Ancelotti is being touted as a possible Utd manager. What are peoples thoughts about him?


1.) 02 Mar 2022 23:39:31
He’s great.

2.) 03 Mar 2022 05:16:06
Good manager but seems unrealistic. That he’d leave Madrid. Feel like it’s just links to make it seem like we looked other than Poch.

3.) 03 Mar 2022 08:35:54
im still in shock he went everton, they had a top manager and didn't use him.

he could have with some investment and time made them a decent team.

4.) 03 Mar 2022 08:58:58
No thanks, for the job we need done he'd be completely the wrong man.

5.) 03 Mar 2022 10:16:31
Good manager, but I would put him in the same category as Zidane. Someone who is tactically flexible and is good at getting the best out of a team of talented ego's who may have lost a little drive or direction.

Not the kind of manager to perform a rebuild, develop young players, create a distinct style of play etc.

6.) 03 Mar 2022 13:08:42
agree shappy, he's a decent manager but he's a manager of 10-15 years ago

hopefully he's not one of the choices.

7.) 03 Mar 2022 16:53:30
He wasn't on the list of managers that ED002 provided us with.

8.) 04 Mar 2022 23:57:57
Shappy, Good manager, but I would put him in the same category as Zidane. Someone who is tactically flexible and is good at getting the best out of a team of talented ego's. Isn't that exactly what you need?



02 Dec 2021 22:36:29
So Carrick departs. suggests either he has a potential job offer or that the new manager wants a clean sweep.


1.) 03 Dec 2021 02:11:10
I think it’s possible he just wanted a break. He got a ton of stick for the last few months under Ole and probably didn’t see the fans accepting him. Or maybe he was in line for assistant after Phelan and now there’s no chance of that.

2.) 03 Dec 2021 06:41:33
We should applaud Carrick, he is not waiting around to be paid off, had the courage to go before pushed. Well done Michael. If only Phelan, McKenna and co had the same conviction.

I watched Carrick and the player was quality, his way of leaving quality.

3.) 03 Dec 2021 07:39:57
Agree Red Man. Did a great job at keeping us on track once Ole was sacked, and leaves with his had held high. Fine midfielder for us too in his day and think he will be in demand when he decides to return to the dugout for a decent championship club.

4.) 03 Dec 2021 08:27:42
15 years service to the club. He will be as disappointed as any of us with the last few years but stuck around to help the club in the last 3 games. Great player and classy guy.

5.) 03 Dec 2021 08:57:22
Agree Redman. Plus not wanting a long emotional goodbye shows the class of the guy.

6.) 03 Dec 2021 09:33:13
Class act in every respect and very underrated as a player by many. How we could do with him in the team today. Seems he genuinely just wanted a break and after 15 years service nobody can begrudge him.

7.) 03 Dec 2021 09:39:30
The guy deserves a flag or maybe even a statute ?

On a serious note I think it just makes sense that he walks away while his stock is at it's highest. As a caretaker he won in Spain against Villarreal, drew at Stamford bridge against top to the table Chelsea, and beat Arsenal at home.

I mean 10 days ago we'd have snatched their hand off if we were offered those results given how we had played so far this season.

Results wise I don't think he could have done any better.

Maybe a few other sides might look at that and think he's worth a gamble.

Whereas if he stayed until the end of the season and then Rangnick and the club decided he wasn't good enough and he was sacked, it'd make getting his next job much harder.

Or maybe he feels his friend and former boss was unfairly sacked and is simply walking away on principal.

Who knows, but he was a fantastic player for us, and he has no doubt tried his best as a coach. It's hard to tell how good he is as the whole set up just wasn't working. Maybe he's a better coach than many give him credit for, or maybe he isn't good enough for the highest level.

I do wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours and he will always be welcomed back at Old Trafford.

8.) 03 Dec 2021 10:13:27
How embarrassing it was to read so many continually slagging him off as a player. You know who you are. Good luck Michael. Thank you.

