Well lads here we are. Completely and utterly out classed. They came to Old Trafford and made us look very average. The one thing I must say we have failed massively in recruitment.

I'll explain, we are currently playing with Valencia and young in the full back areas, Whilst they have performed admirably, they're not good enough. City have Walker and when fit mendy, a massive upgrade.
We move into the midfield and I must say they're light years ahead. Pogba is world class, but he wouldn't have made a huge difference there. Our options are Pogba, Matic, Herrera, Fellaini and Carrick. You could maybe bring young mctominay into that list. City brought gundogan off the bench for heavens sake.
Forwards wise we are okay, but the midfield and defence needs a huge improvement of quality.

There's a lot of areas that need addressed and unfortunately it takes a game like that where ( and I hate to say this ) we play someone just a step up in class.
We aren't a million miles of, but we aren't as close as we think I'm aftaid.
Caolan.

Been saying the same for ages.


2.) 10 Dec 2017 20:13:05
Pogba is world class but wouldn't have made a difference. Ok then.


3.) 10 Dec 2017 21:58:34
Sorry FZZ but what I mean is one player in pogba would not have turned that game around and we would have won 3-0. Look at the squad depth of both sides, if De Bruyne is missing for city they have gundogan, the two silva’s. who do we have? Fellaini, Herrera or mctominay?


4.) 11 Dec 2017 02:28:50
To be fair, they were playing with a midfielder at left back, and he's done pretty well so far, apart from today's slip up.


 

 

26 Oct 2017 21:38:55
Ed001/ 002 if you're about, quick question.
What the hell is going on with Luke Shaw? Seeing so many reports and I've no clue what's happening. If either of you have any info at all it would be greatly appreciated!

Caolan_2

{Ed002's Note - The point has been reached where there needs to be a parting of the ways. As we have previously discussed Manchester United want to refresh the left back position and there remain the same two players they would like to bring in. That will allow Shaw to move on, and perhaps Darmian as well.}


1.) 27 Oct 2017 10:06:41
Has there been a breakdown in his relationship with the manager Ed? Thanks for your reply! I’ll take it the two left back targets are the same as the ones previously mentioned. Thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - This is not a gossip page.}


2.) 27 Oct 2017 10:32:04
Don't suppose anyone has an amazing memory and can remember who the two potential LB targets are please?!

{Ed002's Note - Aaron Martin and Danny Rose.}


3.) 27 Oct 2017 10:54:29
Whose the 2 left backs Ed, Rose and Aaron Martin? Would love Tierney, I don’t suppose he could be prized away Ed?

{Ed002's Note - The targets are as I have explained. Tierney right now is a firm target for another side but is best off where he is for now.}


4.) 27 Oct 2017 11:55:17
Sorry Ed I sent this before I saw the above post.


5.) 27 Oct 2017 14:08:15
Who are the two players, Rose and.? Sessegnon? Tierney?


6.) 27 Oct 2017 14:59:39
You joking panebello?


7.) 28 Oct 2017 09:40:40
Get rid. His attitude stinks.


8.) 28 Oct 2017 09:02:03
Thanks for info Ed002! ☺️.


9.) 30 Oct 2017 17:05:12
Maybe not Ed002 but it is a rumours page. You might not like to gossip but have you heard any rumours about why Shaw needs to move on?

{Ed002's Note - nationalenquirer.com or goatfarmer.com for the gossip - not here.}


10.) 31 Oct 2017 11:28:27
The fact that his own parents came out and said he needs to stop eating garbage food and take care of his weight issues says it all.


 

 

02 Jun 2017 13:53:41
A few rumours of semedo heading to Barcelona now.

Caolan_2

1.) 03 Jun 2017 13:41:53
I will be really disappointed if we miss out on Semedo. He looks like a great prospect and Valencia will turn 32 this summer. Semedo has great attacking ability down the flank.


 

 

26 May 2017 19:24:31
Hi ed002, a few weeks back you said to a poster to ask again about the possible outgoings? I was just wandering if this has been done and I've missed it? if not and if you have the time off course would it be possible for you to share the potential outgoings?
Cheers,
Caolán.

{Ed002's Note - I did it, you should find it on the site. The only change is Hererra is now staying.}


1.) 27 May 2017 17:58:49
No bother I'll have another look!
Cheers.


2.) 27 May 2017 20:57:17
That's every bit as good news as signing a new player. Herrera for me is the next captain.


3.) 27 May 2017 21:09:05
Good news ed, thanks.


