Lukaku on his way. Could be a good day!


1.) 08 Aug 2019 11:24:34
With Lukaku on his way it’s already a good day
We have turned a page.



13 Mar 2017 21:04:18
Its almost painful watching Pogba cruise round. He doesn't play like he cares at all. Should have closed the kante shot down.


1.) 13 Mar 2017 22:22:37
WAlking off the pitch hugging conte laughing and smiling not a care in the world. Needs to be took aside and talked to!

{Ed025's Note - that looked bad rogie i agree mate..

2.) 13 Mar 2017 22:25:38
Have to be honest I was expecting more from him. he talks the talk but that's it, then again he's still a young lad and not many young lads can dominate a midfield. He does need to roll his sleeves up though and worry less about what colour his hair is going to be.

3.) 13 Mar 2017 22:45:34
waste of time and waste of money.

4.) 13 Mar 2017 22:51:10
I know the price tag isn't his fault but he really could at least look like he's trying. He's about as mobile as Fellaini but with a few flicks and tricks.

{Ed025's Note - he is still very young 2toms and i think he has talent, but i must agree that he needs to show a bit more grit mate..

5.) 14 Mar 2017 01:22:31
He seems like he's jus not motivated at all. Too much ego in him.

6.) 14 Mar 2017 07:21:39
He's more frustrating than a young Ronaldo with only a fraction of the talent.

7.) 14 Mar 2017 07:47:05
From what I can gather regarding Ronaldo there was pressure from within the dressing room for SAF to have a word. Sir Alex duly obliged and the rest is history. Ronaldo wanted to be the best player in the World and put hours on the training pitch honing his craft, Pogba spends hours having his hair done, he needs to knuckle down and get his act together.

8.) 14 Mar 2017 15:51:27
He needs a spell on the bench- it'll teach him a valuable lesson that he is far from irreplaceable and must do more. Lad has potential but always tries to make the simple difficult. Last nite wasnt a surprise as we are still a work in progress but herrera challenge was silly and immature. He has been picking up more and more cards lately for stupid things and another one who needs to watch he doesn't overplay / get caught with the ball.

9.) 14 Mar 2017 09:40:40
Totally agree ed025. He just frustrates the life out of me. I want to see him grab hold of games. Mourinho today saying he was the best player on the pitch?! Good management or blinkered?

{Ed025's Note - im afraid good management and jose mourinho cannot be in the same sentence these days 2toms, if anyone out there has found a plot..please return it to jose as he seems to have lost one mate..



25 Jul 2015 11:50:32
The surprise is Gerrard on loan!!

Now that would be a f'ing surprise


1.) 25 Jul 2015 14:47:00
More chance of seeing Santa Claus in the flesh than Gerrard in a united shirt lol.

2.) 25 Jul 2015 17:45:21
Funny how someone on these pages still hit the 'agree' button

3.) 25 Jul 2015 22:20:31
As much as I dislike the guy it would hilarious to see the internet meltdown.

4.) 25 Jul 2015 23:38:00
Give Gerrard the chance to FINALLY win the EPL

Can we have a quick overview of what we maybe looking for come tge summer?
Who is likely to leave?



{Ed002's Note - Ask later in the week please.}

1.) 13 Apr 2019 09:48:22
Great thanks Ed.



30 Oct 2018 22:49:18
Question for the Ed's.

Why are most contracts set at a max of 5 years?

Surely if you sign a player at 20, you would tie him to 10 year or more?
If they fail it will probably happen in the first 5 years anyways and you could cut your losses at any time?


{Ed002's Note - The rules limit contracts to 5 years plus the season you are in.}

1.) 30 Oct 2018 23:05:13
Thanks eds.
What is the rational to that rule then? If both parties want the deal?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know why that period was chosen but it does not concern anybody at all.}

2.) 31 Oct 2018 08:40:43
On the topic of contracts ed002, has there been any progress in the clubs efforts to renew the contracts of david de gea and anthony martial?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything having changed at this time.}

3.) 31 Oct 2018 11:25:09
Are both de Gea and Martial looking to depart or renew?

