Reports stating United are looking to sign a GK this summer with Oblak and Donnarumma under consideration. Any truth to this?

{Ed002's Note - It is Sergio Romero (G) and Lee Grant (G) that need a replacement - if De Gea or Dean Henderson were to leave then perhaps another higher end goalkeeper would arrive. I would not hold your breath - certainly not for Donnarumma. There has been interest in Oblak before.}


1.) 10 Mar 2021 00:26:55
Thanks Ed, I thought it odd tbh but then again we have done things in an odd way recently.


2.) 10 Mar 2021 12:52:10
Think it be very counter productive to sign a Donnarumma or Oblak. Club needs to decide what to do regarding De Gea and Henderson first. Imagine selling De Gea then getting one of them to replace him, you going to still have a upset Henderson

Think the club will try to delay it another season but I would let De Gea go if needs be, hopefully he can get a move that's suitable for him for all the fantastic service he provided us. Henderson is our future number 1.

Logically you would sell De Gea and buy a decent number 2 to back up Henderson. Matt Ryan from Brighton for me, be a logical choice.


3.) 10 Mar 2021 15:06:39
I think if someone like PSG come in and make a decent offer for DDG we should snatch their hands off.

DDG is still a good keeper, but he is no longer a great one. Yet he is on a reported 375k per week. He is also steadily declining and has 4 years left on his contract.

If we can move him on them we have to take that, otherwise we could be stuck with the highest paid keeper in the world who is declining for the next 4 years.

Give Henderson the No.1 shirt and buy a top back up keeper to challenge/ cover for him. Possibly someone older with a bit of experience. A player like Areola from Fulham if they go down, or Krul or Begovic from Norwich or Bournemouth from the Championship. Players with EPL experience.


4.) 11 Mar 2021 00:12:30
With the birth of his child, I wouldn’t be surprised if Dave opts to go back to Spain this summer. I wish we’d done more to keep Romero happy as I’d be more than satisfied with him and Dean as our keepers. Swapping Dave for Oblak (either figuratively or literally) would leave us in the same mess we’re in now so I hope we steer clear unless the plan is to offload both Dave and Dean and replace them with a first and second choice keeper. That would be equally nonsensical though, imo.

{Ed077's Note - Spain doesnt have many options for DDG right now.}


5.) 11 Mar 2021 18:45:45
Krul or begovic? Really shappy? Scraping the bottom of the barrel there lad.

{Ed077's Note - Romero is better and more importantly better suited in a possesion style}


6.) 12 Mar 2021 11:04:50
RedWhiskey, Areola would be my first choice. EPL proven and has been top class in a struggling side for most of the season.

That said, what I think we need is a clear second choice keeper, but one who can push Henderson. Similar to when we had Lindegaard with DDG when he was first here.

I'd love to keep Romero but I think we have burned our bridges there.

Ideally we would need someone who speaks English (as communication is vital for a keeper) and ideally has played in the EPL so won't be surprised when challenged in the air for crosses etc. Also ideally I think we need someone with a little experience, someone who has been there and can pass that experience on.

Finding top class players who would be happy to be back up is difficult. While with all the other areas we need to improve on we don't want to be spending 25m on a back up keeper, the cheaper the better really.

Both Begovic and Krul have been statistically in the top 4 keepers in the championship this season, have EPL experience and are at an age where they might accept being second choice at a club like United rather than first choice in the championship.


7.) 13 Mar 2021 10:48:51
Romero was one of the best back up goalkeepers around and seemed happy in the role. The decision to retain DDG, then bring back Henderson was a crazy one. Those had to be managerial decisions, but made no sense, then we should have been fair to Romero yet were very poor. I have to wonder how other pro footballers feel when they hear about Romero’s treatment. We should have sold DDG several years ago yet gave him a whopping new contract, madness.


8.) 13 Mar 2021 19:43:50
Why are we all so keen to get rid of DDG? He’s our best keeper by a clear margin. Henderson needs a loan to play matches every week.


