Only thing that might hurt us this season is the depth of our squad.
With a super busy February i think we should have opted to buy few backup players in midfield to give some rest to Matic, Herrera and Pogba.
Rabiot was/ is available and i think would be a very good addition. Upfront we are fine and have plenty of cover in forward positions.

Problem with our defence is known to everyone except EW, may be he is just waiting for a new manager and not buying players that a new manager would not want.
Hope we cope well with busy fixtures and come out unscathed.

1.) 30 Jan 2019 13:02:23
I think Rabiot would be a great signing - even if secured on a free transfer to come in at the end of the season. Would work very well with Pogba/ Matic/ Herrera and being French probably would get on well with Pogba and Martial.

2.) 30 Jan 2019 16:35:20
For me its a no brainer but is there any interest from either side? Probably not.

3.) 31 Jan 2019 07:24:12
Midfield depth is a big issue as we only have three players of the desired quality.



25 Jan 2019 13:48:12
Any interest from Man Utd to buy Nicolo Barella? read something on the papers, EDs?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware. Liverpool looked at him a while back.}



14 Jan 2019 09:38:14
United in contact with David Brooks?

1.) 14 Jan 2019 10:25:39
Hugely talented prospect And would be nice to make something of a young lad City cut loose.

2.) 14 Jan 2019 12:13:39
they haven't called me yet.

3.) 14 Jan 2019 15:12:30


You win the internet today for that comment.

Have a thumbs up as well.



03 Jan 2019 15:38:37
Fosu-Mensah's loan at Fulham has been terminated.

This can be a good news for us as we
are in need of defensive reinforcements.

{Ed002's Note - He was not good enough to play for them and is being replaced by someone far better. He is certainly not good enough for Manchester United and won't survive much longer at the club.}

1.) 03 Jan 2019 15:55:42
Have to agree with 002 here. I had high hopes for TFM but he did nothing at Palace and hasn't been able to break into the worse defence in the league this season. He's not good enough for a club with title aspirations, he wouldn't get near City, Spurs or Liverpool's team so he should be nowhere near ours.

2.) 03 Jan 2019 17:03:39
He dislocated his shoulder and dropped out. Bit concerning he couldn't force his way back in at arguably the worst team in the league though.

{Ed001's Note - he is not a defender, I don't know why he is being pushed in that direction.}

3.) 03 Jan 2019 17:33:04
He should be playing as a midfielder, that was always going to be his best position. However, that is a role that takes on a lot of responsibility. Whereas, RB is a "easier" role to learn in as there is less responsibility on you in that area of the pitch.

The issue is you only need a handful of games to get used to the faster pace of EPL first team football. After that you gain nothing from playing in a position that is not your own.

Sending TFM to relegation threatened teams, where the pressure is massive, it takes a manager brave bordering on insane to throw a inexperienced youngster in to the heart of midfield. So he was never likely to get the game time he needs in the position that he is best in. He would have been better off going abroad and playing in midfield in any top league than stuck in the EPL playing out of position at a time when he needs to be learning in his best position.

4.) 03 Jan 2019 17:58:36
Another potential star mis-managed by our calamitous ex-managers.

I've lost count how many false dawns we have had in recent years as we have no idea how to benefit players from loan moves and no clue how to blood them properly. Such a shame.

5.) 03 Jan 2019 18:23:03
Difficult to say which is the right view. Maybe TFM is another star we built up in hope but who is not anywhere near Utd standard. He did look good for a few games under LVG. I’m sure we will know soon enough if he’s good enough now he’s been sent back.

6.) 03 Jan 2019 19:54:21
Meant to say it was the wrong loan. As shappy said he should have gone abroad.

7.) 03 Jan 2019 20:11:46
Why not bring him home and rotate with matic and at Rb give him some game time between now and the end of the season. At least then we will know if he can be good enough or not. Let’s be honest he can’t be any worse than Valencia based on yesterday’s performance and at least TFM has a bit more pace than matic.

