Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta has insisted the Italian champions have had no contact with Manchester United over midfielder Paul Pogba.

On Friday, Marotta poured further cold water on the speculation in an appearance on Italian television, simply telling
Sportitalia that there has been "no contact" with other clubs.

1.) 16 Jul 2016 06:37:13
The old adage applies. Never believe anything until it is officially d
I am hopeful.

2.) 16 Jul 2016 08:38:06
Dortmund did the same with Mkhitaryan.

3.) 16 Jul 2016 09:22:45
Have we put a bid in to the player's club? The more credible sources (relatively speaking) seem to suggest we haven't as yet; more that we've only held talks with his agent around terms for the player. And if we haven't put in a bid, and he's supposedly our top target, then why not?!

4.) 16 Jul 2016 12:51:19
Juve are negotiating other deals for incoming players. Why would they confirm that they could be getting £100m+. Only increases asking price for players they're interested in. Reality is the market knows. But no pointing making it easier.



17 Jun 2016 10:44:11
Well Mino Raiola has popped up again saying they are working hard to convince Dortmund to let Mikhitarian leave for United.
I like the guy (Mikhitarian of course! ), but Dortmund are downright SOBs when it comes to transfers and usually end up getting their way - just like Tottenham.

Eds "do you think we can pull this off? "

{Ed004's Note - I would like to think so. This seems to be a case of Dortmund trying to save face. They'll want their fans to think they tried very hard to keep the player and that (if he moves) the offer they received was too much to turn down for a player who wants to leave.}

1.) 17 Jun 2016 11:14:42
Thanks Ed. I do think Mikhitarian will be a good acquisition but my Chelsea-supporting cousin thinks I'm under rating the player. He's hoping the deal doesn't materialise, how do you rate the player?

{Ed004's Note - Haven't really seen enough of him but his stats where extremely impressive from last season}

2.) 17 Jun 2016 11:18:36
Thanks Ed004👍.

3.) 17 Jun 2016 11:26:03
Is t Mkhitaryan in his final year of contract there is no way they will let's other player leave on a free transfer next season I think they will sell him.

4.) 17 Jun 2016 11:52:54
They did that with Lewandowski.

5.) 17 Jun 2016 15:08:46
I hope we get Mkhitaryan. Right footed option from the right but very good at it - a rare breed. He scores and lays on so many chances which Zlatan et al should make the most of.

6.) 17 Jun 2016 18:45:53
Mkhitaryan was obviously the best player this season in the bundesliga. He is pure class and will even get better.
Just to inform you.

7.) 17 Jun 2016 19:05:04
One word, Kagawa.

8.) 17 Jun 2016 20:51:33
Different type of player.

9.) 17 Jun 2016 17:18:18
just a weird club who keep losing players on a free or it always seems like no one wants to stay or extend. No other club is ever in the news as much as they are with key players not wanting to say, extend etc.

10.) 17 Jun 2016 22:02:05
But that's probably more to do with Bayern winning every year X, and they know any top players they get once they start performing eventually they're going to go and bayern take all their very best.

Must make it hard to stay motivated knowing that's going to happen especially if you feel you have the talent to be winning things and clubs that are going to be challenging for titles come in and offer you more money.

11.) 18 Jun 2016 08:05:58

To a degree yes, but if they had retained what they had, they can give Bayern a run for their money. supposedly great stadium and 80k fans every game, A lot of teams in many other leagues who don't win the league but are competitive seem to have more loyalty from their players. Something strange at Dortmund.

12.) 18 Jun 2016 13:41:08
Was thinking this the other day gcu it seems they never have renewal.

Welcome back Fulham! I guess Terry doesn't have to worry about facing Chelsea anymore.

1.) 26 May 2018 19:06:00
Its a shame villa didn't come up, we have a great record at villa park. Even moyes and lvg managed to win there.

2.) 26 May 2018 19:30:48
I’m glad, hate the play offs, Fulham was 3rd so deserve to be the 3rd team up plus Villa need a spell out, they stink.

