I’ve loved reading the posts this week and for what it’s worth, here’s my view.

Maguire is not necessarily the greatest defender but he seems like a big character and as has been said he is better than what we have. The price is irrelevant to me, fees are soon forgotten (unlike wages) . I think he will settle quickly and make a difference.

AWB looks a quality buy in a position where we have struggled so I’m confident that will look a steal as the season progresses.

James has huge potential, looking forward to seeing how he develops.

Dybala I don’t want. No idea where it came from and we really shouldn’t be entertaining it. Fancy name, not pulled up any trees for a couple of years, really don’t see where he fits in.

Fernandes look quality and would be a good signing and if we are interested then I have no idea why it is taking so long.

We need to ship Pogba out as quickly as possible, assuming anyone has made any sort of sensible offer. I don’t buy the line that he’s really popular. If he isn’t committed to the cause then he needs to leave.

Sanchez also needs to go. I’d even let him go on a free or nominal fee as it would free up at least £15M because of his ridiculous contract.

Lukaku also needs to go and again I’d take the best offer that is on the table. We may lose on the fees but the benefit to team spirit and morale of shipping out players who don’t want to be her is immense. There’s a bunch of other players we need to move on and again we should make it attractive to potential buyers. Darmian and Rojo for starters.

Imagine those 5 gone, 4 new signings (I’m assuming a CM is coming), and a few from the youth promoted. The feel and mood will be lifted and with the extra fitness and energy, with everyone committed and pulling in the same direction, who knows where we will get to.

I fear there is not enough time left to move players on but for me that is just as important on bringing new ones in.


1.) 03 Aug 2019 14:37:38
It would be foolish to let pogba leave so late in the window, no chance we have enough time to obtain a replacement.

Saul would fit the bill, but that would be a complicated deal and there are questions marks over whether he would even want to come.

Are SMS or fernandes as good as pogba? if looked at objectively you would say they were not on his level.

Dybala is probably the clearest route to getting rid of lukaku as inter milan are unable to source the funds to do a deal, so this swap deal is a pretty good compromise to get rid of a player who doesn't fit oles style and bring in a player who does.

25, 5 year contract means we have plenty of scope to get a resale value when he inevitably pines for a move to madrid or Barcelona like pogba. Could be a shrewd bit of business by the club.

2.) 03 Aug 2019 14:49:29
DSG, if you put my reservations aside, Ed002 has said Dybala doesn’t want to come. If he’s having to be convinced then we shouldn’t do it,

3.) 03 Aug 2019 15:15:18
Tony do you honestly expect Dybala to happily want to leave a team with Ronaldo and several stars which is guaranteed at least a major trophy and also UCL football every season and come over to us because we are Manchester United?

That ship has sailed!

No matter how attractive a team is, it still has to make an effort to appeal to a prospective player.

4.) 03 Aug 2019 15:18:42
I honestly think you will be surprised how many player would not want to join us this summer. No champions league is a big loss especially in a window where bayern, real, Barcelona and juve are all making big deals.

Look at sancho, he realised that coming to united this window would be not be ideal for his development when we are undergoing significant changes and his development was much better suited staying at dortmund.

Does that mean we shouldn't go in for him next summer when we will still need to convince him we are the right club with the right stability for him to continue his development?

Dybala is an oppurtune signing granted but if he does join it won't be against his will, quite a few player over the year have needed to be convinced/ persuaded to join clubs.

5.) 03 Aug 2019 15:23:18
I really don't get why people would wants Pogba to stay. Old may say all the right things about Pogba having a great attitude blah blah blah, but the player clearly wants out.
If we keep hold of him against his wishes we will just have the same circus every transfer window. It's unsettling for everyone, including Old, despite what he may say in public.

Pogba is obviously talented and is a match winner on his day. I understand that, but keeping an unhappy player is counter productive.

On the flip side, we shouldn't be forced to sell him on the cheap. But over inflating his price so that he is effectively priced out of a more is daft in my opinion.

Despite the fact that some fans 'hero worship' some players, Pogba is not worthy of that label. Talent is nothing without application, effort and desire and Mr Pogba is severely lacking in the later.

6.) 03 Aug 2019 15:35:43
Until last week his name hadn’t come up, nobody on here had suggested we try and buy him or he would add anything to our team. Now suddenly many are drooling over him and I don’t get it. We should have learned from Di Maria. He doesn’t want to come, allegedly he wants £350K a week, allegedly his agent wants £13M, it’s possibly taken our focus from Fernandes. The only positive I can see is we lose Lukaku, that’s about it.

