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.


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?


{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.}



21 Mar 2018 20:06:59
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.


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.


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.



14 Jul 2017 19:11:12
Wesley Sneijder's been released by Galatasaray. Let the rumours commence.


1.) 14 Jul 2017 20:44:02
Exactly the type of player we need.

Does anyone know if Telles has an injury?
Looks like him and Lindelof aren't in the squad for tonight.
I thought he slotted into the team very nicely against PSG.


1.) 28 Oct 2020 15:37:24
He must have.

2.) 28 Oct 2020 15:39:19
Not sure about telles. Just out of curiosity does anyone have any thoughts on the dvb situation 😂😂😂.

3.) 28 Oct 2020 15:58:45
😂😂😂 leahy.

4.) 28 Oct 2020 16:18:33
If that's the case its a chance to see axel and maguire as a pair.

5.) 28 Oct 2020 16:39:58
Looking forward to seeing Julian Nagelsmann's team playing at Old Trafford. Whichever "big" team he eventually ends up at will have one heck of a coach.

6.) 28 Oct 2020 18:33:24
Telles settling in isn't he trying to adapt to a position he's played all his career and bought because we liked what we saw of him in said position, mountain and molehill isn't it 🤪.

7.) 28 Oct 2020 18:59:49
Heard Shaw felt threatened so he ate him.



17 Oct 2020 19:16:38
Strange team selection. Van de Beek must be scratching his head.


1.) 17 Oct 2020 19:25:08
So am I scratching my head.

2.) 17 Oct 2020 19:28:48
I don't get it. If you are dropping Pogba play vdb with Bruno.
Just another case of puzzling decisions for me.

3.) 17 Oct 2020 19:30:37
Its the team selection of someone who has an eye on the game on Tuesday.

4.) 18 Oct 2020 01:25:53
And turned out to be correct.

5.) 18 Oct 2020 08:57:35

The original team provided a poor showing, so it wasn’t right to begin with, it wasn’t until the 2 subs Pogba and DvB came on that we showed improvement.

6.) 18 Oct 2020 11:05:25
No it wasn't GDS, pure muck until VDB was on. He got the selection wrong again. Hopefully he is braver next time.



16 Oct 2020 13:39:58
Is Ole getting his excuses out to the media regarding Maguire. He said Maguire picked up a knock before his red card. I can see him being dropped for the Newcastle game with media being told he's injured.

The worrying thing about the start to our season is the lack of morale, particularly in our CB's. Lindelof and Maguire have had stinkers.


1.) 16 Oct 2020 13:53:35
It may be easier to say he is injured if that suits. No need to humiliate more than he has humiliated himself over time past couple of months.
Its only as big a deal as people make it.

2.) 16 Oct 2020 14:44:14
His form is entirely down to his head not being in the right place. None of us know what actually happened in Greece or what Harry went through and still seems to be struggling with.

Ultimately I think he needs to be taken out of the team for his own good. If that means the club "make up" an injury so he can save face then so be it.

Harry Maguire might not be the best defender to ever pull on a United shirt, but he is our player and we need to rally around him. If that means nodding and agreeing that he's injured and to just move on then fine by me.

3.) 16 Oct 2020 14:44:16
McTominay in a back 3 won't be a bad shout.

4.) 16 Oct 2020 14:52:27
Agreed Ken, it’s a good shout from Ole if he does drop him and spin it that he’s got a knock. Give him a week out the spotlight to get himself straight.

5.) 16 Oct 2020 15:19:33
If Bailly and Maguire are out then I could see TFM Lindelof and Shaw being our back three. All good on the ball, TFM and Shaw are quick and capable of covering wide. Although I would be concerned with aerial balls.

6.) 16 Oct 2020 15:27:59
To be fair he was clearly injured before he got sent off, whether that’s a convenient reason or not he was hobbling around and was probably the reason for the heavy touch.

7.) 16 Oct 2020 16:03:34
McTominay at the back is a bad idea, he has been really poor for Scotland. Think McGuire having “a knock” is the best for him just now. Genuinely don’t think he has proved to be better than Jones and definitely not better than smalling could have been. Don’t know why we aren’t signing a proven centre half from the domestic scene to see us through.

8.) 16 Oct 2020 20:24:11
rohan did you watch mctom play for scotland at the back had a nightmare game.

9.) 16 Oct 2020 21:32:37
Ole just needs to drop him and be man. Hate being negative about a club legend but just have a set Ole.

10.) 16 Oct 2020 22:32:21
Bailly and Rojo anyone? Worked well once.

11.) 17 Oct 2020 14:08:55
Are Rojo Nd bailly fit at the same time? Oh my, that is like a solar eclipse. only happens every 7 years. Better play them.



16 Aug 2020 19:54:21
Let's hope Pogba turns up tonight. Rashford is due a goal too. I think Fred is playing to mark and press Banega. He controlled the game against Wolves.




19 Mar 2020 20:33:28
I've just donated to the charity Marcus Rashford is working with to ensure kids who rely on the free meals at school are still getting them in during these closures.
I really admire his charity work. It's a great cause people. It was my first thought when I heard of the school closures. For some little ones, school is there safe haven, the place they get fed and looked after. I know there are other people in need of help during these tough times but I think this is a great cause.

Class, well done mate.

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.

Pretty much yeah.
It seems like Neymar does what he wants there and the owners indulge it.
I can see Pogba being the extra bit of quality they need to win the CL though.

Looks like you got that bang on Amz.
I would’ve liked to see us stick with 3 at the back. Anyone know what has happened with Telles?

17 Oct 2020 22:08:12
Really enjoyed that Tim. Mata is class, can still do a job for us this season. McTominay looked solid, VDB and Pogba looked like they could link well in midfield.
With McTominay dripping back into a 3 and Telles coming into the team, we could have our system for the PSG game.
Cavani would’ve had a couple tonight if he were up top, Rashford still has a lot of work to do on decision making and finishing.
Fair play Maguire too, could’ve had a couple tonight. He looked like he pulled up towards the end though.

I seem to remember a lot on here turning their noses up at James Rodriguez when we were linked with him. Turns out he isn’t a washed up has-been.
Let’s see how this Cavani move goes before we all label him Sanchez II.
Our only option up top, aside from Martial, Greenwood and Rashford is Ighalo, having Cavani in the squad strengthens our options.

Were we even interested in him? Seems like he’s been offered to clubs rather than actually identified and scouted.
I don’t want to sound like a fan who rubbishs a player because he signs for another club but it seems like he was offered, we listened to Reals offer, didn’t like it and walked away. Spurs have agreed the buy back clause so he goes there, simple.
