I bet on United to win and to qualify.

I'm absolutely buzzing. Great that Kimpembe was the one to give away the penalty considering he should have been sent off in the first game.

Ole Ole.

We were lucky to get the penalty but so were they in the 1st leg when kimpembe wasn't sent off and even got the goal.
Mostly I'm happy to see Di Maria sulk. Plenty players get taunted by the fans and so did Di Maria by the United fans in the 1st leg. It would have been a big issue if one of our players had gone and shouted at the opposing fans " P**a f**k off" continously while celebrating the goal.

2.) 06 Mar 2019 22:57:47
I bet on a Lukaku hat trick. Suffice to say it was bitter sweet when Rashford stepped up and denied me £750. Still buzzing though 🤪.

3.) 06 Mar 2019 22:58:50
Took great pleasure in seeing Neymar’s face at the end. I have a severe irrational dislike for him.

4.) 07 Mar 2019 04:26:42
Eric, it’s not irrational, he does many things that annoy many people.

5.) 07 Mar 2019 07:18:24
There are many people who have an entirely rational dislike of Neymar, myself included. Don't beat yourself up about it.

6.) 07 mar 2019 10:29:59
i had 3 - 1 with rashford 1st goal 255 - 1 . why didn't lukaku square it for him? who cares ole is at the wheel, what's the chances for utd vs city or the scousers in the final? who would you rather play?

7.) 07 Mar 2019 12:11:38
would be nice if the draw fell with all 4 english teams in the semi.

im sure they do both the qf and sf draws at the same time.

8.) 07 Mar 2019 12:37:09
I had lukaku to score and us to win, us to win and part of a multi bet- since oles took over the reins my bets are staring to come in so much more. If only for that reason give him the job lol. Best utd watch for years imo.

9.) 07 Mar 2019 13:45:45
Wow is all i can say. Buzzing with the result. Didn't expect it so its a massive bonus.

2 games running Lukaku could have had last minute hat tricks from pens :) .

Not lukakus biggest biggest fan but since the form has returned I've no complaints.

Also love that Neymar is crying on instagram, quite ironic really the way he cheats.

10.) 07 Mar 2019 19:41:08
I don't think many actually like neymar. Overrated play actor. He's got more rolls than Greggs.



19 Dec 2018 12:18:46
welcome back Ole,

Let's all Unite and get behind him and the team. Whether your happy or not with the appointment, it's important to back him.

Good luck.

Mad Hatter

1.) 19 Dec 2018 14:44:14
Really? No more i don't see his CV? No credentials? didn't want him in the first place?

2.) 19 Dec 2018 15:24:01
UA, it doesn't matter whether they are the manager you wanted, once they are appointed, you set it all aside and get behind them.

Many of us didn't want Jose, but we still got behind him to start with. Just because we weren't behind him at the end doesn't mean we weren't behind him at the start.

3.) 19 Dec 2018 16:10:17

Will Mourinho be sacked before January?

Or will the board back him?

Who is a suitable replacement, Zidane did well at RM, could he rebuild a team? Who knows.

Jardim did quite well at Monaco. would he be a good choice?

Trying to get Pochittino is like trying to sell rice to the chinese.

Mourinho has got the team playing how it should be, he is at fault for that. The players are also guilty and some have been unprofessional aka Instagram likes of 'sack Mourinho'.

Do we sell a fee players in January to start a summer rebuild.

A DOF is a certainly going to be key.

Europa football next year might prove to be difficult to qualify for.

This is o e rollercoaster ride I can't wait to get off.

Are you jred in disguise?

2.) 16 Dec 2018 22:53:11

For a fee, I can be a thing you want ;)

3.) 16 Dec 2018 23:17:12
If we can't get top 4, which let's face it, we won't, then I'd rather we didn't qualify for the Europa League. A new manager is going to need time to make his mark, and it would only be a distraction - gives him more time on the training pitch with them between league games.

4.) 17 Dec 2018 16:46:29
Keep an eye on the new fella at Southampton. I forget his name but he worked wonders with rb Leipzig and I wouldn't be surprised to see him move quickly if he can get some consistent good results where he is now.

5.) 17 Dec 2018 20:08:07
The guy at Seville could be a contender.



