Any truth in Utd looking at Jack Harrison. Is this just paper talk?

ED002 do you know if Utd are in talks with PSG over a move for Aurier?

Thanks.

Mad Hatter

{Ed002's Note - I have explained there is interest.}


1.) 01 Aug 2017 10:55:05
Cheers.


2.) 01 Aug 2017 11:41:22
Ed2 would his previous visa problems still be an issue for any potential transfer.

{Ed002's Note - RTFP.}


3.) 01 Aug 2017 12:21:05
Just a heads up but ed002 has covered this on the European page.


4.) 01 Aug 2017 12:11:51
Swear i've seen this been asked like 5 times now :D.


5.) 01 Aug 2017 16:05:12
I tried on the European pages but found stuff from a couple of years ago.

{Ed004's Note - He is now Manutd first choice option after missing out on Semedo}


6.) 01 Aug 2017 17:18:31
It's on European page about 3/ 4 posts down.


7.) 01 Aug 2017 20:32:10
Cheers ED004. Discount Dave think I need a trip to spec savers lol.


8.) 02 Aug 2017 19:48:53
The full back I'd have liked was Mateo De Sciglio. I think Juve got a bargain there at 12 mill.


 

 

21 Jul 2017 19:50:00
ED002 are Man Utd looking at any buying another forward? .
Before hand you said Lukaku and Morata and Greizman were options. Lukaku has been signed, Morata will move to Chelsea and for now, Griezmann will stay at Athletico. Do you feel Mourinho will be happy with his attacking options for the forthcoming season?

Cheers.

Mad Hatter

{Ed002's Note - He may take the option of signing ZI again.}


1.) 21 Jul 2017 21:19:59
I think with the available options I say why not. i mean he saved our season, is a massive influence (in a positive way) on our team and can change a game in a heartbeat.


2.) 22 Jul 2017 00:24:58
Cheers ED002.


3.) 22 Jul 2017 11:57:37
I will be pissed if mourinho resigns ibra, we need to move forward and not backwards.

{Ed002's Note - I would agree.}


4.) 22 Jul 2017 12:29:12
Go for neymar if he really wants to leave Barca.


5.) 22 Jul 2017 12:44:28
Where would ibra fit in? Build for the future imo.

{Ed004's Note - I would wait for Griezmann in January and activate his clause tbh forget Perisic and address right back, maybe left back and the defensive midfield position}


6.) 22 Jul 2017 13:51:55
I think Ibra would only be signed if we had an injury crisis, maybe Jose is keeping his options open.


7.) 22 Jul 2017 16:03:51
In my opinion signing Zlatan short term won't be such a bad thing. We have too many games in the season to play with only Lukaku. This saves us the 50m odd which we would have to shell out to buy a decent striking option. Zlatan still has that effect in the dressing room. We would almost certainly go for Griezmann in the summer if not January.

Now before anyone points out Rashford and Martial, my opinion on them is same and hasn't changed yet. They aren't ready to lead the line for United just yet. Big games needs big players and they don't come any bigger than Zlatan.


8.) 22 Jul 2017 15:52:06
004, isn't it the case that AG's clause can only be activated by Spanish or Portuguese clubs?

{Ed004's Note - I'm not 100% sure but think we can activate them}


9.) 22 Jul 2017 16:15:10
Will Zlatan expect to be a first team player?
If Rashford, Martial and Lukaku etc are working really well together, where would he fit in?
It's all ifs and buts. His wages would be a lot as well.

{Ed004's Note - With Zlatans ego I'm sure he will want to be a starter. Hopefully, Rashford (right side), Lukaku and Martial form a really solid front 3 and we don't have to resort to signing Zlatan}


10.) 22 Jul 2017 18:41:37
Rashford and Martial aren't ready to lead the line if Lukaku spends any significant time out. If we don't sign Ibra we will end up signing another striker, who will be younger and block Rashford for years to come.

Ibra will give us cover without blocking Rashford for years.


