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 Iโ€™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 heโ€™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
๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Ed 002 I really enjoy your responses ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŽฃ.

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 ๐Ÿ˜‚.

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.

Irony really is the lowest form of wit.

4.) 10 Aug 2017 06:12:02
Thought that was sarcasm fabs? ๐Ÿ˜œ.

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.

Some serious issues now for the club,1 Pogba will they push to sell, he is too inconsistent, ( Martial and Sanchez too) 2. Jose's style of play, it tough to watch the fans are getting tired of it. 3 we need to strengthen in a number of areas, full backs, Centre back, midfield so how much can we afford. 4 with all our attacking players we can't create chances against weak opposition, so do we need another play maker? It's going to be a long summer l just hope the board have made a decision on Jose so the business can start before many players go to the world cup.


1.) 16 Apr 2018 04:38:11
We have no width at all.

Tony should be perfect for what we need as a right back, but somewhere in the LVG years he completely lost the ability to go down the outside and cross a ball. It is so painful to watch the team draw the opposition to our left, quickly switch play to Tony in acres of space only for him to turn inside and keep possession - or worse still drive the ball really hard and low into the first defender.

If only Young was left footed, or could cross with his left on the outside.

We have strikers or playmakers (Mata and sanchez) for wingers.

The biggest difference for Liverpool is that the two young full backs add width and half decent crosses. I don't even think they assist that many, but they stretch the play out creating space.

2.) 16 Apr 2018 08:09:07
But aren't all these things simply down to tactics? Every game I watch the commentators tear Josรฉ's tactics apart, yesterday as an example, they pointed out that we had to narrow players on the wings against a team heavily congested in the middle, meaning more traffic there instead of stretching. Look at the balls played by Pogba, Matic, Herrera, even when there are players on the wings (Young, Valencia), they look to put in down the center. Even when Young, or Valencia as you say, get the ball, they look to cut into the park, rather than look for an overlap and cross, again probably tactics.

The commentators also mentioned yesterday that during half time at City, the players are the ones who took the initiative, rather than Mourinho, did they merely disregard his tactics for the second half? The players just look confused, always second guessing as to whether they are playing the Josรฉ way, taking two or three touches to pass a simple ball to someone who seconds before was unmarked and now is surrounded. Josรฉ talked of players over trying, too complicated, yesterday, yet the major culprit, Sanchez who just seems to chip balls hoping they'll land, remained on the pitch till the end. I don't think pointing fingers at the players is as justified as some believe, the squad is better than some believe. I mean Liverpool and City are attack orientated with questionable defences, as instead much more so.

3.) 16 Apr 2018 09:21:24
Sell Sanchez? he was the only one out there yesterday in a red shirt with any urgency and looked like he cared, I only wish the rest of the outfield players would show the same energy levels and maybe then we wouldn't struggle against the bottom feeders.

4.) 16 Apr 2018 12:55:52
georgieworst - Sanchez was absolutely awful yesterday, he can't seem to let go of the ball and make the simple pass. He's always wants to take that extra touch and he's constantly loosing the ball. Pogba can go tomorrow for me. I don't care what anyone says on this site, he is not in the slightest interested, he's lazy and arrogant and he's absolutely taking the p*ss out of Manchester United.
To many individual players not enough team players.

5.) 16 Apr 2018 13:17:07
Agree with Georgie Sanchez was the only one trying to make something happen. I would like to put yesterday down to a bad day in the office but itโ€™s happening far too much for it to be just that. These small games are the bread and butter and they are what wins league titles. Until we start blowing these teams away the we wonโ€™t be anywhere near winning the title. We are not ruthless enough. Pathetic quite frankly.

6.) 16 Apr 2018 14:56:50
Maybe if other players moved for one of Sanchez's passes instead of remaining static and waiting for a pass instead of moving for one then Sanchez's stats might look a little more Impressive. There are a few players that are more deserving of condemnation imho.

7.) 17 Apr 2018 09:47:06
Play the match back again and watch how many times Sanchez loses the ball, instead of laying the ball off with an easy pass he chooses to take an extra touch and gets the ball taken off him. Even his passing was dreadful yesterday. Mourinho eluded to it in his after match interview.
I am still trying to work out why Mourinho bought him, we have 2 perfectly good players in that position that were happy to fight it out between them.
The Money could be put to good use buying someone else like a midfielder which we are desperate for.



11 Apr 2018 22:52:49
Ed 002 mentioned Pogba was offered to other clubs earlier, are they still trying to get rid of him?


{Ed002's Note - This was done by his agent.}

1.) 12 Apr 2018 09:10:00
Ed002 in this kind of situation would the player be agreeable or has no say pls? Shouldnโ€™t the current club needs to be informed of these offers to another club?
Thanks ๐Ÿ™.

