Any interest in pulisic? and is Perisic still out our preferred target for a winger in the summer.



{Ed002's Note - Yes, and there has been a discussion or two but it is unrelated to Perisic. Right now Bale might be more likely than Perisic.}

1.) 06 Feb 2018 14:12:24
Thanks Mate have a good day.

2.) 06 Feb 2018 20:41:40
I really do hope united stay well clear of bale. he's finished now. he's a class act but way too injury prone. i'd like to see pulisic at united. united are trying ed002 is it? you mentioned jorginho isn't uniteds main target to replace carrick, would that be weigl ed002?thanks as always 👍.

{Ed002's Note - All of this has been explained - you seem to want me to keep saying the same things over and over.}

3.) 06 Feb 2018 23:22:07
I'd take Bale all day long. That didn't come out the way I meant it to :)

4.) 06 Feb 2018 23:43:07
No bother sorry ed002 👍.

5.) 07 Feb 2018 01:05:32
No thanks if bale too injury prone. Yes please for Pulisic the guy is mega talented! Apparently he is a united fan as well. Not sure how much that counts for tbh.

6.) 07 Feb 2018 03:54:18
Bale deal will depend on the price considering his Injuries but I would prefer Pulisic, either Weigl or Jorginho would be good to replace Carrick, with another CM that would be good summer.

Would be happy with CB and FB.

7.) 07 Feb 2018 18:21:42
Main mid target is milinkovic- savic.

8.) 11 Feb 2018 12:40:32
From people that actually watch Pulisic, they are saying he is having a very poor season, and should stay where he is to further develop.
Is this a case with some on here, a fancy name over than a normal like name like Gareth Bale?



29 Jan 2018 11:57:55

Are United still interested in a winger or has the search ended with the signing of Sanchez? .

Thanks and a ave a fab day.


{Ed002's Note - Yes they are interested in a winger.}

1.) 29 Jan 2018 14:03:03
oh please let it be malcom / pulisic.

2.) 29 Jan 2018 15:25:28
Not seen much of Malcolm, but I've been a fan of Pulisic since the first time I saw him. Plenty of talant.

3.) 29 Jan 2018 16:39:48
Leon Bailey looks a great young prospect and likes to play from the right to cut back onto his stronger left foot.

4.) 29 Jan 2018 17:13:40
Asensio, Bailey or Brandt would be my pick. I think one of the eds mentioned Malcolm is more of a striker then winger otherwise he wouldve been a great option.



28 Dec 2017 13:44:07

Have we made an decision which winger are we going to go after.

Previous options were

Jose Arnaiz.


{Ed002's Note - there remains interest in Bale and potentially even Peresic.}

1.) 28 Dec 2017 13:58:04
Okay great thanks.

2.) 28 Dec 2017 14:20:15
Shame you didn't even mention the one out of the three that most of us would really like. Typical :)

3.) 28 Dec 2017 16:05:48
Lollll noucamp! . I was going to add him in but couldn't remember his name. 🤣.

4.) 28 Dec 2017 16:37:56
Ed Woody is going for Bale. He's got a crutch sponsor lined up.

5.) 28 Dec 2017 21:59:39
Sorry, Singh, I was aiming that at Ed002, mate. Was referring to Asensio 😀.



12 Oct 2017 09:00:18
Would people be happy if Mourinho signs an extention at the end of the season? .


1.) 12 Oct 2017 11:01:05
Right now we seem to be moving in the right direction. Winning and scoring goals.
But we started off great last season as well and hardly played a top team this season so far.
So let’s wait a little longer on this, I would say.

2.) 12 Oct 2017 13:01:17
Contracts mean virtually nothing in this scenario, we could just pay him off if we wanted him gone as we did with LVG and Moyes. Alternatively he could just walk at any time as he has so much money now. More important for players than managers imo.

I'd just give rolling 1 year contracts anyway. You only want a manager that is happy to work at the club, and why handicap yourself to paying compensation if they aren't good enough or their heart isn't in it? So I wouldn't extend anything long term, just at the end of each season I'd assess the performance and say ok we think you are worth X amount for another 12 months and here are your targets, take it or Grump off! I'd also only pay a nominal basic, but huge bonuses on achieving the objectives. That way a confident manager will back himself and drive it for the big payday. I'd also do that with players, you only want the ones that truly believe they will do as they claim they will.

It will only take a couple of the top clubs to do this and everyone else will fall in line. No longer will wages be out of control for failures, only the best will be rewarded and kids won't be crippled before they start their careers with ridiculous money without delivering anything.

3.) 12 Oct 2017 13:04:18
Yes. You can see the progression of the side and that we actually have a plan for now and the future.
We would all love Sir Alex back but what we now need is stability and so long as Mourinho does not have a 3rd season blow up we will be okay.

