Goodness Me. MEN's latest. Marco Asensio.


1.) 23 Jul 2017 19:32:54
Hasnt Ed02 said he is off to Monaco?

{Ed002's Note - No, but they are interested.}

2.) 23 Jul 2017 20:13:09
Almost got it right Ed02.

3.) 23 Jul 2017 20:51:54
seriously why would we sign another striker we have 3 with lukaku Rashford and Martial plus likely Ibra to come can't see it unless Martial is allowed to go in exchange for Perisic.

4.) 23 Jul 2017 20:51:21
Have we shown interest, Ed002? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

5.) 23 Jul 2017 21:45:50
Hi all, thanks to the Eds as always.
Ed are United open to offers for Martial this window or would they prefer to hold on to him?

{Ed002's Note - Right now he stays.}

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

14 Aug 2017 09:10:07
Good morning everyone. If it's Monday, it must be Griezmann again.
Apparently he is upset that he turned down the offer of a transfer to OT based on promises made about the AM squad, one of which was to sign Diego Costa, which hasn't yet materialised.
The rumours that AM now plan to sell Oblak have led him to question whether he made the right decision to turn us down, and whether he should stay with Atletico or put himself on the market.
Roll on Tuesday and the next round of content scraping by the MSM.
Gaitan anyone?


{Ed001's Note - it is amazing how the media can make up stories like that, knowing full well that everyone knows that Griezmann turned down United only after AM got a transfer ban! It was because they couldn't sign Costa that he agreed to stay.}

1.) 14 Aug 2017 10:01:38
I agree Ed. Didn't he come out and say something along the lines of 'it would poor of me to leave the Atletico during their time of need'? The problem is some fans just cannot move on until the next mass media story starts to stick.

For what it's worth I think Greizmann is a top player but he seems full of himself and really laps up his air time in front of the camera. I could see someone like him butting heads with Jose if something didn't go his way whereas someone like Matic for example would take a disagreement on the chin and get on with his job.

2.) 14 Aug 2017 10:09:46
Could we possibly be getting him in Jan when Costa can go to AM?

{Ed002's Note - Let's assume not.}

3.) 14 Aug 2017 11:01:39
Ed is there any plans to move the transfer window so it closes before the season begins?

{Ed002's Note - No. Then you could find players being sold with no chance to replace them.}



02 Jul 2017 12:11:23
Matic not included in the 8 team members showing the new Chelsea kit, and Matic's name is not being offered on the back of a next season shirt via Chelsea's online shop.
Make of it what you will.


1.) 02 Jul 2017 12:55:11
Hope not. I don't see how he's better than Fabinho. Second best again.

2.) 02 Jul 2017 13:04:06
How much of Fabinho have you seen? Matic is a proven winner in this league, highly rated by most. Much smaller risk. Jose knows his capabilities well. The knowledge of some on here astounds me, are you a French football scout?

3.) 02 Jul 2017 13:33:07
Thing is Fresh, you don't need to be a scout to rate a player or not. Matic i agree is a winner in the premier league, but he's knocking on in age.

It's Joses call and whatever happens in the market i will be here next season simple as that. I am not worried who we sign or don't sign.

4.) 02 Jul 2017 13:58:10
Matic is 28 fzz. Wouldn't say that's knocking on in age.

5.) 02 Jul 2017 14:04:25
Knocking on? He's in his peak years, look at Carrick still capable in that role. Fabinho isn't even a DM by trade he's a right back converted, I know who I'd rather out the 2 or if Maticinho was his name, cost a bomb from a foreign league would that be better?

6.) 02 Jul 2017 14:05:56
Wish we never bought cantona, after all he was knocking on a bit 😂.

7.) 02 Jul 2017 14:10:01
I totally agree bolger I think he's just the right age I rate TFM highly Matics age gives him a chance to develop with little pressure.

8.) 02 Jul 2017 14:15:05
Nemanja Matic is 28
Ander Herrera 27

Peak years.

9.) 02 Jul 2017 14:31:23
Knocking on in years in Ronnie talk 😂.

