Creme de la menthe! Parlez-vous Norn Iron?

How to speak Norn Iron (very funny)

Cheers Eds for the accompanying video. I've never felt sympathy for the French before, but God help them if we do the unthinkable, and actually bloody qualify.

Blaming everyone from the owners to the cleaning staff and the dinner lady, is a very convenient way of deflecting attention away from a manager who, with a win needed to close the gap on the leaders, sets us up try and soak up all that the best attacking unit in the league has to throw at us for 90 minutes, whilst hoping for a set piece, or a lucky knock on at the other end as the result of countless, aimless long balls up to the big man.

I'm sorry, but if Pulis or Big Sam sent a team out with those instructions, everyone, including us, would rightly be slating them. Why does José, after spending what he has, get a bye ball in this regard? He's now had two seasons to come up with something more sophisticated than lump it up to the big man.

The difference between the ideas and ambitions of the two managers, was laid out there bare, for all to see today.

1.) 10 Dec 2017 21:49:43
Ive been one of Jose biggest supporter's but even I have to agree Noucamp, I think he got it wrong today! He reverted to type after two promising away performances at Watford and Arsenal! Maybe it's just a bit raw so soon after the game but I thought we were pretty dreadful! It almost feels as though the season is over before it's even began which I know is stupid. We're still in a fight for top 4 I wouldn't take that for granted either!

Another big game disappointment!

2.) 10 Dec 2017 21:50:47
We need a plan and we need to stick with it. I like the 343 and think it could work well long-term, with variations depending on opponent of course.

3.) 10 Dec 2017 21:34:37
100% correct. We can't expect to reignite the glory if we play like a damp squib. Out with the bus in with the Ferrari.j

4.) 10 Dec 2017 22:40:47
Danny, I've never liked the man, but I could see the need to bring him in, especially after the LVG years of anti-football. And once he's here, I'll back him. But that was pitiful today. On a par with the Liverpool game, bearing in mind we were at home today.

5.) 10 Dec 2017 22:45:54
Who would you get to manage us.

6.) 10 Dec 2017 22:52:24
I don't want to get rid of him, jred. Like you said, we're not sitting mid-table. It just doesn't feel like a comfortable fit, for the club or for him. Just how I feel about it.

7.) 10 Dec 2017 23:03:53
Like I said to beast tho pal, who else is there, I'm really not sure.

8.) 10 Dec 2017 23:28:06
That's why MU need a plan Jred, start targeting certain players in the youth structure, play a certain way and formation. Start buying certain players for the first team. Start playing a certain way, then you bring in managers who fit the style of play, not bring in a manager to change everything to play the new manager's style.

Doesn't matter who coaches the Barcelona side, they'll always adopt the same style of play. It's taught the same way in La Masia. It's a philosophy. MU need an infrastructure bigger than a manager.

9.) 10 Dec 2017 23:30:56
Who's managing Barcelona's B Team just now? 😀.

10.) 10 Dec 2017 23:52:08
Monaco manager said it numerous times mate. We need a young attack minded manager, all these "Winners" have had their day, the young guns have studied them, and improved on their mistakes. Give the Monaco manager £150m and we will have us playing like the Utd of Old. As you get older you get more defensive, even happened to SAF.

11.) 11 Dec 2017 08:49:34
The Monaco manager? Who has won a grand total of one league title in Greece and 1 in France.

12.) 11 Dec 2017 08:52:30
You mean like we did we lvg?
Fans didn't like it pal so we went down the same road as everyone else, get a top manager and give him lots of cash.
Also have a read up of what butt is doing with the youth team.



20 Nov 2017 23:37:22
Just wanted to give a shout out to Darren Fletcher. When you think of the illness that he had, I think a lot of people thought he would quietly fade away after leaving Utd. But 100 consecutive Premier League appearances since he left, is an amazing achievement. Also became the Scotsman with the most appearances in the EPL, tonight. Incredible determination on his part, and a fantastic achievement.

1.) 21 Nov 2017 00:39:59
Well said Noucamp.

2.) 21 Nov 2017 00:43:46
Absolutely mate!

Brilliant player for us and obvious warrior on and off the pitch.



20 Nov 2017 23:33:30
Top of the table clash in my dream team this week.

£8m to spend on a midfielder.

Martial or Pogba?

If Martial plays, he'll obviously be playing in an attacking role, and yet he's listed as a midfielder, so obvious chance for points. But it's a big if. Pogba pretty much guaranteed to start, but not so much of a goal threat.

Any help would be appreciated.

