Even thou was against Fulham, it was good to see us score more than a goal at home. Supporters deserved for too long.

Dalot had a superb game, Rash, Lingard and Lukaku had a very good effort running up and down for the ball.

Every single player played well today.

Shame we hadn't a clean sheet.

Is Herrera career at Manchester United over?

Why he ins't playing more regularly?

With so many players under performing why not use more of Fred, Pereira and Herrera?

If he leaves I hope he finds a great club, he's very professional and cool guy.

Herrera is a squad player so is used accordingly I guess. The lad gives his all when he does play and seem to love the club and we do need players of that kind, it’s not all about big names as Pogba has proven, I known hich one i'd prefer in my team, but that’s how far we are away, Herrera probably is a very good squad player yet he’s more effective than our so called star names.

2.) 09 Oct 2018 10:06:57
He has been injured in recent weeks and so that is why he has not figured.

A squad player but if fit should probably get more game time while Matic is so poor.

3.) 09 Oct 2018 12:15:42
I’ve always felt Herrera is a more consistent performer than many of our other midfield players, but he’s under 6ft, so can't expect him to be first choice. I think Fred will find himself in the same predicament.

4.) 09 Oct 2018 19:05:07
Although we don’t know the reasons it is concerning that we spend over £50M on a midfielder in the summer and then he seems to spend a large amount of time on the bench.

I thought in recent games his speed and energy was much needed in the midfield. I was crying out for him against Valencia.

Don’t know how we expect players to bed in when we don’t give them game time.

Just very frustrating feel that Dalot and Fred could both play more with how poor we have been playing.

5.) 09 Oct 2018 19:56:53
Danny, Herrera if exactly 6ft. Smlow Motion; I'd love to see a midfield of Fred, Pereira and Herrera. Plenty of pass and move with those three.

6.) 09 Oct 2018 20:35:51
That’s only in heels, he’s 5 11 in his flats.

It's not doom and gloom, we've lost under Fergie too.
This is the type of excuse we use this days.



{Ed025's Note - i tell you what its not SMP...good enough!..

1.) 29 Sep 2018 14:28:17
The excuse would be that this team played a draw with Chelsea last week. So we were supposed to get beaten.

2.) 29 Sep 2018 14:30:27
Time for a change.

3.) 29 Sep 2018 14:37:17
Park obviously our players would be changing their diapers after rubbishting for 90 minutes.

4.) 29 Sep 2018 14:38:23
Not near good enough. time to go jose. your time is up. team selection and tactics are unbelievable.
I hope someone at the club has a pair and tells him not good enough. Time to go.

5.) 29 Sep 2018 14:51:37
Yes leahy but unfortunately it's the players who have the balls and are telling him he's not good enough.

6.) 29 Sep 2018 15:02:28
Jose ought to be sacked but if it's at all possible he should be followed by a number of the clowns masquerading as footballers.

7.) 29 Sep 2018 14:57:04
We are laughing stock.
I just can’t figure it out how can we be this bad?

8.) 29 Sep 2018 15:14:10
For me, this all started with Woodward. He hired a man known for buying rather than building then when things weren't going well he refused to back the manager. But Jose and the team have a responsibility. They shouldn't take their problems onto the pitch. Very unprofessional and not United. Pogba, Jose and Woodward have to go and for a few seasons, silverware will have to be forgotten about. The rot really is that deep.

9.) 29 Sep 2018 15:38:54
I've no confidence in woody getting the next one right an we'll be here again in 2 years time.

10.) 29 Sep 2018 16:06:03
You can question the players, you can question Woodward, but we’re into Mourinho’s third season and still have no style of play that i can see and that’s some indictment of him .
Seems to me his way of doing things has had its day, deep down he knows it but he’s got nothing else . We can’t get rid of a whole squad of players so the manager needs to be the one to go.

11.) 29 Sep 2018 17:02:17
No ones saying Jose shouldn't be going but questions do have to ne asked of the players. Underperforming for one manager is bad enough but for 3 means questions have to be asked.



26 Sep 2018 16:39:21
How's Mou not backed?
How much money does he needs to make his team play a reasonable football for 4 matches in a row?

Mou has been here 3 years, how much he spent?
Which player he bought that has excelled at United so far? Is it Ed's fault?

Mourinho is ghost of himself. This job is too big for him, he's outdated. Always blaming the players in the press, the weather, the pitch, the money, the ref, the press, everyone is guilt but him.

We won the last EPL 5 season back and we are not even close to touch that trophy again never mind with Mourinho on the elm. Next season we'll be 6 years without the main trophy, and then the next year and the following year. How many excuses we'll come up with to always justify the mess we are in? Many will have to leave with the manager. We need let the deadwood go.

But stop with the bs about money. We spent money, it's was unwise but we spent.

I for one already lowered my expectations so I can be able to watch the games without sleeping.

