Hi Eds - Just wondering if Utd are still interested in Carlos Soler and if you can shed any light on a potential deal?

The Beast

{Ed002's Note - There is interest but Valencia are not keen to sell.}

1.) 20 Mar 2018 08:01:42
Ed002, awhile back there was reports United was interested in another Valencia player, Jose Gaya. Is there any interest there is was it just click bait?

{Ed002's Note - JM was interested when he was at Chelsea, but I gues MU might add him to the list of LBs they are interested in.}

2.) 20 Mar 2018 17:55:07
Ed002, if you don't mind who is on that list of LB's and will Shaw move on in the summer? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed - if Mourinho were to leave maybe Shaw will stay but right now he wants him gone and would like one of the following:
Danny Rose (LB)
Aaron Martin (LB)
Alex Sandro (LB) - I would strike him from the list now but don't be surprised if he reappears - it all depends on a player at another club
Philipp Max (LB)}

3.) 20 Mar 2018 17:56:26
Cheers Ed.

4.) 20 Mar 2018 19:16:36
Cheers Ed.

5.) 20 Mar 2018 19:31:12
I suspect that Philipp Max will end up at Bayern Munich if Alaba leaves. Ironically he looks like a really good left back. Just the kind I would like to see brought in. Young, talented and hungry with loads of potential.

6.) 21 Mar 2018 04:31:26
Ed2 are united looking at sessengon.

{Ed002's Note - there was interest when JM was at another side.}

7.) 21 Mar 2018 12:06:37
Huggy, allegedly Shaw is quite hungry, too :)



21 Feb 2018 23:45:43
I'm reading a lot of people justifying that pathetic performance. SAF played like this in Europe, Sevilla are tough at home, no easy games at this stage of the competition.

The thing is we play like this whenever we come up against a half decent team. Incidentally Moyes took us away in Europe and we played some great stuff, remember the guy that had no European experience?

Sevilla are not up to much, but we were lucky to escape with a draw tonight however you want to dress it up. They will be very dangerous at OT, far more dangerous than we were tonight.

Maybe it was like this sometimes under SAF, but only "SOMETIMES" with Jose it's every time. If we go out to Sevilla, it's because we didn't play to win tonight.

It would be nice to not read BS excuses to justify this rubbish we are subjected to almost every week. Maybe my drum is getting worn out, but the excuse bank is surely out of coin by now. It's just not good enough, we put up with a rubbish Europa League campaign to qualify for this by the skin of our teeth and then put in these types of performances! WTFP?

The Beast

1.) 21 Feb 2018 23:57:48
How many games did Moyes do us proud in Europe? Was it just the Leverkusen game or . No one is saying Jose is producing exceptional football bit my god the hyperbole in here is ridiculous.

2.) 21 Feb 2018 23:59:13
Goos post Beast and i reckon we houdlve gone for the kill today as i hope but Jose played it safe which is quite sad considering how poor Sevilla were today.

The players look scared to try something exciting ncase it doesn't work and jose gets angry.

They are all under strict rules by the looks of it.

3.) 22 Feb 2018 00:20:46
Made attacking substitutions the team just didn't click going forward.

4.) 22 Feb 2018 01:32:09
Weren't they like for like subs (Rashford/ Martial for Sanchez/ Mata)? It's not clicking because we attack with 3 men maximum, often just 2 - we have forgotten how to attack as a team as it seems our main focus is on keeping teams out, not making them keep us out.

It's anti-Utd and it isn't hyperbole if it happens virtually every time we play a team that isn't prepared to curl up and die.

5.) 22 Feb 2018 10:10:12
Couldn’t agree more beast. Went away yet again not to get beaten rather than trying to take the game to them. Nobody here can tell me man for man Sevilla are a better side than us, so why not attack them, why be happy with a bore draw? Anyone who things a nil nil is a good away score line is mistaken. A score draw not too bad, but a nil nil means we now have to win the return leg. Score draw and we’re out. Pathetic performance once again last night, nothing is inproving.

