Garner and greenwood trained with first team today.


1.) 11 Dec 2018 16:28:18
They have also travelled with the first team. The under 19s are playing but maybe this is a sign they will be with the first team? Be interesting. Mason looks one hell of a talent.

2.) 11 Dec 2018 23:54:46
Jose has said Garner will be on the bench and Greenwood will be 19th man in case someone gets injured. Shame for him as I think he deserves a game based on his form this season even if he’s not quite ready.

3.) 12 Dec 2018 16:14:31
Its promising they're getting into the squad. Might be too soon but worth a look.

4.) 12 Dec 2018 19:00:54
Both on the bench, regardless of score/ result I’d love to see these kids get a chance.



29 Jul 2018 17:00:32
#WonderDogSparky has made a reference about a move to Manchester. My guess is Willian.


1.) 29 Jul 2018 21:08:15
Just what we need. Old and busted.

2.) 29 Jul 2018 21:34:52
Far from old and busted Mort. If he can play with more consistency we'll have one hell of a player mate.

3.) 29 Jul 2018 21:43:54
True but he’s 29 so would have hoped he’d have that mastered by now.

4.) 29 Jul 2018 21:49:44
Great player. Would be a great addition if it happened.

5.) 29 Jul 2018 21:55:22
Fair side but some people will point out Willian's inconsistencies as the reason not to sign him but would want Perisic, who has the same issue and is arguably not needed as much.

6.) 29 Jul 2018 22:00:03
There are reports that Madrid have put in a joint bid for him and Courtois.

Ed002 if you are around do you happen to know if there is any truth on this?

Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea will want a lot more than a few joints.}

7.) 29 Jul 2018 22:38:16
If he can play with more consistency. Which is why Chelsea fans are happy to see him go.

8.) 29 Jul 2018 23:50:54
worst winger at the world cup subbed most games hope we stay well clear.

9.) 30 Jul 2018 07:39:34
Raheem Sterling might have a claim on that title.

10.) 30 Jul 2018 09:28:07
He turns 30 on the 9th of August. His game is heavily based around pace, which he will likely start to lose in the next couple of years. He also struggles to play with consistency, which as many have pointed out if he hasn't learned that by 30 then he probably won't.

Is he better than what we have? Yeah, when he's on form. However, he clearly isn't worth what we would have to pay for him. And if we sign him he will be viewed as a poor signing when reflected on.

11.) 30 Jul 2018 07:04:35
That was really funny Ed!

12.) 30 Jul 2018 14:27:42
Willian will provide much needed balance on the right side. Mata, Lingard aren’t right wingers, Sanchez obvs isn’t going to play over there so I’d say it improves us as a team.

13.) 30 Jul 2018 19:26:25
Of course you are spot in WRD.
He will provide balance will go outside his man and cross. Great deadball delivery too.
60m is well more than his market value but when was the last time we paid market value for anybody.
As per ed002 we paid miles more than any club were prepared to pay for shaw for martial for pogba for lukaku for lindelof for ibra for sanchez both in wages. Us overpaying is nothing new which is why we can't get rid of players when we need to.
Willian will make us better imo. If we win trophies with him it will be money well spent if we don't i'm sure shappy will let us know😁.

14.) 30 Jul 2018 20:56:40
Yes Ken. The negativity on this site is frankly ridiculous. I paddle in their general direction.

15.) 30 Jul 2018 23:37:00
Most importantly, tho. Will he be a big enough signing for Red Man?

16.) 31 Jul 2018 00:16:09
Luke shaw is pretty big but we already have him on our books.

17.) 31 Jul 2018 17:52:30
All that cash but the board don't back the manager?



02 Jul 2018 16:44:09
Sam Johnstone to West Brom for £6.5 million rising to £10million if all add ons are met according to Simon Stone.
Great deal for all parties if true.


1.) 02 Jul 2018 21:50:58
Good luck to the lad. Good club and a good move.

2.) 03 Jul 2018 01:22:23
He’s a good keeper too imo, just needs a chance.

3.) 03 Jul 2018 09:29:18
The Villa fans seem gutted about this, he had a great season for them and is now going to a rival, good luck to the lad.

4.) 03 Jul 2018 12:37:42
Very good deal. Makes a change to get good money for selling someone especially young player with potential. Good keeper, hope we got a sell on clause too as I don't see him being at west brom long term.



30 Jun 2018 11:56:50
Reports coming out of France that we've made an offer to Fekir. I doubt we've made an offer to him as well we need lyon's permission. But just shows how good Ed002's info is, he stated last week that we'd been offered him.


1.) 30 Jun 2018 12:55:15
What would be his best position and where would ge fit into the starting 11?

