Here's a question. If, and it's a very big if, Mourinho was to leave the club. Would anyone think of Zidane as the next coach of our team?
I take all the nonsense in the media with a pinch of salt when it comes to Pogba and Shaw falling out daily with Mourinho, but there is definitely something amiss at the moment. Hopefully it's Jose's tough love and the players pull their socks up and get on with the remainder of the season.

I do feel though that the board and senior figures will soon get tired of the Mourinho circus if results don't change.
That's where Zidane comes into it. There's a massive possibility he will lose his job at Real in the summer which is a shame as he's won the CL twice in his short managerial career. The most obvious option would be for him to join PSG but I would certainly take a gamble on him IF Jose were to go and Zidane became available.


1.) 21 Mar 2018 20:53:08
Zidane and scholes 👍👍👍 🤞👌👌👌.

2.) 21 Mar 2018 22:08:12
I'd really like this option. There are several French speaking players in the squad and I'm sure he'll quick be an inspiration to them. He seems like a decent enough guy too from the interviews I've seen.

3.) 21 Mar 2018 22:42:31
At least Zidane won't be afraid to 'butt heads' with the big boys in the team. A few ego's need reining in imo.

4.) 22 Mar 2018 12:34:04
Love Zidane as a player and would have been an honour to have him playing for united. But I’m not too sure about his managerial capabilities. I think his biggest strength actually appears to be man management of egos in that real squad, and keeping the players happy. He has a fantastic squad at his disposal. However, he does seem to know how to get the best out of the players so that is a positive. I have to disagree there beast on Zidane reining in egos. This is exactly what Jose is doing now and he is being criticised so what makes Zidane doing it any different? I’m not advocating what Jose does as I do not believe he is right for us. But isn’t it a bit ridiculous to want Zidane to butt head
s with the egos in the squad when Jose is doing the same but yet criticised for it?

5.) 22 Mar 2018 16:53:19
Park - it was a poor joke based on what was one of the most remarkable things witnessed during a game. World Cup Final 2006, Zidane 'Head Butting' Materazzi in the chest.

6.) 22 Mar 2018 17:30:34
Haha my mistake beastie didn’t notice that one.



30 Jan 2018 21:01:30
Daley Blind could be off to Roma. Class act if you ask me, just isn't quite at the level needed at United. He's the one Van Gaal signing I wanted to see workout.


1.) 30 Jan 2018 22:02:21
I like Blind excellent passer and can play in a variety of positions. Clever tactically too just his lack of pace that let's him down. Be sad to see him go.

2.) 30 Jan 2018 22:09:01
Sorry but I disagree, incredibly mediocre who just isn’t cut out for this league.

3.) 30 Jan 2018 22:23:58
Good pro always gives 100% will do well elsewhere and I'm not sure it's true as we don't have a replacement but regardless he is not a ideal fit for us or the epl in general due to his lack of pace.

4.) 31 Jan 2018 06:35:48
Anyone thinks Blind can replace Carrick? Appreciate opinions. Thanks 🙏.

5.) 31 Jan 2018 07:14:01
Blind has very good passing ability and seems to have a very good understanding of the game. However, I don't think he could replace Carrick.

Physically, Blind would struggle against teams that press high as he isn't quick enough not does he have the strength to hold people off. Carrick isn't the quickest but because of his awareness and ability to shield the ball is an excellent passing central midfielder.

If we have a good offer for Blind I'd say take it. We still have 5 CB's if he leaves and Shaw, Young, Darmian (doesn't look like he is leaving this window) and Rojo can all play left back. Next season we should have TFM back and he can fill a utility role in the squad.

6.) 31 Jan 2018 08:25:09
Thanks RJ for opinion. So if Blind can’t replace Carrick who then can we buy or any younger players?
Feel free to comment anyone. Thanks.

7.) 31 Jan 2018 10:47:57
Mediocre player. certainly not good enough for that central midfield area if we have aspirations of winning the Premiership and the champions League. I would be going for the Lazio midfielder Savic.