I don’t really buy the Champions League argument. Actually I do buy it and it hacks me off. There’s only a few teams that will win it, and there seems to be a snobbishness that has materialised with players ‘not wanting to take a step down’. I’m not sure how we’ve allowed it to become so important, for me the domestic title is still the biggest trophy by far.

7.) 03 Aug 2019 15:37:47
Of course he needs convincing AJH. He is not a fan like is. He is at a top club where his life family and friends are and you think a good pitch and lots of reassurances are not required.
You don't seem to be the sort of chap to make knee jerk life changing decisions without due consultation and thought process and advice. Do you think dybala should?

8.) 03 Aug 2019 15:56:18
Is aguero not a good example why is it always di Maria.
Do people think aguero was a life long city fan desperate to move to a team that had won nothing for years?
Or did him and his agent need a bit of convincing and a bucket of cash .

I'm not saying we should or shouldn't sign him but there's a bit of a line in the sand starting with one or 2 players,

9.) 03 Aug 2019 16:02:27
Of course he's reluctant. We're not exactly known for stability are we. He enjoys life in Italy and is reluctant to leave. But Juve are forcing him out.

10.) 03 Aug 2019 16:03:54
Madrid have been making sensible offers for Pogba throughout this window.

UTD think they can get more with very little other clubs being able to afford him.

Only a few clubs or so at the over inflated fee and wages able to afford Pogba which sees UTD keeping a player who wants to leave *evil laugh*.

Barcelona not going to sign Pogba.

11.) 03 Aug 2019 16:09:33
What offers have real made?

12.) 03 Aug 2019 16:24:59
Guys AJH has a point. The problem is not there is a convincing required for Dybala. But why to convince a player who is not seen as much needed who is not willing to move to us who will demand monstrous wage who has stalled for the past year. If it is someone who we have identified as main target it's worth going through the trouble. Imagine we sign him and has not really worked out then we will have another player on 350k wages very difficult to move.

13.) 03 Aug 2019 16:35:27
I said the same to shappy last week jred.
People are saying don't sign him he doesn't want to be here. Yet those same purple are saying keep pogba even though he doesn't want to be here.
If dybala comes and he and the team are successful he will love it at United. Just like aguero has done.
Im not desperate for him to sign if he does it would be potentially a very good and exciting signing.

14.) 03 Aug 2019 17:00:59
My wider point is he hadn't been mentioned by anybody, the fans hadn't suggested him nor were the club pursuing him. Suddenly a swap is on, not exactly thought through is it?

15.) 03 Aug 2019 17:02:49
You could say the same with pogba, if go his and uniteds way he may have a change in heart .
Not sure why everything needs to be set in stone .
I'm far from convince dybala would be a good fit in the epl, who who knows.

16.) 03 Aug 2019 17:11:34
Is it possible for a player to come in, not really wanting to come in at first and then change his mind? If he is the consummate professional, he might also put in some decent performances.

Also, he could just say no right now?

17.) 03 Aug 2019 18:00:01
He was mentioned a few month ago, don't know if the reports where true but he was linked a few months back.
But some times a player becomes available and you take a chance, any Cole, king Eric.

Is it possible that a player wants to leave then circumstances change and he changes his mind, Or do we hold it against him for the rest of his career.

18.) 03 Aug 2019 18:01:09
The club have had interest in dybala for 12 months according to ed002. i'm not convinced but he is a very talented player so if he settles it could work out.
Pogba is here and if he stays and does well he may well have a change of heart i agree but i'm not one for keeping unhappy players it usually doesn't work out. We can on my hope it does if he stays.

19.) 03 Aug 2019 19:33:15
Hi jred, not at all. I think if a player has a change of heart and wants to stay, put in the performances etc, he should most definitely get the chance. I think that's quite fair. But definitely no point keeping a player that is unhappy and wants to move. Does this answer work?

Is there a particular player you are talking about or just anyone in general?

20.) 03 Aug 2019 20:00:04
To many to mention to be honest once any one makes a mistake or reportedly does you want them out.
Lazy bad attitude said this said that.

21.) 03 Aug 2019 20:17:14
No, I'd like you to mention them. Very happy to give you my reasons behind everyone.

I'm quite sure that when I have shown my dissatisfaction in a player it is usually merited, justified.

I don't call for players to be bought and sold like in a game of FIFA.

I also am very happy to back good, hard working and loyal players when many dont. Again, when I feel its justified.

Feels like you're just having a pop though. It's something you like to do quite often. I hope I haven't upset you at any point. Or will you hold my opinions against me for the rest of my time posting on here? 😊.

