Question for 002 if around, appreciate the sharkopod and I see boateng wasn't mentioned. Are we looking at him now or is it a case of sly sports bull again? Apologies if dealt with.


{Ed002's Note - Perhaps an alternative to the preferred choice.}

1.) 06 Aug 2018 17:26:42
Worrying signs mate. according to ed001 he overrated and had issues with Bayern board due to somethings to do with jay z.

2.) 06 Aug 2018 17:41:36
Thanks 002. Much appreciated.

3.) 06 Aug 2018 19:11:48
Player is on a sharp decline. Hasn’t put in the effort over the last few seasons, too many off field distractions, too concerned with celebrity lifestyle. Would clash with Jose immediately. Think his signing would be an indication of desperation to make a signing before th deadline.

4.) 06 Aug 2018 19:36:20
cant think of a worse choice than Boateng of all the options that we seem to be linked with.

5.) 06 Aug 2018 19:41:25
He is the type of player we will target and most probably sign. Someone who wants a big pay day and couldn't give a monkeys about the club who gives it him. We're becoming a grave yard for mercenaries and their bank accounts. Don't see why we need a cb, we're riddled in other areas that need addressing in my opinion.

6.) 06 Aug 2018 19:42:47
Agreed danny it smacks of desperation didn't fancy him when he was at city haven't fancied him at bayern and most certainly don't fancy him here.

Literally no better than any of our defenders imo.

7.) 06 Aug 2018 20:53:52
Boeteng was shocking at the world cup as well. I'd stay clear of him. I heard SS staying we have 5 centre backs on the list but we have only identified 4. Like I said varane would be a dream, but also Godin is a good shout if we can get him.

8.) 06 Aug 2018 21:08:28
I so hope these Boateng reports are BS, final nail in the coffin if we sign him.

9.) 06 Aug 2018 21:18:09
Final nail in the coffin 😂 oh beast that did make me laugh!

10.) 06 Aug 2018 20:17:20
His form over the last 12-18 months has fell off a cliff. Before that he was one of the best around. If he plays how he has in the past he s head and shoulders above any of our defenders. However, Bayern know when to get rid of a player. We've been caught out by it in the past and it's tough to see that this will be different.

Still prefer him to Maguire though 😂😂.



24 Jul 2018 16:53:00
Any ideas what Mr Ibrahimovic could be alluding to in his recent 'surprise' comments?


{Ed004's Note - He could just as easily be trying to take the pressure off Jose}

1.) 24 Jul 2018 19:12:28
Most likely be ibra re-signing on loan at the end of the mls season. I shudder at that thought.

2.) 25 Jul 2018 09:48:25
Its a very jose kinda thing to do. relying on pensioners again 🙄.

Sick of hearing bitter pundits wanting rashford to leave. The lads 20 years old. He's Manchester born, and from the academy. Would he start at City, Chelsea or Liverpool? No. He's a young player learning, yes performances show he should start more often but for people to be asking him to be leading the line is a little out of touch I think.


1.) 12 Sep 2018 18:41:57
I agree mate. It’s ridiculous. He’s played over 100 games for us. Phil foden has played 8 minutes this year but apparently his development is fantastic being at city.

2.) 14 Sep 2018 23:10:00
He is no Mbappe.



09 Sep 2018 11:48:48
Interesting comments from the king today, despite having no managerial experience I think he'd be great at the helm of your great club one day. Very inspiring and motivational man.


1.) 09 Sep 2018 18:31:03
Ermm not for me, would be a huge mistake and disaster.

{Ed025's Note - nor me GDS, excellent player but a scumbag of a person with the morals of a gutter rat..

2.) 09 Sep 2018 20:36:11
It would be interesting, tho. You have to admit 😁.

{Ed025's Note - very much so noucamp, but if it went tits up (and i think it would) then united would be back to square one mate..

3.) 09 Sep 2018 21:42:29
Roy Keane for me if a former player is to be considered 😆😆.

4.) 10 Sep 2018 07:20:15
I assume we are talking about Cantona? Ed's comments sound more like he is referring to Giggs?

{Ed025's Note - thats my bad betty i was talking about giggs, sorry mate i seem to have been confused over that thread mate..

5.) 10 Sep 2018 08:01:48
Ed, I'm not doubting you, but could you just let us know maybe the top three things he's done to warrant that description? I only know of the kicking of the Palace fan, which was a response to some vile language about his sister/ mother. What worse things has he done?

{Ed025's Note - i was answering a different thread RWWD abut giggs, totally my fault and i apologise profusely, i like cantona and he never hit that palace fan hard enough for me mate..

6.) 10 Sep 2018 19:02:23
No probs Ed - honestly wasn't trying to be awkward. Giggs and Cantona both made comments at the weekend, but I thought your comments sounded like they suited Giggs a little better!
I wasn't totally sure myself who the OP was about, that's the only reason I asked.

