Latest rumour I've seen is we want Weghorst and Felix, which makes more sense to me. Options, and more creativity.


1.) 08 Jan 2023 18:26:33
That would do for now. Though not sure how felix would fit in our new wage structure?!

2.) 08 Jan 2023 22:07:35
how many players are a club allowed to loan in the PL?

3.) 09 Jan 2023 07:18:06
I wouldn't want Weghorst, but you have to trust the manager if he has identified him.

Joan Felix I think could be a fantastic signing. He doesn't fit the type of football being played at Atletico but he has all the minerals.

4.) 09 Jan 2023 07:46:44
I'd take both in a heartbeat. I'd take one in a heartbeat actually.
Neither are the ideal candidate but we need bodies up front.
Garnacho is a bonus and has stood in well for sancho but he is just a kid and the Ronaldo gap needs filling too.

5.) 09 Jan 2023 20:48:33
You are only allowed 2 loan signings and we already have butland, so it was never going to be both.
We probably moved onto weghorst when Felix was no longer an option.

6.) 10 Jan 2023 19:51:59
Wouldn’t touch Felix with a barge pole. His style and physical make up won’t suit the Prem one bit.



22 Jul 2022 10:00:09
Jesse Lingard.

Could have gone to West Ham and been at the upper end of the table fighting for Europe.

Decided to go to Forest for what will likely be a relgation dog fight. Hmm, I wonder why.


1.) 22 Jul 2022 10:13:20
I'd imagine it's so he doesn't have to move his family to London.

2.) 22 Jul 2022 10:18:30
A one year contract too. His agent was talking about PSG, Milan and Juventus interested in him a couple of months ago. Maybe the teams that actually did want him didn't match his ego.

I'm sure he thinks why not get paid handsomely for a year, finish top scorer and then join Madrid next year.

3.) 22 Jul 2022 10:25:00
Surprised he’s not gone on that Love Island!

4.) 22 Jul 2022 10:32:08
And only on a one season deal in case it's straight back down to the Championship. That over the MLS or trying to nudge his way back into the England set-up with West Ham as he was starting to do when on loan there.

5.) 22 Jul 2022 10:35:58
1 year contract on £200K a week plus signing n fee. He'll be able to do the same next year. Seems like the lad has done a pretty decent deal for himself.

6.) 22 Jul 2022 11:13:33
It's all about the money money money.

At least he will get game time. So many players move for money and see their careers die, Sinclair, Drinkwater spring to mind as examples.

7.) 22 Jul 2022 12:31:04
So much on Lingard all the time. Good luck to him if he's getting more money.

So what?

8.) 22 Jul 2022 13:32:13
He's not united so I don't care.

9.) 22 Jul 2022 15:47:46
Shappy is right, he isn’t allowed out of the house without his babysitter. Last time he gave them the slip he spent all his pocket money on chocolate and fizzy sweets. Best to keep him away from that London or he’ll be onto those American Candy stores and spend his £200k weekly wage on milk duds.

10.) 22 Jul 2022 16:28:28
Danny, I think you'll find that he has had to assume the care of his two school aged children while his mum was unable to care for them. On top of having a daughter of his own who lives with her mother after they split up.

Living in Nottingham means he is still close to his family.

While a big wage packet certainly won't do him any harm.

I'd imagine he will see it as an opportunity to stay close to his family earn a big wage and potentially put himself in the shop window for a club like Everton, Leicester or Newcastle.

11.) 22 Jul 2022 17:24:31
Shappy, trains to Nottingham from Manchester take 2 hours, the same time it takes to drive. 2 hours also for Leicester, 3 hours for Newcastle.

Trains to London take 2 hours, and are far more regular. Nottingham is not close to his family, but its a lot more lucrative.

same as driving,

12.) 22 Jul 2022 17:26:17
That should be school aged siblings.

13.) 22 Jul 2022 18:23:06
Poor babysitter has their work cut out. Get two kids to school and then back to cut the crusts off Jessie’s sandwich and get him down for a quick nap before training.

14.) 22 Jul 2022 19:52:32
This is some mad post about why an ex United player has signed for a football team ?

Has anybody here spoke with him? How would any of ye know and who cares why or why he didn't sign for a club.

Got get that money Jesse, enjoy yourself and keep being you.

15.) 22 Jul 2022 21:04:28
Couldn’t give a damn about what Jesse Lingard is doing. When he was coming through I liked the lad, but the past 2 seasons at least I’ve thought he was a git.

Forget him.

16.) 22 Jul 2022 21:08:05
Indeed. It’s his business and his alone. He’ll play every week, it’s a great traditional club, and he’ll be handsomely paid.

