Looks as though bakayoko has made Chelsea his first choice.

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.

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

Welcome to Man United Nemanja. A fantastic signing and something we have been crying out for, for years.


1.) 31 Jul 2017 16:27:59
Agreed angel. Not a chelsea player anymore he is a united player now. Whoo whoo.

2.) 31 Jul 2017 16:33:02
Whats that coming over the hill? .

3.) 31 Jul 2017 16:34:17
Brilliant news 😃.

4.) 31 Jul 2017 17:07:15
35m seems a good price in today's market too.

5.) 31 Jul 2017 18:00:20
Is that what it was dave? If so, a steal at that price TBH.



30 Jul 2017 13:06:54
Sounds like we are getting back the 'nemanja chant' lads.

I love that song!




21 Jul 2017 15:00:42
I see the aurier rumours now doing the rounds. They must have been reading the site lately! Bet you love it ed001 😂.




08 Jul 2017 09:34:14
Nice touch, video with lukaku telling pogba that he will see him in training tomorrow. Pogba started dancing.

It's going to be good to see those 2 play together. If their football co ordination is half as good as their dancing Co ordination, we are in for a lot of goals.


1.) 08 Jul 2017 10:54:03
Well I hope he puts as much effort into moving round the pitch, bullying defenders and working hard when jose tells him too otherwise he will be an expensive bench warmer, see how much he is dancing then.

2.) 08 Jul 2017 11:08:20
Took that long didn't it?

3.) 08 Jul 2017 11:57:41
Eric; he always scores goals.



04 Jul 2017 07:02:17
Ed001, why was ed Woodward at the lions game. Surely he knows he is not allowed to do anything until he signs 7 new shiny signings?

The cheek of him.


{Ed001's Note - he was looking for a new full back and forward that would fit in with the Jose style of play.....}

1.) 04 Jul 2017 07:42:50
I don't know what some fans want from Mr Woodward. The transfer window has been open only a few days and he has already signed Lindelof and Fabinho.

2.) 04 Jul 2017 08:02:42
lol ed. I'd stick Sean O'Brien in at DM. Not much would get by him!

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea who that is.}

3.) 04 Jul 2017 08:10:40
Not a rugby fan then ed?

{Ed001's Note - no mate, not in the slightest.}

4.) 04 Jul 2017 10:42:30

5.) 04 Jul 2017 11:33:21

Just JMB being JMB, we haven't signed Fabinho.

6.) 04 Jul 2017 12:04:48
Haven't we? I swear someone posted that it was all but complete.

7.) 04 Jul 2017 12:18:16
You posted this oh so hilarious post to try and mock someone yesterday Maze, nobody cares.

8.) 04 Jul 2017 12:35:09
Thats 3 times now Rollo. Nobody found it funny the first 2 times either.

9.) 04 Jul 2017 12:41:28
Thought I'd nodded off for a few weeks 😃.

10.) 04 Jul 2017 13:50:50
Betty who is being funny. I am bewildered at the lack of exposure over this so called done deal.

11.) 04 Jul 2017 14:21:27
oh Rollo, give it up now.

Unless you can find the quote of 'done deal'. haha.

You're right jred. They've been very hard to beat at home.

I was just extremely disappointed in the performance, but this is what Jose would have been happy with, the point at anfield. He will be assessing every single game, every single point and that was a good point. Just from a fan's perspective, a bad game.

Jose will have the whole picture in mind whereas we, as fans, looking for entertaining football don't have that overall picture.

He's in the starting 11?

I like him but don't think he is a jose player.

If I had to guess, I'd say Wenger will bite the bullet and spend the money to buy him. I think they have ran out of other options.

The other alternative is Roma who have been trying to buy him all summer.

The new mesut ozil. does he also go missing in a lot games?

Only going by what Jose said and the sharkopod I expect jose wants to sign more. But if he can't get his targets then we should go with what we have.

imo more than capable of winning the league.

Good post GDS, very level headed view of the present.

I enjoy reading the headlines. It reminds me of when fergie was in charge and there were many many negative headlines about this club. But yet we kept on winning.

We, United and Jose will never be perfect, not everyone/ fan will be happy with our performances in certain but there is no doubt that we are on track now and to use a boxing analogy, we will still be punching in the 12th round and will have our hand raised many times, which is what we have craved since fergie left.

Yes, a good player GDS, really hope he progresses and gets the chance to play in a number of games this season.

Jred. I don't think Leahy is saying gung ho at all. He is saying we should have went for it a bit more. Any time lukaku got the ball there was no one near him, that's not down to our forwards having a poor game, that's down to tactics full stop.

You said yourself, we played badly so it's not just Leahys opinion bit also yours.

At the end of the day it's a point at anfield. Jose and many fans will see that as job done.

We have been very good of late, great start to the season it was the manner of the performance that fans are not happy with and rightfully so. It was a pathetic performance from a team that has been playing well against a team that really hasn't been playing well, that's all.

That was a terrible performance by us. Truly embarrassing how we set up today and it was not good enough.

Very disappointed with that display against a team that have been very poor of late.


{Ed025's Note - i totally agree angel..

3-1 for me. Counter attacking showcase tomorrow IMO. I cannot see them being able to cope with out attacking line and with mane out I believe that they will not possess the capability to really hurt us.