22.) 03 Aug 2019 22:15:30
We have appointed Director of football - it's AJH

All sound decisions taken. 🤫.

23.) 04 Aug 2019 09:23:15
Reading the page the last day or two it’s clear we don’t need any insight from Ed002 as maxlfc knows absolutely everything about our club lol.

24.) 04 Aug 2019 20:42:32
Oh man :P
Wrote a post about how the youngsters are doing, and how you feel about them and this turned into Pogba/ Dybala debate.

25.) 05 Aug 2019 07:31:02
To be honest guys I don't care and the reason is we are focusing on players not playing for our club.
When the focus should be #GlazersOut.



24 Mar 2018 10:31:23
There are some that said Jesse wasn’t good enough and I guess there are still some that think he is at best a squad player but you have to give the lad credit. He keeps popping up scoring important goals and he plays with a smile on his face and seems to enjoy every moment. I’m so pleased for him and I hope he can take that final step and be consistent.


1.) 24 Mar 2018 16:25:04
He has always been highly thought off within the club. It was always accepted that he would take longer to find his feet due to his size. I read an interview with him where he said that Sir Alex always said he would become a real player when he's 25 like Tigana. I wonder how much of him really stepping up this season is down to him feeling that this year was going to be his year.

I did worry when we signed Sanchez as it was going to push either Lingard or Martial out of the side when arguably they we our best two forwards at that time. Maybe its time for Sanchez to be dropped for a game or two and make him fight for his place against players who are in form.

2.) 24 Mar 2018 16:40:40
Shaps, I don’t know why we bought Sanchez other than to stop City buying him. We had needs inother areas way before a left sided attacker was needed and even if he starts firing it just relegates Martial or Rashford. This smacks of Woodward and his marque signing obsession. I don’t want to upset you but if Bale is available you can bet your mortgage Ed will be there waving his chequebook.

3.) 24 Mar 2018 16:46:51
The thing with Jesse is you know he will work on the pitch and not hide. He has proven this year that he has more in the locker than people thought imo but he had the beginnings of a good season couple of years back when he got ani injury early on at Swansea I think. Change of personel and management has not deterred him and I think he has saved us a good few bob on bringing in a n other player.

4.) 24 Mar 2018 16:58:44
I was one of those thinking he wasn't going to be up to it and would be sold, at times I feel foolish, but then he can be anonymous far too often for me (like most of our attacking players) .

I still think in order for us to be competing at the very top we need better than Lingard. But if he improves again as much as he has over the past 18 months then he will deserve a regular berth in a top Utd team.

I love his energy and clever runs, maybe there is even more to come from him once we get back to playing proper attacking football and those runs will be picked out by players that currently refuse the pass and opt for 'safety' instead. I certainly would like him to impact games more consistently as well, 10 seconds of brilliance now and again is good, but we need more than that over a 90 minute match from an attacking midfielder.

5.) 24 Mar 2018 17:39:38
I agree Beastand that was my point about consistency. When he is good he is very good but often you can forget he is on the pitch, which is very frustrating when he gets himself in such good positions and scores such important goals. He needs to turn up for more games than he does, which I think he will if he continues to develop as he has done in the last year. And he is home grown which means a lot to me,

6.) 24 Mar 2018 17:52:11
Does he go missing or as mentioned above is it a case of him making good runs and his team mates not playing the creative pass to find him?

The best players score in the big games, which he does more consistently than those around him. H deserves his place in the team, he works hard, he offers movement and he can finish. I think he will thrive if we add more quality to the midfield. He is a bit of a social media whore, but as long as he performs on the pitch it’s not a problem. I wish pogba put half the effort in he does.

7.) 24 Mar 2018 18:33:58
Agree with all of the posts regarding jesse in some degree, better than dele alli in my opinion who plays a similar role especially this season.

8.) 25 Mar 2018 05:21:49
I must be the only one who doesn't yet rate him. He for me is going through his Smalling patch where player looks good for a season or 2 but with lingard it has only been 2 months rather than the whole season.

He was mostly anonymous until December and has been anonymous for most part since February. That is 2 good months in 3-4 years. Yes he scores some important goals from time to time but he going to have to perform much better to be more than a squad player.

9.) 25 Mar 2018 16:58:04
No MU player apart from De Gea has been sensational for long, playing good for some time and then playing poorly.

10.) 26 Mar 2018 14:14:47
CSM, that's not really fair, even if he's only started looking like a real top player this season, he's actually been doing well for the last couple of years. He was hardly "anonymous" before December anyway. 8 goals and assists in 17 games, 11 of which he played 30 minutes or less in, may not be setting the league on fire, but it's certainly not "anonymous".

