Some Utd bloggers this morning saying we're letting Josh Harrop go. Anyone have any info?


1.) 17 Jun 2017 11:20:50
Apparently Preston are after him? So it says in the LEP.

2.) 17 Jun 2017 18:12:50
Cheers Kidder. He goes to Preston, rips up the league and scores 20+ and we go back in for him next season for 15mill ish. With Keane in mind it Feels like groundhog day.

3.) 19 Jun 2017 07:23:40
More will leaner than Michael for me- no great loss.



04 Aug 2015 07:25:37
Press reports this morning are saying the Dutchmeister is putting Jesse Lingard up for sale. Any thoughts? If it's true what message will that send to the lads in the Academy? JL would run for us till his lungs burst. I hope it's alltwaddle.e


1.) 04 Aug 2015 08:24:27
I'd be fuming if we sold him! What is lvg playing at

2.) 04 Aug 2015 08:55:46
To Bristol City for around £2.5m apparantly, maybe the lad wants to go because he knows he won't get enough first team football chances at United.

3.) 04 Aug 2015 08:58:22
Would be a real shame. He always has done well when given a chance. would like him to go to mid table club to see if he can cut it.
Newcastle/Villa maybe

4.) 04 Aug 2015 09:22:59
Perhaps I'm miles off, but with LVG running around OT handing out flight tickets left right and centre like this, I can see a car crash coming. Wonder how Giggsy is taking all this?

5.) 04 Aug 2015 09:52:18
He's done well during pre-season games and loan spells in the Championship but maybe that's his level? If he's as good as some of you claim the list of clubs after him would be very different, surely?

6.) 04 Aug 2015 10:14:50
Giggs must be fuming

7.) 04 Aug 2015 10:17:48
Consider that he is 22 years old and in need of regular football to continue his progress. Then consider if he stays would he get ahead of Depay, Young, Januzaj or Pereira. On top of that we look like we are about to wrap up the signing of Pedro. Meaning he'll have 5 players ahead of him for one of only two available positions.

Januzaj and Pereira need game time, that would only be limited further by keeping Lingard. I will he sad to see him leave, he is a talented lad and one of our own. But the time has come for him to continue his career without us.

8.) 04 Aug 2015 10:20:59
I'd prefer not to let him go just yet but I would be quite surprised if Lingard made it to the first team at Old Trafford in his career.

9.) 04 Aug 2015 11:14:25
Share same thoughts as shappy. Good young player but at his age needs first team football every week and don't think prem top 4 will ever be his level realistically

10.) 04 Aug 2015 11:19:28
He's not at the required level or he'd be playing already. Time to let him go.

11.) 04 Aug 2015 11:55:31
It'd be a disgrace if Lingard leaves! He looked awesome start of last season and in pre-season! LVG what are you thinking?!

12.) 04 Aug 2015 12:50:12
Jaysus pep what are you talking about the lad has been here for years playedunder 3 mangers none of whom kept him in the team he has been on loan several times and not pulled up any trees. who would you like him in the team ahead of young? adman? Perriera ? Depay? Possibly Pedro? Or should we not bother with Pedro or depay? Whatisit you want exactly to keep him and never play him. totally clueless statements

13.) 04 Aug 2015 13:00:59
Given a choice of lingard or Pereira which would you keep and play?

14.) 04 Aug 2015 19:04:28
Periera , as he is class above lingArd and might even outclass januzaj in the next few years.

15.) 04 Aug 2015 19:22:01
There comes a point where you have to make a decision on a players career. It is fair to them as well. Lingard is 22, is he really going to be first choice and make it or even be second choice? Does he not deserve the chance to be first choice somewhere? Forgotten in this is that at some point we have to make room for the next generation, the Gribbens and then there is Pereira who I would keep above Lingard. Jesse didn't make it at the very highest level but I do feel he could be a premier league player but perhaps not top half. Wish him well if he goes, he would be another good player we have churned out but perhaps the next one will be a Giggs.

