Utter disgrace if the rumours are true about giving Lingard and Lindelof extended contracts. Does this club never learn. Probably give them a massive rise too.

Blackpool Red

{Ed047's Note - didn’t they give Smalling and Jones new contracts? so anything’s possible.


1.) 11 Sep 2019 08:02:55
Weren't you all singing Lindelof's praises at the start of the season?

He's a good defender, but with an obvious weakness in his physicality. Similar player to our own Christensen in fact. If you ask me, extending Lindelof would be the right move. And Lingard is a useful squad player I'd say. You need those as well.


2.) 11 Sep 2019 08:26:46
What's wrong with giving Lindelof a new contract? He's everyone's first choice CB alongside Maguire.


3.) 11 Sep 2019 08:42:11
So you'd rather let them run their contracts down and leave for free?

At least with a contract if they leave we will get a fee.

And they are both decent players, internationals and first team players.

{Ed047's Note - and there lies one of your major problems, if they are the way ahead as players capable of winning the big ones then in the words of Turkish, “Your proper f’d” 😉


4.) 11 Sep 2019 09:01:05
Lindelof is a good centre half.

{Ed047's Note - compared to Chris Smalling or Phil Jones?


5.) 11 Sep 2019 10:58:00
Maybe spend another 80 million on Keane, then him and Maguire can be the new chuckle brothers.


6.) 11 Sep 2019 10:58:58
Lindelof was our best player last season. And he's halfway through his contract so yes he's due for contract talks and an extension. He's made a couple of mistakes this season but is miles ahead of the three stooges.

Lingard only signed a new deal something like 18 months ago so shouldn't be being offered another one at this moment in time.


7.) 11 Sep 2019 17:32:53
Fishing surely 🎣🐟👌👏.


8.) 11 Sep 2019 21:16:07
We reward mediocrity.


9.) 12 Sep 2019 10:22:53
Lindleof is a great CB and is still relatively young in his position. Was solid last year and can form a good partnership with Maguire.

Lingard I'm not sold on though. doesn't offer much on the pitch for me. A good back up player but should never be starting games for us.


10.) 12 Sep 2019 13:36:47
All the problems we have and you choose to get annoyed about us giving one of our best defenders a new contract?

Some fans are strange.


11.) 12 Sep 2019 17:59:04
Gds2.This is where the problem lies. Yes he might of been one of our best defenders but that doesn’t say much these days. He’s not physically strong enough in my eyes to be a top drawer centre half in our league. He doesn’t come close to McGrath Bruce Pallister Johnsen Stam Rio or Vidic. i'm not saying he’s a bad player but we need better if we want to close the gap.


12.) 12 Sep 2019 19:35:43
My opinion that has been so since before the Summer is that we needed 2 new CBS. Maguire is great and Lindelof is a good defender but he isn’t strong enough in the air. I think it’s time we have Tuanzebe a chance.


13.) 13 Sep 2019 10:35:42
"Maguire is great" Giggsy? What is he great at? Not defending that I am sure. What is he great at other than heading a ball. Lindelof is a better player overall in my view. Maguire is decent but he isn't half the player media is making him out to be


But it all personal opinion though and judging by my track record I am likely in the wrong.


14.) 13 Sep 2019 19:56:33
Deependra I completely agree with you.


15.) 14 Sep 2019 08:54:48
Lindelof and Maguire are both better than we had and need time to form a partnership and need a settled choice of fullbacks alongside them. Are their better out there - probably - but give these guys a chance. Our priority transfer area is midfield now anyway, not defence.

What do people think of the latest rumour of a de light pig a swap deal. The only problem is Riola again. Not sure on this one.

Blackpool Red

{Ed047's Note - you’ve gotta love auto-correct! 🤣😉


1.) 01 Apr 2020 08:53:07
I think it's a great idea. Who wouldn't want a de light pig? What do you have to give in return?


2.) 01 Apr 2020 08:58:07
I would have one clear worry about a de ligt, maguire partnership. Both of them lack pace and if ole wants to actually play a style which is more on the front foot, at least one of the defenders needs to have some recovery pace.


3.) 01 Apr 2020 11:41:50
I don't think De light is even good enough for now for Epl. He has struggled playing along side good defenders at Juventus, i can't see how it could work for him alongside either of utd Cb.