8.) 31 Jan 2018 12:51:55
Only a few players can replace Carrick 666. I think Weigl is perfect and would love us to sign him. Otherwise you have Jorginho and of course Kroos. Tielemens is a left field option always been impressed with him and also Dendoncker. I would prefer we went for an engine in midfield as I think it would compliment pogba and matic better. A Vidal/ Kante would be perfect. Or the other option is go for more creativity like city do with De Bruyne and silva. Milinkovic Savic or Thiago alacantara would be perfect. I think Milinkovic Savic is the one we must move heaven and earth for. Interesting to see what we do.



14 Jul 2017 19:11:12
Wesley Sneijder's been released by Galatasaray. Let the rumours commence.


1.) 14 Jul 2017 20:44:02
Exactly the type of player we need.

2.) 14 Jul 2017 22:03:48
6 years ago.



05 Jul 2017 10:43:25
Apparently Inter have rejected our recent bid of £40mil for Perisic.


1.) 05 Jul 2017 11:36:59
Time to walk away, good player but this deal is dragging on now and the cost is starting to go beyond what the player is worth.

2.) 05 Jul 2017 12:01:39
Unfortunately we are going to pay over the odds for any player because as ed002 has said teams see us as daft enough to pay these prices.

3.) 05 Jul 2017 12:08:44
We have set a precedents since SAF left for being stupid. Happening with Morata too - £80m is a joke and they've turned down £70m.

4.) 05 Jul 2017 12:23:00
Really fresh do you believe that?

5.) 05 Jul 2017 12:34:38
How do you mean Ken?

6.) 05 Jul 2017 13:20:57
What does it matter fresh? Don't worry about the money side. None of us have a clue about it. If that's the valuation, so be it.

7.) 05 Jul 2017 14:54:10
All prices quoted in the media are probably over inflated as it helps to sell papers or get hits. I doubt we are currently that high with our offer.

8.) 05 Jul 2017 14:57:02
It matters if it means we don't have enough for other players we need. I don't know if this is the case or not. If it doesn't affect other signings I couldn't care less what we pay. i'm assuming the owners know how much we can afford to spend.

9.) 05 Jul 2017 16:52:25
Not privvy to any info regarding madrid- man utd negotiations, but surely if they are playing hard ball they must realise they can get stung with big numbers if they go for DDG?

{Ed002's Note - It is of no relevance to what is being discussed with any other players.}

10.) 05 Jul 2017 17:29:42
This is crazy money for Morata.

11.) 05 Jul 2017 17:58:07
Your last line sums it up perfectly RWWD.

12.) 05 Jul 2017 17:59:10
I take it ed002 that real madrid have a valuation for the player and United have to match that or look for another target.

{Ed002's Note - OK if that is what you think.}



15 May 2017 18:45:58
Ed's I've heard today that we have agreed a deal for Brozovic at Inter. Back when all reports were saying Jose had gone to Croatia to tie up a deal for Perisic. Could it be that it was actually Brozovic?
Any truth in it?


1.) 15 May 2017 22:41:28
It's mentioned that he is a possible target.

2.) 16 May 2017 08:58:02
Is there an updated sharkopod? The one i last saw was one before the January transfer window talking about bastian n jose fonte!

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

I'd love to know how many points/ games Mata and Fellaini have won us over the last few seasons.


1.) 27 Nov 2018 23:05:52
I don't know but fair play to fellani, he gets stuck in and looks like he actually cares and wants to win, if some of the others had that in their locker it would be half the battle.

2.) 28 Nov 2018 08:03:56
Seems half the player without his old hair style though.

3.) 28 Nov 2018 09:56:37
Fellaini : love him or hate he does what he is sent out to do. Jones had a good game last night but until the changes we look ed the same of late- everyone playing on or to the left, getting more narrow through the mid, taking 2-3 extra touches and lacking confidence moving forward. Rashford seems to have lost his confidence but also not sure what he is, winger striker? Lukaku = it just isn't working at the moment and his touch? We played a relatively weak team by cl standards and scraped through but we need to urgently up our game if we want to progress in the latter stages andd forget top 4 in epl if we dont.



