Well done to Marcus Rashford for making the provisional England squad.

Hopefully he gets some experience from this and comes back as a better player.


1.) 15 May 2016 09:25:24

They should have made the change in December and I firmly believe if they had we would now be comfortably in the top four. Once they didn't do that they were unlikely to say anything whilst there is something to play for. When SAF announced his retirement the first time it had an adverse effect and whilst there is denial over it there has been an impact at City from the Pep news. For me it needed leadership and decisiveness in December, we didn't get it, so have appeared as a rudderless ship since then.

The silence from the club probably tells us more. If they keep LVG on it will damage the club's playing prowess and image and I can't imagine the sponsors will be too happy, so for me I think there will be a change after the cup final. My worry is the choice of replacement, I hope they make a logical football decision not an emotional one. Three years and counting, with the present set up we have no chance of winning the league in the next 2 seasons and suddenly we will be building a mentality like we had for 26 years. Therefore right now we need a proven winner who could win the league. Like him or not when a manager of Mourinho's quality is available it would be utter madness to ignore him.

2.) 16 May 2016 13:07:29
I agree Redman. It is time for a change. Many don't approve of mou. I can understand that. However i don't see any better alternatives in terms of experience and with a better track record of winning.
He is the right man at the right time imo.
If we are stuck with Rooney he is the only man that I think could get another burst from him.
I'm hoping He will be appointed if not then i hope have a better plan than letting lvg see our his contracy.

3.) 16 May 2016 14:01:59
Fully agree. I think Mourhino is ideal for now as we find ourselves. Will definitely turn the team around and play to he strengths of the squad rather than trying to squeeze them into a preconceived tactical corset. I believe he will strengthen the squad prudently and not necessarily with Marquee signings.
Beyond two years, I take on board worries voiced elsewhere, and to a degree share them. Jose seems to be really wanting this job, and if successful, I think he will do everything in his power to keep it.
We also need to remember That SAF was no Angel when it came to the media.

4.) 16 May 2016 18:23:52
In my opinion it has to be mourinho . But I also get the feeling that Woodward is going to shaft us up the ring. Himself and van gaal seem to have a solid relationship. And which club these days do what the fans demand, I hope palace turn us over in the FA cup and I say that because, Than hopefully van gaal won't have a leg to stand on and he has to go.
Mour for me.

5.) 16 May 2016 20:16:17
Just a bit concerning that mourinho, s track record with young players, I admit this boring way ov playing can't carry on but wonder if a giggss scholes, g Neville partnership could work to get excitment back at our club, as good as mourinho is he never really plays attacking football.

6.) 16 May 2016 20:31:39
Newcastle played very attacking football this season especially under mclaren, gung ho style. That what you want then red locks?

7.) 16 May 2016 20:42:35
Has it done Leicester any harm either? That's how we use to play under fergie, a top cb like varane, a top right sided winger- forward and a box to box midfielder with a fresh approach is what I would like riddlet026 and to keep the young lads in the team.

8.) 16 May 2016 20:54:36
So did Leicester? And we used to as well, isn't that what you would like to see again riddlet026.

9.) 17 May 2016 08:43:31
Firstly, in relation to Mourinho and his track record with young players, do you think LVG would have picked the youngsters he has this season if we hadn't had injuries? No, he wouldn't have. Rashford has made a great impact on the first team yet LVG still comes out and says he isn't ready for the first team? Deluded.

As for fans not wanting to win the FA cup, that is just unbelievable. I have never understood this mentality and never will.

Finally, SAF was no angel, boycotting the BBC after the doc about his son and don't forget the trouble with Magnier over the horse spunk that led to the Glazers taking over the club. We need to get back to winning ways, playing great football. Look at the football and goals scored during Mourinho's first season in charge of Chelsea, great attacking football. Don't get me wrong, I am no fan of him courting our club in the way it has been portrayed, but we need a strong reaction now. Pep is going to City and I expect a resurgence there, they have finished ahead of us for the past three seasons, we cannot allow a fourth. Liverpool will be stronger next season under Klopp and Tottenham will be strong.

My first choice to replace LVG would be Pochettino but it looks like that is impossible, so the best available man is Mourinho.

10.) 17 May 2016 09:17:06
Yea, let's all hope we don't win the FA cup, and then hope we don't win anything next year as well, and the year after, when does it stop? Winning the FA cup is a huge achievement and we haven't managed it since 2004, whatever you think of the manager hoping the club doesn't win the cup makes me a little embarrassed of some of our fans.