4.) 12 Oct 2017 13:57:55
I think we would have a very successful spell in the clubs history if Jose stays for 8-10 years, if we keep improving the quality of players as we have so far under him and continuing to improve the youth system he will leave us in a good position and success on the pitch would relate to even more success financially, i am very excited for the future of our club and think the team is in capable hands.

As Beast says though, contract don't mean a great deal in the current game, although as it stands I can't see a better manager out there for us and can't see a better club out there for Jose so all good as it stands.

5.) 12 Oct 2017 14:25:30
Thanks guys and i feel the same . There isn't any one better out there and he is doing well.

6.) 13 Oct 2017 15:04:50
I agree that contracts be for the manager or the player never dictate whether the manager or player stays or not but what it does ensure is some protection that if they were to go due to their own decision or they were approached by another club, we would get a fairer deal rather than if they only have 1 year left on their contract.

I also think if Mourinho signs an extension it signifies the clubs intent for longevity and consistency with the project which may appeal to future transfer targets. RVP was a prime example who came to play for Sir Alex and was left gutted when he retired the following year.

Unfortunately this doesn't always work, David Moyes, but s a different level, a different beast to Moyes so I think him signing a long term contract is a good signal. I also believe this is the job he will stay in longer than any of his previous jobs, I can see him staying for a good 6 to 8 years at United.



04 Sep 2017 13:57:37
Hi Guys,

I just looked over to the european pages and saw a question asked about Greezman and Diego Cista by Deano which was answered by Ed002.

Here it goes :

Ed002's Note - Atletico Madrid were close to signing Diego Costa on Friday but played up wrecking the deal. Clubs do not generally look to business in January but Diego Costa may be a player they look to again. Griezmann is less likely to move in January than in the summer but with Vitolo available it is perfectly possible that Carrasco might be available - and I am aware of one club who are keen. With Manchester United adding Lukaku and making the dumb decision over Ibrahimovic then the need for Griezmann goes away unless there is a plan to push him out to left wing where he has now transitioned away from. So perhaps Griezmann would be an option for next summer (unless MU again sign Ibrahimovic), perhaps they will look to buy him and waste him on the left in January or perhaps they will look again for a left winger in January - we will have to see. }.


1.) 04 Sep 2017 15:04:34
Play griezmann behind lukaku and miki on the right or vice versa.

{Ed004's Note - I am hoping by January that either Martial or Rashford have nailed down a place on the left and that Griezmann is signed to improve on Mata. That way we would have a bench of probably Fellaini, Herrera, Mata, Rashford/Martial and Ibrahimovic.}

2.) 04 Sep 2017 15:25:04
I think ed2 makes some very good points above.

3.) 04 Sep 2017 16:14:37
Personally I don't see the need for griezmann. We have Miki an Mata foe the number 10. We need someone for out wide.

4.) 04 Sep 2017 16:23:48

Griezmann is better than both of them players.

5.) 04 Sep 2017 17:53:27
I think Carrasco for right wing would be my preference.

6.) 04 Sep 2017 17:57:12
Miki's got how many assists this season and not even playing at full potential.

7.) 04 Sep 2017 18:56:02
Just because we don't have Griezman doesn't make him better than Mkhi and Mata. We've waited whole of last season for Mkhitaryan to get familiar to the league and it doesn't make sense to shift him to the right for someone who isn't even at the club. Who knows what will happen till next summer. Maybe Monaco produce one more world class player and we go all out for him rather than Griezman.

8.) 04 Sep 2017 20:08:57
If miki adapts to pur leage and plays to his best he will be a top top player.

9.) 04 Sep 2017 20:13:18
I don't see the point on splashing 100 mill on a fancy name when we'd have to move players around to accommodate him. Moving Miki turns him into another square leg in a round hole. Something I thought we as fans had had enough of the last few years and wanted to move away from. And not something Jose would be likely to do. Instead we'd be better off in signing a genuine singer or two.

10.) 04 Sep 2017 20:26:35
I hear Adele is available mort 😁.

11.) 04 Sep 2017 20:29:13
Good thinking Mort. Would improve the Christmas Karioke no end 😂.

12.) 04 Sep 2017 21:40:03
Play her in goal, nothng would get past her.

13.) 04 Sep 2017 21:56:06
Less of the body-shaming, Tony!

14.) 05 Sep 2017 09:34:38
If micki has a good season why spend a fortune on griezmann. Would rather spend the money on a quality wide player ( not bale) and also look at improving our full back options.

15.) 05 Sep 2017 10:08:14
Think it's pretty simple tbh if the manager thinks we need him he will try for him if not he won't.
I think the days of us buying players unnecessarily are over.

16.) 05 Sep 2017 10:31:53
Watched a lot of miki b4 he came to us and altho its a different league, he is immense when he's on form!