29 Oct 2018 19:13:44
If Jose did have £100m to spend in January, who would you all want him to go for. Realistically you're not getting any decent deals in jan but would like to know peoples preferred targets. I think we need a striker. An out and out goal scorer like Icardi or Cavarni.


1.) 29 Oct 2018 20:17:44
Would get in Alderweireld and Pulisic, maybe over £100m but offload a few fringe players.

2.) 29 Oct 2018 20:40:36
There's probably 3-4 positions that need strengthening, but it's hard to expect any shrewd signings available in January. Crying out for a commanding centre back but the market for them is ridiculously inflated. Maybe if Dalot is getting in the team more by January we won't need a right back. Matic can't play games in quick succession anymore, was getting run ragged by Sigurdsson yesterday after 10 minutes. I'd personally love to see Ndombele but would expect that's pretty much impossible in January. We still need a right winger, maybe this is one area where we might be able to do something. Nicolas Pepe is having a great season, someone like Zaha perhaps if we're desperate. I agree we definitely need a striker, an all round number 9. Lukaku is great when he's a luxury player like for Belgium when he isn't required for retaining the ball and developing the play.

3.) 29 Oct 2018 20:44:47
Alderweireld, a striker and a Right winger. Would love to see Vardy and someone like Malcolm (as he is surplus to requirements at Barca) .

No Pulisic as i don't have any kind of faith in Dortmund players.

4.) 29 Oct 2018 21:14:34
Alderweireld or skriniar and a rw winger of either zaha, Dembele or Malcom. Skriniar will be very expensive and difficult to sign in January, but still yet to sign a contract. The dream would be koulibaly. Top 3 cb in the world at the moment. Solid as a rock but can also play. Will cost a fortune and most likely he would be more inclined to join sarri at Chelsea.

I absolutely love zaha. He was brilliant against arsenal yesterday, always a threat and so difficult to stop when he’s on form. Equally I would be happy with either Malcom or Dembele. Malcom just hasn’t had a sniff. Doesn’t mean he is a bad player. But think he would be very exciting alongside our other attackers. Zaha is premier league proven so he tips it for me. I’m tempted to say a striker but I would like to see rashford and Sanchez given a chance to play up front. Think Sanchez could cause havoc with his movement. Also his best season was playing through the middle for arsenal. Lukaku needs to shed some weight and fight for his place. He has a tall ask on his hands at this current moment.

The frustrating thing is why didn’t the board back Jose with this ‘spree’ in the summer. It reeks of too little too late for me. Prices will be way more inflated in January as clubs will know we are desperate. Lack of planning again has failed us. Throwing money around paying over the odds for players in a panic because we have not got a proper football man upstairs to identify and endorse a criteria of player that united should be looking to bring to the club. Hopefully a couple of the aforementioned players can be signed as I think they would fit in very nicely and take us up a level.

5.) 29 Oct 2018 21:26:32
I think the genius of ed Woodward knows no bounds. With what's a usually inflated price window coming up tell everyone what you have to spend. And then also don't bother to look at the going rate of players. Last January VvD cost £75m. Laporte cost £60m. Just what are we supposed to get for £100m? Not too top class players. Maybe should've spent in the summer Ed and saved a lot of mess.

6.) 29 Oct 2018 21:44:28
Hundred percent with you mort. I feel exactly the same. Ridiculous to be honest. Won’t be able to secure a winger and cb for 100m.

7.) 29 Oct 2018 21:53:43
Maybe he’ll spend it all on Zaha.

8.) 29 Oct 2018 22:00:55
Bring Rooney Ibrahimovic and Schweinsteiger back.

9.) 29 Oct 2018 22:48:48
Douglas costa and alderweireld.

