I don't think it makes a huge difference who we play at the start of the season. We are going to be seeing several players leaving and likely several joining. Whatever the numbers the team needs to have a defined pattern of play and the players need to bed in. For this reason to expect us to get off to a flying start especially against settles teams like Chelsea and Wolves will be is unrealistic.


1.) 13 Jun 2019 13:05:40
Wolves could be a tougher test than Chelsea. They are a fantastic unit.
Whereas Chelsea lost their best player and very soon will loose their manager as well.

2.) 13 Jun 2019 13:23:02
Settled team like Chelsea? Are you serious?

You're aware they might not even have the same manager as now on the first day of the season and have lost their best player?

3.) 13 Jun 2019 14:28:38
Calling us (Chelsea) a settled team is a joke :p

Eden's gone, and Sarri will be too. Giroud is our starting striker (I actually like the guy, but let's be real here lol), Ruben and Callum are out injured, and our best CB (Rüdiger) is too.
On top of that we can't buy this summer. We're there for the taking, certainly in the early part of the season with those 3 starters missing through injury and Pulisic being new to the PL.

Dutch no 7 played quite well tonight. He might be the new sneidjer.


1.) 07 Jun 2019 09:24:48
I think that was Bergwin and we have been linked for a few months.



06 Jun 2019 15:20:05
Anybody fancy David Brooks from Bournemouth?, (no innuendos)


1.) 06 Jun 2019 15:34:38

2.) 06 Jun 2019 15:54:32
the only player i would take from them is fraser, think he's a cracking player.

3.) 06 Jun 2019 17:02:10
I agree with Bolger, Fraser.

4.) 06 Jun 2019 17:57:39
Brooks reminds me of Maddison a lot. Think he's going to be a good wee player.

5.) 07 Jun 2019 05:52:10
Not my type Salford.



05 Jun 2019 12:20:45
Interesting piece by Depay in his new book where he blames mainly himself for not showing how good he can be when he was with us. Seems he has matured as a person. I have no idea if we have a buy back clause but I would resign him if we did.


1.) 05 Jun 2019 12:52:23
he was average, shown glimpses of quality but he was young, new country, new environment,

but we didn't have the players to keep him in check and get his head down.

but he hasn't really set the french league alight.

2.) 05 Jun 2019 13:30:35
I'm not advocating resigning Depay but 22 goals and 16 assists in his first season in France and 17 goals and 14 assists this season.

39 goals and 30 assists in 89 games across two seasons, directly involved in 69 goals.

That's better than anyone else in playing in Ligue 1 who doesn't play play for PSG. Only Neymar and Mbappe have produced more.

That's phenomenal form. That said he plays best on the left and I don't think he would be a good fit for us. But you need to give him some credit he has done very well in France.

3.) 05 Jun 2019 13:39:33
Eds have said there's no such clause, and he seems to have an attitude problem which we don't need any more of.

He's another Ryan babel imo. Better as the big fish.

4.) 05 Jun 2019 14:08:35
Shappy don't you think he woukd be better than eg Martial on our left. Depay can pick a pass at least and supply our strikers.

5.) 05 Jun 2019 14:24:02
Salford, I feel Depay is one of those player who looks better when he is a big fish in a smaller pond. Zaha is the same.

Some players just can't elevate themselves when moving to a traditional "big" club.

Very few players go to a big club, get a chance, fail and move on only to move back to a big club and be a success.

6.) 05 Jun 2019 14:29:47
i stand corrected shappy.

7.) 05 Jun 2019 15:24:49
Yeah just like salah, de bryune etc etc etc!

8.) 05 Jun 2019 15:30:05
Depay would improve us 100%.

9.) 05 Jun 2019 15:47:51
Doesn't he play through the middle for Holland?

10.) 05 Jun 2019 16:57:41
Fans, read my post again. I said players who were given a chance at a top club. Neither Salah or Dr Bruyne were given a chance at Chelsea. Both only played a handful of games before being shown the door.

Delay was given plenty of chances, he didn't take any of them. His situation is very different to that of Salah and De Bruyne.

11.) 05 Jun 2019 17:37:09
Shappy if Pogba’s off field antics get your goat, you should see Depay’s. Although he does seem to have an affection for United with him posting himself in old shirts with club legends on the back.
I wouldn’t think signing him again would be a good idea. Like going back to an old girlfriend. There were reasons it didn’t work the first time. Mainly his lack of application.
As someone’s said, he’s probably best being the big fish.

12.) 05 Jun 2019 18:44:15
Its what he did here that counts. I don't care that he is doing well elsewhere in fact i'm pleased for him.
Depay is a good player but he was crap for us.
The same will happen with the likes of herrera or if they go pogba lukaku martial. whomever.
If they excel elsewhere who cares if they were not doing well for us.
Nobody or very few that get to llay for united are bad players but if they are not good for us who cares if they leave and do well elsewhere.
This is a tough club to play for and its simply not for everybody. Some just can't hack it here. It doesn't matter what the reason is if its not working or looks like it won't work. Get rid and let both parties severe ties and move on. Then don't look back at the coulda woulda shoulda's.

