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!



16 Feb 2018 20:37:20
Rumour is bailly is back tomorrow.


1.) 16 Feb 2018 21:53:03
Maybe trying to get a game into him before seville match. We have missed him let's hope he has an injury free run from here on in.



16 Jan 2018 13:30:29
Ed is the Short Term Cost Control rule proving to be an issue with the Sanchez deal?


{Ed002's Note - I don't understand your question Jred. Sorry.}

1.) 16 Jan 2018 14:07:54
Is it true Ed that it’s just a case of Miki agreeing terms with arsenal?

{Ed002's Note - Not "just a case".}



15 Jan 2018 13:27:03
Ed is it true that arsenal want martial.


{Ed025's Note - they are losing sanchez, ozil and probably walcott jred so they will need replacements of high quality, im sure the likes of martial will come into the equation but i have not heard that it will be him specifically mate..

1.) 15 Jan 2018 13:59:45
Cheers ed.

2.) 15 Jan 2018 14:05:28
I think City will take Sanchez in the end especially if Arsenal can't get the player (s) they want in exchange from us. We are a rival to Arsenal's top 4 aspirations so doesn't make sense for them to strengthen us and weaken their own chances. Catching City is out of their scope this year.

3.) 15 Jan 2018 14:09:43
City are only out of range for 3/ 4 months then it’s a meek playing field next season, so City are still a rival club they’d be selling too.

4.) 15 Jan 2018 15:24:09
I certainly wouldn't want Sanchez if it will cost us Martial. Martial's potential is huge.

5.) 15 Jan 2018 15:25:05
Id be fustrated if we let martial leave to get sanchez he's played well on the left. Has been one of our better performers.

6.) 15 Jan 2018 15:47:56
Totally agree if its the case of losing Martial then i am definitely against signing Sanchez.

7.) 15 Jan 2018 15:52:08
Doubt we'd let martial go. And arsenal ain't a rival for top 4.

8.) 15 Jan 2018 15:53:37
can't see jose letting martial go. His ceiling of potential is massive and in 2-3 years I expect real to come calling for him. It was be a massive step down for him to go to arsenal who are in turmoil so I think it is just the media stirring to sell copies. I don't doubt arsenal have interest in him but I cannot see us including him in any deal to bring sanchez in.

9.) 15 Jan 2018 16:27:04
Please tell me and assure me Martial WILL NOT LEAVE with this Sanchez deal?

Massive backwards step if this happens!

10.) 15 Jan 2018 18:01:51
A lot of reports United knocked the swap deal with martial back.

11.) 15 Jan 2018 18:24:09
I can't see anyway that martial will be let go. You can see he has magic in his feet. I'm hoping that working with a player like sanchez will help martial realise his potential. Sanchez has such good movement off the ball, it's an area where martial needs to improve so if martial wants to improve and I'm sure he does then he has an opporrunity to work with a 1st class operator every day so he will learn. Rash too for that matter.

I think the attacking part of our squad is in pretty good shape. 2 players with huge potential in rash and martial. Lukaku a more than decent goal scorer but pretty inexperienced in European competition. Mata a pretty solid and experienced pro. Jessie on fire. Sanchez adds great experience and that extra goal threat and touch of class and magic.

Miki looks to be a goner and ibra looks to be finished so the chance to get a player of the pedigree of sanchez is amazing imo.



14 Jan 2018 11:20:05
Talk Sanchez hasn't travelled with the arsenal squad? Trying to push through a move to United after city bailed at the price?


1.) 14 Jan 2018 11:31:41
He hasn't travelled hopefully this can be put to bed by this evening either way.

2.) 14 Jan 2018 12:41:09
It’s BSI g reported that Arsenal players believe he is going to Utd.

3.) 14 Jan 2018 12:41:38
It is being reported that Arsenal players believe he is going to Utd.

4.) 14 Jan 2018 13:14:53
Ozil hasn't travelled either. Surely Not?

5.) 14 Jan 2018 19:58:12
Ironic if city have bailed at the Price.

6.) 14 Jan 2018 22:25:04
Would love them both to come wouldn't mind mykie going other way then but would hsne a top squad with sanchez lingard/ mykie/ ozil and rash/ martial behind lukaku add a cm or cb would be massive upgrade.

United last won the CL in 2008 Ronaldo Rooney and co . What an attacking team that was .

We played 13 games in the CL that year.
Drew 4
And scored more than 1 goal in only 4 games.


1.) 22 Feb 2018 11:23:58
I don't think that says a great deal to be honest.
It was a different time, I seem to remember there being far more great defenders back then. I struggle to name 5 genuinely world class defenders nowadays. Certainly when you compare the defenders back then to the best of today you are left thinking that we don't have many great ones now.

When you think David Luiz regularly makes lists of the top ten best centre backs in the world you have to realise there aren't many good defenders.

2.) 22 Feb 2018 11:31:13
Lol yer that must be the reason .
But every game was amazing Ronaldo tevez and co it was goals goals goals . 9 games out of 13 we scored 1 or less goals .

