Papers now linking us with Shaqiri.

Him and Shaw would be unstoppable in the cafeteria.

Danny Pughnited

1.) 05 Jul 2018 11:33:52
If Shaw got in first. There would nothing left in the cafeteria.

2.) 05 Jul 2018 11:49:42
I’d say they both try to go through at the same time, and just get stuck.

3.) 05 Jul 2018 12:29:46
Leave the jokes, guys. For 12mln tell me a better quality right winger who happily will be a squad player. And do not forget that we are playing without right wing for years.

{Ed001's Note - happily be a squad player? He left Bayern because he refused to be a squad player.}

4.) 05 Jul 2018 13:09:07
I mean his career has been a litany of failed auditions at big clubs. He ended up at Stoke where he put in no effort. That’s about his level - struggling EPL club where he can get by on natural ability without having to work.

5.) 05 Jul 2018 13:22:55
Not sure he wanted to leave, more like Bayern wanted to sell.

{Ed001's Note - yes, because he refused to knuckle down and be a squad player.}

6.) 05 Jul 2018 13:55:28
A simple question. what if a gamble clicked?

7.) 05 Jul 2018 15:38:35
Always tried to back jose and give him the benefit of the doubt but if the rumours about Shaqiri are true I’ll have lost all faith, don’t care if its 12 million or 12 bob he’s not worth it, i watched him against the swedes and i bet he didn’t run a bloody mile all game and that's at the World Cup.

8.) 05 Jul 2018 17:32:01
Absolute no to shaq IMO. Wont be happy with what we probably wpuld offer and he'd be leaving again next season.

9.) 05 Jul 2018 19:54:58
He’s failed everywhere, why on Earth would we sign him?

10.) 05 Jul 2018 20:02:26
Make a good door stop?

11.) 05 Jul 2018 20:51:35
Last week some folk on here were saying shaqiri is better than mata and jessie. 😂😂😂😂😂😊.

12.) 06 Jul 2018 01:06:08
Talented player but needs a team to be built around him, and he's not talented or applied enough to get that at a top club. Plus, he personifies the opposite of a "Jose player"! I wouldn't pick him ahead of Lingard, Alexis, Mata, Rashford, or the pre-slump Martial. I'd also rather Pogba play further forward with another midfielder in behind him than in a 2 with Shaqiri as 1 of the attacking 4. A big fat no from me. He'll probably end up joining a smaller club. Liverpool perhaps?



14 Jul 2017 11:22:42
Reported in Spain that Madrid are back in for De Gea, and he wants to leave. Price being mooted is £50m. Take it with a pinch of salt.

But if it is true, then this should be fun. If they wanted £70m for their backup striker, then how much is one of the top keepers in the world worth?

Danny Pughnited

1.) 14 Jul 2017 11:24:47
£100m thanks Real.

2.) 14 Jul 2017 11:41:18
Pickford 30 mil for an upcoming keeper. De gea the best in the world needs to be 100 mil +.

3.) 14 Jul 2017 11:46:08
Minimum 100 million.

4.) 14 Jul 2017 12:00:42
All depends for all we know there might have been a gentleman's agreement for him to leave made last summer and a figure agreed. That figure then would look cheap by today's prices. Time will tell.

5.) 14 Jul 2017 12:02:45
£60mill+Kroos please thank you.

6.) 14 Jul 2017 12:03:17
Toni Kroos and £60m.

7.) 14 Jul 2017 12:26:33
with no prior agreement in place between us and RM i would say £95mil and make him the most expensive player in the world - for the short term anyway.

8.) 14 Jul 2017 12:30:08
If he wants out it will be hard to stop. But it must be on our terms. Perhaps we could get the opportunity to talk to bale or kroos if jose wants them.
A question i asked on another thread would we need to sign a keeper or would be go work romero and Perriera?

9.) 14 Jul 2017 12:35:17
Easily worth £100m today. Kroos and 60 would be a good return but this isn't footy manager. I'd love us to just stick 2 fingers up to Madrid and tell Mendes he needs to be loyal to us given the recent business we've done with him.

10.) 14 Jul 2017 13:54:08
Haven't we already rejected a 60 million bid.

11.) 14 Jul 2017 14:31:41
Don't think so bolger.

12.) 14 Jul 2017 14:31:43
Let's be realistic with the valuation, whilst the money at the minute for outfield players is crazy we are not going to get more than £60/ 70m for DDG. Keepers are important but not valued as highly as strikers.
At the end of last year I thought Mourinho for all his talk would have been happy with DDG going at a good price and starting season with Romero and the pereira who he thinks will be world class in a few years.
If DDG goes Hopefully we start conversations about Bale coming the other way.

