Lots of rumours around that Pogba wants £600,000 pw to stay!
I say he is taking the p*ss at his current salary. If that is the price we should not even try to keep him.
How much will he want next year!?


1.) 29 Sep 2019 13:58:32
He's pricing himself out of a new deal in order to force his way out of the club.
He wins either way, he either gets the move he wants or he gets paid more than three times what he's worth.

2.) 29 Sep 2019 14:54:13
Pogba wants out? What?

Surely we have to try and keep a player who doesn't want to be here.

At least it doesn't reflect in his performances 🙄🙄.

3.) 29 Sep 2019 15:34:11
The guy wants to leave, he wanted to leave two summers ago and he wanted to leave this summer just gone.

If the club are foolish enough to get into contract talks with him and his representatives then they are well within their right to pull the clubs pants down with exorbitant requests.

Let him see out this season as he's our only midfield player who can pass a football and then replace him next summer with other professional footballers who can pass a football.

4.) 29 Sep 2019 18:57:57
Who cares what he's paid. What matters most to me is that if he does stay then he should perform.

I would just get rid of him at the earliest possible time and get a really hard working/ super talented player like SMS or Niguez to replace him.

5.) 30 Sep 2019 00:51:00
Although I kind of agree. what makes you think SMS or Saul would want to come to United in this current state?
We used to be the number one choice for players coming to the PL. at this moment in time I’m not even sure we’re even in the top 5.

6.) 30 Sep 2019 05:37:11
Yeah replace Pogba with Saul Niguez.
It would immediately step up the quality of midfield.

If we can convince a player about a good project, they will probably join. However, we may have to offer higher wages to beat competition.

7.) 30 Sep 2019 11:58:40
I'd happily give Pogba a 600k a week contact.

100k basic with 500k performance related. Instantly solves his issues with consistency.

8.) 30 Sep 2019 13:23:35
Lol shappy that'd work! The way money has gone and the guarantees that players have before even setting foot on a pitch, restructuring deals like that would solve a lot of on field issues.

9.) 30 Sep 2019 13:49:38
Saul Niguez going to leave Atletico for Man Utd? is this some April fools prank or something.

Their lies a big problem with Man Utd fans, the delusion is really real.

10.) 30 Sep 2019 15:58:45
£5000 a week and you can have my 15 year old son. He has 3 goals and 4 assists in 2 games. He plays ACM and has an eye for goal and trys his hardest every game.

11.) 01 Oct 2019 23:00:58
Pogba is a really good player and if he had half decent midfielders and attackers with him we would get more out of him. I don't think his attitude is anything like it should be but I can imagine his mindset. Why am I wasting the best years of my professional life with a team whose players are just not good enough to be challenging for trophies when I could be with a really top top team. If we had better players and were competing every year to win the league and champions league do you really think he would want out? I don't.

12.) 02 Oct 2019 13:11:07
Pogba knew the clubs situation when he joined, the playing squad isn't dramatically different to the one he joined.

He might have wanted to move to Real Madrid or Barcelona but neither club valued him at the price being quoted.

So he had a choice, he could either stay at Juventus (a team that was winning Serie A every season and challenging in the UCL) or he could move to us, a team that hadn't challenged for the league in a few years and had even failed to qualify for the UCL twice out of the previous 4 seasons.

He chose to join us, no doubt because his agent sold him the move and the huge hike in wages.

He chose money over glory, now he saying he wants to move again to win titles. Yet I suspect he would have second thoughts if moving to Real Madrid, Barcelona or back to Juventus meant a significant drop in wages.

He wants to make as much money as he can, and fair play to him. But if that is his main motivation then he won't ever fulfil the potential he has.

Ronaldo earns huge wages, but he isn't driven by earning money. He wants to be the best and he wants to be remembered as one of the greatest of all time. He has maximised his talent. We need players who have the mentality that they want to be the best they can be, not earn the most they can.

13.) 02 Oct 2019 19:45:30
Shappy I agree with you about Pogba not maximising his potential but maybe he was promised that Utd would invest in top players and that's just not happened. It's odds on he will go to a Madrid or Juve sooner rather than later and he will get wages equal to or better than he is getting at Utd.