If he can hit that form in the epl he will be phenominal for us leaving no need for grease-man.

17.) 05 Sep 2017 13:49:37
When a great player like Griezmann becomes available and asking for the MU move (If true), then you sign him. Worry about where to play him afterwards. He'll clearly replace Mata in the side. However it's a squad game and I'd rather lose Ibra in the squad and sign Griezmann. I think then we are as good as any side in Europe on paper.

18.) 05 Sep 2017 16:11:46
He had his chance to move and blew it. We have higher priorities.

And by all accounts our kareoke is shocking.

19.) 05 Sep 2017 21:34:43
I usually agree with Ed002, but was Ibra really a dumb decision? Cost no transfer fee, will show up at a time in the season when the squad needs reinforcements but he won't be cup-tied like every other great player. I agree that starting next summer I'd rather let Zlatan leave if it means making space for a player like Griezmann, but to call it a stupid move, bc it might have stopped us from signing a cup-tied player in January? Simply don't agree.

{Ed002's Note - Stifling other players, stopping MU buying another stiker and costing enormous amounts of money. It was a dumb decision.}

20.) 05 Sep 2017 22:53:43
But wouldn't buying another striker, also on big wages have stifled the same players and also be a dumb decision.

21.) 06 Sep 2017 08:52:57
I agree Mort, that honestly is the first time have heard someone say resigning (which was always the plan) Ibra was a bad move.
Proven player, great impact, different dimension, vast experience.
No doubt he'll understand he cannot walk straight into the team and we know where he can play.
Had we signed a new player, we would have so many unanswered questions.

22.) 07 Sep 2017 20:12:08
Totally agree melwing.

16 Feb 2018 20:40:56
I think the main issue is central defence.

Once Bailly is fit we would have a better midfield infront.


1.) 16 Feb 2018 21:04:58

Having bailly back we will be less likely to concede, it doesn’t make our midfield any better.

2.) 16 Feb 2018 21:06:47
I think the issue is that Matic looks absolutely knackered.

3.) 16 Feb 2018 21:12:08
It might make them more confident anf comfortable knowing they wouldn't concede easy goals. It will also let the midfielders play with more freedom.

4.) 16 Feb 2018 21:13:10
That is also true matic does look tired abd we really need new midfielders in the summer.

5.) 16 Feb 2018 22:03:38
Issue has been cm for months .
There can't be a team in the top 10 that let's the opposition get at there cbs as much as we do .
Our attack is just the from 3 players .

6.) 16 Feb 2018 22:36:00
Issue is the way we are asked to play and players like Young starting ahead of Shaw is another major issue and sums up the mindset.

Midfield drops too deep, is too slow to support the attack. CB's are uncomfortable on the ball. Attackers aren't on the same wave length, turn up 1 week vanish the next.

There are zero relationships forming on the pitch, (can anybody tell me about a positive partnership forming? ), every game is like a bunch of strangers rocking up. There is no pattern to the play, almost like there is no offensive plan, just purely working on defensive aspects of the game I assume (and not looking too hot at that whenever a team attacks us) .

We have the players, the manager is just not using them properly, I also don't think he is preparing them properly. We look unfit, reluctant to work off the ball, slow to react to second balls and unaware of where to be when we get into a dangerous position.

Frankly it's a shambles almost every game. You could have Roy Hodgson managing us and we would be getting the same results and performances. Tools are being used incorrectly. I appreciate we are 2nd in the league blah, blah, blah, but we haven't even left 3rd gear this season and as for enjoying the spectacle, are we even meant to enjoy watching Utd anymore it feels like it has been banned?

7.) 17 Feb 2018 00:05:19
We have only conceded 3 goals this year.

8.) 17 Feb 2018 00:09:00
It's about scoring goals for me and I assume most Man Utd supporters.

9.) 17 Feb 2018 02:34:37
Does your wife beat you, Beast? If i were this unhappy i would have stopped watching United. Try it for a bit buddy.

10.) 17 Feb 2018 06:14:23
WRD, Matic looks knackered because he played pretty much every game. Let’s give Carrick a game or 2 and give Maric a well earned rest.

11.) 17 Feb 2018 08:44:58
In answer to Singh I think there is an element of a shaky central defence affecting midfield a little. If the midfield have to look over their shoulders and lack even a little confidence in the centre of defence it will affect their play, just like a defence with a shaky keeper, anyone who has played those positions will know that. Improve our central defence and midfield will improve as they start to face in the right direction, forwards. SAF built teams on a solid central defence, which we lack. The spine of the team isn’t strong enough yet, including midfield but midfield would be better with an improved central defence.

It will be no surprise that I disagree with Beast on most of his rather negative points, except about Shaw who should, unless carrying an injury, play ahead of Young.

The question is why there is a lack of intensity in some players, to me it looks like the 70’s and 80’s where players are choosing when to put an effort in and usually it is in the cups. SAF would move a few on to get a point over and I hope Jose does the same.

