Haven't been on here that long and I pick up the eds and the posters find a lot of sources as very dubious and not reliable but a couple mentioning bale may like a return to England and would prefer a move to utd over Chelsea, anything in this or twaddle .


{Ed001's Note - according to those that know the lad very well, family, friends and former and current coaches of his, at least the ones I have managed to speak to, they all say he has no interest in leaving Spain and is really happy there. Unless Madrid want rid, which I have not heard of any genuine talk of that being the case just yet, it is highly unlikely he will be moving this summer. Money may talk I guess, but this is his dream, playing for Madrid.}

Cheers mate, greizmann it is then hopefully if bale a none starter, damn talk sport building my hopes up.

It's looking like ed has it correct about belotti as striker, Kane, a king's ransom, Sanchez realy doubt arsenal would give us him, aub Paris bound, lewandowski not for sale, benzema, too worried he has a secret camera, greizmann the new gaitan and lukaku yo-yoing bk and forth to Chelsea.
If reports city scared by Mendy's price I can't decide if we do it we are just a bigger club than city or to dumb and will pay anything .
With paying so much for pogba I hope in away games or against quality teams we play 433 but the right side attacker worries me Mata lindgard and miki all decent but look out of position, with greizmann unlikely now who would people like to play there.


1.) 06 Jun 2017 23:34:17
i said the other day all our targets are dissapearing we are doomed i tell you doomed and do not tell them you're name daz oh whoops.



03 Jun 2017 23:11:57
Horrible result for utd tonite. The consensus is CB, lb, one midfielder but I'd argue two, right side attacker, Madrid answer most questions varane, Marcelo, kroos, bale and the exception fabinho. Let's hope they want de gea bad as we could realy do with a few of there's . Before I take incoming neuer is the world's best GK. And Chelsea would have won the league with Kasper, butland, lloris or even Czech, courtois didn't need a special season to win it, the most important transfers to utd may not even involve them . mbappe and hazzard to Madrid. Meaning the cash off bale, kroos and varane has meaning . I may be optimistic if they had lost to juventos it was more likely.


1.) 03 Jun 2017 23:29:34
What in God's name are you talking about? The post made no sense whatsoever. Sorry.

2.) 03 Jun 2017 23:47:52
Sorry schm that u wouldn't like to see varane in defense, kroos in midfield or bale supporting the attack your correct in god's name what am I talking about.

3.) 04 Jun 2017 00:21:24
Hi Slate. The original post didn't make sense. But agree with you that we consider ourselves the biggest club in the world, but in footballing terms, we're 4th division compared to Real.
You're right, it makes for depressing watching.
Congratulations to Real as they have shown what a great team they are.

4.) 04 Jun 2017 00:46:16
Nah scm my point was real are not going to deal with us if we don't involve de gea they are rich to . they would like de gea and I'm guessing we would like a few of there's, because of their success they may not want to deal . I'd hate to lose de gea but if the whole team were overall strengthened so be it . My point was if they were to buy de gea, hazard and mbappe then they may need to recoup some money, making utds chances of landing bale kroos or varane better, I apologise if my original post was unclear.

5.) 04 Jun 2017 06:15:06
I will never understand this notion of selling ddg to strengthen the team, we are not everton or liverpool folks, we can get good players without having to sell our best player. How does weakening our defence to improve our attack or midfield improving the team, it is robbing paul to pay peter.

6.) 04 Jun 2017 07:18:06
I get the point, I like DDG but I don't think it's the end of the world if he leaves and we get big money for him.

7.) 04 Jun 2017 09:17:00
Real will deal with us because we have more money than sense, are willing to hand them large sums of it, more so than any other team. Their results are totally irrelevant.

8.) 04 Jun 2017 10:24:21
Horrible result for utd tonight! That's why it doesn't make sense to start off with.

Then you proceed to state we really need Madrid players for our team.

There are so many players that United could target that would fill the voids that you mentioned.

9.) 04 Jun 2017 11:08:41
Keeping Ddg and signing quality players from other teams is the only way forward in my humble opinion. Sets a precedent that we are not interested in selling our best players and signals intentions of building a team to compete with Europe's elite. With the financial backing no reason why mourinho can't have us as challengers at the top table again. We don't need Madrid cast offs or bargain tools.

10.) 04 Jun 2017 12:00:48
We should try and keep all our best players and buy players that are better than what we have.
Real will only sell us their unwanted players. In truth, I want any of Marcello, Kroos, isco, modric and verane but I don't think we have a chance of getting them. Real want to keep their best players and the players want to be there. It's a fact which we have to live with.
That's why it's imperative we have a good scouting system in place.



01 Jun 2017 15:30:18
A slightly different topic, if England do poorly in the next world cup and brexit negotiations end in no freedom of movement it's highly possible the fa and the prem league are heading for a battle over a foreign player quota . would sides like utd consider this in there dealings or too many IFS and buts. I would have thought even when whispers about it start English players value will soar and foreign players here already their value drop,


1.) 01 Jun 2017 17:44:10
I don't think it will make much difference other than potentially the devaluation of the pound.

The movement of players from Europe will be no worse off than the players from South America, Africa and Asia.

As for laws enforcing a quota of "British" players, they would fall under the control of the footballing governing bodies and not politicians. I doubt the FA would be keen to weaken their league too much.

2.) 01 Jun 2017 17:45:01
Just to clarify slate its not if England do poorly in the world cup its WHEN England to poorly in the world cup.
I also would say that you can be sure that the Brrxit negotiations will result in many things that will affect the uk population negatively and football as a whole.

