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😂.

3.) 30 Jan 2018 16:23:08
Snyder was spotted in the Lowry.

4.) 30 Jan 2018 17:12:59
He has 2 dogs a cat and a goldfish with him.

5.) 30 Jan 2018 19:41:03
He won't get In at the lowry they don't take cats.

6.) 30 Jan 2018 22:01:30
Would they take a pussy. lol.



31 Dec 2017 21:59:43
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.



12 Aug 2017 18:28:02
Spurs had a bid rejected for martial.

Would be a cracking move for him personally to play under pochetino especially after ed002 stated that jose wouldn't mind letting him go.


1.) 12 Aug 2017 19:04:32
Couldn't think of a less Poch player. He won't press and rubbish down like the Spurs players do.

2.) 12 Aug 2017 19:18:03

3.) 12 Aug 2017 19:21:06
Would only sell to spurs for an exaggerated price as leavy has done to us on previous occasions, or if we are interested in Rose, then its Rose + 10 mil for martial.

4.) 12 Aug 2017 19:49:11
I wouldn't like to sell him. I think he needs a loan in order to get 40 or so games under his belt then bring him back a better and more mature player.

5.) 12 Aug 2017 20:14:47
If we are selling him then we must be signing a wide player to replace him.

6.) 12 Aug 2017 20:30:48
Ken, mourinho has come out and said he wants a winger who can get 15 odd goals a season, that's exactly what martial has done in his first season.

He just needs to be backed by the manager with a solid run in the team.

7.) 12 Aug 2017 21:05:10
Far too inconsistent and Jose doesn't gamble much he likes playing players he trusts and don't think does that with martial.

8.) 12 Aug 2017 22:41:12
I'd let him go, i'm not a fan, if you can get Rose in return, do it.

9.) 12 Aug 2017 23:21:39
Why sell to Spurs? Loan him elsewhere at worst, or keep and develop him at best! There's a great player there.

10.) 13 Aug 2017 09:05:09
martial needs games but if jm likes perisic so much put martial in with the deal for a loan to inter for 12mth be better than selling him if it doesn't work out at inter then maybe think about selling him next year.

11.) 13 Aug 2017 10:46:07
People don't want Bale because of his injury record but want us to sign Rose who has played pretty much the same amount of games. As for Martial, he needs to pick up this year or I think he will be on his way. Jose is pretty black and white when it comes to players, you are in or you are out, Martial needs to decide which it is.

12.) 13 Aug 2017 10:59:59
What you forget DSG is that in his first season he was playing as a number 9 not a winger.

13.) 13 Aug 2017 12:16:03
I think it would be madness to sell him to spurs. He is so so young and if we were stupid enough to sell him to spurs, he will rip it up in that team.

People should go see tapes of Morata, Lukaku, kane, Bale, Benzema, lewondowski and the list goes on when they were 20/ 21, maybe then you will realize how good he is and he needs time and playing on a consistent basis.

Lingard is very average iMO and it will be about if Jose can live with Martial's mistakes/ flaws to allow him to grow as a player.

14.) 13 Aug 2017 14:35:30
Id loan him if it was the right club and he'd be guaranteed so many starts/ minutes. Wouldn't sell this summer. But he needs to sort his head out.

15.) 13 Aug 2017 14:48:57
I agree mort.

16.) 13 Aug 2017 15:38:11
Ken/ mort

Nothing wrong with the kids head and nothing wrong with shaw either. They are so young they will need playing time and will mature and learn and become smarter football players by experience as both have all the talent you want in a young player. The pressure of playing for a club like us is immense by both our fans and the media who loves a bad story about us and people need to cut them some slack.

17.) 13 Aug 2017 15:44:25
Martial clearly had issues last year because of his personal life.

You can have all the talent in the world but if you can't mentally cope with the pressure of playing for a big club then its going to have an effect.

18.) 13 Aug 2017 16:24:05
He's never physically played as a number 9 consistently. Even LVG played him on the left. Except when he had the shirt.

19.) 13 Aug 2017 17:56:54
We need a large squad. No need to sell players unless they offer nothing to the team. We have a very good squad. On paper a very strong first XI. I'd offload players who add nothing, keep the players who add something, even if off the bench.

20.) 13 Aug 2017 18:25:32
X files
On the money my man.

21.) 13 Aug 2017 18:49:27
Selling martial would be madness unless we had a buy back clause. He is going to be a top player, he is still young and has that something special and can change a game. Given a decent run in the team and i'm sure he will shine and change a few on heres opinions.

