If the media are to be believed Max philippe is interested in joining utd and would cost 40m euros. If it is true I would move Shaw on. Max is young, and was the best lb in the bundesleague last year.

The second spurious article I have seen suggests Jose would like to purchase Mbappe. I don't see it my self, but it would make sense as he can play as a RW or a back up striker. How about martial to PSG with Mbappe coming the other way?

1.) 11 Jun 2018 16:58:03
every time we buy the best player in that league for that particular position it goes tits up.

2.) 11 Jun 2018 17:16:59
the last players we bought who were considered the best in their leagues were of Ruud Vanistelroy, Jaap Stam, Andy Cole, Rio Ferdinand. Since then we have focused on potential such as Rooney, ronaldo, Evra, Vidic, deGea.

Out of the players above considered amongst the best in their league, which one was not a success?

The last player considered to be the best in his league (the bundesleague) in his position to come to the EPL was KDB and he has not done too badly. I promise you this max Phillippe will be a success with whoever signs him and I would rather it was us.

3.) 11 Jun 2018 17:18:36
I think Max has the potential to be a good signing.
Good left foot and can cross a ball! Ed 002 mentioned him as an outside chance a month or so ago.

4.) 11 Jun 2018 17:27:18
Bolger meant Kagawa and Mhiki.

5.) 11 Jun 2018 17:34:20
i was more speaking about the German league we've not had much luck.

but I've never seen him play so can't make a judgement on him.

{Ed002's Note - Nor can any of you get his name right.}

6.) 11 Jun 2018 17:20:34
Would any of the Ed’s care to provide their take on max’s Potential?

{Ed004's Note - I have never seen him play}

7.) 11 Jun 2018 19:28:26
Good player but Not the best left back in the German league. Jonas Hector was the stand out left back over the past season. He’s brilliant.

8.) 12 Jun 2018 00:12:45
Max is a great crosser of the ball with 12 assists last season. Lukaku would thrive of his service. Would be happy if we looked at him.



06 Apr 2018 11:13:10
So Madrid are interested in Martial, Pogba and surprise surprise DeGea.

I would actually consider selling them Pogba. If they want rid of Kroos then yes please, but it will Kroos and Varane for Pogba. It would be nice to be able to pull their pants down for a change. If Mbappe is worth £160m after 1 decent season I would suggest Pogba is worth as much if not more. The same goes for Martial. Mbappe has only done it in league 1 (pub league) .

I would try and replace Pogba with SMS. Pogba is clearly a naturally more gifted player, but SMS just seems to have a much better work ethic.

With SMS and Kroos in midfield with Matic, that would be a balanced midfield. Kroos might actually mean we can take a decent corner.

If we were to sell martial, I would only do so with a buy back clause at a reasonable price. So if Jose leaves and we get a more progressive attacking manager in we have an option to get the lad back.

1.) 06 Apr 2018 11:55:02
You make it sound likes its as easy as swapping football stickers.

2.) 06 Apr 2018 12:34:50
I don’t think it is as easy as swapping stickers, but if they want something we have why not ask for what we want. Or should we just bend over and say sure, take what you want.

Pogba is young, skill full and marketable and we all know how much Madrid like a galactic o.

They did not mind messing us around over moratta last summer. Setting a price then moving the goal posts. Ultimately that worked out as we got Lukaku.

3.) 06 Apr 2018 14:52:04
pogba worth more than 160 mil after 2 lame seasons? lol he doesn't get picked in front of mctominay.

4.) 06 Apr 2018 15:04:33
Oh look another Liverpool fan who has got lost and found their way onto the United page. I don’t think any footballer is worth £160m, but the market dictates the price.

Nothing worth commenting on on your own page. I thought you would all be patting yourself on the back stating that next year will be your year.

Until a big club comes and takes your best player a la coutinho. Salad to Madrid or Barcelona anybody?

On that point pogba is worth much more than coutinho, so coutinho £140m pogba £.

My point being if Mbappe is worth £160m in the current market after 1 season surely Paul Pogba is at least worth the same money at much more than coutinho.

5.) 06 Apr 2018 15:06:12
Jesus if they offered 160 million for Pogba I would drive him to Madrid.

