Ryan Sessegnon seems to get better and better. Massive talent at his age. With us badly needing a decent LB, just wondered ED002 If United are keeping tabs on him? Have we any interest at all? Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 21 Jan 2018 00:53:06
Shame. Think he’ll go right to the top of the game.

{Ed007's Note - And wishing he was Kieran Tierney....

2.) 21 Jan 2018 07:18:06
We have a decent left back, his name is Luke Shaw.

3.) 21 Jan 2018 08:45:12
And oh how reliable he’s proven to be over the last 3/ 4 years. He needs proper competition, it’s a weak area in our side.

4.) 21 Jan 2018 10:24:37
If We keep the Shaw we have seen the way 4/ 5 matches we have a player on our hands. Remains to be seen. Don’t see what’s wrong with keeping Darmian to fill in on both sides as and when (unless he wants to leave to play regular football) . Don’t forget Young has been excellent too this season. If TFM comes back next season he can provide good cover at right back.

Midfield is where we need some serious re-inforcements now we have Sanchez coming.

5.) 21 Jan 2018 11:43:27

Because it’s all about shiny new signings mate, forget the dead wood we already have, they are all useless.

6.) 21 Jan 2018 13:09:04
Keeping Darmian means blocking the chance of any comptetent right sided full back. That is to say stopping us getting a full back that can defend, attack at pace, can put in a good cross and who might chip in with the odd goal.

7.) 21 Jan 2018 13:05:13
I haven't seen enough of Ryan, but from what I've heard he will soon be at a top club in the PL. On the other hand I've watched Tierney on a couple of occasions and I think we should go for him. Young could be cover for Valencia and Shaw and Tierney can battle for the LB.

8.) 21 Jan 2018 13:22:40
Ryan looks a very good player could and might play a bit further forward in the future.

9.) 21 Jan 2018 14:01:53
Let's remember also that if rojo is good enough to play left back for Argentina in a world cup final then he ie certainly good enough to play left back for us.

10.) 21 Jan 2018 14:41:59
No he'S not.

11.) 21 Jan 2018 14:43:37
Argentina’s left options must be dire then because Rojo is shocking at left back not having a dig at him because I think he’s a very good centre back but left he is terrible.

12.) 21 Jan 2018 15:42:26
I dnt think he'll be a left back for much longer in his career! He's basically a LWB right now at Fulham. Wouldn't surprise me if he ends being a LW in his prime years!

13.) 21 Jan 2018 16:11:43
I agree, may move forward like bale did.

14.) 21 Jan 2018 22:43:12
Competent right beck BFB? Darmian plays for Italy. The mastersof defending.

15.) 24 Jan 2018 17:35:08
Worst italy team for 80 years.



15 Jan 2018 16:00:57
Ed002, sorry to bother, just wondered if there was any update with regards to Sanchez. With Wengers saying it could be done in 24/ 48 hours is there any progress ether way? Where do you see his most likely destination? Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer "most likely" questions sensibly. Wenger ill likely be right that it will be completed soon - perhaps in the next couple of days but there is no agreement just yet.}

1.) 15 Jan 2018 16:05:19
Twitchy bum time, we'll just have to wait and see.

2.) 15 Jan 2018 16:09:48
No probs ed, cheers.

3.) 15 Jan 2018 16:15:06
Notice that it says will be completed but not where he will complete to. I still struggle to believe he will be a Utd player with it seeming so nailed on for city for so long.



08 Aug 2017 20:46:54
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

You can't win the CL with a back 4 of Valencia (winger) , Young (winger) , Smalling (dross) and Lindelof (woeful start to his United career, looks like a championship player) .

On top of that leave you best player on the bench. What the hell is going on.


1.) 21 Feb 2018 19:07:31
Since how many years we are feeling of wrong players in wrong positions. getting priority. it's always frustrating to see line up now andays.

2.) 21 Feb 2018 19:07:55
Couldn't agree more.

3.) 21 Feb 2018 19:09:32
I don't know, very strange, Jose said pogba not tactical not illness but what is it then. Must be a rift between them.

4.) 21 Feb 2018 19:30:02
I might wait till after the game to criticise. Radical approach I know. :)

5.) 21 Feb 2018 19:49:53

We’ve already lost mate, Jose doesn’t have a clue in Europe.

6.) 21 Feb 2018 19:51:01
Also, how many years does Valencia need to play at RB before he’s a right back. I’d argue he’s one of the best in Europe. Young is a winger, no argument.

