Are the Madrid players not allowed to get a yellow card? Get away with foul after foul, dreadful.

So, played for united when he was younger, didn't work out so went back to his original club., now older with a family and a more settled player who believes in his ability and plays weekly, interest from other prem. clubs for him this summer, he's quoted as saying he'd be open to a return to united, so-would you give wilfred zaha the opportunity to return?

Salah left a jose mourinho team aged 22.

De bruyne left a jose mourinho team aged 22.

Martial is most likely going to leave a jose mourinho team aged 22.

Will martial go on and do wonders like the aforementioned two players at another club?

Agree8 7Disagree

25 Apr 2018 11:15:26
I don't really care if Martial leaves, just like Chelsea fans won't have cared De Bryune and Salah left when they did.

Lets go through the 3.

De Bryune didn't want to work and put the effort in, **sound familiar? So was allowed to leave. (Jose didn't sell him the club did)

Salah, only bought him so Liverpool didn't (my opinion) . Did Jose buy him? Doubt it, I imagine he was a club buy. Also never really pulled up trees in his early Chelsea career, did he?

**Martial (similar to De Bruyne) at a young age can't be bothered to work that extra bit for the manager, may go on to be world class in a side that ships 4 but maybe scores 5 because he doesn't want to work back.

Agree10 8Disagree

I agree with FZZ. The press narrative is incorrect that Jose was at fault for Salah and De Bruyne leaving and that it is coming back to haunt him that they are playing at a world class level. Ed hasn’t mentioned that there was more to than that.

De Bruyne always had the talent but seemed like he needed to move and play regularly to realise his potential. As FZZ said, it’s chelsea’s Fault in deciding to sell not Jose. I would even go as far as saying that with the turnover of chelsea’s Managers, the board are the ones that control most of the ins or outs. Please correct if I am totally off the mark ed.

In regard to Salah, nobody could have predicted he would be this good this year. He has been a joy to watch and is up there with the best, if not the best player on the world. He clearly needed the move away from Chelsea to develop and its simply a match made in heaven with Klopp. I guarantee Chelsea fans weren’t too bothered to see him go and even the most ardent of Liverpool fans were not expecting him to be this good. But hats off to him and Klopp he has been a revelation.

Onto martial - yes very talented and may come back to bite us. But he has had plenty of opportunities and although his stats are very good this season, he clearly isn’t showing the drive and desire the manager expects. If a player isn’t showing that then the manager cannot pick him. Jose can ask rashford, Sanchez, Lukaku and Lingard all to go out and bust a gut and do certain things. But I have yet to see martial do that. At the end of the day Jose needs the type of players to play his system and way effectively. Whether we like his style or not if he has the right personnel then his teams are often there or there abouts at the end of the season. If martial doesn’t fit then he has to go for someone that will do the job. We have the back the manager. Personally I think a loan is best for martial and he is a player I like a lot but it’s about the team at the end of the day.

If real Jose sold them as some believes, but we have told did not, then needs credit because they needed to leave and develop further by playing regularly.

They made the right move for their carrier.

Hates aside they couldn't have played regularly considering the squad Chelsea had.

Latest press reports state that Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG and Juventus are all interested in signing the totally useless, never going to be world class Anthony Martial. Obviously, clearly he has many big name admirers who think he is worth buying.

As for Mourinho's mistakes with Salah and De Bruyne, neither of them were playing under him at Chelsea, so neither really had a chance.

However, Martial has been given games at United all be it limited in number and regularly substituted when he has played. Despite the limited number of minutes and clear mistrust from the manager he has managed to be our second highest scorer this year.

Just imagine what he would achieve if the managed backed him and played him regularly we might have had two players with 20+ goals, he'll we might have even challenged City for the title with an extra 10 goals or so.

Agree7 5Disagree

25 Apr 2018 12:48:39
Good post that Kenedy. You got to look at both sides. If a player is unhappy and wants to move elsewhere for his development then we should wish him the best of luck and move on.

Agree5 4Disagree

25 Apr 2018 12:49:31
If martial is sulking and not trying etc like is stated above why has he been offered a new contract?

Kdb didn't want to work?