6.) 22 Feb 2018 11:44:57
Rubbish europa league campaign? You mean the one we won? Oh no we won a trophy but we didn't win it in this specific way that makes me happy. Are you aware of how spoilt you sound. You know this is why fans of other clubs hate us - a huge amount of us have got too used to success. We have to be practical we are still in a rebuilding phase. Yes a lot of money has been spent but the team needed and needs a lot of work. Short termism and harking back to the good old days do not benefit the club.

7.) 22 Feb 2018 12:56:33
Beast, you called it absolutely right. If De Gea hadn't made unbelievable saves, we will be looking at a 2 or 3 nil scoreline. I hate the passionless, clueless displays. I hate the lack of cohesion in the team. This result is not a good result, one goal for Seville and we have to score two. Even if we score first, we will still be extremely nervous.
I would say it is advantage Seville.
But the most ridiculous post i'd the one from 12daysofhemida. "A huge amount of us have got used to success", "We have to be practical we are still in a rebuilding phase", "Short termism and harking back to the good old days do not benefit the club". These are exactly the type of comments that drive me potty. How could you get too used to success? So shall we have a few years of rubbish performances as we don't want to be to used to success? Utter tripe. Then he mentions we are still rebuilding, we have been rebuilding for five years. A good business doesn't allow its performance to deteriorate, then start rebuilding. All the top clubs are in a constant state of rebuilding. Harking back to the old times? History is what defines you, and history is what you learn from and improve. So when you talk about harking back to the old times, you're basically telling us that we might as well throw away our history.
If you allow standards to drop and mediocrity to set in, then we might as well pack our bags and go home. That's not the philosophy of the club I've supported for over 50 years. we were built on attacking entertaining football with all the right values. Unfortunately, we are losing these values.

8.) 22 Feb 2018 15:03:38
Attack x3 you'd make a fine spin doctor.

"So shall we have a few years of rubbish performances as we don't want to be to used to success? "

The few years of rubbish performances HAPPENED under Moyes and LVG. Alongside that were rubbish results. No one was happy, myself included. Now Jose has improved RESULTS a hell of a lot. The performances (last night included) are still often poor. You cannot expect results and performances to be improved when the squad is substandard for a title tilt. Jose is improving us.

"we have been rebuilding for five years. "

Yes, that's just how bad we got.

"A good business doesn't allow its performance to deteriorate, then start rebuilding. "

I agree, but that is exactly what the club allowed to happen. Expecting five years of stagnation to be corrected in two years is unrealistic.

"History is what defines you, and history is what you learn from and improve. "

Once again we agree. history has shown us that sticking by a manager when we fans are calling for his head can be beneficial. Can you imagine what would have happened if the fans had been listened to with Fergie? Also whilst we're talking about history, here's one from Fergie, "Attack wins you games, defence wins you leagues. " I think that is what Mourinho is trying to do.

"So when you talk about harking back to the old times, you're basically telling us that we might as well throw away our history. "

Er. no. Just no. I can't even think of a witty, relevant or scathing retort to that. Sorry.

"If you allow standards to drop and mediocrity to set in, then we might as well pack our bags and go home. That's not the philosophy of the club I've supported for over 50 years. we were built on attacking entertaining football with all the right values. Unfortunately, we are losing these values. "

Let me see if I can do your putting words in other people's mouth shtick. so if we don't play well and win you we should all stop supporting Utd? Utter tripe, piddle and tomfoolery.

We weren't built on attacking entertaining football it's a philosophy we have played more often than not since the days of Busby. A style of play that I love and miss, but since Ferguson left that philosophy has been left behind, through poor appointments, mismanagement and NOW necessity. Our defence isn't up to task and so we need to play more defensively.

Whilst having a nosy around the internet, I found this description of Newton Heath in their first season. "Tough, diligent men who formed a powerful side. " Sounds a lot like a Mourinho side. Maybe we were built on stoic defending first, entertaining football second (like all good teams) .

9.) 22 Feb 2018 18:22:17
Great post 12 days.
Beast the performances are poor but its the players not the manager.
How many top class players in our squad?
Not even top class on the european stage top class in epl. Jose performing minor miricle to keep them competitive imo.