9.) 14 Mar 2021 13:06:03
Romero has been a quality back-up keeper for us and was seemingly happy to play his part in the cup games but obviously we have had to look to the future and bring Henderson in or risk losing him completely. Henderson is 23 though and I was still surprised that, in a European Championship year, we saw him move back to United as it made more sense for all parties for him to stay on loan at Sheff United and be playing week in week out. Romero a perfectly capable back-up and once longer term view on De Gea future known he could've shared duties with Henderson.


10.) 15 Mar 2021 10:27:38
De Gea has been better this season than last, he’s made a couple of mistakes but that’s it and has made some great saves, people were saying before his recent error that Deano coming back has forced him to improve and I agree. Henderson is a top keeper too and is pushing for his place, the defence looks better and more assured with him in there, so if bringing Henderson back was a ‘managerial decision’ then it was a good one for me.


 

 

10 Nov 2020 10:05:06
Rumours that Mason Greenwood isn't applying himself in training, obvs don't know how true that is but seemingly left out on occasion due to discipline issues. If it is true then it would be a huge waste of talent, someone needs to get a grip of him and say look at what you have at your feet, not sure there is anyone at the club that's got that about them, Bruno perhaps, anyway, maybe its not accurate but usually no smoke without fire.


1.) 10 Nov 2020 10:21:42
Hearing exactly the same and just submitted a post prior to seeing this. Latest is apparently Bruno confronting him with a rather large bust up ensuing and resulting in him being 'unwell' and not in the squad for the Everton game. I do hope it’s all nonsense but.

Gareth Bale 1 year loan with pption to buy at the end, perhaps Real subsiding some of his wages or waiving a fee to get him off their books all rumoured today.
Any truth we are looking to turn to Bale Ed?
I have read across the site thar Bale doesn't want to play football, I'm not sure that is true, ZZ won't play him and so he is picking up a big wage, problem has been nobody could afford him to buy or loan and Real also wanted a fee so I feel a tad unfair on Bale to say he has given up.
Problem i'd see is we sign Bale and he just won't be fit for a while or its a risk in terms of injuries but we do have Greenwood to rotate with him which may work on that basis.
If we was also to sign Stevanovic with Bale for a couple of years, Greenwood eventually going central, may not work out too bad, a risk as I say in terms of Bale himself but on his day he is unplayable and the savings from Sancho fees we could strengthen elsewhere, mind you we need to sell players first.

{Ed002's Note - Gareth Bale (RW) - if the finances can be sorted out Manchester United could opt for him as an alternate to Sancho.}


1.) 15 Sep 2020 10:18:19
Thank you Ed.


2.) 15 Sep 2020 10:21:57
Bale when fit and motivated is excellent. Even 30 games a season from a fit and motivated Bale makes our squad considerably better. His contribution would outweigh that of James, Pereira, Mata etc you'd expect.

The issue for me isn't even the fitness side of things, it's more the motivation element. He's achieved everything he could have at Real from a silverware perspective but from an individual one not so much. Does he still have the drive to be one of the best in the world? He gets to stay in a lovely city with good weather, good food, gets to play an incredible golf course at the Santander Madrid and when he is at work he gets to play football for one of the biggest clubs in the world, earning a massive wage doing it. He's living the dream and motivation must be hard to muster when that is the case.

I think it is a risk but based on the other options of Perisic or Costa, I'd still edge towards Bale but that's probably more in hope that he rediscovered his best form than expectation.


3.) 15 Sep 2020 10:36:18
Bale can single handedly win games.
I do like the option of Greenwood and Bale rotating on RW.


4.) 15 Sep 2020 11:00:44
Bale ‘could’ singlehandedly win games, past tense.

Now Bale is finished. Massive wages, atrocious injury record, no work ethic, and doesn’t seem to care about playing.


5.) 15 Sep 2020 11:01:12
No problem rotating with bale as he'll be rotating with the operating table anyway.


6.) 15 Sep 2020 13:00:57
Id be happy as ed said if the finances could be sorted.
A loan with an option would be ideal imo and fairly low risk.


7.) 15 Sep 2020 14:16:32
I'd be disappointed if we sign Bale. I don't think short term options are a worthwhile investment. Look at Ighalo, as much as you might want him to be a success. The reality is is that he isn't going to challenge for a first team spot when everyone is fit. He's just there to make up the numbers.

