Ed002 are we interested in Thomas partey? Would be a good matic replacement.

common_sense moyes

{Ed002's Note - This was raised a few months ago and it was clear MU had made no approach to AM and in response to an interested club that did approach them it was noted he would not be sold. As far as I recall it was the Ghana coach who raised the MU issue when being interviewed about the cancelled national games in October or November.}

1.) 02 Apr 2019 13:47:32
Thanks ed, who are we targeting as matic replacement?

{Ed002's Note - The club are not looking to replace Matic at this time and have Scott McTominay if required. There are other priorities.}

2.) 02 Apr 2019 15:32:12
Cheers for the Info Ed.

3.) 02 Apr 2019 16:28:40
Thanks ed02, that is really disappointing news.

4.) 02 Apr 2019 22:22:55
Other priorities being that our other first two centre mids are leaving. going to be a long summer for united fans, but stick with ole and the boys.



21 Dec 2018 14:32:40
Ed002 are utd interested in Lucas Hernandez.

common_sense moyes

{Ed002's Note - There was interest in Lucas Hernandez from Mr Mourinho but I would expect interest will have gone with Shaw agreeing a new contract. Atletico will look to hang on to the player and have him sign a new contract but they have been using him as a CB instead of his preferred LB position where Filipe Luis has been playing. Atletico asked too high a price for Filipe in the summer and at his age it killed the chance of a move. With his contract running down he will be allowed to move on and Atletico will attempt to fend off interest from Bayern Munich by adding a CB as soon as they can, possibly January if they can persuade the player they want to make the move and then Hernandez can return to his preferred role.}

1.) 21 Dec 2018 17:09:20
Thanks for the info, we should be trying to sign him, shaw still seems injury prone, not to mention his form he seems to have gone back to being poor since he signed his contract.



12 May 2018 14:35:34
There are rumors that rui faria is leaving, Eds, other posters anyone hear anything about this?

common_sense moyes

1.) 12 May 2018 16:57:47
Posted something similar CSM. Very interesting news and potentially the shake up that Jose's back room staff needs. Apparently its not carrick taking the no. 2 role but that he will just be part of the back room staff. There was murmurs that Faria was linked to the Arsenal job but he does not seem to be on their shortlist. I think Jose needs someone to come in and bring some fresh ideas and a new approach to this team. Quite exciting if this is true.

2.) 12 May 2018 18:20:15
How about klopps number 2 if he is indeed leaving Liverpool.

3.) 12 May 2018 18:24:08
Official on the website (utd website)

{Ed004's Note - Rumours are that the U18 coach McKenna will become assistant manager}

4.) 12 May 2018 18:47:53
Its all official and all seems very amicable- he is ready for a new challenge as his own man somewhere.

I think one of the pundits hit it on the head a few weeks ago, Jose is in a time warp, what worked for him 10 years ago doesn't work now .

SAF always bought in new coaches, kept it fresh, I really hope a new man comes in not just a yes man bit someone with ideas who wants to play attacking, attractive football with wingers, attacking full backs who doesn't think a 1-0 lead at home with 20 mins to go is time to shut up shop.

5.) 12 May 2018 18:57:11
Ed004, I have watched U18 2/ 3 times, they are playing good football. I think he would be good appointment.

{Ed004's Note - That's very good to read. Hopefully that is the case next season. Hoping we push 10 yards further forward and play a more attacking style of football}

6.) 12 May 2018 19:31:18
McKenna would be a very good appointment Ed004, knows the club well, excellent job this season in the u18's, play very good football at times, supposedly did a good job at Spurs aswell. Hopefully we might see Gomes and Chong get some playing time next season (good enough=old enough lol)

{Ed004's Note - Id settle for more attacking football and more entertainment}

7.) 12 May 2018 19:57:18
Lets hope a stronger defence helps us play more attacking next season🤞🏻.

8.) 12 May 2018 22:15:06
McKenna according to rumours with Carrick as number 3.

9.) 12 May 2018 22:51:14
Do you think a different number 2 will have any input into changing Mourinhos style after all this time. Especially someone who he has not known for long, I am not sure i see mourinho taking tactical input from anyone let alone someone who relatively barely knows.

10.) 13 May 2018 08:42:11
Anyone know who's going to be number 4?

11.) 13 May 2018 11:11:40
MancMan. I heard Fellaini.

12.) 14 May 2018 10:12:44
"Speaking after the win over Watford, Mourinho said he would not have an assistant next season as "nobody in the world of football is ready".

"I think it will be Michael Carrick in future, when he has his badges, " he said. "When he has his pro licence, when he makes the bridge from player to assistant.

"I got to Michael in the last part of his career and it was enough to fall in love with the player and person. ""

Hope this isn't true, a Mourinho dictatorship is the last thing we need.

13.) 15 May 2018 03:20:01
I for 1 am hopeful that Carrick grows into this job. By all accounts the players look up to him, respect him as a leader (as they should) . He understands this team, understands the players, understands and loves United. He has a lot of potential. We just need to see if he has the appetite and aptitude now. I really hope so.



