Looks as though bakayoko has made Chelsea his first choice.




06 Dec 2015 10:25:12
Just seen the comments from post match conference with LVG. 'I don't understand that they shout attack attack attack, we were the attacking team, not west ham united'

jesus is this guy for real? Does he not understand what this clubs DNA is all about? I know ed002 has said there's no plans to change manager until 2017 but I think this man's day might come a lot sooner.


1.) 06 Dec 2015 20:54:32
He has certainly bought into the lie that possession = attacking football.

That said, I couldn't watch yesterday, but I thought I saw stats showing a lot of shots, just mostly off target.

Ìf we create the chances but just can't convert them, he only bares limited responsibility for that failing.

It's when we have 70%+ possession and only 4-5 shots in total that is really his fault.

2.) 06 Dec 2015 21:09:35
Haven't seen the stats for the game. How many of those efforts were for the second half alone?

Call me old-fashioned, but I like to see my team attempt to attack from the start, when we're playing at home. West Ham were very unlucky not to be going into the break, 2-0 up, and only the most wide-eyed optimist would have had us coming back from that.

3.) 06 Dec 2015 21:11:42
Most of the so called shots were desperate. Misleading stat.

Great chances it was 4-2 West Ham.

4.) 07 Dec 2015 07:35:33
LVG out! he is not changing anything to try and improve performances so for me he has to go, no doubt about it.

5.) 08 Dec 2015 10:53:16
I did wonder how misleading the stats might be.

I remember taunting a mate who supports Arsenal about boring possession football a few years ago. He pointed out that in our most recent encounter, they'd had more shots as well as possession. I made him sit down and watch a recording of the game with me. Sure enough, they'd barely had a shot until about the 75th minute, then started shooting wildly every time they got within 35 yards of the goal.

I'm so glad I haven't seen that mate recently.



31 Aug 2015 20:56:43
Griezmann has just posted a very cryptic message on twitter. Saying it will match tomorrow. stay tuned!

I think this place would go into meltdown if he signed. i'm still sticking to my prediction that he will sign for us.


1.) 31 Aug 2015 21:23:16
WHat did it say? I'm intrigued?

I'd go mad (in a good way) if he signs!

{Ed004's Note - He would be my ideal signing}

2.) 31 Aug 2015 21:27:03
Berahino i would think is still a possibility with Wilson going the other way.

3.) 31 Aug 2015 21:32:04

The closer translation is even more interesting. it's

"Tomorrow it will come true"

4.) 31 Aug 2015 21:33:54
hes publicly said he's a Utd fan right?

5.) 31 Aug 2015 21:37:57
Just seen the tweet? Very cryptic indeed?

New number 11? Let's hope so!

6.) 31 Aug 2015 21:47:27
That's the one player I'd like do see here.

Can play in practically anywhere upfront, score goals, is very aggressive when it comes to attacking, is in a very good age.

That one would make me shut up.

7.) 31 Aug 2015 22:03:15
As griezman actually said tommorow it will come true ?

8.) 31 Aug 2015 22:07:41
I pray it's true don't see it happening tho it would need more than a day remember the fiasco with Herrera and the release clause.

9.) 31 Aug 2015 22:13:05
Thanks Dark, twitter French translator isn't great lol! Yes ed 004 all would be well if we signed him. I predicted it a few weeks back that we would sign him, pay his buyout and be done with it. He is phenomenal.

And yes both him and his brother are huge man utd fans. Maybe it's the dream for him to play here

10.) 31 Aug 2015 22:45:03
Think he said that the tweet is nothing to do with a transfer.

11.) 31 Aug 2015 23:29:08
Yeah publicist came out and said nothing to do with a transfer. Never believe a publicist though. I've worked with a few!!



30 Aug 2015 22:03:30
Big shout from Italian journalist tancredi palmieri that UTD have bid 100mil euro for Bale. Ed002 has said repeatedly that Bale has his price! Have we met it?? Throw in De Gea and get it done?


