So redman, Glazers have granted you your wish. it seems we have contacted Arsenal for Sanchez - happy now?

common_sense moyes

1.) 11 Jan 2018 14:20:37
Has all the hallmarks of a Sanchez Snubs MUFC for MCFC headline for the papers.

Quickly followed by a load of think pieces/ columns about how this is another signal that man city are racing ahead of united in every conceivable area.

2.) 11 Jan 2018 14:24:48

Thought exactly the same mate, no excitement on this one from me unfortunately.

3.) 11 Jan 2018 14:49:53
I was wondering all the time. why we aren't in for him. than I said myself that may be he isn't get in well with Jose from Barcelona time. but if someone need him more than its us. he is deadly and very smart in final third. and works really hard for the team. I will take him on wings any day. anytime.
But even I guess he looks city bound.

4.) 11 Jan 2018 15:59:03
I'm sure I remember one of the Ed's saying he left Barcelona because of Messi.

5.) 11 Jan 2018 16:00:00
If it's agent spreading bs woody needs to do a briefing like he did when atletico ban news came before any agreement with city but if it is true I think we have a good chance of signing him, only thing city guarantee that we don't is a pl medal this season something we can clearly convince him to forego. We if actually go through with our rebuild well we should win a pl title in next 2 seasons and we would offer him guaranteed starting spot unlike city.

6.) 11 Jan 2018 16:48:21
I agree csm and he is the exact sort of player who should be wearing our number 7 shirt.

7.) 11 Jan 2018 16:48:59
I'm pretty sure when he went to Barcelona the papers were awash with either him or his dad being a United fan.

8.) 11 Jan 2018 17:12:40
I'm sure if we are showing an interest then there will be a level of reciprocal feeling from the player .

I'm not really sure why everyone is so certain he will end up at city.

If we got him it would be a great signing and likewise for city but I'm sure we are still an attractive proposition to any player.

9.) 11 Jan 2018 18:51:33
I think the funniest part of this story is a few papers adding liverpool to this saga imagine the options sanchez has, want a pl medal this season and lots of money pick city, want a chance at pl medal in future seasons and even more money pick utd, you want neither trophies nor money, well you know what is left on the table.

10.) 11 Jan 2018 20:46:58

It wasn’t actually Sanchez in particular, I was pointing out that we need to recruit at the top level, especially if our opposition are doing that. Sanchez is a top level player and if there is a deal for him then it could be good. We shall see if the manager thinks there is a fit in our team and more important if this is a real opportunity. We shall see.

11.) 12 Jan 2018 12:43:53
We have done that especially since Mou has signed up redman, matic, pogba, lukaku, failed attempt to get griezmann and there seems to be interest in signing dybala these are all top level talents we are trying to or have signed.



02 Jan 2018 10:29:06
Great performance yesterday, mourinho at last seems to have understood playing 3 in the middle is the way to go to get best out of pogba. But we need new fb's, lindelof isn't a fb and both young and Valencia are on the wrong side of 30, while shaw has a long way to go to be first choice.

A carrick replacement and may be Alex Sandro will get us a comfortable top 2-3 finish and hopefully a fa cup.

Zlatan has signed a 1 year contract with is, seems like he will be back much before expected.

common_sense moyes

1.) 24 Aug 2017 14:28:26
Cue the meltdown.

Good signing for me as long as he is happy to be a backup / rotation, and I love the Zlatan song, glad we have another year of it.

2.) 24 Aug 2017 14:37:23
I agree as long as he isn't starting every game it can only be good for the squad and will also help to keep lukaku on his toes.

3.) 24 Aug 2017 14:38:36
I agree GDS, as long as he is happy being 2nd choice behind Lukaku then we are fine.

Obviously having Rashford or Martial getting more time through the middle is good and beneficial for them but ultimately Jose doesn't play strikers like them as his number 9. It's always a target man so it's unlikely that even if we have good cup runs they would have got a huge amount of game time there. It took Zlatan to do his knee before either were played there with any consistency last season. Really hope to see them given a lot of game time on the left or right.

