We've let a lot of decent players leave and replaced with lesser quality players. I think Zaha is a brilliant dribbler, a typical SAF winger, but is his crossing upto the mark?
Does he want to move again to United and play under Jose who doesn't play youth very much.
I think he'll leave for Spurs, Liverpool, City than us.


1.) 11 Apr 2017 10:31:59
MOTD Fever, Rohan? Your first line reads "decent players leave and replaced with lesse quality" and then you add on to say Zaha. Is he really United standard? Here we are, talking of players like Sanchez/ Griezmann/ Belotti etc. Why would you want Zaha anywhere near the team?

2.) 11 Apr 2017 11:19:41
Yh zaha very inconsistent on his day he's unbelievable but nowhere near good enough.

3.) 11 Apr 2017 22:28:08
Zaha? Really? I'm speechless.

{Ed025's Note - i think hes talented eric, i know it never worked out for him at united but feel that was more to do with walloping moyes,s daughter than football ability mate.. :)

4.) 12 Apr 2017 12:24:11
I'm not saying per say we should sign him.

5.) 12 Apr 2017 23:28:27
Ha - good point Ed. There was always that rumour flying around.



17 Mar 2017 16:01:32
Youri Tielemans to play at OT.
Yes. Anderlecht vs United in the Europa league.
Ronnie must be the most pleased of all and finally we all posters get to see what the deal is about that guy.
PS Herrera in his post match said that Pogba wasn't that badly injured.




14 Mar 2017 17:34:06
Looking at the last 16 and the possible 8, when we qualify for the quarter finals in the Europa league.
There aren't any clubs that strike fear and looks as favourites.
The only sides I see as threatening are Celta da Vigo, Lyon and Roma.
Celts because they have been terrific in cup competitions and knock Madrid out in 2 legs.

One of Lyon and Roma will progress and both of them are free scorers.
Nobody apart from that. I fancy us beating Besiktas, Anderlecht etc.
Personally I'd love a tie against Anderlecht and see wtf is Youri Tielemans about if we progress.


1.) 15 Mar 2017 08:10:32
When? I wouldn't back us to beat anybody at the moment. I think "if" was the word you were looking for.

2.) 16 Mar 2017 22:23:16
I want Lyon or Schalke get them out of the way. I do not fear anyone in this competition. You have to beat the best to win!



12 Mar 2017 12:59:37
I'm not sure, but newspapers reporting Lingard had 1 year to run down on his current contract.
Do you guys rate him, does he deserve to be paid and be part of the first team?
I disagree, and would want to sell him to anyone who pays well. He scores at Wembley, and he helps the team, but is nowhere near the quality we need. He misses sitters, and I personally hate his social media stuff. He's just a poor Ji-Sung Park in my book.


1.) 12 Mar 2017 13:15:53
He's a squad player who lacks consistency. Some games he makes an impact; others he drifts along.
I'd offer him s new contract as he can play on both wings and in the number 10 position. Mourinho may yet work his magic with him.

2.) 12 Mar 2017 13:39:24
Spent this season hoping he would have an impact but it hasn't happened. Not sure about him on the wings as he always comes inside and we are left without any width.

I thought his best position was as a 10. But he played there for England once and his performance got ripped to shreds by whoever was the pundit that day. Also, we have loads of players that can play as a 10. Still not sure whether he will ever establish himself as a 1st team regular.

3.) 12 Mar 2017 14:05:39
Jesse Lingard is a Red, born and raised and is living the dream of any fan. One of our own.

A number of fans a quick to criticize him and i believe it is because we didn't spend £30m on him and he isn't a foreign FM wonderkid.

How many people on here where creaming themselves over Depay and then saying he needs more chances. Same for Martial.

He could be inconsistent because he only plays 1 in 4 games. But remember he is only getting a game because Martial, Mhiki, Mata or Rooney haven't been doing it. So you should direct the criticism in their direction.

He is an impact player and squad player. Sometimes he makes and impact sometimes he doesn't. But he has won.