14.) 07 Oct 2019 14:09:52
Whether United invest in top players or not, if he was a top player with a good attitude he'd still put in a performance every week and show some leadership to the players around him , and maybe also tell his brother to shut up .



14 Aug 2019 13:23:39
Seen a few reports that Rojo's agent is at the training ground trying to arrange some sort of deal.
Also that Ole is possibly going to relegate Sanchez to the Reserves. Also reports that Ole really wants him gone from any influence on younger players even it means him going out on loan (Roma still interested) with us paying part of wages. Not ideal, but personally I think the time has come.
This may may well be a load of mushroom compost, but I thought I.


1.) 14 Aug 2019 14:33:11
Hopefully this is true. We need to get them gone.

2.) 14 Aug 2019 15:21:55
Are the reports of Sanchez and Greenwood falling out true?

3.) 14 Aug 2019 15:45:27
Rumours that Sanchez got into a fight with Greenwood at training, that clearly is not going to help him at all. I really want him out of the club, caused a lot of troubles and didn't give anything in return to the club.

4.) 14 Aug 2019 16:02:26
I saw reports that Sanchez got angry with Greenwood because he challenged him in training. If so, that's not the attitude you want to help breed confidence in the youth.

5.) 14 Aug 2019 17:06:03
I hope it is true as it sends a message through the squad. The rumour is we are offering to pay some of his wages but still nobody wants him, even on loan.

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

6.) 14 Aug 2019 17:34:29
I want him as far away from the club as possible, he is done and dusted, has offered nothing so far, how the heck did the club get into this situation idk, some people here don't think Ole has what it takes to make it but if he gets rid of Rojo, Sanchez and have us playing very entertaining footy, he may well be the one who takes us back to challening, early days but i do like how he is setting the team to play and our average age, that's very important most of these players will flourish in 2,3 years.

7.) 14 Aug 2019 21:32:20
Sanchez has the ability to be great, maybe just give him the number 10 role, I think he could pick the holes we need against clubs.

8.) 14 Aug 2019 22:39:06
Report from the sun so it's most likely not true at all.



02 Aug 2019 21:17:11
Di Marzio apparently now (last hour) that Dybala deal now agreed apart from image rights and payment plan.
Toes, fingers and eyes crossed!


1.) 02 Aug 2019 21:33:01
"And eyes crossed", made me laugh mate. Maybe it's the beers? Agreed though, Dybala behind Rash or Tony would work very well.

2.) 03 Aug 2019 06:19:10
I haven't felt this since optimistic since 2004 when we signed Rooney, Heinze, Smudge and Pique.
Damn you Manchester United, you have made me get excited about transfers again.

{Ed0333's Note - who have you signed to get all giddy about Grim?

3.) 03 Aug 2019 06:23:31
If we sign Bruno, we can play 4-3-3 with Dybala on the right, buy even if Ole still use 4-2-3-1 Dybala can again play on the right, cutting inside and free AWB.

4.) 03 Aug 2019 06:49:52
No Grim. I was also excited when we signed Herrera Shaw di Maria blind Rojo Falcao in 2014 window. 😁.

5.) 03 Aug 2019 07:17:00
I wish use would all stop being so gullible were not getting Bruno fernandes or Paulo dybala
OLE said he hopes to have 1 or 2 new faces those new faces are Maguire and Mandcuikic and that's it.

6.) 03 Aug 2019 09:06:22
So we've tracked fernandes all summer which has been confirmed by eds were in talks for dybala as reported everywhere but you chose to believe that were getting Mandzukic which has just been reported in the last day which would presumably only happen should lukaku leave. Negative much?

7.) 03 Aug 2019 09:26:51
Scottronaldo73, of course Ole would say that he expects 1-2, he won't say "yeah we are working on exactly 5 new ones". Never take manager's word for granted. I think Bruno was a target, Dybala and Mandzukic were late and unexpected opportunities.

8.) 03 Aug 2019 09:34:06
Exactly manduikic hasn't been mentioned at all now all of a sudden sky are putting forward the charm offensive of " we've always liked him" and would be" a great option " someone from United has leaked this so that when we don't get dybala he's our fall back option if I'm wrong I'll be the first to come on and say I was wrong
The tweet use are all excited about fernandes was from 5 days ago from Nicolo schira a lots happened since then.
I've been a supporter long enough to know when I'm getting the wool, pulled over my eyes.

