Well McNair just got his own back. Remind me of his OG if we lose out by a goal on goal difference again.


1.) 14 Aug 2016 05:50:27
Could have happened to anyone mate.
Besides city looked very timid. If you need a penalty and own goal to win against sunderland, they are going to be in for a very difficult season.
Correct me if I'm wrong but they looked a lot like van gaals utd of December. Too many square passes and a frustrated striker.

2.) 14 Aug 2016 08:58:17
Riddlet it's difficult to make assumptions after 1 game. It's rare any team gets going properly until a few games in. Probably best to start judging teams come October. Plus if United had won in that fashion you'd probably be saying "we get 3 points that's the main thing".

3.) 14 Aug 2016 12:22:11
Also remember they have Gundogan and sane to come in. But yeah, Pep will encounter similar problems to LVG with his possession football. Knowing the media in this country I'm sure he won't get half the stick he would if he was the United manager.

4.) 14 Aug 2016 17:23:45
Gotta love the haters, . Shows how much people fear us.

5.) 14 Aug 2016 22:27:20
How the hell did Aguero get MOTM on dream team?

Could you imagine Utd V City with LVG still our manager, harrowing stuff?!

6.) 15 Aug 2016 11:51:29
I haven't been too disappointed by Valencia's performances so far this season. Whether he stays or goes (Darmian), I would be quite happy for Valencia to remain RB. He isn't the greatest player, but he gets up and down, wins tackles, and provides assists from some of the crosses he has put in already.



09 Jun 2016 15:55:25
Ed002 has said on European pages that we are interested in Embolo along with many other clubs but that joining us would not be good for him. I assume the step up from the Swiss league would be too big at this time as it has been for Depay from the Dutch league. Definitely one to watch for the future though.

Hope we get Berardi or Bernardo Silva for RF.


1.) 09 Jun 2016 16:15:28
Swiss newspaper 20min are saying we are leading the chase and could be signing in the next few days.



23 May 2016 19:42:12
Just seen Woy Hodgson getting into a limo with a guy that looked a lot like Eddie Woodward and I swear the other guy was Robbie Savage, all with United scarves and big cheesy grins.


1.) 24 May 2016 00:36:28
New manager and assistant?

2.) 24 May 2016 13:03:27
Replying to your own rumour?

{Ed023's Note - He probably forgot to add the "punch line" to the original post, well it's what I'd like to think anyway}

3.) 24 May 2016 15:13:07
He must be JMB with another new name :)

4.) 24 May 2016 19:25:44
Lol Betty if I was JMB I would at least switch accounts before answering myself. Think it was just very late when I sent the op.

5.) 25 May 2016 12:41:59
It was also way too funny to be JMB.




21 May 2016 21:40:03
Interesting to see who will be assistant manager next season. According to the media Giggs won't work with Jose but at the same time I doubt Jose is in a position to demand his own backroom staff if the board want to keep the ones we already have.

Hope Jose is backed in the market and gets his targets in early.


1.) 22 May 2016 01:55:52
Jose will 100% be able to have his own backroom staff!

2.) 22 May 2016 08:08:36
I would love to see scholes in a coaching role. Maybe not a big influence on Sunday but on the training pitch he'd be an incredible asset.

3.) 22 May 2016 08:26:17
Scholes has been offered roles several times.

4.) 22 May 2016 12:59:26
I wonder whether a certain Drobga would come in to work with Jose. Could be decent for Rashford and Martial. He was rumoured to come on board with Jose at Chelsea at one point wasn't he?

5.) 22 May 2016 08:06:12
Why? United know Jose is desperate for the job, Jose knows we know. United, foolishly, seem to want Giggs to stay and hold 3 of the 4 aces in negotiations. Perhaps that is why Mendes leaked the story to strengthen their position and put pressure on United.

I hope Jose joins and Giggs leaves, as for the rest of the backroom staff I don't know how good the current incumbents are or who Jose would want. Do think its important though that if we sign Jose that we back him fully. The last thing we need is people in the club trying to undermine him.



20 May 2016 20:19:25
According to Ed002 on the European Soccer site, Real intend on signing Dave the Save this summer.


1.) 20 May 2016 21:03:32
Hopefully but doubtfully de gea intends to stay.

2.) 20 May 2016 22:10:42
I had to ask the question. IMO the lure If RM and CL football might be too much for DDG. Plus he's more likely to remains Spain's number 1.

3.) 21 May 2016 05:40:24
If he does decide to leave then imo we should ask for varane plus cash in exchange.
Forster to replace him for me. He'll hit the ground running, won't need time like de gea did initially to adapt to the pl.