Re: the consistency, I'm inclined to agree with Huggy. He's suffering from the way the team is playing, and would have a much more consistent impact if the runs he makes were picked out a bit more often by players behind him. Now, I'm not saying he's doing everything right, maybe he'd still be a bit inconsistent with players behind him looking for those runs and playing more positive football, but the point is that we don't really know, and I don't think it's fair to judge him too harshly when we don't really know how much of the inconsistency is down to him, and how much is down to the way the teamas a whole is playing.

I would really love to see Herrera used in a more advanced role, ahead of Matic rather than alongside him, where he can look to play the passes that someone like Lingard can feed on. It's too easy to see his great defensive performances last season and forget that he's a great passer of the ball, with an eye for getting team mates in behind the defence.

11.) 26 Mar 2018 14:23:10
That FA cup winning goal seemed to really kick him on and he’s improved a lot since then.


How you can say he’s been anonymous is beyond me, he’s probably scored more important goals than any other player in the last 2 years.

12.) 26 Mar 2018 14:53:27
Gds important goals don't mean consistency. Yes he scored against Chelsea and in fa cup final but can you remember a run of games until December where you could say he was consistently good. A first team player needs to be consistently good and unlike rashford or martial lingard isn't exactly in the youngster category.

Thorne he has been good this season but last season he had 5 goals and 3 assists in 42 games in lvg's last season he had 7 goals and 4 assists in 41 games. Those are not good figures and he needs get similar to his current nos before we can be sure that he has improved rather than going through a purple patch.

Also where exactly will he play next season jose wants savic added to the team and jorginho as replacement for carrick, so we most likely will be switching to a mf 3.

13.) 30 Mar 2018 18:44:50
Good player, nice lad, silly dancer.



17 Feb 2018 08:31:11
Interesting rumour this morning, Real ready to move for Pogba. Could be paper trash talk of course but if they did and the money was big, would you sell? Clearly the boy has talent but he has yet to dominate a game or deliver on his potential. Is that down to him, the Manager, or a combination of both.

If the money was silly should we cash in? The problem with that is that he may go on and become the dominating player we believe is in there somewhere, and replacing him will cost a fortune too. For me, I’d seriously consider it though.


{Ed002's Note - There is zero interest in Paul Pogba from Real Madrid. They have very, very different ideas who they want.}

1.) 17 Feb 2018 11:41:22
There is no way we should be selling Pogba it would be crazy to do so.

Its likr selling the next messi and then trying to go buy a next ronaldo because we are noy patient enough.

2.) 17 Feb 2018 11:59:12
"Cash in" wtf? So some now want to sell Pogba when we have few midfielders for a pretty poor return? You bored with FIFA?

3.) 17 Feb 2018 11:20:17
Yay. Thanks ed for that.



12 Jan 2018 21:19:21
All this talk of Sanchez has masked the rumour that Vardy is also being considered. Not sure if they would sell or at what price but I think he would slot in much easier, albeit he is a like for like with Lukaku. Sanchez’s attitude worries me, the stories from Arsenal about his isolationist approach do not bode well for team spirit. Hey ho, what do I know?


1.) 12 Jan 2018 21:28:45
I hope not. Hateful diving git, Gerrard, suarez, terry, barton, keown, cattermole, Vardy. all the same to me would of hated to see any of them in a red shirt.

2.) 12 Jan 2018 23:05:33
That's one heck of a team those lot would make. Lacks some wide players tho.

3.) 13 Jan 2018 05:53:05
bfbw, there too much hate in your heart, i'd have had Keown and Suarez any day of the week. Go hug a tree man.

4.) 13 Jan 2018 08:10:14
AJH Vardy is a player Maze likes and admired over the years for his tenacity as well as his rags to riches story but to say he is a better option than Sanchez is silly, very silly.

Wake up AJH you are dreaming of poorly fabricated scenarios.



08 Dec 2017 20:28:41
So, first of all, I share my birthday with Jonny Evans so put that your pipe and smoke it. Secondly, I may have had a little wine tonight so forgive me if I am less coherent than Ronnie during a transfer window.

Sunday is a big game and I hope that Jose wakes up and has an epiphany but I fear it will not happen. I believe it is better to die fighting than running away and in football that is also true. Inspire the troops, give them hope and belief, rouse their spirits, fill their hearts with pride and desire. Let’s not turn up to stifle and try and nick a goal on the break. I don’t care if they are the best team, like Pierre the famous French fighter pilot, let’s go down in flames (google it) .

