I've heard from a very good source here in cork that ole has had a meeting with Roy Keane a few weeks back, about a coaching role at the club, he even went to keanes house. Keane was interested but there's someone at the club who is trying to block it, I wonder who that could be.

Now I thought a manager can pick his own coaching staff, or is ole just a yes man.
A good appointment in my mind and if it goes wrong for ole everyone can blame Keane.

Leahy, he may have been a great player but I’m not sure his coaching credentials stand. He’d scare the crap out of them obviously but is that enough?

3.) 09 Aug 2019 22:31:27
Thank god there’s at least someone at the club with enough sense to knock that on the head.

4.) 10 Aug 2019 06:37:46
We should have Rio Ferdinand as a coach for me. Keane is a bit marmite as a coach, fine if you want someone to give the players brutal truths but not sure beyond that. He left us under a cloud saying what he thought in an MUTV interview if I remember rightly, so can you imagine what he might do now? Rio for me.

5.) 10 Aug 2019 08:10:12
Not sure why Keano would come back as a coach. Surely he wants to be the boss somewhere again.

6.) 10 Aug 2019 11:12:06
Not sure if he'd be a good influence at the club. Too old school and stubborn to change approach.

7.) 10 Aug 2019 11:46:22
I think the replies are missing the point.

I’m not convinced of Keane as a coach, but Ole should have control over his coaching team.

8.) 10 Aug 2019 12:04:58
With all due respect to Leahy, you're all making judgements on a rumour. This is how the urban myth of Ole being a yes man gathers steam. None of us knows what goes on behind the scenes, but repeat something like this enough times, and people start accepting it as fact.

And you know that's not a dig at you, Leahy.

9.) 10 Aug 2019 18:10:37
Nou, ed002 would seem to know and that's exactly what he says OGS is.

10.) 10 Aug 2019 18:24:43
NC99 Jose wanted Evra, Ed Woodward blocked it. The point isn't a myth, there is a element of truth.

Every rumour that seems to be a negative is a load of nonsense but when something positive comes about its fact.

11.) 10 Aug 2019 22:07:08
And I tend to treat all rumours as rubbish, until I hear it from the horse's mouth 😁.

12.) 10 Aug 2019 22:48:38
Ed002 is as good as nou 😁.

13.) 10 Aug 2019 23:43:30
FZZ, what's Jose having Evra blocked, got anything to do with Ole being a yes man?

14.) 11 Aug 2019 14:11:01
Keane is an awful coach and manager. Great player great pundit but no idea how to manage a football team.



16 Feb 2019 19:34:38
Ed002 how are you, Ed I was just wandering have man United any interest in joao felix.


1.) 16 Feb 2019 21:39:28
I don't think 002 Is talking to me😎
Anyway he is a good one for the future, would look good with the young talent we will have coming through in the next few years.

{Ed002's Note - I missed this sorry. Manchester United remain keen on an embarrassing number of JM targets and yes Felix I’d one.}

2.) 16 Feb 2019 22:28:30
Cheers Ed,

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

3.) 16 Feb 2019 23:50:46
Why would it be embarrassing? Surely they paid JM to make such recommendations would seem to mad to disregard his input as he a top level coach and football manager.

{Ed002's Note - It is embarrassing as the club gave him little support and are now making a joke of themselves chasing after the targets he identified.}

4.) 17 Feb 2019 09:38:10
I see your point but think Jose made it so hard for people to back him it makes sense too.

5.) 17 Feb 2019 01:43:29
Surely just because JM happened to agree with many other pundits scouts and supporters on some of the best talent around in world football doesn’t mean that they are looking to pursue ‘his’ targets after firing him. There are more opinions than JM’s and it is possible for those opinions to be the same?
Felix is supposedly one of the best young talents in Europe so why would United not be interested, regardless of what JM thought?

{Ed002's Note - It was not him agreeing with pundits, scouts and supporters - his interest in him went back a very long way. The club failed to give him support yet are now looking at his targets. Embarrassing is the word.}

6.) 18 Feb 2019 19:01:20
Mourinho could have had as much support as he wanted yet he still wouldn’t have won anything. No longer anywhere near the top of the game and and too arrogant to change his ways.

7.) 18 Feb 2019 20:08:38
Have to disagree panne. He hadnt the support he needed and i g3nuinely believe he will win major honours again.

And fyi. i consider the europa a win for jose, its a vup we hadne ever wone before as well.