4.) 21 May 2016 06:14:41
I can't see Forster beinganywhere near good enough, his footwork is that of a stumbling elephant as is his movement in general, for such a big keeper he's bang average at set pieces, i'd compare him to a slightly better mignolet. the only keeper playing in the prem who might be available who imo is good enough is schmeichel. e.

5.) 21 May 2016 07:58:31
Not a fan of Forster tbh, I think Lloris is signing a new deal at Spurs from what I've read, Butland signed new deal, not really up on my keepers worldwide but we was once linked with Handanovic so maybe he still on the radar, that's the think with this up in the air, fans demanding change its set us back at least one transfer window.

6.) 21 May 2016 06:45:26
I want us to keep De Gea but if he's going I agree with Riddle that we should try to get Varane in exchange. Wouldn't want Forster, think Bernd Leno or Perrin would be better.

7.) 21 May 2016 12:56:12
Steve Mandana is out of contract this summer, I'd rather have him than Forster!

8.) 21 May 2016 20:39:36
time to mess up the fax machine lads.

9.) 22 May 2016 20:47:20
Jordan Pickfords name has been thrown around with a move Manchester United?

Just a rumour though eh?

Assessment of the squad


DDG demanding too high a wage, sell while we can

Romero good enough to be first choice for a season or 2

Henderson good enough for back up/ cup matches, maybe he will prove himself to be our first choice in the long term


Shaw has played well when fit this season

Young needs to leave

Competition needed for Shaw. Tierney, a united fan, worth a shout


Dalot has potential, good going forwards needs to improve defensively

Valencia leaving

A seasoned pro needed whilst Dalot develops. Wan Bissaka seems popular but think he might block Dalot progression. Meunier (sp) at 27 seems a better fit


Lindelof has progressed well

Rojo, Smalling, Jones, TFM not good enough let them go

Tuanzebe deserves a chance in the squad

Bailey started well, struggled this season, give him a chance to prove himself next season as back up CB

Need an experienced head. Alderwield for 25m seems the obvious choice so long as wage demands are reasonable

Also need 1 more in the squad. Promote the best youth prospect or bring in Ruben Dias or Milenkovic


Matic can do a job but past his best. given the overhaul needed keep him for 1 more season

Bring in Neves from Wolves, think I favour him over Rice


Pogba needs to go whilst we can sell him, if he runs his contract down, again, we will have to pay him crazy money or lose him for nothing, again

Herrera going

Fred back up

Mctominay squad player, maybe between now and the end of the season he claims a starting position

Pereira back up

Saul in to replace Pogba

Milenkovic savic to replace Herrera, not had a great season so maybe his price will be more reasonable

Promote Garner to gain experience in cup matches


Martial if we could get decent money for him I'd let him go. Has the talent but not the work rate

Sanchez think we are stuck with him on crazy wages, use as back up

Replace Martial with Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham


Mata going

Lingard seems to have struggled this season, use as back up

Sancho from Dortmund, we will get fleeced but he has talent

Promote Chong to use in cup games


Rashford United through and through, great work rate needs to really work on his finishing to become top class, also needs talking to about his wage demands not unreplaceable

Lukaku good to have a big man as a different option upfront if a good offer came in for him I'd let him go and replace him with a cheaper option on lower wages who is happy to not be first choice

Promote Greenwood

Is there a question mark over our coaching? When did we last sign a player and improve them?


1.) 18 Apr 2019 00:19:49
Would love us to sign KT and think he would be better than Shaw in no time. Stretch to call him a Utd fan though, he is categorically a Celtic fan and that would make it difficult to get him.

2.) 18 Apr 2019 07:25:40
Interesting I agree with all of that except Bailly, he’s part of the problem in the dressing room imo.

The difficulty is this isn’t footy manager so we can’t just choose who comes and goes, but we definitely need some fresh ideas and to rid the poisonous and lazy attitude from the club.

Meunier is a great shout we need that experience, along with someone like Toby, two players there who will instantly improve our solidity while Tuanzebe and Dalot develop, and I think Dalot will make it. He works hard and has good attributes to his game. I’m not a fan of short term fixes but our defence is the exception. It needs improving right now, not in three years.

3.) 18 Apr 2019 08:07:30
Agreed with all
But, although I would also sell martial, if we could get another talented out and out LW, if it was Ryan sessegnon I'd be fuming. That would show what a joke we are.
I'd get rid of martial and lukaku. Go for ziyech and son if we popped spurs for champions league. Offer them martial if needs be.

4.) 18 Apr 2019 09:54:46
That's 8 new players which isn't going to happen way quickly. However this is the sort of analysis Ole needs to do and Woody needs to execute.