If we can't sign Sancho this summer then I doubt we'll ever sign him. Next summer he'll either be more expensive than this, or if he isn't and is actually available cheaper then we will likely face strong competition from other sides, possibly even the sides that he would prefer to move to.

The only scenario which isn't a terrible idea when signing Bale would be on a heavily subsidised one year loan deal. He is 31, has a chequered history with injuries, is a player who relies heavily on pace, and has shown little desire to play football over the past few seasons.

Will he be able to stay fit often enough to play a decent number of games?

If he can stay fit is he still able to make a difference in the faster more physically demanding league?

Would he be a positive or negative impact on our young squad?

If he can stay fit, and if he can still play at the level he was at a few years ago and if he can find his desire to play then he would be a good signing.

But that is a lot of ifs. While his wage demands have the potential to cause another Sanchez situation.

A one year loan deal where we pay half his wages and a proportion of that half is performance related. Then it wouldn't be an awful move.

But then what happens if he does well? Should the club sign him permanently next summer? And at what cost? Or if we can't sign Sancho next summer and Bale flops who do we sign then?

I think if we can't sign Sancho then we should look for a diamond in the rough type signing. Someone young, with potential who we could sign and rotate around with the likes of Greenwood, Rashford and James in the wide positions.

Mbeumo, Tsygankov, Stengs, Neres, or Leon Bailey.

Players who can play anywhere across the front line, have talent and could make a huge jump up if placed in and around better players.


8.) 17 Sep 2020 17:45:40
Why would anyone be excited about Bale. there was a semblance of a plan, young, hungry players, Bale is simply a galactico signing. tbe higher ups have known for months what it would take to get Sancho and have acted, as usual in an amateurish way again and will now panic buy someone who doesn't fit.

Bale will be injured first game he plays and will be out. it's a disgrace tve club acts like this, no ambition apart from bringing in money.


9.) 17 Sep 2020 17:46:27
I don't think its fair to state he has little desire to play football, Madrid have ostracised Bale for that time period in the main, ZZ didn't exactly want to play him, if I recall Real blocked Bale going to China to play football, let's be fair even if Real wanted to let him go rather than blocking him leavinv these past 2 years who, except the Chinese club, would be able afford him, those that could afford him didn't need him, so that leaves Bale stuck really, easy to say take a pay cut etc but until recently Real wanted a hefty fee for Bale as well so tbh I don't blame Bale for picking up the wage Real agreed to pay him when he signed if they don't want to select him.
The Bale for Wales shows desire and work ethic as did the Bale for Real prior to all of this, I feel if Bale came here he would have a lot to prove and have desire and work hard but as I say his fitness and then injuries would be my concern.


 

 

07 Sep 2020 12:43:01
Hi Ed002, how credible are the various reports stating we are close to signing Sergio Regulion?

{Ed002's Note - "Close to" is a subjective term. Real Madrid need cash and are offering him around. Plenty of clubs have had discussions. Manchester United are an option - although it doesn't seem a priority.}


1.) 07 Sep 2020 13:02:32
Rumours now linking us to Alex Telles of Porto and Mykolenko of Dynamo Kiev. Two more left backs, either the media are just naming LB's after the Reguilon link or maybe the club is seriously considering a move for a LB.

{Ed002's Note - If MU are to buy a LB then AT would be first choice. Pini has been in London dealing with another transfer so perhaps he will have a little time to spare.}


2.) 07 Sep 2020 14:30:29
Ed002, I think it might be a red herring. The "report" suggested Alex Telles agent was in Manchester to tie up a deal. I'm pretty sure United do most of their transfer negotiations etc from their London office.

{Ed002's Note - He has been in London, not Manchester.}


3.) 07 Sep 2020 15:37:05
Thank you Ed for the info, much appreciated.


4.) 07 Sep 2020 16:43:30
ED002, i read that AT has a year left on his contract. Is he a cheaper option to SR or just the overall preferred option?