There are players to go before Jesse and he will be needed next season.

He deserves a £70k a week contract with fees and bonus he'd touch 100k. He didn't cost anything and this isn't FIFA.

Also how many would take Welbeck back? I personally would and at the time was happy when we sold him. Live and learn.

4.) 12 Mar 2017 14:35:59
He's rubbish. OK he scored the winner in the League Cup Final but apart from that he's dreadful. Oh yeah there was the winner in the Community Shield but other than that, nothing. Apart from the winning goal in the FA Cup Final. But other than those winning goals that secured us trophies he's just a poor man's Ralph Milne.

5.) 12 Mar 2017 19:47:49

6.) 12 Mar 2017 20:02:13
"I personally hate his social media stuff. "
The way I think which you could get over this is by not following his social media?

I would keep him as squad player 100%.

7.) 12 Mar 2017 20:13:49
Jesse should 100% stay, he gets more game time than Rooney and has probably been more influencial over the course of the season.

He's home grown and red to the core, why the hell would we sell one of our own, especially one who offers so much?

Football is a squad game, and he is a vital member of our squad. Why do you think Arsenal and Spurs are supposedly interested in him?

8.) 12 Mar 2017 20:43:33
No way should be be sold. Good versatile squad player. English, home grown and well worth his place in a 25 mam squad imo.

9.) 12 Mar 2017 21:22:58
AJH 😂😂.

10.) 12 Mar 2017 23:04:20
With Ken on this one, a good squad rotation player, only way I sell him if we get a ridiculous offer that's too go to refuse.

11.) 13 Mar 2017 00:28:56
Not good enough in my opinion. Sell him!

12.) 13 Mar 2017 17:22:30
Aside from score a goal, can anyone remember anything else he has done this season?

13.) 13 Mar 2017 18:27:12
What did th rain mans ever do for us? How about his first time cross on the run Beast? Can you remember anything Pogba has done this season?

14.) 13 Mar 2017 18:32:04
That should be Romans, obvs.

15.) 14 Mar 2017 01:21:05
Good squad player imo. Bred red, but so was welbeck.
The only way i would sell him is if we going to buy big in summer. We still have andreas prerira coming back too. he's bred red but we shouldn't make this too big a factor. Kid got eye for goal. A no10 in my eyes. Not quick enough for the wings. i'm a huge andreas fan, and believe he has great potential. Jus don't know how much game time him and lingard can get if they both stay.



27 Feb 2017 01:14:17
I know Southampton had a nice rest.
And I'm incredibly happy we won it.
But we looked tired and laboured and Mkhi was injured too.
We have too many matches and it's showing. Zlatan said "He nearly died in the last minutes" and it was showing.

It's impossible for us to get a top 4, a Europe league cup and a FA Cup.
We cannot go and keep playing games with 14-15 players all the time.
Jose needs to prioritise top 4 above all.

I want him to use Bastian, Rooney, Fosu Mensah, Shaw more than he is.
It's not like they are as terrible as Morgan and Depay were.
Rooney can still lead the line, Bastian doesn't look out of sorts. Shaw's been untested. And Fosu doesn't even get a substitute appearance.

I want us to be all guns blazing for the Bournemouth game, play a defensive rotated side away to Russia, play the best XI against Chelsea and then at home play our best XI against Rostov, depending on our previous result.

Real Madrid are struggling with so many games, and we don't have a squad close to theirs in terms of quality. We cannot go so many games with same XI.
We can't play Herrera Pogba every game. Carrick can't start 3 times a week. And Bastian is a quality backup.

I'm surprised Jose doesn't rate Blind as he steps up his game, and learns his new positions very quickly.
Not to sound negative, but we cannot go playing like this. We'll injure a lot more players.


1.) 27 Feb 2017 02:02:46
I have to disagree, the team won in a difficult game where Southampton played their game plan to perfection. I doubt they will play a better 90 mins all season.

I think Zlatan was underlining how much effort it took for him to win us this game, and also giving Southampton the respect they deserve.

