Pogba transfer to be investigated by FIFA. Seems fishy this has been anounced 2 days before a Euro semi final.

Brendan81

{Ed004's Note - or it just happens to coincide with contract leaks? I'm guessing it's to do with Raiola's fee}


1.) 09 May 2017 21:08:02
Why does it have anything to do with Thursday?

Ed - am I right in thinking Raiola's fee was settled by Juve in the end, or is it not that simple?

{Ed004's Note - I am honestly not sure. By briefly looking at the leaks I think us, Juve and Pogba paid him}


2.) 09 May 2017 21:12:28
Over 40 mill was it? Absolutely bonkers.

{Ed004's Note - Apparently so}


3.) 09 May 2017 21:15:24
Well UEFA and FIFA don't really like the English do they? Nice little way to unsettle the favourites who happen to be English.

I like a conspiracy :-)


4.) 09 May 2017 21:23:32
We also settled a 2 mill debt of pogbas cough cough .
The fact raiola's is making 40 odd mil from the deal is a joke different form of 3rd party ownership .

{Ed004's Note - I thought Pogba paid Raiola 2 million?}


5.) 09 May 2017 21:44:56
I think it said united payed 2.2mil that pogba owed to one of raiolas company's.
Issues said to be conflict of interest he represented the player united and juventus .
Will all come out in the wash.

DeGea's house has gone up for sale apparently. Let silly season truly begin 😃.

Brendan81

1.) 23 Apr 2017 07:43:07
Lol I heard he rented anyway. 😂.


2.) 23 Apr 2017 07:48:15
And pple don't believe he is going for £70m. Ain't no fire without a spark. Sad if true but we will survive. We are Man Utd.
Even if Arsene Wenger say we will crash without Ibra we will rise again. We will prove these jealous dumb buns wrong. Wenger just can't take it that Jose will be successful here. He'd wished he was taking over but unfortunately he is not qualified.
Things happened for a reason. Without Ibra Jose will be challenged to use all his brain cells and it will give opportunities to those who works hard for Jose.


3.) 23 Apr 2017 08:23:05
Ironically I think we will be better without ibra going forward because it gives us more flexibility. When ibra plays, we cater for him. Without him I think Rashford gets the nod at 9 and potentially we are a much more dangerous and potent front 4.


4.) 23 Apr 2017 09:05:14
I think Wenger needs to worry about his own team first before criticising others

Sad regarding Zlatan, but that's the harsh reality of football, just need to concentrate on getting Champions League football via winning the Europa League or finishing in the top 4.


5.) 23 Apr 2017 09:59:11
We should try to win the Europa for Ibra and let him and Rooney hold the cup together. Two greats.
Would then be nice to use that to slap Wengers mouth for talking too much. Better if we finish above Arsenal.
Also agree with angel that without Ibra our attack will have plenty of pace. So just need to focus on scoring accuracy.


6.) 23 Apr 2017 10:06:35
Ibra hasn't even been at the club a full season there are one or 2 who deserve to lift the cup before him.


7.) 23 Apr 2017 12:08:40
666 where did you read this whole ddg off for 70mn no one reliable is reporting it, also the house sale rumours come from ever reliable sun.


8.) 23 Apr 2017 13:34:59
News from Asia CSM. Betting contacts putting bets out.


9.) 23 Apr 2017 15:07:21
ohh, hopefully they aren't reliable, losing ddg would be a big problem.


10.) 24 Apr 2017 10:30:57

LVG to sign a new contract, I know a few on here who'd be delighted with that, were it to happen.

Brendan81

{Ed025's Note - i know a lot who would not brendan..


1.) 13 Sep 2015 08:58:45
Surely not ed? I'm sure Beast, and the like, would be delighted!

{Ed025's Note - LVG is...moyes with money..brendan..


