City have withdrawn their offer. Chelsea intersted.

Cant follow the figures though although I doubt any journo knows. The Indy saying Arsenal wanted Martial PLUS cash? and now its 30 million PLUS Miki? neither of those deals look good to me.


2.) 15 Jan 2018 22:54:54
I can't see Chelsea splashing the cash when there is an unknown with the manager. Probably going public to satisfy fans that they tried.


3.) 16 Jan 2018 02:04:16
Replacement for Hazard is my guess. Hopefully just BS, but if they are in the mix it will be a problem for us I think - these foreigners seem to love London, I doubt they spend much time partying, learning the history and shops you can find anywhere - it's just convenience and the 'image'.

I genuinely don't see the draw in London for a professional footballer over other major cities in the UK.

Di Marzio reporting that we have reached an agreement with Sanchez and his agents.

Than surely we have. that guy is special at news.


2.) 14 Jan 2018 14:13:10
That guy is specially wrong everytime he opens his mouth.

Incredible.


3.) 14 Jan 2018 20:29:19
Yeah sure he is mikon. What planet you living on. Has always been incredibly accurate. Most have some decent sources.


4.) 15 Jan 2018 10:31:48
Incredibly accurate? that's a stretch, sure he is better than some but he is wrong about transfers all the time!

This goes out to Ed002 if he is available. I read somewhere, I think it was the Chelsea page, that United could be in for Fabregas. could you possibly shed some light on it please? Given that we see a Magic discussion down the page, is it Matic or Fabregas that we are interested in, if either.

Shan UNITED boy

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United could potentially be push for Matic as the interest from elsewhere has gone. Fabregas is keen to stay.}


1.) 13 Jun 2017 21:25:38
Sorry Ed, can I clarify, the interest United had elsewhere has gone or interest in Matic from elsewhere has gone?

{Ed002's Note - The other club that was interested in Matic are no longer keen.}


2.) 13 Jun 2017 23:41:11
Cheers for the reply, Ed!


3.) 14 Jun 2017 05:26:33
Thanks Ed. If Fabregas is staying, why are Chelsea considering Verrati? They can't have two similar sorts playing in the same game.

{Ed002's Note - You appear to be on the wrong page.}


4.) 14 Jun 2017 05:38:51
@Ed002

Wasn't the other club that was interested in Matic? If so, have they found someone else they are going for or have they backed out due to a high asking price?

{Ed002's Note - I am sorry - this is the MU page.}

Gomes took c80% of the corners for us yesterday and forget beating the first man, he couldn't get the ball of the ground most times. If Ashley Young had taken such corners, he would have been castrated here. Just saying.

Rashford would make a good living in anything that doesn't involve putting something in the back of the net. I am sure he would be a great goalkeeper because he doesn't let the ball go into the net.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 20 Sep 2019 15:06:28
I don’t think anyone here wants to castrate Young.


2.) 20 Sep 2019 15:20:47
Losing a little faith in Rashford, can't explain but it isn't happening and he has stalled a lot. The young lads played okay last nite with gomes movement and Tuanzebes speed/ power only being outshone by greenwoods composed finish. Rojo put a shift in and matic was more mobile than all of last season but the opposition was not the greatest. Still 3 points and some positives to move on with.


3.) 20 Sep 2019 17:40:24
I seem to remember Tuanzebe getting on the end of a couple of those Gomes corners.


4.) 20 Sep 2019 18:04:00
But Shan mate, you've always been a huge Rashford fan.


5.) 21 Sep 2019 04:57:52
True Tony. that's the reason i didn't call for him being shown the door. I just gave a choice of another position for him in the team. So when de gea leaves, we still have rashford to stop all the goals.


6.) 21 Sep 2019 06:24:05
You know m a fan, but I’m finding him disappointing right now. His profligacy was forgiven by moments of brilliance but they seem to have dried up. I think he has huge talent but it isn’t happening at the moment. I said on another post to play him wide and see how Greenwood does in the middle. Scoring goals is a problem and Greenwood seems to know how to do it. Not every game obviously but worth a try.

