Awful today but I'm not writing him off yet, let him get some of his own players in, get rid of a few lazy bad apples and have a full pre season under our belt.
Can't believe so many have turned on him allready, didn't take long. GIve him a chance at least. He took us on our best run in years with the players he inherited and playing more exciting football than the dross served up by Van Gaal and Mourinho. Yes that's dropped off but it was bound to really.
He deserves a chance and our full support. You never know some of the experts on here could be wrong, it's happened before.

Just my opinion but does anybody else think we are a much better team when Herrera plays. His energy and the way he organizes others is hugely missed. He also gets the best out of Pogba. Our decline coincides with him being injured. i'm not for one second saying this is the only reason but I believe it's a factor in why our midfield has looked non existent in some recent games. Fred has lots of energy too but at the moment hasn't got the quality on the ball that Herrera has, he may come good next season if his confidence increases. Herrera back tomorrow hopefully with Mctominey and Pogba. That's our best 3 and it will make a big difference. Massive game tomorrow. Amazingly despite everything a win gives us a slight chance at top 4.

Don't write us off yet!

I agree. It’s no coincidence that since Herrera has been out the team we have been far worse. Usually sets the standard with his pressing and energy. I would love him ya stay but he is asking for a huge wage. Need to upgrade on him in the summer.

2.) 27 Apr 2019 13:02:07
He’s no Roy Keane but he’s the one player we have who’s not afraid to shout orders and get other players into position. He’s the closest we have to a leader - which is also a concern.

3.) 27 Apr 2019 21:58:11
He is dynamic. only problem what I felt is his fitness and absense of games through injury .

Interesting night ahead.

Its a tough one and I totally get why some wsnt us to lose but as much as I would hate Liverpool to win the league (think I'd have to go into hiding for a while) It's got to be a Utd win tonight I'd prefer. A win gives us 1 last chance of maybe getting 4th. That's best for us.

Also the league isn't over tonight both Liverpool and City could still drop points.

Cheer them on for the win.

1.) 24 Apr 2019 19:36:35
I must be one of the few that can’t stomach the thought of fellow fans actually wanting us to lose a game of football when we are in such a dire situation yet with something to pay for.

They are not real fans they are plastic.

I know all about the Liverpool rivalry. I’m old enough. But I just can’t digest the thought of celebrating a loss. It’s as poisonous as the people employed by the club and it makes us a laughing stock.

Come on United!

2.) 24 Apr 2019 19:44:35
Away and boil your head Wazza. They ain’t plastic, if anything, the illness that is true passion for United is the very thing that makes them want their fiercest rivals not to win the league! It’s completely sick but it’s borne of passion for United. I’ll be cheering us on by the way but fully understand the impulse to want a city win.

3.) 24 Apr 2019 20:39:10
RWWD it just makes you sound like the ABU’s we’ve put up with for years. Double standards, hoping somebody else doesn’t win the league when we are nowhere near it ourselves.

4.) 24 Apr 2019 22:22:02
One thing i can't stand is other fans calling others plastics and the feeling that they have some sort of moral superiority.

Just support the team.

5.) 24 Apr 2019 23:22:44
What in my post do people disagree with? I’m happy to talk about it. The passion for United manifests in not wanting Liverpool to win the league. Call it what you like but it’s not plastic, it’s just misplaced passion. Fairly uncontroversial point I feel.

Whilst it would be nice to get another mid and a winger I think we have enough to be challenging for the league with what we have.
I don't think we need a fullback. Valencia (arguably our best player last year) Darmian Tuanzebe TFM on the right, Shaw (fit soon) Darmian Blind Rojo for the left. Good enough for me with top cover also.

Defensive mid, I agree we may need someone long term for the big prem games and in the big European games but we still hsve Carrick. Most teams we play against a 2 man midfield is enough. Pogba Herrera is more than good enough, will be easier to break teams down if the 3rd man is an attacker not a DM.

A goalscoring winger is probably most needed at the mo. With more than 10 goals in them and somebody fast who can cross the ball. And would be good to have a goalscorer on the bench at times as we badly lacked that last season. Hernandez back would have been nice.

Also if one is leaving I would prefer to keep Jones than Smalling eithout a doubt. On his day is a much better defender than Smalling and would be good back up.