2.) 13 Sep 2015 09:22:53
I hope not. I'm not saying I want LVG sacked or anything but 3 years is enough. His role was to get us back in the CL and potentially challenge for trophies and by the end of next season I feel he will have accomplished that but alluding to a post Shappy wrote a couple of weeks ago, he has got rid of players who were perhaps not good enough and lowered the average age which means we might well have a bright future after his tenure. While we may have a bright future following some of the things LVG has done, he shouldn't be the one to manage us following the end of next season.

{Ed025's Note - its very easy to lower average age stats Rj...you just buy 2 young untried forwards for squillions of pounds mate..


3.) 13 Sep 2015 09:39:21
I just can't see it, surely we can't be this incompetent. It makes me wonder if the decision makers watch the games.


4.) 13 Sep 2015 09:44:58
Well that's true Ed but he's looked to have a team where the majority of our squad are mid to late twenties and shipped out many players who most would say were not of the quality required. Look at Nani, Anderson, Cleverley, RVP, Rafael, Lindegaard, Evans etc. He's far from my ideal manager and he's made some daft decisions but I think he's done well in getting rid of players who shouldn't have even been there when he took over.

{Ed025's Note - he has done well in that department Rj, but i still dont feel hes the right man long term mate..


5.) 13 Sep 2015 10:20:37
L.E.G.E.N.D chaps, don't question it.


6.) 13 Sep 2015 11:42:44
I hope it happens personally.


7.) 13 Sep 2015 11:48:49
He's always been pretty vocal that he was going to retire after this contract - I don't think he'll change his mind.


8.) 13 Sep 2015 13:50:47
Ed it won't be long term he's just here to sort the mess out so the next chap has easier job


9.) 13 Sep 2015 15:50:41
Common 025, LVG is much better than Moyes. He knows the game inside out and doesn't look like a lost little boy that's out of his depth. His knack of upsetting and falling out with players is a little worrying, but aside from that I think he was and still is exactly what we need.

{Ed025's Note - i think he may be a short term answer prodigal, seems a bit set in his ways to me mate and not everyones cup of tea..


10.) 13 Sep 2015 18:52:48
May be the decision makers think that Giggs needs more time as someone's deputy. May be even Giggs was in favour of it.


11.) 14 Sep 2015 18:58:25
I think giggs needs to manage a smaller club before we ever consider him for the utd job.


 

 

10 Jun 2015 14:16:58
Rumours that Real have tabled a bid of £73m for Courtois. I don't believe it is accurate, but if it was, it would be a strange decision on their part, unless DeGea has told them he isn't leaving, which is seemingly unlikely. Silly season is well and truly upon us!

Brendan81

1.) 10 Jun 2015 14:55:15
How on Earth can u think that a club can offer 73m for a keeper ?! I would like to know where did you read it ?!


2.) 10 Jun 2015 15:34:37
Roughly €100m so possibly €50m fee and €10m p/year contract for 5 years? Ok I'm clutching at straws here.


3.) 10 Jun 2015 15:46:41
I wouldn't put most things past Real Madrid, but that one might be a little too far. Definitely going for 'unbeveliable'.


4.) 10 Jun 2015 16:10:22
I really don't think there's a club in the world that would pay more than £30m for a keeper (excluding wages etc.). That's my opinion.


5.) 10 Jun 2015 16:40:47
I don't either Ziko, but this is Madrid! Plus they would get a good 15 years of what is a top quality goalkeeper. If it was just a fee and not wages, which I can't believe for a second, that would be just short of £5m per season plus wages on top, a lot but not if he helps them win a few leagues and CL's in that time,I suppose. Still bull doo doo's though I'd say.


6.) 10 Jun 2015 19:22:01
After all, I'm very sad about him leaving. Doesn't really matter to me for how much 1m or 100m. It's a shame because he will be the best keeper in the world for many years. And I rate him over Neuer and Courtois, and not because he is (was) our player.


7.) 10 Jun 2015 20:09:24
I don't believe that juve and Buffon subscribe to your theory ziko.


8.) 11 Jun 2015 01:54:37
Juve spent more on a gk many moons ago?