8.) 03 Jan 2019 21:17:50
Could he be a centre half

{Ed002's Note - He is not good enough for MU.}

9.) 03 Jan 2019 22:00:05
Neither are Jones and Smalling but they've been at the club for 8 years Ed002; rather see TFM over them two.

{Ed002's Note - as long as you are satisfied with complete failure - playing someone who is not good enough out of position.

10.) 03 Jan 2019 22:25:09
As with other young players TFM has sadly not developed and if he isn’t outstanding at a lower level club the chances are he just doesn’t have what it takes and is not going to make it. The fact he has not even established himself in lesser teams which says a lot. I always felt he was a holding midfield player and hopefully he will carve out a career but I can’t see it being in Uniteds first team now.

11.) 03 Jan 2019 22:00:05
Neither are Jones and Smalling but they've been at the club for 8 years Ed002; rather see TFM over them two.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with the other players and you want to play someone who is not good enough out of position.}

12.) 03 Jan 2019 23:51:12
Will he be sold this January?

13.) 04 Jan 2019 02:00:04
Always felt Tuanzebe shone more than TFM that season. He had Hazard in his pocket one game when playing at right back if I remember correctly.

14.) 04 Jan 2019 07:50:52
Sadly, for me it should be 'Bye bye TFM'

15.) 04 Jan 2019 12:48:03
Id like to see him get a chance on his proper position on loan to a more suitable team and then we can make a proper assessment.

16.) 04 Jan 2019 13:17:28
I would keep him in the squad. We need an energetic screening defensive midfielder to break up play, (as much as Matic has been good he isn't suited to a press) .

17.) 04 Jan 2019 16:33:03
Potential star is exactly it. But lots of young players can't step up to the next level. It could be due to mismanagement but most likely it is not. The coaching staff at United and at the loan clubs are unlikely to be wrong. I agree with Ed002. It's disappointing but he's almost certainly just not good enough.

18.) 04 Jan 2019 20:52:45
Villa interested In a loan deal for him, as a midfielder.



28 Nov 2018 16:55:14
People's choice to replace Mourinho?
Eddie Howe or Pochettino? and Why?


{Ed025's Note - for me becks the job is too big for howe and he would need a top quality DOF if he was to get the gig, pochettino is top quality and imagine what he could do with the budget he would get at united, he has premiership experience at the top level and is very forward thinking and his teams play good football, he would be my choice mate but im sure others would say different..

1.) 28 Nov 2018 17:22:49
As long as the next manager, Who ever it maybe, Plays good attacking football and gets fans loving our style of play again. Getting fed up up with all the negativity that Jose brings with him now.
Having said that, Knowing Woodward he will give Jose another contract extension.
Also Woodward stating we don't need results on the pitch for our sponsors to carry on paying us millions each year.
See if results matter Woodentop when we are in the bottom three.

2.) 28 Nov 2018 18:05:43
I would say Pochettino is more ready for a top job than How at the moment. I also feel Howe would require a really good structure behind the scenes to aide him. I think 3-4 years of Pochettino allowing him to freshen up the squad, and get them used to playing good football at a high tempo. Then when he goes back to Spain, which he will want to do at some point. How would be the potential ideal candidate.

3.) 28 Nov 2018 22:02:28
Pochettino for sure.

4.) 29 Nov 2018 08:54:30
I think poch will be too hard to get unfortunately.

Maybe appoint howe as manager and blanc as dof? Could even maybe have stam as assistant, might sort the defense out at least.

5.) 29 Nov 2018 09:24:38
Eddie Howe is a good manager but the United job might just be too soon in his career. And we certainly aren't in a position for another Moyes type fiasco. Having said that, Poch won't come easy given that he is under contract with Spurs for another 4 or so years. I do hope that the club retain Carrick and McKenna post Jose so that the continuity remains.

But before we make another appointment, whoever that may be, we need to make sure that we have the right structure in place to support the manager and also make sure that proper finances are available to help him turn the squad around as we all know that major changes are required to the playing staff to have us compete again.

6.) 29 Nov 2018 16:16:10
Neither. We should look on here for the next manager. Sift the posts to find the tactical acumen and motivation skills.

