Do United still hold interest in Mourinho's summer targets such as the likes of Perisic and Alderweireld? Or can we expect a compromise of sorts due to other's clear resistance at signing 'older' players?

If Mourinho is to stay then surely the board either need to go after his targets, or Mourinho is made to shift his approach and target different players which would completely go against who he is and the type of player he has targeted historically.

Can we expect to see any youth players step up as the season progresses or will that purely be down to any injuries to first-team players?

I suspect we will have a very quiet January window due to the uncertainty of the managers position. We might see a player or two leave if the right offers cone in for the right players (Darmian, Rojo ect maybe) .

But I don't see any significant players joining, at most maybe a youngster or two for the academy.


2.) 05 Dec 2018 15:08:56
I think the same Shappy. When the January window closes we will have a good idea as to Mourinho’s fate.


3.) 05 Dec 2018 15:34:45
I think if a player who is of top quality becomes avaliable such as alderweireld we would still go in for him because even if a new manager comes in, he's not the type of player who can't adapt to a new manager.

But agree we should use the january window to get rid of players. Romero, valencia, young, smalling, jones, rojo, herrera, matic, fellaini, periera, sanchez, darmian etc would probably be for sale before you even get to players who want to leave such as pogba bailly and martial.


4.) 05 Dec 2018 18:02:40
I think we could see a much busier January window in general than previous years. With the summer window shutting early I think there were lots of potential deals not completed because the selling clubs were reluctant to lose players with little time to replace them.
I guess time will tell, eh.


 

 

07 Aug 2018 11:41:29
It's getting late in the window but if Pogba does leave in the coming days would anyone take Ramsey as his replacement?

I'm not saying it will happen, just trying to draw names who could replace PP if he leaves.

Last season Ramsey scored more goals, same assists per minute, less shots per goal, more on target, same passing accuracy, less cards. He basically does what we employ Pogba to do but a bit better in a weaker team (! ) .

Probably be available for a reasonable price with 1 year remaining on his contract and would take up half of the wages that Pogba does.

Would anyone else take Ramsey or offer up any other names we've not already been linked with?

Wazza

1.) 07 Aug 2018 11:49:00

Pjanic
Modric
Kovacic

4.) 07 Aug 2018 13:17:21
Prefer Verrati to any of them.


5.) 07 Aug 2018 13:54:34
Bolger,

I presume you mean Eriksen? They want £60m for a defender in the last year of his contract, I imagine Levy would want £250m for Eriksen, no thanks.


6.) 07 Aug 2018 12:56:14
Bolger - iirc we were favourites to sign Eriksen around the time he was breaking through at Ajax but SAF thought he was too slow for the Premier League. I seem to remember us playing Ajax at the time and he did stand out.

He's a great player to watch on his day.


7.) 07 Aug 2018 14:03:12
Pogba is better than all of them. There is nobody we could realistically sign who will be anywhere near as capable as Pogba. Disaster if we sell him.


8.) 07 Aug 2018 14:52:00
yeah GDS that one,

not the phone company.


9.) 07 Aug 2018 14:54:14
so72,

he does have the ability to be one of the best, but he doesn't have the work rate to fulfill this.

if we are honest with ourselves he hasn't done anything to warrent the fee we paid.

if players don't want to play for us then just get rid.


10.) 07 Aug 2018 16:46:19
If we sell him we will regret it. I reckon Pogba absolutely does want to play for Utd, he doesn't get used to his strength and doesn't like Mourinho - a very common occurence it would seem. The boy has immense talent, he has ego and he bossed the World Cup with France. Whoever replaces Moirinho (when he inevitably gets the sack) will want Pogba in their team!


11.) 07 Aug 2018 17:37:31
I wish that you are right so72 however I don't think he cares about the club, only himself.


12.) 08 Aug 2018 17:27:50
Pogba has been played in a midfield two and played very well, and then in a three (his preferred position if his large agent is to be believed) and he has flattered to deceive.

I don’t buy into this whole Mourinho doesn’t get the best out of him nonsense. Midfielders should be able to play with tactical discipline and still express themselves. He hasn’t really done that since he’s returned, definitely not at the level FIFA players seem to think he is capable of. I don’t particularly like my manager, but I still have a job to do and I like the company I work for, therefore I do it to the best of my ability. PS I’m not getting paid 300k per week for it.

So regardless of ‘unfinished business’ at United for him, and taking misplaced romanticism out of the equation, he has been a disappointment and done little to show he is capable of performing week in, week out in the premier League. He has bags of ability but I’m not sure he has the mentality to really make a difference at our club. Give me SMS, Pjanic, Modric over him any day of the week.