As for logistics, I’m sure he’ll work it out by himself ???.

17.) 22 Jul 2022 18:59:50
Despite all this, Lingard’s going straight into my FPL Team!

18.) 23 Jul 2022 13:57:49
Shappy is so busy now googling travel times to uphold the most ridiculous argument of the day?? nice one ajh. Lots to be said b
For knowing your geography??.



14 Nov 2021 08:56:04
I was told last night that Ole has agreed to step aside once a replacement has been found.

Don't know where this rumour came from but hopefully it has legs.


1.) 14 Nov 2021 09:22:12
It does seem like the club have used the international break and particularly Ole and the players not being there to assess their options and hopefully through intermediaries reach out to potential candidates to test the waters.

2.) 14 Nov 2021 10:11:33
I think there’s zero chance of Ole agreeing to step aside. If the club replace him, he’ll be getting compensated handsomely.

3.) 14 Nov 2021 11:56:13
If this is true, at least the club aren't rushing around and are taking their time to make a decision.

4.) 14 Nov 2021 16:05:17
I don’t doubt it Danny, but if it is true, at least Woody can crack on without having to be too secretive.

5.) 14 Nov 2021 18:29:34
Maybe he doesn't know he agreed to step aside, just sayin.

6.) 15 Nov 2021 11:22:14
Any truth to the Zidane rumours?

7.) 17 Nov 2021 08:11:26
TOHoM, only that it is true that they are rumours ?.



03 Aug 2019 14:20:49
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.

Good player, nice lad, silly dancer.




AJH's banter posts with other poster's replies to AJH's banter posts


04 Nov 2023 10:14:36
Today we find out whether the players give a toss. The amount of criticism and negativity this week has been huge, the players can choose to sulk, or show some passion and effort.

We may not win, but the minimum we shpukd expect is commitment, energy, and drive. If we don't see that, then the end is nigh.


1.) 04 Nov 2023 10:44:17
Come on AJH

Do you honestly think any of these clowns really give two hoots

In their tiny heads they all think their world class and it is everyone else’s fault

They still go home to their mansions and millions in the bank

Sick of the lot of em.

2.) 04 Nov 2023 11:07:37

Agree, after a one to one with ETH we will see the response.

3.) 04 Nov 2023 11:34:33
I think a lot of fans are starting to feel that way Blackpool.

I know many who in the past defended the club and players to the death, and even they are now changing how they feel and getting totally fed up of it all.

If people paid hundreds of thousands of pounds a week can’t be arsed to at least do the minimum and put in 100% effort, even if they aren’t at the top of their game, then they shouldn’t be here.

4.) 04 Nov 2023 11:38:46
Where does blame lie if after the one 2 one you see no better effort in your opinion redman?

Captain fantastic Bruno Fernandes steps up. It might have been flat but there was an effort in that performance. A few of you can have a day off now.

Brilliant win and needed that. Proud of the boys. Now to copenhagen. Should surprise us.

Amazing what a win does Ahmad. It might be a bit easier to talk about football for the next few days.

8.) 04 Nov 2023 16:25:23

There will be opportunities to vent about bad results and our poor play this season. for the time being i am enjoying a nice glass of red and the win. Did not see the game, but the result was what mattered the most given where we are atm. cheers everyone.

9.) 04 Nov 2023 17:07:13
Been off line since half time. Great to win away, first half they seemed to put effort in.

Tumble , players should play for the shirt. I don’t accept them downing tools. Play the ones who will give 100%. I support what the manager did with Sancho and a firm approach.

Copenhagen better bit surprise us we played them a week ago. They were better than us for periods in that game. With the right attitude and concentration we should beat them but we need to create more and be stronger in possession.
Good graft today but it was less than inspiring. But at the moment all that matters is wins. 2 more must wins before the intl break.



25 Oct 2023 09:22:56
I think it's time for ETH to grow a pair. Drop Fernandes and play Eriksen at 10, drop Rashford and play Garnacho. Bruno and Rash have been awful this year, time for them to have a rest.

Hats off to Harry, never moved, just got in with it. The abuse on here and elsewhere on the Internet has been pretty horrible. He may not be world class but he clearly cares and gives his all. Interesting that our win rate is higher when he plays, who'd have thought?

Too many players not delivering right now, time to shake them up. Right now, I can only think of a couple of players I want to keep, the rest can all go.


1.) 25 Oct 2023 09:46:11
I'm with you there AJH.

2.) 25 Oct 2023 09:51:00
AJH - i said exactly the same thing about Bruno.
People forget that Eriksen is a proper number 10. He was brilliant in that position for Ajax and Spurs.
He's been played in the wrong position since he came to United.
Maybe dropping Bruno might give him the kick up the arse he needs.

