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


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
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.


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.



04 Jul 2017 12:15:00
Do any of the eds have any idea if united still have an interest in lukaku.


{Ed002's Note - Yes, nothing has changed.}



15 Jun 2017 14:28:42
Reports Madrid have turned down a bid for morata and are holding out for 80 mil.


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

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.



01 Jun 2017 14:35:10
Matic rumour gathering a bit of pace.


1.) 01 Jun 2017 18:39:12
Good player IMO.

Another good night for English clubs in the CL.


1.) 17 Oct 2017 21:55:08
Good night for Goals Galore (BTTS), bookies will be paying out tonight.

Well done Spurs for going to Madrid and playing football.

2.) 17 Oct 2017 22:06:47
Very solid syd, good upfront as well good performance .
7 goals for the scouse as well score goals them boys.

3.) 17 Oct 2017 23:12:57
Yes i thought spurs were terrific city from the highlights were good value for their win and scoring 7 in any game is great that had been coming for a while imo from Liverpool.
Lets hope tomorrow we can get back to the tempo we played prior to last Saturday.

4.) 18 Oct 2017 06:42:01
I thought Spurs were terrific and a great result for Liverpool. Let's hope we set up to win and not just sneak a goal.

5.) 18 Oct 2017 08:02:07
Haven't seen any of the city game but that's a good win napoli are a good team from what I've seen this season.

6.) 18 Oct 2017 09:16:38
Praise must go to pochettino for playing two out and out strikers at RM in the bernabau. I thought they rode their luck a bit but Kane could have nicked it late on. So they deserve their point just for their courage and trying to play football. If mourinho is thinking of leaving (And I won't be surprised if he does as Woodward and the owners have shown their lack of ambition in comparison to other top clubs), then I would love Pochettino to come. We would finally have a manager with the right idea of playing football and he's good at man management and seems a down to earth person. He will also fit in with glazers and Woodward player recruitment as he's been quite shrewd at his time at Southampton and Spurs.
City were lucky I thought, napoli missed a penalty and stones handball should have seen them concede another penalty. Ref got the calls right apart from that one. But city's defence did look shambolic at times.

7.) 18 Oct 2017 10:09:42
Since Jose come to town how many teams have spent more than us?
Woodward and the glazers player recruitment?
We have spent a fourtune the last few years .
Thankfully we got our business done before the neymar deal but pogba and lukaku where huge deals .
And I fully expect us to spend big again in the market next summer.

8.) 18 Oct 2017 14:21:34
Schmid, you're criticising the lack of ambition of the owners, then claiming Poch would be a great manager as he's very shrewd in the transfer market. You can't have it both ways, mate.

9.) 18 Oct 2017 14:23:06
Apologies, Schmid. I misread your post. Cancel my last 😀.

10.) 18 Oct 2017 15:39:01
Stevie, time for your nap.

11.) 18 Oct 2017 17:52:35
No problem Stevie. I just think that mourinho might have expected more from the owners and Woodward. But it's their business and they'll run it as they wish I suppose. I don't like the owners or Woodward one bit, but there's nothing we can do about it. Pochettino on the other hand is used to working on a budget and that might suit the Glazers and their puppet or shall I say Muppet.
Jred, since mourinho came in, city and PSG and even Barcelona with a transfer ban have out spent us. But the point is City, PSG and Barcelona already had better teams and squads and we're playing catchup for all the years that we didn't compete, no value in the market etc etc. So the onus is on us to buy the best when they're available, but sadly this doesn't happen. We spent £75m on a striker and created a big fanfare. City spent over £110m on two full backs. Then they went and spent another £30m on another fullback in danillo just to sit on the bench. They have de bruyne, Silva, gundogan, fernandinho, yaya, sane and they still felt the need to spend over £45m on Bernardo Silva who will walk into any side in the PL.
The point is, these clubs have owners who are genuinely interested in football. They'll do anything to ensure the best players are playing for them. Can you or any United fan genuinely believe that the Glazers have the same footballing ambition of the City or PSG owners? Not in a million years.

12.) 18 Oct 2017 22:20:03
Too much vinho verde, Tony. Never too proud to admit when I get it wrong, tho. I give Schmid a hard enough time over his views on certain aspects of the club, never mind when i'm too drunk to read his post properly 😀.



16 Oct 2017 15:03:45
A lot made of city's 7 goals at the weekend, they had a front line
Sterling Jesus and sane, sterling is the oldest at 22 years old .
How would them 3 do in the United team and how would our 2 young lads martial and rash do in the city team?


1.) 16 Oct 2017 15:57:59
Good point Jred,

Jesus is probably the best of the lot but I don't think there's much between Rashford, Martial, Sane and Sterling.

I think Sane would be great for us whilst I obviously haven't seen as much of him as the Utd lads he seems to be more of a natural wide player than Rashford or Martial. He's left footed so maybe he could play on the right wing instead of Mata to add some pace and penetration to our team?

I think Martial would be fantastic in the City side given Pep's inclination for attacking football. He'd play higher up the pitch and be given more licence in that left channel to run at players and create things. The same could be said for Rashford.

