There are some that said Jesse wasn’t good enough and I guess there are still some that think he is at best a squad player but you have to give the lad credit. He keeps popping up scoring important goals and he plays with a smile on his face and seems to enjoy every moment. I’m so pleased for him and I hope he can take that final step and be consistent.

AJH

1.) 24 Mar 2018 16:25:04
He has always been highly thought off within the club. It was always accepted that he would take longer to find his feet due to his size. I read an interview with him where he said that Sir Alex always said he would become a real player when he's 25 like Tigana. I wonder how much of him really stepping up this season is down to him feeling that this year was going to be his year.

I did worry when we signed Sanchez as it was going to push either Lingard or Martial out of the side when arguably they we our best two forwards at that time. Maybe its time for Sanchez to be dropped for a game or two and make him fight for his place against players who are in form.


2.) 24 Mar 2018 16:40:40
Shaps, I don’t know why we bought Sanchez other than to stop City buying him. We had needs inother areas way before a left sided attacker was needed and even if he starts firing it just relegates Martial or Rashford. This smacks of Woodward and his marque signing obsession. I don’t want to upset you but if Bale is available you can bet your mortgage Ed will be there waving his chequebook.


3.) 24 Mar 2018 16:46:51
The thing with Jesse is you know he will work on the pitch and not hide. He has proven this year that he has more in the locker than people thought imo but he had the beginnings of a good season couple of years back when he got ani injury early on at Swansea I think. Change of personel and management has not deterred him and I think he has saved us a good few bob on bringing in a n other player.


4.) 24 Mar 2018 16:58:44
I was one of those thinking he wasn't going to be up to it and would be sold, at times I feel foolish, but then he can be anonymous far too often for me (like most of our attacking players) .

I still think in order for us to be competing at the very top we need better than Lingard. But if he improves again as much as he has over the past 18 months then he will deserve a regular berth in a top Utd team.

I love his energy and clever runs, maybe there is even more to come from him once we get back to playing proper attacking football and those runs will be picked out by players that currently refuse the pass and opt for 'safety' instead. I certainly would like him to impact games more consistently as well, 10 seconds of brilliance now and again is good, but we need more than that over a 90 minute match from an attacking midfielder.


5.) 24 Mar 2018 17:39:38
I agree Beastand that was my point about consistency. When he is good he is very good but often you can forget he is on the pitch, which is very frustrating when he gets himself in such good positions and scores such important goals. He needs to turn up for more games than he does, which I think he will if he continues to develop as he has done in the last year. And he is home grown which means a lot to me,


6.) 24 Mar 2018 17:52:11
Does he go missing or as mentioned above is it a case of him making good runs and his team mates not playing the creative pass to find him?

The best players score in the big games, which he does more consistently than those around him. H deserves his place in the team, he works hard, he offers movement and he can finish. I think he will thrive if we add more quality to the midfield. He is a bit of a social media whore, but as long as he performs on the pitch it’s not a problem. I wish pogba put half the effort in he does.


7.) 24 Mar 2018 18:33:58
Agree with all of the posts regarding jesse in some degree, better than dele alli in my opinion who plays a similar role especially this season.


8.) 25 Mar 2018 05:21:49
I must be the only one who doesn't yet rate him. He for me is going through his Smalling patch where player looks good for a season or 2 but with lingard it has only been 2 months rather than the whole season.

He was mostly anonymous until December and has been anonymous for most part since February. That is 2 good months in 3-4 years. Yes he scores some important goals from time to time but he going to have to perform much better to be more than a squad player.


9.) 25 Mar 2018 16:58:04
No MU player apart from De Gea has been sensational for long, playing good for some time and then playing poorly.


10.) 26 Mar 2018 14:14:47
CSM, that's not really fair, even if he's only started looking like a real top player this season, he's actually been doing well for the last couple of years. He was hardly "anonymous" before December anyway. 8 goals and assists in 17 games, 11 of which he played 30 minutes or less in, may not be setting the league on fire, but it's certainly not "anonymous".

Re: the consistency, I'm inclined to agree with Huggy. He's suffering from the way the team is playing, and would have a much more consistent impact if the runs he makes were picked out a bit more often by players behind him. Now, I'm not saying he's doing everything right, maybe he'd still be a bit inconsistent with players behind him looking for those runs and playing more positive football, but the point is that we don't really know, and I don't think it's fair to judge him too harshly when we don't really know how much of the inconsistency is down to him, and how much is down to the way the teamas a whole is playing.

