It breaks my heart to see city are being linked with Isco while we chase another 7ft player like decooure from Watford.

We are linked with Neymer, does that make you happy?


2.) 30 Mar 2018 12:14:37
I’d happily take Decourey. Good player who gives his all. Underrated.


3.) 30 Mar 2018 12:15:40
Because Doucoure plays for Watford doesn’t make him a poor standard of player. Tevez came to us from a loan at West Ham, lukaku from everton. How many times has signing a “world class” player actually worked out for us recently. Eg Di Maria, Falcao, Sanchez and pogba ain’t hit the heights yet.


4.) 30 Mar 2018 12:53:39
Where would they fit Isco in? Or they going to move on the lad they paid 60 mill for who barely plays.


5.) 31 Mar 2018 13:05:38
I think Ndidi at Leicester is other one for us to take a look at.

Isco is great, but if he was all that Madrid would keep the home grown golden boy

We need 2 full backs, a centre half and two central midfielders. Up top we have more than enough.


6.) 03 Apr 2018 13:39:29
Schmid,

So you believe the Isco to city rumours but ignore any rumours linking United to top players, anyone would think you are deliberately choosing to do that to be negative.


7.) 04 Apr 2018 01:59:55
Isco isn't home grown they bought him at a young age of malaga i think it was.

Evening I've not posted in two years but I read all the posts with interest. Like Red Man, Ken and Mumbles, I was perplexed why the club extended Ole's contract.
However, we now find ourselves in a tricky position where there are no standout candidates to take over if Ole was relieved of his duties.
The thing I find unbelievable, is the club hiring phelan (a boring player and worst assistant Fergie had) . Then compounding the felony by appointing Carrick (good player but with zero experience at coaching) .
If Ole is to stay, my personal opinion is the coaches had to change. And I think that is where the club should have made their move. Alas, they seem to think they're doing a good job and are rewarding them with new contracts for achieving mediocrity. And that is the crux of the problem. Until the club moves into the 21st century, hire coaches with modern techniques, high pressing, players with more control, defending as a team not individually, then I'm afraid we're going nowhere.
The problem can be fixed with better coaching, but sadly, the club see it differently.

Welcome back AAA. isn't it the manager who choses his team though. I might be wrong but i Fergie chose his assistants, Moyes brought in Phil Neville and Jose brought Faria. If Ole chose these geniuses then don't think the club/ board have a say in that.


2.) 06 Oct 2021 07:12:52
Great to see you back, still living in Croft? Good point re coaches, right now we have an inexperienced Manager surrounded by inexperienced coaches. I agree we have the players, just need better coaching, tactics and motivation.


3.) 06 Oct 2021 07:17:43
Ole has been given all the resources he needs but simply doesn't know how to use those.

Imagine Sir Alex was backed this way in his final few years - he would certainly have won more trophies and the team would had been a lot better when he left.


4.) 06 Oct 2021 07:26:56
Ole would pick his coaches not the club, so he might be happy with what his got and not want them changed and he probably pushed for there new contracts, and club have to back him.


5.) 06 Oct 2021 07:59:01
AAA good to see you on here.


6.) 06 Oct 2021 08:54:59
Ole really needs someone with the tactical nous like Querioz. However, it’s down to ole to recognise and sort this out and I don’t know if he has considered it.

The only staff change I’ve noticed a difference in is the set pieces, bar the villa goal we have been so much better at defending them.

{Ed002's Note - There is zero chance of Querioz being the Manchester United coach.}


7.) 06 Oct 2021 08:56:08
Imagine if Sir Alex had insisted on being backed like that in his final years instead of doing the Glazers dirty work for them and trotting out the 'no value in the market' guff while bringing a 38 year old out of retirement .


8.) 06 Oct 2021 09:07:53
Morning Tony, Ken and great to see you continuing the banter on this great site along with UA, shappy, mumbles, Dlip and all the other posters. Tony, we've moved to sunny Portugal now, but we've got a very small house in Culcheth for our old age, which is fast approaching.
I fully agree with the views UA and others posted that Ole picks his coaches, but I was hoping with some interference from Fergie (who changed his coaches more than hot cakes, and worked perfectly for him) and senior players like Ronaldo and Bruno to put pressure on the manager to upgrade the coaching staff.
If this is the case and Ole thinks they're doing a great job, then he deserves to be relieved of his duties.
The point I was making is that there aren't any obvious candidates out there to take over, but there are plenty of brilliant coaches who are tactically aware, and if I was Ole, I'll be dropping the sentiment bit and hiring coaches who can change tge brand of football and in turn make it more effective. However, with the announcement of Phelan and possibly Carrick getting new contracts, Ole has just shot himself in the foot.