Oh no I must be wrong because Juve only purchase work class midfielders for free!


9.) 11 Jun 2015 10:00:52
At the end the correct rumour was that Chelsea put the price tag of 73m, not Real offer :)


10.) 11 Jun 2015 15:54:15
Paper talk to hurry DDG into pushing to leave. Maybe utd won't budge from a price and real trying to penny pinch so piling pressure on DDG to help them get a better deal


 

 

20 May 2015 08:33:59
I feel for you Ed, he really is crap. How he has lasted this long at United is astonishing. He'll fit right in at Everton though ;-)

Brendan81

{Ed025's Note - thanks for that brendan..he is one of the worst i have seen mate, but still ahead of rojo, mcnair and jones.. :)


1.) 20 May 2015 19:29:50
That took forever to come through :-)

Jones has gone backwards hugely, McNair is only a kid so a bit unfair, Rojo will be a good squad player for us. I quite like Everton though, so I hope Sunderland stay up and buy him like they do most of our not good enough defenders :-)

{Ed025's Note - so do i brendan.. :)

Take note England senior team.


2.) 11 Jun 2017 14:28:43
I was made up after watching that. A cracking performance form the lads.


3.) 11 Jun 2017 14:30:04
This is what we've been missing for so many years, a winning mentality from an early age.

I think we would benefit from introducing a rule whereby any player under 21 cannot be called up to the senior team so they have to earn their stripes with their age group. There would be the odd occasion where it would work against us but in the long run the players would benefit from playing together for a longer period and more minutes on the pitch.


4.) 11 Jun 2017 15:00:27
Great achievement. Proud day for them all and their families.


 

 

09 Jun 2017 18:16:42
Just a quick post about Morata. I keep seeing people saying things like 'why would we spend X amount on a player who was only bought for €30m last summer', and it's getting a bit annoying. Real Madrid had a buy back clause at that amount if I'm not mistaken, otherwise he would still be at Juventus now I'd say, or would have been sold elsewhere for quite a bit more. Real saw he'd done ok and probably bought him back to make more money which looks like they will.

Now I don't want united paying stupid money for him, anything around £50m in this day would be ok I guess, which is ridiculous to say. Question him as a player if you don't feel he is right for us, but don't beat him and the club because he had a clause in his contract set at a price and now will be sold for more. Hardly either parties fault is it?

Brendan81

1.) 09 Jun 2017 18:53:18
Jose's a fan, if he is spending big for him then he sees something that will work for us, let's crack on and get things done.


2.) 09 Jun 2017 19:28:26
Jose hasn't got a clue tho AJH, you must have read that on here this past season.


3.) 09 Jun 2017 20:49:46
Disagree. RM decided that at the end of the 2016 season Morata will be worth £26m. Now they are deciding at the end of the 2017 that he is worth £70m.

Now because MU are interested our fans are finding ways to justify it. Take off the rose tinted glasses. 2 weeks ago there's not one person on here who would've been happy with paying so much money for Morata but now it's actually happening I'm seeing people clutch at straws to justify the price.

Form someone who generally isn't bothered how much money we spend, this is an exception and is ridiculous. We are buying RM's backup for close to world record fees.


4.) 09 Jun 2017 21:29:27
It was a buyout price not what Real valued him at. They sold him for €20m and put a €30m buyback in the contract. The buyback was a good value price for a potentially very good young player. Last summer they knew they'd get more for him if they sold him on, I think Arsenal and others were looking at him at that time, so bought him back. For Real it made huge sense. It cost them €10m on the transfer fee, but saved them 2 years wages, plus he got more experience and in another league/ country. Now he will be sold for £50m+, can't fault Real on this one.

Also, I think you'll find my post was just aimed at people, like yourself, mixing up what he could have cost last summer to someone like Arsenal etc, compared to the price real paid, which was set in the contract and no doubt a lower price.

The argument that people come out with for not buying him because the difference in price between €30m and €60m or whatever is plain stupid, as last summers price wasn't a true value of him at that time.

