Well McNair just got his own back. Remind me of his OG if we lose out by a goal on goal difference again.


1.) 14 Aug 2016 05:50:27
Could have happened to anyone mate.
Besides city looked very timid. If you need a penalty and own goal to win against sunderland, they are going to be in for a very difficult season.
Correct me if I'm wrong but they looked a lot like van gaals utd of December. Too many square passes and a frustrated striker.

2.) 14 Aug 2016 08:58:17
Riddlet it's difficult to make assumptions after 1 game. It's rare any team gets going properly until a few games in. Probably best to start judging teams come October. Plus if United had won in that fashion you'd probably be saying "we get 3 points that's the main thing".

3.) 14 Aug 2016 12:22:11
Also remember they have Gundogan and sane to come in. But yeah, Pep will encounter similar problems to LVG with his possession football. Knowing the media in this country I'm sure he won't get half the stick he would if he was the United manager.

4.) 14 Aug 2016 17:23:45
Gotta love the haters, . Shows how much people fear us.

5.) 14 Aug 2016 22:27:20
How the hell did Aguero get MOTM on dream team?

Could you imagine Utd V City with LVG still our manager, harrowing stuff?!

6.) 15 Aug 2016 11:51:29
I haven't been too disappointed by Valencia's performances so far this season. Whether he stays or goes (Darmian), I would be quite happy for Valencia to remain RB. He isn't the greatest player, but he gets up and down, wins tackles, and provides assists from some of the crosses he has put in already.



09 Jun 2016 15:55:25
Ed002 has said on European pages that we are interested in Embolo along with many other clubs but that joining us would not be good for him. I assume the step up from the Swiss league would be too big at this time as it has been for Depay from the Dutch league. Definitely one to watch for the future though.

Hope we get Berardi or Bernardo Silva for RF.


1.) 09 Jun 2016 16:15:28
Swiss newspaper 20min are saying we are leading the chase and could be signing in the next few days.



23 May 2016 19:42:12
Just seen Woy Hodgson getting into a limo with a guy that looked a lot like Eddie Woodward and I swear the other guy was Robbie Savage, all with United scarves and big cheesy grins.


1.) 24 May 2016 00:36:28
New manager and assistant?

2.) 24 May 2016 13:03:27
Replying to your own rumour?

{Ed023's Note - He probably forgot to add the "punch line" to the original post, well it's what I'd like to think anyway}

3.) 24 May 2016 15:13:07
He must be JMB with another new name :)

4.) 24 May 2016 19:25:44
Lol Betty if I was JMB I would at least switch accounts before answering myself. Think it was just very late when I sent the op.

5.) 25 May 2016 12:41:59
It was also way too funny to be JMB.




21 May 2016 21:40:03
Interesting to see who will be assistant manager next season. According to the media Giggs won't work with Jose but at the same time I doubt Jose is in a position to demand his own backroom staff if the board want to keep the ones we already have.

Hope Jose is backed in the market and gets his targets in early.


1.) 22 May 2016 01:55:52
Jose will 100% be able to have his own backroom staff!

2.) 22 May 2016 08:08:36
I would love to see scholes in a coaching role. Maybe not a big influence on Sunday but on the training pitch he'd be an incredible asset.

3.) 22 May 2016 08:26:17
Scholes has been offered roles several times.

4.) 22 May 2016 12:59:26
I wonder whether a certain Drobga would come in to work with Jose. Could be decent for Rashford and Martial. He was rumoured to come on board with Jose at Chelsea at one point wasn't he?

5.) 22 May 2016 08:06:12
Why? United know Jose is desperate for the job, Jose knows we know. United, foolishly, seem to want Giggs to stay and hold 3 of the 4 aces in negotiations. Perhaps that is why Mendes leaked the story to strengthen their position and put pressure on United.

I hope Jose joins and Giggs leaves, as for the rest of the backroom staff I don't know how good the current incumbents are or who Jose would want. Do think its important though that if we sign Jose that we back him fully. The last thing we need is people in the club trying to undermine him.



20 May 2016 20:19:25
According to Ed002 on the European Soccer site, Real intend on signing Dave the Save this summer.


1.) 20 May 2016 21:03:32
Hopefully but doubtfully de gea intends to stay.

2.) 20 May 2016 22:10:42
I had to ask the question. IMO the lure If RM and CL football might be too much for DDG. Plus he's more likely to remains Spain's number 1.

3.) 21 May 2016 05:40:24
If he does decide to leave then imo we should ask for varane plus cash in exchange.
Forster to replace him for me. He'll hit the ground running, won't need time like de gea did initially to adapt to the pl.

