I read earlier that if Van Gaal was unable to get his first or second choice keeper that he will instead opt to use Sam Johnstone - a player he and the OT staff rate very highly.

If there was ever a time for Johnstone to breakthrough, this would be it.

He's impressed me whenever I have seen him. Would love to see him break onto the scene and become great, being English too makes it even more exciting.

2.) 16 Jul 2015 11:36:02
Wouldn't be a bad backup choice but too great a risk as first choice.

3.) 16 Jul 2015 12:10:46
I wouldn't object to the idea, as long as he has experience around him I think he'll be fine.

4.) 16 Jul 2015 13:15:53
The problem is the lack of experience around him.

5.) 16 Jul 2015 18:38:06
If it came to that throw him in at the deep end. When will be the right time to introduce him.

The divide Is becoming clear.

On one hand we have Fellaini, Matic, Young, Lukaku, etc.

Whilst on the other we have Pogba, Martial, Lingard, Rashford, etc.

I'm still backing Mou though, I'd rather be a club that stuck with their manager and move on the trouble makers - no matter how difficult that may be regardless of the style of football than let our top players (he's been here 2 years and he's acting like it's his club) dictate the managerial changes.

The grass isn't always greener on the other side.

Also, let's not forget Mourinho wanted Perisic not Sanchez and would have liked Varane (or similar) .

He even wanted new fullbacks.

Seeing as this team has glaring on field issues costing us games at fullback, centre back on a creative front with Sanchez why is anyone surprised by the outcome?

Morale is low because of the divide but if he got who he wanted I guarantee we'd be talking about how good we've been.

I'm not saying he's perfect, far from it's but if you give him players who believe in him he'll deliver you trophies. If you let Pogba constantly mouth off you're letting the rest of the squad question our approach.

Back him and let him build his way (as he didn't at Inter, Porto and Chelsea pt1) or play Tug of war with player power and watch the undermining of our manager be what's beats us.

You don't go from best in the world for a decade to nothing just like that. We're the problem here not him.

Commitment from the club would be nice but so would commitment from Mourinho - IE getting his arse out of the hotel.

Jose Moonrinho

{Ed001's Note - you do realise Lukaku is not in any camp separate from his best mate Pogba right? So your talk of it being clear is obviously false, you would only have to see the tunnel at the weekend when the likes of Shaw all made a point of a handshake and pat on the back off Mourinho, while Lukaku totally and completely blanked him, even when standing next to him for a time while waiting to go out.}

1.) 05 Oct 2018 13:11:50
Mourinho only ever does three seasons tops with a club, he’s on his third season with us .
We’ve seen what happens at other clubs when he goes into meltdown, it generally just gets worse not better .
So what exactly is the benefit in backing Mourinho when there no future in it.

2.) 05 Oct 2018 14:03:53
Your first group, fellaini, matic and young have one glaring difference to the other group : they are 30 + and in the last couple of years of careers at a big club. They have probably seen turmoil in he dressing rooms at former clubs and can't be arsed to get involved. Content to get playing time as such. The second group although only 5- 10 years younger are from a different world in terms of social media and the ever increasing player power and agent manipulation of situations. I don't think JM or indeed a few other managers can grasp the changes and the necessity to change tactics when dealing with it but having the correct backroom personel AND letting them deal with it could diffuse all the crap that's been reported in the press. The players need a go between sometimes with exception to the footba- after all every EPL game isn't 22 players simply playing for their respective jersey's ;its 22 millionaires with a vast majority of them thinking they have "made" it.

3.) 05 Oct 2018 14:21:15
Morale is low because the players are being asked to play a flawed and outdated system, and when things don’t work the manager throws them under the bus rather than accept some responsibility.

There isn’t really a clear divide either. There are a few players going out of their way to back Jose because their status at the club is depending on him remaining in post. There are a few players openly at odds with Jose because they are concerned that he is being detrimental to their careers and/ or they’re trying to force through a move away from the club. The vast majority of players are trying to stay out of the way. They want the club to get back to winning ways, and are most likely frustrated by the whole situation.

4.) 05 Oct 2018 14:31:27
He wanted a full back, and he got Dalot, who's looked raw, but decent. Shaw has probably been our best player since the start of the season, so I don't see full backs being the problem, more how they're asked to play.

{Ed002's Note - Dalot is one for the future rather than a first pick player now.}

5.) 05 Oct 2018 16:05:40
Ed001, There have been many reports over the past few months of Lukaku distancing himself from Pogba because he doesn't want to impact his relationship with Mourinho - how true it is I do not know.

regardless of where the divide is, I think it's clear we've got issues and differing opinions among the playing staff which is undermining the manager's approach in my opinion.

