Just found a piece of paper outside Old Trafford in a bin bag (was looking for dinner) and seen that Jose wrote a note to his dog saying he was close to signing Pogba. Truth lads, 100%.

Now this is a genuine rumour I was waiting this whole transfer window. I don't believe anyone would disagree with it.

PS- These days at least you find something in the bin. I remember 3-4 years back when Anderson was still around, I always left disappointed.

Rumours tonight of De Gea for Benzema, or Benzema for €40m. I'd happily do either of those two deals, would love to see Benzema at the club, and think he'd excel. Great number 9, can poach, head, and more importantly for ourselves, make his own goals.

MPez

{Ed025's Note - im a massive fan of his Mpez..


1.) 04 Jun 2015 23:50:52
This is actually one rumour I fully expect us to complete. Anything under 40 million, in today's world of inflated prices, is a bargain for a guy who is still only 27.


2.) 04 Jun 2015 23:59:15
Benzema or Higuain? Which suits United more do you think?


3.) 05 Jun 2015 00:51:25
Simon 23 is old in football terms mate


4.) 05 Jun 2015 04:27:09
Benzema by far, ODavis. Our team at the minutes problem, is that we cannot create enough chances for our forwards, which IMO is why Falcao had a dreadful season. Higuain is more along the lines of Falcao's style, whilst Benzema has everything.


5.) 05 Jun 2015 06:24:48
Jmb this is a recent trend.
Turn the clock back a few years, 26-27 was the age when players usually started to peak

Dip - I was only joking mate. I was just having a wise crack about what someone posted a few days ago.


8.) 05 Jun 2015 10:23:49
He is the definition of being a complete number 9. A potentially awesome signing and would be the best striker in the League over both Aguero and Diego Costa. May also link up well with Di Maria.


9.) 05 Jun 2015 11:15:02
Would love us to sign Benzema but never better than Aguero


10.) 05 Jun 2015 11:25:50
Benzema would be a huge signing. The guy is a tank. Way better than Higuain Fingers crossed


11.) 05 Jun 2015 12:25:38
A fantastic signing IMO. I've said it before either Benzema or Lewandowski would be perfect for us. Both have all the attributes required and can provide something special at any given moment. If we are to lose Big Dave it would be an ideal transfer to receive Big Ben in return lol


12.) 05 Jun 2015 15:13:40
Benzema also fits the model of play at United and the PL. totally agree but wrestling him away will be a tough challenge!!


13.) 09 Jun 2015 19:09:27
I agree Benzema or Lewandowski would both suit us perfectly, and if . However, I do worry that Chelsea will snap up Falcao and he will bag a ton of goals in a team that creates lots of chances. Costa and Falcao are very similar, both have great positioning and finishing, as well great heading abilities, but rely on others to create chances for them, so I reckon Falcao would be incredibly dangerous in that Chelsea team. IF we signed Benzema, I assume that would be the end of the road for Van Persie?


 

 

24 Apr 2015 20:48:38
002, do you have any info on the news reported by Sky Sports Germany that Ilkay Gundogan to United has been agreed?

MPez

{Ed002's Note - It hasn't at this time.}

Fantastic signing if it happens


 

 

31 Mar 2015 13:30:38
002, or any of the ed's who may know, bit of a lesser known player, but is there any interest from anywhere in the lad Omar Abdulrahman of Al Ain in UAE? Fella seems to be causing a bit of a stir.

MPez

{Ed002's Note - Not recently. Abdulrahman has been courted by Sporting Lisbon and Manchester City, spending time with both during the summer of 2013, Ajax, Lyon and Hamburg (and probably others) also expressed interest in the player last summer.}


1.) 31 Mar 2015 16:09:50
Is there any expectation that he'll be on the move any time soon?


 

 

11 Dec 2014 06:22:02
002, you mentioned the possibility of Bale being moved on (if they can do so), so may I ask where may lie interest in GB? Would a return to the premier league be most likely? Would we be interested? Would we be capable of getting him?

Cheers in advance!