I would really love to see Herrera used in a more advanced role, ahead of Matic rather than alongside him, where he can look to play the passes that someone like Lingard can feed on. It's too easy to see his great defensive performances last season and forget that he's a great passer of the ball, with an eye for getting team mates in behind the defence.


11.) 26 Mar 2018 14:23:10
That FA cup winning goal seemed to really kick him on and he’s improved a lot since then.

CSM,

How you can say he’s been anonymous is beyond me, he’s probably scored more important goals than any other player in the last 2 years.


12.) 26 Mar 2018 14:53:27
Gds important goals don't mean consistency. Yes he scored against Chelsea and in fa cup final but can you remember a run of games until December where you could say he was consistently good. A first team player needs to be consistently good and unlike rashford or martial lingard isn't exactly in the youngster category.

Thorne he has been good this season but last season he had 5 goals and 3 assists in 42 games in lvg's last season he had 7 goals and 4 assists in 41 games. Those are not good figures and he needs get similar to his current nos before we can be sure that he has improved rather than going through a purple patch.

Also where exactly will he play next season jose wants savic added to the team and jorginho as replacement for carrick, so we most likely will be switching to a mf 3.


13.) 30 Mar 2018 18:44:50
Good player, nice lad, silly dancer.

Interesting rumour this morning, Real ready to move for Pogba. Could be paper trash talk of course but if they did and the money was big, would you sell? Clearly the boy has talent but he has yet to dominate a game or deliver on his potential. Is that down to him, the Manager, or a combination of both.

If the money was silly should we cash in? The problem with that is that he may go on and become the dominating player we believe is in there somewhere, and replacing him will cost a fortune too. For me, I’d seriously consider it though.

AJH

{Ed002's Note - There is zero interest in Paul Pogba from Real Madrid. They have very, very different ideas who they want.}


1.) 17 Feb 2018 11:41:22
There is no way we should be selling Pogba it would be crazy to do so.

Its likr selling the next messi and then trying to go buy a next ronaldo because we are noy patient enough.


2.) 17 Feb 2018 11:59:12
"Cash in" wtf? So some now want to sell Pogba when we have few midfielders for a pretty poor return? You bored with FIFA?


3.) 17 Feb 2018 11:20:17
Yay. Thanks ed for that.


 

 

12 Jan 2018 21:19:21
All this talk of Sanchez has masked the rumour that Vardy is also being considered. Not sure if they would sell or at what price but I think he would slot in much easier, albeit he is a like for like with Lukaku. Sanchez’s attitude worries me, the stories from Arsenal about his isolationist approach do not bode well for team spirit. Hey ho, what do I know?

AJH

1.) 12 Jan 2018 21:28:45
I hope not. Hateful diving git, Gerrard, suarez, terry, barton, keown, cattermole, Vardy. all the same to me would of hated to see any of them in a red shirt.


2.) 12 Jan 2018 23:05:33
That's one heck of a team those lot would make. Lacks some wide players tho.


3.) 13 Jan 2018 05:53:05
bfbw, there too much hate in your heart, i'd have had Keown and Suarez any day of the week. Go hug a tree man.


4.) 13 Jan 2018 08:10:14
AJH Vardy is a player Maze likes and admired over the years for his tenacity as well as his rags to riches story but to say he is a better option than Sanchez is silly, very silly.

Wake up AJH you are dreaming of poorly fabricated scenarios.


 

 

08 Dec 2017 20:28:41
So, first of all, I share my birthday with Jonny Evans so put that your pipe and smoke it. Secondly, I may have had a little wine tonight so forgive me if I am less coherent than Ronnie during a transfer window.

Sunday is a big game and I hope that Jose wakes up and has an epiphany but I fear it will not happen. I believe it is better to die fighting than running away and in football that is also true. Inspire the troops, give them hope and belief, rouse their spirits, fill their hearts with pride and desire. Let’s not turn up to stifle and try and nick a goal on the break. I don’t care if they are the best team, like Pierre the famous French fighter pilot, let’s go down in flames (google it) .