Bilko, this isn't exactly usual territory for Mourinho though in terms of the state he picked our club up in. It only gets worse at clubs where players think they know better and stop believing, those where they've kept the faith he's been very successful - Inter, Chelsea (first time), Porto to name the obvious 3. - at Madrid he had Ramos and Casillas constantly questioning him, at Chelsea it was Hazard and here it's Pogba.

There is only no point to it if we don't go all in, if we do go all in with him, he gets a house close to the club, we commit to him, etc. then I can actually see it working out well but we need to go all in or not at all.

Cookyman, that's a good observation. I'd argue it's because the younger generation of today's game think they know everything and the older players can be a little wiser on some occasions.

I completely agree with what you're saying to be honest. I think even Sir Alex would have struggled a little with the new age of players. Mourinho NEEDS everyone buying into the system for it to work - that's not happening right now, unfortunately.

Danny, that flawed and outdated system is very similar to the one Real Madrid just won 3 back to back championships with, or the one that got Atletico being spoken about as an elite club. There's nothing wrong with strong counter-attacking football and real defensive principles (Inter vs Barcelona a few years back was fantastic defensively, if we could produce performances like Inter then I'd be okay with it) .

To me there is a clear divide, we could go through the players all day but that's just my opinion at the end of the day really. Those that think Mourinho is harming their career need to realise that they're doing that themselves by failing to show up week after week. Not exactly very professional is it? Another reason why I'd prefer Mourinho to Pogba and co any day of the week.

Noucamp99, He didn't want a child for the future, he wanted someone to come in and take game time from Valencia and Young. Shaw has upped his game and fair play to him, but Valencia has been dire and you can't tell me replacing him with say, Kimmich, for example, would have been a huge upgrade.

if you're saying to me I can have; Pogba, Rashford and Martial or I can keep Mourinho; I'm keeping Mourinho.

We've had the same issues since Sir Alex left, this is a club-wide problem, not a managerial problem. Let's deal with it by keeping the best in the business employed at United - which Mourinho is.

{Ed001's Note - Lukaku and Pogba have not distanced themselves at all. The reports are just trash.}

6.) 05 Oct 2018 16:48:20
So let me get this straight. Under Jose, Madrid never progressed past the CL semis, but his approach was instrumental to them winning three in a row a full two seasons after he left? Should Jose be thanking Davy Moyes for his Europa league success.

I might be a bit off, but I don’t recall Zidane’s Madrid sides putting ten players behind the ball to sit deep with minimal pressing, or resorting to long balls to the big man. Your example of Inter v Barcelona is telling because that is nearly a decade ago. Since then teams have adapted and worked on strategies to counter Jose’s bus parking. It’s telling that as other coaches have adapted and evolved, Jose’s approach has become less and less effective. But yeah, all hail Jose for the Real’s CL treble, which he played no part in achieving.

7.) 05 Oct 2018 14:03:06
You sure they're best mates Ed? Remember them being close when Lukaku signed but they're not as close as they were according to 'reports', distanced him self from Pogba after all the negative publicity/ press.

{Ed001's Note - they are still close according to one of their agencies, who have still been offering them for jobs as a pair. I am sure you can guess the agency.}

8.) 05 Oct 2018 17:34:23
Just seen your response to Moon on falsing reports, my bad Ed. Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate.}

9.) 05 Oct 2018 19:36:12
That's all well and good Moon, but the football under Mourinho is going to be boring rubbish no matter what happens.

This above all else is why he has to go.

There's something in philosophy called the principle of induction which is when we expect the future based on the past. I think you and numerous others are guilty of this, although when it comes to Mourinho there are less than there were six months ago.

10.) 05 Oct 2018 19:57:43
Don’t understand this “if Jose got who he wanted he would be doing well”. He wanted Pogba and can’t get a tune from him, he wanted Matic and he’s slower than my gran, he wanted Bailly and doesn’t play him. He wanted Lukaku who can’t finish his dinner, he has spent a lot of money on players he wanted, and yet we’re still dross. Who’s fault is it then.

11.) 05 Oct 2018 20:38:41
What he means Stand is that we should keep getting Jose players until he has a squad that do exactly what he says, and don’t give him any reason to fall out with them. If he loses the dressing room then get him a new one.