 

 

17 Mar 2020 18:21:00
Disgusting statement from UEFA. Mentioning about how much of a loss it is for them fianancially. Possibly millions of people could lose their livelihoods but don't worry it might cost a greedy corporation a few quid. Uefa and FIFA are a joke.

The slowest midfield in world football.

Blackpool Red

1.) 22 Sep 2019 15:04:15
We haven't got a midfield.


Its the same every game we can have the ball as much as we want but we don't have the keys to open the locks

And we have a striker who will not score goals.

We can all bang on about having a better defence but we will not score the goals to win games.


2.) 22 Sep 2019 15:25:12
Magic is so slow he is going backwards.


He may as well not be on the field.


3.) 22 Sep 2019 15:51:03
We have no devine right to have a Quick midfield players. Lol.


4.) 22 Sep 2019 15:58:26
The worst midfield and forward line in my 45 years on this planet. We’ve spent nearly 900 million since 2013.We need another 900 it’s embarrassing and nothing will change until wooden top and the leeches are gone.

{Ed047's Note - honestly can’t believe how bad you are mate.


5.) 22 Sep 2019 16:02:49
We are that slow, that we make sloths look fast.


6.) 22 Sep 2019 16:28:21
We are still 6 or 7 players needed and that's just for a top 4 challenge.


Wouod much rather play Chong and gomes and the likes of them then sit through a season with matic and mata and fred it's just depressing


We don't look like scoring at all. We can't break teams down we are rubbish.


7.) 22 Sep 2019 16:52:04
gomes and chong are just as rubbish they didn't show much passion against Astana.


8.) 22 Sep 2019 17:04:13
the snails get round my garden guicker. more happens at a old folks home.


9.) 22 Sep 2019 17:05:12
BOLGER let's face it, we don't have a squad to compete for nothing this year.
Our squad is poor. We would not win the the League 1 either, not even top 4.
We are average and the Kids we hope to save us are poor as well.


10.) 22 Sep 2019 17:11:49
Just back from the match. We need one top striker and two top midfielders. Matic and Mctominay are never going to cut it. Neither is Pereira.
AWB never really tried to attack so maybe he is still not fully fit.

Daniel James tried really hard but needs to pick his head up and look for the killer pass. Rashford ran around but with no support up front and no real service from midfield he had a difficult afternoon. He will come good again with decent service.

Angel Gomez is too lightweight at the moment and too inexperienced to come in and be anything more than a bit part player. He had all the talent to succeed but needs to be introduced into a better team than this and he needs to get stronger to cope.

What was really disappointing was how many passes went nowhere or out of play. That's just rank bad carelessness. I can't recall who said it but every top footballer should learn to treasure possession and never give the ball away cheaply.

Lastly tactically to am afraid Ole got it wrong again. With only one striker it was imperative to have fast runners from midfield who could assist Rashford. Picking Matic and Mctominay seemed to me to be essentially saying h was settling for a draw or not get beaten. I love Mata as a person but he was not the right choice today. We are Manchester United and our mantra has always been to attack. To have a go. Ole didn't give the team much of a chmce today.

{Ed047's Note - you honestly think you only need 3 players. Wow.


11.) 22 Sep 2019 17:39:00
Forget United Ed047, Arsenal are playing. who are just as bad as United.

{Ed047's Note - yes mate, they are going to bill next Monday’s game as “Clash of the Shite-tans” 😂


12.) 22 Sep 2019 17:45:04
We give new improved contracts to bang average players. I honestly don’t think Rashford is even premier league standard. We had four strikers in 99 Cole Yorke Sheringham and Solskjaer. We don’t have one now. The whole squad is piss poor, bottom half premier league and championship players at best.


13.) 22 Sep 2019 17:47:46
McTominay was man of the match last week against Leicester, he has a bad game today and he’s suddenly not good enough and never going to cut it. Surely we can do better than judging players on a game by game basis.


14.) 22 Sep 2019 17:48:46
Ed if we can get Luke Shaw back then our defence will be pretty good. The fact we are conceding goals is because of the midfield offering scant protection. The problem areas are midfield and attack. If and I know its a big if. If we keep Pogba and get a top creative midfielder and a top defensive midfielder then midfield is sorted. Then get a top striker and yes I think we will have gone a long way to solving our problems. If Greenwood is coached properly he is going to be immense. James likewise. Once we start winning games consistently the confidence that brings to the team will enable talented squad players like Gomez to gradually commit me to terms with playing for us.

