Really want luke shaw to stay at the club, yeah he may be over weight or whatever critics say about him but the guy is still young? with good coaching he will be a class left back and will come to bite us in the back side in a few years.


1.) 15 May 2018 23:14:16
Coaching no. He needs to fix himself before anything, he’s had plenty of chances. If he were to stay he should be on a pay as you play contract that would get his arse in gear.

2.) 15 May 2018 23:55:37
Lacks the discipline and fight for me. Had enough time to make himself our left back. Personally sell him. Don't think he good as people make him out to be.

3.) 16 May 2018 07:14:33
What is his deal.
I don’t see how a guy that has all this in front of him looks so out of shape.

I read somewhere that his attitude at Southampton was poor too.

4.) 16 May 2018 07:43:49
If Jose is staying as manager then we may as well cash in. Maybe another manager will get the best out of Luke, but the relationship/ trust between player and coach isn't going to be beneficial to him.

Shaw has been very good almost every game he has played to my eyes, but then he is dropped or slagged off. The manager clearly doesn't like the way he plays the game and Luke obviously lacks the desire to amend his ways to fit the managers wishes. Shame as he impresses me and I think given a run of games he will improve even more. For Young to be constantly picked ahead of him tells us all we need to know about his future I fear.

5.) 16 May 2018 07:54:50
You mean he needs coaching to tell him to keep in shape because he is a professional athlete and the minimum requirement for his job that he must live like an athlete?

I do hate some of these tv pundits but when they talk about mental attitude not being right in the team I see permanently sad faced martial, tubby shaw, preening pogba and think yep, they have a point.

6.) 16 May 2018 07:56:59
I agree with you there Beast, It was in one of our recent games Shaw burst forward and hit the post. The response from JM was to berate him for forgetting his defensive duties. Tells us all we need to know.

7.) 16 May 2018 08:29:45
Shaw needs to go, for whatever reason his physical fitness and attitude for a top end professional is lacking and Repeated managers have not had faith in him.
His time with us is done.
I hope he moves and is successful but we need to move on and get a true number one left back in with Young as cover.

8.) 16 May 2018 10:49:26
Similar to what rashford is doing . These young players think they are superstars . Which Cleary not the case as yet. Agree with recent posts how many more chances does Shaw need . It's a privileged position to be In being a high earner at such a young age. For me Rashford is going backwards in his development. Become very ball greedy of late.

9.) 16 May 2018 11:50:37
Pogthedog: "It was in one of our recent games Shaw burst forward and hit the post. " Sentence should end - and he was sent a bill for smashing it the fat sod!
Seriously if a 22 year old needs cuddles and kisses to motivate him to get himself into shape and play for one of the biggest clubs in the world, it shows his worth, 0.As for his ability, since his leg break he really doesn't commit to a challenge which is probably a physcological problem that we can understand but it could lead to further injuries. Cruel to be kind ;get rid.

10.) 16 May 2018 12:38:26
Not sure why many of our fans are slagging off Shaw - have you actually watched him play, it seems like you are hating on him simply because the manager doesn't rate him?

He plays as an attacking full back - we want this.
He works his socks off - we want this.
He battles and looks like he cares - we want this.
He is often in our top 3 performers when he actually plays - we want this.

He has been one of our most consistent performers when he actually plays. So those of you criticising him are simply parroting what the manager says or judging on things not related to his actual performance in my opinion.

Sure he could look trimmer, maybe if he played consecutive games he would look better on the eye, but who cares about that. Definitely could be more professional off the pitch from what I read, but surely the actual performance is what matters most?

I personally hate how Pogba strolls around the pitch all game, he looks like a supreme athlete but he doesn't play like one - he plays how Shaw looks and Shaw plays how Pogba looks, so looks can be deceiving. Most of us want somebody like Sandro, Rose or Alaba - all of them play in a similar way to Shaw.

If Shaw played a few bad games on the spin I could understand the lack of support, but the fact he rarely does despite being treated like rubbish should tell us a lot about him, more so than managers with axes to grind or reporters wanting to appeal to the masses and take the easy angle.

Luke Shaw could do more to help himself, but how many times can you get slapped down for doing nothing wrong and then still want to fight back, especially with fans choosing to ignore the performance and just parrot the BS.

11.) 16 May 2018 13:10:10
I have watched Shaw play, He has pace, likes to attack, but his end product isn't good, defensively poor, But like many of our players he has moment of brilliance but is not effectively offensively or defensively.

I don't know how he performs in the training, but he had limited chances to improve his game.

12.) 16 May 2018 14:13:32
Kenedy - is that Valencia you are describing as well?

13.) 16 May 2018 14:46:06
The Beast, We need new LB and RB, to compete.

14.) 16 May 2018 16:17:21
Beast I agree with a lot of that .
It's the same with martial the hating started when he was rumoured to be on the move .
For what ever reason people need to justify the sale and treatment of the player.

15.) 16 May 2018 17:29:40
Think Jose will just let Damian leave. Young will be back up to Valencia and Shaw will be back up to Sandro.

16.) 16 May 2018 17:56:39
Definitely mate RB and LB are essential, but only if they are permitted to play like modern full backs, otherwise it's same old same old - lacking numbers in attack.

Totally agree Jred - I'm waiting for the Pogba transfer hype to kick in and watch people go 180 on that once it becomes clear that he (his reps) is attempting to manipulate the club through the media and he'll be on his bike.

I treat it all with a pinch of salt, but I do want to stand up for players that actually do the job as far as I'm concerned when/ if picked that is.

17.) 16 May 2018 19:06:30
I don't see how anyone can judge Shaw properly without not only giving him an extended run in the side but also having him play behind a consistently selected left sided winger.

