How would Mitrovic be as a backup striker to Lukaku? Also I think if Mata ever leaves we should get Shaqiri.

Kenyanredevil

1.) 22 Jun 2018 20:42:55
No and no. Both bang average.


2.) 22 Jun 2018 20:45:50
No and No, One is a bigger donkey than the next.


3.) 22 Jun 2018 20:47:15
Both mitrovic and shaqiri have been good, really good game .
I actually thought the same about mitrovic after the first half.


4.) 22 Jun 2018 21:03:21
Mitrovic on that performance would be a perfect player for Jose to bring of the bench .
I though shaqiri was excellent there.


5.) 22 Jun 2018 21:10:26
Mitrovic is an absolute nightmare as a person, would fall out with Jose in less than a minute. Shaqiri only puts in an effort when he wants a transfer, wants people to forget how average he has been for Stoke so he can blow it at another big club.


6.) 22 Jun 2018 21:55:04
I think this proves the point from the other day that watching a player in the World Cup should not be how a player is chosen to sign. We all know that these 2 players aren’t good enough for united but both of them looked really good tonight, Mit a real handful especially in the first half. Definitely a no for signing both though.


7.) 22 Jun 2018 22:04:13
It also shows a bit of football snobbery imo .
Same way so many fans are against fellaini even tho the manager likes him .


8.) 22 Jun 2018 22:44:24
No no no no NNNNOOOOOO. Please stop it. Karel Poborsky 😆😆.


9.) 22 Jun 2018 23:01:35
It’s hardly snobbery to suggest that two players who have struggled in the EPL with other sides shouldn’t be targets for a team looking to challenge for the title.


10.) 22 Jun 2018 23:16:05
Danny
Neither are bad players both have been highly rated from a very young age .
I would be very surprised if United signed them but they can both play .
I could see mitrovic having the attributes that Jose likes especially as a second option of the bench .
Shaqiri is a good player better than lingard imo . And I have been one if the few to stick up for lingard.


11.) 22 Jun 2018 23:35:47
Shaqiri is one of the laziest player in the league. He has plenty of talent, but has proven time and time again that he simply isn’t capable of putting in the work necessary to make it as a top player. His career has been a series of missed opportunities, with him being shifted to progressively worse sides. At Stoke, where he was given top billing and should have shone, he showed up for one in every ten games. He’s putting in the effort during the WC because he needs a move, and will revert to type as soon as some club falls for it.

As for him being an option off the bench. That’s what Bayern tried, and he stropped, and completely stopped trying until they gave up and sold him. The lad expects to be first choice but doesn’t want to put in any effort to deserve it.


12.) 22 Jun 2018 23:55:48
Danny
Who mentioned shaqiri as an option of the bench? It was mitrovic who does look a Jose type and comes with a very big rep in his younger years .
Shaqiri is a talented lad still only 26 imo a better player than lingard.
So I think it's snobbery .


13.) 23 Jun 2018 00:46:08
Is this a serious chat?, a player who has been dreadful at Stoke all year even when they were going down couldn’t be bothered to work back and help the team yeh mourinho would love him and a player who Newcastle loaned out to a championship team because he wasn’t good enough for them wow is that what we have become 😩.


14.) 23 Jun 2018 01:08:01
Jred he can hardly get in the Newcastle team. A good championship player more like.


15.) 23 Jun 2018 06:47:01
Shaqiri last 100 attempts on goal for Newcastle.
74 off target
26 on target
3 goals
He waa ok last night i don't think its football snobbery to say he isn't good enough for united. He wasn't good enough for bayern inter or stoke so i think its a fair call to say not good enough for united.
But its definitely football bolloxology to say he is better than jessie when he falls behind jessie in nearly every single stat on record.
But its a game of opinions. Signing players like mit and shaqiri or the like of fellaini blind darmian morgan depay that has seen us make boo title challenge for 5 years. Much more improvement this seazon when those lads hardly had a kick in the league.
Im still counting the days to 30th of june when fellaini contract expires and i dread the possible announcement of a new contract for him. We need to get shut of the average joes in the squad not sign 2 more players that have failed miserably in the epl.

