Read that we have been linked to David brooks of Bournemouth, I'm from Sheffield and saw a lot of him at Sheffield Utd, great player, I'd take him and play him with Rashford instead of Lingard (already a better player in my opinion)


1.) 17 Jan 2019 12:06:25
I really don’t understand the want to move Lingard on or have him out of the side. Played a huge role in the win against spurs. He’s versatile and has great movement. Yes, there are better players in world football than Lingard, but we’ve more important areas to address.

2.) 17 Jan 2019 12:22:29
Lingard has been brilliant for us for a few years now. He reminds me a bit of Park, putting in a good shift high up the pitch, willing to fill in the gaps, great at covering out of possession and finding space when in possession. He’s certainly done more than a £50m Fred this season. I think Lingard isn’t as appreciated as he should be partly because he didn’t cost silly money with a silly name.

3.) 17 Jan 2019 12:35:18
Better than lingard? A player with knack of scoring in big games especially finals and who was one of England's better players at the world cup. Or some random guy at a low league team.

Tony V leaving at the end of the season, I'd like to see wan bassaka of palace come in to compete with Dalot for the RB position and chilwell to compete with shaw for LB.


1.) 14 Jan 2019 23:37:46
That would be the my ideal pair of signings 2smooth. Wan Bissaka has arguably been the best rb in the league this year. But being a palace boy it may be hard to prise him away. City will be all over him in the summer. I think shaw needs competition.

We need to have players fighting for each spot on the pitch. Greater competition within a squad produces higher performance levels and higher standards. Chilwell would be perfect. I actually think at this moment he’s better than shaw. I think shaw does need to improve positionally and his delivery / final ball. Hopefully that comes with more confidence and coaching.

2.) 15 Jan 2019 06:33:40
Wan Bissaka looks like a very good player and I'd happily sign him to compete with Dalot. Another worth looking at would be Ricardo Pereira at Leicester. He was mentioned last season and through the summer by a couple of people on here and Leicester did well to get him. He has been great this season and can play on the right wing too.

For left back I'd keep Ashley Young as cover for Shaw. That isn't my ideal situation as I'd prefer we went out and got another left back to compete with Shaw but I think we have other areas such like CB, RB, CM and RW which need to be addressed before left back does. I can't see us signing 6 or 7 players this summer who are in the first team squad.

3.) 15 Jan 2019 09:39:03
I see no point in having two young left backs competing for a spot. Shaw and Young for the left, and Dalot and a New right back to compete on that side would make more sense. Never quite sure why darmian has not quite made it - if you believe what you read there are some top Italian clubs chasing him, and he’s more than good enough as back up. He’s a good defender, just his distribution not quite good enough for a modern right back.

Tony V has had a great career at Utd, but you do get the sense it’s time to move on for him now for a new challenge.

4.) 15 Jan 2019 10:59:33
Both Dalot and Young are capable of playing at both RB and LB. The obvious issue with them is one is young and is learning while the question is how long can Young go on for. For me the solution is bringing in a full back who is a solid RB but who can comfortably cover LB. Then readdress the full back situation at the end of next season.

Ricardo Pereira or Cedric Soares would be good shouts. Both settled and proven EPL players. Neither would cost the earth.

For me we need a first choice CB partner for Lindelof, and a couple of midfielders. Which is likely to cost a fair amount.

I'm not so concerned by a RW, I think Lingard can be a great option there, plus we have a couple of great youngsters who could look to breakthrough over the next two seasons in Chong, Gomes and Greenwood.

5.) 15 Jan 2019 11:24:02
Park you really think City will chase Wan while they have Walker and Danilo? If I remember correctly Wan got his chance when TFM got injured at Palace, prior to that he (TFM) played quite well for them.

6.) 15 Jan 2019 12:44:24
Good shout that Shappy. Both great options and won't cost much, but then again its United so even stones cost us diamonds. Wonder what happened with Bertrand. Remember he was linked to us and he is a good option for Shaw to compete with. Are there no fullbacks in our academy?

7.) 15 Jan 2019 15:31:11
Mitchell having a great season with hearts last i read. Not seen him i don't watch as much of the Scottish league as i used to.

8.) 15 Jan 2019 20:19:58
Mitchell has been alright but defensively suspect and isn't going to make. it here - Hearts form has went off a cliff.

9.) 15 Jan 2019 20:19:43
I do mbd. I think pep doesn’t really fancy walker that much at the moment. Just my humble opinion of course but walker can be a bit of a liability. He’s got a mistake in him and is suspect defensively at times. He showed this against Chelsea when he switched off for kante’s goal. Don’t get me wrong he’s still a very good player and would walk into our side. But I think Wan Bissaka has a higher ceiling than him. Think city will be keeping tabs on him. Danilo is pretty average tbf.

10.) 15 Jan 2019 23:02:30
I've watched quite a bit of Pereira and Bassaka this season, as they've been in my dream team since the start of the season. Both are potentially very good. Bissaka definitely the better defensively, with Pereira better going forward. Personally, I think Pereira is going to be a beast of a player.

11.) 16 Jan 2019 04:04:19
Shaw, Pereira, Lindelof and Koulibaly could be a solid back 4.

12.) 16 Jan 2019 08:03:00
I forgot about pereira Stevie. He’s brilliant and great going forward.

Felt like a lose yesterday, at least it looks like they were trying, if it means they're playing for the manager i don't know, big Rom scores a fair amount of goals, just think how many he would score if he was a good finisher.


1.) 21 Oct 2018 14:33:58
He has always been a striker who needs three chances to score one. That being said he should be playing in a team where he has at least 5-6 chances a a game, every game. He is the main striker for Manchester United. At no point during Sir Alex's time as manager would he consistently be expected to feed off of scraps as he is now.

The problem with strikers is they are confidence players, so when he misses a chance what he needs more than anything is another chance soon after so he can't dwell on the missed chance for too long eroding his confidence as he over thinks his actions. Unfortunately with us at the moment he might not get another chance for 40 minutes, which is far too long and cranks up the pressure too much.

Look at his form for his country. Where he has players like Hazard and Dr Bruyne constantly giving him another chance.

2.) 21 Oct 2018 16:53:34
He really isn’t top class but neither was Andy Cole. However, I always felt Cole was like an over excited puppy, whereas I see Rom as an overworked Blackpool donkey. Having said that Shappy makes a good point, his international goal scoring record is pretty good so perhaps we need to work on our approach and try and understand how we give him the 6 chances he needs to score.