4.) 24 Aug 2017 15:43:56
Doubt anybody has a problem with him signing again. The problem will come when/ if reputation trumps performance.

Shrewd move and remember me and a few others getting slammed for suggesting this may well happen at the end of last season.

5.) 24 Aug 2017 16:09:32
Lol it's a good move as long as he does x y or z .
What if he doesn't do what you want tho?

If fit ibra starts we saw that last season.

6.) 24 Aug 2017 16:16:48
Poor move. Step backwards to our better style seen this year.

7.) 24 Aug 2017 16:36:12
Jred - I think it's fair to add caveats to saying it's a good move.

Good move so long as he is treated as an equal and judged solely on what he does on the pitch/ training ground, not what the media, agents, reputation and Zlatan's own ego demand.

If he is afforded preferential treatment then it's an awful move.

8.) 24 Aug 2017 16:48:56
Great move 😂😂😂😂😂.

9.) 24 Aug 2017 17:03:13
I just hope he is not our supposed 4 th signing. Or our other forwards don't fall out of favour to get zlatan in the team. But if scores goals like he did before his injury it can only be a good thing.

10.) 24 Aug 2017 17:06:26

Fully agree, and as we have just signed a 90m striker I imagine the striker we have signed on a free who has taken a pay cut will understand his role in the team has changed somewhat from last season.

I know stand has made his mind up but none of us know how he will play, all I do know is that lukaku can't play 65 games this season and if we hadn't won the first 2 games 4-0 nobody would be complaining as much.

11.) 24 Aug 2017 19:15:27
But we have won the first 2 games 4.0 and looked very good doing it.

12.) 24 Aug 2017 23:01:45
Gds I promise had we drew our first two games I would feel the same. I like Zlatan, I'll support him and sing his song, I just feel he is detrimental to the way we attack and would rather see Rashford or Martial down the middle when Lukaku isn't playing.

13.) 24 Aug 2017 23:37:01

I agree, that's my point, but we played West Ham and Swansea, I'm not getting carried away just yet but I know things are looking better.

Can't argue with your opinion stand, I respect it but don't fully agree with it as long as he isn't first choice. As a back up striker he will be fine. Imagine 2 years ago turning your nose up at our club signing zlatan ibrahimovic. The other players all seem to love him, what he does behind the scenes might not ever be quantified, but I am sure we can agree he has a positive effect.

14.) 25 Aug 2017 10:47:39
Good move. Our new number 10.

15.) 26 Aug 2017 03:01:45
Three at the back which he as already tried out and said wanted to play may suit use lukaku and ibra at top mykie behind pogba matic cm with 3 at back and shaw and toni wb would be class.



03 Aug 2017 16:24:38
Marca saying if mbappe is to arrive bale must leave, i really hope we are trying to get him.

common_sense moyes

1.) 03 Aug 2017 16:40:38
I would only want us to consider Bale if he was less than 50m. His injuries mean he would be far too much of a risk for more than that.

2.) 03 Aug 2017 17:32:36
Swansea want near about 50 million for Sigurdsson, you seriously believe we would get Bale at 50m in this inflated market?

3.) 03 Aug 2017 17:46:15
Shappy 50m 😂😂😂😂 he will sell for 80 to 90m i guess. i'd love him at united. Last season he only played 27 games he played over 40 for the previous 4 seasons so he is not a sick nite by any means. If we can sign him we should and he would be a great signing.

4.) 03 Aug 2017 17:55:58
One of the ed's has previously mentioned that there could be issues in his medicals.

5.) 03 Aug 2017 18:13:12
It would be a massive gamble given the fee they would want.

If his ankles are no longer made from weetabix I would take bale all day long.

6.) 03 Aug 2017 19:17:29
He's 28, and his game is based on pace. He has muscle and ankle issues. Even as a 21 year old in the EPL he used to have to wear strapping to stop him damaging his muscles. He has 2-3 years left at the top, how much of that he can stay fit for is the real question.