{Ed002's Note - Martial would like to leave but because Manchester United over priced him in the summer and would not consider any sort of part exchange dals they will likely look to extend his contract. Some sort of convoluted loan to buy deal was proposed but that will likely not be in favour of the player. De Gea will be regretting not pushing harder for the Real Madrid move but you can expect that there will be an offer coming for him - the player will need to make a decision.}

4.) 31 Oct 2018 12:40:35
Ok thanks Ed. Would be good if they stayed but can understand the reasons for going.

{Ed002's Note - The club will look to the one year extension but that could also leave them with miffed players who don't want to be there.}

5.) 31 Oct 2018 14:51:22
Could i be greedy and ask which club will be putting in an offer for De Gea Ed002? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - PSG remain keen.}

6.) 31 Oct 2018 15:21:44
Thanks Ed002.

7.) 31 Oct 2018 23:35:58
Are united watching any potential replacments for De Gea? Or are they confident on persuading him to stay.

{Ed002's Note - Right now the options might prove to be:
Joel Pereira (GK) - MU may opt to utilise Pereira as first choice
Jan Oblak (GK) - interest from the club will be there but the desire of the player to move may not be still
Aleksandr Maksimenko (GK) - Spartak would not be keen to sell but he has been watched on a number of occasions.
Danijel Subasic (GK) Monaco are going through changes and would like to hold on to Subasic but they know a couple of high profile sides, including MU have been looking at him.}

8.) 01 Nov 2018 23:26:25
Thanks for the reply ed, hopefully De Gea does get persuaded to stay with us.



21 Oct 2018 10:25:11
What are people's thoughts on Asensio?
Looks Like Madrid will sell, would be a great for unlocking defences!

Young and eager to play too.


1.) 21 Oct 2018 11:36:40
Very good player, would take him if Sanchez gets a role on the right, Rashford and Martial upfront and then he can nail down a role on the left.

2.) 21 Oct 2018 11:56:14
Not for me, one of these hype players that flatter to deceive. Watched him many times and rarely see him have a good game. Rather go back for Bale and would probably cost the same.

3.) 21 Oct 2018 12:06:30
Asensio is special and could be good for us and as an alternative wehould target Pulisic or Dembele. Any of these 3 will be class for us.

4.) 21 Oct 2018 16:25:28
Beast, Bale is 7 or 8 year older and probably at the same level.
So as far as an investment, Asensio must be a better option.

I assume we will look at defence anyways.

5.) 21 Oct 2018 20:01:25
Yes Ruud, I factored that in mate. I think Bale is far better than Asensio, just age would mean similar price. Rather have Bale as Asensio would be a huge disappointment in the Prem I think. Rather Liverpool spend the £70m+ it would take.



05 Aug 2018 11:47:39
Well if this week is a quiet one then it's going to be a long long season.

I can't help feeling that this will be JM last with us.

He has never truly looked settled in the north.

Question is, who next after him?

I don't want panic buys either. Use the youth. True football fans will be more patient with this side if we were developing the exciting talent with in the club.

Anyways. roll on Friday. I miss the football.


1.) 05 Aug 2018 12:15:04
I think as a club the most important thing we could do as a club is appoint someone who gets it. Use the youth like you say, Jose has already alluded to the them, but that they’re so young. There’s a big talent pool, I’d love José to give us 2 more years, hopefully win a trophy or two then maybe see how Carrick is doing coaching wise etc.
Whilst it doesn’t look like it, there’s a hell of a lot to be positive about for the future.

2.) 05 Aug 2018 12:23:01
Laurent Blanc?