{Ed001's Note - you have not even mentioned the fact that it was his best game for years because of the extra motivation of facing Serbia. Same as Xhaka. It was not a coincidence that the two of them performed better in that match than they have all season.}


16.) 23 Jun 2018 07:24:48
Yes ed i agree. But intl football is not the place to judge players imo.

{Ed001's Note - totally agree, totally different pace and the style of the game is different. Players are given more time and space on the ball than they get in club football and individuals can make more of a difference as teams are not as tuned into each other as they get playing together every week in club football. That is why any international team that pulls together as a team tends to ridiculously outperform the quality of the players.}


17.) 23 Jun 2018 07:52:10
Bang on 001.
Lots of dodgy signings made over the years by lots of clubs based on a players wc performane.
Of course there will be exceptions to the rule but scouting players is not as easy as it seems and due diligence is vital.

{Ed001's Note - exactly mate. There is far too much money involved to just take a chance. The thing that gave Liverpool and Man Utd sustained success was their recruitment. Both clubs used to do a massive amount of due diligence. Geoff Twentyman, for instance, would get to know a player's family before he would decide whether to recommend buying them for Liverpool. If he didn't like their background, he would not recommend them.}


18.) 23 Jun 2018 07:59:18
Jred going WC crazy.

It's amazing how the world cup can do that to people. Have a good tournament and soon enough you're good enough for united. Shaqiri is another player on the long list of players better than lingard yet doesn't come anywhere near his consistency levels or reputation for actually being able to perform at a big club. Shaqiri is a joke.

Mitrovic? Could barely get into a championship team.

Last night was like a derby match due to the fact of the long long history Albania have with Serbia. Swiss players were incredibly fired up.


19.) 23 Jun 2018 08:57:30
A player who struggled at Stoke and got loaned to the old 2nd division is not united quality. Who cares what his reputation was 5 years ago as a youngster. What's his reputation now?

And Shaqiri is the epitome of talent who threw it away from laziness and poor attitude. He couldn't hack it at Bayern so why should we sign him as their the level we're supposedly aiming for.

If we're going to sign players off the back of a hood game at the world cup then there's plenty of others to look at who probably would be a better fit.


 

 

18 Jun 2018 13:56:09
Seems to have all gone quiet for us after Dalot and Fred signings. even saw random article on MEN saying we'll only sign one more, likely to be a CB and that's it.

Kenyanredevil

1.) 18 Jun 2018 14:18:20
Wouldn't surprise me but I think we might see 2 or 3 more, the MEN have about as much of a clue as you do so wouldn't really trust what they are saying.

I don't think we need too many, we need to focus on getting the players we have playing well IMO.


2.) 18 Jun 2018 14:53:59
think the reason its gone silent is the world cup being on.

every club is in the same boat.

2 in the bag so far still plenty of time left in the window.


3.) 18 Jun 2018 16:12:01
Do any of the ed's know if Tuanzebe has returned to Manchester United after his loan stint with Villa and is he likely to go back out on loan somewhere next season?

I really think he will be one the casualties in Mourinho's tendency to keep loaning young players out and it will be another Salah, Pogba, De Bruyne, Lukaku style mistake. I think this lad has so much raw talent.

{Ed001's Note - he has returned but I have no idea what the plan is for him next season. Usually, going by what most clubs are doing who have players away at the World Cup, they are holding off on making a decision on youngsters as they need them in pre-season games.}


4.) 18 Jun 2018 16:19:04
Thanks ed that makes sense :-)

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate. It does always make things a bit difficult but it is a very good chance for players in the youth team to force their way into the first team reckoning.}


5.) 18 Jun 2018 16:37:54
Dont forget we have 2-3 players infront of Tuanzebe that we should probably move on to make space for him but we will probably struggle to move on due to the high wages their on.


