Good thread below on the merits of selling Martial or not.
To be honest I thought jose would sell him and he was open to that as per ed002.
I wanted him to go on loan this season in the hope that playing every week at a high level la liga or serie a that he would come back a more rounded experienced player.

I think he has only started 3 league games this season and like all young players he has been inconsistent . He has done well in cl and league cup and off the bench I the league but is that enough to bring him on quickly enough.
He imo is one of the best close control dribblers in world football. He oozes talent but because of his demeanour he looks lazy at times and lacks intensity concentration and focus at times during matches.

Playing weekly his movement and decision making will improve dramatically ( this is what infuriates me when watching him) . This is where I think jose has a dilemma. Because rashford is in the exact same position.

We have 2 great young talents. But while they are learning and developing they will have as many unproductive games as productive couple that with our requirement to compete in the top comps its hard to develop both at the same time and give them enough starts and doubly difficult when they ideally want to play In the same position.

When both play together if they are both on an off day we look toothless but hot when they are on form we look hot but to be honest that's 50/ 50.
Time will tell but i don't see us developing both.


1.) 28 Nov 2017 19:52:06
Let's be honest developing kids isn't Jose strong point .
Jose has a lot of good traits but that's not one of them .
Tonight is the 11th game martial has started this season with another 8 from the bench .
Lads still only 21 so not doing to bad.

2.) 28 Nov 2017 22:34:12
Nice goal too.

3.) 29 Nov 2017 09:46:08
Martial is on a different planet to Rashford. He has speed, control, sange-froide and great vision. Rashford has speed. But is otherwise a car crash.

4.) 29 Nov 2017 12:50:18
I like rash but martial is a step up imo .
Can't believe people are talking about selling a young talented player like this.
Or saying he will never be a top player or has a poor attitude.

The lad is 21 still has a lot to learn but has absolute bags of talent.

5.) 29 Nov 2017 14:01:06
You really don't rate him that highly Ken do you?

I know he can be inconsistent, I'm going to put that down to age but even on a bad day, he is genuinely one of our only players that has the ability to go past a man and do something incredible. I think we would suffer offensively if he were to be sold or sent out on loan.

He of course needs to iron out the inconsistencies but for me he has to be kept, he is in that bracket of top top players (right jred) I understand now lol, and every young player has inconsitent spells. Just look at Raheem Sterling.

6.) 29 Nov 2017 15:16:58
I think Rashford. Is going backwards in his development. Is it because he is regular in the first team now and feels that's it
I've made it.
And please could we have lukaku playing in Velcro kit, the ball might stick to him then, He has been woeful of late.
Good display by lindelof tho.
Rock the red.

7.) 29 Nov 2017 17:11:28
Martial looks a talent looks a threat and season looks up for it .

For his age and position I don't see much better out there .
You have to give these young lads a chance .
To be fair to Jose he has so this season with martial.
Looks better playing striker as well, that's where the lad himself wants to play .

8.) 29 Nov 2017 19:54:11
Why sell a player for £80 mil that would cost us £150mil to get close to replacing him?

9.) 29 Nov 2017 21:39:48
Please lay off Rashford as he is a young kid and will have ups and downs. Also he is under a lot of pressure knowing he has Martial Lukaku and Ibra fir competition in his preferred role as central striker. His end product is generally very good. Cut him some slack.

10.) 30 Nov 2017 09:14:55
The problem is that Jose appears under pressure to always play Rashford as he is being positioned as a locally grown brand. He is not technically good enough to make it. Won't be best option is to take advantage of the elevated pricing for young stars and sell him now, focusing on Martial.

11.) 30 Nov 2017 11:10:51
Angel. I do rate him. I've said above and have always said that he has a dribbling talent that is nearly unrivalled. I never advocated selling him although I thought jose would sell him because he is not know for his patience with young players.
I think the issue is we have 2 players that play I the same position so it would be difficult to get them both enough game time to develop both quickly enough from the club's point if view but akso from their point of view. Martial will only improve with experience like all young players. I thought he would struggle for game time under jose like 40 starts and if he does get 40 starts rash won't so it will be difficult to get both up to speed and keep them happy.

12.) 30 Nov 2017 11:54:19
You argued with me last season he would never be a top player .
Round about the time you where posting Jose would sell him .

13.) 30 Nov 2017 20:16:20
Jred you have a more select memory than Boris Johnson.
You argued that cattermole was as good as matic.
Jose was open to selling him as we know.
I have been 100% consistent on martial. He is getting more game time than I thought he would and has done very well this season in some games and has as the manner said improved both his play and his application so fair play to him it's paying dividends for him and the team.