9.) 06 Oct 2021 09:17:16
Welcome back AAA good to see you again. Two years on and you can still go back to No Midfield!


10.) 06 Oct 2021 09:38:58
AaA I don't think ole wants to change he is probably the most obstinate and arrogant coach we have ever had. With nothing to justify his arrogance except a string of failures.


11.) 06 Oct 2021 09:47:06
Well done mate, Portugal is lovely. I'm in Culcheth too, we really will have to have a beer and chew the fat at some point.


12.) 06 Oct 2021 10:09:30
Really ken ?

You think Ole is more obstinate and arrogant than Van Gaal or Mourinho?


13.) 06 Oct 2021 10:48:41
Conte is the stand out available manager and I would happily take the Ajax coach. At least he would play DVB in his right position and give us a defined attacking style.


14.) 06 Oct 2021 12:12:05
By some distance bilko ole is more arrogant. But they had reason to be and earned their stripes so to surreal this clown hasn't.


15.) 06 Oct 2021 12:25:50
Welcome back AAA.


16.) 06 Oct 2021 14:42:47
Thanks Red Man and Dodgy B
I agree with most re our plight under Ole its disappointing that an attacking player, who played under an aggressive attacking manager in Fergie, chooses to play such defensive football, devoid of ideas.
Coaches make a big difference as we've seen in Steve Mclaren and Carlos Queiros. And they have a negative impact as we've seen in Phelan and Carrick. But Ole and the club don't seem to see this!
Red Man, as you say still NoMidfield!
Tony, beer is on, coming back at Xmas ??.

What a fantastic gesture by Ronaldo to offer all his hotels in Portugal to be turned into coronavirus hospitals during the ongoing pandemic. He's also offered to pay for all the doctors and nurses who work there. This is so important to Portugal as they don't have the resources or the manpower to handle all the cases if and when the spread becomes more prevalent over here.
Like the Italians and the Spanish, a lot of the Portuguese live under the same roof as their mums and dads and that makes it important that the young generation do not pass the virus to the older, more vulnerable generation.
So well done Christiano.

My Mrs. always hated Ronaldo, seeing him as incredibly narcissistic, but this has actually caused her to reevaluate!


2.) 16 Mar 2020 20:04:03
I think a lot of ‘hated’ players do a lot behind the scenes. Beckham and Rooney are 2 examples of players that step up with no fanfare and do their bit, I am sure there are plenty of others.


3.) 16 Mar 2020 20:23:39
Ronaldo has always been a love him or hate him sort of figure. If he has played for your side you probably love him. He does come across as arrogant on the pitch. He also fits the tall, hansome and rich criteria which apparently automatically makes you a toss pot.

Yet, his off field persona seem very different to what many think. He is a dedicated footballer, not drinking or smoking. Working hard training to improve and leading a healthy life style.

He is a dedicated family man, while he does a lot for charity. He also always makes an effort with fans, signing autographs and posing for pictures. He also looks after the mascots well, always having a few words for them and looking after them.

I remember hearing a story about a 6 year old mascot who got stage fright before walking out with Ronaldo. Cristiano knelt down and told the boy he was scared too, and would the boy hold his hand and look after him as they went out. Which instantly made the kid feel 10 feet tall, the boy even asked Ronaldo if he would be okay when it was time for the mascots to leave the field.

As well as being a top player, Ronaldo has grown in to a top man. His parents should be proud.


4.) 17 Mar 2020 01:32:07
This is so nice of him. Well done Ronaldo.


5.) 17 Mar 2020 04:48:19
Is this true? I though the hotels had denied it .
Great gesture if it.

{Ed047's Note - every man and his dog are reporting its false 🤷‍♂️


6.) 17 Mar 2020 11:15:35
Fake news. Even the hotel's dogs are reporting it's false.


7.) 17 Mar 2020 13:25:36
I have 2 questions about this

How are dogs reporting this and who on earth reads and watches what dogs are reporting?

{Ed047's Note - it’s in the “Walkies Weekly” which is mostly written in “Paw” print mate.

In response to my post below, Noucamp stevie or whatever, no I'm not bored but I was questioning the decision making when some events are ongoing while others aren't. Also, tgevfact that our country in adversity, always carried on.
If it makes you feel better, I have actually set up a group over here to deliver food parcels to the old people who have been told to self isolate. So please stop being so critical all the time, its rude and tiresome and totally unwarranted.

Good man, who knows where this will all end? I think it’s dawning on everyone that ‘normal’ things have gone for now and we need to shift our perspective. I think millions will lose their jobs and businesses will fail, I don’t see any way this can be avoided. We all need to step up and look after those that are most vulnerable.


