Tottenham looking to start negotiations with us for martial.

Hope we put up as much of a fight as levy does when clubs go in for his players. I somehow doubt we will and hell end up going for a bargain price and well regret selling him for sure.


1.) 06 Jun 2018 12:40:36
How the conversation should go.
Levy - is martial for sale?
Woody - no
Levy - maybe Toby in a straight swap.

Woody - kiss my hairy meatballs. Its either 40m for Toby or its Shaw and 15m.

Levy - what about 50m for martial

Woody - are you talking about his wages or a transfer fee? In this market he is worth 70m easy and we don't want to sell so that's 110m for martial

Levy - We won't pay more than 50m for a player.

Woody - not my problem, 50m and Eriksen and we might talk. I'm busy conducting real business so no fannying around. You got till Monday, after that you're on call divert to my fax machine.

2.) 06 Jun 2018 12:46:50
Depends on if A) the player wants to go and B) if the club want to sell.

The club I imagine would prefer to sell abroad and the player would prefer a move to say juventus.

3.) 06 Jun 2018 13:58:37
He won’t be going to Spurs - although personally think it’s a good move for him.

4.) 06 Jun 2018 23:40:31
Wow how much do you value Shaw at lol.

5.) 06 Jun 2018 23:39:53
I may be wrong but seem to recall the Martial deal had milestone payments, one of which when he scored a certain number of goals we would have to pay a lump sum. I seem to recall reading he was one goal short of that milestone towards the end of the season. It may not impact contractually because if we sell I imagine there are other clauses to make up for it but there may still be a financial benefit to selling him before he scores it.

Overall Martial is too phlegmatic which spoils his talent, I don’t see where he would fit in the team at Spurs.



01 Jun 2018 12:37:16
Hi eds,

Do you know if united have offered david de gea a new contract on improved terms?


{Ed004's Note - Think they've been negotiating with him for a while. It would help if Madrid would sign a gk this season}

1.) 01 Jun 2018 13:12:51
With the rumours of Chelsea no longer looking to extended Courtois's contract and his child living in Madrid it sounds like there might be an outcome that keeps DDG at United for a few more years at least.

{Ed004's Note - That is exactly the scenario I am hoping for.}

2.) 01 Jun 2018 16:24:34
Interesting that Calderon ex Madrid president is mouthing off saying Perez and ZZ were constanty at odds. one of the problems is that Perez wanted rid of Navas and wanted ZZ to buy the keeper from Bilbao . whoever he is? according to the express/ star / sun .

Rumour of Ozil on deadline day if Zlatan goes to La Galaxy.

Ozil not in the arsena squad today. Just heard him and his agent were at wings tonight. Make of that what you will.




30 Oct 2017 14:25:48
Anybody who attended the game on saturday hear lots of booing of lukaku? Mourinho seems to be making an issue of it.


1.) 30 Oct 2017 14:36:52
If there was booing it’s fickle of the fans to do so. Lukaku is at a new club and has scored a fair few goals already. He’s still improving as a player. He’s been here only a few months. Against Spurs he hit the post and set up Martial. Whilst playing up top is about scoring goals, you also have to be good off the ball, make those penetrating runs. Drag defenders out of position. Against Liverpool he didn’t really do that, but neither did the rest of the team.

2.) 30 Oct 2017 16:06:20
I didn’t hear any booing.

There was a few groans but nothing overtly negative to any of the players.

3.) 30 Oct 2017 17:07:01
Few groans i heard on tv when he stopped and started chasing a ball.

Think Jose is on about booing the Rashford sub?

If not then he's (to me) looking at a way to divide himself from the most important aspect of the club, and looking for a way out.

4.) 30 Oct 2017 17:32:52
Only seen jose mention booing of the rashford sub.

He has mentioned fans not being supportive of lukaku tho.

5.) 31 Oct 2017 06:13:12
I'm sorry, but fans booing Mou for taking Rashford off was uncalled for.

I think, personal opinion though, is that Rashford is a slightly frustrating player at times. I think sometimes he tries a bit too hard, dribbles one player too many and his delivery in the final 3rd can leave you wanting for more.

One example of him being extremely frustrating was the Benfica match. Whenever he took a corner, he just wanted to score directly from it and even the free kick from which he scored, was just luck.

I'm not saying he's a bad player, he's a talented guy who might make it big, but the current problem is that he tries to win the match on his own and that is frustrating.

Now, the substitution on Saturday, for the Spurs game was spot on. Yes, Martial has had bad games too, but I feel both are better in the current system as impact subs. Anyway, not to start an argument or to piss other posters off, just my take.

