Rumours of Mbappé being a target next summer.
While I don't believe a word of it and it's just clickbait headlines, it is crazy to think he could be available on a free next summer along with Haaland being available for a reduced fee.
It seemed at the time that Barca's and PSGs big spending on the likes of Neymar, Coutinho and Dembélé would become the norm. We could now be seeing some of the biggest names moving around for no fees and massive wages. Crazy really.

Don’t forget Pogba, who’ll also probably be leaving for nothing.


2.) 20 Aug 2021 15:18:34
That’s what I was getting at. Ronaldo, Pogba and Mbappé all possibly leaving on frees. With Messi just gone on a free.

{Ed014's Note - I can see that other legend Phil Jones joining them on a free!


3.) 20 Aug 2021 16:19:46
ED014,

The missing piece to the jigsaw.

{Ed014's Note - definitely 👍🏼🤣


4.) 21 Aug 2021 05:23:24
Mbappe on a free is ridiculous mind you I've always been surprised that more players don't do it.


5.) 21 Aug 2021 07:13:09
Isn't Mbappe under the age of 24 and therefore the club will be owed a fee for him or something along those lines. I'd imagine that fee would be quite high, along with his wages and signing on fee and agents fees.


6.) 21 Aug 2021 09:07:38
Mad Hatter, I think that sort of fee is only for clubs who have trained the player through their academy. With Mbappe being a graduate of AS Monaco's youth system I don't think PSG would be entitled to any fees if he was to leave on a free.

{Ed002's Note - No.}


7.) 21 Aug 2021 09:26:57
So many other names as well who I think will be out of contract next year: Dybala, Fati, Dembele, Pedri, Camavinga, Kessie, Pelligrini, Zakaria, Brozovic, Ginter, Romagnoli, Milenkovic, Carvajal, Onana. all good players.

Director of football rumours starting to surface again.
Who should the board be targeting? Van der Sar would be a good option or move Ole upstairs and get Poch in to mamage.

2toms

1.) 23 Jul 2020 20:36:21
Why move ole into another position he is even less experienced in?

Get an actual director of football. I've always thought Jordi Cruyff could be a good choice knows the club and seems to have good knowledge of clubs around the world.


2.) 24 Jul 2020 09:29:22
It really depends on what the club want from the role. I don't think hiring someone who hasn't done the role or similar is a good idea.

Jordi Cryuff would be good if they want someone who knows the club. Berta, Campos or Rangnick would be good options.

{Ed002's Note - Knowing where the bathrooms are is not the way to decide on a senior role.}


3.) 24 Jul 2020 10:48:20
Jordi was just someone I'd seen had done the job at other clubs and been a manager as well as knowing our club plus I'd imagine he had good relationships with lost of clubs so i thought be may be a decent option. but I don't know enough about the job or the person so it is just an opinion ed would know more about both so I'd go with what he says.

{Ed002's Note - The problem will be the remit and the authority.}


4.) 24 Jul 2020 11:26:31
Ed002 😂😂😂.


5.) 24 Jul 2020 11:28:44
Like giving a joiner a spade ed? He'll try but I doubt your get a good chair.


6.) 24 Jul 2020 11:56:22
Ed002, that depends on the remit of the senior role though surely?

If United want someone who can direct real change and get the club back on the right footing then we need the best person for the job.

However, if the club wants some kind of ceremonial role that looks like someone is doing something but in reality they aren't making a gnats arse of difference then maybe signing someone the fans will have some sort of connection with would better suit the club's criteria.

From what you've said the position doesn't seem to carry much weight and seems poorly thought out, which is why they are struggling to find someone serious to fill it.

{Ed002's Note - That is what I just said.}


7.) 24 Jul 2020 13:07:57
or just keep the current manager as he isn't doing that bad of a job.


 

 

05 Jul 2019 21:21:37
There's a few reports doing the rounds regarding Lazio official in London to discuss Milinkovic-Savic.
Do any of the Ed's know if there's any truth to this?