1.) 30 Aug 2015 23:11:09
Even if we doubled it there is no way Bale would want to leave trophy contenders for that shower today. LVG would pick him but tell him he can only pass sideways or launch long balls when Fellaini comes on when we are chasing games

2.) 30 Aug 2015 23:18:14
Won't happen. Wouldn't surprise me if we get nobody else this window.

3.) 31 Aug 2015 00:56:25
Good post angel.
Shame about Jamie's reply. And here's why!
It's completely ridiculous to announce that LVG would do this or that with a player of Bale's quality. Bale is exactly what we are missing, I've said all Summer that we need something different in the final third and ideally CF and he ticks the boxes. Today's result came about because of a disastrous 5 minutes, including an incompetent performance from our stand in GK. Jamie also bashes Fellaini, why? Because we have plan B? What else do you do with 15 minutes to go when the game plan isn't working anymore because of a nightmare? Look at Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Spurs, Southampton, Stoke, actually anyone barr City who have the gods smiling on them at present and are playing well. Jamie I applaud you for highlighting the total ignorance that exists in the modern day football fan, regardless of club. My advice to you is please take the time to actually watch a game of football from time to time instead of following results and the occasional MOTD. United look 'almost there' to me, today's result was dissapointing but for reasons I'm not sure have been suggested accurately.
Cheers as always Eds.

4.) 31 Aug 2015 00:50:23
Finally people starting to talk and see sense. LVG is beyond a joke. Why are we persisting with this clown? His tactics are awful. We have to get a striker AT LEAST. He's come in, sold Welbeck, sent Hernandez out on loan and obviously won't play him as proven at Swansea. He's let RVP go and got rid of Falcao. We have no options if Rooney is injuredz we used to have 4 top strikers in the great United sides. We're down to 1! AGGGHHHH!!!!!

5.) 31 Aug 2015 01:58:26
We have to sign someone. There are plenty out there who could improve our attacking play.

After today, there isn't an excuse. I just can't see us competing with the attack as it is. We need someone who can put the ball in the back of the next, and can do it on a consistent basis.

6.) 31 Aug 2015 09:52:10
You're right, Ed002 did say Bale will be sold at the right price if they can get Reus.
Honestly, I think this summer is the best time to sign Bale. Next season, Bayern might be after him (and will most certainly get him), trying to push out Robben/Ribery as they have missed out on KDB.

7.) 31 Aug 2015 10:46:55
king giggsy yeah almost there we had three players playing out of position having spent €424 million since Fergie left and it's only 4 games in. We need a Gk a CB a RW and a Striker. I'm not sure how you quantify almost there but 3 goals in 4 games can be called almost there. Yesterday as soon as Swansea scored the second it was game over, that team has no fight in them. we currently have 3 players (DDG who wants out, Shaw and Darmian) that would push for a starting place in one of the big sides. the biggest concern is the style which is terrible to watch and not even successful yeah I hear people would take 1-0 if it meant winning things. We play this boring sideways rubbish, but won't win anything either. the fact we haven't signed any top players isn't a money issue its nobody wants to work with LVG look how he has treated some players really think we dropped interest in Pedro or he didn't fancy playing for a man who publicly hung Valdes out to dry.



28 Jul 2015 12:00:41
Hi Eds, have any of you got any idea what English club was discussing a potential move for Zlatan Ibrahimovic this week. Ed002 mentioned it on Arsenal page a few days agp. Thanks in advance





angelred's banter posts with other poster's replies to angelred's banter posts


18 Jun 2017 14:42:13
So Joses mouthpiece duncan castles reporting that United are looking into the signing ronaldo and according to dimarzio ronaldo wants to move to United.

2 credible sources. I mean, could this actually happen?