9.) 03 Dec 2021 10:48:42
i doubt he's got any jobs in line.

dont forget him and the others that were with ole are just as to blame for the poor season so far. why mkenna is still there and phelan i do not know.

10.) 03 Dec 2021 11:02:42

We literally have no idea what jobs the staff were doing or whether Ole was listening to them or delegating or just making all the big decisions himself. McKenna is highly rated and working with the right manager will hopefully so well at the club. I’m not sure phelan will last too much longer.

Carrick has done a good job in the last couple of weeks, it can’t have been easy and he’s managed to steady what was very much a sinking ship at Watford, so fair play. It gives Ralf something to work with straight away and a bit of confidence going into Sunday. He will then have a week on the training ground with the players, hopefully he plays kids against Young Boys and sees if any of them are ready, Fernandez, Amad, Hannibal, Mengi, Elanga perhaps, just to take a look at them and give the first team a week of coaching in his new system before the mad Christmas run.

11.) 03 Dec 2021 12:11:08
i have respect for Carrick for his handling of the last couple of weeks and his playing career especially.

Am just a little disappointed he didn't decide to learn from Rangnick for 6 months and then take his break.

It would have been completely different philosophy and training ideas compared to Jose and Ole and he could have benefited from that immensely.

On the other hand I can understand why he feels it is the right time to leave.
Probably a huge learning curve involved and thus even less time for his family and probably would still have had to endure the stick from the fans.

All the best, let's hope he does evolve into a more expansive style of play before he comes back to the club as manager.

12.) 03 Dec 2021 13:12:01
Jonny, I think that's a really great point. Many of the world's top managers have learned a lot from Rangnick. Carrick may have just passed up the learning opportunity of a life time.

13.) 03 Dec 2021 19:13:19
Classy player and even more of a classy man. He leaves with his held high to spend some quality time with his family. i wish him the best in whatever the future holds for him.

14.) 04 Dec 2021 09:32:18
Ralf wanted to keep him but sometimes you just need a break from the intensity of it all I guess. Who knows after a 6 month sabbatical the new manager may want to bring him back on board.
Personally I think if he does want to pursue a career in coaching it would do him no harm to search for a role abroad in Spain, Germany or Italy and learn away from the spotlight.

15.) 07 Dec 2021 05:36:51
Every post about MC is spot on but to be honest I think he also feels responsible for the slump and decided a clean break and fresh start for everyone was best.



22 Nov 2020 23:43:25
If there are any legs in the press stories about Juve wanting Pogba and Inter wanting to swap Fred with Ericsson I would be up for that. Then I would go all out to get Declan Rice to be the new Matic.


{Ed002's Note - (a) They might be interested at the right price. (b) Inter want Eriksen moved on as soon as possible, preferably in January. If Manchester United were interested it would be as a Bruno Fernandes replacement.}

1.) 23 Nov 2020 10:19:05
Last year I was hoping United would sign Eriksen as we need an attacking midfielder. However, Bruno is our best player by a mile and VDB (while not getting much game time so far) is a great replacement for him as well as others in our midfield.

I'd much rather see us sign a defensive midfielder who is an improvement on Fred and Matic. The issue is we have too many players already so adding to that would be a problem.

2.) 23 Nov 2020 10:27:36
What happened with Eriksen Ed? Seems to have lost his way?

{Ed002's Note - It has not worked out and he is not a natural fit in the side and has asked to leave.}

3.) 23 Nov 2020 11:24:25
I like Eriksson. But now with bruno they fill the same role essentially so no need to go for him now.
Although there could all be clubs in for bruno soon enough and he may well get tempted to leave so maybe not a futile link.

4.) 23 Nov 2020 11:31:24
Not to sound too cryptic Ed but do we need to be looking at Bruno Fernandes replacements?