22.) 13 Aug 2017 20:41:49

Tell that to Jose. He doesn't seem to trust either so there must be something amiss.

23.) 13 Aug 2017 22:27:31
Took his goal well today and looked dangerous and direct.

24.) 13 Aug 2017 22:45:49
Good cameo today and lovely finish. Rash also looked good in the second half. Attacking options - makes me feel giddy inside.

25.) 14 Aug 2017 07:22:17
In a market where teams will blow their bank account for young talented players its counter intuitive to go sell young talent with huge potential because they are not the seasoned product. They get there by being able to play.

Most of us would have never seen Rashford had it not been for the injuries and the kid getting a chance. Michael keane was also deemed not good enough but a full season of playing elsewhere did wonders for the kid.

I think Martial is a top top player and better than a lot of players people mention and needs playing time. Its a long season and injuries will happen and we will need guys like him who can make a difference.

26.) 14 Aug 2017 14:14:53
100% spot on X Files.

Hi eds any truth in reports that the club are looking to bring in david de geas old goalkeeping coach emilio alvarez blanco from their time together at atletico madrid?


{Ed004's Note - Thought it was confirmed?}

It has been confirmed.

20 Apr 2018 14:46:03
According to di marzio, romelu lukaku has changed his agent, no longer with mino raiola.

Any chance paul pogba will do the same?


{Ed002's Note - None.}

1.) 20 Apr 2018 15:48:35
I read that, some agency that Jay-Z is involved with apparently.

2.) 20 Apr 2018 16:34:44
Big mistake, whether you loathe of like raiola, his speed dial is like the keys to the candy store, this jay-z agency will want him involved in more promotional work, want to negotiate better imaging rights, his contract etc, i reckon jose will need a sponsorship deal with anadin and andrews this summertime, nice one romelu!

3.) 20 Apr 2018 16:50:29
they probably think they are signing up Stormzy! personally feel united want to break all ties with Raiola.

4.) 20 Apr 2018 18:21:31
Lukaku moving away from an agent renowned for persistently moving his clients from pillar to post is hopefully good news for us.

However, it could also provide an insight into other situations at the club. Mostly the one with Pogba.

Six months ago we had 4 Raiola clients on our books. Now in the space of 4 months Mkhitaryan has moved to Arsenal, Zlatan was released from his contract to join LA Galaxy, and now Lukaku has left Raiola to join up with Jay-Z. Leaving just Pogba left.

Is Pogba's supposed unhappiness cause or effect. Has Raiola reacted to the loss of his clients at our club by whispering in Pogba's ear as he has before. Or is the club unhappy with Raiola and systematically removing him from the club. Maybe Lukaku realises the club's relations with Raiola are strained and him changing agents is him attempting to prolong his United career.

Or maybe I'm putting 2 and 2 together and coming up with 5 as usual. Lol.

However, if Pogba leaves this summer we will have gone from having four clients of Raiola on our books to none in six months.

5.) 20 Apr 2018 19:19:24
I thought Sergio Romero is a client of Mino.

6.) 20 Apr 2018 20:41:45
I'd forgotten about Romero being a Raiola client. Although there has been speculation he is keen to move on to get regular playing time. And to be honest I don't blame him. He has to be one of the best if not the best second choice keeper in world football. He is far too good to be a back up. I wouldn't be gutter if he left, I have high hopes of Joel Pereira. I would be happy for him to be our second choice.

7.) 21 Apr 2018 09:45:09
Didn't this happen weeks ago?

8.) 21 Apr 2018 15:45:16
Reports today pogba has been told to ditch the agent or move on.

{Ed002's Note - I assume this is Twitter? Who supposedly told him this, and why on earth would he consider doing such a thing?}

9.) 21 Apr 2018 16:08:37
No idea ed, why did lukaku.

{Ed002's Note - Because he is a half-wit.}



09 Mar 2018 14:47:22
Hypothetical question:

If united could only win one game out of liverpool and sevilla.

Which one would you want us to win and why?


{Ed004's Note - Draw tomorrow and win against Sevilla}

1.) 09 Mar 2018 16:30:39
Seville of course or we are out.

2.) 09 Mar 2018 16:34:49
I'm a United supporter so I want to win both, the moment we start deciding which is more important and where to place our eggs we will start to decline.

