Ed any truth United are looking at mawson.


{Ed002's Note - I don’t know but would think he would be well down the list of CBs the club is known to be looking at, but he has an advantage of being English. There is interest from elsewhere in the PL.}

1.) 11 Apr 2018 20:46:47
Along with our other English centre backs jones and smalling?
Im never sure with some cb's sometimes they can look good because they are so busy at the likes of swansea and because he is their best defender. Over the past couple of seasons he has stood out for them so i can see why any epl side wiuld be looking at him but could he make such a big leap. Many have before him. To be honest i think its the sort of transfer that every fan likes to see succeed.

2.) 11 Apr 2018 21:52:37
Mawson is a far better player than Maguire. Although neither are good enough for us.

3.) 11 Apr 2018 22:10:52
I don't rate maguire at all shappy. It would be a huge step up for mawson but i think he is the Better of those two.

4.) 12 Apr 2018 17:34:44
Agree shappy and ken maguire’s positioning is atrocious and I’m not sure why he gets so many plaudits. Perhaps because he carries the ball out of defence but that’s where the problems lie for me. He often loses it.

Not a fan of Mawson if I’m honest. He’s decent but not good enough for us. I find it misleading buying cbs from teams that sit back as it’s easy to camp 11 men behind the ball and be structured and disciplined. The test is when you move to one of the big boys and you have to play 10 yards further forward without 2 defensive midfielders protecting you. That’s why players like Lovren have struggled. Also, we have the likes of tuanzebe coming through who has the potential to be a very good player so wouldn’t be going anywhere near the likes of Mawson or Maguire.

If we do need a cb we need a top quality one whose better than we have got to partner bailly. It would have to be of the ilk of Umtiti, Alderweireld or varane. But tbh I would like to see lindelof to have a run in the team as I think he has the attributes to be a good cb. Otherwise my choice to partner bailly would be Rojo but he is not very good at playing out of the back. Cb is the least of our worries for me.

5.) 14 Apr 2018 14:14:16
It may just be me but I quite like Maguire . The way he breaks from the back and breaks play up. "Like a young Steve Bruce"😆😆.

{Ed001's Note - without the defensive ability or reading of the game of Bruce. In fact the only similarity between the two I can think of is that they both have a face only a mother can love....}

6.) 15 Apr 2018 10:19:44
If Alderweireld is available he’d be the signing for me! Top quality.

Good mate if my incidentally is Spurs fan and they have all well and truly turned on Danny Rose down there.



23 Mar 2018 08:20:05
Ed is there any truth in the rumour that Sanchez isn't happy with life at United and some at the club aren't happy with his attitude.


{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of. He is unhappy with his form.}

1.) 23 Mar 2018 12:47:04
Some people are getting desperate aren't they. That's not aimed at Jred but whoever started that rumour.

2.) 23 Mar 2018 13:10:21
Now media is trying to just find the smallest of things and making it sensational. If we believe them half of the squad is unhappy with the coach and each other. Just read yesterday that Mourinho was unhappy with Pogba because he congratulated Mou mid interview after the Liverpool victory.

3.) 23 Mar 2018 13:44:08
the most ludicrous one I've seen is sanchez has no friends and sits by himself at meal times. Just media stirring the pot and spouting rubbish. I believe sanchez is fine just unhappy with his performances and rightly so. He is immensely talented and sets high standards for himself. I would rather he was like this than lacking drive.

4.) 24 Mar 2018 16:41:40
Park, is it ludicrous? Apparently / allegedly he was loner at Arsenal too. He may be a great player but I’m not sure how social he is.

{Ed001's Note - he has never been particularly sociable which caused him problems as Barca with Messi. Some people just do not want to go out on nights out with the lads, they are homebodies.}



22 Mar 2018 13:05:50
Looks like ibra is off to America.


1.) 22 Mar 2018 14:50:15
Good, should never have signed him in the first place, never mind re-signing him after his injury.

2.) 22 Mar 2018 18:51:01
Thats a lot of wages off the book. he shouldve gone in the summer.