2.) 16 Oct 2017 21:20:32
Good point about martial Danny. I said before if he's forced to play as a traditional left winger, ie to track back and cover the whole touchline, then he won't prosper. He's a wide attacker/ inverted winger (or whatever you want to call it these days), who's also arguably our best finisher, and he needs to be played to his strengths.

And having poor excuses for left backs behind him makes matters worse.
That said, he can definitely try harder at times.

3.) 16 Oct 2017 22:11:31
Martial doesn't make enough selfish runs to play in a pep team, prefers the ball to feet too much.

4.) 17 Oct 2017 12:45:52
Martial is lazy and whilst he remains so he won't get any better. Has the ability but lazy.



14 Oct 2017 17:22:27
Can you imagine if we had just been beat by c palace.


1.) 14 Oct 2017 18:12:16
Can you imagine if we played well and beat Liverpool.

{Ed025's Note - can you imagine if you tried to win?..

2.) 14 Oct 2017 18:32:25
Imagine if superpool were good enough to break down our awful awful team.

{Ed025's Note - your team were thoroughly boring deano and seeing as its supposed to be an entertainment industry they were a disgrace mate..swap special one for snoring one ..

3.) 14 Oct 2017 18:47:25
Can you imagine not being unbeaten at the start of the season in the middle of October 😆😆.

4.) 14 Oct 2017 18:48:48
I'm not defending our performance ed it was dreadful I agree but Liverpool hardly set the game on fire either.

{Ed025's Note - they bhave been poor for a while deano, which beggars the question ...why did,nt you go for it?..

5.) 14 Oct 2017 18:50:44
That was a terrible performance by us. Truly embarrassing how we set up today and it was not good enough.

Very disappointed with that display against a team that have been very poor of late.

{Ed025's Note - i totally agree angel..

6.) 14 Oct 2017 19:36:08
I think everyone looked knackered, other results have shown this to be a very odd weekend.

7.) 14 Oct 2017 19:38:48
I have no answer ed I cannot really understand our performance especially 2nd half it was laughable but look at the words I'm using "laughable" yet they still didn't win and also Klopp could quite easily have sacrificed a body in midfield and bought on another attacker to put us to the sword but he didn't and the bloke never gets a word said against him.

The tit has come out saying that jose couldn't approach a game like that if he was Liverpool manager big talk for a club that have won sod all for 8 years.

8.) 14 Oct 2017 19:48:38
I agree Ed. They were there for the taking. The reason we were so disappointing isn't because Liverpool were so good it's because we never gave it a go.

{Ed025's Note - spot on mate..

9.) 14 Oct 2017 20:34:49
I maybe mistaken but we played like a time fighting to stay up. Yeah a point at Anfield isn’t too bad, but if we had actually played our we normally play, I think the result would have been different. Even LVG made sure the Liverpool games were entertaining.

{Ed025's Note - it was awful to watch mad hatter..



14 Oct 2017 11:41:11
Really fancy us for the win today don't think / hope we will be as defensive as some think but do expect a disciplined performance .

Few injured today.


{Ed025's Note - disciplined performace = defend and try and catch them on the break jred, i think united are making a rod for their own back mate by inviting liverpool to attack them, its what they are best at..

1.) 14 Oct 2017 11:56:07
They leave a lot of space down the channels and you can get at there cbs.
Would expect a solid performance but I hope we control the ball rather than sitting with 6 at the back which we saw a lot last season .
We should be able to control the ball then again it's Liverpool United form tends to go out the window .
Goals in both teams tho.

{Ed025's Note - i think utd could have made a statement of intent with a more attacking side jred, but i suppose we will see at the end mate..

2.) 14 Oct 2017 12:12:53
Ed025, In your opinion why is this a more attacking side? How could this be made any more defensive? I think this is as defensive as it can get.

{Ed025's Note - you read me wrong sydney, its a very defensive side mate which is a mistake against a side devoid of confidence like liverpool, i would have liked to have seen mata and rashford in the side myself..

3.) 14 Oct 2017 12:23:58
Oh sorry Ed025, yes it's a set up where when defending it's a parked double decker bus, when attacking it'll be like the red arrows. Hope the plan works. We'll see mate.

{Ed025's Note - we will sydney mate, i just hope its not an opportunity missed..

4.) 14 Oct 2017 12:42:05
Well at least it's not 6 at the back.

5.) 14 Oct 2017 13:53:02
Agree with ed025. Liverpool are good going forward and not great at defending. So it's not as easy as some are making out. Blinkers off please.

{Ed025's Note - its more chess than football this schmid..



30 Sep 2017 19:24:32
4 more goals and a clean sheet can't ask for much more .
Would of loved a city Chelsea draw but it wasn't to be .
City gave Chelsea a bit of a football lesson today.


1.) 30 Sep 2017 19:55:36
Yeah it's the 6th time already this season we've scored 4 in a game. Incredible threat that we pose.

Watched the city Chelsea game, for the lesson that they gave them, they didn't really trouble courtois too much. Took a special goal from De Bruyne to get the job done.

