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.

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.



29 Sep 2018 19:31:06
Well, at least we're finally first on the match of the day running order!




29 Sep 2018 15:18:31
We could be 10th in the league by the end of today. 10th!

I wouldn't even mind if I enjoyed watching us play. But once again I've been bored and disappointed by Manchester United. Not words I've had to use much for the last 30 years, but all too commonplace these days.


1.) 29 Sep 2018 16:38:02
Love how Karl Pilkington summed it up: "I feel like supporting United is like having a tortoise as a pet. I had a tortoise, and they are not entertaining to watch. You don't watch them, but you know you have got a bit of responsibility to show some interest. "

I'm still watching, but it's hard to enjoy in the slightest.

2.) 29 Sep 2018 16:38:03
Forget tactics, systems or even style of play. The fundamental problem at Utd is a total lack of intensity, energy and hunger when not in possession of the football.

Against Wolves, Derby and West Ham today we simply sat deep behind the ball and watched the opposition play. When Declan Rice and Mark Noble look like classy impersonations of Xavi and Iniesta you know something is wrong. When Wolves and Derby are allowed to move the ball around akin to Barcelona your finished.

I don't know if it's the attitude of the players the tactics or a combination of the both but if you're lazy and don't work hard both in and out of possession you get exactly what you deserve.

Mourinho's problems at Utd aren't tactical or his attention to detail. He's lost the one attribute that made him special. His ability to motivate his players. The ability to inspire them to run through the pits of hell rather than miss a tackle or lose their man. The ability to be humble, work hard and understand that it's not ability that will make the difference but attitude and mental fortitude. Nothing special can be forged without endeavour and sacrifice.

Until Mourinho is able to select a side that will run through brick walls, contest every challenge, fight for every inch we'll continue to see more of this rubbish. The problem is he's ran out of lieutenants.

If there is one area where I believe he has become outdated and out of touch it's his ability to manage and motivate today's fragile ego's.

I don't like defensive or pragmatic football but I'm no football snob and there is no reason why this style can't be successful. Unfortunately we're neither pragmatic nor defensive merely a pathetic imposter of them both.

3.) 29 Sep 2018 17:02:06
Good post DLIB. Footballers nowadays aren’t made the same way as they were 10-15 years ago. They are snowflakes who lack the desire and passion to succeed. They also appear to be more sensitive and this break them down attitude clearly doesn’t work anymore. Football has moved on. And unfortunately Jose has not. He needs characters such as Lampard, terry, Drogba, lucio, motta, zanetti, militto who will die fighting for him. He just does not have that in this squad. You would have thought Lukaku, bailly, matic, pogba would be like that. But they have not stepped up. I don’t doubt Jose may go to PSG and win more trophies. But his time at united is up and it’s best for both parties to part ways quickly. We need to have a quick resolution here. Waiting could be so damaging. Let’s see if the board has the bollocks to do it. I have my doubts.

4.) 29 Sep 2018 17:30:47
The reason we sit off teams is down to Mourinho’s tactics .
If that’s what players are told to do by the manager then that’s what they’re going to do.

5.) 29 Sep 2018 18:03:22
Spot on Bilko. And excellent post DLIB.

6.) 30 Sep 2018 08:23:59
We look like Chelsea in Jose last season .
You thought it was a matter of time before he turned it round, hazard and Costa couldn't be that bad, Chelsea couldn't be that bad .

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.}

Does anyone know what's happened with Bailly? He started well, looking like he could be a long term starter for us, but seems to have disappeared altogether. Anyone know why? Eds?

Great Post dlib, I couldn't agree more.

What confuses me is that I don't buy for one second the someone of Jose's experience can't see that, so I can't fathom why he sets us up the way he does.

Midfield 3 of pogba, Matic and mctominay tells me we can expect exactly the same thing we've seeing all season. No vision from midfield, poor service to the front men, boring football and a lack of chances. If this is his final game I feel he's going out with a whimper.

The issue is not just the players, it's the system. The way we play doesn't get the most out of our players.

The problem we have is our defence isn't that strong, so we need a lot of cover and this leaves our atta ks toothless. We have talented people to both move the ball forward and deliver the final pass and finish, we just never have them in their best positions.

352 solves this problem. Midfield 3 of Matic, Fred, pogba with a back 3 should have us solid defensively, whilst allowing pogba and Fred the freedom to express themselves going forward without exposing us defensively. Width comes from Shaw and dalot, sanchez and lukaku upfront will hopefully get the best out of a very talented sanchez and give better service to lukaku.

Its a shame for martial, jese and rashford, but I'm not sold on any of them being good enough anyway.
