Spending x y and z on high profile players has left us wanting and not getting value for money so to speak.

Sometimes I think to myself, we would of been better off buying players who are premiership proven and don't cost too much. The high price tag and expectations really seem to knock our players wind out,

Jose holobas, Ryan Fraser, idrissa Gueya, Raul jimenez and Ben Mee.

These players could easily do better than some players at MUFC and cost far less than most recent signings.


1.) 17 Feb 2019 17:00:29
Disagree but fail to give your opinion.

I suppose our players are the best in their position yes? Holobas and Raul Jimenez have been playing with heart for the their team and manager ALL SEASON. Idrissa Gueya stats are all higher than NM go check it out Ryan Frasier has been a stand out midfielder for AFC Bournemouth ad Ben Mee is a left centre ex MC player head and shoulders above Jones at left centre.

So state your disagreement.

Looks like 4th might be securable after all.

That and sarri getting Sacked at 6.30 tonight.


1.) 10 Feb 2019 18:57:53
I don't know what's happening at Chelsea its a right mess, if they sack sarri it's back to square one again.


2.) 10 Feb 2019 22:34:22
Lampard will take over next season if he gets Derby promoted. I am sure they will follow the United lead for some positivity.


3.) 11 Feb 2019 09:53:35
Grant or Hiddink for caretaker then they'll look for whoevers the top rated coach in Europe and ruin him.


4.) 11 Feb 2019 11:48:31
Poch to chelsea?


5.) 11 Feb 2019 12:16:50
That would be funny and solves that issue.


6.) 11 Feb 2019 12:38:08
Jose return?


7.) 12 Feb 2019 08:19:09
When you allow the players to determine who they play for and who they don’t there is always potential for anarchy.


8.) 12 Feb 2019 11:22:23
When you play kante as an atracking cm there is the potential for anarchy.


9.) 15 Feb 2019 13:21:28
Lol jred. Both red mans and your own are true.

But that's he culture that Chelsea have created Red man and I think it's too far gone now to be reversed in the modern game.

With fellani off the payroll, Ed is now willing to offer Martial an increase from 120k to 195k to sign a new 5 year contract and D. De Gea will get a nice 100k weekly top up if he signs a new 5 yr contract too.

Happy days ahead.


 

 

23 Jan 2019 23:00:49
Their may be 15 games to go that decide our final league position and I'm a little bit worried to say the least. CS is a liability in the box and PJ lacks the tools to be a decent defender. I wish Bailly took the chance to get back into the team due to the fact that the LCB position is our wekest point in the team.

We should be going all out to get Kalidou koulibly in the team but we will twiddle our thumbs and watch klopp sign him up and kick ourselves for not signing him.


1.) 24 Jan 2019 03:39:06
Kalidou is happy where he is, and not available for transfer for now.


2.) 24 Jan 2019 12:15:39
He is the obvious choice at CB, strong in the air, great with the ball at his feet and prefers to operate as the left hand centre back.

Yet, making this transfer in January without a full time manager was never going to happen. He will cost a club record fee for a defender possibly for any player.

You don't break club record fees for a player while you don't have a manager. If the next manager doesn't want him then the club have wasted loads of money and look very foolish.


3.) 24 Jan 2019 13:32:33
Bailly has never played LCB, he always plays on the right of the two.

We can't pin our hopes on the accident waiting to happen that is Bailly. If Arsenal are interested we should let him go, as Arsenal/ Europa League is his level.

As Kenedy said, Koulibaly seems happy where he is as has been mentioned by 002 more than once.

If we're to push on and challenge then we need to prioritise an established CB with experience of winning titles, and move Bailly, Rojo and Jones on to clubs suited to their level.


4.) 24 Jan 2019 14:24:57
Correct me if I'm wrong but hasn't Lindelof been starting LCB and been playing well?

I think the issue is finding a RCB to partner him.


5.) 24 Jan 2019 14:57:55
Lindelof played on the LCB under Mourinho but looks much better on the RCB where has been played by Ole.


6.) 24 Jan 2019 15:23:35
Koulibaly maybe unsettled in Italy because of the continuous racist attacks.
At 27, he would be a brilliant top class addition to our team. He could have similar impact which Van Dijk did at Liverpool.