TFM off to Palace on a season long loan. Potentially good move for all parties.

Wazza

1.) 07 Aug 2017 13:01:44
Good move if he gets the game time wazza i agree.


2.) 07 Aug 2017 13:29:33
Second that. excellent move so long as he gets game time!


3.) 07 Aug 2017 13:31:35
Definitely a great move, he is only 19 and looks to have stagnated a little not getting any first team opportunities. I think he will get in regularly for Palace and come back a much better player for it. Axel has looked more assured than him when they have played and I think that is down to Axel playing a lot of football last season while TFM sat on the bench not getting any minutes.

Hi Eds,

You mentioned a few weeks back that Herrera may be available after an incident between him and Mourinho. I'm hoping that has settled down now but there's fresh talk of Barcelona wanting him especially since Ernesto Valverde has worked with him previously.

Is there any truth in this?

Wazza

{Ed002's Note - Yes there is. Even though the issue has been resolved and Herrera is intended to stay, Ernesto Valverde has him as one of the players he has identified to Barcelona that he would like them to try and get. Barcelona has a negotiating difficulty right now so it may not happen immediately.}


1.) 25 May 2017 12:38:33
Thanks 002.

It would be a shame to lose a player of his quality just as he enters his peak years.

With just over a year left on his contract do you know if talks are ongoing?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea about contract talks Wazza. The situation is as I have explained.}


2.) 25 May 2017 13:03:07
This makes sense. When I've watched his interview regarding Captaincy and a few others around that time, he looked very off and down. As if he knew in the long run he wasn't committing himself for us! I hope he stays. Is De Gea RM no1 target ed/ s? Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid wanted someone else but have settled on de Gea at this time. They have a back up plan as well but that is not going well for them.}


3.) 25 May 2017 13:14:03
Thank you as always Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Wazza.}


4.) 25 May 2017 16:48:00
Cr92, with all respect, how do you know Herrera's mind by him looking down during the interview? Maybe he was just looking for the right words in English.


5.) 25 May 2017 18:48:28
Looking abit off, not his usual bubbly enthusiastic self. I don't want him to go but and it could've jus been that he doesn't feel like he deserves the captaincy or like he's ready for it.


 

 

17 May 2017 18:34:45
Hi Eds, is Tielmens to Monaco a done deal or is there a chance another team such as MU could steal the deal?

Update on the 'United V Arsenal or I'm a Celeb' dilemma.

I watched the game and was mostly entertained. It's been a while since I enjoyed watching us play and it was a bit like the Arsenal v Spurs game for periods, where both teams were gong for it. Rashford, Herrera and Lingard in particular were impressive with the energy the brought to the team.

We gave the ball away a fair bit but it was mostly in the opposition half trying to make something happen, which we can live with.

Sloppy mistakes cost us again, I think last night confirmed what we all know. We need a shakeup in defence, and our attackers have bags of potential under the right guidance.

Got to almost 80 minutes and Pogba and Lukaku killed the game flat imo. We were back to seeing what we're now used to. Slow transition, unable to pick out runs, giving the ball away needlessly.

So I switched over to ITV to keep the wife happy and catch a bit of Willoughby. Win-win.

Wazza

1.) 06 Dec 2018 09:22:09
I don't think Pogba had any effect on the game. If it was up to me, I would have added Mata to the mix of things, rather than put Pogba on the field.

Another thing that I noticed and I don't know if others felt it or not, was that prior to Lukaku coming on the pitch, our passing was crisp, mostly played to the feet of Martial or Rashford and even if we were going long, we were playing the ball where these two could run to.

As soon as Lukaku came on the field, the passing lessened and the long balls into channels became long hopefull balls pinged to Lukaku and he didn't do much about them.

Anyway, I think we showed some fight today and while Dalot was caught out position-wise, he had a pretty decent game, something he can build on. Bailly was good, one-off mistake after not playing for long is fine. Let's see what happens over the weekend!

On a side note: Although I was watching on the telly, the banter between the two sets of fans in the stadium was insane. Was really proud of the way our fans kept chanting and supporting the team and gave it back to the away fans.


2.) 06 Dec 2018 12:32:52
I enjoyed seeing Pogba chasing and pressing. Hope the penny drops soon that you need effort and ability.


3.) 06 Dec 2018 12:47:08
Pogba will probably go down as a worse purchase than Veron.


4.) 06 Dec 2018 14:32:04
Veron was actually OK. Won a league with him but just didn't fit into the perfect midfield pairing of Keane and Scholes. Kleberson or Djemba-Djemba would be more worthy candidates.