15 Jul 2017 15:58:50
I read somewhere don't know if it's true or not that barcelona have to pay benfica 5 million for every 50 appearances semedo makes.




14 Jul 2017 14:22:01
Ed 002 if you have time, I'd like to ask you have United any interest in nainggolan?


{Ed002's Note - Roma are making significant changes this summer but he is not for sale right now.}

1.) 14 Jul 2017 15:23:36
Cheers ed.



02 May 2017 06:54:58
Boys I was looking in to what is going wrong for us and I came across this.
Total shots 387 (3rd) in league.
Shots on goal 199 (2nd)
Goals 51 7th
Ratio 13.2% (17th)
Now the last one is conversion ratio. 3 teams below us Sunderland already relegated and Middlesbrough nearly gone.
There's no getting away from it we need a world class striker.


1.) 02 May 2017 08:00:06
We need shooting practice.

2.) 02 May 2017 08:16:17
I say we need both.

3.) 02 May 2017 09:01:31
We had one in Zlatan and he was getting criticised in here!

Personally don't think our mids and wide players contribute anywhere nearly enough. Mata, Martial, Miki, Lingard, Rashford all should be scoring more than they do.

{Ed004's Note - We need both! We have missed some shocking chances this year. Hopefully it will improve next season when we have a settled team. Martial, Mata, Rashford and Mkhitarian have all shown in the past that they know where the net is}

4.) 02 May 2017 09:12:07
CSM I will fully agree with you.
Papers saying we need to break bank paying £155m for Greaseman. I'd rather use it to buy Duvall . Of all the times this is the first time I'm hearing Hargreaves talk sense. With £155m we could start a nuclear war against any country gosh. It's going crazy.
We can buy so many more players to strengthen other departments. I am against spending so much for Greaseman . 😫😫.

5.) 02 May 2017 10:42:33
Well if we do get this Greaseman fellow, the United machinery would be oiled well and run perfectly.

6.) 02 May 2017 11:35:37
Good post Leahy, I suppose that puts things into perspective and I totally agree with Eric that we need a lot more from our attacking players.

Whilst our finishing has been poor I'm not sure that tells the full story!

From memory despite our struggles in front of goal we've managed to get in front against Swansea, Bournemouth, Stoke and Arsenal at OT and we've surrendered leads against Everton away, Anderlect (twice) and Rostov in the Europa.

This suggests to me that even through the stats suggests that our defence is relatively solid we also have a vulnerability at the back that needs attention.

Titles are built on clean sheets and a good Utd team should not be surrendering leads to Swansea, Bournemouth and Stoke especially at OT. If we hang on and win two of those games we'd be 4 points better off and in pole position for top 4. We've conceded last minute goals to Arsenal and Everton, if we hang on to win one of those games that's another 2 points. Title winning teams should be scoring last minute winners not conceding them and holding onto leads especially at home.

It's been an incredibly frustrating season and with better finishing and defending a so far underwhelming season could have been very different.

The unbeaten run is positive and demonstrates a degree of mental toughness and resilience. Moving forward we need to take care of the little details which make the big difference. Concentration at the back and clinical ruthlessness up front. Unfortunately it's these details that cost the money. On one hand we've very close on the other we're a million miles away, I suppose it just depends on what side of the fence you sit.

7.) 02 May 2017 11:36:06
Slippery slope boys this one.

8.) 02 May 2017 12:29:03
If we are going to spend stupid money we should be looking at dybala or lewondonski.
Or John Travolta would be a good grease man.

9.) 02 May 2017 13:07:56
Travolta's movement not quite what it used to be.

10.) 02 May 2017 13:40:45
That's what I am saying. We should not be overspending on Greaseman.
He is good but I am sure there are better buys around. Not spending so much on just one player.
I'd rather we buy others like Thomas Mooler.
Else Loowandowski is also a good buy.
Alternatively, we can buy the guy from Spurs, Cane?

11.) 02 May 2017 14:56:47
Michael Caine might be more likely.

12.) 02 May 2017 15:13:34
Travolta is fast like grease lightning.

13.) 03 May 2017 00:03:23
Yeah Caine and Travolta makes a great team.

{Ed007's Note - Don't you mean couple?}

14.) 03 May 2017 04:23:15
That's why you're Bond. You're absolutely right. 😂😂😂.

{Ed007's Note - A match made in Xenu.}

09 Aug 2019 17:48:39
Berbatov, when I was with united not winning the title was a bad season, fourth place would have been an insult for me and my teammates
That's when the club was run correctly
And here we are hoping for top 4.


