From what Ed02 has posted on Chelsea and Liverpool pages.

Chelsea have made an offer for Saul and expecting to meet the requirements of Athletico, Barcelona and United interested, offer from Barcelona not acceptable, no order from United.

So looks like another world class talent off to Chelsea. And another season of McFred and Matic in the middle of the park. Fighting for 4th.

Stand-United

Keep the faith stand! You never know what might happen we obviously need to sell a few maybe we will get a midfielder.


2.) 25 Aug 2021 20:02:58
We shouldn't need to sell for Saul, it's a loan + option for god's sake. We've got Scott, Fred and Matic for 2 positions, probably none good enough and Matic too old. Come on now, this is literally the most sensible possible deal.


3.) 25 Aug 2021 20:25:16
Neves is a better fit for us.

I rate Saul but he's a Pogba replacement.

Neves could be a good DM for us.


4.) 25 Aug 2021 20:46:40
Neves not done much to convince me last year or two.


5.) 25 Aug 2021 21:11:17
The reality is we need both - but right now we could get Saul off the bat, he may be a Pogba replacement but he's MUCH much better in the pivot. Saul is an excellent tackler and a good positional defender, with a great engine.


6.) 25 Aug 2021 21:34:54
Here come all the Saul experts after seeing five minute clips on you tube!
And also just for all the negative doom merchants saying 4th, 5th etc, we finished second last season and have made two huge signings to improve our 11, have some faith, put your toys back in the pram and support the team! Come on boys 🔴⚪️⚫️.


7.) 25 Aug 2021 22:04:51
We've been linked to him since 2012 man, I've been following the guy since then. Essentially a more polished, well rounded Mctominay, very versatile and a good engine. Of course I'll support the team, but its a goddamn shame that Fred and Scott will be worked to the death again as we've no other options.


8.) 26 Aug 2021 07:07:47
We need sell players or loan a few to reduce our wage bill to sign Saul.


9.) 26 Aug 2021 10:36:18
Don’t talk sense Chris, we drew a game so we are doomed, doomed I tell you. City are going to win the league easily though, they have won both games so far and we are already miles behind and chasing them. Oh wait.


10.) 26 Aug 2021 12:19:41
Gds 2m
You don’t have post some rubbish. Has anyone here said we’re doomed based on the first two games of the season? Your one of these fans that had accepted mediocrity unfortunately. Answer me one question, do you think Ole can win the league with this side? If the answer is no then you agree either the team or the manager needs improving on. I’m my opinion it’s both.


11.) 26 Aug 2021 13:37:10
Saul got dropped towards end of last year because he wasn’t playing well so why would we want him too just be mediocre with us?

Do I think we can challenge with this team yes. We improved right wing and we have improved centre back. Are the centre mid options needing improved possibly but let’s not become spoilt we have two world class players added this year and I’d be okay with going into the season with the team as it is.


12.) 26 Aug 2021 13:42:46
GDS 2 how many points were City behind us when we were top last season? Oh wait.


13.) 26 Aug 2021 13:58:58
Stand,

I’ve seen loads of posts on here saying we have no chance this season after we drew on Sunday mate.

Yes, I think we can challenge for the title this season.


14.) 26 Aug 2021 15:15:46
Gds show me a comment anyone made that we “can’t win the league because we drew on sunday “

Anyone with a view like mine these we can’t win the league is based on the team, the coaching and the manager. 8 years without one if the big trophies.

Do you think Ole is anywhere near as good a manager as klopp, pep or touchel? If not why was he appointed?

Gaza’s, your calling Sancho Workd Class? Really? Potentially one day yeh but now? No chance, he’s not even prem proven and can’t get a game for England.


15.) 26 Aug 2021 16:42:55
Yes I think he’s anywhere near as good as them.

People were quite positive after the first game pal, loads of posts saying they enjoyed it, we did well and have the squad to challenge, we drew on Sunday and this week it’s negative Nancy’s all over the page, so can see where I’ve got that from.


16.) 26 Aug 2021 19:33:49
Stand,

Sancho is world class based on numbers he’s produced in one of the top European leagues and champions league. He’s up there with world class players so that would mean he’s world class. He didn’t play for England because our manager is too defensive to try and play our attacking players.


 

 

20 Jan 2018 22:55:45
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.

Stand-United

{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
Eric,

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
Worth
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.