10.) 02 Jul 2017 14:39:16
Personally i hope we sign both. Matic is an Expert I his position very tidy and disciplined in his roll. Fabhino has a higher ceiling imo and is also a great right back with the potential to be the best rb out there. Great technically and has most of the top attributes you would want in any player.
At this moment in time matic is a better cdm than fabhino imo.
Id love both to be honest.
I also think tfm has a lot of potential as posted above.
Matic has been pivitol in chelsea midfield in their 2 title winning seasons. Over shadowed a little last season by kante but was a crucial member last season nonetheless
Matic is miles better as a cdm than herrera pogba fellaini none of whom play that roll naturally and it takes away from the positives of their natural game.
Matic may not be the name or come with the attributes some people want but if he does a job that allows us to get more from others such as pogba herrera miki martial then he will be worth his weight in gold. 28 is not old. What age is miki herrera ibra sanchez that a few are clamouring for?
Matic could well be the right man in the right place at the right time.

11.) 02 Jul 2017 14:56:27
I think for the price quoted £40m weather true or not is a lot for his age what's wrong with that view?

12.) 02 Jul 2017 14:57:39
He will be 29 a day before me, and trust me i feel like i'm knocking on.

13.) 02 Jul 2017 15:05:17
Fzz you are only a whipper snapper it gers worse believe me.

14.) 02 Jul 2017 15:19:58
Jose's building a team to win things this year, bringing in people he knows (perhaps perisic, morata, Matic) that can do a job immediately, without needing time to adapt. He's evaluated the current squad also, given some a year to prove themselves, and knows who he can trust to implement what he wants. Hence why I reckon he'll let Rooney, Shaw and Martial go.

More about how the team works together than the quality of an individual. Gurss he could bring in people who will be ready at a later stage but I think he's impatient to do well this year (great record doing well season 2) so wants his team ready from the off also.

15.) 02 Jul 2017 15:27:12
So every player past 28 might aswell hang up there boots then. He's professional footballer who trains ever day, have a fitness coach and dietician getting the very best out of him to perform at the top level daily, you may feel like your knocking on but i'm sure Matic doesn't. I know what ya mean tho Ken, it does get worse Haha.

16.) 02 Jul 2017 15:42:25
Wallace i'm torn on martial. He is a great talent and i think will go on to have areally good career.
However i don't see him and jose working together they seem to have polar personalities. I might be wrong and in many ways hope i am but martial could be sold if jose gets the bodies he is looking for.
One thing for sure and that's if martial is going to be a starter for jose he will have to change his ways to suit the manager because jose won't be changing to suit martial.

17.) 02 Jul 2017 15:50:45
28 Is what I would call prime for most.

18.) 02 Jul 2017 15:59:22
Agree Ken: I'd love Martial to be a success at United but he's only shown glimpses of his match-winning abilities last season. Jose wants a harder worker who will put more of a shift in. Hopefully he'll give him another chance to do this but, if not, he could well be off next year - if not sooner if Perisic comes in.

19.) 02 Jul 2017 15:59:24
Wrd you better believe it. 🤕🤕🤕.

20.) 02 Jul 2017 16:03:36
40 million is a bargain in today's market. Snap him up.

21.) 02 Jul 2017 16:27:16
WRD, i'm not sure where i said i wouldn't have him? Enlighten me.

I said for his age i don't think he was worth the quoted fee, its an opinion.

(plus he will be 29 by time the season starts :D)

22.) 02 Jul 2017 16:35:29
Fzz very touchy today 😂😂.

23.) 02 Jul 2017 16:53:16

24.) 02 Jul 2017 17:02:18
i dunno I just fancied a rant 😂.

25.) 02 Jul 2017 18:48:32
Fuzz has a point. He may or may not be a good player but £40M is a lot for a player of his age, particularly one who has had 1 good season.

26.) 02 Jul 2017 20:26:17
Unfortunately £40m seems a snip if the likes of Troy Deeney are worth similar amounts, got to remember the world we are in now.



01 Mar 2017 09:21:58
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
Pereira has been very good everytime I've watched him .

{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 .

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.
