So Tuanzebe, Greenwood, Romero and Fred are set to start on Friday per Ole's press conference.


1.) 18 Sep 2019 15:14:31
Gutted for them as the rest of the team play thursday.

2.) 18 Sep 2019 15:19:27
Very good, TB 😂.

3.) 18 Sep 2019 15:21:05
TopBomin - LOL. had me laughing into my coffee.

but seriously i hope we see Gomes and Chong too from the start. No James so Chong could start left. Gomes in at 10 and Lingard right

Fred and Scott.

And then an English back 4 with Romero in goal.

4.) 18 Sep 2019 15:57:09
The match commences at 12.30 AM on Friday morning here in India TB :)

5.) 18 Sep 2019 16:57:20
Ah touche True Red, touche.

6.) 18 Sep 2019 19:21:56
Who’s starting on Thursday? 😉.

7.) 23 Sep 2019 00:34:26
That’s one way to tell people they are playing without actually having to play them 😂.



01 Aug 2019 17:52:09
Maguire left out of squad in friendly.
Looks like United have finally wrapped him up.


1.) 01 Aug 2019 19:48:07
A manikin is a slight improvement on smalling and jones tbh, there is a fantastic thread from @alexLUHS on twitter about him very funny.



30 Jul 2019 10:42:16
Journalist Fabrizio Romano reporting Maguire and Dybala will be United players soon.
Nicolas Pepe to Arsenal it seems.


1.) 30 Jul 2019 11:03:31
Will he be a Gervinho or a Wiltord?



29 Jul 2019 11:13:28
Rumours gathering that Real Madrid have tabled a massive 145m offer for Pogba.


1.) 29 Jul 2019 14:09:40
You appear to have an exclusive that nobody else has heard some three hours after your post.

2.) 29 Jul 2019 15:03:09
Scooby I have seen this reported too so TRD isn't alone.

3.) 29 Jul 2019 15:44:40
Fair enough. I shall keep my eyes and ears open because I haven't seen anything and if it were true I'd expect the press to be all over it. That said I'm definitely not ITK.

4.) 29 Jul 2019 15:48:19
Just found it. The Sun and The Express. Clearly reliable sources. :) )



23 Jul 2019 13:54:13
SMS rumours intensifying.


1.) 23 Jul 2019 15:07:38
Fingers crossed!

2.) 23 Jul 2019 15:23:03
That means, Pogba`s Off to!

3.) 23 Jul 2019 15:29:24
Are they? Wouldn't take much notice after Fernandes has been having a medical for weeks and the same for Maguire 😂.

4.) 23 Jul 2019 15:54:53
Domino effect about to kick in I for one hope SMS is coming to replace Pogba would suit the style OGS is trying to implement a lot more I think.

5.) 23 Jul 2019 15:56:24
I believe the Oxford dictionary states that 'intensifying' can now mean a random rumour off a highly regarded but never seen before football scout on Twitter, who also happens to be 11 years old and goes by the name of Agent Enrique.

6.) 23 Jul 2019 16:02:40
Apparently MUFC have almost agreed a £67million deal to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio on a five year deal. I shall wait and hope. Which I suspect means somebody might be in for Pogba.

7.) 23 Jul 2019 17:31:49
What or who are the sources for Milinkovic-Savic?

8.) 23 Jul 2019 17:32:49
You mean like we signed Maguire?

9.) 23 Jul 2019 18:01:25
Probably not signing many more and giving the kids a chance.

10.) 23 Jul 2019 18:48:51
WRD quite a few sources are running the story on SMS but I believe the original source came from L. A. REPUBLIICA a rome based publication don't know how credible they are tho.

11.) 24 Jul 2019 01:24:55
If i'm not mistaken Gaitan and Sneijder have been having medicals at carrington for over 10 years already.

12.) 24 Jul 2019 06:35:03
SMS could mean

Sean longstaff
Some body else 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣.

13.) 24 Jul 2019 08:51:10
SMS, Longstaff, Maguire and Fernandes.
What a transfer window that would be.

