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.

Imagine how the players must feel to have him back, especially with everything he brings to the locker room. Leadership, brilliant skill, hard working, amazing dancer… even CR7 must be excited to have Lingardinho back

Lingard should be starting ahead of Sancho at the moment.
Before we all get over-excited, the teams we have faced so far are all in the lower half of the table. After Young Boys then the season really begins with the West Ham double header.


2.) 11 Sep 2021 21:36:02
West Ham won't have their best player on the pitch Antonio and I see a script of JLingz scoring against them.

Can't believe I'm saying this, but I hope city get Messi. I know they'll be incredibly strong, and it will be Terri le for us, but I just want to see Messi in the Premier league.

I bet they’re kicking themselves that they sealed the deal for Grealish as quickly as they did now. One more day of negotiations and they’d have likely signed Messi instead!

Like you, I’d also love to see Messi play in the Premier League, but, sadly, he looks set to sign for the runners up of the farmer’s league instead. If we were dealing with the Roman Abromavich of a few years ago I’d be expecting Chelsea to offer a contract as well and am a little surprised that we haven’t given our history of signing big name players at the end of their careers.

As things stand though, I can only see PSG and Inter making contract offers and his friendship with Neymar and the allure of an easy league will probably be enough to tip the scales in PSG’s favor.


2.) 07 Aug 2021 10:08:56
I assume Pep would have known for sure whether Messi would be available as they are good friends. But surely he would still have persevered with potentially 5-6 seasons with Grealish over 2 with Messi. It would have been incredible to see though and a shame that we probably never will.

Football is a funny old sport.

Last season we came 2nd in the league and 2nd in the europa. This is widely considered a failure.

Yet we celebrate when someone wins silver or even bronze in the Olympics, and take the silver medal GB just won in taekwondo, that means he lost the final, but we still think what an achievement that is.

Maybe we need to reassess how we view footballing success, especially in how we as fans can treat players.

There's a girl down the road from me competing in the swimming. She's just a talented girl who has done amazingly well to qualify for the Olympics. That in itself is an amazing achievement.

She's not a multi billion pound corporation with the highest wage bill in football, with the highest net spend of any team in the world in the last 5 years.

Manchester United finishing second is a failure in the same way Usain Bolt finishing second is a failure.

If someone has trained their whole life and finishes with a bronze medal, they should be applauded because it's an amazing achievement.

Man Utd losing the Europa league final to a mid table Spanish team will always be a failure.


2.) 27 Jul 2021 00:23:50
Is it not more to do with expectation? If Adam Peaty has come 2nd I’m not sure we would have been celebrating that.


3.) 27 Jul 2021 06:35:59
One of my friends competed in the Commonwealth games a few years ago and won Silver. I thought that was great. He just turned around and said I'm just the first of the losers.
Success can be viewed in many forms, at United it is winning trophies, nothing less will do.


4.) 27 Jul 2021 06:59:19
RedD,

You are going to compare an international multi sport with the PL? Olympics involves athletes from nations across the world and any medal is a pride moment for the entire nation and will be celebrated. Not to forget that every medal adds to the nation's medals tally as well.

You would also need to factor in that most of these Olympic sports don't get the same level of financial backing in a lot of nations like football does. Yet the athletes work hard with whatever resources they have to get there and perform the best they can. We should certainly appreciate that.


5.) 27 Jul 2021 09:47:43
How a person defines success is subjective. In football terms is winning at all costs success? Is losing matches but playing wonderful thrilling football failure or is that success?

Is Marcus Rashford a success because he has played well but even more so because he has used that as a platform for raising the profile of socially disadvantaged kids?

I always told my children that exam results didn't define them. They all did well and have degrees and good jobs but would I love them less if they had not?

Success in my eyes is to be the best person you can be. That includes not wasting a God given talent but more importantly to be a decent human being.

That also applies to the Club as a whole. Look after the staff, look after the players, help the local community and support the struggling lower league clubs which are at the base of the football pyramid from where the players of tomorrow can come and last but not least look after us the fans.


6.) 27 Jul 2021 12:43:05
All valid points.

I personally don't think we need a trophy every year to be successful.

I think being in the mix and having a realistic chance of winning either the league or the champions league, and winning one of them every few seasons, would be a good long term basis for what I would call successful. Along with entertaining football which is absolutely fundamental to maintaining my interest.


7.) 27 Jul 2021 18:41:58
It’s not all that strange really when you think about it. Our Olympic athletes are competing at the biggest and oldest sporting event on the planet against the world’s best athletes. We were competing in a Mickey Mouse European competition and got beaten by a side that failed to make the top four in Spain. As for the league, you don’t get a trophy for finishing second and we were once again beaten to the title by a huge margin.

Don’t get me wrong, we made progress last season, but we’re still miles away from where we need to be. With a few more big signings, we’ll hopefully get a little closer this season.