I still think Rashford will come good, I think it’s in his head right now. He needs to be instinctive and just get on with it, stop shooting from 40 yards out or stand looking at a defender thinking about how to go past him. Just go past him!


7.) 21 Sep 2019 08:22:32
I like the way Rashford is given "time" to deliver, you know. To "find himself" again. To let his "talent" shine through etc. Man has been playing in the Premier League for four seasons but hasn't progressed yet he is being gassed up as the next Ronaldo de Lima.

If Pogba or Lukaku had missed those chances and several more like Rashford did this and previous seasons, the guillotine would have been sharpened.

Just like Pogba's penalty miss that birthed an uproar and a week later, you could hear the crickets.


Like I've said countless times, Rashford is not a solution to our striking conundrum.

Take it or leave it, Martial is head and shoulders ahead of our strikers and second place doesn't even go to Rashford - Mason Greenwood in case you're wondering.


8.) 21 Sep 2019 11:02:40
Martial is our best Cf that said rash is still getting chances so the goals will come .
When he stops getting chances that is the time to worry.


9.) 21 Sep 2019 11:13:39
Rashford needs to accept the player he is, and work on his all round game.

He isn’t a central striker, but can develop into a modern left wing forward. The issue at the moment is that the team is overstocked in this type of player. James plays his best on the left, and I’m not convinced that Martial offers enough centrally either - he has zero aerial threat, and struggles to occupy central defenders.

Greenwood will be a good striker, but I’m not comfortable with sticking a child into the thick of it and expecting them to lead our attack. Despite Lukaku’s limitations, he was the best striker at the club, and would have been key in games like Thursday when weaker teams sit back to nullify our pace.

The reality is that Ole listened to Rashford’s preference to play centrally, rather than recognising that this isn’t where his talents are. A new striker should be a priority in January.


10.) 21 Sep 2019 11:57:11
Yaz, maybe because he’s so young? He’s been playing for 4 seasons yet he’s still only 21. Or maybe because he has shown some great flashes. We all know he’s having a dry spell but he’s essentially still a kid.


11.) 21 Sep 2019 12:20:32
When Ole first came in Rashford was absolutely slamming them in. His goal rate in Ole's first 10 or so games was outrageous. So you can't blame Ole for seeing something in rashford that you can't. And I'm sorry but this narrative that Lukaku was better than our current strikers is rubbish. Lukaku had dreadful touch and offered little to nothing in the air. Martial gives CB's far more of a problem as he can actually hold the ball up. How many strikers in the world have Martial's pace, touch, strength and composure? I think he's the embodiment of what we're looking for in a striker and Man Utd player. For me Rashford isn't the solution upfront, as he lacks composure, but he still has the ability to score and is a nightmare for teams on the counter. I agree with AJH that it's in his head. When he has to think he fluffs it, but when he just gets on with it he usually does well. Think we should take a look at their tally's at the end of the season. If you wikipedia the great god Lukaku you'll realise he went on a 12 game premier league goal drought under mourinho last season, and only scored 12 in total in the Prem. Martial and Rashford both got 10 a piece. Pretty sure there isn't the gulf in class between Rom and the rest that people might like to think.


12.) 21 Sep 2019 13:37:51
People saying rash isn't this or that? The lad is 21, plenty of time to develop.
Not unheard of but very few are the finished article at that age .
Far more continue to improve and develop.


13.) 21 Sep 2019 16:43:34
Slunky. His goal return was outragous my ass. How many goals did he Evie in those 11 games? Complete nonsense and hyberbole.
Tell us what was outragous about it?


14.) 21 Sep 2019 16:47:58
Jred i agree he is young and will improve somewhat.
I think the people that are responding that he isn't this or that are doing so in relation to the complete hyberbole calling him a 100m player and one of the great prospects of the game.
He is neither great nor rubbish. He is starting his career and has done quite well to date for a young lad. He is not having a great run of form at the moment but these peaks and troughs happen at this stage in his development.


15.) 21 Sep 2019 17:36:28
Ken as a 21 year old striker he is right up there he is a very good prospect .
If you read the comments above not a single person has referred to him as a 100m player
A few have said he won't score goals or isn't a Cf . At 21 I think that's far to early an assumption.