6.) 06 Apr 2018 15:07:29
Oh wow Swishcleaner, you took the time to set up a troll account. Liverpool fan with no comments made before today. I feel bad for you.

7.) 06 Apr 2018 15:24:51
No first time here, same account as all the rumours sites on here. I was just poiting out the ridiculous statement. Fees are decided by the needs of a team generally and if anyone can honestly say they think pogbas value has almost doubled based on what other players sold for with arguably greater potential they are insane. I don’t care that he plays for man utd. It’s irrelevant . If anything his value had gone down. He was over priced to start with and shown nothing on the last 2 years to say any different.

8.) 06 Apr 2018 16:07:00
Fee's are dictated by a teams needs but he was overpriced, a bit contradictory. I agree we over paid. But based on Neymar, Mbappe, VvD etc we would be expecting 100 plus.

9.) 06 Apr 2018 16:19:20
So we would swap pogba a player most class as lazy. For kroos another player a lot class as lazy without the pace of pogba yes he can pass well. But the need for pace and power in midfield was shown by liverpool on wednesday night. Half our problem is players wandering around we don't need more of the same.

10.) 06 Apr 2018 17:21:04
I agree to a point W16wes hence I suggested SMS for the drive and penetration. Kroos is there for corners and pin point passing which will hopefully pick out lukaku and rashford/ Martial/ Sanchez / new RW movement.

As I said no player is really worth £160m. Prices are dictated by the market and as stated above the pogba, Neymar, Mbappe, coutinho, vvd moves show the market prices have inflated further. Hence pogba price has gone up. Let’s see what he does at the World Cup. I suspect given his last performance for France he will do well. Let’s see what that does for his price.

11.) 06 Apr 2018 19:15:02
Got not got-need -a shiny for a shiny😲😲.



09 Jan 2018 14:31:59
Not sure how reliable, but canal+ are reporting Lucas Moura has agreed to join utd with the clubs working on the fee.

BS. I have no idea. Time will tell.

1.) 09 Jan 2018 15:33:27
Heard the same red glory reporting we have had a bid of 17.5 mil accepted. like u don't no if it's bs or not.

2.) 09 Jan 2018 15:33:50
Surely he can’t agree to join if we haven’t agreed a fee?

3.) 09 Jan 2018 16:24:46
That's fee doesn't quite sound right.

A question for the Ed's or anyone else who knows.

Lucas Moura was named in PSG's UCL squad, but hasn't played a single minute. If he was to move to another team in the UCL could he play for them in the UCL this season or not?

4.) 09 Jan 2018 17:19:11

A substitute player who has not been fielded is entitled to play for another club competing in the UEFA Champions League or UEFA Europa League in the course of the same season.

5.) 09 Jan 2018 17:57:21
Cheers OxfordDevil, I thought that would probably be the case as it is with domestic cups. However I wasn't sure as UEFA and the FA's rules don't always align.

If he is able to play in all competitions potentially signing him makes more sense especially for the reported 17.5m.

For me Lucas Moura reminds me of Nani, very quick with a few tricks up his sleeve. On his day totally unplayable. However, he also seems to lack the consistency to make the jump from very good player to world class just like Nani.

6.) 09 Jan 2018 21:45:07
Caolan, sometimes the fee is the last thing to be agreed upon.

7.) 10 Jan 2018 00:08:59
I really hope this is a sick joke Moura nowhere near good enough we need starters not squad players.

8.) 10 Jan 2018 03:57:32
That post reminded me of something I was thinking about recently. The most skilled player we’ve ever had is Nani. Hear me out. I’m not saying he’s the best, obviously, bc he had feet of magic and a head of rocks but in terms of technical skill, flair and simple unplayability when having one of his rare top performances, not even Ronaldo was on his level. There’s a reason his top ten goals is astounding while he was always the most frustrating player in the squad. I’d love to hear feedback, but I think it’s a fair statement. If the poor guy could hit a decent cross into the box or find the right pass at the right moment he could have been incredible. But it always just seemed like his feet were Champions League and his head was nonleague. Or worse.