Agree5 6Disagree

25 Apr 2018 12:59:15
It’s not that clear cut, KDB had some attitude issues and expected first team football, whereas Salah was behind Hazard and Willian. However, it is quite clear that Jose prefers older players who are less likely to make mistakes. If we look at the ‘first choice’ team for big games in recent weeks, Lukaku is the youngest player, and he’ll be 25 next month. It’s not that Jose doesn’t play younger players, it’s more that he doesn’t trust them in the biggest games.

Personally I don’t think Jose likes to build for the future, and the young players he sold like KDB, Salah, and even Lukaku, are sacrifices he is willing to make in the name of short term success.

Is martial our 2nd top scorer this season?

Agree5 0Disagree

25 Apr 2018 13:38:02
I think Martial wants to play regularly, The club wants him to stay and offered him new contract, refused it and wants out, what would the club do? Let him go that's only the way.
He is talented no doubt but doesn't see future at Utd.

Agree3 0Disagree

25 Apr 2018 14:35:33
This is the reason why we are miles behind City . With players like Martial being our second top scorer. Smalling, Jones and Young in defence.

Even Matic doesn't click it for he looks a tad slow and is getting on.

Unless we improve on these positions ww are still going to be second or even worse next year.

City is looking at some good players such as Dybala and Isco and if they get those two along with Jorginho we are going to need massive upgrades unless you guys are happy to wait for the players mentioned to suddenly turn their careers upside down or be happy with City winning the title next year.

Agree3 5Disagree

25 Apr 2018 15:24:24
The same Dybala who has had a poor second half to this season, and let his club down in the CL quarter final? Grass greener, etc.

Unless they change the rules so City can field 18 players every game, and keep the rest of their stars happy who still can't get a game, I'd not be getting my knickers in a twist just yet about what and how many world stars they're going to buy this summer.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Apr 2018 17:57:56
Dybala will be good in a attacking team. A team that has most of the possesion and loves to attack is completely different to playing for Juventus.

Agree0 2Disagree

25 Apr 2018 18:12:34
Silva, Fernandinho and yaya toure are going to be moving on so there will be space for a few players.

Agree0 3Disagree

25 Apr 2018 18:25:15
Silva is going to be moved on? One of their key players, and close to their best 5his season.

Fernandinho too, another key player for them.

Regardless, Dybala is completely inconsistent and would be in competition with B Silva, KDB, Sterling, and Sane for a place in the team. A player whose hype far outweighs his ability to produce.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Silva wants to go home to be with his young child who has been seriously ill. They will badly miss him as he is the key to their team.}

25 Apr 2018 18:38:58
KDB and lukaku, it's been well documented why they left Chelsea by ed002. That want down to Jose, so that argument to me is null and void.

Jose clearly likes players who work very hard for the team, plenty of times I've seen martial walk around, so there is an issue with that side of his game. No doubt he is a very good player could potentially be much better but Jose likes what Jose likes and it has worked, clearly, with the amount of trophies he has to his name.

Martial is not the 2nd highest scorer, I think that's lingard, and that's a player, who has the attitude and work ethic, that every united forward should aspire to have.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Apr 2018 18:42:56
According to BBC

Lingard and Rashford both have more goals than Martial.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Apr 2018 18:43:23
I didn’t realise that Ed. Been one of the best players here over the last decade, City will struggle without him.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I think so too. He will be a big loss to the Prem as a whole as he is magical to watch.}

25 Apr 2018 19:30:21
Amazing player Siva. i'm very sorry to hear that ed its been out of the press to a large degree obviously.
He seems like a really decent chap a bit like mata.
Maybe isco will replace him in the city team but I've said before one of the best in the prem for many years.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it is a shame but your kids come first at the end of the day.}

It's a bad thing when their fans are making the headlines ed.
Some boy from Ireland and his brother travelled over to watch the game and the one of them ends up in hospital, probably saving up for a while and excited to go over and watch their team play.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Roma? This is commonplace with them. I remember they were vicious in Rome towards Man Utd and Spurs fans in recent years. They were the same back in '84, which is why I never wanted Liverpool to get them.}

25 Apr 2018 10:09:05
Like ed says it's been going on for years Lazio are the same.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - good point. They are goosestepping pricks to add to it those Lazio lot.}

25 Apr 2018 12:41:52
Aren't Roma and Lazio fans considered the worst for this sort of behaviour?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - certainly amongst them.}

25 Apr 2018 17:23:52
Wasn't there an incident a few years back with Lazio where they threw a scooter from stands?

I think those two sets of fans are the worst in Italy.