10.) 22 Feb 2018 20:34:16
Great posts 12 days. As good as I've ever seen on here to be honest. Great way of debating.

11.) 22 Feb 2018 22:10:35
Oh come on now, it's ridiculous. People are still plugging their same view week in week out.

The fact is, there are some very good and some not so good players in the squad. It's the same for the rest of the top 6 or so teams. It's the manager's job to get the best out of them.

If your idea of getting the best of them is by holding the better players back to set up defensively and grind out results, then we'll agree that Mourinho is doing well. If your idea of an attacking, exciting and progressive style of football is the way forward, then he's not the right man.



13 Jan 2017 19:14:26
Hopefully this Costa incident is the trigger for the much needed Chelsea collapse. Win on Sunday and everyone will be scared that we are coming for them.

The Beast

{Ed025's Note - my fear beast is that they may make a move for lukaku now, he would jump at the chance imo mate..

1.) 13 Jan 2017 20:52:24
We, I really don't rate Lukaku, I know he can sometimes bully CBs and score dramatic goals but generally he looks like a fat lump blundering around. Just my view of course.

{Ed025's Note - thats very nasty and short sighted of you AJH...but very true.. :)

2.) 13 Jan 2017 22:07:38

4.) 14 Jan 2017 03:46:48
If costa is sold or even just has a falling out with conte, we really need to beat liverpool, as i was hoping and i think most utd fans will agree, if we aren't able to win the league it is better if chelsea do it rather than one of city or liverpool.

5.) 14 Jan 2017 11:16:54
Lukaku is perfect for Chelsea's system but he's no Diego Costa. I can't see them letting him go this January though although a summer deal makes sense.

6.) 14 Jan 2017 12:13:23
I know Costa is expensive but £80 million for a coffee is just ridiculous.

7.) 14 Jan 2017 14:26:04
I'm not sure about timing but I read that the Chinese are going to be clamping down big time on the money being spent by their clubs, as a means of capital controls (just doing it with Bitcoin now) . So maybe there is a major timing factor involved, possibly a one time opportunity for the start of their new season.

Possibly why the amounts in question seem so desperate and why Costa is trying to force a move now. Just speculating of course.

8.) 14 Jan 2017 19:56:59
Costa isn't trying to force his way out.

9.) 15 Jan 2017 01:30:24
i hope costa stays where he is (and stops scoring) because if he leaves they might bid for moussa dembele of celtic.

10.) 15 Jan 2017 13:36:29
hmm Jackson, who knows what to believe. Quite a coincidence we were only talking of something like this the other day. That said you still smashed Leicester and have a £30m striker rotting on the bench, so still need a few more spanners in the works to give us a sniff.

11.) 16 Jan 2017 19:38:40
Hope he stays. He's saved my dream team this season.



01 Jul 2016 17:29:56
I just read that Neymar signs a 5 year deal, but his buyout clause rises the further he gets into his contract, this seems odd to me is it odd?

It's almost as if they are telling clubs to come and get him now if they are interested.

Does anybody know what his buyout was prior to the new contract? It's now £167m for the first year, rising to 186m 2nd year and then £209 for the third), on the Beeb.

The Beast

1.) 01 Jul 2016 18:07:30
Not sure but this deal is pretty sensible from barca, with teams like palace throwing £30m at Marseille for that Belgian lad who knows how much players will be going for in 5 years, it's gone even more ridiculous this year.

2.) 01 Jul 2016 18:08:46
Beast I don't know enough about buy out clauses but it makes great sense for the owners as under normal circumstances the players value decreases as his contact runs down. It also means that they will be in no rush to Renew and give him another rise in order to uphold his value.

3.) 01 Jul 2016 19:34:13
Great points guys, hadn't even considered that in my haste.



10 Jul 2015 16:38:30
Hi Ed's - I am a regular contributor to the site as you may know. Several people ask about a fantasy football league each year and I have been part of one for the past 4/5 years, I can vouch for the credibility of it. I didn't want to post on the website without your permission first, this is what I want to post, do you mind?