3.) 25 Oct 2023 10:28:10
Been saying this for weeks now. It’s blatant favouritism and it’s impossible to defend ETH on this. The Rashford non substitution last night was strange. Generally, he just goes inside puts head down gets tackled and does same again.
Do we ever cross a ball? Goal came from one, yet that apart it’s become alien to us, not using all methods to create a goal, the opposition know what we are doing.

4.) 25 Oct 2023 10:50:25
Agreed ajh, other than his worldie against Burnley Bruno has been crap. As for rashford I honestly don’t know what his problem is, seems completely disinterested and unmotivated. Question on that then, sancho has been exiled for poor training etc and then his childish reaction to being called out. so I assume rashford is training well? If so what happens on match day? Honestly they give an air of wanting the manager gone. I refuse to believe that they train all week like they perform during games so why the change.

5.) 25 Oct 2023 11:07:13
If Eriksen is second choice at number 10 and in cm, what did we buy Mount for?

This seems to be a major failing in the summer’s transfer policy. We spent a big chunk of the budget on a player that doesn’t seem to have any role at the club. I still don’t understand it.

6.) 25 Oct 2023 11:10:48
Hoijland must be pulling his hair out playing along side Rashford and Antony. He gets absolutely nothing from the both of them.
Rashford just keeps doing the same thing time after time running with the ball in to players.
Antony can't or won't even try and beat a player now. He's that bad at the moment he's not even cutting inside.
The full backs are the only hope for Hoijland. At least Dalot and Reguilon try and overlap ad cross the ball.

7.) 25 Oct 2023 11:17:13
I can understand why eth is persevering with a few. All managers try to play players through poor form I get that. However it's been a prolonged time now and not only is the form bad imo the body language is poor.
I firmly believe that until any player that was here under the end if Jose and the full ole and Ralph debacle need to labe the club.
They spent 3 or 4 years doing exactly as they pleased and were not professional. We will never get those players back. They have been let rule the roost for too long and don't like being asked to play to a plan so simply don't apply themselves. They do not like being told what to do and need to be moved on. They don't like what was done to sancho or ddg and are not applying themselves as a result.
Klopp had 78% of the squad he inherited with bag habits gone before he won anything.
Changing styles and habits takes time.
On the downside Anthony is looking very poor and ineffective and imo needs to be dropped.
Mount needs to get into the team in replacement of Bruno imo.
These lads don't like things unless they are allowed to do what they want.
Until most or all of them are gone things won't change. They don't even put in a tackle they are too precious. I can't imagine what a training game is like compared to when we had real men playing for the club.

8.) 25 Oct 2023 11:42:12
Have to agree, Bruno been very poor all season, but in his defence he been moved all over the place, hardly ever played in his best position, so maybe he not a happy bunny.
I don’t believe Rashford training bad otherwise the school teacher would not play him, maybe he unhappy at what he sees and hears!
I don’t believe Cas legs gone either overnight, maybe he not happy
Clearly there are problems behind the scene all is not rosey.
I keep being told how good it is having ETH because he instilled discipline well maybe he should instil some in himself.
Antony Rashford and even Bruno should not be in every game no matter what, but yep they are!
If you were a player and you keep seeing under performers picked week in week out, that causes dressing room problems and let’s be fair he wanted McT and McG out, but even though quality not there they give there all…and he probably would not be playing either if his favourites were back

For 60 mins of that game last night is was diabolical again as it’s been all season and let’s remember it’s Copenhagen we made them look world beaters!

30 mins we played sort of OK how much of that was due to Copenhagen tiring and the crowd assisting we don’t know, .

Amrabat is never ever the required level, Mount must think what I come to, they don’t even know where they want to play him

To me it all looks a mess and getting harder to sit and watch game by game, but I keep being told we’re going to come good when the players are back, why exactly I have no idea
Clearly ETH likes Dalot more then AWB anyway Varane can’t be relied on, so really all we’re missing is Martinez and Shaw and we took Reguillon and got McG Evans and Lindleorf to cover.

I said last year that this team got nowhere near enough goals in it, Rasmus is willing be he not at the required level atm but in his defence, he gets ZERO service anyway, so it’s hard being a striker in this team for anyone.
Antony had 3 years coaching from ETH still can’t cross a ball, how bad was he 4 years ago then!

We are so easy to play against it’s unbelievable even a novice manager could set up against us and look like a world beater

If we get out this group and it’s a big IF no idea what happens when we come up against a really good team.

