Boys I was looking in to what is going wrong for us and I came across this.
Total shots 387 (3rd) in league.
Shots on goal 199 (2nd)
Goals 51 7th
Ratio 13.2% (17th)
Now the last one is conversion ratio. 3 teams below us Sunderland already relegated and Middlesbrough nearly gone.
There's no getting away from it we need a world class striker.


1.) 02 May 2017 08:00:06
We need shooting practice.

2.) 02 May 2017 08:16:17
I say we need both.

3.) 02 May 2017 09:01:31
We had one in Zlatan and he was getting criticised in here!

Personally don't think our mids and wide players contribute anywhere nearly enough. Mata, Martial, Miki, Lingard, Rashford all should be scoring more than they do.

{Ed004's Note - We need both! We have missed some shocking chances this year. Hopefully it will improve next season when we have a settled team. Martial, Mata, Rashford and Mkhitarian have all shown in the past that they know where the net is}

4.) 02 May 2017 09:12:07
CSM I will fully agree with you.
Papers saying we need to break bank paying £155m for Greaseman. I'd rather use it to buy Duvall . Of all the times this is the first time I'm hearing Hargreaves talk sense. With £155m we could start a nuclear war against any country gosh. It's going crazy.
We can buy so many more players to strengthen other departments. I am against spending so much for Greaseman . 😫😫.

5.) 02 May 2017 10:42:33
Well if we do get this Greaseman fellow, the United machinery would be oiled well and run perfectly.

6.) 02 May 2017 11:35:37
Good post Leahy, I suppose that puts things into perspective and I totally agree with Eric that we need a lot more from our attacking players.

Whilst our finishing has been poor I'm not sure that tells the full story!

From memory despite our struggles in front of goal we've managed to get in front against Swansea, Bournemouth, Stoke and Arsenal at OT and we've surrendered leads against Everton away, Anderlect (twice) and Rostov in the Europa.

This suggests to me that even through the stats suggests that our defence is relatively solid we also have a vulnerability at the back that needs attention.

Titles are built on clean sheets and a good Utd team should not be surrendering leads to Swansea, Bournemouth and Stoke especially at OT. If we hang on and win two of those games we'd be 4 points better off and in pole position for top 4. We've conceded last minute goals to Arsenal and Everton, if we hang on to win one of those games that's another 2 points. Title winning teams should be scoring last minute winners not conceding them and holding onto leads especially at home.

It's been an incredibly frustrating season and with better finishing and defending a so far underwhelming season could have been very different.

The unbeaten run is positive and demonstrates a degree of mental toughness and resilience. Moving forward we need to take care of the little details which make the big difference. Concentration at the back and clinical ruthlessness up front. Unfortunately it's these details that cost the money. On one hand we've very close on the other we're a million miles away, I suppose it just depends on what side of the fence you sit.

7.) 02 May 2017 11:36:06
Slippery slope boys this one.

8.) 02 May 2017 12:29:03
If we are going to spend stupid money we should be looking at dybala or lewondonski.
Or John Travolta would be a good grease man.

9.) 02 May 2017 13:07:56
Travolta's movement not quite what it used to be.

10.) 02 May 2017 13:40:45
That's what I am saying. We should not be overspending on Greaseman.
He is good but I am sure there are better buys around. Not spending so much on just one player.
I'd rather we buy others like Thomas Mooler.
Else Loowandowski is also a good buy.
Alternatively, we can buy the guy from Spurs, Cane?

11.) 02 May 2017 14:56:47
Michael Caine might be more likely.

12.) 02 May 2017 15:13:34
Travolta is fast like grease lightning.

13.) 03 May 2017 00:03:23
Yeah Caine and Travolta makes a great team.

{Ed007's Note - Don't you mean couple?}

14.) 03 May 2017 04:23:15
That's why you're Bond. You're absolutely right. 😂😂😂.

01 Jul 2016 15:23:25
Ed02 are manchester united putti g through a bid for pogba, and if the fee is met do u see him moving back to manchester.


