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.



16 Dec 2018 11:44:55
So Smalling has signed a new contract.
If this is the best the club can do considering the state we are in, the future is indeed bleak.
Another step towards snuffing out the light at the end of the tunnel.


1.) 16 Dec 2018 15:20:29
I hear you DW20 but of the three amigos I would prefer Jones and Rojo to leave before Smalling.

2.) 16 Dec 2018 15:35:04
As a squad player Smalling will be good but he is just as reckless as the other two but the other two are more injury prone.

3.) 16 Dec 2018 20:29:28
Utd road
Best if all 3 left together.
I am just hoping that Smalling is the only one of the 3 that gets a new contract
I suppose if the club is now thinking smaller, Smalling is the most appropriately named mascot to keep!

4.) 17 Dec 2018 11:25:37
All mentioned destined to see this club slide down the table!

Just not good enough!

Complete overhaul starting with the management/ coaching is required but the team that outplayed us yesterday have already proven that takes time and astute management and even they are not there really yet - I don’t expect them to win premiership nor do most!

24 Aug 2019 21:00:30
I never thought I would find myself saying it but does anyone else feel that we should not be falling over ourselves to keep DDG. I think his head is elsewhere and just perhaps it would be better all round if he went where his head is. Certainly form well back into last season has done nothing to justify a hike in earnings nor the immunity from a pay cut clause if we miss out on CL this season.
Romero when playing has never let us down and we have adequate back up IMO.


1.) 24 Aug 2019 21:12:50
Still has plenty of credit in the bank, sooner his contract is signed the better.

Its not like we are a squad full of quality.

2.) 24 Aug 2019 22:37:20
I had worries last season and felt his head was turned. But I do think he’s still world class and just going through a slump in form. He needs to sign on. If he doesn’t then I’d drop him of Romero.

3.) 24 Aug 2019 22:38:00
Ddg has been blowing hot and cold for a while.
But i still have confidence in him i think if i was manager is take him out of the firing line and leave him out for a couple of games.
Id imagine he is still disjointed not to have got his move and maybe he needs to sign his contract get his head right and come back with a clear head in a couple of weeks time after the intl break.

4.) 24 Aug 2019 23:02:37
Still a top class goalkeeper but can anyone say he has improved over the last three years?

If goalkeepers peak in their late 20's/ early 30's then DDG should still be improving approaching his peak. Yet arguably he dipped last season and he seems to be carrying that form into this season. Beaten twice today at his near post, the second one was particularly bad.

It would be good if the club can keep him, yet I have concerns about tying him to a mega money long term deal.

5.) 25 Aug 2019 03:55:25
Shappy repeat the same for Lingard please. Has he improved in any way in the last, 10 years?

6.) 25 Aug 2019 06:13:33
But he runs a lot UA, apparently it is a far more important skill and doesn't matter if a player doesn't know how to pass, finish, have any vision or even a first touch, if he is English and has come through our youth setup all he needs to know is how to run a lot.

7.) 25 Aug 2019 09:03:36
Credit? What? So whens this credit run out? When we get relegated or something? Until then is he in "credit"?

8.) 25 Aug 2019 08:20:19
Truth be told I think DDG would be second choice behind Romero given his lack of form/ confidence at the moment if it weren't for the fact we are desperate to extend his contract.

9.) 25 Aug 2019 11:52:11
United Addict, are you saying Lingard hasn't improved since he was 17? Ridiculous. Of course he has, is he a world class player? No. Will he be? Highly unlikely (although Drogba wasn't considered a world class player or even potentially a world class player until he was 27. So it does happen, albeit rarely) .

Is he a hard working dedicated passionate club player who can be a useful squad player? Absolutely.

However, the club have offered DDG a 350k per week, 5 year deal. Yet DDG wants closer to 500k per week.

Whereas, Lingard is on less than 180k per week. So they aren't even on the same page wages wise. If Lingard was demanding a 500k per week contract I'd pack his bags myself.

But this isn't about your obsession with Lingard, it's about whether there is value in giving DDG a high wage long term contract. Based on his form of two years ago it is a no brainer. Yet last season he had what many fans are calling an off season. Yet he has started this season in the same vein.

So is it just a bad patch of form? Or has he plateaued and could even be declining slightly?

