Really enjoying the site much more since Ed02 is back glad you didn't let the goons spoil it for the rest of us (other eds do a great job also). I know where linked with players that may b attainable in jan but do you know if it is likely to happen or just excuses made and wait until summer? Another note every time I watch ozil play I riles me to think he was gettable and would b the answer to our midfield woes and considering we were close before he went to madrid I really thought we could of got him. Were we close or even interested sorry I no its old news? United 99 {Ed002's Note - It is not for want of trying that players have been missed by MU, and indeed all clubs. Clubs rarely plan for buying in the January transfer window - and pretty much nobody plans to sell in January. It will be difficult to do too much.}


1.) Cheers ed.

2.) United made a bid for ozil the same time as Madrid. The player chose where he wanted to go as it was his 'dream' move

Reading some of the posts on this longstanding forum in the last few years is hard. In a forum your going to get different views and debate which can sometimes get heated which is fine and also a good read and helps see other fellow fans views. It's the "Toxic" side that is hard to read. I see as more spoilt than toxic the way some posts are so dismissive of potential targets but more so of "deadwood" players that have given us pivotal moments in Utd shirts that contributed to success for our club. So to just say get rid of the deadwood is harsh. To demand Jose buys to build for a future and then say if he doesn't win something this season he's finished is daft. The whole he buys elder players n shoves youth out reteric is nonsense rash Jesse mctom haven't been pushed out. Rom pog Bailey linderloff miki are all young so that can't b used against him. Give him until his contract runs out. The eds have done that good job from the days b4 individual club sites to the vast informative broad beast it is now that it's got way more traffic but it's definitely not as fun knowing one of the eds is not enjoying contributing there knowledge to his/ her (all the eds) site because a few spoilt 21st century goons decide to use this site like they do Twitter and just abuse the eds but more so to just be "toxic" with there views. So just chat debate n post rumours no matter how vague or far fetched they are. It's this time of year we need all the eds on board.

I don't buy the 'spoilt' line. We have spent a fortune, have immense resources yet deliver turgid football.

We all want the team to do well and to be entertained, just because we provided a great service previously it doesn't mean we should accept anything now - especially as there is no logical reason for the performances to be so poor to watch.

Nobody expects us to win every game playing incredible football, but consistently being awful to watch is going to grind gears. You go for a nice meal, you will go back there again, if the service slips you will give it a while then maybe you will start asking questions if there is no sign of improvement or simply stop going! Unlike restaurants we only have one team (or should have), so we are held over a barrel with our support - that support is abused because the manager should have 'entertaining/ attacking football' as a key KPI as a manager of our club. He clearly doesn't have that remit so it's all about money, which is not what people support Utd for.

This is a website to discuss the good, bad, ugly and whenever we do actually play well you see nothing but praise on this website - it's just you can count on one hand how many times we performed to the level expected, (or even close to it) last season.

So not spoilt - disappointed is more appropriate and constructively critical for the most part! And justifiably to, any other team wasting the talent and money we have had would have their fans getting angry as well, a lot sooner than ours have started to turn I feel - despite the stark contrast between now and before.

2.) 25 May 2018 12:57:38
That’s a really good post beast. Perhaps I am a glass half full sort of person so I think the new signings will really take us up a level.

3.) 25 May 2018 15:56:47
Utd the toxic side you mention doesn't per se exist, there are fans on both sides of the mourinho argument that have issues with certain players and there is nothing wrong with it, calling someone deadwood might be a bit unfair but if you are not doing well given what you earn you are going to get backlash.

Also in what world are 24, 25 and 27 yr olds young. Lukaku, Pogba, jesse and especially mkhi can not be considered young. Rashford, mctominay and martial are young and just google when was the last time either of those started 2 consecutive games and then tell me mourinho doesn't like kids is a fallacy.

4.) 25 May 2018 19:27:21
United99. You're fully entitled to your views. But to call anyone who disagrees with the way the club is run and Mourinho's tactics and treatment of players as "toxic" is really pathetic and you're trying to be so PC. what's wrong with critisizing someone if you can see major fault in their systems? Or shall we all shut up and just go along with the flow even though we've won no trophies, performed shambolically in matches against the lesser teams, lost out to a below average Seville team, lost without a fight against Chelsea in the FA cup, seen our manager berate and demean players publically and create a terrible atmosphere within the club. Oh yeah, we're the "toxic" ones, but mourinho is all nice.
And your post mentioned 21st century supporters, that made me laugh at the shear deluded nature of your post. Many of us have been supporting United for over 50 years, which is long enough to know right from wrong.

Excellent post Beast.

6.) 26 May 2018 02:00:52
To be fair, I've read this page for years and this is the first time I've been on for weeks because of the toxic bull that's spouted daily. Sadly think it'll be the last too, so unfortunately I don't disagree with you 99

Was a nice few years but I believe in getting behind my club and team regardless of who's in the shirt. This constant, and if you read back the last few months it is constant, more and more do nothing but complain. We've turned into the scousers on here.