12.) 05 Oct 2018 21:12:32
If lukaku distanced himself from pogba for the sake of his own career, then he's a pretty poor friend. He can still be friends with him without getting involved in any issues he has. If mourinho gave that impression to any of the players then that's dreadful management, the players need to get on, if it's frowned upon to associate yourself with pogba because mourinhos having a spat with him then no wonder he wants out, that must be a terrible environment to go into every day school yard stuff.

13.) 06 Oct 2018 00:24:24
Jose Mourinho and Moon. Mourinho wanted cb's and he bought bailly and Lindleof. Bailly is good but has fallen out with the manager. Lindlehof is crap.
He wanted a defensive midfielder, so he bought matic and i said at the time, too slow and ponderous and getting on. He wanted a playmaker, so he bought Pogba and Mkhitaryan and has fallen out with both of them.
Are you telling us that all these players are wrong? Sanchez is a world class player, has looked like a 3rd division player.
Get rid of this person, let Carrick do the job, even if he's inexperienced, then appoint manager who believes in our club.
Gary Neville has a point in that the club hierarchy have no manners and are a bunch of gun slinging yanks, but unfortunately, they will be wrong in allowing Mourinho to carry on.

14.) 06 Oct 2018 14:30:24
Liverpool fan here, lads you lot need to back your manager if a was Jose, pogba would be playing with the ressies till Jan (and sold for as much as u can get for him) Then Jose would need to tell anyone else u buy into what am doing here or u will be along side pogba.
Things might change if he keeps pogba away from all first team football related stuff that been the dressing room aswell.
The rest of the players need to grow the fxxk up and do what the getting paid huge sums of money to do and that's show up and play football the way they are told to do, weather they like the tactics or not.
One thing about Jose is he is proving in winning trophies he might not play exciting football but he knows how to win.
As a Liverpool fan the one thing I don't want come may when we win the league is you lot trying to take it away from us by saying stuff like, u only had to beat one team, and it was the easiest season to win the league, abit like Leicester. A would prefer every team be at there best because reguardless we will still win the league even with every other team playing there best football.
Peace lads over and out.



30 Sep 2018 21:32:10
If we don't back Mourinho and instead take sides with Pogba then we'll consistently be Pogba's and thus Raiolas play thing.

We need to move forward properly, Pogba needs to go because he's acting like a combined version of Balotelli and Joey Barton. I'd bite your hand off for £50 Million in January.

Whether Mourinho goes now or in the summer it can't be as a consequence of this rubbish.

Personally I think Pogba is slowly turning The dressing room against Mourinho hence why Lukaku is 'distancing' himself from pogba. As he gets on well with Mourinho.

If Mourinho goes based on performance then so be it and that's different argument but if he goes because of pogba then we know who the most influential Man at the club is.

We've already got a spineless board and hierarchy. Imagine how easily pogba and mino will manipulate them into getting whatever he wants at Pogba FC

Oh and my 2 cents on Mou - I still think he's the right man for the job, things are tough right now but he'll get it sorted and quite frankly the only manager I trust more left the game in 2013.

1.) 30 Sep 2018 21:41:40
Jose' failure is due to far more than his issues with Pogba.

{Ed025's Note - i think so too daniel..

2.) 30 Sep 2018 21:53:53
Moonrinho I agree with you about pogba but you're deluded mate if you think. he can turn this round he is done we need to get rid of him asap this season isn't done yet but if we wait any longer it will be too late.
We need a manager with a modern football philosophy because we've got a good enough squad to be very good.

3.) 30 Sep 2018 22:18:55
Moorinho, are you having a laugh. Do you honestly think Mourinho is the right man? Explain to us if you can, why do you think he's capable of dping that?
Rashford- gone backwards
Martial - gone backwards
Bailly - gone backwards
Hererra- gone backwards
Jones rojo lindlehof - were crap and gone even further backwards
Mkhitaryan- bought and sold in 8 months
Pigba - brilliant for France, can't play at United!
Matic - bought and i said at the time, he'll be a liability, gone backwards
Chong, gomez, Tunazebe, not trusted to break into the team.
Mctominay, an average midfielder with very limited skill, continuously gets picked and then played into central defence.
Sanchez - regressing at Arsenal, bought and given a record breaking contract and achieved nothing to date.
The only players playing well are Fellaini, Shaw and Lingard (though lingard has been terrible this season) .
So have all these players suddenly become bad players? I don't think so. Its the manager, the training, the tactics, the poor man management, the poor transfer policy that have turned us into a rubbish team and Mourinho is solely to blame.

