According to one of Alan Brazil sources. Pogba will never play for Manchester United again. Apparently Pogba went on french media to try and deny faking an injury.
Anyone heard this?

Draig goch

{Ed002's Note - I rather doubt he has "went oin French media" whatever that means and said such a thing. He wants to leave - I am sick of explaining that.}

1.) 27 Nov 2019 09:07:34
May as well sell up. Top 4 won’t happen, he wants out, move on. Long way back for Utd I fear.

2.) 27 Nov 2019 10:03:28
Eric- agree top 4 is far off but never impossible and also we as a team have a long rebuild pRoject, but re pogba: results without him are no worse than when he played the last 4 months of last season. As ed has repeatedly said he wants out, his agent will probably burst a blood vessel trying to engineer a move and if we get the right money, it could be reinvested into getting at least 2 positive replacement players. I see this as a positive with the prospect of matic moving on, smalling gettoing us a fee andyoung hopefully put out to grass in the summer.

3.) 27 Nov 2019 12:26:29
I checked the French media and there's nothing to suggest he spoke to anyone. Cadena Cope, a Spanish outlet, has claimed that several Man Utd players believe the injury is fake and that it is only to force a move to Real Madrid. Several French outlets picked up on the story, nothing more, the most prominent being goal. com.

4.) 27 Nov 2019 14:19:46
Pogba doesn't want to be here and if he wants to go to Real Madrid he will likely have to join in January. The big push for Pogba in Madrid is from Zidane, who himself is on dodgy ground and might not see out the season. If Zidane leaves before next summer then so does Pogba's best chance of joining Real Madrid.

So I can see him trying to force through a deal in January.

5.) 27 Nov 2019 14:50:38

You could actually argue that results are better without him, especially in the last 6 games. If we had sold in the summer and replaced with 2 good midfielders we would be in a much stronger position now that’s for sure. Hopefully that is what happens either in January or this summer and we can have a team of players who want to fight for the shirt.

6.) 27 Nov 2019 16:06:32
Let him go, let him go. I never liked him anyway. No swaps though.

7.) 27 Nov 2019 19:40:50
Agree with the above comments. No point keeping a player who wants to be elsewhere. He should have stayed in Italy at a very good Juve side in hindsight. Won’t be surprised if he goes back (if they have the cash or players to swap)

8.) 28 Nov 2019 15:41:11
GDS2 - looking at the last six games, i agree with you mate.

9.) 28 Nov 2019 19:42:43
Its tough to get the cash without them having makeweights.
To be honest if we got any midfielder from juve or madrid and cash they will be better than fred and andreas
Mctom needs some experience and quality around him so he can keep improving.

do Manchester United still have any interest in Herrera from Bilbao? Is there anyone else interested in him?

{Ed002's Note - I wouldn't think so.}

Most of us think ole is out of his depth. He would have made a good no 2 IMO. Phelan escapes critics every week why? Failed twice as manager. Director of football at Sydney FC says it all. Between ole and and phelan we have a succession of failures. No 2 don't often make good no 1. Brian kids a prime example.
Question is would potch bring succees? United need a no 8 a 10 and a st and a rw for me.

Draig goch

1.) 22 Dec 2019 16:54:42
Poch can't improve players that can't improve.

You can't take bang average players and turn them into world class players.

Most of them players are at their maxium level.

2.) 22 Dec 2019 17:32:25
Poch brought nothing to Spurs other than competitiveness at the top level. No trophies, not even a League Cup. Even if he were interested in the job, which I doubt, why would you think he's capable of producing the goods at United?

United have little choice but to stick with Ole who is not responsible for the squad or the ineptitude of the players he inherited.

Today's loss was not down to him. We had the better of very few chances, including to go ahead. Lingard's miss and de Gea's blunder cost us the game, not Ole or his tactics.

3.) 22 Dec 2019 18:39:40
It's not just this one loss today though is it, we struggle against teams that sit and defend.
The same problems that we encountered against Palace back in August have not been solved, can Ole figure out how to break down defensive teams before the summer or will he inevitably go the same way as Moyes, LVG and Mourinho.

4.) 22 Dec 2019 18:43:12
Talking sense there shawthing. Spot on! We are too inconsistent to finish in the top four in my opinion it's just not happening.