Will miss the reports Ed's and thanks for putting up with this lot for all this time. This page has been bookmarked on my last 4 phones, no more. Sad day.

7.) 26 May 2018 05:52:42
Mike - It's constructive critiques - often after the disappointing matches/ performances. Every single one of us gets behind the team and wants us to do well, you need to step off your pedestal mate.

This snowflake culture needs to be snapped out of, there's a real world out there with differing views - a forum discussing Man Utd is not meant to be your personal echo chamber, especially if things aren't looking as good as they should be more often than not.

So my advice is be brave, keep the page bookmarked and open your mind to alternative views. Even if those views are wrong or contrary to your own, you will evolve. Good luck.

P. S - 'Turning into the Scousers' isn't exactly the best cuss you can use at the moment. Our boys are on the beach, Liverpool are doing something different today!

Wowzer I just had a read of the arsenal page n some1 asked a question abt 1st and 2nd striker to which edd02 replied but then another poster gave a cocky(ish) response and edd02 ripped them a new 1! So I'm guessing edd02 is a female? Shame he/she has been forced off our page? I'm just saying I miss the bluntness of there itk retorts on utd page but the other edds are doing a stellar job of interacting with us belligerent relentless posters on one of the original/best pages the man utd page


{Ed002's Note - I would rather give anal birth to a live porcupine than provide any more information to the vegetables here.}

1.) 20 Jul 2015 23:58:17
Descriptive enough to get your message across😂

2.) 21 Jul 2015 01:23:32
Haha,fantastically succinct and acerbic retort Ed! My own personal favourite is; I'd rather be buggered by a syphilitic grizzly. Call the hyperbole police already. :o)

3.) 20 Jul 2015 23:48:22
Once was enough I guess.

We are not all vegetables Ed, in fact i'm a tomato (which is actually a fruit by the way)

5.) 21 Jul 2015 07:47:22
Lol that a favoured line ed? I saw the Chelsea fans got the same

6.) 21 Jul 2015 08:08:09
I think a epidural would b needed for that ed? Fair doos tho you obv got sick of some of the goons on here n by your stance it kinda confirms your r a lady because us blokes woulda been drawn out by now? But keep up the banter edd02 n please dip in and out when one of us tools catches your eye n put us in our place in your very dry succinct way.



09 Jun 2015 22:14:59
Well it's that time of year I (n most others) check our rumour sites n this one has been a mainstay since nearly day 1 for me n credit to the eds it's been expanded to a huge n expansive level! It's now a good read for genuine footy fans. I'm a utd fan 1st but a footy fan aswell so like a read of other teams pages and the other rumour pages! So when I read on other teams pages and the eds seem to have good relations with the posters n seem to feel appreciated it p----s me off that some goons on our page have spoilt the relations wiv the eds (espesh ed02) I'm not sure what happened but can imagine!! So I guess I'm apologising for the tools who spoilt it for the rest of us n hoping us posters can redeem ourselves n get the eds back on side n appreciate they take time out of there lives to give us this forum. Ass kissing over ha




23 Feb 2014 02:11:30
I know this site is a different read if we've won but I tend to agree with most posts after today's game I felt more confident after 20 mins in this game than I have all season and I believe the wig gives our attack more cover and a good start for the build up play? It wasn't an amazing performance but a good stepping stone! The personnel tday allowed us to play good football when going forward? Yes only palace but after the season we've had that was no given that we'd win and win comfortabley so a good start hopefully to a good run ready for the lpool game?




15 Dec 2013 22:58:21
A much better feeling this wknd and I can buy a paper tmoz! Watching the play tday showed what a creative forward thinking midfield can do and in coutinho they have a very good one and I can now see why Henderson was hyped up as he's starting to show now! On to us we r slowly becoming moyseys utd and with a few buys I think it'll work? i'm not clevs biggest fan but in the last 2 games I've seen signs and 1 more creative ball playing midfielder I thnk clevs progress wiv less pressure. Someone like modric or mata. Felliani is struggling with the step up but once he can play his role in a settled midfield I think he'll do well? Adnan is refreshing to see he wants the ball and loves to go 4wad just needs to work on final ball. i'm optimistic for nxt few yrs its just gunna b bumpy and rough on the way?

Wow this site is full of negativity. Who knows if ole will fail or prosper? City and pool didn’t need much n haven’t done much upto now. Leicester have signed a player they had on loan. Not many other clubs have done much as of yet. Whilst I agree that if we start the season with our current squad we will endure a tough season but to write it off before it’s started and to already decide ole is a failure is terrible. I used to love supporting Utd and visiting these forums but they make dour reading these days. The whole thing above because an agent made a throw away remark about his client attracting interest from other clubs your all in meltdown. It seems a lot of you are waiting to say told you so? God help ole with the “support” he’s getting from our “supporters”.