Every game that goes past we are further away from top 4 too, it’s a real mess, but we get the defenders back and all will be ok, LOL. We could not get enough goals last season with the first back 4 and we not added any goals to that so why does anyone think it will get better, OK we may control the ball a bit more, but who is going to score!

9.) 25 Oct 2023 12:10:28
Right iw I'd keep Gara hi, provably Hojlund but yet to be convinced, and Shaw, who has been one of pur most consistent performers in recent years. Martinez was great this year but has been poor so far thisnyear.

Everyone else I would be happy to shift out. Arteta changed pretty much the whole squad at Arsenal, qe need to do the same.

10.) 25 Oct 2023 12:23:53
Rashford doesn't know what he is doing for United. The system is designed to allow players to rotate as they advance with the deeper player exploiting the gaps, the other players rotate to cover this. Rashford doesn't cover very well, he likes to do what he does ie run at players in space or he sulks. This fits in with rumours I have heard and I am sure others have in that he is a bit of a prima Donna and wants to be the main man.

11.) 25 Oct 2023 12:42:37
Oh dear. Ahmad is going into meltdown when he reads this thread.

12.) 25 Oct 2023 13:15:07
I'm not sure if Bruno is doing much wrong at all if I'm honest. His role is the create chances, only two players (Trippier and Maddison) have created more chances in the league THIS season, last season he was the single biggest creator of chances in the league.

I'm not sure if we will create more chances by dropping literally the third best creator in the league THIS season. That doesn't sound likely or logical to me.

As for Rashford, his form isn't great, he seems to be having a confidence issue. Taking too many shots from poor positions like he is desperate to get a goal. Which isn't surprising, strikers/ forwards performances are heavily judged on goals.

Also to be fair it's hard to score consistently when the team is playing poorly and you are feeding off of fewer chances and chances of poorer quality.

I don't think Rashford is the problem, but his form seems to be a symptom of bigger problems with the side currently.

The individual mistakes in defence are costing us goals and putting more pressure on our forwards to score. While our midfield are struggling to control games and effectively move the ball forward.

In Rashford's case I think he is badly missing Luke Shaw. Having that player who can overlap him effectively to pull a full back away from Rashford as he cuts inside. Shaw is also very good at finding Rashford at the right time of his run, while offers great cover defensively. All things that will be impacting Rashford's performances in their absence.

While having no right winger/ forward for most of the season for various reasons has also allowed teams to shuffle further across their back line to congest the areas that Rashford plays in.

So there are various reasons that will provide context and are having a significant impact on Rashford's form.

Even if we were to drop him, those issues would be just as prevalent to whoever replaces him. This was seen in the first few games of the season when Rashford played at CF and Garnacho played LW and was at least equally as poor as Rashford has been this season of not more so. The problems with our lack of goals are not strictly down to the form of our forwards, but that certain contextual situations have impacted the form of our forwards. Until those issues are resolved we will continue to struggle.

Bruno and Rashford contributed 70 goals and assists to our team last season. If they are the problem to our lack of goals this season then we actually don't have a solution.

13.) 25 Oct 2023 13:33:15

I am used to it. we have a divided fan base and how we look at things. Some think we should sell the majority of the squad and don't rate them.

14.) 25 Oct 2023 13:33:42

I agree with you. It's about time Rashford and Bruno were dropped
Maguire is leading by example, hats off to the guy. His last 2 games he has played very well.

15.) 25 Oct 2023 17:56:29
First half yesterday we found it difficult to break down a solid compact team who made us play slowly and sideways! We massively missed Martinez I thought watch it who always looks forward and quickly and can break the lines, Maguire and varane couldn’t! Really thought that was a big issue last night.



07 Oct 2023 20:32:18
Whatever is happening on the pitch, there are clearly issues off the pitch.

In his post match comments, ETH mentioned words like commitment, attitude, determined, fight for the badge, you have to earn it.

There are some not so subtle messages to the players there, stop whining, get your heads sorted, deliver.

If we still have toxic whingers, let's ship them out. Scott gets some stick on here, much of it unwarranted, and whilst he may not be the highest quality, his commitment to the club and badge can never be doubted. We need a few more with that attitude.


1.) 07 Oct 2023 22:01:17
Nearly brought me to tears at the end AJH. I am one who has been very frustrated with scotty this year - and quite honestly he should have gone for the good of his own career.

The last appearance he was not good enough, and no doubt it is because of everything going on around him. But today he showed more what he is about. He has an eye for goal, due to being a striker when younger. He is a very passionate lad, and I think he came in and showed a few (myself included) that he is a player, and a fighter.

All the players came over to him, the manager, the staff. The crowd stated and were raucous. We needed that win. We need that moment to show what we are about.

