What Neville said Sunday, the defence can't keep a clean sheet, the midfield can't pass forward and the front 3 aren't clinical enough, says it all in a nutshell really.
Whose at fault and how do we change it, well a mixture of tactics and quality of the players obvs but we are stuck in a weird position, change manager but for who? Stick and we drift, does maiden moans thrown at it for next season change anything, I don't know what the answer is.

A top Centre back alongside Lindelof, a right sided player and a dynamic midfielder would obvs improve things on paper but would anything actually change under this regime and by regime I don't mean just Jose. What a mess we are in, in terms of where we are aiming to be, I think we will struggle to make top 4 if I'm honest.


1.) 12 Nov 2018 23:43:43
Lindelof isn’t the answer.


2.) 13 Nov 2018 06:59:04
Depends what the question is FZZ!


3.) 13 Nov 2018 08:04:19
We have the highest wage bill in the country and are below bournemouth and watford.

We have an oppurtunity to get rid of a lot of players whose contracts run out at the end of the season, yet i am reading reports that valencia and young are getting contract extensions.

Baffling to say the least.


4.) 13 Nov 2018 08:47:28
Mourinho likes big strong players.
Matic is static and needs to be dropped.
We have some very good technical players in Mata and Perriera. Herrara is like a little jack russel and gets stuck in.
Bailly needs to play at the back again.

More importantly, can anyone see DDg signing a new contract or Martial.
We could lose a lot of players next summer.

I'd sell

Jones, Valencia (34) in August, Rojo, Darmian, Fellaini, Matic, Sanchez, Smalling, pogba is he wants to go, sell him. Lukaku, poor technically, not a top forward.

The worrying thing is DDG Mata, Herrera and Martial could all leave for free next summer.

Any chance we will go in for Aaron Ramsey in January do any Ed's know?

{Ed002's Note - What I understand the situation to be is that Arsenal had reached a general agreement with Aaron Ramsey and his agent for a new contract but concerns were expressed about his "comportement" so a new deal is on hold but might yet be possible. Right now the two players that Unai Emery thinks about as possible central midfield replacements seem very unlikely options to the person I spoke with so it is unclear where this might end up. In terms of interest: Liverpool yes, and they would provide the best financial solution for the player. Juventus have at least four options in front of him so not right now. Milan yes they are interested - they have targets ahead of him but one is unaffordable at this time and attracting attention from elsewhere; the others are free agents in the summer but one is looking to head elsewhere and the other is Cesc Fabregas. I do not know of interest from Spain but, like Italy, wages would be an issue. Do not be surprised by interest coming from other English sides at some point.}

TFM to Fulham.


1.) 09 Aug 2018 18:54:00
Well, That's that then . Everton have come up on the rails and got Mina and got Gomes on loan just to rub it in.
I've a strong feeling Jose may pack his bags sooner than thought, The Glaziers and Peckerwood have shafted him big time .
But it's us the fan's who gave been shafted the deepest, Think Jose new months ago that the transfer pot was not what was promised.
I really hope he goes for his own sanity. I hope we finish with naff all again, Then hopefully Peckerwood will soon follow.
54 years a red, never doubted the team ever, never wished them bad luck and losses, But enough is enough we are supposed to be a footballing team, What we have become now is a laughing stock and a commercial whore.


2.) 09 Aug 2018 19:07:31
"Commercial whore"
Well put, I completely agree.


3.) 09 Aug 2018 19:24:15
Long time reader, first time poster. Eds do a great job with the site.

I might be reading too much into it, but are the board trying to manage Jose out?
We've spent huge sums since Fergie left and not always in the right place. Pogba, Martial and Shaw so far staying which, if we believe the media, is against Jose wishes. Perhaps hoping next manager will get the best out of them?
Style of play against traditions and current trends/ fan ideals.

{Ed002's Note - I have answered regarding this whole subject since the fans fouled all of the club's plans up and he joined.}


4.) 09 Aug 2018 19:44:25
I totally agree Jose's been well and truly shafted off the board so he should take the hint and walk so we can get someone in to get us playing the man utd way.
I would go for Brendan Rodgers I know he managed liverpool but he would be a breath of fresh air to our club I've no doubt he could get much more out of our squad than jose would.
I'm expecting a lot of backlash for this 😂😂😂 but I think. it would be a good shout.