2toms

{Ed002's Note - Tare has been in another city discussing the player with another club - I am not aware of him being in London to talk with MU.}


1.) 05 Jul 2019 22:05:43
Thanks Ed002. Would that other city be Paris?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

Here's a question. If, and it's a very big if, Mourinho was to leave the club. Would anyone think of Zidane as the next coach of our team?
I take all the nonsense in the media with a pinch of salt when it comes to Pogba and Shaw falling out daily with Mourinho, but there is definitely something amiss at the moment. Hopefully it's Jose's tough love and the players pull their socks up and get on with the remainder of the season.

I do feel though that the board and senior figures will soon get tired of the Mourinho circus if results don't change.
That's where Zidane comes into it. There's a massive possibility he will lose his job at Real in the summer which is a shame as he's won the CL twice in his short managerial career. The most obvious option would be for him to join PSG but I would certainly take a gamble on him IF Jose were to go and Zidane became available.

2toms

1.) 21 Mar 2018 20:53:08
Zidane and scholes 👍👍👍 🤞👌👌👌.


2.) 21 Mar 2018 22:08:12
I'd really like this option. There are several French speaking players in the squad and I'm sure he'll quick be an inspiration to them. He seems like a decent enough guy too from the interviews I've seen.


3.) 21 Mar 2018 22:42:31
At least Zidane won't be afraid to 'butt heads' with the big boys in the team. A few ego's need reining in imo.


4.) 22 Mar 2018 12:34:04
Love Zidane as a player and would have been an honour to have him playing for united. But I’m not too sure about his managerial capabilities. I think his biggest strength actually appears to be man management of egos in that real squad, and keeping the players happy. He has a fantastic squad at his disposal. However, he does seem to know how to get the best out of the players so that is a positive. I have to disagree there beast on Zidane reining in egos. This is exactly what Jose is doing now and he is being criticised so what makes Zidane doing it any different? I’m not advocating what Jose does as I do not believe he is right for us. But isn’t it a bit ridiculous to want Zidane to butt head
s with the egos in the squad when Jose is doing the same but yet criticised for it?


5.) 22 Mar 2018 16:53:19
Park - it was a poor joke based on what was one of the most remarkable things witnessed during a game. World Cup Final 2006, Zidane 'Head Butting' Materazzi in the chest.


6.) 22 Mar 2018 17:30:34
Haha my mistake beastie didn’t notice that one.


 

 

30 Jan 2018 21:01:30
Daley Blind could be off to Roma. Class act if you ask me, just isn't quite at the level needed at United. He's the one Van Gaal signing I wanted to see workout.

2toms

1.) 30 Jan 2018 22:02:21
I like Blind excellent passer and can play in a variety of positions. Clever tactically too just his lack of pace that let's him down. Be sad to see him go.


2.) 30 Jan 2018 22:09:01
Sorry but I disagree, incredibly mediocre who just isn’t cut out for this league.


3.) 30 Jan 2018 22:23:58
Good pro always gives 100% will do well elsewhere and I'm not sure it's true as we don't have a replacement but regardless he is not a ideal fit for us or the epl in general due to his lack of pace.


4.) 31 Jan 2018 06:35:48
Anyone thinks Blind can replace Carrick? Appreciate opinions. Thanks 🙏.


5.) 31 Jan 2018 07:14:01
Blind has very good passing ability and seems to have a very good understanding of the game. However, I don't think he could replace Carrick.

Physically, Blind would struggle against teams that press high as he isn't quick enough not does he have the strength to hold people off. Carrick isn't the quickest but because of his awareness and ability to shield the ball is an excellent passing central midfielder.

If we have a good offer for Blind I'd say take it. We still have 5 CB's if he leaves and Shaw, Young, Darmian (doesn't look like he is leaving this window) and Rojo can all play left back. Next season we should have TFM back and he can fill a utility role in the squad.


6.) 31 Jan 2018 08:25:09
Thanks RJ for opinion. So if Blind can’t replace Carrick who then can we buy or any younger players?
Feel free to comment anyone. Thanks.


7.) 31 Jan 2018 10:47:57
Mediocre player. certainly not good enough for that central midfield area if we have aspirations of winning the Premiership and the champions League. I would be going for the Lazio midfielder Savic.


