Rumours that united have been offered Vinicius jr when they were in contact with Real Madrid. Apparently Madrid want 68.5m but a loan with option is a possibility. Is there any substance to this Ed's? Can't see where he would fit tbh.

{Ed002's Note - He won’t be moving to MU.}

Cheers Ed 👍 have a lovely weekend!

Some reports that we are trying to hijack Ajax deal for sulemana, I take it this is the usual transfer window nonsense?!

Tim_99

1.) 26 Jun 2021 01:50:20
For me this one stinks. Even the Ajax reporter said his agent wanted more money that maybe he could get in England. I think Ed months ago said he was talking elsewhere (presumably Ajax) . Is that right Ed?


2.) 26 Jun 2021 03:58:26
I would be surprised if the player would even consider coming to us given that he is not going to get any game time under Ole. But, it wouldn't be surprising with the geniuses at the club to sign another young player without having a plan for him.


3.) 26 Jun 2021 04:23:44
We’ve got Rashford Martial James and Diallo who can all play left wing… not to mention sancho haha.

Then there’s Elanga, Shoretire, Hannibal. Like let’s be real here haha, no chance he would even want to come to us.


4.) 26 Jun 2021 05:44:24
Chrism894, we still did sign Amad/ Pellistri only recently even with all the options available. Never sure about what the people in charge would do.


5.) 26 Jun 2021 08:42:42
Chrism894- you never know what the club are thinking tbf: might have plans to offload martial and james, elanga in talks allegedly about playing time and hannibal still think he will play more central. then again its utd.


 

 

10 Jun 2021 11:15:43
Apparently we have now reached an agreement with sancho and have made an opening bid. according to various sources it's too low and won't be accepted but talks are happening. Hopefully we get this done and it doesn't end up like last year 🤦‍♂️.

Tim_99

1.) 10 Jun 2021 11:36:13
Seems like it might be further than last year already to be honest, our opening bid seems reasonable for a negotiation to me, hopefully meet somewhere in the middle. He isn’t worth what we are paying but who is these days? He improves the team and that’s what matters.


2.) 10 Jun 2021 11:51:21
Totally agree, need to get this one done and get on to improving in other areas…going to be difficult with the euros on though as we aren’t exactly efficient or swift negotiators 🤣 Quick question to the Ed’s, are we back to a normal transfer window now? Ie it ends 31st August? Thanks 👍.

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}


3.) 10 Jun 2021 12:25:49
Thanks for the response ed002 👍.


4.) 10 Jun 2021 18:10:36
BBC reporting that we have made a 67.5 million bid that has been rejected. Dortkund have refused saying they want 77 million and 4.25 million on top.

Two things stroke me about this, didn't we learn Dortmund last year set a valuation and you either meet it or forego the transfer and who is briefing the press about such details. Assuming it is us, I don't really like this way of operating strikes me as pretty classless.


5.) 10 Jun 2021 18:28:14
It's what us british are know best for we like to haggle. We will pay what they want but why not try and save a few quid in the meantime. If I'm being honest I can't see many teams bidding, I personally think he's a bit over rated and should go for raphina who would be a better option and value for money. He's a good player but the cost involved are massive. We should be looking at the guy they will replace him with as dvd seem to do well with buying and selling.


6.) 10 Jun 2021 18:38:30
Negotiating is how business works, it’s not classless. We aren’t far away from what they want, if the story is to be believed it sounds like we will be back with another offer soon and should get it over the line finally.


7.) 10 Jun 2021 18:39:25
Oakbark,

If you wanted to buy my car and thought it was worth £5000 but I said I’ll accept nothing less than £10,000 would you pay up or try and negotiate?


8.) 10 Jun 2021 19:14:31
Dortmund are notorious for setting an asking price and not budging. We have offered £67 million when they wanted £77 million. Will we now waste the summer arguing over £10 million, which is the equivalent of Phil Jones medical bill.


