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.

Thank you.

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.

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.

Before the doom mongers get on here, I wanted to say a few things.

Man City were always going to have more of the ball today as they will against pretty much any team in football at the moment. However, despite that, they didn't really create a whole lot from open play today. De Gea made a couple of good saves but nothing that he wouldn't routinely do.

We also didn't create much and still could have come away with a draw but for a wonder double save.

Both goals we conceded were poor set piece goals which is not acceptable.

City were better and deserved the win I think, but Jose set up in a way we knew he would and but for two pieces of awful defending from Lukaku we could have nicked this.

SHORT VERSION: It's not all that bad but City are a bit good.


1.) 10 Dec 2017 19:13:32
Get real 12 days. We were truly woeful. i'm sorry to say we will never win the league again with Mourinho in charge. If anybody actually thinks lukaku is fit to wear the red shirt is deluded, Iā€™d rather have Gary birtles upfront than that useless lump.

2.) 10 Dec 2017 19:17:40
25% possession at home is pathetic whichever way you want to cover it up. You need the ball to score. So unless we can improve on our possession, we're not going to win anything.

3.) 10 Dec 2017 19:19:41
Doom monger here.

We did limit the chances City had because we put 99.9% of our focus on doing that. They still had several more chances as well, granted Lukaku missed a sitter, but our goal came out of nowhere. There keeper literally could have been on a deck chair all game (Lukaku would still have hit his face) .

Every Utd fan worth their salt wanted us to take the game to City today, make them defend. When we did attack they looked harried and clumsy but that was only a couple of times. Lost count how many times the ball drifted over of off Lukaku's head back into City's possession.

I'd rather have gone down trying to beat them, than keeping the score close and still getting beat. Walker got booked after a few minutes, how many times did we overlap or apply pressure on him? It was just poor, park the bus and hope for a bit of luck. Well we got that luck with the first goal, but we got exactly what we deserved the other end, because no team with our pedigree should play at home against their rivals with the chief focus not to get beat. We needed 3 points more than they did today, nothings ever going to change whilst we have Jose's negative tactics and teams exist like City that play to win and entertain at the same time.

We shouldn't rely on luck.

I suspect (and hope) that Shaw will play on Tuesday. I think Jose sees Shaw as first choice this year barring injury. Played cb the other day - Jose perhaps trying to bring more defensive solidity to his game.


1.) 10 Sep 2017 19:25:45
There's no way Shaw's first start is a Champion's League game, he will be eased back in.

2.) 10 Sep 2017 19:29:42
I think The league cup game the following week. He might get another 90 mins before that. He has hardly played for 2 years he needs a lot of time to build his fittness and strength. I think in order to give him the best chance is not to rush him back. I think that he is being handled well. i'd say it will be another month at least before he will begin to push for a regular starting place.



12 Jul 2017 13:58:35
Football365 reporting that Zlatan is recovering much quicker than previously thought and may earn a contract to the end of the year. Can anyone confirm whether we would be interested in this deal and if so how would it affect our shape.

I'm all for it as long as he does not play every game like last year.

If the beginning of November is likely then it could be four quality strikers that all offer slightly different things just like 99.



1.) 12 Jul 2017 14:12:51
Can u see zlatan sitting on the bench.

2.) 12 Jul 2017 14:17:34
Makes good sense to me. If he is back by October then we can at least give him a 3 month contract and see how he goes in time for the Winter window and MLS opening up. Possibly may mean we let Martial go on loan with a call back clause, if we sign a winger like Sanchez/ Perisic.

We'd have to be pretty unlucky to have both Lukaku and Rash get injured before October and adding the insurance to any Martial loan deal would be sensible. Especially if he is going to struggle for games.

3.) 12 Jul 2017 14:20:40
Nah, not for me. I think we need to move on from Zlatan and start building a team for the future.

Zlatan was a good addition last year for his goals and winning mentality but in my opinion bringing him back would be a step backwards and would block the progression of our younger players.

There's no point having younger players in the squad just to have them sat on the bench and never playing.

Also, in 99 we played with two up front.

4.) 12 Jul 2017 14:38:55
Mancman on the money.

5.) 12 Jul 2017 15:32:28
He probably is. I'd love for us to play two up top against most teams again. I know it won't happen but it would be nice wouldn't it?