I'd personally go for Belotti but if we get Morata then so be it.


5.) 09 Jun 2017 21:37:04
Wazza
As soon as we are linked to a player he becomes world-class and just what we need .

Decent player imo not great but if we sign him great, I hope he kicks on .
Would Madrid be looking for 70 mil if it wasn't united, who cares it's the club money .


6.) 10 Jun 2017 08:16:21
Brendan. The buy back price is a fee that both RM and Juve greed would be a fair valuation for a player after further development over the time of the contract. Take off the rose tinted glasses and see what's in front of you. Another 12 months on the substitutes bench coming on to score against minnows does not treble a players value. What trebles a players value is when MU declare an interest and people trying to justify it are blinkered.

Jred is absolutely right. We get linked with a player and suddenly he's world class. Morata is not world class. Benzema keeps him out of the team and he is not world class, nor would I take him either.


7.) 10 Jun 2017 09:38:52
What has the price of a football transfer got to do with any of you unless we have the CFO of United hidden amongst our ranks? Doesn't effect the price of my season tickets one bit (yet) .

Jose loves Morata and that's good enough for me. Sign him up.


8.) 10 Jun 2017 11:47:34
Depends on the price agreed for the sale between Real and Juve. €20m for a young player highly regarded is pretty cheap, which is probably why the buy back price was set very low. Imagine Rashford being sold for that price now? This site would go into meltdown!

To have rose tinted glasses I think I would need to want the player. TBH I'd buy others before him so that argument doesn't really work on this occasion. By all means say he isn't worth X amount or you don't want him, but don't base that argument on a lower price paid last year agreed 2 years previously. Pretty sure Arsenal were rumoured to be after him last year for about £40m. Prices for all players have gone mental this summer with all the extra tv money, not just for united.


 

 

15 May 2017 22:48:10
Not united related, but I hope that Middlesbrough pull out a good performance against Liverpool on Sunday. Never really wanted Arsenal to win before, but I'd rather them in the top 4 than the Scousers. I like Wenger too and can't be doing with Klopp the more I seen of him. He's as annoying as Conte who bounces all over the place and Mourinho who's a miserable tw*t.

Brendan81

1.) 15 May 2017 23:10:24
Brendan I think they will win 2-1.


2.) 15 May 2017 23:22:16
Who middlesborough? Yeah me too, a definite
2-1, sounds familiar ;-)


3.) 16 May 2017 00:36:30
You boys just focus on your game. Similar situation to us - one off match and over whelming favourites to win.
Though with your favoured approach of playing a back 6
I can see you playing for a win on penalties from about the 20th minute. 😉
Anyway, good luck chaps, if we all got in it might just be the start of a renaissance of English football in Europe, like it was 10 years before.


4.) 16 May 2017 01:01:14
Bobby,

If you manage 4th you will likely be two games away from champions league football, whatever happens we are only one game away.


5.) 16 May 2017 07:25:16
Ha! Fair point GDS, but you know what I meant.


6.) 16 May 2017 08:24:26
Frankly speaking as long as we beat Ajax and get into CL then I don't care about Liverpool or the arse. We need to do our job against Ajax and Bobby is right as we'll probably score in 20th minute then park the bus for the rest of the game.
Ajax are no mugs. They're young and inexperienced but they can play. If the bookies are making us hot favourites then I totally disagree. We never score a lot of goals. So it will be a tight match.


 

 

10 May 2017 18:07:33
Rooney says he wants to stay at the club next season. Sorry but he is 4 years past useful and needs to leave in July. He is ruining the great things he did for us by hanging on when he is of no use what so ever.

Of course he says that in a press conference before the game.

When Rooney announces he's leaving it will be in a press conference specifically for that announcement. Anything he says today is irrelevant.


4.) 10 May 2017 19:02:01
Always Ken he is top manager, nobody is perfect tho.


