Ed is there any more news on angel homes future, been a lot of talk he could be leaving in the summer.

Reports today that pogba could be out for six week and that Jose wants ozil.

jred

1.) 14 Sep 2017 10:05:11
Shame about pogba hopefully herrera or fellani can do well in the b2b role hopefully pogba's back for the pool game as for ozil would stay well clear of the lazy frog.


2.) 14 Sep 2017 13:00:41
Ozil gets a lot of bad press for me a lot of the time unjustly so and is one of the scapegoats in that Arsenal team when things aren't going well, his decision making and final pass is 2nd to none, lukaku and rashford would be licking there lips to play with him.


3.) 14 Sep 2017 13:21:19
Stratford
He is a star player for a very good German national team . Player of the year 5 times in the last 6 year.


4.) 14 Sep 2017 12:54:23
I would happily take Ozil, especially on a free Stockport. He gets so much undeserved criticism for when Arsenal play bad, again this season he's created so much for them but they waste everything he creates, making him look like he's had a poor game. If Jose can get him to the level he was at during their time in Madrid then we will be in for a treat as he's that good.


5.) 14 Sep 2017 14:46:18
Who would you drop for Ozil?
And would that mean Griezmann is off the table?


6.) 14 Sep 2017 17:20:19
In a world where an average footballer can cost 40 million, Ozil on a free is a no brainer. Judge a fishes ability to climb a tree and you won't be happy wit the results. Ozil isn't there for his work rate and off the ball pressing. He's there as the key to unlocking a defence. Stick him in amongst world class talent and he'll shine.


7.) 14 Sep 2017 18:09:30
Pretty sure Ozil ran about 1.5km further per game than Sanchez last season. I think his laziness is a myth. We've played well with Mata wide right this season and I'd see Ozil as an upgrade, so wouldn't be wholly against this at all.


8.) 17 Oct 2017 11:41:12
I would drop Mata and play Ozil in the number 10 role. he would be our Scholes which we have never been able to replace. Would have to play 4231.

Stick Griezeman on the right and rash/ martial based on from and merit get to play on the left with lusaka on top and then you have a scary team with Pogba and Matic in there.


 

 

07 Aug 2017 14:17:25
Lot of rumours we have moved for segi Roberto.
Would be a surprise.

jred

1.) 07 Aug 2017 15:06:54
Interesting rumour, I like him. But struggle to see where he fits into our team. Maybe back up in midfield and at right back.


2.) 07 Aug 2017 15:42:52
Would be a good back up like Shappy said.

Personally can't see the reason though, would prefer Fabinho if we wanted a backup CM/ RB.


3.) 07 Aug 2017 16:13:11
Not for the prices touted around.


4.) 07 Aug 2017 18:25:15
The lads a cm/ attacking cm got converted to play RB and lb just to get him in the team, he struggled at full back tho .
That's the Barcelona way, but he is not really a fullback and it showed.


5.) 07 Aug 2017 18:25:52
Mort 34 mill seems cheap these days .


6.) 07 Aug 2017 19:25:48
Just for your information, guys. Chelsea reportedly were willing to meet his release clause, but the player himself didn't want to move away from Barca. Make of it what you will.


7.) 07 Aug 2017 21:16:53
34 mill for a squad player who's be no more than cover is still a rip off.

Reports Madrid have turned down a bid for morata and are holding out for 80 mil.

jred

1.) 15 Jun 2017 14:47:17
If that's the case I'd say see ya and go look for a different striker.

How can they seriously ask for that much for someone who sits on their bench?!


2.) 15 Jun 2017 14:53:47
If that's the case and they come calling for dave the save. It's simple

We over price them as well. I can't stand Madrid.


3.) 15 Jun 2017 15:02:22
Bolger, I=if we follow the price for goalkeepers (Pickford 30 mil and Ederson 45 mil, there is no such thing as overpricing de Gea.


4.) 15 Jun 2017 15:18:09
Agree weggy walk away if there's any truth in 80 million we are trying to compete with real Madrid not finance their next superstar by buying there sub. Who else is going to give them anywhere near that, call there bluff and walk away or change target . I'd rather poke up Torino than real Madrid.


5.) 15 Jun 2017 15:24:54
The problem is we would be buying a player they don't particularly want and they would use the money to buy one the best young strikers in the world in Mbappe.

I'd rather pay an extra 30m and go for Mbappe instead.


6.) 15 Jun 2017 15:47:44
Weggy,

The problem with that is, that Mbappe doesn't want to come to United. You pay Monaco 200 Mil, Mbappe still wouldn't sign on the dotted line.


7.) 15 Jun 2017 16:44:33
Mbappe is so overrated one good season in france and there talking stupid money he's the same as martial but with confidence and playing in an easier league we need a number 9 Mbappe is similar to rashford, martial we need the finisher goal scourer! Morata'balotti, kane type player!