5.) 09 Aug 2018 19:53:08
Brendan Rogers!

Do me a favour.


6.) 09 Aug 2018 20:34:57
Allegri wouldn't have been much better.


7.) 09 Aug 2018 20:38:16
Ed002, sorry to ask but where is the info on what you mentioned above regarding Jose and the clubs plans and the fans etc.

Is it searchable or can someone point me in the right direction please.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained pepeatedly since the day he signed - read the posts or search.}


8.) 09 Aug 2018 20:42:31
Fact is Allegri was lined up, we spoke, LVG got the boot and now we have jose who has won 3 trophies, improves our stats and rightfully recognised we needed the correct positions strengthening, maybe Jose is the right man and he’s the man we’ve got, he was rightfully frustrated at the transfer window, money has been spent but it was always going to take a lot of money and a big overhaul to undo the Moyes/ LVG eras. He may not play how we all want? He doesn’t how I want but I am fully behind him and the squad we have cz I think there is more to come from this current crop.


9.) 09 Aug 2018 20:58:58
Brendan rogers?

Put that whiskey down mate, its time for bed 🙂.


10.) 09 Aug 2018 21:31:37Guaranga not sharkhead Rodgers .

This is all such nonsense.


12.) 10 Aug 2018 02:48:37
I want rid of Mourinho probably more than any fan I know. I’m also sick of woodward seeming only interested in commercial deals and I think we need someone else dealing with transfers. But wishing bad on the club in the hope we get rid of them? I don’t think that’s something any true supporter would ever do.


13.) 10 Aug 2018 06:28:35
Good article this morning on the BBC website about why we didn't sign our targeted CB.
If the main defensive target was Varne and we couldn't get him, what is the point in signing anyone for the sake of signing someone, for me I would be happy to go with Bailly and Jones as the defensive partnership for the year.


14.) 10 Aug 2018 08:53:51
we have a good squad, Woodward has facilitated the captures of Sanchez, Di Maria, Pogba and others so we can hardly say he can't get big players in. Mourinhos attitude is terrible but he has won 3 trophies.

what baffles me is that we need defensive reinforcements and we let Tuanzebe and TFM leave on loan when they had a good pre season and we need them. we have defensive injuries and frailties and we should have trusted in them two!


15.) 10 Aug 2018 08:54:40
Let’s not right Man Utd of just yet let’s see how they get on against the foxes later and then we can see more clearly what we have to work on clearly we have a defensive problem but our overall team is strong let’s hope moaning Mourinho cheers up and gets behind his players like he did early Chelsea days.


16.) 10 Aug 2018 09:04:14
Hope this is a loan. We've got a good player on our hands for the right manager.

Any truth in Rojo to Wolves Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Jonathan Barnett has been told to find him another club and may well have a deal with Wolves. He certainly has spoken with two clubs in Italy who thought him overpriced.}

2.) 14 Dec 2018 08:10:39
Fzz, you sound like a spoiled child which is apt considering a lot of Utd fans were spoiled through success when they were a child, myself included.


 

 

01 Dec 2018 09:54:49
Hearing Jose talk about how united used to be able other top teams best players and now are unable to do so due to those teams being so powerful now, he used spurs as the example.
He's right of course, we would just go ahead and cherry pick the best from rival clubs and now clubs don't need to sell.
Have we have been comparing this post Fergie United to an incomparable time?


1.) 01 Dec 2018 13:05:22
Fergie did not spend 400mn in 3 seasons ever. Also which of the spurs players did we ever target that Mourinho could not sign because spurs wouldn't sell to us. This is another Don't blame me because I wasn't given a new shiny toy.


2.) 01 Dec 2018 13:09:07
In July 2017 we signed evertons best player.

In January 2018 we signed arsenals best player.

Tottenham are above us, have they cherry picked the best from rival clubs? no

Although Liverpool have bought southampton players at will you can hardly call them a rival club, they are above us.

The only thing that is incomparable to fergies time at united is the disparity between 6 clubs and the other 14, when he was in charge it used to be a top 4 and 16 other clubs. Even earlier it was just united and arsenal at times.

