BBC reporting that neither us or arsenal will agree to the sanchez transfer unless miki goes the other way.

No idea how much truth is in this, especially given how Ed02's previously stated that transfers involving money and an additional player are generally unlikely.

Imo if that's what's needes to get sanchez in I'd be more than happy, but it doesn't fill me with confidence for this transfer to happen.


1.) 16 Jan 2018 13:11:00
I can’t see it. I think miki will turn them down and it will go tits up.

2.) 16 Jan 2018 13:27:12
That's what in thinking. But then again, he must know now that he's not really wanted, so a move is going to be needed to reignite his career.

3.) 16 Jan 2018 13:28:18
Looks like it's other agents trying to scupper the Sanchez deal. If he comes brilliant . But let's not spend all January chasing a lost cause.

4.) 16 Jan 2018 17:15:59
It's being reported now it would be a straight player swap.

5.) 16 Jan 2018 17:51:52
Mhiki’s agent now stepping into the deal.

Enough said.

6.) 18 Jan 2018 13:22:23
Wenger saying deal is likely.



11 Jan 2018 12:53:59
Apparently we have put in a bid for Sanchez.

Made my day hearing that.

I can't believe it's only been 11 weeks! Amazing the change in such a short period of time. I haven't felt this good about football in years.




05 Jan 2019 09:53:56
OGS discussing thean utd players:

Definitely, players will get the chance. When they’re here, they’re good enough to play for Man United and you trust them, so I’m looking forward to tomorrow. ”

That's what I want to hear and a stark contrast to the last chap.


1.) 05 Jan 2019 12:00:53
Even if it’s not true?

2.) 05 Jan 2019 12:09:15
Ole is growing on me every day. No fellaini today despite all the changes he only makes the bench. I wonder how much longer he will be at the club.
Looking forward to seeing the game today.

3.) 05 Jan 2019 12:30:11
Yes, when if its not true. He needs to make this tram greater than the sum of the parts, and may need to rely on any of those players if injuries etc force his hand. Build them up, make them into more than they were when you found them, that's the managers job.

4.) 05 Jan 2019 12:42:09
Fellaini has been linked with a move to turkey for 2 years. If a club finally comes in for him he’ll be off I think.

5.) 05 Jan 2019 13:22:49
Yeah and the much appraised Perreira has been at the heart of everything. did he even touch the ball first half? Fellaini would have been much better than the 3 mids that are currently playing.

6.) 05 Jan 2019 14:36:17
I agree shan but he is not going to get any better those guys need the opportunity.

7.) 05 Jan 2019 14:48:58
Most of that starting team isn't good enough. Pereira convinced me he should be departing. Same with McTominay. Add to that Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Rojo, Fellaini, Mata for sure.

8.) 05 Jan 2019 15:40:58
Smalling is a decent 3rd choice cb and can maintain a squad place imo i'd add darmian to that list mort.

9.) 05 Jan 2019 20:26:23
Perreira is as much a central midfielder, as I am an international porn star. He's an attacking midfielder.

10.) 05 Jan 2019 22:12:36
Yeah I meant to add Darmian. He's the invisible man.

I still don't think Pereira is good enough.



07 Nov 2018 19:00:03
Liking the look of the team again. Herrera in for Fred and Jesse replacing mata. Sanchez up front again.

Another chance for sanchez to demonstrate he's actually still a decent player and maybe make himself a long term starter. Not too confident he'll take it, but at least I won't be left with that horrible feeling when he leaves that if jose just played him upfront with some speed and creativity behind him he'd have been a great success.

Not seeing him given that opportunity has been a major source of my frustration and I'm still hoping he'll see this as an opportunity and grab it with both hands.


1.) 08 Nov 2018 07:49:12
I thought he looked very good last night.



03 Nov 2018 11:37:52
Sanchez up front. It's the front 3 we've been wanting. I so hope sanchez demonstrate the player he can be and makes the front position his own.


1.) 03 Nov 2018 12:23:50
Will Sanchez play striker?

2.) 03 Nov 2018 12:46:54
I think we'll have to pay teams to take Smalling off us.

3.) 03 Nov 2018 13:14:14
Ssshhhh Mort. Jred is his biggest fan.

Not looking for a bite Jred, just a bit of banter.

4.) 03 Nov 2018 14:35:52
Of course your not betty, just keep telling yourself that.

5.) 03 Nov 2018 15:27:19
Smalling is horrible. Why you think Southgate doesn't pick him.

6.) 03 Nov 2018 15:36:50
He’s such a liability. A centre back is a priority in January if we want to secure top 4.

7.) 03 Nov 2018 15:38:33
Wenger wanted him!

8.) 03 Nov 2018 15:41:18
Southgate knows better than Mourinho.

9.) 03 Nov 2018 16:16:58
Southgate for manager!

10.) 03 Nov 2018 16:31:35
Who else can mourinho pick? Sick note, or a 2 clueless donkeys that hoofs the ball all game? I can't think of any others that play CB.

Tuanzabe? yeh we want to try win games not trial and error a young kid at CB.