"I am part of a dream team league, ran by a chap called Andy. I have done this for the past 4+years and it works a treat. You pay £50 upfront and each month there is a prize for manager of the month, the remaining money goes into a pot for the top 3 managers of the year - all registration fees are redistributed to winning managers. I have personally won a few managers of the month and have been paid appropriately. This is just a group of guys coming together and nothing formal/company orchestrated, so if you want to join the league the code is 90970-25762 (it is the Fantasy Premier League). Andy will provide you with his acct details if you join and over recent seasons we have had over 50 people in the league – it was primarily a group of friends but I have asked him if he would mind me opening it up to my “banter buddies” and he has no problem so long as it causes him no issues"

The Beast

{Ed002's Note - Sure, no problem.}

1.) 10 Jul 2015 17:24:08
Super Beast, Might join you on that .

2.) 10 Jul 2015 19:35:39
Now I'm confused yesterday someone was going to setup a FF competition for the lads all here at no cost, I think that £50 is a tad steep especially when in euros it's 70 or more for your one Beast.

Now I'm not a tight git but I try play the FF gig and more times than not forget to change players etc, as I get caught up in stuff at home or within family homes doing repairs etc so miss a lot of the tactical changes lol!!

If we were to set up a MUFC page FF competition and at a cost of €20/25 I would enter it no problem

3.) 10 Jul 2015 20:02:09
Pyramid Scheme!

4.) 10 Jul 2015 23:10:25
We had one for free last season, not sure who set it up but we had over 70 people in it from this website.

The one I am talking about has cash aspects attached so obviously won't be for everyone. I throw in £50 with this guys league because if you win a manager of the month its normally £80-£100, then £1k or so to overall winner.

Horses for courses, I just put it out there as some people were asking and I have always been paid on time.

A pub I was in yesterday were showing Shearer's goals - they spent a while on Utd/ Newcastle. The amount of leaders we had and what I would call 'serious' men on the pitch back in 99:

Schmeichel, G. Neville, Stam, Keane, Sheringham - as stand outs.

But then you had the likes of Scholes, OGS, Irwin, Butt, Beckham, Cruyff, Phil Neville, Berg, Johnsen, van der Gouw and others around. All of these in one way or another went on to be captains, managers or people you would sit up straight to listen to - or at least showed a clear intelligence and sincerity about their football and in life. Some are arguable, but you need men to be led as well.

Now we have next to nothing to look at, the bar of leadership at our club now would not break into my second or third string of that 99 team. We lack a seriousness, an accountability to our behavior. Until we sign a group of real men, that can convert the mindset of the many at the club, we will continue to flounder.

Rotten apples have corrupted the barrel for too many years, we need to empty the barrel before we add more apples to it.

We have lots of leaders Beast. Lingard and Pogba have loads of followers on Twitter, so by definition they must be leaders!



06 May 2019 17:31:37
How can Young (Captain), say 'there was nothing wrong with the effort or attitude'?

That sums us up, the standards have slipped so slow, so quickly that it's beyond a joke.

If it's not attitude or effort then it's the ability of the players or the manager. Since we have played this way with 4 different managers it must be the ability and the cliques around the club, which zap the good habits new signings and youth players have ingrained. Until we rip everything out and start again we are on a hiding to nothing.

Sell every last one of the first team. Build a brand new team from scratch and fill with youth - too much player power with players that think social media is more important.

Actually, Herrera is the only one I'd keep and we have let his contract run down. Says it all.

The Beast

1.) 06 May 2019 17:56:19
Good to see you back beast, don't agree with many of your posts but still enjoy to read them.

2.) 06 May 2019 18:04:50
If you noticed yesterday Lindelof was walking around talking to players, particularly Chong, whilst Young just there hands on hips. Probably thinking about his next mealy mouthed response. Captain? Couldn't run a bath.

3.) 06 May 2019 18:26:40
The lack of proper structure is the root cause of all our problems.
And the current squad does not have any leaders.
It was good to see Lindelof motivating the players after we conceded.