{Ed004's Note - Ronaldo is currently my favourite player outside of Manutd in the world but I just don't think we have the players to get the best out of him. If we could get him for anything under 100 million and it wouldn't affect us strengthening our other positions I would be all for it.
However, we need to address rb, cb (done), lb and cdm if we want to get the best out of Ronaldo}

1.) 18 Jun 2017 15:20:30
I get the feeling ed that there has always been some kind of rainy day fund to bring Ronaldo back if he wanted to come . I don't reckon it would affect the rest of our business we will lose millions off the wage list this year.

{Ed004's Note - If we are signing Ronaldo we need to build the team around him. Which means full backs that are attacking minded and have excellent deliveries. Someone he can play with up top (think Rashford or Martial would work here tbf) and midfielders who can dominate the play. Mkhitaryan, Herrera, DM, Pogba would work well}

2.) 18 Jun 2017 17:00:14
004, reading your comments, it seems you think a lot needs to change to bring Ronaldo back. I do agree with everything you said, but do you think that in doing so we will need to double our summer budget (Ronaldo + 1 more on top of what we already plan to bring in) and fast track our progression that is probably due to happen over 1 or 2 seasons rather than one summer?

For the record, I think he's the best player of all time and would absolutely love to have him back.

{Ed004's Note - I don't see why it would be Ronaldo + 1 more. It would probably be one less. Instead of a winger (Perisic) and striker (Morata) it would probably just be Ronaldo. The priority for me this summer would be addressing our defence so that our attack has more freedom (obviously Ibrahimovic goals need replaced as well)}

3.) 18 Jun 2017 15:56:58
I'm with you on the financial side. i'm quite sure they're would be huge commercial benefits for the club that will of set some of the increased cost.
004 there are not to many of us banging the full back drum. I see both sides as weak offensively not withstanding valencias good season defensively. If we are replacing shaw rose or mendy would be ideal if we are keeping him tierny wiuld be brilliant and would be a huge challenge to shaw.

4.) 18 Jun 2017 19:23:35
Where are the commercial benefits? If we are taking shirt sales it doesn't change our deal, we don't see any of the extra cash. Where else do we earn, it's not as if we need to sell tickets is it?

5.) 18 Jun 2017 20:00:43
Not happening, has had a stellar season and looking for a big pay rise.

6.) 18 Jun 2017 22:45:33
It's happening this deal dudes. Every day there is more evidence and movement now reporters are all jumping on it not just the fakers. I still think someone else coming in is a bigger shock. I don't know who yet but it's something someone in Spain told me 3 weeks ago about a Chelsea player. 😆😆.

7.) 18 Jun 2017 22:50:05
Anthony having ronaldo will increase sponsorship deals appearance fees pre season etc there are many ways that the club can benefit. There will be increased revenue for sure. Not enough to cover the cost but to help cover.
Addidas would benefit from the shirt sales not united.

8.) 19 Jun 2017 05:09:28
Really interesting posts. Thanks!

I'm wondering though, what are the deficiencies of the current players that mean we wouldn't get the most out of Ronaldo?

9.) 18 Jun 2017 21:54:01
ken for the 100th time just leave tierney where he is.



17 May 2017 18:02:40
Pace gathering regarding michael Keane back to us for 25mil. Good business, don't we get 25% of the sell on fee back? 😂

All those haters laughing at us buying back another academy player for a high fee. Well we get the last laugh getting back 25% 😂.


1.) 17 May 2017 18:50:38
Not bad eh, we loan him to Burnley for a few years and pay Burnley about £20m to do it 😃. Good business Burnley, can't fault them.

{Ed004's Note - if he is a replacement for Jones/Smalling I wouldn't complain but he can't be the only signing as I'm not sure he is good enough to be a mainstay in the team}

2.) 17 May 2017 19:20:03
Probs not Ed, but i recks we will sell Smalling and Jones, they've had enough chances and with Rojo out for who know's long, that would leave us very light. As Ed2 said on the sharkopod, Lindelof is very much doable, so i recks we will go for them both. Still feel left back is a huge priority, pretty much been putting anyone there this season. Huge summer ahead, but all starts with next weds for me and how that goes, could effect our next five years IMO.

