Hi EDs,

Any truth in the Darmian to Juventus rumours?

Don't know about anyone else, but if he's good enough for them he's certainly good enough for us unless he really desires a move back to Italy.


{Ed002's Note - Yes - this is quite old news. Inter were also keen but since January Juventus have been planning on him.}

1.) 21 Jun 2017 08:25:03
Thanks Ed very interesting. I suppose if, as you say, we are looking to Semedo too he will be surplus to requirements.

{Ed002's Note - Yes Eric - he is not wanted.}

2.) 21 Jun 2017 09:26:41
Darmian isn't suited to the EPL. He offers very little going forward and is very slow. Serie A is much more suited to his style of play.

3.) 21 Jun 2017 09:55:45
Tend to agree with you Wazza. Good move for Darmian though as he gets a return to Turin and to a great club.

4.) 22 Jun 2017 01:42:53
While I'm fine with darmian moving on, I hope it doesn't blur the fact that he was a decent player for us. Strong defensively, perhaps a little too cautious going forward, but he always put in a good shift, willing to play on either flank, and was by no means a failure at united. If he was willing to be a role player behind legit elite fbs, I'd be fine keeping him. If he does move on, I for one will have positive memories and gratitude to the player. He's done the united shirt proud.



30 Jan 2017 08:19:30
Hi all. Amy info on where Young may be off to please?


{Ed002's Note - Nope.}

1.) 30 Jan 2017 11:20:36
"I am waiting for January 31 to know what is going on. I am not happy if he leaves, but he is the only player that I am informed has a possibility of leaving.

"That is why he didn't play and I gave chances to other people, because I don't know if he is going to stay. If I could choose, definitely yes he would stay with us. "jose on young

2.) 30 Jan 2017 15:57:22
I think he might go to Sunderland

3.) 30 Jan 2017 19:57:09
back to watford maybe

Whispers that Memphis is off to Nice!


1.) 05 Jan 2017 20:19:49
That would be nice for him!

{Ed025's Note - dont give up the day job brad.. :)

2.) 05 Jan 2017 23:29:16
That's a Lille bit of a corny joke Brad. I hope the little Nancy boy does well though, wherever he goes. I don't want Toulouse him because he's as fierce as a Lyon and it Angers me when people slag him off - it's Bordeaux-line rude. He Caen do well if given the chance.

I'll get my Monacoat.

3.) 06 Jan 2017 06:57:31
Magnificent rwwd 😂

{Ed025's Note - very clever...he could be an evertonian if he keeps that up deano.. :)

4.) 06 Jan 2017 09:57:33
hahaha round of applause RWWD made me laugh :-)

5.) 06 Jan 2017 11:13:49
Really takes the biscuit

{Ed025's Note - good stuff wallace..

6.) 06 Jan 2017 11:40:15
RWWD I like that you are Sochaux he can succeed, he's a good player and could be as good as Sedan if he fulfills his potential if i Marseille so myself

{Ed025's Note - are you sure your not scousers kenny?, great wit from the guys on here.. :)

7.) 07 Jan 2017 12:36:43
Thanks Eric79 for keeping us aBREST of the latest developments re. Memphis



09 Oct 2016 01:07:06
Bakayoko of Monaco and Coleman at Everton reportedly the next two in. Bye bye Darmian.


1.) 09 Oct 2016 08:12:47
Wonder where TFM is supposed to break through and play if we buy players for the positions he plays in.

2.) 09 Oct 2016 09:08:24
Good point. Still, I'd like to see us go for Coleman!

3.) 16 Oct 2016 10:23:09

I don't see TFM at right back, more centre midfield but he has to show he is good enough.



10 Aug 2016 18:03:36
Sunderland keen to become Man Utd reserves. They have tabled bids for Fellaini (accepted) and Januzaj. I believe the Fellaini move is a transfer and Adnan a loan.


1.) 10 Aug 2016 18:37:41
I know a lot not me but a lot want Felliani sold but its not happening yes good by Adnan but the wig will be Pogbas partner and rightly so he can play a bit is ruthless towards the opposition defends and attacks corners and set pieces and always gives it his all Jose thinks this so he safe even if a big offer comes in i could be wrong but i don't get it wrong very often lol.

{Ed041's Note - I'd be gobsmacked if Fellani is pogba's CM partner.

