Read somewhere that United want Sergi Roberto (personally I think it's bull news just made for the sake of selling papers) . But I just love the guy, so much talent and can play a couple of positions. Doesn't get the game time he wants at Barcelona but can't see him getting minutes at United either.

He was constantly played out of position at Barcelona is the press are to be believed 40m euros is far too much.


2.) 07 Aug 2017 12:49:53
Sounds like Barcelona trying to use Utd to get him sold.

What happened to the young RB we have on loan to Real Madrid B. I think Varela was his name.

Didn't get to see the match last night. But people who have seen Mctominay play can you guys tell how did he perform. What kind of a player is he? Who is he closer to in style of play, Matic, Herrera or someone else? Jose has been praising him.

sailor

1.) 01 Nov 2017 18:50:50
Sailor. He was very tidy in possession and disciplined positionally. He made good runs into the box and that is something herrera has been missing so far this season.
Looks like a jose type player in nany regards. In style he is i would liken him to a young carrick when he was breaking through at west ham. He can only aspire to be as good as carrick but it would be a good target for him.
His game will develop as he gains experience its great for him at the moment it will be interesting to see if he gets game or bench time when pogba and fellaini return. He is certainly making the most of his chance. He is 20 so to be playing a cl game for man united is a massive vote of confidence by jose.

I had written a post long back that we might never see the best of Mkhitaryan due to our playing style. This is not a dig at Mourinho. He wants his players working in a particular manner but it has to be his ( his scouts) incompetence that they thought Mkhitaryan would adapt to it. Players like him and Martial are not being given enough freedom and they in turn aren't adapting to his style.
I'm sure if Sterling and Jesus were playing for us they wouldn't be anywhere near the top scorers. Same goes for Martial and Mkhitaryan, if they were somewhere else they would be more dominant. What I think the next step should be is for the board to figure out how long they want Mourinho at the helm. If they want him for the next 4-5 years then it be best to move these guys on (and a few others) and build a team that mourinho wants. If they already have someone in mind to replace him in a couple of season then maybe loan Martial, Shaw out next season if the next manager wants them when he comes.

You know Martial scored the winner yesterday? I think he’s fine just where he is.

Sounds like an excuse for Miki to me, he’s been given a lot of freedom, yesterday we played with 3 centre backs and 2 defensive midfielders, how much more freedom does he need?


2.) 29 Oct 2017 22:47:40
Absolute tosh! They each need to knuckle down and play better.

AM has done this and his influence and work rate has increased. He is currently better impacting from the bench than from the start, but he is pushing Rash all the time.

Miki is going through a bad patch, the number of times he is losing the ball is simply unacceptable for the play maker in your team. He is not losing it going for high risk high reward passes, he is doing the simple stuff very badly. I think Pogba and Mata back in the team should help him, but he also needs to put some extra work in on the training ground.


3.) 29 Oct 2017 23:50:36
Sorry sailor disagree with everything you have said. Martial has stepped up considerably this year and is showing glimpses of the huge potential he has. I agreed with neville’s assessment yesterday that he is only playing at 85%. But why get rid when it will cost us £60+ to replace him for someone that may take just as long to settle and adapt to the team and the league? Let’s say for instance we get lemar, whose to say he will not perform more inconsistently than martial. Personally I am quite pleased with the impact and drive Tony has shied this season and he looks settled and ready to really push on because I believe he is up there with Mbappe and ousmane Dembele in terms of ‘potential’.

Onto miki, again very talented by I agree with dodgey that he gives that ball away far too much. Looks like he is struggling to do the basics properly and perhaps needs a spell on the bench. He is still our most creative player when fully firing so I think he will come out this rut and be ok. Throughout a season players drift in and out of form and I think we are experiencing this with several players such as lukaku, miki, mata. But I think once we get pogba back it will be a huge boost. Add Zlatan and Rojo to the mix with Fellaini as well and we should be firing on all cyclinders over a busy Xmas period where the title can be one and lost in the space of 3 games.


4.) 30 Oct 2017 00:15:06
Form or lack of it may be temporary but Mikki is a class act.