5.) 10 May 2017 20:07:29
Correct. I don't think I have ever read a post from anybody on here that suggests he is.
If we win the europa league imo this season will have been a very good season not withstanding a very disappointing league campaign.
I think this squad could have finished in the top 4. But we are a long way from being title challengers simply because we do t have enough high quality players.
A lot of them have been here for 3 or 4 years and have failed miserably under 3 coaches playing 3 different styles to mount any type of challenge for the league. Every team above us can say they could have nicked wins here or there.
On Jose there is plenty not to like this season in particular his demeanour and really in the last few matches the ITY defensive play. However I am of the belief that if he gets back to the CL. The Top table so to speak where he believes the club and he himself belong I believe we will see a different character it will re-inspire him.
The squad is short on quality he will sign 2 or hopefully 3 top players and 3 or 4 players that he believes are better than what he has. My caveat to that is that the players in our squad are not bad players but they are not what Jose needs either in character or ability to play train and understand and act like he wants.
I don't care who these guys are or how much or how little they cost or what their names are I only care that they can do the job asked of them and that they compliment the players they are bought to play with.
Many players look world class when they are playing in the right team at the right time and all is clicking. There are possibly less than 10 that will come and carry on or even improve no matter where they play. I think we need one of those and for me greizman is one of those 10. If we could compliment that with a top cb and holding midfield player and a couple proven winners 002 mentioned matuidi aurrier matic willian as those sort of player to replace the likes of carrick young Jones Rooney darmian i think mata whom i like was mentioned then imo they would jump ahead of the likes of fellaini smalling rojo as regular starters.


6.) 10 May 2017 20:25:25
It will be a very good window with grease-man amd matuidi!

Lindelof added to that and that's a different team right there!


7.) 10 May 2017 20:49:28
So it wasn't moyes fault or lvg fault it was the players? We where maybe to hard on the previous managers then

Could of probably should of got top 4 this season even with so many players not really turning up.

Like every other team in the league we will buy players in the summer but the vast majority of the squad and the starting 11 will be the same as this season .
If we push for the title these players that aren't good enough will have to prove a few wrong .
Ddg martial rash herrera miki pogba tony v bailly will be main stays of the first 11 Ibra would of been before his knee, they are all very good players far better than a mid table team .
That said there is no guarantee that they will or that any new signings will come in and do great .

I don't think pogba has been amazing and miki has struggled Imo. Again these are both very good players just like a few of our others .

I don't think any team in the league have much better.
I sincerely hope they show it next season and prove a few wrong.

{Ed004's Note - We have a few very good players in this current team but the balance still isn't right. We need to address both the chemistry out wide in our team and get a consistent spine to the team. We haven't had a proper defensive partnership all season due to injuries. I would only be confident going into next season with De Gea, Valencia and Bailly as regulars, similarly in midfield with Pogba and Herrera and up top nobody has staked a claim to be a regular except maybe Rashford. So I can see why Jose wants a lot of changes this summer. Hopefully, Shaw, Mkhitarian and Martial improve significantly in preseason and the rest of this season and hold down a regular spot}


8.) 10 May 2017 20:50:28
Forget to say I think this is the best squad we have had for a while.


9.) 10 May 2017 21:19:28
Ken you don't care who we sign as long as we sign someone?
Matic Imo is no better than the wig and you can't stand him .

If Jose needs to be in the cl to be inspired then it's no wonder united have been so flat this season.
I'm not buying that at all .

Have these players really failed miserabley?
5th place and the FA cup last year with out pogba miki bailly and Ibra .

Against what we have done with the same squad as last year plus them 4 .
Surly Jose has better players than lvg had and they both had miles better than the hapless moyes .

Lvg should of done better don't forget he had proven winners like Di Maria and Falcao and so should Jose Imo.
But next season is a new season and fresh start.


10.) 10 May 2017 21:25:29
Ed hopefully our players play well including any new signings .
People talk about wingers but Jose knew the players he had and didn't buy one .
We have played with 3 attackers like Barcelona do as apposed to wingers .

