Does anyone know if the club uS started any negotiations for a January signing?


1.) 06 Jan 2018 10:07:14
I hope so! Real lack of pace, creativity and enthusiasm in the center. I still think we need a real leader. Really wish we would press teams and dominate the ball like City and Liverpool (never thought I’d ever say that! ) . Kind of feel for Mkhitaryan but so low on confidence and not playing well, getting hooked off at HT last night really proves he’s going to be out the door some point soon.



09 Aug 2017 22:24:49
Ed 002 do you expect us to make more signings before the window closes?


{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

1.) 09 Aug 2017 23:36:56
Ed if United don't sign the left sided player they are after, will they make a move for Bale, cheers ed.

{Ed002's Note - RTFP.}

2.) 10 Aug 2017 11:41:52
😂😂 Ed 002 I really enjoy your responses 👏👏🎣.

3.) 10 Aug 2017 12:04:39
With the arrival of Neymar at PSG, do you think there could be interest in Draxler? Think he would be a quality addition!

4.) 10 Aug 2017 13:31:03
Am I the only one who doesn't know what RTFP means?

{Ed007's Note - Probably. Try rearranging these letters - Ed sets a pitchfork gun.}

5.) 10 Aug 2017 13:43:35
Reckon ed nailed it in the sharkopod we will go in for danny rose.

6.) 10 Aug 2017 13:56:26
I just googled RTFP and it suggests Regional Trade Facilitation Project. What's that got to do with Bale? haha.

{Ed007's Note - Well he is Welsh and the project is to facilitate his trade to another region i.e. England/Manchester - so that works for me!}

7.) 10 Aug 2017 14:24:50
hahahahahaha brilliant.

8.) 10 Aug 2017 14:28:37
Draxler only moved in January.

9.) 10 Aug 2017 15:44:41
Just to help you out READ THE F*****G Page.

{Ed007's Note - That's not right.}

10.) 10 Aug 2017 16:11:27
Hahaha guy. So sure of yourself and still got it wrong 😂.

11.) 10 Aug 2017 16:13:09
*Effing post.

12.) 10 Aug 2017 23:10:33
Cheers ed002 I see you basically got asked the same question on the real Madrid page again but you gave an civil answer. Sorry to have bothered you.

{Ed002's Note - Might be best if you didn't bother asking any more questions then.}

13.) 11 Aug 2017 14:38:18
I believe it stands for "Rainfish Trombone Feels Porpoises".

14.) 11 Aug 2017 19:32:51
Which Ed cut that you cheeky git hahahaha.



09 Aug 2017 20:36:27
A lot of back lash from last night, but it might be the making of us. They now know the level required and hard work needed. Now Jose get to work.


1.) 09 Aug 2017 20:46:29
Spot on Redcon.

2.) 09 Aug 2017 20:59:33
No that's it, that's as good as we can play . We won't get any better, we won't gel, the players won't get fitter the team won't improve .
You don't get any better than your last game of pre season .

And this is the real scary bit every other team will play as well as they possible can, all the other players than have been bought will be amazing from day 1 and other team will have a loss of form. or even an Injury.

We are doomed.

3.) 09 Aug 2017 21:32:06
Irony really is the lowest form of wit.

4.) 10 Aug 2017 06:12:02
Thought that was sarcasm fabs? 😜.

5.) 10 Aug 2017 06:35:40
I think you'll find ironing is an extreme sport. Maybe you were looking for sarcasm?

6.) 10 Aug 2017 17:44:02
Oh the sarcasm.
Oh the irony?



08 Jul 2017 13:23:52
Anyone know if we are still pursuing Perisic and Rodriguez?




10 Jun 2017 23:40:52
Morta is done too, we are getting it done early as Jose requested.

What missing at present from our team is a leader who will drive us on, shout at the player when they need it and lead by example when that's needed. Our great teams had lots of those characters, now we have none. Valencia will give his all but that's not enough to be our captain.


1.) 14 Feb 2018 00:24:43
Simply playing devils advocat here.

Who’s the loud/ vocal leader that drives the city team on?

2.) 14 Feb 2018 05:44:20
Unfortunately just some time back I was thinking that Smalling could have step up to be that leader. How far down he has fall down to her pecking order.

3.) 14 Feb 2018 07:32:27

Kompany fits that bill but I think it’s more than the leader issue for us. We lack intensity and drive in a few players, that should come from within and the desire to perform. What I saw on Sunday was a Newcastle team that wanted it more than some of our players. SAF was a great motivator but from a long term position of strength, the players knew they had to perform or be gone. A leader on the pitch would help, as would not having to look over our shoulders at a unconvincing pair in central defence.