9.) 10 Jun 2021 18:46:18
Ed, are you able to confirm whether the situation has progressed today?

{Ed002's Note - According to his agent, no.}


10.) 10 Jun 2021 19:37:15
Apologies I pressed send too early.

As I said my classless didn't refer too negotiations, that is part of it.

My reference was entirely to us yet again deciding to come out and post am unofficial message over the negotiations via Simon Stone of the BBC. I don't like this way of doing business I would prefer us to do our negotiations behind closed doors and not start speaking of it appease fans most likely. I just don't like this way of operating, in the past I don't remember us doing this. I don't see City or Chelsea operating in this manner.

As for the negotiations itself, Dortmund have clearly shown they set a price and we either pay it or walk away. We went through this last summer again briefing Mr Stone over the same issue. It makes us look unprofessional highlighting the exact same problem publicly again in my opinion.


11.) 11 Jun 2021 11:28:37
still unsure on sancho money mooted after we spent on amad and pellustri as well as having greenwood?

{Ed077's Note - even if all the clauses were met in the Diallo and Pellestri deals, we would still have a lower monetary outlay on those two than on the "additional" /agents fee in Sancho deal. I hope we don't bow down to the demands of Sancho's agents or it will set a very bad precedent IMO.


12.) 11 Jun 2021 17:59:37
ED077 - I think we have already passed that mate with other deals ie., mr pogba.

{Ed077's Note - then we should learn from our previous experiences}


13.) 13 Jun 2021 13:06:30
Dortmund are in a strong position. They actually don't need to sell anyone . I think we would be better off going for Traore and Neves from Wolves who are also available rather than wasting another window pursuing Sancho.


14.) 15 Jun 2021 16:54:59
Neves maybe, mate. Not Traore. A bulkier Dan James.


 

 

24 May 2021 13:48:26
So Real Madrid are putting hazard up for sale. que the hazard for pogba swap stories that will inevitably follow. 🤣.

Tim_99

1.) 24 May 2021 15:08:58
Looking at Hazard's injury record since joining Real Madrid he looks like the new Bale. good player when fit, but just can't stay fit.


2.) 24 May 2021 15:43:29
lol Tim
It was indeed suggested by Raiola :)


3.) 24 May 2021 21:00:23
If we needed a left winger i would be tempted by hazard.

But considering we have about 18 left wingers in the squad i think we can give this one a miss.


 

 

31 Jan 2021 11:31:30
Sergio Ramos rumours again 🤦‍♂️ Let's hope we aren't stupid enough to fall for this stunt, it's clearly never going to happen.

Tim_99

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.

According to various reports pogba has rejected our contract offer and expressed his desire to move on. hopefully now the club shows some sense and sells him this summer! To keep him hostage as ed002 has said doesn't make any sense either commercially or football wise. Offload him for a few Quid now if possible rather than letting him walk next year and have to put up with the constant media fallout in the meantime.

Tim_99

1.) 23 Jul 2021 09:16:54
Frankly I'm confused as to why the club even contemplate a new contract. Having previously stated his desire to be elsewhere why is he still here? Bizarre.


2.) 23 Jul 2021 09:42:50
Just get rid once and for all. Spend the money and a decent central midfielder like Goretzka. Sick and tired of this Paul Pogba circus.


3.) 23 Jul 2021 10:11:17
In an ideal world someone would have an honest conversation with Pogba and understand what he wants (stay on big money/ leave for PSG/ leave for Juventus) and then work together to achieve that goal. Keeping him if he does not want to be here will kick us long term as we will receive no fee for him and potentially you get a player who is not fully committed in his final year. If possible the club need this to happen as soon as possible and not get too greedy in the process.
Once that happens they should trust the management team and scouts that they could adequately replace Pogba, either with more responsibility for Van Dyke or by bringing another player in. On the whole I think the players brought in recently have been the right ones (certainly the right positions) so have faith that this will happen again. Also, just because we paid £80+ for Pogba we are not losing a player that currently is worth that much to the team. reality is that with good scouting he can be replaced with a good sensible purchase.