3.) 26 May 2018 19:33:32
Used to live in London and enjoyed a match at Fulham now and again. Great ground. Pleased they’re back. Villa too negative under Brucie but he’s done well to get them back and being competitive.



14 Oct 2017 14:43:47
This is not a knee-jerk reaction. But, for all Mourinho's good side, this is what I hate the most about him.

Imagine playing the worst defence in top teams, a team that conceded 12 goals in its last 7 games and you set up so negatively, isolate your striker, use Ashley Young as a RW while you had Mata and Rashford on the bench. And when you substituted, you took off Martial instead of Young.

How negative can you get.

They were running rings around us, players like Gomez, Henderson and Moreno lookin like worldclass players. We were second to every ball, afraid to commit and gave them incentive.

I don't even want to start on the marking type the coach ordered but time after time, they were cutting through us like knife through butter. I can't count the number of times a supposedly average Liverpool player took the ball through the center, dribble 3 or 4 of our players and drive into our box.

We have De Gea to thank though on the other side of the coin, his distribution today was as poor as I've seen it in a while.

And yes, I agree we lack flair players but the few we have (. Mikhitaryan, Martial) are shackled and made to play in a risk-free and boring way.

I don't want to tap about the disaster waiting to happen aka Smalling, he just isn't United standard even for the bench. Am I the only one who noticed the whenever he wants to pass there is a certain way he turns his body towards the direction then send his right arm opposite to where he intends to pass? Every time he wants to pass I know where it is going.

The players as a whole were second to every 50-50 and not fired up for the occasion like the scousers. I don't want to blame Lukaku as Liverpool players missed many chances and also De Gea was outstanding but I think he should have flashed his shot on the left keeper's right) instead of going across the face of the post and the game Would have ended differently because Kopp would have definitely changed the setup and it would have opened up for us.

I do agree that we are not there yet in terms of personnel and also, how we want to perform in the big games and maybe, at the end of season, this game will look like a point won rather than two dropped.

1.) 14 Oct 2017 15:08:00
Agreed, i'm very disappointed in the tactics today. Its pretty embarrassing.

If we had a good game end to end and drew then yeah fair play, but to play like we did today and draw that way feels like a loss and for me personally I feel a lot of resentment towards Jose. With all the money we spend and we are still holding onto results for draws just isn't good enough.
What happens if we get the likes of Bale or Griezeman and we expect to play this way, surely they would have a word.

{Ed025's Note - i agree mate..

2.) 14 Oct 2017 15:10:01
They created 3 good chances and one was off a rebound. We have two fit midfielders. The players were awful today, first 20 minutes we got behind Moreno 3 times and the ball into the box was awful. Liverpool might ship goals but they also have the potential to put 5 past you. I understand people want us to go and attack etc, but at anfield that would play into their hands. I'd rather a point than going and attacking and losing by 3.

3.) 14 Oct 2017 15:11:28
I think the scouse are a better team than people are given them credit for played city of the park until mane got a red .
All managers have good and bad points and performances like this can be seen as a negative .
On the other hand it's performances like this that have served Jose so well during a very successful career.

4.) 14 Oct 2017 15:16:48
Jred, weren't Liverpool losing 1.0 when Mane got sent off? They were holding their own for sure, but they were not playing City off the park.

It was a negative performance and if it wasn't for a wasteful Liverpool then we wouldn't have even succeeded in this game plan.

But I do agree that our attack were toothless and that gave us little chance of ever scoring, surprised Klopp didn't take advantage of that.

5.) 14 Oct 2017 15:24:36
No idea where you got that idea from Jred, played city off the park? City were winning by the time Mane got sent off.

You should play for Jose you would be a good defender for him.