We just like every other team won't have 11 players who are all supper stars playing at the top of there game.
And not everyone of our new signings will do well

Every team in Europe will make changes this summer.

{Ed004's Note - Hopefully we develop a clear style of play for next season and Jose can work on the team over the preseason. I think getting a proper preseason in this summer could make a huge difference. I've said all this before but we will will look a lot better once we get a solid partner for Bailly and a left back that plays every week. Ideally next season we will have Valencia/Semedo + Griezmann on one side a new lb/Shaw + Martial/Rashford on the other side. Get a holding midfielder and play Herrera/Mkhitaryan + Pogba together. Really need to get a consistent team so they can learn to play well with each other}


11.) 10 May 2017 21:36:39
Do you think jred I don't think martial or Tony v or herrera will be mainstays and I have my doubts about rash starting more than half our games next season.
I'm a huge Herrera supporter but if we play 2 in midfield I have a suspicion he will be 3rd choice and if we play 3 he will be 4th. Which will mean he will get plenty of football just think he won t be 1st choice. I just think Jose will put a bit more muscle in there. Matic matuidi brozivic fabhino all mentioned by 002 yesterday all have a bigger physical presence than Herrera so I think Jose will go that way. He is also not proposing to pay 30m for semedo to warm the bench so Tony might get to play half the games at a push. But it would give a great 2sum to pick from. Martial has huge talent but was poor this season so needs to hit the ground running.
Jose teams have tradionally been great front runners so a hot start next season is a must. That would also help his demeanour no end I think.
I tend to agree with you ed004 we have a few very good players but far too much mediocrity and not enogh inbetween plus a couple of near freeloaders that don't contribute anywhere near enough.


12.) 10 May 2017 21:53:34
Ken
We will see next season Ken.
I'm always reading who is isn't a Jose player .
It always seems to be the players the poster does or doesn't like .

Jose seems to like fellaini people seem to forget when they talk about our midfield, I think because they don't rate him themselves .
Ed said carrick could get a new contract if we don't sign a cm, cm didn't sound that big an issue.


13.) 10 May 2017 21:59:01
I don't think rash is a Jose type striker but he is young playing very well English and from come through the club there will be pressure to play
Jose has mentioned on several times his attitude is fantastic he seems to like him .
Obviously you disagree but I can't be bothered going on about it or the rest.
We will see next season all we can do is get behind the manager and players .
Even if we don't rate any of them .
I'm counting on a good few proving u wrong.


14.) 10 May 2017 22:21:23
Once again not reading p r o p e r l y .
I rate rash highly but think he is not going to play every game next season be great if he started 30 which I hope will be about half the games. If we sign a c. f. he will play less there and fight and prob win the fight with martial for the left spot.

I said I like Herrera but fear that Jose does not. fellaini Jose played a lot this season but if we strengthen he won't play as much I would think. The only thing that fellaini proved me wrong in was that he played more than I thought he would so kudos to him for displaying a really good attitude, he certainly didn't play any better than I thought he would and he will be delighted too its his 2nd highest league finish ever.

{Ed004's Note - This depends on who is signed but I'd be happy with us going into next season with Herrera and Mkhitaryan competing against each other for the 3rd spot in midfield alongside Pogba and a new DM. Herrera would probably play when we need to defend more often however Mkhitaryan would play vs teams we will be attacking a lot. Periera and Fellaini as cover}

Ken
you said the wig would be sold in the summer and then sold in Jan
You really have an issue with being wrong, is that what all the comments about this season being a bigger achievement than winning the league by 11 points and u working for boca juniors about?
It's just excuse after excuse
I'm cracking up, your comments / arguments today have been great .
Again judging a player by where he has finished in the league or by what he has won 😂
This seems to be your latest fad to prove a silly point .

We had a cf this season that played every single minute if fit .
Rash played plenty.
He has played a couple of games on the left many on the rw

We will see next season I hope a few prove you wrong again, in the mean time I'm going to leave it at that it's like talking to a kid .
Night peace out.

