Couple of media outlets in France including L"equipe reporting today Aurier is going to Spurs .


1.) 15 Aug 2017 11:09:16
Don't think that's the worst thing in the World. Is not a very bright man, that comes across very arrogant and disruptive. Decent enough player, but that doesn't make up for the baggage he comes with.

Lucky for us I don't think it's an area we are truly desperate to sort out. I think Valencia will be first choice and despite his critics I do like Darmian and rb is his best position. You can't beat having an Italian defender when you need to defend.

2.) 15 Aug 2017 15:12:04
Bear, have to disagree there.

Aurier is not without his issues but I think Jose will know how to handle him. RB is an area we need to strengthen. Tony V has done a great job filling in but can't play 60 games a season there. Aurier is (allegedly) available for a decent price and is an upgrade on Darmian and Tuanzebe, possibly on Tony V, too.

3.) 15 Aug 2017 15:31:36
Ed002 said in recent sharkopod Aurier will likely join, doesn't see why he won't, he agreed to join Inter and Juve per reports too.

4.) 15 Aug 2017 15:31:44
All correct was agree in full.

5.) 15 Aug 2017 16:48:14
I wonder if peoples tune changes if he was coming to us:)

6.) 15 Aug 2017 17:46:07
Massive upgrade at right back for us, but also a massive tool. We shall see where ends up.

7.) 15 Aug 2017 20:08:23
I though the ed said it was a deal that could be done as the player was available .
Is he really a massive upgrade at RB?
Do people think Jose is going to drop Tony?

8.) 16 Aug 2017 08:25:01
Tony is 32 and has a niggling knee injury that may cause issues this season. I'd go all out and get him, and use Darmian / Shaw / maybe Blind at left back this season.

Don't get me wrong I'm a big fan him but he can't do it all season alone and our system relies on fit full backs overlapping.

We talk about youngsters a lot on here filling in but this season we need to go for the title. If they are good enough they'll get a game. If not, we will buy replacements.

9.) 16 Aug 2017 12:12:55
Eric but Tony will be first choice and play most the games do you think aurier would come to sit on the bench .
Or do you see Jose dropping Tony?



18 Jul 2017 19:31:35
Hard to imagine who we will turn to if we don't get Matic/ Dier/ Fabinho as all seem out of reach for one reason or another -

This is not a question for the EDs BTW -they have explained who are targets are (ED 02 in detail) just saying things can change in a heartbeat but the 3 mentioned plus Bakyako/ Naingoglan as options also out the picture now

Interesting few weeks ahead.


1.) 18 Jul 2017 19:50:51
I wonder if considering the situation with griezmann now if they wouldn't go back to trying saving in midfield.

2.) 18 Jul 2017 20:03:09
I don't think we will turn to anyone if his targets aren't available, panic buys like we did with fellaini is not the answer and I don't think it's a root Jose will go down here, Carrick will still give u a quality 20 games a season, Herrera can play that role although I prefer him pressing higher up at tempo, and hopefully pereira and TFM will prove to be valuable squad players if called upon.

3.) 18 Jul 2017 20:13:57
Hate us to go into panic mode as we did with Fellani - I think Jose isn't that way inclined, but I do think its a position that needs filling to get the best out of Pogba and Herrera - this coming season could be one of the most competitive for years so is it really the time to be relying on Pereira and TFM, although nothing would be sweeter than one of them being a success in the first team?

4.) 18 Jul 2017 21:19:58
Why is Matic no longer an option?

5.) 18 Jul 2017 21:20:16
Does anyone know if there's a possibility we could get griezmann in the January window? or to have any chance it'll have to be next summer? I know it will be difficult for AM to find cover in January, but could this have been arranged now, for a January deal to happen?

6.) 18 Jul 2017 21:44:22
Arsenal were playing some of their best football when cazorla was plaing in the middle dictating play. Mikki or mata could do a similar job. Not saying to do it just there are loads of other options already within the squad. So as people have said its better to get the target you want or wait till one is available.