1.) 09 Aug 2019 18:26:34
leahy it is only the fans that keep letting it go on toxic or not.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 18:33:22
That's my frustration too Leahy. I don't think we have any divine right to win every year but we should be able to challenge.

I understand mistakes have been made and we won't jump straight back but with a couple of good midfield signings we would've been a shoe in for top 4 and almost certainly put pressure on Spurs for 3rd place (a Spurs team known to falter late in the season) .

Instead we're told that "we might get top 4" and "is it really that bad? " While anyone who questions this or sees issues in the squad is mocked for having mental health issues by the blind positivity brigade. Its a bit embarrassing to see how the standards have dropped.

I'm sitting here hoping that a player who has barely played an entire season for us in Mctominay is able to play all 38 EPL games and all Europa league games and that Mason Greenwood can shoulder the burden at right wing / right forward at the age of 17. Forget the cups, its great to win one for the fans but they don't matter for the future of the club. We must finish top 4 or win the Europa to have any chance of building for a title challenge again.

3.) 09 Aug 2019 18:54:53
What does he know about Man Utd, Where is the positivity. He should get behind the team and support them instead of complaining.

4.) 09 Aug 2019 19:26:41
Life after fergy, we didn't win titles before him.
People laughted at the scouse thinking we had a good given right to be at the top . We had fergy.

5.) 09 Aug 2019 19:48:31
Leahy don't be worrying about 4th place, i think that we will be higher than that.

6.) 09 Aug 2019 21:04:44
Jred, are we the biggest club 8n England, Europe, now look at Madrid and Barcelona in Spain they are expected to win something every year,
Look at all different sports the biggest and richest win.
What we have is a bad board, bad chairman, don't mind years ago we hadn't anything like the money we have now, but there's a bunch of Americans owners, money men not a clue about football getting in the way.

7.) 09 Aug 2019 21:41:35
We where the biggest club in england and didn't win anything for years .
It has always gone round in cycles, epl isn't like la liga.

8.) 10 Aug 2019 08:17:32
We didn’t win the league for 26 years because we did what we are doing now. We are already on 6 and it will be 7,8,9 if we keep on the path we are on. It isn’t cycles, it is the lack of strategy and planning, with pinnacle aim of the business seemingly financial rather than football success.

9.) 10 Aug 2019 08:44:50
No stupid buys this summer, 3 good solid players, I would take the same next summer.

10.) 10 Aug 2019 09:35:21

So Manchester United accept not challenging this season, how is that a big club mentality?

I like the three players, but to leave us with the midfield we have and no natural goal scorer is poor.



07 Aug 2019 23:56:11

Hopefully United come in at the last minute and gazump Arsenal for Tierney leahy.

5.) 08 Aug 2019 02:01:34
Is your mate Ed Woodward? :)



07 Aug 2019 11:27:34
Will someone give lukkaku a ring there, tell him get the ferry home cause we are short in midfield, we can put him in alongside pogba the other united player that wants away.




19 Jul 2019 20:50:02
Harry maguire, he is 50 mil. Player, a good player not an 80 million great player,
Now herrera left a box to box midfielder,
I hope we get fernandes but we also need a cdm, fellanni left as well, matic is too slow takes 5 or 6 slow touches,

If pogba goes there's another midfielder who needs replacing with a proper world class midfielder, our rw needs sorting,
Then lukkaku goes needs replacing, rashford will not score more than 15 goals in the league,

Now the way I see it, we have an europa league team on champion league wages,
How long can you pay them wages not winning anything,
I see the posts about how hard it is to get transfers through,
Now for me we should be up there challenging Madrid and Barcelona, they weren't happy with their season but the got their transfers done
Man united shouldn't be settling for second best, its not like we can't afford to compete with these teams,

Sanchez wages are a joke for what he brings
Now we need a dof fairly rapid.
There's a lot of waffle on here about players we have, we will win nothing with the most of them, give this, one a chance that one a chance, oh the top 4 is great, the way the squad is now will make no top 4.
Not good enough, we are man united not Stoke City, no disrespect to Stoke.
And to top it off we have a manager who should never have got the job.


1.) 19 Jul 2019 21:07:01
Maguire is good enough to play for our great club 50-80 mill is the going rate for a premier league centre back i'm afraid . We are desperate for a quality defender get the deal done . The money should bother us fans we all know we have "Loads a money"🤣🤣.

