Hi, does anyone know if the reports linking Andrea Berta as director of football to us are true? And if so is it a step in the right direction?

GD

1.) 27 Feb 2016 16:25:12
All I know is what I've read. SAF tried to sign him as a 17 year old but failed. He plays off the right but is left footed like Robben. So he would be a right sided option.


2.) 27 Feb 2016 22:12:22
Berardi is better, younger and has a better goal and assist return by miles in the last 3.5 seasons. If you want a right winger from Italy you buy Berardi.


3.) 29 Feb 2016 10:24:51
I was always under the impression that Berardi was the better of the two, although they are both different types of players. From what I've seen Berardi is certainly more like a striker who plays wide to find space and exploit it similar to how players like Henry, Neymar, Messi and our own Martial use that space to get the run on the opposition.
Where as Bernardeschi is more like a a traditional winger or No.10, more creative for his team mates rather than looking to get the goals himself. Admittedly I've only seen him in the 1-1 draw with Spurs and a game earlier in the season against Sampdoria which ended 2-0 to Fiorentina. Both times he was lively and energetic and caused his marker plenty of problems.

I think it depends on what you want from a wide player. I feel that with the options we have of Martial or Memphis on the left then we will be better off looking for a creative player for the right rather than someone looking for goal themselves. Someone in the front three should be looking to pass more often than shoot. lol.

But like I said I don't know enough about Bernardeschi to know whether he would be a success in England.


4.) 29 Feb 2016 12:23:37
Hi Shappy,

Berardi has assisted far more than Bernardeshi over the last 3.5 years. They have 5 goals each and 3 assists each this season but Berardi has played 10 fewer games. Defensively they have very similar stats Bernardeshi has better passing stats but this could be explained by the fact he plays closer to the midfield. Bernardeshi's performances drop off when he plays further forward.

Goals win games if you play with 4-3-3 or a slight variation of Berardi is your man. Memphis- Martial - Berardi would offer a very fluid and skilful front 3. Plus with the emergence of Rashford you could move them all around (Berardi like Martial can play across the front 3 positions) .

Hopefully Memphis comes good and gets to the level he was performing at at PSV and we buy a wide forward for the right.


5.) 29 Feb 2016 12:37:23
If I had the choice Beradi would be my first choice aswell!

The guy has been impressing for months on end now and I think now it's time for him to take a step up and imply himself in a new team ie Manchester United?


6.) 01 Mar 2016 14:51:06
Some sites are now linking us with Beradi?

I hope there is some truth in these rumours!

Awesome signing if we can pull this one off!

But, A solid keeper and defence needs to be primary targets!

Mustafi, Laporte and Butland ALL linked too?


7.) 01 Mar 2016 22:55:14
Berardi will end up at a decent Italian team ie one of the Milan Clubs, Italian players don't usually do well in England tbh

Goalkeeper situation if De Gea goes, we will enter the market, if he stays, we won't

I think a CB is needed, Jones a liability and at best our 3rd choice, Mustafi is decent, Laporte is wanted by City, I think United will look at Stones seriously, only issue is we need someone bit more "ready" and commanding, my first choice is Hummels but think he could be off to Spain before England

Looking at the squad at the moment, I have listed 3 positions we need addressing

Centre Back, Centre Midfield and a Right Wing

Centre Back we discussed, the CM could be Renato Sanches I reckon, think he fit, Right Wing is interesting, Jesse Lingard is doing a decent job but reckon we need competition their, pipeline dream is Gareth Bale, logically we could be looking at Mahrez, Guedes etc.

Players to be sold

Bastian Schweinstger - No longer the player he was, basically taking up our wage budget, I would move him on

Marouane Felliani - No against him but isn't the type of player we like

Antonio Valencia - Just a bit part player.


8.) 02 Mar 2016 09:03:30
Shane,

Zola was terrible eh?


9.) 02 Mar 2016 10:09:10
Largely agree Shane. I too think Shane will be closely looked at. i'd like another young eh get, Bernardeshi is popular at the moment and I like the fact that he is very creative and cuts inside like Robben. Saúl I think might've the midfield target, rumoured to have rejected a contract too.

I also think that we need another striker despite the emergence of Rashford. Someone young like Morata or Icardi who can be rotated I and out the side. Last point, I'd love to see Memphis tried on the right also, think he could do well.


10.) 02 Mar 2016 10:36:32
I can't see Saul leaving Atletico, he will get his contract he is after

Memphis is best at cutting in, Ronaldo like, he could do a decent job on the right but is far more effective on the left

I'm not sure about the striker situation tbh with Rashford emerging, Martial is seen as the future no 9 for us.