24 Apr 2019 18:16:47
Hopefully Sanchez starts tonight and the lads pass the ball to him. Looked better before his recent injury, but the 'cool gang' wouldn't play it to him when in space.

Could be the ideal game to turn his career around, he will work and deserves a chance after the fiasco of last weekend. The guys got a point to prove, hopefully Ole gives him a shot.

The Beast

1.) 24 Apr 2019 18:31:49
Team has been leaked and its something like this

DeGea, Darmian, Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw, Young, Fred, Perera, Pogba, Lingard abd Rashford.

Not very convinving if that is true!

2.) 24 Apr 2019 18:44:30
I hope this is wrong, but thanks Singh - I'd expect no more than 30% possession with that lot, I don't see how we will keep the ball in their half - scary that it's come to this.



23 Dec 2018 13:30:23
Great result, even better performance. I don't want to get ahead of myself, but it does show that simply telling the players to enjoy themselves and play with attacking intent and energy, is often all that is needed.

There will be many hard games to come, but seeing the weight lifted from so many of the lads was nice to see.

I'm excited to watch the next game as I am expecting free-flowing attacking football, more expectation than hope for once!

Rival fans will be worried again already.

The Beast

1.) 23 Dec 2018 14:40:57
Mourinho's style seems to be to heap pressure on the players, this eventually seems to cause the players to reach a breaking point where the pressure, expectation and demands seems to crush them and they stop enjoying their football. That works at some clubs. However, our club has always been about expressing yourself, and playing exciting football. Jose's sort of style just doesn't sit well with our players, it doesn't sit well with our fans and it doesn't align with our history.

We are just a better team when we attack, we need to remember this and play to our strengths. It really is that simple.

2.) 23 Dec 2018 15:10:42

5.) 23 Dec 2018 16:15:41
Stoner my friend, remind me when you last won the League, or anything of note really. Good start under Emery but a long way to go. You can protest all you like but yesterday was a throwback to the real United. One game, but let’s see what happens next eh?

6.) 23 Dec 2018 16:23:08
Stoner, Arsenal have won 3 FA cups since United last won the league, United have won 1 FA cup, 1 League cup and the Europa League. So pretty even on paper. Also considering it is 14 years and counting since Arsenal's last league title, I consider you laughing at us for 5 years to be rather amusing.

Also the fact you are on the United page the day after the best result and performance from a United side in 5 years proves the point that we have made you sit up and take notice, which is the first step to making you worry about us again. Proving Beasts point. Thanks for that. lol.

7.) 23 Dec 2018 19:06:20

It’s not about what we have or haven’t won, it’s not about whether Emery is going to be a good fit or work wonders it’s about the comedic posts on here after what is highly likely another false dawn.

Shappy you need to pop over to the Arsenal page, I give you pelters over there every week. It’s not what Arsenal may win or have won fella it’s all about what you’re not going to win and the the particular two teams most likely to win.

But thanks for the effort fella, CTR has clearly taught you well. 😂😂😂.

8.) 23 Dec 2018 19:21:58
It's not about what we have or haven't won. That's convenient.

9.) 23 Dec 2018 19:57:22
Noucamp, what can I say mate, it’s not my fault, if even as a cop, you don’t get it.

Your team is utter pants, it has been 5 long years in the making to get it that bad and thus you have become the gift that just keeps giving.

The added bonus is that if you finally try to turn the corner next season you will be taking the Spuds manager. 😂.

10.) 23 Dec 2018 20:08:07
Oh silly me, I forgot I was dealing with an Arsenal fan. With Wenger over the last 10-12 years it's never been about winning trophies, is it playing style or enjoying your team? I don't remember now. But it certainly wasn't about winning.

Oh yeah, now I remember. It's about the Arsenal fan speciality. It's not about your team beating us to a title, it's about you glorifying in another team beating us to a title.

I forgot how far Arsenal had fallen, where they cheer on teams finishing higher than them as long as that team stops us from winning. I suppose that made more sense when half the Arsenal team played for the blue half of Manchester.