7.) 18 Jul 2017 21:40:29

8.) 18 Jul 2017 23:00:08
Renato Sanches? Jose's did mention the name sanches where many assumed he was talking about Alexis Sanchez but may well have been Rebato Sanches or the other could be to push Phil Jones in to the midfield role.

9.) 18 Jul 2017 23:38:51
Don't fancy Phil Jones in midfield but Renato Sanches would be a great buy, he ran the show at the euros and isn't having any joy at Bayern. Bet they would let him go to.

10.) 19 Jul 2017 04:38:39
Fuser - apart from the excellent info here from the EDs, most of us I suspect look for info from the media and most outlets are saying Juve are in strongly for Matic, he is happy to go there and Chelsea don't want to sell to us . Conte seems a volatile sort I bet he wouldn't be too pleased if the board sold Matic to us .

Just my take on it.

11.) 19 Jul 2017 07:39:22
Juve don't seem to be willing to pay Matic's asking price though (around 40 million) . You guys just need to pay up the asking price and I'm sure Granovskaia will be very happy to sell to you ;-)

12.) 19 Jul 2017 11:12:36
The Matic deal will happen. Matic is already forcing Chelsea's hand saying that he want's to leave.
I expect the Matic deal to happen before the Perisic deal which is just getting silly now.
If Jose wants the player so badly then just pay the bloody money to Inter and get it done. I think we are all sick of it now.



14 Jul 2017 16:06:08
Just mentioning it as this is a rumour site and this particular one is possibly as daft as most -some Italian Journo saying Persic deal is dragging on as Inter want an unnamed UTD player included in any deal.

Apart from Fellani and Darmian (I am not a fan of either) I can't see who it could be unless they fancy Mata or Martial and are just taking a hopeful punt as its silly season.


1.) 14 Jul 2017 18:48:00
Darmian united offered but was cash that still wasn't enough apparently.

2.) 14 Jul 2017 19:05:18
no end of media outlets saying in last hour its MARTIAL -straight swap or swap +cash.



16 Jun 2017 10:46:20
I see us linked with Andre Gomes from Barcelona 30-40 mill in papers today, they apparently want to off load him as he hasn't fitted in .

Question: I remember lots of posters here saying we should have been in for him 18 months ago -i don't know much about him- do those same posters still want him, has his underwhelming season put you off . and who would he replace if he fits us? . i understand we can't buy everyone but as his name has come up today.


1.) 16 Jun 2017 12:13:00
In a heartbeat, cool on the ball and threads a great pass very Carrickesque.
The only query I would have about him is - How good is he at sitting and holding?
Not sure about that aspect of his game but this is the part we are lacking. At the price quoted (£30m-£40m) definitely seems to be worth a punt if he is available at all.

2.) 16 Jun 2017 12:29:42
i always readily admit I watch little european football, but I do remember some lads on here very annoyed we weren't in for him when it was obvious he was on the move last time.

3.) 16 Jun 2017 12:51:54
Didn't rate him much then. don't rate him much now.

4.) 16 Jun 2017 13:38:18
Every time i watched him for Barcelona he seemed more and more like a tom cleverley type player, lots of backwards and sideways passes, very little risk taking and not really brilliant defensively either.

5.) 16 Jun 2017 16:32:47
Would be my 227th choice. Don't rate him at all and the epl would not suit him at all imo.

6.) 16 Jun 2017 19:19:29
I agree with ken. I've seen him play on several occasions this season along side many of us I'm sure on both CL an La Liga. Hasn't impressed me at all.

7.) 17 Jun 2017 00:07:09
Another nonsense rumour as nothing is currently happening today on the transfer market. We only signed a player yesterday! I can't believe we haven't signed another within 24 hours.

8.) 17 Jun 2017 00:18:14
Pogba and Ander are far superior than him, don't see him being more than a squad player.

