Sergio Ramos rumours again 🤦‍♂️ Let's hope we aren't stupid enough to fall for this stunt, it's clearly never going to happen.


1.) 01 Feb 2021 16:01:06
Not should it even if Ramos genuinely wants to join.

2.) 04 Feb 2021 01:14:17
I think Gaitan and Shhhhhnydur will come this year.



11 Dec 2020 10:53:48
Rumours of a potential Ronaldo/ pogba swap?! Surely not? Although it does sound like a deal we would do. Full of sentimentality and marketing potential but makes very little football sense. Ps I love Ronaldo just think we need better long term planning🤷‍♂️.


1.) 11 Dec 2020 11:19:27
the club done operate on football sense.

the money it would make them means it would be a no brainier.

tbf he could still do a job up front for 2 or 3 years.

2.) 11 Dec 2020 11:20:37
CR7 is the type of player a team is built around. He’s too old for that to be viable.
I say that boat has long since sailed, be proud of what he and the club did for each other and move on.
The End.

3.) 11 Dec 2020 13:07:45
Ronaldo will demand a lot from our players.
His dedication and attitude could bring the best out of many of our players.

CR7's age of 36 is equivalent to 30 of other footballers due to the way he maintains his fitness.

4.) 11 Dec 2020 14:18:42
Will break our wage structure adn very short term. Great player, but no thank you.

5.) 11 Dec 2020 20:17:46
I would take Emile Heskey as a swap just to get rid of Pogba.

6.) 12 Dec 2020 17:13:59
I loved Ronaldo when he was here, I have admired him since he left.

But Ronaldo is our past now, and we need to focus on our future. We also need to be careful that we don't become a retirement home, a place for the big names to go for one last big pay day. Zlatan first and now Cavani, a third time and it becomes a trend.

7.) 12 Dec 2020 20:14:48

We have a wage structure?

8.) 13 Dec 2020 01:24:22
Would certainly have more of an impact and could definitely do a job for a few seasons.

{Ed0666's Note - A manager with balls and Ronaldo for 2 years would be exactly what Man United need right now.

9.) 13 Dec 2020 17:10:21
I would take him in a flash. Proven winner, great work ethic and attitude, the player of his generation, an icon. He would improve every player in the squad.

10.) 13 Dec 2020 18:34:07
And still better than anything we have in our squad.

11.) 14 Dec 2020 16:25:21
the Juve medical team tested him after recovering from C.V., he basically had the body of a 25 year old. He's got more muscle and is faster than before C.V.! C.V. is a wonder fuel I think.

12.) 14 Dec 2020 18:54:21
So a soon to be 36 year old, who while at one time was arguably the best player in the world, but has declined significantly since then. Is still better than anything we have in our squad. Yet this squad is 2 or 3 players away from winning the title?

13.) 15 Dec 2020 00:00:17
Shappy, Ronaldo is a phenom, he may have declined but he is far superior than a lot of players in our squad.

{Ed0666's Note - I think he’s far superior than anyone on you’re team

14.) 15 Dec 2020 07:54:29
Shappy, Ronaldo (and Messi) are light years ahead of any other players of this generation so yes, he probably is better. Imagine a couple of top signings and Ronaldo’s drive and mentality, the impact would be huge.

Can’t see it happening though.

15.) 15 Dec 2020 13:22:16
Yes Shappy. Once again you’re making random comparisons to suit your bias. Often two things can be true, especially when the two things you mention are completely unrelated.

If this swap deal has any chance of going through we should be doing everything to make it happen.

It’s a chance to bring in a winner who will score 20 goals a season, and at the same time remove an absolute liability from our club and let the door hit him on the back side on the way out.

It’s a no brainer.

16.) 15 Dec 2020 16:56:19
Ronaldo would transform the team. People need to stop waffling and talkin abt hia age. Ronaldo can go on until he is 38 39 easily and perform at a better level then anyone in our team.

Our main problem is Ole get rid of him and we have half our issue sorted.

17.) 16 Dec 2020 04:36:14
Do we really have to keep taking about Shappy's bias? Feels like an episode of Jerry Springer.



03 Oct 2020 18:42:10
Cavani coming on a 2 year deal apparently. will be announced soon!
make of that what you will. 🤷‍♂️.




03 Oct 2020 13:52:40
Sancho not in the Dortmund squad for today. every time the hope fades we get sucked back in 🤣 he's probably still sick but that won't stop the rumour mill for the next 2 days 🙏.