{Ed002's Note - The player would be aware. The club may or may not. This happens all of the time.}

2.) 12 Apr 2018 09:14:51
Thanks Ed002. Response at the speed of light ๐Ÿ‘.

{Ed002's Note - Faster than the speed of light. I am omnipresent.}

07 Apr 2018 20:12:07
Who saw that coming! We could have been 4 down at half time.




01 Apr 2018 20:44:39
We all know next week is going to be so difficult, but please Jose don't park the bus, let the reigns off and go at them, show passion and drive, if we lose, we lose but just make us proud of our team performance. I would hate to park the bus and lose a late goal and get slated again for negative football. The first half yesterday (opposition aside) was great to watch so get at them early and strong and go for goals there poor at the back, yet again another chance for Pogba to step up to make his mark and show if he is a world class player.


1.) 01 Apr 2018 20:55:04
If we get beat, I hope Jose and the players take a good hard look at the celebrations, and remember it.

2.) 01 Apr 2018 21:20:32
I won't be surprised if pep rest players against us .
Big game against the scouse for them.



18 Mar 2018 19:41:50
Was discussing our team last night and looking back over the season, we started great fast, attacking and scoring goals. Then we were making lots of chances but failed to convert, at the back we were very tight conceding very few goals. Now move forward a few months, we can't pass the ball, don't create, playing this long ball and are poor at the back. We have bought Sanchez and blooded McTormey. In fairness to Lukaku he is trying every game and has 25 goals even with such a poor service. What has gone wrong, we should be more efficient now, more used to each others game and have a settled team and style, but no.


1.) 18 Mar 2018 20:12:36
Did we start fast and attacking, watch those games again if you can as I think you have it wrong?

We had brief moments in those games against weak teams where we were very clinical. Virtually every team we scored 4 against lost their manager or were without a manager. It was an easy start and the final score flattered our performances. We deserved to win in those games, but the goals came in brief bursts, not on account of good fast attacking style to our play. It has been the same type of performance all season, sometimes it works. We have not been fast and attack minded.

The only two exceptions were against West Ham and Burton, where we looked brilliant.

2.) 18 Mar 2018 20:22:57
United of last 2 seasons has been about somehow getting the 1st goal. First few matches this season we finished the matches strong with goals coming in counter attacks after 80th minute. I wasn't excited as much as others because I could see the similarities from the season before in which we started great with Ibra and company. But this time the plus point was that our counter attacks were more swift and players had better understanding.
Then came the Stoke match where Jose had to make changes to the winning unbeaten team because he is such a tactician and we lost, with some fight I might add. Few matches of getting over the line and then the disaster against Liverpool which just shattered the players confidence in themselves and their teammates.
This is not a team of winners (past few seasons) as Jose himself has pointed out they never recovered and few losses here and there were no help. On the other hand watching City destroying teams might have had an effect also. The tactics didn't help either.

3.) 18 Mar 2018 20:51:02

A draw at Anfield is a disaster? How?
I agree we haven't been absolutely dominant in games but we are better and more consistent than all other teams in the league bar City.

This is a team of players who lack character and the personality to want the ball and take players on. They are too happy to stroll and pass sideways than take risks. You can see by Jose's answer about McTominay for eg. He said he had his worst game but he never stopped trying, never stopped doing the basics of positioning right and never stopped trying to get the ball forward early. His execution was off but you could see he had the right idea. Its the same with Lingard imo and Lukaku (even when he doesn't score he creates chances and holds it up for his teammates), Bailly (when fit), Mata and Matic and to an extent Rashford.

This is what is lacking from the others imo. Just take the example of Pogba. He has all the natural talent in the world a midfielder could need yet his application is so poor. He forgets to get the basics right that McTominay does. He fails to build the foundation first on which he can then build. Martial looks average, casual and comfy far too often.

4.) 19 Mar 2018 07:59:41
Redfaith/ Ken. A draw at Anfield at present is a very good result. But when we went to Anfield earlier in the season, Liverpool were playing badly and shipping a lot of goals and we were playing well. But mourinho chose to park the bus.
That game changed our attacking style (whatever style we had! ) and the season stuttered from that point.
Have you forgotten the gutless performances against City, Spurs, Huddersfield, Newcastle, burnley at ot, and seville away and home. Stoke away was also a game where we showed we had no guts.
People are mentioning passion, pressing, working hard to make space and to win back possession. Non of these are characters of this United side, I'm sure you agree on this. Whose fault is this? Who is the person at the club in charge of getting the players to play with passion and work hard for the cause? Once you've answered this question, you realize the manager we have is not all he's meant to be.

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