I am immensely proud of our players for a battling 2-1 win at home at brentford. Never thought I would say it, but I am.

Let's stick together and build from here.

2.) 08 Oct 2023 06:38:34
We've seen this before as well.
McTominay when pushed higher, pretty much hits the target with most of his shots.
He looked quick, clinical and very decisive yesterday.
Maybe it's he comes as a sub to change games and even starts, but he has to start higher, he is nowhere a DM.
After today's performance the guy warrants and has to be rewarded with more gametime.

I honestly cannot remember the last time a sub came and scored a double in extra time to win us the game, that was magnificent.

3.) 08 Oct 2023 09:26:48
McTominy is obviously a popular player with the other players, I don't recall there ever being bad noise about him. Previous managers have loved him too.
We can all agree he is not the top quality first team we want . but as with under Sir Alex players like him do have a role.
Backpass you are right about him performing when pushed forward as he seems to do for Scotland he has an eye for goal so maybe as as a second striker he could have an impact from the bench.
Great scenes and end to a very poor game.

4.) 08 Oct 2023 10:04:06
Good posts above ?

I am one who has always defended McTominay. I’ve said many times that Ole played him out of position because we failed for years to buy a DM. He’s not a DM, he’s a failed striker who needs to be played further forward.

I also said he was abysmal against Brighton, because he was. And the same against Bayern.

But yesterday he showed what he’s about and he’s got a few people back on side because of it. The noise was deafening inside OT.

All that said (and with all due respect), we are celebrating a home win against Brentford. The type of victory may just be the sort that pumps a little more air through the lungs this coming week. We have two very winnable fixtures before the derby. It might just be that we go into that game after 3 wins on the bounce. Who knows.

But like AJH mentions above, the managers words are clear, and are in fact consistent with what he’s been saying for a long time. There is clearly a lack of effort from some players. I read a post on here yesterday saying that they’d like to see all of the Ole era players gone before judging ETH. I tend to agree, with a few exceptions such as Bruno who has been our best player, and arguably Lindelof who is a good backup CB and does not strike me as one of the cabbage brains.

All in all, a win changes the mood around the club, and on here. So hopefully we have a good week to look forward to, and no mid-week banana skin to ruin the mood.

5.) 08 Oct 2023 12:51:15
Scotland always use him in a more advanced role and he seems to do better for them. Says a lot that as a last throw of the dice we're throwing on a midfielder everyone's been desperate to see leave for a year. But even so, as sub appearances go, that's up there.

6.) 08 Oct 2023 13:54:26
Because what ETH bought is no better then what we had or got

On yesterdays showing, is Arambat any better then Fred, Fred got more legs that’s for sure, although I agree Fred not a DM, but that’s what a coach is for to coach and adapt, from yesterdays showing is Arambat a DM in premier!
Is Onana any better then DDG apart from kicking
Is Mount any better then Bruno, ETH must feel so otherwise why else stick and waste Bruno on the right, where on earth is Mount bought to play?
Is Evans any better then Lindleorf or McGuire
Is Antony good enough to challenge for the league

Even if any are any better it’s marginally so and nowhere near are any of them good enough to challenge for the league, so if that’s where we want to be heading what’s point in buying them if you got to replace again to challenge.

7.) 08 Oct 2023 14:07:03
Eriksen better than McFred
Casemiro better than McFred
Mount better than McFred
Amrabat better than McFred
Sabitzer better than McFred
Martinez better than Maguire, Lindelof, Bailly etc
Antony better than Sancho (arguable)
Hojlund better than Martial

The big question mark is Onana who has not had a good start at all, but let’s see how he does over a full season.

The rest such as Malacia, Reguilon, Bayindir, Weghorst, Evans have been signed either as squad depth, or because we are generally poor in the transfer market.

So, what are you on about?

8.) 08 Oct 2023 14:41:01
In your opinion Wazza you mean, but mine is in answer to you

Eriksen better than McFred, (if a game was only 30 mins long I would agree)
Casemiro better than McFred, (the way he looked yesterday or most this season really)
Mount better than McFred, (oh yeah Mount played a blinder and scored 2 yesterday, oh no that was McT)
Amrabat better than McFred (based on what you seen in last 3 games! )
Sabitzer better than McFred (you might not notice but Sabitzer not here)
Martinez better than Maguire, Lindelof, Bailly etc ( on last season maybe on this season Nope)
Antony better than Sancho (arguable) ( both useless)
Hojlund better than Martial. (I already said that)

The big question mark is Onana who has not had a good start at all, but let’s see how he does over a full season. ( looked awful so far)

The rest such as Malacia, Reguilon, Bayindir, Weghorst, Evans have been signed either as squad depth, or because we are generally poor in the transfer market.
(Poor in transfer market which goes back to what I say, 90% of ETH buys are no better or very marginally better at best not good enough to challenge for league! )

9.) 08 Oct 2023 15:24:36
It’s all opinions strangeways but you’re talking nonsense mate if you’d rather have McFred back over any combination of Cas, Eriksen, Sabitzer, Amrabat and Mount.

