word in and around manchester is wayne rooney has signed a new deal and will be announced with the matter deal today.


1.) Good aul Juan Matter

2.) Really that's funny I live in Salford about 15 mins walk away from old Trafford and I can tell you now there is no rumour about rooney signing a new contract go around here. I hope your right but not sure you are

3.) Michael Owen has also said on Twitter for Utd fans to expect good news. Hope its true would be massive for the club

4.) When I say in and around manchester I don't mean you're average gossip in the local newsagents so you wouldn't know about it yet, just what i'm told of certian fella with good contacts.

5.) Ive spelled mata wrong aswell, early mornings and hungover :-)

6.) Is juan mata walking to Manchester for is medical seems to be taking abit of time?

{Ed002's Note - There is something that needs addressing first.}

7.) Juan Mata was waiting on Thursday night for Chelsea to formally sign off his £37 million transfer to Manchester United after growing increasingly frustrated with the club’s failure to sanction his departure for a medical at Old Trafford.

Despite agreeing a four-and-a-half year contract worth £150,000-a-week at United, Mata remained in London on Thursday due to Chelsea’s refusal to complete the transfer agreement with the Premier League champions.

Ground staff at United’s Aon Training Complex at Carrington had arrived early on Thursday morning to prepare a helipad in order for the Spain midfielder to fly north for a medical.

But with Chelsea delaying Mata’s departure until they had completed the signing of FC Basel’s Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah, United were unable to proceed with the medical examination in Manchester.

8.) Stretfordender1980, you're not that drunk fan that rang 999 to ask to speak to Sir Alex are you? being hung over and all? lol :)

9.) This one is gathering momentum and there's no reason why it can't be true either. United are throwing big money at Chelsea, we may have chose to throw it at Rooney aswell and meet his demands. Rooney signing a new deal right now would do more for the club in the long term than saving money on his contract. The club needs a huge boost after recent results and this along with Mata signing would more than fit the bill.

So we've beat the noisy neighbours, friendly or not it's always nice to see, Good job Bryan Robson was such a great player though, thinking Lukuka is Right footed and Paddy having too embarrassingly correct him was so painful for me 🙈😂 #Homework.

Well Angel Gomes turns 17 in August, I'm preying Jose unleashes him in the league cup this year, there's been lots of youngsters over hyped gone over the years but this kid is going to be one of the worlds best in future and I can't wait to witness it.


1.) 22 Jun 2017 13:31:37
Nothing quite like hyping up a player too much.

Hope he's eased in and we start to see the best of him in 3 years time.

2.) 22 Jun 2017 13:45:22
Don't we usually wait until one of our youngens scores a brace against Sunderland before we label him a future worlds best?

3.) 22 Jun 2017 14:15:39
If that's the case RedRosie then we might be waiting a while for another youngster to come through. Unless we draw Sunderland in one of the cups.

As with Angel Gomes, he isn't physically ready for the EPL, we need to send him out on loan to a less physically demanding league to gain experience at a higher level while he grows into his body. Portugal might be an option, but probably not until next year.

4.) 22 Jun 2017 15:36:27
I think he will stay at Utd for the upcoming season. He's only 17 and probably too young for a loan move yet. He's still an U18 player. I think a few league cup games, EPL games and hopefully if we qualify from the CL group stages with a game or two to spare, he might've get some extra experience of European football.
He's still young and we're expecting far too much from him. He does look like a gem of a player. I hope that he, harrop, Mitchell, TFM, Tuanzebe, McTominay all go to USA on pre season.



10 Jun 2017 18:59:19
joe hart putting himself in the shop window good and proper. Absolute clown of a goalkeeper and has been for years.


1.) 10 Jun 2017 19:46:27

Please note the restrained, polite language!

2.) 11 Jun 2017 00:28:37
would rather put a pitch fork in goals would probably move more.



14 Apr 2017 23:55:26
anyone catch tonight's premier league preview show? Luke Shaw dosent do many interviews but was on tonight, decided not to say gaffer or manager just referred to him as mourinho 😂 Not making things any easier for himself is he.