Stand-United

{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?

Stand-United

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
Hopefully.


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.

Don't post often these days, but felt the need today. Just wanted to say how well Sancho played yesterday and has looked much like the player we hoped for in recent weeks. Looks far more comfortable on the left and has made it his own for sure. Thought he looked dangerous all game again yesterday.

The other thing is we're improving under Ralf, the issue is a lot of average players in the squad, but he's started moving on the players that aren't good enough, plenty more to go i expect. I wouldn't be against him staying on another year, I'd probably prefer that to Poch to be honest.

Stand-United

1.) 21 Feb 2022 15:28:13
His cross for bruno actually came from the right.
He's just been played a lot on the left, hasn't actually played any fair bit on the right.
He's settling in well and unlike some of our other players his passes and crosses are actually accurate.
Really happy for him and hope he remains injury free till the season end.


2.) 21 Feb 2022 15:38:21
Awb and dalot have useless final ball. So it's a rare thing to see good crosses.


3.) 21 Feb 2022 15:58:09
think we need 2 fullbacks in the summer maybe more so a rb, telles i prefer for left back instead of shaw.


4.) 21 Feb 2022 16:23:33
Me too bolger.


5.) 21 Feb 2022 17:19:17
Sancho and Pogba have been the bright sparks in the last 4-5 weeks.
The main concern is that none of our fullbacks are putting in any sort of quality crosses.


6.) 21 Feb 2022 17:47:35
He seems to have a football brain, something I think a lot of modern day wingers lack. His goal against Chelsea he knew Rashford was offside so took it on himself. Fred's goal yesterday, he seen the big picture unfolding and played a lovely ball. His chip for Bruno was beautiful. We lack brains and composure in the wide areas. So many balls just whacked in without a thought about where it's going.

He's been very good. Delighted for him.


7.) 21 Feb 2022 19:11:09
Agree we need better fulbacks who can get past players with some composure and cross intelligent balls. Cash in clearing some players out ronaldo and rashford included. Hurts to say but the new guy for liverpool looks a proper player.


8.) 21 Feb 2022 20:43:11
Get Laird in at RB. Thought he should have been with us from the start of this season. Don’t think we’d lose anything having him in at RB from the start of next season.


9.) 22 Feb 2022 08:24:09
Except for the fact he has shown no reason to be at rb either?


10.) 22 Feb 2022 10:58:46
We have Laird and Williams out on loan - Williams in particular is really turning it around at Norwich. Not seen much of Laird to be honest but he has a good reputation. Not sure we’ll go to market in these positions….


11.) 22 Feb 2022 13:25:32
I think you get a very good sense early on which players are going to ‘make it’. Of course there are exceptions but you could see Rash / Greenwood / Elanga had something extra when they were first introduced. I saw nothing in Williams to suggest he’ll ever be our first choice.


12.) 22 Feb 2022 14:25:13
Spenno, Williams looked good in that he gave it 100% and he had a little bit of a nasty attitude that you need. To me he looked fairly similar to Gary Neville, good solid technique but nothing special but a real worker and possibly a leader.

Whether that's enough to make it at the highest level anymore I couldn't tell you. The competition is much higher than it's ever been.

At very least Williams looked like a solid dependable back up/ squad player.

You mention Elanga and I'm yet to be convinced. I have really enjoyed seeing him in the first team, and I think he's done well. He works hard and he follows the managers instructions, he has pace and good technique. Yet I think he's slightly one dimensional at the moment, which isn't the end of the world he is young and there is plenty of time to develop. But I don't see a top player in him. For me he's no better currently than Januzaj was when he broke into the first team, while in my opinion Januzaj was a more rounded player with a higher ceiling.


13.) 22 Feb 2022 17:10:39
Telles is absolute garbage, i would rather have a 50% fit Shaw playing than a 100% Telles.


14.) 22 Feb 2022 17:34:45
William's played well against Mo Salah for the parts of the match I was watching. I was flicking between that and the chelsea game so didn't see it all. Be he was looking pretty solid.

Is he going to give you the attacking threat you need at a top club, that is the problem.


15.) 22 Feb 2022 18:42:43
Well you get you wish simo we have a 50% fit Shaw playing every week he has only been 50% for since he was 16. Poor full back. Very poor.


16.) 22 Feb 2022 19:22:00
Shappy, for £100k pw I’d give it my all as well. If that’s the remit I should be starting every week.