{Ed002's Note - It is not a position Manchester United are looking to add to right now as far as I understand.}

5.) 23 Nov 2020 11:34:44
Ed002 that is probably the second or third time you have mentioned a player being a Bruno Fernandes replacement. Is something going on with Bruno behind the scenes with him may be leaving the club soon?

{Ed002's Note - People keep asking about AM players who would be first choice - the only way that would work is if BF were moving on.}

6.) 23 Nov 2020 12:00:09
Ah ok, understood. Thanks Ed.

7.) 23 Nov 2020 12:39:45
Grass isn't always greener Eric79.

8.) 23 Nov 2020 21:06:54
I’d Eriksen for Pogba.

9.) 24 Nov 2020 00:46:36
Thanks Ed 02 for your reply. Could not Bruno and Ericsson work together a bit like De Bruyne and Silva did for City?

{Ed002's Note - I think it unlikely.}

10.) 26 Nov 2020 11:26:56
He’s even slower than Matic. Finished as a decent player years ago.



13 May 2020 00:01:31
There are rumours that Angel Gomez migjt snub Utds offers and sign for Chelsea. I would be really upset to see such a talented young player leave. He needs a run in the team to prove himself. How can we afford to lose talent like his?


1.) 13 May 2020 00:20:29
Umm probably because he won't sign a contract.

We just signed bruno who everyone is rightly raving about, there are strong links with grealish.

Also for half of the season we had lingard and pereira being chosen ahead of him for every game.

I am not surprised if he wants out and i wish him all the best.

2.) 13 May 2020 04:05:58
All the best to him. Although I don't see him getting much game time at Chelsea either. They have twice the amount of midfielders than we do all around his age looking to break into the first team.

3.) 13 May 2020 08:07:56
The concerns amongst the training staff are about his ability to cope with the EPL physically. Now while superior ability can beat physicality, the player needs to be clever enough to know how to do so. While our coaching staff can see what Gomes is capable of against EPL players every day in training.

This season his competition for places was probably as weak as he will ever have while playing for a top side. An ageing Mata, an out of form Lingard and Andreas Pereira who isn't good enough.

Since the the club have signed Bruno Fernandes and are looking at players like Grealish who would further push Gomes down the peaking order.

He is a clearly talented lad, but he needs to play a season or two of "mens" football either in the championship or in a league such as the Dutch or Portuguese league to develop his understanding and ability to cope physically with a much more demanding style of football.

To that end maybe a move to a club like Chelsea who will invariably loan him out for a year or two might be a good move. Or he will sign a new deal with us and hopefully follow a similar path.

4.) 13 May 2020 09:34:16
Invariably loan him out? Sorry Shappy, but Lampard will give him a chance if he's good enough.

5.) 13 May 2020 09:56:48
RJ28P as would ole but simple fact of the matter is he’s shown nothing when given a chance to warrant more starts.

6.) 13 May 2020 11:00:04
Gomes is very talented, but if anyone has watched him in the u23s especially this season, he’s not warranted a promotion to the first team on those performances. If he goes to Chelsea, good luck to him.

Also you have to ask where he fits in the team? Better player than Andreas and lingard potentially but he’s not really shown much yet. Bruno is top quality so he doesn’t get in there either. I don’t think he’s in the same class as Greenwood either.

A talent, but not sure if he’s going to be as big of a loss as many say.

7.) 13 May 2020 11:52:30
RJ28P, Well that's my point, if he was putting in the performances at United in training then he would be given a chance in the first team.

At United he only had Lingard, Mata and Andreas Pereira to get past before we signed Bruno.

He can play either on the wing or in the No.10 position. Chelsea tend to play either 433 or 4231, so Gomes would be competing for a wide role in a 433 or in any of the three positions between the midfield and the striker in a 4231. So he will be competing with Mount, Hudson-Odoi, Barkley, Pedro and Pulisic. Plus any other players Chelsea sign this summer.

Chelsea have an extensive history of signing young players and loaning them out. Gomes needs games every week, and currently he isn't consistent enough to do that at the top end of the EPL. So he needs a loan wherever he plays next season.

