The Boeteng link is false. United trying to land Javi Martinez who is a more suitable Jose type player (Β£40mill) πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

1.) 07 Aug 2018 12:14:15
Javi Martinez is a ball playing center back and that is not Joses prefered type of player.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 13:26:14
Lindelof and Toby are both ball playing centrebacks.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 13:36:00
Javi Martinez is center midfielder.

4.) 07 Aug 2018 14:11:55
I don't want to go anywhere near Boateng, he is useless and just as injury prone as jones, Rojo and even Bailly.

We need a leader with experience, but they need to be robust/ able to stay fit.

5.) 07 Aug 2018 23:33:35
Both crap! Haha I’ll be gutted if we get either.



22 Jul 2018 16:04:14
Looks like Maguire could be arriving this week. A lot of outlets all saying the same Β£65mill. We will have to wait and seeπŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

1.) 22 Jul 2018 17:12:01
It's only the daily mail reporting this.

2.) 22 Jul 2018 17:20:06
Also Star Express MEN and all over the net . Also here in Spain πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

3.) 22 Jul 2018 17:28:51
There's been some hysteria on the site about the club falling behind or going in the wrong direction which I personally don't think is correct. However, signing Harry Maguire for Β£65m would be one of the most personic things I'd have ever seen in football.

4.) 22 Jul 2018 20:08:04
Personic, do you mean moronic? In which case I wholeheartedly agree!

5.) 22 Jul 2018 20:32:51
some reports saying he would only come in if one of Rojo, Smalling or BAILLY is sold -now that would be moronic . he is our best CH.

6.) 22 Jul 2018 21:11:06
At least he can head the ball in set balls. I don't care what are fees and if it means one of Smalling/ Jones is gone.

7.) 22 Jul 2018 21:12:58
do not see why we want another centre back victor showed for sweeden how good he can be him an baily could be the heart of our defence for years.

8.) 22 Jul 2018 21:13:48
Rj in today's market that is prob a good price

Especially how good at the world cup he's just performed.

I don't understand this site sometimes

People cry out to make signings then change there mind when they hear a figure.

25 million players don't go for that anymore football has evolved in 5 years time you will prob see the very best go for 500 million.

9.) 22 Jul 2018 21:19:39
Rojo singed a new contract 2 month ago.

10.) 22 Jul 2018 21:47:00
Maguire is average at best. What’s hard to understand about that? Β£65m for him? Football, bloody hell as our former esteemed manager once famously said.

Lindelof has a fabulous world cup why not give him a go?

11.) 22 Jul 2018 22:00:52
I'm not a huge fan of Maguire. In my opinion Alfie Mawson is a better left footed, English, ball playing centre back. The only thing Maguire does better is get his head on the ball. However, some of his headed clearance leave a lot to be desired. He also has a tendency to wander off and leave the backdoor open.

Maguire is a player who needs to play in a back three. Lindelof, Bailly and Maguire could be solid. However, I would still prefer Mawson at half the cost if we had to sign an English centre back.

Personally I work rather not sign anyone and give Tuanzebe and Lindelof a chance to seal a spot along side Bailly.

12.) 23 Jul 2018 06:50:43
I don’t see how Maguire is a huge step up from Smalling and Jones!

{Ed001's Note - did you need the word huge in there?}

13.) 23 Jul 2018 06:53:28
It's not so much the fee for an individual (which I think would be a World record for a cb? ) that is the issue for me even though that is about 4 times what Maguire should actually be priced at. It's taking a huge amount of money which could impact signing others which would be the worry. Also that we would even think about signing him would be amassive concern.

He is an average CB who has developed a far larger than average head. He isn't actually very good at bringing the ball out from the back. He tends to run into space in front of him, 50% of the time just punting into the vague direction of a teammate, not actually passing to them. We have Chris Smalling who can do that and a lot of people on this site (me included) think we need an upgrade on him.

Just because the media have a semi for Maguire at the moment doesn't mean he's any better than he actually is. Surely people can see the likes of Alderweireld, Varane, Gimenez, Bonucci etc who we have been linked with are all far better than Maguire?

{Ed001's Note - it is less than Van Dijk went for in January.}

14.) 23 Jul 2018 07:27:30
So it is ed. Completely forgot about Van Dijk.

15.) 23 Jul 2018 11:27:08
Would Varane cost much more? Ten times the player.

16.) 23 Jul 2018 12:45:26
Would you blame them if they said 65 for Maguire, 75 for van dijk ok varane is 150.