11.) 17 May 2016 18:47:05
It gets more ridiculous every time I read it gds.
Why would any supporter want us to lose a cup final there is No rationale to justify it.



02 Sep 2014 01:13:39
So Danny Welbeck has left MUFC for Arsenal. What a sad sight seeing one of own home-grown players who had so much potential but never fulfilled it to our requirements.

I wish Danny the best of luck in London and hope he does well in the rest of his career. And I will never forget that Madrid goal he scored!

We have an alright replacement for him though in someone named Falcao? Never heard of him but all I know is he was in the world 11 or something last season? Seems like an alright prospect for us.


1.) I'm also sad he has gone but it's good to see new faces come in. Hopefully we will start winning some games after all of the money that has been spent.

2.) We need time to click, our starting 11 will be tricky. SAF had nothing but time and worked his system the way he wanted, anyone who was coming in to do anything either than what SAF did was going to have a roughy time. What LVG has done is great but he still needs time, new system, new personal, new style. He needs at least this season to get going and then we can be back on top 2015-2016

3.) Wellbeck's move is getting a lot of press/Twitter coverage because it was a surprise signing by Arsenal. His time at OT was up when Van Gaal came because the system demand clinical finishers. We need CL football. Would you rely on Danny to get you CL football? As much as I like him, I wouldn't.

4.) Always nice to see someone come through the ranks at united, but unfortunately his time was up a couple of seasons ago. never really made the grade, not really sure what his best position is.
£16m is great business for us. arsenal taking a back-up player from us, can't see that really haunting us what so ever

5.) Really shortsighted.

We now have 3 world-class strikers, 2 with knee problems and all at the age where they aren't really going to improve, with only a year or two before they start to decline.

Meanwhile we have sold the promising young striker who's going to be growing into his best just in time for the decline of the older 3.

Welbeck just needs some time up front instead of being stuck out on the wing. This is going to be just like Sturridge, and we'll be regretting this before long.



01 Sep 2014 11:48:40
Richards is off to Fiorentina? Does that mean Cuadrado could be on his way out?

Ed002 is there any update on Cuadrado?


{Ed002's Note - Neither Barcelona nor Chelsea were interested in an auction - he will have to stay.}



23 Jan 2014 20:40:26
Ed002, were you aware of the Mata interest or did it surprise you? I know he still hasn't signed but the way it's going he should be a United player by the end of tomorrow.


{Ed002's Note - There was no secret that clubs were interested and no secret that he did not want a move to Paris. The alternative was Atletico Madrid but they would not have paid what MU will be paying. The bid was acceptable to Chelsea and he wants the move, so Chelsea would not stand in his way.}

1.) His name has not come upmuch on here

2.) None of us expected Chelsea to sell to us. There were strong links in the summer for a swap deal. but I doubt many expected this. I just hope it goes through

3.) Since the start of the window I've been suggesting that Mata coming to us on loan wouldn't be too crazy. I must admit that even I thought a permanent move was beyond all likelihood though.

I'd love to see Ronaldo return but it's just too unlikely for me. The price and wages he would require just seem too much and this stage of his career.

Based on what the Ed's and the media have said I think a realistic end to the summer would be this:

Morata or Belotti to definitely come, looks like Morata is first choice. Either will improve us a lot, just hope we don't overspend on them.

Fabinho or Matic. I personally would like Fabinho because he can cover RB as well as CDM but I have a feeling we could see Matic return to a Mourinho sqaud, he was one of the best midfielders in the prem when they won the title under Jose and it looks like he's being pushed out slightly by Chelsea.

Semedo, Ed mentioned this guy a while back and now the media have jumped onto it (do they watch the sharkopod too? ) . I haven't seen much of him but it sounds like he will be great to have alongside Toni going into the next season.

Finally Perisic (If the price is right) . I've rated Perisic whenever I've seen him play for country but I wouldn't price him at the rumoured 50m. However if the club value him at that price then so be it, he's a hard working player who I think could provide the right workrate to allow the likes of Rashford, Miki and Martial to perform better.

I have faith Mourinho has the right plan to take us forward this season.


1.) 20 Jun 2017 07:57:06
Hey Weggy, I like all that but my worry is creativity, who delivers the magic? I know we have Pogba and Miki but I do think we have been lacking a spark.