4.) 28 May 2017 09:58:40
Any one know what to search for can't seem to find it.


5.) 28 May 2017 10:15:22
I couldn't find it either but I imagine if you type ed002 you'd find it eventually.


6.) 28 May 2017 10:39:41
Yeah it's there if you search Ed002. Then do a find for Darmian and you should find the list.


7.) 28 May 2017 13:40:28
Type in ed002 then scroll down to 9th may.

Copied Ed's comments below if Ed kindly allows them to be pasted:

{Ed002's Note - A mess of:
Matteo Darmian
Marcus Rojo
Phil Jones
Ashley Young
Michael Carrick (will not get a new contract unless no replacement is available in the Summer - else a one year extension)
Wayne Rooney
De Gea
Sergio Romero
Juan Mata.


8.) 28 May 2017 14:59:35
No Smalling on that list?

{Ed002's Note - You can add Smalling. The club wants two CBs if they can.}


9.) 28 May 2017 15:10:15
rojo, jones and smalling? don't u think that is too many defenders out in a single window ed?
Even if we get two. defenders, we may be light in squad.

{Ed004's Note - Well I don't think Rojo is in a position to pass a medical currently so I'd guess it would be Jones and Smalling instead}


10.) 28 May 2017 15:46:26
That would be good ed. Rojo has improved a lot under jose. isn't a first choice but can be a good squad player.

{Ed004's Note - I would keep Smalling tbh because I can't see Keane wanting to play a squad role. Bailly + a new signing with Smalling and Rojo covering seems ideal with Tuanzebe, Blind, Carrick and maybe Dier able to cover}


11.) 28 May 2017 15:06:49
Thanks Ed. Enjoy the sunny Bank Holiday weather.


 

 

07 May 2017 17:50:23
Well having watched that performance it was quite upsetting to watch Rooney. He doesn't look like he can move freely anymore, he's missing about 5 yards of pace. The Wayne Rooney off old gets a hat trick today. It is a real shame because my goodness what a player he was and I feel that we have to remember him for the player he was and not the player of the last 18 months or so.

He's got the record which is an incredible achievement and whether you like him or not that has to be respected. Hopefully he moves on this summer and enjoys his last couple of years.

What a player he was and I hope he enjoys his retirement. On his day one of the best I ever watched and he provided so many amazing memories.
Caolan.

Caolan_2

1.) 07 May 2017 18:45:39
Yes it's the first five.


2.) 08 May 2017 18:40:50
Agreed caolan, rooney in his pomp was something else to watch.

But today he is not even a shadow of his former self. He looks so out of it playing at this level. I saw players yesterday that were forced to play a certain way which was highly frustrating but in rooney I saw a diminished player. This has been going on for 4 years now. I think the time is right to say goodbye.


3.) 08 May 2017 22:16:58
For me Angel I am finding it very hard to watch. After all I'm only 20 and Rooney was the first player I would say I looked up to. The memories I have of him are incredible, big goals in big games. Pace, power and just an incredible appetite. It's only these last few years which have made gain even more respect for Scholes and Giggs as they managed to keep doing it at that incredibly high level for quite a bit longer. Rooney was my first inspiration as a player and I hate the criticism because at time he's carried us on his back. It's time to say goodbye not just for us because we need new players, but also so he can be considered the legend he is.
Caolán.

Sorry mate but pogba would have made a MASSIVE difference.


2.) 10 Dec 2017 19:12:03
They even rested Aguero and were missing their first choice left back and CB. They brought on Silva for 2 minutes who would be one of the first names on our team sheet if we had signed him this summer.


 

 

05 Dec 2017 23:00:10
Well what did everyone think of Shaw? I thought he was superb, looked sharp and fit. Unfortunately I think he was being put in the shop window.

Caolan_2

{Ed004's Note - Hopefully he has shown enough to Mourinho tonight to get a chance to fight his way back into the team. Ideally we would go into next season with Valencia and a new right back competing and Shaw and a new left back competing. If we intend to play 3 at the back we should adopt a similar approach to Spurs and alternate our full backs}


1.) 05 Dec 2017 23:22:48
That’s exactly what I was saying on the chat ed. Squad game these days and there is enough games in a season to rotate our full backs. Think the 3 at the back is the best formation for the players we have. Shaw was brilliant tonight and made some good surging runs. Hopefully the penny has dropped for him and he knuckles down mentally as he has all the talent in the world. Only time will tell.