1.) 03 Oct 2020 14:00:03
It will be a bad ass coincidence for every United fan 😭😭😭.

2.) 03 Oct 2020 14:11:20
SSN reported last night that he wouldn't be playing today, so that is no surprise.



02 Oct 2020 21:30:12
Telles deal looking unlikely now also (telegraph) 🤯🤦‍♂️.


1.) 02 Oct 2020 22:40:00
looks like lvg was right then. now on to third choice.

2.) 02 Oct 2020 23:10:22
Rojo? 😂.

3.) 02 Oct 2020 23:10:38
Maybe utd will wait and sign him for free in January?

4.) 02 Oct 2020 23:15:51
Don’t think he can come for free in January, we could sign a pre contract for the summer but that’s not much use to us for this season 🤷‍♂️.

5.) 02 Oct 2020 23:29:17
at the end of the season. dose not help us this season.

Thoughts with Chrissy Smalling and his young family🙏. what a terrifying ordeal to go through. Hope they catch the **** that did it and lock them up.


{Ed077's Note - second that. 🙏🙏

1.) 16 Apr 2021 22:13:19
Ditto. Cnuts like this need sorting.



14 Apr 2021 14:43:46
So apparently our indifferent home form hasn't been down to sloppiness, arrogance or poor tactics. it's been down to the backgrounds put in the stands by the club. The players can't see each other 🤷‍♂️🤣 haven't we heard this one before?! Ole channeling his inner fergie with this one 🤣🤣.


1.) 14 Apr 2021 14:58:57
It's probably down to away sides not being intimidated by 70k fans shouting at them.

2.) 14 Apr 2021 14:59:07
It's probably down to away sides not being intimidated by 70k fans shouting at them.

3.) 14 Apr 2021 15:06:11
I saw that and can believe that it might have had some bearing. what is refreshing is that if they thought that was a factor that they looked into it and changed things.

4.) 14 Apr 2021 16:32:31
Yer man,

Totally agree, that doesn’t fit the narrative that Ole is a joke though. I noticed earlier in the season this issue and wondered if they would do something about it, I can imagine it was a problem. Not the reason why we have been poor obviously but small margins in big games can make all the difference.

5.) 14 Apr 2021 17:12:14
Bit worrying it took them over 25+ home games to notice though lol if it is an issue.

6.) 14 Apr 2021 17:40:16
Why is this only affecting the home team then?

7.) 14 Apr 2021 17:46:29
Maybe because we’re the ones that play in red?

8.) 14 Apr 2021 17:54:51
Dear me, Old Trafford has been awash with red for how many decades? But now Ole blames defeats on red banners. “We have looked into this, and there shouldn't be any reason (why home form is worse) but some of the players have mentioned that, when making that split-second decision, to look to see if your team-mate is there or not, and the red shirt, on a red background, with red seats - we have of course tried to change that, along with the anti-racism campaign, that was important that wasn't red too. ”

There is one thing changing a grey strip, but the colour around the ground? Next the first 20 rows must all wear black, no red allowed, how about cricket sightscreens instead of fans? I laugh at some of the utter nonsense he comes out with.

9.) 14 Apr 2021 18:18:12
Well he's not going to blame a lack of attacking football is he.

10.) 14 Apr 2021 18:19:26
Red Man as much as I agree with your reasoning that having red banners would not make much difference I don't think ole saying this is a bad thing. From a managerial point of view he is showing his players he listens and takes their comments on board whilst at the same time removing a possible barrier to better performance (even if you and me think it doesn't make much difference) .

11.) 14 Apr 2021 18:50:36
He said the players said it red man, literally in the quote you posted, so it’s not nonsense it’s something the players have brought up that he’s fixed, deary me.

12.) 14 Apr 2021 21:41:02
Booked, GDS

Are we really saying that after all these decades, the colour red in the stadium is causing us to lose. Then some will support Ole on this to the end of days no matter what.

13.) 14 Apr 2021 22:14:36
Are you not getting this? Over all the years there are fans in the stadium, not red coverings on the seats. Do you honestly think the whole crowd wear red shirts? The point is the coverings on the seats, which the players have mentioned to the manager and he’s fixed.

14.) 14 Apr 2021 22:21:51
And some will criticise Ole on this to the end no matter what.

15.) 14 Apr 2021 22:29:24
Just for the record I wasn’t using this as a stick to beat ole with. just found it funny and very reminiscent of fergie and the things he said.