2.) 19 Jul 2019 21:12:34
Madrid and Barcelona could still offer CL football, and a genuine crack at their league. Makes it a bit easier to get players in, Leahy. In our position, to get top players, we'll have to pay over the odds, and big wages. I don't think that's a situation any of us want, when our wage bill is already so high. I think we just have to suck it up for now.

3.) 19 Jul 2019 21:27:04
Your right nou, but that's why we need a dof, someone that can direct us in the right direction.

4.) 19 Jul 2019 21:34:24
Why will rashford not score more that 15 goals this season?

5.) 19 Jul 2019 21:43:10
Can't work out if you're fishing Leahy! 🤣.

6.) 19 Jul 2019 21:53:05
The problem is that United have always been a hard sell to the best foreign players.

Manchester is not a city they want to live in. It doesn't have the glitz and glamour, and certainly not the climate of some of Europe's best cities. We have had three things going for us previously to tempt those players in.

1, a genuine chance of winning the major trophies.

2, a genuine world class manager who will go down in history as one of the greatest of all time in Sir Alex Ferguson.

3, the ability to pay more than most other team.

The issue is we definitely don't have the first two anymore, and even the third one isn't what it used to be. With so many other teams being able to pay huge wages, FFP limiting our ability to massively over pay on wages and even UK tax rules meaning that players keep less of their wages here compared to some other EU countries.

All we have left is history, and I don't think many players are that sentimental.

The problem though isn't overspending on players. It's fine to overspend on the RIGHT players. If your signing one of the very best players at the peak of their ability and you can be sure they will fit in and hit top form almost straight away then it doesn't matter as much if you pay 20m too much for them, or if the wages are on the high side.

However, we aren't in a position to be overspending on the very best players, we are doing it on the second or even third tier of player. Meaning we have blown our budget on decent but not outstanding players and then we get stuck with them on high wages that no one else will match so we struggle to off load them.

80m on a player of the quality of Rio Ferdinand or Nemanja Vidic is one thing. But do you pay a world record fee for a defender who it is questionable if they are even in the top 10 best central defenders in the world.

Do we spend Ronaldo money on a player like Harry Maguire? Is that sensible? Will that take us back to the big time?

I get the argument that it market forces and a player is worth what club's will pay for him. So name me another club that will pay 80m for Harry Maguire and I'll accept he is worth that much. But if no one but us will pay it then that isn't market forces that is us inflating the market and screwing ourselves into the bargain.

7.) 19 Jul 2019 22:02:35
No fishing, shappy I agree with most of that, but look at city they have got players who are world class and I thought some of them would go after a year or 2 or 3 but they are staying.

8.) 19 Jul 2019 22:15:26
There wages got a decrease to go in line with the failures of last season.

9.) 19 Jul 2019 22:21:41
Maybe the club rate him higher than you?

10.) 19 Jul 2019 22:24:03
Good point that, city threw money at it.

11.) 19 Jul 2019 22:25:13
I said we had three things that attracted players to us, winning things, huge wages and a manager players want to play for.

City can match anything in wages that we could offer. They are highly likely to win major trophies over the next 5 years. And Pep is one of the few managers world wide who nearly any player would want to play for.

City currently have everything we used to have to be able to attract top players.

12.) 19 Jul 2019 22:33:16
Jred just my opinion, I could be wrong, don't see him as an out and out goalscorer. He has a good shot on him just sometimes he tries to burst the ball trying to put swerve on it, and the ball could end up anywhere, when he is 1 and 1 on the keeper he misses to much, like I remember ruud v n when he was 1 on 1 it was a goal,
Now if lukkaku goes he has to improve, prove himself this season.
Now I hope he does.

13.) 19 Jul 2019 22:44:36
I don't see see why he can't score 5 more goals than he did last season .
Last season was a mess, jose had lost it, we played pretty average defensive footy and rash played left right and central.
I don't see why with another year under his belt, playing as the main striker in a more attacking team he can't score 5 more league goals than he did last season .

14.) 19 Jul 2019 22:45:50
Shappy city didn't have any of that when there current owners took over . They did have hard cash tho.

15.) 19 Jul 2019 23:01:23
Yawn. Same stuff different day.

16.) 19 Jul 2019 23:04:10
I abhor the Manchester bashing City seem to be able to retain their best players. Aguero, D. Silva, B. Silva, De Bruyne, Kompany. This is your opinion again mate not fact. Some players may prefer the sun on their back but not all of them are so shallow and it's a generalisation to suggest the best players don't want to live or play in Manchester it's simply not true.