4.) 14 Feb 2018 07:49:36
What we need is a manager who plays all the players in their correct positions with the correct tactics. We also need a manager who is a motivator and good at man management. Hand on heart, does anyone believe that Mourinho is that manager?

5.) 14 Feb 2018 08:03:18
Hand on heart, I'm not sure. I think what he's won in his career earns him a little longer to get it right than his predecessors. That's why I am trying hard not to judge him before the end of next season.

6.) 14 Feb 2018 09:31:19
Should it not come from the manager.
Vidic and co didn't look like leaders under moyes .
Sure did under fergy.

7.) 14 Feb 2018 12:49:28
When do the players take responsibility though? We've had certain players now putting in the insipid performances under 3 managers. All 3 managers have their faults. But the players need to step up as well.

8.) 14 Feb 2018 16:15:04
They don't managers do .
May not be fair but that's the way it is . A managers job is to get the best out of his players.

9.) 14 Feb 2018 19:55:31

Have you ever managed, in football or in work?

There are many aspects to management and motivation and you are doing the simple blame the manager routine.

10.) 14 Feb 2018 20:39:36
I have red man both football and work.
And to be honest there is far more to it than a couple of comments on a banter site .

But in a simple way, managers, tend to get sacked players don't
If a team is underperforming the manager takes the responsibility.

It would take pages to fully cover the subject but this is a comment site .
But any decent manager takes responsibility for his team and is normally judged by his or her teams performance .

Just to be clear I haven't blamed anyone it's just your Jose obsession kicking in .
I just pointed out that generally (in football ) if a team is underperforming such as Chelsea when they where only a few points above relegation it's the manager who falls on the sword .

11.) 14 Feb 2018 20:59:15

Not picking but a manager is accountable rather than responsible

SAF was particularly successful because he built an impregnable managerial position very successfully, that enabled him to use different styles of motivation. They gave Moyes a 6 year contract to try and replicate it. The players have responsibility to put the effort in but there is only so much a manager can do about motivation until they have built their position.

12.) 14 Feb 2018 21:16:10
I'm responsible and accountable for my team in a work environment.
I disagree about motivation as well, with the right techniques you can set the tone from day 1.



11 Feb 2018 20:52:57
I was watching Ole Gunnar Solskaer with my son on YouTube yesterday, the speed we played at then, no dwelling on the ball they won it passed it forward and created continually. We're has that United style gone?


1.) 11 Feb 2018 21:40:21
I agree I used to love playing you guys bbut cause regardless of score it was a good game and everyone out their all into it, now I can’t bare playing you’d José is too happy with the draw, give Sanchez a few games maybe it’ll change a bit atleast?



11 Feb 2018 15:13:38
How many times does Jose need hear and see Pogba needs 2 with him the midfield. It is so frustrating watching we cannot control a game and are giving up too many opportunities each week.


1.) 11 Feb 2018 15:49:46
The Paul Pogba we bought from Juve looked a world class talent on the left of a 433. It really isn't rocket science. He is a great player given licence to roam forward from the left, use his immense passing range and excellent athleticism. But there are just too many games now where he has looked a passenger in a midfield 2. I appreciate he looked injured today but if that's the case why the hell is he playing! Bad management today to play him. And poor judgement to keep pushing a system that is not working for the star signing!

2.) 11 Feb 2018 16:16:37
We played 3 in cm today.

3.) 11 Feb 2018 16:17:05
He had two good games in a row a few weeks ago, that is it for February. It's normally 1 in 5.

4.) 11 Feb 2018 17:23:27
We didn't play 3 in midfield. We played one holding midfielder and pogba and Lingard. We need to play hererra and matic as they ARE midfielders and pogba in front. Mourinho got it wrong again. And if he keeps being stubborn and refusing to recognize this, then we better part company now.



31 Jan 2018 23:05:06
Game was lost in the middle of the park for me, Matic is very poor lately and leaving players in behind him a lot, as for Pogba, what can we say non existent. We need him on the left with a midfield 3 with either Herrera or the wig and Matic, Sanchez in the 10 role and Martial on the right and Lukaku up top.




29 Jan 2018 23:14:56
Well are we expecting one more signing before Wednesday's deadline?


1.) 29 Jan 2018 23:33:49
Not me.

2.) 30 Jan 2018 12:54:27
Heard that Woodwards turned his attention to the commercial arm and is looking for an official piano partner for future unveilings. Other instruments may be considered.

I would prefer tosee a 4-2-3-1 formation with carrick & fellani sitting in midfield protecting the back four. That leaves Mata Rooney, januzai and RVP up top