3.) 22 Feb 2018 11:41:20
Sevilla have conceded more goals in the UCL this season than any other team still in the competition.
They have conceded more goals than they have scored in La Liga so far this season giving them a negative goal difference.
They have averaged 13 shots a game in the UCL before last nights game where they managed 29 which has brought their average shots up to 16.

They were not a team that deserved the kind of respect we showed last night.

4.) 22 Feb 2018 11:51:03
We had a much better defence back then jred. That team could have ‘parked the bus’ and won games. We are relying on a shocking defence to save us nowadays. Statistics can often be misleading without context. There is so much talent in this squad and Jose is simply not playing to it’s strengths or getting the best out of it. We showed far too much respect to Sevilla last night whilst spurs when to Juve and went toe to toe with them and dominated them in their own back yard. The difference is one manager encourages his team to press and pressure the opposition, whilst another is happy to sit back, hold structure and invite pressure. Yesterday was unacceptable and I refuse to accept it was a good result.

5.) 22 Feb 2018 12:04:19
Shappy you missed of " in my opinion"
On your post .
But that's moving off topic .

6.) 22 Feb 2018 12:16:36
I said a long time ago there wasn’t any decent defenders anymore. Not one world class centre half anywhere. Fullbacks who can’t defend and couldn’t cross a t.

7.) 22 Feb 2018 12:21:51
They aren't a great team jred, what will they win this season? Nothing, they might not even finish in the UCL places in La Liga, a league many consider a two team league.

Their best player Nzonzi wants to leave and spent most of January trying to move to either Arsenal or Everton apparently.

Are you saying that unless we played in the manner we did there was no other chance of us getting that result of better?

There was no need for us to play in the manner we did to get a result there.
People talk is if a 0-0 draw is a good result away from home. It's not. A score draw at Old Trafford and we are out.

It's probably better to lose 3-2 away and have two away goals than to not take a single away goal back home for the second leg.

A 0-0 result away from home is a massive gamble on the second leg. We have three games between now and then, there is every chance we could pick up one or two key injuries before we play Sevilla again. Then will the gamble of not trying to score an away goal seem like a clever move?

8.) 22 Feb 2018 12:24:07
A shocking defence that has kept 19 clean sheets .

9.) 22 Feb 2018 12:28:26
That's Jose boys not pretty but it does work .
Again can't remember people moaning in 2008 when we had the dream team team of Ronaldo tevez Rooney.
And ground out a good few results in Europe.
Scholes lampard ferdy bang on the money last night imo .
Poor game to watch tho but I've seen that a lot over the years .

10.) 22 Feb 2018 12:47:02
No I haven't said that are a great team .
I haven't said that was the only way to play .

But to set up not to conced away from home in the last 16 of the CL isn't the worse tho g in the world .

Problem is people always thing they know better.

What has nzonzi got to do with anything when deciding what tactics to play? Eh

Fergy set up not to conced plenty of times .
Crap game to watch tho .

People patince are starting to wear thin with Jose.
Why because he is doing what he has always done?
Lot of people didn't want Jose at the club because of his brand of footy at previous clubs .
But that the Jose way surprised some have just realised.

11.) 22 Feb 2018 12:48:22
But don't forget fergy never set up not to conced there where just better defenders back then .

12.) 22 Feb 2018 12:50:35
Jred yes we have kept 19 clean sheets and how much is that down to us playing defensive insipid football? Like I said statistics are misleading. We may have the most clean sheets but I wouldn’t say man for man we have the best defence in the league. I would take spurs back 4 over ours. Statistically we may have been the best but I think a lot of that has been to how incredible De Gea has been.

13.) 22 Feb 2018 13:11:58
The 19 clean sheets is a smoke screen, we have been sitting 2 midfielder in front of the back 4 and de gea has helped out a lot with that stat.
The team going forward is suffering.
Lvg didn't trust smalling, either does Jose, but smalling is still there.

14.) 22 Feb 2018 13:20:36
Good points jred.

15.) 22 Feb 2018 13:42:29
Here we go with the fergie did it defense, fergie never setup to achieve a draw for 90 mins in his 25+ years here, we always tried to win at some point in the game. I can show you 3 games in 1.5 seasons from mourinho where we did not cross the half way line for atleast 80+ mins in the game with a draw being the only goal, I am sure Fergie did this routinely.

16.) 22 Feb 2018 14:13:47
And CSM i am sure Fergie won 20 CL titles in his 25 years in charge.

17.) 22 Feb 2018 14:28:41
Worse h
Game of footy I ever saw live Monaco v United.
19 clean sheets is not my opinion it's a fact .
2nd in the league is not my opinion it's a fact .
Not great to watch is my opinion.

Juve have set up not to conced for the last 10 year . It happens.

People have rose tinted glasses they think Ronaldo and co just blew teams away game after game in Europe.
Just didn't happen.
But there where better defenders back then .

Crap game to watch no question.

18.) 22 Feb 2018 14:47:45
Jred yes we have kept 19 clean sheets and how much is that down to us playing defensive insipid football?