No denying the top end of the league is much more competitive and city have a freakish combination of top quality recruitment, coaching and resources. Fair enough mourinho can not compete with them.

But we are severely underperforming from last season let alone 'Fergie United', that has less to do with our ability to cherry pick from rival clubs and more to do with mourinhos negative attitude at the beginning of pre season and his inability to pick a consistent team because he's taken turns in falling out with the majority of players at the club.

It is a moyes level of excuse and they have been getting more frequent this season, it is getting embarrassing from mourinho to be honest.


3.) 01 Dec 2018 14:24:00
This 400 million in 3 seasons stick to beat Jose. That's 3 Coutinhos. In a world where Liverpool are spending 170 million in one window and pep has spent nearly 350 million on defenders alone, why is it a problem that he's spent money on a team that has been woefully handled over the last 10 years.

We should be spending more than that in terms of our revenue we bring in.


4.) 01 Dec 2018 15:06:55
Mumbles we wouldn't be in this position if money he spent was spent wisely. Everytime anyone brings in Mourinho's spending people point to Pep's, but how many of Guardiola's signings haven't worked out. Nolito, Bravo and Mendy that too is a stretch. On the other hand which of Mourinho's signings have worked, barring zlatan there isn't 1 player he has signed yet who anyone can say has turned out to be a fantastic signing.

I wouldn't give Mourinho a dime given his record not that he can really do anything with it given by their own admission even likes of perisic don't want to play for him.


5.) 02 Dec 2018 17:31:08
The point he was making is that for the most part clubs that used to be mainly dependent on selling their best players In order to balance the books. Now they don't have to do that anymore. This is due to huge incomes for all the epl clubs from tv sponsorship advertising etc.
Of course clubs will still sell their best players but for hugely inflated fees.
So in that respect he is correct the smaller clubs have become more powerful and a lot more wealthy.

If the tv money was distributed as evenly in spain or italy there would be less dominance by the usual suspects I those league's too.
Its not just a question of liverpool united or city knocking on the door and the likes of spurs caving in or Southampton or Leicester . Look how long it took and eventually how much it cost to sign vvd or city mahrez . Those clubs don't have to sell their best players to survive anymore.
This the point he was making. Its true.

Once Xmas is out of the way definitely going to try and get to one of their games.


 

 

04 Nov 2018 11:58:32
Watched the game yday and again we seem to be a 45 minute second half team, or only reacting once we fall behind. Have the players have gone into business for themselves, Jose's plan sees them devoid of ideas then once we go behind the players wake up and seemingly do what they think is best to win the game, same at Newcastle second half, same at Chelsea second half, same yday. If we could hook up a good first half display we would take some beating but it feels like we are playing within ourselves, shackled almost until we have to break free and rescue a game.


1.) 04 Nov 2018 12:47:42
I don't believe that incredibly lethargic first half hour had anything to do with Jose's planning. There's a big difference between starting out playing contained football, and what we saw in that display. It was entirely due to the players themselves.


2.) 04 Nov 2018 13:32:50
Agreed Shaw. It has been the story of most of our poor performances. Players not giving it there all.

I mean the difference in martial the last number of weeks. He has ran more, tracked back, been willing to put in a better shift and look what happens, we are and most importantly, he is seeing the fruit of his labour.

It's not rocket science, we just want to see the players work harder and their talent will do the rest!

Herrera epitomizes it. Evident when he came on yesterday.

Even Sanchez looked a lot more comfortable where he played yesterday. His running and willingness yesterday stretched the play, giving more options in the final third.

Big week now and we need to see 180 mins of it.


3.) 04 Nov 2018 12:24:31
Or they finally just do what they were told from the start. Can't always be joses fault. These players have to stand up and be counted.


4.) 04 Nov 2018 12:28:00
Ah i see when we lose its the coaches fault but when we win its down to the players having secret meetings to defy the coach and implement their own tactical masterplan. Do me a favour!


5.) 04 Nov 2018 14:12:49
But is martial playing for a contract here or elsewhere.


6.) 04 Nov 2018 14:39:30
Yes its all down to the players angel. All likes of martial needed was to work hard and track back in the majority games he didn't start or was left home entirely for no reason.

