A lot of talk matic will play in a back 3 tonight.

Agree1 Disagree1

27 Aug 2018 17:41:22
That's pretty much how he was utilised a lot last season anyway.

28 Aug 2018 19:41:51
And as it panned out it looked like we played nobody at the back.

26 Aug 2018 10:16:17
I wish someone would post a rumour I'm sick of seeing the same one at the top of rumours page lol.

{Ed001's Note - there you go then. I have posted this at the top of the rumours page for you....}

Agree12 Disagree0

26 Aug 2018 10:45:59
I thought it was only me with the Cinderella story.

26 Aug 2018 12:33:22

26 Aug 2018 13:07:17
Thank you Ed 😂.

{Ed001's Note - glad to help out mate. I am good like that.}

26 Aug 2018 15:45:52
You are top top top Editor Ed!

{Ed001's Note - never a truer word spoken on this site....}

27 Aug 2018 02:58:42
Not exactly a rumour but has has anyone seen Salomon Kalu of Bordeaux. He seems a real prospect. Any rumours about him?

27 Aug 2018 12:22:46
I heard he was a terrible fisherman hendon.

27 Aug 2018 23:21:14
Bit of a wine drinker too.

16 Aug 2018 10:38:00
Lots of media reports indicating that the Pogba / Jose relationship has broken down completely. Pogba seems to have set his heart on Spain, whilst I am not a huge fan of Jose I think he has treated Pogba reasonably and consistently. We should sell him quickly, if possible, for £90m plus and use the money wisely before the end of the European transfer window.

Agree6 Disagree43

16 Aug 2018 11:15:28
What will you use the money for?

16 Aug 2018 12:58:09
Perhaps Milinkovic-Savic as a replacement. Defence is ok but we should play Sanchez on the right.

16 Aug 2018 13:11:00
I don’t think you understand. We can’t sign players now.

16 Aug 2018 13:15:10
Living in Cinderella land?

16 Aug 2018 13:17:43
Correct, we could sell to Barcelona by 31 August but would not be able to buy until January.

16 Aug 2018 14:04:20
Must be true, it's in The Sun and they never make things up to sell papers.

{Ed004's Note - Or put sentences in quotes without any source referenced}

16 Aug 2018 14:46:30
Oh dear. Football Manager clearly ignores the closure of transfer windows. Sell and buy whenever you want.

16 Aug 2018 14:49:14
If there is one player we should get rid of its alexis sanchez, we haven't played well since he joined.

16 Aug 2018 16:00:32
Maybe he means buy in advance for January's window. His price will go up then, so best to secure the replacement now before letting Pogba go.

Alternatively he didn't realise the rule change. lol.

16 Aug 2018 16:12:12
Well he replied 3 hours earlier clearly stating he knew of the rules.

16 Aug 2018 17:01:55
Clearly I was late to the ball.

16 Aug 2018 21:18:18
'Transfer Window' sounds better than 'Registration Period'.

16 Aug 2018 23:51:27
Hi all,
Thanks to the Eds as always.
Has anyone considered that the press are creating a monster here?! Last season the story wasn’t any different and I remember Pogba interrupting Jose during a post match interview (he hadn’t even played in the match) to celebrate with his manager. Is there not a chance here that the media are purely trying to create a mess? I think so.

17 Aug 2018 03:18:35
Or more of a mess.

17 Aug 2018 04:49:53
Reading rumors now that AC Milan are close to agreeing a EUR40m deal to purchase Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. And we were thinking that Utd were quoted EUR100 (>_.

{Ed001's Note - United were.}

17 Aug 2018 11:12:59
I think the press have an agenda, I can’t believe I’m typing this but I’m starting to feel sorry for Jose. I hope he has a man to man with Pogba and tells him he can be the best in the world if he does as he is told, but that he also plays him where he can excel.

17 Aug 2018 11:37:15
That €40M is just loan fee per rumours. Ac will have to pay another €100M to make the deal permanent.

Even though I don't think it will happen.

