Ryan Sessegnon seems to get better and better. Massive talent at his age. With us badly needing a decent LB, just wondered ED002 If United are keeping tabs on him? Have we any interest at all? Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 21 Jan 2018 00:53:06
Shame. Think he’ll go right to the top of the game.

{Ed007's Note - And wishing he was Kieran Tierney....

2.) 21 Jan 2018 07:18:06
We have a decent left back, his name is Luke Shaw.

3.) 21 Jan 2018 08:45:12
And oh how reliable he’s proven to be over the last 3/ 4 years. He needs proper competition, it’s a weak area in our side.

4.) 21 Jan 2018 10:24:37
If We keep the Shaw we have seen the way 4/ 5 matches we have a player on our hands. Remains to be seen. Don’t see what’s wrong with keeping Darmian to fill in on both sides as and when (unless he wants to leave to play regular football) . Don’t forget Young has been excellent too this season. If TFM comes back next season he can provide good cover at right back.

Midfield is where we need some serious re-inforcements now we have Sanchez coming.

5.) 21 Jan 2018 11:43:27

Because it’s all about shiny new signings mate, forget the dead wood we already have, they are all useless.

6.) 21 Jan 2018 13:09:04
Keeping Darmian means blocking the chance of any comptetent right sided full back. That is to say stopping us getting a full back that can defend, attack at pace, can put in a good cross and who might chip in with the odd goal.

7.) 21 Jan 2018 13:05:13
I haven't seen enough of Ryan, but from what I've heard he will soon be at a top club in the PL. On the other hand I've watched Tierney on a couple of occasions and I think we should go for him. Young could be cover for Valencia and Shaw and Tierney can battle for the LB.

8.) 21 Jan 2018 13:22:40
Ryan looks a very good player could and might play a bit further forward in the future.

9.) 21 Jan 2018 14:01:53
Let's remember also that if rojo is good enough to play left back for Argentina in a world cup final then he ie certainly good enough to play left back for us.

10.) 21 Jan 2018 14:41:59
No he'S not.

11.) 21 Jan 2018 14:43:37
Argentina’s left options must be dire then because Rojo is shocking at left back not having a dig at him because I think he’s a very good centre back but left he is terrible.

12.) 21 Jan 2018 15:42:26
I dnt think he'll be a left back for much longer in his career! He's basically a LWB right now at Fulham. Wouldn't surprise me if he ends being a LW in his prime years!

13.) 21 Jan 2018 16:11:43
I agree, may move forward like bale did.

14.) 21 Jan 2018 22:43:12
Competent right beck BFB? Darmian plays for Italy. The mastersof defending.

15.) 24 Jan 2018 17:35:08
Worst italy team for 80 years.



15 Jan 2018 16:00:57
Ed002, sorry to bother, just wondered if there was any update with regards to Sanchez. With Wengers saying it could be done in 24/ 48 hours is there any progress ether way? Where do you see his most likely destination? Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer "most likely" questions sensibly. Wenger ill likely be right that it will be completed soon - perhaps in the next couple of days but there is no agreement just yet.}

1.) 15 Jan 2018 16:05:19
Twitchy bum time, we'll just have to wait and see.

2.) 15 Jan 2018 16:09:48
No probs ed, cheers.

3.) 15 Jan 2018 16:15:06
Notice that it says will be completed but not where he will complete to. I still struggle to believe he will be a Utd player with it seeming so nailed on for city for so long.



08 Aug 2017 20:46:54
Will that be the end of the Bale rumours?


1.) 08 Aug 2017 22:31:19
Does that actually change anything if they only wanted to sell him if they get Mbappe?
Would he have been playing if Ronaldo was fit?

2.) 09 Aug 2017 05:55:54

3.) 09 Aug 2017 07:00:11
Would Isco not be available if Mbappe comes in AND Bale stays?

4.) 09 Aug 2017 07:25:48
Allen. Did u watch bale last night? You don't think he would be a big upgrade on anyone in our team then? He would be our best player and give us a whole new dimension.

5.) 09 Aug 2017 09:04:35
But if he doesn't want to come then its pointless chasing after him.

6.) 09 Aug 2017 10:07:53
Mort, exactly, hence the OP.

7.) 09 Aug 2017 10:30:01
dont clubs usually ask the agent if his player would be willing to join and I'd imagine if we got told he (bale) has no desire to join us then we just wouldn't pursue him so if we are interested like the eds have said we are then we must have been encouraged to carry on pursuing.

I've no idea if this makes any sense my heads a shed from just writing it 😀.