I can't wait to play them, I think we will give them endless problems. Otamendi and Stones weren't tested at all today. Once Morata went off, Chelsea had no outlet.

2.) 30 Sep 2017 20:21:59
They weren't tested because city controlled the game . lampard was spot on when he said Chelsea where out classed .
Chelsea defended well, are a well organised team but couldn't get out there half at times .
You can get at city, space behind there full backs and infront of there cbs but you have to get the ball and keep it . 65% possession against Chelsea away and outclassed them today .
The derby is going to be great 2 good teams this year.

3.) 30 Sep 2017 21:32:02
As I said, for a team that outclassed Chelsea and outplayed them, they didn't really trouble courtois. Only for de Bruynes special moment that would have been a draw.

4.) 30 Sep 2017 21:48:01
I would love to see both Rashford and Martial playing against City. As jred says, there's room in behind the full backs. Hit them with pace and movement and you could really cause the CBs problems. Mata over Mhki too because of his intelligence.

5.) 30 Sep 2017 22:20:53
It wasn't a draw tho they got the win good teams tend to do that.

6.) 30 Sep 2017 23:47:04
I hate to say it, but against another top team, and the reigning champions, that was as good a performance as I've seen. Made a good Chelsea team look very ordinary.

7.) 01 Oct 2017 07:03:58
Yeah but they didn't test Courtois Stevie. It's ok playing the other team off he park and taking the win but what's the point if you don't test the keeper?

8.) 01 Oct 2017 07:45:20
What I'm saying AJH is that I feel city will have those games where they might dominate but will not win. I just felt the magic moment from Dr Bruyne saved them yesterday.

Their performance was of course fantastic. But without aguero for a bit, I think they've lost their main goalscorer.

The moment Morata went off yesterday Chelsea didn't try anything after that. Just sat back. And I think city were struggling with him up until that point.

I think we will beat them.

9.) 01 Oct 2017 08:21:29
There won't be many teams do that to Chelsea this season and they where well on top before morals went off .
Chelsea lost the midfield could like with the movement and press of city .
Couldn't keep the ball or live with it .

10.) 01 Oct 2017 08:56:26
Yeah it was a good performance jred. Great possession stats.

I still think we beat them.

11.) 01 Oct 2017 09:13:59
Hard to say either way, tough game.

12.) 01 Oct 2017 12:24:23
Agree its a tough call. A lot will depend on who is unavailable for either side. City would miss aguero a lot even though jesus is there and i think we will need our best players available in key positions to be at our best. A lot of games before that too so too many variables to between now and then to make a good prediction at this point.
The derby is not in my thoughts at this time for united the only game that matters at this point is the next one not the game in a couple of months time. If we keep our form as it is until then then i'd back jose and united every time because i'm biased.

13.) 01 Oct 2017 13:14:29
Chelsea is a very difficult place to go to and very hard to break down. I thought city were superb and yes it was a special goal but it looked like only one team was going to win it after Morata went off.
Chelsea even when losing and at home had so many players behind the ball and that says something about city.

14.) 01 Oct 2017 16:47:07
We will beat Pool, Spurs, Chelsea and the dirty blues before Christmas and come New Year we’ll be in a great position. I honestly don’t fear anyone, even though we have plenty of ways to improve further ourselves. Even City with their lovely football, as they and the rest are all pretty sh*t at the back and we will cause them all real problems, and I trust Jose to get his tactics correct.

He set up solid and to hit them on the break, like a lot of people suggested.
It never work, after 32 goals in the previous 10 games the front line had a mare .
But it was no where near as negative as last season .
Jose kept a solid line up against a good attacking team .
The dire performance has as much to do with the players poor performance as it does the managers .
And the same goes for the previous 10 games .

Not in the least bit but that's what Jose does it's like complaining that fellaini heads the ball .
If you don't want Jose as manager fine, but don't say you do want him and then complain about him doing exactly what he does .
Put out a solid team, away from home against your biggest rival with key players missing . It's what he does

We drew a game get over it we didn't win a game stop sulking .
It's one game where we didn't play well.

We never set up like we did last season with a back 6 .
We set up solid against a good attacking team .
But our attacking players had poor games .
If lukaku Miki martial play well it looks a different plan, they never they had stinkers

32 goals we have scored in 11 games this season .
First 00, first time our attackers have a stinker dummies are out .

Fergy has gone we now have Jose and this is what he does .
Don't give it the " I'm a fan of Jose I support Jose " and then whine he does something Jose.

Truth is we have been fantastic this season with 1 bad game against the scouse . Which tends to happen truth they are rarely great games .

If lukaku takes his chance it's a different game if the scouse scored one it's a different game .
In fact in Miki or lukaku or Miki had of played well it would of looked a different game .
Buts that its and buts people need to move one 1 game in a fantastic start to the season.

Poor game to watch last night, I think we have seen a lot of them games away from home in europe .
Keep a clean sheet do enough to win .
Can be a bit painful to watch .

We scored 8 goals in 2 games before the international break but have looked a bit flat after it.