16.) 21 Sep 2019 18:55:22
Unfortunately Rash will be another Lingard. A player who will be always close to start to play close to his abilities.


17.) 21 Sep 2019 19:03:06
Jred thank you for your response. Let me clarify. In your rush to have a go with me even when i'm agreeing with you you have misinterpret the post.
Those having a go to slam him are doing so and judging him against the hyberbole of the summer when his name being linked at the 100m mark amid alleged Barcelona interest.
Some on here raved about him for 18 months some feel he will be a top top player and those there are those that feel the exact opposite.
If you judge him against those types of standards then he is falling well short.
He has not been spectacular he is only 21 and will improve. What heights he is capable of reaching is debatable the next 2 or 3 years should show us more.
He at the moment is neither great nor is he rubbish which appear to be the 2 popular opinions. The truth is as usual is somewhere in the middle he is at the moment pretty average. He has time to be great. let's see what happens. The ssme can be said of martial. Neither are living up to their potential just yet.


18.) 21 Sep 2019 19:48:50
Ken mate, out of Ole's first 10 Premier league games (As per my post which you described as hyperbole), Rashford played 9 of the games as he was on the bench for the 10th match. He scored 6 goals and got 2 assists. His longest streak him scoring 4 matches consecutively. That's 8 direct goal involements in 9 games. Is that enough hyperbole for you?


19.) 21 Sep 2019 23:31:38
Slunky 6 goals in 10 games is about 2o a season if you uphold that average. That's not outragous by any stretch of the imagination. While it would be very good. It would be great if he could uphold that average sadly he hasn't. He was carrying a knock late in the season. Inconsistency it happens with youngsters.


20.) 22 Sep 2019 07:56:20
Ken your just twisting things to justify a united player getting flagged off. The comments are in reply to the last game and rash missing a couple of chances.
If he scores the other night there are no posts like this .


21.) 22 Sep 2019 09:32:16
Why would i be doing that while defending the player and i'm of the opposite view which is clear. you really are a piece of work jred.


 

 

22 Apr 2019 15:08:37
Do we give away the status of a legend too lightly at United? Seeing Ole branded as a legend of the club. Basis what might i ask? That one night in Barcelona? 100 odd goals for the club and we brand a player a club legend too easily. Soon enough people will start calling Martial and Rashford legends, they are half way there already? Is there a criteria that defines a legend? Rooney for me would be a legend, Giggs, Scholes, Best, Cantona, SAF, Charlton among others. Solskjaer for me would not come into the category.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 22 Apr 2019 15:31:29
If you play for the club for over 10 years, score as many goals and as many important goals as he has then I think he gets the right to be called a legend.

{Ed0333's Note - of course he’s a legend. Only an idiot would say he isn’t. He claimed legendary status that night against Munich.


2.) 22 Apr 2019 15:58:30
Still don't see the criteria Shappy. Valencia has played 8 years. Macheda scored a brilliant goal and an important one. Chicharito scored many such goals. Is Sheringham a legend? He scored the first one against Munich. Is Carrick a legend on his tenure? I mean no disrespect to Ole, he was a great servent of the club but not a legend in my eyes. Ole's Legendary status is a romantic/ sentimental notion based om that night in Barcelona.


3.) 22 Apr 2019 16:37:51
Think you've been out in the sun too long Shan it looks like you have sun stroke.


4.) 22 Apr 2019 16:25:07
A lot of legends are based on sentiment and also likability. For me Pirlo was never as good as his ‘legendary’ status perceives but he’s a cool, likeable guy and therefore will be remembered in very high regard.
You’ve also got to remember that Ole was a great servant to the club for being the guy who played second fiddle for his whole United career but when called upon did a fantastic job, and some! The four goals against Forest from the bench is an iconic moment for me. Add that with his professionalism and that, for me, makes him a bit of a legend.


5.) 22 Apr 2019 16:32:48
Interesting question. I hope you don’t me asking Shan but how old are you or more pertinently how old were you in ‘99?

