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.

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.

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.



22 Aug 2015 18:08:48
3 clean sheets in the league which is a possitive, but still not enough chances created. It's not all down to Rooney, I've not seen him miss many and when he does score he will go on a run like allways.
We were unlucky not to win today but wish we had been a bit more possitive with our subs. When Schweinsteiger came off why not Herrera on. We still had morgan to protect back 4.
Herrera should b starting for Janusaj. And we obviously need more options up front.


1.) 22 Aug 2015 18:20:36
It is harsh to solely blame Rooney, but it was the same last season with RVP & Falcao. A striker does need to create chances out of nothing in our team and all of these strikers struggle to create for themselves.

A few of us have said it must be horrible to be a striker for Utd at the moment. The tactics are mainly to blame, but Rooney is not putting himself in the right places to get chances or breaks of the ball, etc, he has lost that knack as he has lost that yard. He is too easy to mark and whilst Ibra isn't much quicker, he is more intelligent, and more of a presence. I honestly think Vardy would do better up front for us than Rooney, we either need a Zlatan or a workhorse that is a nuisance (Suarez/Aguero would be the best).

2.) 22 Aug 2015 18:45:15
Actually I think we looked like Barcelona but Barca prior to Neymar and Suarez arriving and in a game when Messi wasn't playing, ineffectual. Barca had a structure yet struggled when playing to a formula, a pattern. They required the game changer that was Messi. It was how we looked today, knew the structure but waiting for someone to do something special

3.) 22 Aug 2015 20:02:42
Beast, I both agree and disagree. Rooney is pretty immobile so to say it must be difficult to be a striker is misleading; a striker who makes good intelligent runs will,get service. Too often the midfield were looking to play balls but had nobody to play to.

4.) 22 Aug 2015 20:04:18
He isn't on form that is obvious, but he does need more support and pace around him. I'm not going to write him off like most have but agree we do need other options.



07 Aug 2015 18:11:40
Why is Darmian not no.2 and shaw no. 3?
I'd have given Wilson 9 unless we got someone coming in?


1.) 07 Aug 2015 19:00:38
Just in case people are confused numbers aren't assigned to positions they are assigned to players. Players can choose to wear whichever number they lIke as long as nobody else is wearing it.

2.) 07 Aug 2015 19:35:09
Darmian had the same number at torino and apparently he's very superstitious

Luke Shaw chose 23 because he said he's comfortable with that no. and he also had that at saints

Certain players have favourite numbers and if possible will always choose their preferred no.

3.) 07 Aug 2015 20:17:36
Wilson 9? Why would you want him to be given no. 9? He's achieved nothing so far.

4.) 08 Aug 2015 03:13:46
Wilson got 19



13 Jul 2015 21:02:15
Well at last we finally have a midfield to compete for major trophies. Exciting times. And for the Van Gaal knockers, Schweinsteiger probably wouldn't have signed but for him.
Just a top cb (Otamendi) and another striker then wow what a team. Think Van Gaal has quickly realised what we needed and our team and squad is getting better and better. Can't wait for the seaaon to start!


1.) 13 Jul 2015 22:48:28
What's all this about Van Gaal's Knockers? We all wind up with man boobs mate - it's a bit harsh he's in his 60's and has just pulled off 4 top signings!

2.) 14 Jul 2015 01:07:06
well in bastis interview when asked was lvh a big influence in his move. he said no, it was mainly the thought of playing for utd

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.

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 :-)

Darmian is a good defender. I would definitely keep him for his versatility.


{Ed025's Note - i think hes bloody awful will..

Huddersfield were unlucky. Hit the post, goal disallowed which came off lallana and could easily have had a penalty.
I would say it was due to Huddersfield not having enough in the final third and not getting any luck or decisions as to why Liverpool won.

Good point Jred. The players shouldn't criticise or even hint at it against the manager, but he continually has a go at the players publicly so how can he complain. Stems from the manager IMO.