10.) 08 Oct 2023 16:15:46
It’s not worth it Wazza, he would argue red is green.

11.) 08 Oct 2023 17:30:51
No he wouldn't GDS ;)

12.) 08 Oct 2023 23:28:27
The whole squad has started the season crap and now we have folk turning on the manager, who for the first time in years had something positive building last season.

Hell even for a couple of weeks there were dreams of a title race lol. Progression isn’t lineal, but the revisionism around his body of work (in particular by strangeways) is ridiculous.

Bloody support the manager for a change.

13.) 09 Oct 2023 10:44:15
Wazza I never said I would rather have McFred over anyone what I said is the players being bought are no better or marginally better then what we had or got and we are never going to challenge with them.
ETH Bought in
Did have (but last season)

Out of that lot who is going to win you the EPL or Champs league, if these was not in a united shirt would any of them bother you, I think not.

100% football is all about opinions, if there was a right or wrong someone would have cracked it by now and would win everything every year, it’s just sad when a new poster post he/ she get shot down in flames for having an opinion they end up not bothering and the same regurgitated stuff goes round and round.

Be nice once in a while to read new posters views but narrow minded souls don’t seem to like it if it’s a different view then there own.

I'll make the effort to get involved with the discussion here more. I'll give up that king of the lurkers title for now.



21 Sep 2023 21:05:01
So, we're either very unlucky or we're getting relegated.

The truth is that the club is a mess and that has permeated to the players. Zlatan told a story about taking a bottle of juice out of a hotel mini bar and then having £1 docked from his wages; that's how we treat players. Imagine what else might be going on behind the scenes.

Something is rotten and I have no idea how it gets fixed. It happened with Mourinho, he had a very solid season and the season after the players stopped trying. The same is happening how. A strong season last year yet now we have players who are not trying and seem not to care. Cas and Martinez were immense last year, this year they have been awful, whilst Rashford looks disinterested. Yes, injuries have been awful, but the lack of figh5 or passion is shocking.

Ole's interview was revealing, players looking to leave, poor recruitment, a very crappy culture. He didn't get the players he wanted, neither did Jose, neither did LVG. We used to be the richest club but those days have long gone. When we sh9upd have been targetting Kane and Rice, we signed Mount (no idea why) and Hojlund, who may turn out great, utis currently a kid with potential. It has been a slow inexorable slide since SAF and DG moved on and the circus clown took over. Until a professional structure is implemented I don't see things changing, it will simply be rinse and repeat.

Talk of relegation is plain silly, but I can see mid table mediocrity looming; we have no divine right to be at the top, other teams are moving up and the big 6 is not as obvious as it once was.

A change of ownership may see changes but they are not guaranteed. City and Newcastle seem to be doing it the right way, but we could just as easily end u0 with another poor owner.

All very depressing, and I see it being years before it is properly fixed.


1.) 22 Sep 2023 02:54:07
I think we will be challenging for top 4 this year, but frankly after last season we should have been aiming higher. City will win another epl this year and we aren't even trying to stop them. We are worried about earnings per share and dividends, shirt sponsors, new uefa league (possibly new breakaway league, but shhhhh don't tell anyone) .

I am steadfast in my support for EtH. Many are saying they support him but he has to win next 4 or whatever. I think people need to realise the spot we are in. Saturday will be a huge test. We need a win. But if anyone thinks we can't lose they are not respecting this league.

I like the rumour that sancho will be shipped out in jan for any price. I want him out of our club. I am looking forward (with hope! ) To see amrabat, Mainoo and Mount to hopefully give us more in midfield.

Mctominay needs a mental reset. Must be difficult for players to hear almost universally that you are not good enough. But if he doesn't have passion, he basically has nothing. So he is nowhere near the team.

Varane leads our defense. And we miss him. Martinez is not suddenly a bad player, but he is taking time to come back from injury. We will get better, but we may not have hit the bottom yet.

