?

I think we should give him a chance.


Thanks.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - you have to give him more of a chance than he has had if he is to succeed. Though he has not impressed so far, he has been in and out and very few players can impress without a steady run of games.}

20 Feb 2018 12:46:02
The guy needs game time. Some players settle quicker than others.

Ed given we seem to be looking at bringing in 2-3 defenders I'm guessing some are going to be moved on. Any indications on who may be available or if any clubs are interested in any?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Blind, Smalling, Jones, Shaw and Rojo off the top of my head are players Jose would like to be replaced.}

20 Feb 2018 12:56:48
Basically the a whole ne2 defence is needed. I think ww should keep Rojo as a back up and Shaw as someone to rotate with next year.

Ed do you think Young will move on next yeqr or will he still have a part to play as a full back next year.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Jose likes him and would like to keep him, for now at least.}

20 Feb 2018 13:12:09
Cool thnx ed.

Are we interested in Tierney of Celtic? It will be hard for anyone to prise him away from Celtic for sometime still but you don't know until you try.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed007's Note - Utd are just one of the clubs that would love to sign Tierney but it's not going to happen any time soon. It'll be years before he leaves Celtic, if at all.}

20 Feb 2018 14:37:55
Although it might sound a bit rude, bit harsh Bond but surely he will want to move to a different league and look for a new challenge. Surely he will at some point get bored of winning the Scottish League but never really having a strong chance of getting into the latter stages of the CL.

I know he is a born and bred Celtic guy but still.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed007's Note - Maybe in years to come but I wouldn't be at all surprised to see KT emulate Paul McStay and stay at Celtic his entire career. He'll need to move out of his folk's house first lol The latter stages of the CL aren't the be all and end of a footballer's ambition and with the dawning of Euro Super Leagues who knows what the future holds:

www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/43080086

Btw, I know KT has a soft spot for Utd so they would definitely have a strong chance of signing him if he ever does decide to move.}

20 Feb 2018 15:15:14
Get in there bond now we are talking. He seems to have a very sensible head, a humble guy with feet firmly on the ground. It's actually a great thing that his love for Celtic might be enough for him to turn down tons of money, a fancy new city, everything. I know he is living hid dream and that is one of main reason I am very fond of him.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed007's Note - Money won't come into it for him, Deep and he doesn't buy into all the glitz and glamour side of modern football. While other young players are out partying and chasing women KT's sitting in his room playing video games with Paddy Roberts - I think KT's mam even put bunk beds in the room for them ;)

20 Feb 2018 15:45:52
That is a very interesting to hear edu and my fondness for KT is growing by the posts. But shouldn't that be the norm ed? Loyalty before money. Most players at the top tier still make more money than majority of the fans that pay to see them play.

But I hope we sign him down the line and I wouldn't be surprised if he ends being the captain wherever he goes (or stays? )

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed007's Note - Players get far too much too early these days and a lot of them could learn a thing or two from KT about how to carry themselves, simple things he does like making sure everyone outside the ground or training ground gets an autograph or picture no matter how many there is waiting show you the kind of young man he is.
He's already captained Celtic - the 2nd youngest in our history - a few times and his ambition is to be Celtic's club captain at some point.}

20 Feb 2018 19:24:57
KT is right to stay where is is for anther couple of years at least imo. He is working under a very good coach imo and will gain geat experience at Celtic playing every week. If he continues to progress and improve he will move eventually but he is only a kid. No need for him to move yet imo.

No, he's house hunting in Madrid as it's already agreed he'll go in the summer for £85 million so that we at least get out money back and relieve us of the burden of having him in the squad. To sweeten the deal Madrid will chuck in a metre long stick of chorizo.

Interesting rumour this morning, Real ready to move for Pogba. Could be paper trash talk of course but if they did and the money was big, would you sell? Clearly the boy has talent but he has yet to dominate a game or deliver on his potential. Is that down to him, the Manager, or a combination of both.

If the money was silly should we cash in? The problem with that is that he may go on and become the dominating player we believe is in there somewhere, and replacing him will cost a fortune too. For me, I’d seriously consider it though.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - There is zero interest in Paul Pogba from Real Madrid. They have very, very different ideas who they want.}

In the last sharkpood Ed002 said MU were interested as an option for LW if I remember correctly.

I don't know if its still the case after signing Sanchez and Mou repeatedly saying he won't sign an attacking players even though you can't believe everything keeps saying.

Hi eds, is there any truth in the reports from turkey yesterday that fellaini has agreed a deal with fenerbece and signed a pre contract?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I obviously have no idea about any reports in Turkey. I have explained for some months been explaining the situation and discussions that have been going on with Besiktas. If he has agreec a pre-contract with Fenerbahce I am afraid I am not the one to ask. I can't answer any questions about "what do you think of reports ..." Ken.}

16 Feb 2018 16:35:33
It was Besiktas, today he has been linked to Galatasaray. We will see.

Ed002 has been saying long ago Fellaini wanted out last Summer, and it was Mou who intervened.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Feb 2018 16:17:14
The reports were Besiktas.

{Ed002's Note - That makes sense then. It is where I expect him to go.}

16 Feb 2018 16:19:32
Sorry ed my bad. i should have worded that differently.
Thanks.
Its obviously a false report.
Jose is obviously keen for him to stay but perhaps more regular game time is what he is after at this stage of his career.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Feb 2018 11:22:21
He needs to go. If he wants regular game time he has to go. If he stats he's just a bit part player and plan b. Frankly given the wages and his age its better he goes.