7.) 21 Feb 2018 19:56:32
With this lineup it’s obvious the priority is not to lose.

8.) 21 Feb 2018 20:28:25
What’s wrong with that away from home in the champ league? Fergie did it often.

9.) 21 Feb 2018 20:33:34
Somebody wake me up when it’s over.

10.) 21 Feb 2018 21:01:02
Name of your sex tape?

11.) 21 Feb 2018 21:15:55

12.) 21 Feb 2018 22:20:10
Rwwd i'm just curious as to how you can argue that valencia is one of the best right backs in europe?
Give it a shot, convince me.
Imo he is a solid enough defender and very fit and very good at retaining possesion. However his crossing is awful je rarely gets to the by line he has no left foot at all. He gets beaten one on one too easily.
6.5 out of ten every week with the occasional 8 imo. Just like lots of his colleagues.
He rarely let's you down but neither does a ford escort.

13.) 21 Feb 2018 23:05:59
Fair play Ken. My argument is basically that if you can name ten better he’s amongst the best in Europe. I may be wrong but he is certainly a RB at this point.

14.) 21 Feb 2018 23:06:44
Also Ken, I think the standard atm is so low he qualifies as one of the best.

15.) 22 Feb 2018 17:29:26
There are 10 Better in the championship😗😗.



02 Feb 2018 13:42:41
Pogba gets a lot of stick when we have a bad result. Don't get me wrong, he like all players has his off days. And is still a bit inconsistent. However, he is still our best player, make no mistake (less maybe Sanchez actually) . But our team without Pogba is toothless. When he's missing we very rarely perform well. He needs to play in a midfield 3 like he did at Juve to get the best out of him. That's not to say he can't play in a two, but he's much better in a 3.

I thibk Lukaku has been the seasons big disappointment so far. Very average and half assed for a long time now. A big waste of £75m, is of taken a chance on Aubameyang any day of the week.

I'd personally like to see a front 3 of Sanchez down the middle, with Martial and Lingard either side of him. What's clear is we need a top CM to play with Matic and Pog. Herrera does a job but won't take us to the next level.

It's a shame Jones has frequent wobbles, on the whole I think he's decent, why would you clear that cross with your wrong foot? It's school boy stuff. Smalling on the other hand is just poor. He's so bad on the ball, as soon as he's pressed at all he panics. He needs selling and replacing. Bailly, Jones, Rojo, Tuanzebe ( who I actually rate a lot ) and a new CB. Full back we are weak on both sides. If we address these issues in the summer we should be able to rival Cutt next year. If not it will be a fight for 4th again.


1.) 02 Feb 2018 14:15:24
Maybe he needs to play in the Italian league to get the best out of him?
Why can't he play in a 2, what is it about his game that means he has to play on the left of a 3 man midfield to play well.

Looks like that attacking area on the left and drifting in to support the striker ( like he did for juve ) is going to be taken up by Sanchez.

2.) 02 Feb 2018 14:27:58
I'm happy with his performances in the smaller games but in the big games he needs to step it up! Arguably though he gets more isolated in the big games!

3.) 02 Feb 2018 14:36:46
A player like Julian Weigl or Arturo vidal will be perfect.

I think we should go all out for Vidal and let Pogba do his thing.

4.) 02 Feb 2018 14:40:26

What's your opinion mate?

Do you think he's good enough to play in a midfield two or do you think he's a bit overrated, inconsistent and not as good as some people like myself think he is?

5.) 02 Feb 2018 14:48:35
As I have said below he is easily good enough to play in a midfield 2 .
Has all the talent and attributes to play there .
Could be an amazing cm .
Why does he have to play on the left of a midfield 3 to play well?
Lot of hype around him tho .

6.) 02 Feb 2018 14:51:01
Ps - I agree with most of that Stand!

Maybe a bit harsh on Lukaku but I'd also like to see Martial given a consistent run of games up top and see what he can do especially now we have Sanchez! He might not score as many as Lukaku but he might improve the dynamic of the team.

I like Jones but he's injury prone and still has the odd mistake in him. I'd love to see him get a full injury free season behind him next to a regular partner. He's still relatively young and I wouldn't give up on him just yet! I actually think Smalling is ok as a squad player which he predominant is. He wouldn't be playing if Bailly was fit but I take your point.

I actually think we've now got a very good squad. Yes the Spurs game was very disappointing but the whole team had an off night. I think with a few tactical tweaks and if we can find a system that can get the best out of Pogba and Sanchez then we should be a force!