Ole played with some of our greatest ever players. He is an intelligent man. He will know better than anyone how far off we are from the teams he played in. He knows we have to rebuild. The major problem is getting the players we need. The very best right now have better teams to go to and who can pay equally stupid amounts of money as us and offer realistic chances of winning things.

{Ed047's Note - pretty good isn’t good enough though mate, I would honestly only have AWB from your squad and we are garbage, mostly due to the hapless Emery I might add.

There really isn’t much at all in your squad to shout about mate. As poor as I’ve ever seen it.


15.) 22 Sep 2019 17:56:13
Mctominay is a squad player at best. He ain’t fit to lace Fletchers Parks or Carricks boots never mind the other great central midfielders we’ve had. If anybody thinks he’s going to take Utd back to the top then there deluded.


16.) 22 Sep 2019 18:01:23
I agree Ed. Its the worst squad i’ve ever seen in my 45 years.

{Ed047's Note - I don’t say it lightly BR or because Arsenal are my team so I’m not even gloating as we are shocking at the moment but it really is as bad as I’ve seen.


17.) 22 Sep 2019 18:09:58
Maybe if we were relegated the Glazers would sell up. i'd take that in a heart beat and start again.


18.) 22 Sep 2019 18:10:57
There first goal the defence backed off let him turn and shoot

Appaling defending.


19.) 22 Sep 2019 18:28:03
To be fair to the Glazers they have let several managers spend an awful lot of money. Its just not been spent wisely in the main. The Glazers are guilty of not getting football man in place of Ed Woodward to oversee the playing structure. I don't want the Glazers to go if it means Utd are backed with Chinese or Arab money or anyone or any company with questionable morals. We should be above that.

In response to those who say it's not fair to judge players on a game by game basis. that's true to a certain extent but the sad reality is that too many of our team are not and never will be good enough of we aspire to the standards we used to have. I don't denigrate those players who put a shift in week on week out but facts are facts. We are moles away from where we need to be. That said I don't think we need a whole new team or anything like it. Three or four top top players will make a mojor difference. Regardless I will support the team.


20.) 22 Sep 2019 18:32:01
Blackpool,

Let me guess this right, you want the club relegated?


21.) 22 Sep 2019 18:43:32
Salford, when you say moles away, that doesn't sound too bad 😁.

{Ed047's Note - they’re little cuties aren’t they 😉😂


22.) 22 Sep 2019 18:48:43
Gds2.I want the Glazers gone end of.

05 Sep 2019 06:20:24
Was having a convo with an old mate and we got on to who was utd's worst ever player. Very hard as there are plenty of candidates. I came up with Manucho, Dong Fangzhuo and Scott Mcgarvey but one player I really disliked was Mal Donaghy. His puck was Pat McGibbon.

Blackpool Red

1.) 05 Sep 2019 09:02:41
Lingard, lindeloff, Pereira and Ralph Milne!
You can add Paul “I give the ball away 40 times a game” Pogba and Marcus “I can’t shoot and only get 10 goals a session” Rashford to that if they do not improve dramatically.


2.) 05 Sep 2019 09:06:47
Paddy Roche for me. As a kid whenever Alex Stepney was injured in came Paddy Roche, terrible keeper.


3.) 05 Sep 2019 09:45:49
massimo taibi.


4.) 05 Sep 2019 09:53:12
About a week ago I posted on the Discussion page what a collection of IMO the worst players that have actually played for Utd's 1st team will look like
Taibi
D. Love Prunier Rojo Buttner
Obertan Kleberson Djemba Tosic
Dong Manucho

Subs: Bosnic, Blackett, Pugh, Bellion, Cruyf, Bebe.


5.) 05 Sep 2019 13:34:40
Bebe?


6.) 05 Sep 2019 14:01:36
Somebody actually suggested Rashford and pogba? And Lindelof? Lost for words at some of the posts on here sometimes.


7.) 05 Sep 2019 17:12:07
Paddy Roche. There is a blast from the past. A candidate for sure😂😂.


8.) 05 Sep 2019 20:27:19
Yes Paddy Roche, remember him well and I think he literally threw the ball in the back of the net once. Prunier was up there and Ralphie Milne. I also remember Birtles arriving and he was awful.