6.) 31 Oct 2017 13:19:24
Think there is any chance that Jose told rash to put every corner free kick on the young keeper, let's see what his like .
Might even make a mistake?

7.) 01 Nov 2017 06:53:40

That might be the issue, but then, don't you think that's a complete waste of tactic, we've got players who are well above 6 feet. Don't you think it would make sense to try and find at least one?

8.) 01 Nov 2017 07:42:28
We scored of it, job done .
Rash but 2 corners and then the free kick on gK in the space of 3 minutes and he struggled with all 3 .

How many times to we actually see teams make a chance off a corner, even with players over 6ft.

It was a tactic it worked, the gK was struggling with it why change?

9.) 01 Nov 2017 08:32:21
I think a lot of teams take advantage of a set-piece situation. Whether it is a free kick or even a corner. I think that's the whole purpose an attacking set-piece, putting the opponent under pressure.

I'm not saying the tactic didn't work, it did and we scored, but I'll take it as more of a fluke, rather than a practised thing.

09 Jun 2018 18:08:47
Interesting Report in the independent that jose mourinho has shelved plans to bring in any first team full back choices (dont think dalot will play that much) . Instead mourinho is favouring the idea of focusing on getting a back up striker.

Can anyone see any logic in this plan?

If you took a poll of fans regarding which area of the pitch to strengthen, i'm sure 95% would have said full back. Also with rashford and martial at the club do we really need cover for lukaku?


1.) 09 Jun 2018 18:21:12
Think it’s just paper talk. Ed said we are looking for a left back. I expect us to sign one. Much more pressing areas that striker. But I agree 95% of fans would definitely prefer the signing of a full back. We cannot have another year of young at left back. I would be happy to see shaw given a chance but we know Jose doesn’t rate him.

2.) 09 Jun 2018 18:21:40
Maybe he's looking to try and play 2 up top next season.

3.) 09 Jun 2018 19:10:33
Reports Shaw has been offered a new contract . See what happens.

4.) 09 Jun 2018 19:32:43
Jred good news if he has. We have a talented player there. Time for him to step up and show his worth. Time also for Jose to nurture him into a world class player. Let’s see what happens.

5.) 09 Jun 2018 19:40:28
Shaw signing a new contract would be a form of self flagellation.

6.) 09 Jun 2018 20:02:08
Jred, are you referring to the club triggering the one year option they had on shaws contract or him being offered a new long term contract?

Because the former could just have been done to protect his transfer value whereas the latter is a real show of faith by the club and mourinho.

7.) 09 Jun 2018 20:03:51
Time for him to cop on more like.

8.) 09 Jun 2018 20:18:59
If you were Shaw would you sign it?

9.) 09 Jun 2018 20:45:22
Shaw shouldn't be offered one. Basic requirement of a professional athlete is fitness. Guy can't pass a kebab shop.

10.) 09 Jun 2018 20:49:11
I would love it if we sign a striker. Lukaku doesn't cut it for me om his own and if he gets injured i domt think we can rely on the kids.

11.) 09 Jun 2018 21:03:06
The kids are men.

12.) 09 Jun 2018 21:26:26
Not a hope in hell Jred. Shaw needs to move on for his own career. I don’t see any way he will get back to his best under Jose. Two years with him, and he’s not even guaranteed second choice. I’d say Shaw is hoping and praying that Poch comes in for him.

13.) 09 Jun 2018 21:29:34
Jose wanted lukaku we spent 90 mil on a striker the manager wanted .

14.) 09 Jun 2018 21:42:37
If he gets injur3d then what?

15.) 09 Jun 2018 21:51:53
Singh nonsense, give Lukaku proper service and he will score for fun. He scored 27 goals whilst feeding off scraps. Not sure what more you want. We need more goals from the players around him. Martial had a decent output but wasn’t played as regularly as we would have hoped. Jesse had a great spurtbut again no enough. And we had next to nothing from the right. The front 3 of Liverpool all scored plenty of goals, sharing the load. We need more from the likes of pogba as well. Lukaku is not the problem here. The problem is tactics to an extent and consistency of the wide players. Hopefully the additions should help this next season.

16.) 09 Jun 2018 21:59:26
Shaw now, eventually, has to be moved on i'm affraid.

17.) 09 Jun 2018 22:29:10
No matter what you guys say. Still don't think Lukaku has it in him to win the champs league and if he gets injured in the prem league we can't rely om the incosistent plahers like Martial and Rashford.

