What's happening with Rabiot? Looks a good player, right age IMO. Pretty sure he's on a free which probably means he'd be asking for higher wages. Has anyone seen a great deal of him? Would he be a good signing.

Reports are that his contract with PSG runs until the 30th June and so he can’t sign for anyone else until then so unlikely to be any announcement until closer to that date.

{Ed001's Note - he could have signed months ago.}

2.) 23 May 2019 18:05:09
Are we interested in him Ed001? How highly do you rate him if at all?

{Ed001's Note - his wage demands have put a lot off, including United. Hard to say how good he is now, he has not played for a long time and it could be that his desire and hunger has been blunted. As they were a huge part of what made him such a good player, he might well have peaked already.}

3.) 23 May 2019 18:12:40
We could make it a trio of lazy Frenchmen with questionable attitudes.

{Ed001's Note - lazy? Rabiot was a grafter mate. He was kind of like Herrera 2.0. Played like the Spaniard but was better in every area of the game. The attitude though, well he does think rather highly of himself, but PSG have treated him appallingly and I am glad they are getting f all from him.}

4.) 23 May 2019 18:31:05
I agree with Ed his work rate is what made him standout more than anything we could do with 11 players willing to cover every blade of grass on the pitch every game. Ed do you see him possibly lowering the wage demands for a decent move?

{Ed001's Note - I think he will have to unless he is intending to retire this summer!}

5.) 23 May 2019 19:08:24
He could have signed a contract with any club outside france 6 months ago hoggy.
As per ed002.
He nearly signed for barca. Wage demands and his mother who acts as agent scuppered by moving his wage demands
He is being considered by madrid but not 1st choice
May be a suitably extensive option if pogba leaves united.
Liverpool are another possible option
Bayern have other preferences inn mind.
He does come with baggage. Significant baggage.
Think i got most of that right.

6.) 23 May 2019 19:46:06
Thanks for the replies, but of a mixed bag then really.

{Ed001's Note - it is the money that is the key factor though. It is huge.}

7.) 23 May 2019 19:58:49
001 it was more a nod to the stereotypical French workrate, which I know doesn’t apply to every Frenchman, but from my experience visiting France their attitude to work is relaxed shall we say. With Martial and Pogba in our team it seemed apt. Bad joke, sorry

I agree I too think he has been treated poorly, but I’m sure there’s a bit of give and take.

{Ed001's Note - sorry mate, I don't actually have any experience dealing with French at work, they were always on strike.....}

8.) 23 May 2019 21:01:00
Hahaha well there you go Ed 😂.

I'm not convinced Ole will be the man to take us forward and to be honest that a debate for another day but I do love his press conferences. He's honest, comes across really well and is proud as punch to be sat there as manager of Manchester United. Love listening to him talk, let's hope it's 7/ 7 after the weekend and we close the gap a little more. Going forward who knows what will happen but the here and now is brilliant.

Rom is Red

1.) 18 Jan 2019 21:26:57
I’m not convinced, but,

1. He’s won 6 of 6, something Moyes, LVG, and Jose failed to do.
2. He’s delighted to be the United Manager. And why not
3. He seems to, believe in bringing on the youngsters
4. He has been professional and positive throughout
5. He scored the winner in the Champions League final!

Frankly, if he wins the next 2 games, give him the job.

2.) 18 Jan 2019 22:05:47
No wait till end of the season.

3.) 18 Jan 2019 22:59:00
Ole IS the man.

4.) 19 Jan 2019 06:20:01
Tony, he's won 6 out of 6 something SAF and Busby failed to do as well but that does not make Ole better than them either. Can we not wait and see out the season. If Ole does well. enough then surely give it to him but just don't hand it to him based on the bounce effect.

5.) 19 Jan 2019 06:28:35
I do not understand why people are talking about whether if OGS is the right person or not. He just started and have an obligation to take the team to end of season. If he does well so Bt it then make him an offer. If not then I am sure he has done his best given his passion and love for the club afterwhich he will leave.
In the meantime it’s halftime season wise and we should support the club, manager and team. If OGS is not the right one then I’m sure the management should have done their job earmarking the next manager. I feel this debate about OGS being the right manager or not should be left till Apr/ May timeframe.
For me I’ll just enjoy the current journey and change of style of play. Damn! If we play well the manager is not the right person and damn if we don’t play well and it’s the the same argument. Difficult to please man 🤣🤣🤣.
My advice is just go with the flow.
Look forward to today’s game. I would love if we hit them with plenty of goals. No mercy and we don’t take any prisoners. Let’s get rical fans to start hating us more (just like before) . Fear Factor.