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - He won’t be cheaper but would be preferred- a good kick in the gonads for Williams if anything happens.}


5.) 07 Sep 2020 17:32:46
hopefully it spurs Brandie on.


6.) 07 Sep 2020 18:52:21
Isnt williams a rb playing left back? Or have i got that wrong.


7.) 07 Sep 2020 18:56:50
Maybe we are going for 3 at the back with Shaw going central, would make sense signing LB then with Williams able to cover both right and left, who knows.


8.) 07 Sep 2020 18:18:04
Gonads, Old School there Ed.


9.) 07 Sep 2020 21:42:42
Think Dalot will go and Williams will move to right back.


10.) 08 Sep 2020 20:36:19
I’d like to see Williams get the cup games and a handful of PL starts at RB. As good as AWB is defensively, he doesn’t have the grit and drive that Williams shows when attacking.


 

 

18 Aug 2020 09:36:44
Hi Ed, hope you are good.
I just wanted to ask have we signed or agreed to sign Marc Jurado and Alvaro Carreras from Barcelona and Real respectively?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}


1.) 18 Aug 2020 09:48:05
What age see there guys?

{Ed002's Note - Kids, 16 perhaps 17.}


2.) 18 Aug 2020 10:44:03
Thought so. Thanks ed002.
Hope all is well.
I know you don't like giving blow by blow updates but i was wondering is there don't truth in the reports that united have reignited their push for Saul?


3.) 18 Aug 2020 14:33:47
Thanks Ed.


4.) 18 Aug 2020 17:38:53
Ken,

I'm thinking ED002 said Saul would be a Pogba replacement if the amateurs let him go.


5.) 18 Aug 2020 20:04:17
Thanks MH.


6.) 19 Aug 2020 22:44:56
Jurado has himself confirmed the transfer on Instagram of all places.

Tommy T 3 - 0 Pep, Tommy T has Peps number doesn't he.
As much as City can be awesome they play any team that has good defenders, DM's and pace in attack they struggle, Ole has his number, Klopp did, Tuchel has, yet Pep thinks he is a genius by dropping Rodri or Fernandinho, he thinks he revolutionises football when he does something like this, like when he tucked his full backs in a bit and they world went mad like it'd never happened before.
Horrible thing is tho Chelsea are 1 CL behind us now.


1.) 30 May 2021 09:44:26
Chelsea do have an amazing squad. Better than us I would say.
Their squad has much more balance than us and have lots of players who are comfortable with the ball and can slot in multiple positions.
Recce James is good as AWB and can also bomb forward.
Chilwell and Shaw are similar.
Their CBs are better too and the CB that loaned out Tomori is better than lindelof.
Kante is a beast in midfield, it's like having a fred, mctom and matic in midfield combined and even better.
If they can somehow flog timo Werner for a top class striker like a harry kane or haaland or even the cheaper Mauro icardi they will be there or thereabouts.
Werner missed 2 easy chances yesterday else they'd be 2-0 or 3-0 up.


2.) 30 May 2021 13:26:38
Reece James is nowhere near as good defensively as AWB, and while he looks better offensively, he is more style over substance IMO. IIRC AWB has more assists, more forward passes and better shooting accuracy this season.


 

 

27 May 2021 09:22:08
Well, what did I expect really, poor all round, in game management shocking again, no real desire to win, they looked more a team than us.
I heard Scholes post game and he was bob on, losing doesn't hurt most of these players enough and to hear Rash with his fake anger and Ole and his pathetic interview just underlines that we aren't anywhere near good enough to be challenging.
Ddg, I don't fully blame him, Ole must know he doesn't save pens.
Just limp all round that performance and it was coming as we ended the season in terrible fashion, what DvDB needs to do to get on a pitch I don't know, absolutely disgraceful the way he's been treated. Axel and Fred on when you need to win a match, absolutely sick of it.
I've been fairly balanced on Ole and the 'process' but enough is enough, there is no real progress, no plan b, play in moments, this is what 3 years in, get an actual world class coach in as we do have talent there, we are still we'll short despite the money wasted over the years.


1.) 27 May 2021 10:04:49
It was very poor, not good enough at all and very disappointing.