4.) 23 Jul 2021 10:12:52
Swap deal with Varane?


5.) 23 Jul 2021 11:00:43
I think what we are seeing with Pogba and Raiola is a player and agent who have now priced themselves out of a dream move to Real Madrid or a romantic move back to Juventus. Every time they accepted a ridiculous contract from United they moved further away to the move I think everyone knows Pogba wanted. It would seem PSG is the only realistic move for him this summer in terms of a club that will offer him the wages he wants and pay a fee United would accept. If Pogba goes to PSG it's another club he'll be playing for but doesn't really have the desire to play for and his ''peak age'' playing career will be with 2 clubs where his heart has never really been into. If he goes there this summer and gives them 3 years he'll be 31 by the time he potentially makes his next move, would he still get one of the 2 moves he wants at that age? I think it is fair to say Ronaldo is a exception to the rules before people use him as an example.

Now he could go on a free next summer which would allow clubs to offer him a larger contract but he will be 29 and there are a lot of very good younger midfielders who would be cheaper and also offer longer term prospects. De Jong, Bissouma, Groetzka, Kimmich, Locatelli and Camavinga for example and no doubt a few I have missed.

I would take £50M for him this summer, think with Pogba gone, the balance of the starting 11 is better with the personnel we have and considering we have only had a handful of great games from Pogba, I don't think we are losing much if he leaves. Pogba leaving also doesn't change the fact we need a defensive or more disciplined minded CM. For me, if Neves was available for £35M I'd go for him. I think he would be similar to when we got Carrick in, not the traditional defensive midfielder everyone wants but a disciplined CM who can keep possession and link the defence and attack. Hopefully VDB will get more chances as well with Pogba moved on.


6.) 23 Jul 2021 11:35:09
It's a situation complicated by the people who run the club. On one hand he has said he wants to leave, but then many players have said that to their clubs only to happily sign a new deal on larger terms than they were previously offered. Keane and Rooney have done that in the past, while we did once hold discussions with Ramos's agent when he told Real Madrid he wanted to leave 4-5 years ago.

So it's not always a case of a player really wanting to leave even when they say they do.

While apparently Pogba has been an ideal player in training, working hard, in good spirits and doesn't bad mouth the club. So it's not like he's acting out to force a move.

Yet I think it is clear he wants to try something different and in an ideal world the club would have facilitated a move. While they might not have been fully happy with the offers they were made from other clubs, the response should have been to open up negotiations rather than refuse to discuss it. Like we have seen with the clubs attempts to sign players from other clubs they seem to have this mentality that they can bully clubs and players to do what they want. Which in reality has never really worked out well for the club.

Pogba should have left a couple of season's ago, while the clubs stance has caused the total breakdown of a relationship with one of the worlds top agents. Possibly removing the option to sign players attached to Mino. Players like Donnarumma, De Ligt, Haaland, Verratti, Gravenberch, Malen, Thuram and many more. While Mino's actions contribute to the issue, it would be foolish to consider our club devoid of any responsibility to the current bad blood between them. It takes two to argue.

Hopefully the club can do the right thing and let Pogba leave this summer, PSG according to reports look like a possible destination, while I'd imagine some sort of deal could be fashioned with Juventus, although I'd expect it would need to involve a player or two in swap. The rumours that we seems to be inquiring about multiple midfielders suggests that we might see one leaving this summer.


7.) 23 Jul 2021 12:00:51
Rumour is that PSG have to shift some players to make space and get pogba in: wouldn't mind icardi if he is a possibility and the the funds from, periera, lingard, dalot to bring in midfielder say neves. That along with the sancho, varane deals would be a pretty decent window.