{Ed004's Note - Centre back options of Bailly + Keane for right side and Rojo + Lindelof on the left would be very strong. I can see Darmian, Jones, Smalling and Blind leaving this window. So hopefully we have Valencia + Semedo for the right and Shaw + Tierney/Aaron Martin competing on the left}

3.) 17 May 2017 20:05:09
To be fair we would also have paid Keane about 8m in wages if he stayed and he would have less experience so not as bad as it seems.

4.) 17 May 2017 20:38:59
Ed04 i like those options. 4 out 4 in with tfm and tuanzebe as further options and a lot more balance.

5.) 17 May 2017 21:08:51
I genuinely like michael Keane, good defender.

Will be interesting to see how it plays out but according to ed lindelof is still 1st choice.

6.) 17 May 2017 21:39:34
Ken take those rose tinted specs off. There's no way he was on anywhere even close to that.

7.) 17 May 2017 23:22:41
Wazza it's not unusual for a player coming through the academy to sign a 40k per week contract if part of the first team squad and matchday squads.
So he could well have earned that sort of money. The is s he is now he will get 80 k per week plus sign ons costs etc. My point was more that we are getting a much more experienced and match hardened player coming back. A player that looks much better than smalling imo. If we sell smalling and buy Keane we could come out breaking even and have a much better player. In today's market we must be able to get 20m for smalling and woody has done ok recently on player sales.

8.) 18 May 2017 08:28:01
Ken even if we round his time away from the club up to 2 years you've still got him on over £76K p/ w.

I very much doubt he got near £20K a week.

No doubt that his time away at Burnley has brought him on now and he probably wouldn't be as good now had he stayed.

9.) 18 May 2017 12:29:15
My bad wazza I thought he was gone 4 years for some reason.



05 May 2017 13:37:07
Sitting with the arsenal supporters for the game on Sunday! Any advice? 😂.


{Ed004's Note - If you want to make friends bring a "Wenger In" or "In Wenger we Trust" sign}

1.) 05 May 2017 13:54:25
I'd 8-2 see you get in trouble angel.

2.) 05 May 2017 13:55:13
I had a ticket to the Arsenal game too. In with the home fans because it was through work. I gave it up. Couldn't face listening to the moaning Arsenal fans to be honest. And that my missus is going into hospital Monday morning to have our 3 kid, couldn't face that on a hang over!

3.) 05 May 2017 14:35:04
I sat with Arsenal supporters at Villa park for the 1999 FA cup semi final as the only way I could get a ticket was through my gooner supporting cousin who sat next to me. Before the match I was cheering on the Utd players in the warm up to test any possible adverse reaction from the gooners around me. There was just a lot of good natured bantering. When Beckham scored I instinctively got to my feet and cheered (in hindsight a stupid move I know) the so called Arsenal supporters came at me from every direction and from as far back as 15 rows. They even attacked my cousin who was wearing an Arsenal scarf and had been cheering his team on the whole game. I got ejected, the Villa staff wouldn't accommodate me in the Utd end so I missed that goal. Had to wait outside for my cousin to take him home but had the last laugh as we won. So my advice would be to sit still and quiet and hopefully if we win listen to the tirade of abuse that will come from the so called Arsenal supporters. When they win they think they are the greatest but boy when they lose they don't half moan.

4.) 05 May 2017 16:53:21
I'd happily take a 'Wenger in' sign. All the while he is there they don't compete.
Opposite to us I fear they will improve with another manager.

5.) 05 May 2017 18:00:55
I sat with an Arsenal friend at the Etihad back in 2012 when we won. When we scored our first I jumped up as one does, then looking round realised it was probably not a good idea. When Welbeck scored the winner later on I scarcely moved an inch. It's a good idea to practice internalising the emotions.