8.) 31 Jan 2018 12:51:55
Only a few players can replace Carrick 666. I think Weigl is perfect and would love us to sign him. Otherwise you have Jorginho and of course Kroos. Tielemens is a left field option always been impressed with him and also Dendoncker. I would prefer we went for an engine in midfield as I think it would compliment pogba and matic better. A Vidal/ Kante would be perfect. Or the other option is go for more creativity like city do with De Bruyne and silva. Milinkovic Savic or Thiago alacantara would be perfect. I think Milinkovic Savic is the one we must move heaven and earth for. Interesting to see what we do.

I've seen and heard a few United fans bemoaning Ronaldo because he isn't working harder for the team or tracking back.
*#*# right off!
We currently have one of the greatest players to grace to pitch, in our team. He scores goals and wins matches. He inspires with his desire to win, his unreal work ethic and athleticism.
We have Ole's poxy double pivot who should be mopping up in midfield and moving the ball forward. We have World Cup winning Pogba, the biggest assist/ goal contributing midfielder in the past 3 years in Bruno.
We do not want Ronaldo tracking back! Cavani did it Wednesday night and got a massive roar at OT but he did so after 10 mins of football this season. Let's appreciate what we currently have and enjoy them!

2toms

1.) 01 Oct 2021 22:43:14
Agree, agree, then agree some more.


2.) 02 Oct 2021 07:17:38
And it's not like he never tracks back. He does on occasion, especially when Ronaldo loses the ball. He tries to go back and win it again.


3.) 02 Oct 2021 09:15:17
Totally disagree 2Toms. Why shouldn't Ronaldo trackback? Its a team sport and all the best teams defend from the front.

If Ronaldo can't track back then we have to assume he's past it.

Poor signing IMO.


4.) 02 Oct 2021 09:16:42
He is 36, he was bought to score goals. So far he has done that. He can't always expect him to track back, particularly at his age. He will more than likely be managing his energy levels.


5.) 02 Oct 2021 09:10:38
Anybody who thinks otherwise knows little about football.


6.) 02 Oct 2021 10:35:27
MancMan, can you even blame Ronaldo?

Everyone knew the type of player we are going to get in Ronaldo and why we got him back to the club.

We can all appreciate Cavani for what he does but there comes a point where the player needs to manage himself better with age and needs to adapt his game to still be able to play at the top.

Ronaldo has adapted a lot and his role has significantly changed over the years in order to efficiently utilize his goal scoring abilities.

If you feel he is a poor signing then you first need to question the club and the manager on why they signed him.


7.) 02 Oct 2021 12:21:14
You’ll be the first to moan at Fred mctominay maguire etc when their having to pass sideways or back, reason being Ronaldo does not do enough off the ball, Wednesday night he literally didn’t run . Just remember that when your giving the usual suspects their weekly dose of abuse.


8.) 02 Oct 2021 14:39:53
Chris1, forget those 3 you mentioned almost the entire team pass sideways or back most times.

It's OleBall you know ?.


 

 

25 Sep 2021 19:48:45
It's all probably been said in other posts, but Ole has gone as far as he can go with this team. He's brought some major positives to the squad in his 3 years but he is so far out of his depth during matches it unreal.
We will not compete or win anything with him in charge.
The problem is, who would we replace him with?

2toms

1.) 25 Sep 2021 20:11:14
Anyone 2 toms because it would be very difficult for anyone to be any worse then what’s being served up at moment with the tools he as at his disposal, ok we got some poor players but we got some very good ones too, and the very least we should look a bit exciting, just watch other top teams and how quick they get forward and excite the crowd then watch us and think bloody hell how can it be this slow and this boring and why on earth does every player need a extra touch or two or prefer to turn back then go forward, that’s down to the coaching nothing more nothing less, I believe any new manager would get a better tune out of this bunch then Ole and his gang are doing, they are all out of there depth I’m afraid and everyone of them needs to go.


2.) 25 Sep 2021 20:21:12
Graham Potter.


3.) 25 Sep 2021 20:39:31
Brian Potter wouldn’t be any worse.

{Ed014's Note - is that his brother?