Manchester - The worlds first industrial City, a place where the atom was first split, a place that offered the first free public libraries, the place where the first programmable computer was designed, the worlds first passenger railway station, Manchester is home to many of the Uk's best bands not forgetting the Halle orchestra, the Bridgewater canal was the first man made waterway in Britain, its home to the worlds longest running Soap and is the place where the first professional football league was set up, I could go on and on a its an amazing place.

Manchester is a vibrant, exciting, inclusive City rich in culture and heritage. Manchester is a City of first's and not a place to scorn or underestimate.

I'll climb off my soap box now sorry for the rant!

17.) 19 Jul 2019 23:13:22

Why is almost everyone obsessed with the money?

I just don't understand the fascination.

It's not as if the club are stealing your pocket money.

Most if not all, of us have no idea how the finances work so why all the worry.

If and when Ed woody comes knocking at my door asking me to lend him a tenner, then I shall worry. otherwise couldn't give a toss.

Dlib well said mate, it's great to see people backing their hometown.
Good post.

21.) 20 Jul 2019 00:29:19
Why can’t we just get behind the team and support them the way we used to?

Near enough all the Man Utd fans I speak to are acting like spoilt brats without realising we got to where we are with hard work and determination. We very rarely had a star studded team. We had 16 players turn up willing to die for the shirt.

I think ole coming back is good and mike phelan too. With a good preseason getting the players fit and introducing a new free flowing type of football we will start to see improvements.

I’m looking forward to watching us this season for the first time in about 4 years.

Let’s all just relax until the window shuts and see how we play when it matters 😊

P. s Daniel James looks exciting from what I’ve seen

P. p. s Rashford will score over 20 this year, heard it here first.

22.) 20 Jul 2019 06:16:59
Yes DLIB, I remember when Ronaldo came here, he couldn't wait to visit the free public libraries 😋

Nice post and good to see you backing your hometown just as I would but in all honesty, Manchester isn't as appealing as the money that can be offered by the 2 clubs there.

23.) 20 Jul 2019 07:57:26

Well said DLIB.

Manchester has everything but a beach.

Not United related but has anyone had a look at Huddersfield new kit, it must be the worst one I've ever seen, does anyone in that club know that paddy Power is a piss taker,
He just made the biggest prank in football and got away with it.

It is ghastly Leahy. Looks like something out a beauty pageant 😂.

2.) 17 Jul 2019 14:34:28
I think prank is the correct word Leahy, no chance that is the real kit, they are amazing at getting media coverage though.

3.) 17 Jul 2019 15:19:25
Gds2 I thought it was a prank but it is genuine.

4.) 17 Jul 2019 17:24:06
It goes against all the sponsorship rules and to do that with some companies they might be let off but fairly sure they will be in trouble doing it with a gambling company, already a lot of issues and people complaining about gambling adverts.

5.) 17 Jul 2019 20:27:19
Calling it now. A massive prank. PP are well known for pulling big publicity stunts. can't see how huddersfield will be allowed to do it!

I don't know whether he wants a move or not, napoli are a good side, but if he did want a move abroad and wanted to prove himself, Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs in Europe, now we all know we have gone backwards, but it's down to clowns running the club,
Manchester United are huge big Big club. Now that's the kind of player we need, but does he want the move, have we got the right men in the job to attract these players.
For me we need a dof who can get the right people in the right positions,
But will the club be left do these things, them glazers are money men not football men.

The only thing I could see here is the Liverpool team don't look 100% fit, but I'd say they will be bang at it when they get going.

It was true for Jose, he has too much power at Manchester United.
He said he wanted to leave, his agent said he wanted to leave,
What if Madrid or juve come back in for him, where does that leave us,
Our midfield is already weaker that last year with herrera gone,
Then of he stays will he be angry with the club, down tools and trot around the pitch not giving a dam.
We had all summer to bring in sms, fernandes, longstaff, mcginn
All I know if he does stay and doesn't give his all we are in trouble,

Jred, are we the biggest club 8n England, Europe, now look at Madrid and Barcelona in Spain they are expected to win something every year,
Look at all different sports the biggest and richest win.
What we have is a bad board, bad chairman, don't mind years ago we hadn't anything like the money we have now, but there's a bunch of Americans owners, money men not a clue about football getting in the way.