6.) 05 May 2017 18:31:36
Bring a bottle of warm pee.

7.) 05 May 2017 22:11:08
I think troopz and DT would beg to differ ed.

8.) 06 May 2017 08:02:19
I sat a few times with the City fans at Maine road for the derby matches in the 70's and 80's when the atmosphere was tasty. My advice would be keep your mouth shut, stand up when they do but don't cheer either side. Blend in. I retained all my features by doing that.

{Ed025's Note - just be lik a man city supporter and dont make any noise at the game whatsoever.. :)

9.) 06 May 2017 09:15:21
Ed025, empty seats make no noise!

{Ed025's Note - your right there red man.. :)



16 Apr 2017 11:02:20
Just seen the luke shaw interview with Geoff shreeves. Have to say, fantastic stuff from shaw. I was very impressed by his attitude.

I'm glad he knows what he has to do and I really hope that he goes on to be our left back for a long time.


{Ed004's Note - So do I. I think this season is a write off but I'm praying he takes the fitness coach on holidays with him again this summer}

1.) 16 Apr 2017 11:38:07
Sounds like he was living with somebody who has been a bad influence on him, to be honest it shocked me when he said he was only 21, I'm sure we all did things at that age that we wouldn't do now we are a bit older (I am aware some on here are young) so let's hope this isn't just hot air and he really is going to knuckle down and work hard. If he hits his potential he will be our left back for years to come.

2.) 16 Apr 2017 13:41:37
Aye spot on, mentioned this yesterday on here, let's hope it comes good for him.

3.) 16 Apr 2017 13:58:12
I'm happy that he has finally realised that he's not been putting enough. But wasn't impressed by him mentioning mourinho by name instead of calling him "the manager" or "the boss". It shows a lack of respect and understanding of what is required of him.
I'm not hopeful but I hope I'm going to be proven wrong.

4.) 16 Apr 2017 14:45:10
I watched the interview and I'm pretty certain that he was referring to mourinho as the manager?

5.) 16 Apr 2017 17:35:31
That's nit picking schmid as I think he was more than respectful to the manager.

6.) 16 Apr 2017 18:38:15
Perhaps mourinho wants the players to call him that, Fergie wanted gaffer, major nit picking.



13 Feb 2017 10:39:49
Can anybody help with luke shaws situation at the moment?

I know it was spoken about some time back and it was discussed that because of injuries and some other issues he had to work to regain fitness etc but his recent omissions from the team and the squad are quite concerning considering he was bought for a lot of money to be our first choice LB.


1.) 13 Feb 2017 11:00:38
The only thing I can say is that Luke is working well. I don't have any problem and he's working well. He's fighting hard, there is no problem with him, "

"He has to work and wait, " Mourinho stressed. "But I want one defender on the bench and the defender on the bench is somebody who can play more than one position.

"And Darmian can play left-back, right-back and would be an emergency central defender for us, so my choice was Darmian" jose after the game at the weekend.

2.) 13 Feb 2017 11:34:13
Makes good sense, cheers Jred.

3.) 13 Feb 2017 13:00:22
I hope so jred. just seems a strange situation at the moment.

But I'm not sure if I believe everything mourinho puts out to the press.

4.) 13 Feb 2017 13:40:10
How long was miki out the team?

5.) 13 Feb 2017 16:26:02
Not sure pal. He's only been with us a few months so I didn't calculate the time he was out but for me it was very feasible as he was coming from a different league and was a Jose signing.

I'm sure it's like what jose says anyway and he will be flying in a few months and there'll be no more worries. I just wanna see him do well and not lose out on such a talent.