5.) 18 Apr 2019 12:39:04
It ain't that easy to sell on football manager now. But agree with that. I'd sell Bailly as well. Maybe stagger it all over two seasons.



13 Dec 2017 08:10:22
What one January signing do you think would most improve our starting 11?

I'd go with Verratti SMS Goretzka Sandro in that order although I'd love us to sign Dybala I think we have enough depth in his position.


1.) 13 Dec 2017 09:59:56
SMS and he's availzble albeit at a ridiculous price.

2.) 13 Dec 2017 11:00:15
Any idea what this ridiculous price could be?

3.) 13 Dec 2017 13:48:24
If rumours are to be believed somewhere around £90m

4.) 13 Dec 2017 18:30:40
The ed said they where talking about a few similar to pogba in the summer .
That was before he signed a new contract and pay bought neymar and the market changed .

5.) 14 Dec 2017 00:24:53
Love to see Dybala but I think a winger is urgent, so perisic.



19 May 2017 16:35:12
Down the page Tony gave Jose a B- for his job performance. I find that to be very generous. Now I'm not saying he should be replaced but it would be nice if he swallowed his pride and admitted that he hasn't been good enough this season. He's quick enough to criticise others. he should hold himself to the same standards.

He took a top 6 squad, spent £150m+, including smashing the transfer record and achieved. top 6.

Performances were largely unentertaining, few players are performing better than last season (Herrera, Fellaini) some players have intact regressed (Smalling, Shaw, Martial)

IF we win our first ever Europa league its hardly something to shout about. the reason we haven't won it before now is because we have consistently too good to even be in the competition.

Yes I'll be happy if we win it and yes I'm happy we won the league cup but they are not the premier competitions. Let's be honest if other clubs were bragging about winning either of those in Sir Alex's time we would have laughed at them.


1.) 19 May 2017 16:50:14
Luke Shaw played 5 games last season. Wouldn't say he's regressed because of Jose.

I'd give Mourinho a C+ if we win Europa personally. Like you're saying, Europa and League cup isn't what we wanted at the start but i'd rather have 2 trophies and Champions league than be City or Liverpool.

2.) 19 May 2017 17:19:20
I'm with harry, it's been a mediocre season for me. We need to be challenging for the league title, but I will write this off for Jose as I believe you will always need 2 years minimum to prove your worth at a club our size.

I'm expecting next year to be a title challenge and hopefully a good champions league run (if we win Wednesday) .

However, I'd rather be in Spurs' position right now than ours.

3.) 19 May 2017 17:27:19
He's currently on a D for me, but if we win the Europa League it's a B. The EL final really is that important.

I obviously do care about what we are like to watch but when all is said and done, the history books won't say that we played appaulingly, it will say we won the League Cup and Europa League, and qualified for the Champions League.

I still refuse to believe any United fan would've turned their nose up at that if they were asked last August.

4.) 19 May 2017 19:07:15
B+ if we win Europa final, for me. Still A-, A and A+ to go to improve to be where we want to be. Let's win the game and see what summer brings, maybe he'll be an A in 12 months.

5.) 20 May 2017 06:22:11
Things are getting steamy with Wazza giving Jose the D. Lol.



11 May 2017 22:42:18
What is the point of Jose's negativity in interviews. Fifa/ Uefa aren't going to give us the Europa trophy or a guaranteed UCL place because they feel sorry for us.

With the players and resources we have we can hardly play the "we are underdogs because we r tired card. "

All it achieves is to steal the players confidence and belief and prepare the fans in case we lose.

Not the correct attitude for a united manager. hate to say it but Jose sounds a lot like Moyes did, defeatist.


1.) 11 May 2017 23:25:17
If Moyes had won us trophies and got us to European finals I would agree with you.



05 May 2017 18:48:08
Assuming we reach Europa final, who plays in goal. Harsh to not start Romero, he's done well in the games he's played but if I was DDG I'd be upset if I wasn't picked to play in the final

I dare say if DDG doesn't start it could be a sign he is leaving in the summer.


{Ed004's Note - I would have to go De Gea.}

1.) 05 May 2017 19:29:29
Romero as De Gea is leaving anyway.

2.) 05 May 2017 20:18:33
I hate it when the back up plays every round only for the main man to start in the final. Romero for me, he deserves his moment in the sun.

{Ed025's Note - im an advocate of always play your best side AJH, if romero made a howler and lost you a CL spot you may think the same mate..

3.) 05 May 2017 20:19:08
Very good question!

Head says DDG, heart and he deserves it really says Romero.

4.) 05 May 2017 21:34:52
DDG could also throw a howler, Romero for me, helped us get this far.