Fair play to the manger for getting more out of him and fair play to the player who by his own admission was not concentrating fully on his game last year.

14.) 30 Nov 2017 21:42:59
Of course you have Ken, can't imagine why anyone would think differently .

Bags of talent will be a top player imo.

15.) 30 Nov 2017 21:58:17
Matic cattermole doh . Lol like I've had to say before I was pretty drunk the one time I posted that .
I was trying to make a very drunken point . Badly .

16.) 30 Nov 2017 22:44:14
Phones laptops tablets and guns. should never be in the possession of a drunken man lol xx.

17.) 01 Dec 2017 08:41:50
To he fair it's not like i went on about it for a full season.

18.) 02 Dec 2017 03:33:32
Both are young and run into blind alleys, time is the only cure.



28 Nov 2017 01:25:27
20 man squad reported for tomorrow miki, fellaini and shaw not named in squad darmian blind and jessie included.
Is fellaini injured? Or perhaps he is saving him for the arsenal game. Shaw and miki appear to be in the bad books.


1.) 28 Nov 2017 11:14:31
Wenger doesn't like to play against physical teams so fellaini is a good option for us against arsenal.

Id have still taken him for watford though.

2.) 28 Nov 2017 13:36:43
Fellaini was limping bad against Brighton. Definitely got injured. Hopefully he's back for Arsenal game though.



13 Nov 2017 10:10:05
Good morning ed002.
I know you said we had looked had 4 potential left wingers and that is the priority above greizman. Can you enlighten us as to who the 4 potential options are that we have looked at?
Does the club not see martial or rashford filling that left sided role long term?
Thanks Ed.


{Ed002's Note -
Gareth Bale (LW) - Will be offered to Manchester United but I think will be priced out of a move when his injuries are taken in to account
Jose Arnaiz (LW) - viable option
Marco Asensio (LW) - unlikely because Madrid want to keep him - which will be easier if Bale goes
Ivan Perisic (LW) - Manchester United could yet return

1.) 13 Nov 2017 11:26:28
Thanks ed.
Bales injury record has got to be a concern for an suitors.
Asensio its hard to see him moving
ARNAIZ I know little about ill try and remedy that this morning.
Perisic is in great form for inter so i hope that deal can be revived.
Appreciate your response 002. Have a good day.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

2.) 13 Nov 2017 11:49:10
Ed, I think it was in the summer you mentioned that Forsberg was someone we had looked at, could he be added to the list above or have we moved on from him now also? Thanks for the info anyway Ed and correct me if I'm wrong about Forsberg, memory's a little hazy.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United have watched Forsberg on a number of occasions, as have Arsenal, but I am not aware of any approach to his club or to Cetinkaya, who also represents Lindelof.}

3.) 13 Nov 2017 15:14:30
Arnaiz? Interesting choice, asensio
Looks a real talent would be surprised if Madrid let him slip through there fingers although reports are saying 180 mil so you never know, not sure he is a winger .
Perisic just signed a new contract will soon be 29 .
3 very different players.



20 Oct 2017 18:35:26
Hi ed002. I read a report today saying that fellaini had rejected a new contract offer made to him by united. Do you know if there is any truth in that? Do you think he still wants to leave or that he will sign up for a couple more years? Cheers.


{Ed002's Note - Yes. The damage was done over the summer when he lost the move he wanted to Turkey - he is at an age where he wants to be in the side each week.}

1.) 21 Oct 2017 11:23:05
On a similar topic we have, according to reports 8 players who could leave in summer for free: how many / who do you think could stay or go?
Carrick, young and zlatan in summer, with fellaini, shaw in January.

2.) 21 Oct 2017 12:56:40
Is only be qorries about Herrera, mata and Young aa fhe others are now too old or reqching towards the end of their careers.

3.) 21 Oct 2017 14:48:37
think blind will stay as he does what is asked, mata and herrera though are worrying: much could depend on who is being looked at-others as said are coming to the twilight of their careers or want minutes on the pitch.

4.) 21 Oct 2017 12:54:49
Cheers ed.

5.) 21 Oct 2017 17:14:19
Would be comfortable with all 8 of them leaving in the summer, don’t think any of them are good enough to see us get to where we want to be, none of them would get in the city team and that’s our biggest challenge.

6.) 24 Oct 2017 23:22:20
John O'Shea wouldn't have got into too many other top teams, either, but still played a solid part in our success. What's wrong with having good, solid squad players as back up? We all know we can't have 25 worldies.