17 Aug 2018 22:11:16
Can Utd still loan players upto Sunday . James Wilson to Aberdeen on Tuesday. I'm sure we have until Sunday to sign anyone for a loan period ie SMS 😆😆.

18 Aug 2018 11:22:21
Probably about Wilson’s level.

11 Aug 2018 13:51:48
Ed02 - do you happen to know if we are still in dialogue with anyone regarding the sales of Darmian and Rojo?

Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Inter remain keen on Darmian and Barnett spoke with Comolli about Rojo.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Aug 2018 19:09:09
That’s funny, because I need to speak to Rojo about his barnet.

11 Aug 2018 23:38:18
So we may still see Darmian go to Italy and Rojo to Turkey before the window closes.

Thanks as always for the info ed02.

{Ed002's Note - Stuff will happen.}

12 Aug 2018 11:05:14
Fingers crossed.

12 Aug 2018 12:42:33
That is great - thanks for the info ed. I wish them all the best but neither have been able to progress to the level required whilst here.

This will mean more room for movement in the transfer windows to come.

12 Aug 2018 20:59:59
Well with the Italian window closing this Friday the 17th we will soon know about Darmian.

If he does go i guess we will see Young at RB until either Valencia or Dalot are fit.

12 Aug 2018 22:18:33
Makes sense. Surprised we let TFM go out but may mean Jose will give Shaw a run out for a few games.

14 Aug 2018 04:50:05
I agree about TFM but he needs games and once Valencia and Depot are fit we have 4 for 2 and he needs games so this is best for him and us long term.

11 Aug 2018 12:26:57
Manchester United academy graduates played a total of 253 minutes last night, that’s 200 minutes more than Manchester City graduates played all of last season, but Mourinho doesn’t play youth apparently.

Agree14 Disagree8

11 Aug 2018 12:57:55
I hate city as much as any united fan but now it's just getting ridiculous. Pogba, Rashford come under our academy graduates. City has just started developing youth which they think should be capable of playing at the highest level. There are a couple who are very good and even played for them last season and didn't look out of place due to their style of play. They just bought a club in Spain where these players will play against the best and come back to be in the first team. Jose playing these guys yesterday was out of necessity.

11 Aug 2018 13:14:33
Nothing stopping guardiola signing micah richards and michael johnson back and playing them. I wouldn't have a problem with it lol.

Jose can't win can he, he plays youthful academy players but it not quite the correct variation of mystical magical youth player people want. Then he sticks to type and he's use accused of wanting to fill the team with experienced players over 30 and has no long term vision.

11 Aug 2018 14:48:04
OK with your powerful reply and the mention of Micah Richards you have managed to change my mind. Now I agree that Jose is a very youth oriented manager. I think we should adopt this style of play throughout our youth system so that there is a more seamless entry for our academy graduates into the first team. Can't wait to see chong playing at left back.

11 Aug 2018 16:20:25
Anyone really see city playing youth much this season?

12 Aug 2018 01:35:26
I think Foden might get a few games. I actually hipe he does as he is a special talent.

12 Aug 2018 05:24:35
Can't see Foden getting games.

12 Aug 2018 08:28:24
Foden might get a run of FA/ League Cup games. He looks a good player.

12 Aug 2018 11:05:55
He'll probably be at palace or Newcastle on 18 months.

10 Aug 2018 09:14:55
This window has been nothing short or embarrassing. 20 points of city last year we've done nothing to improve. if woody isn't gunna trust jose spending to take the team on, then why have jose here in the first place?
The quality of players moving around and the money being paid, we should have been writing cheques for fun!
‘We can do things financially that no other team can’! Pull the other one! Everton have done better business.
Lets hope this feeling of doubt doesn't effect the players, or maybe im just being glum
C’mon united!