8.) 23 Jul 2021 12:34:34
Funky, I wouldn't go anywhere near Icardi. He's a good player no doubt, but his Misses/ agent/ pain in everyone's ass will come along with him.

There are a few players I'd take from PSG, sadly I doubt they would be prepared to include players like Mbappe or Marquinhos. On the whole I don't think player swaps are a good idea, rarely do both sides really benefit from them.


9.) 23 Jul 2021 12:35:24
Prisoners demand Pizza

maybe we could look to a similar sort of deal for our 'hostage'.

Just keep the ransom away from Luke Shaw.


 

 

21 Jul 2021 16:12:35
Goretzka, neves, camavinga all linked but u just know it's mcfred all the way next year 🤣.

Tim_99

1.) 21 Jul 2021 16:36:02
There's a lot of time left in the transfer window and United sell papers and get clicks.

Sancho is in the bag and Varane looks like he will join soon.

We are interested in Trippier.

The media outlets now need to link United to different players and midfield is the other area we need. I'd expect to see us linked to more midfielders.


2.) 21 Jul 2021 17:02:42
So they sell a McFred burger at Legends?


3.) 21 Jul 2021 17:55:50
Yes, the McFred burger with theOle sauce.


4.) 21 Jul 2021 19:03:49
LPU that's enough to give anybody food poisoning.


5.) 21 Jul 2021 19:35:38
Ken, hopefully we don't get served the same on the pitch on a regular basis even after the inclusion of Varane (possibly) .


6.) 21 Jul 2021 20:21:38
LPU. I belive he will be the potential game changer for our style of play. He won't be able to play oleball.
He is a winner a leader and a proper player.


7.) 21 Jul 2021 22:45:13
Goretzka? More chance of signing Pele.


8.) 22 Jul 2021 06:31:07
spenno, unless he is looking for a big payday before moving somewhere else and we are known for giving away silly money to sign players.


9.) 22 Jul 2021 06:32:19
Ken, I hope so.

The issue though is we need better coaches and a manager who is brave and decisive. Bad coaching and tactics can make even a proper player look bad.


 

 

18 Jul 2021 17:28:52
What a Grand Prix! United game not bad either 🤣.

Tim_99

1.) 18 Jul 2021 18:31:37
I didn't agree with the penalty. But it made the race a great spectacle. Fantastic drive.

Max is a very good aggressive driver, but he had to stay on the wider line and not try for the apex. A fee corners earlier lewis was in the reverse position and stayed centre of track and raced. Hope max is okay, but he caused that.


2.) 18 Jul 2021 18:51:35
Verstappen is a great driver but he pushes the boundaries continually, this was bound to happen.


3.) 18 Jul 2021 19:37:30
Hamilton was in the wrong here, he knows how high speed that corner is, was missing the apex of that corner and stuck his wheels where they shouldn't have been anyway, loads of room for Lewis to be in aswell, dangerous and Max lucky he's OK. A 10 second penalty was light considering actual real racing incidents get just 5 seconds less.
So Max loses any points and potentially could have been out for future races while Lewis gets a soft penalty with a superior car to the rest and gets Bottas moved out the way yet again for him, embarrassing really.


4.) 18 Jul 2021 19:46:25
Agree with the above posts and a bit disappointed in some of the things coming out of red bull, blaming Hamilton, calling for a race suspension etc etc. Didn’t see that Hamilton done anything wrong, Verstappen is very aggressive so is Hamilton so sometimes if u live by the sword u die by the sword! Brilliant race by Hamilton regardless especially with the penalty. Congrats to him 👏🇬🇧.


5.) 18 Jul 2021 19:58:17
This was a racing incident welsh. If max didn't have that crash and only span off it wouldn't have been any penalty.

He was side by side into corner, he was breaking earlier to make the corner.

If max stays on wide line and lewis pushes him off track on exit I agree. But max knew he was there and turned in on him. He had to leave space round corner from where they were on entry.