9.) 03 Aug 2019 09:44:44

You’re funny pal, every post is the same negative rubbish, why not offer a little balance? We’ve signed 3 players so far, all improve positions we need, the other 3 players we are linked with also improve the first 11, hopefully we can get one of them over the line. You’ll be one of them complaining the Glazers don’t spend your money when we spend £200m this summer as well.

10.) 03 Aug 2019 09:47:43
Scottronaldo, you and Jaime should go on a date, you’re made for each other.

11.) 03 Aug 2019 10:17:16
GDS Your right about the 3 signings we have made they improve our first 11 definitely and hopefully the youngsters take their chances when they come to them because I think they could be a special crop I really do. BUT every year we get a player mentioned all summer like a Schneider, gaitan, perisic, and it never happens I think fernandes is this years.
I'm willing to eat a huge slice of humble pie if I'm wrong and no matter what happens or who comes I will still be getting behind the team come 11 August through thick and thin. We deserve a board that's as loyal and dedicated as our fans deserve .
AJH I'm happily married man lol.

12.) 03 Aug 2019 10:32:40
Yeah, I saw the "we've always wanted him" about Mandzukic, but I think they meant that we were looking at him for a couple of years, not just this summer. I think it's normal. And we need to have a heavy striker like him if Lukaku leaves. Enjoy the end of the window as we'll have James, AWB, Maguire, Dybala, Fernandes and Mandzukic
:D Cheers GGMU!

13.) 03 Aug 2019 10:56:21
I don't get this Madzukic talk, he's 33 and only managed 10 goals per season playing for an incredibly dominant Juventus team. Seems like a complete waste of money and I don't see it happening at all.

14.) 03 Aug 2019 11:29:07
Scott, we do get linked with players every year and some seem to slip through our grasp. What we don’t really know is which ones are high priority, how much we want a certain player, or how far apart we are in valuation. I do share the frustration that it seems to take us forever. Perhaps it’s balancing the ins and outs or perhaps were just crap at it.

15.) 03 Aug 2019 11:32:39
Scott, we get linked to everyone by everyone. That's the way it's been since time. You're then upset because we don't sign them?

16.) 03 Aug 2019 18:18:29
Starting to doubt di Marzio, he seems to be covering all bases with his comments.

17.) 03 Aug 2019 18:21:01
Mandzukic is underrated. He fits a high pressing system well. He's not prolific but he offers other attributes. Also he brings experience which we lack but his age won't block Marcus or Mason.



30 Jan 2019 09:33:11
What's news?
We know which players need moving on.
Youngsters make mistakes.
No team wins every match.
Sometimes decisions go against us.
Stuff happens. Let's get over it.
Team still playing united way, sees games out and fights back from difficult circumstances with style.
Back behind Ole for the next game, the future is bright. We are once again seen as the real MU. Others are getting worried. Great to see.


1.) 30 Jan 2019 10:56:29
Good post DW.



03 Jan 2019 14:49:04
League wise we are still underdogs. But we are now playing (not withstanding the well known weak points in our squad) with real united style. Chelsea and Arsenal now looking nervously over their shoulders - it's a good feeling. Get at least a point from spurs and the rest of the season holds really good possibilities. Chalk and cheese compared with only a couple of weeks ago.
However thing pan out we owe OGS a real debt of gratitude and proving that whatever the reasons, our squad is far better quality than Jose allowed them to be.


1.) 03 Jan 2019 17:15:18
We are definitely underdogs for the league, Liverpool have quite the head start on us.

{Ed025's Note - absolute non-hopers rather than underdogs i would say DB, that ship has well sailed im afraid mate..

2.) 03 Jan 2019 23:55:54
Meant underdogs for top 4 not the title!

3.) 04 Jan 2019 02:48:11
16 points?
We’ve run down similar leads before :)
Though not with this squad.

Just wondering after last night.
Carrick under Ole has taken quite a bit of stick not least on here.
Could it be that he is actually quite good but has just not been listened to by "I believe in myself" Ole?