Not once did Sir Alex ever value one game over another. Our target should be to win everything, that doesn't happen unless you go into every game with the same desire to win.

3.) 09 Mar 2018 17:15:36
I think it was a hypothetical question shappy.
Shappy that's bs. Fergie rested players before important games as he was prioitising one result over another.
Of course he wanted to win both games but he took risks like all managers do in order to keep players fresh for a bigger game.

4.) 09 Mar 2018 17:41:33
Completely agree with Ken here. You have to have a pland to manage games and prioritise certain games.

If it was a straight choice i'd say Win against Sevilla and draw against Liverpool although all of us would want to win both games but the Liverpool games are always quite cagey and anything could happen because of the emotions involved.

We definitely ne3d to win against Sevilla or that is the end for us this year in champions league.

5.) 09 Mar 2018 18:59:44
Really ken, what makes you say that?

The first line is hypothetical question. My argument is that as a United supporter I could never wish for anything but a win against Liverpool. However, due to poor thinking of going for a 0-0 draw against Sevilla in the away leg we are now in a position where we have to win against Sevilla or we are out.

If I wanted to be a smart arse I would have said a win against Liverpool and a 0-0 draw against Sevilla with an penalty shoot out win. Which officially means we drew the game as the full time whistle has blown. lol.

6.) 09 Mar 2018 20:26:42
I thought that myself😂.



07 Mar 2018 22:05:23
Hypothetical question to get your guys opinion.

Would you rather have played nice football like spurs did tonight and get knocked out?


Defend resolutely for a 0-0 and go through to the quarter finals like spurs could have tonight.


1.) 07 Mar 2018 22:15:15
Spurs showed their naivety and European inexperience, tonight. A tough lesson, but one they'll have to suck up and learn from. We had a few hiccups in Europe before 99. If they're back in next season, and they keep hold of their best players, they should use tonight as a lesson to be learned.

2.) 07 Mar 2018 22:16:39
Rather play defensively and go through everyday of the week!

3.) 07 Mar 2018 22:17:03
We haven’t gone through.

4.) 07 Mar 2018 22:32:33
Good post nou.
Although as i said below it keeps happening to them terrible game management by poch and the players.

5.) 07 Mar 2018 23:00:21
Its a good point that, we had long learning curve before we eventually won it.

6.) 07 Mar 2018 23:27:33
No one will remember how you played but what you won. So i'd say grind out defensively and try to win the game.

Just look at Chelsea they won the Champions league with grinding out results and also had the luck on their side which every side needs in cup competitions.

7.) 07 Mar 2018 23:32:09
I would like to see that team stick together to see if they can make that final push and actually win a trophy. They may need a bit of luck at the right time and to learn from their mistakes.
Ithink this squad have 1 more year to turn themselves into winners before the vultures start circling and picking off the best players and a big club will talk poch into fullfilling his potential at their club. If they win and improve they could be London's biggest club for the next 5 years.

8.) 07 Mar 2018 23:36:12
People rember the great teams that win .

9.) 07 Mar 2018 23:53:47
I don't think anybody would choose a good performance over a result in a vital cup tie (even me) . Maybe a more realistic question would be, 'would you choose a 2 years of dull, uninspiring football and sneak a CL victory at the end of it - or play like the Utd of old and miss out on CL success on account of being unlucky playing good football in a one off game? ' In that case I'd choose the later every day of the week, I watch to enjoy it and not spend 2 years of my life watching pampered under performers jump around with a big cup for 10 mins - what about the other 80 games?

Spurs were a bit unfortunate tonight and over the two legs I think they were the better team - I bet their fans are proud of them, I certainly would be. Could have easily gone the other way and i don't think there is too much shame in pushing Juventus as close as they did.

They certainly made a much better fist of it than PSG did against Madrid.

10.) 08 Mar 2018 09:55:02
We were absolutely dreadful in the CL final in 99, no surprise playing without our 2 best midfielders, but nobody remembers that when we look back at how amazing a victory it was.

Anybody who could answer this saying they would prefer 'nice football' is deluded, football is about winning things not matter how well you play.

11.) 08 Mar 2018 10:35:38
You remembed we were dreadful.
Great for 90% of the season that year but we were second best in the final .
Which made the last 5 minutes even better.

12.) 08 Mar 2018 14:33:32
Is it not a bit of a loaded question pretend they played different and then state the result achieved is a goalless draw and asking if that would be a better way to go . Simply changing the question to would u rather spurs were absolutely gung-ho and won 4_3 than what happened gives u the same answer, both made up scenarios to fit a view point.