8.) 15 Jun 2017 17:30:18
If that's what Morata's price tag is get it paid and get him signed up, we can afford it, mourinho wants him and he wants to come. I would rather pay what they want than include de gea in any deal.


9.) 15 Jun 2017 18:09:20
Where does it end though GDS? At some point we have to draw a line and refuse otherwise the 200million war chest will only end up buying 2 or 3 players instead of the rumoured 5 that we're after.

I get the impression Madrid are just being arsey because they can't get De Gea from us easily.


10.) 15 Jun 2017 18:19:09
I agree GDS it's all speculation anyway.

The problem we're facing is the player is under contract, from what I've read Madrid would like to keep him and he has no real desire to leave other than to play more regularly which can't be guaranteed at any top Club he joins anyway!

Madrid can name their price, try and get the best deal for their Club and negotiate from a position of strength.

If we don't want to pay the money we go elsewhere but your probably talking even more money for the likes of Lukaku or Belotti and are either of them much better anyway?

If we don't go for any of the above who are the alternatives?

Do we go with just Rashford and Martial?

For what it's worth I don't think we'll pay anywhere near £80m and the deal will get done around £60-65m.

We set the bar high when we shelled out over £60m for the relatively unknown Martial, we can't blame Madrid for trying to get the best deal for their player.


11.) 15 Jun 2017 18:49:14
Danny IL try and offer a view as why a few struggle with morata price . What's causing his valuation people don't see it in his record, sub then 15 in two seasons at juventos then back to Madrid bench again, nobody saying he's a bad player . Is valuation because there's fierce competition for him forcing the price up, maybe but haven't heard much about that . Or finally is price seeming so high cause they don't want to sell, but they seem fairly keen to negotiate if that's the case, maybe they are only willing to negotiate because it's to good a deal for them not to . Personally I'd walk away explore other options and see if there stance changed a little if all interest went because of the price . Hopefully figures of 70 or 80 million is wild paper talk.


12.) 15 Jun 2017 22:20:06
These fee's are getting beyond a joke. Maybe it is just me but if we need to splash the cash wouldn't it be better to go after a Lukaku, Snachez or Costa who have proven guaranteed goals in England?


13.) 15 Jun 2017 22:36:31
40 mil. Is a good price for him.
When clubs see us coming they put the price of a player up.


14.) 16 Jun 2017 00:06:41
I would want us to go in for Aubameyang. Seems his move to PSG has broken down. He's rapid, scores goals. sign him up!


15.) 16 Jun 2017 07:17:20
I would take Aubameyang all day long - especially now the SUN (! ) is reporting Morata is offered 350,000 quid a week -.


16.) 16 Jun 2017 09:14:26
With you here MAZE.

If we're going to over pay for a striker we might as well go for one we know is capable of doing it in the PL.

Signing Lukaku for 80m makes more sense than signing Morata for 80m.


17.) 16 Jun 2017 13:45:31
It all comes down to how badly they want to sell him and, to a lesser extent, how badly the player wants to leave. If, as Zidane maintains, they don't want to sell him - then I can see them holding out for silly money. If, as I suspect is the case, they're looking to use the money as part of a bid for another player, they will try and get as much money as possible but will not push too much on the price for fear of scaring us away (as we are one of the only clubs stupid enough to pay that kind of amount right now) .

I can see us signing him for around £65m - which is way too much considering his true value but not so bad when you consider how much players like Carrol and Pickford cost in the past.

Personally, if the price rises much higher than £65m, I'd like to see us turn our attention elsewhere. I still maintain that every player has a price - and so if we're going to spend an insane amount I'd rather we throw the money towards the very best strikers like Kane or Dybala.

Their clubs may say that they don't want to sell - but offer the right amount and eventually they will bite. The players may say they don't want to move - but if you offer them enough money they will change their tune.

For what it's worth (and before people start making this point), I hate that I find myself making this suggestion. There was a time when I believed that the reputation of the club and the prospect of playing for us was enough to attract the best players - but that time has gone and football has changed. We haven't been competitive at home or in Europe for four seasons now - so we need to bring in the right players to get the club back to the top. If that means spending - then so be it. At least we're spending money generated by the clubs success rather than being bankrolled by oil.

Sounds like a few still haven't come to terms with life after fergy .
Not guaranteed success, changing managers etc .

I'm sure everyone is feeling sorry for some of the spoilt United fans .

We will have to make do with a manager like Jose, playing in front of a half empty derelict stadium, watching players like pogba who we bought for a packet of chips, surrounded by semi pros who don't pick up the best pay packets in the league but do get a packet of crisps and half pint after the game .