13 Oct 2017 11:11:27
Ed002 can i ask you if manchester united have a serious interest in signing danny rose? And if so do you think a move would be possible in jan?
It would be pretty high risk imo as he has not played since last jan and had a knee op in may i think. a really good player at his best but can he recapture that form? Cheers.


{Ed002's Note - Yes Ken, Manchester United are very keen on Danny Rose and would like a deal in January - whether or not Spurs will be open to that I don't know at this time, but for the right deal I suspect they may be.}

1.) 13 Oct 2017 12:46:10
Thanks ed.

2.) 13 Oct 2017 14:18:12
Does that mean Mourinho has given up on shaw or atleast he doesn't see the improvement in him which he expected.

{Ed002's Note - I would not read anything like that in to the interest Singh.}

3.) 13 Oct 2017 16:40:28
Jose does like two good players in each position. And maybe he feels a challenge might spark him into life.

4.) 14 Oct 2017 07:33:28
Oh okay thanks ed.

{Ed002's Note - Remember in the summer Rose was injured so it makes sense to look again. The other two he likes are young - Aaron Martin from Espanyol (be a giant step up) and Kieran Tierney (not available).}

5.) 14 Oct 2017 08:33:17
What about Tierney at Celtic ed? Is there any interest there?

{Ed002's Note - A number of clubs have shown interest including MU, but he is not the target.}

6.) 14 Oct 2017 15:39:55
Manchester United will stick with what hey have defensively as I've heard, rose will Be too costly and Tierney is waiting for his preferred club as o have heard, but who knows money talks.

7.) 14 Oct 2017 14:25:19
Sorry ed. The post above Tierney wasn't there when I asked the question.

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}

Anybody care to hazard a guess as to which player has the most yellow cards in champions league history?


1.) 07 Dec 2017 21:59:14
Gattuso or Vidal maybe?

2.) 07 Dec 2017 22:02:07

3.) 07 Dec 2017 22:07:46
Ramos? Dirty fekker.

4.) 07 Dec 2017 22:26:37
Our very own Paul scholes😂😂 32. I couldn't believe it when I read it today on his wikopeda.

5.) 07 Dec 2017 23:24:20
Paul scholes is up there as one of my ALL time legends. He was an animal.

6.) 08 Dec 2017 02:44:27
The greatest lie the devil ever told, was to convince the world that Paul Scholes couldn't tackle! So many of those yellows were probably border line red cards. Clever little fecker 😂.

7.) 08 Dec 2017 08:17:51
Ramos has 33 :)

8.) 08 Dec 2017 14:21:15
Great line from Scholes recently as a pundit on BT. The presenter commenting on a bad tackle said "that was one of yours Paul". Scholes replied "no, he got up"

9.) 08 Dec 2017 17:40:12
Could be true oxford the article I read is a year old but scholes got booked nearly every second game and missed a final. My second fav united player of all time.

10.) 08 Dec 2017 22:18:31
Who is your first ken? I have an equal top 3.

11.) 09 Dec 2017 15:54:52
Robson scholes hughes.



06 Dec 2017 15:14:30
I watched the Chelsea game last night.
I saw a very different side to Griezman. He works so hard for the team dropping into defencive areas to help out and his transition from defence to attack is fantastic. A real team player. He is a jose type player based on last night's game. Very tactically astute coupled with great technical ability
I know ed002 said don't hold our breath for greizman but i really hope we can get him into iour squad.


1.) 06 Dec 2017 15:27:00
His work rate was great last night ken. Playing in a Simeone team means every player has to do there but defensively so that would make him a perfect player for Jose. I really really hope we go all out for him and he has that creative quality that we lack at times. Martial has really stepped up but he’s nowhere near the finished article. Griezmann would change our attack and he would be our Sanchez or hazard. Ed did mentions Barcelona is more likely but I hope we do anything to secure his signature.

2.) 06 Dec 2017 16:00:52
Work rate is one of the best parts of his game stands out every time I've watched him .

3.) 06 Dec 2017 17:28:17
Was at the game Ken. Griezmann is special. Work rate incredible and not sure he misplaced a pass.

But I was in awe of hazard. What a player.

4.) 06 Dec 2017 17:58:24

When Hazard became available (like Aguero) was that when there was yet again no value in the market?

Has a wonderful talent but I sense he needs to be slightly more consistent .

5.) 06 Dec 2017 18:59:32
Red man, yeah, that famous line.

Yes, I feel he could score and assist an awful lot more because he has all attributes. He needs to have a season like Ronaldo did for us before he left, before he can be considered among the top bracket.