{Ed004's Note - Shaw was very impressive tonight. You could tell he was rusty and I think that’s why he started to cramp near the end. However, his fitness looks like it has improved dramatically which is a good sign. He won’t feature vs City but hopefully he gets a few games over the winter period. I still think if Sandro or a top tier left back is available we should go for them}


2.) 05 Dec 2017 23:38:38
He showed the manager tonight that he is capable of being super focused hard working and showed great attitude. Asking witj all of that for his first full game in a year showed louts of quality. The manager had promised him more chances if he produces more if the same then he has every chance to fight for his place. If he plays like that consistently and proves he can then he will earn his place.


3.) 05 Dec 2017 23:30:05
the new lad victor is very good at right back ed4 but then we might have to keep smaling who is a accident waiting to happen.


4.) 06 Dec 2017 08:06:49
I think it's a little to late for Shaw.

It's a shame, before his injury under lvg he was immense.

But if you can t have the motivation to work hard and come back stronger then you don't deserve to play for a big club

Players with less ability have had worse injurys and come back with a better attitude.

It's took him till now to show glimpses of his old self all be it against an average team.


5.) 06 Dec 2017 08:30:45
It's never too late if he can produce performances like that consistently m.


6.) 06 Dec 2017 16:51:09
or maybe there is an underlying condition that we are not aware of and the Mourinho jibes were just a front to protect him? it is never too late.


 

 

14 Nov 2017 11:50:48
Was listening to a YouTube video with a review of our youth team last night. It briefly brought up the English youth sides which had great tournaments this summer. So my question is, why isn't there a structure in place to help some of these kids into the first team in the premier league? Ourself we have some really outstanding talents in our under 18's but whether or not any of them actually make it to the first team is another story. Obviously there are high hopes for Gomes, but why aren't more coming through? Is there a failing in the under 23 system which doesn't help the step up? Is the coaching set up among the clubs in England not good enough? There's an issue with some really talented players stalling and not making it, which is a shame.
I know a lot of people will talk about money, but at the end of the day if you're good enough you will surely get a chance? Would just like to hear everyone's opinion (eds included) about potential changes to help get some of the younger lads into first team football in the premier league.
Caolán.

Caolan_2

1.) 14 Nov 2017 12:03:49
Too much at stake to risk bedding in youth now. They may have all the talent in the world but they are typically inconsistent and managers jobs are too pressurized to risk fielding a youngster unless they have to.

The money is a massive factor as well. If a club has spent £100m in the summer and massive wages, then have that new flash signing on the bench because of a youth prospect it is going to annoy a few people. Even friendly matches now come with stipulations on X number of first team players starting or things like that.

I suppose it's similar to why Big Budget Hollywood films won't have an unknown as a lead actor. It should be the best actor irrespective of "brand", but it very rarely is the case - just the same as youngsters getting proper chances in elite clubs. You go for the insurance policy, massive shame but it is why we are suffering imo.


 

 

05 Nov 2017 22:24:08
Well I think today first half we were decent. Started brightly, looked like we had good control of the game in the first 20 minutes or so. Can't help but think what would have happened if Rashford scores the header? Different game perhaps. I've got a few issues with the rest of the game, and of of them is Miki (yes I know I've brought this up many times) . I hate singling him out, but I counted at least 5 times in the first half fabregas burst past him, that's not acceptable. Everyone knows fabregas is a terrific player but you can't give him space, I really feel we should have started with McTominay over Miki. Yes he's a kid but at least he shows some heart and doesn't go missing.
Overall I'm not to worried about todays game, we tried to have a go. Clear to see we miss pogba, maybe when he's back Miki might start playing a bit better, who knows.
Caolán.

Caolan_2

1.) 05 Nov 2017 22:51:59
I wasn't as disappointed as I was a few weeks ago. Huddersfield and Liverpool bothered me more. We weren't awful, but there is confidence issues so I think this break came at the right time. I think Lukaku and Miki have been struggling for a few weeks now and need to get their mojo's back. Get Pogba, Rojo and Ibra back in the team and dressing room and find our feet again.

Anyway I'm shattered, so goodnight fellas. And ladies if there are any on here.


2.) 05 Nov 2017 22:58:17
I think Jose felt the pressure of the criticism thrown at him after the Liverpool game combined with the memory of last year's abject defeat, and played a more open game than he would ordinarily. At least we gave it a go and had a few decent chances but, frankly, our combination plays are simply not good enough, nor is Lukaku's first touch, nor the quality from dead ball situations. It was only in the last 10 minutes, when the chips were down, we were able to mount continuous pressure. We really need Pogba back.


