I'm still being told that the plan is to extend pogba.

And as before to buy a CB we need to offload 2 CB first.

Most recently added that a striker won't be purchased even if lukaku is sold.

How reliable this is I do not know but they did get the medical of Daniel James accurate.


1.) 22 Jun 2019 18:15:00
6ft 3” is tall enough.

2.) 22 Jun 2019 18:21:50
Can see this happening - need to trim squad and sell players first 😢.

3.) 22 Jun 2019 18:28:51
None of that is good news.

4.) 22 Jun 2019 18:43:35
If we sell lukaku and don't buy a goal scorer we are screwed.



12 Jun 2019 14:29:05
Lukaku's interview for me has basically confirmed he is leaving unless the club block it.

Only way I can see that happening if they don't get there price wanted to players in return.

Tbh talking like that he needs to be gone it is disrespectful to the clubs manager.


1.) 12 Jun 2019 16:24:13
He better hope he does get sold now, can't imagine most fans will be so keen on him now he's publicly flirting with other sides.

Too many players seem to be do this now.

2.) 12 Jun 2019 17:42:08
Good night Vienna for Lukaku.

3.) 12 Jun 2019 17:55:38
Maybe that's why he was like this in his interview. It might make UTD change their mind about not selling him.

Solskjaer mentioned having players with the right attitude. Clearly Lukaku is one of those players who doesn't.

If wants to leave, he should hand a transfer request in.

4.) 12 Jun 2019 18:19:39
I hope he leaves for his career. No point wasting time under the non manager.

5.) 12 Jun 2019 18:38:54
Good to see Dan James finally signed hope it works out well for him.
Could do with some positive news regarding bruno Fernandes.
Hopefully get wan bassaka for realistic price. a new striker and hopefully a stellar signing to help woody sell shirts.
Lukaku and Sanchez to be shown were the exit sign is . A better attitude for the start of the new season and hopefully . We might be into something good.

6.) 12 Jun 2019 18:40:13
Good, bye see you, tara Rom.
1 in 17 against top 6.

7.) 12 Jun 2019 20:03:26
I’d get rid of Lukaku and a couple more and hopefully stop signing these football mercenaries. What will get us out of this mess is energy and enthusiasm to complement football talent. From what I have seen recently of James, from what I saw of Wan-Bissaka last season, these should be the blue print of our signings (hopefully we get Wan-Bissaka) .

8.) 12 Jun 2019 21:03:37
They are all merchant navys.

9.) 13 Jun 2019 00:29:03

saying same thing again and again adding nothing.

10.) 13 Jun 2019 05:08:04
Thanks GDS, you did the absolute same thing with your reply 😋😋😋. repeated the same thing adding nothing. No matter what you or anyone says, Ole will never be worthy of being a manchester united manager in my eyes.

11.) 13 Jun 2019 06:01:51
UA, ole was asked to come in to help the club after Jose was sacked, we get you love Jose but ole had nothing to do with his sacking. He had a great start results wise whether you like it or not and was appointed by the club to be permanent manager, now ole isn't exactly going to say no is he. Yes he's had a rough time towards the end of the season but he has to have time to bring in the players he wants to suit how he wants to play and whether they are players you want or not surely you, me and every fan should get behind the team and show our support, how you can say he will never be worthy is pretty dumb, no one knows how things will work out so people need to stop throwing their toys, stop speculating on things we don't have a clue about and support the team.

12.) 13 Jun 2019 06:07:16
That's a ridiculous statement UA.
Let Ole get a pre-season, new recruits and let's see if he is able to move the club forward.

The decision is already made. As a supporter, it is our duty to back the manager.

13.) 13 Jun 2019 08:20:24
Jose was the one who should never have been Utd manager. I actually like Jose, and there is no questioning his ability, but he simply didn't fit at Utd.

14.) 13 Jun 2019 13:28:54
If its 'no matter what anyone says' then you are in the wrong place as this is a forum for discussion and listening to other people's informed opinions.

My reply did add something but the Ed's decided only to include the end of it which is fair enough, when you post the same thing on different posts it is called trolling, there really isn't a place for that here, go on twitter or something.