2.) 30 Jun 2018 13:01:02
Could understand why we would look to him, although I don't think he's proven himself worthy of the supposed price tag in the French league, as he is one of the rare left footed top forwards in Europe. If we wanted to play two narrow/ inside forwards (whatever they're called) off Lukaku he could actually play in the right channel. Could be seen as somewhat of an alternative to Bale in that respect.

3.) 30 Jun 2018 13:15:56
Maybe coming in from the right onto his left?
Severely doubt there is absolutely anything in the rumour but thought I’d pass it on.

4.) 30 Jun 2018 13:44:11
May be is seen as a replacement of Mata, who may still leave.

5.) 30 Jun 2018 13:47:00
Interesting read in the irish mirror today by Samuel Luckhurst on Fekir to United. No idea how much is true mind you.

6.) 30 Jun 2018 17:26:23
just what we need another wide player to cut in because we are short in that department.

7.) 30 Jun 2018 17:12:20
Ed spot as usual with his info. I am a fan of fekir but not sure he is what we need. He can play on the right so could solve that problem area. Would rather we had someone with more pace such as bale as it would give us better balance. However, fekir is great from set pieces and woulld help us get the most out of lukaku’s attributes in the air. Interesting to see what happens.

8.) 30 Jun 2018 23:05:54
Its probably Lyon starting rumours to get the scouse back in.

9.) 01 Jul 2018 09:45:26
More than likely Mort but it just backed up wht Ed002 stated and I thought I’d share. I agree there’s likely nothing in it, but it is interesting.

10.) 01 Jul 2018 13:38:33
Its an interesting rumour. He'd be a decent signing. And gazumping the scouse would be comical.

11.) 04 Jul 2018 19:13:21
Ronaldo will be Mata's replacement 😆😆.



16 Apr 2018 23:30:21
With Jose talking about players not showing consistency, does anyone think we may be about to see wholesale changes against bournemouth? Shaw might get a game. I'm seems with his comments about some players already not being considered for the spurs game that he's maybe ready to get rid of a few? I for one would love to see a couple of the younger lads included on Wednesday. After all he said a spectacular performance would keep a player in the team.

Do we think he's challenging the likes of pogba and Sanchez to prove they want to play in the big game to get more from them, or could we actually be surprised and see some of the younger lads? I know what option I'd go with.


1.) 17 Apr 2018 07:05:52
I think it’s really interesting. The club needs to decide to back the current manager again or change manager. Unless there is a change of manager I doubt you’ll see Shaw next season. If he gets a game it will be to place him in the shop window.

Personally, I think Mourinho has done a good job. 6th to 2nd is progress. That said I am not a fan of Mourinho’s approach as a manager. I think he develops his CV more than players.

2.) 17 Apr 2018 09:45:14
I would seriously like to see a younger and explosive team for Bournemouth game. Give them a chance and see if they can handle the pressure. Forget the luxury of senior players except for key ones.
I’d rather the younger ones play attacking and pace than the slow overly careful game by some of the senior players. What’s to lose? At the worse we are still 2 point ahead of the scousers! The PL title is already lost so as long as we are in top 4 what the hell?
We need to identify which are the young players who can come into first team and what better opportunity to see how they perform? Maybe the senior players can learn a little from them?

3.) 17 Apr 2018 09:46:24
I think the club is backing Jose and a third season will see what he can really do. We’re not blind, the current back four is nowhere near good enough to win a title, so full back and centre halves are a priority as is an improved midfield. Matic cannot play effectively every single week and I’d love to see Martial paired with Lukaku up top with Sanchez supporting.

4.) 17 Apr 2018 20:49:25
Why would playing younger players make us more attacking? I think the managers tactics and instructions are as much the problem as anything.

5.) 18 Apr 2018 10:32:13
Stand, I tend to think the younger players are more eager to impress and tend to be more fearless.

6.) 18 Apr 2018 12:44:08
Personally I would be putting Gomes and Chong in the matchday squad, give them some starts. But I'm not manager.

7.) 18 Apr 2018 13:04:42
It's very easy to say @give the young players a go' when you are a fan, if JM played a load of kids, United got beat and ended up dropping below Liverpool/ Tottenham you'd see a load of stick for him.

8.) 18 Apr 2018 14:08:12
Steve I’m not so sure I agree. If anything it would show Jose buying into the clubs traditions and would save him with some fans imo. Plus the younger lads at the moment have some real ability.

9.) 18 Apr 2018 19:21:28
Caolan, don't worry. Jose would have that fearlessness knocked out of them, double quick.

10.) 18 Apr 2018 19:35:38
Yeah but Nou we might get a good 45 minutes out of them ;-)

11.) 19 Apr 2018 13:07:13
Why so much negativity towards Jose?
The team has improved on last year, enough to overtake all the teams that were ahead of us except City and there is nothing we can do about that, all Jose can do is continue to improve United.
As for young players McTimony has been introduced into the first team squad, Rashford has 40+ appearances (yes about half as sub but he's still very young) .