11.) 22 Jul 2017 22:12:45
Martial and Rashford will only be ready if they give are given chances to rotate with Lukaku. I'm happy with our striker options with those 3, more concerned with a lack of quality wide players and a fit left back.


12.) 23 Jul 2017 01:50:00
I don't think martial will be a united player this time next year. I hope I'm wrong i would like to see him fulfil his potential here but i don't see him and Jose being along.


13.) 23 Jul 2017 12:01:19
I think you're right Ken. Jose doesn't have it in him to take Martial to the next level. He will probably just sign a player at his peak from another team.


14.) 23 Jul 2017 12:32:50
I don't think it falls with jose MAZE but i'm not surprised that u leave martials shortfalls at jose's feet.


15.) 23 Jul 2017 13:59:48
Not sure ken exactly said that maze. Maybe he can elaborate.


16.) 23 Jul 2017 14:39:22
Angel jose and martial are polar opposites same with shaw. Jose by his own admission finds it very difficult to manage this type of personality.
I think martial can be a good player but imo he is in the right place at the wring time.
He is probsbly going to be 3rd choice for his favoured 2 positions this season. So imo it does not bode well for him i'd rather invest what we couls sell him for elsewhere. I always said the same about adnan januzai i'm not conviced by martial and i think he massively over achieved in his 1st season at OT.


17.) 23 Jul 2017 15:36:54
It's possible Ken. It really is truly down to martial.

The reason adnan failed was because of his attitude not because of his talent.

I still believe there is something more to martial than adnan. That is only a hope as I believe he has shown his ability to work harder.

I still hope he kicks on. one things for sure. We will know come next season what type of person he is. The talent is there.


18.) 23 Jul 2017 16:32:23
I agree angel that he appears to have more about him than adnan i just don't think jose and martial are a good fit.


19.) 24 Jul 2017 17:18:14
I think Martial is one of the most talented and exciting forward players around . It would be a crying shame if he ends up elsewhere .
It might be a help if Jose stopped constantly singling him out in public . Of course if Jose had bought him for big money I'm sure his treatment would be different.


20.) 27 Jul 2017 08:20:32
Love to see use play 442 with lukaku and ZI up top with proper wingers and pogba and herrera holding . Be class against some one like Brighton at home to try out . Obv wouldn't play it in big games.


 

 

13 Jun 2017 14:05:43
Apparently we have ended interest in Fabinho and have decided to focus on Matic. Hopefully this isn't true.

Mad Hatter

1.) 13 Jun 2017 14:27:09
Would take Matic any day of the week: has been immense in the past; I even think he was nicknamed " Spider" for appearing to have extra legs, indicative of being a combative ball-winner.


2.) 13 Jun 2017 14:30:02
If this is true, hats off Ed002, you mentioned this on your Sharkopod. Either that or someone heard the Sharkopod and ripped Matic off there. But, Matic could easily be the surprise Jose mentioned.


3.) 13 Jun 2017 14:35:38
I don't know enough about Fabinho to judge him but I do think Matic would improve us. he fits the tall and strong physique typically associated with a Jose player.


4.) 13 Jun 2017 14:56:53
I'd like to see Dier in the roll personally.


5.) 13 Jun 2017 15:01:30
Matic is a very good defensive mid, and is proven in the EPL. Haven't seen a huge amount of Fabinho, but I trust Ed001 when he says that Fab is a lazy bugger who takes an age to back into position after getting forward.


6.) 13 Jun 2017 15:02:28
We wanted Matic last summer but Chelsea wouldn't sell. Can't see that changing.


7.) 13 Jun 2017 15:17:33
On white or whole wheat Rewz?


8.) 13 Jun 2017 15:42:13
If they are going for Bakayoko and Verratti I can see them letting Matic go.


