Will that be the end of the Bale rumours?


1.) 08 Aug 2017 22:31:19
Does that actually change anything if they only wanted to sell him if they get Mbappe?
Would he have been playing if Ronaldo was fit?

2.) 09 Aug 2017 05:55:54

3.) 09 Aug 2017 07:00:11
Would Isco not be available if Mbappe comes in AND Bale stays?

4.) 09 Aug 2017 07:25:48
Allen. Did u watch bale last night? You don't think he would be a big upgrade on anyone in our team then? He would be our best player and give us a whole new dimension.

5.) 09 Aug 2017 09:04:35
But if he doesn't want to come then its pointless chasing after him.

6.) 09 Aug 2017 10:07:53
Mort, exactly, hence the OP.

7.) 09 Aug 2017 10:30:01
dont clubs usually ask the agent if his player would be willing to join and I'd imagine if we got told he (bale) has no desire to join us then we just wouldn't pursue him so if we are interested like the eds have said we are then we must have been encouraged to carry on pursuing.

I've no idea if this makes any sense my heads a shed from just writing it 😀.

8.) 09 Aug 2017 11:03:37
I think i know what you mean dave :-)

9.) 09 Aug 2017 11:10:57
And bales agent has always said that his client is going nowhere. Wd bale improve our team. probably. but not at a cost of 90m.
Despite being 32 cr7 is valued 40m more than when we sold him in his prime. Bale despite being only 28 is valued the same as he was 4 years ago, this in an era when transfer fees are rocketing. Why has bales value not risen? 3 reasons imo. injury record, the loss of that extreme pace that made him so devastating previously and the fact that RM would happily cash in on him if he could be persuaded to leave so that they could buy mbappe.
Good player yes but not worth 90m or so with his injury record.
Would prefer isco all day long as I suspect RM will when la liga kicks off.

10.) 09 Aug 2017 11:56:55
I watched the game and he did very little can see why he might be available. He is no where as influential in that Madrid team as the other guys (modric, isco, kroos, Ronaldo, benzema) and for me influences the game very little. For 90 million I would rather spend it on 2 other players.

He does no defending and good in a counter attack sense where he has a lot of room to run into. Put Martial or Rashford into that real team and they would thrive as well if given the chance to run one on one at defenders.

I would not be surprised if Real come calling in a year or two for our guys.

11.) 09 Aug 2017 13:29:17
Watching us last night I wish we had signed Bernardo silva He can keep the ball, we are miles away, Lukaku did nothing to impress me or change my mind about him, didn't look mobile, or have a great touch.

12.) 09 Aug 2017 15:46:53
Still think we need a CM who can control the game Herrera for me isn't good enough he's a jack of all trades master of none. With matic at DM I would prefer a more technical player than Herrera I like him but to get to the next level we need a modric or silva type player who can unlock deep defences and keep Possesion in tight areas.

13.) 10 Aug 2017 09:26:00
Lukaku is all brain, he's reading of the game is just on another level :D.



14 Jul 2017 17:55:44
Matic missing Chelsea tour. Think it's imminent then.


1.) 14 Jul 2017 20:22:26
Juventus are supposedly interested too.



09 Jul 2017 13:52:20
All the best Wayne Rooney. We had 8-9 really good years from him. Hope he is successful back at Everton.


1.) 09 Jul 2017 13:58:13
well said stand-United.

2.) 09 Jul 2017 18:24:23
After Ronaldo left he practically carried us.

3.) 09 Jul 2017 19:42:06
lets just take a moment to remember that overhead kick against City.

4.) 09 Jul 2017 20:28:36
and the newcastle volley.



01 Jul 2017 10:30:18
I think we'll see a few signings in the coming week. We leave for pre season tour in roughly a week, id imagine Jose will want a few new faces involved.


1.) 01 Jul 2017 11:28:21
Think Matic could be agreed early next week when Chelsea sign Bakayoko, Hopefully Morata too.



27 Jun 2017 17:25:30
I think Pogba will be like a new signing this season. Last season he got a lot of unfair criticism from a lot on here. His first season in the premier league, time to adapt etc, all in all I think he did fairly well apart from the odd game. With a bit more quality and luck with his finishing he could have scored 20 last season. And with better finishing from the strikers he would have had tonnes of assists too. I think we have potentially one of if not the best midfielders in the world. He has everything to his game. If he improves and gains more consistency he will be huge for us.


1.) 27 Jun 2017 17:50:59
Stand - let's be honest, a lot of the criticism was very fair. Up until his brief spell out with an injury he was very poor for the most part, he had two or three good games but 95% of the time he was very poor. He came good towards the end of the season when he kept things simple, which is a promising sign.

