Spending x y and z on high profile players has left us wanting and not getting value for money so to speak.

Sometimes I think to myself, we would of been better off buying players who are premiership proven and don't cost too much. The high price tag and expectations really seem to knock our players wind out,

Jose holobas, Ryan Fraser, idrissa Gueya, Raul jimenez and Ben Mee.

These players could easily do better than some players at MUFC and cost far less than most recent signings.


1.) 17 Feb 2019 17:00:29
Disagree but fail to give your opinion.

I suppose our players are the best in their position yes? Holobas and Raul Jimenez have been playing with heart for the their team and manager ALL SEASON. Idrissa Gueya stats are all higher than NM go check it out Ryan Frasier has been a stand out midfielder for AFC Bournemouth ad Ben Mee is a left centre ex MC player head and shoulders above Jones at left centre.

So state your disagreement.

Looks like 4th might be securable after all.

That and sarri getting Sacked at 6.30 tonight.


1.) 10 Feb 2019 18:57:53
I don't know what's happening at Chelsea its a right mess, if they sack sarri it's back to square one again.


2.) 10 Feb 2019 22:34:22
Lampard will take over next season if he gets Derby promoted. I am sure they will follow the United lead for some positivity.


3.) 11 Feb 2019 09:53:35
Grant or Hiddink for caretaker then they'll look for whoevers the top rated coach in Europe and ruin him.

That would be funny and solves that issue.

Jose return?


7.) 12 Feb 2019 08:19:09
When you allow the players to determine who they play for and who they don’t there is always potential for anarchy.

Lol jred. Both red mans and your own are true.

But that's he culture that Chelsea have created Red man and I think it's too far gone now to be reversed in the modern game.


 

 

31 Jan 2019 09:04:26
With fellani off the payroll, Ed is now willing to offer Martial an increase from 120k to 195k to sign a new 5 year contract and D. De Gea will get a nice 100k weekly top up if he signs a new 5 yr contract too.

Happy days ahead.


 

 

23 Jan 2019 23:00:49
Their may be 15 games to go that decide our final league position and I'm a little bit worried to say the least. CS is a liability in the box and PJ lacks the tools to be a decent defender. I wish Bailly took the chance to get back into the team due to the fact that the LCB position is our wekest point in the team.

We should be going all out to get Kalidou koulibly in the team but we will twiddle our thumbs and watch klopp sign him up and kick ourselves for not signing him.


1.) 24 Jan 2019 03:39:06
Kalidou is happy where he is, and not available for transfer for now.


2.) 24 Jan 2019 12:15:39
He is the obvious choice at CB, strong in the air, great with the ball at his feet and prefers to operate as the left hand centre back.

Yet, making this transfer in January without a full time manager was never going to happen. He will cost a club record fee for a defender possibly for any player.

You don't break club record fees for a player while you don't have a manager. If the next manager doesn't want him then the club have wasted loads of money and look very foolish.


3.) 24 Jan 2019 13:32:33
Bailly has never played LCB, he always plays on the right of the two.

We can't pin our hopes on the accident waiting to happen that is Bailly. If Arsenal are interested we should let him go, as Arsenal/ Europa League is his level.

As Kenedy said, Koulibaly seems happy where he is as has been mentioned by 002 more than once.

If we're to push on and challenge then we need to prioritise an established CB with experience of winning titles, and move Bailly, Rojo and Jones on to clubs suited to their level.


4.) 24 Jan 2019 14:24:57
Correct me if I'm wrong but hasn't Lindelof been starting LCB and been playing well?

I think the issue is finding a RCB to partner him.


5.) 24 Jan 2019 14:57:55
Lindelof played on the LCB under Mourinho but looks much better on the RCB where has been played by Ole.


6.) 24 Jan 2019 15:23:35
Koulibaly maybe unsettled in Italy because of the continuous racist attacks.
At 27, he would be a brilliant top class addition to our team. He could have similar impact which Van Dijk did at Liverpool.


7.) 24 Jan 2019 19:09:03
If there is any truth to the ongoing speculation then surely a punt on the £30m Alderweireld at a quarter of the price is the way to go? A proven top Prem defender whose absense would put a chink in Tottenham’s armour too.


8.) 24 Jan 2019 19:59:55
Spenno, I wouldn't be upset if we brought in Alderweireld. I do have two slight concerns with him though. Firstly his injury record recently hasn't been great, and at his age that is unlikely to improve. Secondly he is exclusively a right sided CB, which is the same as all our CB's bar Rojo. So that would mean one of our current CB's would have to play in their weaker position. Which isn't ideal.

That being said Alderweireld is an excellent CB.


9.) 25 Jan 2019 10:46:37
If Kouilably isn't available maybe we can enquire about his National team's CB partner Salif Sane (I know he just join Schalke this season but . ) or Jonathan Tah.


10.) 26 Jan 2019 06:45:38
I thought Bailly took a good step forward against Arsenal last night. He and Lindelof May still prove to be a good combination. Both are still on the young side for CB’s.
An experienced (though not old) CB would still be a good addition.
Then try Tuanzebe as the 4th, Smalling as a last resort.