Nothing to do with mourinho basically letting sanchez, lukaku and matic have rubbish games after rubbish game while throwing everyone else under the bus and being completely unable to coach any player to actually improve.

We are the only top team that doesn't press, our go to plan most games fellaini is available is bring him on and lump it up to him. We have no attacking identity and mourinho clearly can't teach the team to defend while being unable to play overly defensive especially with ddg turning into a human for once and can't save everything our defence let's through.

All these problems will be solved if only the players ran more and showed some good ol pashun an komitment.

The lengths jose fans will go to blame everyone else in really amazing.


7.) 04 Nov 2018 14:55:08
Once we got going we had a clear attacking identity and we created at least 6 good chances.

Our problem is in defence where Smalling remains a liability, Bailly has lost the plot, and Matic seems to have gone past his sell by date. That in itself calls for a containment approach rather than a pressing game. We have too many people who cannot defend the open spaces effectively behind the press. Every time we went forward in the first half we opened ourselves up and gave away good chances to a team that actually works hard and has been coached to exploit our defensive frailties.

{Ed001's Note - Shaw is not a good defender either, he is too far away from his man most of the time, he does not anticipate things at all.}


8.) 04 Nov 2018 16:27:33
Shaw smalling was always a bad defender it's not exactly . Bailly has lost the plot because he has been constantly thrown under the bus and basically been used as a punching bag for our defensive frailities by Mourinho.

It isn't really surprising that a guy can't perform well when you constantly criticize him on TV and bench him for multiple games everytime he doesn't play well, I know one other player who Mourinho treated the same way. Right now he is the reason Mourinho isn't out of the job yet.

Matic keeps starting game after game while being rubbish, poor Pereira sadly can't get a look in because of 1 bad game. Matic's inability to move is a big reason why we are unable to defend, he is slow can't cover the defense and dawdles on ball only to give it away. We paid 40mn for 2 good months, and people wonder why Woodward doesn't trust mouriho's old player choices.

Also we defend 10 yards deeper than most big teams, is that down to the players as well. We don't press because no Mourinho team really ever played the pressing game, also just creating chances isn't exactly identity. That's individual ability. Take martial and pogba out of the equation and none of those chances actually materialize.


9.) 04 Nov 2018 17:08:29
Ken not saying it’s what I think but I theory I heard the other day. I’ve been a Jose defender and have always questioned the players attitudes aswell as the managers. If we could start implementing our coming from behind performances from the get go we’d be hard to stop.


10.) 04 Nov 2018 17:22:08
Look at martials stats CSM. There is no doubt that he is working harder these past number of weeks compared to recent times.

He has been incredibly frustrating up until recent weeks and was not deserving of a continued starting berth.

And yes, most of it is ultimately down to the players CSM. We have underperformed IMO since Fergie left except for maybe last season where City were just on another level. And the common denominator is the majority of players that have been at this club for the past 5 seasons or so. Players who have not given there all to the cause or just not been good enough.

Jose is a top class coach and I think, if he is given more time and a couple of more players in and out, we will see that. He's not the perfect fit but he is what he is.


11.) 04 Nov 2018 17:49:25
Csm i posted the other day i think its a bit of both. As it had to be.
I think the players are doing more of what he asks and expects and in yurn i think he has loosened the reigns a bit and shown a bit more tollerance.
If results continue to come you will probably see more give and take by both sides.
One thing for sure is that they are fighting to win games.


12.) 04 Nov 2018 17:58:09
I think the next 2 or 3 players we recruit are what will seal Jose's fate one way or another, the man is a skilled coach but really divides option on his methods and the way he carries himself . When he took the job we were way off and looked 4 or 5 players away from competing at the top, the problem is a dozen players later and that's still maybe the case . I don't really know who has final say on recruitments but I'd assume he's involved, I'm not sure in hindsight how many of the players we have purchased given a time machine people would pay that sort of money for and buy them again .
I hope the next 2 or 3 players recruited nail down a place in the side from the get go as lots have been players in and out the side recently Fred, Bailly, linlehoff, Sanchez, ect .
I've quite enjoyed watching utd in a lot of their games recently and they can be terrible then good in the same game . Martial has shown a skilled player playing well lifts spirits .