The comment on here about some fans loving Ole and believing in him had got me thinking.

Honestly, I like the guy and would love him to succeed. But fundamentally, he isn't a very good manager. I don't see how anyone can think otherwise.

I'll give you that he has improved the mood around the club. It was rubbish before he came when Mou was here and he has improved that.

But tactically he isn't great. All he seems able to do is set up for the counter attack, which is the simplest strategy to implement. Any manager should be able to do that, especially if you have a very fast front line and someone like Bruno or pogba to make the long pass. But you need more than that at the top level. The majority of managers in the PL would be better than him tactically.

In game management isn't great. We've seen countless times when we've been desperate for a change and it either hasn't come, has come too late, or has been some kind of mind boggling defensive change when we need to be more attacking. Almost every manager would be an improvement on Ole here.

So what does he bring that is at least as good or better than his peers? It's team spirit and feel good factor within the dressing room.

So what to do?

It's obvious!

Get a good manager in.

Ole takes over as Fred the Red!

RedD

1.) 12 Jun 2021 15:38:54
I think he still had a lot of dead wood that aren’t good enough to clear. The games that your implying we need an attacking change, we have had all the players capable of making an impact on the pitch already. We need depth before ole can actually make the changes you want him to. We have improved and play a lot better but you can’t compare it too when we had fergie as the team and manager were all world class.

Remember fergie took 3 years before it clicked for him.


2.) 12 Jun 2021 16:00:46
Yeah, true, but fergie had a little more experience that Ole, to the point where it was believable he could make something of what he had, where as Ole doesn't have the experience to enable that belief.


3.) 12 Jun 2021 16:03:34
Gazza, I wanted Ole to succeed. Unfortunately he doesn't have the nous of a top class manager.

He shows favoritism towards certain players and literally burn them out.
His in-game management hasn't improved in 3 years.
This will be his 4th season in charge and still we don't see a pattern in attack or playing style.

He has been failing continuously in the knockout games. So how can we be optimistic with him in charge?


4.) 12 Jun 2021 16:36:57
Nobody would be dumb enough to compare Fergie's situation to when he just arrived at United to that of Ole's. Fergie had proven himself at Aberdeen, breaking the duopoly of the old firm in Scotland and bettering Real Madrid in Europe. Like a poster said any manager could have come in and change the mood at United, just do the opposite of what Mourinho did. So to class that as an achievement under Ole like he worked some kind of miracle is laughable. Let's give him a chance and when he doesn't deliver we can continue blaming the board/ owners and players for Ole' ineptitude as a manager. No wonder he stated he doesn't oversee/ handle the coaching sessions, because he knows his limitations. A single celled organism has more tactical acumen than Ole.


5.) 12 Jun 2021 17:00:53
Is it that hard? don't Let players try and be bigger than you, sort your team and make them listen. Be there if they need you and make them be the best you can. How hard can it be? I have managed 30 plus staff and some did not like me, I am the manager and you will do the best you can and I will help you achieve it.


6.) 12 Jun 2021 18:05:10
Ole hasn't done enough to get the sack is the simple truth. He will only go if we fail to get UCL.

I think Ole is sorting some of the mess out and whoever comes after him will have a good balanced squad and much better place than the team Ole took over.


7.) 12 Jun 2021 21:30:24
To be fair, seems He’s almost more suited to the DoF role to set the culture, Atmosphere and football direction without having to go into the detail on the training ground. Leave that to a quality head coach.

Seen that too, and apparently from a reliable source.

Would be great for us if he does stay. Means we can focus on other positions this window and worry about a cf next year if the problem hasn't taken care of itself via greenwood or rashford.

First to leave? We were the leaders! We never left! It fell apart around us.

But I don't suddenly have more respect Chelsea and City, they were happy enough to go along with it, they didn't take the high road here, they just bottled it.

Surprised that romero couldn't be a starter for a Premier league club. I think he's done well for us and clubs could do a lot worse.

I really don't understand the profiteering thing.

I assume it means that the club can't extend the contract by the additional year just so they can sell the player and make a profit.

But if we did extend it and an offer came it, I assume we could still accept it.

Ed02, can you explain the concept in a bit more detail or perhaps point to another source worth reading?

RedD

{Ed002's Note - The concept is that you cannot extend to make money but if the player is sold the profit, or a negotiated profit, would go to him.}

Honestly, the fact the you and I, and no doubt quite a few others, have Cavani as our favourite player of the 20s is an indictment of the rest of our squad.

Although I will say that Rashy is a very close second and another player I have much affection for.

Ya know, Jones a dcm with donny would actually work quite well.

I'd love it if we see a Jones resurgence in midfield. Would be such a great story for him personally and for the club for sticking with him.

In fact, this is my new football fantasy.