3.) 22 Mar 2018 19:21:22
Tattoo. Without Ibra, s contribution last season, We would have won naff all. Pleasure to see him play at OT . Wish we could have got him 5 years earlier.
Good luck to him I say.

4.) 22 Mar 2018 21:54:38
Anyone else think the timings convenient? Hasn’t won the Champions League in his career and a week after we go out he’s off. Maybe just coincidence but who knows. Was a pleasure watching him last season. Fair enough this season was a disaster for him but for some it may have clouded over their memory from the season before. L To get 28 goals and not even finish out the season at 35 is testimont to him. Wish him the best of luck in the future.

5.) 22 Mar 2018 22:45:58
Ibra was only a success last season because he was made the focal point of the team at others expense, he slowed everything down and has hindered the teams progress into this season. I thank him for his contribution but we will be better off without him. I also don't buy in to the Jose / Ibra love in, where is it now?

6.) 23 Mar 2018 13:47:24
I tend to agree tattoo we are a far better player without him. i think it was sentimental reasons for giving zlatan a new contract and to help him get fit. In hindsight perhaps very naive but i actually commend the club for it. Shows some class that they stood by him and helped him rehabilitate. He will have been very grateful i suspect. right time to go and frees up a lot of wages in the squad to bring in another top player.



09 Mar 2018 21:41:40
Rumour is no pogba tomorrow?


1.) 09 Mar 2018 22:05:31
Seen that jred. Would be disastrous if that is the case. He is the only player who can link us from defence to attack. A midfield of McTominay matic and Fellaini/ Carrick is very uninspiring. Let’s see if it is true could be mind games from Jose.

2.) 09 Mar 2018 22:49:19
I'm Pogba's biggest fan but even I have to admit he's been really poor since the Spurs defeat.

I feel almost stupid saying this but could it be a blessing in disguise?
Nah who am I kidding?!

On the other hand It may just allow Jose to pick his preferred formation of 4-2-3-1 safe in the knowledge that the two midfielders will hold their position and not vacate the midfield leaving us vulnerable to the counter attack.

If Pogba is injured I'd be tempted to play Carrick (big ask I know) next to Matic, with Martial left (if fit) Sanchez behind Lukaku and Mata on the right.

Carrick is positionally astute and very good on the ball. He's brilliant at feeding passes into the forwards and will bring calmness, maturity and experience . My worry is he's struggled in the past when pressed quickly and we might end up getting over run in midfield. I thought Mctominay struggled in midweek and maybe he just needs a break after a very encouraging start to his career.

I think without Pogba we can't really deploy a three man midfield and I'd rather see an extra attacker than Fellaini coming in to replace Pogba.

Mata came on last week and knitted things together nicely and with Martial and Sanchez supporting Lukaku with the security of two holding midfielders we could potentially see the best of our attacking quartet.

Liverpool will play their usual game pressing high so in theory our attackers should have more space if we can beat their press. If Carrick can thread balls into Sanchez and Lukaku we could be in business. Maybe?!

3.) 09 Mar 2018 23:20:38
Just read Martial is out as well!

4.) 10 Mar 2018 09:10:28
Even though pogba has been poor of late Danny, without him in the team there is nobody can pick the ball up from midfield and drive us forwards. Yes Carrick’s passing is very good and he can pick out a pass, but with him and matic there is a serious lack of legs and mobility. I would be tempted to put mata in at 10 if pogba is out as he is the only other person who can play the sort of passes pogba can. I’m very nervous for this game and hearing about pogba has made those nerves ten times worse! Let’s see what Jose has up his sleeve.

5.) 10 Mar 2018 11:05:26
MEN reckon he's definitely out. For me Pogba has generally disappointed in these big games but there is nothing like his potential quality in any other midfielder to get hold of the ball and do something. Matic carras mctom possibly fellaini screams out as a flat and basic midfield, lacking pace and legs. Strangely enough matic would be the best out of those to take the ball forwards.

We should seriously consider going 3 at the back now as we have to go wide in this game.