2.) 27 Jun 2017 17:54:26
I agree stand. I think he did well enough last season. Bit of a difference too playing with pirlo etc compared to fellaini. once we get a bit more quality around him he will thrive.

3.) 27 Jun 2017 18:10:38
There's a youtube video of just Pogba hitting the post and crossbar last season. It's not a short video.

4.) 27 Jun 2017 18:51:14
He did pretty well last season. His stats were good and with a bit more luck from range he'd have scored more too and not hit the woodwork so much. There is plenty of room to improve as he is quality, but I disagree with anyone who said his season was poor overall.

5.) 27 Jun 2017 19:06:27
Sorry Wazza. He was far from very poor. Wow, sometimes I can't stand fellow United supporters even more than opposition fans. But you can definitely find work as a british tabloid "journalist" i'm sure.

6.) 27 Jun 2017 19:31:01
KG, no need to apologise for having an opinion. At one stage pretty much everyone on here was saying the only reason Pogba's not been dropped is because of his name. His injury came at a very convenient time when he should have been dropped, and a good end to the season has helped gloss over what otherwise was largely forgettable. He was underwhelming in at least 7 games out of 10. I'm sure next season will get better.

Ken that reasoning is a cop out. I'm sure I would also play better next to Pirlo than Fellaini. He's been brought in as the person to improve those around him. We best stick a world class player in every position if we want Pogba to play well 😴.

7.) 27 Jun 2017 19:48:52
Wazza its not a cop out at all. He was playing in a relatively slow tempo league with players that dominated possession and could keep the ball. He came from that scenario to a team that was under a new coach and to be frank a bit all over the place. He took time to adjust and imo did well and improved as the season went on. He was playing with a better class of player at juve and they made him look great at times and he made them look great at times also.
I think herrera benefited greatly by introducing a player of pogbas class having his best season alongside pogba and i think pogba benefited from herrera too. The season before herrera had to try and play with rooney or fellaini in midfield.

8.) 27 Jun 2017 20:00:53
Also wazza its not about signing world class players in every position. Most of the top teams have 4 or 5 world class players in their group arguably.
Bailly would not be described as world class but imo has the potential same with lindelof or morata.
We have 1 in ddg pogba is close to that bracket.
Fabhini could be the best rb in football i believe and is a very good midfielder.
Top class players and pros like herrera miki valencia are just as important
Remember we lost the brilliance of rooney rvp keane scholes giggs ronaldo over last 10 years and we replaced that quality with players that are not as good or bought players that just have not worked out for whatever reason.
Not everybody we buy has to be world cla but the must be i'd the required high standard. We have enough young olayers we need a few proven winners and players with know how and a big club mentality.

9.) 27 Jun 2017 20:01:54
I defended him all season I think you'll find. A bit like I did on here with DeGea when the world was attacking him after he joined and had a nervous start. Get behind the lad, we have a player who truly has the potential to reach the top, and all he gets is sh*t off our own fans.

10.) 27 Jun 2017 21:01:18
Ken my world class comment was very much sarcastic.

11.) 27 Jun 2017 21:27:26
"He did pretty well last season". For a world record fee I expect more than pretty well an pretty well is pushing it. He was at best, average.

12.) 27 Jun 2017 21:45:57
Was that his fault AJH? Did he set the price or pay it. Also who would live up to such a ridiculous price tag? Other than the 2 players we can all name.

Average my arse. Give it a rest. A young guy in his first PL season, he did fine and will only get better. Support the boy.

13.) 27 Jun 2017 21:30:18
Wazza, he's still a kid, playing in a new league, why were you expecting him to be top class every game? Price tag? He needs time to settle like everyone else. I thought he was very good in a lot of games, average in others. There's no doubt he has a higher ceiling than anyone else in our squad.

14.) 27 Jun 2017 21:33:35
Brendan, couldn't agree more. I was one that also backed de gea.

15.) 27 Jun 2017 21:57:44
I sit judge a player I on what they cost AJH. I judge them on what they win and how the work as part of a team. So imo i think he did pretty well we won the 2nd and 4th target comps. He will improve and so will the team when we add 4 or 5 players with more quality than the ones who have brought us to 5th 4th 5th and 6th for last few seasons. too mu h mediocrity surround the few higher class players we have have.

16.) 27 Jun 2017 23:25:45
AJH, he didn't set the figure. If we decided to pay £90m for ANY player right now does that mean he has to play to a world class level immediately? We've invested in Pogba. Commercially he will make us a fortune, and we should get 6-10 years of a truly world class player. That's how good I believe he will be. Give the lad a chance.