4.) 25 Sep 2021 20:42:50
Although Potter plays some good football, it’s a step and half to move to very big clubs and I think he would be swallowed up, be too early for him, it happens to many players let alone managers, I really do think we have a couple now that, that’s happening too, Sancho being one of them, yes he got ability yes he played well in German league, but always had a suspect temperament ask anyone who actually knows him! But I digress the question is who to replace
Conte will win things and stay 2-3 years max brand of football not that great but neither is now and we don’t win things
Zidane will control Ego’s and play attractive football and will certainly win more then Ole if he stayed 4 years
Rodger’s again I think he is at his level with an under dog
Ajax boss technically excellent with good brand of football but for the Premier league I don’t think so, same as VDB is not for premier league.
All others in jobs at moment and won’t be leaving, Poch will be available very soon, but please not him, not one to handle the big ego’s as will be seen very shortly.


5.) 25 Sep 2021 20:43:58
Potter or Conte.


6.) 25 Sep 2021 20:44:51
Brian Potter even?


7.) 25 Sep 2021 20:48:59
Conte.
He will make a team out of us, he might fight and leave in 1-2 seasons, but he's actually a manager who knows how to manage a football team and well.
The lazy players like martial won't get a look in, we will defensively solid, the team will work hard and we will play with width.


8.) 25 Sep 2021 20:53:49
I’m just done with this current set up. Ole, his coaching staff and their nothing tactics. The signings have been pretty bang on but the progress on the pitch is non existent.


9.) 25 Sep 2021 21:32:53
Phoenix Nights Brian Potter…showing my age, google him kids.


10.) 26 Sep 2021 00:41:28
Potter for me also, Rodgers would be my other choice.


 

 

31 Aug 2021 20:53:39
Rumours are that Ole blocked a late Everton move for VDB.
I'm really struggling to understand the whole situation around VDB if I'm honest. He can't get minutes on the pitch ahead of a really poor Fred and an aging Matic. What has Ole got planned for the lad?

2toms

1.) 31 Aug 2021 21:01:33
Warmups near the old Trafford crowd.


2.) 31 Aug 2021 21:05:28
Hopefully we'll either get a DM last minute today, or in January, and Ole is holding on to Donny to play alongside them.

Of course this is Utd, so it's just as likely someone thinks he has injury potential and could be a long term replacement for Jones in keeping the physios' skills sharp.


3.) 31 Aug 2021 23:02:24
I think Ole may be planning a change in formation. We have too many awesome attacking players now to play his current system.


4.) 31 Aug 2021 23:30:24
2-1-3-4 should do it!


5.) 01 Sep 2021 03:48:10
Thorne, I hope you are kidding.

There was always a argument that Pogba needs a DM to get the best out of him and now VDB also needs one?

Eric79, the only formation Ole would probably change is to play 3 in the middle to protect Ronaldo and Pogba if they start together.

{Ed077's Note - Pogba is never going to work as a CM for us IMO, even if we got a DM.


6.) 01 Sep 2021 04:17:42
Ed077, I have to agree. He simply lacks the desire and discipline to play that position.

{Ed077's Note - I am not sure whether it's is desire or whatever but I don't think Pogba will ever work in a 2 man midfield for us on a consistent basis.


7.) 01 Sep 2021 07:11:45
ED077,

Pogba will soon get a new long term deal, then pushed back deepening midfield when Rashford returns. Quite possibly alongside Fred.

{Ed077's Note - we will know in the not too distant future I guess

Just out of curiosity, which other team or teams either from lower leagues or from abroad, do posters have a soft spot for?

Watching Football Italia in the 90's gave me a soft spot for Juventus, players like Del Piero, Davids, Zizou and Conte, then Nedved, Trezequet, Buffon, Thuram, Salas, Camoranesi, Zambrotta and Chiellini.

I also have a soft spot for Ajax, that is mostly due to their faith in youth and making great players rather than buying them.


8.) 05 Aug 2021 20:18:36
For me abroad is Ajax as them winning the CL in the 90s is one of my first football memories and I find their style of football to be the best to watch. Been a few times tonwatxh them and love the atmosphere in the stadium too.