13.) 04 Nov 2018 18:26:24
Martial is back to the form he showed before he got dropped for Sanchez.
And then left on the bench while Sanchez had bad game after bad game.

Been given a run of games and he is back playing well . Fancy that.


14.) 04 Nov 2018 20:54:59
Jred even when he was getting a chance he wasn't putting in the shift. He wasn't deserving. Jose laid it out what he wanted. The penny seems to have finally dropped, working harder and reaping the rewards, fancy that?


15.) 04 Nov 2018 22:15:28
Its a bit of both to be fair. Martial is obviously working harder off the ball both defensively and offensively. Jose, every pundit and most supporters could see he was not doing enough.
Its a bit chicken and egg.
I think jose has picked him and trusted him and not jumped on every mistake or cul de sac he runs down. Martial in return has tajen on board and learnt how hard he needs to work to get the best out of his talent.
What came first the increased effort or more tollerence from the manager is anyone's guess but its working for all parties.
If martial sustains this form everyone is a winner.
A bit like shaw jose needs players to show desire and dedication to winning and doing whatever it takes to win. that's a tough challenge mentally for every player. In the past when his swuads buy into it the results have come and for the most part the football was better than we have seen here.
If he reunites this squad and they buy into his demands and he shows more tollerence and trust then we will be in better shape.


16.) 05 Nov 2018 06:22:15
Ken while agree with what you are saying. The quicker Mourinho leaves the better it is for everyone, what we are seeing now is too little too late.

He can't coach this team. We don't have characters he likes to work with and we can't fund his quick fix strategy given results it has produced.

Angel last time he started 5-6 games in a row, he scored 4 goals in last 3 games or something. Stop creating facts to suit your agenda.


17.) 05 Nov 2018 08:32:30
Jose has trusted martial and Shaw and we are seeing what good players they are .
That what a manager should do, a month ago everyone wanted rid of martial and Shaw now as always they have just moved on to different players.
The manager needs to get the best out of the players that's always been the issue under Jose.
Pep for example has his players playing to there potential Jose has never really managed that . And just buying new shinny toys hasn't been the answer because the issue has been getting the players playing to there potential.


18.) 05 Nov 2018 10:02:11
Shaw and martial after a period of time kicking their heals on the bench have decided to put in the required workrateand professionalism to deserve a game and we are seeinf what good players they can be when they do that. They are reaping the rewards for their change of attitude and commitment.
All you have to do is look at their stats. Ground covered, sprints, touches on the ball look at their heat maps.
Increased efforts = place in fhe team = better performances and out puts.
It should go without saying but it took them a while to realise.


19.) 05 Nov 2018 15:29:12
Martial stats for the 10 games before we bought Sanchez are slightly better than his last 10 games .
Shaw played well last season the odd time he was given a game, just got dropped time and again .


20.) 05 Nov 2018 16:41:18
Which datstats are better jred.
Goals scored distanced covered touches on the ball completed passes and minutes played are better in the last 5 games than in any of his games before xmas last year.
So which stats are you looking at?


21.) 05 Nov 2018 18:16:05
I think that only fits your narrative jred. When the truth is both players have undoubtedly put their heads down, worked harder and reaping rewards.

But no way, don't credit the coach for that.


 

 

01 Nov 2018 18:13:30
Something Pogba said today about you can't help but learn training with the likes of Buffon, Chielini, Pirlo and it made me think, Pogba is fairly young and still learning, who is he learning off in training at United, certainly not players of the ilk of Pirlo and Bonnuci, maybe it's not so surprising he's so inconsistent, we all expect him to be this ready made world class star, but being around better players make you better. Maybe we expected to much of him and maybe he's not developed as much as we want because of the level he's playing with? Just a thought, could be talking absolute nonsense of course, I often do.


1.) 01 Nov 2018 19:01:55
He should learning from the coaching staff. I mean Carrick is one of the best midfield players in the EPL over the last decade in terms of positioning, setting tempo, and general tactical reading of the game. The majority of Pogba’s issues are to do with poor decision making, Carrick should be ideal to help him with this, but there isn’t much evidence of him learning from his mistakes.


2.) 01 Nov 2018 19:40:26
Mata? Sanchez? Carrick? There are 3 examples of players in in their prime was on the same level if not a higher level than Pirlo, Bonucci and co.