17.) 28 Jun 2017 00:12:54
For me if you pay top dollar for a player a midfielder then he needs to boss games control them, For that kind of money I would be expecting a scholes, lampard type player. he did ok average at best not good enough for me, the best I seen him play was a few weeks ago for France against England.
Now having said all that I will back him and say we should get a good season out of him this year.

18.) 28 Jun 2017 01:31:03
Pogba signed for Utd the second week of August at the end of which the PL season started . He played in the Euros final on the 10th of July . He had no pre-season done with the team .
Given he had no time pre-season he did ok . This season with the rest he's gotten there will be a an improvement and with that more consistency . So when judging a player all factors need to considered not just the price tag.

19.) 28 Jun 2017 03:42:53
Are you serious, pre season.
He is a professional footballer an athlete.

20.) 28 Jun 2017 06:50:52
we need to stop saying he was unlucky because he hit the post X amount of times if the ball goes 6 inchs one way and goes wide is he still unlucky? also if the ball goes 6inchs the other way and he scores would we be calling him lucky? . i'm a big pogba fan btw and the stick he gets is unfair i honestly think he's one of the best . i think he'd feel embarrashed people are making excuses about being unlucky for him.

21.) 28 Jun 2017 07:14:41
Let's put the fee aside then. He rarely dominated games and when we needed someone to take a game by the scruff of the neck he was found wanting. He has admitted himself he found his first season difficult

I like hm, I think he will come good and go on to be a really good, hopefully great player for us. I just think people see what they want to see, just because I think he was average last year doesn't mean I don't want him to do well, I'm just calling it as I saw it.

22.) 28 Jun 2017 07:59:15
Even if he was just average - I think he was better than that - and was only playing to 60% of his potential, think about what he might do this season now he's settled in (and will have Matic allowing him to get more forward)

23.) 28 Jun 2017 09:18:06
Spot on wallace.
Of course your calling it as you see it AJH. Do you think any united player had a good season last season? Who was above average?

24.) 28 Jun 2017 09:37:57
Ken, I think a lot of players had good spells. Stand out player was probably Herrera and obviously Ibra with his goals. Rashford showed promise but needs to continue to progress, Bailly looks a great signing, Miki had some good spells and will hopefully push on this coming season.

I like Darmian, he gets stick but he knows how to defend. Jones played well when fit, others like Fellaini, Lingard, Blind all had their moments (as did PP) . The biggest disappointment last year was Martial after his stunning first year. It seems to be a mental issue for him.

I'm generally optimistic but sometimes people see different things and stick to their view rigidly.

Wallace, I don't disagree, I think he will step up this year after settling in and hopefully having more quality around him.

25.) 28 Jun 2017 10:46:18
For some some players can do no wrong some can do no right .
On the money there ajh imo.

26.) 28 Jun 2017 11:20:50
There is definitely more to come from Pogba, and if I'm honest I was hoping he would perform better than he did.

But personally I think he was better than average, statistically he was one of the best performing midfielders in the league in many areas.

He in no way lived up to his transfer fee, but to expect him to is unfair imo. He didn't set it the club did.

I'd rate his season as a 7 out of 10, with the occasional 8 performance. Next year he should be a solid 8/ 10 every week with 9's and occasional 10 performances.

27.) 28 Jun 2017 13:15:53
As you know only too well jred everybody has their favoirites.

28.) 28 Jun 2017 13:16:28
How many 23 year olds boss games in there first season at a club and in the PL? Very very few. So if we take the fee out, his season was fine. I do expect more over the next season or two though. If this was the end of next season or the one after then I'd agree he hadn't done enough. After one season let's just give him a bit of time.

29.) 28 Jun 2017 13:24:08
good post shappy. Last year's league campaign was nothing short of dreadful i expect better this year if we can bring in some better players to compliment the best players we have.

30.) 28 Jun 2017 13:55:16
Pretty accurate there Shaps, I think 7/ 10 is pretty average but he did have his moments. I think we are all saying pretty much the same but from different angles. We expect more, and think we will get more.

31.) 28 Jun 2017 18:18:34
to be fair to pogba, having to deal with his father dying too must have weighed down on him too. footballers aren't immune to have to deal with real life issues. the last ewo games of the season he looked as if a great weight had been lifted off him. he will show all the doubters next season his class.

Gutted to hear about Pogba, although I feared it with how quiet it's been. Massive loss. Has started the season brilliantly. We're not the same team without him and he will be a huge loss this season.