2.) 10 Aug 2016 18:53:33
you will be gobsmacked then ed Jose has defended Felliani in interviews and likes his all round game i beleave he is looking at out muscling teams and they don't come much bigger stronger and rougher than the wig.

{Ed041's Note - I don't think I will at all, I think you will see Carrick, Hererra and Spyder play far more games than Fellani.

3.) 10 Aug 2016 20:25:01
Ed Jose has said alread the wig will be very important for the first team he defended the back pass for Vardy stating the amount of water that slowed the ball as the thing at fault he has played him with carrick and i'm shore he will go for out powering teams ie the wig i know people like to use Felliani as our scapegoat but Jose as much as plenty don't like the idea will use him much more than the others.

{Ed041's Note - yes he is important the squad is.

Even the grumpiest of grumpy Utd fans would say that was awesome. Like Utd of old. 6 points from 6 very difficult points. Well done Jose and team.




25 Nov 2017 14:53:04
Hey guys I can't go to the game today. Anyone know of any good links to watch it for free?




20 Nov 2017 08:40:11
Dear Santa,

Here is my Man Utd Xmas wish list:

1. Danny Rose

That is all.


1.) 20 Nov 2017 11:21:16
Anyone else think we should try and beat Citeh to signing Sanchez? Reason being he would get in to our first team whereas he would probably be on the bench at City.

2.) 20 Nov 2017 11:42:18
Rash and martial in the same team, pogba back and firing, moderate opposition and plenty of goals and the feel good factor back .
I hope we don't forget how badly our midfield suffered creatively without pogba and if fellani leaves I hope we get a back up cm, not easy unlikely to be a first team regular and must have some creatively and be able to see a decisive forward pass but not cost the earth as it basically cover for pogba . I'd monitor shelvey over the next month . I agree rose would be a great addition .

3.) 20 Nov 2017 13:48:46
Def go for Sanchez.

4.) 20 Nov 2017 22:29:41
Rose and Sanchez will be fine then.

5.) 21 Nov 2017 00:51:23
I'm sorry, did you just say Shelvey? Voldemort's scouse illegitimate son? Behave.



06 Nov 2017 13:23:24
I mentioned a little further down thebiage the uneasy Jose / Utd alliance at the moment.

Jose himself is getting more bristly and the fans are beginning to murmur their discontent. On here and in the wider fan community.

I wanted the old Jose at Utd - this version doesn't feel right to me. However, I'm torn as he has won us two good trophies and we are still 2nd but the football is dire and is a slight upgrade on LVG. The balance of our team has not felt right in years.

I think changing him is too rash - but we shall see at the end of the season just how the land lies. I'd not be surprised with a change to be honest if his contract talks don't go well and he continues to simmer.


1.) 06 Nov 2017 14:17:56
For me the question should be are we moving in the right direction?

Have we progressed since LvG? Yes clearly.

Have we progressed since last season? It's hard to say for definate, we are on the whole playing better football. The last few weeks have been poor, but we have handed out a few beatings early on which we didn't manage last season. I feel when we get key players back from injury we will see an upturn in performance levels. We are currently second place, in the league we finished 6th last season. So some progress has been made. But it is hard to fully judge until the end of the season. In May for example we could be out of all the cups and in 8th place, or we could still be first place with the UCL, FA cup and league cup all under our belt in a historic quadruple.

Both are unlikely scenarios, but both still possible. Let's hold off judgement until we can catagorically say if we have progressed or regressed from last season.

2.) 06 Nov 2017 14:39:22
To go from 6th to Champions is some jump so perhaps our early form raised expectations too high. I expect by us to comfortably top 4, hopefully 2nd. There is a lot of moaning and groaning right now, including from me, and Beast has made some good points. Do we have a plan was one of them and I agree that not sure how we are setting up.

3.) 06 Nov 2017 15:18:42
I think anyone wanting mourinho sacked need their heads examined. For all the valid criticism of our recent performances and his overall tactics, demeanor and constant moaning, we are still 2nd even if 8 points behind city and did win 2 trophies last season.

4.) 06 Nov 2017 16:23:43
I don't want him sacked, I don't particularly like him but I don't want him sacked. I would like to ask him why are we playing such slow boring football, why do we play for 90 minutes in one of the best leagues in the world with international players and only muster 2 shots on target - why can't we string 5 passes together, we train 5 days a week and we can't even do the basics - does he feel that we are inferior to other teams not like Spurs, or city, barcelona, madrid or juve but teams like Benfica, Basle, Southampton who played rings around us recently in large parts of the games , they might not have got the points but they gave us a game where we were lucky to win. Is there coaching better than ours?

