Hearing reports that we are in talks with Antero Henrique for the Director of Football role. I thought he was off the Inter last week and we were in talks with Campos.


1.) 27 Jan 2020 18:50:16
Falling for it again are we?

2.) 27 Jan 2020 18:51:00
Here we go PR machine in overdrive this is clubs excuse for there being no signings in January but we might have a DOF meaning no. need to protest because Woodward won't be in charge of transfers Win Win for the board again.

3.) 27 Jan 2020 20:18:06
Not falling for it Dan, just pointing out the regularity with which we are linked with a new DoF, our PR dept is busier than our transfer dept.

4.) 28 Jan 2020 01:00:12
I wouldn't get too excited anyway he hasn't exactly had glowing reports from his previous jobs.



05 Aug 2019 06:25:38
The Times reporting that Real have bid £27 million + James for Pogba, which United have rejected. Is there any Marid player that you would take as part of a deal, I cannot think of one.


1.) 05 Aug 2019 07:57:08
Hazard ;-)

2.) 05 Aug 2019 08:08:22
Isco is the only one.

3.) 05 Aug 2019 08:11:33
Hazard, Vinicius Jr, Varane, Casemiro :)

4.) 05 Aug 2019 08:33:32
Varane+80M for Pogba instead of Maguire.

5.) 05 Aug 2019 08:46:07

6.) 05 Aug 2019 09:18:21
Zinedine Zidane, at 47 he would still be the second best creative player at the club.



12 Jul 2019 18:32:34
BBC reporting Lukaku to Inter will not happen.


1.) 12 Jul 2019 19:06:47
Not if they can't meet Uniteds valuation.

Same goes for any club we had to meet wb valuation.

Lukaku is under contract.

2.) 12 Jul 2019 21:10:08
Speaking of the Beeb. How come, everyday during the season, they have a transfer talk page. Then when the transfer window is actually flipping open, they stop doing it.

3.) 13 Jul 2019 01:41:10
Lukaku should stay and fight for his place,

4.) 13 Jul 2019 08:38:58
We can moan when we sell players cheap seemingly always and then want players gone no matter what, club has a valuation and then they will negotiate.

5.) 13 Jul 2019 10:33:37
Unfortunately we probably overpaid for Lukaku, and may have to accept that his value has not risen while at the club.

6.) 13 Jul 2019 09:37:15
Apparently inter wouldn't consider skriniar in a deal to any club but they want RL and at a lower fee than we want. Easy choice: make skriar a part of the deal if man utd are willing or pay the rate for RL. After all they stuck to their valuation on perisic .

{Ed002's Note - Nonsense I am afraid. Playing on Twitter again?}

7.) 13 Jul 2019 11:35:14
Southern Monkey, the Beeb's transfer page hasn't stopped. I read it on the app every day. I think it's been shunted to the bottom of the website due to the women's World Cup.

8.) 13 Jul 2019 12:01:08
Ed 002 - not on twitter I'm afraid.
Been a long time admirer of Skriniar who "apparently " is not available; various reports and probably wrong, and was simply stating it would imo, be a good deal to involve a player that could be a more attractive option to us and go someway to easing defensive frailties. Wishful thinking ed002,

{Ed002's Note - There has been no attempt of MU to do that.}

9.) 13 Jul 2019 21:16:52
The club should not sell its assets cheaply but there comes a time when holding on makes not much business sense if it means retaining a player who is not going to get game time and whose salary is taking up needed space. If that's the case for Lukaku then £60m would at least be a profit on the residual book value and £5m a year off the wages bill. That's a lot of conjectures and we have no idea what's going on, or even whether there are any serious talks or with whom. In any event we should trust Ed Woodward. We all know he has amazing expertise in the transfer market.

10.) 13 Jul 2019 22:56:41
Icardi booted off the pre season tour so he could be going leaving a space and some money for Lukaku.

Diego Forlan has retired, 1 December should be made a holiday in Manchester in his honour.

Nice tweet from Harry Maguire's mum today
"When your son dreams of playing for Man Utd as a little boy, then you wake up one morning and it's happening, dreams can come true. "
Welcome to United Harry.