Emery has lifted your team, how far he can take them I'm not sure. But he has you competing for the forth place trophy again. So I can understand the excitement from you Gunners.

11.) 23 Dec 2018 21:12:26

Seriously mate, try and get a grip, you have had 5 years of misery, it doesn’t matter if it’s an Arsenal, Liverpool, City, Chelsea, Spurs, Everton or a fan of any other team telling you.

You can cite what you like about who won what and when but because you were collectively such odious people when you were winning everyone is revelling in your failing.

How you treat others on the way up is how you get treated on the way down, suck it up mate and get over yourself. 🙄.

12.) 23 Dec 2018 21:58:22
Stoner by name.

13.) 23 Dec 2018 22:52:33
Stoner, you're hilarious if you expect us to swallow that.
Firstly if you truly felt that you should treat people a certain way on your way up then why be a hypocrite and while Arsenal are having a better season go to opposition fans and attempt to send them pelters? So either you don't believe that, your a damn fool, or more likely your trying to cover your exposed arse.

Secondly, if it is about "revelling" in our misery then where have you been all season? We have been miserable for 16+ games yet you could not be seen. Then bam, we have one good performance and your straight on here. Don't try and kid yourself, it has nothing to do with revelling in our misery. Your concerned that after just one good performance we could be on the road back. So to make yourself feel better you feel the need to come on here and try and burst our bubble.

The funny thing is, that the return of opposition fans on here is the first real sign that we might be on our way back. If Ole can worry you that much in one performance that shows how little faith you have in your team and how concerned you are about ours.

So cheers, your return has no doubt put even bigger smiles on the faces of my fellow United supporters. Thanks for that.

I’m the one kidding myself, hilarious. So this is the very first great result or performance or shall I say false dawn you’ve had in 5 whole years? Yeah right of course it is.

Like I said I’m literally kacking myself at how fabulous you’ve become, that as per usual Smalling, Jones, Valencia, Mata, Young, Darmian, Shaw, Fellaini, Herrera, Fred, Rojo, Lukaku, Lingard, Martial and the show pony are going to be winning titles and Champions league finals within the week.

Beasts comment was just to funny to simply pass by. So have a word with yourself fella. 😂😂😂.

16.) 24 Dec 2018 10:37:57
Stoner, the first rule of losing an argument is change the argument.

Which you are doing with every new reply.

No one has said we are ready to win the league ect ect.

Just that for the first time in 5 years we witnessed a true United performance. Pace, passion and attacking intent. Was it perfect? No, but it was the best we have played in 5 years. Nearly everyone is saying let's wait and see.

But I promise you one thing, even with the clear deficiencies in our squad not a single United supporter would swap squads with Arsenal.

So I can understand your concern, we have a better squad, more money to invest further and have started to play close to our potential.

Spurs are doing well in Europe as well, I'm sure that hurts too. Lol.

17.) 24 Dec 2018 11:53:58
Well said shappy. Stoner I sometimes pop on the arsenal page and all you do is talk about united. Obsessed much? 😂 granted we ain’t great at the moment but we will improve and get better. Merry Xmas to you mate and see you at the emirates next year 😉.

18.) 24 Dec 2018 12:13:47
No Shappy, the first rule of losing an argument is to pretend you’ve won it. Nice try fella and I would have De Gea and Rashford from your squad and that’s it.

Park I say it how I see it, I don’t butter up any shizzle, including how good or bad Arsenal may be.

See you next year fella, looking forward to it as always.

Is that how you win your arguments?

That sounds more like delusion to me.

Each to their own. See you next year bud. Hopefully when your big enough to come on here and say well done after we beat your lot.

Remember, our poor squad who you wouldn't take anyone bar DDG and Rashford from finish above your team last year while we were playing poorly. I wonder where we would finish if we could get this squad playing well?

Stoner, put your money where your mouth is.
Tell us about Arsenal? How good are you right now?
When are you going to win the title? When are you going to win anything?

Worry about your own team and we’ll worry about United. That’s why we’re called supporters not detractors! I’ve never been to an Arsenal page because they are of no interest to me. I’m a Man United supporter.