9.) 10 Jan 2018 08:45:11
Nani is not the most skilled player ever to play for Manchester United nor is he in the top 10 most skilled player to ever play for Manchester United.

10.) 10 Jan 2018 08:55:39
All knowing Ken who is in United top 10 skilful players? If Nani doesn’t make the list he would come very close. Don’t let your favouritism misguide you, Nani was very skilful but did not end up being the player United had hoped. Then again he was no Depay.

11.) 10 Jan 2018 09:02:47
I still liked Nani though. We don’t have anyone who is a bag of tricks.
If Jose wants Moura and sees something in him let’s get it done. We are woefully short on the right side and all our attacks come down the left or funnel through the middle. At least this way we might stretch our opponents little more and give teams something more to worry about. Lukaku has shown what he can do if we get good crosses into the box!

12.) 10 Jan 2018 09:11:49
I'd take Moura over Bernardo Silva.

13.) 10 Jan 2018 09:40:18
I would place Nani in the top ten most skilful players to have played for United in my life time at least. I still fondly remember him making mugs of half the Arsenal team by juggling the ball. It’s even more impressive when you consider he was up against professionals at the top of their game not 48 year old Sunday league old hacks.
When he was on form he was unplayable, the speed in which he changed directions left players in knots.
Unfortunately the days he was on top form were few and far between. He had two seasons where he looked like he was going to kick on, then he got injured and before he could fully recover and get up to speed Sir Alex retired and Moyes took over. Moyes was never going to be a fan of Nani and he slumped into obscurity. A sad end for a player with so much talent.

14.) 10 Jan 2018 10:18:45
Nani best ever? George Best, Bobby Charlton, Ryan Giggs, Ronnie, Big Duncan Edwards all better and it took five seconds to name just those five.

15.) 10 Jan 2018 11:10:31
hendonred, the discussion was about "most skilled", not "best". They are two very different things, and Nani was more skilled than any of those 5, although I think most would agree they were all better players than him.

I'm not sure he was our most skillful player, but if not, he was certainly close. Absolute magic to watch on his best days, few and far between though they were.

While I'd like it to be someone a bit more consistent, we could do with having a player who can pull that kind of trickery.

16.) 10 Jan 2018 11:24:16
I have to disagree. I don't think that Nani could lace George Best's boots.

17.) 10 Jan 2018 12:28:55
Nani more skilful than best. Check that one quick Thorne. That's outrageous.

18.) 10 Jan 2018 12:38:53
Ha ha . give your head a wobble . Nani and George Best were not even in the same orbit . Did you ever see Best play?

Daftest thing ever written on here.

19.) 10 Jan 2018 12:50:49
I don't think Nani is more skillful than Best. Very few in the history of football could rival Best.

However I said Nani was definitely in the top ten most skillful players in my life time, and I stand by that.

There is a difference between skillful and being the best. The best perform week in week out and they achieve great things. For example Forlan was a more skillful players than van Nistelrooy, RVN however achieved far more. Phil Neville was more skillful than Gary Neville. It isn't about what they achieved but how much talent and skill they had.

For me in my life time Scholes, Ronaldo Giggs and possibly Pogba are the ones who have the same or greater natural talent than Nani. If I was old enough to remember Best during his playing days then he would be there obviously as well, as would Charlton and Edwards.

Its such a shame Nani never fulfilled his potential.

20.) 10 Jan 2018 15:26:53
I've seen it reported that the fee is closer to 35mil, don't know if that's in Euros or pounds though. Would seem a little closer to his value in this market.

If we're getting a player from PSG, I'd much prefer Draxler mind.

21.) 10 Jan 2018 16:58:58
You've all forgotten that Bebe had mad skills.

22.) 10 Jan 2018 18:34:41
Define skill maze?
Is passing a skill? Is running a skill? Is positional awareness a skill? Is tavkeling a skill?

I think all the above are skills.

Do you lack the intelligence to understand that or are you just talking stepovers?

As for someone posting nani was more skilful than best that is just displaying complete ignorance.

23.) 10 Jan 2018 18:50:26

Not much difference between euros and pounds anymore mate so wouldn’t matter.