2.) 16 Mar 2020 23:51:54
I'm not going to argue with you Nomid, or AAA, or whatever, but your original post showed a ridiculous lack of perspective. I'm not going to apologise for criticising you for saying a game of football should go ahead to give you something to watch, while people are dying. You have no idea what people on here are going through with regard to this pandemic, and watching a game of football is way down most peoples' priorities.


3.) 17 Mar 2020 00:23:16
now to the bad side. the town i live in is quite small my ex missus went to the local sainsburys today to see the isles stripped bare. mohers looking for nappies and baby formular can not get any becaue of the tossers buying in baulk. but the worst was watching a little old lady having the toilet roll snatched out of her hands and the staff just watching. i hope these idiots in charge get it and die. i actually feel ashamed of were i live.

So out here in Portugal, the authorities have more or less closed everything. People are being told to stay at home. This is fair and sound advise. However, in order to keep people entertained I think the authorities in Europe as a whole (Italy apart) should have allowed the national league games to be played behind closed doors. The world cannot just stop, otherwise the same will happen in a few month's time.
But if our sportsmen are allowed to play football or do other sports all be it behind closed doors, then at least it will give the nation something to watch on tv. Televised sports in the UK is an amazing pastime and has millions of followers, so with care and organisation, I don't see why the games cannot be played behind closed doors and for them all to be televised.

Attack Attack Attack

{Ed004's Note - For a game to go again you need television crews, transport teams, maintenance workers, ball boys etc. All these people would have to be put at risk to keep a few people entertained. Then theres the footballers themselves. Why is it fair to risk their safety? But I think probably the biggest factor is for a game to go ahead you need police and ambulance crews on service. They will be required for the general population. We cant afford to have them sitting idle for hrs. I miss football as much as the next person but I feel like we have seen the end of the football season for the foreseeable}


1.) 15 Mar 2020 14:27:16
It's not ideal, but its what needs to be done. People don't realise the sheer number of people needed to broadcast a game. Plus the strain it puts on the emergency services which isn't really acceptable given the situation. When medical professionals are standing by at a football match people are dying due to there not being enough medical staff/ provisions.

Ed004 is on the money here. Get Netflix and count yourself lucky that you're not one of the vulnerable people who this might prove fatal for.


2.) 15 Mar 2020 14:45:01
i have just seen that players are being tested twice a day for the virus. i find that horrendus when ordinary people with sympoms are not tested and told to stay home and self isolate. it is starting to make me think why pay money to watch these over paid premadonas who are no different than you or i.

{Ed002's Note - No, they are being looked at for the symptoms twice a day. If they exhibit the symptoms then they are more likely to be tested.}


3.) 15 Mar 2020 15:47:22
They work for organisations that have dedicated medical departments. Of course they are going to be checked on for symptoms of a rapidly spreading virus more than someone who doesn't work for an organisation with a dedicated medical department.


4.) 15 Mar 2020 18:41:20
I understand that ed047, but at the same time we have Castleford and St Helens playing in a stadium full to the brim with fans. Cheltenham Vestival with thousands of fans every day, programmes like Ant&Dec with full audiences. So how are the decisions being made?
And now, you have people crammed inside supermarkets and emptying shelves of everything. Idiots.
But in the UK we've always risen to any challenge and made sure everyone's spirits remain high. It happened in the wars where actors, singers, entertainers risked their lives to ensure the lives of others was made better.
Closing the country down is not the answer.

{Ed004's Note - Those other events should have been cancelled as well imo. Not sure what the solution is for the panic buying but measures should be in place there as well. I just cant see any situation where it's fair or possible to have the season ongoing while this catastrophe is ongoing}


5.) 15 Mar 2020 20:31:08
We are in the middle of a global pandemic that is expected to kill a lot more people.

What kind of brain dead morons are going to these events as though its business as usual?

For old people like my mum of 78 catching this disease is like a death sentance. I have told my mother to treat this virus like it is ebola or the plague and act accordingly.

People need to wake up and start taking this seriously NOW!

Going to the bloody races? Give me strength.


6.) 15 Mar 2020 20:32:51
The season is over man, Ligue 1 and Serie A already in talks to cancel season.

I think the fairest thing to do is cancel season and start season the same as this season with everyone keeping same cup places etc.

I know it's unfair on the lower leagues, teams fighting for promotion and lower leagues losing out on money. At times like this the FA needs to take the right course of action.

Cancell full season.

Postpone euro 2020 for a year and hopefully everything has gone for new season to start because its only going to get worse in April and May.

This is an unprecedented situation. There are so many issues arising and the landscape seems to shift hourly.
There is health and economic situations arising that nobody could have had contingency plans for.
There are some tough and worrying times ahead for everybody in the short term.
With the right discipline and practises its possible that the world health and economic fallout is minimised.
Its often said that you can tell a lot about peoples character in times of adversity. Now is the time for all people to up their moral radars. To be more tolerant more caring more vigilant.