No one was injured today, no doubt they all put a decent amount of effort in, but nothing like what Southampton had to put into this game, and they didn't even come out with the win! Our strongest 11 should play as many games as they can, Jose doesn't play Klopp football, there is no high press, and I think you will find many of our players ran a lot less far than their Southampton counterparts.

I see where your coming from but I just don't agree.

2.) 27 Feb 2017 12:04:18
Agree with you both to a point.

I expect now we are coming to the business end of the season you will see rotation and to be fair Rooney and Carrick have just been out injured.

What Manchester United players have really impressed you this pre-season?

04 Aug 2019 11:28:53
{Ed's Note - rohanarora8 has posted a new article entitled, What Manchester United players have really impressed you this pre-season?


1.) 04 Aug 2019 12:29:47
Interesting read, I'd give AWB 5/ 5.

2.) 04 Aug 2019 14:21:55
AWB looks a great signing and DJ will cause havoc if used as an impact sub.

I think rashy will hit 20+ in all competitions. Martial may as well. He's looked a bit more up for it in pre-season. When/ if Big Rom goes I wonder if he'll get his 9 shirt back?

Greenwood I think will shock the wider footballing world. Most fans of other clubs are unaware of him unless they regularly watch academy football. I think once he gets the first one the floodgates will open. I know he's scored in preseason but that's a bit different to a competitive league game. I could see him managing 10-15 in all competitions.

Gomes as I've said before we really need to find a role for him and make sure he gets minutes. I'm still not sure where exactly he fits into the side but he looks a special talent.

I would've liked to have seen more of Garner and Chong. Garner I think is another year away but given the lightness in that department he will get some minutes. Chong I think needs a loan and may get no further than squad player.

Pereira I'm still not convinced on. I'm not sure where his best position is and see him as no more than rotation or back up.



13 Feb 2019 08:46:57
It's okay we were never going to win the champions league,
it was a disappointment how we lost.
Had it been 1-0 with the world class goal Mbappe scored, I wouldn't have been that bothered.
Because we know how good he is.

Now I would like to see how we cope with the loss and play a down and out Chelsea side away who will be looking to win, without our 2 first choice wingers.

And I would really like to see, how much does ole keep giving chances to the likes of Sanchez and mata, he's shown before that with Pereira and Fred that he's ready to drop them.
Another bad showing from both of them, and I would consider promoting a hungry Chong over these guys.
He's shown Fellaini the door, with nothing to lose, I hope he has the guts to say to Sanchez that if he isn't playing well he is not in the 18.




28 Nov 2018 09:58:47
What are your thoughts Eds including about Andreas Pereira?

In the pre-season showings as much as I saw him,
I saw a tenacious player, who was putting a shift in, and doing decent defensive work and more importantly trying to quicken the speed of the player with a very forward thinking passing approach.

His dead ball abilities are really good, and he was shielding the ball well.

Then after the huddersfield game, I don't think he's had a chance to play, maybe a cup game but I'm unsure.

I agree he didn't spot the runners running past him but it's a difficult skill to learn, especially for someone who has mostly played ahead and not as a deep lying playmaker.

I don't understand what has gone wrong with that, because he's hardly had a look in. Maybe the manager believes he's going to leave anyway and is holding him back.

Or is he simply not good enough?
I believe he deserved a chance but hasn't gotten it as much as others have.


{Ed001's Note - it depends on where you intend to play him, but personally I do not see a fit for him in the current system. He should be playing a number 10 role and you don't have that in your team most of the time and when you do, Pogba occupies it for some reason.}

1.) 28 Nov 2018 12:19:46
Should have replaced Mata and/ or Fellaini's place in the squad over the summer. One of if not the only player in our squad capable of setting a desirable tempo and I'd have had him starting both last night and against Palace.