8.) 13 May 2020 13:00:49
RJ Lampard will give him a chance at the expense of whom?

9.) 13 May 2020 14:26:56
Pedro, Willian and Barkley will all likely be gone next season. And with respect, the reason why he isn't playing is because he is running his contract down, like Sancho did at City.
I've watched Gomes a lot (being fortunate enough to have access to a lot of youth games) and he's a talent on par with Hudson-Odoi and Saka if given the consistent minutes.
That said, it seems like the relationship at Utd has soured and it is right for the player to move on.

10.) 13 May 2020 14:48:12
Your right red whisky that goal in pre season against spurs didn’t show any promise. Haha. how many opportunities did he get in the number 10 position with the rest of the 1st 11 also playing.

11.) 13 May 2020 16:32:52
RJ, for the sake of this discussion, let's assume you are right about the three you mentioned. You think Gomes will slot into their MF ahead of Kante, Mount, Pulisic, Loftus, Kovacic, Gilmour, Odoi, Jorgino or Ziyach?

12.) 13 May 2020 17:51:31
Sorry pogthedog he scored one goal in a pre season match. I presume you have unlimited access to the training sessions to say he deserves a chance? Like shappy said if you don’t show enough in training to usurp the likes of pereira and Lingard then there must be a reason why he’s not playing. Ole has been a huge advocate of playing the youth and giving chances. Chong got minutes whilst refusing to sign so I find the idea he’s not playing because of refusing to sign irrelevant.

13.) 13 May 2020 19:32:41
He can certainly play wide in rotation with Odoi, Pulisic and Ziyech. As for pure no. 10s, the only one we have is Ziyech, Mount is better when allowed to sit a little deeper.

14.) 14 May 2020 00:55:21
I like gomes but the lad has reportedly been offered 30k.
Football can be simple, greenwood produced gomes hasn't. 30k and what else should we offer him?

15.) 14 May 2020 00:56:06
My worry is that if teams like Chelsea and Barcelona want to take him what is it that they feel they can get out of him that Ole cannot.

I understand all the points raised by you guys. On one hand if he was performing at a very high level then you would think that he would get a chance to shine in the first team. He is obviously not pulling up any trees but he is young and it must be terribly frustrating if you feel that you do not have rhe managers full confidence and are not going to get a run of games to settle in and prove how good you are.

We are all very happy and surprised at how well an established international £60m player like Bruno has done in such a short time. Yet he has lots of experience and is older than Gomez. Why then do people ezpect a younger player to come into the first team and immediately perform to a high level? Also on the rare times Gomez got a game it was when the team were still struggling. I really do feel he should be given the chance to make it at Utd. I know he is not quite the same player as Grealish but I think he has more natural talent.

For me the way to go would be to give him a decent contract and send him on loan for a season. He would get the games he needs, toughen up physically, and he might appreciate how special it is to have the facilities of and play for Utd. Beckham was loaned out and it didn't hurt his prospects.

16.) 14 May 2020 07:50:19
Salford, the issue is that he clearly hasn't done enough in training to convince he should start ahead of anyone else.

Under other managers you could say that maybe they don't give youth a chance. But Ole has given more than given youth a chance. People also forget that Gomes was given three starts in the Europa League, often against weaker opposition than we play most weeks in the EPL. How did Gomes do in those games? Occasional glimpses of talent, but drifted in and out of the game far too much.

If he can't do it against the likes of Astana then he will struggle against the Everton's, Spurs, Burnley's and Sheffield United's of the EPL.

He is a hugely talented player, but he isn't ready to play at the level we play at. He needs a loan or two in order to develop.

Unfortunately his contact is about to run out and he doesn't want to sign a new deal. Maybe making his debut at 16 has made him inpatient, maybe he has been told he will get more elsewhere.