Yes ed that would make sense. I'm a big Herrera fan but I just have a niggling feeling that Jose would rather a more physical presence and that Herrera would play the SUPPORTING role to whomever his preferred 2 or 3 are in midfield.
If greizman were to sign I would suggest that a 4231 accommodates him best as the SUPPORTING striker but he can also operate high or wide. So pogba and one other with Herrera and fellaini as back up. My hope is fabhino but it's probably 50/ 50 matuidi and matic also mentioned and the Croatian chap at inter by 002 so if any of those sign along with greizman then Herrera may suffer a bit.
I'm going tomorrow night. I'm really looking forward to it. The summer would be so much better with this trophy in the cabinet. Let's hope wet make the final.

{Ed004's Note - We really need to win the Europa so hopefully you have a good night tomorrow night. I think Herrera is a player that is liked and trusted by Mourinho. He's gotten motm a couple of times now vs top 6 opposition and really puts a shift in. Hopefully whatever DM is signed will offer the physical presence Jose needs but currently Herrera and Pogba don't exactly get bullied in midfield. If Griezmann is signed I think he is being signed for the right side spot. All season we have given freedom to whoever plays on the right. Mata, Lingard and Mhitaryan all drift in and roam all game with Valencia providing the width (Links to Semedo who is very attacking supports this theory as well). Griezmann is quicker and far more clinical than all those mentioned and puts in a massive shift defensively. When we play a midfield 3 Herrera drifts wide throughout the game as well and Mkhitaryan could do that easily enough as well so there would always be width}

Samedo would be key to that plan. So much depends on a positive end to the season. I hope those on the way out go out on a high and those staying embrace the challenge.

Ed0025 told you we'd do them today 😜. Good game and performance to. Perfect all round.

{Ed025's Note - you were right brendan and it was well deserved mate, great energy from the guys today..


1.) 16 Apr 2017 18:06:28
Very well deserved ed yeah. Another good result for you guys yesterday too. You'll finish above Arsenal at this rate.

{Ed025's Note - a bit like united i think we have left it a bit late brendan mate..


2.) 16 Apr 2017 18:13:13
The best thing is watching Souness choking on the fact we won.

He just cannot admit we played well. Everything is a covert insult. "They nullified" "played well in defence"

Just pay respect to the team, they played well in all areas of the pitch.

Marvellous.

Jones is the better player of the two but never fit long enough. Pointless keeping either when we have some good youngsters coming through. Give them a chance in the games where a change is needed.

If we want him then offer the €100m and see if he signs on the dotted line. If not then he can piss off. Hate all the will he won't he bullsh*t. He has a buyout, or however it is worded, and they will want every Euro of that and rightly so. If we want him then it is straight forward, let's then see if he wants to come and put it to bed quickly.

I've heard that the surprise will be re-signing Cleverley. Best move we could make, for me. I think Jose has realised that allowing him and Pogba to leave were terrible decisions for the team, and having brought Pogba back, I think he has decided to do the same with Cleverley. He could be the difference between winning the league and not next season.

I quite fancy a 3, 5, 7, 9, 11. With a side order of 13, 15 and 17.

I'd say with four new players we'll run out 5-1 winners. They are bound to score one with Ronaldo in the team.

Since I read that he 'apparently' wants to leave, I have been thinking if I would want him to return or not. I've gone from no to yes, back to no again, then yes, then no. I've settled on yes now. It would be a lot of money in fee, but get Rooney and Zlatan off the books and his wages are more than covered. He'd get goals guaranteed, and 90% of our draws last season would have been wins, where could we have ended up last season with just that one addition?

We would make money from him being here which would help with the transfer fee, and we would have one of the two real world class stars at the club, which for Woody and the Glazers would be ideal for doing what they do best, securing even more sponsorship deals globally.

That said, it won't happen and he will be at Madrid next season.
