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.


1.) 07 Aug 2017 00:10:31
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.

Just saw the jonjo shelvy red card. RFT would be so proud. For the posters not familiar with RFT, he was a legend on this site and he had a man crush on shelvey.

This is the first time ever I've seen matches on MUTV and I actually enjoyed the commentary a lot. They look like highly biased fans commentating. TBH United's matches have been boring over the past few seasons but if I had been hearing to these guys those matches would have been fun.


1.) 03 Aug 2017 11:31:37
I never watch our games on MUTV unless it is the only place broadcasting.
I prefer watching a game with neutral commentary where the commentators talk about every aspect of our game. Praise if we play well and criticize if we play poor. It not only makes the game fun to watch but i always learn from it.

Our commentators on the other hand talks as if we are world beaters. I would like to believe it but we are not there yet.

Paddy Crerrand does my diddies in. He's so one-eyed, it's embarrassing. Bojan is really good, tho.

3.) 03 Aug 2017 12:06:58
David May was like a fan in the pub last night 'go on son', 'hit it, 'well played Michael' etc, absolute nonsense though nice to hear his love for the club coming through.

I thought you were a fan of Paddy Stevie, never heard you suggest otherwise ;) agree on Bojan, he has been very good.

4.) 03 Aug 2017 13:06:43
Paddy used to get me all cringed up but I kind of like him now.
His love for the club and age make him say the most unbelievable things, sometimes you'll like have to squint and look harder maybe you missed something lol.

Though I only watch preseasons and a few games during the season.

5.) 03 Aug 2017 13:09:54
He sounds like he's been wheeled out of the nursing home for the day, just to give the other residents a day's peace and quiet. Bojan humours him, but you can see him twirling his finger to his head, behind Paddy's back.

6.) 03 Aug 2017 13:12:58
Was it David My who got confused about the indirect free kick? "But he didn't pick up the back pass! " "Yeah but he touched the ball David. " "Oh. Is that a free kick? " That was funny.

7.) 03 Aug 2017 13:32:22
the best line was when they were speaking about Matic and commented on the fact he had a real good half and even managed time to pull when going into the crowd to say sorry to the young lady who got the ball in the face.


8.) 03 Aug 2017 14:35:44

Yes had a chuckle at that.


Yep that was May, if you don't know the rules and you are a commentator then learn them!

9.) 03 Aug 2017 17:23:47
I don't think MuTV are employing paddy for his knowledge of the game and his insightful comments. Tbf he looks like he's unsure what day of the week it is, seems to be watching a different game most of the time and his commentary is as biased as it gets.

Doesnt bother much tbh, hardly going to get unbiased commentary on a club tv and i think its really great the club is still sticking by Paddy after all this time.

10.) 03 Aug 2017 18:14:25
Mick, I'm sure he's a lovely fella, but as a commentator, he's up there with Jamie Redknapp.

It's been year after year that Ronaldo has used United's name to get a better contract. Everytime telling how he "united is his home" and as soon as he signs a new contract it's just back to " united is in my past and I will retire at Real".
But still I see you guys so excited at his transfer speculation. I see united fans supporting Real just for Ronaldo. I even saw fans chanting his name instead of supporting United when he was knocking us out of the CL.
This is not a bitter post, I just envy you guys. You people have child like innocence and will believe any thing. We need more people like you and less narcissistic aholes like me.
PS- I believe Ronaldo will even play for City if they give him money, but that's just me.

Did anybody order the condescension with a side order of patronising pat on the head?

2.) 19 Jun 2017 12:09:13
Is he wrong though?

3.) 19 Jun 2017 15:12:36
Maybe not but it isn't too difficult to be both right and not an ass. I do it all the time.



08 Jun 2017 07:06:36
There's a few times ed 002 has mentioned "toxics" and also mentioned he had explained everything earlier. I tried searching but couldn't find anything. Can anyone share the post or tell me what exactly it relates to and how it screwed with the plans of the board. Thanks in advance guys.


1.) 08 Jun 2017 23:19:40
We were m3ant to see out LVGs contract and move for Allegri this year for a 5 year project.

Due to fans not being happy with LVG and showing their discontent at the stadium, the UTD board had to cancel their plan and chose to go with Mourinho.

2.) 08 Jun 2017 23:33:32
do not want to seem toxic but glad they did.

3.) 09 Jun 2017 12:13:52
Is there any plan to go with Allegri in 2020?
He just signed on for the coming three years at Juventus, right?

4.) 09 Jun 2017 12:53:37
I'd assume the plan went out the window with the sacking on LvG.

If i remember correctly LvG was basically supposed to do what he does best - i. e. get young players in, promote youth players and get them comfortable in the premier league. Establish a young, talented team that could challenge for the league, then hand the reigns over to Allegri.



26 Aug 2016 10:01:06
Micky on the right as we need some creativity from that side. We have been lucky to get the first goal in both matches. If we had conceded first then I don't see any how we could have broken the opposition with them sitting deep. For me Mata starts over Rooney at no 10. But won't make that much of a difference.

Since his debut TFM has always looked good in CB position. At right back he makes mistakes, not suited for that position. If he plays for Palace at CB and shines then he can be a long term asset for United.

Jaimej you called it first, beat me to it. Ronaldo does it every year but the beauty is that somehow United fans still believe him.

If Mourinho plays 4-3-3 which suits Pogba the best then I can see Mata in the midfield 3. Alongside Pogba and Herrera / Schneiderlin.
If 4-2-3-1 then Mata replaces Rooney.

I like your optimism but Real showed us why they are better at this moment. They didn't even get out of 1st gear.
Did you guys see Real in matches last season? In classico they equalized with one man down and lost when they were going for the win. Their performances last season were way better than they played yesterday. Still united found it difficult.
The tactics of sitting in so deep definitely didn't suit our team. We have enough players capable of achieving anything but just can't but just don't seem to work together yet. Mkhi can dribble like Isco, Pogba is as much a good player as Kroos or Modric, but the players positioning and runs during attacks were just bad. It's very easy for he other team to break attacks.

Had the chance to attend a couple of games in Turkey. I've never seen anything like that.

Not Bale, but Asensio plus 50m£ should do the trick.

Yup talking about the same Dembele. The thing about Dortmund hat people don't seem to understand is their playing style. Kagawa looked world class with them, so did Mkhitaryan. They didn't light up the PL with us (yet) . Dembele was a replacement for Mkhitaryan and though he is a good player, he is far away in performances. He is not good enough to command a price tag above 30m right now. His playing style at this young age is best suited to Liverpool. Of course he might get better with time at other aspects of his game.

I never understood the hype behind Dembele. He's good but not better than Rashford at this moment. He looks selfish whenever I see him play. Wouldn't say no to him but in this market we'll pay way over the odds. There are other players better than him out there. If Sane and Jesus cost around 30-35m then right now dembele is worth 25m.