{Ed002's Note - It will be a little clearer on Tueday evening, perhaps Wednesday.}

1.) 01 Jul 2016 15:37:14
Cheers ed.

2.) 01 Jul 2016 15:59:40
Ed002, 2hats your thoughts on it? Is this a case of utd being stupid enough to pay more than anyone else, as you've previously suggested, or do you think this has the potential to be a good deal?

I may be being a but stupid, as you've said he doesn't want to come here and that RM is his preference, but I don't know how common it is for a big name player to not go straight to his preferred choice and as such the potential trouble it can cause.

{Ed002's Note - I don't understand your post at all. I have explained that after a meeting on Tuesday it may be clearer in terms of what will be happening. I have no idea what you are prattling on about nor what you find confusing from my very short and very simple comment.}

3.) 01 Jul 2016 16:01:57
Would you mind elaborating on the significance of Tuesday/ Wednesday?
Thanks for info updates 002.

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant.}

4.) 01 Jul 2016 16:20:11
Let be put it anither way Ed.

Previously you said this :

{Ed002's Note - The deal is simple - if MU pay way more than one would expect for the player and way, way, way, over the odds in fees, they might be able to sign a player who wants to move to Real Madrid. }

Given that comment and the fact we may now sign him, I'm asking 2 things.

1. Is this a case of utd paying way over the odds compared to what other clubs are prepared to pay?

2. How unusual is it for a big player to not get his first choice club, and how much of a problem would you expect that to cause when playing for his 2nd / 3rd etc choice club?

{Ed002's Note - The situation is as I explained. And it changes nothing in terms of what I said.}

5.) 01 Jul 2016 16:29:28
I think we should hold any Pogba questions until Wednesday chaps eh? No point in continually asking questions, when the answer has been given and nothing is known further for 5 days. I get p*ssed off with myself that I sit reading the same question over and over, so god knows how the eds cope.

6.) 01 Jul 2016 16:38:44
Agree brendan I can see it going the way of the pear with ed002 and we have only just got him/ her back and loads of the longer term posters are coming back too it's great atm.
I hope no one f##ks it up.

7.) 01 Jul 2016 16:42:18
If it's unimportant why is it significant ed?

{Ed002's Note - All of the detail of what is happening is not worth my explaining.}

8.) 01 Jul 2016 16:44:41
I agree with Brendan81. it is great to finally have ed02 back. he has told us it will be clearer next week. let's wait until next week to ask for further information even though it may be killing you inside as you want as much info now as you can get.

9.) 01 Jul 2016 16:44:42
Good shout bren.
I know you don't think we should sign pogba. What do you make of zlatan signing?
And mhyk?

10.) 01 Jul 2016 16:45:38
I'm not trying to piss people off. But I'm curious how unusual it is for a player to move to a club that isn't his first choice.

In the real world lots of us work for companies that don't even reach our top 100 first choices.

I suppose if di Maria is anything to go off, it typically ends badly when you're a highly paid elite footballer.

11.) 01 Jul 2016 17:07:35
Ed002, will Pogba be involved in the Brexit negotiations and if so what hairstyle will he have?

12.) 01 Jul 2016 17:27:58
That a question to me Ken? :-)

13.) 01 Jul 2016 17:44:59
Mourinho's formal unveiling to media will be on Tuesday. One of the significant events related to United.

14.) 01 Jul 2016 18:00:29
Calm down lads, the man said it would be clearer tue. or wed.

15.) 01 Jul 2016 18:09:23
Yes Brendan.

16.) 01 Jul 2016 18:55:16
I would have no problems going for Pogba if he hadn't left as he had, saying it was due to playing time, when it seems it wasn't, from things people have said. That plus the fact he wants Real not us, makes me want him less, and £80m+ is way over priced, but we have been silly in the recent past.
Zlatan in terms of quality, experience and the effect he could have on the younger players and squad as a whole, may be ok short term, but I worry as it will be all about him and nothing else, which might not be good. Then again he could have an Eric effect, and who would moan about that?
Micky, I've not seen enough to give a fair assessment. The bits I've seen of him playing at Dortmund, he seems quick, skilful, has a good shot and can pass the ball well. He along with Martial and Rashford could give some serious speed going forward, which would bring some much needed excitement back to the team.