12.) 17 Feb 2018 09:57:45
Agree Tony, hoping he gets a rest today, play Carrick or McTominay.



09 Dec 2017 00:23:56
I love it.

Mourinho r. e. - I don't like this about city, A little bit of wind and they fall.


1.) 09 Dec 2017 01:38:11
I've always felt that watching Pep's teams. They act like they have a divine right to keep possession, when they lose the ball they go down very easily. I suppose it could just be that I watch them boring everyone to death and wish for someone to just jump in scholes stylee and get amongst them 😂.

2.) 09 Dec 2017 04:00:31
City many be a lot of things, Dodgy, but I don't think boring is one of them, mate.

3.) 09 Dec 2017 12:36:45
Barcelona players used to go down very easily and I think guadiola has told his players to do the same. Problem is they do it in a clever way and refs fall for it.
Other problem is we have Michael Oliver in charge and he's probably the worse choice for us.

4.) 09 Dec 2017 13:30:31
Barca were very boring. Used to nod off watching them.

5.) 09 Dec 2017 20:46:52
I get bored by them at times Nou, in the same way that Steve Davis was boring in the 80's. The monotonous inevitability that they will score a goal in the end. Just lulling the opposition to sleep, backwards and sideways and backwards and sideways. to me it's almost anti football at times.

6.) 10 Dec 2017 00:18:10
Anti-football is what we suffered under LVG, Dodgy. I know what you mean, but I'd watch City if they were on the tv this season. Never did that before. I'm a football fan as well, and, last few games apart, some of their stuff this season has been great to watch.



23 Oct 2017 20:14:33

I hope all is well with you.

Do you think Uniteds recent results are anything to worry about.


{Ed001's Note - not really, every team has a blip, it is a bit early to start worrying. The only real worry is Jose, if you ask me. If he is up for it, really wants to make it work in Manchester, then the team will respond in the next few games and results will improve. If he is in a sulk, then yes, the results will become a problem. Right now it is just 3 games with 1 draw, 1 win, 1 loss, so hardly worrying.

Performances though, well that is what you expect from Jose's team, so you just have to suck it up when it happens. His teams always go through these spells, usually they sneak 1 or 2 nil wins anyway and it is those that win him titles.}

1.) 24 Oct 2017 08:42:02
Ed001; the thing is I don't think he really does want to make it work in Manchester. Living in a hotel, talking about PSG, short term contract, poor player attitudes etc. it all says he's not bothered.

I find bizarre because he is at the pinnicle of everything you could possibly want as a professional football manager. Biggest club in the world with a rich history and lots of money. Moreover, it's an underperforming team which means he has a challenge and the opportunity to demonstrate just what a good manager he is. It's ripe for him to build a legacy and anyone worth his salt would relish what Jose has.

Except I don't think he is a very good manager; at least not anymore. I think his approach and tactics are dated so he's being found out. I also think his lack of committment and has spread to the players. It's difficult for them to be motivated if they can see the manager isn't bothered. Furthermore, he's shown that he doesn't have much confidence in his players so we can't be surprised if they lack a little confidence in themselves.

He would have been the ideal appointment straight after Fergie. He has the ego not to have wilted under that kind of pressure like Moyes did and to be fair he's a lot better manager than Moyes. Three years under Mourinho then a manager more suited to Utd for the long term would have been ideal.

At the start of this season he looked happy, relaxed and up for it. Now, I can't wait for him to go and it's not even November. Ta ra Jose.

2.) 24 Oct 2017 09:36:39
Ah thanks ed,

I hope its just a blip like you said and the players pick themselves up and start performing.

3.) 24 Oct 2017 09:59:55
I think the fact his family are not living with him shows how deep his longer term commitment is or rather is not. If he really saw himself being at Utd for 5 or more years no way would he be living apart from them in a hotel.

4.) 24 Oct 2017 10:09:04
I think too much is being made of Jose living in the Lowry.

His career history suggests he isn't going to be here in the long term. He has never stayed anywhere for more than three years maximum.

He has kids who are finally settled in London. These kids have had to endure moves from Portugal to England, then to Italy then Spain now back to London.

His children have never had a settled life due to his work. Now his children are at important ages from an educational view point making them change schools again just isn't the right thing to do as a parent.

So if his kids have to stay in London then his options are either rent a house/ apartment and rattle around it alone all week or stay in a hotel where it would probably be easier to socialise.

As for the fluttering his eyelashes towards PSG. That is classic Mourinho. First off he was being interviewed in France, they were highly likely to ask him about whether he would want to work with the biggest club currently in France. Secondly he is coming up to halfway through his current contract, at the time the team was playing well and had some very good results. So in Jose's mind it was the perfect time to put a little pressure on Woodward to secure himself a contract extension.