Ole often sat on the bench, never complained. He was offered a way to Spurs but he decided to stay and fight. Post Bachman it looked like he as going to be first choice but then got injured. It’s not just st tha goal, it’s the 4 he scored in 20 minutes away at a forest, it’s the countless times he came on rescue us but it’s also his style, his approach, and his respect for our club. Legend all day long for me.


6.) 22 Apr 2019 16:35:34
People forget how good ole was. He missed nearly 3 years due to injuries. He scored numerous big goals in the club’s history, not just that goal in Barcelona. Top player and a hero to many. Deserving of legend status.


7.) 22 Apr 2019 16:51:23
I think that moment coupled with his service and attitude all contribute to his status as club legend.
When people talk about united quality. that's exactly what ole was.
Team before self at all times.
Try to be as good as you can be at all times.
Respect the club the manager and the fans at all times.
Realise how lucky you are and to work hard every day to maintain that status.
Ability to deliver in key moments.
Keep a low profile off the pitch.
Have a winning mentality.
Make mistakes but bounce back stronger.
Thats united quality that's what its all about.
Ole had them all as a player and gave us possibly our finest moment on our history. that's why he is a legend.
He can't see those qualities in too many of his squad. Nobody can.
He has a big job ahead of him.
Extremely light on experience he needs to learn on the job and learn quickly.
Can he do it? Who knows, but the odds are stacked against him. I would say a man coming into this job with as little experience as ole has a less than 5% chance of success.
Whatever the strategy is and at the moment it remains totally unclear' we will know a lot more about our chances next season when the transfer window shuts.


8.) 22 Apr 2019 17:14:34
Legend but not a great. Greats, Best, Charlton, Law, Edwards, Ronaldo, Rooney, Keane, Scholes, Giggs, Ferdinand, Vidic and maybe others, they were renowned as the best and great players. Ole wasn’t a great, but he knew how to score a goal and scored one of the most important goals in our history, therefore a legend.

The legend status makes it harder to speak honestly about his suitability for the managers role and that will be an ongoing problem.


9.) 22 Apr 2019 17:21:53
Jesus what an awful post.

None of the current side will be legends until they sort themselves out. They probably worry about there earnings than being a club legend.


10.) 22 Apr 2019 17:21:59
AJH was going to say the same thing!

Aged 6 in 99 but I grew up adoring Ole to the point I was full on teary eyed when he announce his retirement. Oles also only ever played for the badge (The time he got a red card for stopping another team getting us on the counter being the last man) baby faced assassin for a reason. I'd say you would've had to have grown up around them times to understand why OGS is and will always be a club legend. Ahead of RVN and RVN scored hell of goals for us. Imo RVN doesn't even come close to the legendary status of our Solskjaer. #ThatNightInMunich #AndSolskjaerHasWonIt.


11.) 22 Apr 2019 19:08:09
Shan,

Cantona for United: 70 goals in 156 appearances, 4 Premier League titles, 2 FA Cups, 0 Champion's League

Solsksjaer for United: 126 goals in 366 games, 6 Premier League titles, 2 FA Cups, 1 Champion's League (scoring the winning goal in injury time)

If Cantona is a legend (and he is, as you admit) then so is Ole.

2OLEGEND.


12.) 22 Apr 2019 19:34:10
The guy scored the winning goal in the final of club footballs biggest prize. Is anything more legendary?


13.) 22 Apr 2019 19:46:49
Great post Ken and well said RWWD.


14.) 22 Apr 2019 21:06:06
Shan,

Bit of homework for you, go and watch all of Ole’s goals for united, I think they often show them on MUTV so should be out there to watch, then come back and apologise for even asking the question.


15.) 22 Apr 2019 22:13:16
GDS

He only needs to watch one goal.


16.) 22 Apr 2019 16:57:16
Shan, read shappys criteria again. none of the players you mentioned fit that criteria whatsoever.

As ed0333 says, only an idiot thinks OGS isn't a legend.


17.) 23 Apr 2019 05:09:41
Apologise my butt GDS2.

Tony, i was 12 at the time but that moment still gives. me the jitters every time i watch it, although the rest of the game wasnt exciting.

