Manchester United academy graduates played a total of 253 minutes last night, that’s 200 minutes more than Manchester City graduates played all of last season, but Mourinho doesn’t play youth apparently.


1.) 11 Aug 2018 12:57:55
I hate city as much as any united fan but now it's just getting ridiculous. Pogba, Rashford come under our academy graduates. City has just started developing youth which they think should be capable of playing at the highest level. There are a couple who are very good and even played for them last season and didn't look out of place due to their style of play. They just bought a club in Spain where these players will play against the best and come back to be in the first team. Jose playing these guys yesterday was out of necessity.

2.) 11 Aug 2018 13:14:33
Nothing stopping guardiola signing micah richards and michael johnson back and playing them. I wouldn't have a problem with it lol.

Jose can't win can he, he plays youthful academy players but it not quite the correct variation of mystical magical youth player people want. Then he sticks to type and he's use accused of wanting to fill the team with experienced players over 30 and has no long term vision.

3.) 11 Aug 2018 14:48:04
OK with your powerful reply and the mention of Micah Richards you have managed to change my mind. Now I agree that Jose is a very youth oriented manager. I think we should adopt this style of play throughout our youth system so that there is a more seamless entry for our academy graduates into the first team. Can't wait to see chong playing at left back.

4.) 11 Aug 2018 16:20:25
Anyone really see city playing youth much this season?

5.) 12 Aug 2018 01:35:26
I think Foden might get a few games. I actually hipe he does as he is a special talent.

6.) 12 Aug 2018 05:24:35
Can't see Foden getting games.

7.) 12 Aug 2018 08:28:24
Foden might get a run of FA/ League Cup games. He looks a good player.

8.) 12 Aug 2018 11:05:55
He'll probably be at palace or Newcastle on 18 months.



27 Jun 2018 11:05:14
Looks like fellaini has agreed a new contract with the club until 2020.

I think this will go down well on the site lol.


1.) 27 Jun 2018 11:30:05
Absolutely devastated. Total shambles from the club. He's hawked himself around Europe got no good offers and we're going to get stuck with him. An injury prone squad player on far too much money that's going to affect other signings.

2.) 27 Jun 2018 12:15:28
Here's to another shambolic season. Thought we were moving forward signing Fred and Dalot. Then the news The useless plank Fellani is staying. Joke utter Joke. Well Jose won't have a leg to stand on when he gets sacked and it won't be long before he does . Keeping Fellani.

3.) 27 Jun 2018 13:07:14
Fellaini will not start a lot of games but Jose has shown he is happy to use him when needed. Useful sub.
I think already the signing of Fred will improve the style of play as I think he will fit next to Matic with Pogba further forward.
We have glaring issues at fullback and right wing, if this ensures the money is available to address those positions with top quality I'm in favour.

4.) 27 Jun 2018 13:46:06
Devastated? lol for god sake.

5.) 27 Jun 2018 14:59:13
Yes I've had to watch him shambling around the pitch for 5 years masquerading as a united player and genuinely thought that was over.

6.) 27 Jun 2018 15:24:42
There is no way he is first choice, he is a good option off the bench and has proven that since Jose came into the side.

7.) 27 Jun 2018 16:45:50
One more season of balls. looking for wig in when defence is tight to open. So Jose decided to open them with head ball rather beautiful football.
I'm personally wanted him to leave for good of our football style.

This also ends our need to bring another CM.

8.) 27 Jun 2018 23:29:16
Why does he have to be the option off the bench? Why does plan b have to be launch it?
Ole, teddy, Hernandez and the like were all options from the bench at times and they could all play. Last season Fellaini scored one winner against a very depleted arsenal side. It’s an awful decision to extend or actually worse still offer him a new deal. No one wanted him badly enough in. Free and that should say it all.

Another season of jose’s poor excuse for football coming up. What direction is this club going?



06 Jun 2018 10:12:36
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.


1.) 30 Jan 2018 13:14:11
I heard Schnidheer is about to get on a helicopter.

2.) 30 Jan 2018 13:19:30
Living in hope till the last hour of deadline day tomorrow😂.

Away from the doom and gloom around pogba martial and mourinho, one player who has quietly been going about his business has been alexis sanchez. Looks sharp in pre season and full of energy.

Interested to see peoples opinion on the following:

1.) Where do you think his best position is, LW in a 4-3-3 or up front in a 3-5-2?

2.) Providing he plays 30-35 league games how many goals and assists do you expect him to get?


{Ed025's Note - up front...and 15-20 goals for me DSG..

1.) 07 Aug 2018 12:11:54
Hes went missing in 3 of the games. May look sharp but is not the force of 2 seasons ago. Overrated.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 12:24:15
Interesting debate DSG he's got to play upfront for me.

He plays far too deep when played out wide and is ineffective. If he continues to play wide left, which I think he will, we'll see another wasted talent in my opinion.

I agree with Ed 25 between 15-20 goals if played up front!

I think we've seen against Bayern that Jose is probably going to play 4-3-3. That means Sanchez too deep getting in Pogba's way and no resolution on the right. New season same old problems.

Got to be a midfield diamond or 3 at the back for me.

