Reports of varane for 53mil.

DId it go through? SO excited.

2.) 04 Feb 2018 14:00:26
It was reported on football365 so I relayed that information here. On a rumours site.

He was invisible in the game against Huddersfield. Shouldn’t have bothered.

This is getting tiresome. we are second to a record breaking side at the moment. We are not dreadful. We are actually very very good. we have the second most goals in the league and the best defense in the league. We are on track to finish 4 places higher up the league than we did last year with a much better GD. We are also in a superior European competition and progressing well.

There are so many people on here that sound bitter. We as United fans are spoiled rotten and it shows. Yes it hurts that it's City of all people that are dominating at the moment but quit comparing us to them and look at what we have achieved since LVG was pushed.

The improvement is there for people to see, they are just choosing not to.


1.) 18 Dec 2017 18:46:05
12 days I agree with u 12 times over.

2.) 18 Dec 2017 19:39:00
I think you are comparing the wrong things and using the wrong benchmarks.

What you are saying in a nutshell is because a guy beat up 10 people last weekend, and this weekend he only beat up 5 people he is becoming a better citizen, so quit complaining. There is no denying he is behaving better of course, but is it good enough compared to the guy that beats nobody up (City)?

We need to compare ourselves against City at the minute, both in terms of points on the board and the manner of obtaining those points. We are a hard watch, grinding out wins, shutting up shop against any half decent side we play against and I can't see how much more improvement is available if we continue to go down this path - it's the same performance virtually every single week (horrible to watch) . Yes we will pick up the occasional fortunate win against decent opposition (Arsenal, to a lesser extent Spurs), but on the whole our focus is on not getting beat, our focus prior to the LVG/ Moyes debacle was "go and beat" whoever we play for the most part.

So yes we are doing better on paper, but I think we are using clever accounting techniques and we are the footballing equivalent of Enron at the minute. The manager doesn't seem committed, players don't seem on-board, hard to deny we are playing long ball more than we should, slow football when we don't resort to hoofing it, it's a slippery slope that requires £150m+ every summer just to keep it going it seems. Most of us would agree we need 4-5 world class signings to compete with City still, how much will that cost and would they want to play for a team that plays our way? Then can Jose's negative tactics compete with Pep's tactics if we do get his ideal players, (not to mention our European rivals)? If Pep was managing us and Jose was managing City, I genuinely think the Utd would be top of the league, it is a massive factor unfortunately and I think it's too easily overlooked - not sure what the answer is but Jose is not going to overturn City going down the path he is taking in my opinion.

Our main rival has improved more than we have, that is a massive problem for me, because they already has a big head-start.

I agree with you Beast although I’m probably a bit more optimistic:-) I’m never sure which United is going to turn up these days. The entertaining free flowing fast passing team I love watching or the scared park the bus and hit it long United which is becoming more frequent. I get that there can be off days but since when do united hold on by their finger nails for 3 points against WBA. We should be smashing these teams out of sight, beating them before they’ve even stepped onto the pitch.
Forget this defend in numbers. Leave the top 3 up front and get a playmaker in who can get the ball to them quickly.

{Ed025's Note - im with you mate..

I think it would be fair to compare us vs city if you extrapolated our matches with pogba to a full healthy/ non suspended season. He’s shown how much our team is centered on his unique skill set with how much more we win and how many more goals a game we score when he’s playing. Feel free to do the math but I’m pretty sure we’d be right behind city, and definitely would have had a better chance in the derby. What gives me hope despite frustrations is that if we can keep pogba on the field we are much closer to city if not equal in terms of quality and results. It’s been during pogba-less stretches that we’ve fallen behind.

5.) 19 Dec 2017 09:00:42
I think (hope) unitedred, that that is exactly what we are building towards. (We hung on for our lives in more than a few Fergie era games though against 'small' teams. )

6.) 19 Dec 2017 12:06:00
beast will have u believe that during SAF days, teams would poop themselves before playing us, but nostalgia can be tricky coz from a realistic vantage point it was nothing like that.

Also, I'm not sure if pep would've beaten Jose had the roles been reversed.

If u haven't seen improvement in the team in the past two odd years then we'll always be at loggerheads.

7.) 19 Dec 2017 15:03:30
I agree KG. Pogba has only played in 8 PL games. 7 wins and a draw. 24 goals for and 6 goals against and we have scored 4 goals in 4 off those games.

8.) 19 Dec 2017 16:04:32
I think KG hit the nail on the head there, 100% agree with that.



22 Sep 2017 17:30:31
Do any of the Eds know the situation with Fellaini's contract? Is he likely to sign or is this going to be his last season for us.

He has changed a lot of opinions through sheer hard work and his form at the moment and for much of last season has been very good. He is limited yes but tries his hardest every week and we cannot ask for more from him.

Personally I'd like him to sign on again.


{Ed002's Note - nothing is resolved.}

1.) 23 Sep 2017 18:11:59
Thank you.