6.) 19 Jan 2019 12:16:41
Agree 666. There is a massive debate whether he should get it or not. But a decision doesn't need to be made until the end of the season.
By that time we will know more about him as a manager. After the next month we'll know more.
I'm just enjoying him being here for now whatever happens. He is like a breath of fresh air after Mourinho and I love everything about him. He says all the right things, has the players and supporters smiling and enjoying their football again. He's humble and is a club legend no mater what happens.
The pressure hasn't been on him or the players yet though since he came in. He is is in a sort of no lose situation whatever happens. That said if we carry on like this until the end of the season, make top 4 and go far in the cups it would be a difficult decision to get rid of him.
I still think Poch is probably the man to take us forward. I'm not getting too carried away at the moment but am enjoying the ride and would love nothing more than us going on to win things with Ole at the helm.

Hello all, haven't posted in ages but regularly check the pages. Hope everyone is well. With the window fast approaching what are people opinions on the board backing Jose? Should they? Do they have to looked at our current state? Or do they wait until Jose ultimately gets the push and wait for his replacement? I personally feel there will be signings but not typical Jose signings. I feel they will back him for younger targets with sell on value knowing if he leaves the new manager still may want/ be able to utilise the players. People like Pulisic, Ake, rather than Godin and Perisic. (Those are only examples before you shoot me down)! . This seems like a sensible approach to me. What are people's thoughts?

Rom is Red

1.) 20 Nov 2018 17:39:16
RIR. I've no idea what will happen. Jan is not the best time to buy.
We need better players but we also need players that a new coach can run with in case jose goes to madrid in the summer .
All we can do is wait and see, either way any new coach has to get a much better squad or he will go the same way as moyes lvg and jose. Nobody could win a league with what we have. We finished 2nd last seadon and that flattered the players at the coaches disposal.

2.) 20 Nov 2018 20:46:35
When everyone is sticking the boot into Mourinho, have a read of what Ed02 said on the rumours page. Basically the club are looking again at a Roma midfield player who has “been on the list since last January but he was well down the list of options available although remained of interest - but as the club have failed to sign who Mr Mourinho has wanted he is again an option”. I read that a few times to let it sink in.

Is Woodward supporting the manager if that is our plan? We cannot expect to get back to the top of anything if the club do not buy the right players, nor can we properly judge the manager if they don’t support him. Like Gary Neville said who is making these decisions? Who has or thinks they have more knowledge than the manager? If we buy on the cheap it just won’t work unless there is a great scouting network, who really thinks we have that? If the club don’t believe the manager is looking at the right players then sack him, get a dummy in who will try to work with what he is given before falling on his sword in 12 to 18 months. I have wondered before if the club were not buying the managers first choice. We shouldn’t buy for buying sake.

3.) 20 Nov 2018 21:52:07
I doubt many clubs these days simply buy whoever the manager wants. Jose has eluded to that a couple of times already. I think Liverpool have a recruitment team who collectively select players. I’m sure the Ed’s will know more.

4.) 20 Nov 2018 22:51:47
If they aren’t going to back him then they might aswell sack him. If they are backing him just to let him leave in the summer then it’s a waste of money for me, they need to let Jose see out his contract and back him all the way or if there are no incomings I think the writing will be on the wall.



12 Jul 2017 11:59:25
People seem to be far too hung up on prices for players and if people are "worth/ not worth" certain amounts. Football has officially gone mad and it won't be long, maybe even this window when a player moves for 100m. As fans we do contribute to the money at the clubs but we can't affect what they pay for transfers or wages so it's pretty pointless going on about it. If the board sanction 60m or Dier or 50m for Perisic then so be it. As long as they do the business on the pitch I'm not fussed how much they cost or if they are "worth" it. No player is worth millions, not a single one. It is what it is unfortunately. For as good as football is on the pitch it's an ugly monster off it.

Rom is Red

1.) 12 Jul 2017 12:34:32
I mainly agree but I have, as always, a small pedantic point.

A player is worth what the market says they are worth. The very fact that someone is bought for x amount means that is their worth by definition. We might not like it, but they are worth what clubs pay or they wouldn't pay it.

Apart from, you know, Leeds in 2004.

2.) 12 Jul 2017 12:39:47
What are you on about, Rom? You simply are not allowed to talk sense here anymore. Barring a few, you will be hounded on this post. Prepare yourself for the wrath from a certain "amazing" one.

3.) 12 Jul 2017 13:07:44

Couldn't agree more, the worst thing about the debate is that nobody actually has the facts on what the club are willing to spend or the ins and outs of the deals. To get the players we need we have to pay a premium, that is just life, clubs know we are the richest club in the world and know we are getting loads of TV money so are likely to ask for more.

