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.

Not much point of going on about the result or the performance, we all know it was unacceptable.
But my worry is the amount of injuries we're picking up. This happens every year and it can't be pure bad luck. City and liverpool are playing a very high press, high tempo game and they don't seem to pick up anywhere near the amount of injuries we have.
Is this the fault of training and physical conditioning staff? Is it the fault of our facilities? Is it the fault of our scouting in not picking up players who have injury problems?
It is hard to see that we have so many players with continuous injury issues, Shaw, Jones, Rojo, Martial, Dalot, Bailly, Sanchez, Pogba.
Can the club be doing a lot more to ensure the players stay fit and don't suffer these injuries so often.

In Klopps first season we picked up loads of injuries bud. Takes a lot to condition players to that high intensity game and you don't have the squad to cope with it I'm afraid.


2.) 23 Sep 2019 01:50:20
Liverpool and City both pick up their fair share of injuries. The difference is they have the squad depth to cope with it. Look at City’s defense at the moment as a prime example of this.

OGS interested in Dier, that deserves instant dismissal. He can't be serious.

Dier is a decent footballer and people were raving about him when we were linked last summer.


3.) 08 Jun 2019 00:34:05
He is one dimensional and has mobility of a tank.


4.) 08 Jun 2019 07:44:02
Tanks were designed to traverse the roughest of terrains. Depending on the situation, they are more mobile than most.

Morning to all posters and Eds. Not posted for a long time as i didn't want to upset posters or Eds. But here's my two pennies worth on the current situation and my wish for the future of the club.
Current situation is that we have a goalkeeper who seems to have lost concentration with all the contract talks and his annual wish to move away. Best shot stopper around, but lacks command, does not communicate, does not come out fir crosses, and pretty poor at distribution. I'll say thank you David and cash in on him.
The rest of the players, Rojo, Bailly, Jones, Sanchez, are always injured and have to go.
Young, Matic, Pereira, Fred are just not good enough, they'll have to be let go.
Brings us to Pogba and Martial, all the talent in the world but no application and generally can't be bothered attitude is an insult to the shirt and to the fans. Pogba in particular, has no future at United.
The future. Out of all the clubs i Europe, the club that has traditions similar to United for bringing on young players and trusting them is Ajax. They have a superb academy, they give youth a chance, and they play football in the right way. In addition, they have one of our own legends doing a fantastic job as DOF, Edwin van der Sar. The man is a legend, loves our club and is highly intelligent and clued on. If i had my wish, most of our transfer activity will be done with the present Ajax players.
De Ligt is simply the best defender around and at 19 is captaining the Ajax side. Veltman at right back, shackled Ronaldo completely, tough, no nonsense player with an excellent engine on him, and a good cross. Then we have de Beek and Schonė in midfield. De Beek is extremely cultured and can connect defence to attack, while Schonė is like a terrier and that's a quality we don't have in the cutrent team.
If we can add a right winger to the above four players and trust Mctominay as a defensive midfielder or even bring in Rice. Then the above additions will make a massive difference in the rebuild.
We have to get rid of the players who don't want to be here and the ones who are not good enough, and replace them with the Ajax nucleus i mentioned as they are used to playing with each other, plus a couple of the other additions and we will be on the right track.
I realize it is not a simple process, transfers are notoriously difficult to conduct in certain occasions, but we have to try. De Ligt at CB is a must to start rebuilding the core of the team. I hope the club goes in that direction.
Apologies for long post and stupid views!

1.) 25 Apr 2019 12:08:35
Nice to see you back AAA. Hope you are well mate.


2.) 25 Apr 2019 13:14:39
Having watched McTominay really closely for Scotland and Utd I think we are misusing him as a DM. His height and physicality seem to mean he is shoehorned into replace Matic. However, the big man has quick feet and a real desire to get into the box. I think he is a more traditional CM who can go forwards and backwards. Certainly a lot more like a more attacking Darren Fletcher than the sort of strict Matic-esque figure some want him to be.


3.) 25 Apr 2019 16:41:04
Hi Park, many thanks, i read the site every day and enjoy all the comments. Shame that we're not linked with any of the Ajax players as Ed002 has pointed out. De Ligt is a much better defender than Koulibaly, he's only 19 and is Captain material. Anyway, it's a shame that we're not going down that route as it seems we'll be getting Mike Phelan as Sporting Director, a man that never inspired while playing or being Fergie right hand man.
Hopefully, we'll not be spending shedloads on overrated 29yr old players with no future.
I hope Solskjaer has the bottle to get rid of the players who are disrupting the club, and hope the owners actually learn from past mistakes. But reading what Ed002 said, I'm not holding my breath.
Carry on posting guys, it's what makes this site so enjoyable to read in good and not so good times.