I mentioned Angel Gomes and apparently he is head and shoulders over his contemporaries, that is the level they have to be but they have to have it mentally and physically. Good luck Lingard wherever he goes

16.) 04 Aug 2015 20:59:37
Keeping lingard on the bench or loaning him out would be useless.
There is still a possibility that we may sign bale/reus and that could further drop lingard in the pecking order.
I tend to feel that us United fans have a lot of our love for our players, and more than half of them feel gutted when an academy player or former first teamed leaves.
Evident with the cases of Rafael, welbeck and lingard. They are all very good players but not United quality.
You see Barca, Munich that's the quality we need.
And it gives some kind of happiness when you see the likes of shawcross, chester, Brady, mame diouf and others doing well in the PL; which is what separates us fans from the rest of PL.
There isn't a single player that LVG has released that has gone on to do wonders.
Still feel Evans, Hernandez, Lindegaard, Powell, Johnstone(loan), Wilson and Blackett and Valdes would leave depending upon whom we sign

I know that posters come and posters go, but has anyone seen Ronnie? The place doesn't seem the same lately.


1.) 01 Mar 2017 10:09:03
He is busy taking GDS out of his pocket😀😀
Transfer windows is when he comes out of hibernation.

2.) 01 Mar 2017 17:05:39
He's always knocking about on the European Soccer page with his transfer questions.

3.) 03 Mar 2017 06:33:48
Think we are waiting for a new pile of youngsters to get born.



23 Feb 2017 21:13:07
Now doing the rounds of various media outlets from the desk of Mr Rooney. “Despite the interest which has been shown from other clubs, for which I’m grateful, I want to end recent speculation and say that I am staying at Man United. I hope I’ll play a full part in helping the team in its fight for success on four fronts. It’s an exciting time at the club and I want to remain a part of it. ”
The manager seems to have everyone scrapping for their place.


1.) 23 Feb 2017 22:08:28
Totally deluded, he's nothing more than a bit part player on Ronaldo/ Messi/ Tevez? money. Probably score the winner on Sunday now. I suspect He'd do more for the club going to China than he ever can by staying now. Time waits for no man except maybe Valentino Rossi.

2.) 24 Feb 2017 09:29:11
Good on him, chose to stay when he could have left. Wants to fight and be a part of the squad when he knows he is not in the first 11. I admire that.

3.) 24 Feb 2017 10:29:46
partdingle - As an aside in a former life I used to move the grand prix equipment and race teams around Europe- big excitement when Rossi came to our office to look at equipment we had in warehouse- his leathers were individually packed in tissue paper as if they had come directly from the maker but were in fact cleaned and folded after each race, if i remember he came and took gloves away from previous race . Assen NL -best of all he had a foto with a forklift driver who then had it made into 4ft x 3ft picture and framed . following year he took it up to the Brno circuit and Rossi burst out laughing and duly signed it for him.



18 Feb 2017 09:13:37
7 months ago Jose spoke in raptures about his 'two fantastic natural talents Axel Tuanzebe and Andreas Pereira'. He promptly then sent Andreas out on loan to Granada and I had more than a bit of a wobble about the managers decision.
But. even though Granada have struggled, Andreas has been superb for them. He looks stronger bodily, appears even more intuitive and has scored 3 goals in the last four games. Yes he got sent off last week after retaliating to a slap (offender also got a red), but that's all part of growing up.
Hat tip to the manager, it looks like a shrewd move on his part.
With all the talk about who we should be buying, looks like Andreas could save us lots of money.


{Ed001's Note - he had a decent game last night, up until his sending off.}

1.) 18 Feb 2017 09:32:17
Sorry Ed, I meant last night not last week. It's an age thing.

{Ed001's Note - I never even noticed you put last week! That must be an age thing too....}

2.) 18 Feb 2017 15:39:48
Pereira has been very good everytime I've watched him .
Not sure where he will fit in at united tho.

3.) 18 Feb 2017 15:39:48

{Ed001's Note - when they are good enough you find a way to get them in the team.}

4.) 18 Feb 2017 15:52:00
Ive always said the same myself but sometimes there is only so much space in the squad .
What do u see as his best position.

{Ed001's Note - anywhere in an interchangeable front three.}

5.) 18 Feb 2017 17:59:50
I think pereira could very well be good enough. I think he deserves a chance when he comes back. See if he can cut it in a mourinho team.