We are United, a team steeped in history and tradition, we live or die by our standard, there are times to stand up and be counted, Sunday is one of those times. We win, or we lose in a blaze of glory, to be a United fan there are no in betweens.

Time for more wine.


1.) 09 Dec 2017 01:43:34
Jesse's performance at Arsenal will have given him food for thought. Maybe we can press high with a few players and cause some chaos amongst their back line. Worry is that Matic and Ander would have to play out of their skins.

The motivational piece is way more important than formation. Win your battles all over the pitch and you'll get a win.

2.) 09 Dec 2017 10:50:17
We’ll park the bus and try to catch them on the counter and via set pieces.

After 3 games are 5th above Spurs and Chelsea but apparently we’re all doomed. I’m told I need to respect everyone’s opinions, which I mostly do, but some people need to get a grip and stop reacting to very single incident or treating every match as season defining.

We are making progress, Ole may not be the answer but he is focusing on youth, hunger, and energy. Right now, that’ll do for me.


1.) 25 Aug 2019 19:10:27
Agree Tony, we can definitely see improvements, not sure what some expect, we aren't going to win the league and 4th was the aim, we are in a fight with 3 other teams whi have also lost a game already.
As you say, youth, pace, hunger, energy, all of which we cried out for is now happening, that's progress.

2.) 25 Aug 2019 19:50:29
Ole may not be the answer but he is paving the way for the next manager to come in and get a very young energetic talented squad, i strongly believe we will be competing in 2 years tops. We just need to add 2 more midfielders and a goalscorer machine and we will be there oh and i'm not too sure about De Gea anymore.

3.) 25 Aug 2019 20:04:02
What about quality and technical ability?

4.) 25 Aug 2019 20:11:58
We are making progress, crystal palace, wolves, 1 point.
Burnley got a point of wolves.
There isn't much progress there.

5.) 25 Aug 2019 20:37:43
Leahy, you prove my point, one of the posters who has made his mind up. Fair play, respect, but I disagree. It’s a long season, let’s see how we develop.



24 Aug 2019 19:50:28
I went on the chat halfway through the first half and decided not to bother, the negativity was suffocating. I fully expect a meltdown this week after the Palace game as people highlight every player, Manager, owner who is to blame for the loss.

Ole is going for a young line up, there will be us and downs. For what it’s worth I think we should have 7 points. Chelsea deserved a draw, we should have beaten Wolves and Palace. I’m happy to be patient, I think we will do well against the better teams but struggle when teams have 10 behind the ball. I have no idea if Ole is the answer but I’m happy wait and see. I love that James is playing and that Greenwood is involved. I like that Matic is on the bench and that Scott is first choice.

City and Liverpool are well ahead of everyone else, Spurs are probably sat on their own in 3rd but beyond that take your pick. The over reactions to wins and losses are a sight to behold. This year is a transition year, there will be more new arrivals, hopefully like Maguire and AWB and we will see the continued high press. We will see 4-0s but we will also see surprising losses, get over it.


1.) 24 Aug 2019 20:12:21
You think we should have 7 points😂😂.

2.) 24 Aug 2019 20:19:12
It's the old judging everyone and everything on a game by game basis again, mate. Some of the stuff on there is laughable. Over a football match.

3.) 24 Aug 2019 20:35:20
Were you surprised by that loss then AJH?

4.) 24 Aug 2019 20:58:46
Yes I was. We had played well for 2 games and had something like 70% possession in the first half but we didn’t create great chances. They scored with their first opportunity and then it was huffing and puffing and missing a penalty. It’s a long season there will be plenty of ups and downs.

5.) 24 Aug 2019 21:01:48
He's gonner go. Useless and manifestly out of his depth. Better the reason lady.

6.) 24 Aug 2019 21:05:04
Oh okay. I'm wasnt surprised at all. We have been quite poor for some time now. It's nice to see some of the younger lads get time. But it is a squad that lacks in depth and a team managed by a great man who is way out of his depth too.

Might be a season of ups and downs but boy are the downs going to be bad and could be often enough too.

7.) 24 Aug 2019 21:19:26
AJH. I don't think the immediate future looks good at all.
The club really did screw up the window and we are going to suffer for that. The young players are going to suffer for that.
Not selling pogba was a huge mistake and it will cost us.
The 3 new signings all look like our best players.
Martial has improved a lot and Rashford has been better.
I agree we did not get the breaks and a slice of luck here or there and we could have a couple more points but its boring insipid uninspiring football punctuated with the odd moment of really good play.
Rome was not built in a day that's for sure.
But it was built on solid foundations with a great leader.
Our leader ole has chosen to build ours on quicksand.
I just think we are nothing short of a car crash at the moment from the boardroom to the pitch.
Ole does seem to have a happy camp but the fact is it shouldn't be a happy camp because its producing nothing to be happy about.