2.) 20 Jun 2017 08:38:25
agree with all that weggy although I do like Amuydingdong from Dortmund as I've seen him regularly and like him a lot - I also worry where is that spark, the magician we need. Mata hasn't quite done it for me . Miki might step up alongside Pogba, but we haven't got that Hazard, Willian, sanchez player (yet anyway) who can really make things happen when on form that defenders are wary of.

3.) 20 Jun 2017 09:20:13
100 percent agree AJH every top team has at least one player who is capable of winning a match with sheer brilliance. In a way Zlatan was partly that guy for us last year but as good as some of our current players undoubtedly are they are not contenders for World player of the year. That is the level to which we should aspire.

4.) 20 Jun 2017 09:28:27
AJH, I think that player was meant to be Griezmann but as you already know that transfer seems more unlikely than Ronaldo right now.

Perhaps our interest in James is legit and we may see him come in?

I think we should give Miki the CAM spot and see what he has to offer, he has always taken time to get rolling at previous clubs so I expect a better turnout from him this season.

5.) 20 Jun 2017 09:51:26
That player has also got to be given the freedom and trust to express himself .
Miki and pogba in particular have the talent.

6.) 20 Jun 2017 11:40:35
I think it is Jose's style not to have that x factor in the team if a worker will suffice. Jose's teams have never been flash. I think if that was Jose's prerogative Miki would have been the player he was at Dortmund last season.

7.) 20 Jun 2017 13:36:43
I think our issue last year wasn't the lack of magic, it was being clinical in front of goal, what we need is someone who can finish off the chances.

8.) 20 Jun 2017 13:47:58
If I remember correctly, Inter have to recoup some money t be in compliance with FFP. Like Ed002 says, I do not like to get into money, however I believe it is around 30 million. If that is the case, UTD can sit around and stand firm on whatever price they wish to pay, as I believe Inter will budge on their end.



16 Jun 2017 14:39:02
Ed002 are you aware of any potential move for Ronaldo?

Rumours popping up about him wanting to leave Spain, unsure if it's all BS like usual.


{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with MU.}

1.) 16 Jun 2017 19:28:23
Would united be interested ed if he did decide to call time on Spain?

{Ed002's Note - No doubt they would be on "red alert".}

2.) 16 Jun 2017 19:28:49
It is true he wants to leave then?

{Ed002's Note - You are on the wrong page.}

3.) 16 Jun 2017 20:42:15
I asked about this on euro pages lads. 001's response was it's far too early to tell. I'm sure all will be revealed in due course. Will probably all be resolved and he will remain.

4.) 16 Jun 2017 20:46:42
Apologies I've been a bit unclear there. 001 only said it's too early to tell. The rest was my own opinion.

5.) 17 Jun 2017 00:25:01
Have to be aware that Ronaldo and Mourinho had a rocky relationship at Madrid towards the end, very unsure if Ronaldo would come under Mourinho.



19 May 2017 17:30:38
Angel Gomes included in the squad training today. Mourinho says he will take part in Sunday's game vs Palace.

What an achievement for 16 year old lad who's been at the club for 8 years already. I hope he gets a chance and shows off what he is capable of. Could be a very important player for us in a few years time.


1.) 19 May 2017 17:41:07
Delighted at this news.

2.) 19 May 2017 19:50:53
Great news for him and the other lads. A dream come true. Big opportunity to play on the biggest stage.
The only hope I have for them all is that it gives them the taste for more and that they dedicate themselves everyday in training and work on their game in order to get another chance.

3.) 19 May 2017 22:25:54
Very surprised, the lads a talent but he looks like school boy.

4.) 19 May 2017 23:43:08
The dawn of a new era 😆😆.

5.) 19 May 2017 23:46:13

That's because he pretty much is, great for him though to see what level is required, he's got a lot of ability but is 2 or 3 years away from being good enough, I can't wait for Sunday though to see some of these kids, it will tell us a lot despite it being a nothing game.

6.) 20 May 2017 00:26:23
He's arguably the best player we have outside our first team squad, and he's 16. He's that good.

7.) 20 May 2017 08:34:43
Like i said he is a talent, but he really is physically just a kid.

8.) 20 May 2017 16:41:02
Only found out today he's Nani's cousin.



