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.

Excitement has been growing since Wednesday. I'd somewhat forgotten about football over the last few months, but now it's back I'm really looking forward to it.

I want to see Bruno and pogba linking up and really hope we play both of them. I don't want two holding players, but if pogba does walk back in to the side, you'd have to feel for whichever of Fred or mctom gets dropped as they've both worked hard this season.

We've gone from feeling really light in central midfield to suddenly having 5 players who need to battle it out and all have a good shout as to why they should be on the field.

One part of me says pogba has been a selfish individual and had a negative impact on the team so doesn't deserve to be on the pitch, but another part is excited at how dangerous we'd be with both him and Bruno adding creativity and drive to our midfield.

My gut feeling is we start with pogba on the bench and he comes on for 30 mins, probably replacing Bruno of we're winning or one of the dms if we need a goal.

Marcus Rashford. What a decent young man.

Rich, famous and can lead any life he chooses, but decides to try and do something good with the opportunity all that attention offers him.

That is all.

RedD,

Certainly hasn't let fame go to his like lingard. He looks like could be a role model for the younger players to follow.


2.) 15 Jun 2020 10:30:24
Mad hatter, absolutely. Just want we need in this world right now.

Contrasting him with the likes on pogba and lingard really does make him stand out as solid professional and decent human being who hasn't let fame and success go to his head.

We could do with more people like him. Makes it much easier to get behind him when for example form dips or goals temporarily dry up. You would imagine that he'd be giving his all on the training pitch to turn it around, where as with others you wonder if they even care.


3.) 15 Jun 2020 15:41:42
Nice down to earth working class lad, he remembers where he's from, good on him, makes a change from the normal arrogant footballer.

Watford tomorrow. Other results have gone our way again and we have yet another chance to move back up the table and take a clear 5th position, which could be as good as 4th given the city situation.

But, its Watford, who we should be beating with ease, and these are just the kind of games and opportunities we've been unable to capitalise on. Please, Ole, don't mess it up again!

RedD

1.) 22 Feb 2020 20:08:28
Getting deja vu. This was stated a few weeks back when we played wolves and look how that turned out. Hoping Bruno can inspire the 3 points 2morrow.


2.) 22 Feb 2020 20:47:52
I expect a good win tomorrow. Chelsea can be caught. Great win yesterday but like ourselves they are thin on the ground. Leicester could get dragged back into the race they are in our form only 3 wins in their last 11. So all is not lost in the cl hunt just yet.


3.) 22 Feb 2020 21:16:12
Every time I think we will get a comfy win we don't and we struggle. So for tomorrow I'm not saying or thinking anything 😂.


4.) 22 Feb 2020 21:26:31
I think the players need to read that message too. They need to turn up and start fast. If the players win their battles all over the pitch then we should be good enough to win by more than 1.


5.) 22 Feb 2020 22:56:39
It's not the individual performances that let us down, it's the lack of cohesion. We'll be relying on an individual piece of magic or capitalising on a mistake. At least with Bruno here the chance of the magic is a little higher, and Martiall is scoring so hopefully goes into the game full of confidence.


6.) 23 Feb 2020 00:18:42
Watford will press and be totally committed. Only if we match them do we have a chance.


7.) 23 Feb 2020 05:08:39
McTominay is coming back at a much needed time.
He normally brings the best out of other players with his tenacity and energy in the middle of the park.

And if Pogba comes back next week and turns on his gear, we can end the season on a high note.


8.) 23 Feb 2020 10:24:39
Tom, that is the problem. People still think we can get "comfy" wins? There are no comfy wins anymore. You have to go out, be committed and work hard and hope our better players can make the difference.
Unfortunately, our players have the "comfy" win attitude in these matches, and we often come a cropper due to this attitude.


9.) 23 Feb 2020 11:26:38
AAA

I think we come a cropper in games like these because we don’t set up right. Playing 5 at the back to frustrate doesn’t work at home against this type of opposition. Fernandez will be interesting today, if played further forward and we actually attack we should win.


 

 

25 Jan 2020 13:10:15
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.

1.) 25 Jan 2020 14:23:15
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.

RedD

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 :)

I would imagine that German teams attending UK youth games with the plan to take our young players to Germany will do wonders for the England team a decade from now.

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.

Sounded to me like he was aware, which was that unless there had been some sudden change of heart by the player, he was off.

We started the week 5th, we're now 7th. We could be 9th after the next round of matches. We are sinking like a stone.
