Rumours of Auba to Utd. No idea if this is now just crazy time due to lack of content. But I have to say, that would be an excellent signing for us. Last year with Arsenal, so they may be tempted to cash in. Almost has the feels of an RVP but he's not quite so deep into his career.

He would be an upgrade on Martial as a 9. Scores goals for fun. What do you all think, would you take him?


1.) 22 Mar 2020 10:38:16
Rumours started last summer when Andy Goldstein from talksport said he was told Utd were in for him so maybe there is something in it who knows. Good player though wish he wasnt as old as he is.

2.) 22 Mar 2020 10:54:42
I think we're done buying older players on high wages. He's a fantastic player but you'd imagine he'd demand Sanchez type salary. Just doesn't seem to go along with Solskjaer's plan.

3.) 22 Mar 2020 12:02:02
I'd prefer lacazette to be honest. Although he's seemed a bit off this season.

4.) 23 Mar 2020 11:10:01
I would rather save the money and buy ighalo and spend the big money on right wing, cm, pogba replacement and pacey centre back.

5.) 23 Mar 2020 12:03:35
Thanks for replies guys. I think that Auba allows us to play how we have been playing, direct and very dangerous on the break, but hs also makes runs in the 6 yard area like a striker. He can score headers with more consistency. Depending on fee he could be interesting. Not for silly money either in transfer or wages.

6.) 26 Mar 2020 16:05:39
who is Auba?

At times this season people actually suggested we might get relegated.

After a poor start with a much changed team this squad has put together a very good recovery. In the end, 3rd place behind these Liverpool and City squads is no big embarrassment.

Both Man Utd and City are in rebuilding mode. Both have gone with young former player coaches and younger teams. Remains to be seen if this will be a successful model - bit I am enjoying the ride.

Always confused by the third place trophy comments, this was the best we could do today, and we did it. Would love to add a UEFA trophy to put a cherry on the season, but even without that, I am excited by the future.

Thanks to all the Ed's in this crazy year.

Great to be back in cl.
I hope the manager gets his core targets.
On to the EL which now is hugely important. 3rd in league is a good improvement and deserved on 2nd half of the season.
Winning the EL makes it a successful season. 4 more games.
Get some signings done very a few players out and hope for further improvement next season. Winning the EL will help this team grow and could help accelerate their progress.

Match day, Man Utd squad have something to prove. First requirement is that everyone shows up, plays hard and committed and earns the right to play football.

We need to start fast paced and turn some chances into goals. These games are completely different when we score early. Hope the squad recognize that they will be judged on what they do today more than their wins against Spurs and City.

Just tuned in to the footy and all I hear is your fans singing about scousers. It’s good to know we’re constantly on your minds 😂👍🏼
Merry Christmas.

2.) 22 Dec 2019 15:59:13
Not one player showed up. Shocking performance.

3.) 22 Dec 2019 17:43:15
Liver_La, this close to Xmas we have to think of the poor and needy. I think you should commend us signing songs to support the scousers at this time.

4.) 22 Dec 2019 18:04:30
Seagull. You’re clearly not from Manchester with that comment, talk the walk from Piccadilly to St Anne’s square and you’ll get my drift.

5.) 22 Dec 2019 20:17:06
Now now children it’s Christmas.

What a difference a round of games make. Jumped 3 places to 6th after one of the worst starts to a season we've had in many a year.

Looking forward to the game at the weekend, very tough test against one of the best teams in europe. But this city team is more vulnerable than the team we played last year.

No doubt we will be put under a lot of pressure. But if we can get a couple of goals, which is entirely possible, maybe we can come away with something from the game.

Ole was on the brink. 4 points or more from these two games is a very good return. I would be very happy to see the rebuild process continue and play out. We have been better than results have shown. I expect a stronger season from here on in.


1.) 06 Dec 2019 09:44:02
Few weeks ago we were getting relegated! January will be key for us, but let’s hope there’s no signings for the sake of it and we get players we need/ want.

2.) 06 Dec 2019 12:59:44

Don’t say things like that, Ole is taking us down and everyone can see it 🙄.

Top 10 goals by Nani on Man Utd social media today. He scored some absolute corkers, what a player he was. In the end his inconsistency frustrated fans, but on his day he was almost unplayable. Well worth watching his top 10 if you have time.


1.) 18 Nov 2019 07:16:09
Yeah. Scorer of great goals.

2.) 18 Nov 2019 20:03:48
I remember finding him infuriating, but he was also a victim of the incredible high standards we had at the time. I read the other day that in the 2010/ 11 season he got 14 league assists, more than any other player in the league that year.