08 Jun 2017 08:20:34
Costa speaking in the press today, "Antonio Conte has told me by message that I do not follow at Chelsea and that's it. Conte said he did not count on me for next season.

"It's a shame, I've already forwarded the message to Chelsea people to decide. But it is clear that the coach does not count on me and does not want me there. You have to find a team. "

If this is the case Eds would we have any interest? Or am I just particularly poor at maths?


{Ed004's Note - I highly doubt we have shown an interest and I wouldn't want him here}

1.) 08 Jun 2017 08:48:51
He doesn't want to stay in England.

2.) 08 Jun 2017 09:13:58
Was he not one of the players that fell out with Jose the other year.

3.) 08 Jun 2017 09:55:19
Imagine the flak Jose would be getting for allegedly texting a player and saying "I don't need you you are out " doesn't seem a decent way to treat a player who has helped win you a PL in your first season . horrible knb that he is.



18 Aug 2015 11:50:33
Balague is claiming that Pedro to us will be finalised this week.


1.) 18 Aug 2015 13:50:07
That that deal dead then ha.

2.) 18 Aug 2015 16:27:51
Balague is not very reliable when it comes to transfer rumours, although Pedro is definitely on our Radar and should be wrapped up sooner rather than later.

I think today was continued proof of progress coupled with success under Jose. Our record in big games is much improved and every aspect of our game is better than it was the season before. Long may Jose remain in charge as far as I am concerned if progress continues.


1.) 21 Apr 2018 22:41:51
Il get the pop corn.

He’s stabilising the club, and irrespective of what he does/ doesn’t win next year the club will be in a better place than when he joined. I still think he could be with us for many more years. Right now he’s putting trophies in the cabinet with a poor squad. What more can people ask for?



08 Apr 2018 01:06:42
Herraras assist! Outrageous piece of skill.


1.) 08 Apr 2018 08:08:40
It was a sublime chest down. If Silva or De Bruyne had done the same thing then the commentators would have reached for the tissues. The chat around Youngs challenge was outrageous from the MOTD commentator. "Catching aguero on the knee, absolutely a red card" and then saying they should have had 2 penalties etc, ridiculous.

2.) 08 Apr 2018 09:18:45
The Young ‘handball’ was never a penalty, was not deliberate as he slipped and had his hand planted, the 2nd one was reckless and a pen for me, wouldn’t be surprised at a red either, glad it wasn’t given mind.



27 Mar 2018 16:43:21
Pep is having trouble filling his bench as it Is, I feel for the guy having to field 12 subs next year in the champions league.


1.) 27 Mar 2018 17:10:26
I'm sure he can put a couple of refs on there, might as well make it official.



13 Mar 2018 22:32:05
As much as I am a big fan of Pogba and think he COULD be one of the best in the world, something is clearly not right.

He looks to me like the last couple of months of Di Maria's time at the club - lazy, short on confidence and unable to do the simplest of things like a 5 yard pass.

If his heart is not in it then he needs to go, otherwise he needs to pull his finger out and show us what he is capable of on a more consistent basis.

Today was a very poor performance and result and I can see that the doom mongers are already out. This week has been two steps forward and now one back. It doesn't seem like it right now but it is still one step forward compared to last year.

We are moving (slowly) in the right direction. But total agreement about today - that was put simply not good enough.




11 Feb 2018 16:46:11
Well that was poo.

The 4 2 3 1 just doest work for us. We need to change up if we want to challenge. Carrick mct or herrara to come in for lingard and free Pogba up and get him closer to the opposition goal.


1.) 11 Feb 2018 17:03:20
Played 3 in cm today . G Neville picked up on it . Linders played next to pogba today with matic just behind them .
Martial lukaku Sanchez a front 3.

2.) 11 Feb 2018 17:18:48
Disagree jred. If we're going to play 3 in midfield then matic and Herrera behind Pogba.

3.) 11 Feb 2018 18:09:25
But we did play 3 in midfield .

4.) 11 Feb 2018 20:47:00
Lingard isn't disaplined (like Pogba) to play that role. He's a ten or a wide player.

I can see Sanchez playing out there next year but being given the freedom that mata has to roam inside.

Dan you're right the gap is closing. We finished 6th last year and now we're ahead of them. Poch is a good manager but has really dine nothing of note. He did a better job at Southampton.

One of the Red Devil, I just scanned your post - And will it be for RB or Holding role? -

and saw Rob Holding. Panic ensued for a minute!

I also hope not - just figured he'd have already signed the pre contract if he was going abroad. The only places he could step up from Liverpool in England is us and city.

I think the spurs team will break up soon and poch will be fired within 3 years.

Ken I agree but martial instead of rashford. More of a goal threat.

He should never have been sold. By all accounts lvg has very poor people skills. If any of you have read the biography about Robert enke, Louis comes across as a total git.

I think Sanchez will predominantly play from the right next year but have the freedom to roam like mata does now. I think martial and rashford will stay and mata will leave.

I want them both to stay.
