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.}

With Lukaku seemingly off to Serie A, who would everyone's choice be for a no.9 next season.
I would've loved to see Jovic before his move to Real. Piatek is another but will be difficult with him only signing for Milan in Jan.
I'd like to see an out and out number 9, a Lewandowski type who would get us 20-25 goals a season.


1.) 12 Jun 2019 20:10:27

{Ed025's Note - your having a giraffe mulam..

2.) 12 Jun 2019 20:19:45
Timo Werner, good link up play, can drift wide so can interchange with Rashford, Martial, James. Good finisher and only 23.

3.) 12 Jun 2019 20:21:27
Rashford or martial, greenwood as backup. This is provided we get another wide player in along with james and sanchez is unable to find another club.

4.) 12 Jun 2019 20:35:45
Andrea Belotti, Patrik Schick or Inaki Williams? Not suggesting they're available or were interested just chucking some names out there.

5.) 12 Jun 2019 22:27:56
Alexis Sanchez.

6.) 12 Jun 2019 22:41:07
Piatek would be my pick. He’s quality and made for the league. He’s better on the ball than Lukaku and his hold up play is better. There are doubts he may be a one season wonder but I think there is talent there to suggest otherwise. I’m a big fan Werner and surprisingly I would take a punt on Moussa Dembele. Always liked him when he was at Celtic and Fulham.

7.) 13 Jun 2019 06:14:50
Dembele and Piatek are really good talents Park.
If Griezmann was to come, he would be a good option for 4-5 years.

8.) 13 Jun 2019 06:56:00
Dembele for me.

9.) 13 Jun 2019 07:52:56
I think there’s a real lack of quality forwards available.

Saw a link to Ben Yedder the other day, I’d like to see that happen.

10.) 14 Jun 2019 06:16:27
Dembele, Williams, Belotti, Werner, Icardi. Would've loved Jovic or Piatek as I think they are really suited for the prem but have both been snapped up.



11 Jun 2019 18:18:40
Just seen an incredible stat ( if true, I haven't checked )
Since Ronaldo left, 10 years ago, our no.7's have scored a combined total of 15 PL goals. Shocking stat when you consider the players to wear it.


1.) 11 Jun 2019 19:37:25
Another interesting stat.

We haven’t signed an English player for 5 years.

It doesn’t seem that long ago the Neville’s, Butt, Scholes and Beckham were 5 of the England 11.

2.) 11 Jun 2019 20:12:11
Amazingly we didn’t sign any of those English players either.

3.) 11 Jun 2019 21:18:25
Danny 😂😂 nice.

4.) 11 Jun 2019 21:34:20
Lee grant.

5.) 11 Jun 2019 21:55:06
Where is lee grant from?

6.) 12 Jun 2019 08:44:00
Sorry, should have said outfield players.



11 May 2019 12:15:52
Ander Herrera is replaceable. Decent enough player who left everything out on the pitch. The outcry I've seen though is ridiculous, he made the decision to leave. All this nonsense about United in his heart etc. he's a Spanish lad who would give 100% to which ever team he pulls the shirt on for, simple as that. Likeable bloke though.


1.) 11 May 2019 12:35:37
For me the concern is that he is one of only a handful of first team players who appears to have the right mentality.

With a squad devoid of hard workers with that give all mentality, losing one of the few who had it does feel like a blow.

Certainly, from a talent view Herrera can be replaced. However, most would agree our most pressing need with our squad isn't talent, but players with the right attitude. Ander was one of those, losing him means we have one less in the squad.

2.) 11 May 2019 12:39:59
Replacing the player isn't a problem.

The problem is that we no longer have an exciting future proposition as a club to retain our better players.

3.) 11 May 2019 12:46:44
Reqlly sad to se ehim leave. I wouldve got rid of everyone bar DeGeq before him. He will be a huge loss.

4.) 11 May 2019 13:08:54
Can't say I'm bothered that Herrera is leaving. So what that he runs around a bit?

Not good enough quality to help us win trophies.

5.) 11 May 2019 13:51:53
He has more heart then 90 percent of players in the team.

6.) 11 May 2019 14:05:17
Shappy, Ole needs to rebuild this squad from top to bottom. That means buying/ promoting players and instilling that correct attitude.
You need to remember though, for all his badge kissing and hard running, he’s still leaving for more money. He didn’t sign a new contract and has decided to move on.
I won’t be sad or pleased to see him go. All I think is he’s replaceable both in terms of desire and most certainly in quality.

7.) 11 May 2019 14:29:07
2toms, The money may well have been a factor, or the club not offering him a deal until he had less than 6 months left might have left him feeling undervalued.