Interesting and good arguments put forth by almost everyone, except for GDS2 who thinks of himself as the moral police on here, and i agree to most of you guys. I repeat myself that i mean no disrespect to Ole but for me a legend is a term that should be used for stalwarts, someone larger than life in the history of the club. I agree Ole was there at the right place at the right time in 99 and scored a few more goals as a sub but for me that isn't enough to be called a legend of the club. Yes his name is etched in the history books and he was a United star at the time but still not a legend.

Cantona babysat the class of 1992 and brought out the man in them. Even SAF dare not point a finger at him as he carried the team. Even his kungfu is legendary. Solskjaer was 4th striker in the team most times and was in a team that had Keane, Scholes, Giggs, Beckham, RVN in their prime so it wasnt a one man show with him.

Ken all those qualities define a good footballer not a legend.

Hey but i am not arguing with anyone here. Just put up a question because i think we use the term legend way too casually.


18.) 23 Apr 2019 06:53:01
Ole breathes Manchester United.
He epitomizes how a player associated to Manchester United should conduct himself.
Passion, desire and hunger to fight for the shirt.
Only a plastic fan will think Ole isn't a legend.


19.) 23 Apr 2019 06:59:18
Would you class David Beckham a legend shan?


20.) 23 Apr 2019 07:54:18
Yes angelred, Beckham is a legend in the world of football, not Man Utd legend though. His stature in the world and his activities for UNICEF sports development programme accord him that status. The guy even has a movie named after him, Bend it like Beckham. Must be something special in that right foot.


 

 

19 Jan 2019 16:38:37
Underwhelming today. 2nd gear performance today mostly. its 77 min in and can't be sure if we are going to win today.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 19 Jan 2019 17:24:29
I'll take underwhelming against a Brighton side who have beaten us the previous 2 games.

7 from 7. Well done boys.


2.) 19 Jan 2019 18:33:55
I was never really worried, they didn’t really have any chances in the last 10 minutes to make you think they might win. We were really good at times, Rashford’s goal was fantastic and he is in the form of his life, no mention of it though Shan?


3.) 19 Jan 2019 18:35:02
Convinient.


4.) 19 Jan 2019 19:16:03
We played well in the first half and withiut ever really causing us much concern brighton were the better team in the 2nd half.
Our midfield players matic pogba and herrera are playing nearly every min of every game and have looked tired in the last 20 mins of our last 3 league games.
We need fred to start offering a bit more other than that there is only fellaini to look forward to when he gets fit again when the window closes. We really are paper thin in the squad in midfield playing 3 in there.
Ole will have to get creative in rotating our defenders and midfielders as he is woefully short on quality behind his 1st choice.
Dalot showed again today that he is on the right track and improving all the time.
Rotating our front 3 appears easier on paper with rom sanchez and mata as second choices to jessie martial and rash.
7 out of 7. Is more than most even hoped for. Probably 3 points off top 4. Lots to be positive about. We have a monster month ahead of us in feb and the key for me is keeping our midfield and lindelof fresh. Its time for the likes of fred to step up and start making a positive contribution.


5.) 19 Jan 2019 19:25:14
Their goal (completely against the run of play) threw us and made it a nervy end. We could have been 3/ 4 up at the break and had chances second half. Not sure what was underwhelming?
Lindelof had another good game, rashfords goal was stunning.


6.) 19 Jan 2019 19:37:09
Caolan,

It’s a shame Rashford is leaving in the summer because he isn’t good enough 🤣 what’s convenient Shan?


7.) 19 Jan 2019 20:22:48
Shan still thinks rashford is rubbish.


8.) 20 Jan 2019 03:47:16
Yes lads Rashford's goal was brilliant yesterday and there were a few Rooneysque passes from him but did you think he fizzled in and out of the game? Its my opinion and none of you will be changing that unless i see what i want to from him. Consistency in front of goal. But having said that he has been excellent these last few games.

I don't have words for you guys because you are being pigeons by closing your eyes. The performance yesterday was so slow and lethargic. It was a performance similar to dianosaur's, the difference being that under him these world beaters didn't play and gave up and might have ended up drawing.

The club has given in to the player power and is no longer unique and different than any other club in the world. The United Way is done. Wonder what happened to "My way or the highway. " what could have been if the club had backed Beckham, Stam, van Nistelrooy instead of the manager of the time.