8.) 09 Aug 2017 11:03:37
I think i know what you mean dave :-)

9.) 09 Aug 2017 11:10:57
And bales agent has always said that his client is going nowhere. Wd bale improve our team. probably. but not at a cost of 90m.
Despite being 32 cr7 is valued 40m more than when we sold him in his prime. Bale despite being only 28 is valued the same as he was 4 years ago, this in an era when transfer fees are rocketing. Why has bales value not risen? 3 reasons imo. injury record, the loss of that extreme pace that made him so devastating previously and the fact that RM would happily cash in on him if he could be persuaded to leave so that they could buy mbappe.
Good player yes but not worth 90m or so with his injury record.
Would prefer isco all day long as I suspect RM will when la liga kicks off.

10.) 09 Aug 2017 11:56:55
I watched the game and he did very little can see why he might be available. He is no where as influential in that Madrid team as the other guys (modric, isco, kroos, Ronaldo, benzema) and for me influences the game very little. For 90 million I would rather spend it on 2 other players.

He does no defending and good in a counter attack sense where he has a lot of room to run into. Put Martial or Rashford into that real team and they would thrive as well if given the chance to run one on one at defenders.

I would not be surprised if Real come calling in a year or two for our guys.

11.) 09 Aug 2017 13:29:17
Watching us last night I wish we had signed Bernardo silva He can keep the ball, we are miles away, Lukaku did nothing to impress me or change my mind about him, didn't look mobile, or have a great touch.

12.) 09 Aug 2017 15:46:53
Still think we need a CM who can control the game Herrera for me isn't good enough he's a jack of all trades master of none. With matic at DM I would prefer a more technical player than Herrera I like him but to get to the next level we need a modric or silva type player who can unlock deep defences and keep Possesion in tight areas.

13.) 10 Aug 2017 09:26:00
Lukaku is all brain, he's reading of the game is just on another level :D.



14 Jul 2017 17:55:44
Matic missing Chelsea tour. Think it's imminent then.


1.) 14 Jul 2017 20:22:26
Juventus are supposedly interested too.



09 Jul 2017 13:52:20
All the best Wayne Rooney. We had 8-9 really good years from him. Hope he is successful back at Everton.


1.) 09 Jul 2017 13:58:13

2.) 09 Jul 2017 18:24:23
After Ronaldo left he practically carried us.

I quite like supporting a mediocre team, no expectations so no disappointment at results. Long reign our mediocrity.

2.) 03 Oct 2019 20:23:31
No mugs AZ, the new dutch power, an experimental team, returning injured players or those who have no game time, take a point away, we was playing away away at den hag 👀.

3.) 03 Oct 2019 20:40:34
William's played well. Matic agin was poor. Dalot looked good at times. We lack a fully fit squad. This season will be a progression season for the youngsters.

4.) 03 Oct 2019 20:52:00
Every team lack a fully fit squad.

“Very happy with the boys, we come away with a good performance. Should have been three points, a nailed on penalty. You can't even discuss it. Good performance against a good opponent on a very bad surface. ”.

That was very uninspiring to say the least! 🙄.

Post yesterday, post today, neither coming through? Any ideas why Ed?


{Ed033's Note - Yes, the Ed that read your posts, placed both those posts on the Man United Match Posts page, probably because they were talking about the Match?

1.) 01 Oct 2019 19:31:05
Thanks for the reply! I didn't know this page existed.

{Ed033's Note - Yes, this site has a rumours page, a banter page, a discussion page and a match posts page accessible from the top menu

2.) 01 Oct 2019 21:56:04
Also on your 5000th post you can gain access to the secret pages which include Ed007s funny stories which make Rowley Birkin QC seem tame, Ed 25s recipe page including 25 ways to make pot noodles tasty, and Ed001s hidden page where he posts vids of his impressions of famous sportsmen (and women) his peter crouch has to be seen to be believed.

{Ed025's Note - good stuff mort..

How do I find out how many posts more I need to make until I unlock these hidden pages? 🤔.

{Ed047's Note - there is no way DB which makes it all the more exciting when they unlock.

"25 Jul 2019 23:34:54
Looking like another farce of a window in all honesty. Bissaka class deal. Very happy with that. James is still a kid with a lot to prove. Just a few weeks left and messing around lowballing, haven't addressed CB, CM or CF yet. Talks of Maguire, Bruno, SMS etc, I can't see anyway we wrap those deals up. Ed does his usual dithering, miss out on big players who would make the difference. I can't see anything other than a fight for 4-6th again. At most I see us eventually paying £80 odd million for Maguire. Get Bruno and sms in and give us a chance.


I posted this in July and got hammered for it by a lot of regulars on here. Even the drama queen award I think too. I got told we had improved morale, improvement in Rashford and McTom, the youngsters stepping up etc etc. Does anyone think maybe I was correct in my assessment? Has anyone seen anything in the first few games to think we will even have a chance at challenging top 4? I said 4-6th and to be honest with that I've seen I think 6th is unlikely. Shambles how this huge club is run. Shambles how Ole was given the managed job after a little decent run against poor sides. His record in the last 15 games is nothing short of pathetic. This club is falling further and further from the elite sides.


