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 .

11.) 09 Aug 2018 22:19:55
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.



28 Jul 2018 09:43:50
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.}

1.) 28 Jul 2018 11:07:20
Interesting, thank you Ed.

2.) 28 Jul 2018 17:49:23
What's the asking price?

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant.}



12 Jun 2018 22:42:06
Griezmann says future is decided and Lamar signs for Atletico.

1.) 12 Jun 2018 23:11:16
Probably Barcelona bound or maybe City.

2.) 12 Jun 2018 23:35:10
What an attention seeking plank he is.

3.) 13 Jun 2018 00:02:22
Decent player though.

4.) 13 Jun 2018 00:58:25
Such a gulf between his talent and his behavior.

5.) 13 Jun 2018 01:31:11
I think he will stay at Athletico.

6.) 13 Jun 2018 08:50:49
I've got a feeling lemar coming Into Athletico is there way of showing him they can compete. Stay and be a legend and the top dog here.
Just my thoughts.

7.) 13 Jun 2018 10:02:15
Great player but he is such a diva. But still. I would love him at the club.

8.) 13 Jun 2018 12:42:12
Over rated. Weak mentally. Not a signing i'd be happy with.

9.) 13 Jun 2018 14:32:22
Mort Could not agree and less. He showed incredible loyalty to Athletico, He could have left before but chose to stay rather than leave them short handed after there transfer ban. He has traits that I am not fond of, his social media usage etc however this seems to be a common thing in the game these days. He's a game winner with ambition and ability by the bucket full. He'd be an incredible signing. Issue I have is would it stifle the development of our young superstars.

10.) 13 Jun 2018 16:33:16
If he had ambition he would have left when he'd indicated he was prepared to. Going off what a few people have said he's flipped and flopped between ourselves, Barcelona and atleti several times. Might be talented but I question his mentality.

11.) 13 Jun 2018 16:39:54
Genuinely believe he would be an atrocious purchase for United. Last thing we need is another egotistical social media loving soundbite.

Rant over.

12.) 13 Jun 2018 21:53:59
I posted about this yesterday. It all seems a bit self indulgent to me. Called a press conference to say he’s decided his future but won’t say where. Piss off mate, come back when you’ve got done real news.



08 Jun 2018 21:00:24
Hi Ed, any news on the future of Sergio Romero?

{Ed001's Note - not at the moment, I would think the World Cup will give him a chance to entice some offers. Though, of course, he might want to wait and see what happens with De Gea….}

1.) 08 Jun 2018 22:19:26
Let me stop you right there, Ed001 :)

2.) 09 Jun 2018 10:02:23
I was hoping they’d sign 👕🎀⚖️🇫🇷☝️✌️.

3.) 10 Jun 2018 16:24:39
Why would the World Cup entice offers for Romero? He is out injured and won't be going.

{Ed001's Note - I never said while he was there did I? The players that are there will mostly be too busy with their country while he has time to sort out his future and drop his name into the mix as a lot of clubs are looking for keepers right now.}



31 May 2018 14:20:46
Jose apparently went and watched Arnoutovic for Austria.

1.) 31 May 2018 15:23:54
He's working for a Russian broadcaster for the world cup. I'd say he was there doing his homework on the Russian national side.

2.) 31 May 2018 16:03:15
He went and watched the Austria game, surely if he wanted to see what Arnautovic is like he would have just watched him all season in the Prem. If a story sounds silly it probably is, do you honestly think we will pay over £50m for him?

3.) 31 May 2018 16:05:14
Or watching Alaba.

4.) 31 May 2018 16:44:56
Rumour has it he was also watching Golovin and another Russian player.

5.) 31 May 2018 17:25:44
£50m is like loose change these days so yes I can see £5 bracket being where Arnie is in.

6.) 31 May 2018 22:24:56
Doubt he’d have to scout him. He knows him from inter and they didn’t get on.

7.) 01 Jun 2018 10:23:09

There is no rumour, he was watching 22 players at any one time, surprisingly I have only seen us linked with 2 of them so far, this journalism thing seems too easy.

8.) 01 Jun 2018 22:14:11
I hope not WRD. Surely he wouldn't have gone to watch him play for Austria. Can see him every week in prem and also managed him at inter. I'd say he knows all that he needs.

Godin rumours lol I would give my left nut.

1.) 09 Aug 2018 11:21:59
32 so definitely no spring chicken but would add great experience to the ranks. Talk of a loan deal.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 11:25:09
Great for two seasons. Would really help the likes of Bailly and Lindi develop. One of the best defenders in the game today.