Who knows. His size will hold him back in the EPL until he learns how to mitigate his lack of physicality. In youth football if you're quick you can avoid physical battles to an extent, but men's football is played at a faster pace, and quick feet alone will not get you out of trouble. You need to read the game well and position yourself in the right areas and be two steps ahead of the opposition.

It's not a case of him just bulking up, although he does look like he could be tackled by a stiff breeze. He needs to learn how to play in the men's game. He is best off doing that on loan as he will need to play 20-30 games a season to start to learn that. He can't get that here with him playing as he has done. So a loan is the solution.

If he signs for Chelsea he will almost certainly leave on loan at some point. As they are in the same boat as us.
If he signs for Barcelona I don't see him getting a huge amount of game time. They don't tend to play with a No.10 so he would be competing for one of the wide forward roles, against Messi, Dembele, Griezmann, Fati and Braithwaite, plus whoever else the club sign this summer. With Neymar being a key target.

He needs a season in the Championship, or to move to a more technical league in Europe on loan. Portugal, the Netherlands, Belgium could all be good options.

I hope he makes it, whether that's with us or somewhere else. But it's a long road yet, and he needs to realise that if he is going to make the most of his potential.

17.) 14 May 2020 10:57:20
Sadly for me, Greenwood and Williams aside this is a very underwhelming crop of youngsters, referring to those of the age where they would expect to be getting chances in the first team and making an impression. I've seen Chong the most and he has shown nothing but a haircut I'm afraid. I don't buy the fact that Gomes' size is a problem either but neither has he done enough to suggest that he is any better than the thousands of other kids clubs of this magnitude scout every season. If the tens of thousands he wants every week aren't sufficient let him go, I'm sure we'll resign him for £50m in a few years!

18.) 14 May 2020 15:32:34
Spenno, most young players don't really start to have a regular impact until they are 21/ 22 years old after a season or two as squad players.

In that respect the likes of Rashford and McTominay are starting to reach that level of impact. While Henderson could when he returns from his loan, as could Tuanzebe if he can stay injury free.

However, the likes of Greenwood and Williams are ahead of where they would normally expect for players of their ages. While the likes of Laird, Mengi, Garner, Levitt, Chong and Gomes still have huge potential, but are probably a year or two away from making a serious impact in the first team beyond a few games.

That's 12 young players in total who have a chance to make a telling impact in our first team within the next few years. That's insane and at levels not really seen outside of Ajax or Barcelona.

While we have also signed AWB and Shaw who were two of the best young players in the league when we signed them. Dan James from the Championship. While we are chasing players such as Rice, Rodon, Sancho, Bellingham, Grealish etc some of the best young British talent around.

I would say we have two great groups of young players in our squad. The older group of players between the ages of 21-24 including; Henderson, Tuanzebe, AWB, Shaw, McTominay, Rashford, James and Martial.

With a younger group between 17-20 including; Larid, Williams, Dalot, Mengi, Garner, Levitt, Mejbri, Gomes, Chong and Greenwood.

Giving us 18 EIGHTEEN! players at our club who have a good chance of making it as at least good squad players, with some of them having genuine world class potential.

Contrast Doku for City who is direct has pace goes for the jugular but then in the very last minute is back defending his own goal line to Utds Sancho and Anthony. And Doku cost a fraction of their prices. On a nutshell rhas why City are so far ahead.


1.) 19 Sep 2023 22:35:44
With city its the people they have in charge. They got the right people in a year before pep took over. With the transfers, they get it right 9/10 and never pay stupid money. I'm sure there are some shady deals going on over there, but they know what they are doing.

Us on the otherside seem to have no idea except splashing cash. We need to get the brighton guys in. They find the rough diamonds and polish them up.

Hopefully, we get new owners in, and they get proper people to run the club.

2.) 20 Sep 2023 00:57:15
115 of them.

3.) 20 Sep 2023 03:14:12
Liverpool fan here but I just wanted to wade in on the topic of City getting 9/ 10 transfers right. Personally, I don't think this is the case. The only reason why it seems so is because they are so rich that they can easily write-off wrong transfers and go out into the market and get a new player.