24.) 10 Jan 2018 19:01:31
There is a fellow that doea ball juggling outside the Trafford centre every Saturday . Great skills sign him up Shappy.
Consistency is a skill. Maybe nani is in the top 10 most inconsistent players at united ever.

25.) 10 Jan 2018 21:48:00
This is in my most ridiculous top 10 threads ever!



06 Jan 2018 23:22:09
Good evening Ed's, if you have the time, is there any validity to the reported Man Utd interest in Fred from Shaktar Donetsk?

Thank you in advance for any response.

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}

1.) 08 Jan 2018 17:17:37
We don't need him, we already have Fred the red. lol.



30 Jul 2016 20:36:12
Hi Ed's,
Do any of you know if media reports that Januzaj has asked to leave the club permanently after being told he could go out on loan are true?


{Ed001's Note - Januzaj has been available for a permanent transfer since last season. The club want him out due to attitude issues.}

1.) 02 Aug 2016 07:33:35
I have never seen anything great in Januzaj. Apart from a couple of goals and some decent display of skills, he has not performed well enough to get more chances. He may have potential but I think he doesn't deserve to be given more time here. That's my opinion on Adnan.

2.) 02 Aug 2016 08:06:11
Do you know the actual issues Ed?

{Ed001's Note - doesn't work hard enough on or off the pitch. One of those youngsters who thinks he has made it and so wants to enjoy the riches.}

3.) 02 Aug 2016 08:09:01
He's a young lad given too much too soon. One day he will realise but let's hope it's not too late. Elite sportsmen make it to the top not only because of their skill, but also their mental strength. Adnan clearly lacks the latter which is a real shame.

4.) 02 Aug 2016 08:39:38
It might be another PP situation for Adnan where he needs to go elsewhere and knuckledown in order to realise his potential. I fear the same for Memphis. Driving around the city centre in a Rolls Royce and parking wherever he wants hardly relates to the people of Manchester.

5.) 02 Aug 2016 09:20:20
I think it all started to go downhill when he was touted as the "saviour" of United by the media during the Moyes wilderness years and it all went to his head.

Agree about Memohis also - has echoes of Zaha.

6.) 02 Aug 2016 09:46:53
I remember on the Moyes pre season tour seeing Januzaj play 3-4 supberb passes from central midfield, then in Rio s testimonial a few weeks later his run down the right all the way into the area from inside his own half and thinking this kid could really be special - shame he seems to have lost his way.

I honestly thought Jose could bring out the best in him but it seems his days are numbered.

7.) 02 Aug 2016 18:44:40
Good evening ed, s. Are you aware if we have a back up plan, Should the Pogba deal not go ahead.

{Ed004's Note - I think Matuidi and Gomes were seen as alternatives to Pogba this summer}




Huggy76's banter posts with other poster's replies to Huggy76's banter posts


12 Oct 2018 17:35:32
Given how little Phil I trip over my own feet Jones and Marcos Rojo play for united I would like to see them moved on in January.

I would love to see the club peruse the likes of De Ligt from Ajax and Felix Uduokhai at Wolfsburg.

I know they are both young, but I think they both have massive potential. I was really impressed with De Ligt when we played Ajax in the Europa League final. I thought he really stood out.

I know some would prefer the likes of Toby Alderweireld or another experienced pro, but I would prefer to see us picking up an emerging talent. De Ligt has played at a high level and stood out. I know the Dutch league is seen as weak, but Stam, van nistelrooy, overmars van Persie to name a few all came to the EPL and did well. Let's get back to the club that showed faith in emerging talent rather than a last big pay day for an ageing star.

Phil Jones and Rojo have had their chance, have collected big wages and have rarely turned up and justified those wages. All they are good for is keeping the medical team busy.

Who would you like to see come in?

1.) 12 Oct 2018 18:41:08
The best centre back we could get is Kalidou Kouilbaly. I agree De Ligt will most likely be world class sooner rather than later, but I Koulibaly would be perfect in my opinion.

2.) 12 Oct 2018 18:50:14
Agree with the philosophy.

There has been talk previously about Milan Skriniar and Alessio Romagnoli, who are both 23 and so fit the profile of the other players that you mentioned above.