1.) 29 Sep 2017 15:44:51
Yeah that’s a massively blow, talking about in the same category as Rojo and Ibra take that as December ish return? Herrera never let us down last season so his chance to shine again.

2.) 29 Sep 2017 15:44:52
Looks like he is out until mid November.

3.) 29 Sep 2017 15:52:21
Agree stand his quality against the big teams will be missed.

4.) 29 Sep 2017 16:10:24
Beat you by 1 second jred 😂.

5.) 29 Sep 2017 20:33:40
I think Herrera, Fellaini and Carrick are not bad options to have. They all always give 100%. Mctominay will also get a few more games till November. It's good for the lad. This is cliche and all but when Pogba, Ibra and Rojo return they will be like new signings.

6.) 30 Sep 2017 05:23:15
Quite angry with how Pereira decided to jump clubs.
He would have gotten a good amount of game until Pogba returned.

7.) 30 Sep 2017 10:15:19
Angry with Pereira? Bit odd. There were no guarantees that he would get the sufficient game time for us this season. Where as he will feature heavily for Valencia and gain much needed experience. Come back to us a much more seasoned pro IMO. The right move.

8.) 30 Sep 2017 18:51:10
Pereira made a great choice going to valencia. He will get a load of game time. Probs had more minutes for them now then he would have in the whole season for us. I genuinely believe he will have more chance to be a starter for us next season by going and playing a decent amount of seniorfootball at a decent side.



28 Sep 2017 14:15:14
3 goals and 3 assist in his last 3 games for Anthony Martial. Playing like he was in his first season again and long may it continue. This lad has all the potential to be world class in the future.


1.) 28 Sep 2017 14:46:51
He's not the most demonstorative but it looks to me like he's enjoying himself more.

I look forward to seeing him and Rashford play together with Lukaku. That's a seriously pacey front line.

2.) 28 Sep 2017 14:46:58
Any news on his injury or how long he will be out for.

3.) 28 Sep 2017 17:18:43
According to physio room it's a "knock", slight doubt for saturday. Still no news at all on Pogba which I find strange.

4.) 28 Sep 2017 17:28:08
Mou is doing great with both rash and martial. And they are doing great for him. His attitude has changed this year according to jose. He is keeping both fresh and they are both developing. Neither has shown any complacency and are both being kept hungry and eager to ptive themselves everyday. that's what you get when you have 2 top class players fighting for their plave in the team.
Jones is another case in point. So eager to prove himself as he wants to keep his place ahead of lindelof.
We are still short in a couple of positions in terms of high class cover for the main starter but getting there.

5.) 29 Sep 2017 00:25:21
I think we probably have one of the better second teams in Europe.



18 Sep 2017 01:21:07
A lot had been said about Matic and what a difference he has made this season, and I fully agree. I think as good a player as he is and fits perfectly into our side, it's actually the effect on the likes of Pogba that's most impressive. Pogba has been superb this season. Matic has allowed him the freedom to play higher up the pitch and effect the game more. So far we've seen a few goals and assists, and he's bossed the games. I think he'll be a big loss while out and I hope it's not a long term thing. As well as Fellaini has performed this season, him Matic aren't mobile enough against the better sides imo. Sooner the Pog is back the better.

As for the few posters trashing Rashford, give your head a wobble. The lads been quality this season. He's still a kid and getting better all the time.

Kudos to Lukaku, goal machine. I think he fits out style perfectly. If he doesn't get 30 goals this season I'll eat my budgie smugglers.


1.) 18 Sep 2017 10:03:09
I don't get the dislike of rashford he had a poor game for once but him and martial between them have been on the whole really good so far with one on the other scoring nearly every game. I was very impressed with lukakus set up for Miki and our attackers have been pretty potent so far.
I think we did miss pogba and four nil was very flattering to how the game actually went . But it's a good sign not playing anywhere near our best and scoring 4 hitting the post and missing chances to .

2.) 19 Sep 2017 06:04:12
Beast you sound like a broken record 'warning everyone not to get carried away' (to hammer home a negative point of view i'd imagine) but what exactly is the harm in a bunch of fans getting excited with their team winning. last time i checked, this was football.

Yet, ironically, you also opine a few posts ago that you are entitles to harsh criticism of our players and that criticism has no bearing on the players as its just a bunch of fans expressing themselves.



17 Sep 2017 09:59:55
I'll be missing the match today as I'm flying at 4pm. Bad timing. Hope we really take it to them. As shappy said yesterday it's a good time to be playing them, they're wobbling a bit at the moment. Still I expect s tough game, they usually always are. Big game without Pogba who has been top class so far. Come on the reds.


