Few reports saying that Miranda is done Eds, any truth? Do like him as a player!

UnitedWeStand

{Ed004's Note - didn't the club deny it yesterday?}


1.) Sorry mate, haven't seen that. Only thing that worries me is his age.


2.) 29 May 2014 20:23:00
Think you'll find Barca have come in for him.

Is there any interest from us from Maxime Gonalons of Lyon eds?

UnitedWeStand

{Ed002's Note - On a number of occasions Frederic Guerra has said that Gonalons would only leave Lyon for Real or Napoli. Whilst he took over as captain, Arsenal, Manchester United and Monaco were still looking for a deal for the player. Frankly, Guerra remains most likely correct in my view with the interest of Napoli bubbling away and there have been a number of discussions. It has been suggested by someone from Arsenal that they might look again at the player. I would think he would want to speak to Faunier before long.}


1.) Cheers ed. I rate the guy highly, also heard he's a fan of the Bundesliga.

Matic. Wow. I knew he was a good player but I didn't know he was that good. His composure on the ball was excellent, he reads the game so well. He will be a massive miss for Chelsea this year and a massive plus for me.

It's early days but nobody will fancy it against us on that showing. I still feel we need a wide player, everything goes central and today it's worked but against better teams we will need someone to hug the line and give us that wider dimension to pull players out. Enter peresic.

Really surprised at this narrative that people didn't realize how good matic was. All you have to do is sit down and watch a few Chelsea games to understand how great a player he is. I hope it puts the doubters to bed.

Chelsea fans must be fuming they allowed the board to sell.


2.) 13 Aug 2017 20:39:42
To be honest angel in my opinion he wasn't as good as he was today at Chelsea. Seems he had a little more freedom today. That's the best I've seen him play, he was phenomenal. He freed up Pogba too which was also telling.

On a side note surely Martial keeps his place, when he came on Zableta must of died a little inside. "Rashford to martial, give me a break". That said I'm not sure who you drop!


3.) 13 Aug 2017 20:48:55
Well you should really go back and watch him. He didn't just miraculously become a great player today. He has been that good for Chelsea.


4.) 13 Aug 2017 21:05:34
Angel I've seen plenty of him and in my opinion he was better today. Like I say just my two cents.


5.) 14 Aug 2017 00:30:31
Angel. No one is saying he wasn't great for Chelsea, but in the dozens and dozens of matches I've watched him play, that was his best passing performance. It was like watching a Pirlo stuck in a 6'4" body. His long passing out wide was great, but I lost track of the number of times he slid little delicate passes into space in midfield to create chances, like mini-counterattacks with Pogba, Mata or Mickey driving at the defense with multiple options around them. Best I've ever seen matic, and that's not an insult to his time at Chelsea.

What a performance! Just got back from the game and I have to say that is the loudest we have been in a long time, the place was absolutely rocking! I thought Herrera was absolutely phenomenal, the complete action man performence today. His tenacity and ability to stifle play is second. Hazard has just climbed out of his pocket for the evening!

Devastated about the absolute shower last night, especially the first 45 minutes which I think is probably the worst I've ever seen us play.

My question is do people think we will be back? Will we win the title again In the near future? The swashbuckling style of yesteryear seems so long ago and it's gutting to witness.

UnitedWeStand

1.) 11 May 2016 18:24:33
That was the worst you've seen this season?


2.) 11 May 2016 18:46:58
It's a long road back.


3.) 11 May 2016 19:08:44
That wasn't the worst and it isn't a long road back. We got battered for 45 minutes but rose to the challenge and took control in the second half. Unfortunately we gave away stupid fee kicks and could defend set pieces, no excuse for that. At 2-1 up we should have brought on the bog boys to consolidate but once again, slow to react and suddemly it was too late.

LVG has been tortuous and if he stays I think next year will be much of the same. However, the team picked last night could and should have won that game and I think the players are culpable. After the attack on the coach, and knowing it was the last game at Upton Park, the team should have be fired up and chomping at the bit knowing they were in for a battle. They were flat and got bullied, the teams of 93/ 94, 96/ 97, 99/ 01 wouldn't have and that says a lot about the lack of character we have in the squad.

Recently we have lost Evra, Vidic and Ferdinand who were always up for a scrap. Sadly, we look lightweight and whoever we buy this year, we need leaders and people who stand their ground.

I maintain that 2 or 3 quality signings, and a change of Manager, will have us competing again.


4.) 11 May 2016 19:46:33
2 or 3 signings who could fight, would be a start.


5.) 11 May 2016 20:42:23
As soon as Utd scored to make it 1-2 I wanted LVG to bring on Jones in midfield to help with the aerial bombardment.
After the cup game was I the only one who knew exactly what was coming?

I know Jones is not a world beater, on top form and has not played in the first team for months. However he was on the bench and as such must of been good enough for 20 minutes. He would of at least given us some additional muscle to defend against the crosses and free kicks!