5.) 30 Oct 2017 11:45:19
I think you guys didn't get my point. I was saying that for me Martial is on level with Sterling and Jesus currently but still our style of play doesn't allow him to do what he's actually good at. That's why I made the point that Jesus and sterling in our team and style wouldn't be anywhere near top scorers. And I don't see him being utilized in the correct way under Jose. If we have long term plans for Jose then it just might be better for United as well as martial to move on.


6.) 30 Oct 2017 12:23:51
I got your point Sailor. Just disagree. Miki is not playing well. Not because of Jose, not because of Pogba, he is just not performing.

If he was getting no touches on the ball, and was isolated then I could see your point of view. Saturday he had the ball to feet with runners around him and gave it away with lame passes. It is poor form and he needs to address it.

JM is pushing both Martial and Rash by having them compete for one spot in the team. It is working well in my opinion, they are both pushing each other. Martial is doing the work and progressing all the time.


7.) 30 Oct 2017 13:45:38
I think its as simple as Mkhitaryan maybe isn't as good as we hoped. He struggled for much of last season and had a good patch of form in the latter stages of the Europa league, in the EPL he had flashes of brilliance but for the most part was very inconsistent. The difference is when Pogba and co were fit they stepped up to the mark more often than not. Now key players are out we are looking to players like Mkhitaryan to step up and he isn't. I don't think his form has dropped off, we are just noticing his inconsitencies more now.

I like him and I want him to be a success, I was over the moon when we signed him. But I just don't think he will be the player we were hoping he would be for us. He's been at the club for 15 months now, at his age he should be a key player by now.


8.) 30 Oct 2017 14:08:44
Dodgy, he was atrocious against Burnley, when he gets to start he has been disappointing. It's very frustrating as he has huge talent but I'm still seeing it this year. There is the odd flash here and there but nothing gconsistent or sustained. I think it's in his head.


9.) 30 Oct 2017 14:39:56
GDS2

Mhkitaryan has basically been given a “hall pass” by Mourinho.
If my wife did that to me, I’d be all over it ;) .

Maybe drop Mhkitaryan and play Mata. Problem solved. I think ED002 once mentioned that Mhkitaryan sulked from time to time or something to that effect.


10.) 31 Oct 2017 01:10:26
Something is obviously not right with Mikki at the moment but it may just be a case of him needing a long run so he gains confidence.


 

 

21 Oct 2017 15:41:59
It was a nice fight for the title this year. Last year it was 3 games but this time we gave tough competition till October.
Let's be honest I don't see City dropping points with their attack.

sailor

1.) 21 Oct 2017 17:12:02
Sailor,

I’ll be you any money you want that city don’t go through the whole season without dropping any points.


2.) 21 Oct 2017 17:54:27
If a team relies on other teams dropping points then the race is already half lost.
But still if we have to talk about it, then with their depth and style of play I don't see City being beaten so easily. Of course they will drop points but those will be very few compared to us.

Dybala is in some fine form these days.

sailor

1.) 25 Sep 2017 12:34:08
I think he's "worth" more than any team can afford to pay.


2.) 25 Sep 2017 12:44:24
He is playing really well and scoring, has All ready nearly got as many as last season .
Pjanic is also a star in that juve team, great player.


3.) 25 Sep 2017 16:35:07
Looking like he's going to be one hell of a player. I'd love to see him paired with Lukaku for us. But I think he'll end up at Real Madrid or Barcelona sadly. God knows what he's worth in today's market, has to probably be north of 150m now.


4.) 25 Sep 2017 16:47:29
Didn't we recently employ someone from juventus who dealt with the recruitment there? I believe he was heavily involved in buying Dybala originally? For those of us who wants some straws to clutch at.


5.) 26 Sep 2017 07:37:56
Funny part is that dybala earns less than Lingard.

The most important thing to come out of Arsenal's thrashing is United fans going mental to sign Alexis Sanchez. So many tweets asking the club to announce Sanchez.

sailor

1.) 29 Aug 2017 11:05:29
I cringe at all them tweets, you can tell it's a bunch of armchair fans who never go to games just demanding new players yet give nothing back to the club.


2.) 29 Aug 2017 11:51:58
Why would everyone of them be "armchair fans"

Does it make anyone less of a fan because they don't go to the games?