Sorry to bring the negativity back maybe someone else can be a bit more positive!

3.) 07 Aug 2018 12:47:12
I would love to see him playing on the right where he flourished at Barcelona. He clearly prefers to play from the left or centrally though.

I just hope the media attention around his performances has died down over the summer and that he can have a steady 15 goal season.



06 Aug 2018 15:50:36
Welcome Moplay (new mobile gaming sponsor partner)

Jose requested signings from ed woodwards and he's delivered.

Ive heard this guys got a fantastic cross on him.


1.) 06 Aug 2018 18:27:29
Woodward has managed 5 out of 5 sponsorship deals this preseason. All hail Woodward.

2.) 06 Aug 2018 18:36:08
As some have already mentioned we don't know if Woodward is to be really blamed. yes he came from marketing department but he is the CEO now. obviously there will be a marketing department responsible for such deals. Even the lack of signings might friend on lot more factors not known to us.



06 Aug 2018 08:38:15
Interesting to see walker, stones and mendy all came back from their holidays early to play for city.

Must be what its like when you actually enjoy playing for your manager.

Meanwhile pogba is having to be dragged from his holiday home in LA lol.


1.) 06 Aug 2018 09:33:40
So explain those that did come back early then?

Its been explained by Ed2 Pogba didn't want to come to united to begin with. That had nothing to so with Jose.

2.) 06 Aug 2018 10:05:42
Yeh rash and lingard cut heir holidays short to come back early. i'm sure there are 2 more who did aswell.



03 Aug 2018 16:35:22
Good discussion on here about maguire and mina and not writing them off before we sign them if we do.

I agree they are young defenders with potential and need time to settle in but if we were looking for that type of centre back, wouldn't we just stick with bailly and lindelof who are also young and have loads of potential.

Its clear we are after an experienced centre back and maguire and mina don't fit the bill. I would much rather pay the premium for toby alderwiereld even though he will not last as long but if he is able to perform straight away and help bailly and lindelof in their development. We could have the centre back department settled for years to come.


1.) 03 Aug 2018 17:06:15
That’s a really good po Not DSG. It the premium for Toby appears to be about £50M which is ridiculous for one year. He is a available next year at £25M: I’d call Levy’s bluff and tell him we’ll wait a year and have him for £25M.

2.) 03 Aug 2018 17:19:02
I’m not all too convinced about the release clause story. Ed002 has always maintained that release clauses are not understood by the media, and they tend to write nonsense about them.

3.) 03 Aug 2018 17:34:58
Danny, it’s in the Mail so it must be true 😳.

4.) 03 Aug 2018 18:21:37
Agreed Danny. If the best CB in the league is available for £55 million and the transfer is possible, pay the money. A lot can happen between now and next season when he may or may not have a £25 million release clause.

5.) 03 Aug 2018 19:12:45
This is where the tension between club and manager comes in. Jose wants him, and thinks paying upwards of £50m is worth it for his experience. The club see it as a huge fee with no resale value. Would be happier to pay £35m for Mina, as they can potentially get money back on him.

Mina is nowhere near the top of Jose's wish list. If we bring him in and not Toby, we'll see some grumbling if things don't go our way.



02 Aug 2018 11:00:37
Putting aside money, would fans take letting martial go to a premier league club and bringing in wilfried zaha to play right wing.


1.) 02 Aug 2018 11:18:15
To be honest, yes. We should never have let Zaha leave, he has the ability to run at people and has an eye for goal. Would be a good replacement.

2.) 02 Aug 2018 11:58:17
I like Zaha think he has developed very well at palace and it is time for him to take the step up again. Got to admire he went back to palace kept his head down and became a better player. He’s premier league proven and has improved his final ball and added goals to his game. Would actually prefer him to Willian (who I’m a fan of) . But looks like spurs may be the destination for him.

3.) 02 Aug 2018 14:57:37
Zaha lacks the brains to make it at a top club. Better athlete than he is footballer.

Walk away without a payoff? Rightfully no way he'd do that.

If mourinho is really that upset, no reason why they can't come to a mutual agreement and a stopgap manager put in charge till next season.

17 Jul 2018 09:36:47
If Mourinho is going to be that unhappy with the situation i hope both parties come to some sort of mutual termination before the season starts.

Better that than mourinho sulking for the first half in the season and the club has to end up sacking him.

1.) Whenever pogba and martial underperform like sanchez does they come in for huge amounts of stick invariably leading to criticisms of their hair, dress and attitude. Why the double standard for sanchez?

2.) that's a good joke rwwd i also warned them of the Y2K problem lol.

But he doesn't have flash haircut like pogba or do ridiculous dances like lingard or not smile like tony martial.

Thought that was meant to be a guarantee of good performances. I guess he didn't get the memo.

Tbf he got a winger (even though he's looked so much better up front in a two man partnership) in january.

And he got two centre backs in two seasons.

He hasn't come out and said why they aren't sufficient. He just wants the club to spend tonnes of money on older players.

The club are well within their rights to not trust jose considering he hasn't stayed longer at a club than three seasons and it is know he's not happy in manchester.

If we play 3-5-2 we don't need a right winger.