7.) 29 Nov 2018 15:47:55

Question to eds, would he leave spurs for utd though? surely tottenham won't let him go to a rival, if it ever did come about.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United has a coach so I am not sure how to answer this question.}

8.) 29 Nov 2018 18:37:19
I really like Howe, he has a very average squad playing good footy and in a very confortable position in the table, Poch on the other hand has a very strong squad failing to win anything for so many years already. One thing i know that whoever replaces the primitive one will make us look better. I just don't understand how some fans can be happy with what they are seeing from the team week in week out. Mou needs to go and Pogba, Sanchez and even Matic too.

9.) 29 Nov 2018 20:40:16
I wouldn't be disappointed with either, though Poch obviously has that bit more experience. Howe would need a good set-up behind him as others have said, but I like what I see with him. Intelligent and forward-thinking. Probably plump for Poch at this stage.

10.) 30 Nov 2018 13:18:45
Poch has all the attributes for me, a no brainer if we require a new gaffer.

11.) 02 Dec 2018 15:14:36
Big Sam hasn't a job at the moment!

12.) 02 Dec 2018 20:55:58
Id rather Eddie Howe personally i know he's not a popular choice as he's not a big name with a foreign surname, however he has built a club at Bournmouth that is playing very attractive football and he has built this club from L 2 up to the premier league. I just think he would bring our identity back for using the youth set up and playing the attacking flowing football we all want to see. To be honest nothing will happen until we cannot qualify for champions league as this cost the club and that's all the owners care about, we have an inept ceo a manager that won't change his ways and 15 players in the squad that are no better than mid table, all this together means we are where we are in the league for this reason.

13.) 02 Dec 2018 22:05:19
There is a present incumbent so the position is not open. Yet it is worrying that some believe the manager of Bournmouth is the answer to one of the biggest clubs in the world. We suffered with Moyes, who had managed a bigger club than Bournmouth. If I was to speculate I would ponder about Conte in present circumstances.

21 Jan 2019 16:10:40
Does anyone think if we haven't got rid of few players during previous managers stint with UTD we would be having a better and a complete squad right now?
Few Players like Depay, Blind, Di Maria, Will Keane, Chicharito would have provided that missing edge/ Depth to our team?

1.) 21 Jan 2019 16:44:30
If you re-write history maybe, none of them 5 were anywhere near good enough for us.

Memphis is the only one that could potentially improve us but we have players in his position and he wasn't good enough when he was here, he came a couple of years too early and was correct to leave.

The only player who left who I think would improve us now is Zaha, he is one of the best attacking players in the prem and would be great on our right wing in certain games.

2.) 21 Jan 2019 16:58:18
Maybe but I wouldn't have kept di Maria if he offered to play for free. Blind was slow but good cover, could slot in for matic to give him a rest. Depay was too soon but would be interesting to see where he'd fit now. Keane's always injured so no, but I've just snapped him up on my FM game. Hernandez good lad but he left because he wanted more first team minutes, if he was here he'd still be on the bench.

3.) 21 Jan 2019 17:28:03
Depay and Di Maria yes. Hernandez wouldve been good to keep as a squad player.

4.) 21 Jan 2019 18:26:14
If Hernandez was still here would rash have got his debut and chance? Probably not.

5.) 21 Jan 2019 18:52:55
"In certain games" is right GDS2. Loads of talent, inconsistent application.

6.) 21 Jan 2019 20:16:12
Zaha, like others have said, is at his best at Palace. He is happy there, the main man, and doesn’t have to work particularly hard to be an automatic pick.

He was, perhaps, unlucky to be here under Moyes, who didn’t know how to use him. But he couldn’t raise his game to convince anyone that he was capable of reaching the top level. Even at Cardiff, he was a disappointment.

The only one on that list I think would have any future here now is Depay. He was too young, and neither LVG or Jose were the right manager to get the best out of him. Would be a good option under Ole, and still has potential to get better.

7.) 22 Jan 2019 07:04:30
Rafael, Di Maria, Memphis, Chicharito and Zaha are all players that would improve our current squad.