7.) 02 Feb 2018 15:23:48
Jred, did you see Jose having a go at pogba the other night cause he wasn't doing what he was supposed to be doing, now another midfielder in there with him helps him and the team. let's him get forward more.

8.) 02 Feb 2018 15:27:54
I saw pogba getting both barrels of Jose for not doing what he should .
And then him quite rightly getting dragged off .
Jose laying the law down no silly excuses.

9.) 02 Feb 2018 19:31:35
I also worry about Lukaku but he hasn’t really had a lot of chances, the way we play suggest he was not the right type of CF we could have bought.

I’m not saying Pogba is a bad player, I’m saying I expected more than we have seen. He needs to get a grip and dedicate himself to making the most of his undoubted talents. Right now, it seems he is not fulfilling his potential. United players say Ronaldo was the most dedicated player they have ever seen. Yes he has talent but he practiced for hours and made the absolute best of what he had. I just don’t see Pogba has done that yet and I’d like him to get his finger out and step up to the level we need, and do it consistently.

Sorry to bang on but when has he ever got a grip of a game and dragged us through? He’s incredibly talented, he has all the attributes, he just needs fo deliver.

10.) 02 Feb 2018 21:14:38
Football is never a one man show. But playing to the 25 man squad.

I do agree on Pogba being our best player. I do agree on us playing someone with Matic and shifting Pogba little up. I think in our current squad it is Herrera. And of José wants to he could play Timothy fosu-mensah there with Matic. Guy is beast in one of one and tackles. That would mean sacrifice one person from up top. And I don't think that is too much of problem. Since we just added Sanchez in our attacking threat.

Playing 2 men midfield with Pogba is never going to get best of Pogba infact it is doing the worst possible thing. It's like asking Pogba to play out of position. He is good but other teams are packing midfield. Against Tottenham Dembele, Ericson and Alle was running riot.
It would help if we have defender who presses and are good with ball. Smalling clearly isn't. Maybe Bailey and Jones playing together will help.
But Jose can't see that. And I have feeling that will be our undoing if we r ever hoping any trophies. 2 in midfield with Pogba on one.

11.) 02 Feb 2018 21:47:23
Pogba can play in a 2 man midfield but why not play him as a 10 and bring another cm to release him more forward where he is far more effective? By playing him in a 2 man midfield mourinho is ironically playing a more attacking formation as he can bring on an extra attacking player rather than a midfielder and hopeing that pogba can do both jobs. He was unreal at juve because he sort of had that free role in a midfield 3, that's his best position where he doesn't need to concentrate as much on his defensive duties. I would like to see lukaku up top with martial and Sanchez either side with pogba just in behind, that leaves mata, rashford and lingers as options off the bench. It will be interesting to see lukakus strike rate compared to Kane, morata and aguero as someone pointed out, his chances have really dried up recently. I also read a rumour that matic has been carrying an injury for the past 6 weeks, not sure how true it is.

12.) 03 Feb 2018 03:35:37
Pogba has a bad game so what we all **** up where’s the talk about Bernardo Silva and how crap he’s been no mention about the most overrated transfer this summer hopefully all this bad press is used as ammunition for mourinho.



16 Jan 2018 13:17:59
Player swaps are very rare in football these days, who's to say Miki has any interest at all in Arsenal, a side struggling and who won't make CL football, who probs won't pay the silly wages we do and a managerial change fairly imminent imo.

I see I very unlikely he will want to go and can see the whole deal collapsing tbh. I'd love to be proven wrong but the longer it goes on the less likely it comes off I think.


1.) 16 Jan 2018 13:25:39
I agree stand the longer it goes on the less optimistic I am about this deal. Very frustrating but you cannot force miki to move somewhere he does not want to go. I hope it can be resolved as losing Sanchez to one of our rivals will have huge repercussions I feel. If he didn’t want to join he would have said no so I do believe he wants to play for us. We just need to get this tied up and come to some arrangement which benefits all parties.

2.) 16 Jan 2018 14:03:45
If he doesn't move then we will offload him elsewhere, he now knows the club don't want him and then we will up the offer to Arsenal who need to sell and will therefore accept. Only us and City interested, City have pulled out, let's not worry just yet.



15 Jan 2018 22:11:31
Chelsea in for Alexis now. Would be less upheaval I guess moving etc? I really hope we can get this over the line. It's only been a few days but I'm already bored of it all! Just pick one quickly Alexis and make sure it's us!