8.) 24 Aug 2019 21:28:42
oles talks when he took over are simply that all talk.

9.) 24 Aug 2019 22:35:32
We should have had 2 penalties. Martial was clearly pulled down as he was shooting but because the referee regarded that as advantage given, it was not awarded. Wrong decision initially that could and should have been overturned. Of course, we would probably have missed it.

Nobody in their right mind would consider United close to being ready to compete at the top level yet given the youth of the squad and its lack of depth, however I've been fairly impressed with everything but the results. We rode our luck against Chelsea and deserved the win. Against Wolves and Palace we have been profligate from the spot, hopeless at free kicks and set pieces, but overall by far the better side. It's very frustrating.

10.) 25 Aug 2019 08:30:50
AJH re the chat I did the very same and had to leave before feeling obliged to perform an act self-annihilation in the manner of harakiri. Dear me it was a toxic pit of pity and hate. Not for a moment suggesting I enjoyed the match or the outcome but dear me the wailing and hatred in there. I have to wonder what it will be like when facing the inevitable future hiding coming our way.

Gary Neville is a United legend, red or dead, and his passion for the cub is evident. But his outburst after the Wolves game was embarrassing. Pogba missed a penalty, it happens, get over it. His over emotional and reactionary comments fuelled a lot of the chatter this week. I know he gats paid for being dramatic but he was out of order. I love how he passes judgement on Managers when his spell at Valencia was a major car crash. You would hope he would have a level of humility but apparently not. And Bolger, I’m with you mate.


{Ed047's Note - And in the red corner, AJH current unbeaten super heavy weight champion of the world and in the blue corner the challenger Ken “The Snowflake” McPunchy!

All of course said in a Michael Buffer voice. 🤪

I havnt seen anyone slam pogba on here because he missed a pen. I think we are all used to that.
I slam ole for letting him take another one.
Anyone can miss a pen but if they miss too many they shouldn't be given the responsability imo.
Rashford took the one the week before so why pogba felt the need to change that is beyond me.
As a player i didn't like taking them i have to say.
Missing 4 from his last 9 is too poor a record imo to take the ball from someone who scored the week before.
Anybody can miss them. I don't care who takes them as long as they have a good record.
Ajh i think you said before you manage people or did.
If someone on your team kept taking responsability for a certain task but failed to complete it several times to the detriment of the rest of the team would you just let him keep failing or would you ask someone else to step up? And take that responsability from him.

2.) 23 Aug 2019 20:31:32
He had missed 3 from 10 prior to the penalty on Monday and was our first choice penalty taker last season ahead of rash .
Is it really that big a deal .

3.) 23 Aug 2019 20:29:40
Ed047 nice one. although it should be ken F$$k the snowflakes mc punchy 😂 bunch of big girls blouses.

{Ed047's Note - 😂😂 sounds good to me!

4.) 23 Aug 2019 20:47:45
Its not that big a deal jred that he missed a pen jesus the best of players miss pens.

5.) 23 Aug 2019 20:47:46
Spot on about AJH, he simply just needs to chill out, but its not just him. Same applies to other united legends come pundits like scholesy, rio, phil neville etc.

The club really needs a period of cool calm collected decision making and the furore most pundits engage in is certainly not helping matters.

Same happened time and time again with liverpool and their ex players come pundits. Then they broughr klopp in and gave him a long rope and let him do his thing with a lot of time and grace period.

6.) 23 Aug 2019 20:49:23
If you keep missing then you should not be given the job, but the abuse Pogba has got on social media has been staggering. Neville helped fuel that with his emotional reaction. Ole needs to tell them who is taking them.

7.) 23 Aug 2019 21:00:18
Agree with that ajh.
Nobody should be abused they should just lose the job its common sense and imo weak management. I hope ole learns from this.

So your with bolger and feel ashamed to be a united supporter because of a few bellends i'm surprised at that i have to say.

8.) 23 Aug 2019 21:32:27
Ken if it's not a big deal why is still being discussed .
Before the game pogba had scored 7 of his 10 pens for united.
He was our designated penalty taker last season . What's the issue
What's the big issue with how bolger feels?

