When VVD signed for Liverpool, as MU fans we mocked the ridiculous fee that the scousers paid for a "good, but not world class" CB.

Now, no-one brings up the fee paid, or the outrageous and embarrassing approaches, that resulted in a public apology from LFC.

Why? Because, in the end, time heals the wounds felt by Southhampton and Leicester. No-one will remember if the player takes the step up and becomes a great player for their new side.

Few blaim Rooney for leaving Everton, VVD for leaving Southampton. And no-one will criticize Maguire for leaving Leicester.

Is the fee ridiculous? Of course. But it will soon seem money well spent if Harry becomes a locked down fixture in the MU first team. A player we have spent 6 years looking for. Yes. A resounding yes.

Good luck Harry, we have been waiting for you.

I agree with all that DodgyBanter!

" Here Here "

To Harry taking the chance and let's hope he takes it with Hands to prove his worth amongst all the negative fault finding critics! .

Lets hope the back 4 gel quickly? They are the last line of defence! If they put in the work for the club, Manager and Fans? But most importantly work on their own abilities and techniques etc

Enough of the Rambling.

Welcome Harry.

Who was mocking Liverpool when they signed VVD? I certainly wasn’t, I was envious. A glaring weakness in our team and a player who looked top class at Celtic, then in the PL, was always destined for the top imo. Probably the most complete current CB in the world now. I was just baffled we weren’t interested in him.

Completely agree Stand.

Nice line up today, looks like 442, hope the lads are riding on the wave of energy from midweek and not exhausted by it.

Big opportunity for Dalot and Fred, and Lukaku who has played his way back into the first team in recent weeks.

I fear Arsenal. 2 or 3 nil defeat.

2.) 10 Mar 2019 18:24:29
With Arsenal having an easy run in I really do tho k we will struggle to get 3rd or 4th place now. We Will have two hard games against Wolves plus obviously against City it won't be easy. Today we had to win especially as both Spurs and Chelsea didn't win this weekend. If we don't make the Champions League places it will seriously impede our chances of getting the players we need to improve and also impede our chances of fighting for the league title. Bearing this in mind how do you think Ole handles the match today?



05 Mar 2018 12:55:27
Massive game today, the ground will be absolutely rocking. The atmosphere intimidating. We simply have to get a result. To lose confidence going into the next three games would be very difficult to turn around.

Chelsea and Arsenal seem to be self selecting out of the top four. We do not want to invite them back in. Three points please Jose.


1.) 05 Mar 2018 14:00:05

I would obviously like us to win but I am not sure I agree with you about confidence. We seem to be a different team home and away, we can be poor away from home then come back to OT and play like a different team, each time this season we have struggled in an away game we have won the following home game, very strange but it does seem to be the case.

2.) 05 Mar 2018 14:49:54
3 point tonight's and top 4 is sorted imo .
Lift the doom and gloom of last week.

3.) 05 Mar 2018 18:38:23
Nothing surprises me. A narrow win a confortable win a draw or defeat are all entirely possible. Thays tje nature of this team at the moment.
I agree that going into the next 3 games with momentum would be preferable.

Accidental post!

Utd chel and arse have all struggled to get individuals to play better than the sum of their parts. This means that those teams are very reliant on key players form, and individual brilliance. Sometimes this is just team confidence, utd certainly looked much better pre the Liverpool away game. Here's hoping we can get that swagger back.




03 Mar 2018 17:43:31
I wonder how much worse our team will be by the end of the Liverpool match.

Interesting read down the page about the city and utd managers and teams. Very clear to me that the utd platers are not playing well in combinations as a team. City, Liv and Tot all seem to have cracked that, utd, Chel and Arse.

Welcome back Sydney! What have you done with Dee? We could use some of his blind optimism around here!

I would sell, he is only going to get slower and less mobile. We would definitely need at least one midfielder in theis window if he goes though.


{Ed004's Note - We needed to be ruthless and let a couple go first imo.}

Always felt Tuanzebe shone more than TFM that season. He had Hazard in his pocket one game when playing at right back if I remember correctly.

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..

Greenwood has had tonsillitis, hopefully he is back playing midweek.

Yeah, Aguero's goal record has been seriously affected by his injuries!

Aguero, not even close.

Not sure I would engage in too much UCL banter with the pool this year be fair mate. We need to sort our own house out before we go down that path.

Agreed with this Ken. This was why I asked how many points front he next 5 games people would be happy with. It helps to bring some time and perspective.

A run of 5 Loses would probably have seen Ole fired on top of previous trend of results.

First game down with a Win.

So is 4 wins and a loss enough for everyone to feel we are going in the right direction? 3 wins a draw and a loss? That form would probably be somewhere between 3rd and 6th if it played out for the rest of the season. Let's face it, that is where we are headed.

Only if we bring a replacement in. We are thin in midfield and he will play a lot of games before January.
