Big worry if Dave the Save is now reluctant to sign a new contract as is widely reported - can only think PSG would be viable destination today.


1.) 08 Oct 2018 17:54:35
Real Madrid could still be a serious option. Navas isn't getting any younger and Coutois hasn't been great since the move. They could easily go back in for DDG either on a free or below his true worth when he only has a year left on his contact.

2.) 09 Oct 2018 08:42:24
Why would DDG sign a new contract?
We don't know where we are going.

He will be a huge loss if he leaves. But the way things are, I don't see any top player staying if given a chance to leave!

3.) 09 Oct 2018 09:45:13
Don’t see where DDG goes, Real are ok, Barcelona too, maybe Bayern or PSG but less competitive leagues, anywhere else even if we aren’t on top atm is a backward step.

4.) 09 Oct 2018 10:34:36
If he left who could blame him?
Probably the best keeper in world football for about 6 seasons now and what’s he got to show for it
If he’d got his move to Real Madrid he’d have a couple of CL winners medals in his back pocket . The way things look for us it’s hard to see us seriously challenging for league or CL for a couple of seasons at the very least.

5.) 09 Oct 2018 14:54:01
Juventus have Szczesny in goal. I appreciate he misses Spain, but that screams out at me.

Ultimately he has been a great player for us, not one of our fans should have any hard feelings if he leaves. He signed for a great club, he now plays for a club I barely recognise.

Wouldn't mind a little swapsy with Athletico for Oblak.

6.) 10 Oct 2018 19:41:05
As I understand it the contract is almost done, but he wants a clause that states he won't ever be used as a center back.



04 Aug 2018 20:56:27
Several reports saying TFM going out on loan to Hertha Berlin.


1.) 04 Aug 2018 21:28:55
Would be a shame as would have like to have seen him get more minutes. Especially with Valencia out and Dalot an unknown quantity. Hope this doesn’t mean darmian won’t be moved on. Guess we will have to wait and see how this pans out.

2.) 04 Aug 2018 22:11:30
Surely means a Darmian is staying now. The Italian international could be a revelation in a 3-5-2, or indeed at right back used properly.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

3.) 04 Aug 2018 22:24:11
Intersting Ed. Darmian def leaving then.

Very, very busy time coming up with ins and outs.

4.) 05 Aug 2018 04:08:03
Tfm will benefit from that i hope he plays in his more natural position. Periera looks a better player following n his ex perience should have sent martial on loan last season we could have got back a much more rounded player.

5.) 05 Aug 2018 07:40:55
With darmian likely leaving and dalot and valencia injured i'm guessing we'll have to play tuanzebe lindeloff at right back?

6.) 05 Aug 2018 07:41:40
Darmian will go to Italy so there is still plenty of time to shift him out as the deadline only changed in the prem.

We may use him the first couple of games whilst we wait on Valencia and Dalot and then sell him.

7.) 05 Aug 2018 07:59:40
If a LB is signed, then we may even see Young shifted to the right with Shaw and the new LB on the left. Final few days may be exciting and nerve wrecking. Checking the sites every 15-20 mins.

8.) 05 Aug 2018 09:22:37
We have Valencia and Dalot, Jones, Bailly, Lindelof, new signing, Shaw and Young, enough to cover any formation without Darmian. Presuming Smalling and Rojo leave that is aswell.

9.) 05 Aug 2018 15:39:02
Personally I’d keep Smalling and sell rojo and add Toby. Job done at centre half.

Still think we need a real left back more than a right forward if we are to make another purchase.

If Pogba leaves we will most definitely need to replace him too.



13 May 2018 14:16:43
Whats all this about Martial . with the squad at 12,00 today, then drove off apparently . not in squad at all now. Toys out the pram? genuine reason for leaving? interesting.


1.) 13 May 2018 14:41:06
He is injured.

2.) 13 May 2018 14:43:24
MUTV saying it's an injury.