Bare in mind his wages will be in the region of 15m a year. On a four year deal that's another 60m in wages at least. Plus agents fees and the like the whole deal if we got him for 50m would likely cost us around 120-140m. For a player who will likely play 25-30 games a year at best over the next four years, while declining and many of those games he will be working himself back to fitness and form.

If we have to pay 90m then the cost of signing him will be closer to 200m. That's just madness for a player who's best days are behind him.

We got our fingers burned with Hargreaves. Let's not keep signing crocks. Especially ones for 90m.

7.) 03 Aug 2017 19:32:17
Again, costs are indifferent to me. I'm only really worried about signing a player that significantly helps us.

Undoubtedly on his day a pure world beater. But there have been many issues regarding his injuries and I believe one of the Eds have gone into more detail on that.

I just don't believe he will stay healthy.

8.) 03 Aug 2017 20:28:33
I'm with Shappy, it's a no from me. If he was as injury free as Ronaldo it would be a yes, but he isn't and would be a huge gamble at his age and with the way injuries have been going of late.

9.) 03 Aug 2017 20:54:01
For me I'd love Bale to sign. Like said before the previous three seasons he played 40 games + a season. Not to mention smashing goals in for fun. When he plays he's a game changer the likes we haven't got and I really don't see anyone else of that caliber who is available. Plus whether some of the fans want him or not he's the forward signing Woodwood has been dreaming since taking over. So I think if United think he's available Woodward will be off to Madrid to piggy back him back to OT so he doesn't go lame again falling off the plane.

10.) 04 Aug 2017 08:25:54

But according to reports (take them with truckloads of salt), Real want to part ways with Bale but Swansea know their future in PL is in the dark if Sigurdson leaves and want to thus hold onto him if possible so their values can't be compared. Also Siggy was fit for most of last season Bale not really and McGregor one said "you're only as good as yourthe last outing".

11.) 04 Aug 2017 09:52:39
Shappy I tend to agree with most of what you say especially regarding the injuries and his game being based around pace but surely a fit and in form Bale would transform us into major contenders for both domestic and European honours. I agree given the figures involved it would be a financial gamble for the Club but players of Bale's calibre don't come on the market that often and if we seriously want to get back competing at an elite level then it's a gamble worth taking in my opinion.

12.) 04 Aug 2017 10:22:58
Are people SERIOUSLY suggesting they wouldn't want to have Gareth Bale in our team because of prevous injuries and finance? Get a life.
He's one of the top 10 players in the world. In the time Perisic has played 152 games, Bale has played 150!

Bale will tear up every defence in the prem and will bring back the 'edge of the seat' excitement we've missed for years. If he can play in 30 games a season of our 60 then brilliant sign him up. JM will play him in the best 30 games.

As for the money, it's not like we can't afford him is it? If anything it'll attract more sponsorship and allow us to demand more money from existing sponsors on renewal.

Shappy you usually speak sense but bore off on this one you're wrong :)
Don't sign Bale, in what world would you not?

13.) 04 Aug 2017 12:11:35
Spot on shappy.

14.) 04 Aug 2017 12:46:00
Its a no from me as well. Wasn't there a report other day that he'd injured his Achilles?

15.) 04 Aug 2017 17:44:23
i can't see it happening this season but I don't see the harm with Bale in our team whether we sign him for £50m or £100m. if it was my own money it would be a different story. Jose continuously spoke about the influence Zlatan had on Rashford, Martial etc would Bale not be a similar influence to a player like Luke Shaw, Demetri Mitchell?

16.) 04 Aug 2017 23:04:22
Funny that angel you didn't say that the other week when i said what Dier will cost is relevant to todays market!

17.) 06 Aug 2017 13:06:31
Agree withs Shappy.

Ken check out the minutes in his last 2 seasons and 40 games is deceiving as he was being subbed in in many games with 15 to 20 minutes to go or subbed out in many that he was starting.