9.) 16 Mar 2020 08:03:48
Spot on Ken. If we are careful and work together, hopefully we can limited the damage. The first thing people need to do is stop congregating unnecessarily.


10.) 16 Mar 2020 09:04:52
You're seriously worried about having something to watch on TV, when people are dying?


11.) 16 Mar 2020 09:59:11
I'm in the middle of my self isolation and tbh it's been cathartic, I've read a couple of books got some bits and Bob's done around the house and generally have been very comfortable, my niece (an elderly care nurse) on the other hand has been pretty much working non stop for the last fortnight along with her colleagues, pretty much the same up and down the country so I realise how lucky some of us are.

Football is a sport, an entertainment it isn't important imo in the situation we find ourselves in, I could care less when the season starts up again or if liverpool win a title, its fluff we have much, much bigger fish to fry.


12.) 16 Mar 2020 17:35:14

Why is Solskjaer going on about missing cl qualification will not impact on transfers, it's such a negative statement. He should be geeing up the players, not giving them an excuse to fail. Its pathetic. If that's the standard we're trying to achieve, then we're screwed.

This is a good season for Solskjaer, looks like he has managed to avoid relegation.

It shows a negative mindset, already thinking we won’t qualify.

The longer he stays the worse our position will be.


2.) 17 Feb 2020 15:41:46
It's so pathetic. And now, we have Shaw telling us that the press are harsh and comparing us to Arsenal.
Fred came out recently and said there's an ego problem, and Solskjaer shot him down in flames.
I think all the above show exactly why Solskjaer is so out of his depth. For gods sake, relieve him of his post before avoiding relegation becomes the new standard we aspire to.

Beast, you called it absolutely right. If De Gea hadn't made unbelievable saves, we will be looking at a 2 or 3 nil scoreline. I hate the passionless, clueless displays. I hate the lack of cohesion in the team. This result is not a good result, one goal for Seville and we have to score two. Even if we score first, we will still be extremely nervous.
I would say it is advantage Seville.
But the most ridiculous post i'd the one from 12daysofhemida. "A huge amount of us have got used to success", "We have to be practical we are still in a rebuilding phase", "Short termism and harking back to the good old days do not benefit the club". These are exactly the type of comments that drive me potty. How could you get too used to success? So shall we have a few years of rubbish performances as we don't want to be to used to success? Utter tripe. Then he mentions we are still rebuilding, we have been rebuilding for five years. A good business doesn't allow its performance to deteriorate, then start rebuilding. All the top clubs are in a constant state of rebuilding. Harking back to the old times? History is what defines you, and history is what you learn from and improve. So when you talk about harking back to the old times, you're basically telling us that we might as well throw away our history.
If you allow standards to drop and mediocrity to set in, then we might as well pack our bags and go home. That's not the philosophy of the club I've supported for over 50 years. we were built on attacking entertaining football with all the right values. Unfortunately, we are losing these values.

Ross, glad you've seen the defences in Solskjaer, great player, rubbish manager. However, I disagree fully on Ronaldo, as love_United correctly says, we've been playing like this for two years.
We are lucky to have Ronaldo at our club, he scores goals, we've not signed him to track back
But the manager does not play pressing football and we're seeing the results of that, we concede possession easily and we don't work hard high up the field to reclaim it. He plays counter attacking tactics straight out of the 80's.
And his coaches are as useless as he is. Great players don't automatically become great managers, otherwise, Keane, Robson, Hughes etc would have succeeded, but they didn't.
The club need to move away from the old brigade, get a young coach in like Ten Haag, Marco Rose in and let them define a modern pattern of play and stick to it. Hans Flick would have been the best choice, but he's not an option now.

Pogba is not the problem, the manager, coaches and tactics are the problem. France were losing against Belgium few days ago, a couple of tactical tweaks and a rocket up the players arses, and France were transformed. That's what good managers like Deschamps do, they change the game to their advantage. Solskjaer and the plonkers around him, don't have that capability.

Tony I think Wijnaldum is a decent midfielder, very underrated and will walk into our team any day of the week. Shame he chose a stupid move to PSG.
I think the agents are the biggest culprits. They unsettle the players and arrange transfers as that's the best way for them to make fortunes from their clients.

Guys we went through 26 odd years of up and down football more downs than ups.
Club will make a decision when they see fit. Anyone with any football knowledge can see that the football and coaching is not what it should be. This team should be blowing teams away with the attacking talent we have, but we seem to struggle yo score a goal and we concede ground and possession very easily.
However, until there is a clear replacement for Ole, then what is the club supposed to do if they sack him?
Biggest problem the club have is that our two most hated neighbours, have the two best managers in the world, and anyone we appoint, is not going to be of that standard.