Genuinely think some people would prefer us to sign nobody and just bring through youth players until we are bottom half of the table and then they can moan about that. IT is actually quite funny as 7-8 years ago when we weren't spending big people had green and gold scarfs and were saying the Glazers are allowing the club to drop down a level, now we have a club willing to invest and people are moaning about that, it may just be that certain 'amazing' people on here just like to moan.

Stop with the bullying guys, it is unbecoming of us.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion and as we all know the addage:

Opinions are like ar$eholes; we all have one.

5.) 12 Jul 2017 14:17:16
Good post gibbon .

On prices or wages, it's only an issue when it's
A. It's a player at another club.
B. It's a player someone doesn't rate .

The money if football especially the English game is nuts at the moment but that's the way it is .

11 Jul 2017 11:13:33
Long time reader but 1st time post. Just a quick hello and a thanks for some interesting reads on here. I'm hoping like the rest for 1 or 2 more quality signing but I have to say I'm liking the look of the squad Jose is building in his short time here. I'm hoping for a CM in next but unlike most of the press reports I'd prefer Dembele from Spurs rather than Dier and I also like Kondogbia at Inter. Just my personal opinion rather than hanging on to the next big name we're linked with.

Rom is Red

1.) 11 Jul 2017 11:22:14
Welcome to the mad house. You've just made me think that Red Rom would be a great user name.

2.) 11 Jul 2017 11:23:04
G'day Rom. I said exactly the same about Dembele from Spurs a while back although I don't think Dier is a bad player but he will be overpriced due to his nationality. Kondogbia I know very little of.

Jose has now splashed a whopping amount of cash since he has been here and I would like to see the rest of the gaps plugged by the youngsters as a manager has an obligation to the club to blood them - not just buy expensive players. My worry is if too many faces come in players like Rashford will be marginalised.

3.) 11 Jul 2017 11:53:53
Dembele is so underrated.

Would love him at united.

I think regardless of how many players we sign it's up to players like Rashford to work hard and fight for a place.

Top teams need competition to keep everyone on there toes.

4.) 11 Jul 2017 13:19:27
We missed a trick not getting Dembele when Berba went to Fulham, pretty sure the deals happened close together? Can't wait for the season to start now, I really do think we will be challenging for our title back this season. Time for people to step up now Wayne and Zlatan won't be in the dressing room. Cheers for the replies.

5.) 11 Jul 2017 13:56:48
Rom couldn't have said it better myself. Hopefully players like Lukaku and Pogba can put their juvenile attitudes aside and get serious when it gets tough next season to drag United to the title.

6.) 11 Jul 2017 14:28:06
i remember reading reports that we offered something like £5m for dembele when he was at fulham - we were never serious. would have been immense in our midfield.

7.) 11 Jul 2017 14:57:30
Juvenile attitudes? are they not allowed to enjoy themselves at work? Imagine no one relaxed at work and had a laugh haha. What a place that would be!
You need characters in the dressing room. Sometimes, "when it gets tough" as you said, you need players who can relax the atmosphere a bit. They are both very talented players and I'm sure they will show their worth on the pitch.

8.) 11 Jul 2017 15:00:52
I think he means funny haircuts and handshakes, there's a time and a place for all that but you'd never see Keane or Robson do it would you. I know times have changed but I do shake my head at times and think "just get back to basics and win football matches instead of practicing your next routine"! Maybe I'm just getting old!

9.) 11 Jul 2017 15:21:42
Keane was also a player that said Characters are needed in the dressing room for team spirit. He never had that much against Ronaldo or Beckham as long as they did the business on the pitch.

10.) 11 Jul 2017 16:23:03
Imagine players having celebration routines, we might have won the league and double in 1993 and 1994 if Giggs and Ince didn't have a celebration routine. Oh wait.

11.) 11 Jul 2017 20:48:41
Its a disgusting intolerable travesty i tell you GDS.

He looks made for the Premier League to me fella’s, would me more than happy if we could bring him in, Bruno Fernandez was also impressive tonight. Could do a lot worse than aiming to sign both up.

Jones was quality today, looked solid. Can't think of one moment where he looked shaky. Matic was brilliant, a great start today.

Only asked his potential cost to compare with other CB’s we have been linked with and what they would apparently cost. Maguire at 80M, Kouilibaly 100m, Toby 25m just be interested to see the fee we could bring him in for. Not much point in a forum if questions are met with such a sharp response. I’ll stick to reading posts only in future.

How much would he cost? I assume he has a buy out/ release? He has looked great whenever I have seen him, seems to read the game really well. Out of all the defenders we’ve been linked with over the past few windows I’ve been impressed with him the most.

If that’s the case and Ole has anything about him he should walk away. Clubs rotten at the minute. Manager has to make the big calls on the playing squad for me. I understand clubs have teams who collectively look at recruitment and things but if the manager wants a player out of the dressing room it should happen.