MPez

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest in him at the price they would ask.}

To be frank the slating of Lukaku is annoying as hell, both from fans and pundits. As a striker myself, I know how aggravated he must be with the way we play.

We all know Romelu Lukaku isn't a hold up striker, nor is he an Aubameyang-esque in behind type striker. He's a jack of all trades, but a master of none in reality.

However, when critcised for "going missing in big games", it's genuinely mind boggling as to how we set up to play to almost get nothing from him.

If we plan on lumping it up to him to head it, we must have wingers running in behind, or another striker playing off him. which we never f**cking do. Then we switch it up, and lump it 30 yards ahead of him to chase against 2/ 3 centre backs, with no body else putting similar pressure on the open spaces.

It's almost as if our team is set up to lump it, then if we retain the ball the players think "oh f*ck Rom actually got to that one, best try and get up there to help", in which time the opposition have also got back.

Our style of play is ridiculous. Look at the players we have, top coaches would love to work with a lot of them, and would have them playing great, attacking football against any opposition.

One thing about Mourinho is that he is a manager, but by all means he isn't a coach. He knows how to field a team of good players, but that's where he stops. He doesn't really have any upstandintg tactical implementation other than 10 behind the ball and run. He puts his team out and let's them do the work, but putting 11 different pegs in 11 square holes just doesn't do much good.

Our team currently seriously lacks in personality, and I hate to blow his trumpet too much, but Pogba seriously drags us through in the pizzazz his play style brings. We would be truly woeful without his influence in the side.

Mourinho's inconsistency shows he isn't the right man for the job, but yet his ego just keeps him coming back. The man talks the talk, but he kinda just stumbles the walk, yet somehow gets there. I've been naive in thinking Mourinho would be the right one, hell any doubts I had were overshadowed immediately by the trophies we won last season.

I miss Manchester United, and everything this club has become is a facade of what and who we are. So, i'll ask the question. Is being successful all that good, when you aren't having fun in doing so?

MPez

1.) 06 Nov 2017 13:01:37
Totally agree Mpez - We could have Messi, Ronaldo or whoever up top it would be similar, been saying it since RVP, Falcao etc all flopped with this attack with 3 men maximum philosophy - even Ibra didn't excel as well as he is capable of.

Problem on top for Lukaku is that he is a bit of a donkey on the ball to be fair, so it was a ridiculous signing considering the way Jose wants us to play. With proper wingers and a creative midfielder that gets the ball in space he would be a revelation and great value for money, but as it is he just compounds the problem because he struggles to control a ball and isn't sure where he should be half the time (nor would I be because it's helter skelter behind him) . I feel sorry for Lukaku, bit similar in some ways to when Liverpool signed Carroll, totally the wrong striker for the way they wanted to play.

Great points on Jose - the mojo he had has gone and it's all far too predictable. We lack personality throughout the team, almost everyone seems to be going through the motions.


2.) 06 Nov 2017 13:16:24
When Lukaku was scoring he was brilliant and it was a joke that we re-signed Zlatan, now he's had a bit of a bad patch he is a ridiculous signing.


3.) 06 Nov 2017 13:35:12
No one has scored more goals from open play in the league this season than lukaku .
We are second in the league, poor performance yesterday beat spurs last Sunday.
Chelsea excellent yesterday awful against Roma on Wednesday.


4.) 06 Nov 2017 16:57:47
I think what we have got with Lukaku is exactly what we thought. Quality striker who will score a shed full of goals but may go missing against the big boys. Also he is someone who needs service.
All of which we have seen.
With Pogba back I think he will get back on track, I also hope this is the case for Mikki too.


5.) 06 Nov 2017 17:18:42
Lukaku had such bad service and only thing coming his way was a high ball with 2 or sometimes 3 defenders around him and rash seemed so far away to provide him an outlet. He is not a donkey and its mick's job to orchestrate play and provide him with better service but at the moment he is quite poor. Can't even remember a single telling pass from mick to lusaka yesterday as he was losing the ball or watching fabregas run past him.


