I'm hearing Matic done. 40 mil pds. Great news if true.

1.) 29 Jul 2017 23:13:23
I hope so where have u heard that mate?

2.) 29 Jul 2017 23:20:09
Fellow Red sent me the link from the Daily Fail and it actually says to be announced next week after reading again so maybe jumped the gun there but I'm hoping it's immenent. The timing would make sense if the Fellaini to Galatasaray rumour is true.

3.) 29 Jul 2017 23:50:41
My mate also follows Pilip De Brun on twitter who I've never heard of and and I'm not one to trust twitter myself. He's reporting Matic within days and Galatasaray offering 10 mil pds for Fellaini yet to be accepted. Seems extremely low to me.

4.) 30 Jul 2017 05:58:10
Ed002 alluded to the fact that a deal for Matic could be possible. It makes sense since the other interest has waned from him and Chelsea have made him train alone.

Fellaini out Matic in is a great upgrade for our midfield!

5.) 30 Jul 2017 08:19:24
It looks like Matic might happen but please don't use the Daily Mail as a source of information.

6.) 30 Jul 2017 12:46:16
I just read Chelsea are letting Matic come to us as a goodwill gesture on account of his help in winning them two titles in three years.

I call BS on this reason, he is surplus to requirements. Replace the word "Hazard" with "Matic" and do you think they would be applying the same "goodwill gesture"?

7.) 30 Jul 2017 12:54:15
Chelsea have signed a better player so they are letting matic leave .

8.) 30 Jul 2017 13:12:09
Debatable if bakayoko is a better player. He's good but not sure if he is as good as matic yet or will be. Good deal for us IMO.

Only going by what I've seen of bakayoko and never been overly impressed.

9.) 30 Jul 2017 13:20:06
Thats righ we signed valencia a better player so let ronaldo leave. lol lol lol.

10.) 30 Jul 2017 14:36:38
Bakayoko isn't an upgrade on Matic.

11.) 30 Jul 2017 14:37:33
The lad hasn't even signed and the pitch forks are out. Explain to me how they've signed a "better" player? You'd rather a player who's 24 next month, has had one full season under his belt. (bit part player in his last few seasons) Over a player who's won the premier league twice in three years, knows what the manager wants, knows the league.

This is a very smart signing. Gives us great options in the middle and let's Herrera and Pogba off the leash. Really happy if we can get him in.

12.) 30 Jul 2017 14:53:57
Your right mumbles its a bit sad
But in jose we trust🤣.

13.) 30 Jul 2017 14:56:43
Bakayoko and Matic are very different players. I would say that with Kante they can afford a slightly more forward CM like Bakayoko but With mourinho seemingly wanting to allow Pogba to be that forward attacking midfielder then Matic fits our need.
Question is if The Wig leaves are we then after another CM?

14.) 30 Jul 2017 15:14:33
Given the choice out of Bakayoko and Matic it's not joko I'd go for Yoko every day of the week. My view is people saying Matic is better either haven't watched much of Yoko, watched the games against Juventus only in the CL (where he had a face mask and was very poor to be fair) and didn't watch much of Matic last season. Or they use a totally different method of rating players to me which I don't understand.

Matic was supreme a few years ago, but don't let that mislead you is my advice. Again I hope to be proven wrong, but we are buying a 7/ 10 player with a chance he could drop lower if current trajectory is maintained. Chelsea have got a 8/ 10 player with the potential to be a 9 or even 10/ 10 player.

I try to take away the fact we are interested in or own a player when rating them, it helps keep you relatively honest as it's easy to be biased. I try doing it with betting as well, but that is very difficult indeed. Heart often rules head.

15.) 30 Jul 2017 15:46:53
Beast, I don't disagree with you there but the other side to it is that if Mourinho gets the best out of Matic again he is easily a 9/ 10 player. And I have never seen Bakayoko play in the prem so wouldn't make assumptions based on 1 real season in Ligue 1.

16.) 30 Jul 2017 15:54:00
Baka is a better player because he's signed for someone, if he had signed for us we should have signed Matic, you know the rules.

17.) 30 Jul 2017 16:15:54
If and when Matic signs, he now frees up Pog and Ander to do their thing and release the shackles a bit in our play. Excellent signing and one we've needed for years.

