BBC reporting that neither us or arsenal will agree to the sanchez transfer unless miki goes the other way.

No idea how much truth is in this, especially given how Ed02's previously stated that transfers involving money and an additional player are generally unlikely.

Imo if that's what's needes to get sanchez in I'd be more than happy, but it doesn't fill me with confidence for this transfer to happen.

I can’t see it. I think miki will turn them down and it will go tits up.


2.) 16 Jan 2018 13:27:12
That's what in thinking. But then again, he must know now that he's not really wanted, so a move is going to be needed to reignite his career.


3.) 16 Jan 2018 13:28:18
Looks like it's other agents trying to scupper the Sanchez deal. If he comes brilliant . But let's not spend all January chasing a lost cause.


4.) 16 Jan 2018 17:15:59
It's being reported now it would be a straight player swap.


5.) 16 Jan 2018 17:51:52
Mhiki’s agent now stepping into the deal.

Enough said.


6.) 18 Jan 2018 13:22:23
Wenger saying deal is likely.

Apparently we have put in a bid for Sanchez.

Made my day hearing that.

The next few weeks could be a rather bumpy ride. I'm assuming we beat Tranmere, granted we've been poor but we really should have enough in the tank to beat them.

Then it's city in the cup, followed by wolves and Chelsea in the league.

If we lose all 3 of those games, which is entirely feasible, I think Ole will be sacked. We'd have been dumped out the cup by a major rival and falling further behind in the top 4 race, not to mention our previous 2 league games have been losses, so I don't think Ole will survive it.

However, I think we'll lose to city, but I only narrowly as they'll likely be a little less aggressive given their 3-1 lead, lose to wolves, who let's face it, are much better than us at the moment, and then beat Chelsea, because we'll likely turn up for that game, and that will be just enough for Ole to scrape by and continue for the season.

I wouldn't assume anything at this point 😂.


2.) 25 Jan 2020 15:54:06
City are a better team than us. Laporte is back which is a huge boost for them.

Wolves have been a tough opponent since their return to the EPL. They knocked us out of the FA cup last season as well as beating us in the EPL.

Tranmere, on paper is a win. This is the FA cup. Shock results happen.

Will. OGS get. the sack. i'd he loses the next 3 games?
I'm my opinion no. The Ed's have already said United are reluctant to sack him. I'm clutching at straws here, but if Pochittino was to be our next manager, I think Slurs would be owed money within a certain timeframe if he got another job.
That is, if the reports in the press are true?

Realistically he is here until the end of the season. The club may wish to. give a new manager a a pre season etc. Also if they buy players now would the new manager want those players around?

The brutal truth is that we are shambolic. 5th place is an the achievement in my opinion. Were four ate that other clubs have been so poor this season. The harsh reality is we may indeed find ourselves I'm a relegation battle since there is only 13 points that separated us from the relegation zone.


3.) 25 Jan 2020 16:23:23
Talk of relegation again 🤦‍♂️.


4.) 25 Jan 2020 16:59:48
We're not getting relegated. I mean, sure, it's possible, but highly unlikely. I think 10th or so is entirely feasible, as is 4th. We'll finish top half of the table but likely outside the top four, and I think the only way to make a good case for us getting 4th is if the next week has us signing two decent midfielders and a new manager.


5.) 25 Jan 2020 18:31:20
4th nowhere near attainable - but clearly we won’t go down!


6.) 25 Jan 2020 18:43:20
When Martial was out earlier in the season. Rashford was getting really slated around that time for such poor form. I believe Martial made his league comeback off the bench in the liverpool draw at home it was only then Rashfords form picked up. During the period Martial was out we won 1 league game out of six, 2 defeats and 3 defeats. I'm expecting similar type of form now again I don't see us getting 4th. Every chance chelsea have given us we keep blowing it.


7.) 25 Jan 2020 19:39:22
The point I was making was that with a bad run of results we can easily slip down the table. The problem us we are low in confidence.


8.) 25 Jan 2020 19:45:05
2 defeats and 3 draws I meant to put. Sorry.


9.) 25 Jan 2020 21:05:49
Completely agree Mad Hatter. Imagine an injury to Martial or Greenwood or even both. Who will score the goals? We struggling for goals as it is. We desperately need a player or two.

Rooney just bagged an assist for Derby. I bet he'd be better in midfield for us than most of the options we currently have. A somewhat depressing statement.

1.) 02 Jan 2020 22:05:23
A somewhat hysterical statement.


2.) 03 Jan 2020 01:09:36
I'd take him over lingard. Not suggesting a come back with any seriousness though.


3.) 03 Jan 2020 04:26:21
Yup still better than Lingard :)

Quote from our leader:

" Hopefully, it will be a fresh team because we need to be up at our best to have a chance. ”. at frickin Norwich!

Need to be at our best to have a chance against Norwich. second from bottom Norwich! 7 points from 9 games Norwich, -11 goal difference Norwich.

Inspiring confidence with every syllable.

RedD

1.) 25 Oct 2019 12:46:18
Fake quotes. Log on to the MU website and read the real quote from OGS before believing crap you see online. The real quote goes something like, "we all know they (Norwich) just got promoted after being top 3 in a garbage league, they are muppets and i wouldn't expect anything less than a 7-0 win for us. In fact I've given the players an off, they will all travel to Norwich independently from their homes and meet there on Sunday. Myself i am not sure i'll attend the match as the spoon race back home is this weekend soo. "


2.) 25 Oct 2019 12:55:36
lol Unruly.


3.) 25 Oct 2019 15:28:16
Norwich have beaten the league champions this season. Your dissmisive attitude is what's wrong with this fan base. We play in the most competitive league in the world, anyone can win on their day.