18.) 09 Jun 2018 23:42:50
Maybe the board are telling Jose they have invested in Shaw so make it work. There is a player in there without a doubt, but how much longer will he get?

19.) 10 Jun 2018 00:04:21
Please, Shaw is not going to step up, nor is he going to be a top player. How many chances is he going to have? Its pathetic and irritating that people still think he's going to be a top player. He's not as he's not prepared to put the work in. Sell him and watch as his career goes down the pan. I have zero patience with him.

20.) 10 Jun 2018 09:41:42
If Dalot is as good as JM seems to think he is judging by his recent comments then I think JM might surprise a few by giving him more than a handful of starts -if the lad gets a chance and takes it then who knows?

Obviously its a new country/ league etc and a step up but I wouldn't rule it out. I do hope though all this talk of "he can play at either full back position" comes to nothing as in my opinion you are a right back or a left back, round pegs. round holes etc etc.



30 May 2018 08:23:26
Should juan mata still be at the club next season?

Lacks goals, assists and any remote turn of pace to play right wing.

Could he be tried out as a central midfielder in similar way that coutinho and david silva were for their respective clubs or is he not good enough.


1.) 30 May 2018 08:49:46
Depends on formations if we play 4-3-3 like most would want then he is too slow for the front 3. In theory he could play the cazorla role but I can't see Jose ever wanting to try that apart from at the death of a game. Realistically he either needs to be the 2nd striker but we have sanchez rashford and martial for that role or he needs to play at the top of a diamond but that formation would make is even narrower than now so to make a short point long it's probably best for all parties if he moved on. He is a bit like Ray Wilkins who will be fondly remembered by all clubs he played for and will be welcomed back either as opposition or as a future employee.

2.) 30 May 2018 09:15:41
I love Juan mata. He is a model pro and seems a lovely guy. He is also a very talented footballer. However, we have failed to get the best out of him during his spell with us. He has only shown flashes of his brilliant form at Chelsea. I’ve always felt his best position is no 10 but for whatever reason he has never been played there, or when he has he hasn’t set the world alight.

I would love him to stay but with new signings I feel his playing time will be limited. At his age he will want to be playing week in week out. I do believe that when he does play and he is on form then we play our best football. He has a great footballing brain and would be majestic if he was playing for city. I like the idea of him playing the cazorla role as schnauzer mentions above. But cannot see Jose doing that.

One of the few players we have signed in recent years that has fully embraced the club, it’s traditions and ethos. He along with Herrera truly get what it means to play for united. He has immersed himself into Mancunian life and I will be pretty devastated to see him go. If he is happy to play a bit part role then I would not let him go. But sentiment aside, if we want to get back to the top we Can’t let our heart rule our head.

He will always be remembered fondly by united fans. He strikes me as a very intelligent and measured man and I expect him to be a very good manager. You never know we may see him in the hot seat at united in several years time.

3.) 30 May 2018 10:01:32
Should have been sold 2-3 years ago. Has the occasional big impact, but he is a passenger and often a liability.

I like the guy (although his virtue signalling irritated me), but Big Mick at the local pub is a nice guy as well.

4.) 30 May 2018 10:33:57
I wouldn't say he's been a passenger.

I love mata. never moans and you never hear a bad word about the guy.

Gives his all when he plays and is one of a very few players that can play it close and tidy.

Would be pissed if we sold him.

5.) 30 May 2018 10:45:43
DSG v good question and great responses from schnauzer and park.

When my young daughter recently asked me who my favourite United players are I genuinely struggled, but then answered DDG, Herrera and Mata. The first because he's our only 'world class' player that actually performs like one, the latter two based on their attitude and application.

Unfortunately though, on the pitch for me Mata frustrates as much as he delights. At Chelsea I thought he was awesome and one of the very best in the league. But was it because he was the main man with the system set up for him? When we signed him somehow I was surprised at how small and slow he actually was - is that down to our style and system? Let's be honest, since he was signed have we even had a style and system? But either way, he isn't going to get better, quicker, stronger and the current system is not going to be set up for him.

So ultimately for me he is right player, wrong time, so with great regret he should move on.

6.) 30 May 2018 12:16:20
I think Mata's stats when he's played on the whole have been pretty good, and often pops up with a goal or assist.

I think the problem is he's played out of position and the team isn't set up in such a way to get the best out of him.

I'd be happy for him to stay though he may decide he wants to play more regularly. He comes across as humble, intelligent and passionate though and is a good role model for some of the younger players.