1.) 24 Nov 2021 15:13:04
Ole while "believing" in himself never stuck me as a dictator who would run roughshod over his assistants and coaches.

I remember one of the gripes about Ole on here was that he would talk through every decision with one of his coaches on the sideline before taking action.

Last night we got a good result without playing well. We set up and played like did under Ole. The players maybe gave an extra 10% maybe for that new manager bounce.

Maybe Carrick will become a top manager, maybe he won't. But we learned nothing last night. To be fair in 48 hours there wouldn't have been much time to work on anything new.

2.) 24 Nov 2021 15:17:00
they are all poor none of them are good enough to be taking UNITED forward.

3.) 24 Nov 2021 15:42:30
Shappy, I don't believe that Ole would ride rough shod over anyone but I do believe he is capable of listening to advice, even good advice and ignoring it which He, as ultimate manager was perfectly entitled to do.
I was merely suggesting that Carrick, whilst thoroughly loyal, might not have been agreement with tactics.

4.) 24 Nov 2021 17:21:14
Its quite simple actually. The big players wanted Ole gone. Now that he is gone, they will automatically try that bit harder knowing full well that Carrick isn't the long term option and they now need to play to salvage the season as much as they can. The problem was Ole.



24 Nov 2021 13:57:07

{Ed0666's Note - I gave my wife the best four seconds of her life which included foreplay and a cigarette. Who said romance was dead?

3.) 24 Nov 2021 15:11:55
Here we go again.

4.) 24 Nov 2021 15:30:02
Red Whiskey. I was a little mystified by your post. It was not a campaign for Carrick to be touted as managereven as interim until the end of the season. If we don't get a permanent manager by early December, I want to see Rangnick here.

DLIB - A promising spark of light was seen at the end of a very long and dark tunnel. I know, I know, I am well aware it could be an express train rushing towards us. Also to continue the analogy, you can be on the right track, but if you don't move you will still get run down!

5.) 24 Nov 2021 18:53:03
Let's be realistic. Villareal are a middle of the table team at best. We took our chances they didn't.

When we play Chelsea and Arsenal we will see then where we are. On current form Chelsea should beat us easily and it depends which Arsenal turns up. If they play properly they will likely beat us too.

That said the beauty of football is that on any given day the best team does not always win.



21 Nov 2021 15:36:56
I for one, almost hope we go out of champions league sooner rather than latter. Not because I want to see further humiliation of this great club, but create time and space for gap filler coaches and interim manager space for "squad recovery" and to work. The league is well beyond us this season.
Ultimately the league, and league performance levels are at the core of everything football wise and I would like to see time for this to be done without worrying too much about shiny trophies and CL qualification this year. This should, if time is used wisely put us in a good position to compete on all fronts next season.
I know it won't happen unless there is a football equivalent of the tooth fairy, because the glazers' cash cow takes priority over football but, that is what I hope for.


1.) 21 Nov 2021 15:57:25
Na we now have a chance in a competition. Chelsea sacked lampard and won the champions league, we don’t need to sack a season If we have a class manager.

2.) 21 Nov 2021 15:57:58
Don't think you need to wish too hard DW.

3.) 21 Nov 2021 16:24:04
Leta hope the interim brings his owns coaches otherwise it was pointless sacking ole.

4.) 21 Nov 2021 16:32:15

The longer we stay in the Champions League the better, we still need to show we are an important club competing at that level.

5.) 21 Nov 2021 16:47:07
Why would you want to go out. Always a chance in a cup comp now that ole is gone hopefully our players will be alleles allowed to play a different way with different personell.

6.) 21 Nov 2021 17:10:40
Dear all, I did say that I ALMOST hope.

7.) 21 Nov 2021 17:22:18
Sorry mate I thought it odd.

8.) 21 Nov 2021 17:35:07
No worries Ken?.

9.) 21 Nov 2021 23:54:25
Fairly sure we will get through, even with defeat on Tuesday we are through with a win at home to Young Boys. Things might look very different at the club by February.



14 Nov 2021 14:59:29
VDB wanting out in January. Ole wanting to stay.
Personally I feel VDB is far more important to the club than Ole.

We wait while 'amateurs' bumble along. I have zero faith in them making any 1st class decisions.

