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.

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.

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.

Indeed ed.



16 Jul 2017 05:45:52
I couldn't watch the match as I was working at the time.
How did Andreas Pereira fare?
And did Axel Tuanzebe play midfield again?
And what formation did we play?


1.) 16 Jul 2017 05:58:48
He came on second half. Given the role of holding player in 2 man midfield with Pogba (with 3 at the back formation) . Kept it simple. Need more composure in that role defensively. Buy we all know that's really not that role. He is excellent further up where Makhi was playing or on the wings as per 1st half formation.

2.) 16 Jul 2017 10:28:39
Miki, Rash, Pogba, Martial were all very good. Lukaku looked heavy and struggled taking the ball cleanly and getting rid of it. Needs to improve on his first touch and moving the ball quicker.

I think physically a lot of the guys are far from being match fit and need to work off some of the extras put on during their break.

3.) 16 Jul 2017 13:29:23
We played 3-4-1-2 both halves. Pereira played next to Pogba, smooth and simple on the ball, but he looked lightweight on defense. Tuanzebe was the left center back next to Lindelof and Bailly. He looked very solid, tight to his man always, and calm with the ball.



09 Jul 2017 14:40:29
Very happy to see the likes of Andreas Pereira, McTominay, Fosu, Tuanzebe and Demetri Mitchell joining the tour.
Harrop would have also travelled had he not left.
I know the pressure wasn't there when we played the last few games, but maybe just maybe Mitchell gets 10-15 games this season.
He does remind me of Evra with how he gets forward and Jose is a man who can teach anyone to defend.
McTominay seemed like a safe passer kind of a guy who kept it ticking.
The world expects us to sign 5-6 player every window, but maybe 4 would be enough?
With Lukaku, and Lindelof signed, I'd be happy if we sign a midfielder and a winger who plays on the touchline.
Perisic/ Sanchez and Fabinho/ Matuidi would be very decent business.
As in the last few games, I see Jose might try to shift Tuanzebe as a holding midfielder given he's very comfortable on the ball.
Would be great if we let 1-2 of young, darmian, smalling, jones, blind, Shaw leave as the defense looks very bloated.


{Ed004's Note - I agree that's it is great to see the young players heading on tour. Personally I'd be happy with Shaw and Mitchell competing for the left back position. I'd have 4 players for the centre back position ideally with Bailly + Smalling for right side and Lindelof + Rojo for the left side and Tuanzebe as cover. Lastly Valencia + new signing for right back role (hopefully Semedo). It would leave a few players surplus though such as Darmian, Jones and Blind}

1.) 09 Jul 2017 15:14:03
Just curious - why name injured players such as Shaw, Rojo and Young on the tour squad when they're sure not to play? Would have helped to bring more young players on the tour for experience and motivation.
The tour squad again for reference - Eric Bailly, Daley Blind, Michael Carrick, Matteo Darmian, David de Gea, Marouane Fellaini, Tim Fosu-Mensah, Ander Herrera, Phil Jones, Victor Lindelof, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial, Juan Mata, Scott McTominay, Demetri Mitchell, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Andreas Pereira, Joel Pereira, Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford, Marcos Rojo, Sergio Romero, Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling, Axel Tuanzebe, Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young.

2.) 09 Jul 2017 15:58:44
Would've liked to have seen Angel Gomes.

3.) 09 Jul 2017 19:57:22
Young and Rojo might be returning to fitness. I'm not sure how long Rojo is out injured for.

4.) 09 Jul 2017 22:04:56

Gomes is a long way away and was only used in that palace game to break the record. Bit of a passing of the torch thing taking Rooney off and bringing on Gomes. He's quality but let's not push him to the moon just yet.

5.) 09 Jul 2017 23:55:38
A couple if those guys could well push their way into permanent squad players. i'm sure tuanzabe would not be gutted to see a couple of smalling jones rojo or blind leave.
I don't think shaw will be fit until end of Aug so could mitchell impress enough to get a squad spot early in the season.
For me there are some players that need to have a big pre season and to show they want to play for manchester united and they are going to do whatever jose wants them to do and how he wants them to do it. Obviously the new signings fall into this category but also miki mata martial and jessie. From the outside looking in they are the players that he seems to be questioning more than the likes of herrera pogba rash even fellaini. The 4 mentioned above didn't all have a consistently high standard season. They shoeed a few flashes and had some decent runs but all were average or slightly above. Pereira and hopfully perisic will join that group so perhaps one of them will depart. Jessie just signed a new contract so maybe one of the other 3 will be given the push.

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.

He explicitly mentioned in his interview too, that earlier players used to get rich after their career was over, nowadays they get rich at the beginning, and some of them lack the desire after that.
Martial isn't thriving under pressure, with France and under Jose.
At Monaco, and under LVG he was a kid who didn't have to deal with pressure and expectations, and now he's struggling.
His personal life must be affecting him a lot.


{Ed025's Note - its not easy for young guys rohan but they have to adapt mate..

I wanted him to leave because I believe he's an exceptional talent. But where does he play if we sign 2 forwards?
Would Jose trust Rashford and Martial for the goals next season? Unlikely.
He'll sit on the bench and rarely get a consistent run-in.
I would be very very surprised if most of the LVG signings are still here in the next 2 seasons.
Depay, Schweni, Morgan already gone.
I'm sure Jose would let one of Darmian/ Blind leave if the price is right.
Rojo isn't going. Herrera leaving would be mental, but maybe Barcelona show interest, all it takes is "I've dreamt of Barcelona since I was 10 story and he's packing his bags. "
Heard somewhere Romero bought a house in Italy.
Jose doesn't do well with mediocrity, and would take a small 22 odd men squad with most of them being starter level than squad level.

What is it with us and signing players with weird names.
Mkhitaryan, Schweinsteiger, Schneiderlin.
Maybe sign Bernardeschi too 😂.


{Ed001's Note - if you sign Nainggolan I would be very surprised. He smokes more than Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov and Jack Wilshere put together. He makes Andy Carroll look like a teetotal professional athlete. His partying on a nightly basis is legendary in the Rome clubs. It is very doubtful he will have much more than a couple of years left at the top level.

Added to that, he has no interest in leaving the city, he loves it in Rome. I would seriously have worries over a recruitment system that recommends him as a potential signing, rather than steers clear of him.

Oh and I do think he is an excellent player, now, but his lack of real fitness and desire to concentrate on his game would make it extremely difficult to adapt to English football and its much higher paced style.}

Matic, Valencia and Jones.

Valencia because he's been absolutely woeful all season. He's out of position more often than not, and has forgot how to cross.

Matic, because for the last 7-8 months his level of performances have dropped considerably, he's turning 30 and I would personally like more of a Scholes/ Jorginho type of player than Matic in midfield.

Time to cut our losses with Jones, we have carried inconsistent players like him for far too much.

My thoughts on Andreas.
He played a similar role last season and did okay.
Some of his passing range was top quality today, with him switching play very quickly. Reminds me a bit of like Pjanic.
He is quick, shields the ball, can dribble, very importanly confident on the ball and tries to be physical and runs back to win the balls.
He has generally performed well whenever we have given him gametime.
Last season had he not been so impatient he probably would have played a few games.
His loan spells have been okay.
The positive part about him is that he is very good at set pieces and corners. which we are terrible at.
And the fact he is comfortable playing anywhere across the midfield is a bonus.
I would put him ahead of Herrera.
Out of all three I think Rashford is the most suited to play RW than Martial or Sanchez.
I like the fact that Pereira brings a speed of thought to our play.
Something we clearly lack as we often have players that really build up quite slowly.
