Just quick post in appreciation of Michael Carrick, who plays his last game for United on Sunday.
I've loved watching him play throughout his career.
Calm and fluid on and off the ball and an intelligent footballer.
I'm glad he's staying on at United in some capacity. He's an important link to our last European success and Ferguson's last great team.
I know he's had some bad days at the office, who doesn't, but he obviously loves the club and a great example for young players coming through the ranks.

Carrick has been great for us in the post Scholes/ Keane era. Very underrated but read the game so well defensively and gave us rhythm going forward. We have missed his poise in recent years.
I wonder whether his type of player is one of the pieces we are missing. Link the back 4 to the midfield in a Pirlo way (not a direct comparison)
Whether that could be with a Kroos or a Veratti type I just think we have a solid HM in Matic but need the rhythm player.
Not seen anything of players linked like Savic or Fred to know if they are the type.

I agree, he is very underrated.

3.) 11 May 2018 13:37:08
Carrick made countless stops in the penalty box by making great recovery runs to cut out crosses and cutbacks, something he never got enough credit for.

Very bizarre looking Arsenal team even taking an upcoming Europa League game into consideration.

Have we fast forwarded 2 months - we are treating this game like a friendly. Disgrace so far, no tempo, no umpf - terrible.

2.) 29 Apr 2018 18:10:41
Completely agree Beast. Holiday bags packed, clearly little interest in making starting eleven of cup final. Tedious. Slow. Too many touches.

I thought we made a very good account of ourselves against Arsenal under 18s to be honest.

Good morning. I'm still struggling to understand the thought process behind the tactics used on Tuesday night. I'm also really disappointed by Mourinho's comments post-match. I'd actually thought after the Palace fight back and the Liverpool display that we were in for a strong finish to the season and hopeful for next season. Shows you what I know. I thought his comments were pretty disrespectful and lacked class.
As I've mentioned class, I'm just wondering what people's thoughts are regarding Mourinho working as a pundit for Russia Today during the 2018 World Cup? I think it's an interesting comparison with Guardiola who is fined for showing his solidarity with the independence movement in Catalonia. I'm not saying either is right or wrong, I'd just like to know other posters thoughts on this as it provides, I think, an interesting perspective on two managers and their ideologies and morals.

Yellow Benteens

The display was so bad and the selection and tactics were even worse. But his post match comments were a disgrace and while I was never his biggest fan in the past, I am now even more determined to see this arrogant, useless idiot out of our club. I can't believe the management haven't reprimanded him. This was an insult to our club and to SAF who was at the match and is a million times the manager mourinho will ever be.
I'm telling you now that United will never win the league with him in charge and we'll never progress either. He's sold KDB and Salah in the past and has turned pogba and Sanchez into nothing. He's destroyed Martial and hererra. He keeps playing fellaini when it is clear to everyone that he's not suited and not good enough.
His tactics and team selections are a joke.
And finally, he's a miserable idiot who seems to think he is still top dog. Well, I can name a load of managers who will run rings round him.

2.) 16 Mar 2018 09:13:35
Most people go on about stability. Were not a sacking club. It hasn’t done Real Madrid or Chelsea any harm. Bollo*ks if he ain’t good enough get rid. The last 5 years have been an utter disgrace. Bored to tears with turgid dross.

3.) 16 Mar 2018 09:23:46
Based on your language, I think you are suggesting that one is right and the other is wrong. Here is my view, where I do the same, but the other way around.

The FA should stop being toothless. If Guardiola's actions are deemed punishable and he continues to do them, then they need to take real action. His current stance is, as I understand it, 'I know the FA think what I am doing is wrong. I'm going to continue to do it anyway, because I don't think it is' with the additional caveat of 'and there are no real repercussions that affect me, the team or that would cause my employer to intercede. ' I think his actions show a complete disregard for the FA, and as a result disrespect for English football - that being said I think the FA bring most of this upon themselves.

Regarding Mourinho's contract with Russia Today. There is no reason why any of us should have an issue with him acting as a pundit during the World Cup. At the time of him signing his contract British-Russian relations were better than they currently are, and presumably he now has contractual obligations.

If dealing with the Russians is deemed as morally reprehensible, then our national team shouldn't be attending at all and our weak FA should've made a stand about this. Whilst this does not relate directly to the decision our manager may make, it is probably reasonable to suggest that our decision making body should set the tone with international football relations. They obviously don't and will continue to be useless.


4.) 16 Mar 2018 10:00:55
The thought process was to sit deep and let sevilla have the ball. Then when we won it dump it to fellani and have runners off him to pick up the balls.

John Beckesque.