Confidence levels are pretty low but that's often been when we've pulled out a result against that mob! Come on United.

6.) 10 Mar 2018 17:57:54

Good to read something afterwards that was clearly from a very knowledgable place, some of your posts on here are brilliant mate, you were right about the 4-2-3-1 without Pogba and Mata did the job you suggested he would.

7.) 10 Mar 2018 21:45:43

Thanks mate, so glad we won today but I'm worried about Tuesday night I think it's a really tricky game.

8.) 11 Mar 2018 20:45:31
Yeah great post Danny. always very consistent and as knowledgeable as any poster on here. Great read after the fact.



17 Feb 2018 13:55:03
Pogba not in the squad.


1.) 17 Feb 2018 14:37:55
No, he's house hunting in Madrid as it's already agreed he'll go in the summer for £85 million so that we at least get out money back and relieve us of the burden of having him in the squad. To sweeten the deal Madrid will chuck in a metre long stick of chorizo.

2.) 17 Feb 2018 16:44:04
I read he was ill.

3.) 17 Feb 2018 18:10:45
I read he got a bad haircut and didn't want to be seen out in public until it grows back.

4.) 18 Feb 2018 01:38:14

That hasn’t stopped him the rest of the season!

Nice and fresh for Seville.

5.) 18 Feb 2018 01:38:30
At least he can go to a barber there.

6.) 18 Feb 2018 08:26:27
Haha love your work gds 😂.

7.) 18 Feb 2018 11:01:18
Must have been annoying to think of that sixteen seconds after posting your original message GDS.

Nonetheless, you win the internet for the day.

8.) 18 Feb 2018 22:52:24

Very annoying, literally as I pressed send!

At this moment In time salah is playing at Messi Ronaldo level .
Who would of liked to sign him in the summer.
Some times players just need a bit of time.


{Ed0333's Note - I think the whole world would like to sign him atm.

1.) 24 Apr 2018 22:11:44
he is phenomenal at the moment. And he is a really likeable guy who is humble and seems a really nice person. If liverpool win he has to win the ballon d'or. it is a real possibility liverpool will win it. I do think he would not replicate this sort of form at any other team apart from football because of the way klopp's tactics are. he would do well at city but i don't think he would be as prolific.

{Ed0333's Note - I think he’s that good a football player he’ll be great wherever he plays mate

2.) 24 Apr 2018 22:21:28
He is as good as anyone in the world at the moment .
Just shows you the benefit of getting a player playing to his potential.

3.) 24 Apr 2018 23:28:34
Fair enough ed not doubting his ability, he’s up with the best at the moment. But I feel Klopp is the one that’s brought it out of him and he wouldn’t be this prolific if he were elsewhere. and fair play to him because Salah is unplayable this season. Until he came up against Ashley young 😂😂.

{Ed0333's Note - lol. Yes Ashley Young and the other 54 players you put on him. I think Klopp deserves to take some of the credit for the players metirotic ascendency especially as he didn’t want him in the first place, but in the end Salah’s unadultared naked determination, steel, and unique skill set has to take the majority of the plaudits.

4.) 24 Apr 2018 23:47:24
Rivalry aside you can't deny Liverpool are playing some beautiful football and salah is an absolute joy to watch, had he been at Utd this summer there's no way he'd have replicated this form due to the way we play sadly. I say this with gritted teeth but I expect them to win the champions league.

5.) 24 Apr 2018 23:48:35
Agree jred Klopp has his team playing out their skin. Especially the front 3. I feel majority of our players aren’t even playing 50% to their capacity. We have some very good attacking players. Don’t need to add any imo and Jose needs to be getting them playing to their potential. We will start blowing team away then.

6.) 25 Apr 2018 06:38:24
Fair play to him, he's gone beyond the amount of goals Ronaldo scored when we last won the champions league. Who'd of thunk it.

7.) 25 Apr 2018 09:01:03
Loll what potentiall. With potential you need a brain and some of them don't have it.