Not sure I agree about Rashford's 'fake' anger, I think he is out of form but he is one that genuinely cares, there was no lack of effort, just a poor performance.


2.) 27 May 2021 11:11:35
Just the way he came across to me, lips was moving but not sure he wasn't just saying it as was expected to, if he promises we are going to do better then show us on the pitch, not for a long time.


 

 

25 May 2021 10:08:00
Oblak/ Heaton
Varane/ Torres
Rice/ Tielemans
Grealish
Sancho
Kane/ Haaland

Seems to be who we get linked with Who would we all like in an ideal window.


1.) 25 May 2021 10:20:25
WRD - I will be amazed if we get one of them.


2.) 25 May 2021 10:49:31
More doom and gloom Sim. How ironic given your earlier posts 🙄.


3.) 25 May 2021 12:01:30
Scooby - Hook line and sinker. i was waiting for that one.


4.) 25 May 2021 12:06:28
Always been a fan of Tielemans-might be expensive though . Bissouma at Brighton, Neves at Wolves, the Swiss fella Zakiara not bad either - all possibly available at a decent price -which to be honest is what it will come down to.

I read somewhere Kounde is under 5ft 10 - could be an issue.

Sancho has got that X factor, when you are trying to unlock a defence or when its 3 attackers v 4-5 defenders he skips past a couple with the ball and then you re in. could see him getting 75,000 fans on their feet, putting chances on a plate, I think we all miss that.


5.) 25 May 2021 12:25:14
Kounde is 5'10, Fabio Cannavaro was 5'9 and Lindelof is 6'2.

Who are you backing to win a defensive header?

Height isn't everything when it comes to winning aerial duels, leap, timing, reading of the game and core strength are just as important.


6.) 25 May 2021 15:01:20
Spot on Shappy, who ever said size doesn't matter!


7.) 25 May 2021 15:42:01
Shappy - the tone of your post would indicate Lindelof isn't particularly good in the air - he isn't - won 59:9% of aerial duels last season . Kounde won 58% in a less physical league -so why would you want another defender who isn't very good in the air and would be targeted in PL.?

Answer to your question, I would back Lindelof as most recent statistics show he is better in the air.


8.) 25 May 2021 16:13:06
BFBW, I chose Lindelof as he is taller than the other two and is often coined as a weak link in our defence for his perceived weakness in the air.

Whether he is or isn't wasn't really something I was particularly considering. Just challenging the perception that a taller is definitely better at heading the ball than a shorter player.


9.) 25 May 2021 16:22:00
Lindelof gets bullied in the air and on the ground, he can't be first choice.

Im not saying it should be Kounde, but a change is needes!


10.) 25 May 2021 17:29:11
Kounde has fantastic pace which suits the team as Maguire's partner.
Also, he has a good leap on him.

He was priced out of a move to Man City last summer. This year he is a target for Madrid.
Hugely talented defender.


11.) 25 May 2021 17:58:28
Fair points Shappy. You guys maybe watch a lot more European football than me b I posted a few weeks ago I wish Ole would be ruthless and see bailly and Lindelof just aren't good enough i'd be happy to show them both the door if it meant we got one real quality CH.


12.) 25 May 2021 21:06:54
Steve Bruce shappy? He'd win every header!


13.) 26 May 2021 02:12:53
Heaton, Torres, Rice, Haaland.


 

 

18 May 2021 10:58:41
So Harry Kane, it's either us, City or Chelsea really isn't it.
I just don't see him as City type of forward but then again not often a Kane comes around, I feel he would fit United down to the ground amd would instantly catapult us to title challengers, can't see him going to Chelsea personally.
I guess the overriding thing us he wants to win things so City would be his best bet but I think him coming to us means we win things, depends how he views it all.
Sorry for my rambling thoughts lol but I'd go all out for him despite signing on Cavani.


1.) 18 May 2021 11:38:02
I really don't get everyone saying Kane isn't a City type forward. Pep dropped Aguero because he wasn't doing enough work outside the box, Kane does this work, creates and scores goals. Imagine how much more effective he'd be with the runners that City have. The only question I have is if they have the stomach to pay the fee and wages it would take. If they do, i think it's a no-brainer he finishes up at City, and that would make them very difficult to stop for the next few years.


