Anyone have any information on the pro posed stadium upgrade.

Reports saying we would have to ground share for 12 months while the work is getting done.

Only ground that would make sense would be the emptyhad.


{Ed002's Note - There is nothing decided, agreed or anything else at this time.}

Ok, thanks ed. ๐Ÿ–’.

2.) 12 Apr 2018 20:09:46
There's been talk of expansion for ten years. don't think it will be done anytime soon.

3.) 12 Apr 2018 23:09:51
Realistically from an engineering, logistc, timing and financial standpoint, the only other viable solution could be to build a new stadium!

4.) 13 Apr 2018 12:48:13
New Old Trafford Eric?

{Ed002's Note - There is no plan to build a new stadium. Just remodel one stand to increase capacity - the major difficulty is the position of the stand which likely means moving out whilst the work is undertaken. But this is all very early days.}

5.) 13 Apr 2018 23:02:19
Why not move if itโ€™s a more feasible and viable idea. Sentiment is long gone from football and OT does not resemble anything like it used to when I first started going!

6.) 14 Apr 2018 04:16:28

No, just no.

{Ed001's Note - why GDS2? Not arguing, just wondered why you would not want to move?}

7.) 14 Apr 2018 13:18:49
Because your home stadium is part of the fabric of the club. The sights, sounds and memories that it holds, are priceless. I know it's emotional nonsense, and it shouldn't logically make any real difference, but I totally agree with GDS.

Yesterday's win means we have beaten every team at least once this season.

Fact of the day there. ๐Ÿ˜.


1.) 09 Apr 2018 03:51:04
Maybe not quite so terrible after all.

2.) 09 Apr 2018 05:33:51
There would not have been such an uproar if we had won against Seville. We might have lost to a stronger team in the next round and the fans would have been happy with all the progress we made this season. Mourinho would not have come out with his rant and the media would have had less to gossip about our club. The loss in that game created such a negative atmosphere that no one could see any improvement in the team. But this City game has brought some calmness back, specially the way in which we won.

3.) 09 Apr 2018 06:14:25
Sailor to be fair is ManUtd supporters are spoilt and have such high expectations of our team (from glory days) so as long as we lose there will always be uproar ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ.
Itโ€™s not wrong or right but thatโ€™s the way it is. Until such time we start winning every any and every title this dissatisfaction will exist. Good in a way I feel. We should not be too easily contented given our history and financial might. We must wrestle the dominance back to English football from Europe side.



07 Apr 2018 19:26:56
Wtf just happened.

First half was an absolute disgrace.

Second half was like a different team. Different manager.

That's all we ask for. passion and fight and some attacking football.

Shame we haven't been like this all year.

I feel stupid posting at ht now.


1.) 07 Apr 2018 19:50:09
When ever we are aggressive and take charge of a game we play well and our talent shines. When we are passive and allow the opposition to play we look like a lower mid table team.

Pretty simple. And I am not convinced it is all Jose instruction, some of these players seem mentally fragile. Dropping back goal side feels safe. Like at the very least you weren't caught out of position.

First 15 mins and whole second half I thought we played well today. Lukaku had a mare. But the rest of the team turned up and earned some pride for the badge. Couldn't have asked for more.

2.) 07 Apr 2018 21:46:39
Sorry, i should add, Lukaku has been one of the stand outs this season. He's had a great first season but had a bad off day. I wish Jose had took him off for Rash.

{Ed004's Note - Yeah I was hoping Martial would come on for him}



04 Apr 2018 14:22:32
Rip ray Wilkins.




19 Mar 2018 14:00:50
rahter than asking who we want as next manager maybe we should be we should be asking since Jose took over have we made progression? have we improved since the days of the great one.

he took over a team in absolute dire need of some organisation, under LVG and Moyes we were a shambles at the back, we got beat easy on far to many occasions under the 2 previous managers before jose took over, we the position we finished on speaks for itself.

the fact the squad overall was not left in a great state, our leaders had left, the core spine of the team left, our so called superstars were coming to the end of there time, there peak years were gone.

YES the football at times this season, mainly the last few months has been dull and unattractive, but until we hit that tough few games the back of i think October where we drew a few in a row we were not playing that bad, we got injuries to pogba, bailly, players form dropped, surely the manager isn't at fault for that

thats not saying we could be better
but the table does not lie, we are clearly making progress under Jose, and with a few tweaks here and there and some luck with injuries we might have that team to be able to challenge,

in hind sight we haven't had a bad season, i think city's dominance has made everyone pannick like no tomorrow.

i keep seeing posts about how liverpool and spurs play this amazing football that's out of this world yet both sit below us as it stands.

this amazing football also has them on less wins that us and more draws.

SPURS have scored one more goal than us playing this amazing football yet sit 4 points behind and are still on less goal difference.

i for one don't see why most people are calling for his head, tbh i think its a bit embarrassing, were having our best season in 5 years,

were a miles better team since jose took over and i for one i'm glad his been given another contract,

if the players don't like what there being asked of the BOSS then just like any other job they can find a new one.