18.) 16 May 2018 22:44:00
Does anyone watch Shaw? He’s unfit/ borderline fat for an athlete and is constantly out of position!

Enjoy your career at Newcastle lad.

19.) 17 May 2018 12:52:53
3 managers have all had the same issue with Shaw,

maybe he will watch the world cup thinking i could have been on that plane, like the liverpool full back whos only 19.

or he can go on holiday have a fun time and come back with the same attitude.

theres a point where nothing can be done and sadly i think shaw is almost at that point.

its a shame because before his leg break he was immense.

20.) 17 May 2018 15:19:03
This sort of thing drives me nuts. Every time he plays, he is good, and still gets bashed. Yes, he is a little inconsistent, and his defensive positionng could improve, but what do you expect when he hardly gets a game?

It's Mourinho's perogative as manager to decide a player doesn't fit, but some of you lot citing performances as justification just annoys me, because he isn't playing badly at all. And if it's the way he plays which is a problem then the guys being mentioned aren't going to fare any better.

Oh how carrick will be missed - most underrated player of his generation imo. Would love to see him managing one day.


1.) 13 May 2018 19:50:38
Underrated, who’d have thought?

2.) 13 May 2018 22:09:27
Oh oh. You've gone and mentioned that word. 😊.

3.) 13 May 2018 22:19:40
Not by us he wasn’t. He was absolute class for Utd.

4.) 14 May 2018 05:56:29
Very underrated.



12 May 2018 13:32:37
What are everyones opinions on Scott Mctominay? Personally think he's a great player with bags of potential - yet Gary Neville thinks otherwise, ”not good enough on the ball for a united midfielder”. He did say however he sees a future for him at centre back. opinions?


1.) 12 May 2018 13:41:36
Early days, often youngsters don’t end up in the positions they start. I like him, very composed, plays things simple, looks good where he is atm but we will see. I like that there is little hype around him, I see him in our squad at least for many years.

2.) 12 May 2018 13:54:05
Has done ok when called upon. Applies himself well never found wanting in effort. I can see him being a squad member for many years. It's up to him to become a regular starter. Lots of time for him to develop. Like Fletcher or Jessie before him.

3.) 12 May 2018 14:03:17
"Great player" - not sure if your being serious or not.

4.) 12 May 2018 14:55:25
Very early days got a long way to go.

5.) 12 May 2018 15:19:58
I agree with Gary, not quite Utd material - should have a decent career playing for the likes of West Brom, Newcastle etc. First game looked good, but after that mainly been anonymous. In saying that you could label 75% of our team with that tag, so maybe there is more to him than I have seen. There needs to be if we aren't going to simply sign £50m+ midfielders instead of him.

6.) 12 May 2018 15:45:37
Yh he's been very good whenever he doesn't have the ball at his feet. When he has to do something with the ball he's been poor.

But having said that with carrick retiring is there anyone in the squad apart from pogba and martial who are good with the ball at their feet?

Matic and herrera do their best work defensively, fellaini is deployed as a peter crouch style big man, lingard does his best stuff off the ball with his clever runs. Mata flatters to deceive reguarly, rashfords decision making is questionable and sanchez gives the ball away like its gone out of fashion.

7.) 12 May 2018 15:53:43
I agree about his ability on the ball, but he has a long way to go. Has a good chance to progress if Jose stays here.

8.) 12 May 2018 16:23:07
I’m a big fan and could see him being a long term successor to matic. Very good at winning the ball back, and likes a challenge. Something we haven’t had from any midfielder in a long time here.

9.) 12 May 2018 17:27:15
I think he does the basics well and is very disciplined. But I do not think he will be more than a squad player. But a very useful squad player that all title winning sides need. A Darren fletcher type of squad player who works really hard and fulfils the manager’s orders. Someone that can be relied on and trusted. Fair play to the lad he has taken his chances really well. But someone like Andreas pereira for me has more talent and ability to make it at united. Problem is whether he will get a chance under Jose. And if so, does he have the mentality.

10.) 12 May 2018 22:51:05
I know we bandy the phrase about far too much, but, "great' player already? I was one of his biggest fans since pre-season, but my God he's got a long way to go yet.



07 Aug 2017 17:52:47
Hi all, new user.
Anyone else think that we're going ott with the signings? Interest in bertrand is unnecessary: Luke Shaw, on his day, is a quality lb with blind and rojo to cover. doesn't get much better than Antonio Valencia at rb and to sign a winger would give martial, mkhi, lingard and mata all less game time?


1.) 07 Aug 2017 18:04:31
Some would agree we are strong enough personally i dont. I think we need at least 2 more players in. We just have to wait and see what happens.

2.) 07 Aug 2017 18:11:21
"Martial, mkhi, lingard and mata". all prefer centrally. The biggest problem we have at the minute is we don't have any wingers, we are playing people OOP. We need at least 1 more winger.

We need a RB. Regardless of how well Tony V has done there, he has no end product.

I'll agree on the left back position. Shaw needs to step up but this season is surely his last chance.

I think we need a RB and RW then we should have enough for a top 4 finish and a good CL run.

3.) 07 Aug 2017 18:15:39
Fsi, and in 3 seasons how many times has Shaw been "on his day"? Blind and Rojo are both poor LB's, both much better at CB. We need a good LB to compete wi H Shw for that position. Still believe and out and out wide player is needed.

4.) 07 Aug 2017 23:01:12
Shaw has played two good games for us since we signed him. So overrated it's unreal.

The defence is awful and the medfield is mediocre, the only position I say could argue to be the best in the tournement is the striker postion with Harry Kane- can’t see us getting past the quarters.