9.) 20 Jan 2019 04:45:03
Hasn't he scored 4 in 4 in pl now with 6 goals and 3 assists in last 10 games overall, most will call that consistency.


10.) 20 Jan 2019 05:43:58
Yes CSM, most will. I am not the crowd. Obviously there must be something about him that every manager has put him in the team, he just needs to do it in the game regularly. But as i said, he has been brilliant these past few games and i really hope he continues in this vain of form for long. That will be good for the lad and the club. I will be more than happy to put my hand up and say i was wrong about Rashford. I reserve my judgement. I hope that is fine buddy.


11.) 20 Jan 2019 07:23:32
I don't really mind shan just found the stats interesting given you wanted consistency from him, it's an opinion and rashford isn't a star player yet so everyone is allowed their's.


12.) 20 Jan 2019 09:15:16
One of the commentary team summed it up for me yesterday by saying that we won't need to buy a star striker for the next decade he's ours and I love him the kids going to be a superstar.


13.) 20 Jan 2019 13:12:18
He’s just turned 21. You can’t expect him to be consistent week in weekout yet as he’s still learning. He’s played some many roles, and hasn’t led the line in as many games for us since his debut season. Have some faith in him.


 

 

14 Jan 2019 13:29:14
It was a brilliant RESULT yesterday. We beat Spurs at Wembley but please don't let the result shroud the performance. Yesterday was a typical Jose performance where one moment of magic won us the game. Any other goal keeper than David De Gea and we lose that game by a fair few. I am ecstatic by the result, yes, but the performance left a lot to improve on.

I am sorry and many of you may disagree to this but I still feel that this is a temporary dawn and the reason Ole is being called god is because he is a legend of Old Trafford. This was the same performance when we beat Arsenal last year at the Emirates and Jose was slaughtered. Stamford Bridge earlier this year and Jose was hanged. I am not here to support Jose, not at all, but why not call it fair. Yesterday, we were lucky to win it. It wasn't a very good performance, let alone a performance that gets you the hot seat at OT. My heartbeat was racing and reaching and crossing 100 by the time final whistle was blown and more than being happy, I was relieved that it was over.

So, my point is that let it cool down. I am sure if the results continue this way and the performances follow, the board will pay heed and may be even contact Molde to hire Ole permanently. But as of now, he is a temp and will remain that way till the end of the season.

Let the bashing begin :P.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 14 Jan 2019 14:14:56
I thought the Stamford bridge performance was very good and actually can't remember many negatives thrown towards Jose. When we beat big teams he got credit because it was due.

Yes of course we must remain calm and 'real' but OGS can only beat what's in front of him and 6 from 6 is an incredible start.

Shan I understand your caution, we don't want to get too carried away. However this was a big game for both teams, for us a must win to keep top 4 in sight and spurs had to win if they were to keep their title aspirations alive. I think Ole himself said it post match that we found it difficult to adjust to their change in tactics. DdG was a massive difference, that said Lloris did pull off some good saves as well especially against Pogba. Utd could have and maybe should have; at least doubled the lead in the 1st half. So as it stands it is 6 out of 6. Be it false hope or not, I enjoy our games again!

Nobody's giving him the job already and one big away win doesn't prove that he's a tactical genius, but you can't deny he sent the team out with a gameplan designed to give us the best chance of winning possible. Spurs had loads of shots on target but only once did Dave have to pull off the remarkable. He's allowed to though, it's his job after all, just like Pogba's allowed to play one of the best passes of his United career. If we had a better partner for Lindelof maybe we would have gave up less opportunities and if Sanchez was fit we would have had someone to seamlessly replace one of the front three and maintain the intensity of our forward press.

It was a very good performance and the areas to improve upon are clear, what's not to like?

Shan,

I don't think anybody thinks Ole should have the job yet, we are just enjoying what is happening at the moment and want it to continue. It is all like a bit of a dream, we were a terrible side struggling to hold on to 6th, nowhere near top 4 with a negative goal difference only a month ago, to see where we are now you can't be surprised that people are excited and enjoying it. I wanted a good performance yesterday, if we had lost then so be it, luckily we got the performance, a good tactical display and the result, what a great day.