17.) 22 Feb 2022 19:58:30
Spenno, Williams is not on anywhere near 100k per week.

However, footballers wages are still beyond the comprehension of us mere mortals.

If wages were determined by effort then we'd have the smallest wage bill in the league and not the highest.

Williams is a good solid professional who works hard and seems dedicated to his career. He's talented enough without being a special player.

Maybe he will be good enough as a squad player for us, maybe he'll kick on and be good enough to be first choice, or maybe he'll fall just short and leave the club to have a solid career elsewhere.

Currently as a United fan I'd much rather our club be associated with Brandon Williams than Mason Greenwood, which highlights it's not all about talent.


18.) 23 Feb 2022 00:07:31
Telles is better than shaw. Shaw is just riding off his exploits in the euros.


19.) 23 Feb 2022 05:21:57
Shaw has no positional awareness. He was completely oblivious for the 1st Leeds goal. He fails to track players and often is guilty of ball watching.


20.) 23 Feb 2022 07:48:31
You’re not going to see Williams being an attacking force at Norwich as they’re largely under the cosh every week.

Didn’t Rangnick say he’d be coming back to the squad next season?


21.) 23 Feb 2022 07:55:53
Enough of these nearly players. Who are the bezt full backs in the world and which ones can utd realistic employ?


22.) 23 Feb 2022 09:14:27
Shaw is better at every aspect of going forward other than crossing accuracy than Telles. Yet Telles has a far better understanding and reading of the game meaning defensively he is caught out far less. Yet in terms of defensive duels Shaw is the more robust and wins more than Telles.

Ultimately I think both are only good enough as back up. Although I think Shaw could be better used in a slightly different role. Either as the LCB in a back three or as an inverted LB. That way he wouldn't venture as far forward and as such wouldn't be out of position so much. While both roles would make good use of his passing and his ability to win defensive duels.


 

 

05 Dec 2021 21:46:42
Will take time for the squad to adjust to a new philosophy, new style and what Ralf wants, ultimately they are going to have to work harder than they have before, but even in that one game I saw more to give me hope than in Oles 3 years in charge.

The most encouraging part of the whole thing for me wasn't actually the game, but the after match interview with him. We actually heard from a manager who has a distinct way he wants his team to play, an actual tactical plan, a style. Not just limping 11 on the pitch and hoping for a piece for magic from someone. Was good to hear.

Only negative for me was bringing Sancho off who I thought was really dangerous, he's improving with a run in the side, shock. Rashford was pretty poor again and it should have been him hooked now Sancho.

Stand-United

1.) 06 Dec 2021 07:10:47
My hopes were raised when I saw his first press conference a couple of days ago. That told me that we have a proper manager now with the vision to pull United out of the rut. He needs to be given time (either as a Manager or Consultant) and needs to be given the authority and autonomy to stamp his authority, structure, plan, style on the club.


2.) 06 Dec 2021 14:35:55
It was a breath of fresh air to hear how he spoke. Clear, concise, not pandering to the clubs 'DNA' but acknowledging it and that the modern game is different.

If anything, I hope we get a good structure in place, allowing our new manager to thrive once he takes the reins.


3.) 06 Dec 2021 15:09:36
And no mention of "the boys" or "rashy" or "hendo" which was always mildly irritating - when he left some of them spoke about 'ole" as if he was a team mate- I see Poch getting called out today for not being strict enough with the dressing room at PSG . they are never your friends.


4.) 06 Dec 2021 16:47:29
Bfbw, that PSG dressing room is a mess. You have Mbappe who doesn't want to be there and his head is in Madrid. Messi who's either calling it in and is on the retirement tour, or there is a lot of truth in the notion that Messi couldn't hack it in another league in a team that isn't built around him. While Neymar is a law unto himself, regularly gets "injured" around certain times of year then buggers off to spend his "recovery" time with his family in Brazil or wherever else they feel like jetting off to.

Add to that some temperamental ego's like Icardi, Di Maria, Verratti and Donnarumma and you have a recipe for disaster.

They've managed to gather the most talented but mentally questionable squad in world football.

It's a poisoned chalice managing that bunch.


5.) 06 Dec 2021 18:06:10
You are not wrong there Shappy.


 

 

01 Nov 2021 10:57:36
Another top manager on his way to another rival club, while we continue with a league two standard manager, utterly pathetic spineless scrotes running this shambles of a club.

