Craig Norwood has just tweeted that Perisic is due for a medical this weekend.

No he never.

My bad. someone tweeted from a copy/ fake account of CN.

Di Marzio thinks Griezmann is off to Bayern and Utd are going for Mbappe.

Can't see Bayern paying such a high fee.

Feel a bit of perspective is missing here today.

We won the game last night. It wasn't pretty but it was game 3 of 4 in 11 days and 72 hours after playing Chelsea with 10 men for an hour.

Pogba getting injured is a bad thing, he is a good player which any of our rivals would love to have. He has had some bad games and some good. Last night he showed some good work.

The performance wasn't great but there a mitigating circumstances.

Mouriniho is being a moody sod - no shock there. But he has a point about the fixtures and the pitch in Rostov.

3 points by hook or by crook on Sunday and everyone can be happy bunnies until the next game.

Utd Road

The post on the banter page seemingly celebrating pogba being injured makes me feel embarrassed to be a United fan.

2.) 17 Mar 2017 19:09:31
I get that a lot nowadays gds I popped on the live chat last night and left after seeing a jose out post .
It's getting pathetic.

Live in age where instant success is demanded instead of longetivity.

4.) 18 Mar 2017 04:55:36
They have the right to say that as a fan GDS. but that doesn't make them any smarter or more right. It's easy to criticize but not able to do things they think can be done easily. Just continue supporting and read selectively 😂😂😂. I've come to terms with that.
I am sure even if we win all the titles and cups there is to win, the moment we lose a game all the negativity will come back. 😂😂😂.

5.) 18 Mar 2017 07:41:19
It's a fine balance of playing your role as a fan and supporting the team and being able voice opinions.

My view is for 90 mins you back the players and manager as we are branches of the same tree (the club) . When the game is done it is time to discuss and review and there is an element of free speech here.



27 Feb 2017 16:49:17
So does anyone believe the rumour that Zlatan will leave at the end of the season?

Utd Road

1.) 27 Feb 2017 17:02:13
He staying lol.

2.) 27 Feb 2017 20:56:17
I'm not saying I believe it, but think it is properly narcissistic to want to tease the fans / press.

I guess he will do 1 or 2 more seasons.

3.) 27 Feb 2017 21:14:10
It's smart business by his agent, probably get a pay rise aswell from it, tbh he deserves it.

4.) 27 Feb 2017 21:22:00
If we get cl otherwise i'm not sure.

5.) 27 Feb 2017 23:36:22
Good point on the pay rise but isn't it a simple activation of a 2nd year of pre agreed terms?

Perhaps he is trying to leverage a 3rd year?

6.) 28 Feb 2017 09:29:26
Not sure on his contract structure if it a pre-agreement with either a club option or a player option tbh

Maybe one of the Eds can shed some light on it.

{Ed002's Note - He is on a one year contract with the option of a second year if both he and the club agree. It is very simple.}



26 Feb 2017 08:23:59
Sunday Mirror report we are in for Donnaruma.

Express report De Gea pushing to go to Real and is concerned he will miss his chance if Courtois goes.

Probably elements of truth in both.

Donnaruma would be a sound replacement.

Utd Road

1.) 26 Feb 2017 14:23:35
I don't think he will go. he's had ample opportunity before and not done so. Spanish or not I think he will be with us after the Summer.

2.) 26 Feb 2017 20:03:14
If R. Madrid come knocking DeGea will go, no doubt about it.
Donnaruma will be the next big thing IMO, he has already played 50+ games of top level football and at such a young age still, he could be with us for 15years.

3.) 26 Feb 2017 22:42:57
Only way De Gea leaves United if he puts in a transfer request in, United will obviously fight tooth and nail to keep him here, personally why do you want leave, your likely going to be United no1 until your retire unlike Real Madrid where they will either toss you out when you start declining or the next De Gea comes along.

4.) 26 Feb 2017 23:40:10
@Gordon when he had the chance to go he took it and a fax machine kept him at Utd.