6.) 07 Dec 2017 17:24:12
Hazard has been pretty consistent though, guys. I agree he doesn't score or assist as much as Messi and Ronaldo, but he creates a LOT of chances. He's always got 2 or 3 people marking him, and still he keeps on making the difference.
Look at the chance he gifted Willian against Atletico. That should be an assist Evert every damn time, but Willian messed up the finish. What Chelsea really have to do is get another top attack in so that defenses can't fully focus on Eden. Maybe then the stats would reflect the impact he has on games.



05 Dec 2017 21:41:30
Not paranoid ote anything but I bet we get madrid or bayern. city will get basle😂.


1.) 05 Dec 2017 21:56:06
Perfect time to play Madrid if there ever is one ken 😂. But I agree I have this feeling we will draw one of the big boys.

2.) 05 Dec 2017 22:15:11
Wouldn't be against Madrid on form.

3.) 05 Dec 2017 22:39:06
Game is not for 2 months. A lot can happen before then.

4.) 06 Dec 2017 08:08:29
Does it really matter who you get

You have to play the best teams eventually if your going to win it.



05 Dec 2017 19:10:10
Any live chat tonight eds?


{Ed033's Note - yes, at the usual url = Man Utd Chat

1.) 05 Dec 2017 21:37:06
Thanks ed.



03 Dec 2017 14:29:17
I wonder will they appeal the red card according to a couple of refs on sly today there is merit in appealing.
1 he was not out of control
2 he nicked the ball and landed on bellerin
3 bellerin was in a totally unorthodox position
So it much be just downgraded to yellow but it's a long shot.


1.) 03 Dec 2017 15:02:50
I'd be very surprised if it wasn't appealed. I said at the time he got the ball first and once stretched you cannot pull out of challenge, naturally you'll follow through, just so happened for whatever reason Bellerin was laying there. That being said I'd be shocked if it's overturned. They generally like to back the ref. It wasn't deliberate, but it was avoidable. That being said he had every right to go for the ball which he actually got.

We'll appeal and it will be rejected I think.

{Ed004's Note - I agree. Nothing to lose appealing it but it was a red card no matter how unfortunate it was}

2.) 03 Dec 2017 15:24:46
I would be surprised if they appeal it red card all day long for me.

3.) 03 Dec 2017 15:57:45
Agree we should appeal but when was the last time the FA did United any favours?

{Ed004's Note - Not banning Lukaku}

4.) 03 Dec 2017 16:05:43
I would appeal it because if he does get an extra game ban for a frivelous appeal, he would only miss the league cup game against bristol city as well as the 3 league games he'd already miss.

{Ed002's Note - It would be a dumb thing to do. Clubs need to act responsibly regardless of their stupid fans.}

5.) 03 Dec 2017 16:39:12
it needs to be a unanimous decision by the panel and no way would that appeal get a unanimous vote. i would even wish to appeal the man of the match award. how did DDG not get it?

6.) 03 Dec 2017 17:05:09
It was a clear red card, he could have broken his leg. Why appeal it?

7.) 03 Dec 2017 18:03:18
That's true Ed, but that was marginal.

8.) 03 Dec 2017 18:42:28
It surely won't be overturned but I do think there's a case that Bellerin's leg was in a completely unnatural position and, in the split second that a player has to decide to go for the ball or pull out, that unexpected element may have deceived Pogba. In any event, had Bellerin been in a normal position, there is no way that challenge would have been worthy of a red.

9.) 03 Dec 2017 19:53:29
A straight red In that context ajh is for serious foul or dangerous play. There was boo intent no aggression in the tackle it was unfortunate. I thought red at the time but after listening to the comments today he may have a case super slow mo makes it look like he left his foot in but in real time he removed it as soon as possible. It was totally accidental imo. But that said I don't think it will be over turned.

10.) 04 Dec 2017 10:08:57
No point appealing, take the 3 and move on, be more likely to get an extra game for his childish applauding on the way off.

11.) 04 Dec 2017 16:25:52
I think it was a clear red and you got away with the lukaku incident by we got away with mignolet, I just want consistency that’s the joke with the FA no consistency it gives fans a chance to feel aggrieved if one gets away with it and another doesn’t.

We were an amazing double sane away groom a draw and 2 stupid mistakes cost us. Just like they did arsenal last week. Ddg was a lot busier last week. Apart from rom nobody had a terrible game our squad is thin I midfield and without pogba we lack creativity.
I dint think there is much chance of them surrendering their lead but we are in 3 cups and have a huge tight league campaign ahead of us lots to look forward to imo.