11.) 26 Jan 2019 18:37:42
Only a handful must watch our games. I'm well aware Lindelof played LCB but that was under Mourinho. KenedyAndy is aware of my point

Lindelof is playing RCB now and Jones was LCB and was a liability hence me saying LCB is our weak point. It seems some posters would rather find argument or flaws on this site for any reason.

We are playing after Mourinho so my comments are present in position not asking for judgemental biased views poking posters with stick

As 002 would say RTFP and proof read h5y to think through.


 

 

20 Jan 2019 21:51:01
I guess it's a conditioning and fitness issue that becomes more and more of a struggle to hold on to the leading score.

It is more likely down to mourinhos out dated game where we were becoming stagnated in our play. The sideways and backwards play meant no pressing and less work rate so fitness levels need to be drastically improved.

Enough gloom and doom 7 wins from 7 well done Ole GGMU.


1.) 21 Jan 2019 06:05:24
Yes, the intensity of our pressing drops down drastically after the hour mark.
Hopefully, it gets picked up gradually over the coming months.


2.) 21 Jan 2019 09:37:24
There are several issues when settling into a new style of play.

For us we have gone from a team that runs the least to attempting to press higher and more frequently. That level of fitness isn't something that comes out of thin air and will take time to build up.

Also attacking patterns and combinations which just didn't happen before will have to be worked on, improved and perfected.

February is a tough month, we have been fortunate that we have had a run of games which on paper at least are easier to practice and improve. Over the next month we will see what this squad and this manager is truly capable of.


3.) 21 Jan 2019 11:13:27
Lingard and Herrera are two that work their bollocks off and then drop off mid way through the second half in games. I hope that Sanchez can seamlessly fit in to the fluid front three and that will alleviate one problem, Fred should likewise be able to dovetail in the midfield but he's only shown flashes of promise thus far. If both of those start playing like we know they can then we should be able to blitz teams for 90 minutes. Sadly, as Gary Neville said in commentary vs Spurs I don't see where Lukaku or Mata fits in to it.


4.) 23 Jan 2019 20:12:27
Thanks everyone for your posts. In time the fitness will get better.

I guess the players are thinking to themselves " I won't win anything here at Utd, I better move on to win trophies" TBH if that's their thinking then off you go cause 1 player does not win games nor does 2 or 3? Yes they can have a great impact and dictate the play when they are bothered to turn up. It won't be the wordt thing to get rid of the negative footballers and replace with more fluid and guile. OLE needs to do some conditioning work with the players also! Its common for players to get tired after 70 mins but not when its taken you 30 mins to get out of 1st gear imo.

Who knows if we sign some quick players who can actually beat 1 or 2 then open up pockets of space? We might just get some good out of Sanchez.

Just an opinion i feel 5 years is a long time waiting to find some players and a manager capable of steering the ship and standing up to EW and Co whilst not being a yes man.


1.) 15 Apr 2019 06:20:00
Agree about conditioning work.
Next season, the coaching staff's need to emphazie more on the fitness of the players.


 

 

05 Apr 2019 02:20:17
We have spent app 650m on players since we last won the league. We can be sure it will cost another 600 million to make us competitive again. I just hope we avoid anymore sofa players who take 15 minutes to get into the game and tire after 70 minutes on the pitch.


1.) 05 Apr 2019 07:16:47
It will take that if we continue with our recent approach of big signings but I’d like to see us be more savvy in scouting emerging talent and giving game time to out younger players.

Our club has proved time and again that money isn’t everything, or at least that approach doesn’t work for us.


2.) 05 Apr 2019 09:15:19
We have rarely gone for the big name signing. When we have the results have been very mixed to say the least. Big name domestic signings have more often worked, but big name signings from Europe have more often failed to live up to the hype.

Our best signings have often been lesser known players or youngsters with potential.

We probably should stick with what has worked well in the past.

However, the biggest problem is the scattergun approach we seem to have taken in the last 5-6 years. Where we have some signings that appear to be the managers signings, some that appear to be club signings (Ed Woodward's statement signings), and some signings that seem to have come from elsewhere (players advised to the club) .

This has lead to us having a hugely disjointed squad of players who have been signed by different people to play in different systems and to perform different roles that mostly aren't in synergy.

For example, both Matic and Fred have been signed to get the been signed since we brought Pogba. Yet neither work particularly well with him and both have issues. Fred has poor positional sense which is an important skill for anyone playing with Pogba who tends to drift here there and everywhere. While Matic lacks to mobility to cover for his wandering midfield partner.

The club needs one man deciding transfer targets, one man who works with everyone else, takes their opinions on board but ultimately signs players who fit in with what the club needs on the pitch. Players well suited to the club and the team's needs.

Until that happens our transfer windows will always seems disjointed and without a real plan.


3.) 05 Apr 2019 11:59:32
How will one man decide or how will that happen when you've had 3/ 4 managers in 5/ 6 yrs?

More then ed woodward your managers have been a huge mess.

Except moyes but the likes of LVG and mourinho got huge huge backing breaking transfer records and even taking your wages to completely new level and yet very little to show tho.