{Ed025's Note - yeah betty the giggs one was the one i thought i was replying to mate..

7.) 11 Sep 2018 07:17:34
Haha, I see what happened Ed! Thank the wee man, Cantona is my childhood hero. Glad you didn’t have any revelations about his personal life!

{Ed025's Note - i like eric and even though hes a bit of a flawed genius he seems to be a top bloke mate..



23 Aug 2018 20:34:01
Just a quick mention for darmian. Told he could leave, wanted to leave and it didn't happen. Instead he's gotten on with it, accepted the clubs stance. Certain other players should take note. True professional.


1.) 23 Aug 2018 21:02:49
I know I’m in the minority but I really like Darmian, I think he’s a pretty good defender but that isn’t enough nowadays.

2.) 23 Aug 2018 21:09:37
Just doesn't stand out. Solid 6/ 10 player.

3.) 23 Aug 2018 22:08:51
In a defence where we can’t defend,
He’s ok in my book.

4.) 23 Aug 2018 22:51:30
Not the worst defender but gives nothing in attack which is half the job nowadays.
None of our full backs give much to the attack.
Pogna martial lukaku would all look better players with mauading full backs like ashley cole zanetti or marcelo trippier etc
Very few players can look great every game all on their own most need a supporting cast. Our best footballers have no supporting cast to play to their strengths.
Who is crossing for lukaku from the by line every week? Who is over lapoing for sanchez martial rashford? Creating time and space?
Who has pogba got making runs into space to pass to?
All would look better with a better more complimentary supporting cast imo.

5.) 24 Aug 2018 00:16:25
Ken, did you just mention Trippier in the same list as Zanetti?

6.) 24 Aug 2018 00:20:21
Darmian is limited by our lack of wingers. On both sides we play players who like to drop off and cut inside. This means all our width is provided by the full backs. Darmian isn’t fast enough to get up and down the lines, so he either stays deep or risks getting caught out. Decent player, but not in this setup.

7.) 24 Aug 2018 01:14:16
Post wasn't really about his quality, had promise and I do like him and sometimes I'd rather him on than young. But yeah steady player, true professional.



19 Aug 2018 21:16:22
I think we need to go back to the 352 from preseason.


1.) 19 Aug 2018 22:08:54
I think we need to go back to 1993.



16 Aug 2018 20:21:46
Not a player mentioned much on here but if we were to sell pogba I would love to see saul niguez come in.


{Ed004's Note - Wasnt he a player we were linked to for about 20 mill a few seasons back too}

1.) 16 Aug 2018 22:01:10
Around that ballpark I believe Ed. Scores some cracking goals, brilliant dribbling, close control, wicked left foot on him. Not sure if we passed up on him or he wasn't interested in moving (002 May have mentioned this, apologies if I'm mistaken) .

Wouldn't surprise me if we did pass up the chance though.

2.) 17 Aug 2018 09:18:38
Good player in sure ed said he didn't want to leave Spain and would cost a lot.

3.) 17 Aug 2018 10:24:15
He wanted to leave spain and was interested in premier league wages and the league but we rejected it and it was at the time of Van Gaal.

{Ed002's Note - The interest dates from a while back when Saul Niguez was of speculative interest to Barcelona, Arsenal, Manchester United and Bayern Munich and in January 2015 Atletico Madrid told the two clubs who enquired (Manchester United and Barcelona) that they had no desire to sell. Manchester United had scheduled a January 2016 meeting but the club cancelled it because of the toxics. The player has repeatedly insisted he had no interest in leaving Spain unless an option opens up in England and the reason for speculation was that the player and the club were unable, at that time, to agree the terms for a contract extension. An offer from Arsenal was rejected out of hand but Barcelona have periodically returned with interest but the player and his agent wanted the Premier League if he is to move, the profile that brings and the money are attractive - and approaches were made to Chelsea and Manchester United - but the fee was very high indeed.}

4.) 17 Aug 2018 10:26:00
No his haircut is a bit too flash for me.

5.) 17 Aug 2018 12:44:27
Like the player but have zero chance in signing him. Signed a very long contract and has no intention of leaving.

Not sure why Woodward gets stick, he's spent and spent. It's the manager and players who haven't got the results. I agree with not spending on old players with little to no resale value so it's a pretty pointless argument. Would you have backed mourinho this summer? Wanted a 70mil 30year old right winger from Chelsea and supposedly 70+mil melonhead cb from Leicester. Don't think either would be making any difference right now.

Twenty. or perhaps he's buying experience to win while he's here, when the overhaul starts, pereira fosu mensa gomes and chong will be ready to take over? He's unlikely to stay longer than this year I think.

Agree with you on matic beast, definitely need to bring somebody in for the holding role in Jan or the summer. He's the passenger lately. Who would you replace him with? No stand out DM I can think of who would be attainable.