Graham hunter has come out and said pep wants to manage United next. But that doesn't mean to say United want him and that the hierarchy at United are happy to keep lvg.

GD

1.) 17 Dec 2015 08:05:16
This makes me Sad!


2.) 17 Dec 2015 08:28:00
Hes good but not the only good manager available . The only issue with him his own style of play and we have realised how the passing philosphy works. We just need a manager that's going to get the best of what we have.


3.) 17 Dec 2015 09:37:09
The boardroom better look over their shoulders, if they didn't appease the United fans, it won't be the "manager" they be chanting to be sacked.


4.) 17 Dec 2015 09:53:09
The passing philosophy works as long as you pass in the right direction and at pace. I read something the other day that actually makes a lot of sense it was saying that when we don't have possession we don't press high enough up the pitch so we win it back in our half meaning we have to travel 50/60 yds to get to the oppositions goal and that we don't do this at pace which in turn let's the opp get back so if we could press 20yds higher up the pitch it would make a lot of difference the only problem with this is without herrera in the middle we have nobody quick enough to cover the ground to press.


5.) 17 Dec 2015 10:23:05
If the board don't go for him and he goes for City and is successful, then they should not be forgiven for trusting this clown.


6.) 17 Dec 2015 10:32:27
Singh I can't really see any other top coaches becoming available that we will consider other than Pep and Ancelotti, maybe Conte but that's about it. Jose in my opinion should have got the job when SAF went but now he is damaged goods so I am struggling to see where the club goes if LVG is a goner 😆😆.


7.) 17 Dec 2015 12:03:23
If pep leaves Bayern I imagine they will get ancelotti in.


8.) 17 Dec 2015 12:54:54
We need to make a swift action plan, mis management will not only cost us a top manager, it will also make us question the board members as well.


9.) 17 Dec 2015 13:26:39
According to build Carlo has already agreed a 3 year deal with Munich TBA next week.


10.) 17 Dec 2015 13:38:38
hunter has said a lot things more often than not its bs.


11.) 17 Dec 2015 15:37:45
The negative perception of Graham Hunter is purely down to twitter fools who lack the capability to understand basic information.

{Ed001's Note - are you sure? Or is it because, like everyone employed by Sly, they are expected to pump out info on all and sundry and will often end up passing off opinion as information. Not always on purpose, but it is a problem with the SSN bunch, as they don't get the time to fact check before they are expected to give out information.}


12.) 17 Dec 2015 16:08:16
I like Graham as a journalist and he doesn't appear to be the sensationalist sort (see Balague) . Regardless the perception on twitter is that he said we were signing Ramos and Thiago both of which obviously didn't happen. The problem is he never actually said that at all, he just reported that Ramos wanted out of Madrid as they weren't offering the money he deserved and if he were to leave he wanted us. That could well have been true but either way he got paid so that ended that one. With Thiago he reported we were in a position to sign him. Unfortunately Pep and Bayern then came in and he went there. The issue I have is that people twist these words and say 'Graham Hunter doesn't know anything, he said we were signing Ramos and Thiago and he was wrong' which just simply isn't true.

{Ed001's Note - except that he was wrong on both, Ramos was never interested in leaving Madrid, he just wanted a pay rise and so there was no club he wanted if he left. As for Thiago, that is a load of crap, United never made any move for him, and Thiago always wanted to go with Pep. So he was wrong on both counts, whether he said you were signing them or not.}


13.) 17 Dec 2015 16:41:14
I mean. that's what Hunter said though isn't it. He wants a pay rise and if he doesn't get it then he would leave for United. That's probably exactly what Ramos fed out to increase his leverage - so is Hunter wrong for reporting that?

Fair enough on Thiago. I just think Hunter gets a worse reputation than is fair.

{Ed001's Note - Hunter is wrong because everyone knew it was not true but he put it out anyway and it led to the situation where the club made an arse of itself trying to sign him.}


14.) 17 Dec 2015 16:47:51
So you're saying we tried to sign him because Hunter put a story out saying we were going to sign him?

{Ed001's Note - there is certainly an element of that to it yes. It was what convinced the club to ask for him to be included in any deal for de Gea.}


15.) 17 Dec 2015 16:53:17
Ah, well it seems my overall perception of Graham Hunter was incorrect. Thanks for the insight Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - it is not his fault, it is the way they work, they have to say something even when there is nothing.}


16.) 18 Dec 2015 13:15:16
Which, if true, proves the board don't have a clue what they're doing. LVG is terrible and will only get worse!


