Bale rumors resurfacing and snowballing.


1.) 05 Oct 2016 08:19:13
And will probably just melt away like every other year.

2.) 05 Oct 2016 14:15:28
Makes perfect sense. Bale on the right. Rashford up front. Griezmann number 10. Martial on the left.

Got to love (hate) the tabloids.

{Ed004's Note - With Pogba behind them all obviously...}

Now THAT would be a front 5!

5.) 06 Oct 2016 12:57:48
With that front 5 we won't need midfield πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

6.) 12 Oct 2016 18:19:43
Jesus what a front 5 that would be 😍😍😍.

Apparently Zlatan deal is done pending a post Euro medical.


1.) 14 Jun 2016 15:41:06
This seems to be the worst kept secret since Jose Mourinho.

2.) 14 Jun 2016 15:44:50
I'm delighted with that news. Not everyone will be pleased but imo it will be a great signing. I'm hoping we see a lot from him and a great deal more from Bastian next season too those 2 senior pros could be the catalyst for a great season.

Utd signs Sadiq El Fitouri

Anderson Sold?

The fast food industry are said to be distraught.

2.) 30 Jan 2015 14:06:01
Haha mbd that's funny. sold lol



23 Oct 2014 17:24:15
So Victor Valdes is recuperating at utd. Interesting news .


1.) Rumour is he will be having a medical with a view to joining

2.) If Valdes regains fitness and signs, this is a perfect back-up option

3.) It will allow us to let Lindegaard go and get a bit of cash for him whilst signing an excellent replacement on the cheap.

4.) I am sure Valdes would add more to the wage bill per year then we would be able to get as a fee for Lindegaard.

We got Sevilla in round of 16.
First leg in spain. Not bad.


1.) 11 Dec 2017 14:58:49
Could be worse but could also be tricky, Goodluck lads I expect you to get through this one.

2.) 11 Dec 2017 18:02:47
good draw for you as well JBLP. I expect strong showing from the english teams this year. Could be all that we are playing for with City almost certainly winning the league.



07 Dec 2017 16:30:06
Was reading a report by one Jim White about how Old Trafford facilities are deteriorating and we are far behind on upgrades when compared to the other clubs.
Can our usual OT faithfuls here shed some light on this issue for me?


{Ed002's Note - I explained about this some time ago - maybe two or three years. Try searching on Ikea.}

Take a look at my post on 30th Nov in reply to Jred.

2.) 07 Dec 2017 23:43:44
Old Trafford is more of a traditional stadium than all these modern stadiums. Having been numerous of times to matches and doing stadium tours.

General consensus is that they want to keep the tradition within the club. It does indeed look dated in certain sections. Definitely the red flooring that's looks like more 60s than anything.

Thanks guys.

A lot of depressed fans around and understandably so. However looking at it in another way, we can say we played 3 our of the supposed top 6 we drew at anfield, beat Spurs at Old Trafford and lost 1-0 to the defending champions at the bridge; a place where we were scored 4 goals last season.
Realistically, at the start of the season, how many fans thought we will have a different outcome form these 3 games? I have seen a lot of posts about of defense and some attributes of lack of from various players. But for me one thing that stood out yesterday was that Mhki is no Hazard.
We have a 100% record in the CL, something which shouldn't be brushed off bcos if you remember the last time we were in a similar group we ended up qualifying for Europa.
What hurts now is the gap between city and us. Will be tough to claw back, but not impossible.


1.) 06 Nov 2017 09:55:16
You think, based on the current squad that we had, we couldn't defeat a poor Liverpool side or even take the game to Chelsea?

I think the last two matches of the CL have been poor. The goal against Benefica (Away) was pure luck and so was the first goal we scored against them at home. We didn't take the game to them, if you remember correctly, then it was Benefica that looked like they might score, especially at Old Trafford.

2.) 06 Nov 2017 10:24:32
I think we have struggled since the player we have built our side around got injured. We were flying when Pogba was in the team, he got injured and we replaced him with Fellaini, he was no Pogba but we continued to get results. Then he got injured and we had to replace him with Herrera, since then we have struggled to get the results.

So yes considering our injuries and how those injuries have impacted the team then yes I don’t feel there is much else we could have done with the players available at the time to improve the result.

Our midfielders being out and our drop off in form also coincide with Lukaku picking up an injury playing for Belgium. He hasn’t looked quite the same since. He has missed a few chances in several games he was smashing away in the first few games this season. If he scored his chances in the last few games then we would have beaten both Liverpool and Chelsea in all likelihood.

3.) 06 Nov 2017 12:00:25
Sorry mbd, but yesterday you could easily have lost 4-0 again. Bakayoko alone could have had a hat trick!

4.) 06 Nov 2017 13:56:12
I hate to agree with Chelsea but he's right. We were well beaten a 1-0 defeat flattered us.

I was amazed how we approached the game and the space afforded to Hazard, Fabregas and Morata was criminal I have no idea what our game plan was yesterday, if we even had one? Very strange! Jose was even magnanimous in defeat.

We could have maybe nicked an equaliser at the end playing huff ball to Fellaini. He should have come in at HT instead of Miki, played higher up the pitch and we could have played over their high press which we just couldn't cope with. Our defenders aren't the strongest in possession and when they get pressed we can't retain the ball and give it away in dangerous areas. At least Fellaini might have given them something to think about. The fact he slotted in next to Matic and Herrra was baffling. He's not the best in possession himself and almost gave a couple of goals away losing possession around our box.

Conte got his tactics spot on and Jose had no answer.

5.) 06 Nov 2017 15:28:15
We also missed some good opportunities and Courtois made some good saves as well.



18 Jul 2017 10:26:14
Somewhat of a different post from the transfer/ friendlies trend.
I remember Ed002 saying something along the line of LVG being sacked due to toxic fans and that the board had a plan and a replacement lined up after the 3 year deal. We however ended up with Mou because the plan was hindered. ( I hope i am not misquoting Ed002))
Also a lot of posters assumed that the replacement would have been Alegri.
Now that being said, and with the current trend of things at Juve (Bonucci saga, not being able to control Alves and rumours of bust ups with other payers), would Utd fans see missing out on Alegri as a bullet dodged or still think he would have been good for us?


1.) 18 Jul 2017 14:48:15
It's hard to say mbd.

He doesn't know the premier league and although he's done a great job at Juventus, there's no real way of knowing how we would have dome with us.

Conte was able to jump from Serie A to the PL so who's to say Alegri Couldn't?

Either way, we've got Jose mow!

2.) 18 Jul 2017 16:53:42
We won a few trophies last season and we're now a year further down the line in a much needed rebuild. Would we have Pogba if LvG was in charge last summer? Conte and Pep with a year head start on Alegri, who would need time to adjust? I'm happy with how the cards fell.



05 Jun 2017 10:11:00
Morata is just an expensive Chicharito. Curse u lvg!


1.) 05 Jun 2017 11:36:34
You have never watched morata have you?

2.) 05 Jun 2017 12:16:31
CSM no I haven't, I based my assumption on how their names rhyme.

I agree with Brendan and Shappy. Although Off my head available keepers that i wouldn't mind seeing come in are
Yann Sommer
If fit Mattia Perin
Bernd Leno

From these 3, if Perin can stay fit, I'd say he will be the only one better than Romero, the other 2 I put at par. But this is just my opinion.

One season solution:
Zlatko Junuzovic.