2.) 18 May 2021 13:10:47
if city get kane they will run away with the prem while pep is the manager.

we should make him and a cb the main 2 places to improve, cavani can't play every game but will give an option to rotate.


3.) 18 May 2021 13:13:12
Kane by himself does not make us title challengers.

Until we have a top rate DM and RW we won't have balance in the team. A top rate CB would be needed before a new striker as well.

A top DM would allow Pogba and Fernandez to both play as creative CMs and Rash could still play LW which is his best position.

Add a creative RW and it will create more space along the forward line and the CF will get more service.

If we just bring in Kane he will struggle for service in the same way as all the other strikers have struggled at times this season. No matter how good his movement is.

If we could still get our targets at CB DM and RW then Kane would be a great option but we won't have the funds for everything.


4.) 18 May 2021 13:18:11
AA80,

I think he would be a good fit for City. If your Kane it is a no brained joining them over Utd.


5.) 18 May 2021 16:04:40
Sadly I think Kane would be fantastic in that City team and would slot in seamlessly. They become so much more potent with him at 9.


 

 

14 May 2021 09:18:10
Last night was an embarrassing mess. A huge chance to beat your main rival and dump them out of the CL for next season and we blew it with a limp display. I am actaully furious still.
Henderson- getting a bit of stick I think, yeah at fault but plenty of players I'd point at before him, young lad, let him grow.
Bailly, Lindelof are just not good enough and the fact everyone says we miss Maguire says it all for me, we don't have any CBs that'll take us places. Axel not good enough sorry to say.
Wan bissaka is improving, I like him but often has the headless chickens about him.
Shaw while going forward is better is still awful at the back.
Fred I wouldn't have at Wrexham, terrible player.
McTom I like but squad player at best.
Those above all need upgraded if we are serious about winning more than 2nd rate cups.
Bruno our best players is diving about screaming like a girl, just stop embarrassing yourself.
Pogba again we need more, don't see the world class in him at all is better when better players are about him playing well.
Rash gets defending presumably cz of his Mary Poppins routine off the pitch, he's been very average for a year, let's not hide behind oh he's injured mantra.
Martial, won't waste my words.
Cavani, top class, type of character you need.
Greenwood needs to be starting each week.
Matic on as predicted, is it worth Donny owing a pair of boots in Manchester, 1 game in a much changed line up and he's out again cz he's not won us the game.
All in all, we need to get out of this mediocrity mindset we have all convinced ourselves is progress and good enough, we came up against a decent team not at their best and they wiped the floor with us.
We will be fighting for top 4 next season when the others improve unless we get rid of the average players and replace them with better and its as simple as that.
We prob still need 5 players and demote others to squad players and we need a manager and recruiter and scout and coached and the mentality that are winners.
Sorry for the rant but let's not get carried away that we have closed any sort of gap, big Summer for us, if Ole believe Maguire, Fred and Rashford Will win us the big pots then we are still in huge trouble.


1.) 14 May 2021 10:56:23
WRD, the only player I'd disagree with you about is Shaw. I make him our player of the season, but he was atrocious last night - as were they all. Rashford appears to be completely immune to criticism, and only ever gets over the top praise. Everything he tries and fails is described by lazy commentators and pundits as an "audacious attempt" - I'd just describe it as a "failed attempt".
AWB is the worst footballer on the ball I have ever seen at elite level. No right winger is going to prosper for us with AWB on the same flank. Fortunately, he is also probably the most precise tackler I've ever seen. If only that was all that's required of a full back
Fred I have seen some improvement in before last night, but it's only improvement that takes him close to the minimum required level, and that's not good enough. Boundless energy - but again, if only that were all that's required of a midfielder. He needs to go, but you can be sure he will start in the EL final
Completely agree re Maguire. Not many of us rate him highly, and yet the rest are so poor that we were shambolic without him
We all know what the minimum requirement for new players is (CB, DM, RW), so let's see the new men at the club rise to the challenge of getting them.