4.) 25 Apr 2019 16:44:07
SO72, he's a very good talent, and age and experience will show us where he'll be best suited. But i would much rather he played where Matic plays than Matic! I also don't think that a defensive midfielder should just stay in one place, it's up to the rest of the midfield to cover if the defensive midfielder sees a gap to attack.


5.) 25 Apr 2019 19:54:32
AAA

Good to hear from you again. Phelan would be a desperate choice as Director of anything. Actually was Phelan’s most inspiring act not popping the balloon on the bench that made SAF jump?


 

 

15 Sep 2018 07:35:59
I know some on here don't rate him as he hasn't got the silky skills of Ronaldo or the genius of Cantona, but Lukaku is emerging as a mature person. I fully agree with his comments about some of our players being mentally weak. It is a problem we have since the keane, vidic, Rio days, where literally, every player we had could have been captain of our team.
I look at the present side and I'm hard pushed to find more than three players who could possibly be captain material. The rest are soft and lack the maturity and intensity to bring back the good times to oyr club.
If we're looking for a captain who seems to demand more and will lead by example and actually speak English in the process, then Lukaku or Hererra are the only two strong characters we have.

Definitely shows when our backs are against the wall, there’s no one to gear up the team, throw a few f@€%s about! Can you imagine Keane putting up with Martial sulks or pogba’s strolling!


2.) 15 Sep 2018 09:42:12
We used to have a team of captains yet now we struggle to identify leaders. As had been said so many times it’s not just about the best 11 players, it’s how they gel, the mix, how they battle for each other. We are crying out for a leader as I don’t see one.


3.) 15 Sep 2018 16:06:26
Its a shame the choice of captain has gone to Valencia. I have nothing against him, but he doesn't speak English, and he seems a very quiet and shy character. Players are not going to follow his lead.
He's a follower not a leader. So it makes me wonder what the thinking was behind appointing him as captain.


4.) 15 Sep 2018 17:43:10
AAA, are you seriously wondering why Jose picked a follower and not a leader for his captain?


5.) 16 Sep 2018 07:12:51
Make Pogba club captain. Job done 😆😆.

I think Mourinho has changed his strategy. Not on the pitch necessarily, but off it. It's interesting as he's decided the best way to fight against Woodward is to get in line with the fans. This will strengthen his position within the club. I noticed recently that the fans have been chanting his name and I'm hoping he's building a good relationship with them. This could only be an improvement on what has been going on previously.

Attack Attack Attack

1.) 05 Sep 2018 02:41:21
Bit of a shame that its taken him two years and his back fully being against the wall for him to realise that engaging with the fans could help with his popularity.

He spent his first two years rarely acknowledging the away fans and occasionally criticising the home fans for a lack of atmosphere.


2.) 05 Sep 2018 07:24:47
Fully agree DSG. I've been saying that he's not the most clever man dealing with the press, woodward, the players or the fans. But i think someone has advised him on this.
He'll be doing it to further his cause re transfers. But mostly, he'll be thinking of his reputation.
Whichever it is, i would rather have him onboard with the fans than not.


3.) 05 Sep 2018 08:55:42
I'd like it to have been a natural thing. At the minute it's like he has taken the mick for years as he walks around the local boozer saying what he wants and doing what he wants to anybody, then a group of outsider bikers walk in and are about to give him the kicking he deserves, so he then runs over to us and asks us to protect him as 'it's our pub and we should all stick together'!

He's a user, this switch is temporary whilst he needs us - a few wins or easing of tensions and he will revert to type - a leopard like Jose doesn't change their spots this late in their career. Once the media have something else to focus on, he'll get back to being who he really is.

That said, it looked a bit better on Sunday, fingers crossed the media hounding continues as I enjoyed one of our games for the first time in a long time.


4.) 05 Sep 2018 11:41:41
Are we really saying that Jose has a lack of intelligence when dealing witht he press, woodward, players and fans?

Im not for one minute condoning his actions but its absolutely nothing to do with him 'not being the most clever'


5.) 05 Sep 2018 11:57:49
Beast it is possible that you are right. But another possibility is that he has been under immense pressure, this is one of the most important years of his career and the team didn't start well. He was sacked from his last job, and hasn't proven much in his present. The style of football specially at the bigger clubs ( job opportunities for Jose ) has changed a lot and they will think twice before appointing him with all his media circus and outdated style of play. So it's a make or break season for him, such is the pressure. And then our team goes and loses to Spurs 3-0. At that point he's expecting the worst but he sees fans actually singing his name. Maybe that changed something. He obviously has his critiques amongst the fans but still while on the pitch these fans have supported whoever the manager has been. I just hope he doesn't get into all this media crap and focuses on he team and players.