1.) 31 Aug 2019 18:04:39
Good away point at Southampton though stand. A lot of the top teams will go there and struggle to perform 😉.

2.) 31 Aug 2019 18:45:57
You can't post anything on here that's negative because you just get shot down.

We have 2 world class players and even that is debatable

Other than a decent defence which has only kept 1 clean sheet so far and shaw is now injuired there is nothing to be positive about this squad

We are 4 games in and struggling to break teams down and score.

{Ed047's Note - genuine question Bolger but which two do you consider to be World Class?

3.) 31 Aug 2019 19:37:38
It really is that bad. Our midfield is pathetic. The only good player is pogba and he doesn't want be here. Mctom is simply not good enough and I doubt he ever will be. Would be good cover and someone to bring on to close out a game, but nothing more. Pereira just seems a bit rubbish and I don't see him making it. And that's it beyond an old knackered dm and a bunch of kids.

Up front, Rashford isn't a reliable tip tier striker, he just isn't good enough. Martial might make it, Mata is old and slow, the rest are kids.

With the joke of a midfield we'll likely never know if Martiall and possibly even Rashford could make it, as the service is so poor.

Out of front 6, the only players that could potentially move to and play regularly at say City or pool is pogba, if he sorts his attitude out, and maybe Martiall if he can live up to his potential. How many of city or Liverpool front 6 could get into our first team?

Add to that we have a novice manager, we really have no chance of success whatsoever.

All we have is hope, and that fades a little more with every game.

{Ed047's Note - Pogba would not get near City or Liverpool’s side, I wouldn’t even have him at Arsenal red.

4.) 31 Aug 2019 19:44:49
It would be an argument that only pogba and dave can be classed in that bracket.

The pogba you get for France that is.

And although dave has not been the same player the past season he is still a class keeper.

5.) 31 Aug 2019 19:47:18
Pogba gets carried every game. I'm sure if he was dropped, we would play better.

6.) 31 Aug 2019 20:03:27
Well let's hope madrid come up with an offer that we can't say no to.

7.) 31 Aug 2019 20:04:02
Ed, I think if you put pogba in one of their teams you'd see an exquisite player. His creativity and ability would shine with the amount of space and movement he'd have around him.

{Ed047's Note - just don’t see it Red, there’s no way either of those sides would carry him. He literally does next to nothing in every game.

8.) 31 Aug 2019 20:04:06
Christ ye lot are really disluioned if you think pogba and ddg are anywhere near world class.

{Ed047's Note - Pogba never has been nor will he ever be, DDG certainly was but is not at the moment.

9.) 31 Aug 2019 20:12:24
This is not a knee jerk reaction. United will not finish in the top 6 this season. Any team that sits deep we will struggle against as we lack creativity. Any team that wants to play will always have a chance because what chances we make we do not convert enough so will always be in the game add to that our squad is very thin, we missed martial today a player who does convert chances. Rashford is not that player I do not think he ever will be.

United are a very average side at full strength so a couple of injuries to key players and I say that loosely I think we’re looking at 10th. I've accepted this as we’re going to need patience and a few transfer windows though fear the type of player we need to take the next step will not want to join. I lived through the 80s when we was bang average and was a cup side at best. Those days may be back until we have a board and manager on the same page.

10.) 31 Aug 2019 20:23:05
Pele was world class at one time as well don't mean I want him on my team now. says a lot utds two best players are a winger who's all round play is very poor to day the least, but has scored with nearly every shot and a right back who can cross or play a forward pass, and won't give 5 assists during the league.



12 Aug 2019 08:09:21
Good result yesterday and a really good second half performance. I worried for us first half, we were poor and Chelsea were the better side until the goal.

Defence looked much improved. Maguire and Bissaka looked like they had been here years, the back 5 looks settled for the first time in years. Shaws give from the best of the back line to probably the weak link overnight, although he's still decent. Lindelöf continues to impress me, think he can be top class, hopefully with a settled partnership he will fulfill his potential.

McTom is improving and worthy of his place at the mo, but what a shame we didn't add a coupe on midfield. Had we added a CM such as SMS and a creative mod like Eriksen we would have a side Capable of challenging. Frustrating.

My worry is the teams that sit 10 behind the ball. I think we'll be fine with teams that play high up the pitch and leave space for the pacy to run into, but the sides who sit in deep with everyone behind the ball ie when you need that creative magic that a player like Eriksen brings regularly. Pogba is more than capable but has to nant off days and wants out.