3.) 12 Oct 2018 18:53:22
Koulibaly is an awesome defender and would have no issue with the physicality of the premiership. He would cost a frightening amount of money.

4.) 12 Oct 2018 21:13:29
When Eric Bailey came in everyone was excited by the potential. He did well till last season and was in everyone's potential team. This season a little dip in form and half the people have already discarded him as a flop. People now want a brand new CB. How long do you think it will take the fans to come to the conclusion that de ligt isn't going to make it in this league ( if we somehow manage to sign him) .
I still consider that Bailey is one of the best CB in our league and Lindelof is always improving. If our team is pinned back for 80 minutes in a match and we expect our defenders to keep soaking all the pressure then it's too much. You can think of the 2 best CBs ever to have touched the ball and place them in our team and I guarantee that they will make mistakes if we keep playing this brand of football.

5.) 12 Oct 2018 23:00:31
Sailor, nobody mentioned bailey or Lindelof. I said given how often jones and Rojo are injured/ unavailable I would move them on. And given modern football is a squad game I was saying I would rather we brought in potential. This would allow the likes of bailey and Lindelof to establish themselves as the senior defenders whilst the potential rotate in and out and get experience. They then can take on the senior role in a few seasons as bailey and Lindelof get older.

At the moment we lack depth that can be relied on. Jones comes in for a few games and either trips over his own feet or injured himself.

I agree that bailey looked good last season, but after many injuries he lost momentum and Jose’s confidence. I am a little concerned by his injuries especially when his game is based on being so physical, as likely to pick up more injuries.

6.) 13 Oct 2018 00:03:10
Huggy i agree. I tgink we have a good 14 or 15 but that we have 6 or so players that make little or no contribution or impact and provide no competition to those ahead of them. And when we do have to rely on them they are not up to the task.
You mention jones rojo but i think you can add darmian young valencia and herrera to that list.
I like herrera best out of that bunch and white smalling and fellaini do play ok they imo are not good enough over a season to be playing 20 plus games and compete to win a league. They have all been here 4 plus years and are either well past their best or not going to improve enough to be regular starters big money tied up in qages for players not making an impact often enough.

7.) 13 Oct 2018 07:10:35
Spot on ken, the only thing i disagree on is “white Smalling” (only kidding, got to love auto correct) .

8.) 13 Oct 2018 07:38:28
Skriniar looks like a very good player from what I've seen of him, as does De Ligt. Upamecano is another young but very promising player who looks like he will become an excellent defender.

Even though we clearly need a bit of a clear out in defence with the likes of Jones, Smalling, Darmian and Rojo all not being good enough in my opinion plus we also have Young and Valencia being out of contract, hoping Shaw signs an extension. Surely if even half of the above leave we need so PL experience in defence? I'd go back to Spurs for Alderweireld in January or the summer as well as looking to bring in someone like De Ligt, Skriniar or Upamecano. We will also need to address right back and sign another left back to either back up Shaw or replace him if he leaves.

Baring in mind that is just the defence, it's a huge rebuild of a squad.

9.) 13 Oct 2018 09:59:53
Thats all great but if Jose stays we all know he's not going for a young cb with potential.
He wants experience and a level head. Someone with the ability to bring the ball into midfield and play. Hence why he plays midfielders at the back. Smalling, Jones and as much as I rate him, Bailey all give the ball away too easy. Lindeloff I havnt decided on yet but prepared to give him time.
We need a Rio. Someone who can read the game but have the confidence to stroll into midfield and switch the play if needed. Football has moved on. Defenders don't just defend. As same as now gks are the start of an attack these days, defenders are an important part of the transition. If the defence is coming into midfield it gives our attacking players a chance to get higher up the pitch and stretch teams. We all know we have fantastic attacking players but I am so bored of seeing Lukaku 40 yards out trying, with his back to goal trying to hold a ball up.

10.) 13 Oct 2018 13:59:07
At one point in the summer it looked like rojo and Smalling might have been on their way. When that didn't happen it was probably the biggest disappointment. There's too many average players here and between January an July we need to clear the decks. For me the biggest disappointment would be a new manager coming in and declaring everyone gets a clean state. We know who the underperformers are and need to get them moving on.