I don't simply just blame LVG for our results as the players have something to answer to as well. However for someone of his experience I feel he should be acting to the situation. West Ham used pace and power and out muscled Utd and all we did was bring on Lingard and Januzaj, two featherweights.

I can't imagine players like Vidic, Keane, Scholes, Giggs, Butt, Neville, Becks, or Stam, or Pallister and Bruce not rising to the challenge. At 1-2 they would of closed out the game and picked West Ham off to score another goal.

We have a long way to go and I am happy to wait for a good period for this to happen. However we need the right man at the helm and a plan for the long term. LVG is bringing in some good young players which I like but the style of play and lack of leaders on the pitch is really concerning.


6.) 12 May 2016 08:47:55
Mostly agree AJH, a couple of quality players (CB, energetic MF, winger, striker) would set us on the way again - plus a new manager.

Happy enough with the potential of most of the squad (though they need to show up more often) but more leadership needed to bollock those who are slacking.

John Terry for a season anyone?

"It says a lot about our team that we're worried about this United side"

"The worst United side I've seen in years"

"How is this team in the running"

Just some of the quotes I've taken from the other sites. Is anyone else getting tired of hearing this rubbish? On current form we have the best defence in league, over the last few games we've created much more than people like to give us credit for & our style of play is very similar to that of the great Barce teams(no we're no Barcelona) . when they play possession football it's majestic, when we do it it's boring negative.

I actually like the style we're trying to play & the 40 odd pass goal the other week proves its starting to come together. If we win the league (IF) it won't say champions via possession football, it'll say champions! So sod the haters we are United & we're more than used to it.

2-3 today, hoping for a big Depay performance. Come on boys!!

I noticed that too, the Arsenal site are referring to us as at best average. Not sure I agree re the style, we still need more pace and penetration but controlling the ball is the start point I guess. We just need to keep winning and people will soon change their minds.


2.) 04 Oct 2015 11:21:59
How anyone can say this is the worst team they've seen for years is beyond me.

Correct me if I am wrong, but did we not go through a period where Cleverley and Anderson were first choice? With Valencia and Young wide, and Welbeck with Rooney upfront. now that really is a bad team.


3.) 04 Oct 2015 11:33:21
AJH and the rest, let whoever refer to us as whatever they want. It reflects worse on them when we beat them.

In reality a lot of fans of a lot of different football clubs are envious of the success we have achieved in recent years and will take a pop whenever they can as we have not been hitting the heights in the last couple of years. But now we are slowly getting back to our feet and putting together some nice football while other clubs ie Arsenal are doing the same things over and over again.


4.) 04 Oct 2015 11:36:56
Yes I've noticed that too. I quite like it when everyone writes is off though!


5.) 04 Oct 2015 12:11:27
Fresh didn't that team batter them 8-2.


6.) 04 Oct 2015 12:36:30
Yes, and look at what a terrible team it was! Haha.


7.) 04 Oct 2015 12:44:26
How bad were they then ha.


8.) 04 Oct 2015 13:12:22
I hear you Fresh. AJH my point is mate I don't care (for now) how we win aslong as we win. I'm starting to feel that 'the world hates us' feeling again but that's good. It means we're winning again. Now until we walk out I'm a toffee for a few hours, hoping they pile the pressure of charismatic Brenda.


9.) 04 Oct 2015 13:20:18
I don't know who said its the worst United side in years because they obviously forgot about the moyes year and to some extent last year. This year you are clearly moving forward, you have a good base and he know his team and shape now. But I do agree you are still currently average to good at times. Even against Wolfsburg at home in places they made you look average despite the win. And that never happens at OT. You probably can scoff because we have had some shockers this year. But if we can find our knackers and come out and play think we will put a few past you.

I will come on guys after the game to either roll in the roses or eat the s**t.

Good clean game with no Reffing howlers. May the best team win.

Peace

Nice one grow hopefully another classic between the 2 great premier league sides.

Anybody that has seen the lad more than once able to share what type of player Martial is & what we can expect to see from him? I haven't seen enough of him to know more than what I hear.

1.) 02 Sep 2015 12:44:36
He's a talented version of Welbeck.


2.) 02 Sep 2015 13:44:43
Welbeck with talent lol😆😆😆


3.) 02 Sep 2015 14:41:13
Please Shappy don't liken him to Welbeck, it sends shivers down my spine.

I've watched him a lot mate. I like German football & he has always been on the slow side. He is definitely not as quick as most PL Cbs. If LVG employs a high defensive line, which I think he will then Hummels would struggle with balls in behind him. Varane is much quicker.

Said it before and I'll say it again Hummels is too slow for the PL. He will be exposed iMO. Varane all day long.

I posted earlier Syd asking for peoples opinions on him but it didn't get through. I think he's awesome, would be my number 1 choice. However I see him signing a nee deal with the mob.