Contract starting to run down, team playing well and getting results, other top teams maybe showing an interest.

The downturn in recent performances I feel is down to injuries exposing the flaws in our squad. Yaz, on the others page has written a great post on our recent drop off in performance level. Without Pogba playing through balls early we lack quick penetration. Our lack of quality wide players is being highlighted. This is exasperated by our recent injuries in defence upsetting our previously stable defence and Lukaku carrying a knock and not quite looking as fresh as he did in the early games this season.
Our injuries are right through the spine of our team which is our strength, we are now relying on our weaker areas to pick up the slack and they are failing. A lack of quality wide players is our undoing atm.

5.) 24 Oct 2017 12:00:27
Shappy, are you part of Mourinho's PR team or something?

No one's expecting Jose to move his family if they are settled in London or Paris or the moon or wherever but living in a hotel for three years is not OK. Firstly because it affects his state of mind and he has already said he hates life in Manchester. Well no bloody wonder if you're living in a crap hotel Jose!

Secondly, it tells the players that he doesn't plan on being around very long. Remember what happened when Fergie prematurely announced his retirement?

As for his flirtation with PSG, are you suggesting that because it's just "classic Mourinho" that it's OK? £15 million a year not good enough? It's far from OK and he should have been sacked for it. Also, why would he want a contract extension if he's not planning on staying?

Yes, the downturn is partly due to injuries but then it's up to the manager to whow what he can do with what he has left. Showing some confidence in those players would be a good start.

Honestly, Shappy, please stop excusing the guy; he's taking the michael out of all of us.

6.) 24 Oct 2017 12:42:29
Wow so shappy makes some very valid points but because mancman has his Jose out agenda there all bs. we've had a great start to the season n played good attacking football (which must kill u) but then injuries kicked in to a few vital players n then the players who r meant to replace the injured players get injured. In that time we've played 3 poor games lost one drawn one n won one hardly sackable results. To be calling for his head is stupid and infantile n shooting someone down for answering your posts points shows your only agenda is Jose out. Who do u want to replace him that's gettable?

7.) 24 Oct 2017 13:16:37
Shappy, the PSG flirtation disappointed me. He may be trying to twist the board's arm over finance, but I'm not going to support him playing his petty, ego-driven games at our club. We're Man Utd, one of the biggest clubs in the world, not a little play-thing for José to manipulate for his own self-interest.

8.) 24 Oct 2017 13:28:33
Mancman, if your not going to live with your family then why is living in a hotel suite worse than living in an apartment?

If he had is own apartment he would have to clean it, change the bedding ect or hire a maid. But in a hotel all that is done for him. The only advantage having your own apartment would have would be the ability to cook for yourself. Jose has never proclaimed himself to be a fantastic amateur chef. If he would rather order a take away or go out for dinner rather than cook food for himself then having a hotel room over an apartment just means no kitchen to clean or weekly visits to ASDA to fill up the fridge.

I really don't see why you have a bee in your bonnet over it.

Hell it's the same hotel the ENTIRE team stay in the night before home games. So it's hardly a poor place to stay.

He is unhappy living in Manchester because he misses his family. The are two solutions to this problem, he either uproots his family and disrupts his children's education, or the club moves to London. Neither are really acceptable options so Jose will have to either continue to live in Manchester without his family or quit as manager of Manchester united. Neither are things he wants to do.

I guarantee you the moment Jose no longer wants to be our manager we'll know about it.

I wasn't excusing Mourinho for flirting with PSG. Only stating it is something all managers/ players do when their contracts are running down and they want a renewal. If we sacked/ sold every manager/ player who does it we would struggle to field eleven players in any given match.

Hell most fans felt Fellaini's injury played a big part in us not getting the desired result at Anfield. Yet he has rejected a contract renewal and is unhappy the club refused him the transfer he wanted in the summer. Yet we the fans still want him to play for us.

I don't like it, but then there's many things I have to put up with which I don't like. That's just the way the world is. I've been brought up to never complain about anything I'm not actively trying to change. Which I think is a good way to look at things. If your not trying to fix the problem then clearly you don't care enough about it.

As for being able to get get the team to perform when key players are out injured. Jose has managed to win one lose one and draw one. Hardly awful results. Performances weren't great but they never are for any team when key personnel are missing. If you can get any old player to play like a world class player then no one would chase the world class players. There is a weakness in the squad that has been exposed by multiple injuries, especially those to key players. Any top manager will tell you when that happens results are the only thing that counts. Managers get sacked for poor results not poor performances. You always need to result, if you can put on a performance as well then great. But if all your big performance players are out injured then you go for the result.

If Jose had tried to go for style over substance against Liverpool, Benfica and Huddersfield and we had three losses then you would slate him for not being pragmatic and being foolish to believe he can play that way with some many key injuries.