9.) 16 Jun 2017 23:48:07
We don't need him. We already have pogba and Ander in midfield to do the pretty stuff. We need a destroyer. A brick wall to shield the defence.

Someone mobile with a bit of pace and knows how to tackle.

10.) 17 Jun 2017 12:17:35
I think he would be a very shrewd signing!

His passing game is very good and definitely sit behind Pogs and Herrera allowing Pogba to play more advanced!

At 23 he will continuely get better!

11.) 17 Jun 2017 14:19:30
No thanks - a nothing player for me. Barely notice him and we have enough of those.

12.) 17 Jun 2017 16:59:10
Carrick was one of those players, don't hear much from him yet he made the team tick!

Barcelona aren't using Gomes in the right way in my opinion? I admit he looks dire in that Barça side, but use him correctly and he looks a worldie!

I'm sure José knows him well enough to use him more effectively? And he's only 23!



30 May 2017 08:50:14
Sorry to read Reus has done some knee ligament damage according to Dortmund and will be out for a lengthy spell.

The guy is 28 now, won his one and only medal at the weekend although he went off with this knee damage , has missed world cup and euros with injuries -ankle ligaments-

Looked a world class player on his day but I would say he will be one of the games "nearly men " now . Got a few quid in his pocket no doubt but I would say sadly he has peaked now and all the money in the world doesn't take that sting away.

Interesting to read this afternoon that Willian says his agent spoke to UTD and was obviously up for a move but Chelsea told him no way.

To me the guy is a notch below Sanchez, Bale, but on his day gets you off your seat . Football can be very simple, one guy dribbles past 2 players now you have 4-5 attackers v 2-3 defenders . always great to see and what Giggs, Ronaldo did for years.

But for me it is encouraging that JM went for that exciting fast, direct, dribbler a lot of crave at the club.


1.) 09 Aug 2017 20:51:38
I like Willian I think he is a decent player.

2.) 09 Aug 2017 22:11:56
Willian is incredibly hardworking. Would be a great singing and that missing piece of the jigsaw. But cannot see it happening.

3.) 09 Aug 2017 23:54:11
Wa hey. Hi Syd. Good to see ypu back fella. Actually i agree with ed 002 we will make at least one more signing. However i do think we saw last night (we were there) that we are massively outclassed compares to the days when we could expect to compete with the best in Europe. Its really simple. We need top quality players in each position with a stable consistent defence and midfield with competition in attack to ensure they take their chances every time or take a place on the bench. We need 3 full backs, 4 wingers and allow martial and rashford to move to beibg part of a 4 man striker group along with Lukaku and Ibra when fit again. Only then will we be complete. Lingard and mhiki aren't good enough, neither is smalling or darmian or blind. Aell up and build up or descend into mediocrity.

4.) 10 Aug 2017 07:00:18
You are writing Miki off after one season where he was a bit part player in a his first season?

5.) 10 Aug 2017 08:44:22
Willian loves Chelsea, mate. No way he wanted out like Matic :-)



09 Aug 2017 07:49:49
Watching the game it really all came down to pass and movement, and awareness. Luck never came into it as they passed around us first half and looked like the had an extra man on the pitch at times, with some lovely build up play which we didn't see much of from United, and we lumped it in the box a lot again sadly

Miki showed class, just not often enough.

Lindleof. not very convincing, hope he can raise his game quickly.

Darmian- an average player in a team that cannot carry average at the moment

Pogba, poor decision making time and again - needs to wake up a bit in possession

Lukaku - needs a bit more footballing brain, poor miss but confident to slot home a few minutes later

Hererra -possibly not fit?

Matic - looked very good

Rashford. scares defenders but again lacks composure . maybe overthinking things

Martial. deserved 30 minutes.


1.) 09 Aug 2017 11:39:52
If you are going to dissect the players like this, then stop giving golden boy Herrera a free pass. He was poor and Madrid ran rings around him.

Or recognise it is pre season and that Sunday is the kick off to the season.