6.) 12 Jul 2017 16:25:08
Romelu Lukaku said he had asked Zlatan for permission to wear his shirt number. I found that an odd thing to say of zlayan was released. So there may be some truth in this rumour.

{Ed002's Note - ZI is still there getting fit.}

7.) 12 Jul 2017 17:42:11
It makes perfect sense. United can make it work for the first half of the season, and then when the schedule gets all heavy, we can add a striker to the squad for the second half of the season. He should be able to overcome the injury, especially if he's to be a supersub for us. Letting him stay and rehab at Carrington is brilliant, and makes it a lot easier to avoid paying for morata or belotti now that we have lukaku.

8.) 12 Jul 2017 18:57:13
I wouldn't hesitate sign him up. Short term contract and greizman next year.

9.) 12 Jul 2017 19:50:14
Ken I would rather one of the younger players got a chance this season than a 36 year coming back from an Injury who will be off in the summer .

10.) 12 Jul 2017 20:25:40
He's off to LA Galaxy apparently.

11.) 12 Jul 2017 23:18:06
I understand that view jred but the squad is pretty thin on experience. I think overall last year he had what appeared to be a very positive influence in the dressing room and training pitch. Hugely respected by the younger players and his mindset appears to have rubbed off on a few and if all goes well and we are in a good position someone like him wiuld slap down any silly talk or complacency. I just think his experience and stature wiuld be a huge asset. Obvoiusly it would depend on the deal and terms and his game time expectation/ demands but i can see a lot of positives that outweigh some negatives and personally a good gout feeling about it. Hard to explain that but we all have them i'm sure.

12.) 12 Jul 2017 23:32:32
Ahem gut feeling. i'm over the gout thank God šŸ˜.



12 Jul 2017 10:54:37
Eds - a couple on here speaking about the possibility of Sanchez. Is there anything to this?

Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 12 Jul 2017 11:22:23
Lol short and sweet.

2.) 12 Jul 2017 11:31:14
Haha, that's put to bed that rumour.

3.) 12 Jul 2017 13:43:49
A bit disappointed that we aren't interested. Would hate to see him go to the Etihad. I think he's a strong player in his position and perhaps getting him would mean we don't need to sign another forward. If we sign Perisic, however, I wouldn't be too disappointed but we would still need a Forward in my opinion.

4.) 12 Jul 2017 13:49:58
Cheers Ed - just as I thought.



04 Jul 2017 10:47:41
News today that Morata may be completed by Thursday for 60mil.

Took his goal well today and looked dangerous and direct.

I thought jones looked calm and composed today - brought the ball down well under pressure a couple of times - showed good pace and kept distribution was solid and simple.

You seem bitter about a past experience there Beast ;) BTW totally agree re Sanchez.

Because he is our most naturally talented striker and needs an arm round his shoulder and coaching to fulfill his potential to be one of the world's best perhaps?

We've played two so called big teams in the league so far and have 4 points without conceding. If we keep that record up over the season I'd be happy.

People are talking as if we have not played attacking football this season. A few games - Liverpool to name one we have been conservative but we have scored 4 goals in a single game on a number of occasions and played some brilliant stuff. We've also played some guff. It's almost like form fluctuates and injuries to key creative players happens.

The negativity on here is staggering. In one season with Jose we won trophies and played significantly better football than the previous two managers. Results first then build to a more expansive game.

Finally I think it is widely accepted that Jose isn't here for the long time, do surely reinstating a winning mentality to a club that was threatening to do a Liverpool or a Utd post Babes is a great thing and surely we should be thanking Jose.

Just my thoughts anyway.

not to mention the goals against CeltA and Anderlecht in the latter stages of Europe and a debut goal in the CL this year. Young players are inconsistent and need time to mature and fulfil their potential - compare him to other players his age and he is in the top 5% in Europe in his position. What more do you want?

I totally agree AJH. I became a Utd fan because my dad was although I'm a little younger - the first football season I remember was 90/ 91 and so I have been very spoilt by the success we have had since. I remember watching a VHS recording of United 3 - 1 Blackburn where Palli scored a freekick most mornings before school when we won the league for the first time in 26 years.

I have always felt a huge affinity for the local boys we bring through and the class of 92 will always be special for me as I grew up with them.

I'm pleased with Jose at the moment, he appears to have bought into the club and I can honestly see him staying for a long time.