I was never a fan of having Jose as our manager. I felt he wasn't the right sort of fit for our club. And I still do. But to be fair to the man, he won two trophies in his first season and he has us second only to the highflying high scoring Man City. We have seen 6 games out of 14 where we have scored 4 goals. So let's get off his back and stop this nonsense about sacking a manager 9 games into the league campaign because we are only second place. In any other season we would be clear at the top of the league. Let's give him a chance shall we.

United99, it's fun to have an argument about football. Everyone has an opinion and no one is wrong.

I was delighted at the start of this season with what seemed like a happy relaxed Jose and some decent results, although I'm not sure I would describe it as particularly attacking football.

Then we had a few injuries and the old Jose came back both with his tactics and his demeanour. Then he said he wanted to work somewhere else. Then he told his team they aren't very good. Then we saw the discord and lack of confidence spread throughout the team.

When we had Moyes and LvG, we let it fester in the hope that things would change and they didn't; they got worse because they were the wrong managers for Manchester Utd. The same is true of Jose - he is the wrong manager for Manchester Utd.

To directly answer your question, that nice Mr Ancelotti is out of work.

10.) 24 Oct 2017 13:38:08
Stevie, I'm not happy about it. But that is the way football is now. Footballers do it, and managers do it. It's hardly a new thing either Roy Keane did it years ago. Players are employees, as such they will look after their own interest. How many of us can say if a rival company was going to offer us more money for doing the same job we wouldn't at least entertain the idea?

I was disappointed with Mourinho's comments, but we need to put them in context. He was being interviewed in France, and was asked directly if he would want to work with PSG. He gave an honest answer. He was probably too honest and he was probably aware that his words would be put in the public domain and that would put pressure on the club to offer him a new contract.

It's not ideal but nearly every other manager out there would do the same. As long as his actions don't adversely affect the club, and he is doing a good job then so be it.

Because we aren't going to find a manager who will get better results than Jose while treating the club as a fan would. It's not going to happen, the sooner we stop judging managers and players by what we believe our standards would be with our club the sooner we will be at peace with life.

A simple, 'I don't agree', would have sufficed, Shaps 😀.

12.) 24 Oct 2017 16:38:56
You know me Stevie, why use three words when I can use a five hundred. Lol.

13.) 24 Oct 2017 17:30:55
MancMan is Beastesque in his style but I tend to afpgree and made similar posts yesterday. How committed is he, how happy is he, how focused is he, why are we here, who moved my cheese. Sorry, got sidetracked there.

Shappy, your posts about the hotel are very valid but I think it sends a crappy message out and smacks of short termism. We're not talking about a 6 month stay we are talking 3 years living out of a hotel. Don't know about any of you but I hate hotels and it's not as if he is short of a bob or 2 to buy a rent a nice place that might feel like'home' whilst he is here.

My biggest worry is that he has been overtaken by more dynamic forward thinking coaches, we shall see if he has been found out. Hopefully he will rise Phoenix like and smite all before him.

14.) 24 Oct 2017 18:41:26
Fair do's mancman and I suppose we all share the love for Utd n want the same thing. I just felt/ feel that the people who didn't want him in the 1st place have used this blip to sound off but it just seems premature to me. As for confidence in the team the managers job is to instil that but also to question players efforts n pull them up on it when there off it. Saturday was the worse I've felt since city pipped us to the prem. it was mainly down to effort that I got annoyed so joses right to call them out n there big boys they should deal with it. Fergie used to go nuts he even sliced becks head open but the players had a respect/ fear of fergie n the way ex players talk abt Jose he has the same vibe. He's a big part of the reason 3-4 of our new signings are here. (Which is not right I'd play for Utd wiv a goldfish in charge) I just think there are mitigating circumstances for our current slump ask the bin dippers if they'd swap our predicament for there's.

Fellaini just got injured not good news for Liverpools game but it would giv3 Herrera a chance to start.


1.) 08 Oct 2017 08:49:46
Rumoured ligament damage could be out for a while.

2.) 08 Oct 2017 11:16:38
Hate these stupid international breaks. We always limp back into the league with them. Herrera will struggle against liverpool's bigger midfielders. I have us now losing the game especially if they have their full squad available for selection.

3.) 08 Oct 2017 12:02:02
Really xfiles, have you not been watching Liverpool of late?

4.) 08 Oct 2017 14:48:59
Fellaini out for 2 week.

5.) 08 Oct 2017 14:55:54

I have watched them all year. They are very capable of running a score at you at home if you are not playing with a full compliment of your team. They need the points, its a huge rivalry and catching us at a time where we are limping into the game. hope i am wrong. let's see.

6.) 08 Oct 2017 14:57:55
Blessing in disguise for the Liverpool game with their fast interplay imo. Herrera will suit it more.