Agree8 Disagree23

10 Aug 2018 10:03:38
What's embarrassing is the amount of hissy fits over transfers. If better players aren't available at the right price than what we already have then why spend money needlessly? I think it's quite admirable that we've not just wasted money we've strengthened midfield and it's time for mourinho to stand up and be counted and actually coach because believe it or not he's bought 2 new cbs already and as it stands we have one of the strongest squads in the league. It's up to him to get the best out of them. Comments like "It'll be a tough season with the players we have" won't help his cause.

10 Aug 2018 10:10:10
There is still the possibility of improving without new signings.
Get players to gel, understand the system better, get automatisms going, develop talented players, change of player positions to better suit their skill set etc.

I know Jose is not know for any of these things, but the club has it in the DNA actually.

Let’s hope for the best and have a look at the results and progress before panicking.

10 Aug 2018 10:26:32
Problem is, allot of teams can offer the money united can now. The only players united need to sign are stars and the club does not really appeal to stars at this point in time.

10 Aug 2018 11:31:50
Alexis Sanchez, Andreas Pereira, Fred have come in and only Daley Blind has left so far. However you address the situation that is still an improvement to last season. Sanchez signed in January but it was always said it was for this season.

Mourinho wanted a defender, would a defender have really made that much difference? Our issue is our identity under Mourinho.

If Luke Shaw has a positive impact then that would be a bonus. If the board have really blocked signing ageing players for inflated fees then well done to them.

10 Aug 2018 12:19:28
this is spot on

Wake up United fans, we're going down the pan fast and will just go further and further down the table if this rot is not stopped and quick!

Glazers Out! Woodward Out! Jose Out! (if his football doesn't improve and quick!

10 Aug 2018 13:41:50
A hissy fit would usually be followed by ‘we done’ or something along thise lines, anyone with any sort of knowledge can see a handfull or players that moved this year would improve our squad, the problem isn't wether we spend or not its what we spend on, look at the money for sanchez, we could have signed 2players on his wages alone, just to spite city.
Several first teamers are not doing enough to cement a starting spot and jose i right to point it out, would 2 or 3 younger hungry players not give shaw, martial (and dare i say it pogba) the kick up the backside they need?
Its not all doom and gloom as mentioned by IM7 there are a few to come in that fingers crossed are what we were missing last year, just don't want to be sat here on feb 1st saying same things, or reading jose out!

10 Aug 2018 13:49:35
Ffs the window is closed get over it and get behind the players we've got .

I surely cannot be the only person who is sick and tired of coming on here and seeing the same crap day in day out we support Manchester United not jim white and his yellow deadline day tie .

10 Aug 2018 16:01:28
Well said red wolf my thoughts we should start bringing talent through the system like we always have and build a good foundation like the class of 92 i no it’s a long shot but at least we are giving them a shot we have some really good talent coming through what’s there to lose.

10 Aug 2018 18:18:28

I assure you that you aren’t the only one, once the kids go back to school we should see less tantrums on here during the day and people can have sensible discussions.

10 Aug 2018 21:00:50
What were your thoughts on Moyes and LvG, GDS2? Glowing reviews I'd imagine?

10 Aug 2018 22:31:01

Not sure what that has to do with anything above or why it’s relevant at all. If you don’t think some of the posts above aren’t hissy fits and a little pathetic then I don’t know what to say.

10 Aug 2018 22:42:01
I'm sure you know what I mean. There is more than 1 way to support the club.

It's fine, roll on the new season. I'm sure it will be world class.

11 Aug 2018 00:03:12
You think the people above are ‘supporting the club’?

11 Aug 2018 02:23:42
Personlly I think the defence held up well considering first time in premiership partnership and good play in patches and a result. That'll do for me.

09 Aug 2018 16:30:49
TFM to Fulham.

Agree1 Disagree7

09 Aug 2018 18:54:00
Well, That's that then . Everton have come up on the rails and got Mina and got Gomes on loan just to rub it in.
I've a strong feeling Jose may pack his bags sooner than thought, The Glaziers and Peckerwood have shafted him big time .
But it's us the fan's who gave been shafted the deepest, Think Jose new months ago that the transfer pot was not what was promised.
I really hope he goes for his own sanity. I hope we finish with naff all again, Then hopefully Peckerwood will soon follow.
54 years a red, never doubted the team ever, never wished them bad luck and losses, But enough is enough we are supposed to be a footballing team, What we have become now is a laughing stock and a commercial whore.