3.) 18 Nov 2019 20:42:16
I really liked Nani. However, consistency was always his problem. It was the range in performances he would give. You never knew before kick off whether he was going to be a 9 or a 5 out of 10 that game.

When on form he was unplayable and I would honestly take peak Nani over peak Hazard just for the joy he used to play with when on form.

His Micky taking out of Arsenal still ranks as one of my favourite moments.

He looked like he was going to kick on from the 10/ 11 season. But sadly he got injured the following season and he never quite got back to that form. Once Moyes came in it was writing on the wall time which is a shame as I feel he could have contributed more than other players managed in the post Sir Alex era.

He won't go down as a legend, but maybe as a cult hero for some of us.

4.) 18 Nov 2019 21:02:25
Nani over hazzard 😂😂😂😂😂😂.

5.) 19 Nov 2019 15:55:45
Hazard any day for me. Nani was just a show off and only woke up once in 10 games.

Even on Hazzards bad he was ahead of Nani in terms of what he used to do for the team.



06 Oct 2019 15:38:50
Be good to see Tuanzebe and Macguire together today. Hopefully they can forge a good partnership.

Desperate need for a win today. Quite a few unavailable, hopefully the boys selected can put a performance in and come away with 3 points. We need them!


1.) 06 Oct 2019 15:58:28
I like Tuanzebe and he'll hopefully do well. Midfield and attack looks short. 4231 is not great for us. Should go 433.

2.) 06 Oct 2019 16:14:20
Do we have enough players to play 3 in midfield? Right wing is an issue in both formations.

3.) 06 Oct 2019 16:15:40
These training methods that were meant to get players fitter really are working great for us.

So we need to sign a pit pony and find a right winger who resembles his mother's brother. Come on Ed, get your cheque book out. Lol.

We'll really miss Pogba after the stella year he's had.

This is simply disgusting behaviour. These knuckle draggers are representing us. We must stand together to condemn this abhorrent behaviour. Imagine if Ed's family had been there alone.

This stems and escalates from the singing of the songs in the ground. I hope people realise how this poison needs to be stopped, whether it is songs aimed at Liverpool, or Glazers or Woodward there are lines that should not be crossed. The acceptance of the singing in the grounds leads to idiots like these thinking it is funny or amusing to threaten death and cause violence.

Seems to be some spin being leaked that we are only willing to offer what they feel spurs had accepted last year, plus a slight increase off back of good season.

With the income utd have, they are always going to get charged top dollar for any player they buy. It is part of the trickle down of money.

But in this circumstance, Sporting signed a new contract with the player. Which impacts his value. I think it is a pretty low risk transfer for a player that has the skills we need. Compared to some transfer values it is not outrageous to pay straight up $50m with $20m in reasonable add ons (international appearances, ucl qualification etc)

I hope they get it done. If no-one comes in at all it could have a negative impact across the club and supporters. This one signing could easily galvanise a top 4 push.

League and cup double.

Liverpool remember that they aren't all actually superhuman.

City continue the decline. We realise that Arteta was the driving force behind Pep Arsenal overtake them. But then pull an arsenal and fail in the winter months.

Chelsea biggest threat. But don't quite gel.

Tottenham and jose drift into obscurity.

Yes red man. Lukaku was sold. Was he good enough? Not for me. I'm guessing behind the scenes Ole decided he needed to go. That is what managers do. Assess the squad and make changes. 3rd behind that Liverpool and City squad wasn't bad though eh? And when you think he only had his star signing for the second half of the season.

No Messi really is thinking of leaving this time. He has credible options in manchester amongst other places.

Messi signs new world record contract with Barcelona, including a lifetime coaching position at their world famous youth academy. (I think I am becoming old and cynical)

PP better get on with making his legacy. He is playing no where near the player he was capable of being. If he's moving. Go move somewhere and be the player you want to be. If he staying, same.

Forget the money and be a star player. It starts with effort.

(Just incase he reads this page! Lol)

Yes really.

The one exception was Herrera, who was loved. But our midfield lacked creativity with him in there, and he was not great as the only defensive mid in the style Matic plays for us now. He was great in a 3 man midfield. But that limited other options.

Di Maria was terrible. Heart not in it. Fell out with team mates or manager. who knows? But he was not good enough for us when he was here.

Lukaku was terrible, scores goals, but limits other players. Control and touch awful.

Young? Come on. Time well served. But everyone wanted him to go.

Sanchez was not missed by arsenal fans, who watched him every day. Came to man utd and we were surprised that match of the day sanchez didn't show up.