4.) 21 May 2016 06:14:41
I can't see Forster beinganywhere near good enough, his footwork is that of a stumbling elephant as is his movement in general, for such a big keeper he's bang average at set pieces, i'd compare him to a slightly better mignolet. the only keeper playing in the prem who might be available who imo is good enough is schmeichel. e.

5.) 21 May 2016 07:58:31
Not a fan of Forster tbh, I think Lloris is signing a new deal at Spurs from what I've read, Butland signed new deal, not really up on my keepers worldwide but we was once linked with Handanovic so maybe he still on the radar, that's the think with this up in the air, fans demanding change its set us back at least one transfer window.

6.) 21 May 2016 06:45:26
I want us to keep De Gea but if he's going I agree with Riddle that we should try to get Varane in exchange. Wouldn't want Forster, think Bernd Leno or Perrin would be better.

7.) 21 May 2016 12:56:12
Steve Mandana is out of contract this summer, I'd rather have him than Forster!

8.) 21 May 2016 20:39:36
time to mess up the fax machine lads.

9.) 22 May 2016 20:47:20
Jordan Pickfords name has been thrown around with a move Manchester United?

Just a rumour though eh?

There's been a lot of debate about whether this season has been a "success" and if Ole has done well. I know we all want United to be challenging for the title but I think we would probably all have accepted 3rd at the start of the season/ when lockdown began. Perhaps that achievement has lost some of its shine due to poor performances in the two semi finals at the end of the season.
My question is what do you think are reasonable expectations for next season?
For me I think it's maybe less about turning semi finals into finals/ winning silverware and more about seeing improvement in the team/ manager. Don't get me wrong I'd love us to win something but I wouldn't exchange the expectations below for a League cup/ making the semis of UCL
1) minimum of top 4 but aiming for 5 more wins in the league/ pushing 80 points
2) improved goal difference at least +40 but preferably pushing towards +50
3) Ole improving on areas he has struggled in (in game management (having a plan b, making positive subs and tactical acumen) I'm not dissing him, he's a relatively inexperienced manager, he has worked wonders with Martial and Greenwood and if he can improve in other areas perhaps he is suitable long term
4) improvements in starting XI and squad depth. Some may be through the natural development of players as they move towards their peak years whilst some will require wise investment in the transfer market to replace aging/ sub standard players.


1.) 18 Aug 2020 19:52:17
Top 4 has to be minimum expectation (although I'm sure there will be seasons when we won't get it, there are just too many big teams competing for 4 spots now) . Other than that I don't think it is realistic to set specific targets in terms of trophies etc for a single season.

The main thing is continued improvement. Ole needs to improve his tactical decision making, and the team needs to improve its consistency, and get some of the old determination, drive and refusal to give in, even when playing below their best or losing.

If I see those improvements, I won't be too worried about whether we win any trophies or anything just yet.

2.) 19 Aug 2020 07:00:48
Ole has been good for the club, good off field decisions and recruitment, promoting from the academy things we all like to see, it is his on field decisions that seem to be lacking.

I believe that Ole is probably more suited to the DOF role at United than coaching.



08 Aug 2020 14:24:34
If you could sign 3 players from relegated sides who would you pick in what order?


{Ed004's Note - Jamal Lewis (Williams can cover right back), Sarr (Not sure James is good enough/maybe a loan would do him good) or Brookes (same reason) and maybe Doucoure}

1.) 08 Aug 2020 14:45:07
Brooks, Cantwell and Kelly.

2.) 08 Aug 2020 15:54:19
Doucoure, Sarr, Brookes.

3.) 08 Aug 2020 16:06:08
There aren't 3 I'd take. Since Shappy mentioned his stats, I've watched more of Buendia, and I'd take him over Grealish.

4.) 08 Aug 2020 18:38:36
Buendía (obviously), Cantwell and Lewis.

5.) 09 Aug 2020 07:28:30
Sarr, Doucoure and Brooks.

6.) 09 Aug 2020 09:41:23
Dacoure, Cantwell, Sarr.

7.) 10 Aug 2020 14:27:27
Max Aarons, Doucoure and Brooks as my choice
Lewis, Deulofeu and Cantwell as my Mrs' choice.



17 Jul 2020 19:14:00
Would you swap De Gea for Kante (and have Henderson as first choice keeper next year? )


1.) 17 Jul 2020 20:13:18
Why would chelsea agree to that?

2.) 17 Jul 2020 20:24:45
Their keeper is awful, they have lots of midfielders, Kante plays irregularly and often out of position, they appear to be making quite a few signings and may need to make space in their squad, they may believe Kante is past his best given that his work rate is a big part of his game, can he maintain that as he approaches 30, goalkeepers often peak later/ and maintain their ability to an older age. etc.

3.) 18 Jul 2020 00:58:16
That's a left field swap right there.