Anyway I haven't changed my prediction that we won't get top 4, but it was good to see and a good result.


1.) 12 Aug 2019 08:28:40
Against teams sitting back is where Maguire gives us another dimension.
He will step into midfield thereby giving an extra body in attack.

2.) 12 Aug 2019 09:11:11
I thought it was the first half tactics that made shaw look as poor as he did, he was constantly getting into 2v1 situations as rashford wasn't tracking azplicueta.

3.) 12 Aug 2019 10:00:39
Shaw will look worse as teams will realise it is pretty pointless attacking down the right.

Greenwood will be important against teams that sit back I think, they are the games where he will start to get his goal tally up, he will add another dimension to an already very dynamic attack.

4.) 12 Aug 2019 10:17:47
We are completely set up for the counter attack (hence us doing better after Chelsea had to find an equaliser) so solid defence will be crucial all season.

Trouble might be when we have to find a way through teams who park the bus (unless we coax them into attacking us so we can then get behind them) or teams realise we are one dimensional and play only one way - and plan to nullify this.

We will also struggle against superior midfields.

However, looks like we will take our chances and we’re still a work in progress. Still buzzing after yesterday and increasingly confident of reaching the top 4.

5.) 12 Aug 2019 10:51:12
The teams that sit back might provide an opportunity for mata. He can play 10 in that instance and pull the strings from the edge of the box using his guile to unlock defences. We can Also try Gomes at 10 and let him weave some magic.



02 Aug 2019 16:33:10
I'm really not sure he's the right player, and the money is absurd for a player of his ability. BUT. he improves the side, so I guess we have to be happy ish with the deal. We really need to tread carefully because were in danger on genuinely becoming a 4th-6th side for the long term. I'm not confident in the direction we are heading. I don't think Ole is the man. I don't trust Woodward and to be frank we don't have many top players. Feels like this season is huge for the direction of this club for the next ten years.


1.) 02 Aug 2019 16:53:58

The has to be one of the worst posts I've seen on this site in all the years I've been coming on.


5.) 02 Aug 2019 17:43:24
Stand how are you mate?
I agree with some of what you say and disagree with some.
I think we have just signed 2 top epl players and a wildcard in james that adds something we have been sorely missing in blistering pace. He will be an important option this season.
Martial looks likely to improve. Rashford also.
Mctom will force his way into the team and looks to be improving very well.
Shaw and lindelof took big steps forward and needs to again this season.
Pogba looks likely to stay i just hope it works out.

Im not sure there is much improvement in mata rojo smalling jones matic jessie periera young or sanchez but new blood like chong greenwood gomes and tuanzebe could see the end of some of that old guard.

So we still do need a couple more.
Is ole the man? He has the job so let's wait and see.
To me its obvious that we need a DoF of sorts. i'm not sure on the score of that role without knowing the reset of the structure but with the autonomy for transfer and player and contract negotiations for sure.

Im 100% convinced Liverpool will lose more than 1 game this season. I think we will improve and from where we are that's what i want to see. I want to see players wanting to and be able to compete.
I think we will sign 2 more players if we do and get a good start we will compete to win trophies next season.

6.) 02 Aug 2019 18:44:36

You do realise this is the Manchester United rumours site.?

How dare you have anything positive to say.

I am never reading your posts again, unless you adopt a more negative attitude and start believing football is the most important thi. g in the world and also it is you who has to single handedly raise the money for transfers.

Off with his head.

Wazza how can he be his preferred choice of the two when Dybala isn’t here yet? Rashford May be his preferred choice with what we have. Rashford hardly set the world alight. He didn’t bang in 25 goals did he. To talk as if someone’s position is set in stone isn’t good for anyone. Anyone and I mean anyone including your best players should feel they have to perform to keep their place in the side.

Ed004 I agree with you he’s our best player, by that I mean most talented. But it doesn’t take away from the fact he’s not a team player. He wants everyone to do the hard graft for him to play the Hollywood pass. Always the same. I also don’t care if his attitude pre season has been good, last season I watched numerous games he let players literally walk past him without any effort to win the ball, players run off him with no effort again. When your a world class side you can carry a player or two like him. We cannot afford a luxury like that. So for me he needs to go.

It’s fans with your mindset who accept this mediocrity we have stooped too who are half the problem. The club has been run into the ground.

Red Man, I agree with pretty much most of your posts, but this one I can’t agree with. I don’t see anyway we get anything from this game. I think we’ll be under the cosh from the off and be lucky to keep the score line under 0-2. We don’t score goals so don’t expect to.

The 6 years of dross and the shambolic football Ole is serving you certainly won’t be forgotten about with one win. Having said that we’ll be lucky to keep it respectable against them, they have a proper coach.