9.) 23 Aug 2019 21:24:28
Not ashamed this time ken but I’ve been ashamed a few times. I’m ashamed every time we play Liverpool and thousands of our fans chant appalling songs about Hillsbrough. I’m ashamed listening to the muppets who ring 606 every week and make me cringe with their bizarre opinions. Like it or not we are a big family and we have some who would be better off locked in the cellar as they are slightly deranged. Still family but hey ho.

10.) 23 Aug 2019 21:43:10
I think the diff is that when they talk about united they are guilty of talking like fans and not pundits.

11.) 23 Aug 2019 22:01:01
I'm with you Kenneth, and it's a big deal when it costs the team 3 points, and the reason it's a big deal is he isn't the best penalty taker in the team, rash is and he has proved it. So it makes sense for rash to take them, that penalty he took against psg was unstoppable.
But a weak manager isn't goi g to sort them things out,
And I do agree no player should get abused for missing a penalty.

12.) 23 Aug 2019 22:06:50
them points dropped at the end of the season are the difference between top 4 or not.

13.) 23 Aug 2019 22:31:38
Because people are passionate about it jred. You just have to accept that not everybody thinks the same. If you don't want to discuss it don't join the discussion. Just give out about the discussion and the posts people make.
You very rarely give out about players. You rather have a pop at your fellow supporters for airing their opinions
Nobody forcing you to join the thread if you don't want to.
Your opinion is its pretty irrelevant others feel differently i'm somewhere in the middle.
I don't blame pogba i blame ole.
I am a supporter of ole but not everything he does is right.

14.) 23 Aug 2019 22:45:46
AjH i would never be ashamed by the actions of others. They don't represent me or my views.
If one of my kids were singing those sick chants i wouldn't be ashamed i'd just think he was acting like a prick he wouldn't be embarrassing me he would be embarrassing himself.
Its sick and disrespectful but its only words i don't get too hung up on it really. As i said there are gobrubbishs in every walk of life but they don't represent me or my views i can't stop them it is what it is.
Lack of education lack of humility. You don't get it at rugby or gaa or baseball or nba or nfl its pretty unique to soccer mainly. Not just in england but all over the world. Its sad more than embarrassing as far as I'm concerned. They are scumbags, irrelevant people they don't ruin it for me i pity them and their ignorance.

15.) 24 Aug 2019 08:36:35
Good point ken. You'll see people give out about posters and threads on here with out ever contributing to the the discussion.

If you don't like the discussion, don't join it.

16.) 24 Aug 2019 09:02:52
Ole still hadn’t made a decision yesterday by what he said at his press conference. The issue was clearly there to be dealt with but the fact he hasn’t dealt with it and comes out with the dual takers nonsense, again, is frankly ridiculous. Is he afraid of upsetting Pogba? In terms of penalties it is the manager that is the issue not Pogba.

17.) 24 Aug 2019 11:57:46
I would have thought that was obvious angel.

18.) 24 Aug 2019 13:11:55
So it is a big deal?
Before he took the pen he had 7 out of 10 it's not great but I don't think it's the end of the world either, the fact he took 1 with that record.
Both of rashford's penalties for united have been good pens, but he has only taken 2 penalties for united .
It a missed pen, let's see what happens with the next 1.

19.) 24 Aug 2019 13:12:15
Ken like bolger is passionate about things .
I personally don't think it is a big issue, and my opinion is as relevant as anyone else .
Pogba is/ was our designated penalty taker last season .
Took 10 scored 7 I'm not really sure why it's a big deal he look one this season.
Rash has scored 2 . Each to there own tho.

20.) 24 Aug 2019 13:15:10
But the point is other people do.

21.) 24 Aug 2019 13:16:27
I just don't see it as an issue, like I say scored 7 from 10 prior so no issue with him taking it.
It was also pogba who won it with a great bit of play.

22.) 24 Aug 2019 13:56:55
Jred. If you took the time to read properly you would see i said. Your opinion is that its pretty irrelevant. Which is why its not worth discussing anymore. Not that your opinion is irrelevant.

I have not slammed pogba for taking and missing I've slammed ole for giving him the option after rash scored last week. I think its weak managment.
Pogba wanted to take it but imo he shouldn't have had that option.



17 Aug 2019 09:08:03
“The dynamics are changing, things are changing. From now on I will rely on him as on others. ” Zidane on Bale. So they can’t shift him, pre season has been awful, they look in disarray. Pogba may well want to go to Madrid but I don’t see how it happens right now. He might also consider Jose is sat waiting for the call if things don’t improve.

He wants out but he has no routes out right now so he needs to live with it, show his value, and wait for things to change. Or he could of course sulk.