5.) 16 Mar 2018 10:16:47
Jack B, I'm not suggesting either one is right or wrong. Mourinho is totally free to do what he wants with his time. I'm hoping it opens up a bit of debate on the subject of our manager. I'm using the Russia Today and Catalonia Independence as two contrasting aspects in two totally different, ideologically opposed managers. I think it's an intriguing juxtaposition. Regards Mourinho and Russia Today: I don't know exactly how long he is contracted to work on the World Cup but, I would of hoped that either:1/ he'd be working hard on how to sort out the mess he's made for himself and get the best out this team or 2/ taking a break with his family, reflecting and recharging and getting ready to go again. Taking up this pundit position smacks of grubby money making and a chance to indulge his ego. I'm sure Guardiola will be on our screens during the summer. It will be interesting if he is wearing a little ribbon on his lapel. I'd feel the same if it was the BBC or ITV. I used to watch RT a lot. It's incredibly biased and one sided. To be honest though, it's no worse than Fox News in its right wing agenda.
I'm just trying to make a comparison between our manager and his main rivals actions. I think it's interesting, says something about both of their mindsets and is worthy of debate. I'm interested in what other posters think and value everyone's opinion.
People say you should keep politics out of sport but it isn't, unfortunately, as it is a global, money making machine and is used, unfortunately, for political means by every country.

6.) 16 Mar 2018 10:37:02
I'm still in a state regarding Tuesday night's result and it isn't going away anytime soon. Regarding his contract with a Russian broadcaster, frankly I do not care, the contract was signed before any of the current events had happened and he's free to ho our that contract as far as I'm concerned. One contract I'd love him to renege on would be the one he recently signed to continue to be Manchester United manager. Jose normally gets a rough press when it comes to comments that he's made but when it comes to comments that actually besmirch the club that pays his wages then they are curiously silent, José should have been given a serious dressing down by the hierarchy over his Porto, Real Madrid comments. It is one thing to bore us to death with the kind of inertia football he espouses but it is another when he disrespects the club and fans when doing so, José out!

7.) 16 Mar 2018 11:12:43
His post match comments I thought were far worse than the performance. Every manager gets their tactics wrong occasionally, and every team has a bad day at the office now and again.

So I could forgive that in isolation, however, those tactics and those kind of performances happen far too often.

But to come out when the fans are hurting after elimination from a major tournament and remind them of past eliminations and to insinuate that we got knocked out because of the mentality of the club and not Jose's failing was out of line.

It is that more than the defeat that will turn fans against him.

As for going to Russia for the world cup? I would kind of expect it from a club manager, a chance to watch other teams, other tactics and watch players the club maybe scouting in the flesh in a different team and how they adapt to that. I think that is vital for a top level club manager. I don't think politics should come into it.

8.) 16 Mar 2018 12:05:19
I don't no what he was thinking with his comments . Normally pretty good with the press but dropped the ball on this.

9.) 16 Mar 2018 14:13:25
Maybe we misinterpreted his comments, what he was trying to point out was his hat-trick of knocking United out of the UCL.



17 Jul 2017 21:30:32
Just seen some recent photographs of Luke Shaw, looks like has lost a few pounds. I hope he can kick-start his career because just prior to his broken leg, I thought he was playing really well and looked a threat going forward.
I think Perisic will surprise a few people this season, if he comes in. He's a text book Mourinho type player, big, strong, eight litre engine and will get the ball in the box. I think he's tailor made for Premiership. Anyway, thanks to all the Eds for all the info and banter.

Yellow Benteens

1.) 17 Jul 2017 21:47:08
Totally agree, in respect of the Perisic deal, if he is what the Boss needs, then let's see how it goes? We all have to take a step back at the moment, We all need to trust what is being built!

2.) 17 Jul 2017 23:45:03
Perisic seems to me like a slightly less talented but more resilient player than Bale.

3.) 18 Jul 2017 09:18:29
When people talk about a 'united player' I think Perisic fits the mould that people talk about, a hard working tricky winger with pace, just because he's not a big name people won't be happy but looking at his attributes he fulfils a lot of things we currently don't have, especially on that left side.



18 Jun 2017 16:02:34
How about any players wearing gloves have to pay 10% of their weekly take home to a local charity. Also any players wearing headphones entering a stadium is also fined the same amount. I'd like to see a tattoo tariff and also something needs to be done about ridiculous beards.

Seriously though, something should be done about the haranguing of referees, pretend card wavers and play acting. If these were dealt with correctly, there would be less time wasting.
I quite liked the idea of a stadium clock linked to the ref's watch.
Also, badge kissing must be stopped.

Yellow Benteens

1.) 18 Jun 2017 16:59:26
Maybe we should make the rest of society do that as well. Charity would be a thing of the past in no time. Or maybe just fine stupid comments.

2.) 18 Jun 2017 17:18:35
Yellow Benteens you must be fun at parties.

3.) 18 Jun 2017 17:35:48
I was replying to a funny post by AJH, and was trying to add a bit more humour, not sure why it wasn't posted with that thread. Probably me and my Luddite fingers.
It would be nice if wealth was fairly distributed within our society, as opposed to multi millionaire tax dodgers. Then there would be less of a need and pressure on charity. Sounds ideal really. Sorry for any offence TopB.

