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.


4.) 11 Feb 2019 11:48:31
Poch to chelsea?


5.) 11 Feb 2019 12:16:50
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.

When you play kante as an atracking cm there is the 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 wish Lukaku all the best. and I hope solksjaer does really well with the mix bag team we have.

For 6 seasons now we have tried and failed and I remain optimistic for this season. What Pogba will we have playing and Is Dave the Save here or his hands elsewhere? We have a solid defence to be happy with and a Mid that can absorb some pressure but lacks creativity to play the ball forward. We sold Lukaku without replacing him? That 70 mill could of bought a creative Mid and contributed to scoring goals.

The positives were the Ed's who were great this TW? Their knowledge is remarkable and valuable well done. The fact 002 calls MUFC Amateurs says it all. The rest of the PL teams can do 2 or more transfers easily together and equally by paying the asking or close to it with a lot less money than MUFC

So why do we dance around transfers and try penny pinch players We must have clowns working behind the scence.

BF value is 64.5 million fred cost 55 and can't lace his own boots so for the extra 10 million I'd buy him twice over. Especially as a certain team mate of his wearing blue is playing some great footy? I don't know maybe if his asking was 100 million we might of signed him.

2 possible defenders out the door and both collapsed. I would of loved to see Smalling go to everton and Marcus Rojo too but we can let all fergie's buys leave? Maybe that's the curse we need to get rid of

Anyway enough gloom forget the doom on to Sunday for the match.


 

 

07 Aug 2019 02:05:05
Its seems only grim understood my point

ED002 United won the EC in 67 68 season. I QUOTED 68 69 for a valid reason. Liverpool have just won the EC so this season they should progress further as an improvement

67"68 We win the EC and finished 2nd. so technically we should improve and finish 1st and go far on the EC

This went the total opposite and we were abysmal finishing 11th.

The main point is were spoilt by success and suffering from not winning the league for 6 seasons is making it all toxic.
The fans in the 60s and 70s were real fans not the shower we have today

That plus players are not showing up or trying to push for moves.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you are talking about - it was 50 year ago and the analogy is nonsense.}


1.) 07 Aug 2019 07:46:45
I'm very confused right now reddevilfan 😂.


2.) 07 Aug 2019 08:58:13
It was less nonsense before you tried to explain😂😂😂.


 

 

03 Aug 2019 05:42:36
He's Harry Maguire
And he's on fire
Leaving you in suspence
Commanding our defence
For HARRYS a red
Who scores with his head
At 6ft 4 its harry we adore
Now get up to the box
Watch him score some more.


1.) 03 Aug 2019 09:05:58
Big fat NOPE.


 

 

01 Aug 2019 19:24:22
Arsenal show interest and sign a player outside the uk in a week.

We MUFC show intrested and haggle a bit. then a bit more. then a bit more. etc

And after 3 weeks still can't sign a player in the UK.

Now is that just because Arsenal don't hive their players image rights and bonuses etc.


1.) 01 Aug 2019 19:30:14
Who said transfers were easy. I wo dear how long Lille were in talks with clubs over Pepe.

Why the obsession about how other clubs sign players.

It takes along as it takes.


2.) 01 Aug 2019 19:39:40
united like to occupy the media spotlight. Arsenal could have been working on the Pepe deal for much longer but just kept quiet about it.


3.) 01 Aug 2019 20:11:50
IM7 how much has been said in public re deals by MUFC?


4.) 01 Aug 2019 20:12:23
The one player I was hoping we would sign was fernandes, we must be scouting him 12 months, I hope we get this one over the line.
I wouldn't be too bothered about dybala.


5.) 01 Aug 2019 20:52:04
It’s because £80m for Maguire is a huge fee and the club are understandably trying to reduce the fee.

There are also many other factors to consider such as does the selling club need the money. I have no idea why people compare transfers because the circumstances are rarely the same.


6.) 02 Aug 2019 01:03:55
MH

So how long is too long. i am not highly fussed about transfers as such but i'd like the men behind the scence? Show some competency.

Real for example had a plan and sorted their team. They also got the pre season in with new lads etc.

My issue is panic buying and overspending due to this very reason! . The other issue is we won't get to see the player settle before matchday. If we had signed all players early they would of got a run in the pre season and had a glimpse of our play. If Bruno and Dybala come on the last day then they will only get 10 minutes a week for 1 or 2 months to try get with the tempo. The 45 min of play for 3 games is a big difference to 10 mins trying to find your place in team.


7.) 02 Aug 2019 01:29:51
You are wasting your time Wazza. We will be assessed as worse than every other club in the top leagues of every European division and our management, owners, fans, dinner ladies will be called out for the sham artists that they are.

Bring back hooliganism and alcoholic players, the golden age of football!


8.) 02 Aug 2019 03:20:51
Pepe will flop.


 

 

27 Jul 2019 12:30:25
Full strength RM team leaked 7 goals? Their is clearly upgrading needed their the problem is.

If RM actively look for defenders they coyld have the chuckle brothers?


1.) 27 Jul 2019 12:48:18
Both of the chuckle brothers are dead but maybe not a bad option.


2.) 27 Jul 2019 12:57:41
There was 3 chuckle brothers one if the original ones is still going strong.


3.) 27 Jul 2019 12:55:51
Remember Ed002 said he expects AM to be the most strengthened side at the end of this summer transfer window. Looking at the match i guess he is spot on again. Cheers Ed002.


4.) 27 Jul 2019 13:09:22
I am amazed Madrid haven't gone for any decent defenders like koulibaly or dias.
They are very short at the back.
Ramos I think has past it.
Only varane is a decent defender.
Both carvahal and Marcelo are attack minded, that's why concealed lot of goal last season.

Any signing Pogba won't solve that issue😄.


5.) 27 Jul 2019 18:44:13
It would be delicious if Pogba went to Madrid and they had a poor season, he’d clearly need a fresh challenge at the end of the season.

Did ed002 not tell you a while back we were not looking into player swap deals as it becomes messy. I believe Mr Varane has a bad injury record so 80m No thanks.

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.

I agree with all that DodgyBanter!

" Here Here "

To Harry taking the chance and let's hope he takes it with Hands to prove his worth amongst all the negative fault finding critics! .

Lets hope the back 4 gel quickly? They are the last line of defence! If they put in the work for the club, Manager and Fans? But most importantly work on their own abilities and techniques etc

Enough of the Rambling.

Welcome Harry.

Correct Noucamp

By heavy pockets i meant he had the inter players in his pockets he was defending against for 60 mins and even Skirnar ( Spelling ) got annoyed and kicked him down


Cracking player.