{Ed001's Note - correct there was.}

Says a lot when you can get a scooter into the stands. Mind you can the same about Figo's pigs head.

Whatever we think about liverpool winning the champions league. One thing I will say is them Roma fans are scum the carry on of some of them . I hope UEFA do something
No need for them in football.

At this moment In time salah is playing at Messi Ronaldo level .
Who would of liked to sign him in the summer.
Some times players just need a bit of time.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed0333's Note - I think the whole world would like to sign him atm.

24 Apr 2018 22:11:44
he is phenomenal at the moment. And he is a really likeable guy who is humble and seems a really nice person. If liverpool win he has to win the ballon d'or. it is a real possibility liverpool will win it. I do think he would not replicate this sort of form at any other team apart from football because of the way klopp's tactics are. he would do well at city but i don't think he would be as prolific.

Agree1 2Disagree

{Ed0333's Note - I think he’s that good a football player he’ll be great wherever he plays mate

24 Apr 2018 22:21:28
He is as good as anyone in the world at the moment .
Just shows you the benefit of getting a player playing to his potential.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 Apr 2018 23:28:34
Fair enough ed not doubting his ability, he’s up with the best at the moment. But I feel Klopp is the one that’s brought it out of him and he wouldn’t be this prolific if he were elsewhere. and fair play to him because Salah is unplayable this season. Until he came up against Ashley young 😂😂.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0333's Note - lol. Yes Ashley Young and the other 54 players you put on him. I think Klopp deserves to take some of the credit for the players metirotic ascendency especially as he didn’t want him in the first place, but in the end Salah’s unadultared naked determination, steel, and unique skill set has to take the majority of the plaudits.

24 Apr 2018 23:47:24
Rivalry aside you can't deny Liverpool are playing some beautiful football and salah is an absolute joy to watch, had he been at Utd this summer there's no way he'd have replicated this form due to the way we play sadly. I say this with gritted teeth but I expect them to win the champions league.

Agree2 1Disagree

24 Apr 2018 23:48:35
Agree jred Klopp has his team playing out their skin. Especially the front 3. I feel majority of our players aren’t even playing 50% to their capacity. We have some very good attacking players. Don’t need to add any imo and Jose needs to be getting them playing to their potential. We will start blowing team away then.

Agree0 2Disagree

25 Apr 2018 06:38:24
Fair play to him, he's gone beyond the amount of goals Ronaldo scored when we last won the champions league. Who'd of thunk it.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Apr 2018 09:01:03
Loll what potentiall. With potential you need a brain and some of them don't have it.

Agree0 4Disagree

25 Apr 2018 12:27:57
all the plaudits for salah are deserved on his record and style of play this season, but for all I don't like doggy dentured firmino it has to be said that he really has helped him along the way.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Apr 2018 22:00:56
Salah's smashing it to bits. he's got to be up there with Ronaldo and Messi this year for the ballond'or.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed0333's Note - Agreed. He has to get it if we win the cup.

24 Apr 2018 22:19:59
It will be tough to win the cup. But i'd reckon you will have more of a chance if Real beat Bayern and you play Real in the final.

If it is Bayern that goes through to the final then i'd reckon it will be game over. As tactically Bayern will just see the game through.

Agree1 1Disagree

Nice little fluff article in the Guardian about De Rossi. He is a player I would have liked to see playing for Utd. He's probably a little old for a move although his leadership qualities are something we could probably do with right now.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Apr 2018 19:25:10
Way too old now but if he scores a hat trick tonight i'd give him the freedom of Manchester😁.

Agree2 0Disagree

24 Apr 2018 19:30:29
Agree mancman he is an absolute warrior. Could really do with him now and would have loved to have seen him play for our club. The closest thing to Roy Keane imo. Apparently he wears the no 16 because it is what Keano wore. Hope he leads Roma to champions league glory.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Apr 2018 21:22:48
Poor de Rossi like Totti he should have moved to a better club and he would have probably won trophies.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Apr 2018 22:10:18
I think De Rossi was threatened by the ultras/ hard-core fanbase. They wield a lot of power at some clubs and certainly had a say in him not moving if memory serves me right.