8.) 25 Apr 2018 12:27:57
all the plaudits for salah are deserved on his record and style of play this season, but for all I don't like doggy dentured firmino it has to be said that he really has helped him along the way.

9.) 25 Apr 2018 23:17:41
Well spotted cookyman, Salah gets all the plaudits but Firminio makes it all tick, most underrated player in the Prem.



22 Apr 2018 23:57:07
We need to find a replacement for Michael Carrick and if Maraoune Fellaini leaves, we need to find a replacement for him.

“And there is always in a squad, a player or a couple of players who are not playing a lot and will try to leave.

“So we will touch our squad and more than spend, spend, spend believe in the evolution of our players. We have some young players who need to get with both hands opportunities for their evolution. ”Jose
Sounds about right to me.


1.) 23 Apr 2018 01:27:05
I’m very interested to see the pre season tour squad this summer with a number of the first team at the World Cup. Would like to see a few of the under 18s maybe brought along and Jose to give them a proper crack at it!

2.) 23 Apr 2018 05:54:55
Chong, Gomes, Axel, Fosu will have to grab their chances and impress during pre season tour.

3.) 23 Apr 2018 09:10:07
Mason Greenwood is the next in the line, only 16 but definitely a touch of class about him, not sure he will get on the tour but definitely been pushing for a place in the academy this season, perhaps a move into the under 18s next season for him.

4.) 23 Apr 2018 10:24:47
Id like to see those 4 get a chance Andy. Especially Fosu mensah. Andrea pereira is the one I am most keen to see get a chance. Think he made a mistake going on loan and think he would have played a fair bit this year with our midfield issues. Can play in a three man midfield or off the left and has quality from deadballs we so desperately need. Hope he puts his head down and stakes a claim because he is very talented.

5.) 23 Apr 2018 10:54:54
Adreas real made a mistake Park, he could have played majority of games this season considering the situation we had with midfielders.

6.) 23 Apr 2018 12:47:05
I imagine one signing with mctominay and fosu.

7.) 23 Apr 2018 14:33:53
Agree Kennedy he would have played instead of mctominay and may have made that third midfield spot his own. He clearly has the creativity to do so. Let’s see what happens when he comes back but Lukaku could have done with some of his crosses to head it.

8.) 23 Apr 2018 14:55:05
I think he'll be sold.

9.) 23 Apr 2018 16:31:07
I think he's blown it in mourinhos eyes.



15 Apr 2018 18:24:03
Will pogba be at United next season?


1.) 15 Apr 2018 18:31:54
Should he be?

2.) 15 Apr 2018 18:37:55
His style of play is incompatible with Mourinho's. So he should probably move on for his own sake.

3.) 15 Apr 2018 18:40:52
I would not be too upset to see him go.

4.) 15 Apr 2018 18:41:54
Tell us the answer to that jred or even your opinion.

5.) 15 Apr 2018 18:54:01
I would have thought he will be jred will teams pay the money involved to buy him or want to shell out huge wages for him, he's more often a show pony than an effective cm .
I wouldn't just pick him out today he was poor but all the team bar the goalie were . How many of the team would people be truely gutted to see leave as they are irreplaceable bar ddg, maybe rash .
The team were listless it's ok saying it's deadwood from previous managers but jm bought 5 of them .
I have no clue our best formation or best team . We have gained some decent results against good sides but have have shown poor attitude in some of our lesser games on paper .

6.) 15 Apr 2018 19:06:15
Makes you wonder why the manager bought him?

7.) 15 Apr 2018 19:27:05
are you suggesting he should go Jred? It looks like you don't want him to stay.

8.) 15 Apr 2018 19:49:54
Would Pogba get into any of the other top sides? Liverpool maybe who play Henderson and Milner but beyond that, who? He has been bang average for most games, he flatters to deceive.

9.) 15 Apr 2018 21:56:44
Back to the lost soul pogba today.

10.) 15 Apr 2018 23:42:59
In a game like last 2 seasons. doesn't matter. I was so excited when he returned. but I wish we would move for Kante instead.