Stand-United

1.) 01 Nov 2021 11:08:59
I don’t think Conte’s 3-5-2 works for us long term, too many high profile players that don’t fit into that system and a I’m not sure he is the right fit for the club at all, so more than happy for him to go to spurs.


2.) 01 Nov 2021 11:44:33
He’s a winner gds, and with him usually staying a couple of years max would leave us time to select the new one for 2 years from now, in the mean time actually competing, not like the clown in charge now.


3.) 01 Nov 2021 12:18:18
I agree we can do better but ‘not being Ole’ shouldn’t be the reason we employ the next manager.


4.) 01 Nov 2021 13:41:36
II agree we need to change, but need a proper thought out process, something the club have failed to do since SAF left.


5.) 01 Nov 2021 18:02:41
Disagree GDS. I think 3-5-2 is exactly what we need. It compresses the middle of the park and makes us more solid.
Spurs are not great, but united didn't give them any space to play. That's what you call tactics.


 

 

17 Sep 2021 23:08:58
Despite the midfield being woeful, and I truly mean woeful when I talk about Fred, McTom and Matic as the options, there is still plenty in the squad to win trophies. The problem is we have a very very average at best manager who isn't improving, with over ten years of management he still looks lost in game. Until that is addressed I would put my house on us winning nothing substantial.

Juergen Klopp would win the league with this squad. Conte is available, why don't we just part ways with the hopeless one and actually get a guy who knows what he's doing in to lead the biggest club in football.

Stand-United

1.) 17 Sep 2021 23:54:52
Because its a happy camp and Shaw is playing well.
Stand i'm with you but they just have him a contact so it will take a pretty bad run of results to get him out i think.
You can't help feeling its always just around the corner but we have a good run of games now where we face no top side before the international break we can't afford to from points in these games.


2.) 18 Sep 2021 00:36:47
Don't agree with any of that stand, but keep em coming buddy.


3.) 18 Sep 2021 01:57:02
I wonder who will get the blame, when Ole fails to deliver again because it looks like he's immune. Another top 4 finish, maybe with a higher point total from last season. No need to win trophies. Closing the points gap to the league winners will suffice. Winning trophies doesn't equate to making progress.


4.) 18 Sep 2021 03:37:06
Looks like he's immune Love? I would say about 90% of the site has him on death row just waiting for the next loss. I'm just trying to represent a little of the overly positive minority.

But when we win the league and ucl this year, I'll be the one that enjoyed the season the most. More than those that are just hoping for the next loss or bad result to get the knives out again.


5.) 18 Sep 2021 06:32:32
I think many fans need to wake up and realise that the ambitions of the owners and the people who run the club might not align with the ambitions of the supporters.

Everything we hear coming out from the club is that they are very happy with Ole, and that they have made absolutely no plans or even investigated replacing him. They have hired people like Murtagh and Fletcher to work with Ole and have even agreed to hire Eric Ramsey as an additional coach for Ole. Adding to his staff and further cementing him in place.

The only way Ole leaves is if he fails their targets and not ours.

They seem content with a top four finish and a good cup run or two. Trophies seem like a bonus and not a hard objective. While keeping all the expensive employees (assets) happy makes the running of the club at board level much easier.

As long as Ole gets top four he will be out manager.

This idea of how many points he needs or style of play or level of entertainment (as subjective as that is) is totally irrelevant, it means nothing and it has no bearing on Ole's future at the club.

While a few people getting their knickers in a twist online holds no real power unless they turn dissenting voices into real world action. The decision makers at the club will only consider it disgruntled fans sounding off after a defeat, and nothing to worry about.

We have seen that the club act in a very arrogant way with other clubs and that this arrogance impacts transfer related activities. We can safely assume that this arrogance extends to fan support. They know you won't stop supporting the club, buying the merchandise, paying for TV subscriptions and buying season tickets. Even if a few of you do, we have over a billion fans worldwide and the tiny amount you impact it isn't of any significance.

They base their decisions on the money, and in real terms us fans have very little impact on that. The bulk of our money comes from TV revenue which is locked in, sponsorship which at worst requires a top four finish, and being in the UCL, and the merchandise which unless a significant proportion of the fans base (20%+) do something then it won't be impactful enough to make them change their plans.