3.) 05 Aug 2018 12:26:50
Although it’s pre season we have seen the style of football Pep, Poch, Klopp, Sarri and Emery will employ attacking football then there is us with Jose. Does anyone actually believe we will not see the same dire football Jose has given us these past two seasons this year too. I think this is going to be on part with his last season at chelsea.

4.) 05 Aug 2018 13:00:32
Agreed Jamie. Unfortunately, we'll play the same style of football, with a no lose attitude at the expense of everything.
All other managers you mentioned will play attacking football. Liverpool have made the best signings that improve their weaknesses. City are City, head and shoulders above us. Leaves arsenal, chelsea and Spurs. Arsenal looking good in preseason and Chelsea have made a couple of good signings. Spurs are the only ones who have not invested yet.
I think we're 4th at best, and if we sell Pogba and Martial with not suitable replacements, then we won't make top 4.

5.) 05 Aug 2018 13:39:54
Papers were all claiming Zidane is lined up to take over as and when Mourinho leaves. Also read today that Gerrard would only be interested in Liverpool, Man Utd and Arsenal if he does well at Rangers, would be an odd one for sure.

I personally would go all in for Poch, young and seems to get the best out of his players and develops youth well.

6.) 05 Aug 2018 13:46:16
I would take Zidane in a flash. He hasn't done too bad has he?

{Ed002's Note - ZZ has no interest in coaching this season at all and may well look to the option of becoming a Sporting Director/Director of Football. Sam Allardyce will be available to see the season out if needs be.}

7.) 05 Aug 2018 14:37:40
Ed, think the reports, including the BBC, where about United preparing for him taking over next season should Mourinho leave.

8.) 05 Aug 2018 15:04:27
I really hope Big Sam is not needed ha.
I wonder if Giggs might be asked as an interim.

9.) 05 Aug 2018 16:06:36
I always wonder would we be any worse off had we not just given it to Giggs when Fergie left?



10 May 2018 21:11:47
Why is it that when I watch this Utd side without Martial and Rashford I feel like I wanna sleep!

We are like Liverpool under the fat controller.

I hope we bring some excitement next year.


1.) 10 May 2018 22:47:27
I don't know mate, those two both played against Brighton and that was even worse (hard to fathom) .

Watching City and Liverpool only goes to highlight further how woefully tedious almost every game we play in is to watch. Shame.

2.) 10 May 2018 23:44:06
Isn't the point here that the two top teams that everyone likes to watch in liverpool and citeh play attacking football, some have said but yeah what has klopp won, well being in the final i think helps answer that one, most young footballers from europe all want to play for liverpool and citeh because of the buzz surrounding the club and how the players exude confidence and the joy wanting to play football as united used to play it, do united exude that same air of excitement and anticipation?, even finishing 2nd doesn't seem to be lifting the malaise that some believe has set in, maybe the summer signings will turn things around, but i have a feeling that if martial is sold, and goes to a club who put their arm around him and coax him along rather that trying to sergeant major him into doing things, i reckon he'll turn out to be a better player than mo salah, if i'm wrong then okay, i just hope jose lightens up a bit, he's a top manager for sure, but this earning his trust thing is s bit too devisive for me, he should take them out on the lash, let everyone have a bitch about whatever issues are weighing them down then wipe the slate clean and crack on from there, otherwise the chinese whispers old tosh could set in, and nobody wants to see that-right where's that barley wine gone.

In terms of attacking flare we have Chong and Greenwood not to mention Gomes.

Fernandes would be great don't get me wrong but as it stands we have had a good transfer window.

Who is the real issue at the club?
Is it JM or the board?

I don't understand why it's so so bad.

Some one save our beloved club!

We’d have to be tits to spend that on an old man.
He fits Italy. slower pace and he will get a stack of goals.

We need to look forward!

What is his deal.
I don’t see how a guy that has all this in front of him looks so out of shape.

I read somewhere that his attitude at Southampton was poor too.

I can't believe JM can't get this team going. First time I'm saying it but we need fresh faces and ideas.