We are United, a team steeped in history and tradition, we live or die by our standard, there are times to stand up and be counted, Sunday is one of those times. We win, or we lose in a blaze of glory, to be a United fan there are no in betweens.

Time for more wine.

AJH

1.) 09 Dec 2017 01:43:34
Jesse's performance at Arsenal will have given him food for thought. Maybe we can press high with a few players and cause some chaos amongst their back line. Worry is that Matic and Ander would have to play out of their skins.

The motivational piece is way more important than formation. Win your battles all over the pitch and you'll get a win.


2.) 09 Dec 2017 10:50:17
We’ll park the bus and try to catch them on the counter and via set pieces.


 

 

27 Aug 2017 19:14:26
Just caught up with MOTD, I thought all our players played well. Amongst other things that stood out though:

1. Joe Hart, wow, surely he isn't England's goalie any more
2. Anyone else warming to Rafa? No? Just me?
3. City, still not convincing and I think strong teams will bully them.
4. Shearer has become a half cent pundit since he stopped sitting on the fence.
5. Phil Neville, got to love him, is he the most positive person in the world ever?
6. Swansea possibly not as bad as we have thought.
7. Bilic and De Boer have to be worried although after today's debacle, perhaps Wenger will be first to go.

AJH

1.) 27 Aug 2017 20:35:38
Pretty much agree with everything there mate.
I was saying to my lad yesterday that if this palace squad go down it's the best squad ever to be relegated.


2.) 27 Aug 2017 00:43:07
Phil Neville really annoys me. He's so biased it's unbelievable. Agree with the rest. De Boer is no surprise, he was abysmal at inter. Played some disgraceful football there.

The abuse directed at Raheem Sterling was appalling and the people responsible need banning and prosecuting. Sadly there are still morons who think that race, or religion, or sexuality is fair game for abuse.

Watch any match and see the general abuse that is directed at players. The ball goes out for a throw or a corner and an opposition player goes to take it. Faces contort with fury, bile is shouted at them, and the hand gestures start. This is mature adults screaming abuse at young men, very threatening behaviour that is very disturbing: outside a stadium it would be illegal but in a ground it seems anything goes. Football is a passionate game but things are regressing. The world seems an angrier place right now and I worry a fan will do something stupid. We’ve already had a couple of players assaulted in recent years and yet the abuse goes on. Is it any wonder no footballer has come out?

AJH

{Ed0333's Note - wonderful and wise words my friend. Let’s hope footballing stadia is filled with people of your mindset in the not too distant future.


1.) 10 Dec 2018 08:00:23
I forgot to mention referees where Managers add fuel to the fire as well. At grass roots level referees are being assaulted regularly and I believe the example set at the top level plays a part (as well as societal issues) . Why on Earth would anyone want to be a referee nowadays?

{Ed001's Note - it is sad but people take a game far too seriously. It is not just football though, it is all walks of life, people over react to nothing.}


2.) 10 Dec 2018 08:04:02
Seems to happen with most black players who are percieved to be flashy and not humble.

Similar sort of thing happening with the stick pogba gets but on a lesser scale.


3.) 10 Dec 2018 09:28:53
DSG,

I agree it does, however, I was also trying to make a wider point about abuse generally inside grounds against opposition players, irrespective of the colour of their skin.


4.) 10 Dec 2018 09:42:17
Well said tony, It’s totally unacceptable and I applaud sterling for standing up and speaking out. I’ve always thought he got such a rough ride by the media because of the colour of his skin. I hope something is done but call me a cynic because I don’t think this issue will ever be fully eradicated. There is always one of two Neanderthals who ruin it for the majority.


5.) 10 Dec 2018 12:01:26
I agree with ed people are overreacting to everything now. christmas songs, eating animals everything. Now I have a true story that happened here in cork, hard to believe but it's true,
A young lad started school here in cork his name was Mohammad, anyway the teacher said your in Ireland now and your new name is Mike, fine said Mike and he went home and told his mother, his mother went mad, are you ashamed of your name, your family your religion and gave him a right few slaps, then his father gave him a few more slaps, he went to school bruised the next day, what happened you Mike the teacher asked,
Shortly after I became an Irishman I was attacked by two Arabs. 😀.