From a financial perspective all Ole needs to do is a top four finish. Why would an investor such as the Glazers spend their dividends chasing trophies which bring little to no big financial return.

So don't be surprised if we finish 4th and 25 points off of 1st and Ole stays. Don't pin your hopes of a shiny new manager on your preconceived ideas of what success or failure looks like, you will only end up disappointed.

Most people agree that with this squad, we are finally in a position to win something. Considering - in addition to that - we were second last year without this squad, how about we stop ‘fire Ole because I don’t believe he we will win anything’ and actually support the manager and team and see if we do?

Said this many times on here. We support the club not transient employees, which the manager is. Calling to support him is naive at best because he and any manager has to earn respect for the work they do and at United that means winning the league or EC. Ole has never given us a sign that he can win the big trophy, having a happy squad doesn’t bring that, leadership, decisiveness knowledge and experience are usually required, he has none of that.

How will top players who are here to win things feel about Ole when they see his coaching work and if they don’t win trophies? I suspect Varane Bruno and Ronaldo are not here to enjoy a feel good for Ole factor.

In terms of the owners they sacked Moyes thank goodness and therefore hopefully they want the share price to rise like it did when they signed Ron. It won’t do that sat in fourth place every season. They signed Tom Brady in the States and it won them the Super Bowl, if it doesn’t look like Ronaldo does it to win the league for Ole then I wouldn’t rule out a sacking. I can but hope he goes then we can all get over this ridiculous emotional roller coaster with him.

Db why would you enjoy winning more than any other supporter.
Are you a superior supporter to others? Do you see yourself above other supporters?


9.) 18 Sep 2021 08:15:17
Fgic. Everybody supports the team and wants them to win.


10.) 18 Sep 2021 08:49:27
ken- we play west ham, villa and everton next 3 epl games- we've struggled in the past and west ham and everton ain't playing too shabby atm. First and foremost I support the team, the management side dont, and have never really interest me but what i perceive as blatantly obvious, is the club have put the money on the table for signings (cant ask much more) but the piece of jigsaw that doesn't fit is the manager and coaching staff. If we cannot get major trophies with the team we are capable of fielding there can only be way to point the finger- ogs and his rock steady crew.


11.) 18 Sep 2021 08:50:31
The painful thing is we have a squad that potentially challenge for the title till the end.
But we have the worst possible manager to lead us to the title race.
Literally any manager from any division can do the job what ole is doing.
All I hear is he has improved players, he's a man manager etc etc.
Apart from maybe Luke Shaw who has he genuinely improved?
And who knows if the improvement was done by ole or if Luke Shaw actually matured and decided he cannot waste his talent like that. He's kept people happy, which any normal office employee can by doing yes man, yes sir.
Ole is nothing but a European Ted Lasso. Even Ted Lasso has an assistant coach who is like Roy Keane, Ole is worse than him.
We decided to fully back Jose once and he brought a europa league.
We never truly backed Moyes, we backed LVG a couple of times and he got a FA Cup.
We have backed Ole so many times now, and gave him a window from a football managers dream.
Out of all the strikers, Ronaldo was the best available in the market. Same goes for Varane, maybe Ramos is better but same level.
And out of wide players available Sancho was up there in the top 3.
We even signed one of the best backup GK in Heaton.
The owners after miserable transfer windows have actually delivered. ole has yet to show anything to deserve a seat here.
We are going to start fred and matic again against West ham and do a 1-1 ole classic.


12.) 18 Sep 2021 13:39:05
1-1 if we are lucky . A 2-1 defeat wouldn't surprise me.


13.) 18 Sep 2021 14:07:20
Not at all Ken. I actually enjoyed the game on Tuesday (I watched on wednesday) as I could see the effort, performance of players in adversity.

I appreciated Pogba and Fred looking more like a better version of themselves. DDG starting to look like he's shaken off the cobwebs.

Jesse's comments after the game on social media were heartfelt. The lad messed up badly, but he owned it and even said he was manc through and through and was upset over what he did.

At no point did I see a team that had downed tools. At the end they all rallied round each other. Ronaldo supporting from the touchline.

Squad spirit and fan support is everything and I think this is going to be a big season for us. I just feel it coming. Call it blind optimism if you will, but I can't be the only one that sees that mid week was full of unusual events that caused a 2-1 away loss against a pretty decent Young Boys team.