1.) 15 Apr 2017 01:29:55
I thought he looked stoned :-)

{Ed007's Note - Imagine Rooney gave that interview!}

2.) 15 Apr 2017 09:21:07
If anyone would know, Herbie :)

3.) 15 Apr 2017 21:12:58
Its in the name Noucamp :-)



20 Feb 2017 16:29:22
I try to watch as much football as possible when not working but there's a handful of sides Sunderland being one of them where I just don't bother too watch so just wondered if anyone had seen much of Januzaj this year, I no Jose sent him on loan to a premier league club because he sees him as part of Manchester United's future but will this still be the case after his spell at Sunderland, has he performed well and will he be part of the squad next year?


1.) 20 Feb 2017 16:44:33
Like you Stretford I haven't watched too much of Sunderland this season. I know he has had a couple of good games recently (or some good moments in games) . We have read and heard a hell of a lot more about Perreira than Januzaj this season, which for Januzaj is very concerning considering he is playing in the EPL and Perreira for a very poor Spanish outfit. Considering all the hype about Januzaj a couple of years ago I would expect the press to be all over anything he does like a rash, but it's almost radio silence.

I'd expect him to be moved on come the summer, £10m from an Italian team would be my bet. Should have cashed in when we could have I fear.

2.) 20 Feb 2017 17:41:20
Unfortunately he too inconsistent to ever be a top player, personally think he has the same attitude as Balotelli and co, not professional enough to play at a top team, another kid that has had money thrown at him at a young age and he let it go to his head, get rid of him this summer, he be in China in a few years for his big day.

3.) 20 Feb 2017 18:26:05
I don't think he's been good enough. But he hasn't been shocking too. I still think he might get another chance before he's gone. Totally depends on his mentality. Depay and Morgan made sure they left us.
I would get stick but I still think he has better attributes than Lingard but he's never performed for us.
Everyone has improved under Jose (almost) . I think Januzaj may do. But most likely it's goodbye for him I guess. Same for Varela.

4.) 20 Feb 2017 18:41:34
I think Sunderland is his level, but he's struggled to cement a place there so I can't see him doing so in a title challenging side.

I really hope as I'm wrong as I hate to say somebody can be incapable of achieving something they work hard for, but it's the hard work which seems to be lacking.

5.) 20 Feb 2017 20:35:00
He's another Nani, capable of great moments but lacking the consistency to demand a starting place at a top club.
Some players get around a lack of work rate by constantly producing the goods in offensive play.
Januzaj like Nani is capable of putting either a 9 out of 10 or a 4 out of 10 performace in any given match.

6.) 21 Feb 2017 00:09:43
Shappy I think you have got it spot on. The lad def has talent but talent has to be allied to serious hard work and he appears to lack the mental fortitude necessary to be a top star. Shame really to see such potential wasted.

7.) 21 Feb 2017 00:34:53
I think you are being very harsh there shappy. Adnan has done nothing yet to show he can be as good as Nani was. Nani was a much better player than some give him credit for, possibly because eveyone expected the next Roni.

8.) 21 Feb 2017 08:38:33
Dodgy, I think Nani may have been our player of the season once upon a time. I really liked Nani, partially for the way he played the game, I'll never forget is micky taking antics against Arsenal, and partially because we share the same birthday. Lol.

When he was on form he was one of the best players in the league, the issue was no one not even Nani himself knew when he was going to be on form.

Adnan isn't at Nani's level yet, but he has as much potential. The reason I liken him to Nani is down to the erractic nature of his form.

9.) 21 Feb 2017 08:54:55
I have actually watched sunderland more than a few times, partly thanks to Fantasy and partly because it is like an ex-utd team. Januzaj should be shipped out, not worth any more time judging by current form. Actually disappointed because I had high hopes for the lad, and him being reunited with the coach that gave him the chance in the 1st place also gave me new hope but to no significant avail.
From the various responses above, I don't think he is better than Lingard, more talented maybe but talent only gets you that far.
I think Nani was far better than him although i can understand the hot and cold comparison.
I have also read a lot about Perreira but not watched even a full game. I have always thought that the La Liga is a more player friendly league as in EPL flops can shine there. (But that is a debate for another thread)

10.) 21 Feb 2017 10:06:57
Don't like bashing our own players. But Janazaj has done nothing over the last 3/ 4 seasons with us or out on loan to suggest he is anywhere near good enough for us. I could count on one hand the amount of quality games he had for us. He was over hyped by our fans, and hasn't lived up to it. He isn't and will never be good enough to play this level. And to be honest when I've seen him at Sunderland he looks no better than anyone else there. Championship player for me.

