Any truth that we are in for draxler?


{Ed002's Note - Draxler was offered to two sides by his agent without the permission of PSG who are not looking to sell him.}

1.) 20 Aug 2017 13:44:49
Not United related but if any of the eds are around, do you have any idea if PSG are looking to offload any players to get in line with FFP?
There was news that they were looking to bring Fabinho and Mbappe.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, there are plenty available.}

Could ozil to us happen? What your opinion guys.


{Ed002's Note - Try the Sharkopod.}

Sorry ed002's was looking more of the opinion of everyone on here. Sorry for the confusion.

{Ed002's Note - That is fine, People can share their opinion.}

It could, he is an excellent player. I don’t know if he is quite the right player for us though. We have creative No.10’s in Mkhitaryan and Mata, yet neither seem to offer the physicality/ work rate that Jose prizes in his players. I think Ozil falls into that same category. We have seen over the last couple of games how we are transformed offensively when a hard working No.10 such as Lingard plays. I think there are better options out there for us than Ozil.

3.) 04 Dec 2017 10:06:47
Özil would get hammered by fans even more than he is now if he joined us I would imagine.

4.) 04 Dec 2017 16:22:29
I could see Ozil at United I think he’d be protected from the abuse for lack of defensive work as you play relatively defensively anyway so I think it could be well suited. Would you guys be happy with the signing?

5.) 04 Dec 2017 22:36:40
Yes i can see it happening. he's a talented player and judging by comments from Ed Woodward this type of transfer would appeal given Mesut also has a large social media following.



06 Nov 2017 11:10:32
When is Pogba back we are lost without him.


{Ed001's Note - he is due back after the international break.}

1.) 06 Nov 2017 12:18:37
Thank God we really are list without him. Thanks for the quick response.

Ashley Young very good again today.




12 Sep 2017 21:39:58
Anyone else think young was good tonight.


{Ed004's Note - Very good}

1.) 12 Sep 2017 21:44:12
Very good. Fellani motm for me. matic very calm great player.

2.) 12 Sep 2017 22:48:42
Really good.

3.) 12 Sep 2017 22:59:55
I must say it was nice to see a full back taking his man on and putting a cross in instead of going back or to the side. Big fan of valencia but hope he was watching tonight.

4.) 13 Sep 2017 01:24:23
Unfortunately, old dogs can't learn new tricks.

5.) 13 Sep 2017 01:06:30
Leahy totally agree about Fellaini. He played very well. We just have to temper things by remembering it was against a poor team. Looking forward it will be much much harder against the top teams. Be interesting to see how he plays against Everton on Sunday if selected.

6.) 13 Sep 2017 04:06:50
I think Mata was excellent too.

7.) 13 Sep 2017 09:32:01
Young was excellent last night. Finally someone who can cross the ball and what a difference it made.

I hope Jose keeps him in the team for the weekend and leaves Valencia at the training ground to practice his crossing. I don't understand the high regard for Valencia ("best RB in the league etc") . I think he's a limited player with a decent engine; nothing more.



05 Sep 2017 22:27:29
Well leahy what ya think of that tonight? Better performance but same story.


1.) 05 Sep 2017 23:47:51
Good performance but when ireland go behind a goal it's hard to see them getting anything out of a game.
Have to win the next 2 games.

2.) 06 Sep 2017 09:31:54
Well Wales v Ireland is important next lads. Wales winning games which is important from my point of view. What's the play off situ eds, is it all second place teams?

3.) 06 Sep 2017 11:47:47
WRD, not all second place teams get through to the play offs.

As there's 9 groups, the second place team with the worst record do not qualify for a play off spot. It's close, and there's still games to go, but as it stands it would be either Wales or Bosnia that would suffer.

4.) 06 Sep 2017 12:01:42
Nope, I think it's the best 8 2nd placed teams.

5.) 06 Sep 2017 12:47:11
Eight of the nine group runners up qualify with the team with the lowest points in second place not qualifying . However points won against the sixth place team in a group will not count in the final calculation, in Wales and Ireland's case that would be Moldova.

6.) 06 Sep 2017 13:47:47
dont worry leahy, we always find a way, anything is possible with the blessed saint martin in charge.

7.) 06 Sep 2017 14:16:23
There are countless possible permutations but the most likely is Ireland must win both remaining games and hope Bosnia don't beat Belgium .
Wales could make it with 4 points providing Bosnia take no points from Belgium .
Currently the group has the ninth placed best runner up which would not get either into the playoffs and Belgium beating Bosnia in another group greatly eases either teams chances. Other teams could be dragged into it but that is the most likely scenario as it stands. nearly all second placed teams have taken maximum points from the sixth place team in each group and these points are discounted at the final count . One other scenario which would help Wales but not Ireland is Moldova getting ahead of Georgia though that's unlikely . Clear as mud.

8.) 06 Sep 2017 14:22:17
So pointless playing Moldova at all then, why don't they just leave it as team with least points, meddling around. So it's come to this, us needing to beat each other.

9.) 06 Sep 2017 14:37:56
I think the idea was some bad teams are way worse than other bad teams, at the start it was maybe better for Ireland and Wales for results against sixth placed teams not to count as Moldova aren't great but there better than Gibraltar or San Marino . Wales still needed those points as they still count in deciding how the group finishes it's just when the countback to see who were the ninth ranked runner up comes into play that they are deducted . Bosnia will lose there points to against gibraltar. Again only in the count back though all points count in how the group ends and are only lost later.

10.) 06 Sep 2017 15:11:05
I think the over complicated format highlights the need for the six lowest ranked teams to play off and the winners entering qualifying then we would have 8 groups not 9 and a simple winner goes through, runners up play off scenario and and end to complete mis match fixtures.

Absolutely shocking, not one player even touches the last team to qualify for a world cup in 2002.