5.) 06 Dec 2018 16:34:15
Quality was awful at times, and some horrendous mistakes, but paradoxically that made for an exciting game. I agree with others - a front line of Rashford, Martial and Lingard will cause teams problems, with their pace and willingness to run at defender's. And with experience and age, comes more composure and footballing intelligence. I was gutted when Lingard was brought off, because his energy and the runs he makes off the ball, are vital to our attack at this time.


6.) 06 Dec 2018 20:22:56
I’m happy with the front 3, it’s the middle of the park where we are struggling. Imagine Ince, Robson, Keane, Scholes, Carrick in there.

Wazza

 

 

20 Aug 2017 00:33:17
The form of Jones leaves you wondering what might have been. Here's hoping he's turned a corner and gets more luck with injuries. He's defending on his feet now and looks a very solid centre back, as we all expected him to be when we signed him. Love to see him have a long run of playing every week, hopefully his body can get through that and he nails one of those CB positions.

Wazza

{Ed033's Note - Yes, defending on his hands wasn't working out.


1.) 20 Aug 2017 01:46:39
I thought he was brilliant last season when he played and it was so sad when he got injured again, I think if he can stay fit, and it is a big if, then he could be a star player for us this year.


2.) 20 Aug 2017 06:02:11
I thought he was very good last season .
People keep going on about our defence, saying we need a CB 2 FB but the truth is we haven't conceded many goals for a couple of seasons now .


3.) 20 Aug 2017 07:44:53
It's only injury that has hindered Jones, not his ability.


4.) 20 Aug 2017 10:31:02
Him and Smalling need to stay away from each other in training. The less clearances he does with his face the better too.


5.) 20 Aug 2017 11:57:46
Jred we don't need another CB if jones can stay fit. With him, Bailly, Lindelof and rojo we should be ok. The need for full back is more offensively than defensively. Darmian is ok defensively, but we need a LB willing to provide width and get up and down the pitch. We don't have that currently.


6.) 20 Aug 2017 12:41:33
Exactly Stand, I'd take an attacking fullback who can play either side. This would be a luxury but I'd also like another attacking forward. Someone like Lemar or Draxler. Although I doubt Draxler is available unless he forces his way out.


7.) 20 Aug 2017 12:43:29
I wouldn't rule out Perisic just yet. Inter leaking he'll sign a new deal soon sounds like they are saying to MU "pay up or miss out".


8.) 20 Aug 2017 16:02:56
Stand
What if the FB are doing what jose tells them?
8 goals in 2 games it's maybe working.


9.) 20 Aug 2017 21:13:34
I read somewhere that 13 consecutive games was the most he has managed at UTD - Certainly playing well at present.


 

 

14 Aug 2017 18:21:40
He hasn't been mentioned much and he certainly splits opinion on here. I think Phil Jones was absolutely brilliant. No nonsense, always talking, organising the defenders and making sure nothing gets through. If only he could stay fit and play like that every week.

Wazza

1.) 14 Aug 2017 18:51:00
I've always said I'd keep him over smalling every day of the week. Just needs to stay fit which is the big problem.


2.) 14 Aug 2017 19:05:50
Yeah wazza he played well on sunday. Can he stay fit. His form has been good when fit for past 18 nonths but the problem with making him 1st choice is that he can't stay fit long enough. He is one player that could do with an injury free season to see if he can nail down a spot. Same applies to shaw.


3.) 14 Aug 2017 19:39:36
Said all summer i think him and bailly could do well . Needs to stay fit tho.


4.) 14 Aug 2017 21:13:34
Im just going to throw it out there, i think he needs to stay fit.


5.) 15 Aug 2017 07:41:55
Jones just needs to stay fit.


6.) 15 Aug 2017 17:44:40
He definitely needs to stay fit and sort out those weird faces he pulls too. And stay fit obviously. No injuries would help the staying fit thing. It's always much easier to be fit when you aren't injured, not sure if there is a link though.

Same WRD. Been supporting United since my mam bought me my first fake kit off Wythenshawe market. Me and my brothers are red in a family full of blues. It doesn’t bare thinking about switching your colours. I’ve only ever known one person do it, he went from City to United in the 00’s. He was a bit of a todger so a tiny part of me is laughing at the timing of his switch.

DSG, the number of runs that our forwards make, particularly Rashford, is more than adequate. The problem is midfielders who can't pick a pass, and Pogba's key responsibility is to link defence and attack. You must be watching another game if you see anything but poor performance week in, week out from Pogba. He's not a kid any more, he's not potential any more, he's at an age where he should be at his peak, and if this is his peak then we will be lucky to find a buyer. He is the virus in the Club and we need shot of him ASAP.