16.) 14 Apr 2021 23:02:27
Redman no I am not saying the colour red is making us lose. What I am trying to say is by listening to his players and then actioning something based on their concerns it is more likely to foster good relations and lead to a better team dynamic. It is a good managerial decision for the team as a whole. It's more a good managing people decision than anything relating to tactics.

17.) 14 Apr 2021 23:50:44
oh dear next we will be saying i cannot see the ball. when it is kicked high because there is a white cloud in the sky.

18.) 15 Apr 2021 01:14:18
You can say that twice Shappy!

19.) 15 Apr 2021 06:24:13
I am wondering what Bruno thinks about that. Now that's a reason for Martial's poor form I guess.

Ole should be thankful and consider himself lucky that there were no fans rather than coming up with such comments which is disgraceful.

Imagine the away teams putting our colors intentionally in the background to distract our players 😢. Just getting eager to see what's coming up next from Ole.

20.) 15 Apr 2021 08:29:28
Simple change the colour of the banners to match the kit of our opposition every week. That way they won't see each other and we win 10 nil every week.
Another ole stupid quote. That's 3 in a week. Fecking clown.
He needs to know when to say nothing to the media.
Booker its poor management to discuss that publicly. If players said it privately he sorts it privately. Not mouthing off to the press to make him look stupid. He has a habit of that imo.

21.) 15 Apr 2021 09:16:19

or better select a neutral official color for the PL to use as background for all teams so that none of the them have to suffer the same fate 😉.

And as a former player himself if Ole needs to be told by his players that there are issues with the background colors or whatever then he is even more clueless.

bookedredmole, isn't it the manager's responsibility to hear out people working under them and do what's necessary. And talking about player management we all know how bad Ole is at rotating his squad.

Ole needs to stop making excuses all the time especially ones that are off the pitch and focus more with the performances on the pitch. Fans will probably respect him more if he took responsibility and is more honest about our performances.

22.) 15 Apr 2021 10:04:13
Sounds to me like Ole is trying too hard to show he really has a holistic approach to his management. It really isn’t something to talk to the press about, like Ken said. It feels like players are using it as an excuse, that now Ole effectively uses as an excuse for losing. Maybe instead of looking at that he should be getting an optician in.

I read this stuff and it sounds like Ole is trying to show he really knows what he is talking about, almost like he knows many of us are far from convinced he is a manager, let alone our manager and wants to sound like he has his finger on everything.

23.) 15 Apr 2021 11:13:02
Ken you maybe right that is was wrong to air it publicly but I still think doing something about it after players mentioned it is a good thing. Worse case scenario it was a excuse which is no longer an issue.

Lets play! united I agree it is his job to listen and do something about it which is what he has done as for the squad rotation I agree this could be better.

24.) 15 Apr 2021 11:41:39
I take your point bookedred just ole has a way of making himself look stupid imo. He is not the brightest bulb in the bunch so with him being like everybody else and having 1 mouth and 2 ears he should use them in that proportion or maybe ed Woodward won't give him any food.

25.) 15 Apr 2021 12:47:18
Ken totally get it and see how some may find it embarrassing. I actually kind of agree and felt similarly with the grey kit issue years ago. I have however been impressed with ole's management skills around culture and personal treatment to form a team. The psychological contract is an area I work and have great interest in and something fergie was a master at (ole has not showed he is at this level but it's obvious he learnt a lot from sir alex) . That's not to say ole is fantastic as not bringing on subs at times, always starting slow and conceding first (usually) means something is amiss (is it tactics i don't know) but just imo from a people management/ culture aspect I think he has done well.



11 Apr 2021 19:06:57
Nothing makes me smile more than getting a win over Jose. petty I know but I don't care 🤷‍♂️🤣.


1.) 12 Apr 2021 07:22:34
Red Man loves seeing Jose knocked down into the dirt😂.



11 Apr 2021 14:53:20
You just know that Jose and Spurs are going to show up today. been negative all week about them in the media so I expect them to play well today. Let's hope we are at it and don't fall into the same trap as we did in the first game 🤷‍♂️. Ps think we should look at that kid lingard, he could solve are wing problems 🤣.




04 Apr 2021 21:33:54
Turned out to be a very good weekend for us. our result combined with that of others has left us in a very strong position with 8 games to go. That performance against Brighton though?! Nothing to shout about, take the 3 and move on 👍 Happy Easter Everyone 🐰🥳.