4.) 30 Sep 2018 22:25:16
The Pogba “issue” is just one of a string of problems Mourinho has. I’ll give it until December.

5.) 30 Sep 2018 23:04:56
I think Jose will be here until we are out of the CL.

6.) 01 Oct 2018 09:00:22
Moon mate, I agree that giving in to player power is a dangerous path to go down. However, I would say the club are already halfway down that path. How many times have the club given players new contracts after a public stand off? Keane, Rooney ect.

As for Jose, I think he is a spent force at the very pinnacle of the game. He has always looked better at clubs just below the very top bracket. He was great at Porto, at Chelsea first time round, at Inter. However, he struggled at Madrid bar one great season. At Chelsea second time around once they were established as a top side and with us.

His style of management and football suits a team that doesn't see itself as a true top side. They can buy into the cynical underdog mentality which established top sides struggle to accept.

Mourinho has always been a reactive coach rather than a proactive one. What can we do to limit the opposition rather than what can we do to hurt them.

I still think Mourinho is excellent at what he does. But I don't know which top teams would seriously consider him for their next manager.
Bayern certainly wouldn't, Juventus wouldn't, Barcelona and Real Madrid wouldn't. Man City wouldn't, I doubt even Chelsea would go back for a third bite of the apple. Maybe PSG. But then many wouldn't consider them truly in the top bracket yet after struggling to make waves in the UCL.

Jose will only get jobs at clubs that next bracket down now. Which maybe highlights that his star is waning.

Truly top sides expect more than just winning, they expect to do so with a certain sense of style, this is something Jose just cannot do.

I think his future is now in international management. Where cynical teams often prevail over flamboyant teams.

Jose was a great manager, yet he is now on the decline. Football has moved on, and he has stood still. He truly is now the underdog he had proclaimed himself to be all throughout his career.



07 Sep 2018 10:23:36
I said when we were looking to sign him back that he's not too dissimilar to Balotelli in the way he handles himself.

Differences in action are there but the consequences remain the same - a complete distraction.

As good as he is I really hope we manage to ship him out before the start of next season.

Sir Alex has been right on a lot of things post-retirement. I wonder whether getting him involved in more of the footballing matters would improve things.

Jose Moonrinho

1.) 07 Sep 2018 10:44:57
The club need to modernise, move forward. SAF, as a great leader, operated in a particular way that served him well but it was very much old school, now modern footballers are moving on from the mentality that worked in distant years gone by. For those who think SAF got everything right there is the racehorse and then there was the Moyes debacle.

SAF has been very ill and I think deserves a fitting happy retirement. We need to look forward not back, the challenge of City is now there, they planned for years ahead and now we have to. There is a similarity to the post Busby years, a hankering to return to what we had before, to listen to Busby’s wisdom and follow it. It took so many years for the club to move forward after Busby so we need to ensure that doesn’t happen now. SAF is part of our past, rightly venerated for what he did but now the planning needs to be driven from the top. Planning and work on the football side should be driven by the aims of the owners, let’s see what that is.

2.) 07 Sep 2018 10:47:28
I think SAF has earned his retirement, he has a had a serious illness and it’s time for him to put his feet up and enjoy his family. Even if he was fighting fit, this would echo the Busby shadow that lingered when he moved on, it’s best to let the new guy do things his own way.

Pogba was always a risk and so it has turned out. His agent is canny and making millions for himself and his player.

My biggest issue is that in our heyday Pogba wouldn’t have got away with his behaviour. Keane, Ince, Bruce, Pallister, Hughes, Cantona, the class of ‘92 to name just some, would have ripped his head off. Unfortunately we don’t seem to have big characters who can ‘run’ the dressing room. We need talent but we also need character. How have we ended up with a Captain who doesn’t speak very good English? Klopp has it right - improve your English or you’re out.

3.) 07 sep 2018 11:14:17
yep, saf was right to force young players to sign for his son’s agency. that was definitely the right way to decide which young players got game time.

club tries to sell player in summer. nobody willing to pay the club’s price. player, who was offered for sale, suggests that his future may not be with club that tried to sell him. fans - omg worst oerson ever, no respect, rabble rabble rabble


4.) 08 Sep 2018 11:25:21
Danny, taking an opinion from the internet regarding the Pogba thing isn't exactly a smart thing to do.

Remind me to ignore most of the things you post as they appear to be hearsay.

Unfortunately I'd need more than a few words to prove that's it was the reason he left.