It might not have been a 'good performance' but at 1-0 in the last 20 minutes we had more shots on target than we had away against Liverpool in the whole game. Spurs were brilliant 2nd half and our keeper is part of our team so he is allowed to make saves. I actually think most keepers would have saved the majority of the chances but they have to be made and De Gea is back to his best.

Jose certainly wasn't hanged for the Chelsea result, we played well and nearly beat them, very unlucky to concede last minute, don't re-write history to make a point, it just makes the rest of your post seem silly as well.


5.) 14 Jan 2019 15:21:04
I am sorry, I don't get the lucky comment.

Dave the Save is doing the job he is employed to do. and doing it well, it is not luck.

An the rest of the team did well too.

We should have scored more.

I find it infuriating when we win and fans call it luck, it isn't.
We were the better team on the day.

The aim is to win by scoring more goals and letting fewer in. We did this, ergo sum, we deserved to win.

Luck does not come into it.


6.) 14 Jan 2019 16:32:29
Gds bud, the only thing we are enjoying right now is the fact that jose isn't here. Yesterday was not a good performance where we scored one and hung on for dear life. The first 3 were good performances, the last 3 games have been iffy to say the least. Also, as was demonstrated by the game yesterday, shots on goal count to nought unless they go in.


7.) 14 Jan 2019 16:33:23
Hellblazer,

Not sure I agree we were the better team on the day, that isn't to say we didn't play well, we were the better team in the 1st half but we would be devastated to not get anything if we had played how they did in the 2nd half, they were brilliant, it was a very good game with 2 good teams in form.


8.) 14 Jan 2019 16:47:26
Jose would have gone to play for a draw. We would most likely have conceded and with his tactics would've been unable to get back into the game.


9.) 14 Jan 2019 18:42:55
We must have watched a different game Shan. Thought we could have scored more than 1 in first half and for last 30/ 35 We conceded quite a few shots but to say it wasn't a good performance at all? I'm not shouting from the rooftops but we went to Wembley against a very good spurs side, created a good few chances, played some very nice football and won? 6 out of 6?


10.) 14 Jan 2019 23:31:15
There's a narrative running throughout the media, that DDG was all that stopped us from getting a damn good thrashing on Sunday. From what I saw, we could have been 2 or 3 up at half-time. As expected, a team sitting third in the league, a very good team, who were chasing a one goal deficit, were always going to come at us in the second. But still, shots on target finished 11-8, so hardly the one-sided game you'd think from reading the papers today.

And agree, Hellblazer - a goalie is as integral a part of the team as anyone else. He did his job well, which is what we expect a goalie to do. Anyone would think we were playing with an extram man or something.


11.) 15 Jan 2019 01:59:46
Noucamp, they are jealous because on his day DDG is like we have an extra man impassable! 😊.

Absolutely brilliant. that david de gea is some GK. The second half was a typical Jose performance and we were lucky to hold on in that second half but i am not complaining. Rashford CAN score. I am glad.

This is a very good spurs team. They were missing a few in midfield, but all their stars were there up front. What a fantastic team performance. DDG was immense second half, games like this may just convince him to stay, give him whatever he wants and sign him up Woody.


2.) 13 Jan 2019 19:05:50
Along side extending martial, ddg and Herrera's contract we need to get a cb in this month, Jones spent the entire game in kane's pocket.


3.) 13 Jan 2019 19:08:08
Brilliant DDG tho a lot saveable, rode out luck but tactics was good from Ole, another question answered, dangerous attacks and could’ve had a few ourselves m, thought we deserved the win tbh. 6 in a row, what about it now, beaten Poch. Said it all along, going to be hard to shift Ole on now.


4.) 13 Jan 2019 19:14:40
We can’t have won we can only beat the useless teams 🤣🤣 yes Rashford can score because he’s a hell of a lot better than you give him credit for, did you see the stats against Kane at the same age? We have a potential world class player at the club and I can’t wait to see him achieve it.


5.) 13 Jan 2019 19:24:05
A typical Mourinho second half vs Spurs would have resulted in a 3-0 loss, no?