11.) 21 Feb 2017 11:40:14
mbd I think Pereira has what it takes to make it here. He's shined in the reserves, in Granada (which are a shocking team), and in Brazil.
I think it's very difficult for a player to adjust in a new league, as the demands are different.
I have not seen many matches, but whenever I have seen him, he always looks positive, he is looking to make a pass forward and not pass it back to the centre-backs and he has a wicked turn and good set piece delivery. And good performances should be reward as unlike Januzaj I think he deserves to get a fair crack at the first team.

12.) 21 Feb 2017 12:28:20
I like Pereira but in the best interest of him he needs to leave United this summer for a team like Sevilla, Valencia

I have Rooney, Pogba, Mata and potentially Griezmann over him in the "number 10" role next season, just think he won't get a look in at the club.

13.) 21 Feb 2017 12:49:45
Who was the guy on here a few years back, that always defended Nani. To the point where we thought it probably was Nani himself posting?

14.) 21 Feb 2017 13:15:47
Stevie that was Percy. He was funny, at one point I thought he was Nani. Lol.

15.) 21 Feb 2017 13:37:25
With Rashford, Martial, Mkhitaryan, Mata and maybe even Lingard already at the club plus the likelihood of a top addition or two in the summer I don't see where Januzaj fits in. Pereira may have a slim chance.

Nani did have a couple of good seasons, particularly before Valencia arrived and he was shifted from the right to the left. Januzaj has had maybe 2 good games. No comparison if you ask me.

16.) 21 Feb 2017 16:02:38
My mate is a massive Sunderland fan and he says he just don't know how to take Adnan. Like we stated, he can play great and then be missing the next game. He actually feels that he plays better after coming on as a sub. I watched Adnan in the youth team and he looked amazing. Moyes brought him through and played him LW for a few games and he looked great. Fulham away he dominated the game and set up RVP if I remember right. But his move to the first team came too soon in my eyes. I think the club was worried we would have another Pogba on our hands and pushed him too early. Shame but it is what it is. He just wasnt ready for the next step. Italy or Spain is my guess.

Personally hope he's not going there to play that role, valuable premier league experience will do him the world of good but ideally you want him occupying a position where he could play for us in the future.

Rose is better than Bertrand as Is Shaw when he's fit. Would be suicide if Spurs sold both full backs in the same summer without pushing on in the market themselves.

Man City 1st and Liverpool 2nd? couldn't bring myself to say them words I really couldn't let alone openly start a thread on it. 1 Manchester United, 2 Man City, 3 Chelsea, 4 Arsenal, 5 Spurs, 6 Dippers.

I don't think we will turn to anyone if his targets aren't available, panic buys like we did with fellaini is not the answer and I don't think it's a root Jose will go down here, Carrick will still give u a quality 20 games a season, Herrera can play that role although I prefer him pressing higher up at tempo, and hopefully pereira and TFM will prove to be valuable squad players if called upon.

Just my opinion but if we buy a CDM to complement pogba and Herrera in the middle which is the correct move I'd love us to pay whatever it costs to bring in Kyle walker at right back, if we are playing 4-4-3 which I'm presuming we will as pogba needs freed up and not restricted playing in a two then miki will play tucked in off the right so it's vital we then get someone bombing up and down the right giving us width and a threat on that side, Valencia will provide width and an outlet as always but without the threat, his final ball is horrific. Peresic on the left and we are then looking like an actual team with attacking intent from all over the pitch.

I'm not concerned about central midfield, I think it's very strong, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric do that to everybody, they are blessed with fantastic technical ability and brains 2 steps ahead of everyone else. I think we are a major force in the premier league this season and I'm expecting a good champions league also. If we can address the wide areas whether that be full back or wingers or praise the lord both i'd be getting really aroused about this season. Roll on Sunday can't wait.

Attack is the best form of defence, two world class outfield players that would get into any team over a goalkeeper any day even though I think he's currently the best in the world between the sticks. You can still be massively successful without the best goalkeeper when you have Tony Kroos in midfield and the other team is chasing shadows while he runs the game with a cigar in his mouth.

Verrati dosent want to come Ronnie, not everyone wants to play in the premier league and he is one of them. We emptied our pockets on Di Maria someone who's head was elsewhere and look how that turned out.