Your old mate Merson has a nerve to say Man United should apologise. what about Arsenal’s last 14 years? Their best finish? Second. Once in 14 years.

We won the league 5 times in that period and runners up 4 times. And he thinks we should be apologising, comical.

If Ole pulls up trees then money talks and I can't see him going back to Molde (first month will tell the club a lot) . If he doesn't then the club will make the change and I imagine start serious planning soon - it's risk free because literally anybody with a smile on their face could do better with this group of players now. Unfortunately Jose is a fantastic coach but lost too many of the players imo. His style suited a different type of team and era.

I'm delighted we have hired a manager that knows the Utd way and is intelligent, young and will not be too proud to try new things and evolve. The club need to have a manager that let's the players play, we will see how good they really are over the coming months and that is great for whoever does end up coming in.

I'm optimistic and hope Ole get's the boys playing positive football, the fans and players all need to start enjoying it again.

Can we get a pool going to see when Beast turns on Ole?

I'll say 7:30pm on Saturday night when a 2-0 win at Cardiff isn't good enough.

I'm only joking mate. Welcome back to the light!

Beast turns on Ole?

Well he is a hot piece of arse. I know he turns me on.

3.) 19 Dec 2018 20:57:32
Cheers Mumbles, most optimistic I've been for an age. He needs Christmas to turn around the rot in the changing room which can be done that quick imo, so long as he is sincere and let's the players do their thing on the pitch.

Ole has the right credentials for me, I think his rawness is an asset, Danny knows what I'm talking about, lol!

I can’t agree about Solskjaer, have to respect the legend but it is a huge risk. Long term it is Pochettino for me.

5.) 20 Dec 2018 00:23:15
Poch really? You told me he had won nothing etc only a month ago.
Solskjaer isn't a risk it a short term appointment until we get the man we want .
Which will all be sorted all ready.

6.) 20 Dec 2018 06:45:34

There are risks with any manager we put in if the background structure is not there, if Mourinho can’t do it the decision is difficult. I don’t believe it was a month ago either, are you a time lord? If you go back to when LvG was in place I wanted it to be a preparation for Pep, the club had no such plan. I said then it had to be Mourinho but Pochettino was a dark horse to be considered. Now, It is a risk that he hasn’t won anything but when you take his development of young players into account together with our youth potential he has become my No1 choice.

7.) 20 Dec 2018 08:48:21
Good thing about Solskjær is that he knows both Pogba and Lingard as players pretty good. They both won the youthcup with him as manager and there could not be any better man to come in atm.
Think he could get the best out of pur strikers, and all his teams are set up to score more than the other team. The only thing is the physical aspect, cause he wants to press high and always press the ball. Could take a few games for them to sort it out, though.

If we sign De Ligt we need 3-4 other leaders to come in and rip out the bad apples. Otherwise he will be another Daley Blind, no authority so his leadership counts for zero if he is an alien walking into the corrupt nature of our dressing room.

With a few other newcomers he would be immense. Otherwise like Lindelof/ Herrera/ Mata - having the right attitude will count for nothing.

Another potential star mis-managed by our calamitous ex-managers.

I've lost count how many false dawns we have had in recent years as we have no idea how to benefit players from loan moves and no clue how to blood them properly. Such a shame.

They will have for sure. But it's hard to factor in things like future sponsorship, future signings (ie targets want more money if not in CL or say no when they would have said yes) .

I'm sure we are hemorrhaging viewers on TV across the world, that has to have a knock on effect. Takes a lifetime to build a reputation, a few years of LVG and Jose to virtually destroy it.

People are selfish. Woody will not look good sacking yet another manager (so soon after handing him a ridiculous new deal) and failing to secure top 4. Everyone will be looking out for their own personal best interests right now rather than the club or the fans.

In a decent/ honest world. Jose would have packed his bags long ago but he wants money, Woody would have admitted his mistake long ago, but he wants money. The club would have realised we are losing our soul, but they want money. The players would have upped their game, but irrespective of performance they earn and want money.