9.) 13 Jun 2017 16:22:41
For what's it worth I'd like to see us sign a ball playing midfielder or deep lying play maker. Somebody who can dictate the play, get on the ball and play incisive forward passes from deep positions into midfield and the front men. An intelligent player to sit in front of the back four, always be available for the ball, link the play, keep possession but is able to play forward incisive balls rather than playing sideways all the time, be the quarterback of our team so to speak. I think that's the type of midfielder we should be targeting. We've already got a combative ball winning midfielder in Herrera. He needs to be released forward to press and win the ball higher up the pitch and we need somebody that can feed Pogba the ball further forward where he can be more creative. Just my opinion and the way I see things and I'm not sure Matic fits the bill?


10.) 13 Jun 2017 16:25:54
Matic looked a beast when he first returned to Chelsea but he went well off the boil 2 season ago and he was fairly quiet last season. Now he's linked with us he's world class 😂

No doubt he'd improve our midfield but would he improve it enough to challenge for the PL?


11.) 13 Jun 2017 16:26:37
Danny, I think white as it's more calorific and would add more energy to the midfield.


12.) 13 Jun 2017 16:44:34
Likely its ripped off from the sharkopod.
Also doubt very much if we'd sign matic.


13.) 13 Jun 2017 18:29:45
Absolute joke if we sign Matic and Chelsea sign Bakayoko/ Verratti.

Reminds me of us taking Schweiny whilst Bayern sign Vidal.

If this happens we are a shambles. We need to be signing the best, not rejects. Matic is a good player, but Chelsea would improve more than we will by this deal. We need to be closing the gap, not widening it.


14.) 13 Jun 2017 18:53:27
We're linked to a player who's won 2 PL titles in the past 3 seasons and he's labelled a Chelsea cast off.
Chelsea are linked with Bakayoko who's had 1 decent season and people are getting there knickers in a twist.
How about looking at from a different angle, that we would be poaching a very good player from a rival.
I personally would love to see us sign Fabinho but again, he's only had one decent season in France as a DM.
I definitely wouldn't turn my nose up at signing Matic.


15.) 13 Jun 2017 19:07:04
I really hope we are in for Toni Kroos as Ed002 has alluded to.


16.) 13 Jun 2017 19:21:04
Matic is a very good player. An expert in his role. A players player. Does his job and allows others to theirs.
Fabhino was my no1 target. A tecnically gifted player and a superb right back too. Like griezman i'd be disappointed if we don't sign fabhino but matic is a very good option to fulfil that role.
Im still seeing reports of a fabhino deal agreed but he is on holiday so 99.9% of what we read is BS.
Beast i like bakayoko too but think fabhino just shades it for me.
Veratti if allowed to leave will go to Barcelona i'd imagine he doesn't fancy england and if he ever came to england i don't see him living anywhere except London. He is my fav player in many ways. Chelsea are not over flush with cash and won't pay 80m for veratti.
As far as pure dm position goes matic is currently better more experienced and epl proven but he has probably hit his ceiling and i believe fabhino will reach greater heights within a couple of seasons that's why i would sign fabhino.


17.) 13 Jun 2017 19:44:00
if matic is so good why is chelsea making him available? Agree with beast we need better than our opposition to progress not worse.

{Ed002's Note - THey are looking to buy someone they consider an improvement.}


18.) 13 Jun 2017 20:49:50
I'm not sure how finishing a country mile behind Chelsea then buying a player off them who they think can be improved upon helps us close the gap . I'd go for kroos I know he's not a dier or matic type but he's so much better than them. A midfield playmaker in the scholes of later years . A midfield 3 of kroos pogba and Herrera as good as any if coached well.


19.) 13 Jun 2017 21:04:39
I think we need a specialist defensive midfielder who can break up attacks then distribute to the more attack-minded players. It would obviously be a bonus if they are good on the ball and have an eye for a pass but Pogba and Herrera are better employed further upfield, plus fullbacks and wider players.

We know JM likes this kind of player (Makele, Matic etc) so while a Kroos would be a great signing, is he the specialist that the team needs? My ideal signing would be Javi Martinez.


20.) 13 Jun 2017 23:32:48
I think Martinez would be a great signing Wallace.


21.) 14 Jun 2017 10:04:19
Thanks Danny, great minds. 😉.