17.) 01 Jul 2016 22:00:32
If I had to name a 100 companies I'd be down to my local kebab shop and taxi rank before half way.

ED 002 u crack me up! :D.



09 Jun 2016 13:22:03
I've heard we are after seamus coleman again, any of the Ed's know if he will be moving this summer.


{Ed025's Note - to be honest leahy he had a very poor season for us, it was in stark contrast to the season before when he was arguably our best player, there was talk then of united being interested and after that his form took a terrible dip, that leads me to think that he would be open to a move and especially if it were one of the biggest names like utd, but with moshiri and now koeman at the helm i would think they would try and persuade him to stay mate..

1.) 09 Jun 2016 20:46:18
Cheers ed.

{Ed025's Note - no problem mate..

2.) 09 Jun 2016 22:01:25
Has Koeman been appointed yet?

3.) 10 Jun 2016 00:03:29
African, which team do you support?
You seem to pop up every now and then out of the blue.

4.) 09 Jun 2016 23:13:45
Ed025 if your about, do you think ye will be a force to reckon with next year, with a new manager and some money to spend ed,
I was surprised to see Gibson getting a new contract.

{Ed025's Note - i would like to think we would be competitive leahy and be in and around the top 6, its exciting times at goodison with the introduction of moshiri who has big plans for the club and for the first time in a long while lack of money cannot be an excuse. darron getting a 2yr contract shocked me to be honest mate, not just because of his terrible injury record but because of his off-field antics..



29 May 2016 14:13:51
Ed04, do you know if we are interested in nainggolan.


{Ed004's Note - I don't think so. He's likely to stay in Roma I think}

1.) 30 May 2016 10:07:47
We can hope. The perfect player we need.



26 Oct 2015 10:16:26
Ed have we any interest in John stones.
Or are we looking else where for a CB.


{Ed002's Note - Elsewhere but I would not be surprised if Stones were to be looked at.}

1.) 26 Oct 2015 10:52:34
Cheers ed.

2.) 26 Oct 2015 14:21:42
Does any interest in Hummels remain? A while back we were also linked with Mustafi, a good young defender, any interest there? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Try the search engine.}

I'm just wandering boys amount the regular posters, just a simple yes or no.
Ronaldo back or not.


1.) 18 Jun 2017 11:28:27
No. Let's look to the future now.

2.) 18 Jun 2017 11:29:14

3.) 18 Jun 2017 11:43:17
Yes for would i like him to sign.
No for do i think it will happen.

4.) 18 Jun 2017 11:50:02
No way jose.

5.) 18 Jun 2017 12:08:48
Heart says yes but brain says no. He turns 33 in February and although he looks after himself like few others he cannot stop the march of time. He still has another few years at the very top and maybe a year or two after that at a very high level left in him. But moving back to a more physically demanding league isn't going to be easy for him. Maybe PSG would be the best move for him. If he can go there and help them win their first UCL then he will have won it with three different clubs and cement his place as one of the greatest ever.

On a financial note he would want at least a four year deal, which means we will likely be looking at a deal that will top 300m easily when you consider transfer fee, wages and agents/ legal fees. That could even top 400m if Real hold out for a fee in excess of 180m which is probable considering they reportedly want 80m for Morata.

For a player who is only going to decline that is too much.

So with a heavy heart I say no.

6.) 18 Jun 2017 12:19:54
The romantic would say yes and he is still more than capable of being the best player in this league but financially it would be a haemorrhage cash.

Let's all remember one key aspect of the Ronaldo team and that is they manage all his commercial ventures. There would be very fine margins for the club to claw back even a minor part of the investment.

