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

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.

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.

AJH

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.

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.

AJH

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.

AJH

{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!

AJH

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.}

Interesting suggestion on the Chelsea page that they are not happy at the required fee for Lukaku and have turned their attention to Morata. Silly season in full swing.

AJH

I always remember going back to an ex girlfriend. The sex was never as good and I'd forgotten all the little things that annoyed me. Yes, she could still look stunning and there were days when I wanted to marry her but deep down it was never the same and it ended badly. Looking back I should have remembered all the good times we had enjoyed and moved on.

Ronaldo was brilliant for us, he developed from a raw teenager to one of the world's best.

AJH

1.) 18 Jun 2017 19:08:46
Press send by accident. He's still a great player but I have a coupe of issues with him:

1. His ego is immense, I don't think it would be good for the team, I don't think he plays for the team, he plays for himself.
2. The figures involved will be silly. I know we are rich and I know people think it's not our money but the fact remains if we spend stupid money on Ronaldo it limits what else we can do in terms of strengthening.
3. I am happy paying a massive fee for any player who we get many years from and can possibly sell on but not a player who is likely to start to diminish with every passing season.

And of course, the sex would not be as good.

{Ed004's Note - There are so many pros and cons to signing Ronaldo that I keep changing my mind as to whether I want him or not. If he comes in he almost instantly garuntees Top 4 or even a title challenge. His work effort would set a good example for our youngsters. He will take pressure of the likes of Pogba, Rashford, Martial etc. He comes back!
However, his age is a big concern. 2 or 3 years younger and he would be easily worth 100 mill+. Nowadays, if he wants to leave, and we are the only team he wants to go to. I'd be wanting to sign him for atleast under 100 million, maybe even under 80. This would allow us to sign full backs and a holding midfielder to get the best out of him. It would also leave us having imo the best goalkeeper, midfielder and striker in the premiership - also a case to argue for best centre back pairing if Lindelof settles quickly. In relation to his wages we have already moved on Schweinsteiger, Schneiderlin, Depay, Ibrahimovic with the likes of Young, Rooney, Janujaz etc expected to go as well}


2.) 18 Jun 2017 19:16:33
I had a similar experience but I had to pay her then boyfriend over £100m for him to let her come back to me, and then she wanted £500,000 a week to be with me.


3.) 18 Jun 2017 19:32:21
Good post Tony. Outs a head wrecker.
I mean, who would not want him I their team. He is possibly the greatest player of all time. He is still playing on top of his game. His scoring stats are improving.
The numbers are frightening. It will mean a balancing of the books and possible lack of investment elsewhere.
Heart says yes and no.
Head says yes and no.
Anyway i don't believe he will move.


4.) 18 Jun 2017 20:05:09
If he's only coming back because he's pissed off about a tax bill then I think we should forget about it.


5.) 18 Jun 2017 22:37:03
Go get Ronaldo and Morata. Just think of the statement of intent that will make to the rest of the Premier league wannabes 😆😆.


 

 

08 Jun 2017 09:53:30
I'm guessing a lot of the deals this summer will be linked. If Madrid sign Mbappe for big money then they will look to offload someone, Moratta or perhaps Bale. Same goes for the other big teams. We can see it at Chelsea where Costa appears on the way out, presumably to make space for Lukaku.

We are still developing so will be adding strength to our squad and any leavers will more than likely be squad players, I guess it depends how much money we spend.

I actually don't like the window, it just gets ridiculous how many players we are linked with, someone posted a graphic last year where there were about 40 players named by the press as coming to us. I don't want us to get silly, I think we need 2 or 3 top quality signings and possible a couple of squad players to freshen things up.

AJH

1.) 08 Jun 2017 10:19:16

I agree, best to wait and see who we sign then get on with it next season.

Predictions results time! Apologies for the delay and thanks to ken for the prompt.

Firstly to the scoring system.
Champions 6
Top 6 correct place 3
Top 6 incorrect place 1
Bottom 3 correct place 3
Bottom 3 incorrect place 1
FA Cup Winners 4
FA Cup runners up 2
League Cup Winners 4
Champs League Winners 4
Champs League runners up 2
Europa League winners 4
EPL Top Scorer 4

So, if you got everything correct you could amass a grand total of 54 points. We had 198 entries; lots of scores were the same with people bundled together

Before we get to the winner, let’s pick a few regular posters and see ow they did.