8.) 22 Jan 2019 07:41:42
Di Maria would have fit in perfectly at Right Wing position under Ole.

9.) 22 Jan 2019 14:56:25
But di Maria never wanted to be here an couldn't wait to leave so shouldn't be in the discussion.



21 Jan 2019 12:52:11
Ole being Unbeaten so far means we won't be signing anyone in January?

At least link us to Sneijder/ Snyder/ Sneider or Gaitan.

1.) 21 Jan 2019 13:55:23
Sneider was spotted at the airport just today.

Amsterdam airport : )

2.) 21 Jan 2019 17:31:35
Surely our long term interest in Sneider will come to fruition this time!

3.) 21 Jan 2019 20:17:21
Are we going to sign Ronaldinho? Or is Bebe ripe for a homecoming?



14 Jan 2019 09:37:04
A brilliant display yesterday to get 3 points. But don't we feel that we were not very good in defending (2nd half) ?
DDG is not going to save us every game in this manner, one might get past him. We seriously need a defender. Jones lost Kane twice or thrice in the same way during corners.
I don't want to sound too negative here but this issue is for real.

1.) 14 Jan 2019 09:49:01
Yeah, Jones had a nightmare against Kane.
Koulibaly would be a fantastic partner for Lindelof.
He will be a threat from set pieces as well.

2.) 14 Jan 2019 10:26:47
A centre half and a right back transforms this current side onto a level that could top this league.

I hope we throw money at Koulibaly this window as it would, for me, ensure us of a top three finish.

3.) 14 Jan 2019 10:40:16
One of the most pleasing things to come out of the last few months is Lindelof.
He had a dodgy start and needed to rebuild his confidence. He had a decent world cup and brought that form back with him. He has played his way into first choice cb in my opinion. I still think him and Bailly could work. Not sure if he is staying though. I hope so. that's two powerful, athletic cb's who just need to cut silly mistakes out but a settled partner would probably take the pressure off them a bit. If we did go for Koulibaly, I would be very with those three rotating. I think Dalot will come good at rb. Once again, a settled partnership with a RW will only improve him.

There atmosphere around the club has been refreshing. We are looking forward to games instead of fearing them. We are by no means 'back' but it at least looks like we are going to give it a go in every game. Most of us are realistic and know we won't win every game but at least we are going to try to win now. that's the United way.

4.) 14 Jan 2019 10:49:46
Koulibaly is a top class centre back. He has fantastic ball playing ability from the back.
He is a colossus 6 ft 5, very few are bigger than him.
Whereas, Bailly is reckless most of the time.

5.) 14 Jan 2019 11:00:05
James, I don't think a bailly - lindelof partnership will work for us. As it stands at the moment every cross into our box has me worried. We need a defender with aerial presence who will dominate the opponents. Unfortunately I don't see that in any of our defenders. Lindelof needs this kind of partner to complement him. Smalling may have had this potential but never quite fulfilled it.

6.) 14 Jan 2019 11:17:18
Your right that defensively we did look suspect again. Not surprising really when every man and his dog can see we don't have the best options in defence.

DDG won't be able to bail us out like that every week, however, the 11 saves he made was the highest number of saves made by a goalkeeper in a single game since the 14 he made against Arsenal last year.

The point I'm subtly trying to make is we don't face that quality of opposition every week. For me Spurs have the best defence, and the third bast attack behind only City and Liverpool. So in theory we would only need him to bail us out like that against sides challenging for the title.

Also as the confidence grows and as the players settle into a new style of play, build offensive and defensive understanding the level of performances should only get better. Both offensively and defensively.

7.) 14 Jan 2019 11:41:46
A brilliant display? De Gea had to make 11 saves and spurs should have scored about 6 or 7!

Some of you have really lost your minds and forget what a brilliant display actually is!

That idiot Darren Fletcher calling it a tactical masterclass LOL a tactical masterclass would have been shutting spurs out and giving them no clear chances and not the freedom of the box!

