We may have beaten the League leaders 2-0 but my roast carrots were overlooked and I blame Fellaini. He's a disgrace.


1.) 16 Apr 2017 20:28:56
Rumours Ed? I could live with Others but Rumours?

{Ed004's Note - This is just hearsay until more sources confirm it}

2.) 16 Apr 2017 21:06:15
De Gea made no saves that is not good enough. Get rid.

3.) 16 Apr 2017 21:31:26
I have several witnesses to the carrot issue, but no video ref.

4.) 17 Apr 2017 09:37:29
I can confirm Bond Tony's carrots was burnt to cinders.



25 May 2016 12:35:44
I've heard that Rooney is not opposed to a move back to Everton as part of the Stones deal, seems like a great idea to me.


1.) 25 May 2016 13:16:05
And who is going to pay his wages at Everton?

2.) 25 May 2016 13:35:45
Absolutely ridicules.

3.) 25 May 2016 13:57:06
Cant see it, pus I think he will want to get the goalscoring record - 18 months from now maybe.

4.) 25 May 2016 14:26:07
My opinion, great idea, although the wages will be an issue?

Could we not subsidise Rooneys wage along side Everton?

5.) 25 May 2016 14:54:25
Yes Ronnie, let's pay huge wages for someone who no longer plays for us. Great logic?

6.) 25 May 2016 15:00:23
Farha Moshiri?

7.) 25 May 2016 15:06:53
I cannot see that happening in a million years but if Everton can be rumoured to be interested in paying £40million for Joe Hart then they obviously have some money in the club after being brought?

Still, it's silly season now so a nice rumour to get the ball rolling early doors I suppose. If Jose does come in I fully expect the media to link us with Courtois when DDG moves to Real which they will report and we will also get linked to Hazard at some point despite his supposed fall out with Jose.

8.) 25 May 2016 15:55:34
Mmmmm can't see it Tony😁.

9.) 25 May 2016 16:07:59
It's the club he supports, he has more money than he can spend already, he may not be first choice next year, it makes perfect sense to me,

10.) 25 May 2016 16:57:43
People do realise Rooney is only on £150K basic don't they? When he signed his new deal he got insane on target bonuses but I don't see why a similar thing couldn't be worked out at Everton.

I'm sure the likes of Lukaku are on £100K+.

11.) 25 May 2016 17:14:41
". only on 150K basic. "


12.) 25 May 2016 17:56:06
You sure you have a big enough fishing rod there AJH 😂.

13.) 25 May 2016 23:57:46
For the life of me I will never understand the Rooney haters that live on these message boards. Game in game out he's one of our best players and has been for years. For the better part of half a decade there has been a vocal portion of United supporters who seemingly only look at total goals as a judgement on Rooneys contributions. Shameful really but I get satisfaction knowing that for five or six years they've been complaining about Rooney and for just as long they've been proven wrong over and over again. Just embarrassing to have to see these posts all the time.



10 Sep 2015 12:55:25
Anybody seen the Times this morning? It alleged some senior players went to see LVG to express concerns about his training methods and rigidity. They want more freedom to express themselves. It appears he did not take the feedback well. If true, very interesting.


1.) 10 Sep 2015 15:04:56
Carrick and Rooney apparently were the ones due to them having captaincy and vice-captaincy. Apparently they were ignored.

The general consensus is that they players want to play more attacking, expansive football and LVG won't let them. They are also displeased at how Rafael was treated and the treatment of the Spanish players in the team.

If this unrest and falling out goes on for long I can see him gone by next summer. I hope he is while Pep and Klopp should be available.

2.) 10 Sep 2015 14:51:27
I think it is a load of rollocks personally.

3.) 10 Sep 2015 15:27:37
It was only a matter of time before players voiced there opinions, I hope LVG and his stubborness doesn't make it personal against them.

4.) 10 Sep 2015 16:19:06
Rooney has just gone up in my estimations.