4.) 18 Jun 2017 19:10:42
Yellow, I overlooked gloves, you are spot on. As well as badge kissing there is also the pointing to their name on the back of their shirt, ridiculous. I don't see why when a goal is scored a simple handshake cannot suffice.

5.) 18 Jun 2017 19:59:11
Also that heart thing they do with their hands after a goal, WTF is that all about, Footballing Masons?

6.) 18 Jun 2017 20:39:06
Absolutely Beast. I'd like to add thumb sucking and rocking your arms from side to side as if comforting a baby.

No hugging kissing, shaking hands in the tunnel before a game and no half and half scarfs.

None taken yellow. All good.

Half and half scarves, unbelievable. When did that become ok. Also, kissing your wrist, looking up to the sky, presumably to a loved one in heaven.

10.) 18 Jun 2017 20:03:31
I bow to your wit and wisdom AJH. I'd also like to add to your list professional footballers in shampoo and male skin care adverts.

11.) 18 Jun 2017 21:51:54
quite right beast all that and the big girls blouses who roll around when tackled are my main pet hates, oh and the fact that no one is allowed to put a challenge these days too annoys me, give me the old days of when we slide tackled on red ash parks with a big smile on our faces through the shear enjoyment of playing the game.

My missus has told me that a Brazilian might be on the cards for her before we go on our summer holidays this year.
I'd disappointed if she means Anderson, we're not going all inclusive!

I know it was quite a while back now but I often thought the signing of Fangzhou had one eye on tapping into the Asian market. I think he played once for United in 3 seasons and he was unfortunately dubbed the Chinese Rooney by some sections of the press. Talk about setting somebody up for failure.
Sorry Red, but I had to read your last two sentences a couple of times, were they edited out of an old Mind Your Language script?

Thanks for that Ed 002, Max would be an excellent buy for United. He would totally revitalise our left side. Shame it isn't likely, he's a good player and exactly what United need. Have a good day.

He has so much potential but he just wasn't ready for such a high profile move. Probably lacks a bit of maturity. I watched a game on telly that he came on in, he looked lost. You're right ed, United definitely dodged a bullet there.
Hopefully he can get some good advice and make his next move right for him and realise his potential.

I rate Rashford and Lingard highly. Lingard, for want of a more suitable phrase, really paid his dues with a few loan deals in the Championship. I saw him in a couple of games at Birmingham and Brighton. He looked the player with real quality but was bullied of the ball a lot and I think he has definitely recognised his strengths and learned to use his footballing brain more as a result of that experience. He puts himself in good positions, has good awareness and a lovely touch on the ball.
I think Rashford has some of the same qualities. He's great at exploiting space on the pitch and is great on the ball, just like Lingard. He has the pace and natural ability which terrifies defences.
But there has been a big dip in form and confidence this season.
I think quite often with Rashford, he goes to make a run in to space and isn't picked up by our so called creative players in midfield. I think he then gets a bit frustrated and starts to make poor decisions.
Our midfield gives the ball away so much when pressed, which is obviously a massive problem. There is no creativity from our defenders. And the tactics used by our manager are more about stopping the other team play and not losing as opposed to expressing yourselves as players and going out to win the game.
The addition of Sanchez hasn't helped, who seems to be trying to beat the opposition single handed.
I don't think, especially at his age, he has become a bad footballer. A few unfortunate circumstances have conspired against him which have had a detrimental effect on his natural game. He is not Wellbeck 2.0.
I'm not too sure about how he will perform at the World Cup. He is low in confidence and again, I think he'll suffer from a lack of creativity in midfield. I hope he comes good though and scores a few goals.
He'll come good again lads because he is good and I really hope that's with United.

Totally agree, he's surprised me to be honest, I didn't think he'd make it at United, but he's worked hard, kept at it and he'd be one of the first names on the team sheet now.
The Fletcher Moss story is really classy, those lads must of felt 12 foot tall.
Odd two people didn't agree. He deserves some credit.

Excellent post Mumbles and I'm virtually 100% in agreement with you.
But we mustn't forget that part of the club's ethos is playing attacking, exciting football. It's part of the club's heritage and identity and forsaking that does a disservice to the memory of the Busby Babes. And also the incredible achievement of Sir Matt Busby in winning the European Cup 10 years later. I still think it's the greatest achievement in any sport ever.
Of course we can't field a team of 18 year old Mancunians. But we could have that kind of spirit out on the pitch. Pep and his team's always seem to have the spirit of Cruyff about them. But we've had great players here, great managers here as well. The present manager and players should identify with that a bit more than they are.
I'm actually hopeful for next season, I think Mourinho will address what's needed and we will see more joie de vivre next season.