8.) 14 Jan 2019 12:03:18
What constitutes a tactical masterclass is entirely dependent on the quality of players we have available.

With poor options in defence, the only way to shut them out completely would be to play 10 men behind the ball. But as we have seen this season with Mourinho not even that worked every time, or even occasionally in the end.

So Ole focused on what he could do with the players he had available. He used Rashford and Martial as wide split partnership meaning the centre backs had to either follow them out wide into the spaces opened up by Spurs advanced full backs or give them freedom. Lingard dropping into space, meant that Winks needed to try and pick him up. If he did then who picked up Pogba? Herrera was tasked with disrupting Spurs rhythm and got into the faces of Eriksen and Alli. With Matic picking up Kane if he dropped deep, and Jones picking him up when he was further forward.

Yes Spurs had 11 shots that DDG had to make a save for, 2 or three of those being world class, the others if made by Lloris nothing would have been said about them. We had 8 shots on target, Lloris made 7 saves.

So for all the brilliance of DDG he made 4 more saves than Lloris.

So I think its fair to say Ole got his tactics spot on, with the players available and the form and quality of Spurs I don't think he could have set up any differently that would have given him a better chance of getting the result.

He got that result, in a big game that matters Ole got the result that Pochettino on this occasion failed to.

So for that Ole does get the credit.

9.) 14 Jan 2019 12:06:37
Typical Liverpool fan :)

10.) 14 Jan 2019 12:24:41
Listen a win is a win lads fair play yous have won 5 in a row in the league which hats off for but the way some of you are talking is like it was the greatest tactical performance since fergie. Spurs gave bournemouth allsorts of chances they actually aren't that great at the back.

11.) 14 Jan 2019 12:49:48
That why we created chances and could have scored more goals ourselves. Defensively we are not great, your right DDG saved us but first half Ole out thought Poch, is why we was so good and why we scored, second we rode our luck, we are a few top players away in that back 4 of being able to keep top teams out but 1st half hats off to the team and to Ole who outfoxed Poch.

12.) 14 Jan 2019 13:38:29
Ole can do no wrong Shappy.

13.) 14 Jan 2019 14:38:24
Of course he can Shan, and when he does I'm sure many people will point it out. The site is always more vocal after a poor performance than a good one.

Unless you feel Ole has made mistakes? If so what mistakes do you feel Ole has made so far?



09 Dec 2018 19:34:53
Did anyone watch Tuanzebe against West brom?
If this guy was playing in some Dutch or German league we would've been ready to pay over the odds to get him.
Defensively he was solid and so calm in bringing the ball out of defence. Reminded me a bit of young Ferdinand.
He should definitely get in the squad next year imo.

1.) 09 Dec 2018 20:22:13
He is known as the Rochdale Rio. He should be in the squad next season maybe even january if we could clear one or two out.

2.) 10 Dec 2018 08:32:23
Always rated the lad. Really hope he makes it at Utd.

3.) 10 Dec 2018 09:39:38
I would be happy to let Smalling, Rojo and Jones leave, then bring on one new CB and promote Tuanzebe.

4.) 10 Dec 2018 10:11:25
Agreed Shappy, if we can move those 3 on, promote Tuanzebe and sign one I'd be happy. I'd prefer a more experienced top class centre back aged between 27-31 to guide Tuanzebe, Bailly and Lindelof on rather than sign another 22-25 year old.

5.) 10 Dec 2018 17:42:57
Agree Mort. Isn't that exactly what Jose wanted, before Woodward imposed his veto on buying 'more experienced' players?



03 Dec 2018 16:20:20
I was 8 years Old playing for my school team in cotton T-shirts when One my friends Dad came to watch School games wearing a Red Jersey with Beckham Written on it.
Later i spoke to my friend saying your dad's T-Shirt was Awesome.
He said its of a player who scored from Half way and plays for Manchester United, they are currently the best team in England.