 

 

12 Jun 2018 10:38:47
Anyone seen this Gelson Martins fellow? Has apparently terminated his contract with Lisbon, is only 20 years old and is pretty good on either wing.

Kenyanredevil

1.) 12 Jun 2018 11:22:30
He’s 23, and the situation with a Sporting is really complicated. Liverpool were interested in him last year, doesn’t strike me as a Jose player in the slightest.


2.) 12 Jun 2018 12:12:50
Surely can't be as simple as the tabloids are saying -basically they were attacked at the training ground by unhappy fans got scared and don't feel safe there now . so martens/ cavalho +2 others just pack their bags and leave?

Cant see how they can just walk out for no fee, must be very legally complicated.

Like the time my mate got sacked from his job on the dodgems. eventually won his case for Funfair dimissal though. I said like the time my mate.


3.) 12 Jun 2018 13:16:57
Oh dear 😂😂.


4.) 12 Jun 2018 15:36:13
My God. Sporting are in a whole lot of trouble. I bet most end up at Everton😆😆.


5.) 12 Jun 2018 16:41:18
Apparently a few of them trying to leave after they were attacked by masked fans at training.


6.) 12 Jun 2018 21:14:57
The President of Sporting attacked the players verbally earlier this season for their lack of effort. The players then lost against some mid and lower placed teams and the fans physically attacked the players and sent threatening messages to their families. The players decided enough was enough and refused to play. The president then told 19 of the first team players that they will not be picked for the team. The players handed in transfer requests and refused to play after the attack. Gelson is an excellent player.


7.) 12 Jun 2018 21:52:35
No sorry . I bet most turn up at Little Portugal " WOLVERHAMPTON "😆😆.


8.) 13 Jun 2018 08:19:31
Gelson Martins will walk into the current United team.


 

 

06 Jun 2018 14:54:38
Well that's Dalot done then.

Kenyanredevil

1.) 06 Jun 2018 15:17:03
I doubt it mate, think there will still be a few more signings yet ;)


2.) 06 Jun 2018 15:54:08
lol GDS, I see what you did there. Very good!


 

 

02 Jun 2018 06:56:48
Griezmann is a big fan of Lingard. even when he scores for France he holds up a big "L" on his head. :D.

1.) 02 Jun 2018 15:57:47
One L of a player

Ba-doom.

Actually it's Lionel Messi :p.

Thanks a lot Ed, at least we have an idea of transfer targets. It's a bit disappointing though that we aren't focusing so much on RW/ RM/ RB.

I like to think it was Wenger's policy to sign guys with names you can't spell. Emery looks like he's adapting well with this Papastathopoulos interest. (How do you fit that on a shirt)

Read my post again mate, I have gotten over Fabinho that is not an issue. I have also spoken about Matic and Lukaku as good signings.

I am talking about our shortfalls, which clearly exist.

Don't think it's so much about Them beating us to him, it's just that I felt he could have addressed 2 of our problem positions i.e DM and RB; also for the fact that we have been largely quiet in the last few transfer windows except the one where we got Matic and Lukaku - that was good business.

I know many will say we have spent big, but a large portion of funds every window have been splashed on one or two major names - take Pogba for instance, Lukaku, Di Maria, etc.

Previously we failed to fill in the holes. By the time SAF retired we started with Anderson and Cleverly in Midfield; Moyes messed up completely with the defence, how did he let go of Vidic, Evra, Rio (retired) all in one instance.

LVG messed with the attack, he sold ALL of RVP, Welbeck, Chicharito in one window and replaced only with Martial. Somewhere between the 2 managers we let go of Anderson, Cleverly, Gibson, Fletcher, O'Shea etc. LVG's signings never worked for us, only Blind and Rojo still survive.

Our team got seriously messed with under those 2 managers, I personally think we need to 100% back Jose in the transfer window and he'll get us the right signings. Ed needs to sit up and start working.