3.) 06 Nov 2017 05:05:40
coalan i think it is time we stop criticizing mkhi and criticize the man who keeps keeping him while mkhi consistently delivers rubbish performances.


4.) 06 Nov 2017 06:45:44
We get it Moyes. you have been in a bad mood ever since we sacked you. Move on.


5.) 06 Nov 2017 12:01:09
Csm I’m sorry but there’s a lot of people out there who don’t dare criticise miki, yesterday was the first time I’d heard it by the press, so answer this for me. If Jose picked Lingard in that role to close down fabregas but also be that link to lukaku ( who no wonder he hasn’t scored he gets no service) would you have been happy? I suspect the answer is no. When pogba returns maybe we will see a better Miki, but his attitude looks ridiculous and he’s a flake. Get rid. We have had a lot of players with half the ability of that man and they’ve done much more in a red shirt.


 

 

14 Oct 2017 15:13:37
I've said it already on here this season about how infuriating Mhiki is. Once again today in a real big game he was awful, there were a couple of occasions where he should have played a pass but instead dallied on the ball and lost it. He offered zero support to lukaku which is why he was so isolated.
I'm not sold on him at all, his assists at the start of the season look good but stats can be manipulated. A player with the ability he has should be doing far more. This post isn't just about his performance today, but in general I've been really disappointed with him at times this season. He's got so much more to offer and I would love to see him trying to dominate games.
Caolán.

{Ed025's Note - i prefer mata myself..


1.) 14 Oct 2017 15:31:37
Jose has told him to start turning up in the bigger games, he didn't show up today.


2.) 14 Oct 2017 15:45:22
It's harsh to blame him, what United player turned up today? It was a case of don't score and frustrate so he did his job, i forgot martial was even on the pitch!


3.) 14 Oct 2017 15:52:02
Think Miki has done well this season but was poor today lukaku has been fantastic but was awful today.

{Ed025's Note - the set up done them both no favours jred, too negative for my liking mate..


4.) 14 Oct 2017 15:58:33
I take the point. but for me what was really painful was watching Darmian. just awful. and i'm not talking just about the throw-in.

{Ed004's Note - I really hate watching Darmian play. He offered nothing today and was shocking. Did he get forward once all game? I can’t remember the last time he overlapped one of our wingers. He isn’t even world class defensively as he was constantly beaten by whoever went at him, his passing was shocking and he looked knackered. I’ve given up waiting on Shaw. Hopefully we sign a left back in January (Rose or Tierney) or if we are waiting until the summer someone world class such as Sandro or Alaba etc. Shaw can force his way in if he’s good enough}


5.) 14 Oct 2017 15:58:50
Lukaku, Miki and Martial all struggled today, when all had the ball in the other half they were poor. But I am merely speaking about this game only. All three are good players and will improve. Bit gutted for Martial getting the nod in this particular game, hope his performance hasn't made Jose's mind up as I think Martial can become a great player, today most were bad to be fair.


6.) 14 Oct 2017 16:33:35
it is difficult to judge a player on today's performance due to the way the team was set up, however for me this is why Mhiki just falls short of being classed as a top, top level player. Sadly there are far to many times he loses the ball, miss places a pass or makes the wrong decision. at times he does something truly world class (little nutmegs/ flicks past players or scores/ assists) but his mistakes happen far to often for them to be dips in form. For me he is a very good player, not quite 'world class' and will probably be replaced by griezeman next summer (if we can buy him) .


7.) 14 Oct 2017 16:05:42
25 disappointing but not surprising.

{Ed025's Note - exactly mate..


8.) 14 Oct 2017 17:29:51
I'm not talking just about today for miki. He's reminding me so much on Nani - lots of ability but doesn't do it consistently.


9.) 14 Oct 2017 17:32:05
Prefer mata myself Ed, his decision making is much better, and his linking play is great. I think his lack of pace maybe goes against him? But I'd have him in the number 10 role.

{Ed001's Note - looks good from what I have seen, but he is still very young and needs firm handling to keep his feet on the ground. Actually good is underselling him, he looks one of the better prospects in world football right now in his age group. If he can avoid injuries and keep working hard on his game, he has a bright future ahead of him.}

To be fair to him ed (and I’m one of his biggest critics) last season he did put a defensive shift in when he played out wide, which is why he had some poor games towards end of last season. However I see what you mean with everything else and I think we should get rid it him.
Also on a side note, have you heard anything about Angel gomes and his contract talks?