13.) 14 Jul 2017 14:42:21
Unfortunately I think it's inevitable that De Gea will end up at Madrid. I've said before that it has the feel of the Fabregas to Barcelona to it and will eventually happen. I just hope we get the maximum amount for him. Jose seems to be getting decent fees for all the outgoings so far. I'd say between £80-90 million and he's yours. Then go after Jack Butland.

14.) 14 Jul 2017 14:46:48
Brad, historically goal scorers command the big fees. But with Liverpool rumoured to be happy to pay £70m million for Keita who's had one season in the bundesliga, why not stick for £100m for the worlds best goal keeper?

15.) 14 Jul 2017 15:09:35
Even if the player wants to go, we don't have to do the deal. It is feasible to hold the player to his contract. DDG seems like a good professional and he's already at one of the biggest clubs in the world with Champions League football.

However, I really rate Romero. I was at OT when he made his debut and I thought then he looked like an accomplished keeper. I have no doubt he would be an excellent number one for us.

If DDG is sold that leaves an interesting conundrum with Perriera. If I was Jose I would be asking myself, if Romero got injured is Perriera ready to step up straight away?

I think as that we need to reset the balance of our relationship with Real Madrid. They need to understand that they cannot just help themselves to any of our players and that if they are not prepared to be reasonable with players we want to buy from them, we are prepared to walk away and find an alternative.

Latest rumour is that ETH has ordered players to follow strict diets set by club chef, and that there's weekly BMI checks.

Poor Luke Shaw thinks it stands for Burger Munch Ingestion, says he eats about 5 a day so should be top of the class.

Danny Pughnited

1.) 07 Jul 2022 19:09:46
Setting standards that have long been lost, if rumours of all the other things he’s changing are true then we are in good hands with ten hag as long as the people above him let him do it.

2.) 07 Jul 2022 21:49:57
It's pretty damning of the qay our club has been run previously if this had to be done anyway. Back in the 90s there was top athletes counting calories and weighing ingredients to ensure optimum condition.



13 Nov 2021 12:48:42
Any chance of a total Shappy word count counter? Average novel is about 90,000 words and it be nice to know how many full books he writes per month.

Danny Pughnited

{Ed014's Note - don’t encourage him to write anymore ffs! ?‍♂️?

One of the Ed’s actually read one of his posts and proudly told the rest of us this morning he’d done so.

We’re having the award ceremony early next week!

1.) 13 Nov 2021 14:37:34
Ed014, ever thought of putting an extra Ed just to summarise whatever Shappy posts?

{Ed014's Note - but that would mean the poor sod would have to read it all! ?

2.) 13 Nov 2021 17:25:55
Yeah, so Ed014 you should reprimand the defaulters and rather than banning them, they should be asked to summarise Shappy for 2 weeks atleast. All of a sudden you will see a decline in abusive posts???.

{Ed014's Note - now that’s an idea I like! ??

3.) 13 Nov 2021 19:06:51
How about a Shappy page, and he can post and answer himself?

4.) 14 Nov 2021 05:59:50
United Addict and Ed014,

Probably having them reply to Shappy's posts and replies would be a better idea ?.



31 Oct 2021 12:11:32
Remember when people said that one of Ole's greatest strengths is that he trusts youth?

Yesterday the average age of the starting 11 was 28. Promising young players like Rashford, Greenwood, Sanchez, and VDB sat on the bench with no clear role in the latest formation experiment.

Ole is building nothing for the future, he's hoping that older players can save his job on a week by week basis. The Spurs result is a hollow victory and just buys a bit more time for Ole to take the club further away from a better future.

Danny Pughnited

1.) 31 Oct 2021 12:43:06
Top post!

When you have Ole has a manager and Oompa loompa as a captain then you know we are in a mess.

Sancho isn't that good or atleast not at the moment and we only bought him because he's english and was scared he would go elsewhere.

On a side note, I thought AWB had one of his better attacking games yesterday.

2.) 31 Oct 2021 13:47:00
The sooner he goes the better.
Youth development has been non existent for an year under Ole.
Players like Elanga had a fantastic pre-season but are now hardly making the squad.

Ole is ruining the United DNA.

3.) 31 Oct 2021 13:47:23
Usually I'd be excited after any kind of win, but seeing Ole at the helm playing that same group of 8-9 players and winning by 1-2 brilliant moments doesn't make me excited one bit.
I want him gone now, he's not going to take us anywhere.

