Pogba jones De Gea.

2.) 23 Jan 2018 09:02:34
Matic v

Bailly is a good shout for the future.

3.) 23 Jan 2018 20:42:02
Sanchez (when we play City and Arsenal)
And then back to Pogba 😆😆.

If Jose signs an extension, what would be the sentiments here?

I would want stability hence i am all for it.
Jose"s pragmatism in some away games aside against the top teams vying for champions league spot aside, Jose's track record, cv and name would more than likely bring titles, trophies and big signings.

If he is here for the long haul i hope he will bring in more of the academy players and gives them more opportunities.

Bringing in Carrick into the coaching set up seems a good move.

Thoughts guys?

I hope he extends because I honestly don’t see any superstar or potential superstar managers to replace him at the moment. As frustrating as he can be at times with his style of play, we have improved under him, have improved the overall talent level while bringing through youth and lowering the squad age overall. Also, remember when we had to go above and beyond in crazy ways to try and sign big players under moyes and lvg, under Jose big players want to come to rainy Manchester. That’s a huge power to have. I think given a long run at the club he’ll
Continue to move his playing style towards the attacking tradition of the the club, finding a balance that entertains and gets results. Again, he still costs us points settling for draws, but that’s why he wins knockout tournaments like the CL, he just doesn’t lose. But I think he’s matured (ignoring the Conte nonsense) as a manager and won’t have the eventual blowup that was his calling card. City have thrown the season on its head, but we’re through the CL and doing well in the league relatively speaking. If I have to put my money on the table i'd much rather put it on Jose in years 3-5 than some random new manager in seasons 1-3.

2.) 23 Jan 2018 10:25:04
Great post KG agree with all of that. We couldn’t attract any top players under LVG and Moyes but under Jose we have signed some massive players. Granted we have thrown a lot of money but players want to see potential and a chance to win trophies and we must be a very attractive proposition at the moment for a lot of players. I can see Jose staying for another 2-3 years after his contract and then I think we have a succession plan in place. Never know Carrick could be our next manager 😂😉. Imagine that.

Guys wats your top 3 favourite united season.

Mine would be

1. 95 96 the emergence of e class of 92 helped in the start of Fergies empire though he had won e league twice before.

2. 98 99 No reason needed. Name on the trophy. still tear up thinking

3. 07 08 Cristianos brilliance, Hargreaves free kick vs Arsenal, Nanis thunderbolt vs Spurs, scholesy goal vs Barca, . Terrys miss!

92/ 93 and that league title after such a wait.

98/ 99 again obvious.

07/ 08 again obvious.

2.) 22 Jan 2018 13:01:17
92-93, first title in 26 years.
93-94, first double and showed it wasn’t a fluke.
98-99,stunning football, a fairytale season, an incredible treble

It’s easy to forget how good that first team was, especially when we added Keane. Pace power, finesse, up for a fight, up for the beautiful game. Cantona pulling the strings, Hughes still on fire, they were a joy to behold

And the ‘99 team operated on the basis of you score 3, we’ll score 4. The FA Cup semi final was immense, a man down, facing a penalty in the last minute yet we still won. And Keane’s leadership when he knew he would miss the Champions League final was incredible.

3.) 22 Jan 2018 14:00:21
85 Whiteside fa cup goal
93 title
99 treble.

4.) 22 Jan 2018 14:38:41

85 Whiteside goal. Morans sending off. Everton going for a treble if memory serves me right. my first time supporting united in a final. what a day.

5.) 22 Jan 2018 16:25:36
Great day/ weekend.

6.) 22 Jan 2018 17:37:31
1977 my first fa cup final
92/ 3 first league title in my lifetime
99 just awesome.

7.) 22 Jan 2018 17:53:55
93/ 94 my fav team in my life time

2007/ 08 best utd team in my life time

08/ 09 should have won it all.



22 Jan 2018 11:45:01
Guys, do you think this is it?
Any more possible incomings?
Mahrez perhaps.?

If we were playing a 4-2-3-1, a front 4 of martial ( lwing) sanchez ( number 10) luka ( number 9), mahrez (rwing) doesn't look shabby does it?

united roses

1.) 22 Jan 2018 12:31:55
Greedy ;-)

I got slated for suggesting Mahrez in the summer but still maintain he'd hit another level with us or any of the other "Top 6" clubs, the latter looking more likely though as with his return to form I can see either Liverpool, Arsenal, Spurs or Chelsea trying to sign him.

2.) 22 Jan 2018 12:19:34
I don't want to see Rashford pushed out. The kid will have a dip in form as all kids do but he has real talent and we will now see if he has the desire to push on.

If I were him Id be staying after training and working on my finishing, he is likely to get 20 minutes here and there so when a chance comes got to take it. His decision making is poor but he is learning.

3.) 22 Jan 2018 12:44:55
I'll be buying another midfielder. Fred will be good for us but looks city bound.

4.) 22 Jan 2018 13:01:18
Rashford stay after training. Saw a story that Lingatd has been staying after training and asking for advice from Zlatan. Its been paying off.

5.) 22 Jan 2018 13:04:34
We rarely buy in January so I don’t think we will see anyone else this window. I think Sanchez has been signed as it was too good an opportunity to miss.

We do need to see Rash and Martial show some consistency, they are both very talented but have been flitting in and out. Martial is scoring great goals but I still think he needs to be more involved. Rash needs to go back to basics, he seems to have lost his way slightly. We also have Shaw making a claim for the LB spot so this summer’s business will be interesting. Let’s assume Sanchez makes the difference in the final third (not exactly a big assumption is it) then I still think CM is where we often look light.

6.) 22 Jan 2018 14:01:14
Jose has said 2 in during the summer.

7.) 22 Jan 2018 14:52:48
Im old enough to remember Busby saying Best wouldn't leave the training pitch -had his own routine he practiced hitting and heading a ball through a tyre on a piece of rope which was attached to the crossbar was one of them. 10 in a row, left foot, right foot and head, sometimes with the tyre swinging. once he did 10 in a row he could move on.

Harry Kane said last year when he got farmed out on loan a few seasons back it just made him stay behind and practice.

SAF said the same about Ronaldo and Beckham. Red Nev said in his autobiography both he and Phil thought they had to do extra sessions just to be in the first team squad as they weren't as gifted as a lot of others.



21 Jan 2018 11:59:43
If we can somehow cut City"s lead to 6 points by the time we play them, then its squeaky bum time.

I doubt we could overhaul em but if by the end of the season, we finish second behind City by single digit, win a cup or 2 ( long shot i know), with talk of Jose extending his contract and Sanchez arrival then i will be happy . not ecstatic but happy. We are United we are obligated to fight for the league.

Would it constitute a decent season if any of the above happen guys?

The moyes effect set us back. think most fans would not underestimate how damaging shorterm and long term that appointment had on us.

Thought the 2014- 2016 purchases were a bit scatter gun with Falcao ( we had 4 strikers so no need for him), Di Maria ( heart was not in it), Schneiderlin ( decent squad player but we needed more in midfield, Bastian (unfit) .

Glad that up to now Bailly, Matic, Pogba, Lukaku, Lindelof have been good. not great as yet but getting there in terms of individual performances.

So Sanchez purchase is more than welcomed and adds that touch of world class into the forward line.

Think we all can agree that in some games a midfield 3 is needed. Herreras declining form in 2017, Carricks retiring and fellaini apparent contract stand off makes signing 1 or 2central midfield a priority.

If we go big then it has to be Dybala. Vidal on his last leg. If signed Vidal then his role would be as cover to matic and playing the odd 15-20 games mostly cup and from the bench. wouldn't think it would appeal to him.