13 Dec 2018 13:09:40
We really need to sell Jones, Rojo, Valencia, Pogba, Fellaini in January.

It might sound drastic but they offer very little, in particular Pogba aka le sulk.

I honestly don't know why Jones is still at the club. He is a championship player. Slow, lacks mobility and has a poor technique. Similar attributes to Lukaku. Even finishes like Lukaku.

What happened to players running into space, looking for a pass, running through on goal.

I would have liked to see Greenwood and Garner get 10-15 minutes past night.
It would have be far more valuable and beneficial to them.

If we play like we did last night against Valencia when we play Liverpool, we might just end up getting stuffed.

Imagine the fun Salah, Firmini and Sane would have playing against Jones.

Mad Hatter

1.) 13 Dec 2018 15:00:55
What about in addition to this the novel idea of the coach “coaching” the players and making them better not worse?

How come every signing we make gets worse than when they joined and instantly regrets coming to the club?

Almost feel sorry for Fred, he has made an awful career move.

2.) 13 Dec 2018 16:34:35
In the case of jones you can't fix stupid.

I'm sure Fred will be fine under the next manager if the bean counter can actually get an appointment right.

3.) 13 Dec 2018 22:56:40
I don’t get why Jose has been so bad. He was a winner until he joined us!

4.) 14 Dec 2018 05:34:30
No manager will be a league winner with this squad eric.
Does anybody here think we have a squad capable of winning the league?

5.) 14 Dec 2018 09:50:52
I agree Ken we don't have a squad good enough to win the league however why is that.
We have bought 11 players under the manager that's an entire new team. Currently he inherited a great GK has bought his own players for 3 of the back 4 positions, an entire new 3 man midfield, a striker and a wideman .
Many players people feel maybe aren't good enough are still go to players and if they are given new deals it's hard to blame the tools he was left .

6.) 14 Dec 2018 12:42:44
A lot of the buys have been bad though. Fred could be a good player but currently doesn't fit. Pogba on paper is top class but doesn't fit. I think it was shappy who gave us a statistical breakdown on his performance the other night. Sanchez on paper a good player but doesn't fit. And that's the three most obvious without touching lukaku, bailly etc. We still lack a commanding centre half, tempo setting midfielder and a right sided attacker.

7.) 14 Dec 2018 16:41:41
Should be a team capable of beating Brighton and the rest, and should be higher than 6th as well.

8.) 14 Dec 2018 19:03:53
I agree with that noucamp. I think 2nd was a huge over achievement last season. With our squad anything between 4th and 6th is about par.
Spurs pool and cuty have better squads and a much better 11.

9.) 14 Dec 2018 22:53:26
or the best part of 170 mill spent on poundland pogba and 2o cent lukaka god we had are pants pulled down.

10.) 15 Dec 2018 01:59:46
Eh? Makes zero sense.

11.) 15 Dec 2018 09:54:22
Or you could argue that second place is the level we would expect to be at with nearly a new team of signings and umpteen millions spent, and that for some reason we've regressed this season.



06 Oct 2017 09:19:13
Any truth in Utd looking at Jack Harrison. Is this just paper talk?

A question for ED002. Can you explain why United are reluctant to allow DDg, Lukaku and Pogba leave.
Is it to with the club losing their appeal to prospective new signings.

Or is it to do with marketability of those players etc and whether or not they affect the sponsership deals that they have.

Maybe it's a mixture if both?

I am I opening a can of worms if you answer this question?

Thanks in advance.

Mad Hatter

{Ed002's Note - They will be open to selling at the right price if they can get replacements that they want - that is what the typical drivers are.}

Commercially viable for Woodward as it would open the club to new drug sponsorships ;)

He'll be "hands' on type of manager.

4.) 05 Jun 2019 13:40:27
No way do we want or need him sniffing around our club.

5.) 05 Jun 2019 19:58:28
He could help with getting our transfer targets over the line. I believe Mr Maradonna admitted he is not whiter than white!, He Nose our targets and has been seen sniffing around the Columbian Head-QUARTERS in the Portuguese city of Lisbon. He has promised if hired to leave no stones unturned and sneeze every ounce of POWdER he has into securing our top 2 targets in Snorting lipsnumb.