12.) 19 Apr 2018 15:42:01
LVG played loads of youngsters and we were terrible.

25 Jan 2019 22:21:56
That was just classic United tonight. Lukaku was very good and played his role well. Great to see Sanchez back in the goals and I thought he was decent tonight. The back 4 looked a lot better, Lindelof as I've said down the page is starting to look a proper player. Very calm, the whole team is looking like a unit again.

8 from 8 including wins away at spurs and arsenal. Fair play ole!


1.) 25 Jan 2019 22:56:23
This is getting very serious now. Ole’s passing his audition to date with flying colours and then some!

2.) 26 Jan 2019 02:20:31
For once I'm not going to utter one word of criticism for this team. Played great. Stepped up and battled for the club and the fans. It almost felt like an old classic utd-arse match, in that case only the result and the pride in the badge matters.

They all passed with flying colours.


3.) 26 Jan 2019 07:02:07
Well said Dodge 👍.

4.) 26 Jan 2019 07:17:30
The players are enjoying the football and following the tactics.



17 Jan 2019 12:09:48
Ed001 I know it's early days but I want to ask what are your first impressions of Solksjaer and do you think he could end up getting the job permanent?



{Ed001's Note - he has done nothing to give any impressions of him to be honest. Until he loses a game and we see how he and the team react, we will not really know anything about him. Right now he has just come in and been the opposite to Mourinho and the players are enjoying the freedom. We have yet to find out if he has more to offer than that.}

1.) 17 Jan 2019 12:57:32
Absolutely true that Ed01.

{Ed001's Note - might turn out to be a genius move or an awful one, but we are a long way from finding out yet.}

2.) 17 Jan 2019 14:27:07
I worry that people will get swept up in the improved football/ atmosphere over the next few months, and forget that the club requires massive modernisation if it is to keep pace with the best of the best.

3.) 17 Jan 2019 15:05:13
Going by the euphoria on the page, looks like people are already in that swirl/ whirlpool.

4.) 17 Jan 2019 15:32:15

Why does everything have to be about the future? Are we not allowed to just enjoy what is going on now? I'd hate to not be allowed to enjoy the present because all I worried about was the future, must be so miserable.

Everybody knows there is a lot of work to do but it is great to see us playing how we are, scoring goals and winning games, are we meant to sit on our hands and keep complaining even though it's pretty good?

5.) 17 Jan 2019 17:01:11
This is why the club should be employing the DoF or Technical Director as is being mentioned.

With Mourinho now gone then we have a wider choice to get the right person in the post who can then asses Ole and other candidates to then help the board make the right decision.

Never known it to take so long to employ someone. This was a recommendation to Woodward in 2016.

6.) 17 Jan 2019 17:52:43
I'm caught up in the 'whirlpool' right now. Absolutely loving it. Winning games and actually looking forward to watching us play. Incredible.

7.) 17 Jan 2019 19:15:41
GDS you were a positive bloke sonetime ago. what happened to you, having a go at me at all my posts. Something wrong dude?

Yes, i sit and plan for my future and that is why i am in a position where i am at this very moment. Miserable isn't something that i am. Anyway, just walk down the road and reach Anfield and ask them what it feels to just sit and enjoy the present. They will tell you how many league titles they have won in the last 25 years by not planning for the future.

Wazza, i agree mate. I am also enjoying and waiting for the next match but it would be unwise if we just got caught up in the moment and not planned for the future.

8.) 17 Jan 2019 19:18:21
He misses the heights of the Mourinho days. Leave him be.

9.) 18 Jan 2019 01:24:23
Not sure anything I said was ‘having a go at you’ mate, calm down. What about my post wasn’t positive?

You are aware that nobody on this page can do anything about the clubs future, you’re just a fan not the chief exec, a fan of a team that has 6 wins from 6 and is finally playing some decent football. I just suggest you enjoy it, otherwise you’ll spend all your time wondering what could be and miss the fun.

10.) 18 Jan 2019 11:24:35
Yet again, got to agree with GDS2, what's so wrong with enjoying good attacking football, especially since we've had to wait quite a while for it.

It's quite arrogant for us to think about the planning for future as we are just fans and not really in the driving seat in my opinion which is full of humility.

11.) 18 Jan 2019 11:31:40
Shan - there’s no point worrying about what you can’t control.

We’ve been terrible for a while and watching football was miserable.

Now we are playing well again and watching football is enjoyable.

Just go with it man, you can’t change the outcome 👍🏼.

12.) 18 Jan 2019 12:20:53
Enjoy the moment guys.
We are getting both results as well as attacking football which is exactly what we were longing for.

