12 months ago I was a very unhappy utd fan. We had a manager I didn't rate and got slapped in the face by every player we looked at. I can't help but feel that maybe with Hererra and Shaw already signed that the problem may not have been Woodward but the players we were interested in also didn't rate Moyes. Roll on to now and we have a new manager who will only have seen his stock rise with a respectable world cup placing and some either genius or lucky decisions which either way show he has balls big enough to fill old Trafford. Add to this the bumper new deal with adidas and it looking more likely on a daily basis that Vidal could be joining us which would for me and I'm sure many others would be the "marquee" signing we were all pining for last summer
Not to mention the other players we need to fill the gap in defence and attack I for one can not wait for the new season to begin. Even if we don't win the league next season I will still be happy as the intent and ambition in getting us back to the top again looks to be happening.

You could well be right BeachBum - personally I hoped Moyes would work out (as I would with any incumbent in the Utd managers chair) and felt he maybe could have, however the history books will say not and that's all that matters. We do seem to be on a hugely promising upward curve this summer and that without doubt is, in part, due to LVG's arrival.

Remember though all things are relative - we really did only have one way to go after last summer + season and that was up. As long as we don't get carried away with the inevitable downs that will occur along the way I feel we could tear up a few trees this year (new signings permitting). Fingers crossed.

2.) I admire LVG just as much as the next guy but not so sure I'm comfortable with the thought of his balls invading Old Trafford.

3.) I've said it many times, depending who the manager is it will determine who plays for you.
You can go for a manager who has managed at the highest level and won many things, while also developing youth and players of all ages.
Or can can for a manager who's never won, no big team ever wanted him, no development skills, no winning mentality or tactics like the person we had

Should Neymar join Paris would anyone else rather spend the Perisic money on Julian Draxler?


1.) 02 Aug 2017 08:05:52
Draxler isn't really a natural winger. too similar to what we already have. Where as perisic is comfortable playing both flanks and also full-back.

Perisic would offer more for money in our current squad.

I'd imagine that Martial is hoping that the Bale press reports are just rumour's. He would probably be fuuuuuming if asked to change his shirt number. AGAIN!


1.) 27 Jul 2017 01:29:11
ROFL 😂😂.



17 Jul 2014 13:53:32
Now I know were all excited by links and possible deals for Vidal and Reus etc. i'm still hoping a deal could be done for Daley Blind. Now I know people will.say he's not the quickest and fair point but neither was sherringham or bergkamp and whist granted they were forwards and not left backs they both had fantastic football sense and were fantastic players. Also with evras imminent departure to juve he would give us experienced cover at lb for which he one ajax player of the year and also in midfield which last season he won dutch footballer of the year. He is obviously very adaptable and versatile with a good footballing brain on him.


1.) The problem with Blind is he won't want to come to United as a utility player. He wants to play in his favourite position in cm and, frankly, he isn't good enough to be a first choice cm for us.



04 Jul 2014 11:13:54
Okay more of an opinions post here folks! Out of the 3 forwards were continually linked with. Di Maria, Sanchez and Memphis who do you think is most likely? Also with juves interest in Evra. Could this put us back in for blind? He could play mf and cover shaw at lb possibly saving some money this summer as I don't see vidal coming. And lastly if chelsea came back in for rooney would anyone else be happy with lukaka in a px. Pie in the sky really but i'd go for it.


1.) I would sell Rooney in a heartbeat. From a footballing perspective he has not been the same player since he had his first contract renewal under SAF. We are paying the same wages as the likes of Zlatan, Cristiano and Messi and yet is nowhere near their level. However I can only think that commercially he is worth an awful lot to the club. So until we get a player with that "Star" quality I think Rooney will stay.

Out of the three, I think Sanchez will go to Arsenal and it looks as though we are in for Di Maria if reports are to be believed. I would welcome this and think it would work under Van Gaal because Di Maria works so hard for 90 mins. Yes he might be a bit inconsistent, but then LVG played Dirk Kuyt for Netherlands because he is a workhorse.
Id take both Blind and Depay as back up for Shaw/Di Maria and then Memphis for Nani or Valencia.

2.) 04 Jul 2014 12:28:18
Zatlan is very overrated imo. Certainly not up their with the best in the world and the only thing bigger than his ego is his nose. P.s I don't think Blind would do so well at left back in the PL, far too slow.

3.) Oh no, someone has mentioned the R word in a less than complimentary way, I can see a debate starting yet again.

4.) Ste. Zlatan's goals scoring record is as good as most - he is a top player, just a bit of an arse.

5.) 04 Jul 2014 13:21:26

Memphis & Depay are the same player.

His name is Memphis Depay

6.) Harry, That one I know.

I just used both names.

I was being clever! But obviously to clever! :)

7.) Depay needs to show a lot more before being compared to Sanchez, Di Maria, or Cuadrado (my addition :). Sanchez, we've been hearing about Arsenal, Juventus, and Liverpool. Di Maria, PSG and Monaco.
Blind seems a decent player, and versatile, two nice assists v Spain, but I'm not sure he is quick enough.

8.) Would lover the scousers to buy Rooney he is just what they need.

