Reports saying our bid for Josh King has been turned down by Bournemouth.

GrimisnotDead

1.) 31 Jan 2020 06:21:55
The very Josh King that used to play for us?


2.) 31 Jan 2020 08:14:36
Would prefer him then Slimani.


3.) 31 Jan 2020 08:37:07
i don't rate him what so ever. would he offer more than martial?

somtimes martial can be fantastic but he always drifts in and out of games for me.


im unsure on king don't think he would improve us.


4.) 31 Jan 2020 08:49:06
Agree don't want him I like the look of william jose looks half decent big and strong and knows where the net is.


5.) 31 Jan 2020 09:26:37
Martial has been given the No.9 shirt and a massive new deal.

When fit he will be the first choice central striker.

We aren't looking for a world class first choice striker to come in.

We need a rotation option who offers something different, ideally a back to goal striker who can bring others into the game.

Giroud would be the ideal signing, I just can't see Chelsea selling to a rival and if they would I see Spurs ahead of us in the queue due to Giroud preferring to stay in London.


6.) 31 Jan 2020 09:57:59
I think Chelsea will rather sell to us than Tottenham. plus Giroud knows he has a better chance of getting playing time with us over the next 12 months. Given his age he will also want a final pay day which we can offer better than Tottenham.
THe only issue is we are not interested.


7.) 31 Jan 2020 10:02:25
Some of you may have seen The Masked signer on TV (yeah, quality I know! ), and would have seen Teddy Sheringham as the 'tree'.

If we wanted to sign a tree, maybe we could sign him again. Be a cheaper option than Giroud.


8.) 31 Jan 2020 10:10:13
Shappy,

Martial lacks consistency. Also you said when he is fit. He is quite injury prone. He needs to be more aggressive. At times he is like a other Pogba, hands on his hips.


9.) 31 Jan 2020 10:53:25
I don’t rate Martial at all.

If we had sold him and held onto Rom, we’d be in a much better position this year. Martial is just a confused player, doesn’t have the instincts to make it as a striker and hasn’t worked hard enough to improve his wing play.


10.) 31 Jan 2020 11:14:26
I think Martial is a better player than many give him credit for. That said, he doesn't look like he will become the world class striker he looked like he would grow in to during his first season at the club.

He is a good at linking up play and is the most clinical striker at the club (Greenwood not withstanding as he is in his debut season and isn't ready to be first choice starting striker every week) . He doesn't make enough selfless runs or gambling runs.

In the right set up and tactics he can be a very good striker. Considering this season we have struggled to create good goalscoring chances, and Martial has spent time out injured (which often means a player needs a game or two to play themselves back into form) . Martial has 8 goals in 1458 minutes which is a goal every 182 minutes or a goal every other game. Which is a solid scoring rate. If he hand't been injured and we had been creating more and better goalscoring chances he could be close to being one of the top scorers in the league.

The real issue with Martial is his injury record. He just can't stay fit for a whole season. That's why we need another central striker, with Rashford struggling centrally and Greenwood being a year or two away from being ready to step into that role.

My favourite person for that role would be Raul Jimenez, but he certainly won't be available mid-season. So someone like Giroud for 18 months would be a great option to allow Greenwood time to grow into the role.

Shaps, you need to change your name to Stato. Or get a hobby.

I have it on good authority that Woodward upped the offer on Fernandes when Ole threatened to bring back Alexis next season at the press conference this morning.

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.

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.

GrimisnotDead

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
Varane.


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

BBC reporting Lukaku to Inter will not happen.

GrimisnotDead

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.

With Leicester's current form, anyone else think 3rd is becoming a distinct possibility.

GrimisnotDead

1.) 28 Feb 2020 22:29:51
Not for us 😂 seriously though 2 places could now be up for grabs if their form continues.


2.) 29 Feb 2020 05:53:01
Last game of the season against Leciester, could be a good Champioms League decider if we finally find some consistency.

Could be our lowest premier league points total since 13/ 14.

If we pick up wins against Watford, Brighton, Bournemouth, Villa, Palace, Southampton and West Ham that leaves us with 54 points (fingers crossed) .

Then we are relying on getting points from City and Sheff Utd at home and Chelsea, Everton, Spurs and Leicester away, and its away where we have struggled this year with only 3 wins.

GrimisnotDead

1.) 08 Feb 2020 22:19:06
We've struggled completely mate. Our form on the whole is a problem! Lost to Burnley and Palace at home. Our most impressive win of the season came away from home. Chelsea is an absolute must win or we are on a rapid downward spiral.


2.) 09 Feb 2020 05:02:36
We will start winning.
The likes of Lingy, Chongy, Rashy will get us far.


3.) 09 Feb 2020 07:10:30
Ole's 34 matches in PL as permanent manager

• 11 W, 10D, 13L
• 11 games we failed to score a goal
• 5 clean sheets
• 1.26 goals scored, 1.23 goals conceded per game
• 3/ 16 wins away from home (18%)
• 8/ 18 wins at home (44%)
• 32% win rate overall

Fred thinks he is improving so we are ok.

The sentimental tosh has got the better of the decision makers when it comes to this manager.

Who needs points when you can wallow in sentiment?


4.) 09 Feb 2020 07:23:36
It is quite amazing really. Everton moved above us yesterday having been in the relegation mix, so how could such a change like that happen? Maybe because Carlo Ancelotti is a three-time Champions League winner and has lifted league titles as a manager in Italy, England, France and Germany. Meanwhile at Old Trafford?


5.) 09 Feb 2020 10:47:11
Did Ole not do the same when he first came in?


6.) 09 Feb 2020 11:13:12
Nou

As a temp but not as a permanent manager. Ancelotti’s previous tells you he can maintain it. Ole’s previous tells you he can’t.


7.) 09 Feb 2020 11:17:54
Maybe we should change our manager every 8 weeks and keep riding the bounces😂.


8.) 09 Feb 2020 12:00:54
He did. However Ole has no major European or league titles on his CV either. Ancelotti is leagues above him.


9.) 09 Feb 2020 12:18:33
The big difference between Ancelotti’s start and Ole’s is the trajectory.

When Ole arrived there was an immediate and dramatic shift in performances - i. e. the players upped their game. This was prior to Ole having any time to coach the team or implement his ideas. Basically the players excelled because Jose was sacked, not because Ole was the manager.

In contrast, Everton have seen progressive improvement - i. e. the more time Ancelotti has been in charge, the better the team have performed. It remains to be seen if they will maintain this progress over the rest of the season, but it is obvious that the more time Ole has had to implement his ideas, the worse the team has performed.


10.) 09 Feb 2020 14:05:28
There's obviously no comparisons between the previous success of both managers. That wasn't my point. Carlo's previous may mean he maintains his upward trajectory, but there's no guarantees. I'd still be very surprised if they're still above us come the end of the season. I know I may pay for that remark, but it's still very early days at Goodison.


11.) 09 Feb 2020 16:54:34
Oh no if people have to pay for wrong opinions we are all in real trouble😂😂😂.

There are many factors involved probably. Every player is different, it's up to the manager how to identify how to get the best out of them.

Will be a shame to see Lingard go, a combination of off field issues and a coach who doesn't believe in him has probably finished his United career. Will hopefully get back on track where ever he ends up.

Bruno has made a huge difference, not only on the pitch but his mentality to win and push the team forward. Ighalo has also been positive, showing what a natural striker can do rather than a converted winger. I'm hopeful he can do enough to get a contract extension.

As Bruno said after the game, we can never be happy with a draw. Nice to have some of that mentality back at the club.