I know how they feel, the Irish Catholic community in Glasgow have been discriminated against since we came here after The Famine.


 

 

09 Dec 2018 05:16:18
Watching Chelsea beat City has made me reflect on how good or bad we are. We had the better of Chelsea, but for a last minute equaliser we would have taken the points, yet here they are beating City.

There’s many of us who have been critical of Jose or the players but I’ve found the last few weeks the most frustrating. The 2 draws against Palace and Southampton have hurt us. I know it’s silly to play the ‘what if’ game but those 2 games cost us 4 points and momentum. In any other season we would have won both games; it wouldn’t have moved us into the top 4 but we would be knocking in the door.

Jose may or may not be the right man, some players may or may not not be good enough, but we are not as bad as some are saying. A couple of tweaks and we are back in the top 4.

AJH

1.) 09 Dec 2018 06:19:40
Tony, it does seem a few rotten tomatoes spoiling the whole dish. The chef obviously takes the blame because he keeps putting those in the recipe. Hopefull he has learnt the lesson and keeps Pogmato out for good.


2.) 09 Dec 2018 07:43:50
Almost as if we didn't start the season on such a negative, defeatist tone we could have had an alright season.


3.) 09 Dec 2018 08:31:27
I think you are right AJH. For me it is the negative mindset and formation the team have gone out with, some of that comes from the players and a lot from the manager. I hope we stick with Dalot and play Shaw when fit. For me this then gives the width to allow the midfield and forwards to be a threat. Also, stick with Harera and bring Fred in as this would give energy to our play.
No matter what happens with the manager down the line we can be performing better.


4.) 09 Dec 2018 10:24:38
Good post Tony. We are just woefully inconsistent. And as UA has mentioned above, there are a few bad apples in the squad (namely pogba) . When we want to put in a decent performance we can compete with the likes of Chelsea, Juventus etc. But we can’t seem to get motivated in the smaller games. These are your bread and butter. We play the other top 6 teams for a total 10 games home and away. The other 18 games are against the smaller sides. To even be in contention of top 4 we have to be winning them and be aiming to win all our home games against our rivals. Then look to pick up points away from home. We’ve dropped far too many silly points. I don’t think we are as bad as the table reflects. But I do feel it’s a little too late to challenge the top 4.


 

 

08 Dec 2018 08:23:59
It’s all about opinions but let’s try and talk facts.

Paul Pogba is a World Cup winner and had a really good World Cup

Lukaku has a proven track record of goalscoring, both in the Premier League and internationally.

We had the second best defensive record in the EPL last year, the ‘best team ever’ City conceded 1 less goal.

Jose spent the Summer slagging off the CBs and telling the World they are not good enough.

The stats say our team runs less than pretty much every other one in the EPL.

We signed. £50M midfielder in the Summer who can’t get a game.

Alexis Sanchez has been utter pants since we bought him (yes that one is my opinion but I also think it’s a fact) .

Putting facts aside, it seems there is something rotten in the club right now and it’s hard to fathom where the issue lies. Jose appears very frustrated with the players, despite the statement yesterday it seems there is a difference of opinion between him and EW on purchases, and PP is a distraction.

I would sell PP at the first opportunity and I would tell Lukaku that his contribution isn’t good enough; he needs to pick it up or he’s out too. I’d use the cash for a midfield ‘leader’ and a top class striker and I would tell the team to play on the front foot, you score 3, we’ll score 4. I’d stop slagging off the players publicly, I’d lighten up and stop scowling and whinging, I’d realise how lucky I am to be managing one of the biggest clubs in the world and I’d stop, banging on about my past success. Unlikely isn’t it.

AJH

{Ed001's Note - what do you mean by Pogba 'had a really good World Cup'? Surely that is opinion too, because whenever I saw France play Kante was carrying Pogba and doing all the work for him and Pogba offered very little. Pogba has to be the most overrated player in the game right now. He gets carried by every team he is in and still people rave about him because he happens to be part of good teams.}


1.) 08 Dec 2018 09:21:49
Tris, I'm not a Pogba fan and I agree he is masssiveky overrated, i'd sell him tomorrow. Ok it's not a fact, but it was generally accepted he had a good World Cup, both on and off the pitch.