7.) 24 Jan 2019 19:09:03
If there is any truth to the ongoing speculation then surely a punt on the £30m Alderweireld at a quarter of the price is the way to go? A proven top Prem defender whose absense would put a chink in Tottenham’s armour too.


8.) 24 Jan 2019 19:59:55
Spenno, I wouldn't be upset if we brought in Alderweireld. I do have two slight concerns with him though. Firstly his injury record recently hasn't been great, and at his age that is unlikely to improve. Secondly he is exclusively a right sided CB, which is the same as all our CB's bar Rojo. So that would mean one of our current CB's would have to play in their weaker position. Which isn't ideal.

That being said Alderweireld is an excellent CB.


9.) 25 Jan 2019 10:46:37
If Kouilably isn't available maybe we can enquire about his National team's CB partner Salif Sane (I know he just join Schalke this season but . ) or Jonathan Tah.


10.) 26 Jan 2019 06:45:38
I thought Bailly took a good step forward against Arsenal last night. He and Lindelof May still prove to be a good combination. Both are still on the young side for CB’s.
An experienced (though not old) CB would still be a good addition.
Then try Tuanzebe as the 4th, Smalling as a last resort.


11.) 26 Jan 2019 18:37:42
Only a handful must watch our games. I'm well aware Lindelof played LCB but that was under Mourinho. KenedyAndy is aware of my point

Lindelof is playing RCB now and Jones was LCB and was a liability hence me saying LCB is our weak point. It seems some posters would rather find argument or flaws on this site for any reason.

We are playing after Mourinho so my comments are present in position not asking for judgemental biased views poking posters with stick

As 002 would say RTFP and proof read h5y to think through.


 

 

20 Jan 2019 21:51:01
I guess it's a conditioning and fitness issue that becomes more and more of a struggle to hold on to the leading score.

It is more likely down to mourinhos out dated game where we were becoming stagnated in our play. The sideways and backwards play meant no pressing and less work rate so fitness levels need to be drastically improved.

Enough gloom and doom 7 wins from 7 well done Ole GGMU.


1.) 21 Jan 2019 06:05:24
Yes, the intensity of our pressing drops down drastically after the hour mark.
Hopefully, it gets picked up gradually over the coming months.


2.) 21 Jan 2019 09:37:24
There are several issues when settling into a new style of play.

For us we have gone from a team that runs the least to attempting to press higher and more frequently. That level of fitness isn't something that comes out of thin air and will take time to build up.

Also attacking patterns and combinations which just didn't happen before will have to be worked on, improved and perfected.

February is a tough month, we have been fortunate that we have had a run of games which on paper at least are easier to practice and improve. Over the next month we will see what this squad and this manager is truly capable of.


3.) 21 Jan 2019 11:13:27
Lingard and Herrera are two that work their bollocks off and then drop off mid way through the second half in games. I hope that Sanchez can seamlessly fit in to the fluid front three and that will alleviate one problem, Fred should likewise be able to dovetail in the midfield but he's only shown flashes of promise thus far. If both of those start playing like we know they can then we should be able to blitz teams for 90 minutes. Sadly, as Gary Neville said in commentary vs Spurs I don't see where Lukaku or Mata fits in to it.


4.) 23 Jan 2019 20:12:27
Thanks everyone for your posts. In time the fitness will get better.

I just want to rant about MUTV

I've just watched classic matches clip while the women's half time came

Keane was cut out of the whole show
Goal against Juventus no keane just the ball after his header
Goal against arsenal also cut out

Whatever he is off the pitch what he done for the shirt was a lot more than anyone in the current team yet pogba and JL are idolised on it as model pros

Go and ask my BE MUTV 6 Roy Keane's on the pitch would do better than all 11

Disgusted by that.

Its a nonsense.


2.) 03 Feb 2020 01:57:05
I stopped my subs 6 years ago, they're a bunch of amateurs with their heads in the sand. Reminds me of some north Korean station where no one is allowed to criticize the owners or the establishment. It's an absolute joke.


 

 

31 Jan 2020 18:43:43
With time running short I'd look to homegrown and make an enquiry to Brentford

Ollie is bagging himself a nice few goals and we I'd take Mbeumo too and send his France team mate AM the other way.