 

 

06 Jun 2017 17:44:33
Now we're linked with a £49 million bid for Sanchez.
Personally I can't see Arsenal selling him us or any other EPL club unless they receive a silly other. I think he may well end up at Bayern if he leaves.

Mad Hatter

1.) 06 Jun 2017 20:36:34
Smalling plus cash?

{Ed025's Note - if you want sanchez it will be £80m porche, if its sanchez and you give them smalling..its £85m.. :)


2.) 06 Jun 2017 21:21:52
😂 ed.


3.) 06 Jun 2017 22:38:53
Sanchez is in his last contract year with Arsenal which puts the power firmly in the hands of the player. The club will want to avoid the risk of losing him for nothing at the end of next season. Will he accept the reported £300k a week to stay where he is and play Europa League football? Given, no doubt, there are other suitors, is there any chance he will want to play in Manchester? Does he like Mourinho? I can see him leaving the Gunners for maybe £400k per week wages but a transfer fee closer to £50m than £80m.

Is it time to drop Lukaku? Yes it is.
He’s been poor and surely Mourinho has to recognise that. Mkhitaryan hasn’t played due to his poor form.

Mad Hatter

1.) 11 Dec 2017 11:41:30
I think you are right. Maybe bring him on as an impact sub. But whom do you pick if not him? Rashford? Zlatan? Martial?


 

 

10 Dec 2017 13:30:45
We need the 3 points today to close the gap on City. I hope we go for it and don’t Si to back and allow City to attack and dictate the game. Come on United!

Mad Hatter

1.) 10 Dec 2017 15:15:07
Dont care how we win mate as long as we win.

Id take a 1-0 park the bus win over a gret performance with a draw.


 

 

06 Dec 2017 10:04:47
Fantastic from Shaw last night. He showed just how good he really is. Hopefully he gets more chances and it wasn't a case of putting him in the January shopping window.

We certainly need two quality LBs/ LWBs and Young and Shaw could be those two, as they will need to be rotated.

Mad Hatter

1.) 06 Dec 2017 12:10:25
Shaw needs to take it one game at a time and give everything every time he pulls on a red shirt. I’ve been one of his biggest critics, and if Rose is available I’d take him.

Don’t forget he was asleep for Moscow’s goal so whilst a positive start and good match from him, let’s see what happens. Shaw has proved he can’t commit to training at an elite club. Maybe he’s grown up and realised what’s needed. I hope so, but fear it’s a false dawn.


2.) 06 Dec 2017 12:53:55
He was at fault for the goal but that is down to him being rusty. That will will come with game time. Rojo gave a penalty away not too long ago after being out for awhile.


3.) 06 Dec 2017 13:06:11
Rojo throws everything in every game. He’s great and trains well, loves the club and sits in the Utd fans at away matches showing us his commitment. Shaw has done none of this and is in his third year with us. Jose is putting him in the shop window.


 

 

24 Nov 2017 10:41:23
IF Fellaini and co leave on free transfers next summer then it reflects badly on management.

Mourinho knee Fellaini wanted to go, but refused to sell him. It looks very likely that he will leave now.

Herrera, Blind, Young who look likely to leave as well. Darmian will likely be sold.
It does leave us needing a lot of investment again unless Mourinho promotes some youth players. I can see that with McTominay, as Mourinho has said that he is slowly integrating him into the first team.

Tuanzebe certainly needs more game time. He looks very composed on the ball. I had high hopes that we would be Basel and play some youngsters in the final CL game. I think that will be very unlikely now.
We've struggled at LB so why hasn't Mitchell been given a chance as Blind and Darmian offer very little at LB. SHAW IS Shaw. No one knows what is going on there. Attitude problems or Mourinho simply doesn't rate him. I run of games might donhim the world of good and save us a fortune on buying a new LB.