5.) 22 Dec 2019 21:11:37
Total rubbish Bolger, the same players who lost against Watford, beat Spurs and City quite convincingly. So that old saying we're not good enough, doesn't wash. It's just a big fat rubbish excuse, do wake up and smell the roses.



22 Dec 2019 14:57:41
Can someone tell me how Lingard gets so much game time 3 goals in all compz and 1 assist for a no 10 2428 minutes shocking. Never ever good enough for United nither is Pereira.

Draig goch

1.) 22 Dec 2019 15:51:04
Think there’s your answer, that’s the 2 options.

2.) 22 Dec 2019 15:54:37
We are crying out for a no.10 lingard wouldn't get on for Watford.

3.) 22 Dec 2019 15:57:28
Or Mata, who is slow until 50 minutes when he runs out of battery.

4.) 22 Dec 2019 16:02:05
Good point gds.
So why try to play a system when you don't have players to execute the system.
Use a different system that's what good coaches do.
They don't just do the same thing expecting different answers.

5.) 22 Dec 2019 17:13:11
Ken, it's what good coaches do. that's the key line there.

6.) 23 Dec 2019 12:48:39
It's not as if we have a young talented player (who "apparently" has a bad attitude) that plays in that position is it?



18 Jul 2019 18:31:35
Hi fellow posters rarely post but read every day. What do people think of Danny rose as competition for shaw. 29 years old. Maybe available for around 20mil.

Draig goch

1.) 18 Jul 2019 19:29:52
He's a better attacking outlet, but much poorer defensively in my opinion.

2.) 18 Jul 2019 20:09:48
Not now. 3 years ago yes but at 29 his best is behind him. i'd be delighted if shaw reaches roses level. Like shaw has had a ciuple of injury issues but had a great session season last year.

3.) 18 Jul 2019 21:31:53
Basically NO - for the reported cost we could put a bid in for Tierney who would be a much better purchase NOW and for the future.

4.) 18 Jul 2019 21:57:56
Tierney is better than Shaw who gets caught out of position far too often for my liking.

5.) 18 Jul 2019 22:30:35
Tierney looks a great player playing for a side that never has to defend in a league so poor my Grandma would be a half decent player.

He needs to move to the big leagues to see if he is as good as he is hyped up to be.

6.) 19 Jul 2019 05:07:00
Like Robertson Shappy?

Trust me, Tierney is every bit as good.

7.) 19 Jul 2019 05:36:29
Absolutely no.
Rose is yet another injury prone player.
We have Dalot who can cover both LB and RB spots if Shaw/ AWB is unavailable.

8.) 19 Jul 2019 07:08:52
Like others I would say no to Rose and I would say yes to Kieran Tierney. But it would only be a short time before Shaw is the one trying to put pressure on to regain a 1st team berth.



18 Jul 2019 12:21:48
Hi edd002 has United shown any interest in Danny rose?

Draig goch

{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 19 Jul 2019 09:19:20
And thank bugs bunny we didn’t show any interest!



02 Sep 2014 19:37:00
Probably get slated for this but does anyone think we should look to offload Rooney next summer. I was not a wellbeck fan but preferred him to Rooney as he offered more in attack.
I never saw the world class in Rooney as labeled by most. For me he peaked well to early.
I would like to sign cavani think him and falcao would be brilliant together up front.
Disappointed to see Chicarito going as I do think moyes ruined his confidence last year. He will score a shied load for Madrid. And they can buy him for only 16m. To think lukaku had one good season on loan to Everton then got sold for 28m.

Draig goch

1.) No, I think he will play in the hole.

2.) Just read Paul Parker's article regarding Rooney. OUCH!

3.) Could see Rvp moving on next year due to age and injuries if Wilson manages to step up

4.) Matas Beard, there's a reason MU got rid of so many strikers this summer. It's so we can keep the best one's. Van Persie is our best striker.