I fancy us to win by at least 2 goals.

{Ed025's Note - big call that beast..

7.) 08 Oct 2017 15:18:36
I'd have started with Herrera, but would have wanted Fellaini as an option. Still a loss. It depends how we start the game. We can score several goals if we commit and don't park the bus.

I suspect Jose will park the bus somewhat. Knowing it does frustrate Liverpool, but if they get first goal then it may be hard changing our game. If we score first then we could pick them off.

For me first goal really could be important in this one.

8.) 08 Oct 2017 15:53:35
Sorry, yeah they are in great form, back 4 looks formidable, scoring goals at will.

Liverpool definite favourites against us especially because we have been so poor of late.

{Ed025's Note - you know as well as i do angel that form goes out of the window for this type of fixture, and as much as i would like to see a utd win i feel that a draw will be a hell of a result against them mate..

9.) 08 Oct 2017 16:23:45
Ed025, no matter how the form is between ourselves and Liverpool, I still get nervous for this fixture. Yes we are a better side, have better XI, better squad, better form, but like you said it means nothing in this fixture. Plus Liverpool always raise their game against the bigger sides. Anyway, let's hope there is no controversial decision and it's a good game.

{Ed025's Note - very much so sydney, i think there will be goals in it but my concern is that uniteds defence has not really been tested yet this season, and with the likes of couts, mane and salah they will pose a real threat mate..

10.) 08 Oct 2017 16:24:07
I think the pressure will be on them to attack, which is precisely what we need. The reason we have smashed teams despite playing poor (compared to what we are capable of), is because our opponent has to try and get a goal back and we capitalise. As the home team and being much better going forward they will over commit and we will mop up against their woeful defence.

I am assuming Jose plays to this and I see no reason why he would change anything.

11.) 08 Oct 2017 16:33:18
Tactically both managers will feel they need to do something.

Klipperty will be desperate to fit in an extremely attacking front five, but will be worried about being caught at the back.

Jose will want to stick to his tried and tested team. But left back is a concern, and Rashford will end up playing as an extra left back.

With the likely Liverpool line up I could almost see us going 352, which sounds overly cautious. but could be a good way of keeping Rashford or Martial further forward. We could bring in Young wide left for Mata to retain some width.

12.) 08 Oct 2017 16:34:14
Herrera isn't a small lad X. I wouldn't say Henderson has a physical advantage over him. Fellaini is a loss but Herrera is a much better footballer than him.

13.) 08 Oct 2017 18:31:00
Matic will be key. Sitting in the space Coutinho will look to attack. Our Center backs should handle Firminho and Tony V and I assume it will be Young will need to keep showing Mane and Salah to the byline. Our attack should cause so a lot of problems for them. I'm optimistic for three points.

14.) 08 Oct 2017 18:32:42
Fellani is a loss for that game, they are bad at the back and more than bad at set pieces.
If we defend well we should beat them.

15.) 08 Oct 2017 19:24:27
Absolutely ed25 but I can not in my right mind say that Liverpool are favourites for this game.

I feel Liverpool are there for the taking mate. Rashford, lukaku, martial, miki etc against their back 4 has my mouth watering.

I think that they are all over the place at the moment and are as disorganised as I've seen them in recent years.

The fact the international break came when it did might be really good for us. They will have less time to prepare for this game.

{Ed025's Note - it will basically be the same for both teams angel, a lot will depend on how jose wants to approach it for me, will he set up defensively and try to hit on the counter or go for it from the start?, i think it may be the former actually but if you let liverpool get the lead and are then chasing the game they will seriously hurt you on the counter mate..

16.) 08 Oct 2017 19:31:53
Herrera is 6 feet tall. Not exactly small.

17.) 08 Oct 2017 19:59:08
I think it's worse for Liverpool pal as they have been struggling for form where as we seemed to have gelled and are in a bit if purple patch. I don't think the break will have hindered us as much.

I think we will set up with a defensive shape to hit them on the counter. With the hope that we take our early chances and Liverpool open up a bit more as they look to create more. That will lead to us having a bit more space as the game goes on.

I just can't see Liverpool really bringing it to us at the weekend. Our front 4 are just too much especially for that defence.

I honestly see us hitting 3 goals past them. I believe we could really do a number on them this time.

{Ed025's Note - i love your optimism mate even though i dont think it will be as easy as you say..

18.) 08 Oct 2017 20:22:05
It all depends ed025 on if we get a chance earlier and put it away. We do That, we could put a few past them.

Maybe I'm being too optimistic but I really think from Watching Liverpool so far they have not impressed.

{Ed025's Note - it bothers me that united have not really played anyone yet angel, you could of course be right and you smash them and i wont be shedding any tears i can assure you, they have not had the start they wanted but beware the wounded animal is all i can say mate..