11.) 16 Apr 2018 05:30:28
If Pogba leaves because he's "incompatible", then you might as well add martial rashford sanchez mata Herrera shaw blind Darmian fellaini to the list as not many players seem happy playing for Mourinho.

12.) 16 Apr 2018 06:23:22
I want rid of pogba because I asked "Will pogba be at United next season"

I hope he is here playing well next season, but I'm not sure he is going to be . Doesn't look happy to me.



13 Apr 2018 21:45:32
"I am going to fulfil the year that I have left but I don’t know if I will renew, ”

“We have started talking, although nothing has been decided yet. ”


1.) 13 Apr 2018 22:06:55
Can’t see him staying. He’s reaching the last peak years of his career, and wants to be a starter. Same with Fellaini. We have a big investment to make in midfield over the next few years.

2.) 13 Apr 2018 22:25:20
Looks like he will see his contract out like fellaini .

3.) 13 Apr 2018 22:49:12
We should sign him to a new contract and He should b3 given more game time.

4.) 13 Apr 2018 22:57:52
Love Ander but not quite good enough for the highest level.

5.) 14 Apr 2018 05:02:19
I really like Ander

Shame the other players don't have as much passion for MUFC like he does.

6.) 14 Apr 2018 06:27:18
Eros, he was our player of the year last year, and look how he payed against City. Not sure what has gone on but he hasn’t had a fair run this year.

7.) 14 Apr 2018 09:07:25
Eros? Sorry Eric, I renamed you there.

8.) 14 Apr 2018 11:13:03
Herrera ia a good squad player.
Always gives 100%.
If he stays i'm happy if he leaves i wouldn't be gutted.
Id rather give me an extentention on same terms so if he doesn't get anymore game time next season and decides to leave then at least we get a fee and he is the type of player that won't let you down if he plays regularly.

{Ed001's Note - I am sure you would rather give yourself a contract on his terms! Not sure how that would Man Utd giving you a deal though??}

9.) 14 Apr 2018 12:13:33
Sorry ed typo obviously 😂 not 'me' him.
That said they might be better off giving me a contract over fellaini but to be honest herrera has the edge over me😂😂.

{Ed001's Note - just checking...}



08 Apr 2018 19:29:37
Ed2 is there any info you can give us in regards to pogba . Is he looking to leave United, would the club let him go for the right money.
Is there any issues with him and Jose.


{Ed002's Note - His agent offered him to a few clubs but that is it really. The deal is far from attactive. I don't expect him to move.}

1.) 08 Apr 2018 22:10:17
Good evening Ed, if you have time can you please explain how this works I really don't understand any of it?

What's the point in Pogba's agent offering him to other Clubs when he's not even two years into a five year contract? Surely Utd would have to be willing to sell and are under no pressure to do so as he's under contract.

Is the agent working off his own back or with the knowledge and blessing of the Club? Surely Utd would never sell a talent like Pogba, approaching his peak years to our main rivals especially after having invested so much to bring him back!

I just can't make any sense of it?

{Ed002's Note - Iris business as usual, how do you think MU buy players?}

2.) 08 Apr 2018 23:31:49
I presume they make an acceptable offer to another Club and then agree personal terms.

He has been offered a 5 year contract which talks you a lot .
40 appearances so far in the EPL only lukaku has scored more
If he had went out on loan would he of gained more than that?
Who would of taking up the slack of him not being here?
How would his situation now of been any different, lukaku Sanchez etc would still be at the club he would still want reasurrences over his playing time .
New contract with a lot of other options as he is a top player, big decision .

If he wants to leave and won't sign a contract then it would be best to let him go .

But all this we should sell because of x y z are a bit silly imo .
If there were not rumours in the papers very few would want to sell a very talented young player .

Jose has said time and again he likes a small squad .
Carrick with his illness is a miss but we still have mctom pogba Herrera matic and fellaini. We will prob sign 1 for cm .
Won't be many 3 tops first team players tho .
Like every summer and any other team prob sign 3 ish players.