We wait: hoping against hope.


1.) 14 Nov 2021 20:24:25
Any half competent manager would have built dvb into our team by now and had us playing much better. The borewegian fraud on the other hand is clueless.



08 Nov 2021 07:49:44
1.Ole is a poor manager. No ifs and buts and I want him gone.
2. Owners and management need to show to some compassion and sack him for his well being and that of his family and that alone would be a big plus for all including the well being of the club.
3. Ole has justifiably taken a lot of stick to which we have nearly all contributed
4.This situation is only resolvable by Upper management.
5. They choose to do nothing. Ergo they and they alone are ultimately culpable.
6. We should vent our ire on them - It is NOT Ole's fault he is still there.


1.) 08 Nov 2021 08:37:19
He can resign surely. that's in his hands if and only if he cares about anything but himself.

2.) 08 Nov 2021 08:37:32
It is Ole's fault he is still here. He is waiting to get fired so that he gets compensated. If he truly loved the club he would offer to resign.

Every day he stays on the job my respect for him as a club legend continues to diminish because even he himself must see that he isn't up to the job.

3.) 08 Nov 2021 09:02:39
I said it months ago mauve a year Ago.
Ole is out for himself. He did bit out the club first like us so he puts his family 1st.
He should be trying to negotiate an exit from the club.
I foresaw a slow and very painful, humiliating and embarrassing demise for ole. I'm delighted i feel he deserves a painful exit based on the med he has made of the job. He has left players and fans frustrated for months and years ago I feel he deserves to share in the pain he has dished out to others.
Won't be long now I reckon. He is a shambles of a manager he will ski back to Norway with millions in the bank and I begrudge him every penny bourbons horrible little man.
But ole will have the last laugh on us all waking away a very rich man rewarded fit 3 years of abject failure.
Ole has let the club the players and the fans down he is a mercenary only out to screw what he can from the owners. He did not want what is best for the club players or fans he only cares about ole and his family. Hard to criticise him for that but let's call it out as that's the truth. He is no different to Jose or di Maria in that regard. Anybody who thinks any different is sadly mistaken imo.

4.) 08 Nov 2021 09:30:56
why would he resign and miss out on a pay day.

he can't believe his luck.

5.) 08 Nov 2021 10:52:23
Unruly. When did you change your mind and for ole to be fired?

6.) 08 Nov 2021 11:14:31
If any of you where being pushed out out of a job and went for informed advice you would get the same standard advice.

Do not walk of your own free will. That only let's your employer have the perfect excuse to say that they didn't give you the sack and leave you with no basis for a claim except messy constructive dismissal.

Ole is trying to honour his contract (very badly, I know) and you can't blame him for staying put. The higher management need to "fess up" and take ownership of the balls up they have made and pay for it and get us all out of this mess.

Are they Mice or Men? The first option is what I go for.

7.) 08 Nov 2021 11:24:11
Maybe Ole just thinks he can turn it around, or maybe he realises he won't get another top job after this. Ultimately why should he walk away? The club backed him with a new deal in the summer and have shown nothing but support for him. While up until now the players seem to have backed him as well. At the end of the day a contract is between two people/ bodies/ organisations. Both parties have responsibilities, it is down to the club to decide if the manager is not meeting their expectations and act accordingly.

Maybe from the inside looking out things don't look as dire as they do from the outside looking in.

I think its difficult to make accurate assumptions on a person's character or motives without knowing the person and having inside knowledge of what is going on.

Maybe Ole is only looking out for himself, it is possible to love the club but value yourself and your family above that.

Would any of us really be prepared to sacrifice ourselves and our families financial futures for our football club?

Would I be surprised if it were true? NO
Do I think it actually happened? Probably not.

Frankly it sounds like one of those stories/ jokes that get so widely spread they eventually are passed on as true. Much like so many transfer and football "news"

I'm happy he'll point us in right direction. I hope he has a big say in shaping the team and sidelining or ousting those who don't fit. He has revolutionised the philosophy of many clubs.
When he has started the team's style evolution and is shunted upstairs, I hope he will sort the higher management out as well!
As for being appointed as a "consultant" I hope this leaves Woodards ongoing consultancy bid dead in the water.
I 'm very happy.