Mad Hatter

 

 

11 Nov 2017 09:38:50
Utd are currently 2nd in the league, yet as fans we aren't entirely happy.
Mourinho's over the top defensive approach to the Liverpool game saw him come under criticism.
The Huddersfield game, perhaps a knock affect of a the previous two games, or just that Huddersfield played their hearts out. Chelsea showed us that with Jones and Smalling in a back three aren't good enough.
Here lies the problem. Jose bought Lindelof who is struggling. Smalling and Jones have been hit and miss. Even Southgate dropped Smalling because he wasn't a ball playing defence that he wanted.
Pogba has been a big miss, there's no doubting that. To lose him when you the rest of the team at your disposal and reshuffle the formation shows that Mourinho lacks confidence in this teams abilities.
Valencia and Young aren't defenders. There converts, somehow Valencia has lost his ability to cross.
As we approach Jose's fourth transfer window, the defence is far from complete. Shaw looks likely to be sold, Darmian, Blind have been ok at LB. Tuanzebe should be given more game time to form a partnership with Bailly. He's composed, great technically and good on the ball. Mitchell played well last season against Palace. I would have thought in the EFL he would have been given a chance. Perhaps the last game in the CL would be a good time to blood some youngsters including him.
We have some very talented youngsters available. The passion, enthusiasm and determination they played with against Palace reminded me of United of old. Entertain and succeed.
The question is- can Mourinho entertain and succeed?
Or will he throw the toys out of the Oran and leave before his 3 years are up?

Mad Hatter

1.) 11 Nov 2017 10:34:34
I think Jones played really well this year.


2.) 11 Nov 2017 11:18:43
I can't remember Jones not playing well to be honest for a very long time. Same as always with injuries, but when fit he has been very good, both on the ball and defensively.

On the flip side Darmian and Blind I can't remember having good games, just like Rojo as a LB they are all hindrances. Offer nothing going forward and go to sleep or are clumsy as hell in equal measure. Blind can't run either, despite being better than the others on the ball.

Somebody needs to be taken to task about the Lindelof deal, we pulled out in January or we didn't do enough to get the deal done - now he makes Prunier look like an astute signing.

It's not good enough to say he isn't ready when he takes a wage, cost millions and was extensively scouted apparently. Very odd, apparently Miki was similar last season, he has hardly pulled up trees either a year later.


3.) 11 Nov 2017 11:36:50
Rojo is better as the left side of a back three, he is not a great left back.

How did Lindelof play for Sweden last night? I see Italy didn’t score.

Players take time to adapt, Vidic, for example, and Beast were you similarly calling for someone to be taken to task at the time of the Veron deal? Or is it just because this is a Jose purchase? I would like to know whether a Lindelof was a number 1,2 or 3 in the pecking order of central defender purchases, but the lad needs time before we judge him.

Miki looks like he can’t get the pace and power of the game in his second season. Still to be seen if he picks it up.


4.) 11 Nov 2017 12:04:42
Yes I agree Rojo is a decent CB, awful LB.

Didn't watch Lindelof last night, weak point Red Man - straw clutching just to argue.

Yes some players need time to adapt, if he needed time why isn't he on loan, why did we pay big money for him after scouting him for ages? You have to go back to Veron to make another weak point.

Vidic and Evra turned out to be two of the best players we have signed, I'll take 1/ 100 odds that Lindelof won't be. I love how people jump to extreme examples to try and make an argument, how about listing the 20 odd players signed in recent years that have not delivered, Schmidfield, Depay, ADM, Falcao for example. I'd wager Lindelof fits more into that category than the extremes of Bebe or Vidic.

Yes it's still to be seen if these players like Miki can lift it, but it's been 15 months now. The world keeps moving, they keep earning and we keep waiting for them to "get it". At the end of the day all the players get our full support when on the pitch, but off it we need to call a spade a spade. Would you be happy with the Lindelof purchase so far Red Man? Rather than what could happen, let's look at what actually has happened please, because that is all we can know for sure.