4.) 25 Oct 2019 20:32:03
James,

"we need to be at our best to HAVE A CHANCE"

It's the have a chance bit. It's not about not respecting the opposition, it's about the fact that he's taking about us as if we are hoping to maybe scrape a draw against a formidable opponent, when in fact it's God dam Norwich who are 2nd from bottom and have a minus 11 goal difference. It's exactly what Moyes did and I don't like it, not one little bit.


5.) 26 Oct 2019 00:17:04
This is the same arrogance LFC fans had before we played you lot.

They're only 3pts behind you, having played three of the current top four (beating city) and the only team they've played lower in the league than you is NUFC who they beat.

Pukki can score goals for fun and you rarely score more than one, banana skin after euro night on Thursday, draw for me 1_1.


6.) 26 Oct 2019 09:44:13
Idontlooklikeklopp, I think the game is an interestingly poised game. Norwich are a team that are great going forward but struggle to defend. While we are a team that is good defensively yet struggle to create chances.

We could end up cancelling eachother out. I think your right Norwich's current position doesn't quite tell the whole story, they have had a much tougher run of fixtures than we have and like you say they have beaten Man City already. So they have proven then can compete at this level by beating the reigning champions.


7.) 26 Oct 2019 13:48:13
Right shappy. very very tough game for the fight in the bottom half.


8.) 26 Oct 2019 14:28:28
We aren't the Manchester United side of 2008, so why do we expect to brush teams aside like we have a world beating team?

We don't have a Ronaldo, Rooney, Tevez, Berbatov or RvP to smash goals in against sides.

We don't have the world class forward players that make winning games against any side not in the top 6 or 7 sides a foregone conclusion.

That's just the side we have currently.

So yes the side that beat City and gave Liverpool a tough game, despite what the score line suggests isn't going to be an easy win for us.

What do you expect Ole to say?

"They are only Norwich, I expect we'll stick 5 or 6 past them". If he said that then we didn't beat them he would have created a rod for his own back.

Truth is, Norwich aren't mugs, and won't be beaten easily. Especially by a side that is struggling to create chances. So we will need to be at our best to have a chance to beat Norwich.

Welcome to the real world.


9.) 26 Oct 2019 18:05:27
They are the mugs of the premiership shappy in the relegation zone yet if they win 6 nil they go ahead of us😭.

Seeing the fighting spirit that both pool and spurs have shown over the last two days really puts into perspective how pathetic we've been with regard to the opportunities we've had to grab a champions league place.

RedD

1.) 08 May 2019 23:11:49
We are a joke. Its as simple as that, a joke.


2.) 09 May 2019 17:52:44
Our "move seeking" superstars were not even ready to show fight against Huddersfield and prove the deal.
We have no right to speak about current Liverpool and City side.


 

 

28 Apr 2019 13:23:18
Arsenal and a man down and a goal down. If they lose and we beat Chelsea then the 3 of us will be on the same points, with us with the worst goal difference. Would make for one hell of a final couple of games.

RedD

1.) 28 Apr 2019 13:48:20
Arsenal will be 1 point behind.


2.) 28 Apr 2019 14:06:01
We have been getting chance after chance after chance to get into the top 4.
This is it, we have been poor against city, wolves and Barcelona for 5 games now.
If we beat Chelsea today, I'm very certain we'll make the top 4.
Arsenal are not making it this year after recent performances against recent sides.
Beat Chelsea by 2 goals too, which is very achievable as they aren't full strength with Kante and odoi out.
The team has to be together for the last 3 games now and give it their all, and they whomsoever wants to pack his bags can leave.

If we bought two solid midfielders, ie class players who would walk into the first team, then I think we would have a very good chance of obtaining 4th.

Our front 3 are pretty good, they just need better service, and with a decent midfield the defence would be ender far less pressure and I think is sufficient.

The only risk is those two new midfielders not settling quick enough, but it would certainly improve our chances.

This is one of the most frustrating things. In spite of how poor we've been, we're still somehow in the running, and if we just committed some funds to pushing on we have enough to ensure top 4 and champions league.

I think it would also be reasonable to give Ole the rest of the year with those two extra midfielders to see what he can do. Whatever your thoughts on him, you can't deny he is being given a tough ask to get top 4 with that midfield.

So the plan should be two midfielder starters in January, give Ole the rest of the season, and if he demonstrates some kind of management ability that we so far haven't seen then he has a right to keep his job, but if he doesn't then he can be replaced.

Thsre seems very little risk in backing him in the market for positions that we are so very lacking in. I wouldn't be allowing him to sell top players and replace with his preferences, but strengthening where we are so obviously weak seems a no brainer.

I'd agree mort, wouldn't really want any of them. But that said, Isco and Kroos in front of mctominay would be an absolutely huge improvement on what we have, and given we have a pretty strong front 3, we'd probably be pretty good like that.

It does seem a little surprising. But it makes a little sense from the perspective that living in London is more attractive than Manchester and he'll get champs league footy.

I wonder if to some extent agents think they can get away with murder with us, so throw down massive fees and wages when talking with us and we've just told him to do one, so now that door has closed he's somewhat out of options.

I hope that's the case. I like the idea of agents realigning their expectations of quite how far they can bend us over.

Inaki Williams I think you're talking about. Pacey winger / forward from what I understand, ut no idea if we're actually interested or who he is.

I'd agree. I know Ole gets some stick, and I've certainly been one to criticise, but you'd have to think he knows how to play as a forward and can pass some of that knowledge on to our young strikers.