7.) 30 May 2018 16:41:31
I love Juan as I genuinely look like him. That is really the only reason I’d want him to stay now. Jose could try him in the David Silva role which might suit him, but he’s probably better going back to Spain or give Italy a whirl at this stage of his career.



28 May 2018 09:51:43
With fosu mensah, pereira and tuanzebe returning from loans spells. Does anyone see them getting a go with the first team in a similar fashion to mctominay?

Personally i see fosu mensah getting a chance at either full back position when darmian, shaw and blind leave.

The other two however i see their futures being away from old trafford. Pereira seemed to burn a bridge with mourinho by going on loan to valencia seemingly without his approval.

Dont see tuanzebe getting a chance as if we sign another centre back which will take us to 6 players battling for two spots as i don't see mourinho letting go of anyone at that position.


1.) 28 May 2018 10:09:53
I think that Toni V and TFM at right back unless there’s a new signing, new signing and young at LB, I then think Bailly, new signing, Smalling and Rojo will be Centre choices.
Matic, mctom, new sighing, Pogba and maybe a second new signing for the MF places, with Sanchez, Lingard, Rashford, new signing covering out wide, RedRom and any of the wide players who can cover CF.

2.) 28 May 2018 10:14:49
I would like to see fosu mensah given a chance to make the rb position his own. But I think a new signing will come in. Tuanzebe perhaps needs one more loan but I think the clubs have high hopes for him. Personally I would sell two out of smalling/ Jones/ Rojo and have the 4 cbs as bailly, new signing, lindelof and Tuanzebe. He’s got all the attributes to be a top player and jones and smalling for me have had enough chances. Time to move them on. I’m a massive fan of pereira and feel he made the wrong decision going on loan. He would have played a lot of games this year with the injuries we had in midfield. I think he could do a job on the right so I would love to see him stay and stake a claim. Mctominay should go on loan to develop further. Some really good youngsters in and around the squad. Would like to see Chong and Gomes get integrated and play come league cup games. And for demi Mitchell to be be given a a chance to rotate at lb.

3.) 28 May 2018 10:51:47
WRD, I’ve just posted, I think Martial and Pogba will be sad and I also think Shaw will go. Jose has a beef with attitude and there are suggestions that all 3 need a FUTA (firework up the arse)

4.) 28 May 2018 11:17:59
Agree Tony, these players don’t seem to have that mental grit jose requires, if Pogba goes I can see a second signing, I don’t think I see a future for martial and shaw here next year.

5.) 28 May 2018 12:48:12
I see left back as priority and money even for us is a consideration, so i think 50 mill earmarked for a left back and draft in TFM at right full back after Valencia. unless fabino comes in and be a fullback or midfielder. not ideal

I still think IF a top CH comes in then we don't need New guy/ jones / smalling lindelof/ bailly/ rojo/ blind and Tuanzebe .

I think it would then be Blind and rojo AND 1 of jones -smalling out. just a hunch. Quality over quantity.



26 May 2018 23:01:44
Tribal loyalites to one side (believe me i am thoroughly enjoying ribbing my mates who are liverpool fans.

But i feel so sorry for mo salah, had an insanely great season without the macho showmanship of a ronaldo or cocky arrogance of a neymar.

An honest down to earth superstar whos most likely had the two biggest moments of his career (champions league final and world cup) shattered.

P. s offload sanchez and bring in bale if you could mate ed woody.


1.) 26 May 2018 23:36:34
Offload Sanchez after 4 months of playing




23 May 2018 12:01:28
Story today that we are willing to listen to offers for martial but will not sanction a move to a premier league club and will only accept offers from abroad.

That seems very sensible, i mean its not like when chelsea sold de bruyne and salah abroad that they stayed there and didn't come back to the prem and become world class players.

Oh wait.


1.) 23 May 2018 12:14:34
I would not sell martial myself but the board has to either back or sack the manager so if Jose doesn't want him he should be sold but they should at least try to put a buy back clause in there of some sorts either first refusal or a set price clause to at least try to prevent a salah, kdb, pogba situation.

2.) 23 May 2018 12:29:20
Should the board wholeheartedly back a manager who spend a maximum of three years at every club he's been at?

Fair enough get him some of the players he wants in the summer but when it comes to players sold why should the club make long term decisions at the whim of a notorious short term manager.

3.) 23 May 2018 12:33:54
Pogba situation? Pogba ran his contract down and left for free. How is that relevant?