18 Sep 2018 19:47:34
Wow, every time I see Icardi play he is the apitomy of efficiency. One chance, one goal. I would love him at utd, but I suspect he would cost £150m+ if you could convince inter to sell (not likely) .

1.) 18 Sep 2018 21:44:44
Nonsense, he isn't good enough and not what we need right now. We need Sanchez to benchwarm the next few games.

2.) 19 Sep 2018 06:54:49
Or how about Sanchez to score a few instead to get him up and running?

3.) 19 Sep 2018 07:29:24
Does anyone else think that Sanchez forward running drops the opposition defence back a few yards thus creating most of out attacks? Played 3 won 3 with Alexis in the side, lost when he hasn’t played, maybe his underlying stats and effort has a greater influence than we see.

4.) 19 Sep 2018 08:56:24
No - he is was a big mistake of a signing.

5.) 19 Sep 2018 13:47:45

Yes, his runs have been brilliant the last couple of games and he has improved massively in my opinion. I went to the Burnley game and from our position behind the goal we could see the runs he was making that were often not noticed by other players but do make defenders think. He is a clever player and he is trying hard, I feel like he isn't far away from getting the results like he got in pre-season.

People have made their mind up on him clearly, once that happens they stop seeing any good things people do and only focus on the negatives which is a shame, he could be a world beater for us in the coming couple of years.

6.) 19 Sep 2018 16:57:41
Bang on Welsh.



15 Sep 2018 13:43:46
I am convinced Vorm is really Karius in disguise playing for spurs against Liverpool today.

1.) 15 Sep 2018 14:14:08
The second goal was bizarre.



10 Aug 2018 08:30:33
Oh well another summer of media lies and being linked to every player under the sun over. I must say I am disappointed Sandro was not signed.
In terms of the manager, I hope he buckled down and gets the best out of what we have, but based on his past behaviour I suspect he will be even grumpier than before and throw a few more players under the bus. Let's not forget we are not the only club to have an awful window, spurs had a stinker as well. Let's see how potchetino reacts compared to Jose.
I suspect with a little more grace. I wouldn't mind seeing potch being brought in to replace Jose. I know many on here will say he has not won anything, but he has improved a young spurs squad moved them up the table whilst operating on a small budget and with a restrictive wage structure. I think he would do wonders with our youth whilst also playing the United way and being able to attract top players when required.
As the saying goes a leopard can't change his spots and Jose's history suggests a melt down by xmas, let's hope the board put a bit more thought into the clubs direction of travel and that we have a manager who fits those ideals lined up. The current approach is not working!



07 Aug 2018 14:08:30
Hey Barcelona, if Coutinho is worth £140m, then Pogba is worth £200m+, and as jerry Macguire said "SHOW ME THE MONEY".

It's a no for now, but come back in January if you are serious. If your short of cash we can settle on Dembele + £100m. Have a nice day.

1.) 07 Aug 2018 14:58:26
Barca offered a bit of cash and Mina and Gomes for Pogba. If we are stupid enough to take them on, then woodward and mourinho have to be sacked. Gomes is utter tripe.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 15:32:20
Coutinho is in a different class to Pogba.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 16:48:36
Really Seosahm,

How many World Cups has he won?

Just saying.

{Ed001's Note - ah the idiots reply! Bringing up trophies in a team sport to try and suggest one player is better than another. Only the refuge of those without a bloody clue. I suppose that means Pogba must be better than Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and George Best by this idiotic way of thinking...}

That's a ridiculous way to judge a player.

It's certainly comparing apples with oranges in any case. Coutinho for me has shown signs of and demonstrated true class on at least a semi-consistent to consistent basis. Pogba simply has not, he still may however.

Over from the Liverpool page, would have Coutinho over Pogba all day long. I am not biased as I can say you guys have the best keeper in the world in De Gea, to me at times he doesn't seem human. Pogba situation as I see it is that if he wants to leave let him go, you only got to look at us to see what keeping hold of an unhappy player leads to (Coutinho) .