7.) 18 Jun 2017 13:11:57
no from me it will be to mutch of a circus.

8.) 18 Jun 2017 13:16:20
If Ryan Giggs could provide us with his services till his late 30s (i know a bit in midfield) then why not Ronaldo? He looks after his body well enough to last another 5/ 6 years for sure.

As a CF, you need to be smart/ clever and not just keep running like a donkey!

So yes for me anyday!

9.) 18 Jun 2017 13:22:02
We didn't have to pay £100m and £500,000 a week for Giggs when he was 33. Any team that buys Ronaldo this summer are complete mugs.

10.) 18 Jun 2017 13:23:48
If it's him AND another striker then yes but if it's him OR someone who could lead our line for a decade then it's no.

11.) 18 Jun 2017 13:27:49
Hell yes.

Won't happen though.

12.) 18 Jun 2017 15:03:36
Agree with Shappy my thoughts exactly.

13.) 18 Jun 2017 15:10:15
I kind of get your reasoning Danny but never thought I'd read 'any team that buys Ronaldo this summer are complete mugs'.
My head says no he's only getting older but then I think about what he done in the 2nd half of the season just gone especially the latter stages of the CL and I believe whoever signs him could get 100+ goals over the next 3 seasons. No other player comes close to his goal scoring except Messi and he doesn't look like slowing down any time soon in the no.9 role.

14.) 18 Jun 2017 15:37:30
Like that my heart says yes but my head says no.

15.) 18 Jun 2017 15:40:31
He would do a much better job than Zlatan. I think CR would actually enable us to have more chance of success whilst we are still in transition.
All depends on price v value added. A 4yr deal mooted by some would imo frustrate our younger talent and may inhibit high profile younger potential signings.
I'd be in favour of 2,may be 3 years.

16.) 18 Jun 2017 15:27:05
If he avoids major injuries Ronaldo will be remain a top player into his late 30s I doubt there's a better physically blessed athlete in football right now so yes

17.) 18 Jun 2017 16:35:33
Yes, but it's all a game and will stay at Madrid with his taxes paid. Imo.

18.) 18 Jun 2017 17:59:14
No from me.

19.) 18 Jun 2017 18:02:49
Yeah baby 😆😆.

20.) 18 Jun 2017 18:30:07

21.) 18 Jun 2017 18:56:08
Yes from me

He would have been the difference between draws and wins last season. If he was there instead of zlatan that is.

22.) 18 Jun 2017 19:42:51
Since I read that he 'apparently' wants to leave, I have been thinking if I would want him to return or not. I've gone from no to yes, back to no again, then yes, then no. I've settled on yes now. It would be a lot of money in fee, but get Rooney and Zlatan off the books and his wages are more than covered. He'd get goals guaranteed, and 90% of our draws last season would have been wins, where could we have ended up last season with just that one addition?

We would make money from him being here which would help with the transfer fee, and we would have one of the two real world class stars at the club, which for Woody and the Glazers would be ideal for doing what they do best, securing even more sponsorship deals globally.

That said, it won't happen and he will be at Madrid next season.

23.) 18 Jun 2017 19:52:02
My heart says yes and my head says yes too! 😁.



25 May 2017 13:51:28
Herrera for me was United's best player this season, brilliant at sniffing out danger and putting a stop to it even when he is told to sit by the manager he does it.
The game last night's second goal even though he wasn't involved he spotted miki running out of the Ajax box Herrera ran over to Miki and told her back in the box.


1.) 25 May 2017 16:19:58
Agreed. He has really stepped up this season.

2.) 25 May 2017 16:54:40
I hope he doesn't leave us for Barcelona.
But if he does, Andre Comes went for 50m, they can have Herrera for 65+.

3.) 25 May 2017 17:52:09
Agreed, he just needs to cut out the cry baby routine which he pulls fairly regularly.