I have pointed out on several occasions that DDG isn't a great well rounded goalkeeper. He is a world class shot stopper, yet his distribution, command of his area and general communication isn't great. I have also pointed out that shot stopping is an ability that relies heavily on reactions and athleticism. However, these are the first things a player loses as they age. Which means as DDG gets older his shot stopping ability will decline so unless he can improve his other areas he will quickly drop out of the equation of best goalkeeper in the world.

which further asks the question on whether it makes sense to give him a long term contract on a high wage.

10.) 25 Aug 2019 13:39:45
I wouldn't say he's started off this season in the same vein, Shaps. He was very good against Chelsea, and had nothing to do against Wolves. One mistake in the third game. I'd wait for a few more games yet, before I'd be thinking the drop in form might be a more permanent state of affairs.



16 Aug 2019 08:11:45
A plea/ suggestion to all fellow users of this excellent site.
Could we all stick to discussing the OP or if not create a new post. I think this minor discipline would make the site more coherent and useful to all.


{Ed047's Note - yellow and red cards if they don’t? we could also send it up to our very own VAR (ed01) for any final decision. 😁

1.) 16 Aug 2019 08:58:14
Yes Mike Riley sir.

2.) 16 Aug 2019 10:09:39
How does everyone think we'll do against Wolves?

3.) 16 Aug 2019 10:54:10
Rashford hatrick.

4.) 16 Aug 2019 11:56:02
Rooney, great player or unfulfilled potential?

{Ed007's Note - I see Wesley Sneijder retired the other day.}

5.) 16 Aug 2019 12:00:55
Glazers in or glazers out?

6.) 16 Aug 2019 12:11:32
What was the question again? .

{Ed047's Note - right lads the ill discipline on here is shocking, there’s at least 2 yellows and I think I’m going to have to send ed07’s mention of the name Wesley Snydur up to VAR as a potential straight red!

7.) 16 Aug 2019 12:43:04
Wolves - draw

Glazers - most definitely out

Rooney - going to be controversial here and say both. Great player but unfilled potential. He could've been greater.

8.) 16 Aug 2019 12:56:14
Is Rooney a club legend or not?

{Ed025's Note - yes..

9.) 16 Aug 2019 13:45:01
Well done Ed for diversion from the OP. I thought it might go that way even without your help.
Entertaining for all including me!
It would be nice to a least one supporter - I am feeling neglected and lonely (joking)

11.) 16 Aug 2019 15:44:57
A tough 2-1 win to us against Wolves.

12.) 16 Aug 2019 16:30:46
Have we made an offer for sneidger😅.

13.) 16 Aug 2019 13:40:45
I think he meant for United Ed025 :)

{Ed025's Note - its still a yes betty mate..



14 Aug 2019 19:16:39
Having let the dust settle, my most enduring memory of the match on Sunday was seeing Sir Alec relaxed, smiling and so obviously enjoying what he was seeing.


1.) 15 Aug 2019 13:01:45
Mine has to be Dan James's reaction to his goal. The pure emotion from not only him but every1 who knows what he went through before signing was so heartwarming.



12 Aug 2019 08:04:42
The highlight for me yesterday was to seeing SAF thoroughly enjoying game. Relaxed, laughing and joking and beaming from ear to ear.
I am not going to get ahead of myself, it will be a long season, we rode our luck more than a little in the first half, the youngsters will make mistakes, the quality and depth of the squad still need a lot of work.
I am not going to predict or expect top 4-Rome wasn't built in a day, but heigh, the initial omens are good and this season is going to be a much better ride than the last few.
Ole was a chance temporary fix, but is a round peg in round hole.





11 Aug 2019 07:52:13
Having apparently had offers for Jones, Smalling and Rojo (sort of) Is anyone speechless that they are still here?


1.) 11 Aug 2019 08:57:24
Not really if the offers were not deemed acceptable. Still think we will see one of Darmian or Rojo this European window.

2.) 11 Aug 2019 10:38:34
Smalling I would keep out of the 3 with Bailly being injured.

Surely Rojo would be available as a free
He has hardly played. Any offer from Everton would have been an offer to good to turn down.

Maybe come January, Jones may look to leave as I don't see him playing much.

3.) 11 Aug 2019 13:00:49
Ole seems to rate Jones, he plays him when he is fit (not often! ) .

4.) 11 Aug 2019 13:09:38
Everton only wanted him on loan and we wanted him gone so it wasn't acceptable.

Fresh, have you nothing fresh to say?

Scrapheap? If this sort of reaction is taken up by the many we just end up where you wrongly think we already.