4.) 31 Oct 2021 13:53:56
His whole tenure has been built on him talking absoulute pony. There have been plenty of posters regurgitating what he says so it's worked to some extent.

Like you say, he talks about youth but has done no more than his predecessors. When he took over he said "No team will outrun us" we're 20th in the table for distance covered. He talks about "the United way" and "United DNA" yet we play a worse brand of football than what LVG was pillared for. He's as defensive as Jose yet hasn't a clue how to actually organise a defence.

He talks like a man who bluffed his way into a job and hasn't a clue how to do it. He's a fraud of the highest order.

One can only hope that his stay of execution is so we can get the proper man in to replace him.

5.) 31 Oct 2021 14:21:35
He said himself it was the oldest team he has fielded in his time at the club. He is on his last legs so i'm not going to pounce on his every negative action, he will be gone before long.

He hasn't really given youth a chance, he is all talk . the Utd way, DNA, attacking football blah blah blah he has taken the easy cowardly way out every time.

6.) 31 Oct 2021 15:21:54
He is anti the 'united way' loves the club my arse he is dragging it back 40 years.
Personally I'd ban him for life after his sacking I wouldn't let him near the place.

7.) 31 Oct 2021 16:26:57
I'm surprised Matic didn't play from the start.

8.) 31 Oct 2021 17:42:07
If matic played instead of mctominay yesterday it would have been the first time in decades an academy graduate didn't start.

9.) 31 Oct 2021 19:35:39
I'm not sure that's true.
They have had a graduate in every match day squad but not always starting.

10.) 31 Oct 2021 20:50:50
There are atleast 7-8 players and the complete ole and his backroom staff that need to be booted out.

If I could have things my way, Maguire, Martial, Pogba, Mata, Lingard, McTominay or Fred, Henderson, Phil Jones would be sold off and reinvested in places that need reinvestment. Like a defensive midfielder, maybe 2, and another CB.

11.) 01 Nov 2021 10:09:45
I agree with most of the players above but why does Lingard need to sold off?
Lingard went away worked his arse off and had a fantastic second half of season with West Ham.
He's come back in top form and Ole hasn't given him a chance.
Ole is a disgrace and a complete fraud.

12.) 01 Nov 2021 10:11:51
Ole is fighting to save his job. While I'd imagine the 70 year old combined strike force of Ronaldo and Cavani probably bumped up the average age by a year or two.

Very few managers will throw a youngster in when their backs to the wall.

Another reason to end Ole's tenure sooner rather than later.



25 Sep 2021 18:11:51
The biggest thing I've taken away from this season is that the midfield duo are passengers whenever the team is attacking.

When United have possession it's almost like the midfield is holding shape in anticipation of defending. To the point that we often have a clear bank of midfielders and central defenders holding shape in the centre.

Top teams have midfields that can dominate possession and impose the direction of play. We have the opposite: a passive midfield whose job is geared toward when they don't have the ball.

I don't see how this squad can ever accomplish anything if the heart of the team is anonymous in possession. I wonder how long Ronaldo and Varane will be happy playing for a side whose goal is a top 4 finish, rather than competing for titles?

Danny Pughnited

1.) 25 Sep 2021 18:14:54
Agreed, the inability to have ball players in the midfield is holding this team back.

Mctominay spends too much time hiding from the ball and is much more suited to doing bleep tests than passing.

I don't think I've seen much worse players than Fred on the ball in my time watching football.

2.) 25 Sep 2021 18:47:52
My favourite Fred moment was when his miscontrolled the ball, it bobbled around under his feet and then he tried to play a simple pass across midfieled but it went out for a throw in.

He had a big smile on his face and nice little chuckle. That's because the mood in the dressing room is so good.

3.) 25 Sep 2021 19:37:58
Mumbles, fine work!

That actually made me lol.

4.) 25 Sep 2021 19:45:56
Did you notice any of his good pieces of play mumbles? There were plenty today, much better performance from Fred. McT looked very rusty, he should have come off earlier.

5.) 25 Sep 2021 20:04:36
Mumbles that was funny. Look is anyone surprised we didn't win?
Its not a shock result.

6.) 25 Sep 2021 20:49:50
Dodgy, the bar is so low with Fred, I wouldn't say he done anything the other 40 midfielders across the prem will do this weekend.

7.) 26 Sep 2021 00:44:37
I thought Fred was good today, if VDB played like that everyone would say he was amazing.

8.) 26 Sep 2021 08:56:36
You've really a bee in your bonnet about DVB, GDS.