07 Aug 2017 08:16:37
Anyone in or near the town of WILDWOOD New Jersey 08260 that can recommend a bar to watch the game v Leicester city 26th August please?

Rented a car for a few days while I do the Springsteen tour (his old haunts, homes. etc ) before going up to Manhattan on the Monday - I usually watch the games in "Slainte" down in the Bowery, Manhattan and can thoroughly recommend it but have no idea about Wildwood NJ unless I just pick a sports bar but personal recommendations are always best. Thanks in advance.




10 Jul 2017 10:14:46
Well well, one name dusted down from years gone by has emerged out of left field according to some tabloids today . Ezequil Garay - the all left foot, hard as nails big strong unit can leave Valencia for 18 mill and we are of course linked to him. Shocker to see he is only 30 .

Remember when he was always days away from signing for us like Gaitan and sneijder?




07 Jul 2017 10:46:57
Its a big if at them moment but if we get Lukaku and Matic that must make us one if not the biggest teams in the league physically.

That being said I hope we can find a corner taker or a good free kick taker, whenever a commentator says "utd have got a free kick in a dangerous area here"I tend to look in the crowd see who is shielding their face in row Z

Incidentally would love to see our CHs getting on the end of a few set pieces ala
Brucie/ Stam/ Rio . we all know what a difference 10 extra goals can make at the end of a season.


1.) 07 Jul 2017 12:12:44
Have seen Lukaku score freekicks.

2.) 07 Jul 2017 12:53:16
Lindelof has a fantastic free kick on him!

3.) 07 Jul 2017 12:50:54
Good post. A set piece specialist is definitely needed. You would think it wouldn't be difficult to put the ball in the box but somehow it is for us.
Lindelof is apparently a good at set pieces, but I'd prefer him to be in the box.

4.) 07 Jul 2017 13:35:57
Yes mad hatter, you see some lads can drop the ball on a sixpence throughout the league, we have some very gifted players but we seem to score very few from free kicks, or even cause many problems with them and our corner kicks must be some of the worst in the league

I saw lindelofs free kicks on you tube he does look handy -.

5.) 07 Jul 2017 15:34:40
Fabhino is better at taking free kicks than any of them. i'm still hoping we get him.

Got to say its time to move on. Felt really sorry he couldn't play in the Uefa final after all he did to get us there and what he did last season but to pay his wages again now seems daft but it would be a real slap in the teeth to Rashford and Martial now if they were edged out to accomodate him.

Dont forget these are big seasons now for Martial and Rashford, throw Ibra in and I think you won't see the best of those young lads.

never good enough for us, but can't knock his commitment and he did score a few important goals.

The length of his current contract and todays market means anything under 18 mill is a giveaway . maybe even 18 plus 2 in add ons.

Fair play to RM, not a club I like very much at all but Asensio, Isco have been allowed to develop when RM could easily have spent a kings ransom to replace them with shiny new signings and have 2 players now that they can build a team around just for starters.

Young was gone if he wasnt injured. I really don't think Darmian is consistent enough for a top 4 side and will go sooner rather than later . Blind is a strange one, reads the game well and is a decent hard working guy . but does he really have the managers total support? a decent offer and he could be a shock departure.

Fellani gone within 12 months, possibly Smalling in 12 months.

Lots of hard work too. Miki and Mata chasing back and winning the ball back got the crowd up, Rashford running the ball and Kolarov off the pitch in left back position after a 30 yard chase . and then the 90 seconds of 50/ 50 tackles won by Blind, Matic, Pogba and Jones in the first half when it got feisty for a few minutes . very very encouraging .

I wonder if a real leader might emerge now on the pitch, which would be fantastic in this new season/ era.

I think he is too inconsistent for a top team and how a proffesional footballer can't put a cross in to save his life is baffling - I still think he is on the market if we get better options he is gone, he maybe hasn't cottoned on yet . plus his Mrs never shuts up about going back to Italy.