11 Jan 2018 12:43:41
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.

So Hazard gone, Chelsea have a transfer ban. Arsenal are being usual cheapskates, Tottenham will most likely lose eriksen. If we can't strengthen and finish top 4 next season there is no hope for this club.

common_sense moyes

1.) 06 Jun 2019 15:31:40
I think this is a great thing for Chelsea (both the ban and losing Hazard) .

Short term they will suffer and we have to capitalise on that, but they will be much stronger for it in two years time as they give game time to a number of promising youngsters.

2.) 06 Jun 2019 15:56:10
88 million in todays market is a bargain.

3.) 06 Jun 2019 17:34:15
Bargain? Not sure about that. 28 years old and only has a year left on his contact.

Great player, but has been know to go missing in big games. Will be interesting to see how he does at Real Madrid.

4.) 06 Jun 2019 19:47:33
Hazard is an amazing player and he doesn't go missing in big games it is just that he had 2 or 3 players amrking him in big games because there is only one superstar in that chelsea team.

In Madrid there will be a few players on his level sooner or later and he would have a lot more space to create damage.

I am glad he got his move as he should be playing in a team challenging on all fronts.

5.) 06 Jun 2019 22:25:57
Singh, Messi has 2 or 3 marking him every game. As does Ronaldo. Just as Zidane, Figo, Del Peiro, Totti etc etc.

The great players always get doubled up on, the best players over come that and have great performances anyway.

6.) 07 Jun 2019 08:35:17
And Eden has some exactly that, Shappy. He's a true world class player and has carried us for years. Was easily the best player in the PL the last couple of years in my opinion.

Easier to get goals and assists when you're playing with the likes of Aguero, Kane, Sane, Sterling etc. than with an aging Pedro, average Willian and misfiring strikers (and we do seem to attract those lol) .

I'm happy for him that he can live his dream though. And that 88m will probably rise to somewhere around 120 to 130 million so that's an excellent deal for a player with only 1 year on his contract and just the single club he wanted to join. There was no hope of a bidding war of any sort here, as it was either Chelsea or Madrid for him.

We may not be the biggest spenders anymore, but I have to say that Marina is excellent at getting value for her players when selling.

Road to top 4 is open for you guys now. You've got the quality so no doubt you'll get there.

7.) 07 Jun 2019 09:00:31
They also play in a much better tean then Chelsea.



06 Jun 2019 09:14:18
First signing of summer is in, Daniel James all but done!

common_sense moyes

1.) 06 Jun 2019 11:05:50
Happy with that. Not proven in the prem but looks like tidy bit of business. Lots of players who come from the lower leagues do well in the premier league if used right.

Ryan Fraser, Jamie Vardy, Zaha, Callum Wilson, Maddison, Maguire, Robertson, Dele Alli and many more.

Lets hope James can follow and be a regular for us in the future.

2.) 06 Jun 2019 11:12:47
I think he will fight with Martial for the Left wing role.

3.) 06 Jun 2019 11:51:03
Why can’t he just be friends with Martial?

No fighting, or Ole will turn the car around, and he’ll stay in Swansea for the summer smelling nothing but fish.

4.) 06 Jun 2019 13:00:36
lol Danny.

5.) 06 Jun 2019 13:05:36
Has anyone seen much of him? What type of player is he?

6.) 06 Jun 2019 13:39:25
A good un.

7.) 06 Jun 2019 15:22:00
Weggy, Fraser was bought from Aberdeen, mate. For God sake, don't let Ed007 hear you equating the SPL with the lower leagues 😁.

8.) 06 Jun 2019 17:35:38
Stevie, there is no lower league than the SPL. 🤣.

9.) 06 Jun 2019 17:58:36
I'll get my popcorn 😁.



23 Dec 2018 13:13:52
With all the discussion about how Utd out ran cardiff and the accusations that Utd players downed the tools and were not putting in the effort.

A bit of googling tells me after about 33 games last season we were 20th in the league in distance traveled with 3672 kms covered. Unless.

common_sense moyes

1.) 23 Dec 2018 13:20:33
Pressed the send button a bit too quickly. So folks unless people think players downed the tools last season as well, this whole players downed the tools and did not work hard enough narrative needs to stop.

2.) 23 Dec 2018 15:40:07
I don't think players downed tools. I think they didn't believe or trust in the style of play that was being asked of them. It's hard. bordering on impossible to be 100% committed to anything you don't 100% believe in. That's not the same as saying I won't play for a manager, just that you don't trust in his way of playing.

Plus a counter attacking team, that sits deep, plays a low block and only plays passes into feet is never going to cover a huge amount of distance. That coupled with the prevailing style last season seemed to be to play a high press with balls being played into space not feet then the average distance covered would probably be higher than usual. Which would make our lower figures look worse than they were. Remember last season we finished 2nd with a very low distance covered statistic, which highlights the many different ways to skin a cat.

For me though that style that Jose wanted us to play just doesn't fit the DNA of our club. So was never going to be a long lasting style.