12 Jul 2018 19:07:38
Deal of the window so far Seri to Fulham Β£18mill. πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

1.) 12 Jul 2018 19:49:19
They got a good player there.

2.) 12 Jul 2018 19:53:58
Especially when everyone else was quoted 50.



09 Jun 2018 10:19:52
Some stories in sunny Spain saying Real Madrid have asked about Jose's availability in respect of a shock return as coach. πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

1.) 09 Jun 2018 10:51:11
Absolute nonsense.

2.) 09 Jun 2018 12:24:36
No chance.

3.) 10 Jun 2018 11:04:25
Woohoo. Lol.



28 May 2018 20:27:00
Fabinho to Liverpool. Wow didn't see that one coming. Good player only see someone leaving them as well as Can for them to sign him. Is he any good as a keeper πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

1.) 28 May 2018 21:06:46
sort of deal I like. under the radar. Sky football saying its offical.

2.) 28 May 2018 21:08:42
Cue the Pedro style meltdown from people who have never seen him play πŸ˜‚.

3.) 28 May 2018 21:23:31
He’s a very good player. But plenty of more fish in the sea. With Fred almost done and perhaps Milinkovic savic and we will have massively upgraded from last season.

4.) 28 May 2018 22:05:10
I ve never seen Fabinho, SMS, or Fred, Sandro.

5.) 28 May 2018 22:08:49
Money aside I’d rather live in Monaco and win the off trophy than move to Liverpool.

6.) 29 May 2018 08:01:10
He is a good player but believe it or not other teams are allowed to buy good players too.

Couldn't care less who Liverpool sign or don't sign .

7.) 29 May 2018 11:55:35
If Fred wasn't deemed good enough to go to the World Cup *cough*Fabinho wasn't*cough* we probably would have 'under the radar' signed him by now.

8.) 29 May 2018 12:55:04
GDS2, Many of us have seen him play, Monaco was an excellent team last season in the Champions League if you recall. They knocked out City and Dortmund and Fabinho was a key part of all of that. He is a very good player.

9.) 29 May 2018 13:34:13
Yes, he was. And so was Bakoyoko. Where is he by the way?
And did Monaco make it out of the group stage this season?
Not saying that Fabinho is a bad player but the hype he is getting is ridiculous.

10.) 29 May 2018 13:44:39
Addict, you might recall that Monaco lost Mbappe, Mendy, and Bernanrdo Silva as well as Bakoyoko. LIverpool have started the summer well, people need to admit that.

11.) 29 May 2018 13:50:32

It was just tongue in cheek mate, the meltdown after the Pedro signing for something else, like we had just lost out on the 2nd coming of Jesus or something.

The Monaco team that did well had a lot of good players in it not just Fabinho, it is like saying you would be gutted we missed out on Wes Morgan after he won the premier league. Fabinho is a solid player but he was never first choice for us so no big loss.

12.) 29 May 2018 14:03:19
spot on zidaniel.

we may not like liverpool but you have to admit they have done some cracking business for both keita and fabinho. definitely a step up from their current midfield which was shown up against the quality of Real's midfield 3.

Personally I am happy we have matic and if we can sign fred, savic to add to pogba and herrera then we have some great options. Add pereira to the mix and some youngsters and we have our strongest midfield options in years.

But there is not point having these great options if jose does not tweak the tactics and releases the shackles. You can have all the talent in the world but if you don't coach them into a cohesive attacking unit then nothing will change. Apparently McKenna will be running the first team sessions with Jose overseeing. If this is true then I will be delighted because the youngsters played some great football under McKenna. It seems we are taking steps in the right direction and I am personally really looking forward to next season.

13.) 29 May 2018 14:19:20
Fair play guys, I get your point now, GDS2. I just think Liverpool have started well this summer by adding Keita and now Fabinho. But I also think Fred could be a great signing for us, and hopefully another CM if Fellaini does in fact move on. Savic sounds awfully expensive at the moment but time will tell.
And Park, I like your thoughts on what McKenna could bring tactically to the team.

Karanka and Jose back to Real Madrid shortly. Everything in place. Just watch him win the Champions league πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

1.) 11 Jan 2019 23:57:05
Well they have a chance as their team is better than ours.