{Ed001's Note - did you think he had a good World Cup? Only I just don't see what he did. I saw Kante having to do his job with Pogba strapped to his back each game, but failed to see what was so good about Pogba.

But I am not sure if I am missing something, as so many times Ed004 has said on our editor's widget that Pogba has had a good game today, just as I am thinking how poor he has been. Maybe it is just me, maybe I just expect too much from him and judge him on what he could do, rather than what he actually does do?}


2.) 08 Dec 2018 09:26:47
Agreed with most of what you said AJH and definitely with 001. Pogba is the biggest problem at our club right now, not the manager. He can’t even trap a ball under his foot. He’s not fit for the job. Any other profession and he’d be managed out of the company, which is perhaps what Mourinho is doing, or needs to do. I struggle to see why any club would want him on current form.

AJH - let’s not forget that Olivier Giroud is also a World Cup winner, and that too is a fact.

{Ed001's Note - but Olivier Giroud's link up play contributed to the win. He was not there as a goalscorer (luckily or they would have been in trouble!), he was there to hold the ball up and bring others into play. He does do that well, he also makes decent runs which create space for others. All things Pogba doesn't do. How many times has he made a forward run unselfishly to create space for a team mate?}


3.) 08 Dec 2018 09:44:47
Aside from opinion on whether Pogba had a good World Cup, there is, for me, also the bigger issue of comparing international football with the Premier League. It's like comparing apples and pears. Lots of very average EPL players look good at international level.

{Ed001's Note - good point.}


4.) 08 Dec 2018 10:01:23
I do come up with one occasionally Ed :)
Unless you ask my missus who I am sure would disagree!

{Ed001's Note - oh no, she says she often tells you what to say.}

"Facts aside" is that code for ignore positives.


6.) 08 Dec 2018 10:32:02
It's funny because when Jose wins it's down to him and when he loses the players aren't good enough.

I have no idea why the team aren't performing. I think we all agree that this team probably lacks the quality and consistency to win the league but they're certainly good enough to be in the mix for top 4 with the likes of Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea.

Our running stats are embarrassing and this is the principal reason why we aren't winning football matches. With the quality in our squad if we at least match the effort of the opposition we'd be much higher up the table. This comes from the manager and if the players aren't prepared to work hard then they shouldn't play. His "mad dog" comments were ill conceived and misleading. He prefers us to drop deep and he picks players without the necessary mobility to play on the front foot. This was yet another attempt to shift the blame to his players when his tactical approach and team selection is the real problem.

I maintain that Mourinho has the players in his squad to play a high intensity, pressing game but he chooses not to. He prefers to play Matic, Fellaini, Lukaku and continues to indulge Pogba despite them being at war.

He needs to select the players that will run, press and work hard and if they perhaps lack the quality, maturity or experience of the others then so be it because what we're seeing week in week out simply isn't good enough.

My team today would be Dea Gea, Dalot, Bailly, Rojo, Shaw, Herrera, Fred, Lingard, Martial, Chong and Rashford.

I'd tell them to run, press, chase, contest every ball. Never let them off the hook, Never let them make an easy pass, run all over them, let them feel the pressure, this is Old Trafford for F. sake.

At the moment they remind me of England pre Southgate. Too scared to take chances, stuck in the past playing slow, predictable, safe, percentage football. Does anyone really believe that if Allardyce was still in change then the likes of Rooney and Cahill wouldn't be in the team. Well that's where we are with Jose. He's placing his trust in the likes of Smalling, Matic, Fellaini, Lukaku, Pogba. when in reality these players are the problem. We need someone to breath new life into our team, bring fresh ideas, be braver, bolder, play faster and harder because percentage football will no longer suffice.


7.) 08 Dec 2018 10:32:11

FWIW - I think Pogba was nothing special in the World Cup, media over-hyped everything he did as usual - if France had lost the final nobody would be talking about Pogba having a great world cup. Most of this 'leader' lark comes from some speech he gave to the players so it portrayed him as a leader - the fact we all know about this speech tells me all I need to know about the purpose of it!

I often meet people that are incompetent in their work, they often tend to try and steer the dialogue when it starts getting dicey for them with distraction or by talking the loudest. It's the same as a player making a mistake and then lambasting his colleagues for not being in position or then flying into a stupid tackle to get the crowd back onside.

