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
well said stand-United.

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

3.) 09 Jul 2017 19:42:06
lets just take a moment to remember that overhead kick against City.

4.) 09 Jul 2017 20:28:36

14 Feb 2021 16:32:57
More turgid football dished up. What exactly is the game plan, the tactics, the structure to our play? I don't see any patten of play or style.

All we do every game is go out and hope for a moment of magic or a pen to win the game. There is no coached style of play. It's pathetic. No just 2 wins from last 7 prem games.

Lindelof and Maguire are a laughing stock. Absolute fairies the pair of them. Martial offering nothing, Rashford really testing my patience.

Still a squad of bang average players with a completely clueless and incompetent manager.


1.) 14 Feb 2021 16:48:57
Stand we think alike. Martial is like playing with 10 men. The 2 at the back are a joke. Rashford tries to make these fast runs and ends up losing the ball then when he is in a good position he hits it straight at the keeper. Makes bad decisions.
It will be the very same next season if ole is there. The worry for me is will Bruno get fed up of the same thing every week.

2.) 14 Feb 2021 16:53:38
Shame the manager wasn’t backed in the summer transfer window. We could have had Sean Longstaff running the midfield for us.

3.) 14 Feb 2021 17:29:22
You couldn't blame Bruno if he did get fed up and tempted when a big contract is waived under his nose by the likes of Barcelona or Madrid. He must be up there with the best in the world right now and he's surrounded be incompetent clowns.



30 Jan 2021 21:02:51
Dross. That is all.


1.) 30 Jan 2021 22:03:07
It’s been a poor couple of games, very disappointing but Ole must break this cycle of taking us on a good run followed by a poor one.

Our next four league games are Southampton, Everton, West Brom then Newcastle. It’s time to look forward not back.

If we can’t win those games you can forget a title challenge and we’ll be back in a dog fight for top 4!

2.) 30 Jan 2021 22:16:22
Southampton and Everton clearly saving their big performances for us 😉🤣.

3.) 31 Jan 2021 00:39:44
now the downward run starts. a very good manager with the blips other teams have had with this squad could of had us with a good points advantage now. gds you said it on the discussions page a few weeks ago. not making it up or malace intended it just made me laugh mate.

4.) 31 Jan 2021 00:42:47
It was good while it lasted.

5.) 31 Jan 2021 02:16:20
We are not in a title challenge.

We are so boring to watch. Slow, no balls to go for it and take risks.

6.) 31 Jan 2021 12:18:32

I definitely did not say it pal, you’re getting me confused with someone else I assume. I have checked my posts and I 100% didn’t say it or think it.



27 Jan 2021 22:13:55
That was absolute garbage. A few of you have been getting carrried away with how we're playing, I've felt uneasy in many many games this season, we've had a lot of scrappy or lucky wins, this result has been coming.

The back 5 are a calamity, the defending for the second goal especially was literally pathetic, toe poke clearances 10 years, static defenders, abysmal.

The front 4 including Bruno in that have been terrible for some time. Rashford has been off it for weeks, he's getting too destructed with being a hero off the pitch, Martial is one of the laziest forward I've ever seen at United, Greenwood has been sh*te all season.

This result genuinely hasn't shocked me, it's been on the cards. With Arsenal, Southampton and Everton coming up we could be miles off city by a week from now.


1.) 27 Jan 2021 22:41:19
Or we could win all 3 and be closer than you think, it’s a weird season and it’s our first defeat since early November. Not good enough tonight, not sure anyone has particularly been getting carried away, people are allowed to enjoy being top of the league and winning lost of games quite rightly but everyone is aware of our limitations.

2.) 27 Jan 2021 23:48:12
Gds, I don’t think some are aware mate. We’ve papered over a lot of cracks recently, more often than not it’s a bit of magic from a Bruno goal or assist that gets us out of jail, tonight he couldn’t produce so neither do we. Tonight was turkey abysmal, the lack of desire to win the ball back and defend really was worrying.