5.) 11 Nov 2017 13:07:26
I still think lindelof will come good. I've no concrete evidence of that of coyrse but he was scouted over 18 months and was well regarded by many and I've seen him play very well for sweden so let's hope its more a case of vidic than prunier.
For me there are at least half a dozen players in our squad that are miles short of united standard and will never be good enough to help us win the league and the problem is we have needed them to start 20 plus games a season and if we continue to rely on these guys for that amount of games we will not win the league because they will continue to let us down and play at their level which is average.
Our squad is very weak in certain areas its been that way for 4 years under 3 managers. with crap league placing because they are not good enough to start 20 plus games and win enough of them.


6.) 11 Nov 2017 13:17:45
Totally agree Ken - it would be foolish to write off Lindelof so soon, but it has been a truly woeful start to his career with us and I am bewildered by the whole situation.

Averageness permeates through the squad, not sure what's worse the fact that we have a lot of 7/ 10's playing week in week out, or the fact that so many of our fans seem content with this situation.

"Working Progress" keeps being spouted, well it isn't working too well for me and progress is subjective, League Cup and Europa League may be trophies but they were basically ignored 5 years ago when it came to season reviews etc.


7.) 11 Nov 2017 14:05:46
We have made some very poor purchases in recent seasons that looked good at the time but haven't worked out. Depay was dreadful as was ADM, Schweinsteiger and Schneiderlin delivered nothing, Falcao was a risk that didn't work out, and it looks like Shaw will be on his way. I know acidic took a little time to settle in but he never looked as dodgy as Lindelof currently Dora's. God od knows the scouting but that's a lot of money wasted in recent years.

Now let's look at who has moved in recent years (I realise they may not have wanted to come to us) . KDB, Mane, Stones, 3 players who would get straight into our side. So would Walker right now. We have a lot of money but m not sure we have been spending it wisely.


8.) 11 Nov 2017 14:41:37
Lindelof was going to be a great player our new cb all the experts on the site said so .
Seriously who watches Portuguese football or makes a point of watching Sweden .
I asked the same question in the summer as I had only seen him play a couple of times but he looked a bit lightweight and a bit slow .

People question the strength of our squad, well on most match days this lad can't get a place on the bench .

How many players look world beaters playing for other clubs until we buy them?


9.) 11 Nov 2017 14:58:04
I'm not sure we do due diligence. Surely we should have known about Shaw's fitness issues before we signed him? Ed said Depay wasn't ready, and he was spot on. ADM was always a Woodward signing and whilst he is talented it was clear he didn't want to be here. Schweinsteiger was crocked, Schneiderlin has been slid for Southampton so his poor form was a surprise but we have made a lot of mistakes.

Pogba looks like a great signing, Ibra has added something, Bailly hadgreat first year (think he looks slightly dodgy this year) . Miki doesn't look up to the EPL and I'm still not fully convinced by Lukaku.

A few poor purchases and progress slows, a few canny ones and we can fly. Fine lines.


10.) 11 Nov 2017 15:08:31
So if a player doesn't walk straight in the team an produce 10/ 10 performances they should be sold? Thought united fans backed players.


11.) 11 Nov 2017 15:30:10
Fair assessment AJH our recruitment has been questionable recently, having said that I think the majority of Jose's signing's have been very good. I really like Pogba, Matic and Bailly and no doubt Ibra made a big impact last season. I think the jury's is still out on Miki and Lindelof is well down the pecking order at the moment.


12.) 11 Nov 2017 15:50:59
You don't need 11 world Class players to have a world Class team .
People say we need a top right sided player, is Miki not one? 23 goals in his last season for Dortmund playing on the Right .
Talented lad this boy creative player only been at the club one season .

We payed 90 mil for a striker 100 mill for pogba add matic in there Herrera who people where raving about last season .
Bailly Jones probably the best GK in the world Ddg .
Are rash and martial not top young talents, is sterling really a step up from these 2 .
Was Mata not Chelsea player of the league winning CL?
Lindelof was a great signing stones an awful player just a couple of month ago .

Fellaini is a great example how many people wanted him dropped sold, not good enough . Did Jose rate him tho .

Talent is there we are 2nd in the league and not playing well?