25 Aug 2020 14:12:04
If the prosecutions claims about Maguire are true, his position as captain is untenable.

Using his status as captain in an attempt to bribe a police officer. Not a good look.

If he's stripped, Bruno is the best shout. Hasn't been here long but is a leader.

Danny Pughnited

1.) 25 Aug 2020 14:32:12
Innocent until proven guilty.

What about when Keane was arrested in early 90s and fergie had to go to the police station for him? He went on to become, IMO, our best ever captain?

2.) 25 Aug 2020 14:41:14
In other news congratulations to young Mason Greenwood being called up for his first England squad. Fantastic news for the kid and throughly well deserved.

3.) 25 Aug 2020 15:21:22
I can't believe people are still going by "claims".

It's not worth reading the nonsense where these reports came from as they are click bait.

4.) 25 Aug 2020 17:09:23
These are claims that the prosecution made in court backed by the three arresting officers. It’s what the prosecution is claiming he has done, not a newspaper rumour.

5.) 25 Aug 2020 17:27:35
Found guilty.

6.) 25 Aug 2020 17:27:41
Now found guilty - aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and repeated attempts of bribery.

Quite the rap sheet and don’t think he can remain captain.

7.) 25 Aug 2020 17:34:13
He's just been found guilty.

8.) 25 Aug 2020 17:37:24
Maguire found guilty.

TBH if Spurs are considering an offer for Kane, we should be bidding for him. It’s likely they would be reluctant to sell to an EPL team, but I suspect that Kane would prefer to stay in England to break Shearer’s record.

Even 3 good seasons would be worth it for a top class striker. Especially given the alternatives.

You forgot the 4th option AJH.

4. He isn’t sold and continues to be 5th choice cb, but keeps his England place because Southgate doesn’t care about club form.

We’ve seen multiple managers trying to implement different tactics and game plans over the past 10 years. Every single one has eventually fallen flat. The common denominator is the players. No single player is at fault, but there is an absolutely rotten player culture at the club where it’s obvious that they are unwilling to buy into any footballing approach that requires consistent effort.

It’s a toxic dressing room that drags everyone down to its level. And the players know that if they stop performing, the manager gets sacked and they get to stay.

VAR isn’t inconsistent. It’s just video. What’s inconsistent is refereeing. Not just inconsistent, downright unprofessional. The standard of refereeing has been awful for years with refs not having consistent interpretations of the rules or being able to clearly explain their decisions.

Rather than address the lack of professionalism and accountability in refereeing, they brought in VAR to basically shirk responsibility by saying the computer made the decision. VAR is a tool that should help referees make better decision based on their expertise and common sense. In football it’s used to make decisions. Just another way to excuse referees from being bad at their jobs.

I’ve said this for years, in rugby video is used to allow the ref to discuss an incident with the video ref, use the evidence as a tool to make a decision and then explain their decision to the players. There are still mistakes and some dubious decisions, but there is accountability. The ref makes the decision and has to justify their decision to the players. The discussion is all out in the open and the ref is ultimately responsible.

In football, the ref has a secret conversation with the video ref, if the go over to the monitor you know the original decision is being overturned, and the only explanation is - VAR said it. There’s no accountability and it’s used as an excuse for a lack of quality and professionalism in reffing.

If Eriksen is second choice at number 10 and in cm, what did we buy Mount for?

This seems to be a major failing in the summer’s transfer policy. We spent a big chunk of the budget on a player that doesn’t seem to have any role at the club. I still don’t understand it.

I’m not confident that there’s any chance of a full buyout. They received an offer well above market value and still said no. Any buyer is looking at £6 billion for the club, another billion to clear the debt, and another billion for infrastructure and repairs.

Unless there’s a mass boycott of the club, or more disruptive action that prevents games for being played, the owners will simply continue to do what they have been doing - minimal investment, increase debt, and sell of the club in small pieces until it stops being profitable.

I agree Deano, but I don’t think he will be able to cope with the pressure either. His actions show that he is incapable of keeping temper in check, and is capable of committing acts of horrific violence. Having every set of supporters in the country, and every opposition team targeting you week in week out is monumental pressure. Especially when a proportion of your own club’s support want you out of the club too. I can’t see him coping and honestly hope his career never recovers.

Comparing it to Cantona is nonsense. Cantona reacted once in a hostile environment against someone shouting abuse at him. It was a mistake and he was appropriately punished. Greenwood abused the person he claims to love the most in the world over a long period, physically, sexually and emotionally. The evidence was laid out for the world to see, but he has received no appropriate punishment. The club should have nothing to do with a man like that.