Lower league is my local team Cambridge United. Not the best by a long shot but evening games with mates are a good crack.

Salford city for me. Being a Salfordian I’ve been to watch them on many occasions growing up. I still keep a close eye on them but tbh I preferred it a few years ago before the takeover and in the first couple of seasons post take over but now (for me) it’s lost the feeling it used to have.


13.) 05 Aug 2021 21:35:44

Not ‘lower league’ but West Ham. Was at boarding school (in England) with a guy that was utterly desperate to play for WHU. Our parents were forces and abroad so half term him and I were in a very small minority that were ‘in dorm’. I would be in goal as he fired shot after shot at me shouting “Hurst” blah blah. We had a ‘special’ relationship for a short juvenile period in our lives…. life moves on.

Surely just because of batistuta? He was class i always look back at older football when we were treated to some great players that were never labelled world class. Nowadays u only have to score a goal in a important game and you world class!


17.) 05 Aug 2021 22:53:38
Like others, I have a soft spot for Parma from watching Football Italia and playing them a lot in football management games over the years. I have a lot of respect for Ajax and Bayern too, just well ran clubs who play good football.

As a 21 year old boarding school boyo, I can confirm Ed002 is very right about the "special relationships" lol. Supporting Man Utd was probably the reason why I never had traumatic experiences. When I was 11, I shared a dorm with a boy from Manchester who reminds me a lot of Brandon Williams. Skinny but absolutely hard as nails, could fight people twice his size. Saved me from being bullied by a Newcastle supporter by regularly putting him in his place. The beatings helped straighten the kid out and now we're best mates. Can't thank him enough for having my back. Dortmund were my second team for a while, as under Klopp I thought they played the most beautiful football in the world. I always wanted Klopp to be Ferguson's replacement.

Back in the channel 4 football Italia days when the Milan teams were dominating Serie A in the early 90s my favourite team was Juve because they had Baggio, and Vialli. I loved watching Baggio.
Regarding English teams i have always had a soft spot for Aston Villa.

Celtic has always been a big thing in our house. Always wanted to go Celtic v Rangers match. Not done it yet.

That’s what I was getting at. Ronaldo, Pogba and Mbappé all possibly leaving on frees. With Messi just gone on a free.

{Ed014's Note - I can see that other legend Phil Jones joining them on a free!

A midfield of Fernandes, Pogba (for a season) and Saul would be very exciting.

Why’s it laughable Singh?
Both players have bags of talent but have flattered to deceive.
What has Ozil achieved? 3 FA cups? La Liga?
Pogba has a few Scudetto’s and a Europa League medal.
This wasn’t my point though. I used Ozil as an example of another player who has the talent but won’t really be remembered for being a great player.

Pogba is similar to Mesut Ozil for me. Ridiculous amount of talent but lacking the desire to be the best.
Ironically, they are both World Cup winners. I honestly think the problem is players now are so rich that some just lose focus on football.
These guys have hit the very pinnacle of football and have money we could only dream of.
Both seem like decent enough guys who could’ve been up there with the best of their generation but neither will really be remembered as such.

I said the same to my brother during the match on Wednesday Ken. If anything, just to mess with the opposition. No one would expect an old school 4-4-2 with Ronaldo and Cavani up top.

I’m just done with this current set up. Ole, his coaching staff and their nothing tactics. The signings have been pretty bang on but the progress on the pitch is non existent.

Shappy, what a ridiculous thing to say.
As a football fan, you want to see your team winning. The goading and changing is part and parcel of wanting your team to win!
Most football fans wouldn’t give a fiddlers who pulls on the shirt if they were winning trophies.
We, as United fans had a glorious run with young local lads at the heart of the team. That won’t happen again In the near future with the money and foreign investment in the PL.

I took my nephew to the derby last year which was a Sunday afternoon kickoff. The evening before, we took a wander around OT just to show him the ground and the players were all getting on the bus behind OT to travel to the Lowry. He managed to get pics and autographs with the players. I think it was around 19:00-19:30.

It was hardly shambolic mate.
I do agree about Fred though. When he’s bad, he’s really bad! At his best, he’s just an average squad player.
We’re screaming out for a decent DM.