Just look at how many defenders they bought to replace Kompany before they finally landed on Dias. Or how they bout Jesus to replace Aguero but ended up still playing the Aguero because of how poor Jesus was. Or how they bought multiple keepers to replace Hart before getting Ederson. There are plenty of other examples too if you look through their transfer history.

Don't get it wrong, they have splashed the cash but unlike other clubs, they are not affected by the mistakes they make in the market.

4.) 20 Sep 2023 06:20:35
Jesus was not poor.
I remember a few fair times he came off the bench and scored.

{Ed001's Note - oh he was poor. So poor Pep didn't even play him as a striker after giving up on him there because he didn't score enough. And now he has gone to Arsenal and still failing to score enough.}

5.) 20 Sep 2023 10:25:21
Duku cost 60 mill I believe so not cheap.

City have the luxury of bringing in players into a great squad and allowing them time to settle in and don't have the media spotlight or toxic fan base that writes players off after a handful of games. They get some wrong but get many right.

They are in such a good place that no individual signing is looked at as a savior. if it turns out to be a mistakes they move them on eventually without missing a beat.

6.) 20 Sep 2023 11:28:03
Doku is still a raw talent but he has physical qualities which can not be taught which is why city have picked him out. Pep will back himself to coach Doku and refine his game technically.

Contrast that with Antony and Sancho who are good technically but don't have the physical qualities for the league which you can not really teach in my opinion. I don't recall Antony or Sancho beating their full back 1 vs 1 as much as Doku has and I've only seen him play 2 games lol.

7.) 20 Sep 2023 12:12:34
You mention Antony, who also scored on his debut, and also put a massive shift in defensively. What point are you trying to make?

Let’s give Doku a full season to see how he turns out. I’m sure he’ll be fine under Pep, but this seems like bashing our players for the sake of it.

8.) 20 Sep 2023 13:12:34
I made the point, Antony can not physically hack this league, confirmed by the point i have never seen him beat his full back 1 vs 1 because he doesn't have the explosive pace to do it.

9.) 20 Sep 2023 14:47:28
The same city who got it spot on with Gvardiol Kovacic, Rodri, KDB and Silva Dracred lol? You are talking about players that were signed ten years ago. Kompany and Aguero retired ten years ago.
They don't make many mistakes these days and if i am not wrong they are one of the highest selling club across the top 6 clubs.

10.) 20 Sep 2023 15:38:30
LFIP, are you Harry from the Liverpool page? because the misinformation you spouted is very reminiscent of his. And your love-in with Kovacic, who has done absolutely nothing this season with City, is like his as well.

Kompany left City in 2019, Aguero in 2021. A simple Google search would have given you that answer. And last I checked, 2019 and 2021 aren't 10 years ago. They make plenty of mistakes in transfers but it's easy for them to cover up since they have the money to just go out and buy a new replacement player each window.

11.) 20 Sep 2023 15:44:21
DSG my comment was not aimed at you but the OP.

It appears to be putting Doku’s debut on a pedestal while bashing Anthony, but Anthony had an almost identical debut.



12 Sep 2023 21:37:47
So Scott allegedly was on the field for Scotland tonight he was invisible a consequence of England playing well and his not enough game time? At least if he comes on for us he had a full game to get more match fit.


1.) 12 Sep 2023 22:32:03
To be fair he was well off the pace tonight. Just didn't get going. Hardly surprising when his club career is uncertain.

2.) 12 Sep 2023 22:52:15
Scots were so bad Maguire had to score for them ?.



12 Sep 2023 21:31:15
How good was Bellingham tonight. Head and shoulders above everyone. Exactly the type of driving forwards from midfield player with skill that we need.


1.) 12 Sep 2023 22:33:35
Superb player. Generational talent.