6.) 13 Jan 2019 19:48:56
I, shine the 2 halves the other way round. They dominate first half, have 11shots on target, and then second half we dominate and take the win with them not having a shot on target. The fact is was the other way round has expletive calling us lucky which is harsh.


7.) 13 Jan 2019 20:06:04
? Very fot fungers.

Good shout that Shappy. Both great options and won't cost much, but then again its United so even stones cost us diamonds. Wonder what happened with Bertrand. Remember he was linked to us and he is a good option for Shaw to compete with. Are there no fullbacks in our academy?

I am not complaining here guys. But you got to keep in mind the other aspects of the game. We are playing Darmian behind him and he was conpletely left exposed against Leicester because Mata didn't have the legs to help out. If Mata plays centrally, then he is brilliant but on the wings you need to help out your fullback which is where Mata lacks.

Yeah, agreed he was poor. So either ways he isn't in today so may be Martial or Rashford down the left. I also hope Mata doesn't start. My granny who is 92 now runs faster than him.

Well said Ken and i am surprised to say it but i agree with the beast.

Guys i don't hate Rashford. I would be very happy to see him succeed. But as Beast said, i am just not sure if that would be in Manchester.

I understand the sentiment of all of you with his age and him being local. But i am a modern day man and i live in the present. Its a cut throat world and this business is almost the spear. We want to compete with the best out there and yet we are willing to compromise with mediocre. Rashford MAY turn out to be great but is he good enough now? Can you compete with Real, PSG, Juve, Barca, Bayern, City, Chelsea with the quality of a Rashford? I just don't see it. Besides, how many of these top teams really have the patience to live in hope of developing players and still be at the top. You guys had the patience with moyes or lvg? No. More than half on here still don't have the patience to live with Jose but i guarantee you would kill to have jose as the manager if he were Mancunian.

I do not hate Rashford.

True Tony. that's the reason i didn't call for him being shown the door. I just gave a choice of another position for him in the team. So when de gea leaves, we still have rashford to stop all the goals.

Yes angelred, Beckham is a legend in the world of football, not Man Utd legend though. His stature in the world and his activities for UNICEF sports development programme accord him that status. The guy even has a movie named after him, Bend it like Beckham. Must be something special in that right foot.

Apologise my butt GDS2.

Tony, i was 12 at the time but that moment still gives. me the jitters every time i watch it, although the rest of the game wasnt exciting.

Interesting and good arguments put forth by almost everyone, except for GDS2 who thinks of himself as the moral police on here, and i agree to most of you guys. I repeat myself that i mean no disrespect to Ole but for me a legend is a term that should be used for stalwarts, someone larger than life in the history of the club. I agree Ole was there at the right place at the right time in 99 and scored a few more goals as a sub but for me that isn't enough to be called a legend of the club. Yes his name is etched in the history books and he was a United star at the time but still not a legend.

Cantona babysat the class of 1992 and brought out the man in them. Even SAF dare not point a finger at him as he carried the team. Even his kungfu is legendary. Solskjaer was 4th striker in the team most times and was in a team that had Keane, Scholes, Giggs, Beckham, RVN in their prime so it wasnt a one man show with him.

Ken all those qualities define a good footballer not a legend.

Hey but i am not arguing with anyone here. Just put up a question because i think we use the term legend way too casually.

Still don't see the criteria Shappy. Valencia has played 8 years. Macheda scored a brilliant goal and an important one. Chicharito scored many such goals. Is Sheringham a legend? He scored the first one against Munich. Is Carrick a legend on his tenure? I mean no disrespect to Ole, he was a great servent of the club but not a legend in my eyes. Ole's Legendary status is a romantic/ sentimental notion based om that night in Barcelona.

The irony on this redseven is that not only these highly paid craps turned on Jose Mourinho, the so called fans backed the players and got Jose sacked. Now that they have an old united player (nothing special) incharge, they see fault in the players. Standards have shifted from the manager to the players. My question is where is Giggs or Scholes? Has he suddenly retired from punditry? Havent seen a comment from them in the past 2 months? We have become a joke and i don't feel like i have missed a game if i don't watch one.