5.) 10 Sep 2015 16:31:32
I don't think this is true. If it is don't expect Rooney or Carrick to start on saturday. LVG dropped Rivaldo just for asking to play in a more central role, so I can't imagine holding too much sentiment for Rooney or Carrick. Having said that though I think its just tabloid nonsense trying to stir thing up. I doubt the players would question his tactics, he is the manager and its not as if we are struggling massively, the play can be dull, but I think it will improve, fans and players alike need to have patience.

6.) 10 Sep 2015 17:18:56
There is a way of speaking to the manager and I'm sure if there were any concerns it would be done between the captain/vice captain with LVG and not leaked to the media.

If there were some discussions that somehow got out then the media are dramatising as usual just to sell papers. A whiff of anything and most of the rags jump on it.

We all know LVG doesn't take too kindly to players going above their stations. Maybe the Eds can shed some light on it if there is anything at all?

7.) 10 Sep 2015 19:26:32
Hang on, it was in a paper, therefore it's true? Can I just ask every single person on here how reading the papers over the transfer window worked out? They know f all! Pinch of salt I'd say with this story too, probably 1% truth, 99% horse shizzle.

8.) 11 Sep 2015 12:07:14
Senior players talking to the manager! Whatever next.
Surely this is a good thing, the manager talking with senior players about training, etc.
Just the newspapers trying to turn it into a scandal.



06 Sep 2015 10:07:21
Saw an interesting stat this morning that we have signed 4 of the 5 most expensive teenagers ever. Martial, Shaw, Anderson, and Rooney. I think Shaw will prove an astute investment, we have had our money's worth out of Wayne, and sadly Anderson didn't work out. The same article also suggested that Chelsea tried to hijack the Martial move by matching the ridiculous fee. not sure whether that is a sign of his potential or desperation on Chelsea's part.

Reflecting on the window we did some good business and addressed some key areas but rumours in the press suggesting we were pursuing Bale, Ramos, Benzema, Varane, and Muller, all without success are both encouraging and disheartening. Encouraging that we are prepared to bid big for world stars, disheartening that we didn't get any of them and instead spent a enormous amount of money on a 19 year old. let's hope he is more a Ronaldo than a Bellion.


{Ed002's Note - The article is incorrect. Martial was discussed between Monaco and Chelsea when loan players were being negotiated some weeks ago - and Chelsea would have been willing to pay €20M - but the asking price was an astonishing €50M - there was no way Chelsea would pay that for him.}

1.) 07 Sep 2015 00:13:55
Tee hee. I love how frank Ed002 is. Huge respect. I mean really, who would be mad enough to spend €50m on an unproven teenager???

2.) 07 Sep 2015 09:44:57
A team who has funds to spend and a feeling the player could go on to be worth even more than that? Bit of a gamble but we have the funds to work with so all good.

3.) 08 Sep 2015 06:27:03
GDS, did you not know that it is TeddyShezs money that the club are spending?



26 Jun 2014 20:14:20
TV now also reporting the Shaw medical. Go Ed!


1.) Yeah tv saying fee agreed, with medical to be arranged. Come on united this is more like it.
Very happy with the herrera deal and now with shaw seemingly imminent. Just a quality cb and wide player and i'd settle with that. A second cm if i'm been greedy :)

2.) Ed Woodward has been a disaster in the past, but if he can pull off Herrera and Shaw in two days, credit where it's due.

3.) A fantastic couple of days Seems David May was right :) in a perfect world we would wrap the week up with James Rodriguez and Mats Hummels and then I think we would stand a very good chance of winning the title next season.

4.) Agree with u domi b. if we could get someone like robben and hummels that would be class. Would finish in top 4 wiv 2 more signings

5.) 26 Jun 2014 20:37:40
Ed if you have a sec, do you know whether or not we have actually agreed a fee with southampton now? SSN reporting it on tv as well as details of a medical tomorow but we all know how unreliable these 'sly sources' can be.