I would never understand why and how did Fred got into manchester United. People like him because he runs a lot, to me as CRUYFF said, you don't have to run if you are well placed.
Fred has awfull first touch and terrible decision making.
I celebrate as if we score a goal every time Ole subs him and even more the few times he is not in the starting 11,it means he olay without the handicap of 10 men.

How are our stats with and without fred? I would guess better with him by a long shot. It is a joke how people speak about him on here, he is a far better player than people give him credit for.

We lost a dead game. Liverpool needed to win desperately. Utd didn't. No point going at individual players too much, it was a flat team performance.

{Ed014's Note - I don’t get this desperation, matters doesn’t matter, I’d be raging if my team didn’t turn up against our bitter rivals what ever the circumstances and if it didn’t matter why were your 2nd string not playing? 🤷‍♂️

Ole wanted to win the game he said it all along, excuses to say otherwise. We was bad and goes to show how short we are against the better teams and Liverpool wasn't at their best either btw. In a way I'm glad we had this rude awakening because hopefully it'll show we need to improve a good deal yet further.
As for calling Fred out and players, why should they be immune for average performances over a long period of time, they get paid to play at a high level for a top club, if they don't perform for period as long as they have they should be called out. Fred is simply not good enough to play for Manchester United, not is Bailly, Lindelof, Scotty Mac, probably Maguire, Shaw and Rashford also, don't get why these guys can get away with sub par performances, well I do, they are English, we won't be at the top table with these players playing regularly for us.

Would you mind listing Freds strengths . not being a smart arse but say out of 10. what you give him for passing, tackling, shooting, creating opportunities, reading the game . just 5-6 categories?

I wouldn't give him any higher than a 6 in any of them and he's in a team battling to win the league, play in the CL etc etc - been in PL 3 years?

Fred is vital for our team, Ole made him vital before he prefers energetic players like Frednand Mactominay rather than technically players like Donny. That doesn't make Fred a good player, important to the team yes, but not good.
We are a reactive team, as such reactive players will be vital to our defending and that's what wrong with this team. We care too much about opponents that we play a high energetic-non technically gifted-player to help us restrict oppositions.

Cavani, if I remember rightly, is not only our best striker but been one of out best defensive players, I know its a rumour but it's also nonsense if true which I doubt it is tbh. The outage if it was true would be huge.

Who doesn't speak English at United? Lol pretty sure maguire gets by just fine, needs to worry about his footballing ability rather than language barrier of him and Scotty Mac.

Tom Heaton
Kieran Trippier
Pau Torres
Jadon Sancho

Another goalie if DdG or Deano leave. Pogba to stay.

My tips for the summer, so no doubt I will be completely wrong on all counts lol.

Saka lol plays in an abysmal arsenal team, I sometimes worry that our fan base has taken mediocrity to heart.

{Ed014's Note - was it just the 4 points we took off you last season.🤦‍♂️😂😂😂

Hes been playing well a lot of the time for United to tbf. To me he would be a good squad asset, used at certain times.

Grim, Rashford gets paid a hell of a lot of money to be a professional footballer and I'm sick of people making excuses for how poor he has been for a year now, out of position, injured, its Ole fault why he is playing garbage, yadda yadda, this is not just 1 game he's been terrible for a long time.

When he hangs his boots up then go and do what you like with all your focus, when your a footballer playing for United concentrate on that and improving yourself for yourself and the club.

As for your insult, laughable really, same can be said of you and others, though tbh Rash should thank himself lucky he plays for this club, I am all for him doing good if he doesn't take his eye off the ball which he clearly has, excuses or not, he's not performing, hasn't for an age and he gets excused because he's a local lad and English, literally anyone else gets called out playing the way he does and as I said that interview was just bluster from someone who can't back his words up on the pitch, happy for him to prove me wrong at any point in the next 12 months but for me he's not someone who will take us to the heights we need, decent player when he used to be on form, we need more than decent in our first eleven if we are going anywhere.

That post match interview was embarrassing tbh. Just lip service for me, I didn't see any real meaning or passion, if its all true, show us not say you promise this and that, the guy needs to start working on his football and forget school dinners.