09 Aug 2018 19:07:31
"Commercial whore"
Well put, I completely agree.

09 Aug 2018 19:24:15
Long time reader, first time poster. Eds do a great job with the site.

I might be reading too much into it, but are the board trying to manage Jose out?
We've spent huge sums since Fergie left and not always in the right place. Pogba, Martial and Shaw so far staying which, if we believe the media, is against Jose wishes. Perhaps hoping next manager will get the best out of them?
Style of play against traditions and current trends/ fan ideals.

{Ed002's Note - I have answered regarding this whole subject since the fans fouled all of the club's plans up and he joined.}

09 Aug 2018 19:44:25
I totally agree Jose's been well and truly shafted off the board so he should take the hint and walk so we can get someone in to get us playing the man utd way.
I would go for Brendan Rodgers I know he managed liverpool but he would be a breath of fresh air to our club I've no doubt he could get much more out of our squad than jose would.
I'm expecting a lot of backlash for this 😂😂😂 but I think. it would be a good shout.

09 Aug 2018 19:53:08
Brendan Rogers!

Do me a favour.

09 Aug 2018 20:34:57
Allegri wouldn't have been much better.

09 Aug 2018 20:38:16
Ed002, sorry to ask but where is the info on what you mentioned above regarding Jose and the clubs plans and the fans etc.

Is it searchable or can someone point me in the right direction please.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained pepeatedly since the day he signed - read the posts or search.}

09 Aug 2018 20:42:31
Fact is Allegri was lined up, we spoke, LVG got the boot and now we have jose who has won 3 trophies, improves our stats and rightfully recognised we needed the correct positions strengthening, maybe Jose is the right man and he’s the man we’ve got, he was rightfully frustrated at the transfer window, money has been spent but it was always going to take a lot of money and a big overhaul to undo the Moyes/ LVG eras. He may not play how we all want? He doesn’t how I want but I am fully behind him and the squad we have cz I think there is more to come from this current crop.

09 Aug 2018 20:58:58
Brendan rogers?

Put that whiskey down mate, its time for bed 🙂.

09 Aug 2018 21:31:37Guaranga not sharkhead Rodgers .

09 Aug 2018 22:19:55
This is all such nonsense.

10 Aug 2018 02:48:37
I want rid of Mourinho probably more than any fan I know. I’m also sick of woodward seeming only interested in commercial deals and I think we need someone else dealing with transfers. But wishing bad on the club in the hope we get rid of them? I don’t think that’s something any true supporter would ever do.

10 Aug 2018 06:28:35
Good article this morning on the BBC website about why we didn't sign our targeted CB.
If the main defensive target was Varne and we couldn't get him, what is the point in signing anyone for the sake of signing someone, for me I would be happy to go with Bailly and Jones as the defensive partnership for the year.

10 Aug 2018 08:53:51
we have a good squad, Woodward has facilitated the captures of Sanchez, Di Maria, Pogba and others so we can hardly say he can't get big players in. Mourinhos attitude is terrible but he has won 3 trophies.

what baffles me is that we need defensive reinforcements and we let Tuanzebe and TFM leave on loan when they had a good pre season and we need them. we have defensive injuries and frailties and we should have trusted in them two!

10 Aug 2018 08:54:40
Let’s not right Man Utd of just yet let’s see how they get on against the foxes later and then we can see more clearly what we have to work on clearly we have a defensive problem but our overall team is strong let’s hope moaning Mourinho cheers up and gets behind his players like he did early Chelsea days.