Either way, right now I'd rather have Balotelli.

5.) 08 Sep 2018 12:49:28
The info about Pogba being frozen out because he didn’t sign for Fergie’s son comes from Ed001.

The info about Pogba being offered to clubs this summer comes from Ed002.

Two of the most well informed people on this site, but I guess you know best Moonie.

6.) 08 Sep 2018 21:41:19
Ed002 is quite clearly well informed because a lot of what he says Ian backed up when it happens.

I know all about SAFs flaws but I have no reason to believe 1 persons belief on it without finding evidence elsewhere; to which their is minimal.

Either way I don’t follow the sport as much as I used too and I’m my eyes Pogba is a bigger issue than the like of Balotelli, Payet and Griezmann.



01 Nov 2016 16:34:59
I'm not one for Facebook or any kind of social media to be honest but I saw the Manchester United facebook page through a friend of mine earlier today and he was scrolling through the posts.

The club literally act like a small club, tagging Ronaldo or any other half decent ex player in most posts, etc.

IE that had one about Ronaldo.

I then got showed the Manchester City page and they seem to be far more sure of their own pulling power, interviews with people like Sane, Silva, etc.

Anyway, my point is simply a question, do Manchester United act like a 'small' club on social media usually?

It's the first I saw of it and although I don't really care an awful lot it certainly got me thinking.

Jose Moonrinho

1.) 01 Nov 2016 16:56:52
You have been looking at the wrong pages moon!

have you ever got anything to say that carries any substance?

from what i have seen the answer is no!

2.) 01 Nov 2016 17:09:22
There is bitching and then there is what you have posted, small club like seriously, ronaldo was tagged as it was supposedly 1st nov when he scored his first goal for us, i apologize to you if it hurt you that utd fans consider him a legend and utd facebook celebrated much like other so called half decent ex players who seem to be tagged mostly for their birthdays or to mark something, which city can't really do i mean there is not much past to celebrate when your legends include likes of niall quinn and paul dickov.

Also just to be sure i went on the utd page and only thing other than usual utd related stuff i found was ronaldo stuff (1 post), happy birthdays to mark hughes and dennis irwin and van der saar and bit of advertising for addidas and others, so where is this so called small stuff or is it your expectation than a social media page by man utd should not wish explayers happy birthday or mark any occasions that jose moonrinho might not like.

3.) 01 Nov 2016 17:13:01
Moon your posts are getting more odd every time you post.

Acting like a small club on social media? How does a club act on social media to project themselves as a big club?

What scale does one use?

4.) 01 Nov 2016 18:01:25
Van Gaal's social media is the best. He has all the info on the best topics and times to post, the best font, etc. He spends 90 minutes meticulously planning every aspect of his posts, but never actually ends up posting anything.

Moon are you really serious?

6.) 01 Nov 2016 19:18:20
Got to assume this one is a wind up, and not the first one recently, if not I'm confused and embarrassed for you.

7.) 01 Nov 2016 19:25:09
Here comes the 'Moon' again!

8.) 01 Nov 2016 19:28:09
Moon - I had to swallow the fact Welbeck was sold, I think it's time you did the same with LVG being axed mate.

9.) 01 Nov 2016 23:14:43
Beast - where on earth do you get that dig from? How did another dig at Moon over LVG become relevant? Reading through these responses it is like everyone is out to chase Moon away, is this seriously what this page has come to?

10.) 02 Nov 2016 00:11:44
DodgyBanter - Because ever since LVG was sacked (Who Moon backed until the very very end), his posts have become more and more bizarre for him. He posted a very interesting article a while ago on LVG's tactics, which although I disagreed with, it still was very comprehensive and I often enjoyed reading Moon's views. However of late he seems to be saying bizarre things about Rashford, Facebook and other stuff which makes me think he is not happy about Man Utd and maybe there is something behind it. That is where my point came from.

I was a bit bitter after we sold Welbeck, and this reminds me of that. Not that I feel i should justify myself to PC police. I'm not chasing Moon away (the opposite in fact), I just wondered if that disappointed about LVG being sacked is tainting his posts and maybe damaging the reputation he garnered. As you can tell above, people are confused about what he has been saying lately. I'm trying to help because I am often labeled as one thing or another, but there is often more to it.

I'm not bothered either way, but "my dig" was more of a plea not a snipe. I like "bizzare" posts, they get the conversation going and if not totally messed up can often lead to alternative thinking.