14.) 24 Jul 2019 16:02:31
I think we would be doing very well to get SMS Maguire Longstaff OR
Fernandes Maguire Longstaff in at this late stage.

I can only see SMS + Fernandes joining if both Pogba and Lukaku are sold.
To me that's looking less likely.

15.) 24 Jul 2019 17:24:03
Starting to think we are not in for Fernandes maybe looking at Savic as our ACM.

16.) 24 Jul 2019 19:44:13
I wish we just get rid of Pogba and buy both I've got a horrible feeling Pogba will be staying 1 more year and well end up with longstaff.
If we want top 4 we need fernandes or SMS at a minimum not a guy who's played 9 games and coming off a serious injury it just screams alarm bells to me.

Yet again, we are starting to judge players and the manager on game to game basis.

It will take time to develop understanding between the players and the position they play.
There are changes almost in all the areas of the pitch when compared to last season.
Martial is playing for the first time as a centre forward, Mctominay as first choice DM, Pogba moved to right side of midfield, fresh centre back pairing, new Right full back and a winger.
It is obvious they need to play more games together to develop and evolve as a team.


1.) 26 Aug 2019 09:28:29
Well said, but the preseason was to address this to an extent.

2.) 26 Aug 2019 09:24:51
One player you didn't mention is lingard who is not being judged on a game by game basis, for this whole calendar year he has been severely unproductive. He has to be dropped even at this early stage of the season. Mata, greenwood or gomes should come in for southampton

There is too much pressure on rashford and martial to shoulder the goalscoring burden at the moment. We need a third and fourth option to divert defences attention especially when they defend in a low block which inevitably created the space to create chances and score goals.

City have 5 quality options on the pitch at any one time, liverpool have three quality options and spurs have 4 on the pitch at any one time. Even arsenal once pepe, lacazette and aubameyang play together will have three quality options on the pitch to overload defences.

3.) 26 Aug 2019 10:16:39
The planning and execution of transfers as well as sorting out the situations of Lukaku/ Pog/ Sanchez were poorly dealt with.

We signed Maguire in the last week of the window.
Sold our top scorer again in the last week and didn't replace him. The board left it too late to resolve all these issues and left the squad in limbo without a creative midfielder and a RW which we were all craving for.

4.) 26 Aug 2019 10:39:33
Agree DSG.
Just imagine Bruno or Maddison at no 10 and someone like Sancho on RW. The team would have been prefect.

5.) 26 Aug 2019 12:59:00
Perfect? Come on trd. Perfect😂😂😂😂.

6.) 26 Aug 2019 13:41:51
Those 2 players would have addressed the most glaring deficiencies in the squad Ken :)

7.) 26 Aug 2019 15:51:07
Because every player we sign does really well and never has a bad game.

8.) 26 Aug 2019 15:55:18
Like fred and Sanchez did?



21 Aug 2019 09:28:43
Does anyone else think Crystal Palace will receive a bashing this week?

It will be the perfect game to start Greeenwood on the right side of attack.
James should come on as an impact sub and slot in on either wing.
We must be patient with him considering the last game was his first ever EPL start.


1.) 21 Aug 2019 16:30:52
Lingard is just another example of a pretty average English player bein talked up way above his station by pundits simply because he's English .

See also Welbeck . I remember Scholes saying that LVG should'nt have sold him, somebody pointed out Welbeck's scoring record and Scholes said ' everybody knows Danny's not a goalscorer', but still thought he should be playing in the front three for one of the biggest clubs in Europe .

2.) 22 Aug 2019 07:44:03
bilko do you find yourself embarrassed or frustrated to find you posted in the wrong topic and should have posted the comment to the previous conversation? >.

Is there a link to AJH's prediction competition?
I think I missed to enter.


1.) 12 Aug 2019 11:43:43
What competition? We get to predict each match?

2.) 12 Aug 2019 13:32:23
Trd ajh didn't do it this season.

3.) 12 Aug 2019 18:52:11
oh. was really looking forward to it.
Darn T Tony.



08 Aug 2019 06:39:42
Adding to Brendan's post down the page.
Last year we had a manager sacked, players thrown under the bus frequently, toxic atmosphere and many other off field issues. Still we managed to come close to top 4.