I was like, how can i watch this team play as we didn't have a Television set, i told my dad about this and he was like we'll buy a TV soon.
For Two years my dad saved money to buy a second hand Television, i don't remember which was the first game i saw, but ever since that day
i have hardly missed any game. The more i saw the more i fell in love with this team.
We never lost a game, we just ran out of time, the belief of never losing a game was always there in sight.
This club had everything that a Kid looks out for when he is growing up.
Had some really wonderful moments as a Fan and things are really tough these days but nothings going to change our love for this team.
Just need to remember why we started loving this team so much.

Are all the stories enough for my Kid to follow the same love as i do, we will rise back from where we are and get on top soon?

I am already ready with the stories anyways :P

Busby babes.

1.) 03 Dec 2018 17:53:26
We were bound to experience a down patch.

ED002 warned us that we might have to expect not qualifying for European football.

As a fan, I realise we have been spoilt we the success we've had under SAF.

Onwards and forwards (backwards for now) . It's like trying to hold onto a mechanical bull ;)

2.) 03 Dec 2018 20:13:57

I started supporting in August 68, I don’t remember anything before that. For years until 1976 I lived off stories of the Babes, the greatness of Charlton Law Best and Edwards. The TV was black and white and there were no Premier League years to reminisce on. I watched the fading glory of the three greatest players of the era. I watched Charlton retire, Law go to City, I was there when Law backheeled in 74, I was there one day to see Georgie walk on the pitch. It was all downhill, yet my late brother assured me things would get better. I trusted him like your lad will trust you. It was a badge of honour to support when we were garbage, to live through times when City and Liverpool were better. Keep the faith and he will.

3.) 03 Dec 2018 21:50:07
Brilliant little post red man, that's what a supporter does.

4.) 03 Dec 2018 22:55:08
Beck's I can't get my head around you hadn't a TV untill 1998,
Now I know things can be hard for some families and I can identify with that, and I'm not in any way judging you or anyone i'm not in to that sort of things.
By the way I remember watching that goal like it was yesterday, you just knew a good player had to come out of that moment.

5.) 04 Dec 2018 08:52:58
Leahy12, yeah everyone has hard times but we fight through it. That's what we do at UTD.

6.) 04 Dec 2018 11:18:15
Great stories! Mine is less interesting but still my story. I was about 11 years (93/ 94) when going for a long drive with my folks and the radio station was tuned into a Utd game. Had no idea who we were playing and all i knew about Utd was it is a football team. All i kept hearing on the radio was Keane this and Keane that (wins the ball, what a tackle etc) and then a name i found funny at that age, 'Butt gets the ball' 'what a pass by Butt'. Utd won the match dominantly and I started asking my folks about utd during that drive but they were not of much help, so i started reading about the team, watching highlights of matches because we hardly ever got live games at that time in my neck of the woods. But i will never forget that radio commentary and how that got me hooked to this great team!

There is a thing with Lozano, railing against authority during his time with Pachuca, being involved in on-field incidents with little provocation, and picking up eight red cards despite at a young age: five with Pachuca, one with the Mexico U-23 team, and two red cards in his first season at PSV. Although a good prospect, i would rather move away from such hot heads, something that the team doesn't want right now.

First would sell Sanchez, Mata, Pereira, Rojo, Darmian, Fred and even Lukaku (Since Rashford would be our main striker and we have Martial to cover him)

Players to target.

CB - DeLigt/ Koulibaly
wing back - Sessegnon and Wan Bissaka
RW - Hueng Min Son
CM x2 - Neves and Houssem Aouar
Backup Stiker - Raul Jimenez

Also we have plenty of young talent from the academy that is knocking on the first team'd door.

Stand-United, Verratti is often criticized for his unhealthy lifestyle and his injury record is of some concern. He has played 25+ games just once in his last 4 seasons.

Silva/ Marquinhos for Bailly and Mbappe for Mata/ Sanchez, Rest i am good.

Young will be gradually replaced by Dalot and Shaw has been doing decent.

As for yesterday they figured out one thing " STOP POGBA STOP UTD"

Recently read somewhere that Shaw has more successful crosses than Chilwell and Robertson, would only invest in a Cb, CM, RW and a RB.