3.) 13 May 2018 15:55:12
Carricks last game, last game of the season and he is not in the stands, not going to be on the pitch with the others at the end of the season? Cannot see it as an injury myself.

4.) 13 May 2018 16:31:59
If he's thrown a strop he can go. Sick of time wasters and bottle jobs.

5.) 13 May 2018 17:04:23
Wasn't pictured at training Friday didn't arrive with the squad today .
Or so it was reported.

6.) 13 May 2018 18:05:09
Rumours his missus went into labour.

7.) 13 May 2018 18:18:29
If he was injured he’s at his own stadium, doubt it was that urgent he couldn’t be with the squad.

8.) 13 May 2018 19:26:43
I m making a wild guess that Jose want Justine Klubeirt and so he is driving Martial Out. he is making sure things stay in a way that he surely leaves.
Now I m not saying what type of decision it could be.
But just a guess.

9.) 14 May 2018 13:56:18
Is that Justin's sister?

10.) 14 May 2018 17:51:38
GDS, it's the name he goes by every other Saturday night in that club you love in Amsterdam. Lol.

11.) 14 May 2018 18:19:01
He’s not good enough to acting like a diva. bring in Bale and flog him if he’s playing up.

I’d love to see him work out, but under Jose it’s just not going to happen for him and not sure he has the fight to play for us. Shame.

12.) 15 May 2018 23:59:44
Martial needs to move on for the benefit of his career. Another expensive Depay. Loads of hype. Again don't think he a talented as people make him out. I see a guy that's pretty inconsistent.



20 Jan 2018 22:51:23
Back page of "the sun" journo called Nixon writing that Wenger asked about Luke Shaw during Sanchez negotiations and was told no way.




15 Aug 2017 10:22:21
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?

The last 2-3 games I've watched on TV the cameras always linger on Patrice Evra sitting chatting with Ed Woodward next to him. Never noticed those 2 being so friendly up until recently- any theories why they are so matey now?


1.) 21 Oct 2018 16:50:49
Woodward always had feelings for Pat but felt he could never reveal them whilst Pat was a player. Now he has left Woody is free to declare his love and I for one am hopeful they will be happy together and live happily ever after.

2.) 21 Oct 2018 17:00:36
Evra and Zidane dream team innit.

3.) 21 Oct 2018 17:35:05
Talking about hair transplants and martial arts 😆😆.



03 Oct 2018 18:13:42
If its true that the players aren't playing for Jose I could understand it as he has obviously fallen out with so many- not that I condone it of course.

But where does that leave Carrick and McKenna who are by all accounts popular with the players, they work day to day with them wouldn't the players think they owe Carrick and McKenna good perfomances as Jose would be gone at end of season anyway probably?




09 Sep 2018 07:53:36
I had not read this little snippet anywhere else before now re Pogba - Daniel Taylor writes a piece in yesterdays guardian asking if Pogba will always have a wanderlust and to keep moving on.

He writes 2 years after leaving Utd although winning trophies at Juve he made it known he would consider moving back to UTD (65 MILL) Moyes was interested but had doubts why having played at 2 of the worlds biggest clubs he couldn't settle. and so didn't pursue it.

How true any of it who knows.


1.) 09 Sep 2018 09:24:44
Yes apparently moyes was worried about his lack of loyalty as he has been at so many clubs but if you think about it he's only been at la havre, manchester united and juventus.

He is hardly jumping from club to club every season.



05 Sep 2018 16:34:49
John Terry - out of contract. What are peoples thoughts on giving him a contract til the end of the season strictly as a defensive coach? You cannot deny he knew how to defend and how to organise a defense . So, not registering him as a player let's be clear on that .


1.) 05 Sep 2018 17:26:57
A good players not necessarily a good coach. It wouldn’t surprise me though as it would draw attention towards the club and we know Ed Woodward’s good at that side of the job.

2.) 05 Sep 2018 18:38:40
Personally thought he had terrible positional sense but had a good bit of pace to make up for it.

3.) 05 Sep 2018 19:09:28
Better off asking Rio or Nev to sort defence out. 😆😆.