Ole does need to rebuild, and an older head with the right attitude would have been useful as a leader in the dressing room. Ander would have been perfect in that regard.

But it isn't to be. So we move on.



06 May 2019 16:35:05
What's everyone's thoughts on the Dybala rumours?
To me it smacks of Woodward. Quality player but not what we need. We'd be spending £70-80 million on the wrong position.


1.) 06 May 2019 17:13:09
Will no doubt happen at the expense of bettering the side where it’s truly needed - centre back and restructuring the right hand side.

Dybala is great but is a luxury, and you don’t start a rebuild with a luxury.

2.) 06 May 2019 17:50:41
Fresh! Have you seen what Woodward has been doing since SAF? Luxury signings are his thing. I like Dybala but we all know he shouldn’t be a priority, but you can’t trust Woodward to turn down such a deal if it pops up.

3.) 06 May 2019 18:09:01
Because he never learns and thinks a flash signing is all that's needed. He needs someone to sit him down and explain exactly how football works or to just say Take my advice, and a pistol, and go behind that tent, and blow out what's left of your brains.

4.) 06 May 2019 18:30:53
We need to sign atleast one amongst Sancho, Felix, Nicolas Pepe or Bergwin to play on the left or right side.
Pace can always hurt teams.

Felix on the left and Sancho on the right would be terrific for years to come.
But lack of Champions League could very much hurt us.

5.) 06 May 2019 17:20:51
Hard to comment when we don't really know the system and tactics we'll be utilise next season. Dybala as a false 9 in the 4-3-3 we deployed under Ole in early 2019 has potential on paper.

Moreover, a key issue this summer will obviously be Pogba. Will any team have the funds to stump up what we ask for - I doubt it. Some deal involving Pogba and Dybala may be the best outcome for all parties.



04 May 2019 19:28:15
One option for RW for me would be Federico Chiesa. Reminds me a bit of Kanchelskis. Head down, hunched shoulders with just one thing in mind, beat your man and head for goal.


1.) 04 May 2019 21:35:15
Juve bound.

2.) 04 May 2019 22:26:05
Lozano is Napoli bound aswell by the looks of it. Juve would be stacked on the right with Costa, Bernardeschi and Chiesa.

3.) 05 May 2019 07:39:23
Costa is coming to us isn’t he?

4.) 05 May 2019 11:56:12
Costa is available to the first sucker to phone up. Woodwards already writing the cheque for 70 million.

Ed002, yeah if he’s Pogba’s replacement then great. I still think we’d need another midfielder on top of Tielemans or Bruno Fernandes if Pogba was to leave.
I’d like us to go for Doucouré from Watford.


{Ed002's Note - 12 a side next year then?}

I think we probably dodged a bullet with Griezmann a couple of summers ago. I get the feeling if he had come then he’d just be another on our list of players to offload this summer. For all his goals, his attitude stinks. The whole documentary thing last summer now this announcement yesterday, he’s another circus act who thinks he’s above playing football.

09 May 2019 08:13:00
Caolan_2 that all sounds lovely but why would Dybala coming in change the attitude of Martial and the decision making of Rashford.
This is the type of signing we should be looking at next summer if we can get the basics right next season. It would be like dumping Mesut Ozil in our failing team and thinking he’ll sort the mess out. He’s a luxury player who doesn’t really nail down a position with either Juve or Argentina.
Of course, I’d love to have these words rammed down my throat in 12 months time but there’s a lot more to be done than an £85 million no.10.

Shappy, you have some very valid points and get them across well at times. Sometimes though, things are black and white. Stats don’t tell the whole story and that’s what (I think) sometimes gets under people’s skin on hear. You can over analyse things too much like the Wan Bissaka game for the u21s. He had a poor game, no stats would convince me otherwise because I watched the game.

Nothing mort, he’s not really done anything that doesn’t normally go on on a lads holiday. It’s cringey and really embarrassing but that’s it. No harm done.
The saddest part of all this is we live in a time where the British media want to hang our players for having a tattoo or smoke a cigarette and these idiots haven’t got the know how or sense to keep their life’s low key and this fool Lingard has even filmed and posted it himself. Just shows how thick and oigheaded he is.

I seem to remember Ferdinand, Lampard and Kieron Dyer filming themselves shagging someone back in the day. Lingard filmed his mate pretending to shag a pillow. You can’t sack him for that.
He’s an immature twit but that’s about it. If anything he, and others on social media are making it uncool to be a professional footballer nowadays.

Shappy, well written article although I still don’t think he had a very good game at all. Clarke-Salter and Tomori looked out most solid defenders throughout the match.
Just an off game for the lad that shouldn’t reflect on how good he’s been for Palace this season.