Personally I think Pogba is an excuse machine and the sooner he’s moved on the better. Nothing will ever be his fault.

Besides what is he? 25? 26? He should be enjoying the best football of his career yet it’s always someone else holding him back.

First it was playing too deep, then it was mata taking up his position, then Sanchez, then Mou and now he doesn’t have stars to learn from? Give me a break.


3.) 01 Nov 2018 20:29:56
Moon, you criticise him as if he said he doesn't have that kind of player to learn from. It's only the opinion of WRD.

Mata and Sanchez on same level as pirlo? Do me a favour.


4.) 01 Nov 2018 21:07:55

Cheers for the replies, yes was just a thought that crossed my mind, I’ve not been pogbas biggest fan if I am honest and yes Carrick, Sanchez, DDG top drawer players or maybe it’s just the timing of him being here, us in this seemingly eternal state of rebuild, I guess we expect him to be our star when he was one of many at Juventus I think is what I was trying to say. Not even saying I’m right or J even agree with my own statement, just a thought.

My view is that Pogba sought to leave Juve because he wanted to be recognised as a world class player, earning world class wages. He can’t be blamed for the price we paid, but him and his agent think he is a star player.

At Juve he had players that could cover for his limitations, and a system in which he didn’t have a lot of responsibility. Here, he is at a club in which he is expected to be one of the players driving the team, and he doesn’t have a world class defence covering for his mistakes. But he is ultimately responsible, it’s not down to a lack of world class players that causes Pogba to make mistakes, it’s poor decision making, poor concentration, and an unwillingness to develop his game. Playing alongside Pirlo doesn’t stop him blasting the ball over the bar from 30 yards, playing a ridiculous pass in his own half, or losing the player he’s marking. That’s all down to Paul.

Funny that, If you surf the archives in the days before sin ups you’d have seen me call for Pirlo at United who many called over the hill. Now he’s the GOAT is he?

Mata in his prime at Chelsea was arguably the best 10 in Europe. Sanchez has carried udinese and Arsenal. Carrick carrick doesn’t need an overview.

To say Mata or Sanchez aren’t on Pirlos level is laughable.

Either way pogba has made me fall out of love with United and football. FOR ME. Signing pog was a bigger mistake than appointing Moyes and you’ll all soon see why in years to come.

Moon who called him the goat?
More crazy talk.
He us one of the best midfielders of his generation was my assessment so how does that xhange to goat within 2 posts.
Dont engage in hyberbole or gross exaggeration and mis quotes.
Makes you look churlish and childish.

He's 25, he's not a kid any more. This is the kind of excuse an employee would come up with when they aren't performing well. Pogba is responsible for Pogba.

If pogba is our scapegoat, Pirlo would get torn apart by the fans in our team. Possibly the laziest player I've seen.

Poch has all the attributes for me, a no brainer if we require a new gaffer.

He has not made wales worse at all. He is trying to change the team around by playing youngsters alongside the older guard who he will phase out over time. Wales have played some good stuff under Giggs and as a Welshman and fan I’m happy to see us try to play the way we do and have a lot of talented youngsters getting games and gelling, only bodes well for the future. At least Giggs knows what it means to be a United player and thr character needed and how to play the United way. Remember the talent pool is far more limited for wales than England, at a club like United he’d have financial backing. I’m not saying we should go ahead and bring him in but I don’t see us being any worse off place wise, in fact as some have said they’d rather see us attack and lose then at least you’d get attack, it’s not always about the big name, LVG, Jose haven’t worked out (least not yet in Jose’s case) but I’d hate to see a legend get panned by our fans anyway.

WWE are rethinking their deals with Saudi and pulling out of a show to the tune of $45m, I can’t see why United would do business with them at this time after recent events.

Don’t see where DDG goes, Real are ok, Barcelona too, maybe Bayern or PSG but less competitive leagues, anywhere else even if we aren’t on top atm is a backward step.

Pogba was surrounded by top quality players with France, I’ve said all along he had maybe a decent half in the World Cup, can’t wait to see the back of him. I said at the time I didn’t want him and he’s done zilch to change my mind. Harsh words but unfortunately it’s time to cut our losses.