Not football related, as an ex steel worker my heart goes out to all those affected.

My home town of Scunthorpe will be badly affected, it will be a ghost town after this.
The silence from the local Conservative leaders of Nth Lincs Council has been deafening only to be broken today with a comment from the council leader, "I'm sure a lot of business would like a little extra government finance" - They don't care.

4.) 23 May 2019 10:13:22
Haven't posted in a long time, but I work at the steel works in Scunthorpe so thanks guys. From the meetings we've had so far I think we're hopeful a buyer can be found. Like Herbie said this area will be ruined if it shuts.

5.) 23 May 2019 11:23:58
Frankly Labour started the rot even before the Tories got. They never backed the Steel Industry properly either (nationalising it decreased its competitiveness and led to bad working practices) and the Unions have not helped with their backwards looking views that makes them believe that an industry is entitled to contracts just because it is British and ignoring the fact that demanding increasingky better wages whilst output declines is a recipe for disaster. It's a hugely competitive world and streamlined and efficient working practices are a necessity. Just look at what's happened to our high streets. On line trading has decimated them. Frankly all the major political parties in this country are a waste of time. just look at the mess they have got us into with Brexit. The real tragedy is that ordinary working people lose their jobs and often through no fault of their own. Meantime prima donna footballers (including some at Utd) seem oblivious to the world around them and often forget their own roots from humble beginnings. Look at photographs from decades ago and see how football was a real escape for those of us with real jobs and real worries. Compare it to today and the disconnect between footballers clubs and their fans is easily seen. It's shameful. I really hope that British Steel is saved for all the people in the area.

Kalvin Philips of Leeds looks very good. He would definitely be a good buy.

the young lad clarke looks a very good player to.



11 May 2019 07:39:10
I came across this earlier, I thought I'd share it.

Buy young players - "No we need experienced players"

Buy older/ experienced players - "No, we need fresh blood not some finished players"

Expensive (£100m+) signing - "Don't want these overpaid mercenaries"

Make a cheap signing like James (who can be more talented) - "How can you trust some garbage championship player! "

Modern football for you. Here people who barely can manage their own homes will tell you about running a £3 billion club.

Good Shot. Mad Hatter.

3.) 11 May 2019 10:15:21
Very true MH. I just read on the other page that we gamble with transfers.

Yet we’ve mostly signed established players for high fees with links to rival clubs, for the past 5 years.

It’s amazing how polarised some perspectives are, but it’s also the reason sites like this exist.

4.) 11 May 2019 10:31:12
So so true unfortunately. I said something similar the other day, although in my own expansive half a page sort of way. This sums it up a little more succinctly.

I think our fans have allowed the disappointment of our season and our current predicament to affect how they view everything connected to the club. We had nearly three years of a manager who would publicly constantly find fault with our club, he helped foster a negative atmosphere around the club, which it appears we are now struggling to escape from.

Ultimately it is down to the individual, no amount of negative thoughts or opinions will change a damn thing. Likewise no amount of positive thoughts or opinions will change how the club is run either. However, one train of thought will make you happier. If you want to be happy then work on trying to focus your thoughts on the positives. Because your negative miserable attitude will only drag you deeper into that black hole.

I am more than aware that hiring Ole could blow up in our faces. The three previous managers have proven that there is no guarantees.

However, Ole is one of us, he loves the club like we do, he talks about the club in a positive manner, there is a good chance we will clear the decks and bring in players better suited, there is already talk about a change in transfer policy, we have some fantastic young talents just waiting for a chance to prove themselves.

We are at a new beginning, and we have so much we can be positive about. If we choose to be. Of course it could just be another false dawn. But negativity never accomplished anything. Do you hear Pep or Klopp being negative? Or Pochettino? Or any successful person in any field? No, because it holds you back.

5.) 11 May 2019 10:58:42
Good post mad hatter.

Signings like James excite me. Nice for us to be doing that kind of business. I hope he is a success.

Jones a d Smalling have more than enough chances. Its beggars belief that they are still here.
As for Rojo, we've got Woodward to lame for tieing him down to a new contract on big wages.