1.) 21 Nov 2017 07:52:26
Well there’s no guarantee that Martial will set so I’d stay with a Pogba who is also handy with goals.

2.) 21 Nov 2017 19:31:56
Pogba mate. Martial is a bigger gamble. Pogba shoots more than a porn star, Martial gets dragged off as well if he does start.

3.) 21 Nov 2017 20:28:26
Yeah, think Pogba's the safer choice. Of course, it's now guaranteed Martial will get a hat trick.



30 Oct 2017 23:12:48
What's people's thoughts on Jose's comments about Utd fans booing Lukaku? I know it was only from the TV, but I didn't hear any booing, and if there was, I'd suggest that it was annoyance with taking Rashford off, rather than anything directly against Lukaku.

And after his PSG comments, is José really in a position to start giving fans lectures about loyalty?

{Ed007's Note - What do you think he should lecture fans about?* Seems no matter what Jose says - and even what he doesn't - seems to upset some fans. Unless he called my mam a cow I wouldn't pay too much attention to what Jose says, he's far more intelligent than you, Stevie mate with your O-Level geography.
But if he Jose DID call my mam a cow he'd face the wrath!!! And it ain't pretty!!!!
*It was me booing Rashord off, telling him Stoke's planning a bid for Danny Welbeck.}

1.) 31 Oct 2017 14:08:06
Bond, step away from the Buckie :)



25 Oct 2017 14:35:37
Right. Let's get down to the nitty-gritty of the game against Spurs. Do I drop Kane or Lukaku from my Fantasy Football team, or leave them both in?

1.) 25 Oct 2017 14:42:13
Drop the 2 of them we will be playing 6 at the back.

2.) 25 Oct 2017 14:49:10

Show me the last game Jose played 6 at the back in a home and game.

3.) 25 Oct 2017 15:05:15
Stevie, I'll drop lukaku. Kane and Spurs are in excellent form and our lot haven't exactly lit the PL in the last two matches. Jose will park the bus in all probability.

4.) 25 Oct 2017 15:17:09
Gds I was being humorous.

5.) 25 Oct 2017 15:26:13
I've dropped Lukaku for Aguero. Kane is always going to score where as under Jose Lukaku is easily affected by the lack of service.

6.) 25 Oct 2017 15:28:32
Having this dilemma myself, tempted to drop Kane for the 1 week and bring him back for the follwing, I also have Jesus and who knows who Pep will play.

7.) 25 Oct 2017 15:46:40
Welsh always good to have Jesus on your side.

8.) 25 Oct 2017 16:38:47
Drop lukaku and pick rashford.

9.) 25 Oct 2017 20:08:47
Keep big rom Stevie. Brace on Saturday.

10.) 26 Oct 2017 00:18:16
Cheers, lads. I'm none the wiser :)

Deli Ali suddenly become rubbish, after a slowish start? He's a young lad. His form is going to be hit and miss at times. I'd have him here every day of the week. Makes things happen and takes chances. Mind you, José would soon knock that nonsense out of him :)

To be fair, they were playing with a midfielder at left back, and he's done pretty well so far, apart from today's slip up.

I think Mata would do well at Madrid. Slower pace of the games, surrounded by some top players, would play to his strengths.

John O'Shea wouldn't have got into too many other top teams, either, but still played a solid part in our success. What's wrong with having good, solid squad players as back up? We all know we can't have 25 worldies.

Was always disappointed we didn't get Ozil when he went to Madrid, and when he went to Arsenal. Class act.

{Ed007's Note - I was the same, Stevie. I've always liked Ozil and the Arsenal move was never going to work imo.}

Eric, I'll give you Lingard and Young, but the others?

Martial improved on his first season? I still think he'll turn out to be a class player, but I wouldn't say he's improved since his first season, though I do expect him to improve no matter what manager comes in. Jones and Rojo are good players, who haven't been able to show their true worth, due to injuries and/ or being played out of position. Fellaini has been played all over the place since he was bought, limiting his effectiveness at times, together with the ridiculous way he was treated by some so-called fans. Valencia has been a good, solid player for years, but improving in the last one and a half seasons? And by your own admission, Herrera has gone backwards this season.

Just think you're stretching José's powers of improvement a wee bit there, mate. I also still believe Shaw is going to be a top left back, either with us or another club.

Sorry, Shahram. if you're talking about the Herrera dive, then I suggest you get a new pair of spectacles, mate. Stone cold dive, and a part of his game along with rolling around the ground like he's been shot by a sniper, that I really don't care for.

It saddens me a little, that we depend so much on one midfielder.