Spurs have scored 1 more goal than us the scouse and city are the only other teams to score more goals than United in the league . Who are playing defensive inspid football .
It that an overreaction?
We have an awful back 4 . And yet have 19 clean sheets and the best defensive record in the league.
Is that an overreaction.

19.) 22 Feb 2018 15:06:56
Jred, do you believe and be honest we will finish in the top 4.
I don't think we will but hope I'm wrong.

{Ed025's Note - 4th for me leahy..

20.) 22 Feb 2018 17:39:47
Leahy 100% pal.

21.) 22 Feb 2018 15:55:26
Fair enough ed. I think spurs will get in. I 5hink it's between us and Chelsea, big game next one could tell a lot.

{Ed025's Note - chelsea are in a similar situation for me leahy you both lose to teams you would expect to win against, in my view liverpool will get second then its a lottery for the last 2 places, the ones who stay in the remaining cup competitions the longest could well be the ones who miss out mate..



22 Feb 2018 09:41:32
5 teams in the last 16 of CL for the first time and I fancy all 5 to go through.


1.) 22 Feb 2018 10:33:08
Have you forgot who Chelsea play. The rest will probably go through.

2.) 22 Feb 2018 10:46:12
I think conte has the game to beat them or get a draw.

3.) 22 Feb 2018 10:58:05
A draw.



21 Feb 2018 21:37:57
Poor watch good result should do them at home .
Mc Tom grown up performance from him.


1.) 21 Feb 2018 22:02:10
Awful to watch. Ddg and Lukaku played well. mctominay lindelof did ok.
Valencia in particular was very poor tonight followed closely by young.
Matic gave the ball away a lot.
Great home crowd and atmosphere.
I thought Seville were wasteful and playing a team as passive as we were and not taking advantage will cost them
Typical jose style performace in europe or top side away.

2.) 21 Feb 2018 22:23:29
Valencia had a poor game as did Sanchez and Mata .
Sanchez tried a lot but never came off Mata needn't off been on the pitch .
Clean sheet job done but front 3 where poor tonight offered nothing really.



21 Feb 2018 18:17:55
A lot of rumours pogba on the bench tonight . I would be surprised if true.


1.) 21 Feb 2018 18:37:47
It's true alright jred. Jose showing who is boss with that.

2.) 21 Feb 2018 18:38:15
Me too a little. But why should we be surprised jred? You said yourself he has not been playing well.
You agreed with dropping him. The team won without him.
But I've said before nothing over surprises me with this united team.
I wouldn't be surprised if he played great and got man of the match.
I wouldn't be surprised if he lost his man again and cost us a goal and has a nightmare.
Hard to put a finger on it.
Maybe the lad is feeling the pressure and is not coping too well just at the moment.

3.) 21 Feb 2018 18:45:47
Confirmed. Scott keeps his place.

4.) 21 Feb 2018 18:46:17
Just got back from u19’s game. Very poor 1st half. They all look a million miles off the 1st team. I know it’s a learning curve but they need a good kick up the backside.

5.) 21 Feb 2018 18:52:16
I'm surprised because i didn't think Jose would drop him .
Not saying it's the wrong call he has been awful of late but thought Jose would of give him a chance to show what he can do .
That said looking at the team sheet it looks defensive to me .
Setting out not to keep it tight pinch a couple take it back to OT.

Big call tho to leave out a player of the profile of pogba in a big game like this and play mc Tom. Brand pogba won't like that as Jose knows rumours of a rift could well be true.

6.) 21 Feb 2018 19:15:02
Big call alright. To bee fair he had never been afraid to make the big calls and go his way. Big chance for herrera.
Im assuming shaw is injured not being on the bench.
Looking forward to the game even a little more now.
Got my tickets for the return leg this morning.



18 Feb 2018 08:02:55
“I don’t know if he’s out for a long and honestly I don’t care.

“I focus on the game and just on the game. I will think about Paul after the match. ”

Jose blunt and to the point on pogba.


1.) 18 Feb 2018 08:21:26
Sounds like he is fed up with all the press attention PP is getting. It made a difference yesterday as we had 3 deep midfielders. We scored on the break but we gave up a lot of possession and chances: if we do that to a better team we will get punished.

Has everything to be top class cm and run things from the centre of the park, apart from, at the moment desire and work rate .
Does he really want it? Does he really want it, does he want it enough to really put the hard graft in.
Or does he just want to look good, play the position he Likes and do the things he Likes.
Could be a great player but we are still staying could be .
Needs to show a bit more heart and fight imo.


{Ed001's Note - that I think hits the nail on the head, does he really want it enough?}

Read down the page I've said time and again it was a crap game .
And argued over and over this is a very talented squad .
I don't agree we need to buy 6 or 7 players it's an awful squad etc
Thats proved by our league position .
If we buy another 5 superstars will we suddenly start playing like barce or city? Not in my opinion .
Does that mean all our players need sold? Again not in my opinion .
But that's a different argument to " are we good to watch ". Are we effective yes like most Jose teams .
Good to watch, pleasing on the eye? I've never said that.

But there is a middle ground and as always it's never as bad as many make out and it's certainly never as good as some make out .
But this is the Jose way, he will do it his way, will it be great to watch, not imo .