Just another chance to bash Utd n claim were a badly run club ha. Maybe he/ we doesn't want to play for another prem team whom we could get 15-20 mil from? He's not good enough for the top 2 in the Italian n Spanish lges so turkey seems a good move n he'll still get champs lge. 10mil with a year to go is probably abt right. This market is stupid n over inflated for players with different circumstances than the wigs.

Haha I like the sarcasm n reading my post back it did seem I implied I knew what ronaldo and benzema were thinking? I was merely saying from what I seen he linked up well with them and they seemed to appreciate his assist and runs? I really do value your opinions and don't want to antagonise u as others have! I just think he's worth 1 more season as other achievable targets are not much more accomplished alternatives to angel? Another bad season we take a 15-20 mil blow or a good season and we have the player we want. Ps I don't know ronny or benzema but could probs get u a Jason walker shirt who plays for my local club barrow who are conference north champs no less! Not the same pull as ronny but may fetch over a fiver ha?

U feel strong on this di maria thing hey ed? I like it n stand ya ground but I'll stand mine I don't think it's the players around him that make him play well I just think he's not been consistent or shown what he can do? I do watch a lot of Spanish footy n when I watched Madrid the players I noticed (not stood out) were alonso modric n di maria! The 1st two were real solid unselfish team players and angel was more of a flair version who could not only pick a pass but could beat a man! Ronaldo n benzema would love him back and at times you could c his link up wiv Rooney n mata was there as I hope it will b next season? I agree his 1st season hasn't been what's required of a 60mil marquee signing but let's hope he kicks on I'd rather him do that than have 3-4 months of good footy then show nothing like the afor mentioned ozil n bale have at there clubs. Not a dig just a opinion


{Ed007's Note - You noticed Di Maria because he runs about like a headless chicken all over the park, I must have blinked and missed the flair you're on about.
P.S. Seeing you're so friendly with Ronaldo and Benzema any chance of getting a couple of signed tops we could use as prizes on the sites? And if Ronaldo ever reminisces with you again about players he misses etc ask him what he thought of Roy Keane for me, thanks.}

I've never read a ed response n felt the need to respond because it's usualy accurate n I tend to agree! I watch a fair bit of Spanish football and 2/3 seasons ago di maria started to change my opinion of him! When he signed for them I remember we were linked so I looked out for him and I thought we dodged a bullet he seemed a slightly better version of nani(basically pants) but since then he's progressed and I beleive become a vital part of Madrid winning things like alonso, modric? Yes ronny n benzema get them goals but those 3 make them tick and angel had nailed the role given to him he looked to me t be a good buy (in today's market) I did think he'd adapt fairly easily but he hasn't. I still beleive he'll show his class so hope we stick with him? But like 'twas said the reason footballs so great is it divides opinion. Ps great read all season n part of my football ritual so big thanks t the edds for the thankless task they do

Well said dodgy, the run we had was great for us to watch and enjoy football again. Other factors were a part of it but ole delivered that and since fergies rvp season I’ve not enjoyed a run of games as I did them games. Yes it’s a risk and may well not work out but the “safe” bets of Jose n lvg didn’t work so I’m on board with this regime and new outlook and urge the rest of our support to do the same.

All of the reply’s to the “rashford quotes” nobody responds to morts post that it’s all bs from the worst paper in England! His brother/ agent has even said its bull. The lad is young and had a 7 outa 10 season. if we had him in a fergie side where he wasn’t carrying the can for his mistakes he would be allowed to flourish. Not because he’s English but because he’s a young talent he should be given time.

Brilliant post park. Too many of our fans are believing the media narrative of hating on Jose. He even gets hate on "Potential" signings and "potential" outgoings" that the media make up. Fergies farewell speech he said the fans need to support the new manager which tbf we have but the mood at the moment is of waiting for Jose to fail to turn on him.

Top fan u eh Shan? Giving a 20yr old lad who plays for his hometown club that he's progressed through the ranks a hard time. He single handedly dragged us through the lvg season and he's now experiencing a dip in form n boom u turn on him. You'd rather we sell him n buy rashfordinhio? What a melt.

Fair do's mancman and I suppose we all share the love for Utd n want the same thing. I just felt/ feel that the people who didn't want him in the 1st place have used this blip to sound off but it just seems premature to me. As for confidence in the team the managers job is to instil that but also to question players efforts n pull them up on it when there off it. Saturday was the worse I've felt since city pipped us to the prem. it was mainly down to effort that I got annoyed so joses right to call them out n there big boys they should deal with it. Fergie used to go nuts he even sliced becks head open but the players had a respect/ fear of fergie n the way ex players talk abt Jose he has the same vibe. He's a big part of the reason 3-4 of our new signings are here. (Which is not right I'd play for Utd wiv a goldfish in charge) I just think there are mitigating circumstances for our current slump ask the bin dippers if they'd swap our predicament for there's.