10.) 30 Oct 2018 01:34:32
Offer the lot for Kante.

11.) 30 Oct 2018 09:58:40
Samu Castillejo and Kalidou Koulibaly.

12.) 30 Oct 2018 11:46:03
I will play CB for a chippy tea and a few pints.

13.) 30 Oct 2018 12:15:14
That would make sense if Woodward had come out and said we have £100m to spend, whereas the press have just realised we hardly spent anything in summer and still have money to spend, nobody is saying it will be in January or that anyone from the club has said it. That time of year already when people believe all they read?

{Ed002's Note - What is Woodward supposed to have said about £100M to spend?}

14.) 30 Oct 2018 15:00:49
dont know what's in the kitty and what'll hapeen in the jan window, but a good bit of business could be getting £500k allegedly a week off the wage bill.



01 Sep 2018 09:51:33
Has anyone seen Dalot's debut for the u23s?
Him and Chong look a very tasty prospect down the right.


1.) 01 Sep 2018 10:18:31
Missed it due to work, mate. Did Dalot manage the full 90 minutes?

2.) 01 Sep 2018 10:45:28
He managed about 80 minites and was good at crosses which we clearly lack in our play.

3.) 01 Sep 2018 11:07:37
No, came off with 10 mins to go. Looked good though. He was cutting back on his left which worried me a bit then he whipped in a great cross with his right. Looks good with both feet and can beat a man. Very promising.

4.) 01 Sep 2018 12:14:23
Good job. Cheers, lads.

5.) 01 Sep 2018 13:21:19
No, 78 mins.

6.) 01 Sep 2018 13:27:00
Dalot was wanted by Real Juventus Barcelona Psg and Chelsea . Just from watching him in the u23 I think Jose is right about him being best in Europe for his age -Tony V is toast 😆😆.

7.) 01 Sep 2018 15:28:49
Tasty. Hmmm. Don't tell to Suarez.

8.) 01 Sep 2018 17:28:00
Looks strong for his age. Let's hope he kicks on and takes his chance when he gets it.



08 Aug 2018 12:10:27
Forget the transfer market for now. Either we get 2 in or we don't. Let's focus on what we do have.
We've got our first match on Friday evening and no one seems to be looking forward to it. I'm going for a sound 3-0 win with a Sanchez brace and Mata getting the other. I couldn't care less whether that's with any of Alderweireld, Maguire, Mina, Willian, Dembele, Perisic or Pulisic in the team.
Glory Glory Man Utd!


{Ed0333's Note - great post mate. Que Sera sera. You can’t do anything about what you have no control sit back and watch the drama and entertainment on the pitch unfold.

3.) 08 Aug 2018 12:41:17
Thankyou 2Toms.

Some of the posts on here are bordering on craziness.48 hours left, then the crazy can settle down and we can start getting behind the squad again.

Batten down the hatches, it's going to be a bumpy landing.

4.) 08 Aug 2018 12:42:28
Good post. A fine win would really blow away the doom and gloom here!

5.) 08 Aug 2018 12:44:47
Agreed mate. Excited for the season to start. We have already got fred the red and gal gadot. The only thing i hope is mourinho lasts the whole season without any meltdown.
Has been a difficult window and i am still not happy with the team so far but there is still a day left.
Expectations for this season are obviously low but hopefully we give a good account of ourselves in the league and cl.

6.) 08 Aug 2018 12:50:29
If we signed anyone now I don't think they could be registered time anyway.

7.) 08 Aug 2018 13:02:54
If we'd signed gad galot i'd be more cheerful.

8.) 08 Aug 2018 13:10:39
Spot on 2toms. We all have ideas of how to improve the squad, Just like Jose does. I would just like him to be the Jose from Porto or Inter who out coached his rivals rather than out spend them.

9.) 08 Aug 2018 13:15:27
If sanchez and Pogba play to their full potential, I don't actually think we need anyone else.