13.) 18 Jan 2019 16:31:19
We ain’t seen football this enocourgaging in about 5 years so let’s just enjoy the ride.



25 Dec 2018 03:31:59
Fellas, I've been posting on here since I was 14. God help me but I got engaged this weekend. I hope you all have a smashing Christmas (eds included) hopefully another good win on Boxing Day!


{Ed001's Note - don't do it mate, it is not too late to scarper!!! (By the way, a good hint is not to read these posts through bleary eyes, as I first off read it as you were saying you are 14 and just got engaged.) Have a merry Christmas and remember it is not too late to change your mind and save yourself from a life of misery.}

Congratulations Caolan, I got married this year, your in for a hell of a ride. I didn't know it took a whole committee to decide the colour of the napkins. Now I do. Everything will take 5x as long to to plan as you expect and 10x the cost. But in the end you get so pissed during the day it doesn't matter. Lol.

11.) 25 Dec 2018 17:48:36

Marriage is what you make it and so long as you respect your vows and your partner, I'm sure you'll have a wonderful life together.

Pity us married men can't call upon an interim husband through the hard times and then pick it up again when things are good. Just kidding. I fell in love with mine on the first date when she turned up wearing goalie gloves and I knew then that she was a keeper. I'm here all week 😆😆.

15.) 25 Dec 2018 22:32:29
Well done caolon, my advice is from the start you have to do what you like doing, it's all habbits you give the other half, keep the sport channels on as often as you can, documentaries, stuff they don't like, after a while then they will ask for a TV in the kitchen tis then your home and dry,

16.) 26 Dec 2018 00:51:19
Well done, Caolan. If it's the right woman, it's the best thing you'll ever do. I used my wedding money to go to the Noucamp in 99, so don't follow me 😁.

17.) 26 Dec 2018 05:37:12
Congratulations Coalan. They say marriage is what you make it. Well, getting engaged to marriage is like a first leg of a champions league - winning will not guarantee you the tie and your opponent may spring a surprise and change the tactics for the return leg🤣😭

I don't want to tell you to abort mission but you're in for a Rollercoaster of a ride.

I wish you all the best in your future mate👍🏽.



20 Dec 2018 20:28:25
Chong not with the 23s tonight. If he's not injured I'd say he will be with the first team. Ole's interview was a breath of fresh air. Regardless of his qualifications for the role, this could be exactly what the club needs.


1.) 21 Dec 2018 11:59:19
Does anyone know if he picked up a knock?



19 Dec 2018 13:44:46
Just a quick thanks to Ed002 for all the insight over the past couple of days. It's very much appreciated and helpful to understand the full picture.


{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

1.) 19 Dec 2018 14:19:54
Ed002 which do you think is the best run club currently?

{Ed002's Note - Overall, Manchester City are very well run.}

2.) 19 Dec 2018 14:24:01
Can you kind of elaborate on that, what is it they do better than others, especially what Utd could actually learn from them.

3.) 19 Dec 2018 14:47:15
Ambitious owners who want to win trophies.
Football people running the day to day business of the club and handling recruitment.
Backing the manager in bringing in players but also in shipping out those no longer deemed good enough rather than rewarding them with new contracts.
Investing in the local community.

4.) 19 Dec 2018 14:59:56
I think City had the good fortune to be starting from next to nothing and were therefore able to create an extremely well financed debt free structure geared or the long term. They invested in the ground, the locality, the youth structure, international development all with the long term intent of being the best in Europe. Moreover they have been prepared to act quickly to take the opportunity to move on from one manager to the next in furtherance of that aim. It's rather like building a new city where none existed before. All the infrastructure is modern and contemporary as opposed to trying to update a road system built for horse drawn carriages and fix a crumbling sewer system. It's a process of natural evolution. United is the heir to Athens, City to the gleaming new towers in the desert. United has been about debt management, City about football.

I’m fairly sure another reason why Fellaini has been moved on is down to the fact some of the younger midfielders like garner will be getting a chance at some stage. I think we should play Gomes on Saturday.

Completely different type of player to Jesse, I’d say off the ball jesse is better at finding space etc. But when it comes to 1v1s sancho is better.

I really don’t understand the want to move Lingard on or have him out of the side. Played a huge role in the win against spurs. He’s versatile and has great movement. Yes, there are better players in world football than Lingard, but we’ve more important areas to address.

Maybe he will be used as cover instead of needing to purchase another centre back to sit on the bench. There’s bound to be a plan so let’s wait and see.

Arsenal created two chances bar the goal. I thought we were very good defensively tonight. Shaw wasn’t excellent and bailly grew in confidence. Special mention for Victor Lindelof. He looks a player. Hopefully get him a settled parter.