Sure many disagree but that's how I see it.

Excited for the new season.

1.) 27 Jul 2017 13:46:35
I feel we need a cm still if Herrera or pogba are injured then we are relying on Carrick or fellani.

2.) 27 Jul 2017 13:54:43
To challenge we still need a central midfileder to free up pogba ans herrera another winger and at least 1/ fulbacks.

If we go into the season with just the 2 signings we are in for a long season.

We are not equipped to challenge with the team as it is.

3.) 27 Jul 2017 14:16:10
I would be surprised if we don't add another cm.

4.) 27 Jul 2017 14:24:27
tend to agree with that Bolger considering any potential injuries to our starting 11. that may leave us in a very vulnerable position.

5.) 27 Jul 2017 14:48:54
We haven't the best luck when it comes to injures.

Hopefully Shaw can stay fit and knuckle down and get the lb slot.

We need fb to compete with Valencia.

Another cm.

A winger.

And maybe another striker. Depending where he sees martial and Rashford being played.

6.) 27 Jul 2017 16:10:06
I think this season just needs to get started1.

Would just like to say well done Wayne Rooney on an amazing achievment. I can understand opposition fans slating him as he plays for us and has often dissapointed at international tournaments (along with every other England player by the way) . But I think he should get more respect from our own supporters.
People being negative about him because he isn't Ronaldo/ Messi level. Who is?
One thing I will say is as good as Ronaldo is and has been it was always about him. Himself 1st, team 2nd. Rooney is and has always been a team player 1st. Could have had so many more goals if he'd shot whenever he got the opportunity instead of putting it on a plate for a team mate. Got to respect him for that. I know I do.
Well done Wayne

1.) 24 Jan 2017 04:36:10
Got to love the way he scores a Fergie time belter to take the record and rather than over celebrating tries to get the ball back in play in case we can go on and win the game.

He may be fading in his later years but that drive, passion and sense of leadership of his team is something a lot of young prima donna players (Memphis) could take on board I reckon.

Football is not just about pace Shan. Mata is class in every way and a valuable member of our squad.

Blind rarely let's us down. What he lacks in pace he makes up in positioning and reading of the game. Also tidy on the ball.
A very good back up and utility player for me.
Doesn't deserve th stick.

Good point. Players with hunger and a point to prove are what's badly needed. Overpriced, overpaid superstars are not working out we should steer clear.

Agree totally on Herrera, I had just posted something similar.
He is the only one in our team with any leadership qualities. That and his energy and quality on the ball (not often he gives it away) have been badly missed.
I hope he stays, but that said if he is after ridiculous wages like is being reported then can see why they don't want to give him a new contract. Allthough in all fairness can see why he thinks Sanchez shouldn't be on more money.

I would offer him more money (maybe not as much as he's asked for), 3 or 4 year contract and give him the captaincy. He's the best option we have at the moment for captain.
That would make him stay I'm sure, he shows passion for the club and always 100% effort, not many others you can say that about at the moment.

I'm not bothered what ed002 says. I think he could be great for us. He gets the club and when he's injected this squad with some of his signings and got rid of 5 or 6 we don't need for various reasons then it will be a different story.
It's not all doom and gloom.
Give him a chance, easiest thing in the world to write him off allready.

Agree 666. There is a massive debate whether he should get it or not. But a decision doesn't need to be made until the end of the season.
By that time we will know more about him as a manager. After the next month we'll know more.
I'm just enjoying him being here for now whatever happens. He is like a breath of fresh air after Mourinho and I love everything about him. He says all the right things, has the players and supporters smiling and enjoying their football again. He's humble and is a club legend no mater what happens.
The pressure hasn't been on him or the players yet though since he came in. He is is in a sort of no lose situation whatever happens. That said if we carry on like this until the end of the season, make top 4 and go far in the cups it would be a difficult decision to get rid of him.
I still think Poch is probably the man to take us forward. I'm not getting too carried away at the moment but am enjoying the ride and would love nothing more than us going on to win things with Ole at the helm.

I think 1 on 1 he's hard to beat, not many get past him. And the fact he can play either side full back or centre half I'd keep him as backup. But I'd keep Jones too and not many agree with that so what do I know :-)