3.) 09 Aug 2018 11:29:09
Great player, definitely a massive bonus if we bring him in, genuine leader. But I'd give my left nut for a left back, right nut for a right back and my anaconda for a right winger.

4.) 09 Aug 2018 11:36:32
Now there is a genuine fan ladies and gentleman. Well done Beast. that's called giving your everything for the club you love. :P.

5.) 09 Aug 2018 11:43:12
Play one in each position Beast?

6.) 09 Aug 2018 11:59:15
My favourite centre half for years. I'd give your right nut as well, Welsh.

7.) 09 Aug 2018 12:13:32
Sorry Beast had to give that a thumbs down in case I started to picture it.

but. (dramatic pause) definitely need to bolster the positions you mentioned lb/ rb/ rw and a cb over the next few windows. It doesn't look like any of that will happen in this.

8.) 09 Aug 2018 12:24:14
It was rejected immediately apparently.



09 Aug 2018 09:04:21
Alright pals, is Tony's prediction comp anywhere on here or have I just not searched far enough? Thanks Tony again for doing it btw, Sterling Work.

1.) 09 Aug 2018 09:22:40
Sent it mate, just waiting for it to appear.



06 Aug 2018 21:26:34
Well the next few days will tell the story regarding the transfer window, I for one am glad it's shut before kick off. For me, as most, Toby coming in would be a massive improvement on centre back, if no other comings or goings then we've a strong squad still, if Pogba goes we must replace him, SMS would be my pick.
Pre season, not the best prep, half the squad missing and so disjointed performances, I feel pre season is all about fitness and I take little notice of results here. Fred has been impressive and Bailly has looked strong as has Sanchez who will be like a new signing imo.
Coming season, I expect city and scouse to fight it out but if United have a similar points tally to last then we will be challenging too, I don't expect fast paced, attacking football, wish we did play that way but we will be there or there abouts.
On Jose, he's made noises about his happiness with the World Cup and transfers, as someone said earlier he's moaning about what we are too so on the same page somewhat, it's a big season for him mind, many expect a meltdown or him not to stay beyond 3 seasons, by staying on wether he wins or not will be a breakthrough for Jose, he will want to see the team progress tho and if he doesn't he could we be off anyway.
So come on the lads versus Leicester Friday and I am so glad the season is back.

1.) 07 Aug 2018 01:38:40
Good post WRD.



02 Aug 2018 21:02:30
Sly reporting what Ed 002 told us moons ago, Toby, Rose and Dembele up for sale.



29 Jul 2018 09:51:51
I said this a few days ago and I'm going to say it again, I've seen a few similar posts and it makes for sad and worrying times.
Manchester United have no identity, no direction seemingly, a style of play that is the opposite to our history ever since Fergie left, recruitment of managers has been wrong since Fergie, we've gone from buying the right player at the right time to scatter gun approach desperately hoping it'll win us a title.
I have to admire City, they knew and planned for years the arrival of Pep, built everything around a style and identity, we need to do similar.

We have Valencia and Dalot, Jones, Bailly, Lindelof, new signing, Shaw and Young, enough to cover any formation without Darmian. Presuming Smalling and Rojo leave that is aswell.

Willian will provide much needed balance on the right side. Mata, Lingard aren’t right wingers, Sanchez obvs isn’t going to play over there so I’d say it improves us as a team.

Tbh I don’t see what Pogba brings to the team, ok he’s scored 2 pens but his impact is very minimal to the point Herrera or McTominay have a greater influence for me. I mean at least them to don’t lose the ball and then fall over flapping there arms expecting a free kick because they was not good enough to keep the ball. Raiola should take his client and himself elsewhere as this club has become unrecognisable from the one we have always been.
I said the other day I felt sorry for Jose and I do, undermined by his players and seemingly by Ed Woodward, and the media love it btw, unfortunately in a situation like this the manager does not win and for the record as poor as our style is under Jose he does not deserve this from his players and CEO or the media saying ‘see he lost the plot again’ stories that no doubt will be the headlines.
Shame it has come to this but the writing seems on the wall and the players need to take a lot of the responsibility for this but going forward we need our identity back and I’m not so sure I trust Woodward with that job again.

I actually think Scholes is usually bang on in his assessments of us. He’s critical cz he knows how it was and should be at United. Scholes expects the best, so did his team mates, that’s why those teams was winners, maybe we should all take more notice of our ex legends.

Itsh the piloshophy Ed, enjoy a red wine and a mince pie while the fence are singing Lois Van Gaal army, Lois Van Gaal army,

{Ed0333's Note - I really can’t see LVG returning to United in any capacity he’s still incredibly bitter in the way he was sacked. Maybe he’d come back as an arsonist?