His game is suited for La Liga and Madrid more than the vigour of epl. Ronaldo and him hardly do any tracking back and are there to run in acres of space on the counter and the frankly the competition is La Liga outside the top 5 is quite poor and its mostly a question of how many goals the top teams can score.

He is very injury prone and will break down in the epl.



31 May 2017 14:40:37
Looks like the madrid journo was correct, Griezmann just confirmed that his agent has spoken with the club and he has spoken with his teammates, with everything now in the club president's hand. Over to you woody, get this deal done.

common_sense moyes

1.) 31 May 2017 15:09:57
He could have asked his agent to negotiate a new contract, informed his teammates of his intention to stay and left it with the club's president to draft. You never know.

He's clearly a media whore. Seems to be new quotes from him every few days.

8.) 31 May 2017 17:23:33
Titchmatt google it, these are griezmann's quotes. Stockport he just signed a new contract last year, transfer ban will have very little effect on this as he has 100mn clause, pay atletico the money and he is ours, atletico can't do much about it.

9.) 31 May 2017 18:04:39
Whole thing is already getting on my ample bosoms 😑 he seems he cannot keep his trap shut for 5 mins.

10.) 31 May 2017 18:13:38
CSM, I think the eds said before that release clauses for Spanish based players are only relevant if the buying club is based in Spain. We could offer £200m and Atletico could still say no.

{Ed004's Note - Those rules changed this year}

11.) 31 May 2017 20:02:22
Something tells me Greizmann likes the spotlight and would be quite happy for this saga to continue for the whole summer. Hunker down people.

12.) 31 May 2017 20:32:22
If we want him then offer the €100m and see if he signs on the dotted line. If not then he can piss off. Hate all the will he won't he bullsh*t. He has a buyout, or however it is worded, and they will want every Euro of that and rightly so. If we want him then it is straight forward, let's then see if he wants to come and put it to bed quickly.

City planned to sign him for free in the summer. Arsenal desperate for a sale now. I said I expected us to make an offer for both Sanchez and Oezil, but believed City would get Sanchez. I still believe this. Although be nice to see Sanchez as our number 7.

Just seen moshiri's comments about lukaku, is casual racism now allowed because the speaker isn't white.

1.) 10 Jan 2018 11:30:20
Genuine question. Which part was racist? I might not have read the whole thing.

2.) 10 Jan 2018 12:08:24
Nothing racist from what i read, he was just being honest i guess.

3.) 10 Jan 2018 12:41:18
Not sure its racism but to suggest Lukaus mum did some sort of Voodoo while she was in Africa and told him to leave for Chelsea is very very distasteful.

4.) 10 Jan 2018 12:58:34
"His agent went to Finch Farm to sign the contract. Then somehow during the meeting, Romelu called his mother and said she was on a pilgrimage to Africa and had seen some sort of voodoo that said he had to sign for Chelsea. " So because he is of african descent he apparently believes in voodoo and thus did not sign.

5.) 10 Jan 2018 13:54:49
From what i read the voodoo part was the genuine excuse given by lukaku to leave for chelsea. He is not right to mention it but i guess he was pissed off as he signed for us later.

6.) 10 Jan 2018 14:27:52
Is he not just explaining what happened. Bit of a reach in my eyes saying it was racism. Had he been white and his mother had seen a voodoo, what would you say that was?

I would have said his mother saw a voodoo? Doesn't matter the colour of someone.

7.) 10 Jan 2018 15:02:49
“Romelu’s decision had nothing to do with voodoo. He distances himself from these beliefs and this statement and will now see what judicial steps can be taken in relation to them. ”lukaku agent .

So our great manager doesn't think we have spent enough to compete under him and I agree, how dare we expect mourinho to beat mighty teams like Bristol city, Leicester city and Burnley after spending only 300mn that sort of a challenge clearly needs a few billion at least doesn't it.

common_sense moyes

1.) 26 Dec 2017 18:56:37
Common. In the same period, we sold a lot of players and city spent nearly double. If we want to compete, then we need to buy the best and they don't come cheap.
So far, apart from mkhytarian, his buying has been good.
We have a lot of average players and we spent a lot of money on the likes of fellaini Shaw Darmian Blind Rojo Schneiderlin schwinsteiger. So we need to sell the deadwood and buy decent talent.
We went through a period of under funding and that's catching up with us. So he's right.