Bottom of the league, out the cups?
Where's the plan?

jred

1.) 11 Dec 2017 09:14:56
You're not the sharpest knife in the drawer Jred, but I cannot help but love you.


2.) 11 Dec 2017 09:34:28
Its a relegation battle from here on in jred.


3.) 11 Dec 2017 09:59:59
We are doomed I tell ya doomed .


What chance have we got, all the other teams have better managers players money infrastrucre .
We are getting worse season after season .


4.) 11 Dec 2017 10:48:19
Jred,

We don’t always agree but I’m with you on this one, overreactions to defeats are the norm on here though so no surprise. We lost to 2 scruffy goals whilst missing our best defender and best midfielder but the world has ended. Anyone who didn’t think we would lose once Pogba got sent off last week is kidding themselves.


5.) 11 Dec 2017 10:50:42
What kind of post is that Jred?

We've just lost the derby where we got totally our classed and more worrying out fought by our fiercest rivals. I think people are entitled to give their opinions about what went wrong?

Once we start accepting performances like y'day and that City are better, we lose our winning mentality, cutting edge and everything Fergi spent building for 25 years! We then become all those things you've just listed.

There is no bigger Utd fan than me, I love the Club, I love going to the matches, I love talking and debating about football. We all know it's not the end of the world but it hurts after a derby defeat especially when it almost certainly means that they'll win the title before Christmas and we didn't even make a tackle or make it hard for them!

For the record I'm a Jose fan, I still think we're going in the right direction and in Bailly, Pogba and Matic I think he's made some excellent signings. I'm bitterly disappointed about y'day because whilst City have improved immeasurably from last season Jose still feels the need to play ultra defensive football (in the big games) asking two CF's to play as auxiliary full backs!

I just feel 3 at the back suits the players in our squad at the moment, we get natural width with Young and Valencia and Martial can play higher up the pitch where he can run with the ball and terrify defences.

I didn't get the tactic's y'day, we were sitting ducks and played the entire game hoping they'd make a mistake rather than trying to create something ourselves.

It's the only game when I've felt let down by Jose defensive mentality and it's now obvious from
his results against the big 6 that it's simply not working and he needs a major re think!

This City side are far to good to play like that and we got exactly what we deserved!


6.) 11 Dec 2017 11:23:21
United are second only to a team that has had the best start to a season after 16 games ever in the English game and have just put together the longest winning streak in the history .
That's better than any team under fergy achieved, any team under Jose that great arsenal team them great Liverpool teams .
United where sat 6th this time last season and only 11 teams in the epl had scored less. This season only a record breaking city have scored more or have more points .
Yet we have a poor squad no plan etc? Doesn't say much about the other teams in the league behind us

That last time we won the league we had just beat city at this point of the season to give us 4 more points than we have now.

The year we won the treble we had 6 less points at this stage of the season .
And yet we have a poor squad no ambition no plan etc etc etc .

Maybe we are doing really well just not as good as 1 team that has raised the bar after 16 games higher than it's ever been before?


7.) 11 Dec 2017 11:26:42
Danny fergy got beat 6.1 by city, it happens .
It doesn't mean the club has no plan poor squad no ambition etc etc.


8.) 11 Dec 2017 11:40:18
Anyone who didn't think we would lose cause pogba got sent off last week is kidding themselves.
So gds2 are we a one man team now.
And we should all be happy cause city are the best team in the league.


9.) 11 Dec 2017 11:48:11
Jred - I agree with a lot of your posts pal. I know it's not the end of the world and I actually think we're still heading in the right direction. Maybe the final piece of the jigsaw is not being so ultra defensive in the big games. I actually think we've got a good team!

The manner of the defeat hurt maybe I'm still a bit emotional!

Anyway decent draw in the Champs League, by no means a gimme but certainly winnable so lots to look forward to!


10.) 11 Dec 2017 12:58:08
Leahy,

Not a one man team but city are bloody good this season and it would take our best team to beat them which we didn’t have, our best midfielder was missing and we have struggled against much worse teams than city without him this season.


 

 

10 Dec 2017 18:47:24
Any one seen the United midfield, been missing for about a month .

Nothing happens in the centre of the park, it's either in there last 3rd our our last 3rd .

The opposing team are up against our back 4 with 2 or 3 passes .

We are behind city but it's hard to be in front of them, they have made the best start to a season in the history of English football .
That's a tough act to follow at the moment .

jred

1.) 10 Dec 2017 19:21:48
Better midfielders required jred. Kroos class midfielders. That's what we need. A left back and left winger and a tricky striker.
If the club are serious then perisic, Sandro or Rose, Kroos or Savic, and most importantly, Dybala is what we need.


2.) 10 Dec 2017 20:06:13
I'm not looking to start a witchhunt but Herrera was poor again, he plays with heart but that'll only get you so far.