1.) 17 Aug 2019 10:18:19
In truth there are probably only 5 club's outside of England that could afford him (Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG, Bayern Munich and Juventus) .

Of which I can't see Bayern ever going for him. He just isn't the profile of player they go for.

Juventus could afford him, but would need to do some sort of a deal or sell a player or two to balance the books.

That leaves the two Spanish club's and PSG. I don't see him at Barcelona, he doesn't fit their profile of player. Too selfish, not a typical Barcelona midfielder.

Real Madrid either can't afford him or are unwilling to pay for him as they don't value him that highly. My impression is that Zidane wants him and the Real board aren't that fussed for him.

I think he will move next summer to PSG. I think they will be looking for a big name to replace Neymar and they ideally want a french superstar player. Their midfield could do with a revamp as it's gone a bit stale recently. I could see Verratti finally getting his move to Juventus with Pogba replacing him.

2.) 17 Aug 2019 11:11:27
Shappy, I can see him at PSG and actually think they are a perfect match.

It’s a poor league which he will dominate, they win the league every season which makes him look good. He can go missing and it won’t really matter. And they get to the QF of the CL which is about his level.

3.) 17 Aug 2019 11:13:44
Exactly, people keep saying we should get rid but fail to come up with a suggestion as to who we should sell him to .
If he has a very good season I wonder if people will still be desperate to sell him.

4.) 17 Aug 2019 12:12:08
Sell him to city for a cut price fee in january?

5.) 17 Aug 2019 13:08:23
If he wants to leave then yes I would still sell him. Preferably next July or January if he forces it. But I would say to him he has to ask for the transfer and give up his cut. What's more important the money or his move.

6.) 17 Aug 2019 13:54:37
Mort I think we already know the answer to that, but I agree with what you are saying.

7.) 17 Aug 2019 13:59:43
Ajh, I'll laugh my head off if he does go to Madrid, Zidane gets sacked and Mourinho becomes their manager. Perfect scenario. They're welcome to him.

8.) 17 Aug 2019 14:36:21
Wazza I think the same but I would say to him if him or his agent start their games in the media and try and force it then I would force a transfer request.

AAA I would laugh myself silly if that happened. Although Woody would probably try and re-sign him.

9.) 17 Aug 2019 14:41:59
If he doesn't fit barcelona style you think he would suit Pep?

10.) 17 Aug 2019 21:14:34
Mort, some of these pre Madonnas should realize the grass is not greener in Madrid or Barcelona.
Is he stayimg, is he going? Frankly speaking, I'll drive him to Madrid, I'm sick of his stupid antics.

11.) 18 Aug 2019 07:45:38
Pre Madonna, are you thinking of Donna Summer?

12.) 18 Aug 2019 13:14:16

Pre Maradona lol 😁.

14.) 19 Aug 2019 05:43:08
Hopefully we get Champions league football next year.
Pogba out, Saul In.
Win win situation for all.



12 Aug 2019 20:25:28
Just saw a stat that DDG made more saves (7) yesterday than any other keeper in the EPL. It kind of confirms that on another day the score may not have been as flattering. Brighton won 3-0, and they only had 3 shots on target which reinforces the point.

Still, great spirit, clinical finishing and a real feel good mood. Really looking forward to the next game.


1.) 12 Aug 2019 21:26:44
Jose had it right when he said it will be interesting when we play the more compact teams. I'm looking forward to seeing this United come up against that.

2.) 13 Aug 2019 05:16:54
Our centre backs played well but Chelsea got in behind both full backs.

3.) 13 Aug 2019 07:26:52
Almost all shots were straight forward saves.
Stats don't show the entire picture.

I hope it is true as it sends a message through the squad. The rumour is we are offering to pay some of his wages but still nobody wants him, even on loan.

We also need DDG to sign a contract to follow up Marrial and Rashford doing so.

It’s a case of the E, peror’s new clothes for me. We see the odd great pass or flick but over a game he regularly disappears. We can argue all we like about how good a player he is but ultimately he doesn’t want to be here and doesn’t appear to be giving everything for the cause. Talent is great, but without effort and application then it is too often wasted.

Maybe Ole is going to give some youngsters game time, which is why players like Matic and Young will be invaluable squad members. I’d we do play Greenwood, Chong, Gomes, Garner, we need some wise old heads to help them adapt.

Good point Becks. Let’s play James on the left, let’s give Greenwood a chance, let’s let the defence get to know each other, let’s HAVE SOME FAITH! The only thing I would add is let’s get Garner into this squad.