9.) 05 Sep 2019 20:28:12
Gds2,

Is was joke post with all the names I mentioned apart from Ralph Milne. Now I will not get the fishing rod out and claim I caught you, as that joke is not funny, however it’s safe to say none of the names mentioned will be troubling a United all time 11.


10.) 05 Sep 2019 21:28:54
Paddy Roche absolutely. He couldn't actually catch a ball cleanly. Ashley Grimes was pretty dire as well. Bellion deserves a mention.


11.) 05 Sep 2019 23:49:04
Chorlton,

If it was a joke then fair enough, but if you read some of the posts on here you can see why I might have thought it was genuine!


12.) 06 Sep 2019 08:27:58
GDS2 fair point!

With Lindelof though I don’t get the whole love affair with him. I think he is very average. Poor in the air and gets beaten easily and can’t tackle. His positioning is usually pretty good which does help him but when he gets that wrong he’s not a great defender one on one, as we have 2 or 3 times already this season.


13.) 06 Sep 2019 19:49:11
Hay bristles birtles was the sanchez signing of his era.


 

 

15 Jul 2019 21:25:10
So ole says we need a Bryan Robson. If only, there is no midfielder out there fit to lace captain marvels boots. Best midfielder I've seen at old trafford.

Blackpool Red

1.) 15 Jul 2019 22:13:02
I am sure everyone on here who had a pleasure of watching him will agree with you blackpool red.

But i think because midfield roles are much more defined in modern football, looking for a bryan robson or a roy keane is a red herring.

Who is the all action bryan robson type in the city team or the liverpool team or in Barcelona or reals team?

We would probably be much better off trying to be realistic and find the new michael carrick, someone mobile and intelligent enough to screen the back 4 and sit deep and dictate play than look for a new bryan robson.


2.) 15 Jul 2019 22:17:49
I took a close look at Jamie Shackleton at Leeds. Now I'm not a scout by any stretch of the imagination. But I know a player that gives 100% every second of every game when I see one. I hope somebody in red has/ is running the rule over him. If you're watching the Leeds game have a look I'd be interested in your opinion. 👍.


3.) 15 Jul 2019 22:54:10
Living the past. Sentimental. Sack him now.


4.) 15 Jul 2019 23:50:20
My favourite ever player for the club.
There is still room in any formation for that box to box player. Although as you say the role has changed and more technique than blood sweat and tears.
That screening player you speak of. The goal scoring box to box midfielder and the veey offence minded playmaker are the ideal combination.

Longstaff / matic
Fernandes / mctom
Pogba/ fred

If pogba wants to stay and let his football do the talking i'd be delighted if they were our options going into next season. Tough to get both those deals plus maguire over the line. Plus deal with the possible exits of lukaku darmian rojo.
Lots of work still to do on the squad but that midfield 6 plus garner should see us through the season in better shape than last season.


5.) 16 Jul 2019 07:00:28
Robson was the reason I chose to support United when I was very young.


6.) 16 Jul 2019 09:41:44
very good piece on sky about longstaff. Well worth a read, you can see why solskjaer would want him. Not comparing him to Bryan Robson, but he might be worth the money if he keeps going the way he is.


7.) 16 Jul 2019 11:10:40
Agreed penfold. if we get longstaff, a midfield of him and mctominay will have a lot of heart and effort. need a spark of creativity (pogba / fernandes ) with them and we have the makings of a solid midfield.

{Ed002's Note - Longstaff's heart is in the NE.}


8.) 16 Jul 2019 11:11:24
I agree Penfold. We should go for him no question.


9.) 16 Jul 2019 11:31:26
But his bank account might be in the northwest soon ed 😂.


10.) 16 Jul 2019 11:47:59
do you think he’d stay in newcastle regardless Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - No, what I said was in reply to a rather flakey comment.}


11.) 16 Jul 2019 15:04:15
Truth be told by team would be improved by having a midfielder like Bryan Robson.


12.) 16 Jul 2019 17:59:09
** any.

For me Juve have only been bigger than Utd in the mid 80’s. At this moment only just. Yes they’re romping there league every year but come on it’s a Mickey Mouse league. With one of our worst sides in the last 30 years we turned them over at their place.