5.) Rvp and falcao are both top players but they are both 9s both play on the shoulder and play in the same areas, make similar runs .
Neither imo are a second striker so i'm not sure there a partnership .
It would be like playing 2 andy cole's

6.) If we are playing our strongest 11 I don't see where Rooney fits in. So I think next summer is too far away if we want to maximise, he will lose value if he plays less and he is earning a packet when we don't have CL. So I would have shipped him out this window and kept Danny - probably nobody would have took on his wages and that's partly why LVG made him captain, just my view. If you have Rooney in your squad he may as well be a happy Rooney and maybe play better if he is captain, last chance to make him shine, (doesn't seem like it has worked so far)! Maybe Jan for a CL team that need reinforcing.

We missed a trick with the £16mil for Hernandez clause, if he gets regular games his value should sky rocket as my mum could score tons of goals poaching for Madrid.

Lukaku has much more potential than Hernandez to be fair. The pea is a one trick pony and not been too great at that recently, Lukaku could be a machine in a couple of years, but Everton have still overpaid by £8mil imo.

7.) I would like to see either Rooney or van persie sold and won't loose any sleep over it if both where sold, but they just never seem to play well together!
Its going to be very interesting to see how they both react to not being the top earner/striker in club or has money loyal Rooney got clause in his contract to keep him highest paid in club?
What do yee think of benteke as possible replacement if he recovers from his current injure?

8.) Falcao is our best striker

9.) I don't rate Benteke, very clumsy and I think he will be a trap (one season wonder). I can see Spurs going for him in Jan after he has come back from his injury.

10.) Beast
So lvg made rooney captain because of his wages.
Did roy make him england captain because of his wages.
Come on pal last season you argued united played poor because rooney played well.
And anyone would of scored as many goals as rooney for england and united if they had played the same amount of games .
Every one has an opinion but your verging on a troll .
Rooney is on a long term contract and club captain I think people at united may have a different view to you

11.) Rooney is a number 10 IMO so should play there. He likes to roam and he will be able to in this position. let's Falcao and RvP do what they do best and let Rooney do what he does best. That's what I think anyway. A midfield of Blind, Herrera & Di Maria backed up by an attack of Rooney, RvP & Falcao is exciting. Just need our defence to step up now.

12.) Falcao isn't ours. He's Monaco's. So Van Persie is our best striker :-)

13.) Syd
This season falcao is our best striker.
Falcao is a better 9 than rvp .
I read in the last 3 year falcao had 4 assists .
Im not sure that's true but he doesn't do assists he scores goals . He plays the 18 yard box, he plays on the shoulder he plays the 9 role.
Rvp best 2 seasons, 1 for arsenal 1 for united have come playing that role.
They can't both play that role imo if rvp plays with falcao he will have to change and play as a second striker.

Lvg said " when this calibre becomes available, it is an opportunity not to be missed "
And he is right . Rvp imo will play second fiddle to falcao he will have to play the second striker role .

14.) 03 Sep 2014 06:19:08
Syd ,
If Rooneys best position is no. 10 , why did Mourinho try to buy him to be no. 9 for Chelsea?

15.) Bilko, it would have been for one season until they got Costa. Then Rooney would have moved deeper behind Costa. Where does Rooney play for England? I expect to see RvP and Falcao playing upfront, with Rooney just behind them.

Ed002 could you please explain why Manchester United would hand Mike phelan a 4 year contract extension?
If Ole was released from his role as manager would that mean phelan Carrick and mcenna would also be revealed of their roles or would other roles be offered within the club structure for them?

Hope we don't get Sancho. No better than rashford. Goes missing in big games like pogba. German League easy in comparison to prem.

He dosent want United. Wouldn't give more than 60mil for him. Much better available for a fraction. Look at Rodriguez at Everton. Class.

15mil for me he should be 30 mil .if lukaku is worth 26 mil. Then Chicarito would be more. Same for kagawa. If Luiz is 40 mil then kagawa is worth at least 30mil. Wellbeck to even though I never rated him he is got to be 25 mil because he's english, still young and Carroll cost 35 after 1 season for newcastle

Rashford well overated. Danch would be a big expensive mistake. Pogba is the cancer in United squad. He needs to go. Shaw and Maguire need to go. I'd have Jones in the defence at this rate before maguire. Wan bisaka going backwards Maguire going backwards.
Coaching staff no experience at all. Phelan sacked from every club he managed.