6.) 18 Jul 2021 20:04:06
What a drive from lewis 👏👏👌 I can understand Cristian Horners frustration. but jesus how unprofessional in the ch4 interview does he really want to get lewis a race ban! I'm a tad disappointed in CH who I had always respected.


7.) 18 Jul 2021 20:35:28
Welsh, go back 2 corners and Lewis could have turned in on Max but played it safe, good job he did. Max has bullied Hamilton this year, it’s about time Hamilton stood up for himself. There was plenty of room on both sides of both drivers, Verstappen knew he was there, he turned in, therefore he was at fault. The stewards saw it differently but gave a very minor penalty so they weren’t particularly concerned.


8.) 19 Jul 2021 10:08:39
Loved it, penalty was wrong, not sure what Hamilton could've done. There are plenty of incidents that have happened on that corner, Max's aggressiveness caused that IMO. I'm glad Lewis did not pull out

It's going to make for interesting driving between the two, max was clearly very annoyed. Lewis will be grinning like a Cheshire cat no doubt. Going to be a fantastic end to the season.


9.) 19 Jul 2021 13:25:05
Max for me is suffering from the same thing Hamilton did early in his career.
Clearly he is hugely talented, but races with the aggression of youth, it feels like its only a matter of time until he wins the championship. Yet like Hamilton before him he needs to learn how to harness that drive and aggression, to focus it and know when to pick his moments.

Like all of us when we are in our teens/ early 20's we think we are indestructible. That often leads us to mistake foolishness for bravery. As we age we gain a better perspective and with more experience we learn what is foolish and what is brave.

Max made a stupid error turning in trying to force Hamilton to break. It was too aggressive and he lost out. Fortunately his stint in the hospital was short and he seems physically okay. He needs to learn from this rather than throw his toys out of the pram. He is fortunate enough to be able to spend his formative years in F1 racing alongside one of the all time greats in Hamilton. Just as Hamilton made his first strides into F1 with Michael Schumacher in the final few years of his pomp. Hamilton used those experiences to learn from Schumacher, and no doubt its made him a better driver.

Verstappen has another 10-15 years in F1, he doesn't need to win every single duel out on the track. If he learns from this then he has every chance to go one and match maybe even surpass what Schumacher and Hamilton have achieved.


 

 

13 Jul 2021 22:39:39
Rashy missing for 2 months. disappointing for him but better he gets the op and recovers than continually just managing the injury. Wish he could have came back firing straight away after the events of the past few days but that can wait. Wish him a successful op and speedy recovery.

Tim_99

1.) 13 Jul 2021 23:08:42
It begs the question why the bell was he in the squad if he isn't100% fit. He should have had his surgery 6 weeks ago.
Injury is part of football he is employed by the club. He hardly kicked a ball all tournament and should have been recuperating. I've seen some crazy decisions by the club management but this is the worst of all.
Shocking.


2.) 14 Jul 2021 00:22:52
To be fair Ken what does the club do, there are very few chances to play in an international tournament and if a player is set on it ypu can't stop them.

This could just have easily been Rashfords saying I am playing no matter what. No one knew how little he would play, most people would expect he would have played more.

It's a bit unfair to knock United over this because we don't know who said what.

When all is said and done no one can force someone to have surgery.


3.) 14 Jul 2021 01:03:47
When you say club management Ken who do you mean? It will have been Rashford’s decision, I assume you mean Ole?


4.) 14 Jul 2021 05:45:25
I am glad this is happening.

Crazy how long Marcus has been carrying that and playing for us. While we will miss him till, after the international break in September (approximating), it will also give the other lads to step up a bit and show Ole that they are solid rotation options.


5.) 14 Jul 2021 06:48:09
I’m with ken. He hardly played in the Euros, he wouldn’t have been missed, he was pretty much just enjoying the experience. He’s paid very very well and if needed an op he should have had it immediately the season ended. How much n Earth this was decided is beyond me. The only plus is this length of time might mean all his knocks clear up and he’s finally fit.