{Ed004's Note - I'm very happy with the signing. Hopefully, means we are moving towards a 433 which seems to suit our current crop of players better}

18.) 30 Jul 2017 16:22:41
Ed i'm not so sure i think we are heading for a 442 particularly if ibra resigns. Diamond shape same as madrid in the last couple of months in spain and ucl final.
Matic deepest pog herrera and miki at 10. Backed up by carrick pereira mata and hopfully 1 more if fellaini leaves.
2 front spots coverd by ibra martial rash lukaku.

{Ed004's Note - I could see us playing that as well. Would get the best out of all our players}

19.) 30 Jul 2017 16:27:41
Just seen on the beeb it's meant to be in the region of £50m.

Tell me what you want for that midfielder you don't need and desperately wants to join us, now add £10-20m, do we have a deal? Oh and throw in some add-ons that we can pay you over time but won't reveal in the official figures, too many people laugh at us already for some reason.

20.) 30 Jul 2017 16:32:50
Yeah not big on posters slating players, especially one that hasn't even signed for the club yet.

Those in glass houses.

21.) 30 Jul 2017 16:39:32
If matic is even a 6/ 10 but allows pogba to become the 10/ 10 I don't care.

22.) 30 Jul 2017 16:49:24
Im seeing € 45 euro including all add ons beast. Truth is prob something around that.

23.) 30 Jul 2017 18:13:59
In the years window Ken, that's a decent deal. For God sake sigurdson looks as though he will go for the same.

And posters think we are having our pants pulled down for a title winning CM starter.

24.) 30 Jul 2017 20:35:31
Ignore the boo boys angel😂😂😂.

25.) 31 Jul 2017 22:10:08
People having an opinion on a player hardly means "the pitchforks are out" or the player is being "slated" or that the people saying it are "boo boys"

I'm not a matic fan. Would rather have signed someone else. Will I support him? Of course, he's now a united player and I sincerely hope he changes my opinion of him. No pitch forks or booing here, but it doesn't change the fact he's not my cup of tea. People are allowed a different opinion.

That was actually comical. Quite possible the worst shootout ever.

1.) 24 Jul 2017 00:23:07
Horrendous. Ten minutes of my life wasted. Why don't the likes of Lukaku, Pogba and Rashford step up.

2.) 24 Jul 2017 02:34:53
Why show your hand, when big game coming up ⚽️🤸🏿‍♂️.

3.) 24 Jul 2017 10:38:35
definitely not the worst, but close second. The worst has to be the sunderland vs utd cup game under moyes, calling it atrocious would be being kind.

4.) 24 Jul 2017 13:57:23
rashford couldn't take one he had been subbed, but I couldn't believe pogba didn't take one.



23 Jul 2017 22:58:33
What a play by Martial to set that tap in up or Lingard. That's what he's capable of. He needs to start enjoying his football and relish attacking defenders like that. He could give defenders fits if he decides to dribble and have a little confidence in his ability. Good half from United.

AJH, I actually think Blind is a valuable squad player. I just don't think he's a natural LB and can be exposed at times. I do agree that he gives it his all, respects the badge and plays where he's asked with no complaints. He's a valuable asset and I often defend his contribution to the team with my mates. Same for Fellaini and others mentioned above. I'm fully aware we can only play 11 at a time and winning games and titles in the epl is extremely tough without selfless squad players like Blind. It wasn't a personal attack on him. I simply think, and hope, that Shaw comes good and nails down LB since he has the potential to be a top player. Maybe I wasnt clear with my OP on LB. I'm not suggesting we buy a new LB. ideally Shaw comes around, avoids injury and Blind remains a solid backup that can cover CB, LB and holding MF for years. I'm happy with the squad as is and I'm pretty confident in our chances to compete for top of the league.

ESPN FC reporting that Jose has decided against a fourth signing at this point and will wait until January to reassess his options since if would mean offloading fringe players.

If that's the case I really hope Shaw gets fit and takes his chance. Blind is hardworking and is a good squad player but he should be a stop gap and I don't feel he can be counted on game in game out. Physically and positionally he is often a liability.

I feel that we can wait on a winger and RB if we can't recruit who Jose has identified in this window. Panic buying is not the answer.

Great start to the season for Jones. Looks very composed and confident so far. Hope he's over his injuries because he's forming a good partnership would Bailly. Our attack has been getting most of the attention and although it's much improved our back line has impressed as well. Really happy with our form so far.

He bossed that game. What a signing and massive mistake it was by Chelsea to sell us exactly what we needed. Totally deserving of MOTM today.