I'm bothered about what Pogba does on the pitch and that is turn up 1/ 5 games, even when he turns up it is typically in moments and selfish. Playing raking 60 yard balls to the wide forward who then has to beat 3 men because we have dropped so deep and he admires his pass. Or his favourite - doing a pointless trick in midfield which actually slows down the attack because he should have released the ball earlier and now the attackers are all picked up by their markers. Watch how many times he needless gives the ball away each game, bad enough for an attacker but for a CM with stuck in the mud Matic next to him, jeez!

Pogba suits a continental game and is the cherry on top if a team needs that luxury and can carry the liability. He needs more carrying than anybody in our team and most of them can't carry their own weight at the minute!

Get rid of him along with our toxic manager, they are both as bad as each other - no respect for the club, fans or their colleagues.

I remember in 1934 a young German player had a great tournament, and he turned out to be Hitler. Can’t judge players on how they do in the WC because they could end up committing mass genocide.


15.) 08 Dec 2018 12:08:00
Pogba was surrounded by top quality players with France, I’ve said all along he had maybe a decent half in the World Cup, can’t wait to see the back of him. I said at the time I didn’t want him and he’s done zilch to change my mind. Harsh words but unfortunately it’s time to cut our losses.


16.) 08 Dec 2018 12:39:35
The amount of good games PP has had can be counted on captain hooks non sword arm. He needs selling but were reluctant because we can't get the asking price. We need to bite the bullet and consider a part-ex.

The midfield is woefully unbalanced. We all moan about matic but who else do we have for that role.

He invokes a reaction, if you have an opinion on him, good or bad then broadcasters will jump on that to extract more viewers/ listeners. Everyone thinks Adrian Durham is a numpty, yet his talksport show has the second highest ratings behind Alan Brazil. So clearly being a bit of a divvy works in the media.

Sometimes watch the sav show at half 11ish saturdays tune in tomrrow.

I would rather listen to Robbie Savage than Chris Sutton right enough.

Bring back Saint and Greavsie!

@Shappy Durham and Brazil get the most listeners because they broadcast at peak times. Nothing to do with their expertise.

His podcast with Flintoff is decent but that's mainly due to anecdotes rather than punditry. His analysis of the game is exactly why he never made it as a top player, predictable and simple.

Timbo, and why do you think they have been given the peak times? Because they had proven to bring in a higher number of listeners.

@Shappy, tell me one other broadcaster who has been given a consistent chance in either of their places? Do viewing figures suddenly slump when they go on holiday? Or do they merely get sports fans, and football fans in particular, because there is no alternative at that time? They have literally cornered the market. You could put The Beast in there and figures would stay the same!

Forgot to say, how funny was Luke Shaw pushing the payer off the pitch for the substitution? It’s about time someone took the shuffling ambling player to task, quality move Luke.

Should do it to Fellaini and Matic when they're on the ball.

There are a lot of people don’t rate Rashford and would be happy to see him sold. Yet Madrid and Juve must see something others don’t.

And if it happens I will find another club to support. Some things in life are more important than football.

Of course you can Singh, Moeen has admitted it himself, his confidence was low and now it is high.

I think the press have an agenda, I can’t believe I’m typing this but I’m starting to feel sorry for Jose. I hope he has a man to man with Pogba and tells him he can be the best in the world if he does as he is told, but that he also plays him where he can excel.

Top post Shappy, we’ve spent a lot, some of it badly, bought who the Manager wanted, and he doesn’t play them or wants them gone. It’s the Board’s fault, go figure.

As a proud Warrington supporter the Adams decision is both bizarre and ridiculous. He's also a Londoner and RL is very much a Northern game. No idea how he got involved.

Leahy, I'm assuming the irony is lost on you.

DSG,

I agree it does, however, I was also trying to make a wider point about abuse generally inside grounds against opposition players, irrespective of the colour of their skin.

I forgot to mention referees where Managers add fuel to the fire as well. At grass roots level referees are being assaulted regularly and I believe the example set at the top level plays a part (as well as societal issues) . Why on Earth would anyone want to be a referee nowadays?

{Ed001's Note - it is sad but people take a game far too seriously. It is not just football though, it is all walks of life, people over react to nothing.}

I thought Fred looked great as well when he came on.