6.) 13 Feb 2017 17:31:54
Angel I think the situation is clear. He is fit and available just not being selected. Once he proves his fitness and gets his chance it will be up to him to take it. He is down the pecking order at the moment but I'm sure he will get a chance and when he does its up to him to play better than blind / darmian/ rojo. If he does do better he will keep his place.
Jose said Rashford is doing well in training and learning more about tactics and positioning every week. I assume shaw is doing the same so when he gets his chance he will be ready. Lots of ability but has lots to learn Jose has obviously identified that same as he did with miki. If shaw comes out a better player then it will be down to him and the manager combined.
There are so many games coming up I expect him to play his part sooner rather than later I hope he grasps the opportunity with both hands.
It may be even next season before he nails down that spot as his own. I hope he has the patience and shows the desire and believes in himself enough to do that.
Maybe that's what Jose is waiting to see. Who knows.

7.) 13 Feb 2017 17:53:24
He is still only 21, coming back from an awful injury and don't forget coming back from 8 weeks out injured .

Also there are other players who don't deserve to be dropped .
Dont forget the media allready had the knives out looking for a jose and shaw story, look at some off the stick he has got on this site even .
Shaw will need a few games to get back to match sharpness but the moment he has a bad/ average game the media, some fans will be right on his back .

Jose has taken him out the spot light like he has with others and i'm sure will bring him back at the right time.

8.) 13 Feb 2017 19:36:22
I think he's almost certain to start against Blackburn, and maybe St. Ettiene if we put 3-4 goals past them in the home game.

9.) 14 Feb 2017 11:42:55
Sorry jred I didn't see anyone giving shaw stick at all. Maybe im completely wrong there but I think people on here are more concerned. Do you think posters want him to fail or something? From what I have seen and read people are perplexed about the situation and wonder what's really going on.

Some of the Eds gave some great insight and that's all we really have to go at the moment. Sounded much more than the fact he had an injury and is only 21. Age is a nothing excuse for me.

10.) 14 Feb 2017 12:52:29
Both Shaw and Smalling will be gone in the summer.
Jose no likey, unfortunately 😆😆.

11.) 14 Feb 2017 13:07:09
There where plenty given out stick, should of seen the abuse martial got the other week on the live chat (he wasnt even playing ) .
And before xmas shaw was getting plenty to .
Of course age is a factor, your no where near the finished article at 21, the lad like a lot of 21 year olds still has a lot to learn .
But imo he will develop in to a top player.

12.) 14 Feb 2017 15:40:45
He did it with mhiki an martial and they responded. He did it with Morgan and Memphis and they didn't.

13.) 14 Feb 2017 17:17:06
Well if that's the case they ain't fans at all.

I know he's only 21 and never said he'd be finished article but 21 you should have head down and be working socks off, don't give anyone any excuses. that's what I did anyway.

14.) 15 Feb 2017 00:53:22
I think Shaw will be gone as he's not good enough tactically or mentally. His first touch is not good either. I don't think Jose rates him and there are plenty out there who are far superior.

I agree ed. Semedo looks the business. I hope we can snap him up before barca/ real come calling.

14 Jun 2017 20:40:04
I doubt fullback is a priority. I think we are in desperate need of any especially if shaw can prove he is up to the task.

But ed002 has said Martin and semedo remain targets so let's see how the next couple of months play out.

Maybe it's a case of get the priorities in first, CB, DM, AM, CF and then look at the fullback situation.


{Ed004's Note - I'm hoping that's the situation. Getting those 4 and then going for fullbacks. Really hoping we move for Semedo. I think he's a wonderful player and worthy successor to Valencia. He's the type of player we let go to Barcelona or Madrid and then complain in years time that he's the best in the world in his position. He would be tricky to sign though and I think there is a lot of interest in him}

CSM I'd have Joses opinion over yours any day.

If Jose wants perisic then that's all we need to know.

In my humble opinion I think perisic is a fantastic player and would be a great attribute to this squad.

I'd imagine it's close to being done.

Ed002 with his sharkopod seems to be absolutely bang on with his knowledge.