4.) 05 Apr 2019 12:04:56
600m to be competitive?
I was watching a well know sports channel this morning that pointed out only city have more points in 2019 than United.
And no one has more points than United since ole took over .
We should of put the game to bed against wolves but if you don't take your chances you don't win games .
But we never and we got beat, second time in 14 league games .
As always massive overreaction on the site, we have had a number of injuries and have a number of players needing a couple of games to get back to form and fitness .


5.) 05 Apr 2019 12:53:51
Agree jred.

I posted something similar yesterday.

The shame with all the managers and money spent is that there was no plan for SAF retiring. If we had kept all the backroom staff and then appointed someone like Giggs etc as Head Coach plus put in place a DoF at the same time. Where could we be now?

All if’s and but’s but we have largely wasted 5 seasons in not progressing back to the top of the table.

We now have someone who understands the club and ultimately the way we need to play.
Ole has got Utd beating the lower teams in the PL and if he had been in charge all season then it is very likely that we would comfortably be in the top 4.

We must stay behind the team and Ole.

If true, the Sanchez transfer may go down as one of the silliest decisions our club has made in recent years.


2.) 27 Mar 2019 09:43:22
I know the figures are probably not accurate but interesting to see no rashford on the list.

He should be a priority to sign up even ahead of de gea or herrera who want to go elsewhere.


3.) 27 Mar 2019 09:44:00
Rashford's new contract could possibly put him in top 5 as well.


4.) 27 Mar 2019 11:10:15
I don't know how reliable the report is but very recently I saw somewhere that Radford earns somewhere around £20k pw. Then reports of Barcelona and Real Madrid being interested in him emerged (which I don't believe to be true myself) . Putting these two things together I am guessing that Radford is going to get a new deal very soon and a massive payrise.


5.) 27 Mar 2019 12:06:39
Rashford is so hot right now.


6.) 27 Mar 2019 20:40:50
Martial 250k? wow, not MOTD fever but I bet Sancho and Hudson Odoi are miles better than Martial in 5 years time. Martial soooo over rated.


7.) 28 Mar 2019 07:47:45
Totally agree fzz.


 

 

28 Feb 2019 01:32:48
I remember when Luis Nani scored a few wonder goals like Fabian Schar's cracker for Newcastle tonight.

I would love to see some of our players score or at least try to score some postage stamps goals.

Pogba tries and managed 1, MR scored from a freekick! Who else do you think has that strike in their locker.

( SANCHEZ can do it, However I believe Arsenal sold/ traded us his identical *colour-blind* twin )

* Colour-blind
unable to distinguish jersey colours resulting in passes to opposition.


1.) 28 Feb 2019 09:13:03
I remember Nani hitting row Z around 90% of the time with his "wonder" shots.


2.) 28 Feb 2019 09:35:30
Matic and Herarra can
Periera and maybe Lindelof have those shots in them.


 

 

18 Feb 2019 19:00:58
If we managed to sign Joao Felix, it would be a massive signing albeit I feel it's a year early. That being said if we waited then Liverpool might get their man and imagine Salah on the right Felix on the left.

Just need to work out if Martial would be happy to play in the right or up front with AS on the right.


1.) 18 Feb 2019 21:43:59
Who is he and why would he be a great signing?


2.) 18 Feb 2019 21:58:14
And where is Rashford playing in this dream team of yours?

5 dislikes for an opinion and question. NOT A RUMOUR just banter. I ask myself why bother.

AJH,

Yes he went to Arsenal with promise of regular football I'm sure the Ed's can give in depth detail of why he went to Arsenal.

Many players dream of playing for their fav club not all get the chance in all honesty! I sure many Championship players who supported MUFC growing up!

Would go through brick walls to play in the first team. It's just too bad 90% won't get that opportunity to because we have too many deadwood, Overweight and Overpaid wasted potential. That only play well when looking for a new contract.

Ed 004

I don't want martial to leave and obviously ZI will force him down the pecking order.

If this happens I would very much rather AM go on loan to another PL club. If AS leaves Arsenal then I would like AM to go on loan there with obvious clauses etc. The Perisic issue is dragging out and highlights MUFC issue with not paying the asking fee at that present time. The 20m increase is on us and hopefully we learn.

{Ed004's Note - But what incentives would Arsenal have to play and develop our youngster? It would probably make more sense to loan him as part of any deal for Perisic.}

He is a die hard Leeds fan, who had been very ill the last few months and the gesture could brighten his day.

Man city players are not distracted by a make shift defence and as soon as they get back on the ball it's sent forward with ease and confidence

Man Utd players have to constantly track back because we fail do do the simple things in defence! When we try to get the ball moving forward? We pass it to the opposition over and over 9 times out of 10 till our forward players drop deep and make an attempt at goal.

When we finally sign players to replace the overrated players who can't pass the ball! We might finally click and score goals.

Not being rude or insulting towards the deceased but I'd hate Juventus to get Liverpool

If their was crowd trouble at least it would only be the supporters of said team involved.

It always bugs me why every other team got banned for 5 years.