{Ed001's Note - Tuanzebe is on loan isn't he? Sure he went to Villa.}

11.) 03 Nov 2018 17:32:31
Two centre halves would be nice but Toby has to be priority now! Him and Lindelof could make a nice pairing.

12.) 03 Nov 2018 21:53:50
Yes Ed. Not ready just yet, and wonder if he will ever make it at utd.

{Ed001's Note - people say that about every kid until they get a run of games. If they don't get a chance how will you ever know and how will they ever get ready?}

13.) 04 Nov 2018 03:05:55
Incidentally this was just sent in on the Villa site about him from Davedean82: Axel gets better and better, with every game . his pace and the ground he cover is amazing. Also he's helping Chester recover some of his confidence . That was Chester's best game for ages, him and Axel could make a great pairing.

14.) 04 Nov 2018 09:14:36
I like Tuanzebe and think he's got a great chance which is why I wouldn't sign any younger centre backs. I think we need an older head to guide the younger ones.

15.) 04 Nov 2018 10:10:05
Needs experience that he's getting then should get a chance.



19 Oct 2018 07:59:19
Wow! There's another "should jose be sacked" article on BBC, give it a rest guys, I'm bored of the conversation. It's easy to think jose has a point about the man hunt.


1.) 19 Oct 2018 09:00:05
He certainly does have a very big point, he has brought some of it on himself though unfortunately.

2.) 19 Oct 2018 09:33:02
He has to an extent but I say this every time, we knew what type of character and manager we was getting when the club hired him, he’s abrasive, he calls people out, he doesn’t bow down to the media. The Press used to love him but he’s stayed around long enough to see himself become a villain now, managing us automatically makes him a bigger target.
If Pep and Klopp stay about long enough a new media darling will arrive and they too will be torn apart, Klopp especially I feel, if Liverpool fail to win anything again this year there’s no hiding behind net spends and he’s a jokey character, they would have failed and need to be judged on the same levels as United and City, Klopp doesn’t deserve a witch hunt like Jose is getting if course buy you can bet yourselves that he will become a target.
Jose has to carry the can of course formour results but the gutter media do have an agenda, they always do, if real journalism was all we read and heard about them things would be so much better.

3.) 19 Oct 2018 12:58:59
I would like our club to take a stance like Bayern have today. A united defence of management and players against trash media.

4.) 19 Oct 2018 13:48:27
Well said Inhope.

5.) 19 Oct 2018 19:29:10
He deserves to be sacked for the turgid football he serves up every game.

6.) 20 Oct 2018 13:25:54
Agreed Jamesbhoy.

Just listening to him talk in the interview, I see what people mean when they say people are winners. Even in conversation it's all he focuses on. Definitely going to be a positive force in the dressing room.

I'm not trying to piss people off. But I'm curious how unusual it is for a player to move to a club that isn't his first choice.

In the real world lots of us work for companies that don't even reach our top 100 first choices.

I suppose if di Maria is anything to go off, it typically ends badly when you're a highly paid elite footballer.

Let be put it anither way Ed.

Previously you said this :

{Ed002's Note - The deal is simple - if MU pay way more than one would expect for the player and way, way, way, over the odds in fees, they might be able to sign a player who wants to move to Real Madrid. }

Given that comment and the fact we may now sign him, I'm asking 2 things.

1. Is this a case of utd paying way over the odds compared to what other clubs are prepared to pay?

2. How unusual is it for a big player to not get his first choice club, and how much of a problem would you expect that to cause when playing for his 2nd / 3rd etc choice club?


{Ed002's Note - The situation is as I explained. And it changes nothing in terms of what I said.}

Ed002, 2hats your thoughts on it? Is this a case of utd being stupid enough to pay more than anyone else, as you've previously suggested, or do you think this has the potential to be a good deal?

I may be being a but stupid, as you've said he doesn't want to come here and that RM is his preference, but I don't know how common it is for a big name player to not go straight to his preferred choice and as such the potential trouble it can cause.


{Ed002's Note - I don't understand your post at all. I have explained that after a meeting on Tuesday it may be clearer in terms of what will be happening. I have no idea what you are prattling on about nor what you find confusing from my very short and very simple comment.}

You could probably argue the best thing we could do is set the team up to best utilise Lukaku. If we played to his strengths we'd probably score more goals. Not sure it would be the kind of football we want, but we might end up with more points.

I'll add to the Ken Easter love fest. He makes solid, well reasoned posts and seems a little less prone to the knee jerk reactions we see so often.

Ken, Ed 2 has already said ole has limited authority when it comes to incoming and outgoing players. We will be left with a mediocre manager with potential, and whatever players woody deems appropriate. And imo its unlikely that combination leads to a title winning performance.

It blows my mind how people of such ridiculous levels of wealth make such stupid decisions. Not just a taxi, he could have paid for someone to drive his car home so he didn't have to leave it. There is literally no excuse. I guess he doesn't care about the fine or losing his license because he can always get a chauffeur for a few years til the ban expires and barely notice the change in his bank account.

F**k that guy! He deserves to have the book thrown at him.

I'm with you on the excitement front, can't avoid it, but I do not feel confident in the slightest. I just hope we're still in it after the game. I'd take a dull 0-0 all night long.