6.) 18 Feb 2017 19:33:23
I do myself but martial could be good enough rash miki . at the moment tbe list goes on and we might go out and buy a griezmann type .
Really like the look of him just not sure he will get a chance.

7.) 18 Feb 2017 21:14:20
At the moment we have ibra rash miki mata jessie rooney martial young for 3 or 4 places depending on the formation.
There are a couple of squad places up for grabs next season as I see at least 2 of that crew playing elsewhere next season.
So a new signing plus pereira could well fill those places vacated which would freshen up the forward line beautifully.

8.) 18 Feb 2017 21:33:08
I would add pogba to that .
Ibra starts and if we pay 80 mill for griez so will he .
I think miki will establish himself as well .
I really like pereira but he is better of playing footy than sitting on the bench imo .
The same may even be true of rashford who is starting to feel the squeaz .



10 Aug 2016 23:13:34
I didn't know what all the Paul Pogba fuss was about until I saw this earlier today. I think I do now.

Paul Pogba - Juventus 2015/2016. 28 minutes of video


1.) 11 Aug 2016 04:12:42
Oh we knew.

He is a great talent. 😎.

2.) 11 Aug 2016 04:42:59
No time - thanks for posting this. Great viewing.

3.) 11 Aug 2016 12:28:22
Great video. Seems like it's a nightmare to try and get the ball off him. Good footwork, good passing and fast too.

I think he's going to rip up the premier league for us.

4.) 11 Aug 2016 21:18:38
Yeah but anyone can look good in a 3 minute YouTube clip. Oh wait this is a 28 minute clip. I suppose that's why they paid the money for him.
Roll on the wkend⚽️ ⚽️.



05 Jul 2016 10:46:03
Morning everyone.
I've got a writing deadline to meet and was bang at it until my French Man U RSS feeds burst into life and began pinging in at a great rate of knots.
On going to click the feeds off to avoid distraction I see every one is about Matuidi being given permission by the French camp to talk to us.
My bullsheetometer lurched straight over into the red, but on thinking about it, he was Zlatan's link guy at PSG and after training and playing with him for years, he will know instinctively where he gets to on the pitch.
When you factor in that JM wanted him at Chelsea, and even without the Swedish factor that he's a bit of a beast, it somehow seems to make more sense than Pogba.
Anyhoo, all feeds off, internet off and back to it.

oops, small mistake there. he arrived at 0930 to be denied entry, drove off, parked up (made a phone call? ) and returned at 0945 to be let straight in.

Lots of realism there re Greizmann Red. It's only going to get more frenzied the nearer we get to the WIndow opening in July. Only the reportards are linking us with him, (and everyone else for that matter) Jose is a canny manager and I reckon his wishlist is already written and will contain some real surprises (who reported we would buy the boy Bally last season? ) .
His demeanour this season shows his frustration with the players he has had to work with and I think the Glazers will give him an open wallet to put his project in place (then once we are back up there with Real and Barcelona they'll most likely sell us on) .
Your striker comment is smack on, without Zlatan we look lost in front of goal and is the reason I for one am finding it difficult to be positive about the final in a fortnight.
That said, no one will be more happy to turn up here and have s. h. One t thrown at me when the lads win 4-0.

Caolan, Cardiff supporters were well popped off when they let MD leave after they sacked Ole Gunnar, who was the sole reason he went to Wales. 2015/ 16 season spent at German second tier SC Freiburg - 6 full games, 3 goals. He obviously made an impression as Bundesliga team FC St. Pauli came in for him in the January window as a loanee (how many players are loaned up a division)? 12 games so far- 3 goals. Loan spell up on 30th June, no decision yet made whether he will stay or go back. Apparently Freiburg would look at offers of £628k for him (2 weeks wages of our current number 10, which shows how senseless the game is becoming) . HTH.

If wit was tit Betty, you'd be flat chested. Just stop picking on the guy, he's probably the most harmless person on the forum but in being so he's an easy target for all the public bar bullies that hang about on here getting their rocks off.
Laugh all you want but Ronnie was the first one of us to bring Lozano up on the radar, and was heckled for it.
