Looks like we've been linked to Barkley again in some papers, please no, we've already got better players in that position and could spend money else where.

Smooth

{Ed004's Note - I don't see us signing Barkley this summer. Would prefer someone like Isco for his role anyways}


1.) 16 Apr 2017 14:34:16
Agreed Ed, Barkley has flattered to deceive seemed to have loads of potential but his progress, like many others, has stalled. Would have loved us to sign Isco a couple of seasons ago but again hasn't progressed as much as I expected.

{Ed004's Note - I think Isco is ready to take the final next step. He has all the attributes to be a world class player however, I reckon Mkhitarian will be playing as our number 10 next season anyways}


2.) 16 Apr 2017 18:51:01
Would be harsh to drop Miki, he's done well and Mata and Pereira as back up its not a position we need to strengthen, plenty of other positions do need strengthening. But, if there's a chance to sign a player of that quality can you afford to pass it up?

{Ed004's Note - I don't think you can say no. However, it's a squad game and they will get plenty of game time}


3.) 16 Apr 2017 18:27:07
I think, RM will definitely sell Rodriguez and maybe even another (Morata) and push Cristiano centrally, and maybe Isco gets his chance. Long shot though 😂.


4.) 16 Apr 2017 23:27:21
Barkley is decent but more of a 3 or 4 choice option for us, I would pick other players before him.

Is it just me or is anybody else sad to see miki going, would have loved to have seen the best of him in a utd shirt, on his day a quality player shame its not worked out for him, hope he doesn't come back to haunt us.

There’s 2 types of “on their day” type of player.

The first is a player who will consistently perform at a 7/ 10, then on occasion, or for spells, perform at 9-10/ 10. This is your Pogba, De Bruyne etc.

The second type is a player who will either perform sub-5/ 10 or 9-10/ 10. This is your Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

For a club at the level of Manchester United, player number 2 is just not enough.


2.) 15 Jan 2018 21:45:01
In a way yeh. I think he’s a very good player, playing for the wrong manager in the wrong system. I could see him doing well at Arsenal if he is involved in any potential Sanchez deal.


3.) 15 Jan 2018 21:56:57
I'm sorry, Smooth. I really thought he was going to be a gem of a player for us. Unfortunately he's only showed glimpses of what he's really capable of. I thought the same about Kagawa as well, tho, so shows how much I know.


4.) 15 Jan 2018 22:00:55
Eagles or turkeys, miki has turned into a bit of a turkey.


5.) 15 Jan 2018 22:18:48
agree smooth i thought he was going to be phenomenal for us. I feel even more sorry for him that he's joining the sinking ship in arsenal!

Hats off to Bristol, better side 😭.

Smooth

1.) 20 Dec 2017 22:12:19
Cant argue with that, even for a cup match where you can always get a shock result they just looked more composed.

We had enough ball and chances just didn't look like we were ever going to win.


2.) 20 Dec 2017 22:13:07
What can you say about that? Ibra looked like a non league player most of the game, Blind could get us a pack of fags from Barcelona for what he is worth. Darmian needs to get back to a lazy league, where he will get more time to try and defend. As for Pogba, stop trying to do it all, just the basics first.


3.) 20 Dec 2017 23:36:14
Maybe if he had some other playeres that could actually play football around him he wouldn’t feel like he has to do it all. How frustrating it must be to pass the ball to martial, rash or Ibra and know they will constantly lose it.


 

 

20 Dec 2017 15:48:58
Starting to get a real dislike of pep (maybe jealousy) at the way he's going over the top with celebrations, little digs ect, plus how much luck can one team have, every ricochet every second balls goes their way, can't go on, can it 😭.

Smooth

1.) 20 Dec 2017 17:04:16
If we played that kind of football we'll be celebrating like pep I hate saying it but they're outstanding and we are miles behind.


2.) 20 Dec 2017 19:51:55
they are outstanding were not far behind imo if you put Greizmann and Perisic or 2 players of equal elk I'm shore we would be in a 2 horse race Jose is good at building teams we a window coming up I think we will target a attacker.


3.) 20 Dec 2017 20:30:12
Agree they’re playing well but can’t see what all the fuss is about personally think we’ve seen better teams in the premiership, when they’ve won champs league andand prem a few times then they ca n gloat.