19.) 08 Oct 2017 20:39:43
I remember the same fixture last season. Liverpool were on frightening form at the time scoring St will. We had drawn I think 2 games in a row and were playing badly. The most popular phrase on the Liverpool site at the time was we will smash them. The situation is now a parallel but I think a repeat result is likely. I wouldn't be surprised if it's another draw.

20.) 08 Oct 2017 21:42:28
I see it as a draw. We never play well there but somehow we manage to get results. 1 all is my prediction.

21.) 09 Oct 2017 10:14:57
It's Jose, so we will play with a back five and use Rashford and Lukaku to break. Wouldn't be surprised to see a 352, that will at times be more like a 532. We will have Martial to bring on when legs are tired. That may be key. I still think first goal is massive in this game. Fellaini certainly would have started and his aerial threat would have scared the sh! t out of the Liverpool defence. Gomes is very rash and is very lucky to be available to play against us. I can see Rashford targeting him and he could struggle if the ref doesn't bottle it. Rashford will draw many fouls and we'll see if the ref punishes them. Mikhitaryan will occupy space between their midfield and defence and will thread Lukaku through, hope he doesn't have a nervous one like he did against Everton early on. Lukaku needs to punish Liverpool with the chances he gets.

22.) 09 Oct 2017 12:48:57
Ah yes the key player. The ref. I'm expecting a bottle job. A disallowed pen. An incorrect sending off and a controversial pen.

23.) 09 Oct 2017 13:09:04
Syd i suspect martial will start this one he is fesh rash played twice for England. But i agree we might see 3 at the back which could be 5 at times.

24.) 10 Oct 2017 17:24:44
I'd be happy with Martial or Rash, even both instead of Mata. I can see that working better if we are playing counter attack.



08 Sep 2017 15:42:52
Mourinho looks to be pissed with Perriera as he went away on loan. Do you guys think there is tension brtween the player and manager? .

Do you guys think Perreira made the right choice in going to Valencia and not fighting dor his place? .

I think the plan was to let go off Fellaini and give Perriera the minutes but as soon as that deal went off, Perriera decides he needs guaranteed time so ended up going to Valencia.


1.) 08 Sep 2017 16:20:45
Was it not Jose and the club that stopped the fellaini deal.

2.) 08 Sep 2017 16:30:00
Obviously not that pissed. They offered him a new contract after he went on loan.

3.) 08 Sep 2017 17:47:31
Agreed angel. Valencia are a good side too and if he can step up and play for them all season, there's no reason he can't come back and challenge next season as a 22 year old with some good experience under his belt.

4.) 08 Sep 2017 18:33:57
Fellaini doesn't want to be at the club. He tried to move last jan he tried to move in the summer so you have to admire his professionalism and attitude. He has continued to give his all and trys his best in every game. I wonder will be get a new contract offer or will be be allowed to go on a free.

5.) 08 Sep 2017 20:29:53
He was told he needs to play regular for world cup .
Think he is 30 this year would make sense for him to look for regular footy and decent contract next summer imo.
Club must have a plan tho strange to keep a player in the last year of his deal.

6.) 08 Sep 2017 20:52:07
Agree jred that's what i'm wondering will they soccer him a new contract. I suppose if he was playing regularly he wouldn't want to move at all but he displays great attitude i admire that as opposed to way vvd couthino or costa have behaved.

Goos post Beast and i reckon we houdlve gone for the kill today as i hope but Jose played it safe which is quite sad considering how poor Sevilla were today.

The players look scared to try something exciting ncase it doesn't work and jose gets angry.

They are all under strict rules by the looks of it.

Basically the a whole ne2 defence is needed. I think ww should keep Rojo as a back up and Shaw as someone to rotate with next year.

Ed do you think Young will move on next yeqr or will he still have a part to play as a full back next year.


{Ed001's Note - Jose likes him and would like to keep him, for now at least.}

Its likr selling the next messi and then trying to go buy a next ronaldo because we are noy patient enough.

Completely agree Ed a lot of players seemes like they didn't know what they what to do when in attack it could well have been Jose's instructions to not mess up the game and keep it alive for when they come to Old Trafford.

It waa a typical Jose performance which i hoped wouldn't have been thr case as i prrdicted goals in this match.

I thought there eere a few positives to take out of the game, Lindelof made a few good tackles, scott looked very good for a 21 year old and Matic looked good as well and oh yeah David De Gea you beautyy! .

Lukaku didn't really have support and his touch was poor, Sanchez looked like he had no one to play with.

The rest did okay and Pogba looked initially looked like he was restricted but he grew into the game.

Top post that Shappy, these players arr role models to a lot of young kids and i wouldn't really want my kids watching that sort of crap in a football match especially from a player of that level.

We don't live in 1990s or 1980s, these guys get paid a lot of money so for them act in that manner is totally unacceptable.