{Ed002's Note - A fee has been agreed for the club to be able to talk with the player himself and try to finalise a deal - perhaps a couple of days and we will know.}

A big plus for me was in no games we have continued used attacking right up to the end. No trying to lock the game down, no defensive tactics, we continued to attack and that's the way I like to see us play.

There will be games where we need to hold. 1-0 lead but in these 2 games we have seen what happens when we go for it. Long may it continue.

Do s this signal a change in Jose's safety first mentality? Has that been overstated? I thought his comments today post game were illuminating and positive. I ccross my fingers he is understanding how United work and has bought in. We shall see.


1.) 19 Aug 2017 17:50:00
No games? Both games obvs. Fot fungers.

2.) 19 Aug 2017 17:58:51
Allo allo.

3.) 19 Aug 2017 19:54:35
8 goals 2 clean sheets should keep the natives happy for another week.

4.) 19 Aug 2017 20:17:43
What pleases me is not only seeing Rom and Matic start so well but seeing Jones, Mata, Rash, Pogba, Miki, players with obvious talent perform like we know they can, like some of us has said in the past getting the current crop to perform is as important as new faces all the time, hats off to them all so far this season, even Fellaini and Martial with great attitudes off the bench.

5.) 19 Aug 2017 21:17:34
There is massive potential in the squad the main objective was always going to be getting the players we all ready had playing to the level they are capable of .

6.) 19 Aug 2017 23:42:09
Exactly, jred. I know it's only two games in, against weak opposition, but I still think this squad is more than capable of competing for the premiership. I didn't have us in the top 4 last season, but with Miki and Pogba like two new players, and maybe Shaw getting back to his best, there's no excuses this year.

7.) 20 Aug 2017 06:05:02
I agree pal also the other aren' a massive step up.
Is that Chelsea squad really as good as people make out?

8.) 20 Aug 2017 13:06:57
Very shallow looking to me, mate. That's not to say they won't do what Chelsea normally do, and buy big with time running out. City are scary looking in attack, but then I think we look pretty potent as well. Our defence is certainly stronger. Same applies to Liverpool and Arsenal. In fact, in the top 5, considering other fans seem to think our defence is shaky, I'd only see Spurs has being as strong in that department. What's happened to rock solid defences in our top teams?



17 Aug 2017 19:02:23
Ok, sorry to be a bore but I posted the predictions competition link earlier today but it's already a way down the page. 2 weeks left to enter, scroll down for the link.

Thanks AJH

I will do it after the window closes or after we make a notable signing.

Last day will be Sep 1sr, then it will get locked down.

3.) 18 Aug 2017 08:38:08
I think we should be allowed to change before transfer window closes. 😊.

not long left until the window closes so not long left to enter my predictions competition for this season.
so far we have had 98 entries which is quite low so perhaps some of you are keeping your powder dry but don’t forget to do it.

1.) 17 Aug 2017 13:06:23
Tony, wish I waited till the end of the transfer window before putting in my predictions. I think Mourinho still has a surprise buy in store for us and I'm hoping it will be a game changer. One can only dream.



16 Aug 2017 21:37:14
Transfer fees are now completely out of control. £45M for Sigurdsson, over £50M for Kyle Walker and now Leicester want £40M for Drinkwater, to name just a few.

Given what we are seeing we have done well to nail down the 3 we have bought even if 2 of the prices were high. However, Lukaku is a proven EPL goal scorer and we have all see the class of Matic.

My issue is the ridiculous prices being paid for 'run of the mill' players. Andre Gray went to Watford for over £18M and Leeds are allegedly asking for £20M for Chris Wood for whom the phrase run of the mill is something of a compliment. I'm start no to understand why some fans are turning to non-league and going back to basics, the money being splashed about today is sickening. That is all.


1.) 16 Aug 2017 22:11:42
Tony I agree with this post to an extent. I hate transfer fees with a real passion. I would rather see player trades and draft picks any day of the week than let the elite buy more to keep the little guy down.

Essentially the 1million pound player has become the 20million pound player overnight but let's not forget United have had a big part to play in this.