30 Dec 2018 13:47:04
Season greetings everyone . I think OGS or should I say the club will try to sign at least one player in Jan. Just to keep this good feeling going. I don't really know who but might shock the league. I did hear a whisper about an Γ€rsenal player coming. πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

1.) 30 Dec 2018 14:36:03
Sharkpod suggests that we might move for Milenkovic, or potentially Douglas Costa, but the management situation means that it’s difficult to business in this window.

2.) 30 Dec 2018 16:06:32
Biggest priority for the club in the next two windoes should be finding new clubs for some players to go to.
There is easily 8-10 players at the club who could go and not need to be replaced by new signings.

Romero, grant, valencia, smalling, jones, darmian, rojo, fellaini.

Thats before you get to players who have question marks over their future like young, herrera, mata, sanchez and lukaku.

Free up some wages and offer martial and de gea new increased contracts and tie them down for the long term.

3.) 30 Dec 2018 20:51:40
Said it before but I think the only business we should do in jan is smashing the record for a CB and getting Koulibaly. Then concentrate on signing De Gea and Martial to long term deals.



16 Dec 2018 12:37:24
Anybody seen the BT film "too good to go down". It follows the club from Sir Matt retirement to the Doc getting sacked. It really does look like history is repeating itself in respect of not giving Managers time to build and getting rid of certain players. Damn good watch πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

1.) 16 Dec 2018 13:13:53
Thanks BFRO, il check it out love this sort of film.

2.) 16 Dec 2018 14:34:37
What a great striker Pancho Pearson was!

3.) 16 Dec 2018 14:39:27
Was a great documentary Bfro. I’m one of the younger posters so I never lived through the pre Fergie era. My dad and grandad often tell me stories of these times having lived through it so it was nice to learn more in depth about the tenure under the Doc. Something that stood out to me was that even in division 2, our aim was to play quick attacking football to entertain the masses turning up to old Trafford each week. Having fast and exciting wingers with a centre forward that could bang in the goals. Hill and Coppell really seemed to get the fans off their seat.

4.) 16 Dec 2018 15:15:58
Not seen the film yet, however having supported from 68 I lived every game of every season in that era. Some of those seasons hurt, people don’t realise how tough it was both football wise but standard of living and way of life. It was way tougher than life is now and I don’t know if the film shows it, but because there were fewer distractions, no social media, the fate of your team seemed to mean even more. The fall from the pinnacle was spectacular and how City/ Liverpool fans loved it. It is what made me so angry when we didn’t have a plan for SAF retirement. I remember Manchester was not the clean snazzy City it is now, the ground was gritty and grim but very much a fortress for the fans yet less so the team.

Just finished watching, scary similarities with today's team and situation, maybe the hierarchy at old Trafford should watch thisπŸ˜‰.

7.) 16 Dec 2018 18:44:20
Guys, it's football. Yes, it's a pain in the hoop, but there are much more things to be angry or depressed about. We're all adults, and hopefully we all now realise that it's really not that important in the big scheme of things.

8.) 16 Dec 2018 20:31:05
Well said Noucamp,

At the end of the day, all it is is football, not important whatsoever, it's a game.

9.) 16 Dec 2018 21:35:11
Redman you will love it . I started going in 74 so only really remember the Dochety years onwards . It was very interesting to here things about a certain Mr Clough that I didn't know . Really enjoyed it πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.



31 Oct 2018 10:22:44
Sad to here about the passing of David Meek (Utd reporter for over 40 years) SAF's tribute is so fitting. πŸ™πŸ™.

1.) 31 Oct 2018 18:57:45
I am lucky to have met David Meek several times, he was an avid Hockey player when younger and played at a club where I played cricket. I first chatted to him in the clubs dressing room around 1980 about Andy Ritchie, I think Ritchie had scored a hat trick but the MEN was supporting the manager who was looking for a new forward, I think Birtles. Back then the MEN was far more toe the line to the club than it is now, so I spoke to Meeky for a while as I wanted Ritchie to get a chance. Lovely calm man who was ingrained in the football club and saw him around a few times. Bumped into him at OT, in the South Stand, he was going down to the pitch and we had a good chat, again lovely chap, well liked. May he RIP.

The new pink away kit looks a bit special. I'm old enough to remember the football pink which I've found out this kits colouring is to commemorate . A nice touch from Adidas .
I'm so glad we have Adidas and not Nike . Adidas seem to have more of a connection with the fans . Still hoping for a green and yellow kit in the near futureπŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

1.) 18 Aug 2018 09:30:11
Connecting with the fans? Don’t you mean money making scheme?