3.) 28 Jan 2021 01:12:01
To be honest, maybe we needed a loss to remind the players/ fans that we are not “back” yet and there is still work to be done. 13 games unbeaten is still an achievement, But the key now is the reaction for the arsenal game on Saturday and making sure that this one loss doesn’t turn into a 3 or 4 game slump.

4.) 28 Jan 2021 01:53:29
Bit dramatic.

5.) 28 Jan 2021 05:46:49
I think greenwood wasn't rubbish today, he was getting into good positions.
And for rashford, he doesn't seem the type of guy who lacks work rate, never was. To me he's either crooked or injured and is struggling to play. Ole doesn't help and will again run him to death.

6.) 28 Jan 2021 06:37:21

You know people have been getting carried away on here, the top of the league cup was paraded a number of times.

Frankly the statistically worst ever Premier League team after half a season came to OT and gave us a lesson in shape and tactics. Embarrassing and the finger has to be pointed at Ole for this defeat. Start by asking what he sees in Martial.

7.) 28 Jan 2021 12:01:21
Red Man,

Haven't seen anyone parading this made up thing you seem to think happened, people were happy to be top of the league and were hopeful we could maintain it, that's what being a fan is about, enjoying good results.



18 Jan 2021 22:01:27
I personally think we're in a false position. We have the usual posters here who can see no wrong in what's currently going on, the fact we've closed the points gap on Liverpool and city shows progress, but does it really? It's more the fact they have both dropped off dramatically from last seasons form. As AJH said we often perform poorly and get a result, have a good 20 mins and scrape a victory, but that won't last. Ole is very negative, i find it hard to stomach at times. Why the need for two "destoyers" in CM? With Fred and McTominay in there we offer no creativity from CM. Other than Bruno where is the creativity in this side? Most our goals are scored or assisted by Bruno. So opposition sides know if they can shut Bruno down, then we're considerably less dangerous.

There was no real desire to win yesterday, no urgency when we started to control in the second half. Greenwood coming on for ten mins, Bruno, albeit having a poor games, still out best player, being taken off. Rashford has been crap for a while now. As commendable as his off field antics are, I think it's affecting his game, he's miles off the pace at the moment and looks half asses a lot of the time. Martial has been woeful too. We played arsenal earlier in the season and got schooled, City battered up a few weeks ago and even with a makeshift side we couldn't impose ourselves on Liverpool.

I'd like to see us drop one of the two CM, maybe keep Fred in, play with two of Pogba/ VDB/ Bruno (give Bruno a rest) , Greenwood a run of games. Cavani up top then ones of Rash/ Martial. We should be dominating and asserting ourselves on teams, not going there like a bottom half team expecting 30% possession and hoping for 1 or 2 chances to steal it.


1.) 18 Jan 2021 22:12:50
The table doesn’t lie mate, we aren’t in a false position.

The forwards aren’t really performing but the defence has really stepped up at the right time, you don’t go a year unbeaten away from home by luck, he’s getting something right isn’t he?

Bored of this ‘makeshift’ team rhetoric about Liverpool, they have 3 players missing pretty much and Fabinho has played CB before anyway, not like everyone else is banging 5 past them since VCD got injured, they are still a good side, their front 3 and full backs are their main threat and they all played, they are also out of form, perhaps tired just like our lads are.

2.) 18 Jan 2021 22:19:41
We haven't lost an away match in the epl for over 12 month.
We have only lost is it 3 league games in the last 12 month .
We are currently on the longest unbeating run of any club in the top 5 leagues .
We are top of the epl.

But we have just drew against Liverpool who haven't lost a game at home for 3 year?

So it must be luck and a false position .

3.) 18 Jan 2021 22:31:45
Since we got beat of arsenal on the 1st November we have played 12 league games .
Won 9
Drew 3
Scored 25
Conceded 11.
During that run of 12 games there are only 2 teams in top 9 that we haven't played .