1.) 19 Mar 2018 14:30:22
No Bolger, you are wrong. You are on the wrong page. We cannot support the manager on this page. Its doom United on here. We need to sack him now. Then get Poch, sack him October because we are sure to be unhappy about something. Then get in god himself and give him the sack because he subbed off Shaw at half time.

2.) 19 Mar 2018 14:42:30
Good post bolger.

3.) 19 Mar 2018 15:01:11
Bolger, you make a good point. We are a better team now results wise than we were under LvG. And we play slightly better football.

If I was to rate the club under LvG, performance would be 1 out of 10, results would have been 5 out of 10.

Under Mourinho I would say performance 3 out of 10, results 7 out of ten.

So he has improved the team a bit. But there is far more scope for improvement. The question is if it's taken 300m to get the club to improve the small amount it has, how much more will it take to get the club where we want to be? Another 300m? 500m? 1b? And how many more years?

Mourinho tends to peak in his second year and implode in his third, that's next season.

The real questions should be how much more can Mourinho improve this team and how long will it take, and how much will it cost?

4.) 19 Mar 2018 15:55:03
Shan will you stop moaning
Everything is groovy
Jose is a breath of fresh air.

5.) 19 Mar 2018 16:04:18
i agree shappy that the performances haven't been consistent enough, but in brief spells we have seen what we can do.

i think what hasn't helped its what pep has done with city, there football this season has been different gravy.

we needed a lot of investment, our midfield was crying out for changes before moyes took over as was the defence.

players who we bought under fergie to replace the likes of rio, and vidic have not worked out.

its difficult to make an argument in regards to money, players who would have cost 30 million 10 years ago are now going for 60.

but nether the less we still need to strengthen in areas, we have a lot of young players, if we get the right balance and we can find that click I've no doubt we can over throw city.

im just not jumping on the whole jose out bandwagon, were having our best prem season in 5 years, in the fa cup semi. not a disaster of a season.

as much as a disappointment it was to lose against sevilla s**t happens that's football, city got beat against wigan its not the end of the world.

use never know jose mnight read this site and we might throw the kitchen sink at city when we play them, nothing else to lose.

6.) 19 Mar 2018 16:09:09
Sure Leahy. You got it. See you next season. Hopefully it will be a happy place by then. Cheers to a good ending to the season.

7.) 19 Mar 2018 16:13:50
Shan itsa happy place. somepeoplejust say what they see.
Keep posting my man.

8.) 19 Mar 2018 16:37:40
Bolger, you say we need a lot of players to be a strong team. Many people say a team is only as strong as its spine. Well Mourinho has brought in two CB's in Bailly and Lindelof, two midfielders in Matic and Pogba, and two strikers in Zlatan and Lukaku. As well as signing two wingers in Mkhitaryan and Sanchez. That's to add to players like DDG, Valencia, Shaw, Rashford and Martial. One of those is arguably the best goalkeeper in the world and two are previously world record fees paid for teenagers.

That is a lot of investment, and there are few areas Jose could argue he hasn't been able to improve with signings. Mostly the full back areas. Better full backs would improve us, but how much?

If we buy better full backs and the performance level doesn't dramatically improve then what area of the team could be described as an inherited weakness that Mourinho has to deal with?

Has Jose done an awful job? No he hasn't, but neither has he done a great job. That's why some people are starting to question him.

9.) 19 Mar 2018 17:27:03
bailly has been injured most of the season, lindelof is still adapting, zlatan has been injured all season and we swapped miki for sanchez. carrick jones all been injured.

we have no squad dept. were playing two wingers as full backs because the full backs we have are not good enough, martial is hit a miss as is rashford which is expected as they are young.

i agree that once the squad is complete the performances have to be that level where expecting but other teams around us are also going to improve.

money is irreverent, were assuming because a 20 year old cost 60 million he is the finished article.

although from pogbas social media activity he seems to have no clue about it.

ed would an agent offer a player around without first making him aware?


{Ed002's Note - perhaps, but Pogba knows what is happening.}

just shows how much an agent runs a players carer.

obviously pogba doesn't want to be here, so sell him if that is the case.


{Ed002's Note - it is rather more the norm than you think. It is nothing more than MU be8ng offered Bale.}

were on course for our best finish in 5 years.

I don't get the jose out.

We all complaining of stability yet want to get rid of another manager again. 3 managers in 5 years.

In my opinion you need 2 players in each position to challenge.

We have not yet seen the best of Sanchez and cannot just write him off because all season we have been inconsistant.

If martial doesn't want to stay and earn his right to play in the team then let him go. To be a world class professional you need the attitude to go along with the ability.

But the manager can't be blamed for under performing.

There comes a point where the player has to step up.

A player should be able to play in any position and perform to a standard.