 

 

12 Aug 2015 13:28:54
Not sure how true this is from various Spanish media but apparently Ramos has agreed to a contract extension (no surprise) and we are very close to deals for otamendi and pedro. Would be a very good window with those 2 additions I think

Just read something from an Italian reporter who is like a reporter mainly for juventus, says ourselves and Chelsea are in talks with axel witsels representatives along with juve? Anyone think this may be true?

GD

1.) 19 Jun 2015 21:05:06
ED2 the other day did say on the Chelsea page, if I remember correctly, that they had been in discussions regarding Witsel, so who know's, we might of made an approach too. Still would prefer Schneiderlin.

I've heard a rumour that the reason Rojo is number 16 and 5 is now vacant is because Rio is to come out of retirement. It's just a rumour though so if you put money on it and it's not true please don't ask me for a refund.

GD

1.) 10 Aug 2018 15:54:29
Makes sense, Rio is the right age demographic for Jose Mourinho. Lol.


2.) 10 Aug 2018 16:40:54
Or a January signing maybe.


3.) 10 Aug 2018 18:19:57
Rojo is 16 for Argentina, it’s never been free before so he’s asked for it now it is, no conspiracies.

Hi does anyone know if after the transfer window closes this week PL clubs would still be able to make loan signings up until 31st of August? With a view to sign permanently on 1st jan 19?

GD

{Ed002's Note - No, the transfer window will be closed.}

How's that gd? Its not really my fault if you don't understand the fundamentals of the basic concepts of the transfer deadline, what would be the point in the transfer deadline if you could still loan. Why have a deadline.

Morning all, just after a little help or point in the right direction. One of my best friends recently lost his little boy due to a rare condition. In his honour and to raise awareness and also support the brilliant nicu where the doctors and nurses looked after the family he's holding a black tie charity event, and wants to auction or maybe raffle prizes. So the reason I ask on here is I think I've seen posters mention the right channels to go down to contact clubs in the past? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

What does every one think of mourinhos latest comments that it's not the end of the world if city were to win the title today after playing us and that we bounced back after his Chelsea had done the same to us? Whilst I agree it's not the end of the world as much as I'd hate it, arsenal did it to us at ot we bounced back to but why does he bring up his own successes against United to highlight a point? Guys a tit if you ask me.

GD

1.) 07 Apr 2018 11:01:33
Classic Mourinho, take the pressure off the team while blowing his own trumpet. I don't really pay attention to what managers say in staged press conferences. It's what they do that counts.

Jose has repeatedly said Shaw can be the best LB in the league and he has a future here, yet then drops him and refuses to play him. A clear indication of a manager saying one thing then doing another.

Much like Wenger being able to see his team was denied a clear penalty from 60 yards away but he didn't see the foul by his player 10 feet in front of him on the half way line.

Managers talk garbage, sometimes to take pressure off their players, sometimes to apply pressure to another manager/ team and sometimes to deflect away from their own failings.

Much like Pep choosing this moment to say his team was offered the chane to sign Pogba in January. It was said to add pressure to Jose. If Jose doesn't play Pogba today can you imagine the fallout in the press. So Pep has pressured Mourinho into possibly playing a player he didn't want to play changing his set up and tactics and disrupting his plans for the game. Also it takes a lot of heat off of City's poor result mid week.


2.) 07 Apr 2018 11:30:35
I agree with what he's saying to a point though and I understand why they do say these kind of things I don't understand why he brings up United past failures where he's succeeded against them not really endearing himself to the fans.


3.) 07 Apr 2018 12:32:14
Is he not just bringing up his own personal experience of when it happened, why would he talk about a time he wasn’t involved in to explain his experience of it?

Some people just look for problems where there are none.


4.) 07 Apr 2018 13:42:10
No they don't actually, people realise when someone associated with the club says the wrong things I won't be the only one saying it. moyes got jumped on for talking rubbish. If he was going to bring up times of the past about the club why not positive ones and strive to get them back instead of rubbing his own ego.

What's embarrassing is the amount of hissy fits over transfers. If better players aren't available at the right price than what we already have then why spend money needlessly? I think it's quite admirable that we've not just wasted money we've strengthened midfield and it's time for mourinho to stand up and be counted and actually coach because believe it or not he's bought 2 new cbs already and as it stands we have one of the strongest squads in the league. It's up to him to get the best out of them. Comments like "It'll be a tough season with the players we have" won't help his cause.

I don't actually see what's wrong with kens comment. He's not called him he's just saying it how it is. I Was at the Tottenham game where he was booed which was ridiculous and I've been many other games where he's been the worst player on the pitch. Always gives us his all but not good enough. If our standard of fans is wanting better for the club then good on them.