Sure, we could improve in several areas, but with those two on fire, providing concistent chances to lukaku, we should still very much be in the mix in the league.

The worry is that if they don't consistently perform at the top of their game, we're going to struggle, and so far I have no reason to expect that they will, but I have plenty of hope.

10.) 08 Aug 2018 13:44:28
I'm going 2-1. Maguire to score 2.

11.) 08 Aug 2018 14:00:32
😂 mort!

I predict 2-1 utd, leicester score first.

12.) 08 Aug 2018 12:40:39
Ive learnt my lesson ed0333, I used to spend hours scrolling through rumour sites, football apps and social media trying to pick the bones out of the gossip when really 95% of what is being reported is garbage. I enjoy this site for all the different opinions and the info from the Ed’s but even this is starting to grate as the same questions and debates get repeated over and over. There’s no doubt we need to improve, Mourinho plays unattractive football, we have 2 wingers as full backs and so on and so forth, but I can’t change a thing so I’m going to embrace the season ahead and enjoy the wins, sulk when we lose and get frustrated with the draws. Bring on Leicester Friday.

{Ed0333's Note - I applaud your attitude mate. I’m crestfallen as I want us to sign Fekir and I know it my head it won’t happen but the heart wants what the heart wants...but I’ll just be happy with what we have and see what the season brings. I must say all of a sudden out of nowhere Chelsea are looking sexy.



25 Jul 2018 21:39:56
Getting away from all the doom and gloom that seems to be hanging over our club. It's really refreshing to hear the players talk so respectfully about Michael Carrick.
Remember when Pogba scored his 2 goals against City, he said it was Carrick who pulled him up at half time to give him advice. When to make his runs into the box.
A. Pereira has also been speaking about how Carrick coaches and directs the players in training. I would like to think it works well with Jose's hard line approach, Carrick and McKenna playing good cop with the players.
Bit early now but he could turn out to be a candidate for the top job in a few years.


1.) 25 Jul 2018 21:49:22
Ive seen plenty of clips from the tour the atmosphere between them all looks great.

2.) 25 Jul 2018 22:04:11
I agree, it’s a shame he is so underrated.

3.) 25 Jul 2018 22:18:07
I also think McKenna I a very astute addition to the coaching team.

4.) 25 Jul 2018 23:04:35
Agreed Ken, looks like a pretty happy camp from what I’ve seen. Bring the enthusiasm of Lingard and Pogba into the mix and we should have a very good team spirit before the season kicks off.
Redman, all the youth players rave about his training. Really good addition to the coaching staff.

See it’s not all doom and gloom at the club. 2 signings in this window and we’ll all be a bit more relaxed about the season ahead. In Jose ‘the miserable p###k we trust.

IF this is true, then imagine potentially throwing your chance at United away just to side with the biggest clown in the dressing room.
Andreas Perreira has been so vocal about this being his chance and wanting to make it work at United. What a shame it’d be if he is sidling up to Pogba and pissing the manager off. Same could be said for Bailly. Neither will be given the chance at a bigger club than United.

Who would be the preferred replacement for everyone? I’m seeing a lot on here saying Zidane would be an awful choice.
Personally I’d like to see him replace Mourinho. Yeah he had an outstanding team at his disposal but to win 3 CL on the spin is no mean feat. He would command respect straight away from the players and he is a class act.

hendonred, I’d rather have a mediocre Ander Herrera for 5 games than a decent Pogba for 1/ 5 games.
He’s not a young kid either. My 14 year old daughter is a young kid who uses Instagram etc. He is a grown man who has a very healthy salary. He should keep his mouth shut until he moves on. He owes that much to the fans and football club if not Jose and his teammates.

scholes_18_18, have you seen much of SMS? Average player since the middle of last season. He had a bit of a purple patch with Lazio where he was scoring and all his tricks and flicks were coming off. That’s all stopped and he looks very average. Just my opinion but he certainly wouldn’t be the answer if we sold Pogba.