2.) 26 Dec 2017 19:27:46
And you don't have to be a genius to see the so called talent underperforming week in week out.

3.) 26 Dec 2017 19:49:50
Over the last 3 year we have the third highest spend in world football.
Never mind beating city I think we have spent enough to beat Bristol Leicester and Burnley.

4.) 26 Dec 2017 19:58:57
Ddg bailly matic pogba jessie lukaku and for potential rash martial and lindelof are the only players that I think should be sure of a squad place next season .
Add Young and valencia to keep as 2nd choice right and left backs and Romero if we can hold onto him is a great 2nd choice keeper.

I think pep could have our current squad playing more attractive football BUT just like at city he would need a new cb 2 full backs a central midfield player and an attacking midfielder / wide player. He needed them at city and bought them some have worked others not and he adapted well with otimendi ( the 6th most expensive cb in the world) and delph filling in well at lb. Much easier to hide 1 or 2 squad players than it was last season when he had to play the likes of zabaletta kolorov dodgy keeper an aging yaya weekly.

Our current squad has had millions spent in it. Mostly not very wisely.
3 managers most of them have played umder some 4 or 2 and a few just 1.
Jones smalling rojo blind miki darmian shaw fellaini herrera and to a lesser extent mata ibra all regularly playing 25 plus games a season over last 5 seasons and they can't put a run of league games together without consistently drawing or losing games championship winning teams put together . All imo should be made available for transfer. i'd be delighted if those 10 were replaced with 5 really high quality players and the squad completed by tuanzabe Perriera mctom tfm gomes (in time)
Cb rb lb cm wide player imo are required for the 1st 11. All the above players i suggest are sold are decent people and good pros but they have failed to play consistently at a high enough level for multiple managers and some for 3 or 4 years.
Blind I could see playing cb for Barcelona or herrera and winning the lot same for miki at somewhere like inter. But it's not going to happen at united.

Yes jose inherited an expensive squad. But it was the worst performing squad in recent history. Full of average Joe's that don't work hard enough don't realise what it takes to win at the highest level.

He has brought 7 players to that squad
Ibra looks at the end and miki too for different reasons lindelof has been slow but improving and bailly mainly unavailable this season. So on what he inherited he has only had matic and lukaku and pogba half the time available to him. So it can be of no surprise that the players that have failed for years are continuing to fail.

5.) 26 Dec 2017 20:07:24
Excuses, excuses, excuses. Jred had it right. We have struggled against Bristol City, Leicester and. Burnley (at home) . A one-off I can understand but this is a trough.

6.) 26 Dec 2017 21:12:31
Ibra should never of started today, smalling should never of still been playing cb last game .
Pogba our star player really isn't doing anything special couldn't lace kdb boots .
Hard watching martial and rash while sterling looks world class.

Jose has already started blaming everyone else and throwing some players under the bus .
I've been a fan of Jose but the signs that the melt down is coming are there to see .
He needs to turn this around, couldn't do it at Chelsea when he had a squad that had just won the league and won it the following year 3 points above relegation .
Can he do it now? Some signs that jose and 1 or 2 of the players aren't happy .
And the first rumours also starting that the club aren't 100% behind Jose.
He maybe hasn't spent more than Chelsea but he has spent a hell of a lot more than everyone else . Leicester Bristol and Burnley included.

That was our chance to widen the gap to Chelsea and all but killing Liverpool and Arsenal's chance of catching us and we blew it, for once Mourinho can't be blamed for the result, we kept missing sitter after sitter.

Especially pissed at rashford and Smalling, 91st minute of the game with a 3 on 3 situation rashford cost us the game, I know Smalling was injured but why on earth then was he marking their biggest player sit out play in the mf don't try to be a hero.