15.) 13 Jun 2019 13:51:34
Opinions, each to his own. Now i am not asking you guys to say yes to what i am saying or feel. You back Ole, fine by me. I dont, so i guess it should be fine to you guys too. I have seen 6 months of football under Ole and haven't seen a style or pattern developing in his game. His in game management has been poor and saying poor is being modest. He has played his favorites week after week after week, no matter how atrocious they have been. Pre-season is a PR exercise. He has had 6 months already. I don't see how 15 days of pre-season is going to help. Yes he will get a few new players in but you can put the worlds best players in the team but unless you have a style or pattern that you want your team to play in, none of those players would do any good. And let's be honest, atleast to ourselves, we all know that it is Phelan that is the manager behind the scenes and Ole is just a yes man.

Its not about whether i respected Jose or not but atleast he had the balls to call people out who didn't want the best for the club. let's see how Ole does. As far as i have heard, club will block Pogba's transfer so what will Ole do? Play him week after week and let him spoil the club's environment. He should have the guts to not play that bad apple.

My opinion.

16.) 13 Jun 2019 14:03:41
GDS you do like to tell people what they should do or not. What is it. doesn't your wife listen to you, so you come here and tell others? Or are you Ole's wife? How come you become the moral police on here? I haven't seen one post of mine where you haven't poked your nose in, isn't that what normal "informed" people would call trolling? If my posts disturb you, why don't you simply ignore it and move on, like i do for yours. Its a simple step, try it for once and you will feel better.

17.) 13 Jun 2019 15:35:51
UA I think it’s clear to everyone that you just move on.

18.) 13 Jun 2019 16:28:40
Care to explain that Perth?

19.) 14 Jun 2019 01:34:18
The OP is nothing to do with Ole but you once again chose to slag him off, hence why I called it trolling. We know that you dislike Ole, what are you adding by continuously saying it over and over?

I think the thumbs up and down can give you an idea and a gauge as to which of us people think is the troll here.

20.) 14 Jun 2019 07:05:09
Telling people to move on should not be acceptable. I had a dose of that from one or two and at one point I was told I had some mental condition on here, some syndrome, all because I had an opinion that someone didn’t agree with. UA, you have an opinion and stand for what you believe.

As for Ole, my opinion is well known, but we haven’t lost games these last few weekends so Ole’s stock must be improving. We are trying to attract players with an amateur manager and I can’t see Ole’s tactical acumen improving due to pre season. Thank goodness Allegri is taking a sabbatical so when Christmas comes and we are in a mess there might be a potential option when Ole is shown the door. Just wish we could be rid of the owners and Woodward as well.

21.) 14 Jun 2019 07:33:38
UA my comment was sarcasm.
You talked about ignoring people’s comments and moving one.
But by continuing the argument, you clearly have not moved on.
I don’t care if you do or don’t 😊 it doesn’t bother me.
But you did one thing and claimed to be doing another.

22.) 14 Jun 2019 08:52:22
Mike, I replied to GDS because he used my i'd in the post. He was in a direct conversation with me and wasn't posting anything related to the OP. Not replying to someone when they are interacting with you is plain disrespect to the other in my eyes.



03 Jun 2019 22:41:28
I've also been told pogba will be signing a new bumper contract!

Whether any of this information Is true I have no idea.


1.) 04 Jun 2019 03:00:49
I still think that Pogba rumors to RM and Juve (tweeted by Romano) are Raiola's ploy to secure a new contract for Paul bringing his wages in line with those of Sanchez.

2.) 04 Jun 2019 10:57:49
I would hope united are not stupid enough to give pogba more money. But i guess we shall see.



14 May 2019 12:26:07
Hi Ed02

I mentioned Steven bergwijn a while back, has there been any more movement from mufc for his services or is he likely to go elsewhere?

Hope your well.


{Ed002's Note - The situation remains as it was as far as Manchester United are concerned. Several clubs still have an interest and agreement was reached between van Kooperen and another side, but that has a dependency.}



04 Apr 2019 13:41:07

Do we hold any interest in Bergwijn?


{Ed002's Note - Steven Bergwijn (LW/RW/F) has been watched by MU but there is serious interest from elsewhere.}

1.) 05 Apr 2019 16:35:35
Interesting choice he will be but to be honest, Neres has caught my eye a bit more as a viable option for utd.