6.) 14 Oct 2017 15:33:52
Tactics and result was as predictable as Norman wisdom heading towards a banana skin at the side of a swimming pool . Didn't like our approach at all but come the end of the season JM will think there's more than one way to skin a cat . I think Liverpool are a bit better than people think and without our best defender and best midfielder it's not a disastrous result it's just the way we got it I can't say I'm a fan of . Not really sure why smalling was highlighted as poor we were under pressure most of the game and didn't concede it was lack of bodies at the other end but that's not smallings doing .

7.) 14 Oct 2017 15:34:08
They where by far the better team syd up until the red card and had far more chances against city in the first half than they did against us .
If it wasn't for a wasteful Liverpool team you would of been a couple up ;)

City are a fantastic team the scouse up until the red where good against city and to be fair where good against us today .
I fancied us for a win today but the scouse are a better team some are given them credit for.

8.) 14 Oct 2017 15:49:37
Even conceding a goal we were the best team during the city game, the sending off DID change the game, denying that would suggest to me you aren't receiving enough benefits from the 'gumment' but as I've stated already based on form united should have took it to Liverpool but Jose was too hesitant, towards the end he brought on an extra defender. SAF would have gone all out, hence my respect for him and lack of it for billion pound Jose. The fans were good today (both sides) but united were boring, you can say thy succeeded in their aim but it doesn't bode well if you don't aim to attack an out of form Liverpool team. Lukaku wasn't effective, rashford should have started martial did diddly squat I think lingaard is useless but atleast that lad puts his all in. You any not agree but I'm not here to stir just provoke debate.

9.) 14 Oct 2017 15:50:10
What's to defend we have been fantastic this season .
Liverpool where far better than city up until the red but aguero done what lukaku never and took the one decent chance .
The scouse played well today as well so far play to them.

10.) 14 Oct 2017 15:25:20
According to Jose he was waiting for Klopp to drop to a two man midfield and then push for a counter attacking goal. But Klopp never pushed for that winner neither. But Klopp has done that all season. When he's needed goals he still sticks with a 3-man midfield. Takes attackers off and replaces them, never adds attackers to what's already on the field. That would frustrate me as a Liverpool fan.

Jose played for the draw, but we were lucky to escape with a draw. This bus today was opened up many times and if they had scored it could have been a disaster as we had no way to change the game.

11.) 14 Oct 2017 16:05:06
I agree with jred on this one to a large degree. I also fancied us to win today but when i saw the team it was obviius that there was no real attacking intent.
Liveroool are low on confidence but do have some very good players and have the best record against the top sides.
The manner of our approach was disappointing but not surprising. Its what jose has done for years.
Darmian is ponderous and negative in every respect but that's why he was picked today.
I think darmian had a negative effect on martial too as he offers no support and creates no space or time for anybody ahead of him.
Still in all a point at anfield is never the worst thing but the manner of our approach is hard to take on the back of our great start.

12.) 14 Oct 2017 16:06:27
Liverpool's attack are good, their midfield are good, their defence are dire. Goalkeeper is dire. The game went pretty much as I expected. We park the bus and let them have the possession, then counter and try and punish. Problem is our attack was p1ss poor and our bus was very lucky, Jones was comical at times. Darmian tragically poor.

So I didn't underestimate Liverpool, I am just disappointed we didn't have a good go. Set pieces were awful too, just a very poor performance and very lucky not to concede.

13.) 14 Oct 2017 17:20:17
Jones made 1 mistake the whole game.

14.) 14 Oct 2017 19:12:38
One potentially catastrophic error, another bad one. and a couple more little errors. Jones has been mostly good this season, but today was far from his best game. But he's human and I have a feeling he may have been injured.



26 Aug 2017 14:45:24
So, a 5-minute extra time but the winning goal is scored in the 98th minute.

1.) 26 Aug 2017 15:11:29
Guardiola time.

2.) 26 Aug 2017 15:16:13
Mike Dean. He's not very good on some of the finer aspects of the game:time, rules etc.

3.) 26 Aug 2017 15:17:19
Extra time. true meaning "lets give city all the time they need to score and then end the game"

4.) 26 Aug 2017 15:17:30
Not sure we can moan about that one with any credibility. thought they had slipped up but they nicked it in the end fair play to them.