1.) 17 Sep 2017 10:29:13
I have us winning 3-1.



14 Sep 2017 16:22:41
Tough game on Sunday I feel. They usually up their game against us. Rooney will be desperate to score. Pogba will be a big miss. He's been one of the best players in the league so far, certainly one of our most influential. Hopefully either Hererra or Fellaini step up. Would like to see Martial and Rashford start together. Having said that mata has been his consistent self so doesn't warrant dropping.


1.) 14 Sep 2017 17:04:49
They play tonight, that always seems to make a difference.

2.) 14 Sep 2017 17:38:25
Hopefully Jred. Fresh Tony v and Hererra too, plus Bailly and jones have had the week.

3.) 14 Sep 2017 19:09:53
Everton are getting battered 3 nil at half time. Strong everton team out too. They have not gelled yet for koeman its usually a tricky fixture for us but they are poor at the moment. No real striker in their team but they will be a wounded animal on sunday after some really poor results so we will have to be at our best to win.

4.) 14 Sep 2017 19:10:10
Everton are in a bad way atm, struggling to gel and a great time to play them I think. At Old Trafford too, I'd expect a win, but football is a funny old game.

In regards to Özil, if he is free next summer, then he would be a decent addition to the squad. Is he out of contract next summer?

5.) 14 Sep 2017 19:39:29
Everton look poor tonight. You just know they'll turn up and play like real Madrid on Sunday.

6.) 14 Sep 2017 20:17:47
He is syd can negotiate a deal with European clubs from jan not with epl teams till the season ends.

7.) 14 Sep 2017 21:18:23
Tough game? They're dreadful right now and we are at home, we need to go for the jugular, there is no reason why we shouldn't steamroller them. We've had more rest, are on a roll and have fresh players to bring in. Let's do them.

8.) 14 Sep 2017 21:21:25
Everton is never an easy game, they normally raise their game against us. But I don't believe there could be a better time to play them than now. They haven't found their rhythm yet this season and have already had to play some tough fixtures that haven't gone their way. Then they get battered in Italy tonight and have a four hour flight home to dwell on it. They will need a day off tomorrow, a day to train on Saturday, but not at full intensity as they have to play on Sunday. Not much time to get tonight's beating out of their heads. Score early on Sunday and we could see them crack, the longer the game stays 0-0 the more confident they will become. We need to hit them hard and early.

9.) 14 Sep 2017 21:59:44
Kill, kill, killl, kill.

10.) 15 Sep 2017 01:17:18
They'll only play like Real Madrid, if we let them! I've even brought in young Rashford to my dream team to back up Lukaku, in the expectation that we're going to rip them a new one :)

11.) 15 Sep 2017 08:32:24
We need to make sure we have a go at them. They'll only play like RM if we let them. Easy 3 points for us if manager puts right team out and the players are allowed to attack them.

I think he looks our most dangerous player to be honest, very quick and direct. He should get plenty of game time. I'll be very dissapointed if he's phased out.

Gds I promise had we drew our first two games I would feel the same. I like Zlatan, I'll support him and sing his song, I just feel he is detrimental to the way we attack and would rather see Rashford or Martial down the middle when Lukaku isn't playing.

Plus it’s not the players fault that was his price. Times change. Like buying a house 20 Year’s ago for £30k, that same house is worth £300k now. It’s just what it is. Pogba already looks a steal at £89m.

GDS and Shaps, agree completely.

I can’t believe the stick Pogba gets. Even in the ground i hear people moaning about him. He gives the ball away trying things other won’t dare try. I want that kind of player in our side. When it comes off it’s top class. The pass for Roms goal was top class. I think he’s already one of the best in his position in the world and will only improve. One thing is for certain he’s out best player, and we’ll miss him massively on the weekend. Those that doubt his influence take a look at our results without him this season.

04 Dec 2017 23:33:44
He has more ability than Viera, no doubt about it imo. I genuinly think he can be the best in the world, he just needs more consistency, although he is influencing more games this season than last already. Our best outfield player comfortably.

DDG is incredible, I've been saying it for ages he's the worlds best, comfortably for me. I wouldn't swap him for anyone. Pogba is a HUGE miss now. It really was a great result for us but that has taken the gloss off. We're a much poorer side without Pogba, our best outfield player. Young good again.


{Ed0333's Note - back to the bus parking against the blue half of Manchester me thinks.

Ozick is a very, very good player. Imo he get a lot of unfair criticism. In the right set up he is genuine world class. On a free transfer I'd definatly take him. He is better than all our number 10's, comfortably.