13.) 08 Mar 2018 14:38:38
Spot on GDS.

14.) 08 Mar 2018 15:51:58
I'm with slate on this you could just as easily say would you rather go through playing boring 1.0 playing crap or go through 10.0 playing great .
Would you rather win the epl playing pep poch or klipperty brand of football or win the title playing Jose.

15.) 08 Mar 2018 18:36:16
I’d rather win playing nice football. The two together, why does is have to be one or the other? City win playing lovely football.

16.) 08 Mar 2018 18:57:24
It doesn't have to be one or the other. i'd be delighted to win the league either way but i would prefer to win playing attractive football.
Tbh 978 passes from city last night great to watch but on that occasion they lost. Watching Barcelona towards the end of peps reign i thought was boring but there was obvious quality in their play the moment city are far from boring they are playing with more pace than Barcelona did.
United never played like city are playing now but we all enjoyed most of the last 30 years.

17.) 08 Mar 2018 21:42:40
If its one or the other?

Go through. easy question.

18.) 08 Mar 2018 21:43:39
i don't think it was the players inexperience that got to them rather it was the naeivity of poechettino not settling to solidify his defence, allegri took advantage of this, made some changes and stretched them out which allowed inter to score those two goals, poechettino should have told his players to tone down the pressure and maintain a sense of solidity imo.



15 Dec 2017 18:03:33
That wayne rooney fella is not doing bad for everton. Same amount of league goals as lukaku.

Worth a cheeky bid in january?




26 Oct 2017 22:15:27
Last season zlatan scored 17 of our 54 goals (less than bournemouth lol) in the league which roughly equates to 31%

This season Lukaku has scored 7 of our 22 league goals which is also 31% (smaller sample size i know) .

However Last season it was obvious that we were not getting goals from other areas. Have we even addressed that problem?

To win the league you are looking to get between 80-100 goals in the season and lukaku will probably get 20-25 which leaves a lot for the other to pick up.

What do you think the others should be aiming for this season? Likes of micky and mata have only scored two league goals this season which is not good enough.


1.) 27 Oct 2017 07:32:07

I said pre season this is a problem and we didn’t address it. Jose said he wanted a wide forward and Woodward did not deliver. It is why I believe we will not be likely to win the league but top three is our best hope.

2.) 27 Oct 2017 09:43:45
We have scored plenty of goals people are obsessed with pointing out the negatives and seem only capable about talking about the last 2 games.
It feels like people have been waiting for a bad game to say I told u so.

3.) 27 Oct 2017 10:54:16
Yeah I've been a biit guilty of that, I often give others stick for getting caught up in a moment and not taking a step back to see the bigger picture. I had us down as second to City, still think that is very possible, looking forward to a reaction on Saturday.

I am still concerned about Jose though but we shall see.

4.) 27 Oct 2017 11:11:21
Great point DSG we're still lacking some consistency from any of the 3 that normally play behind Lukaku!

Lukaku was always going to come in and replace Ibra's goals but our season will be defined by how much the likes of Rashford, Martial, Miki, Mata and Lingard can contribute!

Is there any chance Ibra will come back and partner Lukaku and maybe play just behind him as he often dropped deep last year anyway?

5.) 27 Oct 2017 11:11:42
It's prob a bit early to make a judgement either way, it's still a bit early in the season . City won 10 in a row at the start of last season .
That said I think there are far more positives than negatives so far this season and using 2 games against Liverpool and Huddersfield as the bench mark while ignoring everything before it seem a bit off .

All ready been a lot said about Kane missing for spurs but United also got more than 1 big name missing.
Win tomorrow and the last 2 games won't seem so bad .
Get beat and people will get more concerned.

6.) 27 Oct 2017 12:47:49
to be fair the 3 behind have changed due to injuries
Regarding the chipping in with goals, I can see us being more active in january than a lot think, with 2-3 additions.
Add ibra back as well as pogba and rojo who came on well before his injury I think things will look rosy after xmas.

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.

Under pochhetino martial would improve undoubtedly, a couple of years under poch and he would be at that hazard and sanchez (pre joining us) level. No reason why martial shouldn't be getting double figures in goals and assists every season.

He got his wide forward that we missed out on in summer so don't see why he'd need to sign anyone else unless someone leaves.