11.) 02 Nov 2016 02:31:22
That wasn't only aimed at you Beast, read evenzidan's response and I think my point is understood:

"have you ever got anything to say that carries any substance? "

Well yes evenzidane, he's long been a highly respected poster on this site who has often written detailed and interesting posts/ articles.

But let's score some more points over LVG.

Ignore me, must be my time of the month, but I agree with your response beast - I would like to see more input from posters like Moon - not less.

12.) 02 Nov 2016 05:15:26

Apparently you haven't been reading Moon's post (especially of late) .

13.) 02 Nov 2016 08:56:04

i have been reading Moons posts for a while and until june (ish) time this year they have had some form of subject matter whether i agree or not is irrelevant.

Hoewever, the last 6 months of sporadic no nonsensical posts seem to have the rest on here in agreement that they are strange and a lot of the time either snipey (with no argument to back up) or just pointless.

14.) 02 Nov 2016 08:58:10
* forgot to add - i haven't mentioned LVG in any way including digs at Moon.

15.) 02 Nov 2016 10:49:00
Ahh, I see, my apologies. I didn't realise it was Moon hunting season on the site. But if everyoje agrees that he is irrelevant then I guess I should jump on the band wagon then.


16.) 02 Nov 2016 11:46:30
there is no 'moon hunting' going on.

If i put something on here that people generally think is out of order/ strange/ based on incorrect facts or whatever the case maybe then i would have no issue if 4,5 or 10 people told me so. i would expect it!

just like you have pointed out that you think my reply to Moon may be off the mark. If there were 10 people on here agreeing with you i wouldn't consider that a 'hunting'.

And you need read the post (s) correctly - nobody has said that Moon or his posts were or are irrelevant.



26 Oct 2016 13:12:03
We've all seen a lot lately how Mourinho seems to be a little stressed to say the least.

Many have asked if he's past it, outdated, etc. I also remember the same questions being asked about Sir Alex Ferguson.

My honest opinion is that he isn't past it but his past few managerial roles (Real Madrid and Chelsea) have been an absolute disaster in how he left - in both circumstances players forced him out.

I think Jose needs a break from Football for a few years.

Don't get me wrong, this isn't about Manchester United and his role here it's about him as a manager and it's clear that he's struggling with how his career has gone recently.

I have full faith in him as a manager but as a person he certainly needs a break of some kind.

Jose Moonrinho

Didn't he have a break before this job?

It's great seeing Maureen losing the plot.

Mighty Red, losing the plot is when a manager starts harping on about FACTS.

People do realise Rooney is only on £150K basic don't they? When he signed his new deal he got insane on target bonuses but I don't see why a similar thing couldn't be worked out at Everton.

I'm sure the likes of Lukaku are on £100K+.

The more I come on here the more I see a lot of posters talk absolutely rubbish.

He's absolutely brilliant.

I wouldn't object to the idea, as long as he has experience around him I think he'll be fine.

He's better than coleman, one of the few fullbacks who is incredible defensively (has the aerial presence of a central defender) and is very Brazilian in his adventures up field

I agree with you but you never answered my question as to whether zidanes ego is so small he doesn’t credit himself fot setting records unlikely to be matched.

Shan, you honestly think Zidane has such low confidence in himself?

Funny that, If you surf the archives in the days before sin ups you’d have seen me call for Pirlo at United who many called over the hill. Now he’s the GOAT is he?

Mata in his prime at Chelsea was arguably the best 10 in Europe. Sanchez has carried udinese and Arsenal. Carrick carrick doesn’t need an overview.

To say Mata or Sanchez aren’t on Pirlos level is laughable.

Either way pogba has made me fall out of love with United and football. FOR ME. Signing pog was a bigger mistake than appointing Moyes and you’ll all soon see why in years to come.

Mata? Sanchez? Carrick? There are 3 examples of players in in their prime was on the same level if not a higher level than Pirlo, Bonucci and co.

Personally I think Pogba is an excuse machine and the sooner he’s moved on the better. Nothing will ever be his fault.

Besides what is he? 25? 26? He should be enjoying the best football of his career yet it’s always someone else holding him back.

First it was playing too deep, then it was mata taking up his position, then Sanchez, then Mou and now he doesn’t have stars to learn from? Give me a break.

You’re talking like fans play the game.

If the 75,000 paying fans want to sing Ronaldo all night then that’s fine by me.

The players are professionals they’re not going to be star struck by an over the hill legend.

Interesting I didn’t hear any calls for getting behind the team when it wasn’t all kicking off the last month or so.