2.) 05 Apr 2019 17:47:27

I like Bergwijn because he is flexible across the front 3, I think he would be ideal for our squad. Have watched him a lot he will need time to settle though.

I just hope we sign him.

Why don't we give dalot a chance at rb.
Why don't we promote Ethan laird to cover him.

Club needs a reset, sell the stars and play the youngsters until the virus is completely gone.

If we did this I wouldn't care if we finished 10th if it meant we was rebuilding the right way.


1.) 18 Jun 2019 10:09:42
A 10th place finish would be a disaster. Please wash your mouth out.

2.) 18 Jun 2019 10:24:37
sorry Big V disagree completely. neither are ready and it would be lambs to a slaughter relying on them to get us out of this mess. AWB and dalot together would be great options. it is all well and good saying oh promote the kids but where are the experienced or seasoned leaders that set the standard at this club? that is the issue. the likes of the class of 92 came into strong dressing rooms where they knew they had to work to reach a certain level of performance. our dressing room is a joke. until we sort it out these talented youngsters will be just that. and before we know it they will be corrupted by the cancerous attitude which is rotting our club to its core.

3.) 18 Jun 2019 10:24:42
Because neither are currently good enough, and both are more likely to fail to make the grade here than a more proven player.

This insistence on playing the youngsters is getting out of hand. If they re good enough, they ll get into the squad, until they become good enough to hold a perma position, stay on as a squad player or leave.

Glad you re not in charge.

4.) 18 Jun 2019 10:45:45
Dalot will be a good backup for Shaw and AWB (if we sign him) .
He can cover both left and right fullback spots.

5.) 18 Jun 2019 11:07:58
We need to forget the obsession with proven players, we need to coach and improve our own.

This will allow us to rebuild and mould the mentality at the club.

I know the glazers wouldn't allow this but this would be the best solution, I don't care where we finish as long as club is reset.

6.) 18 Jun 2019 13:27:36
Thing is big V there has to be something there for the players to be Improved.

Some players are already past the point of improving.

7.) 18 Jun 2019 14:09:11
I am not convinced that Dalot is the answer defensively to improve our back 4. I would take Wan Bisaka over him and have Dalot as a change option in game or for certain games as a rotation. I can also see games where we may go 352 with Wan Bisaka in as right side of the 3 at the back which could allow for Dalot to provide more attacking width who can help at the back (bit like England did at world cup)

8.) 18 Jun 2019 15:39:23
I would like to see Dalot cover both RB and RW, with a new RW signed this summer.
AWB, new RW and Dalot would cover our right side for the season.

I was impressed with Dalot's attacking attitude last season. He has work to defensively, as do all youngsters.



17 Jun 2019 14:30:54
This summer I really don't want to see any massive signings

I don't want any players above 50 million.

I want these players to come in with not the big price tag pressure and just get on with playing.

If we didn't sign anyone and played the kids and got rid off the rest over next 2 transfer windows then so be it.

Its about time the club looked after itself and stopped falling for the mercenaries in football.


1.) 17 Jun 2019 15:01:42
The moment United is interested in a player the price goes up, hope we sign some gems but players like AWB, Bruno, Youri won't come for cheap.

Also i am really surprised that Ruben Neves is not a name that i see in any transfer saga.



10 Jun 2019 18:42:07
Some news

So the person who told me about a medical last week and also said pogba would be signing a new contract.

Has also said we won't be signing a new CB unless 2 are moved on.


1.) 10 Jun 2019 19:10:38
Surely rojo has to go this summer. Have we considered eBay?

2.) 10 Jun 2019 19:25:26
They could have just not renewed smalling and jones contract, would have taken their wages off the books to bring this new centre back in.

3.) 10 Jun 2019 19:52:25
Calm down with those logical solutions DSG.

4.) 10 Jun 2019 20:25:28
Rojo limited to where he can go isn't he.

5.) 10 Jun 2019 20:42:36
I find it hard to believe we need to get rid of 2 centre halfs to be signing one.

We don't sign another CB we are screwed

We conceded the most ever goals in a season last year our defence is shocking.