3.) 01 Jun 2017 18:36:27
Of course there will be some positives for the uk population aa a result of brexit also.

4.) 01 Jun 2017 18:46:17
The mandate of the fa is England not the prem league, a foreign quota couldn't be enforced because of eu rules and freedom of movement, it was also pointless making non EU work permits harder to get as it wouldn't ensure teams fielded more English players as they couldn't be stopped fielding a team of eu nationals. Each sports governing body work with the government to set work permit criteria, that is the fa not the prem league and the fa want English players playing if the prem league, the prem league may need to have a little give on this or the fa may seek to make permits harder to get.

5.) 01 Jun 2017 18:24:24
I'd imagine the EPL quality players won't have a problem. Immigration is wanted by the UK, it's just the majority of people want the best people to be coming in from abroad to fill jobs we either don't have the skills to carry out or have an absence of numbers to perform.

Footballers are a high value commodity, paying lots and lots in taxes and adding a great deal of value to UK business as well as happyness value to people as they go about their daily lives. It makes no difference where they come from as far as any government is concerned so long as they play by the rules (the rules will not prevent them from coming they will be designed so we attract them and stop the freeloaders that are only coming to the UK for benefits and not work) .

I'd be absolutely amazed if a cap were introduced, furthermore if UK players are not capable then they can play overseas as well. A lot of people have to travel to where the work is if it's a niche business they specialise in. I'd argue UK players have missed the trick not lifting their levels whilst the big-money game is on their doorstep. The FA have been too slow to act and capping foreign players would probably worsen our domestic players overall quality as they wouldn't be competing against the best and it would give them a false sense of how good they really are.

6.) 01 Jun 2017 19:24:53
I agree with u beast but the rights and wrongs of it won't matter, foreign players give a lot of joy and happiness to people but the fa will argue not as much as a successful England team, maybe not to supporters of teams like utd or other big teams but to an awful lot of others . I agree to that a foreign quota may not help the England team at all but I'm pretty sure that won't be the view of the fa and the things that have stopped them being able to enforce a quota may disappear within two years.



31 May 2017 15:34:52
Interesting views on rashford, what do people feel about martial, personally I think we don't have too many who can put people on the edge of their seat but he can, he's a little frustrating but that's because to me the ability is there for him to be a bit special.


1.) 31 May 2017 15:54:26
Martial > Rashford.

2.) 31 May 2017 17:03:09
Martial up top for me.

3.) 31 May 2017 17:03:36
Although I'd be delighted if we get Morata.

4.) 31 May 2017 17:24:13
If he seriously wants to develop into a striker, he should probably be getting his agent to get on the phone to dortmund, take a paycut and then move to a top club in a few years time.



27 May 2017 20:22:47
What a fantastic site guys . The Mrs thinks I've got a fancy woman when I keep sneeking on my phone to defend our CBS . Yeah yeah she she says why the dodgy name, I've told her u go on there and say smallings not that bad and you'll wish u changed name aswell .

If there was an acceptance ddg was leaving it would be a big call not to take kroos if it shown to be possible, played for some good sides but made them better a serial trophy winner, you'd need a pretty special side not to fit him in, not realy a destroyer though but offers massive control of a game against good sides to imo.

Danny IL try and offer a view as why a few struggle with morata price . What's causing his valuation people don't see it in his record, sub then 15 in two seasons at juventos then back to Madrid bench again, nobody saying he's a bad player . Is valuation because there's fierce competition for him forcing the price up, maybe but haven't heard much about that . Or finally is price seeming so high cause they don't want to sell, but they seem fairly keen to negotiate if that's the case, maybe they are only willing to negotiate because it's to good a deal for them not to . Personally I'd walk away explore other options and see if there stance changed a little if all interest went because of the price . Hopefully figures of 70 or 80 million is wild paper talk.

Agree weggy walk away if there's any truth in 80 million we are trying to compete with real Madrid not finance their next superstar by buying there sub. Who else is going to give them anywhere near that, call there bluff and walk away or change target . I'd rather poke up Torino than real Madrid.

I'm not sure how finishing a country mile behind Chelsea then buying a player off them who they think can be improved upon helps us close the gap . I'd go for kroos I know he's not a dier or matic type but he's so much better than them. A midfield playmaker in the scholes of later years . A midfield 3 of kroos pogba and Herrera as good as any if coached well.

Fit and on form bale is one of a few players who could run riot in the prem league . Greizmann is unavailable this window but we could target him next year . Greizmann behind a striker with bale right and martial or rashford left and we would look the real deal a match for just about anyone imo . I get people's worries over his fitness and if medical experts pointed out a serious underlying problem then of course back away but I'd certainly explore it first if it became possible.

For a straight swap yes if bale valued at 90, that would be 72 million profit and lots of good years from de gea and closer to triple than double the price of the world's most expensive goalie.

I'm pretty sure if utd were to outlay that much money they would seek some pretty in-depth medical advice on it, if that advice was he will will miss too much football then yr correct shappy but surely it's something well paid medical professionals would advise on and utd would then choose how to proceed based on it, but if a guy we pay to give us his medical opinion on wether bale has an underlying medical issue or not then says it's ok to proceed then do we just over rule him on our own hunches or accept the advice we pay for .

Could be dangerous that though shappy, a year is a long time in football not all the superclubs will have a good season and may look to splash the money on big players, what if greizmann or dembele get massive interest from other big sides next season and they appeal to these players just as much as utd might . I personally don't think we are good enough to refuse bale if he's available now and not gamble who may be available in a year . We get so many posts on here moaning great players are never available so if and when they are should we not act upon it.
