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?

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.

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.

who is Auba?

Things aren't so bad, we are only 3 points off the top of the table with a game in hand ?.


1.) 07 Aug 2022 10:51:10
4-0 win and top of the league by the end of the day.

2.) 07 Aug 2022 12:20:28
I'll take 1 nil win.



12 Jul 2022 02:40:26
One of the best media reports I've seen in a while suggests it MIGHT be a bad thing that both Man Utd's first choice CBs could be out through injury. Says it all really!

New chef signed for OT canteen. Ten Haag really getting what he wants now, maybe Shaw will be a top LB after all ??.


1.) 11 Jun 2022 13:49:12
Let’s hope the new guy is a magician and can make broccoli taste like pies and burgers and maybe Shaw will finally get in shape the little lump.

2.) 11 Jun 2022 14:44:14
Brendan how dare you call Shaw a little lump.
He is a great big lump.

3.) 11 Jun 2022 21:27:57
Shaw was probably supposed to be in the salad queue but like the rest of his time at United he was in the wrong place and found himself at the front of the pudding queue.

Is it true that Shappy is transferring to the Newcastle page?

Aparently they are willing to pay him by by the word, and would welcome the variety of opinions that come from each post ;)


1.) 14 May 2022 04:03:56
How much per word? ?.

{Ed001's Note - mate even if it was 1p you would be richer than Elon Musk in a year!}

2.) 14 May 2022 04:33:33
1p per word, not even sure the Saudis could afford that Ed! ?.

{Ed001's Note - nor me. They would be bankrupt in days.}

3.) 14 May 2022 22:54:38
Shaopy that reply of yours was a tad short for you. Are you feeling OK?

4.) 15 May 2022 06:28:06
Salford, I'm feeling fine, good in fact. If you notice some of the times of my recent replies/ post are very early as I'm currently not in the UK. On my jollies on the other side of the Atlantic.

Oh, England’s finest football team its record truly great,
its proud successes mocked by a cruel turn of fate.
Eight men will never play again, who met destruction there,
the flowers of English football, the flowers of Manchester.


1.) 06 Feb 2022 10:02:09
The flowers of Manchester always remembered today.

RIP boys.

If there is a heaven, and they are looking down, they must be shaking their heads at the state of this once great club. They played for the love of the game, and for each other, a true team. Our team today is light years away from that unfortunately. Overpaid, under performing prima-donnas. Sad to see.

What if maguire, lindelof, fred and McTom start the first few games and we win all of them?

Our rebuild runs a lot deeper than all 4 of these players, and they all have something to offer this squad for at least the next 12 months.

Martinez will probably be given a little time to settle in to life in the uk.

Martinez and erikssen likely to be in the first team sooner rather than later, even if they don't start game 1.

Bissouma was a non starter.

All 3 of ten Haag's signings look very promising. We are going in the right direction and I'm sure ten haag is considering options for midfield, which he clearly believes is critically important to his style of play.

He seems to be eth's guy. So very good sign if the club brings him in. Same with other signings, if eth is happy with ins and outs then we are in much better shape than setting him up to fail with players he doesn't really fancy while also trying to establish a new system and way of playing.

Seems like Martinez over pau Torres was heavily influenced by EtH. So that is another good sign.

Especially this season I think we need to back EtH and give him as much of his asks as we can, then it is over to him to get his squad playing how he wants them to.

Is Anthony worth that money, or good enough? No idea. But I am very happy if EtH is getting his players.

I suppose it is also possible it is a bid with very little paid now and lots paid later with clauses. Lots of ways Ajax could be disappointed with a bid.

Bottom line is we waited until after Ajax had sold half their team (again) so they are clearly in the driving seat and in no need for the money.

Harland and nunez will both make the top two teams far better in the air than they have been in recent years. The trend for small strikers (aguero) or false 9 quick and Clever players (foden, mane. Jotta, silva) could be over.

It's going to be a very up and down season. Even if we buy another 4 first team players, this amount of change takes time. When did a team last buy 7 or 8 first team starters and make top 4?

There is a difference between patient and hopeful and gullible. The ship is turning, a long road ahead, but it is happening. The player who have gone have all been the right players, I won't miss any of them. The ones who stay have a clean slate, a short rope, and need to prove themselves.

Damn right Shawthing.

Have to say that Arsenal laid down a bit of a marker. They looked pretty slick and well balanced for an opening game of the season. Jesus could really make them, right striker right club forthetype of football they play?

ED014 is always banking on about Saliba, hadn't seen much of him but he looked very promising for his age. Could be a proper player for them.

That said, we also could get playing some nice stuff quite easily. Confidence is a funny thing. Same players can look like a pub team or world beaters just with some confidence and momentum. I suspect we might be a very inconsistent team, but hopefully we can grind a few results out on the off days.


{Ed001's Note - Saliba is a class act, he should have already had 2 years of Prem experience rather than being farmed out on loan, but Arteta is an imbecile. They would have got top 4 with him in their defence last season.}

New players will not be linked to profit RedMan. Old players sold below their book value might, which may explain why we struggle to sell players who have no role in the first team.

This is utter rubbish DLIB. There is a massive squad overhaul underway, many have gone (not just 1) and many more will go.

3 new players in and the club is working on more with 1 month left to go.

List because you don't like the 5 players mentioned doesn't mean that EtH doesn't.

Total rebuild is in progress.

New leadership. Yes
New manager. Yes
New coaching staff. Yes
Get rid of the players causing dressing room unrest. Yes
Buy players the manager wants, not club targets he doesn't. In progress.

Seriously. Why so frustrated already? I was as frustrated at Rashford strolling as anybody. But let EtH weed out to rubbish, work with the rest and start to build a team that can challenge. IT TAKES TIME.