2.) 13 Sep 2023 10:51:14
Great player and still a teenager. Got a little bite to him as well which I like.



08 Aug 2023 01:33:21
No idea if true but talksport say Maguire is holding out for a champions league club
Can't see any such team in the UK wanting him. Ditto Germany France and Spain. France and Italy moggt have suitors but doubt it so where does that leave him and Utd?


1.) 08 Aug 2023 03:45:21
Ideas above his current ability. No self respecting CL club would come anywhere near him given his recent form. And he is only going to get worse at 30.

Where it leaves him is on the bench and losing his England place.

2.) 08 Aug 2023 07:33:15
Perhaps telling him he won't be named in the 25 man squad this season, might make him think different.

3.) 08 Aug 2023 11:24:45
If he's willing to reduce his wage demands I'm sure an Italian team might look at him but I don't suspect he will.

I wouldn't knock the lad for wanting to play at the highest level but he's never been great at self assessments. At the end of the Ole/ Ralf season he did an interview basically trying to absolve himself of any sins "I must be playing well as I'm always picked for United and England".

I would assume Ten Hag has told him he's probably 5th choice behind Varane, Martinez, Lindelof and Shaw. Unless it's a game of chicken to see if we'll pay some of his wages at his new club, I would assume West Ham are probably his best bet at the minute.

How dare he not want to join a clubb that flirted with relegation last year. Seriously, why should he go to West Ham?
Igetheneeds toleave but that doesn't mean he has to go wherever the club wants him to.

He doesn't have to go anywhere AJH. But he's 30 years old, there's only West Ham showing interest and he's 5th choice here.

He's basically going to see the guidance councillor hoping NASA want him when he's failing all his exams.

Maybe some club will panic buy him near the end of the window but if he doesn't play for us, his England career is in doubt.

Watching the community shilwd game. Both sides cancelling each other out. Arsenal need a Kane type of centre forward to hold the ball up. Am so glad we signed Hoikkumd to do that for us. Also Jaoi Cancelo is available and why don't we bid for him.

I really really don't get the short term lack of patience with ETH. He has been fighting fires since he arrived and with one hand tied behind his back because of the inadequacy of those in charge of the club.

He has inherited a poor squad. Got rid of dead wood where he could and generally his signings have been good (Anthony is the only one who so far has flopped in my opinion)

He has not had a settled defence and that is the bedrock of any successful team.

Give him time at least another two years if he is backed properly and then judge.

I can't believe people want ETH out already. He is clearly a talented coach. Has not has a settled defence since he started. Suffered significant squad injuries. Unable to get rid of players he clearly does not want due to previous management errors and hamstrung by FFP rules.

Give the guy time to rebuild the squad to how he wants and also have a full squad to pick from.

We need another striker. Can really only rely on Rash as Hoijlund is unproven and if one of those two is out for a while we have no one to come in.

Shappy I agree that a defensive midfielder should be the priority but if we can get Kudus as well go for it. Mount and Bruno don't really play in the same position and Ericsson doesn't have the legs any more. Plus Kudus can play in several positions.

I agree that we need a defensive midfielder more to ease the burden on Casemeiro but would be happy if we got Kudus as well. Bruno plays too much and often has a spell where his energy levels and creativity suffer.

Spot-on Manc man and preferably decent ones at that.

I think the teams problem and Rashfords is that we don't have a decent midfield who can shield the defence and also support the forwards quickly. As a consequence when (if) he gets the ball he feels the pressure to produce something spectacular as he knows goals from and support from midfield is limited at best.

The only thing I would query is why haven't Utd signed a really domineering central midfielder who can boss a game. That should have been out priority.

Am with Bumi. Some things are more important than football despite Bill Shanklys saying otherwise.

Ratcliffe knows to get max value out of Utd they need top sponsorship and income from winning trophies. Yes he will want to make money but if the team keeps losing he knows he will lose out too. He also is allegedly a Utd supporter so should have a better idea than the Glazers about what the club needs.