4.) 18 Jul 2020 01:18:50
Kante is still a world class player but that would be a weird swap.

5.) 18 Jul 2020 04:57:20
Honestly I would take that swap anyday degeas wages are ridiculously high for a keeper who is past his best. A fit kante for a few years would add much more to utd then degea will.

Just the assurance of having him there would do so much for the defence and attack freeing up pogba having to baby sit next to the DM when matic can't play is huge.

6.) 18 Jul 2020 18:22:59
Except Kante isn't a very good passer so Pogba would have to sit next to him to receive the pass after Kante won it back.

Perhaps that's the reason he isn't playing for Chelsea?

{Ed001's Note - wow that is gibberish. Kante is a very good passer and the only time he doesn't play is when he is injured, like he is currently.}



09 Jul 2020 19:54:00
If you could sign 3 premiership players this summer from any teams other than City and Liverpool who would you sign?


{Ed004's Note - For our current squad Declan Rice, Grealish and Chilwell. Definitely forgetting someone though}

1.) 09 Jul 2020 20:43:01
Think I'd go with Adama Traore to compete with Greenwood for the RF position.
Ruben Neves to gradually replace Matic, although Ndidi is a good shout
And Soyuncu to partner 'Arry at CB, is there a better CB in the prem other than VVD?
I think those are our 3 weakest areas although LB is a concern too.

2.) 09 Jul 2020 20:43:44
Kante, Traore and Cantwell.

3.) 09 Jul 2020 21:16:55
Grealish, Vardy and Rice (for a centre back)

4.) 09 Jul 2020 22:50:30
Well we need a RW, CAM/ LM and either a CDM or a CB.

So I'd go for Buendía and Cantwell from Norwich. Then I could be tempted by Ake from Bournemouth. Personally I feel finding the right partner for Maguire is more important than CDM right now.

5.) 09 Jul 2020 23:55:13
Vardy is 33 and has a £140k a week contract till 2022. He isn't going anywhere else to sit on the bench, and the last thing we need is the drama that comes with Mrs. Vardy.

6.) 10 Jul 2020 00:04:11
Ake / Tomori.

7.) 10 Jul 2020 17:25:37



21 Jun 2020 13:11:40
If you could sell 3 United players for half there market value, however you calculate that, who would you sell?


1.) 21 Jun 2020 13:49:17
Got to be Jones, Rojo and Sanchez surely?

2.) 21 Jun 2020 14:22:31
Jones Sanchez and rojo without doubt.

3.) 21 Jun 2020 14:37:27
I'll be controversial and say Sanchez Pogba and DDG. Get 3 big wages off the books and get a few quid for Pog and Dave. Pogba wants out and ed2 says keeping him is bad for the club, with DDG we have a ready made replacement in Henderson.

4.) 21 Jun 2020 14:49:46
I would let sanchez, rojo and jones go for 0% of their market value. Let them go for free basically. In sanchez case would also pay some of his wages to get him out of the club.

In terms of half their market value i would let lingard, pereira and lindelof go. I've been really disappointed by lindelof this season, ridiculously poor in aerial duels, lacks the pace to cover maguire, borderline cowardly when in ball posession (dont think he played a forward pass at all against spurs) and AWB has to bail him out half the time.

5.) 21 Jun 2020 18:42:49
We have players of high value i wouldn't want any of those to leave at a50% discount.
Players of lower value and lessoning contribution like lingard mata smalling ( i'd like to see all 3 get the move they want they have been solid players for the most part and loyal players to all managers) i think if a move that suits them comes up particularly abroad i'd be happy to see the club be flexible in negotiations. Players like jones sanchez and rojo i'd be happy to see them leave for any fee.

6.) 21 Jun 2020 20:08:12
Gotta agree with Mulam, ddg pogba and Sanchez.
25 on ddg
30 on pogba
10 on Sanchez

Although that’s probably being optimistic.

7.) 21 Jun 2020 20:15:19
Sanchez but who is going to pay him anywhere near that sort of wage, so won't happen.

Jones but he'd break down in the medical. The treatment rooms at Carrington should be called the Phil Jones Suite.

Dan James, just feel he is not at the level we need. Really really hope he proves me wrong, it would make me so happy.

If we get rid of 3, that leaves us with 4 (none of which are world class) and one/ arguably two of those seem quite injury prone.

Raphina and Phillips from Leeds
Pau Torres
Dumfries as a more attacking alternative to AWB or just keep Dalot.

Deependra, not entirely accurate, the king can move in all those directions too (although only 1 space in each direction) Also the king is the most valuable and important piece. if he is captured the game is over. The queen isthe most powerful/ dangerous piece. Either which way Pogba is a bishop at best (being paid a kings ransom)