6.) 14 Jul 2021 07:23:16
Good for Rashy. Playing with injuries may lead to long term career risk.
Before signing Bruno, he was the one who mainly carried the team.
Therefore we need him fully fit.


7.) 14 Jul 2021 08:11:58
Didnt Marcos say before the Euros that he would make the decision on his shoulder surgery after the tournament.

Obviously he would have liked to have played more minutes but the form of Sterling prevented that.

With the benefit of hindsight he might have made a different decision, but he was part of a squad that made it to a final, you can see why he would want to be part of it.


8.) 14 Jul 2021 07:55:21
United pay his wages not England. If he was a vital member playing in every game then you would understand why the England manager would want him, yet he hardly played at all. He was brought on like an American punt kicker in the final, used to try to have one kick. This costs United his services for weeks. He needs to be managed better all round, remember who his first loyalties are to.
I recall Stephen Gerrard had an operation, missed an England tournament, put Liverpool first to ensure he was ready for a new season. The club should have looked at this.
I am with Ken and AJH this is now ridiculous, United are paying him when he isn’t available just so he could be a sub for England. Why didn’t the club act like Liverpool did with Gerrard? Why was Rashford vastly overplayed last season with an injury? Why was necessary medical intervention not taken last season?
It highlights amateur in the thinking.


9.) 14 Jul 2021 08:46:59
He didn’t know he wasn’t going to be playing did he? Most people would have expected him to play. Most players don’t get the chance to play in many tournaments and I can’t blame him for making that decision. Perhaps he’s realised over the last few weeks it is worse than he thought? Maybe missing the England games has made him re-evaluate and want to get it right as he’s realised it is affecting him more than he thought?

Let’s not miss another chance to bash ‘the management’ though eh.


10.) 14 Jul 2021 09:33:22
Plus the surgeon was not apparently available until July. Why not go to the tournament?


11.) 14 Jul 2021 09:44:03
You can understand the argument on either side for this. From Rashford's point of view a big tournament predeominantly on home soil with a good chance of success, why would you not risk it. From the club's point of view they will not be happy to lose him until October having known that he was carrying this at the end of the season.
However, better to know now that he will be out and we can plan for that. It maybe gives an opportunity for Martial to have a good pre-season and take that left sided position. As we have said on Sancho he can play across the front 3 so can play out there and will also give Greenwood a chance to get some game time as well.
Lets hope it all goes well and we get a fully fit and rested Rashford when he comes back.


12.) 14 Jul 2021 10:17:50
How come people think that they know better? Everyone seems to think they know more than the people who are around Rashford everyday. It’s like people think that everyone involved is completely inept and has no clue about what they're doing. These people have forgotten more than we will ever know, that’s why they’re in top top jobs at one of the worlds top sports teams. I understand people questioning the motives and running of the club by the owners but the medical staff etc are way more in the know about managing rashford than we ever will be. There are reasons why it’s taken till now to sort it out, some we know of, some we don’t. Either way it’s Marcus’ decision and no one can make that choice for him regardless of how much they pay him.


13.) 14 Jul 2021 10:26:00
Lickyfields

Worth reminding you that the respected Ed’s say our club is run by amateurs. These “clever” people you refer to can’t forget what they didn’t know in the first place.


14.) 14 Jul 2021 10:35:18
As Eric says, it has come out now that the surgeon wasn't available until July to do the operation, so it makes perfect sense why he went to the Euro's rather than sit waiting until now, nothing really more to say once you know that.


15.) 14 Jul 2021 11:18:31
End of July GDS2.


16.) 14 Jul 2021 11:35:29
The break will do him good and at least it's not surgery on his legs.

Although I've heard he has an ankle issue that could be looked at at the same time.