6.) 10 Jun 2019 20:46:21
Big V I’m hoping your friend has a wicked sense of humour.

7.) 10 Jun 2019 21:02:41
Jones and Smalling only got new deals for minimum nationality quotas.

8.) 10 Jun 2019 22:43:24
That makes sense I suppose. We currently have Lindelof, Bailly, Smalling, Jones, Rojo and Tuanzebe. That's 6 players for 2 positions. I think two out the door for one in sounds about right.

9.) 10 Jun 2019 23:17:20
Rashford, lingard, pogba (assume he's eligble to be considered homegrown), periera, shaw, tuanzebe, mctominay, greenwood, henderson, fosu mensah, gomes, garner, laird and the legend lee grant.

Was it really neccesary to sign jones and smalling to new contracts just to ensure we filled our homegrown quota?

10.) 10 Jun 2019 23:40:57
When we sign a cb we will move 2 on. Rojo we can always send home at worst on loan or something and maybe one of jones or smalling will take a look and decide they want to play. I think smalling would be a good signing for any number of epl clubs. Not so much jones as he just can't stay fit.
Failing that tuanzabe would be welcomed b ack at villa and a season in the epl playing weekly could all benefit him long term.

Bailly if fit is the most saleable if you like and he may push for a move if he sees limited game time ahead. He started well at United but has been poor for a while. I had high hopes but i don't have as much hope as i did. He is still young so he could still turn it around.

11.) 11 Jun 2019 03:41:17
If I believe this. I would say the 2 would be Baily and Rojo.
Although I would want it to be Jones and Rojo.

12.) 11 Jun 2019 06:10:26
Heard a rumour Jones' contract is being charged straight to the medical sciences department.

Tuanzebe could well benefit from experience with Villa again this season, unless Ole is going to trust him and play him.

13.) 11 Jun 2019 16:30:27
I don't think players under 21 count.



08 Jun 2019 10:12:38
This new contract offer for Mata.

I genuinely like him as a footballer since he came to the club and has been a decent servant.
But surely now is the time to go, offering him a new contract is not working on rebuilding the team.

Also if Ashley young is our starter rb you may aswell forget next season, he has cost us many times.


1.) 08 Jun 2019 10:39:51
Will be an unpopular opinion but when we are all talking about a bad egg in Pogba and getting him out the club I think keeping a very good professional, humble and honest individual like Mata will be a good thing for young players. I am not expecting and certainly hoping the contract isn’t to signify his role in the team as I agree this is not beneficial in moving forward but we do certainly need more “professional” players around the squad than these jumped up attention seeking individuals who are always on the look out for their next big pay cheque.

2.) 08 Jun 2019 11:25:34
I agree ports but if the contract is a pay rise and is for 2 more years, it is only damaging the club long term.

I would like for us to just take the risk let him go and give someone younger the chance to play.

3.) 08 Jun 2019 11:33:29
Its pros an cons really. He doesn't offer enough on the pitch to justify a new contract. But he's a popular professional who's a good influence in the dressing room. There's a lot who should go before him but looks like we'll have them here next season. Ultimately its up to him. Does he want to stay as a bit part player or move somewhere for regular game time.

4.) 08 Jun 2019 13:00:44
If Management want to keep him around as a good influence on the dressing room and the younger players, they should offer him some sort of coaching role or player development role. They shouldn’t take up a squad position for this.

5.) 08 Jun 2019 13:02:27
I’m not sure on how reliable the reports were about the team taking a pay cut if they failed to qualify for the Champions League but if it is to be believed, I know renewing a contract may result in a different scenario to existing contract but surely (I know I shouldn’t be giving Woodward to much credit here) they wouldn’t renew at a higher wage?! Therefore I think Mata on a lesser wage, assuming he wasn’t one of the bigger earners anyway, is not the worst idea. Against the “lesser” teams playing him in a 10 role with 2 energetic CM’s and him playing balls to James, Rashford and one of Lingard or Martial would be quite effective IMO.



04 Jun 2019 18:29:51

Do you have an update on Mata?

Is he staying or going?


{Ed002's Note - I expect him to go.}

1.) 05 Jun 2019 01:08:35
Love mata.

Used in the wrong position but good luck to him when he leaves

Cracking plurrrr.