6.) 07 Nov 2017 00:44:54
Most of the centre of the pitch where mimi should b was empty for a good portion of the game. i'm a fan of miki but he's costing us points now.


 

 

01 Sep 2017 10:28:24
So Ed's any chance of a Sharkopod for January? ;)

On a serious note, congrats on getting through another window haha! Hopefully we weren't as bad this time as previous occasions! Thanks for all yous do!

I notice on the City page on the post about potential incoming players, there are a few similarities between the two Manchester clubs. Maybe getting Champions League football was even bigger a requirement than we may have even realised. I think it's fair to say there will be a huge outgoing of money from Manchester this summer, and potentially a lot of back and forth for players between United and City.

MPez

1.) 26 May 2017 11:35:00
Yeah says semedo is there first choice also, griezmann possible for city too, Fabinho another looked at by both, a titanic battle ahead.


 

 

24 May 2017 12:16:52
Came across this video on the ever famous Youtube, a compilation of chances created by our very own Polly Pogs. Some of the chances that have been fluffed on the end of his passes are verging on criminal. Almost hurts watching some of the misses in games where we dominated the game yet dropped points.

MPez

1.) 24 May 2017 13:28:45
He'd be top assister is Zlatan/ Lingard/ Rash/ Mata/ Rooney knew how to finish.

We need someone who just puts chances away in the summer. Javier Hernandez type.


2.) 24 May 2017 14:18:10
I can't get over the amount of poorly taken chances there are in this video.


3.) 24 May 2017 15:30:51
If we had goal scorer like Kane, with the amount of chances we create we'd of been challenging Chelsea.

Just had a look to see how many LEAGUE goals Kane has scored over the last three seasons; 75 goals in 102 games, fair play to the lad. He's also showing progress over that period
2014-15 = 21 goals
2015-16 = 25 goals
2016-17 = 29 goals.


 

 

31 Jul 2016 15:07:43
I must say, I'd be very interested in seeing Zlatan playing just off Rashford. They could rotate between eachother, would be very shrewd and would work well. I think Rashford has to play, simple as that.

MPez

1.) 31 Jul 2016 15:25:09
End of the day Zlatan is going to play, Mhkitaryan is too and so I'd like to think is Martial so it's either Rashford or Rooney and I don't like Marcus odds if that's the case. Always seems to come down too Rooney and is he in the way.


2.) 31 Jul 2016 15:56:02
welsh
so just rooney in the way .
zlatan and miki play no matter what?

in jose we trust.


3.) 31 Jul 2016 15:59:58
we will get plenty of opportunities to see that partnership over the course of the season i excpect us to challenge on all frounts with the exception of last year Jose has always gone and tried to win every compition he is in and with so much firepower we look like we could score record amounts in my opinion the ingredients are there and rashford and Zlatan are two of the biggest parts i'm betting on a record goal haul with zlat rooney micky rashford martial getting 15 plus each.


4.) 31 Jul 2016 16:01:01

how do you think martial and mik played last night.


5.) 31 Jul 2016 16:14:46

our options up front look great imo not sure why people are getting there knickers in a twist .
the issue looks to be in cm and cb to me.


6.) 31 Jul 2016 16:23:05
jred how any of the players played last night is irrelevant as long as they do the business when the season kicks of and for all the Rooney hate its a sad shame because he has and still is a great manchester united player history will show that. I am convinced he will play better in this team than any post SAF Jose is the man and i'm glad we have him now because the last 2 managers could not get put of the shadow of SAF but its Jose and Zlatan time add Pogba and micky and Baily we have a fantastic maybe the best team ever on paper if it gels to its potential we will see who has egg on there faces when we win 2 out of 4 competitions and everone plays and contributes to the team something Wayne has always done more than most.


7.) 31 Jul 2016 16:31:47

i agree we have the makings of a good team .
i think we have great options up top a people are still moaning.