17.) 14 Jul 2021 11:41:35
I think Dan James will stay now, although I'd look Diallo to be given a chance off the bench, as part of squad rotation and possibly league Cup if we get a favourable draw, with loan James out. For the lad to progress a loan move away from the Club would benefit Dan James.


18.) 14 Jul 2021 12:37:46
To be fair he is only human like the rest of us. Who wouldn't want to go and play and experience a big tournament with their country.


19.) 14 Jul 2021 12:43:15
We could play Martial, James or Sancho on the left, with Greenwood and Amad able to play on the right.

That's the benefit of signing someone like Sancho. He gives us that versatility and cover. The only issue is he will have more pressure to hit the ground running with Rashford out.


20.) 14 Jul 2021 14:00:24
It should not have been his decision. He did not dictate when he plays the club do.
There is more than one surgeon in the world.
We should not pander to the whims of any player or national team.
I don't believe there was no window to operate from may to July.
Of course he wanted to play but the club should come 1st.
Gds2 I'm sure one was not the only one involved hence management nt and not only ole. If I thought it was ole alone I'd have laid the blame at his door alone.


21.) 14 Jul 2021 14:29:46
You didn't miss the opportunity to bash james earlier gds2 but that's OK.


22.) 14 Jul 2021 14:32:10
I am with Ken, the finger doesn’t point just at Ole but surely the Football Director should have considered this injury in the overall strategy for next season. Amad is on Olympic duty and after spending 73m on Sancho for the right wing “ “problem” it would be frankly embarrassing to stick him on the left for 2 months.
I suspect Pogba may play left if he stays but no idea why the club don’t just let him go. Personally it would be tempting to try Greenwood or actually Mejbri on the left depending on the formation. I like Mejbri and will it be a chance for him? (As long as he isn’t at the Olympics)


23.) 14 Jul 2021 15:56:59
Bashing? Haha I thought I was quite nice about him to be honest, said he works hard etc just don’t think he’s good enough. I don’t come on here every day to write a post about him, hardly bashed the lad.

Sure Rashford would have been delighted if the club stopped him from playing at the Euro’s and sitting at home waiting to have an operation.


24.) 14 Jul 2021 17:57:45
He is not fit gds2 he shouldn't be available for selection. He needs an operation. He is not fit. Do you give your kids everything they want or do you get everything you want as an employee?
Where did I bash the management if that's your criteria for bashing. The usual double standard from you.
Questioning a decision is not bashing unless your a right drama queen.


25.) 14 Jul 2021 18:00:34
Red Man, I think you might be right about Pogba playing LW for a while. He played the last half a dozen games last season at LW and shunted Rashford out to the right.

On of Pogba or Martial on the left with one of Sancho or Greenwood on the right and Cavani central. If Cavani isn't fit then one of Martial or Greenwood will play central maybe with one of Pogba or Sancho or both playing the wider roles.

Cavani, Sancho, Martial, Greenwood, and Pogba should be good enough to cover the three positions for a couple of months.

With players like James and Mata offering squad depth, and Amad once he's back from the Olympics.


26.) 14 Jul 2021 19:25:17
Haha Ken chill out, someone rattled your cage again, give it a rest. If you don’t think certain people on here bash the manager then fair enough, I think most would say they definitely do regularly, we can agree to disagree.

He has said he was fit and doesn’t need the operation and could play through it but has decided during the summer that something hasn’t felt right and he needs to go and have the operation. All this information is out there I’m not making it up. You can have an injury but still be able to play. Just one of them things, hopefully he comes back fresh once it’s done.


27.) 14 Jul 2021 19:43:16
Not in today's level of game, GDS2. You could see that in his performances towards the end of the season.


28.) 14 Jul 2021 20:18:16
Well that’s why he’s made the decision to get it done, I’ll be happy to have him back for the rest of the season fully fit even if it means missing the first 10 or so games. A fully fit Rashford would be great.