I think this one is on Mou. If he hadnt gone "busparking", and kept Mata and Lingard on we would have scored eventually, and we would have had another sub for Smalling.

And why didn't he take Smalling off the pitch and get Matic back for Smallings position for the last couple of minutes? that's just bad match/ man management.

2.) 24 Dec 2017 07:33:26
he put mkhi on for Mata how is that bus parking, Smalling fiasco was players doing manager can't do much with 3 mins to go, that moment showed a clear lack of leaders on pitch, matic should have taken responsibility for that seeing the game out.

3.) 24 Dec 2017 07:58:03
There was no bus parking for God's sake it was open from beginning to end a really good game imo we were so so wasteful and we got punished simples

I'm as disappointed as anyone but can we not just see what happened rather than the constant digging.

4.) 24 Dec 2017 08:48:14
6 shots on target from 19 taken tells you why we didn't win this game. We should have been out of sight by the 94th minute.

The mix up for their equaliser was down to a lack of leadership on the field. Smalling should have communicated his lack of mobility better. Jones eventually realised and tried to re-jig the defence but Herrera wouldn't go to RB. No one wanted to take responsibility, and as a result Leicester had a chance and took it.

Forget who was on the touchline could you see that happening if one or two of Schmeichel, Vidic, Evra, Neville, Ferdinand, Bruce, Irwin or Keane was on the pitch?

Absolutely not. We lack leaders, we lack fighters.

5.) 24 Dec 2017 08:49:38
CSM- totally agree, a lack of leadership it was an error you wouldn't expect to see in Sunday morning football let alone the premiership. It's been mentioned on here by several people in the past about a lack of leaders in the team, yesterday highlighted the issue. Someone on the pitch needs to stand up, if they had, Smalling would have found himself stuck out wide no where near the defence.
All that said how many more times are we going to let teams of the hook missing chances, against WBA it almost cost us yesterday it did.

6.) 24 Dec 2017 08:59:34
Last 2 games and losses can be summarized by one thing. zero composure when we have clear scoring opportunities.

People here seem to get a hard on by blaming the manager but the subs are not defensive and players just not looking up to make a simple pass to a wide open teammate or just having some calmness and taking their clear scoring opportunity is on them.

I think Rash has been utter sh. t and he should be benched. He is super selfish and rarely looks to find a teammate in a better position. I know he is 20 but so what, the facts are the facts.

I said on group chat they are going to get mauled by jose after the game and given what he has said publicly i would imagine he has ripped their spoiled asses in private. Expect a very different performance next game.

Time to sell a few in jan for sure and bring in a couple, that always gets the message across very clearly.

7.) 24 Dec 2017 09:23:59
xfiles i thought i was the only one thinking that about rashford, since he has been benched for martial in the last few games he seems to want to do nothing but try and score and it is having a bad impact on the team.

8.) 24 Dec 2017 09:47:05

Martial is a much better player and has a lot more dimensions to his game and also always looks to pass to a teammate in a better position. Rash is very one dimensional head down and run.

He also has free reign brought in towards the end of games when there is tons of space for him to run into. He is super selfish and Lukaku must be exasperated given the last 2 games and how a simple pass will have him probably score and being ignored.

Not sure what he was thinking when 2 on 2 with lukaku making a run and he just stopped and pulled it back. The last 2 games is all on them and not the manager imo. You can lead a horse to water but you can't force them to drink as they say.

What Jose said was spot on and about time. BTW Fergie also did a lot of that so don't know where people are getting this stuff from that Fergie never said anything in public. Personally saw him rip them after games saying their performance was unacceptable and it will be sorted. usually meant major changes to line up and certain players being in the dog house.

9.) 24 Dec 2017 09:48:59
‘Bus parking’ is he new buzz Work though lads, even though the game was end to end and we could have won 6-1 we parked the bus because we made a sub.

10.) 24 Dec 2017 10:02:04

People talking nonsense imo. I watch the other teams too and we have more opportunities (except city) . We have so many chances but so so poor in our finishing and decision making and its the players. Its fashionable to blame Jose though. Yesterday should have been 5-1 or 6-1 and and a no contest and people would be praising and gushing about our attacking style.