Jred our wing play isn't much better,
We need a decent winger, perisic we should have signed. we are further away than we think.


2.) 10 Dec 2017 19:01:01
We are closer than any other team in the league Leahy.
I'm not sure it's another winger we need . Maybe another pep.


3.) 10 Dec 2017 19:07:30
Well when we play counter attacking football we don't play with a midfield. It's simply defend, then attack. There's no middle ground.


4.) 10 Dec 2017 19:15:54
Syd
It's been like that for a month now, nothing happens in the middle of the park we don't control games .
The opposition have a go at our back 4 every time they get the ball .


5.) 10 Dec 2017 19:21:18
Lukkaku a big man upfront, does he need a decent winger, yes, cross the ball. our midfield is absent so we must have a decent winger.
Our tactics are too safe.


6.) 10 Dec 2017 19:23:13
I mentioned perisic before the season started but was told we had Radford and martial. Neither of them are wingers.


7.) 10 Dec 2017 19:30:07
In the big games we play counter therefore Pogba usually joins attack, Matic joins defence. But I agree in the other games we are always outnumbered in the middle. It's almost always Pogba and Matic versus sometimes four opposition midfielders.


8.) 10 Dec 2017 19:42:00
Attack
And if we had off bought perisic he would off been amazing week after week, settled no problem etc etc .

Jesus he might of even got to the standard off miki .
But we didn't and probably won't sign him .

I really don't get the set up in midfield at the minute, teams are up against our back 4 every time they get the ball.
That said can't be to disappointed with the start to the season, the issue is city have raised the bar so high .

Jose has had some very good Chelsea teams fergy some very good United teams, been some great Liverpool teams, none of the started a season as good as city have .

Just to put it in to perspective when United drew against Liverpool that was our best ever start to a season
.
I'm not sure things are quite as bad as some would like to make out.

HT westHam up 1-0 👏👏
Hope they score another to close at 2-0.
City look pretty tired and quiet so far Jred.
Gets me thinking we should be aggressive and attack next week.

{Ed004's Note - They won’t be tired and quiet next week. You can be sure of that much. Not getting my hopes up like during the week. Remember it’s a David Moyes side we are relying on}


2.) 03 Dec 2017 17:07:12
Agree Ed004.
Whatever it is we need to be really focus and play well. It’s a very important and defining game for us in terms of tightening on City. Hope Pogba’s red is overturned 🙏 though I know it’ll be tough.

{Ed004's Note - No chance it’s gets overturned. Imagine the uproar}


3.) 03 Dec 2017 18:02:23
It's a must win game for us and if we leave gaps, then city will put four past us.


4.) 03 Dec 2017 18:06:41
Attack like Watford and arsenal.


5.) 03 Dec 2017 18:13:41
Keep it up AAA your negativity and lack of belief is inspiring the team😂😂😂
City have stumbled over the line in their last 3 games. don't get me wrong that's the sign of a great team but it's getting tougher for them. Once the bubbble bursts and they get a setback or fail to stumble over the line we will see what they are made of. I don't see them falling apart but if the gap narrows and it becomes tight my money would be on jose and united.


6.) 03 Dec 2017 18:25:26
Its a long way down from the top.

City are the real deal, just like Chelsea the EPL is a competitive league with a lot of cash around .

Chelsea where top of the league for the most part of last season, city have been excellent this year. ALl 5 teams from England are through to the next round of the CL.
Spurs done Madrid over 2 games the scouse are on the up its getting harder .
United haven't got the comfort blanket of fergy.

Shaps
Mendy has done nothing in the epl and was taken apart by the scouse so the jury is still out .
I'm a fan of stones but just like sterling he has taken a huge amount of stick on the site .

But they don't need to strengthen the likes of stones or sterling players who only a few month ago where considered overrated and not that good by many on the site because they are playing well .

Fernadinho has been outstanding under pep is he a more gifted player than matic or Herrera? Not sure but he is playing better .

Would we need a wide player if we could get the best out of rash and martial like city are out of sterling and sane .

In fact would we lack creativity if we got the best out of pogba Mata or Miki.

Can't help but think the biggest difference to the 2 squads is 1 is really playing to it's potential.

City had a back 4 of walker a past it kompany a pretty average otamendi and not exactly a star in delph.

A front 3 of sterling how much stick has that lad got on this site, a 21 year old sane and a 20 year old Jesus.
Hats of tho they have them 3 playing to there potential .
2 young lads from a different culture playing out there skin.

And that is a big thing imo how many of the city players are playing to or above there potential .
United are doing well this season but there are a few underperforming.

Not sure city would look quite the same with an injury to Silva or kdb. Hopefully we find out soon ( not a bad one tho )