12 May 2017 07:58:10
So the final is in 12 days from now and we have 3 league games before it. My question is, do we field out a strong 11 in the league and try to push up the table but risk injuries? or do we bring the under 21s into the side and rest and protect our main men? (Pogba, Rashford, Valencia and Miki) .

I'd like to see us protect out best players and let's some of the youth play, who knows? They might out-perform our current squad.


1.) 12 May 2017 08:15:38
All in for europa.

2.) 12 May 2017 08:54:17
I say we absolutely rest every starter against Crystal Palace and not even have them in the 18 and let Nicky Butt travel and take Bailly with him.
Depending on how the results with Liverpool and arsenal go, if both of then drop points.
I feel we should put our best XI and try to win this tie.
Only not play those who are extremely tired.
I would start Rooney in all 3 of the games as he generally takes game time to get back his fitness.
Give Joel Pereira a game, and give 3 games to Tuanzebe.
I feel if the players get 90 more mins in the next 3 games it would be great as it keeps them match fit and not get overly played.

3.) 12 May 2017 11:03:42
I hope pogba, rashford, mkhi, valencia, hererra play no further part in the league, keep them fresh and ready for europa.



09 Dec 2016 11:07:22
Sanchez: 14 goals in 25 apps
Zlatan: 13 goals in 22 apps
Costa: 11 goals in 17 apps
Aguero: 13 goals in 19 apps

Saw this posted on social media today and it got me thinking, if Zlatan didn't go through that dry patch last month how different would things be right now?

Maybe all we need right now is a bit of luck and things could easily look much better.

I'm looking forward to Sunday, time to put out a good performance against a good side for once.


1.) 09 Dec 2016 12:15:02
Everybody was writing him off during that dry patch saying we made a mistake, 7 in 6 games since then suggests he might get around 30 goals this season.

2.) 09 Dec 2016 12:20:51
A failure.

3.) 09 Dec 2016 12:50:00

4.) 09 Dec 2016 13:19:35
Actually weggy stats also show that zlatan has the worst shots to goal ratio among all you have listed above, so one can say we have to create a lot more chances to score same amount of goals with zlatan in the team than if we had any of the above players. While he seems to be getting back in rhythm, one shouldn't forget him missing sitters in those drawn or lost games is one of the big reasons why we are where we are in the league.

5.) 09 Dec 2016 14:37:09
Plus he's older than all the other players in that list and has only just joined the hardest/ best league in the world with new team mate that he's never played with before unlike the others. Just saying.

6.) 09 Dec 2016 16:13:51
Goals tell one side of the story. Just imagine if he had actually been half as good as he usually is with the ball, we would be banging them in for fun. He may have scored well, but his overall performance has been way below his typical standards.

I'm looking forward to when he finds form, goal blitz!

7.) 09 Dec 2016 18:55:31
His stats look even better when you compare him to traffic bollards, fire hydrants, and lamp posts, which have about the same level of movement as Ibra.

8.) 09 Dec 2016 20:10:25
Zlatan has always played like that. Even when he drops back when playing two up top he's always been slow to release the ball. I am perfectly alright with his performance for us and was disappointed to see him start on Thursday. He should have been left back home, together with Pogba because statistically those two have been our most influential players.

9.) 09 Dec 2016 21:49:39
Paddy power have him 10/ 1 to break Charltons record before rooney😂.

10.) 10 Dec 2016 23:26:56
Reminds me of Sparky. Struggles with the simple bread an butter finishes but makes the hard look simples.

With you here MAZE.

If we're going to over pay for a striker we might as well go for one we know is capable of doing it in the PL.

Signing Lukaku for 80m makes more sense than signing Morata for 80m.

If Madrid get a different keeper I could see De Gea staying with us for many years. there's no other club out there which could prize him away. we need to keep hold of him at all costs.

The problem is we would be buying a player they don't particularly want and they would use the money to buy one the best young strikers in the world in Mbappe.

I'd rather pay an extra 30m and go for Mbappe instead.

Bailly, Lindelof, Rojo, Keane, Tuanzebe and perhaps Blind seem to be our options for next season then.

How can they seriously ask for that much for someone who sits on their bench?!

I agree Maze. I don't think we need 6+ new players like some say. We need a midfielder to allow Pogba to push higher up, a Striker to make up the loss of Zlatan/ Rooney and a Winger to provide more competition and quality to an already talented bunch.

Perhaps a fullback if Shaw leaves like you say.