Those would be my starters.

5.) 06 Nov 2017 17:14:45
Because our 2 man midfield gets overwhelmed by teams playing 3 in the middle. they are constantly rushed with very little time to move the ball. Happened at Liverpool and same at Chelsea. we get way with it when Pogba plays because he is a physical specimen.



22 Aug 2017 14:48:46
What if this Johnny Evans to City is just a smokescreen and Jose actually wants him back. Would you take him (putting aside whatever the transfer fee would be? ) .

I would and send Smalling the other way.


1.) 22 Aug 2017 14:58:34
He's about on a par with Smalling. Stick or twist? I'll stick.

2.) 22 Aug 2017 14:59:40
I'd swap Evans for Smalling. No brainer.

3.) 22 Aug 2017 15:42:34
There was a point a few years back when Evans started a Champions League game against Madrid ahead of Rio. At that time he was probably playing better football than Vidic too.

Given how limited his chances were with us he did incredibly well. Since leaving and playing regular football he's improved his game massively. It does make me wonder how good he might have been if he'd played regularly from a younger age.

Personally I think he'd walk into our first eleven.

4.) 22 Aug 2017 19:00:14
Don't want either tbh.

5.) 22 Aug 2017 19:41:36
It's obvious our main target is not available so I wouldn't buy anyone else this window we have more than enough imo.

6.) 23 Aug 2017 12:10:35
Maybe this smoke screen will have a domino effect on exactly what we need.

Poch is at the right club for him at the right time. He’d be crazy to leave just yet and needs to get Spurs winning some Cups at the very least.

Danny Rose will be a great signing. I’d keep Shaw (at least until the summer) and let them battle it out for the LB/ LWB spot and equally do the same with Valencia / Young on the right. On that note hats off to Young for his incredible form.

If we need to raise funds, Blind and Darmian are obvious casualties in this for me.

Nice goal too.

I know he’s not not been amazing at left back, but surely Jose can coach Rojo to be our main left back? He’s better than Blind and Young, has decent pace and distribution and plays there for Argentina!

Griez and Bale are now quite different players but I think the ship has sailed on Bale and we should be looking to players who can stay fit but be equally effective. He’s too bulky now and his explosive pace means he’s always susceptible to an injury. Personally I think the full back positions, especially left back are much more urgent positions to address to give us more balance and width.

Martial, Jones, Pogba, Fellaini, Young, Valencia, Lingard, Rojo, Herrera (last season) all massively improved under Jose.

Shaw is a busted flush and needs to be sold. Lukaku will come good and Rashford is young and inconsistent. Others don’t seem to either have the right attitude or just aren’t good enough. Miki, Darmian etc.

I agree. Jose takes the blame for me this week as he got his tactics wrong and City played us like a banjo.

Too deep, too negative and not sure why we didn’t stick with the 3 at the back that’s been working?

His cautious and pragmatic approach is not a natural fit for us. It is when we win, when we lose it’s meltdown. Jose gets paid the big bucks to make these calls, so on this occasion he merits criticism as he got it wrong. As above though, this nonsense on not being able to trust players. Maybe give them some confidence and they might surprise us. On paper, our teams were pretty well matched bar Pogba’s absence.

We are making progress and with a few tweaks at full back and midfield I think we are not far off.

Credit where it’s due, City were just better today. The work they do on the rare occasions they don’t have the ball is very impressive indeed. Harassed us, penned us in and forced the long ball tactics. Pep played us perfectly.

Rojo throws everything in every game. He’s great and trains well, loves the club and sits in the Utd fans at away matches showing us his commitment. Shaw has done none of this and is in his third year with us. Jose is putting him in the shop window.

Shaw needs to take it one game at a time and give everything every time he pulls on a red shirt. I’ve been one of his biggest critics, and if Rose is available I’d take him.

Don’t forget he was asleep for Moscow’s goal so whilst a positive start and good match from him, let’s see what happens. Shaw has proved he can’t commit to training at an elite club. Maybe he’s grown up and realised what’s needed. I hope so, but fear it’s a false dawn.