10 Aug 2018 09:04:14
Hope this is a loan. We've got a good player on our hands for the right manager.

09 Aug 2018 12:08:27
Late double deal for Toby and Danny Rose?

Agree2 Disagree21

09 Aug 2018 12:47:17
Yeh there having there medical as we speak.

09 Aug 2018 13:01:57
And they are also giving Alli on a season long loan with option to sign for 20m.

09 Aug 2018 13:18:49
No chance of levy strengthening a top four rival with one player ket alone two.

09 Aug 2018 13:42:06
Sailor, clean your ears out. We were offered the tea lady Sally on a loan deal. Woodward is considering as she marketed along with our new bootlace sponsor who are PG Tips.

09 Aug 2018 10:09:43
Do you still expect a CB and RW to come in Ed001, even this late in the window? Remember you saying RW is a priority position a few days ago, hopeful.

{Ed001's Note - no mate, I think it is finished now but you never know, deals can be done quickly if the selling club needs to sell.}

Agree3 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 10:24:42
Most likely a CB Ed? Reports saying Spurs want player + cash for Alderweireld, get him in and i'll be a lot more excited for the season.

{Ed001's Note - it is hard to say as it is dependant on other teams and moves going through.}

09 Aug 2018 10:31:27
If they are sellling Kurzawa it is probably because they are confident in getting Sandro.

09 Aug 2018 10:39:13

This just goes to show that it’s all about shiny new signings for some people, if we don’t sign anyone then so be it, I’m still excited for the new season, one player isn’t going TJ chabge that and we would probably just get him cheap in January anyway, that’s only 4 months away.

09 Aug 2018 10:44:43
Gds we've all been pointing out the weaknesses in this team for at least 2 seasons. I think its right to assume most of us expected those to be sorted out thus summer. Jose has also pointed out said weaknesses and says he asked for 5 players to address them. He got 1 and 1 for the future. Not really adequate is it.

09 Aug 2018 10:45:47
You’re right GDS2, one player wouldn’t change anything. Just like if we hadn’t signed RVP we still would have won the league, absolute toff mate.

09 Aug 2018 10:54:23
GDS2 - I agree some people want signings for signings sake. But do you think we have done anything like enough to close the gap on City with our pre-season?

Any honest Utd fan will not be confident that we are now 19 points better, or City are 19 points worse (or a mix)? If anything the gap looks like widening and that is without factoring in the other competition. We were very fortunate to amass the points tally we did last season, now we have an even grumpier manager (deals not happened), grumpier squad if all the interview/ press are to be believed and no new brainwave with the way we play if friendly tactics are anything to go by. We had our luck last season if you ask me, this season we are in for a Moyes like season if we aren't careful results wise and more of the same performance wise.

Signings were essential this summer, more so than ever. Yet we have labored again, just like we do on the pitch.

Utd should be fighting for titles, not happy to just take part.

09 Aug 2018 11:03:14
Of course it is GDS, not like we actually NEED players to improve the team, probably moaning about the lack of width last season. 🤷‍♂️.

09 Aug 2018 11:10:54

I never said one player wouldn't make us better, just that I am still excited for the new season, am I not allowed to be because we might not win the league?

09 Aug 2018 11:17:15
Beast, the majority of those nineteen points were negative results against the poorest teams in the league, get it right against those teams and the gap and the seemingly unbridgeable chasm that some fans allude to doesn't seem that great. City had a great season last year and that is undeniable but the rest of the chasers blew hot and cold and couldn't put a run together to make the league semi interesting.

09 Aug 2018 11:49:28
Sky sports at it again with their lies just trying to keep people tuned into their deadline day claptrap.

10 Aug 2018 09:01:30
@GDS2 well this obviously all your fault. How dare you write a positive, full of encouragement, chirpy, just what the doctor ordered, wonderful, vibrant, supportive and optimistic comment here :)

09 Aug 2018 09:44:13
ESPN reporting the club are after PSG lb Layvin Kurzawa, do any of you guys know if he was mentioned in the sharkopod?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 10:01:32
Hey Darv. Don't remember hearing about him.

09 Aug 2018 10:27:34
Thanks, I didn't want to bother the Ed's, thanks why I asked the forum.