5.) 05 May 2017 23:20:04
I like Romero but this is simple for me. European cup final you play your strongest possible side. And DDG is far better than Romero. So he should play.

6.) 05 May 2017 23:48:23
If Dave wants to leave I wouldn't reward that lack of commitment.

7.) 06 May 2017 01:18:04
Romero all the way. Semper Fi.

8.) 06 May 2017 01:41:53
Play your best team would be my instinctive reaction. But there are always circumstances and dynamics wee are unaware of.
Romero has played very well to be fair to him.
It's hard to know what Jose will do but it would be ddg for me.

9.) 06 May 2017 06:06:00
If it is known already that DDG is leaving then definitely Romero. Merit side think still Romero. If decision of leaving not firm then still Romero and DDG plays striker. 😂😂.

10.) 05 May 2017 21:01:47
Ed, if that happens then so be it. Integrity, loyalty, these are things that are important to me, unfortunately football has forgotten them. If Romero plays and gets us to the final then he deserves to play in the final. If he cocks up, then he cocks up. When I lay my head down at night I sleep well because I know I have been righteous today, how many in football can say that? Not many.

{Ed025's Note - i respect that AJH, we all have different views on who we would pick in our teams and to be fair to romero he has not done much wrong, but the europa is massive now for united as it looks the only way into the CL so maybe jose will pick his best keeper who is of course de may not be ethical and its a tough one to call so it will be interesting to see if your manager has the same views as you mate..

11.) 06 May 2017 06:26:30
DDG 100% - those of you saying 'Romero' are living is some kind of Bizzarro world on this issue if you ask me.

All season the Europa League has been seen as some back door into the CL. Yet you are prepared to play the most crucial game with a weaker keeper, just because it might be unfair on Romero?

Romero still picks up a wage and win bonus, is the number 2 goalkeeper and frankly not one of us would be too bothered if he left in summer. Yet you would play him in nets for the THE most important game of the past 2-3 years easily?

If Jose has been smoking whatever it is you guys have been then God help us, because it's needlessly disadvantaging us playing Romero. You play your strongest team in a vital cup final, this is even more important than a normal cup final as well, as it means advancement if we win, not start again like a normal cup final!

{Ed025's Note - hard to argue with that beast..

12.) 06 May 2017 07:54:20
It will depend on the mental state of both. If DDG has his head in Madrid or is not focussed then its going to affect the decision. Romero is supposedly off to Milan but perhaps he has the approval to go. The best judge is the manager who works with them and I trust he will get it right. If they are both equally focussed then it has to be the best team and that is DDG. Assuming we get there, I don't like assuming and we have a big game on Thursday before we have any decision to even think about.

{Ed025's Note - your right red man..

13.) 06 May 2017 08:18:31
Don't say this often beast but fully agree with you.

14.) 06 May 2017 08:37:39
My heart says romero because he has played all the away along and to be honest not made many mistakes.

But my head says de gea. He is our no.1 and arguably the world's best. If we go into the final I want the strongest possible starting lineup.

15.) 06 May 2017 09:34:10
Huh? Red man? Romero is off to Milan?
If that is the case then DDG should be the one then.

16.) 06 May 2017 10:08:09

I posted a rumour Romero bought a house in Milan last week and it was followed up in the press with rumours he is going to Inter. Who knows but I wouldn't base the decision on summer transfers just mental focus and ability.

17.) 06 May 2017 10:35:53
Let's win the semi-final first eh fellas?

IBRA has been adequate at best given the wages he was on. Yes he scored a lot of goals but then he played a lot of games and was given a lot of chances.

Ed002 in what way was it a major mistake and do the club management acknowledge that it was a mistake?

CSM, I think the eds said before that release clauses for Spanish based players are only relevant if the buying club is based in Spain. We could offer £200m and Atletico could still say no.

Who do you think would make a good leader/ captain, a player we have or a realistic transfer target?
I entirely agree we need at least one, preferably several but there seems to be a lack of them. We used to have them all over the pitch Schmeichel, VDS, Bruce, Pallister, Ferdinand, Vidic, Irwin, Evra, G. Nev, Ince, Keane, Giggs, Beckham, Cantona, Hughes. Are modern footballers just lacking in character?

Ronaldo on a free, absolutely. Anything more than 50mil for a 32 year old is INSANE even in today's market. I'd rather spend 60 mil on Morata than Ronaldo. Ronaldos ability is only going to go down from here.

Happy with Morata, don't see any1 better available. Dybala, Griezmann, Kane, Ohmydingdong, Lukaku all unavailable/ going elsewhere.

Most importantly Jose wants him it would seem.