5.) 26 Aug 2017 15:22:51
Not that I'm defending City but the 1st minute of added time was spent talking to Howe and Pep, a sub, an injury, so prob would've stretched out, knew it was coming, ridiculous sending off aswell, should never have been a goal anyway cz Mousset won the ball and not a foul but reffing was terrible in that game.

6.) 26 Aug 2017 17:01:14
Ake should have been red carded in the first half. The 5 minute additional time is based on when the board goes up. Ref is entitled to add more on for injuries, subs and time wasting during the period. As annoying as it was to see Citeh win like that, and as bad as the ref might have been generally, there's no way Bournemouth can blame the ref.

7.) 26 Aug 2017 18:31:06
Spot on shaw.



11 Aug 2017 14:49:58
The Portuguese boss also discussed any further possible transfers this month, stating he is 25% away from completing his activity.

“Twenty five per cent [left] means one of four, and we’ve got a central defender that can play in many other positions, which is important, ” said Mourinho.

“Victor [Lindelof] can play right-back and can play central midfield. We got a central midfielder, we got a striker.

“Obviously the 25 per cent would be a player for another position, playing from the sides.

“But we have players and, if we cannot strengthen the team in these areas, we have people we can trust and go for it. ”.

A very big IF hendonred, I've heard this one too many times and I'm not ready to have Ashley Young as any other thing than emergency backup.

Imagine a left back with so much potential and goodwill yet being relegated to the bench by an ageing limited winger (with all due respect to Young)

Jred, I would take Lucas Moura! We desperately need someone with speed and creativity to wreak havoc from the right wing. I'm tired of going into the match knowing everything is coming down the left side.

Ihenacho is not the young player people think.

That's why many are in awe of his performances cis if the age perception.

In a few years time, he'll decline because he's already at the peak.

I'm sure CTR Jose has not realized this game is massive, thanks for pointing it out.

& now he loses concentration trying to get back at De Boer, hope he remembers where he stopped in training and tactics preparation.

I hate when people attack Pogba for his media antics and relate that to his performance or lack of.

Is it difficult to understand that Pogba can actually give the intensity and dedication required without having to stop enjoying himself off the pitch.

So, what "hair" or "social media" issues do the thousands of non-performing players have?

How do players who are party animals or alcoholics manage to play so well because to me, these indulgences are more detrimental to a player's performance than dancing and having a good haircut. 🤷🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️.

I'm in Malaysia and games are between 12am to 3:45am yet I watch, then go to the lab till 9pm!

Yes I've been hurt and disappointed by our performances these years but I never once contemplated not watching (intentionally) .

Having said that, you have every right to decide what you wish or how you feel so, I don't fault you because I disagree with you.

You have every right to live and enjoy life the way you want.

I'm not saying he's a great player but he's definitely a better CM than Lingard.

& if Pogba had been playing further upfield, Shelvey wouldn't have had the freedom to look world class.

BTW, I didn't necessarily mean it has to be Herrera but it could have been Carrick or McTominay.

Matic has not gone off the boil but is tired.
Watch how he covers every blade of the grass on both wings and center of the park in every game.

We played a midfield 3 of BS. Why not play Herrera, Matic and Pogba with Pogba on the left?

It isn't only about playing a midfield 3 but also, the players selected and how they are set up.

Mourinho is a stubborn person and will only end up digging his grave.

BTW, like I've always said, our entire back line is a disgrace. Regardless of what people say or think, not a single player in our back line today should be a Manchester United regular. With Lindelof, Rojo and Shaw all available I have no idea what's wrong with Mourinho.
We have more balance in our squad now to play 3-5-2 or 3-4-3 which he insisted on playing last season despite limitation in personnel. So why isn't he playing it now especially against "weaker" teams?

On a final note, I'd pick Tuanzebe a million times before giving Smalling a glance.