11 Dec 2017 07:55:04
The defeat doesn't hurt as much as the manner of it does.
40 minutes and we concede and then suddenly our players remember young etc remember that there is a thing called stepping out of the half-line.
City won because they created far more chances.
It was a scrappy game and on another day it could have been just a 0-0.
We missed Pogba, but other 10 were first choice players, and you can't always have the best XI.
The issue was the fight and the lack of appetite, why did we not press them, there were so many times when De Bruyne and Fernandinho had all the time in the world to look for a pass.
We really lack a leader, Herrera looked like he could be one, but has regressed. You know someone who'll probably be disappointed for a week. That's when I feel we miss someone like Ferdinand or someone who'll give the players a rollicking when they play shit.
We missed Pogba/ Carrick who can atleast pick a pass, when Lindelof came on the passing from the back wasn't dreadful and maybe it was a game where Blind, Lindelof and Smalling should have started centrally so that ball could be played from behind and not the master hoofer Rojo who just invited pressure. It was like a bottom of the league trying to escape the not that great attacking force of city. This should have resulted in a far better result.


1.) 11 Dec 2017 08:31:47
When we don't have pogba we don't look like anywhere near the same team

One player doesn't make a team. But atm whenever pogba hasn't played we seem like we don't know how to play we don't attack with the same intensity.

I don't think city will drop 12 points they are just miles ahead the way they are playing.

Come on noucamp. Give Me the legend of John Jenson over some fancy Dan like Cesc.
Jenson for me falls into the same bracket of Park. A player that transcends ability for fans and regardless of how the game goes one that the fans love.
I got the idiot that is Lee Hughes!

We have Lindelof as first choice, a new CB needs to come definitely, and my third choice would be Tuanzebe as he has deserved a run out in the team.
I thinking going with 5 CBs in a season is decent backup.
I would only keep 2 of Jones, Smalling, Bailly and Rojo now.
And when an offer comes for any one of them we should cut him loose.
5 CBs, AWB, Dalot, Young and Shaw is decent cover for a season. Then there are young players in the academy we could use if more people get injured.

With the way its panning out ken, I feel the same.
But Jose would take note that how he's let guys like Lukaku, De Bruyne, Salah etc leave and then later on they've doubled or tripled their values.
I personally would like him to a little more patient than he usually is, because Martial is a special talent, who has lost his way due to whatever reasons.
I'm sure the LVG's school of coaching and Deschamps tactics haven't helped him one bit, but maybe Martial toughens up, because I can't remember which game it was recently, when he played up top, he worked his socks off and Rooney was on the left.
I know stats mean bollocks, but there was this matrix where Perisic was compared to Martial, and Martial seemed to have a better score in almost all the attributes in a season where Martial struggled.
If he doesn't leave this summer, the next 6 months would decide his future.
I don't think the likes of Shaw, Martial have more than 6 months to prove themselves.

He deserves another season, he's shown much more than Depay or Januzaj has. He scored 17 goals in his debut season, and was average this season.
A preseason can do wonders and with the possibility of another French striker/ winger in Griezmann maybe he'll improve.
Still feel its early to let him leave, as he's had 1 wonderful season and another sub-par season.

The fact that Ole has come into the club and seen the raw potential and talent of Martial, Rashford and Greenwood and promised them a lot of gametime is testament to the fact that he can see a good striking talent.
Lukaku would have slowed down the progress of others.
Ole gave Martial his shirt back, which should have never been taken in the first place.
Martial, Rashford and Greenwood are probably the hardest strikers to defend against, all good dribblers, ball pacy, and comfortable anywhere in front 3.
If it works out it's deadly.
Last year we kept playing Rashford, lingard and martial until all of them went injured.
I would really like Ole to rotate a little with Dan James and Greenwood and Angel Gomes.

An Alderweireld signing would not have been the worst option if Maguire isn't happening, a 3 year contract for a short term yet quality CB is not a bad transfer.

From what little I saw of him over the videos, he seems like a busy one touch passes guy, who scored an insane amount of goals last season for a midfielder.
McTominay sitting and Bruno and another midfielder playing further ahead against bottom teams isn't a bad move.
Even city do that.