The way the article is pitched is if Courtois signs he won't get the chance to go back to Spain playing at the elite level as ter Stegan and Courtois as youngish. And that is why he's going to push for the move.

I agree Donnaruma would be a good choice to come in but don't see it happening.

5.) 27 Feb 2017 10:09:07
If De Gea goes will need to go all out on Donnamruma, don't think I seen as a talented kid for a goalkeeper in my life, even the likes of Buffon, Casillas and De Gea who were pretty good at a young age didn't have his quality at the ages of 17/ 18.

6.) 28 Feb 2017 23:57:47
Utd Road. I know what you mean but from what I read at the time (could be pure conjecture) but that made DDG doubt how much he was really wanted at the time by Madrid. He's a hero here and always will be. his successive player of the season awards speak volumes. I may be an optimist but I don't think EVERY Spaniard would leave England (especially us) for the big two. I think Herrera will become a club legend too and turn down one or both in the next couple of years when the Barcelona lads retire.

7.) 01 Mar 2017 15:13:14
Shane88. I agree most Spaniards including DDG would leave for a chance to play for the bog 2 in La Liga. Only the fax machine prevented the deal last time

Romeo has played well in the cup matches this year but is not in the same class as DDG
Donnamruma will be difficult to sign. He is a lifelong Milan fan and now playing for them
His idol is Buffon who has spent his entire career in Italy
Historically the Italian national team has always had a preference to picking players who play in their national league

Basically, he is a fan of the club he is playing for, playing in his home country and living in the trendiest part of Italy

Would you give that up to come to rainy Manchester with potential home sickness and language issues

I think we need to prioritise the scouting for a new keeper but unfortunately i don't think that can be Donnamruma.

Perisic, Rose and Aureir to close the window.

Utd Road

1.) 10 Aug 2017 16:07:41
it's going to take 3 people to close the window.

How big is this window?

2.) 10 Aug 2017 17:20:48
Utd road, don't know why you were down-voted;maybe they feel the transfers are not achievable.

But right now, if we can get these 3, it'll be difficult to wipe the smirk away from my face even in my sleep.

3.) 10 Aug 2017 18:10:00
Not all flashy names, but a window of Lukaku, Lindelof, Matic, Aurier, Rose and Perisic will have strengthened most of our weaknesses and will mean we have a very good first team and squad and a great shot at the league this season. Disagree if you want, but that's the way I see it. I can also see Zlatan being brought back too for the second half of the season.

Roll on these 3 signings and the season 😀.



21 Jul 2017 18:43:06
Could Perisic and Dier/ Matic be smokescreens for Neymar and Verrati?

Probably not but would be amazing!

Utd Road

1.) 21 Jul 2017 19:15:13
'Smokescreen' has replaced this supposed 'surprise' signing jose had planned for the most nonsense phrase of this window.

2.) 21 Jul 2017 19:40:17
Think the surprise was lukaku.

3.) 21 Jul 2017 20:30:06
Does anyone actually realise Jose despises the media? He likes the attention but he will never tell it as it is. Anders was nearly out from being so honest with the media. Why does everyone take what he tells them as gospel? The smokescreen is what he says to the rags!

4.) 21 Jul 2017 20:43:14
Don't know about Anders comment, as i never actually found out why he fell out of favour but couldn't agree more with comments about the media.

5.) 21 Jul 2017 20:58:35
I maybe wrong. But I'm sure it was to do with the derby game and saying how much it means, when Jose was playing it down. I am sure it wasn't as big a thing as made out. But Jose likes to keep people guessing. He doesn't like people knowing the plot ahead of the plot happening.

6.) 21 Jul 2017 22:09:23
He fell out with Herrera because Herrera was flirting with Barcelona on international duty.

7.) 21 Jul 2017 20:02:59
DSG, "smokescreen" is the one word I cringe over every window. People use it like we're playing games 😂.



11 Jun 2017 19:30:30
Hoping the Morata deal comes off exceptional player.

Utd Road

1.) 11 Jun 2017 20:43:24
Define exceptional.

