Surely the rumours of John McGinn being 'monitored' are nonsense?


1.) 30 Jun 2019 09:05:23
Nonsense I expect, but he is actually a superb box to box player. Scores goals, great on the ball and loads of energy. He will be considered a top league by the end of the season.

2.) 30 Jun 2019 09:18:11
I'd imagine they are nonsense. However, I've seen a lot of McGinn since he played at Hibs and he is a good player. I don't think he will ever get to a level where he is considered good enough to be first choice at United but he will show this season he is clearly a Premier League player and he will spend the majority of his career in the Premier League. For me he is a player who will end up at a Leicester, Everton or West Ham level.

Im from scotland and seen john mcginn play for years and followed him when he moved to aston villa. I
can assure you he is more hard working and industrious gives 100 percent every time he plays which is more than can be said of any midfielder we have got at club at the moment granted i wouldn't pay 50 but if we could get him for 20 that would be a steal in this market.

4.) 30 Jun 2019 12:19:44
I am also from Scotland and have seen him play plenty. The boy is good but he isn't Man Utd good.

5.) 30 Jun 2019 13:26:05
What is man utd good these days scott mctominay matic periera or fred take your pick i would take mcginn over any of them.

Ed, is there any interest in Kieran Tierney or is that just Scottish pub talk?


{Ed007's Note - There's always interest in KT but the Club don't want to sell and the lad has no intentions of leaving Celtic for long time yet.}

1.) 17 Dec 2018 18:50:14
Cheers Ed 00Henrik!

Can see KT staying a long time but hope he makes the jump at some point to a club like Utd. Anything less wouldn't tempt him I imagine.

{Ed007's Note - If (probably when) he leaves it'll be a footballing decision rather than money and I know he does have a soft spot for Utd and don't think he would fancy being too far from his family and friends.}

Balague claiming Man Utd bidded €100million for Ansu Fati of Barcelona. He says Barcelona rejected the approach which was made with Jorge Mendes.


1.) 08 Jun 2020 11:45:32
I wouldn't say there is much if any truth in that report.

2.) 08 Jun 2020 12:13:13
Or any report from Balague if we are going to be brutally honest.

3.) 08 Jun 2020 14:06:59
I'm not a linguists but I'm pretty sure Balague is Spanish for Bollocks😂.

Willy Bawbag is a well know bs merchant.

Jones vs Mbappe and Neymar. God help us.


1.) 17 Dec 2018 12:08:09
Can already imagine mourinhos post match press conference where he's salivating over qatars investment and how psg are a big club with big ambition whilst he's stuck with david de gea and 10 planks of wood supposedly.

2.) 17 Dec 2018 12:24:19
I think Neymar and Mbappe have a good chance of out scoring him 😏.

Lindelof is a good centre half.


{Ed047's Note - compared to Chris Smalling or Phil Jones?

When will teams like Utd realise that it would be much cheaper to pick up the likes of Dembele directly from Scottish teams. The next one that will come to a top 6 team via someone else for x10 the fee is Tierney. We should be looking at taking a punt on these players rather than paying fortunes more a couple years later.

Every chance the club were stalling to see if DDG would stay.

RedD - that is the rule hence all the arguments about armpits being offside.

The technology is excellent, the EPL is absolutely butchering its introduction. As for 'clear and obvious', that only applies to subjective decisions. Offaide is a binary, objective decision - hence the mm perfect impression.

As for improving it two things -

Let referees look at the screen.

Set a time limit, no decision within x minutes (2?) = on-field decision stands.

If Harry Maguire wasn't English the people wouldn't fawn over him as much as they do. He runs like he is towing a caravan, he turns slower than Milk and he has been done twice for goals since the restart. He does have top qualities, but he isn't a top CB. For me, Lindelof is better.

As for Bruno, he is untouchable.

Or we needed a quick CB next to Lindelof but instead bought Maguire who has plenty of quality but, as many pointed out, doesn't have the pace to play a high line necessary for attacking football.

Ken, we all form our opinions of strangers (which Pogba is) from what we see, read and hear through other people's lenses. We then, unconsciously or otherwise, let their bias and bigotry affect our views. If we are going to move on as a society we need to admit to ourselves that views on players like Pogba and individuals in society are often bigoted.

Hence why we get the 'immature' drunk drivers like Grealish vs the 'flashy' dabbers like Pogba.

Think you might have me wrong Ken, I agree with mnk.

Pogba gets extra-criticism from the press because he is a successful, young, black muslim. Has he lived up to his pricetag? No. Has he been good enough? Debatable.

What isn't up for debate is that Pogba is a far better pro than most of his predecessors. There are players like Jack Grealish putting people's lives at risk who get nothing compared to what Pogba gets for dancing with his Mum and dabbing.

I am not accusing any individual of being racist, far from it. Instead, all of us shape our opinions of Pogba (and others) from what we read and see in the press and online. The sources we get that information is bigoted and, whether we want to hold our hands up to it or not, that colours our view of him.