4.) 05 Sep 2018 19:40:42
Thought I’d sent this earlier but HELL NO. Keep him away please. Horrible person.

5.) 05 Sep 2018 20:32:34
Never. The only way he should be getting that stadium now is as a paying customer either match day or museum tour.

6.) 06 Sep 2018 03:06:12
As a person, he's marmite, BUT, when he went to villa 99% didn't want him, but fair play to him, he got the defence organized, improved the attitude of the players and got them playing for the jersey rather than trundling along, he also brought a calmness and reassurance as well both on and off the pitch, and not to be ignored was how he helped the younger players realise being a professional footballer is a privilege not an entitlement, so yeah, he could do a job at united but it would never happen i reckon because of his love for chavski and the history with united.

7.) 06 Sep 2018 08:17:53
Hire John Terry?

Won't someone please think of the WAGS?!

8.) 06 Sep 2018 10:03:05
John Terry with terrible positional sense and pace to make up for it? I think you've got the wrong player mate. JT was one of the best at reading the game and was never blessed with pace. He wouldn't go near your club anyway even with Jose there.

9.) 06 Sep 2018 10:12:54
Classof82, are you sure John Terry did all of that? You don't think the manager and coaching staff had anything to do with improving the abilities of the players they had?

I haven't read or heard of Terry ever being a good coach.

As we have seen with many top footballers they struggle when it comes to management/ coaching.

How do you teach someone something that came naturally to you? If you never had to learn the skills then how do you show someone how you learned them?

Generally the less able players make better coaches/ managers as they had to work harder at getting to the required level. So they have more scope to teach others.

If we want to bring in a former player to coach then I would look to one of our own first. They know what it means to play for our club. Also John Terry is an awful human being. We don't need a member of our coaching staff teaching our players how to racially abuse their opponents and sleep with their team mates wives.

10.) 06 Sep 2018 10:30:48
Amazed Villa haven’t re-signed him for another season. Time for JT to head to the US I’d say.

11.) 06 Sep 2018 18:24:31
Might make the players more hungry if they thought he might get near their wives?

12.) 07 Sep 2018 00:03:23
Terry had awful positional sense an reading of the game. Another overrated because he was English and had "passion" and threw himself around like a headless chicken. 2nd most overrated English player of the prem era.

13.) 07 Sep 2018 00:20:22
Shappy-if you asked any villa player if they'd take terry back, they'd bit your hand off for him, on a footballing level, i hate to say it, he'll make a brilliant manager, and that you can take to the bank.



01 Aug 2018 12:13:18
Seems Martial is getting fined for not turning up for training at Carrington. Only one way this is going to turn out now, terrible shame if this lad doesn't make the most of his talents somewhere, but I can see his career going the shape of the pear.


1.) 01 Aug 2018 12:31:16
Very unprofessional of him.

2.) 01 Aug 2018 12:36:12
All his own fault. Too fond of sulking rather than working.

3.) 01 Aug 2018 13:13:58
Has he actually been fined? All i can find is speculation of a possibility of a fine.

4.) 01 Aug 2018 13:15:07
He is clearly talented but seems to have a questionable attitude (putting it kindly) . The price paid at the time seemed a risk and the fact nobody seems to want to buy him suggests his reputation goes before him. Either that or we are asking silly money, but then everyone seems to be doing that nowadays.

5.) 01 Aug 2018 13:29:18
If it's true then it's a terrible shame. He might not be happy and he might want to leave, but there is the right way and the wrong way about exiting a club.

Tony, apparently there is loads of interest, Barcelona, Juventus, Real Madrid, Bayern, PSG, Chelsea and Spurs have shown varying levels of interest. However, we aren't interested in selling unless it's for a fee north of 70m. Which is what is putting teams off.

6.) 01 Aug 2018 13:46:03
Not sure there is much interest. Tabloids linked a few clubs with him but no offers.
Same tabloids that you say not to believe when they link uz with every player. Do we only believe the tabloids and click bait on out going players?