2.) 22 Sep 2023 02:55:08
How anybody can say that ETH isn’t getting the players he wants is beyond me. The reason we signed Mount is because ETH wanted him. Same goes for Onana and Hoijlund, and every other player that we’ve signed since ETH came to power (other than perhaps CAs, who was signed to appease the fans after we spent all of last summer chasing FDJ; a player that ETH wanted but didn’t want to come to us) . The reason we didn’t sign Kane and Rice this summer is because we signed Onana, Hoijlund, and Mount instead. We could’ve probably have gotten both had we signed Reya instead of Onana (assuming Rice would’ve been open to a move up north, which I’m not sure he would have) .

3.) 22 Sep 2023 03:53:19
We could not have signed either, behave.

4.) 22 Sep 2023 04:39:48
Until we get rid of the Glazers we’ll never be able to crack on and move forward into a modern football club. It’s that simple. The culture that runs through the club and which ETH is doing his best to eliminate, stems from the very top. When you have mercenary owners who just want to sit in that position, give absolutely nothing, then expect to skim the rewards……what does that say to each and every employee at the club. It breeds a culture of greed and laziness, and that’s what we have seen. I feel sorry for ETH because he’s effectively been told to come in and polish a turd. I’m fully behind the gaffer, my only slight criticism has been his reliance on ex players in the market. Having said that, they are all top players despite the protestations of some fans. We’ll be ok, but not until the Glazers go.

5.) 22 Sep 2023 05:18:22
I am happy we didn't sign kane.
We have got to stop spending majority of our budgets on 30 year olds.

6.) 22 Sep 2023 09:09:44
There was very very little chance of us getting Kane or RIce, just media rubbish to keep a few pundits in jobs -

What should be more concerning as we all know is why Brighton, West Ham, Villa, Brentford, Wolves to name a few seem to pick up very decent players and then improve them and generally play nice football whilst we look to be throwing money at players - (some decent ones) that just don't improve or gel. that's the biggest problem.

7.) 22 Sep 2023 13:37:24
Some very good posts there Dodgy, I fully agree with you. Except about the point of rock bottom, I think we’ll see an improvement from now on.

Bring on tomorrow night and a bounce back to winning ways!

8.) 22 Sep 2023 13:38:51
It has been said by others but the problem we have is that we are not aspiring to be Brighton or West Ham, so, while those teams may be picking up very good players they are not necessarily quite good enough to win the EPL or ECL. In any event, there is no reason to believe that these very good players would necessarily thrive under the pressure of being at United, rather than at Brighton or West Ham. It's a whole different ball game. How are Chelsea doing after all their upheaval? Everyone thought Potter was a great manager at Brighton, but at Chelsea he failed.

I agree with Fireman C that the problem comes from the top and the way the club has been run, which, under Woodward was with ineptitude and arrogance, with a clear primary focus, as directed by the Glazers and the ethos their ownership established, of creating a marketing and financial enterprise, rather than a football team . How often did Ed002 refer to those running the club as amateurs?

We have been beset by injuries and a tough opening schedule, and we have not performed well enough. At most clubs this would be largely unremarkable, but at United it creates a journalistic feeding frenzy. This is the background that ETH and the players have to work against. We better hope things improve because, judging from our experiences since SAF retired, managing or playing at United creates pressures that do not exist at Brighton for West Ham. If ETH fails and is fired, it's hard to see how the next manager will fare any better under the same spotlight.

9.) 22 Sep 2023 14:37:21
I agree and I am optimistic about sat.

But I have read many fans who are saying we must win our next 4 or 5 or EtH should go. Epl doesn't work like that. And an away game at burnley in a funny evening slot on saturday after Bayern away in UCL is a tough fixture.

If course we should win. But it will be a good win if we do.

10.) 22 Sep 2023 16:52:02
I think ten hag will be gone by January.
The players have given up on him and his demands, the sancho saga will be the nail in the coffin for ten hag. Already reports players are unhappy with sancho being exiled.
Until these players and the player power culture is booted out the club will continue to fail.
I have heard a whispers southgate will be utd manager by 2024 / 2025. Another incredible decision.

11.) 22 Sep 2023 17:08:07
Sancho is unhappy sancho has been exiled. McGuire, Sancho and mctominay are unhappy and leaking rubbish. Go figure.

Don't believe the noise, this is why they all had to go, because they aren't good enough, and worse they are toxic.

12.) 22 Sep 2023 17:29:05
Unless there is a complete collapse I do not believe Ten Hag will be gone by January. If the club succumbs to whining players, or even some whining fans, it has learnt nothing from the past and we can expect the merry-go-round of ineptitude to continue as yet another manager is sacrificed, quite probably for someone weaker and less competent.

The problems at the club are deep and holistic. They do not originate with the manager. Firing him will not solve anything even if there's a short term bounce. They have to commit to Ten Hag as Arsenal did to Arteta. The manager must be allowed to manage.