4.) 18 Jan 2021 23:06:26
Are you both happy with that show on Sunday? Can you honestly tell me we couldn’t have been a bit more adventurous and actuslly tried to win the game? You happy to turn up not to lose rather than go to win? Because that doesn’t sit right with me and that’s exactly what he did.

5.) 18 Jan 2021 23:40:29
No it was a crap game, I've said that below. Liverpool v united often are.
But its a good point and its only 1 game .
I think if you look at us over the season or the last 12 month its hard to say it all down to luck .

6.) 18 Jan 2021 23:56:33
Do you really think all we have done over the last 12 month is scrape results and it won't last?
We have been winning games over a period of time now
Do you really think city have dropped of dramatically?
I think C.V. have affected all teams yet after 17 games city are on exactly the same amount of points as they had after 17 games last season.

7.) 19 Jan 2021 00:42:40

Ermm was I happy? Interesting one, I think in the end I was disappointed with a point but the bigger picture of a point at Anfield will do just fine and I’m in a way happy to be disappointed that we only took a point.

I agree fully that we should be taking the game to teams more, especially home games against the poorer sides, get them won early and rest players, but it’s never quite as easy as that. I don’t see much wrong with being defensively sound against a good side away from home and being very very close to getting the winner.

Quick point, do you remember the game O’Shea scored the winner at Anfield? We set up that day to be tight at the back and hit them on the break, we were poor going forward but we somehow managed to win the game and everyone said how great it was and SAF is amazing. Pogba scores his chance (which he should have imo) and we win 1-0. This whole narrative about united always going out to attack in games and we should be tactically naive because this isn’t the united way is getting a little silly. Fergie approached plenty of big away games in the exact same way.



17 Jan 2021 18:26:22
Feels like a missed opportunity. The weakest Liverpool side in years abd we didn't really go for it. The front 3 really need to sort themselves out, Rashford has been poor for a while, really poor. Martial too. Bruno was poor too, he's probably nakard. Greenwood should have come on far sooner and the whole team push for a winner. Felt we were happy with a draw from the first minute.


1.) 17 Jan 2021 18:35:20
I taught rashford in particular was very poor. the amount of times he was just jogging around and not closing down was very worrying to see.

2.) 17 Jan 2021 18:38:27
Time for Van de Beek and Cavani to have a run in the starting 11 I think. Greenwood should get a nod ahead of Martial too. Martial and Rashford haven’t been up to it for a while. Bruno just looks shot due to amount of games played.
Well done Luke Shaw though, very good performance. Lindelof and Maguire were solid enough too.

3.) 17 Jan 2021 18:41:27
Take 0-0 and move on all day long.

4.) 17 Jan 2021 18:43:59
Another bottle job performance. Rashford absolutely disgusting performance should be dropped. Thought Luke Shaw was outstanding.

5.) 17 Jan 2021 18:48:14
Rashford? Did you watch Bruno?

6.) 17 Jan 2021 18:50:48
Exactly Blackpool. Bottled opportunity to go 6 clear .

7.) 17 Jan 2021 18:55:21
Rashford is playing bad for some time now. Sure, he can make runs and score here and there, but his selfish play is out of this world. And that keeps happening every single game. I was surprised Rashford wasnt subbed instead of Martial.

8.) 17 Jan 2021 19:00:21
Yeah, because Martial was playing so well. Worst player on the pitch was Bruno by a mile.

If Bruno or Pogba had scored at the end we would be hailing it as a great result but because they didn’t, it was a bottle job apparently.

9.) 17 Jan 2021 19:13:49
You are very defensive of Rashford AJH, several players were poor yes, but Rashford has looked poor a lot recently. It is allowed to criticise him, he doesn't get a free pass.