7.) 01 Aug 2018 14:10:33
Ken, Ed002 has said several teams are interested but not at the price we keep quoting.

8.) 01 Aug 2018 14:24:49
The sooner he is gone the better for all concerned if he is not acting professionally.

9.) 01 Aug 2018 14:48:20
Tevez, Balotelli, and now Martial all quality but . 😆😆.

10.) 01 Aug 2018 14:49:28
If this is true then get rid of him. He isn't anything special from what i have seen of him so far. One great goal against liverpool was the highlight of his career at our club.

11.) 01 Aug 2018 14:50:20
Shame to see him leave but I hope he goes on to show his undoubted talent elsewhere.

12.) 01 Aug 2018 14:54:47
It was a great goal though Singh.

13.) 01 Aug 2018 15:45:54
it was a brilliant goal but the man himself is a little baby . He thinks he plays for free and is acting like a little child. Get rid of him we won't miss too much when he goes.

Id say get rid of Pogba as well if he doesn't want to be here. We need to move on from these two players and buy players that are willing to fight for the spot and manager.

14.) 01 Aug 2018 15:54:50
I do agree Singh on martial. His attitude is a major concern and no point keeping someone who doesn’t want to be here. Pogba on the other hand I would be gutted to see go. I know he wants out and the club and manager are happy to facilitate it should the right offer come, I worry we will regret it. He will become the best midfielder in the world imo.

15.) 01 Aug 2018 16:47:06

Th3re are a lot motr midfielders then Pogba out there. Juet look at Savic and Verrati. If a player doesn't want to play just get rid of him . It is not the end of the world, players will come and go.

16.) 01 Aug 2018 17:28:57
To much reported and said during this Saga since long. he is a fan favourite because of his direct comparison with The great Thiery Hanrey, and his goal vs Liverpool. He has done well in his first season as CF but after he have been moved to wings, he started suffering. mostly the reason being lack of support from wing backs. So mentally this has stuck kids mind heavily and with over frustration he has lost it. Now in present scenario he doesn't see United playing according to his suitable style he is getting wasted on bench as result. So he has made up his mind to leave. And at this stage, he should leave as well and make something of his career.

17.) 01 Aug 2018 17:50:51
Absolutely nothing confirmed but the haters are out in force getting excited over a bit of click bait .

Support the team . Man United not Jose United.

18.) 01 Aug 2018 19:36:04
Never seen what the big fuss about Martial is. If anything, he’s blocking the path for more committed young players in the youth set ups who actually want to be at the club.

If we get just north of what we paid for him then we will be doing well.

lets face it, IF the Glazers ever sold up and that's a big if who has got 3 or 4 billion to spend on an investment/ hobby/ rich mans toy? its only ever going to be one of the oil rich countries, or a Russian shady character or a Chinese faceless conglomerate . hardly a great choice is it?

yes that was the report yesterday afternoon in a few tabloids .2 squad players from Barcelona plus not enough money to buy Toby/ Boateng (thank god) for Paul Pogba . whose agent said when we signed hm was a 150 mill player.

Dembele got to be in the mix if that's the next club for PP.

If its the same report (s) I've seen today as the Pogba speculation goes in to overdrive is that Barcelona would be offering Gomes and Yerri Mina in the deal which is very uninspiring.

A Pjanic + Sandro might soften the blow -not as easy as that of course .

All very well but a run in a losing toxic team can be devastating for a young player. Gomes and Chong in an FA cup game here and there makes sense dependent on oppposition- Greenwood looks like he knows where the net is . a great trait for any forward, usually sticks with them through their career. you either have it or you dont.

I would say the average supporter has no clue what goes on at the club, or how difficult it is to get players in.

You only have to look at the press who don't seem to know what the real targets are.

In a big club run like a corporate global business who really has the power?

Plus how many managers last 5 years at a club so how far do you back them, how many players want to stay 5 years, who wants to go north of London if they choose UK.

Its not black and white.