15 May 2017 22:15:16
Ryan Griggs wants us to sign Sanchez.
Not a bad signing that would be knows the league well that a big help.
We also need a top holding midfielder with a bit of aggression. if poch leaves spurs some of the players might want a move. most of the spurs first 11 would be an upgrade than what we have. i like alderweild fine defender.
Hope we win the Europa cause if we don't this season was a failure.


1.) 15 May 2017 23:22:04
Sanchez would be a great addition, not sure if it would be possible. He has goals in him and plays with a lot of heart. Can play anywhere across the front as well, though I think Jose would see him as a winger.

2.) 16 May 2017 00:27:34
Well if Ryan Griggs recommends him.

3.) 16 May 2017 02:05:24
Maybe Sanchez has a nice wife.



08 May 2017 11:52:39
It was a very disappointing day yesterday,
United team going to arsenal showing no bit of interest no bit of character, It was like Jose told them sit back take it easy and don't get any injuries. now the first thing before the game in the tunnel, smiling shaking hands, probably a few selfies not a rib of hair out of place except for Rooney.

I don't want to be slaying Rooney but the man was finished 4 years ago.
This game was one of the best fixtures in football, now it's embarrassing.
I remember the start of the season my daughter said to me United are in Europa tonight. i said to her I tired have no interest in that, they will play a second team and get knocked out early cause we will be concentrating on winning the league for now.

Jose still needs another year no more excuses after that.
Now I thought to myself today how would Jose get on if he was managing a club near the bottom of the league with no big money.
He has been very negative lately.

Get your players in Jose for next season and don't ever again go to arsenal and play like that from leahy 12.


1.) 08 May 2017 12:23:47
This is what baffles me, if we were to lose that game, why not play Willock, McTominay, Olosunde, Tuanzebe, Mitchell and 6th I can't remember and start them.
We neither rested all players or now did we try to win.
It was a hopeless performance.
The only reason I think we didn't play youngsters was maybe Jose didn't want them to lose 4-0 against an arsenal side. But that really shouldn't be an issue. Neither this nor that.

2.) 08 May 2017 12:32:56
It was pretty poor to watch yesterday. The first half was the same as the City game where our wingers ended up getting pushed further and further back. City are a better attacking side than Arsenal imo and Jose should have had a bit more balls than he did. Telling Mata and Mkhitaryan to stay further up the pitch would have given us more of an out ball. Still looked poor overall though and if there is a game I would have expected a but more ambition in out of the City, Arsenal and Spurs games we have at the end of this season it would have been the Arsenal game.

For me Mourinho needs to have two full seasons before he can be judged. While the football hasn't been brilliant for parts of the season it has still been far superior to the boring football served up by an LVG team imo. If at the end of next season were in the same position as we are now with potentially another 200 million spent then no one could argue he has been successful. On the other hand if we spend that 200 million and are sitting top of the league at this point next season with CL games we will look back at this point and say that it wasn't totally Mourinho's team or the players hadn't adapted to his methods etc etc.

It's likely that 5 or 6 of the players that played yesterday won't be here next season with Darmian, Smalling, Jones, Rooney, De Gea, Martial and Carrick all having their future at the club questioned. Carrick should be given an extension though and we should do all we can to keep De Gea. Potentially Mata, Young, Blind, Romero, Shaw, Herrera, Ibrahimovic leaving as well if rumours are to be believed. Obviously not all of this will happen but we need to get it right this summer with who we keep, sell and sign or we risk potentially becoming also rans.



16 Apr 2017 23:14:25
I had a good feeling about today's game but then I saw the line up and had my doubts,
Herrera was like 2 players today and fellani did a great job. de gea had a day off, rojo and baily were brilliant 2 crafty boys back there.
Even darmin didn't put a foot wrong, and rashfords pace upfront, had a little bet on rash to score first.
Great to get a bit of confidence going in to the last number of games.

Lads the tax thing should start at the top. the royal family the richest in Britain don't pay taxes and they are worth trillions. the European parliament spend 50 mil. A day on expenses, private jets, champagne, etc.
Peoples tax money.
So for them reasons fair play to any man that can avoid paying a tax.