13.) 05 Jun 2019 18:53:34
I hear all the reservations about him. Will be interesting to see how he plays for the Dutch against England. I think Ed 02 said that he moved too early to us.

14.) 05 Jun 2019 18:57:01
Depay was sold too early or was bought too early. He does have something about him but it might just be too late for him to come back now.

I can see him going to athletico Madrid in a year or two.

Ken, do you think we will be signing Fernandes? . I just read your post on the rumours page.

15.) 05 Jun 2019 19:27:35
Mark Hughes.

16.) 05 Jun 2019 20:08:03
Well done jred, I know I could count on you to find a player who did it. But let's be honest Hughes retired nearly 30 years ago.

I did say it was very rare, but not impossible. So your one case in nearly 40 years probably does count as rarely. 🤣🤣🤣.

17.) 05 Jun 2019 20:34:23
Hughes had 6 years at United before he left. Scored a few goals too and was a decent player.

Depay was fairly crap for us unfortunately.

18.) 05 Jun 2019 20:50:36
There was a buy back clause and a sell on clause inserted when we sold him. I remember that being confirmed at the time and I also read it the other day also.

19.) 05 Jun 2019 21:37:57
I do singh.

20.) 05 Jun 2019 23:14:01
Lets hope so Ken.



27 May 2019 02:07:13
Having watched the legends match today it made me realise that the team of 99 had two qualities that our current team does not. Firstly huge desire to win every ball (personified by seeing three Bayern players try and fail miserably to get the ball off him) and secondly the guile and instinctive understanding of how and when to switch play with long crossfield passes.


1.) 27 May 2019 09:09:54
That's been the best performances at Old Trafford so far this season. Stam, Neville, Scholes and Beckham would walk into this current team.

2.) 27 May 2019 09:39:29
Salford, this is something Wolves have done all season to great affect (switching the ball) . They did it against us in the FA Cup and out lazy players had no interest in shuffling across to the other side of the pitch. It’s an old tactic that still works well for teams with good passes of the ball, which Wolves have lots of.

In the 90’s we used to have Becks and Giggs hugging the touchline with Scholes pinging it around. It’s great to watch. Becks wasn’t too bad with that right foot either.

3.) 27 May 2019 09:54:13
Mort alas you are right because very often our current team does little more than walk. Wazza wasn't it sad to see how far we have fallen. We get more enjoyment watching a team of players who with the greatest respect are passed it (delib misspelt past) than the current crop.

4.) 27 May 2019 10:13:24
Stam was a unit at the back. When he walked Janker and Ze Reberto out of the box by the hand it was hillarious.
Scholesy still can't tackle.
Dennis Irwin, still a great player.
David May, the striker I want to be.
Cant beleive I got to watch the great Kevin Pilkington either. What a day.

5.) 27 May 2019 10:56:57
I don't know how people watched that game, it was just sad and depressing to watch. solskjaer has scored same number of goals yesterday as sanchez did the entire season, staam is a better cb than anyone we have bar lindelof, beckham put in more accurate crosses in 1 game than ashley young did in an entire season. Also we scored 5 at OT for the first time since 2016 when we did it against midgetland.

6.) 27 May 2019 11:26:29

Because it was a great day and really enjoyable, we scored 5 because Bayern had a 58 year old centre back, none of them players would get into the current squad as they are too old and slow hence when they were moved on originally, but it was great fun to see them playing. Lighten up, football is meant to be a hobby, if you couldn’t enjoy that yesterday maybe football isn’t for you.

7.) 27 May 2019 11:56:42
CSM you get a bit over emotional at times. I joked that team are better than our current crop but let’s not pretend for a second there’s any truth in it. Our current team would run rings round them through fitness alone.

It’s ok to enjoy a fixture like yesterday for what it is. A celebration.

8.) 27 May 2019 12:34:11
GDS it was wonderful watching them, but you are not telling me that as a utd fan it isn't a depressing fact that a team of 40 and 50 year olds manages to play better than our current team.

Wazza i am sure jones and rojo are fitter than staam, but given their injury proneness i doubt they will last any longer on the pitch than stam would.

Good post Brendan but as the saying goes Rome wasn't built in a day and its just not feasible to buy I. One or two transfer windows almost a whole team and expect them to bed in o Sr just one season. We need patience and a clear direction which is doable and sustainable. In reality things were going downhill in Fergie last two years. RVPs arrival papered over the cracks which already existed. The very best run clubs will always buy new players to freshen up a squad even when they are winning titles and they biy quality. They are also ruthless about jettisoning non performing or slightly past it players. Our club has failed miserably these past seven years. We need leadership from the top which means we need a strong ruthless manager who will not kneel to the Board and owners of the club. Why we need is one who had the cojones to say "this is whaf I need. What you are going to do for me or I walk out"

Shappy I think you hit the nail on the head when you talked about how Belgium have great supply lines to Lukaku. We don't. Give him the service he needs and he will score loads. I agree too that he needs to lose bulk but his first touch is nowhere near as bad as some make out.

Wait til he signs for City and gets a proper coach like Pep then see how good he will be.

Jesse played ok. Took his offside goal very well and caused problems in the Dutch defence.