9.) I agree with fresh.zlatan is very arrogant and outspoken and that can rub a lot of people up the wrong way but you can't deny when needed he usually delivers the goals in big games. Players who consistently do that are world class in my opinion (messi at this world cup a perfect example).



20 Jun 2014 11:17:51
Having been able to watch quite a lot of the world cup I have to say manager aside, the players I like the look of the most are also dutch. I think blind, Martins indi and depay all look like they would fit in well and definitely improve us in their respective positions. The one position I can't decide on who I like is where we are so desperate in cm. I can't for one second imagine that the likes of kroos and vidal would be coming especially with no cl. Manchester United the name doesn't have the same pull for players that it once did with most now preferring a spanish move or holding out for mega wages at one of the fantasy football clubs. Eds and posters alike who do you think likely and realistic targets will or should be? The only other cm player I've liked the look of is mateo kovacic but I doubt inter would want to sell or he would even want to come. I didn't rate song the other night either and for me he can stay at Barcelona. I'd love sanchez and busquets but their just never going to happen either.


1.) Herrera for mexico has been the pick of the bunch for me

2.) 20 Jun 2014 12:13:18
Busquets? Oh god no.

3.) The Dutch forwards and defence have been very impressive. Depay, Indi, de Vrij, Blind, Robben and RVP have all been excellent. Also have been very impressed with de Guzman who I have paid little attention to until now. The CM position is a very tricky one though, no one has been standout and achievable for us. I'm still hoping that we make a double swoop for Vidal and Sanchez (dream land). Perhaps a move for Schweinsteiger.

4.) I think that we should put a bid in for the Dutch squad and start playing in clogs.

5.) 20 Jun 2014 13:03:31
Think the fact you think de Guzman looks good says it all fresh. Danny, your sarcasm is going off the scale at the moment! Love it.

6.) The dutch shirts where really bright as well, not sure what washing powder there using but we should get it for next season

7.) Danny, I recon we should sack Ed Woodward and replace him with Greg DYKE.
See what I did there? lol.

I'll get me coat. Again.

8.) 20 Jun 2014 15:22:08
If your going be careful and tiptoe through the tulips.

9.) So am I not allowed to be impressed with a player? De Guzman has been very solid in the Holland midfield - not saying we should go for him at all so don't put words in my mouth.

10.) Danny I once went to, I'll call it an entertainment bar in Amsterdam, there was a couple of ladies 'performing' on stage, both wearing clogs, if The Man Utd players come out in clogs I fear the memories may cause arousal. It just wouldn't be right.

11.) You mean people aren't usually aroused watching football?

12.) 20 Jun 2014 18:13:45
Fresh, I never said that you said we should go for him, so only one person putting words in someone's mouth.

My point was that some players look great at the World Cup that clearly have just upped their game for the tournament and are not actually at that top level.

13.) Carlton

I may have misread your post but you find clogs arousing? Fair play mate each to his own

14.) Haha

It was more what the ladies in clogs were doing than the actual clogs, I'll see if there are any vids on YouTube with clogs to check it definitely was the ladies and I don't have a wooden footwear fetish.

For me I'd love Bale to sign. Like said before the previous three seasons he played 40 games + a season. Not to mention smashing goals in for fun. When he plays he's a game changer the likes we haven't got and I really don't see anyone else of that caliber who is available. Plus whether some of the fans want him or not he's the forward signing Woodwood has been dreaming since taking over. So I think if United think he's available Woodward will be off to Madrid to piggy back him back to OT so he doesn't go lame again falling off the plane.

The full back I'd have liked was Mateo De Sciglio. I think Juve got a bargain there at 12 mill.

I agree with redseven. I think also we were only looking at him as we new vidal wasn't available until the summer. I think come summer unless fellaini turns into pirlo vidal will be the primary target.

Is there any substance to the Kroos rumours? I don't see Bayern selling tbh. would be delighted if true though.




Click To View This Thread

Agreed! If we could get him now him and mata we would be vastly improved. Really made up about mata. Been Chelsea's best player two seasons running. My new favorite utd player! Just need a full back and centre back as well in the next 8 days. Not counting me chickens!

I think MF should be given the respect that any professional who plays for us to be shown. So he wasn't a player a lot would have bought he's world class next to djemba djemba. Also a lot of the players that the fans wanted would not have joined had SAF or Moyes was in charge and with Van Gaal also. Fellaini was a player that was happy to play for them. So thank MF and good luck if you go to turkey.

Really looking forward to seeing Matic playing for us also. Prem proven knows how to win trophies and deal with top level pressure, not to mention trusted and known by the manager.

Well said Mick. I wish him all the best of luck for what's looking likely to be a move to Galatasary.

Its literally the second coming of Christ! I would have him back in a heart beat he's my favorite player of all tine. We may never see another in our generation and for me the Pele of our time.

Come on though is nobody even a little excited? Jose did say 4 signings and maybe a surprise.

*hiding in shame* ill re phrase that to best Celt manager I the league before anyone notices. Either way moyes sucks worse than my accent recognition skills and needs his p45 before we struggle with a Europa league spot. We need klopp or someone who would be able to at least attract players and also have tactical knowledge that exceeds the primary school teachers level of moyes.