The reality is we have lots of games in the festive period and you need some calmn, tough seasoned players who can handle the stress both physically and mentally and this group is very new, young and not coping with it well.

What is driving me crazy watching them at the moment is lack of composure and calmness when defending or attacking.

11.) 24 Dec 2017 20:38:43
Rashford is a centre forward not a winger Jose changed he s position and he has gone backward since so who s to blame.

12.) 24 Dec 2017 21:29:54
I may have been a bit rash on my words, but i was still a bit moody from the game. I didn't exactly mean parking the bus, but we seem to lose our momentum when Lingard and Mata was subed. I think if they had stayed on, we would have eventually scored.

I have a thing of writing in anger and it seldom comes out great. 😁

Merry Christmas guys!

Dan balague also said ddg will join madrid, pogba will go to madrid, lukaku will be a Chelsea player. The man has no clue and knows little other than worshipping guardiola and praising Barcelona and madrid. He thinks only reason to choose utd ahead of city is money, i wonder what he thinks city will pay him in on weekly basis blessings from their brazilian striker?

We have done that especially since Mou has signed up redman, matic, pogba, lukaku, failed attempt to get griezmann and there seems to be interest in signing dybala these are all top level talents we are trying to or have signed.

I think the funniest part of this story is a few papers adding liverpool to this saga imagine the options sanchez has, want a pl medal this season and lots of money pick city, want a chance at pl medal in future seasons and even more money pick utd, you want neither trophies nor money, well you know what is left on the table.

"I am not Jose's biggest fan", unless you are a completely different redman to one who normally posts here or I am suddenly in some comic book alternate dimension this is LoL worthy. Every match chat people including me are justly and sometimes unjustly criticizing mourinho and you are there defending him at every turn and blaming everyone else, though normally it's fergie and Glazer's fault.

I agree the football under SAF in his last years wasn't that good but no one is saying it was, nor is anyone asking for breathtaking football, is expecting a manager who has spent 300 mn to maybe show some balls and attack teams like Huddersfield expecting too much.

We park the bus routinely whether the opponent is Man City or Sevilla, what's worse is even the bus parking is poor as it is normally ddg who makes sure we don't concede not our defense. You talk about SAF's football but please show me a game in SAF's 25+ years where we were as negative as we were against City away last season or Liverpool away this season.

How many millions does Jose needs to spend before we say enough? You say this isn't FIFA yet he has spent money like it is, but when fans expect football half as good we are arrogant.

Even the money he has spent looks not so great, Pogba has been average until now and mourinho seems to have fallen out with him now to make matters worse. The 500k man has performed worse than martial was in his position and now there are reports that martial wants to leave because he doesn't seem to think mourinho trusts him. The Everton player we spent big money on is performing at the Everton level, playing well against bottom table rubbish but put a half decent team against him and he goes into a shell dragging utd with him. Matic looks bang average after a god start, mkhi was a failure and lindelof will join him on that list unless there is dramatic improvement.

But hey let's all trust Mourinho. So what if you were pitching a fit since the day Moyes was announced without giving him even a day to prove himself, heck you moaned about a 4-1 win in his opening weekend. But people point out actual faults that mourinho has they are arrogant and playing FIFA.

Are people being serious about martial being poor? He has scored and assisted more than the 500k man we have bought, but who cares about actual real facts. Let's sell him and pogba and rashford too while we are at it, what we need is more 30 year olds and 35 year olds.

jred it isn't hyperbole, we are 2nd because chelsea and liverpool had a poor start to the season. We had 23 points from first 10 games, the next 17 have got us 33, our play especially since christmas has seen us go from easily 2nd to top 4 dog fight.

If all teams continue their form we might genuinely not even be in top 4, A loss against chelsea will see level on points with Chelsa who are 4th and given who liverpool and tottenham are facing we could be 1 point above 5th. Such a wonderful season it has been after spending 300mn.