2.) 16 Aug 2017 22:58:20
The more money in the game, the bigger the transfer fees. Lukaku cost us about 13.6% of our annual turnover. Vernon was apparently 20%+, Ferdinand and Pogba just under 20%, Rooney 16.5%. Zidane was 54% of RM's income in 2001, which is a good deal more than PSG are paying for Neymar, at closer to 40%. Tevez was 52% of City's. C. Ronaldo to RM was 23%. It sounds ridiculous perhaps, but the ratios don't seem to have changed much.

{Ed007's Note -

3.) 16 Aug 2017 22:59:19
I agree with a lot of what both of you are saying AJH and maze. I don't know what the answer is but something has to change. I would like to see a situation whereby no player can register for his new team until the fee has been paid in full this would reduce fees substantially and that no olayer can move club unless he pays up the remainder of his contract to the selling club or no entitlement to any pay off or signing on fee. Sounds ridicules i know but something radical has to be done.
Also perhaos a ' football tax' could be introduced with all clubs having to pay 20% of any fee to the fa to be distributed to lower league and grass roots football.

4.) 16 Aug 2017 23:34:58
It's business. Players will go for what clubs are willing to pay. Clubs will pay what they can afford to pay or risk going out of business. Customers fuel what clubs can afford to pay. Technology has empowered a global industry and the game will move further away from its pre-technology traditions further still. Don't like it? Don't be a customer. Simple.

5.) 17 Aug 2017 10:11:35
Football is a bubble waiting to burst, when it pops we the fans will be better off for it. Cheaper shirts, tickets, cheaper TV. Whilst the figures rise in football for transfers and salaries. We pick up the bill, people aren't going to allow themselves to be screwed over forever it's enevitable people will be priced away from the sport.

6.) 17 Aug 2017 10:13:35
Maze how would a start system work on a global scale?

7.) 17 Aug 2017 10:43:52
Sorry Walrus Maze does not understand.

8.) 17 Aug 2017 13:27:03
I don't understand why people keep moaning about transfer prices, it is basic economics, the new tv deal means every club has more money and when everyone has more money then prices increase, that's how the world works, not just with transfer fees but with every single thing in the world. You have a problem with that you need to find yourself a new planet and a new species to deal with.

The shiny new players approach is one issue but my biggest beef is the sweeping generalisations people make about our players. Blind, Fellaini, Darmian have all had their turns, I think they all have something to contribute and all seem pretty committed to the cause.

I think we have a great team spirit right now and we seem to have momentum, sometimes personalities have a big part to play in success.

Sigh, please tell me when Blind me was a liability last season, he was caught out of position a couple of times I can remember. People make sweeping statements what check are frankly dumb. I get some don't like him, some think he is average, everyone is entitled to their opinions on. I'm not saying he should be a regular starter but 'often a liability' is simply not true.

People don't want Bale because of his injury record but want us to sign Rose who has played pretty much the same amount of games. As for Martial, he needs to pick up this year or I think he will be on his way. Jose is pretty black and white when it comes to players, you are in or you are out, Martial needs to decide which it is.

I don't want him back, he has been a great icon but his age and lack of mobility are a concern as is the expectation he will have of playing. I don't see that it makes sense for us at all.

As for Coutinho, I love that after tapping up VVD Liverpool are getting a taste of it.

I think City and Chelsea will be the top 2 (not sure which way round)
Untied and Spurs next (not sure which way round)
Arsenal and Liverpool next with Everton possible challenging them,

Our League position last year was caused by our inability to put away 'lesser' teams we were dominating, this has been a great start in addressing that. I've also just posted that it's nice to see. Jose team prepared to attack until the end and not sit on a lead which he has sometimes done, perhaps a corner has been turned.

It's been great but it's a very long season, Chelsea were pants early on last year but still won the title, City and Liverpool were not initially awesome and faded quickly.

We look great with a strong bench but the lack of width remains the challenge.
