A few 'would you rather' posts popping up, mostly to do with playing well but losing or playing badly but winning.

How can you play badly and win trophies? it just doesn’t happen. I used to love the contrasting styles of Italy and Brazil in World Cups.

Why doesn’t anyone give any credit to playing defensively and solidly anymore? It’s not easy to organise teams and there is definitely an art form to playing that way, granted it might not be as exciting to watch. Mayweather will go down as one of the greatest boxers of all time but he was really boring to watch, he just didn’t get hit.

If everyone adopted the same style playing football then ultimately that would become boring too, I love all the styles and appreciate them for what we are. Long ball tactics, rough and tumble, tikka takka, ultimate football, park the bus, counter attack etc.

I guess as a united fan, do miss the style we used to play, but it was never like the current city side for example, one we seem to want to emulate now. we had a style of our own and that’s the beauty of football .

Great post mate.

2.) 08 Mar 2018 14:31:04
Great post last man.

3.) 08 Mar 2018 14:44:05
Well said LSMA.
At the end Of the day, people remember winners and not too much of those who play well and beautiful. Hence yeah to a certain extent I’d rather we win and be boring than be like scousers playing beautiful and not win anything for years. Of course if we can play beautiful and yet win that’ll be ultimate. 😉.

4.) 08 Mar 2018 15:44:10
Imagine if you won and played well tho.

5.) 08 Mar 2018 23:48:54
We're not that great defensively. 3 holding midfielders and an unbelievable goalkeeper have papered over the cracks. Also the frustration is that we have top notch attacking players but the lack of a constructive approach means we have reverted to a damage limitation exercise while hoping for individual brilliance to bail us out. Meanwhile spurs and liverpool are getting similar results but play a much better brand of football. My hope is that the glaring issues with our defence and CM are addressed this summer and Mourinho adopts a better approach, but I'm not sure how realistic that is.

6.) 09 Mar 2018 02:12:23
Always imagining Jred.
Bur ball is round so also depends on who we playing. I am quite sure most logical supporters would want win before beautiful football. That said, I’d not want to become a scousers supporter having not won anything for so long than be a ManUtd supporter having won silverware last season. So what if it is Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck trophy? I’d rather that than an empty season shelf.
But yes if we win and also beautiful, like I said it would be the ultimate.

Watched the Swansea game live but only just got the chance to watch match of the day. what can I say, the moment it gets back into the studio 3 cringeworthy awful pundits say Nothing positive whatsoever about uniteds start to the season.
Instead choose to pick faults and spend the entire time doing so too .
Nothing remotely positive to say at all?!


1.) 21 Aug 2017 10:49:56
That did make me laugh, Jenas just picked fault with the whole performance 😂.

2.) 21 Aug 2017 11:12:39
Thought they had a good point about not using width of the pitch tho.

3.) 21 Aug 2017 13:16:02

They did but possibly didn't need to be the first point they made, you would have thought we lost!



23 Jul 2017 22:54:22
Just watched the first goal against Real Madrid!
Martial! Unbelievable skill, couldn't believe what I was watching . Amazing dribbling and skill, just too good .


1.) 23 Jul 2017 23:00:41
We all know what he can do he just needs to do it a lot more perhaps last seasons personal issues affected him but looking at the tour videos/ pictures he looks much happier so hopefully he'll kick on next season.

But as you said his assist was class.

2.) 23 Jul 2017 23:02:09
Hopefully will give him some confidence, which I'm sure in Jose's mind is what he's lacking.
He hasn't changed his style, it just came off this time. It's easy to see the potential of this kid. Really hoping this is the time he steps up and meets that potential. more to come please.



17 Mar 2017 17:11:21
Roy Keane has gone too far .
Always be a respected player and leader for the team I love but ultimately what he has been saying of late is totally unnecessary. if you truly have uniteds interests at heart you should know that going in that hard on a manager that's only had half a season and won a trophy already is ridiculous. Clearly he just doesn't like Jose . Totally unprofessional and a bit of a **** move .


1.) 17 Mar 2017 17:54:21
I found his comments funny actually, a man who for lack of better words got kicked out of the club for moaning about his team mates in a tv interview, the man who walked out/ kicked out of his country's world cup campaign because he again pitched a fit to the media because he did not get training the way he wanted it for the team. Now the same guy moans about other guy moaning about fixture list. No irony there i suppose.

2.) 17 Mar 2017 19:11:01
Roy Keane is one of the best if not the best captain/ midfielder I have ever seen.

He is also a massive arse hole.

{Ed025's Note - spot on deano mate..

3.) 17 Mar 2017 19:39:17
Cracking player and a legend, however I find him quite bitter these days, a guy that not grown with the times and still stuck in the olden days, the only United player I didn't enjoy reading his autobiography.

4.) 17 Mar 2017 20:25:28
You're classed as a scallywag now if you speak the truth. i love when he is on tv cause you know your going to get an honest assessment, not like a lot of other pundits who can't be seen to be honest on tv, political correctness bull.