8.) 31 Jul 2016 16:39:25
I don't hate Rooney at all I'm just saying if Rashford is to play it seems to centre on Rooney playing or not. People are quick to jump to the defence of Rooney even when he isn't getting stick, tbh Rooney isn't that good anymore and is holding United back I've said it for 3 years that's my opinion and I appreciate others but how well or not people played in a friendly is irrelevant the fact is Rooney will be found a place in the team regardless it seems and yes in Jose we trust, hope Jose can get the best from him and also be bold enough to drop him when needed. I find it silly that no matter how badly Rooney plays he's still somehow the best player as is staunchly defended, some need to open their eyes. Martial and Mhkitaryan may have had an average game last night but it's ok if Rooney has several he's still somehow the best, laughable really, I don't take joy from seeing him decline but the club got to move forward and for me that's without Rooney.


9.) 31 Jul 2016 16:51:36
welsh
who said rooney was the best?
rooney plays the 10 role rash for me is at his best at 9.

its sounds like you have made your mind up before the season has even started.

i honestly think jose will pick the best team if rooneys not in it no probs . but people like yourself still won't accept it if jose like every other manager picks rooney .


10.) 31 Jul 2016 17:10:42
No I've made my mind up based on the last few years performances from him, people like myself, oh aye, not allowed an opinion unless it matches your own. Doesn't matter how badly he plays he's still better than we got etc I've read on here several times, I've also said multiple times hope Jose gets the best out of him or will be strong enough to drop him but will support him while he's here, can't be assed with the pro Rooney brigade getting their knickers in a twist every time someone has a opinion on him that's not positive, I'm not one who slags the players in live chat etc but I've also got the best interests of the club at heart and sorry lads time to phase him out for the betterment of united, in my opinion that is!


11.) 31 Jul 2016 17:27:00
welsh
i don't think he will leave this season and i will see how he plays during the season before i make my mind up if he should leave next year .

you have posted the same thing for 3 year . we have other players mufc is bigger than rooney .


12.) 31 Jul 2016 20:17:38
Zlatan, Micky, Martial, Rooney, Rashford.
Any 4 from that 5 starting will mean we will score goals. It's a long season so plenty of opportunities for all.
Also more than ever it is a 14 man game with subs equally as important as starters. let's not forget our super subs in the CL final.


13.) 31 Jul 2016 23:02:16
Yawn. Same thing every year. Yes Rooney has declined but he's still better than most of our options. He was our best no.10 last season, that's not saying much though as the only player to come close was Fellaini. We have a new manager, some new players, and a new system. I'm more than happy to let him have a few games to claim that no.10 role again under another manager. If he doesn't then so be it we have options. If he does then will the slagging stop? Probably not, another current and preemptive apology to the eds for the continuation of the most boring conversation in football history.

I'm sorry, find me another team that produces 1 or 2 players every few years. If you actually bothered to watch our youth teams you'd know that we have some brilliant players, however them taking the next step is a whole different ball game. I think the 'Class of 92' may have spoiled your view on this matter.

Should watch Lazio if you ever have free time and they're on. Great team to watch when they're playing well, with some exciting talent.

M-S, Parolo, Immobile (although hasn't done well eslewhere), Keita-Balde are all a joy to watch when they're on point.

I agree, 001, I think he would have cost a fair bit, and may be why we have taken a step back alongside them saying he is going to sign a new contract. I envisage him going to either Bayern or Juventus within the next few seasons. Mabe Juve when Dybala goes.

{Ed001's Note - Juve were very interested in taking him in the summer, hence the new contract to stop it.}

There’s 2 types of “on their day” type of player.

The first is a player who will consistently perform at a 7/ 10, then on occasion, or for spells, perform at 9-10/ 10. This is your Pogba, De Bruyne etc.

The second type is a player who will either perform sub-5/ 10 or 9-10/ 10. This is your Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

For a club at the level of Manchester United, player number 2 is just not enough.

Wasn't there a BT game recently where Robbie Savage was joined by Michael Owen and Owen Hargreavesx. Travesty.

I don't know who is the worst of the three. Hargreaves is that bloke who if you told him you've been to Tenerife, he's been on an all inclusive trip to Elevenerife. Top prick that bloke.