This is how laughable we've become, successful outside of the pitch but mid table like team on the pitch.


1.) 26 Sep 2018 17:15:00
We’ve become a laughing stock. Hundreds of millions wasted. Players on astronomical wages. The club is rotten from top to bottom. We need new owners who have a vision for the future.

{Ed002's Note - What have the owners done wrong?}

2.) 26 Sep 2018 17:49:17
Agreed Ed002. As owners go, I think we have it pretty good. They are business people who are prepared to invest in the club and have done so with huge sums of money. I imagine their vision is to win everything they can. Why wouldn't they want to do that? They have made some errors of judgement with their appointment of the last three managers but at least they aren't slave masters or gangsters like owners of other Premier League Clubs.

What new owners do you envisage Blackpool Red? If the Glazers sell, who do you think can and will buy Man Utd?

3.) 26 Sep 2018 17:59:43
We needed a vast overhaul of players when Jose arrived, was going to take a number of Windows. We all as well as the club knew exactly what type of manager Jose was before hiring him, we all knew he spends money. Either accept that Jose knows what it takes to get to the top, and it does take spending power unfortunately, and back him at every turn or don’t but if you don’t then he should not be manager. Don’t get the shock that he’s spent money, yes he has and identified we needed 1/ 2 centre backs that we all agreed on so the club needs to say ok Jose. Obvs some signings have not fulfilled what we thought when bought like Bailly and Lindelof so obvs he needs to be allowed to correct that or the club needs to say no this is the direction we are now going in, new manager as Jose is and always has been a chequebook manager.

4.) 26 Sep 2018 19:37:01
The owners have employed the last thre mangers all of which have been failures.

{Ed002's Note - The owners don’t pick the nanagers.}

5.) 26 Sep 2018 20:15:56

These owners have not invested one brass bean in the club and they have not as you put it invested with huge sums of money. It was a leveraged buyout where the money comes from the club not them. Players are bought with money generated by the club, admittedly with their and Woodwards commercial acumen. You “imagine” their vision is to win everything they can, well it would be imaginary as they have never communicated. Take a look at their modus operandi at their US Football team and view their success under the owners model.

6.) 26 Sep 2018 21:29:44
Redman, it doesn't matter whether it's their personal money or not. It's fairly earned income and they have authorised its expenditure which they didn't have to do so fair play to them. It make commercial sense for Utd to win things so as business people it would be illogical for them not to want that. Redman, I know you would prefer a dictatorial slavemaster as our owner or perhaps a Russian gangster would suit you, just as long as they were putting in their 'own' dirty cash instead of spending the club's legitimately earned (and taxed) money eh? . Well, no thank you to that as far as I'm concerned.

WRD, since Jose started 3 years ago, inflation on player prices has gone through the roof. The market has changed so I don't blame the owners for waiting to see how it develops before agreeing to spend even greater and more serious sums on individual players. For all they know it's just a bubble. Plus as Ed002 alluded to, their might be the emergance of more player swaps on response to the crazy prices for players.

There are many problems at Man Utd but lack of cash for players is not one of them.



28 Aug 2018 10:36:36
Firtly, English is not my main language, so sorry for my english
The club went so far as to stop and rethink the club's strategy for the future.

Mourinho has no future and Manchester United also have no future with Mourinho.

Yesterday's game does not change anything, he's been at the club for two and a half years and those were the best 45 minutes of play we've had . and no goals. Do not tell me it gives good prospects, because it is not true.

I am not in favor of being fired, should continue until the end of the season and then rethinking a long-term project to revanp this great club.

Despite the Europa League, FA Cup, we are in decline, we support the defeats of our rivals to justify the status of our club, but past is past and we need to look forward, we were really a great team yes, but at the moment we are mediocre and that is what has to change.

We should be aiming for UCL ans PL, how long will take us to be a contenders again? Another top 4 fighting?
We spend 700M aprox in just 4-5 years and still not near close to City.

If Martial, Pogba, and others are to be released, so be it. Better bet on youth than watching these shows from players who do not seem to be interested in being here.
Regardless of how we played yesterday, it was a humiliation. A nightmare in the Theater of Dreams.
Glory, Glory Manchester United.

Why would DDG sign a new contract?
We don't know where we are going.

He will be a huge loss if he leaves. But the way things are, I don't see any top player staying if given a chance to leave!

Manchester United hired 3 wrong managers to make to transition. Mourinho maybe came in a very wrong time, but he hasn't done anything to help himself so far.

The question is why would you keep Mourinho? His CV or his form currently? His History proves, 3rd season is a disatriuos as it gets.
With him til May we will be in between 6th and 10th on the table, anywhere near top 4 will be a miracle.

It's really difficult to see and watch supporters get used to mediocrity. This is how we fall and be the new Arsenal or Liverpool because we justify everything by stating that the next year will be our year.