Cant believe I am reading that manager will be gone by Jan. If you are trying to push for that, then I totally disagree. If you are not, then don't circulate and increase the level of noise around around it. It can only be coming from Sancho's side. He is out. He doesn't want to apologize. Aparently his agency was contacting pundits to try and get support from them. It is a complete joke and the player can never be in the right for what he did.

Maybe the British players who are surplus to requirements could form a sewing circle while the rest if the squad gets on with turning the season around.

Eth should be cracking skulls and we should absolutely support him.

I don't want him out. Just think the club will side with the players if it came to it.

Tom22 - If the players have given up, it should be those who are kicked out of the club, not the manager. As you say, the player power needs to end.

Sancho should be long gone in January. McTominay won't be far behind him.

I do wonder if Rashford is an ETH player, I wonder if he'd be so prominent in the first 11 if ETH hadn't had so many more pressing issues to deal with.

Either way, if we get rid of this manager because the players continue to be entitled little brats, I for one won't be attending any games for the second half of the season as I refuse to watch players disrespect those who came before them.

I know it won't make the blind but of difference, but I stopped going under Ole and I stopped going under Jose for the same reason, somebody else will take my ticket.

I think (rather hope) that ETH will still be here beyond January and I'm optimistic that tings will improve from here. We still need a RB, DM and CM. I'd like to see ETH bring these players in and finally be able to call the squad his, and then we can truly see if he is or is not good enough, which I think he is.

If fans are discussing this, the players and their mouth piece media muppets are winning.

Don't even think about it. Just back the manager no matter what it takes. They either fall into line or go. Simple. I don't believe he is unfair. Talk of favourites is utter nonsense, that is ten hag's job. To pick the players he thinks can make us win. If you are not one, talk to him to figure out what you need to do, and do it. If you want the manual, go sit down with Wan Bissaka who was on the outside and worked his way back in.

Don't like it? Grow a pair and get a move lined up somewhere.

Man utd is a privilege, spoiled brats need not apply.

Wazza, I completely agree and hope the manager is backed by the club. For to long have the players held the power and standards have fallen to a worrying low.
The recruitment from club and manager I have my doubts on but that's another matter.
Dodgy it's a discussion forum, I'm not spreading anything. Like you I hope the club stay strong but I do have doubts.
Anyway hopefully our season starts tomorrow and we can kick on.
Have a good weekend all.

First we heard rumours the players were annoyed with Sancho and his effort in training now they are annoyed he is being dealt with. It's almost like media are making stuff up to have a story to sell.

I was one of his biggest supporters but my patience ran out a while ago, he's capable of great things but rarely does them. A humble kid who now has all the bling that goes with being a young footballer, he should have been dropped months ago. It's the lack of effort that gets me.

A few years ago he was carrying the team and then he got injured against Wolves. Since then he has been awful, apart from a hot spell last year. He's an established international who should be setting an example, not moping around the pitch.

Strangeways, we all know it's your opinion because you never stop banging on about it. Your entitled to think what you want but you're just boring. A bit like a 4 year old stamping his feet. We know how you feel, you don't have to tell us 3 times every day.

I find myself regularly agreeing with Stand, we are in danger of becoming a laughing stock.

We know we have issues behind the scenes but signing Evans was bizarre even by our standards. This also links to the lack of players coming through the Academy, are we really saying we don't have a prospect better than Evans? Mind boggling.

If I'm Maguire, why would I go West Ham who are not great? Everyone knows I'm available and they now know £30M will do, so perhaps I would just sit tight for the next 2 weeks and see who else might show an interest.

Wolves will be a tough game? Not seeing it to be honest, Wolves are in a mess off the back of an awful season.

Before he got injured against Wolves, he was carrying the team, people have short memories. Since then he has been average or poor, apart from that very hot spell last year.

It seems his mentality impacts his performances and for whatever reason he is all over the place. I have defended him continually on here but I would be happy to see him leave, we cannot wait forever for consistency.

What has changed in the last few years? None of us know, but from the outside, the bling has arrived, the tattoos and the flashy cars, his relationship with his fiance ended, I do worry that the trappings of fame have impacted him. But what do I know?

Shappy, sometimes you just may not be right. Maguire is not a great player, but I don't think he is average or terrible. He has had some great games and he has had some poor games.

I would rather we hadn't signed him but as has been shown in this thread, there have been far worse signings than Maguire.

He just has fat too much to say about pretty much everything. I also wish he would stop saying 'at this moment in time', when 'now' would do.

I don't see how Maguire fits that category. I'm not saying he's world class or has been an amazing signing, but to class him as one of our worst signings is unfair.