{Ed007's Note - Rooneyesque?}

2.) 11 Jun 2017 21:51:42
Hes a tad better than the rooney of today.

3.) 12 Jun 2017 10:59:32
Forgot to add - 😂😂.

4.) 12 Jun 2017 11:07:04
If Morata comes to Man Utd I'll support him, I would not however describe him as exceptional. 188 games 58 goals since his first season of top level club football in the 2010/ 11 season. His six/ seven years of top level football suggest his not a 20 league goals a year player but it's a team game and Jose must want him for a reason. To put some perspective on it as a lot of people feel Morata is top quality and to highlight how lucky England are to have him. Harry Kane in 88 club appearances has scored 63 goals.

5.) 12 Jun 2017 11:22:23
rewz while i am not the biggest fan of morata, one of the biggest reasons for poor nos is the fact that he does not start many games, i think he can be good if given a consistent run in the team, he was the second highest scorer for madrid after ronaldo despite having lower starts than likes of benzema.

6.) 12 Jun 2017 07:21:30
Bond. Would that be the Rooney of today or 10 years ago. Morata is nowhere near as good as the Rooney of yesteryear, despite what some on here would have you believe.

{Ed007's Note - You wanted the definition of exceptional ;)

7.) 12 Jun 2017 12:02:23
CS Moyes, people keep bringing up that he doesn't start many games. When he was at Juve for 2 seasons he played 46 games in his first season and 47 in his second season starting most of those games in 93 games he scored 27 goals in all competitions.

I'm not saying he's not a good player, I'm just saying he doesn't have a history of being prolific. When you consider goals have been our problem this season is Morata the answer?

8.) 12 Jun 2017 17:03:02
Rewz; in his first season with Juventus he started 11 league games and in his second he started 16 league games. He also had to play second fiddle to Tevez and Dybala (who, for what it's worth, I'd much rather we splashed the cash on if it was in any way possible) respectively. In spite of this; he managed 15 league goals across both seasons.

In a different league, acting as the focal point of a team playing to his strengths - I could see him scoring plenty of goals for us next season. Given our interest, I would imagine that Jose envisages us playing a style of football that will suit him.

I wouldn't go as far as to say that he will be an exceptional signing by any means (although it's possible he could be) - but on the other hand I think that he's a much better player than his stats would suggest and believe he has the attributes to do a very good job for us if properly utilized.

9.) 12 Jun 2017 17:29:57
Now now red seven down with that sort of thing. that sort of positivity is pure madness. Its much easier to pick holes in a player before he has kicked a ball for us. he hasn't even signed a deal yet and he is not good enough.

10.) 12 Jun 2017 17:44:43
Hey Redseven, I wasn't aware that he played such a bit part at Juve. Jose knows what he's doing and knows the player so I'm sure it will be a good signing if it comes off.



21 May 2017 22:52:14
Demi Mitchell was fantastic today, Harrop for his goal and Angel Gomes for his age will take the headlines but watch Mitchell looks like the one closet to the first team.

Positioning was good, Zaha had a quite game, great pass to Rooney, overlapping runs - the kid has it all.

Most remarkably he has only been playing Left Back this season.

Tuanzabe and Fosu looked excellent also but they are little more experienced.

Thought Mou let himself down again today and I'm getting bored of his snaked arse antics.

As an advocate to get Mou I can 100% say he is the wrong man for us regardless of trophies.

The young lads who played today won't get a look in next season. The club will waste money on squad players rather than looking at U23s and Mou will play defensive. Have you noticed our full backs rarely cross the half way line?

Let's hope we play the way Man Utd do rather than grinding a 1-0. but this season we will take what we can get.

Utd Road

1.) 21 May 2017 23:01:31
I think he should of give the young lads some praise .
Not doing a lap with the players seems odd.

2.) 21 May 2017 23:29:37
Mourinho will play these lads again maybe in EFL cup next season they are too good not to. The future is bright Gomes is going to be a Worldie 😆😆.