6.) 05 Sep 2018 12:35:19
I hope you are right Sailor. I totally agree he has never been under so much pressure, but this guy has a habit of biting the hand that feeds him. The fans chanting his name and supporting him on websites like this are really helpful to him at the moment without a doubt.

I think people earn support, some of our fans think becoming manager of the club automatically means they deserve unquestioning support. Each to their own and it's what makes this website so much fun to be on at times.

I also hope he finally learns to focus on what really matters and being in a tough spot means he should work hard to solve the problems, not obscure the issues or divert it away from what needs to be done. All of this is of his own making and from an outside perspective very easy to solve.

Shut your mouth, pick players in form, focus on attacking teams and help those players struggling (not throw them under the bus) - if more of the fans treated Jose how he has treated some of the players he wouldn't be in a job. Burnley could be massive, just hope we take the game to Watford and live up to our potential.


7.) 05 Sep 2018 13:37:54
Beast, you're asking a mam who has won trophies at every club he's been at. He wasn't fast tracked to the top, he started as a translator. He's earned his ticket to the top dance and for people to ask him to change everything he's done to get him here is naive.


I know as a united fan we expect attacking football, flying wingers, almost beating opponents into submission but would you look at this team and try and play "you have a shot, we have a shot"? . I certainly wouldn't. We're so wasteful in front of goal at times and that back 4 can be got at if the team isn't set up right.

Jose has wasted a fair amount of money on short term fixes and I can understand the club wary of loading the team with 29 year olds, but the man needs to be supported in the transfer window. People can throw out the £400 million we've spent in the last few years but that's the going rate.

I think everyone associated with the club is fumbling the ball at the minute. Jose definitely is at times with his hostile approach to certain players and bizarre demeanour. Woodward hasn't backed him the way a he should be backed if we have aspirations of winning the league. The players have been hit and miss and struggle to find consistency and a large portion of the fans have ramped up the pressure on the team and the Spurs game was evident of this. They have a right to by the way.

The problem is when things don't go to plan, everyone reverts to their default mode and Jose''s one isn't particularly nice or helpful at time's but that's what's got him where he is.

This isn't meant as a dig to you Beast but your default mode is one of pessimism. You could fine fault in anything and that's not necessarily a bad thing. You want the best, I want the best, we all do. But I know when I see a positive Beast post, it's refreshing but I know the regular Beast is lurking in the corner ready to come out to play when the rubbish hits the fan. My laboured point being, let Jose Jose and just enjoy the ride. He might change for a while but it won't last. He'll do a Jose and win us the league, or he'll do a Jose and go out with a big pay off in November.

I think the positivity of the fans really is a huge factor in our title aspirations. I just hope everyone can get behind the squad because it could be just want we need for the manager and the players to find that extra spark to really kick on. There's a world class manager in there and there is potentially a team that can beat any one their day.

What's the worst that can happen?


8.) 05 Sep 2018 14:43:25
Mumbles that is a very goos post.


9.) 05 Sep 2018 15:12:58
Yes that is a good post Mumbles.

I suppose all I can say is that my general mood reflects the performance levels of the club compared to my expectations. There have been many instances over recent years where I have supported things that the masses have criticised (Luke Shaw in particular) - but generally I agree I am far more critical as I aim for perfection (or at least working towards it) .

We have had several years of severe underpeformance (from my perspective) .

One more thing - Jose has had an exceptional career, but I don't think he fits the club and I don't like how he sets the team up. Nowadays it is too easy to play against. Managers lose their edge, the evidence suggests he lost his some time ago. So whilst I concur that we should all get behind the manager and team during difficult times especially, it would be helpful if the manager throws us a bone or two - it seems to be a one way street!


10.) 05 Sep 2018 15:35:58
Good post Mumbles.


11.) 05 Sep 2018 21:32:55
Great Post Mumbles but the football is still boring. That's why Jose has to go.


12.) 05 Sep 2018 22:53:37

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.

I've supported ferarri all my life. Vettel is done. They need to get Lewis in there as secretly, he wants to drive for the most iconic name in F1. But it'll be difficult to tempt him.
Ferrari always do well when the management are non Italian, they need to recruit from outside. Their strategy is shocking and they need someone who knows what he's doing.
Sounds very similar to what's happening at United.

It's not ogs I'm worried about, it's whether he'll be allowed to buy the players we need. It's not been the case in recent times as the manager's judgement has not been backed. Instead, we've had some Hollywood type purchases which have been disastrous. Whether Ogs is given time, is another thing.

KG, I think lingard is the most overrated player in the league. He runs around like a headless chicken. Creates nothing. His assist record is one of the worst in the league. He hasn't scored in 15 games. What is it about him you find good? I think Gomes will be ten times better, and should be given the chance. Lingard will not improve City, liverpool, arsenal, Chelsea or spurs. i'm not sure he'll improve Leicester even, which says it all.