13 Jan 2018 03:08:30
Ed002 has posted a response on the Arsenal site, where he states he believes Sanchez is only interested in joining city, with them being able to challenge for league and CL honours in the next 3/ 4 years. As Ed002 is 99.9% of the time bang on I think we can dismiss this one unfortunately.

Oh he also mentions the ludicrous salary Zlatan is on is a slight hinderence. Why the hell was he given another contract. He's utterly useless.


1.) 13 Jan 2018 08:00:21
“He’s utterly useless” were you saying this last season when he was the only one banging in goals?

For the record Maze did not want ZI to sign a new deal due to the fact he could be stagnating the development of MR and AM but to label him as “useless” is nonsensical and stupid. Twaddle.

2.) 13 Jan 2018 09:34:35
I would say he was poor last season, should have had double the goals he scored. He missed some sitters.

3.) 13 Jan 2018 10:13:17
He wasn't poor though. Revisionism at it's best.

4.) 13 Jan 2018 10:42:48
I don't really get this whole he more chance of winning stuff with city thing as far as I can see we've won more than city in recent seasons also yes city look very good this season but I don't really get how that translates as dominance in the near future .

Still they have won nothing yet.

5.) 13 Jan 2018 10:45:19
regardless of how he was last year, United were foolish to offer him a contract so early this season. he's fooled them to believe his powers of recovery he looked no where near fit. yet marcos rojo got no headlines from recovering from the same injury.

6.) 13 Jan 2018 11:14:48
To give a 36 year old with a torn acl the contract we give ibra seems a strange decision .
Mind you signing him in the first place was a short sighted.

7.) 13 Jan 2018 12:10:32
Maze if you weren’t hiding under your rock most of last year you would have seen I said all last season he was a burden on the team. He may of scored a few goals, but he was detrimental the the way we played and we were better when he wasn’t playing. To then give him another 300k a week contract after an acl at the age of 36 is laughable.

8.) 13 Jan 2018 12:12:41
Dean, but they have. They’ve won the League twice, an FA Cup and a League Cup, maybe not under Pep but they are competing and winning things.

9.) 13 Jan 2018 12:29:14
I was talking about this season Tony I'm pretty fed up with all the talk of fabulous man city.

It's like overnight we've become some piddly little club that can't attract the players we want because it's such an awful proposition to play for united.

I will probably get hammered for this by the usual crowd but imo we are the biggest club in the world and for me the choice of playing for a tin pot club with a half empty stadium and 5 minutes of history vs playing for historically the biggest club certainly in this country there is no choice.

{Ed002's Note - They want success and don't care for a history lesson.}

10.) 13 Jan 2018 13:03:46
Signing him in the first place wasn't an issued me. Did very well IMO, scored a lot of goals, won trophies but when he tore his ACL, to renew his contract was extremely baffling.

11.) 13 Jan 2018 13:07:02
And Manchester United all of a sudden have no chance of success ed?


{Ed002's Note - That is a stupid comment and not what I said.}

12.) 13 Jan 2018 13:23:54
Stand that is fine if you claim ‘oh but Maze I said this months ago blah blah blah yawn’ but why does that render a great champion of the game “utterly useless”?

The simple answer is it does not. The new deal was a poor decision but your remarks are complete twaddle.

13.) 13 Jan 2018 13:31:30
Don't think he said that, it was more of Sanchez wanting to win trophies and city being better placed to offer those, but if we get a rb, lb, SMS and a replacement for ibra, I don't see why we can't do the same.

Couldn’t agree more beast. Went away yet again not to get beaten rather than trying to take the game to them. Nobody here can tell me man for man Sevilla are a better side than us, so why not attack them, why be happy with a bore draw? Anyone who things a nil nil is a good away score line is mistaken. A score draw not too bad, but a nil nil means we now have to win the return leg. Score draw and we’re out. Pathetic performance once again last night, nothing is inproving.

Let’s all wait until someone is stabbed on the pitch, then we'll sit here and say, "oh he's a professional he cannot act like that". Absolute bull imo. Somebody climbs the advertising boards and runs 50 yards to confront a player who has no idea what this guy is prepared to do, and the player can't react. Everything that's wrong with modern football, full of fairies. The only criminal thing here is if Aguero misses a cup final because of some helmet from the crowd.

The guy swung for Aguero. If the idiot fan doesn’t firstly enter the pitch, and secondly confront the player, the incident doesn’t occur. Nothing wrong with his reaction.