Said to the wife when sancho and rashford were coming on I bet u they miss and cost England and low and behold it came true although it was sakas pen that put the nail in the coffin. Great strike by slabhead mind u. Well done Italy 🇮🇹👍 redemption is yours!

Terrible penalties I can't stand it when a player stutters his run up, did they not watch kane and maguire, both just ran and smashed it, I understand its a lottery in shootouts but taking pens like that to me is unforgivable.


2.) 11 Jul 2021 23:15:49
Agreed just pick a side run up and hit it…too many steps and stutters so u reach the ball with barely any momentum.


3.) 11 Jul 2021 23:23:52
Maguires pen was unreal tho lol.
Anyway, happy my picks did it and cost England in the process, grazi x.

{Ed014's Note - and I had Italy in the sweep stake! Happy days 😂


4.) 11 Jul 2021 23:37:58
Feel for saka but admire his bottle at 19, to step up and take the pen took guts. You’ve got a good one there Ed👍.

{Ed014's Note - I think we have Tim and he should be proud of himself, I know I am. A great talent.


5.) 12 Jul 2021 00:11:10
And what does it say about the capt of a national team who can't be trusted to take a penalty when the pressure is on and instead leaves it to a youngster like Saka.


6.) 12 Jul 2021 00:09:53
Had Italy as well Ed, but as an Irish man almost found myself cheering you boys on.

Hope saka, Sancho and rashford aren’t crucified in the press over the next few days/ weeks.

Saka is a cracking player. Would love him here.

{Ed014's Note - haha, a result and I hope so too mate and really love him too!


7.) 12 Jul 2021 08:08:38
England got a dream start but never chased a 2nd goal until late extra time. 7 defensive outfield players and slow build ups. Too pragmatic, that's where they lost it, not the penalties. Italy were the best team in the tournament.


8.) 12 Jul 2021 11:26:09
Salford was kane not captain? he took a pen.


9.) 12 Jul 2021 11:47:26
Salford,

Was Kane supposed to take 2 penalties?

I mentioned this down the page, ed002 said he won’t be joining us. decent player but I struggle to see why we would want him as he’s another wide player not a number 9. the 2 big Spanish clubs really are having a fire sale aren’t they 🤣.

Apparently Madrid want 80m we offered 50m…for once I’ll side with us on this, no way should we pay that when he’s got 1 year left on his contract. Madrid always see us coming don’t they!

That’s the thing though, we won’t pay the extra 10 million, we have a value and so do Madrid and if the past has taught us anything it’s that doing business with real is v difficult. I expect this one to run on and on, Pity because it would be in everyone’s interest to get him in and up to speed before the season starts!

Agree with the above posts and a bit disappointed in some of the things coming out of red bull, blaming Hamilton, calling for a race suspension etc etc. Didn’t see that Hamilton done anything wrong, Verstappen is very aggressive so is Hamilton so sometimes if u live by the sword u die by the sword! Brilliant race by Hamilton regardless especially with the penalty. Congrats to him 👏🇬🇧.

Interesting move…surprised athletico would take him back after how he left and handled his ‘decision’ so publicly. Surely greizmann would need to take a pay cut also.

We want footballers to be role models and set a good example to kids everywhere, he does it and gets slated. He’s a gem in every way and as a united fan I’m proud of him and will defend him to anyone.

Disgusting isn’t it and seems to be very predictable now after every game. As a Irish man I’ll admit I wanted Italy to win last night but I was gutted for the lads who missed the pens. My first thought afterwards was ‘they will get it on social media’ the situations getting worse and something needs to be done as who knows how some of these vile comments will affect young teenagers/ men’s mental state. As united fans it’s our job to rally round our players as I’m sure arsenal fans will saka, but as a football community as a whole I think it’s time we collectively put pressure on social media firms. The clubs have had blackouts etc maybe they need to do more, hit those companies financially and maybe they will do something ethically.