Most players nowadays know they will earn more by forcing a move than they would by doing their job. Little morals and honour left in the game now at the top end unfortunately.

I wish we could just rip out all the poison surrounding the club and just build it back from the solid foundations we have, but the world doesn't work like that. Just like in the real world with empires, they get too big, too selfish, to greedy and ultimately the empire dies and is reborn as something else. We have bad apples throughout the club, directors, management, players - we need to cull it all before it's too late.

The owners seem to give the managers free rein, that is one thing I like about them.

Too many people use the inner machinations of the club to explain away our dire performances on the pitch. Jose has players to train, world class players, he is not being told what to do on the pitch or off it (aside from shut up it seems) . So not sure how that is an excuse for what we see every game.

If its not spending money then that is a BS excuse. He has had more than almost any manager ever. Name me a manager that doesn't want more to spend?

I don't like the way the club play nor how Jose carries himself most of the time. He thinks he is bigger than the club and has little regard for his players (most of them) or the fans. We are a laughing stock, we are boring to watch and the owners whilst not ideal certainly could be a lot worse and have frankly backed him enough.

Most clubs carry debt, he has had plenty of funds and wastes it on players he doesn't play.

I said at the time it was a travesty giving this man a new contract as well. There are more heads that need to roll, but Jose's is the first if we want to get back to where we should be any time soon.

Danny have you seen how much he has spent? What players have kicked on under his guidance?

Jose is looking for excuses, Roman had enough of it and so should our owners. I'm not a fan of the way the club had changed, but ultimately we are not progressing anywhere near as much as we should be under his stewardship - look at what Newcastle, Burnley etc do with a pittance to spend. He has some of the worlds best players and can;t get anything from them, spent hundreds of million and it may as well have been chucked in the bin.

No the buck stops with Jose for me, owners shouldn't be throwing more good money after bad - but they should be decisive, no middle ground here. Either give him MORE money to waste or cut him loose.

It was a dead cat bounce. The toxic manager had gone, the players felt free and celebrated against pretty poor teams. Then they reverted to type when it became apparent Ole is good at being their friend but not so good at being their manager.

I'd love a clean out. Rip the whole thing up and start again.

Those days were hell.

We never threatened opposition and looked content to pass the ball around going nowhere. All an opponent had to do was wait for the inevitable mistake and score, knowing we had no plan B. We spent mega money on great players that looked just as bad as our current crop who are infinitely less talented.

I haven't rated any of our recent managers, but LVG was by far the worst thing to happen to our club in recent history from my perspective.

When we have a team with Mata, Young, Lingard, Rashford, Matic and Pereira playing it is going to be hard - simply not good enough for this level or the level we aim to be at.

The problem I have is that Ole saying he is working on fitness, you can't help but do that. EVERY team is working on fitness during pre-season, even pub teams work on fitness during the summer! If you have a bunch of spoiled brats bitching and moaning every step then it won't take long for them to corrupt the ones that are taking things seriously.

There has been a lot of talk by both the manager and the players since OGS took over. Not seen much delivered, just saying one thing and doing another. I can't help but fear that he has been rewarding long contracts to players that we would maybe have been better drawing a line under. Too many players have signed that were stars at their former clubs and then get 'corrupted' by whatever is going on within our club - it's a pattern.

Daniel James is standing out at the minute, I hope he has the strength of character to keep embarrassing them and doesn't succumb to peer pressure of the lazy charlatans that claim to be elite athletes.

If it's true that some of our players are moaning about a fitness regime during pre-season and we don't get them out the door, then we are in for another rough year!

Welcome mate - When you list the team like that it doesn't half look awful.

We have been crying out for a RW for eons, desperate for a CM and we need to cut loose a CB to bring in a leader back there. I also don't rate Rashford or Lukaku as strikers for our club.

A lot of work to be done over the next few weeks, but as always it relies on other clubs being willing to take some of the lads off our hands. I keep reading about new contracts being given to players that we should really be moving on if we aim to be competing with the likes of Liverpool and City. Scary times.