22 Dec 2018 19:40:11
Great result and more importantly great football to go alongside. But we had our fair share of luck, a deflected goal, Cardiff being unable to attack. Others might not be as accommodating as Cardiff were. Young should not be starting games, the amount of times he got skinned by their wingers was only overtaken by the amount of times Herrera had to play rb as young was nowhere in sight.

common_sense moyes

1.) 22 Dec 2018 19:45:40

You mean Young who played pretty much right wing all game like we have been crying out for? Take it to these teams, if they score who cares, we score more.

2.) 22 Dec 2018 19:47:08

3.) 22 Dec 2018 19:53:24
1-5, Ole’s first game, probably the best 90 minutes of the season, time to find fault 🙄

Chill mate, it feels different right now, enjoy it.

{Ed0333's Note - sign the guy up full time I say. Most of the white half of north London are already in mourning. Lol

4.) 22 Dec 2018 19:57:55
Gds very happy with the result and football but this was only Cardiff and there were clear parts of our game where we need to improve.

5.) 22 Dec 2018 20:04:25
You make me happy when skies are grey, Alan shearer was *** dearer.
Oh don't you take my ole away.
Great game to give the players confidence going forward.

6.) 22 Dec 2018 20:22:09

Obviously we aren’t the finished article and I would be surprised if Ole doesn’t have things to work on but I’d hate to have watched that game and not be absolutely delighted and looking forward to Wednesday.

{Ed0333's Note - I’m not looking forward to Wednesday I’ll have to go to the shops and get credit notes for all the crappy presents people have bought me lol.

7.) 22 Dec 2018 20:42:21
Most enjoyable game for a long time. Great to see a high line. Great to see full backs pushing on great to see higher tempo and desire to move and keep possesion. Great to see players bombing forward off the ball.
Yes there will be sterner tests but not for 4 or 5 games.
If we can build up momentum and confidence over the next few games we can put some pressure on those a move us.
Front 3 were all as good as each other today great movement and great finishing.

8.) 22 Dec 2018 21:26:22
Oh how great it was to watch an exciting game, to not be in a bad mood, to dread watching the next game as you knew you would be frustrated, bored and angry.

Yes it was Cardiff, but we have been awful and even lost to lower teams.

My one concern was Martial did not look happy. I hope it was because he didn’t want to be subbed. Ole make him feel special, because he is special and we need him for the penetration speed and power he brings.

9.) 22 Dec 2018 21:37:59
Nice, very nice indeed.

10.) 23 Dec 2018 00:00:23
Great result last night. Well done to all. Great to see.

It could have been much much worse, another loss to a team below us, a draw even, drab unimaginative football. No goals. A lack of effort and application.

But it wasn’t. It was almost exactly what we all hoped for. 5-1 against anyone is a good result.

On a personal note, I couldn’t be happier for Ole. Great player, great bloke, great start.

Let’s take the same effort and enthusiasm into the next game!


11.) 23 Dec 2018 10:26:26
We gurn about the deflected goals against us over the season, but guess what? When you attack and take shots at goal, you will get deflections. We rarely got the benefit of these lucky breaks, because we rarely attacked.



24 Nov 2018 17:58:49
Under moyes after 13 games we were 1 point better off, had scored more goals and conceded less than right now. I never thought anyone could do worse than moyes and that too after spending 400mn.

I can't believe JM can't get this team going. First time I'm saying it but we need fresh faces and ideas.

3.) 24 Nov 2018 19:25:22
Remember when we bought Lukaku, we thought he'd be the flat track bully that would make the difference against teams in the bottom half of the table? What happened? We can add Palace to a growing list of supposed weaker teams, that we manage to make look like Barcelona. Top 4 by the end of the year? Dream on, Jose.

4.) 24 Nov 2018 19:32:04
This negativity is very stilly, We’re a point nearer top 4 than we were, hussah!

5.) 24 Nov 2018 19:34:08

I wouldn't open my curtains if Utd were playing in my backyard.

Until this manager goes nothing will change.

Bigger problems, but it has to start with the manager - 3 years it's a disgrace to our name almost every game we play. The players all look so miserable, there was a clip of them arriving at the ground and everyone of them looked like they were about to do a double shift down the mines!

9.) 24 Nov 2018 22:31:09
Awful performance . These playerd nr3d to look at themselves in the mirror .

10.) 25 Nov 2018 09:26:38
Singh, have you seen Pogba's hair? Do you really think he doesn't look at himself in the mirror? I bet he spends far too long looking at himself in the mirror.

11.) 25 Nov 2018 09:34:52
Lollll Shappy. I like that! . I think Fellaini needs tips of him!

Actually becks it won't be used instead of goal difference but as a back up to good and goals scored. So if a team is tied on points and also on goal difference and goals scored then they will also check head to head before arranging a neutral play off.

I don't get this Maguire is better than smalling and Jones argument. They both are rubbish, being better than rubbish doesn't make one great, just better than rubbish. We need a great cb or atleast someone who can be that in future. Maguire is niether. He is an average cb who we will pay premium for because he is english. We should be using the maguire money to buy someone like a koilibaly or if pogba really wants to leave convince varane.