 

 

10 Jan 2020 19:12:28
mentioned Ndidi on here a while back and got chewed for it. Shappy especially made it known it was not fifa and get my head out of the clouds.

But alas the great Shappy has spoken and Ndidi is now a great player.

{Ed047's Note - how weird. 🤦‍♂️🤣


1.) 10 Jan 2020 19:31:55
I think I've always been fairly consistent about players. I have always said Ndidi is a good player, this season he has really sharpened up his defending. He always got high numbers of tackles and interceptions but he also made too many fouls often in silly or dangerous positions.

However, as good as he is at shielding the back four he still lacks in ability on the ball. He passing is limited, uncreative and safe. Nothing wrong with that.

However, that might be the thing that holds him back from moving to an elite club. The top clubs expect to have the majority of possession during a game and won't have to defend all that much. For a player like Ndidi who thrives in winning back possession and defending there is less importance on this kind of player.

Look how City play, if you put Ndidi in there instead of Fernandinho or Rodri then City lose a player who can start attacks and recycle possession quickly and progressively but gain a player who'll win a few more tackles in midfield. The issue is City normally have 60-70% possession most weeks and few teams will play through the middle against City so the ball won't be in the areas that Ndidi plays in for him to win it.

Ndidi is a great player for a side that will be expected to defend as much as the attack most weeks. For a side that will only spend 15-20% of any given match defending at most, his usefulness will be greatly diminished.


2.) 10 Jan 2020 19:56:55
Altho he not an amazing passer he plays forward passes most of the time . he will easy play for top club in NXT 2 years . he's a lot better than your giving him credit for . his reading of the game and immense pressing and timing of tackle means the team can play higher and wins balls back quickly with player like him in the team . not everyone needs to be an amazing passer in a team tat keeps the ball .

{Ed001's Note - I would rather have Ndidi than Rodri in the Prem all day every day. His passing is much better than Shaps is giving him credit for.}


3.) 10 Jan 2020 21:09:26
Can't get Kante. He's the next best thing. Get in him and saul with a number 10 and RW and we'd be seriously cooking.

A proper coach on top of that and it'd be a completely different side.

If they're still looking for a DOF, I'll step up 😂.


4.) 10 Jan 2020 23:15:33
Personally I would look at Choudhury at Leicester if we were going to look at anyone.


5.) 11 Jan 2020 12:25:12
I'd take Nididi in a heartbeat. I think he's highly under rated. It took some player to seemlessly fill Kantes boots which he did. I think as he's not got a huge loud personality he doesn't stand out sitting in midfield doing all the dirty work. I'd imagine he's probably very humble and professional given as he's doing a business degree as well I'd say he's the very type of player we should be signing.


 

 

05 Jan 2020 18:01:10
I think its time I spoke out cause it's been bugging me ever since.

AAA please change your name back to No Midfield

Ever since you changed your name the footy has been poor so hopefully we get some order back

Red.

{Ed047's Note - No Manager would be more apt and I'd bet they still probably couldn’t play any worse.


1.) 06 Jan 2020 00:25:52
Evening Red, I could change it to "No Clue".
In all seriousness though, it's been years since the NoMidfield name, and we still have no midfield!


 

 

09 Nov 2019 20:36:41
Or you could buy a cheap sub of me and watch every footy game and film and ppv event for a year.

But that's the only bit of news coming out of man utd that's true and something was bound to flare up.

Great response to the OP Ken! I could not argue any of that statement. Ole and the players have excelled in the last 2 weeks that we now hope the form continues for the rest of the season. The last 2 games have been thoroughly entertaining and have a feel good factor for the players and the folks on this site. I won't touch wood for we should be turning a Corner and after 5 years? We can slowly bring back the fear factor.

Ken

I assume the players still felt angered at Poch not playing Lucas moura in the CL final? Thus began the Pochfall and we know the rest.

The question is.

Let him recharge. and sign him in the summer? Or go all out for Allegri assuming Ole does not improve.

If he was not wearing our colours i'd be convinced he is the ref. He always seems to be close to the action but never contributes to the game. The "panther sign" he calls his celebration? I prefer to think of his pointed indexes! More so as the gap between his goal and his last assist. He needs to hold them close to his face due to his lack of vision.