This year we have 2 signings going straight into the starting 11. Greenwood, McTominay and others look like stepping up and the manager is ready to give them the opportunity.

Rebuilding is a steady process. We cannot expect everything to be fixed in a single window.
Defence is sorted, the midfield may be fixed in later windows to get the right targets in.

I am really excited for the new season. The positivity is also a great sign.
Manchester United have always been believers of young talents.
Let us back them instead of complaining about new signings.


1.) 08 Aug 2019 06:56:48
The naivety on here is a sight to see.

If Lukaku goes and no one comes in our net spend will be circa £70m, funnily enough I read the average annual net spend since 2009 was £69m, a coincidence or just what the owners want to budget for transfers.

Our midfield is just not good enough and if we don’t get a goal scorer I fear a difficult season. The defence is much improved but I don’t fancy our present midfield to dominate against any of the other top six, possibly top ten teams. If Pogba goes as well it would be lovely financially but the midfield looks terrible.

The window hasn’t closed yet but I for one won’t be bounced into rah rah land where everything is wonderful

People miss the situation that if we miss top four the top players next summer will not believe we can get back so won’t come, Miss the top six and our options reduce further. The emotional sentimental nonsense that drives some people would still probably harp on about our DNA.

2.) 08 Aug 2019 07:32:03
Couldn’t agree more Redman. Some people still can’t see just how far we’ve fallen. We will get dominated in that CM area frequently. Battle for 5th or 6th I believe. Simply not good enough.

3.) 08 Aug 2019 08:08:47
Careful Red Man and Stand, you're speaking realistically and that's not allowed. Apparently Fred, Mctominay, pogba, Sanchez, Pereira, Matic are going to be top class and create chance after chance for our front two.
I like Mctominay as he plays with passion. But Pogba wants out and the rest are not good enough. So the engine of the team, our midfield, is so poor that teams like Leicester boast a better midfield.
I wanted us to sign Fernandes and Maddison to enhance the chances we create. That's not happened.
We will not challenge, nor qualify for 4th spot with this midfield, they simply don't create enough chances.

4.) 08 Aug 2019 08:15:18
Think you’re right: it’s more about rebuilding for the long term this transfer window, rather than shoe-horning in big signings for an immediate impact as before.

Top 4 will be the target this year then, when we’ve qualified for Ch. League, we can bring in other signings to enhance the foundations such as Declan Rice and Longstaff, again building for the long term.

In the meantime, squad can be trimmed of those players who don’t want/ shouldn’t be at United.

I still think we lack creativity in midfield but, so long as Pogba shows up more often than not, we should had a decent season. Can see youngsters getting their chance also. Bring on Sunday!

5.) 08 Aug 2019 08:17:12
Arsenal and spurs are having a pretty good attempt at fixing everything in this window while we’re sitting back.
Worth noting that we need to close the gap and it seems these two are doing their best to increase the gap between us and them.
Let’s see where we’re at when the window closes.



05 Aug 2019 08:10:19
Hello Ed002,
Is it possible to give a brief update where United currently stand in terms of ins and outs with 3 days remaining for the English transfer window.
Have any wildcard options popped up?

And Is it still practically feasible to recruit RW, CM as well as sorting out the futures of Lukaku, Pogba, Sancheza and Darmian with adequate replacements.


{Ed002's Note - I have been doing that repeatedly.}

Ofcourse we must celebrate the win who ever we face.
It was an all home grown front 4 that started which was something rare and exciting.

442 would expose our central midfield badly.

I'd be tempted to use Greenwood on the right.
He has the natural instincts of a goal scorer.

It was a good outing for many of the squad players.
The play was disjointed at times but it was expected since many of these lads have not played much.

Greenwood certainly made a case for himself.

Yeah a bit dissapointed with Rashford's finishing. He was supposed to be the leader of the attacking unit but was wasteful in front of goal.
Greenwood's composure inside the box was too good.
Chong and Gomes needs to play more and try to make more impact.

Dalot has been injured for the past 3 weeks. He exploited a lot of space on the right.
Tuanzebe was never troubled.
