Q for 002 if around, are the club actively looking to buy this January or are we most likely going to see nothing until clarity over the permanent manager?


{Ed002's Note - I try and avoid discussions about timing but if the right player becomes available it is possible purchases could be made. Certainly the club has had discussions with agents and other sides as recently as today, but it is tough to make things happen in January.}

1.) 16 Jan 2019 15:32:20
002. Not sure if you have covered this off before. What are your thoughts on the January transfer window? Apologies if it's been covered and I missed it.

{Ed002's Note - Does not really help anyone. I would scrap them completely.}

2.) 16 Jan 2019 16:08:46
The old system worked fine, was nothing wrong with it.

3.) 16 Jan 2019 18:41:25
Agreed Mort, think having two windows puts a lot of pressure on clubs and many tend to make hurried decisions leading to overpaying and many times acquiring a player that is wrong for the club.

4.) 16 Jan 2019 20:11:50
Would love to see the window open the day after the champions league final and close the day before the first game of the season. I know some leagues start different times but really the big leagues start around the same time so wouldn’t be that bad. Go with what you have for the season and if injuries occur, you go youth.

5.) 16 Jan 2019 21:54:08
Heps to inflate prices, especially during the January transfer window.



06 Aug 2018 16:09:51
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 🙄.

Wander over to the Liverpool page, they've won the game already by their reckoning.

The exact attitude that's going to lose them the title. Feel they have the right to an automatic win every game.

Underestimate us at your peril. OT will be rocking and we are playing great football.

2-1 United I believe.


1.) 24 Feb 2019 12:19:18
I saw, and I posted a couple of things, particularly to the ‘but who have Unted actually beaten’ argument. There are some sensible Scousers over there but 1 or 2 are deluded.

2.) 24 Feb 2019 13:07:29
United fans used to be that cocky, but we were dominating English football for 20 years. The attitude from some of those Liverpool fans is astounding. But part of me thinks it's just nerves. They're a quality team and it will be a tough game that's for sure but we'll give them more of game than we did the last time out.

3.) 24 Feb 2019 13:35:19
Only marginally true that Redwhisky.
In fact quite a lot my folk have given your lot their due with many less than optimistic.
I'm among those very confident, but very few of us are under any illusions as to how tough it will be, for both teams.

Nothing wrong being confident of a good result. We've earned the right to be, as have yourselves.
Funnily enough, I've had a number of your lot saying no way LFC should be confident of a result.

Massive game. Stakes have never been this higher for both teams in a long time. We both need the points, literally. We having a decent season. You've been on a resurgence yourselves.
Fans either side buzzing AND very confident. And why not?

Soljaer did say he won't be dropping back. Will go for it, so it should be an open interesting game. Or it won't.

4.) 24 Feb 2019 13:51:49
That's the thing. United were perceived as arrogant but we had the trophies to back it up. 29 years isn't mentioned enough given we never heard the end of 26.



08 Feb 2019 14:21:10
Ole manager of the month and rash player of the month. Well deserved.


1.) 08 Feb 2019 17:34:56
Shan will be gutted 😂😂.

2.) 08 Feb 2019 18:23:29
Think he's gna be gutted a lot this season.

3.) 09 Feb 2019 09:37:34
Just because shan has an opinion doesn't mean he does not want rash or ole to do well.
Im not as convinced as many on shaw. I thin k he is pretty average but i'm delighted when he does well.
We have a couple of resident 'told you so' posters on here who just come on to start a row.
Dont jump on that bandwagon lads because those that already do it show themselves up to be small minded posters with no opinion of their own. They sit on the fence and throw stones at good posters. Like stadler and waldorf out of the muppets. With double standards talking out of both sides of their mouth. They really have no opinion of their own. Sad little posters.
Opinions on players will change as their form changes.
It happens, everybody on here wants united and all their players to do well. ( except for the odd ed and mighty reds of course😂)

4.) 10 Feb 2019 19:01:54
Banter page? Shans a big boy. Lighten up Ken.



31 Jan 2019 14:16:59
Best signing we could have made, martial tied down, he and rash are the future of united. Now for dave the save and hopefully Herrera!


1.) 01 Feb 2019 04:33:32
If we can lock those 4 in before the end of the season then it will have been a good winter, signings wise.



28 Jan 2019 17:55:01
Anyone else think Zaha could be a good option for the right? Didn't work out with us, bad management imo. But i think he could step up. Mind you would cost atleast twice as much this time around.


1.) 28 Jan 2019 18:11:07
I think he’s found his level, I don’t see him at a top 6 team.

2.) 28 Jan 2019 18:25:38
Agree with AJH and why would he want to come back, Moyes’ daughter is no longer around.

3.) 28 Jan 2019 18:36:52
Good player AJH, think he'd be a fit for Tottenham.

4.) 28 Jan 2019 18:39:47
I think he has the talent to be a player for a top 6 side, I don't think he has the mentality though. I think being the big fish in a small pond suits him better.

5.) 28 Jan 2019 18:39:58
Hasn’t scored for about 5 months or something. Good player but a bit too in love with himself.

6.) 28 Jan 2019 18:55:08
Will go to china at some point for the cash i'd say.

7.) 28 Jan 2019 19:13:44
What makes you say that ken? What impression from zaha have you got that he's that type of player who only plays for cash.

If anything it is the opposite, he could have left crystal palace for a few windows now but stayed with them and performed very well.

On zahas time at united its pretty clear it was too much too soon and it was overwhelming for him but we did sell him down the river, he signed in january 2013 on the assumption that sir alex would have a couple more seasons in him and he could develop under one of the best.

Then it turns out fergie retired, moyes and his cabal come in and we all know that season was a shambles, it would have been hard for any young attacking player to develop in that season.

Hope he gets his move and proves people wrong, quality player.

8.) 28 Jan 2019 20:03:21
Its just where i think he will end up Dsg. If he can't get a move to a top 6 club in the next year or 2 i think he and palace might get an offer they can't refuse.
I really like him as a player he get your attention every time i see him. But i'd say he wiuld be twice as frustrating as nani ever was and the flashes will not happen and they don't happen often enough.

9.) 29 Jan 2019 00:57:09
His decision making is horrible, he loses the ball too much and is very inconsistent. Nani was twice the player that he is.

10.) 29 Jan 2019 09:39:40
Not for me. Should stay at Palace and be the main man. Well he can go anywhere, as long as it’s not back to Old Trafford.



15 Jan 2019 12:56:47
Anybody catch the pitch side post match interview with Ole and Sheringham quizzing him?

Ole got a nice sly dig in at mourinho when asked what he had to change when coming in.

'Manchester United is about going forward, not stupid square balls and back passes'

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.

Tbf 001 before I read this I thought maybe you would take a bias. But I was surprised to be fair. I mean it's hard to say united weren't more up for it but I was surprised how low some Liverpool players you rated that game.

Like me, do you see Liverpool buckling again? On a neutral side the football and squad you guys have you deserve to win the league imo as much as I hate to admit it. but do you think Liverpool will ever get over the pressure of a run in? Again this season I can't see it, I think City will be champions.


{Ed001's Note - I don't do predictions mate, far too superstitious. There is still a lot of football to be played though and I think both teams have the capability to lose points. Pep was not brought in to win the Premier League, he was brought in to win the Champions League.}

I fancy us to win, no neymar and cavani is likely to miss also. Meunier is a doubt and with an aging Alves as their rb we'll have a field day down the left flank with martial IMO. Mbappe is quality but I think he's the only real threat. If we can contain him and get to Paris with a couple goals and a clean sheet I see us progressing.