I'm trying not to call out others view on here. But many posts are saying things like "we all agree/ everyone can see that Ole is useless" type posts. Since midweek there was barely a positive post, so I'm at least attempting to whisper up for a more positive view point.

And yes, I do think we will win big trophies with Ole in place this year, or next when we inevitably sign a declan rice type player and a more attacking rb. I actually agree with you (! ) That I don't understand how someone can say Ole won't win the league, but we should keep him anyway. If you don't believe he will win, why would you want to keep him?


14.) 18 Sep 2021 14:38:07
Db why say you will emotional it more than others if we win? That's what I don't understand.


15.) 18 Sep 2021 15:02:05
Why I will enjoy it more? Like I said, I took enjoyment from the performance this week. Some posts read like there was zero enjoyment.

I am looking forward to games. Some are hoping for a 1-1 draw if we are lucky on Sunday.

I am genuinely excited by the squad and the season ahead. We still have Rash and McTom to come back I to this, we are going to be very dangerous all season.

I think some posters want to watch the City/ Chelsea style domination of the ball. With this squad I see more fast transitions and goals breaking with speed. I also prefer that style of football.

I know what you are asking. I am not trying put myself above anyone. I think anticipating success and seeing the good in a poor performance translating to more enjoyment than compared to anticipating gloom sackings and problems.


16.) 18 Sep 2021 17:01:01
I get ya DB.
I hate what ole has done and turned us into and they way he approaches games particularly when adversity strikes.


17.) 18 Sep 2021 21:32:33
Reference to Shappy's post above. If that's the case then Ole is a fraud and a sell out. Having been coached by Sir Alex, I would expect him to be ambitious and not settle for second best, but it looks like Ole is also aware that all he has to do is achieve the bare minimum and his job is safe which is just pathetic.


18.) 18 Sep 2021 21:49:30
I will feel sorry for you DB when none of that comes to fruition but there's always next season right.


19.) 18 Sep 2021 23:03:14
No need to feel sorry for me Love, but thank buddy :)

I'm all smiles and grins over here in happy land. I think the nurses doubled my dose, or something!

I wish Dan James well. He's not United quality but then he's not alone in that category at all. One thing we can't fault is his effort and desire.

Think there's a good player in there with a too coach/ manager he can improve and do well for Leeds. Was never going to get that improvement staying with us.

Looks like we've settled for the squad we have so it's another 12 months of McFred, shame as I think we could have had a go at the top 3 with a quality CM now.

Ran his balls off for the shirt. Knew he had to make up in work rate what he lacked in other departments. Good move for him. Hell of an education he's going to have in a short career. Good luck to him.


2.) 31 Aug 2021 18:43:00
He will do well there.


3.) 31 Aug 2021 18:47:06
To improve, you have to play. Who was he going to get in ahead of? Good move all round. Seems a lovely lad, and worked his socks off, and getting his debut and then scoring, just after his father died, was a real lump in the throat moment. But with all the training in the world I don't think he was ever going to be a player for us if we have serious ambitions to win stuff. I hope does well and proves me wrong, but I just can't see it.


4.) 31 Aug 2021 20:59:29
He was purchased by Ole, so why was he brought in the first place?


5.) 31 Aug 2021 21:27:57
No idea, fella.

15 mill punt and doubled our money. Not the worst business I've ever seen.

When you see that list of 15 first team players who could be gone it really highlights how terrible this squad is. Literally everyone of them are p. poor. Liverpool or city wouldn’t touch one.

Gds show me a comment anyone made that we “can’t win the league because we drew on sunday “

Anyone with a view like mine these we can’t win the league is based on the team, the coaching and the manager. 8 years without one if the big trophies.

Do you think Ole is anywhere near as good a manager as klopp, pep or touchel? If not why was he appointed?

Gaza’s, your calling Sancho Workd Class? Really? Potentially one day yeh but now? No chance, he’s not even prem proven and can’t get a game for England.

You don’t have post some rubbish. Has anyone here said we’re doomed based on the first two games of the season? Your one of these fans that had accepted mediocrity unfortunately. Answer me one question, do you think Ole can win the league with this side? If the answer is no then you agree either the team or the manager needs improving on. I’m my opinion it’s both.

And in his interview he said again “trophies aren’t the be-all and end-all”, where in fact it’s exactly what his job was to do. Glad he’s gone. Wish him well.