Does it make me less of a fan because I no longer have my season ticket.

I still watch every game and buy the top doesn't mean I'm less of a fan than someone who goes to every game.

I still pay a subscription to the tv company's and internet provider who I use to watch the games.

I wasn't wanting a debate ed004 I just said my opinion on the transfer beggers on Twitter. If an arm chair fan has took it personally than I apologise for that.

Yh we settled this debate ages ago and came to the consensus that i am the ultimate united fan as i sleep in man united branded pyjamas.


7.) 29 Aug 2017 16:39:37
Stretford "arm chair fan" hasn't offended me as I don't consider myself to be an armchair fan nor anyone else to be one that doesn't have a season ticket.

If it wasn't for the billions of arm chair fans and there worthless pennies as you call them the club wouldn't be anywhere near the club we are.


8.) 29 Aug 2017 18:00:12
I hate when people talk about 'arm chair fans' and 'deadwood players'. so are we saying that you can only support a club when you hold a season ticket? Does it mean you support our club more because you don't go everyweek? No it doesn't.


9.) 29 Aug 2017 18:34:39
There will always be fans that think they are better fans or support the cub in a better way than the next man. Unfortunatly we see comments like that on here from time to time. Its hard to ignore the arrogance and ignorance of such statements but you have to understand that they are probably coming from very small minded arrogant people full of their own importance.

{Ed001's Note - don't worry ken, I deleted the bit where you said you know you are a far better fan than any of them..... ;-)


10.) 29 Aug 2017 20:19:41
Without the so called armchair fans and the mountains of cash that they pay in tv subscriptions to watch their clubs then the ridiculous amounts of money we all spend on players wouldn't exist.

Also I will say this I'm an armchair fan I only get to go about 6/ 7 times a season and it's a massive deal for me to go at a lot of expense I can assure you that I love the club as much as anyone including the "real fans"


11.) 29 Aug 2017 23:06:52
Thanks 001 but everybody supports the club in their own way. We will all disagree on team selection on players ability and contribution. We will agree and disagree with players bought and sold and managerial appointments etc etc. But at the end of the day we all want the same thing and that is for the club to be thriving, succesful and hope that the club and all its staff conduct themselves in a good manner so that we can all continue to be proud of the club we love. I sort if assume that is what 99% of supporters want for and from their club of choice.

{Ed001's Note - I know mate I was kidding. Just to be clear I never deleted anything from ken's posts other than his declarations of undying love for me.}


12.) 30 Aug 2017 07:37:59

Just because we don't have Griezman doesn't make him better than Mkhi and Mata. We've waited whole of last season for Mkhitaryan to get familiar to the league and it doesn't make sense to shift him to the right for someone who isn't even at the club. Who knows what will happen till next summer. Maybe Monaco produce one more world class player and we go all out for him rather than Griezman.

It's a nearly done deal to City. All that is holding the transfer is Arsenal's last bit of self respect. Once they come up with how to face the fans, the deal will go through.

From what I know mbappe is going to PSG for €180m which has been halted by the UEFA for some reason so now they are trying for a loan with future buying.
So this will rule out move to Real.

Ed though I'm a big fan of Mata, he just hasn't performed to a world class level for United which is what is required by the club. If we look at Mkhitaryan and Mata as individual players then any team would be privileged to have them. We have seen them perform very well for other teams as well. Maybe it's our style of play or something else but they are not performing to the standard. Kagawa is another example.
I'm not saying Andreas Pereira would absolutely tear up the league but he's young and with playing time under his belt he would shine. He has trained in the academy so of course he knows what it takes to play in England. Better than buying another player and waiting for him to deliver.

sailor

{Ed025's Note - i will have that sailor, the point i was making is that miki has been poor for a while so why not give mata a shot, it might give miki a wake up call and it could be the making of mata, if it does neither then ship them out and buy someone who can do the job, pogba is a big miss which certainly does not help mate..

With Mkhitaryan not performing upto the level it is a possibility that we might go to buy someone next summer. But I would like to see Andreas play there instead of splashing the cash.

sailor

{Ed025's Note - how about just using mata in his natural position and putting miki on the bench sailor?..