5.) 17 Mar 2017 21:39:26
Jose must understand that this time of year the fixture list gets a bit bigger if your left in a few cup competitions. after all he was at a few big clubs in Europe.
So stop moaning about it and get on with it, is he trying to deflect from the fact we are in 6th, now I don't want Jose out or anything like that hope he stays for 5 years and wins trophies. Now special one cop on and stop moaning.

6.) 17 Mar 2017 22:30:35
He isn't honest leahy he is just a miserable sod for the sake of it.
I think we confuse being a good footballer with being a good person and I personally think the two are exclusive Keane could start an argument in an empty room the blokes soap box must be made out of stone for the amount of use it gets.

7.) 17 Mar 2017 23:43:58
Dean he is an honest man, and if he is working in football whether player or pundit he gives 100%, straight out no waffling no social media waffle or anything like that, just good honest work, he may ruffle a few feathers along the way, I don't know if you are old enough to remember him playing for United but if you do you will know he was a born winner.

Now outside of football you couldn't meet a nicer bloke, very funny dry humour, I've met him a few times, a sound bloke if you approach him properly,
He gives a lot to charity I know of one children's hospital in ireland he looks after and he doesn't go around talking about it or looking for praise either, and he also works with guide dogs for the blind.

If I had my way there would be a statue of him in cork airport that day you are now entering Roy Keane country.

8.) 18 Mar 2017 04:39:15
Dean, I sort of agree with you but having read his books I started to understand him a little more. He is both a complex and simple individual, I'm not sure he was every comfortable being famous and yet he was the captain of the the biggest team in the country for many years. I'm not sure why he feels the need to be so "refreshingly honest" all the time.

9.) 18 Mar 2017 07:33:08
I've never met him so I can only go with what I see of him on television and that is the fact he rarely has a good word for anyone .
I have read the Keane book but years ago I may re read it.

10.) 18 Mar 2017 07:59:38
God, I thought he was just being honest.

I find myself agreeing with most of what he says.

His character aside. I think he is a cracking pundit because he says it how he sees it.

11.) 18 Mar 2017 07:48:46
Great Captain, club legend but a nutcase.

It's a mark of how elite the club is seen my ex players.

Look at the ex Utd pundits - digging out the team, constructive criticism in some cases but always judged against their own high standards.

Look at the ex Liverpool pundits (exc Jamie Carragher) seem to blindly defend the team and make excuses.

I like Keano, Scholes, Nevilles reminding everyone about what it means to be at Man Utd.

Also Fergie would be going nuts about the current fixtures.



09 Mar 2017 22:20:12
Balance . Views, opinions, results and current situation.
Personally I think where we are at is about right .
We've won a cup final, looks like we will secure the next round of europa with a real chance of winning.
The fa cup is probably going to go to Chelsea but you never know and 4th position in the league is also a 50/ 50 at least.
Zlatan . really cannot understand any negative feeling towards him. The goal tally will speak for itself and the contribution of a striker should almost (imo) be based soley on goals because that's what he's there for .
We are far from perfect and have players that aren't quite united standard and a few that are underperforming but overall we are moving in the right direction so I'm fairly calm and reasonably satasfied with what we have achieved, what we will achieve and what is expected from this team this season.


1.) 10 Mar 2017 06:52:53
Good post that mate.



30 Jul 2016 17:28:54
Yes this is another pp post .
Money aside a few posters and united fans in general are concerned he doesn't want to come and prefers Madrid.
Well. Most players do see Madrid as the pinnacle in club football so I can't really blame them, especially when they are interested in buying them .
Put it another way, how many players would sign for us OVER Madrid?
Would ronaldo for example have come to us if Madrid wanted him back then?
My point is I'm not offended if pp would have preferred a move to Madrid over us. Madrid and United are the biggest club teams in the world, but Madrid is prob a bit more appealing due to the weather .
Let's not judge him too harshly for that.


1.) 30 Jul 2016 18:55:33
It depends how you word the argument. If the player would want to play for United, but would prefer Madrid over United given the option, then I can understand that. The trouble with Pogba is, if the info is correct, he doesn't want to play for United full stop. His agent is trying to persuade him to make the move. This is Di Maria all over again.

Of course, this is all hypothetical, and based on reports not facts. I, like other, want to see players in a United shirt because they want to be, not because we can throw cash at him and his agent. But hey, I am old compared to many posters on here and I still want to see United full of players who will run through walls for the team. Not the mercenaries who will play wherever the cash is. But that's just me.

2.) 30 Jul 2016 20:50:23
Betty on that point how do you feel about ddg would you bomb him out because he wanted to go to RM?

3.) 30 Jul 2016 20:59:34

Generally when they come because of money and not wanting to be here, they don't try as hard as someone who really wants to be here and more like a pitstop to another place. I also hope the rumour is not true but it does make the whole thing make sense.

Team spirit for me .
We seem to have a great togetherness and belief .
Only city and spurs have that along with ourselves .
May seem like a stupid point but it does make a huge difference.

Bale . He is devastating at times and arguably in the top 6 on best form .
Also I want that big name statement. We should have some of the biggest names in world football at our club shouldn't we?
I want us to sign Griezmann next year too .

I agree with what beast is saying . The only thing I'd add though is that you're now saying the yang to the other posters ying Beast . Balancing the see saw by laying heavy on the other side .