4.) 23 May 2018 13:40:35
It’s obvious that Jose doesn’t rate him, so it’s best to sell this summer. The club backed Jose with a new contract, so it’s his team to build or sell. No point in having Martial sitting on the bench when we could recoup some of what we paid for him.

5.) 23 May 2018 13:44:12
Dodgy- I was being a bit lazy and just using the example as its someone we had and brought back for a large sum. But you are right of course.

6.) 23 May 2018 13:47:06
Dsg the problem with keeping players the manager doest want will just mean he won't play them so I'm not sure it would help matters but I get your point.

7.) 23 May 2018 14:05:07
If we're confident Jose won't be here in 12 months then a loan would be best. If not then sell with s buyback clause.

8.) 23 May 2018 14:47:12
+1 Mort

Circumstances change for both player and club. The guys doesn’t seem happy and needs to mature his game mentality.

I would sell him with Buy back and see how it goes. If JM leaves and AM kicks on he would be welcomed back with open arms.

There’s a great player in there.

9.) 23 May 2018 14:59:10
If the club were convinced that Jose won’t be here in 12 months they wouldn’t have extended his contract. For better or worse the club is putting trust in him. Likes of Martial and Shaw will be sold this summer.

10.) 23 May 2018 15:06:25
I would hate to lose Martial. It is not easy to find a player with his ability to go at players. The job of the manager is to bring out the best in a talent like that.

11.) 23 May 2018 16:00:32
I keep heating about how the manager needs to do more to motivate certain players.

Your playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world on tens if not hundreds of thousands of pounds a week. And motivation is a problem?

12.) 23 May 2018 19:25:52
season long loan to Wolves.

13.) 23 May 2018 23:39:25
I’ve gone on record many times on here saying I don’t get the Martial love in but that’s football and it divides opinions.

All I’ll say is Jose has form for selling sulkers and moaners. Tony M doesn’t exactly look like the happy go lucky sort and we are not privvy to what goes on behind the scenes in training etc.

14.) 25 May 2018 11:06:01
Schnauzer - I don’t think a buy back clause will make any difference. From the outside it looks like Martial won’t come anywhere near a return if he gets the chance to end his OT misery.

Fred, pogba, matic, mctominay and herrera. Last season we had fellaini instead of fred (carrick hardly played) . Add to that the fact mourinho likes a small squad, don't see us need another midfielder.

How is martials attitude awful, just out of curiosity?

On pulisic why would he want to come to the club and have his young promising career stall or even go backwards. Much better for him to stay at dortmund and develop.

No disrespect jackson but why would poch go to chelsea considering they have no champions league to offer and hazard and courtois look to be off.

Its a sideways step at best and hell have bigger clubs knocking at his door surely, Barcelona real or psg.

Im not saying they are really good but that it must be tempting for them not to be fully concentrated at times safe in the knowledge they have a keeper who will bail them out most times.

Im am also not advocating selling him, just that if he wants to move to madrid, we should strike an amicable deal for his sake. No player is bigger than the club, especially a goalkeeper, no matter how amazing they are.

Definitely in the minority here but i don't think De Gea has lived up to his normal standards this season.

He was at fault for sevillas second goal and was shaky against liverpool not coming for balls that were clearly his. Still doesn't command his box from set pieces as much as youd expect the best goalkeeper to.

I would not mind if he left this summer, just for the fact it might improve the defence who might not rest on their laurels in the knowledge they have an excellent shot stopper behind them.

Serious question, why can't alexis sanchez play on the right?

Considering he drops so deep its like he's playing holding midfield it doesn really matter what flank he plays on.

People are bored of pogba want a new shiny thing in the shape of savic.

If we sign him, in two years time fans will be tired of savic and want to sign pogba back.

We have a very good team, not many changes need to be made.

Not a lot to be honest ken but we are not averse to moving players to different positions, just look at our first choice full backs.

The good thing about the world cup is that a lot of youngsters will be going on tour, they have a chance to prove themselves to mourinho.

I would love us to sign a yound dutch player called timothy fosu mensah if we are looking for a more defensive minded midfielder who can cover a lot of ground and is an excellent tackler.

On the other hand if we are looking for a more creative midfielder to play through the lines, there is this young brazilian midfielder called andreas pereira that could do a job.

I think the main thing for pogba is that although he lines up on paper as a central midfielder, he really does spend most of his time on the left side of the pitch and whichever team he plays in gets lopsided with a left back, left winger and pogba.

Probably why he excelled at juve in 4-3-1-2 or 5-3-2 under conte and allegri when there was plenty of space for him. Something jose should consider with sanchez also looking to play centrally as well.