1.) 04 Apr 2021 23:00:34
3 points I'll take it. Top 4 a sure thing now. Let's get as many points as possible and a EL win finishing 2nd with a trophy is a good season in terms of returns. Looking forward to the snap for 3rd and 4th .
I hope Leicester see it out and if live Everton to grab 4th but that's a bit of an ideal dream.

2.) 05 Apr 2021 04:35:32
Was a pretty good performance in the end, scrappy first half. They were winning every challenge and snapping hard into everything. I think we missed that bit of steel in the middle with McTom, and not convinced that Pogba showed anything he couldn't have first half.

Second half we started to play a bit more. Pogba and Fernandes started to find pockets of space. Great goal from Fernandes to Rash's finish - looked de brune sterling esq in it's elegant simplicity.

Second goal was delightful to see Greenwood get that type of goal - great movement, where it seemed as everyone else was static and he was moving right to where Pogba's mis directed volley was headed. He is developing into a special player and is the reason I would keep him wide right for another season yet.

For the goal conceded, we can pick at every player's involvement. But i have to say the cross was superb, welbeck's movement very good. And hendo was unlucky with the first save - maybe DDG kicks that away, but then he is the best in the world with that type of reaction save with his feet.

I hope we get some revenge on Tottenham after the last embarrassment. We need to finish the season strongly.

{Ed077's Note - I thought it was a poor performance. Lacklustre. But a good result in the end.

Brighton shouldn't have lost either of their games against us, on merit; but we somehow managed to win both the games without playing well.

Now we have to come out firing all guns blazing against Tottenham. But there's a Europa league match against Granada in between.

3.) 05 Apr 2021 07:27:36

Top 4 is a sure thing now?

We are only 11 points clear from 5th place, with 8 games left.

{Ed077's Note - even that gap to 5th can reduce to 8 points if , IF both West Ham and Everton won their games in hand.

Now I am not saying we won't make top 4, but there's still a chance we blow it. We have proved in recent past that we can manage to cock things up from a positive of absolute strength.
But I think we will make top 3 at least.

We can basically secure CL places if we win our next 3 league games.

4.) 05 Apr 2021 08:24:47
That's assuming that top four gets us UCL football, pretty sure they changed the rules so no more than four teams from any one country can be in it.

Which means if either Liverpool or Chelsea win it and finish 5th then 4th place misses out on a UCL and drops into the Europa League.

5.) 05 Apr 2021 08:59:23
Poor performance overall, lacking ideas and again structure. Brighton actually displayed a methodology, a way of playing and actually were a little unlucky. At 1 all that Harry Maguire incident could and should have been a penalty from what I saw, albeit on my phone. A bit of quality amongst the dross got us two goals and we got through. This was against a perennial relegation candidate.

It’s a good result, always great to have 3 points and results are what you need at this time of the season although it was a somewhat typical disjointed non dynamic performance.

6.) 05 Apr 2021 09:04:42
Agree with Ken, 2nd spot is ours to loose now. Top 4 is secure.

The performance was piss poor again, but a good win considering teams around us dropped points.
Very happy for Greenwood, much needed goal for him.

With Martial out for the season, there is more responsibility on Greenwood.

Would have loved for Amad to get some game time. Hopefully he starts midweek as Rashford is now injured.

7.) 05 Apr 2021 08:12:20

Realistically we should qualify for the CL. Hopefully when we employ Liverpool at home we will have won all of the EPL games.

I just have this feeling that we might just implode. Thankfully Leiceters last three games of the season are tricky ones.

{Ed077's Note - I fully expect us to make top 4. But I am not ruling out the little chance of us making a big old mess of it.}

8.) 05 Apr 2021 10:43:23

When it comes to Utd, nothing surprises me.

{Ed077's Note - exactly. I wouldnt be surprised if we somehow manage to drop out of the top 4. I dont think we will, but there's a chance.}

9.) 05 Apr 2021 14:04:05

You’re wrong and we seem to have this discussion every season, only if the CL winner and Europa league winner don’t finish in the top 4 would 4th place miss out. We have a maximum 5 places.

10.) 05 Apr 2021 14:32:19
So if Arsenal and Liverpool win their respective European competitions and both finish outside the top four then forth places won't get you UCL football next season.

Still very possible.

{Ed077's Note - Correct.

11.) 06 Apr 2021 11:45:36
I really don’t think we will blow top 4 from the position we are in.

Yeah I know, the bucs have been poor for years, who’s to say that we aren’t headed in the same direction though. Just goes to show that taking a risk and bringing in quality pays off.