 

 

11 Dec 2017 21:18:37
Got to admit city were the better team but we could have got a result if we had taken our chances, regarding big rom I think he gets a rough deal, no service no chances no goals, let's hold off all the praise for city until they have actually won something apart from the premiership a few times before we hail them as the best prem team ever.

Smooth

1.) 11 Dec 2017 21:52:25
City have looked a class above all season to be fair, above everyone not just us. Aguero, Mendy and Stones missing, players like Bernardo Silva getting 2 minutes, he would be one of the first names on the team sheet for us! We need to change the type of players we are signing, the way we play and the mindset of the manager and players - everything seems to be too happy for just turning up, it isn't good enough.

We could have gotten a result of course, but I think Arsenal would be screaming the same last week, I think we used up all of our luck against them wouldn't you say?

In terms of Lukaku he is proving to be exactly as I thought and why I was so against signing him. Very hit and miss, also when he was getting goals he wasn't doing much else beside that (a bit like Zlatan last season) you need more from a central striker than just goals. So when he is missing easy chances it compounds the problems because he is unable to link properly handicapping our wide players and on the rare occasion a midfielder "dares" to risk a run forward, they are inevitable out of position when the ball is lost within 2 seconds. We also continue to hoof the ball far too much handing over possession against any half decent team.

You can win things like the CL relying on luck and the best team not always being at their best, but I'd rather go down trying to be better than them, not luckier. We were very very lucky during last seasons Europa League campaign beating teams that played much better than us on the day as well. We have been almost too lucky, which has masked a lot of frailties.


2.) 11 Dec 2017 22:18:23
Lukaku's linkup and holdup play against Arsenal was very good. He was involved in all 3 goals.

In the other big games, namely Chelsea, Liverpool and City he has been feeding off scraps and has had no service since we've lost the midfield battle. We need to fix our midfield to get the best oit of Lukaku.

I thought the team was a bit top heavy against City and we could have done without one of the front 4 and having a midfield 3 instead.


3.) 12 Dec 2017 01:59:56
Red faith his linkup play early on was good but what happened after the first 10-15 mins cannot be called as good holdup play, he was bullied in the air, his first touch could not have been worse. He is a bad signing especially for mourinho's football which requires strikers to be good at linking up play and holding the ball until support arrives.

Great game great result yesterday, DDG has truly turned into a world class keeper, linelof had a good game and looks to be turning into a good player, thought big rom had his best game for Utd without scoring, his hold up/ link up play was great, lingard was very good and is proving me wrong as i didn't think he was good enough, if we attack city i think we will get something, if we sit back we could getting hammered, good luck next week lads.

Smooth

1.) 03 Dec 2017 16:00:52
Smooth. We can't go full blast at City. I was wrong in thinking we could not beat arsenal. And our attacking on the break was sensational. However, if arsenal managed 14 shots on goal then I am scared to think how many chances city will create.
Great result.


2.) 03 Dec 2017 16:45:02
Agree we schmid. City are different gravy to arsenal.

But saying that city have been very lucky the last 3 games and teams have created chances.

If we can break and attack thebway we have the last few games and be ruthless we can cause them problems.


We can t be going into the game scared of what there attack can do ours is just as good.


3.) 03 Dec 2017 18:04:23
Fair point bolger.

I hope if we do sell ddg to Madrid then let's make em pay top dollar, they tried to shaft us over marata 80 mill yet reports suggest its only 62 mill to Milan, personally hope they tell em to swivel.

If we are serious about Hart or kasper then it looks like we're settling for mediocrity and fighting for 5/ 6 place.

What about jack butland, looks like he's going to be a class keeper, maybe a bit inexperienced but so was DDG whe he first came.

If we want a good old fashioned defender who just likes to defend and is good at it then my choice would be Lewis dunk from Brighton, could work well with bailly.

I think its very disrespectful of that Spanish geezer considering it’s Utd with the history and the trophies and city who have bought success recently ( (nothing against it, we’ve done it enough in past)

Been saying for a while he didn’t look happy, maybe he’s looking for an excuse to leave, not enough money spent always having a go at players and crowd publicly plus 18 month and his family still not moved up here yet, don’t look lik a long term project to me.

I've never Wanted jose sacked but did say he'd playing mostly dire football and if he wants PSG move he should go, don't want anyone at Utd whose doesn't want too be there no matter whose or how good they are, we've not seen the charismatic jose of old and stilli say he's a grumpy sod 😊.