10.) 17 Jan 2021 19:49:11
Thought the back 4 and McFred played very well. Luke Shaw in particular was superb but also Harry McGuire, who is almost universally lambasted on here, was very good against a small skilled and pacy attack - his supposed nemesis.

Lindelof came back in and was assured - well done Ole. Big decision to play this back 4 and was the right decision.

I thought we had the best of the chances. But got to be happy with a draw.

I felt thiago looked a fantastic player in midfield - pure class at times. The two make shift CBs for Liverpool did well.

11.) 17 Jan 2021 19:51:22
AJH Rashford by far the worst player on the pitch by a country mile and not for the first time. He looks disinterested. Yes Bruno was poor but at least he shows willing unlike Rashford and Martial.

12.) 17 Jan 2021 20:14:35
Blackpool? Rashford and Martial are both bang out- of form, but the worst player on the pitch was Bruno by a mile Al either he has credit in the bank.

We are not firing up front and that is going to hurt us if it doesn't get fixed. Martial has ways been very patchy, but Rashford and Greenwood are also struggling. That leaves us very short up top.

13.) 17 Jan 2021 20:16:48
Ajh sorry but Rashford been this way for weeks now. Bruno was poor but his attitude was fine, Rashford looked half assed a lot of the game and has done for a while. Him and martial have been woeful at times and it’s time Greenwood gets a sustained run in the side again. We had a chance to put daylight between us and Liverpool but we looked happy with the draw from the off.

14.) 17 Jan 2021 20:16:54
I think it is time to drop Rashford, okay Greenwood on the left, Martial on the right and Cavani up top.
Pogba and Bruno were poor. I think VDB needs a run in the team.

It be abit to early but, i can't help think that without the fans at Anfield that Diallo from the bench might have had a positive impact.

Alas, I felt that if we had pushed Liverpool we might have got more than a point.

Greenwood and VDB should have quickly followed Cavani onto the pitch. Finally, Bailly should have played. Lindelof played well but Bailly brings confidence to the back 4.

15.) 17 Jan 2021 21:01:21
I thought Pogba had another good game.

16.) 17 Jan 2021 21:13:06
I’d go to up top cavani and greenwood. Donny needs a game as Bruno looks jaded. Shaw lindelof Maguire and pogba were good today.

17.) 17 Jan 2021 21:19:02
I also think bruno was the worst player on the pitch today. Rashford was poor and wasteful but he constantly kept making runs and trying to force something, on another day he would be through on goal.

18.) 17 Jan 2021 21:39:48
Rash and martial have both been better than greenwood. Another example of if you don't play you hsvd z great game.

19.) 17 Jan 2021 22:20:52
Jred martial and rashford are starting. Greenwood isn't.
Rash and martial should not start the next game. They haven't done enough lately. So they need to sit out the next game but the manag3has his favourites.

20.) 18 Jan 2021 00:08:16
Ridiculous comment Jred. Greenwood has had ten mins here and there. How can he find his form like that. Rashford and Martial have both been poor for a while so why not give Greenwood 3/ 4 consecutive games in place is either of them and see if he can get back to last seasons performances?

Simon, Rashford was making runs yeh, shame he couldn’t time them. Was offside about 3 thousand times first half. Also so greedy at times trying to do it all himself and ignore anyone in space.

21.) 18 Jan 2021 09:00:31
Greenwood is massively out of sorts on and off the pitch . There has been a reason he isn't starting.

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.

And some people still want to make excuses for the loss. What’s toxic is the attitude of a lot of the players. Did you see the lack of desire in the players closing people down? This is the worst side in premier league history potentially, and we turned up like we thought it would be a breeze. The team selection was poor, our players were downright atrocious, it’s ok to lose when you give everything and get beat by a better side on the day, it’s not ok when they can’t be arsed to jog to close down players. It was a shambolic performance from players and manager . Our manager blames it’s a weird world this year rather than he picked the wrong team and made the wrong in game decisions.