13.) 11 Nov 2017 15:54:49
Danny
The ed said bailly was very much a club signing Jose didn't have a big say in it.
Jose was a big fan of pogba but I'm sure the club and the money men where just as keen .

Our signings, good and bad are very much a joint effort down to more than just one person .

Agree with that jred BUT whos resposible for missed signings. It was pretty clear jose wanted peresic but someone put a stop to it. There we comments made that he's not marketable enough for us. If that's true then someone is to blame for it amf its not jose.

Ridiculous to be giving up on Lindelof already. He came in and looked a bit too keen and anxious in preseason (silly foul for penalty) and Jose held him back and let him settle. Good decision if you ask me.

He then worked his way into the match squad and was brought on unexpectedly as a sub for a Jones injury and again made a silly mistake 2 mins into the game that cost us dear.

Again Jose has held him back from the spot light and has him working his way back.

The lad is talented and I think he will be a very good player for us. He does need to settle and grow into a club the size of Man Utd.

Declaring him a disaster is hardly what the lad needs so early into his utd career. Give him at least 12 months to settle before you decide he is useless and an embarrassing signing that the scouts should be ashamed of.

Nobody is giving up on Lindelof, we are just saying it's not exactly been an astute signing so far - has it been?

Like the Zaha signing, that I tend to forget about.

Depay I could tell from the World Cup he was out of his depth. 99% of fans on here wouldn't hear it though.

There is loyalty, then there is blind loyalty.

Some Players work out straight away, some need time. I recall Rio, the worlds best defender at the time, needed a little time to adjust to how we played, how SAF wanted him to play and he had been playing in the league. Lindelof played in Portugal, not as strong or quick a league, however is a Swedish international who plays regularly. i for one will not prematurely judge him. In fact, how on earth can Lindelof be judged as “not exactly an astute signing”. The prices being banded about in summer made Lindelof relatively reasonably priced and time will tell if he is astute.

I was one who warned that Depay would take time to settle and shouldn’t expect as much as some people on here were, seems to be doing well now and I seem to recall we added a buy back clause.

This is another Beast set of undermining effort set of posts, the manager got it wrong again about Lindelof. Well having read what Woodward allegedly told Klopp about Utd being like Disney I suspect the corporate hand is in most things including transfers. I suspect there is a drive to find players who may increase in value as part of the recruitment to please the owners, after all the Ronaldo sale likely made the Accountants very excited, so I won't just be about the manager and there is a belief the club didn’t bring in the player wanted, that is what we should be questioning.

Far too early to judge Lindelof, although admittedly he hasn't gotten off to a great start. The thing is with Lindelof is he cannot do any worse than he has done so far, so we will inevitably see a vast improvement even if he isn't up to our standard. Jose did say he expects a long Bailly and Lindelof partnership so he must see something in him. He is very much a signing for next season like Jose also said. I think he needs games though and we should be using him when we can, however if you were Blind, Smalling whoever and Lindelof was playing ahead of you, you'd be pretty p! ssed off.

A car salesman a few months ago Claire store be one of Roses best mates whilst growing up, he did have pictures of the two of them playing golf at Forest pines on his phone.
He said tha Rose wanted to move to OT but Spurs were predictably playing hard ball. Make of it what you want but he s either a crazy stalker or telling the truth lol.

If there was booing it’s fickle of the fans to do so. Lukaku is at a new club and has scored a fair few goals already. He’s still improving as a player. He’s been here only a few months. Against Spurs he hit the post and set up Martial. Whilst playing up top is about scoring goals, you also have to be good off the ball, make those penetrating runs. Drag defenders out of position. Against Liverpool he didn’t really do that, but neither did the rest of the team.

I'd rather have Sanchez than Bale. I think Arsenal would rather sell to us than City. Maybe offer then £60-£70. Great player.

He was at fault for the goal but that is down to him being rusty. That will will come with game time. Rojo gave a penalty away not too long ago after being out for awhile.

Lingard is 24/ 25. He needs to be more consistent. Granted, he was a late bloomer in today’s football after numerous loans away.