Totally agree alonso, don't think your being biased at all. he does not want to be here, never did. I would go as far as to say coutinho gave more of a crap about your club than Pogba does ours.
Pogba only cares about self promotion, a shame, he will come good at some stage I think, it will just not be until he reaches the age of 28 or so.

Well said Ed. Trolls need to stay under their bridges waiting for the billy goat gruffs.

I would be delighted if the all renewed their contracts. In terms of Sanchez, I would offer him to Athletico Madrid. If Griezman does leave this summer Sanchez would be a good replacement for them. I suspect he would be happier in a Spanish speaking country. Someone would like his work ethic, the only problem might be his wishes.

I just don’t see where Sanchez fits at Utd. I suspect he doesn’t want to play on the right. He wants left wing or up front. I am sorry but rashford all day long as striker and Martial is left wing first choice so it’s thank you and good bye to Sanchez. He has had 12mths to prove his worth and has failed to do so.

It is typical of Man Utd and it is where we differ from Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern, juventus, real and Barca. We know koulibaly is one of the pieces of the puzzle we need, that skrinar is a close second, but we won’t do what is required to get them. Let’s verpool did what was required to get van dyke and it’s paying dividends.

Come on Utd, developer a strategy, identify your targets (including a desire to sign for the club) and go and get them. Enough of this cheap skating and opting for option 3 or 4 because we either had unrealistic targets or weren’t prepared to pay the price.

Why not bring him home and rotate with matic and at Rb give him some game time between now and the end of the season. At least then we will know if he can be good enough or not. Let’s be honest he can’t be any worse than Valencia based on yesterday’s performance and at least TFM has a bit more pace than matic.

Get Eric Steele back as well. Great bloke and he had a fantastic relationship with Dave the save. Went so far as to learn Spanish to help him settle and played a major part in the decision to recruit Dave.

Oh how great it was to watch an exciting game, to not be in a bad mood, to dread watching the next game as you knew you would be frustrated, bored and angry.

Yes it was Cardiff, but we have been awful and even lost to lower teams.

My one concern was Martial did not look happy. I hope it was because he didn’t want to be subbed. Ole make him feel special, because he is special and we need him for the penetration speed and power he brings.

The tragic thing is we are now resorting to “Next year will be our season” oh how the mighty have fallen!

Today was woeful, we offered nothing. Without wishing to sound dramatic, if we do not change how we are operated so we seem a marked improvement in recruitment and a balanced team, if this decline continues I would not be surprised to see us being a bottom half club rather than fighting for top 4 and titles.

I would love leonardo jardim, he plays attacking football, has shown good tactical knowledge and has brought through youth players.

I accept he might not speak good English, if any at all, but with Herrera, mata, degea, rojo, Sanchez all speaking Spanish as well as the club being able to bring in translators I don’t see communication being a problem.

Anything that takes us back towards our cloud traditions of brining through youth, wing play and attacking football will be a move in the right direction.

Don’t get me wrong though, changing manager will not be a miricale cure. We need to modernise our structure, we need a coherent plan (scouting, style of play, short term, medium term and long term targets) .

At the moment we are like a lottery winner who accepts the publicity to announce their win. Everybody knows we are cash rich, that we will over pay and that we don’t know true class/ quality from an overpriced sparkly piece of crap.

In my personal opinion I would like to Jose move on. He is a bad fit for the club, he doesn’t really want to be here and the board won’t give him what he needs to succeed. On that basis it is best for all parties to part way and ideally now so the new manager can come in now and assess the squad between now and Xmas. He then will know what he needs in the transfer market. Why let Jose spend money and then sack him in March.

Sailor, nobody mentioned bailey or Lindelof. I said given how often jones and Rojo are injured/ unavailable I would move them on. And given modern football is a squad game I was saying I would rather we brought in potential. This would allow the likes of bailey and Lindelof to establish themselves as the senior defenders whilst the potential rotate in and out and get experience. They then can take on the senior role in a few seasons as bailey and Lindelof get older.

At the moment we lack depth that can be relied on. Jones comes in for a few games and either trips over his own feet or injured himself.

I agree that bailey looked good last season, but after many injuries he lost momentum and Jose’s confidence. I am a little concerned by his injuries especially when his game is based on being so physical, as likely to pick up more injuries.