3.) 21 May 2017 23:59:33
Mitchell was always one of the ones that people thought would eventually break through, but he seemed to have fallen down the pecking order over the last couple of seasons. Glad to see him play well today, and give a reminder of his ability. Delighted for Harrop, too. One of those young, local players that tends to get overlooked a little, as we all clamour for the next sexy, young foreign kid.

{Ed007's Note - And so it begins.... First one to say Mitchell will be the best LB in the world in a few years gets banned - no excuse!
Gomes is going to be a worldie! (facepalm) All the hours I spend editing these pages and I can't remember either of them being mentioned.
What age are these players and if they're so good why are they only getting their chance in a meaningless end of season game?
Harrop? Local lad, 21, 22 this year but we'll still call him a youngster - bound to be a future Ballon d'Or winner!}

4.) 22 May 2017 00:52:02
Now, now, grumpy-drawers Bond. You're obviously still hungover from the recent celebrations. At no point have I claimed either of them are going to be the next best thing. But if you follow the youth sides, as I have to, to warrant the wife let me keep MUTV, you would know the club always thought a lot of Mitchell. As for Harrop, he may well never get another game for United, but I was delighted to see one of the more unsung players get his moment in the sun.

{Ed007's Note - Many, MANY moons have passed since I had a hangover and I don't miss them one bit lol I'm just at the wind up and we could swap the names with plenty from over the years but as Led Zep said, the song remains the same. ;-)
I've seen the future and Paddy Roberts is his name!}

5.) 22 May 2017 01:21:12
You can't really lose playing younger players in games like that they either come off and you get one for the first team squad or someone like Sunderland give us a couple of million for them it's a win either way.

{Ed007's Note - Exactly. Maybe Jose was putting them in the shop window, it's a bit snyde if you're 21 and just making your first team debut.}

6.) 22 May 2017 01:37:02
Good business model unless you buy them back a couple of year later for ten times the price, and look like del boy on a Christmas special.

{Ed007's Note - I thought that but didn't want to get the Welbeck supporters excited before Ed002 breaks her silence or her hubby does a pod thing.}

7.) 22 May 2017 06:57:59

I mentioned Mitchell on here years ago after he played for England schoolboys, particularly noted his balance. I have mentioned Gomes a few times. They need to develop physically and show the right mentality now.

{Ed007's Note - But they've not been lauded like your Cleverleys, Welbecks and countless others that were all going to be superstars for Utd.}



14 Apr 2017 21:52:29
Last night we played well and took an away goal.

A few teams seen as better than us have been defeated at Anderlecht.

Yet again fine margins - post, good saves and sloppy finishing prevented the win.

A good summer signing or two will see us right.

Every draw that we should of won shows us we are getting the tactical side correct and we need to focus on the mental side and upgrading with new signings.

Utd Road

1.) 15 Apr 2017 19:06:16
Not sure that drawing against poor teams shows the tactics are correct and I'd expect more than 1 or 2 signings this summer but making chances and not scoring is better than not creating chances like last season.

Expect a title challenge next season.

2.) 16 Apr 2017 06:32:41
I have to disagree mate. I don't think we are good enough to win the uefa and will also finish outside top 4 and another season in Uefa.

We are anemic when it comes to scoring goals and almost nothing from midfield. It either Zlatan or the odd goal from someone. TBH quite disappointed with Pogba and for 90 mill you would expect a much better contribution in terms of goals/ assists especially given where he is playing.

I see another summer of big spending with 4 or 5 coming in and 3 or 4 being shipped out and then the buck stops as there will be no where to hide if we do not perform better next year.

If and I doubt it would happen CR7 would be looking at £400k. Commercially he would probably generate a significant amount in revenue that make it worth while.

What I have seen so far Lukaku has looked great.

I think that his preference to be running at goal and stretches the opposition defence and creates space for the other players such as Mhiki.

Whereas Zlatan would receive the ball back to goal and move backwards alot.