02 Aug 2019 21:21:25
So with one pre-season games left, what would everyone consider as a good season come May?


{Ed004's Note - Probably a better question to ask once window closes. Currently 4th and an improvement in our style of play}

1.) 02 Aug 2019 22:15:56
We are Manchester United, so we must be challenging for the title, i don't care what's gone before, this is now, nothing wrong with a bit of positivity 😂.

2.) 02 Aug 2019 23:19:19
Also a few managers that couldn’t or weren’t aloud to manage etc.

I’m hopeful for a better season this season.

We will see.

3.) 02 Aug 2019 21:55:18

If pre season is to go by we can see what OGS is trying to implement. Pressing from the front is what we have all been crying out for, even martial has been pressing from the front which is great to see.

I'm quite optimistic.



01 Aug 2019 20:06:00
"Man Utd Chief Executive Ed Woodward has left the club's tour of Australia early to carry out some urgent transfer business. " 17 July 2013.
Six years since that infamous press release, has Woodward improved in the transfer market?


1.) 01 Aug 2019 20:48:40
Sneijder! It’s got to be Sneijder!

2.) 02 Aug 2019 09:08:09
Grim never mind has he improved, has he concluded that urgent transfer business since that infamous flight back in 2013?



21 Jul 2019 05:49:31
A sad and embarrassing day to be a United fan yesterday with the booing of Ashley Young. Reminds me of the Fellaini incident a few years back,


1.) 21 Jul 2019 07:28:58
Regardless of us thinking young is past it.

Never should a player be getting booed

Embarrassing by the fans.

2.) 21 Jul 2019 08:32:42
Fans get to boo who they want. They certainly paid enough to voice their opinions.

Not to worry, Old Trafford fans tend to be more supportive of individual players and are more often than not a class act.

International fans have even less connection with the players/ mentality that develops at Old Trafford and they tend to be a lot more harsh. Either way I doubt Young would trade his multi million pound contrat in order not to have to deal with boos. Players are paid more than enough to have thick skin.

3.) 21 Jul 2019 08:40:06
Yh does remind you of the some of the abuse fellaini got at times as well as the fan who was hurling abuse at pogba at the last game of the season.

Wierd way to conduct yourself as a fully functional adult.

4.) 21 Jul 2019 08:45:41
I think booing is a personal thing, although peer pressure often plays a part in large crowds.

Personally I don't like the booing, especially if the player is a hard worker who is doing their best, you can't ask more of them than that. It's slightly more understandable when you have a talented player not trying hard enough, or causing problems. However, we often still don't know the fully circumstances.

I don't like how Pogba has acted, but I still wouldn't boo him.

5.) 21 Jul 2019 09:27:17
Not exactly locals were they? Sad and wrong.

6.) 21 Jul 2019 09:38:34
Ashley Young

Played nearly 250 games for the club.
Has never given less than 100% for shirt.
Won every domestic competition in his 8 years at the club.
Signed by Sir Alex.
Pick by every England manager for last 11 years and got to WC semi.

Not our best player but has done enough to our earn respect.

This will be his last season and he should be covering not 1st choice. It is not his fault the club didn't sign better players than him and shouldn't be booed by anyone.

Wear Green and Gold boo the club for mismanagement if you have an axe to grind.

7.) 21 Jul 2019 10:27:38
Spot on RDA. Well said Sir.

8.) 21 Jul 2019 13:27:13
Totallt agree woth the original poster and rda. Young might be getting old, but he's never let the club down or given the manager a moment of trouble.
I think people like Pogba and Lukaku and Martial are the ones who need to hear the wrath of the crowd for their halfhearted efforts.

9.) 22 Jul 2019 07:49:38
Well said RDA.

Our defenders have scored 3 goals, Young, Lindelof and Williams.
Midfield have scored 7, with Mata, Lingard, Pereira and McTominay.
Forwards have scored 39 between Martial, Rashford and Greenwood.

Who would have thought that Sneijder could have been topped.

Whilst we as supporters may not be privy to the inner workings of Manchester United, from the outside it does look like the football side of the business is incredibly incompetent, with nobody seeming to want to take responsibility to sort it out.

Confidence is they major takeaway from yesterday. Having said that the space the Tranmere defence gave United on the edge of the area was criminal.

Dont understand the bitterness, its Liverpool's time good luck to them. It should however make us more determined to knock them back off their perch next year.

Bielsa could be entertaining, doesn't he have a history of falling out with the management board over transfer dealings.