The lowest score was 6 (six) with 5 posters managing that impressive level. Looking at some of the more regular posters Schmidfield managed 7 points, Moon and GDS 9 points. Moving in to the heady heights of double figures,

Leahy achieved 11, Dodgy 12, and jred 13. The Europa and League Cup wins got me to a heady 16, the same as ken and Stand and Mrs Beast, who fell a point short of Beast who managed 17. Shappy managed 18 as did Redman, Bond managed 19.

And so the winner. Joint runners up with 25 were Maryan Bubu-Darko, inhope, and Singh, but the winner with 26 points, all on his own was momo07.


Prediction Results

3.) 04 Jun 2017 23:30:27

I'm just happy to make the second paragraph!

As they say in Liverpool, next year is my year 😂.


4.) 04 Jun 2017 23:48:08
Well done AJH. Thanks for the efforts.

{Ed007's Note - Ed004.... it's getting creepy now!

Cheers AJH, good man. (clap


5.) 05 Jun 2017 00:04:14
Thanks Ajh. Thought I did well to come nearly last. Thanks for all your hard work on this. I'll go back to the top next year.


6.) 05 Jun 2017 02:46:22
Phew. Not totally embarrassing. 18pts. It looks like the results were inversely proportional to the amount people had to say! Strange that.

Thanks AJH for initiating and compiling.


7.) 05 Jun 2017 04:35:11
Impressive 29th with 19 points in my first year running. Just happy not to be relegated.


8.) 05 Jun 2017 05:44:01
Saw myself on 42 with 18 points, then scrolled down to see 199 and I feel like a boss lol👌🏽.


9.) 05 Jun 2017 05:50:21
Nice one AJH. I got the top 4 all wrong tonne fair. Although I didn't have us down to win it, and I won't again next season.


10.) 05 Jun 2017 08:29:02
Cheers AJH!

Im quite impressed for my first attempt!


11.) 05 Jun 2017 09:55:53
Cheers AJH
Joint second should get me into Champions Lg for next season.


12.) 05 Jun 2017 10:53:13
31st - not too shappy (who is below me) oh i mean shabby lol.


13.) 05 Jun 2017 11:29:54
Well ajh. thanks for doing it.11 points I was nearly fighting relegation.
Interesting to see how many had United to win the league.


14.) 05 Jun 2017 12:02:32
I came second!


15.) 05 Jun 2017 12:19:47
I would celebrate my 34th place finish out of nearly 200. But I worry Beast would start a "Shappy out" campaign for me accepting mediocrity. Lol.


16.) 05 Jun 2017 12:31:35
Good effort ajh,
Leahy interesting how many had us winning the league and the cups.


17.) 05 Jun 2017 13:38:34
I see what you did there Jamesmack. Lol. And Singh, the Mrs' must be over the moon. Lol.


 

 

04 Jun 2017 14:37:52
That's some team Carrick has pulled together for his testimonial. I may have miscounted but I think there are 9 United captains in his team.

AJH

1.) 04 Jun 2017 15:50:03
That's what made us great AJH. So many disciplined personalities, always 3, 4 or 5 players that would step it up when required. That's what we are missing now. A leader in every position.

My issue is more to do with the morals of the situation as opposed to the legality. If you earn tens of thousands of pounds a week then there is no reason why you should not pay your tax. To have these convoluted work arounds to make you even richer is frankly pathetic.

Whether it is legal or not is secondary for me, pay your damn tax.

GDS, all of us can go get an ISA if we want to, not sure how many of us can route our earnings through shell companies in the Virgin Islands. My point isn't really about Jose, it's about the super rich who just want to be richer, they have strange values that are alien to me.

Come on Fresh, why is it that those who have way more than others seek to avoid paying their tax? It's pathetic. They have more money than they will ever be able to spend yet they want to avoid their repsonsibilities, it's immoral.

Propel hate paying tax but it's necessary, for most of us it is a pain as we have mortgages, cars, bills to worry about. When do any of these footballers (or pop stars, or film stars) have to worry about a bill? They need to get a grip and pay their tax.
